May 20, 2018 /Blog/...150%, 100% of the Time

Published by: janean strong on 05-20-2018





I am recovering after giving 150% of myself 100% of the time. I honestly do not want to pat myself on the back here. However, I find it extremely interesting to watch oneself be in the mode of complete selfless giving and compassion. Mind you, this is not something I do on a daily basis. But, after arriving back home I found it interesting to reflect on my time supporting my former husband and his family and how effortless it all seemed to jump in and do, what seemed to me, the obvious things that needed to be done. And I had the energy to keep at it.... When I got home I crashed, exhausted. One of Stephen's boys had a cold and I managed to get it... surprising because I don't 'get sick' anymore.... not surprising because my immune functions were obviously pretty exhausted.
Someone said to me "oh that must have been hard"... I thought about it and realized that it wasn't hard... I just stayed in the flow and did what needed to be done, moment to moment. I stretched my bodies current ability to harness its reservoir of energy and I probably could not have maintained that pace much longer. But that is the next step in my returning to 'normal health' .... increasing my stamina and reservoir of available energy!

Here is another pic of our baby chicks as they continue to grow... they are in their 'ugly' cute stage


My latest podcast conversation is on Overcoming Addictions. It is a 2 part series... This one is with 2 professionals involved in helping and supporting those overcoming addiction and the second part will be with 2 people who have overcome addiction... very poignant, I might add.

Overcoming Addictions with Dr. Matthew Flory and Lynette Isaak
Functional Medicine and Core Alignment Recovery Coaching offer two balanced and aligned perspectives on the etiology of addiction and recovery. Dr. Matt Flory offers his perspective from a Functional Medicine point of view and Lynette Isaak as a Life Coach specializing in Recovery. You do not want to miss this important and insightful conversation!

Lynette Isaak is a Core Alignment Specialist, Emotional Wisdom Trainer, Genesis Addictions Counselor, Peer Recovery Mentor and a Certified Mediator. She is the founder of Core Alignment Recovery Coaching.

Dr. Matthew Flory specializes in Functional Medicine and is the founder and architect of the internet based Functional Health Team.

Some of the topics we cover are:

Genetics and Epigenetics
The Brain
Predisposition
Inflammation
Pain as the root cause of addiction
Importance of social networks

For archived Conversations I have chosen:

1.Chronic Disease? Exhausted? Overweight? Want Better Health and Don't Know Where to Start?
with Dr. Thierry Vrain

"To me the clear and present danger is the glyphosate residues in much of our processed food - cereals - meat - dairy, bioaccumulating in all human organs and causing a long list of chronic disease epidemics, for the last 20 years. The GMO debate has been a very effective smokescreen." Dr. Thierry Vrain

Dr. Thierry Vrain, soil biologist and research scientist, weaves the story of how glyphosate has evolved to be the most used herbicide in the world and how it is affecting our health. Avoiding those grains, cereals, seeds and produce sprayed with Roundup/ Glyphosate just before harvest is an excellent place to start!
Part 3 of my series on Glyphosate.

If you haven't listened to the first 2 episodes on Glyphosate, please listen to episode #11 part 1 & 2.

These 3 episodes with 3 experts in their fields…. A farmer, a functional medicine doctor and a soil biologist/ research scientist, give a well rounded picture of the importance of this topic to you and your loved ones.

GMO crops sprayed with Glyphosate as herbicide
corn, soy, beet sugar, cottonseed, canola

Crops sprayed with Glyphosate as a desiccant (most dangerous)
grains - wheat, rye, barley
cereals - oats
seed crops - sunflower seeds
Peanuts
Hemp

Dr. Vrain worked as a scientist for Agriculture Canada for 30 years. Now he is spreading the word
about the dangers of GMO's sprayed with Glyphosate. What goes on behind the scenes and what do we need to know about the safety of our food.

2. Is Your Food Making You Sick? Glyphosate and Gluten Sensitivity
with Dr. Matthew Flory

Self limiting beliefs rob us of joy and create needless suffering

Many have not yet heard of Glyphosate... the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup. Roundup was developed to kill the plant it is sprayed on, like weeds.
GMO crops are specifically engineered to withstand being sprayed with round up..they are 'Roundup ready'...

Obesity, depression, autoimmune disorders, cancers, gluten sensitivity, diabetes, endocrine disruption, autism, chronic illness, neurodegenerative diseases.... the list is so very long...what's happening AND why are we experiencing a huge growth in such a large variety of illnesses ? Especially chronic illnesses

Almost everyone has some knowledge of GMO's but hardly anyone knows that Roundup/glyphosate is now sprayed on the majority of conventionally grown grains in North america.
It's also used as a supposedly safe weedkiller by cities and households across North America.

This podcast episode is dedicated to understanding how glyphosate is affecting the environment, farm animals and humans from the perspectives of a well researched, experienced organic farmer and a well researched, experienced functional medicine doctor.
You'll find fascinating cutting edge information that will help you make informed choices in your nutrition and health care.

Who do you know that can benefit from these podcast conversations? Please share the love far and wide by forwarding this email to friends and family.
This is my gift and service and your help in getting the word out is very much appreciated!
