Water is life

Water

Water is Life

What is there to say about water? We all are pretty much familiar with it, what it does and why it is necessary. But just in case you need a reminder, 70% of the earth is covered with water and the human body is composed of 60% water. Our bodies go through about ½ gallon of water a day through natural processes. If you don’t replace this water you face the consequences of a breakdown of many of your bodily functions fairly quickly. Basically, water is life and without it there is no life.

What kind of water?                  ú

That may seem like a strange question, but just walk through the department that displayed water in your local grocery store and you will see many varieties. Actually, maybe to be more specific there is water for sale with many different additives or descriptions of how it was obtained. There is All Natural water, Purified water, Alkaline water, Mineral water, Water with Electrolytes added, Flavored water, Distilled water, etc.

You get the picture that we have made even deciding on what type of water to drink a complicated procedure.

You may have seen the reports that tell us that much of the “fancy” water is really just tap water that receives a special name and is sold only to make more money for the supplier. I can’t tell you what ones do that, I don’t know. There are plenty of reports on the Internet that will tell you about a particular water brand. What I can tell you is what I use and have been using for a long time and that is distilled water. Recently I found “Distilled water with added Electrolytes” in our local grocery and thought this sounds like something I could safely try. I bought two cases and started drinking it while I was away from the house. After a few days I began to have stomach problems and found my skin drying out. I stopped drinking the water and things went back to normal.

Distilled Water          

How a Water Distiller works

We use distilled water in our home. In fact many years ago we purchased a water distiller and process our own in our home. I have heard, and maybe you have also, that distilled water is bad for you, that it takes the precious minerals out of the water. Understand that distilled water is not bad for you. In fact, I am convinced that this idea is being spread by the folks that install water softening systems or sell the bottled water. Basically a water distiller is an enclosed system where water is boiled and turned to vapor, the pure water vapor is captured in a holding tank for you to use.

Master Herbalist Mishelle Knuteson has this to say: “Distilled water is pure H2O. Distilled water is hungry water, which means that it will flush out inorganic minerals that the body has taken in and is unable to assimilate. This is a good thing. We do not want anything in the body that the body cannot use. If inorganic minerals are left hanging around in the body, they will cause constipation of the area which leads to disease.

Distilled water can be revitalized in a way that is completely natural, that will not change the chemical makeup of the H2O and does not add any inorganic compounds to the water.”

Again, why would this be a bad thing? Think about how pure rain water comes about. Water is vaporized by the sun and condenses in the atmosphere and drops in the form of rain.  There is nothing unusual about this, it is literally the  most natural think in the world.

Water Distillers    

Durastill water distiller

Water distillers are expensive, but then you have to consider the investment you are making. Our water distiller is over 30 years old and has never needed repairs. It has a 12 gallon holding tank and we have literally used thousands of gallons of water from it.

Water distillers will remove inorganic minerals and most of the chemicals that find their way into our water system. We live in a community which supplies water to our house. We fill our distiller tank from the tap and drink the processed distilled water from the holding tank, we also use it in making our tea and coffee, etc.

You will need to clean the distilling tank on a regular basis. Recently I cleaned my tank and took the water drained from tank outside and poured it on some cracks in my sidewalk which had grass growing in them. In just a few days all of the grass had died… I wonder just what had distilled out of the water that the rest of the community is drinking? That is what it is all about, taking the bad stuff out and leaving true pure water.

Stabilized Rice Bran

 

Rice Plant

Stabilized Rice Bran

Now this product is widely available through the Internet or Health Food Stores, it wasn’t when I began. It is nutrient rich and contains over 100 anti-oxidants. You need to build your immune system and this is an excellent way to do this.

History of the product

The benefits of this product were initially discovered in India. Rice Bran, (the outer hull), is milled off of the rice to present an attractive product. Researchers discovered that mothers in India would go to the mill and gather the discarded Rice Bran and make a broth from it and give it to their sick children. The children, more often than not would recover. When they began to research the reason, they found that Rice Bran was filled with good things. As is often done, we discard the most beneficial part of the plant because we don’t like the look, the texture or the taste.

Rice Bran

The problem with rice bran is that it has a very short shelf life and if it is not used quickly all benefits are lost. The problem of how to stabilize it was tackled by the researchers and they eventually found a way to make the product stable and storable, thus the name, “Stabilized Rice Bran”. If you want to boost your immune system this is one product you will want to consider.

Boost Immunity

What does this miracle plant discard do? It does a lot! Such as:

“Abnormal cells, bacteria, and viruses proliferate in our bodies all the time, but normally the immune system annihilates them before they have a chance to develop into illness, disease or cancer.

The immune system is a complex network coordinating the activities that protect us from harmful microbial invaders (bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites) and stop abnormal cell proliferation. This system protects us from all types of illness and disease. But it can be weakened by nutritional deficiencies, prolonged illness and inflammation, and by the carcinogens, dangerous metals, poisons, toxins and stress we are exposed to every day.

When a person has a weakened immune system, even a simple cold or flu can escalate and become a life-threatening illness. Having a strong immune system is the best defense against illness and disease. Nutritionally strengthening and supporting the immune system is essential, especially after the age of 50 because the body’s natural defenses decline with age.

Sterols and Sterolins (found in plants) are great immune supporters. They help the immune system stop cancer, kill bacteria, destroy viruses and slow down the aging process. They have also been shown to keep patients infected with the HIV virus from developing AIDS. Stabilized rice bran has high concentrations of Sterolins and Phytosterols that have demonstrated potent antiviral and antibacterial effects.” (shared by a friend, I don’t know the original author).

Lower Cancer Risk

When I was diagnosed with cancer this was one of the main parts of my recovery plan.  Cancer is now the leading cause of death globally. It is estimated that cancer will kill 84 million people in the next ten years. While cancer is linked to many things in our world we have found that there are many natural products that will cure or slow down this disease also.

One of the most important things you can do is to stop filling your body with the cancer causing foods, junk foods, artificial sweeteners and sugars. If you won’t feed it, it will go away.

A New Book

Somewhat different from my normal style of writing I have written a new book. It is quite a bit different from the things I have written in the past, but hopefully it will be a blessing to the lives of many.

From Injury to relief

If you have followed my blog you will have seen that I have become disabled this past year. 13 months ago I injured my back and have been unable to work since that time. I have found some relief from the pain through a device called a “Spinal Cord Stimulator”.

I wrote a completely new book detailing the entire journey from the injury to the recovery and a mostly pain free life now.

Learn what it is all about

Like many of you, I had never heard of this device before the doctor mentioned it and then found it very difficult to find the answers to the hundreds of questions I had about it. I wasn’t really keen about having an electronic device implanted in my back and spine. Because of this I did tons of research to learn as much as I possibly could about the device, the procedure to implant it and life afterwards. My new book details all of that.

Answering your questions

Knowing the answers to your questions or at least where to find the answers makes like better. In my book I detail my research into the Spinal Cord Stimulator implantation and all it entails. It is a one stop shop kind of book in which I do my best to answer your questions and tell you where you can find more information about the device and the procedure to implant it into your body.

My prayer is that this new book can be of help to many in our world who face the same situation as I. Buy the book and just maybe it will help answer your questions as the information did for me.

 

When you have flu what can you do naturally?

When you have flu what can you do naturally?

 

The lowly Red Raspberry Leaf a key to good health

One of the important questions for us to day is: When you have flu or a cold what can you do naturally? One answer is Red Raspberry! Red Raspberry leaf is a minor miracle among herbs and one of my most favorite to use. It will boost your immune system and protect you from many things, and especially things like the flu and colds in most cases. It is especially high in Iron and Vitamin C.

Many folks love Red Raspberries! They enjoy this slightly tart red fruit. They make pies and jams, tarts and smoothies, but no one really thinks about the leaves of the plant. Yet the Red Raspberry Leaf really doesn’t have as much of a “fruity” taste as you might expect. The taste is more green and earthy, yet it is a very mild taste. I normally mix it in with another tea, such as a Green tea or a fruit tea such as Acai or Blueberry, but most often I use Elderberry.  All of these teas help boost and protect the immune system and fight the flu and colds. If you are already sick with the flu, (diarrhea, etc.), the Red Raspberry Leaf will help a restore the minerals you need to stabilize your system and calm your stomach.

Raspberry provides natural amounts of the following:

*(See note)

Alpha-Carotene Manganese

Alpha-Tocopherol Niacin

Ascorbic Acid Pectin

Boron Phosphorus

Calcium Potassium

Chromium Riboflavin

Fiber Selenium

Iron Silicon

Magnesium Thiamin

Malic Acid Zinc

(*From book: School of Natural Healing (Dr. John R. Christopher, Christopher Publications, P.O. Box 412, Springville, Utah 84663)

 

It is a proven fact in my life

I add Red Raspberry leave to my herbal tea just about every day. I don’t remember the last time I had a cold or the flu. I also do not take “the flu shot,” which is so readily available in our society.

Traditional Medicinals Organic Raspberry Leaf Tea, 16 Tea Bags (Pack of 6)

A History from Dr. Christopher:

“Dr. Christopher recounts in his book the story of a woman who had several children and two of them came home from school with the flu. They called Dr. Christopher who gave them this instruction:

He said: “The last time I was over at your house, I noticed you had a large patch of red raspberries.” “Yes the woman said, but what does that have to do with the stomach flu?”

Dr. Christopher instructed her to “Go out and gather several bushels of leaves from the red raspberry bushes. Make it into a tea, just take a big handful of the leaves and pour a pint of boiling water over them and let it steep for 20 minutes.” The lady gave it a try and afterwards she said She had two children who had had come home sick that day and might have been out of school for days or weeks like some of her other sick children. After starting the tea all of the children were able to go back to school the next day. Also, she and her husband didn’t catch the flu either. Red Raspberry Leaf is a powerful medicine.”

 

Other Additions to boost the immune system against the flu and colds

Echinaccea 2-4 capsules every two hours if you are feeling flu symptoms. (If a tincture 1 dropper full every 2-4 hours Echinaccea is antimicrobial and will help build the immune system.

Cayenne – (this powerful herb can be purchased in capsule form). At the first signs of a cold take 2 capsules with plenty of water. If possible get into steam, such as a hot shower. The Cayenne will probably cause you to sweat and it opens your blood vessels and increases your circulation.

Garlic – This is great to use for its antibiotic properties. Take as much as you feel comfortable with. I like to take organic chicken broth, (home made if possible), and add several cloves of garlic as well as onion. NOTE: As an alternative you can chop fresh garlic and mix it with Vaseline. Apply this mixture to the bottoms of the feet and wrap in plastic wrap and then place socks over this. It will enter your system and you will taste garlic, (as well as having garlic breath). This works best of done over night, but can be done anytime when you don’t have to be on your feet.

Supper Garlic Immune formula by doctor Christopher. If you can’t put the garlic poultice on your feet, you may try this product. This is a distilled garlic juice with high potency. Take 1-2 Tablespoons every few hours.

The Flu and Natural Cures

The Flu

flu and colds

Whenever we mention the word “Flu” in describing how we feel, people immediately back away, (as well they should). The Flu is very contagious and as you know it is sometimes deadly. If you are aware of what is going on the world, you most likely know that the “Flu shot” or “Flu Vaccine” is mostly ineffective. Very few people get any protection from the flu vaccine, as one study reported only about 10% of those in their study group who were vaccinated did not get the flu.

What are the alternatives?

 Actually there are quite a few alternatives to taking the flu shot. I want to try and highlight a few of them in this post.

Chicken soup (made the right way)

You may have heard about the healing power of Grandma’s chicken soup. Well, I can’t really comment on how grandma made it, but there is a better way. It starts with your basic chicken soup. Hopefully you will be making it from scratch and not just dumping it out of a can, but if you have to, let’s try and make it healthier for you.

Here is what you do, first chop up a whole medium Onion and add it to the broth. Then chop up a whole Garlic clove and add it to the broth. You see; both Garlic and Onion contain strong antibacterial and antiviral compounds. Eat as much as you can and it will help shorten the effects of the flu.

Garlic tea

 

For fighting colds, coughs and especially the flu you might try this. It doesn’t necessarily taste the best, but if you can get it down it is a great way to take advantage of garlic’s healing properties. Try sweetening it was Raw unfiltered honey, Agave or Stevia.

Elderberries

One of my favorites is using Elderberries to prevent the flu. I personally use Elderberry Tincture in my tea almost every day. The fact is that Herbalists have used these small dark berries for hundreds of years as a general tonic and because of their general health benefits. Elderberries are extremely high in vitamin C so offer a lot of protection that way. But they are also high in antioxidants and lower the rate of heart disease and stroke. Some herbalist prescribe Elderberries to help prevent eye disease

Another great benefit is that Elderberries have been found to help prevent inflammation in arthritis and is beneficial for Alzheimer’s and dementia. It is also said that because of its high levels of antioxidants it helps reduce the effects of aging.

Henry Box an Herbalist from England, wrote: “For colds, influenza, fevers, inflammation of the brain, pneumonia, inflammation of stomach, bowels, or any other part, this is a certain cure. I have never known it to fail, even when given up and at the point of death it will not only save at the eleventh hour, but at the last minute of that hour. It is so harmless that you cannot use it amiss, and so effectual that you cannot give it in vain.”

Elderberries can be prepared as a tea or a tincture, it can be purchased from most health food stores, some stores even carry it in teabags. You can also purchase the dried berries in a variety of places or if you are lucky you can pick them in the wild during the summer months. You can place the berries in a pan of distilled water and simmer them for 15 minutes, strain and drink the resulting juice. I have even left the berries in the cup and ate them, elderberries are quite tasty.

Check out some of the link you find at the bottom this article, order some and try it yourself.  You won’t be disappointed!

A personal perspective on cancer

Cancer cells

Cancer is one of the most feared words in the English language. Here is my story: In 1996 we returned from Kenya to the United States after working there for 6 years. While living there I was introduced by a Physician friend to Natural Medicine as an alternative to Pharmaceutical drugs.

We were returning to the states to restart our lives enjoying work, family and especially a new grandson. Cancer was the furthest think from all of my thoughts, but then it usually is, isn’t it.

Things went well for us for a time, but then in 2002 I developed a persistent cough. I went to my doctor who was and still is a close friend. He a thought it was a bronchial infection, (I had been prone to those since returning from Africa), but the cough persisted. He sent me for x-rays and it showed a spot on my right lung.

My doctor was concerned of course and referred me to a lung specialist. The specialist started a whole battery of test, more x-rays, CAT scan, Sonogram and the most conclusive a PET scan. Now just in case you don’t know what that is, here is the medical definition:

 

“Positron emission tomography, also called PET imaging or a PET scan, is a type of nuclear medicine imaging.

Nuclear medicine is a branch of medical imaging that uses small amounts of radioactive material to diagnose and determine the severity of or treat a variety of diseases, including many types of cancers, heart disease, gastrointestinal, endocrine, neurological disorders and other abnormalities within the body. Because nuclear medicine procedures are able to pinpoint molecular activity within the body, they offer the potential to identify disease in its earliest stages as well as a patient’s immediate response to therapeutic interventions.” (www.radiologyinfo.org).

Basically they put radioactive material in sugar water (glucose) and put it into your blood stream. Cancer cells love sugar, so they gobble it up and then they glow brightly when they take images of your body.

The Results

I remember very clearly the day we did the follow-up visit with the lung specialist. We of course were sent to a consulting room and eventually the doctor came in and said, “Mr. Lawson, the test show conclusively that you have a cancerous mass in your right lung”. He paused, waiting for a response from me; I just looked at him and said, “OK, what do we do next?”

He had kind of a shocked look on his face as he didn’t know what to say next. He then said, “As long as I have been dealing with people no one has ever responded that way.” I suppose he was used to someone breaking down in tears or such, which I can very easily understand. I responded to him, “Well, God was in control when I came into this room and He still is!” He didn’t quite know what to make of that, but we continued with the consultation. You may get a glimmer of how important my faith is to me.

The results of the tests showed that I had a small mass in my right lung behind my heart. This of course made it a little harder to get to or treat. He of course discussed several methods of treatment and we said we needed to talk and pray about it. (I haven’t mentioned it, but I had been a Minister for around 31 years at this time.)

My Decision   

 

We went home and talked and prayed about it. I told my wife (having been a minster for so long), I had seen so many people exactly where we were at. I had seen them go through the chemo and radiation treatments and the results were a life of misery. Yes, the treatments sometimes were successful, but struggles people had just dealing with all of the side effects didn’t interest me. Also the success rates for the treatments at the time were dismal to say the least.

In the end I decided that I would not undergo any of the traditional treatment methods, but I would look into alternative treatment. So, I began yet again a new branch in the road for my unexpected adventure,  and let me to a second book “Natural Cancer Cure”.

I hope you will take time to follow the links and look it over.

 

The big “C”, Cancer.

The American Cancer Society predicts: “in 2017, there will be an estimated 1,688,780 new cancer cases diagnosed and 600,920 cancer deaths in the US“.

What I would do if I found that I had cancer…. Again….. Any cancer? If you are like most of us who have faced that question you will begin to seek out answers. You will put all of your time, all of your effort and much of your money into trying to beat this terrible disease. That’s what I did and I want to share some of my findings.

To begin with let me say that there is no “one treatment” for cancer. There are many things that work to tame this deadly disease, which is in direct contrast to the prevailing mentality regarding the matter. I have been researching cancer treatments and cures for about 20 years and I know as you approach the search for alternative treatments you will be overwhelmed. We all want some guarantee, some miracle cure that is guaranteed to succeed. I will warn you up front that there are plenty of people in this world who will be glad to claim “A Cure,” and take your money as quickly as they can get it from you.

I have an antique bottle with the label still attached and some liquid inside. The label claims it is “DR. Johnson’s Snake Oil,” (yes really), and it claims to cure a great number of ailments. I am not selling “Snake Oil,” in fact I’m not selling anything at all. I will recommend many things in this book, but I urge you to be fastidious in doing your own research as to how any herb or supplement might help or effect you personally.

On these pages and in my newest book, “Natural Cancer Cure,” (To be released this week 1/22/18), I’m trying to share just a few things I have learned and encourage you to continue to research the available treatments on your own. Each person’s body is unique, their circumstances are unique, their physical environment is unique; therefore each person will most likely respond differently to any give approach to dealing with the problem of cancer.

I have fought that battle and I won… over 15 years cancer free. My message to you is to try and think outside of the box as they say, look beyond accepted treatment and be accountable for your own body, your own health. I’d like to think that I can help you find your way, but the ultimate truth is it is, “Your Way,” you have to find.

If you are need to Natural Health care and Alternative Medicine, perhaps this site and my book, “Natural Cancer Cure,” will help you. I beat cancer through Diet and Herbs and found a lifetime of Health and Hope! It is my hope that you will also.

Stabilized Rice Bran – Product Review

Stabilized Rice Bran – Product Review

Rice Bran

Stabilized Rice Bran is now widely available through the Internet or Health Food Stores, it wasn’t when I began using it almost 20 years ago. It is nutrient rich and contains over 100 anti-oxidants. You need to build your immune system and this is an excellent way to do this.

“Abnormal cells, bacteria, and viruses proliferate in our bodies all the time, but normally the immune system annihilates them before they have a chance to develop into illness, disease or cancer. Stabilized Rice Bran boosts this immune system to fight these.

The immune system is a complex network coordinating the activities that protect us from harmful microbial invaders (bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites) and stop abnormal cell proliferation. This system protects us from all types of illness and disease. But it can be weakened by nutritional deficiencies, prolonged illness and inflammation, and by the carcinogens, dangerous metals, poisons, toxins and stress we are exposed to every day.

Stabilized rice bran has high concentrations of Sterolins and Phytosterols that have demonstrated potent antiviral and antibacterial effects.

Stabilized rice bran also contains the following immune system helpers:

  1. Polysaccharides (known to improve immune function)
  2. Gamma Oryzanol and other phytonutrients that increase immune response and reduce pro-inflammatory cytokines
  3. Omegas 3, 6 & 9 fatty acids and Tocopherols & Tocotrienols that have been shown to suppress auto anti-DNA antibodies
  4. CoQ10 which is a known immune booster routinely recommended as part of the treatment for people suffering from: Cardiovascular Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Muscular Dystrophy, Cancer, Diabetes Mellitus, Infertility, AIDS, Asthma, Thyroid Disorders, and Periodontal Disease
  5. Alpha Lipoic Acid which is extremely effective against oxidative stress and free radical destruction.

Lower Cancer Risk

Cancer is now the leading cause of death globally. It is estimated that cancer will kill 84 million people in the next ten years. While the causes of cancer are complex, it is well known that certain things can lower the risk of getting it. The most important recommendations are to avoid toxins and eat healthy foods. Stabilized rice bran has many nutrients that are known to help protect against cancer”. (WebND)

ALLERGIES

Understanding allergies is really complicated, there are thousands of triggers for allergies as you probably know. Sometimes it is impossible to find out exactly what is a person’s allergy trigger.

My wife has fought with allergies for years. We grew up and lived in the Central Eastern United States and were told by a Sinus Specialist years ago, the only way to escape the problem is to move to a dry warm climate. Years latter we moved to a dessert area out West and the condition did not improve.

While living in California my wife saw two different allergy specialists. The first did 50 skin test spots which came out inconclusive. He prescribed several allergy medicines, but nothing really seemed to help. About a year latter she saw another specialist that did 100 skin test spots, took 14 vials of blood and had her take an MRI of her sinus. All tests were inconclusive. Again, he prescribed several nasal sprays and allergy medicines.

Bottom line is that nothing they did helped her. I finally convinced her to try a couple of things which I believed would help her. She did and the results were great… as long as she kept it up she had relief from all of her allergies… The problem with any treatment (and I know this from my medical doctor friends), is that once someone starts feeling well, they often stop the treatment. It’s no different with those who are giving herbal medicine a try.

Here is what we did for her that worked.

First: We stopped almost all dairy products. She did eat some hard cheese and used some “Real” butter, no butter substitutes.

Second: We started her on Dr. Christopher’s Immucalm formula. One of the problems with which those with allergies are dealing is that their immune system is out of balance, or irritated. Dr. Christopher’s formula is designed to do what the name indicates, to Calm the Immune System. You can purchase it through Dr. Christopher’s Herb Shop (http://drchristophersherbshop.com/), (phone: 801-489-4500).

Signs of an overactive immune system include: allergic reactions to certain foods, plants, or animals, or auto-immune diseases. This simple combination of marshmallow root and astragalus has made life easier for those who suffer from allergies, hay fever, and asthma multiple sclerosis, juvenile onset diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, or any hyperactive immune response. This formula also stimulates the body’s ability to fight off infection. (Dr. David Christopher)

If you are having a lot of allergy problems I would recommend you take 2 capsules 2-3 times per day until you get things under control Once your system has calmed down you can take it once a day and see how that works.

Along with this I would advise you to either stop using dairy products completely or at the very least cut back to the bare minimum in use.
