Health Tips for my Plumber

Every one needs a plumber at one time or another when you own a house.  We don't always need them but when we do, we need them NOW and it ends up costing you money.

Just as our household plumbing needs maintenance to keep working, so do our bodies.  If we put shit in our bodies, our pipes get clogged, inflammation occurs and we find ourselves sick with diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, dementia, MS and all other illnesses that make life less than enjoyable.

When Matty the Plumber came to the house over the summer, I got on the subject of Fenugreek and Cordyceps.  I was gungho on these remedies and couldn't believe the results they were having with my mom's blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure readings.  Matty happened to be here on a day when I was shouting our great results from the mountain top for all to hear.  Matty listened to me.  I sent him home with some Fenugreek and Cordyceps.

Today,  Matty returned to our house for a minor job.  He looks fabulous.  He's dropped some weight and looks like he's on the road to better health.  He's a volunteer fireman in his town so he absolutely needs to feel good all the time.  I'm very happy for him, his family and all the people he will save in the future.

Like me, Matty is a fan of Fenugreek and Cordyceps.  He's wearing cloths that haven't fit in a long time and he feels great about it.  He reminds me of myself when I first discovered the power in natures medicine cabinet. 

Today, I shared with him what I had learned about gluten and it's effects on my mom's mental state.  I told him how I stopped eating gluten too and my big fat belly is flattening out.  I have NEVER had a flat belly but I see one in my future.

How did I do it?  

Things/Food to Avoid

All gluten products - wheat and rye, barley and oats
Bread, Pasta, Preservatives
All Rice
Anything in a box
Preservatives of all kinds
Don't buy anything that is "sugar free" it breaks your insulin receptors

What do you eat?

Anything organic - fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices
Quinoa grain
Amaranth Grain
Raw nuts like pistachio, almonds, pine nuts, hazelnuts, walnuts
Raw Blue Agave Nectar (sugar replacement - this is a low glycemic sugar, your blood sugar won't spike)
Use Soy Flour, Quinoa flour to make gluten free bread in a bread machine.  Here's the recipe I came up with that is A-MAZ-ING.

It's possible to cook fabulous meals with out gluten.  Instead of wheat flour, use soy flour or Quinoa flour.  Combine food where starch accompanies vegetables or Protein (meats and legumes) with vegetables.  Never mix starch and protein.

It is tough to go totally gluten free cold turkey.  I know, I tried and failed.  Here's how I did it and had success.  First, I went from the gluten breads to Lavash flat bread.  I made sandwich wraps.  Of course I became a master sandwich wrap maker.  Uncle Al calls them "the banana things" because he thinks they look like bananas when I serve the sandwich to him.

When I realized that gluten was making my belly extend, I stopped the Lavash wraps and went totally gluten free.  I bought gluten free products that were organic and were not filled with preservatives.  They were pretty good.  I began making my own gluten free baked goods.  Mmmmmm!  I stopped making gluten free bread because my mom has a problem with baked products so I decided to think about what I could use in place of a bread type wrap.

The Bread Solution 

Lettuce. Use lettuce like a wrap.  It's crunchy like chips and you really get to taste the "sandwich" filler.

We can be creative with food.  Initially I was perplexed about what to cook and how to cook.  But, I've since figured it out and now I'm having a recipe creating extravaganza in my brain.  Documenting the recipe creations as fast as I can so that I can share them with others, like you who read my blog.

So... we all need a plumber sometime, not just for our homes but our body's innards.  Put good stuff in and you will avoid clogs and lots of pain.
