WE MIGHT BE BETTR OFF THAN WE THINK : )
If anyone knows of a source for fresh frozen Grass Fed Beef (Cow) or Pork (Pig) Brains, please let me know. From what I have ascertained, Beef Brains are not available here in the USA due to Mad Cow Disease (BSE). This is the reason that is given by government sources. The current dominating offering for Pork Brains is from one vendor, and it is a Corporate Farm. In doing some research, it seems clear that that the reputation of this Corporate Farm is best described as Farm Factory. I must state that I have not personally visited any of their facilities. Again, there is plenty of easily accessible information about how this source of Pork Products operates. It looks like they they have a powerful lobbying presence in Washington, DC.
This source of Pork Products satisfies a huge demand for Pork from an audience of people that range from those who do not understand what Corporate Farming means and how they operate, those who do not want to know, and those who are so addicted to certain Animal Products that it might not matter to them. Then there are those, like myself, who are looking for a specialty item for medicinal reasons (Pig Brains), and presently have no other choices.
DUMBING IT DOWN
The use of words such as meat, pot roast, brisket, hamburger, hot dog, venison, pork, beef, steak, spam, salami, ham, head cheese, etcetera help keep people in the dark as to what they are actually eating. Commercials and packaging do not inform people of the conditions under which these animals are raised and slaughtered. Most notably is that Chicken, Turkey, Lamb, Rabbit, Fish are marketed by their actual names. Why? I have some ideas, but I am not exactly sure. Would love to hear from anyone who has their own theory.
I THINK I NEED ME THAT
Why am I asking for Cow or Pig Brains? Well, there is a medicinal reason for eating some of these gross meats. First of all, I think that all meats are gross. What supermarket has a Meat Counter called “Dead Animal Flesh Department”? Also, I can remember the last time I saw a storefront with the word “BUTCHER” blasted across it. The closest I have observed is CARNICERIA in communities with a large Spanish Speaking population. But back why eat the brains of a pig? Well, the description for Beef Brain Formula by Ancestral Supplements sums it up, “like supports like”. I think that statement is pretty self explanatory. Consider this, the consumption of of these Dead Animal Products (I am going to call them what they are) for regaining health (Medicinal Reasons) is way less wasteful than the gross / mindless consumption of meat on a daily basis. For most individuals, this unconscious eating happens 7 days a week, sometimes three times a day at McDonalds, Wendy’s, Burger King, Jack in the Box, diners, most restaurants, at home cooking. The list is long, and for the most part goes completely unquestioned.
IN ONE END AND OUT THE OTHER…
Part of the overwhelming amounts of non – biodegradable “stuff” that is dumped in our landfills is Adult Diapers. This is a very telling, and if thought about, a very telling comment on the health of adults of all ages, and our landfills. Yes, diapers are increasingly in use for adults, and not just for those who are incontinent, and the seriously ill of all ages. Check out the advertisements (here in the USA), and you will see that people in the commercials are from the very active to the elderly. I recently saw a commercial with a young male firefighter (late 20’s to 30’s, maybe an actor?) confirming the marketing of diapers to people of all ages, and walks of life. Okay, I understand that there are some emergency and medical situations where diapers are necessary. However, commercials are only produced if there is a potential, or existing audience. Sigh. I am truly not interested in shaming people for wearing diapers, but normalizing the wearing of diapers in these commercials? What a manipulation of consumers everywhere.
BACK TO THE BUTCHER
The bottomline, or close to it, is that consuming small quantities of these Organ Meats (for Medicinal Reasons) from animals has the potential to keep people of all ages in better mental and physical health. If people were actually eating for their health, there would be less gross consumption of meat on a daily basis. Are there other things people need to do to regain and maintain their health besides eating the organs of animals? ABSOLUTELY! Cleansing and rebuilding the body, which I cover in many of the 300 plus posts that I have written here.
ANCESTRAL SUPPLEMENTS IS ANOTHER OPTION
Desiccated Beef Brain is an option and is marketed by Ancestral Supplements. There is so little information about eating Beef or Pork Brain on the internet. I am sure anyone who is looking for either must know about Ancestral Supplements, and the Pork Brains available on the internet. The next option, that I have only begun to explore, is contacting ranchers independently on EAT WILD and asking if they ‘harvest’ (the irony of this word does not escape me) Brains from the animals they raise. Contacting each rancher one by one is somewhat laborious, but fortunately made possible by the internet.
Preparing, and cooking the Brains of Dead Pigs is very difficult for me. I am thrilled about doing this, but eating them has undeniably helped me in a short period of time. How? More mental acuity, stabile energy, optimism, less pain while healing arthritic hip joints. Eating these Dead Animal Brains (that is what they are) is something I am doing to regain my health and heal on a deeper level. Being foggy minded, arthritic, and depressed does not have to be part of life for a person of any age. The normalization and acceptance of dementia, and other similar conditions is on the rise. Most depressingly, the poor state of health of our fellow citizens is job security for a large segment of the working population here in the USA. The Medical and Pharmaceutical Industry and related businesses are some of the largest, if not the largest, employers here in North America. This is probably true in many developed countries around the world.
WISDOM IS NOT FREE
As I have written in previous posts, the elders of society were once considered the wise ones. There are still some examples of this in our world, but for the most part the elders of our community can be found, and I am not saying this disrespectfully, drooling on themselves in an easy chair, or in hospital bed. A darker scenario is the growing aging homeless population that is dying on the streets. Dying on the streets in a country that professes to be the wealthiest. What does that say about society, each one of us, at our deepest core?
DRUM ROLL PLEASE
In summing up, the condition of the health of our aging population I would like to use a word often heard come out of the the mouth of the current, 72 year old, President of the USA, and that is “SAD”. Pun intended.
