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!

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.

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.

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!

We always had a bowl of walnuts in the living room or dining room growing up too.  In fact, even our ski house in NH had one...a Dedham pottery type of bowl filled with walnuts with a nutcracker sitting in it.  Memories.
I have trouble with some walnuts though - the bitter ones "sting" my tongue.

Walnut trees will grow in yard (may need to select right variety for your area), but be aware that once you have the walnut established nothing else will grow very well (They block light and emit juglone, a chemical that is toxic to some plants and stunts the growth of others).



Planting a walnut grove not only provides nuts for the future, but nice wood that is fairly valuable.

Natural range of walnuts:

http://forestry.about.com/od/hardwoods/ss/walnut_3.htm

Walnuts falling from trees can be a mild hazard.

The hulls of the nuts are messy (stains skin and fabric).


As other have already noted the black walnut is rated higher for type B.

The black walnut is the messier tree with nuts that are much more difficult to shell.

Once you get the black walnuts out of the shell they are worth 50 to 100% more than English walnuts.

I feel sad when I think of hickory nut trees getting burnt down in wildfires.  
C_  and Goldie: ground walnut shells are very valuable to the fur industry; they are a key component in the dry powder that furriers use to yearly clean mink and other animal pelts and wearables. Make yourself a good living off those trees, Goldie! 3 products, shells, meat and wood are as good as having a flock of sheep (meat, milk, skins) for profit

And Romans were said to use the shells to singe the hair off their legs for beautification, but.......well, we have wax treatments now.

We have black walnuts galore around here, if you can get to them before the squirrels do! They are notoriously messy and tough to shell as C# says though. We used a vise when I was a kid--time-consuming but worked pretty well.

I love walnuts, both English and black. One of my favorite recipes is blended broccoli soup with a bit of grated pecorino stirred in, and toasted walnuts on top.

The black walnuts are all over the place here has well.  Hickory too.  As C# says not easy to shell and very messy. Black walnut tincture is good to rid of parasite (don't try making this one on your own)  South Ark has pecans. Your mom was right. I've put in 1 cherry and 1 apple this year hope can get some Almond trees for this fall.

Yaeli-shatzala... le marido of Sheherazade .... nope this is a superbe book written from the compagnero of Rudolf Steiner and he invented a special dance according to Steiners' teachings... and his name is Gurdieff and he wrote a trilogie named *Beelzebubs Erzählungen für seinen Enkel* meant here is Belzeebub's talkins to his grandson .... oops made a mistake by spelling the name

Just bought walnut butter - it have been missing too long from my pantry, and organic walnut oil - very expensive, the equivalent of $16 for 1/2 a liter bottle. As I inquired for both butter and oil, they asked me at the store what had happened, and I cited Dr. D's post.

They pack the butter in small 200 g jars. The store had only one, and I plan to go to the factory situated somewhere here in town and buy some more.

Are walnuts hard to find in Israel? Or only the oil and the butter?

I have no clue what Leah's diet looks like right now!

I made walnut butter yesterday using English walnuts but added some beneficial cinnamon, rice bran oil and a little agave.  The result was almost like eating candy.

Then I took half of the walnut butter and added tamari roasted almonds and pecans for a whole new taste treat.  A different candy flavor. But the almonds and pecans were left a little chunky on purpose.

Much more fun than eating plain nuts is eating nut butter off a spoon!  I was imagining how this
would taste if I were allowed chocolate. (black dot)  I could imagine melting the dark chocolate and
drizzling it over little nut balls....Drooling as I type!

Chloe, Jane,
I, too, grew up with the bowl of nuts (in their shells) and a nut cracker on our living room coffee table! My Mom would sit and crack and eat most late evenings while watching TV!!!
There are Black walnut trees all around our family friend's house, inland from the San Francisco Bay area, called Antioch. He sends us some each year to bake with but we snack on them. I love the dark rugged trunks of Black walnut trees.

Not at all! They are everywhere in abundance. In the shell or shelled (in the shell they don't become rancid so fast). Fresh walnuts appear in the markets in Springtime, toward Passover.

They have a nickname: Brain nuts. Because their shape is like a brain.

Goldie, I think walnut oil tastes great.  It has a nutty walnut flavor, definitely not a light tasting oil.  I find olive oil rather bitter tasting and prefer walnut oil in a salad instead.  They are both diamonds, and I reach for the walnut oil the most.

Ditto. It's my go-to for anything that disagrees with the agressive flavor of a fruity evoo. Really appealing flavor for salad dressing with lemon juice & sea salt when the greens are delicate, like spring mix. Almond oil is better for fish though, I think, and of course none of these is good for searing or extended heating. When I need something that really recedes into the background, I use rice bran oil (also good, like ghee, for high heat). And oh, what I wouldn't give to be allowed avacado oil! I nearly cry when I think of pre-BTD days eating sliced avocado drizzled with walnut oil and sea salt. Nearly every night. OMG!

Great thread.  Seraffa, did your doctor do a test on you to determine your cortisol level?  I'd be interested in finding mine out!  Anyway, a great way to get an intense and delicious dose of walnut wonderfulness into your system is to make a walnut pesto.  Simply put your walnuts into a blender (or, far better, a food processor, if you have one, OR, if you are totally perfecto and want to be very authentic about the whole thing, you could actually use a mortar and pestle, but let's not get cray cray) with some olive or walnut oil, some lemon juice, sea salt to taste, and garlic.  PUREE!

Delicious pesto ALERT!

Smashing. Now I know what I bought a food processor yesterday for (I liked it so, but truly wasn't convinced that I needed it at all).

Pesto!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I love the classic basil pesto best, but walnut is, as the British say, "a little bit of all right", too.  Goes well on grains (like brown basmati rice), veggies, fish...or just mainline it intravenously, it is that good (especially the basil, but I digress--I am crazy for basil).

Black Walnut trees naturally occur in our region (southeast Ohio) and they are easy to grow, my brother has a tree and every year there are dozens of new sprouts from walnuts that dropped on the ground and never got harvested. I think Walnuts naturally occur throughout temperate zones here and in Eurasia.Wondering how walnut oil compares to walnuts in terms of food value.

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!


ouu Rosa!!! tell me how you made the Walnut milk?!!

Our cheating way to eating a pecan pie is to take 1/2 of a large date and stuff it full of walnut pieces...  OMG!!! it's amazing!  one of the best deserts I've ever eaten!  My husband likes to add a bit of ghee to the date before he smashes in the walnuts!!!

mouth watering heaven!!!

I have a small food processor, so I just took 2 large handfuls of walnuts and threw them in there...then added a few squirts (out of the bottle) about 2 tsp of agave or less plus drizzled in a little oil as the processor was running...And I don't know how much oil it was -- maybe also a few tsp.I didn't measure.  My result wasn't super creamy....more like dry peanut butter. As for cinnamon, I kept tasting it till I felt it was right.  Maybe 1/2 tsp.
