millie says clean your kidney beans

kidney beanskidneys

clean your kidney beans. The primary role of the complex renal system is to balance bodily fluids by filtering and secreting metabolites and minerals from the blood and passing them with water. in doing so urine filters out water soluble debris and balances blood synthesis, sugar and pressure. the most useful element for cleaning the nephron is pure water. litres of it per day will call the wild, and the more the better in order to fulfill the above functions. a low to moderate sodium, sugar and allergen intake is also necessary to help the regulators regulate. certain foods and herbs that raise renal raison d’etre are a regular addition of sour foods (cranberry, sour cherries and lemon), foods high in chlorophyll (parsley, kale, dandelion), and herbal tea concoction of juniper berry, marshmallow root, cleavers, oatstraw, horsetail, dandelion root, uva ursi help the kidney function their best. dont avoid the void, pass the pass.

millie says AGE gracefully not gruesomely

AGE gracefully not gruesomely. who knows the definitive answer why marlon brando plunged from utmost physical beauty quickly over to the other side… using he, who was emotionally tormented (stress’ed), laden with diabetes (obese, sugared and pickled), had congestive heart failure (obese, oxidatively damaged) and cancer (mutated cell’ed) as a shockingly poignant example….one can envision AGE, despite its chemical complexities.

advanced glycation entities (AGE) are the result of a chemical process in the body that happens when a poor lifestyle (high fat, sugar, alcohol, smoking meets low fruits, veggies, antioxidants, fibre, exercise) greets middle age. what you get when you combine overdoses of sugar and with free-radicals in the long run. beauty one decade, beast the next. these lead to wrinkles, large pores and nevi in the nose, blindness from cataracts, clogs in the arteries leading to strokes and heart attacks and possibly cancer, of which marlon brando had…them all.

millie says take a worrywort rather than a chill pill

take a worrywort rather than a chill pill. a wort is a herb named after the item it’s meant to heal such as liverwort (machantia), lungwort (pulmonaria) or for poisonous bites drink a snakewort (senega). while this method of naming is folkloric, most common in native medicine, a wort is a healing agent rather than a proliferator of such and such.

individual worts must be wisely consumed based on each of their merit not simply on titulage. St John’s Wort (hypericum) was identified by ‘doctrine of signatures’ or appearance giving way to its function. named after John the Baptist, whose feast day, June 24 th, occurs on european solstice when the plant is in full bloom resembles a halo with its five yellow petals and flowing red sap that symbolises the blood of the martyred saint.the name Hypericum means ‘greatest health’.

rather than worrying be proactive with your health as it could prevent the real health worries down the road or just take one of the many worryworts, including me with a grain of salt: hypericum, kava, melissa (lemon balm), passion flower, hops, catnip, chamomile, valerian, borage. and worry not.

millie says wallow in yourself for an hour

wallow in yourself for an hour. set up a date to meet a reliable friend, a compassionate all-round task-oriented efficiency expert. make a list of all your problems; be as specific as possible. 1) moths in my sweater cupboard 2) single and miserable. dont know if that girl is going to call me again. 3) made less money this year than last year. 4) 4th cold of the year- winter is playing tricks on me. meet your friend for a warm beverage to help you put into perspective how bad or good your life is. take suggestions, accept help, gather support, kindness, leaps of faith, boots to the head. when that friend loses steam; you know as they’re less attentive, using uh-huh a lot, stop providing as many insightful observations. then it’s time to switch it up and for you to be the compassionate all-round task-oriented efficiency expert.

millie says show up

to quote Woody Allen- “80% of success is showing up”. now I would like you to slowly inhale all relaxation then exhale all tensions as you ponder on the word SUCCESS. it may be satisfaction and achievement in your career or chosen field of life; an enjoyable and pleasing sex life, tightly-knit, loving family ties; ability to form firm friends and network in social gatherings or possessing the skill and confidence to speak well in public. it may mean the ability achieve your goals which contribute to your personal satisfaction in social and work life and the determination to achieve said goals. it may mean the ability to throw off inhibitions, be spontaneous, express deep inner feelings without fear or judgement. success may mean financial and material possession or security for yourself and your family. it can also show itself in inner happiness and presence of mind regardless of material possessions or circumstances. it could mean the ability to over-come problems long lasting or acute, possibly even some problem about which you do not know. whatever the word success means to you, use the emotional stimulus generated from it to produce in all the feelings which go with success and then show up.

millie says calibrate the span of life and health

calibrate the span of life and health. currently north americans suffer most from preventable ‘illnesses of excess’ related to smoking, drinking, poor diets, stress and lack of exercise. Some of these conditions include metabolic syndrome, heart disease, depression, kidney diseases, diabetes type II, infertility and certain cancers. we are living longer but suffering more chronically resulting in a life though lengthy, not necessarily happy. Canada currently ranks 10th on the map of merriment while the land-of-the-free-home-of-the-brave is way down the list at number 23. trudging moderately through the wasteful mounds of temptation to find long-lasting wellbeing as lightness at the end of the tunnel can be achieved by OWNING this chart of science simplified. I said O-W-N it.

millie says tap to heal

tap to heal. there once was an organ who dwells in the chest behind the breast bone or sternum as those detail oriented folks say. lying close to the heart, made stronger by self-love, self-care, joy, prayer and hope it was devoted to helping the body heal itself. its name was thymus gland, an endocrine organ committed to the activation of fighter and helper cells synthesized in the bone marrow. thymus gland would spring into action telling specific white cells to go to the area of weakness, infection when repair and defense was needed. this was a big job especially when it resides within the body of tired, stressed, overworked, overdrugged individuals. thymus gland told me to relay a message to you so that you would enable its ability to heal your body. if it could talk it would say “tap me to heal; I need you to be relaxed to function well; tap me to heal right at the breast bone with the tips of your fingers; coordinated arm and leg movements strengthen me such as swimming, yoga, brain games, marching; tap me to heal gently but with intent; I am nourished by antioxidants, sleep, probiotics, and astragalus; tap to heal me heal you.”

millie says find yourself today

find yourself today. first find solitude to reflect, sit in the present and ponder “who am I”. weed out the voices of others from what comes from the inside. veer off a charted course to ask yourself every question in the book about decisions you’ve made for example 1) what would I be doing with all the resources possible 2) what do I want to avoid regretting when I look back on my life 3) what words would describe the kind of person I want to be. write for 3 solid minutes clear stream consciousness without editing or sensoring a word. act upon information that emerges. prepare to do it again tomorrow, next week and next year. head hunt yourself.

millie says try the miraculous perimeter diet

try the miraculous perimeter diet. the internal aisles of the super store contain the filler- canned goods, pasta, crackers, cookies, chips, pop, condiments, marachino cherries, baking supplies, twinkies +. this long-dead food wouldn’t go bad if an elneno storm covered us in a blanket of snow for the winter, though the recent squall might have attempted to tempt stocking up on non-perishables, eating those foods creates an american health statistic. avoid filling the cart with an expanding middle by tracing the the border of the store for staples such as produce, fermented soy, meat, fish, dairy, and bread. the average american gains 7-10 pounds yearly over the holiday season. 16% of US adults have high cholesterol. 7 in 10 people do not exercise regularly. over 1/3 of red white and blues are obese. stick to the sidelines and avoid this fate since it’s not only american statistics of concern….haven’t you heard 1/11 Ontarioan adults over 20 have diabetes…but dont forget to sneak in for brown rice, lentils and beans.

millie says on the 12 days of christmas

on the 12 days of christmas my true love gave to me 12 essential B vitamins. essential because they are necessarily consumed in order to thrive. while there are gaps between the Bs due to the fact that some were originally deemed as vitamins and later discovered are nucleotides, others are non essential- as the body doesn’t need them consumed since it or another organisms’ bodies synthesize them. a long list of 22 Bs plus an additional 7 bi-nomialed roster exists but the currently accepted by nutritional standards is this:

note: Left off this usual list of multi Bs are the following purposeful yet contraversial Bs: Inositol, Choline, Carnatine, Laetrile, Lipoic Acid and PABA each have their own therapeutic function though potentially have side effects greater than the those on the Bs of B complex.
