Spirtually Speaking

Image result for free pics of religionI am not usually not an ‘off the wall’ person, but this morning as I was reading my scriptures I was at a loss of what to read. To solve this dilemma I closed my eyes and just let my bible fall open where it may. It fell open to the Bible Dictionary. I use dictionaries a lot. What I was meant to read  stuck out to me ‘like a sore thumb,’ (I call it inspiration); it  was listed in the dictionary as the ‘Fall of Adam.’ I have spent most of my life trying to figure out where I came from, how I all got here and what was in store for me now that I am here, and where I will be going when the time comes to leave this earth.

Quoting from the King James Version of the Bible (and with my own comments interspersed) – I feel this is the beginning of helping me to understand the whole ‘mankind’ process. It even fits in with what I believe today about the body healing itself – Natural Healing.

Fall of Adam. “The process by which mankind became mortal on this earth. The event is recorded in Gen. 2, 3, and 4. The fall od Adam is one of the most important occurrences in the history of man. Before the fall, Adam and Eve had physical bodies”(like we look today with only one difference – read on) “but no blood.”  “There was no sin, no death, and no children among any of the earthly creations.” (Common sense would be, because without blood Adam and Eve were not mortal beings). However, it goes on to say: “With the eating of the “forbidden fruit,” Adam and Eve became mortal, sin entered, blood formed in their bodies, and death became a part of life. Adam became the “first flesh” upon the earth, meaning that he and Eve were the first to become mortals. After Adam fell. the whole creation fell and became mortal. Adam’s fall brought both physical and spiritual death into the world upon all mankind.” You ask, what is ‘spiritual death’. Spiritual death, as I understand it, is the ceasing of man being able to communicate face to face with GOD – or any of the higher beings. This all makes sense to me, but is sometimes confusing to others. It goes on the explain….

“The fall was no surprise to the Lord. It was a necessary step in the progress of man, and provisions for a Savior had been made even before the fall had occurred. Jesus Christ came to atone for the fall of Adam and also for man’s individual sins.”

As I see it, in my opinion – the fall was a blessing. Think about it. Should Adam and Eve not be honored? Are they not the first parents, in the flesh, of the earth?

The next topic in the dictionary was ‘Family.’  Adam and Eve were a ‘family’ and, that is another whole topic in and of itself and probably one that should be discussed, especially with all the turmoil going on in the world today. For me, when I read and hear about the devastation happening all over the world of crime and natural disasters – it brings me closer, in mind and thought, to my maker. How about you?

NOTE: If you haven’t read, heard, or don’t know – Adam and Eve, ate the FRUIT and VEGGIES that were already in the Garden of Eden. When cast out of the garden, their punishment (so to speak) was to till the earth and grow their own FRUIT and VEGGIES.

We are still growing our own today – or we wouldn’t have natural foods to eat. The growing of food process, however, has been altered by man’s addition of pesticides, etc. which are not good for man’s physical body. But then, God also is the creator of “freedom of choice”.

Apply this when you read my blogs. I recommend, I bring to light the unknown to many of you of things unusual or new. In the end it is up to you to make your own CHOICE

Supplement Facts – Magnesium

Image result for pics of magnesium

Magnesium can be more than one thing. Magnesium can be a silver-white light malleable ductile metallic element used in metallurgical and chemical processes, or, it can be called Magnesium carbonate – a white crystalline salt (MgCO, that occurs naturally as dolomite and magnesite, or, it can be magnesium chloride – a bitter deliquescent salt used as a source of magnesium metal, or, magnesium hydroxide – a slightly alkaline crystalline compound use as a laxative and gastric antacid, or, magnesium oxide – magnesia, or magnesium sulfate – a sulfate of magnesium – a white salt MgSO used in medicine and in industry (Epsom Salts).

So what magnesium source are we concerned with when it comes to HEALTH?

Did you know Magnesium is a mineral. A mineral not often heard about except when it comes to the term ‘Milk of Magnesia’.

Milk of Magnesia was something that I was given as child growing up when my stool was hard or it was difficult release. My sisters and I were always given Milk of Magnesia and told it would soften our ‘stool’ so it could be passed easier. But is that all we know about Magnesium?

As a mineral, it may well be one of modern medicine’s best kept secrets. Medically speaking, magnesium is “a white mineral element found in soft tissue, muscles, bones, and to some extent in the body fluids. It is a naturally occurring element on earth, being extracted from wells, and sea water. The human body contains approximately 25 gm. of magnesium, most of which is in the bones. Muscles contain less of it than they do of calcium. It is also in the blood.” (Taber’s Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary)

Magnesium is found in food, grains, fruits, and vegetables, in sufficient quantities that it is not necessary to make special dietary planning to include it. A typical diet contains 200 to 400 mg., however, very little of this is absorbed. When in the younger years, magnesium is usually not of much concern to the health of a human person; but, as one ages magnesium is depleted more quickly in the body and then, suddenly, we, as senior citizens are told we need to take a magnesium supplement- at least 300-400 mg. per day.

The function of  magnesium is to activate enzymes that catalyze reactions between phosphate ions and adenosine triphosphate (ATP). “It is also associated with regulation of body temperature, neuromuscular contraction, and synthesis of protein.” “A deficiency is similar to that produced by hypocalcemia, weakness, and mental depression.”

What you don’t hear or know is that magnesium is the regulator of over 300 vital processes in your body. You hear about Mineral Baths today as being good for you. In the era of the Ancient Greeks and Romans, the people soaked in mineral baths to help restore the magnesium in their bodies. In Chinese Medicine it is considered the “lamp of life”.  A good soak in the tub filled with warm water and Epsom Salts, will do the same thing. The magnesium in the Epsom Salt is absorbed into the body through the skin and into the blood stream.

I have clients who tell me their woes about sore muscles, constipation, low energy levels, fatigue, etc. I have experienced the sore muscle syndrome myself. But I know that Magnesium will always come to my rescue, when nothing else does.

So, if magnesium can regulate the vital processes of the body, what are some of those processes?  Here are a few examples: Magnesium can…..

  • fight off pollution of the blood, and regulate calcium
  • support a healthy immune system
  • help you digest protein and metabolize fat
  • maintain nerve function
  • keep joints fluid and mobile, and relax muscles
  • help balance blood sugar and curb sugar cravings
  • create energy
  • reduce offensive body odors
  • combat stress
  • normalize/regulate bowel issues
  • insure deeper, and more satisfying sleep
  • emergency rooms have magnesium on their crash carts, and use it intravenously to quickly regulate proper heart rhythm for those in need of heart support.
    Magnesium being a natural mineral cannot be patented. It is safe and has natural restorative powers. As a supplement you can get it in pill, capsule, or powdered form. I prefer the powdered, which I put in water or a smoothie, or juice. The dosage varies depending upon your health situation, as does  the type of magnesium you might need. Consult your doctor for the dosage and type good for your needs. Overdosing on magnesium, as with anything else can have adverse side affects.

I love magnesium and, ever since I heard about the above benefits, use it on a regular basis. It does work with the natural body to help the body heal itself. I find it to be, as well, a great pain reliever, and a great supplement when taken during the detoxification process, which is the golden key to maximum good health!

Cholesterol

I have had a lot of requests asking me to blog on CHOLESTEROL. What is it really all about.

Image result for pics in regard to cholesterol           WHAT IS CHOLESTEROL?

My handy Taber’s Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary says: “Cholesterol is a monohydric alcohol. A sterol (one of a group of substances related to fats and belonging to the lipoids) widely distributed in animal tissues, cells and body fluids. It occurs in the yolk of eggs, various oils, fats, and nerve tissue of the brain and spinal cord. It can be synthesized in the liver and is a normal constituent of the bile – a secretion of the liver.  It is important in metabolism serving as a precursor of various steroid hormones e.g., sex hormones, adrenal corticoids.” The Collegiate Dictionary says, “It is important in physiological processes and is implicated, experimentally, as a factor in arteriosclerosis (thickening of the walls of the arterioles with loss of elasticity and contractility).”

I am assuming that the above definition of ‘cholesterol‘ is why the doctors have come to the conclusion that ‘Cholesterol‘ is bad for us. But is that all that one needs to know? They basically tell you that you have high cholesterol because of the LDL and HDL numbers being high. But what does LDL and HDL mean – what is it?

First, you have to understand the working of the body and the cells in it; the utilization of nutrition to and into our cells, and the blood system and its highways (the vascular system).

The body is basically one big cell with little cells working together and doing all the work for the big cell. What comes to my mind is an umbrella and the parts that make it open and close etc. in order for it to be useful.  These little cells make up the organs of the body, of which there are many, each with its own special task to do. And, for those of you who are not aware; most organs are in pairs. Any one organ may be extirpated and the remaining one will do all necessary functions peculiar to it.

The liver – the largest organ in the body – plays an important part in the absorption of nutrients; it can create chemical changes, store nutrients, or pass them on unchanged to the rest of the body for utilization. The liver is really a miraculous organ, as it can create its own amino acids, change sugars to fats, and vice versa. It can create or destroy. The liver creates the cholesterol in the body.

In other of my blogs I have commented on alkalinity versus acidity. When our body becomes acidic from the nutrients we put into our body our nutrition becomes coagulating (anionic). Our building materials – fats, fuels, minerals and other compounds start sticking or clumping together. This is what the doctors are telling us happens in our blood vessels or veins. What they don’t tell you is that the ACIDITY, which comes from most of the foods we eat, is heat-producing and this, (the acidity), causes the inflammation in the walls of the vascular system throughout the body.

Quoting Dr. Robert Morse, N.D. “Lipids (fats) begin sticking to the walls of the vessels in hopes of bufferingg this inflammation. But lipid bonding also causes lipid stones, such as gallbladder and liver stones.” He goes on to say; “CHOLESTEROL IS THE MOST COMMON ANTI-INFLAMMATORY LIPID THAT THE BODY USES TO FIGHT THIS INFLAMMATION. When the tissues become more acidic and this inflames, the liver will produce more cholesterol to fight it.” What happens next?  The blood cholesterol levels begin to elevate. Minerals start bonding and form “rock-type” stones which show up as kidney stones, bone spurs, and the like.

Cholesterol is also referred to as “plaque.” Your liver produces an abundant amount of cholesterol, which is an important lipid used by the body for many reasons.  A large portion of a cell’s membrane wall is cholesterol. The adrenal glands (a triangular-shaped body adjacent to and covering the superior surface of each kidney), use cholesterol to make cortical-type steroids, which are, in part, the body’s anti-inflammatories.  Inflammation, simply put, means that the body is on fire.  When the body becomes acidic from a predominately acid forming diet, the adrenal glands are affected and become weak making it harder for the body to adequately defend itself against the inflammation which is a killer of cells. Dr. Morse tells us that “the body, in its infinite wisdom tries to compensate for this acidic condition by several methods, including: steroid production, cholesterol (lipid) plaquing, calcium extraction, and electrolyte or fluid retention.” This is the body’s attempt to alkalize itself – to fight acidosis in a highly acidic body. Alkalization is key to tissue regeneration, to the breaking up of stones, and to the removal of plaqued lipids. Lipid plaquing from inflammation/acidosis causes poor circulation leading to tissue death, heart attack and strokes.”

The plaquing from inflammation is what the medical doctors emphasize when they talk about high cholesterol levels (LDL’s, HDL’s). They then give you prescription drugs to supposedly solve the cholesterol issues and the high blood pressure as well as other medical issues.

Are you still confused?  What do you need to  know to understand about the LDL and HDL?  We are often told the LDL is high, the HDL is high, or the LDL is high and the HDL is low, or the LDL is low and the HDL is high. Or, that the LDL is the Bad Cholesterol and the HDL is the good Cholesterol. But what does that all mean?

To make it simple, Cholesterol is essential for the formation of steroids (anti-inflammatory: anabolic type), bile acids and cellular wall membranes. Cholesterol can only be used by the body in its free form. This free cholesterol is then bound or connected to transporters for transport through the blood to the cells. In most cooked foods, and especially meats, lipids become bonded and are no longer free. The LDL and HDL are proteins. LDL’s are low-density proteins, and HDL’s are high-density proteins. I never really understood this, and it is interesting to find out that LDL’s are related not only to blood problems, but liver issues, malabsorption, hyperthyroidism, sepsis and stress to name a few health problems. And, that HDL’s are related to adrenal function, biliary cirrhosis, nephritis, high blood pressure and/or other conditions, and dietary habits or, the over eating of meats.

In conclusion, from what I have researched, most of the cholesterol problems are related to, again, the liver and the adrenal glands, which are in turn the cause of a myriad of health issues, over and above the only ones we hear about, in relation to cholesterol, which are the heart problems and blood pressure problems. And, that the foods we eat are the cause of the cause of most health issues.

Also, how I see it, the LDL and HDL numbers need to balance correctly for everything to be normal in the Liver and Adrenal Gland activity areas of the body. If the Liver is not working correctly and the Adrenal Glands are weak, that does not create balance. Everyone has their own LDL and HDL numbers. If you have any questions, you need to discuss your numbers with your doctor and hopefully he can explain what they represent in a way that you can understand them.

I like what Dr. Morse suggests when  he talks about removing the firewall safely.It is not difficult to remove this plaque and to break up lipid-type stones if you consume an 80-100 percent raw-food diet. Raw foods remove inflammation through alkalization and increased steroid production, thus dissolving stones and plaque lipids. This will unclog the body, increasing blood flow to tissues, which in turn increases nutrition and energy to cells. This will restore or regenerate these weakened areas.”

I hope this has helped one and all to better understand Cholesterol

The answer to all the above issues, of course, leads back to the need for DETOXIFICATION.
