Genetics

Although Gene Expression tends to be a bit more complex than this article makes it. This is good base information about the subject of Epigenetics. Some other factors that can contribute to gene expression are: socioeconomic status, the level of stress of your job, the amount of central nervous system insults that you have incurred, and whether you were able to heal / integrate them before the next one happened, what generation you are in (the young people under the age of 25 are experiencing much more familial gene expression for a variety of reasons including stress and their parents’ perception of stress), whether you were affected by the huge amount of societal changes that America has had (i.e. housing crisis, stock market crashes…overall corporate white collar criminals trying to steal your money…), your availability of emergency financial support in difficult times, how much change you have gone through and how quickly, your experience, exposure and the effect of natural disasters and earth /climate change on you, your family, your stability and your body, where you grew up and the enviromental toxins associated with that, how fast paced your lifestyle is, what industry you are in, how secure your livelihood is, how many vacations you take, how high the expectations on you are and whether you can meet them, your relationship status, your family’s belief systems about emotional expression, the communication and conflict skills of your family, whether your family and support system drinks or uses drugs, your race and whether you are experiencing discrimination, whether you are a vegetarian and how your body responds to that (contrary to what much of the medical industry is proposing, large amounts of people experience negative gene expression merely BECAUSE they are a vegetarian), gender, geographic location, whether and how much the gene expression of a characteristic was expressed WHEN you were conceived and during prenatal development, how many generations had experienced the gene expression prior to you and the amount of information that they had about appropriately caring for their bodies, and whether they let that gene expression contribute to other malformations before you were conceived…

…For many, the amount of factors that they would NEED to have control of are not * in* their control, and the information is not available to them about how to protect themselves. So as much as the generations who are 60 years old and older would want everyone to believe that everything is their control, they are oftentimes out of touch with the challenges faced by the younger generations and those who come from cultural groups that are different then theirs.

This is why one of the reasons that cancer rates are SOOOOO high.

However, the Belief that we have control over our gene expression and the desire to live a life that supports our health is absolutely primary for staying healthy and acquiring the guidance that we need to protect ourselves.  Traditional Chinese Medicine suggests that we
should never operate at more than 70% capacity. That way we can be prepared for the
unexpected events. Reduced stress is essential for limiting unhealthy (family illness) gene
expression (like cancer, diabetes or heart problems…)

Most of us were raised to believe that the genes we were born with are our destiny and the diseases that run in the family are most likely coming for us too

My views on Anarchy

Order / Organization that is for the Greatest Good of All is better than selfish greed in any form. The answer to ineffective leadership is not “no leadership”. It is effective, transformational, high integrity, ethical, inspired leadership. That will not happen until the people change and vote for someone or listen to someone who is healthy.

Anarchy in America (US) would be a selfish, power grab by All (Rather than the selfish power grab by just the select few). Most people in America are unhealthy mentally AND physically. Just about everyone is using some kind of drug. Until people get drug free and address core issues, it will be unsafe for ANY of them to have power that can affect others’ lives. So i certainly don’t trust those people to do behaviors that are the highest good of all when they can’t even do the highest good for themselves. Self leadership doesnt work in a society until people are healthy. Otherwise everyone is just violating everyone else.

Proper leadership is through inspired action and wisdom and leading by example. There are people who do this, but Ameicans don’t choose them as leaders.

I studied transformational leadership in 1985 (and one of the books we used was written in 1967). We have yet to see it in this country (USA). “We, the people”, do not choose to have order that is based in integrity, doing the right thing, heart led, emotional health…Until we, as humanity, choose that love and integrity are more important than money and that healthy emotional behavior is more important than suppression, we, the people, will continue to chose people who lead us astray.

Over and over in this country (US) i see people doing behaviors of “This doesn’t work, let’s do the opposite” A psychologist-friend of mine would always say “180% away from insanity is still insanity”.

We need teachers who teach people what truly healthy behavior is, then self governance might work.

Who indicted oatmeal?

With all of this momentum to support the paleo diet, I would like to remind everyone the “180 degrees away from insanity, is still insanity”. We need to eat balanced diets. Yes for O blood type and those who cannot pull off the vegetarian diets, protein is not only important, it is a priority. But we must not throw the baby out with the bath water. Protein is a building block for almost everything going on in the body including the building of DNA.

Yes, as far as protein goes, we should not eat more than our palm size of meat at any time (as thick as a deck of cards). It is hard for the body to digest and causes the body to be acidic. (not to mention putting the body at risk for heart problems). It should be grass fed/ “finished” beef or animals and pasture raised chicken…Organic only (otherwise you are at risk for gmos and all of the toxicity that goes with that). (Finished means that the animals were fed grass all way up to their transition day. IE they were not fed grains the last month to fatten them up)

We should be eating 7-9 veggies (and about 2 fruits) a day. This should be our primary focus because this is our pharmacy of good health. We need to eat the rainbow of colors every day to protect us from environmental toxicity. Veggies support us in being alkaline, which protects us from disease. They also give us good fiber to keep us regular.

We also need healthy fats, like omega 3s and some (but less) omega 6, like coconut oil. Nurses say we should have a 2:1 ratio of omega 3s to 6s. Two omega 3s for every 6. These can come from avocados, nuts (although some nuts are higher in 6s), and high quality extra virgin olive oil (virgin can be used for cooking at low temperatures). Walnuts are a good choice for nuts (and are good for the brain) and brazil nuts are considered the queen of nuts – although for many it is an acquired taste.

Now… Let’s talk about oatmeal. There is no evidence to support or validate that oatmeal is not good for the body…Quite the contrary, there are volumes of studies that demonstrate that oatmeal is good for our body. The American diet is way to focussed on grains, so I would say, “yes, we need to cut back on grains”.

Leading edge doctors who have studied nutrition recommend that we do not eat more than a cup, or half a cup a day of grains per day. They recommend that we avoid wheat because it is so hybridized that most peoples’ bodies do not even recognize it, and there is also a concern that GMO/GE wheat can taint the organic wheat. Some gluten grains are bad for people with sensitivity to them, however I feel that a bigger issue is that some people already have so much inflammation in their gut that gluten just exaserbates the problem. (There can be other issues also, like mercury / or other heavy metal toxicity in the gut, which can also contribute to this gut inflammation…)

Each individual has certain tolerances and sensitivities to certain foods, including grains. For one a pecan might be a godsend, of another it might be a poison. The same is true for grains. I am O blood type (“the natural meat eater”) and I am highly allergic to wheat and spelt, but my body loves oatmeal and buckwheat (among others).

So my recommendation is, if your body reacts to a specific grain, don’t eat it. An allergic reaction can follow all the way up to 10 days after you eat a food. It can include mood swings and emotions, anger (from the liver detoxing) or the myriad of physical issues including acnes or rashes. Some doctors recommend that you eliminate a food for 6 months, then bring it back and eat a lot of it for a period of time and see if your body reacts. Another option is to get a blood test to find out food allergies and sensitivities. This can cost $300-800.

So back to oatmeal and low risk (non gmo) grains. Grains can have a mineral in them called Lithium. Lithium is well known in the medical industry as a medication used to stabilize mood swings (for bipolar). This is just one of many nutrients in oatmeal and other grains that is beneficial for the body. Brown rice and black beans are also a great nutritional combo because they equate to a full protein, high fiber and they are less taxing to the body’s digestive system than meat. 

Grains can also support the creation of serotonin (our happy drugs in our body), if they are appropriate for your body. 

There is nothing wrong with being a healthy OMNIVORE. And eating the full spectrum of food available, as long as you are getting the right amount of veggies and protein and you are not overdoing it with any particular food. The concept of eating well balanced meal, has never gone away. With registered dieticians, the “food pyramid” has been gone for a long time. Because almost the entire news media is owned by a few people, good accurate information about health rarely reaches the news and the american public. Don’t be afraid to eat oatmeal or other grains that work for your body as long as you are only eating about a half cup per meal. I will eat a beef sausage patty, which I make, collard greens (or any colorful veggies) and 1/2 cup of oatmeal for breakfast. Oftentimes I will the same thing for lunch that I make for breakfast so that I save time on food prep. Or I will eat the same thing for breakfast that I ate for dinner so that I don’t have to cook again.

And remember food allergies can be created by eating the same thing every day or limiting your food options to your favorite 25 foods. Mix it up, eat seasonal veggies, and eat the right foods in the right proportions for your body. Don’t overdo ANY foods or your will wind up with different health issues.

And, as a sidenote. Although we all love bacon, the processing of it can lead to  any end product that is less than ideal for our health (and extremely toxic that can contribute to infertility and impotence). Focus on healthy, less processed cuts of beef and pork and get your fats from healthy options. If you are craving fats eat olive oil and coconut oils.

Sex

Hmmm. Funny. Don’t completely agree. But like what she said about self respect.

http://samuel-warde.com/2013/08/this-is-the-best-example-of-what-twerking-really-is

While I don’t think that you have to ‘wait til marriage to have sex’, I do believe everything that she said about self worth. I believe the “wait til you get married to have sex” thing is the reason so many people married the wrong person and got divorced later. It is also the reason that so many people get married too young. Studies show that young people who wait til at least 26 or 28 years old, to get married are much more successful with marriage than those who get married earlier. And they are also better equipped to be more patient, stable, loving parents. (Stability is absolutely essential for a child’s overall health). They also have a better sense of who they are, and what they want and need, have had time to work through some of their issues and tend to choose better matches. They have had time to develop some sense of autonomy, and some time to possibly think of their individual purpose (other than child-rearing). While there can be some exceptions to these comments, I think it is important for a person to know who they are, before they commit before God/dess and everyone to be with another person for the rest of their life.

I believe that sex is a special experience and that it is a way of expressing love.  Although in many circles of singles, they tell me that there is something wrong with me that I do not just have casual sex (or date people for the sole purpose of having sex) and that I am not as ‘evolved’ because I don’t participate in “Polyamory” (another word they use for multiple sex partners), I stick with my original beliefs that “sex is something special and it is about love”. I believe that sex is something beautiful to be cherished. I have received a lot of criticism for this idea, in a world that vascilates between puritanical abstention and lustful, greedy obsession with sexuality. And when I was younger, I was rejected many times for not “putting out”.

Many singles use sex as a ‘drug of choice’ and make others wrong for not participating. Also this thing of ‘serial monogamy’ i.e. relationship addiction where you use a person ’til you are bored with them, then move on to the next person (usually before your last relationship was even over), is in my opinion a way of not dealing with your issues or doing proper grief work. It is harmful to the person doing it, because they get stuck in patterns of insecure attachment that could potentially leave them single forever, and it is harmful to their love interest who feels used when they are dumped for the next interesting person. Women can have 300 times the oxytocin (bonding chemical) as men.  When it is a man “rebounding” and dumping his partner for someone else, it can leave a woman traumatized. The chemicals in a woman’s body (who has a healthy/secure attachment /bonding mechanism) can cause her to feel overwhelmed, as well as excruciating pain. Oxytocin withdrawal (in the words of a nurse friend of mine) is literally biochemically equivalent to cocaine withdrawal. Relationships need to be gently moved from, and issues need to be worked through, for both parties to be healthy at the end. The days of randomly using people and disposing of them when you are done, in a selfish way to get needs met, without regard for others, are over.

More older women are dating younger men because men their own age are ignorant, immature or disrespectful.  So those men, who are just randomly using women until their 30s or 40s (when they are ready to settle down), are often left behind when high quality women date younger men who are can be more caring, respectful, appreciative and attractive. Also studies show that rebound relationships are rarely successful. They rarely result in two healthy people coming together to have a healthy relationship.

The societal patterns are that people are waiting longer to get married (especially if they have divorced parents), with people waiting til their 30s, or even early 40s for their first marriage. To tell them they have til wait to they are 40 to have sex is not realistic (and literally can be harmful to their health). But even if they are waiting til they find a good match, to realize their dreams, or to have their career in order before they marry, they still need to be honest, open and responsible with how they have sex and who they have sex with. I hear all the time people say “I told him /her that I didn’t want a relationship, before I had sex with him/her. I dont know why she/he is so attached”. This is not how the body works for someone who is emotionally available. People bond, oxytocin creates a bond, and people can be attached when they have sex. It is the person who just wants “to play” who is responsibility to pick the right person with whom to “play”. And to be responsible. The day of “there are no victims; it is your fault if I hurt you” are over. If you are setting up someone to get hurt, and they feel traumatized when you are done with them. You are responsible. Or shall I say, “you have been irresponsible”.

Unconditional love and responsible people do not leave a trail of bodies, or people who feel traumatized.  If you are responsible, honest, open and choose the right people, there is no reason that people will feel traumatized from their experience with you. If you want to just “play” then do not choose people who want a commitment, even if they are naive (inexperienced) and think they can handle it. If someone hasn’t been burned before, by someone just wanting ‘fun’, when they want a serious, committed relationship, and they don’t know how much pain can be involved with that, it is OUR job to protect them from that type of harm. We are responsible to make sure that what we do, does not harm another. The days of take everything you can get, not caring about our impact on others, selfish greed, the ends justify the means and if you get hurt by me, it’s your fault for not protecting yourself better are over. Innocent people don’t know they need to protect themselves from others. It is OUR job to not harm the innocent or vulnerable, not THEIR job to walk around defensive so that they do not get hurt. The job of the inner male, and men in our society is to protect others, even if it is to protect them from themselves. The days of recklessly, selfishly using people and their bodies to get ahead are over. We all know that rape is not ok. Neither is just using people for sex and disposing them. The days of using people for their ideas and energy and not giving something in return are also over.
