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.

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

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.

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.
