People with a high metabolism can eat more goitinerogens than people with low metabolisms and it does help to make them more civil and fit into
societies better. The problem comes when telling people with low metabolisms that these foods and food chemistry is good for them. If a person
doesn't make enough stomach acid or if their liver function is low naturally or through their diet, their body temp often drops below 98 degrees. My
normal temp is ninety seven. At the lower temperature less enzymes can be formed. Enzymes are necessary to process foods. This limits a persons
diet a little unless companion foods and herbs/spices are incorporated into the diet.
Lower body temperature helps to extend lifespan. Antioxidents often help lower body temp and extend life. The problem is that if a person has a
naturally low body temperature or problems with the thyroid, which can be adjuvated by eating goiterinogens, their body temp goes even lower.
Moderate exercise or activities raises body temp though so these people with the low metabolism benefit greatly with jobs where they move around.
There are a whole lot of vitamins that are reliant on proper metabolism that can be helped by a little moving around. Nowadays a person does nothing
but sit in their chair at work. No trips to the file cabinet or xerox machine to give them some movement. This is bad for people with this different
type of metabolism. They need a job where they move. Saunas help as long as a person's cooling system doesn't kick in and cool them down and
further deplete their nutrients.
As you can see, this is very complex, it is not a simple thing and everyone needs to find their own special nitch. My wife thinks I go overboard on
broccoli and spinach. I use these as examples. At the same time she will not eat raw spinach and brocolli and hates cauliflower. I know if I
forced her to eat these she would lose her energy, she just thinks she doesn't like them. Why doesn't she like them is the question. Her
subconscious knows that her energy level drops and tells her no. We are being told to disregard what our bodies are telling us today, something that
is totally wrong.
There are a lot of chemicals of the antibiotic/antioxidant class sprayed on fresh veggies. These miticides hurt people with low metabolism. Washing
them doesn't work either because they soak into the veggies, I read actual research articles on this. Dropping the veggi into boiling water for a
minute helps a lot with this and the veggies sometimes taste better as the taste of the chemical is dispersed into the water or neutralized. I am not
satisfied with complaining, I am trying to fix things so they can be healthy, this takes lots of experimentation and research. These chemicals
aren't in most organic veggies but organic chemistry is used that has similar problems. Our bodies are more accustomed to this organic chemistry
though and know how to better deal with it.
My intent is to make people aware that this is happening, not to rant. We can learn to fix our food instead of fearing it. It may mean a little
extra work but good health is worth it. It may mean that you have to pay attention to how food effects you but it is worth it. To do this you need
to research a lot of things and not jump to conclusions. I have made my share of mistakes testing on myself and realize that there are differences
between men and women also. Men need more niacin and women need more Leucine. Leucine counteracts niacin which is a nitrogen compound. Nicotinic
acid can give afib type events if consumed too much but eating food containing leucine can regulate this. I can go on with a lot of mistakes but this
one caused my wife some grief and took a couple of grand in copay from our wallets. Too much chili peppers and hot food can cause temporary afib like
symptoms. I cooked she ate and when she made chili because she started to get used to the increased niacin she added to much chili powder which put
her over the edge. Herbs and spices are strong, they are medicine and medicine can cause problems. I won't make that mistake again, it was a
learning experience. She was given a medicine for the afib and quit it within a week when her legs started to swell. She does not need the medicine.
Remember to study Leucine.....It sounds like lucy a womans name, is that a coincidence?
