TURMERIC
This Spice Is a Brain Health Breakthrough

Discover the Simple Natural Solution to Lifelong Cognitive Health

Are you concerned about maintaining the health of your brain as you age?

You’re not alone. Losing one’s memory and mental abilities to cognitive decline is something we all fear, and the current statistics on the prevalence of cognitive decline in the western world are not pretty.

By age 65, sadly 1 in 8 adults in the western world will suffer from severe cognitive decline, and by age 80, an astonishing 1 in 2 will.

Researchers have been working for years to develop an effective treatment. But one “miracle” drug after another has failed to live up to its promises, and it’s becoming more and more apparent
that pharmaceuticals are not the solution. Unfortunately, the medical establishment is so narrowly focused on finding an elusive “cure” that scientifically proven prevention strategies are often ignored.

I’m Joshua Corn, Editor -in-­Chief of Live in the Now, one of the fastest growing natural health publications in the USA. My passion for natural health drives me to seek the truth about the causes of health problems and to educate people on alternative solutions that are both safe and effective.

Please keep reading, because I’ll tell you about an amazingly effective way to protect your brain from the ravages of cognitive decline and boost your thinking and memory abilities quickly, naturally and safely.

Nature’s Brain-Protecting Breakthrough

There are a number of natural brain protectors out there, but did you know that one herb has shown more promise when it comes to supporting your neurological system than any other medical finding to date? It’s a scientific fact that ‘curcumin’, an antioxidant compound found in the root of the turmeric plant, is one of the most powerful natural brain protecting substances on the planet! It continues to amaze scientists with its remarkable cognitive health benefits.

You may be familiar with turmeric as the bright yellow spice that is commonly found in curry powder. Turmeric has a long history as a healing herb and culinary spice in India. Interestingly, India has the highest per capita consumption of turmeric AND the lowest incidence of cognitive decline worldwide!

Here is a short video by Dr Oz:

Your Brain on Curcumin

The hallmark process associated with certain types of cognitive decline is the formation in the brain of abnormal protein structures called beta-amyloid plaques. That’s why I was excited to read about a landmark clinical trial involving people with severe cognitive decline that measured the effects of curcumin. Amazingly, the participants taking curcumin had significantly higher levels of dissolved plaque in their blood compared to those in the placebo group.

This study showed that curcumin has the ability to effectively pass into the brain, bind to beta- amyloid plaques and assist the body in their break down. Curcumin is one of the only substances known to have such a profound protective effect on the brain.

The Incredible Health Benefits of Curcumin

  • Protects brain cells from ageing
  • Boosts overall cognitive function
  • Promotes healthy cardiovascular function
  • Supports healthy mood balance
  • Boosts detoxification and liver health
  • Increases memory retention and clarity
  • Supports joint and muscle health
  • Fights body-wide inflammation
  • Promotes a healthy digestive system
  • Supports natural weight loss

Curcumin Combats Dangerous Inflammation

You may have heard about the dangers of “silent” chronic inflammation. It’s been discussed by Dr. Oz and has made headlines in publications such as Newsweek and Time. It’s important for you to know that slow-growing, body-wide inflammation is rapidly becoming recognised as the root cause of the development of cognitive decline, as well as a wide range of serious health problems.

Unfortunately, most people don’t do anything until the initial symptoms, such as muscle aches and joint discomfort, appear. When this happens, their gut reaction often is to go see a doctor, who is unlikely to correctly diagnose the problem, and more than likely will prescribe drugs that are far from safe and only provide short-term benefits.

But the initial symptoms of pain are just the beginning.

If left unchecked, chronic inflammation can damage your body in many ways. One of the worst examples of this is cognitive decline, which can ravage your memory and severely impact your quality of life in what should be your golden years.

Here are 7 ways chronic inflammation can damage your body:

  1. Memory loss and cognitive decline.
  2. Increased cardiovascular risk.
  3. Joint pain and loss of mobility.
  4. Abnormal growth of healthy cells
  5. Accelerated skin ageing and wrinkles
  6. Compromised digestive function
  7. Weight gain 
  8. Loss of muscle tone

Cutting-edge science is showing that curcumin is one of the most powerful, natural anti- inflammatory ever studied. Curcumin is so effective because it is a potent inhibitor of the body’s most powerful inflammation-causing chemical, called Nf-kappa beta. Miraculously, curcumin has been shown in numerous studies to tame joint pain and muscle soreness, protect the brain, support cardiovascular health, bolster immunity and more. If you have a lingering health problem that no doctor can resolve, you may be suffering from chronic inflammation and curcumin may be just the natural solution you’ve been looking for.

How to Get the Most Out of Curcumin

Although you may be able to find high quality turmeric powder at your local market, it’s very difficult to verify its purity and potency. Plus, it’s almost impossible to incorporate therapeutic amounts of curcumin into your diet on a daily basis as a spice. So, to put it simply, a high-quality curcumin supplement is your best bet!

However, not all curcumin supplements are created equal. Unfortunately, most supplements out there don’t have the necessary doses and components to get the job done. If you take the wrong supplement, you’ll end up not only wasting money, but missing out on an incredible opportunity to protect your brain and keep harmful inflammation at bay.

Here’s what you can expect:

  • Protection for your brain and cognitive function
  • Improved mental clarity and memory retention
  • Better mood balance and more energy
  • A healthier heart and more balanced cholesterol
  • Fewer aches and pains and less stiffness
  • Smoother, more youthful-looking skin
  • Support for liver health and detoxification
  • Antioxidant protection against free radicals
  • An overall increased sense of vitality

Drink the Cloud

Drink the Cloud!

I would like to share something with you…

Every day, several times a day, when I turn on this marvellous machine from Japan,
I hear a little voice say “Kangen Water 9.5,” and my body instantly feels supported.

As the machine begins its filtration cycle,
it draws up ordinary tap water and transforms
it into something absolutely amazing!
Then, as if by magic, it promptly delivers
filtered, fresh, cool and delicious, ionised
alkaline drinking water.

Peering into the glass, the first thing I notice
is the milky cloud. This is how I know my
machine is working optimally. The cloud
is formed from super-charged, tiny bubbles of hydrogen gas (H2), which is one of the
key components to this fantastic water.

This is a huge part of what gives Kangen Water® its amazing health benefits so, go on and
Drink the Cloud, quickly before it dissipates! 

Ahh.. that’s the stuff!

Benefits of Bubbles

The tiny H2 (molecular hydrogen) bubbles you see in a glass of Kangen Water®
are generated during the process of electrolysis in the Enagic® water ionising machine.
The potential of Hydrogen or pH is the measure of hydrogen-ion concentration present,
which affects alkalinity.

Hydrogen-rich Kangen Water® is known for its immeasurable health benefits because
of its incredible alkalinity, so the more bubbles that get into your system, the more
benefits!

 

But How do the Bubbles Work?

Hydrogen gas is a free radical scavenger – in      other words, it’s a powerful antioxidant! The
H2 bubbles may be extremely tiny, but they
pack a punch in that they are capable of
neutralising even the most damaging, reactive,
free-radicals in your body. In fact, the smaller
the better!
 
Research has found that H2 “can be used as
an effective antioxidant therapy; owing to its
ability to rapidly diffuse across membranes”
If you’re looking for a safe, effective
antioxidant to keep your body healthy on a
cellular level, visit my website and then give
me a call! I would love to enlighten you and

Offering Hope to Others whilst Fighting his own Neuromuscular Condition

Ron E West, now 76 years ‘young’, is on a mission to tell his story to others and share his experience and knowledge, in coping with and even reversing many of the chronic, debilitating autoimmune conditions that are becoming increasingly common worldwide.

Back in the day, in the 1980s and 1990s, when Ron was flying high in his career, with a 400-year-old cottage in England, His and Hers luxury Mercedes cars and a seagoing motor cruiser as a getaway retreat, he thought he was invincible and life couldn’t get any better!

Ron enjoyed everything about his life and had a passion for his work in IT. He had a hunger for knowledge and a thirst for understanding how things worked. His constant reading and research kept him one step ahead of his competitors all the time. Life was full of challenges and Ron thrived on challenges! His job in IT was to find solutions to difficult problems and for this he possessed a remarkable talent.  He had a well-deserved reputation for developing novel strategies to achieve key objectives.

His passion for his work was all-consuming and perhaps he didn’t do things he should have done to take proper care of his health. He was just too busy being busy! Such dedication to work comes at a cost and not taking care of physical well-being eventually takes its toll on your body. How often do we hear of people burning themselves out early in their professions? They fall victim to high stress levels and high expectations, working 24/7 to achieve ever-demanding goals.

Health problems started for Ron in 1996, although at that time he didn’t acknowledge there was a problem. In hindsight he can see it. At Christmas 1997 Ron’s daughter queried what was wrong with him. He had lost his spark. She could see he wasn’t happy. Having reached his goals of a successful business and a fulfilling lifestyle early, Ron wasn’t ready to stop and retire from his career, but he couldn’t see where to go next. It was then, at 55 years of age, with the support and encouragement of his wife Michele, who had always believed in his capabilities more than Ron himself, they took a leap of faith and moved to Gibraltar. There, Ron worked on a project with IBM, which led him to even more success and renewed satisfaction in his work.

At that point Ron’s health was beginning to falter. His legs would sometimes give way. He had developed a strange gait, which didn’t go unnoticed, but he had become accustomed to it. 

In 2005, he was working on the IT systems in the Private Health Clinic in Gibraltar, when the Principal at the clinic called Ron into her office and confronted him with questions about his health. She referred him to the Wessex Neurological Unit in Southampton to undergo diagnostic tests. 

In 2006 Ron was diagnosed with a rare condition called ‘Inclusion Body Myositis’ (IBM) a slowly progressive, autoimmune, muscle wasting condition. He was told he would be in a wheelchair within two years. This was particularly ironic, as he had learnt his profession, with IBM the global computer giant. He had become a Business Partner with them and was able to build a hugely successful computer consultancy business, thereby providing his family with an enviable lifestyle. Ron loved helping others meet their IT challenges, “To me it was never work, especially as I enjoyed every moment teaching and learning something new every day, plus of course the luxurious lifestyle it provided our family.”

“Oh, how little did I know what was around the corner!”

Even his consultant didn’t understand what had caused his condition. There was no known cure, nor could he prescribe any medication to treat it. Ron would just have to learn to live with it as best he could. He was also told, there is one good thing about IBM, there is rarely any accompanying pain, just a slow progressive muscle deterioration.

Two years later, in 2008 Ron was confined to a wheelchair, needing help and support from his wife Michele and daily carers.  All of the wealth and assets which they had built up together over the years went into Ron’s care and rehabilitation needs.

Armed with a philosophy taught by his Grandfather, in Ron’s formative years, “You can do anything you want in your life, my boy, always make sure you enjoy it, and that it will do no harm to anyone else, especially you!  Remember too that everything happens for a reason, always look for a positive reason and you will find it!”

Ron began to seek out a solution to this new challenge, one of the biggest he ever had to face!

After five years of barely coping and trying to do everything possible to get well, sadly in August 2013, he ended up in an A & E unit, being fed a mixture of morphine and other drugs every 2 hours, and still in excruciating pain. The severe pain he endured was nothing to do with the diagnosis of IBM, as an MRI scan, suggested by his Naturopath, was to reveal. It was from an arthritic growth around vertebrae C6 and C7 on his spine!

His Naturopath recommended a spice, used for 6,000 years, called ‘turmeric’, mixed with black pepper and ginger, to be taken daily.  Within 12 days of taking this, along with water, plus a more nutritious vegetarian diet, his pain soon disappeared, and has never returned.

From a discussion with a friend in Italy, Ron learnt that fresh ‘alkaline ionized water’ was much better for recovering one’s health than mineral water from a plastic bottle. Just one year later, Ron changed the water he drank to ‘alkaline ionized water’ from the Enagic© company in Japan.

Pain from the arthritic growth, the migraines, the acid-reflux and the stomach problems, all gradually disappeared. There were no more sleepless nights or chronic fatigue. The best thing is that now, 3 years later, he is able to walk again, something no one could have predicted!

Every day Ron is getting a little stronger, more independent and able to help others once again. He firmly advocates another philosophy he learnt in the 1980’s, from Zig Ziglar, “You can have anything you want in life, if you will just help enough other people get what they want!”

Ron has succinctly described the lessons he has learnt from his experience and has a clear sense of mission about what he can do to help and encourage others.

“I am eternally grateful to have shared my life with my beautiful wife Michele for the last 33 years. Michele’s belief and encouragement in my career and then later in my rehabilitation and fight back to health has been phenomenal.  I am to have had her by my side throughout my life.

“In my opinion, Health is the key to a happy life, not Wealth.  It’s never too late to make the changes you need to make, to re-balance your body and rectify the neglect.  It had taken me more than seven years to find out what caused the problem, make changes and search for solutions.  Something I have enjoyed all my life is finding solutions!

“I now drink Energy Rich Water, which is Alkaline Ionised Water, take the best turmeric in the world and follow a great nutritious diet that suits me and more importantly, my needs.

“I can honestly say that without this in my life, I wouldn’t be able to function as I do today.  My life has been turned around by these three changes I have made. I started my recovery with the turmeric, a totally green diet of just vegetables, fruit and nuts, no meat or grain, no dairy products either, just plenty of water, the best water I could find!

“I am very conscious about returning to nature and eating a diet that nature provides for us. Understanding that our bodies need to be balanced at all times, is absolutely vital to our health and wellbeing.

“Living a healthy lifestyle plays a very important part too, keeping active as much as we can, with regular time off for relaxing, the ‘non-negotiable’ time we should all take for ourselves and our loved ones.

“Now I feel it is my duty to share my story with others who are suffering chronic and debilitating autoimmune conditions. I believe there is always something that can help you, simply going back to nature is a great way to start. It is natural, and it is safe.

“Yes, I made mistakes in my youth and took my body for granted, as many of us do. I should have taken more care. Knowing what I know now, I feel able to advise and help others going forward.

“Advances in medical science and the pharmaceutical industry cannot take away our basic daily needs for water and natural nutritious foods. 

“By going back to basics and understanding the nutritional values and benefits from the food we eat, we can begin to make a difference.

“Drinking plenty of Alkaline Ionized Water everyday has improved my digestion, flushed out the toxins thereby preventing headache and fatigue, and as I also discovered, can even aid in weight loss and maintenance.

“Our bodies are composed of up to 75% water and staying well-hydrated is critical to our optimum health and survival. I feel I have become a ‘hydration specialist’ with all the research I have carried out and the knowledge I have gained during my illness and subsequent recovery.

“I now want to share the knowledge and experience I have gained with others, and in turn help them find their path back to a healthy and enjoyable lifestyle. Life is here for us all to enjoy, with peace of mind, great bodily health plus the wealth to sustain it.
That is exactly what I believe I have managed to achieve once more, and I want to share it.”

Michele added: “Ron is a passionate caring man with so much kindness. He really is positive about his mission to share his story with others and hopefully enable them to avoid sickness in the future by making small changes in their lifestyle today.

“We have been through some very rough times, when his illness was at its worst.  Every day there are small positive changes to Ron’s health which we are both eternally grateful for.

“Through hard work and determination Ron will not give up hope.  He believes in the benefits of getting back to nature.  How nature intended us to live.

“It’s about finding what works best for your body.  No two people are the same, but an increasing number of people are suffering from such debilitating chronic illnesses for which they are told, there is no cure or treatment. 

“It’s time we took responsibility for our own health and well being and help others along the way to get back to health and fitness by making changes to diet and lifestyle.”

Ron concludes; “I have had an incredible life so far, met and worked with some amazing people.  I have a great network of friends and colleagues and look forward to making many more in the future.  My ultimate goal now is to help others achieve what they want from life, to show them how they can get what they really want and reach their lifetime goals, so that they too can live those dreams that so many aspire to.”

The Amazing Benefits of Turmeric

The Amazing Benefits of Turmeric

As a professional businessman who faced a major heath challenge, when just at the point of retirement with an expected future of enjoying the fruits of my diligent work in a career that I truly loved and enjoyed. I would like to share my story with you and the related  experiences I had in finding the cause and a subsequently a solution, just one part of which, took me to begin using an ancient far eastern herb called turmeric, a natural yet versatile remedy for many ailments, which goes back many thousands of years.

History

The history of Turmeric goes way back to the Ryukyu Dynasty and was found growing in the hills of a tiny Japanese tropical island called Okinawa. At the time the Island was part of the Chinese empire, and as many of you are well aware, turmeric spread out across the continent of Asia and was used as a spice herb in many far eastern recipes. One that many of you will recognise is the famous Indian dishes of ‘masala ‘ and ‘tandori’, both of which use turmeric to not only taste great, but notable for the rich ‘orange’ appearance as well.

I’d like to explain the health benefits of curcumin, the active ingredient in the autumn turmeric plant.

Benefits

Believe it or not, the curcumin from the turmeric plant, has been used for a long, long time! I mean it’s been used for over 4000 years in Asia, as the all-natural, almighty cure, medicine and relatively recently scientists in the Western world have  started to back up the incredible health benefits with over 9,000 medical research studies.

The first benefit is that it is highly anti-inflammatory, it is 100% safe and an all-natural pain relief remedy.

It relieves chronic joint pain, back pain, neck and muscle pain and even as I was to discover, invaluable for relieving the chronic and debilitating pain of arthritis.
After all it was the recommended use of turmeric, (prepared correctly) which was the turning point, in my own personal major health challenge, just 4 short years ago.

Another Benefit is that it can not only help people with Alzheimer’s by reducing the fever inside the brain, but turmeric  can even prevent Alzheimer’s , because it helps  improve the brain function memory level and everything from mood changes to the depression that occurs in patients with that condition.

Turmeric really is a powerful anti-inflammatory

Yet another major benefit, is that turmeric boosts the body’s antioxidant mechanism.
That means the ‘free radicals’ responsible for rapid aging, body decay, breakdown and damage to DNA, are effectively removed by the active ingredient curcumin from the autumn turmeric plant.

Everybody knows that heart disease is the biggest killer in the world, well turmeric (curcumin) works for heart disease, it’s known to clean up your arteries and if you have plaque in your arteries, turmeric will clean up and eventually eliminate that plaque.

Turmeric works to reduce high blood pressure and high cholesterol as well

Turmeric is also a great natural remedy for type 2 diabetes and works by balancing the blood sugar levels in the body.

There are many other benefits in turmeric, it supports detoxification, it’s an antibacterial, it will fight against colds, coughing and influenza, it’s a home remedy for asthma.

Recently several studies have shown, that turmeric can decrease cancer cells, by reducing and eliminating the damaged cells.

Many people have discovered that it also helps to break down fat cells, thereby helping you
with weight loss.

Think it sounds too good to be true?

I suggest you check out the benefits for yourself!  I did, and it has certainly helped me to maintain and improve my chronic auto-immune condition.

Thank you, and I do hope you enjoyed reading this post.

Your Immune System – Video

Your Immune System…

Your Amazing Immune System

(Yes I am talking about Yours – We all have one! )

What is the human Immune System?

The immune system is the body’s defence against infectious organisms and other invaders. Through a series of steps called the immune response, the immune system attacks organisms and substances that invade body systems and cause disease. (source – kidshealth.org/parent/general/body_basics/immune.html)

What brought me here…

10 Years ago I was diagnosed with a rare neuromuscular disorder, and very soon afterwards I was informed that it was an ‘auto-immune’ condition, and I just had to learn to live with it. There was no recommended treatment, the was no suggestion as to what might have caused my rare condition, therefore there was no known cure either!

Here is a diagram which helped me understand more about ‘auto-immune’

I have to say here that I am not medically qualified, all I have done is researched the term ‘auto-immune’.  I had similar challenges to those shown under the ‘Internal Threat’ in this diagram, and also because I was told I had an ‘auto-immune’ problem.

Here is an Interesting video I saw today on a Ted Ed Talk, by Emma Bryce

Our Immune System

Our immune system

Is Our Immune System Compromised?

Or are we being misled about our immune system and how it is actually doing its best, to heal us?

I pose this question in light of recent evidence with regard to contemporary medicine and its treatment of cancer. one of the foremost killers in today’s society, in fact, the #1 cause of death in the United States of America today.

A change of Diagnosis…

As many of you know, I have been looking for the ’cause’ of my particular form of the neuromuscular disorder, named as, Inclusion Body Myositis (IBM), at my conclusive diagnosis in March 2006. Over the last 2 years, my consultant neurologist has re-considered my original diagnosis because my muscles have not deteriorated the same as other patients with IBM. I was therefore re-assessed after a series of genetic tests, MRI scan, blood tests, respiratory analysis, and an echocardiogram, to be presented with a new diagnosis of Myofibrilla Myopathy.

My ‘quest’ remains the same, looking for the ’cause’ of my own disorder…

After recent changes to my food & drink regime, and having moved on to a more ‘alkaline’ source of nourishment, I still need to confirm, what really did cause my neuromuscular disorder, in my last 10 – 15 years of my normal working life. Was it a hereditary problem? Was it my lifestyle? Was it down to where I spent those last few years? there are indeed so many questions…

I do count myself fortunate, in that my parents did not use contemporary medication to treat our ills, but did resort to natural remedies and homeopathic solutions for the majority of my early life. I knew early on about some of the allergies we had in our family, and certain foods were avoided because of those allergies.

I did not understand any of it at the time but just accepted it all. I learnt that my father suffered from severe migraines, because of an allergy to dairy products, whilst I was blaming mine on alcohol, and did for many years, hence I never really liked alcohol and drank it in moderation, eventually becoming almost ‘tea-total’ for several years, because of my assumption regarding my own migraine attacks. I also avoided cheese for the rest of my life too, as it seemed to really upset me more, the older I became…

Does your ‘Blood type’ make a difference?..

Whilst working in Gibraltar, I made yet another discovery… I was, after all, bemused by my lack of balance and wondering what was happening to me, as I did have the early signs of my neuromuscular condition as far back as 1996, and this was in 2001. I was asked, by a colleague, did I know my blood type? I had no idea, but just assumed it was the normal Type O, as most people were.

It turned out to be A rhesus positive, which was a comparatively rarer blood type than most. I was then shown a book called ‘Eat Right for your Type’ by Dr. Peter D’Adamo, which gave me yet another insight into my allergies and dislikes of certain foods. Blood type A+, was for me, another re-assurance, that my own body was telling me the truth… once again! Most of the foods to avoid if you were type A+ were listed right there in that book, and I was virtually following them all!

My ‘quest’ started right back there, in my ‘Gibraltar’ years, when this disorder was really beginning to impact on many of my physical abilities!

Highly acidic drink intake…

As you are now aware, I was virtually tea-total for many years, in my late forties and early fifties, so I used to drink, what I now know to be, non-alcoholic acidic beverages, Cola’s, Soda’s, Fruit Juices, ’00’ beers… tonic water and ginger ales… I was also the go-to man for the ‘ant-acid’ tablets, with which to quell the chronic ‘acid-reflux’, I had and thought was just ‘part of life’…

I think I know why now!…

MY MISSION TODAY, HOWEVER, IS TO POSE THE QUESTION – ‘IS OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM COMPROMISED?’… OR IS IT ACTUALLY DOING ITS BEST, TO ‘SELF’ HEAL US…

I have been following a guy on Facebook, ‘Chris Beat Cancer’, who has an alternative approach to Cancer treatment, and has succeeded in actually beating Cancer, himself, hence the title of his FB page. This leads me to yet another person who has been studying Cancer and the way it has been treated because he lost several members of his family, and notably his father, within 27 weeks of diagnosis, which he found very traumatic.

Ty Bollinger has a site called ‘The Truth About Cancer’, and he has been on a ‘quest’, traveling around the US, in order to find out why his father died in such tragic circumstances…

He calls it his ‘Quest for Cures…‘ where he travels the length and breadth of the United States, talking to many physicians and specialists, to find out why cancer has grown so much and come to be the #1 killer disease in the United States of America, despite all the medical expertise there is in the western world today.

He started an 11 part presentation on Monday night 30th March, and the links are provided to those recordings for us all to watch and learn from, by signing up to receive his free offer, to let as many people know what is happening to prevent not only cancer but many other relatively new rare and chronic diseases, spreading throughout our world today.

I think you will all find his ‘Quest’ extremely interesting and informative, as I and my family have.


I understand they will all eventually be available on YouTube, but at the moment, you will find them on his site at The Truth About Cancer 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ty Bollinger, for all the dedication and hard work he has put into his ‘ ‘Quest for Cures’, because I believe it is not only going to help many others understand so much more about Cancer, but also help us all to understand more about our ‘dedicated’ and ‘hard-working’ internal ‘Immune system’ in its own daily Quest, helping our bodies retain a good and healthy environment in which we can all live…

I do hope you enjoyed this post, another will follow soon…

An Eagle Kiss

An Eagle Kiss

I found this touching story, and it just seemed very apt at this time. I was inspired to write this following a post from a very kind friend, who equated me and my efforts to an Eagle!…

His exact words were: ”  You are an eagle amongst men, Ron, and I know that you will inspire more and more people as you go along your journey. Hang tight, my friend, for many of us need to hear your words of courage and never forget that whilst your body may not be up to it, your spirit will always soar the highest heights and be an example to many!”

Thank you Mark, for those very kind words…

I was, as you can imagine, very touched, by his sentiment, and felt extremely humble and honoured by his words. Those words have indeed uplifted me!

———————————————————————-

I came across this story yesterday, and thought I would post it, as I believe it would help many other people, as it has me, with my recent ‘health’ issues, this past week. There are, sadly, many other folks out there, with far more serious health challenges, than I.

I would like to think that this story might help them too…

Jeff Guidry & “FREEDOM”

This is the kind of story you need,

When it seems like the world is spiralling out of control…

Not many people get a picture of this proud bird, snuggled up next to them!

 

FREEDOM AND I HAVE BEEN TOGETHER 11 YEARS THIS SUMMER.
SHE CAME IN AS A BABY IN 1998 WITH TWO BROKEN WINGS.

HER LEFT WING DOESN’T OPEN ALL THE WAY EVEN AFTER SURGERY;
IT WAS BROKEN IN 4 PLACES.

SHE’S MY BABY.
WHEN FREEDOM CAME IN SHE COULD NOT STAND.

BOTH WINGS WERE BROKEN,

SHE WAS EMACIATED AND COVERED IN LICE.

WE MADE THE DECISION TO GIVE HER A CHANCE AT LIFE.

SO I TOOK HER TO THE VET’S OFFICE.

FROM THEN ON, I WAS ALWAYS AROUND HER.

WE HAD HER IN A HUGE DOG CARRIER WITH THE TOP OFF,

IT WAS LOADED UP WITH SHREDDED NEWSPAPER FOR HER TO LIE IN.

I USED TO SIT AND TALK TO HER, URGING HER TO LIVE, TO FIGHT.

SHE WOULD JUST LIE THERE LOOKING AT ME, WITH THOSE BIG BROWN EYES.

WE ALSO HAD TO TUBE FEED HER FOR 6 WEEKS.
EVEN BY THEN, SHE STILL COULDN’T STAND.

IT GOT TO THE POINT WHERE A DECISION HAD TO BE MADE TO

EUTHANIZE HER, IF SHE COULDN’T STAND IN A WEEK.

YOU KNOW YOU DON’T WANT TO CROSS THAT LINE BETWEEN TORTURE AND REHAB.

IT LOOKED LIKE DEATH WAS WINNING.

SHE WAS DUE TO BE PUT DOWN THAT FRIDAY.

I WAS SUPPOSED TO COME IN ON THE THURSDAY AFTERNOON.

I DIDN’T WANT TO GO TO THE CENTER THAT THURSDAY.

I COULDN’T BEAR THE THOUGHT OF HER BEING EUTHANIZED.
BUT, I WENT ANYWAY, AND WHEN I WALKED IN,

EVERYONE WAS GRINNING FROM EAR TO EAR.

I WENT IMMEDIATELY BACK TO HER CAGE;

THERE SHE WAS, STANDING ON HER OWN, A BIG BEAUTIFUL EAGLE.

SHE WAS READY TO LIVE.

I WAS JUST ABOUT IN TEARS BY THEN, THAT WAS A VERY GOOD DAY.

WE KNEW SHE COULD NEVER FLY.

SO THE DIRECTOR ASKED ME TO ‘GLOVE TRAIN’ HER.

I GOT HER USED TO THE GLOVE,  THEN TO JESSES.

WE STARTED DOING EDUCATION PROGRAMS, FOR SCHOOLS IN WESTERN WASHINGTON .

WE WOUND UP IN THE NEWSPAPERS, RADIO (BELIEVE IT OR NOT) AND SOME TV.

‘MIRACLE PETS’ EVEN DID A SHOW ABOUT US.

—————–

In the spring of 2000,

I was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

 

I HAD STAGE 3, WHICH IS NOT GOOD.

(ONE MAJOR ORGAN PLUS EVERYWHERE)

SO I WOUND UP DOING 8 MONTHS OF CHEMO.

LOST THE HAIR – THE WHOLE BIT, I MISSED A LOT OF WORK.

WHEN I FELT GOOD ENOUGH, I WOULD GO TO SARVEY AND TAKE FREEDOM OUT FOR WALKS.

FREEDOM WOULD ALSO COME TO ME IN MY DREAMS AND HELP ME FIGHT THE CANCER.

IT HAPPENED TIME AND TIME AGAIN.

———————–

Fast forward…  to:  November 2000.

THE DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING, I WENT IN FOR MY LAST CHECK-UP.
I WAS TOLD THAT IF THE CANCER WAS NOT ALL GONE AFTER 8 ROUNDS OF CHEMO,

MY LAST OPTION WAS A STEM CELL TRANSPLANT.

ANYWAY, THEY DID THE TESTS AND I HAD TO COME BACK MONDAY FOR THE RESULTS.

I WENT IN MONDAY, AND I WAS TOLD THAT…

ALL THE CANCER WAS GONE.

——————————-

So the first thing I did was to go up to Sarvey and take the big girl out for a walk.

————————————–

IT WAS MISTY AND COLD.

I WENT TO HER FLIGHT AND JESSED HER UP AND WE WENT OUT FRONT TO THE TOP OF THE HILL.

I HADN’T SAID A WORD TO FREEDOM;

BUT SOMEHOW SHE KNEW.

SHE LOOKED AT ME AND WRAPPED BOTH HER WINGS AROUND ME,

SO TIGHT, I COULD FEEL THEM PRESSING IN ON MY BACK.
(I WAS ENGULFED IN EAGLE WINGS)

SHE TOUCHED MY NOSE WITH HER BEAK AND STARED INTO MY EYES,

WE JUST STOOD THERE LIKE THAT FOR… I DON’T KNOW HOW LONG.

THAT WAS A MAGIC MOMENT.

WE HAVE BEEN SOUL MATES EVER SINCE SHE CAME IN.

THIS IS A VERY SPECIAL BIRD.

————————-

On a side note:

I HAVE HAD PEOPLE WHO WERE SICK COME UP TO US WHEN WE ARE OUT,

FREEDOM HAS SOME KIND OF HOLD ON THEM.

I ONCE HAD A GUY WHO WAS TERMINAL COME UP TO US, I LET HIM HOLD HER.
HIS KNEES JUST ABOUT BUCKLED, HE SWORE HE COULD FEEL HER POWER COURSE THROUGH HIS BODY

———————————————

I HAVE SO MANY STORIES LIKE THAT…

I NEVER FORGET THE HONOUR I HAVE OF BEING SO CLOSE TO SUCH A MAGNIFICENT SPIRIT AS FREEDOM.

HOPE YOU ENJOYED THIS!

Electrolysed Reduced Water

Electrolysed Reduced Water

Who am I and what experience do I have to write about this?

First of all, you need to understand that I am not a doctor, but just a man who has found a solution that helps him live with a neuromuscular condition, who, through my desire to find out what caused my health challenges in the twilight of my life, discovered a way that I could enjoy greater comfort and a more fulfilling life, than the one I was facing at the time of my diagnosis some ten years ago.

My mission, therefore, is to help as many others as I am able, with the knowledge and experience I have gained, since my diagnosis, by showing them that there are solutions, including a way of living a more comfortable existence, by making some positive changes to the lifestyle they currently enjoy.

****************************

What is Electrolysed Reduced Water or ERW?

ERW is normal tap water, which has gone through an ‘electrolysis’ process, in order for it to be return to its original state, free of contaminants, such as chemicals and toxins, yet retaining it’s original healthy mineral elements.

The resulting water from this process comes out in seven different varieties.
4 of which can are drinking water and the other 3 for, cleaning, disinfecting and nutritional to the skin and plants.

I was introduced to what is called ‘Kangen’ water, ‘Kangen’ in Japanese meaning “Return to Origin”, as I understood meant back to nature.

Water such as the ‘Kangen’ water is produced naturally in a few parts of the world.

Lourdes,  France
Tlacote, Mexico
Nordenau, Germany, and
Karimabad (The Hunza peoples), Northeast Pakistan

In all of these regions you will find water that has just come of the mountain regions and has not yet been affected by the modern day environment. It is therefore very healthy to drink and also has healing properties too.

It was this water, shown to me a few years ago, which has made all the difference in my life.

Why Should You Drink Water?

Why Should You Drink Water?

You have probably heard that water makes up over 70% of the body, right? Water is part of all body fluids and is vital to the proper function of the body’s organ systems.

It should be obvious then that the quality of the water you drink is extremely important. For your body to be at optimal health, you should drink only the purest and cleanest water possible.

Consider these interesting facts about water:

  • Two-thirds of us  do not drink the recommended 8-10 glasses of water daily.
  • Continual loss of water from the body can slow down the metabolic rate by as much as 3%.
  • Over one-third of us have suppressed their thirst mechanism to the point where it is often misinterpreted as hunger.
  • The number one reason for daytime sleepiness and low energy is water loss.
  • By the time a person feels thirsty, his or her body has lost 1-3% of its total water amount, which can affect memory and the ability to concentrate.
  • Water naturally moisturizes skin from the inside out, giving you a fresh looking complexion and a beautiful glow.
  • Water naturally carries more substances than any other liquid found on Earth, including vitamins, minerals and nutrients.

Drink Alkaline Ionized Water!

It is clear that drinking water is paramount for a body that functions at a healthy level. Some common sources of drinking water found in city water systems, wells and even springs may contain chemicals like chlorine, fluoride, pesticides and more. Despite their use, these chemicals are not good for the body.

Avoid the worry and drink Alkaline Ionised Water for optimal hydration!

Alkaline Body Balance

Alkaline Body Balance

Wow! What does alkaline body balance mean?

Another chapter in my journey with Myofibrillar Myopathy…

Acidity and Alkalinity in your body…

One of the new things I have learnt, is concerning the Acid – Alkaline pH levels in the body, and how similar it is, to the measurement we all take regarding our body temperature! So we should also take note of the fine line regarding our body’s pH levels, of Acidity and Alkalinity!

Well, what does pH level mean?- I hear you ask!, so here is a good definition for you, from Altered States Website

  1. pH: What does it mean? pH is the abbreviation for potential hydrogen. The pH of any solution is the measure of its hydrogen-ion concentration. The higher the pH reading, the more alkaline and oxygen rich the fluid is. The lower the pH reading, the more acidic and oxygen deprived the fluid is. The pH range is from 0 to 14, with 7.0 being neutral. Anything above 7.0 is alkaline, anything below 7.0 is considered acidic.

So pH is the abbreviation for ‘potential hydrogen’.

I’ll try and bring this explanation down to a more understandable level…

Acid Reflux, as an example…

It’s quite simple for me, because for most of my adult life, I have suffered from this burning sensation at the back of my throat after I have had some drink or food, that maybe was a little too rich? It was of course, ‘acid reflux‘ or ‘heartburn‘, as our elderly relatives used to explain…

I used to ‘cure’ it by taking ‘baking soda’ in water,(my late mother’s solution!) and the like of other alkaline substances acquired from the local pharmacy!  I am sure you all know them ” Alka S…..r , “Gavi…n“, “Ren…s“… the list of them I am sure, goes on…

I was renowned for always having a ‘cure’, on board, in our boating days, when we did imbibe in some pretty rich food and drink concoctions, many of which my stomach decided to reject! So a dip into Ron’s secret stash of suitable tablets was a regular occurrence, by me and many of my boating friends!..

Recently I have found out so much more about these things we all accepted as part of life’s rich patterns… I discovered that I was actually just chronically thirsty!! Yes, chronically!! Many of us don’t realise how very clever our bodies are, because our internal systems just get on and do their best to ‘fix’ all the stupid things we may do.  Like drinking too much alcohol… eating to many sweets… drinking very ‘acidic’ drinks all day!.. Yes, we all feel a bit worse for wear at the time, but just continue to accept the ‘bad hangovers’ or in my case the severe bout of ‘heartburn‘…  Whilst being told, “Oh don’t worry it will soon go away!”

Well, I have found a simple answer, and it’s all to do with the Alkaline Body Balance, and Dehydration!

Dehydration?..

Not drinking enough water everyday, is our problem today! We expect our bodies to cope with it and they do!


The trouble is not always apparent to us though, in how incredibly hard our bodies are trying to rebalance everything inside!

Keeping us as healthy as we need to be, is a major task for our internal systems, in today’s modern world of processed foods, high levels of sugar, salt, dairy, and all the chemicals.  Food and Drinks industries are inserting many harmful additives into our foods, for a multitude of reasons of their own, we are not very often aware of. To combat, deterioration caused by the delay in transportation, from the point of harvesting though to the dinner table. Never mind the chemicals which are put in the soil and sprayed onto the crops before harvesting!

The majority of our food today is processed so badly for our consumption, that its is more often than not doing more harm than good, because the Industry has this insatiable desire to make bigger profits, by ‘cutting back’, wherever they can, yet still being compliant by labelling all the foods with ‘eat-by’ and sell-by’ dates, in the huge supermarket chains we visit, on a weekly basis!

Each of our own internal body systems, are failing to cope with all the additional ‘waste’, the Food Industry is putting in our food, whilst at the same time, insisting it is ‘good’ for us! Then our internal systems, are forced to  take stored nutrients, which fail to come from our food intake, from other parts of our body, in order to keep our body balanced in a natural way, and correctly.

Body Temperature and Acid/Alkaline Balance…

It is essential for us to maintain a good body temperature. 98.4°F = perfect, 104°F = HELP!, even as low as 94°F the other way is also going to raise the alarm!  If we don’t maintain our temperature at the optimum 98.4°F, we will have serious problems in staying well and alive!

The same goes for our water balance too! Neutral pH is 7.3pH, but an ‘acidic level’ below 6.5 pH will leave us open to all sorts of diseases, because disease grows in an acidic environment!  We need to keep our bodies at the optimum level of a neutral pH balance of 7.3 – 7.4 pH, and we can do this by drinking higher levels of Alkaline Ionized Water from between 8.5 ph and 9.5 pH.

Our body is made up of 70% water, so it needs to be the right type of water, to not only keep our body balance, but also to ‘hydrate’ our bodies, and help the body to ‘detox’ naturally with anti-oxidants too.  ( i.e. it cannot be too acidic – hence the ‘acid reflux’ which leads to ill health, chronic disorders, such as cancer, heart attacks, strokes and many of the so called ‘hidden’ disorders, so many of us are experiencing today!) You can find out more, from a free eBook and newsletter, provide for you on my other site Alkaline Ionized Water .

We should maintain, a ‘neutral’ pH balance with the fluids in our bodies, and that’s where our body’s internal systems come into play, to keep it there, in the right parts and at the right time too! Our stomachs, for exampneed an acidic environment in order to process our food, but that acidic state can also become imbalanced if we consume too many of the different processed foods and beverages.  I used to experience all of the following symptoms on a regular basis, of ‘acid reflux’, ‘flatulence’ and incredibly painful, ‘stomach aches’!

The problem is, we get so used to it all and just accept it, then we are surprised when we get other problems in later life! Yet, we still accept it, because we are told; “It’s you’re age, you must expect this when you get older!”

What sort of confidence trick is that? We have a problem, and we are still expected to ignore it!!

A proven solution for me…

Did you ever drink too much and get a hangover?
Did you have too much of the wrong food, and wake up with a headache?
Have you ever got so stressed out that you ended up with a migraine?

I did and I have experienced all the above!…

I wonder how many of you reading this have had the same experience?

For me, there was a simple solution, but I only found it it recently!

It was ‘WATER!‘…

I was ‘dehydrated!’… No, not at the level you think, I wasn’t gasping for water or anything like that! I just was not ‘drinking’ enough water everyday, to help keep my own body’s internal systems running as efficiently as they should be!

Dehydration, doesn’t manifest itself, by letting you know through your mouth, that you need water, but through the hard work , your body constantly has to do, to keep up with the poor quality food intake, but it does manifest itself in other ways! (This is explained in finite detail in many studies, I have recently discovered, and I can refer to in another post.)

Your body is, in effect, ‘stealing’ nutrients from your bones, your liver, your pancreas and other organs of your body, then building up excessive wastes in yet other parts of your body, so that it has a chance to cope with your poor quality food and drink habits. It shows in places like ‘clogged up arteries’ ‘blood clots’ and waste that remains in the intestines, because there is only so much the body can dispose of in any one session! ( you all know where I am going with that one!!)

We hear of things like ‘colonic irrigation’, because there is too much waste in the ‘colon’. We hear of ‘gastric band’ procedure to get rid of waste ‘fatty’ tissues, which we have built up, through our poor quality food intake! I could go on and on and on..

I am not a doctor! just a person with a chronic ‘hidden’ disorder, that most medics have never heard of, with no known cause, no recommended treatment, and certainly no successful medical/chemical cure! I am determined to find out the cause, whatever happens… So I am looking at the so called ‘alternative’ medicines, but I prefer to call them, ‘back to basic’ “Original” remedies and treatments, based on natural organic grown produce.

One final word, for your entertainment…

One simple thing I did find out, which I do hope will amuse you at least… I found a cure for a hangover!… Yes, a real cure!! A glass of Alkaline Ionized Water, before you go to sleep and, ‘Hey presto!’ no hangover!!!

That’s enough for today!, I hope you enjoyed this as well, another episode soon…
