Pregnant woman “L” on her 7th month had a terrible bout of UTI. She went off of her once healthy diet and devolved into her old junk food diet. Which led to consequences… Urinary Tract Infections aka UTI. She had headaches, bad feeling all over, terrible pain under her belly, pain in her hips, white discharge, crying, screaming in pain called the neighborhood midwife / hilot to help… thought she was giving birth… the usual health center mantra told her, go get a lab test done… we suspect it to be UTI, and from there they can give you some antibiotics? Duuhhh… no antibiotics for pregnant women.Continue Reading
A big bad combination of things has emerged into this enormous challenge leading up to today in the 21st century. That of sulfur deficiency / sulphur deficiency. Our body is supposed to be made up of some x% of sulfur, and since we are not creating sulfur in our bodies, this sulfur has to come from elsewhere, the food, the air, the water, the drinks. But unfortunately, in the 21st century, the sulfur cycle is broken, and because of global pollution and urban living, our body’s requirements for sulfur has increased tremendously with supplies of sulfur curtailed because our soils have been depleted of sulfur from over farming and the use of sulfur deficient fertilizers.
If you look at the nutrition data tables for your favorite vegetables or animal foods, you should see that cruciferous vegetables, land animals and some sea food such as scallops are supposed to have a lot of sulfur. That in the older 20th century assumptions, no one should be sulfur deficient. But that is not the case today in the 21st century. The soils are depleted of sulfur. Cumulative years of the wrong farming practices. The vegetables suffer from sulfur deficiency, the animals feeding on the land suffer from sulfur deficiency, we people at the top of the food chain suffer from sulfur deficiency.Continue Reading
The problem is how to feed the plenty of starving people, victims of Super Typhoon Haiyan / Yolanda. The answer is on the ground… the many felled coconut trees… inside is the pith, the “ubod” which can temporarily feed the millions of starving typhoon victims. Get the word out people, just give the people a couple of machetes so they can get all the ubod they need from the felled coconut trees.
The Facebook group The Primal Diet by Aajonus Vonderplanitz is abuzz the past 3 hours with news of the death of one of the greatest pioneers of the raw food movement… the father of the Primal Diet… Aajonus Vonderplanitz. Emails said Aajonus’ accidental death happened when he fell from the 2nd story of his house in Thailand when it gave way. Aajonus suffered a broken spine and internal bleeding and died.
Ah, refreshing change of shared hosting service for this website www.myhealthblog.org. I found the time to switch hosting where the database resides on one of those new SSD hard drives. SSD stands for solid state drive. Where the reputed read times are amazingly approaching that of random access memory.
Technology upgrade. This was not available in the old host. If this works out well I may move my other websites to SSD database hosting.
There will be more blogs to post. Much has progressed in the past month or so but I have been busy with work. I promise to catch up on blogging.
April 6 and 7 was my drive to and from Dingalan Bay in Aurora province. On the way I passed by a long bridge and noticed a picnic type resort of sorts below the bridge with hundreds of people enjoying themselves in a nirvana of joy at this enormous natural mountain spring water gushing from the foot of these Sierra Madre mountains where this river starts / begins. The water starts here. These people get first crack at it. Says so right here on google maps (green arrow):Continue Reading
I took pictures of the food we had lying around the house last January 11, 2013. Let’s play a game and try to guess what the pictures are. Name those food items. The fruits, the vegetables, the animal foods. Let’s me try out the new capabilities of this upgraded wordpress website.
Will update this post in a couple of days with the answers.
In the meantime, here are the photos:
