It’s a Wonderful Life

One of my favorite movies that appears every year in December is even more interesting after reading what the Frank Capra had to say about it.

It’s a Wonderful Life wasn’t made for the oh-so-bored critics, or the oh-so-jaded literati. It was my kind of film for my kind of people…

A film to tell the weary, the disheartened, and the disillusioned; the wino, the junkie, the prostitute; those behind prison walls and those behind the Iron Curtains, that no man is a failure.

To show those born slow of foot or slow of mind, those oldest sisters condemned to spinsterhood, and those oldest sons condemned to unschooled toil, that each man’s life touches so many other lives. And that if he isn’t around it would leave an awful hole.

A film that said to the downtrodden, the pushed-around, the pauper, “Heads up, fella. No man is poor who has one friend. Three friends and you are filthy rich.”

A film that expressed its love for the homeless and the loveless; for her whose cross is heavy and him who touch is ashes; for the Magdalenes stoned by hypocrites and the afflicted Lazaruses with only dogs to lick their sores.

I wanted to shout the abandoned grandfathers staring vacantly in nursing homes, to the always-interviewed but seldom-adopted half-breed orphans, to the paupers who refuse to die while medical vultures wait to snatch their hearts and livers, and to those who take cobalt treatments and whistle – I wanted to shout, “You are the salt of the earth. And It’s a Wonderful Life is my memorial to you!”

Cinnamon and honey

I was told by a doctor a few years back that honey was good for the immune system. He wanted me to use the honey with honeycomb in the jar.

Cinnamon and Honey Whoever thought?

Honey is the only food on the planet that will not spoil or rot. What it will do is what some call ‘turning to sugar’. In reality, honey is always honey. However, when left in a cool dark place for a long time it will “crystallize”. When this happens loosen the lid, boil some water and sit the honey container in the hot water, but turn off the heat and let it liquefy naturally. It is then as good as it ever was. Never boil honey or put it in a microwave. This will kill the enzymes in the honey.

Cinnamon and Honey
Bet the drug companies won’t like this one getting around. Facts on Honey and Cinnamon:

It is found that a mixture of honey and Cinnamon cures most diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also accept honey as a ‘Ram Ban’ (very effective) medicine for all kinds of diseases. Honey can be used without side effects for any kind of diseases.

Today’s science says that even though honey is sweet, when it is taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm even diabetic patients. (I mix & consume 1 tablespoon of raw unpasteurized honey and 1 tablespoon of powdered cinnamon X3 per day to keep my diabetes type hemoglobin A1C numbers down- works for me  Larry S.)  Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada, in its issue dated 17 January,1995 has given the following list of diseases that can be cured by honey and cinnamon, as researched by western scientists:

HEART DISEASES:

Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply it on bread instead of jelly and jam and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack. Also, those who have already had an attack, when they do this process daily, they are kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as one ages the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and the veins.

ARTHRITIS:

Arthritis patients may take daily (morning and night) one cup of hot water with two tablespoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. When taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week (out of the 200 people so treated) practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain — and within a month, most all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis now started walking without pain.

BLADDER INFECTIONS:

Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder..

CHOLESTEROL:

Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water given to a cholesterol patient was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, when taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol is cured. According to information received in the said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.

COLDS:
Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and, clear the sinuses.

UPSET STOMACH:

Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears stomach ulcers from its root.

GAS:
According to the studies done in India and Japan, it is revealed that when Honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.

IMMUNE SYSTEM:

Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacterial and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of Honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles (where DNA is contained) to fight bacterial and viral diseases.

INDIGESTION:

Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food is eaten relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.

INFLUENZA:

A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural ‘Ingredient’ which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.

LONGEVITY:

Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Use four teaspoons of honey, one teaspoon of cinnamon powder, and three cups of water and boil to make a tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Life spans increase and even a 100 year old will start performing the chores of a 20-year-old..

RASPY OR SORE THROAT:

When throat has a tickle or is raspy, take one tablespoon of honey and sip until gone. Repeat every three hours until throat is without symptoms.

PIMPLES:

Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste. Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it off the next morning with warm water. When done daily for two weeks, it removes all pimples from the root.

SKIN INFECTIONS:

Applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin infections.

WEIGHT LOSS:

Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast and on an empty stomach, and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup of water. When taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.

CANCER:

Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder three times a day for one month .

FATIGUE:

Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts are more alert and flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, even when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, when taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M., the vitality of the body increases within a week.

BAD BREATH:

People of South America, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water first thing in the morning so their breath stays fresh throughout the day.

HEARING LOSS:

Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal parts restores hearing. Remember when we were kids? We had toast with real butter and cinnamon sprinkled on it!

Carrots, Eggs and Coffee

You will never look at a cup of coffee the same way again, whether you drink coffee or not.

A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose.

Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil. In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed ground coffee beans. She let them sit and boil; without saying a word.

In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl.. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl.

Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl. Turning to her daughter, she asked, “Tell me what you see.”

“Carrots, eggs, and coffee,” she replied.

Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg.

Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee. The daughter smiled, as she tasted its rich aroma the daughter then asked,  “What does it mean, Mother?”

Her mother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity: boiling water. Each reacted differently. The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting. However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its insides became hardened. The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water.

“Which are you?” she asked her daughter. “When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?

Think of this: Which am I?   Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength?

Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff? Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart?

Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavor. If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you. When the hour is the darkest and trials are their greatest, do you elevate yourself to another level? How do you handle adversity?  Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human and enough hope to make you happy.

The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; you can’t go forward in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.

When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so at the end, you’re the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.

May we all be COFFEE!!!!!!!!

What you Believe is What you Get…Always and All Ways.

A number of times each week someone responds saying something like, I’ll believe it when I see it.

Trouble is they will never see it, whatever it is, because until you believe you cannot see. Belief controls everything.  Most of what passes for science is marketing and justification for a belief system.  Pick any hot button issue and every side offers ‘scientific data’ supporting their beliefs.  Often opposite sides use the same data to support their belief based on their interpretation of the data.  Regarding health and wellness there are a number of belief systems in place.  Are they all true or are they all false… except yours of course.

Many have a ‘formula’ approach.   The back of packaged products now have a list of ingredients in order of largest component to smallest.  There is often a list of nutritional data too with a list of substances and the amount associated with each.  These are all part of a ‘formula’ associated with what you need to be healthy.   Always looking to be sure you have enough, the right proportions and being aware of the latest ingredient that is absolutely necessary to live a happy and healthy life.   A great deal of time is spent organizing the record keeping, at least mentally; to be sure, you have all the needed parts to the formula for perfect health.  Many health food stores use this approach.   Some people believe that vitamins, minerals, shakes and other packaged products are food.  It is a myth.  You may be able to eat it but it isn’t food.

Another common system is the deficiency approach.   This approach is like having a database of basic elements you must monitor and every time an ingredient falls to zero or a critical set point that ingredient must be returned to the normal range.  Ever had blood test done?  You are in the ‘range’ or you are not.   Many nutritional minimum daily requirements are based on this kind of approach.    When some aspect of your body ‘acts’ up you decide you need more iron, extra fiber,  more zinc and the list goes on.   Many advertisements offer the ‘If you have the following issues…. Then you need product ABC.’   You need to talk to your doctor or some other professional who knows all the answers before you proceed.  Depending upon who you ask the ‘formula’ to solve your deficiency may change.  You are required to learn an encyclopedia of information or put yourself into the hands of an expert you trust.   When you are selling hammers, everyone has a nail problem.

Whatever your approach it tends to be the one you use on everything.  If isn’t broke don’t fix it, right?

There are dozens of offshoots to these approaches in the health industry.  Vegetarian belief systems, liquid protein, Atkins, hundreds of weight loss schemes, organic food programs and thousands of books on every permutation imaginable and they all have one thing in common…they are all the one only true answer to everyone’s health needs.

For many people they just might be!  I think something is missing however from the vast majority.  Theory to practice is where to look.  What system are you using? Are you positive it is the answer for everyone you know?

Is What You Eat Killing You?

Near thirty years ago, I learned about food rejectivity.   The last thirty years has seen food allergies grow dramatically.  Everyone inside the USA needs to hear this.

Now take the time to read this blog post on unapproved drugs![Literally the FOOD you are eating!]

The situation is not going to change soon or quickly.  While the number of people who experience serious symptoms is still a small percentage, most people are either oblivious or able to tolerate the situation. What you can do in the face of this is what I learned how to do twenty – six years ago.  There is a way to discover what foods your body rejects.  You do not have to wait for it to be an allergy.  My next post will explain how.

Don’t Believe or Disbelieve, Be Aware

My point of view is not something to believe or disbelieve.  It is a way to take control back, a way to be in control when the conventional approach has no more options.   The truth believed is a lie; the same thing experienced is the truth. Maybe?! When I was studying sales, I heard a story.  We tend to do what is reasonable even when it doesn’t make any difference.   Walking down the street on the way home a man finds his next-door neighbor on his hands and knees in the yard.  Asking what he is doing, his neighbor says he is looking for his house keys.  Being a friendly neighbor, he begins to help look for the keys with him.  At some point he asks, “Where did you see your keys last?”

His neighbor says, “In my bedroom.”

“Then why are we looking out here?” he replies.

“There is more light out here.”

If you keep looking where it is easy, where everyone else is looking, where you were told to look and what you are looking for is not there, you will be looking there forever.

If you assume nature is wise, your body will naturally heal itself.  You may have to change what you are doing however!

My health and nutrition investigation discovered three different viewpoints.

Conventional [western] medicine acknowledges nutrition exists but not much more. Drugs suppress the immune system response that might fix or adjust any malfunction.  All human bodies are considered the same and virtually interchangeable.  Nutrition has a minimal effect and you the patient is a passive follower of instructions by your doctor.

Many nutritional programs today look at the nutritional imbalances and prescribe a formula to manipulate the body and fix the disease.  They seldom discuss immune response and any problems if your body is deficient in one or more nutritional substances.   All bodies are viewed the same and we only have to figure out what you need to do to be a good little patient and do what the person in authority says.  Is there any real difference in these first two?

The view that caught my attention twenty odd years ago is to look at all the components that support MY body regulating itself.  Any imbalance in my unique body affects all the other areas of regulation.  How my body tolerates the food I eat affects all the self-regulating systems.   Disease is the regulation systems out of balance and distorted by nutritional choices, stress and my attitudes. Once I learned how my body reacts, I discovered how to restore balance and the self-regulating features of my body do the rest.  YES!!!! You are in charge.

The Five Essential Factors for Your Health

Disease is complex.  Achieving health is simple.  Simple is seldom easy.   I believe the body is the perfect machine and when given what it needs it will automatically operate in its own best interest.   The body works for health by design providing you do your part.

The first essential factor is you must believe that.  Waiting for a magic bullet to solve your health issue leads to hopelessness and inaction.  Anyone saying, “You have to learn to live with it” Is NOT acceptable.  Take your focus off the illness and refocus on wellness puts you in the driver’s seat.    The prevalent view of something outside of us is responsible puts you at the effect of the unknown and an all-knowing system.  You are not helpless and there is always something to do to return your system back to health and balance.

The second factor is increasing your body’s oxygen supply.  Exercise is the easiest and quickest method.  A brisk walk daily, taking the flight of stairs instead of the elevator a couple times a day or any number of small acts to break out of the usual sedentary life we create in front of the boob tube.  A product I use enables red blood cells to carry two oxygen molecules instead of one.  Doubles the oxygen my body has with every breath!

Factor three is stopping unresolved stress you allow added to the day.  You compromise your body’s ability to maintain equilibrium and balance each day it continues.   For many people simply recognizing what is happening is all they have to do to let it go.  Adding a daily walk gives time for this factor to take place too.  Two factors improve with a daily walk.

Food and feeding your body the proper nutritious diet it deserves is the fourth factor.  There are plenty of studies suggesting a multi-vitamin is not an answer.  Given the cost is might add to factor three instead of subtract.   You will have to do some work and part of it is refraining from an easy answer.  The trouble is a vast majority of information comes from a one size fits all belief system and that is not true.   Designing your nutritional program is not difficult once you know where to begin.

The fifth factor is seldom considered.  If you are in distress, diseased or not at optimum health now, you are likely eating foods you shouldn’t and not eating foods you should. I do not mean the chips, Twinkies and beer either.  Most of what you consider healthy may in fact be a major part of the problem.  Again, the one size fits all, ‘we are all the same’ mantra has you buy into fads, myth and nonsensical health solutions from well meaning but brainwashed and uninformed so called experts.  They are experts about the same identical human body we supposedly all inhabit. Fact is all of us are different and unique.

I rid myself of a chronic illness. I was able to stop taking all prescription medications and I have lived free of the disease ever since.  The method works for anyone willing to take his or her life back. Each of the five factors is open to your full participation. It is about self-discovery and less about what I or anyone else did or does. The answers are out there!  Your body knows.  Learn to listen to it.

Discovering Food Rejectivity – Step One

Whatever you are eating, regardless if you believe it is healthy, your body may reject it for many reasons.  How would you know?  There are no accidents. Disease does not occur randomly.  Paying attention to our body’s language is not part of any conversation I heard growing up or in school.  You cannot take care of something you pay no attention to, are unaware of, or notice its response to what you do.  If you believe that nutritious food can’t hurt you, guess again.

What we have been exposed to the last forty odd years is salt is bad, sugar is bad, carbohydrates are bad, cholesterol is bad, calories are bad and fat is bad.  Anything anyone did before the 20th century, before cancer, heart disease were common is bad!  Raw milk is horrible! Actually dairy products are all bad and red meat as well.   Rabbit food, soy-burgers, tofu, margarine, corn oil, canola, fake eggs and everything LOWFAT is supposed to be good for you!

Well, I cannot speak for anyone else but I discovered my body hates all the so-called good stuff and loves most of the so-called bad stuff.  Before looking at what to do to identify foods your body doesn’t like there is more information to digest first.

Advertising, our peers and customs influence our eating habits.  There are 1000’s of foods available, natural and grown in the world.  Most of eat how many? Ten?… twenty… not many eat thirty different natural foods in a month!  We are prone to habits.   Advertising promotes ‘fast foods’ while celery sticks, carrot sticks, broccoli, cauliflower, cherry tomatoes and a dozen others if you wander through the produce section of your local grocer with an open mind are much quicker to prepare and easier on your body.  Some people’s body rejects some of these vegetables too.

Our never slow down lifestyles affects how our bodies digest food.  Easier digestion and better assimilation occurs in a relaxed, at ease body.  How we feel about the people we are with, how we feel about our work, our day, how we feel about ourselves affects how we digest the food.  What we think of the food we are eating and the speed we eat it affects the body’s interaction with the food we are eating.  Taking some time to relax first, taking a moment to be thankful for the people and the food increases our body’s ability to assimilate what we eat.

The first step is starting an ongoing inventory.  For the next week, write down what you put into your mouth.  Don’t restrict yourself in any way.  Just keep track of what and when you eat.  The intention is to notice what kind of variety you eat, how much is processed fake food and to begin paying attention to what you eat.  For many people paying attention is a new experience.  Once you begin paying attention the insights begin to go off like heating popcorn.

If you live in the greater Los Angeles area, visit Dr Jeremy E. Kaslow’s site www.drkaslow.com The site is filled with different ideas on eating and diet. There is no one size fits all.

If you are looking for detailed information on the mind body connection, NightengaleConent has information to please you for just $1.  Imagine eating what you want, exercising how you want and drinking water that supports you.  Most of what people believe is myth!

Are You a Food Addict Overfed and Starving to Death?

{EAV:c86d1d5a4939cbb1}

A long time ago now, I was on a very ‘healthy’ diet that did not include any animal protein and numerous food combinations to insure I was getting all the essential nutrients from my diet.  I was not taking any vitamins nor medications.   I was miserable, getting sicker by the day and I was told I was just detoxifying my body.   They had to know what they were talking about because they even wrote a book about the diet and it had ‘scientific’ backing.   I eventually got sick enough that I went to see a doctor who diagnosed me with a terminal illness.  Someone close to me gave me a book on food rejection, food allergies and eating in a way that my body responded to positively.

When we get upset, we tend to find fault with people around us or with ourselves but never consider that the food may have anything to do with it.  Being well trained in aggravation, agitation and annoyance it never occurred to me that the food I was eating might be part of the regimen.   Calculating, controlled and confrontational is just part of your nature!  NOT!! It may be the foods you are eating.

Eating many small meals a day is not a diet for humans.  The appendix has lost its function and eating fewer meals is how the body works best.  Most people, including me, have eaten until we are stuffed and yet still ‘feel’ hungry!  That is addiction!  If you are overweight, you are eating recreationally or out of a toxic addicted fog.  Hunger is not a ‘feeling’ in your stomach or a command from a little voice inside your head screaming ‘feed me!’   If you only eat when truly hungry, you will never be overweight.  The actual hunger experience occurs in your mouth, throat and neck.   When it occurs, you are ready for the pleasure of eating.   I thought that was bogus bunk when I first read it too.

How do you identify what your food addiction is?  The method I used began by drinking distilled water for 48 hours.  Some people actually believe that distilled water is bad for you.  If you have ever been on a cruise ship or lived aboard a US Navy vessel all you drink at sea is distilled water.  Once you try it, you may have trouble going back to the toxic slew coming out of your tap or buying expensive river water in a bottle.   The first time I drank distilled water for two days and nothing else it was the longest two days of my life.  That little voice [the one that just asked you what little voice?] was really upset and the morning of the second day my stomach was talking loudly as well.  Before the end of two days, I was feeling better than I had felt in months!

I had flushed my system of all the ‘healthy’ food I was eating and my body was finally getting a rest.   Before I began, I took a food inventory of all the foods I was eating.  One or more was the problem I was told.  I later discovered the foods I was rejecting matched the very foods on the “blood type” diet list I am supposed to avoid and eliminate.    You pick twelve foods to eat over your first three days after your pure water fast.  Four meals a day of a single food and if you pick twelve that the blood type diet recommends you eat you will be less likely to trigger a negative food response.  The blood type diet is not perfect either.  There are foods I eat without distress it claims I should avoid and there are foods I no longer eat that my blood type is supposed to allow me to eat.  The number is small in both categories and what I discovered doing the random trial method are most of the suggestions regarding foods to eliminate is highly accurate.  The ‘why’ is of no interest to me.    I am interested in being cool, calm and collected.  From that position, operating with certainty, conviction and contribution is a natural expression of being.

During the three days, you eat only four foods each day using only butter or water for cooking and sea salt if you like for seasoning.  You consume no other spices, medications, vitamins, packaged foods and especially nothing with sugar during the single food days.  Nothing but distilled water is what to drink.

The twelve foods I selected from a list were day one; eggs, zucchini, lettuce and sweet potatoes, day two; tofu, peanuts, chicken and potatoes, and day three; steak, celery, carrots and broccoli.

The goal is to maintain balance, homeostasis, harmony, resonance, congruence or your natural alignment.  All of those words point to a place food should leave you.  Any sign of distress, gas, emotional swings in either direction, issues with your body or body parts in the moments and first couple of hours after eating have one likely cause.  The single food you just ate!  The list of ‘things’ to look at is long but essentially if you feel great and ‘normal’ before eating and afterwards not so much that is a food to remove for now at least from your diet.

I selected the twelve foods because I liked all of them.  Had I known about blood type food restrictions Day 2 would have been a different list.  Day one was awesome. Perhaps because I was REALLY Hungry but the four foods left me feeling just as good after eating them as I had before.  I was looking forward to day two!

Day 2 was a bad day.  I later discovered my Mother is severely allergic to soy.  I have a similar body reaction and the tofu was nearly an instant negative whole body reaction.  I was in distress for hours after the first bite.  So this is what healthy food does to me!?  Peanuts triggered an ‘I cannot get enough to eat’ response and a sense of angst and upset that hung on the rest of the day.  I blamed the reaction I had on the first two as the cause for my upset with chicken and potatoes but testing since suggests those are two foods my body does not tolerate as well.  Day 3 was a carbon copy of day one!  The next two days I combined the foods that agreed with me, first two at time and then three to look for reactions.   Then I did another three days of four single foods a day.  Combination for two days and on until you run out of foods to test.   Once you discover balance, experience resonance it only takes a couple bites to know it is not something you should eat.

Here’s where I tell you how to find the complete details!!  I cannot.  You will have to do some research on your own.  Do a search at Amazon and your favorite search engine for food rejectivity, food elimination, and blood type diet.  Those are great places to begin.  I wish there was a specific formula to follow, an exact path everyone could take.  The good news is you are unique and you will have to find out which foods you should eliminate on your own. The standard talk with your doctor or health care practitioner applies.  I didn’t but you may need permission to do this. The system has taught you well if you do.

If you would like to discuss this in any way, please contact me and leave your comments below.

Heaven Belongs to Childlike…

Heaven is where children are…

A child has no dissimulation, no concealment. As soon as he is capable of deceit he is no longer a child.  In like manner, nothing can equal the openness and candor of the spiritual child.  He does not compose his exterior; his recollection has nothing constrained about it; his actions, his conversations, his manners, everything in him is simple and natural; when he says anything he really thinks it;  when he offers anything, he wishes to give it; when he promises anything, he will keep his promise. He does not seek to appear different to what he really is, nor to hide his faults; he says what is good and what is evil of himself with the same simplicity, and he has no reserve whatever with those to whom he ought to disclose the state of his soul.

A child shows his love with artless innocence: everything in him expresses the feelings of his heart, and he is all the more touching and persuasive because there is nothing studied about him.  It is the same with the spiritual child, when he wishes to show his love for God and his charity for his neighbor.  He goes to God simply, without preparation; he says to God without set formulas or choice of words all that his loving heart suggests to him; he knows no other method of prayer than to keep himself in the presence of God, to look at God, to listen to Him, to possess Him, to tell Him all the feelings with which grace inspires him, sometimes in words, but more often without speaking at all.

Father Jean-Nicolas Grou, a French Jesuit spiritual master
