Glowing with Salt

“Now You Can Take Advantage of Even More

Glowing Benefits From Himalayan Salt…”

 

Discover This Soothing, Decorative Way to Help Refreshen and

Beautify the Air in Areas of Your Home

 

 

Every day the miners make their long, slow journey… down 1,500 meters (4,921 feet) deep underground, beneath the Himalayan foothills.

Their mission is to bring forth one of our planet’s most potent minerals… a mineral formed over many thousands of years ago when light and energy from the sun dried up the primal ocean.

The amazing thing… despite spending years deep within the Himalayan earth doing back-breaking work every day, the miners are incredibly happy.

How could this be?

In fact, word has it that the people working these mineral mines couldn’t be happier.

When I first heard this, I found it quite hard to believe. Everyone has heard about the hazards of mining… particularly, the risks coal miners face every day they go underground.

So, what’s different about these mines? Could there be something in the air?

How This Pure Potent Mineral Provides Rejuvenation Benefits

Since the beginning of recorded history, the beneficial properties of salt have been well known and documented. Early civilizations greatly valued salt, and used it as a trading currency as well as a preservative for food.

And generations ago, people regularly turned to salt water and salt mines for many reasons.

For years, many European countries have used salt mines and hot salt springs to promote a sense of rejuvenation.

People rest and rejuvenate in salt mines and caves (in spa-like ambiance in many cases), for periods of time to help aid their mood and overall sense of calm.

 

 

This type of rejuvenation in salt mines and caves is common.

People travel from all over the world to visit salt mines like the ones found in the Himalayas, Austria, and Germany. In Germany, the hot salt springs are so revered, companies often send overworked employees there to rejuvenate.

Why are the salt mines so beneficial?

Quite simply… the very dry, fresh environment of a salt mine is key.

Well… even if you’re not able to travel to Asia or Europe to take advantage of salt mines, you can still take advantage of salt to help freshen and beautify the air you breathe.

The solution involves pure Himalayan crystal salt…… the same type of salt Himalayan miners go deep into the earth to uncover.

 

Before we discover more about this unique and very decorative solution, let’s mine deeper into…

 How Negative Ions Impact the Air You Breathe

Ever breathe and experience the air around a thunderous waterfall… on a serene mountain top… at a pulsating seashore… or after a wild thunderstorm? I’m sure you have.

Remember how fresh the air felt and how easy it was for you to breathe?

Well, what you experienced was likely the result of negative ions.

See, the forces of nature through phenomena like rainstorms, waterfalls, lightning, sunlight, ocean waves, and wind, create negative ions.

Prior to a thunderstorm, you can feel the build up of tension in the air – the positive ions in the air are reaching their peak.

Once the storm hits, the air produces electrical charges in the atmosphere and rain falls. The resulting oxygen-rich air bursts with negative ions. And once the storm passes, you can feel the sensation of calm and clarity in the air.

The rush of negative ions helps neutralize and balance the positive ions. Many published articles and scientific studies report how negative ions in the air can have positive effects. One demonstration of that is how they potentially increase the growth rate of certain plants.

In most of these studies, sophisticated negative ion generators were used in controlled group environments – not something you can readily recreate in your own home.

But the studies certainly give you a sense of the power of negative ions and their potential for cleansing the air you breathe.

As I suggested above, there is something you can do on a smaller scale using Himalayan crystal salt to freshen and beautify your own indoor air.

So, what can you do in your home or workplace today to start enhancing the air you breathe? Here are…

Eleven Common Sense Ways to Improve Your Indoor Air

home air purifier

It’s obviously very important for your health to breathe clean fresh air.

And some of your highest exposure to polluted air is within an area directly under your control… your home.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), on average we spend 69.54% of our time indoors at home. When you add indoor workplace time into the mix, you could spend over 90% of your time indoors… with some estimates even as high as 96.89%.

So, with all this time spent indoors, common sense dictates that you’ll want to refresh the air you breathe.

Here’s a simple 11-point checklist that goes a long ways toward helping you improve the air you breathe in your own home or workplace…

  1. Bring in some nature – First step for you is to bring in some plants. Plants help contribute to your improved air quality by removing certain chemicals in the air.
  1. Don’t allow smoking inside – Seems pretty obvious, but second-hand smoke can create serious health issues for everyone in your home.
  1. Circulate refreshing air – This is not always easily done in extreme hot or cold climates. But simply opening up windows on opposite walls for cross ventilation for a few minutes a day can provide you with a dramatic reduction in indoor air pollution
  1. Take off your shoes – Bringing in dirt, dust, and other pollutants from outside could impact the quality of your indoor air. It’s best to remove your shoes completely and not wear around indoors.
  1. Regularly clean and replace furnace and air filters – This is an area that typically gets neglected. However, it’s a critical item to address, because it can have a profound impact on your air quality.
  1. Use and clean ventilating fans often – Plus, make sure these fans vent to the outside and run them appropriately (don’t leave on all the time as they will siphon warm air out of your house).
  1. Avoid using toxic cleaning products – Scrutinize cleaning product labels.If you search long enough, you’ll find non-toxic alternatives to common cleansers.
  1. Vacuum and dust regularly – Don’t skimp on your vacuum. You might want to try a bag-less filter model that doesn’t blow fine dirt and dust back into your air.
  1. Store toxic solutions and chemicals outside – Check the back of your storage areas and underneath your sink. You may be shocked what you’ll find that should not be kept indoors.
  1. Manage your pets – Things like shedding hair and cat litter can add to your indoor air pollution. Anything you can do outdoors will only help improve your air quality.
  1. Consider using an air purifier – A quality air purifier can help remove indoor pollutants from the air you breathe. You can check my site for recommendations on home, office, auto and personal air purifiers.

But there’s more than just indoor air pollution from chemicals, pet dander, dust, and smoke…

There’s other forms of air pollution you may not even be aware of and this is where Himalayan crystal salt could really help improve your indoor air.

Warning: Electronic Devices in Your Home Could be Robbing You of Better Air Quality

Due to the electronic age, most of us live and work in environments dominated by electronics – giant HD televisions, computer monitors, cell phones, PDAs, etc.

While actively using these electronic devices, invisible electromagnetic frequency waves bombard your body.

Terms used to define this type of air pollution include “electro-smog” and “electronic air pollution.”

Whatever you call it, this is serious invisible pollution of your air.

himalayan salt lamps

While watching television or working on your computer, your body could be exposed to frequency vibrations 20 times higher and faster than your own brainwaves. Frequency vibrations your body simply isn’t used to.

Excessive amounts of positively charged ions like this can potentially cause you…

  • Increased nervousness…
  • Added bodily stress…
  • Annoying sleep interruptions…
  • Lapses in concentration…
  • Increased free radical accumulation in your body   

There are many ways to counteract these impacts to your body… like making sure you take plenty of breaks when using electronic equipment… and getting away from the device to grab some fresh air, even if for a brief period of time.

Something else you can do to help offset excessive frequency vibrations while you’re actually using an electronic device is to use beautiful decorative lamps, called crystal salt lamps.

Coupled with air purifiers, these lamps can help you enjoy fresh air in selective areas of your home.

Hard to believe?

Well, not if you understand the amazing spiritual benefits of pure Himalayan crystal salt.

Natural Action of Crystal Salt Lamps

The basic premise behind a salt lamp is to help beautify and refresh your indoor air and provide an attractive soothing light in your home.

Many people obtain salt lamps for their beauty alone… and I can certainly see why from my own personal experience… these lamps are stunningly attractive.

If you’re looking to add an intriguing conversation piece to your home, crystal salt lamps come in many soothing colors and shapes, sure to please every decorating style.

 

How to Optimize Lamp Placement in Your Home

One of the biggest challenges with crystal salt lamps is their limited range.

You can’t simply place a single crystal salt lamp just anywhere in your home and expect to promote freshness, beauty and serenity throughout your entire house… it doesn’t work that way.

But you can place a few lamps in selected areas where you spend the most time… family room… home office… bedroom, etc.

In addition to lamps, there’s something else you can do to further enhance these qualities…

Now There’s Another Way to Bring the Benefits of Himalayan Crystal Salt Into Your Home or Office

There’s nothing quite like the soft, incandescent flicker of a candle.

Whether you delight in dining by candlelight or savor their soothing, warm glow while you work or read, candles have long graced just about every room in homes.

Now you can enjoy yet another benefit – specifically from a very special type of candle holder.

And their beautiful rich hues of pinks and oranges bring feelings of soothing comfort and support, positively enhancing your mood.

Himalayan salt crystal candle holders come in two sizes: single candle or three-candle size.

Simply drop one or three tea light candles (depending on the candle holder) into your Himalayan salt crystal candle holder and the warmth from the candle reacts with the natural crystal salt.

There’s another challenge you face when choosing a crystal salt lamp or candle holder, one you may not be aware of…

Beware of Fakes and Copycats

Like just about everything in today’s world, you need to know how to distinguish a true crystal salt lamp and candle holder from all the pretenders.

Many lamp manufacturers use salt crystals that do not come from the Himalayan region. These salt lamps and candle holders don’t necessarily possess the physical properties required for you to benefit from the air quality improvements we’ve talked about.

I’ve been very outspoken about the importance of using only pure Himalayan crystal salt as a food… this same importance carries over to crystal salt lamps.

And that’s why I located a superb source of crystal salt lamps and candle holders that are…

  • Made only from pure Himalayan salt crystals
  • Sourced from selective mines where room-and-pillar manual methods of mining are still performed to preserve the quality of the salt crystals
  • Meticulously produced with excellent transparency to provide vibrant, rich color to enhance their soothing glow
  • Available in distinctive, decorative colors and shapes to fit your décor needs
  • Unsurpassed in quality and high standards right down to the electrical cord (UL approved) that comes with your lamp

You probably know by now how selective I am on products I offer to you. And my Himalayan Salt Lamps and Candle Holders are no exception.

Finding Quality Crystal Salt Can Be a Minefield for You Unless…

Clearly, one of the most important criteria for selecting any product I offer you… it must be of the highest quality.

In fact, it may be the most important selection factor after my team and I evaluate the potential benefits for you.

How valuable is a product with phenomenal benefits if it can’t be delivered on a consistent, high-quality basis?

Not valuable at all… agreed?

And that’s why I made sure my team did their homework to ensure that my Himalayan Salt Lampsand Candle Holdersonly come from a high-quality manufacturer… no exceptions allowed.

Here are key quality practices this manufacturer practices for sourcing the best crystal salt and for producing superior lamps and candle holders…

  • Employs mine workers and craftspeople that are masters in their trade – and never uses children or underage workers to cut costs
  • Mines manually by hand to preserve optimal energy and frequency of salt crystals
  • Avoids using dynamite and other mass extraction methods that impact the quality of the salt crystals and risk human safety
  • Never substitutes cheap rock salt crystal from salt mines outside the Himalayan region
  • Differentiates itself from other manufacturers by meticulously inspecting, testing, and selecting only quality lamps prior to shipment – rejects are sold to other companies not as concerned about high quality standards

I would be surprised if you could find higher quality crystal salt lamps and candle holders than my Himalayan Salt Lamps and Candle Holders … if you can, by all means buy them.  But remember, there are many cheap, low-quality imitations out there that will likely disappoint you.

I’ve taken the guess work out of trying to mine through all the confusion out there. If quality crystal salt lamps and candle holders are what you’re after, you need to look no further than my Himalayan Salt Lamps and Candle Holders.

Brighten Up Your Home with Glowing Salt Crystals

By now, you should have a pretty good idea why Himalayan crystal salt miners are so happy.

You may not be able to reap all the enhanced-air benefits these miners receive from working in the salt mines day-after-day. But it is possible for you to improve small select areas of your home.

Plus, the soothing beauty of my Himalayan Salt Lamps and Candle Holders will fit in with almost any of your décor. And to provide you flexibility in colors and shapes, I’m offering you 4 different crystal salt lamps and candle holders to choose from…

  • Natural Himalayan Salt Lamp – A very naturally-shaped and decorative lamp, pink in color – electromagnetic wavelengths of pink color promote your sense of partnership and love. (size and color varies)
  • Himalayan Salt Lamp Carved Bowl – A uniquely-shaped and strikingly attractive lamp, peach-orange in color – soothing electromagnetic wavelengths of orange color support your feeling of security and can have a positive effect in your mood. This is my favorite!
  • Carved Himalayan Salt 3-Tea Light Candle Holder – Rectangular-shaped, peach-orange in color, holds 3 tea light candles. Adding a warm, flickering glow to any room, makes a stunning centerpiece for your dining table or fireplace mantle.
  • Carved Himalayan Salt Single Tea Light Candle Holder – Casts a lovely flickering glow showcasing its beautiful hues of peach and orange.  The perfect small gift for any occasion.

Even if you’re not planning on using crystal salt lamps and candle holders to help refresh and beautify the air in specific areas of your home, they’ll still provide glowing and soothing light… attractive in any room.

But I strongly urge you to take action and follow the “11 Common Sense Ways to Improve Your Indoor Air” detailed above… and include my Himalayan Salt Lampsand Candle Holders in that enhancement process.

Why not refresh and beautify the indoor air you breathe and enjoy the stunning shapes and colors of my Himalayan Salt Lamps and Candle Holders at the same time?

TEN WAYS TO USE COLLOIDAL SILVER’S AMAZING HEALING ABILITIES

 

NaturalNews – PF Louis) Colloidal silver consists of silver atoms suspended in distilled ion-less water. The particles of silver are small enough to penetrate on a cellular level and destroy pathogens of all types, including bacteria, fungal spores, parasites, and viruses.

Not only does silver get rid of pathogens, it helps promote rapid healing of the tissues infected or destroyed. Most burn centers use various forms of silver and silver soaked bandaging for burn victims.

You can buy colloidal silver online or in good health food stores or make your own cheaply and easily. Colloidal silver has many applications and is easy to apply. It has no adverse side effects. It leaves beneficial bacteria intact. Reports of argyria (skin turning blue) are greatly exaggerated.

The Medical Mafia has a tendency to blow up rare incidents of minor adverse effects from natural remedies and blow them up as scare tactics while ignoring the hundreds of thousands of annual adverse side effects from correctly prescribed pharmaceuticals.

Ten ways to use colloidal silver for self healing    "Inverser le diabète AUJOURD'HUI" - Votre Cure de diabète - Site Officiel

1) You can spray it onto burns to prevent infections and promote faster healing without scarring.

2) You can also spray or dab it onto ringworm, boils, herpes sores, and warts for faster healing.

3) If you’re having bronchial problems or walking pneumonia, you can put some colloidal silver in a nebulizer and breathe it into your bronchial area and lungs directly.

4) Small amounts taken daily as a tonic will give what some call a second immune system to guard against flues and colds. Easy and inexpensive if you make if you make your own.

5) Colloidal silver drops can be used for ear infections without any harmful side effects. Some use it for eye and nasal infections as well. Perhaps it can be injected anally with an enema bulb to help cleanse the colon.

6) It can be applied topically for vaginal yeast infections or oral thrush (yeast infection). Could be useful for chronic jock itch as well.

7) Colloidal silver can be used by pregnant women to assist fetal development and easier delivery of the newborn child.

8) It can be taken early with the onset of a cold, flu, or bronchitis to get over it quickly without harming beneficial bacteria. Antibiotics kill good and bad bacteria.

9) Colloidal silver can be used successfully to combat MRSA infections. MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) is a staph infection that can be fatal and is now resistant to antibiotics. It usually occurs during hospital stays, but has become rampant enough to originate outside hospitals.

10) There has been some success using colloidal silver with AIDS patients. It adds a layer of needed additional immunity while destroying existing pathogens.

 

 

More about colloidal silver

Early 20th Century western medicine used silver as a prime antibiotic and anti-fungal until the 1930s. Then antibiotics became a major source of Big Pharma revenue.

As more and more antibiotics were created, the pathogenic microbes began evolving into resistant strains to them. The health dangers imposed by antibiotics by destroying friendly gut flora needed for digestion and immunity were disregarded.

Antibiotic use lowers immunity by destroying the good bacteria along with the bad. Lately, some fluoroquinolone based antibiotics have even permanently and painfully crippled those who had been prescribed them.

Since silver seems to act by stifling the enzymes pathogens use for survival, pathogens are unable to develop resistance to them. Fortunately, alternative medicine has re-discovered colloidal silver for healing all sorts of ailments. A few years ago, the EU banned colloidal silver sales.

Overcome Magnesium Deficiency

Magnesium Deficiency can cause:

Leg cramps, Insomnia, Muscle pain, Anxiety, High blood pressure, Type II Diabetes, Fatigue, Migraines, Osteoporosis

Source: Dr Axe

 

Image result for magnesium images clipart

Magnesium is arguably the most important mineral in the body, which is why magnesium deficiency can be such an issue.

According to Norman Shealy, MD, Ph.D, an American neurosurgeon and a pioneer in pain medicine, “Every known illness is associated with a magnesium deficiency and it’s the missing cure to many diseases.” Not only does magnesium help regulate calcium, potassium and sodium, but it’s essential for cellular health and a critical component of over 300 biochemical functions in the body.

Do You Have a Magnesium Deficiency?

 

*Take note: Only 1 percent of magnesium in your body is in your bloodstream, so often you can have a deficiency, and it would not even be discovered by a common blood test

___________________________________________________________________________

Magnesium Deficiency Symptoms
Many people may be magnesium deficient and not even know it. Here are some key symptoms to look out for that could indicate if you are deficient:

*Leg Cramps

Seventy percent of adults and 7 percent of children experience leg cramps on a regular basis. Turns out, leg cramps can more than a nuisance — they can also be downright excruciating! Because of magnesium’s role in neuromuscular signals and muscle contraction, researchers have observed that magnesium deficiency is often to blame.
More and more health care professionals are prescribing magnesium supplements to help their patients. Restless leg syndrome is another warning sign of a magnesium deficiency. To overcome both leg cramps and restless leg syndrome, you will want to increase your intake of both magnesium and potassium.

*Insomnia

Magnesium deficiency is often a precursor to sleep disorders, such as anxiety, hyperactivity and restlessness. It’s been suggested that this is because magnesium is vital for GABA function, an inhibitory neurotransmitter known to “calm” the brain and promote relaxation. (3)
Taking around 400 milligrams of magnesium before bed or with dinner is the best time of day to take the supplement. Also, adding in magnesium-rich foods during dinner — like nutrition-packed spinach — may help.

 

 

A video to watch for further information :

 

 

*Muscle Pain/Fibromyalgia

A study published in Magnesium Research examined the role magnesium plays in fibromyalgia symptoms, and it uncovered that increasing magnesium consumption reduced pain and tenderness and also improved immune blood markers. (4)
Oftentimes linked to autoimmune disorders, this research should encourage fibromyalgia patients because it highlights the systemic effects that magnesium supplements have on the body.

*Anxiety

As magnesium deficiency can affect the central nervous system, more specifically the GABA cycle in the body, its side effects can include irritability and nervousness. As the deficiency worsens, it causes high levels of anxiety and, in severe cases, depression and hallucinations.
In fact, magnesium has been shown to help calm the body, the muscles and help improve mood. It’s a vital mineral for overall mood. One of the things I’ve recommended to patients over time with anxiety is taking magnesium on a daily basis, and they’ve seen great results.
Magnesium is needed for every cell function from the gut to the brain, so it’s no wonder that it affects so many systems.

*High Blood Pressure

Magnesium works partnered with calcium to support proper blood pressure and protect the heart. So when you are magnesium-deficient, often you are also low in calcium and tend toward hypertension or high blood pressure.
A study with 241,378 participants published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition uncovered that a diet high in magnesium foods could reduce the risk of a stroke by 8 percent. This is profound considering that hypertension causes 50 percent of ischemic strokes in the world.

*Type II Diabetes

One of the four main causes of magnesium deficiency is type II diabetes, but it’s also a common symptom. U.K. researchers, for example, uncovered that of the 1,452 adults they examined, low magnesium levels were 10 times more common with new diabetics and 8.6 times more common with known diabetics.
As expected from this data, diets rich in magnesium has been shown to significantly lower the risk of type 2 diabetes because of magnesium’s role in sugar metabolism. Another study discovered that the simple addition of magnesium supplementation (100 milligrams/day) lowered the risk of diabetes by 15 percent!

*Fatigue

Low energy, weakness and fatigue are common symptoms of magnesium deficiency. Most chronic fatigue syndrome patients are also magnesium-deficient. The University of Maryland Medical Center reports that 300–1,000 milligrams of magnesium per day can help, but you do also want to be careful, as too much magnesium can also cause diarrhea. (9)
If you experience this side effect, you can simply reduce your dosage a little until the side effect subsides.

*Migraine Headaches

Magnesium deficiency has been linked to migraine headaches due to its importance in balancing neurotransmitters in the body. Double-blind, placebo-controlled studies have shown that 360–600 milligrams of magnesium daily can reduce the frequency of migraine headaches by up to 42 percent.

*Osteoporosis

The National Institute of Health reports that, “The average person’s body contains about 25 grams of magnesium, and about half of that is in the bones.” This is important to realize, especially for the elderly, who are at risk of bone weakening.
Thankfully, there’s hope! A study published in Biology Trace Element Research uncovered that supplementing with magnesium slowed the development of osteoporosis “significantly” after just 30 days. In addition to taking magnesium supplement, you will also want to consider getting more vitamin D3 and K2 to naturally build bone density.

Help at hand:

Magnesium Chloride Oil — this form of magnesium is in oil form. It can pass through the skin and into the body. For those who struggle with digestive issues like malabsorption, this is the best form of magnesium to take.

Exceptionally Effective Essiac Tea

ESSIAC TEA:

POWERFUL NATURAL HERBS TO FIGHT AGAINST MAN-MADE DISEASES AND CANCER

 Source:

 Juicing for Health

 

I have been using Essiac tea for more than a decade now, although not for cancer treatment. I was initially introduced to Essiac tea benefits to treat endometriosis—a painful disorder of the uterus lining. And later found out that it is an excellent herbal tea for cancer treatment, and so much more!

 

A BRIEF HISTORY ABOUT ESSIAC HERBAL TREATMENT

Essiac is the name of the founder spelled backwards. Rene Caisse (pronounced “reen case“) was a Canadian nurse who discovered a natural herbal formula that comprised four powerful herbs.

 

In 1922, Caisse had learned of these herbs from a woman who recovered from breast cancer. This woman shared that an old medicine man (from the Ojibwa Group People) had healed her using some herbs that he had taught her how to brew.

Two years later, Caisse’s aunt developed stomach and liver cancer and the doctors had given her only six months left to live. Caisse administered the herbal tea treatment and her aunt lived another 21 years with no recurrence of cancer.

Caisse and her aunt’s physician, Dr R.O. Fisher had then gotten together to experiment the herbal treatment further. Caisse gave up her nursing career and devoted all her time to Essiac research. Although there were many stumbling blocks and opposition from mainstream medicine, they had since healed thousands more seriously-ill cancer patients and various other diseases.

In 1959, Caisse met Dr Charles Brusch, John F. Kennedy’s personal physician. It’s a long story here with Dr Brusch, but to cut the story short … Later in life, Dr Brusch developed cancer and cured it with Essiac. Together, Rene Caisse and Dr Brusch has perfected this powerful, natural cancer treatment, called the Brusch-Essiac Tea.

In 1977, Caisse gave the secret formula to a Canadian company. The Canadian government allowed clinical studies on the formula’s safety and effectiveness. In 1982, the Canadian government withdrew its permission and neither did the company get the USFDA’s approval

You can read more about the history of Rene Caisse and how to consume Essiac Tea in this book.

 

The Essiac Tea Herbal Blend

Since the 1980s, other companies have tried to duplicate the formula, marketing them as either identical, similar or improved. Although they don’t claim to treat or cure diseases, consumers who self-treat themselves with these various formulas have recovered from many serious health ailments.

While the basic components of this herbal tea are well known, the exact proportions of the herbs per Caisse’s original formula are largely not known. Be concerned, however, with the quality of the herbs and ensure that they are processed and marketed by responsible establishments.

The Essiac herbal blends (whether 4, 6 or 8 ingredients) have generally been reported to be beneficial for normalizing the body systems by cleansing the blood, purging toxins buildup, promoting cell repair, preventing cell mutation, and aiding in assimilation of the medicinal properties.

The original Essiac mixture consists of four ingredients: burdock root, sheep sorrel, slippery elm and Turkey (or Indian) rhubarb root.

The Brusch-Essiac Tea (improved) formula blend are composed of the same four herbs, plus four additional ingredients: watercress, blessed thistle, red clover and kelp. This formula was then entrusted to a nurse, Elaine Alexander—a health researcher—who produced Flor Essence.

THE ESSIAC TEA HERBAL INGREDIENTS

Let’s take a closer look at each one of the ingredients used in this powerful herbal blend.

Burdock Root (Arctium Lappa)

Other names: Beggar’s buttons, clotbur, cocklebur, hardock, turkey burseed, gobo root.

The bulk of Essiac Tea is Burdock Root. Burdock is a close relative to echinacea and dandelion, very well sought-after for its healing properties. This herb is often used:

  • to reduce cell mutation (prevents cancer)
  • to strengthen the immune system
  • as a tonic for the liver, kidneys and lungs
  • as a blood purifier to neutralize poisons in the blood
  • to detoxify the lymphatic system
  • to promote bile secretion for a healthy liver
  • as an infusion to rid ringworm, acne and rashes

 

Sheep Sorrel (Acetosella Vulgaris)

Other names: Dog-eared sorrel, field sorrel, red top sorrel.

Among all the ingredients, Sheep Sorrel is the main cancer-killing herb in the blend. It has a high amount of chlorophyll and is best used when young. This herb is used:

  • to reduce inflammation and break down tumors
  • as a diurectic for kidney cleansing
  • to detoxify the liver for blood cleansing
  • to improve intestinal and bowel functions
  • to protect and rebuild red blood cells
  • to strengthen cells walls and remove toxins from blood vessels
  • to reduce radiation and chromosome damage

 

Slippery Elm (Ulmus Fulva)

Other names: Red elm, moose elm, Indian elm.

The fibrous inner bark of Slippery Elm contains many healing properties, among them:

  • helps calm nervous and stomach problems
  • soothes inflamed colon and irritable bowel
  • eases sore throats and coughs
  • promotes detoxifying effect of the kidneys through urination
  • reduces swelling and internal bleeding
  • works as a natural laxative for cleansing of the gastrointestines

 

Turkey Rhubarb Root (Rheum Palmatum)

The root of Turkey Rhubarb has been used for centuries as a laxative and purging properties. This herb is used in varying amounts for different purposes:

  • to treat diarrhea and improve digestion
  • to restore the liver by cleansing and promoting bile flow
  • to reduce and shrink tumors
  • as an aid for burns, sores and skin breakouts
  • to regulate menstruation and normalize flow
  • to improve blood flow

 

The Four Additional Ingredients In Improved Formulas

Watercress is bitter and used to improve appetite and digestion. It is great for detoxifying the lungs and improve conditions such as asthma, cough and bronchitis. One of the key compounds in watercress is a substance called rhein that retards the growth of harmful bacteria, yeasts and parasites in the intestines.

Blessed thistle is often used by natural healers for detoxifying and supporting the gallbladder, lungs, kidneys, liver and the reproductive system. It helps to combat conditions such as jaundice, hepatitis, arthritis, respiratory problems, menstrual disorders, infections and many more!

Red clover is one of the richest sources of isoflavones that are known for their effectiveness in treating some forms fo cancer. Isoflavones prevent cells mutation and retards or destroy cancer cells.

Kelp is a sea vegetable that is a rich source of iodine, essential for healthy thyroid functions. It helps to normalize metabolism in cells, increase energy levels. Iodine is an important ingredient that many people are deficient in, and which can lead to many health problems.

 

WHAT ARE ESSIAC TEA BENEFITS AND CONDITIONS IT CAN TREAT?

The combination of these four powerful herbs gives a good cleansing to the blood, kidneys, liver, colon and reduces inflammation and tumors. That seems to address many modern diseases and ailments!

I worked with a company selling Essiac Tea and have personally seen and heard how Essiac Tea has been used to treat these conditions successfully:

  • Cysts, fibroids, benign tumors, mastitis
  • Endometriosis (my personal experience)
  • Normalized menstruation and improved flow
  • Chronic stomach and bowel problems
  • Reduced blood sugar levels in diabetics
  • AIDS and HIV blood counts have improved
  • Skin diseases such as acne, psoriasis and eczema
  • Work issues such as shingles, ringworm
  • Reduced inflammation and increased flexibility of joints
  • Increased energy levels and improved sleep quality
  • Various types of cancer

 

HOW TO USE ESSIAC TEA

Essiac Tea is taken orally and on an empty stomach. Nowadays, it comes in various forms: Capsules, soft gels, liquid extract, powder mix, tea blend or tea bags.

Of these many forms of the Essiac formula, I tend to favor the powder mix which means there is least processing. The herbs are dried, crushed and pulverized into powder form.  You brew this powder and consume all the herb particles, instead of filtering them through tea bags. Here’s a good recommendation of Essiac Tea in powder form.

 

How To Brew Essiac Tea

It’s a little work to brew the powdered mix, but it can keep refrigerated for up to two weeks, although I recommend to consume within a week.

  1. Fill a stainless steel pot (never use any aluminum vessel) with 16 ounces (about ½ liter) of distilled water(preferred) or spring water. Put on stove to boil.
  2. Add in 2 ounces of Essiac blend powder into the boiling water, turn down heat to simmer and cover with lid.
  3. Simmer for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, then remove from heat.
  4. Let sit with lid on, overnight (for 12 hours) at room temperature.
  5. Stir the tea and funnel the brewed tea into air-tight glass jars/bottles. Do not use plastic containers.
  6. Refrigerate and consume within 1-2 weeks.

 

How To Consume Brewed Essiac Tea

You may find differing instructions with different suppliers of the Essiac powder mix, but basically:

Shake up the jar as the powder may have settled to the bottom. Pour out about 3 ounces of the brewed tea into a cup, and add 3 ounces of distilled water (or spring water). Stir and drink. You can also drink the brewed tea without adding water but it is bitter.

 

Therapeutic Doses

It is recommended to drink Essiac tea on an empty stomach, about 30 minutes before food, or at least 2 hours after food.

  • For maintenance and minor ailments: Drink 2 ounces of tea twice a day.
  • For cancer and other serious ailments: Drink 3 ounces of tea up to three times a day

There is no side effects from taking Essiac tea. You may drink the tea daily until your test results return to normal and your health is completely restored. You may then decide if you want to continue a maintenance dose of 3 ounces daily.

 

ESSIAC TEA PRECAUTIONS

No matter how good this tea is said to be, it is not for everyone. Initial consumption may cause certain pain and healing reactions in some individuals. Tumors could appear to enlarge before they are broken down. Avoid if you have a brain tumor!

Essiac Tea cancer treatment may be effective for newly diagnosed cancer patients who do not have fast-growing cancer that has not spread significantly.

If you are an advanced cancer patient who has gone through chemotherapy, radiation or surgery, Essiac Tea should be consumed only as a supplemental protocol, and not as the primary cancer protocol.

If you are on any medications, do check with your doctor before consuming Essiac Tea.

Essiac Tea is potent and powerful. It is not recommended to be consumed by women who are trying to conceive, pregnant and nursing. It is also not recommended for children under the age of 12.

Prevention & Treatment of Vaccine Damages

Cruelty toward babies starts at birth. It really starts before birth but that is another tale. Many parents have heard horror stories, and have serious doubts about vaccinating. Even that first injection of vitamin K is not without risk and danger. This article is for parents in the situation where they are forced into a corner for one of many reasons and feel like they have to vaccinate their children.

Often one parent is against and the other for vaccination. In the context of Humane Pediatrics it is strongly advised to avoid vaccines altogether so as to avoid the threatening edifice of medical and health complications that can stem from them. It should be obvious to the humane among us that it is also to avoid a type of suffering we should not wish on our dearest enemies – that of having to deal with a vaccine-damaged child.

This chapter is also for adults who might have to take a vaccination to travel or for healthcare workers in hospitals and others in the military who are given little to no choice. You could find yourself someday with the army at the door and you better roll up your sleeve real quick and try to smile while you are freaking out.

Everyone should understand and know what can be done before, during and after vaccination to mitigate collateral damages, which are sometimes quite severe and much more frequent then federal health officials want you to know. Many parents have expressed fear of having their child become autistic, defective or neurologically damaged.

No one wants to put their child in harm’s way but powerful pharmaceutical interests have total control of the media and are able to literally herd 90 percent of the population into vaccination clinics. With the yearly flu vaccine the percentages are much less and there is mounting resistance to its insistence by the medical overlords who hang their pictures at the World Health Organization (WHO).

Certainly no parent wants to see their child go from healthy to physically or mentally handicap in a matter of months. And for sure no one wants to be in the place of a parent whose child turns blue in their arms and dies hours after receiving multiple vaccinations. Any harm suffered from vaccinesis a cruelty to heart, body, mind and soul. It is an attack of brutality and arrogance injected directly into the bloodstream with steel needles by people in white coats who will react quite violently if you refuse their vaccines. I have a name for this process – rape – chemical rape of a person’s or a child’s vulnerability.

Few independent studies have been conducted into their long-term side effects of vaccines administered to our children. The government says they are safe but we do not really know this; it’s just what we are told. It is just what they say and we are supposed to believe them. The information is out there, especially in the area of medicine and public health, that clearly demonstrates that those people in whom we put our trust cannot and should not be trusted. Institutionalized medicine is not about medicine anymore, it’s about money and power and hurting more people than it helps.

The deliberate injection of poisons into humans, mandated by public health officials and medical organizations and performed by all the doctors and nurses who follow them, is inhumane and immoral. Numerous toxins, including mercury and aluminum, are in most commonly administered vaccines. Some doctors are sounding the alarm and there is a chorus of warnings indicating that vaccine damages can lead to cases of autism, multiple sclerosis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, macrophagic myofasciitis, encephalitis, paralysis and neuropathies. The vast majority of the medical professionals, however, reject the notion of any potential toxicity in vaccines and freely administer them to children no matter what the consequence.

Cancer is thought by some to occasionally be initiated in children by vaccines and even the vitamin K injection[1] at birth is thought to be unnecessary and dangerous in this regard. The British Journal of Cancer published a report entitled “Factors Associated with Childhood Cancer”by J. Golding, et al in 1990, which indicated that universally administered IM vitamin K injections significantly increase our children’s chances of developing childhood cancer. The poisoning and destruction of the immune system starts in the first hours of life, even before they clobber the children with the dangerous hepatitis B vaccine several hours later. Here in Brazil, for instance, that vaccine has a megadose of thimerosal in it as does the yearly flu shot that is given all over the world.

That’s right these medical monsters from hell (you can find a good concentration of them at the WHO) are injecting people everywhere with organic mercury, a potent neurotoxin and we wonder why most people cannot think straight these days.

Don’t think there is anything to worry about? As of January 8, 2010, VAERS had received 7814 adverse event reports following 2009 monovalent H1N1 vaccination. Of the 7814 reports, 477 (6%) were reports that were classified as “serious” health events (defined as life-threatening or resulting in death). Among the 477 reports of serious health events, there were 33 reports of death. The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) reported that, “In New York, only one out of 40 doctors’ offices (2.5%) confirmed that they report a death or injury following vaccination.” That means 97.5% of vaccine-related deaths and disabilities go unreported there. Implications about the integrity of medical professionals aside (doctors are legally required to report serious adverse events), these findings suggest that vaccine deaths actually occurring each year may be well over 1,000.”

Taking Steps to Defend Your Loved Ones

There are steps you can take to minimize the damage if you have to take or give a vaccine to your children. If the government has its way it will force you to take vaccines whether you like it or not. It has already happened that parents in Maryland were forced to vaccinate their children, and men with guns were present where everyone was forced to gather to receive the shots.[2] So it is important to understand some basic information with regard to protecting your children.

Vaccines can send immune systems into overdrive and cause one’s inflammatory response to go haywire; our goal, in part, should be to direct attention to the body’s immune reaction. After vaccinations, T-helper lymphocytes have also been known to fall to levels seen in active AIDS patients, indicating a very real danger of immune system dysfunction following an injection of hostile chemicals directly into the blood.

According to Dr. Mohammed Al-Bayati,[3] “Damage to the immune system is rapidly reversible after removal of the true insulting agent or treatment of the true causes. Atrophy in the lymphoid tissue in people suffering from malnutrition has been known since 1925. Malnutrition causes severe atrophy in the thymus and lymphoid organs and impairs the function of the T-cells. These changes are reversible by feeding. The size of the thymus in malnourished children increased from 20% of normal to 107% of normal, following nine weeks of feeding.”

There are many factors that contribute to immune deficiency and destruction. The central denominator is the introduction of toxic chemical compounds into the body through foods laced with preservatives and pesticides, injections of highly toxic chemicals in the form of vaccines, and an incredible choice of toxic prescription drugs, all of which have serious side effects, and of course an increasing array of illegal drugs that are taken abusively. And this mentions nothing of the background pollution in both air and water. The environment, especially in cities, is quite abusive to our bodies.

To Minimize the Risk of Vaccine Damage

The first consideration is to not vaccinate at all. If you do decide to vaccinate your children (possibly because you have no choice), consider delaying it until your children are two years old or for as long as possible. Breastfeeding your children will make them stronger because infant formulas cannot compete with the nutritional profile of mother’s milk. If you do decide to vaccinate never do so when your child is sick. Make sure the shots do not have thimerosal (mercury) as a preservative. Space out the jabs and avoid multiple combinations. Also, give your child vitamin C supplements before and after the vaccines: 1000 mg four times a day. Immediately after injection (or as soon as you can), put an icepack on the site of the injection to block the immune reaction and continue this at home.

We certainly do not want to vaccinate when someone is suffering from heavy chemical exposures. When numerous metals are present in the body, they have a “synergistic toxicity.” Dr. Boyd Haley, professor and chair of the chemistry department at the University of Kentucky, performed a study on rats and found that the mortality rate of rats exposed to a small dose of mercury or aluminum killed only one rat in 100. However, when the rats were exposed to both mercury and aluminum at the same time, all 100 rats died – a 100% mortality rate.[4],[5]

Treatments

Dr. Archie Kalokerinos says, “There is no doubt in my mind (and this is based on long experience) that despite advice to the contrary it is not wise to administer vaccines to sick infants – including infants with ‘colds’. This is because, with infections (including ‘colds’), endotoxin is likely to be produced in the gut in excessive amounts, and liver detoxification processes are likely to be stressed. At first it was just a simple clinical observation. I observed that many infants, after they received routine vaccines like tetanus, diptheria, polio, whooping cough or whatever, became ill.

Some became extremely ill, and in fact some died. A third observation was that with some of these reactions that normally resulted in death, I found that I could reverse them by giving large amounts of vitamin C intramuscularly or intravenously. One would have expected, of course, that the authorities would take an interest in these observations that resulted in a dramatic drop in the death rate of infants in the area under my control, a very dramatic drop. But instead of taking an interest, their reaction was one of extreme hostility.”

The most important factor that affects zeta potential is pH.

Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda)

The lead medicinal in our protocol to mitigate vaccine damages, besides vitamin C, is sodium bicarbonate. It is an emergency room and intensive care medicine that can be used by anyone easily and cheaply by applying topically or orally. Though bicarbonate is not often indicated for children, in the special case of facing the onslaught of vaccines, (and in the case of airborne oil toxicity), baking soda becomes our best friend for it will help regulate blood pH and thus blood zeta potential, which is a measure of the health of the blood.

Oncologists know enough to give sodium bicarbonate when they give their patients chemotherapy because they know it has the effect of buffering the poisons. Baking soda will make toxic poisons less poisonous meaning they will do less harm to the body. Read my site and book Sodium Bicarbonate for much more information on one of the safest and most effective allopathic nutritional medicines.

Water Hydration

The second most important factor is hydration.

The blood is 80% water, thus hydration levels are extremely important in blood chemistry. Moderate dehydration, a 3-5% decrease in body weight due to fluid loss, is sufficient to result in a substantial decrease in strength and endurance because of the decrease in oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood signaling a drop in zeta potential. Pediatricians are sued for neglecting hydration issues more frequently than anything else because water is that crucial for eliminating toxic buildups in the body. Pure water is a medicine but doctors don’t want anyone to see that and this gets them in a whole lot of trouble.

Magnesium

There is nothing like magnesium to alleviate cellular stress and to keep things working in harmony even when chemical insults threaten, as they do when foreign chemicals are injected directly into the blood. Magnesium should also be taken before, during and after surgery for the same reasons. It stiffens up our defenses against stress of any type including emotional and mental duress. All physiological processes are compromised with nutritional deficiencies and the majority of children and adults are severely deficient in magnesium. Neurological decline comes with deficiencies in magnesium and iodine, and injected toxic threats become more dangerous when these basic minerals (including selenium which is important to neutralize mercury) are in short supply.

Super Nutrition

The best way to deal with vaccines and any other challenge to the body is to ensure that the body has everything it needs nutritionally. These needs are very broad and include 13 vitamins, more than 20 minerals, 2 essential fatty acids, 9 essential amino acids, a source of calories (includes protein, carbohydrates, and fats), a source of nucleic acids (especially RNA), water, oxygen, and sunlight. In addition, the body’s ability to detoxify unwanted substances by a variety of means, maintain proper acid/alkaline balance, produce optimal amounts of cellular energy (as ATP), and maintain a highly functional immune system are all crucial factors in remaining healthy after vaccine treatment.

There are a number of foods that help our bodies tolerate the effects of pollution and toxic poisoning. Eating lower on the food chain minimizes our chemical intake in general. Potent therapeutic foods offer a rich nutrient profile that deeply nourish our body and strengthens the immune system while supporting cardiovascular function, improving gastrointestinal and digestive health and enhancing natural cleansing and detoxification.

The secret is in getting your body so chemically unloaded and nutrient primed, that it heals itself.- Dr. Sherry Rogers

We need foods that are not declining in nutritional value. Foods low on the food chain fight the malnutrition that is gaining strength in the general population. Such foods stimulate important parts of the immune system – bone marrow stem cells, macrophages, T-cells and natural killer cells, spleen and thymus glands; all would have to show enhanced activity. Importantly these foods high in chlorophyll and magnesium have the ability to generate new blood cells as well as directly increase oxygen-carrying capacity.

There are a number of foods in this category with spirulina and chlorella sitting front and center on the list. Wheat, barley and alfalfa sprouts and juices also ring strong bells in this area of nutrient sources that will help us survive in the terrible age of toxicity that we are now in. Chemical injections (vaccines) only make matters worse so we need these foods in our diet no matter what.

The European Space Agency has chosen spirulina as one of the basic foods to be used on long space flights. I suggest to people that they take spirulina in the form of a product called Rejuvenate because it tastes so good, is easy to give children, and contains a whole lineup of superfoods combined magnificently.[6] Wheat and barley juices made naturally at home are wonderful and less expensive in this regard though tastes are not palatable for people and children who are not acclimated to these natural juices.

The Rejuvenate formulas that I recommend are based upon the research of Dr. Benjamin S. Frank who showed in extensive clinical trials and research studies that nucleic acids[7] are essential nutrients with benefits in terms of increased growth (especially muscle growth), greater endurance, positive effects on the cardiovascular system, greater lung capacity and easier breathing (i.e., better oxygen utilization) and even greater resistance to viruses.

Dr. Frank found that nucleic acids boost energy levels by significantly increasing production of the “high-energy” molecule ATP (adenosine triphosphate). The body requires the energy from ATP for many purposes, including cellular and tissue repair, metabolism, digestion, building a strong immune system, detoxification, and many other processes.

Dr. Russell Blaylock has some very interesting things to say about avoiding vaccine damages. “Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil supplements are potent immune suppressants. If you take high-dose EPA you will be more susceptible to infections since EPA is a powerful immune suppressant. However, in the case of an immune adjuvant reaction, you want to reduce it. Studies show that if you take EPA oil one hour before injecting a very powerful adjuvant called lipopolysaccharide (LPS), it would completely block the ability of the LPS to cause brain inflammation. Take a moderate dose of EPA every day, and more if needed, to tame a cytokine storm.”

Dr. Blaylock is very much aware of how a heightened nutritional profile helps reduce inflammatory cytokines. Flavonoids, vitamins E, D and C, zinc, magnesium, selenium and a multi-vitamin can help mitigate vaccine reactions and damage. He also recommends parsley and celery in a blender and drink eight ounces of this mixture twice a day. Dr. Blaylock says parsley is very high in a flavonoid called apigenin and celery is high in luteolin. Giving Rejuvenate to children provides everything in a concentrated form simplifying the treatment.

Conclusion

One has to know the nature of the threat to take evasive actions.

Veterinarian vaccines studies are extremely useful in helping us see how dangerous vaccines can be. Dr. Larry Glickman, who spearheaded the Purdue research into post-vaccination biochemical changes in dogs, wrote “Our ongoing studies of dogs show that following routine vaccination, there is a significant rise in the level of antibodies [8] dogs produce against their own tissues. Some of these antibodies have been shown to target the thyroid gland, connective tissue such as that found in the valves of the heart, red blood cells, DNA, etc.”

There are plenty of reasons to become familiar with the protocol discussed in this chapter. It is the same basic protocol I will be suggesting (with some important additions like activated charcoal) to be used in case of airborne oil toxicity. For the peoples of the third world (whose populations are increasingly being supplemented with the growing poor of the first world) who cannot afford superfoods, realize that by simply eating locally grown organic foods that have not been processed are huge steps in the right direction. The masses who are eating white rice, for instance, are much more deficient in magnesium than those eating whole rice. Eating fruits, nuts and beans with organic whole grain rice instead of our modern diet of processed foods is going to protect us all, including our children.

  • [1] The routine administration of Vitamin K to ‘all’ infants is not near as safe as medical authorities assure us though it cannot compare with the damage the hepatitis B vaccine is known to cause. Roche’s vitamin K product KONAKION contains ingredients such as phenol (carbolic acid — a poisonous substance distilled from coal tar), propylene glycol (derived from petroleum and used as an antifreeze and in hydraulic brake fluid) and acetic acid (an astringent antimicrobial agent that may drastically reduce the amount of natural vitamin K that would have otherwise been produced in the digestive tract). The study was a case-control study of 195 children with cancer born at either of two hospitals in Bristol, England, compared with 588 healthy children also born at these hospitals. One hospital predominantly gave vitamin K orally and the other intramuscularly. The authors found a nearly two-fold risk of leukemia in children who had received intramuscular vitamin K. These findings were extremely worrying. Golding calculated that the extra cases of leukemia caused by vitamin K injection could be as many as 980 in the UK alone. These results were supported by reports of the potential carcinogenicity of vitamin K from Israels et al, who suggested that low vitamin K levels in the newborn protect against the risk of mutations during a period of rapid cell growth and division. Compared to the hepatitis B the vitamin K shot is quite harmless, but it’s really just a matter of relativity. One attacks with phenol and propylene glycol and the other with recombined genetic material, aluminum, sodium chloride, disodium phosphate dehydrate, and sodium dihydrogen phosphate dihydrate.

Essential fats from either sprouted flax or chia seeds are included to optimize cell membrane function. Rice bran solubles are added to give a broad range of antioxidants. The Rejuvenate Plus formula has a complete coenzyme based multivitamin, high polyphenol and enzyme containing extract of vegetable sprouts, vegetable sources of proteins (rice, hemp, sprouts), lecithin for enhanced cell membrane and liver function, enzymes to enhance digestion of the nutrients, aloe vera for enhanced immunity and gut function, minerals from sea vegetables, taste enhancers that function as prebiotics, and herbs such as alfalfa grass and beet root juice powder, and ginger.

What this means and what has specifically been seen is that vaccinated dogs – “but not the non-vaccinated dogs”– were attacking their own fibronectin, which is involved in tissue repair, cell multiplication and growth, and differentiation between tissues and organs in a living organism. The vaccinated dogs also developed autoantibodies to laminin, which is involved in many cellular activities including the adhesion, spreading, differentiation, proliferation and movement of cells.

Joint Pain and Inflammation Help

TREATMENT OF YOUR JOINT PROBLEMS
wonderful feedback!

We take the freedom of movement for granted, until it becomes limited. The cause of this for many people comes in the form of arthritis, or the inflammation of one or more of your joints. There are two main kinds, osteo and rheumatoid, both of which affect the joint in different ways. Osteo arthritis is when the cartilage between bones wears down, until bone grates on bone. Rheumatoid is little less straightforward, being caused by an autoimmune disorder that causes inflammation of the synovial membrane (a soft tissue that protects joints in the body) and that can lead to bone loss. Whichever you experience, there are natural remedies for arthritis to manage the pain and ease the symptoms.

1. Turmeric & Ginger Tea
Turmeric and ginger are both anti-inflammatorys, and will help with oseto and rheumatoid arthritis. Turmeric in particular has gotten a lot of attention lately. Its active ingredient is something called curcumin, which is a powerful antioxidant. In addition, it lowers the levels of 2 enzymes responsible for causing inflammation (which is what we’re often fighting with arthritis.) You can take these in a capsule form or make a nice spicy tea to enjoy daily.

You will need…
-2 cups of water
-1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
-1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
-Honey to taste

Directions
Bring 2 cups of water to a boil, and had ½ teaspoon each ground ginger and ground turmeric. Reduce to a simmer and let it be for 10-15 minutes. Strain, add honey to taste, and enjoy twice daily. This yields 2 servings.

 

Pain and Inflammation Relief

Devil’s Claw Benefits for Pain & Inflammation

Devils claw benefits - Dr. AxeMany are rethinking their stance on traditional painkillers because of the many side effects of these medications. Instead, they’re choosing to relieve pain through natural methods. For people suffering from arthritis and other forms of joint or back pain, this is where devil’s claw benefits come in.Devil’s claw is one of the most frequently used home remedies for arthritis. But that’s not the only way devil’s claw benefits the body. (1) Like turmeric, devil’s claw serves as a natural anti-inflammatory. Like the South American root, cat’s claw, devil’s claw is used to relieve the symptoms of arthritis and digestive problems.It is also used alongside bromelain in some research as a way to relieve joint pain, particularly related to arthritis.Even if you’re not looking for a pain remedy, you may still be interested to know the other devil’s claw benefits scientists have discovered. For example, there is at least one early report that it may have anticancer potential.


 

What Is Devil’s Claw?

To discuss what it does, it’s important to understand what devil’s claw is. The term “devil’s claw” or “devil’s claw root” refers to Harpogophytum procumbens, a plant found in the Kalahari savanna of southern Africa, Madagascar and the Namibian steppes.

In supplement form, devil’s claw is derived from the dried roots of the plant. African and European traditional and folk doctors have prescribed devil’s claw for centuries to treat digestive ills, reduce fever, relieve pain and to treat certain pregnancy symptoms. (2)

Often, it is hypothesized that devil’s claw benefits originate from the valuable iridoid glucosides it contains, including harpagoside. Iridoids are anti-inflammatory compounds found mostly in plants and are bound to glucose molecules. This is why the whole compound is called an iridoid glucoside. (3) Devil’s claw root, according to the European Scientific Cooperative on Phytotherapy (ESCOP), should contain at least one percent harpagoside.

Devil’s claw also contains useful bioflavonoids and phytosterols, which are plant-based antioxidants with antispasmodic properties (which supports the use of this supplement for digestive problems).

France has approved the marketing of devil’s claw with a claim that it is “traditionally used for symptomatic relief of painful joint disorders.” ESCOP has also approved its use to treat “painful arthritis, tendonitis, loss of appetite and dyspepsia” (acid reflux).

Harpagophytum is literally translated as “hook plant” in Greek. Growing predominantly (and originally) in Africa, devil’s claw looks as if it is literally covered in hooks. The hooks actually cover the fruit of the plant, which allows it to catch on animal fur and therefore spread its seeds.

Other traditional uses of devil’s claw include boosting heart health, relieving gout symptoms, soothing heartburn and reducing back, chest and headache pain. (4)


Devil’s Claw Benefits

1. Arthritis Relief

The most extensively researched of use devil’s claw benefits is its ability to reduce osteoarthritis symptoms.

According to a Japanese study in 2010, devil’s claw (particularly the harpagoside compound) caused a significant reduction of arthritic inflammation in a group of mice. (5)

In general, devil’s claw is accepted by many medical professionals as a “supportive treatment of degenerative, painful rheumatism.” (6) Rheumatism, or rheumatic diseases, includes diagnoses such as osteoarthritis (from wear and tear), rheumatoid arthritis (an autoimmune condition), lupus, ankylosing spondylitis and Sjogren’s syndrome. All of these disorders are marked by chronic inflammation and usually joint, muscle and fibrous tissue pain.

When tested on patients with various rheumatic disorders, devil’s claw seems to significantly reduce pain in the hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee and back. In addition, the same study found that quality of life improved for most patients. In fact, 60 percent of whom were able to reduce or stop taking their other pain medications. (7)

Another uncontrolled trial found an improvement in pain ratings by over 22 percent and as high as 45 percent for various types of osteoarthritis pain. With only two minor adverse reactions (acid reflux and a “full” sensation) in 75 patients, the research here suggests devil’s claw extract may be beneficial for clinical treatment of arthritis, specifically of the hip or knee. (8)

In 2014, an observational study was conducted to investigate the efficacy of a supplement that includes devil’s claw, turmeric and bromelain on rheumatic pain. Results found all patients experienced a reduction in pain, especially chronic joint pain. Researchers discovered no side effects or withdrawal issues and find this three-plant complex to be a safe alternative to NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) for patients with degenerative joint disorders, such as osteoarthritis. (9)

In addition to reducing pain, it’s possible that devil’s claw benefits arthritis sufferers by preventing bone loss. Although tests thus far have taken place only in lab and animal tests, there are promising results that suggest devil’s claw prohibits bone loss in inflammatory osteoporosis. (10) These results are conflicting when it comes to hormonally activated osteoarthritis. (11)

2. Might Aid in Weight Loss

Interestingly, this anti-inflammatory root may also be a novel way to lose weight. A university study conducted in Ireland found devil’s claw can help to stop or slow ghrelin (known as the “hunger hormone”) production. (12) By reducing hunger pangs, those with overeating issues may find their appetites at a level closer to average, aiding their weight loss.

Another way devil’s claw may help those with obesity is by potentially helping to prevent weight-related atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) by the particular way it suppresses inflammation. (13)

3. Natural Painkiller

While it seems to be effective for arthritis pain, devil claw’s benefits for pain don’t stop there. Although it isn’t understood well, devil’s claw reduces inflammation and inflammatory pain in a variety of conditions, including acute (fast onset) pain, with few adverse effects in somewhere around 3 percent of patients. (14)

In an animal study, neuropathic pain (shooting or burning pain often the result of some type of nerve damage) and postoperative pain were reduced after 21 days of treatment with an extract of devil’s claw. (15)

Research conducted in 2001 found that devil’s claw extract given for a period of eight weeks helped to relieve chronic back pain and improve mobility in 117 patients — all of those evaluated within the study — for a period of at least six months. No serious side effects were recorded. (16)

Some sources also recommend using devil’s claw as a treatment for sciatic nerve pain, also referred to as sciatica. It should be noted, however, that no studies have been conducted on the efficacy of devil’s claw on sciatica at the time of this writing.

4. Potential Lymphoma Treatment?

While the research here is in its infancy, there is surprising evidence that devil’s claw may somehow help to impact follicular lymphoma.

In a cancer unit at a hospital in British Columbia, a doctor noticed a partial regression of one patient’s lymphoma after 10 months with no chemotherapy. The patient shared that he was taking two supplements, including devil’s claw. After hearing about this natural treatment, another patient in a support group with the first began taking devil’s claw, followed by a similar regression 11 months later, sustained for four years.

The doctor is careful here to draw conclusions, as a two-patient observation of regression is not solid scientific evidence that devil’s claw can treat or cure cancer. In some research, some 16 percent of lymphoma patients have spontaneous regression of their cancer. However, the physician found the timing curious enough to suggest more studies be done on the potential for devil’s claw to support cancer treatment for follicular lymphoma patients. (17)

Devils claw benefits - Dr. Axe5. Fights Chronic Inflammation

One of the reasons devil’s claw is so valuable is its ability to help reduce inflammation, which is at the root of most diseases.

Current research indicates that devil’s claw can help to inhibit tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha), a cytokine (cell-signaling protein) that is involved in the normal inflammation that occurs in the body as it regulates the immune system. (18)

This is significant because when TNF-alpha is overactivated, chronic inflammation can occur and lead to a variety of diseases. In fact, inhibition of TNF-alpha is a major subject of study in the prevention of inflammatory diseases such as rheumatic disease, psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). (19)

6. Rich in Antioxidants

Another basic way devil’s claw can help prevent disease is due to the many antioxidants it contains. According to The Institute of Biochemistry and Microbiology in Düsseldorf, Germany, devil’s claw is “particularly rich in water-soluble antioxidants.” (20)

In fact, some research suggests that some of the anti-inflammatory benefits of devil’s claw may actually be the result of these antioxidants because of the way they work hand-in-hand. (21)

7. May Aid in Digestion

Remember that I mentioned above how devil’s claw benefits include inhibition of TNF-alpha, which is a treatment consideration for inflammatory bowel disease? Inflammation has a great deal to do with digestion.

The antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties of devil’s claw may be useful as a supplementary treatment for these diseases, including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. (22)

8. Supports Kidney Health

Another underdeveloped area of study on devil’s claw benefits is the way it might help treat a group of kidney diseases known as glomerular diseases. These illnesses are inflammation-related and refer to diseases that injure the kidney’s tiny filters that clean the blood.

An extract of devil’s claw helped to suppress the formation of nitrites as the extract’s antioxidants acted in this lab test, suggesting to researchers that these extracts “may represent potential anti-inflammatory drugs in the treatment of glomerular inflammatory diseases.” (23)


The History of Devil’s Claw

The exact origin of devil’s claw is unknown, although it is native to southern Africa and found originally in Namibia, Botswana, South Africa, Zambia, Madagascar and Zimbabwe. It was first used medicinally in Europe in 1953 to treat arthritis, liver problems, kidney and bladder issues, appetite problems and seasonal allergies.

Devil’s claw is known by a variety of folk names, including grapple plant, wood spider and harpago. These creative monikers refer to the small “hooks” on the fruit of the plant.


How to Find and Use Devil’s Claw

To reap devil’s claw benefits, the roots of the devil’s claw plant are dried and then packaged in capsule or tablet form, or used to create a liquid extract or ointment to use on the skin. Some people make devil’s claw tea to take advantage of the various effects it’s said to have.

As with all supplements, ensure you purchase devil’s claw from a reputable company with transparent ingredients and supplement facts listed. If you choose to try using it to reduce pain, you may want to try both internal (capsule/tablet) and external (ointment) forms to find what works best for you.


Possible Side Effects/Caution

There is a lack of information regarding potential side effects of devil’s claw. Most sources suggest avoiding it if you are pregnant or breastfeeding because the results are unknown. (24)

According to WebMD, people with heart problems, hypertension, low blood pressure, diabetes, gallstones or peptic ulcer disease should avoid devil’s claw. There is at least some evidence that it could affect these conditions. So if you take devil’s claw and have one of these conditions, you should be closely monitored by your health care provider.

Anecdotal reports suggest devil’s claw could increase the production of stomach acid, so if you suffer from chronic heartburn, it may be a factor to consider.

One case report in 2015 found systemic hypertension (high blood pressure) caused in a patient taking devil’s claw. (25)

Certain medications could potentially interact with devil’s claw, including medications changed by the liver, because devil’s claw may slow the liver’s breakdown of these substances. The clotting drug warfarin (brand names include Coumadin and Jantoven) may also be affected by devil’s claw.

Other medications that may interact in minor ways with devil’s claw include P-glycoprotein substrates, H2-blockers and proton pump inhibitors (PPIs).


Final Thoughts

  • Devil’s claw is a plant found in parts of Africa. It’s used as a natural remedy for a variety of disorders.
  • One of the iridoid glucosides in devil’s claw, known as harpagoside, is the focus of much of the research into devil’s claw benefits. Other compounds are also responsible for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
  • A fairly large body of research has been done on the ability of devil’s claw to relieve arthritis pain. Results show that it likely does relieve this pain.
  • Devil’s claw benefits may also include weight management, reducing chronic inflammation and preventing oxidative stress.
  • Devil’s claw benefits those with many types of chronic pain. Plus it has been found to be particularly effective against back pain.
  • Some less-researched possible benefits of devil’s claw include: treatment for follicular lymphoma; prevention of inflammation-induced bone loss in arthritis; and prevention or treatment of certain inflammatory kidney diseases known as glomerular diseases.
  • Devil’s claw does not generally have serious side effects. But limited evidence of its safety means you should always take it (and any supplement) under the supervision of your physician.
  • It’s possible devil’s claw may interact with certain medications. Consult your doctor before starting devil’s claw if you take other medications regularly.
