The Treatment of Poliomyelitis and Other Virus Diseases with Vitamin C Fred R. Klenner, M.D. 1949

Arun Shrivastava's insight:

This article was sent by Dr. Ian Dettman whose lab produces C Vitamin of highest purity for intravenous administration. It is by Dr Klenner [published 1949] who perhaps worked out the right dosing level.

 

He clarifies that C Vit can "truthfully be designated as the antitoxic and antiviral vitamin." The anti toxic activity of C Vit was demonstrated by treating a 4 year old bitten by poisonous moccasin with IV Vit C. The kid recovered within 45 minutes.

 

And the article gives the dosing levels for treating various viral and bacterial infections.

 

It is important to note that dosing level is vital.

GERALD POLLACK: Electrically Structured Water, Part 1 | EU 2013

In this lecture at the 2013 Electric Universe Conference, Dr. Jerry Pollack, a professor in the bio-engineering department of the University of Washington, discusses new insights into structured water garnered in his lab during the past year. 

 

Water has a fourth state, says Dr. Pollack, in addition to frozen, liquid and vapor. He shows how that state was found in his laboratory, and hints at the possibilities that open as we learn to recognize and use that state...

Cancer is not a Disease - It's a Survival Mechanism (Book Excerpt)

Cancer is not a Disease - It's a Survival Mechanism (Book Excerpt) | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it
Cancer is not a Disease - It's a Survival Mechanism (Book Excerpt)
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

"People from all backgrounds and occupations can have cancer. However, if you  dare look behind the mask of its physical symptoms, such as the type, appearance  and behavior of a cancerous tumor, you will find that cancer is not as  coincidental or unpredictable as it seems to be."

 

And further, " Cancer is but one of the many possible ways the body forces you to alter the way  you see and treat yourself, including your physical body. You may either make  out cancer to be something dreadful that leaves you victimized and powerless or  see it as an opportunity to stand up for yourself, your values, and  self-respect. This inevitably brings up the subject of spiritual health, which I  believe plays at least as important a role in cancer as physical and emotional  reasons do."

 

Which does not mean that one spends hours reading the Bible or the Koran or the Geeta. The essence is to keep your mind free of negative thoughts and see oneself as part of the wider world.

TOILETOLOGY: The Toilet Museum

TOILETOLOGY: The Toilet Museum | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

TOILETOLOGY-the science of toilets.

 

This is shitty serious stuff. If one can't shit in a clean, envigorating and spiritually uplifting environment, the brain goes fuzzy.

 

I have known Bindeswari Pathak for many years...the Bihari Brahman who swore to remove dry toilets and the practice of carrying excreta by the untouchables. He did succeed to some extent but the practice is still prevalent in many parts. 

 

His important contribution is not only that he raised the science of toiletology to the level of serious concern but also created a Museum of Toilet in Delhi. The Museum displays hundreds of toilets from the time before the French Revolution to now. Rare pieces. I spent an entire day with Pathak ji back in 1996 and saw the GREAT TOILET MUSEUM, perhaps the world's only one.  

 

What happened next is even more interesting.

Tulsi Plant (Holy Basil) Found to Remove Fluoride from Water

Tulsi Plant (Holy Basil) Found to Remove Fluoride from Water | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it
A plant called Tulsi, or Holy Basil, has been found to remove toxic fluoride from drinking water, thereby supporting the health of your pineal gland.
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Basically Tulsi is a good way to purify water too. Leave 8-10 leaves in your normal water pot for 8 hours and use it for drinking purpose.

 

My fear is that since a large number of people use fluoride toothpaste and sodium fluoride is added toall brands of Lever company and nearly all local brands, it'd be good idea to use Tulsi water.

Lecture at Delhi Part I - Rajiv Dixit

Facebook page : http://www.facebook.com/RajivDixitOriginal Official website : http://www.rajivdixit.com/ http://www.rajivdixit.in/ Wikipidea : http://en.wiki...
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Rajiv Dixit died young. He was a one man army exposing the corrupt, the Multinational Corporations and especially Britain's unbriddled loot of India not only of physical wealth but thousands of years of medical, surgical and intellectual wealth.

 

In this talk Rajiv Dixit talks of how surgeons used to come to India to learn complex surgical procedures. In a BBC programme, many British surgeons confirmed that the instruments used for plastic surgery thousands of years ago are still used by surgeons worldwide and that these have not been improved upon.

 

This lecture is in Hindi and I don't know if any English version exists.

 

It is worth noting that there were roughly 1200 full fledged medical schools in India established centuries before we had any contact with Europeans. And British doctors used to come here to learn surgery. 

 

I was reluctant to reveal this lest I be blamed for some sort of jingoism but the truth is that our medical and surgical system has not been improved upon by modern westerm medicine. Rather, western medicine negates the fundamental belief that the only purpose of medical science is to heal. It has no other purpose. If western medicine kills, it has no place in any civilized society. That science is spurious and that science should be declared worthless and those who practice it should be treated as insane people, social enemies.

Eating a Healthy Diet Actually Saves You Money? PROMISE: 'Today I Will' | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it
Can eating a #healthy #diet actually save you money? http://t.co/oJuTf1hFDp http://t.co/jFUUZmfHgt

Via leedobbins
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

This is so true and yet people ignore this simple solution to our health problems. We are so fortunate in India that we have hundreds of varieties of grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, roots, stems, barks, leaves...and we all use some of these in our everyday meals. And our lands can produce heaps and heaps of food and yet over 50% of us are malnourished and facing serious health problems.

 

Our kids have being vaccinated when there is no need for vaccination, no need for expensive modern medical care and for the rich medical insurance. We lived a very healthy life 50 years ago and if we take some hard decisions we can easily go back to the basics of good food, nutrious foods and good health.

 

Wanna make a start? Dump canola oil, the so-called "healthy oil"...if at all you wish to use oil, use local mustard oil, Ghee, local white butter, coconut oil, sesame seed oil....so many. From the time Lever Bros introduced DALDA to today when worst criminal food multinational corporations have entered India, they have created a health disaster.

Eating healthy seems like it's expensive, but it can save money on your grocery bill now and in doctors bills later on in life. The key is to eat what you buy and not waste food.

Danielle Schaeffer's curator insight, April 9, 2013 8:47 AM

It's not only healthier to eat food from your own garden, gardening is also good for your health too.  Growing your own food can save you a lot of money and increase your healt too.

Almost everything is right about this this article except that sprouted Moong beans should be accompanied with red Chana [also sprouted]. That's twice as powerful as Moong alone.

From Autism to Anorexia, It's All About the Gut | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it
Whether you suffer with a chronic illness, psychiatric disorder or psychological condition, the first thing to check is your belly. That's because “All diseases begin in the gut,” according to the GAPS Diet creator Dr.
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

So the post-modernists are rediscovering the importance of nutrition; good for them but time is slipping by. 

 

Good Ayurvedic or Homeopathic, and certainly the naturopaths I know of, ask a few key questions such as: Do you eat well? Do you feel hungry? Do you sleep well? Is your sleep restful? How much water do you drink? These are the normal starting questions before they go into isolating specific health problems. 

 

The doctors practising Ayurved and Naturopathy  also deeply believe in colonics. That is cleaning up of the digestive tract by administering enema. These simple, low cost solutions to complex health problems and they work.

The Nature of Cancer by Ernst T. Krebbs

Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Dr Krebs one of the many memorable lines: "So in 1974, the uninformed, the unimaginative and some of the illiterate are concerned with what to them is a preposterous idea that by eating seed of fruit you can prevent a disease that carries a mortality rate almost as high as that once carried by pernicious Anemia. But scientific truth isn't dependent upon credibility or lack of it. The scientific reality either is or isn't. And this is the scientific reality that the seeds of all common fruits (except citrus)contain Vitamin B17, an anti cancer vitamin. If we ingest proper quantities for these vitamin either in the pure form or through ingesting the nitrilosidic foods we will be able to prevent this decease just as surely as we are able to prevent Scurvy by the use of vitamin C or Pernicious Anemia by the use of vitamin B12."

Nutrient Density Explained: Dr. Joel Fuhrman

Nutrient Density Explained: Dr. Joel Fuhrman | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it
Dr. Joel Fuhrman breaks down the highest nutrient per calorie foods. He provides a list of the most nutrient dense foods that we should all be aware of.  
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Long time ago, I was discussing with my Guru and friend [Stevey] nutrition-dense foods and I found that it is actually cheaper than the normal foods we eat with the added benefit that one eats less, feel more satisfied and more energetic. 

 

In simple terms: 50% raw food [sprouts, salad, ground seeds (my favourite ones are flax and linseed), about 50-60 grams of brown rice, medium bowlful of dal, and 75-80 grams of lightly cooked green veggies and as much spinach as I can eat. Perhaps once a week river fish and strictly once a week, a typical British breakfast of sausage, bacon, poached eggs and beans on toast.I am completely off sugar for the past 20-25 years and take very little salt.  

 

Last night reviewing the RDA published by the Indian Council of Medical Research, I found that their recommendation is inadequate for all age groups.

 

Just try and explore "power foods". If you eat nutrition-dense foods, you will eat less, feel more sated, and more energetic....and you will get fewer bouts of cold and runny nose.

Research Proving Vitamin C’s Therapeutic Value in 200+ Diseases

Research Proving Vitamin C’s Therapeutic Value in 200+ Diseases | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it

Vitamin C is generally considered to be an important “nutrient,” but its perceived value usually ends there. Only rarely does the public (and the medical profession) glimpse its true potential in the prevention and treatment of disease — and this because, by legal definition (in the US), only FDA-approved drugs can prevent, treat and cure disease.

 

This does not mean, however, that essential nutrients like Vitamin C cannot in fact prevent and treat disease, i.e. only because it is illegal to speak truthfully about something, doesn’t mean that that something isn’t true.


Via Sepp Hasslberger
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Vitamin C is perhaps the best option in preventive care and certainly a proven treatment method. From treating lethal snake bite to treating cancer, it has never failed if administered in appropriate dose.

Sepp Hasslberger's curator insight, May 27, 2013 3:44 PM

This isn't true only in the US. Medical laws all over the "civilized" world forbid promoting a food as medicine. 

Only the proprietary chemicals pharma produces are eligible to cure or prevent ... insane in view of the documented facts.

Accidental find shows Vitamin C kills tuberculosis – The Express Tribune

Accidental find shows Vitamin C kills tuberculosis – The Express Tribune | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it
In 2011, 8.7 millio­n people fell ill with TB and 1.4 millio­n died, says WHO.
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

This is a remarkable find.

“Even more surprisingly… when we left out the TB drug isoniazid and just had Vitamin C alone, we discovered that Vitamin C kills tuberculosis.”

The team next tested the vitamin on drug resistant strains of TB, with the same outcome.

In the lab tests, the bacteria never developed resistance to Vitamin C — “almost like the dream drug”, Jacobs said in a video released by the college."

 

Essentially TB can be treated with just high dose of Vitamin C. It also means that regular dose of C  Vit can prevent TB infection in vulnerable groups.

 

Unfortunatemy there is a huge TB eradication programme going on in India with direct involvement of WHO and Pharmaceutical firms. I have not seen any remarkable result of this intervention from any part of India.

Magnesium's Importance Far Greater Than Previously Imagined

Magnesium's Importance Far Greater Than Previously Imagined | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it
GreenMedInfo December 5th 2012 By: Sayer Ji, Founder Calcium deficiency is a common nutritional concern, but how many folks consider the vital importance of magnesium in human health and disease?

 

New research published in the journal BMC Bioinformatics indicates that magnesium's role in human health and disease is far more significant and complicated than previously imagined.

 

While it is well known that all living things require magnesium, and that it is found in over 300 enzymes in the human body, including those enzymes utilizing or synthesizing ATP (the molecular unit of currency for energy transfer), the new study titled, "3,751 magnesium binding sites have been detected on human proteins," indicates that a deficiency of magnesium may profoundly affect a far wider range of biological structures than previously understood.

 

The proteome, or entire set of proteins expressed by the human genome, contains well over 100,000 distinct protein structures, despite the fact that there are believed to be only 20,300 protein-coding genes in the human genome.

 

The discovery of the "magneseome," as its being called, adds additional complexity to the picture, indicating that the presence or absence of adequate levels of this basic mineral may epigenetically alter the expression and behavior of the proteins in our body, thereby altering the course of both health and disease.

Most people know that calciul deficiency causes seriously affects bone density but how many actually know that calcium absorption requires the presence of magnesium in the ratio of two to one [Calcium:Magnesium]

 

This is very important article for us in India because none of the calcium supplements contains magnesium in the appropriate ratio and other supplements too are highly deficient in magnesium.

Russia Ban’s The Use Of Microwave Ovens

Russia Ban’s The Use Of Microwave Ovens | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

http://worldtruth.tv/russia-bans-the-use-of-microwave-ovens/

Do you see the connection?

 

In Russia, microwave ovens were banned in 1976 because of their negative health consequences as many studies were conducted on their use. The ban was lifted after Perestroika in the early 90’s.

Here are some of their findings on microwaving food:

1. Microwaved foods lose 60 ~ 90% of their nutritional value and it also accelerates the structural disintegration of food.

2. Microwaving creates cancer-causing agents within milk and cereals.

3. Microwaving alters elemental food-substances, causing digestive disorders.

4. Microwaving alters food chemistry which can lead to malfunctions in the lymphatic system and degeneration of the body’s ability to protect itself against cancerous growths.

5. Microwaved foods lead to a higher percentage of cancerous cells in the bloodstream.

 

Please don't give your children microwaved food. Get rid of it or keep it for emergency. 

 

Other uses are better: like disinfecting your panty but what a waste of money for that.
