Crohn’s Disease

Digestive health issues are a huge epidemic in our society and one of the of most alarming digestive diseases is Crohn’s disease. Crohn’s disease is growing at a fast rate and unfortunately, modern medicine does not and will not have the answer or cure. Why are many people suffering from Crohn’s disease?

Crohn’s disease is classified as an Irritable Bowel Disease and it is a chronic inflammatory condition of the gastrointestinal tract. Crohn’s disease is also classified as an autoimmune disorder where the body attacks itself. It mainly occurs in the last part of the small intestine, called the ileum and the beginning of the large colon. However, Crohn’s disease can occur anywhere along the entire gastrointestinal tract, from the mouth to the anus and it can affect the entire thickness of the bowel wall. 

Some of the most common symptoms of Crohn’s disease include the following: persistent diarrhea, rectal bleeding, an urgent need to move bowels, abdominal cramps and pain, a sensation of incomplete evacuation and constipation. Other symptoms can include fever, loss of appetite, weight loss, fatigue, night sweats and a loss of normal menstrual cycles. 

The main cause of Crohn’s disease is a poor diet made possible from our modern society with the large processed food companies, fast food restaurants, agricultural chemical products in the form of pesticides and the ever increasing genetical modified organisms (GMOs) in the food supply. All of these modern applications to our food supply wreck havoc on our entire digestive and immune systems by greatly weakening the body’s ability to generate proper levels of stomach acid (hydrochloric acid), the body’s ability to absorb nutrients within the small intestine and the body’s ability to keep the proper balance of bacteria, mainly in the large intestine, but throughout the entire body. When these functions of the body are weakened or destroyed, disease sets in and one of these diseases is Crohn’s disease. Simply put, Crohn’s disease is the inability of the digestive system to digest, absorb and assimilate the nutrients necessary for a healthy body and mind. This sets the stage for the body to start attacking itself because the body sees the undigested food in the blood steam as a foreign invader. Couple the undigested food with the chemicals from food and body care products and the stage for general war against the body is set. 

The best way to mitigate or cure Crohn’s disease is a complete lifestyle change, beginning with healthy food. The most healing diet includes the following foods: grass fed beef, pastured chicken, wild fish, pastured eggs, oysters, avocados, coconut oil, olive oil, cod liver oil, bone broth from pastured animals, raw pastured butter, raw cow or goat milk, raw cow or goat yogurt and kefir, homemade vegetable juice, steamed vegetables, raw apple cider vinegar, raw honey and perhaps, some fruit here and there. All of these foods need to be hormone free and organic. Each person with Crohn’s disease will be at a different stage in their dealing with this disease and the above listed foods will vary from person to person. Some folks will be able to eat some fruit and cooked vegetables and some will not. Some folks will be able to digest raw milk and some will not. Some folks will have to eat a completely raw primal diet to ensure the best path to healing. Grains, beans, pasteurized dairy, nuts, seeds, added sweeteners, starches and raw vegetables need to be avoided to ensure the best healing of the digestive system. Avoid all processed foods, fast foods, GMO foods and pesticide laden foods. 

Certain supplements will be helpful and these supplements will vary from person to person. These supplements include the following: HCL with pepsin capsules, digestive bitters, digestive enzymes, probiotics, raw cod liver oil, whole foods based vitamin C, whole foods based zinc, other whole foods based vitamins and minerals, adaptogenic herbs, terramin clay and other supplements. 

Besides a radical change in diet, other lifestyle changes include the following: using very little body care products and these body care products need to be organic, getting outside as much as possible and soaking up the sunlight, following circadian rhythm, doing some Earthing (putting your bare feet on the Earth), engaging in moving your body, deep breathing, emotional expression and healing, reducing stress levels, spending time with loved ones, and standing up for yourself. Of course, there are other healthy lifestyle changes to incorporate into your life and it will vary from person to person.

Crohn’s disease is a challenging and sometimes, a major life altering disease. If we are going to see any reduction in Crohn’s disease with the hopes of curing it, we start with what we eat and we eat foods that have healing energy and properties; and from there, we start to radical change the way we live on every level of life: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. 

Cure for Cancer

Everyone has been touched by cancer, by knowing a relative or friend who had or has cancer or by having cancer, yourself, in the past or currently. Most all of us know someone that has died from cancer. Why is cancer such an epidemic in our society? Will there ever be a cure for cancer? Will modern medicine ever discover the cure for cancer or does the cure for cancer lie within the power of Mother Nature?

From my research and investigation, the War on Cancer from modern medicine is not working and the real cure for cancer lies within the natural world. 

The cure for cancer is a combination of several aspects of life, beginning with eating organic and truly healthy food, with a good amount of raw foods, including raw animal protein and raw animal fat. Other natural health aspects to cure cancer include using healthy body care products and cleaning products, following the circadian rhythm of the Sun as best as you can, walking barefoot (Earthing) on natural surfaces, sleeping well as sleeping dictates a healthy or unhealthy immune system, a healthy or unhealthy hormonal system and a healthy or unhealthy bacteria balance, drinking pure and filtered water, avoiding GMO foods, avoiding heavy metals such as mercury, aluminum, fluoride and lead, avoiding negative people and negative thoughts as best as you can, eating with the seasons, moving your body, engaging in some sort of strength training, breathing deeply throughout the day and engaging in a daily meditation and prayer practice.

Menopause and Animal Fats

The entire endocrine system is amazing and marvelous and works harmoniously and perfectly when our lifestyles are harmonious, stress is low and we are eating real food, engaging in meaningful work, fostering wonderful relationship and performing some sort of exercise and inner work.

The endocrine system comprises many glands and feedback systems and it affects every system of the body from the immune system, the reproductive system, the nervous system, the metabolic system and so on.

Many women suffer as they enter menopause with an overwhelming amount of hot flashes and mood swings, coupled with vaginal dryness and painful intercourse. It’s normal for women to experience some hot flashes and perhaps some mood swings, but menopause should not be a horrific experience. Menopause should be viewed as a new birth for women as their bodies are changing and their direction in life is also changing; and it can be viewed and felt this way if the right steps are taken and the one of the most important steps is healthy food, especially healthy fats from animals, such as fermented cod liver oil, grass fed butter, pastured eggs, grass fed beef, wild caught fish and oysters and for some folks, raw milk, raw cream and raw cheese. These healthy fats will nourish the entire endocrine system and it will provide the liver with an extra boost of cholesterol, the building block for all of the hormones that your body produces, such as estrogen and progesterone.

With menopause, the ovaries do not produce as much estrogen; therefore, the adrenal glands and the liver have to pick up the slack and unfortunately, many women do not have healthy adrenal glands and their livers are a little sluggish. The above healthy fats mentioned above, coupled with fermented foods, moderate amounts of good protein, herbs for the adrenals and for hormone balance and a big reduction in the amount of carbohydrate consumption and sugar consumption will help with a smoother menopause.

Other healthy factors include moderate cardio, strength training, emotional expression, support of family and friends and a new-found love and respect for your body.

A big factor for the overall health for all women of all ages is our toxic environment with all the xenoestrogens, that mimic estrogen and over excite the estrogen receptors. Xenoestrogens include pesticides, GMOs, plastics, pharmaceutical hormones, hormones in the commercial milk and meat and even in soy foods and other plants, which are referred to as phytoestrogens. Depending on the situation, mainly with menopause, some phytoestrogens can be beneficial, such as flax oil, evening primrose oil and a few fruits and herbs. However, stay away from the rest of the Xenoestrogens  as best as possible, including all soy products.
