The Secret to M…

The Secret to Miracles

Fátima, Portugal has a phenomena’s, which sometimes occurs–the blind see, the crippled walk, the diseased are miraculously healed. But not everyone who comes here is healed, herein lies the secret, “They were all thinking the same thing while the healing occurred.” This may be the coolest story about Miracles I have ever heard. It comes from a book I am reading by Richard Anderson, Cleanse & Purify Thyself.

From the book “Cleanse and Purify Thyself – Book 2” By Richard Anderson

One page 206-7, the following story has one the greatest keys I’ve ever found, a shining gem that has the power to radically change the lives of all who use it:

“Several year ago, my friend Dr. Bernard Jensen came to visit me while I was in Tucson. We spent four hours talking about health and the mind. He told me the following story that I think the world should hear. ‘Many years ago, when I was still a young man, there were rumors that the Virgin Mary had been appearing at Fatima, and that many people were being healed. I wanted to see if this were true, so I went there. While I was there, there was also another doctor visiting, a very famous doctor, one who had won a Nobel Prize. Dr. Alexis Carrell had received the Nobel Prize for proving that the cell, when properly nourished and cleansed, was essentially immortal. He was conducting a study to try and determine why some people were being healed and others were not. For there had been thousands of people who traveled there for healings. Some people couldn’t walk, some were blind, and others had incurable dis-eases. Only a small percentage received healings, and those healings were considerable, far beyond anything that science could explain.”

“Dr. Carrell had designed a questionnaire that had more than a hundred questions. He gave this questionnaire to everyone who received a healing; and apparently there were hundreds. There was one question that everyone answered with the same response. That question was: ‘What were you thinking when your received the healing?’ Now get this, for this is important. Thousands of people asked for a healing, only a small percentage got a healing. Everyone who got a healing answered this one question with the exact same answer.”

‘What were you thinking when you received the healing?’

The answer was ‘I was praying for someone else to be healed.’

The overlooked substance that can make all the difference in your health.

Almost no one thinks that digestion is the problem! But think about it, if we are not assimilating our food properly, how can we be healthy?

Doctors go for the “big diagnoses” as is their training, ones that they can treat with pharmaceuticals. If you have any of the following your digestion may be at the heart of the cause! Crones disease, IBS, arthritis, Candida, lactose intolerance, allergies, chronic infections, anemia, constipation or diarrhea, acne and rosacea, bad breath, diabetes, weight gain, hyper and hypothyroidism, autoimmune disorders, pain, herpes, eczema, asthma, hepatitis, rheumatoid arthritis, celiac disease…

So what is the solution? It is multifaceted and many people use some of the right supplements like digestive enzymes and probiotics. These are important, but may not address the problem! Eating organic foods, reducing or eliminating gluten grains and going very light on sugars are very important and may also help, but there is still something missing. HCL or stomach acid is the missing ingredient for many, many people and may make all the difference in your health!

One of the first questions I ask people when they come for a consultation has to do with digestion. Is there bloating, belching, slow digestion, gas, indigestion, nausea, fullness, sour stomach, low immunity, chronic infection, candida, weak or cracked fingernails and hair, skin breakouts, exhaustion, pain… It is rarely if ever addressed in the medical world, yet herbalists have known about it for centuries.

                        We use Bitters to stimulate digestion. They contain bitter herbs like gentian and dandelion root which help the body produce its own HCL. InEurope people often go to bitters bars before eating.

The problem can feel like too much acid and be thought of as heartburn or acid reflux. People think, and may be told, that their problem is too much stomach acid and then take something like Tums to correct the problem. That actually makes it worse because it reduces the little amount of stomach acid that is present, making it even more difficult to digest one’s food. When we don’t digest our food properly, we are subject to all sorts of diseases because we are not assimilating the proper nutrients! It causes malnutrition and can be present even in children. I believe it causes weight gain because the body is trying to get the necessary nutrients by assimilating more food. There is also evidence that when our bodies can’t get the correct nutrients, they are more subject to assimilating toxins!

Calming herbs may be added to help relax the stomach too. Often stress is a major problem. (When we are under stress, we most often produce less stomach acid.) In those cases it may be helpful to take relaxing herbs like the ones in our Don’t Panic formula. With the amount of stress in today’s world, we all need some relief! There are also a variety of flower essences that can be extremely helpful here. (Some of them are in the Don’t Panic formula.) It is really about taking charge of our own health!

So try something simple for at lease a month, either Bitters or Bentaine HCL, and Don’t Panic or other relaxing herbs and/or Flower Essences if you feel stressed. Observe your symptoms. The amount to take will vary with each person. Take enough to make a difference in your digestion. And drink only a little (and no ice which freezes stomach juices!) with meals so as not to dilute your stomach acids. Another thing to try is eating bitter salad greens like Romaine with a bit of vinegar and olive oil during a meal. Vinegar is also acidic and may stimulate your digestion. Some find it helpful to eat salad at the end of the meal and some at the beginning. Each person’s digestion is different, so try it both ways.

Another way that you can get some bitters is in the Inner Scrub People Boost, which contains bitter herbs.

Other helpful hints include good sea salt (our Sea Shakes have good salt from salt flats inPortugal that have been used for thousands of years. Salt from American oceans may have toxins.) Sea salt, and sea weeds are necessary and important for proper digestion. They stimulate stomach acid production and contain over 84 minerals needed for good health. Eat a balance of foods each day containing protein, vegetables, some fruit, very little if any grains and fat (yes, scientific evidence now shows that good fat like olive oil, coconut oil and even butter, all organic, are essential). And reduce your intake of sugar to an absolute minimum.

For that sweet tooth use stevia and Truvia and try our delicious for the Love of Hot Chocolate as a candy as well as a drink. To make the candy simply add equal amounts of the powdered Chocolate mix to melted coconut oil and let harden!

For those concerned about body alkalinity, here is my answer. Your stomach needs to be acidic to digest food. After the acidic digestive process, the body then creates an alkaline environment. If the stomach is too alkaline the process can be reversed causing an acidic environment in the body, prone to inflammation and disease.

You may be very relieved. Your other “disease symptoms” may actually abate or reduce significantly. Give it a try! Wouldn’t it be wonderful to relieve your symptoms simply and easily? Don’t change your other protocols until you see a lessening of symptoms. I would love to hear from you with your results!

This article was posted on Natural News this week, October 18.

  • It is a good reminder of why we need to eat REAL food and find local sources for that food. It is also an alert to find natural alternatives to dangerous pharmaceuticals. Both are possible when we take responsibility for our own health and well being.
  • Knowledge is power! When we don’t know or ignore what we know, we have no ability to act. We become subject to forces that may not be in our best interest. Be proactive!! Be healthy and enjoy life!!

Why McDonald’s Happy Meal hamburgers won’t decompose – the real story behind the story

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

(NaturalNews) It’s always entertaining when the mainstream media “discovers” something they think is new even though the natural health community has been talking about for years. The New York Times, for example, recently ran a story entitled When Drugs Cause Problems They Are Supposed to Prevent (…). We’ve been covering the same topic for years, reporting on how chemotherapy causes cancer, osteoporosis drugs cause bone fractures and antidepressant drugs cause suicidal behavior.

The latest “new” discovery by the mainstream media is that McDonald’s Happy Meal hamburgers and fries won’t decompose, even if you leave them out for six months. This story has been picked up by CNN, the Washington Post and many other MSM outlets which appear startled that junk food from fast food chains won’t decompose.

The funny thing about this is that the natural health industry already covered this topic years ago. Remember Len Foley’s Bionic Burger video? It was posted in 2007 and eventually racked up a whopping 2 million views on YouTube (…). And this video shows a guy who bought his McDonald’s hamburgers in 1989 — burgers that still haven’t decomposed in over two decades!

Now, he has an entire museum of non-decomposed burgers in his basement.

Did the mainstream media pick up on this story? Nope. Not a word. The story was completely ignored. It was only in 2010 when an artist posted a story about a non-decomposing McDonald’s hamburger from six months ago that the news networks ran with the story.

Check out the video link above and you’ll see an entire museum of Big Macs and hamburgers spanning the years — none of which have decomposed.

This is especially interesting because the more recent “Happy Meal Project” which only tracks a burger for six months has drawn quite a lot of criticism from a few critics who say the burgers will decompose if you give them enough time. They obviously don’t know about the mummified burger museum going all the way back to 1989. This stuff never seems to decompose!

Why don’t McDonald’s hamburgers decompose?

So why don’t fast food burgers and fries decompose in the first place? The knee-jerk answer is often thought to be, “Well they must be made with so many chemicals that even mold won’t eat them.” While that’s part of the answer, it’s not the whole story.

The truth is many processed foods don’t decompose and won’t be eaten by molds, insects or even rodents. Try leaving a tub of margarine outside in your yard and see if anything bothers to eat it. You’ll find that the margarine stays seems immortal, too!

Potato chips can last for decades. Frozen pizzas are remarkably resistant to decomposition. And you know those processed Christmas sausages and meats sold around the holiday season? You can keep them for years and they’ll never rot.

With meats, the primary reason why they don’t decompose is their high sodium content. Salt is a great preservative, as early humans have known for thousands of years. McDonald’s meat patties are absolutely loaded with sodium — so much so that they qualify as “preserved” meat, not even counting the chemicals you might find in the meat.

To me, there’s not much mystery about the meat not decomposing. The real question in my mind is why don’t the buns mold? That’s the really scary part, since healthy bread begins to mold within days. What could possibly be in McDonald’s hamburger buns that would ward off microscopic life for more than two decades?

As it turns out, unless you’re a chemist you probably can’t even read the ingredients list out loud. Here’s what McDonald’s own website says you’ll find in their buns:

Enriched flour (bleached wheat flour, malted barley flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid, enzymes), water, high fructose corn syrup, sugar, yeast, soybean oil and/or partially hydrogenated soybean oil, contains 2% or less of the following: salt, calcium sulfate, calcium carbonate, wheat gluten, ammonium sulfate, ammonium chloride, dough conditioners (sodium stearoyl lactylate, datem, ascorbic acid, azodicarbonamide, mono- and diglycerides, ethoxylated monoglycerides, monocalcium phosphate, enzymes, guar gum, calcium peroxide, soy flour), calcium propionate and sodium propionate (preservatives), soy lecithin.

Great stuff, huh? You gotta especially love the HFCS (diabetes, anyone?), partially-hydrogenated soybean oil (anybody want heart disease?) and the long list of chemicals such as ammonium sulfate and sodium proprionate. Yum. I’m drooling just thinking about it.

Now here’s the truly shocking part about all this: In my estimation, the reason nothing will eat a McDonald’s hamburger bun (except a human) is because it’s not food!

No normal animal will perceive a McDonald’s hamburger bun as food, and as it turns out, neither will bacteria or fungi. To their senses, it’s just not edible stuff. That’s why these bionic burger buns just won’t decompose.

Which brings me to my final point about this whole laughable distraction: There is only one species on planet Earth that’s stupid enough to think a McDonald’s hamburger is food. This species is suffering from skyrocketing rates of diabetes, cancer, heart disease, dementia and obesity. This species claims to be the most intelligent species on the planet, and yet it behaves in such a moronic way that it feeds its own children poisonous chemicals and such atrocious non-foods that even fungi won’t eat it (and fungi will eat cow manure, just FYI).

Care to guess which species I’m talking about?

That’s the real story here. It’s not that McDonald’s hamburgers won’t decompose; it’s that people are stupid enough to eat them. But you won’t find CNN reporting that story any time soon.

I have been praying for an organized way to help with the alarming oil spill that continues to wreak havoc in our beautiful world. This is a man made outrage of huge proportion. We must do everything we can to help. Even though it may seem hopeless, we have our prayers and meditations available to us. Studies in this realm have shown amazing positive results, especially when people join together in their intentions. Won’t you join these efforts? It is one thing we can each do together! This wonderful piece was sent to me from the Grandmothers and I am passing it on to all who are willing to take action. (Web site listed below)

“You Are Desperately Needed”

Today the Grandmothers woke me with this message and asked me to send it out. Please forward it on so we reach as many people as possible.

“We ask you to cast, anchor, and hold the Net of Light steady for the Gulf of Mexico,” the Grandmothers said. “This crisis is affecting the entire world, and humanity is asleep. Wake up!” they cried.  “Animals are dying, plants are dying, and your Mother is writhing in agony. If you hold the Net of Light steady at this time you will help stave off further catastrophe.”

“You have been lulled into a false sleep,” they said, “told that others (B.P.) will take care of this problem. This is not so,” they said. “And this is not the time for you to fall into oblivion. Determine now to stay awake, and once you have made that commitment, think of, cast, and hold the Net of Light. Hold it deep and hold it wide. Amplify its reach to penetrate the waters of the Gulf and dive deep beneath the crust of Mother Earth. Anchor it at the earth’s core and as you hold it there, ask it to unify with the mineral kingdom of this planet. It will do this and will harmonize with all the solid and liquid mineral states on earth-including oil and gas. The Net of Light will call these minerals back into harmony.  Men have wreaked havoc.  They have abused the kingdoms of life on earth for many years, but this time their destruction has reached crisis proportions.

“Whatever human beings have damaged, human beings must correct,” the Grandmothers said. “This is the law.  We repeat:  This is the law. You cannot sit back and ask God to fix the mess humanity has created. Each of you must throw your shoulders to the wheel and work.  We are asking for your help. Several years ago we gave you the Net of Light so you would be able to help the earth at times like this.  Step forward now.  This is the Net of Light that will hold the earth during the times of change that are upon you,” they said.

“First move into your heart and call on us. We will meet you there. The Net of Light is lit by the jewel of your heart,” they said, “so move into this lighted place within you and open to the Net of which you are a part. Bask in its calming presence. It holds you at the same time that you hold it.

“Now think of magnifying your union with us. We, the Great Council of the Grandmothers, are with you now, and all those who work with the Net of Light are also with you. There are thousands, even millions now connected in light,” they said. “Along with this union, call forth the power of the sacred places on earth. These will amplify the potency of our joint effort. Then call on the sacred beings that have come to prevent the catastrophe that threatens to overwhelm your planet. We will work together,” they said, nodding slowly.

“Think of, cast and magnify the presence of the Net of Light in the Gulf of Mexico. See, imagine or think of it holding the waters, holding the land, the plants, the sea life, and the people. Holding them all!” they said. “The Net of Light is holding them steady; it is returning them to balance. Let the love within your lighted heart keep pouring into the Net of Light and hold, hold, hold. Calmly and reverently watch as the light from your heart flows along the strands of the Net. It will follow your command and continuously move forth. As soon as you think of it, it will happen. We ask you to practice this for only a few minutes at a time, but to repeat it throughout the day and night.

“We promise that this work with the Net of Light will do untold good,” the Grandmothers said. “We are calling you to service now. You are needed. Do not miss this opportunity. We thank you and bless you.”

5 Major Herbs from Around the World in Intention Tea

5 Major Herbs from Around the World to Help Us
Deal with Today’s Mounting Health Issues
All part of Intention Tea, Enchanted Mushroom Elixir!

life force energyWith rampant disease plaguing today’s modern world, many people are turning natural ways and prevention. Natural remedies are being embraced as healing allies again! Long ago this was the norm. Today we have focused on technical know how and scientific discoveries and have almost lost sight of the very essence of life, the Life Force in all things. Fortunately quantum physics has opened our eyes to the fact that everything is energy, or Life Force. That Life Force is who we are, the very essence of our being. It is also found in whole foods and herbs. It is not found in laboratories and rarely in doctor’s offices. It is found in Nature and in the positive interactions we have with each other.

intention teaThe following 5 herbs are brimming with Life Force, each offering an aspect of prevention and healing for today’s conditions. They are blessings, offering their healing aspects to those open to using them. Added to Chaga and Reishi Mushrooms this tea is truly adding up to be a great world tea, for almost every condition of the modern world.

Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus) is one of the most important herbs for boosting and modulating the immune system that I know. It works at a deep bone marrow level increasing immunity.  It actually builds resistance to colds and flus and other externally contracted diseases. Not only that, but it also helps with exhaustion, poor digestion and metabolism, weakness, shortness of breath, prolapsed organs, regenerates tissue and tonifies the blood. It strengthens chronically weak lungs, reduces deficiency edema, is a cardiotonic, heals wounds and is used for UTI’s (urinary tract infections). It is an adaptogen, helping the body come into balance, and has anti-inflammatory properties as well. It is a major herb used for cancer. It protects the adrenal cortical function and protects against white blood cell drop during chemotherapy. It decreases bone marrow suppression, increases white blood count, lessens chemotherapy and radiation side effects and inhibits the spread of tumors

Cat’s Claw (Uncaria tomentosa) a climbing vine native to Peru and Brazil used traditionally for many conditions. Recent studies in the western world show promising results about this important herb. It is an antioxidant, reduces inflammation, stimulates the immune system, stimulates white blood cells to fight infections, is anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, and works to inhibit healthy cells from become cancerous. Encouraging research shows anti-tumor effects and use in cancer and AIDS treatments. It helps protect against heart disease by reducing bad cholesterol and blood pressure and by inhibiting formation of arterial plaque deposits and blood clots. Cat’s Claw has been shown to benefit memory as well. It improves DNA repair, balances intestinal flora, balances digestive complaints, and is used for chronic fatigue syndrome, Cronh’s disease, Candida and other parasites and fungi, irritable bowel syndrome, duodenal and gastric ulcers, bone and other pain, and various forms of arthritis.

Eucommia bark (Eulmoides) is commonly known as the hardy rubber tree. It is one of the top fifty herbs of traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), du zhong. This tree, in its wild state, is now protected. All eucommia bark comes from cultivated varieties. Once harvested, the bark regrows on the trunk so the tree is not in any way harmed. The bark has an interesting property, being thin and relatively smooth, yet very strong with a cellophane like substance inside the bark. Plants often give us hints as to their use. These descriptions indicate strength, and perhaps speak to its use for bones and joints. It is best used as a tea or in a capsule rather than an extract. It is used as a tonic herb and for relieving stress. It posesses anti-hypentensive action, being a vasorelaxant. It helps regulate and lower blood pressure. Another noteworthy property is its ability to strengthen bones and joints.  It also is used for low back pain, kidney problems, sexual dysfunctions and preventing miscarrages. Herbs are so interesting in their diverse actions! I am amazed every day. They truly are a blessing.

horsetailHorsetail (Equissetum arvense) also called shave grass and bottlebrush because of its strength and scrubbing uses, has served humankind since ancient times. It is one of the most ancient plants on the planet where it thrived as a huge trees 400 million years ago! With its high concentration of organic silica and other minerals it has a strong ability to strengthen bones and connective tissue, promoting bone and cartilage growth, and treating brittle nails and hair. It is useful for osteoporosis and other types or arthritis, bone and joint health as well as connective tissue health, including tendons and ligaments. It calms inflammation, especially of the genitourinary tract and helps alleviate uric acid based kidney stones. It is well known for its diuretic function. Today with the increasing concern about bone density, it is a valuable plant with the proper constituents and Life Force to strengthen bones. David Wolfe, super food expert, states that “Calcium does not build bones. It is one of the biggest misconceptions ever.” One of his top super herbs is horsetail. He suggests taking horsetail containing silica and magnesium which alchemically combine with other essential minerals in the body to strengthen bones. The Swiss herbalist, Abbe Kuenzle says, “All people from a certain age on should drink a cup of Horsetail tea every day all year round and all pain caused by rheumatism, gout and nerves would disappear and every person would have a healthy old age.”

Pau d’ arco (Tabebuia avellanedae) also called lapacho is a rain forest herb extraordinaire. Native to the Amazon rainforest and other parts of South America, it is a huge canopy tree. With a well documented history of use by indigenous people, it may even predate the Incas! It has been used in similar ways by tribes living thousands of miles apart. It was employed to make hunting bows because of its strength. It was and still is used internally for its strength and vigor as well. It has an amazing number of health benefits.In this country it is often used as an anti-parasitic and for Candida. There is a strong indication showing that cancer is related to fungal infection. This herb is perfect for both. It is anti-microbial, anti-fungal anti-viral, anti-bacterial and has highly significant anti-cancer properties, including leukemia, Hodgkin’s disease and tumors. It is used for colds and flus, urinary infections, respiratory infections, and gastrointestinal conditions. It is an anti-inflammatory, an anti-oxidant and an analgesic aiding pain relief and addressing the underlying causes. Its long list of uses includes arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and diabetes, allergies, liver problems, circulation problems and even lupus and Parkinson’s disease. It is also helpful for skin conditions like psoriasis and skin ulcers. Coming back into popularity today, this herb is extremely valuable for the conditions we face in modern society. David Wolfe, raw foods expert and researcher of the deep essence of plant life, includes this herb as one of his top super herbs. It makes a delicious tea with no know side effects.
