I want to talk with you about Kelp because it's amazeballs, but there is also another part of me that doesn't, and the reason is simple:
We live in an Instant Gratification, No Strings Attached Society and to use herbs correctly and Run With Energy you need to put ego to one side and commit to the process.
These two concepts do not walk happily hand in hand.
So I'm really concerned that I'm going to talk, and all you're going to hear is the amazeballs bit, and just fuck the process bit.
I still need to talk though, so here goes:
Kelp is amazeballs.
It is full of iodine which is what we need to keep our Thryoid working properly. An underactive Thryoid makes you sluggish and overweight. An overactive Thyroid gives you anxiety and makes you all antys.
The Thryoid walks hand in hand with the Hyperthalamus. The Hyperthalmus is the boss of our appetite and hunger pains. Or lack of. Kelp automatically starts working and regulating the Thryoid and therefore, the Hyperthalamus.
Kelp is full of calcium - for bones and muscles and magnesium - who synthesizes protein, muscle function and regulates blood sugar levels.
Kelp also has an abundance of iron, manganese, potassium and zinc. But it also has: Vitamin K, C and the B vitamins - riboflavin, pantothenic acid and thiamine required for proper metabolism and energy production.
But wait, kelp contains a number of potentially bioactive compounds which are not present in terrestrial plants and may have anti-obesity benefits. Early researchers have discovered that a natural fiber derived from kelp, called alginate, could help block fat absorption in the intestines by 75 percent.
(SHITE THAT WILL HARM YOU)
* Kelp naturally has arsnic in it. If you buy cheap, from people who don't care about their products and use the cheapest natural product and process, you will get an extremely high dosage of arsnic, giving yourself arsenic poisioning. Cheaper is NOT better.
* DO NOT use Kelp if you have a thyroid disorder, an allergy to iodine, kidney or liver disease.
* Eating kelp as food is safe, but excessive iodine intake from kelp in ascophyllum nodosum supplements can overstimulate your thyroid and cause inflammation of the thyroid gland and increase your risk of thyroid cancer. A very large dose of iodine can create nausea, fever, weak pulse or a burning sensation in the throat, mouth and stomach.
* DO NOT USE KELP IF YOU ARE USING THESE MEDICATIONS:
Potassium-sparing diuretics such as triamterene (Dyrenium, Maxzide, Dyazide), amiloride and spironolactone (Aldactone)
Thyroid medicines such as levothyroxine (Levoxyl, Synthroid), liothyronine (Cytomel), liotrix (Thyrolar), and thyroid (Armour Thyroid)
And last, but not least:
Although the upper limit for iodine is 1,100 micrograms, the FDA set the safety standard for iodine content in a kelp supplement to not more than 225 micrograms per daily serving. I'm not using these dosages, but then again, I refuse to take any supplements in pill form. I think overall, they're a waste of money, time and effort.
I personally, am using the dried Kelp variety.
Don't you be guessing.
Now I've said all the bad stuff, Kelp is fucking amazing if you get the right dosage, run with Energy and commit to the process of full body health - emotionally, intimately, physically and Spiritually. I personally, have found it to be awesome for hunger pains (or lack of), higher energy, regulating of blood sugar levels and weight loss. I have so far, lost about 1.5 possibly 2 kg's but what it's doing is not weight loss as such but allowing me to regulate, or reset, my body.
However, in having said that, Mares has been off her food for almost a week so this may in part, be me syncing in with her. I don't believe so, but it must be taken into consideration.
I love Kelp though and am a huge fan, and I want you to love it too, just don't let me down and be Instant Gratification - No Strings Attached peep.
Be someone I can be proud of.
Had a great night at Cambridge. I love the vibe there, everyone's relaxed and easy going and we had some great conversations.
A bit random, but you know, that's my kind of vibe.
Spirit have been very kind to me recently though, more than normal, as if they've given me a Spirit holiday. Ok, now I know that sounds random and slightly weird considering I am so crazy bug busy, but think of really great vibrations, real soul connections and contented times. And talking of that, for the first time I saw a Spirit outside my home, on the road tonight. That's very bizarre, I don't normally see them like that. Or in that way.
Anyway, a super cool night.
Elvis is the cutest of the cute!
No, seriously! He wanders round feeding out with me in the morning, after get up time and milk, and then goes hunting round the house. He follows me out to the truck when I leave to go see Mares and baby Mares, waves me off and then hangs out at the house until he hears me come home.
As soon as he hears my truck stop, he hoons round the corner, down the steps and waits for a snuggle.
Think of a guard dog.
Just in lamb form.
So, that's been our week: It's crazy busy and I'm driving everyone nuts because I'm so excited about our new foal. Everyone is like, She's not ready, Tania and I'm like, Ok...but she may be and then Mares and baby Mares and me are all talking and cuddling and videoing. Looking for a new angle, something which is different from yesterday, learning how to listen to the food/vitamins/minerals/herbs that Mares and baby Mares needs and Energy.
What has changed, how has it changed and more importantly, how can I tell the difference?
There's also been lots of random conversations. Ones that have come out of the blue gifting me an abundance of friendship, soul connections and a deep knowledge that I am supported and loved.
This foal journey that I started over 12 months ago, has brought so much more into my life than just an (almost) physical foal.
In all areas, in ways that I never imagined.
Wishing you much love my friends, and of course, my humans
Caps, me, Spirit, Az, Ralph, Chew, Suz, Fenny, Flash, Gino, Elvis and of course, my darling Mares and baby Mares.
Almost 100% sure baby Mares is coming tonight. The Energy's changed and Spirit are like, Get organised, hurry up, hurry up, hurry up...
I was worried that I would miss the Energy as it changed with Mares, but I haven't. I literally went into nesting mode. Getting everything ready, tidy, organised and then all of a sudden I was like, Anytime after 5.50 tonight is Boom, baby!
It may be tonight, it may also not be tonight.
All I know now is he's ready, Mares is ready, I'm ready.
I am working very hard to listen to Energy now, to hear how it changes, what's different, have I done everything I should have, and have I dotted all the i's and crossed all the T's?
I've also shut the house down. This is a Spiritual term and is used in the way of, I am only focussed on Mares, baby Mares and phone clients. Literally, I shut the house down and allow no other outside influences to come in.
It is a surprisingly successful way to work.
Stay in the moment, enjoy the process, love the journey.
