Flu Shot Comedy

"DO NOT PANIC. Trust your own amazing self-healing
body, rather than Big Pharma and the fear-mongering
media. Remember, in the last swine flu scare in 1976,
only one person died from the flu. But 25 people died,
and more than a thousand had their lives destroyed
by the crippling effects of the flu VACCINE. Also note
that flu did NOT cause most deaths in the 1918 flu
epidemic - the killer was secondary bacterial infection
with Strep and TB"! Arthur Doerksen, Zapper Times 36, Nov 2009

Perhaps, many of us thought that herbs and herbal juice drink was something new. We may be surprised at what our parents and grand parents knew all along.

Jay Talks True Health and Healing

Why has so many made life so complicated. Life is really simple. When it comes to our health and healing our bodies its' really not some big complicated formula that we need. Nature provides that which is essential. All we have to do is be willing to try that which has been provided by our Creator. He has provided all that we need. Jay discovered this years ago. We can now learn from him.

Does Aloe Cure Cancer?

Does aloe cure cancer? This question has been asked a lot latley. The word cure means restoration to health or a sound condition. This would simply mean that if you had Cancer you would be restore to health. Your physical condition would be like it once was before you got cancer. In the Bible, in Jesus and beyond, men and woman were cure by Jesus and His disciples. If we take a look at the some of the one that were cure of their diseases we will notice several things. They were in some cases examined and it was reported that they were no longer in the sick state that they were once in. As a matter of fact they were just as well as any other person in that town. They had to take no medications, use no forms of equipment to get around or have to constantly keep checking themselves to see if the sickness or disease had return.

I quess I must ask the question does Jesus or His Father cure like this today. Has he forgotten that His creation suffer greatly from sickness and disease. The answer to this question is yes and no. By faith I say this because of two passages of scripture in the Holy Bible.One of the passages is found in the book of Exodus.It says'"If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee". That passage is found in Exodus 15:26 and the other is found in 3 John 1 :2,"Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth".

God wants us to be in good health. He wants us to be in good health and live so bad that he sent His son not only die for our sins, but also to restore us to the original state of man. He came to save us from our sins. Our sins have brought on sickness and disease in many cases. But, inspite of our action he still wants us to have life and life more abundantly. "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth". Has He abandone us? I have to say no. He has provided solution and this is just one of many. Does Aloe cure? I would have to say no. Why? Aloe doesn't cure the disease, but it does something even more amazing. It build up the body's immune system to fight off disease. When using this herb it gives us time to see how the wonderful machinery that we have been given works. This process also helps us to depend on God each and every as we as trying to build up the immune system. Let's take a look at what others are saying.

LifeStyle Medicine vs. Preventive Medicine

According to Wikipedia Preventative Medicine is defined this way, "Preventive Medicine or preventive care refers to measures taken to prevent illness or injury, rather than curing them". "It can be contrasted not only with curative medicine, but also with public health methods (which work at the level of population health rather than individual health)".There is another type of medicine that should be considered and that is "Lifestyle Medicine". What is Lifestyle Medicine? "Lifestyle Medicine (LM) is the use of lifestyle interventions in the treatment and management of disease. Such interventions include diet (nutrition), exercise, stress management, smoking cessation, and a variety of other non-drug modalities". "A growing body of scientific evidence has demonstrated that lifestyle intervention is an essential component in the treatment of chronic disease that can be as effective as medication, but without the risks and unwanted side-effects". This definition is given by the The American College of Lifestyle Medicine. I believe that Lifesytle Medicine is the medicine that this world so desperately need right now. What do you think?

A Diabetics Testimony

Type 2 Diabetes Part 1

Some years ago an experiment was conducted to see how fast a person could become a diabetic. This will actually shock some of you because when a person is called a diabetic or has sugar diabetes he or she automatically thinks that they should stop eating sugar. There is of course different types of sugar. So, some are confuse on what type of sugars they shouldn't eat. But, you must hear this when this experiment was conducted they found out that they could create a diabetic faster by feeding these little boys oil (fats) than sugar. Actually, a diabetic should be called a carbohydrate diabetic, even this term doesn't seem do it any justice. You see we play on words when we speak. Sugar can be sugar that is in the fruits, nuts, grains and vegetables. Then there's sugar that has been isolated from the fruit, grain, nut or vegetable. That latter is the problem. This is called refine sugar. What about the oil or fat. There is fat in fruits, nuts, grains and vegetables. The problem is the refined fat or fat extract out of the fruits, nuts, grains and vegetables. For example, Corn oil, vegetable oil, coconut oil, palm oil, canola oil, etc. Did you know that it takes about 9 feet of sugar cane to get 1 table spoon of sugar and 10-12 ears of corn to get 1 tablespoon of oil.

Would you sit down and eat 9 feet of sugar cane in one sitting? No way! What about eating 10-12 ears of corn in one sitting? No Way! We are eating these levels two and three times in one sitting. This is why our bodies are malfunctioning. It takes longer to process fat and also it overtaxes the pancreas. So, the statement made in the last article is correct.A low fat diet,plant food diet and exercise will reverse diabetes. The NEWSTART Program is a program that emphasizes lifestyle change. NEWSTART is a acronym for Nutrition, Exercise, Water, Sunshine, Temperance, Air, Rest and Trust in Divine Power. In the next article I will attempt to dig a little dipper on individual parts of the NEWSTART Plan. If you have type 2 diabetes there is hope.

Good News for People with Type 2 Diabetes!

"Medical research confirms that up to 50% of people with Type 2 diabetes can eliminate diabetes risks and discontinue medication within three weeks by adopting a low-fat, plant food diet and regular daily exercise."
Anderson, JW and Ward, K: High Carbohydrate, High fiber diets for insulin-treated men with diabetes mellitus. Am J Clin Nutr, 1979; 32:2312-21.

Science Agrees... Tests confirm low-fat diet alone reversed type 2 diabetes in laboratory animals.

In a scientific study released on September 9, 1998, " . . . While doctors have long known that weight loss can control diabetes, this is the first scientific study to show that type 2 diabetes can be completely reversed in animals by cutting dietary fat. Moreover, the findings suggest that reducing fat, not just weight, is a primary mechanism behind the reversal."
Richard Surwit, PhD et al, September '98 Metabolism. Duke University

A concurrent program at Weimar's NEWSTART® Lifestyle Center, in which type 2 diabetes patients eat a low-fat diet and exercise daily, is experiencing a similar success in reversing diabetes. Many are completely off all insulin and medication with a normal blood sugar. Neuropathy has been reversed and renal function improved in many. Atherosclerosis, the big killer of people with diabetes, also responds favorably to the NEWSTART® program.

* 50% of people with type 2 diabetes have normal blood sugar without medication in as little as three weeks.
* 80% with diabetic neuropathy have no more pain in their feet and hands.
* Other benefits of working this plan include:
* 80% of men have normal blood pressure without medication.
* a 25% drop in cholesterol is common.
* a 35% increase in exercise capacity occurs.

Dr. Hulda Clark Speaks

Dr. Hulda Clark speaks about health and disease.

The Smile Of A Warrior

I have been very busy this past week. But, I realize that some things are more important than others. The health of friends and family is of the utmost important to me. This week I have been working on a series of articles on diabetes. I believe in making things simple. I also believe that there is no room for mistakes when it comes down to helping others. When a Doctor makes a mistake lives are lost or weighed in the balance. One of the most devastating effects when a mistake is made is hope and confidence is scattered. Hope and confidence are aids to healing. The one who is sick and desire to get well must have the hope and confident attitude. It is true that those that have had hope die while trying to get well. But, so many have survived because of this hope and confidence that they have deep within. The confident attitude has a powerful effect on the body that medicine could never supply. This week I lost a friend. I think we all have lost a friend. Perhaps, many of us have never met him, but we remember him from his days in Oklahoma and in the NBA. He will be missed. We will miss his game, his music and his confidence. I think most of all we will miss his passion for life and his smile.

What Can I Do For Swine Flu?

The question that is now being asked around the world is'"what can I do to prevent Swine Flu"? The other question that is being asked is,"what can I do if I catch Swine Flu"? In the video above you will receive some helpful hints. I have to say that it's all about the immune system. The immune system must be boosted to prevent most diseases, if not all. One other factor is the ph balance of the body. The ph balance should be alkaline. Without getting to technical I'll just put it this way. Viruses will thrive in an acid environment. There are certain foods that we eat and drink that are high in acid. Theses foods are mainly denatured foods, with a few exceptions. What are denatured foods? These are foods that have been altered from their original state during processing, manufacturing or by other means. First, we must understand this there is acid then there's Acid. When we think of acid foods certain foods come to mind like lemons, limes, oranges or other citric fruits. These foods which contain citric acid," metabolize in the body to an alkaline ash". These citric foods are fine. It is the acid-forming foods which cause problems. I will attempt to break-down these food in several acid categories.

First, let's look at acetic acid. Vinegar contains acetic acid. What's wrong with vinegar? Vinegar "lessens the the alkaline reserve of the blood and tends to produce acidosis. Osis has to do with process or condition. Acidosis refers to an acid condition. In this case we are talking about an acid condition in the body. This is the condition that vinegar creates. Don't kill the messenger or the message. There is hope, vinegar can be substituted with lemon juice without the negative effects. The next acid that we are going to look at is Tannic acid. This acid "effect the mucous membrane of the digestive tract and especially the stomach".
It should also be noted that these acid foods, coffee, cocoa and some tea (mainly) caffeinated teas are culprits. Again, I must say don't kill the messenger. There are substitutes for coffee, cocoa and certain teas. Have you ever noticed that whatever you drink coffee it seems to effect your stomach and your breath? Whatever normally effects the stomach will effect the breath. Hmmmmmmmm.... Here are a list of substitutes that you may consider, roasted fruits, grains, herbs and nuts. I think that it would be best to give a few product names, Roma, Rostaroma,Teechino,Cafix, Pero and Postum. There are other that can be found in your local health store.

The last acid that will cause problem with boosting the immunity is oxalic acid.
This acid the body can not metabolize. To get rid of this acid it calls on the body to send out calcium. If there is no calcium in the reserves then the calcium will then come from the teeth and bones. What are some of the names of these foods? "Beet greens, parslane leaves, spinach, Swiss chard, rhubarb stems,cocoa, sorrel, black pepper,tea" are just some of the names of the oxalic acid foods. It is the caffeinated tea and processed teas that are also problems. Most of the items on this list can be substituted with a vegetable. Black Pepper can perhaps be replaced by Mrs. Dash herbal seasoning, Grain of Paradise or your homemade herbal/seed blend.

There are other factors that I have yet to mention about acid foods and denatured foods. Did you know that white rice, white flour,white noodles, etc are consider to be denatured foods? In most cases if it's white and it's not made from a potatoes then your might want to avoid it as much as possible. Most, if not all white rice, white flour, white noodles and white sugar has had most of the nutrient and fiber take out. Whole grain rices and flour are better for the immune system.

In conclusion, I must say with some alteration in the diet the immune system will be boosted. Some immune boosting foods that can assist the body in healing itself and prevent disease are Aloe Vera (Dr.Ritter), echinacea, pau d arco, garlic, onions, pineapple, broccoli, carrots,oranges, lemons, etc. There is one non-food item tha should also be considered in assist the body in healing itself and that is Dr. Hulda Clarks zapper.

Remember, there are laws that govern our being. Good whole foods,exercise,water, sunshine, temperance (don't over eat,or eat/drink that which is harmful), fresh air, proper sleep (7-8hour,preferably before 10pm) and trust in God.

Ex15:26 ..."if thou will diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all of His statues, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians; for I am the Lord that health thee".

Until, next time don't forget, Let's Stay Healthy to(2).

Two Possible Solution For Your Medical Problems

I send this comment because I have a strong desire to help those who wish that things could be different in their lives. For some they wish that just for a moment and others wish that things could be different for a life time. I believe that God has put this desire in me for such a time as this. It's at a time when the world is in need hope, joy and healing. I'm going to get right to the point. I believe in miracles and I also believe that God has a remedy everything. I also believe that he as allowed some to remain in their uncomfortable state so that we may love them like he loves us.There are many that we look at as handicap, but if we look a little closer we would see how gifted and beautiful they are. To all who read this don't take my word for it God is still in the miracle working business. All true knowledge comes from Him. Although, surgeons take credit for what they know. It is only God who has reveal this knowledge that they have.

To all who read this I want you to realize that there are inexpensive remedies for every sickness and disease on the planet. I want you all to see what I see after years of research. These two things stand out as like to other in my personal research. I'm not a Doctor so I will let you hear what Doctors who have also researched this have to say.

From Aids to Seizures these two things have work consistently like no other.

Please take some time and read and research for yourself. There are people in this world that love money so much that they would hide valuable truths from us preventing us from helping ourselves and our love ones. I'm just trying to help.

Being Overweight -You Thought It Was All Your Fault

If I told you that what you are eating is killing you you would probably say no way. Most people that hear things like this say," come on stop kidding". Then they say my grandmother and grandfather lived until they were eighty or ninety years old.They ate just like I eat. The question that should come to mind is did they live in good health. Does it make since eat what you like only to live to in pain everyday of your life? Being overweight can be painful physically and emotionally. But, I have some news for you. It's not all your fault if you are overweight. Recently, I read that 58 million people are overweight and 3 Million morbidly Obese. In years past the health of American was not like this. If you ask them how did they get overweight they may say I'm not really sure. Some of them may say that they just like food. There are those that love food and love to eat. But, they are not overweight. Why is that. There are some factors that have to be considered. On e factor is exercise. But, there is another factor that should be considered. The other factor that should be considered is what is in or put on your food. Highly processed food seems to be a problem to many of us. What goes into processed foods? High fat, high sugar, high oil and high salt are just some of the things that can be found in processed foods. These things not only lead to one becoming fat, but it also leads to disease. You may not believe this,but you are being targeted to buy and to eat these processed foods. Advertisement are everywhere to influence you. This is the truth. It's time that you see the proof.

Emotional Health - Chris Brown and Rihanna

Photo by Dimitrios Kambouris/ Getty Images

Who's really in charge of our emotional health? It appears that everyone from Oprah,Ellen DeGeneres is weighing in the Chris Brown and Rihanna situation. Yes, it is true that there was an altercation between them. It is true that Chris Brown as reported appeared to be the one that was doing all the hitting. The question is what sparked this violent altercation? Recent, statistics show that about one in three high school students have been or will be involved in an abusive relationship.We must stop here, Chris and Rihanna are not in high school.We must stop here and ask ourselves how many adult are involved in abusive relationship? Chris and Rihanna are young adults. The first question that came to my mind when I heard about this was what in the world are our young people seeing? According to the Oprah Show that air on 12th of March both of them have seen some type of abuse go on in the home as children. In an early interview on the Tyra Banks Show Chris Brown said he wouldn't want to hit a woman because he saw what happened to his Mom as a child. It effected him so bad that he would wet in the bed. Could it be that what they saw as children is now having an effect on them? Or could the aggressive or violence behavior that we all see everyday through the media be having an effect on them? We may never know. But, one thing that we do know is that this was never their intentions. Chris Brown and Rihanna have been the model young couple for some time now. It has been reported that Rihanna loves this guy. There has been no type of abuse or aggressive behavior reported until this night. So, why this night? Dear readers we need the answer to this question. We also need to know who is in control of your emotional health. Are you or somebody else?

Many woman are saying Rihanna get rid of the this guy. It is a tragedy that it would take two young people like Chris and Rihanna to awake the consciousness of America on domestic violence and emotional health. It is also sad that many will now give advice to Rihanna and come to her aid when all the details are still not clear. Do we not think that Chris Brown should also be given advised. It is evident that he does have a problem. I have yet to hear one person say Chris Brown apologized and just let her go. I have yet to hear anyone say Chris Brown tell your part of the story or Chris Brown you and Rihanna should get together and tell what happen to set the record straight.What many fail to realize in this situation is this, not matter what you say to either side they will have to make decision for themselves. They will have to make the decision for themselves because we can't make it for them. Rihanna can be saying that he made a mistake and that he will never make again. Chris on the other hand could be realizing now that he made the biggest mistake of his life. As we sit here and say what this one or that one should do they are going to live their lives regardless. Why? They are ultimately in control of their emotions. I'm sure some are saying it's the other way around. We all have a right to our opinion.

My friend learn a lesson about relationship. When two people get emotionally attached only they can seperate themselves. This is not to slight Rihanna or Chris, but this has to be said. In relationships abusive or non-abusive, individuals become selfish. In most cases one person just wants to be loved. They will go to the grave trying get that love from that person that they want to love them. This sometimes lead to possessive behavior.What do I mean by possessive behavior? What I mean is wanting that special person all to yourself. In some relationship one partner is smother by the other. They follow that person everywhere. They want to know whose is on the phone. Who is that sending you a text message? They want to be loved, but they have a touch of insecurity. They feel that they can't live without that person.The other person wants love, but they also want control. They want what they want, when they want, at the time they want it and that time is usually right now. It's kind of like the behavior of a baby. The baby cries for what he or she wants until he or she gets it. The baby throws a tantrum until he or she gets it. The baby because violent. I think you get the point.In successful relationship a compromise is worked out so that all will be satisfied. In most relationships especially in the beinning there a growing pains.True love ultimate takes control if that is what they want.In a non-successful relationship (or abusive relationship)there is simply no giving in on both sides. One accepts the abuse for love, while the other controls and abuses for what they think is love. These types relationship usually end tragically.

I have to say this.It is wrong for a man to hit a woman. It also wrong for a woman to hit and man, but it is more acceptable because men are suppose to be macho. It is also wrong to rape a woman. But, this also occurs with men. But, most men are to embarassed to standup and tell about it.They know that they will be look upon as a wimp. What I'm I getting at? This is my point we live in a society that has a double standard. A woman can yell her head off. She can provoke a man to want to knock her head off, but when a man does it it is called abuse, emotional abuse.

When a woman hits a man people say that the man should just walk away. Yet, when a man hits woman no one is telling her to walk away. During the Oprah show a teenage student was asked about the Chris and Rihanna situation. She said, "if she hit him then she deserve it". She look at this situation as if Chris Brown was defending himself. My friends abuse or violence is never right. We all need to learn how to handle situation without abuse and violence. You never know whose watching you. In Rihanna and Chris Brown situation the media was watching. If I could talk to these two young people I would say don't ever let anything like this happen again. Love each other, trust each other and most of all be honest. Finally,I must say this make your own choices in life because you will have to live with them. Don't ever let people make them for you. You are ultimate responsible for your emotional health and well-being.If you need help (this applies to both and all) get help before it's too late.

Help For the Flu Season

It has become the norm to get sick during the end of fall and winter. I would say that many get a least two to three colds during this time. Is there any solution to this problem? Recently, I became sick and I search for something that would help me to get back on my feet. I went to the local store hoping to get something close to natural as possible. What do I mean by natural? Well, something that doesn't contain any meat or meat by products. I was also looking for something without alcohol, caffeine, high sodium content and addictive pain relieving chemical. I was hoping to find something that also didn't have a high level of sugar in it. High amounts of sugar will weaken the immune system.

I figured I would try these cough drops that look like they would be as close to what I was looking for. At the time I had chills, a scratchy throat, running nose and a number of other symptoms. When I took cough drops, at the time I didn't have a cough. I really only pick them up because of my knowledge on herbs. This product contained echinacea which is an immune system builder. In just three days I was up and running. On a few occasion since then whenever I felt my throat getting scratchy I would take one or two drops. This would knockout whatever was coming out every time.

I'm a firm believer that you shouldn't have to pay an arm an a leg for a quality product. The product that I purchase was by a company called Ricola. It was very inexpensive. The name of the cough drops is echinacea and honey. This is written on the package. It work for me, perhaps it will work for you also.

The Talking Body - The Lips

This may sound like a funny subject to discuss, but I'll attempt to discuss it anyway. Lips, what are they used for? Lips are used for kissing and for express how one fills.
Lips are used to bring joy and happiness. When a person smile at you without showing their teeth it says that that person extending a greeting. That person is actually communicating a message to you. Our lips are used to talk for us when we refuse to say a word. The question I must ask is now that we know that we can used our lips to communicate with other; do our lips communicate with us?

Yes, our lips do communicate with us. I know that this may sound strange , bit it's true. When our lips are dry our lips could be saying a whole host of things.
Our lips could be saying:

Red lips or white lips that may burn slightly could a message that says:

* I'm getting too much wind (wind burned lips)
* I'm getting too much sun (white scaly lips,white or
red ring around the lips and mouth).
* I'm getting too much cold (white, chapped or peeling lips)
* I'm getting too much dry air or not enough water (dehydrated)
* I'm not getting the proper nutrition or I got some bad food.

Pumps and others odds things forming on the lips may be a message such as:

* That lip-balm is bad news
* That last person that you had sexual contact with has problems
* That something is going wrong inside the body

The lips communicate with us just like the skin and other parts of the body. We have realize that when the lips are talking we need to listen.
