Flaxseed Oil

Mar 13, 2008 - 4 comments

People have been eating flaxseed for thousands of years it was cultivated by the Babylonians as early as 3000 BC.  Hippocrates, the great Greek physician of the ancient world, used flaxseed for the relief of intestinal discomfort.  He might have told his patients to "take 2 teaspoond and call me in the morning"  Stephan Cunnane, PhD, a leading nutrition and brain-metabolism specialist at the Research Center on Aging in Sherbrooke, Canada, said "Flazseed will be the nutraceutical food of the 21st century because of it's multi-health benefits.

What's so Great about Flxseed?
Flaxseed has the highest concentration of essential fatty acid of any source on the planet.  A deficiency of Omega-3 has been positively correlated with more than 60 illnesses, including arthritis, atherosclerosis, cancer, diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), immune disorders, menopausal discomfort and stroke.  So adding Omega-3 to your daily diet may go a long way in helping to prevent, improve or reverse those unhealthy conditions.
Health, life and longevity critically rely on two essential nutrients.  The imbalance of these two vital neutrients is credited as possibly the leading cause of death and disability in America today.  Both Omega-3 and Omega-6 found abundantly in flaxseed, they have been deemed the essential nutrients by World Health Organization, headquarters in Geneva Switzerland.  As essential nutrients, we must get these essential fatty acids directly from foods we eat or through nutritional supplementation.  The body cannot manufacture them from other nutrients.  Throughout human history, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids have been ingested in near perfect proportion.  For millions of years, the equal ingestion of these two have created a delicate check and balance system within the body that is in control of, literally thousands of metabolic functions. That means everything including immune function, cellular communication, insulin sensitivity, inflamatory response to hormone and steriod production.  It is impossible for optimal health to be attained with a tissue imbalance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.  Our diets are almost void devoid of it due to food mufacturers and processing.

Mar 13, 2008 - 0 comments

Bee pollen Nature's perfect food:
Referred to as the most complete food in nature, bee pollen has ALL of the necessary nutrients needed for human survival-- at least 18 of the amino acids, more than a dozen vitamins, especially rich in B-complex, A,C,D,E almost all known minerals....trace elements......11 enzymes or co-enzymes, and 14 beneficial fatty acids.  
It is 35% proteins, 55% carbohydrates,2% fatty acids,3% vitamens and minerals.  That leaves 5% unaccounted for.  That 5%which science has not been able to isolate and identify, may be what'd alluded to in Whispers____"the magic of the bee" That makes the bee pollen so powerful!

According to Steve Schecter, ND HHP, director of Naturl Healing Institute in Encinitas, Ca, more than 40 research studies document the therapeutic efficacy and safety of bee pollen.  Clinical tests show orally ingested particles are rapidly ingested and easily absorbed, they pass from the stomach directly into the blood.  Dr Schechter's overview is that "BEE POLLEN rejuvinates your body, stimulates organs and glands, enhances vitality and brings about a longer life span.
Bee Pollen
1.offers relief of allergies(helps the body build natual defenses) (make sure you are not allergic to bee's)

2.It is used by many athletes to help increase their strength endurance and speed, it helps the body recover from exercise, bringing the heart rate and breathing back to normal more quickly.

3. It allieviates mental fatigue and improves alertness and concentrtion helping you remain focused for longer periods of time.  It's reported to improve the mental and physical reactions of athletes

4.It promotes fertility and sexual vitality.  Noel Johnson a San Diego based marathon runner who is in his 90's credits bee pollen as one reason for him writing his autobiography "A Dud at 70, A Stud at 80!"

5.The skin becomes younger looking, less vulnerable to wrinkles, smoother and healthier, with the use of honeybee pollen.

6. Studies show that food consumption is decreased by 15% TO 20%  When taken daily with a glass of water 15 to 30 minutes before meals.  It is said to correct an impalance in the body's metabolism, that may contribute to weight gain. It is thought that the Lecithin in pollen speeds up the burning of calories.  It also assists the digestive process, and theassimilation of nutrients.

7. It protects against radiation and it's affects and strengthens the immune system, with proteins, beneficial fats, vitamins B,C,D,E, beta carotene, calcium, magnesium, selenium,, neucleic acids,lecithin, and cysteine.  All this has been scientifically proven to strengthen immunity, counteract the effects of radiation, and chemical toxins and generate optimal health and vitality.

Forms and dosages:
gel caps, tablets, and granules
Granules is the number one choice 1 tsp with water before meals  In the beginning a dosage of 1/4 to 1/2 tsp once per day is recommended then increase dosages gradually.

3 weeks clean and sober

Mar 11, 2008 - 0 comments

Hi my angels,
I am 3 weeks tomorrow, I was sitting here and it hit me 21 days is 3 weeks WoW WoW Wow  I thought 3 weeks ago I was going to die, I wanted to die.  I feel WONDERFUL. now.  I still have lots of ghost busting to do to cope with my hubby and babygirl's death and get down and depressed.  I still somewhat blame my self for the horrible day I was stopped and got a DUI and my hubby came to get the car they insisted.  He did NOT need to be driving he was a worse addict than me and had a defibrillator.  I told them this and he had a wreck on the way home totalling the car 3 weeks later he was dead and my babygirl could not handle her Dad's death a month and a half later she was dead, yes I know the accident was because the cop insisted he come get the car dispite my protests, but still I take the blame if I had not taken the xanax it would not have happened and he might have lived longer and my babygirl also..  I did pass the cemetary today they are burried beside each other and I waved and didnt start crying for a change.  BUT I didn't stop, that's when it really gets to me.  I still don't have a marker on the graves yet hopefully I can soon.  The VA hasnt sent his it's been 2 and a half years.  BUT, not going to let depression bring me down.  I have a wonderful guy who loves and supports me, and I think they would look down and say "GO live your life and be happy, we are very proud of you". I think she would say, Mom I am an angel now don't cry for me, just look up and call I am here, and so proud of you.  What hurts is I can no longer touch her hand or her face.  BUT i do have a song she did for a friend who died in Iraq and at the end she says rest in peace I love you shane.  so I can hear her voice it gives me some comfort.  I am working through my grief, SOBER for a change.  I don't want to just sleep the blissful sleep of the pilled up dead, to forget or to deal with the grief.  Thanks Angels for being here for me through this last 3 weeks I love all of you even though I have only been posting for 3 weeks.  I am sorry for rambling but lots don't know my story.  Thanks all for you love and support.
