Happy New Year 2015

January 3, 2015

Good Evening everyone.  Happy New Year.  Hope you all had a super great, wonderful, safe, Healthy, fun filled, Prosperous, Happy New Year.

I first want to apologize to everyone for not keeping up with my blog the way I wanted to do.

Right before the Christmas holiday, I first had a set back by letting the negative thoughts start creeping in.  I stopped putting nutrients in my body, I gained 6 pounds and then I had a very heartbreaking death of one of my friends occur that totally blindsided me.  I have decided to take on the saying yesterday is gone, today’s almost over and tomorrow is not promised to me.

I have been reading  different quotes that different people have been posting.  I have this as my New Year’s resolution.  I want to laugh a little louder, smile a little bigger, Love a little deeper, give a little more, and walk through life a little slower.  To have Peace amongst us all.  As Wilferd Peterson says:  “Walk with the Dreamers, The Believers, The Courageous, The Cheerful, The Planners, The Doers, The Successful People with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground.”

I also want to tell you all I Love you and all the support you have all given me.  The comments, the feedback the support of reading my blog. I am thankful for 2014 and all the lessons I have learned and the experiences I have had and will have in days and months to come. Tomorrow and everyday after is the first blank page of the rest of my life. I want to accept what is and let go of what was and have faith in what will be.

I am back to having my 16 oz of filtered water with one organic lemon squeezed in it.  Soon I will be sharing some recipes and pictures of meals I will be making myself.

For many years I suffered from Inflammation in my body.  I did not know it. One day I found out about a blood test called CRP (Creative Reactive Protein) it measures the inflammation in and around your heart.  Needless to say it was very high.  Recommended count is under 2-3.  Mine was 19.7.  I then started my research and learned what I could do to help reduce the inflammation.  I took red rice yeast & other supplements and started on my journey.  Below is an article by Dr Mercola about inflammation & how it affects your whole body, which I feel contributed to my heart disease & diabetes.

A wide array of health problems, including but not limited to obesity, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, periodontal disease, stroke, and heart disease all have inflammation as a part of the disease.

The majority of inflammatory diseases start in your gut.

Chronic inflammation in your gut can disrupt the normal functioning of many bodily systems. There also appears to be a connection between certain types of bacteria and body fat that produces a heightened inflammatory response and drives the inflammatory process.

For example, recent research1 suggests that superantigens—toxic molecules produced by pathogenic bacteria such as staph—may play a role in the development of type 2 diabetes through their effect on fat cells. As reported by the featured article:2

“The idea is that when fat cells (adipocytes) interact with environmental agents — in this case, bacterial toxins — they then trigger a chronic inflammatory process… [B]acterial toxins stimulate fat cells to release molecules called cytokines, which promote inflammation…

All staph bacteria make toxins called superantigens — molecules that disrupt the immune system. Schlievert’s research has previously shown that superantigens cause the deadly effects of various staph infections, such as toxic shock syndrome, sepsis, and endocarditis.

… [T]he chronic inflammation caused by the superantigens may also hinder wound healing in diabetic foot ulcers. The ulcers, which affect 15 to 25 percent of people with diabetes, are notoriously difficult to heal and can often lead to amputation.”

‘Perfect Storm’ of Inflammation Promotes Diabetes

Previous research has shown that obese people have different intestinal bacteria than slim people. Lean people tend to have higher amounts of various healthy or beneficial bacteria compared to those who carry a lot of excess weight, who tend to have greater colonization of pathogenic bacteria.

For instance, the human adenovirus-36 (Ad-36) — a cause of respiratory infections and pinkeye – might play a role in promoting obesity by transforming adult stem cells into fat cells that are capable of storing additional fat.

Researchers have also discovered that certain gut bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus (staph) and E. coli, trigger fat cells to produce inflammatory cytokines. Researchers have proposed that this interaction can provoke the development of diabetes, which is a well-known “side effect” of obesity.

Staph bacteria in particular appear to play an important role in diabetes, & according to the featured article, there are two primary reasons for this:

  • Obese people have a tendency to become heavily colonized with staph bacteria
  • Staph bacteria is the most common bacteria found in diabetic foot ulcers

The featured study found that when both staph and E. coli are present (both of which produce superantigens), the inflammatory cytokine response in fat cells are further amplified, thereby boosting your risk of diabetes. According to the co-author of the study, Patrick Schlievert, Ph.D:

“The E. coli that resides in our gut produces LPS [lipopolysaccharide, a toxin] and every day a small amount of this toxin gets into our circulation, but it is generally cleared from the circulation by the liver. However, people colonized by staph bacteria are also chronically exposed to superantigens, which shut down the LPS detoxification pathway.

That creates a synergy between the ‘uncleared’ LPS and the superantigen. All these two molecules do is cause inflammation and cytokine production. So in essence, their presence together creates a perfect storm for inflammation.”

Previous studies have come to similar conclusions. For example, one study3found that babies with high numbers of bifidobacteria (beneficial bacteria) and low numbers of Staphylococcus aureus, appeared to be protected from excess weight gain.

This may also be one reason why breast-fed babies have a lower risk of obesity, as bifidobacteria flourish in the guts of breast-fed babies.

The Link Between Gum Inflammation and Heart Health

A related news item further highlights the role of inflammation in the development of chronic disease. According to Medical News Today:4

“Researchers at Columbia University in New York suggest that if you look after your gums, you could also be reducing your risk of heart disease. They claim that improving dental care slows the speed with which plaque builds up in the arteries.5

This isn’t the first time researchers have found that your oral health can have a significant impact on your cardiovascular and heart health. For example, a 2010  study6 found that those with the worst oral hygiene increased their risk of developing heart disease by a whopping 70 percent, compared to those who brush their teeth twice a day.

In this prospective study, improved gum health was shown to significantly slow down the progression of atherosclerosis—the buildup of plaque in your arteries, which increases your risk of heart disease, stroke, and death. According to the featured article:7

“Previous studies have linked an increase in carotid IMT [intima-medial thickness] of 0.033 mm per year (about 0.1 mm over 3 years), to a more than double increase in risk of heart attack and stroke. In this study, the participants whose gum health got worse over the 3 years showed a 0.1 mm increase in carotid IMT, compared with the participants whose gum health improved.

Co-author Panos N. Papapanou, professor at Columbia’s College of Dental Medicine, says: ‘Our results show a clear relationship between what is happening in the mouth and thickening of the carotid artery, even before the onset of full-fledged periodontal disease. This suggests that incipient periodontal disease should not be ignored.’”

Here, bacteria are again playing a preeminent role, as periodontal disease is the result of the colonization of certain bacteria in your mouth. This bacterial profile, by the way, is again linked to an imbalance of  beneficial and pathogenic bacteria in your gut. A few months after I added fermented vegetables to my daily diet, I was able to cut down my dental cleaning visits from every month to every quarter. I’ve had a longstanding problem of persistent plaque formation, and the addition of fermented foods proved to be an essential missing ingredient for me to successfully address this problem.

It’s important to realize that periodontal disease involves both bone and the tissue that is in contact with that bone. From this contact, bacteria and toxic inflammatory compounds can easily enter your blood stream. Once in your blood stream, these toxic compounds can harm the lining of your blood vessels, which can lead to both strokes and heart attacks. So, reducing inflammation is of primary importance for your overall health, and brushing your teeth regularly is one way to combat chronic inflammation in your body.

Findings such as these offer potent testimony to the fact that heart disease is a condition that can be prevented, most of the time, by leading a healthy lifestyle — which includes the simple act of brushing your teeth regularly to prevent periodontal disease, and optimizing your gut health by eating foods that allow healthy bacteria to flourish and keep pathogenic bacteria in check.

Diet and Environmental Factors Affect Your Gut Flora

I have long stated that it’s generally a wise choice to “reseed” your body with good bacteria, ideally by regularly eating non-pasteurized, traditionally fermented foods such as:

One of the reasons why fermented foods are so beneficial is because they contain lactic acid producing bacteria, which has been shown to be particularly beneficial for weight loss, as well as a wide variety of other beneficial bacteria. Ideally, you want to eat a variety of fermented foods to maximize the variety of bacteria you’re getting. If for whatever reason you decide not to eat fermented foods, taking a high-quality probiotic supplement is definitely recommended.

Keep in mind that eating fermented foods may not be enough if the rest of your diet is really poor. Your gut bacteria are an active and integrated part of your body, and as such are vulnerable to your overall lifestyle. If you eat a lot of processed foods for instance, your gut bacteria are going to be compromised because processed foods in general will destroy healthy microflora and feed bad bacteria and yeast. Your gut bacteria are also very sensitive to the following factors—all of which should ideally be avoided as much as possible in order to optimize your gut flora:

  • Antibiotics, including antibiotic-traces found in meats from factory farmed meats and animal products
  • Agricultural chemicals, especially glyphosate
  • Chlorinated water
  • Antibacterial soap
  • Pollution

Your Diet Is Key for Reducing Chronic Inflammation

As you can see, the running thread linking a wide variety of common health problems—from obesity and diabetes to heart disease and stroke—is chronic inflammation. Clearly, addressing your oral health is an important step, but the real key to reducing chronic inflammation in your body starts with your diet.

Diet accounts for about 80 percent of the health benefits you reap from a healthful lifestyle, and keeping inflammation in check is a major part of these benefits. It’s important to realize that dietary components can either trigger or preventinflammation from taking root in your body.

For example, whereas trans fats and sugar, particularly fructose, will increase inflammation, eating healthy fats such as animal-based omega-3 fats found in krill oil, or the essential fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA) will help to reduce them. Research published in the Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology8 two years ago again confirmed that dietary supplementation with krill oil effectively reduced inflammation and oxidative stress. To reduce or prevent inflammation in your body, you’ll want to AVOID the following dietary culprits:

  • Sugar/fructose and grains (If your fasting insulin level is not lower than three, consider eliminating grains and sugars until you optimize your insulin level, as insulin resistance this is a primary driver of chronic inflammation)
  • Oxidized cholesterol (cholesterol that has gone rancid, such as that from overcooked, scrambled eggs)
  • Foods cooked at high temperatures
  • Trans fats

Replacing processed foods with whole, ideally organic, foods will automatically address most of these factors, especially if you eat a large portion of your food raw. Equally important is making sure you’re regularly reseeding your gut with beneficial bacteria, as discussed above. The ideal way, again, is by adding a variety of non-pasteurized traditionally fermented foods to your daily diet. To help you get started on a healthier diet, I suggest following my free Optimized Nutrition Plan, which starts at the beginner phase and systematically guides you step-by-step to the advanced level.

Optimizing your vitamin D levels is another important aspect of optimizing your gut health and immune function. According to recent research, vitamin D appears to be nearly as effective as animal-based omega-3 fats in countering inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis for example. One of the reasons for this may be because it helps your body produce over 200 anti-microbial peptides capable of fighting all sorts of infections. In simple terms, if you’re vitamin D deficient, your immune system will not activate to do its job. And since vitamin D also modulates (balances) your immune response, it helps prevent overreaction in the form of inflammation.

Grounding—An Underused Anti-Inflammatory Lifestyle Strategy

Another simple lifestyle strategy that can help prevent chronic inflammation is grounding or Earthing. Stated in the simplest terms possible, earthing is simply walking barefoot; grounding your body to the Earth. Your skin in general is a very good conductor, so you can connect any part of your skin to the Earth, but if you compare various parts there is one that is especially potent, and that’s right in the middle of the ball of your foot; a point known to acupuncturists as Kidney 1 (K1). It’s a well-known point that conductively connects to all of the acupuncture meridians and essentially connects to every nook and cranny of your body.

By looking at what happens during grounding, the answer to why chronic inflammation is so prevalent, and what is needed to prevent it, is becoming better understood. When you’re grounded there’s a transfer of free electrons from the Earth into your body. And these free electrons are probably the most potent antioxidants known to man. These antioxidants are responsible for the clinical observations from grounding experiments, such as beneficial changes in heart rate and blood pressure, decreased skin resistance, and decreased levels of inflammation. Furthermore, researchers have also discovered that grounding actually thins your blood, making it less viscous.

This discovery can have a profound impact on cardiovascular disease, which is now the number one killer in the world. Virtually every aspect of cardiovascular disease has been correlated with elevated blood viscosity. It turns out that when you ground to the earth, your zeta potential quickly rises, which means your red blood cells have more charge on their surface, which forces them apart from each other. This action causes your blood to thin and flow easier. It also causes your blood pressure to drop.

By repelling each other, your red blood cells are also less inclined to stick together and form a clot. Additionally, if your zeta potential is high, which grounding can facilitate, you not only decrease your heart disease risk but also your risk of multi-infarct dementias, where you start losing brain tissue due to micro-clotting in your brain. To learn more about this simple but potent method, please see my interview with Dr. Oschman, who is widely recognized as an authority in the biophysics of energy medicine. Grounding may also work by increasing the structured water in your cells.

For Optimal Health, Address and Avoid Chronic Inflammation

Remember, the micro-organisms living in your digestive tract form a very important “inner ecosystem” that influences countless aspects of health. More specifically, the type and quantity of organisms in your gut interact with your body in ways that can either prevent or encourage the development of chronic inflammation, which is at the heart of many diseases, including heart disease and diabetes. The composition of your microflora may even dictate the ease with which you’re able to shed unwanted pounds.

Since virtually all of us are exposed to factors that destroy beneficial bacteria in your gut, such as antibiotics (whether you take them for an illness or get them from contaminated animal products), chlorinated water, antibacterial soap, agricultural chemicals, and pollution, ensuring your gut bacteria remain balanced should be considered an ongoing process.

Cultured foods like raw milk yogurt and kefir, some cheeses, and fermented vegetables are good sources of natural, healthy bacteria. So my strong recommendation would be to make cultured or fermented foods a regular part of your diet; this can be your primary strategy to optimize your body’s good bacteria. If you do not eat fermented foods on a regular basis, taking a high-quality probiotic supplement would be a wise decision for most people.

Besides that, replacing processed foods, sugar/fructose and grains with whole foods is a critical step to address chronic inflammation. Optimizing your vitamin D levels and making sure you’re getting plenty of animal-based omega-3 fat in your diet is also important, along with grounding, to keep inflammation in check.

Debbie’s Holiday Message

December 16, 2014

Good Afternoon everyone. Hope everyone has had a great week.  Weather here has been cold in the 20’s, cool in the 30’s, rainy and in between in the 40’s.  I am very Thankful however that it has not snowed yet. Amen to that.  I have been busy promoting Liana Werner Gray’s Earth Diet Book, as well as getting donations to be able to give books to people who need it.  I have also been busy getting ready for the holidays.  Here are some of the many ways people celebrate their holiday, and where we get some of the holiday traditions we use, and where it comes from.

In German, they use glass ornaments, gingerbread men, hand-carved wooden angels and tinsel.  Years ago they used lighted candles, paper roses, cookies and fruit.  They say Frohliche Weihnachten to say Merry Christmas.

In Italy, they say Buone Feste Natalizie to say Merry Christmas.  The tradition that we get from Italy is the carnivale mask from their celebration called Carnevale.

In Mexico, we get the poinsettia flower plant.  They say Feliz Navidad to say Merry Christmas.   Breaking  a pinata is part of Christmas Eve in Mexico. Treasures like toys or candy drop onto the floor for children to retrieve.

In the Jewish religion Hanukkah is celebrated.  It lasts eight days.  It honors a Jewish victory in war and a miracle in which a tiny pot of oil lasted eight days & nights. About five million people in the United States celebrate Hanukkah. Candles are lit each night in a special candle-holder called a menorah.

In the African-American holiday, Kwanzaa is celebrated during the last week of December.  Candles are lit to represent the virtues of the people. Seven important ideas are celebrated.  Unity, Self-Determination, Collective Work & Responsibility, Cooperative Economics, Purpose, Creativity, & Faith.

In Muslim Americans, they use a different calendar from our traditional one to determine their holidays.  Sometimes in December, Eid is celebrated. During this time, families sacrifice animals and share the meat with each other and the poor.

In Australia, Christmas is celebrated a lot like the United States of America.  Both Countries have a mix of ethnic groups.  Backgrounds are varied. They have traditional dinners like Turkey, Ham, cold cuts and steamed pudding.  Christians in USA and Australians consider Christmas a time for remembering the true meaning of Christmas.  A time for remembering the birth of Jesus and the spiritual meaning of Christmas.  For many, Christmas will begin with families attending a mid-night mass. 70% of Australians are either Catholic, Anglican or Lutheran. After the mid-night Mass, a little sleep is attempted.  For many, the children in various households, wake up the family at dawn.  Swag Man takes over for our Santa. Swag Man wears a brown Akubra, a blue singlet and long baggy shorts because of the hot weather.  He spends all winter under Uluru with his merry dingoes and then at Christmas time, he gets in his huge four-wheel drive and sets off through the red dust to deliver his presents.  Gifts are unwrapped and the joy of Christmas begins.   For many with relatives and friends overseas, it is a mad scramble to get an early phone call to relatives worldwide.

To all my friends celebrating Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas or any other Holiday tradition you follow this month, May you have Health, Wealth, Inner Peace, Happiness,  and Love, today and always.

To all my friends celebrating Hanukkah.  May you have Happiness and Love to everyone
  •  Happy Kwanzaa
  •  Merry Christmas

Debbie’s 2nd Year

DECEMBER 9, 2014

Good Evening Everyone. Hope you all had a Terrific Tuesday. Time goes by so fast.  It has been four days since I’ve written. Today has been a weather challenge day on Long Island, NY.  We had 3 inches of rain and wind gusts giving us flooding, tree branches down and some people lost their electric.  I personally have a sump pump in my basement that helps with the flooding, but then we need to get the wet vac out to get the rest of the water out.  The dampness does get to my bones.  They are predicting more rain for the next 3 days.  Not fun getting through the flooding streets, and abandoned cars.  I am still doing my usual meditations, visualizations, mirror work and tapping exercises.  Try and do at least one thing everyday for at least 30 days to change your habits and thought process.

I just watched a U Tube presentation The Quest for the Cures $50K Charitable Donation Presentation from the Truth About Cancer Ty Bollinger. He was able to donate 10k to 4 different organizations and to one boy Jared, who Make a Wish Foundation denied his wish to go to Disney because he refused to take chemo and go the natural holistic route to cure himself. It is a very touching video if you can watch it.

Did you know how harmful Soy is? Read the below story about Soy Increases Breast Cancer cell spreading. So many of us have trusted that it’s an excellent source of protein and felt good when choosing soy. Not only is unfermented soy not good for us, it does harm!! Soy is everywhere so it pays to check labels and avoid wherever you can. Various previous reports by a variety of scientist and cancer foundations have encouraged consumption of soy to reduce breast cancer. There has been a great deal of research that completely disproves these claims. Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York’s researchers are now warning women that adding soy to your diet will increase the rate of breast cancer cell spreading.

The Chinese did not eat unfermented soybeans as they did other legumes such as lentils because the soybean contains large quantities of natural toxins or “anti nutrients”. A 1998 survey found that the average daily amount of soy protein consumed in Japan was about eight grams for men and seven for women – less than two teaspoons. Americans are consuming amounts far exceeding this quantity.

First among the anti-nutrients in soy are potent enzyme inhibitors that block the action of trypsin and other enzymes needed for protein digestion.These inhibitors are large, tightly folded proteins that are not completely deactivated during ordinary cooking. They can produce serious gastric distress, reduced protein digestion and chronic deficiencies in amino acid uptake. In test animals, diets high in trypsin inhibitors cause enlargement and pathological conditions of the pancreas, including cancer.

                           Accelerates The Progression of Breast Cancer

Researchers at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center compared tumor tissues from before and after a 30-day regimen of consuming a soy supplement while a control group took a placebo. They found changes in the expressions of certain genes, that are known to promote cell growth, in those women taking the soy supplement.

The findings led them to conclude the soy protein could potentially accelerate the progression of the disease. The study states: ‘These data raise concern that soy may exert a stimulating effect on breast cancer in a sub set of women.’

Thousands of women are now consuming soy in the belief that it protects them against breast cancer. Yet, in 1996, researchers found that women consuming soy protein isolate had an increased incidence of epithelial hyperplasia, a condition that presages malignancies. A year later, dietary genistein was found to stimulate breast cells to enter the cell cycle – a discovery that led the study authors to conclude that women should not consume soy products to prevent breast cancer.

“It’s a myth that soy prevents breast cancer,” says Kayla T. Daniel, PhD, author of The Whole Soy Story: The Dark Side of America’s Favorite Health Food. “Numerous studies show that soy can cause, contribute to or even accelerate the growth of cancer.”

All those taking part in this study had recently had breast biopsies and were diagnosed with stage one or two breast cancer. They were all scheduled to have a mastectomy or lumpectomy two to three weeks later.The researchers said it is not yet clear if the effects can be reversed.

                                                  Genetically Modified

Any ingredient listed as soybean or soy on any product ingredient list has a 93% chance of being GMO if it is not listed as organic. Soy has one of the highest percentages of contamination by pesticides of any of our foods. Even organic soy cannot be trusted. Soy is very problematic crop. Non-organic sources of soy in many agricultural practices are being sold as organic.

In 2011, the USDA uncovered a plot to import fraudulent organic certificates produced by an uncertified supplier in China. The Chinese firm used the counterfeit certificate to represent non-organic crops, including soybeans, millet and buckwheat, as certified organic. These types of things are happening every year and only a fraction are being discovered. Even domestically sourced organic soybean crops are now being investigated for having GMO origins. Organic soy also does not change the toxicity of unfermented sources so abundant in the food supply.

                                  Most Soy is Unfermented

Phytates in unfermented soy products actually obstruct absorption of protein and four key minerals: calcium, magnesium, iron, and zinc better than fermented sources. In their natural form, soybeans contain phytochemicals with toxic effects on the human body. The three major anti-nutrients are phytates, enzyme inhibitors and goitrogens. These anti-nutrients are the way nature protects the soybean plant so that it can live long enough to effectively reproduce. They function as the immune system of the plant, offering protection from the radiation of the sun, and from invasion by bacteria, viruses, or fungi. They make the soybean plant unappetizing to foraging animals.

All plants have some anti-nutrient properties, but the soybean plant is especially rich in these chemicals. If they are not removed by extensive preparation such as fermentation or soaking, soybeans are one of the worst foods a person can eat. The net protein utilization of unfermented soy is 61 which quite low. The most common soy (99%) sold at major grocery retailers in soy milks and processed foods is unfermented soy. It is deadly.

Unfermented soy has been linked to digestive distress, immune system breakdown, PMS, endometriosis, reproductive problems for men and women, allergies, ADD and ADHD, higher risk of heart disease and cancer, malnutrition, and loss of libido.

Fermented sources of soy such as natto, miso, tempeh and some fermented tofus are likely the only types of soy that should be consumed by humans and that’s only if you can get around the crap shoot that they’re non-GMO and organic (which there is no guarantee despite labeling).

When food is eaten, digestive enzymes such as amylase lipase and protease are secreted into the digestive tract to help break it down and free nutrients for assimilation into the body. The high content of enzyme inhibitors such as trypsin in unfermented soybeans interferes with this process and makes carbohydrates and proteins from soybeans impossible to completely digest.

                                                           Soy Dangers

-High levels of phytic acid in soy reduce assimilation of calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc. Phytic acid in soy is not neutralized by ordinary preparation methods such as soaking, sprouting and long, slow cooking. High phytate diets have caused growth problems in children.

-Trypsin inhibitors in soy interfere with protein digestion and may cause pancreatic disorders. In test animals soy containing trypsin inhibitors caused stunted growth.
-Soy phytoestrogens disrupt endocrine function and have the potential to cause infertility and to promote breast cancer in adult women.
-Soy phytoestrogens are potent antithyroid agents that cause hypothyroidism and may cause thyroid cancer. In infants, consumption of soy formula has been linked to autoimmune thyroid disease.
-Vitamin B12 analogs in soy are not absorbed and actually increase the body’s requirement for B12.
-Soy foods increase the body’s requirement for vitamin D.
-Fragile proteins are denatured during high temperature processing to make soy protein isolate and textured vegetable protein.
-Processing of soy protein results in the formation of toxic lysinoalanine and highly carcinogenic nitrosamines.
-Free glutamic acid or MSG, a potent neurotoxin, is formed during soy food processing and additional amounts are added to many soy foods.
-Soy foods contain high levels of aluminum which is toxic to the nervous system and the kidneys.

Debbie’s 366th Day

December 4, 2014

Good evening everyone. Hope you all had a Terrific Thursday. It was a damp cloudy day.  I hope you all enjoyed my one year blog.  Today, I did my meditations, visualizations, mirror work and tapping exercises.  It was a busy day for me today. I had some bills to pay, I had to go to the cardiologist today for an echo cardiogram.  Don’t know results, but I think it will be ok.  I went to Sherry’s for some organic veggies for my salads.  I worked on my new Facebook page DebbieSavesHerLife.  You can write a comment, request or question you may have on any of my blogs.

For people that want to live to at least 100, you need to keep a positive attitude and to live with a passion. Eat good organic non gmo foods, exercise by moderately walking, biking, gardening, house cleaning.  Do not smoke or drink excessively.  Have good relationships with family and friends, stay mentally active and always learn something new, Have some form of Faith/spirituality. Be able to forgive and let go of stress.

From the Organic and Non-gmo report – Did you know Orange Tomatoes May be Healthier than the Red Tomatoes?  Usually deep color veggies and fruits indicates antioxidants that help our heart ad brain health.  A study by Ohio State University researchers published in the Journal of Agricultural Food and Chemistry found that a variety  of orange colored tomatoes called tangerine provided more readily lycopene that red tomatoes.  Lycopene is an antioxidant that has been shown to reduce risks of cancer, cardiovascular disease and macular degeneration.

Consuming eggs regularly does not boost cardiovascular risk.  In 1999 that’s right 15 years ago, a report from the Harvard school of Public Health published in the journal of american medical association that tracked 110,000 american adults for up to 14 years found no increased risk of coronary heart disease or stroke among healthy men and women who ate as much as seven eggs a week vs those who ate less than ope per week.    There was a correlation between high egg consumption and heart disease among diabetic people that warrants further research.

MY DAILY INTAKE TODAY WAS:

         BREAKFAST:  I HAD 16 OZ FILTERED WATER WITH ONE ORGANIC LEMON SQUEEZED IN IT.

                  LUNCH:  I HAD ANOTHER 16 OZ FILTERED WATER WITH PHRESH GREENS MIXED IN.     http://www.phreshproducts.com.

                 DINNER:  I HAD A BOWL OF ORGANIC LENTIL SOUP.  I ALSO HAD AN ORGANIC SALAD SIMILAR TO YESTERDAYS WITH KALE, SPINACH, CELERY, TOMATO, BEETS, CUCUMBER.

I am grateful I meditated. I am grateful I did my visualization exercises. I am grateful I did my mirror work. I am grateful I did my Tapping exercises. I am grateful I am doing my blog for one year. I am grateful I have been able to help other people. I am grateful I am aware of my emotions, feelings and losses. I am grateful I am not giving up when my emotions are trying to sabotage me.

Debbie’s 365th Day – One Year Anniversary

December 3, 2014

20141205_120152-1

Good Evening Everyone. Hope you all had a Wonderful Wednesday. It was cool today with some drizzle rain.  Well, Happy One Year Anniversary to me.  I succeeded and blogged everyday for one year. A Special Thank You to everyone who follows me and reads and comments on my blog.  Thank you to Liana Werner-Gray for her support, mentoring, positive inputs, and education.  I also want to thank my husband for putting up with me during good times and bad. Thank you to all my friends who have supported me. There were days that I did not think I would make it. There were days I had no information, but searched. There were days I did not feel up to doing the blog.  There were the holidays that took some time, and I would want to skip that day.  There were days when I went away with my husband especially on our wedding anniversary and I would of loved to take the day off.  There were days I was late in posting, but overall, I did post something everyday because I did not want to disappoint anyone. It also kept me accountable to you and myself.  I did my best and feel good about it. I would like to thank everyone who reads my blogs and supported my struggles with positive comments and gave me feedback. This year has been amazingly positive.  I am healthier,  I lost weight, I am more positive, I get rid of the negative seeds that pop up in my thoughts, I am helping other people in a lot of different ways. I am learning something everyday.  I am more grateful than a year ago.  I have met a lot of caring, wonderful people.  I have stepped out of my comfort zone many times and continue to do so for more growth.  I am going to continue blogging, but not everyday. I will be doing 3-5 blogs a week, more if I have time on subjects I think you might want to know about. I plan to use my time I don’t blog on bettering and improving my knowledge to pass on to you for more information . I also want to focus more time on moving and exercising and losing more weight.  I do do not want to, but need to go to the gym more.  Even though I have lost weight this year, it could of been better if I exercised more.  I also want to pursue the business my husband and I are working on.  I have also started a Facebook Page anyone can comment or request what you would like to know about.  It is  DebbieSavesHerLife.  You can also still comment on the blog from Earth Diet.

I checked the stats I get from the wordpress as to which blog was the most read.  Can you guess?  What was your favorite?  Well it looks like the winner was day 245. There was 51 comments on this days subject.  I listened to and talked about the Detox summit. The two recordings I wrote about was the Environment being toxic. Soram Khalsa, Md. spoke about Environment is Toxic and it’s making us Toxic: epigenetic Influences. Also, I listened to Kelly Brogan, Md who spoke about Toxicity and Impact in Women and Children’s Health. The other subject that day was Martha Herbert, MD, Ph.D. on Autism and Detox. I Also, listened to Elson Haas, Md. on Staying Healthy With Nutrition. Dr Hass is a practicing physician of Integrated Family Medicine, “Father of Clinical Detoxification”, Author Staying Healthy With Nutrition and Detox. He talked about:
Incorporating traditional medicine approaches into a nutritional,       biochemical detoxification
The importance of following the cycles of nature, seasons and the body’s rhythm in detox and healing
How to personalize a detoxification by becoming aware of the body’s needs. 

The second runner up was day 186 with 31 comments. The first recording was with Megan Dalla-Camina’s. Her goal is to create systems and recipes for women to thrive!  Megan’s personal route to well-being began when she reached adrenal fatigue and work-related burnout. The second topic was Jessica Ainscough.  She went from this happy existence to cancer patient in one morning.  She realized her lifestyle had to change, and as she slowly rebuilt her health, Jessica started to recognize that health and fitness could have been just as pleasurable as her past excess.  All it took was a will not to look at health as a struggle, but as a daily decision to honor the body. And the third topic was Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., and teaches the art of resilience. Joan distills the latest research into what makes the difference between those who are resilient and those who aren’t. She shares the simple steps you can take now to quickly enhance the areas of the brain that govern this vital trait—including the “Gear-Shift Breathing” exercise, which can be done anytime, anywhere, to immediately reset your brain chemistry! The most views I received in one day was 24 in one day November 28th, on grateful gifts, then 23 views on November 9th on stress and third November 16 with 22 views.

Debbie’s 364th Day

December 2, 2014

Good Evening Everyone. Hope you all had a terrific Tuesday. It was cold and rainy today. I cannot believe that tomorrow I will have been doing my daily blog for one whole year. I know for a fact doing this daily blog has helped me to be a better person. I hope everyone who has read my blog has also been enlightened and helped in your body, mind and spirit in some way. Today I started by doing my meditations, visualizations, mirror work and tapping exercises. I made some business calls and went on the computer to find out how to use a Fit Bit. My husband bought me a product called Fit Bit to measure your exercise, sleep, food intake, etc. As I have said before, I am not very technically minded. I find difficulty with modern technology. I try to comprehend but sometimes I succeed and sometimes I don’t. Well this is not for me. I charged the chip, (I guess the brain), thing that was suppose to be charged for 4 hours. I put it on my wrist. I downloaded the products instructions, manual, and app. I still can’t figure out how it works or how to see the results it is collecting. There is no number to call, so I will have to go to where I bought it to see if they can help me.  I went to the chiropractor and picked up some organic kale, tomatoes.  My husband and I then went to our business meeting.

If you are holiday shopping, remember what Liana wrote on the Holiday to do list:

WHEN YOU                                                  ALSO GIVE

2.  Wrap Gifts                                                    Wrap someone in a Hug

3.  Send Gifts                                                     Send Peace

4,  Shop for food                                               Donate Food

5.  Make Cookies                                               Give Love

6.  See the lights                                                Be the Lights

Another inspirational quote from Wayne Dyer:  Everything is Either an Opportunity to Grow or an Obstacle to Keep you from Growing. You get to Choose.
