Healing with foodid
HIPPOCRETES DECADES AGO SAID "LET FOOD BE
THY MEDICINE AND MEDICINE BE THY FOOD."
Hippocretes also said "Natural forces within us are
the true healers of disease" 460-400 B.C.
There are six basic ingredience of the body which is MINERALS, VITAMINS, PROTEIN, CARBS, FATS, AND WATER!
The body has over 50 trillion cells, 650 muscles, 206 bones all powered by the heart. What does this amazing machine need the most to function? NUTRIENTS!!!
Foods are loaded with Minerals, vitamins, and all other nutrients needs for our body. If your body gets the proper nutrients, your immune system is strong and the body can heal itsself. While our bodies can manufacture some of the vitamins we need, the rest of the vitamins and all minerals must rely on completely upon outside sources for adequate supply of minerals found in soil. Minerals are taken up in the plants and delivered to our bodies in the food we eat. Synthetic Vitamins and minerals are really bad for you. They build up in the body. See Minerals and vitamin page; www.mynaturalway.com/Vitamins.html
Listen to this about TOXINS!
Did you know that virtually all of our fruits and veggies have been genetically modified by man to become more disease resistant and produce more. The farmers add fertilizers and herbicides. Our food is loaded with toxins. All these toxins takes out alot of the nutritional value. Not to mention the health problems they cause. It it is very important to eat organic food.
Did you also know that corn, peanuts, wheat, and some other food are loaded with cancer or disease causing microtoxins? Bad for our body! Who would have thought?
Beware of artificial sweetners!!!!
Asprotane contains famalahide. Drills wholes in brain.
Splenda Damaged thymas gland, which produces t-cells. This is what fights off bacteria and viruses. (immune system)
Frutose corn syrup Is loaded with microtoxins. Very damaging to body!!
The meat industry uses growth hormones to speed animals growth. This is linked to record levels of obesity,early puperty in children and forcing women into early menopause. They use antibiotics in the animal which is killing our immune system, making the body more resistant to disease and sickness. Our bodies are not designed for these fake hormones nor all the toxins.
More and more of our local grocery stores today are now selling all natural organic foods. It is usually a little bit more money but I have personally bought organic veggies and they tend to last longer in the frig. I have threw away bags of inorgainic pre-cut lettuce because it just don't stay fresh very long. My iquana Iggy loves it!!
The Bible states that there are clean food and unclean food. In the book of Leviticus and Deuteronomy, Moses states which foods are clean or safe to eat and which are unclean or forbidden. Modern scientists stified these rules. Avoid scavengers and carnivores(meat eaters) they are more likely to carry disease or parasites. Do not eat scanvenger animals which is pig, some shellfish, scale-less fish, scavenger birds, snakes and most reptiles. They are considered unclean.
The Reason we don't eat these things? Well these scavengers are highly poisonous. They have enzymes called cadaverine and putrescine they are called the death enzymes which are necessary for nature because they break down the flesh and turn it in to dust. Terrible thing for the human body! Which means they can eat anything! Just Imagine!
Of all animals that live on land these are the ones you should eat: You may eat any animal that has a split hoof completely divided and that chews cud. You can eat beef, chicken, turkey, scaled fish or lamb without hormones, antibiotics, uric acid, pesticides, and nitrates (which is put in meat to keep the meat pink longer).
Any fish with fins and scales you can eat and is necessary. Fish contain rich oils Omega 3 fatty acid that improve the cardiovascular system and prevent heart attacks. Fish can insulate arteries from plaque build-up, thins blood, dissolve clots and reduces cholesterol . DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is also found in fish. studies have shown that DHA protects the brain form dementia and alzheimers. Salmon has the highest level of this fatty acid.

Fruits and vegetables were the most important source of nutrients.

Dr. Timothy Brantley, author of The Cure: Heal Your Body, Save Your Life, stops by with some suggestions for foods that will have you feeling great all year long.
Caffeine -- who needs it?!
These days, everyone needs an energy boost. Instead of a quick fix that will boost you up and drop you back down, take 1/2 to a whole tablespoon of raw honey -- it can't be processed in any way -- sprinkled with raw chocolate powder and cinnamon. The honey releases vitamins, minerals and amino acids; cinnamon feeds the pancreas to stabilize blood sugar; chocolate stimulates the brain. Put them all together, it's like "bang!"
Take it every day for two weeks when you hit a lull in the middle of your day and you'll have energy for four or five hours straight.
HOW TO KEEP YOUR FAMILY FROM GETTING THE FLU"
To prevent it, stay away from things that are going to compromise the immune system, things like processed foods and refined sugars lower your oxygen. When the oxygen is lowered in the blood, you're susceptible to parasites, viruses and infections." Viruses live on anything people with viruses have touched for many Days. WASH HANDS WITH SOAP OFTEN!!
If you do get sick and you have a sore throat, nasal congestion or ear infections get some raw, unrefined sea salt, putting it in warm water and then gargling it to get it on your tonsils. "The salt water explodes the 'bad guys,'" says Dr. Brantley. "Same goes for ear and sinus infections. For your ears: Turn to one side and drop the salt water in your ear. For your nose: Block one nostril and snort it up. Your eyes will water, your nose will run but it will knock out nasal infections."
Lemon juice also helps kill the viruses and infection. Just Gargle with and drink alot of fresh lemon aid. Lemons are loaded with antioxidants.
Honey is an excellent healer according of recent studies at New Zealand University by Dr. Peter Molan. It was proven that it heals any open wound. It has antibiotic properties and releases a sustance that stimulates the process of cell repair and jump starts the bodies immune response. Speeds healing process. Honey doesn't stick to wound or bandages. It also absorbs moisture in the body. You can drink in hot tea for bronchitis, pneumonia or any sickness. Use on burns or stings. Honey has so many nutrient its hard to list. The bible mentions honey several times. Cleopatra massaged honey into her skin to preserve her beauty. Greek philosophers say that honey is "The secret of Eternal Youth.
