Medical Experts • Re: Benefits of Vinegar???

August 30, 2017 whitebear54 0

Time for an update. Two weeks ago my fasting blood sugar averaged around 163 and my A1C was 8.4.

I started taking a daily tonic of 1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar, 1 tbsp Blue Agave Nectar and a heaping 1/2 tsp Cumin mixed in with the nectar before adding the vinegar. Can’s say much for the taste other than it’s downable.

I started adding 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon to my now daily yogurt. Yeah, I know, taco tasting yogurt is NOT my favorite.

Within one week my fasting blood sugar count dropped to an average of 119.

Our garden has started producing again now that the worst of the heat has passed (only 102 yesterday) so fresh salads are back on the table with every meal.

i went online to MyFitnessPal.com and started logging every bite of food to keep close track of my daily calorie consumption. Journaling works, folks.

I started swimming 1/2 mile, 4 times per week.

Today my fasting blood sugar was 93 and it’s been in the 90’s for almost a week.

Cinnamon, Vinegar and Cumin with a bit of exercise and improved diet works so well I’m adding tumeric with black pepper, Fenugreek and a few other supplements to my diet.

I feel better than I have in months and am definitely on the right track to reducing my A1C and getting off some of the diabetic meds I’m on. Oh, and I’ve lost a couple of pounds. My caloric intake on MyFitnessPal is set for me to lose 1 pound per week. I know that doesn’t sound like much but so far I’m on target and if I keep this up for a year I’ll be below 200 pounds for the first time since I was 45–and that’s more than twenty years ago, folks.

I understand the idea behind LifeStraw and what I am seeing from the link provided for Survival Filter, light weight, ease of portability.

However, after last years drought, I completely switched to gravity filters. I can filter 3L of water in a few minutes, and take it with me. My range in between refills is increased, I am not dependent on keeping within a given distance from a water source, and I am a lot less likely to become a heat case in hot/drought like conditions.

I have a co-worker who is pro-LifeStraw. I asked him how long would it take him to fill a 16oz canteen using the suck and spit method? A 3L hydration bladder?

I agree with you completely. I have an AquaRain model 404 gravity water filter at home and I use it all the time. For backpacking or trekking in arid areas your method is best. But for those who find natural water sources the Survivor filter is terrific. You should have both. Drink with the Survivor filter when near water use your 3L bladder when not. It will make the water supply in your 3L bladder last longer. btw Is it a Camelback?

I’m very sorry for the inconvenience. Thank you for letting me know. I’ll get it fixed. What is supposed to happen is you get an email asking if you really want to subscribe. Once you click yes you can download the book. This is what is known as a double opt-in and it keeps people from signing up by accident.

Please let me know if you didn’t get that opt-in email. If your email address isn’t from a recognized provider or was entered incorrectly that can cause a problem too. Had that happen to a lady in Australia.

Books • Bugging In–What To Do When TSHTF and You Live In Suburbia

August 26, 2017 whitebear54 0

BUGGING IN: WHAT TO DO WHEN TSHTF and YOU LIVE IN SUBURBIA is now available.

https://www.amazon.com/Bugging-What-Whe … bugging+in

I have published the ebook on Amazon, Kobo, and many other places. I’m having trouble getting it up on iBooks because they want me to strip out most of the product/book/information links I included for the convenience of my readers. Boo iBooks!

I’m also working on getting it out in print form–a work in progress, but should be done within a week or two.

I priced the ebook version at 99 cents, but you can get it for free if you visit my author website and sign up for my free monthly Dying Time Newsletter. I will keep you up to date on all my writing projects while adding a dose of Prepper information.

http://www.RaymondDeanWhite.com

I hope someone out there will write a review of the book and post it on Amazon, here, and in the rest of the known universe. :)

Here’s the book blurb.

Your electrical power fails due to a storm, terrorist attack, EMP or other catastrophe. Hyperinflation leads to an economic collapse and food and medical supplies stop flowing to the cities. A pandemic spreads death around the globe.

This book offers specific, practical advice and instruction, as well as general guidelines you will have to tailor to your unique circumstances, to help you keep your family as relatively secure as possible. You will learn what to stock up on, what skills you should endeavor to acquire, and what actions you must take to give your family a chance at surviving the disaster and chaos that may strike at any time.

What if help isn’t coming? What if you have nowhere to go that is more safe and secure than your own home? What if bridges are down or highways clogged with stalled vehicles and you are forced to stay home? How would you provide for your family? How would you protect them?

If you have ever entertained those questions, this is the book for you.
