WeedKiller in our Breakfast Cereals?

I knew that Tomato plants are poisoned at the end of their  growing life so as to ripen the tomatoes quickly for the markets. I was never sure what with and always tried to either grow my own or just not eat them. Now I realize there are a lot more crops getting the same treatment.

Environmental Working Group (EWG) just released its second round of 2018 test results measuring glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weed killer, in popular oat-based cereals and foods.

The nonprofit organization released the new results after two companies, Quaker and General Mills, told the public it has no reason to worry about traces of glyphosate in its products.

Not True

Why is there glyphosate in our food? According to the U.S. Geological Survey, 250 million pounds of glyphosate are sprayed on American crops each year. Glyphosate is primarily used on Roundup Ready corn and soybeans that are genetically modified to withstand the herbicide.

Glyphosate is a systemic herbicide, meaning it’s taken up inside of the plant, including the parts livestock and humans wind up eating.

Glyphosate is sprayed on other non-GMO crops, like wheat, oats, barley and beans, right before harvest. Farmers sometimes call this “burning down” the crops and do this to kill the food plants and dry them out so that they can be harvested sooner.

Interesting

28 products tested, those with the highest levels of glyphosate include: (1)

  • Quaker Oatmeal Squares, Honey Nut (2,837 ppb)
  • Quaker Oatmeal Squares, Brown Sugar (2,746 ppb)
  • Quaker Overnight Oats, Unsweetened with Chia Seeds (1,799 ppb)
  • Cheerios, Oat Crunch Cinnamon (1,171 ppb)
  • Quaker Overnight Oats, Raisin Walnut & Honey Heaven (1,029 ppb)
  • Quaker Breakfast Squares Soft Baked Bars, Peanut Butter (1,014 ppb)
  • Quaker Breakfast Flats Crispy Snack Bars, Cranberry Almond (894 ppb)
  • Apple Cinnamon Cheerios (868 ppb)
  • Honey Nut Cheerios (833 ppb)
  • Chocolate Cheerios (826)

Now I love my porridge but I think I need to have second thoughts about where  I buy this porridge and what label I buy.

I mean what can you do  as it seems there is generally lots of not so good stuff  being being sprayed on our food, especially our kids food. For me what the heck,  I have come this far eating porridge its not so bad for me but the kids have a lifetime to be concerned. Bio Dynamic food is an option and any other organic grown produce for me in the future. Maybe some of these companies need to overhaul the harvesting techniques to prevent this happening. I will cost us more for the product though but for health of the children I think it would be a good thing.

This information came from the website of Dr Axe if you wish to read more on the subject

Interesting for Those Who Eat Copious Amounts Of Kale and Spinach💦

This information comes from the Web site of Dr Axe which incidentally is a brilliant website if you need information on many other health subjects. I believe his information to be correct and well researched.

It seems when you can and if you can afford it organic is the way to go. Rather frightening figures on the amount of fungicide and pesticide on the two vegetables that have been recommended to all of us for our good health. There are some that are not quite so contaminated with sprays which is also very interesting.

After reading this article I thought I would share and you may find it interesting enough to go to the site and get some more information on the subject.

This is of course when the Kangen water machine comes in handy as it has an acidic level of water that will wash most of the contamination away. Plus of course it has many other benefits if you like to go to http://lesleyvoth.kangendemo.com you will be able to find out all the benefits of this fantastic water machine. I believe all kitchens should have one. I know that some vegetables are sprayed from very early stages so are internal and cannot be washed away but at least the water machine will get rid of some of it especially tomatoes and some fruits.

Of course if it is’ GMOed ‘ then nothing washes that contamination away so Organic is the way to go

Down Those Two Sizes – Yaaay

 

Well,  took a month and a half but I did it. As you know I don’t get on scales or measure myself. I tend to recognize if I have put weight on or off by how I fit into my clothes and of course when a friend says “Wow you have lost weight”. I am closer to a 10 (8 US) than a 12 but fit comfortably in a 12 Australian size (10 US).  My son on the other hand does weigh himself regularly and he has lost 8kg (17.637 lbs) in just under one month. That is fantastic for him as he did cheat a little but stuck mostly to the routine. Kudos to Jamin.

I did find my cleansing days very challenging but on the other hand worth it as I slept well and woke up the next day with a clear head (no booze on that day of course) and felt energized and of course a lot lighter. As much as I don’t like it, as I love my evening meal,  I did look forward to the cleansing day  in some ways because of the result and it does get easier the more you do it.

Now I will move into the maintenance program as I feel I have lost the weight I wanted to, now will take care not to put it back on.

If you are wanting to get rid of excess weight, I highly recommend  Isagenix as the product to try. It does require commitment but well worth it as it really does concentrate on the nutrition rather than just losing weight at the detriment of your health. Look,  you can lose it fast or not but you will lose it if you keep with the program. Anyway if interested email me no matter what country – lesley@davidvoth.com or  just go to my website at Isagenix

There is also a great Business Opportunity that can supplement what you are earning,  eventually like some,  become a full-time income, sufficient to keep you in the style you have always dreamed of while helping others. ❤️

Remember “If you don’t do different nothing will change”

Start To Improve Your Mitochondrial Health in 4 minutes

I have taken this straight from Dr Mercola’s site  so there is no confusion as to what this is all about. It is easy and obviously beneficial.

 

To cut it short

  • The Nitric Oxide Dump workout stimulates your body’s release of nitric oxide (NO), improving your mitochondrial health, slowing down age-related muscle decline and boosting heart health
  • It involves just four movements — squats, alternating arm raises, non-jumping jacks and shoulder presses — which are done in repetitions of 10, with four sets each
  • The workout takes just three or four minutes and should be repeated three times a day, with a minimum of two hours between sessions

Do you have three or four minutes, one to three times a day, to devote to your health? By using that time to engage in one of the best high-intensity exercises out there — the Nitric Oxide Dump — you can improve your mitochondrial health, slowing down age-related muscle decline. The fact is, if you live in the U.S. and work full time, you sit an average of 13 hours a day, then sleep for an average of eight.1 This means you’re sedentary 21 hours of the day!

Your body wasn’t designed for that. It functions best when you’re ctive more so than not, and by breaking up your day with bursts of activity, you can reap great rewards. Take nitric oxide (NO), a soluble gas stored in the lining of your blood vessels, called the endothelium. NO is produced inside your endothelial cells from the amino acid L-arginine, where it acts as an important signaling molecule throughout your body.

Along with promoting healthy endothelial function and heart health, NO supports healthy blood flow by helping your veins and arteries dilate. This, in turn, allows vital oxygen and nutrients to flow freely throughout your body. NO also plays a protective role in your mitochondrial health, the energy storehouse of your cells, responsible for the utilization of energy for all metabolic functions.

Even your skeletal muscle, which is made up of only about 1 percent to 2 percent mitochondria, depend on these energy powerhouses to fuel your daily movements. When you exercise and your muscles ache, it’s because you’ve run out of oxygen, which your body compensates for by releasing NO (to dilate your blood vessels making it easier for oxygen to be delivered).

This process fuels muscle development, but here’s the secret that’s not widely known: When you exercise, it takes only about 90 seconds for your blood vessels to run out of stored nitric oxide and begin the process of making more. “So working each major muscle group out for 90 seconds,” says Dr. Zach Bush, “gives you the most efficient workout to tone and build muscles.”2 Bush developed the Nitric Oxide Dump workout, which is specially designed to stimulate the release of NO for muscle growth and much more.

This video below is explained a little more in depth by Dr Mercola than the top video so chose to give you both.

Why Three to Four Minutes, Three Times a Day Is Ideal

It may sound too good to be true, but less really is more when you know how to harness your body’s NO-generating powers. Short bursts of high-intensity activity are best, and in the case of NO it’s important to wait at least two hours between sessions because that’s how long it takes for nitric oxide to synthesize in your body for subsequent release.

“Your body has the ability to regenerate nitric oxide every couple of hours, giving you the opportunity to release it multiple times a day,” Bush says. “What that means is the most effective way to increase your muscle function is to work out very briefly every few hours.”3 What’s more, the Nitric Oxide Dump workout incorporates the 16 largest muscle groups in your body, making it a full-body workout.

And unlike some of the other ways to stimulate the release of NO, like going out in the sun, this workout isn’t dependent on the weather or time of day. You can do it virtually anywhere, and it’s appropriate for all fitness levels. Remember, the Nitric Oxide Dump is a form of high-intensity interval training (HIIT), which research has shown to offer greater fitness and health gains in a fraction of the time compared to typical moderate or low-intensity gym workouts. For example:

  • HIIT reduces arterial stiffness and resting heart rate in people with Type 2 diabetes and may reduce the burden of cardiovascular complications in people with this condition4
  • HIIT significantly improves metabolic health in older adults by improving insulin sensitivity and reducing age-related risk factors for cardiometabolic disease5
  • A meta-analysis of 39 studies found “HIIT is a time-efficient strategy to decrease fat-mass deposits, including those of abdominal and visceral fat mass”6
  • In a study of overweight and obese adults, HIIT and moderate-intensity continuous training led to similar improvements in body composition over 10 weeks, but HIIT required about 40 percent less training time to receive those benefits7

The Nitric Oxide Dump workout is particularly beneficial because, by stimulating the release of NO, it also improves your immune function and stimulates the thinning of your blood and decreases its viscosity, which in turn decreases platelet aggregation. The latter may discourage the development of blood clots that may cause a heart attack or stroke. As you age, your NO production decreases, so doing this quick, simple workout is one way to fight back against the hands of time.

The Four-Minute Nitric Oxide Dump Workout

You can see Bush’s version at the top of the article and mine lower down. While the primary movements are the same, make sure you’re breathing through your nose and not your mouth, as your nose regulates more than 30 physical processes, including the release of NO.

There are only four movements to learn for this workout. Start with four sets of 10 repetitions, moving to 20 repetitions as your fitness level increases. You can also add in weights (I use 8-pound weights) as you progress, but most people will want to start without weights initially.

You can do this workout three times a day, with a minimum of two hours between each workout. However, if you are in recovery mode and have not slept well or had a hard workout it is fine to skip it. Form is everything, so be sure you carry out each movement correctly, even if you need to go at a slower pace at first.

Squats (10)

  • Begin by standing with your feet hip-width apart, feet parallel, toes pointing forward and the weight of your body distributed evenly between your heels and the ball of your foot.
  • Perform 10 squats in rapid sequence, keeping your quadriceps engaged. Your butt should move back as though you’re going to sit in a chair while your arms move forward for balance. You can do a shallower squat if you have knee or back pain.

Alternating Arm Raises (10)

  • Alternate swinging your arms at a 90-degree angle
  • Keep your form tight and your muscles controlled, avoiding swinging your arms too high or too low

This will work a number of muscles in your deltoids, which are the rounded, triangular-shaped muscles on the uppermost part of your arm and the top of your shoulder.

Non-Jumping Jacks (10)

  • Begin standing straight with your arms down, fists touching in front of your pelvis.
  • Use a broad rotation, circle your arms upward on each side to touch your fists over your head.
  • Circle back down to hit your fists at the bottom and repeat 10 times.

If you have shoulder problems with your rotator cuffs, try this variation instead:

  • Start with your hands at a prayer position in front of your chest.
  • Keep your hands pressed together lightly as you extend them above your head.
  • Circle your arms out to the sides to release before bringing them back to the prayer position. Repeat 10 times.

Shoulder Presses (10)

  • Bring fists above your shoulders on either side of your head, elbows bent.
  • Extend your arms straight above your head.
  • Return to position with fists just over your shoulders and repeat 10 times.

When you’re done, you should feel your fingertips tingling, and this is a great sign because it means nitric oxide is freely flowing through your body. For quick reference, the below infographic gives you all the details on how to perform the Nitric Oxide Dump workout.

I’d like to share something with you…..💦

 

This is actually my husband talking (or writing) who, incidentally has lost 60lbs in weight by consciously drinking this water and keeping up his hydration and of course health. He has done this in 6 months. Pretty amazing I would say. He explains in a simple way how this water develops and changes your health.

Every day, several times a day, when I turn on this marvelous machine from Japan I hear a little voice say “Kangen Water 9.5,” and my body instantly feels supported.

As the machine begins its filtration cycle, it draws up ordinary tap water and transforms it into something absolutely amazing! Then, as if by magic, it promptly delivers filtered, fresh, cool and delicious, ionized alkaline drinking water.

Peering into the glass, the first thing I notice is the milky cloud. This is how I know my machine is working optimally. The cloud is formed from super-charged, tiny bubbles of hydrogen gas (H2), which is one of the key components to this fantasticwater.

This is a huge part of what gives Kangen Water® its amazing health benefits so, go on and Drink the Cloud, quickly before it dissipates!

Ahh.. that’s the stuff!

Benefits of Bubbles

The tiny H2 (molecular hydrogen) bubbles you see in a glass of Kangen Water are generated during the process of electrolysis in the Enagic® water ionizing machine. The potential of Hydrogen or pH is the measure of hydrogen-ion concentration present, which affects alkalinity.

Hydrogen-rich Kangen Water is known for its immeasurable health benefits because of its incredible alkalinity, so the more bubbles that get into your system, the more benefits!

Tiny Bubbles in Kangen Water

But how do the bubbles work?

Hydrogen gas is a free radical scavenger – in other words, it’s a powerful antioxidant! The H2 bubbles may be extremely tiny, but they pack a punch in that they are capable of neutralizing even the most damaging, reactive, free-radicals in your body. In fact, the smaller the better!

Research has found that H2 “can be used as an effective antioxidant therapy; owing to its ability to rapidly diffuse across membranes”

If you’re looking for a safe, effective antioxidant to keep your body healthy on a cellular level, visit my websiteand then give me a call! I would love to enlighten you and share my experience with you.

There is so much more to this then just the best water on the planet… Ask me about True Health and start your attainable journey to a achieving not only a Healthy Body, but also a Healthy Mind and the Freedom that True Prosperity can afford you! You can fully enjoy the finer things in life, all you have to do is ask.

YES! You can have it all and eat your cake too ;-) Until we meet up again…

Cheers to your Health!
