The bad news: Let’s face it; given recent events, it’s abundantly clear that the remnant will eventually be effectively cut off from the mainstream medical establishment. We will be forced to remain healthy without the “help” of the outside world.
For 20 years, I knew these days were coming, and have thus empowered myself to take strides to learn whatever was necessary to become medically self-sovereign. Except when I needed to remove a metal filing particle in my eye in 2009, I have not required non-dental medical attention for any illness or injury in almost 20 years. While I have medical insurance through a family member, I only use it for annual physicals with bloodwork. I forgo all those annual colonoscopies and other types of expensive and invasive testing procedures.
The good news: Keep in mind that most diseases, and virtually all chronic illnesses, are completely avoidable. This includes cancer. If we view our health from this perspective, we can have faith to empower ourselves to remain healthy on our own terms, and without the need of doctors with their counterintuitive measures. Our adversary promotes the flourishing of chronic illnesses and diseases with their foods and modern chemistry, as a means to ensnare us in their system.
I want to ask you what conclusions you have come to regarding healthy eating and maintaining the body.
Do you have any particular resources or individuals that you have followed that helped enlighten you regarding this?
I happen to have a lot of atherosclerosis and therefore heart disease so I’m just shifting around trying to figure out the best direction and most healthy diet lifestyle. I like to ask smart people what they’re doing when I have doubts and hence this email-if you have a few thoughts regarding this I’d love to hear them.
Thanks for everything you do!
Here is my response:
As for my own eating and exercising habits, I stick to four lifestyle choices;
- Time restricted eating (TRE); I usually eat within a six hour window each day. I know this may sound rigorous, but I strive to wait until noon to eat. I eat during the afternoon, and by 6-6:30pm I am usually too full for anything else before bed. Anyone can condition his or her body to adjust to this choice. Despite what doctors say, breakfast is not the most important meal of the day. It takes a few weeks to acclimate to the adjustments, and if I need to do something outside of my normal routine in the morning, I drink a scoop of natural whey protein. If you decide to eat earlier in the day, just push forward the time you stop. try to keep it to six hours.
- Supplementation for specific conditions; I take up to 40 different supplements and amino acids each day. I know that sounds insane, but they work. For example, I had hypothyroidism and all four of my sisters have it, and take drugs. My mom had thyroid cancer. Since I rearranged my lifestyle, my thyroid is normal and has been for a decade. I use some for blood sugar maintenance, cholesterol, metabolism, and my (former) arrhythmia. I take several for anti-aging, male health, and cognitive improvement. I take some to prevent cancer, since it is prevalent in my family. I also have not yet needed glasses and take several supplements for microvascular and eye health. In addition, I eat about 15 to 20 apricot kernels a day.
- Weight training and calisthenics; I generally alternate with body parts (e.g. legs and abs one day, then chest/back and abs the next day) and perform plenty of calisthenics (e.g. push-ups, pull-ups, chin-ups, sit-ups, dips, etc,) with hardly any cardio, except for walking. I typically perform each set until exhaustion. Cardio is not not healthy for older people.
- Plenty of black or dark coffee during the resting phase :). Drinking coffee or whey helps with suppressing the appetite. If I am craving later in the day or do not wish to consume any more caffeine, I stick to the whey.
I have spent over 20 years formulating my daily exercise and eating routines, and are the result of lots of research and trial and error. Many older athletes and bodybuilders I have spoken to swear by this stuff. TRE really does work as the body needs to clean itself out and get to a basing metabolic rate on a daily basis.
I learned a lot from Dr. Mercola and Dr. Sears over the years. Though both have daily blogs and research, Dr. Mercola has had to scale back his health advice and disease treatment protocols, since he has been critical of the MSMs covid stance.
My mother was always struggling with illness, and since most of it was avoidable, I made an effort to not end up like her. Thus, I was always interested in taking control of my own health, so I have spent a lot of time over the years advancing my studies.
If you choose this path, please be aware that doctors generally frown upon taking supplements, since many of the drugs they prescribe work in a similar manner as natural supplements, yet supplements rarely have adverse side effects. For instance, I take curcumin for its anti-inflammatory and anti-angiogenic properties. It is also highly effective for thinning blood. It may even be as efficacious as warfarin. Thus, do not take curcumin if you decide to take the prescription.
When I undergo my annual physicals, I do not reveal any of these above four routines to the doctors, since they will not view them favorably.
Because I employ the above four aspects to my daily routine, I have found that I can eat more carbs than I used to, though when I am not working out and such, I lay off the carbs, especially sugar. I do eat eat fruit and honey, however, but it is all from organic sources. I eat tons of fat, butter, nuts (no peanut butter since the aflatoxins in PB make it an immunosuppressant), fatty grass-fed beef, chicken, and dairy. I strive for mostly organic. I eat hardly any processed foods and chow down lots of greens.
My low carb, time restricted feeding will run counter to the typical doctor’s advice, but it serves me very well and those who swear by it.
Phil Mickelson was asked how he lost so much weight before winning the PGA championship and he remarked, intermittent fasting (TRE) and lots of coffee.
I agree with him, though I wish I could cut down on coffee and replace it with something else.
