"Herbal and Nutritional FOODS"

There are herbs that can sustain someone nutritionally by either supplementing some and or all of the nutrients needed by ALL of our bodies main systems. Circulatory, Respiratory, Central Nervous System, as well as both muscular and skeletal systems. Many herbs and natural ingredients do not need synthisization to be effective. This is because the biological enzymes produced by the herbs molecular system are both independent and collective of each other This mean their is no need for multiple enzymes to be produced to achieve the successful implementation of a Vitamin, Mineral, or even amino acid  within a single or multiple system.

God Bless,




Juicing for Weight Loss
Adding freshly juiced fruits and vegetables to your weight-loss plan can be a smart strategy, provided you use the juice in conjunction with other foods, and your only source of calories. When you lose weight, you can substitute lower calorie fruit and vegetable juice for higher calorie foods and beverages to help create a calorie deficit.
   Low Calories
Vegetables and fruits contain few calories per serving when compared to higher calorie foods such as granola bars, chips, desserts and even whole-grain cereals. A kiwi has 42 calories, a small banana contains 90 calories, 1 1/2 cup of romaine lettuce has 12 calories and a 5 inch stalk of celery contains 3 calories. Although healthy and necessary while dieting, whole-grain shredded cereal has about 185 calories per 24 pieces. If you eliminate 600 calories a day in higher calorie foods and consume a 100 calorie juiced beverage in their place, you gain vitamins and minerals while still having a calorie deficit of 500 calories per day.
    Increased Fruit and Vegetable Intake
While just eating juiced fruits and vegetables will not automatically cause you to lose pounds, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicates that there may be a correlation between fruit and vegetable consumption and weight loss. The CDC explains that both foods contain few calories, increase how full you feel and may help you stay away from higher calorie choices. You may find it difficult to eat an apple, a bunch of baby spinach, a carrot and a stalk of celery in one sitting, but may find it easy to juice the fruits and vegetables together and drink the delicious result.
    Convenience and Freshness
Juicing your own drinks enables you to choose the combinations that appeal to you, and lets you decide when you want to drink your freshly squeezed beverage. When you juice a food, you consume not only the juice, but also part of the edible leaves, some pulp and fruit solids that you may miss if you consume a commercial juice product, according to Steven Bailey, author of "Juice Alive: The Ultimate Guide to Juicing Remedies." A cup of raw carrots has 3.6 g of fiber, but a 1/2 cup of commercially available carrot juice contains less than 1 g of fiber.
     Strategies
Select the freshest possible produce to juice to give yourself the most nutritional value, recommends Bailey. When possible, look for organic fruits to avoid pesticides and other chemicals often found on fruits and vegetables. Combine vegetables such as beets, celery and carrots for a healthy beverage, or juice lettuce, cucumbers and carrots together for a tangy, vitamin filled drink. Drinking a sweet juice may help you avoid eating desserts or candy, both of which offer little nutrition and have high calories. Options for sweet juices include juicing pineapple, apples and lemons together, or juicing pitted peaches, apples and strawberries into a tasty drink.



“Weight Loss Juice Recipes”

Carrot: This delicious juice will help add sweetness but still let you benefit from the incredible benefits of this amazing vegetable such as digestion stimulant, liver cleanser, and high levels of beta-carotene.
Cucumber: a base of choice for most recipes since they are water dense and relatively low calorie.
Celery: Is often recommended in weight-loss programs as it is low calorie and water dense. Juice the entire celery stick including the chlorophyll rich green leaves.
Lettuce: dark-green lettuce types are nutrient dense and darker the lettuce the more alkalizing and mineral rich.
Cabbage: Powerful body-cleansing vegetable recommend often for weight loss.  I'm sure you've heard of the "cabbage diet"
Beetroot: This is great vegetable that will add sweetness to your juice.  Use sparingly.
Spinach: Rich in chlorophyll and minerals such as calcium, spinach is alkalizing and has numerous weight loss benefits.
Tomato: Helps reduce acid in body, and is beneficial for stimulating blood circulation, liver cleansing and blood purifying.
Watercress: Considered a powerful intestinal cleanser and toxin neutralizer and is good for the kidneys, bladder, blood circulation, cleansing the skin and said to stimulate fat burning.
Apple: This low glycemic fruit is known for a wide range of health benefits including supporting healthy blood-sugar levels.
Citrus Fruits: Grapefruits and Lemons in particular have gotten a lot of attention for it's role in weight loss support. 

Also note be careful on spinach intake for to much dark green juice can cause overdose combine as much as possible. A great starter for someone starting out: 4 carrots, 2 Celery stalks leaves and all, 1 Red Delicious Apple, and ½ inch knob of Fresh Ginger Root.
   Combine all the Vegetables above in any way and balance out with a fruit to give some additional flavor and sweetness naturally. Also note: Fresh Organic Apples juiced seeds and Cores in all is drank immediately have antiviral properties.




“The Cider Vinegar Diet”
 Apple cider vinegar helps in burning the extra fat in your body and is a very effective weight loss diet. It not only burns the excess fat but also suppresses your appetite. The pectin in the vinegar is supposed to bind the fat and remove it from the body. This weight loss diet is harmless unless consumed in larger proportions.

Firstly, Make yourself the Apple Cider Vinegar”DIET” Tonic from the recipe below.

The Diet Tonic:
  • 8 oz. Class filtered water
  • 2 tablespoons Raw Unfiltered Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

  Directions for usage.
TAKE WITH EACH MEAL-that's 3 times a day. It won't work unless you take it with food. It’s designed to burn up the fat taking into the body's system with foot.
I then took the same drink with an evening snack. I did this and lost 10 pounds in the very first week. I continued to take the liquid until I lost a total of about 55-60 pounds.
Exercise
Do not replace the Tonic with Apple Cider Vinegar Tablets. It is not the same as they say. Their are critical enzymes either damaged or missing altogether also You are not getting a full dose many companies Cut the ACV powder to stretch it even farther. 
Many people using this diet and follow through feel great and have results and many of which are significant. This Tonic overall is a great for anyones health.

Heath Benefits of Soured Milk

Milk over time coagulates and having spoiled or gone bad However, if the milk is stored in a temperature controlled environment ( between 30 to 40 degrees Celsius) (86 to 108 degrees Fahrenheit) 


Lactic Acid Bacteria are found in abundance in sour milk and this helps remove toxin producing bacterias in the intestines.


II.Soured milk is a food product, produced from the acidification of milk. It is not the same as spoiled milk that has soured naturally and which may contain toxins. Acidification, which gives the milk a tart taste, is achieved either through the addition of an acid, such as lemon juice or vinegar, or through bacterial fermentation. The acid causes milk to coagulate and form a thicker consistency and inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria and thus improves its shelf life. Soured milk that is produced by bacterial fermentation is more specifically called fermented milk or cultured milk.[1] Soured milk that is produced by the addition of an acid, with or without the addition of microbial organisms, is more specifically called acidified milk.[1] In the United States, acids that used in the manufacture of acidified milk include acetic acid (commonly found in vinegar), adipic acid, citric acid (commonly found in lemon juice), fumaric acid, glucono-delta-lactone, hydrochloric acid, lactic acid, malic acid, phosphoric acid, succinic acid, and tartaric acid.
Soured milk is commonly sold and consumed in Europe and especially in Scandinavia, Germany, and Eastern Europe (Russia, Poland, Ukraine, Belarus). Since the 1970s, some producers have used chemical acidification in place of biological agents.[2][3][4][5]

Herbs and Natural Solutions For Epilepsy







"Herbs and Natural Solutions for Epilepsy"


     There are many Natural alternatives for Epilepsy. Some of them Herbal, others are Vitamins and others such as Amino Acids and even Foods that help Epilepsy. There are a few Good Books that WILL help those that have epilepsy. I know I have Epilepsy.

A short story:
When I was young I got encephalitis and fell into 2 commas. the first lasting 9 weeks and the second lasting 6 weeks. It was because of a Natural Solution that I am alive today.  during the second Coma one of my lungs collapsed and the meds were not working so the old doctor put me in a steam tent which brought my lung back enough to begin a careful healing and strengthening process. So then after many weeks in the hospital I started having Grand Mal seizures and to the point of every 9-13 weeks but if I even saw a strobe or flashing light I would have one. 

So I was on more meds than one could imagine and they did not work!!! However I found a single drug that kept me seizure free for over 35 years.( Mebaral) But as of Jan 11, 2012 and due to a new health care bill the only manufacturer Decided to stop making this Med. So what was I to do? Give Up and start having seizures again and loose all I worked for … No Way Boys and Girls this is the "HERBAL SURVIVALIST" not only talking but practicing what I preach and Teach. Yes, EVERYTHING  I Post I use and WILL back up because I care truthfully about all of you. Because I had many good people come into my life and helped me learn THE OLD WAYS that actually work. So, I offer them to you all  for free looking for nothing in return but a smile or a sense of happiness.

Many people with Epilepsy are also known to have a Vitamin B6 deficiency a good way to supplement for this is raw DOMESTIC BEE Pollen. This also is the most effective way to supplement the FULL spectrum of B vitamins. and the only true way...

I use them and through the GRACES OF GOD can Bring a whole new outlook to ones life called HOPE. his is why I say GOD Bless!

   OK enough about me, because so far so good with the natural solutions and seizures. I will refer you to some books which I use regularly and are fairly inexpensive and these authors are the real McCoy and they care!  


Herbs that help seizures are called Nervine's and antispasmodics. they calm the nerves , relive stress and some actually repair the frayed nerves for better neural  communications to the brain ( in simple terms). when stress is applied to ones life it disrupts the normal nerve pattern and or the nerves become excited and there and behold a major trigger for a convulsion.  So now if a nervine is apply such as valerian or skullcap or lemon balm for example if caught in time will rebalance the nerves to once again a healthy state without the potential of toxicity occurring.  However if a secure is already happening and I do not care about the severity of the seizure if a good formulated ANTISPASMODIC formula is applied it will stop the seizure dead in its track  a Amazing formula I keep on hand is Dr John Christopher's Antispasmodic formula.
Another way to help Epilepsy is with the Amino Acid called Taurine it is said to have anticonvulsant properties. and in the book Natural healing for epilepsy there is a story of a young girl and her doctor putting her on this and the frequency of the seizures decreased and much more. ..
Another is the Rice Diet Cure. thats it a young lady in this same book is said to stop her seizures with a vey strict rice diet.

A list of a few good Nervine herbs:


  • Valerian: Is currently one of the most popular orthodox antispasmodic medications in Russia and Germany according to Daniel Mowrey author of Herbal Tonic Therapies. It is its anticonvulsant action that has been useful in treating epilepsy.
  • Black Cohosh: It’s considered a sedative and antispasmodic and has been extensively used for epilepsy.
  • Passion Flower:  An amazing herb for Epilepsy and children with ADD!
  • Skullcap: has always been known as a mild and safe nervine. Traditionally it has been used for delirium tremens, St. Vitus’ dance, convulsions, seizures, hysterical states, lockjaw, tremors and epilepsy.
  • Skunk Cabbage: a powerful nervine that provides a calmness by calcium as well as having antispasmodic properties.
  • Cayenne: a powerful antispasmodic
  • Marshmallow root:
  • Chamomile: A nervine to calm the nerves
  • Lemon Balm will actually repair frayed nerves!
  • Lavender: another calmative  a little goes a long way. too much works in reverse.
  • Another great Combination Capsule is a Valerian Combination by Twin Labs
  • Blue Vervain is worth mentioning here after reading old American herb doctors tales of their successes with stubborn cases of epilepsy. Blue Vervain is another wonderful herb nervine use by many cultures all over the world. It is an American Indian remedy for several diseases including nervous afflictions.
A Combination of Valerian Root, Camomile,Skulcap, and Passion flower made into a tincture and strained through a thin layer of cayenne will not only stop the seizure in its track but will aid in the recovery of the patient, The Nervines' work at the Gaba and calm any neuro excitement and particularly both skunkcabage and cayenne will intervene within the overexcited neurotransmitters with another form of stimulation which confuses the overexcited neurotransmitters while the nerviness aid in calming and safe recovery and recreating a chemical balance for the Central Nervous system. Secondly, Sugar, artificial colors and flavors and caffeine are Epilepics worst enemy... They are triggers for seizures. A cup of camomile tea no milk or sweaters before bed is very healthy for those with epilepsy as well as oat straw tea and passionflower tea. Raw domestic bee pollen is super beneficial for people with neurological disorders (not just epilepsy) because is supplies the purest , non synthetic form of B complex vitamins to the Central Nervous System.

Also One who has a magnesium deficiency can be susceptible to ongoing seizure starting of as simple and progressing to Grand Mal seizures. 

Some Vitamins to Aid Epileptics:
Vitamin E
Magnesium ( do not take magnesium without a supplement of calcium and visa vera otherwise it can effect the skeletal muscular system in a negative effect. ( (Bone density issues).
Calcium
Potassium
Manganese
Vitamin C

Other Herbs healthy for people with epilepsy:
Oatsraw
Dandelion
Echinacea
Chamomile
Laveder
Lobelia ( use with extreme caution)
