14 Steps To Cut Out Processed Foods & Begin Eating Real Food

Published

on

Making dietary changes can be tough. It is by far one of the biggest topics I discuss with people when it comes to questions about making healthy lifestyle changes.  One of the toughest parts? We are addicted to many foods and how they make us feel. Processed foods are so important to get off of as they contain a lot of ingredients that are very poor for our health and cause many chronic illnesses. Things like artificial colors, sweeteners, preservatives and low quality ingredients are a recipe for poor health.

Certain foods like sugar or coffee for example, come with certain addictive qualities, so trying to cut them or other foods out can be tough. In other cases, it may not even be addictive qualities in the food, the way it makes you feel or the habitual nature of eating it. For example, when you eat heavier foods you get this feeling of being heavy or full. Over time, we associate this feeling with “OK I’m full, time to stop eating.” Whereas when you eat other foods that provide all the nutrients and energy you need but don’t make you feel as full, you begin feeling like you are still hungry or crave the ‘full’ feeling. This can be one of the toughest parts of making dietary changes.

Each of us respond differently to food changes as we all have different levels of motivation and will power as well. For some of us, going cold turkey is an option, while others take it more slowly and let the body adjust along the way. Either way, it’s important to take steps to better what we put in our bodies as it’s a key element in determining our health. Emotions & thoughts are important too, but we will leave that for this article.

So how can we get ourselves off of processed foods easily? Here is a simple plan you can begin implementing one week at a time. After about 1 season, you should be good to go on eating healthy and clean. Of course, you can speed this process up as much as you like to get going even faster.

In this method it begins week by week and in each week you focus on something new. As you begin implementing what you need to adjust in that week, go onto the next week but continue cutting out what you did each week prior.

Week 1:  Eat two fruits and/or vegetables per meal. By eating a minimum of two different fruits or vegetables (preferably organic) with every breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you will get your fruit and veggie intake up enough to begin hitting the daily recommended minimums. This will already start making you feel better.

Week 2: “Real” beverages! Beverages will be limited to water, coffee, tea, kombucha, almond, rice or coconut milks, and ACTUAL fruit or vegetable juice. This means fruit juices containing only fruits and water. No sugars or artificial sweeteners, concentrates, preservatives etc. I know this might seem tough at first but stick to it and it will make a big difference. For coffee, try and limit to one cup a day.

Week 3: Meat – If you eat meat, try and consume locally raised and organic if you can. Meat consumption will also be limited to 2 – 4 servings per week, and will not be the “focal point” of the meal. Meat is extremely over eaten especially in North American culture. Humans do not even require meat yet we eat it in extreme abundance which leads to heart disease. The more you can limit it, the better.

Week 4: Cut out fast foods and deep-fried foods as much as possible. Avoiding this will be a big one as there are a lot of chemicals in fast foods. If you can also cut out deep-fried foods, this will help greatly in cutting out unhealthy oils.

Week 5: OK, It’s been about a month and now it’s time for a step I think is very important. Observe how you feel so far. Are you noticing differences in your energy? Have pains and headaches decreased or increased? Do you feel more mentally aware? Looking at various ways you feel will get you to see whether your body might be going through addiction withdrawal or if you perhaps were mentally addicted to foods and are craving to have them back. This is a good point to simply see how you feel while continuing what you’ve done along the way.

Week 6: Try out two new whole foods. Whole foods are simply foods that have been untouched from their natural state and haven’t had anything added to them. So you can go to the grocery store and pick a few new whole foods and try them out. This will get you finding new favorites you enjoy.

Week 7: Cut out foods labelled low-fat, lite or non-fat food products. The reason for this is in the process of making things low fat or non-fat, most of the time more sugars or carbs are added to the equation which is why many people still gain weight when eating these products. For years we have seen these products not work. It’s about eating whole foods as much as possible.

Week 8: Consume 100% whole grain or sprouted grain breads. White flour is a really tough thing for the body to digest. Even whole wheat bread is not much better. The healthier the bread you eat, the easier your body can digest the bread and keep you intestines clear of gluten so you can absorb nutrients more easily. If you can limit your bread intake to 2 or 3 slices every couple of days, that would be a great step.

Week 9: Stop eating when you feel full. This goes back to something I mentioned above, when you feel full during a meal, take the note from your body and stop eating.

Week 10: Cut out refined or artificial sweeteners. This is probably one of the biggest ones. The effects of sweeteners like aspartame and high fructose corn syrup on your body is so shocking that they should be illegal. In fact, aspartame was illegal for a long time until the wrong people got in power and made it legal. You can find out more about that here.  Also try and cut out refined sugars like white sugar, brown sugar, sucanat, splenda, stevia, agave, corn syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, brown rice syrup, and cane juice. Use things like honey, coconut sugar and maple syrup to sweeten things.

Week 11: Cut out refined oils. The more oils are processed the more they become bad for our bodies to consume. Cut out hydrogenated oils, vegetable oil, organic vegetable oil, soybean oil, corn oil, canola oil, organic canola oil, margarine, and grape seed oil. Focus on better oils like olive or hemp oil in salads or unscented coconut oil for cooking.

Week 12: Eat local foods. Do you best to include locally grown and organic foods into your meals as much as possible Begin with one per meal if you can. Depending on the growing season you can find things like fruits, vegetables, eggs, grains, nuts, and sweeteners like honey.

Week 13: Nothing artificial! This is where you cut out anything that is artificial like colors, sweeteners and flavours. You should already be half way on this one by the time you get here.

Week 14: No more than 5 ingredients! When choosing packaged foods, look for no more than 5 ingredients total. This will usually mean you are getting a less processed and more natural product. Yes, it won’t keep as long, but that is a good one!

Even if you are unable to keep to this perfectly, keeping all of this in mind and using it as much as possible is going to make a big impact on cutting out processed foods and beginning to eat a lot more healthy. If you are able to afford some organic foods but not all, be sure to check out which foods are most important to buy organic!

Scientists Find A Strong Link Between Infamous Chemical That’s Still “Present In Everyone” & Autism

Published

on

“Children today are sicker than they were a generation ago. From childhood cancers to autism, birth defects and asthma, a wide range of childhood diseases and disorders are on the rise. Our assessment of the latest science leaves little room for doubt; pesticides are one key driver of this sobering trend.” — October 2012 report by Pesticide Action Network North America (PANNA) (source)(source)

Perhaps the most important thing to mention when it comes to autism is that there is no biological marker for it. It can’t be identified, and those who receive an autism, or ASD diagnosis are simply diagnosed with it based on behaviour and social tendencies. It’s a large spectrum, with some being completely and clearly neurologically impaired, and others on the other end whom which you wouldn’t be able to tell have an ASD diagnosis and everything else in between. This is always important to acknowledge that, when it comes to autism, one person on one end of the spectrum could be damaged in a specific biological way, due to environmental factors discussed in this article, and another may not be damaged at all, in any way. In fact, some of them might even be more ‘enhanced,’ for lack of a better term.  Having received multiple labels myself as a child, I have come to learn that these labels are simply, for the most part, made up terms for big pharma to make trillions of dollars of off, it’s a big problem and one that has yet to be addressed adequately. Your child is not different, they are most likely damaged, something that may be hard for many to swallow, but we can’t keep ignoring all of the evidence that’s continually emerging by labelling those with autism as unique, which is ignoring the real cause of what’s really going on here, pure brain damage….

According to a senior researcher from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Dr. Stephanie Seneff, at the rate, we’re going, “by 2025, one in two children will be autistic.” (source) She’s been outspoken about the consistent and strong correlation between the rising use of Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide (with its active ingredient glyphosate) on crops and the rising rates of autism. Her research also reveals that the side effects of autism mimic glyphosate toxicity and deficiencies.

A few years ago, I wrote about a study coming out of the University of California, Davis, which determined that pregnant women who live in close proximity to land and farms where chemical pesticides are/were applied experienced a seventy-five percent risk of having a child with autism spectrum disorder, or some other developmental disorder. You can read more about that and access the study here.

Now, a new study has been published that implicates DDT as a possible trigger for autism. Having been an avid autism researcher for more than a decade now, it’s clear to me that there are several environmental triggers that can and do lead to an autism diagnosis, and multiple pesticides, including ones we used in the past, like DDT, are clear culprits. Others include prescription drugs during fetal development, vaccines, wifi radiation and more.

DDT was a commonly used pesticide designed to combat malaria-transmitting mosquitoes, it was banned in 1972 because it was linked to multiple health ailments, and clearly very dangerous, very similar to the ones that are falling under intense scrutiny today. It was banned years decades after its use, and is still found in some soils today, as well as many waterways. It takes more than a dozen years to break down.

The results of the study were published in the  American Journal of Psychiatry, and the research was was drawn from mothers who were confirmed to have DDT in their body, just as many today do when it comes to other commonly sprayed chemicals, like glyphosate, which is highly detectable in most peoples urine across North America as well as Europe.

According to the lead author, Alan Brown,

DDT is still persisting in the environment and is detectable in almost everyone I would not say women should be conerned but itis important to be informed that at least this one chemical exposure is related to increased risk.”

“DDT is still persisting in the environment and is detectable in almost everyone,” lead author Dr. Alan Brown told IFLScience. “I would not say women should be concerned but it is important to be informed that at least this one chemical exposure is related to increased risk.”

It’s crazy because this chemical was sprayed on crops worldwide for decades, and seemed to have been replaced with chemicals that are just as harmful.

“What’s appalling is that we have known about these dangers for decades yet have done little about it. Nearly 20 years ago, scientists at the National Research Council called for swift action to protect young and growing bodies from pesticides. Yet today, U.S. children continue to be exposed to pesticides that are known to be harmful in places they live, learn and play.”

 Pesticide Action Network North America (PANNA) (source)

It’s becoming quite clear that what we call ‘autism’ is linked with environmental factors, and goes far beyond genetics, but our health authorities don’t want to admit that. Because if environmental factors are causing autism, and it’s not genetics, then we have a big problem on our hands, especially for multiple corporations basically control the government, and what science is deemed credible…

This is why we haven’t seen a ban on these pesticides despite the fact that it makes absolutely no sense to use them.

A study published a few years ago in the journal PLOS Computational Biology from researchers at the University of Chicago revealed that autism and intellectual disability (ID) (autism has nothing to do with intellectual disability) rates are linked with exposure to harmful environmental factors during congenital development, critical stages of fetal development.

According to that study,

Autism appears to be strongly correlated with the rate of congentical malformations of the genitals in males acrossthe country. This gives an indicator of the environmental load and the effect is surprisingly strong…TRhe strongest predictors for autism were associated with the environment.

You can access that study and read more about that here.

There Are Multiple Factors

“The change in how agriculture is produced has brought, frankly, a change in the profile of diseases. We’ve gone from a pretty healthy population to one with a high rate of cancer, birth defects, and illnesses seldom seen before. . . . The tobacco companies denied the link between smoking and cancer, and took decades to recognize the truth. The biotech and agrochemical corporations are the same as the tobacco industry; they lie and favor business over the health of the population.” – Dr. Medardo Avila Vazquez, a pediatrician specializing in environmental health (source)(source)(source) (Related CE Article on the GMO/Cancer link in Argentina here

There are too many cancer-causing, autism causing, and brain damaging products to list that are all contributing to debilitating health effects that are on the rise exponentially. And yes, vaccines are one of many environmental factors that have contributed to this. To say vaccines aren’t implicated in autism is completely unscientific, yet the mainstream makes you feel stupid for even questioning them. Take aluminum for example, we now know that aluminum from vaccines does not exit the body, but ends up travelling to distant organs and eventually ends up in the brain. The brains of deceased autistic people were also recently opened and some of the highest brain aluminum content in history was found.  This is just one of many examples of how vaccines are connected to autism and other damage, which is why the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act has paid more than $4 billion. But that’s another topic in itself. But it’s important to mention.

It’s quite clear that they’re not completley safe.

Let’s not forget about Dr. William Thompson……

Vaccines, like environmental pesticides, prescription drugs during fetal development, and more have all been implicated in ASD, and that is an undeniable scientific fact. You can check out the related articles below for more information.

Natural Measles Immunity — Better Protection & More Long-Term Benefits Than Vaccines

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Natural immunity compared to the immunity provided by vaccines is extremely different. Public health authorities have made a case for measles eradication since the early 1980s, 50+ years of mass measles vaccination have stopped nothing.

  • Reflect On:

    Why do pharmaceutical companies continue to make false claims about vaccines, using mass marketing? Why are they allowed to? And why does everyone believe them?

Stories about vaccines in the popular press tend to be unabashedly one-sided, generally portraying vaccination as a universal (and essential) “good” with virtually no downside. This unscientific bias is particularly apparent in news reports about measles, which often are little more than hysterical diatribes against the unvaccinated.

Although public health authorities have made a case for measles eradication since the early 1980s, 50-plus years of mass measles vaccination and high levels of vaccine coverage have not managed to stop wild and vaccine-strain measles virus from circulating. Routine measles vaccination also has had some worrisome consequences. Perhaps the most significant of these is the shifting of measles risks to age groups formerly protected by natural immunity. Specifically, modern-day occurrences of measles have come to display a “bimodal” pattern in which “the two most affected populations are infants aged less than 1 year and adults older than 20 years”—the very population groups in whom measles complications can be the most clinically severe. As one group of researchers has stated, “The common knowledge indicating that measles [as well as mumps and rubella] are considered as benign diseases dates back to the pre-vaccine area and is not valid anymore.”

A little history

Before the introduction of measles vaccines in the 1960s, nearly all children contracted measles before adolescence, and parents and physicians accepted measles as a “more or less inevitablepart of childhood.” In industrialized countries, measles morbidity and mortality already were low and declining, and many experts questioned whether a vaccine was even needed or would be used.

Measles outbreaks in the pre-vaccine era also exhibited “variable lethality”; in specific populations living in close quarters (such as military recruits and residents of crowded refugee camps), measles mortality could be high, but even so, “mortality rates differed more than 10-fold across camps/districts, even though conditions were similar.” For decades both prior to and following the introduction of measles vaccination, those working in public health understood that poor nutrition and compromised health status were key contributors to measles-related mortality, with measles deaths occurring primarily “in individuals below established height and weight norms.” A study of measles mortality in war-torn Bangladesh in the 1970s found that most of the children who died were born either in the two years preceding or during a major famine.

Moms who get measles vaccines instead of experiencing the actual illness have less immunity to offer their babies, resulting in a ‘susceptibility gap’…

Measles vaccination and infants

Before the initiation of mass vaccination programs for measles, mothers who had measles as children protected their infants through the transfer of maternal antibodies. However, naturally acquired immunity and vaccine-induced immunity are qualitatively different. Moms who get measles vaccines instead of experiencing the actual illness have less immunity to offer their babies, resulting in a “susceptibility gap” between early infancy and the first ostensibly protective measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine at 12 to 15 months of age.

A Luxembourg-based study published in 2000 confirmed the susceptibility gap in an interesting way. The researchers compared serum samples from European adolescents who had been vaccinated around 18 months of age to serum samples from Nigerian mothers who had not been vaccinated but had experienced natural measles infection at a young age. They then looked at the capacity of the antibodies detected in the serum to “neutralize” various wild-type measles virus strains. The researchers found that the sera from mothers with natural measles immunity substantially outperformed the sera from the vaccinated teens: only two of 20 strains of virus “resisted neutralization” in the Nigerian mothers’ group, but 10 of 20 viral strains resisted neutralization in the vaccination group. This complex analysis led the authors to posit greater measles vulnerability in infants born to vaccinated mothers.

…many vaccines may eventually become susceptible to vaccine-modified measles…and consequently complicate measles control strategies

The Luxembourg researchers also noted that in the Nigerian setting, where widespread vaccination took hold far later than in Europe, the mothers in question had had “multiple contacts with endemic wild-type viruses” and that these repeat contacts had served an important booster function. One of the authors later conducted a study that examined this booster effect more closely. That study found that re-exposure to wild-type measles resulted in “a significantly prolonged antibody boost in comparison to [boosting through] revaccination.” Taking note of expanding vaccine coverage around the world and reduced circulation of wild-type measles virus, the researchers concluded in a third study that “many vaccinees may eventually become susceptible to vaccine-modified measles…and consequently, complicate measles control strategies.”

Bimodal distribution

With the disappearance of maternally endowed protection, what has happened to measles incidence in infants? A review of 53 European studies (2001–2011) focusing on the burden of measles in those “too young to be immunized” found that as many as 83% of measles cases in some studies and under 1% in other studies were in young infants.

At the same time, the predictions of an increased percentage of measles cases in older teens and adults have also come true. Reporting on a higher “death-to-case ratio” in the over-15 group in 1975 (not many years after widespread adoption of measles vaccination in the U.S.), a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) researcher wrote that the higher ratio could be “indicative of a greater risk of complications from measles, exposing the unprotected adult to the potential of substantial morbidity.”

In recent measles outbreaks in Europe and the U.S., large proportions of cases are in individuals aged 15 or older:

  • In the U.S., 57 of the 85 measles cases (67%) reported in 2016 were at least 15 years of age. U.S. researchers also have conservatively estimated that at least 9% of measles cases occur in vaccinated individuals.
  • Among several thousand laboratory-confirmed cases of measles and an additional thousand “probable” or “possible” cases in Italy in 2017, 74% were in individuals at least 15 years of age, and 42% of those were hospitalized.
  • Examining a smaller number of laboratory-confirmed measles cases in Sicily (N=223), researchers found that half of the cases were in adults age 19 or older, and clinical complications were more common in adults compared to children (45% versus 26%). Likewise, about 44% of measles cases in France from 2008 to 2011 (N=305) were in adults (with an average age in their mid-20s), and the adults were more than twice as likely to be hospitalized as infected children.

Time to reevaluate

Pre-vaccination, most residents of industrialized countries accepted measles as a normal and even trivial childhood experience. Many people, including clinicians, also understood the interaction between measles and nutrition, and, in particular, the links between vitamin A deficiency and measles: “Measles in a child is more likely to exacerbate any existing nutritional deficiency, and children who are already deficient in vitamin A are at much greater risk of dying from measles.” Instead of inching the age of initial measles vaccination down to ever-younger ages, as is increasingly being proposed, there could be greater value in supporting children’s nutrition and building overall health—through practical interventions that “improve[e]…existing dietaries through the inclusion of relatively inexpensive foods that are locally available and well within the reach of the poor.”

Ironically, while acute childhood infections such as measles protect against cancer, the rise of chronic childhood illnesses (disproportionately observed in vaccinated children) is linked to elevated cancer risks.

There are many other tradeoffs of measles vaccination that remain largely unexplored, including the important role of fever-inducing infectious childhood diseases in reducing subsequent cancer risks. Ironically, while acute childhood infections such as measles protect against cancer, the rise of chronic childhood illnesses (disproportionately observed in vaccinated children) is linked to elevated cancer risks. These tradeoffs—along with the dangerous loss of infant access to protective maternal antibodies and the higher rates of measles illness and complications in older teens and adults—suggest that measles vaccination deserves renewed scrutiny.

10 Things That Happen To Your Body When You Walk Everyday

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    There are multiple health benefits to be gained by taking a simple walk every day. These benefits are measurable, and if you don't already have an active lifestyle it can be a great way to assist you with your health.

  • Reflect On:

    Reflect on how the human race has become extremely sedentary, and how disease rates continue to climb as a result of the modern human lifestyle.

The human experience has become extremely sedentary, the average human lifestyle in the western world has been linked to multiple diseases and is one of the main causes of why disease rates continue to climb, among many other factors that surround all aspects of human life, like big food, for example. With technology in place and jobs that require tremendous amounts of sitting, there is no doubt that it’s having a detrimental effect on our lives.

That being said, the world is clearly becoming way more health conscious. It’s like we needed this experience of unhealthy food, the corporate take-over of everything, and our motionless lifestyle to knock us out of it. We are seeing a health revolution take place, where more and more people are becoming health conscious, and are always being encouraged to be more active.

Ultimately, we can’t really blame the human experience for our lack of movement, it’s something that all of us have the time to incorporate into our lives in one way or another, and if you’re someone who doesn’t enjoy being too active, a simple walk every day can have tremendous amounts of benefits. As pointed out in the video below, by Bright Side.

If You Want To Increase The Benefits Even More, Walk Barefoot

It’s called grounding, or ‘earthing’ and it involves placing your feet directly on the ground, without shoes or socks as a barrier. Why? Because there is an intense negative charge carried by the Earth, it’s electron-rich, which serves as a good supply of antioxidants and free radical destroying electrons.

A study published in the Journal of Environmental and Public Health titled “Earthing: Health Implications of Reconnecting the Human Body to the Earth’s Surface Electrons” postulates that earthing could represent a potential treatment for a variety of chronic degenerative diseases.

That’s right, many positive health benefits occur as a result of walking barefoot, and these are measurable.
