there is a lot of information on the list.
as I understand it, the whole issue is one of fatty acids.
trans fats and saturated fats cause your cell membrane to change the 3 dimensional build, missing fatty acids like omega 3 have the same effect. thereby makes glucose absorption difficult.
If I understand correctly, all you need to do is to consume no fats other than virgin cold pressed olive, coconut, and fish oil for some months.
research this further. at first if sounds mad. but after research it makes a lot of sense.
wishing you the best of health

I believe there are many things that help diabetics and I believe there may be more than one path to a cure. But to keep the cure you have to change how you eat and what you eat.

[AlternativeAnswers] New member -Parkinson's disease

 

Hello everyone. I have just joined this group. My mother has been diagnosed with the Parkinson's disease. She has been prescribed Carbidopa, which she has been taking for quite some time. This medication does not always help.

In addition to having the Parkinson's disease, having elevated blood pressure and being 83 years old, she does not sleep well at night. And, she needs help to get up to go to the bathroom. My brother has hired a woman to stay with her, but this woman needs more sleep than she is getting.

She says that my mother goes to the bathroom every hour and needs help to get up every time. She wants to get up almost every hour even when she is wearing a leek proof undergarment. Does anybody know if there is a way to help any of this? For two weeks my mother had been taking a medication that was supposed to make it unnecessary for her to urinate as frequently. She was going to the bathroom very frequently anyway.

[AlternativeAnswers] Sjogrens Syndrome

 

I have just received a diagnoses of Sjogren's. Not a happy camper obviously
and I come to you for natural suggestions. I have researched each of the
pharmaceuticals suggested and refuse to even give them a try. I would
appreciate any insight you might have regarding nutraceuticals/homeopathic
items that may enhance saliva production. I am using pharmaceuticals for the
dry eye issues and so far, feel comfortable with this choice. Thank you.

Abundant Blessings, m

Cynthia

[AlternativeAnswers] Dr Bate's weekly newsletter digest and editorial - 10-29-2011 - Whooping Cough - Stress

 

Whooping Cough Cases Triple In Suffolk County
<http://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=6BEwk&m=IcvtIDgiY3dBIj&b=v9NhJTCH5nlTQXv.oDqfTg>
From NBC News

There are already 179 reported cases in the county (may be because whooping
cough is now better diagnosed and because public awareness is higher? Where
have we heard this before? But they make up for that silly comment in the
next sentence. Another reason may be because more people are opting not to
have their children vaccinated )
The number of whooping cough cases have tripled in Suffolk County since last
year, according to the Suffolk County Health Department.
In 2010, there were only 54 reported cases of whooping cough. In 2011, there
were 179 reported whooping cough or pertussis cases.
One reason for the increase, according to Suffolk Health Commissioner Dr.
James L. Tomarken, may be because whooping cough is now better diagnosed and
because public awareness is higher.
Another reason may be because more people are opting not to have their
children vaccinated.
"It's a cyclical thing, sometimes we see pertussis in waves of three to five
years," said Tomarken. "We hope we have seen the worst but we just don't
know."
Whooping cough usually starts with cold symptoms, accompanied by a
persistent dry cough that could last weeks or even months. The bacterial
infection is spread through droplets in the air.
Of the 179 cases in Suffolk so far this year, almost 40 of the patients were
students in the Smithtown school district. In June 2010, nearly 40 people,
most of them students, contracted whooping cough.
According to Suffolk health officials, all those affected had been immunized
in the past, but immunizations are not 100 percent effective. The students
did develop less severe symptoms because of their prior vaccinations.
"Parents should make sure their children are getting booster shots," said
Dr. Tomarken. "And adults who are in contact with any child under one,
should also do the same."

(Dr Bate's comments:) Isn't it interesting that many of the affected were
vaccinated, but still caught it? That seems to be happening more and more,
PLUS the proven facts that children NOT vaccinated are healthier as a group
than those who were. The web makes lies by Big Pharma and the AMA show up
as such. When will the general public learn about the dangers of
vaccinations? Autism and depression are only two of the many health
problems caused by mineral toxicity. Taking large amounts (natural) of
ascorbic acid vitamin C takes out all minerals cheaply.

Hitting it big - two editorials this week.

*Stress...*
*A young lady confidently walked around the room while leading and
explaining stress management to an audience; with a raised glass of water,
and everyone knew she was going to ask the ultimate question, 'half empty or
half full?'..... she fooled them all... "How heavy is this glass of water?",
she inquired with a smile.** *
*Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.*
*She replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long I
hold it. If I hold it for a minute, that's not a problem. If I hold it for
an hour, I'll have an ache in my right arm. If I hold it for a day, you'll
have to call an ambulance. In each case it's the same weight, but the longer
I hold it, the heavier it becomes."

She continued, "and that's the way it is with stress. If we carry our
burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly
heavy, we won't be able to carry on."*
*"As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest
before holding it again. When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the
burden - holding stress longer and better each time practiced.

So, as early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don't
carry them through the evening and into the night.... pick them up tomorrow.
*
*Whatever burdens you're carrying now, put them down for a moment. Relax,
pick them up later after you've rested. Life is short. Enjoy it and the now
'supposed' stress that you've conquered!"*
*
1 * Accept the fact that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're
the statue!*
*2 * Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat
them.*
*3 * Always read stuff that makes you feel good..*
*4 * Drive carefully... It's not only cars that can be recalled by their
Maker..*
*5 * If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague*
*6 * If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was
probably worth it..*
*7 * It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a
warning to others.*
*8 * Never buy a car you can't push.*
*9 * Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you
won't have a leg to stand on.*
*10 * Nobody cares if you can't dance well.
Just get up and dance..*
*11 * Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late..*
*12 * The second mouse gets the cheese.
13 * When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.*
*14 * Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.*
*15 * You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world
to one person.
16 * Some mistakes are too much fun to make only once.
17 * We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and
some are dull. Some have weird names and all are different colors, but they
all have to live in the same box.
18 * A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour..
19 * Have an awesome day and know that someone thought about you today.*
*20 * It was me, your friend!*
**Save the earth -- It's the only planet with chocolate!* *
---
*Instead of "managing" your stress, how about losing a lot of it by using
my Neuroliminal Training. NT does what Neurofeedback does, but even better
and at a fraction of that cost - Guaranteed or your money refunded!.*

[AlternativeAnswers] Honoring All Hallow's Eve: Tips and Treats for a Healthy Halloween

 

Good Morning!

Honoring All Hallow's Eve: Tips and Treats for a Healthy Halloween

It is that time again. The time for all your ghosts, goblins and neighborhood witches to come a knockin'.

When finding treats for your guests, you may want to consider low- calorie, low-fat options. Snacks that are fun and good for your kid's health is a win-win situation. Halloween/holiday packaging has even become more creative in recent years to add to the enticement value. You may want to consider

Sugar-free gum
100% Juice boxes
Cheese sticks
Cheese and cracker snacks
Organic candied apples
Dark Chocolate treats
Popcorn or popcorn balls
Apples
Grapes
Bananas
Unshelled peanuts
Low sugar cookies, pumpkin muffins or peanut butter drops (see below)

There are great non-food treats you can offer such as rubber spiders or worms, stickers, baseball cards, balloons, crazy top pencils, crayons, colored chalk, comic erasers and whistles.

Make sure all your treats are individually wrapped. Even the non-food goods. If you buy in bulk, you can find great little gift bags you can fill and then close them up with a twist or steam seal. Tag your goodies with a note with your name and address. This eases the mind's of fellow parents.

Safety Comes First

Be sure your kid's costumes are flame-resistant. If there is a mask with the costume, be sure they have plenty of breathing room and make sure the mask does not obstruct their view. Comfortable shoes are important to avoid blisters and accessories should be kept to a minimum, the younger the child is.

Be sure and impose the basic rules:

1. If not accompanied by a parent, be sure kids travel in groups.

2. Keep on sidewalks as much as possible. If there are no sidewalks, stay to the extreme side of the road.

3. Carrying a flashlight or glowstick.

4. Reflective stickers can added to costumes and shoes.

5. Visit homes that you know. Most people will keep a light on the front porch as a welcome indicator.

6. Be sure to tell the kids to always be pleasant, courteous and thankful.

7. It is always a good precaution to examine all treats before letting your children eat them to be sure they have not been tampered with. Be sure packaged candies are unopened and fruits and vegetables are in good condition. Cut all fruit in quarters before opening.

8. If you are inviting guests, turn on your front light or decorate your front door to make it inviting to guests. Make sure your front door is not cluttered with objects that children may trip over. If you have pets, be sure they are secured away from the door.

9. Halloween parties at home can alleviate fears of your kids going outside, especially if it happens to be bad weather.

10. Remember: safety comes first.

Halloween Treats

These are some great suggestions that the kids can help you make, if you have kids. You can also have a great time making them yourself for your little guests (or even your big guests!)

Scary Pizza Faces

Let kids arrange sliced olives, green peppers, mushrooms, pepperoni, and other things on English muffins brushed with tomato sauce. Top with grated cheese for "hair" and heat in the microwave or oven until the cheese melts.

Bat Droppings: Peanut Butter Drops

1 jar reduced fat Peanut Butter
1 box confectioner's sugar

Blend 4 heaping tablespoons of peanut butter with 3 teaspoons confectioner's sugar. Add a little water of it is too binding. Then drop on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.

Ghoulish Ghosts: Quick Pumpkin Cupcakes

1 box regular yellow or vanilla cake mix, 2-layer-size
2 eggs
1 Tablespoon oil
2/3 cup canned pumpkin
1-1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 cup water or apple juice
1 can ready made frosting or Light Cool Whip

Decorations:
Canned low-fat vanilla frosting
Candy corn
Black or orange jelly beans
Black licorice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray each muffin cup with nonstick cooking spray or use paper cupcake liners. Blend the cake mix with the eggs, oil, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and the water or juice with mixer at low speed until moistened. Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Spoon into the prepared muffin pan. Bake 18 minutes or until done. Cool in pan completely before frosting. Pile the frosting/whip cream very high on the cupcake to resemble a ghost. Kids will love to decorate these cupcakes. Makes about 18 cupcakes.

Monster Brains: Halloween Cereal Balls

1/4 cup Smart Balance margarine or butter
1 package (10 oz.) marshmallows
2 Tablespoons orange-flavored gelatin
6 cups crisp rice cereal

[AlternativeAnswers] Honoring All Hallow's Eve: Intuition & Crystals to Enhance Mind Power

 

Good Morning!

Honoring All Hallow's Eve: Intuition & Crystals to Enhance Mind Power

Tuning in to any energy is the ability to quiet the mind, allowing your inner
self, or intuition, to perceive truth. By practicing this art, we develop a
sensitivity toward inner information and the ability to condition our mind to
listen on a much more subtle level. This developing can allow us the ability to
sense energy and actually perceive on an even more subconscious plane.

Techniques are vast and varied and include Meditation, Yoga, Qi Qong,
Visualization, Physical Exercise, Prayer or your own personal techniques, all of
which can be used in calming and clearing the mind and achieving clearer
perception. Greater self control and self balance, awareness, inner peace and
connective energy to the source of truth are all important in the path to
attunement.

As our minds are conditioned to listen in silence, responses come quicker and
clearer to us.

When we tend not to trust our intuition, there are two specific crystals which
can help.

Crystals Associated with Intuition

The power behind Earth's minerals can be felt the minute you put a crystal in
your hands or near your physical body. Crystals are the treasures of the earth.
These stones are filled with energy to be used. Some of the best crystals for
intuition include: Blue Lace Agate, Charoite, Hematite, Kyanite, Malachite,
Moldavite, Petalite, Phenacite and Tiger's Eye.

Blue Lace Agate Properties: Helps to focus on the inner source of love within
you that transforms and heals all wounds. Contains the qualities of flight, air,
movement, and grace. Highly inspirational when working with the inner self.
Works well with not only the Throat Chakra, but the Heart, Third Eye and Crown
Chakra. These stones (along with malachite) assist in left/right-brain balance.
Therefore, those who feel stuck in their logical, rational selves can rebalance
so that they may hear their intuitive voices.

Charoite Properties: The stone of transformation. Charoite helps seeing old
patterns with new possibilities. It is believed to open the heart, allow
inspiration, encourage service, and grants us the ability for seeing more
clearly (mentally, physically, psychically). It is believed that this stone
brings about faster healing. Some find it useful for entity release work. Most
effective on the upper centers of energy, which are the Heart, Brow and Crown
Chakra to transmute/lift us out of troubled or stuck emotions and most of all,
fear. This brings about vibrational change and therefore stimulates the Aura.
Use this stone for transforming negative energies into acceptance. Use Charoite
to assist in the foresight and ability to improve your intuitive vision.

Hematite Properties: This crystal is the most recommended stone for grounding
and is associated with the Root Chakra, by encourages ones survival instincts
and is centering. Hematite condenses scattered feelings, turns fuzziness into
mental clarity, enhances concentration, memory, practicality, helps those who
study, do bookkeeping, detailed work and helps with sound sleep. Considered the
symbol of life energy, hematite allows for more confidence, will power and
boldness. Helps us adjust to being physical. A protective stone and helps
bolster low self-esteem. Hematite is known to deflect negativity. It restores
equilibrium, stability and is also used for astral protection. It brings our
awareness back to the body and helps one maintain their sense of self.

Kyanite Properties: Kyanite is considered the "Earth Stone" due to its soothing
earth tone colors, as well as its grounding and tranquil nature. The healing
benefits depend on the color it comes in. Blue Kyanite is most effective when
placed on the Throat Chakra in order to open the throat for communication and
self expression. On the Brow (Third Eye) Chakra, it enhances psychic images,
foresight, consciousness and meditation. Kyanite is used to answer questions,
especially in imagery, such as in vision, dreams or written interpretations. It
brings out our natural ability to manifest things into reality via thoughts and
visualization.

Malachite Properties: Stimulates physical and psychic vision and concentration.
Use for the heart and solar plexus centers. These stones (along with blue lace
agate) assist in left/right-brain balance. Therefore, those who feel stuck in
their logical, rational selves can rebalance so that they may hear their
intuitive voices.

Moldavite Properties: Powerfully expands psychic abilities, channeling. On Heart
Chakra. Eases longing to leave earth. On pillow, brow, crown: Telepathic access
to spiritual laws, info from higher regions/places to help us and Earth to be
healthier and more spiritual.

Petalite Properties: Petalite is highly spiritual. It has been called the "stone
of the Angels " and will help one connect with one's guides. It is also said to
dissolve negativity and black magic spells. Petalite has been used on vision
quests for strength, protection, and peace. It will balance one's yin/yang
qualities as well as one's mind, body, and spirit. It also enhances one's
ability to feel energy in stones.

Phenacite: Properties: A powerfully loving, healing, spiritual stone. Clearer
stones intensely opens 3rd eye, Crown and Transpersonal Chakra as a white light
channel. Clairvoyance/spiritual communication, meditation, astral travel,

meridians and healing of other stones. It is a powerful stone for clearing and
activating the chakras, in particular, the Third Eye and Crown chakras. It helps
one to go further in meditation, and gives a deep awareness of one's inner
structures, the chakras in particular. Phenacite in general can be used to
amplify the energies of other stones used for healing, and to balance energy
within one.

Tiger's Eye: Properties: This stone is most recognized for bringing money,
psychic protection, courage, luck confidence, willpower, clear thinking and
speaking to show us the personal power in life that we have. Very versatile for
the Yellow/Solar Plexus and Crown Chakra. Tiger's Eye works on our mental plane
by amplifying thinking and manifesting what you think about. Helps separate
thoughts from feelings, more centered, less emotional. Tiger's Eye allows us to
recognize both our talents and our faults. It can reveal your true needs without
our self-serving or rigid mental attitudes getting in the way. Use Tiger's Eye
with malachite or pearl to benefit from their synergy for mental/emotional
balance and true understanding. This stone helps change anxiety, fear and
obsessiveness into practicality and logic. Has the grounding energy of the
earth, but is embellished with a glowing warmth. A stone for people who need
more confidence to accomplish their goals. Draws helpful people and material
things to the wearer. Centers energy and mental focus. This stone helps us to
find our closest version of perfectionism without obsessive behavior.

Honoring All Hallow's Eve

Halloween originated from the Pagan festival Samhain, celebrated among the Celts
of Ireland and Great Britain. Irish and Scottish immigrants carried versions of
the tradition to North America in the nineteenth century.

The term Halloween (and its alternative rendering Hallowe'en) is shortened from
All-hallow-even, as it is the eve of "All Hallows' Day",[1] also which is now
known as All Saints' Day. It was a day of religious festivities in various
northern European Pagan traditions, [2] until Popes Gregory III and Gregory IV
moved the old Christian feast of All Saints' Day from May 13 to November 1. In
the ninth century, the Church measured the day as starting at sunset, in
accordance with the Florentine calendar. Although All Saints' Day is now
considered to occur one day after Halloween, the two holidays were, at that
time, celebrated on the same day. Liturgically, the Church traditionally
celebrated that day as the Vigil of All Saints, and, until 1970, a day of
fasting as well. Like other vigils, it was celebrated on the previous day if it
fell on a Sunday, although secular celebrations of the holiday remained on the
31st. The Vigil was suppressed in 1955, but was later restored in the
post-Vatican II calendar.

Many European cultural traditions, in particular Celtic cultures, hold that
Halloween is one of the liminal times of the year when spirits can make contact
with the physical world, and when magic is most potent (according to, for
example, Catalan mythology about witches and Irish tales.)
