Apples: Yet Another “Perfect” Food?

Apples: Yet Another “Perfect” Food? | Health and Wellness | Scoop.it
Apples contain numerous beneficial compounds that protect against illness and disease. The fruit is one of many must-have superfoods.

Fiber found within apples is known as pectin. This fiber is able to lower cholesterol levels, stabilize blood sugar, and help ward off diabetes and insulin resistance. Like most high-fiber foods, the pectin in apples also helps fill you up, making you feel full for a longer period and discouraging overeating.

Another powerful compound in apples is the flavonoid quercetin. This antioxidant is found particularly concentrated in apple peels, where it gives the apple its rich color. It’s a natural anti-inflammatory and a natural antihistamine that has been found to combat issues like cancer, high blood pressure, stroke, and much more.

Water-soluble polyphenols are often found in apples as well. These are another form of powerful antioxidants with numerous benefits. As reported by Natural News, “Diets high in polyphenols are associated with lower cancer rates, better heart health and enhanced immune function.”

The power of honey and cinnamon, when taken together ("super!!!")

The power of honey and cinnamon, when taken together ("super!!!") | Health and Wellness | Scoop.it

Great information!! Cinnamon and Honey...! Drug companies won't like this one getting around. Facts on Honey and Cinnamon:


It is found that a mix of honey and cinnamon cures most diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also note honey as very effective medicine for all kinds of diseases. Honey can be used without side effects which is also a plus.Today's science says that even though honey is sweet, when it is taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm even diabetic patients. Researched by western scientists:

HEART DISEASES: Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, put it on toast instead of jelly and jam and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol and could potentially save one from heart attack. Also, even if you have already had an attack studies show you could be kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of cinnamon honey strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as one ages the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and the veins.

ARTHRITIS: Arthritis patients can benefit by taking one cup of hot water with two tablespoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. When taken daily even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week (out of the 200 people so treated) practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain -- and within a month, most all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis now started walking without pain.

BLADDER INFECTIONS: Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder....who knew?

CHOLESTEROL: Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water given to a cholesterol patient was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, when taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol-could be cured. According to information received in the said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.

COLDS: Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and, clear the sinuses, and it's delicious too!

UPSET STOMACH: Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also is said to clear stomach ulcers from its root.

GAS: According to the studies done in India and Japan, it is revealed that when Honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.

IMMUNE SYSTEM: Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacterial and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of Honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles (where DNA is contained) to fight bacterial and viral diseases.

INDIGESTION: Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food is eaten relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals

INFLUENZA: A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural 'Ingredient' which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.

LONGEVITY: Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Use four teaspoons of honey, one teaspoon of cinnamon powder, and three cups of boiling water to make a tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Life spans increase and even a 100 year old will start performing the chores of a 20-year-old.

RASPY OR SORE THROAT: When throat has a tickle or is raspy, take one tablespoon of honey and sip until gone. Repeat every three hours until throat is without symptoms.

PIMPLES: Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste. Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it off the next morning with warm water. When done daily for two weeks, it removes all pimples from the root.

SKIN INFECTIONS:Applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin Infections.

WEIGHT LOSS:Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast and on an empty stomach, and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup of water. When taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.

CANCER: Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder three times a day for one month.

FATIGUE: Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts are more alert and flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, even when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, when taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M., the vitality of the body increases within a week.

BAD BREATH: People of South America, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water first thing in the morning so their breath stays fresh throughout the day.

HEARING LOSS: Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal parts restores hearing.

How much to take? 1/2 teaspoonful of ground cinnamon with two tablespoonfuls of honey. Just lick it. First thing in the morning.

Arun Shrivastava's comment, July 5, 2013 7:51 AM
The safest way to obtain pure honey in India is to buy from the guys who remove honey from beehives. We often call them if a large hive develops around our home and they normally share 50% of the yield.

Eating food containing even a little nicotine, such as peppers and tomatoes, may reduce the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease, U.S. researchers say.

The effects were found in persons with little or no use of cigarettes.

Ayurvedic Herbs Treat Brain and Lung Cancers with up to 90% Success

Arun Shrivastava's curator insight, May 31, 2013 11:59 PM

I have posted many articles on healing your body and letting your body cure itself of degenerative diseases. This article suggests that Ayurvedic herbs treat brain and lung cancers with 90% success rate.

 

There are riders though. Just herbs alone or in combination with other vitamins and minerals may not lead to cures. One needs to change one's lifestyle and mindset. I firmly believe that most patients faced with degenerative conditions sink into a feeling of dependency. That generates all sorts of negative thoughts. One must take full responsibility for one's body and health. Only then doctors can aid the healing process.

 

The second rider is that just as majority of allopathic doctors firmly believe in molecular theory of disease, similarly many Ayurvedic doctors believe that they have a panecea for everything. Under today's commercial  pressures, they do promise more than they can achieve. That's why, one must take full responsibility for one's health.
