Want calming foods. I know a little about that.
Naturally fluoridated foods like grapes, tea, coffee, and some other foods grown on volcanic soils contain organic fluorides. They calm a person by
lowering Iodine use in the body, especially the thyroid.
Eating broccoli and cauliflower lower iodine absorption because they contain isothiosulfates and another chemical. They block iodine absorption
within the digestive tract. Other cruciferous veggies also do this. This calms a person longterm but also can cause the liver to lack iodine and
stop detoxing things which poisons the thyroid and adrenal gland if too much is eaten. Boiling the veggies gets rid of the problem but also looses
the calming effect. Eating dip containing calcium helps to neutralize the oxalates in spinach and broccoli by tying them to calcium within the
Asparagines are good for calming, the natural form is the best way to get them. Asparagus is a good source of these as well as potatoes. Potatoes
should be eaten with vitamin K1 or K2 foods though, they help to detox some of the nightshade problems......just put butter on the potatoes. Breads
are also a calming foods, some of the starches are asparagines. When asparagines are browned they form acrylamides. A little acrylamides are good
for things but too much is no good. If you want less dumbng down, toast your bread. These are just a few examples of these foods. Old recipies are
great for researching these things. Cooked cabbage is another good calming food, used a lot by Asians to calm their people. Aspartame is an
asparagine but it is not tied to anything and can cross the blood brain barrier causing problems.
Beta blocking food can calm a person, Natural good sources are most red meats and asparagus again. These help regulate energy use by blocking the
signal of the brown fat and lowering the overall ketones available to the body. The natural foods don't make you gain weight like beta blockers do.
They calm you. There are many other foods that regulate the beta waves, too many for me to start listing. Same with the other calming techniques,
many foods contain them.
Next is maoi inhibitor foods. Turmeric and nutmeg can help to calm people by inhibiting the breakdown of the Tyramine. Just eating more tryamine
containing foods or getting the right probiotics in your gut can help with this. Foods containing tyramine are fermented foods and they include beer
and good aged cheeses. Too many tyramine foods while consuming turmeric and nutmeg containing foods (mustards and pumpkin pie) can give you a
migraine. It's called the cheese effect. Tyramine is better than eating MSG because MSG crosses the blood brain barrior.
Other things calm people by weakening them using the Plant defense system. Banana and avacodo are a good example of the class 1 plant system.
Defense systems are chitinases and over consumption shuts down the human mammilian system. A small amount can help us build our system. Potatoes and
many root veggies utilize the class 2 system. Moderation is best because we don't want to calm ourselves by being weak. Pharmacuticals often
concentrate these chemicalst and it weakens us.
There are other ways to do this also. I look at what the FDA is pushing to find out ways to dope people. I know of a few more chemicals but can't
comment on them much yet because I need to research them more. Not everyone can eat all of these foods and too much has bad effects also. The safest
I found so far seems to be asparagus and boiled cabbage. Asparagus was used by Odin and Cabbage was used by the Romans and Germans. Potato is safe
but should be used in moderation. Potatoes cross react with bananas also to give allergies. Potato, tomato, banana, latex cross reactivity is being
researched also. so don't eat the potatoes in the same meal as bananas unless the bananas are cooked in bread or pie or something.
Before using natural foods to help calm yourself, it is good to study them a bit. Using these foods if taking meds also causes side effects. You
can't use the immune or defense system of a plant if the medicine you are getting is utilizing that concept, you will overdose. If there is a cross
reaction of different chitinases, like class one in the medicine and the class two in food you eat, (potato and carrots) there is a problem brewing.
Research on your own, listen to the doctor if you are on these sort of drugs if they say not to eat or drink certain kinds of foods then don't and ask
why. Hope your doctor knows about these things, they may be clueless.
I remembered something I can give some information on. Nicotinic acid in foods, plant based niacin, can help with energy utilization and can help
calm some things but if too much is consumed it can cause you to have other problems. Women need more Lucine to counteract too much niacin in the
body. Foods containing Lucine can help with acne possibly also because too much nicotinic acid causes the skin to break out. Acne itself causes
depression so that may contribute.
Eectile disfunction may be helped by chocolate or beets, both help to dialate the arteries and may allow the "Hum Hum" to last longer. It also helps
women in a similar but different way.
