I love the Nutribullet.
Some things are a little bit harder to fully grind up. More liquid may need to be added. I used to let it grind awhile then give it a rest.
They come with recipe books using a variety of ingredients. :)
I loaned mine to my son in a different town so we still have the Vitamix.

What kind of ingredients do you like best in the drinks?

Walnuts, almonds, cinnamon, honey, cloves, zeolite, diatomaceous earth, whey protein, alfalfa powder, apple cider vinegar, molasses, cilantro, fresh mint, grapes, blueberries, apple, orange, orange juice, spinach, etc.
That sounds like a wonderful mix, but it also seems it would/could be a complete meal.  Is the Nutribullet thing sort of like a miniature blender?  I do recall yowbarb and others talking it up a while back.  Anyway, many, many heavy-duty nutrients!

ilinda, I agree - Jim's concoction does sound like it could be a complete meal. i think that could be good mid morning or lunch meal...

Repeating some things about coconut oil

Highlights of this article: #6 Coconut is high in the fat that your lungs need


Coconut oil is high in phospholipids and is also compromised of 100 percent fatty acids which are the best type of fat for the lungs.  According to Nancy, “Lungs work the best with the kind of fat found in coconut oil as opposed to the partially hydrogenated fats and oils from corn or vegetable oil which are found in so many of our foods.”

#7 Daily Coconut Oil Consumption

To get the maximum benefit from coconut oil Nancy recommends adding, “two tablespoons of coconut oil daily and one to two glasses of coconut milk,” to your diet daily

Coconut Oil for Asthma? Yes!

On December 7, 2012 ·

Nancy Guberti is a Certified Nutritionist and a metabolic and functional medicine specialist in Greenwich, Connecticut. She has helped numerous asthmatics significantly reduce their asthma symptoms and even cure their asthma. In her years of practicing Nancy has come to find distinct patterns in the asthmatics she treats.

These patterns are very high levels of candida and intolerances to wheat, dairy, gluten and soy. Nancy can perform functional tests on asthmatics to determine the exact levels of candida, food intolerances and other factors through a series of three functional tests: the first morning urine test, the food intolerance test and a full stool analysis test.

With or without these tests, Nancy will often work with her asthmatic clients to change their diet. According to Nancy, “Inflammation is the root cause of asthma.  What we see is when we remove inflammatory foods, it helps tremendously. The top inflammatory foods are dairy, wheat, soy, corn, whey and gluten.” Nancy notes that when her patients can follow this diet 100 percent they see dramatic results “in about two weeks.”

The good news is that the diet which will help reduce asthma symptoms significantly or even cure asthma is not just about eliminating things from your diet but about substituting things in your normal everyday diet with things that are very healthy and just as tasty (if not tastier). Coconut oil and other coconut products substitute easily for common every day foods and are extraordinarily healthy and healing for asthmatics looking for an asthma cure and/or home remedies for asthma.

8 things to know about coconut oil for asthma:

#1 Why are coconut products and coconut oil so good for asthmatics?

Asthma is a condition of internal inflammation that is caused frequently by high levels of candida and poor digestion in the GI track. According to Nancy, “studies show that the first sign of inflammation will occur in the GI track. If you think of your GI track as a bucket and if you put a cup of water in that bucket every time you eat food that causes inflammation, eventually that bucket is going to over flow and with most people the first place that inflammation goes to is to the lungs.”

Coconut oil is a natural anti-fungal and anti-viral which will fight the candida asthmatics so often have and it is also an anti-inflammatory that will help reduce inflammation in the GI track thereby lessening the chance of the inflammation from the GI track spilling into the lungs and causing asthma symptoms.

Lastly, coconut oil can helps naturally rebuild tissues broken down from the wear and tear asthma has on the body.

#2 Asthmatics can substitute coconut oil and coconut products for many things!

As Nancy says, “Fourteen years ago there were not the dairy substitutions that exist today.” Thankfully for asthmatics looking for relief from their asthma symptoms many every day products are now made from coconut products. If you are looking for an asthma cure or home remedies for asthma consider the following substitutions:
•Coconut oil in any instance where you would normally use vegetable oil
•Coconut ice cream instead of traditional milk based ice cream
•Coconut milk half and half instead of dairy creamer
•Instead of wheat, white or any other kind of bread eat coconut flour bread (or even almond flour or tapioca flour bread!)
•Coconut milk anytime you would normally use dairy milk (this includes in baking!)
•Coconut oil on toast instead of butter
•Coconut yogurt instead of traditional yogurt
•Coconut egg nog instead of traditional egg nog
•Coconut oil anytime you would be frying, stir frying or sautéing anything
•Coconut milk instead of evaporated milk

#3 Pick the best coconut oil and coconut products for asthmatics

Nancy recommends the brands So Delicious and Luna and Larry’s. Nancy notes that So Delicious “has unsweetened coconut milk” which she recommends to her patients over the sweetened version.

Nancy recommends, “Always go with organic virgin coconut oil products if possible because we do not want to put chemicals in asthmatics as they already have compromised bodies. You want to look for products that do not have additional toxins.” Nancy also recommends looking at vitacost.com, turtlemountain.com or sodeliciousdairyfree.com for coconut oil and coconut product options.

#4 Asthma inhalers can cause candida growth in your mouth, coconut oil can help eliminate it


Asthma inhalers can cause candida to form in the mouth which can then spread to other parts of the body including the lungs which will cause asthma symptoms. Coconut oil helps get rid of this candida.  [ Yowbarb Note: Inhalers need to be cleaned daily with warm water with a little vinegar in it. I use distilled vinegar for this use. Rinse with warm water and let it air dry. The times when i get into trouble are when i drop out this daily step, get careless and do not wash the inhaler. Sometimes i just don't think about it and realize later it's been awhile since I cleaned it. ]

#5 Do not refrigerate coconut oil

Coconut oil should not be refrigerated. In the cold months coconut oil will be a solid. In the warmer months it will be a liquid. Nancy notes, “In the winter when I put it on toast I use a knife and in the summer I use a spoon.”

#6 Coconut is high in the fat that your lungs need

Coconut oil is high in phospholipids and is also compromised of 100 percent fatty acids which are the best type of fat for the lungs.  According to Nancy, “Lungs work the best with the kind of fat found in coconut oil as opposed to the partially hydrogenated fats and oils from corn or vegetable oil which are found in so many of our foods.”

#7 Daily Coconut Oil Consumption

To get the maximum benefit from coconut oil Nancy recommends adding, “two tablespoons of coconut oil daily and one to two glasses of coconut milk,” to your diet daily.

#8 Other things asthmatics can do to aside from incorporating coconut oil in their diets:

Making the substitutions of coconut oil and products are important in reducing candida, reducing inflammation and rebuilding tissue. To further support asthmatic’s health and wellness Nancy also suggests:

1. Getting rid of dairy, wheat, soy, corn, whey and gluten in your diet.

2. Nourishing your mucus membranes and lungs with Nature’s Answer Mullein and Pau D’Arco

3. Taking probiotics. Nancy suggests probiotics from Klaire. Nancy loves Klaire’s products because, “there is no dairy or soy in them and they are alive. They are delivered to you in a gel pack. When you buy probiotics on the shelf at a health food store they are typically dead. I would look at 50 billion of a combination of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium.” Nancy does not like to overwhelm her patients with too many changes in the beginning, but if patients are ready for it, she recommends they start taking the probiotics when they start with the diet changes. Otherwise Nancy suggests waiting two weeks while getting accustomed to the diet and then beginning the probiotics.

4. Nancy also recommends finding a health practitioner that runs functional medicine tests who can support you on your journey to finding an asthma cure or find the best asthma home remedies for you. “Typically if you find a practitioner that runs functional medical tests it means they think out of the box and are willing to look beyond the breathing test for solutions for asthmatics. Nancy suggests looking for nutritionists such as herself, naturopaths or MDs. She then suggests emailing them or calling them to learn more about their approach.

That's a really important guideline for anyone dieting experimentally.  After going from a normal diet with intermittent fasting, to keto, to normal with fasting, and then to the sandwich diet with intermittent fasting, I discovered that my gut flora had suffered, and have worked to get that biome back on track.

Oh good ilinda, I hope it helps...
I repeated it , it was one of the first posts of this Topic. Re-reading it, the article outline in the post, I realized I had not applied much of it, not like I should have. This is Good stuff to know...

MISC thoughts:
Also I inserted a note in that post, (for anyone using inhalers)
Washing them daily in warm vinegar water, rinsing and air drying is important.

I am convinced at this point the coconut fat is helping me again...

I have not decided how important it is to cut way back on dairy. But I have read that for many decades...
I had read that the raw or as natural as possible butter actually helps breathing. Before that: Many years ago, I was taking care of my granddaughter from my oldest daughter, at her house when she was on vacation, while my youngest daughter, her hubby and newborn stayed there too, to get a little help. Oldest daughter had left raw butter in the refrig, which I normally did not have. I ate freely of it that week and my breathing improved.
Also I seem to have more strength when i consume a little dairy like some cheese, yogurt... so for me the jury is out on dairy.
I do know I cannot drink milk or my tummy gets like a drum, but modified cultured forms of dairy I seem to need... Another factor: I read that past a certain age older people need as much calcium as a kid, I will have to re-check that one.

Currently: I am experiencing relief just substituting the coconut cream.  No dairy in morning coffee.
Before my daughter gave me a case of the coconut cream the other day, had been having a dab of whole milk or when available some lactose free milk, in my morning coffee.
Part of my current relief is from having been on Prednisone for a week, which is a powerful and artificial solution. However: I do sense the coconut cream is giving me something vital, which ACTUALLY helps.

One thing I also recommend is portable air filter, in the office, living room, by the bed.

Rural environments can have quite a buildup of particles ... I love the country but there is a lot of stuff out there I cannot breathe for long. I sadly found that out as a young teen, visiting my cousin's sheep ranch... I loved it there so much. As a child I always intended to have a ranch and raise horses. I can probably do it now (live in a rural survival location) with the current meds if I can stockpile enough of them, or get healthier...
First rude shock was about age 11, a Girl Scout horseback riding trip and long, long ride on a straw truck. Awful allergic reaction. Got through it without a bit of medical help or medicine. Did not see that coming, since I used to ride horses as young kid.

Then at age 16 thought I could deal with a horseback riding date, I do think I was in initial stages of anaphylactic shock. My father had to go pick me up from the date. He drove me home, I had to lie down on the back seat, I wasn't able to communicate very effectively, so my parents did not realize how serious it was. I felt like I was going to croak, did not see a doctor just went to bed and it passed.
Maybe I could tolerate it now... ? Ridiculous how many creatures I tested allergic too, all the ones I wanted to have all around me:  horses, goats etc. Hay grass and all of it. Probably underlying conditions I just need to try harder to get rid of...  Bless those healthy people who have none of these problems. May THEY spread their genes far and wide. :)   :) 

Going in and out of barns, mud, dirt, good to filter it out of the indoor air.
The portable Hepa filters are not terribly expensive... Not sure the best ones, currently,
well, just some more ideas.

Sorry if this is too negative... in future survival situations I hope there are ways to help people who suffer from these conditions...
God willing, people will gt healthier in the long-term.

Many Blessings,
 
- Barb T.

Yours is not a negative post, but is informative.  Many people don't realize how many allergens are out in the countryside, where spring pollen is wafting all around, from first one species, then another, and another, etc.  It seemingly never ends.

Then hay and straw are full of dust, even if little pollen.  Dust is a powerful trigger to coughing.  Hubbby never hauls hay without a mask, and never cleans a goat shed without a mask, and he's not an allergic type person. 

One reason I feel that dairy has been given a bad rap is because of the changes in dairy between the beginning of the Industrial Revolution and now.  Long ago, people drank raw, 100% organic milk, whether from goats, yaks, sheep, cattle, etc., and they also made butter from the raw, organic milk.  Fast forward to the 20th Century and beyond, and we find homogenized, pasteurized milk, and some of it is even contaminated with genetic engineering such as bovine growth hormone, or the animals are fed genetically mutated foods such as Roundup Ready corn or Roundup Ready soy.  Thus, there is a HUGE differennce between milk consumed by humans 200 years ago, and grocery store milk drunk by humans in 2019.

Congratulations on the coconut cream.

Hi again, ilinda, thanks for the feedback, and for your ideas. :)
I feel the dairy you are consuming is probably the most natural wonderful type of milk.
I am glad about that. :)
Yes, there is a big difference between the dairy of today and what our forebears drank. I often forget about that...
Only those on farms or who go out of their way to consume the right milk, specially purchased will get the same health benefits.

It gives good practical knowledge to know that wearing a mask is done a lot in the farms (at least on your farm) and I am glad about that too.
So happy your husband is not an allergic person, that is a real Blessing.

I used to be far more careful about nose masks, I need to use them regularly again when dusting, sweeping etc.

All The Best,
Barb T.

R.R. Interesting to know...
Do you recommend a certain brand of probiotics? I used to get good results form some liquid  from the health food store. Sometimes I "drop things out" because not made of money...
Some things are just so basic though, have to keep taking them...

Barb, I also omit some supplements at times to stretch the budget, and have learned from past experimentation that probiotics should be one of the ones not to skip.  Anyone with lung problems may also want to take probiotics faithfully, as they knit a lining over all mucous membranes, including the lungs.

I always try to purchase one labeled for a count of tens of billions of live bacteria, whichever brand is handy, reasonably priced, and either refrigerated or preserved in a gel-pack for long shelf-life.

Of course, adding yogurt or fermented veggies to the daily diet helps ensure getting some living cultures, and on rare occasions when my stomach has been especially irritated, I'll find kefir and drink an entire quart over the course of an hour, in lieu of a meal.  :)

R.R. wow I did not know that about the benefit to the lungs from the Probiotics. Thks!!
It makes sense that it would help the lungs. :)
I do feel one reason why my COPD flared up I got careless about keeping up with all the vitamin-mineral grinding up and taking (I cannot swallow the ginormous supplements, the way they are made now) but the main thing might be my neglect of Probiotics and having run out of yogurt a lot... I do mix the ground-up supplements in with yogurt or cottage cheese. Works really well and if I add the chewable natural Orange Vitamin C tablets, it makes the mixture really tangy and yummy, too. Note: The orange chewable Vitamin C also helps mask the taste of oils, and oils can also be added into the yogurt or cottage cheese mixture.

It is too easy to neglect something like Probiotics, but once a person realizes how vital it probably is maybe they will try harder to remember. :)
