Taking control of your health

26 Aug

Hello, I hope you are finding this in great health and spirit. Great health and spirit is something I believe we all want but getting to the truth on how to do it is clouded. There is so much misleading information out there and access to the unhealthy stuff requires little to no effort but access to the healthy stuff takes knowledge, planning and preparation.

To give you a few examples on what I’m talking about here, I recently received the NDSS newsletter in my letterbox as mail for the previous owner. NDSS, is National Diabetes Services Scheme. So as a person interested in health I had a read and was just appalled at the information prescribed.

Some of the foods recommended in their so-called “diet” plan include corn flakes, low-fat milk, rice cakes, a scrape of jam, small skim latte, low-fat yoghurt, canned chickpeas, skinless chicken breasts and low GI ice cream. It also recommends basing your meals and snacks on foods low in saturated fat, and that carbohydrates are the main source of fuel in our body. I wouldn’t recommend this stuff to anyone let alone people with diabetes. Why not? I can hear some of you asking. While others are saying “It’s not organic.” Absolutely right, it’s not organic. Organic farming has proven hands down to provide tastier and more nutritious than chemically farmed food and the research and anyone who has switched to an organic diet will support that.

In the largest study ever done on Organic farming vs Chemical farming, which is documented in the book “The living soil and the Haughley experiment” by Lady Eve Balfour, Organically grown plants and animals were healthier and more nutritious hands down every time. It wasn’t even a contest. It was like the 1996 Chicago Bulls vs the Adelaide 36ers. For all my non basketballers out there, that means the contest would be very one-sided.

Do you think people with diabetes and people in general for that matter should be told that organic produce is healthier for them? That the vitamins, minerals, trace elements and enzymes needed for different processes in the body to happen is much higher in organic produce? That chemical residues on and in the produce are damaging our nervous and hormonal systems just like they’re designed to do to the insects. People should be told this. Organic food should be readily available. It shouldn’t even be called organic food. An organic apple should just be known as an apple and a chemically grown apple should be labelled a “Chemically grown apple.” I think people would have a different perception on what they would buy if that was the case.

Remember my last post where I wrote about the chemically grown bananas. Go back and read if you need to. But do you think people with diabetes and everyone should be told that your bananas are injected with diesel fuel and growth hormones and then ripened with ethanol gas? You never hear about that stuff.

What about the rest of the foods mentioned up above? Corn flakes, low GI ice cream, skinless chicken breasts, canned chickpeas, low-fat yoghurt.

What you need to know is, food is meant to provide you with energy, nutrition, life force. This stuff above is dead food. Think about an apple again. A chemical apple, nutritionally depleted to start with because of the way it’s farmed. It goes through a big factory, gets mashed up, heated, salt, sugar and other preservatives added to it, fortified with synthetic man-made vitamins and it’s turned into some kind of apple bar. How much of the original nutrition of the apple would be left after all that heating and processing. Anyone who knows anything about the heat sensitivity of the nutrients in foods will tell you that all the goodness would’ve been destroyed in the process. Leaving you with a dead food, so that when we eat it, we have to use our energy to digest and elimate it. We get nothing from it. In fact we lose energy by eating dead food. It’s no wonder people are tired all the time. Remember the old rule, the longer the used by date on the packet the worse it is for you.    

Low fat ice cream, low-fat yoghurt, skim milk. This is all pasteurized diary. One of the four white devils Western A Price talked about in the 1930s and 40s in his book “Nutrition and physical degeneration.” 

For those of you that forget, the four white devils are white flour, white sugar, white table salt and pasteurized dairy and Price clearly shows in his book that when native tribes who were eating and living solely off the land added these to their diet through trading with the settled white man, dental cavities and health problems rose. And once the next generation of the tribe started coming through after their parents switched from their natural diet to what Price calls displacement foods, the pictures of the development of their faces and dental structure is shocking. The book is filled with stories and photographs documenting this. As Paul Chek says, “Unless you’ve read the book you don’t understand nutrition.”

Yet the NDSS doesn’t seem to want to pay attention to those facts. It’s saying have your jam (sugar), low fat dairy (pasteurized = dead. We’ve already talked about dead foods) and your canned chickpeas (a UK study found two-thirds of canned foods contained low levels of the potent carcinogen and estrogen mimicking compound, bisphenol A (BPA))

It really is like the blind the leading the blind. How about the skinless chicken breast? Well again no mention of organic or free range is mentioned here. If they’re talking about a chicken that is grown from a chickling to your plate in 36 days then you’re guaranteed to be getting a large dose of anti biotics and growth hormones along with your depleted chicken protein. As well as a sick tortured animal you’re trying to turn into healthy human tissue. A question. How can you get health out of eating diseased sick animals and chemically grown produce?

How about a diet low in saturated fats? Well when the authors wrote that line they clearly weren’t thinking about the fact that we are replacing approximately 200 million cells every second and that 50% of every cell membrane is made up of saturated fat. Or the fact that approximately 50% of Mothers milk is composed of saturated fat. So if our very first meals for the first few months of our lives are mainly saturated fat,  at what point does it become bad for us? The answer, when it becomes more profitable for food companies to use vegetable oils. If you read the book “Eat fat, lose fat” by Dr Mary Enig and Sally Fallon you will read about all the studies that were done and how the data was misinterpreted to label saturated fats as bad. Quite a shocking a read. But once you understand that organic saturated fats are healthy for you, you can enjoy things like chicken skin, lamb chops, bacon and pork ribs. Be clear that I’m talking about organically raised grass-fed meats here. Commercially farmed animals are given a lot of dodgy toxic stuff in their mouths and bodies and their bodies cannot process all the toxins, so their body stores the toxins in their fat. Making their fat highly toxic.  

We have gotten so far away from what healthy eating is and the more our kids and nieces and nephews are being brought up in this world of chemical food and factory farming, the more problems we’re going to continually have. I remind you despite all the billions of dollars that have been spent on cancer research the statistics are still this.

1900 – 1 in 30 people cancer.

1980 – 1 in 5 people cancer.

1990 – 1 in 4 people cancer.

1995 – 1 in 3 people cancer.

2000- 1 in 2 people cancer.

Today 1 in less than 2.

What about obesity, childhood obesity, diabetes, heart disease? All at epidemic proportions. I was out shopping the other day, getting myself a nectarine tree and I struggled to see one person without excess body fat around the hips and belly. I’ve said it before, society is set up for us to be out of shape and unhealthy. What if all the billions were spent on organic farming instead of cancer research? It would be a totally different world we live in. What if there was no processed food only organic food? If you read the book “Molecules of emotion” by Candice Pert or even scout around on mercola.com you will discover scientists have already found treatments for cancer but because it’s not profitable you don’t hear about it.

I know I can sound radicle, but I get frustrated when my clients and friends and family make decisions on false information like the NDSS newsletter I received. I’m truly interested in theirs and your health and the health of the planet, because ultimately you can only be as healthy as the planet. It’s hard to be healthier than the environment you live in. So I remind you that each time you spend your money on chemically farmed fruit and veg, and factory farmed meat, farmed fish, genetically modified foods and all processed foods, drinks and pasteurized diary you are supporting the continuation of that destructive inhumane industry and the destruction of your health and the health of the planet.

If you’d like more information on this, check out the documentary “Food Inc” also “Paul Chek’s lecture at the Price Pottenger foundation.” Both can be found on YouTube. Mercola.com. The book “How to eat, move and be healthy.” by Paul Chek. “You are what you eat” audio series also by Paul Chek and the book “Nutrition and physical degeneration” by Western A Price.  

After turning 50, Paul Chek talks about being able to out run, out jump and out lift the majority of professional athletes he trains by following his advice.

    I am a former special education teacher and I wrote a children’s picture book that tackles the issue of childhood obesity. Hunka Chunka Monkey Shapes Up entertains children without being preachy. It places a simple truth as a foundation in their hearts…..to cut back on their favorite snack, become active and make new friends.

    Chris Powell of ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition reads my book to his children every night. He stated on his FaceBook, “The kids are requesting Hunka Chunka Monkey Shapes Up for their bedtime story tonight….AGAIN! This is the third in a row, but I love it. What a great message of healthy living for children:). Nicely done, Sam E Bromley!” Chris’s wife, Heidi Powell, used such words as ‘amazing’ and ‘brilliant’ when describing my story! I am excited about getting this message out. You can go to YouTube.com and type in my book’s name: Hunka Chunka Monkey Shapes Up and see a brief message about my story! Please pass this on for all to see and partner with me and let us stop the obesity problem in America by encouraging the very young to skip, run and jump their way to a better life and a better future!

    I’m assuming you don’t own a cheese grater, you just use your abs?
