The very best way to lose weight is to limit starchy and sugary carbs eat less and exercise more but:

a little help...
The first natural product that aids in weight loss is CLA~Conjugated Linoleic Acid
An Important essential fatty acid.

Linoleic acid is an essential fatty acid which produces prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are found in every cell and are important to maintaining health. Numerous clinical studies appear to show that CLA improves body composition by reducing fat while preserving muscle tissue. Tonalin® is the licensed brand name of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). CLA is an omega-6 fatty acid first discovered in the early 80’s that continues to be studied for its diverse applications in promoting good health. Tonalin® CLA is made through a proprietary process that converts the linoleic acid derived from safflower oil to conjugated linoleic acid.

Tonalin® CLA is a safe, scientifically proven, effective nutritional supplement that contains no stimulants of any kind. One of the most significant reasons for obesity in America could be due to a CLA deficiency. While the only way to get CLA in food is through meat and dairy products, it has been shown that CLA content in our food has decreased by 60% over the past 40 years. This is due to the current feeding practices of cattle farms. CLA has been shown in numerous studies to reduce body fat while increasing lean muscle mass.

Studies have shown that CLA inhibits lipoprotein lipase, an enzyme that breaks down fat from our diet so that it can be absorbed and stored in the body. By suppressing this enzyme, CLA helps reduce the amount of fat deposited and stored throughout the body. To summarize, studies have shown that CLA reduces body fat in four ways.

<>By decreasing the amount of fat that is stored after eating
<>By increasing the rate of fat breakdown in fat cells
<>By increasing the rate of fat burning
<>By decreasing the total number of fat cells
available at Conjugated Linoleic Acid


L-Carnitine is made in the body from the amino acids lysine and methionine. It increases the use of fat as an energy source by transporting fatty acids into the mitochondria, where they are ‘burned’ to release energy for body functions. The L-carnitine form may cause adverse side effects however. It is available in several different forms including propionyl-L-carnitine and acetyl-L-carnitine. Propionyl-L-carnitine, through its enhancement of metabolism has been proven to prevent ischemia-induced heart dysfunction, and acetyl-L-carnitine has been suggested to delay the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. L-carnitine is found naturally in avocados, breast milk, dairy products, red meats (namely lamb and beef), and tempeh (fermented soybean product). A deficiency of L-Carnitine can cause muscle fatigue, cramps, or low blood-sugar levels.
How This Supplement Works in Your Body:
<>Promotes normal growth and development
<>Possible treatment for (and maybe prevention of) some forms of cardiovascular <>disease
<>May protect against muscle disease
<>May help build muscle
<>May protect against liver disease
<>May protect against diabetes
<>May protect against kidney disease
Potential diet aid
<>May make low-calorie diets easier to tolerate by reducing feelings of hunger and weakness
<>May increase energy and activity in people with congestive heart disease

Please note the legal language here "May protect", "may make", "Possible treatment", yet the anecdotal evidence is that for many people L-Carnitine does help them lose weight and get healthier, taken in moderation, of course and only if you don't eat the foods rich in it often.

Breast milk
Dairy products
Red meats (namely lamb and beef)
Tempeh (fermented soybean product)

<>Regulates fat metabolism.
<>Provides energy for the muscles.
<>May provide some benefits for people with heart disease, muscular dystrophy and chronic fatigue.
<>Can significantly impact cholesterol levels.
<>May reduce angina (chest pain).
For weight loss I'm takingcoconut oil

to help my alkalizing and weight loss.

cell power
to great effect~ it REALLY WORKS for reversing diabetes and blood pressure too, in addition to regulating my pH so my body will be in a healthy state. I've had a lot of success with this and it's helped me tremendously in so many ways including giving me healthier teeth and gums, My teeth are whiter and gums are firmer and healthier, is it the cell power[tm]? I believe it is.

BRILLIANT! These are answers given by 2nd grade school children to the following questions!!

What kind of little girl was your mom?

1. My mom has always been my mom and none of that other stuff.

2. I don't know because I wasn't there, but my guess would be pretty bossy.

3. They say she used to be nice.

What did mom need to know about dad before she married him?

1. His last name.

2. She had to know his background. Like is he a crook? Does he get drunk on beer?

3. Does he make at least $800 a year? Did he say NO to drugs and

YES to chores?

Why did your mom marry your dad?

1. My dad makes the best spaghetti in the world. And my Mom eats a lot.

2. She got too old to do anything else with him.

3. My grandma says that Mom didn't have her thinking cap on.

Who's the boss at your house?

1. Mom doesn't want to be boss, but she has to because dad's such a goof ball.

2. Mom. You can tell by room inspection. She sees the stuff under the bed.

3. I guess Mom is but only because she has a lot more to do than dad.


A piece of string walks into a bar. He orders a beer, but the bartender says, "Hey, we don't serve string in here! Get out!".

Humbled but unfazed, the string walks out to the street and twists himself about, throws himself askew, even tears himself asunder and anewone, until he looks perfectly ragged. He assumes a loose pretzel shape and walks back in.

The bartender sees him immediately and snaps, "Hey, I told you we don't serve string in here!"

The string fires back, "But I'm not a piece of string! No, I'm a frayed knot!"

~~~bonus joke
John ran a fertilized egg business. He had hundreds of pullets and eight or 10 roosters. The farmer kept records so he could replace underperforming roosters. He attached bells to them so he could tell which roosters were performing. The farmer's favorite rooster was Butch.
On day John noticed Butch's bell hadn't rung at all. So he investigated. The pullets would hide when they heard the roosters coming. Butch had his bell in his beak so it couldn't ring. That allowed him to sneak up on the pullets.
John had a great idea. He entered Butch in the county fair. He won the "No Bell Prize" and the "Pulletsurprise."

Sorry it's another downer topic. But then diabetes is a downer thing altogether.

Diabetic eye disease, caused by diabetes, is a leading cause of blindness and vision loss. Diabetic eye disease refers to a group of eye problems that people with diabetes may face as a complication of this disease. All can cause severe vision loss or even blindness.

Diabetic eye disease may include:

<>Diabetic retinopathy -- damage to the blood vessels in the retina.

<>Cataract -- clouding of the eye's lens.

<>Glaucoma -- increase in fluid pressure inside the eye that leads to optic nerve damage and loss of vision

To bring this home I want to assure you that only having had diabetes a short time does not mean one is immune to diabetic catastrophe. I have had my eyes examined and have no retonopathy yet, My eye doc said that the times my vision was blurry wasa the times my blood glucose was very high. Now that I have managed to control my blood glucose, I no longer worry so much about my eyes. Oh and btw my control is by diet and exercise I take very little insulin.

Diabetic retinopathy is progressive damage to the eye's retina caused by long-term diabetes. It can cause blindness.

Causes, incidence, and risk factors Return to top

Diabetic retinopathy is caused by damage to blood vessels of the retina, the light-sensitive outer layer of the eye. It is classified as non-proliferative or proliferative.

Non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy is the early stage of the disease and is less severe. The existing blood vessels in the eye start to leak fluid into the retina, which leads to blurred vision.
Proliferative retinopathy is the more advanced form of the disease, and more severe. New blood vessels start to grown within the eye. These new vessels are fragile and can bleed (hemorrhage), which may cause vision loss and retinal scarring.
Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness in working-age Americans. People with both type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes are at risk for this condition.

The likelihood and severity of retinopathy increase the longer you have diabetes, and is likely to occur earlier and be more severe if your diabetes is poorly controlled. Almost everyone who has had diabetes for more than 30 years will show signs of diabetic retinopathy.

Symptoms Return to top

One of the first symptoms of diabetic retinopathy is poor night vision. Other symptoms include:

"Floaters" (spots in front of one's eyes)
Blurred vision
However, many people have no symptoms before major bleeding occurs in the eye. This is why everyone with diabetes should have regular eye exams.

Diabetes causes damage to the small blood vessels that nourish the retina, the seeing part at the back of the eye. In people with diabetes the retinal blood vessels may expand and leak fluid. This is an early form of diabetic retinopathy called nonproliferative or background retinopathy. You may not notice any change in your vision when you develop this early form of the disease, but it can lead to other more serious forms of retinopathy that affect your vision.

When fluid collects in the macula (the part of the retina that allows us to see fine details), reading and other close work may become difficult. This is called macular edema.

In other people fragile new blood vessels may grow on the surface of the retina. This is termed proliferative retinopathy. These new blood vessels can lead to serious vision problems, because they can break and bleed into the vitreous. (The vitreous is the clear, jelly-like substance that fills the center of the eye.) When the vitreous becomes clouded with blood, light is prevented from passing through the eye to the retina. This causes sudden loss of vision.


<>To keep the blood sugar at low normal levels, not so much by using lots of insulin but by controlling eating and getting lots of exercise.

<>Get regular eye exams to know how well you are doing towards keeping your vision healthy.

and to keep those tiny capillaries free flowing to contnue to nourish the delicate eyes take bilberry

Bilberry (Vaccinum myrtillus) is a European berry shrub very similar to the blueberry or huckleberry found in the United States. Like most herbal supplements, the use of Bilberry goes back centuries with medicinal usage recorded as early as the beginning of the 16th century. It’s primary usage then was to treat diarrhea and stomach problems. Bilberry’s modern usage began in earnest during World War II. The story is told that British and U. S. pilots began eating bilberries as part of their diet. They soon discovered a marked improvement in their night vision as they flew missions over Europe.

Since then extensive research has identified the specific vital ingredients in Bilberry and verified their beneficial actions for the eyes and circulatory system. Bilberry is high in a substance called flavonoids, chemically known as polyphenols. Bilberry’s flavonoids are anthocyanosides that enhance microcirculation throughout the body. Research has shown this effect to be particularly noticeable in the delicate blood vessels supplying the retina of the eye. The retina is where the major functions of vision occur.

As a supplement, Bilberry plays an important role in improving and maintaining eye health. Bilberry is a common treatment for many varieties of retinopathy, a disorder in which the intricate blood vessels and nerves of the retina are damaged. In France, bilberries have been prescribed since 1945 for diabetic retinopathy, a major cause of blindness in diabetics.

Numerous studies have documented Bilberry’s usefulness as a medicinal herb. One study concluded that bilberry extract used in conjunction with Vitamin E prevented the progression of cataracts in 48 of 50 patients suffering from cataracts. In an Italian study, bilberry’s flavonoids lowered cholesterol levels and improved circulation. Bilberry has been used in treatments for glaucoma, macular degeneration, eye fatigue, poor night vision and nearsightedness.

Our Standardized Bilberry Extract is meticulously manufactured under strict European quality control standards without the use of harsh solvents. It is extracted to provide an optimal level of 25% naturally occurring anthocyanidins. Additionally, it contains a full spectrum of components as they occur naturally in fresh whole bilberries. Red Grape Skin Extract and Citrus Bioflavonoids work synergistically to enhance the proven benefits of Bilberry Extract.

The absoilute best way to protect your blood pressure, kidneys and eyesight from diabetic damage is to reverse the diabetes. I'm using cell power
to great effect~ it REALLY WORKS for reversing diabetes and blood pressure too, in addition to regulating my pH so my body will be in a healthy state. I've had a lot of success with this and it's helped me tremendously in so many ways including giving me healthier teeth and gums, My teeth are whiter and gums are firmer and healthier, is it the cell power[tm]?

~~And NOW the Jokes!~~~
very punny
1) King Ozymandias of Assyria was running low on cash after years of war with the Hittites. His last great possession was the Star of the Euphrates, the most valuable diamond in the ancient world. Desperate, he went to Croesus, the pawnbroker, to ask for a loan. Croesus said, "I'll give you 100,000 dinars for it". "But I paid a million dinars for it", the King protested. "Don't you know who I am? I am the king!" Croesus replied, "When you wish to pawn a Star, makes no difference who you are".

2) Evidence has been found that William Tell and his family were avid bowlers. Unfortunately, all the Swiss league records were destroyed in a fire, and so we'll never know for whom the Tells bowled.

3) A man rushed into a busy doctor's office and shouted, "Doctor! I think I'm shrinking!!". The doctor calmly responded, "Now, settle down. You'll just have to be a little patient".

4) A marine biologist developed a race of genetically engineered dolphins that could live forever if they were fed a steady diet of
seagulls. One day his supply of the birds ran out so he had to go out and trap some more. On the way back, he spied two lions asleep on the road. Afraid to wake them, he gingerly stepped over them. Immediately, he was arrested and charged with transporting gulls across sedate lions for immortal porpoises.

5) Back in the 1800's the Tates Watch Company of Massachusetts wanted to produce other products, and since they already made the cases for watches, they used them to produce compasses. The new compasses were so bad that people often ended up in Canada or Mexico rather than California. This, of course, is the origin of the expression, "He who has a Tates is lost!"

6) A thief broke into the local police station and stole all the toilets and urinals, leaving no clues. A spokesperson was quoted as saying, "We have absolutely nothing to go on".

7) An Indian chief was feeling very sick, so he summoned the medicine man. After a brief examination, the medicine man took out a long, thin strip of elk rawhide and gave it to the chief, telling him to bite off, chew, and swallow one inch of the leather every day. After a month, the medicine man returned to see how the chief was feeling. The chief shrugged and said, "The thong is ended, but the malady lingers on".

8 ) A famous Viking explorer returned home from a voyage and found his name missing from the town register. His wife insisted on complaining to the local civic official who apologized profusely saying, "I must have taken Leif off my census".

9) There were three Indian squaws. One slept on a deer skin, one slept on an elk skin, and the third slept on a hippopotamus skin. All three became pregnant, and the first two each had a baby boy. The one who slept on the hippopotamus skin had twin boys. This just goes to prove that the squaw of the hippopotamus is equal to the sons of the squaws of the other two hides.

10) A skeptical anthropologist was cataloging South American folk remedies with the assistance of a tribal brujo who indicated that the leaves of a particular fern were a sure cure for any case of constipation. When the anthropologist expressed his doubts, the brujo looked him in the eye and said, "Let me tell you, with fronds like these, who needs enemas?"


Just in case you need a laugh: Remember it takes a college degree to fly a plane but only a high school diploma to fix one.

After every flight, Qantas pilots fill out a form, called a "gripe sheet," which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems, document their repairs on the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight.

Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of humor. Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by Qantas' pilots (marked with a P) and the solutions recorded (marked with an S) by maintenance engineers.

By the way, Qantas is the only major airline that has never, ever, had an accident.

P: Left inside main tire almost needs replacement.
S: Almost replaced left inside main tire.

P: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough.
S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.

P: Something loose in cockpit.

P: Dead bugs on windshield.
S: Live bugs on back-order.

P: Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200 feet per minute descent.
S: Cannot reproduce problem on ground.

P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.
S: Evidence removed.

P: DME volume unbelievably loud.
S: DME volume set to more believable level.

P: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick.
S: That's what friction locks are for.

P: IFF inoperative in OFF mode.
S: IFF always inoperative in OFF mode.

P: Suspected crack in windshield.
S: Suspect you're right.

P: Number 3 engine missing.
S: Engine found on right wing after brief search.

P: Aircraft handles funny.
S: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right, and be serious.

P: Target radar hums.
S: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics.

P: Mouse in cockpit.

I've known lots of diabetics, young and old, skinny and fat, men and women and I've seen many having to undergo dialysis for kidney complications.

The Kidneys function as filters for the drinks we take in and sifting liquid from our foods and expelling it out through the bladder. When a body is overloaded by having diabetes the kidneys must work overtime to eliminate all the extra fluids that a diabetic drinks to accomodate increased thirst.

What does diabetes do to the kidneys? Diabetes may damage the blood vessels in your kidneys. The first sign of kidney damage is the presence of albumin (a type of protein) in the urine. A sensitive urine test for a tiny amount of albumin (microalbuminuria) helps to detect kidney damage at an early stage in
people with diabetes. Later, kidney function may decrease. Your kidney function is checked by estimating your glomerular filtration rate (GFR) from the results of your blood creatinine test. When your kidneys are damaged, they cannot clean your blood properly, and waste products build up in your blood. Your body will retain more water and salt than it should, which can result in weight gain and ankle swelling.

I used to have a bad problem with ankle swelling, but not much anymore, since being on this diet.

Each year in the United States, more than 100,000 people are diagnosed with kidney failure, a serious condition in which the kidneys fail to rid the body of wastes. Kidney failure is the final stage of kidney disease, also known as nephropathy.Diabetes is the most common cause of kidney failure, accounting for nearly 45 percent of new cases. Even when diabetes is controlled, the disease can lead to nephropathy and kidney failure. Most people with diabetes do not develop
nephropathy that is severe enough to cause kidney failure. About 18 million people in
the United States have diabetes, and more than 150,000 people are living with kidney
failure as a result of diabetes.

One important part of my decision to reverse diabetes had to do with the overwork my kidneys were suffering from, I've seen when people with dying kidneys swell up and become toxic, not a pretty sight.

There are drugs that supposedly help people avoid kidney disease but if you've been reading this a while you'll know that I don't advocate the use of anything that doesn't occur naturally in or for the body. I can't, nor can anyone else establish, for example an Aspirin deficiency so I don't take it. Certain herbs can be utilised to stimulate parts of the body that have become lazy or are just not functioning properly.

Here is something that might help Aqua flow; Supports healthy fluid balance. Stimulates the kidneys to eliminate fluid

Aqua-Flow™ offers a special combination of herbs and nutrients to provide excellent natural support for kidney and bladder function. Magnesium has been shown in clinical studies to have a beneficial effect in the kidneys and vitamin B6 enhances this effect. Potassium and sodium are essential to body functions involving fluid regulation and balance.

The plants in Aqua-Flow have a long history of use. Uva ursi (bearberry) is well known for its benefits on the urinary passages. Europeans are familiar with boldo for supporting healthy fluid balance. And Native Americans used goldenrod, which stimulates the kidneys to eliminate fluid.

Another good idea is a whole body healing systemNeutragenisis Lean and Clean.
This will help get rid of toxins that get in the way of healing.

Blood sugar support
Wuill help you get control of diabetes.

I am very enthusiastic about cell power
REALLY WORKS for blood pressure too, in addition to regulating my pH so my body will be in a healthy state.
I've had a lot of sucess with this and it's helped me tremendouly in so many ways.

Diabetes is a dis-ease that carries all of it's little friends along with it when it comes to stay in your body. High Blood Pressure is one of those.

(1)"Diabetes: High Blood Pressure
Hypertension with diabetes -- hypertension is an important risk factor for the development and worsening of many complications of diabetes, including diabetic eye disease and kidney disease. It affects up to 60% of people with diabetes.

Having diabetes increases your risk of developing high blood pressure and other cardiovascular problems, because diabetes adversely affects the arteries, predisposing them to atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Atherosclerosis can cause high blood pressure, which if not treated, can lead to blood vessel damage, stroke, heart failure, heart attack, or kidney failure.

Compared to people with normal blood pressure readings, men and women with hypertension have an increased risk of:

<>Coronary artery disease (heart disease)
<>Peripheral vascular disease (hardening of the arteries in the legs and feet)
<>Heart failure
Even high yet normal blood pressure or pre-hypertension (defined as 120-139/ 80-89) impacts your health. Studies show that people with normal yet high range blood pressure readings, over a 10 year period of follow up time, had a two to three fold increased risk of heart disease."

A low-salt diet, exercise, no smoking and a normal body weight is supposed to help keep a normal blood pressure. A high fiber diet will also help to hold down the Cholesterol and thereby help keep blood pressure down too.

(2)"Risks For People With Diabetes
Kidney damage - When high blood pressure stays high, it can damage the small filtering vessels of the kidney. Diabetes also can damage kidneys, so when combined with high blood pressure, it can become even more serious.
Heart disease and stroke - People diagnosed with diabetes have double the risk of developing heart disease or having a stroke. Diabetes increases the risk of atherosclerosis, which is the build-up of sticky plaque in the blood vessels.
That's why watching lifestyle changes such as eating less fatty food, losing weight and getting enough exercise are such an important part of keeping blood pressure in a normal range."

My blood pressure has been high also but I'm finding that cell power
REALLY WORKS for blood pressure too, in addition to regulating my pH so my body will be in a healthy state.

Alkalizing is very important as an Acid condition indicates there is a major dis-ease going on in your body, to see more about alkalizing your body see:alkalizing your body
I'm also taking coconut oil

I wish you all health and happiness, and as for getting healthy, my best advice is Just do it!

The Church Gossip...

Mildred, the church gossip and self-appointed monitor of the church's
morals, kept sticking her nose in to other people's business.

Several members did not approve of her extracurricular activities,
but feared her enough to maintain their silence.

She made a mistake, however, when she accused George, a new member, of
being an alcoholic after she saw his old pickup parked in front of the
town's only bar one afternoon.

She emphatically told George (and several
others) that everyone seeing it there would know what he was doing.

George, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just turned
and walked away. He didn't explain, defend, or deny... he said

Later that evening, George quietly parked his pickup in front of
Mildred's house... walked home... and left it there all night.

1. An attitude of scornful or jaded negativity, especially a general distrust of the integrity or professed motives of others: the public cynicism aroused by governmental scandals.
2. A scornfully or jadedly negative comment or act: "She arrived at a philosophy of her own, all made up of her private notations and cynicisms" Henry James.
3. Cynicism The beliefs of the ancient Cynics.

We all laugh at the fun the stand-up comics poke at public figures, we find the pomposity of officious officials to be hilarious, but what is the cost? I'm reading all over the net how cynicism gives rise to depression, how if everything looks bleak to someone-the cynic-then bleakness is his/her outlook generally. You can clearly see how this can effect the emotions of someone.

Always seeing the negative side of things can cause people to feel down, unhappy and restless. The world's problem are so huge that concentrating on them will give a person a sense of defeat.

I had a pastor once who said he sees the problems in this world as an ocean and he intended to take out his bucketful as he lived this life. Because that's all we can do, take out our own bucketful to effect what change he could in the short time he had to do it.

Being a Pollyanna is the opposite side of the coin:
A person regarded as being foolishly or blindly optimistic.

[After the heroine of the novel Pollyanna, by Eleanor Hodgman Porter (1868-1920), American writer.]

Balance lies somewhere in between these two extremes. To deny that anything is ever amiss will never give rise to change, but to see only problems is to see the glass completely empty.

If there is a problem, such as a major dis-ease like Diabetes, one needs to realize there is a problem to start the healing process, and "the sooner the quicker" as my grandmother used to say.

I believe that relying on the body's natural recuperative powers rather than immediately seeking a magic bullet cure will actually aid in healing, also. I rarely ever use any Nsaids because they are really not good for our bodies [they are after not naturally occurring as they are compounded in pill form], and de-sensitizing the natural pain sensors in our brains will not allow it to release endorphins to deal with the pain as nature intended. Pain relievers also make the body MORE sensitive to pain, causing a vicious circle of pill-popping and more pain.

By believing the body, which has amazing recuperative powers by the way, can heal, is one sure way to help it on the way to recovery.

Getting to the absolute healthiest state a body can be in starts by being in a natural healthy state. Our bodies were designed to be in an alkaline ph, a dis-ease is the body's reaction to being acid eating all alkalizing foods will do that, but if you are tired of eating , broccoli, and more broccoli, there Is another way: To eat a 70% alkalizing diet and taking cell power
REALLY WORKS! I've looked for a product like this for years and after taking it for a month I've found that it DOES REVERSE DIS-EASES.

(1)The pH Miracle: Balance Your Diet, Reclaim Your Health

Friday, June 22, 2007


I have searched and researched the subject and I'm convinced.

The pH Miracle: Balance Your Diet, Reclaim Your Health by Doctor R.O Young, is a book that proclaims the wisdom of alkalizing one's body with alkaline foods.

Description of book:
"Forget counting calories, fat grams, and cholesterol. Forget blood pressure, blood sugar, and hormone levels. The single most important health measurement is the pH level in your blood. Now, THE pH MIRACLE unlocks the surprisingly crucial role pH balance plays in weight loss. How acidic or alkaline your blood is (pH levels) directly affects your health and is controlled by diet. For example, if the blood becomes overly acidic from eating too much of the wrong kinds of food-wheat, bananas, meats, and cheese-it can lead to weight gain, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and more. The Youngs' program includes over 50 recipes and explains which foods to eat, which to avoid, and which supplements can help on the way towards optimal health and weight loss. In just weeks, readers will find they have more energy, feel better, and will have shed pounds and inches."

For food lists on acid/alkalizing foods see:acid/alkaline-revisited

Dr. Young recommends eating lots of broccoli, and while i love it i also love meat, especially chicken which is an acidifying food. I have found, however a solution and a product I'm really excited about, because it really works, it's not expensive and it's easy to take. It's cell power
I've looked for a product like this for years and after taking it for a month I've found that it REALLY WORKS!

A bit about cell power
Cellular Oxygenation and Detoxification may be useful for people who suffer from the following conditions:
Allergies pH imbalances Emphysema Indigestion Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) Kidney infections Chronic fatigue syndrome Skin disorders Bronchial asthma Arthritis and joint pain Short-term memory loss Fibromyalgia Viral, fungal, and bacterial infections Muscle pain , since diabetes is an acid caused dis-ease, I believe it will be helped by it too, one man claims that he is no longer a type II diabetic after taking it for two months. And that's another thing, the effects of the cell power are permanent, once you're cured, you're cured!

While I'm making to specific medical claims I hear that:

CellPower™ WILL HELP TO...
Boost Immune System Response
CellPower™ kills infectious bacteria and viruses, fungi, mold, and parasites. It has been shown to boost T-cell numbers and activity. It does not harm the beneficial flora and microorganisms needed by the body.
Speed Healing Inside and Out
CellPower™ is rapidly absorbed by the body through the mucous linings of the mouth, throat and esophagus.
CellPower™ can be used topically when diluted 1 part CellPower to 10 parts distilled water. It has been used successfully for skin rashes, acne, sunburns, cold sores, minor cuts and bruises.*

Yes, you saw right, it is good topically also, a few drops in a bit of distilled water will heal up all sorts of skin stuff.

Increase Bio-availability of Vitamins, Herbs (Reduce Hunger)
There is a natural and healthy hunger suppression that occurs when the brain senses the absorption of sufficient micro-nutrients (vitamins, minerals.)
CellPower™ increases the bio-availability of nutrients from food and supplements. It may aid in weight management as less food and calories satisfy the body's needs.
CellPower™ also increases the bio-availability of certain medicines. Check with your doctor to see if the doses of your medications can be gradually reduced as the body cleanses and strengthens.
Normalize pH Levels
An estimated 95% of the U.S. population is too acidic (less than pH 7.0) in their body's tissues and fluids. The ideal is to be slightly alkaline (pH 7.25).
CellPower™ is effective in any pH range in the body. It tends to correct the body's acid-base balance and help maintain pH in the ideal range.
Increase Cellular Respiration
Pure oxygen is needed at the cellular level.
Atmospheric oxygen has decreased from 38-50% saturation to 21% today in the air we breathe.
CellPower™ brings pure oxygen to the cellular level.
Speeds athletic recovery and helps remove lactic acid to boost performance.

You can buy this at some health-food stores but if you can't find it, accept no substitutes get the real deal at cell power health

A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her nameplate that her name is Patricia Whack.

"Miss Whack, I'd like to get a $30,000 loan to take a holiday."

Patty looks at the frog in disbelief and asks his name. The frog says his name is Kermit Jagger, his dad is Mick Jagger, and that it's okay, he knows the bank manager.

Patty explains that he will need to secure the loan with some collateral.

The frog says, "Sure, I have this," and produces a tiny porcelain elephant, about an inch tall, bright pink and perfectly formed.

Very confused, Patty explains that she'll have to consult with the bank manager and disappears into a back office.

She finds the manager and says, " There's a frog called Kermit Jagger out there who claims to know you and wants to borrow $30,000, and he wants to use this as collateral."

She holds up the tiny pink elephant. "I mean, what in the world is this?"

The bank manager looks back at her and says ...

"It's a knickknack, Patty Whack. Give the frog a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone."

I was amazed when I went to my first diabetics support group, everyone there agreed that, yes, it can be reversed, yet all they wanted to talk about was the complications they were having. Why? Because they were accepting of the death sentance. I'm not accepting this, AND I will never stop trying to get others to follow me and Just Do It! I will carry this banner forever. Maybe just one person will want to change.

Why do people just accept the death sentance of Diabetes? It is a death sentance but also a crap shoot. Yes, in the final stages there is blindness, amputations, strokes, Heart attacks, and even deadly infections. But everyone says... Ok, all together now, "It won't happen to me." The doctors treat diabetes like an ear infection that just hangs on.

Then, as happens to all diabetics they eat all the wrong foods [some very wrong foods are advocated to be eaten by the America Diabetes association!] and adjust with more insulin. But taking too much insulin is implicated in the onset of Blindness and other complications.

There is no way to stay healthy, no matter what anyone says with diabetes, but there is a way to get rid of the diabetes. A diet of 70% aklalizing foods and exercise. The answer is simple, hard to follow but simple. see the food lists on acid/alkaline revisited
for information on alkalizing foods.

I received an email from one site today here are some excerpts:

'Everybody gets arthritis...' 'It happens to the best of us. Why, I even have a touch of arthritis myself. There's no cure, but we still have a few pain drugs that haven't been pulled off the shelves.' "

And while I believe we can all be healed I'm a bit leery that one product can heal all our illnesses.

I know one diet will take care of many major dis-eases The 70% alkalizing diet, as I described in the blog entry: Acid-alkaline food lists

That's because most diseases are caused by treating the body with contempt, by eating foods that damage it. Each person has a system weakness and when the (a)proper building blocks for good health are not there, and the (b)wrong chemicals are introduced via foods again; dis-ease occurs. Each of us gets a different dis-ease, but each dis-ease has the same cause, making poor food choices, if our bodies slide into an acid condition, in that condition any number of our frailties begin to take over.

Prepared foods are really not food for our bodies, once a 'food' has been processed it is a non-food. Genetically modified foods are not foods to nourish us as they are altered to where the body doesn't recognise them as foods, these are frankenfoods. Many so-called foods we buy in the supermarkets, cereals, canned, boxed, and frozen dinners, are made up of Frankenfoods and are also prepared foods, all nutrients are boiled out, and what's left is really hazardous to our health. I haven't even gotten into fast foods yet, they are also made up of non-foods and frankenfoods, and in addition are fried in many cases in transfats, and we all know how bad they are.

(2)"Unlike other fats, trans fats are neither required nor beneficial for health.[1] Eating trans fats increases the risk of coronary heart disease.[2] For these reasons, health authorities worldwide recommend that consumption of trans fat be reduced to trace amounts. Trans fats from partially hydrogenated oils are generally considered to be more of a health risk than those occurring naturally."

Transfats are lethal, they raise cholesterol and load us up with their toxins.

(3)Many foods also contain High Fructose Corn Syrup, a fake substance that is higher in insulin negation than sugar, and unlike sugar never triggers the satiety response in the brain, so in consequence people never want to stop eating it.

HFCS is also lethal, it is a major reason so many people are obese and have contracted diabetes.

BUT, there is hope, if one begins, today, yes today is a good day, and right now is the time, to eat an alkalizing diet they can reverse their dis-ease whatever it is.

Here is what I use to help me de-acidify my body to rid myself of diabetes.

I've lost a few pounds and the other day as I passed my mirror I was shocked to notice that I have new wrinkles forming where the weight has come off my face.

Oh dear, what to do? I'm not ready to look old, I've been exercising to keep myself from getting large folds of skin from appearing all willy-nilly upon my person. And now I have wrinkles? Do I exercise my face? No, that causes wrinkles too.

Ok, I have a solution, I won't keep you in suspense.
Hydroderm's Fast Acting Wrinkle Reducer is an advanced skin-care serum that helps diminish the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of premature aging. It is a patented formula that has been clinically proven to deliver full, whole collagen molecules to the skin, an effect previously available only through injections. Collagen is a protein with a high molecular weight that cannot penetrate into skin through topical (cream) application. Hydroderm is the only product clinically proven to deliver collagen directly to the skin, without painful injections. It utilizes a patented Collagen Infusion Delivery System to achieve this result. Hydroderm fast acting wrinkle reducer

Then I found I could do something about all the cottage cheese I seem to have acquired in my fat years: Body Shape is a natural and scientific lotion that is designed to reduce the appearance of cellulite and promote tight, firm and toned skin. It utilizes the wonders of liposome technology and the power of natural nutrients to shrink cellulite-causing fat cells and restore skin to its youthful tone and texture. Liposomes are microscopic bubbles that can carry ingredients through the skin. They resemble the skin tissue itself, so absorption occurs more rapidly and effectively than conventional delivery systems. FREE TRIAL on this one too!
Body shape for cellulite

Next, well my eyes need a bit of help for those crows feet that have climbed up and taken their place as so-called 'laugh-lines' not to mention the baggage I'm carrying Under my eyes! Harrumph! It really does help me in this.
The Anti-Aging Eye Complex reduces puffiness & dark circles. This time-released product absorbs into the deep layers of the skin and reduces inflammation, and at the same time releases MgCl and Vitamin E. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protect skin from many types of damage, while MgCl is a vasodilator that encourages a consistent flow of oxygenated blood to help reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness under the eyes.Hydroderm Anti-Aging Eye Complex
another free trial that gives me a chance to see if it works or not, It does!

Now I guess I'd like to have those big smooth pouty lips you see on all the movie stars. The unique First Impression three-part system helps improve the appearance of your lips, reduce the signs of aging and protect the lips from further damage. The Day formula enhances lip volume, shape and shine. The Night formula moisturizes and heals by reducing lines, grooves and furrows. The Exfoliating formula helps gently wipe away dead skin cells and promotes renewal of lip tissue. Oh yeah I like that, no more chewed up rough lips, but nice even smooth ones, This is awesome! And it too is free to see if you like it.... I do!
First Impression Lips

Here is another product I've found very helpful: LIPOWRAP™ is unlike any other body wrap, cellulite treatment, body gel or cream on the market. It is a new conceptual product ideal for women and men who desire a beautiful, slim and firm body. The LIPOWRAP™ is applied directly on the skin to the area being targeted. There is no soaking towels or bands.. or trying to wrap yourself up like a cocoon. It is a simple application process that takes no more than 5 minutes to apply. *lose inches fast * spot reduce* reduce cellulite * stay firm while on a diet *firms flabby stomachs, waists, and midriffs *smooths dry or rough skin *reduce stress * more youthful appearance and feel younger * for Bodybuilders, athletes, and training
LIPOWRAP™ * enjoy the therapeutic values of natural herbs and minerals

When I was so fat and sick without any hope in getting well I gave no thought to my hair, or face, my clothing was chosen just for comfort, not for any style or good looks. Now I'm able to buy stylish clothing, and feel so much better about myself, I find really awful problems like not being able to sleep, or bend down to tie my shoes have disappeared, in addition the constant infection in my eyes has decreased, my vision has improved, my step is lively and I feel like I can meet each day with energy to approach the day's activities and a new outlook of confidence and optimism.

"How can this be?" you say. "What is different?" you ask Well even if you don't here goes: I eat very few carbohydrates, no prepared foods, not much protein except for chicken and eggs, lots of veggies~especially spinach, zucchini, broccoli, and avocados, carrots, onions. I am also taking acid defense

A philosopher falls asleep and dreams. In his dream, one by one, the greatest philosophers of all time stand before him and systematically state their views and arguments: Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Kant, Hume, Descartes, etc. But in each case the philosopher, dramatically pointing his finger at the presenter, was able to come up with a devastating objection that left the presenting philosopher speechless and unable to effectively reply.

In fact, the philosopher realised it was the same objection in every case - he had found the perfect philosophical move to make in conferences and colloquia. He forced himself to wake up and write the objection down on a convenient slip of paper, then he drifted dreamily back to sleep with a smile on his face. When he awoke the next morning he read the words he'd written ... "That's what you say!"

no sources today just my very valuable opinions (tee hee hee)

Friday, June 15, 2007


(1)"B vitamins. Believe it or not, a sweet potato or a spinach salad might help you beat the blues. Both are rich in folate and vitamin B6 or pyridoxine. Deficiencies in these two B vitamins, experts believe, can actually bring on the symptoms of depression. Vitamin B6 works by keeping your brain’s neurotransmitters in balance. These chemicals control whether you feel depressed, anxious, or on a steady keel.

Experts aren’t sure why folate fights the "blahs." But they do know low folate levels in your body can deepen depression, and high folate levels can help defeat it. You can find folate in most fruits and vegetables, especially spinach, asparagus, and avocados.

Eat chicken, liver, and other meats to feed your brain vitamin B6. Plant sources of the vitamin include navy beans, sweet potatoes, spinach, and bananas."

Vitamin B-6 also helps with carpal tunnel syndrome, take about 50mg or so if you aren't or can't get enough in your foods. The B-complex of vitamins is comprised of 8 water-soluble vitamins. Together they play a vital role in energy production in the body. They are critical to metabolizing carbohydrates, fats and proteins. They are also important for good muscle tone and a healthy nervous system, skin, hair eyes, mouth and liver. Vitamin B-6, also called pyridoxine, is particularly important to nerve and muscle cell health. It helps production of RNA and DNA. Together with vitamins B-12 and B-9, pyridoxine helps control blood levels of homocysteine. Homocysteine, an amino acid, has been linked to heart disease and increased risk of stroke. Vitamin B-6 has also been suggested for use in several other areas. Some studies indicate it may help reduce the severity of nausea during early pregnancy. Vitamin B-6 is an important nutrient for preventing osteoporosis. Several studies seem to show vitamin B-6 to be effective in treating symptoms of PMS, especially depression. *Preliminary research also indicates a benefit to diabetics in controlling blood sugar levels*

Because it is water soluble it won't accumulate in the body and the risk of overdosing on it is negligible.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is an important vitamin for general health. Because it is water-soluble, the body cannot store the vitamin so you must be certain to get enough daily, either through your diet or supplements like Ester C - 1000. Vitamin C is a critical component of both basic body building functions and disease prevention. It is needed for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of the body. Vitamin C is essential for the healing of wounds and the repair and maintenance of cartilage, bones and teeth. During any kind of healing process, whether it is from infection, injury, disease or surgery, the body uses large amounts of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is an antioxidant which can help block damage from free radicals.

Food sources for Vitamin C are:(2)"citrus fruits, tomatoes, cabbage-type vegetables, cantaloupe, strawberries, peppers,lettuce, potatoes, mangoes, and dark-green leafy vegetables. Considering that vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, it is easily destroyed through cooking. For this reason, fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables typically contain greater amounts of vitamin C than canned vegetables.
If you are not a fruit and vegetable eater, it will be much harder to get your
vitamin C. The other food groups, such as milk and meat, are not good sources.
Eating at least 5 servings a day of fruits and/or vegetables is a great way to get
enough vitamin C as well as other important nutrients."

Vitamin D

necessary for maintaining strong, healthy teeth and bones and for protecting against bone abnormalities such as rickets, bone-loss conditions such as osteoporosis and skin problems such as psoriasis. It does this by helping to regulate calcium and phosphorus absorption in the body. (3)"Vitamin D, calciferol, is a fat-soluble vitamin. It is found in food, but also can be made in your body after exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun Vitamin D exists in several forms, each with a different activity. Some forms are relatively inactive in the body, and have limited ability to function as a vitamin. The liver and kidney help convert vitamin D to its active hormone form"

Vitamin D does not occur in non-fortified foods the best source is assimilation of ultraviolet light from the sun, it can be extracted from cod liver oil. Vitamin D from the sun will definately keep you from being susceptible to cancers of most kinds, and is the main reason cancer is avoided by those who get a good amount of safe exposure to the sun.
Vitamin A/beta-carotene
Beta-carotene is the precursor of vitamin A and a much safer alternative to taking vitamin A. Vision and eye health. Reproduction and fertility. Helps protect the mucous membranes reducing susceptibility to infection. Necessary for growth and repair of body tissues. Current medical research shows food rich in Beta Carotene help reduce the risk of certain serious lung and oral problems. Promotes bone growth and tooth development. Helps maintain healthy skin and hair. As a powerful antioxidant, Beta Carotene destroys free radicals including singlet oxygen – an oxygen that is missing an electron and is very damaging to human tissue if not quickly scavenged.

Food sources of vitamin A are:(4)"liver, eggs and whole milk are good animal sources of vitamin A. Many orange fruits and green vegetables." Also Liver, eggs, and dairy products.
Eating a varied and whole foods diet is essential for good health and a long productive life. It is important to eat healthy foods and if you can't or have an imbalance somewhere, like Psoriasis, or diabetes, or Heart disease or anything in between you can take supplements to help you along with your health.

When I found out I was diabetic I wasn't all that worried, until I found out how damaging it is to the body. My mother said it affects every system in the body. Then she made sure I knew that she didn't worry at all about her out-of-control blood glucose levels. she did what a lot of diabetics do, ate as she pleased and adjusted her blood glucose with more and more insulin. This was until she lost her meter then just gave herself whatever she 'felt' she needed. She died last year after she lay in a hospital bed for a long time in great pain from an infection she got after her second roto-rootering of her blood vessels to help her lower limb circulation. [She'd had several toes removed and her back operated on leaving her stooped over and tippy.] The final operation was her undoing. Since she was my birth mother[I'd been adopted] I had reason to fear; my own health was deteriorating so I finally went to see a doctor to find out how to get a handle on my rapidly increasing blood sugar levels.

My doctor told me it was impossible to ever really reverse diabetes, and I'm just stubborn enough to go ahead and prove him wrong, That was in January, I've lost 35 pounds, [and I'm not only diabetic, but also over 50 and post-menopausal] and brought my blood sugar levels down an average of 180 points.

I have used several products to help me with the symptoms Optimum Diabetics

For those not able to eat a balanced diet,Optimum Diabetics is scientifically formulated to provide nutritional support for people with diabetes. Each supplement includes a complete, full-potency formulation of vitamins, minerals and standardized herbal extracts.
Optimum Diabetics Health Supplement provides the nutrients that you may be missing.

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Neutralizes free radicals. Helps regenerate Vitamins C and E increasing their effectiveness in scavenging free radicals. Used since the 1960’s in Europe for its positive effects on blood sugar levels. Key to proper metabolism of glucose in the cell. Helps limit aging effects of free radical damage. Positively affects the metabolism, leading to increased energy.

Bilberry for capillary health

Since it helps to keep the tiny blood vessels working and clear it maintains the health of the eyes and extremites to minimize the damage Diabetes can do to these areas.

Then there are the four essential minerals to eliminate diabetes damage:



and selenium.
These trace minreals help the body to heal, aid the Liver in reducing pollutants, help insulin production in the body, help to metabolize fats into muscle, and help to lower cholesteral.

Since an acid PH causes much of our inflammatory dis-eases, using Acid defensewill really help.

Of course it's better, if you can to eat a better diet see Acid-Alkaline food lists

I suggest a start off menu of an extremely low carbohydrate diet. No prepared foods, no cereals, no potatoes, breads, pastas, and of course no sugar. And since Fiber is an issue to help diabetics lots of leafy green vegetables and just to be extra careful Psyllium fiber plus

And definately probiotics
for good digestion and that candida we all seem to get with the diabetes.

I like to start off with a great Liver cleanse

I'm currently also taking Also for weight loss and getting the proper ratio of
0mega-3 to Omega-6 fats I takecoconut oilevery day.
Here is what I use to help me de-acidify my body to rid myself of diabetes.

As we all know it is not possible to heal in an atmosphere of pessimism and unrest. So today I want to discuss peace and rest and their role in healing.

This is pretty obvious but it's not exactly what I'm going for today.(1)"Sleep. A good night's sleep is essential for physical, mental and emotional health. During deep sleep the mind rests. The more autonomic and primitive parts of the brain are then able to direct all the body's available energy to the work of healing and rejuvenation."

no, more like this:
"Rest. This means simply to give yourself some quiet time - whether daily, weekly, monthly or yearly. This rest may consist of a few minutes of meditation each day, or a day of quiet each week, or a weekend retreat once in a while - whatever works for you. When sitting quietly doing nothing, you may experience your thoughts coming to mind one after another, racing a mile a minute; the head talk never seems to stop. However, with practice, you will find yourself emerging from these quiet moments feeling energized and at peace"

Some people use prayer for this quiet time, others meditation,
still others find a nice sunset and a cool spot out of the sun to be helpful to re-charge and renew their systems. For me, I like a combo of all three. As the day winds down and my labors have just about ended I find that sitting in my back yard watching the setting sun through the trees gives me inspiration to talk to God, to meditate on His word and to reflect on His Goodness.

Exercise is good, staying busy is good, but there has to come a time, in each day when it's time to wind down, to rest, to regain one's peace and to re-charge and allow the body to slow down in preparation to going to bed. Type A personalities tend to just keep going and not allow themselves to just exist. All the work will be there tomorrow, so it doesn't get done tonight, So, you have more to do, Why are you filling up your days so much?

I used to try to get as much done each day as I could, I guess I thought that if I got enough done, someday, somewhere way down in my distant future I could just sit and do.... nuttin'! Because I'd already finished it all. I had what we called Hurry-up disease, I never took time to relax, sure I slept but not until I had Everything done! I still like to fill up my days, but having been 're-tired' for several years now, I am finding less and less to do. I actually got my wish and had nuttin' to do. For day after day, week after week, and I got so bored! I decorated everything in my house, all my lampshades [painted and beaded], made fancy drapery tie backs, tassels, and refinished furniture. I had no passion, and I tried to balance my life with busyness, not activity that I really cared about. Now I get up early in the morning, ground myself with some prayer and get busy, writing and reading researching and composing. Then, in the evening, I rest, I s-l-o-w down, enjoy the fruits of my labor and allow peace to flow over me and take several deep breaths, feeling the healing catch up with my body.

Now for the Jokes!

A major research institution has recently announced the discovery of the heaviest element yet known to science. This new element has been tentatively named "Administratium".

Administratium has 1 neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 11 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by a force called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons. Since Administratium has no electrons, it is inert. However, it can be detected as it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact.

A minute amount of Administratium causes one reaction to take over 4 days to complete when it would normally take less than a second. Administratium has a normal half-life of 3 years; it does not decay but instead undergoes a reorganization, in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons and assistant deputy neutrons exchange places.

In fact, Administratium's mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization causes some morons to become neutrons forming isodopes. This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientists to speculate that Administratium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as "Critical Morass".
Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping trip.
After a good meal and a bottle of wine, they lay down for the night and went to sleep.

Some hours later, Holmes awoke and nudged his faithful friend. "Watson, look up and tell me what you see."

Watson replied, "I see millions and millions of stars."

"What does that tell you?"

Watson pondered for a minute. "Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. Why, what does it tell YOU?"

Holmes was silent for a minute, then spoke. "Watson, you idiot. Some jerk has stolen our tent."

An obstetrics nurse works at a large city hospital, where patients are from many different countries and cultures. One day while waiting for a new mother to be transferred to her division, she checked the chart and assumed that, because of her last name, the mother was of European descent. So when the patient was finally wheeled in, the nurse was surprised to see that she was Asian.

As she was performing the exam, they chatted, and the patient told the nurse that she was Chinese and her husband's ethnic heritage was Czech. After a short pause, she quipped, "I guess that makes my children Chinese Czechers!"
