Dirty Girl’s Vegan Potato Salad

6 red potatoes, cut into quarters (I leave the skin on, you can take it off if you want)
1 cup celery, chopped (115g)
1 cup red or yellow onion, diced (115g)
1/2 cup parsley, finely chopped (20g)
2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped (6g)

Dressing 
1 cup cashews, soaked in water for at least 10 minutes (135g)
2 dates, soaked in hot water for 10 minutes (be sure to take the pit out)
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tablespoon yellow mustard (18g)
1/4 cup nutritional yeast (18g)
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon sea salt (6g)
1 cup water

  • Add the quartered potatoes to a large pot and completely cover them with water by 1 or 2 inches. Place a lid on the pot at an angle and cook for 25 minutes or until you can pierce them with a fork.
  • Drain the potatoes and set them aside to cool.
  • Make the dressing by draining and rinsing the cashews and placing them into the blender along with the rest of the dressing ingredients (dates – make sure to drain the water and remove the pit before adding the dates to the blender  – garlic, mustard, nutritional yeast, salt, apple cider vinegar, and water). Blend until totally creamy and smooth, about a minute. Set aside for now.
  • When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut them into bite-sized pieces and place them into a large mixing bowl and add the celery, onion, parsley, dill, and all of the dressing.
  • Gently stir until everything is combined and add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Best served cold.

 

Cancer

           NUTRITIONAL STRATEGIES FOR MANAGING CANCER

If someone truly wants to, cancer can be managed nutritionally.  There are determined people who are able to really know what they need.  It takes trusting your own sense and asking for divine help to make it work, because it is the Creator who gives and takes life.

  • Detoxification with digestive enzymes
  • Buffered ascorbate vitamin C
  • Coenzyme Q10
  • Omega 3 essential fat
  • Vitamin D
  • Arginine
  • B vitamins: B12 Folic Acid
  • Antioxidants
  • Alkalizing the body
  • Magnesium
  • Water intake
  • Balanced meals on a schedule
  • Exercise and movement
  • Relaxation and stress reduction, positive thinking
  • Active participation in your own care nourish yourself
  • Confidence: nutrition therapy beats chemotherapy

DETOXIFICATION AND ELIMINATION:

Enzymes dissolve the fibrous, hard protective shell around cancer cells.  Take digestive enzymes on an empty stomach to get a systemic effect.  In order to clear the fibrous shell around cancer cells, take digestive enzymes on an empty stomach with water. Wait at least one half hour to eat.

Digestive enzymes can also be taken at the beginning of meals to improve digestion, but for dissolving cancer cell membranes take any kind of digestive enzymes on an empty stomach daily at bedtime or early morning or any time that is convenient for you.

Use serapeptidase enzyme to clear mucus, thick body fluids or any fibrous accumulation in the lungs or lymphatic system. 

Use natokinase or lumbrokinase enzymes to clear fibrous accumulation that is angiogenic in the blood vessels.

Any enzyme product will have a systemic beneficial effect when taken on an empty stomach.

Live foods such as uncooked, raw vegetables, fruits and raw nuts and seeds provide enzymes.  Eat lots of vegetables and drink water continually. 

 ASCORBATE VITAMIN C:

Buffered Vitamin C clears out toxins by binding toxic metals and toxic chemicals that have been stored in the body, and then flushes them out through the bowels.  Use an ascorbate flush protocol once weekly as a detoxification strategy, or at least one time to determine your personal daily needs.

To calculate the optimum amount of Vitamin C for your daily needs take 1000mg of buffered Vitamin C every 15 minutes until you get diarrhea. Your daily optimum requirement will be 1000mg less than the total amount needed to cause the flush. For example, if you required 5000mg to achieve the flush then 4000mg is your optimal amount. Once you determine your optimal amount take half in the AM and take the other half in the PM.  

Ascorbate is of benefit in cancer because it facilitates apoptosis, also called programmed cell death which is the bursting and death of cancer cells.

BATHING AND LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE:

Soak in sea salt, Epsom salt, sodium bicarbonate in the bath and wash off sweat with soap. 

Wash in the shower holding the soap and moving your hand over your extremities from the knees to the thighs on all sides of the legs.  Rub both legs from the knees to the thighs in front, on the sides and the back of the upper leg; then wash from the ankles to the knees on all sides.  Get rid of lymph fluid in the upper leg and then work on the circulation of the lower legs. 

First wash the underarms in circular movements in both directions clockwise and counterclockwise as desired.  Then wash the  upper arms on all sides, from the elbow to the shoulder, on the top in the back, underneath and inside; then wash the forearms on all sides, moving your hand from the wrists to the elbows, on all sides.

In general you always want to move the circulation toward the sweat glands under the arm or towards the sweat glands in the groin.

From the center of the chest, wash toward your armpit above and below the breast.  From the center of the upper back wash from the center toward the sweat gland by your shoulder. 

To reduce edema, make effort to encourage the circulation in the natural way the lymphatic system flows.  You can get rid of a terrible cold and congestion by washing in the correct direction.

 WATER INTAKE: 

Drink purified water as needed and thank G-d for urination.

Adequate hydration is necessary to process waste products that are being eliminated when using a detoxification protocol.   Water enables expectoration and bowel movements.  Dehydration may actually be a cause of headache.  Other liquids such as juices are a source of carbohydrates and should be considered part of balanced meals.  Water is a free beverage unlike other beverages and is necessary for homeostasis, circulation and to prevent muscle atrophy.  

Exercise and movement is important to facilitate detoxification through the lymphatic system which releases through the sweat glands, bowel movements, urination and breathing.

OMEGA-3 ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS:

The outer surface of every cell is composed of fat.  Liquidy fat is needed for production of helpful hormones that decrease inflammation.  Omega-3 fish oils supplies the substance that make the skin of every cell.  This supple, flexible cell membrane creates permeability in cells allowing for elimination of wastes and then you can really benefit from  intake of nutrients because you’ll be able to absorb nutrients through the surface of the cells.  Omega 3 enables cells to spontaneously produce anti-inflammatory eicosanoid hormones which decrease pain and inflammation.  Omega-3 stabilizes normal cell growth and limits chaotic overgrowth of cancer cells.

Symptoms of Omega-3 deficiency are dry eyes, dry hair and dry skin, constipation, insomnia, insulin resistance, edema, muscle aches, headaches, arthritic pain.

According to Dr. Barry Sears of the popular Zone Diet, dosage recommendations for  Omega-3 EFAs are a minimum of 4000mg daily taken with fatty foods such as nuts, seeds, olives, avocados or during/after a meal for everyone.  Individuals with cancer have higher needs than healthy people.

Omega-3 EFAs 4000 mg can be consumed every 3 to 4 hours if needed to control any physical pain, swelling, or inflammation.

VITAMIN D:

Symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency include osteoporosis or loss of bone in teeth above the gums, high blood pressure, diabetes, insulin resistance, the flu, infections, cancer.  People don’t work on farms in the sun and when we go to the beach or the park we put on sunscreen.  And COPP a Life Corp. thinks there is a Vitamin D deficiency epidemic.

Get a lab test to determine if you need to supplement with Vitamin D.  Take in sunlight directly on your skin in order to produce Vitamin D yourself.

Vitamin D mechanisms of action include: decreases rennin production thereby reducing blood pressure,  decreases insulin resistance, enables insulin production, antibacterial, antiinfective, inhibits angiogenesis and blood vessel growth, increases bone growth by increased mineral utilization.

COENZYMEQ10:

Cancer cells have a tough, fibrous shell which prevents oxygen from entering the cell. Cancer cells thrive in this anaerobic environment. CoenzymeQ10 enhances the utilization of oxygen inside cells and increases the amount of oxygen in all cells. Cancer cells cannot grow in an aerobic environment.   Dosage of CoQ-10 varies according to individual needs.  Symptoms of CoenzymeQ10 deficiency are bleeding gums, gingivitis, muscle fatigue, rhabdomyolysis.   A doctor can order the blood test CPK creatinine phospho kinase, to check for and monitor for muscle breakdown if you take Statin cholesterol medications and other medications listed below.  Beware that if you take prescription or over the counter medications that inhibit the body’s production of CoenzymeQ10 you are more at risk of growing cancer cells.

DRUGS THAT INHIBIT OR DIMINISH COENZYMEQ10

PRODUCTION OR FUNCTION:

Prochlorperazine used as an antiemetic during chemotherapy actually shuts down production of coenzyme Q10 and ATP production.

B VITAMINS:

B vitamins are necessary for normal cell growth and production of healthy DNA.  Folic acid, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, Niacin, Thiamine, Riboflavin, choline and inositol, biotin.

Beware of medications that inhibit absorption of B vitamins in the gastro-intestinal tract.  Examples include Acid-blockers like:

H2 receptor antagonists Cimetadine, Tagamet, Nizatidine, Axid, Zantac, Ranitidine, Pepcid, Famotidine

Proton Pump Inhibitors Prilosec, Omeprazole, Prevacid, Lansoprazole, Nexium,esomeprazole, Protonix, Aciphex. 

Metformin, which is used for Diabetes and Poly-cystic Ovarian syndrome inhibits intestinal absorption of Vitamin B12 and folic acid.

If you take medications that inhibit the absorption of B vitamins in the digestive tract, supplement with a B complex product that is absorbed through a different route of administration, such as a sublingual melting, dissolving lozenge or a topical patch that sticks to your skin where there is no hair. 

Directions: Dissolve under the tongue daily to absorb directly into the glands and blood stream and bypassing the gastrointestinal tract.

or

Apply topical patch to skin daily or as needed behind the ear or on skin where there is no hair growth.  

ARGININE:

Increases microcirculation perfusion.

 ANTIOXIDANTS:

Antioxidants prevent aging of cells, slow cell growth and revitalize the body.  These include:

Fresh, live raw organic fruits and vegetables

Vitamin E mixed tocopherols and tocotrienols

Vitamin C ascorbate buffered with magnesium

Selenium

Carotenoids

Glutathione

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Methyl sulfonyl methionine MSM

Etc

ALKALINIZING THE BODY:

The body is more susceptible to growing cancer cells in an acid environment. Diet recommendations include supplementing with minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, and zinc.  Remember to balance calcium intake with magnesium supplements (for extensive information on magnesium deficiency caused by excessive calcium intake and on the pathophysiology of magnesium deficiency see http://www.MGwater.com.)  Symptom of magnesium deficiency is foul body odor.

Eat balanced meals and make sure that at least 50% of your diet is vegetables.

All meat, chicken, fish, dairy products, and grains are acid forming foods.

Vegetables are alkalinizing, they provide antioxidants and low glycemic vegetables and they stabilize blood sugar, insulin and cortisol production which influences immune function.

MIND & BODY SUPPORT:

Increase stress management and relaxation techniques.  Gather social and family support.  Utilize techniques that help you relax, feel better and stay positive such as yoga, bio-feedback, chiropractic visits, massage therapy, positive affirmations, visualize yourself healthy.

If you want to live, ask the Creator to give you a complete recovery; and believe that He will send the recovery through your work in detoxifying physically and mentally, and by rebuilding yourself.

NUTRIENTS SPECIFIC FOR BREAST CANCER:

Excess estrogen may be produced or there is an imbalance in the forms of estrogen present in the body. 

Avoid commercially processed meat meaning if the cows ate food with pesticides their fat is higher in toxins and omega 6 fats which compete with omega 3.

Eat organic grass fed meat, chicken and eggs to reduce consumption of hormones, or pesticides which are xenobiotics and hormone mimickers.

Supplement with indole carbinol or DIM, an antiestrogen supplement manufactured from cruciferous vegetables or eat lots of cabbage, and cruciferous vegetables and any plant of the mustard family.

Increase in estrogen decreases copper excretion via the liver and gallbladder.  If there is increased copper, then zinc is decreased.   Decreased zinc will decrease progesterone levels.

Symptoms of increased copper are prolonged heavy menstrual flow, low thyroid function, low adrenal hormone production.  Copper toxicity is seen in deficiency of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, B6, B3, B5, zinc and iron.

Symptoms of decreased zinc are white spots on nails, stretch marks (relative deficiency produces white or silver stretch marks, absolute zinc deficiency produces red or purple stretch marks) frontal headaches, fatigue, emotional volatility, constipation, weight gain, increased blood insulin levels, less storage of insulin, hypoglycemia and food cravings.

Steps to Thyroid Success

Brooklyn Bridge

To make your thyroid work, to make active thyroid hormone, there’s many steps.  Doctors don’t know all the steps to this whole routine.  Living really is a miracle.  To make thyroid stimulating hormone in the brain and to make thyroid hormone T4 in the thyroid and to send it to the body where it has to become active T3 and situate itself inside the receptor site requires many nutrients and these steps.

First you need protein from vegetables and beans, minerals magnesium and zinc, and VitaminB12 from topical patches a route of administration of Vitamin B12 that bypasses  hypochlorhydria in the GI tract,  to make TSH thyroid stimulating hormone in the brain.

Then you need iodine from seaweed; and VitaminC from citrus; Vitamin B2 from whole grains and nutritional yeast and leafy green vegetables. VitaminB2 is needed to make adrenal corticotropin and to make thyroid hormone in the thyroid gland.

For Iodine Dr Michael  Greger MD recommends (p 409 #HowNotToDie) including 2 sheets of plain Nori the seaweed used to make sushi or sprinkling a half teaspoon Arame or Dulse into your food daily to consume iodine.  He cautions against consuming hijiki also spelled hiziki because it has been found to be contaminated with arsenic.  Michael Greger’s recipe for nori crackers is to brush the plain nori sheets with jarred picked ginger juice and lightly sprinkle on wasabi powder bake in oven for five minutes at  300 degrees F.

The thyroid gland makes thyroxine thyroid hormone. To activate it, convert T4 into T3 an enzyme driven by selenium is required so eat Brazil Nuts.  Without selenium we make reverse T3.  We also need VitaminD ideally keep your blood level between  60-80. People with 14 or 20 something and 30 something need to supplement. Take VitaminD a fat soluble vitamin with nuts, seeds or when you eat a salad with apple cider vinegar and extra virgin olive oil or avocado and citrus to improve absorption of VitaminD.

For the receptor sites to be receptive to T3 we need to eat walnuts soaked chia seeds or ground flax seeds (p410 #HowNotToDie) every day for omega3.  The doorways of the receptors sites need to be receptive and if we eat meat and fish and eggs we get stiff and so do our thyroid hormone receptor doorways.  Eating ground flax seeds a phytonutrient precursor of lignans maximizes absorption of phytonutrients.   Prebiotic foods enable us to make good gut bacteria, to  detoxify and boost bioavailability of thyroid hormone.

Other factors that might interfere with thyroid function include fluoride in the drinking water; chlorine from the swimming pool; gut dysbiosis; endocrine disruptors, drinking from plastic water bottles and eating food made in teflon pots; mercury from eating fish or from having fillings or from getting vaccinated; aluminum inhalation from geoengineering; chemical food additives, toxins, emulsifiers.

Taking birth control pills is a big risk factor for hypothyroid; they elevate thyroid binding globulin and deplete Vitamin B6 a cofactor needed for GABa and serotonin production.  (P.115-118 #AMindOfYourOwn kellybroganmd.com)

The keeper of your mitochondria is your thyroid hormone.  Once thyroid hormone gets to peripheral cells the mitochondria are alerted that things are working* something feels better. Story for next time.

Passover Time Schedule

For one week beginning this Friday until the end of Shabbos Saturday night April 30, 2016 every one keeps eight days of Passover this year cause the last day the day we want to welcome Moshiach is on Shabbos this year.

The main thing we change is from grains to root vegetables for our starch based foods.

Sephardic Jews are into eating rice lentils chickpea hummus all these foods are called kitniot in Hebrew. Ashkenazi Jews have the custom of being really stringent and not eating rice beans seeds kitniot or anything that looks like a grain. They become like the Paleo nutritionists who don’t eat grains or beans.

The Torah requires we refrain from eating the 5 grains wheat spelt oats barley rye and anything leavened ir processed longer than 18 minutes. Restricting other foods is acquired customs of people according to their family.

The Yom Tov days for diaspora Jews is Friday night April 22 is the first seder. Shabbos day go to a Passover Shabbos meal. Saturday night April 23 after Sundown is the time for the second seder until daybreak. Israeli Jews may begin the intermediate week days of Passover on Saturday night. The seventh day of Passover begins Thursday night at the beginning of sundown on Thursday April 28, 2016. On the seventh day G-d split the Red Sea for us! At dawn the Egyptians drowned and we collected all the jewels from their chariots.

This year all Jews keep eight days of Passover. At the beginning of sundown Friday afternoon April 29th the eight day of Passover commences. We wish to greet Moshiach and hear Torah lessons from Him on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem Israel this year not next year. We do want Moshiach now. We want to celebrate in the Holy Temple too. The place where it will be ok to eat the meat of the Passover lamb.
