Hi There!!! I was listening to Duke and The Doctor the other day, and Dr. McBarron was talking about cold sores, and the connection with corn. Corn is very high in argenine. Argenine is buddies with the Herpes virus, therefore contributing to the eruption of cold sores. Argenine suppresses Lysine, which retards virus growth/boosts the immune system. Here is a great link that I found in researching this info that Dr. McBarron had brought up http://www.globalherbalsupplies.com/herpes/herpes_diet_information.htm
Now, since this is the case, isn’t it interesting how many more immune compromising dis- eases have cropped up over the past 10 -15 years and how many more uses we have found for corn over the past 10-15 years? Isn’t corn in pretty much everything in one form or another when it comes to prepared foods today? Beverages, cake mixes, sauces, ice cream, sweeteners. I bet if you went to the grocery store and randomly picked ten items off the shelves, read the ingredients, corn would be an ingredient in some form.
Whenever we are talking about a food antagonist, they surface in one shape or way in the gut. Whether it is intestinal issues like diarrhea or constipation, rashes, or as an immune issue disguised something else (sinuses, lung issues, or even autoimmune). It is true. If a food poses a threat to the body (the body does not recognize it as digestible) it forms antibodies to protect itself.
What are autoimmune diseases all about? The body attacking itself.
Where has this shingles outbreak come from all of a sudden that an immunization has had to be created? My aunt had shingles when I was a child. It was terrible. I cannot even imagine the pain she was in, knowing what it all about now. But she was in a huge amount of stress in her life at that time with her job being under fire plus other health issues, so it seems right(?) that Shingles would crop up due to her immune system being compromised from the stress. 8 years ago I contracted Epstein Barr from working 50+ hours a week not including a hour drive each way, and taking care of 2,3 and 13 year old, being Wonder Woman. My sister contracted Mononucleosis in high school after moving down here from New Jersey, having a completely different school, friends, lifestyle, and classes (STRESS!!!!!). So, naturally, these are all different strains of the Chicken Pocks. So is Shingles, so are cold sores
Do we really want to aggravate our bodies into more illnesses than what we all ready have or do we want to boost our immune systems to keep our health in check?
Health takes a conscious effort, just like any other good thing in life does. We develop muscles through exercise. We continue brain health by doing different tasks. We keep bone density through weight bearing exercise (our great grandparents didn’t have bone density issues). Eating whole foods, that we prepare with love and positivity (or have someone prepare for us if we don’t like/have time to cook) is how we sustain immune health.
I Love Everybody!!!
