Most Astonishing Health Disaster of the 20th Century



The Ezekiel Diet Files

I'm re-posting this short video in memory of my mother who was slowly murdered by medical error and adverse drug reactions. She placed her complete faith and trust in a corrupt medical system that took her life for profit. Many from that generation completely trusted these rat-bastards and paid the ultimate price. She died a slow tortured death over several months as she wasted away confined to a hospital bed. She tried to commit suicide twice in the middle of the night by breaking her reading glasses to slit her wrist.

When her million dollar policy was used up they let her choose a morphine drip suicide, they even screwed that up, as she burst back to life just before she died. It seemed like everyone  just walked away saying "oh well, they did the best they could, poor thing." I came away from this experience with this quiet rage that drives me to keep posting on this blog to anyone who'll listen.

By helping you avoid this same fate I negatively affect their profits. Almost 10,000 people have downloaded my diet here. If only 2,000 of them use the information to get healthy and avoid just a million dollar medical early demise, I've already cost them over two billion dollars. And I'm not done yet.

Naringenin in Grapefruit Accelerates Weight Loss

A compound found in grapefruit called naringenin actually triggers the liver to break down fat similar to the fasting process without dieting.

Bottom line: there's extremely sweet breaking news about a compound hidden in the tangy flavor of grapefruits that may treat diabetes naturally and also bring some of the benefits of low carb dieting to the body, too -- without dieting. Scientists from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), have discovered that naringenin, an antioxidant derived from the bitter flavor of grapefruits and other citrus fruits, triggers the liver to break down fat.

While the function of the pancreas is important to diabetics, the liver is the main organ responsible for the regulation of carbohydrates and blood levels of fat. After a meal, the blood is flushed with sugars, which activate LXR-alpha, a PPAR associated with inflammation. This triggers the liver to create fatty acids for long-term storage. But during periods of fasting (and low carb dieting) the process is reversed, fat cells release fatty acids and break them down to ketones. There's an increased sensitivity to insulin, too. The new research, just published in the online journal PLoS ONE, shows that naringenin activates two kinds of PPARs (dubbed PPAR-alpha and PPARy) and blocks LXR-alpha -- resulting in fasting-type benefits to the body.

"It is a process which is similar to the Atkins diet, without many of the side effects," Martin L. Yarmush, MD, PhD, director of the MGH Center for Engineering in Medicine and one of the paper's authors, said in a media statement. "The liver behaves as if fasting, breaking down fatty acids instead of carbohydrates."

"It is a fascinating find," Yaakov Nahmias, PhD, the paper's senior author said in the press statement. He pointed out that the results of the research were what the pharmaceutical industry has long been seeking through drug research.

"But their (drug) development was plagued by safety concerns. Remarkably, naringenin is a dietary supplement with a clear safety record. Evidence suggests it might actually protect the liver from damage," Dr. Nahmias added. If the results of the new study hold up in human patients, the research team believes the grapefruit compound could become a treatment for high cholesterol, type-2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.

Grapefruit Slices

To cut a grapefruit like the one pictured above...slice the skin (about 3/4") off the top and bottom of the grapefruit. Stand the grapefruit on one cut end and run the knife down the core/pulp center to create two halves. Lay on round side and trim the center core pulp piece out with a v cut. Then slice in 1/2" to 1" slices. It takes less than a minute to cut a grapefruit like this.

Experience

I discovered this grapefruit trick on a one week cruise, where I fully intended to gain 5 to 10 pounds. I love grapefruit and on the Lido Deck salad bar they had this huge bowl of grapefruit filleted out into individual pieces (which is a lot of work to prepare this way). I scooped out and ate a couple large bowls of that grapefruit a day. I stayed away from most carbs and bread, but not the desserts. I got back home and was shocked to weigh exactly what I did when I left. I attributed that to all that grapefruit, plus additional activity. Here's a cruise tip, book a cabin on the other end of the ship from the dining room, and use the stairs.

I also ate at least one, and normally two grapefruits a day while losing that 100 pounds in 150 days. I still eat grapefruit every day. It's been over 3.5 years since I lost that weight, and I've kept it off. I attribute some of that success to grapefruit. I never get tired of grapefruit. Personally, I'm staying away from California grapefruit (and strawberries) and only buying Florida and Texas gf.

Key Point & Secret – A compound found in grapefruit will accelerate the weight loss process by creating fasting-type benefits to the body similar to the Atkin’s diet. Eat at least one or two grapefruits a day to accelerate the weight loss process.

The second best advice I ever received


 
The Ezekiel Diet Files

When I was in my mid twenties the company I was working for sent all the top management and sales people to a personal management seminar that lasted several days.
 
During that seminar a sheet of paper was handed out to everyone with the pie graph you see above. We were told these are the eight major areas of your life, and we were asked to rate ourselves in all eight areas with a dot at 1, or near the center of the pie graph meaning I wasn't doing anything to improve that area of my life, and a dot at ten represented an area of my life where I had everything going well.
 
No one else would ever see the results, so we were asked to be honest. Rating myself was relatively easy as I had spent all my time and effort in two areas, Money (or the pursuit of it) and Career (as a workaholic).
 
Then we were asked to connect the dots.  So I connected the dots, and my dot connecting exercise looked like a flounder, turned sideways on the flat side.
 
Then the instructor asks: "How smoothly is your life rolling along? You see this is the Wheel of Life.......and to be happy, balanced, and lead a productive life you have to constantly work at balancing these major areas of your life."
 
I looked back down at that pie graph and for the first time in my life I saw the core problem that had already wrecked my life, even at that early age. My first response was anger as I thought, I've been on this damn planet for almost 25 years and this is the first time anyone thought this was important enough to share?
 
Then the instructor says, before you come back tomorrow I want you to address every one of these areas of your life with at least one goal.
 
That's been almost 30 years ago. Today I do that instinctively and no longer need to write it down.
 
One thing it did for me at a young age was force me to address the Spiritual part of my life. I set a goal to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ in that area. Within weeks things started happening that I initially thought could only be coincidence. Until coincident after coincident after coincident became something I could no longer dismiss.
 
That Wheel of Life pie chart is in large part the beginning of who I am today.
 
I would challenge you to right click and save this graph to your computer, open Word and insert this image and enlarge it and print a copy for yourself. Or save the image, print it and take it to a copier and enlarge it to an 8.5 X 11 sheet of paper and do this exercise yourself.
 
What I'm doing here on this blog also comes from my need to do something or give back to the Community. Anything this blog and this Ezekiel Diet system has done to help you was born in that classroom 30 years ago with this Wheel of Life pie graph, and other circumstances of my life.

The Pitfalls of the Wheel of Life You Have To Consider



The Ezekiel Diet Files

In the last post I wrote about the Wheel of Life and how important this simple concept was in changing my life slowly, but radically.

The basic concept is the 8 areas of Life need to be balanced to be happy and healthy. For example, you don't want to spend your entire life in pursuit of fortune only to be the richest person in the cemetery, with many regrets. That's the basics. Address all 8 areas and try to bring as much balance as possible. Then your life rolls along smoothly, hence...the Wheel of Life.

There's a big problem with this concept, that I've lived. That's what this post is about.

As succinctly as possible, here's the problem....if you're married and only one of you is applying this Wheel of Life goal setting exercise and the other isn't, you'll leave your spouse behind, exactly where they were when you met them. You plod along, even very slowly and continue to grow in these 8 areas, eventually it'll cause problems in the relationship as your nature's become dissimilar.

From Tony Robbins seminar on the Power of Relationships, Day 3 - 3:47 (paraphrased)

"For a relationship to last, both partners have to share similar natures, or natures that complement each other. If you have a partner whose goals are radically different than your own, then you'll have continuous conflict.

Two people with radically different natures will be in constant conflict causing resistance, resentment, and if you stay together.....repression. "

I can tell you from almost 30 years of experience, and many regrets, that if you apply the Wheel of Life goal-setting and life-balancing principles, and your spouse does not, it will destroy your marriage covenant over the course of a decade or two.

Here's an example, if one partner sets goals in the Spiritually area of their life, and the other doesn't. There will be friction.  If both of you started out enjoying smoke filled happy hour with pitchers of beer all over the table, and one of you grows past that, and the other doesn't. You have a problem, because your nature has changed.

Another example, you're growing in the area of "Health" as you discover from years of research that the food and water supply have been intentionally spiked with numerous health destroying chemicals. Your whole paradigm about food and health changes, but your spouse and friends just roll their eyes and choose to ignore it, you'll be the "health nut" and it'll cause friction.

Another example, you're growing in the area of "Personal Growth" as you discover, from years of research, the 'big picture' dynamics of who the "Owners" of this planet are, how they're intentionally and incrementally destroying this country, and how they intend to eventually merge this country into a global government, with a single religion. By the way, that scenario lines up perfectly with last day Biblical prophecy. And your spouse doesn't care, and wants to continue 'living large in the matrix'. You'll be a "conspiracy nut" to everyone around you as most people choose to remain willfully ignorant and try to pretend it isn't happening.

Now you've morphed into a "double nut", health and conspiracy, and your spouse hasn't, or won't.

So the Wheel of Life can destroy a relationship if you plod along, even very slowly, beyond everyone around you. Your natures will change and you'll become unequally yoked.

I've spent a lot of time pondering this problem.

Economic Armageddon and You - Are you ready?

The Ezekiel Diet Files
December 20, 2014

Watch these 4 short video's in order, (14 minutes total). It could lead to your own "ah ha, this makes sense" moment. I agree with Mark Levin's assessment.

This is just another reason to lose some weight, get off prescription drugs, and get healthy fast.

This first video was released in 2011, so add 2 or 3 trillion dollars to the $14 trillion reported.



Mark Levin on why DHS is Buying Up All the Bullets!


Remember, the D H S only has jurisdiction in the United States. And regarding hollow point rounds Wikipedia tells us...."A hollow-point bullet is an expanding bullet that has a pit or hollowed out shape in its tip often intended to cause the bullet to expand upon entering a target in order to decrease penetration and disrupt more tissue as it travels through the target."  We know the D H S has made purchase order acquisitions for $1.6+ billion rounds, or approximately 5 rounds for every man woman and child in the United States.

Maybe the owners are arming against us because they're concerned the subjects are waking up too fast?  They're obviously concerned that the pitchforks are about to come out en-mass. Or, is it possible they're trying to provoke this exact outcome? I think that's possible. The American people don't seem to be too bothered by all the lawlessness. It kind of indicates they're consuming too many neuro-excito-toxins and excessive fluoride in the water supply.  Too medicated to be provoked. But, I'm sure an economic collapse and hunger will probably provoke them sufficiently.

Ants are the 99%



If this is the case, the following trailer might give us a glimpse at how all that firepower may be used? If so, God help us.

GRAY STATE Official Concept Trailer #1




Here's wisdom.......we live in perilous times, the media has the population lulled into a consumption coma, the food and water supply have them sick and lethargic, and it appears danger is just ahead. The wise person will get out of the way of this madness, but that includes seeking refuge in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit first, because "something evil this way comes".....

Proverbs 27:12

New International Version
The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty.

New Living Translation
A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.

English Standard Version
The prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it.

New American Standard Bible
A prudent man sees evil and hides himself, The naive proceed and pay the penalty.

King James Bible
A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished.

Obama Increases Allowable Levels of Radiation in Drinking Water ‘Dramatically’



by Christina Sarich
Posted on December 18, 2014

A Japanese government official has reported, “I was overwhelmed by the amount of contaminated water coming from the reactors, we must dump it in the ocean.” This isn’t such great news for the US since President Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently gave their approval for “dramatically raising permissible radioactive levels in drinking water and soil following “radiological incidents,” such as nuclear power-plant accidents and dirty bombs.”

The Nuclear Industry calls this their “new normal,” according to Public
Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER).

The EPA has issued radiation guides called Protective Action Guides or PAGs which allows more radiation than any American has ever been exposed to. Within the guides, are instructions for evacuations, shelter-in-place orders, food restrictions and other actions following a wide range of “radiological emergencies.”

Wouldn’t the massive break down of reactor number one at Fukushima be considered a ‘radiological emergency?”

Shunichi Tanaka, the chairman of the Nuclear Regulation Authority, made the comment Dec. 12 about dumping radioactive waste into the ocean.

The US governments PAGs allow long-term public exposure to radiation in amounts as high as 2,000 millirems. This would, in effect, increase a longstanding 1 in 10,000 person cancer rate to a rate of 1 in 23 persons exposed over a 30-year period. Many experts are expecting elevated cancer rates due to these “allowable” levels of radiation exposure.

The PAGs are the work of Gina McCarthy, the assistant administrator for air and radiation whose nomination to serve as EPA Administrator was only approved by the Senate a few months ago.

It is suggested that these PAGs have been in the works for over two years and are just recently available for public view.

PEER Executive Director Jeff Ruch said:

    “This is a public health policy only Dr. Strangelove could embrace. If this typifies the environmental leadership we can expect from Ms. McCarthy, then [the] EPA is in for a long, dirty slog.”

     “No compelling justification is offered for increasing the cancer deaths of Americans innocently exposed to corporate miscalculations several hundred-fold.”

6 simple steps to health that you can start now

(NaturalNews) We are quickly approaching New Year's Day and the annual accounting that accompanies it. Did you keep your New Year's resolutions last year? The year before?

Most of the time, resolutions focus on health issues.
  • I will lose weight.
  • I will get healthy.
  • I will completely change the way I eat.

Within weeks we give up, defeated.

If you're not healthy, if you continue to say to yourself, "I wish I could eat like that or I will I could take care of myself that well," then do it. If the change is radical, approach it with a project plan - one step at a time.

Step one

One of the reasons change is hard is because it usually starts with taking away something. Instead, start the other way around. Every day, drink a smoothie. It doesn't matter if you have it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a snack. Just drink a nutrient dense smoothie. There are two important ingredients: a high quality nutrition powder and, depending on the diet, a balanced oil supplement. In a blender, start with fresh or frozen fruit, cover with juice (not always necessary when using fresh fruit), add two tablespoons of nutrition powder, a tablespoon of flaxseed oil or an omega oil blend, and as much kale or spinach or other greens you can handle.

Step two

Your enthusiasm for this project will grow as each step makes a significant difference in the way you feel. Step two is to eat a large salad every day. No, I am not talking about a bowl of lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumbers. I am talking about an incredibly nutritious salad filled with lots of raw veggies. Make it with at least 12 different vegetables, and throw in some herbs and seeds as well. Be sure to add fresh garlic, turmeric, and pepper for synergistic health benefits. Make it big and munch on it all day if you can't finish it in one sitting. You might find it easier to make a bunch of this salad twice a week.

Step three

Between your daily smoothie and your daily salad, you are going to be feeling so much better. Your body is getting the nutrition it needs to repair damage and to thrive on a cellular level. Now that you are feeling better, are you ready to feel a whole lot better? If it's time, move on to step three. Clean out your kitchen. Get rid of all the crappy processed food filled with artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, MSG, high fructose corn syrup, GMOs, trans fats, and other disgusting chemicals.

You want to eat whole foods, real foods, organic foods. But while we're taking something away, let's add something else. One of the most amazing things you can do for your body is to take up drinking a gallon of cranberry stevia lemonade a day. Drink it throughout the day.

Step four

Increase the amount of raw foods you eat. Aim for 80% raw - more vegetables than fruit.

Step five

It's time to detox, and balance the gut's eco-system (though the aforementioned salads have made a huge difference already). True health is achieved by providing the body with the nutrition it needs and ridding it of the parasites, yeast, heavy metals, chemicals, and other garbage that doesn't belong.

You have the choice to take each of these steps fast or slow. The point is, be sure each step is ingrained before moving on. If it takes you a month per step, in six months you will be eating the healthiest diet possible. If it takes you two months per step, it will take a year. But if it does, a year from now you will have totally changed your health.

Step six

Do squats. Start with a few, and do a few more every day. Get up to 100 every day. Take your time, and work your way up.

See Cheap and Easy Detox
for the lemonade recipe and for a good detox protocol. For a recipe to
make your own nutrition powder filled with vitamins and minerals check Make Your Own Homemade Nutrition Formula.

Be sure to see the first link for more on diet and a great salad recipe.

Can you imagine making such a radical change and how it will impact your life? If you can imagine it, you can do it. Just start with step one.

Are you ready? Cascading global financial collapse now a very real risk as Russia heads for default




(NaturalNews) Russia is teetering on the edge of solvency and economic collapse as its currency collapses, interest rates rise and average Russians flock to stores to stock on up on anything they can get their hands on.

Meanwhile, some geopolitical analysts believe that the economic turmoil -- touched off in part by Western sanctions in response to Moscow's "annexation" of Crimea and suspected military involvement in Ukraine, and in part due to slumping oil prices -- could put Russian President Vladimir Putin in a position where he may use aggression to distract his people from their plight.

As reported by The Associated Press (AP), the sudden financial crisis in Russia has risks of spilling over into other countries and could serve to damage other parts of the global economy.

As the AP noted:

With economies in Europe, Japan, China and Latin America already ailing, fresh threats have emerged from Russia's shriveled currency, its move to dramatically boost interest rates, the damage from plummeting oil prices and Western sanctions over Russia's action in Ukraine.

To the latter point -- sanctions -- President Obama was set to sign a bill leveling new sanctions against Moscow this week, a move that would trigger some kind of response by Russia, according to what Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said last week.

The new sanctions are aimed at Russian weapons makers and investors in Russia's high-tech oil projects.

New sanctions, further monetary degradation, and geopolitical risk

"We will not be able to leave that without an answer," Ryabkov told Russia's Interfax news agency, as reported by CNBC.

The AP noted that Russia's currency, the ruble, dropped some 10 percent in value over a two-day period recently, which has only served to worsen the country's economic position. Investors now fear that there could be Russian default on foreign debt obligations, which would then project hundreds of billions in losses on lenders around the world.

In addition, the AP reported, some analysts are worried that renewed economic tensions could further cause a deterioration in relations between Moscow and Washington, as well as between Moscow and European capitals, especially if new sanctions are imposed. Obama has committed to the new sanctions, the AP reported.

Not many believe that Putin will back down as a result of U.S. pressure, however.

"I do not expect him to blink," Ian Bremmer, president of the Eurasia Group, a political risk and consulting firm, told the AP.

Any financial consequences for the United States would be relatively minor due to Russia's diminished economic status. But again, any economic calamity in the East European giant could have widespread geopolitical implications.

Jake Novak, writing for CNBC, argued that, because Putin is neither a good man nor a good leader, geopolitical risk is a very real concern.

"This would be something worthy of extreme vigilance for the U.S. government and investors alike even if Russia were a true democracy governed by at least semi-responsible leaders," he wrote. "But it's worse. Much worse."

"He's not known for holding back"

He continued:

Vladimir Putin has always been a lot more like a petty Latin American dictator than a statesman. Think about it: He made his bones in the secret police, consolidated his power with a ring of super wealthy backers, and he claps political opponents in jail at a moment's notice.

In short, Putin is like a Augusto Pinochet or a Juan Peron ... but with much more steely resolve, a massive military, and nuclear bombs.


Novak argues that, even with Putin's record of behavior there for all to see and recall, he doesn't believe that the Obama Administration or the investment community is prepared for all the damage Putin can unleash on his own people, his neighbors and on the U.S. financial markets.

"There is nothing more dangerous than a wounded animal," he observed. "Vladimir Putin is wounded -- and he's not known for holding back."
