Chronic Stress? Cortisol Levels Up? or Peace?

Ordinarily, this would have been a rant but today I remembered what I’ve been learning lately. 

Do you get these frantic feelings when everything is coming at you faster than you can throw it all back or put it in its rightful place?

Does it make you crazy?

How do those feelings tie in with your health? 

You probably know we need cortisol to protect us when this overly stressed animal  takes his wrath out on us, the flight or fight hormone. Your body produces some cortisol but you read our St. Patrick Day blog right?

Cortisol is the fight or flight hormone or stress hormone.  But too much of it can dampen immune response and shut down the very process that attacks life-threatening microbes or keeps malignant cells from proliferating into an invasive tumor. *

I found a magnificent source for turning stressful situations into a peaceful relief.

A quick story from this morning to reveal my source.

Today, I am considering a date when we can go back to Charleston, SC having only been home from there for 10 days, having taken many hours filling out forms and an application for a new position, mentally planning decluttering for a possible move, what should I sell or give away? Sticking to my commitment to get my book to the editor this month for an August publication date, wishing I could go to Raleigh, NC for our grandson, Will’s birthday party, what to start on first, and oh, what about building my platform before the book launch.

And here’s what I had for the 27th (today) in my devotional reading.

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, honorable, …right, …pure…lovely…is of good repute … think on these things” (Philippians 4:6-8

Whew! What a relief, once again, I forgot, it’s not all up to me. God is still alive. I’ve been using Charles Stanley’s Bible Study on 30 LIfe Principles (click here) and I wondered how many of the 30 applied to this situation or related to it at all. Here’s what I found.  (Right now, today, 30 Life Principles Bible Study is 40% off. Only $5.99)

LP #2 Obey God and leave all the consequences to Him.

LP #3 God’s word is an immutable anchor in time of storm. HOW PERFECT IS THAT , this storm will pass.

LP # 5 God does not require us to understand His will, just obey it, even if it seems unreasonable.

NOTE: It did seem quite unreasonable to me to move again, since we just moved here 2 years ago. but…I don’t have to understand if He does call us to this position.

LP #9 Trusting God means looking beyond what we can see to what God sees.

LP # 11 God assumes responsibility for our needs when we obey Him.

LP #12 Peace with God is the fruit of oneness with God.

LP # 28 No Christian has ever been called to “go it alone” in his or her walk of faith.

****************************************

Of coures, all of the 30 can be applied but for the sake of space and plagerism I chose these few.

The source of peace not only for me but for you and everyone is God’s Holy Word, the Bible. Before you express any negative feelings about that, please try it, you’ll like it. 

There is peace like a river, you can find peace like a river, lower cortisol levels, and lengthen you life. Seriously, studies show chronic stress is a major cause of cancer

IN full disclosure I do receive a small kick back if you use the link above to invest in Charles Stanley’s Bible study, but I promise to use it to further the gospel here and in Charleston if God calls us there. Fair enough?

Recipe for Low Carb BLT-Stuffed Avocado

I don’t recommend a lot of bacon in your diet, it contains transfats, which you will want to limit. YOu could leave it off of this recipe and still get your needed fats from the healthy avocado.

I saw this on a friend’s facebook page, just had to share it with you. By now you know that Dr. Mercola is right. His newly released book, Fat for Fuel expains the need your mitrochondria have for fat. When you limit fat intake, your body uses glucose for fuel. This could be habit forming for your system if it continues. Now that the fat isn’t being used for fuel, what happens to it? The fat then is stored all over your body, it robs you of energy, health, and good looks. This recipe originated at wholesomeyum.com I think you’ll enjoy it.

BLT Stuffed Avocado (Paleo, Low Carb)

Which Mushrooms Inhibit Cancer Growth? (Recipe Included)

     Shiitake

 

Mushrooms:

 

 

Our immune system has the ability to fully recognize abnormal cells and remove them but only when it becomes fully activated by eating mushrooms. Mushrooms have angiogenesis inhibitors – that means these compounds inhibit new blood vessel growth. You see, in order for a tumor to grow and for cells to become cancerous and spread they have to send out new signals that create new blood vessels to grow and feed them with nutrients and oxygen. But mushrooms say: “No way.” They inhibit the enzymes released by abnormal cells that promote blood vessel growth. This in turn restricts the oxygen and nutrients from getting to those cells so these substances derived from mushrooms starve off tumors and cancers.”

Mushrooms also prevent the fat in our bodies from growing by stopping the deliveries of calories to feed those fat cells which act as tumors, secreting hormones that stimulate the growth of blood vessels. When the blood vessels grow they become weaker, when their job is really to hold in the nutrients.

The weaker they are the more likely they will leak blood that should be delivered to the liver for cleansing or excretion.

That’s why I’m posting this recipe of

 Dr. Fuhrman’s Famous Anticancer Soup

  • 6-8 medium zucchini
  • 1  1/2 cups mixed dry split peas, lentils and beans
  • 6 cups water
  • 5 pounds carrots or 5-6 cups carrot juice
  • 2 bunches organic celery or 2 cups celery juice
  • 4 medium onions
  • 3 leek stalks, sliced lengthwise to unravel and rinse
  • 2 bunches kale, collards, or other greens, chopped, tough stems and center ribs cut off and discarded
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 8 ounces mushrooms (shiitake, cremini, and/or oyster), chopped
  • 2 tablespoons VegZest or other no-salt seasoning blend
  • 1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash or other no-salt spice blend

Place the zucchini, beans, and water in a very larg pot over low heat and cover. Juice carrots and celery and add to pot. Blend onions, leeks, and kale in a high-powered blender with some of the soup liquid. Remove the  partially cooked zucchini from the pot. Add it and the cashews to the blended onions, leeks, and kale. Blend mix in batches until thick and creamy and return to the pot. Add the seasonings and mix thoroughly. Add the chopped mushrooms and simmer until beans are soft (about one hour).

NOTE: Juice carrots and celery in a juice extractor. Freshly juiced organ carrots maximize the flavor of this soup. *

this is what I use

Personal note from Marlene : You’ve seen my Omega 8004 extractor but I’ll show you again in this video if you haven’t seen it or forgot.

3 Important Steps to Prevent PE After Cancer Surgery (Or Any Post Surgery Care)

Wednesday is cancer prevention and reversal focus at Hideous Health Habits website.

CC BY-NC-ND by jk-digital

Welcome to our blog about post-surgery warnings after cancer surgery which also applies to patients of any surgery.

Pulmonary Embolism (PE) is a little-known condition which puts many of us at risk. According to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Public Health Association, more than half of us can’t identify a single risk factor for PE nor have we talked with our doctor about our possible risk of PE. Public ignorance of PE make it an even greater risk.

What is PE

Pulmonary Embolism is one of the leading causes of death in the U.S. Yet it is preventable if people would become aware of what to look for and how to handle PE. We’ll consider 3 steps to prevention in this blog.  

Dr. Craig Kent, MD¹ explains that venous thromboembolus (VTE) describes two conditions

  1. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  2. Pulmonary Embolism (PE)

DVT refers to a thrombus, or a blood clot which forms in a large vein, almost always in a leg. You may not have any symptoms, but if you do it will be in the form of swelling, pain, tenderness and redness. These symptoms are likely to appear behind the knee or in the calf and usually only in one leg.

Sometimes our amazing bodies can dissolve these clots. Unfortunately, other times a fragment of the clot breaks away and manages to reach the lungs. This traveling fragment is now called an embolus.  If this embolus lodges in a pulmonary artery or one of its branches, it blocks the artery and can cause death in as little as an hour.

Step #1 for PREVENTION (What to Watch For)

Symptoms of PE to watch for are

  • shortness of breath
  • chest wall tenderness or chest pain that worsens with a deep breath
  • rapid pulse
  • feeling of apprehension

If you or someone you’re caring for experiences any of these symptoms get medical assistance immediately.

So, step 1 is know the symptoms

Step #2 Get Up – Keep the Blood Flowing

To prevent PE one must keep the blood flow at a normal rate. After surgery, it is important to get up, as you know if you’ve ever been under hospital care, the nurse insists on walking you down the hall. Right? You don’t think you’re ready for that, but it’s important for blood flow and many bodily functions. Especially, for the prevention of PE as one of the causes is slow blood flow (called stasis). When you are immobile for a long time, which often happens after surgery, stasis is imminent.  Even flying on a plane, or not stopping for stretches during a long drive in the car has been known to cause PE. According to Dr. Kent, these are rare cases and usually occur in people who are predisposed to clotting. Over clotting usually occurs due to a genetic condition called thrombophilia.

But surgery is most often the cause due to the trauma to the body resulting from surgery. Put together the trauma of surgery and immobility after surgery and you have a fire cracker situation. But very preventable.

Step #3 Discover with Health Checks 

You may have a predisposition to PE. Blood that clots too easily can be a result of pregnancy, or being a cancer patient, which combined with immobility increases risk of PE. You and your doctor should be aware of your body and your family history. Talk to your doctor about the possibility of thrombosis in your heredity.

Don’t wait for symptoms. There are several tests to diagnose the presence of DVT (or PE) and some people have increased risks for it.  

  • Scans
  • ultrasound
  • checking blood pressure in the lower legs

If you discover the gene mutation (which can be detected with a simple blood test) the doctor may choose to use anticoagulants to treat if necessary. Ask your doctor to test you. If you anticipate surgery, ask your doctor what measures the medical staff will take to prevent clotting. The risk of DVT after hip or knee replacement surgery is higher and requires anticlotting medication. Post-surgical care includes wearing compression stockings on the lower legs, and moving around as quickly as possible to keep blood from pooling and clotting.

The best defense as always is prevention. Take a daily walk to decrease your risk. When I drive, or ride long distances, I do squats at each stop. I don’t care if I’m in a gas station or standing out front of it, I do ten squats in Dunkin Donuts with an audience. (My husband has the app on his phone to find every possible Dunkin Donuts on the east coast).

But if you know me, you know I’ve always been accused of being a show off. No shame. Who cares, I’ll never see these folks again, right?

Natural Cure Worked for My Eyes in 2 Days (Previously Prescribed Steroid Drops)

Fifty dollars for .5 ounces of steroid drops may have been necessary last time I got that infection but this time, not.

EYE CLEANSING

Maybe I didn’t have the same problem this week, but years ago my eyes got infected with Herpes Simplex (no, not the kind of Herpes you’re thinking of). I had been in the ocean and chlorinated pool without sunglasses for at least 5 days in south Florida. Then drove many, many miles with the air conditioning blowing on me. By the time I reached the southern tier of New York State, I was in serious pain. My eye balls felt like they were being squeezed in a pressurized orb.

I had to see a specialist as soon as possible. I was prescribed the costly steroid drops and they did the trick. It was a serious infection and I’m sure the drops were necessary.

This week, I drove about 400 miles with the sun glaring into my left eye. Even with sunglasses, I was feeling that pressure the next day, which reminded me way too much of the former days when that unbearable pain sent me to the expensive cure. Despite the passing years, the memory of that pain was VIVID.

I had been using distilled water and vinegar to help my cataracts. Would that possibly be safe to use with this possible infection? I woke up the next morning with lots of mucous in my left eye which was stuck shut. I washed my eyes with tap water and used an eye dropper of the vinegar and distilled water cleanse. It did soothe that irritation and dryness.

Each day I continued those drops and the pressure around my eyes was almost gone in 3 days. The mucous cleared up. I can’t help feeling I may have saved myself a serious infection, $50.00 for drops, and a doctor’s visit, that is if I could have found someone to look at me on the weekend.

Am I saying don’t go to the doctor’s office when you have a problem? NO, I’m am not. Okay, then, what is the moral of this story?

DO YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO WHEN NO DOCTOR IS AVAILABLE?

Take care of your eyes on a regular basis. Cleanse them with salt water rinses.

#1 When driving in the sunny south, be sure you have the right sunglasses

#2 When driving in bright sunshine, stop and let your eyes rest for 30 minutes or until they feel less strained and pray for some clouds.

#3 There are temporary stick-on tinted window covers.

There are many natural cures that can keep you from racing to the doctor’s office or the hospital. If you were applying to be a missionary to a place where there are no nearby hospitals, you would learn what to do without the medical professionals that you rely so heavily upon in the western world. You would have supplies on hand that you could administer yourself.

If you are reading this blog, you very well may be a person who has ginger, lemon or healing essential oils on hand for such occasions.

Want to learn more about self-care and natural cures?

Want to save your body from the damage caused by too many antibiotics? Want to learn how to use earthy, supernaturally-provided, home-grown plants like garlic and oregano, or oils that can save money and destruction to your temple?

What would you do if someone spills boiling water on your child? How would you treat your neighbor’s snake bite if you didn’t have a nearby hospital? What if you were gardening and got bit by a brown recluse spider? Be prepared. Learn more right now.

DO YOU KNOW HOW TO GET BY WITHOUT ANTIBIOTICS?

What’s going to happen when antibiotics are so over used that they no longer work?

Here’s a quote from The Truth About Cancer:

               When antibiotics no longer work, knowledge of ancient

healing traditions that cultures around the world have

relied on for 1,000s of years before the rise of

“modern medicine” will once again be PRICELESS.

Is there any need to drop a bomb on an ant hill? Is there a more sensible way to handle those little guys without mass destruction of everything around them?

Same with infections in your body. Antibiotics are like dropping a very destructive bomb on you.

They destroy good bacteria as well as bad, thereby leading to the resistance of antibiotics. This opens the doors for a common infection to cause death. Let’s not let that happen.

Learn more about natural remedies here at this blog. Visit www.hideoushealthhabits.com often and protect yourself and the world around you.

Today is day four and my  eyes  feel very much back to normal . I’m still using the drops. Today I’m going to the beach but I  will protect my eyes  and only stay for a short visit.
