Has your son been tested for SIBO?
If you do, for gods sake avoid. (Not mentioning the GMOs and the roundup!!!)
It is illegal in NZ but I guess it still sneaks in in imported pasta etc due to loopholes. Do yourselves a favour - if you do have bromided flour (& eat it) - take your Iodine & Selenium + Vits.
Seem a shame to have to compensate/nullify the stuff you have to pay to eat, but hey - better safe than cancerous I say
I am personally avoiding anything not organic and made in NZ. Apologies Australia & USA producers. Do your consumer research or die the slow death of "why have we lost our market share???"
My regular Dr. has wanted me to start taking medications to control my A1C problems. (no drugs for us). It seemed like it just climbed a bit, every year and my last blood test, a year ago was 6.8. With the studying we have done on cancer cures and everything else, I decided to try some of these things. Cutting back on carbs (big time), using cinnamon and raw honey, goji juice and diatomaceous earth.
I do not visit my local doctor very often, however, he sent me a letter and said to come in for my yearly blood tests. That was yesterday. I was hoping that I was not in the 7 range. I was shocked, it was a 5.8 on the A1C, the lowest that I have ever received. Now the question is: Which product has worked for me or it may be a combination. Other tests also came into a better range.
Congrats on your improved numbers. Does your Dr. Know about your dietary changes and have any idea about which of the items may be helping, or is he just the full medical science/pharmaceutical type?
We use gojo berries on our cereal in the morning along with a good diet light on the carbs. Nearly all of my tests have had numbers in the normal range for the last 25 years. Regular exercise is also a big part of our lifestyle.
Is the typical type. He may ask later but will stick with the pills of death.
Your 5.8 number is just above the threshold of 5.7 for non diabetic blood sugar. Quite an improvement. Back in the early nineties my cholesterol (205 of which 75 was good cholesterol) and triglyceride numbers were marginally high. I did a few diet changes and brought those numbers back into line. Another thing I did was I learned to manage stress much better and that has led to lower BP. I have Bicardia (low heart rate) which I learned about in 1998 just after my ACL replacement surgery.
I hope all is progressing well with Linda and she's enjoying her skiing, I have over 130 days in so far this season. My primary care physician is old school as well but very good. Getting older isn't any fun. If it was easy everyone would do it.
Yes my number dropped a full point and that was an eye opener. Linda is doing well and she is doing her alternative treatments every day. She loves to hit those slopes along with the kids and grandkids. I remember when we were in high school and at White Pass skiing. Those were the days of wooden skis and horrible binders. Linda's feet were always cold. Now we are planting our organic garden and we are going to buy some non gmo apple trees to plant. Jim
Autoimmune-Auto inflammatory Syndrome induced by Adjuvants is a recently-discovered condition related to adverse reactions from ingredients called adjuvants used in some vaccinations. The syndrome was named “Autoimmune/Auto inflammatory Syndrome induced by Adjuvants” in 2011 and is abbreviated with the acronym – ASIA.
The symptoms of ASIA include generalized persistent fatigue, dry mouth, neurological difficulties, sleeping disorders, muscle wasting, cognitive issues, arthralgias, myalgias and even early death. The condition of Gulf War Syndrome has numerous symptoms in common with ASIA.
Aluminum adjuvant in vaccinations seems to do the most damage
One of the adjuvants most often used in vaccinations is aluminum. However, aluminum is a known neurotoxin that can cause an array of problematic metabolic reactions. Exposure to even small amounts of aluminum is can lead to numerous neurological disorders and cognitive symptoms. Children receive many times the FDA- allowed amount of aluminum from vaccines administered during their first six months of life.
The autoimmune condition of ASIA was first identified by Israeli doctor Dr. Yehuda Schoenfeld of the Zabludowicz Center for Autoimmune Diseases. However, it has since become so widespread that the 9th International Congress on Autoimmunity created a world registry to keep track of those afflicted by it.
Majority of ASIA cases traced to hepatitis B vaccine
Dr. Schoenfeld says that ASIA symptoms can often take years to manifest. Doctors unaware of the condition often bounce patients around to different specialists in the search for the cause.
The hepatitis B vaccination has been identified as one of the leading causes of ASIA from adjuvants. This vaccine is often administered to infants right out of the womb. Over 70 percent of known ASIA cases have manifested following hepatitis B vaccinations. And, an estimated 73 percent of all ASIA cases have been associated with the aluminum adjuvants in vaccines.
Glutathione: Why You Need To Consume The Mother Of All Antioxidants
You’ve probably heard of the term “antioxidants” because it’s marketed heavily by corporations. Many food products boast of being “high in antioxidants,” but do you truly know what that means?

Antioxidants prevent or stop cell damage caused by oxidants. Oxygen is a highly reactive atom that is capable of becoming part of potentially damaging molecules, commonly referred to as “free radicals.” These molecules can attack healthy cells in the body and can lead to cancer, heart disease, and many more health issues. The good news is that antioxidants can fight off free radicals, even before any damage occurs!
One of the most powerful antioxidants, glutathione plays an integral role in maintaining our health and well-being and overall toxicity level and can prevent cancer, aging, neurological issues, heart disease, and more.
What Is Glutathione?
Glutathione is a tripeptide comprised of three building blocks of proteins or amino acids: glutamine, cysteine, and glycine. Glutathione (GSH) is naturally produced by the body at all times. In its reduced form, GSH moves through cells, collecting toxins like mercury as well as free radicals and heavy metals, and then swiftly removes them from the body.
In a world where we are constantly exposed to toxins, whether it’s through our water, air, environment, food, healthcare, or anything else, it’s crucial to take advantage of the antioxidants available to us like glutathione.
Although the body naturally produces glutathione, it’s important to get outside sources as well, especially depending on the level of toxins you’re exposed to regularly. GSH can be found in certain vegetables, fruits, and spices, or it can be taken orally, intravenously, or nebulized.
The following foods are all natural sources of GSH:
Thank you for your question. I am working on a PM to you.
Thanks. Diet, exercise, weight and stress management helps keep my numbers in hand. When I put the Omron blood pressure cuff on I get all three numbers with a total of 200-215 and sometimes under 200 combined. I take no pharmaceuticals except for Ibuprofen on occasion or antibiotics and pain killers when necessary. I have been using joint supplements since the early nineties.
I just need to keep from incurring sports injuries so I have finally taken my physicians advice to cut back on my competitiveness a bit as I'm not 20 anymore (his words).
I played hard for a long time. When it was time for me to come around for my my responsibility I did. The timing was good and I was ready for the challenge.
California Debbi sent this video about teeth. She has been a vegan for a very long time and has many health issues and horrible dental problems. She has already spent $30,000 on dental work and has holes everywhere and four bridges and still in pain. She is converting from vegan to using some of the products on the video.
The video is a bit much on advertising his book. Some of his views sound good and some........?
I am not sure I would equate being vegan with bad teeth. The question is not what she was not eating but what she was eating and how she was caring for her teeth. I know plenty of vegans with healthy teeth. Did not watch video... yet.
As an example, a lot of Vegan's eat a crapload of soy. Soy is deadly to all humans, vegan or not.
Every item you listed assists in lowering inflammation, they all helped. https://www.drperlmutter.com/important-blood-test/ Also google "low histamine" foods and increase consumption of those, eat almost no sugars. Dr Perlmutter's book "The Grain Brain" would be a wonderful read for you to read.
Great job lowering the A1C, keep it up!!
super excellent posts as always
You asked a question above - that I just happened to be thinking about recently;
why some kids and not others?
It boils down to this; the immune system is sensitive to stress. Stress confuses/depresses the immune system - and therefore it becomes less effective. To use myself as an example; Recall, I was growing-up with an older sister who was a violent psychopath. So I was under heavy stress. I had immediate AND long term adverse effects when I got the Polio vacs at 6 yrs old. So did some other kids, some seemed to not have any immediate reactions. I guar-am-damn-tee that was simply a matter of the total subjective stress factors the kids were under at the time.
Now remember , "stress" comes in all forms, and its cumulative. Food, chemical, emotional, physical, social environment, etc. If one or all of those issues has weakened the kids immune system, at the time of the vaccination, the autism or whatever begins immediately. Or, the viruses in the vac lie dormant until there is sufficient stress for them to come out and play. And that is the time bomb we are all juggling with (Ahem ! - Ruff), which is why , for the most part, we all do our best to avoid as many sources of stress (junk foods) as possible.
