YESSSSSSS!!!! Walnut.....take that Cortisol DOWN and CRUSH IT!

GO WALNUT, GO WALNUT, GO WALNUT !!!!!

This FAB recipie from an unknown middle-eastern country SAVED THE DAY today and it was my second day in a row eating it; only - this day was filled with cortisol overload. I had been hoping and praying on the job that my altzheimers-like brain would somehow clear up from being awash in cortisol ...and nothing made it go away, no amount of fluid, no protein, no amount of meditation...blame it on my Explorer liver? UNTIL........LUNCHTIME

2nd day in a row eating a middle eastern dish called "mahammas" which I cannot even find the recipie for on the internet. "mahammas" is NOT "hummus" so mahamms is not an avoid for me. here are the ingredients:
40% crushed walnut paste >>> my bene, omega 3's!
40% roasted pimientos, mashed >>>> my neutral
20% finely ground onions and spices >>>> my bene

Paired it with a bed of kale sprinkled with cranberries and grape slices, and a glass of pure water.

OH MY GOD.....1 hour later: COMPLETE BRAIN AND BODY CLEARING of cortisol >>> as if the crushing stress of the morning NEVER, EVER bound itself to my organs and feelings. This was better than SAM-E as a mood restorer, too!

OMG!
OMG!
OMG!

Dr. D THANK YOU for encouraging me a year ago to find out my own cortisol limit, because now I am working on a "combo" to clear cortisol every day!

Thanks so much for sharing your experience. I think it's exciting and I'm going to test it for my frequent runaway cortisol.

I think under the spelling of muhammara you'll find many recipes.

Ok now I'm wondering. If in a situation when muhammara is not at hand what if I consumed an amount of walnut oil? My gallbladder is not fond of too much fat at once but recently Goldie has had me looking at good fat in new ways. Anyway, I'd rather be doubled over with GB spasm than be a puppet of cortisol excess.

Impressive Seraffa.....thanks for sharing!  .....didn't realize walnuts were so powerful!

Reminded me of something. I grew up in a house where we had this tree log nut bowl with it's
own nutcracker, always sitting on a coffee table and always filled with walnuts (and sometimes
pecans) in their shells. I ate walnuts constantly as a child for snacks.  Got me thinking
about what happened to our log nut bowl (long gone),and whether I could find one of those nut bowls online now.  Sure enough....found a vintage one on ebay that looks exactly like the one we
had.

Think I'm going to buy it.....just for old time's sake....and fill it with walnuts in their shells so I can re-create the memory of sitting on the sofa with my 2 younger sisters, holding the bowl on my lap, .....and almost in a meditative state, cracking one nut at a time and enjoying every little piece I picked out of the shell.  Why not go for an old time walnut memory!!

Just wondering if walnut "milk" has the same effect?
I´ve been making it in recent weeks and absolutely love it with some seasonal (& compliant) fruits for breakfast.. really satisfying on these sunny summery mornings. I prefer it to any other "alternative" milks that I´ve tried so far. I want to try making ´pecan milk´ next!

I am thrilled to see you here at the thread, Dr. D! And thank you because I was not sure whether my liver had to do the work of clearing it out first -- but there you have it!

"Taking my brain to the bathroom every day" makes a huge impression on me.   ...who would have thought.

In a manner of speaking, been there done that with the basic ingredient, Baccopa.
It's more like a "dam against the tide", or something to slow the rate down. But in my case I kept noticing on the worst days the dam breaks and the spillage roars out into my body anyway. I was always hoping to find something that would "break it all up" once it spilled into my system and affected me. Exercising should be an aid but like Dr. D says - the brain autophagy for my type is very, very important.

Thank you, Yaeli! For those who like walnut sauces there is another found in Georgia that I made years ago; combines pounded walnut, White wine, garlic and spinach. (divine.....mwahhhh    These people from the hilly areas of the far middle east REALLY have something going for them.....

Good idea. I grew up with the same deal regarding Pecans. I'm sure there were lots of omega 3's I got as a child that enabled me to learn faster, but today my SWAMI says "not anymore." So almonds and walnuts it will be for me.

Tasty!
My SWAMI says the whole nut is the thing, for me. even if I make a milk, I leave the sediment for myself at the bottom. (Very similar in concept to drinking Turkish coffee, with grounds at the bottom of the cup.)

I just checked walnuts on typebase.  English walnuts are beneficial for all except for B secretors and they're neutral.

But, when it comes to black Walnuts, they are beneficial for all blood types, secretor and nonnies.

I eat English walnuts.  Has anyone tried black walnuts?

Difference between English and Black walnuts.

have one right outside my door, ok about 20ft.  They are much stronger, but I didn't know about soaking them. I will try doing so this year.

C - do you have any special way of fixing them?

I often observed walnuts as a  true no-go for 0's but the oil change the structure so all changes ... or are these only talkins of da Belzeebub.... (to his uncles)

Just to add to this as a tribute:  My mom lived a long life 91.  She grew up on a farm and then moved to City life but never lost her roots.  She so many times ASKED: why does no one plant food bearing trees in the US where there is soooo much space?  Her idea was that we all ought to plant trees from which future generations could benefit.  She seemed to know that she would never see a walnut tree giving off nuts, but she thought that no generation would have to go hungry if we all planted trees with the future in mind!  

I wonder would walnut trees grow in my yard? In tempered climate? How to find walnut roots and stem to plant and then how messy would the nuts be?  What greater tribut to my Mom than planting a walnut tree!  I have a space in the middle of my lawn where it would fit perfectly.  

Another thing she liked about food trees, that the wood would be precious.  

So is there a BTD specific species of walnut I could buy and plant???

Mom grew up in a country where every tree is treasured, and one has to get 'permission' to cut it down.  In the US the craz for trees and bushes is now becoming a danger of becoming food for wildfires.  Woods need tending to prevent fires, yet I never see anyone doing so.  I wish more trees where cut down on the view side of highways, so we all could see more of the mountains and valley's when traveling.
      


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!
