Re: Good fats, bad fats, VIRUSES, aging and stress syndromes.
NOW FOR THE BIG NEWS-
I spoke this week with the renowned world expert on fatty acids and degenerative diseases. Mary Enig, PhD. is a respected researcher in thefield of fats and oils, especially the hydrogenated, partially hydrogenated and trans fats. The latest findings coming down the research channels around the fall of this year will implicate all seed oils in the promotion of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, allergies, adrenal failure and stroke. The list of implicated oils includes canola, soy, corn, safflower, sunflower and all hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated fats and oils.
In the early 1900’s 25% of our fats came from seed oils including margarine and shortening and the rest from saturated, natural, no hormone, NOT CORN OR SEED FED, beef, eggs, poultry, pork and dairy. By the 1970’s this
proportion of seed oil intake had grown to 75% of daily fat totals with natural saturated fats reduced to 25% of totals.Changing from the safe, non-oxidizing saturated fats to the easily oxidizable polyunsaturated fatty acids, has precipitated the tremendous rise in degenerative diseases, all of which are associated with oxidative free
radical damage, and a higher need for all anti-oxidant vitamins. Reducing seed oils and using coconut milk or coconut oil as the staple of the diet is reversing viral loads in HIV, eliminating all types of Herpes
virus and reducing or preventing other viral diseases including the yearly ‘flus’ and measles. Animals fed natural (not processed) coconut and coconut oils were unable to grow tumors, malignant or benign. Coconut oil (as oil or in the coconut milk) lowers cholesterol if it is high and raises it if it is too low. Oil of coconut is anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal in the plant, in our gut and in our blood. In human HIV patients viral loads have decreased
from 950,000 to undetectable when just 1/3 can of coconut milk is consumed twice a day. The coconut oil or coconut milk must be un-preserved. Good brands are Thai Kitchen or Bangkok. Equivalents are 2-3 tablespoons of the unprocessed coconut oil daily or 1/3 can of the coconut milk twice a day (5 ounces twice a day) or 1/2 coconut steeped, mashed and eaten daily. Clients with hypo or hyper cortisol tests currently using this protocol are
showing an almost immediate response in adrenal restoration. With just the alteration of the thiamin plus B-complex plus coconut milk within a week day and night cycling of cortisol normalizes. Clients are more awake, mood
improves, energy greatly improves, sleep becomes normal without melatonin, Relaxer or any other aid. Phosphatidyl serine is not necessary. The coconut milk tastes great. If ‘fats’ bother your gall bladder stretch out the servings over more meals. High intake of seed oils contributes to gallstone formation but coconut oil or milk will normalize gallbladder function over time.
In studies in coconut eating countries metabolic rates in both men and women were found to be 25% higher than in the general US population. This protocol, if adhered to, will not cause weight gain unless you are underweight. If you are overweight, you will experience weight loss. The type of fatty acids found in unprocessed coconut fat are readily burned for energy without free radical damage. Seed oils destabilize blood sugar levels and contribute to storage of calories as fat. The thiamin, B-complex and coconut milk protocol stabilizes blood sugar and enhances metabolism. This protocol is safe for both type 1 and 2 diabetics, and any one experiencing stress induced hypoglycemia. These recommendations are in addition to any other supplements you may already be taking. Please do reduce other fats in the diet when adding coconut milk if your fat intake is already high. The fats to use are:
* Coconut oil or fresh coconut or coconut milk, natural, without preservatives, not hydrogenated. * Butter or ghee, on food as needed or desired (but coconut oil or milk can be used instead) * Olive oil, extra virgin only, for cooking or salad dressing or mayonnaise (make your own) * Peanut oil and non-hydrogenated peanut butter, for cooking or
eating * Avocado oil, for salads, not for cooking * Nuts and seeds in the whole, unprocessed state, alone or with
other foods. This includes the flax family. Flaxseeds or oil should only be used fresh. Buy organic flaxseeds, keep them in the freezer and fresh grind them in a coffee or seed mill on the day you use them. Light roasting of
some types of seeds is permissible. Other than sesame tahini or peanut butter do not use nuts as ‘butters’.
In descending order the previous fats are saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated. A final excellent source of the good fats is fish and the old rule applies. Eat fish 3-4 times a week, fresh not frozen. Though canned
water pack white tuna may be used for a protein source it is not a good source of the omega-3 fatty acids.
A suggested use for the coconut milk with breakfast, * cook your eggs in it or * put 1/3 cup in your protein and potassium smoothie (with added flaxseed for fiber) or * oatmeal cereal- 1 serving freshly made oatmeal, made with water 1/3 can coconut milk (about 5 ounces) 2 tablespoons flaxseed (makes about 4 tablespoons when ground)
2 heaped tablespoons non-fat cottage cheese or 1 scoop protein powder (not soy based) for protein raisins or dried blueberries or fresh fruit for more potassium maple syrup (grade C the dark stuff) to sweeten This breakfast provides protein, short and medium chain fatty acids for energy, complex carbohydrates and fiber from the flaxseed and oatmeal for energy and essential fatty acids from the flaxseeds for cell reproduction and growth. It also contains an abundant supply of potassium and other nutrients needed for regeneration and repair. Avoid entirely, or as much as possible, in food preparation and packaged foods:
* Safflower oil * Soy oil and soy products (more on this in the next newsletter)
* Sunflower oil * Cottonseed oil * Corn oil * Canola oil (never cook with this oil)
* Hydrogenated fats and oils * Partially hydrogenated fats and oils* Shortening
Check packages to make sure what you are getting. Do not miss on this one. In the next issue of the newsletter I will be explaining my position on all of the above and giving the clinical references. What I have the time and space to tell you now is that the sooner you switch your oils and fats the healthier you will be and the longer you will live
(barring an act of God or Satan).All current research DATA DECLARING the harmfulness of coconut oil and palm
Oil HAS BEEN COMPILED from studies using HYDROGENATED oils. THE CONCLUSIONSDRAWN IN THESE STUDIES CANNOT FACTUALLY BE APPLIED TO THE USE OF UNPROCESSEDTROPICAL OILS.
ALL HYDROGENATED FATS AND OILS, INCLUDING MARGARINE, SHORTENING AND ALLOTHER HYDROGENATED AND PARTIALLY HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OILS FOUND IN COOKIES, CANDIES, BAKED GOODS, BOXED TO BAKE ITEMS, CANNED FOODS AND MOSTRESTAURANT FOODS CONTRIBUTE TO DEGENERATIVE DISEASES INCLUDING HEART DISEASE, DIABETES, OBESITY, HYPERTENSION, STROKE, DEPRESSION, HYPOGLYCEMIA, THYROID DISORDERS AND CANCER.EVERY STUDY USING NATURAL, UNPROCESSED COCONUT AND PALM OILS FOUND A
NORMALIZING OF CHOLESTEROL, BLOOD SUGAR AND BLOOD PRESSURE. This is also true of extra virgin olive oil, peanut oil and avocado oil. COCONUT AND PALM OILS HELP TO PREVENT AND TREAT ALL VIRUSES.TOPICALLY COCONUT OIL (AND COCONUT MILK) TREATS SKIN AND HAIR inFESTATIONS AND INFECTIONS BY PARASITES, FUNGUS AND BACTERIA.
A final note: Coconut milk is not the juice from the inside of a young coconut. That thin liquid is called coconut water. Coconut milk is made by steeping the coconut and scraping out the meat, adding just enough water to
simmer and mashing the end product into a thick, creamy (or milky)substance, coconut milk.
Thiamin normalizes carbohydrate utilization by supporting the enzymes necessary to burn glucose and glycogen in the cell. The complete B-complex is used to stabilize blood sugar and keep the body from going into ‘adrenal
stimulating hypoglycemia’. Short and medium chain fatty acids as found in coconut milk support cell energy as an alternative fuel source as glucose and glycogen are recycled which further prevents the dip into adrenal stress.
Expect more energy, less hunger, better mood and better sleep. If you have HIV, CFSIDS, fibromyalgia, candida, CMV, herpes (any type), hepatitis (any type) expect some initial sleepiness and then slow but steady recovery. Make
sure to continue your basic protocols but this plan requires a much lower intake of anti-oxidants ao your program may be modified. Hypoglycemia, with resulting adrenal stress and cortisol stimulated utilization of proteins and
long chain fatty acids for fuel, is eliminated.
