When you are spending your time cooking to avoid grains, it is difficult to give up those old classic recipes like spaghetti and meatballs, but I’ve got you covered. Here is a grain free recipe for that you and the kids can enjoy.
What you’ll need:
4 small organic zucchini’s
2 packages of organic portabella mushrooms
1 pound of grass fed ground beef
1 jar of Muir Glen Organic Spaghetti sauce
2 to 3 freshly chopped cloves or raw garlic
Organic spices including: cinnamon, marjoram, sea salt, black pepper, oregano, turmeric, rosemary, and crushed red pepper flakes
Optional: freshly grated parmesan, 1 can Native Forest coconut cream
What to do:
The meatballs are easy. If you want to do some fancy ones, then find that recipe elsewhere. It’s difficult enough cooking every meal without making something as simple as a ball of meat into a gourmet challenge. Just make balls of meat and cook them.
Once mostly cooked, drain the excess fat from the pan (the Torah says, throughout our generations not to eat the fat or the blood of our meats). Next, wash, chop your zucchini and mushrooms as you wish. I did long spears here, but had a hard time fitting them into my pan, so you decide. Lay these on top of your meat on medium low heat, season liberally with organic spices, then cover for a few minutes.
Throw the chopped veggies on top of your meatballs, then cover.
Cover it just long enough to get some room in your pan for the spaghetti sauce, and then pour it in. Taste, season again until you like, it; then serve. You can top it off with grated parmesan if you tolerate dairy, or for a super nifty twist, try adding a can of Native Forest brand (BPA free) coconut cream. I like to add the raw garlic last for that extra medicinal punch but you can add it in with the spices if you aren’t as hard core as I am.
Suramin kills parasites. If it kills parasites, it kills germs. Bacteria are what viruses (phages) use to replicate. Viruses have been found in the guts of children with Autism according to Dr. Andrew Wakefield. Before you say, “He’s been debunked,” please realize that his debunker, Brian Deer has recently been proven a fraud! Research that for yourself. I am not saying that Suramin can’t help, but it does have some very scary side effects, per the Mayo Clinic.
Gluten also has been shown to cause a worsening of symptoms for children with autism. Why do you think that is? Probably because Dr. Wakefield is right; that this is a gut problem. Research GAPS (gut and psychology symdrome) or read the Book, “Second Brain,” (link below).
The problem may not be MMR exactly in your child’s case. It could be any virus or microbe causing gut dysbiosis, which would interrupt your child’s body’s ability to manufacture neurotransmitters. 90% of neurotransmitters are made in the gut! That is why GAPS is real! Once neurotransmitters are not being made properly, you will see physical and emotional symptoms. Once gluten gets into the gut, worsening the problems, food proteins will leak into the blood, possibly reaching the brain, causing further neurological damage.
I probably should not be writing this. It could be hazardous to my health, but I’m just sick and tired of lies, lies, lies! After reading two books: False Flag 911 copyright 2008, and The Big Bamboozle copyright 2012, written by Philip Marshall, who was recently found dead with a gun in his left hand (he was right handed). His two children were also found dead with him. It was ruled a double homicide and suicide!
Here are just a few of the facts that he uncovered:
(1) Philip Marshall was an experienced commercial pilot, and when he heard from the 911 Commission investigation that the pilots/copilots of the four Boeing 757′s and 767′s that were crashed in to the twin towers, the Pentagon and the fourth one ended up crashed in a field had been trained on single engine airplanes in Florida, he knew this was an impossibility, because as an experienced pilot of 747′s, 757′s and 767′s as well as smaller aircraft, he was well aware of the aviation skills and training required to fly these highly technical commercial jets and perform as skillfully as these supposedly novice pilots had performed with training only on single engine planes!
So, he did a little investigating on his own and found that they had received only preliminary aviation training in Florida, but they later received more advanced training, the summer before 911, on 757′s and 767′s at a remote, secret airport in the desert of Arizona – located somewhere between Phoenix and Tuscon. This airport has 747′s,757′s and 767′s – along with smaller aircraft and helicopters. It is a CIA training and clandestine operating base/airport. Curiously, Blackwater was there, that summer, at the same time before 911 conducting training operations. Incidentally, they ended up getting a lucrative “no bid” contract in Iraq.
Several people from a nearby small town of Morana, Arizona called the FBI on several occasions and reported suspicious activity going on there with middle eastern men getting flight training. These reports were ignored/squelched by the FBI. Robert Mueller was appointed FBI Director one week before 911 by George W. Bush. Maybe the other FBI head wanted to check these suspicions out? So, he had to be replaced?
On a side note: Mueller is still the FBi Director and ignored warnings from the Russian government that the older Boston Marathon Bomber, Tamaran was being radicalized while visiting in a small Muslim country near Chechnya, where he was born. Mueller reportedly ignored that report and also failed to report that information to the Boston chief of police – so they could place a watch on Tamaran’s activities. We know the result – don’t we?
(2) There is evidence of foreknowledge of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack, because several powerful investment firms, including Scahill Investments, placed a record number of “put” (sell) orders against American Airlines and United Airlines stock, which just happened to be the two airlines that were used in the 911 attack. The highest number of Put Orders were on September 10th, 2001. Looks like “insider Trading” due to advice from those who had foreknowledge being passed on to their buddies?
(3) Senator Bob Graham (D) Florida wanted to investigate a Saudi Connection to 911, but was quickly shut up by Dick Cheney for “security reasons”. The reason he wanted to investigate: 15 of the 19 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia and they had no credible connection to Bin Laden. It was Prince Bandar bin Sultan of Saudi Arabia and a good friend to the Bush family, who was known to be interested in removing Saddam from power – one of which was because Iraq, being the second largest oil reserve of crude oil, was Saudi Arabia’s greatest competitor. Also, Saddam was turning on and off his oil to control the market, and the Saudis, as well as American oil companies, were defenseless against his manipulating the “oil futures” market.
The author found considerable funds flowed from Prince Bandar to the hijackers before 911 through a Saudi coordinator, who helped get the hijackers settled into apartments, supplied them with cash, and arranged their training in Florida and later – in Arizona. The author provides credible evidence that it was the Saudi’s who financed and mastermindned the entire operation – not Bin Laden and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), who was water boarded over a 180 times and confessed to anything and everything his torturers asked him to!
(4) I often wondered how Bin Laden could have pulled this off from a cave in Afghanistan and just how he was able to finance and coordinate the entire operation, but I was duped along with most into believing that he was the sole inspiration and main planner. This worked out well for the Saudis and The Bush Administration, using the corporate media as cheerleaders – especially Fox News, because Bin Laden was the perfect “fall guy”, since he had inspired and planned several other smaller terrorist attacks – including several embassy bombings and the USS Cole bombing. He had also made threats against the United States. I guess that’s the real reason why he was the perfect “fall guy” to blame the attack on.
The Saudis wanted Bin Laden killed because he had intentions of removing the Saudi Royalty from power and had disagreed with them about the U.S. Air Base in Saudi Arabia where the Muslim holy cities of Mecca and Medina are located.
(5) So, the author concluded – it was the Saudis who financed and planned the 911 attack with the cooperation of the Bush Administration, and it was Saudi Arabia that we did not invade! After all the planes were down and 48 hours after the Pentagon was hit, Prince Bandar, and his good friend George W. Bush were seen smoking cigars on the Truman Balcony of The White House – while smoke was visible to them – ascending from what remained of The Pentagon.
(6) There was never a “Shoot Down” order given until all four planes had hit their targets or crashed by 10:02 AM. The second plane UA 175, hit the south tower at 9:04 AM. Everybody knew by then – including the American people who saw it on television – that we were under attack. Two F 15′s had been in the air since 8:41 AM from Otis AFB – waiting for a “Shoot Down” order that could only come from The President of the United States – unless incapacitated/dead then, it could come from the Vice President. the last plane, UA 93 crashed in field near Shanksville at 10:02 AM. Over one and 1/2 hours went by after it was known that we were under terrorist attack using planes as missiles at 8:41 AM. The Shoot Down order was finally given at 10:14 AM to shoot down any more inbound planes – too late!
(7) There was several other incongruities of time lines which makes one question why a “shoot down” order was not given long before 10:14 AM – after all four planes were down. Airline Stewardess, Betty Org, on American Airlines 11, and a true hero, notified the FAA at 8:26 AM, by Air Phone that AA 11 had been hijacked. She relayed the seat numbers of the hijackers from her hidden location at the back of the plane. By 8:32 AM, The Command Center had already notified FAA that AA 11 had been hijacked. The North Tower was hit at 8:38 AM. By 8:41 AM, two F-15′s were on their way from nearby Otis AFB toward Manhattan – awaiting “shoot down” orders for the remaining three planes – that never came, though they were known to be hijacked by that time. At 8:55 AM, Condolezza Rice called George.W. Bush, who was waiting to go into a 2nd grade classroom in Florida and told him: “all we know is a twin engine plane has hit the North Tower of the World Trade Center”. That was either a blatant lie or pure incompetence, because by 8:21 AM, everyone in Security including The FAA,NORAD, and Defense Department had been notified that AA 11 had been hijacked! So, why didn’t Condoleezza Rice tell George W.Bush we were being attacked? George W. Bush strolled into the 2nd Grade classroom in Florida to listen to a practiced reading of “Pet Goat”!
Of course, after the second plane hit the South Tower at 9:04 AM, everyone – including the American people, who saw it on television, knew this was a terrorist attack! Still no “Shoot down” order which could have saved the Pentagon from being hit at 9:38 AM by AA 77 flying 530 MPH, three feet above the ground when it hit the west wall. This feat would have been difficult for an experienced pilot to accomplish, but piloted by a novice pilot, who had only been trained on single engine planes – no way!
Shortly after 9:04 AM, when the 2nd plane hit the South Tower, Chief of Staff, Andrew Card whispered in George W. Bush’s ear: “we are under attack”. George Bush just continued to sit there and listen to “Pet Goat”!
The truth is – even before the first plane hit the North Tower at 8:38 Am, it was known at 8:21 AM – that terrorists had hijacked at least one of our planes – AA 11! Yet, it wasn’t until 10:14 AM, after all the planes had hit their targets or AA 93 had crashed in a field near Shanksville, at 10:04 AM, that a shoot down order was finally given for any more incoming aircraft.
(8) The author estimated that 15 trillion dollars has been forever lost due directly or indirectly to 911 – considering the cost of two wars that ensued, overpaid contractors like “Blackwater”, Dick Cheney’s Halliburton, and other contractors, billions spent looking for and killing Bin Laden, (who was the “fall guy” in chief – along with the captured so called “Mastermind”, KSM). Then there was the huge cost of military supplies and medical care for crippled soldiers for the next 40 60 years! While 3,000 people died unnecessarily in the Twin Towers and at the Pentagon, 4,000 brave Americans died needlessly in Iraq, and over 100,000 Iraqis lost their lives. If Bin Laden was not involved another 2,000 American soldiers have needlessly died in Afghanistan, though getting and trying Bin Laden for other terrorist acts he had committed might have been worth that venture.
So why did we invade and occupy Iraq? Answer: So we could remove a dictator that was being uncooperative with the Saudis and American Oil companies and to establish a military base, gain control of the oil resources, and establish a Democracy – with the later intentions of invading Iran. Since a bellicose George W. Bush called them part of an “Axis of Evil” after they had offered to help us in Afghanistan, they knew they were next to be invaded! Of course, that’s the main reason Iran began developing Nuclear weapons – after the invasion of Iraq.
I realize there has been a lot of unnecessary spending since 911 and too many tax breaks for wealthy people, who have made no sacrifices and have done quite well since 911, but I don’t see why we can’t count that $15 trillion directly or indirectly against the almost $17 trillion debt we now owe on the national debt?
There were other possible facts that the author did not mention or perceive like: Super Thermite was likely added to the paint mix that was used to paint the metal beams of the twin towers sometime just before 911. That would explain how the metal beams, below where the planes hit, heated up enough to bend and allow both buildings to collapse. The author assumed the accumulated heat from the jet fuel burning heated the lower beams enough to bend them, but maybe he forgot that heat rises, and there were huge openings where the planes had hit that would have allowed the heat to escape. Therefore, most of the heat from jet fuel burning would not have accumulated enough to melt those lower level metal beams. Scientists have since tested that type and thickness metal burning jet fuel, and it did not heat the beams enough to bend them. Therefore, we can conclude heat from jet fuel has since been proven to not be enough to bend those beams. It would have risen and escaped – leaving the lower beams cool enough to remain intact. Super Thermite catches fire easily and burns plenty hot enough to bend those metal beams. Scientists did find traces of Super Thermite in the rubble of Building Seven. Some scientists requested and were denied access to the beams that were salvaged. Some of those metal support beams remain locked up, to this day, in a secure room, and no one has been given access to check those beams. Why not?
Still another incongruity/inconsistency that the author did not explore was whether or not Attorney General Ashcroft (and maybe others?) were advised, that morning, to not take a commercial plane home. It is rumored they were advised to take a military flight, instead. Why? As far as I can find out, these two questions were not explored in the 911 Commission report, either!
At the end of his book, the author suggested one way remains to find out the whole truth about 911: simply bring Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM) to New York and put him on civilian trial. The truth will have to come out that he and/or Osama Bin Laden were not capable nor wealthy enough to finance and coordinate such a venture. The finger will end up pointing where it belongs – the Bush Administration and The Saudis! Now, I guess we know the real reason why Bin Laden was killed instead of trying to capture him and bringing him to trial – huh? Shalom.
I don’t do “measurements,” so be aware of this when reading some of my recipes. Use your instincts! For your convenience however, I will give them when necessary but in this case, these are approximations that can be experimented with.
These amounts should serve 2 to 3 people
3 to 4 Organic Sweet Potatoes
Chopped Pecans or Sliced Almonds
Cultured, Unsalted (Organic or Pastured is best) Butter
You will need:
Glass baking dish (9×9)
Potato Masher or patience with a fork
Raw apple cider vinegar (ACV)
Rinse, then soak sweet potatoes (unpeeled) in a pot of water with a splash of ACV for a few minutes
Drain away the water, then refill the pot with filtered water. Bring to a boil, cover, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook until a fork will sink right into them.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Drain most of the water from the pot (leave a tiny bit for trace minerals and moisture) and allow them to cool for a few minutes. Then, with clean hands, peel the skins right off and discard them. Transfer the peeled potatoes to a glass baking dish and mash with your potato masher. Salt them moderately (do I really need to give you an exact amount?), add organic clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon (once again just a bit is fine; use your instincts). Mix this up a bit and top it off with the chopped nuts and dates (don’t forget to remove the pits!).
Stick this in the oven for about 20 minutes, just long enough to get it hot, then scoop it out and serve with generous pats of delicious cultured butter on top! Your children will love this and if you are “grain free,” (as you should be in this tare-ful world) you will need the carbs to prevent going into acidic ketosis.
It would be nice to go back to glass bottles/containers and then return them instead of trashing them like we do – these oil based, non biodegradable plastic bottles/containers that are now floating in a huge island whirlpool in the Pacific – bigger than the state of Texas! This oil based plastic leaches its dioxins/hormones into the water and poisons the fish making them infertile. Birds pick up pieces of it and feed it to their babies – killing them, of course! Sorry, I forgot: the “for profit” health care system wouldn’t make near as much money treating the cancers, arthritis, liver diseases, etc. from drinking from these poisonous oil based plastic containers – now, would they?
We could make bio degradable plastic out of hemp, which would not have dioxins and the hormone that mimics estrogen, but Heaven help us, that’s the same plant as Marijuana, which is less harmful or addictive than tobacco or alcohol – if used as a recreational drug by those over 18. Besides, lawyers and judges who get to defend, prosecute, and sentence these Americans exercising their right to choose what they put in their bodies, would also lose some of their high dollar income – huh?
Also, the pharmaceutical industry would have considerable competition from it as a better painkiller and appetite stimulant – with fewer or no side effects! Now, I’ll bet they would increase those campaign contributions to politicians to keep that terrible, sinful drug illegal – wouldn’t they? Likewise, the alcohol and tobacco industry, which kills more Americans from the body/brain killing destruction caused by the use of these two drugs than would ever come from the use of Marijuana, would suffer a substantial decrease in sales, because they would have considerable competition from “Joe Six pack”, who just might decide to switch to a less harmful and just as relaxing and enjoyable drug!
And we certainly must not forget the “for profit” prison industry, that makes most of its money from imprisoning non violent Marijuana users, who “get caught” exercising their right/freedom for the “pursuit of happiness“. Marijuana users often get longer sentences than violent criminals. Unbelievable!
Yes, after looking around at this corrupt, unjust, polluted world, you just have to conclude that this is certainly Satan’s world, and he is, indeed, the God of it!
Moldy Grains Are Killing Us (and could be making us kill each other)
I love YouTube. If you participate in that revolution of free information and have any subscribers, you may feel the same way. It is a community of the occasional trolls but many information sharing, freedom loving, caring individuals who try to help each other by spreading knowledge that is suppressed elsewhere. One of my subscribers, “Al Chemy,” after watching one of my videos on food allergy diagnoses directed me to another YouTube user, “TangeOrHeen,” who has some pretty interesting ideas about what is in our wheat; and I think he’s right.
One word: Ergot.
You’ve heard of it, I’m sure. It is the toxic fungus that may have caused the Salem witch trials, it is used to make LSD, and grows on rye. Well, it doesn’t just grow on rye. It can grow on any grain. Rye is more susceptible to it, along with genetically modified wheat which is 40 times more susceptible… I know what you’re thinking. “But I only eat wheat and GM wheat isn’t commercially sold.” Well, keep thinking that way and you may notice many of the symptoms of slowly increasing ergot poisoning festering up in your body.
GM wheat was discovered in grain shipments to Thailand in 1999, although no one knew how it got there. Do you trust Monsanto to keep their poison to themselves? Personally after being born with two dislocated hips because of my father’s Vietnam exposure to DDT four years prior to my conception, I don’t trust them at all! He wasn’t warned about exposure to that just as people who are ingesting GMO corn haven’t been warned about its connection with mammary tumors in rats.
How does it get into our grains?
If you are a spiritual or religious person, you may be familiar with the term, “separate the wheat from the tares.” What this bible passage is referring to can be interpreted on many levels. It can be referring to humans; separating the good from bad. But it can also refer to good farming practices. Tares are a species of rye that look almost identical to wheat. They grow up in the wheat fields undetected, unless the wheat is allowed to fully ripen before harvest. If allowed to fully ripen, the rye become obvious and it is easily left out. Why would the bible, which I believe is full of health wisdom tell us to do this? Perhaps it is because we shouldn’t eat the rye because of it’s tendency to be infected with the ergot fungus. How many farmers do you know nowadays that let anything fully ripen? Bananas are bright green in the grocery store with big labels on them that say, “gas,” because that is how crops are ripened in today’s big ag culture. How many farmers do you know who go out into their grain fields and harvest by hand? Machines don’t know the difference between rye and wheat. Machines cannot weed out the black pods growing on the grains that indicate ergot.
What happens once it’s in the grains?
Ergot becomes endo-phytic. Here comes the biblical references again. Remember that whole Old Testament curse of three to four generations for our sins? Well, as a believer in epi-genetics, I don’t think it’s a cruel punishment, but a scientific reality. It is now proven that our environment affects our gene expression, and gets passed on to our children. A woman’s state of mind during pregnancy literally determines what genes are turned on or off for her fetus. Plants have similar issues. This fungus gets into the genetic expression of the plants and would have to then be “circumcised,” out of the grains after three or four generations of harvesting properly, just as the Old Testament suggests. That means that even if there are no actual black ergot pods on the grains visible to the USDA inspectors, who set limits on ergot, the poison is still in the grain.
Wheat has also been hybridized, not genetically engineered, but hybridized for many generations to include much more gluten than it had in those bible days. Back then, it had about 5% gluten whereas now it has 55%. This fungus feeds on that, much like yeasts feed on sugar. We have increased the susceptibility of our grains to these problems and are no longer properly weeding them out. Perhaps farmers are spraying herbicides on the wheat, but we all know that will only increase herbicide resistance and the load of poison in the already toxic food.
I have gone back and forth on wheat and the “gluten free,” diet for a very long time. My stepfather has Celiac Sprue and so I was raised being very aware of what was in my food, including how to check for ingredients and how to make food without wheat. We often ate “gluten free” meals like steamed vegetables, meat, and potatoes. Dairy was never considered a problem; nor was corn.
The research back then was non-existent. My stepfather was lucky he even got properly diagnosed. He had sores all over his body for years and was told by the military doctors that he was dirty; that he had scabies and needed to take more showers. He would wake up bleeding all over his sheets because he would scratch the sores, known as Dermatitis Herpetiformis, in his sleep. It was torture, until luckily he got stationed in Korea, where an Eastern born M.D. told him, “You have those sores in your intestines also,” and explained to him what Celiac disease was.
That was the beginning of a big difference in his life. No longer was he tortured by agonizing sores. He gave up wheat cold turkey. He scoffed at those who didn’t have the will power to do so, and took steroids instead. His sores went away and he only got a few on his hands now and then when wheat snuck into his food. And believe me, he soon became fully aware of just how often wheat could sneak in.
That was all before he met my mother. By the time they met, fell in love, and got married, he didn’t eat wheat at all. Now, when I look back on what we did eat, along with my knowledge of recent research and how foods are made, I realize why, although his sores mostly went away, he never fully healed inside. He never had a healthy digestive tract and now he is struggling with Alzheimer’s disease.
There is a man named Dr. Osbourne who is revolutionizing “gluten free.” It is no longer a trend. It is a science; and if you are gluten sensitive, allergic to any foods at all, or have Celiac Sprue, I urge you to go to his website, Gluten Free Society and learn what foods “gluten,” is really in. He proves that it is in all grains. Yes, all grains. Even those that are supposedly, “gluten free.” See, “gluten,” is a general term for the proteins in grains. The correct term for the protein in wheat specifically is “gliadin.”
Recent research has even shown that corn damages the lining of the intestines just as much as wheat in those with Celiac Sprue. Dr. Osbourne’s explanation takes care of that. It is because all grains have gluten. Below is one video by Dr. Osbourne, but please check out my playlist with much more info at: True Gluten Free
If you have had a food allergy panel blood test, like me, and “wheat,” showed up on it, then you are sensitive to gliadin. That does not mean you have Celiac Sprue. On my blood test, many other foods also showed up; foods that I can now eat without a hitch, since I have given up the grains. Later on, I got the Celiac genetic test and it showed up negative. That is where things went down hill for me, and Dr. Osbourne knows why.
The problem with the Celiac Sprue genetic test that is offered by labs, is that they only test for 2 markers of the HLA-DQ gene. They will look for those two (I believe it is 2 and 8) and if those markers aren’t there, they simply deliver a “negative,” result to your doctor. What Dr. Osbourne has found and talks about on his website is that there are other HLA-DQ markers that can be tested for. These may not indicate a classic “Celiac Sprue,” but do indicate gluten intolerance. Remember, “gluten,” is in all grains.
I went on to the scratch test from there. I wanted to know what was causing my intestines to be so leaky that so many food proteins were getting into my blood. See, I have a pre-medical Exercise Science degree (basically Physiology) with the pre-requisites to study for a M.S. in Nutrition and so I know that those antibodies that the blood test looked for wouldn’t be there unless large food proteins were passing through my digestive tract without being properly broken down. What was causing my villi to be flattened, letting these proteins sneak through, much like a Celiac sufferer?
The scratch test was only for ten foods, but only one food showed up; corn. Wheat didn’t show up, ironically, even though it had shown up in my blood test. You see, the scratch test looks for different types of antibodies than a blood test. Our immune systems make many different types of immunoglobulins. There are IgG, IgA, IgE, and more! Each type of test looks for a different type of immunoglobulin, and each immunoglobulin works in a specific way. The scratch test looks for IgE, which is a more immediate reaction. This is the reaction that can cause anaphylactic shock, hives, etc. Corn does that to me. Luckily it wasn’t at a dangerously high level yet; but enough to cause a welt. No wonder I was always feeling my skin crawl; itching every night! I used to eat organic corn chips and salsa almost every evening for an after dinner snack!
After this scratch test, I told myself that corn was all I had to ignore. I didn’t know about Dr. Osbourne’s research. I started eating wheat again and noticed that I would always break out with acne on my chin after doing so. I used to have nodular acne as a teen and did not want that to return so I avoided whole grains and only ate white bread, occasionally, around wraps or burritos. That would give me less, smaller acne, but still on my chin. Acne on your chin (if you are a woman especially) is a sign of hormonal imbalance. Those glutens were wreaking havoc on my reproductive system! Once they get into your bloodstream they will cause problems wherever they land; including your liver, which is supposed to store many nutrients. No wonder I had two miscarriages and later found out that I was low in Zinc and B12.
How could I be so stupid to think that I could eat white bread and not whole grains? Well, it is because I was confusing phytates with gluten. The phytates are more numerous on whole grains, unless they are soaked and sprouted away, but so are the glutens! Phytates may decrease mineral absorption and cause gas, but they don’t cause auto-immune reactions. This is where I went wrong. The reason white bread gave me less of a reaction is only because there was less gluten after all of the unhealthy processing; phytates or not.
My health declined after that negative Celiac test and my return to eating wheat. I started to actually get a little fat around my mid-section, which was not a norm for me. I have always been thin. But of course, that is probably because I wasn’t absorbing nutrients. I always had a large appetite but didn’t gain weight. My digestion improved slightly after stopping the corn. I was able to tolerate spicy foods for the first time, and the inflammation (those welts inside of me that matched the ones from the scratch test) decreased but did not fully go away.
Who wants to have an inflamed gut all the time? Digestive problems, food intolerance, and inflammation of the gut are also linked to mental illness. Depression, anxiety, even schizophrenia are directly linked to the gut (read, “Second Brain” from Amazon.com linked below) and they all run in my family. I have struggled with depression, anxiety, and symptoms of Bipolar disorder for a very, very long time. For as far back as I can remember. What if it is simply that I am eating the wrong foods for my genes? What if those foods are triggering reactions in many more people than we think because of the way we are cultivating them? (more articles on this to come.)
I noticed that if I ate whole grains, I would become an emotional wreck. This was on top of the acne breakouts, miscarriages, lack of nutrient absorption (despite eating whole, organic foods) and shortened menstrual cycles. Whole wheat was just not an option for me, but I didn’t understand why after my misleading medical diagnoses. That is, until I met TangeOrHeen. He is the one who opened my eyes about why so many of us are now gluten intolerant, which led to my discovery of Dr. Osbourne…(click here for part 2, Moldy Grains are Killing Us)
