Is it time to take up smoking?

While I put the news together a report came in showing how smokers were the least hospitalized the past 2 years due to novid, than any group of people, go figure? Especially as this is supposed to be a major respiratory disease, yet smokers are more immune. Really?
Now I did not research this subject too deeply as I am not about to start smoking, however it is being discussed how nicotine may be as good as ivermectin to combat the current pandemic of, cold and flu, like symptoms.
Are the cigarette companies losing market share to the pharmaceutical companies so need a boost in sales, as why would there be any suggestion that smoking helps improve immune function? 
Lung cancer accounts for about 28 percent of all cancer deaths and is the # 2 cause of cancer! I assume most lung cancer is due to smoking.
When I read this type of ‘report’ I question all the ‘hype’ & ‘confusion’, just to further reduce the 99.8% chance of recovery from the cold and flu like symptoms, which have plagued society for over 2 years.

Quack quack!

Celiac Disease
From the Natural Path Newsletter   
by Linda Woolven M.H., R.Ac & Ted Snider
Celiac disease is an autoimmune response to gluten, the protein found in certain grains, that destroys the intestinal villi needed for absorbing food. To get rid of the symptoms, you have to get rid of the gluten. That means avoidance of all forms of wheat, barley and rye. Corn, millet, rice and buckwheat don’t cause the disease but may aggravate symptoms in sensitive people.

Many sources continue to ban oats. But recent, better designed studies show that most celiacs actually do tolerate moderate amounts of oats (BMJ 1996;313:1300-10; Gut 2002;50:332-5; Gut 2004;53:649-54; Scand J Gastroenterol 2008;43:1094-101): 95% of celiacs have been shown to tolerate 50g of oats a day for up to a year (NEJM 1995;333:1033-7).

Being able to eat oats is important, not only because it makes the diet easier, but because it improves your nutrition. Celiacs who eat moderate amounts of oats improve their intake of fiber, B1, magnesium, iron and zinc (Eur J Clin Nutr 2010;64(1):62-7). But be careful because it is common for oat products found in the mass market to be contaminated with gluten (NEJM2004;351:2021-2). When people who thought they were on a gluten free diet were put on a truly gluten free diet, 77% of them improved (Scand J Gastroenterol 1999;34:784-9).

If you eliminate gluten from your diet, symptoms usually start going away fast. As many as 30% may start responding in as little as 3 days. Another 50% will respond within a month, and another 10% within one more month. 10% will, unfortunately, take much longer, and 2-5% will not improve even though they eliminate gluten (Nat Rev Gastroenterol Hepatol 2010;7(4):204-13). If you don’t get better, and you really do have celiac disease, and you really aren’t eating unknown gluten, then get tested for zinc deficiency. Zinc deficiencies are common among celiacs, and celiacs do not respond to a gluten free diet if there is a zinc deficiency.

Dairy should be eliminated until the intestines return to normal. Giving milk early in childhood is a major causative factor in celiac disease (Acta Paediatrica Scand 1965;54:101-15; J Ped Gastroenterol Nutr 1983;2:S304-9; Ann Rev Nutr 1985;5:241-66). Breast milk, on the other hand, protects against celiac disease (Pediatr Gastroenterol Nutr 1983;2:428-33; Am J Clin Nutr2002;75:914-21; Croat Med J 2010 15;51(5):417-22; Evid Based Med 2013;18(3):98-103). Breast feeding and holding off on the introduction of milk and grains is a good strategy for reducing the risk of celiac.

Because celiac disease leads to malabsorption, celiacs often develop deficiencies. The most common ones are vitamins E, D, K, B12, folic acid, iron, selenium, zinc, calcium, magnesium, carnitine and essential fatty acids. So, a high potency multivitamin/mineral is a very good idea. Additional supplementation of particular deficiencies may also be necessary. Supplementing folic acid, B12 and B6 has been shown to benefit celiacs (Aliment Pharmacol Ther 2009;29(8):811-6).

Because women with celiac are at much higher risk of having babies with neural tube defects (Clin Genet 1996;49:107-8), the gluten free diet must be supplemented with folic acid during child bearing years.

Because of these deficiencies, celiacs are at increased risk of osteoporosis (Bone 1999;24(3):249-55; Gastroenterol2003;125:429-36; Arch Intern Med 2005;165:393-9). Amazingly, a gluten free diet can increase bone mineral density to about normal in only a year (Am J Clin Nutr 1998;67:477-81; J Pediatr Gastroenterol Nutr 2003;37:434-6; Gut 1996;39:180-4) and staying on the diet will keep it normal (Am J Gastroenterol 1999;94:398-403).

Glutamine and probiotics help rebuild the damaged intestines. By helping repair damaged intestines, probiotics improve the disease (Ann NY Acad Sci 2009;1165:183-9).

Fatigue and low L-carnitine are common in celiacs. 2g a day of carnitine for 180 days significantly reduced fatigue in a placebo-controlled study (Dig Liver Dis 2007;39(10):922-8).

The protein digesting enzyme papain seems to be able to digest gluten and render it harmless to celiacs (Gut 1964;5:295-303). So, it may be a good insurance policy to take 500-1,000mg with meals in case of hidden gluten. That dose may allow some celiacs to tolerate gluten (Lancet 1976;2:1022).

Why your Self Image is key to improved performance
I just about quit. I was almost two hours and 55 km into a 152 km gran fondo cycling event in Penticton a few weeks ago when I felt like quitting. I had been riding hard and it was starting to get hot. As I struggled to climb a hill it seemed like 50 riders passed me and I asked myself what I was doing. I hadn’t prepared for the ride and had only registered the day before. Suddenly a James Brown song, “I Feel Good” popped into my head and I started singing it to myself as I rode along for a few kilometers.

Topic: Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid Supplements Shown to Reverse Fatty Liver Problems (NASH)
Twenty-five percent of the world’s population is currently afflicted with fatty liver disease that is not caused by alcohol consumption. Excess alcohol consumption can certainly cause fatty liver problems and life-threatening cirrhosis, but people who don’t drink alcohol or drink very little alcohol can still develop a serious fatty liver problem known as Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), which has become a global problem in recent years.

Team work makes the dream work!

All my childhood, I was always on the winning team. Never was the best athlete, but always found myself a team player on the winning team. As a team, anything is possible for us. It is not how good you are at the chosen endeavor; instead, today it is about how good of a team player you are! In order for us to WIN the ideological and information war that has—in the last 2.5 years—increased dramatically in intensity, we’re going to have to work together. Rudolf Steiner said that what defeats the tyrants of the 21st century is “loving assistance.” We’re going to have to lovingly assist each other out of the mess of corruption that has become our “governments” and giant corporations. That means working together from the heart as a team.

Teamwork makes the dream-work. 

Teamwork doesn’t seem work. 

Team spirit is generated by lofty goals and aspirations. I can tell you who is going to Win the Information War…the Team that has set itself to achieve attainable and inspirational goals; the Team that has enunciated a Vision of the Future that God would be proud of. Stand on the shoulders of Giants and see further.

Bone Health and Osteoporosis: An Orthomolecular Perspective
Editorial by Richard Z. Cheng, MD, PhD and Thomas E. Levy, MD, JD
OMNS (Aug. 16, 2022) Osteoporosis, like most other disease, is caused by many factors including deficiencies of essential nutrients such as vitamin D. But the central dogma has been promoting just prescription drugs and calcium supplements. This strategy sounds simple and straightforward, but unfortunately not only does it not work, it may even be harmful. There is a rich body of data in the literature showing that lifestyle, nutrition, toxins, and hormonal balance have an impact on bone health and osteoporosis. A brief summary of this research is presented here. For optimal results, the practical management of osteoporosis and other chronic diseases should incorporate this knowledge
