chemical food vs natures goodness

roo foot.JPGI was recently asked this question. To be fair, I could spend a week on it, but I will try to put some brief thoughts forward. Your endocrine system is a chemical messaging system  consisting of hormones and used to regulate your bodies organs. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has recently said that pesticides contain toxic chemicals that are known to be Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals, and are suspected of being involved in reproductive problems, the rising prevalence of cancer, neurological issues and altered immune function. Big call from WHO. WHO also made a statement back in 2015, saying that it was probable that glyphosate is carcinogenic. Residual glyphosate is found in food (100% of Californian wines tested in 2015/16 by Microbe Inotech lab of St Louis, came back with glyphosate positive results) when not even sprayed on the plant, but simply around it. Not only do chemicals alter our own metabolic system, but they alter the soils chemical construction, and deplete many essential minerals we require for healthy living, eg magnesium, boron, chromium, calcium to name a few.  In the USA in 2017, the Environmental Working Group ran a report that showed of 48 conventionally grown crops, over 70% had toxic chemical contamination, with 178 different forms of pesticides being found… The same group compiled a list of “The Dirty Dozen” top most affected foods, when grown in non-natural form

#1  Cherries  #2 Dairy   #3  Strawberries, every sq km of strawberries has an average of 136kg pesticides sprayed on it, compared to other crops average 11kg   #4  Apples, testing showed 36 toxic chemicals. Peeling won’t help, as toxin is in fruit      #5 Tomatoes, again thin skin and so toxins inside the fruit    #6 Potatoes, laden with pesticides and fungicides.  #7 leafy greens   #8 Peaches and nectarines (unfortunately my favourites..)  45 different pesticides found   #9 Grapes   already said    #10 Coffee  also found to have some banned chemicals, as grown in countries without regulative control    #11 Celery  has no skin, so chemical applications have direct penetration   #12 Capsicum  over 39 chemicals found, and thin skin for rapid absorption. Remember that  these are only in chemical grown foods, thank goodness. And as a quick help –    Apple cider vinegar and sauerkraut have a probiotic called Acetobacter that metabolizes, and rids you of glyphosate residue. Activated Charcoal, Zeolite, and also diatomaceous earth and bentonite, can all help effectively rid our cells of most heavy metal chemicals. And best practice method ? Support your local hard-working grower of natural organic produced fruit and veges, and treasure your own great health!

Oooh, and whats the picture relevance?  Nothing, I just happened to see these cool guys on my walk, and loved the Joeys foot hanging out!

DIATOMACEOUS EARTH USES

Diatomaceous.jpgHeres on of my favourites! This week I was disappointed to hear DIATOMACEOUS EARTH likened to asbestos! There is no connection, as asbestos is carcinogenic, and will give you an early trip back to our maker, where diatomaceous may cause some lung issues (silicosis), it will only do if inhaled frequently for a period of time ( water will drown you rapidly if inhaled as well). I have yet to hear of anyone having respiratory issues because of using Diatomaceous for the vast array of uses it has, but “black lung” was a common illness from silica (bound in coal dust) inhaled by coal miners back a while, when safety precautions weren’t in place. I have quarried, and used diatomaceous in stock and soil products for over 20 years, sold it to people with fantastic feedback for health benefits, and drink it myself as well as using it as an ant barrier and cockroach deterrent. The positive uses, if used sensibly, are amazing, and this guy deserves a place in every home! It’s interesting that 59% of the earths crust is silica, and 95% of minerals contain it as well.

Diatomaceous earth is a great way to detox your body, and at the same time replenish vital minerals. It controls both internal and external parasites by internally cutting the parasite when it ingests the silica, which is really a very, very small form of glass.  By taking this mighty fine powder, you remove toxins and heavy metals from your body  (as the silica binds onto these, and flushes them out! ).  Stock will actively seek out the diatomaceous earth and eat, or rub against it, as a natural worming / insecticide and health tonic . It can be rubbed onto fur coats, added to chook food, and taken internally by us to carry out this operation.  Add it to shampoos for lice control. It is completely safe to use! Take one to three teaspoons twice daily for a week, and drink plenty of water. If you are pregnant, consult your medical professional first. You can dust plants for pest control, create non-toxic ant barriers, general insect control and add to the soil as a plant health remedy.

HANDY HEALTH HINTS

 

lucas (2).jpg

Here’s some real handy hints from Lucas, our in store science whiz, who intends to fly to Mars on an Elon Musk expedition!! wow, exciting, and with this young genius at the helm, Lucas will be a house hold name shortly! Here’s some of his hints

To make a splinter draw cream, simply use BAKING POWDER, with a couple of drops of colloidal silver optional, and mix it  with ALOE VERA gel, apply to site and band-aid over. Leave for 12 or so hrs, job done! (Baking powder can be replaced with Epsom salts)

Broken bones? Comfrey leaves, made into a poultice and applied to injury, lessen pain and dramatically speed up healing process. Taking internally, either chopped into salads, stir-fries, patties or drunk as a tea, will greatly help with all indigestion issues.

Apple cider vinegar eye wash for cataracts, put 1/4 tsp with 100mls distilled water and place 2-3 drops in each eye. Repeat 2-3 times daily, keeping eyelids closed for 5 mins.

As a great garden fertilizer, spray 1 pt seawater, to 10 parts freshwater, and spray on foliage and ground. Use around every 10 days, and remember, like a good wine or beer, a little is good, heavy doses will come back and bite you…  As an insecticide, spray 1 to 5 pts on foliage when, or before, attacks occur. Again, little is great, too much and the plants will suffer!

As a bathroom/kitchen cleaner, use 1 pt citric acid to10 pts water, spray the surfaces, leave a minute or so and wipe clean! Amazing results. Also use Citric acid to help keep your pH at 7.34, and relieve (even get rid) of gout.

NATURES ANIMAL SECRETS….

 

 

Did you know that a swift (or swallow) cannot take off from a flat surface, hence if they land on the ground they are kinda shot! They require rapid airflow over their wings in order to get lift, therefore they need to drop first before taking flight. The hare has a unique method of getting through tough food supply times, by eating its own “poo”, and therefore recycling the nutrients passed during the first round. It passes soft dung during the day, which helps the process… That a hen drinks, but doesn’t urinate? A bumble bee flies by reducing its gravitational pull. Thomas T Brown explains that gravitational pull is a linear positive/negative alignment (north to south) of an electron’s charge. This pull is compromised by an added electrical charge. When the bumble bee vibrates his wings, air flows over the hairs on his body and creates a static electrical charge ( just like rubbing a balloon on your head hair) and slightly relieves the dear bee of its gravitational pull, or weight! and so off he wanders..  A duck cannot back, and my dear uncle Ben told me several times that as a young man, many years back, he would catch ducks for the table, by making a narrow ramp downwards in the ground, and put peas in the end of it. Along came the unsuspecting duck who wandered down the ramp for the free feed , and ended up providing food for the Austin family during the great depression!  Also, a frog completely sheds its skin about once a week. After performing this task, it generally recycles as well, by eating the old skin… And, speaking of eating, if you fill the oil sump on your car with water (because its easier and cheaper), you would expect major problems with your motor. If you fill your digestive system with processed, chemical containing and nutrient deficient food, you will experience issues and ill-health. Recently I was told by a food supplier that there is no difference between chemical mass-produced vegetables and fruit, and conventionally grown produce. I point to the food source of the bee, pollen, which keeps the wonderful workers alive during winter. It is now made by a laboratory, synthetically, to exactly the same recipe as the bees. When the bees are fed this new man-made brew, they die…

What a BEAUTY !! MCT oil

mct (2).JPGThis guy is a really underrated energy booster, and valuable tool for those seeking more energy, along with excellent health benefits. In short, medium chained triglycerides are short strings of carbon and hydrogen. The medium length combination of the coconut derived oil means it is far easier for the body to assimilate the fatty acids. It is rapidly taken to the liver, where it’s converted into ketones, which in turn fuel the brain and the muscles for optimum performance.  The fatty acids are a much more efficient, and safe form, of energy conversion than the usual sugar and carbohydrates. The three MCT acids are rapidly converted to energy, and are great for folk with digestive issue, as they require virtually no effort to digest or absorb. Along with the impressive energy boost, the MCT acts as a strong antioxidant, fighting free radical damage and restoring damaged cells. It is particularly useful at repairing brain cells, and is well-recognized at helping with stress relief. Other recognized benefits include the control of the Candida yeast, and other fungal pathogens, improved memory and general alertness, improved lipid and skin moisture, great for those who have crohns disease, or have had their gallbladder removed, and heart health. This will fit well into the young atheletes programme, as well as those of us reaching my tender age… as a really great natural product to get us on top of our game. Come in and see the awesome team at NOURISH HEALTH FOOD STORE (Tewantin Plaza) and chat about this excellent big player in health

 

 

AMAZING SALT LAMPS

 

These simple gifts from nature simply transform the energy, wellbeing and health of a home. Fantastic for those with asthma and allergies. They work by attracting “moist toxin laden” molecules ( laden with smoke, dirt, pollen, bacterium, fungi, pathogens and lots of other forms carried in water vapor) from the air. The heat from the bulb then dries out this molecule, and the Gaia given gift of salt is used to neutralize the effects. The warm lamp also releases negative ions, which in turn has wonderful health benefits for our physical, and soul, being. Check out the large range, at unbeatable prices, now at NOURISH HEALTH FOOD STORE, TEWANTIN Plaza
