Medical Medium: What Your Brain Really Wants When You Crave Dairy, Caffeine & Junk

Our cravings for all things sweet stem from the organs needing one thing.

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    When we are craving things like caffeine in the morning our body is really asking for bioavailable glucose or fruit. Fruit is the most natural food a human can eat.

  • Reflect On:

    How often do you use caffeine in the morning to wake you up? Why not try smoothies for a week instead and see what happens?

Last year I stumbled upon the work of a man known as the ‘Medical Medium,’ and my life changed.

His name is Anthony William, and his information about food and chronic disease is taking the globe by storm.

But there is something unique about Anthony.

He isn’t your average health guru—the one with washboard abs and a Chiclet smile that promises you the moon. He doesn’t have an academic background, and he doesn’t source his information from scientific studies.

If you’re already thinking it’s time to stop reading, have patience, because there is a twist to William’s story that might spark your interest, and if you’re suffering from any disease, disorder, or any uncomfortable mystery symptom that conventional medicine hasn’t been able to help you with, it’s highly likely the Medical Medium will have your answer.

Anthony’s story

Anthony William, the ‘Medical Medium’.

During a family dinner when Anthony was four years old, he heard a voice that identified itself as, “the spirit of the most high.” The spirit told Anthony to announce to the family that his grandmother had lung cancer. In his book, Life Changing Foods, Anthony explains that he didn’t even know what the term ‘cancer’ meant. But with enough coaxing, he relayed the news to his grandmother, and medical testing soon confirmed what he had been told was true.

Thus began his journey of what was to become a lifelong gift. But as Anthony explains, in his early years he never saw it as a gift. He writes in his book that he wanted to be a kid like all of his friends, yet no matter where he turned, spirit would not let up. The spirit Anthony communicated with was always in his ear, filling him in on the health status of everyone around him.

He had to learn how to do visual scans of people, he says, like supercharged MRI scans that reveal blockages, infections, trouble areas, past problems, and even soul fractures. This, Anthony explains, means he always zeros in on suffering.

When eventually he accepted his duty, he came to the stark realization that suffering was far more rampant than what we even see on the news. “There is a hidden epidemic of people dealing with extreme fatigue, brain fog, pain, dizziness, and more, and they don’t know why,” he writes in Life Changing Foods. 

“There are also people who get dire diagnoses and lose all hope in life. Far too often, those who are ill go on suffering for years without answers…my job is to tell the truth, to give people the answers medical science hasn’t discovered yet.”

As he explains, his books don’t contain “citations or mentions of scientific studies.” All of his information is relayed directly from a higher source of knowledge, a source of the purest compassion for human suffering.

Medical science is missing the answers we seek

Modern medicine is failing hundreds of millions of people by labeling their suffering as a ‘mystery illness’. Does the Medical Medium have the answers we are seeking?

Anthony isn’t the first to say that modern medicine is in shambles.

“What happens if you type, ‘what causes Alzheimer’s disease?’ into the web?” he says. “You’ll get a virtual smorgasbord of hits. Some sites will say it’s unknown, others will list possible causes and risk factors, and a few will offer management tools. None will redirect you to the right results for alternate questions like, ‘why are we losing our loved ones to this ruthless disease?'”

William states that he means no disrespect to science or the countless healthcare professionals who fight every day for their patients. “I have nothing but deep admiration of the practice of medicine and other healing arts. I’m all for science. Spirit simply wants me to make you aware that something’s missing in what science has discovered so far.”

He says that the 200 million people in America who are sick with mystery symptoms are evidence of this.

“The mother who is in bed without any answers, too fatigued to look after her children, and at her wit’s end wondering how to get better…ask her if medical science has come up with all the answers yet.”

And the truth is, he says, that on top of the stress and nonstop pace of life today, we’re up against a pernicious set of pollutants and pathogens that he calls the ‘Unforgiving Four’. And those are: radiation, toxic heavy metals, viruses, and DDT. 

William says that Spirit is our security team, and it is his responsibility to share the advanced information that will help us safeguard ourselves, our children, and our children’s children.

“These are lessons of a new era, secrets that should never have been secrets. It’s time to tap into the wisdom that should have been yours all along.”

Food is the new frontier

Anthony William’s book, ‘Life Changing Foods,’ is a simple yet powerful resource for healing chronic illness and learning the incredible power of fruits, vegetables, spices and herbs, and wild foods.

Anthony states that even though we are constantly bombarded with the toxic Unforgiving Four pollutants on the daily, there is an antidote right before our eyes. He calls them the ‘holy four food groups’. They are: Fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices, and wild foods.

He says these four food groups are the sacred assistance granted to us to make it through life here. “These are the answers for humanity. These are what will save us.”

The answer is that simple.

Bringing more fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices, and wild foods into our lives will heal us beyond our wildest imagination. If we want to stave off illness, says William, we must be proactive and embrace the medicinal power of these life-changing foods.

This isn’t to say we can’t eat other foods, he says, but the more of these foods we incorporate into our lives and the less meat and processed foods we eat, the faster we will heal and transform our health in ways we never thought possible.

Interpreting Cravings

Anthony says that our cravings have their own language, and that we have to learn how to interpret them.

“Our minds and bodies have been conditioned by years of advertisements, misinformation, social eating situations, and less-than-healthy snacks and meals. Usually, cravings have much more to do with what’s going on emotionally at a given point in time than what would be beneficial for us to eat.”

Each food in the holy four group has their own physical, emotional, and spiritual benefit to help soothe the underlying cause of our cravings.

What Sugar Cravings Really Mean & The Need For Caffeine

A yearning for sweets is one of the most common cravings. First thing in the morning, during an afternoon slump, or after upsetting news, we often reach for a pastry filled with cream and sugar, a candy bar, or pizza.

In this case, the craving is communicating something specific biologically: your brain wants sugar. We’re trained to think sugar is bad, but natural, unadulterated sugar from whole plant foods is key for brain function.

Our body relies on the brain and liver maintaining proper reserves of glucose. These glucose reserves provide vital functions such as stabilizing blood sugar levels when you go too long between meals and powering the brain through mental processing and emotional upheaval.

With the amount of emotional stress and neurotoxins causing electrical override in the brain, we need two to three times as much sugar than we would normally need.

The bioavailable glucose and fructose in the holy four foods is the top fuel to help you meet the challenges of the day. These natural sugars should not be feared. They are a travel band of potent phytochemicals that help fight and flush out the Unforgiving Four, he writes in his book.

William states that even our cravings for dairy are sugar cravings; the sugar content in dairy, called lactose, is very high. But dairy is also ridden with fat, and the combination of sugar and fat can ruin our insulin-regulating bodily mechanisms.

“True brain foods like dates, figs, melons, grapes, citrus, raw honey, and smoothies with coconut water will give your body what it’s really asking for when you crave sugar.”

We associate caffeine in the morning with a boost of energy to wake us up and get us on with our day. But what our brain really craves is bioavailable glucose. If you rely on caffeine regularly, Anthony says that replacing it with fresh, juicy fruits will give you exactly what you need to wake up your brain.

Cravings During Detoxing

As we add more produce to our diet, our body begins to rid itself of the pathogens, heavy metals, viral by-products, radiation, and chemicals we’ve accumulated over the years.

Eating more of these foods and less processed foods could trigger very valid feelings of loss as we distance ourselves from unhealthy food choices that glimmer with nostalgia, says William. Going for a gooey date instead of that pizza will reward us in the long term, but not because we need to prove ourself morally.

It’s because when feel a very specific craving for a food we know doesn’t serve us, our cells are releasing old toxins from that very food we once ate. As the toxins release, it can feel like a bubble bursting in our consciousness, releasing any emotions that we were using the food to stuff down when we ate it.

An intense craving during detoxing means our body is finally getting a chance to rid itself of all that old gunk. The last thing we want to do is interrupt that process. If we can find a way to ride the waves of detox cravings, we will find ourselves a renewed person afterwards.

If we give into the craving, we are cutting ourselves off from healing and enlightenment. The emotional, spiritual, and physical aspects of your being are infinitely interconnected, William reminds us.

Rising up from the cravings

Anthony William’s simple whole-food protocol is changing lives around the world.

Planning meals ahead of time, being stocked up on fruits, vegetables and herbs, and keeping healthy snacks with you at all times will be your saving grace moving forward.

As cravings arise, it’s important to ask ourselves, ‘what’s it really saying?’ If there’s an emotional or spiritual need that we can identify, there is a fruit or vegetable that can assist in that specific need. Anthony’s book, Life Changing Foods, is an incredible resource for this, and I would highly recommend having a copy in your home.

It makes for great conversation among friends and family, and it will be the knowledge you use as your protection against the slew of toxins and pollutants we are constantly surrounded by in today’s world. It may even be the very thing that saves a loved one’s life in a time of crisis.

At the very least, Anthony’s information is a reminder of the simplicity of healing, and the hidden powers that fruits and vegetables contain. It re-establishes a relationship with food that for many has been lost or damaged—a relationship that may be the most important piece missing in living a life of health and happiness.

Organic Certification: What the USDA Organic Label Means

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Organic and natural labels mean different things, and various types of labels tells you what percentage of ingredients are actually organic. We'll explore what to look for.

  • Reflect On:

    Do you sometimes buy products thinking they are organic or fully natural based on their wording? Have you later found out that those products aren't natural or organic at all? Read labels more closely at grocery stores to be aware.

Don’t get conned by fraudulent claims of “natural” or “organic.” Learn what to look for, and why it’s important, to ensure you’re getting the quality you are paying for.

The industrial age of the 20th century brought about changing agricultural practices that have generated increasing alarm about the effects of these practices on the environment and health. The use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, antibiotics, hormones, irradiated and genetically altered food and fiber products has created a groundswell of rightful concern. It has led to the growing demand for non-toxic, organic products that many are willing to pay a higher price for to ensure the healthful purity of food and clothing provided for their families.

With such profit opportunities, it’s little wonder that the lucrative organic product market has suffered abuse with so-called “organic” labels being fraudulently placed on products that have not earned the right. As a result of pressure from farming and consumer groups, legislation for the standardization of organic certification was introduced in the 1980s. It has been updated to include more vigorous enforcement and control methods since, with the current standards established in 2002 by the USDA.

The Standards of USDA Organic Certification

Specific standards must be met in order to legally claim a product as USDA certified organic. Organic producers must utilize methods that conserve water, maximize soil health, and reduce air pollution. The specific standards to earn USDA organic certification include:

Free of synthetic chemicals such as insecticides, herbicides, fertilizers, hormones, antibiotics, and additives

Free from irradiation and genetically modified organisms

Agricultural products grown on land that has been free of prohibited substances for a period of three years

Animals used for meat, eggs, milk or other animal products must be exclusively fed foods that are organically grown, may not be given antibiotics or hormones, and must have access to outdoors.

Clean and sanitized harvesting and processing equipment throughout the process from harvest to finished, packaged product

Detailed chain-of-handling records from the field through final sales

Physical separation of certified organic products from non-organic products throughout the process of production

Regular on-site inspections from USDA-approved inspectors to ensure compliance

Understanding the Certified Organic Label

Once the rigorous process of certification has been completed, organic producers may place the USDA certified organic seal on their products. Currently, there are four levels of certified organic products, with a specific definition of the percentage of organic ingredients the final products contains. They are as follows:

• 100% organic: all production methods and ingredients are USDA certified organic.

• Organic: at least 95% of the production methods and ingredients are USDA certified organic with remaining ingredients included on the National List of allowed ingredients.

• Made With Organic Ingredients: at least 70% of the ingredients are USDA certified organic with remaining ingredients included on the National List of allowed ingredients.

• No organic wording or seal: less than 70% of the ingredients are USDA certified organic and no claims may be made on the front or back of the product.

Manufacturers or producers who knowingly label a product “organic” when it does not meet the USDA standards are subject to fines up to $11,000 per violation.

Why Organic Certification is Important

When you see the official USDA organic certification seal on food, clothing, and bedding products, you can be assured that these products have met the meticulous standards required and are free of chemicals, toxins, antibiotics, and hormones. When you see the USDA certified organic label, you will understand the value of the higher priced organic products as compared to non-organically produced products.

With the current stringent organic certification requirements enforced by regular inspections from USDA accredited agents, the USDA certified organic label has great meaning and importance to the consumer. Look for the label to know that you are getting the quality you are paying for.

WHO Finds Global Lack Of Inactivity Rising Especially In Wealthier Countries — What You Can Do

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Inactivity is on the rise and it's the cause of a wide range of health concerns. Our population is only becoming more inactive, not less, and it's time to change that.

  • Reflect On:

    There are many factors of our modern world that make us less active. Our jobs, driving rather than walking/biking, too much screen time. What can you do differently to bring more activity into your life? What story stops you from starting?

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that more than a quarter of the entire population on this planet are not getting enough physical exercise, this number has barely improved since 2001. There are many factors that contribute to this, but just how much damage are we doing by failing to be active?

The lack of physical exercise raises the risk of many health problems, such as heart disease, type-2 diabetes and various types of cancers.

Interestingly, according to their study published in The Lancet Global Health, higher income countries, such as the UK, were among the least active population. Women were also found to be more sedentary throughout the world, excluding two regions in Asia.

The study looked at self-reported data on activity levels from 358 population based surveys covering 168 countries and included 1.9 million people.

The populations of higher income countries, which include the UK and USA showed an increase in the proportion of inactive people and had actually risen from 32% in 2001 to 37% in 2016, in the lower income countries it remained at 16%.

Those who were classified as inactive did less than 150 minutes of moderate exercise and around 75 minutes of intense activity per week.

It was found that women were less active than men overall, except for in South and Central Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and higher-income Western countries. The authors believe that this was caused by a few different factors including extra childcare duties and cultural perspectives that may have made it more difficult for them to exercise.

Why More Inactivity In Wealthier Countries?

According to the researchers, in the wealthier countries, many of the jobs have transitioned to more office or desk jobs, meaning a more sedentary type of lifestyle. On top of that much of the population of these countries drive automobiles or take public transit to and from work which in many cases accounts for a lot of their time.

In the lower income countries, many of the jobs require the people to be more active, are physically demanding and people often have to walk to and from their jobs.

The WHO has had a goal to reduce the global levels of inactivity by 10% by 2025, the authors of the study feel that at the rate we are currently going, this target will be missed.

Lead author of the study, Dr. Regina Guthold said, “Unlike other major global health risks, levels of insufficient physical activity are not falling worldwide, on average, and over a quarter of all adults are not reaching the recommended levels of physical activity for good health.”

Regions with increasing levels of insufficient physical activity are a major concern for public health and the prevention and control of non-communicable diseases.”

Co-author, Dr. Fiona Bull added, “Addressing these inequalities in physical activity levels between men and women will be critical to achieving global activity targets and will require interventions to promote and improve women’s access to opportunities that are safe, affordable and culturally acceptable.”

According to the WHO,

Exercise guidelines for 19- to 64-year-olds

How much?

  • at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity every week
  • strength exercises on two or more days a week that work all the major muscles
  • break up long periods of sitting with light activity

What is moderate aerobic activity?

  • Walking fast, water aerobics, riding a bike on level ground or with a few hills, doubles tennis, pushing a lawn mower, hiking, skateboarding, rollerblading, volleyball, basketball

What counts as vigorous activity?

  • Jogging or running, swimming fast, riding a bike fast or on hills, singles tennis, football, rugby, skipping rope, hockey, aerobics, gymnastics, martial arts

What activities strengthen muscles?

  • lifting weights, working with resistance bands, doing exercises that use your own body weight, such as push-ups and sit-ups, heavy gardening, such as digging and shovelling, yoga

What activities are both aerobic and muscle-strengthening?

  • circuit training, aerobics, running, football, rugby, netball, hockey

Final Thoughts

I was surprised to see that the WHO didn’t touch on inactivity due to too much screen time — watching television, Netflix, Facebook scrolling, messaging, texting, browsing etc. Certainly, the increase in screen time plays a roll with the amount of inactivity, especially in the higher income countries. If you are someone who spends too much time staring at a screen, then it is important to consider the above information. Can you limit your screen time and replace it with something active? Or would you consider jumping rope, or rebounding while watching the television? Our health is our greatest wealth and having awareness about an issue is the first way to create change and take responsibility for our lives.

Could you walk or bike to work instead of drive? What about trying a new sport? Could you commit to adding a few hours each week of physical activity? These small decisions could have a profound impact on your health, longevity and overall well-being.

List Of Products & Brands That Tested Positive For Monsanto’s Glyphosate

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Glyphosate is a carcinogenic chemical that can be found in an alarming number of food products. Traces have even been found in companies that employ the "Organic" label.

  • Reflect On:

    Think about what you buy and consume. By voting with your dollar and opting out of foods that contain this chemical, you are telling Monsanto you don't want it. The power lies in the hands of each and every one of us.

Finally, the corporate giant Monsanto, an organization that has hailed itself as the answer to global food shortages and is “working to help farmers grow food more sustainably” has been outed and is currently facing backlash after a near $300 million lawsuit was settled proving that glyphosate, the active ingredient in the roundup herbicide, causes cancer. The company was found guilty of malice and covering up the fact that their most popular product does indeed cause cancer.

On their website, it still states that “Glyphosate has a 40-year history of safe and effective use. In evaluations spanning those four decades, the overwhelming conclusion of experts worldwide, including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), has been that glyphosate can be used safely.” Seems they are still in denial, despite the lawsuit.

This is great news, however, as this story was too big to be kept from the mainstream. Many are starting to wake up to the fact that Monsanto isn’t as safe of a company as they would like you to believe. Despite years of mounting evidence that glyphosate is carcinogenic, Monsanto has been able to deny the fact, stating that no products contain a high enough level to pose a risk, failing to acknowledge the cumulative effect within the body.

Americans have applied 1.8 million tons of glyphosate since its introduction in 1974. Worldwide, 9.4 million tons of the chemical have been sprayed onto fields. For comparison, that’s equivalent to the weight of water in more than 2,300 Olympic-size swimming pools. It’s also enough to spray nearly half a pound of Roundup on every cultivated acre of land in the world.” ~Newsweek

Which Foods Have Glyphosate?

The issue is, it can be difficult to know exactly which products are genetically modified, and thus are likely to contain Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide or some form of glyphosate. In the past, a safe bet was to be sure to purchase only organic products; however in recent years even certain brands of organic foods have been compromised as glyphosate has been found in some of these as well. Thanks to WakingTimes for providing this list of foods containing glyphosate:

 Final Thoughts

The most effective way to avoid glyphosate in your diet is to eat a whole-food plant-based diet, which means limiting your intake of processed foods as much as possible. Look for the “Non-Gmo Verified Project” stamp to ensure your foods do are not genetically modified and thus should not contain glyphosate. The fact of the matter is, the more informed we are in regards to these chemicals, the more power we have over our own health. It’s up to us to take responsibility for our own lives, our bodies and what we are putting inside. Vote with your dollar and avoid GMO’s whenever possible.
