Where did the old adage “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” come from anyway? Much of the apple’s health-promoting power is found in the skin. Studies show that the flavonoid quercetin, found within the apple’s skin, is a potent free radical that is able to kill viruses like herpes and boost the fighting capability of other antiviral compounds. Quercetin is used clinically to ease inflammatory conditions including prostatitis, pancreatitis, gout; and allergic problems such as hives, hay fever and asthma.

The Liver

Standard

20131008-210637.jpg

The body contains many organs, but not all as are vital as the liver. The liver happens to be the largest organ the body contains, which regulates over 900 functions within the body. Its weight is about 4 pounds, and carries out extremely complex chemical changes within the body. The liver can suffer a tremendous abuse; however there are six main things that the liver cannot cope with.

1. Over-eating: this is the perfect way to damage the liver.
2. Eating and drinking wrong things. Certain things we eat gash the liver and poison it.
a. Refined white flour- products
b. Processed foods
c. Junk foods
d. White sugar products
e. Imitation food these are super toxic.
3. High carbohydrate and fat diet.
4. Food poisons: alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, theobromine, hard drugs.
5. Taking medicinal drugs. As the liver has to work overtime in order to try to excrete these dangerous chemicals.
6. Associate closely with insecticides, preservative, cumulative poisons.

Anti cancer vegetables

Standard

#1 Anticancer Vegetable
There are two superfood classes of vegetables most adept at blocking human cancer cell growth in a petri dish.

[In 2010] a landmark study was published, pitting 34 common vegetables against 8 different types of human cancers. Breast cancer, brain tumors, kidney cancer, lung cancer, childhood brain tumors, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer, and stomach cancer.

Let’s look at breast cancer—I’ll cover up the. What’s being measured is tumor cell proliferation. Here’s the control. You drip some water on a human breast tumor, and nothing happens—it’s still powering away at 100% growth rate. And these 7 vegetables appear useless against breast cancer, no different than placebo. But these 6 cut the cancer growth rate in half. And these 5 at the end stopped cancer growth completely—stopped these tumor cells dead in their tracks.

Coffee enemas

Standard

Basic Coffee Enema Procedure and Recipe

The very last part of the colon, before reaching the rectum, is in an “S” shape and called the sigmoid colon. By the time stool gets to this part of the colon, most nutrients have been absorbed back into the bloodstream. Because the stool contains products of putrefaction at this point, there exists a special circulatory system between the sigmoid colon and the liver. There is a direct communication of veins called the enterohepatic circulation. Have you ever felt sick just before having a bowel movement, when stool material has just moved into the rectum for elimination? As soon as the material is evacuated, you no longer feel sick. This is due of the toxic quality of the material and the enterohepatic circulation coming into play. Because of this, it is important to evacuate when you have the urge. The rectum should usually be empty.

This circulatory system enables toxin to be sent directly to the liver for detoxification, rather than circulating them through the rest of the body and all of its vital organs including the brain. This system of veins carries rectal / sigmoid toxins directly to the liver for detoxification.

When a coffee enema is used, the caffeine from the coffee is preferentially absorbed into this system and goes directly to the liver where it becomes a very strong detoxicant. It causes the liver to produce more bile (which contains processed toxins) and moves bile out toward the small intestine for elimination. This seems to free up the liver to process more incoming toxic materials that have accumulated in the organs, tissues and bloodstream. The coffee does not go into the systemic circulation, unless the enema procedure is done improperly.

The coffee contains some alkaloids that also stimulate the production of glutathione-S-transferase, an enzyme used by the liver to make the detox pathways run. It is pivotal in the formation of more glutathione, one of the main conjugation chemicals, enabling toxins to be eliminated via bile into the small intestine. So in other words, a coffee enema speeds up the detoxification process and minimizes the backlog of yet to be detoxified substances.

Coconuts for life!

If You Ever Wind Up On A Desert Island, You Won’t Have To Bring Any Medicines

With millions of Americans unable to maintain insurance payments, there has been a tremendous surge in interest in natural healing. Even those who are fairly well versed in alternative healing modalities are stunned to learn the latest on a very affordable oil that was used for thousands of years, before the anti-saturated fat campaigns wiped it from our consciousness: Coconut Oil.

Coconut oil has so many health benefits it’s hard to know where to begin. This video features Bruce Fife, doctor of neuropathy and author of Coconut Oil Miracle, speaking about the staggering results of cancer research conducted over many decades, showing that mice exposed to cancer via carcinogens ALL got cancer, EXCEPT the ones who had been given coconut oil. It is a very potent anti-cancer remedy that every single person can take for pennies a day.

What is in coconut oil and why is it so powerful?

Coconut oil contains three medium chain fatty acids, lauric, caprylic, and myristic acid. The dominant one is lauric acid, which has potent anti-viral activity, and is in human breast milk. The human body converts lauric acid to a derivative called monolaurin (which can be purchased as a supplement) which is THE substance that protects infants from viral, bacterial, protozoal and other infections. Research done in the early 1980s showed that monolaurin also had a virucidal effects on RNA and DNA viruses, as well as bacteria, yeast and fungi.

Many emerging schools of research today posit that cancer and many other illnesses are fungal based, so maybe that is why coconut oil protects against cancer.

Coconut oil has been credited with the following:

Broad spectrum virucidal that debilitates viruses associated with flu, herpes, and more.

Kills bacteria that cause ulcers, throat infections, urinary tract infections, gum disease and cavities, pneumonia, and gonorrhea, and other diseases. Kills fungi and yeasts that cause candidiasis, ringworm, athlete’s foot, thrush, diaper rash, and other infections.

Apple Juice Therapy

Standard

apple-juice

Dr John Christopher:

As one of the greatest herbs and blood purifiers known, we have the most common fruit, the apple with over 2000 varieties. The chemical breakdown of the apple shows why it has such great value in healing. As Dr Edward E states in his Advanced Treatise in Herbology:

There is no other remedial herb in the whole range of known therapeutic agents that can compare with the apple tree, and although it would be difficult to say which of its many varieties is the greatest, we suggest that its abundance of nascent oxygen compound is probably the main reason why it is such a precious food, blood purifier, and unfailing remedy for so many forms of disease (307).

Fresh apple juice is best, if obtainable, otherwise buy any bottled apple juice that has no preservatives or additives, pure apple juice.

After beginning with sixteen ounces of prune juice first thing in the morning, within one half an hour take an eight ounce glass (regular size tumbler full) of undiluted apple juice.

Swish each mouthful with saliva mixed with it.

Juice must not be gulped. In this way the full value will be obtained and there will be no danger of regurgitation or having it act as an emetic to a weak stomach, but will be very soothing and affable. This procedure will also work well with the pancreas in case of high or low sugar level, with no bad side effects.

Drink two litres of apple juice a day for three or five days.

Do not be unduly alarmed if you feel somewhat weak during or after this detoxification. Nature uses our energies for a housecleaning within us, and we soon regain greater energy and vitality as a result of a cleaner and healthier body. It is good to do the three day cleanse monthly or several times a year.

If there is the slightest tendency toward appendicitis, we would also take high enemies using catnip tea or tea made of three parts red raspberry leaf and one part lobelia – taking two or more enemas daily for one week or longer if necessary.

Iris Analysis

Standard

“The light of the body is in the eye: when the eye is sound the body is sound.” Matthew 6:22.
Iridology is the science of analysing the iris (the coloured part of the eye) in order to determine the condition of the organs and tissue of the body. The eyes can be likened to miniature television screens, recording the cellular activity throughout the body. For under magnification they reveal in minute detail the state of the tissues throughout the body – inflammation, toxicity, acidity, degeneration, spasm, lymphatic congestion, hardening of the arteries, the heart, the liver, gall bladder, kidneys, pancreas, spleen, thyroid gland, lungs and bronchials; they are all recorded in the coloured part of the eye known as the iris.

The Green Smoothie Song

Standard

Have you heard the green smoothie song?

“The WHO (World Health Organization) says humans need about 5% of their daily calories to come from protein to be healthy. The USDA puts this figure at 6.5%. On average, fruits have about 5% of their calories from protein. Vegetables have from 20-50% of their calories from protein. Sprouted seeds, beans, and grains contain from 10-25% of their calories from protein. So if you are eating any variety of living plant foods, you are getting more than adequate protein. Numerous scientific studies have shown the daily need for protein to be about 25-35 grams per day. So if you ate 2,000 calories per day, and ate raw plant foods that had an average of 10% of their calories from protein, you would get 200 calories worth of protein, or 50 grams. This is more than adequate to support optimal well-being. Other studies have shown that heat treating a protein (such as with cooking) makes about half of it unusable to the human body. So raw plant food protein is even a better source than cooked plant foods or animal foods. There is still a huge, foolish, misguided idea that plant protein is not “complete”. This is based on studies done on rats in the 1940’s. This false conclusion was drawn before we discovered the bodies protein recycling mechanism and its ability to “complete” any amino acid mix from our bodies amino acid pool, no matter what the amino acid composition of a meal consumed. This false idea is still perpetuated by the meat and dairy industries, in an attempt to influence people to continue consuming their truly health destroying products.” http://www.rawfoods.com/faq.html  Read the rest of this entry

Impure Blood How to Cleanse

Standard

 

By Jethro Kloss – Back To Eden

http://www.amazon.com/Back-Eden-Jethro-Kloss/dp/0879040009

Causes: A wrong diet, constipation, overeating, eating a combination of food at the same meal that causes fermentation, or devitalized foods.  The very elements that would keep the blood pure are removed from many foods by the way they are prepared. For example, the heart and the outside of the wheat, the eyes and peelings of potatoes, the outside of rice, and the heart of corn, which is take out of the meal.  These are wonderful alkaline medicines and do a great deal toward keeping the blood pure.

Some other causes of impure blood are improper breathing, sleeping in rooms that are not properly ventilated, and lack of exercise.  Often the muscles are poisoned and feel tired because of the accumulated waste matter from insufficient exercise.

Drinking impure water and other harmful drinks such as tea, coffee, alcohol and all kinds of soft drinks are other causes.  These confuse the mind and cause wrong thoughts and ideas.  The brain is made up of about 90 percent water and when we drink these unwholesome drinks, many of which are stimulating, the blood is made impure and the mind is very much affected.

Worry, fear, anger, unhappiness, and hate generally hinder the circulation of blood, and thus the impurities are not carried off as they should be.  A stagnant condition of the skin is another cause of impure blood.  Many times the blood that should be circulating near the surface of the body is in the deeper structures, overloading the various organs and causing congestion and various diseases.

Symptoms: The symptoms cover a large list of diseases and complaints: pimples, boils, discolorations of the skin, jaundice, headaches, drowsiness, wrinkles, premature aging, insanity, nervousness, getting angry easily, continually frowning when we should be smiling, thinking evil thoughts when we should think evil of no man, seeing darkness where there is light, gray hair, loss of hair, loss of eyesight, loss of hearing, stiff joints and pain in various parts of the body.  All of these symptoms will be helped to a great or lesser degree when the bloodstream is purified.

Treatment: To make the blood pure, the first thing to do is to eliminate all harmful articles of food and drink such as tea, coffee, all alcoholic drinks, soft drinks, all white flour products, all cane sugar products, and the liberal use of free fat or grease.  The bowels must be kept open by proper diet and the use of herbal laxatives when needed.  Take high herbal enemas to clean out the colon and make it active and strong.  Drink plenty of fresh, pure water.  Take regular outdoor exercise with deep breathing and get plenty of sleep in a well-ventilated room.

Echinacea and red clover are good blood purifiers. Both can be purchased in convenient capsule form.

Keep the skin active by cold morning baths and vigorous rubbing with a coarse Turkish towel. Take a hot bath or shower every day. Wash the body thoroughly with some good soap.  A thorough salt glow is good after a hot bath.  This will stimulate the skin, make it active, and open the pores.

A massage from head to foot is beneficial. Give it thoroughly on the neck and the upper part of the spine and especially on the feet.

Go on a fruit diet for one week.  In the absence of an abundance of fruit, eat vegetables prepared as discussed in Section V, Chapter 2, and Section VI, Chapter 1. For example, eat the green part of leafy vegetables and carrots – either raw, grated, or baked until tender – carrot juice, and potatoes.

Reader, if you want to see wonderful results, live on the food that God originally gave to man.  There is an abundance of it.  Just live on fruit for a while and follow the sanitary habits previously mentioned.  Make use of the herbs that God let grow for the healing of the nations and you will say with many whom the writer has heard say, “Truly the day of miracles has not passed.”

The fruit of the tree is for man’s food, and the leaves for his medicine. Ezekiel 47:12.

Why water fast?

Standard

Fast a short time, and give the stomach a chance for rest. Reduce the feverish state of the system by a careful and understanding application of water. These efforts will help nature in her struggles to free the system of impurities.—Spiritual Gifts 4a:133, 134, 1864 – {CD 190.1}

Persons who have indulged their appetite to eat freely of meat, highly seasoned gravies, and various kinds of rich cakes and preserves, cannot immediately relish a plain, wholesome, and nutritious diet. Their taste is so perverted that they have no appetite for a wholesome diet of fruits, plain bread, and vegetables. They need not expect to relish at first food so different from that which they have been indulging themselves to eat. If they cannot at first enjoy plain food, they should fast until they can. That fast will prove to them of greater benefit than medicine, for the abused stomach will find that rest which it has long needed, and real hunger can be satisfied with a plain diet. It will take time for the taste to recover from the abuses which it has received, and to gain its natural tone. But perseverance in a self-denying course of eating and drinking will soon make plain, wholesome food palatable, and it will soon be eaten with greater satisfaction than the epicure enjoys over his rich dainties.—[Spiritual Gifts 4a:130, 131] Counsels on Health, 148 – {CD 190.2}

In cases of severe fever, abstinence from food for a short time will lessen the fever, and make the use of water more effectual. Testimonies for the Church 2:384, 385, 1870 – {CD 190.3}
