With time, I've realized that the environment has as much (if not more) of an impact as diet, after a little research here are a few things I found you can do to improve your home right away:
1- Get plants in your home:
This is one of God's greatest gifts! Better than any air purifier, plants are the best at recycling polluted air & mold and turning it into oxygenated clean air!
Top 10 air purifying plants:
English Ivy plant found to fight mold:
(read the risks when ingested)
2- Making your own chemical free cleaning products:
It's so easy and it will save you money and future health problems.
DIY air freshener ( all commercials ones including febreeze are toxic)
3- Making your own personal care products:
For you and your family
4- Change all plastic to glassware
More toxic items in your kitchen:
(please don't get scared, this is just to equip you with some knowledge, you can try to replace the toxic cookware gradually 🙂 )
Hope this helps, I will update you on any health related discoveries I find. God bless you all!
As sister Gabrielle mentioned there are concerns with intermittent fasting in relation to how it affects female hormone levels. I also warn our sisters to do their research on this, if they are considering it. The same goes for our brothers. It appears that it's more suitable for men to do, but females especially may experience issues.
As much as I enjoyed fasting, I'm going to have to forgo continuing with OMAD. It seems that there is some scientific information out there that suggests that fasting is more detrimental to females, than males, particularly when it comes to fertility.
Similarly, I used to follow a strict vegan diet and one of the first things that made me reconsider it's sustainability was learning about how a lack of animal protein could affect hormone levels in men and women.
My apologies, as I would never want to lead anyone astray. I pray that we all stay healthy and full of energy, brethren! 🌼
Amen sister 🙂
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: -Ecclesiastes 3:1
I do believe that there are times the Lord will lead us to fast, then there are times where we shouldn’t do such a thing. Like sister Christine mentioned there are factors to consider. Ones state of health for one, if you are already nutrient deficient it will only cause more damage then good unfortunately. It’s an immense stress on the body when this happens. Moderation is key I think. We shouldn’t under eat too much and we shouldn’t over eat either 🙂
I too tried a vegan/vegetarian diet a few years ago! I couldn’t do it I felt too weak and it just was messing with my mind! 😳
Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his
nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
RDA = Really Dumb Advice
Air - The fresh, God made kind
Water - Clean and pure, with minerals
Minerals - God made us from 'dust' and so shall we return
Fats - Demonized, they are critical for good health
Micro-Nutrients - A, B's, C, D3, K
Sun shine - Creates D, man was meant to be outside
Sleep - Rest is very important for recovery
[Three's] The average human can last:
3 minutes without oxygen.
3 hours without shelter in severe weather.
3 days without water
3 weeks without food
3 months without hope (This is why faith is very important)
[Illness is caused by the following]
Lacking nutrients - Causes most modern illness
Infection (Viral, bacterial, parasitic) - With proper health, they wont attack and if so will not harm.
Toxic agent - Chemical, mineral, radio (radiation, radio waves, light)
Physical trauma - Broken bone, torn muscle, etc...
Genetic - Mostly caused by issues with parents health, causing incorrect development
Good health is not complex, it is made to be that way by folks who profit from your misery. One should eat real food, not to much and mostly veggies. Nothing wrong with meat, just don't over do it. What is real food? If you could make it 150 years ago, it is real.
When shopping at a supermarket, the real food is on the outside perimeter (veggies, meat, dairy). Death in down the aisles. Real food comes from plants and animals, it is not made by an animal in a plant!
One should learn to garden, and do as much as you can for yourself. Study Saul, Pauling, Hufman, and Price's work and you will be able to resolve most of your own issues.
Just my two cents worth.

who's been a big league
professional nutritionist for
37 years and he's here to tell
us about the 10 Foods Not Eat,
many of which are part of the
Standard American Diet (SAD).
The synergistic chemistry in
some of these "foods" are
completely toxic and one
should avoid these if one is
interested in avoiding
degenerative diseases and
bacon, sausage, ham, pepperoni
and hotdogs): These products
are cured with nitrates and
nitrites, which when digested
convert to nitrosamines, which
are among the most carcinogenic
compounds known, especially
for the intestinal tract and the
with pork and Dr. Broer cites
studies which indicate that pork
is particularly noxious. The World
Health Organization came out
recently with the finding that one
of the primary causes of cancer
globally was the consumption of
pork (!) Dr. Broer urges everybody
to stay away from 'The Other
substance breaks down into
phenylanlanine, aspartic acid and
methanol (i.e. pain thinner).
There are aspartic acid receptors
in the brain which make this
substance extremely addictive.
Dr. Broer says aspartame disrupts
memory function, causes brain
cancers, seizures, headaches,
optic nerve degradation and
are consumed together, such
as a ham sandwich with diet
soda, this forms the compound
diketopiperazine (DKP), which
degrades into a nitrous urea,
the most effective agent known
to man for inducing malignant
tumors in laboratory animals.
Phenylanlanine by itself in high
concentrations also causes
permanent nerve- and brain
damage. Dr. Broer says that
aspartame is basically a mind
control drug that induces trance
states that make people
hydrogenated oils cause a host
of illnesses, from heart disease
to metabolic syndrome to
diabetes to arthritis to infertility.

absorbing much of the
environmental pollution from
their local waters, be it BP Corexit

mercury, arsenic and other heavy
metals, found all over the world.
are loaded with high-fructose
corn syrup, which promotes a
fatty liver and makes one
insatiably hungry, by affecting
the brain mechanism that tells
you you're full.
phytoestrogens and like all
xenoestrogens, cause a myriad
of problems, which I've discussed
in length, in the work of Dr. Nick
Delgado, from the chemical
castration of male embryos in
utero, reduced sperm count, to
gynecomastia or "man boobs" to
breast- and other cancers.
recommends that one drink
distilled or reverse-osmosis water.
Fluoride was first used in Nazi
concentration camps, to make
prisoners servile and infertile.
Fluoride is also linked to arthritis
and bone loss.
Dr. Broer wishes that raw organic
milk were widely available but he
doesn't recommend pasteurized
milk products. The hormones in
mass-produced milk products,
such as Recombinant Bovine
Somatotropin (rbST) and the
xenoestrogens make these
products endocrine disruptors,
which are also artery-clogging
and ultimately carcinogenic.
amounts of coffee can lead to high
blood pressure, heart disease and
breast cancer, due to the
methylxanthine and adrenal
fatigue. Caffeine is fine in small
doses, like in green tea and an
occasional cup of coffee is OK but
mass quantities everyday is not.
Consumption of alcohol increases
the risk of pancreatic cancer, liver
cancer, cirhossis of the liver,
alcoholism, osteoporosis and breast
cancer. Dr. Broer jokes, "Nobody
ever says, 'My life was a wreck.
Then I started drinking and
everything got better!'"
He says that all of the hype about
the benefits of alcohol consumption
are based on studies funded by the
alcoholic beverage industries.
"Alcohol is a neurotoxin. Let's be
real! Your body has to stop
everything that it's doing when you
drink this in order to metabolize this
mess to get it out of your system."
This is especially true of women. As
with coffee, the occasional alcoholic
drink is OK but mass quantities
everyday is not. It stops the
production of the enzyme, lipase,
which breaks down fats,
leading to fat storage aka a "beer
I got my hands on raw milk for the first in my life a couple of weeks ago. Had to drive 1.5 hrs to get to a small farm on the outskirts of a big city. They had a deal that day for buy 3 gallons, get one free. It was expensive (~$21 for the three gals), but well worth it. I did a little research on the processing done on milk in grocery stores.
Pasteurization is the process invented by Louis Pasteur for killing microorganisms in WINE. In the mid-to-late 1800s dairy cows were kept in urban areas to prevent spoilage from transportation. As populations increased, this led to over-crowding of the cows in poor living conditions, which of course led to diseased cows and sickness from milk. So Pasteur's method was applied to milk to kill the pathogens found in LOW-QUALITY milk. In 1947 states began to pass mandatory pasteurization laws, and by 1973 the US made a law that all milk sales across state borders had to be pasteurized.
In case anyone did not know the process, milk is heated to 100°C for a period of time. This kills any harmful pathogens that might be found in the milk, BUT it also kills most of the good bacteria (also called probiotics), enzymes, etc. A good analogy for this is the modern education system. You have a handful of great students, a majority that are average, and a handful of students that refuse to apply themselves or that have alternative learning styles. Common sense would tell you to work individually with students since everyone learns differently and have different potentials. Secular politics demands you cater to the lowest denominator, pulling everyone down to the bottom rung. The same is true with the dairy industry. Rather than investing money in each cow to ensure they are producing healthy, quality milk, the government decided to make a sub-par standard to make sure the poorest milk doesn't kill you; then, applied that standard to the healthy cow milk.
Homogenization is just as bad. This process is used to keep milk from separating into layers. If you let raw milk sit undisturbed for a day or two, there will be an obvious top layer of fat/cream that is equivalent to half-and-half used for coffee (half cream, half milk). The layers mix back together very easily by simply shaking the jug. Since grocery stores don't want to pay employees to shake all the milk every day, they use homogenization to make sure the layers no longer separate. The process works by using high pressure to force large lipid droplets (healthy fat) in the milk through a disk resembling a filter. This forces the large droplets to break up into much finer droplets. Anyone who has studied chemistry knows that triglyceride molecules (fat) are large, highly complex compounds. Homogenization completely alters the structure of the compounds.
There is no way to know whether these two processes are harmful or not. However, I do not see any way that processed milk could have the same nutritional value as the milk that is kept the same way that God created it to be. You can search for local raw milk farms on realmilk.com and clicking on the "Real Milk Finder" link at the top of the page. This website also had reliable info on real milk versus grocery store milk and testimonials from people who switched to raw milk.
Remember that God called Israel "a land that floweth with milk and honey" and equates milk is one of the foods that He equates with His word. First Peter 2:2-3 says, "As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious."
Question for the brethren: brother Bryan said on his latest livestream that he would not recommend supplementing with iodine tinctures, but to find food sources of iodine instead (pretty much limited to oceanic plants). I bought J. Crow's Lugol iodine a few weeks ago and have only read about it being very beneficial, apart from the FDA saying it should only be consumed in microgram amounts... Does anyone know more about Bryan's opinion, or have extra info for iodine? Thanks!
I noticed he said that to I agree the more natural the better, that said I use something similar to Lugol iodine with not complaints, I find it helps with brain fog and is good for skin etc. My next bottle will be from a kelp source, that said use up what you got and maybe find a more natural source next.
Thanks, brother Jeff. I was thinking the same, find a food source when this bottle runs low. I've never had kelp before though and it doesn't sound too appetizing 😆
I've been putting a drop of iodine on minor cuts, bug bites, etc. and it works great! I'll probably end up keeping some around for an antiseptic
What pan is the best for cooking?
Anything without Teflon! Unfortunately, I cannot afford non-poisonous cookware at the moment, but I would consider buying cast iron, stainless steel, or copper/copper-clad pots and pans. Brother Bryan recommended this brand in one of his recent cooking videos: https://www.ebay.com/bhp/paul-revere-copper
