Happy Mother’s Day, America. Today my own mother woke up in the hospital, having suffered another cardiac scare. She is fine and she will be fine. We talked on the phone this morning and I told her that in a way, she is lucky. It is my opinion that her condition is one hundred percent diet-related, and that it is one hundred percent reversible.
I say this, and I believe that her doctors would agree, that if she would eat better foods she would lose weight, her blood chemistry would straighten out, she could get off of all of the pharmaceuticals they have her on, her heart health would improve, her pulmonary health would improve, her high blood pressure and diabetes would go away.
The only thing her doctors and I disagree about is what she should be eating. They tell her to not eat red meats or lard, not to eat sugar. I tell her only eat natural foods, including lard, which is a natural fat. I tell her to get her meats from somewhere that doesn’t feed the animals corn or soy for the last six months of their lives. A person like her that is suffering from years of insulin resistance needs to get off of the insulin-glucose merry-go-round. Her blood pressure could very well be a function of her sugar addiction, or it could be from having the typical American Omega 6 to Omega 3 essential oil ratio of 15 to 1. If she would eat Omega 3 chicken eggs, eat meat from animals that were provided their natural forage instead of genetically modified grains to fatten on, if she would cook with natural lard and natural butter, perhaps her blood pressure would go down without any regard for her ‘salt intake’.
Here is a video that is fifteen minutes long. In it a doctor gives the advice that I would give my mother. If you are currently trying to give advice to a loved one that is counter to the ‘conventional wisdom’ dispensed without regard for the consequences by the health and medical communities, try showing them this TED talk.
I plan to make for my Mom a one week menu of things I think she should eat the first week out of the hospital. My menu might make her doctor cringe. There won’t be any carbs in it. The energy in it will consist of mostly natural animal fats. You could do it, too.
Mom, I am talking directly to you now. There is no reason for you to stay sick. What you eat makes you that way. If you would just follow the advice from the doctor in the video, instead of the one that talks to you after your heart attacks you would be much better off. Please listen. Please change.
