Eat Away Your Acid Reflux Before It Eats Away You

Fast food, industrially processed food, and the terrible dietary advice dispensed by the health care industry are a primary cause of many disorders. Add too much sugar, some soft drinks, eating on the run with a quick breakfast of donuts and coffee, and you are well on your way to digestive-related disorders, including acid-reflux disease—also known as Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease or GERD.

About 60 million Americans already have acid-reflux (one out of five people) and many people have acid-reflux without knowing it. In addition to the typical symptom of acid-regurgitation, there are many other lesser-known symptoms including hoarseness, belching, chronic throat clearing and sore throat, persistent coughing, difficulty swallowing, nausea, asthma, wheezing and persistent hiccups in adults. In infants and children, frequent ear infections, excessive crying, nausea with or without vomiting, excessive coughing, respiratory problems, refusing food, excessive belching and burping.

Sugars: Natural and Artificial Sweeteners

New Issue of the Living Food Bulletin

Wednesday, Bulletin #2 will come off the printing press–just in time for me to take them to The Weston A Price Conference this weekend. It is an International Food and Health conference and exhibition. This is something Annie and I put out and boy, we are having a blast with it. The theme of Bulletin #1 was Fermenting Vegetables (Sauerkraut and such) I am giving you a FREE sample of each. I will remind you that this is a local bulletin and a national sampler, of course, the content is good anywhere . . . including the recipes. Here is the opening introduction on the front page:

Sugars: Natural and Artificial Sweeteners (Page 1 of 12)

There is hope for prevention and recovery of many illnesses and autoimmune, digestive and neurological disorders largely through eating nutrient-dense foods. Over consumption of sugars is one of the major problems.

Stevia, the natural zero-calorie sweetener

Everyone knows that too much sugar is bad but most do not know much about sugar, how much is enough and just how bad it is. The fact is sugars are in almost all processed foods and drinks (and fruit, of course), so people get far more sugar than they realize. The average person consumes 150 pounds of sugar a year and, for some, much more. Something is wrong.

Sweeteners along with too many grains, cereals, breads and pasta (carbohydrates, which convert to sugar) cause sugar levels to skyrocket and do its damage. Sugar is sugar, so even natural sugars must be controlled. Children are especially at risk for sugar overdose and addiction, setting them up for early obesity, disorders and disease. A little bit of sugar can trigger a child into bad behavior and hyperactive states, especially those with autism and ADHD.

This issue gives you practical information on the vast field of sugars, including six steps to help you reduce. What are natural sweeteners? How much is enough? How can I easily replace and control sugars? Are artificial sweeteners and high-fructose corn syrup dangerous? What are the costs of the sugar blues? What physical and mental symptoms are caused by frequent and heavy sugar intake?  These questions will be answered here and further online references are given.

Why not start your journey to better health and healing with the sugar problem? You will be surprised when you cut out sugar how good the real food tastes and how sugary sweets become unappealing.

It is important to buy local natural sugars such as honey and maple syrup (sorghum and molasses, if available) because you are supporting the local producers and economy. As mentioned here, natural Stevia is the zero-calorie sweetener of choice and does not affect blood sugar.

When you find your local food producers and farmers in sustainable agriculture that naturally produce fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, and dairy, you will find nutrient-dense foods—your key to improved health.

See Living Food in the iShop and pick up the free sample. Of course, you will be supporting the new venture and its internet companion, the Journal– by getting the full issue for ten bucks. SHARE this with our new Buttons below. Next issue is on Raw Milk and Dairy Products!–Augie

This is a note to our local area (Canton Ohio area) readers of the paper bulletin: Find real natural food using this Bulletin through our supporting advertisers. When you visit their farm or store, you can get the other Living Food bulletins. Ask them about other natural food sources in your area.

Train Up A Child to Cook Real Food: Healthy Kids Recipe eCards

Studies: Junk Food Causing Birth Defects

A recent study out of Georgetown University Medical Center has concluded that what you eat can affect your children’s and grandchildren’s health, even if they eat healthy themselves. Sonia de Assis and her colleagues observed that rats fed Omega-6 fatty, unhealthy food pass on an increased cancer risk to their children and grandchildren. Omega-6 fats are found in cheap, industrial oils such as soy, vegetable and corn oil.

The study results were presented at this year’s American Association for Cancer Research in Washington, D.C., and illustrates that a fatty diet can actually contribute to “epigenetic” DNA modifications, which are inherited changes in DNA patterns. Essentially, one’s offspring can inherit DNA changes caused by their parents’ unhealthy diets and other environmental factors.

The story at msnbc states: If a person’s parents or grandparents ate a diet rich in processed, chemical-laden foods throughout their lives, then the DNA changes that likely occurred in their bodies may be passed down to their children. Even if they themselves didn’t develop cancer, the children will be more likely to develop it, based on the findings of the study. Continue reading
