Ready to Roll

August 13, 2007

We are set to go!  The car is packed and the house is two inches away from being clean.  Just a couple of touches.   We had great help from, and supper with Matthew and Lisa tonight.  Their help just made getting our belongings out of here so much easier.  All we need to do tomorrow is wash sheets and towels and pack up this computer and the phones.  I am expecting that we will set out somewhere around 10:00am.  I plan to miss the morning commuter traffic.

I did have a treatment today, and began IV Vitamin C treatments.  I know that there is some information in my email about this treatment.  When I find it I’ll post it.  There may have been some in the link about cancer and sugar.  That link is somewhere in the May posts I think. (in case anyone wants to have a look)

I’ll post something when I can.

    Wolf beries ARE Goji berries!!

    Goji berries, sometimes called Wolfberries, are perhaps the most nutritionally-rich fruit on the planet. Goji berries contain 18 kinds of amino acids (on par with bee pollen) and contain all 8 essential amino acids (such as isoleucine and tryptophan).

    Goji berries contain up to 21 trace minerals (the main ones being zinc, iron, copper, calcium, germanium, selenium, and phosphorus).

    Goji berries also contain vitamins B1, B2, B6, and vitamin E.

    Mature fruits contain about 11 mg of iron per 100 grams, beta-sisterol (an anti-inflammatory agent), linoleic acid (a fatty acid), sesquiterpenoids (cyperone, solavetivone), tetraterpenoids (zeaxanthin, physalin), and betaine (0.1%).

    Goji berries contain polysaccharides which fortify the immune system. A polysaccharide found in this fruit has been found to be an anti-aging secretagogue.

    Goji berries have been traditionally regarded as a longevity, strength-building, and potency food of the highest order. In several study groups with elderly people the berry was given once a day for 3 weeks, many beneficial results were experienced and 67% of the patients T cell transformation functions tripled and the activity of the patients white cell interleukin-2 doubled. In addition, the results showed that all the patients spirit and optimism increased significantly, appetite improved in 95% of the patients and 95% of the patients slept better.

    The famed Li Qing Yuen, who apparently lived to the age of 252 years (1678-1930), consumed Goji berries daily. The life of Li Qing Yuen is the most well-documented case of extreme longevity known.

    These Goji berries grow in protected valleys in million year old soil in wild and cultivated areas. The plants grow like bushes with vines that reach over 15 feet. The berries are never touched by hand as they will oxidize and turn black if touched while fresh. They are shaken onto mats, then dried in the shade.

    The Goji berry is a deep-red, dried fruit about the same size as a raisin. The Goji berry tastes somewhat like a cross between a cranberry and a cherry.

    A good daily intake of Goji berries is 10-30 grams (a small handful). Goji berries may be used as snacks or mixed with recipes or smoothies like other dried fruits.
