What is Celiac Disease

Celiac disease also known as celiac sprue, nontropical sprue and gluten sensitive enteropathy, is a disease concerning the digestive system in that it damages the small intentine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food.

The protein gluten, found in wheat, rye and barley, cannot be tolerated by people with celiac disease.  When people with celiac disease eat foods containing gluten, their immune system responds by damaging or losing the villi, tiny finger like protrusions, on the lining of the small intestine.  Nutrients from food are absorbed into the bloodstream through these villi.  Without villi, a person becomes malnourished regardless of the quantity of food eaten.

Celiac disease is considered an autoimmune disorder because the body's own immune system causes the damage.  It is also classified as disease of malabsorption because nutrients are not absorbed.

It is a genetic disease, meaning that it runs in families.  Sometimes the disease is triggered, or becomes active for the first time, after surgery, pregnancy, childbirth, viral infection or severe emotional stress.

What are the Symptoms?
Symptoms may or may not occur in the digestive system.  For example, one person might have diarrhea and abdominal pain, while another person has irritability or depression.  In fact, irritability is one of the most common symptoms in children.  Other systems are especially concerning children because they need the nutrients to develop properly.  Symptoms may include one or more of the following:
  • Behavior changes
  • Bone pain
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Delayed growth
  • Failure to thrive in infants
  • Fatigue
  • Gas
  • Missed menstrual periods 
  • Muscle cramps
  • pain in the joints
  • Painful skin rash, called dermantitis herpetiformis
  • Pale, foul-smelling stool
  • Pale, sores inside the mouth, called aphthus ulcers
  • Recurring abdominal bloating and pain
  • Seizures
  • Tingling numbness in the legs
  • Tooth discoloration or loss of enamel
  • Weight loss

What are the complications of Celiac Disease?

A person with Celiac disease is at risk for several diseases and health problems because of damage to the small intestine and resulting problems with nutrient absorption.
  • Lymphoma and adenocarcinoma are types of cancer that can develop in the intestine
  • Osteoporosis is a condition from poor calcium absorption in which the bones become weak, brittle and prone to breaking
  • Miscarriage and congenital malformation of the baby, such as neural tube defects
  • Children may developed into short stature
  • Seizures or convulsions, result from inadequate absorption of folic acid causing calcium deposits called calcification, to form in hte brain, which in turn cause seizures

What can be done?

  • Eating meals that include rice, corn and buckwheat
  • A change of diet consists of tons of fermented foods that are not wheat based especially homemade yogurt, kefirs, sour cream and cottage cheese.
  • Plenty of veggies, nuts, seeds and fruits are beneficial

MA Nutritional Supplements that may help the condition:

Ultimate Aloe, OPC-3, Antioxidant, Multivitamin, Vitamin C,
Digestive Enzyme, Calcium, B-Complex
, Complete Green

Say No To Cancer!

Cancer is the body's natural auto-genic self-healing system responding beautifully to try and keep you alive in spite of your ignorant and or weak willed self !

Here is an example, say you are diagnosed with stomach cancer.  Each of your cells has a job to muscle cells, eye cells and blood cells.  They are all constantly working and they will do the job no matter what.

The stomach cells have a job of producing mucous to protect the stomach lining from the acid that other cells make in order to digest the food you eat.  However, the foodless foods like doughnuts, soda pop, processed white flour, synthetic and processed sugars etc... create plaque sludge that cells don't recognise.

The plaque could become lodged onto the lining of the stomach, covering some of the mucous producing cells if it isn't removed by water and fiber from wholesome whole foods and walking.  Cells often lose their ability to perform their tasks when they are coated in plaque.

NOW get this! A cell will do what a cell's gotta do to do this job; they never slouch.  For example, supposed that daily, a cell is to make "X" amount of mucous.  This mucosal lining is to completely replace itself every three to five days.  Say, though, that this particular cell is blocked by plaque and can only product 5% of the "X" mucous.  This cell then will go into mitosis to make 20 other cells so that it can get the job done.  The 20 new cells will be doing the same job as the original cell, but they will also be covered with plaque from the original cell.

This means that they too, will divide themselves into 20 more cells each in order to accomplish their job.  So, that means there will be 400 new cells trying to get the job of the first cell's task of "X" amount done.  This is what we call Cancer or your cells trying to protect you. 
Then what will happen is the autoimmune and self-healing intelligence of other specialised cells will see what is going on and move into the area in order to build a room.  This room will contain the flow of plaque being renewed every day by the foods being eaten lie foodless foods and lifeless drinks, supplements and medications.  This room will also try to contain the cells trying to keep up their assigned task.  We call this room a Tumor.  Really, it is brilliant, self-containment area for disabled cells and toxic sludge.

The simplest and best solution
  1. Stay away from foodless foods and drinks that create the plaque.
  2. Make sure to get ample fresh air, clean water, sunshine, walking and intact whole foods to remove the thick catarrhal plaque that led to the problem in the first place.  Then the tumor is no longer needed so that body slowly empties its contents into the metabolic cold fusion furnace for disposal and elimination.  Life is good and health returns; so Cancer is your friend, plaque is not.
  3. All medication add to the plaque.  No plaque = No worms.

Little Things Matter

"All successful people are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work everyday toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose. ~ Brian Tracy

Are you aware that baby steps, little things, daily consistent actions are what matter? It's easy for us to get stuck in the rat race and don't know how to get out of the rut, but if we can focus on one little thing and baby step at a time, our big goals can be achieved!

According to successful entrepreneur Todd Smith, little things matter! The little things can influence every part of our lives and make all the difference, whether it's our relationship, business, health and career. It's the little thing that matters, and gives us the edge.

Here are some of the little things that can make a big difference in our lives:
  • Calling people by their names
  • Arriving at appointments 10-15 minutes before
  • Smiling and being friendly in communications
  • Being presentable and tidy, wearing make up
  • Keeping shoes clean all the time
  • Returning people's calls and emails asap
  • Making eye contact
  • Sending a thank-you note after presentation
For things to get better, we must get better. Each time we get an idea for an action from an inspiration, we must implement it immediately. Don’t delay. Don’t procrastinate. It's the little things that ultimately mean the most!
