Salt

                                Saltflat in Bolivia- ” The Border between heaven and earth.”

 

   Humans need dietary salt in order to survive. The production of sea salt has been dated all the way back to prehistoric time. The most convincing fact that salt is critical to life is that the amniotic fluid is salty! And that salt is not processed salt! The history of human civilization is linked to salt. Animals created paths to salt licks, men followed turning trails into roads and settlements would grow beside these roads. As civilizations grew around the world, salt continued to be one of the main items used for trad

   Himalayan Pink Salt is one of the purest salts and is as old as the earth. Many believe Himalayan sea salt is the purest salt available. With a history dating back to Earth’s creation, it’s believed to be composed of dried remnants of the original, primal sea. Known as “pink gold,” Himalayan crystal salt contains all of the 84 elements found in your body. :It may cost a little more but is worth the price for its health benefits. Using a small amount of this precious salt daily is sufficient to provide what our body needs.

   Added to a natural face scrub, finer crystals help to exfoliate. Pink Himalayan crystal salt is widely believed to help with losing excess fat. Other health benefits include heart health, healthy blood sugar levels, healthy libido, better sleep patterns, preventing rheumatism, preventing gout naturally, and sinus health. Some of the health benefits of Himalayan Pink salt are:

  • Avoids Dehydration and Balances Fluids -Water follows salt. If you increase sodium too much, water retention occurs. The opposite is true also: A loss in sodium results in a loss in water, potentially causing dehydration and extreme thirst. By consuming sea salt daily, you maintain sufficient sodium levels helping to balance your sodium-potassium ratios. Sodium and potassium are two electrolytes that work together to ensure proper fluid balance in your body’s cells as well as your blood plasma and extracellular fluid.
  • Excellent Electrolyte Source – minimal processing of unrefined sea salt enables it to retain its natural mineral content. Sea salt contains many major electrolytes, like sodium, magnesium, calcium and potassium, absolutely essential to good health. Electrolytes have many important functions — from regulating your heartbeat to allowing your muscles to contract so you can move. Sea salt in moderation can help avoid an electrolyte imbalance, which can cause serious negative symptoms. The electrolytes are vital to the nerves for communication and information processing of the brain cells. This salt assists in the generation of hydroelectric energy in the cells.
  • Proper Brain, Muscle and Nervous System Function – Sea salt is essential for proper brain, muscle and nervous system function. Sodium is a regulator of water in your body and required for the transmission of electrical signals in the body. Without this communication system working the brain, muscles and nervous systems are inclined to suffer. Too much or too little sodium causes cellular malfunction.
  • Digestive Health Aid and Nutrient Enhancer – Having enough stomach acid helps the body absorb vitamins and minerals like calcium, zinc, iron, folate and B12. Consuming a high-quality sea salt regularly can help your body absorb more nutrients from the foods that you eat.
  • Promotes healthy pH balance in your cells (particularly your brain cells). Prevents over-acidity in body: The rich minerals eliminate unwanted sodium from the body, extracting excess acidity in the body, especially in the brain. An over-acidic body creates many health problems and an endless list of degenerative diseases.

 

  • Promotes blood sugar health and helps balance out blood sugar in diabetics. Can help reduce the signs of ageing. It alkalizes the body.
  • Absorption of food particles through your intestinal tract is enhanced. Himalayan Pink Salt helps with the absorption of vital nutrients in the intestines and helps reduce the chances of forming kidney and gall bladder stones. Not enough salt in the diet can negatively impact digestive health and lead to the body not producing enough hydrochloric acid in your stomach which can seriously throw off the digestive system. Sea salt provides chloride, which is the building block of stomach acid.
  • Promote sinus health and supports respiratory health. Pure salt taken before sleep has helped sufferers sleep through the night as it breaks up the irritating mucus, providing much relief.
  • Prevent muscle cramps by providing essential minerals to the muscles that prevent muscle cramps. Muscle cramps can be treated or prevented naturally by taking this pink salt.
  • Promote bone strength – This salt contains over 80 minerals essential to health and bone building. Sea salts are a great source of minerals and typically contain 60 trace minerals. Himalayan sea salt contains 84 minerals. It’s harder to obtain trace minerals from the foods we eat because of nutrient depleted soil.
  • Regulates your sleep supporting deeper and more restful sleep: When pure salt is taken with warm water before bedtime, it promotes a deeper and longer sleep that is both restful and refreshing. Nor does it cause you to wake up and wanting to urinate.
  • Supports your libido and builds the immune system. It is believed to help slow the effects of aging and promotes vascular health. It aids healing, providing the rich minerals directly to cells to enhance resistance to infections and bacterial diseases. It helps our body heal quicker when there has been a surgery, sickness, burns, and mental disorders. Bathing wounds in pure salt water does not sting, and helps wounds heal faster and is helpful for gargling or drinking to ease sore throats.
  • Helps control saliva: If you drool in your sleep, it could mean that your body is deprived of the right kind of salt, and that you are not drinking enough water. This condition may lead to double chin as your saliva glands work doubly hard to lubricate your insides. Drink more water with pure salt to stop this condition.
  • Regulate your blood pressure with sufficient water and potassium intake. If you have high blood pressure, pure salt will bring it down. But if you have low blood pressure, pure salt will bring it up to normal. Only nature has been designed with the ability to do this.

Celtic Sea Salt is comparable to Himalayan crystal salt in its composition and health benefits. Being of a grayish hue, it is naturally harvested in Brittany, France, near the Celtic Sea using a 2,000-year-old Celtic method that is crucial to preserving its life-giving nutrition profile. This salt retains its moisture and is moist to touch, in spite of how you store it. Celtic Sea Salt is powerfully beneficial.

Other sea salt options include 

   Fleur de S0l: French or Portuguese for “flower of salt,” this sea salt gets its name from the patterns of crystals that resemble flowers. This salt forms as a thin, fragile crust on seawater’s surface as it evaporates. Today it’s most commonly used for cooking as a finishing salt.

   Flake Sea Salt can be formed naturally or produced by a variety of methods. Most flake sea salts have thin, flattened crystals that provide more surface area. Pure salt has been shown to normalize blood pressure. Flake sea salt has a saltier taste but lower trace mineral content than other sea salts.

   Hawaiian Sea Salt is a traditional Hawaiian salt. Alae is a natural red volcanic clay added to enrich the salt with iron oxide, and it gives the sea salt its distinctive red color. Real Hawaiian salt is pricey and hard to find outside of Hawaii.

   Italian Sea Salt: This sea salt is derived from the Mediterranean Sea along the coast of Sicily.

Sea Salt vs. Table Salt

   Table salt is mined from underground salt deposits. It’s heavily processed to eliminate healthy minerals. It is manufactured by taking natural salt and heating it to 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit and the chemical composition is completely altered and all nutritional benefits are destroyed.

   Generic table salt is about 97.5 percent sodium chloride and a 2.5 percent balance of an array of ingredients. Eighteen food additives are allowed in table salt. This processed “fake” salt puts people at risk of developing cardiovascular events and chronic disease because of elevated blood pressure and arteriosclerosis. Processed “salt” causes your body to retain fluids. People who use these products develop diabetes, gout and obesity more than people who don’t.

   Most table salt is iodized and puts people at risk for over-iodization, which has been shown to abnormally enlarge the thyroid gland and cause thyroid problems, such as thyroid-related autoimmune disorders. Excess iodine in the diet can lead to nausea, headaches and unhealthy hormone levels. Table salt is heavily processed in excessive heat that removes 82 out of the 84 minerals in salt, leaving behind only sodium and chloride. Sea salt is a general term that refers to salt derived from the sea. And that is what it is, except that most brands are refined—similar to table salt.

 

   Salts that are not sea salt are derived from underground salt deposits left behind by seawater. Sea salt is produced from the evaporation of current seawater. The evaporation is accomplished by either open-air solar evaporation or by a vacuum evaporation process. Look for unrefined sea salt, which has more of its inherent health properties. Refined sea salt is washed to strip it of its trace minerals. You don’t want a sea salt that lists “sodium chloride” as its main ingredient because this means it’s just as refined as table salt. Beware of additives when purchasing sea salt. Some commercial producers of sea salt include health-hazardous additives in their final product, and certain additives trigger leaky gut.

 

   If a diet is high in sodium, excess water is excreted by the kidneys . Symptoms of too much salt include bloating, lethargy, dehydration, weakness, irritability and muscle twitches. Hypernatremia occurs when there’s an imbalance of sodium and water in your body. This condition is most common in infants who have a low intake of breast milk or of formula not mixed properly, and in older adults, people with diabetes or kidney problems, severe burn patients, people who take diuretics, and those who eat heavily processed diets. Symptoms can include intense thirst, headache, confusion, irritability, restlessness and drowsiness.

   Table salt is found in processed and packaged foods and causes many problems. Sea salt in moderate amounts daily is a health booster in multiple ways. Sea salt is also more flavorful. Table salt is refined and extremely unhealthy and toxic. A list of dangers when we consume refined table salt found in commercial cooking and processed foods:

  • High blood pressure
  • Accelerated aging cellular degeneration
  • Respiratory and blood sugar problems
  • Aggravates inflammatory issues—rheumatism, asthma, arthritis and gout
  • Liver failure, adrenal exhaustion
  • Kidney and gallbladder stones
  • Heart muscles tire and lacerate, causing fatal heart attack

 Generally, you need to use 2/3 of the amount of pure salt vs. table salt. For therapeutic use, increase your water intake. For every quart of water, stir in ¼ teaspoon of pure salt and drink. No, drinking pure salt water does not make you thirsty, only dead table salt makes you thirsty. Put in a pinch of sea salt into your fresh juices and taste the difference.

   Cancer patients on a healing program are advised not to take salt. If you have to, take natural sea salt sparingly. Your body requires only very little salt and most foods contain small amounts of sodium that is sufficient for your body with higher amounts in cucumber, celery, tomato, potato and other root vegetables. Adding more salt to your diet is putting more strain to your body that is trying to heal.

Natural Remedies for Arthritis

2. Regular Exercise

While it might be the last thing you want to do when your joints ache, keeping things moving with a regular exercise program will help ease pain and stiffness. Physical activity provides a multi-faceted range of benefits for arthritis sufferers, including strengthening the muscles around the joints, improved bone strength, maintaining a healthy body weight, more restful sleep, more energy throughout the day, and better balance. Exercise won’t worsen your joint health – in fact, lack of movement is what may be making your joints stiffer. Just a few minutes of physical activity each day – such as walking, swimming, or using a stationary bicycle – can have a huge impact on quality of life. It doesn’t need to be rigorous – go slow, move gently, and if it’s too painful, take a break. Here are a few low-impact workouts that are arthritis-friendly.

3. Manage Your Stress – Those living with chronic pain struggle with depression and anxiety at a rate of two to ten times greater than the general population.

    While all types of arthritis can have a negative impact on your mental health, people with rheumatoid arthritis are at a heightened risk of major depressive disorder. It appears that these two conditions co-occur and feed off of each other – feelings of depression and anxiety can lower your pain threshold, while constant pain can worsen your anxiety and depression. The prevalence of depression in arthritis patients may be related to elevated inflammation levels in the body, since pro-inflammatory enzymes are implicated in both rheumatoid arthritis and depressive symptoms.

    If you’re struggling with low mood, there are things you can do to help manage anxiety and depression. Tending a garden or taking a walk are powerful ways to boost mood that will keep you active. Supplementing with St. John’s Wort or herbal tinctures may offer some relief, and aromatherapy with essential oils for anxiety.

4. Avoid These Pro-Inflammatory Foods

Limit or avoid these foods that are known to trigger inflammation in the body:

  • Sugar – Consuming processed sugar releases inflammatory cytokines that can make  pain worse. Here are tips on how to quit sugar and natural sweetener alternatives.
  • Refined Carbohydrates – White bread, white rice, and other kinds of refined grains are high glycemic index foods that can fuel inflammation. Paleo and Keto diets have healthy meal plan ideas that help limit carbohydrate intake.
  • Fried Foods – Reducing the amount of fried foods can lower inflammation levels and help restore the body’s natural defenses.
  • Red Meat and Processed Meat – Eating a high protein diet of steaks and hot dogs can induce inflammation and accelerate the process behind inflammatory diseases.
  • Trans Fats – An unsaturated fat widely used in the food industry, trans fats can cause systemic inflammation. Avoid margarine, shortening, lard, and processed foods.

5. Eat More Foods that Fight Inflammation – Including anti-inflammatory foods is a natural way to combat arthritic pain. According to Harvard Health:

 The Top Foods That Fight inflammation:

  • Fruits such as tomatoes, strawberries, blueberries, apples, cherries, oranges, and pineapples are rich in antioxidants that help ward off inflammation.
  • Leafy Greens like spinach, kale, and collards.
  • Nuts like almonds and walnuts.
  • Fatty Fish such as salmon, mackerel, tuna, and sardines.
  • Olive Oil is a healthy substitute for trans fats.

To fight inflammation with food, try the Mediterranean diet, shown to reduce inflammatory markers throughout the body.

6. Fermented Cod Liver Oil is an excellent source of vitamin A and D, and omega-3 fatty acids. Fermented cod liver oil offers a natural way to fight pain and inflammation. If arthritis is complicated by depression, the omega-3s in cod liver oil have been shown to lessen anxiety and boost mood.

7. Ginger is aromatic and spicy, and contains compounds that combat both pain and inflammation.Ginger possesses broad anti-inflammatory action that shares many of the properties of NSAIDs, but with better results and fewer side effects. Ginger  interacts with genes responsible for encoding enzymes involved in inflammatory responses, beneficial for those suffering from chronic inflammation.

8. Turmeric root has wonderful applications for the skin and overall physical health. For arthritis, turmeric can provide relief from swelling and pain of inflamed joints.Studies involving curcumin and inflammation have found it is capable of inhibiting several pro-inflammatory enzymes, including the “holy grail” of inflammation. Researchers found that turmeric improved pain levels when walking, and had less morning stiffness, and better range of movement.

    Mix fresh rhizomes or dried spices into a tasty beverage or make turmeric paste and apply directly to achy joints for quick pain relief.

9. Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies. Collagen is found in our skin, bones, tendons, organs, and cartilage. With degenerative diseases like arthritis, collagen supplements may help rebuild joint cartilage, strengthen bones, and relieve pain.Oral collagen supplements can significantly reduced pain and the stiffness of osteoarthritis and improved the ability to carry out physical activities. Collagen has a similar impact on swelling and joint tenderness in rheumatoid arthritis, without any adverse effects.

    Collagen can only be sourced from the skins, tendons, marrow, and ligaments of animals. Replenish collagen by making bone broth or using powdered collagen you can add to recipes.

10. Eggshell Membrane – the egg membrane is the thin, transparent layer that clings to the inside of an eggshell after you’ve broken an egg. It is composed off all sorts of good stuff for joint and tissue support: collagen, glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, and hyaluronic acids.

    Eggshell membrane was effective for people with joint and connective tissue disorders, according to a study published in Clinical Interventions in Aging. Taking 500 mg of eggshell membrane daily resulting in a 28% increase in flexibility after just 7 days, and a 72% reduction in general pain, 44% increase in flexibility, and 76% decrease in pain associated with range of movement after 30 days of treatment. You can harvest eggshell membranes yourself or by taking eggshell membrane capsules.

11. CBD Oil is a rather new entrant to modern medicine and has shown promising results in treating a range of ailments. CBD possesses antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties.

    CBD interacts with brain receptors in the endocannabinoid system involved in regulating pain sensation, the immune system, and mood. Preliminary findings suggest it may be of therapeutic value for arthritic conditions.

    Sativex – patients used an oral spray composed of CBD and THC in equal parts – daily for five weeks and compared with a placebo group, and there were significant improvements in pain on movement, pain at rest, and sleep quality.

    Pure CBD helps protect the joints against damage and decreased pro-inflammatory enzymes such as tumor necrosis factor. The researchers concluded that CBD oil has a potent anti-arthritic effect due to its immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory action.

     CBD applied to inflamed joints reduces swelling and pain and the effects were long lasting and without any adverse side effects.

12. Capsaicin gives chili peppers their fiery heat. As food or used topically, capsaicin selectively interacts with nociceptive neurons in the brain which are responsible for how we perceive pain.

    Capsaicin is sourced from chili peppers like jalapeno, cayenne, and habanero or purchase a topical cream with capsaicin standardized at 0.1%.

13. Gamma-Linolenic Acid(GLA) is an omega-6 fatty acid found in botanical oils like evening primrose, black currant, and borage. Taken as a dietary supplement, GLA appears to be an effective treatment for joint pain, stiffness, and swelling associated with rheumatoid arthritis.It is capable of suppressing inflammation at a daily dose of 2.8 grams.  After one year of GLA treatment, researchers found that 76% of participants experienced a meaningful reduction in overall disease activity.

14. Healing Herbs – The earth is abundant in plants that soothe and heal. 

  Healing herbs that hold great promise as treatments for rheumatic conditions:

  • Cat’s Claw – The bark and roots of this woody vine have powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that reduced pain and swelling in both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Cat’s claw can be taken as a dietary supplement.
  • Frankincense – Native to India, frankincense has been shown to help curtail pro-inflammatory enzymes, improve joint health, and reduce the deterioration of cartilage. Frankincense is available as an essential oil and daily supplement.
  • Stinging Nettle is a weed that grows in the wilds throughout North America that  may help improve inflammation and pain.
  • Rosehips are one of the richest sources of vitamin C, rosehips have natural pain-relieving properties that benefit people with osteoarthritis.
  • Pineapple stems and juice contain bromelain, an enzyme that exhibits potent pain and swelling relief in knee osteoarthritis.

Lower Cholesterol Naturally

Phytosterols are compounds found in plants that have a chemical structure similar to cholesterol, and when present in the diet in sufficient amounts, reduce blood levels of cholesterol, enhance the immune response, and decrease risks of certain cancers. Their effects are so dramatic that they have been added to processed foods such as imitation butter and touted as cholesterol- lowering.

Sesame seeds have the highest total phytosterol content of all nuts and seeds, followed by pistachio, sunflower and pumpkin. English walnuts and Brazil nuts have the lowest.

Pumpkin seed oil packs whopping amounts of vitamins – A, B1, B2, B6, C, D, E and K, as well as the minerals magnesium, calcium and iron. This oil is high in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. These vitamins, minerals and healthy fats helps boost the metabolism which in turn helps with weight lost and maintenance. Pumpkin seed oil can lower cholesterol and ease symptoms of arthritis.

Oats and Barley are packed with fiber. Soluble fiber seems to reduce the amount of cholesterol the body absorbs from the intestines, lowering total cholesterol and LDL or “bad” cholesterol in the process.

Fish – The right seafood can lower cholesterol. You are replacing meat in your diet, and meat contains more LDL-boosting saturated fats. Fish like salmon, sardines and albacore tuna are high in omega-3 fatty acids, shown to lower triglycerides.

Nuts – Toss in salads, sprinkle on oatmeal, or snack them by the handful. Just about any variety of nuts can lower total cholesterol, LDL and triglyceride levels.

Olive Oil – Swapping saturated fats for unsaturated fats in oils can help reduce total cholesterol. Olive oil in particular may increase HDL, or “good” cholesterol.

Apples – A medium-sized apple contains about 4 grams of LDL-lowering soluble fiber – 17 percent recommended daily intake. An apple a day keeps the heart doctor away!

Strawberries are rich in pectin, a soluble fiber that can lower LDL.

Citrus Fruits – You find pectin in oranges, grapefruits and other citrus fruits. Adding more fiber to your diet can lower blood pressure and reduce inflammation.

Beans And Lentils – Beans and lentils are great sources of soluble fiber, which keeps you full and can reduce cholesterol. People who ate a half-cup of beans a day over a 24-week period lowered their cholesterol by 8 percent.

Soy is a great source of protein and cholesterol free. A 2010 study found that eating soy can result in a moderate 8 to 10 percent decrease in total cholesterol.

Red Wine may be particularly beneficial, since it’s rich in antioxidants, which may lower LDL levels.

Avocados are rich in cholesterol-lowering unsaturated fats. Monounsaturated fats may lower LDL and raise HDL. Replace unhealthier dietary fats with these heart-healthy ones.

Green tea – While it appears to lower “bad” cholesterol, it’s only a slight reduction. — and you’d probably have to drink quite a few mugs full to see a difference. Chugging green tea isn’t a good idea for everyone; it can interfere with some medications.

All About Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is made from fresh ripe apples that are fermented and undergo a stringent process to create the final product. The vinegar contains a host of vitamins, beta-carotene, pectin and vital minerals such as potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorous, chlorine, sulphur, iron, and fluorine.

Pectin in the vinegar is a fiber that helps reduce bad cholesterol and helps in regulating blood pressure. This vinegar helps extract calcium from the fruits, vegetables and meat it is mixed with, helping in the process of maintaining strong bones. Potassium deficiency causes a variety of ailments including hair loss, weak fingernails, brittle teeth, sinusitis, and a permanently running nose. Apple cider vinegar is loaded with potassium. Potassium deficiency results in stunted growth. These ailments can be avoided with the intake of apple cider vinegar. The potassium in this vinegar also helps in eliminating toxic waste from the body. The beta-carotene helps in countering damage caused by free radicals, helping one maintain firmer skin and a youthful appearance. Apple cider vinegar is good for those wanting to lose weight. It helps in breaking down fat and helps in natural weight reduction.

Apple cider vinegar contains malic acid helpful in fighting fungal and bacterial infections. This acid dissolves uric acid deposits that form around joints, helping relieve joint pains. This dissolved uric acid is gradually eliminated from the body. It is claimed that apple cider vinegar is helpful in ailments such as constipation, headaches, arthritis, weak bones, indigestion, high cholesterol, diarrhea, eczema, sore eyes, chronic fatigue, mild food poisoning, hair loss, high blood pressure, obesity, along with a host of many other ailments.

Benefit of each Ingredient:     Garlic is a broad spectrum antibiotic. Unlike chemical antibiotics that kill off millions of friendly bacteria your body needs, Garlic only targets the invading bacteria and even promotes and increases your healthy bacteria. Garlic is a powerful anti-fungal and destroys any antigen, pathogen and any harmful or disease causing micro-organism.

Onion is Garlic’s next of kin and has similar but milder action. Together they are a tremendous fighting duo.

Horseradish is a potent herb for the sinus and lungs. It opens up the sinus passages and increases the circulation there, where most doctors agree, the common cold and influenza often starts.

Ginger contains powerful anti-inflammatory properties and is a tremendous circulatory stimulant.

Cayenne (Peppers) is the most powerful circulatory propellant known. It simply sends the antibiotic and disease fighting properties of the other herbs where they’re needed most.

Turmeric clears infection and reduces inflammation inside of the body. It blocks cancer from developing. It is especially helpful for those with joint pain.

Quick Daily Liver Cleanse

“The liver has more than five hundred functions in the body? “Your four-and-a-half pound liver manufactures 13,000 chemicals and has 2,000 enzyme systems, plus thousands of synergists that help the body function,” says Liz Lipski, PhD in her book Digestive Wellness.

Among the liver’s five hundred functions are:

  • Detoxing, cleansing, and purifying blood
  • Producing and excreting bile Activating enzymes
  • Excreting bilirubin, cholesterol, hormones and drugs
  • Storing glycogen, vitamins and minerals
  • Synthesizing plasma proteins
  • Producing amino acids.

It is one of the few organs that can regenerate itself. However, repetitive damage and severe toxins like pesticides, herbicides, preservatives, alcohol, and dyes can lead to liver failure, dysfunction, cancer, and ultimately even death. This cleanse is very gentle, non-invasive and simple.

First thing each morning drink a large glass of water with half a lemon squeezed in it. Take no ice with the water and make sure it is room temperature so that it does not cause a shock to the system. The liver flushes toxins out of our bloodstream while we are asleep- in fasting mode. Lemon water aids the flushing of the toxins and free radicals from the liver. You will find yourself more awake, with a better digestive response to food throughout the day, and less likely to develop migraines or headaches.

Save the other half of lemon for the glass of water you will have with dinner or lunch. It will help you digest better and absorb you meal slower to give your body a steady flow of glucose rather than a spike.

In the winter nothing is more delicious than a hot cup of tea with a lemon slice and some grated ginger. The combination of the two is helpful when dealing with cravings, sugar addictions, a sore throat, or an upset tummy. You should only use filtered water for this beverage. Fluoride and chlorine are toxins! If you don’t have a good water filter let the water sit for five or ten minutes on the counter, since some chemicals will dissipate when exposed to air.

Colon Cleanse that Will Rid Your Body of Toxic Waste

Plan a stay-at-home day to relax with a bathroom available for when the internal cleaning process begins. Drink this cleansing juice first thing in the morning before you eat anything. Have another cup of this before a light lunch, advisably consisting of steamed vegetables and baked salmon.

Drink the beverage a third time mid-afternoon. Consume 6-8 glasses of room-temperature water throughout the day. Slow down drinking after 5 pm to prevent a midnight bathroom excursion.

Grape Seed Extract
Outperforms Chemo in Killing Advanced Cancer Cells
by Susan Patterson, NaturalSociety.com

Patients with colorectal cancer may benefit from the cancer-growth-inhibiting power of grape seed extract. Researchers from the University of Colorado Cancer Center report that the more aggressive the cancer cells are, the more effective the grape extract works at targeting and stopping the growth.
Grape seed extract is amazing in that it attacks the cancer cells but leaves the healthy cells untouched. This is a departure from conventional cancer treatments that destroy all of the cells in an attempt to stop the spread of cancer.
The power of grape seed extract seems quite remarkable in this research. Molly Derry, investigator at the CU Cancer Center, and her team saw that while doses of chemotherapy increase with more severe cancer cases, such as a stage IV instead of stage II, the amount of grape seed extract required actually decreased.
The bioactive compounds in grape seed extract selectively target many types of cancer cells. This study shows that many of the same mutations that allow colorectal cancer cells to metastasize and survive traditional therapies make them especially sensitive to treatment with GSE.”
Grape seed extract is made from the seed of the grape and is beneficial for a number of cardiovascular conditions such as poor circulation and high cholesterol. The extract has been found useful in the treatment of diabetes-related eye disease, loss of vision due to aging, and swelling associated with injury. Currently, GSE is being studied in the treatment of leukemia and Alzheimer’s disease.
In one study, the growth of new tumors in mice fed black raspberry decreased by 45 percent and the total number of tumors went down 60 percent. Other research found that foods rich in flavanols (berries, grapes, apples) also reduces the risk of colon cancer.
Advanced Cancer and Grape Seed Extract
The bioactive compounds in grape seed extract selectively target many types of cancer cells. With an increase in colorectal cancer, the findings of this study are timely. By the time most people are diagnosed with the disease, it is in the advanced stages. Researchers found that it required less grape seed extract to kill advanced cancer cells than it did cells in the early stage. It is thought that the extract kills cancer cells by a process of oxidative stress.

Anti-cancer Salad

Back in 2003, Chris Wark, a 26-year-old, was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer. He underwent a surgery and decided afterwards not to receive chemotherapy and decided to instead focusing on healing his body with only nutrients. He is now living a 100% disease free life. After he began eating healthy, he tried to back his diet with as many minerals, enzymes, and vitamins as possible. He claims that juicing fresh fruits and vegetables are the best way to obtain everything your body needs.
Organic vegetables, herbs and seeds are the main ingredients for his anti-cancer salad. Dark, leafy vegetables are extremely rich with anti-oxidants and are capable of stopping free radicals from harming our bodies. Fruits and vegetables need different digesting acids and this is why he never mixes fruits with vegetables. If they are mixed, it can slow the healing process.

Here is the list of ingredients for Chris’s anti-cancer salad:

-Kale, spinach, baby romaine, arugula
-Baby mushrooms
-Red onion
-Zucchini
-Squash
-Bell peppers
-Broccoli
-Celery
-Red cabbage
-Avocado
-Alfalfa sprouts
-Sunflower seeds
-Almonds
-Sprouted garbanzo beans
-Sprouted mung beans
-Sprouted red or green lentils
-Organic sauerkraut (containing only three ingredients: cabbage, water and salt)

Salad dressing

-Organic Cold-Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil
-Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

Sprinkle with these four cancer-fighting spices:
-Organic Oregano
-Organic Garlic Powder
-Organic Turmeric or Curry Powder
-Organic Cayenne Pepper

10 Foods to Help Lower Risks of Developing Certain Types of Cancer.

1. Grapefruit is full of vitamin C. Vitamin C, an antioxidant found in many types of citrus fruits and some vegetables. Vitamin C can prevent the formation of nitrogen compounds in the body that cause cancer.

2. Garlic – People who eat more garlic are less likely to develop cancer. Ingredients in garlic may keep substances in the body that cause cancer from working or slow down the multiplication of cancer cells.

3. Berries are one of the best foods you can eat to help prevent cancer. They are tasty and full of antioxidants, which help your body fight off diseases.

4. Tomatoes contain lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage that may cause cancer.

5. Cruciferous Vegetables include cabbage, cauliflower, and broccoli that have components to help protect a cell’s DNA from damage that could cause cancer.

6. Green Tea contains catechins that are antioxidants that help prevent cancer. Drinking green tea can help lower the risk of cancer.

7. Whole Grains contain antioxidants and fiber that can help lower cancer risk.

8. Turmeric comes from a root similar to ginger. Turmeric contains curcumin that can help reduce the risk of cancer.

9. Leafy green vegetables including kale, spinach, lettuce, and collard greens are high in the antioxidants lutein and beta-carotene that may limit growth of cancer cells.

10. Grapes – Reservatol is a powerful antioxidant found in the skin of red grapes. Reservatol may help keep cancer from starting or spreading. Studies have found that these foods can greatly reduce your risk.

Celery and Cancer

Celery is the ideal addition to a healthy cancer-free lifestyle. Celery contains compounds that help repel cancer cells. Celery contains apigenin and luteolin, bioactive flavonoids that fight cancer cells. The apigenin component of celery fights cancer cells by inducing apoptosis (programmed cell death). It is traditionally used in Chinese medicine to treat gout and some arthritic conditions. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory compound rivaling commercial anti-inflammatory drugs. Luteolin has the capacity to short-circuit the replication cycle of cancer cells. Luteolin is able to block the signal pathways (IGF and PI3K) necessary for the growth of cancer cells, specifically colorectal cancers. Luteolin also possesses strong anti-inflammatory properties.

Miracle unleashed – When researchers at the Health Sciences Institute were alerted to the news of Graviola,! they be gan tracking the research done on the cancer-killing tree. Evidence of the astounding effectiveness of Graviola–and its shocking cover-up–came in fast and furious…. ….The National Cancer Institute performed the first scientific research in 1976. The results showed that Graviola’s “leaves and stems were found effective in attacking and destroying malignant cells.” Inexplicably, the results were published in an internal report and never released to the public… …

.Since 1976, Graviola has proven to be an immensely potent cancer killer in 20 independent laboratory tests, yet no double-blind clinical trials–the typical benchmark mainstream doctors and journals use to judge a treatment’s value–were ever initiated.

A study published in the Journal of Natural Products, following a recent study conducted at Catholic University of South Korea stated that one chemical in Graviola was found to selectively kill colon cancer cells at “10,000 times the potency of (the commonly used chemotherapy drug) Adriamycin…” ….The most significant part of the Catholic University of South Korea report is that Graviola was shown to selectively target the cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched. Unlike chemotherapy, which indiscriminately targets all actively reproducing cells (such as stomach and hair cells), causing the often devastating side effects of nausea and hair loss in cancer patients.

A study at Purdue University recently found that leaves from the Graviola tree killed cancer cells among six human cell lines and were especially effective against prostate, pancreatic and lung cancers Seven years of silence broken. — with Gary Juffa, Wilzman Samb, Kibuka Ambros Kariai and 45 others.

Dangerous Cancer Causing Products

The Cancer Prevention Coalition (CPC) and Ralph Nader have released a “Dirty Dozen” list of consumer products containing a wide-range of carcinogenic and toxic contaminants that most of us are exposed to daily.

Non-Stick Cookware is proven to release toxic chemicals into food during cooking. When non-stick cookware is heated up, its coating begins to break down at a molecular level and releases toxic particles and fluoride-based gasses, many of which are carcinogenic. Instead of toxic non-stick cookware use glass, ceramic or stainless steel pots and pans.

Artificial Sweeteners are worse for you than sugar: Acesulfame K may be carcinogenic, causes tumors and affects pregnancy. Aspartame is linked to skin cancers and can be deadly for people with phenylketonuria. Saccharin may cause bladder cancer, is indigestible, and gets excreted by the liver unchanged. Sorbitol is partially digested, causes diarrhea, bloating and gas. Replace artificial sweeteners with: Stevia can lower blood pressure and blood sugar. Erythritol has no effect on blood sugar, insulin or cholesterol levels. Xylitol can improve bone density and reduce risk of tooth decay. Yacon syrup feeds good bacteria in intestines and fights against constipation. Honey or Maple Syrup

Talcum Powder – Talc can lead to lung irritations and ovarian cancer. Plastic Bottles And Food Containers – Chemicals in plastic leach into what you are drinking. Choose reusable metal or glass. Save the environment and keep your body safe.

Air Fresheners – Fumes emitted from air freshener cans are more dangerous than cigarette smoke. These fumes cause asthma, hormone imbalance, and cancers. Overexposure to air fresheners is linked to cancers of the nose and throat. Use essential oils. Add 15 drops of essential oil to a spray bottle with a cup of distilled water.

Commercial Cleaning Products have been linked respiratory disorders and asthma, and contain hormone disruptors such as parabens, triclosan, phthalates, and BPA. Vinegar and baking soda provide natural antimicrobial cleaning properties and are effective against staph, salmonella, and E. coli.

Toothpaste may contain saccharin and fluoride, both carcinogens. Fluoride can cause cavities and severely damage the thyroid. Coconut oil could be a healthy alternative.

Shampoo – Chemicals in anti-dandruff shampoos have been linked to cancer. Mothballs are toxic and cause kidney and liver damage, Hemolytic Anemia (it destroys red blood cells!).

Antibacterial Soap contains triclosan, which spurs the growth of drug-resistant bacteria,increases risk of infertility, early puberty, and cancer, and interferes with hormone levels. Use a natural soap like Castille.

Antiperspirants/Deodorants – Research has detected parabens, a preservative, in some personal care products. It has been found in women’s breast tissue.

Flea and Tick Treatments – Fipronil, found in many liquid flea and tick treatments can cause, vomiting or diarrhea, skin irritation, weakness, headaches, seizures and dizziness and is considered a possible human carcinogen.
