From Mel Friedman's website:
Welcome as always.
Saturday, August 21st is the second anniversary of the inception of the protocol that has restored my health as outlined on the protocol page of my website. It also marks one full year of my being on the entire Burgstiner Wellness Protocol from Logos Nutritionals.
I have been symptom free since December 2009 and off all Morgellons related medications for for a little more than nine months now. If someone would have told me two years ago that I would be rafting down the Truckee River twice in a five week period of time, I would have found them difficult to believe.
The fact that I sustained a minor back injury between the two rafting trips makes it a little more difficult for even me to comprehend. Rafting down the Truckee was something that I had not done in the first nine years that I have lived here in Reno. Now, I have gone down two separate parts of the river. the second even more beautiful than the first, as we started high atop Lake Tahoe at Tahoe city.
As you gently float down the river from Tahoe City to Truckee, you are in awe of winding through the mountains. The beauty is incomprehensible. During my five hour trip, many times I found my mind wandering to all of you who are caught up in the nightmare of Morgellons disease, and looking forward to the day when many of you will be joining me on a trip such as this.
As I have often said, never, never give up Hope. My back is a little sore and my knees are a little stiff, but according to my doctor, Shannon Zamboni MD, I am "The Picture of Health".
Now I would like to thank the folks from A2Z, a very special thanks to my doctor Shannon Zamboni as well as John Burgstiner for enduring along with me my struggle of many years against Morgellons.
God Bless You All. Never, Never Give up Hope.
Researchers at the US Department of Agriculture have found that tea, when regularly consumed, increases insulin activity more than fifteen fold. great news for millions who are overweight and prediabetic or who have developed type II diabetes. It appears that the polyphenols in green tea, black tea and oolong tea enhance insulin production and reduce insulin resistance, helping cells to recognize and respond to the hormone.
The most promising reported health benefit of polyphenols may be their ability to protect us from the many hazards of high blood sugar. They do this by binding bad cholesterol (LDL) and reducing glycation end products, two of the body's most offensive enemies in terms of aging and degenerative disease.
Glycation occurs when simple sugars such as glucose or fructose become attached to proteins or fats without the moderation of an enzyme. Cross linked molecules that are highly disruptive to metabolism are the normal result. unless of course we are enjoying our regular cup of tea!
The good news doesn't stop there. Studies have linked many other benefits of regular green tea consumption to catechins and other powerful phytonutrients. demonstrating positive impacts on everything from mental function and weight loss to heart disease and arthritis.
So what are you waiting for? Start a healthy new tradition in your life today.. tea time!
A Lawyer After God's Own Heart
During the rebuilding of New Orleans , residents often were challenged
with the task of tracing their home titles back potentially hundreds
of years. With a community rich with history stretching back over two
centuries, houses have been passed along through generations of
family, sometimes making it quite difficult to establish ownership.
This story is about a letter an attorney wrote to the FHA on behalf of
A New Orleans lawyer sought an FHA loan for a client. He was told the
loan would be granted if he could prove satisfactory title to a parcel
of property being offered as collateral. The title to the property
dated back to 1803, which took the lawyer three months to track down.
After sending the information to the FHA, he received the following
Actual reply from FHA:
"Upon review of your letter adjoining your client's loan application,
we note that the request is supported by an Abstract of Title. While
we compliment the able manner in which you have prepared and presented
the application, we must point out that you have only cleared title to
the proposed collateral property back to 1803. Before final approval
can be accorded, it will be necessary to clear the title back to its
Actual response by the lawyer:
"Your letter regarding title in Case No. (_______) has been received. I
note that you wish to have title extended further than the 206 years
covered by the present application.
I was unaware that any educated person in this country, particularly
those working in the property area, would not know that Louisiana was
purchased by the United States from France in 1803, the year of origin
identified in our application.
For the edification of uninformed FHA bureaucrats, the title to the
land prior to U.S. ownership was obtained from France, which had
acquired it by Right of Conquest from Spain .
The land came into the possession of Spain by Right of Discovery made
in the year 1492 by a sea captain named Christopher Columbus, who had
been granted the privilege of seeking a new route to India by the
Spanish monarch, Queen Isabella.
The good Queen Isabella, being a pious woman and almost as careful
about titles as the FHA, took the precaution of securing the blessing
of the Pope before she sold her jewels to finance Columbus'
Now the Pope, as I'm sure you may know, is the emissary of Jesus
Christ, the Son of God, and God, it is commonly accepted, created this
world. Therefore, I believe it is safe to presume that God also made
that part of the world called Louisiana .
God, therefore, would be the owner of origin and His origins date back
to before the beginning of time, the world as we know it, and the FHA.
I hope you find God's original claim to be satisfactory. Now, may we
have our ____ loan?"
The loan was immediately approved!
