Organic Beets Can’t Be Beat


By Atom Bergstrom

According to Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) …

“Beetroot is a good food for people who easily get worms. When the beetroot gets to the intestine, the worms get upset; they are paralysed and are then eliminated in the stools.”

According to the same source …

“Beetroot does not poison us but it poisons the worms. And again the situation is, and you can find this out, that plant roots eaten at full moon have greater power to drive out worms.”

This advice was given in 1924, before the advent of nitrogen fertilizers, so using organic beets is important.

Beets are addicted to nitrogen, and suck it up and overload on it like gangbusters.

Beets are nitrogen accumulators, along with alfalfa, amaranth leaf (not the grain), celery, corn, eggplant, lettuce, oats, radish, sorghum, spinach, wheat, etc.

Unprincipled or misled health gurus are claiming that nitrogen accumulation is a good thing, and the basis of the performance-enhancing effect of beet juice.

The power behind the drone of beets is its natural sugar — twice as much as corn, carrots, or tomatoes, according to Mother Earth News, Apr. 2004.

Nitric oxide used to be a primary pollutant in photochemical smog — now it’s supposed to be a longevity agent, protecting blood vessels, reducing inflammation, and inducing penile erections.

It’s exactly the opposite.

Nitric oxide is a free radical extensively involved in the aging process, including inflammation, high blood pressure, and “boner kill.”

The takeaway is …

Beetroot is an awesome food as long as it’s not grown with nitrogen fertilizer.

Half the world eats foods spawned with nitrogen fertilizer. It’s a boon for the fracking industry, but a plague upon the Earth.

      Today, when a banker takes your house away, you have only two choices …

      1) leave the premises

      2) take your banker to court and lose your house anyway

      A century and a decade ago, in the Deep South, you had three choices …

      1) leave the premises

      2) take your banker to court and lose your house anyway

      3) pinch your banker’s nose and have a 50/50 chance of keeping your house

      Pinching someone’s nose was an egregious insult and a challenge to a duel.

      If your banker lost, you kept your house, according to the Southern Rules of Honor.

      The Rules of Honor were concretized by John Lyde Wilson (1784-1849), the 49th governor of South Carolina, in his 1838 book …

      Peer-reviewed immunologists aren’t even an also-ran when it comes to Dr. Emanuel Revici.

      According to him, an acute “digestive defense mechanism,” or (1) “enzyme phase,” occurs no later than three-and-a-half days.

      A (2) “lipidic phase” occurs in the first six to nine days, with seven days as the optimum defense response. The fast reacting person is vulnerable to death if this defense mechanism occurs faster than six days, and the slow reactor is vulnerable to the same if the reaction occurs after nine days.

      A third defense mechanism occurs in about 28 days, the (3) “lipido-proteic antigenic” defense mechanism, or “coagulated antibody phase,”

      A fourth and final defense mechanism occurs in about six months, the (4) “proteic antigenic” and “protective” defense mechanism, or “globulinic antibody phase.”

      “Think of how much information, in the form of radio energy, there is flying through the air, all around us, all over the world, right now and all the time. AM, FM, UHF, VHF, shortwave radio, television, CB radio, walkie-talkies, cell phones, cordless phones, telephone satellites, microwave relays, faxes, pagers, taxi calls, police, sheriff, hospitals, fire departments, telemetry, navigation, radar, the military, government, financial, legal, medical, the media, etc., etc., etc. Trillions and trillions and trillions and trillions of separate little bits of electronic information flying all around the world through the air at all times. Think of that. Think of how busy the air is. Now realize this: A hundred years ago there was none. None. Silence.” — George Carlin

      As the great George Carlin put it: “Don’t sweat the petty things and don’t pet the sweaty things.”

      Timing is great on this. I just got 10 lbs from trader joes and they are great to eat at night. I’m eating 1 bag a day for at least 10 days. Red pee. I don’t mind. Live life for the exception to the rule.

      Future blog idea. Can you please explain the attitude or mental block of people who have a fear of leaving the house since the bathroom is not nearby. Atom, is this related to what you call the ‘poop chakra’?


      • February 24, 2016 @ 2:10 am Atom

        1) Red pee is from “beet red” (betalains).

        My suggestion is to cut back a little on your beet protocol until you drop your stomach pH, increase your intestinal absorption, AND/OR improve your iron absorption, etc.

        It’s usually a minor and often temporary situation.

        2) Toilet phobias usually associate with the “poop chakra.”

        One form of it peaks at 28 years, and diminishes thereafter.

        It’s now on my “future blogs list.” :)

          Hello AtOM,
          What about red ‘poop’ from beets?
          Hugs from downunder,


          • February 27, 2016 @ 7:43 pm Atom

            Both red pee and poop are caused by unabsorbed indole-based pigments called betalains.

            They have much in common with the pigments in the potent chemo drug known as the “red death” or the “red devil” (doxorubicin).

            Fortunately, betalains are also anticarcinogenic, but don’t have docorubicin’s gruesome side effects,

            Betalains DO have side effects (not carcinogenic ones) when eaten in large amounts at the wrong time of day.

            Betalains (to my present knowledge) are only found in Growth Zone 3 evening foods — beets, cactus pear fruit, and specific mushrooms.

      Patrick Timpone mentioned your blog about beetroot on Facebook. I wanted to know if beetroot is effective in killing worms only in the raw form or if it works that way if cooked or fermented also
