All folate is not created equal. Folic acid is not folate!

Posted in Health, Healthy Alternatives, Nutrition, Vitamin B(s), Vitamins on 31.07.17

We all need folate but not all folate is created equal and folic acid is not folate.

 

Folic acid buyers beware. You may have been told that taking the dietary supplement called “folic acid” would give you adequate stores of folate. Think again and consider this.

Folic acid is a synthetic version of natural folate. Many supplement manufacturers cheap out on their B Complex supplements. They use “folic acid” instead of folate.  When buying a good B Complex supplement, look for the following names of biologically active folate. This is the folate that your body understands and is able to process.

There are other names for these good forms of folate which include Levomefolic acid, 5-MTHF, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate, (6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolate and L-methylfolate or LMF.

As Suzy Cohen wrote in a recent article, the biologically active form of folic acid known as folate is used in cells for DNA production, the cysteine cycle and the break down of homocysteine.

Natural folate can cross your blood brain barrier. Inside your cells, natural folate is used in the methylation cycle.  Natural folate helps you convert homocysteine back into methionine and THF (tetrahydrofolate). This is a good thing. You don’t want homocysteine to build up as it is a risk factor for many illnesses. Homocysteine is a  pro-inflammatory cytokine.

REMEMBER “FOLIC ACID” IS SYNTHETIC. It is the UN-methylated form sold as vitamin B9 (folic acid) in most dietary supplements, especially the more affordable ones. Folic acid is very inexpensive to make.

The NEW Childhood in America! Are You Concerned?

The NEW Childhood in America!

Are You Concerned?

Are you 1 of the 1’s?  Or do you know a 1?

The new childhood in America, I am sad to write that:

1 in 3 is overweight

1 in 6 has learning disabilities

1 in 9 has asthma

1 in 11 has ADHD

1 in 13 has food allergies

1 in 20 has seizures

1 in 45 males have autism

1 in 68 has autism

54% or nearly 1/2 of all children have a chronic illness or they are overweight.

This is the “NEW” normal in our country.

Are you concerned?  I am!  It is time for a change. 

I am Donna, A Voice For Change and this is a great documentary about “Communities Rising” and the power of the “collective people”.  We are the people.  We need to speak up NOW.

Don’t know where to begin.  Watch this.  See if it helps.  Connect with me too and find out what I am doing and how you can help.  Together, standing united, we can and do make a difference.  I hope you will join me to and protect our children from the abuse.

Vitamin C by Pure CellVitamin C
What It Does
Why You Need to Supplement

Vitamin C does so much to help the body thrive.  PureCell Pure C is 100% pure ascorbic acid.

Vitamin C helps the body’s immune system by supporting antibody responses, white blood cell function and activity, and helps maintain normal interferon levels. Vitamin C is one of the most potent dietary antioxidants, providing nutritional support to all functions of the body.

Supplementing with the correct type of vitamin C supports iron absorption from the gastrointestinal tract and is an important component of collagen synthesis. Vitamin C also assists in tissue formation.

The Pure Cell brand Vitamin C comes in easy-to-digest vegetarian capsules available from New Medicine Foundation.  Each container consists of 120, 1,000 mg capsules, that are easy to swallow or can be opened and poured into liquid.  Keep a supply on hand and make Vitamin C a part of your daily supplement intake.

Pearson and the team of caring, supportive, informed and well-trained staff will guide you through the process. Learn how to heal from the inside out without the use of pharmaceutical medications.

Understanding Celiac Disease and Wheat – Gluten Sensitivity

Posted in Digestion, Digestion, Health, Healthy Alternatives, Knowledge is Power Series, Let Food By Thy Medicine Series, Nutrition, Support Group Meeting Recordings, Teleconferences/Webinars, Weight Loss on 19.05.16

Understanding Celiac Disease and
Wheat – Gluten Sensitivity!


There is a lot of info out there today about wheat and gluten sensitivities.  But do you know the latest stats say that most people don’t know they are gluten and/or wheat sensitive let alone that they may have celiac’s disease, either the full blown version or the “lite” version?

Celiac disease is a digestive disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food. People who have celiac disease cannot tolerate a protein called gluten which is found in wheat, rye, barley (malt) and possibly oats. When people with celiac disease eat foods containing gluten, their immune system responds by damaging the small intestine. Specifically, tiny fingerlike protrusions, called villi, on the lining of the small intestine are lost. Nutrients from food are absorbed into the bloodstream through these villi. Without villi, a person becomes malnourished – – regardless of the quantity of food eaten.

Because the body’s own immune system causes the damage, celiac disease is considered an autoimmune disorder. However, it is also classified as a disease of malabsorbtion because nutrients are not absorbed. Celiac Disease is also known as celiac sprue, nontropical sprue, and gluten-sensitive enteropathy.

All of this can be very confusing if you are not on top of all the latest research.  Then you need to decipher who’s data is real and legitimate (without bias) vs who’s data is slighted because of conflicts of interest!  Listen to find out some facts about celiac’s disease and wheat and gluten sensitivities. Listen as others share their own experience with Coach D as she dives into this informative and possibly life-changing topic.

Food is our biggest deterrent to great health and wellness.  Stop the yo yo dieting once and for all!  Learn about wheat, gluten and celiac disease!

I might add that when it comes to food, eat food in its purest form.  Find recipes that combine only wholefood ingredients. Find substances that are natural thickeners like Kuzu Root Starch or Agar Agar Sea Vegetable Flakes.  Stay away from corn starch and flour for thickening.  Experiment with your crock pot.  Cut up sweet potatoes in fry fashion and mix them in a bag of egg whites and salt.  Then baken them on a cookie sheet that is covered with a little coconut oil.  Bake at 400 degrees until desired crispness is obtained.  Find healthy, in-season, fruits and eat them for dessert.  Baked apples are wonderful and there are recipes galore.  AND baking apples (cored) and sprinkling them with cinnamon leaves a wonderful smell throughout your home.  Natures room freshener for me!  Listen in for more information and shared conversation from participants…..

This  on-going weekly teleconference focuses on over-all health, weight and your sanity.  This week, special guest Dr. Edward W. Pearson talks about how weight loss programs deplete hormones like progesterone, thyroid, growth hormone, etc and actually set you up for a rebound weight challenge.

BLOG VII –  Dr. Pearson is our guest this week and will be discussing how weight loss programs deplete hormones like progesterone, thyroid, growth hormone, etc and actually sets you up for a rebound weight challenge.   Stop the yo yo dieting once and for all!  

Please refer to the other blogs in this series for beginning recordings along with my recap/diary for the past six weeks.  That will get you started with information about the program and how I am personally progressing.  This week the focus is on how weight loss programs can actually further deplete an already depleted hormonal system within the body.  Hormones like progesterone, thyroid, growth hormone, testosterone, etc, can be depleted more, causing even more issues including the rebound weight challenge.  Focusing on why this happens and what  you can do to stop the yo yo weight madness is the topic of the discussion featuring our guest Dr. Edward W. Pearson of the New Medicine Foundation who focuses on health and wellness  and treats patients virtually around the world.

Following is my diary for the week:

04/14/16 – I’m still in NJ caring for my dad.  I am maintaining the paleo way of eating for the most part BUT am not 100% true.  My dad won’t eat paleo and carbs are the mainstay of his diet.  BUT I am still feeling great and my cloths are getting looser.  I will be glad when I am home and back in a nurturing environment.

04/14/16 – Skipping breakfast today except for a small amount of ham that I ate this morning so that I was able to take my supplements.  After reviewing the best times to eat the “paleo” way, it seems that our ancestors spent the day hunting and gathering and then prepared their meal in the late afternoon or evening, consuming all that they gathered in one sitting. I have decided that I will let my body dictate how I eat and as long as I am not hungry, I won’t force myself.  I will instead eat when I am substantially hungry and will also monitor my ketone levels.  I now show trace amounts of ketones in my urine and hope to increase that to moderate by the weekend.

04/10/16 – Home at last.  It will take me a couple of days to rest and re-acclimate but boy am I glad to be home.  I need to shop and get back to preparing meals as per the paleo way of eating. I also got my ketone test strips in so once I’m back in the game I will be able to monitor my progress.

I really need to get to the store but am swamped with work and playing catch up with mail, etc here at home.  Hopefully tomorrow or Wednesday will see me caught up and back on track.  I do feel great though.  I have no desire for carbs, sugar or eating poorly or over eating for that matter.  Eventually I will not have a problem with eating once per day and I have decided that this will be my end goal when it comes to food consumption.
