3. INTERMITTENT FASTING

Let nature itself Restore, Rebuild & Rejuvenate your Body & Brain health!

Start fasting for 16 hours (after a high quality, high fat meal)

(for example after dinner at 6PM or 8 PM)

Goal: to Recover, to Recycle junk protein into new cells, to Rebuild & to rejuvenate

YOU MAY START YOUR FAST WITH A HEAVY METAL DETOX

Morning heavy metal Detox from brain & body

Bentonite Clay (First thing in the morning)

+

[op_liveeditor_element data-style=””][text_block style=”undefined” align=”left”]What & How:
1 tbsp Bentonite Clay mixed with 1 glass of water
Use plastic or Glass (NO metal tbsp!) to mix, because bentonite clay binds to metals

Why:
It removes heavy metals/ harmful chemicals and impurities from our body (environmental toxins).

  • mercury
  • lead
  • cadmium
  • arsenic

Simply put, clay has an electro negative charge, whilst impurities and toxins are electro positive. (removal from metals from food (Eating a lot of fish — especially larger species — is linked to higher levels of mercury in the body.), air or water pollution, as well as medicine, food containers with improper coating, industrial exposure, or lead-based paint.)
It removes harmful bacteria from our body

Tips: Clay Face Mask:
Take about 1 (plastic or glass) teaspoon of the bentonite clay powder and about 1 teaspoon of water or apple cider vinegar and put it in or (plastic or glass) bowl or cup. Mix the the two ingredients well, until it forms a paste consistency.
Apply the bentonite clay mask to your face.
Leave the mask on for about 20 minutes. Rinse off the mask, using just water.
Put some good oil to remoisturize the skin after the mask (e.g. almond oil)

When:
First thing Each morning on empty stomach
1 hour before or after eating (because it draws things out of our body)
2 hours before or after medication (because it draws things out of our body)

Repair your skin & gut lining with the ‘Bone Broth- combination’

Bone Broth (Grass fed, preferably homemade)

+

[op_liveeditor_element data-style=””][text_block style=”undefined” align=”left”]What & How:

1 cup of bone broth (grass fed, preferably home made) mixed with Celtic sea salt and freshly squeezed lemon or key lime.

How to make homemade bone broth:

Making bone broth is very simple.

There are many recipes online, but most people don’t even use a recipe.

All you really need is a large pot, water, vinegar and bones.

To get you started here is an easy recipe you can follow:

Ingredients

  • 1 gallon (4 liters) of water
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml)apple cider vinegar
  • 2–4 pounds (about 1–2 kg) of animal bones
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Place all ingredients in a large pot or slow cooker.
  2. Bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 12–24 hours. The longer it cooks, the better it will taste and more nutritious it will be.
  4. Allow the broth to cool. Strain it into a large container and discard the solids.

In order to make the most nutritious broth, it is best to use a variety of bones — marrow bones, oxtail, knuckles and feet. You can even mix and match bones in the same batch.

Adding vinegar is important because it helps pull all of the valuable nutrients out of the bones and into the water, which is ultimately what you will be consuming.

You can also add vegetables, herb or spices to your broth to enhance the flavor.

Common additions include garlic, onion, celery, carrot, parsley and thyme. These can be added right away in step one.

Why:
Bone broth is is fabulous for healing intestinal permeability.

Bone broth contains collagen, which nourishes the intestinallining and reduces inflammation. Plus, it’s easy for a damaged gutto digest and reap the benefits of its protein and minerals.
Collagen synthesis becomes possible in combination with salt and vitamin C (from freshly squeezed key lime or lemon)

The collagen is what our hair, skin and nails are made of too, so bone broth will definitely will help you with anti-ageing too.

The nutrient content of bone broth depends on the ingredients and their quality:

  • Bone: The bone itself yields minerals like calcium and phosphorus. Sodium, magnesium, potassium, sulfur and silicon are also present.
  • Marrow: Bone marrow gives you vitamin A, Vitamin K2, Omega-3s, omega-6s and minerals like iron, zinc, selenium, boron and manganese. Marrow from beef and lamb also contains: CLA
  • Connective tissue:This tissue provides glucosamine and chondroitin, which are popular dietary supplements for arthritis and joint pain.

Additionally, bones, marrow and connective tissue are all largely made up of collagen, which turns into gelatin when cooked.

Gelatin has a unique profile of amino acids, and is particularly high in glycine.

Collagen is one of the major building blocks of bones, skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Collagen is also found in many other body parts, including blood vessels, corneas and teeth.

Animal products such as bone broth, gelatin, chicken skin and pork skin are very high in collagen.

You can help your body preserve and protect collagen by avoiding behaviors that damage it. These include eating excessive amounts of sugar, smoking and getting sunburned.

 Collagen is the major component of connective tissues that make up several body parts, including tendons, ligaments, skin and muscles

Collagen has many important functions, including providing your skin with structure and strengthening your bones

 Consuming collagen may have a variety of health benefits, from relieving joint pain to improving skin health

 The effect of consuming collagen on skin

[op_liveeditor_element data-style=””][text_block style=”undefined” align=”left”]What & How:

1 tbsp coconut oil or MCT-oil
mix with coffee

Why:

Coconut oil mixed with coffee boosts the production of ketones (fat for fuel)

Coconut oil is a healthy fat that may increase heart-protective HDL (good) cholesterol and reduce inflammation. MCT oil has been shown to promote weight loss and improve cholesterol

Coconut oil is effective in treating metabolic and inflammatory dysfunction cause by high-refined-carbohydrate diet

    (food sources: from fish, liver oil, butter)
  • Vitamin D
    (purpose: bone maintenance, immune system regulation)
    (Food sources: Found in animal-sourced foods, such as eggs and fish oil, and produced by your skin when exposed to sunlight.)

Mix one to two tablespoons (15–30 ml) with a glass of water and drink with a straw (to protect your teeth).

Why:
-It lowers inflammatory insulin spikes of the food you will consume
-It maximises nutrition absorption: it lower gastric pH: it restores our stomach acidity to absorb maximum nutrients (anti-aging)(stomach acidity diminishes when we get older)

-can stimulate secretion of pancreatic enzymes,
-can inhibit pathogens,
-acts as an energy source during GI-tract intermediary metabolism,
-improves mineral utilization by chelation process,
-enhances apparent total tract digestibility and improves growth performance.

Romaine Lettuce (Low Lectin Vegetable)

+

[op_liveeditor_element data-style=””][text_block style=”undefined” align=”left”]What & How:

Romaine Lettuce (Low Lectin Vegetable)
Make a salad

Why:

Although it’s low in fiber, it’s high in minerals, such as calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, and potassium. It’s naturally low in sodium. Plus, romaine lettuce is packed with vitamin C, vitamin K, and folate. It’s a good source of beta carotene, which converts into vitamin A in the body.

  • Vitamin A
    (purpose: vision, immune function, body growth, hair growth, reproductive function)
    (food sources: from fish, liver oil, butter)
  • Vitamin K
    (purpose: plays a key role in blood clotting. Without it, you would run the risk of bleeding to death.)
    (Food sources: parsley, kale, spinach, Brussels sprouts, lettuce (= low lectins vegetables), egg yolks, butter, liver)
  • Vitamin C helps support the immune system, is high in antioxidants and helps keep bones and teeth strong.
  • Calcium is necessary for the building and maintenance of bones, muscle function, nerve function, and blood clotting.
  • Vitamin K is also necessary for blood clotting. It works together with calcium to prevent bone mineral loss and fractures due to osteoporosis.
  • Vitamin A (from beta carotene) is a vital nutrient, necessary for health. An antioxidant, vitamin A supports cell growth and reproductive health. It also helps to maintain the heart, kidneys, and lungs. Vitamin A also supports the eyes.
  • Folate is a B vitamin, which supports cell division, the production of DNA, and genetic material. Folate deficiency in pregnant women can lead to complications with pregnancy, including premature birth, low birth weight, or the birth defect spina bifida
  • Phosphorus works with calcium to build strong bones and teeth.
  • Magnesium helps enzymes function and relaxes the muscles in your body. It works with calcium to build tissue.

Celtic Sea Salt

[op_liveeditor_element data-style=””][text_block style=”undefined” align=”left”]What & How:

Celtic Sea Salt

Use liberally! (to prevent keto flue, see below)

Why:

When you’re on a high fat, low carb diet, you’re eliminating most processed foods that contain high levels of sodium. Your body needs sodium to thrive. Stay hydrated, keep your energy up, and beat the Keto flu by using Real Salt liberally.

Since sodium chloride (salt) has several important functions in the body, it’s necessary to consume it from foods to maintain optimal health. When fat adapted we loose fats, together with its toxins and electrolytes (=salt, magnesium and potassium).

We have to replenish our electrolytes: including salt, while becoming fat adapted, to prevent the keto flu.

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Headache
  • Irritability
  • Weakness
  • Muscle cramps
  • Dizziness

When you’re on a high fat, low carb diet, you’re eliminating most processed foods that contain high levels of sodium. Your body needs sodium to thrive. Stay hydrated, keep your energy up, and beat the Keto flu by using Real Salt liberally.

Since sodium chloride (salt) has several important functions in the body, it’s necessary to consume it from foods to maintain optimal health. When fat adapted we loose fats, together with its toxins and electrolytes (=salt, magnesium and potassium).

We have to replenish our electrolytes: including salt, while becoming fat adapted, to prevent the keto flu.

Omega 3 balance: Cod Liver Oil or Krill Oil or Liver or Grass Fed Beef

+

[op_liveeditor_element data-style=””][text_block style=”undefined” align=”left”]What & How:

Keep your Omega 6 vs Omega 3 balance through adding omega 3

Add Omega 3 From:
-pure Cod liver oil
-Krill (has no heavy metal poisoning like omega 3 from fish oil)
-grass fed beef
-Beef liver

Why:

 

The Omega 3 vs Omega 6 ratio has been abused. The prevalence of vegetable oil and processed grains in Western diets has thrown the ratio way off, contributing to chronic inflammation, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, heart attack, and many of the other common health problems

To up your ratio, eat plenty low-mercury fatty fish like sockeye salmon, go for grass-fed butter and meat, swap omega 6 oils for those higher in omega 3s, and always check the ingredients when you buy packaged food.

Omega 3s are great for your cells. They are an integral part of cells membranes throughout the entire body and affect the cell receptors in these membranes.

Omega 3s also provide a launchpad for making hormones that regulate blood, heart, and genetic function.

Studies show that omega 3s help prevent heart disease and stroke, may help control lupus, eczema, and rheumatoid arthritis, and may protect against cancer

For most people, an omega 6 to omega 3 ratio of 4:1 is ideal– that’s 4 omega 6s for every 1 omega 3 [17]. Anti-aging experts suggest going even further, maintaining a 1:1 ratio or higher in favor of omega 3s. The average American eats a ratio of anywhere from 12:1 to 25:1 omega 6 to omega 3

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Mix with salad

Why:

To transform to fat for fuel

Olive oil is a high-fat low-carb food

Olive oil Is Incredibly Nutritious:

  • Saturated fat: 14%
  • Monounsaturated fat: 73% (mostly oleic acid)
  • Vitamin E: 13% of the Daily Value (DV)
  • Vitamin K: 7% of the DV

Olive Oil Oleic acid, has been associated with reduced inflammation and shown to have beneficial effects on genes linked to cancer

Olive Oil consumption is associated with better diet quality and nutrient intake, and lower metabolic syndrome risk

We need fat to be able to absorb our four fat-soluble vitamins in the human diet:

  • Vitamin A
    (purpose: vision, immune function, body growth, hair growth, reproductive function)
    (food sources: from fish, liver oil, butter)
  • Vitamin D
    (purpose: bone maintenance, immune system regulation)
    (Food sources: Found in animal-sourced foods, such as eggs and fish oil, and produced by your skin when exposed to sunlight.)
  • Vitamin E
    (Purpose: a powerful antioxidant, vitamin E protects your cells against premature ageing and damage by free radicals)
    (Food sources: avocados, peanut butter, margarine, fatty fish and fish liver oil.)
  • Vitamin K
    (purpose: plays a key role in blood clotting. Without it, you would run the risk of bleeding to death.)
    (Food sources: parsley, kale, spinach, Brussels sprouts, lettuce (= low lectins vegetables), egg yolks, butter, liver)

Romaine Lettuce (Low Lectin Vegetable)

+

[op_liveeditor_element data-style=””][text_block style=”undefined” align=”left”]What & How:

Romaine Lettuce (Low Lectin Vegetable)
Make a salad

Why:

Although it’s low in fiber, it’s high in minerals, such as calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, and potassium. It’s naturally low in sodium. Plus, romaine lettuce is packed with vitamin C, vitamin K, and folate. It’s a good source of beta carotene, which converts into vitamin A in the body.

  • Vitamin A
    (purpose: vision, immune function, body growth, hair growth, reproductive function)
    (food sources: from fish, liver oil, butter)
  • Vitamin K
    (purpose: plays a key role in blood clotting. Without it, you would run the risk of bleeding to death.)
    (Food sources: parsley, kale, spinach, Brussels sprouts, lettuce (= low lectins vegetables), egg yolks, butter, liver)
  • Vitamin C helps support the immune system, is high in antioxidants and helps keep bones and teeth strong.
  • Calcium is necessary for the building and maintenance of bones, muscle function, nerve function, and blood clotting.
  • Vitamin K is also necessary for blood clotting. It works together with calcium to prevent bone mineral loss and fractures due to osteoporosis.
  • Vitamin A (from beta carotene) is a vital nutrient, necessary for health. An antioxidant, vitamin A supports cell growth and reproductive health. It also helps to maintain the heart, kidneys, and lungs. Vitamin A also supports the eyes.
  • Folate is a B vitamin, which supports cell division, the production of DNA, and genetic material. Folate deficiency in pregnant women can lead to complications with pregnancy, including premature birth, low birth weight, or the birth defect spina bifida
  • Phosphorus works with calcium to build strong bones and teeth.
  • Magnesium helps enzymes function and relaxes the muscles in your body. It works with calcium to build tissue.
  • Potassium is an electrolyte that helps your heart beat regularly. It supports nerve function and helps your muscles contract normally. Potassium also helps your cells to move, and utilize, nutrients efficiently.

+90% Dark Chocolate

+

[op_liveeditor_element data-style=””][text_block style=”undefined” align=”left”]What

+ 90% dark chocolate

Why:

Dark chocolate is one of the best sources of antioxidants on the planet (anti-ageing)

It contains a decent amount of soluble fiber and is loaded with minerals.

A 100-gram bar of dark chocolate with +90% cocoa contains:

  • 11 grams of fiber
  • 67% of the RDI for iron
  • 58% of the RDI for magnesium
  • 89% of the RDI for copper
  • 98% of the RDI for manganese
  • It also has plenty of potassium, phosphorus, zinc and selenium

Of course, 100 grams (3.5 ounces) is a fairly large amount and not something you should be consuming daily. All these nutrients also come with 600 calories and low sugar.

For this reason, dark chocolate is best consumed in moderation.

The fatty acid profile of cocoa and dark chocolate is also excellent. The fats are mostly saturated and monounsaturated, with small amounts of polyunsaturated fat.
