Why Gluten Free? Part 2 #glutenfree

Why Gluten Free? Part 2 #glutenfree

If you’ve been hearing a great deal about the benefits of going gluten free, you’re not alone. If you’ve been noticing that grocery store aisles for gluten free products are growing, you are not alone. In fact, the gluten-free industry made 3.5 billion dollars last year, and you need to know why.

Dr. Perlmutter has a father dying of Alzheimer’s disease, which peeked his interest in his studies about brain health and why Alzheimer’s and Dementia have tripled since the government suggested 60-70% of carbohydrates for a healthy diet in the 1970s. In days of old, people didn’t die of heart-related diseases and cancers, they died of cholera, tuberculosis and dysentery. Perlmutter proves in his book Grain Brain that brain disorder, chronic headaches, depression, epilepsy, and extreme moodiness is not encoded in the DNA, but is a result of the food you eat. He feels that modern grains (modified by scientists) are not just the culprit, but also whole wheat and some other whole grains can be just as harmful. He contends that these specific grains are bullies to our most precious organ, the brain. Most of the studies done for healthy bodies have not included the health of the brain. So, as a neurosurgeon, his take has been a not-so-new observance, as he has found case study after case study disproving a high carb died is healthy.

Perlmutter says that diabetes will double your risk for Alzheimer’s disease. He also says that statin drugs will increase the likelihood of diabetes in women. As we all probably known already, the pharmaceutical industry has been very deceiving, always trying to deny Americans the right to understand completely why food is the true culprit of disease, and giving us the clear challenge to use a drug to eat what we want or change our habits.

My writing has always been about lifestyle changes. I present you with a truth, and you decide whether or not you want to make that change. I had found over the weekend, after reading this book, that the most difficult change to make is not foregoing wheat, but avoiding sugar, which is just as costly for brain health. Today I ate my steelcut oatmeal without sugar. It wasn’t so bad. I could get used to it. Daily exercise has also helped me go from bad case of arthritis to a very manageable low level of pain. I feel as though if I stay on this gluten-free diet that I can get my pain down to zero now with the dawn of Perlmutter’s new findings. I will continue with this tomorrow in my blog.

New Challenge: Go to Week 9 of the “Year to CLEAR Challenge” at www.Bosebastian.com

Look for MY LATEST BOOK: “Finding Authentic You, 7 Steps to Effective Change” with a Year to CLEAR (C-larity, L-ove, E-nthusiasm A-nd R-elationship-Ready) on my Website in the Webstore. Thanks!

Below is information that I will be sharing for about a month, as not every person on my list reads the blog every day. If you have already read it, just skip over it. Thanks for understanding.

A Year to CLEAR Challenge:
(Please Know: You Can Join Us At Any Point in the Year Challenge.)

The masses search outward for things that qualify them as a person, but I always go inward for that which quantifies me for greatness. At twenty-five I preached on street corners in NYC as an in-the-closet Pentecostal minister. One day I heard a still small voice say, ‘God cannot be contained in a book or a law or even in a religion. Dig deeper, reach further to find me, and you will find your authentic Self.’”

A Year to CLEAR Challenge!

The acronym CLEAR stands for (Compassionate, Loving, Enthusiastic, And Relationship-Ready). The goal of this project is to engulf readers in a weekly study that will transform them by removing blocks, promote self-growth, and give them wings to fly freely into daily life. Each week, by going to BoSebastian.com and choosing the Year to CLEAR Challenge tab, a new challenge or thought to provoke conversation, growth, and group functionality.

My vision is to make Finding Authentic You the book to have in your Kindle or on your computer. The book is a comprehensive look at growth—spiritually, mentally, and physically.

As a yoga teacher and student of the Ayurvedic tradition, I bring to the table understanding of physical challenges, the ability to overcome mental problems with Life & Health Coaching, as well as hypnotherapy, and expertise in meditation and spirituality as a minister.

The combination of all three in one book with an interactive connection to like-minded readers, for one year, is what makes this Year to CLEAR Challenge a must-do for every spiritual seeker.

The One-Year Approach to Change

No one believes he or she can change overnight. But success in change comes from the metaphors of nature. Seasonally, life changes all around us in nature. Finding Authentic You offers a gradual change perspective, looking at the triune aspects of change as in yoga: Body, Mind and Spirit.

Accessing the ability to change and finding yourself actually pursuing change must be a daily search, which I call getting to the “observer mind.”

In this frontal cortex of the brain we find the anatomy of change and the power to counter every negative trigger of the human process. The workings of Hypnosis, NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) are all positive actions to help the mind and body flow to a positive space for change.

Every aspect of FINDING AUTHENTIC YOU fulfills this constant need for diffusing the negative past and dreaming of a fulfilling future.

Step 1: Recognize That Change is Inevitable
Step 2: Release from Resistance to Change
Step 3: Understanding Change and Allow Spirit to Define It
Step 4: A History Lesson—About You
Step 5: Look at Your Past with Compassion
Step 6: Making a Strong Commitment to Change
Step 7: Dream Your Fabulous Future

Why Gluten Free? Part 1 #glutenfree

If you’ve been hearing a great deal about the benefits of going gluten free, you’re not alone. If you’ve been noticing that grocery store aisles for gluten free products are growing, you are not alone. In fact, the gluten-free industry made 3.5 billion dollars last year, and you need to know why.

I have gleaned most of my information from a great book called Grain Brain by Dr. David Perlmutter, who is a neurological surgeon and also a founding member of Holistic Foundation and has a doctorate in nutrition as well. In this book you will find 1000s reasons to get off of gluten, add necessary fat back into your diet, and remove most of the sugar and simple carbs from your diet.

The influence of gluten and sugar in the diet, not only cause inflammation to the joints and make your stomach feel sour, but they can cause insistent migraines, contribute to diabetes, cause other neurological problems such as twitching, Turret’s, and Lou Garrick’s disease, and most importantly Dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Your brain needs a proper amount of fat to function properly. But when you introduce gluten, too many carbs, and sugar to your diet, the fat that is supposed to go to your brain to help with depression and to think accurately, releases one of its atoms making the fat a free radical in the body. LDL fats, which have been known to be bad for the body, are actually essential for the brain’s health. But these LDL fats cannot be free radical fats. Sugar and carbs are what cause these fats to change from an essential part of brain health to a detrimental form.

Dr. Perlmutter has found that almost everyone has a resistance to gluten, even people who don’t have Celiac disease. He includes a few blood tests in his book to help your figure out if you are sensitive. As I said, most people are because of how gluten is processed in the body. These grains are the main problems, mostly because the have been highly modified in the past few years by scientists: wheat, rye, barley, semolina, spelt, matzo, couscous, wheat germ, bulgur.

In the next week, I’m going to walk you through some of the problems with gluten, starches, and sugar in your diet and help you find great alternatives in the food market today.

How Do You Handle a Loss of Power

How Do You Handle the Loss of Power?

Most people come to me depleted and wondering why they feel so disenfranchised and full of anxiety. At the heart of almost every problem is a loss of power.

Some people give it away. Some people are coerced to give it away. Some people have their power snatched away by force. And the most unfortunate, are so young they have no choice in the matter.

Most people who come in to see me (and this may sound so bizarre, have lost their power to a thing, not a person). The thing is usually food or cigarettes or sex or gambling or pornography. This is the easiest of all places to retrieve your power, because it is within your own power and your power only to get back what you alone have given away.

But when the transgression has come from another person, the matter gets a little stickier. Forgiveness, boundaries, legalities, and the retrieval of your authentic power all have to be put into their proper place for your health to come back.

This takes time and the  of a good mental health practitioner. Don’t expect to do something this hard on your own. You are not Svengali. Each step takes special care in the doing to help mend your heart and retrieve that power you so rightfully deserve.

If you are one who has been mentally, spiritually, or physically raped or abused, my prayer is this for you today:

“Spirit God, help me find a way to reach out of my pain and find help. More importantly, I need to forgive myself, forgive You, and try to see what has happened to me as a chance for me to learn a strong lesson about losing my power. There is a powerful God strength inside of me that I know I want to access. Please help me find it again. Lead me to the person who will help me retrieve it without judgment and without pity.”

(I want you to know, friends, that I, too, had been raped as a child. I know, full well that regaining my power has been a life-long job. I accept it fully now. I know that if I touch only one person with what I know and what I learned, I will have succeeded in making it all worth the fight. Much love. Bo)
