Garlic

Allicin, the effective ingredient in garlic, is responsible to killing off the potentially harmful bacteria. In order to activate its antibiotic properties, garlic must be eaten raw, in warm tea, or in lightly cooked food.

Echinacea

Oil of oregano

Oil of oregano has antiviral, antifungal, and attacks pathogenic bacteria in your system without killing off valuable bacteria.  The key antimicrobial ingredient in oil of oregano is carvacrol. Make sure that your source is at least 70 percent carvacrol content, this will ensure to be more effective.

Manuka honey

One of the more better tasting antibiotics, manuka honey can be used for a wide range of pathogens when applied topically, including flesh eating bacteria and MRSA.  Unlike with hospital medications, there has been no trace to building a tolerance when using manuka honey in treating bacteria infections.

Collidal silver

Colloidal silver has been known as an effective antibiotic for centuries now. In the early 1900s, Alfred Searle, the founder of the Searle pharmaceutical company, discovered that it could kill some of the most deadly of pathogens. The main advantage was that it was rapidly fatal to microbes without any harmful affect on the person taking it.

Recent research has shown that colloidal silver can actually destroy antibiotic resistant microbes like MRSA, the bird flu, and SARS.

Mustard… Top Anti-Cancer Food?

Although the FDA’s official statement believes that there is no such thing as a “anti-cancer” food is ridiculous.  There are such foods that contain ingredients that contain powerful anti-cancer properties.french

Such foods include: carrots, oranges, celery, broccoli, grapes, nuts and more. While mustard seeds have the highest concentrated ingredients that fight off cancer causing toxins.

Mustard seeds are one of the most nutrient rich food condiment available today.  Why is that?  Because mustard seeds contains high amounts of Allyl Isothiocyanate (AITC).  The fascinating thing is that the AITC that is found in mustard seeds block out cancer-causing compounds that are found in processed meats such as hotdogs (sodium nitrite). According to a 2010 study in the International Journal of Toxicology, “AITC protected HepG2 cells against Cytotoxic and genotoxic effects caused by nitrite and the Nitrosamines.”

For example: French’s 100% Natural Classic Yellow Mustard ingredients are surprisingly simple:

  • distilled vinegar
  • water
  • #1 grade mustard seed
  • salt, turmeric
  • paprika spice
  • natural flavors
  • garlic powder

Five of these ingredients have anti-cancer properties: vinegar, mustard, turmeric, paprika and garlic.

This means when you are at a BBQ over the weekend and decide to have a couple of those big juicy hotdogs fresh off the grill, put a big glob of mustard on it to help fight off those potential cancer-causing nitrates that you will be consuming.

In fact, French’s mustard has been tested and results have been very clean and extremely low in heavy metals:

Lead: ZERO
Mercury: ZERO
Cadmium: .03 ppm (almost zero)
Arsenic: ZERO
Aluminum: 3.2 ppm (very low)

The facts are facts, and if you want to block out potential harmful cancer-causing toxins in your body, I suggest you include more authentic mustard into your diet.  Hope this will help you not feel so guilty at your next BBQ while your putting down those juicy hotdogs.

Aloe Vera is not only a very good skin care product, (Many cases, dealing with burn victims, have healed twice as fast when using this natural plant as opposed to silver sulfadiazine, a synthetic drug) but is great for the immune system. Research now tends to show its potential when dealing with cardiovascular problems and even certain forms of cancer.

Studies in India dealing with albino mice with stage-2 carcinogenisis have displayed the effectiveness when given topically or orally.They immediately noted that when DMBA and croton oil were used as a treatment on the test subjects, tumors consistently developed 100% of the time. On the other hand, the ones that were given Aloe Vera as a treatment were up to 60% less likely to develop tumors.

Further experiments, when introduced directly into the bloodstream, Aloe Vera was able to lower cholesterol levels, control blood pressure levels and improve circulation by making the blood more fluid. The results of these tests were a clear sign that consuming Aloe Vera will potentially lower risks of heart disease.

Bentonite Clay As A Detox

Bentonite Clay is a unique clay due to its ability, when hydrated, will produce an “electrical charge”. Upon the clay’s contact with fluid, its electrical components change, giving it the ability to absorb toxins. Bentonite is known for its ability to absorb and remove toxins, heavy metals, impurities, and chemicals. Being that it carries a particularly strong negative charge, this enables the Bentonite clay to bond with the positive charge that many toxins, chemicals, and/or heavy metals have.

Bentonite Clay is one of the safest, easiest, and least expensive detoxing substance available today. When these non-evasive treatments are properly used, they cause no harm. Rapid healings are often a result of these treatments, such as reduction in pain, irritation, and inflammation.  This is a great natural alternative to other detox methods that may have not met expectations or may have failed.

Clay functions in several ways:

  • Minerals that make up Bentonite clay (which the body cannot absorb) work together to absorb heavy metals and other toxins in the stomach. Clay taken internally can help improve intestinal health and keep the toxins from being absorbed into the body.
  • The energy of clay stimulates the revitalization and rebuilding of damaged cells and tissues.
  • Clay baths, poultices and topical applications, through clay’s strong drawing powers, help your body detox through the pores of skin. Through a pulsing action, clay will draw out infections, gangrene, heavy metals and toxins.
  • Internal parasites are drawn to the clay and can be expelled from the body.
  • Most clays are naturally alkaline and as a result, balance the body’s pH and reduce over acidity.

Calcium Bentonite clay is the natural detoxing agent that can be used internally, externally with poultices and full body applications, and by taking detox clay baths. These are highly beneficial methods for detoxification, especially for cases of heavy metal poisoning and radiation buildup. You should consider releasing the toxic burden of the body inside and out with a safe and effective Bentonite Clay detoxification treatment. That being said, it is important to know your clays are clean and pure, from a reliable source that provides lab testing and information to prove that it is a pure product.

The Importance of Mineralized Alkaline Water

Your body is constantly at work to balance a healthy pH level between acid (lower pH readings) and alkaline (higher pH readings) levels in your body to help it operate to its full ability. When your body is suffering from an imbalance in these levels your body has to work harder and pull these minerals from other sources in your body such as your bones, organs and tissues. So what is this pH balance anyways? The pH in chemistry stands for potential Hydrogen. The pH levels are measured on a scale of zero (0) to fourteen (14), less than 7 being acidic, and greater than 7 being alkaline. There is an optimal balance in acid vs. alkaline for our body, this number is 7.36 on the pH scale.

How does this effect us?

By not drinking enough alkaline water daily our body naturally goes through the process to do it for us. How does this happen? Our body will essentially through out bloodstream. It will collect the necessary minerals from out bodies organs, tissues and bones. One of the major minerals is Calcium, it has been said that with today’s diet of processed foods, sugars and pasteurized dairy (highly acidic diet) that we can potentially pass half our skeletal system through our urine over a 20 year period.

Many other organs such as the kidneys and liver, which maintain the acid/alkaline balance in our bloodstream cannot keep up with the acidic overload that we consume. Therefore, leaving harmful free radicals and various bacteria’s to be recirculated through out body. This leads to acidosis (an increased acidity in the blood and other body tissue).

Some symptoms of asidosis include:  fatigue, foggy thinking, weight gain, muscle loss, osteoprosis, anxiety/irritability and heart burn.

People can survive for many weeks without food, but only days without water. With air being the 1st, water is the 2nd most important element in our body, yet up to 75% of people are chronically dehydrated and severely damaging their bodies without even knowing it.
