Step 7 – Synergistic Repairing
– by adding certain key components to ensure synergistic repairing and healing of the intestinal and colonic walls into your daily regimen, and also by adding a key component in helping you increase your energy levels and your libido levels (especially if those have been decreased as a consequence of steroids use, as in my case)
Step 7 – Synergistic Repairing
Adding L-GLUTAMINE powder
L-Glutamine is one of the most important nutrients for your intestines. Glutamine is the primary energy source for your immune system. It has the ability to “repair Leaky Gut Syndrome” by maintaining the integrity of the bowels.
Although L-Glutamine is an amino acid that is frequently used as a sports and fitness supplement, it has been found to help modulate the immune system and protect the mucosal protective layer in the intestine. Studies have demonstrated that glutamine can help improve blood flow in inflamed segments of the colon in patients who have ulcerative colitis, although its benefits did not extend to the most seriously affected portion of the colon (Kruschewski M et al 1998). Glutamine is also able to reduce leakiness of the intestine, which may help to reduce symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease.
There have been numerous studies done on Glutamine supplementation and its beneficial effects. Please see Scientific/Medical Studies page.
L-Glutamine is an amino acid that is the main source of energy for the mucosal cells that line the intestines, and helps them heal.
How do I take L-Glutamine?
I take it daily, mixed in my Morning Glory Shake.
Here’s the recipe for “Morning Glory Shake”:
- 8 oz. of Almond Milk
- 1 scoop of Pro-Optimal Whey Protein powder, chocolate flavored
- 1 Tablespoon of Chia Seeds
- 1 teaspoon of Maca Root Powder
- 3 scoops of Glutamine powder (approx. 15 grams)
Mix all the ingredients in a blender – on very low speed, as the amino acids in the Pro-Optimal Whey Protein are delicate and can easily be destroyed with heat (through high speed blenders which create heat), and enjoy. This “Morning Glory” shake is just delicious and so packed with all the nutrition you need, not just to start your day off right, but to help heal your immune system and colon.
Where do i get my L-Glutamine Powder
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and plays vital roles in muscle repair and recovery, as well as colonic repair. Optimum Nutrition’s Glutamine Powder is made from pure L-Glutamine and is flavorless, making it easy to mix!
“Awesome product! It’s pretty simple – only ingredient is glutamine. I take 1 scoop (5g each night before bed). When I first started taking it, I had much deeper sleep = more dreams = more REM = better recovery/energy levels. I got a bunch of my clients taking it, too. They experienced the same thing. It’s pretty affordable – certainly worth the investment.” by Daniel.

Adding Chia Seeds
Chia is familiar to most of us as a seed used for the novelty of the Chia Pet™, clay animals with sprouted Chia seeds covering their bodies. Little is known, however, of the seeds tremendous nutritional value and medicinal properties. For centuries, this tiny little seed was used as a staple food by the Indians of the southwest and Mexico. Known as the running food, its use as a high-energy endurance food has been recorded as far back as the ancient Aztecs. It was said the Aztec warriors subsisted on the Chia seed during the conquests. The Indians of the southwest would eat as little as a teaspoon full when going on a 24hr. forced march. Indians running from the Colorado River to the California coast to trade turquoise for seashells would only bring the Chia seed for their nourishment.
Chia Seeds Now Considered A Super Food
Because the question of what might be the optimum diet can, at times, be emotionally charged for many people, having had a significant emotional commitment in believing they know what’s best, here’s a “super” food that many agree on. It is known as the Chia Seed. Once valued so much that it was used as currency, this unique little seed has exceptional nutritive and structural benefits.
How Do Chia Seed Benefit Your Health?
Chia is an evidence-based registered variety of Salvia hispanica L. and is nutritionally superior to flax and soy. Chia is the richest non-marine whole food source of Omega-3 and dietary fiber currently known to man.
- Promotes Cardiovascular Health:
According to the American Heart Association, Omega-3 fatty acids can normalize blood pressure and bad cholesterol levels, while helping promote healthy heart and blood vessels.
- Assists Joint Function & Mobility:
With six times more calcium than milk, and with greater amounts of high-quality protein than the one found in soy, Chia also helps strengthen muscles and bones.
- Improves Digestion & Natural Detoxification:
Chia can absorb a whopping 12+ times its weight in water – flax seed only absorbs 6-8 times its weight. Chia´s insoluble fiber reduces digestive transit time and removes toxins as it passes through the digestive tract.
- Supports Healthy Weight Loss:
Chia´s high fiber content and its ability to reduce blood sugar levels after meals inhibits the appetite, thus making it the perfect food for healthy, effective weight loss. Thanks to its neutral flavor and color, Chia integrates seamlessly into any healthy recipe.
Chia Seeds Health Benefits Include:
- Contain the highest plant source of Omega-3 on the planet!
- FDA Approved.
- Heart Health
- Mental Health
- Digestive Health
- Great for Diabetics
- Effective for Treating Hypoglycemia.
- Chia Seeds contain more Antioxidants than blueberries.
- Chia Seeds are a complete protein with all 9 amino-acids.
- Chia Seeds are an excellent source of Calcium, Magnesium & Iron.
- Chia Seeds are 100% natural and raw.
- Most Chia Seeds are Kosher, NON-GMO & GLUTEN-FREE, look for Organic Chia Seeds from your supplier.
Chia Seeds are an effective aid to healthy weight loss. The fiber rich chia seeds and slowly metabolized carbs can help to curb the appetite and has been shown to help lose weight when included with a balanced and healthy diet.
Nutritional Benefits of Chia Gel:
If you try mixing a spoonful of Chia in a glass of water and leaving it for approximately 30 minutes or so, when you return, the glass will appear to contain not seeds or water, but an almost solid gelatin. This gel-forming reaction is due to the soluble fiber in the Chia. Researchers believe this same gel-forming phenomenon takes place in the stomach when food containing these gummy fibers, known as mucilages, are eaten. The gel that is formed in the stomach creates a physical barrier between carbohydrates and the digestive enzymes that break them down, thus slowing the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar.
In addition to the obvious benefits for diabetics, this slowing in the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar offers the ability for creating endurance. Carbohydrates are the fuel for energy in our bodies. Prolonging their conversion into sugar stabilizes metabolic changes, diminishing the surges of highs and lows creating a longer duration in their fueling effects.
One of the exceptional qualities of the Chia seed is its hydrophilic properties, having the ability to absorb more than 12 times its weight in water. Its ability to hold on to water offers the ability to prolong hydration. Fluids and electrolytes provide the environment that supports the life of all the body’s cells. Their concentration and composition are regulated to remain as constant as possible. With Chia seeds, you retain moisture; regulate more efficiently the body’s absorption of nutrients and body fluids. Because there is a greater efficiency in the utilization of body fluids, the electrolyte balance is maintained.
Example: Fluid and electrolyte imbalances occur when large amounts of fluids are lost resulting from vomiting, diarrhea, high fever, or more commonly from sweating. The loss of extracellular fluid occurs in these conditions. Intercellular fluid then shifts out of cells to compensate, causing abnormal distribution of electrolytes across cell membranes resulting in cellular malfunction. So, retaining and efficiently utilizing body fluids maintains the integrity of extracellular fluids, protecting intercellular fluid balance. The results of which ensure normal electrolyte dispersion across cell membranes (electrolyte balance), maintaining fluid balances, resulting in normal cellular function.
Hydrophilic Colloids for All Living Cells
Chia seeds are the definitive hydrophilic colloid for the 21-century diet. Hydrophilic colloids, (a watery, gelatinous, glue-like substance) form the underlying elements of all living cells. They possess the property of readily taking up and giving off the substances essential to cell life. The precipitation of the hydrophilic colloids causes cell death.
The foods we eat, in the raw state, consist largely of hydrophilic colloids. When cooked on the other hand, precipitates its colloidal integrity. This change in the colloidal state alters the hydration capacity of our foods to interfere with their ability to absorb digestive juices. If we were to eat a raw diet, we wouldn’t need to introduce the addition of any hydrophilic colloid to our diet. Uncooked foods contain sufficient hydrophilic colloid to keep gastric mucosa in the proper condition. But, even with raw foods, they must first be partially broken down by the digestive juices, beginning in the mouth and continuing through the upper tract, to allow the gelatinous reaction to take place. Because of this upper tract digestive process, those who suffer from slow digestion, gas formation, relaxed cardia and heartburn in which the burning is due to organic acids instead of an excess of the normal hydrochloric acid, which frequently accompanies chronic inflammation disease affecting such organs as the heart, lungs, gall bladder and appendix, are usually restricted from eating raw foods. A hydrophilic colloid incorporated with these foods may be used either in connection with the patient’s regular food or with whatever diet the physician feels is best suited for his patient. The patient with gastric atony or nervous indigestion who complains of heartburn and/or vomiting four to five hours after eating is often helped. There is a lessening of emptying time of the stomach and an improvement in gastric tone.
Chia Improves Digestion
Chia seed may be used in conjunction with almost any diet your doctor or nutritionist feels is necessary for your condition. The Chia’s hydrophilic colloidal properties aid the digestion of any foods contributing to the patients suffering as a result of a sour stomach. Even if you have sensitivity to certain foods, they may be tolerated with slight discomfort or none at all if a hydrophilic colloid is made a part of your diet. The positive effects on the digestion in the upper portion of the gastrointestinal tract often leads to puree their foods may find benefits from hydrophilic colloids which may lead to eliminating the necessity for pureeing. Even raw vegetables, green salads and fruits, which are largely restricted, may often be given to these patients with little or no discomfort after a short time.
There are several hydrophilic foods available that offer these natural benefits. Cactus juice, beet juice, agar, the edible seaweeds, and many proprietary preparations, which include the silica gels, mucilaginous substance of vegetables origin, are among colloids that prove effective. Each one of the above mentioned substances have one or more drawbacks. They are either too expensive, they may produce toxic side effects, are bad tasting, not readily available, have insufficient hydration capability or are indigestible.
Chia seed, a muscle and tissue builder and an energizer of endurance with extensive hydration properties, possesses none of the above disadvantages, and because if its physiochemical properties, supports effective treatment in immediate problems of digestion. Exactly why this should be true may be puzzling at first. However, if we consider the effect of unusual irritation upon the nerves of the gastrointestinal canal, it is reasonable they think that a less violent and more balanced digestion might quiet the activity of the otherwise hyperactive gut. Inasmuch as the same foods, which formerly produced irritation, may frequently be continued without harm when hydrophilic colloids are used. The relief to nerve irritation seems to offer a logical explanation.
The change, in the lower gastrointestinal tract, is due to the effect of the hydrophilic colloid and to a more complete digestion-taking place along the entire tract due to physiochemical alterations. Both factors are important, as there is undoubtedly a better assimilation of food that supports enhanced nutritional absorption while significantly extending necessary hydration as well as encouraging proper elimination.
Excellent Protein Source
As a source of protein, the Chia, after ingestion, is digested and absorbed very easily. This results in rapid transport to the tissue and utilization by the cells. This efficient assimilation makes the Chia very effective when rapid development of tissue takes place, primarily during growth periods of children and adolescents. Also, for the growth and regeneration of tissue during pregnancy and lactation, and this would also include regeneration of muscle tissue for conditioning, athletes, weight lifters, etc.
Essential Omega 3 Oil
Another unique quality of the Chia seed is its high oil content and the richest vegetables source for the essential omega-3 fatty acid. It has approximately three to ten times the oil concentrations of most grains and one and a half to two times the protein concentrations of other grains. These oils, unsaturated fatty acids, are the essential oils your body needs to help emulsify and absorb the fat soluble vitamins, A, D, E, & K. Chia seeds are rich in the unsaturated fatty acid, linoleic, which the body can not manufacture. When there are rich amounts of linoleic acid sufficiently supplied to the body through diet, linoleic and arachidonic acids can be synthesized from linoleic acid.
Unsaturated fatty acids are important for respiration of vital organs and make it easier for oxygen to be transported by the blood stream to all cells, tissues, and organs. They also help maintain resilience and lubrication of all cells and combine with protein and cholesterol to form living membranes that hold the body cells together.
Unsaturated fatty acids are essential for normal glandular activity, especially of the adrenal glands and the thyroid gland. They nourish the skin cells and are essential for healthy mucus membranes and nerves. The unsaturated fatty acids function in the body by cooperating with vitamin D in making calcium available to the tissues, assisting in the assimilation of phosphorus, and stimulating the conversion of carotene into vitamin A. Fatty acids are related to normal functioning of the reproductive system. Chia seeds contain beneficial long-chain triglycerides (LCT) in the right proportion to reduce cholesterol on arterial walls.
The Chia seed is also a rich source of calcium as it contains the important mineral boron, which acts as a catalyst for the absorption and utilization of the calcium by the body.
Dieters Dream Food
Chia, as an ingredient, is a dieter’s dream food. There are limitless ways to incorporate the Chia seed into your diet. Chia can be prepared with pure water before using in recipes. The seed will absorb 9 times its weight in water in less than 10 minutes and is very simple to prepare.
Food Extender/Calorie Displacer: The optimum ratio of water to seed, for most recipes, is 9-parts water to 1 part seed. One pound of seed will make 10 pounds of Chia gel. This is the most unique structural quality of the Chia seed. The seed’s hydrophilic (water absorbing) saturated cells hold the water, so when it is mixed with foods, it displaces calories and fat without diluting flavor. In fact, I have found that because Chia gel displaces rather than dilutes, it creates more surface area and can actually enhance the flavor rather than dilute it. Chia gel also works as a fat replacer for many recipes.
How to Make Chia Gel?
Making Chia Gel (9 to 1 ratio): Put water in a sealable plastic container and slowly pour seed into water while briskly mixing with a wire whisk. This process will avoid any clumping of the seed. Wait a couple of minutes, whisk again and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes. Whisk again before using or storing in refrigerator (Gel will keep up to 2 weeks). You can add this mix to jams, jellies, hot or cold cereals, yogurts, mustard, catsup, tartar sauce, BBQ sauce, etc… Add the gel, between 50% to 75% by volume, to any of the non-bake mentioned foods, mix well and taste. You will notice a very smooth texture with the integrity of the flavor intact. In addition to adding up to 50% to 75% more volume to the foods used, you have displaced calories and fat by incorporating an ingredient that is 90% water. Use as a fat replacer, for energy and endurance, or for added great taste, buy substituting the oil in your breads with Chia gel. Top your favorite bread dough before baking with Chia gel (for toping on baked goods, breads, cookies, piecrust, etc., reduce the water ratio to 8 parts water to 1 part Chia seed) for added shelf life.
There are additional benefits from the Chia seed aside from the nutritive enhancements when used as an ingredient. It was also used by the Indians and missionaries as a poultice for gunshot wounds and other serious injuries. They would pack the wounds with Chia seeds to avoid infections and promote healing. There is a wealth of benefits beyond the information outlined in this article and treasure-trove of benefits yet to be discovered. Chia seed, having a qualitatively unique situational richness along with a profound nutritive profile is one of man’s most useful and beneficial foods and is destined to be the Ancient Food of the Future.

Step 7 – Synergistic Repairing
Maca Root is also known as Lepidium mayenil.
What is Maca Root?
Often called “Peruvian Ginseng”, Maca is a unique root tuber with usage dating back to the mid 15th century. Natives of this area ate it raw, cooked or boiled and it became a staple in their everyday diet. Contrary to some literature citing its use some 2000 years ago to tout sexual stamina, this is hardly correct. Truth is, the rough terrain of this region made it difficult to cultivate food so most of the communities diet was dependant on wild gathered material, hence the Maca was incorporated into their daily food consumption. It resembles a radish and is actually a close relative as well. The growing conditions are very specific and it will only thrive in the glaciated slopes of the Andes with a prime elevation of 12,000 to 15,000 feet above sea level.
Currently the country of Peru is heavily subsidizing and studying the benefits of this root and several reports from educational and scientific institutions have showed significant: (120-200%) increases in sexual endurance, physical stamina, adaptability to stressful situations an increase in both the number and activity of spermatazoids (sperm).
Maca’s Primary Benefits
- Energy / Fatigue: Generates core energy in the body and mind; not an external stimulant like caffeine. Maca is invigorating and uplifting through a powerful and distinct nutritional profile.
- Menopause: This is a prominent use, gaining recognition worldwide. For many people it is very effective. Maca nourishes the endocrine system, balancing the manufacture of hormones naturally in the body. It does not act upon hormones directly, which is why it is so gentle and effective for this purpose. This concentrated gelatinized form is considered stronger than Black Cohosh, Chaste Berry, and Wild Yam for hormonal regulation purposes.
- Libido: Maca is marketed under this banner more often than not, as it is a powerful restorer and enhancer of libido. It is one of the few supplements that is equally effective in both men and women for this purpose. This gelatinized form contains much higher concentrations of the libido-enhancing compounds often touted by manufacturers.
- Impotence / Infertility: Maca treats impotence and infertility in both men and women. Maca is well known in Peru for it’s ability to ensure fertility in animals at high altitudes. It is prescribed for the same reason in humans, as it increases virility, oxygen transport.
- ADD / Stress: Through the concentrated power of it’s nutrition, Maca can help to enhance concentration and decrease stress, being a powerful tool in addressing attention issues. The owner of Skyfield Tropical has used it primarily for this purpose for many years, and recommends it often to others with similar issues.
- Malnutrition: Maca is remarkably nutritious, having a profile of highly bio-available nutrients akin to a good multi-vitamin. A gelatinized maca, in being free of fibers and most carbohydrates, is nearly 100% digestible, and is quickly assimilated. When dissolved into liquids, many of its active nutrients enter the bloodstream within 20 minutes of ingestion.
- Thyroid: Only gelatinized / cooked maca is being used to treat thyroid problems. Maca is also good source of iodine, which can assist in hypothyroidism. Raw maca cannot be used for this purpose, as it contains goitrogens which must be deactivated by cooking. Maca is a cruciferous vegetable, like broccoli or turnips.
While this information has not been thoroughly reviewed or studied much outside of Peru, the users’ testimonies for the last several years are notable.
Why Did I Start Using Gelatinized Maca Root Powder?
After having followed the doctor’s orders and taken the Steroids, that came along with all the terrible side effects, I did much research, and found Gelatinized Maca Root Powder. As an adaptagenic product, I found it balanced my endrocine system – which had been totally screwed up by the Steroids, and after 3 weeks of Maca usage, my period came back (after its 3 month disappearance from the steroid use). That’s when I knew my endocrine was being re-balanced. I also wanted something that would give me more energy, as I had been so fatigued and exhausted after the steroid use. I am very pleased with the results so far, and I can feel the Libido slowly returning as well (that was stripped away from the use of Steroids as well).
How Do I Take Gelatinized Maca Root Powder?
Since most of us with IBD, IBS, UC, and Crohn’s
have problems with sensitive stomach and digestion
in general, I would strongly urge you to use the
Gelatinized Maca Root Powder. WHY?
Gelatinized Maca is the best type
of Maca for anyone with a sensitive digestive
system. In the gelatinization process
Maca roots are boiled and pressurized to
dissolve most starch content. The resulting
Gelatinized Maca powder
is easier to digest than Raw Maca
powders. However, all of the enzymes are
destroyed and some of the
nutrients are altered in the process.
I’ve found great results with the Gelatinized Maca Root Powder,
and haven’t felt like I’ve been missing
out on nutrients.
This is a POWERHOUSE of Nutrients!
How Do I Take Gelatinized Maca Root Powder?
I take it daily, mixed in my Morning Glory Shake.
High in minerals:
High in sterols (6 found), up to 20 essential fatty acids, lipids, fiber, carbohydrates, protein, and amino acids.
The whole powdered or sliced root in either raw or roasted form.
The whole root can be eaten raw, sliced, cooked, boiled or baked. Currently Western users utilize it in the form of a medicinal drink made from the powder or, taken in the form of tablets, capsules, and as a liquid extract. It can be easily and safely sprinkled in culinary dishes.
Not much research has been carried out for this particular botanical out of its native country Peru, but several distinguished journals and scientists worldwide have supported what the Peruvian researchers have done and the preliminary studies they published. Maca root is being effectively administered to both men and women to help increase libido, men’s sperm activity, and to assist both sexes with issues regarding their physical endurance and threshold. Most Maca roots are being wildharvested and we foresee grave danger for the safety and sustainability of this botanical. Trial cultivation plots are under way; attempting to address the situation. With any luck we will see an increase of imported Maca from this source. As with all potentially endangered plants, consume consciously.
To date no record of any contraindications, adverse effects, or toxicity have been found.

Step 7 – Synergistic Repairing
D-Ribose is essential for production of ATP cellular energy.
That’s the critical reason to add it.
|D-Ribose Powder 150 grams (5.29 oz) Item Catalog Number: 00972|
|People suffering from cardiac and other debilitating health problems often exhibit severely depleted cellular energy in heart and muscle tissue, which can greatly impair normal daily functions.|
The primary source of energy for all cellular processes is a molecule known as ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Healthy, active cells constantly replenish their supply of ATP to produce vital cellular energy.100
However, under conditions of stress, injury, or aging, [or diseases such as Auto-Immune Diseases], critical body tissues such as heart and skeletal muscles cannot produce ATP quickly enough to perform optimally.
D-ribose, a carbohydrate molecule found in every living organism, facilitates the production of ATP.101
In studies of healthy athletes as well as those who have suffered injury to the heart muscle, supplying fatigued muscle cells with D-ribose quickly restored ATP levels to normal.102-104 By helping to rapidly refill depleted energy stores, D-ribose may be especially beneficial for people coping with cardiac and other problems marked by impaired cellular energy production.
D-Ribose Tablets and D-Ribose Powder can help speed energy recovery, increase energy reserves and maintain healthy energy levels in heart and muscle tissue.

5 out of 5 stars, D-Ribose Helps with Muscle Aches
“This is a fantastic supplement and I will continue to take it for life! I have severe muscle aches and spasms and this product seems to be very helpful in keeping the discomfort at a minimum. I know it works for me because I ran out one month and immediately noticed a difference in the way I felt. My muscles got very tense and achy by the third day without. I am very glad to discover that you have it available in capsule form now, too. I had a problem with my luggage on my last vacation flight to Florida. My luggage was held up for 2 days and I suspect it was because of the D-Ribose powder I had in my suitcase. The Airlines searched my luggage and I am almost sure it was due to the powder. Won’t take powder along again, even though it was in the original container. Have just ordered a bottle of the capsules just for my next trip.” L.M.- Milford, OH,
