GREENS ARE A LIFE FORCE

Every life cycle begins with plant life. Plants have the unique ability to use the energy from the sun to create nutrition and life force. It therefore follows, that including green plants in your diet would be a good choice for providing a more direct source of vital nutrients.

As a young person, I used to tell myself silly things like. Only goats eat leaves. At that time, I had no understanding of the real benefits of food, and how important nutrients are to the daily functioning of our organs, hormones and the prevention of diseases and ailments.

Maybe wisdom comes with age, maybe it is instilled by God for a particular purpose. Perhaps, one just gets tired of not being well and seeks to make their body better. There was a time when the greenest thing I ate was avocado. Cucumber salad was a regular part of our diet, but we peeled the skin off. We had no idea that we were feeding the pigs and the sheep, the most nutritious part of the cucumber

NUTRITIONAL CONTENT

Dark leafy greens such as KALE AND SPINACH, provide a wealth of HEALTH BENEFITS, and more nutrients than most people are aware of. Leafy greens such as spinach, kale, parsley and other “greens” abound with vitamins and minerals. The list is so extensive and widely known, that I will let you look them up on your own.

We are aware of the importance of vitamins, but it is sometimes challenging to include them in our diet on a daily basis. It is necessary to consume water soluble vitamins daily since they cannot be stored in the body. Vitamins C and most B vitamins are water soluble, and will be eliminated once they are not used. Other vitamins are fat soluble and can therefore be stored in fat and the liver, and released when needed.   These include vitamin A, D, E, K.  Some minerals that are plentiful in dark leafy greens include calcium, potassium, copper manganese and iron.

Many grain contain GLUTEN..and triggers GLUTEN INTOLERANCES.

MANY GRAINS TRIGGER GLUTEN INTOLERANCE and CELIAC DISEASE

GLUTEN INTOLERANCE and CELIAC DISEASE are NOT one and the same.

I never attempted to write a blog on  GLUTEN INTOLERANCE  before, mainly because I was struggling to understand it myself.

I was struggling to understand my symptoms and what to do about healing my body, since all I heard from my various tests was that there is nothing wrong.  So as such, I was the only one that knew that I had a problem, but had no idea what it was. .

Because there is so much that many people are not aware of and which may be useful, I will not try to cram it into one post.

This article will deal with GLUTEN SENSITIVITY, GLUTEN INTOLERANCE (allergy) and their relation to CELIAC DISEASE.

I realize that in order to do a meaningful job of this, I have to infuse it with my personal experiences. That is quite OK.  If this helps anyone to zero in on their symptoms and cause people to be on the look-out for symptoms it would be worth it.

It is estimated that only a small percent of the occurrence of gluten intolerance are diagnosed as such. In many instances it is discovered while investigating other diseases. One school of thought is that as many as 15% of persons are gluten sensitive. Read the rest of this entry

The human body is such a magnificent machine.(If I may call it that).

It can repair itself. It can detoxify itself, and expel unwanted elements. It has the most magnificent detective force imaginable. If you doubt that, try eating contaminated food, and see how fast it will be detected and expelled. The body creates perspiration to cool down itself if it starts to overheat. There is so much to marvel at when it comes to the human body.

Allergies are your body defenders called to action, and fighting to protect you.

One of the amazing features of the human body, is that it can detect danger at a whim and go to work to defend itself. When this happens, we refer to it as intolerance, or an allergic reaction.

There is a difference between your body being intolerant of some things, and the body developing  allergies to other things. Read the rest of this entry
