Cayenne – What’s it good for?

Originally from South America, cayenne is now used world wide, both as a culinary spice and medicinally.

For centuries Capsicum annuum, (cayenne pepper), and other medicinal herbs containing capsaicin, have been used to treat problems stemming from the gastrointestinal tract and stomach. It has often been used to improve circulation; reduce pain, itching, headaches; and to lower blood cholesterol.

Cayenne can be used in several ways. It can be used as a topical creme, tincture for pain spots, gargle for sore throat, tablet and capsule for internal issues. When using cremes and tinctures take care to protect your eyes, mouth, cuts and other sensitive areas. Consuming too much cayenne can have an adverse effect on the stomach.

Cayenne is also used in aiding with body detoxification with a diet known as The Master Cleanse. The Master Cleanse is an intensive detox that can bring big changes to your life. It may be worth looking into. If you have any of the above symptoms, check with your herbalist and try including cayenne in your diet. Give it a try. Spice up your life!

WATER OR NO WATER? HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH? By Roger Bezanis Author of “Diagnostic Face Reading & Holistic Healing” & “pH MADNESS”

Have you ever exhaled on a mirror and noticed the temporary fog you created. The moisture is the result of the millions of tiny droplets of water that are carried out of our lungs in every breath.

Air is actually a form or water as water makes up its content. Today there exists, water extraction machines that pull water from the air. As water becomes scarcer, the use of these water collection machines will be more common.

With regard to the body, every breath dehydrates us a little more. During sleep we might as well be running a marathon as we dry out immensely. This is why after a night’s sleep we awake and pasty. You have been dehydrating breath by breath all night! We truly might as well have been running a marathon.

Sometime in the past someone said, “The AVERAGE person exhales anywhere from 48 to 64 ounces of water a day (about 1 to 1 1/3rd liters) just breathing.” That statement is almost wholly inaccurate.

The amount of water we will need and therefore exhale a day is dependent on 4 factors:

1) Diet

2) Activity

3) Environment

4) Stress

 

Diet: A poor diet / life full of white sugar, salt, sodium (used as a food additive), caffeine, alcohol & tobacco will constantly be dry. Trying to gauge how much water a person abusing themselves with the gunk above will need is a complete shot in the dark

Activity: The more active we are physically, the more water we will need. Activity means water lost (indoors or out). If we are busy talking all day, we lose more water. Chasing kids or in some other form of constant motion uses more water.

Environment: If we do the same job in an environment that is cool & moist, like Portland, Oregon, compared to a dry hot environment like Las Vegas, Nevada, we will need more water in Las Vegas. Environment is crucial to appreciate when factoring how much water we need.

Stress: One stressed by actual emotional stress or who is in constant concentration mode, like an accountant, will need more water as their liver is working harder. Stress releases hormones that must be dealt with by the liver (the washing machine of the body).

There is a patently false “old wives tale” known by many that for every cup of coffee, you need 3 cups of water. Hog wash! Consider this; the human body for all intents and purposes is a machine of unfathomable complication. It does have proclivities and slight variations, yet, does react to toxins and reject them.

Caffeine is a toxin that we know is harmful to the body. It shuts down the kidneys for hours just like a computer virus shuts down your computer. As for how much water it takes to flush out X amount of caffeine, that is completely unknown. The best rule of thumb via caffeine is to avoid it like the plague.

Using caffeine and then trying to repair the damage via water use, is like playing Russian Roulette with a doctor standing nearby who will try to put you back together if you blow out your brains. It is a bad game to play.

Most of us know little about how much water they need. There are obvious symptoms of thirst such as:

Feeling dry

Dry skin

Dry lips

Dry mouth

Dry eyes

Smacking of the lips

Can’t swallow

Pasty mouth

Cloudy urine

Odious urine

Constipation

The above list also means one is toxic. Toxic!!!? Yes, as lack of water causes stagnation in the body. In a stagnant environment we get worse and worse.

Therefore, if you follow your symptoms and drink water when you are thirsty and don’t drink it and even drink a little when you are not thirsty, you will be far better off.

If you are so inclined, experiment and try drinking 200 ounces of water in a day (or more) and see what happens. I’ve done it.

Remember, water is the life blood or oil of the body. The body will not run without it. Eliminate what is causing you to lose fluid (water) and you will feel the difference. All of this is covered in my two books in depth.

For more information on water and other subjects, look me up on YouTube.

If you get confused and are afraid to error, error on the too much water side of things rather than not enough. Then read, “pH MADNESS” followed by “Diagnostic Face Reading and the Holistic Healing.”

Cinnamomum – Cinnamon

Cinnamon – When I was younger I never knew I was treating my self with herbs that would be beneficial to me: Toasted bread, butter, sugar, and CINNAMON.

Cinnamon or Cinnamomum is a great herb to have handy in the kitchen or café. Cinnamon is an Herbal Carminative (eases the discomforts caused by flatulence). Cinnamon and other herbal carminatives such as garlic, dill eucalyptus, peppermint, and many others contain volatile oils. These herbals work on the gut and are helpful with the cardiovascular system, respiratory system, digestive system, urinary system, reproductive system, musculoskeletal system, nervous system, and skin.

Some of the Herbal Carminatives include:

Garlic, dill, angelica, celery seed, wormwood, caraway, cinnamon, cardamom, eucalyptus, fennel, wintergreen, hops, juniper, motherwort, lemon balm, chamomile, peppermint, parley, aniseed, sage, pennyroyal, thyme, valerian, and ginger.

Reduce, reuse, and recycle

The practice of reducing, reusing and recycling has been around for many years. Yet, there are still laws being passed to save our environment. Not every one has caught up.  Here are some simple yet effective steps you can take today to help save our environment:

  • Avoid Styrofoam and plastic products. There are still some folks that use this toxic product to serve food. Most cities have done away with the use of styrofoam products but not all. Ask for bio degradable containers.
  • Look for pump sprays and never use an aerosol. Avoid those products that still use aerosol sprays.
  • Purchase reusable products such as large canvas tote bags for shopping, glass containers, rechargeable batteries, washcloths and cloth napkins.
  • Reuse as much as you can: start with paper bags, plastic bags, cardboard boxes, glass and plastic bottles
  • Shop at your local farmers market. Take advantage of fresh produce that you can’t get in the store. When shopping at the farmers market be sure to bring your large canvas tote bags.
  • Remember “hand me downs”? Try it. Borrow or rent items that you only need infrequently.  Keep items you own in good repair and loan to neighbors.
  • Buy in BULK. Get the refill containers and save money.
  • When you can’t find what you want in sustainable packaging, voice your objections to stores and manufacturers.
  • Ask for biodegradable products everywhere you shop.

Use your imagination and you’ll come up with more ideas on how to reduce, reuse, and recycle!

Digestion

Just as a higher grade of gasoline has a positive effect on your car’s engine, upgrading the food we eat can have a positive effect on our body. When you give your body the nutrient rich food your body will thrive. Fuel it up with a cheap gas and watch it crash.  The more natural enzymes we include in our diet, the easier it is for our body to use the nutrients we need. Enzymes are found naturally in our food. When we consume raw fruits and vegetables we are consuming enzymes that help in the digestive process of our food.

The beginning of the digestive process starts at the market. We eat with our eyes. Advertisers know this and have made sure to profit from it.  Smell-a-vision may not be too far off. The smell of fresh peaches has certainly caught my attention. You see and smell, and this causes the brain to react.  Soon your mouth begins to water and your stomach starts to growl.

What happens during digestion? It starts with the senses as you smell and see your food. You smell the aromas coming from your favorite food and your mouth begins to water and the intestinal tract prepares to do its job. Chewing also activates  the salivary glands that contain enzymes.  These enzymes start to break down starches in food. After chewing the food passes down to the stomach where proteins are broken down into peptides and amino acids,  and fats are broken down into triglycerides. In the stomach the enzymes (produced in the pancreas) and hydrochloric acid help to further break down carbohydrate, fat, and protein from food. The liver produces bile, which is stored in the gallbladder in between meals. Bile contains lecithin and is used in the intestines to break down fat from food. This same lecithin helps emulsify fats so enzymes can break them down further for even more absorption and use in the body.

It’s a symphony playing a familiar tune. The mouth, stomach, pancreas, liver, gallbladder, and small intestines breaking down carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Bile is produced in the liver and stored in the gallbladder to be used for fat absorption. Most of this happens in the small intestines but there are about 30 feet of digestive tract, from mouth to anus, through which our food must travel. The colon (large intestines) helps forming stool for elimination.

There’s a lot that goes into the digestive system. It must run smoothly in order to get the job done correctly. Fuel up with the wrong gas, (alcohol, smoking, all drugs, environment), and your engine won’t run very well. Health starts with what we eat so it pays to fuel up with the best. Go for whole raw fruits and vegetables when ever possible.

Green Food Products

There are hundreds of green foods on the market and they all offer something in common: chlorophyll!

All through nature, the green that comes from chlorophyl has been a healing color and has been used to improve health. Green has been used in light therapy or in other materials to augment healing. We serve green vegetables at a meal because they are so healing and refreshing!

Chlorophyll helps the body heal from blood issues, skin problems, intestinal flora, liver issues, and can improve enzyme production. Spirulina and other micro- algae contain more chlorophyll than any other foods, but any green food is healthful.

Milk: Does NOT Do A Body Good by Jennifer Mead

Four years ago my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. My Mom had been a Vegetarian for 5 years, she ate healthy and was in good physical condition.I was shocked when I got the news; it was hard for me to believe that people who took care of themselves got cancer. I did not take this knowledge to heart until recently when I interviewed my mother for a field research paper I wrote about Vegetarians. After a year and a half of chemotherapy and treatment, my mother is healthier than ever. After the diagnosis, she used her knowledge of eating healthy and cut out cow’s milk and some other forms of dairy from her diet. I credit her eating habits to her fast recovery and lasting remission.

My mother had given me a headache about her Vegetarian beliefs almost my entire life and now it was making my mind itch. I wanted to know everything I could about eating healthy and whether a Vegan (non-dairy and non-meat) diet was really a significant reason for her good health and attitude. Some people say that anything could be a factor in causing cancer, from your living environment to the amount of stress in your life and everyone I have talked with believe that cow’s milk is a pure, healthy and necessary part of a good diet.

So the questions I ask are: Does milk really do a body good by building strong bones and teeth? What are the health benefits to drinking milk and what are the risks? Does milk contain cancer-causing additives? Is milk consumption vital to our health? Why is there controversy over milk production? Moreover, are milk cows treated cruelly? These questions will be answered in this paper.

In the 1950’s, milk was the picture of wholesome nutrition; there were only two types of cow’s milk available to consumers, whole and skim milk In those days, a family of four drank an average of 144 gallons of milk each year. A milkman delivered the milk in a glass bottle every morning. Today, however, families of four drink on average 96 gallons of milk a year. The change in consumption seems to be due to the varieties of beverage alternatives. In addition, some people have concerns about the additives in milk.

Various advertising campaigns have circulated over the years, exclaiming the health benefits of drinking milk. The dairy industry spends $180 million-a-year on the ‘Got Milk?’ and ‘Milk does a body good’ campaign. Enlisting celebrities to endorse milk by picturing them with a milk mustache has provided the milk industry with notoriety and the catchy phrase “Got Milk?” is known across the United States. Looking into this, I found that the milk industry is a billion dollar a year industry run by the National Dairy Council. The dairy industry earns $19 billion in the United States and $700 million international just in milk production per year. Making statements that milk provides essential nutrients to consumers’ helps milk sales and profits. However, a teacher and health department chairwoman at Venice High School believes dairy milk to be as unhealthy as soda is for children. Is she right? PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) argues that cow’s milk contains additives poisonous to the human body. Moreover, that conglomerate owned dairy farms are cruel to cows and are also ruining the environment.

Most people believe that milk contains the calcium and vitamins the human body needs to stay healthy, especially for children and young women. Cow’s milk is not the only source of these nutrients; calcium is found in broccoli, dark green vegetables, seeds, nuts, grains, canned salmon, sardines and calcium-fortified soymilk, juices, cereals, and supplement pills. Bess Dawson-Hughes, chief of the calcium and bone laboratory at the U.S. Department of Agriculture nutrition center at Tufts University believes that the problem is that people are not consuming enough calcium-rich foods. However, MIT Medical nutritionist Anna Jasonides, R.D., and endocrinologist William Kettyle, M.D. comments that consuming an excess amount of calcium can decrease the effectiveness of several antibiotics, as well as some common medications for cardiac or thyroid conditions. It can decrease the body’s absorption of other nutrients, including iron and zinc, and may also affect vitamin K metabolism. As an alternative, soymilk contains more nutrients than cow’s milk. Calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, protein, Vitamin A (Palmitate maintains healthy cells), Vitamin B12 (maintains normal nerve cell activity), Vitamin B2 (helps process amino acids), Vitamin C (strengthens blood vessels and muscles), and Vitamin D (increases the absorption of calcium) contribute to a healthy body and are all contained in soymilk.

Men as well should be cautious about their calcium intake levels. According to scientists at Harvard School of Public Health, studies show a link between prostate cancer and a high-calcium diet. Moreover, of 50,000 men studied, those who consumed more than 2,000 mg of milk per day had an increase of prostate cancer by 4 times of those that consumed 500 mg or less a day.

Most people are unaware of the chemical dangers of drinking cow’s milk. Article after article suggests that additives in milk have potential health risks. Milk may play a role in contracting illnesses including cancer. One additive to milk is a synthetic (man made) hormone called Bovine growth hormone (BGH) this increases a cow’s milk production. This hormone has been linked to causing cancer in humans. Interestingly enough, the use of BGH is illegal in Canada, Australia, and the entire European Union because of its link to cancer. Notably, in October of 2001, the USDA confirmed and agreed with doctors that whole milk consumption may increase the risk of prostate cancer and heart disease. Moreover, according to Andrew Weil M.D., a renowned natural health and medical activist, women need to be careful of xenoestrogens (foreign estrogens) which are not made by a woman’s own ovaries. The risk of malignancies occurs when foreign hormones enter into the body. This pushes receptor cells to increase division, and growth. However, all cow’s milk has over 25 different hormones naturally, whether a cow received supplements to increase production or not.

Jane Plant, the author of Your Life in Your Hands, in an internet chat with 20/20, describes the health risks involved with including dairy in the diet. In her book, she discusses that “studies done on breast cancer cultures are consistent with dairy products causing both breast cancer and prostate cancer in men” Despite having no family history of breast cancer, Jane had five recurrences of breast cancer. On her fifth diagnosis, she was given just three months to live, her training as a scientist help her decide to cut dairy out of her diet. Seven years later, she is cancer-free. Jane used her knowledge obtained in China, which has an incredibly low breast cancer rate, to make the changes in her diet. Until recently most Chinese people did not consume dairy products, since Asians often lack the enzyme needed to digest it. Jane also notes, “The statistics on breast cancer in countries like Thailand, Japan, China, and Korea, which never adopted a dairy diet, contrast very markedly with statistics in the West”. The United States has the highest breast cancer rates and has the highest consumptions of dairy products in the world. According to Jane, the American diet is made up of 40% dairy products. As well, 75% of the calcium American consume is from dairy.

Japanese women can also be compared with Americans and their dairy consumption. The Japanese diet is one of the lowest in fat content. As Japanese women migrate to America and adapt to western diets, their rate of breast cancer in comparison to those that stay in Japan has increased dramatically, according to Dr. Andrew Weil.

Researchers from the University of Iowa published articles in the Journal of Pediatrics stating that infants in their first year of life have extreme physical problems directly related to drinking cow’s milk and milk based formulas including large amounts of blood loss from the intestinal tract. This blood loss reduces the amount of iron in the body and may be a reaction to proteins present in cow’s milk.

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) recommends that dairy products be eliminated from ones diet. Research suggests that dairy consumption has lead to many health problems including: osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and cancers such as ovarian, breast, and prostate. Diabetes, lactose intolerance, and vitamin D toxicity are also concerns. The most shocking find to me was that researchers from Canada and Finland studied 142 diabetic children and found 100% of them had high levels of antibiotics in their bodies called bovine serum albumin, which is found in cow’s milk. “It’s time [milk] ads stop pretending there are no health risks from drinking milk”, says PCRM, President Neal Bernard, M.D.

What is vitamin D toxicity and what is the risk? Donna Tinnerello MS, RD, CD/N is a registered dietitian with more than 10 years experience in HIV and nutrition. Tinnerello says, in order to get the amount of vitamin D the body needs one would have to drink a quart of milk a day. Studies show milk should not be counted on as the primary source of vitamin D, since studies have shown inconsistencies in the amounts of vitamin D in milk and too much vitamin D can be toxic. Vitamin D enables the body to absorb the mineral calcium and decreases bone calcium loss not calcium deficiency. Soymilk includes calcium and soy protein enhances calcium retention, keeping bones strong. A research team in the New England area found in testing 42 cow’s milk samples that only 12 %, or more effectively 5 of the samples contained the expected amount of vitamin D. Vitamin D may be taken as a supplement in pill form or from sunlight, which seems logically the safest alternative to ensure one gets enough of this important vitamin. Moreover, it is far better to get vitamins and minerals naturally from fruits and vegetables.

I noticed when I visited the United States department of agriculture web site and read the ingredients section for Liquid Whole Milk, that vitamins A and D are currently added to whole milk, partly skimmed milk, and skimmed milk. If these vitamins are added, why then, is milk considered so essential when a supplement in pill form would suffice.

An article from Discover magazine provides additional evidence of the harm in drinking milk. T. Colin Campbell, PhD., a professor at Cornell University, conducted a series of lab experiments at Cornell and Virginia Technology over a period of three years. He found that rats tended to develop liver cancer when fed casein, the main protein in milk. Dr. Campbell states that “cancer growth can be turned on or off by increasing or decreasing the amount of casein”.

In addition, an article by Dr. Michael Greger, a nationally known health and social issues speaker states, “Posilac (bST) is now widely used by dairy farmers to increase the amount of milk that their already overburdened cows produce. Because cows are not built to produce this much milk, they are prone to a painful udder infection called mastitis. When they are milked, pus and bacteria from the infection flow right along with the milk.” This has been linked to causing Crohn’s disease in humans.

As mentioned, somatic cells or pus cells are present in cow’s milk. The United States Department of Health and Human Services along with the Public Health Service and Food and Drug Administration issued a 280-page document, which contains protocols called The Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (P.M.O.) This PMO outlined that “abnormal” milk should be discarded. If a state’s Department of Agriculture allows milk with over 200,000 cell count to be sold in super markets, they are in violation of the PMO. In the April 25, 2002 article of Hoard’s Dairyman on page 342, is a listing of pus-cell counts for 48 states. Notably, every state listed were an average of 100,000 per millimeter of milk over the allowable amount of pus-cells.

The United States department of agriculture has ignored diseases linked to milk since 1908, when the first case of Johne’s disease in cows was discovered. The agency also ignores the fact that cattle related diseases caused the 1918 influenza pandemic. Publicizing such findings would ruin careers because of backlash from big business.

William Harris, M.D. director of Kaiser Permanente Vegetarian Lifestyle Clinic in Hawaii wrote Scientific Basis of Vegetarianism. Dr. Harris notes “all essential organic nutrients required in the human diet (essential amino acids, essential fatty acids, and vitamins) are made by plants and micro-organisms, not by animals. Animal foods contain those items too, but since most animals have roughly the same nutrient requirements as humans, we get the nutrients second-hand. The only unique ingredients in animal foods are really cholesterol and saturated fat.” This statement alone presents the logic in not consuming animals and their byproducts. As well, humans are the only species that drink milk from another species.

I had the opportunity to talk with a celebrity known in healthy eating circles, Marie Oser. She is a columnist for Vegetarian Times magazine, chef, and author of Soy of Cooking and The Enlightened Kitchen. Marie has been a Vegetarian since 1971, and became a non-dairy eating Vegan in 1990. After three weeks of eliminating dairy from her diet, her cholesterol levels dropped and she is much healthier. She raised her two children as Vegetarians from birth. When her son was 11 years old, Marie gave him the book Diet For A New America by John Robbins. After reading it, became a Vegan himself and her daughter became a Vegetarian after reading it at the age of 16.

In John Robbins book, he describes not only the health benefits in a Vegan non-dairy lifestyle but also the animal cruelty. In the cow-milking factory, cows are removed from grass grazing, caring for their young, and basking in the sun. In a factory, a milk cow spends her life either in a steel or concrete cage unable to turn around. She gets no exercise, is constantly pregnant to keep up milk production, and chained at the neck. Dairy cows produce 120 pounds of waste every day; this waste sinks into the ground and contaminates our water, rivers and streams. According to Morlais Owen, Chief Scientist for Welsh Water. “Milk is a very strong pollutant: it is about 400 times more polluting than untreated sewage. To put it another way, 1,000 gallons of milk has the same polluting potential as the untreated sewage from a town of 7,000 people.”

Considering the enormous health risks in consuming dairy products, milk does not ‘do a body good’. On the contrary, based on the material I have presented in this paper, I am convinced that milk and milk products are harmful to the human body and should be avoided for maximum health. Milk was intended for calves’ nutrition not human nourishment.

Time to CLEANSE the body

The Whole Body & Colon Program, used together, make a superb internal cleanse. For nearly 20 years chiropractors, nutritional authors such as Elson Haas, M.D., Larry Clapp, Ph.D., J.D., and others in the health care professions have recommended these two formulas as an effective means of rejuvenating the body.

 

Taken only twice a day 6 days a week for a month, these products can really create a stir in the system. However, it is recommended that you use these two formulas for 3 months with a week off in-between each month. For maximum benefit, adjust the dose by slowly increasing the amount of Whole Body Program from 1-3 Tablets to no more than 7 Tablets. With Colon Program it’s best to start with 1 and gradually increase to 3 tablets twice a day. Take your time. This helps the body to settle and adjust to a healthier routine. During this time it’s important to eat raw fruits and vegetables as they help to hydrate your body during the cleansing/elimination process. Drinking water, when you think about it, is a good idea too. Try to avoid heavy foods. Cut down or even eliminate all milk products. Avoid sugar, salt, and flour for as many days you can. This part is difficult as it is built in to our lives to consume these products every day. One of the goals here is to get in touch with our body and listen to what it needs to run efficiently.

Can the Colon Program be used separately? Yes, it can. Use the Colon Program for light work throughout the year.

Using the Whole Body Program and Colon Program can lead you to a healthier life. Give it a try!

Eat Well For Your Health

Eating what’s good for us is not always as easy as we’d like it to be. Let’s face it, staying healthy is sometimes a chore! Now that the holidays are behind we have the next year to develop the habits of healthy eating. Developing new habits is hard and most of us have many excuses not to change. Getting into a new routine takes time, so give yourself a chance. If you’d like to be more conscious of your health and your body read on. Start slowly and incorporate these steps into your life. Here are four suggestions to get you started:

Digestion of our food starts at our mouth. When you eat, be sure to chew thoroughly. Doing so incorporates plenty of saliva, and the enzymes that start the digestive process, into your food, and reduces the amount of work your stomach and intestines will have to go through.

Reduce the about of liquid during a meal. Drinking too much liquid during a meal will dilute the stomach acids and enzymes our intestinal tract uses during digestion. Some doctors suggest waiting a couple of hours after eating before consuming liquid.

Stay rested during and after eating. Try not to eat and run. Instead, relax and enjoy the company of a friend of close companion. Your body will be able to devote its energies to digestion and assimilation.

Enjoy your food. Be mindful of the food you have chosen, where and how it came about being on your plate. Say a simple prayer of gratitude or meditate when you sit to eat. Allow that energy to carry through the meal for a pleasant experience.

To start with, you might choose one meal each day or week and incorporate these new ideas. Plan this one meal carefully, and prepare it with love. Then, before you eat, take a moment to experience gratitude for your meal. Next, as you take each bite, chew carefully (remember the traditional motherly advice of chewing each bite 30 times!) and focus on enjoying the flavors on your tongue. Spend this time really tasting your food. This time chewing allows more saliva to be incorporated with your food and the enzymes present will start the digestive process. When this bite has been chewed to liquid, swallow and give the rest of your body permission to continue the process of digestion. When you’ve finished the meal, sit for a moment, and be aware of your body.
