The best seeds are flax seeds and pumpkin seeds. Flax seeds are so small they are best ground and sprinkled on cereal. Alternatively, use flax seed o ... read more
The Future of Nutrition in America 9 d
Scientists generated an algorithm for predicting individualized response to food based on the person’s lifestyle, medical background, and the composition and function of his or her microbiome.
Some number of years ago (maybe two decades) I imagined highly individualized dietary choices offered to people based on a readout of the individual’s biochemistry in that moment. It appears that we are not too far away from seeing that actualized now!
The need for personalized dietary recommendations has been affirmed in the largest study of its kind.

The History of Nutrition in America 11 d
"The tree of nutritional knowledge."
May 19, 2017 -
Inspiration that included the idea of ”nutritional paradigms” motivated my search that yielded 24,600 initial results for ”nutritional paradigms”. This gave me The ”Oxford History” wherein I learned of Wilbur Atwater who was known as the ”father of American nutrition”. Atwater built the first nutritional paradigm on a foundation of calories. However the ”Basic tenets of early nutrition was challenged” by the discovery of vitamins in 1910s. Now ”calories alone were not enough to promote health and sustain life.”
The second nutritional paradigm in America was erec ... read more
"The Chemistry of Man" & Dr. Weston A. Price 12 d
Nutritional balancing and nutritional therapy.
Over the course of a number of years I have wondered how the nutrition recommendations that Dr. Bernard Jensen had advocated compare to what Dr. Weston A. Price had observed in actual dietary practices among the isolated cultures he had visited.
I have ”The Chemistry of Man” by Bernard Jensen and have interest in knowing more about the ”nutritional balancing” that Dr. Jensen apparently studied with Dr. Weston Price.
I sent a message to bernardjensen.com and look forward to hearing from them!

Calendula Tea Can Help Strengthen The Stomach 3 mon
A couple of the many benefits of Calendula.
Unpacked a bottle of Calendula Essence (from one of my medicine bags) and forgot what I had used it for (17+ years ago) and so I did a search and glad I did cause I learned:
”Regularly drinking Calendula Tea, can help strengthen the stomach and intestines, preventing indigestion (it can also relieve indigestion)”
I’m inspired to get a big bag of Calendula flowers from the herb department at the coop and add this tea to my daily tea mix!
Very interesting that I should happen upon this tonight after having a little conversation earlier with a ”fellow gardener” who had said food is ... read more
How to "Stop Putting Toxins in Your Body" 3 mon
Identifying the territory where most all food products that contain toxins can be found!
Author Kevin Trudeau, (Natural Cures “They” Don’t Want You to Know About) offers specific recommendations for prevention of disease including: ”You must stop putting toxins in the body” (which in my ”book” makes perfect sense)!
According to the New (Mind Body) Medicine (known as German New Medicine) all disease is a biological survival program however that does not include sickness from poisons. Toxins can be considered as poisons.
The recommendation to ”stop putting toxins in the body” is followed by a total of forty-one specific items. I find the first item of special interest:

Direct correlations between the ancient wisdom of the "Book of Changes" (with its 64 Hexagrams) and the Genetic Code and therefore with all of life!
Acupuncture, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Reflexology, Sun Tzu’s Art of War, Nutrition, Chinese Herbalism, Feng Shui, Ba Zi Chinese Horoscope and the DNA Genetic Code are all disciplines and sciences that have connected to and derived from the I Ching and the 64 Hexagrams.
The I Ching and the Genetic Code are strongly correlated in Gene Keys by Richard Rudd. I have more research cut out for me here to identify the correlations with these other subjects!

The Essence of Organic Agriculture 5 mon
Organic agriculture must be based on the fertility of a healthy soil ecosystem. Don't let organic be destroyed with hydroponics (coming under the organic label and thereby watering down the soil basis for true organic agriculture!) or with interventions under color of law.

Hydroponic “Organic” is Illegal
Use of the word “organic” on products that do not comply with the Organic Foods Production Act (OFPA) and the National Organic Program Final Rule (NOP) is illegal. The NOSB (National Organic Standards Board) recommended against “hydroponic” products being labeled a “organic” on numerous occasions. Neither OFPA nor the NOP have been amended to allow for the products of soilless production systems being labeled as organic. Federal organic hydroponic standards have not been issued, following notice and comment rulemaking.

Organic Laws of the United States of America & Food Freedom! 7 mon
Toward building bridges from the philosophy of freedom to food freedom movements.
The original impetus I had for becoming a student of Dr. Ed Rivera arose within me very shortly after a local small farm had closed it’s ”gates” after succumbing to legal actions against it by the State of California. I intuitively knew there was help that could possibly be extended to the farmer however I did not have the clarity of understanding that I needed back then as to what the ”help” consisted of and therefor I also knew that I needed to obtain that clarity before I could offer any real help.
Since then I have offered ”comments” at a number of blogs devoted to ’Food Freedom’. H ... read more

Dismantling vegan dogma.
A friend asked for my ”good recipe” for pesto. It would be for a product that’s exclusively available in a business that I am not connected with in any way. I had to look at the business before I could answer the request. I found a number of statements at the website that I have blogged about here and elsewhere. I responded to my friend’s request as follows:
IMO - this statement deserves a rewrite: ”... the effects of meat and dairy production on our planet: It’s the single largest contributor to green house gasses and is enormously wasteful of our precious water resources.”

A Therapeutic Very High-Fat Ketogenic Diet 12 mon
Cancer cells starve on a ketogenic diet, but normal cells thrive!
My thanks to Jason who is visiting at Bloom House in San Diego as he inspired me a few days ago to research this diet.
”... cancer cells thrive on sugar. Cancer cells use an anaerobic respiration of sugar to form acids. That is the metabolism of cancer cells. The reason the cancer patient starves while the cancer cells grow is because they are much better at taking up the sugar than are normal cells. If we understand this selective metabolism of cancer well enough to diagnose its growth, then the next step is to withhold sugar and see what happens.
The trouble is we need a backup fue ... read more

”...The life of hell is heavy, dark, murky; symbolically it is the life of the digestive tract, the stomach and the sexual organs. The life of heaven is subtle, pure, filled with light; symbolically, it is the life of the lungs, the heart and the brain. The lower part (hell) and the upper part (heaven) within us are separated by the diaphragm. But the structure of our body tells us they must work together. Only, we should always ensure that the upper part controls the lower part. Our consciousness must set up home here, in the upper part, and the lower part will provide the materials, the ... read more
The Two Sides Of The Mouth 12 mon
What people say about the food they eat and what people actually eat.
Previous Page, Page 20
I hear people say: ”I watch what I eat” giving others the impression that they are careful to only eat really nourishing food and then later admit: ”I love eating cookies”!
I can understand how vegans can have these somewhat secret food cravings. Vegans typically are not getting real healthy (from a grass-fed animal) fats in their diet (to balance what is often a high carb intake) and consequently the imbalance shows up with sugar cravings from hypoglycemia. (Strict vegetarians can experience this as well.)
”Watching” what one eats doesn’t really meaning anything to me if one eats wh ... read more
