Oxalates and Migrants: a Metaphor podcast


 As illegal, unwanted migrants swarm across our borders, we can compare what happens to our country and civilization with what happens within our own bodies by bad interlopers.  Just as our country has been being invaded for decades by demographically dissimilar to us peoples, destroying and overcrowding our systems of schooling, policing, health care, housing, and every other facet of our political system- so too has your body been invaded for many years by a bad chemical chiefly produced by plants- oxalates!  


We have been brainwashed into thinking that, like Popeye- “We’re strong to the finish if we eats our spinach!”  Unfortunately, this is not true, not true at all!  Spinach has been pointed out of ages as being loaded with iron, numerous vitamins like vitamin A and K, and is low carb and loaded with fiber and Vitamin C!  What’s not to like?


Well, plenty!  Almost all of the nutrients found in spinach (and in all vegetation, actually) are not bioavailable to us.  They are ‘frozen’ as it were, unassimilable by animals such as us.  And they come packaged with a huge amount of oxalates, which are a compound that steals the very nutrients we are hoping to get from the vegetable (like spinach) that we are consuming, and actually takes these same nutrients from out body and other foods, giving us a net loss of nutrients.  


But the oxalates are even worse than that, in that they build up in the body, in joints, organs (like the kidneys that try to neutralize them) and can wind up causing incredible damage over time- stiff joints, leaky gut, all kinds of nutrient deficiencies, and a marked inability to heal in soft tissue injuries, causing seemingly lifelong aches and pains.  In fact, I have come to believe that most of the aches and pains, poor digestion and many other problems that are normally attributed to simple old age and wear-and-tear are actually caused in actuality by this long-term build up of oxalates!  They are that harmful.


Ironically, we get these harmful compounds by eating foods (like spinach) that we have been told are ‘healthy and virtuous’, and so inadvertently slowly poison ourselves with the best of intentions!  But really: should we be surprised?  These recommendations from organizations like the US government, that advocates eating mostly whole grains (which are also loaded with oxalates), and to eat sparingly of things like red meat and eggs. (Both of which are probably the very healthiest foods we can consume).


And, of course, they also tell us to eat plenty of vegetables, most of which are also loaded with oxalates, and other plant chemicals that are in actuality anti-nutrients.  Meaning compounds that harm us, not help us.  The various government agencies, you should know by now, are not in place to help the average citizen any longer- they have become a part of the Government Swamp as Trump so accurately puts it.  They function to help big agriculture to sell more subsidized grains, and to mislead us into thinking certain things are bad for us that aren’t, and also to help continue the profits of big Pharmaceuticals (who only benefit when we get sick by selling us more drugs), and big Medicine, which is their middleman by way of expensive health care for largely preventable diseases and maladies.  


Once again, we are back to the metaphor of endless migrants coming to our shores, and making all of our systems less efficient until finally the point of total failure.  Islamic migrants?  A people that is sworn to our destruction, and our government has been welcoming them within our cities and states?  And to what benefit?  Just like human oxalates, they are dedicated to our destruction, and we are told to welcome them regardless!  

“Eat your spinach!  Welcome Muslims!!  It’s all good!!”


It’s not, none of it.  We should not eat spinach, or beets or beet greens, or rhubarb, or whole grains, or sweet potatoes, or white potatoes, fries and chips.  At least not much..  At the very least, we will get kidney stones which are very painful, and that is just an indication of the worse problems to follow if we don’t stop!


Similarly, by opening our borders to Muslims and other peoples who are very unlike the majority of us, we are setting up our very society, country, and civilization itself for future pain, destruction, and long-term ruination.  


So- close the border on Oxalates!  Start tracking how much you take in- go to SallyKNorton.com and see her tables of oxalates in various foodstuffs.  Start being mindful, and slowly cut back on these harmful foods loaded with oxalates.  


And similarly, close our nation’s borders!  Keep harmful people OUT.  Vote for Trump this election- that alone should be obvious.  In fact, vote ALL Republican- the party that ended slavery!  Take back control of our government by the people themselves, not the Big Government that also gives us the Food Pyramid, and Big Agriculture and Big Pharma and Big Medicine!!  


In our government, just as in our health- we should be assuming control over our own health and well-being.  Do not assign such weighty matters to BIG ANYTHING- do it yourself.  Remember- government should be small, and it should be made up of people just like ourselves.

The Carnivore Diet podcast review


 I just finished reading Paul Saladino’s well researched book The Carnivore Code.  This is not an ‘easy read’ type of book, and that is just as well, since he goes into great detail on all of the why’s and wherefores of following the ultimate no carb diet.   The reading is not easy or simple, since it is so deeply researched and explained, which is a strong plus for serious students of diet and nutrition.


The author is very convincing in his arguments, and is also well spoken, as I have also watched many of his YouTube videos and am a (permanent) subscriber to his podcast.  Even his podcasts and videos are long, and go into great depths.  Luckily, he is an entertaining and engaging character, and quite likeable.  Look him up- I’m sure you will be both entertained and instructed, as I was.


What I find both the most compelling and also the most difficult part of his book to incorporate is not his recommendation to cut out most vegetables, especially those with high oxalates (like spinach, kelp, and other leafy greens) and most nightshades (like tomatoes and peppers); no, it is his praising the merits of organ meats, like liver, heart, brains, and testicles…


I have experienced the downside of high oxalates in the somewhat recent past, where I got a kidney stone from ignorantly including beets and beet greens in my daily smoothies for several weeks!  I was like most people, thinking ‘greens are all good for us’, and knowing nothing of oxalates.  Let me conclude by saying that kidney stones are very painful, and something to be avoided at all costs!


There is a simple cure though- chanca piedra- which is an herb extract you can buy online, from a South American herb.  It dissolves the stone, quickly in my case- but only after several days of pure agony!  Just avoid the problem by avoiding oxalates- my smoothies are much less veggie laden these days.


But back to the organ meats- it is hard to make ourselves eat some of this stuff.    I think that liver is the most important and nutrient loaded organ, and I just eat liverwurst and braunschweiger with a few gluten free crackers frequently.   I actually like it in that form!


Sardines are another great way to include ‘head to tail’ carnivore eating, and not painful at all to consume.  Various pate’s are good as well, but it is also good to know that beef is king!  So good, and so very nutrient rich- people who avoid beef are the most misled people on the planet.  Only wealthy, spoiled first-world people can convince themselves to avoid wonderful foods like beef and instead eat ‘survival fall back foods’ like plants and grains on purpose.  Hunter gatherers always go right for the protein and fat- real food powerhouses!


So, like most things, I realize that Dr Paul Saladino and other members of the Carnivore club have lots of good information to offer.  As in the book by paleo guru Robb Wolf called Sacred Cow,  a big portion is devoted to showing how raising beef is anything but bad for sustainability and the environment, and is, in fact the only way to save our soil and return fertility to our earth.


So, what is my verdict?  Well, like the Keto Diet that has been the bee’s knees for quite a while now, I think that the Carnivore diet is a wonderful diet for a reset.  To address and autoimmune disease, either Keto of Carnivore is a wonderful option.  In fact, if I had an autoimmune disease or condition, I would immediately go carnivore until it resolved.  Then, I would add in food items, one at a time, and see which ones caused problems.  


If my arthritis, or diabetes, or any number of other conditions disappeared, I would carefully experiment to find out which foods could be included and not nudge me back towards sickness.  Because I realize that every single person is different, and what is poison for one of us, is easily detoxified by another.  Out job as ancestral people is to determine which ones are bad for us, and avoid them!


And also to find which foodstuffs best fortify us to look, feel, and perform at our very best.  And, of course, not only foods, but the best environment for ourselves and our family, with the best pure water, air, and nonstressful living area for us to thrive in and enjoy!  A place with dark nights and peaceful sleeping arrangements, and blessed with an abundance of unspoiled Nature.


A place without riots and protests, looting and burning is just as important as what we eat!  More about this in my next podcast. Which will look into the importance of living in small towns and cities, rather than our urban areas, which are rapidly proving themselves not only unnecessary in the age of the internet- but are actually becoming more and more hellish wastelands of crime, corruption, and pure evil!  


But for now, remember this: eat more meat and seafood, not less!  Use plants as a condiment for the most part, meaning sparing use to dress up what should always be the main course and focus:  Animal Foods!
