Sikhs

I am going to tell you about a life when I was a Sikh. Like most of the other pages it deals with war. Why? For one the emotions are the most intense I experienced in each of those lives and once I recall those memories I can go on to the less intense but more beneficial memories. Also it's good evidence. Most of the information is of a secret nature and so it unknown today. It outdated so by telling it I am not endangering anyone. If I spoke of philosophy I we might end up arguing. So to show you secrets is fast and efficient.

About eight hundred years ago they started just killing the Saints in India for no reason at all. Be warned that these direct memories are as strong as the way we lived. We were in a very desperate fight, both for our survival and the survival of Gods presence on the planet. We were not afraid of dying or the violence needed to prevent our religions death. The explanations of the weapons and how we used them are very graphic though.


If it were not for the Sikh's, God would have been a lost cause on the Indian subcontinent. For it has been the light and purity that the Sikh's provided which kept and keeps the population of the subcontinent from becoming lost in a sea of words and then descending into darkness forever. Without Sikh’s a bond to darkness would have formed that would have been so complete that as many as a billion souls would have become hopelessly lost to God forever.


First, the shields. They were quite varied and almost always made of shiny hardened steel. You will notice the shields have emblems on them. These were removed in times of war and spikes were bolted on to catch sword blades to keep them from sliding off. Sometimes a long blade was bolted in the centre to act as a offensive weapon. One kind of shield had many flat circles on it that varied in size from ¼ to 1-½ inches across. The circles were offset slightly to produce multiple reflections. We would shine them up so they were very reflective. The Mongols would usually attack at sunset or sunrise with the sun behind them. Our men would be blinded a bit but they had taken time to get used to the sun. At the last second's of the enemy's charge we would use our shields to reflect the sun back at the enemy. They and their horses would be blinded by the glare of a thousand suns. What they did worked more for us than for them.


If the attack was coming at night or midday (or we were attacking) we would apply a thin layer of a clay mixture over the front of the shields. Then we would dry the shields in the hot sun or over fires. The mixture consisted of fine clay, mixed with secret ingredients that included peppers and a special binder. We would of course block their swords with our shields. Our shields would bounce and throw a cloud of fine powdered clay and pepper in their faces. About one second later they were blind and they knew they were dead. Pepper spray for self defence is not new.


The Kara was half of a weapon system. They were used in conjunction with 'Kapon', preferably the short swords that are about 1 ½ feet long. These were kept under our robes in sheaths. They were never taken out in public or shown to non-Sikhs.
If an enemy or potential enemy approached us and we had time we run a piece of string or cloth strip under our Kara. We would hold one end with our left thumb and forefinger and slide the other end under the Kara. The two ends would be combined and then wrapped around the base of our middle finger so it would pull the Kara up into the palm of our left hand.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Whenever our enemy killed an unarmed person he would first try to bring his sword down through his victims head from above. This was an immediate kill. It got less blood on him than if he cut into his body. The natural tendency was for the victim to move backwards, so the attacker would usually close in to compensate. We were trained to move forward and grab the sword with our thumb and forefinger. We would let the sharp edge come to rest against our Kara. At this point, half the time the enemy knew he was dead. The other half of the time he knew something was very wrong. The Sikh would quickly draw his weapon and dispatch him. Slitting a throat with a knife needs no explanations.

 

 

     

 

 

 

 

Evidence that this was the real reason Sikh's wear Kara's is not at all hard to find. All you have to do is look you will find Kara's that are made of a string of steel balls over a heavy steel wire, which is identical to the strings of body armour and some of the chakras. If a sword hit any of these it went between the balls which prevented it from slipping off and causing injury. The sword would stay where it hit, be it a Kara, the steelhead band, or body armour. All you have to do is look and you can see the relationship between all of these devices.


The 1-½ foot long sword needs explaining. It was sharpened on the inside curve of the blade (at least the first few inches) not on the outside, as are other swords. This was to facilitate the creation of a large exit wound. The radius of the curve of the blade is pretty small when compared to other swords. It corresponds to the arc the hand moves through when the elbow is held still and the hand is moved up and down in the stabbing motion like above.


When a man lifted his sword we would step into it and block the murderer's sword with our wrist and the Kara. Then we would quickly back off, draw our blade and bring it down next to the shoulder near the neck. It would go down through the heart and lungs to about the waist. With a thin blade that was swung in a short arc, it only made a 1 inch slit. When the hilt bottomed out on the man's shoulder you locked you wrist and stepped quickly to the man's side, twisting the blade 90 degrees. You snapped your wrist and locked it so the sword was pulled towards you cutting through the heart and lungs to the ribs. Then with your wrist locked, you pulled the sword straight up and out. It was all over before our adversary was able to lift his heavy sword for another blow.

Swords were custom made. You will notice how each authentic Sikh battle sword is different in curvature. It's not a lack of uniformity. The arc of the sword is the same as the swing of the Sikh's arm to whom it belonged (The arc created by swinging your arm when held stiff.)


Most of the time the sword was swung in battle but occasionally it was used to stab upwards through a man's stomach. By making the curvature the same as the arc of the man’s arm movement, only a two inch cut had to be made. (Trust me human bodies are hard to cut through, especially if you are exhausted from fighting.) Then once sword went through the body you pushed the sword downward to increase the damage.


On the top of the handle of the swords are knobs. This is not for ornamentation nor are they to hang the sword by. When a warrior crossed swords with the enemy it was over their heads. Then the Sikh would bring down the butt of the sword sharply on the enemy's head (or the shoulder blade if he was wearing a helmet). Our warrior would back off and wait. Within ten seconds the tear ducts would involuntarily release and the enemy would be blinded for a couple of minutes with tears. Again, death.

 


Now for the big flat swords that are so completely different from the other swords. The one with the heavy blunt tip. The big men were given those swords. The swords that I recall were actually weighted at the end. Some times we knew a battle was coming by when the man would volunteer to chop up our firewood. We would let him. This occurred once when we were at peace and two weeks later we were in battle. How he knew that war was drawing near we never did figure out.


When one of the enemy was found to be fearless and skilled, we could not let him live. This was for several reasons. He was a pro and we would have to face him again. We certainly didn't want him to go around for the rest of his life saying that God’s warriors were not so invincible, nor did we want him to train others in his ways, etc.


So even though our greatest assets were our skill with weapons we would change tactics. Our heavy chopper went right for the swordsmen. The Moslem would use his sword to block the downward movement of our mans flat sword, however the enemy's sword was light. The choppers strength and the weight of his sword would crash until it found flesh. Our skills and brains were no match for those who spend their entire life training to kill your people. That is why we changed the rules and used power.

 

 

The real 'rock stars' of the Sikh warriors were the young men who used a pair of Kattars. They were the trouble makers so we gave them a way to make a lot of trouble for the Moslem invaders.

The Katars were close combat weapons and were not intended for fighting one to one on a clear field. Instead, these men were expected to jump into the middle of a fight involving up to six men and kill all the enemy before the first one hit the ground. Three against three, two against four or four against two, it didn't matter. These men were fluid and fast. Their weapons light and sharp. The combination was invincible. They would cross their weapons to catch an enemy's sword. Push off with one Kattar and cut in half either the bicep, forearm or triceps of the enemy and disable him. Severing any of these muscles or ligaments permanently disabled that arm. Then the fatal cut could wait.


These men were so fast they could block swords from two men, figure out which was less of a threat, slide in, cut a muscle or ligament, then turn back to the adept man who was still drawing back his sword and disable him before he could he could even begin to swing his sword.
They were so fast, it took less than a second. You couldn't even see their hands. They were just a blur and a flash of steel. They were the real secret weapons and though this weapon had been used before it was never in the effective manner Sikhs used them. We all trained with them but only about two out of 50 of our men were trained to use them extensively (Some men used them as side arms and one of them were effective when used with a shield), yet they often accounted for half the dead. The rest of the men knew to parry and keep at bay any skilled swordsman until one of them could jump in.
They had secret training that taught them things like how long it took a person to bleed to death with different cuts and how each cut disabled. The one story I heard about was told to me by another Sikh. He was sword fighting a Moslem when one of the Kattar men jumping in and stabbed the enemy in the gut just deep enough to cut some intestines (which always resulted in a slow and painful death). Our Kattar man stopped, looked the wounded man right in the eyes and said, 'you're (already) dead'. When the guy understood this and had lost his spirit, he moved on to the next critical fight. By comparison, our warriors were trained to go on even when they didn't have any blood left.
Kattar men were special guys. They were fast, intelligent and never faltered. They always kept their heads. They usually retired at about 25 when their bodies slowed and they realized how foolish it was to continue. These men were kept secret. They went into battle with swords but would drop them and pull out their faster weapons when the need arose.
I am confused about the names of the weapons. For a long time our weapons were all secret. We had no names for them nor were we allowed to give them names. Even today I cringe a little when some one says the name of one of our weapons. The reason was simple. Think of the defeated enemy. When he return ft him for another Sikh to kill.' This kind of explanation of dying took a lot of enthusiasm out of any invader. Not naming the weapons left a certain legacy. There is still a lack of name's for the weapons and this is why some of the names are ambiguous.
There was one weapon I felt was/is mine since I had a big hand in developing it. I have only seen one set of them and it was when I helped set them out at a Baisakhi four years ago. They are like claws. They are only about 5" long and quite curved. The edges are not sharp. The ends are flat and function as flattened fingernail would. In fact that is what these weapons mimic, but larger and stronger than fingernails. These were very effective and the women often used them.

They were tied to a persons forearm with string or cloth and worn beneath their sleeves. They were not sharp so they would not cut the arms they strapped to. If confronted by an aggressor they would bow before them. That would put the enemy at ease and conceal their hands which would grab the handles of those 5" claws that could tear a mans throat out. (Perhaps someone knows where a set of these are so I can take a photograph.) ed to camp he wasn't able to explain away a comrades death simply by saying: 'He was killed with a Kattar' He had to describe his death like this: 'When he was fighting one man with a sword, another man with two long claws came up and in two seconds cut him 4 or 6 times until he couldn’t use his arms then that man le There were many other weapons including a hollow log that overhung the river at a bend we defended. The log had been patiently hollowed out and then loaded with gunpowder and I assume rocks. I was one of those assigned to it. If during my watch the enemy crossed the river I was to wait until a good amount got to the centre but before the first made it out of the riverbed. I think I was supposed to crouch behind and little off to the side of the log and light the damn thing with stick that had something burning on the end of it. The whole log would explode but most of the damage would be in front. It was expected to take out about 20 men but more to the point, it would stop the charge. Now I remember. It was reinforced with a lining of sheet steel so it was supposed to handle one shot. I don't like to think about so I must not have trusted it.

By the way one of his previous incarnations, Yogi Bahjan commanded that whole area. We felt quite safe because he was the Moslem leader and he was very ineffective.

In the build up to the invasion of the golden temple complex in Amritsar and the destruction of the symbolic seat of the temporal power of the khalsa in 1984, the wanted man in question Jarnail Singh bhindranwhalia gave himself up to the police authorities. Without charge he was released, what could they charge him with? May be incitement to violence. He gave speeches, pointing out the injustices bought upon the ethnic minority group in the northwest of India that are the Sikhs/Khalsa. The building of canals, diverting river water from the Punjab to Delhi and former part of a larger Punjab but now the new state of Haryana. The consequence of this award is to lower the water table in the Punjab thus having the grave effect of reducing the crop yields, affecting economically the Sikhs. Jarnail Singh pointed this out and listeners took it upon themselves in anger, without receiving any orders from anybody to gun down all the workers on the canal. The state controlled media took this action to wage a propaganda offensive building this man, with only a few tens of devout followers to be a super- terrorist that was a threat to national security and hence arousing the far right nationalists of the Indian mainstream population that are of a separate religious denomination. This being tantamount to an incitement to violence by the state administration. The speeches were therefore not against the law in a country that claims to be the biggest democracy in the world (freedom of speech). I have justified the release of this man but the motives of the state administration are clear. They need him out there to further build him up to be a super-terrorist that will allow them to call for a state of emergency in the Punjab, and as you well know which transpires in the security forces seizing control of the Punjab. Now you have a situation where the Punjab is enclosed in an iron curtain, reporters forced to leave, approximately 500,000 thousand solders and other so called security forces armed ready to execute what is absolute genocide. Sikh soldiers were confined to barracks at this time.

I have spent time in the Punjab, speaking to people who recite images of murder, streams in Amritsar running red with blood. From what I can gage from my personal experiences with people in the Punjab, is that the state army and security forces murdered Sikhs in the region of 250,000.

Back to Jarnail Singh Bhinranwhalia, who after all was the focus of this incursion and the sole reason for the state of emergency in the Punjab. They attacked the entire golden temple complex conveniently on the anniversary of the martyrdom of the fifth spiritual leader of the khalsa, knowing full well that many devotees would be present in homage and prayer at the temple "like lambs to the slaughter". Also one has to ask the question why did they attack approximately sixty Sikh temples all across the Punjab when they with absolute fact knew that Jarnail Singh was in Amritsar in the building called the Akal Thakt, the symbolic seat of the temporal power of the khalsa. Why did they feel the need for so many troops when Jarnail Singh's location was known and he could be isolated very easily. The troops went in, destroyed the Akal Thakt and other parts of the golden temple, killed Jarnail Singh and his so called terrorist group in a short time, there was no need to occupy the entire Punjab unless they had plans for all the Sikhs in the Punjab, unless this was part of the strategy for the genocide of the Sikhs. After Jarnail Singh was killed the army occupied the golden temple complex which is seen by many as the sanctum sanatorium of the khalsa/Sikh community of the world, they occupied it for no clear reason and the solders looted the temples treasury and burned down the temples library, both containing religious relics and hand written texts by the Sikh spiritual leaders up to 500 hundred years old. A clear and decisive method to destroy the physce and dignity of the Sikh community.

The aftermath. It is logical and easily conceivable that there will be elements that remain strong and look to protect its people from any more murder and will simply be seeking some justice and retribution. These elements, we will address them as militants, are even more dangerous now because their dignity has been destroyed and they do not posses a stable physiology having witnessed the mass genocide of their kinsman. This was seen in Rwanda were Tutsi militias took control of the capital and the Hutu population retreated into Zaire having just committed the genocide of the Tutsi ethnic group. I understand that this is a very saw point with the United States, state department as it vetoed along with the British not to send more troops into Rwanda under chapter seven of the united nations charter. Not accepting genocide because this would have placed an obligation to intervene by the USA under the auspices of the United Nations. Showing a great deal of pusillanimity that was born from there experience in Mogadishu in Somalia, therefore having to bear the weights of guilt and responsibility for the murder of upwards of 800,000 ethnic Tutsi's in Rwanda. Groups started to emerge from within the Punjab; Babbar Khalsa International (BKI), Khalistan Commando Force (KCF), Khalistan Liberation Force (KLF), Bhindranwala Tiger Force of Khalistan (BTFK) to name but a few. They targeted members of the Punjab police who played a significant role in the genocide of the Sikhs and members of the families of Punjab police officers. Do you see these groups as cold hearted terrorists? If we consider the burden of witnessing the mass genocide of their kinsman, it is acceptable that they seek retribution against those that partook in the genocide, but not members of their families. I can only offer the argument of diminished responsibility on the part of the Sikh militia based on the fact that in there actions was a reduced capacity of physiological cognisance manifested in the killing and the rape of there kinsman. This situation in the Punjab created by the Indian government was seen as a further opportunity to exterminate the Sikhs. The state controlled propaganda machine kept rolling, giving licence to the Punjab police to be heavy handed, having every excuse to kill at will, proclaiming innocent Sikhs who were murdered to belong to this Sikh militant group or that Sikh militant group. From my personal experience with people in the Punjab and reading a broad range of literature I am of the opinion that a number in the region of 1,000,000 Sikhs were murdered in the Punjab from the years 1984-1993. It came to a halt in 1992 with the capture and murder of top officials in the Sikh militia organisations, Sukhdev Singh Babbar (BKI), Gurjant Singh Bhudsinghwala, Avtar Singh Bhrama (KLF), Gurbachan Singh Manochahal, Parmjit Singh Panjawar (KCF/BTFK) but to name a few. No militia, no reason or licence for Punjab police to kill innocent Sikhs. During my time in the Punjab in the late 90's a pleasant time but for one instance where I was very nearly robbed by a member of the Punjab police. To this day the Punjab police are hated by the mainstream population of the Punjab and to this day they keep on terrorising the Sikh population of the Punjab. They take money with force from civilians; they call it water and tea money. This a legacy of being handed large sums of money by the Indian administration in Delhi for the heads of Sikhs, this being the reason why no senior members of the Sikh militia groups were ever tried for there alleged crimes, because they were captured and tortured to death in police custody for the rewards.

From where did all this hate for the Sikhs by Indira Gandhi arise? The Gandhi-Nehru dynasty was a nationalistic dynasty that saw an India for Hindu’s, a Hindustan, a term that is commonly used in India and by ethnic Hindu’s, which in no doubt causes offence to other ethnic groups in India. In the 60's Jawarlal Nehru following his Hindustan dream went on a campaign to push for legislation that saw the removal of the Punjabi language being taught in schools in the Punjab. Eminent Sikh leaders namely Sant Fateh Singh opposed a move to the oblivion of the Punjabi culture and closely connected Sikh religion. He went on hunger strikes and organised rallies ...etc, this forced the whiley well educated J. Nehru to abandon his plan for nullifying the Punjab language but for a well liked second prize. He enforced a plan that made it only possible to keep the Punjabi language if the borders of the Punjab were redefined to not include districts where the majority populations were of the Hindu religious denomination. This saw the halving of the Punjab State to a smaller Punjab and the new Haryana State. During the partition we lost half of or beloved Punjab and now we're left with one quarter. When his daughter Indira Gandhi came to power in the seventies, a chip of the old block, she never forgot the troubles her father had experienced with the Sikhs in the Punjab and of cause followed her father’s ideology of a Hindustan. Indira was convicted of election fraud in the late seventies and the main stream population did not batter an eyelid because she was seen as a demi-god by them being the daughter of J. Nehru. The Sikhs in the Punjab expressed their concern with the retaining of power by indira Gandhi, the constitutional limitations that allowed her to remain in power. She saw the Sikhs as a perennial thorn in the side of her, that she wanted rid of by any means. With the emergence of Jarnail Singh Bhindranwala in the early 80's she saw her chance to create and mould a situation in the Punjab that would allow for the extermination of the Sikhs and the creation of a true Hindustan. In the opinions of many she is seen as being tantamount to Adolf Hitler and after her Slobodan Milosevic. There is a word in the Punjabi language that reads remarkably like Gandhi and it means dirty.

The USA state department has to recognise that they along with everybody on the face of this earth has a moral obligation towards humanity and not just to their own citizens or their own economic situation. Your shortcomings with regards to this point allowed for the genocide to take place in Rwanda. I acknowledge the good the USA has done for humanity in the intervention in the Balkans, WW2 etc, but it cannot be selective or even not accept genocide is happening to avoid its responsibility. I remember a United States               State department spokeswoman explicitly suggesting that “acts of genocide were taking place in Rwanda” but did not accept genocide was taking place. The USA assumes a special role in the protection of humanity being the only super-power left, and has to take on this role with moral endeavour. The question of the credibility of the UN was an issue before this current Iraq crisis. An international body that’s rule is decided by its most powerful members, who use it as a tool to cater for their own interests. The majority accept a genocide is taking place, but a permanent member who has the power of veto decides they cannot be bothered or it will have a negative impact on the elections in their own country.  

I hope to receive a reply.

 

 

 

Poem:

'Leave your stubbornness, serve the saints and have faith in their word.'
(Guru V, Gauri Raag : Guru Granth Sahib Jee)

I was to proud to fall to Your feet,
I was a liar and I was a cheat,
My faith shook like an autumn leaf,
O Guru Nanak forgive me for my mind is weak,
My time has come and now I weep.
I didn't see this was Waheguru's wonderful play,
I didn't see I was merely acting as He'd say,
To some ,Guru Nanak, You revealed this game
And bestowed the gift of His Name
The Divine Light beamed from their face
O Guru Nanak You give endlessly, give me faith.

A powerful question it is, and a very personal one for many Sikhs who have been living in foreign countries, such as England, USA and Canada. Many if not all who have been raised, or nearly raised their entire life in these countries, must have asked the same question that I have, over and over, why am I a Sikh?. Why do I follow the Sikh religious beliefs? and most importantly, what is it to be a Sikh?

I have lived 21 of my 24 years in Toronto and like most Sikhs who maintained unshorn hair, have been harshly ridiculed, had to fight physical and verbal battles with my school mates almost every day. Just trying to survive in this white-dominated culture where children were out rightly racist, was a tough daily battle. The only thing that kept me strong at heart, was hearing the stories my father used to read to us all, of the lives of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, his children and other Sikh Martyrs who gave all for their faith in Sikhism.

Though I was still young and didn't understand the details of Sikh values at that time, just having role models like Guru Gobind Singh Ji' young children (Baba Zorawar Singh and Baba Fateh Singh) kept my spirits alive and allowed me to pass through this most critical time in my life as a youngster with a strong sense that Sikhs were brave, strong, courageous and that we would give our life, but stand tall like warriors and face all obstacles.

Today the racism has decreased many fold since the 1970s and early 80s when I was in public school, however it is still very real and visible to Sikh boys who maintain their long hair. They endure the same subtle discrimination by their class mates. The only difference being, it is less physical nowadays.

The last few years, since entering University I have asked myself many difficult questions such as, would life not be easier if I just adopted the norm of today's society? by cutting my hair, drinking alcohol, smoking, hanging around in bars and partying?!

I had to fight an inner battle, the reason being that I knew much of what Sikh values were and what a Sikh should be doing, but did not see it in practice in society. The attitude if 'no one else cares, then why should I'? was prevalent for a short period of time in me. In my eyes Sikhs were no longer Sikhs. They might have been born into a Sikh family, but they did not practice what my concept of Sikhi was. Doing your prayers, trying to understand Gurbani, keeping long unshorn hair, not drinking, smoking, sleeping around, having inter-religious affairs and so on. These were not Sikh behaviours to me, but western values which Sikhs were endorsing full heartily and still are doing.

I am no exception, I to when the time came, got into a relationship with a Hindu girl, and would love to have married her, but circumstances did not allow it. The last year has been the most craziest of my life. For some unknown reasons to me, a Muslim girl came into my life. This was the most challenging time of my entire life. The reason being, I loved her and she loved me, however, I could never marry her unless I convert to Islam she said.

Now what is a 23 year old, warm blooded Sikh to do? I love her, but at the same time, I knew my Gurus, their children, the many other Martyrs gave their life, but did not accept Islam. Should I betray their sacrifices? for LOVE?

I was so confused, why did she not say such before coming into my life, "that she can only marry a Muslim"? Why after taking my heart did she throw this piercing thorn into our relationship? However when I reflected, I knew I had strayed away from the Sikh values, and if I wanted to maintain Sikh values, I would have to give her up, or she would have to convert to Sikhism.

I asked myself why did my Gurus sacrificed their lives for Sikhism? It must be truly the greatest religion? Why did they ignore all the riches of the world, the pleasures of society? of women? but immersed themselves in the love of God?

This period was the most testing in my life. If I had not known about Sikhism, I would have probably "jumped the gun" so to speak and married her by converting to Islam. However when I looked into what Sikhism is, what are its values, what is its history, I knew I would be doing a grave injustice not only to my Gurus, but my own soul, for forsaking the most humanly religion in the entire world. Most poetic, most respecting of all other religions, and foremost, only religion in the entire world, where Sikhs have sacrificed their lives to help save another religion. The ninth, Guru Teg Bahadur Ji, just one prime example. How can I betray this worldly religion, which respects all humans, does not enforce itself on anyone, respects all religions alike, for humanly pleasure? I didn't. I couldn't. Blessed with the understanding of my faith. I never would. My love left, but my faith remained.

I wrote her the following poem to depict to her my reasoning, my feelings, for my decision...

She asked from me, my heart in love,
I gave her my treasures- heart, body and soul.
Unsatisfied was she, requesting my identity
I could only offer her my life, not birth!

I shall not forsake my blessings at birth
a religion of love, in blood poetically wrote.
Equality its emblem, crowned by selfless sacrifice
a religion offering peace, justice to humanity.

A religion not elitist, nor condemning anyone
joining humankind as beloved children of God.
A religion stressing Truth (God), not blind following
spreading rays of happiness, not endless tyranny.

Why do you ask me to relinquish this path?
do you not want to be my partner, equal in all respect?
My "Love", I tell you, my heart I will burn,
shall die as a Kaffir, in God's love, over and over.

Jas. Aug,17, 95.

I sacrificed love for a human, for the love of my Guru. I could not betray my Guru, who holds the wisdom, the light, the key, to ferry me across this worldly ocean, to give me the true nectar bliss of God' love, to bring me closer to my essence of whom I am, my spirit, my soul, for anything or anyone in this world.

Let Go of Fear and Become Unstoppable
Written By Jafree Ozwald and Margot Zaher

Where do feel stopped and blocked in your life because of fear? What dreams would you have manifested if you were fearless and unstoppable? Eliminating fear can open up the doors to an incredible new life because you begin to take action on your dreams and start doing what you truly desire! So really...what is fear? Fear is an emotional response that happens when we imagine or believe that something or someone is going to hurt us.
"Look within, see the Infinite Self. Then there will be an end of the world and its miseries." ~ Ramana Maharshi
Fear provides the valuable service of keeping us safe from physical dangers such as tigers, and jumping in front of a truck. It activates our adrenaline glands so that we can fight or take flight. However, fear becomes harmful when we begin to overreact to situations that have no real danger. For instance, many people fear public speaking, making a new friend or trying out new foods, when neither one of these things are going to kill them. In fact, when you start to look forward to doing the things you want to do yet are afraid of doing, you will see a whole new amazing world manifest before your very eyes.
"See the perfection in the seeming imperfection that seems to be." ~ Lester Levinson

A great acronym for F.E.A.R. is "False Evidence Appearing Real". Fear is an illusionary experience based on an imagined scenario. For instance, when you were a kid did you ever imagine that the "boogie man" was inside your closet or under your bed? Didn't you start feeling scared and begin to strain your ears to hear any strange noises? Your imagination causes you to experience fear. If you confronted your fear by getting out of bed and turning on the light, your fear would magically disappear. The reality behind every situation in life is that you have nothing to fear. You are an immortal infinite soul who cannot die. Who you truly are cannot be threatened by anyone or anything in this world! Once you let this knowledge sink deeply into your body, you will truly be unstoppable in anything you wish to be, do or have manifest.

Here are 4 amazing steps for letting go of fear:
1. Determine how much pain this fear is causing you in your life.
What are you missing out on because of this fear? What will your life look like if you continue to operate out of a place of fear? What negative consequences could occur in 5 years from now if you continue to let fear control you? Write down your answers to these questions.

2. Establish the benefit of overcoming this fear.
What could you create in your life if you overcome this fear? How would your life be better if this fear no longer existed? What would you do, accomplish, or experience if this fear was completely absent? Write down the answers to these questions next to your answers above.

3. Embrace your fear fully.
The key to moving through fear is to face the fear and see the truth that lies beneath it. We've found that people do not manifest negative situations once they have no emotional resistance to it. This technique allows you to transcend your emotional attachment to the fear and free you from it forever! First, we suggest that you do this exercise in a quiet place where you will not be disturbed. Sit back in a chair and close your eyes and start to imagine the worst thing that could happen. Imagine your greatest fear manifested and watch how you react, what you would say, and what the end result actually is. Allow yourself to fully feel all of the feelings associated with the situation and just rest deeply in the very CENTER of that fear for 5 minutes. Remain in the feeling as long as you can until it dissipates. You may want to get some support around this process and do it with a trained professional or good friend if your fear is very old, deep or strong. Once you fully allow yourself to feel the fear, you will start going beyond it. Once the core of your fear is found and relaxed into and through it, you will naturally experience a release and may get a glimpse of soul that you are that never dies.
4. Make a "Fear List" of things you want to do, yet are afraid of doing...and go do them! One by one, go through this list and actually DO one thing on the list each month. You'll experience more success by starting with the fears that are smaller before moving on to bigger ones. Some common fears are fear of public speaking, fear of calling someone to apologize, fear of making a mistake, etc... If you truly want to feel unstoppable for the rest of your life, do one fear on your fear list every month for one year and you'll see an amazing new you is born!
"Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the decision that something else is more important than fear." ~Ambrose Redmoon
transform your life!!

The following suggestions sent in by Jaz Kaur may help to improve your health.

Eating an ounce of nuts each day may significantly reduce the risk of dying from a host of conditions including heart disease and cancer, according to scientists. 
A study of almost 120, 000 men and women in America found that the more nuts they ate, the lower their risk of dying over the following 30 years. 
People who ate nuts tended to be slimmer than those who avoided them, were less likely to smoke and more likely to have healthy habits such as exercising, and eating fruits and vegetables. 
The study did not prove a causal link between eating nuts and longer life, but researchers said their findings backed up previous research into health habits of snacking on them. 
They contain unsaturated fatty acids, high quality protein, fibre vitamins, minerals and photochemical, all which 'may confer cardio protective, anti carcinogenic, and anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties' the researchers said. 
The study, which was sponsored by the International Tree Nut Council as well as US Institutes of Health, used data on diets, lifestyles and health from two large databases between 1980 and 2010.
The researchers were not able to determine which types of nuts were healthiest, but they did show that peanuts which are in fact a type of bean, had a similar effect on death rates as "tree nuts" including walnuts, hazelnuts, cashews, almonds, Brazil nuts, pecans and pistachios.

It's been said that God first separated the salt water from the fresh, made dry land, planted a garden, made animals and  fish.. All before making a human. He made and provided what we'd need before we were born. These are best & more powerful when eaten raw.   We're such slow learners...

God left us a great clue as to what foods help what part of our body!  
 
God's Pharmacy!  Amazing!  
A  sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The  pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye... And YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.  
A  Tomato has four chambers and is red. The  heart has four chambers and is red.  All of the research shows  tomatoes  are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart and blood food. 
Grapes   hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound  heart and blood vitalizing food.  
A  Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums.  Even the wrinkles or folds on  the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen  neuron-transmitters for brain function. 
Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.  
Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don't have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak.  These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body. 
Avocadoes,  Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female - they look just like these organs. Today's research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this?  It takes exactly nine (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).  
Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow.  Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.  
Sweet Potatoes   look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.  
Olives   assist the health and function of the ovaries 
Oranges,  Grapefruits, and other Citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.  
Onions   look like the body's cells. Today's research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. A working companion, Garlic, also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.

 

 

Drop Blood Pressure in 3 Hours

with 250 ML of This All-Natural Juice

Could This Be A Miracle Food?
 
 

Shocking new research shows that the most commonly used drugs for lowering blood pressure actually raise it.   That’s right: the drugs that most hypertension patients count on are actually putting them in harm’s way.
 

And in an ironic twist of fate, another brand new study confirms that one simple, natural remedy can drastically lower your blood pressure in just three hours.
 

Best Meds Elevate Blood Pressure
 

Research shows that the most commonly prescribed drugs for hypertension are making the problem worse. The study – published recently in the   American Journal of Hypertension   – followed the progress of 945 patients over 17 years.
 

The patients were given one of two antihypertensive drugs. One was a calcium channel blocker that lowers blood volume. The other was a beta blocker, or ACE inhibitor. These are often called “R” drugs, which lower levels of renin. Renin is an enzyme secreted by the kidneys and plays a key role in maintaining blood pressure.
 

The study showed that the drugs spiked blood pressure. The highest spikes were found in patients with low renin levels who were taking the R drugs.
 

Researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University say doctors are too quick to use a one-drug-treats-all option. They suggest that they need to be careful when choosing treatments for their patients.
 

“Every clinician knows that there’s a variation in response to antihypertensive treatment,” says study author Michael Alderman , MD. Dr. Alderman is the former president of the American Society of Hypertension. “Some patients will have an elevation in blood pressure.”
 

Until now, this has been blamed on patients not taking their drugs. Other times doctors put it down to random events.
 

“But this data shows that it’s not a random event,” he says. “It’s due to a mismatch between the patients’ renin status and the drug.”
 

Root Remedy Offers Hope
 

The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention say one in three Americans over the age of 20 have hypertension. And over 40 million people wind up in hospital each year with it.
 

According to the American Heart Association, it increases the risk for:
 

·              Heart attack
 

·              Angina
 

·              Stroke
 

·              Kidney failure
 

·              Peripheral artery disease
 

And while doctors are prescribing drugs that make the problem worse, one simple root can make it better.
 

A brand new UK study – published in the American Heart Association journal   Hypertension   – says beetroot juice significantly lowers high blood pressure.
 

The study was conducted by the famous Queen Mary’s William Harvey Research Institute and headed up by Professor Amrita Ahluwalia. It’s the same institute that discovered that aspirin prevents heart attacks and strokes
 

Researchers gave beetroot juice to healthy volunteers. They compared their blood pressure responses and the biochemical changes in their circulation.
 

And what they found was very good news indeed for people with hypertension. Not only does beetroot juice lower blood pressure… it does it quickly.
 

Professor Ahluwalia found that patients lowered their blood pressure within three hours of drinking their daily dose! And the effects last for 24 hours.
 

And the best thing is that the root works best for those who need it most.
 

Researchers found that “the higher the blood pressure, the greater the decrease.”
 

That’s good news for a lot of people. Just like the US , one in three adults in the UK suffer from hypertension. And the Blood Pressure Association says over 30 percent of sufferers don’t even know they have it. That’s too bad: it results in over 350 “preventable” strokes or heart attacks every day.
 

Researchers also tested a second group of patients with daily nitrate tablets. They too were able to lower their blood pressure. It’s possible that the high nitrate content in beetroot is one of the reasons why it’s so effective in lowering blood pressure. And why the research group believe it’s about to become the “next super food.”
 

“Beeting” Out the Competition
 

Beetroot is rich in antioxidants. It contains iron, boron, and folic acid. It also contains betanene, which is why it has such a violent colour. Betanene is a super antioxidant: it’s more potent than polyphenols. Polyphenols are believed to be reason that diets rich in leafy vegetables lower blood pressure.
 

Research member Professor Ben Benjamin says that beetroot absorbs and stores super high levels of nitrate. These are found in soil and our bodies use them in its battle against blood pressure.
 

“When nitrate is present in saliva, bacteria on the tongue converts it into nitrite,” he says. “When the nitrite is swallowed, it’s converted into nitric oxide.”
 

And that is a chemical produced by our blood vessels to help them relax and lower blood pressure.
 

“Increasing the levels of nitrate with beetroot juice increases this effect,” he says.
 

The study also found beetroot juice works like aspirin. It prevents blood clots and protects the lining of blood vessels.
 

True Stories of Success
 

“Currently, treatment for high blood pressure involves a cocktail of aspirin, statins, beta blockers, and angiotensin converting enzyme [ACE] inhibitors,” says Professor Benjamin. “People don’t like taking all the tablets. They don’t feel well and the treatment is lifelong.”
 

But he says beetroot is a healthy and safe alternative to all that.
 

And people are already putting it to the test.
 

Sixty-year-old David Kelsall, from Stoke-on-Trent , England , was amazed by the results.
 

“I discovered my blood pressure was high when my doctor was testing for something else,” he says. “It was not life-threatening but I was anxious to do something about it.”
 

He was considering drugs when he read the reports about beetroot juice.
 

“I drank three bottles of it a week,” he says. “Less than four weeks [later], my blood pressure had already leveled out. Now, a few months later, it is under control and normal. I am still drinking the juice, and I’m going to continue doing so. It may not help everyone, but it’s helped me.”
 

Getting Beetroot into Your Diet
 

Beetroot has a medium glycemic index score of 64… but this doesn’t need to be a problem. That’s because you only need to have a very small amount of beetroot juice to lower your blood pressure.
 

“We found that only a small amount of juice is needed – just 250ml – to have this effect,” says Professor Ahluwalia.
 

Dr. Al Sears says beetroot is better at beating blood pressure problems than any drug. Here is one simple recipe that he suggests for getting it into your diet.
 

To make this recipe simply take:
 

·              two raw organic carrots;
 

·              three organic celery sticks;
 

·              one-half of an organic cucumber; and
 

·              one organic beetroot (also known simply as a beet).
 

Chop each of the vegetables up.
 

Drop ‘em in your juicer.
 

Blend and drink. It’s as simple as that!

 

 

AMAZING BANANAS!

 

Never, put your banana in the refrigerator!!!

After reading this, you'll never look at a banana in the same way again.
Bananas contain three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.

Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes.
 

But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet. Depression: According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

PMS:
Forget the pills - eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains   regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

Anemia:
High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

Blood Pressure:
This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure. So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit's ability to   reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.

Brain Power: 200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school (England) were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.

Constipation:
High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.

Hangovers:
One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover   is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.

Heartburn:
Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.
Morning Sickness:
Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.

Mosquito bites:
Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.
Nerves:
Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.

Overweight and at work? Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate   and chips. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.

Ulcers:
The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

Temperature control:
Many other cultures see bananas as a "cooling" fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand , for example, pregnant women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD):
Bananas can help SAD sufferers because they contain the natural mood enhancer tryptophan.

Smoking &Tobacco Use:
Bananas can also help people trying to give up smoking. The B6, B12 they contain, as well as the potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal.

Stress:
Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat , sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your body's water balance. When we are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing our potassium levels. These can be rebalanced with the help of a high-potassium banana snack.

Strokes:
According to research in The New England Journal of Medicine, eating bananas as part of a regular diet can cut the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%!

Warts:
Those keen on natural alternatives swear that if you want to kill off a wart, take a piece of banana skin and place it on the wart, with the yellow side out. Carefully hold the skin in place with a plaster or surgical tape!
So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has four times the protein, twice the
carbohydrate, three times the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, "A banana a day keeps the doctor away!" PASS IT ON TO YOUR FRIENDS
PS: Bananas must be the reason monkeys are so happy all the time! I will add one here; want a quick shine on our shoes?? Take the INSIDE of the banana skin, and rub directly on the shoe...polish with dry cloth. Amazing fruit
!!!

 

Pass The Butter ... Please.


This is interesting . .. .


Margarine was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys. When it killed the turkeys, the people who had put all the money into the research wanted a payback so they put their heads together to figure out what to do with this product to get their money back.
It was a white substance with no food appeal so they added the yellow colouring and sold it to people to use in place of butter. How do you like it? They have come out with some clever new flavorings....
DO YOU KNOW.. The difference between margarine and butter?

Read on to the end...gets very interesting!

Both have the same amount of calories.
Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8 grams; compared to 5 grams for margarine.

Eating margarine
can increase heart disease in women by 53% over eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent Harvard Medical Study.

Eating butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in other foods.
Butter has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a few and only because they are added!
Butter tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavours of other foods.
Butter has been around for centuries where margarine has been around for less than 100 years.

And now, for Margarine..

Very High in Trans fatty acids.
Triples risk of coronary heart disease ...
Increases total cholesterol
and LDL (this is the bad cholesterol) and lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good cholesterol)
Increases the risk of cancers up to five times..
Lowers quality of breast milk.
Decreases immune response.
Decreases insulin response.
And here's the most disturbing fact.... HERE IS THE PART THAT IS VERY INTERESTING!
Margarine is but
ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC... and shares 27 ingredients with PAINT
These facts alone were enough to have me avoiding margarine for life and anything else that is hydrogenated (this means hydrogen is added, changing the molecular structure of the substance).

You can try this yourself:
Purchase a tub of margarine and leave it open in your garage or shaded area. Within a couple of days you will notice a couple of things:
* no flies, not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it (that should tell you something)
* it does not rot or smell differently because it has no nutritional value ; nothing will grow on it. Even those teeny weenie microorganisms will not a find a home to grow. Why? Because it is nearly plastic
. Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?

Share This With Your Friends.....(If you want to butter them up')!

Pass the BUTTER PLEASE.


 

Aaaah, I love these summer months.
So on my long hike on Saturday, I found myself wanting to take in as much fresh air as I could. But I had a hard time on the difficult uphill section--I was out of breath and gasping for air.  


Then I remembered the advice of my good friend, Dr. John Douillard, who said that when you breathe in and out through your mouth you’re exhausting and aging yourself. Years ago he taught me a different way to breathe that increases energy, reverses aging, and promotes greater happiness and well-being.


John called it “Darth Vader” breathing, because when you’re doing it right, you sound just like the Star Wars character. In yoga circles it’s called “Ocean Breath” (it also sounds like the ocean) or ujjayi pranayama, which translates as “the breath that gives victory over fear.” I call it bliss breathing, because it always makes me feel joyful.


John recommends breathing this way while meditating, sitting at your desk, or exercising, so I tried it during my hike. I quickly noticed I was no longer out of breath, and I was feeling more energy—even though I was trudging up a steep hill. Within minutes, I felt a bliss that lasted throughout the day. It worked!


Modern scientific studies are now catching up with ancient wisdom showing that breathing properly can make us feel good—fast. Darth Vader breathing creates a healing response in the body. As the lungs absorb more oxygen, circulation and metabolism improve. This increases your overall life energy.


So anytime you’re feeling down or sluggish, try Darth Vader breathing. It’s easy but powerful. Here’s how:


1. Start by inhaling and exhaling through your mouth, pulling the air from the back of the throat to make it sound like Darth Vader. You will feel the back of the throat slightly constricting. (You can also imagine you’re fogging up a pair of glasses.)


2. Once you get the hang of the sound, close your mouth, and continue inhaling and exhaling in the same way. Take slow and deep breaths. When you’re doing it correctly, you’ll hear the breath coming in and going out. This is the sound people make right before they go to sleep, when they are very relaxed.


Whether you’re on a wonderful summer hike (or winter hike for those in the southern hemisphere), exercising at your gym, or just sitting at home or work, practice breathing your way to greater happiness, love, and bliss!


With love for no reason and every reason,

 

 

Asparagus -- Who knew ?

 

    This is from a friend 
     My Mom had been taking the full-stalk canned style
     Asparagus that she pureed and she took 4 tablespoons in
     The morning and 4 tablespoons later in the day. She did
     This for over a month. She is on chemo pills for Stage 3
     Lung cancer in the pleural area and her cancer cell
     Count went from 386 down to 125 as of this past week.
     Her oncologist said she does not need to see him for 3
     Months.
 
                 THE ARTICLE:                 

                 Several years ago, I had a man seeking asparagus for a
                 Friend who had cancer. He gave me a photocopied copy 

                 Of an article, entitled, Asparagus for cancer 'printed in
                 Cancer News Journal, December 1979. I will share it
                 Here, just as it was shared with me: I am a

                 Biochemist, and have specialized in the relation of diet
                 To health or over 50 years. Several years ago, I learned
                 Of the discovery of Richard R. Vensal, D.D.S that
                 Asparagus might cure cancer. Since then, I have worked
                 With him on his project We have accumulated a number
                 Of favorable case histories. Here are a few examples:
 

Case No. 1, A man with an almost hopeless case
                 Of Hodgkin's disease (cancer of the lymph glands) who
                 Was completely incapacitated. Within 1 year of starting
                 The asparagus therapy, his doctors were unable to
                 Detect any signs of cancer, and he was back on a
                 Schedule of strenuous exercise..
Case No. 2, a successful businessman 68 years old
                 Who suffered from cancer of the bladder for 16 years.
                 After years of medical treatments, including radiation
                 Without improvement, he went on asparagus. Within 3
                 Months, examinations revealed that his bladder tumour
                 Had disappeared and that his kidneys were normal.
 
Case No. 3, a man who had lung cancer. On March 5th 1971, he

                 Was put on the operating table where they found
                 Lung cancer so widely spread that it was inoperable.

                 The surgeon sewed him up and declared his case
                 Hopeless. On April 5th he heard about the Asparagus
                 Therapy and immediately started taking it By August,
                 x-ray pictures revealed that all signs of the cancer had
                 Disappeared..
                 He is back at his regular business routine.
 
Case No. 4, a woman who was troubled for a number of
                 Years with skin cancer. She finally developed different
                 Skin cancers which were diagnosed by the acting
                 Specialist as advanced. Within 3 months after starting
                 On asparagus, her skin specialist said that her skin
                 Looked fine and no more skin lesions. This woman
                 Reported that the asparagus therapy also cured her
                 Kidney disease, which started in 1949. She had over 10
                 Operations for kidney stones, and was receiving
                 Government disability payments for an inoperable,
                 Terminal, kidney condition. She attributes the cure of
                 This kidney trouble entirely to the asparagus.
 
                 I was not surprised at this result, as `The elements of
                 Materia medica', edited in1854 by a Professor at the
                 University of Pennsylvania , stated that asparagus was
                 Used as a popular remedy for kidney stones. He even
                 Referred to experiments, in 1739, on the power of
                 Asparagus in dissolving stones. Note the dates!
                 We would have other case histories but the medical
                 Establishment has interfered with our obtaining some

                 Of the records. I am therefore appealing to readers to
                 Spread this good news and help us to gather a large
                 Number of case histories that will overwhelm the

                 Medical skeptics about this unbelievably simple and
                 Natural remedy.
 

          For the treatment, asparagus should be cooked 
                 Before using, and therefore canned asparagus is just
                 As good as fresh. I have corresponded with the two
                 Leading canners of asparagus, Giant and Stokely, and I
                 Am satisfied that these brands contain no pesticides or
                 Preservatives.
                 Place the cooked asparagus in a blender and liquefy to
                 Make a puree, and store in the refrigerator. Give the
                 Patient 4 full tablespoons twice daily, morning and
                 Evening. Patients usually show some improvement in

                 2-4 weeks. It can be diluted with water and used as a
                 Cold or hot drink. This suggested dosage is based on
                 Present experience, but certainly larger amounts can do
                 No harm and may be needed in some cases. As a

                 Biochemist I am convinced of the old saying that `what
                 Cures can prevent.' Based on this theory, my wife and I
                 Have been using asparagus puree as a beverage with
                 Our meals. We take 2 tablespoons diluted in water to
                 Suit our taste with breakfast and with dinner. I take
                 Mine hot and my wife prefers hers cold For years we
                 Have made it a practice to have blood surveys taken as
                 Part of our regular checkups. The last blood survey,
                 Taken by a medical doctor who specializes in the
                 Nutritional approach to health, showed substantial
                 Improvements in all categories over the last one, and
                 We can attribute these improvements to nothing but
                 the asparagus drink. 
                 As a biochemist, I have made an extensive study of all
                 aspects of cancer, and all of the proposed cures. As a
                 result, I am convinced that asparagus fits in better
                 with the latest theories about cancer.
 
                 Asparagus contains a good supply of protein called
                 histones, which are believed to be active in controlling
                 cell growth.. For that reason, I believe asparagus can
                 be said to contain a substance that I call cell growth
                 normalizer. That accounts for its action on cancer and
                 in acting as a general body tonic. In any event,
                 regardless of theory, asparagus used as we suggest, is

                 a harmless substance. The FDA cannot prevent you
                 from using it and it may do you much good. It has
                 been reported by the US National Cancer Institute, that
                 asparagus is the highest tested food containing
                 glutathione, which is considered one of the body's

                 most potent anticarcinogens and antioxidants.
 

 

 
The Surprising Benefits of Lemon 
 
Institute of Health Sciences, 819 N. L.L.C. Charles Street Baltimore , MD 1201.
 
 
This is the latest in medicine, effective for cancer!
 
Benefits of lemon.
 
Lemon (Citrus)
is a miraculous product to 
kill cancer cells.
 
It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy
 
Why do we not know about that?
Because there are laboratories interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge profits.
 
You can now help a friend in need by letting him know that lemon juice is beneficial in preventing the disease.
Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy.
 
If you can, plant a lemon tree in your garden or patio.
How many people die while this is a closely guarded secret so as not to jeopardize the beneficial multimillionaires large corporations?
 
As you know, the lemon tree is down, does not occupy much space and is known for its varieties of lemons and limes.
 
You can eat the fruit in different ways:
you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries
It is credited with many virtues,
but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors.
 
This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types.
Some say it is

it regulates blood pressure which is too high and an antidepressant, combats stress and nervous disorders
 
 
The source of this information is fascinating:
it comes from one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970,
the extracts revealed that:
It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers,
including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas ...
 
The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin,
a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells.
 
And what is even more astonishing:

ROCK SALT.....vs. HIGH BP


I thought I would share this article as it is very informative.

PLEASE SHARE, IT MAY HELP SOMEONE

Rock Salt or Sea Salt.

STRESS RELIEF. Is salt bad for hypertensive?

What is bad for hypertension is iodized salt, which is a fake salt. It
is made up of only 3 synthetic chemicals, sodium, chloride, iodine. It
does not melt in water (glistens like diamonds), does NOT melt in the
body, does not melt in the kidneys, gives kidney stones, and raises
blood pressure. However, it is the salt favoured by the synthetic
drug-based doctors who say it is very clean and sanitary, pointing to
how white it is and how it glistens like   diamonds. The fake salt is
man-made in a factory.

The true salt, which comes from the sea and dried under the sun and
commonly called rock salt, has 72 natural minerals including natural
sodium, chloride, iodine. It melts in water, melts in your body, melts
in the kidneys, do not give kidney stones, and best of all brings down
blood pressure and stops/prevents muscle cramps, numbness, tingling.

If you get muscle cramps in the lower legs at night, just take 1/2
teaspoon of rock salt and a glass of water, and the cramps with its
horrific pain will be gone in 5 minutes.

The highest BP that came my way was in a woman who had a BP of 240/140
and came to my house at 10:30 pm on what she said was a matter of
"life and death" because the high BP was already giving her a crushing
headache, especially the back of her head. She could not walk up the 6
shallow steps to my porch. Two men had to help her, one on each side,
in addition to the cane that she needed to prop herself up.

I muscle tested her and found that underlying her BP of 240/140 and
the crushing pain in the head, her body's water content was only 6%
(normal is 75%), salt content was zero, potassium was 96% deficient,
and cardiac output (blood flow from the heart) was only 40% (normal is
100%). So the blood supply to the head was 60% deficient.


I gave her one 6" long green sili (hot pepper), 1 raw ripe saba
banana, 1/2 teaspoon of rock salt and 3 8-oz glasses of tap water.
The sili was to normalize cardiac output and shoot blood to the head, the
saba banana was for the potassium deficiency and to have food in the
stomach because pepper will give a stomach ache if the stomach is
empty, and the rock salt and the water were the first aid for her
severe dehydration which was causing her arteries to be dry and stiff
and her blood to be thick and sticky, because they were dehydrated.

After 5 minutes, she said, "The pain in my head is gone." We took her
BP, it was 115/75, and cardiac output was up to 100%.

She walked out of the house to her car without the men helping her and
without the cane.

She has been taking 2.5 teaspoons of rock salt, 15 glasses of water, 6
saba bananas and 3 of the long pepper daily since then (beginning
September 2009), and her BP and cardiac output have been normal since
then.

Two months later, in November, at a PCAM round table forum on
hypertension in Club Filipino, she gave her testimony, followed by her
brother who said that she grew 2", because the salt and the water had
refilled her compressed disc spaces in her vertebral column. The disc
spaces had become compressed because they had become dehydrated since
the fluid filling up these discs are 95% water.

Why salt? Because without salt the body cannot retain water no matter
how much water is drunk. You will still be dehydrated because you will
just keep urinating and sweating the water out.

This is not an isolated case. When BP is rising high but there is
little or no headache but there is stiffness of shoulder and neck
muscles, all you need to normalize the BP and remove the stiffness and
the pain in 5 minutes is 1/2 teaspoon of rock salt and 3 glasses of
water. If there is crushing pain in the head, it means blood supply to
the head is lacking, and you will need the sili to normalize it and
shoot blood to the head and remove the extreme pain.

We all think eating fruit means just buying fruit, cutting it up and popping it into our mouths. It's not that easy. It's important to know how and when to eat fruit.

What's the correct way to eat fruit?

IT MEANS NOT EATING FRUIT AFTER A MEAL! FRUIT SHOULD BE EATEN ON AN EMPTY STOMACH.


Eating fruit like that plays a major role in detoxifying your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities..

FRUIT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FOOD.

Let's say you eat two slices of bread, then a slice of fruit. The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but it's prevented from doing so.

In the meantime, the whole meal rots and ferments, and turns to acid. The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach, and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil.

Eat your fruit on an empty stomach, or before your meal! You've heard people complain: Every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian my stomach bloats, when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet, etc. This will not happen if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach. Fruit mixes with the putrefying other food and produces gas. Hence, you bloat!


Graying hair, balding, nervous outburst, and dark circles under the eyes - all of these will NOT happen if you eat fruit on an empty stomach.

There's no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic, because all fruit becomes alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this matter. If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruit, you have the Secret of Beauty, Longevity, Health, Energy, Happiness and normal weight.
When you need to drink fruit juice drink only freshfruit juice, NOT from the cans. Don't drink juice that has been heated. Don't eat cooked fruit; you don't get the nutrients at all. You get  only the taste... Cooking destroys all of the vitamins.


Eating a whole fruit is etter than drinking the juice. If you should drink the juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it. You can go on a 3-day fruit-fast to cleanse your body. Eat fruit and drink fruit juice for just 3 days, and you will be surprised when your friends say how radiant you look!


KIWI:
Tiny but mighty, and a good source of potassium, magnesium, vitamin E & fibre. Its vitamin C content is twice that of an orange!

AN  APPLE
a day keeps the doctor away? Although an apple has a low vitamin C content, it has antioxidants & flavorous which enhances the activity of vitamin C, thereby helping to lower the risk of colon cancer, heart attack & stroke.

STRAWBERRY:
Protective Fruit. Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits & protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging free radicals.

EATING 2 - 4 ORANGES
oranges a day may help keep colds away, lower cholesterol, prevent & dissolve kidney stones, and reduce the risk of colon cancer.

WATERMELON:
Coolest thirst quencher. Composed of 92% water, it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which helps boost our immune system. Also a key source of lycopene, the cancer-fighting oxidant. Also found in watermelon: Vitamin C & Potassium..

GUAVA & PAPAYA:
Top awards for vitamin C. They are the clear winners for their high vitamin C content. Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation. Papaya is rich in carotene, good for your eyes..

Drinking Cold water after a meal = Cancer!

Can u believe this? For those who like to drink cold water, this applies to you. It's nice to have a cold drink after a meal, however, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you've just consumed, which
slows digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer.. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal
.

 

 

The Organs of your body have their sensory touches at the bottom of your foot, if you massage these points you will find relief from aches and pains as you can see the heart is on the left foot.

Drink Water and Stay healthy and Active.

This makes sense .. The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals ...not cold water. Maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating!!! Nothing to lose, everything to gain...

For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you.

It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed . It will slow down the digestion.
Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

A serious note about heart attacks: Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting.
Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line.

You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack..

Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms.

60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up.

Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive...

Here are 3 ways to get more energy, naturally.

1) Exercise

It doesn't matter what time you exercise, just be consistent. Fit
it in based on your schedule and personality. If you have to do it
first thing when you wake up, just do it. Don't even let yourself
think about it. Just get started.

A lot of people think too much about their plan. That's why
Turbulence Training works for so many people...they don't have to
think, they just follow the workouts and get done fast.

Focus on intense strength training for 20 minutes followed by a
brief interval training session to boost your metabolism all day
long.

Exercise is a drug. Like caffeine and nicotine, exercise causes the
release of many chemicals into your blood, resulting in mental
stimulation and an improved sense of overall well-being. Exercise
just makes you feel good.

2) Eat smaller, more frequent meals.

Skip the cycle of starving and feasting characterized by no
breakfast, a high-carbohydrate lunch, and a huge dinner. Instead,
eat breakfast and then continue to eat every 3 hours for the rest
of the day.

Research shows that a high-fiber breakfast helps control appetite
and increases mental alertness all morning, and improves your
ability to process information.

Do not skip breakfast and rely on a coffee to get you through the
day. Got no time? C'mon! You're an adult, you can get up 10 minutes
earlier to have a protein shake, some almonds, and an apple. You're
not in high school anymore. No excuses!

3) Eat only whole, natural foods, such as fruits, vegetables,
organic proteins, raw nuts (not roasted in oil), Green Tea, water.

Trying to run on processed foods is a recipe for an energetic
disaster. Stick to whole, natural foods during the day, snacking
rather than binging on big meals, and you'll never feel like dozing
off.

If a food is from a bag or a box, it doesn't deserve a place in your
nutrition plan. Avoid all added sugars. Surely, you're already
sweet enough!

 

Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body: 2 glasses of water after waking up - helps activate internal organs
1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion
1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure
1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack

 

Eggplant Stars in Unusual Blood Pressure Remedy

"Have you ever heard of this remedy for high blood pressure? Wash but don't peel a medium eggplant. Dice it into 1-inch cubes.

"Place the cubes in a glass gallon jug and cover the eggplant with distilled water. Put the jug in the fridge for four days.

"Drink one ounce of the water per day, taking your blood pressure daily. After a week or so, the eggplant will begin to disintegrate; discard the cubes but keep drinking the ounce of water daily.

"Be sure to check your blood pressure, as it may begin to drop dramatically. Once your blood pressure is at a good level, you will need to experiment to determine how often to drink the eggplant water. It may be every other day or less often."
