Kill parasites with these herbs

Garlic

Garlic is anti-bad-stuff. Viruses, fungi, bacteria, parasites, cancer, and vampires all hate garlic. It’s an absolutely amazing herb and the best in the business at killing bad stuff. It even chelates heavy metals (removes them from the body). Garlic is also a very powerful deterrent for blood sucking parasites like mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas.

Black Walnut-Nuts & Hull

The nuts and green hulls of black walnut (Juglans nigra) are loved by herbalists for their ability to cleanse the blood and the intestines. Black walnut hull is used to cure fungal infections. The juice from the green hulls are used to kill parasites. Only green hulls should be used.

Wormwood

Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) is a perennial herb with tiny yellow-green flowers. Leaves and flowers are used to treat stomach problems and wormwood is a powerful remedy for intestinal worms. Wormwood should be avoided by women who or nursing. Wormwood has strong antimicrobial properties and is used for other infections as well.

Cloves

Clove essential oil is used to dissolve eggs found in the intestines that have been left behind by worms. It’s believed to be the only herb that actually does destroy almost all parasite eggs. When used in conjunction with black walnut and wormwood, the trio break the parasite’s life-cycles. Clove is also antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal. Clove oil has powerful broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties.

Thyme

Thyme is one of the best herbs for stimulating the thymus, a major gland of the immune system. Thyme helps stimulate the body’s natural defenses and works very well with echinacea to boost the ability of our immune system. Oil of thyme can eliminate growth of many parasites, and it kills them in the intestinal tract.

Oil of Oregano

Oil of oregano is infused with extremely high levels of free-radical-crushing antioxidants, and it is antiparasitic, antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal. It is a powerful, indiscriminate killer that can reset the microbial environment in the intestines. Many studies show the effectiveness of oil of oregano with everything from parasitical infections to cancer.

Chinese Goldthread

Goldthread (Coptis chinensis) has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries to treat all types of infections, including bacterial, parasitic, yeast, and protozoan. It contains a substance called berberine, which is responsible for the broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties.

Diatomaceous Earth

Food grade diatomaceous earth absorbs methyl mercury, E. coli, endotoxins, viruses, organophosphate pesticide residues, and drug residues. Its positive effects include killing intestinal parasites, balancing the intestinal flora, killing viruses, and absorbing toxins. It’s great for intestinal cleanses. The only side effect known is its ability to irritate the lungs if inhaled; it is a very fine powder.

Cramp Bark Tea

Cramp bark is an herb often taken in tea form that can treat female problems like irritability and cramps associated with the menstrual cycle. The herb is hailed as a stomach cramp remedy in Russia, and helps to flush parasites from the body’s intestinal system. In addition to killing parasites, cramp bark can lower blood pressure and treat colds and coughing. Some cramp bark teas also include pumpkin seed extract, another anti-parasite herbal supplement that stunts the growth of intestinal worms. According to the University of Maryland, eating pumpkin seeds is an effective way to get rid of parasites.

Peppermint Tea

Peppermint tea is effective in treating intestinal parasites, and is also an herbal remedy for cramps and bloating. Peppermint also aids the salivary glands during the digestion process, and helps to relieve individuals suffering from bowel ailments. While peppermint has powerful antibacterial properties and can rid the body of parasites and other toxins, it’s best to consult a physician before drinking the herb tea on a regular basis, as taking conventional antifungal medications along with peppermint could cause toxic effects that intensify sickness.

Fennel Seed Tea

Fennel is a perennial herb ground into a tea; it is rich in potassium, zinc and vitamin C. Fennel tea can kill worms in the intestines and is also a natural treatment for diarrhea. According to The Brightest Hub website, fennel tea can also rid the body of infections like conjunctivitis, or pink eye. The tea will also act as a diuretic and flush excess liquid from the body, which includes toxins like parasites or worms. Fennel tea is an appetite suppressant, so some individuals use fennel along with other herbs or supplements for weight loss.

Hyssop Tea

Hyssop contains a hormone that makes the body more resistant to disease and can stop parasites from doing further damage in the body. The evergreen herb can be ground into a tea and is even mentioned several times in the Bible for its cleansing and purging properties. The tea has a minty flavor, and, aside from eliminating parasitic worms from the stomach, is an herbal remedy for fever blisters and bronchitis. Hyssop also helps to relieve anxiety and calm the nerves, and rids the body of phlegm and harmful fluids.

Reset gene expression of fat cells to younger you

TR-90 – a product that reset genetic expression of fat cells. It essentially transformed the genetic expression back to a more youthful one in your 20’s where you burned fat more easily and stored it less easily.  This is the product that I personally used to lose 10 lbs and a significant amount of body fat – easily and painlessly – in three months.  This product was, however, very targeted and affected only the expression of genes related to fat cells and metabolism.

Success at the World Cup by Daniel Kaufmann

Our statistical analysis points to two relevant determinants.

First, the quality of democratic governance of the country is significant. Whether the country exhibits high levels of voice and democratic accountability—namely protecting civil society space, media freedoms, and civil and political liberties—matters significantly, controlling for other factors. If, among its World Cup peers, a country rated in the top third in the voice and accountability indicator of the Worldwide Governance Indicators (WGI), it had a 70 percent chance of advancing to the round of 16, while if it ranked in the bottom third it only had a 30 percent probability of advancing.

Second, we find that home field advantage and the extent of the fan base at the World Cup (number of fans traveling to the Cup to cheer for their national team) also matters, explaining part of the success of teams from North, Central and South America in advancing to the second stage (see Figure 1).

Both determinants of soccer success may be related, reflecting the flip sides of the coin. To an extent, fan support for their national team may be the (bottom-up) counterpart to the (top-down) enabling accountability environment provided by each government. Citizen empowerment and participation does matter in soccer as well, as the free media and fan base passionately encourages their national team, while also holding them accountable.

This ought not shock us, since these determinants extend well beyond soccer; it is what we find matters enormously for development success in general, and in particular in countries seeking to harness their own natural resources for socio-economic progress. Voice and accountability, as well as citizen feedback, is also found to matter for the success of public institutions and NGOs.

It may not be a coincidence, therefore, that countries like Russia, Cameroon, Honduras and Iran went out during the first round, while Costa Rica, Chile, Uruguay, Switzerland and the United States advanced.

Following the games in the second round, the number of teams left shrunk to eight last week, and, with countries like Algeria and Nigeria exiting at that stage, no team with even relatively low standards of democratic governance (i.e., rating in the bottom half of voice and accountability indicator in the WGI) made it to the quarterfinals. Following this weekend’s quarterfinal games, there are four teams left standing in the semifinal games: Brazil vs. Germany and Argentina vs. the Netherlands, each team harboring high hopes to lift the cup next Sunday.

While neither Argentina nor Brazil match the quality of democratic governance of their respective European contenders, both have made significant strides since the military regime days of a generation ago, and now rate in the top half of the voice and democratic accountability governance indicator. And, importantly, both South American teams have a significant “home field” and fan base advantage over Germany and the Netherlands: Brazil is the host, and Argentina, its neighbor, has about 100,000 fans crossing the border to support its team (the second largest contingent of visitors after the United States). Hence, in terms of a likely winner, our statistical results would suggest that both quarterfinals could go either way, since the teams with higher governance standards have the lower fan base.

Obviously, even if governance matters, winning games is not all about democratic governance at the national level, and about passionate “civil society” support in the stadium for a team. Governance also matters at an organizational level, namely the cohesiveness and effectiveness of a team beyond the individual quality of each player, can make a big difference.  In fact, in previous writings we have offered one definition of good governance as the ability of a team to be more than the sum of its parts.  During this Cup, Costa Rica, Chile, France and the United States illustrated such good governance at the team level, in contrast to Cameroon, Ghana, Italy or Spain, each producing so little in spite of their individual stars. In the South Africa World Cup four years ago, Ghana exemplified good governance as a team, in contrast with France’s team then, which was the polar opposite, and so was the Argentina team, at the time poorly managed by Diego Maradona.

Heads I Win, Tails You Lose

Beyond national governance and civic space, there are luck factors that make a difference.  An injury like the Brazilian star Neymar’s (now out of the World Cup) may end up mattering for Brazil’s fate, and, conversely, for Argentina, so might one more of those inspired plays by Leo Messi. Another misstep by a referee can also make the difference.

Luck may determine who wins the Cup in other ways, unrelated to the “luck of the draw” in the first rounds’ group assignments (which we found doesn’t make a difference). Instead, what may still matter is the “luck of the coin toss” in penalty shootouts forced by tied games. Apaper by Apesteguia and Palacios-Huerta in the American Economic Review that draws on almost 3,000 penalty kicks over roughly 40 years of major international soccer and points to psychological factors, finds that the team that kicks the first penalty has a 60 percent probability of winning the penalty shootout! No wonder their paper also finds that the team that wins the coin toss always opts to kick first.

And no wonder that, so far during the current World Cup, the chance of the team kicking first during a penalty shootout winning is 66.6 percent. Costa Rica and Brazil—kicking first—won their respective shootouts against Greece and Chile in the round of eight, while the Netherlands won their shootout against Costa Rica in this weekend’s quarterfinals in spite of shooting second (but countered that by opting to substitute their starting goalkeeper with a penalty specialist, who blocked two shots!).

Soccer pundits tend to decry the penalty shootout, claiming that it is tantamount to a lottery. In fact, the above suggests that it is akin to loaded dice instead, where the lottery is actually in the coin toss, which then loads the deck in favor of the team that wins the coin toss.

But there is a fix, also drawn from the paper authors: If the penalty shootout is kept, at least FIFA authorities could organize it like the ordering of the respective serves in tennis tiebreakers. The fair penalty shootout option would be run like this instead: The first penalty is taken by the toss coin winner, then the next two penalties by the other team, then the next two by the coin toss winner, and so on, until 10 penalty kicks are completed. If they are tied at that point, they keep taking two penalties per team, alternating which team kicks first.

Brief Organizational and Policy Implications

These evidence-based insights point to two very different types of recommendations for FIFA.  One refers to the rules in settling a game, namely changing how the game tiebreaker is conducted in order to at least ensure that the ‘dice is not loaded’, as per suggestion described above. That should not be unthinkable; after all, following the last World Cup outcry over the goal denied to England against Germany when the ball had clearly crossed the line, FIFA slowly relented and adopted goal line technology—akin to tennis again.

In addition, this work supports the implied message from successful soccer nations to FIFA: Democratic governance matters and so does the fan base of a country. But the odds of FIFA listening to this message are rather slim, because it would mean that the perennial top leadership in this autocratically run organization would have to exit, for starters, allowing for a semblance of democratic transition.

More broadly, we are reminded that just as we have learned that sending billions of dollars in foreign aid, or being rich in natural resources, doesn’t guarantee socio-economic development for a country and benefits to the people, neither oil riches nor money alone can “buy” national soccer success either. What makes the difference is good governance.

Alzheimer’s Disease, how can we prevent it?

Toxic inflammatory agents around us, coupled with our lifestyle and genes can influence the way our brain cells create memory tangles that lead to Alzheimer’s Disease, a brain degenerative disorder.

Many in the northern part of the world are susceptible to it, because of the lack of Vitamin D, which is important in the absorption of Calcium and magnesium, important minerals in the growth of 90% of our body cells.

We have ingested other substances that prevent the absorption of calcium such as phosphates in our soda, free calcium in TUMS and other meds or preservatives.

What is key to a healthy brain is more than not eating so much pork, sugar, drugs or alcohol but using it as the saying goes, “Use your memory or you lose it”.

Sugar, fats and other inflammatory toxic substances can alter the growth of our brain cells, going disarray. If sleep  can help detox our body and brain cells, stress can prevent the slow death of our brain cells.

We can help create healthy brain cells if we consume coconut oil, vitamins E, C, D and B complex (anti-stress) and avoid toxins from asbestos, aluminum to drugs/meds.

And avoid inflammation with colored foods and stress free lifestyle. Be more active, as the food we take accounts for the 50% of the balance needed together with whole foods to achieve a high anti-oxidant level in our body cells.

The fight to a healthy you depends on choices you make each day, worries you occupy your important time with, foods you put in to your bodies and the avoidance of inflammatory toxins around us.
