Due to the fact that I am working on my last three weeks of the semester while my husband is on a business trip,A I have decided to re-post articles worthy of being passed along. For those who are not familiar with the name,A Paul Bergner is the director of the North American Institute of Medical Herbalism in Boulder, Colorado whichA offers introductory, advanced, and clinical training in medical herbalism and clinical nutrition in the vitalist tradition. For those interested in more information,A please check out the websites above you will find a wealth of information. The process for making HFCS is to chemically strip the sugars off of the starch in corn, freeing them up.A The process of making of agave nectar is similar (this is not agave sap), but the sugars are chemically stripped off of inulin starch, inulin being a fructo-oligosaccharide, having fructose as the dominant sugar in the chain, so the agave nectar might be 80-90% free fructose instead of 55% like the HFCS in soft drinks. I like to think that my childhood was unique but honestly there are a great number of folk out there who grew up in a very similar manner to me. There is a point to all of this.A Herbalism is newer to me than the natural family living. I honestly am not sure of the answers but I thought I would throw the question out there as it is rumbling around in the back of my brain.A What have you been thinking about today?
Nutrition plays a vital role in a healthy nervous system but before you even think about what foods to eat, you should look at your eating patterns.A A Are you skipping meals while taking in large amounts of stimulants or sugars? B Vitamins are also important to a healthy nervous system but it is important to note that there is too much of a good thing.A Taking large doses of B vitamins (specifically B12)A can lead to anxiety attacks and panic disorders. As I examined the packets, I continued to like what I was reading and is there ever there a lot to read.A These might be the most informative seed packets I have ever run across!

A lot of herbalists talk of using herbal infusions to support your body during and illness or perhaps as an alternative to a nutritional supplement in the form of a nourishing infusion. They are quite useful; I have been making herbal preparations, for years now,A with good results. You don’t hear many of them mentioningA spaghetti sauce as an decoction although the acidic base of tomato sauce is wonderful for drawing minerals out of foods.
Keep in mind I am not talking about the watered-down, additive-laden prepared foodstuff you buy at the the megamarket.A A I am talking of preparations you make yourself. I don’t remember exactly when it occurred to me that soups and broths are really just giant pots of herbal goodness. I realized that I don’t know that I ever have put our spaghetti sauce recipe on the blog, so I though I would use it here as an example of the herb to food ratio that is health-producing. Beverages don’t have to be the boring preparations many people think of as medicinal infusions, either. There is an added benefit of incorporating these beverages into your daily diet.A I have experimented with many different ways to get little ones to eat their herbs. I also dona€™t like using them from a sustainability standpoint.A I dona€™t want my well-being to be dependent on any industry and it would be rather hypocritical of me to talk a good game about local sustainable food systems when half my nutrients are arriving on a boat from China. For the next couple of weeks, I am going to post about different ways eating and cooking with herbs can help to improve your health.

Even though digestion of the disaccharide to the monosaccharides take some time and acts as a partial brake, because the extracted sugar is very concentrated, compared to eating a naturally sugary food, the glucose and fructose surge in the system. A So it is with a little bit of bemusement that I watch the latest explosion of the back-to-the land movement because I really never left it.
A A I giggle when we make homemade macaroni & cheese to take someplace and it is viewed as some sort of accomplishment because in my family that is pretty standard fare.

A This is one of the reasons that I tend to focus on using herbs and foods that I can grow or wild-craft in my area. A When you dona€™t eat properly, your body does not find the nutrition in the food you eat, it will find the nutrients someplace in your body such as your bones, muscles or brain matter.A A This is especially true of protein which your body will leach from your muscles or brain matter and vitamins and calcium which your body will take from your bones. This whole grain has 8 grams of hunger-busting protein and 5 grams of fiber in one cup, and you'll also get iron, zinc, selenium, and vitamin E.

Symptom pictures range from full-blown chronic fatigue symptoms to multiple food sensitivities and brain fog.
Included are foundational elements of working with the whole person and the whole plant rather than isolating or compartmentalizing either human or herb. Special attention will be paid to the differentiation and use of diaphoretics that stimulate, relax or do both at once.
The four pillars of evaluation and treatment - 1) energetics, 2) organ systems, 3) action and 4) specific indications. In nature typically in a piece of fruit, the sugar is a mixture of sucrose (glucose bound to fructose), free glucose, and free fructose.
The glucose enters the controlled glycolysis pathway, but the fructose bypasses it, and floods the Krebs cycle and the related fat-building pathway in large amounts, symbolically like a -flood- into those pathways below the control point in glycolysis. A You need to eat enough to provide your body with the foods you need.A It is almost impossible to do this with two meals a day so your body begins to crave foods that will give it that quick energy fix.
There is nothing quite so satisfying as a healing soup simmering away slowly on the stovetop, while the flavors and properties of the herbs flow gently into the food.

A A vast majority of health complaints in this country; fatigue, mental fogginess, depression, etca€¦ are caused by your bodies natural response to incomplete nutrition.
Capsaicin seems to curb appetite and speed up metabolism slightly, but only for a short time. Having half a grapefruit or a glass of grapefruit juice before a meal fills you up, so you eat fewer calories during the meal. Blueberries are a good example because most stores carry them and they're loaded with antioxidants. Hot food takes longer to eat, and all that liquid and fiber will help you feel full longer. Studies suggest nuts can promote weight loss and improve cholesterol levels when eaten in moderation.
Omega-3s, which are found in salmon, herring, and other fatty fish, may help protect against heart disease and other chronic conditions.

When this pie comes out of the oven, it releases the most wonderful, irresistible aromas of the Italian meats and cheeses! It will draw heavily from my 5 years working at a mixed modality (conventional and holistic) free clinic in my hometown as well as other places I have volunteered. Humans have no natural mechanism to deal with this, so the liver does 3 things, start making a lot of of fat and, if chronic, increasing the enzymes that manufacture fat, reduce the production of ATP via the Krebs cycle, and become resistant to the effects of insulin which would otherwise tell the liver to stop releasing glucose into the system. A A EvenA though that changed a bit when my parents moved us to town, my family hung on to a great deal of that lifestyle. Unfortunately in our society,A candy bars and coffee are far more available than a leafy green salad or a whole-grain snack.A You have to plan a bit more to provide yourself with healthy alternative but it is completely worth the effort.
Try taking your tea hot, because it takes longer to drink, providing a soothing, mindful experience. Have it before a meal, and soup can take up space that might have gone to higher-calorie foods.
Never ignore professional medical advice in seeking treatment because of something you have read on the WebMD Site. So, plasma has truer color and does better in darker rooms, and LCD has more vivid color and does better in bright rooms. A Interestingly, I didn't notice any real lemon highlights in the meat, but it was darn good! Simply zap it (short duration for small citrus, longer duration for larger), let it rest for a moment, squeeze as you normally would.
A For me, once I'm done with the smoke, I like to wrap it in foil and put it back in for the rest of the time. You can always combine all the ingredients and put in your slow cooker and slow cook it on low for 8 hours, it makes it ever BETTER!
Dredge each chicken in flour and brown each side over medium heat until golden, about 3-4 minutes in butter. He spent an hour going over what he saw in my blood as well as giving me pointers that would move me into a greater state of health. A large piece of this class will be devoted to answering attendeea€™s practical questions about their personal situations and how they can bring their skills forward. If we would fill our bellies with fruit we would still only get a relatively small amount of free fructose. Current scientific A thinking on the adverse metabolic effects of sugar, the cluster of diseases that appear when the sugar trade emerges in a region, is that the overfeeding of the fructose pathway and the resulting consequences are responsible for the insulin resistance and obesity. Most of it seems much like sucrose, 45 percent glucose and 55 percent fructose, not all that different. A Once you address your eating patterns, you can begin to look at the nutrients your body needs to properly support your nervous system. Bee pollen is an amazing nutrient which I should devote a whole blog entry to, but I do worry about our dwindling bee population and the availability of this nutrient.A A Consequently,A I use it sparingly and with a great deal of respect for the creatures who created it in mind. This takes longer and you'll burn a few calories chewing, as opposed to gulping down a smoothie. To turn this dish into a meal, you could add beans and stir in extra tomato, cucumber, and parsley. You can also make a satisfying, low-calorie meal out of soup alone by adding chicken, fish, cut-up vegetables, or beans.
Add beans, tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, chili seasoning, V-8, apple cider vinegar and spices.
If we digest starch that has fructose in the chain of sugars in the starch, that is really slow.
The problem is that in HFCS, the fructose is -free- it does not have to be split from sucrose, and is not bound to fiber.
Flank steak, eye of round, and top sirloin are extra-lean with less than 4 grams of saturated fat per serving. But, therea€™s no such thing as a 1080p TV broadcast (cable, satellite, anything), and wona€™t be for years.

Unroll pie crust dough and place in a lightly greased 9 inch pie pan, fit into pan with edges overlapping.
It is one thing to have lab work and testing, and quite another to witness firsthand what is transpiring in your blood. The result is that in the Krebs Cycle, the entrance of glucose into the cycle is highly regulated by enzymes, when ATP is adequate to high, if forms a brake on the glycolysis pathway, but fructose, on the one hand, enters the cycle one step below the control point.
Historically, anthropologically, evolutionarily, we didn’t need to evolve a control on the fructose metabolic pathway.
A few years ago, the lead article in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition proposed the introduction of unbound liquid fructose into the food supply as -the- cause of the epidemic of obesity and diabetes that began to manifest around 1980 and continues to expand today.A Free liquid fructose appears to be benign or even beneficial because there is no spike of glucose, or even of insulin after ingesting it.
If the natural pathway for glycolysis is like water rushing down a white water canyon, with a dam at the bottom to prevent flooding, the natural fructose pathway is like a small stream that enters -below- the dam with no control on it.
There is instead a spike of fat in the form of triglycerides, but no one notices that (only fasting TG are even measured in routine lab tests). And as the liver adapts to habitual use of sugar or fructose, -then- insulin resistance is increased and insulin and glucose rise to higher levels than before and the individual becomes pre- or full blown diabetic.

Use any remaining dough to cut out dough leaves ( if desired.) Brush the top with the beaten egg. Rick provided me with photos for this page and I've filled in some of the gaps with screen grabs taken from the video that was taping our session.Nov.
There are several stages of microorganisms? here which include yeast, bacteria and fibrin, fungus and mold. In the background are 'shadow cells' which were healthy red blood cells that 'popped' due to the loss of their phospolipid membranes.
This can occur from an acid producing diet, and poor assimilation of nutrients.Rick's comments "Healthy blood cells will be perfectly round, nice and dark with a glowing halo around them.
Usually, if they have enough moisture inside them they are fully round because there is more pressure inside the cell then outside.""These 'shadow' or ghost cells were once perfectly healthy cells, you can see by their shape and color that they were—and they've now disappeared into the background. Every cell in the body has a double membrane of fat made up of phospholipids, a two layer membrane. The acids can disentegrate the cell membrane as well as when your body ferments sugar, alcohol is the byproduct, and alcohol can easily melt the cell membrane.""Whatever is happening in the blood cells is happening to the rest of the body. Clotted mass of blood cells due to changes in the cells polarity, loss of natural negative electrical charge. When there are this many cells and this little water, we are looking at the hydration level of the body. These nets act as a defense mechanism for the bacteria so that the white blood cells can't get to them.
There is no doubt that that is not part of normal healthy blood, and it's way bigger then what I think could survive in your cardiovascular system without being filtered out by your filter organs. That's why I don't think it's a fiber, per se, because it's so big compared to everything else. From a biology point of view, my best guess is that it would be a contaminent that has nothing to do with you. The red blood cells are fermenting as the yeast eats the cell itself.Above: Neutrophils You go guys! The other arrow is free-floating yeast, and you can see there is quite a bit of it in the blood. Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is the most important and most effective alkalizer your body makes to try and keep alkaline balance. This is not the greatest water filter but what it does is alkaline the water, so instead of drinking water that is pH 5 or 6, one is drinking water with a pH of 8-10 giving the body a running start on staying alkaline.
The benefits of this water are it's antioxidant properties which nullify free radical scavengers, plus the extra oxygen in the water is supposed to give energy and boost alertness and memory.Candida detox Next on the plate is to tackle the candida with capyrilic acid and olive leaf extract (for about 2 months).
I'm just going to take the recommended dosages on the bottles adding in one teaspoon of l-glutamine powder per day. The glutamine assists in strengthening the gut wall and helps patch any holes left by the yeast (which could lead to leaky gut syndrome and the problems it leads to, such as food allergies and parasites) Respiration "The biggest acid you make everyday is carbonic acid. Every cell in your body is producing carbon dioxide from the bottom of your feet to the top of your head that is also surrounded by water and the carbon dioxide plus water makes carbonic acid, that's a very simple thing to keep in mind. By looking for acid based balance the amount of acid produced per day must be equal to the amount excreted or nutralized per day.
The thing that is happening is, if your body can't neutralize or eliminate the acid you stay at that level, you can't go beyond that level of health. You are taking the chest cavity, ribs and the lungs and trying to get them to be fantastic.
Do 10 deep breaths a day 3x's a day (with long exhalation), in one month you are going to have a respiratory function that is 10%-15% better then you have now. Which means 10%-15% more energy and 10-15% less fermentation because fermentation only takes place where there is no oxygen. It's the greatest tool you have and it's free."Alkalizing with baking soda "The methods of getting rid of acidity from the body are respiration, perspiration, defecation and urination. Rick gave me a great little tool (from the vet) that allows me to carry the soda in my back pocket making it more convienient to take. This is problematic for those of us taking supplements upon rising which are not supposed to be taken with clay.
However, I'm trying to fit it in somewhere along the line.Magnesium oxide also called Oxy-Mag (NOW makes it).
The process of oxygenating the bowel breaks down and eliminates solidified waste lodged in the large and small intestines.
Beware, if you take it (up to one teaspoon at night in water with the juice of 1-2 lemons), you must leave time the next morning to eliminate fully. Rick says that eventually this watery stool will cease when the body is cleaned of accumulated waste. I try and do this once a week.Food During our session together I became increasingly confused about food.
All those veggies will eventually turn to sugar so they have to be balanced out with oils and proteins. I was told by Nancy that each meal should have a carb, oil and protein and have been following that for some time. Rick has said the same thing and suggested I start the day with a chia smoothie."The perfect breakfast would be 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, ground to be chia meal with 2 tablespoons of chlorophyl, (spirulina, chlorella or grass powders (greener grasses, alkavision greens). Ground flax seeds can be added." "Chlorophyll is very cleansing and is a blood builder and it has a molecular structure that looks almost identical to red blood cells. When you take the chia seed and the flax seeds which are 28% protein 40-50% omega 3 fatty acids, that's very little carbohydrate there. The greens are 100% carbohydrate and when you mix them together, now you have carbs that burn like paper and you've got fats and oils, with proteins that don't really burn. The fats and oils are like the charcoal—now you have a sustained burn going on and then you don't ferment the sugars because the coal, the fatty acids, are there. So that breakfast with the chia seeds or flax seeds, or both, and any of those chlorophyls you are using can be a very beneficial superfood breakfast.
They time release and give it back to you so you have have nice long sustained energy with oils, proteins and carbs all day. You'd be surprised, you don't need a lot of food, what you need is the right food."Rick suggested the more chia seeds used, the less hungry one will be.
In fact, chia seeds have the highest known whole-food source levels of Omega-3 acids, as measured by percent of weight.• ?Rich In Antioxidants. Chia is a great natural source of antioxidants, including chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid, myricetin, quercetin and flavonols.• Full of Important Nutrients. Chia is an excellent source of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc and copper. About five percent of this fiber is soluble, which can help reduce cholesterol.• Builds Endurance. Chia builds stamina and endurance because it steadily releases slow-burning glucose into the bloodstream.• ?Gluten-Free.
Since essential amino acids are not produced by the body, it's important to get amino acids from nutrient-rich sources like chia seeds.
Research suggests leucine may help regulate blood sugar levels and aid in muscle recovery after exercise.• ?Stays Fresh. 16, 2012 • 2nd Live blood microscopyI saw Rick for a second live blood analysis on November 16, 2012.
No ghost cells, no rouleax or sticky blood, the red blood cells are fuller, look stronger and are hydrated. Candida has been greatly reduced in just 2+ months.?The treatment of olive leaf extract, caprylic acid and l-glutamine powder as per his suggestion for candida is working. I began addressing it by taking one capsule of both the olive leaf and caprylic acid plus one heaping tsp. After I was sure I had no reactions to this, upped the dosage to 2 caps of each with one tsp.
That is not to say that the Morgellons has been effected, we saw two fibers in the dried blood samples.
There seemed to me to be more bacteria in the blood and the white blood cells although they are strong and were very active were not plentiful. I attribute the lower level of white blood cell activity to the fact that I was more sedentary these past two months then normally due to a foot problem that kept me off it. Rick suggested that I do lymphatic drainage work using a brush or mitt, followed by getting on a rebounder to jumpstart the lymph moving.
He feels that getting the lymphatics going will produce more white blood cells to remove the bacteria from the blood.The chia seeds in the morning are wonderful. Rick suggests way to activate more white blood cell activity by way of the lymphatic system.
