“Traditional” Mediterranean Diet Under Attack

This woman is kind of a big shot, so she can not just say what ever she wants. Here I have copied the best part; here is her Blog Post.

A Way Out

But there is a way out, Greece has three important advantages when it comes to nutrition:

1. A traditional diet that is the gold standard of diets. The traditional Greek diet is considered the purest form and the prototype of the Mediterranean diet. We do not need to reinvent the wheel, we have excellent published nutrition guidelines based on the diets of our parents and grandparents. We just need to make the diet relevant and accessible again.

2. Access to fresh food. Greece does not have food desserts. Every neighborhood/suburb poor or affluent, has a farmers market at least twice a week. This is key in raising awareness on how a traditional Greek diet is healthy and affordable.

3. Greek Filotimo and Filoxenia. Even in difficult times Greeks are helping those in need even though they are having their own financial difficulties. In Greek culture offering to another is considered an obligation, it is a reflection of who you are. According to a recent survey from the Dianeosis, an estimated 58% of Greeks have provided assistance to those in need through the form of food, clothing, money or volunteer work. That is quite high considering that Greeks are going through their own crisis.

1600 in 8

I mentioned in a recent Blog Post that I care about your health. I also mentioned that I see it as my job to help you make the best health choices that you can. One way that I do that is by providing you with valuable information: not the stuff you will get through the mainstream (corporate) media; and not the stuff you will see walking down the isles.

Often what we recommend is free – if you don’t count time and energy. Sometimes there is a cost. But the cost of health promotion and maintenance is nothing compared to the cost of being sick and diseased. And it is going to be one or the other. The older you get, the more certain you can be of that fact.

It is hard for some people to believe that we are not just another place making recommendations so we can sell stuff. For those who can get past that and actually look at what we recommend… here is a video describing the results of the 36th clinical study performed on JuicePlus+ products (https://safeshare.tv/x/ss58fb8760eb9a4).

(And I just figured out that if you go to our JP+ site and click on the photo of the Journal that each study is published in, you get a synopsis of the research results, cool huh? Here is the link to the Study in the video: http://dennisdilday.juiceplus.com/us/en/clinical-research/published-medical-and-scientific-journals)

JuicePlus+ is like Tai Chi and Kangen water: the more science studies it, the more benefits it is recognized as having. These things are like cheating for anyone wanting to restore or maintain their health. If that is you just let us know and we can help.

Asian Women

In the past few weeks I have needed to make trips to Lynnwood to the Enagic headquarters.

Each time, in fact as I thought about it almost every time I have ever gone there, I noticed well dressed asian women coming and going from the place. They are always getting into or out of new looking, high-dollar, vehicles. They are usually with friends. And they are always happy.

I don’t know whether they have husbands who work at high level jobs in Boeing, or blow leaves off of side walks – they may not have husbands at all. It doesn’t matter. It is great to see people who do the math.

Enagic is a Japanese company. It is about water. And it is about health promotion at the deepest levels.”Change your water, change your life,” is their motto.

So it is a perfect fit. I think that is very cool!

P.S. – Our next Kangen Water demonstration is March 25th at 2 p.m. If you would like to learn more about it, give us a call.

Less is More

When it comes to aging and health that is. An earlier Post discussed the importance of a “fast” between the last meal of the day and the first meal the next day. This research reinforces what we already have known for many years: caloric restriction has benefits.

IMPORTANT: “Bullet Proof” Tomatoes & The Kangen Water Demo

I showed up Saturday at Howard’s house for the Kangen Water demonstration; he didn’t have any of the tomatoes for the demo, so I went and got some.

In the produce department at QFC I asked the hired help where the cherry tomatoes were located – he moved to the side revealing the very tomatoes. As I picked up what I thought was the right item, and looked at all the colorful look-alike choices, he said, “We sell more of those than any of the other ones,” indicating the ones in my hand. (Remember that for later.) There were labeled “Cherubs” (cherub = “angel”, so these are “Little Angels”)

So the Kangen Demo was going fine: We got all the way through the Oxidation Reduction Potential of all the waters being compared, visually seeing the difference between each water with an ORP meter – and learning about energy in water, or the lack thereof.

Then we covered the pH differences, seeing each glass of water turn various colors, and we saw with tea portion of the demo what a difference it makes how water molecules clump together and the impact that has on its ability to get into cells.

With that all done we moved on from the drinking water part of the story to the Strong Acidic (2.5 pH) water, and learned how easy it is to kill bacteria, etc. Everything was going according to plan.

Then we got to the Strong Alkaline (11.5 pH) part of the talk. Here we learn what an emulsifier this water from the Enagic machine is: useful for cleaning anything greasy – Howard keeps spray bottles of both Strong waters in his refrigerator. The last part of the demo dramatically makes this point of emulsification by comparing cherry tomatoes soaked in tap water for a few minutes to cherry tomatoes soaked in the Kangen 11.5 pH water.

Then we got some surprises, never seen before by either myself or Howard, who has done hundreds (he said a thousand) demonstrations of Kangen water. First, though, here is what always had happened in the past: pouring the tap water off the tomatoes, the water is clear; pouring the Strong Alkaline water off of the tomatoes, the water is cloudy and dirty (Point: all the herbicides and pesticides get washed off the tomatoes soaked in Kangen water, but not off the tomatoes soaked in tap water. Message: Knowing that, do you really want to keep eating all of those herbicides and pesticides.)

The second thing that we usually see is that, when you do pour off the tap water the tomatoes were soaking in, water full of chlorine, and test it for the presence of chlorine, there is no longer any chlorine in the water (Point: the tomatoes took up the chlorine. Message: Knowing that, do you still want to eat those tomatoes?)

Here is what happened this time: the 11.5 pH water was clear! (There was no pesticides or herbicides on the tomatoes. How could that be, we wondered? Conclusion: these are GMO tomatoes and the herbicides and pesticides are built into the tomato itself! Then, still stunned, we poured the tap water off the other tomatoes, and tested it for chlorine: there was still chlorine in the water – it did not get absorbed into the tomatoes.

So I looked at Howard and said, “Do you know what this means?” And he said, “These are bullet-proof tomatoes.” (We checked on the bottom of the container, sure enough, they were coded as GMO.) No one there would eat those tomatoes. Would you, now that you know what you know?

Biome on the Brian (Parkinson’s)

It’s been coming for a while; now it’s all the rage. Everyone will have something to say about. Experts will sprout like mushrooms. And everything that isn’t blamed on President Trump will be blamed on disrupting the biome.

Below is an example. And don’t get me wrong: the importance of the biome (new word maybe but it just refers to friendly bacteria in the body) is not news really, it is just getting to be the popular topic as more and more is learned about the details. But how to have a healthy biome and the kinds of things that mess it up – much of it anyway – has been known and spoken of by health advocates for a very long time.

Anyway, here is some news that you can use: http://neurosciencenews.com/microbiome-gut-parkinsons-6191/

Oh, and I forgot to mention, everyone will have something to sell: here, this Post, is the lead-in kind of talk (“microbiota-directed therapies”): http://neurosciencenews.com/microbiota-gut-brain-6183/

JP+ has offered added probiotics in its Capsule products since the beginning over 20 years ago, by the way.

It Is Just Nuts

From BottomLinePERSONAL, March 1, 2017

(Nuts have been on my mind since the BlueZone awareness was raised again recently – I Blogged about it here. It is weird: I always loved nuts but, when I looked at my habits, they were not prevalent – I have fixed that. Here is why you should too! )

This is from a review of data from 20 prospective studies leg by researchers at Imperial College London, UK, and Harvard T. H. School of Public Health, Boston, published in BMC Medicine.

Here is what they had to say:

Just a few nuts a day may lower disease risk. In a review of studies, people who ate nuts had a 29% lower risk for coronary heart disease… 21% reduced risk for cardiovascular disease…and 15% lower risk for cancer. Nut eaters also had a 52% lower risk for respiratory disease…39% lower risk for diabetes…and 75% lower reduced risk for infectious disease. Most risk reduction for all diseases occurred in people who ate just one once of nuts per day-about two dozen almonds or 15 pecan halves.

(If you like nuts, it shouldn’t be too hard to get more of them into your life. Then you will get into the whole issue of soaking the nuts before you eat them… but that is different story. No wise cracks now from the peanut gallery, Ok? Restrain yourselves, please…:-)

Smoking & The Oolong Tea Guy

Not what you would expect.

I am real big on his book; and on his tea. The smoking part? I don’t know yet.
