.....Raw Chshews...one of my favorite and now I know why.

After having cancer some 37 years ago, I have always loved almonds...but I have also fallen in love with Cashews..  Here is some great info concerning my latest addiction...RAW Cashews!!!  
 
Nutritional  Benefits of Raw Cashews
  
Cashews are actually the seed of a fruit called the cashew apple . Cashews are never sold in the shell because the shells contain a caustic resin. Raw cashews can be eaten as a snack or tossed into salads. 
.
BASIC NUTRITION
One oz. of raw cashews, approximately 28 g, contains 157 calories. In a 1-oz. serving, there are approximately 5 g of protein and 9 g of carbohydrates, of which 1 g is fiber. One oz. of cashews has 12 g of fat, including 2.2 g of saturated fat, 6.7 g of monounsaturated fat and 2.2 g of polyunsaturated fat. Most of this fat is in the form of heart-healthy oleic acid. The fat content also includes 2,179 mg of omega-6 and 17.4 mg ofomega-3 fatty acids . Cashews are a cholesterol-free food and are low in sodium, containing only 3 mg per 1-oz. serving.

MICRONUTRIENTS
Cashews are high in magnesium, with 83 mg in 1 oz., about 20 percent of the daily recommended intake. Other minerals in raw cashews include iron, potassium, phosphorus, manganese, calcium, copper, selenium and zinc. Vitamins in raw cashews include vitamins K, B6 and E, pantothenic acid, folate, niacin and thiamin.

PHYTOCHEMICALS
Raw cashews are high in phytosterols, which lower LDL cholesterol and may help prevent cancer. The antioxidant carotenoids beta-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin, lutein and zeaxanthin are present in cashews. Cashews also contain phenols including phenolic acids, flavonoids and stilbenes. Proanthocyanidins in cashews provide further antioxidant activity.


HEALTH BENEFITS
Cashews, along with other nuts, help provide protection against coronary heart disease, diabetes and gallstones. Nut consumption two or more times a week is also linked to a reduced risk of weight gain, explains World's Healthiest Foods. The monounsaturated fat oleic acid found in cashews lowers blood triglyceride levels and boosts heart health. The high antioxidant levels in cashews may be protective against a wide range of diseases, including cancer, stroke, heart disease and immune disorders.

MILK does NOT do a BODY good.

 Here is some great information about Milk...as per Dr. Kradjian, 
MILK does NOT do a BODY good..
Please read and decide for yourself.
 It has been my understanding for many years now, that cows milk is not for human consumption, but rather..for a calf to fatten up to 400lbs in less that a year..
Please click on the link to read the article in full.  
I have only put pieces in below.

THE MILK LETTER : A MESSAGE TO MY PATIENTS
Robert M. Kradjian, MD
Breast Surgery Chief Division of General Surgery,
Seton Medical Centre #302 - 1800 Sullivan Ave.
Daly City, CA 94015 USA

"MILK" Just the word itself sounds comforting! "How about a nice cup of milk?" 
The last time you heard that question it was from someone who
cared for you--and you appreciated their effort.

The entire matter of food and especially that of milk is surrounded with 
emotional and cultural importance. Milk was our very first food. If we
were fortunate it was our mother's milk. A loving link, given and taken. 
It was the only path to survival. If not mother's milk it was cow's milk
or soy milk "formula"--rarely it was goat, camel or water buffalo milk.
...   http://www.notmilk.com/kradjian.html  <to read full article, click here. 
 
 SUMMARY
To my thinking, there is only one valid reason to drink milk or use milk
products. That is just because we simply want to. Because we like it and
because it has become a part of our culture. Because we have become
accustomed to its taste and texture. Because we like the way it slides
down our throat. Because our parents did the very best they could for us
and provided milk in our earliest training and conditioning. They taught
us to like it. And then probably the very best reason is ice cream! I've
heard it described "to die for".

I had one patient who did exactly that. He had no obvious vices. He
didn't smoke or drink, he didn't eat meat, his diet and lifestyle was
nearly a perfectly health promoting one; but he had a passion. You
guessed it, he loved rich ice cream. A pint of the richest would be a
lean day's ration for him. On many occasions he would eat an entire
quart -and yes there were some cookies and other pastries. Good ice
cream deserves this after all. He seemed to be in good health despite
some expected "middle age spread" when he had a devastating stroke which
left him paralyzed, miserable and helpless, and he had additional
strokes and died several years later never having left a hospital or
rehabilitation unit. Was he old? I don't think so. He was in his 50s.

So don't drink milk for health. ................

Most of the people on this planet live very healthfully without cows' milk. 
You can too.

It will be difficult to change; we've been conditioned since childhood to think 
of milk as "nature's most perfect food." I'll guarantee you
that it will be safe, improve your health and it won't cost anything.
What can you lose?

Body Wise International to Pay over $3.5 Million to Settle Federal and State Deceptive Advertising Charges for “AG-Immune” Dietary Supplement

Did you know....  Body Wise Intl. was fined $3.5 million....Why?  Well... for the reasons listed below.  http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2005/01/bodywise.shtm 


This is what one Body Wise user wrote....

Allergies
I couldn’t be more excited about AG-Immune™! My daughter has had severe allergies since she was six months old. . . . I often had to miss work to care for her. Then Body Wise introduced AG-Immune and I began adding two capsules a day to her applesauce. I couldn’t believe the difference in her! No more sneezing, no more runny nose, and now she can play outside almost all day.”
(A “Consumer Notice” identical to that set forth in Paragraph 12(m)
appears in small print at the bottom of the page). (Exhibit E-2)
If you go to this link, you will see more claims just like this one.

I have included a few more things concerning the fine...  When you search for information on Body Wise, you will never find anything of a negative nature but this lawsuit.  

Isn't it funny....Someone says they had great results on Body Wise and the owner of Body Wise gets taken to court for having a product that people love and a product that works!

24 years of excellent products, 24 years of integrity, 24 years of people getting results...but cannot talk about it...

For me...16 years of products that work...  Healthy Lifestyle, Daily Exercise, plenty of water and Body Wise...  My choice for LIFE!

For Release: January 18, 2005
Defendant Body Wise and its consultants recommend that consumers seeking specific information about the use and benefits of AG-Immune in the treatment, cure or mitigation of a wide variety of serious diseases or conditions, including weakened immune function, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, candida albicans, arthritis and rheumatism, infection, hepatitis C, colds and flu, sinusitis, HIV/AIDS, heart disease, lupus, and cancer, purchase these materials from defendant Body Wise or its consultants. Information on how to order these materials is also available on Defendant Body Wise’s Internet web site,
www.bodywise.com.
http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2005/01/bodywise.shtm

MAKE BODY WISE YOUR CHOICE FOR LIFE!!  
and...MAKE IT YOUR CHOICE FOR THE PEOPLE 
YOU LOVE!

Questions and Answers about AIE10
What scientific methods are used to determine the presence of immunoactive molecules in Ai/E¹º that support cytokine pathways?
This is accomplished through a combination of laboratory tests that include electrophoresis, mass spectrometry, tissue cultures, and molecular function analysis.

What specific clinical measurement has been applied to such extracts?
Clinical and laboratory studies are available for download. See Research page.

What is an immune modulator?
Immune Modulation is a natural and effective regulated immune response that involves many aspects and components of the immune system through recognition, response, feedback and memory. This is an ordinary activity of healthy immune function.

How does "Modulation" differ from "Stimulation?"
There is a significant distinction between stimulating and modulating. Modulation is a natural process. That is not necessarily true of stimulation. Stimulation typically causes some portion of the immune system to experience a functional increase or "spike" for a short period of time. This increase is often followed by a reversal or balancing adjustment by the immune system to the old level or even lower. An immune modulator has the ability to both up-regulate, or down-regulate immune system activity as needed.

Should I take other nutritional supplements with Ai/E¹º or multiple products containing Ai/E¹º at the same time?
Certainly. Take whatever supplements you consider appropriate.  Ai/E¹º is not know to interfere with any other dietary supplement.

Can I take Ai/E¹º products for a long period of time?
There are now many people who have taken Ai/E¹º products continuously for many years with no reported ill effects or any apparent loss of immune support. Ai/E¹º is non-toxic and considered safe for life long consumption. Continued use appears to provide continued support.

If you googled ... "Food Related Illness" you would be shocked... and a 14 year old burger.

I know.... I know..... but it taste good!!!  Well, how does sick taste...?

Emotions, bone health, energy are all related to what we eat...  The longer I am away from my favorite Cheese Danish, the less desirable it looks to me...in fact, now when I look at that yummy morning coffee partner, the Cheese Danish, all I see is a sugar serge and fat added to my body.  The many diet cokes I use to drink, I taste it now and all I taste is Chemicals...and they have a lot of them...as well as leaching calcium from your bones and depleting your immune system..if you have one at all.

Sugar plays such havoc on your energy and emotions... When my
daughter was a teenager, I remember I could see sugar in her eyes...her pupils would be dilated looking like she had done drugs...well she had for her..it was sugar! Often she looked wasted but all it was was too much sugar...For her, it is not a good thing.

I hear it said, it is too expensive to eat healthy....  REALLY?  My answer to that is.... NO IT IS NOT!  You just have to know what to eat and learn how to prepare them..  I would love to help with healthy cooking and suggestions...

And God Forbid....If you drive thru fast food for the convenience, then be prepared to stay up with you sick child...being there is few to no nourishment in fast food.  I will give you a little assignment... Go to the famous McD. and buy a hamburger, leave it out for 2-3 months...pay attention, you will not see any mold, change in color or even size, it will be hard but it will look the same as the day you bought it.  If that doesn't scare you, I am not sure what will.

Check out the below story.....  
A man apparently was going to keep the burger around for one month, then forgot about it…until he pulled it out of his pocket 14 years later. 

OMG EW WHY DON’T YOU CHECK YOUR POCKETS.
 Buyer be ware... and please be smart... 
It might taste good today, but it will not tomorrow.
 Below is a search I did ...  "Food Related Illness"
 To better quantify the impact of foodborne diseases on health in the United States, we compiled and analyzed information from multiple surveillance systems and other sources. We estimate that foodborne diseases cause approximately 76 million illnesses, 325,000 hospitalizations, and 5,000 deaths in the United States each year. Known pathogens account for an estimated 14 million illnesses, 60,000 hospitalizations, and 1,800 deaths. Three pathogens, Salmonella, Listeria, and Toxoplasma, are responsible for 1,500 deaths each year, more than 75% of those caused by known pathogens, while unknown agents account for the remaining 62 million illnesses, 265,000 hospitalizations, and 3,200 deaths. Overall, foodborne diseases appear to cause more illnesses but fewer deaths than previously estimated.
Click here to read more of this story....

So my friends, as a Cancer survivor of more than 36 years, a Wellness Advocate and Body Wise Independent consultant... I am so very serious and passionate about your health and mine..   I am 60 years old without any medication except my Thyroid hormone which is a replacement for having not Thyroid... No Meds!!! and I intend to keep it that way...you can too.
But wait!!!!
What about our children that have a 1 in 3 chance of getting diabetes before they are an adult...or should we discuss childhood obesity  or maybe how often our children are home sick...

WE CAN STOP THIS!!!
The time is NOW to be proactive... learn, live and thrive...not merely survive.

Blessings and Great Health!!!

Are You what YOU eat?

I ran across this little article on Anti-Aging...  It is an interesting read and gives you some Fruit to think about.  We all want to keep it young...  Is 60 the new 40?  I certainly hope so... I know, I do everything I can by taking my superior Body Wise Vitamins  but also...by eating nutrition rich foods..nothing package, preserved or with additives...at least as much as I can... 

We live in a Nutritionally depleted Society.. 

Lets do everything we can to keep it Nutritionally Rich!


For all the years, people have been searching for the elusive fountain of youth. One such famous search for the eternal youth was conducted by Ponce de Leon in the early 1500's. The mythical legend spoke of miraculous waters and those who drank from this miracle fountain would never grow old and would maintain the beauty of youth. The water source was never found and so the fountain of youth remained only a legend.

Although this miraculous forever young water was never found, the quest for a miraculous anti aging elixir that would maintain our youthfulness has not been quenched at all. Today, many over the counter skincare products and procedures claim to be able to reverse or slow down the aging process. These skincare products and procedures include using natural remedies, creams, injections and of course, the expensive plastic surgery.


However, the most natural of all the substances may be found in the normal foods that we eat everyday. These foods may be the natural solution to help in the quest for the anti ageing process. These organic foods can be broken down into two basic categories of: fruit and vegetables


Fruits - Certain fruits have demonstrated promising results in the aid of anti aging process. Those fruits include apples, strawberries and grapes. Researchers have discovered that some of these fruit products contain ellagic acid. Ellagic acid is a natural insect repellent substance found in various plants.


This type of acid has demonstrated the capacity to hinder the growth of tumors within the body. This hindrance process of tumor growth is accomplished by the ability of the acid to minimize the enzymes, within the body, that are utilized by the mutated cancer cells.


Other fruits that contain the precious anti aging ingredients are cantaloupe, peaches and apricots. These fruits contain the antioxidant properties that are known as lycopene. These antioxidants protect the health of body's cells from damage caused by the free radicals. In addition, these fruits have demonstrated their effectiveness in protecting certain organs of our body.


And apple aid in the anti aging process of the skin. Initial testing has shown that apples stimulate the production of collagen. The production of collagen is necessary for the skin to maintain its elasticity which can help minimize the wrinkling of the skin.


Vegetables - Some vegetables have also shown their ability to fight the anti aging process. Vegetables such as carrots, spinach and sweet potatoes have also demonstrated known antioxidant capabilities.


One other group of vegetables like soybeans and alfalfa sprouts, when eaten, that has demonstrated their effectiveness in blocking the production of particular types of enzymes. The anti-ageing substance found in these vegetables is known as genistein. Genistein inhibits the production of enzymes that have been identified as stimulants that are known to activate the cancerous genes.



Want to Look YOUNGER?  Remember, you are what you eat.  

Don't be an aging fruit...EAT the Fruit!  and..Take your Vitamins!

Yikes!!! I am turning Sixty!!! 37 years past Cancer.

I must say, I just created the below graphic and as I posted it on Facebook and read it over and over again...It still seems so strange to me... 37 years cancer free!!! And I must say, I never expected to deal with cancer again... 60 years old...Healthy....Active...Loving Life and Living!!!
Every one is looking for a cure for Cancer...  HELLO PEOPLE!!!  A healthy Immune System is the best start to stopping cancer..

What I know now is so much different than what I knew then... I know why I got cancer, I know the root to my cancer... I have made a point at staying healthy...this is no accident!  I have been very conscious of what I eat, the vitamins I take, staying active and implementing stress relievers...such as being on the beach to observe the beautiful sunsets...nearly every day.  When I lived on the Mississippi, when I lived in the desert..where ever I lived I have made this point..enjoy the beauties of nature...That is my stress reliever...
For some...SHOPPING!!! that only gives me anxiety!!! But, you do have to do what works for you!

So back to this cancer thing...at 23, it was a shock!!!  Two major surgeries, a year of treatment and then a 3 year process of recovery... Every year my birthday is the marker for this, being my birthday was just a week or so prior to the diagnosis...  I remember the day they said "You are cancer FREE!!!" just like yesterday... That was a very good day!!!  Turning 60 the end of August is another very good day... "Thank you Lord" that I am here to type my thoughts... I encourage you to do the same.

Life is not easy but that is part of living.  
My goal....LIVE! LOVE!!! ENJOY!!! BREATHE!!! and LAUGH!!!

    Choices....No more Aspartame!!!


    I have been with Body Wise for more than 15 years now...  When I first started on Body Wise I drank a ridiculous about of Diet Coke/Pepsi as did my family.   Through education that Body Wise offered, I learned what was good for you and what was bad and as I got more educated... this is one product I cut completely out of my diet.  Not easy at first, but after 3 - 4 weeks, when I would have a taste of a diet soda, it was shocking!!!  I could taste the chemicals that are a part of Aspartame..  

    Terrible! 

    There is an outrageous amount of information out there as to the dangers of this...  One thing I discovered, Aspartame remains on the market in full knowledge  that it is bad for all consumers    because of deep pockets..  They will not  take it off the market because now it is in all too many foods...and the worst?  Our children are  consuming it in sodas, foods and even popular vitamins..

    Read the Label!

    Knowledge is powerful...take back the power and learn more about these foods that are not good for you.  And...why not give it the chemical test..Stop it for a month, then take a sip...you will be shocked at how horrible that soda now tastes..  You too will be a believer...

    Make the Right Choice.

    ....Rear Ends...We all got one...Lets keep it that way.

     I just had to pass on this great article by Debbie Powers.... She is an expert...


    REAR ENDS
    Butts….Buns….Fannies….call ‘em whatever you want.  Our backsides are more exposed now that spring is here.  Shorts and swimsuits hide very little.  Those long winter days of consuming warm cookies, hot chocolate, or other cold-weather treats are now in full view of everyone at the pool, lake, or beach.  For this reason, I am going to spend the next few emails with suggested exercises to help tone those “now-exposed” body parts.  We all know that specific exercises will not necessarily reduce the fat you have accumulated on a specific area.  Only by reining in the calories and creating a calorie deficit day in and day out will the fat disappear.  Vigorous aerobic exercise burns calories and can reduce overall body fat.  However, exercises targeting a specific muscle group will tone those muscles and create a tighter look.  Combining the right nutrition with the right exercises will yield results.  For this reason, spring and summer are great times to enjoy the refreshing Body Wise Élancé shakes for a nutritious and low-calorie meal.    Exercising for great glutes can include both aerobic and strength work:
    1. Walking – walk very briskly so that you can push your glutes to the max. Add some hills or stairs.
    2. Jogging – like when walking, hit the hills or try some interval sprints.
    3. Biking or Spinning – increase the resistance so that you have to pump hard, or even stand to pump.
    4. Squats – stand with your feet shoulder width apart and lower into a squat as if you were going to sit into a chair. Keep the torso upright. Return to a standing position. Holding some weights increases the work.
    5. Lunges – step out with one foot and lower the back knee toward the floor. Make sure the front knee does not extend past the front foot. Push off with the front foot back to the starting position. Alternate lead foot. Hang onto a chair or wall if you need help with balance.
    6. Hip extensions – stand facing a wall, placing hands on the wall, and with a straight back push one leg out behind you as high as it can go (while keeping the leg straight). You can also do this down on the floor on all fours, and simply extending one leg back and up.
    Doing these exercises daily will help tone your glutes. Remember that the basic shape of our rear ends is dictated by our genetics. However, with some work, you can get a tighter look whether your butt is wide, flat, high, or low.

    BW Elance Shake or Instant Breakfast.?

    Long before I knew better and long before I liked coffee...I just love Carnation Inst. Breakfast coffee flavor. To me it was a healthy breakfast and it was yummy...   

    Fast forward....I have not drank an instant breakfast for years once I realized the sugar content...much less the Carbs..  Check it out..if you were to choose, which is your choice?   Same calorie count but look at the difference in where those calories are based, 
    27 g of Carbs vs 20 g of Protein  and 
    19 g of sugar vs 1 gram...  

    My  choice is clear to me...  BW Elance Frappe Shakes...YUMMMMM   and I do put coffee in the vanilla shake every so often for that childhood treat without the sugar.  Chocolate is good with a banana.

    Why Does Aie 10 work so well?

    Ai/E 10


    Why Does Ai/E10 Work So Well?  
    By David L. Bergsma
    President and CEO of Health Technology Resources I am often asked why Ai/E10 works so well in support of immunity. There are some real good reasons of which we have knowledge and some mechanisms that remain to be explored and understood. It is important to understand that dietary supplements largely depend upon interacting biologic processes and the condition of the infra-structure of the user.
    Ai/E10 has been shown in numerous studies and in clinical application to support a modulation of B, T and NK cell activity reactive to staph, strep, salmonella, pseudomas and e.coli, as well as extending gene expression across an important array of genes associated with innate and adaptive immunity as well as immune modulation. These are important benefits that help us move towards "dynamic balance" where the immune system operates at its most effective level.
    This is a place that will differ for each of us depending on our individual infrastructure and the effects of stress, diet, toxin and infection on our infrastructure at any time. When our immune system is working well we can expect it to do its job of recognizing, responding to and remembering foreign invaders. The benefits manifest in better health and are described accurately as effective immune system structure and function.

    Major Flu "Epidemic" in the US

    There is no better way to help ourselves in the face of the annual arrival of new viruses and evolving bacteria than to support the structure and function of our immune response. The immune response has three (3) imperatives....RECOGNIZE, RESPOND and REMEMBER. Supporting the execution of these imperatives should be a primary goal year 'round for all of us.
    Supporting the structure and function of the immune response is not the same as simply "stimulating" an immune response. Rather, we support the imperatives by supporting a "modulated" response.
    Ai/E10 is the only dietary ingredient shown to support true immune modulation in published scientific studies.
    The uniquely created reactive molecules included in Ai/E10 provide a specific means to directly supplement the immune communication molecules of the immune system responsible for immune signaling and memory functions and initiate a wide range of other cellular, immunological responses depending upon many environmental and systemic conditions. This is a safe, gentle and totally unique approach that yields a highly effective dietary supplement incomparably supporting both innate and adaptive immunity.

    The Secondary Infection

    This is from the MedlinePlus Medical Encyclopedia:
    Secondary infections are infections that occur during or after treatment of another pre-existing infection. They may result from the treatment itself or other changes and effects on the immune system. For example, a yeast infection that occurs after antibiotic treatment of a bacterial infection is a secondary infection. Bacterial pneumonia after a viral upper respiratory infection is another example.
    In my view, secondary infections are the bane of our planet. They strike quickly without warning while we are in a weakened condition and they can take a great deal of time to finally resolve. In fact, they can kill us and do kill many of us each year. When we hear the horror stories of people dying from exotic infections such as MRSA, we are most often hearing about people succumbing to secondary infection. The avoidance of secondary infection will improve the quality of everyone's life. We can do that most efficiently by maintaining a strong immune response. Ai/E10 contributes to building a strong immune response by supporting the cellular communication upon which the immune response relies in its efforts to recognize, respond and remember foreign invaders.
    No other product provides this unique dietary support to the structure and function of our immune system.

    The Best Kept Secret!!! CoQ10


    Why CoQ10 is Essential for Heart Health

    Coenzyme Q10 is the nutrient involved in generating 95% of the body’s energy. As we age, the amount of CoQ10 that our bodies naturally produce begins to drop. By the time you’re 35, your CoQ10 level can decline by 40%. Since your heart uses the most energy of any organ in your body, CoQ10 is an essential nutrient to keep your heart healthy and strong.
    Recent research indicates that CoQ10 may help increase energy, protect the heart, prevent migraine headaches, strengthen the immune system and improve exercise endurance.
    According to the Mayo Clinic, patients on statin medications (cholesterol lowering drugs like Lipitor) and with heart failure, diabetes, cancer, muscular dystrophies, Parkinson's disease and HIV/AIDS typically have low levels of CoQ10.
    What can you do if your levels of this heart-healthy energy “trigger” are low? CoQ10 is notoriously difficult for the body to assimilate from the food you eat, so the answer is to take a high quality supplement.


    More Heart Benefits with CoEnzyme Q10+
    CoEnzyme Q10+ from Body Wise is a pharmaceutical grade blend of three antioxidants that work better together to promote energy and cardiovascular health.
    CoEnzyme Q10 – Plays a vital role in the production of cellular energy and converting food into energy.*
    Vitamin E – This powerful antioxidant helps protect the cardiovascular system by reducing damage caused by free radical molecules.*
    Quercetin – Scientific studies suggest that this flavonoid, found naturally in fruits and vegetables, can help protect and repair cells, inhibit the oxidation or hardening of bad cholesterol, and reduce inflammation-causing enzymes.*
