Seaweed for Omega-3

Seaweed is the ultimate source of omega-3 in seafood, so why not take a shortcut and skip the fish. There are many different seaweeds that you can buy and they are all good sources of omega-3. The quantity of omega-3 is not as high in seaweed as it is in fish and seafood, but it is the seaweed and algae that are the source of omega-3 in fish and seafood.

There are many different kinds of dried seaweed available and they are often used in Japanese and surprisingly in Irish cooking. They can be used in soups, salads and even baking. In addition to the omega-3 seaweeds and algae are a good source of minerals and iodine.

This link discusses the benefits of omega-3 and the benefits of using seaweeds as a source:

Why doctors aren’t talking about omega-6.

Here is a link to and article by Dr Bill Lands about why doctors are not really treating the cause of heart disease–omega-6: http://www.fastlearner.org/Bill’s%20Papers/2003Review.pdf

Doctors are biased toward using expensive procedures to fix medical problems–that is where a lot of their money comes from. Doctors pay more attention to drug treatments than to dietary remedies. Even if they do pay attention to dietary studies, they want simple studies that compare one diet to another instead of complex biochemical studies that seek to understand the complex cause of diseases.

Insurance companies don’t care either, the higher the cost of medical treatments, the more they can justify higher rates. They get to keep 20% of the cost of their policy holder pay, so the more you pay the more they get to keep.

Only the people ultimately paying for medical cost–you and I–are really interested in reducing medical problems and their associated cost. The problem is that most people do not have the knowledge to understand the biochemical causes of disease. I have the ability to understand the biochemistry and the chemical terminology, but until I began to research the effects of lipids in my diet, I was unaware of the studies that make it clear to me that excess omega-6 is behind many of the medical problems that I was dealing with personally. In my book, I try to make it simple and easy for people that do not have the ability to understand chemistry and biochemistry and just show you what foods you need to avoid and the ones you need to increase in your diet. I also provide the chemistry and biochemistry, which for most people would probably be a good sleeping aid.

My recipes and menu will help you learn how to prepare truly healthy meals and my list of lipid content of various foods will help you select the kinds of foods that are lower in omega-6 and higher in omega-3.

Thanks to all those that have bought my book. I hope the diet helps you as much as it has helped me.

Benefits of Oil-Change Diet

I know that it may seem like a lot of hype to say that The Oil-Change Diet can reduce heart disease, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, cancer, blood pressure, asthma, allergies, pain, depression etc., but the truth is it probably does even more. The benefits of this diet affect so many diseases because the lipids that this diet seeks to control are lipids that control basic cellular functions like clotting, inflammation, allergic response and cellular permeability. I personally know that this diet will reduce arthritis, blood pressure and pain–it has done those things for me. It has also increased my HDL and improved my good/bad cholesterol ratio. It has also helped me lose almost 50 pounds in the past year.

Omega-3 and omega-6 lipids both turn into super hormones called eicosanoids, however, those made from omega-3 are beneficial and those made from omega-6 are the hormones behind many of the most common diseases. Omega-3 eicosanoids  hormones are anti-inflammatory, clot busting, anti-allergic and reduce pain. Omega-6 eicosanoid hormones are inflammatory, clot promoting, allergy stimulating, vaso-constricting and increase pain.

We need some omega-6 lipids, but not the typical omega-6/3 ratio of 10:1 or even 20:1 many people on western diets have developed. My book, The Oil-Change Diet, shows you how to balance your omega-3 and omega-6 lipids. It points out the many common sources of omega-6 that are often called healthy foods. It also shows you how to increase your intake of omega-3, with or without fish and seafood in case you want to maintain a vegan diet. 

My book is also a cookbook with delicious healthy recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  

My Book is Ready

I finally got the format problems solved for my book, The Oil-Change Diet, and it has passed the format check at Smashwords.com.  The price is just $2.99 for now, but will go up to $4.99 when it goes to Amazon.com, so get your copy now at Smashwords.

The money this book can save you on medical cost can be a thousand times to cost of the book–it has saved me that much in just one year. You can get the information in my book for free (except for my recipes and menus), but it will take quite a bit of time and unless you are a chemist, some of it may be hard to understand. I hope that I have made the chemistry more understandable and that you will enjoy the recipes.

If you value your health, research the benefits of a balanced omega-6/3 ratio and how to achieve a balanced ratio or buy my book. I promise you it really did help me eliminate 9 prescription pills a day–arthritis medication I had been taking for almost 40 years, blood pressure medication, heart rhythm medication and pain medication,

Oil-Change Diet Book

My book is finally available on Smashwords. I am still working on formatting problems to get it into other distribution channels, but at least it is available now. Please check it out at the link (in blue) above. It is priced at just $2.99, which I think is a real bargain and will pay for itself many time over in what it can save you in health cost! (I will need to sell several hundred copies just to recover my actual cost).

Moderate drinking protects against Alzheimer’s and cognitive impairment

There are studies that show reduced incidence of at least 4 major diseases associated with moderate drinking; Alzheimer’s, diabetes, heart disease and some cancers. Studies suggest that moderate drinking, 1 to 2 drinks a day, reduces each of by 30 % or more, if a drug could do that with even one of these diseases, it would be a blockbuster!
