The fallacy that anything that is Indian is good for you

masala teaI have a new client. 35 year old male from Central Africa.

I suggested that he posts his food diary and mood diary every day, so we can figure out how to get him well.

So far there are intense symptoms of yeast die-off, once we removed sources of sugar and starches.

Going deeper, I found out that the Masala tea he is drinking is regular tea with Indian spices.

One of my friends is an Ayurvedic pulse reader, and as such he recommends spices to his clients.

Accepting, allowing, making room for what you don't want in the context of health

facial-swellingOne of my students went to a dentist. The dentist hit a nerve while giving her a novocain or lidocain injection, and then, instead of finding another spot, kept on pressing on.

She was in major pain, I recommended that she practices allowing, accepting, and it will help her heal.

The instinct is, the knee jerk reaction is to tighten up, resist, ponder how to fix it, reject it, go to another doctor, think about malpractice suit... and other resistant and "normal" reactions.

I have observed people, including myself, inflicting more damage on themselves by doing all the things I recommend against.

The connection between Fructose and eczema, psoriasis, arthritis, gout, ADHD, Alzheimer's, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease, and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, thyroiditis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and insulin-dependent diabetes

Fructose has been implicated in numerous inflammatory disease processes including eczema, psoriasis, arthritis, gout, ADHD, Alzheimer's, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease, and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, thyroiditis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and insulin-dependent diabetes.

Fructose is absorbed differently from glucose in the intestinal tract.

Glucose stimulates the release of insulin from the pancreas. Fructose doesn't. Instead of insulin, cells use glut-5 transporter to move fructose into cells. Most cells only have very limited amounts of this transporter, so it's primarily cleared by the liver, where it's easily transformed either into fat or components that eventually increase blood lipids like triglycerides.

And, fructose has a toxicity factor beyond its caloric equivalent.

Unusual Healing Modalities

Jim Humble of MMS fameThe Cleansing event went well. The energy was reasonably strong, and the feedback is that people felt the energy, felt their hands warm up, felt the nausea, so it showed people that something was happening.

Some people wrote to me that they are afraid to attend because they can't afford to get the healing crisis in the middle of the week. I understand. I made sure that the duration of the energy in each position was really short.

The next call is on Monday, and I am wondering what will happen afterwards.

I am not particularly committed to the path of healer. Why? Because people that are interested in healers, or healing, are mostly people that have physical issues, and they want to fix them.

I like to be on the side of health, on the side of life, on the side of power.

I am not interested in fixing anything: Every solution is the beginning of a much bigger problem. This has been the story of life on earth... remember, the Holocaust was the Final Solution...

Regardless, let me impart some of the "solutions" I have met in the recent years, that I have tested, and at least for a while, found useful.

Fructose: Fructose Intolerance, Fructose Malabsorption and Irritable Bowel Syndrome: are they connected?

irritable bowel syndrome and fructoseIrritable Bowel Syndrome is much like a puzzle. We discover pieces that look like pieces of the puzzle, only to later find out that they were just similar to the real piece...

Fructose malabsorption looks very promising in solving the IBS puzzle.

Fructose is a type of sugar that you can find in most plants. Fructose, the table sugar we know, is a mixture of different sugars, one of them being fructose.

For quite some time the word in the street has been that fructose is good for you, especially to people struggling with their weight, and people with hypoglycemia. New research proves the word in the street wrong: instead of fructose being good for you, it is, by itself, a true poison.

The body doesn't know how to use fructose! The digestive system can't deal with it effectively, when it is by itself, or when the proportion of the fructose is over the proportion of other sugars, like glucose. Instead of it being able to use it as food, it just feeds the bad bacteria and the yeast in our gut, causing horrible symptoms, both inside and outside our gut.

If you have digestive symptoms, like bloating, flatulence, or abdominal pain, it is worth looking at the idea that the fructose in what you it is causing the symptoms.

And if you have depression, mild forms of hallucination, sleeping disorder, confused mind, dyslexia, high blood pressure, headaches, then you may be dealing with the effects of the alcoholic fermentation and its results: leaky gut syndrome, GAPS, and mild alcohol poisoning.
