Yogurt and Sugar

 

This is a subject that I think most people are aware of but “sweet” wins. 

The stomach health loves pure unadulterated yogurt. Collect all of those natural bugs that our body needs to digest and absorb our food and keep our digestive  mechanism running efficiently.

Look I am a label reader, have been for years. I always read the ‘ ingredients ‘  on the outside of the packaging (no ingredient label I don’t buy). I don’t look at the calorie or food break down as there will always be a ‘sugar’ content number as there is natural sugars in most foods. Always read the content of the ‘Ingredients’. With almost 95% of the yogurt especially the flavored ones or ones with a fruit mix (which you can be sure will have sugar added) they will have sugar, corn syrup, fructose or some other sweetener in it. Try to stay clear of this. The sugars actually are harmful to the natural bacteria’s that are in yogurt so you won’t be getting the full benefit of eating yogurt.

The reason they put sweetness in the yogurt is it makes it more palatable especially to children and they sell more of the product as  “Healthy”. In most cases you may as well have desert.

What I do with natural unsweetened yogurt is I might add passionfruit from our vines or at this time of the year fresh Mango’s, strawberries. Basically I add any fruit that is in season “Fresh” .

If you are used to eating flavored yogurt, try weaning yourself on to the natural unsweetened ones. Its like breaking the habit of having sugar in your tea or coffee. Once you break the habit you find your tea or coffee undrinkable containing your teaspoon or more of sugar.

If you have a weight problem well then that is a good reason to look on the shelves for the natural product. I actually make my own yogurt as I have a yogurt maker. This way it is much more economical and I believe tastier.

If you are buying yogurt this is what you look for

Troubling Water – Life or Death💦

 

Water is the driving force of all nature – Leonardi Da Vinci💦

There was an article in my favorite health magazine called ‘Nature and Health’.

The article started off with a question “Is your water an elixir or a dangerous drink” and I believe that to be an important question.

I sadly have to say there is a number of friends and acquaintances around me that have the dreaded disease cancer. My first question as anyone who knows me is are you drinking enough water. 9 times out of 10 they will say “probably not” or yes I drink at least 4 or 5 glasses a day. Sorry not enough. If your body is not flushing your toxins from your body then your body holds on to them. That is not good when you have such a destructive disease running around your body.

Tap water

Aluminum, sulfate, ammonia, chlorine, hydrofluorosilicic acid, polyacrylamide, rust, slime, algae, asbestos, detergents, petrol, pesticides, pharmaceutical medications, faecal matter, herbicides, arsenic, cadmium, chromium, chloroform, copper, mercury, nitrates, cryptosporidium, Guardia, viruses, bacteria, blue-green algae.

Yep most and more  chemicals will be found in your  tap water. No Kidding. So many chemicals I can’t even pronounce their name.

In fact Western Australia Water Corporation recommends that babies under three months do not consume their water due to high nitrate content.

The ABC confirmed that PFAs (polufluoroalkyl chemicals) have not been banned in Australia. This is used to create non stick cookware and fire fighting foam. This chemical has been found in over 70 sites in Australia and as far as they know. Over 6 million Americans are drinking water that contains PFAs above the EPA after level.

This chemical is linked to immune system suppression, cancer, brain damage, nervous system damage, fertility problems and hormone disruption.

Look I could go on and on but you need to read this article for yourself it is very enlightening and I think you really need to think twice about what you are drinking.

Bottled Water

Every minute a million bottles of water are bought world-wide.

Not only is that an environmental nightmare most bottled water does not match the labels and 93% of samples analyzed showed micro plastic contamination researched by Natural resources defense council 

Some of the contaminates in bottled water is phthalates, mould, microbes, benzene, trihalomethane and arsenic .

Brita water filters are ok especially if you are unable to carry your own water on flights. Its better than nothing but does not remove the chemicals completely.

This is where I am putting a word in about the Kangen Water it really is the best you can buy. 40-year-old company and a product that is unsurpassable.

It is medically registered water restructuring system and as they say Gold Standard pure water. Kangen filters remove all the impurities and then alkalize the water plus give it negative charge so it can pass through our positively – charged cellular aquaporin and make the water molecules minuscule for  ultimate absorption. Great for hydration and optimizing nutrient assimilation and eliminating toxins.

Cancers cannot survive in an alkaline environment and Kangen water is considered an anti cancer aid.

Wether or not you consider this machine it is up to you but I have made you aware of what you are drinking in your tap and bottled water and urge you for your health and the health of your family and the environment to consider this machine. I own two, one in the States and one in Australia and they are worth every cent.

Did You Know- 10/01/2018

  1. According to the World Health Organization:  Health benefits of Sunbathing Far outweigh risks. Sun-baking dramatically reduces the risk of several types of cancers, autoimmune diseases, bone diseases, type 1 diabetes, depression and in proper doses can even reduce the risk of melanoma, a meta analysis sun related disease. Study finds a growing number of scientists are concerned that public campaign to protect people from the sun are causing more harm than good. Lack of sun exposure has caused massively more disease than over exposure, ay the authors of a Meta-analysis weighing the pros and cons of soaking in the sun. Excessive sun exposure accounts for less than 0.1% of the total global disease burden according to the World Health Organization.

Biodynamic – The Real Deal

Have you ever wondered what Biodynamic farming is all about?
Well I had the privilege to actually go to one of their farms years ago. Found it absolutely fascinating. It is a real commitment to very healthy and pure food and farming.

So if you see the name on any products you can be assured that they are the best and purest food you can buy.
I found this article in the “Health and Nature” magazine and if you are interested in good nutritious food it is worth reading.
These type of farms are all over the world not just Australia

 

 

What does being a biodynamic farmer mean? It means that we provide the best possible value in our dairy products for our customers. It also means that we care for the environment in the best possible way. We do not pollute waterways, and we farm with the least water usage and waste possible. We care for our animals in the best possible way – for example, leaving calves with cows as long as they drink milk; not using anything artificial in animal husbandry, and running a bull with the herd to avoid artificial insemination; and by not using hormones, antibiotics, or chemical drenches. We use preventive methods, like herbal creams for udders to prevent mastitis,  herbal and mineral-based products in drinking water to prevent infections or parasites. We use biodynamic preparations made from herbs, manure and minerals on the soil, which provide nutrients that soil microorganisms need to be balanced, so that plants growing in that soil will be healthy and fertile. We try to keep a natural balance between native vegetation and crops to feed the cows. We run monthly study and discussion groups for interested farmers or home gardeners, and two-day workshops where people can learn to make the homeopathic preparations. For us, biodynamic farming is the only sustainable way of farming. Biodynamic farming means our kids can experience chemical-free farm life and grow up in a natural environment with friendly, happy animals.

How does biodynamic farming compare with conventional farming? It is similar to organic farming, in that both farming styles do not use chemicals, do not plant genetically modified crops, and follow strict rules as to how animals are treated, and what with. The difference is that in organic farming, one can take a fairly conventional approach, for example, if there is a weed problem they can use a spray or other method to get rid of the ‘problem’. In biodynamic farming, we instead regard this ‘problem’ as an indicator of where there is an imbalance. We then use natural methods, like weed teas made with herbal concentrates, to restore balance in the environment so that the problem becomes minor and eventually disappears. The same applies with treatments for the animals: we try to prevent problems by providing balanced feed rather than boosting milk production with a higher protein intake. In biodynamics, the long-term goal is healthy, long-living cows, which bear healthy calves without problems, and provide average, balanced production of unhomogenized milk. There is evidence from Europe that continuous consumption of homogenized milk is liked to heart disease; it may also lead to intolerances, as the body has difficulty dealing with proteins that can’t be digested and attempts to reject the unwanted fat molecules.

What is the one thing you want our readers to hear? Support local farmers to the best of your ability – this keeps our food chain alive, keeps Australian food being produced in Australia, and prevents productive land from being destroyed. Companies like ours need consumer support at the cash register. If supermarkets are made to understand that if products like ours are taken off the shelves and replaced with cheap imports or home-brand products that they will not be purchased, they will take notice! Vote with your dollar, and use the complaint pages on supermarket websites to have your say.

Here I Go Again – Bottled water – No No No💦

Here she goes again, I know, but this is a serious matter for our environment, our childrens hormonal health in the future, everyones health.

This is a 17 minute video which you really need to watch. I found this information on Dr Mercolas web site. His article confirming that most bottled water is contaminated with micro plastics and extremely harmful.

My friend Julie Bezett has just photographed and videoed in her area of the plastic overload in the rivers and the sea. The destruction of the environment wether it be in our sea, on the land or our intestines we need to think twice before we purchase water in these plastic containers. There are containers that are environmentally compatible, cost more but certainly a better option.

 

Alternative of course Kangen Water. Not because I am a distributor, its because I believe it to be the best machine on the market. Producing the best quality.

Great Health Reasons to Go BareFeet

 

How often do most of us go without shoes. Maybe on the couch watching tv.
Research has found that walking bare feet has great health benefits for the body that has not been recognized.

1. Helps reduce inflammation: Experts on earthing and grounding believe that this practice can help improve circulation which means that the nutrition for your body improves and expels toxins. It has been observed that it also helps to reduce swelling.

2. Reduces Stress hormones – ‘One double-blind study that investigated the effects of earthing (going barefoot) on 58 healthy adults used conductive adhesive patches placed on the sole of each participant’s foot to read their electrical signals. The subjects were exposed to 28 minutes in the unearthed condition followed by 28 minutes with the earthing wire connected. Controls were unearthed for 56 minutes.

After earthing, about half the subjects showed “an abrupt, almost instantaneous change in root mean square (rms) values of electroencephalograms (EEGs) from the left hemisphere of the brain.” These changes are believed to signify positive changes and lower stress reactions.’ (Dr Axe).

3. Helps with sleep: – After earthing, (Barefoot) levels of cortisol are more in line with the natural rhythms of the earth and sun: There is higher cortisol early in the morning when we naturally need more to feel alert and awake, then they had lower cortisol at night-time when we need to unwind in order to fall asleep for the night.

4. Helps increase energy: – Earthing or Grounding helps fight the craving for low energy foods, sugar that result in more calories.

5. Can help lower back pain: – Research has shown that grounding the body to the earth altered measures of immune system activity and pain. Among the ungrounded men, there was an expected, sharp increase in white blood cells (sign of an inflammatory response) and greater perception of pain after exercise. Grounded men had only a slight decrease in white blood cells, indicating less inflammation and experienced shorter recovery times.

How To Start Earthing

There is nothing that beats ‘Earthing or Grounding” than simply going barefoot. The beach, mowing the lawn, climbing hills, sitting on a chair with bare feet on the ground, gardening barefoot, BBQ barefoot.

There are products that are sold that will help with earthing but none better than plain old barefoot.

There is an electrically charged bed that has been created and features silver wires that are connected to the electrical charge of the earth once plugged into an “earthing” port. They say it is almost like sleeping outside in the grass.

Anyway if you want to read more about this go to the website of DrAxe and it will be explained in detail
