Labels That May Pop Your Eyes

Amberleigh CarterComment

Since I'm a native of Louisiana, I'll use POPEYES chicken as an example of what you are paying for and unknowingly choosing to put into your body.

I'm not sure why the ingredients need to contain every artificial food color under the sun, plus MSG, but there's no need to wonder why Americans suffer from heart disease, diabetes, obesity, cancer, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc., when their food supply contains these synthetic ingredients.  Our bodies can't handle it! 

"Experts" say, "Take out the fat, cut out the sugar, avoid gluten...." How about take out toxic and fake ingredients from your diet to not overburden your liver and the rest of your body?  The liver is responsible for handling blood sugar, manufacturing hormones, and ridding the body of toxins, and if it's constantly trying to understand what it is you just ingested, your body cannot possibly function correctly.    

The sad truth is that food-like products containing anything but nutrients are killing us.  Lab-made chemicals are contributing to all of the food allergies and diseases we see today that never existed before the genesis of fake ingredients.  The food industry has sadly become more interested in a paycheck than in our health.

Want to protect yourself?  CHECK THE INGREDIENTS LABEL if you want a chance at regenerating your body, and stick to eating real, nutrient-dense and healing foods.

Gluten-Free Does Not Equal Healthy

Amberleigh CarterComment

The term "gluten-free" has become very popular in today's society.

Not that I disagree with the thought of not ingesting gluten, for many reasons, but a better option would be to avoid grains.  In addition to grains containing gluten, a couple of more alarming points are that grains contain toxic polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) and phytic acid.

PUFAs (i.e., found in vegetable oils, grains, leafy green vegetables, margarines, etc.)

  • Lower the immune system
  • Are estrogenic
  • Inhibit protein breakdown
  • Lower energy metabolism
  • Increase inflammation and aging
  • Contribute to senility
  • Can lead to Leaky Gut Syndrome
  • Can lead to sterility/infertility
  • and so on.

In addition, phytic acid allows for poor bone health and can block the absorption of zinc and magnesium, two essential nutrients in creating an efficient metabolism. 

So, whether or not you may be "gluten-sensitive" or "gluten-intolerant", is less pressing than the issue of you being more "grain-aware".   Furthermore, beware of "gluten-free", processed products that contain a ton of preservatives, fake sugar, and other harmful ingredients.  You may be "gluten-intolerant", but your body is also "toxin-intolerant".  Coconut flour, rice flour, and the occasional organic Jasmine rice are acceptable, all in moderation. 

And remember, it is always best to eat real, whole, organic foods in the right ratios, at the right time, for your particular body.  After all, it takes life to give life.
