Simple Healthful Herbs And Healing Foods For Your Children

One of our past guests had just become a new grandmother and she asked my opinion on raw living foods for children and if children could eat herbs when they were sick. That is why I am writing this article  — because she asked me to help her and because I thought some of our other past guests and readers could benefit from how I answered her questions.

Keeping our children healthy is our primary purpose as parents and grandparents.  The living foods lifestyle is the strongest health foundation you can give your child, yet there are times when parents must consider additional modalities when helping their children through an illness.  It’s my hope that you will never have to use any of the following herbs or concoctions, but if you do, keep in mind herbs can interact with other herbs, supplements and/or medications. For these reasons, you should only give herbs to a child when under the supervision of a health care practitioner. So if you do want to use these time-tested protocols, please consult your healthcare provider for diagnosis and medical advice before giving them to your children.

The following list of symptoms and the herbs and concoctions used to address them is by no means meant to be a comprehensive listing and only reflects some of the protocols I am personally aware of.  If you have found other simple protocols please feel free to add them to the comments.  I would love to hear from you.

Blessings,

Bobby

Herbs and Protocols

Colic:  When your child cries for extended periods (1-2 hours), pulls its legs up to the belly, or extends its legs out and will not calm down they may be experiencing colic.  Mild, yet effective herbal teas made from Anise, Catnip, Caraway or Fennel and Peppermint have been used by mothers to soothe their children’s colic.

Colds: When your child is suffering from a cold you also suffer.  All of these herbs and concoctions will really help your child when they are fighting a cold. Your first line of defense should be used early and often. Echinacea is a great all round herb which provides immune support and may help protect your child from viral and bacterial infections.   I also like Anise as it will help with breaking up the mucus and make it easier for your child to breath and get mucus out of his/her body.  You may also want to make a Chamomile tea, infused with peppermint, licorice and lemon balm. This concoction will help calm your child’s cough and works as an expectorant. If your child is older you may want to talk to your health care provider about Mullen tea.

Constipation:  Good hydration is the most effective way to relieve constipation and this is easy to achieve when your child is getting plenty of pure water along with raw fruits and vegetables which contain large amounts of water. Also, a blend of Chamomile and Marigold teas will help prevent constipation, while gently helping your little one’s bowels to move.  Two other good herbs are aloe and Sienna both possesses laxative action and act on your child’s large intestine to stimulate peristalsis.

Cough: When your child coughs it is a sign that his/her body is attempting to an inflamed (croup- dry cough) or mucus congested airway (wet cough).  All of the herbal remedies I’m sharing with you will decrease inflammation, reduce mucus production and have a soothing relaxing effect that quickly helps stop the coughing.   Warm herbal tea with licorice, honey (only give honey to children who are at least 1 year old) and a little lemon juice is excellent for helping ease the tickle that sets off a cough.  Children of all ages who have coughs benefit from running a humidifier with eucalyptus oil in the water as it will break up mucus and soothe your child’s coughing reflex.  Make sure the humidifier is out of your child’s reach, or use a cold humidifier.  Also, if your child is over 1 year old give them a spoonful of honey with a little lemon mixed in before they go to bed as this will help alleviate soreness.  There are many wonderful natural herbal cough syrups that you can make or purchase.  Contact your health care for recipes and suggestions.  Don’t forget to keep checking your child’s temperature and to keep him/her hydrated.

Cradle Cap: Consists of dead skin cells which remain attached to your babies head. These dead skin cells block your baby’s pores and mix with body oils.  Cradle Cap usually appears within the first days of your child’s life.  Your child will not usually experience itching or pain with Cradle Cap.  Before bedtime you can rinse your baby’s head with a simple warm mixture of  Calendula and Comfrey, then let the baby’s scalp air dry, then massage organic olive oil mixed with lavender and mullein into the scalp and leave it in overnight, wash it away with mild natural soap and water each morning. The Cradle Cap should disappear within a few days.  Seborrhea- is a form of Cradle Cap that has formed on other areas of the body.

Diaper Rash:  Is usually caused by a diaper containing urine/stool and the material of the diaper rubbing against the child’s skin.  The way to identify this type of rash is to look at the folds of the skin (which are more protected) if they are not red, you have diaper rash caused by simple irritation.   Most other diaper rashes are caused by yeast or bacterial infections. The yeast rash will show up bright red, often with small red pimples on the outer edges.  The bacterial rash will have fluid-filled pimples which look yellowish with some crusty areas.

Diarrhea: As your child begins to eat different combinations of foods the bowels sometime will react and your child may get diarrhea. To alleviate the discomfort associated with diarrhea, you may want to have your child eat fresh grated raw or lightly steamed carrots, mixed with equal parts applesauce (include the apple’s skin).  I also like raspberry and peppermint tea blended, as this concoction helps to stop cramping, calms diarrhea and will also help lower a fever.

Earache: If your child experiences regular earaches or earaches which last more than 12 hours be sure to contact your physician.  Usually, earaches accompany colds and coughs. If you are a smoker stop!  Smoke from cigarettes plays a major role in many children’s earaches.  Before giving your child herbs or medications, try sitting him/her up and placing a cool washcloth on the ear that is troubling them.  If your child is old enough to chew gum give him/her a piece of herbal chewing gum, as this can sometimes lower the pain. As long as your child’s eardrum is not punctured you may want to warm some olive oil and add a few drops of grapefruit seed extract along with a drop of garlic and tea tree oil. Place a piece of warm cotton in the ear and lay a warm, slightly damp cloth over the ear and begin a vaporizer that has eucalyptus oil in it. You may repeat putting on warm clothes until your child’s ear stops hurting.  Should your child’s earache not subside, you should contact your physician.

Teething: Children seeking comfort from the pain of teething can use lemon balm as a tea or can chew on a washcloth soaked in the tea.

Better Tasting Energy Soup

Energy Soup – Your Way!

 Leafy Greens – Spinach, kale, swiss chard or any of your favorite leafy greens. Make sure to look for wild greens, as they have amazing nutritional properties.

 Raw Vegetables – zucchini, cucumber, asparagus, bell peppers, broccoli, or any other raw vegetable, adding at least 1-2 of them to the the greens. If you do not have a problem with night-shades try adding some tomatoes.

 Raw Fruits – Choose your favorite fruit. We love apples, pears and mangoes, but you can choose your favorite fruit to make your energy soup your own.. My standard is apples and I add only a single apple along with an inch of fresh ginger to make a pitcher of sweet energy soup.

 Flavor Enhancers – Dulse, kelp and other sea vegetables really being up the flavor of the soup and are an excellent source of minerals. Raw onions and garlic add delicious flavor to soup. Fresh ginger is always a favorite and when making a sweet soup,you may even want to add a touch of cinnamon or nutmeg to garnish your soup

 Fresh Herbs – Basil, oregano, Italian seasoning, or cilantro; experiment with your favorite herbs. You may want to use no more than two different herbs as you don’t want to make the soups flavor too complex.

 Fresh Lemon Juice – Lemon juice is extremely alkalizing to the body and adds a subtle tang to your soup.

 Nut & Seed & Avocado Cream – You can simply add the avocado to make the soup creamer. To increase the protein content of the soup experiment with seed and nut creams or just as some of your favorite nuts and seeds to the soup and blend in. My favorite is hemp.

 Unprocessed Sea Salt and Pepper – A little touch of sea salt will enhance the flavor of your soup. Go easy on the salt and use more duse or kelp as enhancers. Regular iodized table salt is heavily processed, so opt for sea salt instead. Crushed black pepper adds a nice addition, as does cayenne pepper if you like your soup spicy.

 Rejuvelac or Water. You need to add some liquid to get your soup to the consistency you like. How thick you want your soup is totally up to you. Here at CHI we always use rejuvelac as part of our soup base. Its amazing how wonderful it makes the soup taste, while making it I like a thick, creamy soup.

 Wishing everyone a great easter weekend. Love & Blessings, Bobby

Patty’s Living Celery Dill Soup: # 4 In CHI’s 20 Elegant Raw Soups

 

Serves 12 to 14

Ingredients:

  • 3 Organic English Cucumbers
  • 4 Bunches Organic Celery
  • 10 Organic Roma Tomatoes
  • 10 Cloves Garlic
  • 1/2 Cup Soaked Almonds
  • 2 1/2 Cups Purified Water
  • 3 Organic Avocados
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Aminos
  • 1 Cup Alfalfa Sprouts
  • 1 1/2 tsp Dill
  • 1/2 tsp Mustard Powder
  • (Optional) Pinch of Himalayan Sea Salt and Dill for garnish with Celery leaf.

Directions:

  1. Juice cucumbers, celery, tomatoes and  garlic. Set aside in very large bowl.
  2. Blend almonds and water; strain pulp in nut milk bag and pour into large bowl with vegetable juice. Whisk.
  3. Ladle 4 cups of juice/milk mixture into high-speed blender and add sprouts, 1 1/2 of avocados, mustard and dill. Blend at high speed until smooth.
  4. Set aside another four cups of juice/ milk mixture.
  5. Empty blended mixture (with avocados and spices) into large bowl of juice/milk mixture.
  6.  Pour second batch of juice/milk mixture into blender. Add remaining 1 1/2 avocado. Blend at high speed until smooth.
  7. Pour blended juice/milk/avocado mixture back into large bowl.
  8. Whisk vigorously until blended well.
  9. Ladle six cups of soup mixture back into blender and blend at high speed.
  10. Pour blended mixture back into main bowl.
  11. Repeat steps 8, 9 and 10 until soup is very smooth and completely blended.
  12. You may enjoy this delicious raw living soup at room temperature, warm it in your high-speed blender by blending it on high speed for about five minutes (my favorite option), or set it in the dehydrator at 105 degrees for two hours before serving. If you dehydrate it, be sure to whisk it again before serving as the juice mixture will separate from the milk mixture as the soup sets.
  13. When you serve it, sprinkle it with dill and a celery leaf and, if you are willing to stray from Ann Wigmore’s strict raw living food guidelines, a pinch of Himalayan sea salt (the salt contains about 80 minerals so I consider it healthy in small amounts).

Note from Patty: This is the first soup I have created that fits within Ann Wigmore’s Raw Living Foods guidelines. I love that it tastes so gourmet and delicious and yet is something I could serve to Ann Wigmore if she were still alive and dropped by my house for dinner this evening. The flavours are extremely subtle and yet delicious. I absolutely LOVE this soup and so does CHI Director Bobby Morgan who ate several bowls of it before it was even warmed. Bobby said the soup is “an award winner” and that he could actually feel the healing energy and vibration from the soup as he ate it. I hope you enjoy this amazing soup as much as we do.

Also, I want to let you know that the process of developing 20 raw gourmet soups has been extremely rewarding so far. If you are trying to develop expertise as a raw chef, I highly suggest you consider sticking to one item (soups, salad dressings, granola, chips, crackers, cookies, etc…) and attempting to develop 10 to 20 variations on the theme. The process is very rewarding and you will find yourself thinking about your project at odd moments and developing more and more creative ideas. I think I have worked on creative projects for many years in this manner, finding that I am more creative by imposing a set of boundaries on myself for a time. I believe this idea came to me when I took drawing classes with renown sculpture David Barr many years ago. Barr, who has work in the Smithsonian Institute, told me his life as an artist expanded greatly during a period of years when he limited his sculpture pallet to black and white. Since then I have often seen the wisdom in establishing guidelines for creative projects.

Indian Coconut Carrot Soup: Soup # 2 of 20 Elegant Raw Soups

CHI Cucumber Sandwiches with Patty’s Ranch Dressing and Patty’s Indian Coconut Soup

Dear Friends,

I hope you enjoy this delicious soup recipe. And to those of you who tried the mushroom soup, I’m really sorry if, when you dehydrated it, it fermented on you. We discovered the same thing in our own kitchen and decided that mushroom soup is best served at room temperature or warmed just slightly in your Vitamix. This week I’ve created for you a soup you can heat in the dehydrator. I just LOVE it and so do a few other people around here. If you like Indian food, I suspect you’ll love it, too. If you’re not super crazy about Indian food, you’ll probably be able to take it or leave it. Whatever the case, I hope that if you’ve ever visited Creative Health Institute, you’ll be able to appreciate that it’s a great way to re-purpose our perpetually accumulating carrot pulp. We serve carrot juice daily to all of our guests who are addressing cancer challenges so we always have lots of carrot pulp around.

Also,  our friend Garrett from Texas wrote to ask that we include a good number of soups without cashews because many people like to avoid eating them. Considering Garrett’s suggestion this soup is cashew free.

And for those of you who want to spice up your Valentine’s Day, serve it like I do — with a few extra sprinkles of cayanne pepper.

Also, I want to say thank you to those of you who have offered to donate cameras! We received our first camera gift in the mail yesterday from Dolores and it enabled me to take this photograph for the blog. Julia just dropped off a camera that will allow us to take short videos. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. We are so grateful to Delores and to Julia  to all of you consider  who Creative Health Institute so generously. Please remember one easy way to support our wonderful community is simply to do all of your online shopping through our link to Amazon.com on our web page. Each time you shop online through our online store, CHI receives a donation that will enable us to help others.

Love and blessings,

Patty

Patty’s Delicious  Raw Ranch Dressing

  • 1/2 t Himalayan sea salt
  • 1/2 T  dried dill
  • 1/2 T  dried parsley

This is a delicious ranch dressing for any raw salad or wrap. You may enjoy making our CHI Cucumber Sandwiches with it. Do it just like this:

  1. Take a square of your favorite raw bread (keep it simple…don’t use anything that overpowers the simple flavors of this yummy sandwich).
  2. Spread thinly sliced organic cucumbers in a thin bottom layer.
  3. Add about a tablespoon full of Patty’s Ranch Dressing on top of the cucumbers.
  4. Put two slices of avocado on top the dressing (it will help to hold on the dressing and tomatoes if you place them right).
  5. Add a spoonful of chopped tomatoes.
  6. Garnish with alfalfa sprouts.

This yummy sandwich was a joint creation of Patty, Don, Cheryl and Johannes from Austria. We hope you will enjoy the subtle flavors! We couldn’t assemble them fast enough and interns were gobbling them off the platter as we made them.

Best Mushroom Soup EVer

Hello Friends,

It’s the time of the year to enjoy wonderful warm soups. And just because we’re raw foodists doesn’t mean we have to miss out on the experience. There’s nothing I love more than making soup. Honestly, soup making even beats my love of cookie making.

So, I’ve decided my gift to my CHI friends for Winter 2012 will be 20 delicious gourmet soup recipes. This first recipe is simple and delicious. I’ll be experimenting during the next few months in the Creative Health Institute kitchen with our amazing wholesome ingredients and I promise only to post recipes that are in the same league as this amazing and simply elegant mushroom soup.

I don’t like schedules, so don’t hold me to one. 🙂  But I expect I’ll post about one new soup recipe per week for the next few months. Some weeks I may give you two recipes. I’ll only post recipes that are my own original creations and recipes that are equal in flavor to this one.

I hope you enjoy the soup. This soup project will help me achieve my Chef III Certification. So please comment on the blog or post on Facebook and let us know how you like each recipe.

Love, blessings and warm RAWsome soup,

Patty

Relieving Autointoxication By Dry Skin Brushing

 

 Nothing Cleanses The Lymph System Like Dry Skin Brushing

 What is the largest organ in the body? THE SKIN!

  1. What is one of the most important elimination organs in the body? THE SKIN!
  2. What organ is responsible for ¼ of the body’s detoxification each day?
    THE SKIN!
  3. What organ eliminates up to 2 pounds of waste acids, daily? THE SKIN!
  4. When the blood has an over abundance of toxic materials, what organ will reflect this with problems? THE SKIN! 

Dry skin brushing is a swift and powerful way to enhance the detoxification process . Its easy, pleasant and yields tremendous benefits!

Dry brushing has been used for centuries by Scandinavians and Russians. More than 30 years ago, a Finnish doctor and one the greatest doctors of the century, Paavo Airola prescribed dry skin brushing for all his patients for detoxifying the lymph system and to exfoliate and stimulate the skin. Today,many health practitioners recommend dry skin brushing to open the pores of the skin and clean out the lymphatic system.  Dry skin brushing is not only a great way to maintain healthy skin, but also helps maintain a healthy body. The ability of the skin to open up the pores to excrete toxins is of paramount importance in helping to overcome autointoxication. 

When the pores are not clogged with dead cells and the lymphatic system is stimulated and cleansed, all organs in the body are better able to carry out the important function of eliminating toxic waste. Further, it increases blood circulation in all underlying organs and tissues. 

As part of a detoxification and autointoxication cleansing program, our guests combine skin brushing, saunas and warm and cold showers. Follow these steps for the highest level of cleansing:

  1. Skin brush before entering the sauna, remain in the sauna until in a full sweat.
  2. Take a warm shower followed by a quick cold shower
  3. Dry off all of your body and dry skin brush again – always towards your heart accept for between the bottom and top of your neck.
  4. Jump back into the sauna and remain to the point of flowing perspiration. 
  5. This combination of skin brushing, saunas and showers has proved to be a powerful method for eliminating waste and toxins from the body.

CHI recommends you dry skin brush, morning and night, before your enema, during the program, then once a day after the program is completed.

       I.        A long-handled natural bristle brush, with a removable head is best. 

      II.        When you first start be sure to brush the skin lightly. Always towards your heart accept for between the bottom and top of your neck.

    III.        As the skin becomes toned, you may brush heavier.  Women should not brush their breast.

   IV.        Start at the bottom of the feet using a straight motion. 

     V.        Brush in long strokes from the feet toward the waist.

   VI.        Brush from the waste to the bottom of your rib cage, moving the brush with clockwise circular motions.

  VII.        Brush the ribcage towards the heart.

 VIII.        Hold your arm out in front of you and brush from your fingers toward your shoulders.

   IX.        Brush up from the bottom of your neck to the top of it

     X.        Brush from the bottom of your neck toward your heart.

   XI.        Brush your skin until it gets a red glow.

  XII.        Women should avoid doing the breasts. 

 XIII.        Never wet your dry skin brush, accept for cleaning. Avoid sensitive areas and anywhere the skin is broken.

 XV.        Skin brushing should take about 5 minutes. Clean your skin brush using soap and water once a week. After rinsing, dry your skin brush in an open, sunny spot to prevent mildew.

Proper Showering After Dry Brushing

If you are not following the aforementioned routine, a shower should always follow skin brushing. 

  1. This will remove uric acid crystals along with any dead skin that has been loosened. 
  2. Always start your shower with warm water and end with cold. 
  3. Once the water is cold, do not stay in any longer.  When the water turns cold, let it hit your legs first.  Do not let it hit your heart or head first as this can cause a slight shock to the body. 
  4. Vigorously dry off your body.
  5. Though this is not a problem here at CHI hot shower temperatures create steam that can disperse toxic chemicals found in unfiltered water:   Therefore, avoid hot showers, if your water is not filtered. 

The Seven Magnificent Benefits of Dry Skin Brushing

      I.        Opens pores, removes toxins and dead skin allowing the skin to breath.

    II.        Increases blood circulation and healthy cell renewal.

   III.        Helps to stimulate hormone and oil-producing glands.

  IV.        Helps to take the load off other organs by helping the eliminative system, discharge metabolic wastes, greatly aiding with the movement of lymph and the lymphatic drainage of the entire body.

   V.        Helps in rejuvenating the nervous system. Helps improve muscle tone and prevent fat deposits, including cellulite.

  VI.        Rejuvenates the skin and improves complexion.

 VII.        Dry skin brushing stimulates the lymph canals to drain toxic lymph matter into the colon, thereby purifying the entire system. This enables the lymph to perform its house-cleaning duties by keeping the blood and other vital tissues detoxified. After several days of dry brushing, you may notice the gelatinous lymph material in your stools.’

Day 3 – Greens & Apples – Juice January 3, 2012

 

Greens & Apples

 Makes 2 glasses

Ingredients:

  • 2 collard greens leaves
  • 2 kale leaves
  • handful of spinach
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 2 – 3 Granny Smith Apples

Directions:

  1. Juice all ingredients in a juicer.
  2. Pour into a shaker with ice and mix well. Enjoy!

Health Tip: Eat your greens! This is such a yummy way to do it.  According to The World’s Healthiest Foods, The cholesterol-lowering ability of collard greens may be the greatest of all commonly eaten cruciferous vegetables. In a recent study, steamed collard greens outshined steamed kale, mustard greens, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage in terms of its ability to bind bile acids in the digestive tract.  Kale, of course, is another super green. The World’s Healthiest Foods reports kale’s risk-lowering benefits for cancer have recently been extended to at least five different types of cancer. These types include cancer of the bladder, breast, colon, ovary, and prostate. Isothiocyanates (ITCs) made from glucosinolates in kale play a primary role in achieving these risk-lowering benefits.

Juices That May Help Accelerate The Healing Of Broken Bones

Kelli Vaccarelli, who is a guest teacher and alternative health advocate, asked me to speak on different types of juice that would help with bone healing. Since I believe in nutritious foods strengthen and heal our bodies and yes even mend broken bones.  The first thing I recommend for helping to heal broken bones  is juices, energy soups and smoothies made with wheat grass, dark leafy green vegetables, sprouted seeds, grains, nuts (nut milk) of course wild edibles, like comfrey and lambs quarters.

All of the aforementined foods, especially any food you have sprouted are nutritional powerhouses and should always be a part of your bone mending program.  All of them are loaded with iron, calcium, potassium, and magnesium, these minerals are proven bone healers. We can’t forget about the vitamins and phytonutrients, especially C, E, K, many of the B vitamins, beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin.  

My favorite green plant is wild comfrey, it has so many amazing medicinal uses. For thousands of years mankind has juiced, made tea and drank comfrey, for many good reasons.

In the case of helping a broken bone to heal it would be my personal first choice.  It has proven to accelerate healing and strengthen broken bones. Unfortunately I would be breaking the law if I told you to juice it or make tea with it, as a resent law has been handed down and it’s no longer legal to ingest comfrey. There is another way to get the benefit of this wonder green and that it to make a poultice with it and apply it over the break. I have also heard that some homeopaths have a tincture that is made from comfrey and they are able to bypass the legal issues of consuming comfrey. I will need to do more research on this one.

Another mineral laden food is sea vegetables and you should try to add them all of your juices. Here at CHI we make sure we have at least 3 teaspoons of these super foods every day. You can blend them in to any juice; I also suggest sprinkling ground sea vegetables, because of their salty taste, on to raw soups, veggies and salads.

What other foods could be used to make up the bone healing juice?

 When you make the bone healing juice, don’t forget to fortify it with seed and/or nut milks. The milks will help speed the mending of broken bones. Make sure all of your nuts and seeds are RAW, organic, soaked and sprouted.  Soaking and sprouting your nuts, seeds, and grains brings out the optimum level of nutrition. My favorite for healing broken bones is sesame milk.

Another thing is, don’t forget to blend in at least a small clove of garlic it will fortify the juice and help reduce inflammation and protect the broken bone from infection.

Kelly, there are dozens of great foods you can juice,  that will help your friend accelerate the healing of the broken bone. Below is a list of some of the ones I would include as long as I remembered to always include the leafy green vegetable-plant and sprouts as the base.

  • Apples
  • Broccoli
  • Carrots
  • Sweet potatoes
  • All Squash
  • Oatmeal- make in to a milk and add to juice
  • Grapes, especially red grapes
  • Grapefruit, especially pink
  • Raw Honey
  • Sprouted Garbanzos
  • Tomato

Kelly, I wish you the happiest new year ever and and hope and pray your friend heals quickly.

As Always,

Bobby

Over time this imbalance in the intestinal flora lowers the immune system, leaving the us open to sickness and disease…

Raw Living Foods – What Are They?

 

Raw Living Food Gives Us The Power To Change…

  • Raw living foods are foods that contain enzymes.
  • Only sprouted raw foods are 100% alive. These are biogenic foods and therefore the most powerful foods, having life force of the germ still intact.
  • Un-sprouted raw foods are in the process of deterioration, due to enzymatic actions.  These are bioactive foods, they are ripe, mature foods, but they do not have the power of the biogenic foods
  • Enzymes start to degrade in as little as 106 degrees F or 41C).
  • Heating food over 118 degrees F or 48 C destroys the vast majority of the enzymes in raw foods
  • 120 degrees F or 49 C enzymes are non-existent in the food and therefore it is cooked food.
  • Most raw foodists do not heat their food above 105 degrees F or 40C.
  • Raw foods contain all the nutrient value inherent in the food.
  • Raw living foods (sprouted) tend to show dramatic increase in nutritional values.
  • Raw foods do not raise white blood cell counts, but improve immune system functions.
  • Raw foods are associated with positive physiological and psychological change which may increase human life spans.
  • Raw foods are known to lower death rates associated with heart attacks – British Medical Journal, 1996.
  • Raw foods have been associated with removing toxic substance from the body.
  • Raw foods enhance  proper digestion and help support the digestive system.
  • Raw foods destroy free radicals.
  • Raw foods are free of carcinogen-causing free radicals.
  • Raw foods may lower colon cancer risks – Journal of Nutrition, 1992
  • Raw foods lower the chances of breast cancer – Journal Epidemiology, 1998.
  • Raw and living foods such as many nuts, seeds, grains, fruits, vegetables, flowers, berries and leafy greens have protein – China Project.
  • Only about one-half the amount of protein, if eaten raw from protein plant food, is necessary – China Project.

After more thant 2 years of research, CHI’s Candida detox and rebuild program has been carefully designed to target the problem by seeking to eliminate the yeast overgrowth on a permanent basis. Sending everyone love peace and health, Bobby

Candida Detoxification & Rebuild Program

NEW CHI PROGRAM FOR 2012: 10 day Candida Detox & Rebuild – Candida is a yeast that grows naturally in the gut, however, when this yeast multiplies out of control it can unbalance your whole system, creating an acidic environment where yeast over-growth and bad bacteria can thrive. Over time this imbalance in the intestinal flora lowers the immune system, leaving the us open to sickness and disease…. In addition, the presence of heavy metals in a person with Candida can mean that even when they are on a strict anti-candida diet the yeast may not be brought under control. After more thant 2 years of research, CHI’s Candida detox and rebuild program has been carefully designed to target the problem by seeking to eliminate the yeast overgrowth on a permanent basis. Sending everyone love peace and health, Bobby

Fibroids – Comforting Herbs and Supplements You May Want To Talk To Your Dr. About

 

 

Curcumin

EGCG – Green tea

Genistein

Serrapeptase

Nattokinase

MSM

A Description of What May Be Naturally Comforting Herbs And Supplements

CURCUMIN A recent study, showed the inhibitory effect of curcumin on leiomyoma cells proliferation. These experimental findings in vitro show that the inhibitory effect of curcumin on eiomyoma cell proliferation occurs through the activation of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma. Curcumin may be useful as an alternative therapy for uterine leiomyoma. Inhibitory effect of curcumin on uterine leiomyoma cell proliferation. Center for Asian Traditional Medicine, Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine, Sendai, Japan. Gynecol Endocrinol. 2010.

EGCG – Found in green tea effectively inhibits proliferation and induces apoptosis in rat uterine leiomyoma cells in vitro and in vivo. Am J Obstet Gynecol. 2010. Green tea extract inhibits proliferation of uterine leiomyoma cells in vitro and in nude mice. Center for Women’s Health Research, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Meharry Medical College, Nashville, TN, USA.

GENISTEIN – Experimental findings in vitro, show that the repressive effect of genistein on E(2)-induced leiomyoma cell proliferation is through the activation of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma. Genistein may be useful as an alternative therapy for leiomyoma. Gynecol Endocrinol. 2009 Jun;25(6):403-9.Repressive effect of the phytoestrogen genistein on estradiol-induced uterine leiomyoma cell proliferation.Miyake A, Takeda T, Isobe A, Wakabayashi A, Nishimoto F, Morishige K, Sakata M, Kimura T.Center for Asian Traditional Medicine, Tohoku University Graduate School of Medicine, Aoba, Sendai, Japan.

SERRAPEPTASE One of the newest ways to deal with fibroids and tissue build-up may be Serrapeptase. Serrapeptase with when combined with MSM and Nattokinase has been shown to reduce fibroids and relieve cramps during menstrual cycles.  Its reported that grapefruit-sized fibroids been reduced  to approximate size of golf ball at 3-4 months.

Nattokinase – This proteolytic enzyme which comes from soy is used in Japan to dissolve fibroids. Experts speculate that it may be helpful in dissolving uterine fibroids.

 

MSM – Methyl sulfonyl menthane must be in its purest form to work. No anti-caking ingredients or additives can be present because they block the bioavailability of sulfur to the cells.  Be sure to buy the purest organic sulfur possible.

Other herbs and suppliments which have been taken to help with fibroids are:

Wild Yam- Hormone Balancer, Chaste Berry – slows growth , Cats Claw – reduces inflammation, Black Cohosh – Blances estrogen, Essiac Tea – detoxifier & slows growth,

The Healing Aspects of Water

 Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard. This is another paradox: what is soft is strong – Lao-Tzu
During my time as health and education director at Creative Health Institute I have seen the healing miracles which take place when our guests quench their thirst and fill their bodies in H20.

Did You Know:

  • Studies show that just drinking 8 cups (64oz) of water daily can decrease the risk of colon cancer by 45%, bladder cancer by 50% and it can potentially even reduce the risk of breast cancer.
  • Headaches even migraines are signs that water is needed. Continued dehydration of the brain causes inflammation and can even bring on a coma and death. Simply drinking the proper ratios of water to your body weight you can eliminate most all headaches and reduce migraine pain.
  • Studies show that water is important in the management of cholesterol. High cholesterol levels have been linked to mild to severe dehydration. When the test subjects balanced their water to weight ratios they experienced drops significant drops in their cholesterol.
  • Studies show that dehydration causes the vascular system constrict, causing hypertension. Rehydrating the body by drinking half of the body weight in ounces has produced remarkable results in lowering hypertension without drugs.
  • All joint pain and back pain can be reduced by keeping your weight and water intake ratios in balance.
  • Today, more than 17 million children suffer from asthma. Studies show that many of the children would not suffer from the effects of the asthma if they were to just drink half of their body weight in ounces of water every day.
  • Studies have shown dehydration is a known factor in dementia and drinking the proper ratio of one to body weight helps manage the symptoms of dementia. Proper hydration may also help reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Lou Gehrig’s disease.
  • Studies have shown that oxidation caused by free radicals, pollutants, chemicals, pesticides, radiation and toxic metals enter the brain with its blood supply.
  • The Advanced Learning and Development Institute found that one of the best sources of antioxidants for their participants has been alkaline drinking water. Adding alkaline water to their treatment protocol program has significantly helped many of their patients in cognitive function, showing as much as a 35 percent improvement.
  • When you feel the onset of heartburn, it is most likely your body signaling that you have a shortage of water in the upper part of your gastrointestinal tract. Drink 3 cups of water and experience the magical disappearance of the pain.
  • Colitis is one of the fastest growing areas of diseases being treated by allopathic medicine. The pain associated with colitis comes from the large intestine squeezing the water out of the excrement. When we are properly hydrated we can avoid the pain of colitis and the onset of other diseases such as ulcerated colitis, internal hemorrhoids, external hemorrhoids, appendicitis, inflammatory bowel disease diverticulitis, polyps, constipation, and possibly colon cancer.
  • Studies show if you are only 1% dehydrated, you will likely have a 5% decrease in cognitive function. If your brain drops 2% in body water, you may suffer from fuzzy short-term memory, experience problems with focusing, and have trouble with math computations, all you need to overcome these problems is to balance your water to bodily weight ratio.

Be blessed and drink at least 1/2 yur body weight in ounces of pure clean water everyday.

Glass or Plastic? What Is Your Water Bottle Made Of?

Glass or Plastic?

Due to the low cost of manufacturing and shipping, plastic containers are the primary choice of the bottled water industry, which in their thinking keeps the price down for the consumer. The problem with this is that scientists are finding that it not such a good deal for us because the hidden cost may be our health.

Studies have shown that chemicals called phthalates, which are known to disrupt testosterone and other hormones, can leach into bottled water over time. One study found that water that had been stored for 10 weeks in plastic contained phthalates, suggesting that the chemicals could be coming from the plastic bottle or even the cap. Although there are regulatory standards limiting phthalates in tap water, there are no legal limits for phthalates in bottled water — the bottled water industry waged a successful campaign opposing the FDA proposal to set a legal limit for these chemicals!

 Plastic Recycling Codes

The following plastics are considered safest for water and food storage. Check all your plastic containers to make sure these symbols and the numbers 1,2,4 and 5 are on them. If these symbols and number are not present on plastic container or bottle, or you see another symbol and/or number do not drink or eat anything from this container.

Though the following numbers represent the safest plastics, this does not mean we have a complete understanding of all the possible health hazards plastics may present. So, the best practice would be to not drink from plastic bottles or store items in plastic, and never heat water or food items in them. Remember clean glass containers are always the best option.

 Polyethylene terephthalate ethylene (PETE), code 1.

 High-density polyethylene (HDPE), code 2.

 Low-density polyethylene (LDPE), code 4.

 Polypropylene (PP), code 5.

 ALWAYS AVOID ANY PLASTIC WITH THESE CODES

 CODE (3) Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) leach phthalates which cause major problems with hormones and are toxic to them male reproductive system. It can be marked by code 3. If a water bottle, plastic wrap, shampoo container, cooking oil container, blood bag or meat wrapping has this mark or number or is not marked at all find a new brand!

CODE (6) –  Polystyrene is used in Styrofoam products. It leaches styrene (a neurotoxin) when it comes into contact with hot, acidic, or fatty foods. This cup is used being used by many fast food and coffee shops to serve hot drinks in.  What you may have thought was a caffeine buzz, was the neurotoxins being released into you coffee or tea.  This chemical is also found in the most medicine and vitamin bottles, WOW, plastic cutlery, foam packaging and the cartons you may be get your eggs in.  It’s marked with recycling code 6.

CODE (7) – Polycarbonate containers leach bisphenol-A (BPA), an endocrine disruptor associated with a long list of health concerns, including obesity. Baby bottles, “sippy” cups, ketchup bottles, syrups, window cleaners, 5-gallon water cooler bottles, reusable water jugs, and reusable beverage bottles are typically made out of this plastic. Products may be marked with recycling code 7 and/or the letters “PC.” It’s important to note some containers that aren’t made from polycarbonate may also be marked with a code 7 because the category also includes any plastic that doesn’t fit into the 1 to 6 recycling code categories.  

May your life be blessed with health, peace and love.

Colonics & Colon Health

There are those who say your body does a good enough job of detoxifying without needing to do colonics, or any other type of bowel cleansing. That may have been true 50 years ago, but unfortunately that is not our situation today. Most of us live stressed filled lives, live in which we are exposed to so many chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, toxic residues in our environment and our foods. To reclaim our health we must do everything we can to bring the body into homeostasis, which includes paying attention to the health of our colon.

Colon hydrotherapy is a gentle internal bath using warm purified water to cleanse the anus, rectum, sigmoid colon, descending colon, transverse colon, ascending colon, and the caecum.

This bath is important as the colon plays a major role in detoxifying our bodies. Along with assimilating nutrients it is responsible for eliminating food and other body waste. As the colon does its work, It strengthens and protects our immune system from infection and disease. In a normal functioning colon there are billions of friendly bacteria along with non-friendly bacteria; in fact these bacteria make up 60 to 70% of our fecal waste. The friendly bacteria are responsible for keeping the ecosystem of our digestive track in balance and the unfriendly bacteria must be reduced as it causes many health problems. The unfriendly bacteria increase when the colons elegant balance is thrown out of order, by stress, chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, toxic residues and poor food choices.  Unfortunately, most of us do not have healthy bowels. Suffering from heartburn, indigestion, bloating, gas, constipation and diarrhea are extremely common, with well over 60 million Americans purchasing laxatives and antacids, spending over $1 billion on over- the- counter drugs every year.

Dr. Ann Wigmore, taught that all disease starts in the colon…

Important Points

To remain in homeostasis our bodies should eliminate the food we had eaten within 24 hour’s.

  • Those persons, who eat the standard Western diet do not digest and eliminate their food in a timely and healthy manner. The average time the food remains in the digestive is from 60 to 70 hours.
  • Constipation is one of the most frequent gastrointestinal complaints in Western countries. Each year in the United States there are over 2.5 million visits to doctors, by patients who are constipated.
  • Those who are constantly constipated, or do not have regular bowel movements after eating, create unnecessary stresses on all of their bodies systems.
  • The bowel is greatly affected when it is not healthy and balanced and diseases such as colonic polyps, diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerated colitis, and colorectal cancer have become quite common in those who indulge in the standard American diet.
  • The following illustration shows some of the diseases and problems that affect our digestive system.

Colonic Q&A

Why Do I Need A Colonic?

Fact: Auto intoxication takes place when old waste and toxic materials which are stored in your bowel enter the circulatory system and affect every organ and biological process in your body. When you suffer from auto intoxication you may feel ill, tired, loaded, depressed, lacking in energy, low sex drive and weak. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may benefit from colon hydrotherapy.

Fact: You may want to consider a colonic or an enema if you suspect that you have a health challenge in any of the following areas: Constipation, Candidiasis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Ulcerative Colitis, Crohns Disease, Colitus, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Cancer, Hemorrhoids, Prostatitis, Enlarged Prostate, Allergies, Leaky Gut Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Gallstones, MS, Infertility, Acne, Eczema, Psoriasis, Body Odor, Mouth Odor, Peeling Lips, Rosacea, ALS, AIDS, Parasites, Infectious Diseases.

What Is Colon Irrigation, Colon Hydrotherapy?

Fact: Colon irrigation is a gentle effective procedure for removing fecal matter, yeast, mucoid plaque, excess mucus, chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, food toxins, environmental toxins, anaerobic bacteria and parasites.

Fact:  The human colon is approximately 5 feet long and 2 1/2 inches in diameter.

Fact:  During your 45-60 minute hydrotherapy session, your therapist will introduce 15 to 35 gallons of warm filtered water into your colon. This water will remove impacted feces, dead cellular tissue, mucoid plaque, excess mucus, parasites, worms, yeast,

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

FACT: The number of treatments will be discussed with your therapist. Your therapist will assess your treatment requirements and will discuss them in detail with you. Depending on the condition of your colon, your therapist may advise a number of therapies spread out over a period of time after which you may want to enter into a preventive maintenance program.

Will I Be Embarrassed?

Fact: Our colonics room is en-suite, so there’s changing and toilet facilities right where you need them.
Fact: You will remove your lower garments while in complete privacy and then lie on the colonic table and cover yourself with a warm blanket, sheet or both. Then and only then will your therapist enter the room.
Fact: Your therapist will then only uncover the small area where the speculum will be inserted. The therapist will do a quick visual check for any hemorrhoids, etc. From this point on you will be completely covered.

Are Colonics Painful?

Fact: Some people, if they have large internal or external hemorrhoids may experience a slight irritation or pressure sensation when the speculum is initially inserted. Your therapist will work to make the experience comfortable.
Fact:  When the bowels are impacted or you have had chronic constipation there may be some cramping when the colonic first begins. This will not last more than a few seconds. Your therapist will be monitoring your comfort level and will regulate the flow of the water, so you will not experience cramping.
Fact: Your therapist will do some ‘fills’ – where the water goes and you will feel an increased pressure in your bowel. When you feel like you need to go to the toilet your therapist will release the water the moment you tell them to. Your therapist is a trained professional and will be continually monitoring your progress and comfort levels.

 Can Colonics Perforate My Bowel?

 Fact: No

Fact: A normal bowel movement can build pressures of about 1.5 pounds per square inch.
Fact: A standard hospital enema applies pressure at about 2 pounds per square inch.
Fact: Our gravity-fed colonic system introduces water at a pressure of about 1.5 – 2 pounds per square inch.

Can I Catch Disease From Having A Colonic?

Fact: The water used for your therapy is clean double filtered.
Fact: Your colonic is performed using a disposable speculum and hose kit. For those who are use to a standard metal speculum which utilizes clinical heat sterilization which exceeds health department standards, insuring a safe therapy session, you may request your therapist to use this speculum instead of the disposable speculum.

 Don’t Colonics Remove The Good Bacteria From My Bowel?

Fact: Colonics wash out both the good and bad bacteria as well as any trapped gases, waste matter and toxins.

Fact: Your body will immediately begin to place good bacteria into your bowels. To ensure that the bowel flora is as healthy as possible we will provide a probiotic supplement at the end of your colonic therapy. You may choose a probiotic in the form of a capsule, or utilize the rejuvelac which we prepare for you.

 Fact: it is advisable to do a rejuvelac implant after your colonic therapy.

 

Will I Need To Be Near A Toilet After My Colonic Therapy?

Fact: Once your therapy session is complete you will come off the table and immediately go to the toilet as normal. The fecal matter which comes out will be watery, there’s no ‘leaking’ or cramping problems afterwards. You can go about your normal activities.

 In times past, knowledge of the bowel was more widespread and people were

taught how to care for the bowel. Somehow, bowel wisdom got lost and it became

something that no one wanted to talk about anymore.”
