Sea Moss Prep

How to get Seamoss in a Gel form (when it is in its dried state)?

  • Seamoss can be blended with various ingredients.

  • Step 1:

  • Soak in natural spring water for some amount of hours. About 8-12 hours or there about would be ok. This is to revive/re-electrify it from it’s dried state. Also, soaking it will help to get rid of some of the sea/salty taste.

  • Step 2:

  • Rinse about 3 times in key lime spring water. You can use just water if key limes are not available. This will further take away the salty/sea taste from it.

  • Step 3:

  • While the above is being done (step 2), boil some amount of spring water in a pot. Then pour this hot spring water on the Seamoss, which would have been already rinsed and placed in container. Allow the seamoss to simmer in the hot water for about 40mins or there about.

  • Step 4:

  • After soaking in the hot water for about 40min, pour the Seamoss and warm water (coming from hot to warm by this) into your blender. Select the liquefy option on the blender. Blend until it turns into liquid.

  • Step 5:

  • Further allow to cool after blending. Pour out the mixture/liquid in a glass jar/jug. Place in your refrigerator without a lid on the jar. Not the freezer part. This will then turn to gel form after a few hours. It can stay in refrigerator of some amount of weeks.

  • One research study found, “practically all [coffee] samples (91.7%) were contaminated with molds.” Conventional coffee is among the most heavily chemically treated foods in the world. It’s steeped in synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and insecticides.
  • Coffee grows best in the shade – but it’s not easy to mass-grow coffee in dense, lush forests. So conventional coffee growers plow down and flatten giant fields to grow their chemically-loaded coffee.

    Diabetes

    Diabetes

    Diabetes Overview;
  • The body does not produce any, or enough insulin or is not able to utilize the insulin properly. Insulin is secreted by the pancreas from beta cells found in the pancreas. Insulin is a hormone that helps the glucose to get in the cells to give them energy.
  • Carbohydrates are broken down into glucose and passed into the blood.Insulin is released in response to rising glucose in the bloodstream.
  • Due to consumption of acidic, mucus forming foods especially foods high in carbohydrates, the pancreas get affected and its homeostasis process is disrupted. This in turn affects the process of cell energy metabolism. When this happens they label you as pre-diabetic or diabetic.
  • The main source of energy is carbohydrates. This can be further broken down to glucose, sucrose and fructose. Glucose mainly comes from grains. Most grains have been hybridized and genetically modified(gmo).
  • This includes white wheat, potatoes, corn, most beans, most nuts etc. Starch is a chemical used to bind two plants of different molecular structures in order to create a third or a different plant.
  • Starch is very complex and the body is unable to break it down to cellular level. Diabetes can lead to peripheral artery disease (PAD). PAD causes your blood vessels to narrow and reduces blood flow to your legs and feet.
  • It may also cause nerve damage, known as peripheral neuropathy. This could prevent you from feeling pain. If you can’t feel pain, you may not realize you have a wound or ulcer on your feet.
  • You may continue putting pressure on the affected area, which can cause it to grow and become infected. Reduced blood flow can slow wound healing.
  • It can also make your body less effective at fighting infection. As a result, your wound may not heal. Tissue damage or death (gangrene) may occur, and any existing infection may spread to your bone.
  • If the infection cannot be stopped or the damage is irreparable, amputation may be necessary. The most common amputations in people with diabetes are the toes, feet, and lower legs.
  • Most carbohydrates have starch in them and the measuring scale is called the glycemic index. The higher a product is on a scale of 0-100, the more modified it is. 55 and lower is considered a safe glycemic index and safe for diabetics.
  • Below are some examples:
      1. Spelt flour -44
      2. Corn flour -70
      3. Wheat flour -85
      4. Sorghum -70
      5. White rice-72
      6. Kamut -44
      7. Quinoa -54
      8. Wild rice – 45
      9. Potatoes – 80
      10. White sugar 65
      11. Agave nectar (from cactus plant) 17
      12. Honey 60
  • Bitter melons increases insulin sensitivity and can restore functions to damaged pancreases cells.
  • Prickly pears cactus plant is capable of decreasing the blood sugar levels and can be very beneficial to people with diabetes.
  • The nopal has an antihyperglycemic effect that prevents the elevation of glucose, helping the pancreas to not overproduce insulin. Removing of complex starches is necessary to prevent and to reverse this thing called diabetes.
  • Fructose which is the energy from mostly fruits is metabolized by the liver and so it does not need insulin for cells to use it. The fruits must be alkaline wild seeded fruits.
  • If you are suffering with this condition, please reach out to me, so we can discuss how we can help moving forward. Thank you so much.
