In Gods plan the human body was designed to function with minimum wear and tear from birth until death without failing. God also created us to work in gentle but regular labor to produce our food – not in a factory, office or storefront, but on our own piece of land where with diligent endeavor (and our supportive family) we could produce all we needed to survive and stay healthy. We chose to reject that lifestyle and therefore we are using our bodies in a way that they were not created to be used – instant (or rather long term) problems.
These events date back to Genesis and although we have a way to restore our bodies most people are unaware of how to do this. We set out here to explain how we can return to our created state, if we really want to.

If you have cancer or you know some one who does please read this letter. In February (2004)the doctor looked me straight in the eye and said if I didnt allow him to remove my bladder Id be dead before one year.
I don’t want to die of…Cancer.
If you have cancer or you know some one who does please read this. It's written by Jerry Golden, who was diagnosed with Cancer, and fought it, the full article is available from the URL at the end.
"This past February (2004) the doctor looked me straight in the eye and said if I didn’t allow him to remove my bladder I’d be dead before one year. He said I had a high-grade malignant cancer in a very advanced stage. That it was a time bomb and the only question was when it would go off spreading throughout my body."
Another must read site is: cancertutor dot com
This site has a massive amount of serious research in it's pages and is THE place to start for ANYONE diagnosed with cancer BEFORE they start treatment, if they do not have faith in God, and they should read this site from front to back.
A decision is ONLY as good as the information it is based upon.
I personally know one cancer specialist who has a 75% success rate with cancer patients who only come to him after conventional cut, burn and poison treatments have failed, and the white coat doctors have told them to go home and make their will. My son asked him "Why don't you advertise that fact" and he replied "Because I wish to continue curing patients, if I told the world, the medical establishment would shut me down in a second, and I would have to move to Mexico to practise"
There are stupendous sums of money involved in cancer research and cancer treatment drugs, yet the cancer specialists still count somebody as a 'cure' if the patient lives a further five years. Five years is an extension, not a cure, to be cured means that you have nil cancer cells showing in your body and continue to lead a normal life for a normal lifespan.
I know there are many people who will protest and support white coat treatments, being alive today due to them, however there are far more who cannot cast their vote on the efficacy of white coat medicine, because they did not survive.
Most deaths of cancer victims are recorded as the secondary sickness that actually caused the death, pneumonia, organ failure, etc. Modern treatment destroys the immune system, that is why so many die of secondary complaints.
With alternative treatments one either dies of the cancer, or walks away free from it. If treated early enough, there is a better chance of walking away free with alternative medicine, assuming God actually wants you to!

I don’t want to die of…a Heart Attack.
Our hearts are pumps and just like any pumps they can wear out or block up with misuse.
Until the late 1800’s heart attacks were mostly unheard of events and related to ‘genetic’ defects, but around that time we introduced ‘refined’ foods especially white sugar and flour. We went from using molasses and whole meal grains to using bleached sugarcane and grains stripped of all their natural fiber.
Diabetes and Coronary problems followed suite within 30 years, and have been increasing with each year and every generation until they have reached the endemic health problem they inflict on our society today.
OK so you cannot sell up and buy a farm, how can you protect yourself?
Fortunately God also provided all you need to keep that pump functioning right here in natural form. Whatever you’re conditions you can start today overhauling your whole body system in order for maximum active life to be gained. You may have already inflicted many years of neglected self-preservation on your body, but the human body can restore itself in two years IF you provide the correct conditions. Damage already caused may take longer to remedy, but substantial improvement and quality of life can be achieved.
You already know that you should be taking more exercise, like walking for twenty minutes per day at a fast pace, and you probably are not doing that and why assume you will start now, except that the Doctor hands you a death sentence unless you do start, even then most people will choose to die rather than decide to change their life’s.
In Spain (where I used to live) there was a guy who walked daily between two villages (through the mountains) about a 30 kilometre trip each day! he had been told to walk for his life, and took it literally, despite (after a few years walking) being the fittest looking 'hombre' you could hope to see, maybe it became a passion for him, but most of us (me included) will sit in front of our screens vegetating until a doctor tells us.......
But there is another alternative, and one which is easier to find time for, it's called vibrational plates, a system developed for the Russian cosmonauts and which allowed them to stay fit (and muscularly trim) in space where there is zero gravity!
Basically a machine you stand on (or can use in many other ways) which vibrates your body muscles and has the effect of 'exercising' them 1000's of times per minute.
It works, and ten minutes per day will reduce weight, tone your muscles and leave you feeling great. Put one in the corner of your bedroom or den and think nice thoughts for 10 minutes and you are done!
The lazy persons way to health.
So what can you do?
Your heart needs lubrication just like any other pump and surprisingly enough that points to oil, not the type you stick in your car, the type you would get from that wholegrain bread and nuts that you just don’t eat.
Vitamin E. - What is it?
It is a powerful biological antioxidant. Vitamin E in supplements is usually sold as alpha-tocopheryl acetate, a form that protects its ability to function as an antioxidant.
Vitamin E will protect your cells against free radicals, which are damaging by-products of energy metabolism. Free radicals damage cells and contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease and cancer.
What foods provide vitamin E? - Here is a 'top ten' list!
- Sunflower seeds provide 36.6mg (222% RDA) of vitamin E in a 100g serving, or 36.5mg (310% RDA) per cup.
- Paprika and Red Chili Powder. Add pepper to a dish whether mild (paprika) or spicy (red chili powder) and you will get the same amount of vitamin E, around 30mg (199% RDA) per 100g serving, or 2.1mg (14% RDA) in a single tablespoon.
- Almonds provide 26.2mg (175% RDA) of vitamin E in a 100g serving, 37.5mg (250% RDA) per cup, and 0.3mg (2% RDA) of vitamin E in an almond.
- Pine Nuts will provide 9.3mg (62% RDA) of vitamin-E in a 100g serving, 12.6mg (84% RDA) per cup, and 0.2mg (1% RDA) in 10 nuts.
- Peanuts: 100g serving will provide 6.9mg (46% RDA) of vitamin E. That is 10mg (67% RDA) per cup, and 2mg (13% RDA) per ounce.
- Dried Herbs (Basil And Oregano): 100g serving will provide 7.38mg (50% RDA) of vitamin E, which is 0.2mg (1% RDA) per teaspoon. Other dried herbs high in vitamin E include Sage, Thyme, Parsley, and Cumin.
- Dried Apricots provide 4.3mg (29% RDA) of vitamin E per 100g serving, or 5.6mg (38% RDA) per cup, and 0.2mg (2% RDA) of vitamin E in half an apricot.
- Pickled Green Olives will provide 3.81mg (25% RDA) of vitamin E in a 100g serving, 1.1mg (7% RDA) per ounce (about 14 olives).
- Cooked Spinach provides 3.5mg (24% RDA) of vitamin E in a 100g serving, 6.7mg (44% RDA) per cup.
- Cooked Taro Root: Never heard of it? Inedible raw, taro is worth trying as a substitute for potato, taro root gives 2.9mg (10% RDA) of vitamin E in a 100g serving, 3.9mg (26% RDA) in 1 cup sliced. Here in Penang it's in the markets, where you are you may need to find an Asian shop!
Vitamin E is not a ‘magic bullet’ but it will form part of your armory of supplements that will reduce your health problems. Think of it as 'oil for the engine'.
Magnesium - What is it?
Magnesium is a mineral needed by every cell of your body. About half of your body's magnesium stores are found inside cells of body tissues and organs, and half are combined with calcium and phosphorus in bone. Maureen Kennedy Salaman states (and she should know) that the ratio of Magnesium to Calcium should be 4:1....... that is you need four times the amount of magnesium you consume comparative to one portion of calcium, for calcium to be absorbed correctly into the bones, rather than building up in arteries, joints and muscle tissue.
I had one guy who could feel nothing below his knees after a car crash, and was told he would lose his legs (as in need them cut off) unless the y could start working again. I put him on heavy doses of magnesium, and three weeks later he was complaining that his legs were hurting him, so go figure, it proved the equation for me!
Only 1 percent of the magnesium in your body is found in blood. Your body works very hard to keep blood levels of magnesium constant.
Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, and bones strong. It is also involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis.
Can you overdose, sure you can, and if you do, you will get drowsy and sleep it off, apart from that no problems, any excess will leave in the urine or stools!
Incidently, having a problem sleeping, take magnesium, you will sleep soundly.
Suffering from asthma?
Use liquid magnesium daily and you will probably not suffer in a short while, why's that? simple, magnesium relaxes the arteries and allows blood to flow, works to relax the tissue in the lungs also, which stops the problem.
How do I know that?
I had a friend who lost his wife on a cross country drive when she had a severe asthma attack with no hospital near enough to administer the drugs needed to 'solve' the problem.
That got me researching asthma, which led to researching magnesium.
One day, in hospital with my daughter, after she had suffered an epileptic siezure, I read the wall instructions for dealing with sever asthma attacks, they named two generic drugs to use first and second, then stated if all else fails, use magnesium!
Now why would they start off using expensive chemical drugs first, if cheap magnesium actually was the last resort? (and surely instead of last resort it should be first?)
Oxford Hospital heart unit found out that when they gave stroke and heart attack victims simple magnesium, the death rate dropped from 40% to 4%.
Need I say more?
Well I will anyway, because when my daughter was suffering from epilepsy, we found out that liquid magnesium and liquid taurine would stop the attack in seconds.
We LOVE magnesium!
What foods provide magnesium?
Green vegetables such as spinach provide magnesium, nuts, seeds, and some whole grains are also good sources of magnesium.
Although magnesium is present in many foods, it's in small amounts.
Chemical fertilisers have caused depletion of the soil and has stripped it of most of the magnesium it once held
As with most nutrients, daily needs for magnesium cannot be met from a single food. Eating a wide variety of foods, including five servings of fruits and vegetables daily and plenty of whole grains, helps to ensure an adequate intake of magnesium.
The magnesium content of refined foods is usually low .
Whole-wheat bread, for example, has twice as much magnesium as white bread because the magnesium-rich germ and bran are removed when white flour is processed.
Water can provide magnesium, but the amount varies according to the water supply. "Hard" water contains more magnesium than "soft" water.
Magnesium is essential and with the state of our soil today it’s highly unlikely that you will get enough of it. Magnesium functions best when taken with Calcium, they encourage each other to assimilate into your body easier. Magnesium will ‘leech’ Calcium out of your body tissue and put it back in your bones where it should be. It’s cheap to buy and a side effect is that you will get better nights sleep by taking it, as well as reducing considerably the chance of heart/circulation problems. If you do have a coronary attack, magnesium will make the effects less severe because it will have encouraged the blood vessels to relax rather than go into shock.
What are Pycnogenols?
Pycnogenols are natural plant products - the newest more active Pycnogenols come from grape seed. In particular maritime grape seed.
They are powerful free radical scavenging activity, and can counteract the effects of aging. Pycnogenols are a concentrate of a special class of water-soluble bioflavonoid that afford almost instantly bioavailability in man.
When I first started looking at my health (I was 45) Pycnogenols were the first thing I used, and I used them for a few weeks, and felt better, then one night in bed, I awoke with a headache and felt something like a plug being pulled out of my right temple, then a real surge of blood flowing through my body.
I surmised that I may have killed myself using the things, then when I was breathing and capable a few minutes later, realised that I had probably forestalled a stroke that could have happened had I not used pycnogenols.
What are bioflavonoids?
Bioflavonoids are a group of low molecular weight plant substances with recognized antioxidant (free radical scavenging) properties and with the ability to inhibit the activity of certain enzyme which inflammation in the body.
Are all bioflavonoids the same?
There are 20,000 bioflavnoids. Some are more active than others; some are more valuable than others. In 1986 after 20 years of intense additional study, Prof. Jacques Masquelier (the original patent holder) states " OPC from grape seed has an advantage over OPC from Pine bark."
What makes Pycnogenols different?
Bioavailability. Numerous human and animal studies have proved the rapid uptake and distribution of Pycnogenols through the body. Being water soluble, they are absorbed almost instantly. Pycnogenols are powerful. The bioflavonoids that make up Pycnogenols are special. They are called proanthocyanidins. Certain Pycnogenols are 85% - 95 % proanthocyanidins. The proanthocyanidins from grape seed make pycnogenols the most powerful natural free radical scavenger and antioxidant yet discovered. (Proanthocyanidins from pine bark 82-85% and from grape seed 92-95%)
Are Pycnogenols at all toxic?
Not at all. Pycnogenols from grape seed have gone through extensive testing at prestigious centers such as the Pasteur Institute, Huntington Institute, and others over many years to confirm its purity and safety. It is non-toxic, non-mutagenic, and non-carcinogenic.
How quickly do Pycnogenols act in man?
Within 20 minutes, much is absorbed and on it’s way to the tissues. Within one hour of ingestion, Pycnogenols can be detected in the saliva.
How long do Pycnogenols remain in the body?
Three days. What comes in circulates in bodily fluids and is held in the collagen for 72 hrs, it is then gradually eliminated through the urine (primarily) and perspiration (secondarily).
How much should I take?
The amount varies from person to person. Larger people can use more. Therapeutic doses range from 1.5 to 3.0 mg per kilo (2.2 lb.) of body weight. This means a 150 lb. man or woman would take between 100 mg to 200 mg. at first to reach tissue saturation. Saturation is reached in 7 to 10 days. Then the dosage can be cut back to one-half or less - about 50 to 60 mg per day - to simply replace what is eliminated each day.
So what happens if I don't get enough of what's in Pycnogenols?
Free radicals may begin to hurt your tissue. Damage caused by free radicals is what we recognize as aging. Without adequate protection from free radicals, you could very likely age faster, develop stiff joints and wrinkled skin sooner.
Free radicals damage also plays a part in the degenerative disease we associated such as arthritis, circulatory disorders, diabetes, and liver cirrhosis; hear disease, atherosclerosis, and others.
Everyone should already know about Vitamin C, and I did have a large section here telling anyone who did not all about it, but Google algorithm changes meant that it was detrimental to repeat what was said, so go visit the original site if you need more info:
oregonstate dot edu forward slash infocenter forward slash vitamins forward slash vitaminC
I write it like that because this may also be the 'prohibited site' which got this hub pulled down. So again if you want to know more about Vit C, go Google search or work out the non link printed above, described exactly as it would appear if we had links allowed!
Vitamin C also has a high level of ‘feel good’ factor; you just feel much better when you take it. As any excess is expelled in your urine, you have no problems of taking too much. You know if you’ve taken too much, because you will develop mild diarrhea, so If you do that, cut back a bit. Most C users take between 1000 – 3000 mg per day! So much for RDAs.
OK, now we need to put the 'Health Warning' on the page!
Why....well simply put.....
Doctors are necessary in this society. Most are honest, dedicated, hard working people. Maybe modern medicine has not moved in the direction of natural cures because that's not what the patient wants.
If we are stricken by the most common of the killers of Americans, the heart attack, we want drugs. We want a shot, or a pill that will make the problem, or at least the pain, go away, and go away without sacrifice or effort on our part.
Doctors are not required to take nutrition courses. They are not required to know a thing about natural remedies. They may or may not know about natural remedies, and the answer is more likely "they don't know". Why then do all of the natural healing oriented promoters always tell you to check with your doctor before you use natural remedies?
FOR THE EXACT SAME REASON I WILL TELL YOU TO CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE YOUR USE NATURAL REMEDIES!
Because if something bad happens to you when you use natural remedies, you cannot say I didn't tell you to check with your doctor.
It's a precaution that does have its merits. Unsupervised use of natural remedies can be dangerous. Modern medicine can be more dangerous. Just as natural medicine experts tell you to consult your doctor to determine risks, ask your doctor to let you see the "contraindications" on the medicines they give you.
The contraindications are a VERY LONG list of things that can go wrong when you take a medicine. Every medicine that a doctor will give you has them. The contraindicators can be anything from a rash or headache, to death.
The list is usually quite long with all medicines. We call contraindications simply "SIDE EFFECTS." This is the stuff that can happen that we do not want to happen. The list of side effects are "POSSIBLE" side effects. Some side effects are rare, some are common. Some are very mild and just a mere nuisance, some can put you in the ground. Medicines can be VERY dangerous. There is risk in all cures. Especially the farther one moves away from what is naturally in the earth.

Finally, I suggest you take a look at Dr Mercolas site, which again I have written out longhand below, but if you Google him, he will show up.
I disconnected the link because I now notice you get a 'pop up' when you visit it, so this is probably the 'prohibited site' that cause the third suspension of this hub.
I don't like pop ups either, but I dislike censorship more, and I do like people to read why:
