Quick Fixes – Some Natural Remedies

Arthritis: 1 t. Turmeric, 1 t. unflavoured gelatin, 2 . honey, and 1-2 c. Warm milk before bed. Add a pinch of cinnamon or ginger for a better flavour.

Brain Health: Eat eggs for their choline, 2 T. Of Coconut Oil daily for their triglycerides, and drink clean water (reverse osmosis or distilled). That is all your brain is made of, and without causes the brain to be malnourished.

Bruises: Bite a Vitamin E capsule or two, and apply the contents to the bruise, then swallow the capsule.

Blood Sugar: Work a teaspoon of cinnamon into your diet daily or mix with honey into hot water before bed.

Colds: 1 big pinches of Ajwain + 2 tablets of Siberian Ginsing + 1 Zinc 3 x daily, and all the chewable Vitamin C you want. Drink herbal teas: Hibiscus for Vitamin C, Licorice Root tea for cough, Marshmallow Root for sore chest, and Bromelein supplements to break down mucous.

Dairy products will only nourish you if the butterfat is well over 3%. The proteins must have available calcium to be processed, and the fat carries the calcium and helps to get it into the bloodstream. Without the fat, the proteins, which demand calcium, strip it from the bones and teeth. A fetus is brutal in its demand for calcium. So drink less milk if you are concerned about fat and animal proteins, but when you do, use light cream at 5% BF (butterfat). Low-fat dairy products do more harm than good, and have added stabilizers and gums added to them.

Depression: 20 IU Vitamin D3 per lb., with
2.5 mg Magnesium Citrate per lb. Of body weight, daily. Use Magnesium Oil.

Distilled Water will help with many health problems and flush out kidney and liver channels by breaking down insoluble mineral deposits. You do not need to add minerals to the water, as soluble minerals are absorbed by plants, thus you get them from the foods you eat, not water.

Earache: Mash a clove of garlic in 2 t. Olive oil. Wait 10 minutes before straining into a drop bottle. Put a few drops into affected ear and wad with some cotton. Do this 2 x daily until ear is well.

Fats should only be consumed when as close to nature as possible. Genetically modified oils such as corn, soy, and canola are worse for your health than lard. Use cold-pressed virgin oils and low heat when cooking. Clear deodorized cooking oils are also bad as the molecules have been fractured by heat and chemicals, so they enter the bloodstream as free radicals, and exhaust the immune system. Cook with butter, coconut oil, and yellow extra-virgin olive oil as often as possible. Save the fried chicken for a rare treat.

Flu Buster
1 lemon or lime, juiced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 t. Ginger, minced
2 t. Raw honey
1/8 – 1/4 t. Cayenne
2 c. Water

Make this up 2 or 3 times a day at the onset of a cold or Flu, until well.Fatigue: Natural B12 (methylcobalamine) sublingual at 3,000 mcg daily

Memory Fog & Loss: 1 T. Coconut Oil with 10 mg; Lithium Orotate daily against Alzheimer’s.

Insomnia: 3 capsules of flax seed oil (or 3 T. Ground daily), with warm milk and honey at bedtime.

Magnesium Oil: 2 T. Epson Salts In 3 T. Boiling water; stir until dissolved. Pour into glass bottle. Massage 1/2 t. On tummy at bedtime to help calm kicking legs, anxiety, etc.

Tremors: Try using Magnesium Oil, Vitamin D3 therapy as above, and a good teaspoon of liquid lecithin daily, which will coat the myalin sheath around the spinal nerves.

Wounds: Make a cup of comfrey tea, strain, and dip a clean washcloth or handkerchief in the tea. Wring it out and apply to clean wound or bruises. If you need an ointment, raw honey is excellent.

Interesting Notes on Asberger’s Syndrome

We all know someone who is seemingly cold and distant, but seem to think everything is fine; I certainly have this in my family.

From a very busy girl sometimes blogging at
Shucky’s Kitchen
Nelsie’s Cupboard, and
Parkdale Knifty Knitters!

From, some of the symptoms that may be present are:

  • Lack of social awareness;
  • Lack of interest in socializing/making friends;
  • Difficulty making and sustaining friendships;
  • Inability to infer the thoughts, feelings, or emotions of others;
  • Either gazing too intently or avoiding eye contact;
  • Lack of changing facial expression, or use of exaggerated facial expressions;
  • Lack of use or comprehension of gestures;
  • Inability to perceive nonverbal cues or communications;
  • Failure to respect interpersonal boundaries;
  • Unusually sensitive to noises, touch, odors, tastes, or visual stimuli;
  • Inflexibility and over-adherence to or dependence on routines; and
  • Stereotypical and repetitive motor patterns such as hand flapping or arm waving.
  • Language may be interpreted literally, and difficulties can arise with interpreting language in a specific context.
  • There are difficulties with understanding the subtle use of language, such as irony or sarcasm.

For a great look at men who may have Asberger traits, read this fascinating article:

How Are You Feeling?

You or someone you love, may appreciate some of the following information…

Consider these for Fibromyalgia and other auto immune diseases (migraine, arthritis, etc.):

If you don’t get several hours of sunlight daily, or if you are depressed, you probably have a Vitamin D3 deficiency. Your physician will more than likely not have a clue as to the proper dosage rates, which are 2.5 mg Magnesium Citrate + 20 IU Vitamin D3 (per lb. Body Weight) daily. Vitamin D3 is a hormone we create when we get enough sunlight, and it underlies the production of the other hormones our body needs to maintain its balance; for example, under stress your adrenals get exhausted producing cortisol, and needs that D3 to help. The Magnesium acts as a carrier to the cells.

B12 deficiency robs people of energy and has similar symptoms to low thyroid. The B12 injections are made with synthetic chemicals and is inferior, but you can get a superior biological form called Methylcobalamine. This comes as a dissolving tablet taken sublingually (under the tongue), but the central molecule (think Cobalt) is too large to go through the oral membranes easily. However, it will go through nasal membranes, but if you cannot find the nasal gel form, you can make your own. An adult will usually need 3,000 mcg daily. Take a tablet and add a drop of water to it. Press this into a paste and smear it inside your nose. It is not that bad, but I do it before bedtime rather than in the morning.

Go off all forms of gluten for one week, and then have a slice of bread. Note how you feel 12-18 hours later if no digestive problems (like pain or bloating, etc.) have cropped up. If you feel still and achy, the gluten is probably inflaming your connective tissues, especially if you are lactose-intolerant.

A friend takes a spoonful of coconut oil and 2 cayenne capsules in the mornings to boost his energy. An older gentleman, he has more energy than the younger men with whom he plays hockey. I have to agree, when I do this, I do have much more energy.

For problems sleeping, you can now get good formulations of 5-HTP and Melatonin, precursors to seratonin. Take this the same time every night about 30 minutes before bedtime, and don’t drink any form of caffeine after 3:00 p.m. Your circadian rhythms should reset themselves in a few days. If the problem persists, you can order Leritone SR on line from NutriSante in Quebec. This is made from a long chain fatty acid, which was like a miracle for me. I had not been able to read or retain anything for a few years when I discovered this, and within a few days I was sleeping instead of restless dozing, and reading again and retaining the information. I only needed to take it for a few months. Ten years later, I want to revisit this.

Ginko Biloba will stimulate the brain if you have brain fog and memory problems. It can overstimulate the brain, so do be attentive when you use it.

Coconut Oil turns into energy very easily. It is mostly comprised of medium-chain triglycerides, a positive type of fat that our brains need, and if we eat low-fat diets, may be starving for. In fact, there is some evidence that 3 tsp. Daily may help with Alzheimer’s. People in the Philippines apply it topically for backaches, and because it is a ‘drying’ oil, it is soothing on the skin without promoting the over-production of sebum. Non-comedogenic, it is also used in face and body creams for people with skin problems; in acne, it actually helps to dissolve the matter in clogged pores.

Finally, Lithium Orotate in very small dosages (10 mg. Of elemental Lithium) have shown to act as a prophylactic against Alzheimer’s Disease. My mother died of this, and her mother had it, so I am taking it. Your pharmacist probably won’t know anything about it. It is available through You won’t feel anything different though you may feel a little calmer than usual, as if you had taken a cup of chamomile tea (Lithium Salts were used to calm angry people down in the olden days, and are still used with some severe personality disorders, but in dosages between 700 and 1,600 mg.).

Other helps from Ayurvedic medicine:

  • 1 tsp. Cumin will gently boost your metabolism if you are trying to lose weight.
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon helps to keep blood sugar level.
  • 1 tsp. Gelatin in water or juice will help with arthritic joints
  • 1 tsp. Tumeric is a natural anti-inflammatory that will not upset your stomach

Investigate the following yourself:

  • Cannabis Oil may help with otherwise uncontrollable pain and depression.
  • Hemp and Cannabis oils seem to be able to lock cancer cells from replicating.
  • Fresh flaxseed oil has be found by some researchers to be as affective in the treatment of certain breast cancers as radiation.
  • Apple seeds have a similar action on cancer cells as apricot kernels, but are less toxic.

If you find improvement, this is confirmation of what your body needs, not the dosage on the side of the bottle. Remember, your physician has little more understanding of nutrition than the man on the street, and may have only taken one semester of pharmacology in med school. The pharmaceutical companies grab med school drop-outs to train as sales personnel, so they speak with physicians as equals, who rely on them for biased information rather than on their own reading of published research. And rarely will you find a physician who follows the latest in naturopathic research. The AMA/CMA decries naturopathic approaches as non-scientific, but the truth is, pharmacological research cannot achieve standardized ‘scientific’ findings either, which is why advertising states ‘may cause … (negative) symptoms including death.

So I hope you will consider trying some of these more natural approaches.

If you did not appreciate receiving this, please let me know. I am not out to irritate anyone!

A Very Cool Video on the Rapture

Don’t believe in the Rapture? Cool…just delete this! But if you do, or you just want to know more about it, read on.

As some of you know, a lot of the TV I watch is on YouTube, and is usually in the form of teaching. It’s not all spiritual, but most of it is. I am interested in paleo-Hebrew because it’s more fun than Sudoku and blows my mind. I like listening to lessons on Torah, to understand better what Jesus was taught. But my favourite teachings are on the prophetic, largely because of a dream I had in the late 60’s that has stayed with me ever since.

Perry Stone is one of my favourite pastors who speaks on the prophetic (others being the brilliant Chuck Missler, a pastor and retired government consultant on encryption technologies who has helped us understand the immensity of the genius behind Scripture; J.D. Faraq who, as a Palestinian Christian Pastor, has interpreted current events in the Middle East against Scripture, and Jonathan Cahn, a brilliant messianic rabbi who is warning America, a country that has been blessed to be a help and support to Israel, to wake up and remain faithful before it is too late).

Sudden Destruction At The Pre-Tribulation Rapture

Perry has really surpassed himself this time. What has excited me is, he has attempted to provide a scientific explanation, based on scriptural references, as to how the Rapture could happen, explaining Greek words and what terms like ‘thunder’ meant in Jesus’s day. But he doesn’t stop there…he has visuals to make it easier for non-scientific types to understand as he speaks. He gets into the darkness that keeps being mentioned, and how that could easily happen. (Evangelicals into the prophetic are taught about the Rapture, whereas Catholics may be taught about the Three Days Of Darkness; Perry’s teaching tied this mystery together for me after 25 years). And he believes that rather than us floating up in the air like ghosts in bright daylight, those left behind may not know we are gone – and why. Plus he gives us the possible identity of the Foolish Virgins. This video had me on the edge of my seat.

If you have not done so already, please prayerfully consider watching these videos. They are better than anything The X Files could come up with.

Hacksaw Ridge

Hi…Tomorrow evening I am planning to go see this film based on the true story of a WWII hero who fought for his country without picking up a gun. It has a 9.2 rating, if that would mean anything to you. It had my pastor weeping just to talk about it.

So if you would like to join me tomorrow night, please get in touch (Tuesday is cheap night). We could meet here or at Orion’s Gate…the show starts at 6:55.

Please wear your poppy in remembrance of those who were willing to lay down their lives for you.

Video: The Real Face Of Jesus

The Real Face Of Jesus

Taking the negative image and using forensic technology, the face on The Shroud has been forensically reconstructed into a 3-dimensional image. It looks remarkably like the face of Jesus as painted by 8-year-old child prodigy Akiane Kramarik. Colton Burpo, the little boy who had the NDE experience in Heaven Is For Real, told his father the pictures he showed him depicting Jesus were not what He really looked like until he saw the painting by Akiane (who came from a secular family, though that has since changed!). It is interesting that many people who shared their NDE experiences at the blog, Shroud Story, confirm this was what the Jesus they met looked like. Given the face was distorted from the beating He received, it is not difficult to see that without the swelling and shorter hair, the face could be the same. Even without pain and suffering, we look better on some days than on others . And keep in mind that His appearance changed after the Resurrection somehow, because even His own disciples did not recognize Him.

The Real Face Of Jesus is on YouTube. I am more than willing to share a DVD with you if you can’t find it…just please let me know. And for more fun reads, I can give you the names of some exciting books for delving more deeply into the prophetic, and I promise you, they are well written, appeal to the educated and intelligent, while adhering to Scripture.

In Time For American Thanksgiving

In time for American Thanksgiving and Christmas…

My place is too small for an open house, so I am sending you a recipe for two types of savory shortbread, at least one of which you would have enjoyed had ever been to one of my Christmas open houses back in the day.

If you don’t happen to cook, find someone who can…these tasty snacks would be worth it to a cheese lover.

If you are a vegetarian, you will want a copy of Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie, so rich and delish that I had to take it to a friend’s annual Thanksgiving dinner, to be served with the turkey and fixings. Just let me know.

And if you don’t want to get an occasional recipe from me, please let me know…I will take you off my list!

Anthropomorphism can be a useful ploy with which to prey upon unsuspecting humans, as these clever turkeys quickly learned.
