    Something smells Fishy!


    Ok ladies and gents!
    First i would like to give you some history on my life, then you will see where im going with this. ha.
    I was diagnosed with chrones disease when i was in 9th grade. I have been struggling with it ever since, until now. I have been on all sorts of meds. Pentasa, Remicade, Prednisone, etc. All of these meds suck, side effects and all. I based my life that these meds would fix my problem and "somewhat" change my diet to help with the inflammation on the ulcers. I was doing pretty good and regular bowels, until my g-paw passed which had stressed me out. Which from the stress, inflammation spiked. I was sent to the hospital and stayed there for a week till things "healed". This was about freshman year of college. Things had not been the same since then.
    Stress/Inflamation started taking over. Dry joints, anxiety, pressure in chest, pain in chest, high cholesterol, depression, catabalism etc. etc. I was feeling like crap. I thought my body was 60 yrs old.

    Then i started reading, i would reccomend these books for anyone. "the makers diet" and "anti-inflamation zone diet" similar to The zone diet. These books explain how there is silent inflammation through out the whole body that causes heart attacks, joint problems/arthritis, gastro intestinal problems, strokes, high colesterol etc. Silent inflammation which is mostly ignored then turns into "screaming" inflamation. This is when we start to notice problems, cause its "screaming". Ha, Dur. In both of these books they talk about how much a high omega diet helps ward off inflamation.
    "the makers diet" also explains how to fight mental and physical stress. Some of it is self explanitory. But the supplements that are made by Garden of life. Are amazing! The diet that is layed out for you is a cleansing type diet for 40 days. The diet is a HIGH Omega diet. Of coarse i have fish oil in my diet. The Fish oil is a concentrated type that is about 4g in a serving I take these 3 times daily. On top of this is olive oil imported, organic. Quality is alot more important. In my diet i basicall cut out breads and such. I get most of my carbs from fruit and vegies.
    I wanted to post this up to tell people about the company, books, diet. The diet and supplements are helping me out soooooooo much. I feel great. I actually feel how a healthy 21 year old should feel!
    I have seen many other posts about people preaching on how you should take fish oil. I just wanted to give my two cents, and preach also! If you dont want to buy the books. Then atleast try some fishoil in strong concentration. Whats there to loose. Plus the benefits are more than i can count on my hands and feet!. OH and plus im keeping my gains! apparently A high omega diet can be pretty anabolic. Now of coarse ask your doc first. I would not suggest it for peeps on blood thinning meds, So ive heard.

    Now if you seem sceptic about this. Even my blood results were pretty sweet. MY inflammation had dropped lower than i ever had since my diagnosis! I just wish i had known about all of this when i was in high school.

    I suggest for the peeps that dont believe me. Look it up, do some research. Im positive that you will find plenty of research to back up this stuff. Now if you want to be cheap on buying fish oil and start buying the costco economy package, 6000 pills for 4 bucks, (exadurated i know) just make sure to keep an eye on your mineral intake. All of those products are not pure fish oil.

    Also real olive oil is normally in a dark container. normally green. The light exposure ruins the quality. Your money really goes a long way on the product. Olive oil also should not be used for cooking. I would suggest coconut oil which is also full of omegas and does not get ruined when under heat. Olive oil i would use for shakes, cold products, or just by itself.

    I think i covered it and got it all down. I apologize for the bad spelling, real tired.

    Thanx for reading. God Bless.

    how come we shouldn't use olive oil in cooking?

    also coconut oil has omegas in it? i thought it was triglycerides that were the good stuff in coconut oil?

    I know we are told by so many people to cook it to help the food from not sticking! i think people are told mainly for the taste. But its pretty much nothing but empty calories after its cooked under extreme heat. this is what a read and told. Im not sure actually how it happens..... sorry boss but i was bad about this also.

    Teg bro, i really appreciate your post. Its also good to hear there are other guys who love to workout that have chrones also.... I am very sorry to hear that you have not found anything that will help. Remicade is an awsome drug, but you also hate it.... Pleeeeaassse read the book i suggested "The makers Diet" the guy that wrote the book had chrones disease. Alot of his products are made for chrones patients, but can be used for healthy peeps. The products help man. sooooo much. Atleast use them as a staple. Especially for somone that has chrones. He believe in herbal methods, and healthy cleansing. The name of the products are called "garden of life" Alot of quality behind them. Good luck bro. Keep me informed on how your doing man. But keep trying bro dont give up! im not on remission yet but im crossing my fingers.....

    Irregardless, it is still better than using regular cooking oil. That was the whole point in using it, I believe, but correct me if i am wrong on the matter.

    The bulk versions of fish oil at coscto is good, but, if you want a high grade of epa/dha balance, then buy brand that SHOWS the amount of EPA/DHA that is higher. Costco's brand is 1,000mg with only 300mg of PURE fish oil.

    That is basically 150mg per, at best, which is inadequate. You would have to take 2 pills 3 times a day to get the "adequate" amount of epa/dha. That's to much filler. Also, the fact that I can't split a fish oil pill gives me more of one than I really need because usually, most pills are higher in epa than dha. Or vise versa.

    Hey i understand fish oi; is fish oil. I think i will pass on the cheap kind though. This is just my opinion. I think its more quality maybe its all in my head, but i really dont think so. Since to make pure fish oil is an expensive process the product would be more expensive. SO thats why i buy the more expensive stuff. I get mine from the garden of life. or if i want pills i go to my herb store and buy the finest. you do feel the diff. Plus the price diff. ha about 32$ ouchies.....

    Yes that is true. it is better than regular cooking oil, by only so much. V. coconut oil beats the olive oil, and deff beats the regular cooking oil by a long run!

    Also with only a 150mg, that sucks. Thats a ton of pills! thats why i buy the more expensive stuff of coarse looking at how much im getting out of it too. Liquid is really the way to go. just gotta bare the taste.

    Well first off, im stoked to hear your feeling good brotha!

    Secondly, what are you waiting for? A log not only helps you keep track and get encouragement from others, but you get to learn from others, and others from you! You inspire, you create action and thoughts! Its a good thing bro and i cant stress enough about how good it is just to have one going so that you have guys that you can count on and then you wont want to dissapoint either, so you push even when you feel like your trashed, you just do it!

    My vote = DO IT, DO IT NOW!

    Yeah, that's what I was saying in that post, not to buy the cheap stuff...lol, but yeah, your right, the expensive stuff is WAY better than buying the cheap unless you don't mind downing twice as many pills a day as the expensive stuff..
    I recently started my dad (84yrs old) on vitamins and fish oils, and he says he feels great now...I KNOW his bowel movements are WAY MORE FREQUENT than they used to be...it went from 3 times a week to 2 times a day...so, kudos to the fish oils

    Secondly, what are you waiting for? A log not only helps you keep track and get encouragement from others, but you get to learn from others, and others from you! You inspire, you create action and thoughts! Its a good thing bro and i cant stress enough about how good it is just to have one going so that you have guys that you can count on and then you wont want to dissapoint either, so you push even when you feel like your trashed, you just do it!

    My vote = DO IT, DO IT NOW!
