The purpose of this forum is for Turdites to have an ongoing discussion about surviving and thriving in the midst of a corruted food supply. It is my contention that we can all eat healthy despite the ever increasing poison food that is stocking our grocery store shelves. You are welcome to post anything relating to healthy food, the human body and how it functions, or poison food and how it screws up our bodies. I don't claim to know everything, but I have done a lot of research and I know many other Turdites are very versed on this subject. It is high time for us to pool our knowledge. What good is a big pile of prescious metals if we are sick?
Healthy Food and Healthy Living
Excellent forum idea. I was going to pm you that your posts/advice about health are wonderful.
We made an interesting observation Friday night while at a restaurant. Our server was a nice, fit, young man.We had a conversation about where the wonderful crusty multi grain bread was from. It led to a discussion that now that he no longer eats refined grains and sugars he is so much more healthy.
Eating healthily by the few are becoming more and more. I believe it's another example that the masses are waking up, albeit slowly.
Went with my old standbyes
bee pollen, vitamin D, multivitamin, C, and colloidal silver
Seems to work every time. My doctor mentioned I shouldn't overdue D, as it can lead to kidney stones.
Nice place you have here...
Oh yeah, almost forgot to mention I have been getting the wife to buy organic foods as much as possible. Beef, Chicken and milk mostly
No USA gulf or Pacific seafoods.
You start popping Nexium because of heartburn.
Reduced stomach acid reduces Mg absorption below the already low levels in our food supply.
The imbalance of Ca-Mg ions constricts blood vessels and also affects contraction of heart muscle. Free Ca ions are free to attach to your arteries.
For those with weaker hearts, this could be fatal. Mg deficiency also affects nerve function and relaxation of skeletal muscles.
I am always interested in your research, I know there is much I can do to improve my health, even though I consider myself reasonably healthy. Unfortunately, I tend to survive on cans of Chef Boyardee ravioli,
diet coke, and nicotine, and rarely consider the ramifications of my blatantly unhealthy eating.
Sometimes I even consider giving up my midnight box of Oreos and milk, but not seriously.
I have concluded that I am thoroughly addicted to junk.
My wife and daughter have taken up healthy eating, good for them, maybe if I read your column every day, my own diet will begin to gross me out as it seems to do to other people.
I'd like to welcome Mrs. AG to the forum, it's nice that she takes an interest in what you do.
Mrs. Fix tends to consider my "virtual friends" a waste of my time, at least on that we disagree.
Back to work, I'll look in on you later.
When I was taking it my Mg levels got so low that my heartbeat got irregular and constricted back muscles started bulging my disks. After two weeks on Mg citrate (going on 5 years ago) both problems went away.
I used to take apple cider vinegar, but didn't notice the effects as much.
Thank you for creating a new thread. This topic is very interesting. I live in the west of the West Coast, and while most of our food growing area has been taken over by wine grapes, we still have a healthy local food economic culture.
during the time I have been participating in the campaign to get GMO foods labeled I have overheard some amazing conversations. From the Aspergers kid who improves on local natural foods, to the number of gluten intolerant people now living in America.
I am with Mr. fix on the enjoyment of nicotine but everywhere else have moved off the industrial food system. Even the nicotine is now delivered by an electronic device.
my two year journey to eat outside of the industrial food system has me feeling younger on the eve of my 49th birthday then I felt on my 40th.
I am going to bookmark this form and return frequently. Next time I post I will tell the story of the oldest agricultural organization in America battling against Monsanto.
I've been happy to see, over the years, organic sections in main stream supermarkets. Most of them try to source local as well. I suspect some are operated at a loss but do my part to support. The managers do seem to be proud of what they are doing and happy to talk about their produce. Change happens slowly but awareness is spreading.
Mrs. S recently read about many health benefits from using organic coconut oil. I was not immediately impressed with her findings until I started using the product. First thing I noticed is it does not have any hint of coconut flavor, it comes in a jar and has a Crisco consistency with a very low melting point. Rub some on your hands and body and they will feel amazingly soft with no lotion like residue.
We started cooking with it and noticed how well it works for greasing a frying pan (cooking eggs) although I'm sure the real health benefits are lost when using it this way. I'm thinking it could be used as a spread or mixed into a vegetable dip to gain better ingestion benefits.
Here's a link to 10 evidence based benefits I found on the internet, but there are many more then the few that are listed here...
1. Coconut Oil Contains a Unique Combination of Fatty Acids With Powerful Medicinal Properties
2. Populations That Eat a LOT of Coconut Are Among The Healthiest People on The Planet
3. Coconut Oil Can Increase Your Energy Expenditure, Helping You Burn More Fat
4. The Lauric Acid in Coconut Oil Can Kill Bacteria, Viruses and Fungi, Helping to Stave Off Infections
5. Coconut Oil Can Kill Your Hunger, Making You Eat Less Without Even Trying
6. The Fatty Acids in Coconut Oil Are Turned into Ketones, Which Can Reduce Seizures
7. Coconut Oil Can Improve Blood Cholesterol Levels and May Lower Your Risk of Heart Disease
8. Coconut Oil Can Protect Hair Against Damage, Moisturize Skin and Function as Sunscreen
9. The Fatty Acids in Coconut Oil Can Boost Brain Function in Alzheimer’s Patients
10. Coconut Oil Can Help You Lose Fat, Especially The Dangerous Fat in Your Abdominal Cavity
11. (Bonus benefit) Because of the natural anti biotic properties of this oil I had the brain storm idea of using it as a personal lubricant. Mrs S and I are getting older and have allergies to petroleum based lubricants. After a nice movie date I proposed using the oil on us! She is an RN and Licensed Mid-Wife and was a little hesitant at first to try it. But now she swears by it and recommends it's use to all her friends and colleagues. The part I like is no oil slick residue is left over like when we used petroleum products and no weird petroleum smell (it has no smell at all)
Ok, maybe a little TMI for many readers but I thought I should throw #11 in there anyway.
