Ohhhh my darling friends...YOU are something! AND the power of prayer...it move's mountains AND hurricanes!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, and MORE
hearty thanks! The hubs and I are grateful beyond belief! I just really have a feeling that your united prayers really helped us..in fact I KNOW they did!
This morning I was cruising around my e-mail and came across an interesting one. It's all about improving your brain health and supporting that gorgeous little glob of gray matter naturally.
YOU know ME...I'm ALL about natural...in fact, I cross myself 3 times every time I WALK by a doctor here in SW FL. They could be related to hurricanes as far as I'm concerned...they scare the be~jabbers out of me!
I've seen four of my dear friends DEAD by DOCTOR within the last few years and this occurred within a very short year after their so called 'treatment' ... term used loosely.
So after seeing this happen not once, not twice, but THREE times and then yet another time just for harsh reminder's sake...with me own eyeballs... I'll do EVERYTHING I can to keep myself and the hubs safe and as healthy as possible without having to turn to the medical field. Remember medicine is just another name for big business and the profits reaped there of.
Now don't get me wrong I'm not saying that everyone in the medical field is evil, in fact I have several friends that are nurses and TRUE angels about helping others. And maybe the 'for profit' standard is more pertinent here in my neck of the woods but medicine...it seems...here..is much more for PROFIT... than for... what I'd term....humanity's sake.
Take a gander at our newest governor the infamous Rick Scott who bought his way into politics and the governorship but also left sick people that couldn't afford to pay for his hospitals out in the back alley to die! How's that for supporting a humanity driven occupation? He just flat out refused the ambulances when they came to his hospitals...absolutely refused to let them in the doors...no pay...sorry...we have no room at the inn. Pretty heartless huh? But OH...he really pulled in the dough ra me!
Okay..that was harsh...sorry...the barometric pressure is still VERY low here in SW FL and that makes people quirky and mouthy... For me..that translates to quirker and mouthier than usual.
But...I have good reason to feel this way..every time I've gone to a doctor in my earlier unsuspecting and naive 'take care of me, and do it FAST' days I've NOT been happy with the results. NOT happy at all, so I speak from my OWN personal experience and the experience I've witnessed as I've seen fairly young fairly healthy friends die...badly!
So I decided to purchase and download this Brain Health Kit and I'm happy to share my knowledge with you...FREE!
Think of it as a thank you bonus for the wonderful support and prayers that you give me so freely each and every blog. Graciousness begets graciousness..and the world goes round in a softer more loving way!
Then I had another
moment. What an awesome little business for all my darling sparkling friends that are looking for some extra revenue. I'm sure this little publishing company decided what would be a popular subject (WHO doesn't want to know how to save their brains from Alzheimers???) flew here and there on the internet..pulled all the info together packaged it as a download and an inexpensive print edition, added in profit and there you go...you are in business! Hint...hint MzCathi!
I ordered the download and the print edition because it's instant gratification download style AND the print edition books (coming in 3-7 days via USPS) to hold in my lap (my preferred reading choice) and absorb the info with a highlighter pen in hand.
This highlighting just came into play within the last year or so as it was DRILLED into my head by my mother... the historical librarian... to NEVER deface a book...ANY book because they are so valuable! Honestly I have an entire library of hardback books that I should take into the consignment gallery and sell...they are in perfect condition, just like new! Even my college study books were pristine..I took notes on paper, not in the books.
So I'll be sharing some tidbits of what I learn because my daddy had dementia and my momma had Alzheimer's...a nasty and insidious disease. Her body was in perfect shape but her poor little brain was SO bright..I think she just burned it out. It was a horrifying situation to watch such a brilliant little woman so fierce and independent throughout her entire life turn into a person that I just did not know.
I'm going to do EVERYTHING in my power to avoid that situation and I'm going to share what I learn with you my darling friends to protect your brilliant brains too!
Okay...pull out your paper and pencils...k?
First the 5 foods and things that are the absolute WORST for your beautiful brain.
Fast food hamburgers
Potato chips and french fries
High fat and processed cheeses
Any highly saturated fat food, fried foods, sugar and white flour are termed DEATH of the brain and the body as well. Dump them...get rid of them, SAVE yourself!
Also some other things you want to think about:
Aluminum...chuck the soda cans, beer cans, foil, and deodorants that contain it! Absolute TOXIC for your brain!
Lead...research, research, research! Older home paints on the wall. Your mascara?
There's more...and I don't remember all of them..you can look into this more....YIKES
do I NEED this program or NOT?
Out of balance hormones do whatever you can to get those hormones in balance. Thyroid, HGH, estrogen, testosterone...when the hormones are out of whack the body releases excess cortisol which can actually cause brain shrinkage.
Hydrogenated and trans fat foods...read PROCESSED..bad, bad, bad! Especially white flour and foods marked 'enriched' death!
I know you are going to HATE this..I do..but our ice cream is really packed with brain killing stuff.
BUT for every BAD there is a GOOD and that's chocolate!
thank you Sweet Baby Jesus! As long as it's at least 70% cacao or unsweetened cocoa powder you can have an oz a day and grow your brain in the process...what could be BETTER than THAT?
You KNOW how I love my smoothies! Here's a memory boost beauty!
1/2 c packed baby spinach leaves
1 c milk (I use Almond milk vanilla)
1/2 c filtered apple, cranberry, or pomegranate juice
1/2 c fresh or frozen fruit or berries ( I LOVE blueberries)
3 T flaxseed oil
1 T honey (I often use Stevia)
1/2 t almond extract
sometimes for fun...I'll throw in some raw walnuts..gives a little nutty flavor and GOOD for you
3 ice cubes
Blend well, drink.....and be smart and alert for the entire day!
Stay sparky my friends...and focus those prayers for our friends in Texas and Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. Issac is still a force to be respectful of!
Tommorrow some prescriptions and over the counter meds that cause memory loss side effects.
