On Saturday night at 9:00 PM EST, I have a blog talk radio show called God’s Health System and Protection. During this show, we pray for people’s health and protection as found in Psalm 91 and also discuss health information found posted on this blog. You are welcome to attend: God’s Heath System and Protection. The information discussed is cutting edge for your health. The show is archived if you cannot attend it live.
The goal of this blog now is to build up your health and especially the immune system to withstand the coming pestilences that are now rampant in America and the world. God gave the knowledge to prepare for pestilences, so take advantage of this information.
The focus is posting articles with great information that can immediately help your health and quality of life.
God bless you.
Effects of Broken Heart
“An association between biological changes on the cellular level and both childhood adversity and psychiatric disorders has been identified by researchers. These changes in the form of telomere shortening and alterations of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), are important in the aging process.”
“… found that men and women who had suffered adversity in childhood were more likely to die before age of 50 than those who had not.
The researchers compared premature death rates among more than 15,000 people to their experiences of adversity at ages 7, 11 and 16. This included spending time in care, suffering from neglect, parental separation or having a family member in prison.
For women, the likelihood of dying before age 50 increased with the amount of adversity they had suffered in childhood. Women who had suffered one negative experience by age 16 were 66 per cent more likely to die before the age of 50 than those who had not faced any adversity. Women who had two or more adverse experiences in childhood had an 80 per cent increased risk of premature death.
Men who had suffered two or more traumatic events in childhood were 57 per cent more likely to die by the time they were 50 than those who had not experienced any adversity growing up.”
“A new article finds epigenetic effect of psychological difficulty in childhood on an important regulator of stress response. The research may help explain a biological link between adversity in youth and later depression or anxiety.”
“When a person injures their knee, it becomes inflamed. When a person has a cold, their throat becomes inflamed. This type of inflammation is the body’s natural and protective response to injury. Interestingly, there is growing evidence that a similar process happens when a person experiences psychological trauma. Unfortunately, this type of inflammation can be destructive.”
“Exposure to childhood maltreatment increases the risk for most psychiatric disorders as well as many negative consequences of these conditions. A new study provides important insight into one of the most extreme outcomes, suicide.”
Low Vitamin D Triggers Asthma Anyone under 18 with breathing problems should make sure they are obtaining all the Vitamin D3 they need. A simple thing like Vitamin D supplement could relieve a lot of suffering.
Vitamin D Protects Your Brain Vitamin D3 is one of your main protections from dementia and related brain functioning problems associated with aging.
Studies have shown that vitamin D3 deficiency is very common in the elderly. This makes sense because so many are house-bound and avoid sun exposure. Many also have GI problems that interfere with vitamin D absorption. While the average diet is a poor source of vitamin D, the diets of many senior citizens are even worse. Studies have shown that vitamin D3 can protect the normal aging brain from neuron loss, especially in the memory areas of the brain, the hippocampus. This means that a higher intake of vitamin D3 can protect your memory.”
Vitamin D May Protect Lung Function in Smokers It is best not to smoke at all as it is SO dangerous to a person’s health. May the Lord Jesus be glorified by His people being freed from the addiction to tabacco.
Higher but Not Lower Doses of Vitamin D Are Effective in Fracture Risk Reduction in Older Adults Vitamin D is very important for the elderly.
“Taking between 800 IUs and 2,000 IUs of vitamin D per day significantly reduced the risk of most fractures, including hip, wrist and forearm in both men and women age 65 and older,” said Dawson-Hughes, the study’s senior author. “Importantly, we saw there was no benefit to taking Vitamin D supplements in doses below 800 IUs per day for fracture prevention.”
“Inflammatory bowel diseases are associated with a decrease in the diversity of bacteria in the gut, but a new study has linked the same illnesses to an increase in the diversity of viruses.”
How Your Gut Flora Influences Your Health If anyone takes antibiotics they should immediately take probiotics when finished.
“Every course of antibiotics tends to wipe out the beneficial bacteria and that gives a window of opportunity for the pathogens to proliferate, to grow uncontrolled, and to occupy new niches in your gut. The beneficial flora recovers, but different species of it take between two weeks to two months to recover in the gut and that’s a window of opportunity for various pathogens to overgrow. “
A Compelling Documentary About the Causes of Antibiotic Resistance, and How to Fix It This is a great article and make sure that you read it.
“Collectively, microorganisms outweigh the human population by 100 million times. They’re all around you, and inside you. Your gastrointestinal tract alone houses some 100 trillion bacteria. The microorganisms in your gut, commonly referred to as your microbiome, are responsible for about 80 percent of your immune system function, and these gut bacteria outnumber your body’s cells by about 10 to one.”
“The occurrence of bacterial infection in India is among the highest in the world, and Indians take more antibiotics per capita than anyone else. Antibiotics are freely sold over the counter in India, and despite efforts to curb their overuse, experts concede that a large percentage of bacterial strains in the country are now resistant to nearly all drugs.While some claim that drug-resistant strains in India are mostly confined to hospitals, others are concerned that the bacteria are finding their way into the environment and, in many cases, are being passed from mothers to infants before they are born. Hospitals are certainly a major breeding ground for superbugs — particularly in India, where overcrowded facilities and less-than-ideal sanitary conditions exacerbate the problem.”
“Poor diet is another enemy to healthy gut bacteria. Sugar is enemy number one, as it actually nourishes the bad or pathogenic bacteria, yeast, and fungi in your gut. Hence, dramatically limiting or eliminating sugar and fructose is an essential step to optimize your gut health. Processed foods also promote bad bacteria – partly due to the high fructose content in most processed foods, but also because of the processing, which essentially “kills” the food.”
Coconut Oil — Your Smart Alternative to Those Other Oils This is actually an advertisement for coconut oil but it is loaded with great information. I highly recommend that every day you take both coconut and olive oil.
“Icredibly, coconut oil contains one of the same compounds — lauric acid — found in mother’s milk! And lauric acid is the predominant type of MCFA found in coconut oil. Fortunately for our health, lauric acid in both breast milk and coconut oil transforms when consumed into a substance called monolaurin, the actual compound responsible for helping to strengthen the immune system. In fact, a great volume of research has been done establishing the ability of lauric acid to enhance immunity. What researchers found was that this medium-chain fatty acid derivative actually disrupts the lipid (or fatty) membranes of the offending organisms. The lauric acid in coconut oil is one effortless way to help strengthen your immune system
Choline In Eggs And Meat May Influence Gene Expression From Infancy To Adulthood This is a very important article for pregnant women. Also, eggs are critical in getting enough choline in your system. Once again, the egg is a great source of critical nutrition.
“Choline is an essential nutrient your body makes in small amounts, however you must consume it through your diet to get enough. In adults, choline helps keep your cell membranes functioning properly, plays a role in nerve communications, prevents the buildup of homocysteine in your blood (elevated levels are linked to heart disease) and reduces chronic inflammation.”
“Humans are unable to make vitamin B and obtain it mostly from diet. Because bacteria can synthesise vitamin B, our immune system uses this as a point of difference to recognise infection,” he said.
“Given the relative abundance of the MAIT cells lining mucosal and other surfaces, such as the intestine, the mouth, lungs, it is quite probable that they play a protective role in many infections from thrush to tuberculosis.”
“This brings us to Epsom salt. Known scientifically as hydrated magnesium sulfate, Epsom salt is rich in both magnesium and sulfate. While both magnesium and sulfate can be poorly absorbed through the stomach, studies show increased magnesium levels from soaking in a bath enriched with Epsom salt! Magnesium and sulfate are both easily absorbed through the skin. Sulfates play an important role in the formation of brain tissue, joint proteins and the proteins that line the walls of the digestive tract. They stimulate the pancreas to generate digestive enzymes and are thought to help detoxify the body of medicines and environmental contaminants.”
GMO and Contaminated Food
“Its first attempt to develop genetically engineered grass ended disastrously for Scotts Miracle-Gro. The grass escaped into the wild from test plots in Oregon in 2003, dooming the chances that the government would approve the product for commercial use. Yet Scotts is once again developing genetically modified grass that would need less mowing, be a deeper green and be resistant to damage from the popular weedkiller Roundup. But this time the grass will not need federal approval before it can be field-tested and marketed.”
Your physical health is very important, but of even greater importance is your spiritual health. Man suffers from a fatal spiritual disease called sin, which always leads to death.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
