This mind-blowing episode is on the effect that our daily environmental exposure to toxins has on our health. The amount of chemicals we are exposed to everyday has drastically increased; up to 74 billion pounds of chemicals are being imported or produced every day in the US alone. Chemical use is being increased at a rate of 3% per year and it is estimated that this figure will be doubled by 2024…!
Of the 100.000 chemicals introduced since the 1940s only 5% of these has had their safety tested. Once introduced ‘successfully’ they no longer need their safety checked. Industry is not expected to prove these chemicals safe – it is only if proven detrimental that they are looked into! All US citizens now have at least 108 different chemicals and heavy metals in their body.
The toxins and heavy metals in our food, beauty products, cleaning products and general environment disrupt the communication of cells in our body – misaligned messaging between the wrong cells and organs takes place and the body starts attacking itself in self defense as a result. We not only need to detox our bodies of chemicals but remove them from our environment altogether. Some of these chemicals bind directly to human tissue representing the first stage in auto-immune diseases and cancer.
Our food is toxic. Supermarket chicken, even organic chicken is bathed in chlorine…! The mineral depleted soil our food grows in makes us vulnerable to the toxicity. The dyes used to colour the sheets we sleep in and the flame retardants they are loaded with have hormone distruptors. Hormone distruptors alter the function of hormone pathways in your body. Instigating autoimmune diseases. Here is Please watch this documentary:
Episode 5 of this important free Betrayal series:
Free online today!!!! Check it out!!!
Episode 1 is a general introduction but episodes are being uploaded and removed daily. Today’s is on gut health PLEASE watch it, you may know lots already but I feel this is a great resource to summarize the important bits. Episode 2 (today’s) is about how digestive issues are a warning sign for auto-immune disease. If you suffer from digestive issues this is for you:
Recently I have noticed that when I do not eat e.g. by waiting a while before eating breakfast in the morning, or through intermittent fasting: finishing dinner at 5 or 6 and then waiting a few hours in the morning before breakfast; I have no or much less MS symptoms. This has been a sum-what problematic discovery for me, as I consider myself to be under weight and am trying to gain not lose weight.
Terry Wahls, in her book has led me to a possible explanation for why fasting feels so good by introducing me to the notion of nutritional ketosis; the acceleration of the production of ketones through the reduction of dietary carbohydrates.
Ketone bodies are a by-product of burning fat. They are small molecules containing energy produced by the liver using fatty acids during periods of low food intake such as fasting or when on low carbohydrate diets. Ketones cross the blood-brain barrier where the brain cells’ mitrochondria can then burn them as fuel. The longer you are in nutritional ketosis, the more enzymes the body will make for burning ketones; the easier it is for it to use them.
Nutritional Ketosis is a mechanism the body has always used to heal and survive at times when food is less available, for our ancestors; this was during winter. During this time the body begins to burn fats instead of carbohydrates. Because modern diets are loaded with carbohydrates, our bodies burn sugar for fuel instead of fats. The latter is easier but not more beneficial. Glycolysis* takes place through fermentation, in the cell cytoplasm, outside of the mitochondria. Sugary, starchy diets cause inflammation. Burning fat is better for the brain and means our bodies go into the more efficient form of energy production that occurs when we go into ketosis*.
*Glycolysis: spliting of the sugar molecule
*Ketosis: the metabolic state in which the production of ketones is increased
Here is a brilliant video of Mark Mattson’s simple explanation of how neurons grow and synapses are strengthened during intermittent fasting – how it can help reduce inflammation and improve the ability of nerve cells to repair DNA:
Here is another good albeit quite long video on Nutritional ketosis:
Every year it’s the same. It’s getting boring now. You do too much – just one more thing – just one more and then I’ll rest – just this and then day off – and, before you know it, you can’t do anything anymore, for the next two or even three months. Sound familiar? You go to a wedding, to your boyfriend’s gig, to a baby shower. You’re doing loads, you feel like you again. Nothing crazy, no out-til-6am like the good old days; but maybe until midnight (woohooo) twice in a row (uh-oh). Two places to go in a day – MS Action (home for lunch) then to my sister’s house. Exhausting. Seriously. That’s how it is. I’m feeling tired just thinking about it, (right n0w it’s 8.30 and I’m ready for bed, teeth are clean and at 9 I will be in bed, I assure you. (I will probably finish this post tomorrow.)
As I was saying, you go to a wedding, do the shopping, work on your project. Go to a funeral. For me, grief is definitely the straw that breaks the camel’s back (fav expression of a friend I used to have). How can I describe it? Sadness is heavy. It is a load everyone struggles with. It is something you let yourself give into, in the moment, you stay in it a while longer than your body is telling you you can.
I have been thinking about this relapse problem. I need to learn my lesson, and slow down – especially in winter, when my body is weaker. I need to break the chain, and I am determined not to relapse next year. I will lay low and sit this one out as I must, but next winter I will take it easy until the weather gets warmer, and hopefully, I won’t relapse.
Inicié este blog porque tenía miedo cuando me diagnosticaron de esclerosis múltiple (EM) pero hoy me doy cuenta que tal vez es la mejor cosa que me haya pasado. Quiero que otros con EM se den cuenta de esto también. Pretendo facilitar herramientas hacia un tratamiento alternativo dirigido especialmente a personas quienes prefieren el uso de medicamentos alópatas (drogas convencionales) y a su vez la vida diaria no les permite diferentes opciones. Las alternativas disponibles a las que me refiero en este blog han sido comprobadas y funcionan interrumpiendo y además contrarrestando el desarrollo de la EM.
Creo que el cuerpo tiene la capacidad de curarse a si mismo si le brindas las herramientas necesarias para hacerlo. El tratamiento que he descubierto y presento aquí involucra una dieta estricta, ejercicio, terapias alternativas, descanso y una renovada manera de pensar; que mejorará su vida en todos los aspectos, así como ha mejorado la mía. Como he mencionado anteriormente, la EM es la mejor cosa que me ha pasado, provocó en mi vida un gran cambio positivo. Ya no sufro depresiones, problemas estomacales, y el estrés de la vida diaria ha desaparecido. Nuca he vivido tan feliz como lo estoy ahora y ojala que a todos los que viven con EM se puedan igual. La información de este blog beneficiara a cualquier persona con EM pero sobre todo a los recién diagnosticados y a los que aún no estén tan afectados por esta enfermedad. Mientras más pronto adaptes tu vida, más éxito tendrás en el mejoramiento de tu salud. La información que aquí encontrarás proviene de diversas fuentes incluyendo libros, personas con EM y el internet. Siempre me aseguro de poner información ya comprobada. También hallaras una bibliografía en la pagina ‘lectura’. Solo les pido paciencia con la traducción de este blog.
