How to Make Kefir



I have added Kefir to my daily diet, because of it's Amazing Healing Powers!
Did you know this drink can cure depression, reverse diabetes, and even stop cancer growth? Our body is 10 percent human and 90 percent bacteria, both good and bad, Kefir acts as a detox getting rid of the bad bacteria. Kefir has 30 to 40 thousand healthy bacteria colonies that replicate inside your intestines, unlike yogurt, which does not replicate and only has 1 trillion good bacteria per cup! But, you don't have to believe the 2000 years of history about this magical drink, just try a good batch, ideally from raw goat milk and you will feel a new happy level in 10 minutes. I cannot get enough of it, now drinking 3 cups a day, so much now that am going to have to stop putting honey in it to stay thin! :) I am excited to share this drink with you, because it means you will be here with me until we are 130 years old, it's the drink of Super-Centenarians! Above is my How to Make Kefir for Beginners from scratch. Love Kelly!

Below is a very interesting theory about Cancer being caused by bad Bacteria, which is also my theory!

Kefir extracts suppress in vitro proliferation of estrogen-dependent human breast cancer cells but not normal mammary epithelial cells.

Abstract

Anti-tumorigenic effects have been demonstrated in animal studies from the intake of kefir, a traditional fermented milk product believed to originate from the Caucasian mountains of Russia. In the present study, the antiproliferative effects of extracts of kefir, yogurt, and pasteurized cow's milk on human mammary cancer cells (MCF-7) and normal human mammary epithelial cells (HMECs) was investigated at doses of 0.31%, 0.63%, 1.25%, 2.5%, 5%, and 10% (vol/vol). After 6 days of culture, extracts of kefir-fermented milk depressed MCF-7 cell growth in a dose-dependent manner, showing 29% inhibition of proliferation at a concentration as low as 0.63%, whereas yogurt extracts began to show dose-dependent antiproliferative effects only at the 2.5% dose. Moreover, at the 2.5% dose, kefir extracts decreased the MCF-7 cell numbers by 56%, while yogurt extracts decreased MCF-7 cell proliferation by only 14%. No antiproliferative effects of kefir extracts were observed in the HMECs, while the yogurt extracts exerted antiproliferative effects on HMECs at the 5% and 10% doses. Unfermented milk extracts stimulated proliferation of MCF-7 cells and HMECs at concentrations above 0.31%. Peptide content and capillary electrophoresis analyses showed that kefir-mediated milk fermentation led to an increase in peptide concentrations and a change in peptide profiles relative to milk or yogurt. The present findings suggest that kefir extracts contain constituents that specifically inhibit the growth of human breast cancer cells, which might eventually be useful in the prevention or treatment of breast cancer.

Want Proof That Cancer Is The Result Of Microbes?


Cancer Microbes
How do I know cancer is caused by microbes and fungus?  Well, let’s go over some astounding coincidences for starters.
I could go on listing every antimicrobial known to man and show the same linkages between antimicrobial activity and anti-tumorigenic activity.  Of course, I’m not the only one to notice this conspicuous linkage. A recent article in Science Daily notes:
Professor Michael P. Lisanti, Director of the Breakthrough Breast Cancer Unit…was inspired to look at the effects of antibiotics on the mitochondria of cancer stem cells by a conversation with his daughter Camilla about his work at the University’s Institute of Cancer Sciences.
His new paper, published in Oncotarget, opens up the possibility of a treatment for cancer, which is highly effective and repurposes drugs which have been safely used for decades…
…Professor Lisanti said: “This research makes a strong case for opening new trials in humans for using antibiotics to fight cancer. Many of the drugs we used were extremely effective, there was little or no damage to normal cells and these antibiotics have been in use for decades and are already approved by the FDA for use in humans. However, of course, further studies are needed to validate their efficacy, especially in combination with more conventional therapies.”
Basically every antibiotic on the planet has anticancer properties.  It took until January of 2015 for one research team to connect the dots between antibiotics and cancer.  It took me one weekend of using Google to come to the same conclusions before I even saw Dr. Lisanti’s paper.  If you want to cure cancer, it must be treated as if it were an infectious disease – in fact, that’s the title of Listani’s paper.

Of course, it’s been well known for decades now that certain viruses are capable of creating cancerous lesions.  To quote Wiki, “Worldwide, the WHO International Agency for Research on Cancer estimated that in 2002, 17.8% of human cancers were caused by infection, with 11.9% being caused by one of seven different viruses.”  Does it seem like a stretch to say the remaining 82% may be caused by fungi and bacteria, which are also capable of transfusing and altering genes?
Just because we may not be able to see an infectious source in a microscope doesn’t mean it isn’t there.  It’s entirely possible that infectious sources, such as viruses or fungal spores, may be so small that they cannot be seen through an optical microscope.  Of course, we often do see fungal infections in conjunction with cancerous tumors.  Researchers chalk these fungal infections up to being “opportunistic” infections, rather than the underlying cause of the cancer.
This 2006 paper on bacterial infections and cancer notes that:
An overwhelming body of evidence has determined that relationships among certain bacteria and cancers exist. The bacterial mechanisms involved are as yet unclear. These gaps in knowledge make it impossible to state the exact progression of events by which specific bacteria may cause, colonize or cure cancer. 
Did you know that the prostate cancer PSA test detects for a substance that is produced by five different tumor (ascomycete) forming fungi?  According to FungalBionics, written by A.V. Costantini, MD, 1998, “structurally the PSA molecule is a 33-kiloDalton serine protease (an enzyme), which was found to be produced by the molds Aspergillus flavus, A. fumigatus, A. oryzae, Ophiostoma piceae, and Scedosporium apiospermum, all of which are sac(ascomycete) fungi.”  (here’s the proof for you science geeks)
In other words, the PSA test doesn’t test for prostate cancer, it tests for a kallikrein family protease that is created by fungus.  The PSA test is actually testing for a fungal infection.
For those who may be suffering with chronic prostate problems, such as chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome, it’s worth noting that often times antibiotics fail to treat the condition. Recent research has shown fungal infections can mimic all the symptoms of a bacterial infection or prostate cancer.  Patients who don’t respond to conventional treatment may do will with a course of antifungal medication:
A NYT’s article notes that:
Call it the arrow of cancer. Like the arrow of time, it was supposed to point in one direction. Cancers grew and worsened… But as a paper in The Journal of the American Medical Association noted last week, data from more than two decades of screening for breast and prostate cancer call that view into question. Besides finding tumors that would be lethal if left untreated, screening appears to be finding many small tumors that would not be a problem if they were left alone, undiscovered by screening. They were destined to stop growing on their own or shrink, or even, at least in the case of some breast cancers, disappear…
…“The old view is that cancer is a linear process,” said Dr. Barnett Kramer, associate director for disease prevention at the National Institutes of Health. “A cell acquired a mutation, and little by little it acquired more and more mutations. Mutations are not supposed to revert spontaneously.”
Would someone please explain to me how genetic “damage” can suddenly reverse itself?  Are scientists invoking magic to explain this?  They must be, because it’s not possible given the “cellular damage” hypothesis that’s all the rage these days.  Of course, if cancer is caused by an underlying infection, then remissions suddenly become easy to explain.
Previously I wrote that cellular damage will never result in additive novel properties emerging in cellular behavior. If I take a strand of DNA from a cell and destroy a few random pieces of that DNA chain, then pack it back in the cell, the cell will never gain any new abilities from this damage.  Damaging a cell will never cause it to suddenly replicate itself in an out-of-control fashion, or suddenly give it the ability to avoid dying, because these are additive new novel properties.
Damage can only result in increasing entropy.  A billion monkeys banging on keyboards for a hundred years will never write the encyclopedia Britannica, and a billion random bits of damage to 3 billion DNA sequence pairs will never result in an immortal super-replicating cellular organism.  The “damage” that causes these abilities to emerge in cancer cells has to be intentional and directed.  The “damage” has to be caused by a living entity making intentional changes to its environment that leads to what we observe to be as cancer.
Home remedies for cancer, such as vitamin C, coniferous oil, mushroom extracts, vitamin D, hash oil, etc.. etc.. all display antifungal or antibacterial properties.  The reason why they work is because they help the body clear the underlying infectious disease responsible for causing the cancer.
People get “metabolic” diseases like cancer in the first place because their diet lacks proper nutrients and the fiber necessary for the body to fight off infections.  The reason why smokers get lung cancer is because cancer causing microbes live on the tobacco leaves and the carcinogenic toxins in the smoke reduce their body’s ability to fight off those microbes.  It’s never about the damage caused by carcinogens directly, it’s about their effect on the body’s ability to fight off infections.
Exercise also alters the chemical balance of our body making it more difficult for infections to take hold.  It is a well known medical fact that exercise reduces your chances for getting an infectious disease.  This is also why your odds of getting cancer (which is an infectious disease, not a “metabolic” disease) decrease with exercise.  In fact, your odds of getting any “metabolic” disease decrease with exercise precisely because exercise creates an inhospitable environment for bad microbes.  It has nothing to do with exercise altering a person’s metabolism, and everything to do with creating an inhospitable environment in the body for harmful microbes.
Consider that if cancer was caused by genetic mutations, exercise should have no impact on your odds of getting cancer whatsoever.  If lung cancer from smoking was caused by carcinogenic mutations, running 8 miles a day should do absolutely nothing to decrease your odds of getting lung cancer, right?  Of course, we know that is absolutely not the case.  Exercise dramatically reduces a smokers odds of getting lung cancer (or any other type of cancer).
Did you know that a Mediterranean diet, rich in fruits and vegetables with only small servings of whole grains and meats, can cut your chances of getting heart disease by half?  Guess what else it prevents? – cancer and brain diseases.  Isn’t it odd that a change in diet can effect cancer, brain disease and heart disease all at the same time?  Perhaps that’s because they all have the same underlying cause.
In fact ANYTHING that reduces your odds of getting an infectious disease also reduces your odds of getting cancer (or any other “metabolic” disease).  Did you know that meditation can dramatically reduce your odds of getting a cold?  Guess what else it prevents?  Heart disease and cancer.
For those of us looking for a cure to cancer, there is no “one” cure because there is no one singular source of microbial cancer causing infection. It appears that a wide variety of microbes may cause cancerous lesions.  Just as there is no one singular antibiotic that treats all bacterial infections, there is no one singular antimicrobial that treats all cancerous infections.
I think the vast majority of cancer diagnoses are actually fungal infections.  I talked about antibiotics at the beginning of the article, but please be aware that excessive antibiotic usage, many of which are produced from mold or fungus like penicillin, dramatically increases your chances of getting cancer.  Many antibiotics are also antifungals, which is why they show positive results.  The focus should be on antifungals, not antibiotics.
Take a look at this 2001 study on aspergillosis (fungal infection) in cancer patients:
Diagnostic Difficulties
There are no truly conclusive, rapid, and accurate tests to confirm a diagnosis of invasive Aspergillus infection. Therefore, the diagnosis is absolutely dependent upon a high level of clinical suspicion for susceptible patients, as described in Table 1 of Dr. Bow’s article.
The early use of computed tomography (CT) scanning of the chest or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the sinuses can provide strong clinical evidence of infection in the proper host. These tests should be ordered without hesitation in high-risk transplant or leukemia patients with suspicious clinical findings. Pulmonary CT findings include patchy consolidation, pulmonary nodules [looks like cancer], cavitary lesions [looks like cancer], or a “crescent” air sign. A “halo” sign is particularly suggestive of aspergillosis in a neutropenic or bone marrow transplant patient.[5] In one investigation, early CT scans performed in febrile neutropenic patients with x-ray infiltrates [looks like cancer] and probable invasive pulmonary aspergillosis identified halo signs in 92%, thus reducing the time to diagnosis of invasive pulmonary aspergillosis from 7 days to 1 day.[6] Improved response rates (as high as 72%) were documented as a result of the earlier diagnosis and initiation of therapy in this study.
The best method of curing cancer is to keep your immune system healthy so that you don’t get attacked by it in the first place.  Diet and exercise people – you better start taking it seriously.
For you spiritual folks, I get a kick out of reading near death experiences.  I found this one to be particularly interesting:
I have lost much of what I saw, but I held onto the main idea of what I was being told while moving over the planet.. or rather having a movie OF the planet being shown before me….  There were fields of crops all over, in specific.  As I would zoom in and get close, for instance, to a field of wheat, I would be told, “This has been poisoned.  The food has been altered and poisoned.  It is no longer pure.  The people are consuming impure food.  This is death.”  I felt sad and concerned about this and wondered why… or how it was possible.  How could a field of wheat or corn be “poisoned”… and WHY?!  I was told that man should return to the Earth or death would ensue everywhere.  It was said again and again during this scene to “Return to the Earth.” I was told that upon my return, that I should look for pure food, unadulterated.. and only consume that which is “clean,” but I dismissed this somewhat, because I had no intention of returning.
Fungal aflatoxin infecting wheat and corn crops (poison), along with GMO seeds that contain self-producing insecticides (altered)?
Dr. Lonnie Herman lays out the medical literature linking cancer to microbes and fungus:

If those lectures piqued your interest, listen to this former oncology nurse explain why she left the oncology profession and became a nurse who specializes in alternative medicine.  She talks about her first hand experience with seeing people heal themselves of cancer using several different kinds of alternative treatments, along with diet and exercise.  In particular, she talks about ozone therapy and vitamin C therapy, both of which are extremely potent antifungal treatments:

    My Top 10 Anti-Aging Tips!




    My Top 10 Anti-Aging Secrets: Hint hemp oil is my only face cream! :)

    1. Diet, replace one meal with a green juice and try Goat Milk Kefir with 2 tablespoons of raw honey, for taste. I do not mix the honey, I leave it thick in the kefir and spoons some out with each bite, like a special sweet drink treat!

    2. Exercise daily

    3. Create, in work and play, that stay busy feeling for well-being. Idle thoughts are negative thoughts.

    4. Skin Products, Hemp Oil is my body moisturizer. It is sold in the cold section of Wholefoods Market for under $20. dollars, Dead Sea Soap is my make-up remover, for under 5 dollars. And I use Honey for all my hair products.

    5. Bi Phasic Sleeping, is the body's natural sleep pattern.

    6. Toxic Free Clothes, bra free when possible

    7. Drink a 1/2 Gallon of distilled water daily, unless juicing.

    8. Open a window when you sleep, for clean air.

    9. Relationships: Trust yourself and others. When you change your belief that others can be trusted, they act according to your beliefs about them. A quick mantra is “I live in a safe universe.”

    10. Wash all your produce in very warm water to get the bug spray off, and eat as live diet when possible.

    "Honey, I bought a Farm"..... making a Wish!


    By Kelly Granite Enck
    We drove down a street, called Street, the mood was dreamy... fog, purple mountains, acres of beautiful farmland— suddenly, I saw it, a lot of land, over looking "preserved farmland".... "Here's to the fools who dream". 

    Pennsylvania leads the nation in the number of farms and acres permanently preserved for agricultural production. The program guarantees a future food supply and contributes to a healthier economy.

    Tonight, David and I meet the owner of the lot, who is also a builder. The lot is a package to build a farm and buy the land. As Crazy as this may seem, I love the idea of over looking farmland, horses running freely, and crops crowing up all around me. It's a bit of stretch to buy this package. But, if dreams have meaning this place is home.  The last time I had this feeling of my dream world... mixing with reality was on a hike with my son. Join me...play movie below...

    People's Climate Movement— Environmental March April 29, 2017


    By Kelly Granite Enck
    Behind me is what's left of protected land, they call it Land of the Thunder Dragon, or Bhutan. This is the only place on earth untouched by the "industrial revolution." The land has been protected by the King of Bhutan, only 7,000 visitors a year are allowed into the country. You write a letter telling the King why you want to visit and if he agrees, you will receive an invitation from him. You must also pay for your entire visit up front, tour, hotels and even your return airline ticket out of the country. This is to protect the land. The gross national product from Bhutan is "Happiness."

    The King tried to keep television out of the country, but some poor looser in a global society forced Bhutan to allow television. Stating that it was not fare to the people to be cut off from the news of the world, Ugh!  The only thing the tv is being used for sadly, is to teach kids about war and guns, as they are no longer playing outside, but inside playing on video games.

    Trump's new plan is to bring back jobs by creating an oil pipeline from Canada through America. But, this will only create more earth quakes and polluted air and water. And cause more unemployment when the pipeline is completed in three years. Those that voted for Trump believed in the illusion that Trump was going to fix all their problems.

    If Trump had been "forwarding thinking" he would have created technology schools and offered no interest student loans. We need more educated people in solar energy, labs for cancer cures, and schools for an education in IT. Even if he wanted to deal in oil, why not find other means to get the oil from Canada to America, like trucking it. At least that would not be digging up earth. The Oil Executives hands are getting greased by money, but at what price? It is all temporary, except the damage we will do to the earth for future generations.

    I spent two blissful weeks hiking in the Himalayas and the friends that I made there are now posting on Facebook, horrified that the Pipeline, cutting funding off to the EPA and NATO is going to pollute the world. They are asking us to stop this backwards thinking, which will kill the biodiversity of the Earth, which will eventually kill man. We can help by marching in the Environment March on April 29, 2017.  This may activate Congress to vote against the pipeline and vote to protect the funding to the EPA and NATO. Join me on a hike through Bhutan, by reading my memoir—"From Hollywood to God".

    Women's March 2017 : John Lennon's "IMAGINE" comes to mind when I think about the Women's March



    John Lennon's "IMAGINE" comes to mind when I think about the Women's March of 2017. Over 4.2 Million women marched for 'Women's Rights' in the United States, but what surprised us all was how many women from all over the world showed up, from Poland, Ireland, Paris, and Canada. They even march in Africa to support our fight against the Trump administration, who wants to take our rights away. The faces on the Indian women in New Delhi said to me, this Historic Day has changed us all and it has brought hope to our future daughters. We have united as one and we have all felt the mass cry for love, Imagine how this could spread. #WomensMarch2017

    Is Caffeine an Excitotoxin and Bad for our Health?


    I am giving up Caffeine for New Years and this goal may be one of the hardest thing I have ever done, because I love my morning high when I have a cup of Joe. But, I  have a desire to get in the best shape ever and coffee is getting in my way. I remember making a sick joke, that if San Francisco had an earthquake I would be walking over bodies to get to a cup of coffee. That is how hard it's hold is on my desires for more. 

    There are experts who say that caffeine is an excitotoxin, which "excites our cells to death." Yikes!
    I have been on the "raw food diet" for eight years, eating 75 percent of my diet live produce, like green juice and raw vegetables and fruit. This is the sexiest, I've ever felt on this diet.  Now,  I look for new ways to improve on this natural high I have felt. I read Dr. Amen's book, "Unleash the power of the female brain."  He says we should give up Caffeine all together, it's not health. I am trying to replace coffee with filtered water, which promises to unleash the power of my brain!!! :)

    I have been drinking half my weight in ounces of filtered water. Dr. Amen is a Psychiatrist and a Neuroscientist, who is tired of doctors giving out drugs before correcting the overall problems, like our diet and hormones. The brain is the control center--everything starts with how much oxygen is getting to it. I am looking forward to experiencing my brain in 30 days, which is the magic number to real results. Today is day one, cold turkey on coffee, and alcohol.

    Dr. Amen says every brain is different, depending on our exposures to toxins, healthy food or nurture or lack of— in childhood. He writes of a technique called ANTS in the brain, Automatic Negative Thoughts. In this process you name the thought, Blame, which takes your power away...Guilt Beating...ect. It's fun to look at thoughts and categorize them. I can dismiss them when logic is added. He said that the new hero in the future world,  will be the one with an IQ of a Million, not the one with a million dollars. Yet, I can imagine that you could have both with a sharp brain. According to Dr. Amens giving up caffeine and alcohol is the start. Here I go...:)

    CAFFEINE CHEMISTRY


    [CAFFEINE METABOLISM]


    Caffeine disrupts the time neurons work and rest.)

    Unlike cocaine, amphetamine, morphine, alcohol and nicotine, caffeine does not activate dopamine release (to D2 receptors), in the "pleasure centers" (the shell) of the nucleus accumbens, which are associated with addiction. The "addictive" properties of caffeine seem to be almost entirely connected to withdrawal symptoms.

    IWith long periods of wakefulness adenosine accumulates in neurons as a result of ATP breakdown. Adenosine from inside the neurons is transported across cell membranes into the extracellular space. The A1 receptors of the basal nucleus neurons are particularly sensitive to the increased levels of adenosine, which increases potassium ion influx thereby hyperpolarizing (inhibiting) those neurons. Adenosine also reduces the activity of GABA neurons in the basal nucleus, thereby disinhibiting neurons in the preoptic/anterior hypothalamus which promote Slow-Wave Sleep (SWS) [BEHAVIORAL BRAIN RESEARCH 115:183-204 (2000)].

    Caffeine promotes wakefulness by opposing all of these actions of adenosine — blocking the adenosine receptors. Additionally, the neurons in the raphe nucleus, locus coeruleus and caudate nucleus are all very sensitive to the ability of caffeine to block the inhibitory infulence of adenosine [BRAIN RESEARCH 858:71-77 (2000)]. For these reasons caffeine is particularly effective in opposing the sleep-inducing actions of adenosine. Caffeine blockade of adenosine action, reduces sleepiness while also impeding learning and memory [BEHAVIORAL BRAIN RESEARCH; 193:79 (2008)]. Caffeine even reduces "sleep" in fruit flies in a dose-dependent manner [SCIENCE; Shaw,PJ; 287:1834-1837 (2000)].
    Caffeine increases attention & vigilance and lessens feelings of weariness. Caffeine enhances learning in maze tests in which animals are not rewarded, but makes no difference in tests that include a food reward. Caffeine reduces the tendency to become bored by a repetitive stimulus [BRAIN RESEARCH REVIEWS 17:139-170 (1992)]. Caffeine might therefore seem well suited for those working at night, driving long hours or working with hazardous equipment — and may save lives.
    Adenosine levels rise during ischemia/hypoxia and this effect is thought to counter the detrimental effects by providing substrate for ATP synthesis and reducing excitotoxicity through agonist actions of adenosine on A1 receptors. 

    General blockage of all adenosine receptors by caffeine worsens ischemia/hypoxia, primarily through blocking the A1 receptors. Caffeine worsens reperfusion injury from neutrophil accumulation in vascular beds — an effect normally opposed by adenosine action on A2 receptors.
    Preconditioning with caffeine a few weeks prior to ischemia — with caffeine discontinued prior to the time of ischemia — can reduce ischemic damage as a result of increased number of A1receptors due to habituation/tolerance. Taking advantage of caffeine in an actual clinical/cryonics situation would be difficult because the timing of ischemic episodes & clinical death cannot be predicted — and the half-life of caffeine in a normal adult is roughly 5 or 6 hours.
    Caffeine can significantly increase the secretion of gastric acid & pepsin. But coffee — even decaf — has an even stronger effect. Apparently there is a non-caffeine component to coffee which has a significant effect on gastric secretion.

    ref-A very thorough review of the effects of caffeine on the brain can be found in  [PHAMACOLOGICAL REVIEWS; 51(1):83-133 (1999)].)
