Everyone Shouldn’t Touch You: Stop Allowing These “Spirits” To Lay Hands On You

Image may contain: one or more people, text that says 'EVERYONE SHOULDN'T TOUCH YOU Yall gonna learn. Stop allowing all these Spirits lay hands on you. Some ain't praying they're Preying, planting and seducing.'

Fundamentally, handshaking is a sign of courtesy. This custom started in medieval times. The history of the handshake dates back to the 5th century B.C. in Greece but its origins are somewhat murky. Many believe that it began as a symbol of peace, good faith when making an oath or promise and showing that neither person was carrying a weapon.  Some even suggest that the up-and-down motion of the handshake was supposed to dislodge any knives or daggers that might be hidden up a sleeve.

Handshakes basically are a form of nonverbal communication.

Much like sniffing, both parties in a handshake are exchanging sensory information about each other. Some people will try to portray certain qualities in a handshake or show their dominance.

There is a societal expectation or pressure that has been created where people feel obligated to accept someone’s handshake.

If you decline or ignore the handshake — the other party may take a defensive stance, feel as if it was a snub, think you’re an awkward person, they may also think you are a germ phobic or that your are just being rude. This can also leave an unfriendly first impression due to the response of denying the handshake conveyed.

This kind of pressure has simply created an extra unnecessary ongoing source of stress for myself over the years.

My main reason for declining something as simple as a handshake is more than just mere germs or to see who has a dominate firm grip.

It’s Spiritual attachments or possessions. People who are aware that there are other things in this world that are “preying”, planting and trying to seduce.

These non-crossed over spirits human or not, will attach themselves to your energy field for the purpose of using your energy  and or manipulating your behavior to serve themselves.

Some spirit attachments can actually be friendly, lost individuals who have inadvertently attached themselves as a means to get energy, not realizing it is actually harmful, but others can attach maliciously and intentionally harmful. Spiritual attachment or possession can affect people in many different ways.

When a person, a human being, freely chooses to be possessed completely by a demon or Satan himself, forever.

The ties to God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit are completely severed and cannot be repaired.

It is not often that a person who has passed through the three stages of possession chooses perfect possession.

It is more common that a person who chooses perfect possession has either become a practicing Satanist or has made the decision with their own free will prior to the possession.

They may want to choose it for wealth, power, influence or other reasons.

But they choose it and give their lives over completely at that time.

The Holy Spirit warns us not to get anywhere near that body occupied by Satan.

Once a person has completely given over to the Devil, he/she controls the perfectly possessed person’s body, mind and soul, and ‘lives’ through them, controlling every minute of their life until they die. Only then is that person beyond god’s help but don’t fret there are sources to help those who want to be helped.

CLEANSING YOUR PROPERTY

how to Smudge property and people 

Crystals to Use for Protection 

The method that causes me the least stress, by far, is to place my right hand over my heart and nod once while smiling. This gesture is simple and friendly, and it allows me to take charge of my side of the introduction by showing the other person how I am comfortable interacting. I’ve found that people who have extended a hand to shake mine are quick to “switch gears” (in the friendly sense!) when I set this example.

Before I began using the hand-over-heart gesture, people would often interpret my discomfort at shaking hands as many things. With the best of intentions, these people would then try to find some other innocent way to touch me in greeting: a fist bump, a touch to the arm, or even a hug! Since these forms of contact are as unpleasant to me as handshakes, they caused me to show similar tension in response, and I’m afraid that my reaction reaffirmed any unfriendly first impression that my response to the handshake conveyed.

Hypothyroidism Slow Cooker Apple-Scented Venison Roast

A Whole Season of Autumn Meals to Celebrate Fall.

This compilation of “stay-in” dinners is our first ever round up entirely composed from Thehypothyroidismchick.com list of awesomerecipes! In light of that, do you think we’re officially allowed to call ourselves the “no need to look anywhere else weeknight dinner hypothyroidism blog”?

With the beginning of autumn comes the beginning of comfort-food season, when hearty dishes help us adjust to colder weather. 

Mother Nature paints this beautiful landscape of rich golden enchanting colors. The sound of leaves crackling benefit my feet as I take a deep breath of the fresh air crisp. My soul begins to feel the renewed harmony from the hot hazy, hustle and bustle days of summer. In the distance, I hear the gabble of a flock of geese all lined up in perfect formation beginning to head south for the winter. The smell of fall scented candles and Friday night football games let’s not fail to forget the fun of tailgating. I have many fond memories of laughing around a bonfire, and staying toasty while enjoying a night out with friends. I just love the way my oversized sweater snugs my skin and the warm pumpkin latte keeps my belly warm. Fall is one of the most packed holiday seasons. This is a season to be truly thankful, and to simply surround yourself with friend and family that are dear to your heart.

Slow Cooker Apple-Scented Venison Roast

1 tablespoon olive oil

3 pounds boneless venison roast

1 large apple, cored and quartered

2 small onions, sliced

4 cloves crushed garlic

1 cup boiling water

1 cube beef bouillon

After the roast is done, remove it from the slow cooker, throw away the apple.  Mix the water and bouillon into the slow cooker until the bouillon has dissolved.  You can serve this as a delicious sauce with the roast.

The Best Little Hypothyroidism Autumn CookBook 

I don’t know where to start

Hang in there. This wont happen overnight.

I know, there is so much information overload that most people are confused as to where to start.  You can start by taking ownership of your health. I wanted you to understand or get a idea of how everything has a part to play in your body. I am on a  path to help you, lead you and inform you through this terrible illness. Being diagnosed with hypothyroidism isn’t just here take this pill and it will fix your issues. Hypothyroidism has a root cause. Once you start addressing the root of your problems then your body can start healing itself. Your body is an awesome design but there is a complex balance between everything. It’s a domino affect. If you have something in your body that is overworked  it will cause a major shift in your body. Don’t worry the good news is it can be healed.

Sometimes we have to do a little pruning of the branches, in order for the tree to be healthy again. A number of things can be the reason why you have hormonal imbalances, food intolerances, thyroid issues, adrenal fatigue, weight gain, insomnia, personality changes, leaky gut, depression, an autoimmune disorder, chronic pain, no metabolism and low sex drive, bloating, anxiety, menstrual problems and infertility. It starts with becoming aware and how your health can be influenced by many different circumstances.
How would you define good health? Logically one would define good health as absence of a disease or following some sort of ground rules that avoid developing a disease. This book can help you begin to understand what a Keto Autoimmune protocol is and start guiding you in the redevelopment and healing of your body. You will begin to understand how to fix your gut, strengthen your immunity and fight inflammation with an autoimmune approach. The Keto AIP removes all the common inflammatory food triggers that stimulate a possible autoimmune reaction in the body. Along with helping to reset those adrenals, boosting that energy and doing a little ass kicking to those hormones that have decided to act like a wild college student and pull an all-nighter the day before final exams.
Your health doesn’t have to be a difficult situation but a positive realization that things need to change. This new lifestyle change has many parts to it and I hope you will embrace not only the physical but the spiritual awakening. Common food intolerances that are known to trigger inflammation are eliminated in this Keto AIP protocol are Nightshades, Eggs, Grains (gluten), Dairy, Legumes, Corn, Soy, Dairy and lectins.

Slow Cooker Breakfast Baked Apples

This breakfast dish has the same taste as an apple pie without the guilt.  This certainly isn’t an everyday breakfast dish but it is a special weekend treat to reward yourself.  Did you know that just two Brazil nuts will give you your daily allowance of selenium?  Selenium will give your thyroid a boost that it needs. Not to mention the fiber in the apples and oats are benefit to keeping you regular.

1/4 cup coconut flour

¼ cup diced Brazil nuts

1/2 cup rolled steel cut oats

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 tsp Ceylon cinnamon

5 tbsp. real organic butter or Ghee

5 organic red apples

1/2 cup freshly made apple juice or apple cider

In a bowl, mix brown sugar, Brazil nuts, butter, and cinnamon. In another bowl, moisten the ¼ cup of rolled oats with a tablespoon of apple juice.  Add the oats to your 1st mixture and combine well.

I use a melon baller to core as much as I can of the center part. Try to reach as close as you can to ½ inch to the bottom of the apple. Also, keeping the skin on will help it hold the apple together as it bakes.  

Next, fill the apples with the filling and place them in the slow cooker.

After you’ve placed them in the slow cooker pour the apple juice or cider around the apples in the slow cooker. 

Cook for 2½ to 3 hours on high until the apples are soft and start to begin to collapse.

Slow Cooker Pumpkin Polenta

What is polenta? It is simply finely ground cornmeal. This recipe that always turns out creamy, lump-free, and delicious.

2 cups polenta

6 cups of water

1 tablespoon of Himalayan sea salt

1 tablespoon of pumpkin puree

Spray your slow cooker with non-stick spray. Whisk the cornmeal (or polenta), water and salt together in the slow cooker. Cook on low for 4-5 hours, stir one time half-way through.

Please don’t over stir the polenta and by letting it sit there and cook when you take off the lid? It’s ta-da! Perfect polenta.  Ladle into a bowl and serve.

1 cup of raw pumpkin seeds

Melt coconut oil. Mix everything with the seeds in a bowl. Lay seeds on a baking dish. Roast for 20 minutes tossing after 10. Keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t become overly brown. That means the inside of the seed is burning.   

Fermented Apple Sauce

6-8 red organic apples

2 tablespoons of water kefir

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

½ teaspoon of Himalayan sea salt

Core and slice apples. Blend in a food processor, add your kefir, cinnamon and salt.

Pour apple sauce into clean mason jars and seal with the lids. Leave about an inch of space from the apple sauce to the lid of the jars. (Might explode if not) Store in your food dehydrator for 3 days on the lowest warm tempura available. 100 F. Next place it in your fridge and make sure you eat it within two months.

I wanted to create a fall cookbook for those of us suffering from hypothyroidism that makes you feel as if you’re inviting an old friend in for coffee.

If you’ve been considering switching to a hypothyroidism diet, you may be wondering if you have to give up your favorite foods along with flavor. This is far from the truth.  Switching to a hypothyroidism diet means that you are catering to heal your thyroid.  You can still enjoy your favorite fall recipes following a hypothyroidism diet- you’ll just need to learn what substitutions you will need to make to create wonderful fall hypothyroidism recipes.

This is where this book that I’ve written for you comes into play. In this book, you will find a collection of many fall favorite recipes that you and your family are sure to love.

If you’ve ever considered a hypothyroidism diet, this recipe book is a great starting resource. I will teach you the benefits and restrictions of a hypothyroidism diet. Eating to cater to your hypothyroidism is very healthy and as you’re enjoying the wonderfully delightful fall foods you are also starting to heal your hypothyroidism.

If we don’t change, how can we expect change? We have to create a movement within. Read labels. Do research. Listen with an open ear. There is a bigger picture with a hidden agenda. Why be their guinea pigs? Ponds in their game? You really do must ask what I am “YELLING”!? The drugs u take, the food u eat, the chemicals u surrounds yourself with. Can it be that easy to be set up for bad health?

This a fantastic book is for anyone suffering from hypothyroidism, especially someone recently diagnosed. I’ve given you some good ideas from a wide range of options! 

Slow Cooker Navy Beans with Smoked Turkey legs

1 pounds dried pinto beans 

 8 cups water, or more if needed 

 1 small onion, chopped

 2 teaspoons garlic powder 

 1/2 teaspoon onion powder 

 1 teaspoon ground black pepper 

 2 bay leaves 

 1 smoked turkey leg 

 1/3 cup olive oil 

Place your beans in a colander bowl to rinse off and pick over the beans, then place them in a large bowl. Fill the bowl with cold water, and soak the beans for 6 to 8 hours over night.

Soaking beans for many hours before cooking them produces a lot of scum which is course,   you rinse and drain away after you’ve soaked them overnight.

What is all that scum anyway?  Anti-nutrients, that’s what!  Those anti-nutrients such as phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors are going to be in your gut causing you gas, heartburn, reflux and maybe other digestive upsets when you eat the beans you soak them before cooking.   Traditional cultures took great care to prepare their legumes with a long soak before cooking to enhance digestibility and nutrient absorption.

After you’ve soaked your beans drain and rinse the beans, then place into a slow cooker. Pour in 8 cups of water. Stir in onion, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, and bay leaves. Place the turkey leg into the cooker, cover, and cook on Low setting for 6 hours. Stir in olive oil, and add more water if the beans are beginning to dry out; cook until the beans are very tender, an additional 2 hours. This recipe is great with a side of gluten free cornbread and some minced red onions on top!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Pot Roast Dinner

1 lb. small red potatoes, cleaned, diced and skin left on (if you are sensitive to nightshades or are AIP use sweet potatoes)

2   cups ready-to-eat baby-cut carrots 

1 cup frozen small whole onions 

6 boneless free-range organic skinless chicken thighs

1/2   teaspoon Himalayan Sea Salt  

 1/8   teaspoon pepper   

 1 1/2   cup frozen sweet peas

 Spray the slow cooker with cooking spray. Place potatoes, carrots and onions in slow cooker. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper; lay the chicken over vegetables in the slow cooker. Cover; cook on a Low heat setting 6 hours. Next you want to stir in peas. Increase heat setting to High. Cover again and cook about 1 more hour or until peas are tender.

Slow Cooker Spicy Salmon Chowder

8 oz. organic red potatoes, diced into 1/2-inch chunks (if you are sensitive to nightshades or are AIP use sweet potatoes)

8 oz. roasted frozen corn

15 oz. can creamed corn

1 small onion, diced

1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and diced

1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced

2 cups seafood broth (if you can’t find seafood broth use chicken or vegetable broth)

1 tsp. Old bay seafood seasoning

2 5 oz. cans salmon, drained (or 1 cup leftover cooked salmon, flaked)

1 cup coconut cream

5 dashes hot sauce (optional)

I place my salmon in a bowl and pick the bones out. The bones are edible but I prefer not to eat them.  Place everything in your slow cooker except the Salmon, cream and hot sauce. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.

30 minutes prior to being done. Using an immersion blender, puree the soup until thickened. If you don’t have an immersion blender. Ladle the soup in batches a regular blender.  Remember this is hot soup! Return the blended soup to the slow cooker if you’re having to use the blender. Stir in the salmon and cream and the hot sauce. Finish cooking for an additional 30 minutes. Give the soup a sample taste. You can add more seafood seasoning if necessary. Ladle into bowls and serve. This recipe is perfect with a side of gluten free cornbread!

Fresh Vegetable Soup

 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

 1 medium red onion, diced

 4 cloves fresh garlic, chopped

2 medium zucchini squash, trimmed, diced

2 medium carrots, chopped

1 heaping cup thinly shredded cabbage

2-14-oz cans Muir Glen fire roasted tomatoes with juice

1/2 cup chopped roasted green chiles- mild or hot, to taste

2-3 cups light GF broth, as needed

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil or cilantro

Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

Teaspoon of organic raw coconut sugar (this cuts the acid of the tomatoes)

Mix 2 tablespoons of olive oil with the chopped garlic, red inions and fresh vegetables in the bottom of the slow cooker.  Add the diced tomatoes and roasted green chiles. Gently stir to mix.

Pour enough broth in to cover the veggies at least an inch of the liquid. Season with fresh herbs, sea salt, ground pepper, and red pepper flakes. Cook on low for 6 hours or on high for 3. After it is done. Mix in the coconut sugar. Ladle into bowls and serve. This would be perfect with some Sweet Potato gluten free Cornbread.

Sweet Potato Cornbread Recipe

This gluten-free sweet potato cornbread is super easy to make and perfect for a crowd.

½ cup unsalted butter (1 stick)

1½ cups Bob’s Red mill, gluten free, ground cornmeal

1½ cups almond flour/meal

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ cup maple syrup

1½ cups cooked, mashed sweet potato (about 2 medium)

3 large eggs, room temperature

½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 cup non-dairy buttermilk (I used almond), room temperature

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Put stick of butter in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet and place on middle rack in oven until butter is melted. In a medium bowl, combine cornmeal, almond meal, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and ground cinnamon. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat maple syrup and sweet potatoes until combined. Beat in eggs, as well as vanilla extract. In batches, alternate adding dry ingredients and buttermilk until well combined. When butter has melted in skillet, carefully remove from oven. Making sure skillet is evenly coated, pour excess butter into batter. Mix until evenly incorporated. Bake for 25-35 minutes until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Allow the cornbread to cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Slow Cooker Apple-Scented Venison Roast

1 tablespoon olive oil

3 pounds boneless venison roast

1 large apple, cored and quartered

2 small onions, sliced

4 cloves crushed garlic

1 cup boiling water

1 cube beef bouillon

Spray your slow cooker with olive oil spray. Place the venison roast inside, and cover with apple, onions, and garlic. Cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours until the roast is tender. After the roast is done, remove it from the slow cooker, throw away the apple.  Mix the water and bouillon into the slow cooker until the bouillon has dissolved.  You can serve this as a delicious sauce with the roast.

Sweet Corn Chowder with Hot-Smoked Salmon

1 tablespoon non-dairy or non-soy butter

2 cups chopped onion

1 1/2 cups cubed peeled baking potato (if you are sensitive to nightshades or are AIP use sweet potatoes)

3 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth 

1 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels

1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added cream-style corn

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper

2 (4.5-ounce) packages hot-smoked salmon, flaked

4 teaspoons chopped fresh chives

Directions:

Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion; sauté 4 minutes until soft. Add potato and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until potato is tender. Add corn kernels and cream-style corn; cook 5 minutes. Stir in peppers. Ladle 1 1/4 cups chowder into each of 4 soup bowls. Divide salmon evenly among bowls. Garnish each serving with 1 teaspoon chives.

Pumpkin Cranberry Bars

    ½ cup pumpkin puree

    ½ cup coconut butter, softened

    ¼ cup honey

    2 eggs

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

    ½ teaspoon salt

    1 teaspoon baking soda

    ½ cup dried cranberries

    In a medium bowl, mix the pumpkin puree, coconut butter, and honey together.

    Add the eggs, vanilla, spice, salt, and baking soda and mix well. If you have an egg allergy you can replace this with 2 tablespoon of chia seeds that have been soaked in 2 tablespoons of water.  Next mix in the dried cranberries. Place the batter on a greased baking pan or line it with parchment paper and place it in the oven.  Bake for 30-35 minutes in a 350 degree oven until the edges are beginning to brown and the center is set.  These will seem very soft almost appear under-done in the middle but the set up nicely if you allow them to cool completely. Cut into 16 pieces and store in the refrigerator or freezer.

Cookie Crumb Cranberry Bars

    2 eggs

    1/2 cup organic coconut sugar

    1/2 cup organic coconut oil melted

    1 tsp pure vanilla extract

    3/4 cup organic coconut flour

    A pinch of Himalayan sea salt

    1 cup homemade cranberry sauce or if you don’t have any on hand you can use organic whole berry cranberry sauce

    Extra sprinkle of coconut sugar to top

 In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and coconut sugar until smooth, then the coconut oil and vanilla until combined.

    Combine the coconut flour and salt, then add to the wet ingredients to form a dough. Coconut flour is very dense and will expand after it’s added, so the dough will become thicker as it sits. To firm it up enough to press it into the baking dish, you can place it in the freezer for 5-10 minutes.

    After its been chilled, press about 2/3 of the dough into the bottom of the parchment lined baking dish using another piece of parchment paper to press down since it will be sticky. You want the bottom layer to be about 1/4-1/2 inch thick, take more dough from the remaining mixture if needed.  Next preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line an 8 x 8″ square baking dish with parchment paper.

    Bake the bottom crust in the preheated oven for about 7 minutes until it’s almost set. While this is baking you can place the remaining dough in the freezer to chill.

    Remove the bottom crust and immediately top with the cranberry sauce, then crumbled the remaining chilled dough all over the top. Sprinkle with a bit more coconut sugar as desired, then return to the oven to bake for another 18-20 minutes, or until crust and topped are golden brown and filling is bubbly.

    After removing from oven, allow the bars to cool completely before cutting into squares and serving.

Homemade All Natural Pumpkin latte Spiced Deodorant

I’ve been making my own deodorant for years. I wanted to share a recipe out of my latest book, A Survivor’s Cookbook Guide to Kicking Hypothyroidism’s booty.  It all started when I came across an article on the Internet about how aluminum-based antiperspirants may increase the risk for breast cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and kidney disease. (Scientists noticed that dialysis patients who had these high aluminum levels were more likely to develop dementia too.) Our bodies are supposed to sweat. Sweat isn’t inherently stinky either. In fact, it’s nearly odorless. The stench comes from bacteria that break down from one of two types of sweat on your skin. Deodorant advertisers have done a pretty neat job of convincing us that we’re disgustingly smelly people who in fact need to be refined and save our stinky selves by their products. We’ve been wonderfully brainwashed into thinking sweating is a bad thing. Sweating from the heat, sweating from exercise, and sweating from stress are all different, chemically speaking. Stress sweat smells the worst. That’s because smelly sweat is only produced by one of the two types of sweat glands called the apocrine glands, which are usually in areas with lots of hair—like our armpits, the groin area, and scalp. The odor is the result of the bacteria that break down the sweat once it’s released onto your skin. Fun fact: While women have more sweat glands than men, men’s sweat glands produce more sweat.

Pumpkin latte Spiced Deodorant

1/2 cup baking soda

1/2 cup arrowroot powder or 1/2 cup of cornstarch

5 tablespoon unrefined virgin coconut oil

10 drops of Pumpkin Spice or Fall Leaves or Happy Holidays If your wanting more traditional all natural smell them just use 10 drops of   lavender essential oil

Mix baking soda and arrowroot together. Melt your coconut oil in the microwave in a microwave-safe bowl. Mix all ingredients (the baking soda and arrowroot powder) with the oil. Pour into clean small Mason jar. Add your essential oil to the Mason jar; close with the lid. Give it a good shake to combine the essential oil with the other mixture. By doing it this way, you can still use that bowl to eat with.  Once you mix that essential oil in the bowl, it can only be used for the purpose of making your deodorant. Everything you’ve used is edible except the essential oils. Let cool.

Are You Having Regular Bowel Movements?

Our body recycles our waste and hormone byproducts, which can lead to a toxic build-up in our colons.  When you’re “backed up” it means that you are circulating blood unclean blood and as a result unclean tissues and organs. This will weaken the health of our organs and in return them wont function as well as they need too. You’re also allowing the rotting food that is sitting in your colon to have a change for pathogens such as parasites, bacteria and fungus to grow which could lead to diverticulitis and or a leaky gut.  A leaky gut allows undigested food, proteins, toxins, cholesterol and fats to pass through into the bloodstream.

Pooping is your body’s way to get rid of waste buildup.  We have two types of poopers in this world: Type A has their pooping down to a science. They go every day at the same time and usually (if they can help it) in the same toilet. (This is me)  Then there’s Type B. This group doesn’t go that often and has no real ritual to its toilet habits. So, you may ask, is one healthier than the other? The answer is no. Everyone is different. There really is no “normal” habit for pooping.  The average person poops approximately once a day—about 1 ounce of stool for each 12 pounds of her or his body weight. That means a person weighing 160 pounds produces an average of just under a pound of poop each day. Poop is made up of 75% water  the remaining parts are made from a mixture of dead bacteria that helped us to digest our food, living bacteria, protein, indigestible fiber, and waste materials from the liver and intestines. Don’t start to worry if you bathroom habits change. It’s going to happen. We go on vacation & things happen in our lives. As long as your bathroom trips don’t cause pain or discomfort you are pretty much okay. Your digestive system works all day and every day, so it’s okay if you experience changes from time to time.  If you have constipation or diarrhea that lasts for longer than weeks at a time or blood in your stool you need to check with your doctor.

27 Tips To start Naturally Start Healing Your Thyroid

You have to be in charge of your health.

#1 Find a good holistic practitioner or a doctor who will listen to you and run the proper tests. A practitioner will also start searching for the underlying issues of your hypothyroidism. They will give you advice and solutions to work towards finding the answer. We all are different and make up uniquely. What is my reason for having hypothyroidism might not be your reason.

    TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone)

TSH – This is a pituitary hormone that responds to low/high amounts of thyroid hormone that is moving around in your blood stream. In some cases of Hashimoto’s and primary hypothyroidism, this lab test will be elevated. In the case of Graves’ disease the TSH will be low. People with Hashimoto’s and central hypothyroidism may have a normal reading on this test.

    Thyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPO Antibodies) & Thyroglobulin Antibodies (TG Antibodies)

    Thyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPO Antibodies) and Thyroglobulin Antibodies (TG Antibodies) – People with Hashimoto’s will have an elevation of one or both of these antibodies.

    Free T3 & Free T4

Free T3 & Free T4 – These tests measure the levels of active thyroid hormone moving around in the body.

    Reverse T3

    Basic Metabolic Panel

    Ferritin level (iron)

So, don’t allow your doctor to perform a standard TSH test. Those in itself are simply unreliable. You want to have vitamin panels, hormone panels, candida test, Lyme tests, and adrenal tests too.

#2 Keeping your Blood Sugar in Check

Low GI (glycemic index)/ Low Carb diets are based on the principles of balancing your blood sugar. The reason for keeping your blood sugar in check is to not have your blood sugar and insulin levels to rise to fast and high. This roller coaster of blood sugar highs and lows will activate your stress hormones and are catabolic to our tissues including the gut lining, lungs and brain. Your body is in one of two states throughout the day. You’re either in an anabolic state or a catabolic state. If your body is in a constant catabolic state the protective barriers will become worn down over time and it over activates the immune system creating chaos where the body gets confused and attacks itself and wasting away as is the  case with Hashimoto’s or basically any autoimmune condition. Three things also can contribute to a catabolic state. Not working out smart. Not eating the right food. Not getting enough rest. If you are in a catabolic state you take the change of your body cannibalizing muscle. If you’re in an anabolic state is it means that you’re exercising correctly, you’re eating the right foods and you are getting plenty of rest.  Remember you can be creating more cortisol to store in your mid-section by over exercising. You want to stimulate the metabolism, not annihilate it.  The easiest way to balance blood sugar and remain in an anabolic state is to eliminate processed carbohydrates and sugar, plan meals around protein and healthy fats then load up your plate with low carb/low GI.

#3 eat more Nutrient Dense Foods

Think about what you’re putting in your body. Either you’re fighting disease or feeding disease. You must get a concept of nutrient density. Many of the foods we tend to eat, block nutrients from being absorbed. Gluten, dairy and soy products create inflammation in the digestive tract. In ancient times grains were prepared by soaking, sprouting and fermenting but that tradition in making them been long forgotten with our fast-paced culture. If you have inflammation in the digestive system undigested proteins leak into the blood stream creating a heightened immune reaction that often makes your thyroid issues worse and can lead to a leaky gut which causes other problems.

    Olives

    Avocado

    Cooked Cruciferous vegetables (Limit this to no more than 2x per week)

    Fermented foods

    Fatty fish (e.g., wild-caught salmon trout, tuna and mackerel.)

    Chicken and Turkey (organic hormone & Antibiotic free)

    Grass Fed Beef

    Leafy greens

    Nitrate free, uncured bacon

    Nuts, such as walnuts and almonds

    Seeds, such as pumpkin, chia and flax

    Coconut Flour, Almond Flour and hemp seeds

    Chia Seeds

    Kelp and seaweed

    Celtic or Himalayan sea salt

    Low carb/ Low-glycemic fruits and vegetables

    Coconut oil

    Organic butter (preferably Grass fed)

    Ghee

    Bone Broth or vegetable broth (recipes are in the book)

    Eggs: Look for pastured or omega-3 whole eggs. (If you don’t have a food allergy)

    Cheese: Unprocessed cheese (cheddar, goat, cream, blue or mozzarella).

    Fish oil (EPA/DHA)

    Magnesium

    Vitamin B Complex

    Vitamin C

    Vitamin D3

    Zinc

    Ancient Nutrition- Bone Broth Collagen Loaded with Bone Broth Co-Factors

#4 AVOID SOY

You must be confused about soy as so much has been said about this little bean. Well, if you have a thyroid condition, it’s likely that your hormonal health overall has been compromised. It’s best to avoid soy as it elevates the estrogen levels.

Food to avoid: tofu, soymilk, soy lecithin (used as fillers in f.eg veggie burgers), and soy oil.

Fermented soy like miso and tempeh are OK though. Always pick non-GMO (non-genetically modified) and MSG-free miso and tempeh)

Soy products have hormone disrupting effects. Soy is also high in isoflavones (or goitrogens), which can damage your thyroid gland. Products containing soy protein appear in nearly every aisle of the supermarket. That’s because soy doesn’t just mean tofu. Traditional soy foods also include soymilk, soynuts and edamame (green soybeans), just to name a few. Food companies also develop new food products containing soy protein from veggie burgers to fortified pastas and cereals. READ your labels. Don’t worry you still can eat fried brown rice but replace it with Coconut amino’s instead.  Soy is estrogen mimicking, goitrogenic, hexane filled, protease inhibiting, GMO & a environmental destroying food.”

#5 FIND OUT WHAT FOOD SENSITIVIES YOU MIGHT HAVE

It is believed that as much as 70% of our current population has some form of food sensitivities (different from allergies) and the main culprits are:

Gluten

Soy

Dairy

Eggs

Yeast

Fructose

Nuts

How do you know if you have it? Eliminate one food culprit at a time for 2 weeks, see if you feel any better, and then re-introduce it in large amount after the 2 weeks. If symptoms (such as bloating, headaches, fatigue, foggy brain, eczema, acne, etc.) come back, you know the culprit. It’s critical to cut out the culprit(s) as it aggravates your immune system.

#6 GETTING ENOUGH IRON–   it’s said that 60% of people with thyroid conditions are iron deficient. It’s best to get a blood test to know for sure but typical symptoms include anemia, cracking of corners of the mouth, inflamed tongue, dizziness, hair loss, brittle nails, fragile bones, sensitivity to cold, depression and confusion. Be generous with food rich in iron: liver (of any animal) and organs, beef, chicken, fish, clams, cooked spinach, lentils and butter beans. Iron is best taken by itself; on an empty stomach but if it irritates your stomach take it with a vitamin C type food. Also when you are taking an iron supplements avoid coffee, tea, calcium rich products, antacids’ and soy products this will interfere with the absorption of the iron.

#7 LIMIT YOUR INTAKE OF GOITEROUS FOODS– Goiter is a substance that slows down your thyroid. If you have hypothyroidism: You must limit them. You can eat 2 servings a week  

#8 Supplements and Medication Interactions

When it comes to thyroid medications, it’s important for you to know the medications can interact with common nutritional supplements. Calcium supplements have the potential to interfere with proper absorption of your thyroid medications. Wait 4 hours after your thyroid medication before you take anything with calcium in it.

#9 AVOID GLUTEN

Gluten causes an autoimmune reaction. Research has shown a link between wheat allergies and thyroid disease. 

#10 START COSUMING COCONUT OIL

Raw, Virgin Coconut oil has been used as just one hypothyroidism natural treatment. Coconut oil is made up of medium chain fatty acids known as medium chain triglyceride’s (MCTs), which help with metabolism and weight loss, coconut oil can also raid basal body temperatures – all good news for people suffering from low thyroid function.

#11 NUTRIENT DEFICIENCIES

The most common nutrient deficiencies are Protein, iodine, Magnesium, B-12, probiotics, Omega 3, Zinc, Iodine, B2, Vitamin C, Selenium, Vitamin D, Vitamin A and iron. Have your doctor run a panel to check for these. The best way to prevent a deficiency is to eat a balanced, real food-based diet that includes nutrient-dense foods (both plants and animals)

#12 DRINK BONE BROTH or VEGETABLE DAILY

Bone broth is the new green juice. It is full of vital nutrients that will start healing your gut and strengthens your weaken immune system. Most people have a leaky gut and doesn’t even know it. Add a pinch of Himalayan sea salt and some kelp flakes for an extra added boost of nutrition. 

#13 Avoid unnecessary body chemicals

These are commonly found in items like antibacterial soap, deodorant, lotions, and makeup. These things are poisonous. Your skin is the largest organ in the body. Whatever you put on your skin goes into your body. I can’t preach this enough. If you can’t eat it, then don’t apply it to your skin. I understand this might not be 100% doable but every little bit helps your body.

#14 Start Loving YOURSELF Again

All you seem to do is run, run and run! You are exhausted and feel guilty anytime you need to have down time because there are always things that need to be done.  So why don’t you start to allow yourself to take a day and do nothing. I mean absolutely nothing. WHY? Because your body needs to recharge and stop being ran into the freaking ground. You are not a machine. Start simple like an Epsom salt bath. Get up take a shower and put on more pajamas. Make a movie day.

#15 BE YOUR OWN HEALTH ADVOCATE

Research and study. No one needs you more than yourself. After being diagnosed my priorities were made clearer. I had to start listening to my body, stop taking my health for granted and continuing to research to figure out what I needed to do to “fix me”.        

   A lack of knowledge is a lack of power

#16 Boost your Immunity with Better Gut Health

We are consumed with little fiber and an excess of sugar, salt, and processed foods. Stress, changes in the diet, contaminated food, chlorinated water, and numerous other factors can also alter the bacterial flora in the intestinal tract. When you treat the whole person instead of just treating a disease or symptom, an imbalance in the intestinal tract stands out like an elephant in the room.  Fermented Foods are a great way to start healing your gut.

#17 EAT SEA VEGTABLES TWICE PER WEEK

Sea vegetables are a good natural source of iodine to support the thyroid. It’s super easy to add start adding some sea veggies into your diet. You can add a piece of Kombu to a pot of beans or soup during cooking or sprinkle kelp granules over your salads or add to hot dishes just like you would use salt and make a nori wrap.

#18 BE KIND TO YOUR ADDRENALS

  Your adrenals and your thyroid have a strange relationship. They contradict each other all the time. They have a topsy-turvy relationship in which when one goes up, the other goes down. If you are always exhausted you might want to start addressing your adrenals. You can find more information on this topic in my latest book. Hypothyroidism: The Beginners Guide: How to stop surviving and start thriving.  In this book, I’ve written a few pages on 10 Things you can do to Give You Adrenals a Reboot.

#19 Start practicing YOGA

Yoga can stimulate and support the entire endocrine system and not over stress your adrenal gland which can raise your cortisol levels and add fat around your waist.

#20 UP Your Selenium and Zinc

Studies have shown that a severe zinc or selenium deficiencies can cause decreased thyroid hormone levels. Never take zinc on an empty stomach. Brazil nuts are high in both zinc and selenium. Selenium is a micro-nutrient and antioxidant contained in foods like shellfish, cold-water fish, nuts and seeds. The recommended daily intake of this essential mineral is only 70 micrograms and extreme selenium-deficiency is rare, minor to moderate cases are not unheard of. Over time, selenium-deficiency can lead to Hashimoto’s disease which causes the immune system to attack the thyroid. Signs to look for include unexplained muscle and joint pain, very dry or brittle hair, and an abundance of white spots on the fingernails.

 #21 avoid all sources of fluoride

 As I’ve mentioned in every one of my books and on blog website. Fluoride suppresses the thyroid and can be your leading cause of hypothyroidism. We all are unique Start drinking spring water, avoid soft drinks, use fluoride-free toothpaste, use a shower filter, and throw away non-stick cookware. Keep in mind that coffee and tea naturally contain fluoride.

#22 get out in the Sun!

The sun is a natural vitamin D and it makes you feel good.

#22 drink a Green smoothie daily

 This will give you a daily boost in your fiber plus cut out some calories.  In this book, you will find a few Hypothyroidism Fighting Smoothie recipes. The key is to make something that you will enjoy.

#23 reduce your inflammation

 Cut out foods like gluten, sugar, refined carbs, fake foods, soy, vegetable oils and add in fresh whole fruits, healthy fats and fiber.

#23 reduce your stress

 Stress plays a major role in your health. Cortisol (the stress hormone) affects every single one of you hormones and it add fat around your mid-section. You can start meditating, yoga, Epsom salt baths, massages and reading.

#24 Metal detox

We are unwillingly exposed to 23 environmental metals considered “heavy metals” such as lead, mercury, aluminum and arsenic. Long-term exposure may lead to physical, muscular, and neurological degenerative processes that mimic Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and Multiple Sclerosis. Common side effects of a heavy metal toxicity are chronic fatigue, autoimmune disease (which can lead to hypothyroidism), Neurological disorders, Brain Fog, Depression, Bi-polar and Anxiety, Dementia and Insomnia. Start eating foods that are rich in Vitamin C, add detoxing cilantro and parsley to your morning smoothies, garlic and onions will give your liver an extra boost, make sure your drinking plenty of water and flaxseed or chia seeds give your colon that extra boost of fiber along with omega 3 to help things pass through. 

#25 Aspartame: avoid Fake sugars

The king of artificial sweeteners was allowed to the market in 1981 when the U.S. Commissioner of Food and Drugs, Arthur Hull Hayes, overruled FDA panel suggestions, as well as consumer concerns.  Aspartame is a neurotoxin that interacts with natural organisms, as well as synthetic medications, producing a wide range of proven disorders and syndromes.  So who installed this commissioner that would rule against scientists and the public?  Donald Rumsfeld, CEO of G.D. Searle; the maker of Aspartame.  Rumsfeld was on Reagan’s transition team, and the day after Reagan took office he appointed the new FDA Commissioner in order to “call in his markers” with one of the most egregious cases of profit-over-safety ever recorded.  Aspartame is now nearly ubiquitous, moving beyond sugarless products and into general foods, beverages, pharmaceuticals, and even products for children.  It recently has been renamed to the more pleasant sounding AminoSweet.

#26 Move those lymph Nodes!

Rebounding boosts lymphatic system and improves your immune functioning by circulating oxygen throughout your body to increase energy.  The motion starts to stimulate all internal organs, moves the cerebral-spinal fluid, it does wonders for the intestines and from the G-force it gets your cells moving.

#27 Morning Ritual

The 1st thing you can do in the morning is start your day with warm lemon water with your thyroid medication. Lemons are loaded with healthy benefits, and particularly, they’re a great vitamin C food source. One cup of fresh lemon juice provides 187 percent of your daily recommended serving of vitamin C — take that, oranges! Lemon juice also offers up a healthy serving of potassium, magnesium and copper.

It Aids in digestion and detoxification. It tricks the liver into producing bile, which helps keep food moving through your body and gastrointestinal tract smoothly. Lemon water also helps relieve indigestion or ease an upset stomach.

You need to wait 1 hour before you eat and wait 4 hours before you take any other vitamin supplements because it can interfere with the absorption of your medication. Now, as far as taking any other prescribed medications. You have to speak with your medical doctor about that.

    If you want to drink coffee wait 1 hour after you take your medication because it can also interfere with the absorption of your thyroid medication.

    Eat a breakfast! You should be eating 1 hour after you’ve taken your thyroid. A wholeness nutritious breakfast like gluten free oatmeal, with Ceylon cinnamon, almond milk & organic coconut oil.

Why Are My Eyebrows Becoming Thinner—and What to Do About It

Eyebrows are one of women’s most prominent facial features because of the many functions they perform. They help accentuate the eyes, shape the face, and play a powerful role in communication. 

As we get older, gray hairs and crow’s feet aren’t the only thing we have to look forward to . Our eye brows can show signs of aging, too.

This seems to happened so gradual that you barely even notice it happening. Skimpy eyes brows seem make us look older that what we are and our faces look undefined and tired.

I’ve never been blessed with thick full eyebrows.  But in the last few years around the age of 40, I noticed them thinning and by age 48 they were practically non-existent. So, I decided to go on a quest to research why and possible solutions.

During my research I found out there are many reasons that could possibly play a part. For example abrupt hormone changes like postpartum and menopause. Another common one is it a symptom of a thyroid deficiency. Nutritional deficiencies can cause sparse brows. Genetics may also dictate the age you’ll start to notice a change to your brows.

A 2011 study on Science Direct, a platform for peer-reviewed research, found that a lack of vitamin A can hinder the production of sebum, which is essential for moisturizing hair and promoting its growth.

Overgrooming could also make all of these worse. “We also see thinning eyebrows, especially in women, as a result of too much tweezing or waxing earlier in life. If the hair follicles suffer trauma and die out as a result, a permanent thinning of the eyebrows can occur,” says New York City–based board-certified dermatologist Judith Hellman, M.D.

So, what is going on? Just as the hair follicles on your scalp grow thinner and finer hair as you get older, so too, can the follicles above your eyes, said dermatologist Dr Sejal Shah, a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology

Actually, eyebrow hair loss is a fairly common occurrence. It can be due to any number of reasons, ranging from hormonal changes or nutritional deficiencies to an infection, skin condition, stress, or even an overactive immune system that’s attacking the hair follicles. This type of hair loss has a number of different possible treatments, depending on the cause.

Getting to the Source of Eyebrow Hair Loss

Specific causes for eyebrow hair loss include:

  • Alopecia areata – The same autoimmune disease that is oftentimes responsible for scalp hair loss can also affect your eyebrows. In this case, your immune system mistakenly targets and attacks your eyebrow follicles, thereby slowing or halting eyebrow hair production.
  • Nutritional deficiencies – Your body requires a healthy balance of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Since some of these nutrients sustain and influence hair growth, a lack in any of them could result in hair loss. For example, a deficiency of vitamins C, E, B-12, D, iron, cysteine, and/or omega-3 fatty acids could trigger hair loss, including in the eyebrows.
  • Dermatitis – Skin conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis, can interfere with proper hair growth. Any type of dermatitis can block hair from growing hair follicles normally.
  • Thyroid disease – The thyroid gland, located in the front of the neck, produces hormones that regulate your metabolism. When it produces too much or too little of a hormone, your body’s normal processes – including hair growth – can be disrupted.
  • Excessive stress or anxiety – Psychological issues are known to contribute to eyebrow hair loss. If you have recently experienced a traumatic event or major lifestyle change, this may be the root cause.
  • Telogen effluvium (TE) – This refers to a temporary, but dramatic, loss of hair that happens when your normal hair growth cycle is interrupted. This can be due to stress, changes in your diet, medications, hormonal or other changes in your body chemistry.
  • Overplucking – This practice creates minor trauma to the follicle, which can result in the hair no longer growing in that spot.
  • Scar tissue – can be the result of trauma, burns (chemical or thermal) and skin conditions typically involving problems with the immune system attacking the body’s own tissues.
  • Aging – Generally starting in our 40s, as levels of estrogen in women and testosterone in men dwindle, both genders may start to experience thinning of hair on the scalp and in the eyebrows.
  • Chemotherapy – Chemo is specifically designed to affect all rapidly dividing cells, including hair follicles. Therefore, chemotherapy can stifle hair production in the brows.

So what’s a 40+ women to do about disappearing eyebrow dilemma? How can she bring her face back to life?

  There are certainly a ton of products on the market and online tutorials.

1. Take care when waxing, plucking, and threading.

“The trauma inflicted on hair follicles during waxing, tweezing, and threading can lead to permanent follicular damage,” explains Dr. Umar. “Women who grew up in the height of the ’90s overplucked, pencil-thin brow trend have begun to notice the difficulty in growing thicker eyebrows after years of this habit.”

2. Fake fuller brows with finesse.

“The biggest mistake I see is people being too heavy handed with their eyebrow products,” says Megan Studabaker, a registered nurse and owner of Finespun Brow Design in Scottsdale, Arizona. “I recommend applying products in hair-like strokes, versus just filling in with powder because it often gets smeared and messy which isn’t achieving the polished look you are going for.”

She recommends using a tinted eyebrow gel as a finishing step. “It’s relatively foolproof and comes in a tube like mascara,” Studabaker says. “Brush your hairs into shape to keep them in place and you can achieve more definition by choosing a gel with a tint.”

3. Try microblading for a more permanent solution.

Microblading is a semipermanent way to fill in brows that looks more natural than permanent makeup or tattooing. “Microblading differs from tattooing and the traditional form of permanent makeup in that it is typically done by hand versus a machine and doesn’t go as deep into the skin,” explains Studabaker. “In the past, tattooing and traditional permanent makeup usually resulted in a solid line and the color could change significantly with time.”

The process takes about two hours to complete, but you’ll need to go in for a touch up about once a year after the initial appointment (and possibly a second follow-up). Microblading costs between $500 and $1,000, and the results should last for one to three years. Your natural brow hair will continue to grow, but you likely won’t need to get waxed as often. “Most people find their regular maintenance decreased because they have the shape they want after microblading,” Studabaker says.

I don’t know where to start

Hang in there. This wont happen overnight.

I know, there is so much information overload that most people are confused as to where to start.  You can start by taking ownership of your health. I wanted you to understand or get a idea of how everything has a part to play in your body. I am on a  path to help you, lead you and inform you through this terrible illness. Being diagnosed with hypothyroidism isn’t just here take this pill and it will fix your issues. Hypothyroidism has a root cause. Once you start addressing the root of your problems then your body can start healing itself. Your body is an awesome design but there is a complex balance between everything. It’s a domino affect. If you have something in your body that is overworked  it will cause a major shift in your body. Don’t worry the good news is it can be healed.

Sometimes we have to do a little pruning of the branches, in order for the tree to be healthy again. A number of things can be the reason why you have hormonal imbalances, food intolerances, thyroid issues, adrenal fatigue, weight gain, insomnia, personality changes, leaky gut, depression, an autoimmune disorder, chronic pain, no metabolism and low sex drive, bloating, anxiety, menstrual problems and infertility. It starts with becoming aware and how your health can be influenced by many different circumstances.
How would you define good health? Logically one would define good health as absence of a disease or following some sort of ground rules that avoid developing a disease. This book can help you begin to understand what a Keto Autoimmune protocol is and start guiding you in the redevelopment and healing of your body. You will begin to understand how to fix your gut, strengthen your immunity and fight inflammation with an autoimmune approach. The Keto AIP removes all the common inflammatory food triggers that stimulate a possible autoimmune reaction in the body. Along with helping to reset those adrenals, boosting that energy and doing a little ass kicking to those hormones that have decided to act like a wild college student and pull an all-nighter the day before final exams.
Your health doesn’t have to be a difficult situation but a positive realization that things need to change. This new lifestyle change has many parts to it and I hope you will embrace not only the physical but the spiritual awakening. Common food intolerances that are known to trigger inflammation are eliminated in this Keto AIP protocol are Nightshades, Eggs, Grains (gluten), Dairy, Legumes, Corn, Soy, Dairy and lectins.

20 Homemade DIY Cleaning Product Alternative’s That Every Home Needs (Natural + Toxin Free)

Cleaning Products Have a Damaging Impact on Women’s Health

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) suggests that:

Cleaning products are necessary for maintaining attractive and healthful conditions in the home and workplace. In addition to the obvious aesthetic benefits of cleaning, the removal of dust, allergens, and infectious agents is crucial to maintaining a healthful indoor environment.

The real reality is we are damaging our DNA and we are changing our genetic makeup for future generations. There was a study a few years back that said the umbilical cord of an average American baby has over 200 known chemicals in it. Eighty percent of the common chemicals that are used daily in this country, we know almost nothing about. Our children are being born toxic and we have no idea if these toxins are already doing some sort of damage their brains, their immune system, their reproductive system, and any other developing organs. Are we unknowingly setting ourselves up for failure in the womb, even before birth?

Scientists and researchers are concerned that many of these chemicals may be carcinogenic or wreak havoc with our hormones, our body’s regulating system. But the impact of these chemicals may be most severe on the developing brain, Perera said.
Brain development is the “most complete and most rapid during the first nine months, prenatally,” she said. During that time, neural connections and pathways are being developed.
“Any interference by a physical stress like a toxic chemical or other stressor can disrupt this natural progression that is so very delicate and complex,” explained Perera.
Though the group hopes to come up with regulatory recommendations to reduce this toxic burden, there are some simple things that individuals can do to reduce their exposure.
 
Children exposed to higher levels of these pesticides have been found to have higher rates of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.
 
Most products have a  warning label that is typed in bold “Keep Out of Reach of Children”.  As consumers, we believe that if our children don’t ingest these products they will not be harmed by them. This can be far from the truth. Think about other common methods of exposure are through the skin and our respiratory tract. WE are along with our children are often in contact with the chemical residues housecleaning products do leave behind, by crawling, lying and sitting on the freshly cleaned floor.
 
 

Scientists at Norway’s University of Bergen tracked 6,000 people, with an average age of 34 at the time of enrollment in the study, who used the cleaning products over a period of two decades, according to the research published in the American Thoracic Society’s American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.

They found that lung function decline in women who regularly used the products, such as those who worked as cleaners, was equivalent over the period to those with a 20-cigarette daily smoking habit.

Everyday chemicals carry toxic burden

These chemicals can chemicals bind together.
Exposure to phthalates has been associated with lower IQ levels.
These chemicals can also be found in the shampoos, conditioners, body sprays, hair sprays, perfumes, make up, cleaning supplies, colognes, soap and nail polish that we use.
 
The results follow a study by French scientists in September 2017 that found nurses who used disinfectants to clean surfaces at least once a week had a 24 percent to 32 percent increased risk of developing lung disease.
 
 Scientists and researchers are concerned that many of these chemicals may be carcinogenic or wreak havoc with our hormones, our body’s regulating system.
 
It’s not enough to be aware of all the outdoor chemicals that we are exposed to everyday but inside our homes we can have more power and control. We have to be more aware about using chemical cleaners, paints, glues, body lotions, toothpastes, underarm deodorants, hair products and pesticides. Instead start to begin to use products that don’t pollute our very own bodies. We must read labels, make our own products and do our own research. I can’t stress this enough. We must take a stand for our health. Stop using commercial products that are laced with unknown and harmful body damaging products.
 
Did you know that products we use every day may contain toxic chemicals and has been linked to women’s health issues? They are hidden endocrine disruptors and are very tricky chemicals that play havoc on our bodies. “We are all routinely exposed to endocrine disruptors, and this has the potential to significantly harm the health of our youth,” said Renee Sharp, EWG’s director of research. “It’s important to do what we can to avoid them, but at the same time we can’t shop our way out of the problem. We need to have a real chemical policy reform.” The longer the length of ingredients on your food label means how much more unhealthy it is for you to consume. When an item contains a host of ingredients that most likely you cant even pronounce or remember to spell you can bet your lucky dollar that the natural nutrients are long gone. These highly processed frank n foods are very difficult for the body to break down and some of the chemicals will become stored in your body. Click on this link to see what you should avoid.
 

Pesticides, herbicides, GMOs in our food, fluoride and chlorine and trace pharmaceutical residue in the water supplies, methane, carbon monoxide and industrial pollutants in the air, and the toxic chemicals in our everyday household products.

No wonder our bodies are completely bombarded and overwhelmed with the constant exposed to toxic chemicals through the air that we breathe, the water we drink, the foods we eat, and the personal care products and cleaning products we use.

Every Cell in your body responds to the foods you eat, the products you put on your body to the house hold chemicals that you purchase for your home. All of these things have a direct impact on your hormones and in return your hormones have a direct impact on every major system in your body. Not to mention that our body is lacking certain nutrients that heavily influence the function of every cell in our body. 

For starters, the three essential categories into which most of the hazardous ingredients in household cleaning products fall are:
 
1.  Carcinogens– Carcinogens cause cancer and/or promote cancer’s growth.
2.  Endocrine disruptors – Endocrine disruptors mimic human hormones, confusing the body with false signals.  Exposure to endocrine disruptors can lead to numerous health concerns including reproductive, developmental, growth and behavior problems. Endocrine disruptors have been linked to reduced fertility, premature puberty, miscarriage, menstrual problems, challenged immune systems, abnormal prostate size, ADHD, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and certain cancers.
3.  Neurotoxins – Neurotoxins alter neurons, affecting brain activity, causing a range of problems from headaches to loss of intellect
 
TAKING CUES FROM PRODUCT LABELS
 
You may find it time-consuming to research all of the ingredients in the cleaning products under the kitchen sink, in your garage or even in the bathroom but trust me. It is worth the hassle.  Over all, product warning labels can be a useful first line of defense. These companies are required by law to include label warnings on their cleaning products if harmful ingredients are included. From safest to most dangerous, the warning signals are:
 
Signal Word
Toxicity if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through the skin*
Caution
One ounce to a pint may be harmful or fatal
Warning
One teaspoon to one ounce may be harmful or fatal
Danger
One taste to one teaspoon is fatal
 
You can reduce your exposure to them by eating organic foods, making your own cleaning chemicals and using alternative pest control methods.
 

What goes on your body, goes in your body?

Sometimes I want to shake people and say, “Wake Up”! You have the power to make a difference in your life. You’ve always had the power. People are using products on their body and in their homes and that are hormone disruptors. No one can force you to become more aware of what you put on your body and what you put in your body. What you eat is just as important as what you put on your body.   Adjusting your life, reading labels and catering to your specific health needs isn’t easy but it will benefit you in the long run. This is one of the smartest decisions that you can make. Not only will you start to look and feel better but think of the medical cost that you could be saving your future self.

 

Throughout my latest book, you will find useful, informative and easy to understand recipes for your mind, body and spirit. When I started writing this book, I wanted to introduce you to the idea of a cleaner less toxic world and for you to learn just how simply easy it is for you to start creating your own cleaning recipes throughout your home but this book has transformed into so much more than just a book full of all natural DIY recipes.

This book will enlighten you and help you have a deeper understanding of not only why you should be more aware but how to be more aware. AWARENESS HAS MAGIC.

Remove the cap and then add the Sal Suds and essential oils. Fill the remainder of the bottle with water until the bottle is almost full, making sure to leave room for the sprayer lid. Give it another shake to combine the mixture and spray on the area you want to clean.  Always use a clean cloth or sponge when cleaning.

Bathroom Mold disinfecting spray

You don’t have to grab bleach to get rid of mold in your bathroom. This 3 combo all natural mixture will do the trick.  I will spray the areas in my bathroom and leave it on for 10 minutes and wipe the moldy areas away. Vodka might be a little bit pricey but you won’t be breathing in toxic chemicals or having to worry about your skin absorbing a list of toxic chemicals.  Vinegar is naturally antimicrobial, tea tree is natural fungicide which can eliminate any mold or mildew problems and kills black mold spores! Don’t forget to label your spray bottle with a black permanent marker.

This homemade laundry detergent recipe not only keeps those harsh chemicals away but it’s also a cheaper, lasts longer and with all-natural ingredients, it’s a greener, healthier alternative to commercial chemically loaded products. There’s nothing more natural or better than natural products like vinegar, baking soda and essential oils.

 Homemade powder laundry soap

   3 tbsp. Baking Soda

    ½ cup Liquid Castile soap

5 cups of water, divided

Directions

    Bring 5 cups of water to a boil.

    Pour washing soda into a large glass bowl then slowly stir in 2 cups of boiling water until washing soda is completely dissolved. Don’t forget to label with a black permanent marker.

Homemade dryer sheets:

2 cup of vinegar

20 drops of your favorite essential oil scents.

Cut 10 pieces of fabric in wash cloths size squares.

1 glass container with a lid

Mix the vinegar and the essential oil scents in the glass container, fold your fabric and place in your jar. Give your jar a good shake and mix the solution all over your fabric.  There are two ways you can do this. 1. After you’ve already dried your clothes, turn your dryer on the no heat cycle and put a few of your dryer sheets in your dried load for about 10 minutes.  But 1st squeeze out excess liquid before you add them in the dryer the sheets should be damp not soaking wet. 2.  Remove a fabric sheet from the jar and squeeze so it is not dripping. Add a sheet to the dryer with wet laundry and dry as usual. Also, don’t be afraid to mix essential oils. Lavender, eucalyptus, lemon and rosemary are very refreshing scents when combined. My favorite homemade laundry scent combinations are:

    Zen Spa – 10 drops eucalyptus, 5 drops lavender

    Floral Dream – 8 drops ylang ylang, 8 drops jasmine

This fabric softener will keep your clothes fresh smelling for a long period of time.

 

You can also just place a wool dryer ball in your and it will naturally help soften and reduce static by bouncing and rubbing against the fabric as it dries.

 FABRIC SOFTENER RECIPE

 1 cup of hot water

 1.5 tsp of baking soda

 3.5 cups apple cedar vinegar

 20 drops of essential oil (your choice).

Large plastic bottle

Place the hot water in the bottle. Next add the apple cedar vinegar and the baking soda. Don’t worry its normal for the chemical reaction to create bubbles. After bubbles go away, add the essential oils. Place the lid on it and give it a good shake. Store it on a dark, cool place. You can use also create a large batch and use this natural softener by adding it in washing machine or soaking your clothes in it. This fabric softener will keep your clothes fresh smelling for a long period of time. Don’t forget to label with a black permanent marker.

 

Honey Vanilla Bubble Bath Recipe

    1/2 cup jojoba, almond, or olive oil

    1/4 cup local, raw or Manuka honey

    1/2 cup Dr. Bonners Liquid Castile Soap

     3 tablespoons of baking soda

   3 tablespoons of Epsom salt

    1 egg white

    1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl or Mason jar and then pour 1/4 to 1/2 cup under running water. This bubble bath doesn’t have any preservatives and it contains egg whites therefore it has a short lifespan. I keep this in my fridge and use it within a week. The egg white is the key to making your bathwater frothy and bubbly.

DIY Liquid Hand Soap

    1/2 cup Dr. Bronners Liquid Castile Soap

    1/2 cup distilled water

    1 TB vitamin E oil (optional)

    1 TB sweet almond oil or olive oil or jojoba oil (optional)

    5 drops lemon essential oil

    5 drops lavender essential oil

    In a Mason jar or recycled soap dispenser, add the water first (to prevent bubbles) then the liquid castile soap, followed by the oils. Shake the ingredients together.

    Shake the soap dispenser before using, then squirt a small amount on your hands as needed, rinsing with water.

 

Natural Citrus Antibacterial Liquid Hand Soap

    1/2 cup Dr. Bonners Liquid Castile Soap

    1/2 cup distilled water

    1 TB vitamin E oil

    1 TB sweet almond oil, apricot kernel oil, olive oil or jojoba oil

    5 drops lemon essential oil

    5 drops On Guard essential oil

    In a Mason jar or recycled soap dispenser, add the water first (to prevent bubbles) then the liquid castile soap, followed by the oils. Shake the ingredients together.

    Shake the soap dispenser before using, then squirt a small amount on your hands as needed, rinsing with water.

Homemade Shaving Cream

    1 cup shea butter

    1 cup virgin coconut oil

     3 Tablespoons vitamin E oil

    3 Tablespoons sweet almond oil or olive oil or jojoba oil

     3 Tablespoons Dr. Bonners Liquid Castile Soap

     30 drops of lavender essential oil (optional)

     30 drops of lemon essential oil (optional)

I like to use an electric mixer, mixing all ingredients until stiff peaks are formed (approximately 2-3 minutes). Store in a mason jar with a sealable lid.

Will Taking Hypothyroidism Medication Help With Weight Loss?

Image result for INCREASE my metabolism

Decreased thyroid function, or hypothyroidism, is commonly associated with weight gain. But contrary to popular belief, effective treatment with Hypothyroidism medications that are trying to restore normal thyroid hormone levels is not associated with clinically significant weight loss in most people.

Thyroid and Your Weight

Your thyroid gland is in charge of sending hormones into the bloodstream that help keep your metabolism in check. When your body doesn’t make enough of these hormones, that process will slow down.

This also puts the brakes on other body functions. You might feel cold, tired, or sluggish.

The truth is only about 10% of your total weight gain is likely due retaining water because of hypothyroidism.

“People with hypothyroidism often have gained quite a bit of weight before their diagnosis,” says nutrition coach Cheryl Harris, RD. “They may experience fatigue, and that makes it harder to have the energy to eat well and exercise regularly.”

But the bigger question is this:

How can I be gaining weight on a medication that is supposed to INCREASE my metabolism?

How can that be?

Well, the truth is that Levothyroxine doesn’t necessarily increase your metabolism… at least not in everyone.

In this post I’m going to show you exactly why Levothyroxine can cause weight gain and what you can do about it:

T4 to T3 Conversion Matters… A lot

Before we talk about how Levothyroxine and Synthroid can cause weight gain we need to talk about some basic thyroid physiology so it all makes sense.

Your thyroid, under the influence of TSH (if working properly), pumps out the hormone T4.

What you need to understand is that T4 is an inactive hormone. By itself it doesn’t do anything for your body except act as a reservoir for T3.

In order for thyroid hormone to be active in your body it MUST be converted to the active hormone T3.

T3 is the hormone that enters into your cells and actually activates biochemical processes.

The problem is that T4 doesn’t always convert to T3.

You see:

Your body has the option of converting T4 to reverse T3 as well, and reverse T3 is a thyroid blocking metabolite.

The more reverse T3 in your blood stream the less you can rely on normal thyroid blood tests to give you any actionable information.

So what causes your body to turn T4 into the inactive reverse T3?

Levothyroxine and Synthroid are both T4 only Medications!

So here is the primary problem:
Levothyroxine and Synthroid are both T4 only medications.

Most Doctors will prescribe you T4 medication under the assumption that your body will have no problem converting T4 into T3.

And in a perfect world, a world without stress, inflammation or other hormonal imbalances – it would.

But that’s not the world we live in…

Nowadays it’s VERY uncommon if someone has their stress managed, has no other hormonal imbalances and their adrenals are functioning just fine.

In states such as these your body will turn T4 into reverse T3 as a way to “put on the brakes” and slow down your metabolism and cause symptoms of hypothyroidism.

How Levothyroxine Causes weight gain

So how does this all relate to Levothyroxine and weight gain?

We can look at some studies to help us understand:

Take for instance this study.

It showed that patients who take Levothyroxine still have an abnormally low metabolism even with a “normal” TSH.

Levothyroxine and metabolism
This means that TSH as a marker for managing your thyroid medications (in certain people) is inaccurate!

Patients fall into this trap.

They think that because their labs and TSH have somehow improved they are suddenly “better”.

(Note: You can find out how you should be monitoring your body when you take thyroid medication to make sure it is actually working below.)

What’s more:

A study showed that suppressing the TSH did NOT result in adverse side effects.

T4 suppressive therapy no adverse side effects
One of the main reasons Doctors are afraid to prescribe T3 medications is because they are concerned that the low TSH will result in damage to the body over time.

What it really results in is a poor quality of life, and increased incidence of depression.

Here is another very interesting study that compared people taking Natural Dessicated Thyroid to those taking Levothyroxine:

NDT vs levothyroxine
This study showed that patients taking Natural Dessicated Thyroid (Like armour thyroid, naturethroid and westhroid) experienced more weight loss and HALF of the people in the study said that they preferred taking NDT over levothyroxine.

NDT causes more weight loss than levothyroxine
Moral of the story?

Most patients not only prefer to take Natural dessicated thyroid (medication that includes T3 hormone) but this medication also results in more weight loss and an improved quality of life.

One of the biggest problems with T4 only medication is that your body may NOT be converting it to the T3 hormone.

In many patients your body may actually convert it to reverse T3 thereby slowing your metabolism, and actually making you WORSE.

Slowing your metabolism = weight gain.

But here is another important note:

Natural Dessicated Thyroid still contains T4 (in fact the majority is still T4).

That means that sometimes NDT can actually make hypothyroid symptoms worse as well. People with this problem need pure T3 medications like Liothyronine.

So what can you do to prevent this?

What to do if you think Levothyroxine is Causing Weight Gain

Luckily there are some things you can do to find out if you are being under treated with your medication or to see if levothyroxine is not the right medication for you.

1. Check your Basal Body Temperature Each Morning

Checking your basal body temperature is a quick and easy way to estimate your basal metabolic rate.

Your basal metabolic rate is basically how many calories you are burning on a daily basis.

In under treated thyroid patients this will obviously be lower.

How to check your basal body temperature:

Each morning, as soon as you wake up, write down your morning temperature. I recommend using an axillary thermometer (but you can also use an oral thermometer). The goal here is consistency.
Plot your morning body temperature and watch for patterns. Your body temperature should be > 97.8. Period. Anything less than this indicates that your metabolism may be slowed. *Note that medications may interfere with the reliability with this test (medications like beta blockers and narcotics).

Basal body temperature when hypothyroid
Notice the image above which shows what an untreated hypothyroid patient looks like and notice how the graph becomes much more stable after armour thyroid kicks in.

2. Check your Resting Pulse or Resting Heart Rate

I also suggest that you check your resting pulse rate.

Hypothyroid states are well known to cause a slow heart rate or low pulse.

If you have hypothyroidism I recommend buying a wearable fitness device to monitor your pulse, how well you sleep and how active you are throughout the day.

This data that you collect can help your doctor see & adjust the thyroid dosage.

Combining basal body temperature with resting heart rate is a very powerful combination and can help you determine how well you are being treated.

Your resting pulse should generally be > 50-60 at night while you sleep, unless you are a WELL conditioned athlete. A resting heart rate lower than that indicates an issue (though doesn’t necessarily mean it is thyroid related).

If you are on medications like a beta blocker or narcotics it may interfere with your pulse rate/heart rate.

3. Check a Complete Thyroid Panel

Finally, in addition to the other steps above I always recommend a full and complete thyroid panel.

That means the following tests:

TSH
Free T3
Free T4
Reverse T3
Thyroid Antibodies
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin

Combine these tests with resting heart rate and basal body temperature and now you are practicing good medicine!

Finally Losing Weight with Hypothyroidism

If after checking your body temperature, pulse and thyroid lab tests you find that your tests fall outside of the normal range then it’s time to make some changes!

The First Step

The first step to fixing your problem with levothyroxine is to try and switch medications.

I recommend that you find a Doctor who is willing to work with you and is willing to prescribe medications that contain T3.

These medications include: Natural Dessicated Thyroid (Armour thyroid, Westhroid, Naturethroid, etc.) and/or Cytomel.

If you are working with an Endocrinologist you may have more luck in asking them to add Liothyronine or Cytomel to your regimen.

Even adding 5-10mcg of Liothyronine can be enough for some people (though not the majority).

Whenever possible I do recommend finding a Doctor that specializes in Functional Medicine.

If changing medication is not an option for you then you can check out this article that has TONS of tips and tricks to help you lose weight with Hashimoto’s and Hypothyroidism.

Alternatives if your Doctor won’t work with you

There are several things YOU can do to optimize your thyroid function even if your Doctor won’t work with you.

Start Supporting my Adrenal Glands

Your adrenals produce over 50 hormones that tell almost every bodily function what they need to be doing. These hormones affect every function, organ and tissue in the body. Eating refined foods and sugars will cause a spike in your blood sugar levels, which in return cause the body to release insulin and as a result the adrenal glands will release more cortisol. When your adrenal glands are compromised this puts your body in a catabolic state. Which means your body is breaking down. Since your thyroid glands controls the metabolic activity of the body, it will attempt to slow down the catabolic state by slowing down your metabolism. Many of the foods that I had been eating blocked nutrients from being absorbed such as whole grain bread, beans and tofu/soy products. These foods also created inflammation in my digestive tract. When there is inflammation in the digestive system undigested proteins leak into the blood stream creating a heightened immune reaction that often exacerbates thyroid issues. I had to focus more on eating the most nutrient dense foods possible and find my trigger food sensitivities. lastly, eliminate all processed food, high carbohydrates, gluten, corn, soy and sugar, plan meals around protein and healthy fats then load up my plate with vegetables.

I had to start eating  nutrient-dense foods that were  easy to digest and have healing qualities such as

  • Coconut
  • homemade bone broth
  • grass fed meats
  • pastured meats
  • wild game
  • pastured organ meats
  • natural fats such as coconut oil
  • grass fed butter/ghee
  • full fat grass fed dairy
  • mineral rich Himalayan sea salt
  • wild fish
  • Olives
  • Avocado
  • Cruciferous vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, etc.) Cooked…. (Limit 2x week)
  • Fatty fish (e.g., wild-caught salmon)
  • Organic hormone free Chicken and turkey
  • Seeds, such as raw pumpkinchia seeds and flax seeds
  • Kelp and seaweed
  • Celtic or Himalayan sea salt
  • fermented foods
  • leafy greens
  • Nitrate free bacon
  • Nuts, such as walnuts and almonds
  • Coconut Flour, Almond Flour , hemp seeds and Chia seeds
  • ghee
  • bone broth

3. Add in moderate Exercise

High intensity exercise is can do more harm than good.

4.Reduce your inflammation

Chronic inflammation can spread and have more harmful effects than just one area in your body. Your body can experience things like higher blood pressure , allergies, create autoimmune issues, experience joint pain, cause heart problems, harmful swelling, bone loss, it can lower your iron levels and it just have a negative impact on your entire well-being. Did you know that chronic inflammation can also raise your reverse T3, which means this might be the reason why your hypothyroidism was created in the 1st place. We must get the inflammation under control. Cut out foods like gluten, sugar, refined carbs, fake foods, soy, and vegetable oils and add in fresh whole fruits, healthy fats and fiber. Start creating your own body lotions and cleaning supplies.

5. Balance Insulin and Leptin levels

Leptin and Insulin resistance will also cause your body to turn T4 into reverse T3.

In addition high levels of Leptin are responsible for reducing metabolism and increasing appetite.

I want to hear from you

Are you taking Levothyroxine?

Have you found it impossible to lose weight?

How many of you have successfully lost weight by switching medications?

What happened when I Stopped Trying to Lose Weight with Hashimoto’s and Hypothyroidism

If extra weight is the only symptom left after thyroid medication brings your hormone levels back to normal, hypothyroidism probably isn’t directly to blame for it.

I don’t know where to start.”

Hang in there. This wont happen overnight.

I know, there is so much information overload that most people are confused as to where to start.  You can start by taking ownership of your health. I wanted you to understand or get a idea of how everything has a part to play in your body. I am on a  path to help you, lead you and inform you through this terrible illness. Being diagnosed with hypothyroidism isn’t just here take this pill and it will fix your issues. Hypothyroidism has a root cause. Once you start addressing the root of your problems then your body can start healing itself. Your body is an awesome design but there is a complex balance between everything. It’s a domino affect. If you have something in your body that is overworked  it will cause a major shift in your body. Don’t worry the good news is it can be healed.

Sometimes we have to do a little pruning of the branches, in order for the tree to be healthy again. A number of things can be the reason why you have hormonal imbalances, food intolerances, thyroid issues, adrenal fatigue, weight gain, insomnia, personality changes, leaky gut, depression, an autoimmune disorder, chronic pain, no metabolism and low sex drive, bloating, anxiety, menstrual problems and infertility. It starts with becoming aware and how your health can be influenced by many different circumstances.
How would you define good health? Logically one would define good health as absence of a disease or following some sort of ground rules that avoid developing a disease. This book can help you begin to understand what a Keto Autoimmune protocol is and start guiding you in the redevelopment and healing of your body. You will begin to understand how to fix your gut, strengthen your immunity and fight inflammation with an autoimmune approach. The Keto AIP removes all the common inflammatory food triggers that stimulate a possible autoimmune reaction in the body. Along with helping to reset those adrenals, boosting that energy and doing a little ass kicking to those hormones that have decided to act like a wild college student and pull an all-nighter the day before final exams.
Your health doesn’t have to be a difficult situation but a positive realization that things need to change. This new lifestyle change has many parts to it and I hope you will embrace not only the physical but the spiritual awakening. Common food intolerances that are known to trigger inflammation are eliminated in this Keto AIP protocol are Nightshades, Eggs, Grains (gluten), Dairy, Legumes, Corn, Soy, Dairy and lectins.

How the Food Pyramid Ties to Capitalism!

Looking at the last few decades; Humanity is on the eve of a great change. Humankind has had fantastic achievements that we’ve brought under our control. For instance, famine, contagious diseases, sanitation, Hygiene, antibiotics, and the creation of other Antimicrobial Medicines. The 1st time in history humans are dying from the products they have created to consume and use along with being slowly poisoned for profit. At the same time, we are destroying more ecosystems and animals into extinction. This new power that we have is creating a pathway to transform us into our very own extinction. It seems that humans are undermining their very own existence. This greed is also creating alarming gene mutations and in the near, future we may not even be able to recognize a true human genome. There is enormous power within our government, religion, the industry, the media, and the 1% elite idealists in our world. Yes, the scientists and researchers are creating but the reality is the money behind them is paving the way. The funding behind the research isn’t always truthful and the data has been swayed to benefit the funding party. In this book, I have done an intensive job of investigative work where you will learn the current profit environment in the many aspects of the American healthcare industry, the Food Industry, and the Chemical industry. This is not only harmful to us but for future generations to come. You will also learn how Americans Are Deliberately Being Poisoned for Profit and see the Price Tag Stapled to our ears. We are just disposable pawns in their game of chess.

It is criminal and dare I say genocide what the food industry is doing to us. The FDA sits backs and allows this to happen.  Our bodies are now a chemical dumping ground for the food industry and we need to wake up! These chemicals mimic our very own hormones and start to rearrange our bodies ‘ chemistry.  We are not asking enough questions and not demanding change therefore, we are allowing our very own toxic environment to be created, both external and internal, which none of us will be able to escape. 

With all of Monsanto’s biochemical wizardry, one would think that they could find another way to create pesticides besides dumping estrogen-mimicking carcinogens onto the world’s food supply. Next on their agenda is artificial meat and it may be the “meat of the future”, maybe the only meat?

The pure stupidity and lack of basic human compassion involved in all of this illness and moneymaking are astounding. It is very important to understand that we have ended up in this mess for many reasons. Some of these people do believe they are doing what is best for humanity then you have the ones who simply do not give a damn how they are ultimately destroying what it is to be human and you certainly should never underestimate how low these people will go to gain profit off our health dismay. Americans are just in one big petri dish that seems to be poisoned, and controlled like lab rats.

It is very frustrating when you have doctors and scientists who try to help their patients and the government bureaucracies, private and secretive foundations who do everything in their power to block the science. They are sabotaging us deliberately and the real research controlled.

Accidents seem created more intentionally to murder people who are speaking out where it looks like a plausibly deniable manner – it is just a standard operating procedure for the Our Military Intelligence complex. When you start speaking out and against what is happening you become the Enemy of the State.

The ones controlling the narrative will do anything to discredit, dismantle, and destroy anything or anyone who begins to stand in their way. There are higher powers that are controlling the narrative and they are brainwashing all of us. This whole thing seems a bit sick and twisted. These people need to own and control every aspect of our lives. Anything that goes into your body or on your body they want to control.  Every thought, every breath, every bite of fake food, medication, vaccine, environmental chemicals, household chemicals, and fluoridated water. They have pulled the wool over our eyes to blind us from the truth. We have been guinea pigs for the entire industry far too long. Our fabric of what it means to be human appears torn at the core.

Our society systematically learned social conditioning while passively adjusting to indoctrination that they seem too randomly if ever think out of the box.

Congress, large corporations that donate funding, the power elite, insurance companies, big pharma, and our lobbyist all play a major part.  We are in a baseball game, where we the American people are in the last inning of the World Series, and we are up one run but all of their bases loaded with the other team. The American people are like the pitcher on the mound. We are stuck in classic doubt. We seem to be saying to ourselves,” Can I make this Pitch?” 

 Due to outrageous political influences on medicine and government policy, the vast majority of patients will not be able to receive the correct diagnoses. Correct diagnosis is vital in obtaining the correct treatment too.

Marketing, misconceptions, miss-information, “buying doctors”, outright lies and even conspiracy by pharmaceutical companies throughout the world have led to the unsuspecting public taking billions of pills that do not help us and may even harm us.

High blood pressure, high cholesterol, premenstrual syndrome, ADD/ADHD, pre-diabetes, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, hormone replacement, and other “diseases” are really “symptoms, not diseases.” So how did they get to be diseases and produce billions of dollars in drug sales to treat them?

How does that happen? Doctors, medical schools, clinical journals, and even the FDA employees are all dependent on pharmaceutical company dollars and that leads to journal articles that are “ghost-written” by big pharma employees, sent to physicians who “assume” that they are true and disseminated by pharma reps whose considerable income and continued employment depend on convincing doctors to write more of their product.

Just in the last few hundred years what we call modern medication has become a reality for us. You see nutrition history came to life within the context of World Wars, Famines, Politics, and individuals dedicated to saving lives but the idea of nutritional theorizing began, like most everything, with the ancient Greeks. Hippocrates (ca. 460 BCE–370 BCE) is often credited with developing the theory of the four senses of humor—blood, yellow bile, black bile, and phlegm—and their influence on the body. Galen’s understanding of anatomy and medicine influenced primarily by Hippocrates’s theory of bodily humor in the second century CE, in which these teachings lasted for centuries. Most of us seem educated by certain facts from our doctors, scientists, pharmaceutical researchers, our government, and other organizations that have gathered and created data that presented to us throughout our lives to convince us that what we see is truthful.  

We all are going to die. There is no way to achieve immortality. However, if you take effort to improve your health by eating clean food, drinking clean water, also by doing detox cleansing to remove the many thousands of toxins we are exposed to in our modern society then you will be able to optimize your health and be more resistant to any kind of disease.  Our body has the ability to heal any attack but what is missing from the narrative is we have to actually take care of our body. We cannot continually put poison in our body and think it will be ok. We must be aware of what we are eating. They say, “You are what you eat”. That is true in every aspect of the phrase.  We must stop putting these poisons in our body where we can recognize our full health potentials.  

After becoming critically ill with a “so-called” long-term condition. I healed myself with research, knowledge, and courage (induced by our toxic food, metal loaded toxic vaccines, a chemically enhanced water system, and current “health” care system practice); it has become even more important to me to spread the word about how dispensable we are to our capitalistic culture.

We should not be startled when we see a decline in our health because it is completely predictable with all the manipulations with viruses being made to our DNA. Besides the fake foods, toxic medications, and the poisons that are in our environment along with the crap we slather on our body.   

We can always place the blame of our demise at the feet of those who are guilty but somewhere, somehow we must take the responsibility.  Sure, we trusted those who were supposed to be trusted. The deep fake state establishment cares zero about the well-being of the American people. We are just animals with price tags stapled to our ears. You can be the smartest person in the room but still, people will not listen. Humans are undermining their very own existence.

Everyone is walking around has a dollar amount attached to them. Humans have been for years blindly walking around with an invisible bar code printed across their forehead with a price tag stapled to their ear like a herd of cattle. The amount is completely up to that person. Are they sick? Are they healthy? Do they have a disorder, disease, condition, or syndrome? How much medication do they consume? How many vaccines will they allow to inject into their body? How many times will they need to visit a doctor? How many procedures will they need? What can we get out of this “animal”? How much in taxes can we tax this person? The more services you need the higher the value of your dollar amount becomes.   

There is enormous power within our government, religion, politicians, corporations, the media, and the 1% elite idealists in our world.

Our ‘trusted’ watchdog agencies, both non-profit and government, are secretly “in bed” with these big companies.  Accepting money in return for their silence about the dangers of processed fake foods, toxic vaccines, pharmaceutical medications, toxic-tainted tap water, and chemical trails raining from above, Persistent organic pollutants (POPs), corporations poisoning our land, air, and water supply along with and pesticides on the food we consume.

We are in a war for the sake of all of humankind. Clean water, clean food, clean land, and clean air is something we should not have to demand. Forced vaccines, misrepresented disproportionately medications, media propaganda & endorsed environmental toxins is something from a fictional Hollywood movie but unfortunately, it is our current America. They create hate among us individually; it makes their job so much easier.  Divide and conquer. Blinded by fake narratives to keep our attention away from the atrocities currently done to the American people.

It is every living beings right on this planet to have a healthy planet but yet it is also humanity’s responsibility as one of the smartest species on the planet to not pillage, plunder and destroy this given privilege. Perhaps, evolution made a mistake allowing us humans to be the dominators over the animal kingdom.

They view us as disposable lab rats with a dollar sign attached to our ears like animals heading to slaughter.   

 Why do you believe what you believe? At some point in your life, you trusted the information that you learned and that person told you how to read the language that you speak, count numbers, and learn to spell. The things you learned help to form our perception of what we believed to be facts. You have listened to, read, and watched a ton of content from birth until now. Have you ever stopped and listened to the content that you are viewing? Motion pictures, television shows, social media, and the news are the world’s greatest forces for influencing the public’s thoughts and opinions. Think about a movie you seen like Jaws for example. Did that make you scared to go into the ocean? How about the movie Top Gun? Did you all of a sudden want to become a pilot and a freedom fighter for justice? Think about when you are listening to the radio while driving, on some sort of social media app, watching television, or watching a movie at the theaters; what are you listening too? One word. Programming. Since birth, we have been programmed by television shows, movies, music, games, and now social media. Our government has always controlled our content but we have never paid attention to it. Now, what if they did not have our best interests in mind. Would you change your views if you found out this to be true? The gatekeepers want to control us. Years of research has left a missing element in my quest for the truth.

This desire for the answers is the reason why I must continue to seek it out. This is why I have become an alchemist by heart and by nature. There is a means to teach, transform the health of others, and to show people how to prolong their life. 

If we do not find a balance between the conservation of nature and the flourishing of humans, there will not be a future on this earth for us. We have taken nature for granted and so arrogantly at that.  I have spent a lot of time making small changes in my life over the last few years to try to avoid chemicals that these large companies expose us to increase their profits. This book opened my eyes to so much more than what I had already researched on my own. I have listed many resources, books to read, and videos in this book for you to seek more education. Never take anyone’s word for granted.  You must find the truth yourself.  This book has been extensively researched and referenced.

I am not here to argue with an unbeliever or persuade anyone to agree with my hypothesis but the truth appears written not only by me but also by other people.  Many will have a difference of opinion but that does not mean we all will have a difference of principle. 

So, what happens when we become sick?

We need treatments, medications, and procedures. Which all of these add to that price tag stapled to our ears. That hidden barcode on our forehead.  

There once was a land where happiness, health & prosperity flourished. People lived with the earth. The earth flourished and so did the humans who lived on it.
