Humans are Frugivores ?. . huh?

A peek @ the path I’m on now. . feel I owe you – need to share

It’s not what I’m used to — change can be a challenge,  but is sure easy, less costly to do.

Actually, I put this video up in mid-September when I discovered Dr Robert Morse, but somehow, it never became a post.  I was so blown away by the implications of possibility, that it was literally, impossible to let it go.  What if this is true!  If it is — how could humanity have veered so far away from our destined path.  Is it reasonable to expect answers?  Only way I’ll “know” is to test the premise for myself.  I have almost buried myself in the study, few books and much online search.   And for sure, I sent for his book “THE DETOX MIRACLE SOURCEBOOK.”  W/O the book, didn’t know what else to do but eat grapes and melons.  

Of course, I started the fruit diet within a few days – after a trip to the store. . and never looked back. Have to admit I enjoyed the fruit, bananas including honeydew and watermelon plus a ton of grapes. That was about a month ago.  Still like all, but with the cooling weather, I’m missing my warm food.   (have roasted zucchini, cauliflower and different colored peppers, plus a sweet potato/drowned in butter and garlic seasoned with sea-salt) one night when I was feeling a tad rebellious. I swooned with joy. Surprisingly, about 30 – 40 minutes later, I began to feel somewhat loggy, heavy. . dull.  I kid you not.  Had grown to expect that special “brightness” I’d had, but with just that one meal of cooked veggies (which are totally acceptable, organic, marvellous choices. . hands down!)  Never happened when I added gorgeous salads – quite often whenever I felt I needed more “food.”  So that remains an item I must figure out. 

Having watched Dr Morse on youtube so often – maybe 20 or 30 of those videos, I get it that more variety is okay, but cooking on this DETOXING  thing is not good (reduced/delayed). Valuable nutrient is destroyed by  heat. . and I do know that.  My plan includes to become as healthy as I didn’t know I “WASN’T”.  My June ’17 blood-draw was enviable. I’m really, by most standards,  a pretty healthy  person (even with my five chronic diseases which I seem to be handling fairly well)  Brain seems fine, heart is holding it’s own and nothing else matters as much to me as these two organs. .(dumb thing to say!) 

One of the things which set Dr Morse apart from any other practitioner (Naturopathic or not) is his huge emphasis on the importance of the lymphatic system (as the sewer of the body). It carries away the waste from every other feature, cell, organ, etc of the entire body.   Generally exits thru the kidneys and skin.   Actually – this was the biggest news for me when I realized that one could actually ‘see’ this in action.  When the lymphatic system is doing it’s job as it is designed to do, . . all systems are a go; one is healthy with no problems. (diseases)   One of the ways we have,  is to pee in a jar/put the lid on it/ place in refrigerator for four hours to 24.  If kidneys are filtering – there will be impurities appear and settle to the bottom of jar.  Could be a whole lot of ‘stuff’, stringy stuff, gelatinous stuff or even like a shaken snow-globe full-of-stuff.  Mine has nothing in it, just clear yellowish, kinda pretty urine.  That’s not good.  It needs garbage in it that my body  has sloughed off in just metabolising its food – and all the other glands and organs too.  It’s either exiting the body or it is messing stuff up inside us and we don’t know the damage until the whatever manifestation shows up as some “cause-unknown”disease.  No one knows why these things happen.  And we buy it – over and over.  One could say – the body is talking to us. . but who’s listening? . . who knew we should find meaning in this?  Well it makes sense to me, and I’m damned if I will wait a year tinkering around the edges’  my MO is whole hog, so I’m staying with it.

Have secured some herbs and stuff to help my body  in this task.  Which reminds me that I found another site where one can get most of the low-down on this group of people in how they operate, what they do, and how they  help one another.  It’s called “”  It has headings across the top row, and I started with HOME.  Had I found this earlier, wouldn’t have had to buy the book as almost everything is to be found there (and I’ve DL’d much). . just sayin’  . . .   Also,  one of the link references was a lady by the name of Susan Weeks who is knowledgeable with tinctures, etc.,.   Loved her site  – –  She teaches what she does as well as writing books, especially for menopausal women. I would seriously recommend her understanding of anything herbal. 

To detox, will rid the body of unwanted stuff from pharmaceuticals and other toxins, and all the stored waste product the body is not eliminating as it should.  Staying inside our body guarantees, it doesn’t just putrefy, it forms into cysts, pustulas, growths and tumors.   Glands and organs malfunction and corrupt and die; systems falter; we weaken, breakdown and die.  Sooner or later, we are all gonna die, but how much nicer to die in a whole, functioning body which serves us well til we no longer wish to do so.  Oh,  I’ve  lived long enough,  had a great life filled with spectacular people (family, friends and co-workers) and have kept finding new avenues of expression,  new reasons to be and enjoy; to love and revel at the wonder of it all.  This new path kinda fits with my need to be the best I can be. . . (not better than anyone else), just a personal thing. . like my mom,. . my husband,. . son, ya do it cuz ya can. . .if you want to.  Honestly, didn’t mean to get so endless. . .  .  just wanted to share this video – – I loved it a month ago and again tonite when I found it hiding out in my to-do stuff.   

I love the way Dr Morse ‘splains the process.  Adore the way he seems to have a passion for our souls. . without a trace of dogma. . seemingly universal, which I can handle well enough.  Mostly, I’m fascinated by his brilliance and distinguished background, tho he delivers all with such great simplicity and so caringly.  I do hope that each of you, in listening and watching this video will find a bit of info or enrichment to make it worth your while as you absorb  the message.   . . be well, and happy,  Jan

Clean your fresh food

Protecting your health

How to Clean Your Fruits and Vegetables Naturally

How to Clean Your Fruits and Vegetables Naturally
I found this article at the site which has improved my comfort zone (of safety) for all the fresh food I’m eating now.   Actually, that’s all I’m eating and  loving it.   Feeling better, lighter, brighter.  Food bill is lower now, as is my kitchen time less (tho I loved playing in the kitchen – just a big part of me) . . but I have other parts which are now granted more time. .and am liking some of the changes. 
I probably won’t be shouting from the rooftops on my latest lifestyle changes of living on raw foods (for now, mostly fruit).  Let’s face it, who’s gonna believe an 88 year-old who seems to have ‘lost it’ ?   My body (laboratory) is feeling happier, more energized and at a weight I haven’t experienced since I was in early 20’s.  Not hoping for miracles, but happy and willing to see where this will go – – how far. . can this actually restore my balance?   Since I don’t accept old age as a disease. . it was easy for me to open to the idea that all this loss of function and so on that elders seem to face is nothing more than breakdown of systems which have become disabled through inflammation-wrought toxicity. . .which is to say — acidic.  So-called disease flourishes within a toxic state (ACID as opposed to alkalinity).   Therefore, it pays to think of cause area in a whole different light.  To change, especially since I’ve long-stated.. “you are what you eat”. . (and can digest and utilize),  . . if I keep doing the same thing (which by current standards of informed thinkers — is actually excellent, if not near perfect. . I should expect the same result!   But that’s my problem — don’t want the same result;  to be truly healthy and reflect that in life,  one needs to be far more alkaline.  That’s kinda achievable with an open mind and a bit of effort and willingness to do.   That, I have. 
Anyway,  knowing that what I’m doing would sound alien to almost anybody – man, woman or child – well, kids would do okay, since they love and prefer fruits over almost anything else.  We’ve all grown up eating meat and potatoes,  and most of us love breads and dairy (actually, the major cause area of a large percentage of “diseases.”) and the massive percentage of protein based foods does us in. Even if it’s all the cleanest, most organic or expensive one can find.   It’s a question of acid or base.  I’m working on the detox phase (and probably will for some time)  befor I start with the rebuilding or next phase.   Not trying to be cagey or secretive.  I DID share this concept with you all when I stumbled onto Dr Robert Morse with a post called “How much Fruit are U eating” ?   There are a number of sites, plus a few hundred hours of videos on Youtube.  Gave a link on previous post,  but am putting another one below, where I got this interesting and informative article.  This is a good site.  If I had found it before, I no doubt  probably wouldn’t have bought the book, because it’s got the  “How-To’s” if anyone is interested.  But the book is  XLNT.  
Will not proselytise,  going on about how you or anyone should do this.  Really not expecting company on this journey, because it sounds too weird for most people — but this will be my focus henceforward.  This is a corner I’ve turned and will no doubt color any output I may have down the road.  Can’t promise anything. . just know, I’m still doing what I love,  enjoying it, but respect everyone’s right to choice;  therefore will not in any way criticise what you do with it.  We’re still kinda free.  take care,  Jan

Special kind of pain

Tennessee Coach Butch Jones

The October 1, 2017 game between Georgia 41/Tennessee 0     was course, very painful for Tennessee.  This was almost too                much to bear.

Such things happen to all of us sometimes, tho I have never seen such agony in full view – on camera before.                                                                                                                                 

Would everyone please, send this man some love and compassion?

How much ‘Fruit’ are U eating?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jan Turner @ 8:51 am

WHAT IF, There was a better way?

Wouldn’t it be a kick in the head if we’d been doing it all wrong?  I’m not saying that we have. . . but what if.  .  ?

What if  our super smart bodies have been turning themselves inside out trying to thrive on incorrect foods which not only are NOT the best choice for maximum health, utility and function . . . able to live, enjoy, do whatever is desired. . .including being able to reproduce throughout all our years.   Would that be something that maybe we could or should look into?

Eternal student that I am (hopefully, always open to the new), and using my body as my laboratory. . . have been looking into just that of late (the last couple of weeks).   I’m still working on it.   In quest for truth as I can understand it, I have been doing/eating nothing but fruit, berries and melons of every ilk. . . especially grapes – tons of  them.  From the first day, I was aware of a subtle brightness (hard to describe it as anything else).   Have been satisfied and having fun.  Didn’t know if I could give up my play time in the kitchen, realising how much I love to cook (since childhood).    Have thrown  out my Sourdough and starter;  have made my last of the delicious KOMBUCHA and am giving the last batch away.  Gonna miss that!  Am still indulging a huge salad daily in the afternoon.  So far, so good. 

Am keeping on with my heart protocol, but have seemingly abandoned most of the other supplements, etc., that I have carefully researched and settled on over the years.  (Essentially, scientifically documented and intelligent procedural paths for a simpler one; theoretically, a higher order of preferred nutritive value.)   So far, so good.  I’ll be spending less money,of course even with the ‘organic’ guidelines. 

I didn’t dream this stuff up;  found it accidentally online researching something else.  It blew me away. . . only pursued it because it was so bizarre,  but the element of familiar truth prodded me into a full on ‘look-see’.  Have not looked back.  Will give you some links to what I’m seeing/doing now.  Jan

Act/Vote to cut BIG PhRMA costs

Gotta “Vote” YES to cut those costs

The Governmental mess we have presently is not conducive to want to vote for anything. . believe me – I understand!  Almost beyond thinkable or watchable.  But please, value at least your own interests.  .  .  don’t let The pharmaceutical industry continue to win every issue they set their mind to.  PROFIT is the only issue for them.  Not safety, our health and/or welfare or whether their toxic meds even do anything remotely like they suggest they do.   If they don’t kill us outright, they bury us in debt     

I found a couple of articles in current papers online and have recapped some of each simply to make the point without regard to sources.  The FDA,   our court system, nor any part of our government will step up and protect us from the medical travesty we face.  Indeed – it continues to escalate almost to the point of no-return.     

For one thing, it’s hard to get Americans to pull together behind any single cause. . . we are so diverse, as we should be – no two the same.  Tho we are more alike than we are different – – whose gonna do it?. . . organize us, . . get on the same page?  Well, it  happens that someone is  doing his damnedest to bring those medical drug costs down!  Has been doing it in his state of California (the story below speaks of it).   No one has more money than the drug companies (and we all gave it to them) – they get what they want!  I can’t change stuff – stop them, make them behave. . . nor can you.  But together, on the same page at least on this one thing – WE CAN STOP THEM.  The turnout of our Ohio voters was pretty sad;  that was yesterday.  This can be a new day, dig down, you do care.  Stop this abuse. . . take back your power.  Our vote gives us at least – that.  I don’t – won’t use any PhRMA period, but that’s just me- – oddball that I am.  And I WILL  definitely vote for this cost reduction and the meager restrictions it will have on Pharmaceuticals.  It’s not enough, but it sure is better than nothing.   I vote YES on 2 – lower that cost!        Jan


Ohio’s drug price ballot issue: What’s really going on?

An initiative aimed at controlling drug prices that’s headed to Ohio’s November ballot has already caused much heated debate.

As both supporters and opponents of the Ohio Drug Price Relief Act — Issue 2 on the November ballot — air TV ads and make claims about the initiative’s impact, it can be difficult for voters to understand what’s really going on.  (ya think?)

What does the ballot issue say?

Issue 2 would require that the state, including the Ohio Department of Medicaid, pay the same or lower prices for prescription drugs as the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs — which currently negotiates drug prices 20 to 24 percent less than other agencies. (helps, but rest of world pays far less than we do)

It would forbid any state agency or state-funded program — Medicaid, state prisons, the Ohio HIV Drug Assistance Program for example — from entering into a purchase agreement with drug manufacturers unless the net cost of the drug is the same or less than the VA pays.


The Californian behind Issue 2 — the prescription drug price relief proposal on Ohio’s Nov. 7 ballot — has only biting words for his opponent — Big Pharma.  Michael Weinstein, president of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, talked about the pharmaceutical industry’s “big lie” in a conference call with Ohio reporters on Wednesday.

The TV ad campaign waged by the industry-funded Ohioans Against the Deceptive Rx Ballot Issue falsely suggests that he and his nonprofit would profit financially from passage of Issue 2, Weinstein said.   “That’s been the primary basis for the shameful, sleazy campaign financed by dark money” provided by the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, the trade group representing drug makers, Weinstein said.

He also labeled some drug makers as “the same people who got Ohioans hooked on opioids in the first place.” Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has sued five drug companies, alleging they violated laws in peddling opioids to create addicts and prop up profits.

Weinstein also called out pharmaceutical companies for refusing to disclose their contributions to oppose Issue 2 and challenged any of their chief executive officers to debate the merits of the issue. The Ohio Elections Commission is hearing a complaint on Thursday that anti-Issue 2 forces have illegally failed to disclose their contributors.

He estimates that drug companies will spend up to $60 million, or more, to beat back Issue 2. “Obviously, we’re the underdog, David vs. Goliath, and they are going to spend as much money as it takes.” Weinstein’s nonprofit is spending millions on the pro-Issue 2 campaign.

“This should be a debate between principles — not hired guns,” he said. “The CEOs of these companies know they cannot lean on the issue of drug pricing, so they have to change the issue.”

Dale Butland, spokesman for Ohioans Against Issue 2, said, ”“Lies? Since Issue 2 would neither reduce drug costs for consumers nor save money for taxpayers, forget Burger King — Mr. Weinstein’s campaign is now the home of the Whopper. Which is why newspaper editorials all across the state … are urging Ohioans to vote ‘no’ on Issue 2.”

Opponents and the drug industry claim such a scheme would be difficult to implement and could backfire, causing drug shortages and higher prices for other consumers.

Weinstein said his AIDS nonprofit is recognized as the largest of its kind in the world and serves more than 820,000 clients internationally, including 17,000 in Ohio. “We won’t be making any money off this … All dollars earned go back to our mission,  Voters in Ohio should know the ads they are seeing are being paid for by the money they pay for drugs,” he said.

  • Ohio’s Issue 2 is nearly identical to one defeated by 53 percent of the vote in California last year. Big Pharma spent $110 million on the campaign; Weinstein’s nonprofit spent $19 million.
