BETHEL, ALASKA—saima, coltrane and i came here to bethel yesterday to go visit my dad and the rest of my family. its a great visit home so far.
anyway, i took coltrane to my dad’s room so that he can see his grandpa (his uppa). my dad was so happy to see us—he was telling coltrane how big he was, how cute he was and how much he resembled his dad. for a bit there, coltrane started getting teary-eyed and shed some tears.
later i asked coltrane why he cried when he was with his uppa. coltrane said because his uppa was saying good things about him and that made him happy—so happy he shed some tears.
to see my son shed some tears with joy is a powerful thing. that shows me coltrane, a 7-year old boy, has higher-order thinking. my son is a great kid. i’m glad he got to see and spend time with his uppa.
no problem pekfigutkaq. (i don’t know what you said there pekfigutkaq, but i figured out you’re speaking saint lawrence island yup’ik—that much i know. please let me know how you did sealing in southcentral alaska)
(NaturalNews) The liver and the gall bladder don’t get enough attention until it’s too late. Poor health, bad digestion, and low energy are usually the products of toxic livers and clogged gall bladders. Then surgeons remove gall bladders or put patients in line for liver transplants. But the liver/gall bladder system can be rejuvenated and restored by detoxifying, nurturing with herbs, and improving the diet.
There are two detox applications one can do home alone: One is the gall bladder flush, and the other is the coffee enema. It’s recommended that one does not do the bladder flush without consulting a health practitioner. Existing large calcium stones may be painful when expelled.
Here’s one example of the basic procedure. Fast on organic apples or apple juice for a few days to soften gall bladder stones or congealed fat globules. The malic acid from the apples does this, enabling the purge to occur easily.
The day of the purge, abstain from food from mid-afternoon on. Around this time, take a strong laxative, such as a tablespoon of Epsom salts in warm water. Upon retiring, drink a well blended mixture of cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon or grapefruit juice. The mixture should be 50/50 in a full eight ounce glass to be consumed rapidly just before bedtime.
Before falling asleep, assume a fetal position on your right side. Upon arising, take another laxative. The morning stool should contain some little green hard globules with perhaps a gnarly variety of other sizes and colors. One experienced source recommends doing this once a month for three months and observing the results with your health condition before starting another three month series.
There a few variations of this basic method. One uses an herbal tincture to soften the stones for anyone with blood sugar problems instead of apples or apple juice. Some are less drastic than the one gulp olive oil citrus juice mixture.
The sources below will give you some other approaches for creating the gall bladder flush to eliminate at least some stones.
The coffee enema was used to lessen the pain of wounded soldiers during WW I due to morphine shortages. It was picked up by Max Gerson in the 1930s as part of his cancer curing regimen. It’s also used today by Dr. Nicholas Gonzales of NYC, who is continuing Donald Kelley’s pancreatic enzyme therapy for cancer patients.
It can be done easily at home. Gerson’s and Gonzales’ clinics administer coffee enemas daily. Obviously, if your health is not terrible, daily isn’t necessary. Regular enema equipment is used, but the solution is drip or fine grind coffee boiled in a cup of water then cooled down to body temperature. The coffee should be organic, non-flavored, but high in caffeine.
It’s the caffeine that stimulates the liver ducts without entering the liver. Generally, the lighter the roast, the higher the caffeine content. There are light brown blends available. You lie on your right side for the coffee enema, not on your left. Assume the fetal position as you hold in the enema content for as close to a half hour as you can. Then eliminate.
It’s also a good idea to use milk thistle and dandelion root as daily liver tonics. Milk thistle has been used for liver detox and protection from toxins for a couple of thousand years. The liver is responsible for cleaning out toxins from our blood. But we’re responsible for ensuring the liver is not overwhelmed with toxins.
one of my favorites….me and my buddy ess were caribou hunting one fall on the kobuk river. we spotted a herd swimming across the river and i shot 4 in the water as they were swimming. ess was driving, so i was so the designated shooter.
the ‘last’ one ran up on the beach and ess said to me, "leave it alone, its already gone." sitting in front of the boat, i took one quick look at the caribou and saw that i could take the shot.
i ran to the back of the boat and took my .243 out of the case, looked to see where the caribou was and took the shot. the run to the back of the boat, to take my rifle out of the case and then take the shot took like 5 seconds? the caribou dropped where it was standing.
after gathering the 4 caribou in the water, i went up to the 5th on land. i hit the caribou about 1/2 inch below the right eye, which was bulging out its socket. this shot was fast and apparently very accurate. i was impressed with the quick shot. it was a blessed day on the kobuk river.
"Colorectal cancer incidence among Alaska Natives has been the highest among all racial and ethnic groups in the United States.”
“Age: The chances of having colorectal cancer go up after age 50. More than 9 out of 10 people with colorectal cancer are older than 50.”
Q: but, what is colorectal cancer? A: Colorectal cancer is cancer that starts in either the colon or the rectum. Colon cancer and rectal cancer have many features in common. They are discussed together here except for the section about treatment, where they are discussed separately.
please get checked. ask your provider about colorectal cancer. become more aware.
i have to tell you that i turn 36 tomorrow, wednesday, and it makes my heart hurt. i feel older now and it doesn’t feel cool. i mean, i felt great at 30 and 35, but 36 is another story.
i’m officially closer to 40 now. 36 is old. wow. i think this ‘older’ feeling is a combination of turning 30 and 35—i felt fine and great during those birthdays. its not such a smooth transition into 36. whoa.
i’m just happy to make it this far. life could’ve swallowed me up years ago, but i’m still here—still ticking. i have a purpose for still being here. not exactly sure what it is, but there’s a plan and i’m in it.
it is going to be a good day. happy birthday to me. ;)
i often think about how hunters, back in the day, went on with their lives with limited vision. were they successful in bringing home game? how much did adequate vision contribute to their quality of life?
the reason i ask is because i wear contacts. i would have poor vision if it wasn’t for glasses and/or contacts. without corrective lenses, i wouldn’t be able to see very far. with my contacts, i have eagle vision.
my dad’s mother was widowed when my dad was very young. as a result of this death, my dad’s family had no hunter and their main source of income (hunting) was cut-off. this is why my dad’s cousins said their family was ‘poorest of the poor.’ thinking about this fact of life, i bet you that my dad’s father lost his life to an accident out in the wilderness.
as you may know, the open country is unforgiving. just as it gives you life, the country can take yours just as quick. to this day, i am thankful for safe travels on my hunting expeditions. i’ve had some very close calls, but the country has been good to me.
i think about how hard it must have been for my ancestors, and people in general, to go about their daily lives on the land without the ability to see 20/20. i am thankful for good eyesight. i am thankful for good eyesight and the ability to spot game from afar. don’t take your vision for granted.
I'm so sorry for being such a dick. I just thought you were killing them for fun or something. I thought you were just pulling the guts out and leaving everything there. And you're probably thinkin' you should have gotten your facts straight. So, yeah I agree, and I'm really sorry for coming at you like that.
shaymaloogan, my facts are straight. “i thought….” statements make it very clear that you’re assuming this and that. assumptions will get you in trouble—don’t assume anything.
hello. i don't know who you are, but the image displayed on your tumblr of 'the biggest thing you've harpooned' fucking disgusts me. its people like you who are killing our marine life and making this world worse than it needs to be.
i hope something bad happens to you.
go and fuck yourself also.
i’m boyaq. i’m a hunter and i harvest animals from the land and sea. Alaska Native hunters are the first 'environmentalists' and are stewards of the land and sea.
it is my hope that i educateignorant people like yourself to a way of life that has sustained our people for thousands of years. have a good day ‘gonetotown.’ i wish no ill will to my fellow human beings.
“the trail to hollywood has been broken. and april 26th is the day we arrive to participate in the great whale harvest…..God bless us. so let it be written, so let it be done.”—allen beaver, kotzebue resident and fellow johnny aiken’s whaling crew member
Tell me what the fuck is your purpose in slaughtering seals and whales. What the hell is the point of it, why do you do it. What do you do with it after you're done cutting it up huh? Do you just leave it there?
i harvest seal and whale to feed my family and others in the community. we cannot survive without harvesting sea mammals from our garden, the ocean.
we cut them up these tasty treats, cook them, hang them up to dry and put them in the freezer.
what the fuck is it to you, shaymaloogan? thanks for visiting eskimo power.
