save your gallbladder! 

Standard
Contrary to DR’s medical advice given to patients, there is not a single long term medical study carried on patients known to mankind that backs this medical opinion. In direct contradiction, comprehensive and reputable medical studies confirm up to 40-70 percent of patients who undergo cholecystectomy are likely to develop transient, persistent or lifelong complications. 

The gallbladder has a very important function and can be described as a protector of the liver, pancreas, stomach, intestines and colon. It serves as a storage site tp present bile on demand to process food. Bile is also designed to emulsify (digest) fats. When we eat meals with moderate amounts of fat the gallbladderreleases its stores of bile to aid the liver in digesting the fat. The loose stools and urgency are very common side effects of gallbladder removal and/or dysfunction. 

Because fats are essential for human health, they cannot simply be avoided. Good luck trying! Fats are required in the diet to help us absorb fat soluble vitamins such as Vitamin A,D,E and K. Fats are also important for the brain and our cell membranes. Fats also provide the building block for steroid hormones in the body such as estrogen, testosterone etc 

You cannot be healthy without a gallbladder. You can live, but in many cases be miserable. Some common side effects of gallbladder removal are: Upset stomach, nausea, and vomiting. Gas, bloating, and diarrhea. Persistent pain in the upper right abdomen. Risks include cancer of the Colon, pacreseas and throat (r esophagus) It is a shame when doctors remove the gallbladder. It is the greatest disservice your doctor can do to send you home and pretend you don’t need one. Bet your DR’s never provide you with informed consent on likely risks, which is medical fraud.

Why Fats are Good for you

Standard
When properly prepared, olives, like nuts, supply the place of butter and flesh meats. The oil, as eaten in the olive, is far preferable to animal oil or fat. It serves as a laxative. Its use will be found beneficial to consumptives, and it is healing to an inflamed, irritated stomach.—The Ministry of Healing, 298, 1905 – {CD 359.4}
615. Olives may be so prepared as to be eaten with good results at every meal. The advantages sought by the use of butter may be obtained by the eating of properly prepared olives. The oil in the olives relieves constipation; and for consumptives, and for those who have inflamed, irritated stomachs, it is better than any drug. As a food it is better than any oil coming secondhand from animals.—Testimonies for the Church 7:134, 1902 – {CD 359.5}
616. The oil in olives is a remedy for constipation and kidney diseases.—Letter 14, 1901 – {CD 360.1}
I will tell you a little about my own experience with charcoal as a remedy. For some forms of indigestion it is more efficacious than drugs. A little olive oil into which some of this powder has been stirred tends to cleanse and heal. I find it is excellent. Pulverized charcoal from eucalyptus wood, we have used freely in cases of inflammation…  {PC 38.2}

Eating between meals 

Standard

X-ray studies have been conducted to determine the emptying time of the normal stomach. Anything remaining in the stomach five hours after a test meal is abnormal. The stomach usually empties itself in 2 ½ to 4 hours. Series of tests have been run in which persons have been given routine breakfasts consisting of cereal and cream, bread, cooked fruit, and an egg. These stomachs were x-rayed and found to be emptied normally in less than 4 ½ hours. Read the rest of this entry

How to get rid of Grey Hair with Black Strap Molasses

Standard

One of the most shining examples of ‘turning the clock back’ I know is that of a world champion wrestler of the later 1930’s whom I recently had the good fortune to meet.

Bob’s health was adequate at the peak of his career, but by his own admission, his diet was poor. When his career ended, and with it, exercise, his health went to pieces.

Fennel, Split Pea, Anise Vegan Soup

Standard


1 bunch of garlic

Whole bulb of fennel – set the leaves aside

Spring onions or shallots

Celery

Sauté them soft but don’t brown

Use plenty of olive oil.

Boil some water in a kettle and then add chopped root vegetables, potatoes, turnip, carrot but not pumpkin because it turns it into pumpkin soup.

Add a good handful of dried split peas – if you prefer runny soup as less.

Add herbs. I usually have rosemary, maybe some oregano, dill is nice, a star anise pod, salt, chilli, and some massel chicken or veg stock

Bring to boil for an hour and then simmer for another hour or two.

Add fennel leaves chopped before serving.

Tastes much better the following day.

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.

Why Green Smoothies are So Important and What are Phyonutrients

Standard

The term “phyto” originated from a Greek word meaning plant. Phytonutrients are certain organic components of plants, and these components are thought to promote human health. Fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts, and teas are rich sources of phytonutrients.

Of all the phytonutrients, we probably know the most about carotenoids, the red, orange, and yellow pigments in fruits and vegetables. The carotenoids most commonly found in vegetables (and in plasma) are Read the rest of this entry
