Solved My GERD Problem

GERD stands for Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease

I never would have thought this could happen. I am ecstatic about my GERD being gone, and I was not even trying.

It all happened when I found a supplement that was new to me. It is designated to help heal my injured tendons, muscles, and connective tissue problems.

I have injured tendons due to an accident in my right hand and wrist, which makes it very hard to play the piano or peel an apple. These are things I must do and they pain me greatly. I also have injured connective tissue on the right side of my abdomen due to a car wreck that makes it harder than it should be for me to sing. Then I have tendon and muscle problems in my legs either from, improper walking or positioning of my feet, and I have even had physical therapy to help me fix that, or it is something that they have not identified as of yet.

I am greatly impressed with the supplements that Garden Of Life makes as they are made from organic non-GMO food. I have replaced the supplement brands that I was using with Garden of Life supplements. One day I was on the internet checking out some of their supplements and I found one I had not seen. It is a supplement that works to help your body “heal”, yes I said heal, the injured muscles, tendons and connective tissue, if you happen to have these problems.

Since I have pain due to these injuries, I thought that I might check this out. It contains digestive enzymes, but it does not contain the digestive enzymes that other companies sell to relieve your heartburn and acid reflux.

I know these enzymes because I use them. They work to relieve a mosquito bite or “tenderize” your meat before cooking it. These enzymes do this either by breaking down the proteins in the meat thereby making it tender to eat, or breaking down the protein based mosquito venom thereby stopping the itching, respectively.

Now when you eat the fruits from which these enzymes come, the enzymes break down the fruit so that it can be digested more easliy. That is if you eat the fruit raw, this happens. If you do not eat it raw then you have changed the enzymes and they no longer work properly to do this.

So as you can understand, they function to help you digest the proteins in your food, so the proteins can be broken down in your stomach and intestines into something that your body can use, to give you vital nutrients, energy and even more.

Okay. As I was taking the supplements to help heal my tendons, I noticed that my stomach did not hurt anymore. I had no heartburn, no bloating, no gas, and amazingly enough I had forgotten to take my stomach medicine.

These new supplements had taken me off my regular schedule of consuming my daily vitamins and my medications, because I had to take three of these pills and then wait forty-five minutes before I ate any food. I may have forgotten to mention that I cannot swallow pills, so without food I can take no pills. By the time I could eat food my tummy was really empty and I was really ready for some food to fill up my stomach. During this new process in my morning, I had forgotten to take my stomach medicine. This could have been because my stomach did not hurt, therefore I was not reminded to take it.

After a day or two of this, I remembered that I had not taken any of my stomach medicine. I had tried to get off of it before but this pill was a proton pump inhibitor which you are not supposed to just stop using without telling your doctor or something. When I had stopped taking this medication previously I had severe abdominal pain until it was so bad that I had to start taking the medicine again.

I did not want to take my stomach medicine because I believed that anything that would change how my proton pump worked could not be healthy for the rest of my body. I had also read the insert given to you by the pharmacist about the medication and I was right, it was not a good thing in the long run. It can also cause a healthy dose of diarrhea which I had to put up with once in a while. The medicinal name for it was Pantoprazole.

During this time I realized that my hands did not hurt as bad as they did before I started taking the new supplement. My body even had less aches and pains in general than it did before.

So now I was going to test this new supplement and I decided to stop taking them for two days to see how my stomach felt, and how my muscles and tendons felt.

This was a life changing event. The next two days were terribly painful. The pain throughout my body as my muscles began to ache constantly was not fun. My stomach also began to give me heartburn, bloating and gas all over again.

I was astonished.

I had done something to help two of my health problems at the same time.

By the next day I was back to taking them again and I am still taking them.

With this supplement, which is called “Wobenzym N” and it is made by “Garden Of Life”, it says that you take three of them in the morning before food, wait forty-five minutes then eat. You are also supposed to work your way up to three more before dinner and eventually get up to taking twelve of them daily to heal your muscles.

I am not there yet, but I am on my way and I cannot wait to see the results with the increase.

I will keep you posted.

Now comes the intricate part, but I do want you to keep reading because I am going to explain some things to you.

Here goes.

Let us start with what my doctor told me. After she did an endoscopy on me she told me that she had taken out some dysplasia from my stomach.

Any word that starts with “dys” simply cannot be good when it concerns a body part, especially when it is my stomach. It is not cancer but it could become cancer. I get that.

Then she said I have Barrett’s esophagus. Let me just put in one thing here that is scientific, but it comes with explanations. “Barrett’s esophagus – intestinal metaplasia (changes of the epithelial cells from squamous to intestinal columnar epithelium) of the distal esophagus.” 1

This is new data for me but they are learning so much more on an almost daily basis now. I had never heard these words before. Simply, this is something that creates the acid reflux for a longer period of time. I knew I had this but I did not know it had a name. My husband calls it the “Dance Of Death” when I get up out of the bed to do something like a dance where I swing both my arms up and down from above my head and at the same time I am bringing my knees up to my chest.

Ah, so you recognize this dance too. Maybe you or your spouse has a name for your dance? Anyway, it comes from not being able to get rid of the heartburn that is in your chest or back, and it even hurts when you breathe.

Is it becoming even more familiar now? At any rate, my “Dance Of Death” works and I am now able to get back to sleeping or whatever I was doing before it came upon me.

Apparently this is also worse for your chances of dysplasia, which are “Abby Normal” cells (abnormal but not cancerous for those of you who do not reference the movie “Young Frankenstein” ;-)) ).

Since this was the first endoscopy I had gone through and I am well into my adult life, possibly even two-thirds of it, I am not too worried about it happening again. However, now that I have no more heartburn, I am very excited and without concern about my doctor finding any more dysplasia.  I am not too big on this procedure or anyone putting me to sleep, as I am allergic to most medications. But, my doctor and her staff do a great job with my allergy problems and have not killed me due to my allergies, yet anyway.

In the meantime, my tendons and muscles have been well enough for me to sing and play my music as well as peel apples and potatoes. And now I will get started on taking more of this supplement to heal my tendons, muscles and connective tissue.

Wobenzym N

Wobenzym N

I have done my research and have found that it does not matter how long you take these enzymes, there is no weird side effect from taking it for a long length of time. And I have found that taking more of them is also not a problem. I would never have increased the dosage until I had researched this myself. I want to know before I try anything exactly what is in store for me if I act on something. I am just a nerd like that. ;-))

Garden of Life Wobenzym N

If and when you might begin to take this great Wobenzym N yourself and see the difference that it makes in your life, the first thing to do is discuss it with your doctor, as I did, to make certain there is no problem with you taking this supplement to begin with. And secondly, please drop me a comment and let me know how it affected your life.

Even if you try other enzymes. I would like to hear about it.

I am Mother you know and we like to know about our children…….all of them

Thanks to Garden of Life for changing my life for the better.

Sincerely,

Mother

Being Healthy Consists of Eating Organic Food

Growing Real Food a guide to growing organic food

GrowingRealFood.com

Most people in the U.S. do not eat organic food.  It is surprisingly harder than it should be.

The grocery here on the island on which I live, has finally placed a small….a very small, amount of organic food for sale, in their newly formed organic section.

And…of course it is sometimes around twice the cost of the non-organic food. A five-pound bag of potatoes can be as much as $8, when the other potatoes are $5 to $6. I do live on a costly island.

But I choose to live here where we are warm on our sailboat all year-long in this sub-tropical zone.

We would be extremely cold if we had to deal with temperatures at night below 50 degrees. Oh my.

Your choices are slim here no matter what you are buying. They may or may not even have bananas, or onions, or apples on the day you are there. But oft-times, this island doesn’t have any of my Organic Valley 2% Lactose Free milk when I go to get more. There are times when I have to wait a whole week for my milk.

The first year I lived here, I remember asking the manager of my grocery, can you get extra creamy cool whip, when it first came out. He said to me, “Maybe by next year we will have it.”

Now that I live on a sailboat I am currently growing my organic foods in containers in the cockpit, and some on the bow, that can tolerate being grown in full sun down here in this heat. Many varieties of plants can only be grown down here in this sub-tropical climate in the winter when it is below 85 degrees.

a book called Grow Organic Eat Organic

Grow Organic Eat Organic

I am planning on going North just to grow food this summer. I am also on tour as my “Sister Kaite” Musical Mild Intelligent Humor show, this summer in the North so I have a busy season.

People are all wondering how we will feed the amount of people on the Earth in the next 20 years. There are plenty of plans in service already if people eat organic, buy locally, and change their bad habits of eating all this processed food in the market.

You realize that if we did not buy the processed food, then they would stop making it………. This is the entire reason, yes the complete reason, they do not want to have to label their GMO food. They know we would not buy it because we know it is not good for your health.

If they label the GMO food then we will know which ones are GMO and be able to avoid buying them and they know this. However, the way it stands now, all we have to do is “ONLY” buy the food that is labeled “Organic”, then they all lose unless they have organic food to sell.

We need to adopt a new way of healthy eating. Seeds and nuts, as most people fear is the organic way of eating, are definitely not what I am talking about here.

Why we cannot eat good healthy mayonnaise, and organic vegetables and fruits from the everyday normal supermarket is beyond me. We must find, and drive all the way to, the organic food store and there is probably only one in town, if that. We can also have free range beef, chicken, and eggs without the antibiotics and hormones that wreak havoc on the health of our children. As long as it is organic we will be healthier.

We need to start growing our own food if we have the right circumstances to do so. And we need to do this in an organic way only.

This brings up “The Principle of Care”….What a naturally easy sounding principle that is….and it is defined in the U.K. as below:

“Organic Agriculture should be managed in a precautionary and responsible manner to protect the health and well-being of current and future generations and the environment.”

In fact, there are Four Principles of Organic Agriculture in the U.K.

1. The Principle of Health- Organic Agriculture should sustain and enhance the health of soil, plant, animal, human and planet as one and indivisible.

2. The Principle of Ecology- Organic Agriculture should be based on living ecological systems and cycles, work with them, emulate them and help sustain them.

3. The Principle of Fairness- Organic Agriculture should build on relationships that ensure fairness with regard to the common environment and life opportunities

4. The Principle of Care- Organic Agriculture should be managed in a precautionary and responsible manner to protect the health and well-being of current and future generations and the environment.

This is not all there is, to the organic program in the U.K. But I did want you to know where to get access to it.

Try The Organic Food Your Grandparents Ate. They Called It "Food"

Try The Organic Food Your Grandparents Ate. They Called It “Food”

You can find their complete explanations and definitions on The Soil Association’s website. This is a new way of growing and managing the food supply that cares about what they are doing. So this could be a way of life forever, and we would not have to forego health because of chemical practices being used.

I have even switched to Organic Cotton for all my clothes as well as all my bed-clothes and linens….The end garments are residue free. 

By my powers of deduction, this says to me that the clothes that are not organic leave a residue on your body. I do not want to imagine what residue they put on our bodies. I am not going there. I will just stay with organic. I would rather have fewer clothes to wear, than nasty, chemically bad clothes.

I guess this is why, when you are going through radiation, they tell you to try to keep only 100% natural materials next to your skin. Well, at least a nurse told me that during my treatment.

Although I always knew that organic food was better for your health, I did not realize the extent of how much better until GMO actually started not wanting to label their foods as GMO. Then I began to wonder and read up on the subject. The fact that “They” do not want to label their own product as what it is, would make anyone wonder what they were hiding.

I also knew the difference when I went back to University to become a scientist. I grew my own vegetables in the back yard…..in Michigan, for heaven’s sake, where it was sometimes minus 40 degrees for a month or two in the dead of winter. Anyone can use cold frames to grow in the winter, and they make a heating device now to warm the soil slightly to keep the plants from freezing to death.

When at first I ate the peas and cucumbers in my garden, I thought there must be something wrong with them. My cucumbers did not look like the cucumbers in the store when you cut into them. They were a different color. They were white unlike the yellowness of the cukes in the store because they were older, much older.

It was not until later that I found out, that the difference between them was that the veggies in the store were much older. It sometimes takes over 3 months before they are on the shelf after they are picked.

Organic homegrown lettuce is absolutely the best taste of lettuce you will ever try. But the one garden veggie I think should always be grown, is peas. In my book, I have to say that peas should be grown so that you have food to eat when you are outside working in the garden. I do not believe I made it to the kitchen with any of my peas.

In the U.S. “Organically grown food” is food grown, and processed, using no synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. Pesticides derived from natural sources (such as biological pesticides) may be used in producing organically grown food.

SEC. 2105.  [U.S.C. 6504] NATIONAL STANDARDS FOR ORGANIC PRO-

DUCTION.

To be sold or labeled as an organically produced agricultural

product under this title, an agricultural product shall—

(1) have been produced and handled without the use of syn-

thetic chemicals, except as otherwise provided in this title;

(2) except as otherwise provided in this title and excluding

livestock, not be produced on land to which any prohibited sub-

stances, including synthetic chemicals, have been applied dur-

ing the 3 years immediately preceding the harvest of the agri-

cultural products; and

(3) be produced and handled in compliance with an organic

plan agreed to by the producer and handler of such product

and the certifying agent

USDA Organic Seal

USDA Organic Seal

This, the many other certifications and precedents, and the USDA Organic Seal is how we govern Organic Food in the U.S. and the organic seal cannot be put on anything that is not deemed organic by the governing process.

The word “Natural”, however, is allowed to be put on any food and is very misleading. Yet there are many people who do not know this, so they buy it anyway. I believe this practice should be labeled as fraud (but who asks me?).

The Organic Program (website is here) followed by the United States, is as follows:

Organic Standards. The organic standards describe the specific requirements that must be verified by a USDA-accredited certifying agent before products can be labeled USDA organic. Overall, organic operations must demonstrate that they are protecting natural resources, conserving biodiversity, and using only approved substances. A brief summary is provided below. View regulations.

Organic crops. The USDA organic seal verifies that irradiation, sewage sludge, synthetic fertilizers, prohibited pesticides, and genetically modified organisms were not used.

Organic livestock. The USDA organic seal verifies that producers met animal health and welfare standards, did not use antibiotics or growth hormones, used 100% organic feed, and provided animals with access to the outdoors.

Organic multi-ingredient foods. The USDA organic seal verifies that the product has 95% or more certified organic content. If the label claims that it was made with specified organic ingredients, you can be sure that those specific ingredients are certified organic.

These are just a few of the ways that the United states and the United Kingdom have carefully protected our rights to grow organic food.

I believe we should all be following these guidelines to preserve our health as well as our planet, and the right to continue growing organically.

Eat only Organic food, especially if you want to dismiss yourself from cancer, as we have seen already in my other articles on cancer and Salvestrols.

Anti-Aging Anyone

Nerium international Inc LogoWhy would you believe that a new treatment for anti-aging works?

Maybe because it sold $100 million in the first year it was open.

And, because it has proven itself to you in the first 90 days that you used it, or sooner.

This all depends on how much work it has to do, and your age, but you can usually see the difference in the first month, if you take your “before” photo.

Nerium Intenational 30 day money back guarantee logoThis is why the company gives you a 30 day money back guarantee.

If you buy this bottle and use the cream night treatment every night for 30 days, and do not like the difference it makes for you, then the company is willing to give you your money back.

They believe in the science behind their product and their product so much that they also hold a contest called the 90 Days Real Results Contest, which rewards the winner with a fabulous vacation and plenty of benefits.

PARTIAL FACIAL PHOTO WITH SCANNING TECHNIQUE LINES

BEFORE…………………………………………………..AFTER

They know it works.

They just do not know how it will work for you, good, great, or fantastic.

What is the name of this company?

NeriumAD anti-aging treatment bottleNerium International is the company that made $100 million in their first year and no other new company has ever done that before.

They are currently in their second year and are projected to make over $200 million this year.

The company, Nerium International, used an independent research company not related to themselves called ST&T Research of San Francisco.

ST&T is an independent research company with prominent Ph.D. and M.D. toxicologists and pharmacologists, along with other physicians, researchers, scientists, and includes regulatory compliance specialists.

These specialised researchers work together with the world’s finest research institutions, universities, legal and regulatory organisations (FDA-FTC), product manufacturers, and customs/transportation entities.

The president of ST&T is Michael Scott and he has some standards that he uses which are different than that of previous researchers.

Even though one can see the results of NeriumAD with the naked eye, Dr. Scott uses strict scientific methods and machines, instead of the objective kind of research most spas use to try and sell their own products.

ST&T uses a kind of scanning system that can detect what is not visible to the naked eye as well as what is, and should be used for all research trials for skin research.

This equipment was invented for and used to detect cracks in microchips. No wonder it is so good detecting those emerging lines that we cannot even see yet.

ST&T FACIAL SCANNING MACHINE

The clinical trials for NeriumAD were performed under strict exacting standards with this equipment.

The participants were followed for either 90 days or 180 days and they were able to maintain their results, even when they were done with their sample product for the research.

It is such a good feeling to finally be shown a company that cares enough to do things right.

Nerium International stands behind their product, and they only put natural ingredients into NeriumAD.

This is to be commended in this generation of GMO plants and synthetic ingredients.

How do you want to look as time goes by?

Salt Does Not Kill No Matter Who Tells You it Does

Sea Salt In Portland Oregon

Sea Salt In Portland Oregon

I am seeing this article in the paper written by a doctor who recently wrote his own book on health. He wrote that Salt Kills…and people should not eat so much salt…He made this decision because he said that the food companies need to put less salt in the processed foods and fast food companies need to stop putting so much salt in their food.

I cannot believe this!

Sea Salt Farming In Thailand

Sea Salt Farming In Thailand

This man is a doctor, and instead of saying that people should eat less processed foods and less fast food, he opts to say that there should be less salt in these foods, like that will really help.

The people that live on processed foods and fast foods will not be healthy no matter how little salt they eat, because there are no nutrients in processed or fast foods.

This was an article in the Health and Living section of the newspaper here in South West Florida.

Selina Natural Celtic Sea Salt

The people reading this newspaper will believe these lies because they came from a doctor.

I recently read some research…not a newspaper…that said, that people who QUIT eating salt have 300% HIGHER CHANCE of having heart problems or disease.

Very few of the people who have high blood pressure have the condition of having salt affect their blood pressure. NOT everyone who has high blood pressure has a problem with salt!!

Sea Salt Farming In Cambodia

Of course I would not eat table salt that is not Sea Salt, but I did grow up on it myself.

My Mother cooked salt with some food in it. Literally most of our friends that came over to our house could not eat the food my Mother made because of the salt content.

My Mother recently died at 92, God rest her soul, and was still eating salt. My Mother never had heart problems of any kind. In fact she had no illnesses of any kind. She died of an infection.

Salt In Religion

Salt In Religion

Aspirin will not help you NOT have a heart attack, in fact there are people who will tell you that taking an aspirin everyday will give you heart problems.

Who are we to believe?

Before I believe someone who has been trained as a doctor, I will believe the research that I read.

Doctors are not Gods. Doctors only know what the AMA has decided that they should be taught. Doctors do not know how to prevent you from becoming ill. They are like mechanics who try…yes…try and fix you once you become ill.

It is like being a medical mechanic.

Salts

Salts

If you have a great doctor who knows about nutrition and other subjects that help you with your preventative health, it is because he has chosen to go this route and educate himself/herself on these subjects.

This doctor is to be treasured, because not all doctors do this.

There is much to be said for all the so-called Folk Lore and Folk Medicine handed down from Mother to Mother/Daughter throughout the years. These are processes that work or they would not have been handed down.

We Are The Salt of The Earth Mathew 5:13

We Are The Salt of The Earth Mathew 5:13

Herbs can work just as well when it is all you have. And sometimes herbs work better, even if you have access to both medicine and herbs.

Be careful that what you read is from a reliable source, backed up by the facts of somebody’s medical research.

Well, you can read everything, but only believe what you know has good facts behind the words.

Homeopathic Alopecia Treatments That Work

Garden Of Life - Vitamin Code Organic Whole Food Multivitamins

Garden Of Life – Vitamin Code Organic Whole Food Multivitamins

Whatever happened to taking your vitamins? Good grief! Alopecia can be cured if you are getting the proper dose of Vitamin B Complex for your good health.

That is to say only if what you have is Alopecia and the hair loss is not a side effect of something else.

Even Dandruff can be a Vitamin B Complex deficiency.

I would love to know how many doctors are keeping their patients in the dark about dandruff and Alopecia. Doctors dragging patients to see them time and time again to get new creams… and shampoos… and medicine.  And the medicines never get rid of it. They make the medicines to treat the symptoms, not to cure anything.

Alopecia - Hair Loss

Alopecia – Hair Loss

I do not have anything against doctors but I wish they would train them with the proper information and give us a break here.

I just want to put a big sign in the sky that reads: “Do you know how many diseases can be cured by the proper amount of vitamins for your good health?”

And a follow up plane with another banner saying: “Most of them.”

salvestrolbook.com

salvestrolbook.com

It really did it for me when I found out about Salvestrol. And in case you have still not heard about it, it cures cancer. But wait, the best part about that statement is the fact that an organic diet can keep you from getting the “cancer” they can diagnose. The Salvestrol in the organic food will kill the cancer in your body all the time.

The doctors cannot diagnose you until you have a 10^9 amount of cancer in your body anyway, which only means if it goes above 10^12 you are dead.

Their diagnosis is years and years after your cancer has been running rampant throughout your body.

Okay. I am done ranting now.

Homeopathy - School Of Natural Medicine

Homeopathy – School Of Natural Medicine

People are buying the homeopathic treatments for Alopecia because their doctors do this to them. And guess what? Homeopathy works!

To make matters even worse for the case of the doctors, the homeopathy treatment even tells you that if it does not work in 4 or 5 days then go see your doctor. Now this only means that you have something worse and the hair falling out is a symptom of that. They say this because they know that if you have Alopecia, then their treatment will work.

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12

Much of the medical community, like Mayo Clinic, is now saying that they are connecting Alopecia with stress. And what happens first in stress? Stress destroys your B vitamins immediately.

Well most of the medical articles and organizations are saying that Alopecia can happen from selenium poisoning (too much selenium in your diet) but not a deficiency of Vitamin B12. That’s right, they are calling it an autoimmune disease

A deficiency of Vitamin B12 can cause fatigue, constipation, loss of appetite, weakness and tingling in the hands and feet but not hair loss, also according to the health organizations.  They say that Alopecia is an autoimmune disease.

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6

Some of the other health agencies day that there is more than one reason for hair loss or Alopecia. There are reasons such as chemotherapy (of course), illness, stress, and/or hormonal changes.

But Vitamin B6 (pyrixidine) regulates hormones. It is generally accepted that hormones can be the cause, and most of time they are the cause,  of hair loss.

Vitamin B5 - Pantothenic Acid

Vitamin B5 – Pantothenic Acid

This happens more often than you would think during menopause. In menopause you can have low estrogen levels which contributes to this. Therefore Vitamin B6 could be of help.

If you are talking about hair loss due to scalp infections Vitamin B6 can also help with this. Pyridixine promotes a healthy blood flow to the scalp. This will also help with dandruff, dry scalp, eczema and even psoriasis. These scalp conditions can also contribute to hair loss.

Organic Produce

Organic Produce

There are many scientific papers written that list acne as a B vitamin deficiency (Vitamin B5 or pantothenic acid). And there has also been science to say that obesity is a Vitamin B5 deficiency.

This is to say that the competition is rough between your body deciding to make hormones with Vitamin B5, or doing fatty acid synthesis. It is sort of like the more Vitamin B5, the less decision making.

Journal Of Orthomolecular Medicine

Journal Of Orthomolecular Medicine

Do not forget that the complex of B vitamins needs to be taken together. If you are deficient in one then you are probably deficient in more than one of them

I am a believer of Orthomolecular Science and I read the Journal Of Orthomolecular Medicine. There is much to be learned in there. As a Physiologist and Scientist myself, I can understand it.

Journal Of Orthomolecular Psychiatry

Journal Of Orthomolecular Psychiatry

Maybe we will find, someday, that if we had enough of the nutrients in our bodies that our body needs, then disease would be a thing of the past.

Yes, I know there are viral and bacteriological agents, but that is what we have an immune system for. If our immune system had the nutrients it needs to be at its best maybe it could fight off what it needs to fight off as well.
