Why do I get sick?

Cholecalciferol

In this post I am going to right about a segment of my “About Page”. What inspired me to write this, was a comment that was presented to me in the comments. If you are the person that wrote the comment, I thank you.

vitamin DThe reason I am writing this is because there is a lot of confusion, misinformation and the Government nutritional guidelines that was originally based on a lie and bad science, and those guidelines are still there now. During this post you can choose to make an informed decision whether to follow the flow or break free and head on the path which is becoming more and more accepted. I’m talking about people who go out and find the information they need that will ultimately reduce their risk of degenerative diseases. Why do I get sick and what can I do to stop getting sick covers a broad area of ailments and disease. I don’t think the list of diseases here is complete. Once our governments get serious about this vitamin D deficiency pandemic and acts, we will see much less suffering and disease. Government could have a supplementation program, which would reduce the running costs of hospitals, because you wouldn’t have people getting sick. So if you are one of these people who are constantly getting sick. You are not alone. I was one of those people up until about 3 years ago.

“Do Doctors get sick? “. Yes our doctors that save our lives get sick to and I do know our Doctors suffer from colds and flu and hundred of diseases, viral and bacterial infections, just like we do. You know what I have witnessed from researching on the internet and in books is, all Doctor’s thoughts and views are varied from one extreme to another, just like every-ones views.  For instance low carb vs vegan or vegetarian. we have doctors all over the world that have their unique diets. Doctors are human like every one else. There is already clinical and observational studies out there to show what diets are superior. They say you are what you eat, or should I say, what you supplement. I’ll come back to this soon. Did you know, Doctors get about 1 day to learn about nutrition while in university. So if you are anything like me and research a lot, you may no more than your doctor about nutrition.

People like yourself can research even go to a library. Some libraries are free to use, so why not take advantage of it. Internet is available in most libraries. If you have an internet connection at home, you have the world at your finger tips. As long as you know what to look for, the search engine, which ever one you choose should do a pretty good job of finding what you are looking for. I personally use Google and Bing as my main search engines . A few ideas, if you were looking for things on colds and flu, you could type something like, How to cure the cold or flu, or how to prevent the cold or flu.

I think the hypothesis that increased sun exposure causes skin cancer is wrong and needs to be looked at. There are three facts that challenge this hypothesis and that is: Do we spend more or less time in the sun? (less). Do we use more or less sunscreen? (More). Is there more or less skin cancer today? (more). One thing that is very strange is the sun exposure hypothesis seems to contradict these facts. Another fact is, we end up being susceptible to a whole host of vitamin D deficiency diseases, because we shield ourselves to much from the sun. Another hypothesis is more sun leads to less disease. The more sun exposure you get, the more vitamin D your body makes. Have you noticed when some people go out into the sun they don’t burn, they just tan. The reason for this some people tend to be nutritionally sound while others that burn easily tend to be nutritionally deficient. Obviously if you are nutritionally deficient and sun bath you run the risk of sun burn and the problems that come with that. Did you know there would be no life on this planet without sunlight. Sunlight is vitally important for good health. It is the lack of sunlight which makes people come down with degenerative diseases. Why do you think people get different diseases, like colds and flu during the winter. It is the lack of sunlight, why you get sick. A lot of these diseases people get from being vitamin D deficient are preventable and in some cases reversible.

structures antimicrobial peptides

One of the single most important things I have done to stop getting sick is supplementing. At the top of my list of supplements is Vitamin D3. Your body makes anything up to 1000 of broad spectrum antibiotics called antimicrobial peptides. These peptides produce a lipoprotein coating that wraps around the virus or bacteria and punches a hole through the coating and then the infection starts dieing.

Here are some of the signs and symptoms related to the absence of vitamin d in your body.

  • Fatigue
  • Muscle cramps
  • Joint pain
  • Chronic pain
  • unexplained body pain
  • Weight gain
  • High blood pressure
  • Restless sleep     add vitamin B12 daily.
  • Poor concentration
  • daily headache
  • Bladder problems
  • Constipation or diarrhea
  • heart arrhythmia
  • atrial fibrillation
  • stroke
  • daytime sleepiness
  • memory problems
  • depression

Here are some of the diseases associated with vitamin D deficiency.

  • Osteoporosis and Osteopenia
  • Heart disease                                        Smoking or eating junk food does this.
  • Hypertension(hi blood pressure)                            Reduce processed carbs.
  • Obesity                                                                         Eating junk food does this.
  • Metabolic Syndrome and Diabetes.                        Eating junk food does this.
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Gout
  • Infertility and PMS
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Depression and Seasonal Affective Disorder
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic Pain
  • Periodontal disease
  • Psoriasis
  • Tuberculosis
  • Rickets(soft ribcage and bones)
  • cancer(All)   Prevention up to 77%  Hi Blood sugar accelerates tumors.
  • colds and flu

If I kept on digging, you could almost add just about every disease known to man. Here is a disease incidence prevention chart, German version of disease incidence prevention chart. Notice the instance of all cancers can be reduced by up to 77%. Type 1 diabetes up to 66%. Here is a chart that shows serum level by sun exposure amount for non supplement takers. If you are using a tanning bed and are a non supplement taker, you may want to look at this chart.

Over 90% of the world population is vitamin d deficient. 80% of expecting mothers are vitamin D deficient. 50% of those births will be preterm births. The most important times for immune and general health is during the pregnancy, infancy and early childhood. A vitamin D deficient infant are open to the following diseases: Rickets, asthma, allergies, autism, cancer, CVD, chronic pain, colds and flu, dental cavities, type 1 diabetes, eczema, Fetal growth impairment, gestational diabetes, growth development, learning problems, Preeclampsia, prenatal infections and preterm birth.
vitamin d intake and toxicity

See the slide above? 15 studies in 2007 that you could supplement up to 30,000iu/day without toxicity. Notice all reports of toxicity are over 30,000iu.

Next month I am coming up to my 3rd year without cold or flu. The main supplements I take on a daily basis are, Vitamin D3 10,000iu, magnesium citrate, and omega3, 2000mg. The reason I take 10,000iu of D3 a day is, I work indoors and when I am outside I am pretty much fully clothed. Now for a society of people like us, I think that covers a large chunk of the population. The other thing to consider is we are not hunters and gatherers anymore, we spend more time inside and we don’t run around naked.  If you live close to the equator and you use a high spectrum sun screen, you won’t be getting sufficient beta rays from the sun to produce enough vitamin D, because sunscreen blocks the beta rays that produce vitamin D. Those are very good reasons are why we should be taking vitamin D3.

Did you know, there will never be a cure for cancer and other diseases made available for the world. The reason for this is each and every person in this world is worth a small fortune to the medical community and the big pharmaceutical company’s. The idea is to keep you alive so you make lots and lots of money for the big pharmaceutical company’s. Chances are if you go to the doctor you will come out with a prescription. Did you know, little as 2 years into university, doctors end up on the payroll of the pharmaceutical companies. Every time a cure comes out it gets suppressed straight away. There is no future in cures, only drugs. Go here and watch this documentary. If you live in America and stand up and say I have a cure for a disease you will go to jail. The AMA, FDA and big pharma control the country.

What can you do to help? Anyone who sees value in this can do 3 things. 1/ spread the word so everyone can get informed. 2/ Vitamin D Council recommends 5000iu/day for 3 months, then get your vitamin D levels tested. 3/ Make sure you get enough magnesium. Magnesium is crucial for the metabolism of vitamin D. Vitamin D requires magnesium to switch genes on and  off. Magnesium can be found in green leafy vegetables. Another good source of magnesium is seeds and nuts. A hand full of nuts or seeds every day would be beneficial. Alternatively you can get a good quality magnesium supplement from your local pharmacy.

My Journey to Low Carb High Fat dieting.

LOW CARB

I started researching health items about five years ago. A person who was working with me at the time said, “I saw some good info on vitamin D3. You should have a look”. Any way my curiosity got the better of me and I started researching lots of different topics. I started with Vitamin D3 and vitamin D diseases and D3 deficiency problems. Any way I have my write-up about this topic and this lead the way for me , to where I am now.

Getting serious about low carb high fat, (LCHF) dieting wasn’t an easy step. To get there I had to look at what I was eating now and consider what was needed to start the long road to where I am now. From when I realized that (LCHF) was where I needed to go, to when I really got serious, was about three years. To go from being a carbohydrate burner to actually being a fat burner took me approximately 28 days.

There are a few signs that can give you an idea when you are in“ketosis”. One is, your urine takes on a different smell. It actually stinks, even if you drink lots of water. The other is, to urinate on a ketostick. You can buy them from a pharmacy. If you have ketones in your urine, the bottom of the sick should turn a purple color.

The first thing you need to do is not have food in your house that contradicts you. So what I did was go through my cupboards and refrigerator and cleaned them out. Fresh, tinned and packaged food stuffs , got boxed up and either were given away or thrown out.

The next thing was to work out what I was going to eat on a daily basis. To do that, I watched video’s from different LCHF authors. Some of the food that I consumed was already in the fridge and cupboard. Foods like, meat. Fatty preferably. Calciferous, low carbohydrate vegetables. Tinned and fresh. I prefer to buy and eat fresh and in season when possible. Soups and stews are an excellent addition to your diet. Currently this week I have been eating a “tomato bisque” soup and a piece of meat for a few nights and freeze what soup I don’t use. Steamed calciferous vegetables with butter or hollandaise sauce is another great Idea.

To get into ketosis you should consume between 20 grams and no more than 50 grams of carbohydrate a day. That can be a lot or it can be very little. Depending on the carbohydrate you are consuming. A piece of fruit could max out your carbohydrate intake for the day and then calciferous vegetables could fill you right up. Calciferous vegetables are a type of vegetable that you can eat and not have any weight-gain. Like cabbage, cauliflower, kale and squash. Other vegetables like potato are like eating straight sugar.

I went into ketosis this Christmas 2015. Some of the things I am noticing that is different in ketosis is. Exercise appears to be easier. Even though I perspire, I don’t sweat anywhere near as much. I appear to tolerate the tropical heat where I live much better. About the only down-side so far is the smelly urine. I don’t consider that a negative 😉

The information given here is what I did to achieve ketosis. Some may get there faster, while others longer. If you have any concerns, please do your own research before you start.

Human-beings have the ability to burn carbohydrate or fat. Our ancestors didn’t have the comfort of choosing. Seasons dictated what we ate. These days we have a choice. Good luck!

Natural soap using beef fat(Tallow)

beef fat(tallow) soap

 

In my last post on making soap. I had a recipe that used olive oil. This one is going to use beef fat. Its other name is beef (tallow). This is my first attempt at making soap with tallow instead of olive oil. The only modifications I used here was the change with fat and I used and I used a 2.5 liter plastic slice tray, which is approximately 40 mm deep and about 280 mm wide. I marked the sides of the container with a felt marker so the soaps could be cut. I used a straight piece of timber. After curing for 24 hours the soap firmed enough to cut, using a knife and straight edge, if required.

I am adding this updated recipe below, since the amounts here have changed to fit the 2.5 liter container. Plus I have added a fragrant eucalyptus oil.

 

48.8oz (4x500gm) beef fat, or general animal fat.

13oz (450ml) Distilled water in Pyrex jug.

6.5oz   Lye (sodium hydroxide).

4 cap-fulls of eucalyptus oil or equivalent. Optional.

1x 2.5 liter plastic container.

Using a medium size sauce-pan, heat fat until it has completely dissolved. Add fragrant oil. Mix lye to the water and sir till liquid clears. Add liquid to the fat and sir till it resembles a thin gravy. I use a stick mixer. A lot faster. Pour into plastic container. Don’t over-fill! Let stand overnight and cut into suitable cake like soaps. Let cure for 6-8 weeks. Remove soaps from container and tidy edges with an old paring knife or old potato-peeler.

This recipe makes 9 cakes of soap. The longer it stands, the harder it will get. Total cost approximately $10. Enjoy!

Remember! Safety first.

Use rubber gloves. Safety glasses and keep some vinegar on hand, in case of lye burns. Add lye to water, not the other way.
