Magnesium deficiency is often misdiagnosed because it does not show up in blood tests – only 1% of the body’s magnesium is stored in the blood.

Most doctors and laboratories don’t even include magnesium status in routine blood tests. Thus, most doctors don’t know when their patients are deficient in magnesium, even though studies show that the majority of Americans are deficient in magnesium.

 

We thirst for magnesium rich water

 

Consider Dr. Norman Shealy’s statements, “Every known illness is associated with a magnesium deficiency” and that, “magnesium is the most critical mineral required for electrical stability of every cell in the body. A magnesium deficiency may be responsible for more diseases than any other nutrient.” The truth he states exposes a gapping hole in modern medicine that explains a good deal about iatrogenic death and disease. Because magnesium deficiency is largely overlooked, millions of Americans suffer needlessly or are having their symptoms treated with expensive drugs when they could be cured with magnesium supplementation.

One has to recognize the signs of magnesium thirst or hunger on their own since allopathic medicine is lost in this regard. It is really something much more subtle then hunger or thirst but it is comparable. In a world though where doctors and patients alike do not even pay attention to thirst and important issues of hydration, it is not hopeful that we will find many recognizing and paying attention to magnesium thirst and hunger, which is a dramatic way of expressing the concept of magnesium deficiency.

Few people are aware of the enormous role magnesium plays in our bodies. Magnesium is by far the most important mineral in the body. After oxygen, water, and basic food, magnesium may be the most important element needed by our bodies; vitally important, yet hardly known. It is more important than calcium, potassium or sodium and regulates all three of them. Millions suffer daily from magnesium deficiency without even knowing it

In fact, there happens to be a relationship between what we perceive as thirst and deficiencies in electrolytes. I remember a person asking, “Why am I dehydrated and thirsty when I drink so much water?” Thirst can mean not only lack of water but it can also mean that one is not getting enough nutrients and electrolytes. Magnesium, Potassium, Bicarbonate, Chloride and Sodium are some principle examples and that is one of the reasons magnesium chloride is so useful.

Magnesium Torment (Deficiency)

 

You know all those years, when doctors used to tell their patients ‘its all in your heads,’ were years the medical profession was showing its ignorance. It is a torment to be magnesium deficient on one level or another. Even if it’s for the enthusiastic sport person whose athletic performance is down, magnesium deficiency will disturb sleep and background stress levels and a host of other things that reflect on the quality of life. Doctors have not been using the appropriate test for magnesium – their serum blood tests just distort their perceptions. Magnesium has been off their radar screens through the decades that magnesium deficiencies have snowballed.

Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency

The first symptoms of deficiency can be subtle – as most magnesium is stored in the tissues, leg cramps, foot pain, or muscle ‘twitches’ can be the first sign. Other early signs of deficiency include loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and weakness. As magnesium deficiency worsens, numbness, tingling, seizures, personality changes, abnormal heart rhythms, and coronary spasms can occur.

A full outline of magnesium deficiency was beautifully presented in a recent article by Dr. Sidney Baker. “Magnesium deficiency can affect virtually every organ system of the body. With regard to skeletal muscle, one may experience twitches, cramps, muscle tension, muscle soreness, including back aches, neck pain, tension headaches and jaw joint (or TMJ) dysfunction. Also, one may experience chest tightness or a peculiar sensation that he can’t take a deep breath. Sometimes a person may sigh a lot.”

Symptoms involving impaired contraction of smooth muscles include constipation; urinary spasms; menstrual cramps; difficulty swallowing or a lump in the throat-especially provoked by eating sugar; photophobia, especially difficulty adjusting to oncoming bright headlights in the absence of eye disease; and loud noise sensitivity from stapedius muscle tension in the ear.”

“Other symptoms and signs of magnesium deficiency and discuss laboratory testing for this common condition. Continuing with the symptoms of magnesium deficiency, the central nervous system is markedly affected. Symptoms include insomnia, anxiety, hyperactivity and restlessness with constant movement, panic attacks, agoraphobia, and premenstrual irritability. Magnesium deficiency symptoms involving the peripheral nervous system include numbness, tingling, and other abnormal sensations, such as zips, zaps and vibratory sensations.”

“Symptoms or signs of the cardiovascular system include palpitations, heart arrhythmias, and angina due to spasms of the coronary arteries, high blood pressure and mitral valve prolapse. Be aware that not all of the symptoms need to be present to presume magnesium deficiency; but, many of them often occur together. For example, people with mitral valve prolapse frequently have palpitations, anxiety, panic attacks and premenstrual symptoms. People with magnesium deficiency often seem to be “uptight.” Other general symptoms include a salt craving, both carbohydrate craving and carbohydrate intolerance, especially of chocolate, and breast tenderness.”

Magnesium is needed by every cell in the body including those of the brain. It is one of the most important minerals when considering supplementation because of its vital role in hundreds of enzyme systems and functions related to reactions in cell metabolism, as well as being essential for the synthesis of proteins, for the utilization of fats and carbohydrates. Magnesium is needed not only for the production of specific detoxification enzymes but is also important for energy production related to cell detoxification. A magnesium deficiency can affect virtually every system of the body.

 

Water rich in magnesium can prevent magnesium deficiency

Like water we need magnesium everyday. There is an
eternal need for magnesium as well as water and when
magnesium is present in water life and health are enhanced.

One of the principle reason doctors write millions of prescriptions for tranquilizers each year is the nervousness, irritability, and jitters largely brought on by inadequate diets lacking magnesium. Persons only slightly deficient in magnesium become irritable, highly-strung, and sensitive to noise, hyper-excitable, apprehensive and belligerent. If the deficiency is more severe or prolonged, they may develop twitching, tremors, irregular pulse, insomnia, muscle weakness, jerkiness and leg and foot cramps.

If magnesium is severely deficient, the brain is particularly affected. Clouded thinking, confusion, disorientation, marked depression and even the terrifying hallucinations of delirium tremens are largely brought on by a lack of this nutrient and remedied when magnesium is given. Because large amounts of calcium are lost in the urine when magnesium is under supplied, the lack of this nutrient indirectly becomes responsible for much rampant tooth decay, poor bone development, osteoporosis and slow healing of broken bones and fractures. With vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), magnesium helps to reduce and dissolve calcium phosphate kidney stones.

Magnesium deficiency may be a common factor associated with insulin resistance. Symptoms of MS that are also symptoms of magnesium deficiency include muscle spasms, weakness, twitching, muscle atrophy,  an inability to control the bladder, nystagmus (rapid eye movements), hearing loss, and osteoporosis.  People with MS have higher rates of epilepsy than controls.  Epilepsy has also been linked to magnesium deficiencies.[1]

Another good list of early warning symptoms suggestive of magnesium insufficiency:

  • Physical and mental fatigue
  • Persistent under-eye twitch
  • Tension in the upper back, shoulders and neck
  • Headaches
  • Pre-menstrual fluid retention and/or breast tenderness

Possible manifestations of magnesium deficiency include:

  • Low energy
  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Confusion
  • Nervousness
  • Anxiousness
  • Irritability
  • Seizures (and tantrums)
  • Poor digestion
  • PMS and hormonal imbalances
  • Inability to sleep
  • Muscle tension, spasm and cramps
  • Calcification of organs
  • Weakening of the bones
  • Abnormal heart rhythm

Severe magnesium deficiency can result in low levels of calcium in the blood (hypocalcemia). Magnesium deficiency is also associated with low levels of potassium in the blood (hypokalemia). Magnesium levels drop at night, leading to poor REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep cycles and unrefreshed sleep. Headaches, blurred vision, mouth ulcers, fatigue and anxiety are also early signs of depletion.

We hear all the time about how heart disease is the number one health crisis in the country, about how high blood pressure is the “silent killer”, and about how ever increasing numbers of our citizens are having their lives and the lives of their families destroyed by diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and a host of other chronic diseases.

 

 

Signs of severe magnesium deficiency include:

  • Extreme thirst
  • Extreme hunger
  • Frequent urination
  • Sores or bruises that heal slowly
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Blurry vision that changes from day to day
  • Unusual tiredness or drowsiness
  • Tingling or numbness in the hands or feet
  • Frequent or recurring skin, gum, bladder or vaginal yeast infections

But wait a minute, aren’t those the same symptoms for diabetes? Many people have diabetes for about 5 years before they show strong symptoms. By that time, some people already have eye, kidney, gum or nerve damage caused by the deteriorating condition of their cells due to insulin resistance and magnesium deficiency. Dump some mercury and arsenic on the mixture of etiologies and pronto we have the disease condition we call diabetes.

Magnesium deficiency is synonymous with diabetes and is at the root of many if not all cardiovascular problems.

Magnesium deficiency is a predictor of diabetes and heart disease both; diabetics both need more magnesium and lose more magnesium than most people. In two new studies, in both men and women, those who consumed the most magnesium in their diet were least likely to develop type 2 diabetes, according to a report in the January 2006 issue of the journal Diabetes Care. Until now, very few large studies have directly examined the long-term effects of dietary magnesium on diabetes. Dr. Simin Liu of the Harvard Medical School and School of Public Health in Boston says, “Our studies provided some direct evidence that greater intake of dietary magnesium may have a long-term protective effect on lowering risk,” said Liu, who was involved in both studies.

The thirst of diabetes is part of the body’s response to excessive urination. The excessive urination is the body’s attempt to get rid of the extra glucose in the blood. This excessive urination causes the increased thirst. But we have to look at what is causing this level of disharmony. We have to probe deeper into layers of cause. The body needs to dump glucose because of increasing insulin resistance and that resistance is being fueled directly by magnesium deficiency, which makes toxic insults more damaging to the tissues at the same time.

When diabetics get too high blood sugars, the body creates “ketones” as a by-product of breaking down fats. These ketones cause blood acidity which causes “acidosis” of the blood, leading to Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA), This is a very dangerous condition that can lead to coma and death. It is also called “diabetic acidosis”, “ketosis”, “ketoacidosis” or “diabetic coma”. DKA is a common way for new Type 1 diabetics to be diagnosed. If they fail to seek medical advice on symptoms like urination, which is driving thirst they can die of DKA.

Oral magnesium supplements reduce erythrocyte[2] dehydration.[3] In general, optimal balances of electrolytes are necessary to maintain the best possible hydration. Diabetic thirst is initiated specifically by magnesium deficiency with relative calcium excess in the cells. Even water, our most basic nutrient starts having a hard time getting into the cells with more going out through the kidneys.

Autism and Magnesium Deficiency

When dealing with autism spectrum and other neurological disorders in children it is important to know the signs of low magnesium: restless, can’t keep still, body rocking, grinding teeth, hiccups, noise sensitive, poor attention span, poor concentration, irritable, aggressive, ready to explode, easily stressed. When it comes to children today we need to assume a large magnesium deficiency for several reasons.

1) The foods they are eating are stripped of magnesium because foods in general, as we shall see below are declining in mineral content in an alarming way.

2) The foods many children eat are highly processed junk foods that do not provide real nutrition to the body.

3) Because most children on the spectrum are not absorbing the minerals they need even when present in the gut. Magnesium absorption is dependent on intestinal health, which is compromised totally in leaky gut syndromes and other intestinal problems that the majority of autism syndrome disorders.

4) Because the oral supplements doctors rely on are not easily absorbed, because they are not in the right form and because magnesium in general is not administered easily orally.

Modern medicine is supposed to help people not hurt them, but with their almost total ignorance of magnesium doctors end up hurting more than they help for many of the medical interventions drive down magnesium levels when they should be driving them up. Many if not most pharmaceutical drugs drive magnesium levels into very dangerous zones and surgery done without increasing magnesium levels is much more dangerous then surgery done with.

The foundation of medical arrogance is actually medical ignorance and the only reason ignorance and arrogance rule the playing field of medicine is a greed lust for power and money. Human nature seems to be at its worst in modern medicine when it should be at its best. It is sad that people have to suffer needlessly and extraordinarily tragic that allopathic medicine has turned its back on the Hippocratic Oath and all that it means.

Castor Oil for Health

Have you heard about castor oil for health?

Been looking for it?

We are so pleased to have this product available for you now.

BIO-SIL CASTOR OIL, *organic  *cold-pressed  *hexane-free

There are many benefits from this amazing oil.

 

We have focused here on a few of the benefits of castor oil.

Thanks to Dr Axe for this valuable information:

Castor Oil Speeds Up Healing & Improves Your Immunity 

 

 
 
Folk healers worldwide have used castor oil to treat a wide variety of health conditions for thousands of years. The use of castor oil goes as far back as the ancient Egyptians, who used it to treat eye irritations and as a powerfu natural skinccare remedy.  In India, it has been prized for its skin-healing, digestive-soothing, antibacterial properties,  plus it’s commonly used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine practices.

What is castor oil exactly? It is a nonvolatile fatty oil that comes from the seeds of the castor bean (Ricinus communis) plant which belongs to the flowering spurge family (Euphorbiaceae). Castor oil, also called ricinus oil, is very thick with a color that ranges from clear to amber or somewhat green. It has a mild scent and taste.

 

1. Improves Immune Function

Castor oil may be able to help improve lymphatic drainage, blood flow, thymus gland health and other immune system functions. A small, double-blind study published in the Journal of Naturopathic Medicine looked at the effects of castor oil packs on 36 human subjects. The packs covered a 12-inch by 12-inch area of the skin on the upper right quadrant of the abdomen. The subjects had the packs applied while resting at 9 a.m. and then removed at 11 a.m. (so for a total of two hours). The subjects had their blood drawn four times (one time pre-treatment and three times post-treatment) and there was no repetition of treatment.

Overall, the researchers found that the subjects who used abdominal castor oil packs had significant increases in the production of lymphocytes compared with patients using placebo packs. Why is this an awesome finding? Lymphocytes are the immune system’s natural “disease-fighters” that attack outside invaders such as toxins, bacteria and other perceived threats.

So it appears that castor oil helps with the production of proper levels of lymphocytes, which are released and stored within the lymphatic tissue of the thymus gland, spleen, lymph nodes and tissue that lines the small intestine. The lymphatic system also impacts the circulatory and digestive systems, which is why the oil is sometimes used to support heart health and improve digestive issues like constipation, too.

 

2. Boosts Circulation

A healthy lymphatic system and proper blood flow go hand in hand. When the lymphatic system fails (or edema develops, which is the retention of fluid and toxins), it’s much more likely someone will have circulatory issues. This is due to the fact that the lymphatic circulatory system works directly with the cardiovascular circulatory system to keep blood and lymphatic fluid levels in an optimal balance.

According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, “A growing body of evidence reveals that the lymphatic system influences the health of multiple organs, including the heart, lung, and brain.”  So castor’s oil ability to positively affect our lymphatic systems likely means better overall circulation and a health boost to major organs like our hearts.

Nettle Magic

Here’s something we can all do – at no cost on the pocket but huge health benefits

 

Image result for nettle tea

Nettles drying, dried and in tea. Been drinking a pint a day for a few days – I put a liquorice tea bag in my brew – tastes quite good. The why do it …….. Energize and Enjoy with Nettle

Stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) is a common weed throughout much of the world. The dried herb makes a nourishing herbal infusion that packs more energy per cup than any stimulant, and without the downside of caffeine or stimulating herbs like cayenne and ginger. Tired teenagers, sleep-deprived new moms, stressed executives, wakeful menopausal gals, and wise women of all ages depend on stinging nettle to restore mood, replenish energy, and guarantee sound sleep.

Nettle is amazingly rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals, especially the critical trace minerals: anti-cancer selenium, immune-enhancing sulphur, memory-enhancing zinc, diabetes-chasing chromium, and bone-building boron. A quart of nettle infusion contains more than 1000 milligrams of calcium, 15000 IU of vitamin A, 760 milligrams of vitamin K, 10% protein, and lavish amounts of most B vitamins.

There is no denser nutrition found in any plant, not even bluegreen algae; and nettle is much more reasonably priced than any supplement, especially if you buy more than an ounce or two at a time.

Image result for nettle tea

But we must consume lots of nettle to get this power-packed nutrition. I infuse a full ounce dried nettle in a quart of water to make a brew that nourishes my ability to think and supports my desire to work. Infusing nettle maximizes its energy-enhancing effects too. Teas, tinctures and capsules of nettle contain too little herb to make a difference in vim and vigor. To experience the miracle of nettle, you’ll need to take the time to make a real infusion (directions follow).

A student writes: “After drinking a quart of nettle infusion daily for only four days, I now have more energy then my toddler! Now, when he goes to sleep, I get some time to myself, instead of falling asleep with him. I can’t thank you enough for the gift of nettle.”

Nettle builds energy from the inside out by nourishing the adrenals, which I think of as “energy central.” Nettle smoothly and persistently carries optimum nourishment to every cell in the body, and brings a smile to your face. Because the minerals in nettle infusion are polarized to the blood, they are literally magnetized into the blood stream without needing to be digested. Drinking a glass of cold nettle infusion pumps so much nourishment into the blood; you’ll feel invigorated in just a few days.

Regular use of stinging nettle (I drink 2-3 quarts a week) not only increases energy, it brings a shine and swing to the hair, strengthens fingernails, clears and firms skin, restores elasticity to blood vessels, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol, counters incontinence, improves digestion, reduces cancer risk, and strengthens the lungs.

Another student writes: “My doctor is astonished. He insisted that I had to take drugs to deal with my severe osteoporosis. Instead, I drank two quarts of nettle infusion a week for several years. According to my latest bone scan, I now—at the age of 67—have the bone mass of a woman half my age. Ha, ha, ha! With nettle, I get the last laugh on modern medicine.”

To make a nettle infusion: Measure out one ounce of the dried herb. Boil a quart of water. Put the dried herb into a quart jar and fill to the top with the boiling water. Stir with a wooden spoon and add water until the jar is full to the top. Lid tightly and set aside to brew for at least four hours, or overnight, whichever is easier for you.

To use: Strain and squeeze the liquid out of the herb. Be sure to refrigerate your infusion, as it will go bad at room temperature once it is done brewing. (If that happens, I use it as plant food. And you should see how my roses adore it!)

Nettle infusion is delicious over ice. Its rich green taste is not at its best when served hot. Adding honey can make it taste quite strange. Some folks like to add a little apple juice to sweeten it. Or stir in some miso, for a salty drink. However you consume it, do drink it up within a few days, as nettle infusion doesn’t last.

Colloidal Silver – all you need to know

COLLOIDAL SILVER 

also known as The Universal Antibiotic 

Prior to 1938 colloidal silver was considered to be one of the mainstays of antibiotic treatment. It is still considered to be the most universal antibiotic substance that is non-toxic.  It has been proven to be useful against over hundreds of different health conditions, as compared to traditional antibiotics, which are questionably effective against 6-7 conditions

….

From the wonderful humanitarian, physicist, grandfather of COLLOIDAL SILVER –  Dr Robert  Beck (D.Sc)

‘TRUE COLLOIDAL SILVER : Trace elements exist even in distilled water, and when the charged silver particles combine with a specific trace element, the solution can turn one of a number of colors, like gray, yellow, green or brown.  The element the silver chooses is largely irrelevant.  

….

Is it safe?

Zero toxicity – wonderful for your pets too

The body’s ability to process the tiny atoms of colloidal silver makes silver build-up in the body impossible.  The Environmental Protection Agency’s Poison control Center reports a “No Toxicity” listing for colloidal silver.  In fact, it appears that harmlessness is one of the attributes of the colloidal state.

According to the EPA (CASRN 7440-22-4) Daily Oral Silver Reference Dose (RfD) applied to 10 ppm, one may ingest 178,850 servings safely over 70 years

….

Do we need colloidal silver?

Since the body has a vital need for silver – to maintain the immune system and to produce new, healthy cells – and since our blood is also a colloid, the harmonious way in which colloids enter the body may well make colloidal silver the safest medicine on earth.

….

How to administer colloidal silver – 

* One product for a multitude of applications

* A sip a day straight from the bottle is best!

* Just 5 -10 ml per day, or mega-dose, e.g. three or four times a day when the immune system is compromised

* To fight infections increase dosage (30+ ml), even mega-dose until the infection has cleared

* This product can be applied directly to open wounds, eye/ear infections and skin problems

* It can be inhaled or applied into the nostrils with an eye-dropper for sinus, cough and post-nasal drip

* A spray attachment is available which screws onto the bottles,enabling one to use BIO-SIL as a cooling spritzer, deodorant, skin toner, spray for burns and wounds etc

Colloidal Silver and Colds: A Safe, Simple and FAST Way to Stop Colds Before They Get Started!
A personal testimony:
Using Colloidal Silver in the Ears:

…The next time I felt a cold coming on, I used COLLOIDAL SILVER in my ears, instead of hydrogen peroxide. I used three drops of 10 ppm homemade colloidal silver in each ear.
Here’s what I did: I simply lay down on one side, and used an eye dropper to administer the three drops. Then I waited six to eight minutes and turned over and drained the colloidal silver into a tissue. Then I laid down on my other side and repeated the process in the other ear. Wow… …what a difference! No burning or stinging sensation whatsoever. In fact, it was remarkably soothing, instead. No perceptible hearing loss afterwards. And once more the budding cold was knocked out before it could fully take hold. Since that time I’ve used it successfully many, many times to stop fledgling colds from becoming full-blown colds.

Works great on children with symptoms of a fledgling cold, too!

Deworming with Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth

BUT MY PET TESTED NEGATIVE FOR WORMS

I am not sure which is worse – chemical wormers that aren’t effective OR the fact that fecal tests that indicate whether or not people or animals have worms are only 20 to 25% accurate!! 🙁 As advanced as our medical profession appears to be or tries to tell us they are, WHY on earth can they not tell us with at least 80% accuracy whether or not someone has worms??

Anyways, I gave up on traditional medicine over 15 years ago. I had picked up steamy fresh stools from 4 new rescues early one morning, drove them less than 10 minutes away to my mobile vet who immediately put the samples in her refrigerator. One of the stools belonged to a young wolf rescue who came here scooting her rear end acrossed the ground and another one actually had worms I could see in the stool sample I brought her. The following day, she called me to advise ALL 4 fecals were negative for worms! I found it outrageous that I paid $100 for those samples and I KNEW 2 of the wolf rescues HAD worms, yet the test results came up negative.

The vet made up 60cc’s of a liquid concoction of stuff that I was supposed to get down the throats of new wolf rescues who didn’t even know me yet?? HAHAHA! Best yet, I needed to do this without getting bit. The vet guessed at what worms they had…anyways, the situation failed miserably, tho I got at least 40 cc’s of this stuff into the scooting wolf rescue, but she continued to scoot anyways.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind spending money, but when I spend it, I want “accurate” answers or results. That shouldn’t be so hard, should it?

Thus, my non-toxic natural solution has been to simply feed food grade diatomaceous earth, 365 days/year to myself and my 100 animal guardians here. I started that just over 9 years ago and Lady Nikko no longer scoots acrossed her concrete floor! :o) PLUS, I don’t have to “stuff” it down her throat, I just put it in her food, like everyone else, and she eats it just fine. And it has always worked fabulously for incoming rescue kittens or puppies/dogs that have diarrhea, some with bloated bellies. Within 48 hours of daily DE consumption, stools are much firmer and pot bellies are eliminated.

WORMS AFFECTED BY DIATOMACEOUS EARTH:

Food grade DE eliminates roundworms, whipworms, pinworms, and hookworms within 7 days of being fed daily. Studies that advise this are on our DE FAQ page and elsewhere throughout the internet.

We always suggest feeding DE for a minimum of 30 days for roundworms, whipworms, or hookworms, due to their life cycle and needing to catch any hatching eggs, as DE does not kill eggs.

Lungworms, including hookworms that have migrated to the lungs for which upper respiratory symptoms would be seen – sneezing, coughing, nasal discharge, runny eyes, etc., take double the recommended daily DE dose for at least 90 days.

In South Africa we have a good quality Diatomaceous Earth available in many different sizes such as this very popular one :

 

FOOD GRADE DE & TAPEWORMS

When we take in feral rescue kittens that have freeways of fleas running around their tiny tummies, we put DE in their litter boxes AND I feed the DE internally 1 heaping tsps. daily for tiny 1 to 2# kittens as we KNOW they will have tapeworms. Immediately thereafter and for about 2 weeks, they emit 30 to 40 tiny tape segments on the back of their hind end fur. Little by little, there are fewer and fewer tape segments seen, their pot bellies are gone, and their stools are normal.

IF we tried to bathe these feral rescues, they would KILL us and likely never come near a human again. It is our goal to adopt them out, so bathing is not an option. Most people don’t want feral cats or kittens, most want friendly, social, healthy ones and the DE really helps us accomplish this painlessly.

We feed whole rabbits we buy from rabbitries that sell to the supermarket butchers to all our canines and felines. Rabbits are natural carriers of tapeworms. Before we began using DE in 1997, I would occasionally see tapes in the canines stools. I did the “messy” Juliette de Bairacli Levy worming – fasting 3 days prior to the full moon – castor oil and anti-parasitic herbs and foods. It took care of the tapes, but was a HUGE mess to clean up the diarrhea. Since using DE regularly the past 8 years in everyone’s food here, I have never seen a tape segment in anyone’s stool. 🙂

DE does need to be fed daily in adequate amounts – at least 30 to 45 days for tape worms and 90 days for lung worms.

USING FOOD GRADE DIATOMACEOUS EARTH FOR HUMANS

85 to 95% of the human population has worms and these worms are a major contributor to dis-ease. If your doctor said, here, take this chemical/poison wormer you give to your pet, would YOU take it?? If not, WHY on earth would you give it to your beloved companions??

The manufacturers recommended feeding rates for people is 1 heaping tablespoon daily. We take 2 tbsps. daily, simply because the RDA for 100 lb. dogs is 2 tbsps. and most of the humans here weigh 130 lbs. or more. Since DE won’t hurt us and we know the DE has to come in contact with worms/parasites to eliminate them, a little more is better than not enough.

I recommend starting with 1 tbsp. daily and increasing as desired, after you are certain you aren’t having heavy detox effects from the die off of worms.

Some human clients advise they use DE mixed with water and painted on their skin to eliminate parasites such as Helmith parasite infestations, Morgellon’s disease, etc., and consume food grade diatomaceous earth daily. Apparently, painting the DE on the skin makes it easier to see the parasite eggs, plus it dehydrates any insects on the skin.

FEEDING FOOD GRADE DIATOMACEOUS EARTH TO HORSES

If fecal counts are not zero for worms and ova after feeding DE for 30 days, increase the daily dose. Feeding too small a dose of DE will not give desired results. Increasing the dose, even if greater than the manufacturers recommendations, will not harm anyone. Some horses do fine on 1/2 cup of DE daily, others need a full cup. This reminds us, that all beings are different. So again, if the worm and ova counts are not zero, increase your daily dose.

Someadvise feeding 1/2 cup daily to most of their horses works great, but there are one or two who still test positive for strongyles. As everyone’s immune system is different – age, height, weight, mineral intake, etc., some just need a little more to take care of the problem.

HOW WE FEED FOOD GRADE DIATOMACEOUS EARTH TO SICK PETS OR THOSE WITH WORM INFESTATIONS

Thankfully, natural DE is not a “poison”, but a natural method of eliminating parasites by dehydrating them. Since parasites are a major cause of dis-ease in everyone – human, plants, and animals, as well as the other great benefits of feeding natural DE, we immediately feed DE to all rescues or client animals (infested or not, as most often they have parasite issues and the DE will help strengthen their immune systems, get them healthier more quickly, detox heavy metals, provide 15 minerals, and eliminate any worms they may have). Our DE feeding protocol for worm infestations can be given once or twice per day as follows:

  • Kittens – 1/2 to 1 teaspoon
  • Cats – 2 teaspoons twice/day
  • Puppies less than 10 lbs. – 1/2 to 1 teaspoon
  • Puppies 10 to 19 lbs. – 2 teaspoons
  • Dogs 20 to 50 lbs. – 1 to 1.5 tablespoons
  • Dogs 50 to 100 lbs. – 2 tablespoons
  • Dogs 100+ lbs. – 3 to 4 tablespoons
  • Cattle, Dairy Cows, & Hogs – 2% of dry feed ration & Free Choice
  • Chickens – 5% in feed & Free Choice
  • Goats & Sheep – 2-3 tbsps. per 100#’s of body weight & Free Choice
  • Horses – 1 to 2 cups in daily ration
  • *Humans – 2 to 3 heaping tablespoons daily (1 tbsp. AM, 1 tbsp. PM)

For puppies and kittens who are eating on their own, it is really easy to feed them food grade diatomaceous earth by mixing the DE in a small amount of raw goats milk (or whatever milk you prefer), yogurt, or cottage cheese.

Just remember, DE has to come in contact with the worm/parasite to kill it within 24 to 72 hours. Once you start worming with DE, do NOT stop the daily DE for at least 3 weeks. IF you start one day and forget for 3 days, the infestation and dead dying worms which emit bacteria, toxins, ammonia, etc. can cause toxic overload, which can make animals or people sicker.

Anyways, you can feed too little, but you can’t feed too much DE (of course, no one is going to feed a 50# bag to a canine, horse, or kitten in one day – okay, so there might be someone out there that would try it…). The recommended feeding rates on my website are what the manufacturer recommends. Personally, if I KNOW I’m dealing with an infestation in a new rescue, I ALWAYS feed more than the recommended dose for the first 3 to 4 weeks, because I don’t want to have to deal with the dis-ease worm loads can cause, nor the diarrhea, etc.

A study done by ACRES, USA, Inc. advised that after 12 months of storage, the food grade diatomaceous earth treated material had 15 insects, compared to 4884 for malathion and 16,994 for untreated grain.

MORE REASONS TO FEED FOOD GRADE DIATOMACEOUS EARTH TO YOUNG ANIMALS & PETS

Feeding DE to young pets – kittens, puppies, birds, goats, etc. as soon as they start eating on their own has shown to help prevent stool eating, dirt eating, rock eating, coccidia and giardia. Since Codex DE eliminates intestinal worms and provides 15 vital minerals, it helps keep the immune system stronger and healthier. There is no easier way to assure healthier, happy, radiant furry and feathered family members. Of course, feeding Species Appropriate Nutritionhelps, as does researching information about Animal Vaccines and considering fewer of these toxins being injected into the body.

WHY FEED DIATOMACEOUS EARTH 365 DAYS A YEAR?

We use food grade diatomaceous earth (aka DE) daily, 365 days/year for numerous reasons. The animal and human health benefits food grade diatomaceous earth provides are outstanding.

Since DE does double duty – inside the gut and then outside in the stool, it makes sense/cents to just feed it 365 days/year. It keeps fly loads down and can help eliminate them completely if fed regularly and used on the grounds, makes stools smell less, and sweeps bacteria and heavy metals out of the body. Plus of course, it eliminates internal worms and parasites which will lower feed and vet bills and help prevent disease.

It is our belief that worms and parasites are a major cause of all disease. ALL cancer and other dis-eased patients have worms. Therefore, by feeding food grade diatomaceous earth in adequate quantities daily, we know we have NO worms and therefore at least seventy percent of the chance of getting diseased goes right out the window.

Dandelion root – cancer remedy?

Everyone Has This Plant But NOBODY Knows That It Makes Cancer Cells Disintegrate Within 48 Hours
See the source image

 

Back in 2009, a group of Canadian researchers from the University of Windsor in Ontario started investigating an abundant weed as a potential cure for cancer.

It all started when an oncologist came across something quite interesting with some cancer patients.  Believe it or not, the plant we are talking about is the common dandelion!

A post-doctoral fellow at the University of Windsor named Pamela Ovadje has done an extensive work on the topic. She dealt with the anti-cancer properties of dandelion and similar extracts.

According to Ovadje,

“We had information from an oncologist, a collaborator here in Windsor, who had patients that showed improvement after taking dandelion root tea. And so, with a phone call, we decided to start studying what was in this tea that made patients respond to it, so we started digging up dandelions.”

She was quite suspicious in the beginning, but not because it was an all-natural source. “I figured dandelions are everywhere, and if there was something to it, people would have found this out already, “– she explained.

We should be glad to hear that the researchers have started conducting studies on dandelion root extract and its effects on cancer, as the results are more than amazing!

“Since the commencement of this project, we have been able to successfully assess the effect of a simple water extract of dandelion root in various human cancer cell types in the lab and we have observed its effectiveness against human T-cell leukemia, chronic myelomonocytic leukemia, and pancreatic and colon cancers, with no toxicity to non-cancer cells. Furthermore, these efficacy studies have been confirmed in animal models (mice) that have been transplanted with human colon cancer cells.” (Source)

Dandelion root extract was approved for human trials in February 2015. Now, it is in Phase 1 trials for end-stage blood-related cancers, such as leukemia and lymphoma.

According to Dr. Siyaram Pandey, professor of chemistry and biochemistry at the University of Windsor and principal research investigator for the project, dandelion root extract has quite a “good potential” to cause a death of cancer cells.

How Does it Work?

This extract causes cancer cells to go through apoptosis, a natural cell process where a cell activates an intracellular death program because it isn`t needed anymore. In brief, dandelion root extract causes the cancer cell to “commit suicide” without affecting the healthy ones.

Two cells perform apoptosis which is far better than chemotherapy drugs which kill one healthy cell for every 5 to 10 cancer cell, the dandelion extract.

It is important to mention that the concentration of this extract is much higher than the one which is currently available. Even though trials are still underway, this extract may be the future of cancer treatment!

5 Mindfulness Practices for a Happier Life

We at BIO-SIL loved this and have permission to share it with you!

 

 

Apart from our diets, the thoughts and emotions we experience each day has a huge impact on our health.  So here at *Kommunitea, we have put together several simple steps that one can begin to implement immediately for a more mindful life

 

Image result for beautiful life images

 

Mindfulness, put simply, is nothing more than present moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment

 

The key to mindfulness is in it’s acceptance of what is happening in the immediate now without any judgement.

When we practice mindfulness our awareness tunes into the present moment, rather than rehashing the past or imagining the future.

The cultivation of mindfulness allows you to be in a state of here and now, and that is where your power lies.

Because it is only in the now that we truly realize our potential to shape our lives.

 

With Greater awareness, we make better choices, build stronger relationships, and re-focus our attention on what we can affect, and what we can let go of

 

Cultivate the witness

This is perhaps the most powerful and most transformative aspect of mindfulness. If done correctly it is essentially the only mindfulness technique you will ever need.

Recognizing the habitual thought patterns that keep you from experiencing the present moment is at it’s core, what mindfulness is all about.

Trying to stop thoughts and clearing the mind is futile. Rather the key is to separate yourself from your thoughts, not allowing yourself to be carried off by them.

See them for what they are – clouds passing by in the sky. Learn to observe your thoughts without judging them.

The goal is not to change or manipulate the situation; it is open acceptance for whatever is happening in the immediate now. The feelings of the body, your emotions, your thoughts – learn to observe them as if there were another person observing them from afar.

Mastery of this will leave your life transformed. However, don’t be fooled. It is simple, but far from easy.

 

An Attitude of Gratitude

It is impossible to be both in a state of gratitude and fear at the same time.

When we are grateful for something we begin to make space for happiness and joy. Those who are happiest in this world are the most grateful for their lot in life.

Cultivate a state of gratitude for absolutely everything going on in your life. Say thank you when you have a warm shower in the morning. Thank you that you didn’t have to go without food today. Thank you for the jerk-off of a boss you have, for you are learning to handle difficult people.

There is always something to be grateful for;  you just need to look.

 

Gratitude and happiness are qualities that must be cultivated from within. Spend enough time practicing this habit and it will eventually become your default setting

 

The happiness advantage

If you can’t make yourself happy, try making someone else happy.

If you are to shy or self conscious, start by just wishing the people you interact with throughout the day to be happy.

Choose one person and imagine them to be in a state of bliss. Declare their happiness as the most important thing in the world.

See them realizing all that they have in this world to be happy for.

You won’t believe the impact an exercise like this will have on your own happiness.

 

Mindful eating

Eating is a sacred act.

For seven consecutive days eat at least one meal per day in complete silence.

Not being distracted by phones, not eating while rushing towards a meeting.

Sit, stop and chew mindfully. Focus on each and every bite.

For most this will be highly uncomfortable. We are so conditioned to consume food as quickly as possible.

But this exercise is crucial to reconnecting with a part of our being we have lost touch with.

 

Breathing

Let your breath become your anchor to the present. Whenever difficulties arrive sit with the breath.

Don’t try and deny how you are feeling.

Learn to breathe slowly and deliberately, flooding your body with much needed oxygen.

If you can take a breath, you have something to be grateful for. You are still alive. You can now go and deal with whatever needs to be done.

If the circumstance is out of your control, accept this and move on.

Don’t allow worry and guilt to become a part of you if you can’t take action to change a situation.

Your breath is the key to a more mindful life. Learn to breath properly.

Sincerely,
-Calvin

Lyme Disease – simple help

Stevia Kills Lyme Disease Pathogen

Better Than Antibiotics, Study Confirms

 

With summer upon us the risk of encountering ticks, the pesky critters responsible for the spread of Lyme disease, is on the rise.

Lyme disease is an insidious and complicated disease to treat, both for the allopathic medical world and alternative medical practitioners, due to its rapid shape-shifting abilities.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), roughly 300,000 people have diagnosed with Lyme disease each year in the United States alone. While ticks exist in half of all US counties, Lyme disease cases are concentrated in the Northeast and upper Midwest, with 14 states accounting for over 96% of cases reported to CDC.

The CDC says that while 80-90% of reported cases are considered resolved with the treatment of antibiotics, 10-20% of patients go on to develop the chronic form, which is a persistent and sometimes devastating illness that can harm any organ of the body, including the brain and the nervous system.

The culprit behind Lyme disease is Borrelia burgdorferi, a bacterial infection proven to respond most effectively to antibiotics doxycycline and amoxicillin.

However, Borrelia burgdorferi can exist in morphological forms, including spirochetes, spheroplast (or L-form), round bodies, and biofilms.  When conditions are considered unfavorable for the bacteria, it has the ability to morph into the dormant round body, then hide in a biofilm form. When conditions are favorable, however, it can shift back to its spirochete form.

While conventional antibiotics can treat some forms of the disease, they’re not effective in treating ALL forms, often times failing to produce a long-term cure.

But, new research suggests a long-term treatment may be just around the corner.

A recent study published in the European Journal of Microbiology and Immunology revealed that stevia, a sweetener, and sugar substitute, has been found to terminate late state or chronic Lyme disease.

 

Image result for stevia

 

The study, conducted by researchers from the Department of Biology and Environmental Science at the University of New Haven in West Haven, Connecticut, found that stevia whole leaf extract, as an individual agent, was an effective treatment against all known morphological forms of B. burgdorferi.

For the study, researchers examined the antimicrobial effect of four stevia leaf extracts in comparison to individual antibiotics (doxycycline, cefoperazone, daptomycin), as well as a combination of the three.

Lab tests revealed that while one extract was more potent than the others, likely due to its growing conditions and the agricultural practices utilized, all extracts were effective in treating all forms of the bacteria.

In fact, the stevia extract was proven to work against even the most antibiotic-resistant of the bacteria, known as the biofilm. The individual antibiotics, on the other hand, actually increased the biofilm.

While researchers acknowledge that the results need more investigation and clinical trials to corroborate the finding, they’re hoping these results indicate we’re one step closer to finding an effective treatment for even the most persistent forms of Lyme disease.
