2024:

July 8, 2024: Carob power tastes like chocolate cocoa powder and is a great alternative for people who can't eat chocolate because of Glaucoma, shingles, herpes or other health issues.

Carob offers several health benefits:

1. Digestive health: Carob is rich in fiber, which aids digestion, prevents constipation, and may help treat diarrhea due to its tannins that have a drying effect on the digestive tract.

2. Blood sugar control: Carob has a low glycemic index and may help regulate blood sugar levels, making it beneficial for people with diabetes.

3. Heart health: The fiber and antioxidants in carob may help lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease.

4. Weight management: Carob's fiber content can increase satiety and potentially aid in weight loss by controlling the secretion of ghrelin, the hunger hormone.

5. Nutrient-rich: Carob is a good source of calcium, potassium, magnesium, and B vitamins.

6. Antioxidant properties: Carob contains polyphenols that act as antioxidants, protecting cells from free radical damage.

7. Caffeine-free alternative: Carob can be used as a chocolate substitute for those looking to avoid caffeine.

Carob has been shown to have immune-modulating effects due to compounds like gallic acid and D-pinitol.

Gallic acid and D-pinitol, both found in carob, have demonstrated effects on viruses and immune cells:

Gallic acid shows antiviral properties against several viruses:

1. It can inhibit HIV-1 integrase, transcriptase, and protease dimerization.

2. It inhibits hepatitis C virus (HCV) attachment, penetration, replication, and serine protease.

3. Gallic acid interferes with herpes simplex virus (HSV) types 1 and 2 attachment and penetration.

4. It disrupts Haemophilus influenzae A and B particles.

Regarding immune cells, gallic acid is involved in various signaling pathways that regulate biological functions, including pro- and anti-inflammatory pathways. This suggests it may influence T cell activity.

D-pinitol, another compound found in carob, has shown immune-modulating effects:

1. It demonstrates biological control mechanisms against powdery mildew in plants, suggesting potential antimicrobial properties.

2. D-pinitol has been reported to have protective effects against various diseases, which may involve modulation of immune responses.

Here are the key effects of gallic acid on prostate cancer:

1. Gallic acid shows anti-cancer properties against prostate cancer:

- It inhibits prostate cancer cell viability, colony formation, and tumor spheroid formation[1].

- Gallic acid decreases tumor size and damages tumor structure in prostate cancer xenograft models[1].

- It induces apoptosis and DNA fragmentation in prostate cancer cells[1].

2. Gallic acid's effects on prostate cancer cells involve:

- Downregulation of histone deacetylases HDAC1 and HDAC2[1].

- Upregulation of acetyl-p53 expression[1].

- Downregulation of cell cycle-related genes like PCNA, Cyclin D1, and Cyclin E1[1].

- Upregulation of cell cycle arrest gene p21[1].

- Regulation of apoptosis-related genes like Bax, Bcl-2, and Caspase-3[1].

3. Gallic acid shows selective toxicity towards prostate cancer cells compared to normal prostate cells[2][3].

4. It induces G2/M cell cycle arrest in prostate cancer cells by reducing levels of CDKs and cyclins[4].

5. Oral administration of gallic acid inhibits prostate tumor growth and progression in animal models[4].

July 4, 2024: Multivitamins Marketed for Women Over 50

The women's 50+ multivitamins typically contain higher amounts of certain nutrients to address the specific needs of this age group.
But the brand "Garden of Life" women's multivitamins have been found to harm the vitamin D level in some women including my own wife and some other Amazon reviewers. We also don't trust some of the ingredients of other brands. We do not have any recommendation for any brand of multivitamins. Instead, we prefer to be as natural as possible and get most of our nutrients from food, herbs and spices. (We do take some individual supplements but not a multivitamin because I haven't yet found one that I trust and can use personally based on our needs.)

Here are some necessary nutrients commonly found in women's age 50+ vitamins, along with their natural sources:

It's worth noting that multivitamins for women over 50 often contain lower amounts of iron compared to those for younger women, as iron needs typically decrease after menopause[2][3].

While these nutrients can be obtained from a balanced diet, some women over 50 may benefit from supplementation, especially if they have difficulty meeting their nutritional needs through food alone.

June 28, 2024: Estrogen is extremely important for all females. But too much estrogen is one of the most common causes of disease!

Too much estrogen is a leading cause of female cancer and many other diseases. Contrary to traditional medical brainwashing, it's not automatic that as a woman grows older that she will need more estrogen to replace the lost estrogen. We have been lied to. We provide the following 4 links for your research:
https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2024/01/14/estrogen-and-serotonin.aspx
https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2023/08/06/endotoxins-and-estrogen-health-effects.aspx
https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2024/06/04/flax-high-pufa-estrogenic.aspx
https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2024/05/20/migraines-high-estrogen-low-thyroid.aspx

Therefore it's important to not always assume that women need more estrogen but rather to ensure that they have the proper balance of estrogen and that you allow the body itself to decide that proper level/balance.

Several herbs and natural supplements are claimed to help balance/control proper estrogen levels in females, rather than automatically increasing estrogen.

1. Vitex (Chasteberry): This herb is believed to support the pituitary gland and balance hormone levels, particularly progesterone and estrogen.
2. Black Cohosh: It may act as an estrogen modulator, helping to balance estrogen levels when they are too high or too low.
3. Dong Quai: This herb is considered a female tonic and may help restore liver function, which is important for hormone metabolism.
4. Ashwagandha: As an adaptogenic herb, it may help the body manage stress and support adrenal function, which plays a role in hormone production.
5. Maca: This root vegetable is thought to help balance hormones without containing hormones itself.
6. DIM (Diindolylmethane): A compound found in cruciferous vegetables (such as broccoli) that may help metabolize excess estrogen.
7. Evening primrose oil: Rich in gamma-linolenic acid, it may help balance hormones.

Additional resources:
(Please be warned, that although some of these links/articles recommend soy, I would never recommend soy for anything. Most soy is GMO. But even if you find non-GMO soy, it's still very bad for your health. Soy being good for your health is an old myth. Stay away from it as far as possible!)

June 24, 2024: Vinegar for Pickling, Canning, and Herbal Tinctures

Just a little warning for all who are canning pickles or anything using vinegar including herbal tinctures. This year you cannot just grab a plastic jug of vinegar or even pickling vinegar without checking the label. Safe pickling/tinctures requires 5% acidity....but for the first time we are seeing 4% acidity vinegar... on the shelves. That renders anything persevered in the 4% not shelf stable.

For safe home pickling and food preservation, the vinegar used must have at least 5% acidity. This is critical for food safety reasons:

1. Vinegar with 5% acidity or higher is necessary to properly acidify foods and prevent the growth of harmful bacteria, especially Clostridium botulinum which causes botulism[1][3].

2. Research-tested recipes for home canning and pickling are developed using 5% acidity vinegar. Using vinegar with lower acidity could result in unsafe pH levels and potential spoilage[1][4].

3. While 4% acidity vinegars are becoming more common in stores, these should not be used for home pickling or canning[1][3].

4. When shopping for vinegar to use in pickling, always check the label to ensure it states 5% acidity[1][4].

5. White distilled vinegar and apple cider vinegar sold for pickling are typically standardized to 5% acidity[1].

6. If using wine vinegars, ensure they are at least 5% acidity, as some may range from 3-6%[1].

7. Rice vinegar, which is often around 4-4.3% acidity, is not suitable for most pickling recipes unless the recipe is specifically developed for it[1][3].

In summary, for safe home pickling, always use vinegar with at least 5% acidity unless following a recipe specifically developed for a lower acidity vinegar[1][3][4].

June 23, 2024: Health of Gut/Intestines, Digestive System and How it effects the entire body and mind.

Today's Dr. Mercola's newsletter focused once again, as it does often, upon the health of the gut and intestines.

He said the kidney stones (this would also include gallbladder stones) form because the body is not able to properly absorb foods that we eat. This is mostly caused by how we have become too much accustomed to processed foods and to seed oil such as sunflower oil.

I have read extremely often about the importance of being able to digest our foods and how that causes lots of different diseases and health problems that you would not normally think are related to our digestive health, but yet they are.

The digestive health is very much related to our mental health and our immune system, and heart issues and other issues.

The health of our eyes, brain, skin, liver, kidneys, gallbladder, and everything that could possibly name, are all related to our digestive health.

We must slow down when eating and properly chew our food. I cannot over stress the importance of chewing your food well and thoroughly.

Eat smaller bites. Use only a teaspoon and not a large tablespoon to eat with.

Drink enough water. But not from 32 oz, 20 oz, 16 oz, and 12 oz plastic bottles.

Take a good magnesium supplement and krill fish oil. (Fish oil must stay in the refrigerator, even if it’s capsules.)

If you take vitamin D supplements, you absolutely must also take vitamin K and magnesium. Otherwise the vitamin D will make you worse, not better.

Eat yogurt, sauerkraut, raw fruits and raw vegetables, salads, nuts, and seeds.

Consume either Brewer's yeast or nutritional yeast every day. Only in the mornings. I like to rotate between these 2 daily. Never use both at the same time.

Consume a tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar every day.

Cook only with coconut oil, olive oil, butter, meat grease, animal fat and water.

Don't use sunflower oil, corn oil, canola oil, vegetable oil, margarine and fake butter.

Don't eat or drink everything with artificial sweeteners.

Don't drink soda on a regular basis.

If you drink milk, coffee, oat milk or tea, it must be organic.

If you eat oats, oatmeal or tomatoes, it must be organic.

Use white sugar only very rarely. Instead use coconut sugar, date sugar, date syrup, molasses, and honey.

Don't consume soy and flax.

Don't consume salad dressing and mayonnaise that is sold in the stores. Instead, make your own mayonnaise and salad dressings at home.

Don't accept antibiotics from the pharmacy. Instead use oregano oil, curcumin, colloidal silver, ginger, cinnamon, garlic, aloe vera, elderberry and ivermectin.

Following all of the above advice will help you to be much healthier and have less kidney stones and gallbladder stones.

June 22, 2024: Natural Supplements: Best Brands to Buy and Toxic ingredients to Avoid

I try to use only very few, selected brands that are well known and have a good record of offering good prices and good quality, dependable, pure products.
The brands I trust most are:

Nutricost
"Doctor's Best"
Carlyle
"Oregon's Wild Harvest"
Zazzee
"Bulk Supplements"
Barlean's
"Sports Research"
"Healthy Origins"
NatureBell
Double Wood
Star-West Botanicals
Frontier Co-op

Avoid these toxic ingredients as much as possible:
If I can't find any alternative without these, then I choose the product that has only one, if possible.
Magnesium Stearate
Silica
Silicon dioxide
Soy (If it has soy, it must also say Non-GMO or organic. But I still wouldn't buy it with non-GMO/organic soy unless there was no better alternative.)

June 18, 2024: The most important vitamins and nutrients for prostate health, other than lycopene, selenium, and zinc which are very important for the prostate, are:

Vitamin D: Low levels of vitamin D are linked to an increased risk of prostate cancer and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Vitamin D helps regulate prostate cell growth and death[1][2].

Vitamin E: This powerful antioxidant helps reduce oxidative stress and eliminate free radicals that can contribute to prostate issues like cancer[1].

Omega-3 fatty acids: Omega-3s have anti-inflammatory properties that may help reduce prostatitis and the risk of BPH and prostate cancer[1][3].

Vitamin C: As an antioxidant, vitamin C helps neutralize free radicals and may prevent prostate enlargement by inhibiting a molecule involved in prostate cell growth[2].

Calcium: While excess calcium could increase prostate cancer risk, adequate calcium intake plays an important role in prostate health[1].

Fiber: A diet rich in fiber from fruits, vegetables, and whole grains may reduce the risk of prostate cancer and its progression[3].

In summary, vitamins D, E, and C, omega-3s, calcium, and fiber are crucial for maintaining a healthy prostate in addition to lycopene, selenium, and zinc. A balanced diet and appropriate supplementation can provide these essential nutrients.

June 13, 2024: Both lemon juice and cinnamon help lower the body's glucose level as well as to alkaline the body. Therefore both lemon juice and cinnamon help to counter the negative health effects of sugar.

Always add lemon juice to your sweet tea and always add either lemon juice or cinnamon to your fruit juices.

The search results indicate that both lemon juice and cinnamon can help lower the body's glucose levels and promote an alkaline environment.

Regarding lemon juice:

- A study found that consuming lemon juice before a meal of rice significantly suppressed the post-meal spike in blood glucose levels by around 20% compared to having just rice. [5]

- The acidic nature of lemon juice, particularly its citric acid content, is thought to slow down the digestion and absorption of starches/carbohydrates, thereby reducing the glycemic impact. [2][5]

- Although lemon juice is acidic before digestion, once metabolized by the body, it produces alkaline byproducts that can make the urine more alkaline. [4]

As for cinnamon:

- While not directly mentioned in the provided search results, numerous studies have shown that cinnamon can help improve glucose metabolism and reduce fasting blood glucose levels in diabetics and pre-diabetics. .

- Cinnamon is considered an alkaline-forming food that can help promote an alkaline environment in the body when metabolized.

So in summary, both lemon juice and cinnamon exhibit beneficial effects in regulating blood sugar levels through different mechanisms, and they also contribute to an overall alkaline state in the body after digestion and metabolism, despite lemon juice being acidic initially. [2][4][5]

June 9, 2024: Oregano oil gel capsules are one of the most powerful and important natural antibiotics in the world.

Take these only during infection. Take only one per day, or two maximum.
This is one item that I would never ever be caught without! It is one of the most important things to keep in our natural medicine cabinets.

June 9, 2024: Take vitamin D gel capsules only on cloudy days and whenever you are trapped inside all day.

When taking vitamin D supplements, you must absolutely also take vitamin K and magnesium both, or else the vitamin D could actually make your health worse.
Whenever you are dealing with any illness/crisis, take extra vitamin D.

May 31, 2024: Several herbs and foods have been shown to help regulate blood sugar levels, both lowering high blood sugar and preventing low blood sugar. Here are some of the most effective ones:

## Herbs for Blood Sugar Regulation

### Fenugreek
Fenugreek seeds are high in soluble fiber which slows digestion and absorption of carbohydrates, helping to lower blood sugar levels.[1][2] Studies have shown fenugreek can significantly reduce fasting blood sugar, HbA1c (average blood sugar over 2-3 months), and improve glucose tolerance in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.[1]

### Cinnamon
Cinnamon has been found to increase insulin sensitivity, reduce blood glucose levels, and lower cholesterol in people with type 2 diabetes.[1][3] However, some studies have shown contradictory results on its effectiveness.[2]

### Bitter Gourd
Bitter gourd contains compounds called charantin and polypeptide-p which mimic insulin and help lower blood sugar levels.[3] It has been used traditionally to treat diabetes.

### Turmeric (Or even more powerful, curcumin)
The active compound curcumin in turmeric has been shown to have anti-diabetic effects by improving insulin sensitivity and reducing inflammation.[3]

## Foods for Blood Sugar Regulation

### Nuts and Seeds
Nuts like almonds and seeds like flaxseeds and chia seeds are high in fiber, healthy fats, and protein which can help stabilize blood sugar levels and prevent spikes.[3]

### Leafy Greens
Leafy greens like spinach and kale are low in calories and carbs but high in fiber and nutrients that support blood sugar control.[3]

### Berries
Berries like blueberries and raspberries are high in fiber and antioxidants which can improve insulin sensitivity and reduce blood sugar levels.[3]

### Fatty Fish
Fatty fish like salmon and sardines are rich in omega-3 fatty acids which have been linked to better blood sugar regulation and reduced inflammation.[3]

It's important to note that while these herbs and foods can be beneficial, they should be used in conjunction with a balanced diet, regular exercise.

May 28, 2024: Cancer Surgeon Drops Ivermectin Bombshell

Dr. Kathleen Ruddy has seen several late-stage cancer patients make dramatic recoveries after taking i v e r m e c t i n.

One patient in particular had a grim future, and then something remarkable happened.

This man had stage four prostate cancer and tried all the conventional protocols before doctors told him that there was nothing they could do.

Then, he started taking iver-mectin…
Within six months, the metastatic lesions began to disappear, and in less than a year, “he was out dancing for four hours” three nights per week, according to Dr. Ruddy.
A similar scenario unfolded for another man named Eddie. He was also in bad shape.
Eddie was diagnosed with two unresectable esophageal tumors that surgeons wouldn’t go near. He was a smoker, couldn’t swallow, and had lost 40 pounds.
“Within a couple of weeks, he sounded stronger. He could swallow. He had gained six pounds. His voice was better,” reported Dr. Ruddy.
Several weeks later, Dr. Ruddy said to Eddie, “You need to get a scan.” Guess what happened?
“We got the scan. No tumors. Gone. Gone. The problem was that he had sold his fishing boat. That was the biggest problem. He was getting better. His tumor was gone. Now he’s got to buy another fishing boat ... I was like, ‘Well, now, that’s interesting.’”

May 24, 2024: Recipe for an all-natural electrolyte drink

## Citrus Ginger Electrolyte Drink

**Ingredients:**
- 1 cup fresh orange juice
- 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
- 1 inch piece fresh ginger, grated or thinly sliced
- 1/4 tsp Raymond's "Real Salt"
- 2 tbsp raw honey or maple syrup
- 3 cups water

**Instructions:**
1. In a small saucepan, combine the orange juice, lemon juice, lime juice, grated ginger, salt, and water.
2. Bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes to allow the ginger flavor to infuse.
3. Remove from heat and stir in the raw honey or maple syrup until dissolved.
4. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove the ginger solids.
5. Allow to cool completely, then transfer to a pitcher or bottles and refrigerate until chilled.

**Notes:**
- The citrus juices provide vitamin C, potassium, and natural electrolyte-replenishing properties[4].
- Ginger adds anti-inflammatory benefits and can help reduce nausea[4].
- Sea salt or pink Himalayan salt replaces sodium lost through sweat[1][2][3].
- Raw honey or maple syrup provide a touch of carbohydrates for energy[1][2][3].

- You can adjust the sweetener to taste preference.

- For extra hydration, you can substitute some or all of the water with coconut water[2][3].

This homemade electrolyte drink skips any powders and gets its electrolyte boost from natural ingredients like citrus, salt, and optional coconut water[1][2][3][4]. It's a refreshing way to replenish vital electrolytes without artificial additives.

May 23, 2024: Requirement of Sodium

Everyone needs sodium every day. It’s extremely important for your brain and overall health. But most sodium is extremely bad for you. The only sodium that is healthy is what's natural in foods and herbs and in red colored salts such as “Pink Himalayan salt” and another one called “Raymond's Real salt” which is also red/pink. There are some others also, and even some white salts that you can buy at some very special “health food stores”. But the white salts that you normally find at the local grocery store are very toxic and your body will absolutely hate that white salt from the local grocery store: and the salt that is found in canned foods and packaged foods is the same toxic salt.
But you must ensure that the Pink Himalayan salt doesn't have the Halal Mark, which is an Islamic Sharia Law Mark which declares that the company complies with Islamic Sharia Law, which is part of 666.
Because Pink Himalayan salt is from Pakistan, I recommend "Redmond's real Salt" from Utah. Link is to their website, but you can also get it from your local health food store and Amazon and VitaCost.com.
I don't recommend "Sea salt" because it's contaminated with plastic.

May 23, 2024: Brain Health

Brain health is extremely important in the context of today’s society when we are all being poisoned by things that they are putting in our food and water. It’s important to exercise every day. Some more than other days. Some less.
And it’s important to sleep at the same time every day/night and not allow yourself to nap in between times unless you are in your 50’s or older or have ADHD, Autism or Schizophrenia or other major health issues. Laziness is not good.
It’s important to eat right, not drink soda pops, avoid all soy, avoid food colorings and GMO products which is most ice cream. It’s important to eat REAL foods, not processed food. REAL food is raw meats and raw fruits and vegetables found raw in the produce section or frozen, not in cardboard boxes.
It’s important to keep your brain sharp with musical instruments, puzzles, card games, or reading books. The more that you are reading online, the worse for your brain! Read the bible in the real paperbacks, NOT online.
The online AOB website is really just only for searching words.

May 23, 2024: Minerals for Health of Gut/Intestines

Calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, sodium, potassium, chloride.
You need all of these natural nutrients and more such as yeast. But you should never take an artificial source of zinc or calcium. You should get all of your zinc and calcium from pure natural foods and herbs.
Pumpkin seeds - High in zinc (2.2 mg per 30g serving) and calcium (46 mg per 30g serving).
Cashews - Good source of zinc (1.6 mg per 1 oz serving) and calcium (28 mg per 1 oz serving).
Chickpeas - Provide zinc (2.5 mg per 1 cup cooked) and calcium (80 mg per 1 cup cooked).
Lentils - Contain zinc (4.7 mg per 1 cup cooked) and calcium (38 mg per 1 cup cooked).
Sesame seeds - Provide 1 mg of zinc and 88 mg of calcium per 1 oz serving.

May 20, 2024: Teeth

Toothpaste that you buy in the store contain several chemicals. You absorb those chemicals into your bloodstream and digestive system. It is not good for you. It is better to use plain water with baking soda. And cheaper!

May 20, 2024: Migraines

Excess estrogen and inadequate progesterone, along with high linoleic acid (LA) (Omega 6) intake, are key factors in migraines. Lowering LA and estrogen can eliminate most migraines. Magnesium is also very helpful for a lot of people that have migraines. Also a person could try a diet without milk, as many people are allergic to modern processed milk.

May 16, 2024: There are several natural foods and herbs that can help keep stools soft and intact

## Fiber-rich Foods

Fiber adds bulk to stools and helps them pass smoothly through the digestive system. Good sources include:
- Fruits like prunes, figs, pears, berries, and apples with skin[1][4]
- Vegetables like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, carrots, and artichokes[4]
- Whole grains like oats, brown rice, and whole wheat bread[1]
- Nuts and seeds like chia, flax, and almonds[4]

## Probiotics

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that can improve gut health and promote regular bowel movements. Good sources include:
- Yogurt with live cultures[1]
- Kefir[1]
- Fermented foods like sauerkraut and kimchi[1]

## Herbs and Spices

Certain herbs and spices have natural laxative properties that can soften stools:
- Psyllium husk[1]
- Aloe vera juice
- Ginger
- Fennel seeds
- Dandelion root

## Healthy Fats

Fats like those found in avocados, olive oil, and nuts can help lubricate the intestines for smoother bowel movements[2].

## Adequate Hydration
Drinking enough water and fluids is crucial for keeping stools soft and preventing constipation.

It's important to increase fiber intake gradually and drink plenty of fluids to avoid gas, bloating, or cramping. Moderation is key when using herbs or spices with laxative effects[1].
