Organic Foods – What’s it all about?

What organic means to me is if I am buying an apple, I am guaranteed that I am buying an apple and not a chemical cocktail of herbicides, pesticides, fungicides and now whether it is genetically modified foods made in some Frankenstein lab, injected with round up or god only knows what. To me it is a trust factor of not being mislead.

Diet seems to be one of the biggest root to illness. If you would like to understand our evolution of human diet Loren Cordain’s Origins and Evolutions of the Western Diet: Health Implications for the 21st Century is worth the time to view. It is long 1 hour, 12 minutes and 45 seconds but worth the time for better understanding.

Heart Health

You hear in the news and on the commercials that heart disease is the #1 killer among women now. Why is it we are dying from heart disease and what can we do about it?

Do you really think that becel margarine is the answer? Margarine isn’t a real food, it is man made not natural. They say you can put in in the yard or in your garage and the mice or animals won’t even eat it. I read that it is one of the closest food to plastic we can get. Then there is the pink ribbon campaigns to help end heart disease. Can we really find the answer in another pill that most research money is going into?

I think the answer lies in what we put in our mouths. Vitamin C for instance is a heart protector that we don’t hear much about. The recommended daily allowance is so low it might keep us from getting scurvy but is it going to help with heart health? I don’t thinks so. There are so many things that deplete it and it is one vitamin that we have to keep replenishing in our bodies daily to keep us nutritionally healthy.

I think we are eating way too much of the wrong kind of fats, lack of nutrition from the right kinds of foods and stress. This world is full of stress and we need to slow down and start thinking about our health. After all if you don’t, no one is going to do it for you.

Fibro Stomach Pain and Food

If you suffer from digestive upset such as pain, acid reflex, diarrhea or constipation why don’t you look at your diet first. It could be a certain food you are eating that you could eliminate rather than take pills or laxatives. When it comes to Fibromyalgia, there are multi things going on and one of them will be a food intolerance of some sort if you are suffering from symptoms. We are what we eat.

A lot of people don’t realize that health and mood has anything to do with what we put into our mouths. It is by far the most important thing that you can do is to identify what you are eating with your symptoms. We all need to eat a balanced, healthful meal that is suited for our unique body and blood type. We are all different and our needs and reactions to foods are all unique. You need to identify your unique formula to digestive health, there isn’t one formula that works for everyone, if it did, we would all be identical. There is however some simple rules that everyone could follow

When I was first diagnosed with Fibromyalgia I didn’t realize that the stomach pains I suffered from were related to the wheat and dairy I ate. I was taught in school that they were healthy for you. Now that I have experienced the symptoms with consuming certain food I can tell you, it can be detrimental to your health.

I was diagnosed with neuropathy (nerve pain) and carpal tunnel, given prescriptions for it when in reality it was the wheat I was eating. I knew I was celiac but I didn’t realize it was hidden in a lot of foods I was still consuming. A dietician told me I could eat spelt and kamut flour when it is actually full of gluten too. I was at a point that my hands hurt so bad and my feet hurt to walk on them and here it was all from wheat.

Flour can give such a wide variety of symptoms, it is never really considered as a culprit. Think about it, gluten. Glue to your insides. Remember in school, they
made glue out of white flour and water. If you have chronic gut aches, diarrhea or constipation, consider wheat as a culprit. 

Some hidden sources  are:

  • yogurt with fruit

  • ketchup

  • lunch meats

  • cheese spreads

  • salad dressings

  • canned soups

  • soy sauce

  • Worcestershire sauce

  • prepared foods

  • corn chips

  • candy and even licorice. 

Other sources not so obvious

  • distilled white vinegar

  • hydrolyzed vegetable protein

  • malt or malt flavouring

  • modified starch or modified food starch

  • monoglyceride and diglycerides

  • products that list “natural” or “artificial” flavorings”

  • red or yellow food dyes

  • vegetable gum or vegetable protein

Milk is the next culprit to look at.

Lets look at some staple food that are overlooked as to how healthy they really are and should be in everyone’s diet:

Onions

In the Doctors book of food remedies it says onions can help

  • raise beneficial HDL cholesterol

  • lowers blood pressure

  • decrease the risk of cancer

  • relieve congestion

  • reduce inflammation

Some onions are so sweet too. Eat them raw, add them to salads, add them to
everything you cook with. They say onions and other members of the allium family such as leeks, shallots and scallions contain dozens of compounds that provide protection from other conditions including cancer, high blood pressure, heart disease, high cholesterol and asthma.

Celery

Can help:

  • reduce high blood pressure

  • lower risk of cancer

  • insoluble fiber

  • essential nutrients including potassium, vitamin C and calcium


Interesting facts: The ancient Romans, notorious party animals wore wreaths of
celery to protect the from hangovers which may explain the practice of celery
sticks in Bloody Mary’s.

Carrots

Can help:

  • improve night vision

  • reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease

  • prevent certain cancers

  • lower cholesterol

  • prevent heart attacks

Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, an antioxidant compound that fights free radicals that even contributes to aging.

Apples

Can help:

  • lower the risk of heart disease

  • prevent constipation

  • control diabetes

  • prevent cancer

Most of the healing power of apples are in the skin which contain about 4 milligrams of a compound called quercetin.

Berries

Can help:

  • prevent cataracts

  • ward off cancer

  • prevent constipation

  • reduce the risk of infection

Berries contain a compound called ellagic acid which is believed to help prevent
cellular changes that lead to cancer. Strawberries and black berries having the
most.

Broccoli

King of crucifers

Can help:

  • protect against heart disease

  • fight off cancer

  • boost immunity

  • osteoporosis

Broccoli contains not just one but two separate compounds

  • indole-3-carbinol (or I3C, for short)

  • sulforaphane – that help sweep up cancer causing substances before they have a chance to do harm

  • beta-carotene

  • vitamin c

  • calcium

  • folate (normal tissue growth)

  • fiber

My gynaecologist put me on indole-3-carbinol to clear up my cysts and as a breast cancer prevention. 

See how food can help us heal.

Now of course, this is for non genetically modified foods!
