|How To Heal
Four Natural and Inexpensive Cancer Remedies That Have Worked For Thousands
Section 1; The Cause
This document will present to you a radically new concept: One of the reasons that you have cancer is that you are infected with a parasite (an intestinal fluke). Now, presented with this hard-to-believe information, I suggest that you do one of two things: either snort in disgust at this ridiculous concept and fling this document over your shoulder, or keep an open mind and read on.
For those of you who are still with me now, this document is meant to be a concise and brief explanation of cancer therapies which have worked for thousands of cancer sufferers. The remedies suggested in this document are simple and inexpensive (perhaps why you will not hear about them from the medical establishment).
How can it be that a parasite causes cancer? First of all, unknown to most of us, most people have one or more parasites in their bodies. We got them from running barefoot as children, from eating undercooked meat, from eating improperly washed fruits and vegetables, and from handling our pets. One of these parasites is an intestinal fluke. It's scientific name is Fasciolopsis buskii. It is quite small. Normally this fluke lives where it is supposed to live, in our intestinal tract. There it does little noticeable harm. But sometimes they also invade other organs or parts of your body. There they do a great deal of harm. When the flukes establish themselves there, they can cause cancer.
When, for example, a person's liver becomes infested with these intestinal flukes, the flukes cause a growth factor to appear which is called ortho-phospo-tyrosine. For brevity I shall refer to it as "ortho". This ortho has a normal function in the body of causing cells to divide. There may be thousands of the flukes in a heavily infested liver. All of them are busy devouring your body fluids and nutrients while spewing forth their waste which further contaminates your liver. This causes the ortho to go haywire, dividing cells where it shouldn't. Thus you develop cancer in your liver.
Section 2; Why Haven't You Been Told This Before?
Now that you have survived my first shocking statement (about the parasites!), I now present my other shocker. You are not told the truth about the effectiveness of some cancer therapies because of the business implications. You see, cancer is big business. And the big businesses that control the health care market protect their profits and interests. What many of us (myself included) have great difficulty accepting is that perhaps the medical establishment has placed a higher priority on profit making than they have curing cancer. This is hard to believe. It was for me. It is for others. I have many times spoken with cancer suffers who could not fathom that the institutions which they had trusted all of their lives would let them die in order to make more money. I appreciate their dilemma.
Many people, forced by the ravages of their steadily worsening cancer to choose whether or not to follow an alternative approach, elect not to. That is their choice, and I respect them for that. However I believe very strongly that it was important for them to have this choice. And that is the purpose of this document: to present this information to you so that you may have a choice. This is a fundamental right which is guaranteed to us by our beloved Constitution.
Some uncomfortable information is as follows: The largest industry in this country is the petrochemical industry. The second largest industry is cancer. Cancer is a $3.4 billion industry in this country. When a simple and inexpensive remedy for cancer exists, it threatens the livelihood of some very powerful institutions and groups of people. They then apply political pressure. As an example, the AMA has the largest lobbying group in Washington. Why do our own doctors need the the largest lobbying effort to effect the legislation which governs us? This results in great pressure being placed on government agencies such as the FDA. The Food and Drug Administration is staffed with competent and dedicated people. But the lobbying results of the American Medical Association and the pharmaceutical companies have resulted in rules and regulations which are patently unfair, and result in natural healing modalities being discriminated against. For example, when cures for cancer which contain herbs or other natural ingredients are presented to the FDA for approval, the FDA cannot consider them because it is only allowed to approve drugs. This "Catch 22" means that you will never see an alternative approach to curing cancer approved by them. In addition, hundreds of millions of dollars are needed to fund the many studies which are required for FDA approval.
Only the large pharmaceutical companies can play in this game.
What about your doctor? Your doctor places his career in jeopardy if he ever recommends a non-drug approach (non-FDA approved) to curing your cancer. At the turn of the century, the same monied interests which owned the major drug companies established the American Medical Association (AMA). While we were told that the AMA was our protector against quackery, the AMA quietly but effectively launched a campaign to eradicate all approaches to medicine which competed with the use of drugs (allotropic medicine). Thus natureopathy, herbal medicine, and many other modalities faded from view.
Meanwhile the AMA also quietly but steadily influenced the curriculums of of the medical schools so that most doctors today are for the most part only taught a drug approach to healing. As an example, one doctor told me that, during his eight years of medical study, he received only four hours of nutrition training, So it isn't that your doctor is a bad guy. On the contrary, he or she is probably very hard working and dedicated. It is just that the system is just as aligned against him as it is against you when it comes to alternative approaches to medicine.
Some doctors are fighting this system. My hero is Dr. David G. Williams of PO Box 929, Ingram, Texas 78025. He publishes a fantastic newsletter called Alternatives for the Health Conscious Individual. I highly recommend this newsletter. Dr. Williams explains the medical establishment's control very succinctly: he says that if there is an effective cure that is inexpensive, and cannot be controlled by the AMA or the drug companies, you are not going to hear about it from your family doctor or the government.
Statistics support this shocking situation. The US spends more (much more) than any other country on its health systems. Yet we rank 79th in terms of overall health. How can this be?
Section 3: I Want Some Proof!
This document is too brief and concise to contain testimonials or other evidence that my assertion that cancer is caused by a parasite. However this information is available. One good source is the 502 page document The Cure For All Cancers by Dr. Hulda Regehr Clark. This document may be purchased for $19.95 from any good document store. This document contains 100 case histories and is crammed with valuable and informative details.
Section 4; Why Cancer Locates Where It Does
Why does one person develop cancer in the lungs, and another person develop cancer in the prostate gland? It is because the intestinal flukes have spread from the intestinal tract to this area. They do so because this area is weakened. Generally, parasites thrive much better in a weakened organism. This area of the body is weakened because it has one or more of the following problems:
a. lost its immune power
b. accumulated a heavy dosage of heavy metals
c. accumulated a large dosage of toxins
d. weakened because of improper nutrition
e. not supplied with a sufficient amount of oxygen.
f. existence of too many free-radicals.
For example, let us take the situation where a man's prostate gland has accumulated a large amount of heavy metals such as mercury, lead and arsenic. Also, PCBs have accumulated there, along with the insecticides and pesticides he has accumulated in his body over his lifetime. All of these contaminating poisons will place stress on this part of his body.
In addition, this man's overall immune system is low as a result of a lifetime's abuse of his body. He has eaten too many processed foods, and as a result the cells of his body lack certain minerals, vitamins and nutrients which they need in order to perform properly. His life has been at times too stressful, resulting in an overactive adrenal system which has become stressed.
A lack of sufficient fiber in his diet has resulted in a buildup in his large intestine (colon) of an impenetrable lining of undigested food deposits. This lining has prevented his blood system from performing its job of expelling toxins and wastes through the walls of the colon so they can be expelled from the body. As a result, his blood system, unable to expel the toxins and wastes, must carry them around in the body as it performs its work. The problem created here is that this reduces the amount of oxygen the blood can carry to nourish the cells of the body. Deprived of the oxygen supply they need for proper health, the cells of the body become weakened.
Free radicals also play a part. What is a free radical? A free radical is a scavenger in your body which is caused by sunlight, radiation, pollution, harmful chemicals, food additives, tobacco smoke, and stress. Free radicals cause tremendous damage to virtually every kind of tissue in your body, leading to cancer and many other ills.
As a result of all of the above, the intestinal flukes have determined that this man's prostate gland is weak, and they select it as a new home. Cancer of the prostate will eventually follow.
Section 5; Solutions
We propose the following solutions to get rid of your cancer:
1. Kill all of the intestinal flukes in your body. Then the ortho-phospo-tyrosine will disappear.
2. Remove the heavy metals from your body.
3. Remove the toxins from your body.
4. Build up the body's immune system.
5. Purify your blood so that sufficient oxygen is supplied to all parts of your body.
6. Destroy the excess free-radicals in your body.
This document will provide specific suggestions on how to accomplish the above utilizing herbal parasite remedies, Essiac (a herbal remedy), Pycnogenol (a pine bark extract in tablet form), and Kombucha tea. All are natural remedies and all are inexpensive.
It is suggested that you may take all four remedies at the same time. They do not interfere with each other.
In addition, you may wish to seek further information from other sources about how to:
1. Cleanse your colon through diet modification, fasting, herbal cleanses, or colonics.
2. Improve your diet and eating habits so that your body maintains a permanent level of proper nourishment so that the cells which make up your body are restored to good health.
Suggestion One: Natural Herbal Parasite Remedies
The Native Americans knew that their bodies needed to be periodically cleansed of parasites. So did the early pioneers, who brought European remedies with them. Some of us can still remember our grandmothers each Spring giving us a big spoonful of molasses and sulfur or molasses and turpentine. What a taste! But it did apparently do the job. Somewhere along the way this ancient knowledge has been forsaken.
There are drugs you can take for parasites. However each drug works for only one or two types of parasites. It is much better to follow the herbal remedies we are going to present here, because these remedies will get rid of all of the parasites in your body. And they are inexpensive and not difficult to follow.
The three herbs are Black Walnut Hulls, Wormwood, and Cloves. Used together, they are effective against over 100 different types of parasites. The Black Walnut Hulls and the Wormwood will kill the adult parasites. The Cloves will kill the eggs and tiny developmental stage parasites so that you are not quickly reinfected.
Black Walnut Hulls are taken as a tincture (made by soaking the hulls in grain alcohol). In this regard, many of the Black Walnut tinctures sold in health food stores are made using water, and they are not potent enough. So we recommend that you purchase your extract from Kroeger Herb Products, 805 Walnut St., Boulder CO 80302, Tel: 800 225 8787. You will need only one 1 oz. bottle. You will also need two bottles of 80 Wormwood capsules each, and about 100 capsules of cloves.
These can also be purchased from Kroeger Herbal Products, or you can buy them at your local herb shop or health food store.
The cleansing program which we recommend is:
1. Black Walnut Hull tincture: twice a day; 30 drops on an empty stomach.
2. Wormwood Capsules: once a day; 14 capsules on an empty stomach.
3. Clove Capsules: three times a day; 3 capsules on an empty stomach.
Take these until you have run out. This should do the job. It wouldn't be a bad idea to repeat this regimen once a year from now on, to prevent reinfection.
An alternative approach: In her documents The Cure For All Cancers, The Cure For All Diseases, and The Cure For HIV And AIDS, Dr. Hulda R. Clark describes in specific detail how she discovered how to build an inexpensive electronic gadget which will destroy all parasites, viruses and bacteria in your body. She named this device "The Zapper". She gives directions on how to build the device using parts which can be found at Radio Shack. How does it work? On page 15 of her document The Cure For All Illness, she states "Any positive offset frequency kills all bacteria, viruses and parasites simultaneously, given sufficient voltage, 5 to 10 volts, duration of seven minutes and frequency between 10 and 500,000 Hz." The Zapper does this.
For those of you, such as myself, who wish to try this device, but are not electronically inclined, the device can be purchased for $60.00 from Natural Heritage Ent., 4524 Curry Ford Rd., Suite 530, Orlando FL 32812. Natural Heritage offers a 30 day money back guarantee. I have personally used the device with great effectiveness. In the long run I found it cheaper and easier to use the device than to take the herbal approach. I plan to "zap" myself every three months or so, to keep parasites from getting resettled in my body. The treatments are painless. But you will probably experience fatigue for several days after using the machine, as your body diverts its energy to expelling the dead parasites, viruses, and bacteria.
"Essiac" the Indian Herbal Remedy From Canada
Essiac has a proven track record of curing thousands of cancer. Among its many reported properties, it kills parasites in your body, detoxifies the body, removes heavy metals, and it builds up the immune system. It has also been found effective as a treatment for AIDS, lupus, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, and many other illnesses. That such a simple remedy exists, is so widely unknown, and continues to be ignored by the mainstream medical establishment, is an amazing story.
The Essiac Story:
Rene Caisse was a nurse in Canada. In 1923 she observed that one of her doctor's patients, a woman with terminal cancer, made a complete recovery. Inquiring into the matter, Rene found that the woman had used a herbal remedy given to her by an Ojibway indian herbalist. Rene visited the indian medicine man, and he gladly and freely presented her with his tribe's formula.
He explained to her that the Ojibway used their tonic both for spiritual balance and body healing. The formula consisted of four common herbs. They were blended and cooked in a fashion which caused the concoction to have a greater curative power than any of the four herbs themselves. The four herbs were Sheep Sorrel, Burdock Root, Slippery Elm Bark, and Rhubarb Root.
With her doctor's permission, Rene began to administer the herbal remedy to other terminal cancer patients who had been given up by the medical profession as incurable. Most recovered.
Rene then began to collect the herbs herself, prepare the remedy in her own kitchen, and to treat hundreds of cancer cases.
She set up a clinic in Bracebridge, Ontario where she administered the herbal remedy free to all who sought her help. She found that Essiac, as she named the herbal remedy, could not undo the effects of severe damage to the life support organs. In such cases, however, the pain of the illness was alleviated and the life of the patients was extended longer than predicted. In the other cases, where the life support organs had not been severely damaged, cure was complete, and the patients lived another 35 or 40 years. Some are still alive today.
Rene selflessly dedicated herself to helping these patients. She continued to treat hundreds of patients from her home. She did not charge for her services. Donations were her only income. They barely kept her above the poverty line. Over the years word of her work began to spread. The Canadian medical establishment did not take kindly to this nurse administering this remedy directly to anyone with cancer who requested her help. Thus began many years of harassment and persecution by the Canadian Ministry of Health and Welfare. Word of this struggle was carried throughout Canada by newspapers.
The newspaper coverage of Rene's work began to make her famous. Word was also spread far and wide by the families of those healed by Essiac. Eventually, the Royal Cancer Commission became interested in her work. They undertook to study
In 1937 the Royal Cancer Commission conducted hearings about Essiac. Eventually the Canadian Parliament, prodded by the newspaper coverage and the widespread support generated for Rene by former patients and grateful families, voted in 1938 on legislation to legalize the use of Essiac. Fifty-five thousand signatures were collected on a petition presented to the Parliament. The vote was close, but Essiac failed by three votes to be approved as an officially sanctioned cure for cancer.
The complete story of Rene Caisse's life and struggles is told in a document written by Dr.Gary Glum entitled The Calling of An Angel. Copies can be obtained from Silent Walker Publishing, PO Box 80098, Los Angeles CA 90080. The document tells of the documented recovery of thousands of cancer patients who had been certified in writing by their doctors as incurable. Rene continued her work for 60 years. She died in 1978. Rene had entrusted her formula to several close friends, one of whom passed the formula along to Dr. Glum.
Of interest is that, in the 1960s, Rene Caisse worked with the well known Brusch Clinic in Massachusetts. Dr. Charles A. Brusch was the personal physician for President John F. Kennedy. After 10 years of research about Essiac, Dr. Brusch made the following statement: "Essiac is a cure for cancer, period. All studies done at laboratories in the United States and Canada support this conclusion".
What It Is
Rene Caisse' a herbal formula contains four commonly occurring herbs:
Sheep Sorrel (Rumex acetosella).
The leaves of young Sheep Sorrel plants were popular as a cooking dressing and as an addition to salads in France several hundred years ago. Indians also use Sheep Sorrel leaves as a tasty seasoning for meat dishes. They also baked it into their bread. Thus it is both an herb and a food.
Sheep Sorrel belongs to the buckwheat family. Common names for Sheep Sorrel are field sorrel, red top sorrel, sour grass and dog eared sorrel. It should not be confused with Garden Sorrel. (Rumex acetosa).
Sheep Sorrel grows wild throughout most of the world. It seeks open pastures, rocky areas, and the shoulders of country roads. It is considered to be a common weed throughout the U. S. The entire Sheep Sorrel plant may be harvested to be used in Essiac. Or, just the leaves and stems may be harvested, and this allows the plants to be "reharvested" later. The plant portion of the Sheep Sorrel may be harvested throughout the spring, summer, and fall. Harvest the leaves and stem before the flowers begin to form, since at this stage, all of the energy of the plant is in the leaves.
Burdock Root (Arctium lappa).
The roots, young stems, and seeds of the Burdock plant are edible. Young stalks are boiled to be eaten like asparagus. Raw stems and young leaves are eaten in salads. Parts of the Burdock plant are eaten in China, Hawaii, and among the Native American cultures on this continent. It is then, both a herb and a food.
The Burdock is a member of the thistle family. Remember the last time you cleaned cockleburrs from your clothing after a sojourn in the woods or meadow? Chances are, you had run up against this very friendly and helpful plant, you just didn't know it! It is a common pasture weed throughout North America. It prefers damp soils.
The first years the Burdock plant produces only green leafy growth. It is during the second year that it produces the long sturdy stems with annoying burrs.
The root of the Burdock plant is harvested. It is harvested from only the first year plants. The roots are about an inch wide, and up to three feet long. As with the Sheep Sorrel, the roots should only be harvested in the Fall when the plant energy is concentrated in the roots. And again, purchase your roots only from a reliable supplier.
Slippery Elm (Ulcus fulva).
The inner bark of the Slippery Elm tree has a long history of use as a food supplement and herbal remedy. Pioneers knew of it as a survival food. The powdered bark has long been used, and is still being used today, as a food additive and food extender, rich in vitamin and mineral content. Thus it also is both an herb and a food.
The Slippery Elm is a favorite shade and ornamental tree. It is found throughout Canada and the United States. Only the inner bark of the Slippery Elm is used to make Essiac. Reliable supplies of Slippery Elm can be purchased in powdered form, and this is probably easier and preferable to harvesting it yourself. Should you wish to harvest your own Slippery Elm, strip the bark from branches, rather than from the main trunk system of the tree so that you do not damage the tree.
Turkey Rhubarb (Rheum palmatum).
We have all eaten Rhubarb. Its red, bittersweet stems are to be found in supermarket produce shelves each Spring. We also eat rhubarb pie, jams and pudding. The Turkey Rhubarb is a member of the rhubarb family with roots which contain a particularly strong and desirable potency.
The Turkey Rhubarb grows in China. The roots are harvested when the plants are at least six years old. This imported product has more potency than our native rhubarb. Rene Caisse began her Essiac work using the domestic rhubarb root, later discovering that the imported variety was more potent and less bitter. However most of the Turkey Rhubarb which is now imported into this country is irradiated, so that native rhubarb is now once again the rhubarb of choice for your Essiac blend.
1. Should you choose to harvest your own plants, we strongly suggest that you follow the Native American practice of saying a short prayer to the plants before you harvest them. Thank them for the help they will give you. We believe that your plants, thus consecrated, will be more potent and effective. (You may think talking to plants is a bit loony - but the power of thought and prayer is very real!).
2. Keep your eye out for classes on herbs and herb identification. Seek out herbalists who are willing to educate you on plant identity, harvesting techniques, plant drying and processing.
3. Do not collect herbs from areas where insecticides or herbicides have been used. You want only organic herbs!
Note: Many of you may prefer to purchase your Rene Caisse herbal drink in bottles. Others may wish to buy a package of the dried herb mixture and brew their own. We provide mail order instructions for both on page 13. The original formula, as given by Rene Caisse, is listed below: Please note that she made large batches for many patients, and we are reprinting here her exact instructions for a two gallon batch, although you would probably not need such a large amount at one time. A smaller amount is offered in the mail order dried herbal package (see pg. 13) which makes 1/2 gallon of Essiac (which is a two week or four week supply, depending upon whether you take it once or twice daily).
52 parts: Burdock Root (cut or dried) (parts by weight).
16 parts: Sheep Sorrel (powdered)
1 part: Turkey Rhubarb Root (powdered) or 2 parts native Rhubarb Root
4 parts: Slippery Elm Bark (powdered)
This is the basic four herb formula which was presented to the Royal Cancer Commission in 1937 and was found by them to be a "cure for cancer". Later in her life, while working with Dr. Charles Brusch in Massachusetts, Rene added small potentizing amounts of four other herbs to her basic four herb formula. They were added as follows: Kelp (2 parts), Red Clover (1 part), Blessed Thistle (1 part), Watercress (0.4 parts). We consider the addition of these four extra herbs optional.
4 gallon stainless steel pot with lid
3 gallon stainless steel pot with lid
Stainless steel fine mesh double strainer, funnel & spatula
12 or more 16 oz. sterilized amber glass bottles with airtight caps, or suitable substitutes.
1. Mix dry ingredients thoroughly. Place herbs in a plastic bag and shake vigorously.
2. Bring the sodium free distilled water to a rolling boil in the 4 gallon pot (with lid on). Should take approximately 30 minutes at sea level.
3. Stir in 1 cup of dry ingredients. Replace lid and continue to boil for 10 minutes.
4. Turn off stove. Scrape down the sides of the pot with the spatula and stir mixture thoroughly. Replace the lid.
5. Allow the pot to remain closed for 12 hours. Then turn the stove to the highest setting and heat to almost a boil (approximately 20 minutes). Do not let boil.
6. Turn off the stove. Strain the liquid into the 3 gallon pot. Clean the 4 gallon pot and strainer. Then strain the filtered liquid back into the 4 gallon pot.
7. Use the funnel to pour the hot liquid into sterilized bottles immediately, taking care to tighten the caps. After the bottles have cooled, tighten the caps again.
8. Refrigerate. Rene's herbal drink contains no preservative agents. If mold should develop, discard the bottle immediately.
Caution: All bottles and caps must be sterilized after use if you plan to reuse them for Essiac. Bottle caps must be washed and rinsed thoroughly, and may be cleaned with a 3% solution of food grade hydrogen peroxide (may be purchased in health food stores). To make a 3% solution, mix 1 ounce of 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide with 11 ounces of sodium free distilled water. Let soak for 5 minutes, rinse and dry. If food grade hydrogen peroxide is not available, use one half teaspoon of Clorox to one gallon of distilled water.
Instructions for Use (as reported by Dr. Glum)
1. Keep refrigerated.
2. Shake bottle well before using.
5. People with cancer and other ill people may wish to twice daily take 4 tablespoons (2 ounces), once in the morning, 5 minutes before eating, and once in the evening, at least 2 hours after eating.
a. Stomach Cancer patients must dilute the herbal drink with an equal amount of sodium free distilled water.
b. Many people have reported that Rene's drink works well to detoxify the body, and have taken it as a detoxification program.
c. Precaution: Some doctors advise against taking the herbal formula while pregnant.
Recommendation: Rene reported that the twelve hour brewing process is essential for Essiac to have its special powers. Essiac is now being offered to the public in pills, teabags, and homeopathic drops. We do not recommend them. They may work, but they are not what Rene used, nor have we seen evidence that they work.
What It Does
The components of Rene's herbal drink interact to have an amazing effect on the human body. The chemicals, minerals, and vitamins all act synergistically together to produce a variety of healing agents.
Sorrel plants have been a folk remedy for cancer for centuries both in Europe and America. Sheep Sorrel has been observed by researchers to break down tumors, and to alleviate some chronic conditions and degenerative diseases.
It contains high amounts of vitamins A and B complex, C,D,E,K,P and vitamin U. It is also rich in minerals, including calcium, chlorine, iron, magnesium, silicon, sodium, sulphur, and has trace amounts of copper, iodine, manganese and zinc. The combination of these vitamins and minerals nourishes all of the glands of the body. Sheep Sorrel also contains carotenoids and chlorophyll, citric, malic, oxalic, tannic and tartaric acids.
The chlorophyll carries oxygen throughout the bloodstream. Cancer cells do not live in the presence of oxygen. It also:
reduces the damage of radiation burns
increases resistance to X-rays
improves the vascular system, heart function intestines, and lungs
destroys parasites in the body
aids in the removal of foreign deposits from the walls of the blood vessels
purifies the liver, stimulates the growth of new tissue
reduces inflammation of the pancreas, stimulates the growth of new tissue
raises the oxygen level of the tissue cells
Sheep Sorrel is the primary healing herb in Essiac.
For centuries Burdock has been used throughout the world to treat illness and disease. The root of the Burdock is a powerful blood purifier. It clears congestion in respiratory, lymphatic, urinary and circulatory systems. It promotes the flow of bile, and eliminates excess fluid in the body. It stimulates the elimination of toxic wastes, relieves liver malfunctions, and improves digestion. The Chinese use Burdock Root as an aphrodisiac, tonic, and rejuvenator. It assists in removing infection from the urinary tract, the liver, and the gall bladder. It expels toxins through the skin and urine. It destroys parasites. It is good against arthritis, rheumatism, and sciatica.
Burdock Root contains vitamins A, B complex, C, E, and P. It contains high amounts of chromium, cobalt, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, silicon, and zinc. It also contains smaller amounts of calcium, copper, manganese, selenium, and sulphur.
Much of the Burdock Roots curative power is attributed to its principal ingredient of Unulin, which helps to strengthen vital organs, especially the liver, pancreas, and spleen.
Slippery Elm Inner Bark
Slippery Elm Bark is widely known throughout the world as a herbal remedy. As a tonic it is known for its ability to sooth and strengthen the organs, tissues, and mucous membranes, especially the lungs and stomach. It promotes fast healing of cuts, burns, ulcers and wounds. It revitalizes the entire body.
It contains, as its primary ingredient, a mucilage, as well as quantities of gallic acid, phenols, starches, sugars, the vitamins A, B complex, C, K, and P. It contains large amounts of calcium, magnesium, and sodium, as well as lesser amounts of chromium and selenium, and trace amounts of iron, phosphorous, silicon and zinc.
Slippery Elm Bark is known among herbalists for its ability to cleanse, heal, and strengthen the body.
Rhubarb, also a well known herb, as been used worldwide since 220 BC as a medicine.
The Rhubarb root exerts a gentle laxative action by stimulating the secretion of bile into the intestines. It also stimulates the gall duct to expel toxic waste matter, thus purging the body of waste bile and food. As a result, the liver is cleansed, and chronic liver problems are relieved.
Rhubarb root contains vitamin A, many of the B complex, C, and P. Its high mineral content includes calcium, chlorine, copper, iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium, silicon, sodium, sulphur, and zinc.
Rene Caisse's Herbal Drink Has The Following Therapeutic Activity:
1. Prevents the buildup of excess fatty deposits in artery walls, heart, kidney and liver.
2. Regulates cholesterol levels by transforming sugar and fat into energy.
3. Destroys parasites in the digestive system and throughout the body.
4. Counteracts the detrimental effects of aluminum, lead and mercury poisoning.
5. Strengthens and tightens muscles, organs and tissues.
6. Makes bones, joints, ligaments, lungs, and membranes strong and flexible, less vulnerable to stress or stress injuries.
7. Nourishes and stimulates the brain and nervous system.
8. Promotes the absorption of fluids in the tissues.
9. Removes toxic accumulations in the fat, lymph, bone marrow, bladder, and alimentary canals.
10. Neutralizes acids, absorbs toxins in the bowel, and eliminates both.
11. Clears the respiratory channels by dissolving and expelling mucus.
12. Relieves the liver of its burden of detoxification by converting fatty toxins into water-soluble substances that can then be easily eliminated through the kidneys.
13. Assists the liver to produce lecithin, which forms part of the myelin sheath, a white fatty material that encloses nerve fibers.
14. Reduces, perhaps eliminates, heavy metal deposits in tissues (especially those surrounding the joints) to reduce inflammation and stiffness.
15. Improves the functions of the pancreas and spleen by increasing the effectiveness of insulin.
16. Purifies the blood.
17. Increases red cell production, and keeps them from rupturing.
18. Increases the body's ability to utilize oxygen by raising the oxygen level in the tissue cells.
19. Maintains the balance between potassium and sodium within the body so that the fluid inside and outside each cell is regulated: in this way, cells are nourished with nutrients and are also cleansed.
20. Converts calcium and potassium oxalates into a harmless form by making them solvent in the urine. It also regulates the amount of oxalic acid delivered to the kidneys, thus reducing the risk of stone formation in the gall bladder, kidneys, or urinary tract.
21. Protects against toxins entering the brain.
22. Protects the body against radiation and X-rays.
23. Relieves pain, increased appetite, and provides more energy along with giving a sense of well being.
24. Speeds up wound healing by regenerating the damaged area.
25. Increases the production of antibodies like lymphocytes and T-cells in the thymus gland, which is the defender of our immune system.
26. Inhibits and possibly destroys benign growths and tumors.
27. Protects the cells against free radicals.
Suggestion Three: Pycnogenol, the Pine Bark Extract from France
An excess of free radicals in a person's body causes major damage, including cancer. The best free radical killer is Pycnogenol (pronounced pig-nodge-a-nol). Pycnogenol is a patented antioxidant from France which is made from a pine tree bark extract.
Lets talk more about free radicals. The normal oxygen atom in your body has four pairs of electrons. However the effects of radiation, sunlight, air pollution, harmful chemicals, food additives, tobacco smoke, infections and stress can rob one of the electrons from the oxygen atom. This atom is now a free radical. It tries to replace its lost electron by raiding other molecules.
It will rob an electron from a molecule in a cell wall. This robbed molecule proceeds to replace its lost electron by robbing another molecule, and a chain reaction is created. This leads to disintegration of the cell, and opens the door to cancer and many other ills. It also alters the DNA which damages the way in which the cells in your body replicate. This leads to aging. Some studies suggest that these free radicals are a major cause of aging.
How does Pycnogenol help? It is a very powerful antioxidant. An antioxidant has extra electrons which it can "give up" to the free radicals, thereby rendering them harmless.
I recommend Pycnogenol because of its power. It has the ability, in a matter of a few months, to destroy all of the excess free radicals which you have built up over a lifetime. It is inexpensive. It is easy to locate. It comes in tablet form. Every health food store stocks it. Dr. Lamar Rosquist recommends that you take one mg. of Pycnogenol daily per pound of body weight during the initial period when you are ridding yourself of all accumulated free radicals. This means that a 200 pound man would take 200 mg. of Pycnogenol daily for the first two or three months. Later you may wish to slack off to a lower maintenance level dosage.
Pycnogenol is reported to assist in the recovery of cancer, Alzheimers, arthritis, Parkinsons, rheumatism, asthma, diabetes, stress, varicose veins, phlebitis, PMS, AIDS, senility, M.S., chronic fatigue, stroke, circulatory and cardiovascular problems. It has also been reported to greatly assist in limiting wrinkling and aging of the skin. When I took Pycnogenol, I found my energy levels dramatically boosted.
To locate a source of Pycnogenol, I suggest that you visit one or more health food stores and check out their supply of Pycnogenol. They may be able to offer some helpful advice, and they may have literature available with additional information about this antioxidant. I have even found Pycnogenol stocked in K Mart and my local drug store.
Suggestion Four: Kombucha, the Amazing Mushroom Tea
Years ago the Russian government sent a team of investigators to check out why the residents of an area in Manchuria were cancer free. The people of this area also regularly lived to be over 100 years of age. After a two year study, the investigators attributed the longevity and good health of these people to a yeast enzyme tea called Kombucha. It had been part of their diet for hundreds of years. Now the use of Kombucha is spreading like wildfire in the United States.
In an April, 1995 issue of US Today newspaper, an article about Kombucha tea stated that five to six million Americans were drinking Kombucha tea daily. I am sure that this number of Kombucha drinkers has grown since then. It is inexpensive, I find it fun to make, and most people enjoy the taste. I keep several one gallon "sun tea" jars of Kombucha brewing at all times. I keep the jars prominently sitting on my kitchen counter, where they become a conversation piece for my visitors.
During an August 1995 showing of the TV program Entertainment Tonight which covered Kombucha, it was mentioned that the Hollywood stars Cher, Susan Sarandon, Martin Landau, Meg Ryan, and Linda Evans were all Kombucha drinkers. In addition, Anjelica Huston, Lily Tomlin, Morgan Fairchild, and Rita Coolidge are said to be Kombucha fans. It is reported that Kombucha cleanses the blood, stops cancer, increases energy levels, reverses hardening of the arteries, reduces high blood pressure, boosts T-cell counts, removes wrinkles, thickens the hair, and relieves headaches. Studies in California report that HIV patients drinking Kombucha do not progress into Aids. Other testimonials state that it reverses graying hair, stops PMS, reverses the symptoms of multiple sclerosis, and shrinks prostates.
Kombucha is known to provide the liver with glucuronic acid, a substance which the liver uses to detoxify our bodies. In this manner, Kombucha helps the liver to perform its critical function of "binding up" toxic substances so they can be carried away by the blood and dispelled from our bodies.
Kombucha is fun to make, tastes great, is cheap, and if you take it daily, you too may live to become 100 years old!
