So Close That It Is Far Away / New American Plate / Lola’s Secretarial Service / Friday: At School ALL Day

Like the Flower
that shatters the
Stone
,
Love can fracture
the Heart
hardened by the absence
of Joy.

Even the most fragile
has the power to overcome
the strongest force.

Love Majestic
in its simplicity,
opens wide the window
of Wisdom.

“Being deeply Loved by someone
gives you strength,
while Loving someone deeply
gives you courage.”
Lao Tzu

To speak
in the present tense,
and live
in this precious moment,
requires us to Love
what is all around,
to regret
not one minute,
and Love
what is in us
and is
us.

  Tomorrow can fade to black or rise like a magnificent Rainbow.

Have you ever thought
of home?
When home
is so close,
that it is far
away,
and you
hold on
to your thoughts
so hard
you can never
stay
in the place
of your dreams,
that for which
you Pray.

       Put on each day and wear it all day long.

And you pause
to ask,
“Am I
living in the embrace
of memories
never chanced to be?”
The colors
of our dreams
fade
onto sad deserted shores
of such memories
never brought to
Life,
never made.

 Beauty wakes pure authentic feelings.

The greatest threat
we face
is change,
but we cannot
survive
without it.

So put on
each day
and wear it
all day long.
And listen
very carefully
for the night bird
song.
Then give
your troubles
to the song,
not the singer.

There is serenity
in what we partake
with the guidance
of our Lord,
even when we fail
to contemplate
the incomprehensible.

  Love opens wide the window of Wisdom.

Think
not on yourself.
Make not a
Stone
of what once was
your Heart.

My Dear Friends,
One

act of Mercy
can free the
Soul.
One fragile Flower
can shatter
the stone.

Tomorrow
can fade to
black,
or rise
like a magnificent
Rainbow.

                       Live in this precious moment.

No matter
where you run,
without the Love
of God,
you keep running
into yourself.
But With
His Precious Love,
God will raise you
Lovingly
above yourself.

Beauty
wakes pure authentic
feelings.
It touches the
Soul.
And the beauty
in your Heart
far exceeds that
of any Flower,
any setting of the Sun,
any sum of the parts
more than the
whole.

                    Love what is all around.

The bitter tragedy
of Human Life
is that it is too fragile,
a transitory, provisional parchment
of living and
being.

Yet,
to be sheltered in the warmth
of Heavenly Grace,
provides a Landscape
laced with Eternal Life
and Lovingness.

                     Beauty touches the Soul.

Let us pause
to reflect
upon our allotted time,
and give
Thanks.
We can shatter
the World of illusion
and become that
which God
truly wants of us:
to become
His Child
again.

Goodnight.

                   Put on each day and wear it.

“You are a Divine Being.
An all-powerful Creator.
You are a Deity in jeans and a t-shirt,
and within you dwells the infinite wisdom
of the ages and the sacred creative force
of All that is, will be and ever was.”

Anthon St. Maarten

In Philosophy
this week:

Part I
Is it possible
for our brains to be hacked
like computers?
What are the implications
of gaining access to this
technology?
What are the questions
we need to ask
relative to the ethics
involved in mind reading
and control?
Under hypnosis
reality can be altered.
What are some Historical
examples
of Human minds
being retrained
(altering reality)?
What devastation resulted
from mass hypnosis?
And what of Freedom?
Will it become
a concept of the past?

Part II
What is Life?
Is Life essentially
energy,
that can never be destroyed,
only transformed?
Does energy
have no beginning
and no end.
How does our understanding
of Life as energy
relate to concepts of
eternal Life.

No single food can prevent cancer,
but the right combination of foods may help make a difference.
At mealtimes, strike a balance of at least
two-thirds plant-based foods
and no more than one-third animal protein.
This “New American Plate”
is an important cancer fighting tool,
according to the American Institute for Cancer Research.

Fruits and vegetables are rich in cancer-fighting nutrients
— and the more color, the more nutrients they contain.
These foods can help lower your risk in a second way, too,
when they help you reach and maintain a healthy body weight.
Carrying extra pounds increases the risk for multiple cancers,
including colon, esophagus, and kidney cancers.
Eat a variety of vegetables, especially dark green,
red, and orange vegetables.

Naturally occurring folate is an important B vitamin
that may help protect against cancers of the colon, rectum, and breast. You can find it in abundance on the breakfast table.
Fortified breakfast cereals and whole wheat products
are good sources of folate.
So are orange juice, melons, and strawberries.

Other good sources of folate are asparagus and eggs.
You can also find it in beans, sunflower seeds, and leafy green vegetables like spinach or romaine lettuce.
The best way to get folate is not from a pill,
but by eating enough fruits, vegetables,
and enriched grain products.

Cutting back on processed meats
like bologna, ham, and hot dogs will help lower your risk
of colorectal and stomach cancers.
Also, eating meats that have been preserved by smoking
or with salt raises your exposure to chemicals
that can potentially cause cancer.

Whether it’s the lycopene
the pigment that gives tomatoes their red color –
or something else isn’t clear.
But some studies have linked eating tomatoes
to reduced risk of several types of cancer,
including prostate cancer.
Studies also suggest that processed tomato products
such as juice, sauce, or paste
increase the cancer-fighting potential.

Green tea, may be a strong cancer fighter.
In laboratory studies, green tea has slowed or prevented
the development of cancer in colon, liver, breast, and prostate cells.
It also had a similar effect in lung tissue and skin.
And in some longer term studies,
tea was associated with lower risks
for bladder, stomach, and pancreatic
cancers.

Grapes and grape juice, especially purple and red grapes,
contain resveratrol.
Resveratrol has strong antioxidant
and anti-inflammatory properties.
In laboratory studies, it has prevented
the kind of damage that can trigger
the cancer process in cells.

Our Cherished Dreams / The Perfect Food / Cancer and Deodorants / Friday: Fossil Mania

As we embrace
this moment
and say hello,

we usher in goodbye,
and look
into the space
where once lived
our Cherished Dreams.
lotusThe road of Life narrows

the longer it gets,
as we stumble and fall,
never truly knowing why.

And from those
who help us up,
who sustain and nurture us,
who come to Love us,
who forgive us all,
the lessons

we learn from living,
tell us
Wonderful Things:

While in Love,
there is no
measure of time,
no distance
between our thoughts
of each other.

With someone you Love,
you live in a space
the size of your
Heart.
And everything
you truly want
in Life,
is inside.

tree-glowing-b

      We have all been dreaming.

Now,
you may think
that’s not much space.
But the vast and possibly
Infinite Universe,

that houses all the Stars and Galaxies,
most of which
we simply cannot see,
started in a space
much smaller
than the period
at the end of this
sentence [.]

Most physicists now believe
that the entire Universe
began with one Big Bang.
At first,
all the matter and energy
in the Universe
was crammed together
in one unimaginably small dot.

Move out of your house, and Live in your Heart.

The Universe
of your awareness,
most of which
you simply cannot see,
began with but a tiny beat
of your very small precious Heart.
And now,
it encompasses
everything in this World
your Heart
desires.

“Have you never tried
to find a comfort from inside you?
Have you never been happy
just to hear your song?
Have you never let someone else
be strong?”

– John Farrar

Yes,
LOVE
occupies the Infinite space
between every beat

of your Heart.
Eternity
truly is Love
never ending.

If you want to fly
across the Sunrise
and discover
what begins each
shining day,
and begin your
endless flight
through time,
to someone be
Eternally mine”.

“Love is like a resting place,
a shelter from the storm.
It exists to give you comfort.
It is there to keep you warm.
And in those times of trouble,
when you are most alone
the memory of Love
will bring you
Home.”

John Denver

There is a hidden landscape
that exists
within you –
  a Divine Essence.
Let the Divine
within
claim its place
in your Heart,
and in your Life.

Honoring the Love
within you,
is accepting
the Gift of Life,
the Gift of God’s
Love.

A hidden landscape exists within you.

When the Truth
of your Love
joins with another,
you form

“To thine own self
be true
– William Shakespeare

Who you are
cannot be defined
by who you think
you are.
You can never really see
yourself,
except in the reflection
of someone’s eyes,
someone who truly Loves
You,
as God Loves
You.

swan

You can never really see yourself.

Through your tears
of Joy,
will you be washed clean
of all doubt,
all sadness,
every moment
of deep regret.

In quantum physics,
if something is not forbidden,
it necessarily happens.

Do not forbid
the Love of God
and the Joy
He envisions for YOU
to enter your
Heart.

The Antennae Galaxies (also known as NGC 4038 and 4039) are a pair of distorted colliding spiral galaxies about 70 million light-years away, in the constellation of Corvus (The Crow). This view combines ALMA observations, made in two different wavelength ranges during the observatory’s early testing phase, with visible-light observations from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. The Hubble image is the sharpest view of this object ever taken and serves as the ultimate benchmark in terms of resolution. ALMA observes at much longer wavelengths which makes it much harder to obtain comparably sharp images. However, when the full ALMA array is completed its vision will be up to ten times sharper than Hubble. Most of the ALMA test observations used to create this image were made using only twelve antennas working together — far fewer than will be used for the first science observations — and much closer together as well. Both of these factors make the new image just a taster of what is to come. As the observatory grows, the sharpness, speed, and quality of its observations will increase dramatically as more antennas become available and the array grows in size. This is nevertheless the best submillimetre-wavelength image ever taken of the Antennae Galaxies and opens a new window on the submillimetre Universe. While visible light — shown here mainly in blue — reveals the newborn stars in the galaxies, ALMA’s view shows us something that cannot be seen at those wavelengths: the clouds of dense cold gas from which new stars form. The ALMA observations — shown here in red, pink and yellow — were made at specific wavelengths of millimetre and submillimetre light (ALMA bands 3 and 7), tuned to detect carbon monoxide molecules in the otherwise invisible hydrogen clouds, where new stars are forming. Massive concentrations of gas are found not only in the hearts of the two galaxies but also in the chaotic region where they are colliding.

Let the Divine within claim its place.

The Heart
is a theme woven
throughout the Holy Bible
and is mentioned
in the King James Version
830 times!

Why?

b-b

       Form a Sacred Whole.

Hope
is one thing
that defines us
as Human Beings.

Hope connects us
to something more,
to something larger
than we envision

as ourselves,
larger than Life itself.

Hope
is the Whisper
of God,
telling us
of His Love.
It is His Grace,
flowing through
the will
to be.

“We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a humdrum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a Universe in which there are far more galaxies than people.”                – Carl Sagan

My Friend,
we have all been
dreaming.
Now,
close your tired eyes
and rest your
weary mind.
God’s Promise
is to stay with
you,
and let you feel
just how much
He Loves You.

“Our revels now are ended.
These our actors,

As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp’d towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Ye all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made of, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.”
– William Shakespeare

God can never be
closer to you,
than to live in
your precious Heart.
And it is there
He dwells.
Go to Him
in Prayer –
in the Cathedral
of your Heart.

The Essence
of your Being
will one day be found
scattered throughout

the Universe
of your awareness,

And your Life,

When the Truth of your Love joins with another, you form a Sacred Whole.

The Avocado

has been called the world’s most perfect food? It has achieved this distinction because many nutritionists claim it not only contains everything a person needs to survive – but it has also been found to contribute to the prevention and control of Alzheimer’s, cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other health conditions.

The avocado originated in Puebla, Mexico and its use dates back to 10,000 years B.C. Since AD 900, the avocado tree has been cultivated and grown in Central and South America. In the 19th century, the avocado made its entry into California, and has since become a very successful commercial crop. Ninety-five percent (95%) of U.S. avocados are gown in Southern California.

The avocado, also called the alligator pear, is a high-fiber, sodium-and cholesterol-free food that provides nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, is rich in healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats (such as omega-3 fatty acids), vitamins A, C, D, E, K and the B vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, vitamin B-6, vitamin B-12 and folate) – as well as potassium.

Foods naturally rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as avocados, are widely acknowledged as the secret to a healthy heart, a brilliant brain and eagle eyes.

Dr. Daniel G. Amen, a clinical neuroscientist, psychiatrist, brain-imaging expert and author of the New York Times bestseller Change Your Brain, Change Your Life counts avocados as one of the top brain-healthy foods that can help prevent Alzheimer’s Disease. That’s not only because of the avocado’s omega-3 fatty acid content but also its Vitamin E content,

An international journal called Alzheimer ’s Disease and Associated Disorders, reported its findings from years of clinical trials – high doses of Vitamin E can neutralize free radicals and the buildup of proteins to reverse the memory loss in Alzheimer’s patients; reverse symptoms of Alzheimer’s in the early stages and retard the progression of the disease;

Folate content – helps to prevent the formation of tangled nerve fibers associated with Alzheimer’s.

The virtues of the avocado are too numerous to mention, but here are just a few more health benefits that its nutritional profile provide:
Monounsaturated Fats – These types of fats help control triglycerides in the bloodstream, lower blood cholesterol and control diabetes.

Folate – This water-soluble B vitamin promotes healthy cell and tissue development. According the National Institute of Health’s Office of Dietary Supplements, “This is especially important during periods of rapid cell division and growth such as infancy and pregnancy. Folate is also essential for metabolism of homocysteine and helps maintain normal levels of this amino acid.”

Lutein – This is a carotenoid (a natural pigment) that protects against cataracts and certain types of cancer, and reduces the risk of macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in adults 65 years of age and older. Avocados contain 3 or more times as much lutein as found in other common vegetables and fruits.

Oleic acid and Potassium – Both of these nutrients also help in lowering cholesterol and reducing the risk of high blood pressure.

Before you indulge in avocados to your heart’s content, however, remember that they have lots of calories because of their fat content. According to WebMD, “A medium-sized avocado contains 30 grams of fat, as much as a quarter-pound burger. That’s why diet experts have long urged Americans to go easy on avocados in favor of less fatty fruits and vegetables. But now nutritionists are taking another look. They’re finding that most of the fat in an avocado is monounsaturated – the “good” kind that actually lowers cholesterol levels. Thanks to this new understanding, the U.S. government recently revised its official nutrition guidelines to urge Americans to eat more avocados.”

Some deodorants could cause breast cancer: Swiss study
 Published: 26 Sep 2016  read more

Women who regularly use deodorants containing aluminium salts could risk developing breast cancer, a new Swiss study warns.

“I think we should avoid all deodorants containing aluminium salts,” according to  André-Pascal Sappino.

“And it’s very difficult to be sure that the so-called ‘without aluminium’ brands really are without,” added the oncology Professor from the University of Geneva.

“Asbestos is cheap, has very attractive industrial potential, and it took 50 years to ban it. We hope it doesn’t take so long to ban aluminium salts,” said Sappino.

Like asbestos, aluminium is not detectably mutagenic in bacteria, but subcutaneous injections of aluminium salts in mice resulted in “very aggressive tumours”.

The study, co-authored by four researchers from the Clinique des Grangettes, is published in the International Journal of Cancer.

and transcend the moment
to reach for the stars,
where one day,
we will surely be.

My Dear Friends,

Foods That Help Fight Depression
read more from WebMD.com

Turkey

The traditional Thanksgiving bird has the protein building-block tryptophan, which your body uses to make serotonin. That’s a brain chemical that plays a key role in depression, researchers say. In fact, some antidepressant drugs work by targeting the way your brain uses serotonin. You can get the same mood-boosting effect from chicken and soybeans.

Brazil Nuts

This snack is rich in selenium, which helps protect your body from tiny, damaging particles called free radicals. One study found that young people who didn’t have enough of this nutrient in their diets were more likely to be depressed. The researchers couldn’t say that low selenium caused depression, though. Just one Brazil nut has almost half your daily requirement of the mineral so be careful to limit how many you eat. Other foods with this mineral include brown rice, lean beef, sunflower seeds, and seafood.

Carrots

They’re full of beta-carotene, which you can also get from pumpkin, spinach, sweet potatoes, and cantaloupe. Studies have linked this nutrient to lower levels of depression. There’s not enough evidence to say that it can prevent the disorder, but it can’t hurt to get more in your diet.

Clams and Mussels

These seafood favorites are a good source of B-12. Some studies say that people with low levels of the vitamin are more likely to have depression. It may be that a lack of it causes a shortage of a substance called s-adenosylmethionine (SAM), which your brain needs to process other chemicals that affect your mood. If you’re looking for other B-12 foods, try lean beef, milk, and eggs.

Coffee

A jolt of caffeine can be a pick-me-up that helps you feel more motivated. But if you have postpartum depression or panic disorder, some studies suggest that it might make your symptoms worse. Other researchers say a cup of joe can lower your risk of getting depression, though they’re not sure why.

Leafy Greens

They’re packed with folate, which your brain cells need to work well and which may help protect against depression. Food manufacturers in the U.S. add this vitamin, also known as B9, to enriched grains like pasta and rice. You can also get it from lentils, lima beans, and asparagus.

Salmon

This and other fish like herring and tuna are high in polyunsaturated fats. Researchers think those can help you fight depression. One type of these fats, called omega-3 fatty acids, may help brain cells use chemicals that can affect your mood. A few small studies show that people who weren’t depressed had higher levels of omega-3s than those with the mood disorder.

Milk

It’s a good source of vitamin D. If you have very low levels of this nutrient in your body, that can sometimes cause depression. One Norwegian study found that people who took a vitamin D supplement were less depressed a year later than those who didn’t. Don’t like milk? Boost the D in your diet with enriched cereals and juices, and canned fish.

Caution: Junk Food

It may be fast and filling, but these processed foods can be bad news for your mood. Scientists have studied how diets high in sugar, simple carbohydrates, and fatty foods affect how you feel. Many found some link between these unhealthy eats and depression. Your best bet: a well-balanced diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein.

Caution: Alcohol

Heavy drinking can make depression symptoms worse over time, because alcohol makes your brain less active. It also can make antidepressant medications less effective.

Nothing But Love / Super foods for Coping with Stress / School Starts on Tuesday Sept. 8

“Only your Heart
Knows the way,
Because
It is t
he Way.”
                    – Wm. C. Anderson

Around School 5-5-14 001 - Prof. Lacey

Dedicated to our very own Professor of Epic Literature, Latin and Greek, Mr. Lacey. Among the greatest Blessings in my life, and the lives of so many others, is knowing this gentle Heart, this Loving Soul. What an Honor to know Mr. Harry H. Lacey. Human kindness is overflowing in the life of this truly remarkable man.  Thank you for all you do.                                We Love you too.

“Ninety-nine percent
of who you are
is invisible
and untouchable.”

R. Buckminster Fuller

Yes, we are almost nonexistent.

Now combine that knowledge
With this observation from
from another of the
most powerful minds
to ever exist:
THOMAS EDISON

“Its obvious that we don’t know
one millionth of one percent
about anything.”

bird in rabbit

Unbelievable. A bird raised her young inside our cast iron Rabbit welded to the railing. “Uh, what’s up Doc?”

And it becomes apparent that we,
who are almost
nonexistent,
know next to nothing
about anything.

But we keep
wondering
about everything,
not realizing
that the things
we think about,
may not even
exist at all.

It may be time,
which really doesn’t exist,
read more
to realize that we need to
truly enjoy
what little there is
to this life.

No wonder life is so short.

Our birds have been bathing, feeding and protecting us as Natural pesticides. Thank you! Please do NOT poison your precious children with pesticides. Replace these toxins with knowledge, compassion and new, happy feathered friends. They love Life too.

There is so very little
to reality,
and it is so fragile
and so filled with illusion.
Yes, it may indeed
possess the qualities
of a dream.

So, let’s either wake up or go back to sleep,
we dream either way.

But what ever you choose to do,
give thanks to your Loving Creator.

He made you out of
virtually nothing,
nothing but Love.

love quote

Which leads me to believe
that Love
is all there really is.
And if you think about it,
that is a truly powerful
and unbelievably beautiful Gift.
You are Love.
And you are deeply Loved.

Perhaps saying
“I Love you”
has a much deeper meaning
than we will ever
be able
to fully realize.

Tree House Masters move over! Dr. A through imagination (and a lazy streak) simply let this tree grow under the ham shack. He thinks it will gently lift it into the air.                                – Genius!       OK.  Just lazy.

Saying
“I Love you”,
may truly mean
“I am you.”

Yes,
we are one.

And such awareness
can open the door
to all the loving
compassion
that dwells in your
Heart.

Great truths are simple.
Perhaps, they are so simple
that we shall never
comprehend them.
After all,
they come from
God.

        Nothing but Love

“The nature of ‘reality’
is not only stranger than you imagine,
it’s stranger than you can imagine!

There is a saying that
“truth is stranger than fiction”
and this certainly applies to the nature of reality,
because in the light of increasing evidence,
what we have accepted to be the ‘truth’
about our everyday reality
is much more like the ‘fiction’
of our everyday reality.”
– Dawn Lester  read more

Ann

Our students honor the Loving memory of Anne Frank and over a million precious Jewish children lost to the evil of the holocaust. No. We shall never forget. Never. And we shall never stop Loving you.

The precious winds of time
Sometimes blow
Only one way,
Sometimes, we feel,
Not at all.

Such a gentle flowing breeze
At dawn of day,
Reminds us of our brief stay,
Whispering your name,
Beckoning you to stay
In Love
With this Precious Gift of Life
One more day.

“The greatest happiness in life is the conviction that we are loved.”     – Victor Hugo

“Kindness in words creates confidence;
kindness in thinking creates profoundness;
kindness in giving creates Love.”
Lao Tzu

Should you pause
And close your eyes,
Your heart
May see again,
Past the darkening nights
Of transgression,
Into the Light
Of forgiveness,
Into the soft, glowing
Eternity
Of your precious Heart.

And as you feel
The passing gentle breeze,
Across the beauty
Of the morning sky,
You cannot deny,
The very Breath of God.

“Looking back,
I have this to regret,
that too often when I loved,
I did not say so.”

Dr. A with Annie and Alex (a few years ago. OK. Maybe a few more than a few.)

My Dear Friends,
Reach beyond who you are.
Live in the lives of those around you.
Move your mind, body, and spirit.
Step out of your comfort zone,
Open up the vast,
Unexplored space
Inside your Heart.

It too
Has no horizon,
No boundary,
No limit.

Your Love
Is Infinite.
It flows through you
From the Infinite Love
Of God.

Superfoods
for Coping with Stress

When it comes to combating stress levels,
what you eat may help relieve your tension.
Some foods may help stabilize blood sugar
or your emotional response.
Here are12 foods to reach for
(GREAT for KIDS):

Green leafy vegetables

Like spinach they contain folate, which produces dopamine, a pleasure-inducing brain chemical, helping you keep calm,” says Heather Mangieri, RDN, of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. A 2012 study in the Journal of Affective Disorders of 2,800 middle-aged and elderly people and found those who consumed the most folate had a lower risk of depression. A 2013 study from the University of Otago found that college students tended to feel calmer, happier, and more energetic on days they ate more fruits and veggies.

Turkey breast

 Tryptophan in turkey is to blame for that food coma on Thanksgiving.  The amino acid, found in protein-containing foods, helps produce serotonin, “the chemical that regulates hunger and feelings of happiness and well-being,” In a 2006 study published in the Journal of Psychiatry Neuroscience, men and women who were argumentative (based on personality tests) who took tryptophan were perceived as more agreeable compared with when they didn’t take it. (Canadian Institutes of Health Research) Other foods high in tryptophan include nuts, seeds, tofu, fish, lentils, oats, beans, and eggs.

Oatmeal

According to MIT research, carbohydrates can help the brain make serotonin, the same substance regulated by antidepressants. A complex carb like oatmeal won’t contribute to your already potential spike in blood glucose.”

Yogurt

A 2013 UCLA study revealed that consuming probiotics in yogurt reduced brain activity in areas that handle emotion, including stress. You really can’t go wrong by adding more of it to your diet.

Salmon

Ratchet up anxiety hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol. The omega-3 fatty acids in salmon help counteract the negative effects of stress hormones,” according to Lisa Cimperman, RD, of the University Hospitals Case Medical Center. In a study funded by the National Institutes of Health, Oregon State University medical students who took omega-3 supplements had a 20% reduction in anxiety. One 3-ounce serving of cooked wild salmon can have more than 2,000 milligrams of omega-3s, double the daily intake recommended by the American Heart Association for people with heart disease.

Blueberries blueberries

The antioxidants and phytonutrients found in berries help improve your body’s response to stress and fight stress-related free radicals.” Research has also shown that blueberry eaters experience a boost in natural killer cells, “a type of white blood cell that plays a vital role in immunity according to Cynthia Sass, MPH, RD, Health’s contributing nutrition editor.

pistaciosPistachios

When you have an ongoing loop of negative thoughts playing in your mind, doing something repetitive with your hands may help silence your inner monologue. Think knitting or kneading bread—or even shelling nuts like pistachios or peanuts. The rhythmic moves will help you relax. Pistachios have heart-health benefits. Eating pistachios reduce acute stress by lowering blood pressure and heart rate. They contain key phytonutrients that provide antioxidant support for cardiovascular health.

Dark chocolate

Just a bite, not a whole bar, of dark chocolate can help to regulate your stress levels. Research has shown that it can reduce your stress hormones, including cortisol. The antioxidants in cocoa trigger the walls of your blood vessels to relax, lowering blood pressure and improving circulation. Dark chocolate contains unique natural substances that create a sense of euphoria similar to the feeling of being in love!” Go for varieties that contain at least 70% cocoa.

milkMilk

Fortified milk is an excellent source of vitamin D, a nutrient to boost happiness. A 50-year-long study by London’s UCL Institute of Child Health found an association between reduced levels of vitamin D and an increased risk of panic and depression. People whith sufficient vitamin D levels had a reduced risk of panic disorders. Other foods high in vitamin D include salmon, egg yolks, and fortified cereal.

Seeds

Flaxseed, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds are great sources of magnesium (as are leafy greens, yogurt, nuts, and fish). Loading up on the mineral helps regulate emotions. Magnesium has been shown to help alleviate depression, fatigue, and irritability.

Avocadoalvacado

This superfruit helps shut down stress-eating by filling your belly and making you feel more satisfied. In a 2014 study by Loma Linda University (which we MUST note was sponsored by the Hass Avocado Board), reduced desire to eat more by 40% for the three hours.

cashewsCashews

Researchers gave zinc supplements to people who were diagnosed with anxiety symptoms (irritability, lack of ability to concentrate) and patients saw a 31% decrease in anxiety, according to Nutrition and Metabolic Insights. Zinc affects the levels of a nerve chemical that influences mood. Other zinc-rich foods are oysters, beef, chicken, and yogurt. Cashews are also rich in omega-3s and protein, so they’re a smart snack.

Foods Proven To Kill and Prevent CANCER / Trip to Main Event

Foods
S
cientifically Proven to Kill CANCER

Click here to read more about 9 anti-cancer foods you cannot ignore e

R. J. & my Foot

Rosie Jr. and his favorite pillow – my foot.

In order to defeat cancer and ensure there is no recurrence, the body must be brought into balance and the immune system rebuilt and fine tuned. So how is this feat accomplished? Detox and achieve a slightly alkaline pH, while filling the body with the best, organic, nutritionally dense food available. Your goal is to rebuild a killer immune system as you bathe every non-cancerous cell in your body with nutrition. By the way, you can purchase naturally alkaline water – ETERNAL WATER by name – at your local health food store.

Specific foods known to eliminate cancer:

Omega 3

Mrs. Anderson is again busy tutoring students.

Mrs. Anderson is again busy tutoring students.

Oily fish, fish oil, flax seed oil, hemp oil, and healthy oil blend supplements provide omega 3 fatty acids (and other beneficial fatty acids), which fight inflammation and make the body less hospitable to cancer cells. Vitamin D is also known to kill cancer, and you can find many fish oils and some vegan oil blends with vitamin D in them. Personally, I take D3 daily for arthritis. Yes, I have found relief from the pain. Thank you again, Linda Latham, for the compassionate recommendation.

Cruciferous Vegetables

Cruciferous vegetables include broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, Brussel sprouts, watercress, kale, collard greens, cauliflower, bok choy, turnips, rutabagas, radishes, arugula, and more. These vegetables contain sulforaphane and other helpful compounds, which help fight tumors, breast, prostate, brain, and colorectal cancers, as well as leukemia. Broccoli sprouts and mature broccoli in combination really pack nutritional, cancer fighting punch.

Berries

Black raspberries appear to reign supreme, though all berries contain cancer fighting phytonutrients and high amounts of ellagic acid, which inhibit tumor growth.

Maitake and Shiitake Mushrooms

Google maitake mushrooms cancer. Continue your search and study after study reveals they do. Mushrooms boost immune function and are a great source of antioxidants. They are also rich in vitamins C and B vitamins as well as calcium and other minerals.

Tumeric

Curcumin, found in turmeric, inhibits the spread of cancer (metastases) along with its anti-inflammatory and oxidative effects. Tumeric can be found at farmer’s markets in root form. It can be used liberally to spice your food (great on salads or in salad dressing as well as in cooked dishes) with no side effects. Curcumin also comes in pill or tablet form available from your health food store.

Tomatoes

The active compounds found in tomatoes, carotenoids and lycopene (especially lycopene), are very helpful, especially in the fight of prostrate and pancreatic cancer in men. Seven to ten helpings are week are suggested, both cooked and raw juice. To gain the health benefits of juice, make your own. Store bought tomato juice will be pasteurized. Lycopene is a strong antioxidant.

Folate

Egg yolks,  avocadoes,  apricots,  green leafy vegetables, and pumpkin are among the foods rich in folate. For meat eaters, chicken livers are very high in folate. Studies involving folate or its synthetic form, folic acid, show a significant reduced risk of colorectal cancer. Folate or folic acid is essential for the body to correctly replicate DNA.

Garlic

Even the National Cancer Institute admits garlic “…may reduce the risk of developing several types of cancer, especially cancers of the gastrointestinal tract”. Garlic reduces inflammation, fights free radicals, and fights cancer. Eat it raw or chop it up and let it sit for 10-15 minutes before cooking with it or its beneficial compound, allicin, will not be released. Garlic may be purchased in pill or tables form from your health food store.

Grapes

Mr. Lacey is helping with Latin, Greek & Epic Literature

Mr. Lacey, with our gratitude, is helping with Latin, Greek & Epic Literature.

The compound found in red grapes, resveratrol, is a powerful antioxidant that also saves cells from oxidant-caused death. Grape seeds have huge benefits. We recommend you don’t eat grapes without seeds.

Conclusion

An alkaline, balanced diet with plenty of nutrition, and as few toxins as possible, makes the body inhospitable to cancer. Sugar feeds cancer. Processed and refined foods feed cancer. Raw, organic vegetables, especially when grown for maximum nutrient content (as opposed to large scale farming) should be the foundation of any healthy diet. We also recommend that anyone with cancer undergo a full body detox with a supplement regimen specifically designed for your current state of health. For more information on what to do for cancer, check out the first three sources. For information on detoxifying, check out Cheap And Easy Detox Diet Plan.
