The Importance of Vitamin K2

I recently listened to one of those infomercials that promised to solve every health problem under the sun.  I ended up paying quite a bit to buy their reports because they mentioned one “little” thing that has been causing me quite a lot of problems.  They mentioned calcification.  When I got the reports, I looked through them eagerly to find the answer to what causes calcification to occur where it isn’t supposed to be.  The answer was at the back of one of the smaller books I received.

The Bulletproof Diet

This great diet is something like Paleo Atkins meets high tech.  Dave Asprey, the author of this diet, spent many years researching and experimenting on himself to come up with this plan.  He communicated with leading edge doctors and scientists, and he invested a substantial amount of his own funds on equipment and testing in his quest to get the truth about what really works with respect to diet and health.

Antibiotics and weight gain

I recently did a course of the antibiotic Azithromycin to treat an ear infection. I dreaded the thought of unbalancing my system, but the infection was affecting my hearing. The thought of losing my hearing to an infection was out of the question.

Anyway, soon after taking the antibiotic, I noticed that my weight was beginning to go up again. Continue reading »

Diet for an Irradiated Planet

It seems that the rules for what is optimal in a diet change when radiation is present in the environment, as it is now since the Fukushima Daiichi event on March 11, 2011.  A great amount of radiation has been released into the atmosphere and water since that time, and the release has not stopped.  This has resulted in the contamination of not just the local area, but much of the Pacific Ocean and Northern Hemisphere.

Ice Cream!

ice-cream-makerI finally after many months of consideration bought a Cuisinart ICE-21 Ice Cream Maker.  Why, oh, why did I wait?  It has turned out to be one of my favorite kitchen appliances.  Not only is this appliance very easy to use, but I can now make my own low-carb high-fat ice creams that fit the guidelines of my desired diet.  Specifically, this means that I can have ice cream made with natural no- or low-calorie sweeteners such as stevia and xylitol.  Let me be clear here that the ice creams are not less expensive that ice cream available in your local supermarket; rather, my purpose in making my own ice cream is to obtain a nutritionally superior product while accommodating my sweet tooth.

Hormones and Fat

It has long been taught in health orthodoxy that a low-fat diet was ideal for preventing disease; but more and more, this idea is being called into question.  As more and more new research comes in, the orthodox medical establishment has had to grudgingly admit that perhaps their theories have been wrong all along.  On the weight maintenance side of things, we have been taught that higher intake of dietary fat makes us gain body fat, but research is now showing that the opposite may be the case.

Shifting Needs

I think I have figured out why there has been so much confusion about what is the optimal diet.  It has a lot to do with the fact that our physical vibration is changing as the Earth moves into a new dimension.  Higher frequencies have different needs. Continue reading »
