How to prevent spending the last 10 years of your life in a diaper and a wheelchair

Friday, November 22, 2013

There are many authors writing on this topic now but this one I thought was far above average

What do you think?

    A Naturalpathic Dr can and does do the blood work necessary to identify a person's food alergies and then can give you the list of foods you should eat and should avoid. They can also provide the minerals and supplements that you need to take. Mainstream medical professionals would not do this unless pressed into it because mainstream meds are not doing any good for the underlying condition.

You will always be able to find someone promoting something that they say is good for you, but how many will follow up to be sure those supplements are working??

I hate the word motivation because it is fear based, but I truly can use it accurately when it comes to the reason, mentioned here in this blog, for me getting healthier. I refuse!!! to lose my mental abilities, be put into a "rest" home (RIP), and wear diapers!!

Thank you for posting this.

    I like Chris and his information. I was hoping he would have been more specific.
I really hope more people read from Dr. Perlmutter's book Grain Brain or site. I know Chris doesn't always agree with him, but the Dr. has great credential and case studies to back up his information on brain issues and diet. He really directs a lot of his work on these issues and Birgit I am personally seeing results.
I had posted this on our Grain Brain team and I know they will like reading it as well. I as well posted some of Chris's past articles too. I love his information on raw milk. Helped me find a supplier.
Hey I am making yogurt now!
So easy and turns out great. Love the simple ways without expense, so glad I didn't buy a machine!
Thanks Birgit for your continued sharing with great healthful articles and your journey as well.

    I'd go with the proven supplements: Fish oil if you can't eat salmon or small mackerel. Then it's turmeric as Alzheimer in India is a fraction of the west. These two are the best insurance.

    I was with him until I got to his list of supplements. (He didn't use that word but I'm not sure what else to call them.) Then he said, "wait, don't ..." and advised " identify the underlying mechanism and address that."

Huh? Ok, I understand his style of rhetoric but let's be practical. Are we supposed to have a test for micronutrient deficiency? Have you? How does one go about that? Same questions for gut inflamation.

    Thanks for this, Birgit. I learned a lot from this article and have subscribed to his blog. I would like to have seen a more user-friendly list of suggested foods containing all of the nutrients listed at the end of the article, but hopefully I can glean some of these from other articles on his site. Thanks again!
