Why Grains are Now Destroying the Health of Millions

We are all familiar with the reasons that GMO foods, chemically treated foods and additives are bad for one’s health. Those things are easy to recognize with a little common sense, but there are some far more subtle and difficult to detect ways in which diet has been used against the consumer to degrade their health.

We are suddenly coming into an age where Celiac’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome and gluten intolerance are rapidly increasing health threats. This, like any disease which has increased (or even just recently came about) in the history of the human race should be warning signs. It means that something is fundamentally different (and wrong) with the dietary intake of those populations where the disease is growing. The US is leading the way in such illnesses and it can’t be a coincidence.

Anyone acquainted with the depopulation agenda of the ruling elite, also understands that their health is in their own hands.

No doctor, medical or government institute is a reasonably trustworthy resource when it comes to defining what is healthy.

In fact, it is the outright goal of these establishments to promote disease causing diets and habits. It is the lucrative business of depopulation.

As people have become far more aware than they once were of the horrors awaiting them in the grocery store, more have turned to organic and natural source foods to avoid the onslaught of chemical and genetically engineered foods.

Perhaps one of the most consumed and trusted groups of “natural” food sources includes every manner of grain, nuts, legumes and other seeds. It seems completely reasonable that not only are these things healthy when grown organically, but even necessary for optimal health.

grains

These foods do contain a high value of nutrition, but we have failed to take notice of some very important elements in how they reach our tables.

Since the first humans left the garden of Eden, mankind has had to till the soil, sow seed and harvest his crop to eat. Since that time, humanity has been an agricultural race, with nearly every culture on earth growing some form of grain.

Who questions how grains go from seed to bread? Very few of us, I think.

They have been eaten for thousands of years without trouble and had not people around me begun to exhibit some very curious symptoms, I might have never considered how grains are treated before they are consumed in this modern age.

A seed is the future of a species of plant. It is their “offspring”. That being the case, it must be a hardy little thing, containing all it needs to not only develop a new plant but also to resist environmental adversity before the point of ideal germination.

One of the key ingredients to this process is something called phytic acid.

Phytic acid is present in a significant concentration in anything that is a seed, including nuts and legumes.

phytic acid

The problem with this acid is that human beings are not able to digest it.

Only ruminating animals are capable of breaking it down with an enzyme called phytase, which human beings lack.

The obvious result might be degrees of indigestion, but the more serious result is that phytic acid depletes the body of phosphorous and many other vital nutrients, resulting in malnourishment to some level when the dietary intake of the phytic acid is high.

Furthering the problem, the “bran” or hard shell of the seed is also indigestible and consuming great quantities of it results in the equivalent of passing shrapnel constantly through the digestive tract. The bran contains phytic acid in concentration.

Seeds such as nuts, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, etc. would not be found in high concentrations in the diet of earlier civilizations.

Nuts and seeds to be eaten whole were not so commonly cultivated in great quantities, so the dietary intake of them would be more occasional and not used as a staple food source. Grains, however, were very commonly cultivated, but harvested, stored and processed much differently than they are today.

Since the idea of “whole grains” being healthy came about, many have turned to them as a staple food item, believing that the higher their intake of indigestible bran and fiber was, the better their health would be.

A “whole grain” is only as healthy as the way it came to your table, though.

In the past, agriculture was an art of patience and prayer, waiting for rain at the right times and dry weather at the right times. It was a process of waiting, reaping and storing. Now agriculture is massive, fast and mechanized.

At one time, when the harvest was ready, the grain was cut and allowed to sit in the fields for long stretches of time before it was gathered (it takes a long time to harvest fields with scythes). As the grains sat, they were exposed to rain and sun and that naturally caused many of the grains in the field to begin the germination process.

Once a seed begins to germinate, the phytic acid content drops and the nutrient value goes up.

When those grains were then taken from the fields and they reached the consumer, they were not often used as they were, but soaked in water for a length of time which further reduced the phytic acid content.

Many cultures also fermented their grains before making them into bread, and this process resulted in a much more digestible and nutrient rich final product.

Soaking Grains

Fermenting Grains

In modern farming, not only do we have pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and GMOs to consider but also added hormone growth regulators which are sprayed on the crop. These hormone regulators can legally be called “natural” or “organic” because they are often derived from other plants, but that does not mean it is at all natural to spray them on a growing crop of plants.

Since crops are no longer harvested or stored in the traditional ways, those grains become subject to fungi and pests.

To combat this, even when the seed itself has not been treated, the storage facilities spray down the storage units with fungicides and pesticides.

The grains are exposed to temperatures which deplete their nutritional content and when they are moved to a milling facility, they are milled in a “dead” state. A seed that can’t germinate is dead and it isn’t fit for consumption.

A seed that is viable but still in its closed, dormant state, is also not ideal for consumption. Milled in this state, the phytic acid content is such that when you receive the flour of bread from which it was made, you are consuming something that is not feeding, but rather robbing your system of vital nutrients and setting your digestive system (and eventually your immune system) up for failure.

In considering what is best for your health, you must also consider than not all of us have exactly the same nutritional needs. Some ethnic backgrounds can tolerate seed food sources better than others. Some would do better to never eat seed products at all.

Those who exhibit the lowest tolerance for seed foods tend to have Rh negative blood types and those are also the people who are rapidly becoming the highest instance of autoimmune dysfunction.

If you or those around you have suffered from degenerative illnesses, digestive diseases, autoimmune diseases or estrogen dominant reproductive illnesses, i might recommend that you try life without conventional grain products. Whether by way of consuming only soaked and fermented seed products or by avoiding them entirely, you may find your health greatly improved.

Their Eyes Were Opened: The Mechanism of The Fall

Posted in 02 : The Truth Is Out There... with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 09/23/2010 by timenolonger

“So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate.

She also gave to her husband with her and he ate.

Then the eyes of both of them were opened and they knew that they were naked and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings.”

– Genesis 3:6,7

In these words of Genesis is contained the account of the fall of man, the point at which mankind ceased to be in perfect harmony with their Creator and ceased to be endowed with innate everlasting life.

As believers, it is not difficult to understand the moral cause and effect which took place here. Humanity was only responsible to one command from their Elohim, no other forbidden thing had been laid on them to avoid. In their act of disobedience, heeding the misleading words of Satan, they transgressed this one law and so sin entered in upon human existence.

The consequences of this one act of disobedience were multiple and serious.

The greatest of these was the spiritual rift which was created between man and his Maker. No longer could there be direct communion between them, no longer could humans be at peace with Him and receive His close and personal fellowship. They were extracted from this relationship and cast into a state of detachment where they could, from then on, only approach Him from a distance in prayer.

Mortality came as well.

Removed from the close presence they enjoyed to the One source of life and the opportunity to be blessed with the fruit from the tree of life, the human body would inevitably perish. From dust they were created and so to dust return.

The Earth itself was alienated from those given dominion over it. Once it yielded all man would ever need and much more without cost or labor, but sin destroyed this perfect relationship which YHWH had established for them as well.

Now Earth would not respond as the domain of mankind, but instead respond as the domain of the evil one who had tempted them.

These are the causes and the effects, but there is much more to understand in the mechanics of how these causes produced these effects.

It is the case that things of a spiritual nature are usually understood only in very abstract ways.

It is strange, perhaps to consider that there is not truly any separation between the physics of material existence and the mechanics of a spiritual one.

It is reasonable, though, that One law governs all things, and no spiritual event occurs which does not also produce quantifiable physical effects in a creature, such as man, who is equal parts body and spirit.

There is an answer to how the human body became subject to death and how the body produced the effects of spiritual exile within itself as a result of sin.

There is an answer to how the earth and the properties which govern its habitable environment were altered to become adverse to survival.

I will attempt to provide an explanation for these things here.

Deep within the human brain, between its two hemispheres, is a tiny organ called the pineal gland. It’s shape resembles that of a small pine cone. Being only about the size of a grain of rice, it is nonetheless a very important part of the body’s endocrine system.

This gland, is actually an eye. It is a small eye lacking some of the component parts of the visual eyes, yet an eye just the same, having a rudimentary retina and the ability to perceive light, though not in the same visual sense as the outward eyes.

The Pineal gland produces the very vital substances, serotonin and melatonin as well as Dimethyltryptamine under specific conditions.

We must recall the account in Genesis which stated “Then the eyes of both of them were opened”.

Though it is normally understood in a very metaphorical sense, that their eyes were opened, meaning that they had become aware of things which before they were not, there is good evidence to suggest this verse is much more literal.

It has been believed in many diverse cultures throughout human history that the pineal gland, also termed the “third eye” is the physical location in the body where the spirit joins to it, and where the physical senses can receive stimuli from spiritual sources.

Some species of animals have external “third eyes”, called a parietal eye which have similar physical functions as the human pineal gland. T
This organ, as the pineal gland, regulates circadian rhythm and is photo-receptive, though it is so on a visual level which the pineal gland is not.

This organ is a little understood receptor of stimuli which does not fall into the categories of the usual physical senses as well. It aids in the detection of predatory threats, for example, using a method of sense which is not visual, auditory or tactile.

The monoamine neurotransmitter ‘serotonin’, which is produced by the pineal gland, has several functions, the most well known of which is that it is responsible for producing the sensation of peace and well being.

Regulation of the mechanism of digestive tract movement is also a function of serotonin. Memory, the capacity to learn, sense of mood and appetite are all effected by serotonin levels.

When there is a deficit of serotonin, a person can, as a result, feel depressed, have digestive impairment and show an inability to comprehend and retain information.

Comparing this to the effects of sin in an individual’s life and what that results in as extension of their conscience look similar.

Guilt results in a loss of peace, a lack of appetite, physical feelings of illness in the “gut”, distraction and often times a subconscious effort to suppress the memory of having done wrong.

Drugs we refer to as “psychedelic” are understood as being drugs which open channels of awareness which are not normally active.

Psilocybin, LSD and mescaline are agonists for serotonin receptors – that is they are substances which are suited to binding at specific receptors, and mimic the action of the natural process which serotonin provides.

It is no secret that those who use substances such as these do so in order to have experiences which are “spiritual” in nature.

Activating the brain in a way that massive amounts of serotonin might creates an effect on the brain that puts it in closer connection with spiritual stimuli.

Certain so-called antidepressant drugs of the Serotonin re-uptake inhibitor class (SRI’s) are supposedly designed to prevent the re-uptake of serotonin out of the brain by the natural physical process and thus allow the substance to remain in the brain longer. This is claimed to produce the effect of fighting off depression, causing a sense of peace instead.

The danger of using these drugs is that after a time of use, the serotonin levels re-uptake at a greater pace instead, forcing the patient to switch medications until they have run out options – at which point the natural function of the pineal gland has been so reduced that the end result is much worse than the beginning.

Melatonin, the second major substance produced by the pineal gland is a most interesting one.This chemical controls the circadian rhythm of the body, it regulates the daily “time cycles”. It also functions as the most powerful antioxidant in nature, protecting nuclear and mitochondrial DNA from damage.

Melatonin is secreted by the pineal gland in darkness and is often called the “hormone of darkness”.

Blue spectrum light is responsible for inhibiting its production during the daylight hours, and then production peaks in the middle of the night.

Though many forms of antioxidants exist in nature which can be processed by the body and used through the consumption of foods which contain them, no other antioxidant has the perfect ability to halt damage to DNA which melatonin does.

Whereas other antioxidants go through what is called redox cycling, a process of reduction and oxidation repeatedly, melatonin terminates to an unusable form once oxidized. This makes it ideal because it cannot break down and conversely oxidize instead of reduce oxidation, as other antioxidants eventually can.

The deficit of Melatonin is the answer to aging. The curse of aging and death can be directly linked to the “eye’ (pineal gland) which was exposed to sin in the fall of man.

Without the continual degradation of DNA, it would forever repair itself, and the body would naturally produce those substances, like melatonin, which prevent any damage being done to it. There would conceivable be no injury which could not be repaired.

Melatonin aids the immune system as well, and so under perfect conditions no pathogen would have the ability to defeat the fully functioning immune system supported by ideal melatonin production.

This substance also tells time, it is responsible for the biological clock in living things. It records the passing of days, seasons and years in the physical body, and the body responds by continually breaking down in response to the passing of time.

It is a fact of great interest that melatonin is titled “the hormone of darkness” because it was in ignorance of sin and evil, in that state of innocence that mankind had all that they needed within their bodies to be eternally well.

It was not until a false light was shined in their “eyes” that they became subject to death.

Dimethyltryptamine, or DMT is a substance produced by the pineal gland only at moments of extreme spiritual interaction.

This chemical is produced at the moment of birth and the moment of death of a human being, as well as at points in time which are approaching death or an induced altered state of consciousness.

It is recognized medically as a “hallucinogen” It is often ingested in forms which are found in certain plants to obtain artificial states of spiritual connectedness.

People who have taken DMT report events of contact between themselves and extra-dimensional beings.

This is the hormone which opens the channel to the spiritual realm, which, if in its proper function, would produce the ability to perceive the presence of the Creator and commune with Him.

Artificial means to induce such effects in this fallen state will instead form a rift through which unclean spirits may make contact with human subjects.

The so-called “opening” of the eye which Satan had promised was merely opening the eye to the knowledge and the burden of sin.

The consequence was the closing of the intended function of the eye, a means by which the spiritual presence of YHWH and the physical existence of man were in peaceful communion with each other.

At birth, the pineal gland functions at the closest it will ever function to ideal in mortal life. As the human body matures toward puberty, the function of the pineal gland begins to drastically degrade by calcification, until near death it is nearly completely hardened.

It is then, very interesting to understand that the immediate reaction of Adam and Eve after they sinned against YHWH was to become aware of their sexuality.

With the sudden reduction of melatonin at puberty, the body reacts by becoming sexually mature. Adam and Eve had the innocence of children and remained naked without shame until this process was initiated in them after their fall.

What people should be aware of in this world, where there are powers that are not only interested in destroying their physical lives, but also their spiritual lives, is that many of the adulterating chemicals which are forced on the public are designed to destroy the pineal gland in particular.

Fluoride is one of the best examples of this. Sodium fluoride has the effect of rapidly calcifying the pineal gland, and by doing so, not only shortens life span and effects several major body functions, but also creates a spiritually blinding effect.

When scriptures speak of “hardened hearts”, we might reasonably understand that this is directly related to a literal hardening process of an organ designed to conduit spiritual stimuli into the mind.

Consider these Hebrew words:

peniyel – the face (presence) of El

Used in the verse here: And Ya’aqob called the name of the place Penuw’el, “For I have seen ‘Elohiym face to face and my life is preserved.”
– Genesis 32:30

leb – “heart” used to mean the center of something, figuratively for feelings or intellect, from:

lebab- to be enclosed

Remember that the pineal gland lays within the center or the “heart” of the brain and is enclosed by it.

And Yahuwah said to Mosheh, “When you go back to Mitsrayim, see that you do all those wonders before Par’oh that I have put in your hand. But I will harden his heart so that he will not let the people go.”
– Genesis 4:21

The curse of the Earth can also be directly linked to the function of the pineal gland.

The daily fluctuations of the geomagnetic field have been shown to have dramatic effects on pineal gland function and its ability to produce it’s vital substances.

The magnetosphere of earth serves a very important role in shielding the earth from charged particles of solar wind.

If the basic properties which govern the Earth’s magnetosphere had been altered, it would directly affect the function of the pineal gland in living creatures, and even effect what types of foods they were able to digest and process, as well as what types of food plants the Earth would most readily grow.

His design is an amazing one and the adventure of understanding it never truly ends.
