Assorted health tips

Occasionally, the Supreme Lord Himself descends as the avatara (incarnation) Dhanvantari and re-inaugurates the tradition of Ayurveda. This extremely rare appearance of God is recorded in the Srimad Bhagavatam 1:3:17 – In the twelfth incarnation, the Lord appeared as Dhanvantari (Lord of medicine) from where all alternative medicine has sprung from. http://vedabase.com/en/sb/2/7/21

These tips below are what I’ve tried and tested over time for myself. It may or may not work for you, as everyone’s constitution is different. What may be food for one, may be poison for another. You have to listen to your own body and see what works best for it, but I share anyhow, just in case. 🙂 I will also try to update it regularly, if anything else springs to mind.

In this world permeated with refined deceptions, in which the powers that be, thinks they are the Supreme controller, we have to take our health in our hands at times to survive. ‘Power corrupts and absolute power, corrupts absolutely.’ We now have the added chemtrails/geoengineering saga to deal with, as you will see on the link below, which was aired on the Quest Channel also:

http://www.vimeo.com/16219493 – the throes, life throws us.

http://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/keyfacts.htm – flu shot anyone? I think not.

http://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/news/health/2015/01/02/flu-deaths-iowa-young-girl-dies/21214315/

I recently asked a gentlemen I met in a health shop and who is an advocate for healthy living, how to survive under this insidious inundation of chemtrails being sprayed over our heads in practically every country on the planet poisoning the air. He replied ‘lots of food grade vitamins and minerals.’ Basically  boost up the immune system by detoxing from toxins and pathogens and replenishing the body with living nutrition.

Speaking of which, Vitamin B12 is important to note for vegans and vegetarians like myself. If you don’t take milk products, some small amounts can be found in fresh aloe vera, physalis berries, good quality Irish moss/sea vegetables and  enough in this new (diabetic friendly) product called palmyra jaggery powder, obtainable from health shops or online. When supplemented, B12 is more bio-available in its methylcobalamin form or combined with the rare adenosylcobalamin, as opposed to cyanocobalamin. Iron should also be taken in its bisglycinate form, than all its other constipating forms and vitamin D3 as opposed to toxic D2.

Prevention is better than cure.”

Food – The stomach performs at its optimum with warm foods and liquids. Anything too cold too often and agni (the fire of digestion) is quenched. This then leads to ama (undigested food matter) lying around in the stomach which causes stomach problems and creates toxins in the blood. Preferably, food should  be at least 50% raw and 50% cooked. By raw, I mean, procuring a good Matstone or Samson cold-press juicer and extracting the juice from vegetables. A good guide book for  juicing with juice combinations is ‘Raw Vegetable Juices’ by:  N.W.Walker.

http://amazinghealth.com/AH-healing-fruits-vegetables-Dr_Walker

It is a small book with amazing information on how proper juice combinations can even cure many illness of the body. Vegetable juices alkalizes the body and in an alkaline environment, many pathogens cannot survive. Many people can’t stand the idea of drinking vegetable juices, let alone drinking it, but nothing cleanses, replenishes, restores, rejuvenates and balances the body like vegetable juices. Taken half an hour before meals, it sets the stage to digest other foods. Green papaya juice is best taken after meals, especially heavy ones.

As with any cleansing protocol, the body will go through a herxheimer stage, wherein, all the detritus is being broken down for elimination. Don’t be alarmed when that happens. That often unpleasant stage, will pass. Start slowly with the intake of vegetable juices and gradually build up, as the first thing they do is a good clean out of the colon. If you get stomach cramps, gas etc. as a result, stop for a day or two, then resume. This will give the liver time to deal with all the elimination, as often cleansing protocols do more cleansing than the liver can deal with in a given day. If you see your skin going yellow as result of drinking fresh vegetable juices, especially carrot, know that it’s the liver and lymph that is clearing from toxins. It will disappear as soon as the system is cleared out, which takes time.

Let thy food be thy medicine. Food for thought/thought for food.

Live blood analysis – many of you may or may not have heard of this. It’s a medical service in which a pin prick of blood is taken and put under a powerful microscope right in front of your eyes, to ascertain what is actually going on in the body.  Another look into your health, may also be a bioresonace, both of which you can research.

Tinnitus/noises in the ears – this is one of the most distressing ailments of the body, caused by various things in the body. Medical medium say it’s due to a virus, especially Epstein Barr, but some Naturopaths say it can arise from other things like gut dysbiosis etc. Anthony William’s medical medium protocol suggests raw celery juice taken anywhere from 4-16 oz a day, first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Many of you will know about him and if you don’t, look him up on the net at medicalmedium.com. as well as Eric Bakker on youtube on tinnitus and the connection with candida.

Teeth – Until recently, I didn’t know that the glycerine found in most toothpastes is not helping the teeth the re-mineralise, from the proteins and other nutrients found in the saliva. Glycerine blocks the tiny microscopic pores in the teeth and takes many many rinses to get rid of it from even one brushing. The teeth is porous, so using a good natural tooth powder or tooth paste without glycerine, will help to re-mineralise and nourish the teeth from the outside, as well as it gets nourished from the blood to the nerves. Using a tongue scraper (an oral hygiene device generally made of stainless steel) to clean the tongue, helps to maintain good health, overall.

Insomnia – big issue for many people. It’s not the easiest to say, do this or do that; ingest this or that remedy and it will all go away. It’s something you have to work at to keep under control. I find that a little raising of the heartbeat for 10-15mins per day, by walking, can have beneficial effect. It creates serotonin within the gut, which then supports melatonin in the night. Don’t sleep with a mobile phone next to your head and try not to think after 7pm at nights. Over thinking uses up neurons in the brain. Rather listen to some soothing music, or do something relaxing. Eating your last meal 2 1/2 – 3 hrs before bed helps. Fruits at night stimulate the kidneys, so best eat them in the day. Rooibos tea, aids sleep at night. More on sleeping below in this post

Sleeping – Again, magnesium is said to be beneficial to take before going to bed; works better along with calcium. Life Stream brands are a good brand. Best restorative sleep is few hours before 12 at night. Upon rising, simultaneously put two feet on the ground when standing; said to balance your day. A body full of toxins or undigested waste matter, can cause a lot of sleep disturbance. As well, deficiency in certain vitamins and minerals. We often eat to fill stomach, but are we getting enough nutrition? Foods containing high levels of melatonin, like cherries or mountmorency cherry juice and those with tryptophan like very ripe bananas (with dark brown spots) = serotonin (the feel good factor in the brain) = melatonin (sleep inducing substance in the brain). A nice cup of lemon balm tea also aids with sleep.

A little pranayama of anuloma-viloma can help to relax the mind before sleep also. You can look this up on the net. It balances the left and right hemisphere of the brain and aids with other problems of the mind.

Anal fissures/piles/hemorrhoids – Comfrey root is said to be good for internal healing of these afflictions. Make a brew from the powdered root, simmering 1/2 tsp to a cup of water for a minute or so and drink twice daily. If in doubt, take the comfrey leaf, instead. A diet with enough roughage is very important. Juniper berries aids in these ailments as well.

Candida albicans – no fungus hates caprylic acid more than candida. Found in organic raw coconut oil or taken as tablets. Start with a teaspoon on food once per day. You might experience some bloating or gas, as the fungus is being killed off. Again, stop for a few days or so if this happens, then resume. It’s recommended to take psyllium husk/Isabgol husk at bedtime to help pull out the died-off fungus. Very ripe bananas (brown spotted) encourages good bacteria growth in the gut, but do be mindful that if you have severe yeast infection, anything sweet will proliferate it and may symptoms worse. Eric Bakker is an expert in the yeast infection field, so do check him out and his youtube videos. Good probiotics helps and some good ones are Biokult, Prescript Assist and Probiotic 14.

Constipation – Insufficient magnesium intake can contribute to constipation. Try a good whole food formula. Raw spinach juice on its own or mixed with a little raw carrot juice, at a rate of ¼-1/2 cup at a time, is highly helpful for this problem also. It cleanse, repairs and replenish the entire colon. Best taken on an empty stomach for maximum effect. Amaranth flour porridge, I find, is very good for bowel motion and very nutritious. White flour, white rice, white pasta etc. are to be eliminated. Whole grains are best. Lots of steamed vegetables, especially the green leafy ones, supports bowel movement. Again very ripe bananas taken away from food, acts as a mild laxative. Eaten unripe or with other foods other than fruits, and it’s  a sure recipe for constipation or indigestion.

Migraine/headache – It is said in Ayurveda, that fruits and vegetables should not be consumed in the same meal; the same for fruits and milk, fruits and grains, as well as milk and grains, as the enzymes are incompatible for digestion. Yet, I find so many people eating exactly the opposite way. Proper food combination is important to consider, as the wrong way leads to a plethora of diseases in the body. Fruits – are best consumed on their own, an hour away from other foods. Oranges are said to be gold in the morning, silver in the afternoon and lead at night. Fruits are best taken in the mornings or early afternoons. Bananas, especially, should be eaten only when they are very ripe and looking spotted, as they otherwise create mucus in the intestines.

There is a theory that the only fruits you can have with other foods are apples, pineapples and papayas, because of their high enzyme content for support of digestion, but I know that fruits should not be eaten with any other food items. Again sufficient magnesium intake is good for migraine/headache. Or, Submerge your hands and feet in hot/warm water, then put a bag of frozen peas at the base of your skull. The heat on your extremities pulls the blood from your head, relieving some or all of your headache. Soaking the feet in magnesium crystals helps to increase magnesium intake in the body. Feverfew herb is effective for migraine as well.

Menstrual cramps – The good old hot water bottle is ok, but again magnesium plays an important role for this. Also, if you pulverise ½ inch fresh organic ginger in a mortar with pestle and put into 600ml of water and drink a small warm glass at a time, is very good. Or simply dilute few drops of organic ginger oil in some oil and massage it on the abdomen. Certain spices like rosemary causes excessive flow, so do note that during the first three days. Nettle leaf and raspberry leaf teas are helpful.

Intestinal parasites – Again celery juice is touted to be good for this, as mentioned above, as do cat’s claw, golden seal (two weeks on and two weeks off when taking golden seal). But see medical medium podcasts on intestinal parasites, as there are lots of information on how to tackle this problem. Website mentioned above, as well as Eric Bakker who has much to offer on how to clear intestinal parasites, effectively.

Bloating – this is one that many can relate to. Watch what you eat, as food allergy (wheat/dairy milk) is one of the main problems, as well as processed sugars. Other contributors are bad food combinations, deficiency in certain vitamins and minerals, especially zinc and generally gut dysbiosis. This can be corrected with the free help of Eric Bakker in his blogs and youtube videos.

Intestinal flora – there is nothing that upsets the gut flora more, like antibiotics and of course, pathogens. The more the system is cleansed out of ama (waste matter), the better. Lots of probiotics especially from fermented foods like yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut etc. But I’m no expert on these subjects. Eric Bakker is one Naturopath who is.

Also, a little lsd, lying (left side down) for 20 mins after eating, aids digestion. Don’t sleep though, as sleeping immediately after meals, puts pressure on the heart. Eating a very ripe (brown spotted banana) an hour after meals, neutralises upset stomach acids. As well, slippery elm powder dissolved in water, calms stomach upset.

Digestive aid (yoga asana) – the only yoga that can be done immediately after meals is Vajrasana. It cures indigestion, acidity, gas formation and constipation. Sit on a soft area and kneel as when about to pray. Keeping both knees touching each other, sit back upright on heels, ensuring the big toes touch each other. Keep both hands stretched forward on each knee and remain like this for 1-3mins. It will take a little practicing, but start with even half a minute until you get used to it. That is, if you don’t have severe problems with your legs. It should gradually be increased for up to 5-15mins daily after meals.

Digestive enzymes – peanuts are said to be enzyme blockers. Nature’s own digestive enzyme is the juice from very green papayas obtainable from Asian shops; best taken before meals. Or green papaya powder is available also. Peel and discard the seeds of the fresh green papaya before juicing or it can be grated finely to make a salad. Any other raw vegetable juice is best taken with a pinch of fresh ginger half an hour before means. This creates the necessary enzymes to then digest whatever else you put in the stomach afterwards. There are good broad-spectrum digestive enzymes you can buy and a good non-GMO one is by Designs For Health. Take immediately before meals.

Kidney stones cleanse – hydrangea root, gravel root and marshmallow root. Or Quebra Pedra also known as “stone breaker”, is used to support the kidneys in South America; especially good for kidney stones. For liver and gall stones, drink a combination of beetroot, carrot and cucumber juice. Not too much beetroot though, as it can cause nausea from its powerful cleansing effect. 25-30ml is more than enough, diluted in the juice. Dandelion root tea is good for cleansing and strengthening all the organs as well, but said not to be taken if one has stones.

Thyroid problems – iodine deficiency is a major cause of this disease as well as a myriad of others, including most problems of the reproductive system. Too much millet or tapioca/cassava, blocks iodine intake. Medical Medium has a lot to say on this subject and how to fix it…do check out the archive podcasts on it.

Mild depression/anxiety disorder – The herb rhodiola rosea and the amino acid 5HTP said to increase serotonin (the feel-good factor) in the brain, helps tremendously for this. Of course, it’s something you would have to do some research on and see whether it fits your bill. But these should not be taken along with other anti-anxiety or anti-depressant drugs. If you do, take only in their purest form…not with fillers, binders and all that nonsense. Again, check out Medical Medium for some help with this or Eric Bakker.

Prostate problems – Pumpkin seeds are paramount in helping to prevent and resolve problems associated. Put in a coffee mill or spice grinder and blitz to a powder. Take 1 tbl 2-3 times daily on food. Again, juniper berries are helpful and is also good for bladder infection. Or, daily take zinc supplements. Liquid zinc sulphate or zinc picolinate.

Uterine fibroids – anything refined, increases the tumors; white flour, white rice, white sugar etc. I have successfully shrunk my tumors before with the appropriate herbs under a qualified herbalist. Nettle leaf, raspberry leaf and dandelion root combination should help with this, proving refined foods are cut out or cut down. Again iodine and zinc deficiency  is very important to note. Cruciferous vegetables in their raw form/juice, eliminates excess oestrogen from the body, which is a major contribution to fibroids.

General tonic – Remember minerals can be taken on their own, but vitamins need minerals to absorb them.

Milk – should always be taken warm, spiced with little cardamom, ginger, cinnamon or turmeric, as otherwise it creates mucus in the intestines. Homogenised milk is not even worth looking at, what to speak of drinking. Read the fine print…Pasteurized milk, while not completely useless, is nonetheless, useless almost completely because the calcium and protein becomes inorganic through the high heating process, which interrupts the digestive system to do its work properly. The result being, stomach ailments in all shades of grey.

Sinus problems – https://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/heal-sinus-infections-with-no-antibiotics-really/

Golden seal tincture taken from 15-20 drops thrice daily, is indicated strongly for this, as do a sauce made from freshly grated horseradish combined with enough lemon juice to make a nice juicy sauce, you keep in the fridge for maximum one week. Taken at half a teaspoon, twice daily on an empty stomach is for all kinds of sinus problems, providing complex starches and refined sugars are kept to a minimum or cut out for a time, until healed. It will feel bit spicy like eating raw ginger, but it won’t irritate the organs and the body gets used to it over time…

Nuts – are best had raw, as the heating process to roast them, causes them to loose vital nutrients. Better still, soak in water for 24hrs, rinse and chewed thoroughly to not disturb vata (the governing air element) in the body. Almonds should be soaked and the skin removed, as the skin contain a type of toxin. Best nuts for healing are cashew, almonds, brazil nuts for their high selenium and walnuts.

General flu/cold – Simmer in a pot, 1/2 inch  grated ginger with 2 cups of water for a minute. Then add 1tsp fenugreek powder and 1/4 tsp turmeric and immediately turn off fire. When cool down to almost room temperature, add 2tbl of lemon juice and sweeten with raw honey to taste. Honey should not be put into very hot liquids or should it be heated, as it becomes poisonous. (organic recipe). Up your zinc and vitamin C levels.

Alternatives to gluten – Morio/samo seeds, teff, whole oat groats or steel cut oats, rice of all colours, millet, buckwheat, quinoa of all colours, maize/polenta and amaranth. Amaranth flour makes for a lovely porridge. If you have problem digesting oats, try soaking them in warm water for min 7hrs, then simmer for few mins and have as you like with maple syrup or soaked dried fruits.

Salt – remember, good salt is good for the body, as are good fats which protects the cells, though not too much fat, as too much in the blood causes problems. Unrefined sea salt is the best… there are no salt mines in the Himalayas. That pink salt I used to think was God’s gift to man, is best for other uses (strewn on the pavement when it snows, perhaps) than taking internally. How it it sourced, where it is sourced and its components… you don’t want to know.

“Better to walk around with your head in the clouds, dreaming of a better quality of life, than with two feet on the ground, sleep-walking, in the darkness of ignorance.” 

To have a life worth living or to live a life worth having, is the question. See Medical Medium books to fully recover your health or listen to the archive podcasts on the website or read some of the blogs. He regularly posts on face book as medical medium….

A jolly good wish to you all for good health 🙂
