I'd like to connect with a qualified nutritionist who can help with the planning for this concept
. For example what kind of things to eat at different times of day to maintain the highest energy and have the deepest sleeps.
I would appreciate it if anyone is or knows a nutritionist would would be happy to volunteer to help me out.
HI I have found DR Mercola site totally informative.Just google
Dr Mercola and sign up for free daily health
letters.Be prepared to give up sugar now known to be a toxin in the human body amongst other things like frying food
in canola,sunflower and olive oils which when heated become toxic.Use coconut oil
/butter and dairy butter (free range of course if you can find it)instead for frying .Honey used sparingly is a great sugar substitute and is really great in tea/coffee.Not too much though as it also contains fructose which is the real culprit of the sweeteners.Honey will incidentally last indefinitely and is also a wonderful substance to help avoid infections by placing it directly on a wound .It kills germs like crazy!!We all know where a bad infection far from land can go.Ends up possibly on having to throw you over the side as a means of getting rid of a useless member
of the crew.Anyways do get Dr Mercola's news letter .He also sells some really amazing remedies etc though I have not spent a cent with his company yet.One of the best things you can have on board are fermented vegetables in sealed bottles as they will give your gut flora just what they need to keep your gut functioning optimally.For those not in the know regarding that aspect of our bodies the gut's health
is as important as your brain health and they rely on each other for optimal functioning of the body. The Doctor is brilliant and a great and influential critic of that awful GLYPHOSATE which permeates everything nowadays and is killing the soil microbes which are so necessary to a healthy plant and it's fruit.He is totally opposed to the awfully inhumane practices of the present day farming methods giving rise to super bugs within the industry due to overuse of anti biotics.He totally supports GMO labeling and ORGANIC food
production.He really is a leader in his field and has many enemies in the food industry due to his honesty and in depth
analysis of various aspects of the food industry which so readily poisons us for PROFIT .
The company Monsanto is his pet hate and not surprisingly when you see who and what they are and do.Shocking to say the least.The same company responsible for creating agent orange which killed and still kills and was used extensively during the Vietnam
The dying off of bees the pollinators so essential to some of our most nutritious food supplies is another huge cause for concern which they just will not acknowledge as having anything to do with their products.SAD indeed.
