Superfoods for Superhuman Bones, No Kidding

Many individuals think that the main cause of osteoporosis is the lack of calcium in their diet plan. In the general picture, calcium is just a small piece of the puzzle. Calcium supplements can definitely assist; there are other dietary issues that require to be examined.

In fact, the primary dietary reason for osteoporosis is eating foods that are highly acidic in nature, such as refined white sugar, fine-tuned white flour, high-fructose corn syrup, sodas, cookies, candies, sugary foods, desserts, and anything containing sweeteners. The over-consumption of these items causes the pH level in your blood to end up being extremely acidic. In order to counterbalance this, your body connects for any calcium and magnesium it can discover and launches those into your bloodstream in an effort to keep the pH level at a healthy balance.

With every soft beverage, sweets, cake, and whatever sweet you indulge in, you are degrading your skeleton of its density. The calcium and magnesium the body stores in an attempt to counteract this acidic environment gets gone through your kidneys, where it can also add to kidney issues and exits your body through your urine. To prevent losing your bone to dietary causes, simply avoid taking in any white flour, processed sugars, sugarcoated, soft drinks, sugary foods, candies, bread, or any other active ingredients that are made with refined carbs. In addition, particular superfoods, like broccoli, cabbage, celery, pumpkin seeds, and other dark green leafy vegetables help keep the pH balance in a healthy balance. These foods get you plenty of calcium and magnesium from healthy sources such as natural, plant vitamins. You also need to add to your diet various sea veggies, which are naturally alkaline. Those include seaweed, kelp, and lots of others. Sprouts are likewise a remarkable superfood option.


Pumpkin– A Super Food!

Consider the word pumpkin and pictures of jack-o-lanterns and whipped cream covered Thanksgiving pies will most likely pop into your mind. Pumpkin is traditionally considered a vacation food and is a staple in our cooking area pantries and freezers during that joyful time of the year. Did you know that pumpkin now declared as one of the ‘Super Foods?’

According to Dr. Steven Pratt, author of SuperFoods Rx: Fourteen Foods That Will Change Your Life, “Well, pumpkin is one of the most nutritionally important foods known to man. Moreover, it’s low-cost, readily available all year in canned kind, exceptionally easy to incorporate into recipes, high in fiber, low in calories, and loads an abundance of illness combating nutrients.”

What exactly makes pumpkin so extremely awesome?

The effective anti-oxidants referred to as carotenoids give this food its incredibly status. Carotenoids have the ability to ward off the danger of different kinds of cancer and heart problem, together with, cataracts and macular degeneration. Dr. Pratt points out numerous other illness combating very foods in his book as well, however we are most thinking about pumpkin due to the fact that of the year-round accessibility and ease of usage in canned type.

Roasted pumpkin seeds make an awesome stocking stuffer!

Superfoods: Raw Soup Class. ‘Manna – The Ubuntu Living Show’

Welcome back to raw food prep class. Today, we’ve got another delicious recipe for you and we’re going to get into some of the liquid feasting, and what do I mean by that? I mean soups, making soups once again, soup making is one of those staple foods.

Everyone eats soup, everyone. Most people know how to make soup. Soup is normally just boiling vegetables in water until it just become soup. What we’re going to do today is make soup, probably faster than you’ve ever made before tastier than you’ve ever seen. Tasted. Well, when you make it yourself tastier than you would have ever tasted before and colorful, amazingly colorful, not losing all of that color in the cooking and we’re going to do that is with using our blender.

🙂 – >FUNFACT: Pumpkin seeds are a great addition to Soups!

Now, once again, I’m going to be using the power blender, but you can use a hand blender with this recipe or you can use a normal smoothie maker with this recipe it will work with that. You might just need to build a little bit longer. The recipe we’re going to be doing is a tomato and red pepper soup. So we’re going to be blending up tomatoes, red peppers and some other ingredients, and literally five minutes.

Your supers done on the table ready to be eaten soup normally as a half day to hold a affair with things slowly simmering and adding spices and getting the flavors right. Will this recipe it’s so easy, just tucking in a blender turning it on and having an awesome soup? So let’s get started you’ll notice. The first thing in the blender is that it’s got some water in it. Now this waters been warmed through slightly.

So that’s a boil: there’s just gotten a bit hot. That way we can have a hot soup and some of you were wondering or cold soups. None about that doesn’t have to be cold. You can have it warm by using hot water as your base. Okay, so we’ve got the hot water in there and now we’re going to get going with the tomatoes first and that’s some great big Tomatoes here start with 3, i’m going to pull off the little green, but that is actually poisonous.

If you have enough of that. Just chopping it into quarters is fine for the blender, so tomatoes are great to eat because they got a lot of something called lycopene in it. What happens with like a penis? It becomes more absorbable available when you’re blending it or you when you’re cooking it. As I’m not partial to cooking, I prefer blending it and using warm water does the same thing, but if you look at it tomato by cutting it open and certain segments of it as well, when you look at it, it’s just got the most beautiful water eNOS.

It’s great for for getting liquid into our systems for higher for making us hydrated, and it’s also particularly good for for the lungs and for the reproductive system with the seeds. Many benefits with tomatoes: okay to more urgently for tomatoes, are in next we go out red peppers. Now these are beautiful. Looking red peppers thing to remember with your red pepper, is that a green pepper is green because it’s not ripe, whereas a red pepper is a green pepper, that’s ripe! So it’s not there’s a different kind of pepper.

It’s just that the ones picked when it’s actually ripe and picking fruit when it’s ripe is much better for your health and picking fruit when it’s not ripe, because the fruit draws up all the nutrients at the end of its ripening period. So that’s when you’re getting most of the flavor developing as well. So it’s had a chance to ripen on the plant to absorb all those minerals in it that your body craves we’re going to chop that up into two squares to blend that through nicely as well.

This is another reason why, when you go to the shops, red peppers are more expensive than green peppers, because it’s quicker to grow something when you pick it not right to letting it grow all the way to being ripe. Okay, now he has an important question: what do you do with that? The seeds of the pepper you take it outside and you throw it in your garden and then it’s going to grow pepper plants, never waste anything out of your garden.

This is how many pepper plants does that maybe 30 or 40 red pepper plants that you can grow and, if you think of how much money that’s going to save you in the long run. Just from planting this, one pepper seeds phenomenal so really get into any of the fruit that you have, if you cut it open and their seeds in it, put it in your vegetable garden. True, okay, let’s do one more I like to add but more of this because it gives the super bit more of a texture to it.

It’s not so watery Tomatoes quite watery, so it does make the soup quite watery excellent, but the peppers in so tomatoes peppers. What else we got? Ah red, onions? Ok, so I use red onions. I prefer red onions to white onions because they’re red now the color in food indicates the antioxidants in the food antioxidants. Remember those things that stop us from rusting from the inside out and the more color it has the deeper the colors.

The more antioxidants are present, so the red onions got plenty of antioxidants in it. I’r just going to need about a quarter of a red onion for this amount of soup. Yeah quarter, rest of your red onion, keep and use that for another soup. Okay, now we’re going to get into some more flavoring aspects. We start off with basil. We’ve got a mixture of purple and green basil once again, purple color amazing, color too there’s so few foods are actually purple.

So if you can get hold of purple basil, excellent, excellent potent strong, smelling and tasting basil, so we’re given these or rinse we’re just going to pop all of that in their mothers or finish its go basil and bezels also incredibly easy herb to grow in your Garden, get a seedling, get some seed, get it growing. It really likes a lot of sunlight, so it’s normally only going to grow in the middle or towards the end of summer.

Okay. What else do we have for flavor? We have a little bit of rock salt, and this is Himalayan rock salt. It’s a type of salt. That’s been laid down, thousands, if not millions of years ago, and it’s a complete mineral salt like sea salt is so yeah. You could choose either sea salt or rock salt. I put a bit of that in this is very different salt to the salt that you get you buy, packets of iodized, table salt iodized table salt is not the same thing.

It’s gone through a process where a lot of the minerals are lost and a lot of toxic things are added to it. So make sure you getting a natural source of salt, either sea salt or rock salt is a thing to go through. Go for okay. What else have we got? Ah now we like to have our soup a little creamy, but I’m not going to use any animal cream in here. So i’m going to use nuts and I’ve got some cashew nuts raw cashew nuts and they’ll, give it a creaminess and slack more of a heaviness to the soup to make it more filling.

So I’m just going to put about a handful of cashews in there. Two more there we go. What else is on the table? We’ve got some olive oil, olive oil again bit of an oil eNOS and taste to you, soup for your soup. So just add in about a tablespoon to two tablespoons in there yeah that’ll. Do it that’ll sink through, and then we have all these ones? Let’s put these and go G berries. Now I talked about go geez all the time, because they’re amazing amazing, amazing food.

They have incredible nutritional values to them, so add them into whatever you can now. The reason I want to put them in the soup, firstly, is the color we’re trying to make a red soup red go G. Berries will make it an amazing red orange color. Second reason I want to add the goji berries is for its thickening properties. Go geez make the soup thick, so it acts as a natural thickness. You don’t have to use any other thickness yea once again, not a handful will be fine for that excellent got the goji zip.

Obviously the main thing the goat cheese are doing is upping the nutrient density of our soups and making it have more nutritional value for us and remember we eat for nutritional value. So you want to keep thinking I’m going to add the nutritional value of this meal. What else have I got our got a little bit of cayenne, pepper now, Kane pepper is a type of chili and I like to add chili pot, especially to the red soup color again, but also that spiciness goes very well with the red pepper and with the Tomato, if you don’t like spicy food, you don’t have to add it and Kane pepper is very spicy, so be careful that you don’t add too much in there.

Nothing i’m going to put in about half a teaspoon, I’m actually looking forward to a bit of spiciness. Today and in winter adding spices to your soup is an excellent way of making it warming to the body. So all our ingredients in you can see. I amazingly had layers other thing: you’ll notice is I’ve laded that the most water content foods are at the bottom. So that means that the tomato has got most water in its at the bottom and then goes.

I have to dry a dryer. That’s so that the blades, when they start spinning, have something to grab onto because if you throw the dry stuff in first it’ll, probably get stuck and then you’ll have to use the tamper to squash it or take it all out and put it back in. So this makes it blend a lot easier. Other things you could add are things like garlic. If you like garlic or any other herbs or aghanim is one that comes to mind, but you can play with flavors there.

But let’s get this blending and see what it looks like ready. You want to leave it blending, so you don’t hear, knocks and things because when it’s knocking the little bits are so solid bouncing around. We want a suit to be completely smooth, so you want to blend it until it’s looks and sounds like it’s completely smooth, so very much depends on what you’ve actually put in the blender okay. Now one of the most important things, obviously is the taste test.

Because have you put enough salt? Did you put in too much spice you’ve got to test all of the stuff and that you really can do only with your taste buds. So a teaspoon comes in handy for that wow. That is quite spicy, but I love it. It is excellent, so I’m going to pull that out into a bowl. You can see the amazing orange color in that. If you wanted a more red, you can add in more cane pepper or more goji, berries that’ll make it more red.

Now you have to garnish something properly and what I like the most is the sprouts that I’ve grown in the kitchen garden sprout errs. These are falfa amazing sprouts. Most people have had our felt at some point: grow them in your kitchen, garden, sprouter and then use a handful of that on top perfect. Now, you’ve got some living green sprout energy in your soup, and that’s it. We’ve made a tomato soup, it’s taken us maximum five minutes, it tastes amazing.

It looks amazing anyone’s going to be impressed and think that you’ve been slaving away at the stove for hours, but all you’ve done is just blended up a few things. So we’re going to tuck into that and enjoy that and try this at home see how it works out. If it’s not going smooth enough, maybe you need to likely steam your vegetables to get it soft enough. Maybe your blender can’t handle the the solidness, but just try it you’ll figure out a way to make it delicious now.

Why is this soup better than buying a soup or four shelf in a supermarket somewhere packaged one a ready made meal? Firstly, you’ve put your own love attention and energy into making it mom’s food always tastes better than any other food, and there’s a reason for that, because she loves to feed her children and in that way, when someone makes it themselves there’s always an energy of love And caring that comes through with that food and that can’t be matched with anything that you’re buying the shop.

Secondly, you’ve had control over the ingredients, so you know exactly what’s gone in there. You know you’ve put in good organic ingredients and you have not put in any poisons what poisons could be in there. Well, there could be preservatives that could be flavorants. It could be colorants. There could be all manner of poisons present in package soups that you got to be careful of. You have to read the ingredients and then you’ll learn about that.

What else yeah it’s as quick as may be pouring something in and mixing it through. Maybe a little bit longer, but certainly not as long as doing on a stove. So blending is much quicker for that and I suppose also you learning how to feed yourself as opposed to relying on a shop or someone else to do it for you, which is so important to do, knowing what to do for yourself to nourish yourself. Taking that time for yourself to actually honor your body, it’s the only body you have in this life and, if you’re expecting someone else to do it for you, it’s not going to happen.

You’re just going to get inferior grade low nutrient dense foods that are not going to give your body what it needs, which is that nutrient boost. The other thing, of course, is that the extreme processing that a lot of these things go in to go through to get onto the shelf means that it’s been very denatured. So any vitamins, minerals and nutrients, and certainly antioxidants, are probably not even there anymore by the time you end up eating it.

So, what’s the point of eating food, if it’s not actually giving your nutrition we eat for nutrition for nutrients, so you need to make your own to make sure you’re getting the nutrients in that’s enough reasons to start making your own soup and lastly, of course, is A taste amazing, so full flavor, you can add flavors to it. Okay, enough talking make your own okay excellent. Thank you! Sayonara, most of best soup ever yeah.

I think everyone’s going to want to try this come along. We’ve got some more balls back their legs. Oh around 70, a kilo. So if we’re using a hundred grams there’s a lot that normally picking back, I sell these little better. Oh yeah there were people of messenger Larry hands for, like twenty bucks, yeah grams of nuts father kept protein at all protein. Oh no! You want it now teaspoons, but hey. Thank you very yeah.

Oh you got Big Springs. No, I think, there’s no squeeze an asset makes it go long. Hmm, it’s not half an eater, you just hot water, right, hmm, hot soup! That’s man feels so light. It’s like eating light. Hmm, you are eating, like hmm, transform line, hmm lightly, sound mmm, but boiling water. You could you like to see popping on you, don’t have to use boiling water and the kettle has an anomaly. Point2 water does at 70 Celsius.

It doesn’t like going about 70 because that’s where the molecule stop being deranged, when your kettle will go to around it’ll, take most of the Sun would be around 78 I’ll quickly go to 70 and will stay there for about half the time. It’s boiling then, at the very end, for the last say ten seconds: they’ll shoot up 200. So you can stop it’s a 20 seconds before boils and it’ll be a 79 and 100 and your water wouldn’t have deranged and it’s not spoiling.

But my and that’ll burn your mouth 55 will, if you want it really 55 will burn your mouth and it changed their effect or anything. Well. How about people use it for killing germs and such what is it Jim? It’s just bacteria yeah heaviest organ in our body is bacteria right in kilogram of flora, more cells, more from nor organisms back to olin, isms and cells in our body, Oh seriously, something whose body is it it’s more than than they are of us, but I’m certainly There we asked who I’m that which is conscious or Burton someone’s overrun with them parasites and Candida, yeast and mold, which are also just bacteria, which most people are that stuff likes a certain brand of food as its energy, refined, carbs, refined, sugars and processed meat or Meat, so you think about consciousness of all those millions and millions of organisms and your consciousness from your cells, which is fast mall in proportion wise and how many units they are like people think well yeah.

I very well about eating this junk you’re right. It’s the yeast model, fungus, bacteria and parasites that are influencing consciousness to equal Bayless energy like even then. This morning I was hungry after I got super foods coming, I must have eat crap and I bought jungle. Oats pause – I was like sorry juggalos, but like it’s not very healthy, is it is sugar and stuff we’re turning um and, like other when I’ll come home.

There’s like a banana bread like there’s a mango there and there’s banana bread, and I’m like, I know which one’s good for me, but I got ta eat it. I’r feeding the because you who am I feeding bacteria Candida fungus, molds yeast. We have a visitor and because silos hello, I mean the corporation yeah, so she’ll check this outside god. That’s expect the nearest exit. Maybe I’m scared, maybe I’m scared, maybe I’m maybe I’m maybe I’m free and alone.

I maybe I’m scared me happy dreaming of a broken heart since the day we made happened, dreaming of a broken heart and I can’t forehead


Your Brain Is NOT In Your Head (Doctor Explains)

That that’s ridiculous. But in fact, with each passing year and with more and more research we’re beginning to realize that we have two brains, and years ago there was a quite a popular book called the second brain which detailed the fact that there are more neurons.

The cell of the nervous system lining your gut. Then there are in the entire spinal cord, which connects the brain to all the rest of you. So the phrase was coined the second brain, but in fact I’m going to make an argument in the upcoming book. The longevity paradox, then, in fact, your brain up in your head should properly be called your second brain and that your first brain should be properly called your gut.

Now that’s a pretty bold statement, but with the previous lecture we talked about the fact that around 90 % of the cells that make you you are living in your gut and that 99 % of all the genetic material in you is contained in your gut. In your skin, not human cells, and that most likely we have uploaded information processing to our gut for most of the functions that we need to do now when I was in medical school and even up until a few years ago, we knew that we thought that A lot of the hormones that affect our mood among others serotonin and affect our sleep of melatonin.

Initially we thought they were made in the brain, but then subsequent research showed that they we thought that they were made in the neurons in the gut and then sent to the brain. Well now it’s clear that most of the hormones within us are actually made in the gut themselves by bacteria, and if we have the time we’ll talk about one of the amazing effects that roundup glyphosate has had on poisoning our first brain, and I think that has Huge implications on the rates of anxiety and depression that we currently have in in our country and other Western countries, okay.

So the basic concept of how the brain talked to the gut was that there was a very large nerve called the vagus nerve that ran from the the brain down to the heart down to lungs, down the liver and then down to the gut. The intestines and the brain via the vagus nerve would basically tell the gut what to do. It would control the motion of these smooth muscles that don’t otherwise take orders via nerves.

So it’s basically the old idea of cable wiring, your home or even electrical wires or telephone wires, there’s literally a direct electrical signal that goes now. This is actually a fairly fast signal, as anybody who hits a hot plate or a hot fire, you get an instant burning sensation that goes to your spinal cord, actually never gets to your brain and you immediately pull your hand away. So that goes by a cable.

What we were taught is that this is this was primarily a one-way street brain told the gut. What to do now, as I mentioned before, women are much smarter than this, and they long known that the gut tells the brain what to do with a gut sense. And of course, you were right for every one wire going down from the brain. There’s actually nine wires going up from the gut to the brain, and this was one of the first indications that perhaps we had it all wrong as to who was in charge.

And so this is one of the first indications that probably the first, our first brain. Our real brain is down below, and this is an important but second brain now, there’s this cable system or hardwired and whenever I’m doing a podcast or a radio show they always want me to be on a ground or ground link. It cellphones are fairly unreliable, but we have a cellphone system. So the second way that we communicate information is via hormones and hormones, don’t travel via wires.

They travel via, if you will blood vessels or limps or there’s even a suggestion that they travel along meridians of electrical charges. But let’s just say that so the second message is Tech’s missing and they serve and and emails. So this is a believe it or not slower process than the hardwire and it’s more subject to misinterpretation, because you have to have a tower or a cell phone. That is capable of getting a good signal.

And if you remember anything, we talked about how lectins may disrupt signaling is that lectins, among other things, will bind on to a cell’s receptor for a hormone and just stay there and block a hormone such as insulin just giving an example from actually getting the information That it needs to get to a cell, and so both of these systems are very important. We used to think that most of the hormones that we make are made in the gut primarily some in the brain, and they were made probably by specialised hormone, using cells.

But with each passing year as we’re beginning to understand how elaborate the gut population is. The more we’re realizing that it’s actually the bugs in our gut that are responsible for making many of the hormones that communicate to our brain so, rather than a kind of top-down information system of the brain being in control of us. It’s actually at least equal between the gut and the brain, and I think, in terms of our short-term and long-term health, that both the first brain down in the gut is probably the big winner in long term.

I’ll give you an example. I recently was visited by a very famous meditator from Japan, a woman who is actually Deepak Chopra’s a representative in Japan, and she actually translates all his books and she has suffered from severe juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and autoimmune condition. And she it’s so bad that she was on to immunosuppressants. She’d already had two knee replacements for her severe arthritis and she had such incredible pain that she really moved around with the help of a wheelchair and a walker, and she firmly believed that she could meditate her way.

Out of this condition – and I think that’s very admirable – but clearly it wasn’t working – she also followed a ru Vedic diet with large amounts of brown, rice and legumes as her principal diet, and she took all the usual suspects. She took lots of anti-inflammatories like tumeric and to no avail, and apparently she was in Vancouver Canada last December, when an acquaintance handed her the plant paradox and she took it home and read it, and I met her in April of this year when she flew to Meet me beautiful young woman, she walked into my office.

She was on no medications, she was pain free and what had happened well as much as her second brain tried to overpower what was happening down in her gut. This was actually the problem and don’t get me wrong meditation and actually works extremely well for a lot of things, but meditation has yet to break into this first brains barrier and so when, when this brain is out of whack, the consequences are severe across her and She’s just one example: let me give you a better example.

We talked there was a question on the last time about good, bugs and bad bugs. So we know that there’s there’s about 10,000 different species of bacteria, so far identified in our gut and there’s probably well over a million different viruses that live in our gut and a nice smattering of worms and fungi and we’re just beginning to figure out what all These guys do we can classify them generally as good guys and bad guys, and you know that I call the good guys gut buddies and the bad guys gang members and the gang members have different food requirements of the good guys and, what’s so fascinating about the Gang members – and this has been worked out very well in animal models and there’s a couple human models that we can talk about.

So the gang members, love, sugars, simple sugars and they love saturated fats, love them. The good guys can’t live on this, and what we now know is that the gang members send text messages up to your brain to your hunger, centers and the text, messages basically say: you’re hungry, we want more to eat and we actually want more of the things We eat and we want more sugar and we want more saturated fats and those of you have seen Little Shop of Horrors, the movie or the play.

The movie had Rick Moranis in it and an all-star cast. But the blood sucking plant that poor Rick Moranis had to take care of, wanted human blood and her name was Audrey and Audrey constantly got bigger and bigger and needed more and more blood, and she constantly said feed me. Seymour feed me and poor Seymour had to go out and get her what she wanted. So we now know that the bugs in your gut, actually tell you to feed them now.

The converse is true: we know that the good bugs actually want these complex, sugars resistant starches in Ulan, which is a complex sugar, and they actually, if you give them what they want over a few weeks time, they will actually kind of drive out the gang members And they’ll start sending messages to your brain to feed them what they want, and I have so many men who are meat and potatoes guys that would never think of even having a salad within two or three weeks.

Maybe a month they’ll they’ll come in and see me so doc. This is the weirdest thing I crave salads. I can’t go a date without having a salad. That’s really weird, really weird! Well, it is really weird to think that this brain has more control over what you’re actually seeking you’re, actually seeking foods for whoever is control of this brain, and this brain in turn controls this brain and there’s been some beautiful experiments with germ-free mice, where they’ve taken Germ-Free mice, who don’t have any bugs in their gut and they give them feces from fat rats.

You know the nice thing about working with rats and mice as they love to eat each other’s feces. I have a dog, we won’t go into them and they just love it. So you don’t have to give them enemas, fecal enemas, you just give them the other rat species, so they take the skinny mice who are, and you give them the feces from obese mice. And lo and behold, the skinny mice will become obese, and this is actually in the Lance that a few years ago there was a case report of a woman marathon runner, who I mentioned in the plant paradox who was skinny.

She developed the severe intestinal infection called C, difficile or C diff, which is the ultimate gang member and she got it by getting a lot of antibiotics and it killed off all her good bugs and the gang member took over. So one of the ways we treat that now is a fecal transplant and a fecal transplant is exactly what it sounds like we take feces from healthy volunteers. I was actually one in medical school back in the dark ages at Georgia, where we actually use fecal transplants to cure this problem and once a week they would take around a honey bucket.

We called it and medical students would take a crap in it and then we’d put it in a Waring blender or a Vitamix and modernize it, and then we put it in a bag and shoot it up. One of our patients rear ends. So that’s a fecal transplant, so it’s now actually recognized therapy. So this woman in England had a fecal transplant. We like to try to get a close relative, because it turns out that people who live together share their same microbiome so, and it turns out one of the theories of why fat families are fat is that you all share the same obese, microbiome and skinny.

Families are skinny because you share skinny microbiome and it’s not willpower as it’s you’ve, you’re being controlled. So this woman marathon runner gets fecal transplant. It’s cured of C difficile from a nice. Now her niece was about thirty pounds overweight within a year. The marathon runner, despite returning to marathon running gained 30 pounds, ate exactly the same foods that she did before, because she’s a healthy runner well how’d.

She do all that. Well, it turns out there’s another really interesting twist to the son, and we talk about a lot in the plant paradox. The obese mice are obese, not only because they have bugs that make them seek out other food, but the bad bugs are actually very efficient at extracting food from the things you swallow and, sadly, they’re actually very efficient at passing it on to you. In other words, they’re the gateway, and so even though this marathon runner was eating pretty much the same thing and believe it or not were not.

The skinny mice were being fed the same rat chow that they were getting before they were given the obese mice bacteria. They all gained weight because these bugs were very efficient extracting calories, but then passing it into things that we could have soared now. What’s really interesting is the good guys they actually, if you will, or rather greedy and don’t want to share, and so they take the foods that we give them.

Particularly inulin and Ola go saccharides and they do two things with it. They make more bugs more kids and they make a particular kind of fad that are called short chain fatty acids that are called and the most important one is sorry butyrate now butyrate gets its name from butter or butter gets its name from butyrate. There’s a little bit of butyrate in butter. Now, don’t turn off the set and go running for the kitchen and get some hot buttered popcorn, there’s very little butyrate in butter.

But there’s some there and one of my colleagues has become famous for bulletproof coffee, which has butter in it, and that’s why it’s in there anyhow butyrate it turns out, is the primary fuel for neurons and, more importantly, it’s the primary fuel for the mitochondria. In all of our cells, but in particular in neuro and you’ll, see that the more butyrate producing bugs you have the better, your health and the better, your brain and the better your energy levels, because of what the mitochondria are getting okay.

So these guys take everything you eat, make some butyrate in exchange, oh by the way butyrate. If you listen to the last lecture is essential for the cells that line our gut has their main fuel supply and the more butyrate they get the plumper and healthier and happier they are and the better off you are long-term, the bugs the additional bugs come out. Your rear end, and then you have Terry walls looking down at that giant, coiled snake in her toilet, so they took most of the food you ate and made more of them.

So it’s a win-win. They give you, in exchange this incredible, clean burning fuel source that helps plump up. Your gut makes your brain happy, make sure mitochondria work and they take most of everything and make more bugs and you poop them out, and you stay thin and again. That’s why you could have someone like me, who you know lost 70 pounds doing this or Kelly Clarkson who lost 37 and a half pounds without exercising and people say, that’s a miracle how’d you do that.

Well, she got rid of her gang members by starving them to death. The good guys moved in they ate most of what she swallowed and in return they gave her what she needed to go on, and so what we see with most people is that the weight loss is basically a side effect of getting your gut back into order And it’s a side effect you don’t have to. This is not about deprivation. This is not about. Oh, you know, I’ve got to have willpower.

Will power comes from here? The willpower you want actually comes from here when you’ve got text messages from your good bugs saying you know feed me the stuff I want and the bad bugs are no longer giving you information to seek out the stuff that they want. Okay, now as most of it, so let me actually so good took good time to talk about glyphosate or roundup. Roundup is now ubiquitous in all Americans.

All North Americans, roundup, used to be most people have heard of roundup, is what we spray on our weeds in the garden. The yard, but roundup was originally developed for GMO. Soybeans and roundup is an herbicide. It kills plants, and it does so by blocking a hilarious pathway, called the Shikha mate pathway and it allows plant cells to divide and reproduce it. Humans do not use the Shikha mate pathway, and so, when Monsanto invented roundup, they assured us that roundup was perfectly safe, because we don’t have the sugar make pathway to make cells.

What they didn’t tell us is that bacteria use the sugar made pathway to reproduce, and so roundup initially was sprayed on soybeans subsequently was sprayed on corn canola and sugar beets. Now roundup is sprayed on almost all conventional grain crops as a harvesting agent, and I won’t bore you with details, but it’s much easier to harvest corn or soybeans or wheat or rice or canola. If the plants already dead makes it far easier to separate the seed from the plant, so now roundup is sprayed on conventional crops so that these very expensive harvesters can be at a particular field on a particular day when the crop is dead now, so this is Then so now roundup is on all of these products, its then fed to our animals as fee.

Now nobody goes around with each individual kernel wipes off the roundup. It goes into the animals. It then becomes part of the meat, whether it’s a chicken, whether it’s pork, whether it’s beef, it’s now part of the beef, then it also goes into our feet. It goes into all of our cereal products, all of our bread products, all of our soybean products. It goes into almost everything we goes into all of our corn products, and so we are, it goes into our wine.

Almost all California, wines have glyphosate, including a few of our organic wines, because the fields next to the organic fields were sprayed with glyphosate. In fact, I was talking to Hawaiian maker in Santa Barbara County a couple months ago and we were looking at their biodynamic and organic and was look. We were looking at one map of his field and I said well now how about this one? He said. No, we can’t certify it as Ganic and biodynamic, even though we treat it that way, and I said well, why not? He said one could see this parcel in here at this bar, so they they spray.

You know with with Roundup, and so we know the wind drifts it and we won’t sort of point certified. So what happens now is roundup in almost everything we eat number one kills our microbiome period. Now we now know from some new research from MIT that roundup, in and of itself breaks tight junctions, which we learned about on the last lecture or what separates the outside world in our gut from us, so roundup in itself produces leaky gut.

But what’s worse, is these gut bacteria are essential to take the building blocks of serotonin and melatonin the serotonin, the feel-good hormone melatonin, the chill-out hormone and take those essential building blocks away, and so the gut bugs are gone. They no longer have the building blocks, so they can’t make serotonin and they can’t make melatonin. Now there’s a third compound that some people have heard of called GABA now, gaba, there’s two hormones, the excitatory hormone, which is dopamine.

Anybody who is addicted to a article game is looking for a dopamine charge. Any gambler is looking for a dopamine hit, gaba is the calm down or mo it tells things. The nurse chill out. Gaba we now know, is also made primarily by gut bugs. So is it any wonder that we’ve got an entire multiple generations least two generations of anxiety, depression on edge and and nothing really and nobody can sleep and it’s all because we’ve we were systematically destroy.

This frame is okay so far, but then the next problem happens. Okay, so neurons make connections with other neurons, their social network to exchange information, and they send out all these dendritic processes. I got to stand over here doing it so there’s neurons are so important that they have their own handlers, their own bodyguards and they’re called glial cells or microglial cells and they’re part of the immune system.

They’re, their white blood cells, so they’re specialized, might think of it as the secret service. These guys are so important that they they kind of care from the neuron and they protect them. Okay, so that’s great now, if our gut is leaky or if lectins and LPS’s are getting. If you remember, we’ve got a bunch of neurons down here and we also have our border patrol where most of our immune system is, and the Border Patrol’s job is to alert.

You me our rest of our immune system about a pending attack. So when lectins and LPS’s and bacteria get through our gut wall, helped by roundup text, messages which are called inflammatory, cytokines hormones are sent up to the brain and they say: oh, my gosh, you know we’re down here in the hinterlands. The walls been breached. The hordes are coming protect the neurons at all costs, so we now have some very elegant pictures, particularly from Harvard MIT instead and UCSF, where these defenders of neurons turn into pac-man and they actually eat these dendrites and prune them back, and you can think of it.

As pulling back the troops from the front lines, I like to think of it as pulling up the drawbridge over a moat as the you know, the barbarians are storming the castle, and so they can actually finally get the neuron isolated and then they get so good That they encircle the neuron to protect it and the neuron, just like you, pulled up the drawbridge on the castle. If the Horde surrounds the castle waits them out, the inhabitants will starve because they don’t have anything to eat and what we’re seeing now in dementia and Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, is these clusters of dead, neurons surrounded by their bodyguards? Now in Parkinson’s, it has a name.

It’s called a Lewy body and this is a characteristic finding of Parkinson’s disease. You know these Lewy bodies occur in a part of the brain. I love this word, the substantial nigra, it’s just a great word and that’s the motor control area of the brain and that’s where all the dopamine cells in the brain are and so the substantial nigra. We see all these Lewy bodies and, oh by the way. Besides text messages, we know that lectins climb the vagus nerve up to the brain and attack the head in head for the substantia nigra.

This has been proven in animal studies, but it’s also been proven in humans, where a number of humans used to have an ulcer operation where we cut their vagus nerve to cure their alter, and it worked pretty well actually. But these people have been followed for years and years and years and people who have had their vagus nerve have about a forty to fifty percent less chance of having Parkinson’s than people who don’t have their vagus nerve, interesting, okay, so, finally, tying it all back together.

So Lewy bodies are the hallmark of Parkinson’s, dead, neurons, surrounded by goji, berries, goji, berries, glial cells, Kouji berries, you evil got that in so researchers neurologists were wondering why Parkinson’s patients had bad constipation, they do and they said well. It must be because the vagus nerve doesn’t tell the gut to move right well, they did some animal experience and said you know we should look at the neurons in the gut because there’s lots of neurons and they got in there and control the movement.

So they started doing biopsies in animals with a model of Parkinson’s and lo and bold down here in the gut, were the dead, neurons, surrounded by glial cells, Lewy bodies, they’re down here in the gut, what the heck are they doing down there they’re supposed to be Up there, so then they took early Parkinson’s patients and do what are now called trance. Colonic biopsies, where you take a colonoscope and lots of people have had a biopsy of a polyp, but they go all the way through the wall of the Cole and bite off.

Some tissue just beyond and lo and behold in human guts of early, Parkinson’s, there’s the Lewy bodies. So what we now know is that Parkinson’s begins in your first brain in your gut and then that information is communicated to your second brain, that the war is on and protect the troops up here. So the more we learn about the first brain, the more and this important brain gets relegated. So, lastly, Alzheimer’s everybody knows about amyloid plaque.

It turns out that amyloid plaque doesn’t start in the brain. Guess where it comes from. Amoy comes from the gut and it goes to the brain. So the reason we’re having this epidemic of dementia of anxiety and depression and sleeplessness, it’s all, because our first brain has been destroyed and under assault, and our second brain is suffering for it. Questions two reasons: almost all the dinosaurs on the market.

You have an artificial sweetener that causes gut dysbiosis. It actually makes bad bugs flourish and good bugs go away. Perhaps equally as important is you have no sugar receptors on your tongue? You have sweet receptors and they’re. There, two-thirds of your tongue are sweet receptors, they’re there to tell your brain that you just hit a fruit tree and that it’s summer and the brain ought to be ready for a bunch of sugar because you just ate it.

So when you taste something that doesn’t have any sugar, the brain says: ok, I’m waiting for the sugar. It should be here any second. Now, hmm it didn’t arrive. You got cheated, go back and get some more because I know the next time. You’ll get it right. So it makes you want more sugar or another diet drink. That’s why I was addicted to diet coke. I was drinking eight diet cokes a day. In fact, there’s pictures of me throughout every Hospital of ever been in making rounds with a diet, coke, and I mean it was my signature and actually I was addicted to it by the professor who trained me.

He was a tab addict, but so your your brain never gets the message. I mean you keep saying what Sam and go get some more go, get some more and that’s what addicts you okay! Well!

A mushroom, the fleshy sport bearing fruit body of a fungus typically produced above ground on soil or on its food source. Typical mushrooms, are the fruit bodies of members of the order. Agaric ales, whose type genus is the carricus and type species, is the field mushroom agaricus compastris. However, in modern classifications, not all members of the order, agaricals produce, mushroom fruit bodies and many other guilt, fungi collectively called mushrooms, occur in other orders of the class agarico.

My cities, many species of mushrooms, seemingly appears overnight growing or expanding rapidly. This phenomena is the source of many common expressions in the english language, including too mushroom or mushrooming meaning expanding rapidly in size or scope, and to pop up like a mushroom. Alright, let’s discuss the health benefits of mushrooms. Before we start, I want to clarify that although the research on animals showed potential health benefits, however, clinical evidence of efficacy in humans has not been confirmed.

Benefit number one: anti-cancerous properties, proteoglycan isolated from edible mushroom, agaricus, bisporus, activates, natural killer cells, nk cells and induces gene expression of nitric oxide by transcription factor and nf kappa, b, signaling pathway. Further, these activated nk cells means natural killing. Cells may help to kill cancer cells benefit number two anti-diabetic properties of mushrooms, grifola from dosa mushroom, rich in vanadium, shows hypoglycemic activity.

In addition, research showed that the bioactive compound of white button mushroom that is agaricus bisporus decreases. The blood sugar level in animals therefore may be helpful in treating diabetes in humans. However, clinical evidence of efficacy in humans has not been confirmed. Benefit number three mushrooms against cardiovascular diseases. The extract of the agaricus bisporus inhibits the function of angiotensin, which converts the enzymes responsible for cardiovascular diseases in humans, thereby may reduce the chances of cardiovascular diseases.

This study was conducted on animals and there is no concrete evidence for its efficacy on cardiovascular diseases, for humans benefit number four effects of mushroom on immunity. Immune stimulation by edible mushrooms occurs via innate immunity pathways. It is typically done by activating phagocytic cells that helps to strengthen our immune system against, invading pathogens, benefit number five hepatoprotective activity of mushrooms, the liver, plays an important role in detoxification of toxic compounds, and research showed that the secondary metabolites of mushrooms have protective effects against Liver dysfunction, thereby protecting livers from these deadly chemicals.

Alright, that was all about the major health benefits of mushroom. If you like the article, please do subscribe to the blog. Thank you and take care you



Stupid Crap My Fellow Vegans Say: Superfoods

The thing about this is that what makes the superfoods list varies from one source to the next, which is why the whole idea of superfoods in itself is unreliable. How does the idea of superfoods apply to veganism? Well, thanks to the likes of Heather, lounsberry and Kathy Freston, a lot of vegans buy into the idea that food essentially has magical powers, and now we have the high-carbohydrate low-fat movement made up of vegans, who believe we should get most of our calories from carbohydrates.

The line of thinking here is: go vegan, preferably high. Carb, low fat and you’ll never get sick again. Ergo no need for medicine that works anyway. Our doctors, those who’ve, been to medical school and don’t but vegans can still get cancer, for instance, and germ theory still applies to us. The bottom line who does not have magical powers? Yes, he healthy, but understand that doing so will not prevent you from getting sick.

Nor stop your body from being a death trap. Use your head!

Superfoods: How to grow your own Micro-Greens. ‘Manna – The Ubuntu Living Show’

I can’t emphasize the beginning of us enough on how important it is for you to get into growing your own stuff, and one of the most amazingly simple and powerfully nutritious things you can grow is sunflower greens.

So what I’m going to do is I’m going to just within a few minutes. Give you the whole process by showing you exactly how easy it is to grow sunflower greens in your own garden in your own home. Even if you don’t have a garden, you can do this on a windowsill in your house, so you don’t have to have a garden to grow your own food either. Sunflower greens are one of the most nutritious microgreens you can have now.

A sprout is a little seed, that’s just sprouted, but a micro green is a sprout. That’s allowed to grow in soil for a couple of days. So what I’m going to show you today is how to quickly and easily set up a tray to grow. Sunflower greens for you now these are the sunflower greens on the table here, and the thing about them is they’re around 30 times more nutritious than normal salad, and you can have one bowl of salad or you can have a tiny ball of sunflower greens and those Sunflower greens are going to give you the same if not more nutrients, that’s what I’m talking about at IAO to eat less and get more.

So that’s why I want to eat sunflower greens. They are incredibly high in nutritional value. So let me go through the process of how to actually grow it. It’s very easy to grow it. You only need a few things that you can get from most nurseries and they’re all very inexpensive. Let me run through what I have on the table here. First thing: you’re going to get us some soil. This is organic, seedling mix that I got from a nursery.

I like seedling, mix cuz, it’s fine, so that the seedlings don’t have to work very hard to get their roots into the ground and to get the little heads out of the soil. You can’t use compost to always make sure that it’s organic, then they haven’t used chemical fertilizers because those will burn the roots of your plants and they’re not going to be happy next thing. You’re going to need are trays. Now these trays, I got from a nursery and they’re, really inexpensive, little back black trays, and you can buy a couple of those and have them on hand for whenever you want to grow your sunflower greens and then lastly, you would need a base to catch the Water in in this base, you can also get from nurseries, but you can also get it at a lot of bigger shops.

They do stock them now. You can see these to fit quite nicely in the base and the reason I want the base is when I’m watering, I don’t want the water to flush all the nutrients out and away. I want the water to stay in the tray so that the greens can draw out the nutrients from the water and it’s not all washing away. Lastly, and maybe most importantly, is the seed you need to get some sunflower seeds now, if you look at these sunflower seeds, they still have the shell on them.

Now. What I found is that when they still have the shell on them, they sprout a lot better. You don’t have to have them once the shell and you’ll even see there are a couple in here that have been shelled already. They will sprout, even if they are shelled, but I’d like to use the shelled ones, because you just get more of them sprouting. Okay, so how do we do this? The first thing you want to do is: take your seat and put that seed in water.

You can use a glass jar plastic tubs, some kind of some kind of bottle about so big put the seeds in there and then cover it with water and let it stand overnight. That’s soaking the seeds so that it activates the seats of the seed will sprout now you’re going to do that for about 12 hours, the soaking sorry and then, once the seeds are soaked wash the water away and then leave them damp in the same jar.

For another day around about what you’ll find is that a little tail is going to come out of the end of the seed out of the end of the seeds. You’ll find a little tail growing and that’ll tell you that you’ve got seed that will grow and that’ll also give the seed a head start for when you actually plant it into the soil. Okay. Now what this does is, if you’ve got a whole bunch of seed, and you put it all in the soil and you cover it all up, and you got all that trouble and none of the seed sprouts, because it’s dead seed or its irradiated seed you’ve wasted A huge amount of time so soaking it and sprouting it first is essential because it allows you to make sure that your seed will grow so sprouting it like that.

It’s exactly the way that Joseph grows, these sprouts with kitchen-garden, and actually I used some of his big bottles to sprout my seeds. It’s the best thing because you’ve got the mesh on top and it’s easy to then drain the seed and pop it back on again. So definitely that’s a great system to use to sprout your your seeds before you’re, going to plant them okay, but now we want to get planting. Let’s for a minutes, go we’ve soaked the seeds, we’ve sprouted the seeds.

The seeds is already now. How do we plant them? Get your trays lined up and then get your hands dirty. None of this little Spade business. You need to get your vibes into the soil, because the soil and the seeds want to know who’s, planting them and then you’re going to take your soil. You can see this nice rich, dark, seedling mix, I’m just going to take about a handful handful. At a time do that on both both trays? Okay, you just shake the tray up to get a nice even level.

You don’t put a baby to bed in a lumpy bed. You put them in a smooth made-up bed, so you want to make sure your bed is smooth. Okay, next you’ll take your seed, your seed you’re, just going to put once again about a handful or so into the center. Now these haven’t been soaked in sprouted. Yet so remember you want to soak yours and sprout yours first and then, just with your hand, spread them all the way around.

Okay. What you’re looking out for is about one layer of seed across if you’ve got too many seeds on top of each other they’re going to compete for space and if you’ve got too few seeds in there, you’re not going to get a good crop. So you want to get it, so you can see a little bit of soil sticking out whew clamping on the side, but there is space between the seeds and now the seeds are ready. So the next step – and this is a very important set – that a lot of people actually leave out when they’re trying to grow sunflower, greens – and that is you need to cover your sunflower greens of soil.

Again, there are a couple of reasons. Why do this? But the most important one is that if there are a couple of seats that haven’t sprouts – and so they don’t have the tail, if you don’t cover them, what’ll happen is they’ll go mouldy and that mold can then spread and contaminate the rest of your crop and Actually make your entire crop fail, so you want to make sure it’s covered with soil. Why does that? Stop the mold there bacteria in the soil, that’ll eat up all those moldy seeds that they won’t spread their mold into your actual crop.

Okay, so you want about a handful again, that’s so much and just cover it over the seat. You don’t want to put too much on because otherwise they’re going to have to work really hard to push through the soil, but just enough so you can’t see the seed anymore excellent. So if you have a look at that now, you can just see a few seeds. Most of them are hidden away, put and put away when they’re young like that they don’t want to get blasted by sunlight.

So it’s also a good idea to cover them with the soil. For that reason, now what would you think the next most important thing would be to do, but I seed in the soil. It’s sprouted, it’s ready to grow. What is the next thing to do? Go to water, your seats, water is essential at this point, so grab your watering bucket or your watering can and lightly water them it can soak through. But the important thing is you don’t want to blast it with a hose pipe you’re, just going to get all the seeds coming up and mixing through again so likely water everything.

Now that would be one tray and you can have a really good salad out of about half of one of these trays. I mean, if you have a look at how this has grown. It becomes a huge mess of food. If you want to do this, for a family or for yourself for a week, have a couple of these growing at one time start up, say six or seven and then when the first one is ready to eat, you can start on that one by the time.

The end one is ready to eat. It’s grown a little bit further, but that’s absolutely fine. That way you can keep rotating and you only need to plant about once a month, maybe one twice a month. I do it about every second week and then there’s enough for for my entire household to eat, sunflower greens once you start eating sunflower, greens you’ll, absolutely never look back, they’d, absolutely delicious for a salad, green and the nutrient value just makes you feel so good after Eating them, anyone who succeeds in a healthy lifestyle does so because they include high density nutrient, rich foods like this.

Yes, and now we’re going to do the important step of watering, so I’ve just gotten a watering. Can one of these will do absolutely fine fill that up with spring water, I’m just going to run a light sprinkle of water over it? Remember you don’t want to blast the seeds with water you’re, going to get them all to come out the soil, and then you going to have to cover them with soil again, such as a light sprinkling of water like so a few of the seeds will rise.

If you haven’t covered them, but most of them are covered completely and if you’re worried about it, just an extra little sprinkling will take care of all of that. There we go perfect and the amazing thing about nature. Is you just leave it and it grows, and then it gives you food there’s nothing else. You need to do all I’d say you need it on daily basis, just give it a bit of water, depending on our Hut.

It is once a day, maybe twice a day. Another important thing to remember is not to keep it in full Sun all day long. Cuz it’ll dry it very quickly in this black plastic container, so you want to keep it in a place where it gets half Sun or maybe two hours of sunlight in a day, but no more than that water. It once a day it’ll be ready for. You need probably within around seven to ten days and you’ll, see all the greens coming up and growing out.

The batch I have yeah is and around 14 days already, and you pull one of these out, you see how amazing they grow to a huge sprout. Look at the size of that now that’s about perfect to eat and that you can just eat exactly as you need lettuce or salad. It’s absolutely delicious! Now one thing to look out for when you’re growing, a sunflower greens. How do you know if they’ve gone too far if they’ve grown too long, simple way to tell us that there’ll be a second leaf that comes out the center? Now, when the second leaf comes out, this is quite bitter, so you can still eat the sprout at this point, but you want to really clip that leaf off so that you left with just the two original leaves that grew, and these are the sweet, tasty ones, But this is the bitter one so leave that one out take that and then put that in your salad, but it’s absolutely usable even up till not just three weeks after you’ve planted it excellent.

It’s been amazing to be able to share how to make this with you. I can’t emphasize enough get growing sunflower greens, the nutritional value you’re going to get is phenomenal out of it. Oh before I forget, there’s an incredible way: it’s a secret way of making your sunflower greens hold more minerals than any other salad you can buy in the shops. How would you do that? It’s one of the ultimate fertilizers ever discovered and it’s almost free or it could be absolutely free intrigued now.

What I do is once they’ve grown out of the soil, so maybe about so high just so you can see the green leaves. I take my water in. Can and I put two tablespoons of rock salt or sea salt into the water mix it through with the water and then water with a sea salt solution. Now sea salt has all 92 minerals in it that we need for nutrition. All the minerals we required. So once you order it, the the roots which are now formed can actually absorb all those minerals that we need into them and you can eat this.

So it’s an incredible way of getting all those extra minerals into your diet without anything to take supplements. So remember one maybe two tablespoons level of sea salt into about a five liter watering can mix that through and water that now in this situation, you can water every single day because the waters not leaking out. But if you’ve got a vegetable garden, you want to be careful because too much salt can actually damage certain plants, sunflower, green and also wheatgrass.

It’s very happy with a lot of salt. So it’s it’s pretty unlikely you’re going to kill them, and I haven’t yet – and I’ve put a lot of salt in mine, so we cross is exactly the same way. The way we’ve just grown, sunflower greens grow wheatgrass. In exactly the same way you get wheat seed. Instead of sunflower seed and the process is exactly the same, wheatgrass will grow up into grass, you’ll cut it you’ll juice it, and you can have that as an incredible nutrient boost excellent.

Well, that’s about it! It’s very simple! By the things it’s going to cost very little money to get all things together, get making it and you’re going to actually love this taste enjoy best. Oh
