A Healthy Gut and More

magic

Here it is the 22nd of January and just now I am creating an energy space in writing something personal…from my AA birthday to after my belly button birthday which is in January it is always a review time in my life for me.  So here I am back at the keyboard on a personal level…I did get a few posts out and kept up pretty much with contacts here on the blog…2016 is the best year yet…giggles

I always like to review my health plan every six months or so, as i use food as medicine in my life and I like to pay close attention to how my current plan is working for me and see if I could make some adjustments…my attention was drawn to probiotics and so started my research on that area…

Before adding probiotics to your shopping list this is what I found out and why now I am eating sauerkraut every day…

Here is some info I found out…

2oz of non pasteurized sauerkraut has more probiotics than 100 probiotic capsules

4-6oz of sauerkraut has 10 trillion bacteria, which is a good thing

Homemade kraut is the best, however you can buy readymade if you are prudent in making sure it is organic and not heated…heating destroys the probiotics

Fresh artesian water should be used and sea salt…no vinegar or heat

I save the liquid and I like to drink it a little each day or so.

In my area, Southern California, I found Bubbies and it is in the refrigerated deli case

In The Gluten Summit, 2013, Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, MD, told Dr. Tom O’Bryan, ““With every mouthful of sauerkraut you’re consuming billions of beneficial microbes which will be killing the pathogens in your gut driving them out and replenishing the beneficial flora in your digestive tract.”

Cabbage is high in anti-inflammatory properties, vitamins A and C. Cabbage also reduces lipids in the bloodstream. When cabbage is fermented into sauerkraut the fermentation process opens up the cell walls accessing a higher ratio of vitamins. It has been said that sauerkraut has 200 times more vitamin C than the head of cabbage before fermentation.

I divide the kraut into 1-2oz servings and eat one a day, you can heat it then if you like, I like mine cold…the kraut comes in glass jars and should remain in glass containers, again to preserve the probiotic properties.

Just following these simple instructions I have noticed a reduction in body swelling and a general all over good feeling, I am very pleased with the results. My gut area has reduced some and my digestive system seems to be liking my new treat to it…giggles

I have finally made the complete switch to organic fruits and veggies; and grass fed for farm animal products, my budget required an ease in process and so that process is now complete.

I made a organic, gluten free pumpkin bread for my birthday present to me and it was/is delicious, a Christmas present to me was a toaster oven and I love, love it, so now in my spiritual space of 8×10 I have a rice cooker, electric fry pan and a toaster oven…can life get any better than this…I don’t think so….giggles

Have a wonderful new year…and keep in touch

Much love and light
Spiritdancing

PS:

AND…the most important part of my new year beginning is my a new addition to my spiritual life, I already meditate daily and have my spiritual declarations I make for you, all the world, Gaia and myself, this one I have added that I also now do daily…and twice on Sunday’s….giggles

“So if you like to clean your energy field, simply summon and visualize a beam of WHITE LIGHT from the highest point imaginable….descending down into your energy field which makes you LIGHTER and BRIGHTER. Go down from head to body to toes.

Then sit there about 10-15 minutes while feeling and watching the changes you experience. Once done, you may feel (I have always 100% of times) feel lighter and swifter in my energy field. Don’t take my words for it, do it and experience it yourself.”  Here’s to your clean energy field…yes!!!!

Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater

pumpkin scene

Yes, I am aware Halloween is past, however, if you bought a pumpkin it is probably still on your front door step. AND if you didn’t buy one, now is a good time to get one as you will probably get a really good price on one…AND pumpkin’s unique health benefits make it the standout fruit of the fall season.

Here are some of the health ideas and benefits of pumpkin:
1 cup of cooked pumpkin puree gives you over 100 percent of your daily vitamin A requirement, vital for the health of your bones and reproduction and immune systems

It has high concentration of beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant; consuming foods high in beta-carotene has been linked to decreased risk of development of certain cancers and even heart disease.

Pumpkin is also loaded with fiber, a digestive superstar that helps you produce waste, which, in turn, helps you eliminate toxins and absorb important nutrients. It helps maintain blood sugar and energy levels, slowing down the absorption of carbohydrates into the bloodstream and also keeps you satiated – so you aren’t left hungry and reaching for that unhealthy afternoon snack.

Pumpkin is easy to roast – simply dice, deseed, dress in olive oil and your favorite spices, and roast in a 400-degree oven for about 25 minutes.

Canned pumpkin is also great and much more convenient to use, just be sure to buy 100 percent pure organic pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filing, which can be full of artificial flavors, sweet syrups and additives.

Don’t forget the seeds, they are very healthy to snack on and can also be used in many different recipes, they can be flavored or just roasted, store in a glass container that has a good seal so they stay fresh.

You can make pumpkin french fries, pumpkin smoothies, pumpkin soups, baked pumpkin for casseroles, the idea are bountiful, just do a google search for your favorite idea and you will find many recipes.

So get your fall pumpkin and become a pumpkin eater. Happy Fall Adventures.

A Great Sour Cream Substitute – Avocado Dressing

avocado dressing

This is called a dressing and the first time I made it, that was my intended use…however, I immediately realized it was excellent as a dip and a sauce.

I no longer use sour cream, and I really, really miss it…well…this recipe is an excellent sour cream substitute…I love, love, love it!!!! It not only is good, it is good for you, it has all healthy ingredients, of course you need to purchase healthy ingredients which means organic, gluten free and no GMO…

It is also very good with chips as a dip and you could probably add other ingredients to spice/flavor it up for a dip, I haven’t done that as I just really like it just like the original.

Without further ado:

Avocado Salad Dressing

1 Large Avocado
2 tsp fresh lemon juice (fresh squeezed please)
½ C Greek Yogurt (no GMO…gluten free…from grass fed cows…active and live cultures…rBGH free
1 tsp organic hot sauce
¼ C Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Cloves of garlic
¾ tsp Himalayan Salt

Blend well in a blender then refrigerate

While making it be sure and say yummy sounds and sing yummy, yummy…good for my tummy and it will feel the love and taste even better…have fun!!!!

Why I Went Gluten Free

GMO companies

Are you gluten intolerant or poison intolerant?

I went gluten free and organic with no GMO products when the light bulb went on what was being done to our food supplies here in the USA. I am going to just give you a small intro into the poison that is used to process our foods by the name of glyphosate and it is found in Roundup. Here goes…

There is a company called Monsanto they are the manufacturer of Roundup…

“Monsanto knows exactly what harm is being done to your gut by their RoundUp Ready GMOs. In 2003, Monsanto filed their application to patent glyphosate as an antibiotic/antimicrobial. The patent was granted in 2010. Studies show that glyphosate kills beneficial gut flora. 70%+ of our immune system resides in our gut. Kill the good stuff and the bad stuff can make you sick, overweight, or BOTH.”

This is why I went gluten free so I could control my beneficial gut flora and not eat the crops that are planted and harvest with Roundup…this is how it is done…

“While glyphosate goes hand in hand with GM agriculture, many people are unaware that glyphosate is also used on many non-GMO crops as a desiccant, ripening or drying agent. When these crops (such as wheat, barley, sugar cane, oats, lentils, edible peas, sunflowers, potatoes and cantaloupe) are nearly mature, farmers are allowed to spray glyphosate herbicides on the crop to kill the plant which causes it to dry down for a quicker harvest.”

All of this extends beyond the health of what we eat; it also includes the feeding of cattle and poultry, which in turn we eat also. The majority of American consumers who don’t even have the legal right to know through truthful labeling if they are eating GMOs, are consuming non-organic, Roundup Ready soy, canola, cottonseed or soy on a daily basis, and therefore are being exposed to glyphosate residues year round; additionally, animals fed Roundup sprayed GMO plants will bioaccumulate glyphosate and/or glyphosate metabolites, adding to the consumer’s bodily burden of these gut flora-altering, highly toxic chemicals.

This is why it is so important to know where your food items are coming from and what they have been fed, as leaky gut and many of current diseases that are at epidemic levels are caused by this chemical in our foods…it is criminal to say the least. There is much more to this story, I just want to have my readers become aware and to have them do their own research according to their own life styles.

Please stop using Roundup on your own property also; there are several recipes of essential oils and non toxic weed killers you can use that are not dangerous to your health and that of others.

Here are the countries that have banned GMO farming in them: Italy, Ireland, Scotland, France, Greece, Latvia, Germany, Iceland, Hungry, India, and Indonesia. What is important to know is that even though they don’t grow them, they can still import them, but they require labeling them as such.

Please be responsible and protect yourself and your family by getting informed on this information. I have included the companies owned by Monsanto that sell their GMO products. GMO = Generic Modified Organism

My Wellness Schedule

schedule

I have referred to my wellness schedule several times so thought it was about time to share that with you, you may be interested in some of it, all of it and/or none of it….giggles. So here goes…

First thing upon waking up I drink about an 8oz glass of water that I put by my bed before I go to bed and take Serrapeptase which is a supplement that clears out and keeps clear your veins of plaque etc, it is said that if you take this on a regular basis your chances of a stroke or heart attack is greatly reduced.

I don’t take anything for 30 minutes after I do this, then I fix my coffee and sit in the sun and/or porch for at least 20 minutes, then I come in and fix my collagen drink, which is 2T of fresh squeezed lemon juice; 1 scoop of collagen powder; and about 1 to 2 T of structured water…shake really well until the powder is mixed with the liquid.

Then I take two ice cubes to put at the nap of my neck, my drink and turn on my DNA Repair meditation tone, I drink the drink and apply the ice cubes and listen to the meditation which takes about 40 min.

Then I fix my detox drink which consists of 2T of freshly squeezed lemon juice, 2T of Braggi Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, 1tsp of cinnamon, 1tsp of coconut sugar, a couple dashes of cayenne pepper, mix very well and drink…(shiver and shake your head…giggle). Wait 30 minutes and then you are ready to eat…

Eating means a smoothie…this is what mine consists of; at least ¼ c of blueberries (I freeze them so they sort of act like ice cubes) ¼ c of coconut milk; 1tsp of cinnamon, 1tsp of coconut sugar, 1T of sprouted flax powder, 1 scoop of grass fed-gluten free-gmo free-whey powder, 1 scoop of green veggie and fruit powder again gluten free-gmo free-organic-raw, add a splash of structured water if too thick..blend in blender until completely mixed.

Then I take my supplements after the smoothie; I am not going to list those as supplements are a very individual thing according to each person.

While drinking/eating this I listen to vibrational tone music for healing myself and the world, this takes about 30 to 40 minutes.

In between everything, somewhere I squeeze in oil pulling and spraying magnesium oil on…by 1:00 I am ready to go…giggles

I am healed and the world is healed…this is how I spend my time in my 8X10 sanctuary…holding the love and light for all of us. I love you all!!!!!
