Here's part 56:  regarding familial hypercholesterolemia, which is NOT due to high LDL or any of the other nonsense reasons you'll get from a heart doctor here in america or any other doctor.

Quote from article:  "We can provide fifty days free access to this paper, before the pay wall comes down. To make it free access forever would cost us thousands, and since none of us gets paid a bean for any of this work, this would be far too costly for a bunch of (in this area) independent researchers.You need to be a major university, or a pharmaceutical company to make your papers free access. Although such are the costs that even these organisations are baulking. As Richard Smith– who edited the BMJ for many years –  said ‘The function of medical journals used to be to make research freely available to all. It is now to keep it hidden.’ Or words to that effect."

I love to make my own gifts, especially if they're useful gifts.  There are 3 or 4 ideas here, and the thyme-honey sounds interesting, since it seems everyone around this area gets at least one (usually many, however) winter colds and sore throats.  Thyme, to me, is rather like a mild oregano type scent and taste, which would be great with honey and I can see how it would feel "menthol-ey" on the throat.  It takes a while to make this, so if you're going to do this for a gift, you might think about getting started at least by mid-October or so.  I think it sounds like it would be great in a cup of rooibos tea. Breathe in the mentholated steam coming off the teacup, as well.  Hmmmm . . .

With autumn now oh-fishelly here, I'm looking forward to using my homemade pumpkin spice (much like her recipe in this blog), my Chinese 5 Spice and my French Four, all of which use many of the same spices as pumpkin spice - - and all of which taste great mixed into a cup of stoutly made (using 2 or more tea bags) Earl Grey Tea, which is one of my favorites, along with Princess Grey.

Meh, the stuff from Mercola is ok, but it's just as easy to do my baking soda thing, or even my bleach wash.  They work just as effectively, if not moreso. 

1/4 tsp plain clorox bleach (make sure not to use any of their scented junk) to a gallon of water in your kitchen sink.  This works very well for leafy veggies such as lettuces, arugala, kale, boy choy, etc., but works equally well for hard fruits and veggies.  Soak leafy things for 5-10 min and then for another 10 min in plain filtered water.  Harder skinned fruits and veggies can be in the bleach soak for 15 min and then in fresh water rinse for 10 mins.  Shake out the leafy veggies well and let drain in the sink or roll up in paper towels and then shake into the sink and let air dry.

Some of these could be made in larger batches for an entire body scrub, but that could get expensive in a hurry.  I'm looking forward to the strawberry facial scrub/wash and also the one with the black lava sea salt (towards the bottom).  For an entire body scrub, I've been using coconut oil mixed together with brown sugar for about 5 years now and I love it.  I have my DH rub it on my back occasionally, too.  Be sure to stand on a towel inside your tub/shower when you do this because the tub quickly becomes very slippery.

Some of us have known this for decades.  But the media today has too much power in deciding what people eat and convincing them of all the wrong things.  Ditto for all the crap they preach regarding heart disease coming from "cholesterol, LDL" and all the rest of the hooey they bark.  It's just not true. 

Here's some info from Cornucopia.org and also a dairy scorecard to help you choose the best-rated products available.

https://www.cornucopia.org/2018/09/new-research-shows-cheese-and-yogurt-are-good-for-you/

The only thing on the scorecard that's available in my area, with a 5 star rating, is the Saint Benoit's plain yogurt, which I buy frequently at my food co-op.  Otherwise we have to settle for the four cow rating of Kalona products. I used to be able to get fresh, raw cow's milk every Friday but the lady who was the producer went out of business recently because of all the hasseling she was getting from our USDA sponsored State dairy and egg board idiots,.  So, now I can still get raw goat milk, but no more cow milk.  GET RID OF THE USDA and all their asinine "regulations".  We managed just fine without them and we can do it again.

Not to mention a lot of that money went to the Clinton's just like it did when it was earmarked for Haiti.  This'll make you see red, but you hafta read the whole thing. There is no link to this, but it's from the Judicial Watch Corruption Chronicles.

*******************************************
U.S. Spends $90 Million to Help a few Dozen Afghan Women Get Jobs
The U.S. government has blown almost $90 million on a doomed project to help Afghan women enter the workforce with a big chunk of the money going to a Clinton-aligned “development” company that reaped big bucks from Uncle Sam while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.

The cash flows through the famously corrupt U.S. Agency of International Development (USAID), which is charged with providing global economic, development and humanitarian assistance. In this case USAID allocated $216 million to supposedly help tens of thousands of Afghan women get jobs and gain promotions over five years. Known as “Promoting Gender Equity in National Priority Programs,” the endeavor was launched in 2014 and tens of millions of dollars later it’s proven to be a major failure.

Someone must be pocketing the cash because the costly program has helped between zero and 60 women. This isn’t a joke, though it sounds like a bad one. All the dirty details are laid out in a scathing federal audit released this month by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR).

Investigators found that around 55 women got “new or better” jobs in three years and they can’t even fully credit the U.S.-backed program for the women’s prosperities. SIGAR writes that it found “multiple problems” in the program, including security, staffing and economic conditions in Afghanistan.

“In addition, SIGAR found that USAID/Afghanistan’s records on the contractors’ required deliverables were incomplete

Good info here, but they left out a few things that I've learned in the past two years.  If you have a bag of salt crystals (not the finely ground stuff) hold the top of the bag shut, shake it up and then quickly breathe in the "dust" through your mouth and nose.  You can actually feel it going into your lungs and it feels great.  I do this a few times a day because I think it's kinda sorta purifying or something.  It just feels good.

Even PubMed is in on the propagandistic methods of demeaning the use of herbal (botanical) medicine. 

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1071505/

Well, they can talk till they're blue in the face, but I will always believe in herbal medicine before money-based medicine and insurance-based medicine, which is what we have today.  If it weren't for the women of the past basically passing on the traditional medicines in herbs, many of the most severe illnesses would have no hope of being treated, because it's certainly clear that phrMA drugs cannot help people. 

If you watched the series (9 part docuseries) called Remedy: Ancient Medicine for Modern Illness (the entire series is being replayed until the evening of Tuesday Sept. 18th, 2018 and is available online during that time, or I can supply people with links) you'd know just why botanical medicines and nutrition ended up taking a back seat to the highly financed allopathic medicines which are now killing people by the hundreds of thousands every year.  Why doesn't anyone want to recognize that herbal medicines have few if any side effects and are pretty much banned from use today, while allopathic medicine kills in large numbers and has a laundry list of very serious adverse effects and yet between the doctors and hospitals and insurance companies (who are the prime mover here) only bigphrma is allowed to be used?  There is something hugely wrong with this picture folks. 

Here is episode one explaining a bunch of information about this subject.  It starts out kinda funky, but just stay with it because by the end of the video you'll be much more aware.

Tonight I was channel surfing (there's never anything on worth watching these days) and I happened upon the public television station.  They were showing a documentary called Spying on the Royals.  I'm not sure how many episodes of this thing there are really supposed to be because I kept finding conflicting reports with an online search.  Nevertheless, tonight was episode 2 and it was fascinating, although I have no idea how much of it is true - documentaries sometimes tend to interweave lies and truth - - especially when sponsored by a public station. 

Anyway, in the belly of the documentary was a reference to an elitist club here in America, formed in the early 20th century, called "The Room" and later in it's existence some of the information the members would find out would make its way to the ear of FDR who used this group of hoity toity people to spy for him.  It took quite a bit of searching on the 'net (and just the right combination of words, I might add) to find out anything at all about this group, but what I finally found is quite interesting in lieu of what's happening in the USA today regarding secrets and spies and surveillance, etc.  Actually the story of the Royals (mostly  centering on Edward abdicating and marrying Wallis Simpson) was quite interesting too, but as I say, it's really hard to know what to believe and what might actually just be fictional accounts.

Here's what I found regarding "The Room":  http://howardblum.com/room-fdr-vincent-astors-wwii-espionage/

And here's just a sample of what little is to be found (that's accurate) about the story of the Spying on the Royals:

I've been doing some studying up recently on the ingestion of sea salt.  PLEASE REMEMBER there is a huge difference between sea salt and regular grocery store salt.  Sea salt contains a lot of minerals living beings need daily.  Grocery store salt is just sodium with a bunch of dangerous fillers added to it, and out bodies don't need fillers. 

What I wanted to report about, however, was that in one of the articles I read it said to experiment with your pet (we have a dog so this will be about dogs in particular).  So I used two pet bowls and filled one with plain (filtered) water and the other with filtered water with just a pinch of himalayan sea salt added.  I set the bowls side by side for the first day of the experiment - he went straight for the bowl with the salt, just like a cow or a horse would do with the salt and mineral licks placed throughout a barnyard for their enjoyment.

Then I took the bowl with the plain water and set it out on the deck and left the salt water bowl inside the house.  In these nice temps we've still been having lately, our dog spends a great share of the day outdoors in the back yard.  He barely touched the water in the bowl out there, but if I let him inside he went straight for the water bowl and lapped it up, sometimes walking away from the bowl and going back again.  Then he would rest a few minutes and start eating his food.  We are still using the raw diet for him as long as the weather is nice and he can eat outdoors.  In the winter we have to resort to bagged food because everything we toss outside (except marrow bones) freeze solid and he can't eat it.  He's 13 1/2 now and looks like a puppy.  He still runs up and down the back deck steps like a kid!  He has trouble inside the house with our wooden (oak) steps going from upper to lower levels of the house because they are slippery, but he manages to get up eventually!  His claws are quite long and that doesn't help matters either.

Just like America needs Trump right now.  The comparison between Bolsanaro and Trump really isn't all that close in reality, but it sounds like they're both fighters who are sick and tired of politics the way it WAS and with politically correct EVERYTHING these days. 

They speak their minds, as do all the rest of us from time to time, and that doesn't make them bad - it makes them just like the rest of us.  I'm not talking about the insane democrats on the far left outer banks, either.  Those idiots make these two guys sound as sane as can be.

I have a small Two-Person sized crock pot and I used that to roast my strawberries and it worked out ok, but in the oven (or in a turkey roaster) is best.  I added 1 TBSP real sugar and 1 TBSP erythritol and it worked out great even for our diabetic friend who had his with non-sugar ice cream.  I also added cinnamon and I probably used more than most people would, but cinnamon is good for diabetic people and I knew our friend was coming for supper so I wanted him to be able to enjoy dessert also.  He did!

I also have Dr. David Brownstein's book called Salt Your Way To Health which I've been reading lately.  My serum sodium level was low on last bloodwork done a month ago (which sometimes means nothing) but I really don't think I'm getting enough minerals lately so I'm going to make the Sole water (salt saturated water) and start using it once again.  Haven't used it for 10 years or more and it actually helped a lot of issues I was having at that time.  But it's one of those "easy to do things" that a person forgets about.  Shame on me! 

There are some good online sites with information about this, as well.  I just picked Shirley's because I'm familiar with that site.
