Healing Hands... Bio-magnets that cure..

  Many healers have the ability to send energy through their hands, in such an  intensity others can actually feel it. I'm talking about Bio-Magnetism or Mesmerism. No doubt it works, hé, I'm doing this for decades already and how can one deny the results of these treatments..! I'm aware of the different approach of the Magnetiseur but who cares when his health is at stake...? Same goes for Acupuncture.

  Now how can this be done...? How can a person radiate such a power..?? I learned the techniques, without knowing it, already in the Karate class. Concentration, Breathing, Self confidence and a Healthy body will do the trick. 

  Breathing is an important ingredient to achieve your goal. Then centralize the energy, bricks and rocks can be broken with the correct technique. With an inner preparation it must be possible to move object: telekinesis,( I never succeeded in doing such), to destruct: ( which I had some talents for, even without Karate, LOL) or to cure, now that seemed to be my thing...! 

 After some time I managed to master this healing chapter, this is absolutely mind over matter.

 Often painful shoulders, sour backs and other physical harm came to my hands, and I can say 9 patients out of 10 could do their thing again after one of my healings, no shit. A gentle touch seemed to be enough to make pains disappear. Most of the times however I didn't even have to touch the patient. That's where I learned about Magnetizing, Mesmerism, that kinda things, and it worked...!

  A well trained martial artist is able to break stones with his bare hands, or to kill instantly by finger-touch only. This is not just physical power, most of it is 'power of the mind', this mental strength is beyond imagination and can be used not only to destroy or kill, but also to build or to heal. Yes, I can break stones and break my fall without getting hurt.
But it is much more fun to fix broken ribs or to cure where regular doctors failed...   

A scientific approach even explains many of it.
 It's all electricity. 
When your brains want your hands to make a certain move, an electric signal runs tru the nerves (and veins).

  The soul is like a magnetic field. You can't see it but it's there...!!....the 'control' systems in our body all work with electric pulses. A small current, generated in the brain, runs through the nerves and let things happen. Every move we make starts with a command from our soul, just a thought is enough to make our hands move, our feet walk...and our mouth talk.

Our body is a living battery  that feeds our internal PC: The Brain. 

  And we all learned at highschool that an electric current running through a conductor causes a magnetic field. I explained about that in my previous post:

"I remember one of the first lessons in electro-techniques where we had to make our own magnet, with a yard of copperwire and a nail...! 
It works like this: when a current flows thru a wire (like in your loudspeakers), a magnetic Field is created in the conus (windings). This makes the nail a magnet. 
Now the funny thing is that it works the other way around as well:

  When you move the magnet you create a electric current. That's how a dynamo works..."

 Now there happens to be iron in our blood and 70% of our body is just water ..well, that's a great conductor to electricity...! 
  Just by thinking !! an electric current activates your hands and fingers to move. This tiny current creates a magnetic field. Now through induction the same current will occur in the 'electric veins' of the patient. It works like a transformer.
A transformer only works due to the induction field generated by the primary coil or windings. The secundaire windings need to be close to the primary to induce it's own current. We're talking about volts and amps and magnetic fields.

 Now creating a bio-magnetic field is one thing, but to make somebody feel this energy is something else. Making it a healing power is an enormous mental issue and has to do with an alignment between sender and receiver, like tuning a radio station.

 From here it's more difficult, harder to explain, but I'll give it a try. I said before that each element has its own frequency or a unique vibration number. Crystals are well known to their use in radio techniques and in watches. Each living being has its own private 'shake', DNA. The trick is to find somebody's frequency and to tune-in to it. It doesn't need to be the same freq. a higher or lower harmonic vibe will do as well. Example: a patient has a vibe of 12, then I can step in with a 2, 3, 4 or 6 on the denominator. Chords are possible as well . Yeah, it's like music too... When I can't reach a patient with my 'field' I call them primes. The number 13's. !! Pretty hard to cure these peeps..

 Try This. Rub your hands firmly to warm up.. hold them in front of you, stretch your fingers !!  (use the muscles on de back of your hands) concentrate on your breathing and be aware of some kind a field in between your hands. Once you master this part you will be able to radiate the energy called Ki or Chi... 

  Other than a massage you don't touch a person, point your radiating hand(s) towards the patient's body and move around- or above it. 

  You're not surprised I guess when I tell you there is a link between the Atemi points on which a Karateka will hit you, and acupuncture points used to cure.   A gentle approach to these points will have a healing effect, while a tougher treatment might cause damage or even death. Although there are several exceptions to this rule.

The healing power of : Magnets and Gems.

By Bert E. Spoor de Rave

Everything around us has a magnetic field and has its own vibration and radiation. Crystals are well known for their high frequency and found their use in broadcast transmitters since the beginning of the radio. Or what about the crystal wrist watch, with this small piece of mineral (quartz) in it that controls the accuracy of your clock..!

Everything has a cycle, that's why it exists..!

How can your health be affected by all these vibrations around you.... ? Now where to start.....!
 I imagine life starts like this.

 But there's more than just our lifeline or heartbeat..
Ok, I'll give you a few: Sound, Light, Magnetic fields, Electro-magnetic fields (Cell-phones, Power-lines), Microwaves, X-rays, MRI-scan, Cosmic radiation, you know what I mean..? And of course all minerals and crystals with their own frequences... Did I mention already that every living creature on this Earth has its own unique frequency....!!?? (not to mention all the stimuli on FB, hehehehe)

 Music can make us happy or sad, active or sleepy, agressive or scared. Light, with its many coloured-spectrum, for sure does something to us as well, see my post on this blog.

 I'ld like to focus on Magnetic energy fields in this post.

The most important magnet to us is the Earth. Its huge magnetic field that circumglobes our planet is of vital importance to us. We couldn't survive without it...!
Now what is a magnetic field...? I remember one of the first lessons in electro-tecniques where we had to make our own magnet, with a yard of copper wire and a nail...! 
It works like this: when a current flows thru a wire (like in your loudspeakers), a magnetic Field is created in the conus (windings). This makes the nail a magnet. 
Now the funny thing is that it works the other way around as well:

  When you move the magnet you create a electric current. That's how a dynamo works...

 Now there happens to be iron in our blood and 70% of our body is just water ..well, that's a great conductor to electricity...!

How Magnets Relieve Pain

The magnet should be affixed to the skin directly over the painful area, it  will relax the capillary walls, thereby boosting the blood flow to that area.

They also help prevent  muscle spasms and interfere with the electrochemical reactions that take place within the nerve cells, impeding their ability to transmit pain messages to the brain.

Diabetic neuropathy
In research conducted at New Your Medical College of Valhalla, magnetic foot pads were more effective than nonmagnetic foot pads at relieving numbness, tingling and pain associated with this diabetes-related problem. Evidence suggests that roughly 80% of chronic pain sufferers could benefit form magnetic therapy. That is true for virtually any form of pain.

 A magnet’s poles appear to exert different healing effects. The north one calms, sedates and reduces inflammation. In contrast, the south pole stimulates and promotes healing, growth and activity.

Although not exactly sure how, scientists believe that magnetic fields perturb the body’s own magnetic energy, which, in turn, triggers more conventional biochemical and physiological mechanisms. (Magnetism is measured in gauss. A typical refrigerator magnet is about 10 gauss. That's too weak to penetrate the skin-and unlikely to be helpful for anything more than a minor bruise. Medical magnets range in strength from 450 gauss to 10,000 gauss. The higher the gauss, the better the pain relief )
 The use of magnets will:

·      Increase blood flow, bringing in more oxygen and nutrients, and flushing away waste products.

·      Modulate calcium flow through the body, which is essential to many physiological processes. Magnetic fields can attract calcium ions to heal a broken bone or help move calcium away from painful arthritic joints.

·      Alter the acidity or alkalinity of body fluids, which are often out of balance with illness;

·      Affect hormone production (including those of the brain’s all-important pineal gland), which initiates a cascade of biological effects.

·      Alter enzyme activity and other biochemical processes, such as the production of ATP, a molecule that provides cellular fuel for the entire body.

·      Stimulate electromagnetic energy flow through acupuncture meridians.

·      Alter cell chromosome alignment.

Magnetic Healing Hands: 
In the late 70's I started to experience with some gems. I had bought a couple of stones in Colombo, Sri Lanka and was pretty curious if they would work. Safiers, Robins, Jade, Amethyst and Quartz. And a couple more...and they did work.

 Genezende edelstenen/healing gems.

   Dat het bestaat is buiten kijf, het wordt toegepast in radiozenders (zonder kunnen ze niet) in het bijzonder om het constante trillingsgetal dat ze bezitten, en in quartz horloges.. alles gebeurt hier op moleculair niveau. Voor onze zintuigen nagenoeg niet waarneembaar...! Het zijn zulke subtiele ´hoeweinigheden´ met zulke lage uitstralingswaarden die echter op atomair niveau aansturen als een servo...

   Het zijn vele cycli die het leven beheersen, kleine en grote. De rotatie, revolutie en prossesie van de Aarde. Je kunt ze afbeelden als grafiek om ze begrijpelijk en zichtbaar te maken. Deze geweldige gebeurtenissen zorgen voor energievelden waarvan gravitatie en magnetisme denk ik de meest bekenden zijn. Onze Aarde draait om de zon als een electron om een kern.

(Wanneer dit tig-miljard keer sneller zou gebeuren dan was ons zonnestelsel een solide massieve bal....! ) Of een zwart gat, geen idee... Alles beweegt in ieder geval.

Zo in het groot, zo in het klein.
Moleculen zijn opgebouwd uit atomen. Een atomaire opbouw is te vergelijken met een zonnestelsel: een kern met 'daaromheencirkelende' electronen en een enorme lege ruimte ertussen. Al dat gedoe met omelkaarheendraaien veroorzaakt een energieveld, in ieder geval zó sterk, dat het cellen kan binden. Ons lichaam is niets anders dan bizarre hoop ronddraaiende soep. (met 'n snufje kurkuma graag). Soms is het snert, soms koninginne....
Kan niet anders dan dat ik de volgende meteorietenregen met kruidenmix ga vergelijken...

  Wat heeft dat nou allemaal met kristallen te maken? Wel, die jongens zorgen, met hun unieke trillingsgetal, dat omliggend, hiervoor gevoelig weefsel, erop resoneert/vibreert. Alles wat er voorbijmarcheert wordt in het gelid gezet. Soort pacemakertje. De binaire spoel in de transformator op atomair niveau...! Invloeden van buitenaf....! Magneten hebben een soortgelijke invloed. Muziek heeft ook zoiets, toch...? Denk ik ineens aan Radioactief.... Hangertje cobalt 60... 't kan je teveel uitstraling geven.

Organen en aandoeningen worden gelinkt aan een bepaalde steen die het juiste trillingsgetal afgeeft om de boel te ordenen. Ze zijn niet alleen mooi en duur. Ze hebben waarde. Ze zorgen dat onze menselijke moleculen hun electronen kunnen coördineren en richten op een externe impuls. Mooi hè..?

Edelstenen stralen kracht uit. Dit moet je letterlijk nemen,..

 Gems are no magnets, the theory is that gemstones carry vibrational rates. By placing these stones within the aura, it will change your aura's vibrational rates also. Often the effects are indirect, but very potent. Other times, the effects are very direct and repeatable. There's a stone for almost any ailment and it would be an endless list on this page, therefor here's a link to a site with quite some info on this kind a therapy, please click here.

Therapist onboard the "Henry Dunant". The Red Cross cruiser.

 Magic hands, that's how they (my patients) often called my 'instruments': my hands.. 'Unbelievable' or 'gifted'.'How do you do that...?' Well, one way or another my hands radiate a strong 'bio-magnetic field', even felt on a distance.. As a practitioner of alternative healing I approach all kind of disorders at a holistic way. A combination of non-regular manners inspired me to practice such in the field. What started with Shiatsu-massage and Karate atemi's, developed to a wider assortment of knowledge. My Martial Arts training made my 'Chi' flow, and I learned how to use it...(more about that in my post: 'American Ninja'.) My years in Asia only added more experience as I was able to practice as a 'hilot' on many a movie set.

   Somewhere back in 1993, I got a call from a friend whom I cured from a sore back.. He happened to be a crew-member of the 'ms J. Henry Dunant', a hospital cruiseship that sails the Dutch and German waters for 42 weeks a year. (Hi, Ton..!) He asked me if I was available the next couple a weeks....OK..! What for...? They were in need of a fysiotherapist cos the regular one got ill or something.. I didn't hesitate for a moment and took off for the Harbours.....

 Each cruise lasts for a week, sailing the larger- and smaller rivers and lakes of the Netherlands. On board some 55 handicapped, ill or bedridden patients. Most of them never been on vacation before or at least couldn't due to their restrictions. Other than the ship's crew, an 'army' of Red Cross volunteers embarks to assist. A ship's doctor, nurses, a head nurse and other hands to serve...

This trip: regio ´Rotterdam´. After this one I would join the regio for another 2 cruises, while The Hague and Amsterdam also invited me to participate.. I enjoyed each and every trip and feel happy I could contribute to these people's vacation week.

 Photo's 1993/94.
 ..acupuncture and shiatsu massage, I sometimes adviced my patients to smoke a joint or to use CBD drops.....

Medicinal Marijuana vs Tobacco and Alcohol.

 And still people keep calling it a drug. It's NOT. It's a medicinal herb, a natural product that cures and prevents. It's NOT addictive nor toxic. If legalized it would be the safest and cheapest medicine available. Farmacy industry isn't amused at all. They rather see you use their poisonous pills causing a variaty of side-effects. And yes, you need to take pills again to fight those side effects....!  

  There are a lot of components in the Cannabisplant. Common knows is the factor THC, as in Tetra Hydro Cannabinol. Up to now 70 !!! kinds of different THC's were found and varying contents of CBC, CBD, CBN, CBG and THCV  and their associated by-products. The CBD is the ingredient one is looking for when creating medicine for the sick, particularly inflammatory diseases. And then there are the Terpenes..! 
If you walk into a garden in bloom and breathe deeply, you are likely to encounter great smells. In many cases, the molecules that bring those scents to your nose are the terpenes. Terpenes are a class of molecules that typically contain either ten or fifteen carbon atoms built from a five-carbon building block called isoprene . It is important to note these molecules are volatile —they tend to evaporate relatively easily—which allow them to reach one's nose and trigger the olfactory senses. Ever been in a Pinewood. Well I guess everybody knows how a christmas tree smells... Hmmm, I wouldn't mind to stroll around in a Weedwood...

Marijuana instead of Ritalin in treatment ADHD.

 More and more benefits of the Marijuana plant are 'revealed'. From all over the world patients tell their stories about the healing effects of weed on their disorders and diseases, even on Cancer, HIV, Alzheimer and the syndrome of Gilles de la Tourette.  See my articles about: (The healing power of Marijuana)

 And now another one ! :

Attention Deficit Disorder, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or  ADD/ADHD  a brain based condition that is characterized by poor attention  and/or hyperactive and impulsive behaviors. 
It is one of the most common mental disorders that develops in children.
For quite some time allready Ritalin is prescribed to lower all these over-activities, but, for the child diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, the side effects of using Ritalin, are many, such as psychosis, abnormal thinking and hallucinations, difficulties with sleeping, stomach aches, diarrhea, headaches, lack of hunger (leading to weight loss). 
In some cases, the use of Ritalin has led to death.
Wouldn't you like your child to use safer drugs/medicines ?? 
I tell you, there is.....!:

~~Investigators at the Heidelberg University Medical Center reported that smoking cannabis dramatically improved the performance, behavior and mental state of a 28-year-old male patient diagnosed with severe ADHD. "The present case report suggests that individuals suffering from ADHD, may - in some cases - benefit from cannabis treatment in that it appears to regulate activation to a level which may be considered optimum for performance," researchers concluded....~~

  And they are right....!!! Oh, I've seen many  'ADHD-like' people  switching to a lower gear after smoking a reefer... 30 years ago allready..!!! Never heard of the disorder at thàt time, but a joint for sure had a relaxing affect on those hyper active persons. A joint too many and they just fell asleep. Hehehehehe. And you know what ? No headach the next morning...! A Good apetite instead of the 'no hungry' fealings after using Ritalin......

Recently I was chatting with a friend on Facebook
about the effects of drugs on children. As I was recommending MJ as a cure to many disseases, she wondered if she had mis-informed her kids about doing drugs...
I told her she was right to warn her children against drugs like: coke, xtc, and sort alikes. Worry when your kids start using alcohol and/or tobacco..! Tell them you'ld rather see them smoke a joint in stead. 
I'm serious..!
Marijuana is not a drug, IT'S A MEDICINE...!

"I'd have no hesitation of giving a youngster with ADHD a trial of oral marijuana," said Lester Grinspoon, emeritus professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and the author of  

"Marihuana: The Forbidden Medicine."

"For some kids, it appears to be more effective than traditional treatments. And marijuana certainly has fewer, (if none) potential dangers than Ritalin."

   There are different ways to ingest the powerful benefits of this herb besides smoking it. Pour  hot water on the leaves and you make yourself a nice cuppa tea. Add it to coockies and you end up with brownies. The smoke or vapor from waterpipe and bong are always cleaner than a  pure rolled joint.. Hemp oil, CBD/THC drops, is a very healthy and a useful additive to your diet to fight and cure several (if not all) ailments..

  "My son was diagnosed with ADHD when he was 6," a Grass Valley, Calif., woman who wished to remain anonymous told Sphere. "He was hyperactive and had trouble in school, but we didn't want to put him on Ritalin. Too many side effects. When he got to high school, I suddenly noticed that he'd calmed and could concentrate. I couldn't figure it out. Then he told me that he'd started smoking pot." Now 28, her son still smokes pot, the woman says, and has very little problem with his ADHD. 

Regular ADD, is different than ADHD, in that ADHD is caused by an under-stimulation in the frontal lobe, and ADD is more of a problem of the parietal lobe.

Scientists have studied electrical activity in the frontal lobes of the brain in Marijuana users using Event-Related Potential measurements (ERP). activity). However with increasing frequency of use there was a growing problem in the parietal area of the brain with slower speed of information processing.

  If ADD people have overactive parietal lobes, then it makes sense, that something that can calm that lobe, like marijuana, would actually help them. In the case of 'normal' people, frequent use would overdo, but for ADD people, frequent use would calm them down.

  Marijuana, in its natural form, is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man.

The results in treating ADHD with cannabis are often spectacular. Patients report grades going from C's and D's to A's and B's.
Dr. David Bearman, a physician practicing in Santa Barbara California, reports patients have said:
“I graduated from the Maritime Academy because I smoked marijuana”, and “I got my Ph. D because of smoking marijuana.” 

Almost universally ADHD patients who therapeutically used cannabis reported it helped them pay attention in lecture, focus their attention instead of thinking of several ideas almost at the same time, helped them to stay on task and do their homework.

Since the endo-cannabinoid system was discovered, many studies revealed that marijuana also modulates the dopamine system and therefore is a potential ADHD treatment. As recounted in the physicians’ stories  marijuana may offer a safer, less costly and more effective treatment than anything available from the pharmaceutical companies. 

We may discover that it's better to have a bunch of hyperactive kids taking small amounts of pot rather than Ritalin, which has all kinds of creepy side-effects and isn't, you know, natural....

Courtesy dr. Phil Salem:
"I had heard or read about California marijuana doctors reporting that it was effective for the treatment of ADD and autism. These were single or isolated reports because physicians seemed to be reluctant to even talk about what the U.S. government constantly bleats about a "dangerous addicting drug", marijuana.
Dr. Mikuriya reported in 2006 in O'Shaunessy marijuana magazine that a 15-year old child was brought to him by his mother. He had been diagnosed with ADD and psychoses and had been given over 30 different kinds of drugs including pulverized kitchen sink, most of which made him combative and worse. He had used marijuana at age 11 with older friends.
It had a calming effect but his use brought police action and three court ordered rehabs which really drove him crazy. His mother found Dr. Mikuriya who prescribed Marinol which worked. A judge would not let him use ut, but a second judge did allow it and he got a marijuana permit and smoked it with dramatic improved results.
I decided a search of the Internet was advisable and I typed up marijuana autism with the surprising finding that the Autism Research Institute posted an article by Bernard Rinland Ph.D. Medical Marijuana: a valuable treatment for autism in 2003. The site discussed a letter from a mother of a violently autistic child. A friend suggested a marijuana brownie cookie which in the words of the mother "saved my child's life and my family's life." 

The article continues to state that many parents in the same situation have reported marked success.

All Vehicles Holland. Garage krijgt een ster van mij.

Wanneer je regelmatig een 2de hands autootje aanschaft loop je wel eens het risico van een miskoop. Dat is me de laatste 20 jaar toch wel een aantal keren overkomen. Ik ga geen namen noemen van garages waar ik minder goede ervaringen mee heb, liever noem ik degenen waar ik een prettig gevoel aan over houd.

Het is niet de eerste keer dat ik een leuk wagentje bij All Vehicles Holland op de kop heb getikt. Ik heb er een Corolla vandaan waar ik jaren mee gereden heb ( tot ie gejat werd..), maar daar kunnen zij niets aan doen..! 

In maart dit jaar was ik weer 'ns toe aan een ander vervoermiddel en kwam thuis met een Nissan Micra, pittig ding en niet te duur voor de kleine portemonnee, met 7 mnd APK. De tijd vliegt en die 7 maanden zaten er in oktober op. Op de dag van de keuring werd ik door de garage gebeld met de mededeling dat er één en ander mis was en of ik even langs wilde komen. Ze hadden bij de verkoop van de Nissan een euvel over het hoofd gezien waardoor de auto nu niet door de keuring kwam, en reparatie zou fors duur uitpakken...!

Daar word je niet vrolijk van, maar de garage zat er zelf ook duidelijk mee in de maag en bood me een andere auto aan, welliswaar met een kleine bijbetaling (200,- Euro, nieuwe APK en garantie..!), maar zeer de moeite waard: een Mazda 121 Cabriotop. En ik trof het met het weer, heerlijk met het dak open.... veel plezier km's gemaakt.

Proefritje Maasvlakte.

Uiteraard kwamen er wat kleine (gemakkelijk te verhelpen) gebreken boven water. De stappenmotor bleek ook wat te haperen en die wordt deze week, samen met de carburator vervangen. Kan niet wachten om die 73 PK uit te proberen ( misschien zit er wel een Turbo op..hehehehe).

Ik kan niet anders zeggen dan dat ik heel tevreden ben met de service en de vriendelijke en snelle hulpverlening.  Remco Zwikstra, je krijgt van mij een ster voor je garage....

The healing power of : Coriander/Cilantro.

Coriander/Cilantro and its seeds have been traditionally used in many parts of the world and are well known for treating various ailments such as diabetes and lowering cholesterol. Modern medical studies revealed the efficacy of coriander seeds- or oil in treating blood sugar control and free radical production.

The  leaves and oil contain beneficial nutrients such as limonene, camphor, chlorogenic acid, and a range of active phenolic acid compounds.  By consuming any form of coriander, health is greatly benefited in all aspects as it is an important source of minerals and fibers. As one of the many exceptional herbs, coriander aka cilantro possesses a range of antibacterial compounds that have the means of fighting various diseases especially Salmonella.

Dry seeds of coriander when boiled, strained and cooled is useful as eyewash for treating conjunctivitis and relieving burning and swelling The juice of  the leaves is also rich in treating deficiencies of iron and various vitamins.  They also possess antispasmodic properties and I useful in relieving bronchitis and reducing phlegm.

  Nutrition Benefits  
  • Coriander leaves act as stimulants and tonics for the stomach, strengthening its functions as well as promoting digestion.
  • The seeds  have been associated with offering a feeling of coolness and also reducing fever.
  • It has been seen that coriander helps in the removal of phlegm and also aids secretion and discharge of urine.
  • Containing an antibacterial compound, cilantro has been found to provide a natural means of fighting Salmonella, a cause of food-borne sickness.
  •  It has anti-inflammatory properties that might alleviate symptoms of arthritis.
  • Researches have pointed out that coriander helps stimulate the secretion of insulin and also lowers blood sugar.
  • Coriander keeps health problem at bay, by helping lower bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol.
  • Consumption of coriander seeds has been known to lessen excessive menstrual flow.
  • Coriander juice, when mixed with a pinch of turmeric/kurkuma powder, serves as an effective remedy against pimples, blackheads and dry skin.
  •   for treating nausea and intestinal gas and is also a good source of dietary fiber.
  •  It has been fount to provide effective protection against urinary tract infections.
  •  It can act as a natural chelation treatment. Heavy metals like mercury enter your body through things like mercury leaking out of your amalgam fillings or eating contaminated fish and helps the body flush out those toxins through your urine. 
 Dry coriander treats diarrhea and chronic dysentery, as well as being useful in acidity. Chutney made from dry coriander, green chilies, grated coconut, ginger and black grapes without seeds are a remedy for abdominal pain due to indigestion.
Coriander juice

Coriander juice/water is highly beneficial in deficiencies of 
vitamin A, B1, B2, C and iron.
It is prepared by boiling dry seeds of coriander and straining the decoction after cooling.

Digestive Disorders
One or two teaspoons of coriander juice, added to fresh buttermilk, is highly beneficial in treating digestive disorders such as indigestion, nausea, dysentery, hepatitis and ulcerative colitis. It is also helpful in typhoid fever.

Small Pox
One teaspoon fresh coriander juice, mixed with 1 or 2 seeds of banana, given once daily regularly, for a week is a very effective preventive measure against small pox. It is believed that putting fresh leaf juice in the eyes, during an attack of small pox, prevents eye damage.

High Cholesterol Levels
Regular drinking of coriander water helps lower blood cholesterol as it is a good diuretic and stimulates the kidneys.

Excessive Menstrual flow
Coriander seeds check excessive menstrual flow. Six grams of the seeds should be boiled in half a liter of water, till only half the water remains. Sugar should be added to it and taken when it is still warm. The patient gets relief after taking the medicine for 3 or 4 days.

A decoction prepared from, freshly dried coriander is an excellent eye-wash in conjuctivitis. It relieves burning and reduces pain and swelling.

Precautions: Dry coriander should be sparingly used by persons suffering from bronchial asthma and chronic bronchitis.

Other plant's info:

The young plants of coriander are used in chutneys, sauces, curries and soups. The volatile oil in it is used for flavoring and in medicine. In the dried form, coriander is an important ingredient of curry powder and is also used in pickling spices, sausages, seasoning, and confectionery and for flavoring spirits, particularly gin.

Coriander's volatile oil is rich in beneficial phytonutrients, including carvone, geraniol, limonene, borneol, camphor, elemol, and linalool. Coriander's flavonoids include quercitin, kaempferol, rhamnetin, and epigenin. Plus, coridander contains active phenolic acid compounds, including caffeic and chlorogenic acid.

The mineral and vitamin contents include calcium, phosphorus, iron, carotene, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin and vitamin C. They also contain sodium, potassium and oxalic acid.

Vitamin D far better than vaccines at preventing Influenza. Fights Cancer, MS and Diabetes.

An essential nutrient for bone and immune system health, along with psychological well-being, vitamin D3 is synthesized through the skin. Vitamin D3 deficiencies are associated with numerous serious health conditions such as: cancer, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and depression.

What is the Difference between Vitamin D2 and Vitamin D3?

The two forms of vitamin D available as supplements are ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) and cholecalciferol (vitamin D3). Fungi, plants and invertebrate animals make ergocalciferol. Cholecalciferol is produced in the skin of vertebrate animals, including humans. There is only a slight difference in molecular structure between these two compounds. Still, that small difference has a significant impact on biological activity.

In humans, vitamin D3 is much more effective, and safer, than vitamin D2. Therefore, if you supplement, be sure that you are taking vitamin D3, or cholecalciferol.

Research into methods of preventing or reversing the damaging effects on the brain caused by Alzheimer's disease is heating up -- namely with a common spice, turmeric (Kurkuma), and something so simple, the sun.

A new study by UCLA scientists and colleagues from UC Riverside and
the Human BioMolecular Research Institute, cited in the July issue of the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, reports findings suggesting the possibility that:
Vitamin D3 and curcumin might possibly not only prevent, but may help REVERS damage done by the typical plaques and tangles which are characteristics of Alzheimer's disease.

A clinical trial led by Mitsuyoshi Urashima and conducted by the Division of Molecular Epidemiology in the the Department of Pediatrics at the
Jikei University School of Medicine Minato-ku in Tokyo found that:
vitamin D was extremely effective at halting influenza infections in children.
The trial appears in the March, 2010 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
(Am J Clin Nutr (March 10, 2010).


Maintains Your Calcium Balance

Maintenance of blood calcium levels within a narrow range is vital for normal functioning of the nervous system, as well as for bone growth, and maintenance of bone density. Vitamin D is essential for the efficient utilization of calcium by the body.

Aids Your Cell Differentiation

Cellular differentiation results in the specialization of cells for specific functions in your body. In general, differentiation of cells leads to a decrease in proliferation. While cellular proliferation is essential for growth and wound healing, uncontrolled proliferation of cells with certain mutations may lead to diseases like cancer. The active form of vitamin D, inhibits proliferation and stimulates the differentiation of cells.

Boosts Your Immunity

Active vitamin D is a potent immune system modulator. There is plenty of scientific evidence that vitamin D has several different effects on immune system function that may enhance your immunity and inhibit the development of autoimmunity. Several studies conducted in this regard have shown that this vitamin can enhance the immune functions, and may prove effective in preventing the development of autoimmune disorders. This vitamin can help to treat inflammatory diseases as well.

Has a Role in Insulin Secretion

The active form of vitamin D plays a role in insulin secretion under conditions of increased insulin demand. Limited data in humans suggests that insufficient vitamin D levels may have an adverse effect on insulin secretion and glucose tolerance in type 2 diabetes.

Blood Pressure Regulation

Adequate vitamin D levels may be important for decreasing the risk of high blood pressure. Again, more studies on vitamin D and hypertension are necessary.

Benefits for Depression
The relationship between vitamin D3 and depression is not very clear, though one study has reported that this vitamin deficiency may raise the risk of depression in both men and women.

Skin Benefits
Vitamin D3 is known to possess anti-inflammatory properties. Therefore, it can prove helpful in controlling inflammatory skin conditions like, psoriasis. It can also promote wound healing, reduce itching and may help to alleviate skin lesions caused by conditions like, lichen planus and photodermatitis. It can help to rejuvenate the skin as well.

All together,

What can high-vitamin D foods do for you?

  • Help optimize calcium metabolism
  • Help optimize phosphorus metabolism
  • Help prevent type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, high blood pressure, heart attack, congestive heart failure, and stroke
  • Help prevent falls and muscle weakness
  • Help prevent osteoporosis while maintaining bone integrity
  • Help regulate insulin activity and blood sugar balance
  • Help regulate immune system responses
  • Help regulate muscle composition and muscle function
  • Help regulate blood pressure
  • Lower risk of excessive inflammation
  • Lower risk of some bacterial infections
  • Support cognitive function, especially in older persons
  • Support mood stability, especially in older persons
  • Help prevent chronic fatigue
  • Help prevent the following types of cancer: bladder, breast, colon, ovarian, prostate and rectal

What events can indicate a need for more foods rich in vitamin D?

  • Muscle aches and muscle weakness
  • Frequent falls, particularly among older persons
  • Bone pain, frequent bone fractures, or soft bones
  • Stunted growth in children
  • Asthma in children (especially severe asthma)
  • Impaired cognitive function, especially among older persons
  • Lowered immunity
  • Chronic low energy and fatigue
  • Depression, particularly among older persons
  • Presence of any autoimmune disorder
  • Lack of exposure to sunlight for any reason, including geography, use of sunscreen, or wearing of protective clothing
Concentrated food sources of vitamin D include salmon, sardines, shrimp, milk, cod liver (levertraan), and eggs. Among salmon, wild-caught fish have been shown to average significantly more vitamin D than non-organically farmed fish.

  Cod liver oil contains certain "fatty acids" that prevent the blood from clotting easily. These fatty acids also reduce pain and swelling. Cod liveroil can be obtained from eating fresh cod liver or by taking supplements. Norwegian cod liver oil has traditionally been one of the most popular natural sources of Vitamins A & D. Cod liver oil also contains the Omega 3 Fatty Acids known as EPA and DHA, which may be valuable in the maintenance of a healthy heart and circulation. Cod Liver Oil products include capsule and liquid forms.


Vitamin D3 promotes calcium's absorption and functions for teen's and children's
healthy teeth and bones, prevents loss of bone mass, and treats bone disorders.

It protects against adult and elderly
muscle weakness and immune system issues,
and lowers the risk of colon, breast, and prostate cancers,rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis

Vitamin D3 prevents/treats
Rickets, post menopausal osteoporosis, hypoglycemia, Multiple Sclerosis and Diabetes.

Benefits of vitamin D3 in 'the elderly and fractures' are still under investigation. An analysis, reported in August 2007 by the University of Ottawa Evidence-based Practice Center, showed higher doses of vitamin D3 of between 700-800 IU's per day combined with calcium help prevent hip fractures for institutionalized elderly.
