Sugar and Fibroids

Here's an article linking white sugar/flour/high glycemic load and fibroids.

"Scientists are not sure why diet might affect the growth of fibroids. One possibility, however, is the effect of foods on blood sugar. Higher-carbohydrate diets can lead to higher insulin levels, which are in turn linked to levels of other hormones thought to encourage fibroid growth."

Why arent scientists sure about diet affecting fibroids. Diet effects EVERYTHING. But the mainstream may not want ppl to know that.

In any case, I wanted this article just to emphasize that white sugar/white flour plays a big role in fibroid growth.

And it's not only diet, but as Dr. Northrup points out in her book, Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom, fibroids may also be linked to emotional frustration in one's life.

To my absolute glee, this actually fits with the ideas in Chinese Medicine. Writes Beinfeld and Korngold that "when powerful emotions are squeezed down and held back, qi (a person's energy) becomes congested. When this occurs over a long period of time, blood begins to congeal forming lumps and masses."


more on this later....

G-d bless!

Blessed are You....

Blessed are You, G-d, King of the universe, Who fashioned man with wisdom and created within him many openings and cavities. It is obvious and known before Your Throne of Glory that if but one of them were to be ruptured or but one of them were to be blocked, it would be impossible to survive and to stand before You.
Blessed are You, G-d, who heals all flesh and acts wondrously.

G-d bless!!!

My Sunset Chats

G-d is here.
I am seeking Him out!
and finding Him in everything that happens in my day.

Like a parent to a child, He is constantly sending us guidance, advice, and comfort.
We have to believe that there are messages for us to receive.
And surely, we can send our own messages to Him.

Better than an email.
Faster than an SMS.

Through prayer.
In our own words.

Talk about everything and anything that you are going through.
G-d is seeking you out as well.
Seeking a relationship with you.
"Talk to Me!"

What are you hoping for?
What are you thankful for?
Why are you angry?
What doesn't seem right?

Sigh. Groan. Move!!

Give thanks for the good we have in our lives.
Hashem is constantly looking to give us good.
His good.

"Even if you can't open your mouth at all, just the fact that you stand there putting your hope in G0d, lifting your eyes upwards and forcing yourself to speak and even if you say no more than a single word the entire time-all this endures forever... (Likutey Moharan II)
