The Aloe Vera Miracle by Mike Adams

Below is an excerpt from an article on Aloe Vera that I found very interesting. None of the links in the excerpt are active, but you can read the whole article at www.newstarget.com/021858.html . Enjoy : )


"When I say aloe vera is the most impressive medicinal herb invented by nature, I don't make that statement lightly. Of all the herbs I've ever studied -- and I've written thousands of articles on nutrition and disease prevention -- aloe vera is the most impressive herb of them all. (Garlic would be a close second.) There is nothing on this planet that offers the amazing variety of healing benefits granted by aloe vera. In a single plant, aloe vera offers potent, natural medicine that:

• Halts the growth of cancer tumors.
• Lowers high cholesterol.
• Repairs "sludge blood" and reverses "sticky blood".
• Boosts the oxygenation of your blood.
• Eases inflammation and soothes arthritis pain.
• Protects the body from oxidative stress.
• Prevents kidney stones and protects the body from oxalates in coffee and tea.
• Alkalizes the body, helping to balance overly acidic dietary habits.
• Cures ulcers, IBS, Crohn's disease and other digestive disorders.
• Reduces high blood pressure natural, by treating the cause, not just the symptoms.
• Nourishes the body with minerals, vitamins, enzymes and glyconutrients.
• Accelerates healing from physical burns and radiation burns.
• Replaces dozens of first aid products, makes bandages and antibacterial sprays obsolete.
• Halts colon cancer, heals the intestines and lubricates the digestive tract.
• Ends constipation.
• Stabilizes blood sugar and reduces triglycerides in diabetics.
• Prevents and treats candida infections.
• Protects the kidneys from disease.
• Functions as nature's own "sports drink" for electrolyte balance, making common sports drinks obsolete.
• Boosts cardiovascular performance and physical endurance.
• Speeds recovery from injury or physical exertion.
• Hydrates the skin, accelerates skin repair.

Truly, there is nothing else that compares to the medicinal potential of aloe vera. And yet most people only know about the topical applications of aloe vera gel. They think it's only good for sunburns. In reality, aloe vera is useful for both external and internal use. " [to read the rest of this article go to http://www.newstarget.com/021858.html. ]

The health benefits of peroxide.

Check out what you can do with a little brown bottle of 3% peroxide that you can get for under $1.00 at any drug store.

1. ( Take one capful (the little white cap that comes with the bottle) and hold in your mouth for 10 minutes daily, then spit it out. No more canker sores and your teeth will be whiter without expensive pastes. Use it instead of mouthwash.) I no longer believe that peroxide should be used this way.  It is very irritating to the soft tissue of your mouth.

2. Let your toothbrushes soak in a cup of "Peroxide" to keep them free of germs.

3. Clean your counters, table tops with peroxide to kill germs and leave a fresh smell. Simply put a little on your dishrag when you wipe, or spray it on the counters.

4. After rinsing off your wooden cutting board, pour peroxide on it to kill salmonella and other bacteria.

5. Fungus on your feet? - spray a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water on them (especially the toes) every night and let dry.

6. Soak any infections or cuts in 3% peroxide for five to ten minutes several times a day.

8. Fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 mixture of peroxide and water and keep it in every bathroom to disinfect without harming your septic system like bleach or most other disinfectants will.

9. Tilt your head back and spray into nostrils with your 50/50 mixture whenever you have a cold, or plugged sinuses. It will bubble and help to kill the bacteria. Hold for a few minutes then blow your nose into a tissue.

10. If you have a terrible toothache and cannot get to a dentist right away, put a capful of 3% peroxide into your mouth and hold it for ten minutes several times a day. The pain will lessen greatly.

11. And of course, if you like a natural look to your hair, spray the 50/50 solution on your wet hair after a shower and comb it through. You will not have the peroxide burnt blonde hair like the hair dye packages, but more natural highlights if your hair is a light brown, faddish, or dirty blonde. It also lightens gradually so it's not a drastic change.

12. Put half a bottle of peroxide in your bath to help rid boils, fungus, or other skin infections.

13. You can also add a cup of peroxide instead of bleach to a load of whites in your laundry to whiten them. If there is blood on clothing, Pour directly on the soiled spot. Let it sit for a minute, then rub it and rinse with cold water. Repeat if necessary.

14. And my favorite is the peroxide drops in your ear when you feel a cold coming on. (see previous post) People tell me all the time how much this helps them fight colds and ear infections.

Brrrr....... Home cold remedies.

Here in the midwest we are getting pummeled with snow so we'll be having the whitest Christmas we've seen in a long time. Of course with all the damp, cold weather comes winter colds and flu.

I have some simple suggestions to help you stay healthy this winter.

~ Keep your ears clean! Sounds weird I know, but many pathogens enter the respiratory system through the ear canals. A simple way to thwart the bugs is to put a few drops of hydrogen peroxide in your ear while lying down. Let it bubble and fizz [it's killing bugs] then drain and do the other ear. This can be done several times a day if you already have a cold or flu. The results are pretty amazing.

~ Drink hot tea. Did you know that the herb thyme is antiseptic and is especially beneficial for fighting sore throats and croupy coughs? Make a tea from 3 cups of water, 2-3 tsp of dried thyme and some fresh ginger. Simmer for 10 minutes in a stainless steel or glass pot. Throw in a cinnamon stick too if you like. Then strain and add lemon and honey and drink all day to make that cough disappear and chase the chills.

~ If the flu is catching you - take a bath. One of the best detoxifiers that feels really good is a hot soak in a tub with a pint of hydrogen peroxide, 2 cups of epsom salts and 1/2 cup of baking soda. Stay in for at least 30 minutes - more if you can. Add more hot water as needed Then bundle up and go right to bed, and I can almost guarantee you will feel very much better in the morning.

~ Stay hydrated! This seems much harder in the winter because we don't get hot and sweaty so we don't think about drinking water. It's SO important in fighting disease. All those toxins you breathe in and eat have to be flushed out again if you want to stay healthy. Drink your 8 - 10 glasses of purified H2O every day, and you'll be one of the healthiest kids on the block.

Of course the best medicine is prevention and I have a some suggestions there too.
Have a wonderful Holiday Season.
Be well,
