Free Healing Herbal Remedy for Bursitis Swelling

Published by under Ailments,Experiences,Health,Herbs

This article is about a frustrating bout I had with Bursitis on both of my elbows.   The inflammation was easy for me to solve as you will see below but the swelling was a whole other matter.   It took a technique I invented a long time ago to solve the swelling problem which worked excellently.   Herbs will always work, you just need to find the right combination and technique for the problem you have and apply it consistently.

 

Webster’s New World Medical Dictionary (bursitis definition)

Bursitis, elbow: Inflammation of the olecranon bursa, the bursa at the tip of the elbow is called the olecranon bursitis. A bursa is a fluid-filled sac that functions as a gliding surface to reduce friction between moving tissues of the body.   Bursitis is usually not infectious, but the bursa can become infected.   Treatment of non- infectious bursitis includes rest, ice, and medications for inflammation and pain. Check what are the best office chairs cushions and do a reasearch on why you should buy one. They are very affective! Infectious bursitis is treated with antibiotics, aspiration, and surgery.

 

There are 160 bursae in the body.   The major bursae are located adjacent to the tendons near the large joints, such as the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees.

 

What I did to Treat My Bursa

I am going to keep this article simple and to the point.   What I did to solve the bursitis swelling on both of my elbows.  

 

I am still not exactly sure what caused the bursitis I had in the first place.   There were a number of things going on at the same time and anyone of them could have caused the problem.   I was exercising using some pretty heavy weights and that may have led to the problem.   I was using a chair that was too low at my computer station and that may have led to the problem.   I was also resting my elbows at that time on the sharp edge of the retractable computer keyboard table.   And I was staying at my computer desk much too long and not getting enough sunshine which can cause a shortage of vitamin D and can lead to bone and joint problems plus I am 65 years old.   So one of the first things I did was to remove and change all of the things I was and was not doing so I could take the stress away from the elbows, rest them and get back into the sunshine.     

 

Then I went to those things that I know have a reputation of reducing inflammation and swelling and preventing infection.   I went to alternating ice and heat 3 times a day to reduce the swelling and inflammation.   I started taking extra doses of a food form of the mineral magnesium to help with the inflammation.   A food form of vitamins and minerals are important because you body cannot absorb synthetic forms properly (see my article The Truth About Vitamins).   I started taking anti-inflammatory enzymes that I use to do the same thing reduce inflammation and swelling.   The Yoga arm and shoulder stretches which I was doing I increased.   I also went to see a massage therapist to get full body massage with extra attention to the neck, shoulder and arm areas.   I started rubbing an ointment I use, which has tissue repair herbs, into my neck, shoulders and elbows.   I was doing all of these things together which are known to reduce the inflammation and swelling.  

 

Bursitis can cause infection so I brought my vitamin C levels up to ward off infection (see Orthomolecular Medicine, Dr. Klenner) and to keep my immune system strong.   I also added a herbal formula and also olive leaf that boosts the immune system  and destroys pathogens which again avoids infection reduces inflammation and of course swelling.  

 

Here are the results of all the above naturopathic medical treatments that I used.   I had no infection at all that I am aware of and the pain became minimal and so I believe the inflammation was almost completely eliminated.   But the swelling stayed exactly the same and did not appear to have been reduced one bit.   I was satisfied that I had solved most of my problem but frustrated and exasperated that the swelling was still there.  

 

It was wearisome and annoying to have this swelling as I am sure you know.  I may be 65 but I am still vain about my appearance and I am also a Naturopathic Doctor who should be able to take care of problems like this.   My left elbow from the beginning was a little smaller, about the size of a kids rubber jack ball, a little over an inch in diameter while the right elbow was bigger, the size of a ping pong ball more then 2 inches in diameter (I took photos).     I continued the use of the above program another 2 weeks but I saw no reduction in size of the swelling at all, zip.   This was completely cramping my life and it was a challenge to my skill as a Naturopathic Doctor.

 

Into the 3rd week I was considering seeing a doctor to get the fluid removed by syringe or operation.   And if you know me that is not an option I want anything to do with as I believe in “Physician heal thyself” in all its meanings.   I have not used modern medicine in any form in 20 years and I did not want to start now plus the cost.

 

The Light Goes on in My Head

That same week I was preparing some organic cayenne pepper for a tincture I was making.   It struck me that this herb increases circulation to any area it is applied to.   Well there is a powerful technique I developed to intensify this herb and any herb with it to speed up healing.   I used this technique when I dislocated my right knee in a karate accident and I also used it on my low back when I had taken a fall from a roof years ago.   Both injuries had developed into arthritis and were preventing me from working.   So I developed this herbal technique to focus the herbs into the arthritic areas of my knee and back which gave me relief and completely eliminated my arthritis (see my article, Arthritis Formula to Reduce Pain, Swelling and Increase Movement).

 

My Bursitis Herbal Remedy Technique

First I brought out the salve I mentioned above, that has the cayenne in the formula.   This salve is a combination of deep heat herbs for pain and inflammation relief and also tissue repair herbs to encourage healing of the afflicted area.    I rub it directly into the muscles or joints that suffer from injury or the pain of arthritis for relief. 

 

This is what I did for my arthritis in the past, and I was now going to apply it to my bursitis swelling.   I decided to apply it to just the left elbow first to see if it would work.   If I was doing this for the first time I would try just the ointment and then add some more cayenne if needed.   So I took some of the ointment which I am very familiar with and added more cayenne to it and took photos for before and after.   I made a paste using both powdered cayenne and the ointment together and I wanted it just hot enough that I could tolerate it.   The cayenne will not hurt you but you will feel like it is if you add too much.   I wanted it hot enough so that it would bring on a healing while moving that fluid out of the bursa and I took more photos of this process.

 

I got this paste nicely mixed up and then completely covered the bursa on my left elbow.   Now like I said, I wanted to concentrate the healing bower of the herbs in this mix.   So I wrapped the bursa and elbow in saran wrap then wrapped the elbow with an ace bandage.   This will hold the dressing in place and as I said concentrate the healing power of these herbs.   And of course I took photos of this process.

 

I could feel the heat within about 5 minutes and it climbed till it was nice and hot so I knew it was working.   Then I left the dressing with the herbs on the left elbow for three and a half hours while I attended to other things   It was late afternoon so when the time was up I removed the dressing and washed off the paste with soap and water.   Even after the paste was washed off I could still feel the heat, but after 30 minutes it was gone and I took a shower.  

 

Warning: You do not want to put any hot water on that area until the paste is washed off with soap and water and you allow a half hour to go by.   Because the hot water will magnify the heat on your skin.

 

When I woke up the next day I noticed that the skin around the bursa on the left arm was loose and the size had gone down a little.   I reapplied the paste again for the second time, same amount of cayenne to the ointment with the same dressing to concentrate it and left it on all day.   By the second day the bursa on the left elbow was noticeably smaller and I knew I was on the right track.

  

Once I saw how well it had worked for me I knew I had to demonstrate the power of this herbal technique by recording this in an article with photos so you can see what can be done.   I searched the internet before I did this to see if there were any other natural ways to reduce the size of a bursa and there was only one and from the blogs I was reading it was expensive and not very effective.  

 

Warning: I do not want anyone getting in trouble here so remember I am not a Doctor of Allopathic (modern) medicine I am a Naturopathic Doctor.   If you are having difficulty with a painful bursa, see your doctor and by all means follow his advice.  

 

If you want, show your doctor this article and get his opinion on it.   I have had many doctors who have endorsed the suggestions I have made regarding chronic illnesses like bursitis, arthritis and rheumatism.   Usually they say something like this, “I cannot see how it can hurt you so give it a try.”  

A Few Questions You May Have About This Technique

I have seen information on bursitis that said do not add heat to bursitis.   I sometimes agree with that but this is not real heat.   The capsicum in the cayenne is fooling your nerves, making them think there is heat being applied but in reality there is no heat.  

 

Won’t the cayenne injure the tissues and cause further damage?  No, even police departments are not afraid to allow their policemen to spray a very strong pepper spray directly into the eyes of someone who is resisting arrest.   They know that cayenne does not damage even the delicate tissues of the eyes.

Did You Get Your Disease Because of Genetics, Bad Luck or Something Else?

Published by under Experiences,Health

Many people feel that getting sick or a disease is just bad luck or the luck of the draw.   I got prostate cancer because I was unlucky enough to be born into a family where all the men genetically got prostate cancer.   If I would have just been lucky enough to be born in another family I would not have prostate cancer, unlucky me.   Well despite what you have been led to believe, genetics does not give you cancer so luck has nothing to do with cancer or any disease at all, zero.

In other words you do not get cancer because you are unlucky genetically; there is a reason for your illness.   In our world of reality there are certain laws that apply to everything and one law that applies to all disease is the Law of Cause and Effect.   I drove my car over a nail (the cause) and I got a flat tire (the effect).   This law, applied to medicine, basically says that the cause is linked to the second event, the disease. 

But how can I say that genetics had nothing to do with my getting cancer?   Especially when I was born into a family where on my father’s side the men are susceptible to prostate cancer and that is just what I got.   Here is why; my genetically weak prostate is just that, a weakness and a prostate weakness does not mean that I am going to get prostate cancer.   I know what I just said does not seem to make sense but I will give you an example that will make it perfectly clear.

A chain is the perfect object to use as an example of genetic weaknesses.   There is a very old saying that goes like this, “a chain is only as strong as its weakest link”.   So let’s think about this for a minute, there is no chain that does not have a weak link and that link can be found by exerting enough stress on the chain to break the weakest link.   You could also say that any chain can be broken, and it breaks at exactly one link, the weakest one.

Now take this example a step further and imagine each organ in your body alphabetically beginning with your adrenals down to your veins is a link in a chain.   This chain of organs has a weak genetic link somewhere, you just need to apply enough stress on the organ chain to find the weak link.  

Now let’s apply this to my case; when I started to get symptoms I was unaware that my grandfather on my father’s side died of prostate cancer.   I was only told about my grandfather’s cancer when my family found out that I was ill.   I know it still sounds like it was just my bad luck to be born in that family where the men have a genetically weak prostate.   And this goes for every human being.  Somewhere in everybody’s body are weak genetic links.  

Why isn’t being genetically weak and getting a disease in that particular part of your body considered bad luck?   The answer is if you never put any stress on the chain then it will never break.   The same goes for your body; if you never put any stress on your genetically weak organs then you will never get a disease in those organs.    That is why luck and genetics have nothing to do with getting cancer or any disease.

Here is how that worked out for me.   I got cancer of the prostate because I put stress on my whole body by living like a typical American.   And when my body could not take any more abuse the weakest organ gave way and I got cancer of the prostate.

If I knew what I know now, I would have recognized what was happening from the beginning.   What I was not paying any attention to were all the symptoms mounting up.   The symptoms were my body trying to communicate to me that the stress was adding up and something was going to give if I didn’t stop the abuse and reverse things.   If I were as knowledgeable then as I am now I would have immediately stopped applying stress and do just the opposite, relieve the stress by reversing what I was doing.   The same is true of the chain being pulled in different directions, all you have to do is stop pulling on the chain and relax the tension and the chain will not break, period.

Here is the stress that I was applying to my genetically weak chain of organs.   I was eating a typical American diet of too much meat, refined grains and sugars.   I ate too many cooked foods and not enough raw, too much pasteurized dairy, no raw dairy at all, too much coffee, too many foods with chemicals in them.   I was not eliminating enough waste products and I was allowing toxic chemicals to build up in my body.   I had too much stress at work doing a job I hated and associating with negative people who were not my friends.   I was not exercising enough to unstress a physically and mentally stressed body.   I had no spiritual center to help me get through life.   I was a stressed man from the top of my head to the tip of my toes ready to break and I did.   

But like everyone else does when a symptom shows up, I either ignored it or I tried to dull it with medication.   Here are the symptoms; a complete loss of energy, feeling bloated and it seemed as though my food was not being digested and I had a lot of gas.   I never felt hungry and lost interest in food.  I ate my meals because it was time to eat not because I had a desire to eat.   I was gaining weight and my belly was hanging over my belt.   There was a nagging pain in my lower back that would not go away and I was stiff all over especially my lower back, knees and feet.   I was constipated and passing blood in my stool often enough to make me concerned about what was happening to me.   These symptoms went on for 2 years and I thought I was just getting old.   If I was in too much pain I took something for it to make it go away.   Then the full symptoms of prostate cancer showed up and the nightmare started (see my biography).

So I had about 3 years of getting more and more symptoms and my only answer was to ignore them or dull them with medication.   Plus I was developing a growing fear of the symptoms and what they might mean.   When I realized I had cancer I finely took action and I made a decision that was very uncharacteristically American.   Instead of going to a cancer specialist I investigated Naturopathic Medicine and decided to go in that direction.  

Naturopathic Medicine’s answer as to why I got cancer was my lifestyle was stressing my body and my prostate being the weakest organ got cancer.   They told me that if I wanted to cure my cancer I needed to unburden my body of all the stress that my American lifestyle had put on it.  I needed to change my lifestyle and do exactly the opposite of what I had been doing for years.   I needed to watch and change everything I brought into my body and that meant lots of raw produce, and juicing, distilled water, herbs and what are called Super Foods.   I needed to change the way I eliminated waste and cleanse and detox all the elimination organs of my body the bowel, kidneys, liver, skin and lungs.   I needed exercise to move my blood, lymph and respiration.   I needed to eliminate as much stress from my life as possible that meant stressful people and situations such as work.   And I also needed to seek and get firmly established on my spiritual path whatever that was for me.  

I got a list with detailed instructions and I went to work and I mean I went to work!   It was like I had taken on a very intense work load of chores that had to be done every day.   So I put in a regular 40 hour work week and I did this Naturopathic routine of chores that kept me busy from the time I woke in the morning until I went to bed at night.   But as I did these techniques I noticed that I was making progress because I was feeling healthier and healthier almost every day.   I realized that I was pulling out all the stressful mental and physical garbage that had built up over my lifetime that was crushing me until I could take no more.  

I ate hundreds of pounds of raw produce, I cleansed, I detoxed, I juiced and drank herb teas till I thought they would run out of my ears.   The stuff that came out of me was horrendous and it went on for weeks.   I took up yoga, weight lifting and jumping rope.   I changed employers and avoided negative people who were not my friends.  I worked on forgiving the old wrongs that had been done to me and that I had done to others.   And the toughest of all for me was I learned to love myself and established a very strong personal relationship with God.

Then one day I had a very dramatic realization that shook me to my very foundations.   My symptoms every one of them were gone.   I stood there dumbfounded going over in my head the inventory of each symptom and realizing that they were no longer with me.   It was as if I had been struck by lightning because I did not deep down inside believe that this would work but it did.   I was about three months into this intense Naturopathic program and I had been so busy doing it that I did not realize that the symptoms had stopped.   I was so happy that I was giddy and euphoric for about a week.   But I did not let up because I was told that this was not the end and that I needed to keep going to finish but you can read that in my biography.

Now do you see my point about why genetics and luck have nothing to do with disease?   They can only play a part in your health if you allow them to like I did.   And you can also see that there is a simple answer to curing all disease.   That is right, curing disease is simple not complicated unless you try to avoid the obvious.   Curing disease really is about the person not the disease.  

The reality is that despite what science says, there are no incurable diseases, not one.   That is right, it does not matter what type of cancer, heart disease, germ or virus you have they are all curable.   But there are incurable people who won’t change, or who like being sick or it is their time and God is coming for them.   For everyone else your disease is curable you just need to do the work of unburdening your body and giving it the tools and care it needs to cure the disease, it is that simple.

Are You a Health Millionaire?

Published by under Experiences,Health

I had an experience once that taught me that I was health rich beyond measure.   This was about 20 years ago and at that time I was selling exercise equipment for a nationwide outlet in a mall in Southern California.   I believed in the product and I enjoyed teaching people how to use the exercise machines and the benefits of a regular exercise program.   I did not make much money but I enjoy helping people improve their lives and I always have and always will.

 

One day a very nice young woman came into the store and asked for me by name.   She told me that I came highly recommended by a friend of hers who was very happy with the new exercise equipment I sold them.   I thanked her and asked her “how can I help you?”   She told me it was her husband who needed my help.   She said that he would come by the store later that day and that she wanted me to assist him.   I told her that I would be glad to help him.

 

She then told me that selling him on exercise and buying the equipment will not be easy that he is a tough customer.   She said that he owns his own business and he was used to getting his way.   She further said that he was recovering from a heart attack and multiple bypass surgeries, that she and the doctors were urging him to start exercising soon and he was resisting the idea.   The doctors had said that he needed to make some changes in his life like an exercise program or they feared that the next heart attack may be fatal.  

 

This very nice woman started becoming a little emotional.   She said “our life is wonderful together I do not want to lose him just when everything is coming together for us and our children.”   I assured her that if he had the slightest inclination to start an exercise routine that I would find it and move him to buy the equipment and get started.   We exchanged a few more words, she thanked me and left.

 

Later that day toward the end of my shift the lady’s husband came into the store and asked for me.   I met a very pleasant gentleman, middle aged, intelligent, successful but obviously ill and out of shape.   I took him through the different pieces of equipment we had, explaining the features and benefits.   At the same time I also explained how to begin an exercise program and its benefits.  

 

He listened patiently but I could see that he would have rather been anywhere but here in this store talking with me about exercise and its equipment.   Soon he was taking control of the conversation and steering it in the direction he wanted it to go.   I knew I was losing his attention and before long I would not be able to help him or his wife and children.

 

He started talking about all his business success, his property and showing me pictures of his RV and their place in the mountains.   He was really enjoying himself now as he talked about a motorcycle he had, his boat and many other things that he had acquired.   I kept silent as he went on and on but there was a realization I was coming to about him and his situation that I could not fully put into words yet.

 

He was now finishing up and getting ready to leave the store.    In another moment I was going get a handshake, a smile and his back as he walked out into the mall.   But during the handshake I caught him up and I said “Before you leave I need to tell you something personal that you need to hear.”   He looked a little startled and said “what’s that”?   

 

I stepped just outside the store with him and said “Let me tell you something I have been thinking about while you were talking”.    Here is what I said for garcinia cambogia extrakt, “Everything you have, your business, money, property, house, cabin, RV, motorcycle, boat, your power, mean nothing if you do not have your health.   They are only things that are worth less then the dust on the bottoms of your shoes without you.   You could go out today, lose everything and get it all back, which could be easy for you.   But you cannot buy back your health and not your family; they are what is important.   And without your health even your family is in jeopardy.”    I stopped talking and then stood there looking at him waiting for a reply.

 

I noticed he seemed a little red faced and a bit angry from the look on his face.   I thought to myself that possibly I was going to have a complaint logged against me by this man.   Then he started to talk “You know what, you have brought up something that I have not thought of in quite the way you put it, you got to me.   I will be back tomorrow afternoon with my wife and we will pick out some equipment so I can get started, thanks.”   He shook my hand again, turned and walked down the mall corridor toward the parking structure.   He and his wife were back that next afternoon just like he said and we completed the sale with no further problems.  

 

I still think about that incident in my life because it was a turning point of sorts for me as well as him.   I had really not thought about what I told him until just that moment when I spoke to him and that realization came together just then.   I myself had just recovered from a year and a half struggle with a cancer.   It was the same prostate cancer that had killed both my father and grandfather.     

 

It was a profound experience and I was of course elated that I had cured my cancer but until that moment in the mall I had not put any value on just how much it meant to me.   The reality was that the experience of curing the cancer had made me rich beyond imagining.   That experience gave me the ability to cure any disease and that is priceless.

 

I would never have to fear that some symptom I was feeling was a fatal disease.   I would never suffer with a chronic disease.   I would never have some doctor tell me you are going to be on this medication for the rest of your life.   I would never have to face chemo, radiation or surgical procedures for cancer.   And I couldn’t care less if I had medical insurance coverage.

 

How could I say that?   Simply put, I learned to cure my own cancer by using traditional Naturopathic medical techniques.   These Natural cure techniques were demanding there was nothing easy about it.   It was as though I had taken on a second job.  I was busy from the time I got up in the morning till I went to bed at night for over a year and a half.   I was constantly either cleansing or detoxing or purging garbage out of my body nonstop.   But I found the strength to do it because of the successes I was seeing in my health.   And I learned that it is within the capabilities of anyone to do just what I did.   Out of that Naturopathic experience I gained the knowledge of what it takes to cure any disease, period.   And over the nearly twenty years since then I have applied those techniques over and over for myself and numerous other people.  

 

I know what you might be thinking, “you may think that what I said is not medically scientific and has not been proven to work”.   Well, I did not have time to wait for medical science.   And quite frankly their track record and knowledge of what it takes to cure any illness is weak.   They have not cured one disease in over half a century.  

 

Naturopathic Medicine on the other hand has an ancient and honorable track record of curing disease for over 8,000 years.   Obviously such a long usage of herbs, foods and cleansing techniques by common man justifies their use of the term “Traditional Naturopathic Medicine” as a scientific description and definition.

 

But regardless of how what I just said plays out in the confused world of medicine, money and politics I found my answer.Read more baby registry ideas on Yunnan Baiyao Store.   And that answer as I said a thorough article has made me health rich beyond measure, how about you? Visit Disability Support Services & Workers – Melbourne & Geelong for more info. Are you health rich beyond measure, I think you and your family deserve to be don’t you?

The Mystery of Food Cravings, Weight Gain and Disease

Published by under Ailments,Diet,Experiences,Health

Here comes the food craving monster and it just has to have a dozen Oreo cookies with chocolate-chip ice cream and hot fudge sauce, or a bag of potato chips with your favorite dressing, a side of peanut butter on Cheez-it Crackers or chocolate, any kind will do, ppppp-please.   But nooo no no, you are on a diet and you have to have that tiny tiny dish of no cal, no fat, no salt, no carb, no taste Yuk!   Well good luck with the diet, because the craving monster is not going to give in until you do.   And you know, that deep down inside, you want the monster to win so that you can cuddle up in front of the TV and munch away at those goodies in a vain attempt to solve your favorite food craving.

The question is, why does your body and mind send you messages to eat the very things that make you fat and eventually sick?   What is wrong with your body and mind?  Why are they pushing you toward self destruction?   It is as though there is an empty place inside you that calls out for the junk, but no matter how much junk you pour in, it cannot be filled.   While in the mean time your body blows up like a balloon and disease is waiting around the corner.

Actually, there is absolutely nothing wrong with your body or your mind.   That’s right, your body and mind are just fine, running just exactly like they should.   Let me make this absolutely clear.  Your body and mind are doing exactly what they were programmed to do.   And your body and mind will do this even if your stomach is full, which I am sure many of you have experienced.             

What is the program your body and mind are on that would do this to you?   It is a nutritional program, a program that is trying to get you to eat the nutrition it needs for optimal functioning.   To run at peak performance your body needs certain amounts of water, proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and friendly bacteria, etc.   Some of these are needed in large amounts and some in micro doses but all of them are crucial for peak performance and isn’t that what we all want, peak performance?

Peak performance, well what does that have to do with my body craving junk food, there is little nutrition there?   That, my friend, is just the point and a big part of the craving problem.   Your body does not understand that there is little nutrition in those foods.   Your body depends on taste to tell it if there is nutrition in the food you eat.   Most junk food is either sweet or salty tasting and your body senses sweet or salty as containing the nutrition it needs (the other flavors are sour, bitter and umami).    

Let me approach this from a different angle.   The craving is your body saying to you that there is some nutrition missing and it needs to be replaced.   Your body cannot hand you a list that says I am missing vitamin C, iodine, magnesium and potassium.   Your body can only get that message to you by giving you a craving to eat foods that have the taste that tells your body the nutrition is there, salt and sugar etc.

Of course we both know that the food manufacturing companies have refined the nutrition out of the junk food.   Well what about the regular food you eat?  What about the nutrition that is in those foods, and what about the produce?   Many of those foods were grown using poor farming methods, refined, altered genetically and irradiated to extend shelf life, which also depletes their nutrition and gives you cravings for what is missing.   Oh, and lets not forget the cooking.  When the food you cook reaches somewhere between 112 and 118 degree Fahrenheit you destroy even more of the nutrition your body needs.      

Now you might very well ask about those expensive vitamins you take every day.  Some of them say that they have thousands of times the minimum daily requirement (MDR).   Sorry no cigar, easily 95% plus of those vitamins are synthetic made from chemicals not food.   Nature, God bless her, has a basic law when it comes to the nutrition of living things; “we can only get our nutrition from plants”.   We cannot sidestep that law and eat dirt, so if your vitamin does not say “made from whole foods” or something to that effect, then it does you little good and that goes for food based as well.   Plus having thousands of times the MDR is confusing to your body, a meaningless sales gimmick that will not stop the cravings.      

Are you beginning to feel like you are between a rock and a hard place?  I know how you feel, I felt the same way when I discovered this.   It is why America is now the fattest country in the industrialized world today, with 70% of our people overweight and 20% of them obese.   So, at least now you know that it is not you or your body’s fault if you are overweight, or that you are weak in the face of these food cravings, because you were not aware till now what was going on.

“Wait a minute,” you might ask, “what about genetics, my thyroid, low metabolism, my hormone imbalance?”   Common sense tells us that the genetic makeup of the country does not change overnight.   Your genetic make up and all the organs in your body from your skin down to your bones are all tied to the nutrition your body receives.   If your body is depleted of any of the essential nutritients I spoke of before, things will not run as they should and you will start to experience symptoms.   Symptoms, like headaches, indigestion, skin problems, weight gain, dry and brittle hair (see my article “Nutritional Debt” for a full list of symptoms); until something gives way and you become sick.   Taking drugs for a disease of nutrition will lead to another disease, and so on until you have many diseases and many drugs; I see this all the time.

So until you get enough nutrition in your body you will not know if a disease you have is real or just a nutritional problem.   The worst I have seen personally, was an obese man with 5 diseases on 19 prescribed drugs telling me he just wanted to see his son graduate from high school.

So what can you do to solve this problem and protect your family and you from what is happening?   You need to get enough nutritious foods to help offset what refined foods have taken.   Produce, though we have been taught differently, has been scientifically proven to be the most concentrated food on the planet.  But the produce most markets carry isn’t the best, as I described above, but there is a trend to bring organic produce into most chain markets today.   Farmers markets and health food stores can help you and as a last resort take what is available until you can locate a better source.

Here is the optimal way to reverse what has been happening to you; at each meal, gradually bring in more raw produce till you are eating 70% of your meal (for the average person that works out to about 1 to 1½ lb or .4 to .7 kg) in raw produce.   I know, I know that sounds like a lot but if you do it gradually and juice some of it if you like, you will find that the benefits will make it well worth your while.   It will alkalize your body, drive away those symptoms I described, like the headaches and indigestion; plus your skin and hair will get more youthful and you will discover energy you never knew you had.   If I were you I would start with the morning drink for breakfast (see my article The Morning Drink).

There is a way to speed-up this process and that is by adding a whole food supplement as I spoke of before.   Adding food supplements will also help fill that nutritional hole and you will start feeling naturally full after a meal, not like you just swallowed a bowling ball.   Gradually the cravings will go away and you will move to your genetic weight as I did.   Here are some products I have used that will speed up the recovery process  Earth’s Nutrition, Bountiful Blend or Vita-Mineral see their benefits and ingredients below.

Vita-Mineral

Most multi-vitamin formulas are primarily synthetic (e.g. petroleum-derived) vitamins plus crushed industrial rocks, yet even peer reviewed medical research has concluded that food vitamins are superior to synthetics. Numerous scientific papers have concluded that Food vitamins and minerals such as Vita-Mineral are better than USP isolated ‘nutrients’ because they contain important enzymes, peptides and phytonutrients which are critical to the utilization of vitamins and minerals that are lacking in isolated USP nutrients.

Contains in Tablet Form naturally occurring calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, carbohydrates, lipids, proteins (including all ten essential amino acids), monosaccharides (including all considered essential), and superoxide dismutase as found in enzymatically processed Saccharomyces cerevisiae, acerola cherry, mixed citrus fruits, carrots, horsetail herb, alfalfa sprouts, kelp, soy, corn, and aloe vera extracts–all the nutrients shown above are contained in these foods. Unlike many so-called “natural” vitamin formulas, Food Vita-Mineral is a food vitamin (and not a synthetic isolate), it contains no synthetic USP nutrients, and only contains foods, food complexes, and food concentrates. Studies indicate that Food nutrients ARE better than isolated USP nutrients and are better absorbed, retained, and utilized than USP nutrients.

Cheating

Eating this way is perfect for your body but maybe a little too perfect for your mind.   So cheat once a week, yes that’s what I said, cheat!   Once a week completely throw the whole system out the window and completely cheat.   Go out somewhere and have an ice cream sundae or something like that, that is completely off this lifestyle change, once a week.   You have got to have some flexibility or you will just give up, it’s too much to ask, so like I said cheat.   The cheating will not hurt you because you have all those other days, when you were spot on, that will offset any cheating.    So completely relax, cheat and enjoy it.

Juniper Berries, The Powerful Kidney Herb

Published by under Ailments,Experiences,Health,Herbs

For each organ of the human body there is a herb that outshines all others in its ability to assist that organ when it is diseased.  Juniper berries are magic when it comes to the kidney and urinary tract system.  I say magic because I have seen it at work and its power to heal the urinary tract system is so powerful and fast that it seems magical.  I have seen the power of this herb help many people but the most impressive case I ever saw was a woman (a registered nurse) who had been suffering from urinary tract infections for more then 3 years.   Continue Reading »

The Aspirin Lie

Published by under Ailments,Experiences,Health

Here is my direct experience with “THE ASPIRIN LIE.”  I had been working with a middle-aged man who was not ill he just wanted to get healthier.  I gave him some advice on diet, cleansing, detoxing, etc.  He was very motivated and followed my instructions to the letter.  And the last time I talked to him he was doing very well and noticed a positive change in his health.  About 5 months went by and I did not here from him.  Then a mutual friend called me and said “did you here about so and so”.  I said no and she proceeded to tell me why I had not heard from him.  It seems that he had been struck by a hemorrhagic stroke that nearly killed him.  I could not believe it because the last time I saw him he was doing so well, it did not make sense.

Would You Change Your Life Style Rather Than Die?

Would you believe that your life style could cause you to get cancer?  Eighteen years ago, before I got cancer, I believed what modern medicine said about how you get cancer.  At that time they said it was genetic, that your ancestors passed down the disease to you.  I believed what they said, they were the scientists with all the answers.  Then I got cancer of the prostate and sure enough it runs on the men’s side of my family.  Luckily I made a very wise decision.  I decided to use Thompsonian Naturopathic Medicine to cure my cancer.  That meant that I was not going to use modern medicine, I was going to use natural healing techniques only.

WELCOME

Published by under Experiences,Health

At 46 years of age I noticed that my health was not what it was.  By the time I was 48 I had prostate cancer.  I do not trust modern medicine because of some bad experiences I had when I was young.  I decided to treat the cancer using naturopathic medicine.

I took full responsibility for my disease and my recovery.  I worked hard using every naturopathic technique I could find that made sense to me.  In 3 months I was symptom free.  In a year I was cancer free.  I loved what I was doing so much that I have devoted my life to helping others realize that there are choices out there.  Those choices will work if you will do as I did.  Take responsibility for the disease and work hard at your recovery.

Cancer is not complicated like modern medicine would have you believe.  Cancer is simple and has many weaknesses.  Once you know what those weaknesses are you can win if you do what it takes to undermine it.  Once you choose that direction listen to no one; they will try to discourage you.  Even my own family tried to weaken my resolve.  They could not help it, they were worried.  But do not stop or let up for anyone.  Keep pushing no matter what, and you will notice one day, like I did, “The symptoms are gone!”  And that, my friends, is the most intoxicating feeling you will ever experience.  Your life from then on gets more beautiful and fulfilling every year.
