Neem Tree (Natural Cures for Cancer) God’s Way

 

Man’s Ways or God’s Ways? That Is the Question

Do you take what mainstream media tells you about the conventional treatment of cancer without question? Do you consider those who promote natural cures to be quacks?   STOP IT!

Natural, God-given cures are saving lives. Have you ever heard of a neem tree? Probably not.

Yet, this is just one of the many natural methods by which people are being cured from diseases including cancer. Take the truth from an expert research documentary at the following website:                                                       thetruthaboutcancer.com/neem-tree-miracle/  (posted on 5/7/16) and read their recent article about this amazing tree with powerful health benefits.

Don’t take my word for it. Research natural cures as if it were entirely up to you to find one today. Don’t just follow the crowd. It’s possible that you, or your family members, don’t have to suffer through chemotherapy. Think for yourself and weigh the evidence from both sides. ASK GOD to reveal the truth to you.

How to Destress from Negative Thoughts Today

CC BY-ND by al.star

A negative attitude makes me sick.  And it can do the same for you. So, if sickness and disease are your goal, and negative thoughts are your lifestyle, you’re set.

 

But if you’d like to know how to get or stay well, and how to be more positive, keep reading.

 

Why Try to Be More Positive

Have you heard about the two rival shoe companies each of whom sent representatives to Africa to check out the market in the virgin bush country?

One salesman immediately sent word home to his superiors, “Returning home on the next boat, no one wears shoes in the African bush”.

The other salesmen explored the same area and sent this cable, “Quick, send millions of shoes in every size, style, and color. These natives have no shoes”.

Attitude truly is everything.

Negative thoughts produce chemicals, like cortisol, the stress hormone, that can shut down immune response which is our first line of defense against disease and infection.

Per a documentary on Godsaidmansaid.com, scientist investigating people with chronic stress discovered their bodies cannot produce enough lymphocytes (white blood cells). When you look at the ugly side of things you begin worry releasing not only cortisol but other harmful chemicals. It’s not healthy.

That’s your # 1 Why. Your reason for turning those thoughts to positive thinking. I’m going to share them with you some information I learned about tapping.

You’ll learn it will take determination to fight the negativity around you in this world. This will help. It has helped me already.

 

We’ll use the K.I.S.S method.

Keep it short and simple. Why complicate it.

Our bodies do produce some needed cortisol but we want to keep the levels low for our health and longevity.

I have a trigger to help me recognize when I’m getting into stinkin’ thinkin’ mode. I clench my teeth. So, I’m trying to protect the few I haven’t already ground to powder that surgeons had to dig out of my skull (see more about the jaw muscle, masseter, here). Do you notice yourself getting into negative space? Do some people give off vibes that disturb you? Awareness is important.

Do some people leave you feeling drained or exhausted, with a knot in your stomach? Identify how you feel and try taking 3 deep breaths.

  1. What’s stressing you? Even though some people impact you with negative energy, you can combat the drained or exhausted feeling they leave you with. Admit you are feeling their stress in your own body. That you’re directing your thoughts downward into negativity.
  2. Then Tap.

Tap the four fingers on one hand on the fleshy karote chop side of your other hand.

As you tap say out loud, “Even though I feel I have no choice but to be in this person’s presence on occasion, and they have a way of getting to me, I just can’t let it go”.

By admitting your feelings you can begin to deal with them. If this isn’t how you feel when this person walks away, then replace these words with your own admission.

As you tap the side of your hand, repeat out loud:

“I feel stuck, I’m so tired of interacting with this person, yet I feel I have no choice.

Now tap the bone of your eye brow close to the middle of your forehead, above the nose.

Part of me takes on their negative energy.

Now tap the sides of your eye the bone near your temples. And repeat:

Part of me takes on their stress, because I feel I should make it better”.

I

  • Tap the bone under your eye and repeat:

But I can’t take on this heavy weight, and it’s not helping them,

  • Tap under the nose and repeat:

“it’s just weighing me down”.

  • Tap under the lower lip in the crease between lip and chin:

“I don’t want to feel their tension, I want to stay calm when I am in their presence”.

  • Tap the collar bone and say:

“I can show compassion without taking on the stress”.

  • Tap the top of your head:

“I can love others without taking on their burdens”.

Then turn your thinking to healing,

 

  • Tapping the eyebrow point

“I can look closer and discover what is really bothering me.

  • Tap the outer eye:

I am in control of my own thoughts and I am not responsible for anyone else’s thoughts.

  • Below the eye:

I am graceful and strong. I expand my own energy by choosing how I want to feel.

  • Under the nose:

I choose to feel centered. I choose to feel grounded.

  • Under the lip:

“I choose to feel calm. I am always working on my emotional fitness”.

  • Tapping the collar bone:

“Every time I interact with this person, I am grounded. I know where my energy ends

and where their energy begins. And I am only responsible for my energy”.

Because we need to deal with stress as soon as possible to be healthy, and get those chemicals back in balance in our blood cells, it’s important to do some destressing right away. If you are in a public place you can at least tap on some of the areas, like the collar bone or under the lip near the chin and silently talk yourself back to a place of strength and assurance. I use prayer to help me. I talk to God and ask for His guidance.

Just try not to carry it around as we all know it’s going to hit the fan at some point.

Usually, we take stress out in one of two ways.

We stuff it, or we take it out on someone whether the dog or the people you love the most. Deal with it right away.

Emotional health is often what keeps us from eating properly. I must admit that from my own experience.

Cortisol’s Connection to Cancer (Is There One?)

 

LOL (Laughing out loud) DO IT, LAUGH! It’s HEALTHY.

 

Cortisol is the fight or flight hormone or stress hormone.  But too much of it can dampen immune response and shut down the very process that attacks life-threatening microbes or keeps malignant cells from proliferating into an invasive tumor. *

 

LOL

Laughter increases production of white blood cells which fight disease. It increases the number and activity of natural killer cells. To simplify, the immune system is positively benefited by laughter.

 

Laugh! A merry heart does good like medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones. High levels of cortisol can keep you from losing weight and cause cancer or other serious disease. Why? We’ll talk only about two reasons today but look for more in future blogs.

 

#1 God Wants You Happy, So He Planned It

 

“That your days and the days of your children may be many in the land that the Lord swore to give your forefathers, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth” (Deuteronomy 11:21, NIV).

 

“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again, rejoice” (Philippians 4:4, NIV).   

 

There are at least 100 places in the Bible that encourage us to live a happy and prosperous life.

 

Once you’ve become a child of God by asking for forgiveness and accepting His death on the cross as payment for your sins, you have begun a walk with Him, a personal relationship that breaks the power of evil, and gives God authority in your life. He is the ruler. Obviously, there are still temptations but now you have somewhere to go for help. He’s sent the Holy Spirit for assistance. The more you have the mind of Christ, the weaker the influence of evil. As I always say,

 

VICTORY BREEDS VICTORY.

 

#2 God Wants You Healthy (and Planned for It)

 

The bones carry the marrow, which makes up our blood and immune system. White blood cells fight infection.

 

Psychoneuroimmunology or neuroimmunomodulation studies have shown that happy, positive, merry thoughts have a direct positive effect on the production of red blood cells. It’s know that stress , depression, anger and other negative emotions produce harmful chemicals that weaken the body.

In fact, scientiss have studied patients under chronic stress and discovered their bodies can’t produce enough whte blodd cells,–called lymphocytes–to fight off invaders.

Dr. Berk, a researcher at Loma Linda University School of Medicine’s Dept of Clinical Immunology, has shown that laughter lowers serum cortisol levels.*

 

So, do something today to make you laugh. It can cure your body and prevent disease. Laugh a belly rolling laugh. Watch Funniest Home Videos or a comedy. Watch kids or cat videos on YouTube.com They do the silliest, and cutest things. Keep laughing!

Hearts Speak of Love on Valentines

Hearts Speak of Love on Valentines

How’s your heart?  

Some will celebrate Valentine’s Day with their mother, because she’s their special valentine. Some with their significant other, their special daughter. My granddaughter will go out to lunch with her daddy today. He also will take his wife out for Valentine’s Day.

Not everyone has a Valentine with whom they will spend some extra time.

It can still be a fun day, or you can treat today as any other day of the year. But the big important thing, is to stay away from toxic emotions.

FOR YOUR HEART’S SAKE

Take care of YOUR heart, by keeping it clear of deadly emotions, toxic memories that hurt. Enjoy life. You may have suffered but you are not alone. Emotions affect heart health.

No one gets through this life without some suffering. Self-pity is one of the most destructive emotions you can practice. I say practice, because you and I choose how we feel. We can teach our brains to think positively. Here’s a quick tip from Jordan Ruben*

whenever you face a circumstance,

such as your health,

that causes you to worry, repeat the following:

‘Lord, I trust You. I cast my cares upon You, and

I believe that you’re going to take care of [insert

your current situation] and make my health and

my body strong.” Confess that throughtout the

day whenever you think about your health condition

that casuses you to worry. 

Of course you can do the same with your feelings of loneliness, heartache, physical pain or whatever. Just write out your own belief paragraph about your situation patterned after the above quote and repeat it daily.

Then memorize this verse.

“Rejoice in the Lord and again I say rejoice” (Philippians 4:4).

Have a blessed day.

Share with us in the comments on the contact page, how this effects your day, your week, your life.

*Jordan Rubin is the author of the New York Times bestseller The Maker’s Diet and the Great Physicians’s Rx for Health and Wellness.

Daniel Training for the King’s Service (Healthy Habits Enforced)

 

Benefits of Strict Training

image courtesy of Top Fitness Strategies.com

I Corinthians 9:19-27

 

Training for what?

God was at work in the lives of the captives long before the Babylonian Captivity.”  Daniel and his friends grew up under Levitical law, which means their diets were regulated by strict rules. Not only the food choices but how they were prepared.

This diet must have been good for the brain, the body and skin. These young men were chosen for 3 reasons:

  • From families of royalty (king David’s line) or nobility.
  • Good looks (Daniel 1:4
  • No physical defects
  • Skillful in wisdom (showing aptitude for learning)
  • Well informed (gift in knowledge)

 

They were training to be fit to serve the king. The king’s food was part of the training for serving him. (But their former life taught them better.)

What About You?

You and I have a greater King to serve, don’t we? Are we fit?

We cannot serve the Lord to the fullest if our bodies are run down and tired and not functioning as God designed them to function. Our brains need to be alert and in tune with God’s word. As Christ-followers we need to realize God has physical laws to practice. It’s a spiritual matter that affects the physical just as the Levitical law was for the good of physical well-being as well as spiritual. Just because we understand our spiritual position in Christ, does not mean we can break His physical laws of health and not suffer the consequences.

*Read about the Babylonian Captivity in the Old Testament Books of Esther and Daniel

Verse to Remember: “Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever” (I Corinthians 9:25).

Prayer: Fit me for your service, Lord. Teach me Your ways.

Health Quote: “Avoid anything that hurts the brain, like sugar.” Daniel Amen, M.D.

Cancer Prevention and Reversal Quick Tip (True Story)

If you’re in a hurry, scroll down for free coaching course .

 

 

Hey, I just want to take a few minutes to tell you a story. And share a meme I did for myself of a lesson I keep learning again and again on the road to a disciplined life.

The past weekend I was feeling pretty spent. I had made a commitment

to myself not to eat any grains or sugar. All week I stuck to it. But I always

seem to let my hair down on weekends. A change of pace. That whole easy going attitude kind of spelled lack of discipline in my feeble mind.

I ate grains and I’m not sure even though I ate no sugar we know grains turn to sugar in our system. I can’t eat wheat so they were gluten free grains.

I’ve been under a lot of pressure with a deadline for a project due this week, so, I got up early Monday morning to dig in and learn more techy crap. I was amazed at noon when all I did was go from putting out one fire after another. I hadn’t even started my work day yet. No kidding! Noon.

THE PROBLEM?

Lack of focus. Under the gun for a deadline for Valentine’s Day book and yet I couldn’t get started. Then the dawn came. It always happens when I eat grains, even gluten free grains. My clarity is gone. When will I learn? How about you. Test it out. Take notes. Get to know your body.

THE SOLUTION?

Total commitment is the answer. It has to be a top priority or you (and I) will never get healthy. That’s what I told myself and you might want to do the same.

Some people discover the necessity after they’ve been diagnosed with a serious disease. You know the one I’m talking about.

Today is Wednesday, our day to focus on cancer prevention and reversal. I’ll show you another short story. It’s about a cancer survivor who is offering a free coaching course on how to get through the trial of hearing that diagnosis and how to naturally heal your body. He’s a believer and survivor. Watch this very short video and hear his offer for free coaching online.

7 Simple Stretches to Start Your Day (Part 2)

Part 2 of 7 Simple Stretches to Start Your Day will round off full body stretches. I’ll include one video which is available through YouTube.com.

Improving flexibility and range of motion becomes more important as you grow older. Stretching is a fundamental method of improving both. Keeping those muscles flexible is the start of a beneficial exercise program.

The two fundamentals, flexibility and exercise, if done consistently bring these additional benefits:

  • Improve circulation
  • Improve range of motion
  • Improve posture
  • Decrease joint stiffness
  • Decrease muscle tension
  • Improve performance (there is limited evidence to support this)
  • Improve your ability to relax
  • Allow time for mental training, such as visualization

I personally have experienced much better sleep habits when consistently exercising.

Remember in Part I of 7 Simple Stretches … we talked about the importance of warming up the muscles before stretching. A 10 minute walk was suggested.

Caution: 

In any stretch, be cautious of overstretching. You should only feel slight tension during the stretch, not pain. Don’t jerk the muscles but slowly and gently pull the muscles into place.

The above list was taken from https://www.verywell.com article on How to Stretch the Piriformis. By Elizabeth Quinn Updated October 29, 2015

#4 of 7 Simple Stretches to Start Your Day

The Piriformis Stretch

This is a very basic stretch for the piriformis muscle, glutes and hips. The piriformis muscle is buried beneath the butt(gluteal) musclses.  It’s important to keep it in place as it can get pushed around and is very close to the siatic nerve. UGH! That can be painful all the way to the toes. Literally.

Believe me, I can attest to that. I never knew what my problem was until one of our sons became a Physical Therapist’s assistent. I learned that the piriformis can compress the sciatic nerve. My son had me lie on the floor, face down, and he pressed on my gluteal muscle until the pressure put the piriformis in place. It was painful while he was working on it but the pain was gone for months. But you can do the same thing by sitting on a tennis balls. Of course, you have to know what you’re doing. My son, Nathan, is trained and experienced expert at physical therapy. So I want you to have professional advice from a fitness trainer to put your piriformis back in place. I’ve embedded a video here

#5 of 7 Simple Stretches to Start Your Day 

Hamstring Stretch

We all know that older people like to rehearse their pain and illness. I have talked to lots of people who complain of lower back pain. I’m not saying elderly, because I can name a few who are in their 50’s. They work at physical jobs, requiring bending.

Fitness trainers and  physiologists have been testing for tightness in the lower back and hamstrings with this test to assess baseline flexibility. This will help to determine what exercise program is recommended for an individual. The test can be repeated after several weeks to determine if flexibility has increased. Tightness in the lower back is often related to muscle pain and stiffness and this test can ease the problem. Keeping these muscles subtle can reduce future pain and injury, as well.

Because tightness in the low back and hamstrings is often related to muscle pain and stiffness, this test may help determine a person’s risk for future pain and injury. It has been used by exercise physiologists and fitness trainers for decades to assess baseline flexibility before starting an exercise program and is repeated after several weeks to determine progress.

Here it is:

key-stretch-04-sitting-hamstring-stretch

 

How to Do the Seated Hamstring Stretch

The hamstrings need to be strong and loose to endure the demands of running and kicking. This stretch can help maintain length in the hamstrings.

  • Sit on the floor with your legs stretched out in front of you with knees straight.
  • In a slow, steady movement, lean forward at the hips, keep you knees straight and slide your hands up your legs to your feet.
  • Extend as far as you can, and curl your feet toward you to increase the stretch.
  • Hold the stretch for 20-30 seconds, release and repeat two to three times.

Source: These instructions are copied exactly from another article by Elizabeth Quinn on VeryWell.com

This is 5 stretches in Part 2 so I guess there’s going to be a part 3, huh?

Today is Friday, plan some time on Saturday and Sunday to get started if you haven’t already. Do the five stretches we’ve covered in the past two blogs. Maybe tomorrow, there will be 2 more to add to your repertoire.

Drum roll, Why not start today?

7 Stretches to Start Each Day (Starting Now)

A popular time for exercise is early morning.

 

But how soon after rising should you exercise?  Are there any preparatory actions you should take first?

What 3 times per week do you exercise? Studies show if you schedule a specific time, mark it on the calendar or write it somewhere, you are much more apt to keep that date. 

That’s why I am offering a FREE gift FUN FITNESS journal here bottom of this page

So what preliminary activites come first, before exercising. You might answer, stretches if you first read the title of this blog. You might stretch to prepare your muscle for exercise, especially if you’re a runner. But before stretches it’s important to warm up. Enhance the output of your muscles by taking a 10 or 15-minute walk before stretching or exercising. Get the blood circulating. Your muscles will experience overall better recovery.

Stretches are next and very important as well. Exercise can shorten the muscles decreasing mobility over time. Stretching keeps the muscles flexible, so they, along with the joints are at their fullest range of motion.

We spend lots of time bending forward, or leaning on counters slightly bending forward, stretching our necks forward to see the computer screen while trying to remain in our chair. This first stretch will help us extend the opposite direction to put things back in place.

 

#1 Simple Stretch to Start Your Day

Lie on the floor face down, lift your right arm and extend while lifting your left leg into a fully extended position. You should look a bit like superman flying but with alternate arms out in front of you. Then do the opposite. Do each move twenty times. Jordan Rubin calls this the Alternate quad Superman, you look like you’re flying  through the air. That picture brings a smile to my face, how about you? Remember, this is the Hideous Health Habits blog. That’s hideous! Laughter is healthy medicine.

My therapeutic massage therapist taught me this stretch because my piriformis slips out of wack every once in a while. Now check the box in you Fun Fitness Journal and go on to #2 stretch.

 

#2 Simple Stretch to Start Your Day

Wall push-ups. Just kidding with this picture. I thought it was hideously funny when I typed in Wall push-ups and Canva Kala suppied this.

CC BY-NC by MastaBaba

Find a corner wall and place hands on each side wall just outside

the range of your shoulders, toes about one foot from the corner of the wall. Lean

you face into the corner forcing you elbows back like doing a push-up on the

floor. Just a slight stretch to wake up those muscles. (wouldn’t a picture of this be great, I’ll keep

searching for one.

#3 Simple Stretch to Start Your Day

CC BY by bwanderd

This stretch is for the quadriceps which pretty much cover the front and side of the thighs. It’s an alternating quad stretch. Stand with one hand on a chair for if you wish. Pull your right leg behind you with the left hand while keeping tummy muscles pulled in and knee pointing to floor as much as possible. This strap method is especially good for those who can’t or aren’t ready to stretch too far.

Repeat on opposite leg. Again, don’t stretch it if you’re in pain, be gentle and little by little (not all in one day you’ll stretch those muscles. Soon you’ll be able to perform this up against the wall and get your hip to touch the wall. Aim toward that.  AGAIN, if you have chronic knee pain don’t increase the pain.

 

The next 4 stretches will be posted on Friday, February 1, 2017. Start each day with these 3 stretches and be sure to warm up your muscles and joints first with a short walk. Get that blood circulating.

Breath in some fresh air for 20 minutes a day. Open the doors and windows and let some fresh air circulate once a day. Let the sun or rain touch your face.

3 Lessons Learned From Fighting for Freedom (Part 4 of 4 Part Series)

I. Striving for Freedom (by the way the free gift is posted on our home page, scroll down to the bottom) 

I know you long for freedom in some area of your life, and  I’m willing to help you achieve that.

I know it’s possible. Of course, I don’t know everything, but I have a very close friend Who does. The more time I spend with Him, the more I see His ways are perfect.

I continue to strive to be a winner, conquering one step at a time. If we are on this earth we’ll be struggling for freedom.  For victory. The struggle is daily.

II Striving in Whose Power?

We’ve had 3 lessons in the last few weeks about being bound by a ruler who didn’t want the same things his slaves did. The Hebrew people wanted to go worship their God. Pharaoh had watchment over them. Forced labor, building him cities, making bricks. He was cruel and wanted to take the place of God. Their wait for freedom was long but God delivered did deliver them.  You can learn a fourth lesson from that delivery and enslavement.

                       The dark moments in our life will last

                       only so long as it is necessary for God

                       to accomplish His purpose in us.

As Moses, their rescuer, submitted to God in spite of his fears of speaking to Pharaoh, the King, and Pharaoh’s reputation for intolerance, and fear of the people’s reaction to him being their leader, deliverance came. Suffering can open our eyes to our need for help from a supernatural being.

Still waiting to see what this has to do with health? Some of you already know that the closer we are to God, the more we listen to His voice, read His word, the more we want to please Him. Our health is important to God.

Now this isn’t going to be a sermon, but I want to tell you what I’ve experienced in my life.

I have been reading about Elisha this week, and am still amazed at how he knew things that no human being can know. He saw forces that were stronger that the forces which were coming to harm him, but his servant couldn’t see them.

Have you even been talking to someone about the Lord and just the verse they needed to hear came to your mind and you wondered:

Wow! I haven’t thought of that verse, it wasn’t on my mind, but just when I needed it suddenly and surprisingly I was quoting it. (If you’re memory is like mine, you’d be double surprised. )

When you read how Elisha knew God’s ways and thoughts, you’ll wish you could be closer to God and hear His voice, not audibly, but be more in tune to what He wants of you. Do you think that’s possible?

Read I Corinthians 2:9-16 then go to my contact page, (see contact page in the menu on the home page) and tell me what you think. Is it possible for a Christ-follower to think like God? How does God reveal things to us? We might not see a burning bush like Moses did, but Moses had only the law. He didn’t have the Bible you and I have.

Would you like to know more about how you can be a winner, be victorious over the things that are holding you back from being healthy?

I believe you do want freedom from those heavy burdens that weigh you down and keep you from feeling your best. That’s why I have been formulating a coaching course which will be an online support group.

Monday was Martin Luther King’s birthday, so I tied in our series on Freedom Fighting. But as we saw this little gal question what any of this freedom fighting has to do with health habits.

Excuse me, but how does this relate to health and fitness?

I’m hoping to wrap up this series and this weekend and have your gift ready to download. I’ve hired some help and we expect the finished product soon. Hang tight. There’s a lesson to be learned here as well.

And the last message of this series will tie everything together in its conclusion.

Quick Tip of the Day

 

Do you stay in bed when pain hits? Think about how hospitals get you out of bed soon after you have surgery. It’s beneficial to get your blood circulating encouraging healing.

If you feel the answer to alleviating pain is staying still, think again. Even if you start with some breathing techniques to pump more oxygen into the blood, you will relieve the stress that may be keeping that cycle going.

The cycle of stressing over why you are in pain, which causes more pain because of the stress of worrying about why you are in pain. Get up, do the deep breathing exercises.

 

Source for this info: The 7-Day Back Pain Cure by Jesse Cannone I recommend his book and one that he mentions which I haven’t read is: The Touch of Healing by Alice Burmeister in which she offers thousands of different breathing techniques.
