Cooking with Microwave Ovens – Turns good food to bad

In the study of biochemistry we look at the shape of proteins and how this shape or confirmation affects its nature, purpose.

When we change the shape of a protein we call this de-naturing. A lot of food preservation and cooking results in the de-naturing of proteins, a very visible example is a poached or fried egg, the heat causes changes in the egg protein albumen and egg white turns from a translucent colour to white.

Microwaves work by creating a powerful resonance field created by a device called a magnetron, that excites the water molecules present in most food. The frequency of the wave is matched to water and the molecules of water begin to vibrate wildly, causing friction/heat.

Microwave cooking causes extreme and sudden heat changes, unlike gradual radiating heat from conventional heating.  This rapid heat change is the reason why microwaved food cooks quicker but also accounts for an increased de-naturing of proteins within the food.

Hence why the food taste substantially different. The protein shapes have been so radically altered the food tastes different and it’s texture is also altered significantly.

Microwaves are marketed as being safe to use and eat from, we believe that as the food molecules are so radically altered, the body and microbiome can’t lock onto to proteins and food molecules altered by the microwave cooking process. Many of the more complex molecular processes in the body, use a lock and key mechanism to recognise each other. When the food is so altered, this will not happen. The food does not properly digest and why some people report that microwaved food sits in their digestive system and doesn’t seem to move.

It wouldn’t be fair to levy a charge on the microwave oven that it and it alone is a food damaging form of cooking.  In truth all cooking methods de-nature proteins, however we believe that the microwave causes more de-naturing.  When you take this to its natural conclusion, perhaps advocates of eating raw foods are bang on the nail.

Microwaves have been shown to change even the structure of water on it’s own, to the point that plants fed with microwaved water, wither and die.  In the control of this experiment, water was heated by conventional means to the same temperature as the microwaved water. Both samples were cooled before being fed to the plants.

Furthermore we are told that microwave ovens do not allow microwave radiation to escape from within the oven.  Place your mobile/cell into the oven, ring it.  It will ring.  Ok you might say, that proves nothing, signals are able to enter the microwave, that’s what I thought at first, then you realise the cell/mobile is communicating with the cell tower, in order for the phone to ring it must be connected to the cell tower.  That means the phone is emitting microwaves from within the oven and these signals are powerful enough to reach the tower many miles away from within the oven.

Throw out your microwave and when you eat out insist that your food is not microwaved.

Artificial Sweetners and the Effect on the Microbiome

You might have noticed that a good many of the posts we share, relate to the gut, microbiota, probiotics and natural antiobiotics.  This is because we believe that a major factor in good health starts with looking after the health of the community of good bacteria and yeast, collectively referred to as microbiome.

In cases of a yeast or bacterial overgrowth, we have used Silver Colloidal Water and ozonated water to as natural antibiotics to kill off an overgrowth of bad microbiota and complimenting this treatment with the use of probiotics to replenish the microbiome with health-friendly ones.  If you haven’t already introduced silver colloidal water into your home, you definitely consider it.  We make silver colloidal/ionic generators from a tried and tested design that we use ourselves.  Visit our shop for more information our inform yourself about the benefits of this wonderful natural antibiotic by reading the following report compiled by Zoe Adams.  Colloidal Silver Report

We don’t keep a stock of ozonators but we do have them available to order for around 30Euro.  We ship worldwide.  If you are interested email us at info@comhceol.com or visit our shop where we will be adding the product specs for backorder.

The microbiome plays a pivotal role in our health and well-being, and many conditions that are related to the gut, however far removed they may be, as the evidence plays out may definitely have their origins in the gut.  Conditions such as type II diabetes, asthma, eczema, chrohns, IBS, diverticulitis, dermatitis, brain fog, and rheumatoid arthritis to name but a few.

We often see people drinking sugar-free sodas/softdrinks, in our minds when we see fat-free or sugar free, we begin to question, well how is it removed and what is it replaced with and more often than not the methods and alternatives are not good for our health.  Secondly aluminium is not a metal that should be used anywhere in relation to food and drink and many of this softdrinks/sodas are in cans.  Aluminium has had a long standing relationship with neurological conditions such as alzheimers.

Antibiotics and their dangers

Today the over-prescription of antibiotics is one of the single most detrimental effects to our long-term health. This is because in most cases the causative pathogen (disease causing microbe) is seldom cultured and identified. Broad spectrum antibiotics are prescribed to indiscriminately kill all, this includes many of the good bacteria and yeasts beneficial to our health.

I believe that broad spectrum antibiotics should be only given in a life or death situation and doctors/teachers should have more training in food choices that support a healthy body. Foods that alkalise the body, contain less/no processed sugars and free from chemical preservatives and an emphasis on preventative medicine by encouraging eating pro and pre biotic foods.

The role doctors, teachers and government play in parenting our children is huge and not to be underestimated, can we always trust that the parenting they give will always be impartial, I think not.

Big pharmaceuticals have a stranglehold on humanities life and death and seek to create customers not cures type attitude. Many professions are unwittingly aiding and abetting these corporates.


 

Over a lifetime we accumulate a plethora of bacteria that add to our immunity, they are a legacy from the birth canal and breast milk and our environment.

Successive prescriptions of antibiotics kill off more and more colonies of good microbiota in the gut and this in turn weakens our immunity to disease.  It’s only really in the last 20 years that the relationship between our gut flora and fauna and our health has been more truly understood and we are still learning about the pivotal role they play in our well-being, not just for immunity against disease, but the food choices that we make, our moods, energy levels, longevity and contribution they play in our consciousness.

There are so many factors today to bring to mind, that it must be difficult for someone new to health awareness to juggle when it comes to well-being. There is organic vs commercially grown, additives, bad sugars v’s good sugars, gmo, chemtrails, mass medication (fluoridation), cholesterol and it’s myths, cookware, chlorination of our drinking water (killing our good microbiota), electro-magnetic radiation, food additives and preservatives and I’m sure there are many more.

We are being naive if we believe that corporations always act with conscience and for the betterment of humanity. They are soulless, and with no conscience, non-living entities, who highest purpose is to survive economically and measure the health of corporate well-being, based on the financial figures such as gross and net profit and turnover. Their basic operating instructions and nature of the business are filed as a memorandum and articles of association. Today more and more, performance related pay is an aspect of daily work life, it use to be the preserve of private enterprise but it has made it’s way into public sector corporates. So the health of the nation is and will be for now, the bottom line, the profitability of the institution. Unless we decide to take responsibility and take ownership of our our immediate reality.

A few buzz phrases in the consciousness community is as within, so without and resistance leads to persistence. It is drummed into us at an early age that we are individuals, we are, but we are collective, and our lives and choices, impact others around us and the global community. Our biggest power does not lie with the ballot box, todays society votes by consumer choices. If we truly want to change the without to mirror the within, stop fighting and giving away your energy, start living, being happy and making good choices in food, clothing etc. Products that repairable, engineered to last, sustainable, buy local and avoid buying from war-mongering nations.

The tip is to start something every month, that raises your awareness, changes your lifestyle for the better, breaks the dependency of corporate and governmental bodies. Bit by bit you will get there. Another good tip is keep a book, with recipes and notes explaining key ideas and terms. The loss of the mulch-generational home has been the biggest significant factor in the dissolution of our society, heritage, an wealth of knowledge and experience passing from generation to generation. Someone once said united we stand, divided we fall and this is so true. Keep this book and pass the knowledge and experience you gain to your children.

Finally to target bad microbiota, research anti-inflammatory and alkalising foods food and drinks, bolster your weakened immune system with silver water, which incidentally has been shown to have an alkalising effect, does not indiscriminately kill, it mostly targets bad bacteria, because of the difference in cell membrane polarity.

Wifi and it’s Dangers

Wi-Fi Signals Linked to Cancer, Infertility, Heart Problems and 7 More Immediate Warning Signs

Wi-Fi Signals Linked to Cancer, Infertility, Heart Problems and 7 More Immediate Warning Signs

WiFi is convenient but many have raised doubts concerning the safety of unseen forces that permeate everything around us. Since the introduction of Wi-Fi in 1997, researchers have performed dozens of studies to explore the subject. The results are clear and shocking — Wifi can negatively affect overall health and brain health, especially in children.

Perhaps most shocking is that this information is not new or even that controversial. In fact, in 2008 the well-renowned publication Scientific American ran a piece called “Mind Control by Cell Phone” which explained the danger Wi-Fi has on the human brain. Let’s further explore the potential dangers of Wi-Fi with these 10 facts.

1. Contributes to the Development of Insomnia
Have you ever felt more awake after using Wi-Fi or even struggled to sleep through the night? Reports of these phenomena have been frequent and even prompted a study in 2007 that evaluated low-frequency modulation from cell phones and its impact on sleep. Participants were exposed to the electromagnetic signals from real phones, or no signal from fake phones. Those exposed to the electromagnetic radiation had a significantly more difficult time falling asleep and changes in brainwave patterns were observed.
It’s been suggested that sleeping near a phone, in a home with Wi-Fi, or in an apartment building with many Wi-Fi signals can create chronic sleep problems as the constant bombardment of Wi-Fi pollution interferes with falling asleep and sleep patterns. For many, sleep deprivation is just the start for larger problems. The development of depression and hypertension have also been linked to inadequate sleep.

2. Damaging to Childhood Development
Exposure to non-thermal radio frequency radiation from Wi-Fi and cellular phones can disrupt normal cellular development, especially fetal development. A 2004 animal study linked exposure to delayed kidney development.  These findings were supported by a 2009 Austrian study. In fact, the disruption of protein synthesis is so severe that authors specifically noted, “this cell property is especially pronounced in growing tissues, that is, in children and youth. Consequently, these population groups would be more susceptible than average to the described effects.” In short, bathing the developmentally young in Wi-Fi increases their risk of developmental issues.

3. Affects Cell Growth
When a group of Danish ninth graders experienced difficulty concentrating after sleeping with their cell phones by their head, they performed an experiment to test the effect of wireless Wi-Fi routers on garden cress. One set of plants was grown in a room free of wireless radiation; the other group grown next to two routers that released the same amount of radiation as a cell phone. The results? The plants nearest the radiation didn’t grow.

4. Derails Brain Function
Just as the Danish high schoolers noticed problems with concentration, scientists have begun to look at the impact of 4G radiation on brain function. Using MRI technology, research performed just last year found that persons exposed to 4G radiation had several areas of reduced brain activity.

5. Reduces Brain Activity in Females
A group of 30 healthy volunteers, 15 men and 15 women, were given a simple memory test. First, the entire group was tested without any exposure to Wi-Fi radiation — no problem. Then, they were exposed to 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi from a wireless access point for about 45 minutes. During that portion of the testing, brain activity was measured and the women had a noticeable change in brain activity and energy levels. Sorry ladies! But guys, don’t get too comfortable…

6. Neutralizes Sperm
…Because we’ve known for a long time that the heat generated by laptops kills sperm. Well, now it turns out that heat isn’t the only threat to a man’s virility. Research has found exposure to Wi-Fi frequencies reduce sperm movement and cause DNA fragmentation. Both human and animal testing has confirmed that exposure negatively affects sperm.

7. May Impact Fertility
And, it’s not just sperm. The results of an animal study suggest that some wireless frequencies may prevent egg implantation. During the study, mice exposed 2 hours a day for 45 days had significantly increased oxidative stress levels. The cellular damage and impact on DNA structure from exposure suggests a strong possibility of abnormal pregnancy or failure of the egg to implant. The Karolinska Institute in Sweden released a warning in 2011, stating:

“Pregnant women are cautioned to avoid using wireless devices themselves and distance themselves from other users,”
“Current US [and Canada]…standards for radio frequency and microwave radiation from wireless technology are entirely inadequate,” and
“Safety standards also ignore the developing fetus…”

8. Provokes Cardiac Stress
If you think your heart races when surrounded by wireless networks or 3G or LTE cell phones, it may not be in your head. A study involving 69 subjects reported that many of them experienced a real physical response to electromagnetic frequencies. Exactly what was the physical response? Increased heart rate — similar to the heart rate of an individual under stress.

9. Linked to Cancer?
This is extremely controversial but we can’t ignore that plenty of animal models indicate that exposure to electromagnetic radiation increases the risk of tumor development. While human studies are rare, reports and case studies abound. One such case involves a young 21-year-old woman who developed breast cancer. What makes this case unique was that her family did not have a predisposition to breast cancer… and she developed the tumor right on the spot she carried her cell phone in her bra.

10. You Can Protect Yourself
Although mainstream outlets may ignore the proven dangers, especially in the US and Canada, researchers have identified several methods that can offer a level of defense. First off, reduced melatonin seems to correspond with exposure. Thus, increasing melatonin through supplementation may help offset some of the effects. In animal tests, L-Carnitine provides antioxidant support for nutrients negatively affected by 2.4 GHz radiation

Limiting Exposure and Staying Healthy

Although melatonin and L-Carnitine offer nutritional defense, they don’t block exposure. And that’s very hard to accomplish anyway. Look at coverage maps from cell phone companies, or notice how many Wi-Fi networks your smart phone prompts for you to join. We’re surrounded and bombarded by electromagnetic radiation. Blocking exposure is difficult but there are a few small steps you can take. For one, do not keep cell phones, laptops, and tablets close to your body. And if it’s not being used, shut them off (your wireless router too). There are also a number of devices available to counteract electromagnetic frequencies. Check out these ways to protect yourself from laptop radiation and cell phone radiation, too.

Here is some useful tips to remove/reduce your exposure to these dangerous wireless signals from Comhceol

  • Stop using the microwave
  • Put the mobile phones on speaker and hold them as far away from your body as you can.
  • Put them in flight mode or off when you sleep.
  • A stop gap solution, put your wireless router on a timer and have it switched off whilst you sleep.
  • A permanent solution is to have a wired network installed in your home/business. This uses the buildings internal wiring system to send the internet around your home/business. It doesn’t require any wiring and involves the programming and plugging in of adapters to send and receive the broadband signal and disabling wifi on your home router. Wireless can be switched off and on at will and can be used to completely eradicate or reduce wifi exposure from inside your home. They are called powerline adapters.
  • Don’t consent to the installation of smart metering in your home. Form or contact a local group to prevent the installation of these meters in your community.
  • Don’t be tempted to upgrade to 3G or 4G mobile phones, say no.
  • Switch off Sat Navs when not in use.
  • Disable data and bluetooth on your phone, again when not in use.
  • Switch off your in car handsfree bluetooth device in your car. If you don’t use one, ensure your car stereo (many new sets have bluetooth built in) is switched off.
    Use a usb wired headset for Skype/VOIP calls.
  • Switch your cordless phones and base unit off and consider installing a wired phone.
  • Many wireless IP cameras can be switched to wired and plugged into a socket as described earlier, even if your don’t have ethernet cabling to the camera.
  • Switch off Sure Signal altogether if possible or on timer to switch off as your sleep, these devices use the internet to route all your Vodafone calls and texts through the internet and emit a 3G signal, effectively switching on a 3G mast in your home.

If your not convinced that microwave radiation is a danger to your health, sit beside your wireless router for an hour, observe and see do you feel different. Go to a telecommunications tower and see do you observe any birds roosting on the transmitter. Do you feel any noticeable differences in your sense of well-being from close proximity to the transmitter.

Colloidal Silver

Colloidal/ionic silver liquid is a powerful mineral, antibiotic / antiseptic. It is a safe and gentle way to boost your immune system. It is a powerful detoxifier and taken on a regular basis it strengthens ones resistance to infection and helps to maintain well-being. As an alkalising mineral it helps balance the body’s acid/alkaline levels.

Colloidal/ionic silver consists of ionic and microscopic, electrically charged particles of pure silver suspended in water. It is well known in orthodox and complementary fields of medicine. It’s uses have been well researched and documented, it was widely and successfully used before the discovery of penicillin.

In an age were antibiotics are becoming less and less effective, people need to have some means to protect themselves against infection.  Despite billions of years, few if any pathogens have developed a resistance to silver.  Historically silver has been used by people for thousands of years.

It is very easy to prepare pure silver solution at home for yourself and family. All you need is a CS Generator and some water. The water should be either distilled or you can use Purified water (sold by pharmacies for clinical use).

First hand knowledge of using Silver Water have proven its  benefits to us.  We were introduced to it several years ago and we have used it for conjunctivitis in poultry and dogs, sore throats, colds. flu, rhinitis, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcers, burns, dermatitis and there are so many more conditions it is useful for.

There is an excellent report compiled by Zoe Adams on this topic and it is available to download here.

Colloidal Silver Report

We recently acquired Simplyblessings.co.uk and are delighted to be able to continue the good work John & Brenda Lett have done in promoting this empowering tool for wellness.  John an electrical engineer designed the SG6 Silver Generator to work off the mains and give a constant current to produce a homogeneous sized silver particle for effective use.

How to make Milk Kefir

How to make Milk Kefir

If you suffer from any inflammatory condition, such as asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, IBS etc then this could be part of the solution for you.  Milk Kefir like water contains a grain, which is just a term coined to describe the structure formed by the living organism within the kefir solution.  They are a perfectly balanced symbiotic organism, comprising of the natural yeasts and bacteria needed to maintain a healthy microbiota in your colon/gut.

However if you are lactose intolerant you may wish to look at Water Kefir. http://www.comhceol.com/how-to-make-water-kefir/

The yeast and bacteria works synergestically to digest the milk proteins and sugars to increase their numbers and the best news is, they are a renewable resource, in that once you have them and care for them, they will continue to help keep you healthy for years to come.

Ingredients & Equipment needed

1 Litre/Quart of Milk (Raw or Organic preferred)
1 Tbsp milk kefir grains
Plastic sieve or muslin cloth1 litre mason/swingtop jar

Place the milk kefir grains in a clean 1 litre jar, add the 1 litre of milk.

Tightly cover and set out at room temperature for 12 to 24 hours (in hot weather, it ferments
faster) but not in direct sun light.

Shake the jar a couple times during fermentation.

After shaking, release any CO2 gas buildup by opening the lid, then tighten the lid once again. (A tight lid produces
a lightly effervescent beverage. To eliminate effervescence, just rest the lid on the jar rather than tightly closing the lid.)

After it has successfully fermented, strain off the grains through a collander, sieve or muslin cloth and place once again into a clean jar and top up with milk to renew the process over again.  The kefir is ready when the grains coagulate at the top of the jar.

Kefir grains do not like metal, it is thought to have something to do with the particle charge of metals killing the kefir, so avoid using metal instruments or kitchenware.

Place the kefir into handy reusable jars like illustrated below and have a healthy threat to eat every day.

20160302_174142These are yogurt pots we re-use over and over again.

 

Ripened Kefir (optional)

Once you’ve strained out the kefir grains, it is recommend to ripen kefir at room temperature for a day or two prior to consuming it. Ripening kefir will eliminate some lactose from the beverage and increase some of the B
group vitamins. Folic acid, for example, increases by at least 116% in comparison to fresh milk or freshly strained kefir.

As the kefir ripens, the thick creamy kefir floats above the watery whey. Shake or stir to blend the ingredients. Or, separate and use the thickened kefir as sour cream and the whey in baking, for drinking or in other fermented foods. Once it has ripened, refrigerate it.

*Shaking the fermenting kefir prevents the formation of yeasts and acetobacter colonies from forming on the surface. If colonies form they will appear as a light-brown wavy film. Skim this off, discard the film and use the kefir. Should you ever loose a batch of kefir (or your grains) to rampant overgrowth, your nose and taste buds will unerringly inform you to toss it.

Special thanks to Brenda Lett for the repost and wonderful gift of kefir and the source Rebecca Wood.  Bright Blessings.
