Garlic What?? Yes, Enemas! Great & Gorgeous Garlic Enemas!

30 10 2015

Garlic in food is a great culinary herb as we all know, but it has some very good uses in Herbal Medicine.

Garlic Enemas are useful for the following conditions;  imgres

  1. To bring down a fever in either children or adults that is caused by a virus.  (It can be used for bacterial infections if the infection is also being treated orally with herbs or in extreme infections, antibiotics.)
  2. For men who have yeast/fungus in their prostate gland.  This is not diagnosed by any medical doctor, but I have treated men with this problem and it usually presents with either a Benign Prostatic Swelling (which is diagnosed by the doctor, but cause is not investigated.) with erectile problems, not able to empty their bladder completely or even dribbling after peeing etc.
  3. Parasite infections or high yeast/fungus in the gut.

Recipe:

Ingredients required:

A.  1 or 2 garlic cloves…if you have a very large head of garlic then use only 1.

B.  Clean glass jar that will hold up to 1 litre preferably.

C.  A “Fountain Syringe” bag which can be purchased at most larger Pharmacies.  If they don’t have that type of bag then you will need to buy the regular enema bag.  These are usually situated near the hot water bottles.

D. Kettle to boil water and a pure source of water…Ie. Filtered water, no chlorine.

E. Blender is best, but could just use a “garlic crusher”.

F. Funnel lined with cheese cloth unless the strainer has fairly small holes….if possible…if you don’t have one it will still work.

G. A thick towel or old camp mattress and pillow.

H. Olive oil or Castor oil.

Instructions:

Step 1: Figure how you can lay down a thick towel or old camp mattress and pillow for your head in the bathroom…as you need to be near the toilet!   Figure out how you will hang the bag on the shower rod or in some cases if you can fit into the bathtub, hang the enema bag from the shower head.  You can use a coat hanger and then attach the bag’s hook to it…just make sure it won’t fall down!

Step 2:  Take the 1 or 2 garlic cloves and place 1 litre of warm water in your blender.  Blend thoroughly so that the garlic is in very small pieces.  (Generally it is 1 regular sized garlic clove per 1 litre water, but if you can stand it stronger do 2 or 3, but it could cause some burning if you are not careful so start at the lower ratio first.)  To make “warm” water, boil some filtered water and then add it to water that YOU ALREADY PLACED in the 1 or 2 litre jar…check the water with your “pinky” finger and make sure it feels just above “luke-warmish” before you blend the garlic into it.  You do not want the water COLD so make sure it feels warm.  Note:  Have your funnel lined with cheese cloth ready and pour the solution from the blender into the 1 litre jar you will be using.

Step 3:  Pour the solution into the enema bag and grease the tip of the rectal piece with either olive oil or castor oil and get yourself into position on your RIGHT side.

Step 4: Get onto your RIGHT side and insert the tip and gently release the clamp holding the hose of the enema bag and start massaging with one hand toward your RIGHT side…yes the one you are laying on…as SOON AS you feel pressure close the clamp and hold the solution while still massaging.  If the PRESSURE sensation goes away, then allow more liquid to go into the colon and see if you can put the whole litre in….if you can’t because the pressure becomes to great…then clamp the hose, remove the rectal piece and jump on the toilet to release.  Repeat Step 4 until the litre of garlic solution is used up.

The key is to let the water come in slowly and massage over to the right side so you can hold it in as long as you can…up to 10 minutes if possible.

PLEASE NOTE: For children, you have to use a “bulb” syringe especially for younger kids but once they are 5 feet tall approximately you can start to use the regular enema bag.  For babies and toddlers the bulb syringe is good because only about 1/2 cup water to a cup goes in and then you can either put their diaper on or sit them on the toilet.  It is a very effective fever-reducing technique in viral infections.

A NOTE ABOUT MEN’S HEALTH:  The reason this works for Candida or Fungus in the prostate gland is because the prostate gland sits right behind the rectum and it is difficult to get remedies into the prostate because of its location, but herbal remedies can be absorbed through the bloodstream in the rectum and have direct effect on the prostate gland.

The garlic used is a good anti-fungal and will not kill off good bacteria in the gut like other herbs can.  But when used for this purpose you must make sure to retain it for as long as you can and hopefully at least 10 minutes and keep doing it WITH an oral program for yeast in the prostate gland.  (Oral programs usually contain Zinc along with herbs that are also anti-fungal, and you can use garlic orally, though for extreme cases other herbs are required.)

Sore Throat Be Gone!

6 04 2015
Cayenne Pepper (also called Capsicum) drink for sore throats:  imgres-4
Step 1: Take about 75 mL of water and add 1/2 of a freshly squeezed Lemon to the water along with one opened capsule of Cayenne Pepper.
Step 2: At this point you would add any other herbs,  like Barberry, Oregon Grape Root, Garlic either freshly minced or powdered (minced mixes better), Black Walnut, Marshmallow Herb etc.  Usually you add 1 capsule or 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of the powdered or 1 tsp of the tincture.
Step 3: Then mix with the straw that you will drink with.  Do this over the sink because mucus will be released from your sinuses and throat area.  You may repeat as often as necessary.  If you have an empty stomach you will want to eat a piece of fruit before taking the drink so that you do not get nauseated.  If the cayenne is too hot for you you can add in Marshmallow Herb to cut the heat from the Cayenne Pepper.
This is good for viral and or bacterial infections, and if you use it at the beginning of a cold or strep throat you can do it every hour or two until your throat is not sore and you can get rid of the infection in less than 24 hours.
If you have Strep throat or suspect it, use Oregon Grape Root or Barberry in equal proportions to the Cayenne Pepper.  Do it every hour until your throat does not feel sore.
The way this works is; Cayenne Pepper activates your circulation and attracts white blood cells to the area to get rid of the infection, plus Barberry & Oregon Grape Root have antibacterial action in and of themselves.  But these herbs must come in direct contact with the microbes in order to be effective since very small amounts of the active constituent of the Oregon Grape Root and Barberry are actually absorbed into the blood stream.  Ie.  These herbs will not be effective for systemic infections like sepsis or blood poisoning since only about 5 % of the active ingredient is absorbed.

Garlic Oil for Ears!

Garlic Oil for Ears:                                                                                                                imgres

Take a medium to large clove of garlic, remove skin, place in some time of garlic crusher until it is completely emacerated.  Then add it to a small amber dropper bottle.  Put in enough olive oil to fill to the top of bottle.

Get a large mug.  Place the bottle in the large mug after putting in some boiling water.  Allow to sit in this water for 30 minutes.  When done, remove and allow to sit for a bit before using since the oil will be quite hot.  Then test the oil inside your wrist.  If it feels warm, but not burning it is good enough to put inside your ears.  Place a couple of drops up to 4 drops into ear or ears and then put a piece of cotton baton inside each ear, enough so that the oil will not leak out.  This is great for any ear infections or ear irritation and can be repeated as required.

For the Eustachian tubes it is advisable to put in a few drops of Lobelia inflata into each ear prior to putting in the garlic oil.  This will help to relax and open up the Eustachian Tubes and take away ear pain.  You can also rub the Lobelia on the outside just below the ears to access the Eustachian Tubes…the Lobelia will get into your blood stream through your skin in about 30 seconds.

Steps to Healing (adapted from Dr. Mikael Adams N.D.)

10 01 2015

 Steps to Healing (adapted from Dr. Mikael Adams N.D.)imgres-1

These steps are for chronic conditions of the body, which we will all experience at some point in life, whether the beginning, middle or end.  These steps are not necessarily in the order that you will heal, in fact some of them can be done together.  Ie. Psychological/Spiritual help can be done at the same time as taking drainage or detoxification therapy.

These steps are based on the supposition that the person is on the correct diet for themselves & avoiding exposure, as much as humanly possible, to toxins in their environment. (Correct diet, with good, filtered water, preferably alkaline water so it will absorb properly & the avoidance of chemicals in food, air, water and on your skin.)

Step One:  Open the Excretory Organs & drain:  a)Bowels, b)Lymphatic system, c) Kidneys,    d) Skin, & the liver empties via the bowel.  Ultimately you want to get at the CELLULAR level which requires more than just a great diet.  This is where herbs & homeopathic remedies come in.  Herbs can scour the toxins around & inside your cells, the Unda #’s, which are homeopathic remedies, are used to get rid of cellular toxins, & will help you get rid of toxins affecting cellular function & enzyme systems, that rely on nutrients to run.  When your body’s cells are  “cleaned” this way,  then your supplements & even food  you use will be less in volume or calories, but nutrient rich, since your body will run more efficiently and need less calories to do it. So eating nutrient dense foods with less calories will help your body function correctly while you do the cleansing but it will NOT take the place of cleansing.  Eating a diet such as this will not detoxify you at the cellular level by itself…this is a mistake that a lot of people make.  It isn’t all about diet, in this case. (Ie. When you tune up your car, your gas mileage gets better because it will require less to run on.)

Step Two: Eliminate Environmental Toxins & the predisposition to “collecting” them in your body.  This can be done by treating your “constitution” and your “tendencies” that  you were born with.  This is usually through homeopathic remedies that release the negative tendency and “neutralize” its influence.  These are chronic conditions like; scoliosis, schizophrenia, alcoholism, diabetes, weak lungs, weak joints etc.

Step Three:  Stimulate the enzymes & substitute where necessary.  Using certain herbs to increase digestive power or using the Unda #’s to clean off the enzyme systems can help the person’s body to digest & assimilate their food much more effectively.  (I always say “you are what you assimilate.”)  In this way, all the organs and the systems made up from the organs will function more effectively creating a stable energy flow through out the day with no dips to the energy.  Remember, we are a human chemical factory and if there is a blockage in any of the enzyme systems the liver will try to push wastes through another enzyme system, if it does not work, you will store the toxins often in your bowel, lymphatic system and your between your cells causing you to become lethargic.  This is gradual of course and is often why people do not pick up on their problems quick enough since they believe it has to do with “old age” or working too much etc.  Cancer and other degenerative dis-ease starts here…at the cellular level.

Step Four:  Dysbiosis Therapy which is basically working on your gut and making sure that you are eating fermented foods daily like; water kefir, milk kefir, sauerkraut, fermented veges etc.  (Pickled food is not fermented.)  You may also need some herbs for the gut if you have a parasite or an overgrowth of bacteria in the gut which can lower your B12 levels and cause low energy.  Having a gut with the correct amount of healthy flora will help you produce B vitamins, enzymes etc.

Step Five:  Reduce Stress & Tonify the Qi.  Herbs & diet combined can help to tone the Qi & reduce stress in our body. If you compare this to your car engine, the gas will flow freely to the engine to combust with little waste left over and give your car the energy it needs to run smoothly. This is when you will have the best energy, no blocks to your energetic system.  The herbs & diet you need to maintain this energy or Qi will depend on your body type & individual idiosyncrasies, which is why it is important to get checked out by a professional.  Since just because a certain herb/regime helped someone else does not mean it is the best for you.  It will save you time and money to actually get checked out by a Holistic Professional of your choice since you will not have to guess what you need and waste money trying it out.

Step Six:  Nutritional Support, like Vitamin & Mineral supplements or nutritive herbs can also work well or green smoothies or juicing etc.  Anything to get your nutrient quotient up.  Think organic veges with some fruit in season.

Step Seven:  Constitutional therapy especially for the way you express and feel emotions & your body’s tendencies to certain dis-ease.  Healing your emotions or the way you express them can be challenging for some people.  Ultimately, the way you express yourself or do not express yourself is the way you were built and conditioned.  Certain homeopathic remedies can be helpful for those whose emotions are “stuck” and cause havoc in the body.  Ie. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or any chronic disease has an emotional element to it plus some so called “genetic” dis-eases can be helped by this type of therapy.

Step Eight:  Organ & Enzyme regeneration are sometimes required and organotherapy (a specific form of homeopath aimed at a specific organ to help it function normally) can be useful here.  Even some high strength antioxidants either in foods or herbs are very useful here to restore and protect the liver especially, but also the cardiovascular system, kidneys etc.  This will keep the body from degenerative diseases by protecting the body against the pollutants we have no control over as in the “air you breathe”.  Ie. We all need protection from air pollution.

Step Nine:  Spiritual/Psychological Healing:  Personally, I believe all that we do is spiritual, even if it is just the body, since the body houses the soul and we are one unit.  But sometimes people experience trauma in their life and it will create a vortex that uses up a lot of energy, since the person will be reacting to things that set them off without control.  So these traumas need to be healed and can be released through EMDR methods quite effectively or even talk therapy,  if you get the right professional for yourself.  Also, having a faith in someone bigger than your world can be essential to healing as it will give meaning to the suffering we all endure to one extent or another and hope, to get through it or be healed in the next life, in heaven.

Step Ten:  Removal of Electromagnetic Radiation (EMG) & Geopathic Stress from cell phones, cell phone towers and zones that cause geopathic stress in houses or buildings that people reside in.  Generally, EMG and Geopathic Stress cause Cancer over time but also very low energy and other inflammatory conditions of the body in the mean time.  There is a lot of evidence out there now where you can see the research on the cause and effect of these sources of radiant energy.  These types of energy will affect the body’s electrical system and cause the  bodys’ energy field  to be over-powered by the energy fields from phones & cell phone towers especially, but also geopathic stress will do this also.  One of the protectors I recommend are the Pulsor products which contain various strengths of Piezo Electric Crystals which will emit a field over your own energy field and strengthen it so that you are not affected by the fields that surround you.  (I have experienced this personally around large pieces of automated chemistry equipment while working in the hospital and the Pulsor Crystals saved me.  Very low energy was my symptom…so low that I could hardly function at the end of the day.)

How to Make a Garlic Suppository for Vaginitis.





God Is Holistic. Our Medical System is not. Which will you choose?

11 06 2013

God is Holistic.  When He created us we were created as one unit; body, mind, free will, spirit & emotions.  As imagesthis world became less than what it was intended to be, we have lost connection between all our parts.  But God gave us ways to ease our suffering until we see His face.  God created all the healing plants and the people who developed remedies from all parts of the earth like Samuel Hahnemann who created Homeopathy.

Unfortunately, our medical system is tainted with greed.  It started with the dissolution of the Eclectic Schools of Medicine, when a very rich family started putting their money into Medical Schools that promoted pharmaceuticals only.  This was because there was and still is very big money in drugs because they can be patented.  Greed has hit the Holistic side as well and you will find some remedies promoted for the sake of cash only.  It is too bad, but it is the way this world is right now and to get through it to make good health choices for yourself you must be discerning and find a professional to help you with the problem you have.   In fact, it is good practise to have more than one person on your health team.

The important nugget of information I want to get across is that drugs can be useful at times, with the exception of Type 1 Diabetes, most drugs should be used temporarily because they tend to suppress functions of the body and this suppresses the symptom or symptoms deeper int he body which will give you a new set of symptoms.  This is NOT a holistic approach at all.  This is SUPPRESSION.  In fact, did you know that the word ALLOPATHY, actually means to INCREASE SUFFERING.

Now having said all that, I will say I am not against drugs.  What I am against is the way our health system makes us believe it is “free health care”, when in fact, since we are one of the most taxed countries in the world…….where do you think some of that money goes to?  Especially when you consider that some drugs are marked up 3,000 per cent and it is covered by the government when this is given out in hospitals.

I believe we need health reform.  Not sure if that will happen.  But it can happen with you.  Take the time to find the cause of the problems you are having and if you pray about it see where God leads you.  Sometimes it might be pharmaceuticals, but many times “no”.  There is  a whole world out there in Natural Medicine that might have been discovered had the Eclectic Medical Schools had the money to stay open.  There is people like me that hold to their philosophy around healing you just have to seek us out.

Check out this article:http://www.planetherbs.com/history/what-is-eclecticism.html

It describes in detail Eclectic Medicine.

My heart goes out to a suffering world with huge medical expenses due to the greed of a few visionary people.  It doesn’t have to be this way.  We are the change.  We are holistic, because we were made as one unit…think about it.
