Brussels sprouts are nutritious and delicious. A member of the cruciferous (aka brassicas) family, they offer several health benefits. Most notably, Brussels sprouts are powerful anti-cancer powerhouses.

Anticancer Benefits of Brussels Sprouts

According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and other sources, compounds in Brussels sprouts have powerful anticancer, antioxidant, anti-estrogen, anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory properties.[i] This is due to their high content of glucosinolates, sulfur-containing compounds that have been widely studied for their health benefits.

Diets rich in cruciferous vegetables have been found to inhibit and slow cancer growth in many cancer-cell lines, including breast, prostate, colorectal, esophageal, liver and lymphoma. Researchers attribute the benefits to the glycosinolates in Brussels, particularly sulforaphane and indole-3-carbinol. Notably, these glucosinolates help detoxify and eliminate cancer-causing free-radicals in the body. Sulforaphane promotes cancer cell death and inhibits cancer cell proliferation. It also supports the immune system and in particular, increases Natural Killer Cell activity.

Specific to breast cancer, studies show that Indole 3 carbinol helps to block estrogen receptors and restore receptor site expression to normal levels.[ii] It may act as a natural aromatase inhibitor and mimic tamoxifen or perhaps even perform more anti-cancer benefits than tamoxifen.

How to Enjoy Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts are still in season now, but you won’t see them for long. While available in many areas year-round, the peak season is from September to mid-February. Look for smooth, unblemished, small heads. Sprouts with spots of signs of withering may be past their prime will taste slightly musty and contain fewer nutrients. For maximum freshness, look for Brussels in your local farmer’s market.

Boiling is not really the best option for cooking brussels sprouts as the cancer-fighting glucosinolates are water-soluble and may be lost in the cooking water. Further, high heat may decrease the bioavailability of the sulforaphane in brussels sprouts. Certainly, I do not recommend microwaving.

The following recipe involves a low-heat method that preserves their great nutty flavor and bright color, but also the anticancer benefits of Brussel sprouts.

Brussels Sprouts with Pistachios

Serves 2-4

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons coconut oil

1 medium red onion or 2 small red onions or shallots

1-pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed

1/2 cup shelled unsalted pistachios

2-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • Separate outer leaves of the sprouts and reserve; thinly slice the inner core pieces
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over low heat. Add onions or shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes
  • Add the sliced inner core pieces of the sprouts and cook for 5 additional minutes, until soft
  • Add the sprout leaves and pistachios, and sauté until leaves begin to soften, but retain their bright color, about 3 minutes
  • Add the lemon juice and season to taste with fine-ground Celtic sea salt and fresh pepper
  • Serve and enjoy

Heart-healthy pistachios are rich in nutrients, a good source of protein, and packed with antioxidants. Onions are another anticancer powerhouse.

Don’t enjoy Brussels sprouts or out of season? You can take sulforaphane and indole-3-carbinol in supplements.

Like DIM, indole-3-carbinol is also known to be radioprotective, making it essential in today’s toxic world of technology. To read about more radioprotectors, click HERE.

Silver: The Antidote to Superbugs and EMF Radiation

In Cononavirus, EMF Radiation, Natural Antibiotics, Superbugs, Uncategorized on January 27, 2020 at 5:06 pm

Worried about Cononavirus and other scary bugs? The answer may lie in silver. Silver is not only an antidote to superbugs, but may well protect you from EMF (Electromagnetic) radiation.

Silver, A Highly Conductive Material with Healing Properties

Silver is a highly conductive material with healing properties. It has been used for centuries to treat various conditions, and was considered the most powerful antimicrobial agent available before the introduction of antibiotics.[i] It has been used both topically and orally.

Silver wound dressings have been used to treat local infections and prevent systemic spread, particularly for patients with burn wounds.  Used internally, colloidal silver is known to boost and maintain a healthy immune system. Silver has the ability to fight and destroy antibiotic-resistant super-bugs. Studies also show that colloidal silver induces apoptosis (death) of the cancer cells for many patients suffering from various kind of cancer, including MCF-7 human breast cancer.*  Find colloidal silver HERE.

Colloidal silver has been shown to be an effective holistic antibiotic against nearly all known bacteria and viruses. It comes in a handy, purse-size spray. Buy the spray HERE.

Silver-Lined EMF Blocking Tee Shirts for Men and Women

When ionizing radiation interacts with the human body, its energy is transferred to tissues, where a range of damaging biological effects, including cancer, can occur. Given we cannot avoid EMF radiation, shielding and mitigation strategies are necessary.

“The danger of radiation is always present, whether you’re in orbit, in transit, or on a planetary surface,” said Ruthan Lewis, a Goddard architect and engineer for NASA’s human spaceflight program. “From mitigation techniques to protection and enclosures, we’re considering this in every environment astronaut will be in.”[ii]

“As mentioned previously, ionizing radiation is a serious problem that can cause damage to all parts of the body including the central nervous system, skin, gastrointestinal tract, skeletal system, and the blood forming organs.”[iii]

A company called Lambs created a solution that would allow us to keep using technology without putting our health at risk or changing our habits. They made radio-protective clothing. According to the folks at Lambs, their newest item, Meteor T-shirt is the first garment inspired by NASA space suit technology. Since astronauts traveling in space are highly exposed to radiation (up to about 4,000 chest X-rays per trip) space suits were designed to be radiation-proof. Lambs used the same technology and integrated it into a T-shirt for men and women. The tees are embedded with a radiation-blocking layer of silver fibers. They are soft, lightweight, breathable, antibacterial, and UV blocking.

Right now, you can get these T-shirts for 25% off (only 1000 being sold at the discounted price), and the rest of their site for 15% off. They make awesome boxer briefs and beanies to protect your privates and your brain. Use this Link and code Elyn Jacobs.

Cononavirus is just one of the many viruses and superbugs threatening our health and our sanity.  EMFs from 5G and other technology are not going away.  Colloidal silver and silver-lined clothing just might be able to offer some countermeasures.

In your everlasting good health,

Elyn
