n'Abend Ihr Liebchens :-)
alsoooo musste ja vorgestern einem Berna-dudl-sennhünndlein geschwind das Läbeli retten- er hatte entsetzliche Schmerzen, alle guckten zu... keiner tat was; das ist aber grad garrnix für mich und dann hab ich halt geschalten und gewalten und innert, trotz sonntäglicher Ruhe.... stand ein Tierarzt auf der Matte und hat diesem süssen Stinker geholfen..... und ich wette... dass diese Geschichte auch mit dem Trockenhufu zusammenhängt... clar ist dieses Hündle das ganze jahr im Zwinger.... er kriegt aber mehr oder
weniger seit jahr und Tag den selben Frass und ich sage Euch, auch zu wenig H2O...dazu.... und er war dann schlichtweg einfach mal fällig in Sachen *rasender Entzündung*... hey stellt Euch doch mal vor bitte, so ein Viecherl ist von Natur aus ein Carnivor...nigges mit Trockenglump.....ergo....da auch ...Augen auf....
passt nicht..... ok ich merke schon, einige von Euch haben es geschnallt.... wir creieren jetzt BTD für dogies und caties :-) .... na klar doch.....und übrigens auch hier konnte ich mit meinem Vegatester schon schaurig viel mit Tierhaaren rausfinden.... wow.... war sehr spannend... und wisst Ihr was- der blöde Tester hat sich nie getäuscht... toll ...gell ?? !
good evening all dearles :-)
hmmmm I was forced, made some 2 days to save a dog's life...all others were just looking around and doing nothing... and this was just nothing for me, because whithin 30 minutes, even on sundays a vet-
erinaire was there and helped the poorly crying creature out of his malheures; and all dearles... you may believe me or not... I am 1000000% convinced that this was also an intermezzo between this animal and
his dry-dog-food....he was obliged to eat since years..... I asked the vet. and he said... yup might be...we don't know exaclty now and yet..... :-) ..... wise reply ?! :-)
Even here I was able to have an eye with my Vegatester and this enables me to find out what really happened in other animals... and please think about.... this tester never is wrongggggg..... :-)
and I'll got it... just some of you were right... lets create the BTD for dogies and caties :-)
da bin ich wieder zwischen Türe und Angel.....
einige meiner *Terminalen* lassen sich Zeit... prima... auch gut... nur das Drum Herum geht mir saumässig auf den Geist... zum Teil ist's hier wirklich eine Frage der Verstanden werdens und eben... mal wieder... wir sprechen eben doch verschiedenen Sprachen, sogar in Teutonics...
aber ich bin kein Humanoide... der zuguckt wenn ein Mensch oder Tier leidet... und dann gibts da ein paar gaaanz leckere Kerlchens... diese schauen winfach weg... sie sind irgendwo angestellt... machen nix...schwätzen viel und lügen was das Zeug hält und glauben ihren Schund auch noch... Leute zum Kotzen... und da geht mir der Hut hoch!!!
Ansonsten nix Neues.. zur Zeit... meine *neue-alte* Wohnung liegt brach... in Ermanglung meiner Zeit...
na denn verschiebt's sich halt mal wieder ..auch guuut.Winterzeit-Schnee erneut... aber heute morgen ein tolles Bild mit Sonne-Wolken und einfach bezaubern gerade hier oben am Berg... toll mit Blick auf den Greiffensee...ich liebe diese Gegend hier.....
Hello all dearles-and good morning
just a *quicky* between door and angles.... :-)
some of my terminal peoples take more time to go... ok..agreed...but all the chi-chi with some familiar thingies or better said employees are soo upsetting me... because I cant' see watching somebody, equal if beast or humans - suffering- but must tell you... if sillyness would ache... there' must be several people here ...which would cry the whole day long... but loudly.... even very loudly.......!
After all- nothing nwe yet, my *old-new* flat didn't change until now because of my lacking time...
here wintertime and snow came back and this morning it was beautiful when driving home with clouds and a very sunny sky over the *lake of Greiffen(see)* hi-hi-hiiiii where I live... just beautiful... I love this
edge here very much....
Although the thermometer stated that it was 19 degrees, it sure had a bite to it.. Must be a high humidity day or something. We got another inch or so of snow today. The streets are exceptionally icy today. The snow was kind of a misty snow. The nighttime temperatures have been below zero this week and then warm up to about 20 degrees or so during the day. I don’t have the paper handy, but I believe we hit the 10 hours of daylight today!
I’ve been studying about EFT (Emotional Freedom Therapy or Techniques) recently and also learning more about some other related energy therapy issues. It’s been quite interesting and fascinating to witness first-hand some powerful insights and changes. My daughter’s head ache left and my sister-in-law’s sciatic nerve pain reduced drastically while I was on the phone with them. Fascinating!
Tonight’s dinner was really good and everybody enjoyed it. We had roasted turkey breast, sautéed spinach, rice, carrot-raisin salad, and a raspberry gelatin with lots of strawberries, banana, and 3 kinds of grapes.
The Olympics have been quite interesting to watch. I believe that we have two Alaskan medal holders this year so far. We had a total of 11 Alaskans participating. It’s fun to see someone we know (more from local tv than personally) doing their things in the Olympics. One guy’s father is my husband’s good friend. Another of the participants has a summer home on the Kenai River, too. It makes it more fun to watch when it is closer to home.
Take care. Till next time…
Well, I finally did it! I got LASIK on Thursday and lemme tell you, it is AWESOME! I was debating for a long time about whether this is a good idea in a naturopathic sense. I had a consult from another company about three years ago and in that time my left eye has changed tremendously. Well, when one of the chiropractors at my new job (within the clinic system) said, "If God were to have invented a surgery, this would be it!" that was enough convincing for me as someone who believes in keeping people as drug-free as possible is pro-LASIK as he had it done and loves it.
The way I see it, my vision will never be back to what it was 17 years ago when was not myopic. Before the surgery, my right eye was corrected w/ -4.5 and my left was about -6.5. It's very unpleasant wandering around the house trying to find your glasses but you are so blind you can't find them! Contacts were OK, in fact the CIBA Night and Day brand were the closest I ever came to actual lasik but they did not correct my slight astigmatism so they weren't fun for reading.
The surgery itself is a little freaky but they put you on 5 mg of diazepam ahead of time and I also did about fifteen minutes of pranayama breathing one of the exam rooms before it was my turn to have the procedure done. It still does not prepare you enough for all the crazy stuff that is about to happen as I began having heart palpitations in the middle of the suction and cutting part. Oh, but what a delight to go home and even as I had to put the antibiotic, steroid, and preservative-free lubricant drops in I was able to watch the entire women's free program on the Olympic ice. And the whole procedure maybe takes about 5-10 minutes each eye! It is phenomenal!
Oh, and the ultimate sweetness came when I went in yesterday for the post-op eye exam and was handed a form to give to the Driver's License station to have the Corrective Lenses restriction taken off! Oh, I never thought THAT day would come! And arriving at that bureaucratic cesspool to put my face up against the eye exam machine and reading off the letters perfectly. What a lovely moment in time!
In the world of Erika's perpetual quest to cook BTD A and O-friendly meals, I made a kick-ass lasagna for the first time last week. It was based on a pesto lasagna recipe in the Joy of Cooking. OK, if you don't have that book yet, ask for it for xmas, whatever, just get it. This is the bible of cooking.
I made my own additions and subtractions to this recipe as I saw fit. For instance, I used rice lasagna instead of wheat. This is the one pasta dish so far that really hasn't suffered due to deviation from the traditional semolina. I've had issues in the past with rice, spelt, quinoa pastas, etc. But this turned out fantastic. In fact, Grubster, who in his type O male stubbornness will not give up wheat, still has no clue I used rice pasta, haha.
I also used whole milk ricotta cheese as the filling and added a very strange fish to the dish called Skatewing. What the hell is that? I don't know but it shredded nicely when it was done cooking and mixed in with the filling quite nicely!
Oh, I could go on and on about this lasagna in braggard style but I guess I really take pride in knowing that it came out so well being my first time making it! Try it yourself and you will be impressed. Another deviation from the recipe: I did use premade pesto from the Wedge co-op here in the Twin Cities. They make a fantastic vegan version w/o the parmesian with walnuts instead of pine nuts and it is to die for! Only stipulation, it comes in those plastic food tubs that I'm sure are leaching pthalates like they are going out of style!
God, knowledge is a blessing and a curse. Ignorance is bliss for a while, but you can't help be conscious of not only whats inside and outside the box but what IS the box? Plastic food containers, with all their estrogenic properties, are a new focus for me as of late.
What else have I made lately? Well,
"I caught you a delicious bass."
I poached a fabulous Asian inspired sea bass about two weeks ago. The tamari made it incredibly salty but it was still a nice meal. Grubster loved it, too!
My gosh, I almost forgot to give an update on the Building Biology project! Ever since I've had it done, my migraines have decreased tremendously. If I forget to turn off the switch as I accidentally did when Grubster and I listened to a hypnosis CD in in the bedroom (which required the circuits turned on) and then drifted off into sleep, each time this occurred, the headaches have come back and I haven't slept as soundly. Building Biology really is a miracle and one of the best ways to deal with the setbacks of modern technology! When the switches are turned off all night long, I wake up and the migraine lets me know it's still has potential (my temple is tender to the touch), but does not manifest into a full blown throbbing agony.
I am a little concerned about my head though. The migraines almost always occur on the left side. My prescription on the left side of my head is poorer and changed so much in the last three years and I also have another strange pain at the back of my head. Couple this with the feeling of a strange calcification under my jaw or swollen glands, it would not surprise me if I have a huge tumor growing in my head. I spent hours upon days with the cell phone mostly on my left side for years before wising up and using a handsfree device. This was even worse when Grubster lived in Madison and we were trying to have a long-distance relationship. That thing was glued to my head more than it should have been. Oh, the dumb crap you do for love. Cell phones are truly the next cigarette. Mark my words.
Well, if this migraine crap continues, I'll be sure to have an MRI done by some physician who hopefully does not think I'm just a crazy hypochondriac. Better to be safe than sorry.
Carol the D.
hab Dich nicht erwähnt... natürlich auch Dir ganz lieben Dank für Deine Antwort in Sachen:in den Hades
Carol the D.
I'd like to apologize, I didn't mention that you also gave me the reply about the Hadestravellings :-)
thanks to you too
ansonsten zur Zeit nix Neues... bin grrrrausam am Malochen.......*Man(n) (Frau) muess sie näh wenn sie chömmet...gau :-) wooohoooo
at this time nothing new, I am working like crazy-----one should take em when possible... if not nothing to take for :-) wooohooo
We’ve had a fairly nice weather-wise week. The temperatures have been fairly mild with highs up to the mid 30’s and lows usually in the 20’s. It is beginning to drop down a bit, but nothing like it was a few weeks ago. The downside of the warmer weather is the snow has melted just enough that the Fur Rendezvous World Championship Dogsled Races for this weekend have been canceled. This is the third time in the past seven years that has happened. We had planned on driving to Anchorage this weekend to watch my husband’s cousin race his team. Guess we might just go up for a few hours instead. I still have a bag of Christmas gifts to deliver!
I made a nice pot roast dinner with lots of veggies for tonight. My crockpot gets a work out during the winter. It is so nice to be able to put whatever we are having for dinner in the crockpot and let is do its thing. We are almost always pleased with the results.
There’s not much else going on until early March when the Arctic Winter Games will be held. My husband and one of the twins are signed up to work security. The influx of people will make running my errands a bit more difficult, but it is only for one week (I hope) and then things should get back to normal.
Till next time…
When I read the latest thread on anger, I thought about the book, The Dance of Anger by Harriet Lerner. The most important part of the book is essentially the first page where the author says anger is a message that we are being hurt, that our rights are being violated, that our needs or wants are not being met.
Anger may tell us that we are not addressing an important emotional issue in our lives or anger may be a signal that we are doing more and giving more than we can comfortably do or give. It may also warn us that others are doing too much for us at the expense or our own competence and growth. Anger signals the necessity for change.
If feeling angry signifies a problem, venting anger does not solve it. Venting anger may serve to maintain and even rigidify the old rules and patterns in a relationship, thus ensuring the change does not occur.
There are different styles of anger:
ƒæ React to anxiety by seeking greater togetherness in a relationship
ƒæ Place a high value on talking things out and expressing feelings and believe others should do the same.
ƒæ Feel rejected and take it personally when someone close to them wants more time and space alone or away from the relationship.
ƒæ Tend to pursue harder and then coldly withdraw when an important person seeks distance.
ƒæ Tend to criticize others who can¡¦t handle feelings or tolerate closeness.
ƒæ Seek emotional distance when stress is high.
ƒæ Consider themselves to be self-reliant problem solvers
ƒæ Have difficulty showing their vulnerable sides.
ƒæ Receive labels such as withholding and emotionally unavailable.
ƒæ Manager anxiety in personal relationships by intensifying work-related projects.
ƒæ May cut off a relationship entirely when things get intense.
ƒæ Open up freely when they are not pushed.
ƒæ Tend to be disorganized
ƒæ Become less competent under stress, thus inviting others to take over.
ƒæ Tend to develop physical or emotional symptoms when stress is high
ƒæ Have difficulty showing strong competent side in others.
ƒæ Know what¡¦s best not only for themselves but for others.
ƒæ Move in quickly to advise, rescue, and take over when stress hits.
ƒæ Have difficulty staying out and allowing others to struggle with their own problems.
ƒæ Avoid worrying about their own personal goals and problems by focusing on others.
ƒæ May be labeled as ¡§always reliable¡¨ or ¡§always together¡¨
ƒæ Respond to anxiety with emotional intensity and fighting.
ƒæ Have a short fuse.
ƒæ Expend high levels of energy trying to change someone who does not want to change.
ƒæ Engage in repetitive cycles of fighting that relieve tension but perpetuate the old pattern.
ƒæ Hold others responsible for one¡¦s own feelings.
ƒæ See others as the sole obstacle to making changes.
I am, an overfunctioner who not only has my own problems, but I take on the problems of others far too often. I seem to avoid my own problems by becoming engrossed in other people¡¦s issues so that I don¡¦t have time to change my patterns. My largest issue right now is not saying yes to other people when I want to say no.
When I say yes, I tend to become resentful because my precious time is being used up. When I get to an ¡§angry state¡¨ I become a distancer/avoider so people won¡¦t ask me to do more things
What is your stress/anger style?
yup.... verstanden.... na klar doch mir BTD und BIT auffi über alles möglichs, sogar über die Stickies' :-)
und dann kann es ja nur gut werden..... clarroooo... ein *muss*...zurück zur eigenen Natur.....
yup... I've got it... it's nothing than normal with BTD and BIT nothing else is to be to expected then good
and all kind of performance cant' be nothing else than realized and fine... even over the Stickies' :-)
clarrrooooo in that cases a little *must* back to our own nature.....
Well, well, I simply can't believe it's already almost over. Airbrakes is done with & my LIRR ticket class starts today. In a month & a half, I'll be on the trains & getting paid......FINALLY!!! All this work & no pay makes our finances.....pretty tight.
Despite that, we're fortunate enough to not have to give up the staples of our diet, like organic deli turkey, organic deli roast beef (for the O) organic soy milk, fresh celery, carrots & lettuce & frozen broccoli & spinach. I find the broccoli always goes bad when I buy it fresh & spinach is too much of a hassel to cook by hand. The organic eggs we had to give up but I'm only eating the egg whites so it's not so bad, I think.
Valentine's Day was very special. I don't usually get excited over meals. I mean food is here to fuel ourselves really & hopefully taste good in the process. I like jewelry & such as a preferred gift.....I mean, who doesn't? But the way to my man's heart is definately through his stomach. So since it's tight this year, he made me a romantic dinner. Very sweet. It ended up being the most DELICIOUS dinner I've ever had & now I can safely say, that if he made this again, I'd be terribly excited.
Pine-nut encrusted rack of lamb w/ olive oil & garlic cauliflower & mashed potatoes w/ gravy. SOOOOOO GOOD!!!! The only avoid he used was half a beef bullion cube. We have veggie broth so if there's a next time, I'll just ask him to use that. I swear, the cut of meat really does make a difference. I'd post the recipe right now but he combined 2 recipes from on line to make it. Hopefully in the future.......
Dance Dance Revolution - on another forum I often visit, a fellow poster was mentioning how DDR is now starting to be implemented in some schools for gym. WHAT A GREAT IDEA!!! WHERE WAS THIS WHEN I WAS IN GYM???? I sure would have exercised more with that.
For those of you starting DDR, don't give up. It's a little frusterating at first but after 3 days, you'll start to get the hang of it & not feel like a complete fool. Wear very light clothes, like shorts & a tank as after 15-20 minutes, I'm always sweating like a pig. Be sure to go to "options" in the main menu. Had this for a year and a half & just clicked on it last week. You can change the graphics of the arrows, the flashing background (if you are prone to siezures, always good to turn that off) or get rid of the little guy that dances with you. But I like them, doesn't make me feel so dumb dancing by myself....:-)
There is a fine line between innovation and corruption. This is something I have been thinking a lot about lately. As a society, we seen to take a beneficial innovation and slowly tweak it and smash it until it becomes a harmful being. This is especially true for our food supply. Think about some of the innovations in our history that have led to the imitation version of food that many people commonly ingest.
Then: First started to insure safety of milk. Milk heated at LOW temperature to kill bacteria
Now: Ultra-Pasteurization is king, allows huge companies to have less then sanitary possessing centers and deliver milk that lasts for months and is devoid of any beneficial enzymes.
Then: Caveman puts meat on stick, puts stick in fire; mmmmmmmmmmm…gives meat good taste and warmth
Now: We have manipulated chemical reactions, played around with nature, puffed, steamrolled and blasted food so much that it no longer takes the form of actual food, it is now so far from its natural state that someone living 100 years ago would not recognize the stuff people eat and call food (and be better for it).
Just something to think about………..there are many other examples of this.
On a personal note, I’m trying to think of things in a new light- as an A. Since being a strict BTD-atarian, my health has continued to improve and improve. I feel better then I have in years, but as I have mentioned before I am at a healing plateau. So I have wrapped my brain around what to do, how to solve this.
I think that the problem is this: I eat an avoid free/ 80-90% beneficial perfect Blood Type A diet- BUT (and this is a big BUT) I eat it like a perfect O. Well I am not an O, I can try and try to be an O, but I will never be an O-----so why am I eating an A diet for an O. It has donned on me that I must suffer from a condition called ‘stupiditis’. It is very serious with no known cure yet, except for smacking your head against something hard until you snap out of it.
So my goal is to start eating my perfectly beneficial, avoid free A diet, like an A. I am embracing my A-ness. We will see how it goes. You all must understand that this is hard for me and I am not exactly sure how to do it, so any suggestions on how to be an A, will be much appreciated (even for those O’s out there who think they are A’s)
helloooo Ihr Liebchens,
ich fühle mich schon wieder zu 2/3 lääbig..... bald wieder Ganz :-)
ich bin wirklich kein Selbstbeweihräucherer aber es scheint in diese Richtung zu gehen; neulich sagte eine Patientin, und dies hatte ich schon ein paar Male gehört, auch von Anderen, Frau A. wenn ich Sie nicht getroffen hätte wäre ich untergegangen! Ich fühle mich wie jemand der über den Hades gefahren wurde, in aller Sicherheit und mit aller liebevollen Unterstützung die man sich vorstellen konnte.
Klar bin ich für meine Leutchen da, egal wann und egal zu welcher Zeit, sogar in der terminalen Phase, klar
denn sonst würde ich nur einen Job ausfüllen und keinen Beruf. Es ist Berufung für mich und dafür bin ich dankbar denn mir ist sehr wohl bewusst- wieviele einen unliebsamen Job ausführen und nicht ihrer wahren Natur entsprechen sich bewegen können.
Und auch hier bin ich meinem lieben Freund Peter D'Adamo soo tief verbunden und dankbar, dass ich dieses wunderbare Hilfmittel BTD als Beiwerk zur Seite gestellt bekam; tiefsten Dank Peter im Namen aller meiner Patienten und natürlich auch nochmals von mir.
Hellooo all my beloved dearles,
to shorten the story, does anybody knows the name of this persona in the greek sagas which took the souls over the *Hades* ??? would be kind to get to knowledge....
sorry thats' ti for today, must hurry.....but I've got the name from this person...ouch..... but thanks to Peter in the name of all my clients and of course of mine, too with such beautiful tool named BTD... just
happy to be able to work on it and with it... to the best results for mankind.....gosses bises-huggers
This month is flying by! Weather-wise it has been quite nice with some rather bad driving conditions. You know it is bad when the taxi cabs are called off the street. Such was the case a few days ago. Since then, it has been fairly decent driving conditions except either on the way to or from 32 degrees F.
My newest granddaughter was released from the hospital this afternoon after three days. She developed a viral pneumonia last week. Although she was taken into the hospital ER on Saturday because her breathing was labored, they didn’t see any pneumonia so they sent her home. Tuesday morning my daughter got a phone call from the hospital telling her to bring the baby back in as they now thought maybe she did have pneumonia. By that time, of course, the pneumonia had worsened. She spent the first night in ICU. She’s been a pretty sick baby for a while with neither she nor my daughter getting any rest for many days.
Alaska has eleven athletes participating in the Olympics. One is from our neighboring town of Kasilof and most of the rest are from in and around Anchorage. I think one is from Juneau and another is one from Fairbanks. Considering that we have few cities of any size and that our population is about 600,000 people total, then eleven is a respectable amount of athletes.
Another daughter (the one who can’t agree with me over much of anything) called today to tell me she picked up a copy of the Sonoma Diet book which a friend of her’s had recommended. I was pleased to hear about most of the foods suggested as their Tier I plan are also good for type O’s. She is an O, so that might not be too bad. I’m not sure how the rest of the family will fare as I suspect there are a couple A’s in the mix. However, one good thing was she is trying to get the kids off the sugary cereal they traditionally have for breakfast. She’s been fixing eggs and toast for them instead. Whether my urging for non-wheat breads, cereals, etc. fell on deaf ears, I don’t know. But, at least they will begin eating better quality foods at least for a while.
I made a casserole for dinner with turkey chunks, peas, onion, crimini mushrooms, and gravy. This was topped by parmesan cheese and gluten-free biscuits. It wasn’t too bad, but not up to the guy’s expectations or appetites. I guess the dogs will enjoy it as a treat tomorrow morning.
We are now over 9 hours of daylight. When the sun shines, we can feel the heat again. Mt. Augustine is quiet for now. A crust has developed over the area from the last eruptionws. It is still gathering steam. When there is enough, the mountain will blow again. It could also settle down and go back to sleep for a few years. Last time it did this, it was active and blowing for about six months.
Take care. Till next time…
da bin ich wieder... ein bisschen Matsch vom vielen *schaffää* aber ansonsten alles im Grünen Bereich;
heute kamen die ersten Möbeli...yehhhaa supperrrrr freu mich schaurig.... langsam aber sicher kriegt das Ganze ein Gesicht------ Debra..... chasch choo luege ....:-)
here I am for a short info.....I am a little tired from lots of work, but all in the *green zone*....
today my fist furnitures arrived... yeeehhhaaaaaa I am sooooooo excited.... and I am very happy...
petit à petit the wholy bunch gets its own figure (face???? ) ouch......
Debra.....you might come over to have an eye on....... :-)
Well, today was finally the day that all the electrical work done by Oram Miller and Kent Haugan has come to fruition. I will be sleeping for the first time with some of the power off in my home in order to reduce the electrical fields. The magnetic fields have pretty much been taken care of except for some old copper pipes that I may switch out to PVC to create a dilectric (sp?) union. So, tonight, and the next few nights are the test to see if I sleep more soundly and wake up more refreshed! I had to move my bedroom completely in order to reduct the magnetic fields so there are a few factors coming into play but we shall see.
I really can't say enough about the work of building biologists. It is so fascinating yet so concrete. You see these electrical and magnetic levels go up and down on the measurement devices and you know with whatever physics background you possess (for me, that's high school level since I never took the college course) that this stuff is real. I firmly believe in my heart and in my scientific opinion that we could reduce multitudes of diseases if we were to embrace these concepts.
www.createhealthyhomes.com for more info.
Later this evening I joined these two for a building biology meeting. Deanne Lange spoke to us about MCS (multiple chemical sensitivies). It was a very intriguing subject because a)most physicians will throw all sorts of anti-histamines, steroids, OTC cold and flu meds at patients instead of getting to the root of the problem and recognize that many of the products we use in our homes and offices are causing sensitivies and b)many common but ignored diseases (e.g. Lyme) are misdiagnosed as MCS (though I also believe they could be co-diagnosed).
Finally, we ended our night at Perkins (yes, Perkins). No, it certainly was not the healtiest of meals, but I did my best given the menu circumstances. I had the cod ("lightly battered", right, ugh) with glazed carrots and broccoli. My beverage was tea with lemon. I did a little chamomile and peppermint. It was nice. The dinner conversations were quite stimulating though also a little hectic at times. This sweet but intense 80 year old man sat with us. He was passing out photocopies of the BTD bookcovers like mad! He was swearing by it up and down and sort of scaring people. I backed him in his pursuit to some extent but he was so zealous that people rolled their eyes and didn't want to listen. He was underweight and that's what made people think physically he was going too far with food avoidance.
It's easy to do, (scare people), with the knowledge (not to mention better health) gained from D'Adamo's work. Word of mouth spread can be a double-edged sword. When people begin to read the books like gospel and miss out on life and celebrations and begin spreading the word the way zealots force their respective religions on others, people get turned off. People just think you are nuts.
The best way to get your point across on this is: lead by example. Show the world you are healthier, don't just tell. This could be through weight loss (or weight maintenance in my case), good lab results (cholesterol, etc.), lack of rx meds taken. Then, once you have physically proven your point, wait until someone asks how you do it. If you are able to scientifically articulate the logic of this lifestyle and the student is willing to listen, keep talking. If not, then in the words of a great fellow pharmacist from Long Island who is as blunt as your typical Italian-American New Yorker can be, "Shut your pie hole!"
hoy Ihr Liebchens,
ich bin platt, geschockt,wütend und verzweifelt...warum denn nicht anders......
vor einigen Tagen brachte ich eine meiner Patientinnen zum normalen check ins' Spital, und heute ist sie nicht mehr........man(n) hätte dies mit einfachsten Mitteln im Prinzip in den Griff bekommen können, aber nein es musste wieder geschnippelt und Geld verdient werden, es muss ja manifest sichtbar werden.....
danke das genügt... würde hier meine Mutter sagen!
saluti all dearles,
I am soooo upset, angry,shocked all what is possible in negative feelings... I am jerking from O to 100
mades some few days that I took one of my clients (also a good friend of mine) to hospital for a check....
and today- she's gone........
it would be very simple to get this under control, but no it was easier to do an operation for whatsoever....
to show up in a manifester form what sickness might be???! ....and of course to say *ooo we have done all our best* yes to augment their income..... yes.....
*thanks- thats' enough* as my mother would say in such cases ......!
So last night I went to the Opera, or at least attempted to. The Opera started at 8pm, at 6pm I went to a pre-Opera dinner at a very popular well established restaurant and club. It is much more difficult to control what you ingest at events like these since normally one standard meal is served to the masses and there is little variation available. Since I have so much experience in dealing with situations such as this (My career field has made it necessary for me to attend many), I was not worried in the slightest. As soon as I got there I slipped back to the kitchen, explained my severe food allergies to the waiter and asked if there was anything he could make for me that might be ok.
No problem. He could make a nice grilled veggie plate. Good compromise. I go out, sit down and socialize. My meal arrives; I take a bite- STOP- my body says. I asked my date, who understands my issues to taste some and see if I was crazy or if there was some soy oil on them (soy is my biggest TRUE allergy, not just intolerance). He didn’t taste anything. Now angry at myself for being paranoid I eat some again- STOP- my body says. All the sudden my previous voracious appetite disappears, I’m just not very hungry I guess (No actually, my body just wasn’t all that hungry for something that was harming it).
The dinner ends we get up to leave and head over to the performance. As my date is standing in line to get our coats I noticed how incredibly tired I felt, hmmmmmmmmm, how strange, hope I can make it through the performance. My throat was very sore, felt like it was burning and my chest was tightening up, hmmmmmmmmmm, hope I am not getting a cold. Then my sure fire sign, my hands started itching, I looked down at my now balloon shaped digits and knew. Let me rephrase that, my mind accepted, what my body knew all along.
The evening needed to end. We exited the restaurant and turned for the car. By the time we made it home my hands were so swollen I couldn’t bend my fingers, my throat was so tight I couldn’t swallow water, my mind was fuzzy and all I wanted to do is go to sleep.
I got in downed two deflect and a quercetine and even took a Claritin redi-tab (that is right, me that doesn’t take medication and has not for years, I knew it was an emergency situation, better to take it myself then have them stuff more junk down me at the emergency room.
Moral of this story: Listen to your body, it knows what it is doing, it is our minds that can be foolish.

This has been another unusual week weather-wise. We are now above freezing and earlier it was rainy. The highway between here and Anchorage and Seward was closed yesterday and didn’t reopen until 3:15 this afternoon. There was an avalanche blocking the road near Seward, but the primary reason for the closure was the icy condition which caused many accidents. We also had very high winds with one gust registering 96 mph which really wrecked havoc with driving as the snow and rain made it nearly impossible to see. That was a major facet with all the accidents. With rain on the ice it’s like driving on a wet skating rink. They were thinking of closing the road again, but I don’t know what they decided. There is just one road, a regular two lane highway with occasional passing areas, which goes into Anchorage. Sure makes life interesting while driving around. I did stay home today as I didn’t have any reason to be out and about.
I tried an interesting recipe tonight using Fennel. The fennel was sliced, boiled, drained and then coated with flour, egg, and parmesan cheese before deep frying. It did have a nice flavor, but I’m not sure it was worth the work. Once in a while I enjoy trying unusual recipes.
Did I tell you about my roast beef sandwich at my favorite restaurant? It is now being made with romaine lettuce replacing the bread. I must admit that I sure like it better, too. My husband was aghast when he first saw me pick it up to eat. I now longer feel guilty when I order a sandwich. I really hate throwing food away and it bothered me to discard most of the bread. Now, I don’t have to do that anymore.
Well, that’s about it for tonight. Till next time…..
also für mich immer wieder wirklich erschreckens ist, hinnehmen zu sollen, wieviele tolle und überzeugte Richtigmacher es unter den stinknormalen Konsumenten gibt- herrjeeee gruuusig....einfach gruuusig... :-(
das ist ja noch schlimmer als ich dachte- unüberlegt werden chemische Keulen reingepfiffen- ohne sich dabei etwas zu überlegen oder überhaupt nachzudenken wie der eigene Körper funktioniert... und warum diese Dinge sooo schädlich sind...... und dies wird auch noch massivst unterstützt von sogenannten Medizinern... hey Leute la chaim heisst zum Leben und nichts weiter !!!
good morning dearles :-)
for me it becomes more and more scarry how people act...without any fears of *returns on invests* with
chemical bombes..... just without any form of thinking taking those terrible poisoning *gifts* and not even beeing scared that their body won't interact in the wrong way.....and that those products arent' at all that natural to use as they've got their habits ....!
Hey all dearles....*la chaim* means to go for life...and not against !!!!!
hallo und guten Abend Ihr Liebchens,
nach einigen Intermezzi mit den von mir heissgliebten Schulmedizinern, in den letzten paar Tagen, so bin ich ziemlich groggy; es ist einfach sehr anstrengend immerwieder auch in diese Sprache übersetzten zu müssen mit dem Endergebnis des absoluten Miss-und-Unverständnisses und schlichtweg unbeschreiblichster Aroganz und Unwissenheit.
Ich würde mir nie erlauben, über Dinge meinen Mund aufzumachen noch sogar mich darüber schriftlich zu äussern- hier kommts aber grad mal ganz dicke als Post und eben wie beschrieben, von unglaublicher.... na ja...so is es halt .....! Wie schreibt Briggs-Myers über die NT's sor ichtig, auch Freund Riso...chuckle.....
nichts ist zu weit hergeholt es ob es nicht doch existieren könnte, oder man erweckt es halt einfach zum Leben,:-)leider weit weg von BTD ....
After some unkind-and-unfriendly intermezzi with my ach so beloved MD's from the last few days, I am really tired, also to do the translations in their language. The effect was mostly served of missunder-
standings and a huge part of intolerable arogance and fragmental thoughts.
As Briggs-Myers mentioned it and dito Risos' nothing is too far for NT's not to be existant and if not... one becomes very creative and enables it to get alife :-) mostly far away from BTD-what a pitty ....!
aaalso ich bin nach einem wahnsinnigen Marathon (Arbeit) wieder unter den *Läbigen*..... grauenhaft wie bekloppt manche Leute sein können... ahem sorry *unwissend*.......
kurz und gut... heute zwischen div. Patienten durchgewurschtelt und auffi in den Lipo-Möbelmarkt vorgedrungen und schon meine halbe Wohnung eingerichtet..... alles Auslaufmodelle für einen Apfel und ein Ei billigst bekommen- yeeehhhhaaaaa ich freu mich....
Eine Spielwiese namens Bett...... ein ganzes Bureauzimmer... yuppers ihr habt richtig gehört ein ganzes
Bureauzimmer mit allen Möbeli.... und dann noch eine Couchgarnitur... sackteuer- vorher und jetzt bekam ich sie nachgeschmissen....hi-hi-hiiiiiiiiiii
Jetzt muss ich noch alles richtig hinpfriemeln und dann seid Ihr alle eingeladen... mich zu besuchen und wir machen es uns gemütlich... mit BTD-Mampf ......
na... wann kommt Ihr den???? .....ich höre....................
after a marathon work-weekend.. it was really terrible... I am back again under *written alife*....
it's terrible how silly some different people might be... ahem sorry... not well trained...or better said educated... yes this is the word.... :-)
ok- today went during two clients in a rush-hour and hurry to the next Lipo-furniture shop... bought a
playmeadow named bed ....a whole bureauroom equiped with all my heart needed... but only furnitures..nothing else until now.... and a couchgarniture...befor it was irxy-expensive... now they throw it after me ...........:-) nice
now I just must arrange all as it might be and theny you are all invited to visite me... for a good BTD food /dinner-lunch or what so ever is whished....hey I didn't got it..*when* do you want to come...huh??...................I am listening and waiting....
We have had a temperature increase of 56 degrees over last week’s low and it is still 2 degrees below freezing. Fairbanks high today was 12 degrees and that is 50 degrees warmer than their high of last week. Barrow was -51 degrees actual and with the wind chill it was -73 degrees! Wintertime in Alaska.
Tonight’s dinner was so tasty. I roasted a prime rib roast on the rotisserie. Then, I steamed jasmine rice and broccoli. My husband brought home from the store a nice, little carrot cake for my birthday. Well, I guess a small slice won’t kill me and it is my birthday. The twins brought home a small box of chocolate. Oh my!
Yesterday one of my dearest friends took me out for birthday lunch. We went to one of the up-scale restaurants. I managed to order a fairly compliant lunch and my friend and I talked about the BTD and a couple other things. She works out of the area most of the year so catching up was especially nice.
I went to bingo this afternoon. I am so not a football fan and wanted to get out and do something fun. I didn’t win anything, but did have a nice time visiting with some of my friends. One lady has so many health issues but just can’t bring herself to try the blood type diet. I did tell hear again about the BTD and how it helped with all my new health improvements. Her only comment was how she has such serious health issues. I may as well talk to a rock.
One of the posts on the forum today mentioned using lecithin for warts. Well, I’ve been adding lecithin to my smoothies for two or three weeks. I looked at my hand and the wart is gone! There is another addition to the list of skin improvements noticed the past couple weeks! Gee, this is fun.
I’m still fighting with my blood pressure. My ND said he’s never seen anybody with blood pressure as erratic as mine. So, in addition to acupuncture, I’m trying another technique to try and lower it. It is just emotions wrecking havoc with my BP. The pulse is good and almost always the diastolic reading is good. Two out of three are okay and normal. Now, just let the stressors be gone.
Till next time.
This past few weeks have been a bit more than the typical Alaskan winter. A week or so ago huge ice formations at least 20 feet high and football length were discovered on two streets in Barrow. The winds blew the ice chunks from the Arctic Ocean onto the streets and made them into one lane for traffic. Heavy equipment was able to clear the covered roadway.
Yesterday, large ice sheets pushed against a 600’+ oil tanker tethered to the dock about 20 miles away from here. The strength of the ice caused the cables holding the tanker to the dock to break. That allowed the tanker (unable to be controlled) to float until it rested upon a sandbar. It was re-floated this morning. Although this could have had a tragic environmental outcome, everything went just as it needed to be. Alaskans have instilled many safeguards related to the drilling and transportation of oil and its products. Eight gallons of fuel was spilled because everybody knew what to do and did it.
We’ve had a lengthy period of cold weather in the state. Many days the state’s lowest temperature has been below -60 degrees. That is not counting the wind chill factor. Last night the temperature in Barrow with the wind chill factor was -79 degrees! When I drove home last night after grocery shopping, it was -20 degrees. That’s a bit nippy and there was a breeze which made it around -30 with wind chill factor. C-O-L-D!!! Daytime temperatures have been around zero. Within the next couple days it is to warm up and even get into the 30’s above zero sometime next week.
When it is cold it is imperative that our diets consist of more fat than usual to help keep us warm enough out of doors. Additional fat in the winter does make a difference. Recipes used are certainly different than during the summer. We make sure the dogs get ample fat with their food to keep them happy and content as they snuggle up in their dog houses.
My husband and I went out for dinner tonight. I had a prime roast (6 oz) with glazed carrots and a nice and BTD friendly salad bar. I brought most of the dinner home because I’m making an effort to stop eating as soon as I get any inkling that I’m getting full instead of eating what was served. My goal is to lose weight this year.
I am beginning to redecorate my kitchen and do a bit of rearranging, too. The way I have it now doesn’t allow the heat to be distributed throughout the room very well. When it is well below zero the kitchen is quite cold. I bought some shelving units today that will enable the heat from the baseboard to circulate better and give me necessary storage space.
Well, that’s about it for now. Take care. Till next time…
Ok, I’m starting to get embarrassed by my ever looming day count- Isa (1 day) Lola (2 days) Laura (6 days)!!! So……………….
Have you ever had that feeling of hitting your head against a wall? I’m not talking just bumping into a wall turning around and going the other direction, I’m talking, literally bang, bang, bang over and over again, getting a bruise, bang, bang, bang…….continuing to do it. That is the point I’m at right now. I see myself hitting my head against the wall, and yet I have done it for so long, I don’t really know what else I would do with myself if I stopped. Make sense?
I feel I have gotten to a healing plateau, I know I need a change, but I’m just not sure what it is. Everyone is being so helpful with ideas, my problem is that I have such a headache from doing this for so long, that I can’t think clearly enough to decide what changes I need to make and make them.
I guess we all have our own walls. Once you figure out what they are (wheat, sugar, coffee) you can make the conscious decision to turn away. Until you recognized them, bang, bang, bang……………………………….
My older son crashed while snowboarding so as a precaution, the ski hill sent him by ambulance on a backboard to the Children's Hospital. It ended up being a bruise on the lower back, but his helmet saved his head from serious injury.
We need to check out his helmet to ensure that it can sustain more hits but otherwise, everything is OK.
There were numerous other things going on at the hospital last night. We were in an 8 bed triage room and all the beds were full. Only 2 were injuries, the rest were horrible respiratory conditions, mostly babies under the age of two.
When the doctors spoke to my son, they were quite amazed my son didn't have anything wrong with him and that he had never been to children's before. They kept asking about asthma and other allergies and my son kept saying no. He did keep saying though he was intolerant of wheat and dairy. The nurses commented on what is left to eat and B said meat, vegetables and fruit!!!
I then listened to the rest of the rooms, none of the babies were being breastfeed, they were all on formula, milk and juice. The doctors don't ask if they have been drinking fluids like water, breastmilk etc, instead they ask if they have been drinking fluids like formula, juice and milk.
The children over 2 had been in the ER with respiratory problems before and new they took a mask of ventalin, then would eat a "nutritious" snack of cereal and milk. The babies sounded like many of them had ear infections, been on antibiotics for 5 days, got diarhea (sp), and respiratory infections. They too were getting masks of ventalin and then bottles of formula.
It was an incredible night and I wanted to stand in the middle of the triage room and say, get your babies off cow milk formula, stop feeding them wheat and get them eating 4 their blood types but of course, no guts....
Asthma cases are up 400% in Calgary alone. The triage room was full of asthma instructions for parents and as the nurses pointed out, their greatest single admit is asthma, then ski/snowboard/bike accidents but the ratio is about 70/30...
So my question of the day is how to educate mainstream populations (parents) who desparately need to find out about Blood Type Diets so their children don't end up with chronic conditions...

Well, today Muppet turned 15 years old. A couple weeks ago I wasn’t so sure he’d make it. The medicine the vet gave us has worked well to keep the fluid out of his lungs. The blood panel she did showed that everything is functioning very well except for his heart. The medicine will give him a bit more time.
Mt. Augustine has been spewing forth steam and ash almost constantly the past couple days. Fortunately, we have been spared any ashfall. This could go on for quite some time. A major explosion is unlikely if it continues this way as the steam vent is still open. A major eruption could happen if the vent closes and lets the steam build up again.
While walking at the grocery store today, I was watching a lovely Russian woman and her children. The women are easy to spot as they are always very well dressed in their long dresses and, if married, their hair is covered. The men dress in their suits and most often wear hats. The children are similarly dressed, except the unmarried girls don’t wear hair coverings. Most come from a Russian village between here and Homer. Actually, there are two villages as they split a few years ago over religious differences. They speak Russian and the children are taught primarily in their own tongue. They migrated to Alaska about the same time I did in 1959.
It is above zero today. It should stay that way until late tonight and then will drop down below zero again, but not nearly so far below as it has been for the past week or so. In another week, it should be back to normal temperatures in the teens and twenties.
I was devastated earlier today when I stepped on our newly obtained bathroom scales. Our old scales needed to be replaced, but I thought they were still accurate. Well, upon stepping on the new scales I immediately gained almost 15 pounds! Boy, if that didn’t bring me down. Not to be the only one that gained that much, I had the twins step on it too. They gained that much, too. Now, just wait until my husband does that. He’s not going to be happy at all and I’m sure a diet will be his next step. It is really amazing how a piece of equipment can bring a person mood up or down. But…
I am absolutely thrilled that my skin has made dramatic improvement the past few months. I don’t usually pay all that much attention to my skin, but I did notice the other day that I don’t have cellulite anywhere, anymore! Wow!!! Then I noticed that I don’t have turkey skin on my legs either! And, I also don’t have skin tags on my neck, shoulders, or abdomen anymore either!!! I used to have about a dozen of those skin tags and they really bothered me. I haven’t any idea when they all left, but they did. That has to be related to the blood type diet!!! I’ve been staying about 90% compliant. I’ve been getting my essential fatty acids with the flaxseed in my morning smoothie with lots of fruits. Well, it has paid off with much healthier skin. Now, to get my BP under control.
Tonight’s dinner is a crockpot cooked moose roast with many different vegetables and rice. The carrots and onions were cooked with the moose. I added the broccoli, spinach, mixed vegetables with zucchini, and rice a little later. We’ll be eating shortly. Take care.
