Food As Medicine

Food is medicine. Your body can do a lot for itself if you let it. You wouldn't put the wrong fuel in your car so why would you do it to your body? You don't run your car with no oil in it so why would you run your body like that?

Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.
― Hippocrates

You need these foods to feed your body's health defense systems. If you can you should try to get your vitamins from actual food. Not processed stuff. Here are some suggestions to get started, you can lookup more items in each category. Copy these down and stick it on the refrigerator.

You can have cancer and not have disease. Our body is naturally designed to cure itself. We have mini "cancers" all the time. Every day mutant DNA causes tiny clusters of cancer cells, microscopic tumors. Our bodily health defense takes care of these before they can "break out" and recruit there own blood supply and multiply and turn into disease.

How do we know this? Autopsies show that by the time you are 60 or 70 years old your body is full of microscopic cancers that may never bother you.

Our body sends out small Health Defense sniper teams that hunt for those clusters and clean them up take them out whenever they spot them. Dr. Li told me all this stuff. I did know that your body can heal itself but I had no idea we battle microscopic cancers all the time and we should be helping the fighters, not setting up roadblocks!

When you are at the hospital with a cancer tumor it means the micro cells escaped out of the cluster and evaded the Health Defense teams and created a big tumor that is no longer microscopic. And now you are in the healthcare system good luck with that. We are here today to practice modern Health Defense techniques so you can avoid entering into the healthcare system. Avoid it like the plaque. We've been told that not everyone can have HealthCare because it's socialism and it will bankrupt the treasury, yet in America we spend 4 times more than any other country for a system not as good as there's. That math doesn't add up. Obviously we are being lied to, don't even try to figure it out just try to defend your health and keep it in good shape, that way you won't even need to enter into that system. 

I always take good care of motorcycle and snowmobile engines, waverunner motors, I feel bad when they are not treated right. It's like you're hurting them, giving them pain. So many people don't treat their car right at all. The auto industry loves it. They're all too happy you get another bad car loan. The dirty little secret is cars will last double what most people think (they have no idea). If you would stop speeding up to red lights you might be onto it.

Your body is the same. It will last a lot longer than you think if you "stop speeding up to red lights." Stop jamming on the brakes every time you come up to the intersection. You should be looking up out ahead at the lights and let off the gas. The light is only one shade of red. You need to defend your health.

Amen brother.
 

Foods For Thought

Food nourishes cognitive function.

The Good People of Procrastination Nation

Who are we? Is Me controlling me? Every ten years someone gets Tonsillitis. I swear Tonsillitis has to be one of the most painful conditions because it's not the end of the world, it just feels that way. Every time you swallow it hurts. I always say please God please relieve me of this pain and I will behave for the rest of my life please. It goes away. I renege. Everything goes back to normal. Repeat.

Then again I used to live in the town of Denial. It was a nice place, low crime, good weather, everyone was friendly. I never knew I lived there until I moved away.

I always say whenever life gets you down Mrs. Brown pull in the clutch and hit the brakes.

Fritz the Hat used to grumble, "Why does everything have to be so luscious"?

I always used to say, "Why does everything have to be such a ripoff"?

In Search of the Cognitive Key

Breath deep. Science tells us we have 6 or 8 subconscious layers that are completely unknown unseen by us. We live in a thin little layer on the top one. But we don't know that. We go through life always "searching" for some magic thinga mahjig pitter patter. Is it all right inside in there in front of me? How convenient.

In Search of the Cognitive Chord

And the lost chord.
Breath deep
The gathering gloom
Watch lights fade
From every room
Bedsitter people
Look back and lament
Another day's useless
Energy spent

Impassioned lovers
Wrestle as one
Lonely man cries for love
And has none
New mother picks up
And suckles her son
Senior citizens
Wish they were young

Cold hearted orb
That rules the night
Removes the colours
From our sight
Red is gray and
Yellow white
But we decide
Which is right
And
Which is an Illusion

Here is five quotes from Sun Tzu. It claims we want to know these. Ok then.

Know Thy Five Key Health Defense Systems

Life is made up of Behavior, Genetics and Fate. Number two and three are very hard to predict, not that you shouldn't keep trying. The first one "Behavior" is fairly controllable compared to the other two. You could even bet on it. You can even steer it down a path. That doesn't mean you should push your luck. Unbeknownst to us a large part of behavior is manipulated by an unseen mystery psychology controlled by physiology. I didn't make this up it's Cognitive Science.

Somewhere along the way philosophy had a baby. Personal Psychology. When it was born it was considered to be the same for everyone like a One Size Fits All. Every year we find out more about how untrue this is. We are not all the same. Humans re-write history to cover this stuff up. Reality is what whoever in charge says it is. The coming Zero Tolerance networks are going to force this contrast to the surface. Here at Total Health Defense we are not going to wait, we're going to get ahead of this now.

As we speak a massive parallel digital copy of our whole world is being built around us in the form of databases and archives. Everything is being digitized. When currency was disconnected from the Gold Standard look what happen. It was supposed to be a temporary steam valve to release pressure and closed again. Every Administration has a new excuse to keep the spigot open. In 2013 the debt was $15 trillion only 8 years later it's $27 trillion. It's become a Ponzi scheme. Once enough of society's information becomes digital it will be possible to re-write reality.   

If we start walking around in the Matrix will we be told it's happening? Certainly the President will let us know? The Police will let us know? Surely the military and the medical people will tell us? Can we count on the school system when they themselves won't even know? What are the systems?

Hidden systems? You can learn about the hidden systems that shape your decisions and your behavior. One source is listen to the show "Hidden Brain" hosted by Shankar Vedantam. He uses science and storytelling to reveal the unconscious patterns that drive human behavior, shape our choices and direct our relationships. But he doesn't see it as health defense like we are doing here using Jeet Kune Do. Another good source is Alan Watts, Bruce was a big fan of philosopher Alan Watts. I also recommend Dr. Eric Topol of Scripps. Check out Jaron Lanier. You will notice how these folks all overlap.  

We will use Jeet Kune Do philosophy to bridge the developmental psychology, social psychology, and personality psychology, and examine the self-conceptions (or mindsets) to structure the self and guide behavior. We will uncover the origins of these mindsets, their role in motivation and self-regulation, and their impact on achievement and interpersonal processes. Words have a powerful impact. All the richness of your mind is severely cutoff and narrowed down by the limitation of words and vocabulary. That's one of the main purposes of this website is to give you those words. Because you already know all this stuff you just didn't know the "words" to describe it. I didn't either. And here we are. Where's George Carlin when you need him?  

Conscious "decisions" are just the last link in a long hidden chain of decisions made with or without our knowledge. But we don't know that, unless we know that. It's like flying blind. You can see this for yourself when you pay attention to what advertising does. Those junk links on the bottom of the web pages, they seem to follow the same script as if we're suckers. 

The more blessed your genetics are the more you can get away with the wrong behavior but then why take chances? Can your fate or your faith protect you when you do bad behavior? Sometimes it seems that way but let's not bet on it. Is not death but the last link in a long hidden chain of decisions made with and without our knowledge? In Chapter 9 we'll look at the "History of Death." When you look at life starting from that end many things fall by the wayside. If you become dead what really mattered?   

Dr. Li the Harvard trained medical researcher, doctor, and president of the Angiogenesis system Foundation tells us about five key health defense systems. He says it is food that maintains these systems. Dr. Li predicts that doctors of the future, the ones in medical school right now, will know all about Food as medicine. Doctors of today have not been taught nutrition and they are not very familiar with the role of food-as-medicine. They'll say they are. Some are.

Before 1800 medicine was about demons and spirits and homemade natural remedies. Many people today still think health is about demons and spirits, it was just in the news. After 1800 medical science starting taking over. By 1950 things had gone too far. Think Better Living Through Chemistry. This started out with good intentions. Hey it was 1950 what can you expect.



Today the natural algorithms are being uncovered and re-discovered as they had been displaced by artificial chemical concoctions.

The Peoples Pharmacy Joe and Terry Graedon said the Food and Drug Administration today has no problem with all these commercials telling us to get our doctor to go buy some new drug that even he didn't know about. But if somebody or some organization or some company wants to talk about the health benefits of "Food" such as Walnuts, its oh no no no. You can not talk about the benefits of a "unapproved" new "drug" such as Walnuts. They've gone after Pomegranate Juice, Cherry Juice, what's up with that? It's possible they don't want us to look at the Food Chain's role in the healthcare crisis? And here this whole time I thought it was beer and marijuana they were so worried about. They been saying that for 50 years and now marijuana is legal. What else has been wrong for 50 years? Everything. But times are changing for the better and we are learning and updating our knowledge.

Okay here we go with the five health defense systems:

Angiogenesis System

Tiny little blood vessels are growing all the time throughout our life in both health and disease. The Angiogenesis system forms and controls the growth of these blood vessels from the existing vasculature. These tiny capillaries are close by all metabolically active tissue and are needed for the exchange of nutrients and metabolites.

You wouldn't put the wrong stuff in your radiator cooling system in your car and overheat the motor. So why would you put the wrong stuff in your Angiogenesis circulatory system, don't you know anything at all?

Changes in your metabolic activity lead to proportional changes in your Angiogenesis system of capillaries. Oxygen and blood flow dynamics are critical for structural adaptations of vessel walls and the very survival of vascular networks. 6 out of the 10 top causes of death from the CDC list are different ways to say the same word VASCULAR. Look that up, we'll wait for you right here.

Regenerative System

Oh sure we can't regenerate a new limb like a Starfish but we regenerate massively all the time. If you were a Dwarf yellow-headed gecko you could regenerate your tail the cat bit off.



Regeneration can either be complete where the tissue restoration is the same as the lost tissue good as new, or incomplete where after the damaged tissue comes fibrosis (ugly scars). You got a scar who cares at least you're okay. Next up is..

Microbiome

You are not alone. There are about 37 trillion bacteria (microbiota) in and on your body. The Microbiome is our ecosystem of human cells and microbiota that include bacteria, archaea, fungi, protists and viruses. These microbiota "talk" to each other, they talk to our cells, especially our immune cells, they talk to our brain and even influence our emotions. The food we eat feeds human cells but also feeds these microbiota so it would seem to me, don't make them grumpy! There's 37 trillion of them. Eat right.

DNA

We think of DNA as little containers holding blueprints of our Selves. The amazing thing about DNA is they can fix themselves, do self repairs. When there is a mutation or damage the DNA can sew itself back up. Like Fix-A-Flat.

Immune System

We save the best for last. The immune system is the ultimate host defense system comprising many structures and processes that protects against disease. Immune Therapy can reverse disease. Like magic. Alchemy. To function properly, an immune system must detect a wide variety of pathogens and distinguish them from the healthy tissue.

These five systems are main shield of defense. Each one of these can be powerfully influenced by the food we eat. Makes you want to go get an Oil Change right now.

Jeet Kune Do

Jeet Kune Do
This is why you have the daily spin of illusion delusion diversion every 15 minutes. A little cycle all day long every day. To get a handle on this spin of illusion delusion diversion cycle we have here Geospatial Cogno Crypto Currency. I showed one of these to Jack Dangermond CEO of ESRI. It blew him off his feet, he says, "Who is this guy?" I said, "Jack keep it someday it's value will go way up." This was at the annual ESRI Convention (2019) in Washington DC. It's only a matter of time before the mind gets mapped with geospatial software tools. 

The five key defense systems are all talking to each other and to our brain. It's a giant loop of bio chatter. Most of it is too minute to care about. The larger "messages" are what we can tune into. We tend to listen to only what we want to hear. How much you hear and the way you interpret it is the source of the misalignment between what you think you want and what you really need and it determines your relationship to reality. You can get better at driving the car or you can get really good at tinkering with the engine either way works just as well. 

We tend to not understand this loop, this cognitive production cycle so to speak is working full-time with or without you. We underestimate the control we can exert in the cognitive loop production cycle. If nobody ever told you this stuff, you will not just magically know. You may figure it out. You may have your own way to make things workout. I didn't come up with this, it's cognitive science. We should teach it. We should teach how to "intercept" the process like using some Jeet Kune Do.

Our body is always talking to us but we ain't listening!
