Do You Need A Lube Job?

Introduction:

How long would your car last if you neglected the maintenance?  Would you feel it of little importance to fill up with gas before going on a long trip?  And what sort of mileage would you get if your tires were under inflated?  If you didn’t get a lube job and rust protection for the winter, would your doors not squeak, and your floor not eventually fall out from under you?  If you didn’t change the oil, how long before your car breaks down?

Well…  Not much worry your car will fall apart because an engine light will go on at the first sign of trouble.  And we know what to do to avoid problems, and even come equipped with roman candles, a blanket, a cell phone, and even join The: AA association, and carry a number for a reliable tow truck service, just in case!

So why is it we take such good care of our cars,  and yet neglect the care and maintenance of our own bodies?  Is it in hopes our cars will get us to an incompetently staffed, crowded, low-budget Hospital in time?  We wouldn’t even think of putting used oil in our cars, yet we call last nights pizza slice breakfast!  We keep our cars temp. down with radiator fluid, yet do nothing to prevent ourselves from blowing out tops at the slightest provocation.  We wouldn’t put sugar in our gas tanks, yet load our bodies up with it without even a second thought.

The purpose of this blog, is to inform you of the various things we can to maintain the quality of our health through various sites I’ve researched for myself, and assure you that I wouldn’t ask you to take anything I wouldn’t take for myself.  The idea here, is that nature provides us with natural curative effects, as opposed to Doctors just masking symptoms to insure you’ll keep coming back, in much the same way a Mechanic would set one problem in the making while relieving you of another.

Naturally, there are ‘Nay Sayers’ : people with very little faith in anything trying to rain all over your parade.  Look at it this way.  When it comes to something as all important as your health, finding out what works for you, should be given a little more priority than your car because, how are you going to drive it if you’re dead?

Epsom Salts

http://www.saltworks.us/salt_info/epsom-uses-benefits.asp

Actually, it’s not salt at all, but magnesium!  The curative effects of epsom salts has been well documented for centuries.  You’ll find it at your local supermarket for less than a drug store will charge you.  The name comes from Epsom England, after people found that soaking in a hot water spring there, amazing curative effects were noted for much of what ailed them!  Take a gander at this sight for usage, and just what this miraculous substance can do when added to your bath water.

Milk Thistle

http://www.saltworks.us/salt_info/epsom-uses-benefits.asp

It’s no secret that so many of us have greatly abused our livers (The largest filtration system in your body), with enough alcohol to drown a herd of Buffalo!  But did you know that this unusual plant handles a lot more than sclerosis when it comes to diseases of the liver.  May I add that taking this, or any of these things, is no excuse to keep leading the lifestyle that caused the problem in the first place…

Turmeric

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2015/05/04/curcumin-turmeric-benefits.aspx

Turmeric contains a substance called ‘curcumin’.  This is the active ingredient that has had some measured success in the treatment of cancer of all things!  It’s available in pill form.  Then again, everything is!  You can buy it much cheaper at your supermarket in a vegetable form that’s a cross between a hunk of ginger and a carrot, or in powder form on the spice rack.

Liquid Chlorophyll

http://liveenergized.com/alkaline-diet-tips/health-benefits-of-liquid-chlorophyll/

I can’t say enough about this stuff!  Zehrs carries it that I know of.  Since it is so close to the hemoglobin molecule in blood, it ensures healthy, red, blood cells.  In fact, it is the same as hemoglobin except that it swops out iron for magnesium at its center.  It also balances your PH: if your body is too acidic, you’ll develop cancer.  So an ounce of prevention is truly worth a pound of cure in this case.  It also boosts energy levels and acts as a gentle detox. It’s the basis for how all life on Earth started!  Read all about it!

Ionized Water

http://www.freedrinkingwater.com/water_health/health2/health-benefits-from-drinking-ionized-water.htm

I have a ‘Zero Filter’, and one of its 5 components is an ionizer for your water.  Many may wonder just what ionization does.  And the answer is: ‘Nothing!’  LOL!  All it does do, is keep your water’s PH level at exactly 7…  That means: ‘Neutral.’  Not alkaline and not acidic.  That’s not what you’ll be interested to hear on this page though.  There’s a video about all the contaminants that is in bottled and tap water. 

This guy rattles off over a hundred of them, and I think you should listen.  It will make your ears perk, that’s for sure!  The rest is just hype to sell his product at a ridiculously outlandish price…  You can skip that part.  He makes a point that there is no minerals left after filtration systems are through with them.  However, multivitamins are loaded with them.  And much cheaper to buy!  DAH!  Silly sales pitch…

CoQ10

http://www.lifeextension.com/Magazine/2015/4/CoQ10-Wars/Page-01

This is the food of mitochondrial DNA!  The body doesn’t naturally produce it.  However, The DNA at the nucleus of a blood cell is well protected from free radicals and oxidative stress by a tough membrane that won’t let any harmful substance in.  Mitochondrial DNA however, (your cells built-in factory) surrounds the nucleus, and is therefore vulnerable to attack and needs CoQ10 so that the cell will be healthy, and insures its full life-span of three months, not to mention how it protects your heart in a major way!

PQQ

http://www.alsearsmd.com/2015/03/the-most-promising-cancer-fighter-in-years/

Also available at Zehrs, if CoQ10 ensues healthy cells, PQQ actually builds new mitochondrial DNA in dying cells!  Actually, CoQ10 and PQQ work in tandem to protect the two most vital organs in your body:  Your heart, and your brain!  Taken twice daily, 300 mgs.of CoQ10 coupled with 20 mgs. of PQQ is all that is needed for full protection.  And the two will run you $90 a month in combination.  If you double up on them both, PQQ will move from the brain to eventually cure your nervous system as well!  Be sure, if anything else, you read about these important enzymes and how they work together!  vitamin C for instance initiates 2 enzymes, where-as PQQ initiates over 5000!

Omega 3

http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/61-health-benefits-omega-3-fatty-acids

Not to mention fighting bi-polar disorder, Parkinson’s disease, and Old Timers, among just a few of the diseases that rear their ugly heads with more advanced age, if you don’t take it in supplement form, along with fish three times a week (Wild Pacific Sockeye Salmon and Sardines preferably), your brain will actually shrink with age!  Hear are 61 health benefits that this natural substance provides for…

Oxidative Stress and Free Radicals

http://www.nutrex-hawaii.com/oxidative-stressfree-radicals

There’s little sense in explaining about all of these miracle enhancements, if you don’t know why you must take them.  Is there?  Here is a small page that gives you the general rundown.  Now I’m not suggesting you take any of the things I’ve listed above: merely that you don’t put it in your car!  LOL!

Some may suggest that some or all of these things prevent sentience (cell suicide) in the body, there-by actually triggering cancer.  I’m 63 years old, so I have nothing to lose by experimenting upon myself.  I just don’t see ‘cell death’ as the road to extending life either.  Fell free to carry out your own research and make your own decisions accordingly.  I simply caution: ‘Nothing ventured, nothing gained!’  I think what you should really be asking yourself is: ‘Do You Need A Lube Job?’

Don’t breathe: Oxygen Kills…

Introduction:

I was going to call this: ‘How to lead a good life’, but that might be misleading…  No need to look for trouble, it will find you!  The purpose of this entry, is to define the connection between staying young, and staying enthusiastic about living: because really, you can’t do one without the other.  Be prepared therefore, for a somewhat extensive introduction for a somewhat needful topic.  In fact, this whole post may skirt about so much preparation, as to consume this entire freaking entry!  fortunately for you, I don’t give a spit!  In this case, necessity is the mother of my intention.

In past articles concerning life or death, (there’s only the two choices) I’ve tried to emphasize that if you just try, anything is possible, BUT NOBODY EVER LISTENS TO ME!  So…  Greater emphasis on how to control the A-Bomb that seems to be exploding your guts all over my screen, seems to be in order…  We must shed our bad habits, and nuns, so that we may see the reasons to work on both physical, and mental prowess with greater gusto, (gusto?  What’s that?  An Italian wind?) so that the urgency of self-preservation become more real, with tangible results, making themselves a parent!  LOL!  And what better way to do that but through my own practice experience.

We all confront ourselves with the question, whether we’ll admit it or not, of whether or not God truly exists at all…  Scientists see a series of haphazard events, not so uncommon throughout the rest of the universe as to how and why life started.  If that’s true, and you only have this one chance, wouldn’t you want to take in everything you possibly can understand about the wide, wonderful world before you actually bite the dust, buy the farm, kick the bucket, find the subway…

And if God does exist?  I seem to recall Adam and Eva Braun, standing in: ‘The Garden of Hedonism’, refusing God’s gift of ‘Ever Lasting Life’, stating that we could accomplish that for ourselves, and God saying something like: ‘Go for it!’ and initiating a kind of ‘non-interference’ policy regarding human endeavor!  He didn’t laugh and say we’re full of spit!  Did He?  So…  It would seem by this, that God, a parent, Lea, has a good deal more faith in us, than we have in Him!  Either way, you’ve got a lot of work ahead of you!  And those who choose not to respect their life are also choosing not to respect God to!  Yes?

And we’re close!  Many in the medical profession believe that the person who will live to be 1000 years old, is already alive today!  So…  Part one here, is all about dropping our excess baggage, before we can even begin to slow the effects of aging!  It will be no easy task to abandon the CRAP we’ve come to know and love.  Perhaps even insurmountable when it all boils down to quitting zombie like drugs and fair weather friends.  The real friends would stay…  Maybe one, if that.

The Dream is Over!

_0008_Dalai Lama_1

What did John Lennon mean by: ‘The Dream is Over’?  Quite simply, he meant that we should learn to wake up and start facing things as they really are: perhaps his way of saying not to put all your eggs in the same basket.  We learn by doing, not by praying.  Funny how people are!  Huh?

I’ve heard a person brag about their new-found health because they had quit smoking.  At the same time, they refused to give up pot.  That’s like avoiding to be hit by a car, so you can be hit by a bus!  Just one average sized joint (about the size of a football stadium), has the carcinogens of 10 cigareets…  So…  Two joints equal a whole pack of cigareets, so who’s quit anything in actual fact?  We rationalize our way through life to feel better perhaps, but we’re only fooling ourselves!

I was a zombie too.  Yet when I quit smoking pot and cigareets, and quit drinking, it was like I’d opened my eyes to a whole new world around me!  I was much more aware of my surroundings, able to actually think and feel again, and my angst simply vanished into thick air!  I was alive and I knew it!  Praise Cheeses!

_0008_Dalai Lama_2

What say you now?  Does real change rest with the economy, education, global warming, immigration?  Or does it reside within each one, as a personal responsiblity to ourselves, and to everyone we encounter?  I’m not saying it will be easy!  It’s one of the hardest and scariest things to do in this life!  But it brings with it, love, peace, discipline, joy, understanding, and a much better altitude toward everything!

Yet there are those who will read this, and think I’m talking through my cap: dreaming the impossible!  They’ll see only flaws, and miss all the good parts because they accept nothing on faith or trust: believe nothing but the surface of things, only acknowledging weakness, not only barring themselves from giving love, but receiving it as well.  They will die alone, and be quickly forgotten because they never learned the one thing that could save them: ‘Compassion!’ Look it up…  And if you like surprises, Google it!

_0008_Dalai Lama_3

Self Discipline…

Self discipline requires patience: you should never give up, not even once!  For this may be a fall from which you will never recover!  And patience requires not only will power, but a constant presence of mind, that you have a goal to achieve: and one after that, and one after that, and so on, until you become the person you wish to be.  Patience also requires faith and trust in yourself to begin saying: ‘No!’ permanently to falsehood, and: ‘Yes!’ permanently to achievement…  And the greater the reward, the longer it takes to achieve it.

_0008_Dalai Lama_4

There’s that dirty ‘self discipline’ phrase again!  And that stupid: ‘I have the word SUCKER tattooed on my forehead!’ compassion, has also raised its ugly head!  Tolerance means:  I LOVE YOU!!   And I’m going to put my hand into this burning fire until you say YOU LOVE ME…  …  …  …  ALRIGHT i HATE YOUR GUTS!!’ – Frank Goshen imitating Kirk Douglas.  That’s how difficult holding onto tolerance can be!  But if you lose it, your antagonizer has won!  If you must, think of them as a pesky irritant you will one day whack with a fly swatter.  Meanwhile, be tolerant!  Tolerance, as you may have guessed by now, is why you must develop patience first.  Forgive, and you will be forgiven!  Put your heart into it…

What’s all this have to do with the title?  Well, when you exercise, you take in more oxygen.  And the more oxygen you take in, the more free radicals it makes in your body, until it overwhelms your body’s defenses and does damage to your DNA.  When enough damage is done, you die.  The technical term for it is called:  ‘oxidative stress.’

So you see?  I didn’t lie!  Stop breathing now!  LOL!  This leaves us hopefully prepared for part 2, which promises to be much more interesting for you I trust.  Meanwhile, contemplate what I’ve said here and of what significance it has for you.  Have a whopping great day, and remember: Don’t breathe: Oxygen Kills…  Any queries?

PQQ

It really gives you a Buzz!

Hi friends…  Are you smoking more pot but enjoying it less?  Have all your brain cells said: ‘That’s OK, we’re constantly stoned anyway…’  Do you feel like there’s a hole in your pocket the size of Northern Albuquerque?  Well, what you need are more vigorously receptive brain cells!  I give you PQQ, along with everybody else who reads this, but you’re still special!  OK?  Take one capsule of these babies, and your brain will light up like a Crismiss tree!  You will notice right away, that your brain cells are getting more oxygen; It’s because 10 mg. (1 capsule) of PQQ twice daily, couped with one 200 mg. capsule of co- efficient Q-10 twice daily (Cuz they don’t sell 300 mg. bottles of the stuff), release people who suffer from Depression especially, to think clearly, remember everything, plan ahead, take action, invent, make spontaneous decisions, feel happy and confident, just like the old you!

That’s not all it does…

Or perhaps you’d prefer to just have your Doctor put a band-aid on it?  Instead of turning me into a thoughtless zombie, this PQQ stuff actually revitalizes your brain so you can think again!  Now I’d call that a cure for depression.  Wouldn’t you?  All kinds of inventive ideas come up to solve problems now as well!  It also prevents the onset of Old-Timers Disease, Parkinson’s, Delirium, and basically any age related disease!

Here’s how.

And here is an except about how PQQ effects depression:  

Oxidative Stress and Mitochondrial Dysfunction

Brain tissue is particularly susceptible to oxidative damage due to its high concentrations of phospholipids and the exhaustive metabolic rate among neurons. A growing body of research suggests that oxidative stress contributes to depression and other brain-related disorders (Hovatta 2010). This is thought to result from either an increase in damaging reactive oxygen species, a decrease in antioxidant defense mechanisms, or a combination of the two. These mechanisms become especially important with advancing age (Wolkowitz 2011).

Newer research sheds light on the critical role of mitochondria and neurotransmission and mood regulation. Mitochondria are the “powerhouses” in each cell that generate energy. In an intriguing study, researchers measured the content of mitochondrial DNA within white blood cells in aging patients who were depressed, and in an age-matched group who were not depressed. The subjects with depression had significantly fewer mitochondria than non-depressed controls, leading researchers to suggest, “mitochondrial dysfunction could be a mechanism of geriatric depression” (Kim 2011). In a similar study, greater numbers of mitochondria in peripheral cells were associated with improved cognitive function in healthy elderly women (Lee 2010).

Preliminary research suggests that two nutrients, coenzyme Q10 and acetyl-L-carnitine, which support mitochondrial function, may influence depression. A small study of 35 depressed patients in comparison to 22 healthy volunteer controls showed that plasma CoQ10 levels were significantly lower in the depressed patients. Levels were also lower in treatment-resistant patients, as well as those with chronic fatigue (Maes, 2009).

Several studies of geriatric depression have investigated acetyl-L-carnitine (Pettigrew 2000). One study compared treatment with acetyl-L-carnitine to the medication amisulpride, an antipsychotic medication commonly used to treat depression. In 204 patients with chronic depression, both acetyl-L-carnitine and the pharmaceutical drug improved symptoms (Zanardi, 2006). Acetyl-L-carnitine also has been found to relieve depression and improve quality of life in patients with liver disease (Malaguarnera 2011), and to ease depressive symptoms significantly in patients with fibromyalgia (Rossini 2007).

Another nutrient, pyrroloquinoline quinine (PQQ), is an enzyme involved in the generation of new mitochondria and the maintenance of antioxidant defense systems (Chowanadisai 2010; Rucker 2009; Tachaparian 2010). Supplemental PQQ has been shown to increase mitochondrial activity levels and to be neuroprotective in animal models (Bauerly 2011; zhang 2006; Zhang 2009). Since fewer mitochondria have been observed in depressed patients (Kim 2011), PQQ may be supportive in this population.

To encapsulate…

Let’s just put it this way; Vitamin C triggers 4 enzymes in your body.  PQQ triggers 20,000!  For the low, low price of just $60 a month, Canadians can now get both of these nutrients that work in co-operation with each other. You can find co-Q-10 in the regular vitamin Isle, at Zehrs ( 200 mg. tablets).  The PQQ, you will find in the ‘health products’ section, usually beside their Pharmacy.  The surprising thing is, the younger you start taking this stuff, the longer you will live.  No!  Not just because you’re younger!  Larger doses of PQQ extend out from the brain and restores nerve damage!  I’ve been waiting for a long time for this stuff to hit Canada! 

Disclaimer:

Please contact your General Practitioner to make certain your medication does not conflict with PQQ or it’s co-efficient: Q-10;  for instance, statins or blood thinners may result in certain side effects…
