Fungus Among Us

Pretty Fungus

Fungus is an amazing, beautiful and often delicious life form.  All life forms are here to serve and thrive.  Parasitic fungus that invades the human body is “serving” as a very important messenger.  It is delivering a lifesaving message that if left undelivered leads to chronic disease and even death.

As a food and medical intuitive, I have known for some time that fungal overgrowth in the body is a very common condition today that goes most often overlooked and unchecked by the medical establishment. Our high sugar, processed food, fast food; fast paced stressed out life style has created this hidden epidemic.

It is the most common condition affecting about 60% of the clients I test for food compatibility (people with fungus are not compatible with foods that are fungus, feed fungus or harbor fungus).

I recently ran across this study by the Mayo Clinic, totally confirming in 1999 that most all sinus infections are fungal. (http://www.princeton.edu/~gpmenos/mold_facts/MayoClinicStudyImplicatesFungusasCauseofChronicSinusi.pdf).

Fungus overgrowth can also result in pneumonia, cancers and a host of auto-immune disorders.   Viruses and fungal infections are not eliminated with antibiotics; however they are often mistakenly treated like bacterial infections.   The over-use of antibiotics actually encourages more fungal growth by killing off the body’s stores of “good” bacteria (nature’s army), further suppressing the immune system.

The over-use of antibiotics has created “Super Bugs”.  http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/article/eight-ways-to-protect-yourself-from-superbugs/

Fungal infections are very common in cancer patients who immune systems have been intentionally suppressed by cancer treatments like chemotherapy.

OBGYNs now regularly prescribe a strong probiotic (good bacteria) along with an antibiotic to avoid yeast infections (fungus overgrowth).

Fungal infections begin with an imbalance in the body and thrive on acid and sugar.  When the body becomes too acidic, it becomes prime “real estate” for fungus, bacteria and viruses.  Bodies with fungus crave sugar and carbohydrate rich foods liked baked goods.

I love this analogy a client gave me.  He said, “Now I get it!  It’s like a swimming pool.  When the pH is out of balance, it grows stuff.  When the body is out of balance, it grows stuff”.

The imbalance is a result of what we eat and what we think.  Stressful thoughts affect the body at the cell level, making it hard to maintain a healthy pH no matter what the diet.  (https://affirmativethinking.wordpress.com/science-of-affirmations-proof/).

The body knows exactly what it needs to create balance and optimize every system and function.  If we can know what the body needs and provide it; eliminate what it doesn’t need from the diet; and get the mind out of the way; it will do what it is designed to do – make repairs and regenerate.

There is only one way to rid the body of fungus; cut off the food supply and raise the body’s pH.  The fungus will then leave to find a more hospitable host or it will die.  All of life is striving for life; even fungus.

Below are some helpful diet tips to restore balance to the body and kick your unwelcome guest to the curb.  Most of the following information is based on hundreds of “food intuitive” sessions over the last 4 years and “revelation” (knowledge revealed – not learned).

NOTE: Not all of the foods suggested below for consumption are compatible with every body.  Our bodies are as unique as our DNA with ever-changing needs depending on what is going on physically, mentally and even by what was consumed the day before.   For instance, if you ate a pound of spinach yesterday you may not be compatible with it today.   If you want to know exactly what your body wants you can contact me at gail@foodrevelation.com.

  1. Eliminate all sugar including honey and maple syrup.  If you need some “sweet” use Stevia or Birch Xylitol (Zyla is one brand)
  2. Eliminate all grains with the exception of quinoa.
  3. Eliminate all potatoes and winter squash, corn, carrots and sweet peas. (Steamed or boiled sweet potatoes are compatible to some people with fungus).
  4. Beets are good in moderation with protein.
  5. Eliminate nightshades (zucchini, eggplant, white potatoes, pumpkin and most peppers).  The acidic body is also inflamed (acid eats flesh inside and out).  Nightshades irritate inflammation.
  6. Add lemon to the diet.  Lemon water, lemon on veggies, etc.  If upper GI is inflamed take it slow at first until it cools off a little.  You will know if the lemon burns going down.  Once assimilated it is alkalizing to the body.
  7. Eliminate processed table salt.  Replace with Himalayan or real sea salt for alkalizing minerals.
  8. Eat a lot of green stuff; asparagus, cucumber, spinach, swiss chard, kale, sea veggies.
  9. Cook most veggies (steam, sauté, roast “al dente”) or drink them processed in a smoothie (whole veggies – not juiced). The inflamed body needs its energy for repair.  Easy to digest food saves energy.  Ask your health care provider about adding a multi-enzyme supplement if you consume mostly cooked food.  Enzymes are found in raw food.
  10. Limit fruit to berries and cherries (low sugar).  One to two ½ cup servings a day with protein and fat (smoothie is perfect).  No dried fruit.
  11. Restrict starches to one serving per meal (good rule to follow for life).  For instance: don’t have lentils with quinoa or sweet potato.
  12. Eliminate all process foods and baked goods.
  13. Eliminate cashews, peanuts and anything in the orange family (harbor fungus)
  14. Eliminate all legumes except lentils and occasionally lima beans and spit peas.
  15. Eliminate mushrooms and sprouts (fungus and harbor fungus).
  16. If a meat eater, reduce or temporarily eliminate meat and most dairy* until the body is balanced.  All animal sourced food is acidic with the exception of *yogurt, *kefir and *cottage cheese. Turkey is the least acidic.  Eating too much meat is one way to get out of balance fast.  Replace meat with high protein veggies like; lentils, quinoa, hemp hearts, nutritional yeast, asparagus, kale (power house), all greens* broccoli, seeds, avocado.  *For some reason, mustard greens have never tested compatible to my clients with fungus.
  17. Read labels for hidden sugar (plant-based milks often add sugar).
  18. Eat lots of garlic, onion and leeks.
  19. Do not drink beverages 30 minutes before or after meals.  Doing so dilutes the digestive juices necessary to digest food (good life long rule).  Never, ever drink high pH water at meal time.  It will neutralize stomach acid and totally interrupt digestion.
  20. No alcohol, fermented veggies or beverages (kombucha).
  21. Eliminate coffee or replace with a lower acid, chicory blend (French Market from Louisiana is my fav).  If you drink a lot of coffee or caffienated beverages – do not eliminate it suddenly unless you want to suffer.  FYI – Some bodies love a little caffeine.
  22. Important note:  As the body finds it balance normal compatibility is restored.  It is important to add healthy acidic foods back into the diet to maintain optimum balance. The body can be too alkaline as well (harder to do – but possible).  Normal average alkaline to acidic ratio for healthy pH maintenance is 60% alkaline and 40% acidic.

Most Important Tip:  Gratitude

Be grateful to the fungus for the message it has delivered.  Without the undesirable symptoms the fungus has produced, you would not know of the imbalance in the body until serious disease sets in.  Be grateful for all dis-ease.  Disease is not the enemy.  It is always sending a lifesaving message.  Receive the message, make corrections and be well.

Health is Natural – Chronic Disease IS NOT.

Here are some “Good” signs the body is balancing and fungus is retreating.

Usually within the first week of cutting out the food supply and lasting 2 – 4 days:

  1. Cold-like symptoms
  2. Headache
  3. Unusual feelings of anger or irritation (unhappy fungus)
  4. Tired

Within 3 weeks on average:

  1. Hair shredding and dandruff stops.
  2. Skin is hydrated and fine lines disappear.
  3. Sleeping through the night (less nighttime bathroom interruptions).
  4. Clear headed (brain fog has lifted).
  5. Weight loss as body releases toxins and fungus. (A balanced body does not store toxins.  An out of balance body does not release them.)
  6. Abundant energy
  7. People start asking – What are you doing?  You look amazing!

It is my truest desire this information is a blessing to those seeking wellness.  I believe these miraculous bodies are always striving for life and when provided with the right tool-kit they thrive!

Here’s to your Peace, Joy, LOVE & Health!

The Age of Eve Redefined…

http://www.theage.com.au/federal-politics/losing-my-religion-for-equality-20090714-dk0v.html?stb=fb

Very Interesting coincidence….I call this “synergy”. This article is confirming a message very specifically that I received during a meditation practice a few months ago – A clear signal the time is right to write it down, share it – give it life.

I had 3 ribs that kept dislocating and causing me a lot of pain.  This debilitating pain was interrupting my life and interfering with my joy.  It finally dawned on me it was bringing an important message.  Pain is a powerful messenger.   With that revelation, the intention for mediation that day was to hear the message.

I believe there is a purpose for everything and I sensed it had something to do with what happened to me long ago (I had no idea how long ago…)

I was attacked about 25 years ago by a couple of men with the intention of rape and I suffered several broken ribs. Thank God I escaped, but I did not go unscathed.  I’ve lived with a great fear of finding myself in that situation again.  A parking garage or a peaceful, quiet street could evoke terror, even if I was with someone.  It was an irrational fear that induced panic attacks. Over the last few years I thought I had released this fear. The rib was a reminder of something I had not released from my subconscious and it was presenting again; giving me another opportunity to let it go.

The message revealed was this – Suppression of women and the sense of lack and unworthiness it has created in us has its root in Genesis. What happened to me is a result of a belief system that considers women “less than” men.  The woman in the Old Testament is portrayed as an “afterthought” of God. According to scripture,  God realized after creating Adam, it was not good for man to be alone and created Eve from the rib of the man. So not only was Eve a second thought, she was not given her own identity.

Eve then coerced Adam to eat from the apple; Eve’s coercion of Adam caused the corruption of man, “the original sin” and it was downhill from there for women. I guess man would be forever living in Nirvana if not for Eve or maybe man would be extinct.  Or, did God have another idea of how creation would procreate before he had the “Ah Ha” moment that changed his mind – I thought that was a woman’s prerogative?  This is how my mind works…he he.

Based on what I was taught and decided was true in my formative years, subconsciously I’ve been conditioned to be submissive to man and to believe I deserve to be punished.  And, why not?  Women are trouble.

As have many women, I’ve gone through most of my adult life making sure life is punishing me; that somehow I did something to deserve being punished.   This embedded belief system has ruled the collective woman consciousness.   I can look back now on life and see how my perceptions of where women stood in the scheme of things influenced how I viewed events.  One event in particular comes to mind.  Another blog.

The written interpretation of Genesis and other similar religious scripture has given man free license to suppress women throughout the history of religion. This suppression at times has been very subtle and extreme as we are seeing now in some religions and fundamentalist aspects of religions.  I can see how this belief that women are “not created equal” has been perpetuated by a blind acceptance of what is deemed truth by those in authority.

Questioning religious teaching is considered blasphemy and still punishable by death in some countries.  The fear of death, hell and damnation has controlled people for ions. Questioning truth has always been a threat to those who seek control.  Until recently, it has proved dangerous for women to question authority or reveal her full power.

The suppression of women, like all events have served a purpose unto Heaven (to the Higher Plan).  Current events and changing times suggest that this purpose has been realized.  People are questioning old beliefs.  We are listening with our hearts for the vibration of Truth that resonates with Unconditional Love.

People are realizing their connection with all of Creation as our ability to be connected through technology increases.  Woman in force are rediscovering their importance; their irreplaceable worth to the world as they see themselves mirrored worldwide.  The female in all of creation is the very womb that births creation.  Women were not always suppressed.  At one time we were respected, revered and honored and still are in some cultures.  Mother lion is roaring now as she is rediscovering her power, worth and proper place.

Nothing ever changes until we change our minds – It’s everyone’s prerogative. All events are uncovering us; revealing our true God-like nature. As individuations of our Creator, we are created in the very image.  As we are revealed we become an ever clearer conduit for God’s Pure Unconditional Love to flow through us and from us.

All religions speak of this Truth.  Ernest Holmes put it this way, “Evolution is the drawing out of God within us”.  The Christian bible says this, “No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us”..1 John 4:12.

The tough events in our lives (the hard knocks) are asking us to open the door to the God within.  The harder the knock the bigger the opening.  I’m sure you’ve heard, “Your worst enemy is your greatest teacher”, or how the hardest hardship ended up being the biggest blessing.

This life event that resulted in the broken ribs was giving me an opportunity to release a belief system that was no longer serving me, my purpose or the collective woman.  It had been pointed out again and again, but I wasn’t getting it, so the knock got harder. Tough as it was, the broken ribs provided the catalyst that broke me free from the “ages” old belief  that as a woman, I was “less than” and therefore, loved less, “worth” less.

It still took 25 more years to swing the door wide open!  I was only able to release this belief from my subconscious by quieting my mind (something I couldn’t do in my younger years) so I could hear the voice of God.  I am so grateful for the event that shook me loose and THAT is the miracle – A change in perception that truly sets me free!  By the way, no more rib pain since the day the message was revealed – hallelujeh!

The collective woman is being released as each woman frees herself from the bondage of this long held perception of inequality.  I am now FREE thank Goodness to a loving God that talks to me personally as I allow.  I pray for the release and freedom of all women.  May the collective woman take her proper place in the world alongside her brother and with her nurturing, loving heart help move the world forward into Nirvana.

 

 

 

 

Enter LIFE Coach…

So recently I hired a life coach.  What issue in my life warranted a “Life Coach” you may ask?  And what does a “Life Coach” do?  I have a predisposition for getting in my own way.  In a world that believes without pain there is no gain, the road to success must be painful, long and expensive.  I know you’ve heard this one; “You’ve got to spend money to make money”.  I grew to also believe without higher education I am undeserving of a successful career or life, even though the lack of that coveted degree has never stopped me from doing anything I put my mind to. These old believes can sabotage our best efforts at success.  I have too much to do and too much to give to risk a repeat life lesson. “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear”. The student is ready – enter Life Coach.

I can see now how many of my life’s “twist and turns”, “stops and starts” have brought me something precious and perfect.  I can see the steps leading me to the next and the next and the next step until here I sit with the awareness of what the steps were for and how blessed and guided I’ve been.  Now that I know the gift I am to share, it’s time to start throwing off more layers of learned believes that are not serving the purpose I have been given.  So I’ve been really busy remembering over the last few years who I really am and unlearning the limited being I am not..

As I peel back the layers of untruths, I know what it feels like to be in the flow of life or as my son Justin would say, “Floating the River”.  Now I can’t wait until all of my life flows from there.  My “reason for being” exist in that river.  My gift and my passion! That’s where GOD is! That is what I’m here for – to bring to the world that one piece of the puzzle I’ve been entrusted with that no one else can bring. The Universe is counting on me to BRING IT!  When I am bringing THAT – Life is easy and unfettered.

We all hold a piece of the puzzle and withholding that from the world, holds the world back.  Each one is part of THE PLAN. The plan that restores Love, Peace & Joy to the world.  Life is hard when it goes against the flow of the Plan.  When life seems hard and I feel I am swimming up-stream, that is my first clue now “I am not in the flow”.  The Flow says, “This is happening, go with it, learn from it, and watch patiently and expectantly for the miracle arising”.

I hired a Life Coach to help me be in this flow in all aspects of my life by assisting me in uncovering and removing the blocks I HAVE created that are plugging up the river.  A good Life Coach has a special gift, a knack for gently bringing us face to face with the unconscious thought patterns that color our perceptions, (give us our excuses) and distract us from our purpose.  Purpose does not punch a time clock. Life purpose is a 24 hour calling I am ready to answer!

Happy Easter 2015

Happy Easter Evening Everyone! As this day of celebration for the miracle of eternal life closes I’ve been contemplating the Living message Jesus brought and feel led to share what came forth.

As God incarnate he was the perfect example of how we are to live our purpose and die to this world. He taught us not be afraid because as his brothers and also children of God, we too are made in God’s image along with all of Creation. Where ever you look, God IS. We are not a body and not of this world. Science says we are 98+ percent energy. That makes us less than 2% solid matter (and most of that water). Energy is constant and never dies, it just transforms like water and ice. Nothing we are going through changes our unlimited, infinite potential that is ours because of Him.

April Fools! "Shift Work Disorder" is Not a Disease..

http://collectivelyconscious.net/articles/here-are-8-invented-diseases-big-pharma-is-banking-on/

This is a great example of how diseases are created to sell drugs.  For instance, Provigil treats a so-called disease labeled “Shift Work Sleep disorder”.   Poor memory and excessive sleepiness is usually a byproduct of a hectic lifestyle with no attention to nutrition or proper rest – not a result of disease.  Ironically, one of the side effects of this drug is “sleeplessness”  Yep!  As you take this drug, your inability to sleep can further deteriorate, resulting in the very symptom “sleepiness” the drug supposedly was created to treat.

There are “life-threatening” side effects associated with Provigil as with many, many prescription drugs.  “Properly” prescribed medications are a leading cause of death (http://ethics.harvard.edu/blog/new-prescription-drugs-major-health-risk-few-offsetting-advantages).  And deaths caused from prescription drug overdoses and abuse out number traffic accidents making them the #1 cause of injury death in 2012 (http://www.cdc.gov/homeandrecreationalsafety/overdose/facts.html).

With all the risk associated with prescription drugs, it’s important to note that many if not most drugs are only treating symptoms, not producing cures at a huge cost to our health!  When one drug is prescribed to treat a symptom, it’s inevitable another will be prescribed to control the symptoms of an undesirable side effect or condition created by the first drug and so on and so on.  Taking a handful of pills as we get older has become normal, everyday life; just an inevitable part of aging in this country.  This is not the norm worldwide. Common sense says, “If prescription drugs were actually helping people be healthy, then those taking the most drugs would naturally be the healthiest?” When is the last time you saw a healthy, vibrant person taking a handful of drugs?

The shift from nutrition and holistic remedies to taking drugs as a way of life has only occurred over the last 100 years as the pharmaceutical industry has become a huge “profit driven” conglomerate.  Health care is #3 on the top 10 list of Best Performing Industries according to MarketWatch.com today April 1, 2015.  “Best performing” means, best return on investment.  With such a huge focus on profit, huge conflicts of interest exist between what is best for the patient and what is best for the pocket-book.  For example; Oncologist in the US are legally making a profit on chemotherapy drugs.  They buy chemo drugs wholesale and charge the patient retail (http://www.cancernetwork.com/articles/four-steps-improve-profitability-your-oncology-practice).  Is the doctor prescribing the best cancer fighting drug or the most profitable one?  And, is “the cure” really the focus of cancer charities and the cancer industry at large? Susan G. Komen reported only 15% of donations in 2011 actually went to research, down from the 17% reported in 2009-2011.  (http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/02/08/us-usa-healthcare-komen-research-idUSTRE8171KW20120208).

Treating symptoms is not the cure for disease.  All symptoms in the body are serving an important purpose.  Without them we would just get sick and die without any forewarning or chance at correcting the condition the symptom is pointing to. Symptoms are nudging us to look deeper and ask ourselves, “What is causing this”?  And then seek out those doctors whose only interest is answering that question. In the very near future, as more and more of us awake to the fact that drugs are not creating health, the “doctor in demand” will be a “true healer” with a primary interest in teaching patients how to stay healthy.  His or her practice will thrive on “referral” business rather than repeat business.  Good Food For Thought..

Alkalizing Lemon & Lemon Mousse Parfait

Alkalizing Lemon- Lime Mousse Parfait                                      Serves 4-6

¼ cup fresh squeezed lime juice (key limes are best)

¼ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice

1 large ripe avocado

¼ cup honey or to taste (or powdered stevia for non-sugar version)

dash sea salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract or flavoring

1 cup homemade coconut whipped cream or Truwhip, divided (see below)*

1 cup fresh blueberries or blackberries

Garnish with mint leaves, lime or lemon wheels or just a little zest

In standard food processor pulse avocados a few times to cream, then blend in lime and lemon juices, honey, vanilla and salt until very smooth and creamy.  Add 1/2 cup whipped cream and pulse a few times just until incorporated.  This can all be done with an electric mixer as well, just cream the avocado first and fold in cream last.  Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving.

When ready to serve, layer berries, mousse, and whipped cream anyway you want into pretty parfait glasses and garnish.

This is an amazing, taste bud tantalizing experience!  The best part – It is actually helps to balance the body’s pH!

Homemade Coconut Whipped Cream                                                      Serves 4 – 6

1 cup coconut cream*

2 teaspoon honey (or 1 teaspoon powdered stevia for a “no sugar” version)

1 teaspoon vanilla

½ teaspoon lemon zest

Large chilled stainless bowl

Remove coconut cream from 1 can of chilled full fat coconut milk. (*Note:  Allow can to sit undisturbed for at least 48 hours to allow the water and cream to separate. I keep a can on hand in the fridge at all times). Open can and scoop the cream off the top into your cold stainless bowl, (water will be at the bottom of the can – save for a smoothie). Add honey, vanilla and zest. With a hand held mixer or stand mixer, whip the cream until light and fluffy.  Keep cold until ready to serve.

Truwhip is a packaged coconut whipped cream (like cool whip).  It can be found in the freezer section of your whole foods store.  It’s really delicious, but does contain a little sugar.  After detox, this is a convenient alternative to homemade.

Toxic Thinking & Cancer

http://thetruthaboutcancer.com/17-cancer-facts-every-person-needs-know/#a_aid=1591129&a_bid=a6c2cf88

Good information.  Check out #9 – 1 and 8 will die of cancer “globally”.  In the US, cancer is “often” NOT listed as the cause of death.  Listed may be; pneumonia, stroke, heart attack, infection, etc.  This practice skews the statistics of cancer survivors, making it seem we are winning the “so-called” war on cancer, when in reality the epidemic is growing.  All of this information is great and preventative, however, I would also add to this that years of worry and toxic thinking may cause more cancer than we know.  Unhappiness and health cannot co-exist.  Unhappiness affects the body at cell level.  Science is now proving this…

Created Equal….

Evangelical Leader Says Bible Calls Us to Show Animals ‘Respect and Humane Treatment’

You mentioned you believe that humans are more important than animals and then later said “We can’t function in this world without our animal co-inhabitants”. I would take that a step further and say, we couldn’t function without Mother Earth and all its co-inhabitants; plant, animal and otherwise. In that sense, all of Creation is equal and co-dependent; we are one. This is a universal message in all religions. When all the world finally grasps its oneness, its brotherhood; honors and respects all life as being sacred and equal, compassion will rule the day. I believe this is the message Jesus was bringing…

Motion is the Potion

Just like an apartment gate equipped with a motion sensor detects forward movement and will close when it detects no motion – The Universe also has a “Built-in” Motion Detector. The minute it detects forward movement the door stays open and when it detects no motion, it closes. The smallest step forward is all it takes to keep the door open to Heaven’s Gate. Keep moving towards your passion, your goal, your purpose. Living it is Heavenly..

Man’s Attempt to Duplicate Nature is a Big Fail!

Wordpress picture - GMO Food

It has come up to me several times over the course of the past year that “something is missing” with GMO produce, and “hydroponic” grown produce.  Some science tells us there is no difference between what Mother Nature creates and what man creates.   What’s the missing link?  Mother Nature’s miraculous influence.  We do not know exactly every detail that is necessary in designing a food source that is perfectly compatible to the human body, but Mother Nature does.   Being able to intuitively test the vibration of different foods and the compatibility to the body, it’s become apparent to me that just because man can mimic nature and nutrients in food, without Mother Nature’s touch the body doesn’t recognize the food as compatible.  It makes logical sense the natural organic human body and any animal or plant for that matter requires a natural organic food source to thrive.  This food source is provided by Mother Nature.   The Kingdom of Earth cannot survive without Her.   The world is not getting healthier as a result of all the technology designed to “bypass” nature.  Our survival on Earth depends on working WITH Mother Nature not against her to restore our natural balance and state of well-being.  Good Food for Thought..
