Natural Remedies on How to Treat Diabetes with Nigella Sativa

Natural Remedies for the Treatment of Diabetes

by Tony Isaacs, citizen journalist

(NaturalNews) Diabetes is a metabolic disorder in which blood-sugar (glucose) levels are above normal "either the body doesn`t produce enough of the hormone insulin, which breaks down sugar in the blood, or it cannot utilize its own insulin properly. Diabetes can cause serious health complications including blindness, kidney failure, heart disease, and even limb loss. The good news is that if you are one of the 20.8 million Americans struggling with diabetes (type 1 and type 2 combined) there are natural approaches to help avoid these life-threatening conditions.

As in almost all areas of health, exercise and proper diet can help tremendously for diabetes. That does not mean a heavy exercise regimen nor does it mean a radical weight loss. Moderate exercise and a weight loss of only 5% or slightly more can make a substantial difference (and that holds true for those considered significantly overweight as well as those carrying a few pesky extra pounds. To achieve a 5% or more weight loss may require no more than cutting out soft drinks and taking regular walks for example. At any rate, losing 5% is easily achievable with modest exercise and a sensible diet that includes plenty of vegetables, especially raw and lightly steamed vegetables, some fruits (though little or no fruit juice because of its high sugar content), fermented whole grains, and getting rid of dangerous trans fats.



Iodine and Diabetes:


Iodine is a key element in fighting diabetes because it helps regulate the thyroid and is essential for a healthy liver, gallbladder, pancreas, spleens and more. While it is well known that diet, obesity, food allergies, viral infections, and stress are all contributing factors for diabetes, it is less widely recognized that these factors are often either a cause of or caused by a weak liver, spleen, and pancreas.

For example, obesity is the result of poor diet and/or a sluggish liver which causes a sluggish metabolism. A sluggish liver is often associated with gallstones because the liver and gallbladder are interconnected. And gallstones are formed because of "bile stasis" due to a sluggish gallbladder. Fatty liver (a common complication of diabetes) is also an indicator of liver weakness, and chronic diarrhea (yet another common diabetes symptom) is caused by a weak spleen according to Chinese medicine.

It is well known that diet, obesity, food allergies, viral infections, and stress are all contributing factors for diabetes, but my understanding is that these factors either cause or are caused by a weak liver, spleen, and pancreas.

Fatty liver (a common complication of diabetes) is also an indicator of liver weakness, and chronic diarrhea (yet another common diabetes symptom) is caused by a weak spleen according to Chinese medicine.

In women, iodine`s ability to revive hormonal sensitivity back to normal significantly improves Insulin sensitivity and other hormones.

For diabetes, take at least 50 mg per day of Iodine (a combination of both elemental and potassium iodine) and selenium must also be taken in order for iodine to work properly.

Natural Remedies for Diabetes:


In addition to sensible dieting and physical activities, the following have all shown the ability to help with diabetes:

GTF Chromium (Glucose Transport Factor Chromium) - The primary role of insulin is glucose transport is the primary role of insulin, chromium`s main function is increasing insulin`s efficiency in regulating blood sugar levels. In one study of 180 men and women with Type II diabetes, researchers divided the subjects into three groups, each receiving twice daily doses of either 200 mcg or 500 mcg of chromium or a placebo. The patients were allowed to continue with their usual diet and medications. At the end of two months, those who took 1,000 mcg of chromium daily showed significant improvement in insulin response, the number if insulin receptors, and levels of blood lipids (fats and cholesterol)0. It took four months the group taking 400 mcg chromium daily to improve as much as the higher dosage group. However, all the patients taking chromium showed measurable improvement in their diabetes-related symptoms

Pycnogenol Pycnogenol is a powerful antioxidant derived from French maritime pine tree bark and the subject of more than 180 studies over 35 years which has been shown to reduce high blood pressure, LDL cholesterol and blood glucose without affecting insulin levels. Of particular note is its ability to reduce leakage into the retina by repairing capillaries in the eyes. While still largely unknown to American doctors, Pycnogenol is the leading prescription for diabetic retinopathy in France.

"Oleander Extract" - A carefully prepared aqueous extract of the oleander plant made according to the directions in the book "Cancer`s Natural Enemy" by Tony M. Isaacs or available in essentially the same form as Sutherlandia OPC (which also contains 20% Sutherlandia frutescens, the famed "South Africa Cancer Bush") online at http://www.sutherlandia.opc . Diabetics who have used this remedy report being able to either reduce or eliminate medications altogether, often being able to control their diabetes with diet alone. Note: Oleander is highly toxic in raw form, but safe when boiled and strained according to the directions in the book.

Bitter Guord - Make a watery juice of a small Bitter Guord (remove seeds) and drink every morning. Bitter Guord also helps to clear pimples and maintain a good skin, and is good for de-worming the intestines.

Blackseed Oil (Nigella Sativa) Also called black cumin seed (be sure that it is Nigella sativa regardless of what it is referred to as). Blackseed oil is legendary for its medicinal properties and has been used for thousands of years (Click here for more information). Preliminary research in animal trials has shown that that an extract from Nigella sativa seeds can reduce elevated blood sugar levels and the antioxidant activity of the extract may prevent the complications associated with uncontrolled type II diabetes.

Fenugreek seed - Soak fenugreek seeds in about one teaspoon in water at night, drink that water in the morning and chew and eat the soaked seeds. Helps reduce blood sugar.

Green plaintain peels - Wash a green plantain and peel it, then put the peel in a jar and cover with water. Let sit overnight, and then drink this water three times a day. Lowers your blood sugar level. Keep drinking as needed and change the peel every other day and refill the jar with water.

Mullaca - Mullaca is employed in herbal medicine systems today in both Peru and Brazil. In Peruvian herbal medicine the plant is called mullaca or bolsa mullaca. To treat diabetes, the roots of three mullaca plants are sliced and macerated in 1/4 liter of rum for seven days. Honey is added, and 1/2 glass of this medicine is taken twice daily for 60 days. In addition, an infusion of the leaves is recommended as a good diuretic, and an infusion of the roots is used to treat hepatitis. For asthma and malaria, the dosage is 1 cup of tea made from the aerial parts of the plant. In Brazilian herbal medicine the plant is employed for chronic rheumatism, for skin diseases and dermatitis, as a sedative and diuretic, for fever and vomiting, and for many types of kidney, liver, and gallbladder problems.

Agaricus Blazei Murrill (ABM) Mushroom - referred to in it`s native Brazil as "The Mushroom of the Gods" with good reason due to it`s amazing immune boosting and disease fighting properties. Available in health food stores and online at various sites.

Alpha Lipoic Acid - In Germany, alpha-lipoic acid is an approved medical treatment for peripheral neuropathy, a common complication of diabetes. It speeds the removal of glucose from the bloodstream, at least partly by enhancing insulin function, and it reduces insulin resistance, an underpinning of many cases of coronary heart disease and obesity. The therapeutic dose for lipoic acid is 600 mg/day. In the United States, it is sold as a dietary supplement, usually as 50 mg tablets. (The richest food source of alpha-lipoic acid is red meat " but to insure proper health, use lean cuts of organic beef that has not been subject to antibiotics or feed lot practices).

Cat`s Claw "Used by indigenous tribes in Peru and South America to treat diabetes. Available at health food stores.

Cinnamon - Cinnamon has been shown to help regulate blood glucose levels and several studies indicate that it may be helpful against diabetes, particularly type II diabetes.

Other Good Foods and Supplements - Almonds, apples, oranges, and substances high in omega three oils (olive oil, flaxseed oil, fish oil, borage oil).

Nigella Sativa May Help Fibromyalgia

Use Natural and Alternative Help for Fibromyalgia

by Tony Isaacs, citizen journalist

Fibromyalgia is a misunderstood and frequently misdiagnosed condition. It is characterized by widespread chronic pain involving multiple "tender points" in the upper neck, back, shoulders, and hips. Treatments, such as painkillers, antidepressants, muscle relaxants, and the injections of anesthetics are rarely effective. However, many may find relief from nature and alternatives as opposed to mainstream drugs and treatments.


A natural alternative which may heal fibromyalgia is to take plenty of colloidal silver (start off with 2-4 ounces per day and maintain at least an ounce a day until you achieve satisfactory results) and plenty of proteolytic/digestive enzymes to dissolve the fibrin (take up to 5 or more capsules two to three times daily on an empty stomach).

Here are some additional options:


Curcumin, magnesium, blackseed oil (Nigella sativa) and herbal oleander extract are all powerful immune modulators which may help. Magnesium deficiency has been associated with Fibromyalgia and it is estimated that as many as 80 to 95% of us are deficient in magnesium.  I just love Ease Magnesium Spray.

Consume apples and/or apple juice. They contain "malic acid", a substance that appears to ease pain and inflammation. Consume at least 2 apples, or 2 8-ounce glasses of juice daily.

Other good dietary practices that may help are:


* Eat plenty of essential fatty acids and omega 3's.
* Cut back on consumption of whole grain foods.
* Avoid sugar, artificial sweeteners and foods containing bleached flour.
* Eat yogurt which contains active yeast cultures.

Try acupuncture. The National Institutes of Health has deemed acupuncture to be an acceptable alternative, or part of a comprehensive treatment program, for several types of pain. Acupuncture is a 2,500 year-old practice, and the Chinese believe it works by affecting the energy pathways called "meridians" that run through the body. The "meridians" are thought to carry "qi" (pronounced chee), an energy force that must be in precise balance for good health. Poor health habits, such as getting too little sleep, eating the wrong foods, etc. cause qi to become unbalanced. Acupuncture rebalances qi by stimulating specific points along these meridians with extremely fine needles.

Fibromyalgia has also been associated with heavy metal contamination. Parsley, chlorella and cilantro are all good for removing heavy metals.


Consider niacin and niacinamide. Niacinamide slows down phase 1 of the body's natural detoxification process while niacin speeds up phase 2. Niacin is also known as inositol hexanicotinate, vitamin B3 and nicotinic acid. The body's natural liver detoxification process involves two steps: Phase 1 and Phase 2. In Phase 1, toxins are reduced to smaller fragments. These fragments then progress to Phase 2, where they are bound to glutathione, glycine, sulfate and other molecules. In the process, new non-toxic molecules are created that are eliminated via the bile duct, urine or stool. In effect, Phase 1 either directly neutralizes a toxin or modifies it to form intermediates which are then neutralized by one or more of the several Phase 2 enzyme systems.

One or both detoxification phases can be overloaded and/or inefficient. A particularly damaging combination for someone who is ill is an excessive overload of toxins coming into Phase 1 and an inefficient Phase 2. Such a combination is believed in many instances to be the cause of marked environmental sensitivities and drug intolerances and interactions that characterize many fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue sufferers.

Do not give up on exercise. People with fibromyalgia often stop exercising because it is painful. However, inactivity weakens muscles and makes them more sensitive to pain. Low impact aerobics, conditioning exercises, such as swimming, stationary bicycling or stretching, are often helpful for people with fibromyalgia.

8 Remedies to Treat Diabetes Naturally: One is Nigella Sativa

Kirt Tyson, former type I diabetic was interviewed by Mike Adams. In the interview Kirt Tyson revealed that his diet was completely raw with no fruits. He ate only vegetables, seeds and nuts. He cured his diabetes on this simple 30 day raw diet. The once debilitating disease can now be treated with going on a raw diet and making some life changing decisions. Not only can you go raw, but you can also use these eight natural herbs and remedies to survive diabetes.
There are many remedies available today and some work better than others. Like the raw diet, it all depends on your body and your genetics. No cure works one hundred percent of the time for everyone. A raw diet is only the beginning. Continuing to eat healthy for the rest of your life ensures that you too can be free of this disease returning.

Besides going raw and eliminating sugar out of your life, you must switch to raw milk or its alternatives. In the book, The Devil in the Milk, Dr. Kevin Woodford explains how the type of milk we drink, directly reflects of the high incidence of many diseases, including diabetes and cancers. There are many substitutes available from almond milk to oat milk. They are extremely healthy and easy to make.

Eight Types of Natural Remedies Available Today:

Buy Live Fig Tree
1. Fig Leaves

Fig leaves are best known for treating diabetes, but there are many other uses for the fig leaves. There are many homemade remedies from treating diabetes to treating bronchitis, genital warts, liver cirrhosis, high blood pressure, skin problems and ulcers. Fig leaves are not used as much as they should be. Most of the remedies for the fig leaves use the sap or the milk of the sacred tree. Fig tinctures or poultices should be used immediately and fresh batches made daily.

The big news with the use of fig leaves is that they have anti-diabetic properties. The diabetic needs less insulin when on a treatment of using the fig leaf extract. The diabetic should take the extract with breakfast, first thing in the morning. An additional remedy is to boil the leaves of the fig in some freshly filtered waster and drink this as a tea. Read the whole article on fig leaves and diabetes:

2. Black Seed

Black seed, also known as Nigella Sativa is a cure for all diseases, except death and considered to be a miraculous cure. It has been used for everything from acne to pancreatic cancers and doctors are raving about the results. Read about this remedy that has been used for over 2000 years.

http://www.naturalnews.com/026868_N...

For seven days take 6 teaspoons of the oil. Take the oil three different times of the day. Then take 2 teaspoons in the morning and 2 in the evening for 4 days. Follow by taking 2 teaspoons of the oil for two days. Take plenty of water in the morning and rub the oil all over the body for 10 days. You must mix the oil with fruit juice. Repeat this treatment if you do not see any improvement.

Another remedy for the treatment of diabetes is to take one half cup of the seeds that have been heated and a half cup of water cress seeds (mustard seeds can be substituted) and a 1/4 cup of ground pomegranate peel. Place these all in a blender and pulse well to a fine powder. Add in 1/8 cup of fumitory. Each day take one teaspoon of the ground powder and one teaspoon of the oil, one hour before you eat. Do this for at least one month.

3. Fenugreek

Take 5-30 grams with each meal or up to 90 grams once a day. Do not take more than 100 grams as it will cause an upset stomach and make a person nauseated. Fenugreek cannot be taken at the same time as other medicines. You must wait at least one hour and preferably two before taking fenugreek. Diarrhea and gas are common side effects of fenugreek.

Warnings about taking fenugreek: If you notice these side effects stop taking fenugreek right away: difficulty in breathing, tightness in chest, rash, swollen and itchy skin. Also if you are pregnant, consult your physician before taking fenugreek.

4. Cinnamon

Cinnamon has long been reported as a good source for the treatment of diabetes, due to a study done in 2003 by Khan and associates. 60 people were tested in the group and one third of the group was given a placebo. The end results were very impressive and the overall health of the group was increased with glucose down 18 percent; LDL cholesterol and triglycerides also showed reduced levels. Everyone was excited and the word of using cinnamon spread.

According to Cancer Tutor.com, "At least 1/2 teaspoon a day, which is critical to "soften" the cell membranes. Cinnamon mimics insulin, thus it may lower your need for insulin immediately."

5. Grape seed Extract

Grape seed extract has been proven to improve the conditions associated with this disease. Grape seed performed greatly in studies conducted in 2006 in Toyama Japan, in 2009 in Romania and also in Portsmouth UK. Grape seed was successful in protecting the liver cells and setting up defense mechanisms against reactive oxygen species produced by hyperglycemic conditions.

Grape seed comes in capsules of 50-100mg. It is usually suggested to take 50mg per 50 lbs of weight, not to exceed 300mg per day. Whole grape seeds are the best alternative, which need to be ground and placed in vegetarian capsules. Taking 3 capsules a day is enough. The time of day does not matter.

6. Olive Oil

The Department of Health Sciences of the University of Jaen is researching the correlation between preventing diabetes and the consumption of olive oil. Through research, they have found that an oil rich diet may prevent diabetes. By using olive oil, you can reduce your blood levels including LDL and triglycerides.

By olive oil reducing the cholesterol levels, you can prevent such diseases as cardiovascular, atherosclerosis and diabetes. Prevention of diabetes begins with weight management and proper diet. The Mediterranean diet has been shown beneficial in the treatment of diabetes by using olive oil, which is monounsaturated instead of saturated fats.

Before sleeping drink 1/4 cup of olive oil. If you prefer to use lecithin, mix one tablespoon of lecithin with one tablespoon of olive oil. Keep in mind that one cup of olive oil has 2000 calories. Just because it is healthy does not mean a person can ignore the calorie intake.

To learn how olive oil cures over 60 diseases, read this article:

http://www.naturalnews.com/027094_o...

7. Bitter Melon

Researchers have proven that bitter melon works great with the treatment of diabetes. It contains insulin like properties which help in the lowering of the blood and urine levels. It is suggested to be used frequently.

The bitter melon should be juiced and then taken on an empty stomach before eating first thing in the morning. The seeds may be ground to a powder and eaten also. You can also, make a tea from the bitter melon.

8. Vitamin C and Diabetes

Researchers have found that using from 100-600mg of vitamin C daily can cause you to normalize your sugar levels, in as little as one month. Diabetics have a complication of too much sugar, sorbitol, in the body, which eventually leads to eye and nerve damage.

Home Made Remedies

It should be noted that there are no case studies about these home remedies, only people testifying to their personal success.

1. Avocado

Take one avocado seed and grill the seed. Slice the seed into several chunks. Add this to a pot of water and bring to boil, wait till the water turns brown. Strain the water mixture and drink when cool. Expect to see results within two weeks.

2.Apples

Take one apple and cut into chunks. Place the apple in a pan with 4 cups of water and bring to boil and cook until the water is reduced in half. Drink this morning and night. It is expected to show relief within two months.

Diabetes does not have to be a life threatening disease. It is possible and probable with natural remedies to allow the patient to live a normal and healthy life.

Black Cumin Used in Treating Dementia in Patients

Anyone who has been affected by dementia or who has watched a loved one live with this condition can attest that this is perhaps one of most frightening diseases in the world. Dementia can be a symptom of a specific disease like Alzheimer`s disease, but many feel that dementia is not a symptom but "the disease" itself. While frightening, dementia is completely reversible.
Diet Affects Dementia

A lower risk of dementia has been associated with a diet that includes vegetables, fruits, fish and lots of omega-3-fatty acids. Doctor Catherine Kousimine (a close associate of Dr. Johanna Budwig) stated that detoxification is accomplished by eating a healthy diet. Her guidelines included: no animal products, sugar,alcohol and fat. She did stress the importance of organic fruits, nuts, seeds, wheats and vegetables.

Dr. Kousimine was most noted for her "Kousimine-Budwig Detox Breakfast" which greatly helps patients with all diseases.

The following recipe is adapted from Dr. Kousimine`s original recipe:

  • 1/4 cup of yogurt
  • 1.5 tablespoons of ground flax seeds
  • 1 banana
  • 1 additional fruit
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon of homemade granola

Grind the flax seeds right before preparing this recipe, as flax seeds should be used within ten minutes of grinding. Mix the yogurt and flax seeds together. Mash the banana in a bowl and then mix the banana into the yogurt mixture. Add in an additional fruit such as peaches, pears or strawberries. Add in the lemon juice and the granola and enjoy for breakfast or anytime of the day.

Note: The diet from Dr Catherine Kousmine has 5 principles. It starts with a healthy diet and a healthy colon. She recommended intestinal cleanses, enemas and colon cleansing. Bath Detoxing must be used in conjunction with the protocol.

Bath Detox Using Epsom Salts

  • 1 cup of Epsom salts
  • 1 cup of sea salts
  • 1 cup of baking soda

Mix all the ingredients together and place in a sealed jar. Fill the bathtub with water as hot as you can stand and add in 1/4 cup of the Epsom salts mixture. Relax in the bathtub for 30 minutes and then wrap yourself in a warm blanket for approximately 20 minutes more. This will draw out the toxins from your system and leave your body feeling refreshed.

Alternative Bath Detox Using the Friction Method :

Louis Kuhne of Leipzig created a friction water bath to heal many diseases. It involved taking two steam baths per week (15-30 minutes) and then 1-3 hip baths daily. The water temperature should be approximately 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Vigorous friction is created for 15-20 minutes using a linen cloth. Following the bath, the patient must be warmed with exercise. If the patient is too weak, sleeping after the bath is the next best option.

A February 2005 study on mice examined the impact of diet on Alzheimer`s disease. The FJ Express study`s researchers found that when they reduced the calories and limited carbohydrates, plaque did not form in the brains of the mice. The findings showed that a reduced calorie diet which had a limit on the amount of carbohydrates, resulted in a remarkable measure of disease prevention.

It`s also been found that dementia patients respond well to drinking green tea. Research involving 1000 Japanese adults revealed that adults who regularly drank green tea had a lower risk of developing dementia. In addition, adults already exhibiting dementia symptoms saw improvements after drinking two cups of rosemary tea per day. Results were seen in as little as one month.

Part II

Natural methods can be used to avoid or improve dementia symptoms. Part I examined how diet plays a key role in improving the symptoms of dementia, but diet is only the first step in avoiding or treating dementia.

Removal of Gas Appliances

There is some evidence to suggest that fossil fuel-powered appliances can worsen the symptoms of dementia.

According Dr. Theron Randolph, "If the patient's family is unwilling to exchange the entire fossil fuel heating system - I mean fuel pipes, heat ducts, everything, every single part must go - for an electric stove and baseboard heat, or a heat pump air exchanger, the patient will not recover."

Switching to electric heat, cooking with an electric stove and using an electric water heater can lead to improvement in dementia symptoms.

Supplements for Dementia

1. Lecithin - Lecithin feeds the brain and cleans the arteries and veins.
2. DMAE and Acetyl-L-carnitine - DMAE and Acetyl-L-carnitine will increase the level of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.
3. CQ10, bill berry, ginkgo biloba, grape seed - Coenzyme CQ10, bill berry, ginkgo biloba and grape seed will all improve circulation.

Note: Studies have shown that turmeric, milk thistle, olive leaf, holy basil and olive oil are beneficial for dementia patients also.

Additional Instructions

Throw out all aluminum cookware and even the tea ball. Give up using foils and even supplements covered with foil tops. Look for baking powders without aluminum, switch to plastic or glass salt shakers and buy salt without aluminum. Also, tape over all handles in the bathroom and other places with masking tape.

De-worming is one of the crucial items to be worked on and ridding the body of flukes is imperative. Here are some natural ones:

- Juicing an entire pumpkin is easy to do. Take a regular pumpkin and juice the entire pumpkin, skin, seeds and all. Drink the juice within 6 hours in 3 divided doses.

- Eat plenty of fresh unsalted pumpkin seeds. Start with a handful and workup.

- A way to get rid of dead flukes stuck in your system is to juice an entire pineapple (including the core) and drink the juice all at once.

- Place one teaspoon of Nigella sativa seeds in a pan with 1 tablespoon of vinegar. Heat to boiling and then cool to a warm temperature. With a pastry brush, paint on your stomach and liver area before sleeping. Do not wash off.

Steps for Immediate Relief of Brain Fog



1. Before sleeping take 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil mixed with the juice of one lemon.
2. Before breakfast take 1 teaspoon of nigella sativa oil mixed with 1 teaspoon of raw honey.
3. One half hour later take 1 tablespoon of Father Romano Zago's recipe: 1/2 liter of honey, 1 ounce of distillates (raw apple vinegar can be substituted) and 350 grams of whole aloe vera leaves juiced. Mix well.
4. For breakfast have the Kousimine-Budwig Power Breakfast (recipe part one).
5. Brain elixir to be used as mid afternoon snack. Place 1 cup of yogurt, 2 figs, 1 rosemary twig and 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a jar. Refrigerate overnight and the next afternoon, place in blender and mix well.
6. Follow the diet of Dr. Catherine Kousimine in Part I with no more than one cooked meal a day.
7. Also get plenty of sunshine; eat no packaged or processed foods and avoid all pharmaceutical medicines.

Four Stories of Survival From Cancer: One Uses Nigella Sativa Seeds

Four very different individuals used four very different plans that have one thing in common: they cure cancer. These amazing stories can offer hope to individuals who are battling cancer. These stories profile the methods used by individuals who developed unique and natural treatments for cancer.

Living Proof - A Man's Unusual Prescription for Bone Cancer:

In 1995, 54-year-old Michael Gearin-Tosh was diagnosed with myeloma, a form of cancer affecting the bone marrow. Myeloma is one of the most deadly forms of cancer. Faced with the prospect of chemotherapy, he decided to create his own natural protocol which included:

1. Gerson therapy entails juicing fresh fruits and vegetables; it is combined with three coffee enemas per day (www.gerson.org).

2. Regular acupuncture treatments.

3. He consumed enormous amounts of vitamin C, as prescribed by Dr. Linus Pauling.

4. He performed Chinese breathing exercises, a practice used for thousands of years. For one hour a day, he visualized inhaling oxygen through his toes.

According to Gearin-Tosh, "I imagined the heroic Imperial Russian armies that defeated Napoleon in 1812 marching through my body, looking for white cancerous cells to hunt out and destroy."

Doctors gave him little likelihood of surviving no more than one year without chemotherapy. More than 7 years after that prediction, he wrote his book - a success story that will touch anyone who has fought cancer, along with friends and family members of a cancer patient.

A Woman is Cured of 3rd Stage Cancer Using Nigella Sativa:

Nigella Sativa (or black seed, as it is more commonly called) is a well-documented cure for many forms of cancer, including pancreatic cancer. Black seed is used to treat everything from migraines to cancer.

A woman in Yemen, suffering from 3rd stage cancer, sought a natural treatment. She was advised to take black seeds with honey three times a day, in addition to garlic and honey, also taken three times per day.

Her husband faithfully crushed the seeds and mixed them with honey. He also crushed the fresh garlic and mixed it with honey. After three months, her cancer disappeared. The woman has continued to use honey and garlic, even after the disappearance of her disease.

Breast Cancer Cure Using a Natural Diet:

Marilyn Brent, breast cancer survivor, has shared her story of survival using a natural cancer plan developed by Solomon J. Wickey. Her plan was very simple, comprised of the following elements:

1. Drink fresh carrot and celery juice every day (1 pint each)

2. Maintain a healthy diet with no animal proteins, no sugars, salts, eggs, dairy, white flour or peanuts.

3. She also took some herbs for 9 weeks, which consisted of: 1 tsp red clover blend, 1 tsp whole apricot extract, 6 food enzymes, 6 parsley, 6 pau d'arco.

4. She avoided cooking in the microwave.

She also walked daily, drank only pure water and prayed a lot. Read her entire story here:

Amanda's Cure for Cervical Cancer:

Amanda says she cured her cervical cancer with a raw vegan diet, meditation and yoga. Her cancer diagnosis served as a wake-up call about her unhealthy diet.

According to Amanda, "A raw food vegan diet is based on unprocessed and uncooked plant foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables, sprouts, seeds, grains, beans, nuts, dried fruit, and seaweed."

Nigella Sativa (Black Cumin) May Help with Heel Spurs

What exactly is "plantar fasciitis?" When the plantar fascia becomes inflamed it is called plantar fasciitis. This happens when you use your foot too much, such as an athlete who runs constantly. There can be trauma caused to the heel and this trauma is called a heel spur. A heel spur is a bony growth, while plantar fascia is a tendon thickening that is inflamed and thus ruptures. This rupture causes so much pain that the person can be debilitated.

Have you recently gained weight? The force on your feet is about 120 percent of your weight. "Obesity puts a great amount of stress on all the supporting structures of the foot," said Dr. Bart Gastwirth, a podiatrist at the University of Chicago. "It can lead to plantar fasciitis and heel pain and can worsen hammertoes and bunions."

Heel pain for many begins in their early 60's, but may start as early as the 20's and 30's. Being obese, circulation problems and diabetes may add to this problem. Wearing proper footwear and getting the right kind of exercise is very important to help prevent this foot health problem. A normal person will walk an equivalent of three times around the earth. This is a lot of walking to put pressure on your 26 bones, 33 joints, 100 tendons, ligaments and muscles in your poor aching feet.

Wearing the Wrong Shoes:

According to many doctors, wearing the wrong type of shoes can cause heel spurs. The famous wedges, high heels or the new style shoes are not only uncomfortable, but they can cause many foot health problems down the road. Don`t give up these stylish shoes, but wear in moderation. Look for a comfortable shoe with wiggle room; a shoe that has the arch padded and thick soles.

Risk Factors That Might Cause Plantar Fasciitis:

- Foot arch problems(sometimes from wearing ill fitting shoes).
- Sudden weight gain or being obese.
- Running or being an athlete.
- A Tight Achilles tendon.

Self Help Methods:

1. Let your feet rest, as rest is essential. Reduce the amount of time you are on your feet.
2. Never go barefoot. Always protect your souls with cushions.
3. Stretch your feet before rising in the morning. The first steps are the worse.
4. Exercise your plantar fascia or heel spur in the day.
5. Massage with warm olive oil.
6. Soak your feet in a bath of marigold flowers.



Chop some fresh flowers and add it to some coconut oil. Heat slightly and then let cool. The ointments are good for pains. To make the ointment easy to spread, you can add some vegetable oil to the ointment. Some will recommend lard instead of coconut oil.

Note: Adding some Nigella Sativa oil to the above remedy may help with the pain, as Nigella Sativa is also an anti-inflammatory herb useful for pain and swelling.

Will Exercising Relieve the Pain:

- Use stretching exercises to stretch the plantar fascia and Achilles tendon.
- Use strengthening exercises to strengthen the muscles in the ankle and foot.

Natural Pain Relief Formula:

- 1 Tablespoon of Cayenne Pepper
- 3 Tablespoons of Ginger
- 3 Tablespoons of Turmeric

Mix all very well and store in an airtight container. When pain relief is needed, take 1/2 teaspoon of the pain formula and mix in a glass of water and drink.

Morning Exercises:

1. When you wake in the morning, exercise your plantar fascia by flexing your foot up and down for 10-12 times.

2. Take a towel and stretch the bottom of the feet.

Exercises to avoid

Avoid all forms of running and jogging or any motion with repeated pounding of your feet against a hard surface.

If you are an athlete, use warm up exercises before you begin your day. After a day of sports, relax with some foot massages and some ice packs to relieve the swelling.

Remedies that work:

Grape Seed for Circulation:

One of the best remedies is the use of grape seeds or grape seed extracts. Grape seeds are a natural anti-inflammatory herb and are great for a number of things. Take 2-3 capsules per day of the whole grape seeds ground in capsules or 500 mg of grape seed extract per day.



Nigella Sativa or Black Cumin:

This cure for all diseases includes bone spurs. Take 50 grams of ground black seeds and 250 ml of water and bring to a boil. Boil this mixture for 30 minutes. Strain and drink this mixture twice a day for one week. Results should be seen after one week.

EFT for Heel Spurs:

Marian Slaman talks about having results with EFT (Emotion Freedom Techniques) in curing a plantar fasciitis problem. With her tapping, she was successful. This is the beginning of what she tapped on the patient`s hand:

- "Even though I have this pain in my feet."

- "Even though it hurts to walk."

- "Even though it feels like the bones are coming apart."

- "Even though my bones need to readjust to the route."

- "Even though it feels like I am coming apart."


Apple Cider Vinegar:

Using a brown paper bag soaked in apple cider vinegar will cure heel spurs. Cut the paper bag out in the shape of your feet and soak it in apple cider vinegar. Change the paper a few times in the day. Use this protocol for 2-3 weeks. Others have stated that they had better results drinking the vinegar. To drink the vinegar, mix 1 teaspoon of vinegar with 1 teaspoon of honey and one glass of water.

Cat's Claw Used in Conjuction with Black Cumin (Nigella Sativa) Treats Cancer and Other Illnesses

There is much talk about cat's claw and its healing properties used for the treatment of cancer, but cat's claw can be used in the treatment of many illnesses. It is not just for cancer, but it is also used in the treatment of asthma, arthritis, gastritis, hemorrhoids, inflammations of the urinary track, kidney detox, healing deep wounds and bone pain. It is also used since the 1990's for the treatment of cancer, ulcers, chronic inflammations, and viral diseases (such as herpes).

Cat's Claw is a plant of the Amazon rain forest. There are two main species and they are Uncaria tomentosa and Uncaria guianensis. In the US, you see mainly Uncaria tomentosa and in Europe you will see the Uncaria guianensis. The medicine is derived from the bark and the root of the plant. Several of the Mexican species have toxic properties. Cat's foot is not the same thing as cat's claw.

When using cat's claw for cancer, it is suggested you use it in conjunction with Nigella sativa and not alone.  

Cat's Claw and Alzheimer's Disease:

There are new studies being done on rats for the use of cat's claw on Alzheimer's Disease. The plant improves the immune system and prevents the deposit of beta-amyloid plagues on the brain. The tests showed that the mixture of cat's claw, rosemary and gotu kola worked better than cat's claw alone. The researchers are hoping to begin trials on humans in the near future, but the results on rats show promise for the prevention of Alzheimer's Disease.

Dosage for Cat's Claw:

Asthma - You must make a cat's claw tonic. Take 1/2 liter of water and 100 grams of cat's claw roots and bring to boil. Drink this water for one month.

Brain tumors - Place 250 ml of water and 1 tsp of cat's claw powder in a pan and bring to boil. Continue to boil for thirty minutes. Strain this mixture and drink the liquid. You must do this for six months before seeing a considerable improvement. This recipe can also be used for other forms of cancer also, except Leukemia which has reports of complications using Cat's Claw.

Note: It should be noted that it is suggested to use this in conjunction with other remedies, such as Nigella Sativa.

Intestinal disorders such as dysentery, ulcers and diverticulosis - Place one cup of water and 1 tablespoon of cat's claw powder and boil for 10-15 minutes. Strain the tea and drink three times a day.

Mumps - You must take 60mg of the extract, divided in three equal doses for ten days.

Osteoarthritis of the knee - You must take 100mg of cat's claw extract daily.

Rheumatoid arthritis - You must take 60mg per day. Divide the dose into three equal doses. If using the dried herbs, then take 100mg in vegetarian capsules. Expect results after 5 months.

Note: Please make sure the extract you are using contains no extra additives such as tetra cyclic oxindole alkaloids. These chemicals work against the natural compounds of cat's claw in the preventing of pain for rheumatoid arthritis.

Recipes Using Cat's Claw:

Tincture: Place 8 ounces of ground cat's claw along with 5 cups of vodka in a sealed jar and place the jar in a warm place. After three weeks, strain the liquor through some cheesecloth. This recipe may be reduced in half. This tincture is good for allergies and arthritis. Use 5 drops of the tincture, three times a day and increase slowly as needed. Never use more than 15 drops at a time.

Ointment: Take one cup of water and 2 teaspoon of the cat's claw powder. Bring it to boil and keep boiling until it turns brown. Strain the liquid and add an equal amount of coconut oil or virgin olive oil (not extra virgin). Place it back on the stove and heat again over medium heat. Boil it until it quits bubbling rapidly and bubbles no longer appear on the oil. Use this as an ointment for Herpes and any type of viral infections. Also good for pain of arthritis or cancer.

Cream: Use the same recipe above except add in some beeswax. For every cup of oil add in 1/2 ounce of beeswax. Heat over the flame and stir until thick and creamy. You could use cocoa butter instead of beeswax. The cream may be used as the ointment, directly on the skin.

Warnings About Using Cat's Claw:

Taking cat's claw for a short time has shown very little side effects. There could be headaches, dizziness and vomiting in some cases.

People who are pregnant, breast-feeding and have auto-immune diseases (MS, Lupus, HIV, Tuberculosis) should not take cat's claw.

Special Note: Cat's claw might make patients with Leukemia worst. If you have Leukemia, seek an alternative therapy such as Nigella Sativa.

Olive leaf is the ideal plant for Miswak: (tooth brushing stick)

A miswak or siwak is not something that most people are use to. Miswak is a twig of the olive tree that is used to clean your teeth with. Miswak is used in much the same manner as a tooth brush. Studies have shown this to be the superior way in brushing, in the prevention of gum diseases. This is being considered as an alternative medicine for the healing of gums. Miswak also, strengthens the teeth enamel.

When you first get your miswak, you should cut back one inch from the top and take the outer bark off. After the bark is peeled back, you can take the tooth brushing stick and start going over the teeth. Start at the top of the gum and come down, as you would in brushing. Coat or brush all of the teeth, front and back and then do the tongue. This should be done a few times a day.



Benefits of using the Miswak:

  • Kills bacteria causing gum disease
  • Gets rid of plaque
  •  Helps against cavities
  • Helps to remove bad breath
  • The bristle action is a great way to clean your teeth

Black Cumin May be Used in Canine Cushings

Cushing's Disease is a common condition in older dogs. Too often, the symptoms are attributed to the normal aging process. Left untreated, canine Cushing's can lead to serious conditions such as diabetes, pancreatitis, heart disease, seizures, kidney failure, and nervous disorders. However, with the proper natural treatment, pets with Cushing's can go on to live a longer and more comfortable life.
The most common cause of Cushing's is a benign tumor in the pituitary gland. The tumor causes the pituitary gland to over secrete ACTH, (adrenocorticotrophic hormone) which, in turn, causes the adrenals to release excessive cortisol. Because of this faulty mechanism, the pituitary gland does not respond in stopping the release of ACTH.

In a smaller percentage of Cushing's cases, an adrenal tumor is responsible for the secretion of too much cortisol. 50% of these tumors are benign and 50% are malignant with the probability of metastasizing to the lungs and liver.

The third cause of Cushing's in dogs is by overmedication with cortisone, primarily to relieve allergies.

Cushing's can be characterized by the following symptoms:

1.Increased thirst.
2.Frequent urination.
3.Increased appetite.
4.Weight gain.

Other tell-tale signs of Cushing's can be seen by the dog's appearance.

1.Enlarged abdomen.
2.Muscle weakness.
3.Thinning hair.
4.A "bony" appearance in his head.
5.Hyperpigmentation of the skin.

Behaviorally, the dog may:

1.Pant excessively.
2.Exhibit lethargy.
3.Lose interest in daily activities.

Cushing's disease is usually difficult to diagnose. No single test will point to a specific diagnosis. Three specific tests are given for a proper diagnosis: a urine cortisol/creatinine ratio test, an ACTH stimulation test, and low and high dose dexamethasone suppression tests.

Rather than depend on drugs that destroy the outer layer of the adrenal glands, there are natural and homeopathic remedies that will normalize a dog's output of cortisol. Here are some of the best ones:

* Dandelion - Helps normalize adrenal function. It is also an excellent tonic for the liver and kidneys. Dandelion reduces inflammation in the body and also contains vitamins and minerals necessary for hair growth.

* Burdock - Is a cleansing herb that detoxifies the tissues and eliminates unwanted substances from the body. It is effective in balancing blood sugar levels and preventing diabetes.

* Arsenicum - Treats excessive thirst and urination.

* Hepar Sulph - Heals wounds and irritated skin. It is also effective for treating infections.

* Astragalus - Besides strengthening the immune system, it also aids in promoting adrenal balance. It additionally regulates blood pressure and blood sugar levels.

* Mercurius - Addresses thirst and irritability. It is also used for treating bladder infections and diarrhea.

* Sulphur - Reduces thirst, improves skin condition and aids digestion.

In the small percentage where the adrenal tumor is malignant, additional natural measures should be implemented such as Oleander extract (note raw oleander in its natural state is extremely toxic; it is the properly made extract that contains healing properties), Inositol/IP6, Curcumin, Black Seed Oil (Nigella Sativa), Fish Oil, Flaxseed Oil, and other cancer and immune strengthening supplements.

A raw diet is of primary importance. It gives the pet the nutrients that nature intended. Grains, additives and fillers found in commercial foods are detrimental to a pet's health. Even the most high quality foods lose important nutrients in cooking. Improvement may be seen by simply modifying a pet's diet to the one nature intended.

The symptoms of Cushing's lead many pet owners to consider euthanasia in order to end their pet's suffering. Yet, properly treated, a pet can go on to live a good quality life.

Stinging Nettles: So Many Cures that You Will Lose Count


If the world knew all the true healing benefits of stinging nettles, they would be rushing to store it by the tons in their basements and they would be growing it instead of grass in their back yards. Stinging nettles is a greatly misunderstood herb that has been put aside for way too long. The entire plant is of value including the leaves, roots, stems and flowers. Stinging nettles would have been eliminated years ago from the many insects and animals eating this marvelous plant, had it not been for the stings.

In ancient Greek times, the stinging nettle was used mainly as a diuretic and laxative. Now the plant is used for many cures; illnesses include cancer and diabetes.

By simply drinking one cup of stinging nettles tea a day, a mother of seven was relieved of her headaches and eczema. The stinging nettles are a blood purifier and thus clean eczema internally. It is the best blood purifier available and has an influence over the pancreas. Stinging nettles also assist in lowering blood sugar.

Stinging Nettles has anti-inflammatory properties and treats illness of the urinary track. The best way to take nettles is early in the morning before breakfast. Make a habit of purifying your blood at lease twice a year by drinking this tea every day for one month. You will feel revived with tons of energy and able to work like never before.

Benefits of the stinging nettle plant

The benefits of stinging nettle are so many that you too will lose count. It is a diuretic; it is used to treat anemia, and it is used for arthritis and rheumatism. Stinging nettles is used for respiratory and urinary problems. It aids in the recovery of eczema, asthma, sinusitis and rhinitis. It protects against skin disorders and aides in the treatment of benign prostate. It diminishes susceptibility to colds. It is also a good deterrent for pests in the gardens.

Stinging nettles protects against hair loss, kidney stones, allergies, hay fever, osteoarthritis, internal bleeding, uterine bleeding, nosebleeds and bowel bleeding. Stinging nettles protects against enlarged spleen, diabetes, endocrine disorders, stomach acid, diarrhea, dysentery, lung congestion, cancer and anti-aging, and it is used as a general tonic. It is a blood purifier and it is useful with wound healing. Stinging nettles is used for muscle aches and pains also.

Benefits of the stinging nettle root

1. Urination problems related to prostate problems include nighttime urination, going to the bathroom too often, pain when urinating, not being able to urinate and bladder infection.
2. Joint problems
3. Diuretic and astringent


David Wolfe`s advice on making tea with stinging nettle

During an interview with Kevin Gianni and David Wolfe, the values of stinging nettles were discussed. David said, "Stinging nettles have been eaten by the druids in the U.K. for thousands of years and it`s one of the most important foods to eat, if you know how to do it or if you juice it or you can just dry it and make a tea out of it, which is what I`m recommending; horse tail, nettle, oat straw. The oat seed of the oat grass has a little straw around it. It has a little coating. It`s the seed capsule. That oat straw is one of the richest sources of silicon. You can buy it in health food stores. You can get it as extracts in health food stores."

David suggests a cocktail of herbs to make a tea with. They are horse tail, oat straw, alfalfa and of course stringing nettle. From the days you start drinking this tea, your bones will increase in density. He states that it is the silicon in stinging nettles that increase the bone density. Sounds like a good idea for sure. French researcher Louis Curvan, who was nominated for the Nobel Prize, wrote 5 books on the subject of calcium and silicon and how they are related to each other. Because Louis Curvan spoke French, the books and the research never reached the nations who spoke English.

How do you make nettle tea

Take one half liter of water and bring to boil. Remove from the stove and add in 1 tablespoon of each herb. Cover the tea pot and let it steep for 30 minutes. Note: It is not necessary to add all four herbs to the tea if they are unavailable to you. You can get many health benefits from the nettle tea alone. It is necessary to drink the tea without any sweetener.

Hives and allergy remedy

What exactly is nettle rash? It is a patch of red and itchy weals or swellings in the skin. It is similar to the same type of weals which may result from contact with the stinging nettle. Stinging nettles grows wild in fields and may cause allergic reactions when a person comes in contact with the bush.

Nettle`s Rash may be caused by

1. Food, eggs, wheat, strawberries and seafood, just to name a few of the culprits.

2. Pollen and fungal spores.

3. Medicines, antibiotics and NSAID`s.

4. Bites by insects.

5. Virus, bacteria or infections.

6. Contact with the stinging nettle plant.

But amazingly the same plant which causes hives can also cure hives. Dr. Andrew Weil, Natural Doctor and Herbalist, suggests, "Using freeze-dried nettle leaf extract to treat hives and allergies. This might sound illogical, but the plant apparently doesn`t contain enough histamine to be a problem when it`s taken orally, and it does contain substances that help heal hives."

Amazing, there is a difference in touching the plant and ingesting it. There is news also that the root is more potent than the leaves. If you can get some fresh nettles, handling it carefully, dry the roots and then make the dried roots into a tea.

Recipes:

  1. Infusion: Place 1/2 liter of boiling water on the stove and add in 1 tablespoon of dried stinging nettles. Cover the pot and let set for 30 minutes. This is a glorified tea recipe.
  2. Baths: This is good for sciatica. Place a large amount of the herbs including the roots in cold water over night. The next morning boil the concoction and place in the bathtub. Soak in the herbs for as long as you feel comfortable. This may also be used as a foot soak.
  3. Shampoo wash: Place one half cup of the dried herbs in a huge 5 liter pot. Bring the herbs to boil slowly. Remove from the stove and keep covered for an additional 10 minutes. Add in some shaved olive oil soap and bring to boil. Cool to a warm mixture and wash your hair with this.
  4. Stinging nettles is an important part of anyone's kitchen to be included with Nigella Sativa, fresh cold pressed olive oil, olive leaf and grape seeds. If a person has these things in their homes, then no disease can harm them.

Treating Cancer with Black Cumin: Nature Vs Modern Medicine

http://black-cumin.weebly.com/store/c3/Black_Cumin_Seeds.html
Buy Nigella Sativa - Black Cumin
(NaturalNews) In contrast to at least 6000 years of the practice of natural medicine, Western medicine treats the body as a collection of parts instead of as a synergistic organism. When it comes to treating broken bones and injured body parts, mainstream Western medicine is unequaled. When this same approach is used to treat illness and disease - fixing or repairing the parts where the symptoms of underlying illnesses manifest themselves, modern medicine fails miserably.

In the instance of cancer, instead of addressing the causes of cancer - such as toxins and a weakened immune system - we see instead treatments that either slash, burn or poison away the tumors and cancer cells, which further weakens an immune system cancer has already defeated and only worsens the conditions that led to cancer to begin with.

Even if initially successful at getting rid of existing cancer cells and tumors, the end result is a weakened body which may have major organ damage and which is more susceptible to the reappearance of the original cancer, as well as other forms of cancer and diseases.

For half a century or more, we have been told that a breakthrough or cure for cancer is just around the corner, yet the death rates for cancer remain virtually unchanged. Meanwhile, effective natural and alternative treatments which address and correct the actual causes of cancer continue to enjoy much greater success than the largely failed mainstream treatments - even as these natural alternatives suppressed and come under increasing attack by the medical establishment.

Profit plays a huge role in Western medicine and, because nature cannot be patented, there is no profit in conducting studies on natural remedies for cancer and illness. In fact, if studies were to prove the effectiveness of natural alternatives and those alternatives were to be approved for use in treating cancer and other illnesses, the result would be to admit cheaper, safer and more effective competition into a fiercely guarded market. Instead, such alternatives are heavily suppressed, discredited and passed off as "snake oil" and "voodoo medicine".

The cold, hard fact is that cancer and other degenerative and chronic illnesses are big business - to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars a year. When their only market place is our bodies, the vested interests of the trillion dollar world pharmaceutical empire, mainstream medicine and the institutions which depend on maintaining the status quo are not likely to allow such natural competition, even though the cost is millions of needless deaths and untold suffering.

A better plan for maintaining and increasing profit is to continue to bring new drugs into the market place which treat only symptoms and have serious side effects that lead to still more drugs in a never ending cycle so that by the time a male American reaches 65 years of age, he takes an average of 15 prescribed and over the counter medications every day - when it all started out with one or two conditions that could have been treated safely and effectively by natural means. A good model for profit, but a horrible one for humanity.

We now have over 15,000 patented and approved drugs, 95% of which have significant side effects. It is no accident that our doctors have been taught for generations, just as we have been, that the way to treat illness and disease is to prescribe approved medications â€" medications that are made by the single largest source by far of funding for medical education: the world pharmaceutical companies. What exactly has this mountain of medicine actually cured in the past half century? Certainly not cancer!

By far the most effective way to beat and avoid cancer is to remove the causes of cancer and to make your body as inhospitable to cancer and illness as possible. To understand what steps we should and can take, we should understand what we know about cancer.

Black Cumin Capsules
We know that:

* Cancer is by and large a modern disease - although it has been around for thousands of years, it`s growth has taken off at precisely the same time that man has industrialized and introduced heavy metals and tens of thousands of unnatural chemicals into the air we breath, water we drink and soil we use for growing our crops. For several decades, we have also lost vital nutrition from over-farming, processing nutrients out of the food on our grocers shelves and the increased consumption of fast foods, microwave meals and junk foods. At the same time, much of the population has adopted a sedentary lifestyle that prevents a strong immune system and optimum health.

* The development of cancer indicates that our natural first line of defense, our immune system, has been defeated and that the presence of either toxins and pathogens, or some imbalance in our bodies have led to the development of cancer and enabled it to gain an upper hand.

* Cancer cannot develop without an impaired liver, as alternative cancer pioneer Max Gerson discovered.

* It is very difficult for cancer to survive in an alkaline environment.

* It is likewise very difficult for cancer to survive in a highly oxygenated environment.

* Detoxing and cleansing our colons and liver helps restore balance, prepares our bodies to better be able utilize natural immune boosters and cancer fighters and paves the way to rebuilding our livers and immune systems.

* Cancer cells are diseased, impaired and/or beset by pathogens and have lost the ability to to be die naturally via normal programmed cell death and be replaced by healthy cells. These cancerous cells simply become abnormal and outlive the other cells in their normal cell life/replacement cycle and end up crowding out a territory over time.

* Iodine, vitamin D, magnesium, calcium, selenium, and potassium are all vital to beat and ward off cancer.

* Fresh air, pure water and sunshine are also vital to maintain healthy bodies which can fight off and beat conditions like cancer.

* A natural diet of mostly uncontaminated mostly raw vegetables and some raw fruits, with plenty of omega-3`s and balanced nutrition has been proven to be effective in numerous natural anti-cancer protocols.

* The combination of flaxseed oil and cottage cheese in the famous Budwig diet for cancer has proven to be highly effective.

* Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, kale and Brussels spouts are among many foods that are potent cancer fighters and preventers.

* A great number of natural botanicals and supplements, such as the oleander remedy I have written about, those containing beta glucans and other long-chain polysacharrides, iodine, colloidal silver, Inositol/IP6, curcumin, black seed oil (Nigella sativa), quercitin, the ABM and other medicinal mushrooms, South Africa`s "Cancer Bush" (Sutherlandia frutescans), cat`s claw, laetrile, artemisinin, resveratrol, green tea, pau d`arco, and many others have been proven to boost the immune system, destroy pathogens, protect our cells, and beat cancer.

* Stress and emotional conflicts can contribute to the onset of cancer and prevent the body from being able to properly heal itself in a fight against cancer.

* Sugar feeds cancer.

And so, when we go to an oncologist and are diagnosed with cancer what is the prescribed treatment? Does it incorporate ANY of the above elements? No, sadly it does not. Our doctor prescribes what he or she has been taught: cut out, burn out with radiation or poison out with chemotherapy drugs the symptoms of cancer (the tumors and cancer cell masses) and do nothing to address the underlying causes and natural imbalances that led to the symptom.

As a result, the way is paved for the return of the cancer, and, even worse, the road to other forms of cancer and other serious illnesses is often made easier due to the damage to the immune system and major organs caused by the treatment of the symptoms.

Nature, on the other hand, enables us to address virtually every area of knowledge and concern. In a future installment, we will take a look at a suggested protocol based on what nature has to offer. Until then,

Live long, live healthy, live happy!

Nigella Sativa Power Honey Mixture

This is a very powerful sweet treat that will refresh your very soul and give you the energy you need to work hard and live longer. This recipe was given to me by a Sheik in Dubai, UAE who runs a herbal store. I have some every day.

  • 3 cups of honey
  • 2 Tablespoons of Royal Honey
  • 2 Heaping Tablespoons of Ground Black Seeds (black cumin) or the oil  (super fine is best)
  • 2 Heaping Tablespoons of ginger powder
  • 1/3 cup of chopped nuts (any will do but I used pistashios, walnuts and almonds)

Directions:

In a medium size bowl add in the honey, black seeds and ginger. You can substitute the black cumin oil instead. If using the seeds, make sure they are heated to remove the hot taste prior to using. Mix the honey mixture well. Add in the chopped nuts and place the entire mixture in sealed jars. Take one teaspoon twice a day. Yummmmy.
