My scientist friend asked how to detox or clean his body from toxins

Over the years, I have experienced family and friends dying of cancer. I observed their lifestyle and toxins they are exposed to. So to answer my friend’s question on how to detox and the mechanism of cleaning our body or getting rid of toxins, I listed some items for Dos and Donts.

Our lymphatic system which travels opposite our blood is responsible for cleaning our blood.  Search for lymphatic, massage and detox in this site http://www.clubalthea.com

When we clean the many bad foods or toxins that entered our body, we must clean our liver first, our laboratory.  It is closely linked to our heart that during our last breath, our liver is the first and last signal that our heart gets to shut down.

Detox or cleaning our cells from toxins is the key to living longer, the anti-aging process we all are seeking for. In my 50s, I could have died long time ago if I was born centuries ago with no clean water, fresh produce and raising a dozen children. Each child is minus 5 years of a woman’s age.

Detox is like cleaning the toilet. The following are detox tips and anti-aging tips to clean your cells:

Dos in cleansing your body from toxin, also detoxes your liver

  • Massage
  • Adequate sleep
  • Filtered water
  • Lemon
  • Baking soda (pinch in your drinking water)
  • Activated charcoal
  • Digestive enzymes from pineapple and papaya
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Wash produce with salt or diluted vinegar
  • No over ripe fruits and left over foods or 3-day old rice ( aflatoxin , mycotoxin )
  • No charred BBQ
  • Whole foods ; sulfur rich as they are anti-inflammatory (ginger, garlic, turmeric, coconut, walnuts)
  • Deep breathing thru nose and blow out thru mouth
  • Prayer: May God’s light energy be with you and say Amen to accept it.
  • Resveratrol from Berries, kiwi, citrus fruit
  • Fasting
  • Activated charcoal
  • Clean air

Donts are ways that when practiced or consumed can kills our nerve cells and produce toxins in our cells.

  • Avoidance of too much caffeine, iron and sugar, these are food for cancer
  • Other metal toxins
  • TRANS fat
  • Processed
  • Plastics in food
  • Stress
  • Shift work: not sleeping from 10pm to 4 am
  • Radiation
  • Over medications, chemo, other carcinogens
  • Avoid exposure to fumes, chemicals (formaldehydes,carcinogens,toxins)

Foods to eat and avoid when you have Gout and leg pains

Gout

Gout, a painful form of arthritis, occurs when high levels of uric acid in the blood cause crystals to form and accumulate around a joint.

Uric acid is produced when the body breaks down a chemical called purine. Purine occurs naturally in your body, but it’s also found in certain foods. Uric acid is eliminated from the body in urine.

  • High-purine vegetables. Studies have shown that vegetables high in purines do not increase the risk of gout or recurring gout attacks. A healthy diet based on lots of fruits and vegetables can include high-purine vegetables, such as asparagus, ginger spinach, peas, cauliflower or mushrooms. You can also eat beans or lentils, which are moderately high in purines but are also a good source of protein.  Greens rich in sulfur such as asparagus, broccoli, parsley, celery , carrots, cucumbers, red onion, tomatoes, bell peppers, lettuce ,zucchini, squash ,pumpkin , watermelon, green beans, cinnamon, black currants berries for tea, nettle soup, and probiotics such as pickled greens and yogurt.Green home-made smoothie of pear, apples, cucumber, parsely, cilantro, coconut water and pineapple helped my friend Luis, to be gout free in 6months.
  • Eat high potassium rich foods.  Potassium citrate helps alkalize your urine and improves the excretion of uric acid. Potassium is widely available in fruits and vegetables. The most beneficial sources include broccoli, celery, avocado, spinach and romaine lettuce. If you want to supplement, consider using potassium bicarbonate, which is probably the best potassium source to use as a supplement.
  • Avoid sugar. Uric acid is a byproduct of fructose metabolism. In fact, fructose is the ONLY type of sugar that will raise your uric acid levels and will typically generate uric acid within minutes of ingestion. The ideal range for uric acid is between 3 to 5.5 mg/dL. The connection between fructose consumption and increased uric acid is so reliable that a uric acid level taken from your blood can actually be used as a marker for fructose toxicity.
  • Avoid Organ and glandular meats, high in purines. Avoid meats such as liver, kidney and sweetbreads, which have high purine levels and contribute to high blood levels of uric acid.  Organ meats, brewer’s yeast, sardines and tuna packed in oil, chicken livers and beef fillet all have over 100 mg of purine per 100 g of product.24 Foods high in purine will breakdown to uric acid.
  • Avoid Selected seafood. Avoid the following types of seafood, which are higher in purines than others: anchovies, herring, sardines, mussels, scallops, trout, haddock, mackerel and tuna.
  • Avoid Alcohol. The metabolism of alcohol in your body is thought to increase uric acid production, and alcohol contributes to dehydration. Beer is associated with an increased risk of gout and recurring attacks, as are distilled liquors to some extent. The effect of wine is not as well-understood. If you drink alcohol, talk to your doctor about what is appropriate for you.
  • Vitamin C. Vitamin C may help lower uric acid levels. Talk to your doctor about whether a 500-milligram vitamin C supplement fits into your diet and medication plan.  Vit C rich citrus fruits such as lemon, digestive enzymes from pineapple, papaya and mangoes. Good fats in avocado, coconut and fruits such as apples, kiwi,plums, pomelo, pears, cherries, peaches, blackberries.
  • Coffee. Some research suggests that moderate coffee consumption may be associated with a reduced risk of gout, particularly with regular caffeinated coffee. Drinking coffee may not be appropriate for other medical conditions. Talk to your doctor about how much coffee is right for you.
  • Cherries. There is some evidence that eating cherries is associated with a reduced risk of gout attacks.
  • Avoid: Prescription drugs, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which are the norm when it comes to treating gout, have been proven to do you more harm than good.
  • Reduce stress, sleep more and Practice Grounding.  Grounding or earthing is the process of walking or standing barefoot on bare earth, permitting free electrons from the earth to enter your body. These powerful antioxidants combat free radicals in your system.Grounding may reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease and may thin your blood, both good things when you want to reduce your risk for gout. If you want to try grounding, start by walking in a dewy, grassy area barefoot.If you live near a large body of water, that’s a great location for walking barefoot, as seawater is a good conductor.
  • Here are the most popular natural home remedies voted by gout sufferers:

    1. Apple Cider Vinegar: ACV is considered king when it comes to a gout natural home remedy and it’s my most popular post voted by social media. ACV helps your body become more alkaline and the acidity helps relieve acute gout pain. Many gout sufferers report drinking 1-2  tablespoons of raw unfiltered and organic apple cider vinegar in a glass of at least 8 ounces of water. Some will drink this 2-3 times a day for better results. ACV can also be used as topical treatment. You you can soak your foot for about 30 minutes in a bucket full of 4 cups of hot water and 1 cup of apple cider vinegar. You can also soak a clean, dry cloth in apple cider vinegar and wrap it around the affected area for about 15 minutes.

    2. Baking Soda: Another extremely popular natural home remedy for gout sufferers is baking soda. Like apple cider vinegar, it makes your body more alkaline. Many consume ½ a teaspoon in a glass of 8 oz. water.Many will repeat this throughout the day until they have consumed at least 3 teaspoons of baking soda. It helps lower uric acid providing with relief from the pain at the same time. Avoid this home remedy if suffering from high blood pressure and try to limit salt intake in your meals during the day when taking baking soda. Baking soda is very high in sodium. The maximum recommended dose is 4 teaspoons throughout the day.

    3. Cherries: Whether sweet or sour, cherries have been known to be extremely effective in treating gout and lowering uric acid due to their high antioxidant properties. In one study conducted with 600 people suffering from gout, it was concluded that eating half a cup serving of cherries daily (10-12 cherries) resulted in a 35% reduced risk of a successive gout attack. For those eating 2 or even 3 servings in a day, their risk dropped to 50%! But that is too much sugar as well which can cause other health ailments. Best recommendation is to use a tart cherry extract supplement and avoid the sugar intake if you can!

    4. Ginger and/or Turmeric: The powerful anti-inflammatories present in ginger root and turmeric can be very helpful in easing gout pain and inflammation. I basically chop off a little piece the size of an inch and boil it for about 20 minutes and drink it as tea. You can also add ginger root and/or turmeric in cooking recipes. Some may also eat a small piece raw daily. Others use it topically to reduce swelling by making a paste of ginger root with water and then apply it to the affected area, leaving it on for about 30 minutes.

  • Connie’s comments: My 80 yr old mother has been taking zyflamend capsule, combo of turmeric and ginger for her leg pains in the past.
  • From my friend Luis:
  •  2-apples (preferably green)
    2-pears
    2-carrots
    2-celery sticks
    2-lemon (peeled)
    1-ginger root (thumb size)
    1-turmeric root (thumb size)
    Clean ingredients and put all in juicer. Add a pinch of ground pepper to the juice. The pepper enhances efficacy of turmeric and its absorption to the body.
    You may substitute apples and pears with pineapple fruit.

Nettle leaf tea and cranberries cured her UTI

best pics from drone

Your health and life can be saved by knowing the health benefits of what is in your kitchen cupboards or practical health knowledge and support from the people around you. My 79 yr old mother has been in the  USA for over 13 years. She was born and raised in the  Philippines where she is used to the herbal remedies that surround her environment. She now lives in San Jose California.

Yesterday, she complained of painful urination. As her daughter and knowing what I know now about herbs, health and practical application of healing remedies, I went to Whole Foods to pick up what I learned will help her. Nettle leaf tea, cranberries chews and dried cranberries, and Zyflamend caps of turmeric and ginger. I reminded her to observe proper hygiene. Eight hours later, and the inflammation subsided after drinking warm tea of nettle leaf (2 tea bags) , 4 caps of turmeric+ginger in Zyflamend, chews of cranberries and dried ones too.

Urinary tract infection is one of the top five most common  disorders among the elderly and most prevalent in Emergency Rooms.

 anti arthritis coconut oil or balm

Dear Friends, 
 
See you all Sat and Sunday afternoon at my San Jose house to launch my first product, an anti-arthritis balm/oil which can be used internally or externally. It is priced around $50 per 16 oz container.  Your feedback is important to me. I will announce this at my blog today, www.clubalthea.com . It contains turmeric, ginger, coconut oil, grapeseed oil and peppermit essential oil. My curiosity and exposure at Whole Foods created a spark in this product. I also was encouraged to create one as my mom was seeking a massage balm for her arthritis at age 79. I used the oil for my body as massage healing oil to ward off any disease process that might be growing as a result of aging and menopause.
 
My mom and I tested the product. The original coconut oil was bought at Whole Foods. I am using the same container. I have not yet asked Esther, my artist daughter, for the art cover design. I also plan to sell the formula to Whole Foods and Doterra.com
 
You may forward  this email to others. Sorry for the short notice. When creativity strikes, you have to capture the moment right away.
