Fasting to Heal autoimmune disease

Posted on: Friday, May 22nd 2020 at 3:45 am Written By: GreenMedInfo Research Group

From greenmedinfo.com

Fasting, a mainstay of virtually every cultural and religious tradition on earth, is an essential tool in the management of autoimmune disease, and should be considered as a therapeutic intervention in autoimmune patients in order to improve both metabolic and immune parameters. 

Fasting: A Long-Neglected Facet of the Human Condition

For millennia, fasting has been one of the anchoring rituals in a variety of spiritual denominations. For example, all the major world religions, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, and Judaism espouse religious doctrines that prescribe fasting on designated calendar days (1). In addition, fasting is a practice rooted in evolutionary biology, since throughout evolutionary history, human bodies have adapted to periods of feast and famine. Matron and colleagues articulate this with, “Because animals, including humans, evolved in environments where food was relatively scarce, they developed numerous adaptations that enabled them to function at a high level, both physically and cognitively, when in a food-deprived/fasted state” (2).

Madagascar Threatens to Quit World Health Organization for Suppressing COVID-19 Cure

From virutron.com

The President of Madagascar, Andry Rajoelina has called on all African Nations to quit the World Health Organization (WHO) because of the bad faith of Europe towards Africa.

The Malagasy president says,

Europe created organizations with the desire for Africans to remain dependent on them. Africa has found a medicine against Coronavirus but Europe thinks they have a monopoly of intelligence as such they are refusing to acknowledge it. It is against this backdrop that I invite all African Nations to quit the international organizations in order for us to build ours.

President of Madagascar, Andry Rajoelina

Rajoelina has put his reputation and credibility on the line touting the medicine as a cure. He said it cures COVID-19 in 10 days.

“No one will stop us from moving forward – not a country, not an organisation,” Rajoelina said in response to the WHO’s concerns.

He said the proof of the tonic’s efficacy was in the “healing” of “our patients”.

He called the medicine a “preventive and curative remedy”.

Rajoelina said Madagascar till date, has reported 212 coronavirus infections and 107 recoveries.

The country has one critical case, but no death.

“The patients who have healed have taken no other product than Covid-Organics,” the president said, adding that his country has a history of traditional medicine.

“What if this remedy had been discovered by a European country, instead of Madagascar?”, Rajoelina queried WHO and other skeptics.

“Would people doubt it so much? I don’t think so,” Rajoelina told FRANCE 24 and RFI .

The drink is derived from artemisia – a plant with proven anti-malarial properties – and other indigenous herbs.

3 essential oils that are antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral

From naturalhealth365.com

There are many essential oils that have such powerful plant constituents within them that they are a triple threat to any pathogens lurking in your home or workspace.  You can use essential oils for cleaning surfaces or within a diffuser to help detoxify your household and workplace environment.

Let’s face it: with all of this talk about viruses … it’s good to know that we can avoid harmful bacteria and viruses with completely safe (and natural) substances.  Let’s take a closer look.

Essential oils can help reduce the threat of infections

Tea tree oil kills a long list of pathogens: viral, bacterial, and fungal. Recent studies have found that tea tree oil is particularly good at eradicating gram-negative bacteria, such as the bacteria that causes pneumonia.

It even kills the resistant staph bacteria.  Tea tree oil is also great to keep in a spray bottle to quickly spritz and detoxify spaces, like when the dog’s been on your bed or other furniture items.

Tea tree oil happens to be one of the best cleaning oils around.  It is so effective at detoxifying living spaces that today, hospitals – which are only recently trying to find ways to sterilize hospital equipment in the face of antibiotic-resistant bacteria and viruses – are now coating medical supplies in a tea tree oil coating, in order to help make hospitals a safer place.

As another idea: you can mix some tea tree oil with white vinegar and create a great mold-removing solution!

The anticancer health benefits of kale

(NaturalHealth365) Skeptics question, “is kale really that good for you?” With a resounding “yes,” the health benefits of kale would surprise most people.

In fact, if you did a search at the American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen or any other conventional resource (online) – you’ll find nothing much about the real value of kale.  Doesn’t that make you wonder, why?

You see, cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and Brussels sprouts have long been studied for their anticancer compounds.  And, kale – which is a cruciferous vegetable – offers many health benefits, putting it at the top of the list as a potent anticancer food.

Clinically proven to offer widespread immunoregulartory effects, kale contains a myriad of compounds that have been shown to help stop the conversion of certain lesions to cancerous cells. As a result of these combined compounds, kale has been shown to prevent and fight against cancers such as breast, prostate, oral, colorectal, kidney and esophageal.

Research shows burning sage kills 94% of airborne bacteria

Believe it or not when I posted this article on Facebook the fact checkers showed up with one of their little warnings (Soros, Gates & their buddies). Fake information burning sage so they say.  Mainstream (that has only been mainstream since the 1920s when the Rockefellers heisted the then mainstream which was natural healing methods, herbs, raw milk and the like) is not interested in herbal applications of any kind particularly if it improves your health. Might make a dent in Big Pharma’s profits. Also might slow down the depopulation agenda it’s not sustainable having too many people on the planet. Someone has to go & it’s not them. EWR

From myhighplains.com

The burning of sage has long been a spiritual ritual — but new research shows it can have more benefits than you might think.

The research shows that burning sage, also referred to as smudging, in a room for an hour reduced airborne bacteria by 94 percent.

It also showed that the room stayed almost entirely bacteria-free for 24 hours. Some strains of harmful bacteria could not be detected for up to 30 days.

Sage user Natalie Allery says she notices a difference when she burns sage. “If one of my children gets sick, we are not all getting sick. It seems to at least eliminate some of it once it is already in our house, and it does it lifts the energy,” Allery says. “You can feel inside you that there is something that just needs to be done and opening the windows just isn’t enough.”

Crystal Rock is a local store that sells sage. Fargo store manager Susan Anderson says when people try it out, they keep coming back. “They come they get the sage. They come back to get more sage and they give reports about how much better they feel and how much lighter it feels.”

Allery adds, “It’s like we do the best that we can do explain to them, but its once they feel it and see it and go through that experience, that’s what keeps them coming back and yes that really works.”

Boost Brain Function and Blood Flow With This ‘Fruit’ Extract

Research confirms the power of a simple dietary change in improving memory problems in middle-aged and older adults.

In a study titled, “Pomegranate juice augments memory and FMRI activity in middle-aged and older adults with mild memory complaints,” thirty-two subjects with self-reported memory complaints were randomly assigned to drink 8 ounces of either pomegranate juice or a flavor-matched placebo drink for 4 weeks, receiving memory testing, functional MRI scans (fMRI), and blood draws for peripheral biomarkers before and after the intervention.

After 4 weeks, only the pomegranate group showed significant improvement in verbal memory scores and plasma antioxidant levels.  Furthermore, compared to placebo, the pomegranate group showed increased fMRI activity during verbal and memory tasks, indicating pomegranate juice consumption results in increased blood flow to critical task-related brain regions.

This is not the first study to identify a brain-beneficial effect to pomegranate juice, as a sizable body of animal research already exists demonstrating it has neuroprotective properties against aluminum-,[1] stroke-,[2] [3] and glucose deprivation-associated neurotoxicity,[4] and may also inhibit the formation of pathological plaques and the over-excitation of microglial cells associated with Alzheimer’s disease.[5] [6] [7]

Pomegranate, in fact, is capable of unclogging and tonifying the cardiovascular system, which is especially important when it comes to brain health, and so-called vascular dementia. In fact, in a previous article titled,  “How To Clean Your Arteries with One Simple Fruit,” I report on the ability of pomegranate juice to regress blockages within the carotid arteries of patients.  

There is also its well-known age-defying ability to prevent adverse changes associated with the exhaustion of ovarian function.  In a previous article, “Amazing Fact: Pomegranate Can Function as a Back-up Ovary,” we looked at animal research explaining how this legendary food, traditionally linked with regeneration and immortality, may provide an alternative to bioidenticial and synthetic hormone replacement therapies.

As the research community continues to explore the potential role of so-called ‘medicinal foods’ in improving quality of life and preventing and/or treating diseases that are largely refractory to conventional drug-based interventions, we can rest assured that pomegranate will continue to play a central role in the rediscovery of food as medicine.

While much of the research is preliminary, an increasingly robust body of human clinical research indicates that pomegranate has a wide range of potential health benefits, including:

  • Improve Pregnancy/Birth Outcomes: Pomegranate juice has been found to potentially protect the unborn fetus by reducing oxidative stress in the placenta.[8]
  • Improve Rheumatoid Arthritis: Pomegranate juice reduces disease activity and oxidative stress in rheumatoid patients.[9]
  • Improve Heart Disease: Pomegranate juice has been found to have anti-atherogenic properties by reducing oxidative stress, including LDL cholesterol oxidation.[10]
  • Fights Prostate Cancer: Pomegranate juice has been found to prolong prostate doubling, as well as inhibit the proliferation and increase programmed cell death in the prostates of men with prostate cancer.[11]
  • Contributes to Weight Loss: Pomegranate juice was found to contribute to a reduction in weight, without decreasing insulin sensitivity like other commonly used sources of ‘sugar.’[12]
