If you have an ant problem and you do not want to spend money on Orkin or buy environmentally hazardous products, then may I suggest using Aspartame and the ants will surely die. If you are not familiar with Aspartame then try: NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful or Crystal Light. These artificial sweeteners will surely kill the ants and maybe even you. The body tries to protect you from these Excitotoxins by storing them away in fat cells, which becomes a very stubborn fat to remove from your body. You can exercise and diet to excess but it is virtually impossible to lose these fats that store poisons.

 

An added insult of these artificial sweeteners is that they also accelerate weight gain. When an artificial sweetener is taken into the body, the body perceives the sweetness and releases insulin to utilize the recently acquired energy source. But no glucose is available, so the body sends out signals to consume carbohydrates and alleviate the jitters that accompany elevated insulin levels. These extra calories promote weight gain.

It is so sad to see people struggling with obesity, carrying around their 32 oz. “diet soda” truly believing that it will help them with their weight. These chemical sweeteners do not kill you right away but they cause various diseases and have also recently provoked suicide. Parkinson’s disease is one of many diseases triggered by these insidious chemicals The following is an interesting correlating example from the book “Take Control of Your Health and Escape the Sickness Industry” by Elaine Hollingsworth.

Inside Hollywood, there has been much speculation about the cause of the Parkinson’s Disease suffered by actor Michael J Fox, but the star’s addiction to Diet Pepsi (which contains aspartame) is no secret. One cast member who worked with Fox said he drank at least 12 cans a day. I have no way of knowing if that is true, since I have not spoken with him. I do know, however, from my own Hollywood days, that whenever a celebrity endorses a product, he or she is provided with an unlimited supply, and if there is a movie or TV show involved, cases are sent each week. Given Michael’s long-standing commercial endorsement of Diet Pepsi, it’s hardly surprising that not only is he himself now a victim of the neurological disease, but that several crew members who worked with him have also been reported as suffering the same terrible affliction. PepsiCo, Monsanto and their partners-in-crime have a lot to answer for.

August 25th, 2014Red Clover

Jo Francks MH

 

Red clover is an herb that is given to us as a blessing for many different ailments. It has been used for centuries and is well known as a treatment and prevention for cancer. It is also useful as a tonic for nerves and as a sedative for nervous exhaustion. It has been mentioned as a treatment for bronchial troubles and whooping cough. It is healing to wounds and can be made into an ointment for the treatment of wounds and skin problems like psoriasis and eczema.

Modern research has found that red clover blossoms contain isoflavones, plant based chemicals that produce estrogen-like effects in the body. Isoflavones have shown potential in the treatment of a number of conditions associated with menopause, such as hot flashes, cardiovascular health, and osteoporosis.

Dr. Christopher’s Blood Stream formula is based around red clover blossoms having 6 parts of the herb. Some women have found that taking the Blood Stream formula for other conditions has reduced their frequency of hot flashes. The Blood Stream formula is used along with the Lower Bowel, Kidney, and Liver Gallbladder formulas as an extended herbal cleanse. Start the herbal cleanse by taking 2 capsules of the Lower Bowel formula 3 times a day and 2 capsules of the kidney formula twice a day. These two formulas are taken for two weeks before adding the Liver Gallbladder formula, 2 capsules 3 times a day or a dropper-full of the extract 3 times a day. Stay on these 3 formulas for another week and then add the Bloodstream formula, 2 capsules 3 times a day. It is recommended that these formulas be taken for six weeks and up to six months always resting from the formulas on the seventh day.

 

Red Clover has a direct action in improving the nutrition of the brain. It is especially helpful when there is general mental failure, with loss of memory of words, or when there is confusion of ideas of functional causes. It is also useful when there is weakness of the lower extremities, or of the feet from deficient capillary circulation.

 

This is an herb that can be gathered when the blossoms are in full bloom and is safe to use for many ailments.
