Genetics does not have to dictate my health.

Hello, my name is Lydia. I believe the best way to predict my future is to create it. To do that, I make it a habit to improve my health.

My goal is to maximize my physical performance and mental clarity, body composition, and most importantly my overall health with a wholesome diet and exercise.

Why am I so concerned, you may ask. My motivation came from watching my mother suffer from numerous illnesses. Her life was regulated by when she had to take her drugs.

I have been retired for a while and I have yet to experience any of her illnesses. I attribute that to eating a wholesome diet and exercise.

I supplement my diet with high-quality vitamins, mineral supplements.

In my posts, I focus on two diets: the Ketogenic (Low-Carb /Atkins) and GAPS (Gut and Psychology / Physiology Syndrome) diets.

My exercise of choice is Dr. Doug McGuff’s Super Slow High-Intensity Exercise Program that I do for 15 minutes, once a week.

If there any subject that you would like me explore please email me at lpolstra@sympatico.ca

Please join me as I explore the latest and compelling studies on both subjects.

15 minutes of resistance weight training is all the exercise I need for the week to build muscle.

15 minutes of resistance weight training is all the exercise I need for the week.  Dr. McGuff says that is all I need to build muscle.

Dr. Doug McGuff is an expert in high-intensity exercise and he’s an emergency room physician. He is also passionate about exercise that can really have such a dramatic ability to influence your health.

I became interested when I heard in an Interview with Dr. Mercola that Dr. McGuff said, “I originally became interested in exercises when I was about 14 years old. I was in a sport called bicycle motocross, which is a type of sprint race done off-road on bicycles. (With resistance training) I went from last-place to untouchable. I made it to the professional level by the time I was 17.”

He went on to say:

  • I always continue to do high-intensity strength training. I followed the works of Arthur Jones*, and Mike Mentzer my whole life.

 

  • The type of high-intensity interval training that I am advocating is similar to high-intensity interval training, but it’s being done with weight equipment.

 

  • I started to pay more attention to restricting the amount of training that was being done. … I spaced my workouts further and further apart and getting better results.

 

  • Dr. McGuff suggests not do a workout until you have fully recovered. That means the workouts will be anywhere from 7 to 14 days a part.

 

* Arthur Jones changed how many people exercise with the introduction of his Nautilus fitness machines. The invention of the exercise machines in the 1960s helped spark the health club business.

 

* Mike Mentzer was one of the classic bodybuilders of the early years.  He will always be remembered for having one of the greatest physiques of all time.

Next week I will post his workout for women.

The week after that, I will post his workout for men.

In both you will see roughly the set up and the equipment, what the joint angles and range of motions are, and what the performance of the exercise and the experience of the workout actually looks like.

Iodine is the first line of defense of the immune system and proper thyroid function.

My name is Lydia. My goal is share with you my journey to maximize my physical performance and mental clarity, body composition, and most importantly my overall health with a wholesome diet and exercise.

I focus on two diets: the Ketogenic (Low-Carb /Atkins) and the GAPS (Gut and Psychology / Physiology Syndrome).

My exercise of choice is Dr. Doug McGuff’s Super Slow High-Intensity Exercise Program that I do for 15 minutes, once a week.

Recently I have focused on Dr. Jerry Tennant.

Dr. Tennant has been acknowledged by his peers by awarding him the following:

AMA:  American Medical Association Physician’s Recognition Award.

Philip Corboy Award for contributions to ophthalmology

Hawaiian Eye Society Award for Excellence

Pope Benedict:  Order of Saint Sylvester Award for Contributions to Medicine

Microcurrent Society:  Lifetime Achievement Award

Top 20 Alternative Doctors in America

Newsmax Health’s Top 100 Physicians Who Embrace Integrative Medicine

The Academy of Comprehensive Integrative Medicine:  Lifetime Achievement Award

World Academy of Neural Therapy According To Huneke:  Scientific Excellence Award

And others

Dr. Tennant is the author of Healing with Voltage. 

A very comprehensive book on how the body works.  There is extensive information on the voltage or pH of cells.

https://www.amazon.ca/Healing-Voltage-Handbook-Jerry-Tennant/dp/1453649166/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1433422557&sr=8-1-fkmr0&keywords=Dr.+Jerry+Tennant%2C+M.D.+-+Healing+is+Voltage

Dr. Jerry Tennant has successfully helped his patients improve their health and wellness using the following principles:

  1. The body doesn’t get well by making damaged cells work correctly. It gets well by making new cells that work correctly.
  2.   The process of rebuilding a new and healthy you is based on the fact that the body is constantly replacing itself. Your body grows new retinal elements every two days, new skin in six weeks, a new liver in eight weeks, and new nerve cells in a period of months. As each new cell is built, the body seeks proper building materials from which to construct the cell. If the body cannot find good, healthy materials, it will use whatever is available.
  3.   To make new cells, the body must have raw materials (nutrition), release of environmental toxins and sufficient cellular energy to use the materials. If any of these are lacking, pharmaceuticals and/or surgeries will not help.
  4.   Human cells are designed to run at about -20 millivolts (or pH of 7.35). The body has the ability to heal itself of many ailments if it is supplied with sound nutrition, routine detox and proper cellular energy.

Today I will focus on the importance of iodine.

To make new cells, the body must have raw materials.

Did you know that table salt has only 1/1000th of the iodine we need?

The body uses iodine for cellular metabolism to move cell secretions from inside the cell to outside the cell. Iodine is the first line of defense of the immune system and proper thyroid function.If body doesn’t produce enough iodine, cellular secretions are blocked inside the cell, which can form cysts in the thyroid, breasts, ovaries, testicles, etc.

In addition to iodine and potassium iodide, Lugol’s Iodine Plus contains fulvic to help absorption, selenium, zinc, vitamin C, and thiamine to help produce stomach acid. Adults should take one capsule daily with the Restore shake/ smoothie.

To understand why companion nutrients, such as those found in the Restore shake/smoothie should always be taken with Lugol’s Iodine supplementation, click on the link below for a brief summary:

I will not profit from your purchases of any of the products I discuss.

Fluoride, Chloride and Bromide displace Iodine causing iodine deficiency.

My name is Lydia. My goal is share my journey to maximize my physical performance and mental clarity, body composition, and most importantly my overall health with a wholesome diet and exercise.

Fluoride, Chloride and Bromide displace Iodine and cause iodine deficiency.
Also see the Symptoms below.

SOURCES OF FLUORIDE:

  1. Drinking and bathing in chlorinated tap water contribute to iodine deficiency as fluoride, chloride and bromide chemically displace iodine and cause iodine deficiency.
  2. Medications such as antidepressants, including Paxil and Prozac.
  3. Sucralose: Chlorine is even present in the sugar substitute Sucralose.
  4. Commercially-produced bread and baked goods contribute to iodine deficiency. The bromine compounds used by the baking industry, as dough conditioners, displace iodine in our tissues.
  5. Bromine is also used as an agricultural fumigant, and treated crops have elevated bromine levels. Bromine is also found in medications such as nasal sprays and inhalers.
  6. Some carbonated drinks, and even some Gatorade products, contain brominated vegetable oils.

 USING WATER FILTERS TO REMOVE THE CHLORINE IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Cancer Is Related To Iodine Deficiency. What Is The Solution?

Cancer Is Related To Iodine Deficiency. What Is The Solution?

Dr. Brownstein is an expert on iodine.

He wrote the book: Iodine: Why You Need it and Why You Can’t live without it. The book is in its 5thedition.

Here is the link:https://www.amazon.ca/Iodine-Need-Cant-Live-Without/dp/0966088239/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1525450639&sr=1-1&keywords=brownstein+iodine

The Thyroid Summit posted an interview with Dr. David Brownstein on Youtube.

Here is the link:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8Y800-xEXU

The Transcript is available. Here are the main points.

Dr. Brownstein: Iodine is deficient in over 95 per cent of people. Conventional medicine doesn’t recognize that and the consequences of this deficiency are problems with all the glandular tissue ,which is the thyroid, the breasts the ovaries, uterus and the prostate.

One in 7 women will develop breast cancer, one in 3 men will develop prostate cancer.  I say it’s all directly related to the deficiency epidemic that we’re seeing.

Interviewer: What’s the best way to combat iodine deficiency?

Dr. Brownstein: I suggest getting your levels checked before starting treatment and work with a knowledgeable health care provider.

See where you are and then you can take natural forms of iodine and once the body is applied with the right forms of iodine those glandular tissues start to work a lot better.

One of the natural forms of iodine would be seaweed. Seaweed would be a natural form of iodine and it was used for centuries as a good source of iodine.

The problem now is that if the seaweed is harvested from the ocean where is pollution it can take up bromide or fluoride or chlorine and not half as much iodine in it and the other problem with seaweed now is the radiation problem from Fukushima where a lot of the seaweed came from Japan and you know who knows the quality of that stuff right now.

Interviewer: So what’s another source other than fortified salt table salt, which isn’t the best source?

Dr. Brownstein: Only 10 % of iodine in table salt is absorbable.  I don’t think that’s the best way to get it in and my research shows that supplementing with iodine and the old form of iodine Lugol’s iodine (capsules for adults, liquid for children, per Dr. Jerry Tennant), which has been around since the 1800s is an adequate source of iodine.

Note: “Jean Lugol, a Paris physician, in 1829 discovered that iodine is more soluble in water that contains potassium iodide.”

Logol’s Iodine is available through Senergy Group, a subsidiary of the Tennant Institute.

Here is the link to Logol’s Iodine Capsules:  http://www.senergy.us/lugol-s-iodine-plus-capsules.html

Interviewer:What is the most dramatic thing you’ve seen when someone has changed their level of iodine?

Dr. Brownstein: Iodine is responsible for maintaining normal architecture of a glandular tissue includes the breasts, the ovaries, uterus, thyroid gland, and the prostate.

In iodine deficiency you start to get problems in the architecture of those tissues they start to form cysts and nodules and eventually cancer can happen.

So the most dramatic thing I see is people with fibrocystic breasts or cysts on their prostate or tumors on these glandular tissues that just go away when they’re given iodine. Not all the time but in many cases that’s what happens.

Interviewer:  What do you recommend in terms of daily intake of iodine?

Everybody should have their levels checked and work with an iodine knowledgeable health care practitioner.

The Japanese we estimate takes in about an average about 13 milligrams a day so I think safely 13 milligrams a day for most people can be a starting dose. People with problems with gland tissue may need more. Get your iodine levels checked before starting treatment.

Iodine has been used over antiquities for many issues particularly thyroid issues and for hypothyroidism.  Iodine can help the thyroid regenerate itself where people are longer than that hormone. Iodine has a long storied history of uses for skin disorders and glandular problems.

The body gets well by making new cells that work correctly. Your body grows new retinal elements every two days, new skin in six weeks, a new liver in eight weeks, and new nerve cells in a period of months. As each new cell is built, the body seeks proper building materials from which to construct the cell. If the body cannot find good, healthy materials, it will use whatever is available.

Gut issues? Do you suffer from any of these?

I was reading some of the comments in my newsfeed regarding Ketogenic Diet.  A good 80% that I read just last night asked about gut issues. 

I say why not follow the Ketogenic Diet ratios for fat, protein and carbs BUT fill our meals with gut friendly foods. 

Today we am asking you if you suffer from any of these gut issues?

Digestive disorders: IBS, IBD, gastritis, colitis, esophagitis, celiac disease.

Autoimmunity: multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes type 1, osteoarthritis, lipus, interstitial cystitis, psoriasis, alopecia.

Arthritis, ME, allergies, asthma, eczema, hay fever. Endocrine disorders: thyroid, adrenal, PMS.

Migraines, neuropathy and other neurological conditions. Chronic cystitis.

Food intolerances.

In the link below, Dr. Mercola helps us understand the cause Leaky gut. It is a condition that occurs due to the development of gaps between the cells (enterocytes) that make up the membrane lining your intestinal wall.

These tiny gaps allow substances such as undigested food, bacteria and metabolic wastes, that should be confined to your digestive tract, to escape into your bloodstream — hence the term leaky gut syndrome.

Once the integrity of your intestinal lining is compromised, and there is a flow of toxic substances “leaking out” into your bloodstream, your body experiences significant increases in inflammation.

Also, your immune system may become confused and begin to attack your own body as if it were an enemy (autoimmunity).

Most often, leaky gut syndrome is associated with inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis, or celiac disease, but even healthy people can have varying degrees of intestinal permeability leading to a wide variety of health symptoms — and this can be influenced heavily by the foods you choose to eat.

How Do I Do the Ketogenic Diet?

Today, we will learn how to do the Ketogenic Diet.

I attached a few overviews of the diet from well respected sources.

  1. Josh Ellis Ketosis overview snapshot.
  2. Dr. Volek snapshot of a meal plan. His scientific research on the Ketogenic Diet has inspired many other authors. He has been on the diet for over 15 years.
  3. KetoDiet Book with all the dos and don’ts. A 14-day meal plan and several recipes. The Ketodoetapp will have more recipes.
  4. Dr. Pompa’s Keto-roadmap.  A second source of what the diet is all about.
  5. Supplements instructions
  6. Restore a multivitamin and mineral powder.

Ready to go?  Start with a tracking App. I look for ones that give the grams as well as percentages of calories. The KetoDiet App is one of many good ones.

Here is the link to the KetoDiet App.

Since first reading the above mentioned attachments, I learned that becoming fat-burning could take anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks depending on the current level of carbohydrates.

Secondly, I learned that protein should be restricted more than listed in the attachments. Please see my posting: Protein reduction is the best way to reduce to slow aging and the chronic diseases.

WebMed: What are the risks?

https://www.webmd.com/diabetes/type-1-diabetes-guide/what-is-ketosis#1

To clarify: Ketoacidosis is not to be confused with Nutritional Ketosis?

Unlike the dangerous state of diabetic ketoacidosis, nutritional ketosis is a natural metabolic state that enables the body to efficiently use fat as a primary source of energy instead of glucose. When shifting into ketosis, one becomes a “fat burner” instead of a “sugar burner,” relying on fat as the primary cellular fuel. Ketones are produced as a byproduct of fat metabolism, and nutritional ketosis is defined by measuring blood ketones between 0.5 and 5.0 mmol/L.

Mayo Clinic: Low-carb diet: Can it help you lose weight?

https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/weight-loss/in-depth/low-carb-diet/art-20045831?pg=2

To clarify: Risks

To reduce the occurrence of any of the risks listed, the leading scientists recommend supplementing with magnesium, potassium and sodium such as sea salt or himalayan sea salt.

For me, for the magnesium, potassium and all the other vitamins and minerals I need I choose Restore.  I do not make money on these products, I am sharing my experience to those who wish take advantage of my experience.

I attached the long list of ingredients. For people with thyroid issues, please have your doctor reduce the medication as needed.  To reduce the shipping costs call  972-580-0545. Here is the link to their product offering  http://www.senergy.us/nutritional-products.html
