[Ice Cream] One of your favorite foods is killing you!

Ice cream, junk food or health food

Mouth-watering Ice cream  that will      make you healthy instead of sick.      

ice cream1

Ice cream, almost everyone’s favorite. OK! So last week I said I would talk to you about eating ice cream. Some of you may ask, “I thought you were into healthy eating? Why would you eat ice cream?” Well my grand-kids make me do it. Yes, that’s right, it’s not my fault. It is my grand-kids. They are constantly pleading with me, “buy us ice cream”. I have no choice; what am I to do? So occasionally I stop at Dairy Queen and eat ice cream with the kiddos. I also eat it at birthday parties, and you might guess with 13 kids and 40 grand-kids there are quite a few birthday parties. I always end up feeling crummy after eating ice cream. I actually get a craving for milk, after eating ice cream, like it might be the antidote to the poison I just consumed.

Some people may ask just the opposite question, what’s not healthy about ice cream? So here are some things I have found that may be causing you and me to feel sick or crummy after eating ice cream.  To start with it is loaded with cancer producing, disease producing, sugar. Or it has some alternate form of sugar like high fructose corn syrup, which will also shut down your immune system for 24 hours. In Proverbs 23:1-2 God says to put a knife to your throat if you plan to eat that food. (We will cover that verse in depth in a future blog). Ice cream often has many life shortening chemicals in it. Some ice cream, like Breyers, is made with “modified milk ingredients” most ice-cream contains “cellulose”(wood fiber), this ice-cream will not melt. If you leave it out for ten days, it will not be melted and unlike home-made ice cream it will be covered with mold.

According to an article in Natural News, dated August 13, 2008, “store bought ice cream is dangerous to your health. Many commercial ice creams today are simply chemical concoctions presented in appealing packaging designed to sell a product that is not fit for human consumption. Everything from hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, and dry milk solids are used to produce something still allowed to be called ice cream. Many ice creams are also filled with air to double the volume. Not a dangerous practice, just less fulfilling. Some pretty frightening sounding chemicals like caroxymethyl cellulose, butyraldehyde, and amyl acetate are additives in some commercial ice creams. How about some diethyl glycol — a cheap chemical used to take the place of eggs, which is also used in anti-freeze and paint removers.”1

So, if you are like me and still want to eat ice cream occasionally and not die or destroy your immune system, then here is a recipe that will make you healthier instead of sicker. It contains nothing but good food, full of protein, calcium, salt and health producing God-made honey. (see previous blog on honey, and future blog on salt)

Some of the grand-kids camped out at our house this summer and one day they begged me for ice cream. I asked them if they had ever made ice cream and they said no. So we pulled out the hand-crank ice cream maker (I have an electric one, but thought they needed the exercise, hee hee). My daughter Leah, pulled up a recipe off the internet and I switched out the sugar for honey, one for one. I also added a little extra salt; because I love salt. When I was a kid making ice cream, a little of the rock salt would always fall into the ice cream and that was my favorite part.  Some people don’t like extra salt in their ice cream, so make it the way you like it. The bible says salt is good, scientist say that it is an essential nutrient, you can’t live without salt. Dr Joel Wallach says, “salt to taste and you will live longer”. If you want your ice cream more or less sweet, simply add or reduce the amount of honey. Experiment, till you get the flavor you like. I love to throw in berries near the end. If you put them in sooner, they will ad color to the ice-cream but be pretty unrecognizable in the end product. If you add them later, they will be more intact. This recipe has the normal amount of salt and will make about a gallon of health producing ice cream. Seriously you could eat this three times a day and just get stronger.

God wants us to enjoy the food he created. Some people believe that if you eat healthy you will lose all the enjoyment in eating. This is illustrated in the following story about an older married couple that were health food fanatics. They had taken such good care of their bodies that they were now in their eighties and were still going strong. Unfortunately, they were the victims of a car accident and both went to heaven at the same time. When they got to heaven St. Peter took them to their new mansion. It was beyond anything they had ever seen and the couple was overjoyed but the husband took Peter aside and explained that though they loved the house, they probably couldn’t afford it. Peter laughed and told the man that he was in heaven and the house was free. Next he showed the man that in his back yard was the most beautiful eighteen-hole golf course ever seen. This golf course changed to a new fantastic course every day. The man thanked Peter profusely but again expressed a concern for how expensive the greens fees might be. Peter laughed and told him that there was no charge for the use of the golf course. Next Peter took them to a banquet table spread with the most beautiful and delicious food imaginable. Once more the man said that though the food looked very good, he and his wife couldn’t eat it because it wasn’t health food, it had way too many calories. Finally, Peter, a little exasperated, said “listen; this is heaven, everything is free, nothing is harmful; you can eat all you want and never get fat or unhealthy.” On hearing this the man froze in deep thought, then turning to his wife he blurted out, “If it wasn’t for you and your lousy bran muffins we could have been here a long time ago.” These people were living the lie that health food has to be flavorless and bland.

Today salt is considered an unhealthy choice. The last few times I went to a restaurants there was no salt on the tables. It seem that it is politically incorrect to eat salt (Sodium). I will cover this in detail in the next blog but let me just drop this one bomb first. Thousands of people die each year for a lack of salt. When they are taken to the hospital the first thing the hospital does is give them a saline IV, which is a saltwater IV. Often this is the only way to save their lives. Restricting salt could kill you and restricting salt will make your food taste bland. Salt enhances almost all flavors. So salt till it tastes too salty, then cut back a little. This will give you the optimum flavor and optimum health.

So here is the God approved recipe for ice cream. The ingredients are very close to the ingredients in a protein drink.

* 6 large eggs                                                                                                    * 2 1/2 cups Honey                                                                                            * 1 tablespoon vanilla extract                                                                          * 4 1/2 cups heavy cream, preferably raw, not ultra-pasteurized                * 5 cups whole milk                                                                                          * ½ tablespoon salt                                                                                                       Heat this mixture on mild heat to, 165 Deg. Fahrenheit, then cool or refrigerate till ready to use.

Put this in your ice-cream maker and crank away. It will also produce strong arm muscles. You can store any leftover ice cream in the freezer and it will remain healthy for a long long time, that is, if you don’t eat it all right away.

 If you do not have an ice-cream maker, the link below will show you how to make small batches of ice cream in a bag, it is great fun, and so healthy. Just substitute my healthy recipe for their sickness producing recipe and follow all the other directions. Make up the gallon batch and keep it in the refrigerator, then pour out a cup or two into your zip lock bag each time you want to make a bowl of ice-cream, and follow the instructions in this youtube video.

GOD CREATED MAN. GOD CREATED FOOD. GOD KNOWS WHAT FOOD HE CREATED FOR MAN TO ENJOY, GOD KNOWS WHAT FOOD WAS NOT FOR MAN TO ENJOY, AND… HE IS NOT TRYING TO KEEP IT A SECRET.

God says that milk is good, honey is good, salt is good, eggs are good. People who eat these things live longer happier lives. I am sixty-four and just a few weeks ago I played in a scrimmage soccer game against two of my grand-kids classic team. I felt great, no pulled muscles, no aches and pains. Since we began this quest to follow God’s advice on health and wellness I have not missed a day’s work due to illness. We started this quest over forty years ago. God said he would remove all sickness from us, (Exodus 23:20-26) and he has. I have been living a sickness free life for over forty years and you can start living that sickness free life too. Somebody is going to live sickness free, might as well be you! Somebody is going to live to be 100+, might as well be you! Some old fart is going to score a goal on a cocky teenager, might as well be you!

ic cream 4OK, that’s not me, but it could have been. According to John chapter 1 and Hebrews 1:2; Jesus created the heavens and the earth and everything in them. Everything includes Man and Food for man. His instructions are in the Word for our benefit. Happy eating.

Exercise, how much is enough?

Jeanne Calment 122 years old

Exercise less, eat ice-cream and live longer!

Exercise, how much is enough?

Experts are constantly telling us that we need to exercise more in order to live well and long. God’s word says that our strength should equal our days, and that he wants you to live a sickness free and full lifespan. Genesis 6:3 states that a full lifespan is approximately 120 years. Many people in the Bible lived this long, and people today are living this long, so why not you? Somebody is going to live a full lifespan, might as well be you.

Jeanne Calment is one person who accomplished this and it wasn’t because of her genetic makeup. She outlived her daughter and grandson who carried her genetic make-up.  So contrary to what we have been told, the Bible says it is what you do, not your genes, that determines how well and how long you will live.


exercise 6

Jeanne Calment Did not live to be 122 by strenuous exercise, she was reportedly neither athletic nor fanatical about her health2. She did stay active with varied pursuits like taking up fencing at the age of 85. She went for leisure walks till she was 114. The idea that militant physical exercise is your ticket to a long and full lifestyle is popular but is not biblical, and doesn’t work. So, is exercise necessary and if so how much is enough?

                 I Timothy 4:8                                                                                        Physical training (Exercise-KJV) is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.”

 Paul was telling Timothy that there was value in physical training but that it was not the most important thing; that godliness has eternal value. The question then is, should we spend time exercising our bodies when they will not be of any value in heaven? In heaven we will be getting new bodies, so why spend time on them down here?  Paul was letting Timothy know that there was some value if it was kept in perspective.  Jesus gave us that perspective.  He told the disciples that the reason they could not pray with him, but instead fell asleep, was not because they didn’t want to, instead, it was because their bodies were weak.  His statement to them is recorded in the Gospel of Matthew 26:41…

Your spirit is willing but your body is weak.”

Our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit and need to be strong enough to get the job done that God has called you and me to do.  Physical training is of some value.  But it is not the end-all and be-all that many profess.  We are encouraged in Proverbs not to be sluggards or lazy.  In the Ten Commandments we are admonished to work six days, and rest one day.  In Genesis 3:19 we are told that we will work by the sweat of our brow.  There needs to be some sweating.  It is interesting to note that people who live to be over one hundred have engaged in some kind of regular work that kept them physically strong and healthy without overdoing it.

I would suggest that you do something six days a week that gives your body a cardiovascular workout.  That is, it elevates your heart rate and increases your breathing. Walking is great, it’s not only great exercise, but it is relaxing.  Doctor Ogie Shaw, an expert in exercise, says that walking one mile per day will reduce a woman’s chances of getting cancer by half3, wow, that is substantial.

In a study published by Readers Digest April 2005, researchers at the Cooper Institute in Golden Colorado, found that three hours of exercise per week was just as effective in combating mild and moderate depression as antidepressant drugs.  People who exercise just one hour and 20 minutes a week had no improvement.4

Now for some cautions:

We have been sold a bill of goods.  We have been told that the more we exercise, the better our health will be, and the longer we will live.

To quote Dr. Joel Wallach, “That one message has done more harm than all the wars in recent history.” The average athlete, depending on the severity of the sport, lives approximately 62-68 years. That is, they live between 7 and 13 years less than the average American who does very little in the way of exercise.  One hundred thousand athletes die each year during sporting events. According to the Center For Disease Control, these one hundred thousand athletes under the age of 50 died suddenly from cardiomyopathy heart attacks or ruptured aneurisms. Many of these young men and women, boys and girls looked incredibly healthy and had beautiful, strong muscles. So why are they dying by the thousands?  After doing tens of thousands of autopsies, Doctor Joel Wallach has come to the conclusion that most of these unfortunate athletes were suffering from trace mineral deficiencies brought on by regular strenuous exercise without replenishing vital nutrients.5   Our local community went into shock when a 15 year old athlete collapsed during a workout at swim practice. Andrew Nygaard died of cardiac arrest. Mayor Willis Vandusen called him “the most talented swimmer that Astoria has ever produced.6 Andrew, believing the current advice that says, the more you exercise the healthier you will be. His friends said that he was a fanatic about exercise. Is it possible to exercise too much?

Most athletes sweat more in one day than most people sweat in a year. When we sweat, our sweat does not just contain water and salt, it is also rich in 60 essential minerals. If we do not eat foods rich in nutrients, or are not supplementing, we will eventually succumb to some type of mineral deficiency disease. One common mineral deficiency disease is caused by a lack of copper. Another is caused by inadequate selenium intake. A copper deficiency can lead to a ruptured aneurysm. A selenium deficiency can lead to a cardiomyopathy heart attack.  Both are generally fatal and are common among athletes.

Jim Fix, the famous runner, believed that if you ran 10 miles per day, seven days a week that you could live to be over 100.  Note that God said to rest one day a week.  Jim Fix either ignored God’s advice or never heard it. He faithfully took his own advice, running seven days a week for 20 years.  He did not supplement with vitamins and minerals.  He looked as fit as a human could look, but in 1984 at the age of 52, 15 years short of the average American couch potato, he had five heart attacks and died,

                                        According to Dr. Wallach,

                        “Exercise without supplementation is suicide.”

 

exercise 5

Dr. Michael P. Artees was a runner in junior high, high school and college.  After graduating from college, he continued to run every day, not taking Sunday off.  Again, it should be noted that the Bible advises us to rest one day a week.  Dr. Artees instead took his own advice instead of God’s advice.  He believed in it so much that he offered a 10% discount to any of his patients that would run with him at least two weeks per month.  So many of his patients took him up on the offer that it was said, “He looks like Forest Gump running down the road with his disciples.” But… at the ripe old age of 38 while running with his followers, he fell over and died of a cardiomyopathy heart attack, a simple selenium deficiency.5

                                                     Proverbs 13:13                                                                  “He who despises the word will be destroyed. But he who fears the commandment will be rewarded.”

In contrast, Jeanne Calmet of France, a highly publicized centenarian, led a leisured lifestyle, getting regular exercise while pursuing hobbies such as tennis, cycling, swimming and roller-skating,1 Jeanne leisurely rode her bike till the age of 100, she took leisurely walks till she was 114, she did not overdo it.  She rested, and she was regular about her exercise. Consequently, she  outlived seventeen french presidents. She also outlived the 47 year old lawyer who wrote up a reverse mortgage for her when she was 90. He fully expected she would pass soon and leave him with her house after only a few years of payments to her. She lived another 32 years, long after he had passed away, leaving his relatives to continue to pay Jeanne a nice monthly sum till she died. His family eventually paid her many times the value of her home.

exercise 4

My point? A little exercise is good, but if you are doing a lot of strenuous work or exercise you need to be extra careful to eat Biblically and supplement with vitamins and minerals. My wife Shary and I take American Youngevity vitamins and minerals; they are recommended by Dr. Joel Wallach. We will talk more about vitamins in a future blog devoted to just that, what supplements are best and why.

Loose weight and get well while you sleep

rest makes you smarter

Lose weight, boost your immune system and get  smarter while you sleep and rest,    with this one secret.

               Psalm 127:1,2                                                                                          “Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stands guard in vain.It is in vain you rise early and stay up late, eating the bread of anxious toil, For he gives sleep to those he loves.

sleep

 According to–Dr. Jeanne Wilson, “Our bodies pull in toxins from the food we eat and the environment around us every single day. And while it is ideal to cleanse your body about four times a year with the Optimal Cleanse, there is also a trick that can help detoxify your body all year long. And it’s easy! Here’s all you have to do: Go to bed by 10:30 p.m. and make sure that you sleep in the dark.  Yes, that’s it! This time is key to a successful sleep, which in turn allows the liver and other organs to fully detoxify the body and improve hormonal balance.

In Chinese Medicine we know that the liver cleans the blood between 1 and 3 a.m. and you must already be in a deep sleep before 1 a.m. to get the full detoxification benefits of the liver energies.  Sufficient rest at the right time and following the body’s natural circadian rest rhythms of sleeping when dark and up with the light is essential for healthy metabolism – and a healthy metabolism helps control weight gain!”2

 God is opposed to us getting up early and staying up late. It is God’s will that we get enough sleep.  In the book “None of These Diseases”, a study notes that 26% of men who had suffered heart attacks had been working over 70 hours a week. Evidently your heart needs sleep.

According to the National Sleep Foundation, “Researchers in the Netherlands and United Kingdom compared the white blood cell counts of 15 healthy young men under normal and severely sleep-deprived conditions. The greatest changes were seen in the white blood cells”1. What they call normal sleep-deprivation will affect your immune system. Your white blood cells not only fight the common cold and flu, but also destroy cancer cells. I was talking with a woman just this week who told me that her entire family was in shock. Her mother had just been diagnosed with lung cancer and the doctors believe the cancer is spreading throughout her body. The woman told me she and her family were devastated, because their mother never smoked and always exercised. From what they had been led to believe those two things should have kept their mother safe from lung cancer, so what went wrong?

All of us have cancer cells in our bodies but when our immune system is functioning properly our white blood cells will constantly find and destroy these cells. But if our immune system is weakened by a lack of sleep these cancer cells can multiply.

According to the National Sleep Foundation “studies have associated sleep restriction and sleep deprivation with the development of diseases like obesity, diabetes and hypertension. Others have shown that sleep helps sustain the functioning of the immune system, and that chronic sleep loss is a risk factor for immune system impairment.”1

God wants us to get adequate sleep. In Psalm 127:1-2 he says “he gives sleep to those he loves.” He is offering sleep, but are we taking it? Usually, for me it is a lack of faith that causes me to rise early and stay up late. I get into the habit of believing that I can solve all my problems by working longer and harder. At the beginning of the Psalm God says that it is vain or useless to build and useless to guard, if God is not building and God is not guarding. If we listen to God and obey him, by going to bed early and getting up at a reasonable hour, he will build our house and he will guard our city. Science is now confirming that if we get enough sleep, God will build our immune system and guard our bodies from disease.

In the December 2004 edition of Time magazine researchers were quoted to say, “sleep is primarily for your mind.” They went on to say that, “your muscles need only brief periods of inactivity to recuperate, but your mind is another matter altogether. There is an incorrect sentiment that is growing rapidly in our society; it is the belief that sleep is for sissies. In contrast, researchers are proving that our minds actually get smarter while we sleep.  In studies, people increased their ability to solve a problem from 23% to 59% after a good night’s sleep.  They also had some suggestions for a good night’s sleep. “3
sleep2  A) Try to sleep at the same time each night.                                                 B) Don’t drink caffeinated drinks or eat chocolate in the p.m. and try not       to eat anything three hours before bedtime.                                                 C) Warm or hot milk will improve your sleep, while alcohol will do the           opposite.                                                                                                    D) Arguments, computers and TV, less than a half hour before bedtimes,         are detrimental.                                                                                         E) If you are still awake 20 minutes after going to bed, get up. (I suggest          you read your Bible until you get sleepy.)

The Book of Proverbs gives some similar advice for people who have a hard time getting good sleep. In Proverbs 3:21-24 we are told…

My son, let them (Biblical wisdom and understanding) not depart from your eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion: So they will be life to your soul, and grace to your neck. Then you will walk safely in your way, and your foot will not stumble. When you lie down, you will not be afraid: yes, you will lie down, and your sleep will be sweet. NKJV

 The book of Ecclesiastes also gives some insight that has helped me on numerous occasions. The sleep of a laborer is sweet”, Ecclesiastes 5:12. In other words, regular physical labor or exercise will improve your sleep. If I go through a period of a few days with poor or fitful sleep, it is generally because I am stressed out about something and I have not been exercising. If I start exercising every day and go for a run just before bed time, that will usually do the trick, my sleep is like a baby again.

So how much sleep is enough? According to Dr. Pierre-Herve Luppi at the University of Lyons in France, “If you feel sleepy the following day, if you have episodes of sleepiness or a feeling of major fatigue throughout the day, it means you’re not sleeping enough.”

God loves you and me more than we know, he wants us to trust him like little children trust their parents. While we are sleeping he remains awake and will protect us. Jesus slept in the boat while his disciples were freaking out about a storm. When they woke Jesus from his sleep he said, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?”

sleep3

Let’s trust Jesus more and ourselves less, let’s get to bed early and take a nap when we are tired. According to scientists, our immune systems will thank us, our waist lines will improve and our families will get to see us live out a full lifespan.
