ADHD HEALED

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, ADHD is a chronic condition marked by persistent inattention, hyperactivity, and sometimes impulsivity. ADHD begins in childhood and often lasts into adulthood. As many as two out of every three children with ADHD continue to have symptoms as adults. The number of children getting diagnosed and treated for ADHD has risen over time. The most common type involves both a mix of inattentive symptoms and hyperactive-impulsive symptoms.

Children with ADHD also may struggle with low self-esteem, troubled relationships and poor performance in school. 

INATTENTION

A child who shows a pattern of inattention may often:

  • Fail to pay close attention to details or make careless mistakes in schoolwork
  • Have trouble staying focused in tasks or play
  • Appear not to listen, even when spoken to directly
  • Have difficulty following through on instructions and fail to finish schoolwork or chores
  • Have trouble organizing tasks and activities
  • Avoid or dislike tasks that require focused mental effort, such as homework
  • Lose items needed for tasks or activities, for example, toys, school assignments, pencils
  • Be easily distracted
  • Forget to do some daily activities, such as forgetting to do chores

HYPERACTIVITY AND IMPULSIVITY

A child who shows a pattern of hyperactive and impulsive symptoms may often:

  • Fidget with or tap his or her hands or feet, or squirm in the seat
  • Have difficulty staying seated in the classroom or in other situations
  • Be on the go, in constant motion
  • Run around or climb in situations when it’s not appropriate
  • Have trouble playing or doing an activity quietly
  • Talk too much
  • Blurt out answers, interrupting the questioner
  • Have difficulty waiting for his or her turn
  • Interrupt or intrude on others’ conversations, games or activities

 Children with ADHD are more likely than others to also have conditions such as:

  • Learning disabilities,including problems with understanding and communicating
  • Anxiety disorders,which may cause overwhelming worry, nervousness
  • Depression,which frequently occurs in children with ADHD
  • Disruptive mood dysregulation disorder,characterized by irritability and problems tolerating frustration
  • Oppositional defiant disorder (ODD),generally defined as a pattern of negative, defiant and hostile behavior toward authority figures
  • Conduct disorder,marked by antisocial behavior such as stealing, fighting, destroying property, and harming people or animals
  • Bipolar disorder,which includes depression as well as manic behavior
  • Tourette syndrome,a neurological disorder characterized by repetitive muscle or vocal tics

It is possible that the chronic use of sugar could cause changes in brain chemistry that may eventually lead to ADHD. Children with high-sugar diets were more likely to have disrupted sleep, most commonly breathing problems and night sweats.  Unfortunately, ADHD  can’t be corrected simply by removing sugar from the diet in short-term studies.

Children with ADHD are about twice as likely to be overweight or obese and vice versa. Many foods are very high in sugars, which are strongly associated with high insulin levels and inflammation, which is not obvious, but is present throughout the body.  This inflammation can only be detected by special blood tests in research labs. 

Researchers noted “improved behavior and focus” among children with epilepsy who tried the keto diet.  A decrease in carbohydrates may lessen the symptoms of ADHD.

KETOGENIC DIET FOR DEPRESSION

KETOGENETIC DIET FOR DEPRESSION

It’s no secret that most people are overworked, under-rested, and living on a poor diet. It’s also no coincidence that the modern advice to eat a diet high in carbohydrates, low in fat, and with constant snacking or small meals throughout the day has coincided with a rise in diabetes, obesity, and mental issues like anxiety and depression.

Depression is no joke. It’s serious. It affects approximately 3 million people every year, just in the US. Approximately 1 in 5 in the US and Canada will experience a mental health illness in any given year , and almost 7% of the population will have experienced a major depressive episode in the past year.

Starting a ketogenic diet, removing high-carb refined foods, losing weight, and eating whole foods is bound to help with mood and make you happier. This alone could have benefits for those with depression. They have studied rats on a ketogenic diet displayed less behavioural despair— meaning they exhibited less hopelessness, and they were more active than the control group not eating keto.

The general consensus is that the brain functions more cleanly and efficiently when a significant portion of its energy comes from ketones, calming overactive and overly-reactive brain cells.

It should be noted that when the body is initially adapting to burning fat instead of glucose, a period known as the “keto flu,” one might feel worse at first. So it may take several weeks or longer for most people to adapt to a low carb diet.

During that transition time when you are first reducing your carb intake, your body has to make new enzymes to burn fat instead of glucose. While it’s busy making these enzymes, and you are eating less carbs, your brain chemistry is changing, and it’s possible to experience lower mood during this time, but it passes once the body adjusts and is able to level out. As your body adapts and learns how to burn fat instead of sugar, mood levels out, and the depressive feelings lift.

KETOGENIC MAGIC PILL

KETOGENIC DIET: A GAME CHANGER 

KETOGENIC MAGIC PILL

 Most people don’t have the time, money or energy for lengthy diet and training routines. That’s where ketosis came into play: turning your body from storing fat to burning it.

Here is a simple explanation: 

I have had a little five pound pouch that I have been carrying for a few years. I am an avid swimmer; I swim five times a week for a distance of one kilometer (40 lengths x 25 meters).

 I started a Keto diet by simply eliminating all sugar and carbohydrates like toast for a couple of weeks. To my amazement the pouch finally disappeared. 

How did it magically happen? The body needs energy for all its bodily activities from keeping the heart pumping to managing my stomach and intestines. This energy demand is vital.

Normally, the body will find easy energy sources in what I have been always eating: potatoes, spaghetti, etc. During the last ten days, the only energy the body could muster is from the fat build up in my five pound tummy. Voila!

KETOGENICS MAGIC PILL

I simply kept to a balanced diet including vegetables and fruit and I ate according to my needs (not overeating). I noticed that my water consumption tripled. During the transition of burning good fats using the liver, I felt a little dizzy. I simply drank it away with a smoothie.

Yes, there are other diets. The most important part of any diet is persistence.  Yet, Keto allows you to splurge on good fats, which is hardly a sacrifice.

KETOGENICS MAGIC PILL

I started the morning after my swim at my favorite restaurant, Coco Fruiti,  and ordered an omelet – no toast or potatoes and a double order of fruit or tomatoes, which was offered free as a replacement.

I was introduced to the diet from my friend, Pedro, who now looks amazing after months of Keto. Of course, he added an exercise regime to burn away his excess fat (the body could not find any carbohydrates to burn for energy):KETOGENICS MAGIC PILL

SPIRITUAL WEIGHT LOSS

SPIRITUAL WEIGHT LOSS  HIGH LEVELS OF WEIGHT LOSS

To adapt to this uncertain food environment, our ancient ancestors and all other animals developed a highly motivating and rewarding relationship with food. The oldest parts of our brain motivate us to hunt for that food, which we now have a 100% chance of getting — and we don’t have to exert much effort at all to get it.

SPIRITUAL WEIGHT LOSS

More than 2 in 3 adults are considered to be overweight or have obesity in the United States. In other words, being overweight or obese is the new normal for Americans. Each one of these people carries an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, musculoskeletal disorders (e.g., arthritis and low back pain), cancer, type 2 diabetes, and depression. 

Keto is one of the most effective ways to lose weight rapidly and keep the fat off for good. The keto diet is a low carb and high fat diet that is similar to the Atkins diet – except there are no complicated phases to work through, making it a little easier to follow, especially for diet beginners.

The plan is said to cause fast weight loss while allowing dieters to remain satisfied, thanks to the large amount of fat included.

PEACE ON EARTH NOW 2

HERE AND NOWPEACE ON EARTH NOW

Jesus shows us the way to be in the world without being of it. When we model our lives on His, a new world will open up for us. The Kingdom of Heaven will be ours, and the earth today will be our inheritance. We will be comforted and have our fill; mercy will be shown to us.

Yes, we will be recognized as God’s children and truly see God, not just in an afterlife, but here and now: ““Blessed [inwardly peaceful] are the gentle [the kind-hearted], for they will inherit the earth… Blessed are those who are persecuted for doing that which is morally right, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven [both now and forever].” Matthew 5: 5, 10 That is the reward of modeling our lives on the life of Jesus!

We who are Christians must pray, read the bible and let our Lord lead us. Easy? No, for we are human and we have our thoughts and our feelings.

Walking in faith is not easy: we want the pleasures of the world at times, but turn away from that for it is not the way of Jesus. When we pray to our Lord, we find peace and contentment on earth NOW!

This world is not our home.

We will have a heavenly home one day – free of sin and violence.

EXHILARATING HEAVENTHE EXHILARATING FUTURE THAT AWAITS YOU

In his book, IMAGINE HEAVEN, John Burke writes about survivors brought back from near death who lived to tell of both heavenly and hellish experiences. While not every detail of individual NDEs correlate with Scripture, Burke shows how the common experiences shared by thousands of survivors–including doctors, college professors, bank presidents, people of all ages and cultures, and even blind people–point to the exhilarating picture of Heaven promised in the Bible.

The consistency of these experiences is amazing. People world-wide almost all experience a very similar ” Being of light” –some know him immediately as Jesus, while others call him by the name of their god, such as certain Indian gods. Continue reading EXHILARATING HEAVEN

AMAZING BIBLE HISTORY

 OLD TESTAMENT HISTORY

God gradually reveals Himself as what we need to know. He does this by selecting one small tribe out of all the nations on earth. He has chosen them to be His own people. He has given them a land, a law and temple in which they are to worship Him. They are to learn who He is and how to live in communion with Him. Of course, they fail Him repeatedly and the BIBLE history of the Old Testament is filled with stories of these failures. Yet, He continually refashions the relationship and rebuilds this communion. They eventually begin to see more clearly His awesome faithfulness and love.

AMAZING BIBLE HISTORY

GOD ACTS IN HISTORY TO ATTAIN HIS PURPOSE.

All of the sacred history of Israel occurs in the full history of the ancient world. This is not a fairy tale: God acts in history and space to attain His purpose. The Jewish people had lived under a succession of foreign empires for centuries. The Jews finally realized that their little kingdom would never be restored without God and His graces. Ironically the Jews are still waiting for God to reveal Himself.

The most interesting development in the history of the Bible is observing how God has protected and guided the small kingdom of Judea starting from 2000 BC. He knew that Jesus Christ was to be born in a small town in Bethlehem in 4 BC.  In Micah 5:2 (750-686 BC), there is a prophecy that reveals that Bethlehem would be the birthplace of the Messiah: “But you, Bethlehem, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.”

After 2000 years, the Bible has been translated into 1120 languages and dialects. We look at the Bible as a historical document, and evaluate its validity from unbiased grounds. Many of the people, places, and things mentioned in the Bible can indeed be verified 100% through modern day archeology.

Who ever heard of the Philistines, the Assyrians, the Medes or the Seleucids, and where do we read about the great defeat of Pharaoh’s army in the annals of Ancient Egypt?

THE AMAZING MAGIC OF DELIVERANCE

 Deliverance from Prison

How do you know that your prayer of deliverance actually works? The person that needed to be delivered will always feel a new sense of peace:  some receive an amazing feeling of airiness as if something has left; some feel a tingling: “By their fruit you will recognize them.”                                                                                                         Matthew7:16  

WHAT IS DELIVERANCE?

deliverance is

Deliverance is defined as “a rescue from bondage or danger.” Deliverance is often sought from evil spirits or the spirit of lust, jealousy, etc. We are told to “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.”                                                                                                                                                  1 Peter 5:8,9

All aspects of deliverance are available only through the person and work of Jesus Christ:” When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, ‘Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!’”                                                                              Luke 10:17

 DO YOU NEED DELIVERANCE?

To determine if you are in need of deliverance, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Are you continually argumentative or contrary–usually on the verge of anger?
  2.  Are you violating, neglecting or causing pain in a relationship?
  3.  Are you practicing sin and can’t seem to stop?
  4. Do you see a pattern of issues in your family, whether disease, poverty, anger, divorce, sexual perversion or other issues?
  5. You are sick all the time and the doctors find nothing wrong. You could be dealing with a spirit of infirmity?
  6. Are you having “spiritual” encounters, including recurring  dreams/nightmares that you leave you fearful?
  7. Do you sometimes sense that the problem isn’t you, but rather something in you?
  8. Are you attracted  to the occult. , e.g. Ouija Boards, Seance, Fortune Telling, Horoscopes, Hypnosis etc, or Witchcraft?
  9. Have you experienced traumatic events that have impacted your life negatively?
  10.  Do you keep hitting the same wall.

                                                                                                                                                        Crime has reached an all time high and people are researching into unique crimes.   Even crime prevention experts are  bewildered. The world has lost its peace and tranquility.
