Are You Sabotaging Your Metabolism?


By Dylan Schenk
October 24, 2014 8:45 AM EDT

Weight loss is an interesting thing. It seems like it would be as simple as calories in versus calories out: Eat too many calories and gain weight. Eat fewer calories and lose weight. It's a simple mathematical equation ... except that it's not.

Four years ago, I ate whatever I wanted and exercised moderately. I wasn't in my best shape, but my body fat percentage was average, about 21%. Then, when I was pregnant with my daughter, I gained 50 pounds and upon giving birth, had an urgency to lose the weight and get back into my fitness spandex.

I saw a hormone specialist who recommended eating a diet of zero starches, zero fat, zero sugar (including fruit) and approximately 1,000 calories per day. I was eating lean protein such as egg whites or chicken paired with vegetables, and I was also doing high-intensity workouts nearly every day. I was back to my pre-baby weight in about nine months, but I was essentially on a bikini competitor's diet and exercise program the entire time, while actual bikini competitors typically do this for three to six weeks before a competition.

Well, then I got pregnant with baby #2 and gained 60 pounds. The day my son was born, I was back on my doctor-prescribed diet.

It sort-of worked, but it took longer and I had to eat even fewer calories than before to see results. I experimented with many food/exercise/calorie combinations and found that the only way for me to lose weight was to be eat less than 1,000 calories per day! All I could think of is that before I got pregnant, I could basically eat whatever I wanted and maintain a decent and healthy physique. Something was wrong.

Ten months later, I still had not achieved my pre-baby body and I was very cranky from always being hungry!

So I started taking notes. I noticed that if I overate one day, I would gain a few pounds immediately. If I overate for two or three days in a row, I would slowly lose those three pounds I'd gained. It didn't make sense, so I started researching bikini competitors and their diets, and found that many of them suffer from serious metabolism issues after competitions.

I found that they experienced many of the same issues I had: fast weight gain when consuming a normal amount of calories, stomach bloat, digestion issues, etc. What I discovered was that I needed to rebuild my metabolism.

It's been a slow and agonizing process, but I'm finally getting my metabolism back to normal. After all of my nutrition training, exercise knowledge, experience working in fitness and my many, many certifications, I had never come across anything like this. It's embarrassing to admit, but I went against everything I knew about health and wellness to achieve fast weight loss.

So, how do you know if you've damaged your metabolism?

  • You're constantly on a calorie-restrictive diet.
  • You've completely eliminated a specific macronutrient group from your diet, such as carbs or fat.
  • You can't eat at your full calorie capacity without gaining weight.

If any of these apply to you, it's time to start rebuilding and repairing your metabolism. The first step is to find your calorie capacity: To maintain your current weight, you should be able to consume your body weight in calories multiplied by 15. So if you weigh 130 pounds, multiply that by 15 and your ideal daily calorie intake is 1,950.

Remember that it's important to consume a balanced diet of all three macronutrients: carbs, fats and protein. Our bodies need all of these macronutrients to function. Eliminating one causes not only hormonal imbalances, but also the inability to lose weight

To keep your metabolism firing all day long, eat healthful and well-balanced meals, never eliminate a food group and eat at consistent times throughout the day. Cutting calories won't work for long-term weight loss or overall health, and it could actually prevent you from losing weight in the long term.

I hope this saves you years of agony as I wish someone would have told me about this sooner!

Solar Storm 14 Times Larger Than Earth Could Unleash A Society-Crippling Electromagnetic Pulse



Michael Snyder
Activist Post

Did you know that a storm 14 times larger than the Earth is happening on the sun right now?  Earlier this week, it unleashed a flare which was a million times more powerful than all of the nuclear weapons in existence combined. Fortunately, that flare was not directed at us. But now the area of the sun where this solar storm is located is rotating toward Earth. An eruption on the sun at just the right time and at just the right angle could result in a society-crippling electromagnetic pulse blasting this planet. So if your computers, cell phones and electronic equipment get fried at some point over the next few weeks, you will know what is probably to blame. Such an electromagnetic pulse has hit our planet before, and as you will read about below, some very prominent voices are warning that it will happen again.  It is just a matter of time.

Scientists tell us that the absolutely massive sunspot group that has recently formed on the sun is highly unusual.  NASA has described it as “crackling” with magnetic energy.  The mainstream media has not been paying too much attention to it, but this sunspot group is potentially extremely dangerous.

The following is an excerpt from an article on Discovery.com that gives some of the technical details about what has been going on…

The sunspot, a dark patch in the sun’s photosphere, represents intense solar magnetism bursting from the sun’s interior known as an active region. This particular active region, designated AR2192, has been rumbling with intense flare activity, recently exploding with 2 X-class flares, causing some short-lived high-frequency (HF) radio black outs around the globe.

Such blackouts are triggered by the intense extreme ultraviolet and X-ray radiation that solar flares can generate, causing ionization effects in the Earth’s upper atmosphere — a region known as the ionosphere. HF radio can be strongly hindered by this activity, triggering blackouts that can effect air traffic and amateur radio operators.
The other day a flare erupted which did cause radio blackouts all over the world for a time.  But we were fortunate that the flare was not directed at us.  If it had been, the results could have potentially been catastrophic.

We have not seen anything like this sunspot group for a very long time, and according to a report posted by the Daily Mail, experts are saying that we might not see another one like this for 25 years…
Space Weather Prediction Center forecaster Christopher Balch, meanwhile, said the flare affected radio that uses part of the upper atmosphere. That includes some but not all radar and plane systems as well as amateur radio.

Mr Balch said the storm briefly was rated as strong for affecting Earth radio systems but then dropped to minor levels.

The event followed months of near-silent activity on the sun before the huge flare erupted from a sunspot 14 times bigger than Earth.

A spokesperson for the Met Office Space Weather Operations Centre told MailOnline it may be the biggest sunspot for 25 years.
Unfortunately, there are no signs that this sunspot group is fading.

In fact, an official at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center said that "it continues to grow in size and complexity".

Below, I have posted a video which shows some of the recent activity on the sun.  As you can see, these explosions can be quite violent…



As advanced as we like to think that we are, the truth is that we are still very much at the mercy of this giant ball of fire that our planet revolves around.

And even with everything else that is going on in the world today, a massive electromagnetic burst from the sun remains one of the greatest potential dangers to our way of life.

Just check out what billionaire Paul Singer recently had to say about the matter.  He believes that an EMP event is “the most significant danger” the world is facing right now…
While these pages are typically chock full of scary or depressing scenarios, there is one risk that is head-and-shoulders above all the rest in terms of the scope of potential damage adjusted for the likelihood of occurrence,” Singer wrote to clients of his $24.8 billion Elliott Management on Monday in a standard investment update letter. “Even horrendous nuclear war, except in its most extreme form, can [be] a relatively localized issue, and the threat from asteroids can (possibly) be mitigated.

(A natural EMP event) today would cause a massive disruption to the electric grid, possibly shutting it down entirely for months or longer, with unimaginable consequences,” Singer wrote. “Only two years ago, the sun let loose with a Carrington-magnitude burst, but the position of the earth at the time prevented the burst from hitting it. The chances of additional events of such magnitude may be far greater than most people think.
For those not familiar with “the Carrington Event”, it was a massive solar storm in 1859 that fried telegraph machines all over Europe and North America.  You can read about it on Wikipedia right here.

Others share Singer’s concerns.

For example, check out what U.S. Representative Scott Perry said earlier this year
The consequences of such an attack could be catastrophic; all electronics, power systems, and information systems could be shut down,” Rep. Scott Perry said in prepared remarks during an EMP hearing in May held by the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security. “This could then cascade into interdependent infrastructures such as water, gas, and telecommunications. While we understand this is an extreme case, we must always be prepared in case a rogue state decides to utilize this technology.”
What we are talking about is a potentially society-crippling event.

For much more on this, I encourage you to check out my previous article entitled “What Are You Going To Do When A Massive EMP Blast Fries The U.S. Electrical Grid?

In a worst-case scenario, we could be facing a situation where the power grid is down for months or even years.

How would you and your family survive during such a crisis?

Even though this has never happened in modern times, it is a very real possibility.  In fact, just a couple of years ago the Earth experienced a very near miss.

As the Inquisitr detailed last month, such an event could throw us back into the pre-industrial age in a single instant…
According to Peter Vincent Pry, who advises Congress on homeland security issues, a large enough geomagnetic solar storm could produce effects similar to an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) generated by a nuclear weapon that “could collapse power grids everywhere on the planet and destroy EHV (extra high voltage) transformers and other electronic systems that would require years to repair or replace.” While the danger posed by a G5 solar storm gets mentioned occasionally at Congressional hearings, there really hasn’t been any major action.

Earlier this year, a Homeland Security adviser said America is not ready for an EMP attack, never mind a G5 solar storm, and it’s claimed that the U.S. power grid fails more often than any other in the world. If a large enough solar storm does impact the United States, the damaged electronic systems can cause a cascade of failures throughout the broader infrastructure, including banking systems, energy systems, transportation systems, food production and delivery systems, water systems, emergency services, and even the internet, so people may not even realize at first what has happened. Effectively, the U.S. would be thrown back to the pre-industrial age following a solar superstorm, and yet we are not prepared for the worst.
Usually people talk about how this could potentially happen “someday” in the future.

But with an extremely large solar storm currently rotating toward Earth, there is a very real possibility that an absolutely massive electromagnetic pulse could be headed our way at any time.

However, whether it happens next week, next month or next year, scientists assure us that it is inevitable that another Carrington Event will happen one day.

And when it finally happens and all the lights suddenly go out, what will our society look like afterwards?

Professor Says Evangelicals Will Be The Most Resistant To The Coming Assimilation By Aliens

Professor Says Evangelicals Will Be The Most Resistant To The Coming Assimilation By Aliens


At Scientific American, Clara Moskowitz has the transcript from a recent interview with Weintraub, in which they discuss the implications of extraterrestrial life on humanity's assorted religious sensibilities. Here's Weintraub on the difficulties that could be faced by religions that see humans as the sole focus of God's attention: "The religions that see the world through that viewpoint tend to be some of the Christian evangelicals. The Eastern Orthodox Church, a branch of Catholicism, also has that view. There are some people who claim that if God had created extraterrestrials, then there clearly would be words in the Old and New testaments, which we would have already found, that would have said explicitly that God created extraterrestrials—and since those words don't exist, there can't be. Well, there's nothing in the Old and New testaments that talks about telephones either, and telephones do seem...

Jim Stone ~ Anonymous Doctor Releases Treatment For The Ebola Virus (Not Colloidal Silver)



From: http://www.shiftfrequency.com/jim-stone-anonymous-doctor-releases-treatment-for-the-ebola-virus-not-colloidal-silver/

“The treatment for Ebola, along with accompanying MOA (Method Of Action) has been sent to this web site.” J Stone

Jim Stone, August 1, 2014 ~ This is a lengthy article, Do not surface read. The actual treatment for ebola which will virtually eliminate fatalities, as revealed by a doctor who has worked with ebola, is below.

Consider this: The elite would never release a plague without an easy cure, and along with this ebola outbreak an American biowarfare firm has been working in Sierra Leon for the last five years. Google that. Sierra Leon has actually identified them as the perpetrators of this outbreak and kicked them out of the country. There is absolutely no doubt this outbreak was intentionally caused by the U.S. war department.

And if it is intentional, a cure is known. There would simply be no other way to do business.

Here is the treatment, complete with MOA. This is a treatment and not a cure, your immune system wipes out the virus, and the treatment gives your immune system time to do it. Here is what Ebola does that is fatal: It causes the complete removal of all vitamin C from the body. No one actually knows what mechanism is involved in doing this, other than a malfunction that is not permanently destructive to whatever is triggered to remove all vitamin C. All the researchers know is that vitamin C drops to zero and all the symptoms of ebola are consistent with a complete loss of vitamin C.

How do I know this? A doctor who has remained anonymous and has worked with ebola victims has discovered this and sent it to this web site, at last check this cannot be googled which confirms this doctor did not just copy paste, So post it everywhere; get this out there, the treatment for ebola which will prevent death is known and this is an emergency request for my readers to spread this info and stop this ebola attack in its tracks.

From an anonymous doctor

Summary

“The very first symptoms of ebola are exactly the same as scurvy, which is caused by inadequate vitamin C. Though scurvy is seldom fatal as a primary condition, scurvy also represents only a partial deficiency of vitamin C, the body still has a LOT of vitamin C compared to zero, which ebola causes. Absent ANY vitamin C, blood vessels become very weak and start to lose blood, and platelets become ineffective and unable to trigger clots. So death by ebola is caused by massive internal bleeding and loss of blood, which can be stopped simply by taking enormous doses of vitamin C until the immune system succeeds in killing off the virus.”

Begin text

Ebola is probably the best known of a class of viruses known as hemorrhagic fever viruses. In fact, Ebola virus was initially recognized in 1976. Other less known but related viral syndromes include yellow fever, dengue hemorrhagic fever, Rift Valley fever, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever, Kyasanur Forest disease, Omsk hemorrhagic fever, hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome, Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, Venezuelan hemorrhagic fever, Brazilian hemorrhagic fever, Argentine hemorrhagic fever, Bolivian hemorrhagic fever, and Lassa fever. The Ebola virus infection, also known as African hemorrhagic fever, has the distinction of having the highest case-fatality rate of the viral infections noted above, ranging from 53% to 88%.

These viral hemorrhagic fever syndromes share certain clinical features. The Cecil Textbook of Medicine notes that these diseases are characterized by capillary fragility, which translates to easy bleeding, that can frequently lead to severe shock and death. These diseases also tend to consume and/or destroy the platelets, which play an integral role in blood clotting. The clinical presentation of these viral diseases is similar to scurvy, which is also characterized by capillary fragility and a tendency to bleed easily. Characteristic skin lesions develop, which are actually multiple tiny areas of bleeding into the skin that surround the hair follicles. some cases even include bleeding into already healed scars.

In the classic form of scurvy that evolves very slowly from the gradual depletion of vitamin C body stores, the immune system will be sufficiently compromised for infection to claim the patient’s life before the extensive hemorrhage that occurs after all vitamin C stores have been completely exhausted. Ebola virus and the other viral hemorrhagic fevers are much more likely to cause hemorrhaging before any other fatal infection has a chance to become established. This is because the virus so rapidly and totally metabolizes and consumes all available vitamin C in the bodies of the victims that an advanced stage of scurvy is literally produced after only a few days of the disease.

The scurvy is so complete that the blood vessels generally cannot keep from hemorrhaging long enough to allow an infective complication to develop. Also, the viral hemorrhagic fevers typically only take hold and reach epidemic proportions in those populations that would already be expected to have low body stores of vitamin C, such as is found in many of the severely malnourished Africans. In such individuals, an infecting hemorrhagic virus will often wipe out any remaining vitamin C stores before the immune systems can get the upper hand and initiate recovery. When the vitamin C stores are rapidly depleted by large infecting doses of an aggressive virus, the immune system gets similarly depleted and compromised. However, this point is largely academic after hemorrhaging throughout the body has begun.

To date, no viral infection has been demonstrated to be resistant to the proper dosing of vitamin C as classically demonstrated by Klenner. However, not all viruses have been treated with Klenner-sized vitamin C doses, or at least the results have not been published. Ebola viral infection and the other acute viral hemorrhagic fevers appear to be diseases that fall into this category. Because of the seemingly exceptional ability of these viruses to rapidly deplete vitamin C stores, even larger doses of vitamin C would likely be required in order to effectively reverse and eventually cure infections caused by these viruses.

Cathcart (1981), who introduced the concept of bowel tolerance to vitamin C discussed earlier, hypothesized that Ebola and the other acute viral hemorrhagic fevers may well require 500,000 mg of vitamin C daily to reach bowel tolerance! Whether this estimate is accurate, it seems clear as evidenced by the scurvy-like clinical manifestations of these infections that vitamin C dosing must be vigorous and given in extremely high doses. If the disease seems to be winning, then even more vitamin C should be given until symptoms begin to lessen. Obviously, these are viral diseases that would absolutely require high doses of vitamin C intravenously as the initial therapy. The oral administration should begin simultaneously, but the intravenous route should not be abandoned until the clinical response is complete. Death occurs too quickly with the hemorrhagic fevers to be conservative when dosing the vitamin C. (from Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases, and Toxins:Curing the Incurable by Thomas E. Levy MD JD)

Jim Stone’s Comment

I may not be a doctor, but I am awful good with medical topics, and this rings 100 percent true, IT IS THE MOA which if combined with some of my medical knowledge, such as the fact that Broccoli is absolutely excellent for assisting the clotting of blood, that the active component of Noni (which is in pineapple juice) is strongly anti viral, and that cures such as colloidal silver, while good for bacterial infections does nothing for viruses, combine some real knowledge with what this doctor says and it is highly probable that Ebola can be shrugged off as a mild case of scurvy.

Beware the current Colloidal Silver psy op, the actual cure for Ebola has been given to this web site.

Colloidal silver is great stuff, and I have made gallons from a 1 ounce silver bar myself. It works great for curing bacterial infections and making water safe to drink without the nasty taste of iodine. However, colloidal silver will do nothing against viruses, and huge lies are being hatched right now to misguide people to a false ebola cure and the alternative media is lapping it up

All curative agents have a mode of action, or MOA. And if anyone posting medical cures does not know the MOA, they have no idea what they are talking about. Colloidal silver has an MOA that has been known for many decades, yet recently Google has been rigged to bury it with only articles stating “the MOA is being explored and we think it is ___(then disinfo)” and there has to be a reason why this is being done right now, at this point in time with Ebola running amok.

Here is how colloidal silver actually works (its MOA), with first an example: Colloidal silver is to bacteria what cyanide is for all red blooded organisms. In red blooded organisms, cyanide binds with hemoglobin in place of oxygen, and makes it impossible for blood to carry oxygen. With enough cyanide, oxygen starvation via cyanide bonded hemoglobin causes death.

Colloidal silver does the same for bacteria, it binds with the oxygen carriers in bacteria permanently, causing bacteria to quickly die from oxygen starvation. This is the MOA for colloidal silver, which has been clearly known practically forever.

Viruses have no metabolic processes which require an oxygen carrier, and therefore colloidal silver will be completely ineffective against ebola.

Do not let the misinformed in the alternative media fool you by saying colloidal silver is effective against viruses in any way, colloidal silver is only useful for treating secondary bacterial infections that move in after a preceeding viral infection and in the case of ebola, there is not enough time for that to make a difference.

Big Berkey beats ProPur gravity water filter for removal of heavy metals and toxic elements



(NaturalNews) When it comes to the removal of heavy metals and toxic elements from water, Big Berkey water filters easily beat ProPur, according to independent lab tests conducted at the Natural News Forensic Food Labs and published online today.

Full details of the tests conducted with parts-per-billion accuracy via ICP-MS instrumentation are shown at the new website www.WaterFilterLabs.com

As the data show, the Big Berkey water filter with attached arsenic / fluoride filter elements easily beat the ProPur water filter outfitted with the new "All-in-One" fluoride filter elements. In fact, according to the performance of the units we tested, Zen Water Systems also beat the ProPur water filter. (See lab test results chart below.)

Note: These tests were conducted solely for the removal of heavy metals and toxic elements, not pesticides, glyphosate, PCBs or other complex organic molecules. Additionally, this was not a microbiology test, so the removal of bacteria or viruses was not part of the scope of this testing.

Big Berkey also best at removing elements with radioactive isotopes

In this scientific assessment, we tested for the ability of popular off-the-shelf water filters to remove heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, arsenic and mercury as well as elements that have radioactive isotopes such as strontium, cesium and uranium. Finally, we also tested for aluminum reduction due to the chemtrails concern among many consumers today.

See full laboratory results of all gravity water filters at www.WaterFilterLabs.com

Natural News received no compensation from any of these manufacturers to test their products. All products were purchased "off the shelf" (at Amazon.com) at regular street prices, and none of the manufacturers were aware that we were acquiring their products for testing.

In these tests, the Big Berkey water filter vastly out-performed ProPur across all elements. For example, while the ProPur water filter only removed 20.2% of cesium, the Big Berkey removed 98.6%.

In our tests, arsenic removal by the ProPur "All-in-One" filter was 61.6%, while the Big Berkey filter removed 100%.

Full results of the removal results across all tested elements are available now at www.WaterFilterLabs.com

Here's a snapshot chart showing the results across five brands of gravity water filters:



Al = Aluminum
Cu = Copper
As = Arsenic
Sr = Strontium
Cd = Cadmium
Cs = Cesium
Hg = Mercury
Pb = Lead
U = Uranium

ProPur's new "All-in-One" filter elements far better than previous filters, but still not close to effectiveness of Big Berkey water filter elements

One of the interesting results from our tests is that ProPur's standard filters which have been sold for years performed relatively poorly in these tests.

In fairness to ProPur, we actually delayed the release of these results until we could acquire their new "All-in-One" filter elements and test those. The new "All-in-One" filter elements were significantly more effective than ProPur's standard filters, but were still not nearly as effective as the Big Berkey filters that we tested.



The following chart shows the improvement in toxic element reduction achieved by ProPur's new "All-in-One" filter elements vs. their previous standard filters:



As you can see from the chart, both filters performed almost identically for removal of Cesium and Mercury, but the new "All-in-One" filters were substantially improved across all other elements, especially lead and cadmium.

Conclusions

The conclusion from these tests is that Natural News can only currently recommend two gravity water filters for the removal of heavy metals and toxic elements:

• Big Berkey (with the arsenic / fluoride filters attached)
• Zen Water Systems

Big Berkey filters are available through a number of affiliates and representatives. Zen Water Systems filters are available on Amazon.com and other online retailers. Both filters offered outstanding performance in our tests. The Berkey filter, being made of stainless steel, is more of a "survival" style of filter, while the Zen Water Systems filter is more of a contemporary design, suitable for kitchens or office environments.

27% of Americans are now afraid to fly because of Ebola




(NaturalNews) Hyped-up Ebola fears have descended into the Western World, splattered all over the media and dripping like infectious blood through the minds of Americans. When the Western medical system failed to properly identify the first stray case of Ebola, two other nurses were infected and isolated. With several unaccounted West Africans traveling liberally to the US, some people are worried that they might cross paths with another stray case of the Ebola virus, as it travels intercontinentally through the airlines. A new GfK poll shows that Americans are more afraid of flying than ever. More than one-fourth (27%) are afraid to board flights because of the Ebola threat.

The more people fear Ebola, the more susceptible society is to its potential chaos. Why? It's because fear weakens the immune system. A prepared individual, strong in mind, body and spirit, has nothing to fear.

Here's what America should really be concerned with

In fact, fear will only lead one to a state of dependence on the medical system in the end (which is much more deadly than a single Ebola virus). Look at the stats. After studying the pandemic in West Africa, it's becoming apparent that the treatment centers and their under-trained, under-prepared staff and unorganized, unethical quarantines might be more dangerous in the end. A little bit of health self-reliance goes a long way in preventing being controlled by a blind medical system. Who wants to be corralled into a medical system where one is more susceptible to superbugs and airborne viruses?

In the poll, 20% of Americans were afraid of "both domestic and international travel, while 5% feared only international travel and 2% feared only domestic travel." Women were more afraid than men, making up 30% of those scared to travel compared to 24% of men. Interestingly, 4% of those surveyed said "they have deferred or changed travel plans due to Ebola."

As Americans grow increasingly afraid of airfare travel, the US government has ratcheted down on travel bans for those from West Africa coming into the US. The Obama Administration responded to the fears by limiting travel from Ebola-stricken countries to five main airports that will institute additional screening.

Get your mind, body and spirit prepared now so you don't have to live in fear

To stay ahead of the curve and be self-assured in the power of your own immune system, make sure that you are both supplementing with whole-food and superfood nutrition and properly absorbing the nutrients. It's important to reset the colon and stomach yearly by pulling out excess waste. This can be accomplished with various natural products. One of them is psyllium seed husk, which will sweep the colon like a broom. Another is slippery elm bark, which adds bulk to the stool. Ground black walnut hull is antiviral and antifungal, capable of cleaning out the bowels and any parasites.

As the digestive system heals and begins functioning optimally, it's best to supplement with probiotics found in minimally processed Greek yogurt or certain fermented foods. Supplementing with a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with the mother intact every day will stabilize the gut and encourage absorption. One of the best ways to obtain nutrition is to supplement with clean chlorella or spirulina. Both of these are loaded with full-spectrum nutrition.

When it comes down to staving off viruses, herbal medicine is the way to go. Antiviral plant constituents are found in substances like Echinacea, goldenseal, black cumin, elderberries, licorice root, oregano, cat's claw bark and many more! Natural plants, herbs and trees have adapted to their surroundings and disease over many centuries, creating natural antiviral substances within their chemistry.

Man has nothing to fear, as long as he understands how to work with nature and use his very own powerful immune system. It's important to be mindful of what goes into the body, both food and thoughts.

Calorie Differences for the same meal with Steak, Chicken Breast, and a Chicken Thigh

The Ezekiel Diet Files
October 23, 2014

Remember red meat is limited to twice a week and never two days in a row. Also, red meat at 55 calories an ounce adds up in a hurry. Compared to 30 calories an ounce for chicken breast, and 40 calories an ounce for chicken thigh. By the way, I soaked the chicken below in the sea salt, garlic powder, and pepper brine solution for 2 to 6 hours and it definitely makes a huge difference in taste.

6 oz steak 330 calories, grilled asparagus and sweet potato 100 calories = 430 calories


4 oz Chicken Thigh 160 calories, grilled asparagus and sweet potato 100 calories = 260 calories  (room for a slice of Ezekiel Bread with butter)


6 oz Chicken Breast 180 calories, grilled asparagus and sweet potato 100 calories = 280 calories  (room for a slice of Ezekiel Bread with butter)

Grilling Leftovers

Remember to cover the grill up with meat and vegetables to make as many leftovers as possible. Everything pictured above makes great leftovers except the steak. So if you plan to grill some chicken, grab some sweet potatoes, some squash or zucchini, asparagus, or even thick sliced onions to coat in olive oil, seasoning and grill.

The most dangerous place to be right now during this Ebola outbreak




(NaturalNews) As Ebola continues to systematically spread throughout various geographic locations, one has to begin to put together their own plan of personal responsibility in order to have the best possible outcome should they become exposed to the Ebola virus. Part of this plan should entail staying away from the most dangerous place to be during this stage of an Ebola outbreak, in order to prevent its rapid transmission.

Air travel - a triple threat

Air travel has become a way of life and has allowed us to circle parts of the world that were previously impossible. This international flavor added to our life has been enriching for many, but now poses a serious threat that makes it much less appealing, for three main reasons.

International exposure

With international air travel now a cultural norm, this makes it incredibly easy for people in geographic regions that are "world's away" to end up on your doorstep within 24 hours.

How easy and quickly this could happen has already been illustrated through Thomas Eric Duncan, who reportedly became infected with Ebola while interacting with family members in Liberia. He traveled by air to the United States, connecting through an airport in Washington, D.C. before arriving at the Dallas-Fort Worth airport in Texas.

As many as 100 people were being monitored in Texas for Ebola symptoms after coming into contact with Duncan or a close relative, and since then a second Dallas hospital worker (nurse) where Duncan was being treated has been confirmed as infected. To make matters worse, this infected second nurse has just been confirmed as being on a commercial flight with 132 other passengers! This could have never happened if Duncan did not have access to international air travel.

If you believe that an Ebola infected passenger will be scrutinously kept off flights, you may want to think again. First of all, there is a dangerous assumption that if a person is not symptomatic they can't spread the Ebola virus, but that notion is really unclear according to Michael Osterholm, a public health scientist at the University of Minnesota who recently served on the U.S. government's National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity. So any passenger allowed on board who shows no signs of Ebola (but could possibly still be infected, for up to 42 days according to new reports from the WHO) is an invisible wild card that carries a lot of risk.

Additionally, airport screening for those who show symptoms has been found to be "leaky" at best. According to CNN senior medical correspondent Elizabeth Cohen, she was shocked and horrified at the lack of screening for Ebola at an Atlanta airport after coming back from Liberia. "I expected that they were going to take my temperature, they were going to ask me lots of questions, but they didn't," Cohen said.

This makes the CDC's claim that 100% of travelers are carefully screened before boarding an airplane completely ludicrous., and adds another layer of danger to air travel.

Proximity

Flying in tight quarters with up to hundreds of people from different areas of the world is dicey at best when it comes to avoiding an Ebola infection, should the virus be on board. We have been led to believe that Ebola can only spread through direct contact (which if true, still raises several concerns), however, some virologists are openly questioning this dangerous CDC assumption. As reported by the LA Times:

...some also question the official assertion that Ebola cannot be transmitted through the air. In late 1989, virus researcher Charles L. Bailey supervised the government's response to an outbreak of Ebola among several dozen rhesus monkeys housed for research in Reston, Va., a suburb of Washington.

What Bailey learned from the episode informs his suspicion that the current strain of Ebola afflicting humans might be spread through tiny liquid droplets propelled into the air by coughing or sneezing. "We know for a fact that the virus occurs in sputum and no one has ever done a study [disproving that] coughing or sneezing is a viable means of transmitting," he said. Unqualified assurances that Ebola is not spread through the air, Bailey said, are "misleading."

If a virus can be transmitted by air, this makes an Ebola infected individual a sincere threat during air travel.

Immune suppression

A serious issue with air travel, but vastly underappreciated, is the mega dose of EMF radiation that is inflicted upon its passengers. With amounts that are 20-100 times more than the "safe" exposure (according to the EPA), it is a severely concentrated assault on the biological function of your body, resulting in serious immune suppression.

Several effects have been noted on the body in presence of EMF's, including the exacerbation of existing symptoms, and accelerating microorganism replication. In other words, speeding up infections!

Since a fully functional immune system is your best natural defense against an Ebola virus, having it severely suppressed on an international flight while EMF's are possibly exacerbating and speeding up a poorly screened passenger who has the Ebola virus, is a recipe for disaster.

For all these reasons, it is important to avoid air travel at all costs during this stage of the outbreak. However, if you do need to travel by air, ensure you read Protect Yourself From Ebola, and Dangers of Airtravel. If you do need to travel, be sure to make your immune system bullet proof.
