A Prayer for Daily Savings Time

I know this is so last Monday, but I just saw this video and it is really funny, plus a really GREAT prayer, I have to share.

“I miss my hour! … Hour, you will not get the best of us! … Stupidity I send you back down, in the Name of Jesus!”

Food and Mood

Last November, I added ferments to my diet in a big way because I heard it could help my chronic pain. I did not know at the time that ferments are also associated with elevated mood, but I have noticed in myself that I feel more “up” without having to work at it so hard.  This graphic shows the interactive nature of the gut and brain. Since eating ferments heals the gut, it is easy to see why it would also improve mood and other brain functions.

Gut and CNS function

This article summarizes five decades of study into the gut’s “brain” — known technically as the enteric nervous system (ENS). The gut brain manufactures more than 30 neurotransmitters, including serotonin, that are identical to those in the brain. Healing a dysfunctional gut has been shown to relieve major depression and even autism.

This article discusses one woman’s experience with severe anxiety that resulted from a common genetic mutation. This mutation, which affects close to one in five people, causes a shortage in B-vitamins which, in turn, can produce a huge range of problems from mood disorders, multiple miscarriages, strokes, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and many other illnesses. The good news is that the potential treatment — a B-vitamin called folinic acid — is cheap, relatively easy to find and free of side-effects. Fermented foods are particularly rich in B vitamins.

Fermenting food not only preserves the nutrients in food, but also makes them more easily digestible. For example, many people cannot digest the lactose (milk sugar) in milk, but can digest fermented milk (kefir), because the fermentation process turns the lactose into lactic acid. Fermentation also creates new nutrients, particularly B vitamins, including folic acid, riboflavin, niacin, thiamin, and biotin (but not B-12 which is only found in animal products). Some ferments have been shown to function as antioxidants, scavenging cancer precursors known as “free radicals” from the cells of your body, and to help remove toxins from the body.  Lactobacilli create omega-3 fatty acids, essential for cell membrane and immune system function. Some foods (like cassava) must be fermented before they are safe to consume, because the fermenting process removes toxins (like cyanide).

FRIDAY (MOSTLY) FUN

The left are busily claiming the St. Louis County deputies got what they deserved because they’re all racist,or something. Liveshot Kerry is still whining about the non-existent climate change “crisis” and Barry and his brood sow continue to play television stars on a bizarre reality show. Take a break from the depressing stuff and check out some of these links. You’ll come away thinking,maybe you’re not as strange as you thought you were.
