Stop Demonizing Food!

Dr. Mercola wrote an article about *Wheat* that bothers me.  Though there maybe a correlation between consumption of wheat and poor health; there are a few things that need to be taken into account.  First, when we use correlational findings to find causation we run the risk of missing out on the whole story; and in this case several variables aren't being acknowledged.  One HUGE variable that people don't seem to acknowledge is that most Americans have a damaged gut and simply CANNOT digest wheat because of that.  Another issue that I was discussing with two other women the other day is that wheat is no longer what it used to be.  There was even GMO wheat found in Oregon and no one knows where it came from! 

We need to stop demonizing food!  Wheat; REAL (organic) whole wheat is food.  It IS possible that real wheat no longer exist in America; I can accept that.  To say, however, that wheat is bad news or bad for the health is simply not true.  Some of us need to heal before consuming it and some may never be able to consume it, but that doesn't make it bad. 


I don't believe it, but we're back!  I mentioned that we will be expanding, but the deletion of this blog was NEVER in the plans.  I inquired about it and to my surprise we're back.   I'm very relieved.  This will make the expansion much easier.

I'm sure you've noticed my lack of activity in the last couple of months.  Well, there is good reason for that.  You see, BWMFs is growing beyond that which I've envisioned!  I may even be moving BWMFs to another location and soon.  If I do, when I do, I'll be sure to alert all of my much valued readers of the new web address.  I will keep all of the information at this location up to ensure that everyone is aware of the move, and I will personally alert those who have linked to my site so that they can make a new link to the new location.

Blogger has served me well for the three years that BWMFs has been around, however, what I want to offer has become too big for Blogger and it's almost time to move on.  Even though this is FAR from goodbye, I want to thank everyone for reading.  I'm excited about the next step and everything the Lord has in store for me!

Candida Cleanse

The GAPS diet is working, but this nutritionist actually gave me some pointers that I may be able to try along with GAPS.  Candida is a pest.  When you fight it, it fights back.  This individual gave some pointers that I could use.  Some of her suggestions aren't GAPS friendly.  Many have found relief via the GAPS diet so I'm going to stick with it, but her suggestions may be helpful too.

My Gut Bugs

I've mentioned that I've been on the intro GAPS diet several times.  In the intro part of the diet raising your gut bug intake is KEY to healing.  I've been pouring fermented whey and sauerkraut juice into almost all of my soups; I've made a nice fermented coconut soda (yum-may!) that I sip on throughout the day; and I've been eating a LOT of kefir (from raw cow and raw goat milk).  I've even made fermented fish.  I've got to say, I was pretty scared at first, but I had some for breakfast and WOW!  It's actually pretty good, I've got to say!

I've been seeing improvements in my health like I couldn't imagine too!  I've had so much energy this week.  I mean, I was able to get up in the morning without feeling REALLY groggy or sick (which happened very often in the past).  I'm starting to see that getting out of bed in the morning ISN'T suppose to be that painful after all.  I get MORE out of my day then ever.  My skin isn't dry and flaky like it used to be.  And I can see that the Candida is finally going away... FINALLY!

The only problem is the die-off.  That drove me crazy at times and it's something that is keeping me from traveling for a while too.  But I am determined to conquer this and get my health back!  So bring on the gut bugs!

How the USDA Can Make or Break Public Health

It makes me sad that the US government tries to make such a strong case against people and families taking care of themselves.  They say that they do these things for our safety... really?  How can that be possible when the FDA approves of things and the CDC even pushes things that have historically made many people ill?

I'm sure that there are individuals who work for the FDA, CDC, USDA and for our new socialized healthcare system that believe that these organizations are well needed.  I'm sure that they are ALL organizations that can be useful if there wasn't (what often appears to be) a destructive agenda.

In my opinion, these organizations have, at least in the last 15 years but perhaps longer, done more harm than good.  I wish parents, and in a few cases individuals, were allowed more control over their health and the health of their families.

The 9 Irrefutable Benefits of Cholesterol in the Diet

The Healthy Home Economist hit the nail on the head here.  Fat and cholesterol both have unfortunate reputations in today's America.  We fail to remember that they are nutrients!  We were so grossly misinformed of the "dangers" of fat and cholesterol.  Usually, the health issues that are said to be caused from fat and cholesterol are caused by sugar.

High fat foods are most important in the GAPS diet.  Especially in the second stage of the introductory diet.  It heals the gut like nothing else!  And no wonder... fat cell wall are almost all lipids.

In the article below, the Healthy Home Economist goes more into detail about the benefits of cholesterol.  According to my prior research on cholesterol, she hit the nail on the head!
