Detoxing for kids???

Standard

Who are these people?  By accident I saw a TV show last night where someone was promoting a ‘juice only’ diet.

Then this morning I see someone detoxing their children using only fruits and vegetables.. Like I asked.. Who are these people???

No one has the right to do this to children or promote this type of thing without medical/ nursing/ allied health supervision. Where is their knowledge of food? Do they realise the body needs all the other vitamins and minerals to survive? Are they aware there is a vitamin similar to vitamin B12 called ‘cyanocobalamin’ which contains ‘cobalt’  This is “Vital to life”

I don’ think you would find anyone in the health profession who would say detoxing ok…

The other complex B vitamins are necessary and without consuming them, the body is subject to poor muscle control, neural deficiencies, menstrual disturbances, deficiency of antibodies, less formation of blood cells, lack of K and Na regulation. 

Thiamine assists in the breakdown of carbs into glucose etc…  without this daily dose there will be problems with the nervous system, loss of appetite, irritability, reduced intestinal motility, heart irregularities, and beriberi.

I am only mentioning a few problems involved with a lack of B vits.. Don’t have the room here to name them all…

We have all heard about the benefits of folic acid haven’t we?  (Pregnancy etc..) A vital vitamin of the B complex. Deficiency causes poor growth, graying hair, diarrhea, and many more but which I won’t mention here because you probably won’t have heard of them and wouldn’t understand..

These important vitamins are all found in meat, dairy, nuts, seeds, grains, organ meats, leafy greens, and many more foods.. The list is big.. Did you know you can obtain vitamin B from wheatgerm? Yummy… I add it to our foods and it tastes great… 

It’s so imperative for the body to get a balance of the main foods. 

To put any child on a juice only diet is ‘Child abuse’  These children will be suffering from ‘Malnutrition’ and it is due to the ignorance of parents.  If adults do it then they will be suffering from malnutrition too but it is their own fault.. I have to ask why are these TV shows promoting these ridiculous bloody diets?  I know they think they are covering themselves by also having a dietitian give their view but that view is so quick it makes no difference. I should perhaps petition the Australian Medical Ass to stop the charlatans from doing harm.

At the moment I am assisting a mother who has a very young child who has decided he will not eat anything but fruit. He eats minimal carbs unless it is sweet and will not eat meat or meat products..  He has slipped under the radar and if I hadn’t been observing his pooh, I never would have realised.  His pooh was runny, lumpy with undigested pieces of food and sweet smelling. To my trained nose and eyes, this pooh came from the fruit only, passed through his gut very quickly without being masticated (chewed), no iron or other elements to give it a nice dark colour to indicate there is iron from Vit B complex and the pooh was very runny..

He had no intestinal noises to indicate he had anything like a tummy bug which his day care said he had.

I had to tell the mother his Pancreas is under stress from all the sugar and he will be verging on brain damage from lack of these ‘Vital to Life’ vitamins. I also had to say it is no one’s fault!  Not many people are aware of the need for specifics when it comes to food and why if they are not consumed there will be consequences.  My interventions are having an effect and for the good, but if by the end of this weekend this child is not improving he must be seen by a doctor as there could be absorption problems or other.  I am happy to say he has shown some improvement this morning after one and a half days.  But no child can live and thrive on fruit only..

So getting back to kids detoxing.. The body is constantly detoxing itself so there is no need to push this onto innocent children or anyone else.  They are just being denied important foods.

Three things to assist detoxing if you are so inclined..

1)  Cut out all processed foods.

2)  Cut out sugar

3) Cut out fast foods and eat all natural foods.

So there you have it in a nutshell..  I have a visitor and have to get this done quickly but I could not go on for one more hour knowing there are irresponsible people in the media and the uneducated public plugging such rubbish.

Sure I do have a ‘Juice Up’ in my book but I would NEVER tell anyone to just live on that..

I can’t believe it… $8,500 for a shoddy job…

Standard

Took young girl to the orthodontist today to get braces on her teeth which cost about $8,500.
Drove little grandson and his mum home after her work and then had a look at the braces.
They are so crooked, the wires look like a 3 year old glued them on. 3 of the braces are loose and falling off. Two braces are glued so far to the side of each tooth they will twist the tooth out of it’s socket..
The rest of them are glued so far down they are resting/sticking to the gum line.
Rang her friend who has braces and she emailed us a photo of her mouth with the braces. Hers are beautiful. Straight and dead center.

I’m so mad I could scream.. I was a bit surprised to see a very young girl doing the job and not the Orthodontist who we are paying, so they will be getting an earful from me tomorrow, after I show a certain person who has a great closeup camera…
The Orthodontist apparently came into the room after the first two braces were applied (the two top center ones) and mumbled something then he left her to finish the job. I had my little grandson with me and my mother so I decided to sit in the waiting room..Tomorrow I will be on the phone at 0900 and demand they all be removed and the Orthodontist apply them correctly. Or else! How do they have the cheek to charge so much and yet leave the job to a beginner? She’s probably not even out of Uni yet… Arghhhhh
Will let you know how it goes tomorrow…

Competition commences now.

Getting in touch with your inner self?????

Standard

I just read where someone has written a book for weight loss based on getting in touch with your inner self. Another load of hogwash. So now it is ok to blame ones problems on weight gain? I just blame ignorance and a lack of owning my book. Why try so desperately to find something to blame your problems on? Own up to having problems and sort them out but don’t blame your weight on problems. You are just over eating. That’s all!

I sigh each and every time I read something like this. Getting in touch with your inner self. Holy moly who has time for that? Even if it does work, how long can you be constantly thinking about yourself? Get over it and do it honestly.

If you’re overweight then it is because you have eaten food. Nothing else. You inadvertently became overweight then you became miserable and now you’re turning the tables and blaming your weight gain on your problems. Everyone has problems. My advice is to deal with those problems and don’t use them for your own failings. GET OVER IT!

Rocky the Kangaroo

Standard

I just saw a News Item about ‘Rocky The Australian Grey Kangaroo’ and how he was being used in a circus in Texas as a boxing opponenent for a clown. As much as I felt sorry for the Kangaroo being held captive by anyone, and pity for the nitwit who owns this poor animal, I must say something in regards to the way it was shown to the public.

I did not see anyone hit or kick the Kangaroo. It looked like a play fight to me. Just like I have with my little dogs and they absolutely love it. They get tough and growl and roll on the floor and they have a big smile on their faces. Now if that kangaroo was in fear of being injured it would have reared back on it’s tail and sliced that clown right down the middle with it’s two big toenails which are very long and quite strong. This is what Kangaroos do when threatened. In fact, that Kangaroo looked very well fed and I hope he is cared for. I really don’t know what an Australian animal is doing in a Texan Circus though.

We here in Australia take a very dim view of Animals being mistreated and the perpetrators end up in jail and or heavily fined and or not allowed to own any animals. Australians show animals a lot of respect and we are a very caring nation. Our laid back attitude has not changed so what was the point of the Media making such a misrepresented segment on this. Do they want us to hate Texans? Do they want to make an issue of this to hide the Racist problem THEY created here?

For crying out loud, I’m so sick of these ridiculous stories. Why don’t these Papps get a life and stop making stories look worse than they really are. Does the media just want to make headlines like the nitwit who took the footage? Oh I forgot. March is boring month for news so they have to make it up. HA!

Fatty Boombas

Standard

I saw the Actors Screen Guild Awards tonight and I was so shocked to see the majority of people present were fatty boombas! What on earth have people been doing to themselves? Do overweight people truly believe fat is the new way to be? Honestly, I think it is not! Media hype have caused so much trouble for people. First they all promote skinny models who have been photoshopped to look like someone else and people think they will be like them if they do ‘the diet’ being promoted. Then there is an uproar from people who have at last decided they don’t want to be compared with these skinny women and complain, so a single issue group will take up the fight and blame everyone else for it. So then the media put real looking un photoshopped women on their sites and in magazines and are now at risk of convincing fat people they are ok. Gee where does it all end? It won’t because no one will be satisfied. Are overweight people just being lazy? What are they thinking? I would surely love to know.
Oh and Sandra Bullock was just gorgeous. She is one of the most beautiful women on the planet. She loves animals and that makes her a saint in my book. Congratulations Sandra for winning the award. We love you. Why your career was on the back burner for so long makes me wonder. A very talented Actress and a great human being. I will be waiting for your next film with bated breath.
