Lymph System and Colon Detox, Easy and Inexpensive, The Natural Way

Two simple and inexpensive ways
to Detox your Lymph System and Colon!

You may ask why?

The answer is that we all acquire toxins in our blood and lymph
system. So it is a good idea to periodically flush the system to
maintain optimum health. The older we get the more important it
becomes. If we do not detoxify the toxins can build up and causes all
sorts of diseases.
For the last several years I have been looking for a method that
is effective, inexpensive, efficient, and does not take days to
complete. The two methods described below meet all of these

A cure for Cancer the Natural Way Yes! It's True.

This post is in honor of my Dad who died of Leukemia (1979) and my mother who died of ovarian cancer (1993), both whom I believe would not have died had they known of what I am about to share with you. the information has been out there from the late 40's on, it has just been withheld from us by the American Cancer Society, the AMA, etc. Follow the money trail! Think of the millions who have died because this information has been withheld.

You ask is this a hoax? No! It true! Is this a Conspiracy Theory? No it is a Conspiracy!

Check it out for yourself, its true.

Cast iron Cookware the Natural Way

Looking for a more natural alternative to Aluminum or  Non Stick cookware?
Try Cast Iron!

   Cast iron cookware is a great way to start cooking healthy. Cast iron is nothing new, in fact it has been around for years. What do you think all those cowboys in the westerns cooked their beans in? One or two pans, whether new ones or old ones is really all you need. The image above is of a very old #8 cast iron chicken fryer. It has 4 inch sides and so it is very versatile.

   One of the drawbacks of iron is that it is heavy, but on the other side of the coin because it is iron, the heat is distributed throughout the pan very evenly. One of the other objections to cast iron is that it doesn't have a non stick surface.  A properly seasoned cast iron pan is indeed non stick, and has the added benefit of being easy to clean!

   So how do you season a cast iron pan?
  • Heat oven to 450 degrees.
  • With a paper towel apply a thin layer of oil to the pan. Use an oil that has a smoke point above 450 degrees (corn oil 457, canola oil 467, safflower 509, extra light olive oil 468). This will insure that when you bake your pan the house won't fill with smoke and you set off your smoke alarms. 
  • The thin layer of oil is so thin that you will barely see it. 
  • Place the pan in the oven and bake for about 30 minutes, then shut off the oven  and let the cast iron cool down naturally.
  • You would be wise to repeat this procedure 3 or 4 times when you first season the pan. You will see a sheen on the pan ( as in the above image ) when the pan is properly seasoned.
  • Any time in the future you can season the pan again if it becomes necessary.

   Once conditioned the pan is ready to use. A quick word on new pans. Some will say they have been preseasoned. I would wash them in soapy water to get the protective coating off them (which is placed over the seasoning) and then season them as described above anyway.

   Next up is using the pan. How do you know if the pan or griddle is  the proper temperature to use. Drop a few drops of water on the pan surface.
  • If the water just stays there and sizzles away, the pan is not hot enough.
  • If the water vaporizes almost instantly, the pan is to hot.
  • If the water beads up and dances around on the surface,  the pan is the perfect temperature.
   You will find that cast iron is very enjoyable to cook with and the food will taste great. Now on to the clean up.

  • Rinse the pan out with light soapy water.
  • Never place cold water in a hot pan, this could potentially warp or crack it.
  • Do Not use a strong abbrasive or heavy soap on the surface. If something is stuck, add a little water and let it set awhile, then try again.
  • Wipe out the pan and put it away.
   It is truly that easy!

   When starting out with cast iron  a 10 inch fry pan or better yet an #8 chicken fryer will get you by quite nicely. Logde and also Cooks cast iron cookware are both preseasoned naturally. If it does't say cast iron, it isn't. If it says non stick surface  it is not cast iron, or it has an artificially impregnated non stick surface. Remember cast iron is heavy.

   Any person that has grandparents that grew up on a farm in the old days could simply ask them about cast iron cookware.

   For more information on cast iron cooking, this website should be of help:

Maintaining what your body needs when sick, the Natural Way

   Flu season seems to be in full swing, so I thought I would share with you some "get you through"  food for when you are sick. One of the most important things we should be doing when we are sick, is to keep our blood sugar levels and salt levels up. This helps fight the bug. But how, when we feel so rotten?

   Here is an old way that has worked for our family for years. In fact it has been handed down through several generations. Eat several saltine crackers (about 3 or 4) every hour or so. This will keep some food  in your stomach which is easy to digest, and give you the salt that your body needs. If you can find crackers with sea salt, all the better. Then to maintain blood sugar levels take about 4 - 6 ounces of  FLAT ( no carbonation )  Seven Up or Sprite per hour. This can be alternated with the same amount of water per hour. Now, it is important that you use flat clear soda. In other words no Coke, Pepsi, etc. Also the soda should have sugar in it, no diet sodas.

   Normally I am not an advocate of sodas, but in this case clear flat sodas are very helpful. If you have sugar issues such as diabetes, do not use pop, just keep the water flowing. 

   As crazy as it sounds this does work and it will help get you through stomach bugs like Flu.  So keep some saltines and a 2 liter bottle of Seven Up in the house, along with your cans of chicken noodle soup.

   Lot's of rest and water is also very helpful!

Sick and need to Throw Up, but can't. Here's help, the Natural Way

   I was talking with a friend several weeks ago, and he had told me that he had been sick and felt like throwing up but couldn't. Can you relate? If so this post is for you. You could always try the two fingers method, but your natural response is to pull your fingers out before it works and you walk away unrelieved.

   Here's a method my mother used for us kids when we where young, and I am still using it today. She said that she had learned it from her mother on the farm. My mother was also a RN, so she would not have used this method if it would do harm to us.

   Mix 1/2 tsp of Baking Soda (not baking powder) with about 1/4 C of warm water. Mix it well and drink it. Now I have to warn you, one of two things will happen, so be ready! You will either puke in the next minute or so or it will neutralize the acid in your stomach and you will feel better. It may also cause you to burp. It will work, so be prepared!

  This may seem to some of you a strange post, but the fact is that when you are sick and feel like puking its awful when you can't. The fact is that you generally feel better afterwards. Throwing up is one of the ways your body has of ridding itself of toxins. Usually you sleep pretty good for a while also. Remember to drink enough clear fluids(H2O) to replenish fluid loss by puking. One glass every several hours is good.

   So next time you are sick and feel like puking, but can't, give this method a try instead of the two fingers method! You will be glad you did.

Treating Diaper Rash and Rashes the Natural Way

    Our daughter just had a little girl last summer and she was concerned how to treat and get rid of diaper rash. Well here it is for everyone who has babies and grand babies. You take some Rosemary and Thyme out of the kitchen spice rack and get started.  Make a tea out of them. Put 1 tsp of Thyme and 1/2 tsp of Rosemary in a mug. Then fill the mug with boiling  water  (preferably purified) and let it steep until water is cold. Filter out the tea leave and place in a container with a lid (Glass would be best), so you can store it in the fridge. It should last you several weeks. Its that easy and cheap to make. After you change the little one and clean them up, dab the tea liberally on with a cotton ball, let it air dry and diaper as usual. The rash will be gone the next day.

   Diaper rash is, believe it or not caused by a virus, the same virus that causes cold sores. So this mixture would probably work on cold sores as well. I have had friends that have tried it when they have broken out in a rash and they have told me it works great.

    Thyme and Rosemary both have very powerful antiviral and antibacterial properties in them. The wonderful thing is that you can treat the rash naturally and without chemicals, or store bought remedies, and the added bonus is that it is inexpensive.

  My hope is that you will try it and bless someone else with the  information by passing it on!
