BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTOS

before after

The photos of this young man from India were taken 8 weeks apart. At the time of the first picture, he had liver cancer and a friend of mine from Australia named Peace Delangelo told him about baking soda and lemons as something he might use to fight the cancer as he had no money for conventional medicine.

He went on a diet of fresh fruits and vegetables. He also began taking a tsp. of baking soda in a glass of water twice daily and drinking the juice of a freshly squeezed lemon in a glass of water 4 times a day.

After about ten days he doubled his intake of lemons by squeezing 2 fresh lemons into a glass of water 4 times a day. In 8 short weeks he was a picture of good health as you can see from the second photograph and was declared cancer-free by a doctor. This is just a sample of what has been purposely hidden from you by those who want your money.

At any time you can click on links to the left to access my health research.

Our Current World

Chris Hedges in a now famous quote said, "We now live in a nation where doctors destroy health, lawyers and judges destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the press destroys information, religion destroys morals, and banks destroy the economy."

Greed has long since entered into much of the world of drugs and medicine and more than ever before, those who are sick need to be aware and also beware!

Many doctors are honest and treat you the best they can, but doctors can do no better than what they have been taught and since all medical schools are owned and operated by Big Pharma, doctors are taught by and large to be legal drug pushers.

Our biggest mistake sometimes is thinking that people are looking out for our best interest ahead of their own bank account. Unfortunately, that is less true today than perhaps any other time in history, so now is the time to get educated so that you can start looking out for yourself.

The following video is a bit of a wakeup call as to how much pressure Big Pharma can and will put upon doctors who go against what they are told to do and simply tell the truth. You can also right click the video if you wish to download it. Note: Youtube is now banning vidoes such as this, which speaks volumes to those who are starting to wake up.



I share this information because most doctors and research scientists don't even know what is going on behind the scenes. Hopefully, this will help the reader to realize that we can no longer blindly trust anyone when it comes to our health. At least do your own research before making health decisions that cannot be reversed, which includes taking vaccines. There are many alternatives to almost every health concern and having a strong immune system is how God intended for you to prevent infections.

Disclaimer: I make no medical claims or promises of cures. I am merely a reporter and I stand on my First and Ninth Amendment Rights to report in "good faith" things which to me are true and correct. The following information is drawn from hundreds and sometimes thousands of years of usage and observation of the effect of natural substances upon human health as well as a mountain of clinical research and modern scientific studies.

This is possibly the single most comprehensive guide available to help you understand the real causes of disease and premature aging, and how to provide the proper environment, biological terrain and nutrients for your cells, which in turn may greatly improve your health and prolong your life.

Many people who have used this information are now free from disease. and thank God, I am one of those persons.

Background

I was attending law school when I took an elective class in Nutrition. Having grown up with numerous health challenges, I was fascinated to learn that the answers to my problems may be dietary. I became so involved with studying health related books and reports that my other classes suffered and it became obvious that I needed to change my major.

During my studies, I came across a quote by the great Nobel Laureate, Linus Pauling who said, “Every sickness and every disease can be traced to a mineral deficiency.” This made perfect sense because growing up on a farm, animals got sick when they were lacking minerals.

I began compiling information from my research, which I later began to publish in free reports and eventually started compiling this book which the reader can use to quickly and easily find help for many, if not all of their own health concerns.

In the mid 80's, I owned a health food store and it was my job to find products that were pure, concentrated and free from harmful ingredients. Sadly, I watched as many good products were changed or watered down to increase profits and because most people lack knowledge as to what ingredients may be helpful or harmful, I have personally formulated some products and researched others that you will learn about in this book and which I believe to be of superior quality, more concentrated and frequently less expensive than similar products of inferior quality and value.

You will also find hundreds of home remedies, many of which are inexpensive and have stood the test of time. Again, I make no claims and you the reader can do your own due diligence or seek medical advice before using or trying anything that I report here.

There are those who oppose every good thing, therefore expect to find opposing views on virtually any subject you care to research. My advice to the reader is use more than one source when researching anything. As a witness to how diverse ideas can be, look at how many Christian denominations have sprung up in disagreement over the teachings of one Bible.

Although I subscribe to no religion, I am a Christian Minister and therefore refer to Bible verses from time to time to make certain points. I hope that doesn't offend you, but if it does, simply skip over those parts.

Ephesians 6:12 says, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." This battle is more polarized right now than at any other time in my lifetime and includes the Wyoming Attorney General suing me for approximately $1.500,000 for publishing this book. Hopefully that will not keep you from reading and benefitting from numerous simple practices that may help your health and if you would like to help me in my personal battle, you can do so by going to Help Fight For Freedom And Justice.

Many of things written here are irrefutable. For example, minerals are electrolytes that catalyze every function of the human body. In layman's terms, we might compare electrolytes to light switches. Each switch in your home provides electricity to a particular light. The light switch in your bathroom does not turn on the light in your kitchen. Each switch has its own function.

I like to compare the human electrical system to how your car works. Electricity ignites the fuel that powers your engine. Electricity is the power that runs your car's computer and powers your lights, gauges, windshield wipers, horn, etc. The simple failure of a tiny fuse or other electrical component can prevent your car from running. Restoring your car to full performance may be as simple as replacing an inexpensive fuse and it may be as complex as replacing the motherboard in your car's computer.

Greed can overcome honesty and morality when money is involved. A mechanic can easily tell you that you need to overhaul an engine or replace a transmission when in reality, you only need a small electrical component costing only a few dollars and requiring a few minutes to replace.

The same is true of doctors, a lawyers, mechanics, plumbers or any service professional. They can easily lie as to the complexity of your problem as a way to enrich themselves at your expense. It seldom hurts to get a second opinion, especially if you in any way suspect that the price you are required to pay seems too high. Furthermore, with a little research, you can often find effective solutions to your problems, which you can personally take care of at a fraction of the cost of employing a professional.

People are starting to wake up to this kind of dishonesty, in fact hundreds of doctors have been arrested for treating non-cancer patients with expensive cancer drugs or radiation and for bilking insurance companies for billions of dollars of unnecessary disease care.

Patients have died at the hands of unscrupulous heart surgeons when the patient clearly DID NOT need open heart surgery. These tragedies are result of greed and most frequently happen to people who have the best insurance policies.

There are many things that you can do for yourself prior to needing a doctor and you may be surprised at how much control you can have over your own health.

Every minor sickness and every major disease is in some way related to a lack of one or more minerals in your body. The likelihood that you can discover which mineral or minerals you are lacking is quite probable just by reading this book.

Lack of minerals is not the only factor that causes disease, namely dehydration, lack of oxygen, too much inorganic iron, fluoride, chlorine, heavy metals and other toxic chemicals. I will expound more upon these things later.

All factors which lead to disease can be minimized to a great degree, which can lend to vibrant health and increased energy for anyone who follows the natural remedies outlined in this book.

Included in these pages are certain products, some of which can easily be obtained from your local grocer or health food store and some of which are specialty items or brand name products.

When it comes to nutrition, you do not need to be a Rocket Scientist to understand that you need to buy fuel when your car runs out. When your body runs low on pure water and minerals, your cells become dehydrated and shrivel up, making it easy for viruses and diseases to attack, which in turn leads to disease and premature death.

Many man-made chemicals lead to disease and we live in a very toxic world compared to just a few generations ago. Thousands of new chemicals are discovered each year and most of them eventually end up in the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat.

Carpets, furniture, painted walls and many other things in our modern homes and offices off gas poisonous fumes. Chemical soaps, detergents, shampoos, toothpaste, etc. are used on a continuous basis and all of these things cause cancer, diabetes and a host of other diseases.

Most of us understand the effect of getting dirt inside of a cut or wound. The wound will fester instead of healing. If not disinfected, further complications may occur that could eventually necessitate surgery or amputation. However, when thoroughly disinfected, a wound will normally heal or cure itself as long as the necessary building blocks of nutrition are available. All of the bodily systems and organs respond similarly when they become infected with toxins of any kind.

Something that is now epidemic is adult onset (type-2) diabetes. What few people realize is, if the pancreas gets overloaded with toxins, it has to give all of its energy to eliminating the toxins, which interferes with its ability to produce insulin. Frequently, when toxins are removed from the pancreas, it will start producing insulin again and the symptom called diabetes will simply disappear.

Cure is something that only the body can do and God created the human body in such a way that when we get toxins out and then get proper nutrients to repair and replace diseased cells, the body can then return to homeostasis or good health.

In order to correct a problem, we must first understand what caused it. In a majority of cases of diabetes, the underlying cause is an overload of toxins in the pancreas; it's that simple!

All disease has a corresponding toxic condition and those symptoms are given different names. For example, toxins that settle into and around the joints, causes a painful condition we call Arthritis. Toxins deposited in the muscle tissues result in Fibromyalgia. Toxins in the brain gets many different names from Migraines to ADHD to Dementia, depression, anxiety, etc.

Toxins are always acidic and when they get deposited around the nerves, acid begins to dissolve the myelin sheath around the nerves which is not only very painful, but which eventually affects motor functions of the body. We call this condition Multiple Sclerosis.

Toxins coming out through the skin can cause rashes Psoriasis, Eczema, etc. These are also acidic and cause burning and itching of the skin. Get rid of the toxins and symptoms generally go away.

Sometimes an organ is weaker than the surrounding tissues and cannot remove toxins as readily as the stronger surrounding tissues, causing toxins to pool up in the weaker tissue. This poses a major threat to that area of the body and it reacts by building a protective protein or fibrin sheath around the toxins, which we call a tumor.

The cells inside of the tumor often mutate in order to survive, which we call malignant cancer cells. Mutated cells thrive in a toxic environment and because there is an abundant supply of toxins inside of the tumor they grow rapidly.

The tumor builds its own circulatory system and the cancer cells literally gobble up toxins from the dirty blood flowing into the tumor. the tumor is essentially a filtering system for your blood, functioning in much the same way as the oil filter on your car filters and cleans your oil.

A tumor is actually your friend. Your body created it to prolong your life. So, what do most people do to their friend? They have their doctor kill the tumor using Chemo, Radiation or Surgery.

I have read statistics showing that those who don't get traditional medical treatments for cancer live an average five years longer than those who do. Chemical poison is used in chemotherapy to kill cancer cells, but the problem lies in the fact that this poison is not discriminate; at the same time, it kills cancer, it poisons the entire body and it has been said that more people die from the poison than they do from the cancer. Not only that, chemo treatments are very painful, so why do so many people opt for such drastic treatments?

Even getting biopsies are dangerous. The head doctor at the Hippocrates Cancer Clinic said that getting a biopsy is like punching a hole in a bag of rice. A tumor encapsulates cancer cells and keeps them from spreading throughout the body, but once a biopsy is done, the cancer cells are free to enter the blood stream and travel throughout the body and we call such a condition metastasis.

The other problem with diagnosis is the fact that it scares people into believing they are going to die and then they die. Studies have shown that there have been numbers of cases where people were misdiagnosed and didn't actually have cancer, but after the doctor told them they did, their belief system caused them to get cancer.

The first order of business if you are diagnosed with any symptom or disease is to remain calm and turn on the body's ability to detoxify itself. There are many harsh detox programs, but I prefer to work with nature and give the body what it needs to turn on its own God-given ability to detoxify itself. This not only results in a better and more complete detox, but it is not invasive like most products designed for detoxification.

The body cannot be detoxified in a dehydrated condition and I can almost guarantee that if you are not drinking ShopFreeMart Hydration Water that you are dehydrated. See FreeMart Hydration Water

Cancer is not the boogeyman. It is a toxic condition. Your lifestyle and exposure to toxins is what cause the cancer and even if you were to successfully get treated for cancer, without a change of lifestyle, the cancer will return.

For anyone suspected of having cancer, or worse, diagnose as having cancer, I suggest taking a deep breath to clear your head and then start getting educated on what caused your cancer, because that will provide the answer to your cure. There are many ways to get rid of cancer and even the medical profession has discovered many cures for cancer, but each time they do, they are hidden from the public because those in control are motivated by the almighty dollar and a simple cure for cancer would quickly kill a multi-billion-dollar industry.

Many natural alternatives to cancer have also been discovered and some of them became widely known for a short duration, but when they become too successful and too widely known, practitioners were then either raided by the FDA and shut down or said doctors simply mysteriously disappeared or suddenly committed suicide. Other doctors whose lives were threatened fled to Mexico or other parts of the world where they could continue to practice without fear of being killed.

In 1931, doctor Otto Warburg received a Nobel Prize for his studies on cancer cells. Nobel Laureate, Dr. Warburg, was denied entry into the U.S. as a result a boycott by the American Medical Association. This was obviously to prevent him from exposing his inexpensive and simple cure for cancer. One thing that Dr. Warburg is famous for is proving that cancer cannot survive in a liquid having a pH of 7.0 or higher.

One simple method of maintaining an alkaline pH is to keep your cells hydrated. Cells that are completely hydrated tend to maintain a pH of 7.2 to 7.4. The simplest and most cost effective method I know of for hydrating your cells is drinking ShopFreeMart Hydration Water.

One lady who claimed that she had been diagnosed with cancers in virtually every organ of her body except for her heart, plus having Leukemia and bone cancer began drinking 2 gallons of water daily and in only a matter of weeks said that her doctor pronounced her cancer free.

I cannot verify this information since I never met this lady in person and never saw her doctor's reports, but I did speak with her by phone and in my opinion, she appeared to be telling the truth. Moreover, she was not selling anything and had nothing to gain by telling me these things.

I not saying that anyone should drink 2 gallons of water daily. What I am suggesting is that hydration is an important part of any health protocol as dehydration is a major factor in all disease and I recommend ShopFreeMart Hydration Water as the easiest and most cost effective way I know for getting water into your cells and getting your body well hydrated.

It makes good sense that the quicker you get your body hydrated, the quicker you will be able to improve any health condition you may have. Turning to God and nature for answers makes good sense to me. 

You may have heard how English sailors were once called limeys. Early English Sailors frequently came down with a sickness called Scurvy. On a particular voyage to a more tropical shore, a sailor picked a bag full of limes which he carried on board the ship. On the return voyage, everyone got scurvey except for this one sailor. In checking what he was doing differently from the others, it was discovered that was eating limes. When other sailors began doing the same, they recovered and from that point on, new spread and English ship captains began providing limes for their sailors. 

Now we know that it was the vitamin C that prevented the scurvy and thus a deficiency of vitamin C was the cause. Prior to the discovery of limes preventing this disease, scurvy was one of the limiting factors of marine travel, often killing large numbers of the passengers and crews on long-distance voyages. In fact, in those days, scurvy was more deadly than cancer is today.

In reviewing numbers of pictures of people with scurvy and people with cancer, I saw many striking similarities. I came to the conclusion and the belief that cancer and scurvy are either one and the same, or twin sisters so to speak.

Is it possible that cancer is somehow related to scurvy? I have not heard anyone postulate this idea, but my belief is they are either the same or at least closely related. Moreover, fresh lemons and limes kill cancer, the same as they do scurvy.

If you do an Internet search about lemons and cancer, you will no doubt find reports saying that fresh organic juice from lemons or limes kills cancer faster than chemotherapy and does not kill non-cancerous cells like chemotherapy does. Some people have claimed that they cured their cancer using fresh lemon juice. Could lemons be a safe alternative for those who don't want to undergo painful chemotherapy treatment?

So why don't doctors give you lemon juice when diagnosed with cancer? You would no longer need a doctor would you?

Cancer is actually one of the easiest diseases to beat when you understand what causes it. See Chapter on Cancer.

In conjunction with what this young man from India did, here are some other tips that I have garnered from others, which may also prove to be beneficial.

Before implementing any of this information, each individual is responsible for weighing the risks and benefits of this protocol. He or she may want to seek medical advice before and be monitored periodically by a doctor if and when trying any of these measures.

As stated before, this is not medical advice. This information is for educational purposes only and does not convey or warranty, either expressly or implied, any outcomes, promises, or benefits from using this information.

_____________________________________________________


1.  SALT - Natural Salt

Standard table salt is heated to high temperatures in processing, the trace minerals are stripped off and Aluminum is added to keep it from clumping, all of which make this overused substance unfit for human consumption. Processed foods containing this type of salt should be avoided and natural salt should be substituted in its place.

There are three salts that I recommend: Celtic sea salt, Himalayan salt and Real Salt that comes from Redmond Utah. These salts are readily available in most health food stores.

There are cultures that drink 1-2 tsp. of salt in a warm glass of water every morning. They are healthier than those who do not. Salt is Sodium Chloride and Sodium is the water regulating mineral of the body. Anyone who has too much or too little water in the body is most likely deficient in salt.

In fact when people go to the emergency room, they are frequently given an IV, which is nothing more than purified water and salt. More often than not, people recover rather quickly after being rehydrated in this manner.

I once read a story of a man who after having had numerous health challenges and several operations, checked himself into a hospital and paid to be put on an IV until he died. After his death, they performed an autopsy and found that all of his organs had healed completely. The indication was that he could have lived a normal life if he had eaten food as well.

My observation is that the IV is the only cure that modern doctors have in their bag of tricks and if you were to get sick you would likely be better off getting an IV than taking drugs, radiation, chemotherapy, etc.

The problem is, that after giving you an IV most doctors then send you home and recommend a no-salt or low-salt diet, so that you will end up getting dehydrated again and need to come in for another fix of salt water.

Constipation is a result of a dehydrated bowel. When drinking 1-2 tsp. of salt in warm or room temperature water, it has the same specific gravity as blood and therefore is shunted to the bowel instead of the kidneys. This cleanses and hydrates the bowel and is a marvelous addition to a good health protocol. Anyone experiencing difficult stools or any kind of bowel inflammation can benefit from drinking salt water in this manner. If you do not experience an immediate improvement in bowel activity, increase the amount of salt you are taking for a few days until you do.

Note: Many people are severely dehydrated and therefore their bodies are holding onto water. After starting to ingest salt in this manner, some people will balloon up with water as a result and therefore they should take only 1/4 tsp. or less daily in the beginning until their bodies begin to adjust to having salt and extra water in their diets.

ShopFreeMart Hydration Water should also be consumed for hydration purposes. It will hydrate the human system faster than any other substance I have found or used. After a period of time, the bowel should also become more hydrated, making bowel movements easier and more regular.

2.  GOLD CLEANSE

The mineral gold is useful for turning on the functions of the organs of elimination in the body. When taking ShopFreeMart Pure Gold in the manner recommended for a ten day cleanse, the cells will have a heightened ability to open up and release toxins throughout the body.

Remember that getting rid of toxins is the primary goal when addressing any symptom or disease. Everything seems to work better and last longer when it is clean. Have you ever notice that even your car runs better after an oil change?

I recommend adding one-half bottle of ShopFreeMart Pure Gold to a gallon glass jar, together with 6 drops of ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops Concentrate and then finish filling the gallon jar with distilled water. (When using Gold in this manner, it must be mixed with distilled water and nothing else.)

First thing in the morning, drink 8 - 12 oz of the Gold water mixture on an empty stomach. If you must brush your teeth first, do not use toothpaste. Use either ShopFreeMart Shave and Shower gel or just brush with water.

Wait for one half hour before eating or drinking anything.

After finishing the ten day cleanse, return to putting a dropper full of Pure Gold under you tongue 3-7 times per week as Gold also feeds the brain and is believed to repair the codons in your DNA which are constantly under attack by Free Radicals in your body.

3.  SILVER CLEANSE

Almost all disease is going to be accompanied by a condition where there are disease causing micro-organizms or parasites that are hosting on the toxicity in your body. It is like vultures that flock around dead and dying animals.

It has now been discovered that people suffering from Alzheimers have nematodes in their brains. Nematodes are also found in Lyme's patients and perhaps in MS patients.

Candida is also a problem in most people and that is due in great part to the fact that the consumption of sugars of all kinds has gone through the roof. Candida thrives wherever there is sugar and we know now that cancer is nothing more than overgrown candida colonies.

ShopFreeMart PureSilver taken in therapeutic doses may be the answer to killing some of these critters that are causing so much havoc in our society today.

There was a young girl for example that had warts all over her body. Her doctor would burn off the ones around her mouth just so she could eat. She started taking a therapeutic dose of ShopFreeMart Silver and in 6 weeks time, every wart had fallen off from her head to her toes.

Silver by itself will conquer many problems, especially where there is any kind of inflammation involved, because where there is inflammation, there are also colonies of bacteria, viruses or yeast.

I have seen so many conditions benefit from taking Silver that I recommend giving it a try. It could be an important part of your health protocol.

4. LEMON JUICE

Fresh squeezed lemon or lime juice kills cancer faster than chemotherapy without any side effects and since all diseases have essentially the same root, adding some lemon or lime to the diet could be helpful. This is an effective and proven method of cleansing which can facilitate healing throughout the entire body.

Several times throughout the day I drink 20 oz. of water with the juice of 2 freshly squeezed small limes or 1/2 to 1 lemon and 1/4 tsp. of Real Salt. I do this as often as I feel hungry or I need more energy.

Note: DO NOT use regular table salt and if you are severely dehydrated (which many people are) you may need to use smaller amounts of salt in the beginning as your body is in the mode of retaining water and will take some time to regulate itself to having the right kind of salt and plenty of water.

Thousands of people regularly use lemon water as a way to cleanse the body and it can safely be done for 7 days without eating any other food.

This can also be done for shorter durations of tme to fit your personal scheldule.

You should also get extra rest whenever going on a cleanse.

5. SIAGA

If I were only able to choose one ShopFreeMart product for strengthening the immune system and warding of disease, it would clearly be Siaga. I give this product a 5-star rating due to the large number and variety of nutrients that it provides, many of which are well-documented on pub-med sites as strengthening the body in its fight against immune deficiencies, respiratory symptoms, elevated blood pressure and blood sugar and cancer.

Note: In rare cases, some people may experience detox symptoms (diarrhea, tiredness or pain). If you experience these symptoms, you may reduce the amount you are taking for a few days. Detoxification is actually a good thing and if you can live with the symptoms, it is best to get these toxins out of your body.

Drinking extra water will allow the Siaga to do its job even better and remove any toxins that may be released and flush them out of your body more effectively. From my own experience, ShopFreeMart Hydration Water helps to hydrate the body and flush out toxins better and faster than any other water I have found and when mixed with distilled water it is even more effective at removing toxins than when mixed with spring or filtered water.

***Adequate Water Is Imperative for Absorption and Detoxification***

6.  BREATHING EXERCISES - All disease is accompanied by low Oxygen levels.

Quote From Chapter on Breathing Exercises: "Here is some exciting breakthrough news regarding Cancer and all other diseases. This information will tell you how to quickly have 12 times more Oxygen going through your bloodstream and reaching every cell in your body. This was scientifically documented at a major University in Utah.

7. MAGNESIUM - Studies show that many foods today are lacking in Magnesium and therefore many people are deficient in this important mineral.

NOTE: ShopFreeMart Magnesium is perhaps the best source of Magnesium that you can buy. It can be taken orally and or applied topically.

Magnesium deficiency can include muscle cramps, muscle twitching, facial tics, poor sleep, and chronic pain. Tests showing Calcium deficiency may actually be Magnesium deficiency and one of the first recommendations upon receiving low Calcium test results is Magnesium supplementation. 

Prior to finding ShopFreeMart Magnesium, my research indicated that the best way to absorb Magnesium was transdermally and that many serious health symptoms respond favorably when applying liquid Magnesium to the skin. ShopFreeMart Pure Magnesium can be used both topically by rubbing into the skin and also internally.

8. OIL SWISHING

Oil Swishing is one of the least costly methods of getting toxins out of your body and many people have cured themselves of numbers of serious ailments with this simple home remedy alone.

This simple method makes it possible to effectively treat the most varied diseases, in some cases enabling one to avoid surgical intervention and the taking of medications that can have harmful side effects. The exciting factor of this healing method is its simplicity.

It consists of swishing cold-pressed Sunflower or Sesame oil in the mouth. The healing process is accomplished by getting rid of toxic waste without disturbing the healthy micro flora. In this way it is possible to heal cells, tissue and all organs simultaneously. Dr. Karach says human beings are living only half their life span. "They could potentially live healthy to be 140 to 150 years old."

The method:

In the morning before breakfast on an empty stomach you take one tablespoon of cold-pressed Sunflower or Sesame oil in the mouth but do not swallow it. Move the oil "slowly" in the mouth as in rinsing or swishing and as Dr. Karach puts it, "sip, suck and pull through the teeth" for fifteen to twenty minutes. This process makes oil thoroughly mixed with saliva.

Swishing activates the enzymes and the enzymes draw toxins out of the blood. The oil should not be swallowed as it has become toxic. As the process continues, the oil gets thinner and turns white. If the oil is still yellow, it has not been pulled long enough. It is then spit from the mouth. The oral cavity must be thoroughly rinsed and the mouth must be washed thoroughly. Don't brush with toothpaste. Just use normal tap water and good old fingers to clean.

If one were to see one drop of this "swishing" liquid magnified 600 times under a microscope, one would see microbes in their first stage of development. Therefore clean the sink properly; you can spray a little bit of ShopFreeMart PureSilver to disinfect the sink because the spittle contains harmful bacteria and toxic bodily waste. Anti-bacterial soap has some bad side effects and therefor I do not recommend using it.

It is important to understand that during the oil-pulling/swishing process one's metabolism is intensified. This leads to improved health. One of the most striking results of this process is the fastening of loose teeth, the elimination of bleeding gums and the visible whitening of the teeth.

The oil pulling /swishing is done best before breakfast. To accelerate the healing process, it can be repeated three times a day, but always before meals on an empty stomach.  See Oil Swishing

9.  ShopFreeMart NVIRO Soap HOT BATHS

I was told a story about a person who had 4th stage pancreatic cancer. He was in a lot of pain so his doctor put him on morphine. He discovered that taking very hot baths with 1 oz. of a coconut-based soap added to the bath water gave him a tremendous amount of relief and for this reason he sometimes took multiple baths daily.

According to the person who told me this story, the bath water turned quite dark and had a foul odor, apparently from something that was coming out of his skin.

Supposedly his cancer went away in a few months and the only change in his lifestyle was the hot coconut soap baths.

This is purely anecdotal, but if you are suffering from any kind of pain, try taking a hot bath with a capful or two of NVIRO soap added to it and just see if you get some relief.

NVIRO soap is made from coconut; it is all natural and is a powerful enough to clean your oven and your grill, yet totally safe and gentle enough to wash your baby's bottom.

Prior to getting into the bath, I recommend drinking a warm glass of ShopFreeMart Hydration Water (DO NOT HEAT ANYTHING IN A MICROWAVE OVEN).

Make sure that your bath water is as hot as you can comfortably stand so that you will perspire profusely.

Do this as often as seems expedient.

10. DIET - QUIT PUTTING JUNK FOODS INTO YOUR BODY!

Everything in the universe has its own unique vibration. The word poison comes from the same root as positive and poisons destroy the electrical balance of the neutrons that revolve around the nucleus of the atoms that make up your cells, making you sick.

You should generally eliminate all acid forming foods including sodas, sugars, artificial sweeteners, wheat, corn grains, canned fruits, fruit juices and most dairy products. Especially eliminate ALL GMO food sources. GMO foods are genetically altered and the human body CANNOT utilize such foods. Furthermore, ALL GMO foods are laden with toxic chemicals that are used in the process of growing them.

I find that when people cannot get rid of pain and are not responding favorably to the rest of this protocol, there is something they are eating or drinking that they need to let go of and it could be as simple as eating foods that are genetically modified or eating meat that came from animals that were fed GMO foods.

Fruits and vegetables should ALWAYS be fresh and vine ripened. Raw fruits and vegetables can be eaten together, but NEVER eat fruits with meat, cooked vegetables or flour products. Fruits were designed to leave the stomach within half an hour and when eaten with other foods, they will remain in the stomach for longer than half an hour and they will produce a lot of acids and gases. Canned foods are not fit for human consumption and will not give you what you need to create healthy cells.

Taking a little apple cider vinegar or some digestive enzymes with heavy foods can help improve digestion and reduce acid reflux from indigestion.

Plenty of pure water is essential to health. In addition to all other drinks that you may consume, you need to drink half your body weight in ounces of water. For example, if you weigh 100 lbs. you need to drink 50 ounces of water daily. However, if you are drinking ShopFreeMart Hydration Water you won't have to drink so much. I believe that drinking one 8 oz glass of ShopFreeMart Hydration Water will hydrate you better than drinking a gallon the same water not treated with ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops Concentrate.

11. CHANGING THE HEART BY THINKING POSITIVE THOUGHTS! "Negativity is a killer and behind every cancer is negativity and perhaps the inability to forgive."

(SEE FORGIVENESS)

11. Another thing that I use, and which I find to be very effective is to meditate or sit quietly and imagine that my body has all of the nutrition it needs for healing and rejuvenation. I then surround myself with the feeling of having this nutrition by asking myself, "How does it feel to have all of the nutrients I need for healing and rejuvenating my body?"  See Faith

You can end this meditation with an affirmation by saying something like "So let it be done" or "I am so happy and thankful that I now have all of the nutrition I need to heal and rejuvenate my body."

By using the Health Protocol - What if the Worst Thing that could Happen is Nothing?

Before. Before. After.

Christine Waterbury had 4th Stage Thyroid and Lymph Node Cancers when she started on the Health Protocol. After checking into the hospital, she was infected with MRSA Virus, which by itself is often fatal. With a weakened immune system and due to the late stage of her cancers and the fact that doctors have nothing that will kill MRSA, they gave her up to die.

Her husband Richard heard about my health protocol and he began giving her Silver, while she was still in the hospital. He frequently rubbed Silver on the bottoms of her feet. Richard believes that the Silver was absorbed into her bloodstream, killing the MSRA.

About the Author


Author

I grew up on a dairy and pig farm in Idaho. By the age of three, I was gathering eggs, feeding chickens, giving grain to the cows while my father milked them and steering the 2-ton truck after my father got it going in granny gear, while he pitched hay to the cows.

Although nobody knew it at the time, pork and dairy did not agree with me and as a result I did not thrive physically when I was growing up. In fact, I contracted TB, which weakened my lungs and I had bouts of pneumonia once or twice a year. I was also in constant pain and it wasn't until years later that I learned why. Upon having full body x-rays a bone specialist told me that I had the worst case of childhood arthritis he had ever seen. When showing me the x-rays he showed me where every bone in my body was scarred from the arthritis, but he couldn't tell me why I had arthritis.

In the early seventies, I entered into law school. My decision to become a lawyer was based upon a number of experiences. My father was a member of the John Birch Society, which was financed by Fred Trump, who was a personal friend of its founder, Robert Welch and also the father of our 45th President, Donald J. Trump. As a result, I was red-pilled at an early age, or in other words made aware of corrupt politicians, when such things were still considered to be conspiracy theories, but which later have all proven to be true. I saw becoming a lawyer as perhaps a way to have a beneficial influence upon society.

Another thing that pushed me this direction, our farm bordered the Salmon River and each year, for a number of years, our river bank was being eroded and washed down the river during high water from snow melting in the mountains each spring. For approximately seven straight years, my father applied for permits to build a rock jetty at the top of his property to prevent erosion.  Each year, he got a permit from the Idaho Fish and Game Department, but the Army Corps of Engineers denied him the required permit. Finally, after getting Fish and Game approval one year, he contacted an Idaho Congressman who arranged a teleconference with the Army Engineers, in which a verbal permit was obtained, with a promise of a written permit to follow shortly in the mail.

With only a few days before the expected high water to begin, which would prevent the work being done, my father hired a contractor to haul in a few dump loads of large rocks, consistent with the promised permit. Instead of a permit, the Army Corps sued my father for $10,000 a day. That's a lot of money now and was even a lot more then. This suit ensued long enough to reach over $10,000,000.

One day, by the grace of God, a Utah attorney who owned some mining claims near our farm, was in the area and needed some short poles to stake some of his claims. When driving by, he saw my father cutting poles to build a gate, so he pulled into our driveway and asked if he could buy some poles. When my father learned that he was an attorney, he recounted what the Army Corps of Engineers was doing to him. The attorney said, that is exactly the kind of cases I specialize in. He went on to say, that if he could get permission to cross state lines, that he would represent my father pro-bono and when he won, would sue the Corps for millions of dollars and take a percentage of the proceeds. He did in fact win, but died in a car accident a few days before the actual dismissal. Had the Corps known that he died, it may have ended differently. What I saw as a teenager is that an honest attorney had saved my father's farm and that was how I wanted to help others.

However, as I was attending law school, I happened to take an elective class in nutrition. I became absorbed in the idea that all of my health problems may be diet related. I spent so much time studying nutrition that my other studies suffered. It soon became obvious that I needed to change my major, which I did and through my research and journalism I have been able to help thousands of people live healthier and happier lives.

Something else that has greatly impacted my life is network marketing. Winters were cold where we lived, sometimes reaching forty degrees below zero and lacking facilities that allowed us to milk cows year round, we dried them up in the fall and were therefore without income for the better part of four months each year.

My father got involved with network marketing to help subsidize our income and I followed suit at the age of fourteen. Jim Rohn, another Idahoan was promoting a company called Abunda Vita which I joined. Jim Rohn went on to become a world renowned author, speaker and motivator. I later became involved with a number of other well-known companies as well as others that did not last so long. 

I eventually rose to be the second top producer of three companies and top producer of three others. Four of these six companies took away my income and the fourth time that happened, I lost so much trust in the industry that I simply could not do it again. That is when I made the decision to start my own company.


What Is ShopFreeMart?

ShopFreeMart is a Member Club with some similarities to Sam's Club and Costco. You must be a member of ShopFreeMart to enjoy the privilege of purchasing ShopFreeMart products, however there is never a cost to become a member.

ShopFreeMart is unique among member clubs due to the fact that they share company profits with their members. The primary purpose of member records is to track every member purchase in order to pay a profit share to the person who referred that member to ShopFreeMart.

My ShopFreeMart Vision

by John Austin

About six years ago I had a vision. It started out as a night dream, but for another ten minutes after I awoke and was fully conscious, I continued to see in full-color panoramic view what I am about to describe to you.

But before I do, let me tell you about another equally vivid and powerful dream that I had some 30 years before this one. I was dressed in a nice business suit and was surrounded by countless millions of people. It was as if they were all present, but I knew that they were literally from all parts of the world and they were all looking to me for some kind of message or instruction.

This happened long before we had computers and Internet, or any means of communication that could unite millions of people simultaneously. I did not understand what this vision might lead to, but it was so real and so profound that it never left me and I have always believed that one day it would come to pass.

This first dream appears to dovetail my second vision, which has to do with ShopFreeMart and I have no doubt that ShopFreeMart is the vehicle that will bring this first dream to fruition. Now for the rest of the story.

ShopFreeMart Activate™

ShopFreeMart Activate is a proprietary blend of Chitin/Chitosan oligosaccharide-based food product fortified with vitamins that is designed to reduce fungal-candida, increase healthy bifidobacteria in the colon, reduce irritation of bowel, high blood sugar, hypertension, LDL cholesterol and excess weight, inhibit absorption of fat, support restful sleep, immune system, liver function, kidney function and digestion, activate and increase electrical potential of cells and clean cells of unwanted waste.

Chitosan oligosaccharides are made from highly refined crab shell and is a dietary fiber that can be safely consumed. These six-chain sugar polymers can survive heat and acid and can reach the colon where they are broken down by the enzymes and delivered throughout the body to cleanse cells of waste, this causing them to function more efficiently. In Japan, chitin/chitosan are said to work as “cell activators” because of their remarkable binding and cleaning ability. The oligosaccharide form of chitosan is widely used in Japan to treat ailments such as hypertension, diabetes, high LDL cholesterol, gastric ailments, liver ailments and more, because of its ability to bind with fats, lipids and waste in the body.

The Effects of Colonic Imbalance

The increase of harmful bacteria lowers the body’s ability to absorb calcium into the bone and muscle tissues because of the increased ability to absorb fats and salts. Harmful bacteria can cause diseases such as colon cancer, arteriosclerosis, diabetes and some autoimmune diseases. Without proper colonic balance, harmful bacteria and yeast organisms such as Candida Albicans are permitted to grow out of control. Since yeast is a living organism that excretes waste into the body, Candida over-growth has been thought to cause a variety of health problems from vaginitis, over-sensitivity to fungus and mold, respiratory problems, acne, headache, inability to lose weight, edema, chronic fatigue, constipation/diarrhea to name only a few. Because the chitin/chitosan oligosaccharides clean waste from cells and facilitates growth of good bacteria, it can be considered as an anti-candida food.

The Role of Bifidobacteria

The human colon contains trillions of bacteria (good and bad) which absorb nutrients from the colon. Bifidobacteria is a beneficial bacteria responsible for keeping colonic balance. A high presence of this bacteria is necessary for normal bowel movements, proper digestion of protein and the accelerated utilization of the vitamin B group of vitamins. Stress, antibiotics, improper diet, food additives, chlorinated and fluoridated water, refined sugars and flour products, birth control pills are just a few of the factors that kill good bacteria and allow harmful bacteria to grow. Persons with a high presence of this bacteria experience less gastric problems, and usually suffer fewer chronic diseases because of higher immunity.

Is ShopFreeMart Activate Safe?

People with shellfish allergies should start out slowly or consult a physician before taking. There are no known side effects since chitosan and its oligosaccharide derivatives come from the shell, not the meat of the shell fish. There are also no known side effects when taken with medication. ShopFreeMart Activate is a food product not an herb or a drug and has no toxicity.

How To Take Activate

If you are trying to lose weight, Activate should be taken 3x daily 30 minutes prior to meals with 8 or more ounces of water. If you do not need to be on a restrictive diet, take in between meals with a glass of water.

ShopFreeMart Vitalize™ Incubated Egg Extract




ShopFreeMartVitalize™ Incubated Egg Extract is comprised of MeB12 in combination with nutrients that are extracted from 9-day-old, incubated, fertile chicken eggs using a patented process developed in Norway. No other dietary supplement on the market brings together these advanced ingredients in clinically relevant dosages to provide fast, long-lasting support for mind-body wellness under times of stress.

ShopFreeMart Vitalize nutritional profile includes amino acids, glycopeptides and oligopeptides held in a unique balance not found in other whole food supplements. A number of clinical studies indicate that this extract acts as a catalyst for hormonal production and expression, including testosterone, the hormone with the most potent effect on sexual desire for both men and women.

Incubated Egg Extract has shown to provide major benefits for people dealing with stress-related conditions, due to its ability to positively influence levels of cortisol, often called “the stress hormone.

And of course, no stress support supplement would be complete without the key “anti-stress” Vitamin B12. But we didn’t settle for just any B12. We selected only the most clinically advanced, high-absorption, pharmaceutical-grade form possible. MeB12 is a patented form of methylcobalamin costing over $3,000 per pound.

Vitamin B12 is an important nutrient that helps prevent memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease and pernicious anemia. MeB12 differs in both form and function from common forms of B12 such as cyanocobalamin.

MeB12 has been shown in clinical research to:

  • Contribute to normal red blood cell formation*
  • Contribute to a normal function of the immune system
*
  • Contribute to normal cell division
 in support of brain health and function*
  • Contribute to normal energy metabolism*

No other dietary supplement on the market brings together these advanced ingredients in clinically relevant dosages to provide fast, long-lasting support for mind-body wellness under times of stress.
Study on Lowering Stress Response

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study was performed to test the possible effect of Incubated Egg Extract in acute stress (TSST). The study specifically looked at:

  • Heart rate
  • Cortisol level
  • Subjective evaluation of acute stress (VAS)

The study used nonsmoking healthy male volunteers, age 20-50 years old.

The result of the study showed that the participants taking patented Incubated Egg Extract scored significantly lower in the subjective acute stress under TSST compared to the placebo group (graph below to the left).

Study on Lowering Depression

Also, Published in the Journal of Medicinal Food, a 12 week double-blind, placebo-controlled study investigated the effects of Incubated Egg Extract intake on outcome measures for depression.

The study indicates that the fertilized egg powder has an anti-depressive effect and may be an alternative or an adjunct to anti depressive medication for some patients.

Study on Muscle Growth, Strength, and Performance

A six-week, double-blind placebo-controlled study was conducted by Professor Törnblom at the University of Colorado and Arapahoe Community College. The study compared the effectiveness of two nutritional supplements in increasing muscle strength and muscle mass. The effects of taking 5 grams of a 50/50 blend of Incubated Egg Extract and Creatine were compared with taking only 5 grams of Creatine Monohydrate by itself. Results are shown below.

                                Patented Egg Extract + Creatine     Creatine Monohydrate Alone
Increases in Leg Press                   21.2 Kg increase                         12.2 Kg increase
Increases in Bench Press               21.2 Kg increase                          6.1 Kg increase

In addition, a number of subjective conditions including energy levels, stamina, and subjective health were also measured. Virtually all of the study participants who took Incubated Egg Extract experienced a significant increase in physical energy, stamina, and muscle strength.
Study on Sexual Desire / Libido Enhancement

In 1997 a study was published to The Journal of International Medical Research through Cambridge Medical Publications that looked at how Incubated Egg Extract could increase male libido.

Over periods as short as 2 weeks 58% of participants with low sex drive noticed improvements.

For many years, people in Norway and throughout Scandinavia have extracted and consumed the nutrients from 9-day-old, fertilized, pre-embryonic chicken eggs that are incubated under controlled conditions until they have reached peak levels of nutrients and growth factors.

There are other countries that have long benefited from eating incubated eggs.

In the Philippines and several of the Asian countries, there is a traditional food called balut. Balut is a fertilized chicken or duck egg that is incubated for 21 days. This egg has a fully formed baby chick, which would prevent many Westerners from eating it and even some Asiatic people as well. So they also have a second egg called Penoy that is fertilized for only 9-days. The chick has not yet started to be formed at this stage. Both of these eggs are then boiled and sold by street vendors who walk through the neighborhoods, frequently after dark hollering balut, balut.

Boiling the eggs compromises some of the health benefits, but even then, both of these eggs are said to give you strong knees, good libido and a very refreshing night’s sleep and that is due to the high content of proteins and a substance called Laminin.

What is Laminin?

From Wikipedia: “Laminins are a family of proteins that are an integral part of the structural scaffolding of basement membranes in every animal tissue.”

Laminins are literally what hold us together. They are Cell Adhesion Molecules and without them, we would literally fall apart.

Laminin content reaches its peak at 9-days of incubation and many people have claimed to receive almost miraculous health benefits after consuming these eggs for a period of time.

Note: This information is for educational purposes only. ShopFreeMart makes no claims as to the content or amount of Laminin in its Vitalize™ Incubated Egg Extract.

Patented Extraction Process

Using a patented process, it is possible to extract and freeze-dry the nutrients found in fertile, incubated eggs, thus preserving them and making them available to people who otherwise could not partake of the wonderful health benefits they produce.

These nutrients include proteins, 22 amino acids, vitamins, minerals, growth factors and biological defense factors, oligopeptides and glycopeptides among a host of other nutrients needed to develop the embryo and produce a healthy chick.

Note: These are all-natural nutrients extracted directly from a universally accepted food source (fertilized chicken eggs) and are not to be confused or associated with synthetic peptides and other unnatural substances.

Research done on Incubated Egg Extract confirms a wide range of important health benefits, some of which include:

  • Increasing Libido
  • Moderating Stress Response
  • Improving Emotional Balance
  • Reduction of excess body weight
  • Improving Muscle Tone & Strength
  • Improving Stamina & Energy Levels
  • Maintaining Healthy Cortisol Levels
  • Building Collagen for Healthier Skin
  • Regulating Production of Serotonin
  • Promoting Longer & More Restful Sleep
  • Giving an overall sensation of well-being
  • Improving Brain Function, Focus & Memory

Patented Incubated Egg Extract

A few years ago, the original patented Incubated Egg Extract from Norway was introduced to the world using a different trade name than Vitalize™ Incubated Egg Extract through referral-based marketing. A vast majority of people who supplemented with the original patented formula were amazed at their increased alertness, mental acuity, reduced joint pain, increased mobility, improved energy levels and feeling of well-being. This unique product took the health care and referral based industry by storm and for quite some time it was the talk of everyone in the industry.

Unfortunately, like so many products before it, the original product was replaced with another ingredient and people stopped getting the same level of wonderful results they previously enjoyed and consequently, many of them simply quit purchasing it.

The Good News

ShopFreeMart has acquired the “original” patented Incubated Egg Extract and we are extremely excited to now be able to offer it to our ShopFreeMart members!

How does Vitalize™ Incubated Egg Extract Work as a Dietary Supplement?

In the 1970’s a growth factor called FGF was discovered in 9-day-old Incubated Eggs.

FGF is not present in other amino acid formulas. FGF must be acquired through the diet, so unless you make a regular habit of eating balut or penoy, you will no doubt see the importance of supplementing with ShopFreeMart Vitalize Supplement.

Effect of FGF on the Human Body

FGF is responsible for the complex process of turning amino acids and other nutrients contained in the chicken egg into the building blocks of life.

FGF also plays a vital role in the development of blood vessels and neurites in the brains of all mammals. The lining of the circulatory system assists the distribution of nutrients to all parts of the body. Neurites are the part of the neurons in the brain that send and receive information.

The presence of FGF enables quicker absorption of nutrients and this is one of the principal reasons why embryonic growth happens so fast.

Many teams of scientists have tried to figure out how FGF benefits humans. What they discovered is that FGF has a connection to stem cell formation – the body’s natural “repair” mechanism.

Acting like stem cells, FGF can differentiate into a wide variety of healthy cells which can then be utilized by the body to help repair damaged and dysfunctional tissues, which can potentially turn FGF into an important factor for the treatment of neurological diseases.

FGF directs amino acids and peptides to the right cells of the body, playing a vital role in telling cells how to best utilize these nutrients for cell growth and repair. FGF concentrates in areas that have undergone damage, turning into healthy cells of that particular organ or tissue. This activity can rapidly assist the body in healing injuries and improving the health and function of problem areas. This is one of the reasons why 9-day-old incubated fertile eggs have such far reaching health benefits.

Clinical studies show that FGF speeds up tissue repair and healing, rejuvenating the body and improving cellular health.

Note: This information is for educational purposes only. ShopFreeMart makes no claims as to content or levels of FGF in its Vitalize™ Incubated Egg Extract product.

Reduced Cortisol

Studies showed that Incubated Egg Extract can reduce cortisol production by nearly 50 percent. Cortisol is a leading cause of stress and stress related weight gain. Reducing cortisol is one of the keys to keeping chronic stress under control, achieving emotional balance and preventing the formation of fat cells caused by stress.

Although some people received noticeable results in as little as 48 hours, the benefits of taking Vitalize™ Incubated Egg Extract are accumulative and reportedly improve over time, which may include reduced stress levels, better moods, improved digestion, improved eyesight, stronger knees, better libido and better functioning of the organs of elimination.

Improved Brain Function and Memory

Glycine is a neurotransmitter found in 9-day-old incubated eggs that enhances brain function and memory by controlling glutamate levels in the brain.

Incubated eggs are also a source for lysine, which controls serotonin production and arginine which is needed for the formation of growth hormone.

Incubated eggs are also a good source for leucine and isoleucine, both of which have a beneficial effect on brain function. They are used by brain cells in the production of biochemical components that stimulate the functioning of the upper brain. This part of the brain is responsible for better focus and higher levels of alertness.

Lysine found in 9-day-old incubated eggs, controls serotonin production and arginine, which is needed for the formation of growth hormone.

All of these work together to enhance brain activity, improve mood and help in combating chronic stress.

Some people who were suffering from Alzheimer’s, memory loss and ADD reported an improvement in brain function after taking the original patented Incubated Egg Extract supplement.

Added Protection

Cysteine is another amino acid found in 9-day-old incubated eggs. Cysteine is a precursor to glutathione which is the body’s master antioxidant that protects the cells against free radical damage.

Cysteine also helps break down mucus that leads to inflammation, which can benefit people who suffer from respiratory diseases and infections. Chronic problems like bronchitis or COPD may improve by taking cysteine. Studies suggest that cysteine neutralizes some of the ill effects of cigarettes and a wide range of toxins and heavy metals when taken over time.

Youthful Skin, Healthy Hair and Nails

L-cysteine found in 9-day-old incubated eggs is necessary for healthy skin, hair and nails. Continued use of this amino acid tends to beautify and enhance appearance and texture of skin, hair and nails.

Glycine found in 9-day-old incubated eggs also enhances the effects of glutathione and has anti-aging properties as well. Glycine also builds collagen. Collagen is needed to maintain the elasticity and youthfulness of skin. It can be used to prevent the early appearance of wrinkles and to decrease facial lines.

The Role of Amino Acids

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and protein is the building block of tissues. ShopFreeMart Vitalize™ Incubated Egg Extract is an excellent source of 22 amino acids.

Some of the most important protein building blocks found in 9-day-old incubated fertile eggs:

Cysteine, Glutamic acid, Glycine, Alanine, Lysine, Arginine, Methionine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Tyrosine, Ornithine.

These amino acids are rarely found together in one place, making ShopFreeMart Vitalize™ Incubated Egg Extract a virtual super food. These amino acids have a profound effect on energy levels, endurance and ability to complete strenuous workouts. They also lift the mind, making it easier to remain positive and motivated.

Protein:

  • Protein is made up of Amino Acids
  • Protein is a component of every cell and tissue in the human body
  • Hair and the nails are mostly made up of protein
  • Repair of damaged tissue is predominantly dependent upon protein
  • Proteins are essential for the production of enzymes and hormones
  • Protein helps curb hunger, thus contributing to healthy weight
  • Protein is essential for muscle growth and lean muscle mass
  • Protein is also vitally important for bone health

Peptides and Health

The peptides found in Incubated Egg Extract come from fertile chicken eggs (a universally accepted food source) and are not to be confused with peptides synthesized in a laboratory.

Peptides play a really important role in brain function. They are found in large quantities in the hypothalamus and they affect hormone production and the overall balance of the endocrine system.

ShopFreeMart Vitalize™ Incubated Egg Extract contains small amino acid chain peptides. These are called oligopeptides and because of their size, they are easily absorbed through the lining of the digestive tract.

Bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts can benefit from this supplement. As we have seen from the study above, Incubated Egg Extract produces better results in terms of increased strength than creatine. The numerous health benefits that ShopFreeMart Vitalize™ Incubated Egg Extract may deliver could make it the supplement of choice for many health enthusiasts.

Start your journey to better health with ShopFreeMart Vitalize™ Incubated Egg Extract.

ShopFreeMart Nano Cards


ShopFreeMart Nano Cards are made of a naturally ocurring ceramic material that produces a constant stream of negative ions which have a net positive effect upon human and animal health.

What are Ions?


Something in the Air

Negative and positive ions exist everywhere in nature. Positive ions abound in air polluted with industrial waste, automobile exhaust, airtight homes and offices and in dry, windy climates. Negative ions about near waterfalls and in the air following a gentle rain. Negative ions are said to be “the next best thing to love”

Negative ions have long been attributed to improvements in mood and physical health. Research supports the view that negative ions have a net positive effect on health, including improved mood, stabilized catecholamine regulation and circadian rhythm, enhanced recovery from physical exertion and protection from positive ion-related exhaustion disorders, stress and electromagnetic radiation.

Negative ion-generating technology has been shown to eliminate airborne pollutants, dust, cigarette smoke, pet dander, pollen, mold spores, viruses, and bacteria from the air and reduce the negative effects of EMF radiation from electronic devices.

When I first started researching the benefits of negative ions, I was amazed to find an overwhelming amount of research regarding positive and negative ions and far infrared light (FIR) and how they affect human health.

Negative ions are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that we absorb in abundance in certain environments. Think of mountains, waterfalls, and beaches. Once negative ions reach our bloodstream, they produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy.

Early clues about the biological effect of positive ions on human health appeared as reports of increased irritability, migraine attacks and thromboembolism in response to alterations in atmospheric electrical states that accompany incoming weather fronts. (1)

Scientific evidence began to mount in the 1970s when researchers measured metabolic changes in mice and rats in response to changes in positively or negatively charged ions, including alterations in serotonin levels and recovery rate from illness. When exposed to positive ions (which accumulate in the atmosphere at the beginning of a storm) researchers routinely noted that animals became agitated, aggressive and were more prone to respiratory illness. Furthermore, when mice were infected with influenza virus and housed in an environment depleted of negative ions, death rates increased, indicating the need for negative ions in the environment as a benefit to overall health. (2)

Later, researchers measured the impact of atmospheric electricity on human subjects by monitoring daily changes in urine excretion of neurohormones in samples gathered from 1,000 volunteers exposed to positive ions generated 1 to 2 days prior to the arrival of a storm front. By measuring the changing levels of neurohormones in the 24-hour urinary output of the subjects during normal and weather-stress days, the researchers compiled a profile of changes in levels of serotonin, adrenaline, noradrenaline, histamine and thyroxine.

Researchers found that exposure to positive ions engendered by an incoming weather front produce a release of serotonin. (3)

They further identified three classes of weather sensitivity reactions as:

1. Irritable Syndrome;
2. Exhaustion Syndrome;
3. Hyperthyroidism with subclinical Apathetic Thyroid Symptoms.

Noting that these conditions occur during annual wind storms (Sirocco, Sharav and Santa Ana winds), the authors stated that the effects, “which are mainly due to positive ionization of the air,” could be “prevented by negative ionizing apparatuses.” (4)

Just as positive ions build up in the atmosphere prior to a storm front, negative ions accumulate following a storm. This surfeit of negative ions has long been associated with improvements in mood and physical health and research conducted in the last decade supports this view.

German researchers discovered a link between catecholamine regulation and lifespan after depriving experimental animals of negative ions. First, researchers isolated mice and rats in air-tight, sealed acrylic cases. Next, they filtered the ambient air to remove all negative ions from the sealed cases. Their research led to the discovery that a prolonged deficiency of negative ions led to an accelerated rate of death for the experimental animals. Examination of the animals led researchers to conclude that the results ‘strongly suggest that animal death is related to disturbances in neurohormonal regulation and pituitary insufficiency. (5)

To estimate the necessity of air ions (AIs) as a natural source of atmospheric gaseous superoxide for mammalia the effect of air ion deprivation on mice and rats was investigated. Ambient air deionization inside an experimental acrylic glass cage (AGC) was performed by electrostatic field, built up by acrylic glass surfaces. Under these conditions, four hours after the animals were placed into the AGC, the concentration of negative AIs was not detectable, the concentration of positive ions was (mean +/- SD) 77 +/- 18 ions x cm-3. The negative and positive AI concentrations in identical silicate glass cages (control) were 482 +/- 128 ions x cm-3 and 660 +/- 148 ions x cm-3 respectively. It was found that the prolonged deficiency of AIs in ambient air leads to accelerated death of the animals. (6)

Researchers at the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow discovered that negative ions are able to help protect the body from induced physical stress. When the researchers immobilized rats, and exposed them to negatively charged ions they discovered that the ions prevented the development of acute stress that are observed in untreated rats. The protective action of negative ions was observed in all the experimental animals independently of their types of behavior. (7)

British researchers at the Centre for Sport and Exercise Sciences in Liverpool exposed male subjects to negative ions and measured physiological responses, including body temperature, heart rate and respiration, while at rest and during exercise. Negative ions were found to significantly improve all physiological states, particularly during rest. Most important was the finding that negative ions are “biologically active and that they do affect the body’s circadian rhythms.” (8)

Research conducted at the Institute of Biophysics at the Russian Academy of Sciences, found that exposure to negative ions increased levels of the protective antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD).” (9)

So how does this all relate to our ShopFreeMart Nano Cards?

ShopFreeMart Nano Cards come 5 to a package and have been manufactured and produced utilizing a unique bio nano-composite ceramic powder, which provides an abundance of Far Infrared Rays (FIR) and Negative Ion Technology. Tested with expensive meters costing $1,300 each, these nano cards show a continuous reading of emitting 6,000 or more Negative Ions per card twenty four hours per day.

These cards also radiate countless healthful and beneficial nano light waves and negative ions that penetrate the skin and cells of the body, assisting in circulation and enriching the blood with oxygen, which improves every metabolic function in the body including the healing process, by helping to restore the body’s natural energies and homeostasis.

Possible Health Benefits

Helps increase proper and healthy blood circulation
Helps reduce stress and fatigue and increase energy
Helps release and eliminate harmful bacteria and toxins
Helps enhance the water molecules in the water you drink
Helps eliminate offensive odors in the car, refrigerator, or the body
Helps maintain freshness and increase shelf life of fresh food
Helps reduce back pain, migraine headaches, and the pain of arthritis
Helps facilitate a healthful environment for plants

How to Use ShopFreeMart Nano Cards

Simply put one of the Cards in your pocket or carry it with you. Not only are you receiving immediate health benefits, but now in cases of stress that you have put upon your body by exercise or injury, you will experience less inflammation and recovery time will be improved.

It is recommended to place a card in each shoe of anyone who is required to be on their feet for long periods of time. This may reduce pain and improve balance. Cards can also be applied to any areas where you are experiencing pain to reduce inflammation.

Put a card in the vegetable crisper of your refrigerator or under the eggs, dairy products, and under the meat to preserve freshness of foods for longer periods of time. Cards can also be put under a fruit bowel on the counter, or with your whole grains, nuts, and seeds to keep them fresher.

Glue a Nano Card on the bottom of your car’s gas tank for ionization of your gasoline. When gasoline is ionized, it makes for better combustion, which can translate to increased energy output, better gas mileage and reduced emissions.

Some people believe that putting a nano card on the gas meter coming into your home can also improve combustion and also that a nano card in your electrical panel can reduce spiking of electricity, which may slightly reduce consumption of electricity and lower your power bill.

Put nano cards in your bed and under your pillow for better sleep. Use your imagination as to where you can use them.

Tape one to your body or put one in a nylon stocking to be tied around your arm, leg, neck, forehead, temple, or wherever you are experiencing pain or inflammation.

An overabundance of positive (poisonous) ions cause inflammation and pain in the body. The abundance of negative ions and far-infrared light (FIR) being generated by the ShopFreeMart Nano Cards are known to penetrate through your clothing all the way into your deepest tissues and reduce inflammation by cancelling out the effect of the positive ions that are associated with the inflammation.

The Nano Card is safe and beneficial for everyone – adults, children, babies, and pets. Pets love having the Nano Card in their beds and under their water dishes.

Nano cards have been tested to provide beneficial Negative Ions and far Infrared Rays for more than 6 years. I like to have several of them close to me at all times. Try some for yourself and pass some out to your friends when you find somebody suffering from an ache or pain. Often times the pain will subside immediately and you will not only have a friend, but you can earn money every time someone asks you how they can get their own set of nano cards.

ShopFreeMart Compensation Plan


by John Austin

Most network marketers are practicing business without education. Even a lot of company owners come from the ranks of distributors and really don't understand the mechanics of compensation plans.

The point I am trying to drive home is that if company owners did things right and if people had an education in network marketing so they could avoid those companies that don't, there would seldom be a reason for failure.

Once you understand a few salient truths about compensation plans, you can easily and quickly know that most opportunies that come along are not even worth a second glance unless you are a jack rabbit that enjoys jumping from opportunity to opportunity.

Education does not necessarily make you smart and neither does old age and a teacher can only teach what they have been taught. I believe that God gave me a talent for understanding compensation plans in ways I have not heard others explain.

The six most common failures in compensation plans are:

1. The Fast Start Bonus
2. The Binary Compensation Plan
3. Most Matrix Compensation Plans
4. Many difficult rank advancements
5. Group volume requirements
6. Plans that make youi rely on what others do for your own rank advancement

The Fast Start Bonus was a late-comer to the industry. It did not always exist, but once it got introduced, it stuck around like a sore thumb, mostly because it sounds good. Everyone wants a "fast start" toward success, but in reality, the fast start bonus has been one of the greatest contributors to failure in the industry.

The theory behind the fast start bonus is that by giving 100% of the commission to the sponsor on his or her first sale will motivated them to make a lot more sales. Although it sounds good, it really only works that way for "sales" people.

The Fast Start Bonus typically pays only one person (direct sales commission) which defeats the entire purpose of multi-level marketing or paying several people for one sale.

How it works. Let's say that you enroll 5 new people your first month and you receive 100% of the commission paid on those sales. Nobody but you gets paid and if for some reason you don't enroll anyone your second month, your income will be $0.00 because even if the people you personally enrolled are duplicating, they will get 100% of the commissions from the sales they make.

Only if the people you enrolled the first month, purchase products again their second month will you receive a commission and it will be smaller because now it is being divided among other people. In some companies, you won't receive the commission until your third month and typically things don't get much better until you are 6-7 months into your business.

The typical Fast Start Bonus is causing you and everyone in your group to struggle financially. Statistically, 95% of the people who join any company end up dropping out, so even if you are one of the die-hards that stick around, you are fighting a never-ending battle of replacing people faster than they are dropping out.

The ShopFreeMart Jump Start is designed to give members a jump start to improving their health. the Jump Start Profit Sharing Plan pays 10% of the Profit Share Value (PSV) to the direct sponsor of the member making a purchase and the rest is divided among 8 other people, which increases your potential for future earnings to be many times higher in succeeding months compared to a typical Fast Start Bonus Plan. That of course is dependant upon duplication throughout your organization.

Personal sponsorship works toward rank advancement and I recommend that you never give away sponsorship on anyone that you refer, unless there is a special reason like they are blood related or the two people you have referred have sponsored each other in some other company.

Natural law says that the laborer is worthy of his hire and the non-worker SHALL NOT eat the bread of the worker. What you are proposing is to give your bread to people who have not earned it. Believe me, I use to think the same way. I have put upwards of 6,000 people under one person who had sponsored people in other companies, but didn't sponsor even one person when getting a downline for free.

Another time, I put somebody on my front line in a matrix and made them $3,000 a month without that person doing anything and then that person stole the names, phone numbers and email addresses of the team that I built and used them to build other businesses that I never received a penny from. Even thought this person had been a strong networker before, she was disabled by receiving welfare.

Another time, I put people under another strong networker and got him making $6,500 a month with doing almost nothing. He got married and went on a perpetual honeymoon with the money that I made for him.

I have built systems and done every imaginable thing to get people to do what they normally won't do and I finally realized that it is much easier and faster to look for existing pearls in oysters than it is to put a grain of sand inside of an oyster and wait for it to grow a pearl.

Every person has a sphere of influence and if you give them enough information for them to want to use some of the ShopFreeMart products, they will "naturally" share the benefits they receive with their friends.

The best thing for you to do is find a couple of questions that will identify within about 15 seconds if you are talking to an oyster that has a pearl or one that does not. It can be a topic that is in the news, like, "What do you know about coronavirus? If you know they have pain or some particular ailment, you may ask, "Do you know what causes arthritis? This book is a perfect gift to give them if they show an interest.

What you want to do is create a talking point and then don't be quick to start talking. Ask questions to learn more and dig deeper because most people don't reveal their buying button immediately. Only by being truthfully curious and inquisitive will you learn perhaps the single thing that will cause them to be interested in looking at a solution.

If you just have what I call a "curious" conversation with people (be truly interested in learning more about them and let them talk about themselves, without trying to interject with some sales pitch) you will typically learn something about them that will lead to an opening. 

Let's say say you learn that they have high blood pressure. You could ask, "Do you know what causes high blood pressure?" Give them room to answer and then say, "I found a book on the internet, written by a health researcher that talks about the causes of over 200 diseases. Some of his remedies are simple and inexpensive. He doesn't charge for the information like so many others do. Would you like me to give you that website?

If you want to make a business of ShopFreeMart, I suggest that you watch the following called The Secret Formula.


Practice being curious as a way of learning if people you are talking to may be interested in something you have to offer. If not, don't ask (at least non now) and that way you either gain a new friend or never create distance between you and your existing friends.

Follow the Secret Formula using this method just being curious and teach those who want to join you to do the same. And remember, you will make more people successful by being an example of extraordinary success than you ever will by trying make them successful by doing the work for them. And in the end you will be respected by pretty much everyone, whereas if you do the work for others, they will always think that you should have done more.

Moreover, if you want to be charitable, you can earn money and give it to the "deserving" needy; but never enable someone to be lazy (not even children) by giving away members that you personally recruit. This has NEVER worked!

Finally, the ShopFreeMart Compensation Plan gives you what every millionaire and billionaire has and that is a vehicle to leverage other people's time and money sufficiently to achieve heights that you could never achieve by yourself. Only now it can be done without hurting anyone!

In my humble opinion, ShopFreeMart is the first company to offer the average person a real vehicle whereby they can achieve financial freedom!

Compensation Plans To Avoid

If you are thinking of making a career out of Network Marketing, you may want to avoid two (2) particular compensation plans:

(1) The Binary Plan requires you to build and balance two legs. Failure to do so can result in loss of "all" income and most people cannot build and balance two legs. Only 3% of the people earn money in a typical binary and we are aware of only two companies with a binary plan that have survived 20 years. So if you are looking for longevity in a network marketing opportunity, the odds are greatly stacked against you when joining a binary company.

(2) A pure matrix has never worked long-term. It is possible to create a hybrid matrix, so that you get the strong points of a matrix, but eliminate the weak ones. ShopFreeMart has created the first of its kind hybrid unilevel/matrix, which captures the positives and eliminates the negatives of the typical matrix.

The Uni-level has long proven itself to be the fairest, most stable and highest paying compensation plan in the industry.

As a previous compensaton plan consultant, I believe ShopFreeMart's Profit Sharing Plan is simply the best and the fairest I have ever seen.

ShopFreeMart Policy Guide

When joining a network marketing company, you are effectively signing a contract and if you don't know what to look for in the policies and procedures that you are agreeing to, you don't really know how to do your due diligence on any company. Only by becoming educated in that process can you know what kind of "phrases and gotchas" to look for.

A good policy guide will protect both the company and the associate. The problem with most policy guides is that they are one-sided and only favor the company; therefore, associates from countless network marketing companies have summarily been dismissed, and have lost their organizations and incomes for no justifiable reason, other than the company got in a financial pinch or the company owner simply got greedy.

This is not a small problem. I personally have been cheated by a number of company owners to the tune of millions of dollars. I built up an income of $100,000 a month in one company, only to see the company go down because of poor management. I discovered a glitch in their software and advised the company owner, but he told me I was wrong. After a couple of months the problem became unmanageable and could not be fixed and the company simply imploded.

I was the number two money earner in another young company and was earning $18,000.00 a month. The owner turned off my website along with those of several other associates, effectively stealing our incomes. There was nothing any of us could do because we all agreed to the policies and procedures.

The owner of this company is currently serving a 5-year prison sentence for other fraudulent behaviors. Perhaps his ill-gotten gain wasn't worth it after all.

My point is, in each of the examples above; the company owner had the "right" to do what he did, because of unfair clauses in the policy guides. I was dismissed along with others at the "sole discretion" of the owner and I will quote some of the clauses you need to look out for when checking out any network marketing company. Reading and understanding the policy guide (contract) is the most important thing you can do before deciding to join any company.

During my 47 years in this industry, out of the hundreds of policy guides I have read, there are only two (2) that I have found that are fair to the associate and which at the same time protects the company. Having a fair policy guide is so important, that I went into retirement for 3 years, because I couldn't find a company that met my standards for a good network marketing opportunity.

The risk factor is too high in choosing a company with an unfair policy guide, but at the same time you can't blame someone who doesn't know what to look for in a policy guide. After reading this, you will know.

By choosing the "right" company, not only are you protecting yourself, but also your downline associates and also your children and grandchildren who can receive the fruits of your labors for generations to come.

Mlm lawyers generally write policy guides and they are designed to protect the company. After reading enough of them, you begin to see how most of them were written by the same 3 attorneys. In fact many policy guides are word for word, except for minor changes like the name of the company.

There are really five categories to look for when analyzing a policy guide:

  1. Length or number of pages and the readability of the policies and procedures
  2. Clauses that mention termination or non-renewal
  3. Ongoing responsibilities
  4. Unusual responsibilities
  5. Miscellaneous red flags and warnings

Length of Policy Guide:

Most people don't even read the policy guide. They are so excited to get their business started that they just put a check mark saying they agree to the company policies, not realizing that they are agreeing to a contract that is going to affect them for the remainder of their network marketing career.

As a general rule, steer clear of policies that are more than six pages long, because if they are too long, there are too many places to hide the "gotchas". Mlm watchdog, a website that helps educate people about the pitfalls of mlm companies, says that policy guides should be no more than 15 pages. I have seen policy guides up to 65 pages long.

The first few pages are usually pretty harmless and most people don't have the tenacity to read far enough to find the things that will affect them later on. For this reason, some of the top experts on policy guides, recommend reading them from the back to the front. "You will waste less time in finding out "why" you shouldn't join that company."

For example, a common clause in many policies guides says, "We can terminate the associate for any reason without due cause." Unfortunately, you won't find this clause until you are about 30 pages into the contract.

One couple actually took a policy guide to their lawyer for him to read before joining a company. When they met with him for consultation, he laughed and said by the time he had read it half way through, he didn't even understand it. So if a lawyer can't understand it, how can we expect the lay associate to understand?

After reading hundreds of policy guides, it became readily apparent that most owners of network marketing companies don't trust their associates; and how can you build a business relationship where there is no trust? I have personally found that any person, who does not trust other people, is usually not trustworthy and should be avoided as a partner in business.

I have seen some policy guides are 50 pages long, without paragraphs or spacing. This makes them virtually unreadable. By the time you labor through such a document, you would be mentally exhausted and still would not understand what you had read.

If the policy guide is written in legalese, which most are, don't sign it because you won't understand it, and I can guarantee, it is written that way in order to take advantage of the unsuspecting associates.

Every word and every paragraph is either going to be used for you or against you and when you get into court, it is going to be used against you. I was in a lawsuit with a network marketing company and I learned that from experience!

So read your policy guide as if you were standing in court and you were trying to get the company to pay you money that they owe you. Ask yourself, "Am I signing something that can be used against me in the future?"

One policy guide from a large and well-established company has 40 red flags in their policy guide and some companies won't actually let you see the policies and procedures until you "join" the company.

Many people falsely believe that the company is never going to enforce their policy guide, but if they are not going to enforce them, why are they there? And as a network-marketing consultant for 16 years and an associate for 51 years, let me go on record and say, "They will enforce it every time they want your money!" You signed the contract and they can do it legally.

It doesn't matter how good your product, service or compensation plan is, one bad phrase or term in the policy guide negates all of the good you may find in a company, so let's take a look at some of the clauses that show up in almost all of the company policy guides:

Termination or Non-renewal:

"The company reserves the right to reject any application for a new distributor or application for renewal." (If they want your money, they will not renew your contract.)

"The company reserves the right to terminate or suspend any distributor at any time. Such termination or suspension shall be made by the company at its sole discretion." (If you are making money and they want it, they will terminate you!)

"The company may elect to not renew any distributorship for any reason it deems to be in the best interest of the company, its customers and other distributors. (If they want your money it will be in the best interest of the company.)

These reasons may include, but are not limited to the following:

1. Failure to use best efforts to promote the company's products and services.

2. Violations of the company's rules or policies and procedures.

3. Actions that bring dishonor to or impute the reputation of the company."

"Once an associate is terminated, the company shall have no obligation to maintain any content in his or her account." (So if you decide they have wrongfully dismissed you and you want to take them to court, you cannot subpoena any records from the company because they have "legally" purged your records.)

"Should an associate bring a suit against the company, he or she forfeits the right to trial by jury." (A judge has to follow rules and case law; a jury has the right to think about what is fair and even decide against the policy guide if they think it is in the best interest of justice. This happened to me personally. I was prevented from having a jury and I feel certain, based upon the facts that I would have won my case in front of a jury!)

Ongoing Responsibilities:

First you need to ask yourself, "Can I ever retire from this company? Can I take a vacation from this company?" There are clauses that state if you take a vacation for two months and don't talk to your downline, you can be terminated, much less being able to retire!

"An associate must demonstrate regular leadership and guidance." (This phrase is totally open-ended and all the company has to do is say that in their opinion or according to their definition of "regular leadership and guidance" you failed their requirements. This phrase has been used to terminate many associates.)

"Associates must have ongoing contact and communication with the associates in their downline organization. Examples of such contact and communication may include but are not limited to: newsletters, written correspondence, personal meetings, telephone contact, voice mail, electronic mail and the accompaniment of downline associates to company meetings, training sessions and other functions. Upline associates are also responsible to motivate and train new distributors regarding company product knowledge, effective sales techniques, company marketing and compensation plan and compliance with company policies and procedures."

In reality, very few people can fulfill this requirement because they don't have the knowledge, the training or the skills. Most network marketers do not come from sales trainer or executive backgrounds. To further explain the matter, if you signed up with a company today and you were lucky enough to sign up a new associate tomorrow, how could you motivate and train that person in sales training, compensation plan, policies and procedures, when you are only one-day old in the business? Especially when the company doesn't give you the training and guidelines you are supposed to follow!

Here is a real life example: There was a couple that worked together for a number of years for a "well-known" company. They were quite successful, but the wife got sick with cancer and could no longer work, and the husband took off six months to be with his wife until she died. When he returned to resume working his business, his business was not there.

He had been terminated because he had not maintained his ongoing contact with the company. The company was not interested in his explanation. He could however, "start again from scratch if he wanted to." (Even if this didn't happen to you personally, is this the kind of company owner you want to be in business with?)

When companies have these kinds of polices, they are putting associates into a position that they cannot possibly fulfill and it can, and often will be used against you. This is a tragedy and it does affect people's lives!

There are a number of well-known companies that require you to bring in new business each month. We all know that life sometimes gets in the way, like the forgoing example. Just remember, if you sign such a contract and for some reason fail to bring in new business one month and you lose your check, whose fault is it? You signed the contract.

One well-known company we know has a clause that will finally let you retire after ten years of bringing in new business every single month.

The object of network marketing is to have your own business and achieve the American Dream. You want to build it once, build it right and build it to provide a financial future for your children's children. If you are in a company that doesn't allow that, then you are in the wrong place. Furthermore, most of the policy guides don't really allow you to own your own business; the company virtually owns you!

Unusual Responsibilities:

"While you are with this company you are free to pursue any other network marketing company that you like, but you may not recruit people in your downline and this restriction remains in effect for six months after you leave this company for any reason." (First of all, you wouldn't leave that company if you were making money and what kind of company would restrict you from building your business for six months after you left them? You do after all have to feed your family!)

"Event Participation: The associate agrees to participate in up to 20 company meetings and events annually at his or her expense at the direction of the company." (The company can tell you where to go, even across country to a company convention, and how many times. Failure to do so is a "legal reason" for termination.)

"Associates must monitor the associates in their downline organization to be sure that downline associates do not make improper product or business claims or engage in any illegal or inappropriate conduct." (This clause turns you into a compliance officer and when you are first starting your business this might be possible to a degree, but when you have thousands in your organization, it will be virtually impossible. Just another way to "legally" steal your hard earned income.)

"The associate is responsible to pay the bill on their customers if they are delinquent or default on their payment." (If the customer realizes that he or she doesn't have to pay, what kind of a position does that put you into?)

Unusual Red Flags:

"Promotions are approved at the discretion of the upline leader." (Your advancement will normally give you more money and at the same time give "less" money to your upline leader. What happens if your upline leader doesn't want to lose that money and says no to your advancement?)

"If an associate has a high percentage of customers with defaults, the money owed will be taken out of the associate's commissions."

Also, watch out for publicly traded companies. The sole motivation for going public is to borrow a lot of money by selling paper stock. Publicly traded companies must post their financial statements, but most people don't read them. One company we looked at was over $20,000,000 in debt at the end of 2007. By the end of the first quarter of 2008, they were over $30,000,000 in debt.

Companies that get in financial trouble will almost always dismiss top money earners in order to recoup their losses. We have also seen a lot of companies change method of doing business after gaining tens of thousands of customers through the efforts of Associates who end up getting shafted. A "good" policy guide will prevent this from happening.

Honesty and Integrity:

Now that we have looked at some of the things to avoid, let's look at some of the things you want to look for in a network marking company. These are referred to by a number of experts as the Five Pillars of Network Marketing.

1) The first pillar is a company owner(s) that is honest and who has a working knowledge of network marketing and also has experience as an executive of a company.

It is often difficult to judge the honesty of a company owner except by reading the policy guide. If the policy guide has any loopholes that arbitrarily allow the owner to dismiss you, take your income, dilute products, change compensation plan or method of doing business, don't look any further. Run as fast as you can!

2) The second pillar is product and prices.

Many companies have good products, but they fail miserably in the area of pricing. Along with having exceptional products, prices should be competitive and affordable so that customers can see and feel the value of purchasing them, even if they weren't making money through the marketing plan.

3) Pillar number 3 is compensation.

Most compensation plans are designed so that the company owner gets filthy rich and makes it so only 5% of the associates at the top make any significant money. This is driven by greed, but in the end comes back to bite the company owner. What they fail to realize is that network marketing is driven by the masses of people at the bottom and when the average person can't make a respectable living, he or she will eventually drop out, which hurts the company and all associates in between.

New business is what causes a company to grow and associates and customers that remain loyal are what create "true" residual income. Great products at discount prices help to fuel both of these situations, but without an "honest" compensation plan the majority won't make money and people today need money more than ever before.

4) Pillar number four is policy guide.

The best policy guide will protect both the company and the associate, but not at the expense of each other. It will honor the associate and protect their interests, while at the same time requiring the associate not to misrepresent the company and do things that will jeopardize the business for everyone.

It protects against unjust termination, dilution of products, change of compensation and method of doing business.

5) Pillar number five is timing in the marketplace.

Most experts advise not to join a company that is under five-years old. That is because the first five years for any company are the most difficult and by then you can look at their track record and get a pretty good idea of how stable they are. You are looking for a company with a track record of stability and a likelihood of remaining in business for years to come.

This is only a general rule, because a lot of companies fail after reaching five-years in business, and there are brand new companies that will succeed. I believe that if the first four pillars of a company are exceptionally strong, then a younger company can be a good choice, especially if they have the right leadership and a good policy guide.

Obviously the sooner you enter a company, the more growing room you have because all of your friends haven't joined before you.

12 Signs You Are Eating Too Much Sugar


too much sugar

Most of us think that only people with diabetes have high blood sugar levels. That isn't necessarily true. Anyone can suffer from this and they will likely not notice the harm being done to nerves, blood vessels and organs as a result of this condition.

To prevent complications, you should be aware of the major symptoms that could indicate you are eating too much sugar.

Symptom number one is constant hunger. You’ve just eaten lunch and perhaps even dessert, but still you look for more food. That is probably a sign you are eating eat too much sugar.

High blood sugar prevents glucose from entering your cells and as a result your body is not getting the energy it needs and asks for food again and again. It’s a vicious circle. Try cutting off creamy desserts, carbonated drinks and don't put sugar in your tea or coffee. Eliminate sugar from your diet and you'll see results very soon.

Symptom number two is increased fatigue. Are you familiar with this feeling? Before you even get out of bed, or perhaps you’re out of bed and you're not quite awake yet and you already feel tired. There’s a simple explanation for this. When your blood sugar level is elevated, your body can't store and absorb glucose properly. Energy is used inefficiently and your body’s cells don't receive the fuel they need. That’s why you often feel tired for no reason.
It you simply can't cut sugar all at once, at least replace it with honey and we are talking about using a small spoon, not a whole jar.

Symptom number three is frequent urination. When your blood sugar is too high, your kidneys cannot reabsorb fluid, so your body attempts to bring the concentration of glucose to normal by diluting your blood with intracellular fluid. This results in frequent urination. In other words you run to the bathroom almost every five minutes. The only way to stop this annoying situation is to say no to sugar, candies, ice cream, muffins and other sweets you love. At least give it a try.

Symptom number four is dry mouth or excessive thirst. A dry mouth and thirst are responses to severe fluid loss. Your hypothalamus causes you to be thirsty by sending a signal to your brain. Of course, when that happens you are typically going to drink something. The problem is that most people are consuming beverages that are dehydrating, rather than hydrating. Replace your sweet drinks with water and if you want the water to get inside of your cells, add some ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops to your drinking water.

Avoid drinking juice drinks. A lot of junk foods and drinks are dressed up to look like something healthy when they are just the opposite. Juice drinks contain a lot of sugar. If you don't like the taste of plain water, add a piece of lemon, or some mint or perhaps some organic strawberry slices to your glass. This simple trick will make your water more appealing.

Symptom number five is sudden weight loss. If you happen to lose weight within a short period even though your meals contain a lot of calories, this could indicate high glucose levels in your blood. Here is why this can happen. Fluid loss leads to dehydration in your body, which obviously results in weight loss. If your insulin level is insufficient to metabolize all of the glucose in your blood, your body will start burning fat faster in order to produce energy. A large amount of urine when glucose levels are high makes your body spend a lot of calories. In this way your body tries to dump the excess glucose. This is not a healthy situation. In short, raising glucose levels leads to fluid loss and dehydration.

Symptom number six is infectious diseases. Urinary tract infections and yeast infections can occur in both men and women, however they occur more often in women with high sugar levels and diabetes. A significant amount of sugar creates a favorable environment for yeast and bacteria growth. Want to prevent UTIs and other infections? Eat as little sugar as possible and better if you can cut it out altogether. Try doing it for a week, then for a month and so on. This will result in a natural and healthy change of eating habits without stress.

Symptom number seven is dry skin. Did you know that dry skin is connected to high blood sugar levels? Here are the reasons. Excessive urination dehydrates your body to such an extent that your skin begins to dry out. Skin problems on your legs are a sign of narrowing of the arteries and poor blood circulation. High blood sugar also damages the nerves, disrupting the normal function of the sweat glands, which also affects the moisture levels of your skin.

Symptom number eight is difficulty concentrating. We all know the phrase that our brains need sugar for better work, however high blood sugar actually prevents glucose from entering your brain cells. This results in reduced energy inside your brain, which reduces the speed of thinking and decision making.

Symptom number nine is blurred vision. Blurred vision is often caused by dehydration of the eyes due to high blood sugar. Dehydrated cells lose their shape and become deformed, resulting in the inability of your eyes to focus properly.

Symptom number ten is slow healing of cuts and wounds. Have you noticed that your cuts and wounds are healing slower than usual? That can be due to vascular damage caused by high sugar levels, which leads to poor blood circulation, especially in your limbs, which in turn causes insufficient nutrition to the extremities of your body.

Symptom number eleven is Impotence. Difficulties maintaining an erection can be caused by high blood glucose. A normal erection requires healthy nerves, good blood flow and proper balance of hormones. An excess of sugar in your blood can affect each of these systems.

Symptom number twelve is irritability. According to research, people with high blood sugar are more anxious. The brain depends on a level supply of glucose and abrupt changes in this level affects the brain negatively. As a result your mood suddenly gets worse. Sugar also affects the absorption of another nutrient responsible for mood and that is the mineral chromium. Chromium is needed to maintain proper insulin levels. Insulin is the hormone that removes excess glucose from the blood. Lack of insulin is a condition called Diabetes.

So what can be done to alleviate some of these symptoms?

First is to get well hydrated. I personally add 6 drops of ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops to a gallon of distilled water and try to drink 2-4 liters per day. That is going to help dilute the sugar in the blood, make the blood flow better through the blood vessels, improving circulation and of course it will help carry more nutrients to the extremities of your body.

Sugar and or carbohydrate craving is a sign that you have an overgrowth of Candida.

The signs: You can't get through the day without bread or sugar.

Some of the causes: You have had more than your fair share of antibiotics or antacids, which could have triggered an overgrowth of bad bacteria.

Antibiotics kill "good" bacteria in the gut, while antacids neutralise the stomach acid that normally tackles bad bacteria. Yeast feeds on sugar. It triggers cravings for sugar and bread because the body quickly converts these to glucose.

Eating sugar makes the yeast multiply, thus intensifying cravings and creating a vicious cycle. Steroids and stress, which increase your body's secretion of the hormone cortisol, can suppress your immune system, allowing yeast to run wild, making sugar cravings constant.

The solution: Cut back on all forms of sugar, flour products, canned fruits and caffeine. Take ShopFreeMart Activate to kill off excess candida and to increase the number of good bacteria in the gut.

ShopFreeMart Sugar-D can help normalize blood sugar levels. It provides the important minerals chromium and vanadium which are both important in regulating insulin and blood sugar. Sugar-D can also reduce the food cravings and make you feel more satisfied if taken with a glass of water at least 1/2 hour before a meal. 

ShopFreeMart PureCopper can help increase energy levels. Copper is essential for the synthesis of ATP, which is the main source of energy for the body. Copper also strengthens the veins and capillaries which improves circulation and helps prevent weakness of the eyes. Copper is also the mineral to take that helps wounds heal more quickly. Copper is also needed for sugar metabolism.

If you are diabetic or on your way to becoming diabetic, magnesium is one of the most important minerals you can take. Lack of magnesium actually causes diabetes. ShopFreeMart PureMag crosses the blood-brain barrier, which can help improve concentration and brain function, whereas many of the popular brands do not, so PureMag is effective at getting to the remotest parts of your body.

Siaga supports clean blood, healthy blood sugar levels and the removal of toxins from the cells. This can help wounds to heal faster. Siaga also promotes oxygenation of the blood and increases availability of nutrients to the cells, which is the foundation of good health.

ShopFreeMart Vitalize helps improve sugar metabolism, energy, sleep, muscle strength and overall repair of damaged cells. It also helps improve libido. I was talking with one of our members recently who is 70 years old. His wife is 25 years younger than he is and he told me that she really loves our Vitalize product. I asked him to tell me more and he told me that she had not started taking Vitalize yet herself, but that his libido has gone through the roof, which makes her very happy. She now tells him, you are still 70 years old from the neck up, but now you are 45 years old from the neck down.

ShopFreeMart PureSilver can help keep bacteria levels under control that cause urinary tract infections and other infections as well. 

ShopFreeMart Immunize is pure bovine colostrum is also one of the best products to help restore the gut. It has over 700 natural nutrients that benefit all functions of the body. In fact all of the ShopFreeMart products have their place. Some of them you should not miss a day without taking them. Others may greatly improve some of your functions by taking them only 2-3 times a week.

So spend some time getting to know all of the products and some of the symptoms that may show up when they nutrients are lacking and then you will be able to take control of your own health and you may never need to see a doctor unless you have a serious accident or something like that.

Abscesses

Because an abscess is an open wound, it can expose the blood flow and the lymph system to possible bacterial contamination. It is very important to kill the bacteria in the wound.

ShopFreeMart PureSilver can be used as a mouth rinse for an abscess in the mouth. Hold 1-2 droppers full (one squeeze of the bulb) of PureSilver liquid in your mouth for at least six minutes, 2-3x daily. It can then be swallowed, providing an internal rinse as well.

You can also use PureSilver as a rinse for an abscess on the outside of your body. When you first cleanse the abscess, rinse it with PureSilver. If it requires a bandage, soak the gauze bandage in PureSilver before taping it into place.

For a very small abscess, you can simply wet the gauze on a Band-Aid with PureSilver and place it over the abscess. For a large abscess, cover the wound topically with PureSilver 3x or more times daily.

For a large closed abscess that has not ruptured or drained yet, it  is advisable to consult your family doctor because incision and drainage of the abscess may be necessary. Using ShopFreeMart Pure Silver Concentrate topically and orally  before and after draining the abcess will help to prevent any kind of infection. 

ShopFreeMart Siaga supports clean blood and the removal of toxins from the cells, which can aid in the healing of abscesses. Siaga also promotes Oxygenation of the blood and increases availability of nutrients to the cells, which is the foundation of all healing.

ShopFreeMart Activate can help reduce overgrowth of yeast associated with abscesses.

Acid / Alkaline

At the root of every disease is an acidic condition. Bacteria, Viruses, yeast, mold, fungus and cancer all thrive in an acid environment.

Several years ago I conducted a study in Salt Lake City where I tested the pH of over 2,000 Utahans. Only two had a pH of 7.0 or higher, which is considered healthy. Ninety percent ranged between 4.5 and 5.5, which is guaranteed they will have cancer or some other major disease if they don't change their lifestyle. Ten percent were borderline to being in the healthy range.

One 16 oz. Coca Cola poured into ten gallons of pH 7.0 water will drop the pH to 4.5. For each soft drink that you consume, you need to drink 32 glasses of pH 7.0 water in order to neutralize the effects of that one soft drink.

Many people drink no water at all, but instead live on "big" sodas from their favorite 7-eleven or junk food restaurant. At this rate, we will soon have to remove "health" from the dictionary because it will be a word that no longer exists.

Health care is something you get at home, if you choose to participate. Disease care is something you receive from your doctor and the word "cure" will get you kicked out of practice or perhaps even get you thrown in jail if you use it.

We live in a world turned upside down and if you are concerned about your health, you need to pay particular attention to your pH and which foods, drinks and chemicals create acid in your body.

Your gall bladder is the alkalizing organ of your body. You should make sure to keep this organ clean and healthy. Gall bladder operations can totally be prevented. ShopFreeMart Pure Gold is the best single supplement to help cleanse the liver and gall bladder and keep them healthy. (Also see Liver) If you have had your gall bladder removed, you will have to take extra measures to maintain alkalinity.

Change of eating habits is a must if you want to remain alkaline and healthy. (See Diet)

You may also want to check out Baking Soda as a way to combat acidity and drinking Alkaline Water can also help.

Acne

Acne attacks people of all ages, from infants to adults. Bacteria getting inside of a hair follicle or a sweat (sebaceous) gland can cause acne. Once the bacteria gets under the skin it will duplicate itself, dissolving healthy tissue in the process and leaving scars behind. To get rid of the acne, you must get rid of the bacteria.

To kill the bacteria, take 1-2 droppers of PureSilver 3x daily. Silver should also be applied topically two or more times daily.

You can expect to see reduction in the size and in the damage of the acne within 24 hours. Total improvement of the skin will take about four weeks - the amount of time necessary for new skin to grow from the bottom to the top layer.

A backed up colon is known to feed the bacteria causing acne. Keeping a clean colon is important to overall health. ShopFreeMart Immunize is the best known product for preventing bacteria from the colon getting into the blood stream, which is the cause of acne. Also,

Siaga supports detoxification at a cellular level and it also has nutrients known to support healthy, radiant skin. Use as recommended. Siaga supports beautiful skin and can help in the case of pimples. It also eliminates free radicals, and other pathogens that may be the cause of Acne. Regular use of Siaga can also strengthen the immune system, helping to ward off disease-causing microorganisms.

Adrenals

The ability to manage things like cancer and autoimmune disease depends on a delicate and complex relationship in the body which medicine doesn't really understand and therefore is failing to effectively deal with it.

Managing these diseases depends upon the health of the adrenal glands. Cortisol and Aldosterone are hormones secreted by the adrenal glands. Cortisol in particular, has an anti-inflammatory effect as well as an effect on the function of the immune system itself.

We know that stress leads to high cortisol, which when it is too high it actually damages and weakens the immune system. Long-term very stress leads to exhausted adrenal glands that results in too little cortisol. In this state, the immune system is not just damaged; it actually will cease to function properly at all as long as that state exists.

There will be high inflammation with very low effect. In this state, cancer can go from a small, contained unit, to an explosive disease. Indeed, some researchers believe that no cancer would ever get completely out of control if the adrenals were functioning normally. Low adrenals are not a "cause" of cancer, but when they are not functioning properly, cancer can get out of control.

Generally, cortisol gets lowest after extreme stress has mellowed out. Then, the effect of it "catches up" with the individual. If the person has no cancer existing, this will lead to other problems (such as infection or autoimmune disease) but where cancer is hanging around, an explosion of it may be the result.

This lends credence to New German Medicine that postulates all cancer follows some sort of painful loss, (stress) real or perceived, in the form of money, position or a loved one.

Naturally, a reasonable step, for anyone, is to keep the adrenals supported and to keep cortisol (and other adrenal hormones) within healthy ranges.

ShopFreeMart Immunize, Siaga and PureCopper support healthy adrenal glands.

The following herbal formula also really helps the adrenal glands along with the liver and thyroid gland.

3 parts Dr. Christopher's Vitalerbs (best to buy the pound of the bulk powder)

2 parts turmeric

1 part rosemary

1 part milk thistle seed

2 parts astragalus

½ part (or a little less) of licorice root (for long-term weak adrenal glands)

This is stirred up and then stirred into water each morning and night (four times per day for anyone with serious problems). I usually recommend 1-3 teaspoons per dose, ½ teaspoon for kids.

Age Spots

Age spots develop when the liver doesn't produce enough enzymes to clean out the toxins that are circulating through the blood stream. Certain toxins can be deposited in the fats underneath your skin, creating an age spot ½ usually a permanent effect like a tattoo.

Taking ShopFreeMart PureSilver and drinking ShopFreeMart Hydration Water mixture on a regular basis supports getting the liver working properly again, and getting the proper production of enzymes at the same time. Rubbing PureSilver and ShopFreeMart Hydration Water Concentrate on the age spot can help excrete that which has been stored under the skin. For the best benefit, apply silver topically four or more times daily and take 1-2 droppers of ShopFreeMart PureSilver 3x daily.

PureCopper and Siaga have antioxidant properties and nutrients that are known to support the liver function and help remove toxins that cause age spots and slow down the aging process. (Also See Liver Cleanse)

Age spots can also be an indication of lacking the mineral Selenium.

Allergies / Asthma / Respiratory

Allergic symptoms in children are a major clue that something is wrong with the child. Rather than covering up the problem using a drug, it is important to recognize that allergy symptoms are a warning that something in their diet or environment is causing them a problem.

Usually the offending agent is the foodstuff. This problem is greatly reduced in children who are breast-fed, although allergies still exist in some cases. In these cases it is usually the mother's diet which needs to be cleaned up. The 2 biggest culprits are dairy and gluten (a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, oats and spelt).

Usually removing these foods from the child's diet, and making sure the child is given enough omega-3 fats will eliminate the vast majority of allergies. Other supplements have also been well documented to reduce allergies in infants. Siaga is safe for people of all ages. It is best absorbed if held in the mouth for several minutes, but can be mixed with food or other liquids. Another classic here would be a good probiotic in addition to ShopFreeMart Immunize.

One home remedy states that flax seed oil on cottage cheese cures allergies and when combined with borage is even better. Borage seed oil contains a fatty acid called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). GLA is known to have anti-inflammatory effects. Be aware however that most cottage cheese is mostly Plaster of Paris. Use only Certified Organic cottage cheese.

A team of researchers from Finland found that children who developed allergies ate more margarine and less butter compared with children who did not develop allergies. Again make sure that your butter comes from grass fed cows and is organic.

This study is not the first to suggest that certain types of fatty acids may play a role in the onset of allergic diseases. Polyunsaturated fats like those in margarine promote the formation of prostaglandin E2, a substance which promotes inflammation and causes the immune system to release a protein which triggers allergic reactions. Remember that butter is a natural food, while margarine is one of the worst things you can eat.

If you suffer from food allergies, it is only by addressing the "whys" of your food allergies that you can hope to actually solve the problem. Repeated exposure to the same foods, especially in large quantities can be a factor. By rotating foods and watching closely to their reactions, you may start to get an indication of which foods are causing the allergies.

I recommend when juicing, that you rotate and vary the vegetables you use in your juicing program. Yet other factors also contribute to the number and severity of allergies. Let's examine some of them.

The most common cause of multiple food allergies, according to many allergies experts, is having a 'leaky gut' - increased intestinal permeability. Small holes can develop in the lining of the intestine, which allow large molecules of undigested or incompletely digested foods to enter the bloodstream.

There is nothing else that comes close to fixing problems with the gut like ShopFreeMart Immunize and ShopFreeMart Actvate. ShopFreeMart Siaga is also a great companion to these two products, not only for healing the gut, but also for strengthening the immune system.

The liver is the main organ inside the human body whose function is to process substances which are "foreign" to our body and to make them "friendly". If the quantity of undigested foods which enters the bloodstream is too great for the liver to clean up quickly, the immune system then recognizes these molecules as being foreign to the body and produces antibodies against them.

When the food is eaten again and again and passes into the bloodstream undigested or only partially digested, the antibodies bind with the food. These antibody-food complexes can travel through the bloodstream to any part of the body where they then cause problems.

There are many causes of 'leaky gut'. Babies for example are born with higher intestinal permeability than older children or adults. Therefore, ideally infants should consume only breast milk for the first several months of life and other foods should be introduced with caution.

If breast feeding is not possible, a completely hydrolyzed formula such as "Nutramigen" should be used because it is already broken down into simple sugars, free amino acids, and other very small units Cow's milk is highly allergenic and should not be given to babies. Neither should soy formula. Raw organic goat milk is very similar to human milk and may be the best substitute if available.

Internal factors in a patient's body can cause or contribute to a leaky gut. These include nutritional deficiencies, inflammatory bowel disease, poor digestion, and food allergies. There is a vicious cycle involved with these internal factors since the leaky gut either causes them or contributes to their severity.

ShopFreeMart Immunize is safe for babies, which not only helps to heal weaknesses in the intestinal wall, but also strenthens the immune system, which can also help to relieve many allergies.

Finally, unfriendly organisms present in the digestive tract can cause increased intestinal permeability. These infections can involve protozoan parasites, yeasts such as Candida albicans, bacteria which are conventionally considered "pathogens" such as Salmonella or an overgrowth of bacteria usually considered nonpathogenic, such as Klebsiella or Pseudomonas. Hence the importance of maintaining a healthy intestinal flora.

ShopFreeMart Immunize and ShopFreeMart Acivate are two of the best things you can take help heal a leaky gut and to help maintain a healthy intestinal flora.

Parasitic infestations are on the increase because of changes in our lifestyles which have occurred over the last few decades. International travel is now commonplace. If you are not a traveler, the world and its parasites will come to you, brought in by imported produce from countries where sanitation is sub-standard.

A common cause of bacterial or fungal problems in the intestine is often the repeated or long term use of antibiotics. Antibiotics kill both the bacteria you want them to kill and the 'friendly' bacteria in the intestine. This leaves these areas open to be colonized by unfriendly bacteria, yeast, and parasites.

Alcoholic beverages, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs - NSAIDs - (aspirin, ibuprofen, ketoprofen, naproxen, prescription arthritis medications, etc) cause increased intestinal permeability and can compound the problem of 'leaky gut' and contribute to food allergies.

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs - NSAIDs - are now being sold without a prescription and without much warning about their side effects. This is very unfortunate, as is the sometimes seemingly indiscriminate prescribing of these drugs. For anyone with the possibility of compromised intestinal health, even a single dose of a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug can increase intestinal permeability tremendously.

The Physician's Desk Reference warns about the possibility of gastrointestinal bleeding, ulceration, and perforation when using nonsteroidal inflammatory drugs, and reports that arthritis drugs can lead to the development of inflammatory bowel disease.

Because we may not absorb nutrients from foods to which we are allergic, and because these foods contribute to the irritation of our intestine and decrease absorption even further, the first thing to consider in planning your diet is that you do not eat foods to which you are allergic.

If you have multiple food allergies, the offending foods must be eliminated and all other foods should be eaten at intervals of 4 to 5 days or longer. This is known as a 'rotation' diet. Rotation diets are necessary for people with multiple allergies because if you have overt allergies to many foods, it is likely that you have slight, subclinical allergies to many other foods which you consider safe. Eating these foods on a rotated basis reduces your exposure to them and may help preserve your tolerance for them.

Many people with food allergies suffer from impaired digestion. Incomplete digestion of foods which then pass through a leaky gut into the bloodstream is a major contributing factor to the problem of food allergies. ShopFreeMart Immunize and ShopFreeMart Activate can help heal the leaky gut, which then prevents undigested foods from entering the bloodstream.

Dr. William Philpott, in his book "Victory Over Diabetes", recommends the rotation of digestive enzymes on a 4-day cycle. This can be accomplished by using pancreatin (from pork and beef), plant enzymes (from Aspergillus orazeae), bromelain (from pineapple), and papain (from papaya). Bromelain and papain are active in the digestion of protein only, but studies have shown them to be much less potent than pancreatin.

Vitamin C is a general anti-allergy vitamin. We experience allergic symptoms when an allergen-antibody complex causes mast cells to release histamine and other allergy mediating chemicals. Vitamin C helps to stabilize mast cells so they are less likely to release these substances.

If people with food allergies avoid harmful substances and address the factors at the root of their allergy problems, such as nutrition, digestion, intestinal health, Liver Cleansing and Colon Cleansing, their allergies can be overcome. It may take time, but good health is possible.

Black mold is a fungus or yeast that grows in wet areas of the home like showers or walls. The mold will release spores into the air. If these spores reach your lungs, they will produce asthma and chronic fatigue-like symptoms.

To remove the mold, mix one dropper of ShopFreeMart PureSilver per each ounce of water that you add to a spray bottle, then spray it on the mold and let it stand for 10 minutes before wiping it off. This will destroy the mold and likely prevent it from re-growing.

Fungus and mold grow in warm, moist, and sugared areas such as the intestines or vagina. Taking sugar out of your diet and using silver both topically and internally can treat these. Take 2-3 droppers of PureSilver 3x daily and apply it topically 3-4x daily, if needed. This dosage should be continued for at least two weeks longer than symptoms are present.

Using a nebulizer will reduce inflammation and open up the lungs, making it easier to breathe, perhaps better than any other thing. Doctors often prescribe drugs like Albuterol, but I have my own formula of things that I mix up as a nebulizing solution, which I personally prefer. See Nebulizer.

Regular use of ShopFreeMart Hydration Water, Siaga, Puredine and ShopFreeMart Immunize may help reduce symptoms associated with asthma and allergies.

New research provides evidence for a link between vitamin D insufficiency and asthma severity. Serum vitamin D levels in more than 600 children were inversely linked to several indicators of allergy and asthma severity.

While previous studies have suggested that vitamin D may affect how airway cells respond to treatment with inhaled steroids, this is the first study of vitamin D and disease severity in children with asthma.

Children with lower vitamin D levels were significantly more likely to have been hospitalized for asthma in the previous year, tended to have airways with increased hyperactivity and were likely to have used more inhaled corticosteroids, all signifying higher asthma severity. These children were also significantly more likely to have several markers of allergy, including dust-mite sensitivity.

Common asthma symptoms include:

Chest tightness

Shortness of breath

Wheezing

Coughing

Since asthma is caused by inflammation, the fact that vitamin D deficiency can aggravate the condition makes perfect sense in light of what we now know about vitamin D. As Dr. Robert Heaney explains in this Inner Circle Expert Interview, vitamin D can be a very powerful immune modulator.

And although this study may be the first to demonstrate an inverse association between circulating levels of vitamin D and markers of asthma severity, it's not the first study to show that vitamin D can benefit asthmatics.

In 2006, Australian researchers discovered that exposure to sunlight significantly reduced the development of asthma symptoms in mice.

In this latest study, 28 percent of the children with asthma had vitamin D levels of less than 30 ng/ml, which is clearly a deficiency state. Since that time we now know that the vitamin D made by the body due to exposure to natural sunlight is far better than any artificial vitamin D supplements.

They discovered that lower vitamin D levels were associated with increased IgE and eosinophils, which are allergy markers.

This may also offer an explanation for why it's so important to make sure your vitamin D levels are optimized during pregnancy, as infants whose mothers are vitamin D deficient have a higher risk of developing asthma.

One 2007 study published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, states:

"Vitamin D has been linked to immune system and lung development in utero, and our epidemiologic studies show that higher vitamin D intake by pregnant mothers reduces asthma risk by as much as 40 percent in children 3 to 5 years old.

½ Providing adequate vitamin D supplementation in pregnancy may lead to significant decreases in asthma incidence in young children."

And, said Dr. Celedón in the article above:

"This study also provides epidemiological support for a growing body of in vitro evidence that vitamin D insufficiency may worsen asthma severity, and we suspect that giving vitamin D supplements to asthma patients who are deficient may help with their asthma control."

So not only can your vitamin D status during pregnancy influence the development of asthma in your child in the first place, but if your child is deficient as well, it may aggravate his or her asthma symptoms.

In fact, the children with higher vitamin D levels had a lower risk of being hospitalized for any cause, and needed fewer anti-inflammatory medications. This too correlates to another recent meta-analysis that showed higher vitamin D levels significantly reduce mortality from all causes.

Optimize Your Vitamin D Levels to Treat Asthma

Currently, the recommended daily allowance is a mere 400 units a day, which is about one tenth of what most people need for optimal health. You really need to make sure you're getting therapeutic levels and ideally, you'll want to obtain your vitamin D from exposing a significant amount of your skin (not just your hands and face) to appropriate amounts of sunlight outside.

Also be aware that exposing your skin to sun behind a window, whether in your home, office, or car will actually lower your vitamin D, as the UVB is filtered out and the UVA will lower your vitamin D.

You can tell you've had enough, from either the sun or a safe tanning bed, when your skin turns the very lightest shade of pink.

Once you reach that shade of pink, your body is not going to produce any more vitamin D. In fact, you're only going to cause damage to your skin if you continue your exposure past that point.

The best time to expose yourself to the sun is early in the morning when the rays are more at an angle and not so direct.

You can actually produce up to 20,000 units of vitamin D per day through this kind of exposure. However, you don't need to be concerned with how much you're producing, as your skin has a feedback loop that will shut down the production of vitamin D past a certain point.

The problem today is that many people are spending nearly all of their time indoors during the daylight hours.

And bear in mind that when you take an oral vitamin D supplement, the feedback loop does not exist so you need to be far more careful, as overdosing can be just as bad as being severely deficient. So, if you take oral supplements, make sure you monitor your blood with an accurate test. In the U.S., I recommend using the gold standard Diasorin test for checking vitamin D levels. Labcorp is a possible source for that test.

If you are not getting daily exposure to the sun, then oral supplements of vitamin D should be considered necessary for just about everyone. If you get your levels to about 60 ng/ml, there's a strong likelihood you may not experience the symptoms of asthma anymore.

Safely and effectively treating your asthma is not a complicated affair.

Even More Strategies to Safely and Effectively Treat Your Asthma:

In addition to making sure your vitamin D levels are optimized, here are several additional strategies that can help treat the root of your problem, as well as a few that can offer safe symptom relief.

Purify your indoor air. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air is up to five times more polluted than outdoor air, on average, so considering the fact that you spend about 90 percent of your life indoors, you may want to consider installing a good air purifier that is easy, safe, cost-effective, and leaves behind no dangerous chemical residues (which are often just as bad as the substances you're trying to clean away.)

I personally use one that filters the air through water. It looks like a small fish bowl, with a lid on top with a small motor that spins a small cone that is submerged in the water in the lower 1/4 of the bowl.

Anyone suffering allergies should avoid antibacterial soaps. In the first place they are dangerous and cause many skin problems. Then, there is a tendency in our modern culture to be obsessive about cleanliness, especially in children. However, this may not be as healthy as initially thought. It appears that being exposed to common bacterial and viral infections as a child can be instrumental in providing the stimulus to your immune system to prevent asthma naturally.

As an alternative to the dangerous chemical soaps, cleaners, detergents and shampoos, I suggest that you try ShopFreeMart NVIRO 360 All Purpose Cleaner and Shave and Shower Gel. These two bottles will replace every cleaning product imaginable and at the same time you will protect your health and help save the environment.

Using 1-2 caps full of NVIRO Shave and Shower Gel in a hot bath for approximately 30 minutes may pull a surprising amount of toxins out of your skin that could be aggrivating any allergic condition.

Get regular exercise and the best place to begin is with my Breathing Exercises. Studies have shown that asthmatics who exercise regularly tend to show improvement in:

Maximum ventilation

Maximal oxygen uptake

Work capacity, and

Maximum heart rate

Increase your intake of animal-based omega 3 fats. I can't emphasize enough the importance of getting sufficient amounts of high quality animal-based omega 3 fats in your diet.

I also strongly believe that we all need plant-based omega 3 fats and a good source for these are hemp seed or flax seed. However, many people do not possess the metabolic ability to rapidly convert the ALA in these plants to the higher order fats DHA and EPA, which are potent anti-inflammatories, that is the reason I suggest getting some omega 3 from the animal kingdom.

Fish oils, which were recently a crave for many health enthusiasts are now being show to be an inferior source of omega 3 oils when put in capsule form.

Avoid all commercial milk products. They are notorious for making asthma worse. If you consume milk at all, use only raw milk products from grass-fed cows, but even then be careful and take note of whether or not the raw milk is making your asthma better or worse.

Eat foods rich in vitamin E. Much like vitamin D, higher vitamin E intake has also been associated with lower serum IgE concentrations and a lower frequency of allergensensitization.

Try some Butterbur (Petasites hybridus). This perennial shrub has been used since ancient times to treat a variety of conditions. As far back as the 17th century, butterbur was used to treat coughs, asthma, and skin wounds. Researchers have since identified the compounds in butterbur that help reduce symptoms in asthma by inhibiting leukotrienes and histamines, which are responsible for symptom aggravation in asthma.

In one study, 40% of the patients who taking a butterbur root extract were able to reduce their intake of traditional asthma medications.

Build your immune system with regular use of ShopFreeMart Immunize and ShopFreeMart Siaga. A strong immune system is the best defense against the symptoms associated with Asthma.

Halotherapy for Asthma: Documentation from Ocean Plasma, an organization whose mission is to reeducate the public about the importance of halotherapy, states:

The therapeutic importance of Sodium Chloride is well known. It was already employed with success by Amédé Latour (1830-1857) with pulmonary tuberculosis, by Martin Solon (1842) and by Bouchardat (1851) with diabetes, by Plouvier (1847) with toxemia, iron deficiency and anemia etc., by Piorry (1850), Gintrac (1850), Brugs (1851), Larière (1851), Villemin (1854), Hutchinson (1854), Moroschkin (1856), Piogh (1870) with intermittent fever, and was, and still is, heavily used by all modern medical facilities with a quotable quote intra-venous or subcutaneous injections for the most varied afflictions.

Multitudes of people have utilized salt therapy (also known as "halotherapy") in one way or another throughout past decades to the present. Some take refuge breathing in the salty, ocean air at the seaside, others go directly to the Dead Sea while still others have journeyed to the famous salt mines in Poland, Austria and Romania.

This remedy was and still is sought after because of the antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal qualities of the salty cave air. Its salty microclimate calms, cleanses and revives the cells of the respiratory system. Thousands of sojourners have experienced relief from respiratory diseases strictly by inhaling the salty cave air.

It started in the 19th century when a Polish physician noted that salt miners seldom suffered from respiratory ailments. In these mines, the symptoms of inflammatory diseases such as asthma and allergic rhinitis have more often than not been relieved, if not completely eradicated.

We know today that salt has anti-inflammatory effects and that inhaled salt provides relief from respiratory symptoms. Halotherapy (drawing air through a salt pipe filled with rock salt) is commonplace today and may provide many of the same benefits.

The main effect of salt on the bronchial system is to stimulate secretion, loosen and help eliminate viscous secretions, inhibit inflammation, reduce irritation causing cough, clean the mucous membrane and contract and dilate the respiratory ducts.

If you have asthma, you may think you are doomed to a life of steroids and ventolin inhalers, but there are alternative treatments for asthma and other respiratory conditions. Salt therapy, officially known as halotherapy, has been shown to be beneficial in asthma, bronchitis and even cystic fibrosis. Saltpipes, an alternative type of inhaler, can be used in the alleviation of asthma and are suitable for both adults and children.

Puff on a Pipe to Help Asthma:

Rock salt has been used for centuries around the world to ease respiratory discomfort. A trial involving asthmatic and allergy patients and those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) showed the salt pipe improved symptoms in more than half of them.

In absence of a salt pipe, fill a jar with rock salt and insert a tube (preferably larger than a straw) and fill the lungs to capacity by breathing in normally through the tube.

The salt I recommend is "real salt" or "Himalayan salt" available from your local health food store or from www.realsalt.com.

Rock salt, could offer new hope for millions of people who suffer from asthma. Puffing on the saltpipe draws tiny particles of salt into the lungs, which manufacturers claim boosts natural cleansing processes. Trials in Budapest found three out of four patients improved after using the device for 15 minutes a day.

The effect of a dry salt inhaler in adults with COPD:

The fascinating results of this study, originally published in Pneumologia 2007 Jul-Sep; 56(3):124-7 concludes: "35 patients were given dry salt inhalers and were asked to use them up to 30 minutes per day. Spirometry tests and six minute walk tests were performed initially and after one, two and three months. We found a statistically significant improvement in the six minute walk test values. Dry salt inhaler therapy may prove to be a useful adjuvant therapy in COPD as far as effort tolerance and quality of life are concerned."

The saltpipe used in ambulant medical attendance:

The Csepel Hospital Outpatients Department in Budapest recommends the use of the saltpipe during the ambulant medical attendance of the patients." We offer it to them with quite good results. We recommend the saltpipe in our outpatient health care because the results are very good as it acts as a kind of a mobile cave therapy. The crystals contained in it promote the dissolution of accumulated matter and make breathing easier. Children can start using it from an age when they can be taught how to breathe the air through the pipe containing the salt crystals. As a result of its efficiency it is recommended for those who suffer from chronic respiratory disorders, allergies and for smokers and anyone who suffers from irritating respiratory problems."

"The experiences of the patients show that the saltpipe helps to dissolve sediments, helps in the process of discharge and in so doing, eases their breathing. As a doctor, I found the Saltpipe a very effective, complementary tool in the therapy of patients with respiratory illnesses." Dr. Valria Burzuk

Effect of dry sodium chloride aerosol on the respiratory tract of tobacco smokers:

"The aim was to study influence of dry sodium chloride aerosol (DSCA) on the respiratory tract of tobacco smokers. By the end of inhalation course, 88% of smokers reported easier and/or decreased cough, changes in the character of sputum, which became lighter and clearer. DSCA relieves the main symptoms (cough and sputum), improves local defense mechanisms and resistance of mucous membranes of tobacco smokers owing to decreased colonization activity of pathogenic microgerm."

A. V. Chervinskaya (St. Petersburg, Russian Federation) - 2006

A novel and effective low-cost treatment for cystic fibrosis:

"The salt therapy treatment uses hypertonic saline solution inhaled through a nebulizer. Administered twice daily over an extended period, the therapy reduces the recurring complications of the disease, improving the quality and duration of life. The outcome of the trial was recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Reporting on the trial Mark said, "The results of our trial were revolutionary. We saw a sustained improvement in lung function, a major reduction in the number of acute lung flare-ups, a reduced need for antibiotics to treat the flare-ups, and fewer days off school or work due to illness." Associate Professor Peter Bye from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Sydney. Cystic Fibrosis in Australia 16/Aug/2006

Inhaling salt mist helps cystic fibrosis:

In the study the "effect of salt therapy (HT) was evaluated in 124 patients with various types of respiratory diseases. In all of the patients, the disease was in the stage of a prolonged exacerbation. The clinical state of 85% of the patients with mild and moderate bronchial asthma (BA), 75 % with severe BA, 98% with chronic bronchitis, bronchiectasis and cystic fibrosis improved after HT. The patients were examined 6 and 12 months after the first HT course. No aggravations of the disease were seen from the 3d to the12th month. The average duration of the remission was 7.6-0.9 m. Most of the patients (60%) used no medication and sought no medical advice." Alina V. Chervinskaya and Nora A. Zilber, Journal of Aerosol Medicine, 1995

Halotherapy (HT) has been shown in clinical trials of steadily increasing rigor to confer significant benefits in the treatment of asthma and chronic bronchitis. The failure of Western medical researchers to investigate it and of Western respiratory specialists to use it stems from various causes including unfamiliarity with the Russian-language literature, narrow focus on drugs, and general medical conservatism HT is much cheaper than competing drugs. It has minimal side effects. There are no reports of interactions with drugs or of the development of microbial resistance to HT. And its close-to-nature character appeals to patients. HT's ability to perform as a mainline or adjuvant therapy in virtually all respiratory diseases makes it especially valuable. It also possesses untapped potential as a source of general prophylaxis and invigoration for healthy people." Scientia Press Report, Kenneth J. Dillon, Close-to-Nature Medicine, Washington, D.C. 2003.

Speleotherapy, (salt mines or caves) is an accepted but not widely known therapeutic measure in the treatment of chronic obstructive airway diseases. This study summarizes the therapeutic experiences of more than 4000 patients who were treated in a 10-year period in a hospital-cave complex in Tapolca, Hungary. A sharp and long-lasting clinical improvement and a significant recovery from airway obstruction could be observed in the overwhelming majority of patients. It is established that the microclimate of some caves can beneficially affect these disorders, but the cave should be considered as an optimal environment for complex respiratory rehabilitation. World Pediatric Congress in Jerusalem in July 1997.

"Wieliczka, which is 15 kilometers (nine miles) from Krakow has been mined for salt non-stop since the Middle Ages. For 500 euros (690 dollars) which is often covered by health insurance, asthmatic and allergy patients can spend 14 days deep in the mine's microclimate, breathing the therapeutic air. The high levels of humidity and sodium chloride in the mine also help speed the regeneration of the patient's mucous membranes, said lung specialist Marta Rzepecka. The treatment is effective in 90 percent of cases, she added. "We also see an improvement in the overall functioning of the respiratory system," said physiotherapist Dorota Wodnicka. "They have less feeling of asphyxiation. The children take fewer antibiotics and they have fewer symptoms," she said. Russian Liliana Prishchepa said she had brought her granddaughter from Moscow to Wieliczka on the advice of a friend from Ukraine who was treated here. "Her problems disappeared after just two visits," said Prishchepa. Salt of the Earth Underground Medical Center, Elise Menand AFP 22 July 2007

Salt cave that treats asthma:

"I am an asthmatic and went for speleotherapy" to "Troilus mine, at Tirgu Ocna near Slanic Moldova, Romania. Over 5000 people were treated in this mine last year alone. The Romanians are amazed that 'salinas' are not available in Britain. Although my bronchitis, sinusitis and asthma had not cleared on my arrival home, everything cleared up and two month later and I was able to dance at our daughter's wedding. The literature points out that 'speleo-reaction' occurs in most people, they appear to get worse before they get better." Sylvia P. Beamon, MA.  1997

"A "speleotherapy" air-conditioning unit rumbled away, pumping salt particles into the atmosphere as I dozed. Three-quarters of an hour in its presence is "equal to three days at sea", apparently, thanks to the iodine, bromine, magnesium, potassium and other minerals said to have antibacterial and antiviral properties. Although the technology is less than 10 years old, it is inspired by 19th-century findings that Polish salt miners had fewer pulmonary problems than other people. Then, in the 1990s post-communist era, scientists in Poland started to explore the possibility of recreating similar micro climates above ground, which is when they came up with these salt rock panels, the backlighting and, most importantly, the air conditioning. Salt spas have taken central Europe by storm; there are now 200 in Poland alone" A 45-minute session costs £15. Victoria Finlay, Telegraph, 17 Sep 2007

Deficiency of salt in the diet may also be a cause of respiratory symptoms. Regular table salt should be avoided however. The salt I recommend is "real salt" or "Himalayan salt" available from your local health food store or from www.realsalt.com.

Alzheimer's

Dementia is a loss of brain function that occurs with certain diseases. It affects memory, thinking, language, judgment, and behavior. Alzheimer's disease (AD) is one form of dementia that gradually gets worse over time.

It is caused by a mineral deficiency and toxic overload in the brain, especially heavy metals like Aluminum and Mercury. Toxins are acidic, which provide a fertile medium for the rapid growth of yeast colonies.

Yeast can also cause fruits and sugars to ferment in the intestines creating a neurotoxin and low dose alcohol toxicity, which both affect normal brain function. Yeast can also move from the intestines and go directly into the brain. This can explain much of the mental fog and mental exhaustion.

By cleansing yeast out of the system, most AD patients can control some of their symptoms. A systemic infection of yeast or candida is always due to leaky gut syndrome. There is nothing else that comes close to fixing problems with the gut like ShopFreeMart Immunize and ShopFreeMart Actvate. ShopFreeMart Siaga is also a great companion to these two products, not only for healing the gut, but also for strengthening the immune system.

Immunize seals up the tiny perforations in the gut that allow candida to migrate from the colon into the bloodstream. Without stopping the source of the problem, any other remedies are only a bandaid to the problem. Second line of defense is ShopFreeMart Activate. Activate is one of the best things you can take to wipe out candida.

Many people have successfully killed the yeast and fungus that are causing pain throughout the body by taking 1-2 droppers of ShopFreeMart PureSilver 3x daily.

PureSilver can also be diluted using purified water to inject into the rectum or vagina using a syringe or douche bottle. Use 1-3 droppers of ShopFreeMart PureSilver (depending upon the severity of the infection) to each oz. of water before injecting.

When large numbers of yeast colonies are killed rapidly, the cleanse may be accompanied by one to three weeks of flu-like symptoms until the dead yeast is washed out of the body.

Drinking plenty of purified water with ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops concentrate added to it can help remove toxins that are being released as a result of any kind of detoxification program.

Acidophilus supports a healthy intestinal flora, which is an important part of the body's defense against the overgrowth of yeast and fungus. ShopFreeMart PureCopper, Siaga and D-Cal have anti-fungal properties, which in turn helps control the growth of yeast. ShopFreeMart Hydration Water, Immunize and PureMag support proper pH by neutralizing acid in the body and should be a daily regimen for anyone suffering from pain.

A major cause of Dementia may be from fluoride poisoning due to drinking fluoridated water and using fluoride toothpaste and dental treatments. (See Fluoride)

Fluoride makes holes in the brain similar to Swiss cheese and should be avoided at all costs, and more especially from anyone who is losing brain function.

ShopFreeMart D-Cal should be used to help pull existing fluroide out of the body as the mineral boron is known to remove fluoride deposits and D-Cal is the boron supplement that I use and recommend. D-Cal is also anti-fungal, which may provide additional benefits for anyone suffering from Dementia.

Siaga also has anti-fungal properties and the ability to help support proper pH in the body, a healthy balance of good bacteria and intestinal flora, all of which are major factors in preventing an onslaught of yeast and fungus.

One causative factor may be protein carbonylation, in which oxygen radicals attack the carbon-hydrogen bonds in proteins. This process has been implicated as a cause for many age-related diseases, such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, chronic renal failure, adult-onset Diabetes and also Cancer. ShopFreeMart Hydration Water can help remove excess protein from the body and thus take a huge load off of the kidneys.

Antioxidants continually combat free radicals and without a good supply of the best antioxidants your biological defense systems eventually begin to suffer from oxidative damage and can't function as effectively. Your state of health declines as a result, and "age-related ailments" like Alzheimer's set in.

Siaga helps the body produce considerable amounts of glutathione, which is the most powerful antioxidant known to man, which may neutralize "oxygen radicals" before they can attack the carbon-hydrogen bonds in proteins, which is one of the causes of AD.

Siaga is antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-aging. The minerals in Siaga play an active role in the production of stem cells, human growth hormone, endorphins, super-oxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione, all of which may have a beneficial effect in AD patients.

ShopFreeMart PureCopper and PureGold may help eliminate toxins and heavy metals like Aluminum and Mercury, which may be disrupting nerve communicaton.

Scientists have found that information-carrying radio waves transmitted by cell phones and other wireless devices can also trigger Alzheimer's disease. The ShopFreeMart Anti-Radiation Stickers and Nano Cards have been demonstrated to modulate the effects of this radiation.

In 2007, the Bioinitiative Working Group released a 650-page report citing more than 2,000 studies that detail the toxic effects of EMFs from all sources. Chronic exposure to even low-level radiation (like that from cell phones), can cause a variety of cancers, impair immunity, and contribute to Alzheimer's disease and dementia, heart disease, and many other ailments. See EMF.

More than a century after Thomas Edison switched on his first light bulb, the health consequences of that continual overlap are just now beginning to be documented. New scientific evidence is saying that nearly all the twentieth century human plagues can be tied to some aspect of our use of electricity, including leukemia in children, brain tumors, melanoma, asthma, cardiovascular disease, immune system dysfunction, hormone disturbance, brittle diabetes, sleep disorders, headaches, AD and ADHD.

Siaga may help remove harmful radiation from the body. Care should also be taken to remove the AD patient from as many sources of radiation as possible.

ShopFreeMart Pure Gold is known for its ability to help support mental alertness, mental clarity and memory. I recommend this product for anyone suffering from AD.

Poor circulation may also be a factor in AD. Vertebrobasilar Circulatory Disorder occurs when blood does not properly flow to the back of the brain. Symptoms include having trouble walking or keeping balance, not being able to swallow easily, double vision, headaches and slurred speech. ShopFreeMart PureCopper, PureMag, PureGold and Siaga all help to improve circulation and wearing a Nano Card in each shoe often helps with balance and with circulation, due to the increased presence of negative ions which they produce. (See Circulation)

Aspartame is one of the major causes of Alzheimer's and should be avoided at all costs. See Aspartame and also see Dementia.

ShopFreeMart PureMag and D-Cal and high doses of vitamin C can help with Alzheimer's, especially if it is a result of calcification in the brain. PureGold may also improve brain function as well.

Anemia

Anemia also spelled anæmia, (meaning lack of blood) is a decrease in the normal number of red blood cells (RBCs) or low level of hemoglobin in the blood. Anemia is the most common disorder of the blood. There are some 400 types of anemia, produced by a variety of underlying causes.

The cause of anemia can be as simple as a deficiency of the mineral Copper. Copper is a constituent of every red blood cell and is often a missing element in today's diet. ShopFreeMart Pure Copper should be considered in every case of anemia.

Because hemoglobin inside the RBCs normally carries oxygen from the lungs to the tissues, anemia leads to hypoxia (lack of oxygen) in organs. Since all human cells depend on oxygen for survival, varying degrees of anemia can have a wide range of symptoms.

The three main classes of anemia include excessive blood loss such as a hemorrhage, excessive blood cell destruction and deficient red blood cell production.

Anemia goes undiagnosed in many people, and symptoms can be minor or vague. The signs and symptoms can be related to the anemia itself, or the underlying cause.

Most commonly, people with anemia report a feeling of weakness, or fatigue and poor concentration. They may also report shortness of breath on exertion. In very severe anemia, the body may compensate for the lack of oxygen by increasing cardiac output. The patient may have symptoms such as palpitations, angina and symptoms of heart failure.

Symptoms may include:

Chest pain

Dizziness or light-headedness (especially when standing up or with activity)

Shortness of breath (especially during exercise)

Fatigue or lack of energy

Problems thinking or concentrating

Headaches

Constipation

Tingling

Pale skin

Jaundice

Rapid heart rate

Heart murmur

Bone deformities

Leg ulcers

In severe anemia, there may be signs of Pica, which is the consumption of non-food based items such as dirt, paper, wax, grass, ice, and hair. This may in turn be a symptom of copper deficiency, although it can occur in those who have normal levels of hemoglobin.

Chronic anemia may result in behavioral disturbances in children as a direct result of impaired neurological development in infants, and reduced scholastic performance in children of school age.

Restless legs syndrome is more common in those with copper deficiency anemia. ShopFreeMart PureCopper is the brand of copper that I recommend. Restless legs can also be a symptom of magnesium deficiency. Taking ShopFreeMart PureMag rubbed topically upon the legs and taking PureMag under the tongue followed by a large glass of distilled water treated with ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops Concentrate, may quickly relieve symptoms.

Less common symptoms may include swelling of the legs or arms, chronic heartburn, vague bruises, vomiting, increased sweating, and blood in stool. Swelling, bruises and blood in the stool can all be symptoms of copper deficiency.

Other causes of anemia are a deficiency of the water-soluble vitamins B12 and folate, iron poisoning and or a deficiency of copper. ShopFreeMart Vitalize is a good source of ME-B12, which I believe to be the purest and best form of vitamin B12 available.

While many parts of the body help make red blood cells, most of the work is done in the bone marrow. Bone marrow is the soft tissue in the center of bones that helps form blood cells. ShopFreeMart PureCopper aids the bone marrow in forming new blood cells.

Kidney disease includes conditions that decrease their ability to remove toxins and keep you healthy. Wastes can build up to high levels in your blood, causing the overgrowth of bacteria and if not treated, can cause anemia. Persons with anemia should consider strengthening the kidneys. ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops helps the body metabolize proteins, removing a big burden from the kidneys. (See Kidneys)

A hormone called erythropoietin made in your kidneys, signals your bone marrow to make more red blood cells. Healthy red blood cells live between 90 and 120 days.

Hemoglobin is the oxygen-carrying protein inside red blood cells. It gives red blood cells their red color. People with anemia do not have enough hemoglobin.

Possible causes of anemia include:

Certain medications

Chronic diseases such as cancer, ulcerative colitis, or rheumatoid arthritis

Some forms of anemia, such as thalassemia, can be inherited

Kidney failure

Blood loss (for example, from heavy menstrual periods or stomach ulcers)

Poor diet

Pregnancy

Problems with bone marrow such as lymphoma, leukemia, or multiple myeloma

Immune problems that cause the destruction of blood cells (hemolytic anemia)

Surgery to the stomach or intestines reducing copper, vitamin B12 and folate (folic acid)

Underactive thyroid due to lack of iodine and or copper - too little thyroid hormone

Testosterone deficiency (which may be helped by ShopFreeMart D-Cal and Vitalize.

Copper deficiency

Severe anemia can cause low oxygen levels in vital organs such as the heart, and can lead to a heart attack.

Treatment should be directed at the cause of the anemia, which is generally iron poisoning and copper deficiency.

Supplementing with ShopFreeMart PureCopper and Siaga is what I recommend for anemia.

Green vegetables, asparagus, bananas, melons and lemons are good sources of folate. (If you eat spinach, it must be organic and you must eat it raw. Cooked spinach contains oxalate which binds with iron and calcium, removing them from your body).

The therapeutic importance of Sodium Chloride (salt) is also well known. Plouvier (1847) successfully employed salt in the treatment of toxemia and anemia. (See Salt)

Some fairly compelling evidence supporting the destructive effects of microwaves comes from a highly cited study by a Swiss food scientist named Hans Hertel. Dr. Hertel was the first scientist to study the effects of microwaved foods on the blood and physiology of human beings.

His small study, coauthored by Dr. Bernard Blanc of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and the University Institute for Biochemistry, revealed the degenerative forces produced by microwave ovens on the foods they cooked.

Dr. Hertel concluded that microwave cooking changed the nutrients in the food, and that changes took place in the blood that could cause negative health effects, including decreased hemoglobin levels, which could indicate anemia.

Eating food heated in a microwave should be avoided.

Angels

This was written by a Metro Denver Hospice Physician:

I was driving home from a meeting this evening about 5, stuck in traffic on Colorado Blvd., and the car started to choke and splutter and die - I barely managed to coast, cursing, into a gas station, glad only that I would not be blocking traffic and would have a somewhat warm spot to wait for the tow truck. It wouldn't even turn over. Before I could make the call, I saw a woman walking out of the "quickie mart" building and it looked like she slipped on some ice and fell into a Gas pump, so I got out to see if she was okay

When I got there, it looked more like she had been overcome by sobs than that she had fallen; she was a young woman who looked really haggard with dark circles under her eyes. She dropped something as I helped her up, and I picked it up to give it to her. It was a nickel.

At that moment, everything came into focus for me: the crying woman, the ancient Suburban crammed full of stuff with 3 kids in the back (1 in a car seat), and the gas pump reading $4.95.

I asked her if she was okay and if she needed help, and she just kept saying "don't want my kids to see me crying," so we stood on the other side of the pump from her car. She said she was driving to California and that things were very hard for her right now. So I asked, "And you were praying?" That made her back away from me a little, but I assured her I was not a crazy person and said, "He heard you, and He sent me."

I took out my card and swiped it through the card reader on the pump so she could fill up her car completely, and while it was fueling, walked to the next door McDonald's and bought 2 big bags of food, some gift certificates for more, and a big cup of coffee. She gave the food to the kids in the car, who attacked it like wolves, and we stood by the pump eating fries and talking a little.

She told me her name, and that she lived in Kansas City. Her boyfriend left 2 months ago and she had not been able to make ends meet. She knew she wouldn't have money to pay rent Jan 1, and finally in desperation had finally called her parents, with whom she had not spoken in about 5 years. They live in California and said she could come live with them and try to get on her feet there.

So she packed up everything she owned in the car. She told the kids they were going to California for Christmas, but not that they were going to live there.

I gave her my gloves, a little hug and said a quick prayer with her for safety on the road. As I was walking over to my car, she said, "So, are you like an angel or something?"

This definitely made me cry. I said, "Sweetie, at this time of year angels are really busy, so sometimes God uses regular people."

It was so incredible to be a part of someone else's miracle. And of course, you guessed it, when I got in my car it started right away and got me home with no problem. I'll put it in the shop tomorrow to check, but I suspect the mechanic won't find anything wrong.

Psalms 55:22 "Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee. He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved."

Sometimes the angels fly close enough to you that you can hear the flutter of their wings.

Ant and the Contact Lens: a true story

Brenda was almost halfway to the top of the tremendous granite cliff. She was standing on a ledge where she was taking a breather during this, her first rock climb. As she rested there, the safety rope snapped against her eye and knocked out her contact lens. 'Great', she thought. 'Here I am on a rock ledge, hundreds of feet from the bottom and hundreds of feet to the top of this cliff, and now my sight is blurry.'

She looked and looked, hoping that somehow it had landed on the ledge. But it just wasn't there. She felt the panic rising in her, so she began praying. She prayed for calm, and she prayed that she may find her contact lens.

When she got to the top, a friend examined her eye and her clothing for the lens, but it was not to be found. Although she was calm now that she was at the top, she was saddened because she could not clearly see across the range of mountains. She thought of the bible verse 'The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth.'

She thought, 'Lord, You can see all these mountains. You know every stone and leaf, and You know exactly where my contact lens is. Please help me.'

Later, when they had hiked down the trail to the bottom of the cliff they met another party of climbers just starting up the face of the cliff. One of them shouted out, "Hey, you guys! Anybody lose a contact lens?"

Well, that would be startling enough, but you know why the climber saw it? An ant was moving slowly across a twig on the face of the rock, carrying it!

The story doesn't end there. Brenda's father is a cartoonist. When she told him the incredible story of the ant, the prayer and the contact lens, he drew a cartoon of an ant lugging that contact lens with the caption, "Lord, I don't know why You want me to carry this thing. I can't eat it and it's awfully heavy. But if this is what You want me to do, I'll carry it for You."

It would do all of us good to ask, "God, what will You have me do?" And even when the load seems heavy, just remember, "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me." (Phil. 4:13)

Ant Repellant

Add one drop of Peppermint Oil to each of several cotton balls and place them in strategic locations around your home.

Ants don't like salt. Sprinkle salt along ant trails, on ant hills, along walls and entrances of your home. I have done this personally and seen colonies of ants find a new home.

Anti-Aging

Aging is caused by free radicals trashing covalent bonds causing an imbalance in the electrons that make up the atoms of our cells.

ShopFreeMart Siaga is a natural antioxidant that can help prevent the ravaging effects of free radicals in the body. The plant-based minerals found in Siaga are known to restore electro-chemical balance to cells and increase the production of stem cells for tissue repair, allowing the body to repair damaged cells including skin and joints, thereby increasing flexibility of the joints and the youthful appearance of the skin.

I was once told by a NASA scientist that gold mineral in the body helps repair the codons in the DNA of all of our cells including bone, cartilage, muscles, skin, organs brain and nerves. I can't support this other than I have had scars go away after using ShopFreeMart PureGold. DNA contains the blueprint for the entire organ, which means if DNA can be repaired, organs can be replaced over time as long as there is one living cell within the organ. This means that gold could be considered reverse aging in addition to being anti-aging.

Since time immemorial, man has searched for the Fountain of Youth. Nothing has changed in that regard; only the methods of inquiry and discovery have progressed, producing some of the most outlandish sci-fi scenarios imaginable.

Personally, I am one to remain in alignment with the natural order of things - I don't even want to eat a piece of genetically modified corn. But the technology and science enthusiast in me can't help but be intrigued by the ideas and radical advances in the field of extreme life extension.

The Free-Radical Theory:

The most widely accepted idea for life extension is the free-radical theory. According to this theory, we begin to "self-destruct" as we age. Our DNA becomes damaged beyond our body's ability to repair and we eventually accumulate enough damage that can't support life, and we die.

The main agents of this destruction are oxygen free radicals; aggressive chemical compounds in the environment as well as those created as a byproduct of your natural metabolism. Over a lifetime, this progressive damage accumulates to the point where your body's basic biochemical processes fail.

One of the most destructive processes is protein carbonylation, in which oxygen radicals attack the carbon-hydrogen bonds in proteins. This process has been implicated as a cause for many age-related diseases, such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, chronic renal failure, adult-onset Diabetes and also Cancer.

Antioxidants continually combat free radicals and without a good supply of the best antioxidants your biological defense systems eventually begin to suffer from oxidative damage and can't function as effectively. Your state of health declines as a result, and "age-related ailments" set in.

Siaga is antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-aging. The minerals in Siaga may play an active role in lengthening telemeres, production of stem cells, human growth hormone, DHEA, SOD, endorphins, and glutathione, which in turn supports a strong immune system and disease prevention. Siaga is also known for its antiviral benefits and ability to support a strong immune system, which is important for preventing and fighting viral infections.

The nutrients found in Siaga also helps protect you from the free radicals that destroy cells and cause the body to age, which is why they are such an important part of your daily health regimen.

Siaga supports beautiful skin and can help reverse signs of aging and wrinkling of skin by increasing super oxide dismutase (SOD) activity for DNA repair. Siaga also helps eliminate other pathogens, which are known to cause premature aging. Regular use of Siaga can also strengthen the immune system, helping to ward off disease-causing microorganisms.

Anti-Bacterial

When found on the skin, in the blood stream, in the intestines, or in the hair, bacteria cause countless diseases. When serious diseases are examined in the lab, every single one is found to be associated with the presence of pleomorphic bacteria or mold. These damage the immune function that normally protects the cell from foreign invaders. When bacteria or mold invade a cell, reducing immune protection, they allow toxins and contagions to enter the cell and damage the DNA, resulting in many serious diseases. Pure Silver starts killing bacteria in as little as fifteen seconds. If you put Pure Silver directly in contact with bacteria, the bacteria will usually be totally destroyed within six minutes. Some bacteria may take longer but all bacteria can be destroyed with regular use of Pure Silver.

To stop disease-causing bacteria in its tracks, take 1-2 droppers of Pure Silver 3x daily. That dose can be doubled or even tripled to fight an aggressive bacterial infection. Silver may be applied topically to any affected areas 4 or more times daily.

ShopFreeMart Pure Nature Nutrients contains immune-supporting nutrients and a healthy immune system is also important in the body's fight against disease.

Siaga is antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-aging. The minerals in Siaga may play an active role in lengthening telemeres, production of stem cells, human growth hormone, DHEA, SOD, endorphins, and glutathione, which in turn supports a strong immune system and disease prevention. Siaga is also known for its antiviral benefits and ability to support a strong immune system, which is important for preventing and fighting viral infections.

Anti-Fungal

Fungus can get into any warm, moist area and often feeds off of sugars. Cutting off sugars can help combat intestinal fungus or yeast, but it order to eradicate yeast from the body, it must be contained in the colon by closing up the tiny perforations in the lining of the gut.

Due to the onslaught of chemicals being forced upon mankind via vaccines, antibiotics, other medications, toxic food, water and Genetically Modified (GMO) Foods, almost everybody today sufferes from leaky gut syndrome. ShopFreeMart Immunize and Activate both help to heal leaky gut and wipe out candida. Both should be taken daily on an ongoing basis by all who are suffering from fungal infections and or leaky gut.

An overgrowth of yeast and fungus can get inside your intestines, causing muscle pain and symptoms of depression and attention deficit disorder. It can also result in all the symptoms of headaches, lymph problems, lupus and autoimmune disorders, including fibromyalgia.

For a yeast or fungus infection in the armpits or vagina, apply Pure Silver to the affected areas and take Pure Silver internally. Silver can be applied topically 4 or more times daily, or as needed. Taking 2-3 droppers of Pure Silver 2-3 times daily will kill yeast and fungus internally. You can also apply it topically 1-4 times daily as needed. This dosage should be continued for at least two weeks after the symptoms are no longer present.

PureSilver can also be diluted using purified water to inject into the rectum or vagina using a syringe or douche bottle. Use 1-3 droppers of ShopFreeMart PureSilver (depending upon the severity of the infection) to each oz. of water before injecting.

When large numbers of yeast colonies are killed rapidly, the cleanse may be accompanied by one to three weeks of flu-like symptoms until the dead yeast is washed out of the body.

Drinking plenty of purified water with ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops Concentrate added to it can help remove toxins that are being released as a result of any kind of detoxification program.

Acidophilus supports a healthy intestinal flora, which is an important part of the body's defense against the overgrowth of yeast and fungus. ShopFreeMart PureCopper, Siaga and D-Cal have anti-fungal properties, which in turn helps control the growth of yeast. It has been said that if you suffer from Candida that you are low in copper. ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops, PureCopper, PureMag and D-Cal support proper pH by neutralizing acid. These should be taken on a daily basis by anyone suffering from acidic pain.

There is a good probiotic found in the refrigerated section of some organic food stores that targets yeast in women. This can actually benefit both men and women in conjuction with taking Immunize if they are suffering from a systemic yeast infection. It is called Raw Probiotics Vaginal Care. It is made by Garden of Life and has 38 strains of good bacteria with a count of over 50 billion per capsule.

There is nothing else that comes close to fixing problems with the gut like ShopFreeMart Immunize and ShopFreeMart Actvate. ShopFreeMart Siaga is also a great companion to these two products, not only for healing the gut and preventing candida from escaping a leaky gut and entering the bloodstream, but also for strengthening the immune system.

Antioxidant

Free radicals are atoms with unpaired electrons. According to the free radical theory, radicals damage cells in an organism, causing aging. Mitochondria, regions of the cell that manufacture chemical energy, produce free radicals and are the primary sites for free radical damage. By eliminating free radicals from cells through genetic means and dietary restriction, laboratories have extended the maximum age of laboratory animals.

A cloud of electrons surrounds the nucleus of an atom. These electrons exist in pairs, but occasionally an atom loses an electron, leaving the atom with an unpaired electron. The atom is then called a "free radical," or sometimes just a "radical," and is very reactive. When cells in the body encounter a radical it causes destruction in the cell. Constant radical damage eventually kills the cell. When radicals kill or damage enough cells in an organism, the organism ages.

The production of radical oxygen (the most common radical) occurs mostly within the mitochondria of a cell. Mitochondria are small membrane-enclosed regions of a cell that produce the chemicals a cell uses for energy. Mitochondria accomplish this task through a mechanism called the "electron transport chain." In this mechanism, electrons are passed between different molecules and with each pass produce useful chemical energy. Oxygen occupies the final position in the electron transport chain. Occasionally, the passed electron incorrectly interacts with oxygen, producing oxygen in radical form.

The primary site of radical oxygen damage is mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). Every cell contains an enormous set of molecules called DNA, which provide chemical instructions for a cell to function and reproduce. This DNA is found in the mitochondria and in the nucleus of the cell, which serves as the "command center" of the cell. The cell fixes much of the damage done to nuclear DNA. However, mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) cannot be readily fixed. Therefore, extensive mtDNA damage accumulates over time and shuts down mitochondria, causing cells to die and the organism to age.

Protection of mtDNA from radicals slows aging in laboratory animals. Some laboratories have produced fruit flies that live one-third longer than normal fruit flies. These labs genetically altered the fruit flies to produce more natural antioxidants. Antioxidants are molecules that eliminate radicals, so elevated levels of antioxidants prevent much of the mtDNA damage done by radicals. Other labs severely restricted the food intake of laboratory rats, causing a 50% increase in maximum lifespan compared to rats allowed to eat freely. The mitochondria of starved rats are not provided with enough material to function at full capacity. Therefore, the electron transport chains in mitochondria of the starved rats pass fewer electrons. With fewer electrons passed, fewer oxygen radicals are produced, so aging slows.

One main problem with the free radical theory is the failure of antioxidants administered as dietary supplements, like vitamins E and C, to significantly increase maximum lifespan. Proponents of the radical theory believe that dietary antioxidants, unlike natural antioxidants produced by cells, do not reach mitochondrial DNA, leaving this site susceptible to radical attack. Interestingly, even though supplemental antioxidants fail to increase maximum lifespan, they do increase the chances of living to the maximum lifespan. This may be due to antioxidant protection of other parts of the cell, like cellular proteins and membranes, from radical damage.

The goal of all research on the free radical theory is to slow aging and increase maximum lifespan. The achievements so far are astounding; increasing the lifespan of fruit flies and rats is an impressive feat. Despite such success, no practical applications of the theory have been perfected. Genetic alteration is both controversial and difficult for humans. Starvation, while lengthening lifespan, is an unappealing alternative. Dietary antioxidants fail to increase maximum lifespan. However, the production of radicals and their role in aging is well understood.

Perhaps the single greatest factor in the search for longevity is hydration. Death actually comes as a result of dehydration.

ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops could be the long-lost fountain of youth and is by far the best thing I have found for getting your cells hydrated.

Anti-Tumor

When scientists want to create tumors in lab animals, they simply eliminate Magnesium from their diets. When that is done a tumor is certain to form.

It makes sense that many tumors are nothing more than a manifestation of Magnesium deficiency. I therefore look to Magnesium as one of the first remedies that may be applied.

It is important to note that most people are Magnesium deficient due to depleted soils and commercial farming methods and modern diets, which tend to be devoid of this precious mineral.

Most Magnesium supplements are in the wrong isoform and to absorb any amount of the available Magnesium, you would need to consume hydrochloric acid at the same time and take so much of it that it would certainly give you diarrhea.

ShopFreeMart PureMag is the only Magnesium supplement that I can in good conscience recommend. It is in a form that is quickly recognized by the body. It can be used topically and internally and it crosses the blood-brain barrier, allowing it to travel to all parts of your body.

I recommend that everybody should be taking a recommended dose of ShopFreeMart PureMag on a daily basis and if suffering from a tumor, you may need to load up for a period of time by taking 2-3 times the recommended amount. You can safely take any amount up to the point of it giving you diarrhea. That point is not necessarily dangerous; it would only be taking more than is necessary.

In addition to a deficiency of Magnesium, there can be other causes of tumors. Viruses can also cause tumors as well as cancer, for example the human papilloma virus that can result in cervical cancer in women.

Bacterium does not usually cause tumors, but when bacteria gets into the cell and compromises your immune function, you become more susceptible to other toxins in the air and water. This allows DNA to be damaged and a tumor to form. Bacteria such as hepatitis B can make a person more prone to cancer.

Those with a tumor should take 2-3 droppers of Pure Silver 3x daily. For more acute problems, this can be doubled or tripled and should cause no ill effects. Also apply Pure Silver topically several times daily to the tumor if it is visible.

One oz. of Pure Gold and one dropper full of Hydration Drops should also be added to 1 gallon of distilled water and then drink 8 oz. of this dilution first thing every morning on an empty stomch and then wait for 1/2 hour before eating or drinking anything.

If cancer runs in the immediate family, 1-3 droppers of Pure Silver daily can be taken as a preventive method.

Maintaining a diet that is low in fat and sugar and high in proteins, fiber, fruits and vegetables will also help. In addition you want to get at least eight hours of sleeps a night. You'll also want to take ShopFreeMart Pure Nature Nutrients, which has immune enhancing capabilities. Exercise if possible on a daily basis. I'm not talking strenuous, but just a walking type of exercise to make sure your circulation is good and your body's immune function is properly working in concert with your lymph system. See Breathing Exercises

You want to neutralize toxins in your air and water using proper filtration in your home. You want to cleanse your blood and your intestines. ShopFreeMart PureCopper and Siaga support clean healthy blood and good circulation. I also recommend eating raw fruits and vegetables to support a clean and healthy colon.

A healthy liver is your first line of defense. ShopFreeMart PureCopper and Hydration Drops can help keep your liver clean. See Liver Cleanse

Taking milk thistle and Omegas 3, 6 and 9 can also be helpful in cleansing the liver. ShopFreeMart products also provide necessary antioxidants and help clean the blood. I do not recommend fish oil supplements. A good organic flax oil is much better and could help to shrink tumors.

ShopFreeMart may reduce the risk of tumors and it also eliminates free radicals, toxins and other pathogens that may be the cause of tumors. Regular use of ShopFreeMart Nature Nutrients can also help to strengthen the immune system, helping it to ward off disease-causing microorganisms.

Negativity is a major cause of tumors and cancer. Make a list of all negative things in your life, including television, radio, newspapers and negative people. Begin to eliminate all negativity from your life. Tell negative friends and family that you are going through a special therapy and won't be able to contact them for some time. You also want to eliminate as much stress as you possibly can. See Forgiveness and Joy

Anti-Viral

Viruses cause many diseases that we don't have pharmaceutical drugs to cure. For this reason, the human race is at a high risk for virus activity. We have viruses that are being treated incorrectly with antibiotics. Antibiotics do nothing to destroy or cure viral infections. Pure Silver is very powerful against both reverse transcriptase and DNA polymerase viruses, interfering with the replication process.

By taking 2-3 droppers of Pure Silver 3x daily, you can potentially defeat an existing viral infection.

For viral infections in the lungs or sinuses, inhaling liquid silver through a nebulizer works the best. If you have access to a nebulizer, mix one dropper of PureSilver with 1-2 TBs. of distilled water in your nebulizer and inhale the silver and water vapor for 15-30 minutes 2-4 times daily until infection is gone.

Drops can also be placed in your ears, eyes, nose, or throat twice daily.

To prevent a cold or flu, take 1-2 droppers of Pure Silver 2x daily. If you are exposed to a lot of coughing and sneezing, the dose can be doubled.

Siaga is antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-aging. The minerals in Siaga may play an active role in lengthening telemeres, production of stem cells, human growth hormone, DHEA, SOD, endorphins, and glutathione, which in turn supports a strong immune system and disease prevention. Siaga is also known for its antiviral benefits and ability to support a strong immune system, which is important for preventing and fighting viral infections.

Antibiotic Alternative

It's very rare that anyone in the medical mainstream is ever mad enough to break ranks and tell the world that pharmaceutical drugs are next to useless for treating disease.

Afterall, they'd risk losing their funding from thegovernment and Big Pharma. They'd be dismissed ascrackpots. Their professional reputations would be in tatters. It would be professional suicide!

Margaret Chan, Director general of the World Health Organization heralded 'the end of modern medicine' as the WHO finally admitted that antibiotics had been so over-used that they're now almost completely useless against 'super strains' of bacterial infection.

The result of this, she warns, could be that routine operations become impossible to carry out and minor cuts and grazes become potentially life-threatening.

Viruses cause many diseases that we don't have pharmaceutical drugs to cure. For this reason, the human race is at a high risk for virus activity. We have viruses that are being treated incorrectly with antibiotics. Antibiotics do nothing to destroy or cure viral infections.

PureSilver on the other hand is very powerful against both reverse transcriptase and DNA polymerase viruses, interfering with their replication process. 

Silver kills every known disease causing bacteria and virus and even kills some parasites. The best part is that these organisms cannot create immunity to silver. It remains effective no matter how often it is used. Furthermore, it is safe, without side effects and is relatively inexpensive.

Taking 2-3 droppers of ShopFreeMart PureSilver 3x daily, can potentially defeat an existing viral infection. For viral infections in the lungs or sinuses, inhaling liquid silver through a nebulizer works the best. Mix one dropper of PureSilver to 1-2 TBs. of distilled water in a nebulizer to be inhaled for 15-30 minutes. This procedure can be repeated 2-4 times daily as needed to reduce congestion. Drops can also be placed in your ears, eyes, nose, or throat 2-3 daily.

To prevent a cold or flu, take 1-2 droppers of Pure Silver 2x daily. If you are exposed to a lot of coughing and sneezing, the dose can be doubled.

Siaga is antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-aging. The minerals in Siaga may play an active role in lengthening telemeres, production of stem cells, human growth hormone, DHEA, SOD, endorphins, and glutathione, which in turn supports a strong immune system and disease prevention. Siaga is also known for its antiviral benefits and ability to support a strong immune system, which is important for preventing and fighting viral infections.

ShopFreeMart Immunize and Activate help to heal and prevent leaky gut, which can be a factor in every disease, plus they help support a healthy and powerful immune system.

Taking all of the ShopFreeMart products may also prove helpful.

Anxiety

Anxiety (also called angst or worry) is a psychological and physiological state characterized by somatic, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral components. It is the displeasing feeling of fear and concern. Anxiety can create feelings of fear, worry, uneasiness, and dread. Anxiety is considered to be a normal reaction to a stress and may be helpful in dealing with a demanding situation, but when anxiety becomes excessive, it is then classified as a disorder.

The physical effects of anxiety may include heart palpitations, tachycardia, muscle weakness and tension, fatigue, nausea, chest pain, shortness of breath, stomachaches, or headaches. As the body prepares to deal with a threat, blood pressure, heart rate, perspiration, blood flow to the major muscle groups are increased, while immune and digestive functions are inhibited (the fight or flight response). External signs of anxiety may include pallor, sweating, trembling, and pupillary dilation.

When toxins overload the body, undue stress is put on the organs of elimination and stress burns up the body's reserves of nutrition at an alarming rate. The protocol for anxiety then is to kill harmful microorganisms by taking 1-2 droppers of Pure Silver 2x daily and eliminate toxins that are causing stress.

ShopFreeMart Pure Nature Nutrients also provides important nutrients that can help to get at the root of Anxiety as well.

Appendix

Your appendix is a slimy sac that hangs between your small and large intestines. It has long been thought of as a worthless evolutionary artifact, good for nothing except a potentially lethal case of inflammation. But now researchers suggest that your appendix is a lot more than a useless remnant.

Your appendix is a storehouse for good bacteria that may be needed to repopulate the gut after a case of diarrhea. Past studies have also found the appendix can help manufacture, direct and train white blood cells.

Appendicitis, (inflamed appendix) can be fatal. According to the CDC, over 320,000 people are hospitalized each year, and up to 400 Americans die due to appendicitis.

Until recently, the appendix was believed to be an organ that served no purpose in your body, and for this reason alone, surgeons have routinely removed them. Recent research has discovered that this is not true.

As common sense dictates, there is a purpose for every organ in your body, even the ones that modern medicine can't figure out, and your appendix is one of them.

If the good bacteria in your colon dies, which could happen as a result of cholera or dysentery for instance, it appears your appendix steps up to help recolonize your gut with good bacteria.

Modern society has become so vigilant against bacteria that many forget a very important point, bacteria in your body actually outnumber your cells by about ten to one and without them you would die.

For example, the friendly bacteria that reside in your gut have a number of very important functions, such as:

Digesting and absorbing certain carbohydrates. Without good gut bacteria, your body cannot absorb certain undigested starches, fiber, and sugars. The friendly bacteria in your digestive tract convert these carbohydrates into primary sources of important energy and nutrients.

Bacteria produce vitamins, absorb minerals and eliminate toxins. Probiotics help in the production of both vitamin K and B vitamins, and promote mineral absorption. They also aid in metabolism and the breakdown of toxins.

Friendly bacteria compete with the bad guys for room and board and help to keep bad bacteria under control. A deficiency of good bacteria can lead to bad bacteria getting out of control.

The good bacteria tell your body how much nutrition they need and your body responds by supplying just that much and no more. This results in excess bad bacteria being starved out. The helpful bacteria also produce a substance that kills harmful microbes.

Friendly bacteria train your immune system to distinguish between pathogens and non-harmful antigens, and to respond appropriately. This important function prevents your immune system from overreacting to non-harmful antigens, which is the genesis of or cause of allergies.

Beneficial bacteria have a lifelong, powerful effect on your gut's immune system and your systemic immune system as well. These bacteria play a crucial role in the development and operation of the mucosal immune system in your digestive tract. They also aid in the production of antibodies to pathogens.

It's also important to remember that 80 percent of your immune system is located in your digestive system, making a healthy gut a major focal point if you want to maintain optimal health. A robust immune system is your number one defense system against disease.

Researchers have speculated that despite the beneficial influence of the appendix, most people living in the modern world don't need it because you can easily repopulate the good bacteria in your gut.

I disagree with this assessment because your good bacteria is constantly being assaulted by antibiotics, chlorinated water, birth control pills, stress, sugar, and a host of other environmental factors. Gastrointestinal problems are in fact a very common concern for a majority of Americans.

Ideally, your gut should contain a ratio of 85 percent good bacteria to 15 percent non-beneficial bacteria, but the factors I listed above have actually caused this ratio to reverse in many people.

This is why I often recommend that you use a high-quality probiotic as an "insurance policy" to make sure your body remains balanced with good strains of bacteria, particularly if you don't lead a perfectly healthy lifestyle.

It's also worth keeping in mind that this is still just the beginning as far as what scientists know about the appendix. It may turn out to have other far-reaching but important effects on your body function than what is currently known.

After all, scientists have now discovered that more than 70 percent of all primate and rodent groups contain certain species with an appendix. If its purpose was so inconsequential, why would so many different species have it?

So far, at least one negative side effect of having your appendix removed (called an appendectomy) has been uncovered; an increased risk of Crohn's disease. So please, don't fall for the advice to have your appendix removed simply because "it has no purpose."

Naturally, there are times when an appendectomy is warranted. If your appendix becomes infected or inflamed, failing to remove it could be fatal.

Just don't agree to have your appendix removed for no other reason than you're having an unrelated abdominal surgery performed, which happens more frequently than you might think.

Major warning signs that your appendix might be a problem include:

You have absolutely no appetite, even for your most favorite foods.

You have pain that started around your belly button and has moved to your lower right abdominal area.

You have pain when jumping up and down. First, jump up and down gently. If there is no pain, try jumping higher. This will move your peritoneal cavity and if it is irritated with an inflamed appendix, the movement will cause considerable pain.

If you have all of the above symptoms you should be evaluated at your nearest emergency room.

If you are a woman, you may benefit from receiving a CT scan or ultrasound prior to having an appendectomy. A study published in the journal Radiology found that in women who had this done prior to surgery, a healthy appendix was removed 7 percent of the time, compared with48 percent of the time when no scan was done.

A sensible diet can prevent most problems that you may experience with your appendix. Biting fingernails and popcorn shells are two of the most common causes of inflamed appendix. ShopFreeMart PureCopper, PureMag, Siaga and Vitalize support a healthy appendix.

Appreciation

One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live.

They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family. On their return, the father asked his son, "How was the trip?"

"It was great, Dad." "Did you see how poor people live?" the father asked.

"Oh yeah," said the son.

"So, tell me what you learned from the trip." said the father.

The son answered, "I saw that we have one dog and they have four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon.

We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight.

We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them."

The boy's father was speechless.

Then his son added, "Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are."

Isn't perspective a wonderful thing? Life would be much more wonderful, if we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying about what we don't have.

Life is too short and friends are too few to not appreciate every single thing you have, especially your friends!

Artery Disease

Heart Surgeon admits huge mistake regarding cause of artery disease:

By Dwight Lundell, MD 02/06/2009

We physicians with all our training, knowledge and authority often acquire a rather large ego that tends to make it difficult to admit we are wrong. So, here it is I freely admit to being wrong. As a heart surgeon with 25 years of experience, having performed over 5,000 open-heart surgeries, today is my day to right the wrong with medical and scientific facts.

I trained for many years with other prominent physicians labeled "opinion makers." Bombarded with scientific literature, continually attending education seminars, we opinion makers insisted heart disease resulted from the simple fact of elevated blood cholesterol.

The only accepted therapy was prescribing medications to lower cholesterol and a diet that severely restricted fat intake.

The latter of course we insisted would lower cholesterol and heart disease. Deviations from these recommendations were considered heresy and could quite possibly result in malpractice.

It Didn't Work!

These recommendations are no longer scientifically or morally defensible. The discovery a few years ago that "inflammation" in the artery wall is the real cause of heart disease is slowly leading to a paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be treated.

The long-established dietary recommendations have created epidemics of obesity and diabetes, the consequences of which dwarf any historical plague in terms of mortality, human suffering and dire economic consequences.

Despite the fact that 25% of the population takes expensive statin medications and despite the fact we have reduced the fat content of our diets, more Americans will die this year of heart disease than ever before.

Statistics from the American Heart Association show that 75 million Americans currently suffer from heart disease, 20 million have diabetes and 57 million have pre-diabetes. These disorders are affecting younger and younger people in greater numbers every year.

Simply stated, without inflammation being present in the body, there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate in the wall of the blood vessel and cause heart disease and strokes. Without inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to become trapped.

Inflammation is not complicated -- it is quite simply your body's natural defense to a foreign invader such as a bacteria, toxin or virus. The cycle of inflammation is perfect in how it protects your body from these bacterial and viral invaders.

However, if we chronically expose the body to injury by toxins or foods the human body was never designed to process, a condition called chronic inflammation occurs. Chronic inflammation is just as harmful as acute inflammation is beneficial.

What thoughtful person would willfully expose himself repeatedly to foods or other substances that are known to cause injury to the body? Well, smokers perhaps, but at least they made that choice willfully.

The rest of us have simply followed the recommended mainstream diet that is low in fat and high in polyunsaturated fats and carbohydrates, not knowing we were causing repeated injury to our blood vessels. This repeated injury creates chronic inflammation leading to heart disease, stroke, diabetes and obesity.

Let me repeat that. The injury and inflammation in our blood vessels is caused by the low fat diet that has been recommended for years by mainstream medicine.

What are the biggest culprits of chronic inflammation? Quite simply, they are the overuse of simple, highly processed carbohydrates (sugar, flour and all the products made from them) and the excess consumption of omega-6 vegetable oils like soybean, corn and sunflower that are found in many processed foods.

Now, I'll discuss which foods cause inflammation, how those foods trigger the inflammatory process and the foods to eat that will cure inflammation.

Take a moment to visualize rubbing a stiff brush repeatedly over soft skin until it becomes quite red and nearly bleeding. Let's say you kept this up several times a day, every day for five years. If you could tolerate this painful brushing, you would have a bleeding, swollen infected area that became worse with each repeated injury. This is a good way to visualize the inflammatory process that could be going on inside your body right now.

Regardless of where the inflammatory process occurs, externally or internally, it is the same. I have peered inside thousands upon thousands of arteries. A diseased artery looks as if someone took a brush and scrubbed repeatedly against its wall. The foods we eat several times a day create small injuries compounding into more injuries, causing the body to respond continuously and appropriately with inflammation.

While we savor the tantalizing taste of a sweet roll, our bodies respond alarmingly as if a foreign invader arrived, declaring war. Foods loaded with sugars and simple carbohydrates, or processed with omega-6 oils for long shelf life have been the mainstay of the American diet for six decades. These foods have been poisoning everyone.

How does eating a simple sweet roll create a cascade of inflammation to make you sick?

Imagine spilling syrup on your keyboard; then you have a visual of what occurs inside the cell. When we consume simple carbohydrates such as sugar, blood sugar rises rapidly. In response, your pancreas secretes insulin whose primary purpose is to drive sugar into each cell where it is stored for energy. If the cell is full and does not need glucose, it is rejected to avoid extra sugar gumming up the works.

When your full cells reject the extra glucose, blood sugar rises producing more insulin and the glucose converts to stored fat.

What does all this have to do with inflammation?

Blood sugar is controlled in a very narrow range. Extra sugar molecules attach to a variety of proteins that in turn injure the blood vessel wall. This repeated injury to the blood vessel wall sets off inflammation. When you spike your blood sugar level several times a day, every day, it is exactly like taking sandpaper to the inside of your delicate blood vessels.

While you may not be able to see it, rest assured it is there. I saw it in over 5,000 surgical patients spanning 25 years who all shared one common denominator - inflammation in their arteries.

Let's get back to the sweet roll. That innocent looking "goody" not only contains sugars, it is baked in one of many omega-6 oils such as soybean. Chips and fries are soaked in soybean oil; processed foods are manufactured with omega-6 oils for longer shelf life. While omega-6's are essential -they are part of every cell membrane controlling what goes in and out of the cell - they must be in the correct balance with omega-3's.

If the balance shifts by consuming excessive omega-6, the cell membrane produces chemicals called cytokines that directly cause inflammation. Today's mainstream American diet has produced an extreme imbalance of these two fats. The ratio of imbalance ranges from 15:1 to as high as 30:1 in favor of omega-6. That's a tremendous amount of cytokines causing inflammation. In today's food environment, a 3:1 ratio would be optimal and healthy.

To make matters worse, the excess weight you are carrying from eating these foods creates overloaded fat cells that pour out large quantities of pro-inflammatory chemicals that add to the injury caused by having high blood sugar. The process that began with a sweet roll turns into a vicious cycle over time that creates heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and finally Alzheimer's disease, as the inflammatory process continues unabated.

There is no escaping the fact that the more we consume prepared and processed foods, the more we trip the inflammation switch little by little each day. The human body cannot process, nor was it designed to consume, foods packed with sugars and soaked in omega-6 oils.

There is but one answer to quieting inflammation, and that is returning to foods closer to their natural state. To build muscle, eat more protein. Choose carbohydrates that are very complex such as colorful fruits and vegetables. Cut down on or eliminate inflammation-causing omega-6 fats like corn and soybean oil and the processed foods that are made from them. One tablespoon of corn oil contains 7,280 mg of omega-6; soybean contains 6,940 mg. Instead, use olive oil or butter from grass-fed beef.

Animal fats contain less than 20% omega-6 and are much less likely to cause inflammation than the supposedly healthy oils labeled polyunsaturated. Forget the "science" that has been drummed into your head for decades. The science that saturated fat alone causes heart disease does not exist.

The science that saturated fat raises blood cholesterol is also very weak. Since we now know that cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease, the concern about saturated fat is even more absurd today.

The cholesterol theory led to the no-fat, low-fat recommendations that in turn created the very foods now causing an epidemic of inflammation. Mainstream medicine made a terrible mistake when it advised people to avoid saturated fat in favor of foods high in omega-6 fats. We now have an epidemic of arterial inflammation leading to heart disease and other silent killers.

What you can do is choose whole foods your grandmother served and not those your mum turned to as grocery store aisles filled with manufactured foods. By eliminating inflammatory foods and adding essential nutrients from fresh unprocessed food, you will reverse years of damage in your arteries and throughout your body from consuming the typical American diet.

Cardiovascular / Heart Disease

Cardiovascular disease affects the heart, veins, arteries, and the circulation of blood and nutrients throughout the body. It is estimated that as much as 80 percent of all cardiovascular disease has its origin as a bacterial infection that originates in the mouth.

Cardiovascular disease can come from a bacterial infection like strep throat or a staph infection. By brushing the teeth with ShopFreeMart NVIRO Shave and Shower Gel and rinsing the mouth with a dropper full of FreeMart PureSilver liquid, you can kill the bacteria in the gums that lead to cardiovascular disease. This will also kill the bacteria that cause gum disease and bad breath.

Kidney Disease can also be a causative factor in Heart Disease. When the kidneys are unable to remove enough toxins and keep you healthy, wastes, which can make you sick will then build to high levels in your blood, causing an overgrowth of bacteria. If not treated, you may develop complications like high blood pressure, anemia (low blood count), weak bones, poor nutritional health and nerve damage. Also, kidney disease increases your risk of having heart and blood vessel disease.

Six drops of ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops Concentrate added to each gallon of distilled drinking water has been known to help remove toxins from the kidneys and reduce creatine levels in the urine. (See Kidney Disease)

People who are inactive are more likely to gain weight because they don't burn up the calories that they take in from food and drinks. An inactive lifestyle also raises your risk for heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, colon cancer, and other health problems.

Magnesium reduces the risk of heart attack and ShopFreeMart PureMag is the brand I recommend. Copper is also necessary for creating healthy blood and healthy blood vessels. ShopFreeMart PureCopper is the best I have found to help keep your blood and blood vessels at peak performance. ShopFreeMart PureMag, PureCopper and D-Cal may also help repair the endothelial cells in the blood vessels and reduce hardening of the arteries.

Arthritis / Rheumatism

I recently read where Americans spent 120 Billion dollars a year to treat arthritis, without a single person being cured. The best you can really hope for is some drug to mask a little bit of the pain you are suffering, but it doesn't have to be that way.

My mother was a great cook and could make almost anything taste great, but I paid a terrible price for a diet that many people would die for. I still remember when I was nine-months old and the thing I remember is pain. I never knew a single day without pain while I was growing up. My pain was so severe that I often couldn't sleep and therefore suffered from sleep deprivation as well. I had severe arthritis, fibromyalgia, bleeding stomach ulcers, tuberculosis, and severe bouts with pneumonia at least once or twice a year.

Many years later I had complete body x-rays and the doctor, after showing me the x-rays, told me that I had the most severe case of childhood arthritis he had ever seen - it left scars on every bone in my body.

It may have been my own suffering that prompted my education in nutrition. I was taking pre-law at the university and happened to take Nutrition 101 as a filler class. I became so enthralled with the subject that my other classes suffered. I followed my passion and changed my major to nutrition, which I'm glad I did because not only was I able to heal my own arthritis and other painful health challenges, I have helped over 1,000 people recover from cancer.

Rheumatism is an older term used to describe a number of painful conditions of muscles, tendons, joints, and bones.

Arthritis is a common condition that causes pain and inflammation (swelling) of the joints and bones. The main symptoms of arthritis include:

Pain
Stiffness
Restricted movements of the joints
Inflammation and swelling
Warmth and redness of the skin over the joints
The most common forms of arthritis are:
Osteoarthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. In people affected by osteoarthritis, the cartilage (connective tissue) between their bones gradually wastes away (degenerates), leading to painful rubbing of bone on bone in the joints. The most frequently affected joints are in the Hands, spine, knees and hips.

Osteoarthritis often develops in people who are over 50 years of age. However, it can develop at any age as a result of diet, toxin overload, injury or another joint-related condition.

Rheumatoid arthritis often starts between 40 and 50 years of age. Women are three times more likely to be affected by the condition than men. It is a more severe, but less common, form of arthritis than osteoarthritis.

Rheumatoid arthritis is believed to occur when the body's immune system attacks and destroys the affected joints, causing pain and swelling to occur, but it is actually caused by acids from diet and toxin overload that attack and destroy the joints.

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words - put a chicken bone in a liter of coke overnight and the next day the bone will be flexible like rubber.

Acid from environmental toxins, foods and drinks (like sodas) gradually dissolve bone and connective tissue, leaving bone to rub on bone with a layer of acid crystals in between them, much like sandpaper. This obviously is a very painful condition.

I grew up on a pig and dairy farm. We frequently ate home grown pork nearly every day and sometimes as many as twice or three times a day. I had all of the milk, cream, butter, cheese and cottage cheese that I could possibly want. My mother was famous for her baking and to add insult to injury, every day I had fresh-baked bread, rolls and frequently enjoyed luxuries like strawberry short-cake, pies, pineapple upside-down cake, etc.

People with arthritis and other acid-induced diseases must make some lifestyle changes.

Aspartame Disease

If it says "sugar free" don't touch it.

There is an epidemic of multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus, fibromyalgia and Alzheimer's disease across the country and the world. One of the major causes of these diseases is in our supermarkets, drug stores, candy stores, restaurants and it has gone from those places into our homes. One of the poisons that is causing these epidemics is aspartame; a sweetener marketed as Nutrasweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc.

When the temperature of Aspartame exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in aspartame converts to formaldehyde and then to Formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. Formic acid is the same poison used by fire ants to sting and kill their victims. This methanol toxic condition in the human body can mimic multiple sclerosis.

Symptoms of Aspartame Disease Include:

Fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting pains, burning tongue, cramps, vertigo, numbness in the legs, dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, joint pain, depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, blindness and memory loss, severe seizures, panic attacks, rage and violence, severe memory loss, coma, escalates Alzheimer's disease, birth defects (such as mental retardation), brain tumors (lately surgeons have found high levels of aspartame in tumors removed from patients) , escalates diabetes symptoms.

Aspartame is manufactured by the NutraSweet Corporation, a subsidiary of Monsanto, who are fully aware of the dangers of this product. However, as Monsanto also funds the American Diabetics Association, the American Dietetic Association, the United States Congress, and the Conference of the American College of Physicians, there is a conspiracy of silence with regard to the dangers of this artificial sweetener, which is contained in over 5,000 sugar-free products sold under the brand names listed below.

Neotame, Nutrasweet, Nutrisweet, Aspertame, Nutri sweet, Nutri-sweet, Monsanto, Kelco, Nutrasweet Kelco, Benevia, Equal, Team Equal, Equal Measure, Spoonful, Diet Soda, Diet Coke, Diet Pepsi, Diet Sprite, Pepsi Light, Pepsi Max, Crystal Light, Sweeteners, Artificial Sweetener, Acesulfame-K, Sucralose, Sunette, Sunnette, Sweet One, Sweet & Safe, Splenda, Canderel, Chuker, Misura, Manugel, Keltrol, Kelcogel, Nutrifos, Stabil-9, Levn-Lite, Spoonful.

The New York Times, on November 15th 1996, ran an article on how the American Dietetic Association takes money from the food industry to endorse their products. Therefore, they cannot criticize any additives or tell about their link to Monsanto.

Neurosurgeon, Dr. Russell Blaylock said, "The ingredients stimulate the neurons of the brain to death, causing brain damage of varying degrees." Dr. Blaylock has written a book entitled Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills, published by Health Press.

Dr. R.H. Roberts, diabetic specialist and world expert on aspartame poisoning, has also written a book entitled Defense Against Alzheimer's Disease. He writes about how Aspartame poisoning is escalating Alzheimer's disease.

Today women as young as 30 years of age are being treated for Alzheimer's disease.

Dr. Roberts realized what was happening when Aspartame was first marketed. He said diabetic patients presented symptoms of memory loss, confusion, and severe vision loss.

In Desert Storm several thousand pallets of diet drinks were shipped to the troops in the desert where they sat in the 120 degree F desert sun for weeks (remember at 86 degrees F. methanol poison is released). The symptoms of Desert Storm Syndrome match exactly those of Aspartame Disease.

Sweet Poison:

"In October of 2001, my sister started getting very sick. She had stomach spasms and she was having a hard time getting around. Walking was a major chore. It took everything she had just to get out of bed; she was in so much pain.

By March 2002, she had undergone several tissue and muscle biopsies and was on 24 various prescription medications. The doctors could not determine what was wrong with her. She was in so much pain, and so sick she just knew she was dying.

She put her house, bank accounts, life insurance, etc., in her oldest daughter's name, and made sure that her younger children would be taken care of.

She also wanted her last hooray, so she planned a trip to Florida (basically in a wheelchair) for March 22nd.

On March 19, I called her to ask how her most recent tests went, and she said they didn't find anything on the test, but they believed she had MS.

I recalled an article a friend of mine e-mailed to me and I asked my sister if she drank diet soda? She told me that she did. As a matter of fact, she was getting ready to crack one open that moment.

I told her not to open it, and to stop drinking the diet soda! I e-mailed her an article my friend, a lawyer, had sent. My sister called me within 32 hours after our phone conversation and told me she had stopped drinking the diet soda AND she could walk! The muscle spasms went away. She said she didn't feel 100% but, she sure felt a lot better.

She told me she was going to her doctor with this article and would call me when she got home.

Well, she called me, and said her doctor was amazed! He is going to call all of his MS patients to find out if they consumed artificial sweeteners of any kind. In a nutshell, she was being poisoned by the Aspartame in the diet soda and literally dying a slow and miserable death.

When she got to Florida March 22, all she had to take was one pill, and that was a pill for the Aspartame poisoning! She is well on her way to a complete recovery and she is walking! No wheelchair! This article saved her life.

If it says 'SUGAR FREE' on the label; DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!

In a keynote address by the EPA, it was announced that in the United States in 2001 there is an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus. They could not however isolate the cause.

For this reason, many people were being diagnosed in error. Although multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, methanol toxicity is!

Systemic lupus has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers.

The victim usually does not know that the aspartame is the culprit. He or she continues its use; irritating the lupus to such a degree that it may become a life-threatening condition. We have seen patients with systemic lupus become asymptotic, once taken off diet sodas.

In cases of those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, most of the symptoms disappear. We've seen many cases where vision loss returned and hearing loss improved markedly.

This also applies to cases of. During a lecture, I said, 'If you are using ASPARTAME (Nutra Sweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc) and you suffer from fibromyalgia, tinnitus, spasms, shooting, pains, numbness in your legs, cramps, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, joint pain, unexplainable depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss you probably have ASPARTAME poisoning!

The good new; these symptoms are reversible!

STOP drinking diet sodas and be alert for Aspartame and any of its names on food labels! A majority of processed foods and drinks contain it! This is a serious problem.

Diet soda is NOT a diet product! It is far more likely to make you GAIN weight! It is a chemically altered, multiple sodium and aspartame containing product that actually makes you crave carbohydrates.

These products also contain formaldehyde, which stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and thighs. Formaldehyde is an absolute toxin and is used primarily used as embalming fluid to preserve "tissue specimens."

Many products we use every day contain this chemical but we should NOT consume it as part of our diets!

Dr. H. J. Roberts stated in his lectures that once free of the "diet products" and with no significant increase in exercise; his patients lost an average of 19 pounds over a trial period.

Aspartame is especially dangerous for diabetics. We found that some physicians, who believed that they had a patient with retinopathy, in fact, had symptoms caused by Aspartame. The aspartame drives the blood sugar out of control. Thus diabetics may suffer acute memory loss due to the fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine are neurotoxic when taken without the other amino acids necessary for a good balance.

Treating diabetes is all about balance. Especially with diabetics, the aspartame passes the blood/brain barrier and it then deteriorates the neurons of the brain; causing various levels of brain damage, including seizures, depression, manic depression, panic attacks, uncontrollable anger and rage.

Consumption of aspartame causes these same symptoms in non-diabetics as well. Documentation and observation also reveal that thousands of children diagnosed with ADD and ADHD have had complete turnarounds in their behavior when these chemicals have been removed from their diet.

So called "behavior modification" prescription drugs (Ritalin and others) are no longer needed. Truth be told, they were never needed in the first place!

Most of these children were being "poisoned" on a daily basis with the very foods that were "better" for them than sugar.

It is also concluded that the aspartame in thousands of pallets of diet Coke and diet Pepsi consumed by men and women fighting in the Gulf War, may be partially to blame for the well-known Gulf War Syndrome.

Dr. Roberts warns that it can cause mental retardation and perhaps other birth defects, if taken at the time of conception and during early pregnancy. Children are especially at risk for neurological disorders and should NEVER be given artificial sweeteners.

Talking about a plague of neurological diseases directly caused by the use of this deadly poison, there are many different case histories that relate to children suffering grand mal seizures and other neurological disturbances.

Herein lays the problem: There were Congressional Hearings when aspartame was included in 100 different products, and strong objection was made concerning its use. Since this initial hearing, there have been two subsequent hearings and still nothing has been done. The drug and chemical lobbies have very deep pockets.

Since MONSANTO'S patent on aspartame has expired, there are now over 5,000 products on the market that contain this deadly chemical and there will be thousands more introduced. Everybody wants a "piece" of the aspartame pie.

MONSANTO knows how deadly aspartame is, but they are more concerned about their profits than they are about your suffering. And isn't it ironic that MONSANTO funds the American Diabetes Association, the American Dietetic Association and the Conference of the American College of Physicians to name a few?

This has been recently exposed in the New York Times. These organizations cannot criticize any additives or convey their link to MONSANTO because to receive this money, they are required to endorse their products.

Senator Howard Metzenbaum wrote and presented a bill that would require label warnings on products containing aspartame, especially regarding pregnant women, children and infants.

The bill would have instituted independent studies on the known dangers and the problems existing in the general population regarding seizures, changes in brain chemistry, neurological changes and behavioral symptoms.

The bill was killed.

The powerful drug and chemical lobbies are responsible for this, letting loose the demons of disease and death on an unsuspecting and uninformed public. Well, you're informed now, and the only way to win this war is to educate enough people who say NO to these poisons!

You obviously know 5-10 people that you don't want to see suffer from these symptoms. If everybody shared this information with 5-10 people, pretty soon the whole world would know and demand something better through their buying habits.

Anyone suffering from the effects of aspartame poisoning may benefit greatly by taking ShopFreeMart Pure Gold, as it turns on the body's function of detoxification, allowing the cells to open up and eliminate toxins that may have long been trapped inside. Drinking ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops Concentrate added to distilled water may also prove to be very beneficial.

Thomas Nelson, Inc. 2006)It is well documented that the chemical sweetener aspartame breaks down into several chemical components over time, including formaldehyde and methanol. 

One study conducted at the Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery, University of Miami, Miami, Florida, sought to explore formaldehyde poisoning in more detail. The abstract of this study reveals the following:   

Upon ingestion, Aspartame is broken, converted, and oxidized into Formaldehyde in various tissues. We present the first case series of aspartame-associated migraines related to clinically relevant positive reactions to formaldehyde on patch testing.

Athlete's Foot

Athlete's foot is basically a fungal infection on the skin. It occurs when we put our feet in shoes and keep them in a warm, moist area where fungus can grow. The first step to prevention is to wear clean shoes and reduce the amount of time that your foot stays in a moist sock.

Pure Silver can be sprayed directly on the foot and into your socks. Be sure to apply between the toes to kill any yeast growth. You can also spray silver into your shoes to kill any bacteria. In addition to athlete's foot, fungus can get underneath your toenails. By soaking your feet for 30 minutes every other day in a Pure Silver bath, you will kill the toenail fungus and the athlete's foot. The fungus will return if you continue to wear shoes or socks that are housing bacteria or fungus.

By killing the bacteria and yeast, Pure Silver will also remove the odor associated with athlete's foot.

Autoimmune Disease

All autoimmune conditions, disorders and syndromes are effects of the body’s immune system going in a state of hyper activity which is wrongly described as the immune system attacking the host. INFLAMMATION is the most common and ubiquitous cause of anything that may be termed an autoimmune disease or condition.

When undigested food proteins enter the blood stream through a leaky-gut wall, they set-off immune reactions that the medical system calls disease, but in fact are merely a condition of the immune system being overloaded and therefore over-responding.

Examples are; cancer, diabetes, asthma, fibromyalgia, lyme; arthritis, gout, neuropathy, bowel disorders, prostate and bladder infections, all of which are caused by fungal mycotoxins and their effect upon metabolism and hormones in a system whose immune system is overworked and dysfunctional. See individual conditions for more specific information.

Bacteria

Bacteria are single cell organisms that actually grow within or outside your body. Left uninhibited, bacteria can cause disease or death. Many of today's health problems result from bacteria. Pneumonia, one of the leading causes of death in America, comes from bacteria inside of the lungs.

Certain types of bacteria, such as Pseudomonas, are extremely aggressive and can cause severe damage and even blindness within 24-48 hours if left untreated. I have a Biochemist friend who was head of the Utah Department of Health for ten years. He performed lab tests for many years trying to find an antidote for Pseudomonas and he told me that there is no known antibiotic that will kill it.

Pure Silver will destroy bacteria in approximately six minutes. You will feel the effects within the first two hours of use and the benefits will continue as long as you use the product.

The nutrients found in ShopFreeMart and Pure Nature Nutrients support a healthy immune system and the body's fight against bacteria.

Bad Breath

Bad breath is usually caused by bacteria residing in the mouth and gums or between the teeth. Using Pure Silver rinse can destroy these bacteria. By rinsing the mouth for six minutes in the morning and at night, you will get rid of the bad breath.

Bad breath can also be caused by strep throat or a staph infection. In these cases, bacteria destroy the healthy tissue, causing red blisters and white pus to form in the back of the throat. The odor comes as a result of the degenerating tissue. Pure Silver is the fastest way to remedy the problem.

Spraying Pure Silver into the nose four times daily can treat odor caused by a sinus infection.

Baking Soda

Over 150 years ago Dr. Austin Church formed a business to produce and distribute Baking Soda.

ARM & HAMMER Baking Soda is derived from a natural occurring mineral called trona. It is 100% pure, safe, and natural. Baking Soda (also known as sodium bicarbonate) is a substance that is found naturally in all living things. Its purpose is to maintain pH balance in the bloodstream, which is necessary to sustain life.

Due to its chemical and physical properties, sodium bicarbonate has unique medicinal capabilities that every healthcare practitioner, doctor and patient needs to know about.
 
The only problem is that Arm & Hammer Baking Soda can replace many more expensive medicines and this does not make the medical industrial complex happy.

In today's modern world of medicine the FDA just will not let companies that sell products make medical claims about them unless they have been tested at great expense and approved as a drug. This was not always the case and as we can see in the information in this chapter, which is from a 1924 booklet, [1] published by the Arm & Hammer Soda Company. On page 12 the company starts off saying, "The proven value of Arm & Hammer Bicarbonate of Soda as a therapeutic agent is further evinced by the following evidence of a prominent physician named Dr. Volney S. Cheney,   in a letter to the Church & Dwight Company:
 
"In 1918 and 1919 while fighting the Flu' with the U. S. Public Health Service it was brought to my attention that rarely any one who had been thoroughly alkalinized with bicarbonate of soda contracted the disease (influenza), and those who did contract it, if alkalinized early, would invariably have mild attacks. I have since that time treated all cases of Cold,' Influenza and LaGripe by first giving generous doses of Bicarbonate of Soda, and in many, many instances within 36 hours the symptoms would have entirely abated. Further, within my own household, before Woman's Clubs and Parent-Teachers' Associations, I have advocated the use of Bicarbonate of Soda as a preventive for "Colds," with the result that now many reports are coming in stating that those who took "Soda" were not affected, while nearly every one around them had the "Flu."

Recommended dosages from the Arm and Hammer Company for colds and influenza back in 1925 were:
 
During the first day take six doses of half teaspoonful of Arm & Hammer Bicarbonate of Soda in glass of room temperature water, at about two hour intervals.

During the second day take four doses of half teaspoonful of Arm and Hammer Bicarbonate of Soda in glass of water, at the same intervals.

During the third day take two doses of half teaspoonful of Arm and Hammer Bicarbonate of Soda in glass of water morning and evening, and thereafter half teaspoonful in glass of water each morning until cold is cured.

"Well the sodium bicarbonate cure for colds and sore throats. A friend called as I was reading about it. She had just woken with it full on, was miserable, could hardly talk and was planning on missing work. I told her to try it. She is rapt!

Relief in a few hours, and she went to work the  following day!"

End of quote.

Arm and Hammer can no longer make these claims, but the truth doesn't change. What worked then will work today.

Whether or not you have cancer, I would appreciate hearing from you and any experiences you have as a result of using baking soda. 

If you are willing to perform your own case study, then start by writing down all of your symptoms; even the ones you have grown accustomed to and forgotten when you didn't have them. 

This includes all aches, pains, sleep patterns; condition of skin, eyes, hair, nails; texture, color and quality of stool, urine etc. As any of these things change, please make notes along with the date so you can track how quickly things have changed. Your experiences may be of benefit to someone else.

Dr. Tulio Simoncini, an oncologist from Italy used pure baking soda and water to cure many cancer patients. You may still be able to find some of his videos on YouTube. His method was to put baking soda solution into a blood vessel that feeds a particular organ that was plagued by cancer. The purpose was to get the solution directly to the cancer. In other instances, like the colon or lungs, he would insert a tube and irrigate the cancer cells directly. He was often able to clear up cancer in as little as 3 treatments.

Eventually he was shut down by the courts under pressure from the medical association and drug companies, because he was taking too much business away from the profession.

Dr. Otto Warburg in his Nobel Winning research found that cancer cannot grow in a pH of 7.0.  Dr. Simoncini found however that when cancer has taken hold, that a pH of at least 8.0 is required to kill it. That is why I recommend taking sufficient baking soda to boost the pH to 8.0-8.5.

Anybody who has a pH of 5.5 for an extended period of time is guaranteed to get cancer and the vast majority of people are at that point right now.

If you already have cancer, you want to boost your pH from 5.5 to 8.5 rather quickly. Those who use methods that boost pH slowly, invariably see their cancer start to grow rather quickly. That is because cancer grows faster at 6.5 than it does at 5.5.

This is not a point of concern for anyone who understands and checks their pH first urine sample every morning. You can purchase pH test strips from some health food stores, chemical stores, universities or on the Internet.

In this short commentary, I will give you a simple recipe using baking soda and molasses than many people have used to eradicate cancer.

Mix 2 tsp. of baking soda (not baking powder) in 1 glass of warm water. Stir in 1 tsp. of black-strap molasses and drink first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.

Work your way up to doing this 3-times a day. The object is to get your pH up to 8.5 for a period of at least 7 days. I personally did this for 4 months, without any problems and I am not aware of any side effects from doing this.

I have seen stage-4 cancer completely gone from the bones in as little as seven days. I have seen success even with pancreatic cancer, which is perhaps the worst.

I can't promise anything of course, but your odds are 99% better by attacking the cancer at its source, rather than further damaging your body through surgery, chemotherapy or radiation. Statistics show that people who refuse these procedures live an average of 5-years longer than those who don't and most of them aren't using this protocol.

The theory for mixing molasses with the baking soda is that cancer feeds on sugars and the baking soda attaches itself to the molasses. When the cancer feeds on the molasses, it is killed rather quickly by the baking soda.

Note: My personal preference is to take baking soda without the molasses because the evidence produced by Dr. Simoncini is that Candida is killed by direct contact with baking soda and therefore mixing it with the sugars found in molasses would appear to unnecessary and perhaps even counterproductive. Nonetheless, I will still report what others have had to say on the subject.

Molasses is also rich in Potassium and Magnesium. Often times when taking baking soda, the body needs extra Potassium and perhaps even Magnesium to maintain a proper balance.

Baking Soda and Pure Maple Syrup:

"There is not a tumor on God's green earth that cannot be licked with a little baking soda and maple syrup." That is the astonishing claim of controversial folk healer Jim Kelmun who says that this simple home remedy can stop and reverse the deadly growth of cancers. His loyal patients swear by the man they fondly call Dr. Jim and say he is a miracle worker.

"Those other doctors told me that I was a goner and had less than six months to live as a result of my lung cancer," said farmer Ian Roadhouse. "But Dr. Jim put me on his mixture and in a couple of months the cancer was gone. It did not even show up on the x-rays."

Dr. Jim discovered this treatment accidentally somewhere in the middle of the last century when he was treating a family plagued by breast cancer. There were five sisters in the family and four of them had died of breast cancer. He asked the remaining sister if there was anything different in her diet and she told him that she was partial to sipping maple syrup and baking soda.

Since then, reported by a newspaper in Ashville, North Carolina, Dr. Jim dispensed this remedy to over 200 people diagnosed with terminal cancer and amazingly 185 of them lived at least 15 more years and nearly half enjoyed a complete remission.

This treatment is a combination of pure, 100% organic maple syrup and baking soda. (Many of the nonorganic syrups are mixed with formaldehyde even though they say pure)

Cancer cells consume 15 times more glucose than normal cells. The cancer killing baking soda is dragged into the cancer cell along with the maple syrup, causing a very rapid shift in pH and oxygen levels, killing the cell.

The actual formula is to mix one part baking soda with three parts (pure, 100%) maple syrup in a small saucepan. Stir briskly and heat the mixture for 5 minutes. Research suggests taking 1 teaspoon daily, but one could probably do this several times a day or mix it with some of the other therapies for faster results.

The maple syrup apparently enables and increases penetration of bicarbonate into all compartments of body, even those which are difficult or impossible to penetrate by other means. These compartments include the central nervous system, the blood-brain barrier, joints, solid tumors, and perhaps even the eyes.

Another home remedy is 1/4 teaspoon apple cider vinegar and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda taken 2 or more times daily. Another treatment is lemon and baking soda, or lime and baking soda in water. Perhaps honey could be substituted for maple syrup or those who live in parts of the world where maple syrup is not available but to my knowledge no one has experimented with this. We do know that blackstrap molasses works.

Baking soda increases pH, which in turn increases oxygen levels in the body. Breathing exercises are also critical to increasing oxygen levels to the point of killing cancer cells quickly as well. (See Breathing Exercises)

Pure Silver is a broad-spectrum preventative agent. It destroys yeast and bacteria in as little as 15 seconds and kills the viruses and mold that may also cause cancer.

Those suffering from cancer should take 1-3 droppers of ShopFreeMart PureSilver every hour for the first nine hours on day one. Starting on day two, take 3 droppers 3x daily for the next six days, followed by 1 dropper  3x daily for maintenance. Much of the PureSilver held under the tongue for several minutes will pass directly through the mucosal lining of the mouth directly into the blood stream.

ShopFreeMart Pure Silver can be taken at the same time as ShopFreeMart PureGold, however do not take Silver and Baking Soda at the same time. Separate the two by at least one hour.

In my opinion, ShopFreeMart Siaga should also be used by anyone suffering from cancer. The individual ingredients found in Siaga have all been used successfully by many different cultures around the world as a viable treatment for cancer and I believe that the synergistic effect of the Chaga mushroom, Black Cumin Seed and Licorice Root together are even more powerful than any of these herbs taken individually. If I had cancer, Siaga would be my first choice as an herbal supplement that could be the difference between life or death.

Bedsores

For people who have to spend long periods in bed need a good quality mattress that distributes body weight well. Keeping bedding dry is also important as moist skin will provide a good habitat for bacteria. Do no use laundry detergent and do not use fragrant rinses on bedding or on clothing that touch the skin. Replace your detergent with safe, non-toxic NVIRO All Purpose Cleaner from ShopFreeMart.

ShopFreeMart PureSilver can be applied directly to bedsores 1-4 times daily by applying drops from the dropper bottle and gently rubbing the silver across the sore, or mix 1 part PureSilver to 30 parts of distilled water in a spray bottle, then spray the bedsores before applying a sterile bandage moistened with ShopFreeMart PureSilver. You can expect to see improvement right away after you begin using PureSilver to kill the bacteria in a wound. Improvement in diabetics however may take two to three times longer because of circulation problems.

ShopFreeMart PureCopper can help improve circulation by improving the health of both the blood and blood vessels. One of the symptoms of copper deficiency is wounds that won't heal.

Staying well hydrated is also important in preventing and healing of bedsores. ShopFreeMart Happy Drops added to distilled drinking water should be given liberally to anyone suffering from bedsores.

Bentonite Clay

Bentonite, medicinal powdered clay which is also known as montmorillonite, derived from deposits of weathered volcanic ash.

It is one of the most effective natural intestinal detoxifying agents available and has been recognized as such for centuries by native peoples around the world. Whatever the name, liquid clay contains minerals that, once inside the gastrointestinal tract, are able to absorb toxins and deliver mineral nutrients to an impressive degree, says Knishinsky. Liquid clay is inert, which means it passes through the body undigested.

Technically, the clay first adsorbs toxins (heavy metals, free radicals, pesticides), attracting them to its extensive surface area where they adhere like flies to sticky paper; then it absorbs the toxins, taking them in the way a sponge mops up a kitchen counter mess.

There is an electrical aspect to bentonite's ability to bind and absorb toxins. According to Yerba Prima, a company based in Ashland, Oregon, which markets Great Plains' Bentonite, the clay's minerals are negatively charged while toxins tend to be positively charged; hence the clay's attraction works like a magnet drawing metal shavings. But it's even more involved than that.

Once hydrated (combined with water), Bentonite has an enormous surface area. According to Yerba Prima, a single quart bottle can represent a total surface area of 960 square yards or 12 American football fields. Bentonite is made of a great number of tiny platelets, with negative electrical charges on their flat surfaces and positive charges on their edges.

When bentonite absorbs water and swells, it is stretched open like a highly porous sponge; the toxins are drawn into these spaces by electrical attraction and bound fast. In fact, according to the Canadian Journal of Microbiology (31 [1985], 50-53), bentonite can absorb pathogenic viruses, aflatoxin (mold) and pesticides and herbicides, including Paraquat and Roundup. The clay is eventually eliminated from the body with the toxins bound to its multiple surfaces.

According to Sonne's Organic Foods of North Kansas City, Missouri, a company that markets Detoxificant (a liquid montmorillonite), "There is no evidence that bentonite has any chemical action in the body. Its power is purely physical."

Clay's adsorptive and absorptive qualities may be the key to its multifaceted healing abilities. Knishinsky reports that drinking clay helped him eliminate painful ganglion cysts (tumors attached to joints and tendons, in his case, his wrist) in two months, without surgery.

According to Knishinsky, benefits reported by people using liquid clay for a period of two to four weeks include: improved intestinal regularity; relief from chronic constipation, diarrhea, indigestion, and ulcers; a surge in physical energy; clearer complexion; brighter, whiter eyes; enhanced alertness; emotional uplift; improved tissue and gum repair; and increased resistance to infections. "Clay works on the entire organism. No part of the body is left untouched by its healing energies," he notes.

A medical study by Frederic Damrau, M.D., in 1961 (Medical Annals of the District of Columbia) established clearly that bentonite can end bouts of diarrhea. When 35 individuals (average age 51) suffering from diarrhea took two tablespoons of bentonite in distilled water daily, the diarrhea was relieved in 97% (34 of the 35 patients) in 3.8 days, regardless of the original cause of the problem (allergies, virus infection, spastic colitis, or food poisoning). According to Dr. Damrau, bentonite is "safe and highly effective" in treating acute diarrhea.

Knishinsky's research suggests that the regular intake of liquid clay (typically one to three tablespoons daily, in divided doses) can produce other benefits including parasite removal from the intestines, allergy and hay fever relief, and elimination of anemia and acne. For example, clay helps anemia because it contains both types of dietary iron (ferrous and ferric) in an easily assimilated form; it reduces discomfort from allergies by quickly neutralizing allergens that would otherwise produce allergic reactions; and it reduces heartburn and indigestion by absorbing excess stomach acids.

However, clay's forte is probably its role as a general internal detoxification and cleansing agent. According to Keith Payne of White Rock Mineral Corporation in Springville, Utah, clay scrapes and cleans the lining of the colon. "As the colon becomes cleaner, its ability to absorb minerals and other nutrients increases, making the minerals even more bioavailable, thus giving more energy."

White Rock's clay, called Bentonite Minerals, contains 71 trace and ultra-trace minerals, including many that are probably unknown to most consumers, such as ruthenium, tellurium, and thulium. Trace minerals enable the body to absorb nutrients"they are the bonding agents in and between you and food," explains Payne.

Bentonite Minerals are derived from an ancient seabed formation in Utah; according to geologists, the clay formed when a layer of volcanic ash fell into what was, long ago, a shallow inland sea. "As the ash filtered through the seawater, it collected pure minerals, forming a layer of highly mineralized clay," says Payne.

The best way to drink clay is on an empty stomach or at least an hour before or after a meal or immediately before sleeping at night, says Knishinsky. Typically, clay is available as a thick tasteless, pale-grey gel, but it also comes as a powder or encapsulated.

Generally, it is advisable to start with one tablespoon daily, mixed with a small amount of juice; observe the results for a week, then gradually increase the dosage to no more than four tablespoons daily, in divided doses. Drinking clay can be an annual spring cleaning of your gastrointestinal tract or it can be a symptom-focused, self-care method.

More About Bentonite:

Since bentonite has such strong absorptive powers, some may be concerned about whether it might absorb necessary nutrients from the alimentary canal as well. Experiments have shown that one would have to make bentonite clay 50% of their food/nutritional intake for it to be harmful to them.

It is important, however, not to take any nutritional supplement at the same time as the bentonite. Especially when used with psyllium, the bentonite will absorb anything of nutritional value such as herbs, friendly bacteria, and vitamins, as well as toxins, bad bacteria and parasites. Be sure to wait 1 hour after doing a bentonite drink before taking anything nutritional.

Scientific research has shown that bentonite's absorptive action is due to five characteristics. First, it has a large and varied mineral content. Second, it has a negative electrical attraction for positively-charged particles. Third, its particles (being shaped like calling cards), have the wide surfaces negative-polarized and the edges positive-polarized, which give it an incredible negative pulling power. Fourth, the very minuteness of the particles of bentonite gives a large surface area in proportion to the volume used, thus enabling it to pick up many times its own weight in positively-charged particles. Fifth, to obtain maximum effectiveness in the human body, it must be put in a liquid colloidal-gel state.

Though bentonite has been used internally by the American Indians for hundreds of years to help detoxify the bowels, Dr. Anderson recommends that when using it internally, we always use it with psyllium, as a psyllium shake. The reason for this is that some people fear that bentonite could get stuck in the gut. We do not know for certain if this has ever occurred with anyone, but just to be safe, use it with psyllium. Dr. Anderson suggests this because psyllium is known to help prevent undesirable inorganic minerals from entering the system. Dr. Anderson also explains that he has consumed as much as 1/4 cup of Hydrated Bentonite right out of the bottle many times. Why would he do this? Because he had eaten something that was contaminated. The bentonite eliminated the problem immediately.

Bentonite is known for its highly absorptive properties and its ability to draw out and bind heavy metals, drugs and other toxins from the body. This clay has been used for thousands of years as both an internal and external purification aid.

Bentonite is one of the volcanic ashes. It is not a drug or chemical composition made in a laboratory. It is a product of Mother Earth. Bentonite in ages past was blown into the sky by volcanic action, which sifted down to help impregnate the soil with its 25 to 35 trace minerals. Bentonite, under a high-power microscope, is seen as extremely minute rectangular particles, similar in shape to a business card. When hydrated, it generates and maintains a very strong electromagnetic field, which allows it to attract and hold unwanted , non-nutritive substances such as pesticides and other toxins so that they can be eliminated from the body.

Radiation:

Dr. Bernard Jensen, N.D., D.C., Ph.D., suggests using bentonite to absorb radiation from the bones. Since so many of us are subject to various forms of radiation, whether from X-rays or television or computers, this would be something to consider. This could be extremely important for those who have undergone radiation treatment for cancer. Some people take about a cup of extra thick liquid bentonite and put it into their bath water. Others have used a full quart and more. It is highly effective in drawing out toxins. But too much, or too long exposure, will dry out the skin.

Bentonite and Psyllium Drinks

Recipe for B&P's

Put the following ingredients into a glass

1 tbsp. liquid Bentonite Clay ('Innovite' brand)

1 tbsp. Whole Psyllium Husk (not powdered) I've been using 'Flora' brand, Indian Whole Psyllium Husk.

Then add a bit of cold water, (pure or filtered water) to make a paste. Fill glass up with water, stir. Drink quickly before it turns into oatmeal. Chase with another glass of water.

Day 1: Start with one drink in the morning upon waking. Keep a bottle of warm water by your side and drink lots in the morning with or without lemon juice to get your bowels started, naturally.

Day 2 and on: Basically, everyone is different. Some people can jump right in and within a few days be taking 4 B&P drinks a day. Others need to go slowly, starting with one for a few days, see how their bowels move and then add another one last thing before bed. The goal is to get up to between 3 and 5 a day.

Your first Bowel Cleanse using B&P's can be done for up to 6 months for your first bowel cleanse. You can eat normally, but well, during the Bowel Cleanse with Bentonite and Psyllium and get out lots of mucoid plaque. It's best to try to avoid mucoid-forming foods like meats, white bread, sugar, dairy.

The Key: is to drink the B&P drinks on an empty stomach. You must not eat for one hour before taking the drink and one hour after drinking the drink. That is very important. The Bentonite Clay needs to absorb toxins and the Psyllium husks need to scrub out the corners of your intestines all by themselves. Food will interrupt their work!

One must drink lots of warm water while doing the B&P bowel cleanse - to ensure that you don't get constipated. Remember that warm water stimulates peristalsis (the bowels) and cold water doesn't. Drink at least 2 quarts of warm water a day or half your body weight in ounces per day.

Tools of the Trade

Many people will be grossed out by this idea. But if you can't see what you're eliminating, then there's no reward! The investigative type might want to place an old colander in their toilet and eliminate into that. Then take your chopstick and check it out.

Most likely when you get up to taking at least 3 b&p drinks a day, for a few days in a row, you will be passing what is known as: mucoid plaque. This is the old, putrefied, toxic fecal matter that is stuck to the corners of your colon and small intestine. Mucoid plaque forming foods are: milk, wheat and meat. So unless you have never eaten those foods, you will have mucoid plaque.

Mucoid plaque comes in all shapes and sizes depending from what area in your GI tract it's from. Some of it looks like 'ropes' - disc and balls held together by a 'string'. These ropes can get quite long! Beware! Depending on one's diet these can be medium brown (vegetarians) to black - some people have mixed green in them. They are quite rubbery and strange.

Colonics (professional enema) will also get this rubbery old fecal matter out as well. It just seems pretty easy to get it out with the bentonite and psyllium husks. The B&P's really do the trick! People have found all sorts of things in their bowel movements like coins, crayons and other things that have been there since childhood!

Once all this stuff is out, you will be able to absorb nutrients efficiently, feel great, more energized, allergies can go away. This can cure many ailments.

While doing this cleanse it is helpful to imagine that with each elimination you are getting rid of old outworn, un-needed thoughts, ideas and feelings.

Black Mold

Black mold is a fungus or yeast that grows in wet areas of the home like showers or walls. The mold will release spores into the air. If these spores reach your lungs, they will produce asthma- and chronic fatigue-like symptoms.

To remove the mold, mix one dropper of ShopFreeMart PureSilver per each ounce of water that you add to a spray bottle, then spray it on the mold and let it stand for 10 minutes before wiping it off. This will destroy the mold and likely prevent it from re-growing.

Fungus and mold grow in warm, moist, and sugared areas such as the intestines or vagina. Taking sugar out of your diet and using silver both topically and internally can treat these. Take 2-3 droppers of PureSilver 3x daily and apply it topically 3-4x daily, if needed. This dosage should be continued for at least two weeks longer than symptoms are present.

Mold and yeast can be cleared up by taking 2-3 droppers of Pure Silver 3x daily. You may need to continue this treatment for a period of up to 6 weeks to completely eradicate the mold.

It is also recommended that you add one dropper of ShopFreeMart PureSilver to 1-2 TBs. of distilled water and put it into a nebulizer to be inhaled for 15-30 minutes. This procedure can be repeated 2-4 times daily as needed to get the PureSilver in direct contact with the mold, which will kill the mold spores.

Regular use of ShopFreeMart and Immunize can help to strengthen the immune system and also reduce the chance of mold and fungus passing from the intestines into the blood stream.

Bladder Infection

Urine remains in the bladder for about six hours before it is drained. If bacteria get into the bladder, they will duplicate every 20 minutes - a bladder infection can become serious very quickly. The infection will degrade the lining of the bladder and possibly travel up the tubes from the bladder to the kidneys, causing a kidney infection.

To treat a bladder infection, 1-2 droppers of Pure Silver should be taken hourly for the first two days. For the next two weeks, take 1-2 droppers 3x daily. You should expect to destroy the bladder infection within the first 12 to 24 hours.

Pure Silver liquid can be taken with cranberry juice or juniper berries.

Blood Circulation

Slow circulation is a common problem. This is often due to blood cells clumping together like a logjam in a river. You may have a dozen or more blood cells trying to pass through blood vessels where only one cell was designed to fit.

Rouleaux is a medical term for a condition wherein the blood cells clump together forming what looks like stacks of coins or clumps of deflated soccer balls. This is an unhealthy state because the cells are not free to absorb and carry oxygen. It is a pre-cursor to many serious diseases. Blood cells will begin to separate within just minutes of taking ShopFreeMart PureCopper and Siaga together with Hydration Drops, help the blood to circulate more efficiently and carry more oxygen and nutrition to the cells.

When you were born, your blood cells were plump like big juicy grapes. When blood cells dehydrate, they are much like a car with a flat tire. They simply can't move around or function normally. ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops will plump up your cells faster than any other substance that we know of.

Proper blood circulation is responsible for moving nutrients, Oxygen and wastes to and from cells, and helps stabilize body temperature and pH to maintain harmony. Getting your cells hydrated with ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops addresses all of these issues.

The heart acts as a pump, keeping the blood flowing to the lungs to get oxygenated, and then carrying it to the organs, then carrying de-oxygenated blood back to the lungs to get oxygenated again. When circulation is compromised, oxygen and nutrition does not reach all of the organs and areas it needs to and your health suffers as a result.

The lymphatic circulatory system is also very important to health as it is an integral part of the immune system and is dependent upon a healthy blood circulatory system and exercise to carry out its function. ShopFreeMart Siaga and Pure Nature Nutrients support a healthy lymphatic system.

Certain lifestyle habits can lead to poor circulation such as diet, smoking, and lack of exercise to name a few. Other conditions that can lead to poor circulation are diabetes, arthritis and obesity.

Poor Circulation can cause other conditions:

Dark circles under the eyes

Cold feet and hands

Itching

Eye problems

Vertigo - dizziness

Muscle cramps

Numbness

Leg ulcers

Boils

Blood clots

Carpal tunnel

Chilblains

Hemorrhoids

Raynaud's disease

Varicose veins

Cardiovascular disease

Memory loss

Tingling in hands and feet

Pain symptoms

Blue or pale skin

Poor circulation can be found in any part of the body, particularly the hands, feet and face. There are many causes of poor circulation, which include heart disorders, blood vessel disorders, anemia and varicose veins. Most often the symptoms of circulatory problems are localized to the area where there is an insufficient amount of blood supply.

When experiencing poor blood circulation, cuts and other open wounds may take longer to heal. This means scabs can take longer to form and some wounds might need medical attention when it otherwise would not be necessary.

Experiencing a tingling sensation like pins and needles in the hands and feet can be a symptom of circulatory problems, especially if the pain does not subside after stretching or moving around.

Vertebrobasilar Circulatory Disorder occurs when blood does not properly flow to the back of the brain. Symptoms include having trouble walking or keeping balance, not being able to swallow easily, double vision, headaches and slurred speech.

If you are having a hard time healing, experiencing blueness or pallor of the skin, or are experiencing hands and feet that are always cold even at a comfortable temperature, you may have blood circulation problems.

Underactive thyroid can also be the cause of poor circulation. (See Thyroid)

Be informed about drugs that help improve circulation. They are always harmful. Coumadin for example is the active ingredient in rat poison. It thins the blood causing rats to hemorrhage and bleed to death.

How to improve your circulation:

Following a healthy lifestyle is one of the best ways to promote and maintain circulatory health. Eating a high fiber and low fat diet will help keep blood flowing. Getting regular exercise, maintaining a healthy weight, and quitting smoking will also be helpful.

Tips for the Prevention of Poor Circulation:

Drink plenty of water, at least eight glasses a day for proper hydration.

Eat green, leafy vegetables, fruit, whole grains, legumes, fish and poultry in small portions.

Limit sugar, alcohol, protein, dairy products and refined white flour products such as pasta.

Drink lemonade with real lemon juice - lemon juice contains citrate that helps circulation.

Regular physical exercise helps improve circulation.

Foods That Improve Circulation:

Fruits and vegetables of any kind are good for circulation, particularly oranges, which provide high levels of bioflavonoids that promote blood flow while also strengthening capillaries. ShopFreeMart Pure Magnesium may help repair the endothelium of the blood vessels and prevent plaque buildup (a common hindrance to blood flow) which may improve circulation.

B Vitamins found in most nuts, help boost the blood. (Avoid peanuts, as they are high in mold content)

Garlic also helps promote circulation.

Avoid saturated and trans fats, as well as sweetened sodas or fruit drinks.

These simple changes in lifestyle support better circulation.

Contrary to popular opinion, reducing salt intake does not improve the health of the heart or the circulatory system. A new study found that low-salt diets increase the risk of death from heart attacks and strokes and do not prevent high blood pressure.

I recommend a minimum of at least ½ tsp. of salt daily, but it should be from a good source like Redmond Salt or Himalayan Salt available at most health food stores or can be purchased at www.realsalt.com. (See Salt)

ShopFreeMart PureCopper and Siaga help regenerate red blood cells and stimulate production of T-lymphocytes or white blood cells.

ShopFreeMart Pure Magnesium can help strengthen the entire cardiovascular system. Most heart attacks would be prevented if people had plenty of magnesium in their heart cells.

ShopFreeMart and PureCopper help to eliminate many free radicals, toxins and other pathogens that may be the cause of slow circulation. Regular use of ShopFreeMart Pure Nature Nutrients can also strengthen the immune system, helping to ward off disease-causing organisms.

If you are currently taking prescription drugs for circulation, consult with your physician when making lifestyle changes as the medications you are taking will frequently need to be reduced because your circulation may return to normal after you begin to correct the causes of your circulatory problem.

Blood Cleanser

Bacteria, viruses, yeast, parasites, and other toxins can get inside our blood. Pure Silver is one of the best tools for blood cleansing. It will enter a single red blood cell and cleanse at the cellular level.

For acute blood cleansing, take one dropper of ShopFreeMart PureSilver every hour (9x daily) for three days, followed by 1 dropper 3x daily for maintenance.

ShopFreeMart PureCopper and Siaga support healthy blood from many angles and are especially good in helping the body cleanse the blood, which can often lead to clearing up acne and boils, which is a good indicator of blood cleansing.

BPA's

The government lie that the plastics chemical bisphenol-A (BPA) is neither harmful nor persistent in humans at current exposure levels has been completely debunked in a new research published in the peer-reviewed journal Environmental Science & Technology. This latest assessment of fetal exposure to BPA has concluded that 100 percent of both young and unborn children now have BPA circulating in their bloodstreams, suggesting universal exposure to this dangerous toxin.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) claims that BPA is fully metabolized by the liver upon exposure and thus rendered harmless, but actual science reveals quite the contrary as BPA typically ends up circulating in the bloodstream and manifesting itself in multiple toxic forms based upon using the latest in laboratory analysis techniques.

Additionally, umbilical cord blood samples were taken from 85 full-term, aborted babies in San Francisco and tested for BPA. The samples were found to contain both active BPA and various BPA metabolites. In three of the samples, BPA levels were detected at levels higher than have ever been detected in fetal blood tests. And for the first time ever, BPA sulfate, a metabolite of active BPA, was also found in cord blood samples, which came as a surprise to researchers.

"Our findings suggest universal fetal exposure to BPA in our study population, with some at relatively high levels, and we provide the evidence of detectable BPA sulfate in mid-gestation fetuses," wrote the scientists in their report. "Our median BPA levels are similar to those measured in term umbilical cord serum from larger studies, however the concentrations of BPA in our study include the highest levels reported to date."

BPA is likely responsible for epidemic of neurological, hormonal problems in children. The reason this is such a big deal is that BPA in its active form is a highly estrogenic substance. Previous studies have also found that the chemical can cause serious neurological damage and behavioral problems, particularly in young children and especially in young males. BPA's estrogenic nature can severely disrupt the endocrine system, potentially causing low testosterone and other hormonal imbalances.

This latest study is the first of its kind to test mid-gestation blood samples for BPA. Previous studies have looked at blood samples taken from pregnant women, including from their amniotic fluid, placenta and cord blood, and found high percentages of BPA. But this study went a step further, proving that BPA is indeed present in human blood, and that this is not the result of testing errors or outside contamination.

"These results should go a long way toward dispelling the myth that all BPA in human blood is the result of accidental contamination during sampling," said Laura Vandenberg, a scientist at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, referring to ridiculous claims made by some that detectable levels of BPA in blood samples must be due to laboratory contamination.

Since we now know that BPA persists in multiple active forms inside the body, and that it can be absorbed directly through the skin, the long-term implications for the health of future generations, including proper childhood development, appear dire. Recognizing this, many experts are now calling for a full ban on BPA, which is still added to metal food can linings, thermal paper receipts, plastic containers and a number of other consumer products that millions of people come into contact with every single day.

Buying food items, water and other drinks in plastic should be avoided as BPA's readily leach into whatever it contains. When purchasing water, it should be in glass or plastic containers that do not contain BPA's, like the blue plastic water bottles.

Taking ShopFreeMart Pure Gold regularly may help remove BPA's and keep them at a minimum level in the body, but with so many toxins to remove on a daily basis, the first line of defense is avoidance.

Body Odor

Since bacteria cause most body odors, Pure Silver can help control the production of the odor. Spray or apply Pure Silver to the affected area and take 1-2 droppers of Pure Silver 2x daily. This can also help with bad breath.

Using salt in place of soap to bathe can also help reduce body odor. Body odor can also result from too little sodium in the diet. (See Salt)

Body odor is also connected to diet. Acid foods and drinks are a primary cause of body odor. (See Diet)

People with excessive body odor are also lacking minerals. ShopFreeMart PureCopper and Siaga may help to reduce body odor. I personally have put ShopFreeMart NVIRO soap directly on my feet like a lotion, which eliminated foot odor immediately.

Boils

Boils occur when bacteria or viruses duplicate under the skin, destroying the healthy tissue. The duplication produces a pustule, which is similar to cystic acne, only it doesn't need a hair follicle or sebaceous gland to get down into the skin. Boils can be caused by simple irritations such as the rubbing of a belt on the skin or agitation on the side of a foot.

Applying Pure Silver topically 4 or more times daily can treat a boil. In some cases, you may want to cover the boil with a gauze bandage soaked in silver. In addition, you will want to take 1-2 droppers of Pure Silver 2x daily.

When Pure Silver contacts the bacteria, boil growth with stop. Within about two hours you'll feel inflammation reduction. You will see improvement of the boil within four hours.

ShopFreeMart PureCopper and Siaga support beautiful skin and can help reduce boils. They also eliminate many free radicals, toxins and other pathogens that may be the cause of boils. Regular use of ShopFreeMart Pure Nature Nutrients can also strengthen the immune system, helping to ward off disease-causing microorganisms.

ShopFreeMart PureCopper and Siaga together with Hydration Drops is unparalleled in my opinion, when it comes to supporting the body to cleanse the blood and clear up boils.

Bones

Bones can have a number of problems - breaks, infections, stoppage in the production of bone marrow and red blood cells - and pain is almost always associated with these problems. Pure Silver liquid taken on a daily basis can help reduce the bacteria, virus, and mold within the system, thus reducing the impact on the bones.

ShopFreeMart PureSilver can help reduce the infection rate associated with broken bones or compound fractures, allowing the immune system to repair the bone much more quickly. ShopFreeMart Pure Magnesium may also be used. Most people have enough Calcium, but they are lacking Magnesium, which makes for much slower repair of breaks in bones.

Kidney disease includes conditions that decrease their ability to remove toxins and keep you healthy. Wastes can build to high levels in your blood, causing the overgrowth of bacteria and weak bones if not treated. See Kidney Disease

Bowels

Bowels can have a lot of problems - from constipation and colitis to infections, diarrhea, and yeast infections. Taking 1-2 droppers of Pure Silver 3x daily can help destroy the bacteria and yeast that cause many of these problems. You should expect to see benefits within the first two days.

Regularly drinking ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops supports normal bowel movements and removal of toxins from the intestinal tract.

Why Cleanse the Bowel?

A good cleansing program should always begin by removing the waste in your colon, the last portion of your food processing chain. If you attempt to clean your liver, blood, or lymph system without first addressing a waste filled bowel, the excreted toxins will only get recycled back into your body.

Once we truly understand the "single greatest challenge our body faces is the effective removal of wastes and toxins", we will never again undermine the importance of frequent and normal bowel movements.

Gastroenterologist, Dr. Anthony Bassler, tells his colleagues, "Every physician should realize that the intestinal toxemias (poisons) are the most important primary and contributing causes of many disorders and the diseases of the human body."

Once the bowel is clean you will be able to absorb nutrients again! Many people experience more energy and a sense of general well-being after cleaning their bowel out. Apparently 90% of the body's supply of Seratonin (happiness chemical) is synthesized in the Gastrointestinal Tract - so by cleaning the toxins and ancient fecal matter out of your GI tract you will be happier, too, as you will be able to synthesize seratonin more efficiently!

Breathing Exercises

by John Austin

Here is some exciting breakthrough news regarding Cancer and all other diseases. This information is in regards to Oxygen and how you can quickly have 12 times more Oxygen going through your bloodstream and reaching every cell in your body. This was scientifically documented at a major University in Utah.

As I have pointed out in talking about the "cause" of disease in other topics on this website, diseases cannot exist in the presence of high levels of Oxygen.

To preface what I am about to tell you, I have a doctor friend who now lives out of the country because his life was being threatened as a result of the amazing recoveries his patients were experiencing. He had a clinic in Arizona where he treated people from all over the country.

His latest and most effective therapy was in combining together enough Oxygen Generators to produce ten cubic feet of oxygen per minute. (Less than this amount did not produce results) He had his patients breathe pure oxygen deeply while exercising for fifteen minutes. Note: There are some dangers, so do not try this without the help of someone who is trained in this kind of therapy.

Typically, these patients saw immediate improvement and within two weeks, many diseases had completely disappeared along with their associated pain and he told me that his patients were starting to look like they had received a face lift. This therapy however, was rather costly and people had to physically visit his office in order to use it. Now they have to travel outside of the country in order to take this therapy, which many people still do.

I tried this myself, but then I found something that costs nothing and actually works better. I was introduced to this new method by another friend who is a scientist, exercise physiologist, certified trainer, nutritionist and natural healer. She is the founder and developer of this method of breathing, which provides all of the benefits that the patients of my doctor friend were receiving and even more. This is a 5-minute therapy that can be done once daily (or multiple times for faster results) in the comfort of your own home and you will start seeing results starting the very first day.

For example, one 95 year old Cancer patient was curled up in a fetal position in excruciating pain and was so close to death that her eyes were glazed over. She needed helped to even start the therapy, but she began responding with the very first treatment. Within 2 weeks she was up taking care of herself and went on to experience a full recovery.

This therapy was tested independently by scientists at the University of Utah. The published reports say that people who are overweight will experience 21x the weight loss they would receive as a result of intensive weight training. This therapy was shown to burn as much as 7,000 calories in one workout. One person lost seven pounds from one session because of the increased calorie burn over a 24-hour period.

On the other hand, many people, including some cancer patients need to gain weight. This therapy will build 6x more lean muscle and also increase bone density faster than intensive weight training. People who have tried to gain weight without success can now see muscle tissue and weight return to normal.

Those suffering from Osteoporosis and weak bones will also see their bone density and strength return.

Users of this exercise have said that it completely eliminated Cancer, Leukemia, Emphysema, COPD, Asthma, Sleep Apnea, Chronic Pain, completely regenerate blackened smokers lung, made them look and feel years younger, gave them instant and lasting energy and made them sleep better.

This therapy also produces 12x more flexibility than Yoga and Martial Arts Training. But what is most exciting to many people is the fact that it takes away wrinkles and makes you look and feel years younger. I believe that the "youthing" effect is due to the fact that this therapy naturally increases and balances the body's hormone levels.

Another important thing is how quickly this exercise produces endorphins. Endorphins are endogenous opioid peptides that function as neurotransmitters. They are produced by the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus in vertebrates during exercise and they resemble opiates in their ability to produce analgesia and a feeling of well-being.

These brain chemicals bring feelings of calmness and tranquility and are natural pain killers. They help increase circulation; help the body to heal faster and give and overall sense of well-being. Endorphins also give you a sense of power and control over problems and situations.

The endorphin rush that is experienced from long distance running and aerobic workouts is greatly desirable, so much so that millions of people perform strenuous physical exercises daily to achieve what is commonly referred to as the "runners high."

With one simple exercise, you can produce more endorphins in 5-minutes than you can produce in 5-miles of running. The beauty is you can do this exercise anytime you feel like you need a boost in energy, mental clarity or control over some problem.

If you fully understood the benefits of endorphins alone, you would take the necessary few minutes each day to perform this workout.

Oxygen is the spark of life and just as a fire can't burn without oxygen, our cells can't produce heat and energy without oxygen. Oxygen is extracted from the air we breathe by the lungs. It passes into the blood vessels that surround the lungs and is carried to all the cells of the body by the blood. Most of the oxygen is carried by the red blood cells, although the water in the blood carries some of it and a deficiency of water means reduced oxygen delivery by the blood. Oxygen is so important, that even where optimum water, protein, vitamin and mineral intake exists, ill health will still exist if there is an oxygen deficiency.

Oxygen levels in the atmosphere are believed to have been as high as 50% at one time. Today the oxygen level is about 20% and will continue to drop as major rain forests continue to be cut down and reduced oxygen levels are a major cause of disease.

Unfortunately most people breathe shallowly and under-breathing is epidemic among adults, which is another major cause of oxygen deficiency in adults.

Shallow breathing is often related to stress, and tight clothing coupled with a lifetime of rushing to and fro, sitting hunched over desks and working or playing on computers produces stress.

The mechanics of breathing determines oxygen supply. Shallow chest breathing gives rise to oxygen deficiencies, as there are very few blood vessels surrounding the upper lobes of the lungs. Most of the blood vessels are found in the lower lobes of the lung, so deep, abdominal breathing is the answer to optimum oxygen levels.

Babies don't chest breathe. They are so relaxed that they breathe easily and deeply and their tummies rise and fall to the rhythm of their breathing. Shallow chest breathing is a bad habit we develop as we move towards adulthood; however it's a habit that can easily be unlearned by practicing deep breathing exercises and by slowing down.

If you want to burn lots of calories or build muscle, then you will want to combine some form of strenuous exercise or weight training with the breathing exercises.

You may think that you need a video or a coach to show you how to do these exercises correctly, but that is not the case. You will however want to read the following section again before doing the exercises the next time, because you will pick up little points each time you read these instructions that will improve the results you will receive.

To get the feeling of how to breathe correctly, lay flat on your back and imagine a nose connected to the back of your spine directly opposite, or slightly below your belly button. Put one hand on your chest and the other hand on your abdomen. Imagine breathing in through the nose connected to your spine and then take a large breath as quickly as you can. Your abdomen should rise, but your chest should not move.

Practice breathing in this manner until it becomes natural and until you can do so without a lot of mental effort.

You can actually do the breathing part sitting on a chair with your back erect; however you will burn a lot more calories if you add some muscle burn to the breathing. You can combine the breathing with any kind of strenuous exercise, but perhaps the best exercise for the largest number of people is what we call the "horse stance" in martial arts. (In my younger years, I owned my own karate dojo and was a martial arts instructor.)

The horse stance exercises the largest muscle group in the legs and burns a lot of calories quickly. A person, for example, that is practiced in Tai Chi can go outside, scantily dressed in cold weather and by simply standing in a horse stance will soon have sweat rolling off their brow.

To begin with, stand with your feet shoulder width (or slightly more) apart. Your feet should be parallel or even slightly pigeon toed. Next lower your butt toward the floor as if you were sitting on a horse. At all times keep your back straight, or in other words do not lean forward.

This is not a competition, so do what is comfortable for you. You will however quickly notice some burning sensation in your legs because you are exercising muscles you don't normally use. Ignore the pain as it will pay some great dividends in the end. In time, you will be able to squat lower and burn more calories even faster.

While standing in the horse stance, exhale all of the air in your lungs. Again, you are going to be exercising some new muscles and with time these muscles will grow stronger, which means that you will increase the oxygen levels in your lungs and blood 24-hours a day.

After forcing out all of the air you can possibly exhale, imagine having been underwater for 3 minutes and you are about to expire and you finally get your head above water; you are going to suck in the air with all of the force you can muster. In this manner breathe in through your nose and fill the lungs to capacity. If you inhale with enough force, it will partially close off the nose opening and may even cause the nose to rattle, like a child snuffing his or her nose.

As you practice doing this daily, your lungs will grow much stronger and you will be able to inhale even more forcefully. The amount of force you use when inhaling is "directly" proportional to the amount of oxygen you will be putting into your blood stream. It is also proportional to the amount of endorphins your body will produce. If done correctly, you can produce more endorphins in 5-minutes of breathing than you can produce in a 5-mile run.

The endorphins produced by breathing will stay with you a lot longer, because when running, your body produces uric acid, which in less than two hours will neutralize all of the endorphins that you may have produced while running.

If you are suffering from any kind of pain, you will want all of the endorphins you can get, because not only are they a powerful pain killer, they also help the body to heal faster than any other natural substance.

Now your lungs are filled with every drop of air that you could possibly suck in. Hold your breath as long as you can. In the beginning, this may only be for a short time, but as your lungs grow stronger, your ability to hold longer will greatly increase. This is a sign that your lungs are growing much stronger.

When you are ready to exhale, press your lips tightly together, so as to make it more difficult to exhale. Now blow hard like you are blowing a trumpet or trying to blow up a balloon. When you have exhaled approximately one third of your air, open your mouth as wide as you can and force the remaining air out of your lungs.

Coughing while exhaling the last two thirds of the air from your lungs will also be helpful as it exercises your diaphragm and also strengthens your heart. Tighten every muscle in your lungs and abdomen and force out every drop of air that you possibly can. This will burn toxins and fat and get them out of your body faster than any other detox program and this form of detoxification will not make you sick the same as many others will.

Now that your lungs are completely empty, close off the mouth and nose and try to breathe in. This will create a vacuum in your lungs and when done correctly, you will notice that your diaphragm and the soft tissue around your Adam's apple will cave in slightly from the vacuum created.

This vacuum will cause all kinds of toxins and gases to be pulled out of the surrounding tissues into the lungs, where they will be burned and exhaled on the succeeding cycle of breathing.

This completes one cycle of breathing and the goal is to work up to five complete cycles per session. If you are a beginner, you may want to stop at this point and just do one cycle at a time three or more times throughout the day. Just one set of five cycles will greatly increase oxygen to your blood and cells and step up your metabolism for faster weight gain. Those who are serious about improving health, losing weight or increasing muscle mass will to do three or more sets of these exercises daily.

After exhaling and holding your breath in a vacuum as long as you comfortably can, you can either rest by breathing normally for a few breaths, or you can go directly into the second cycle by breathing in to capacity with all of the force you can muster.

Beginners will find it difficult to go directly into the second cycle without resting, but as your lungs grow stronger, you will eventually be able to do 5 cycles in a row with no problem.

After completing the 5 cycles, you will have more oxygen in your blood than you have had for years. If you are an athlete in training or you just want to go to the next level in fitness or weight loss, you can at this time do your weight training, pushups, yoga, martial arts, etc. You will notice an increase in strength, repetitions, flexibility and endurance.

One person used this form of training to win first place in a triathlon without running, swimming or cycling as part of their preparation.

Recap:

Stand in a horse stance

Exhale all of the air in your lungs through your mouth

Try to inhale with your nose and mouth sealed shut; this puts your lungs in a vacuum and draws toxins out of your blood even faster

Inhale to capacity with all of the force you can possibly muster

Hold as long as you comfortably can

Blow out the first third of your air through lips that are tightly held together

Open the mouth wide and force out all of the remaining air while coughing

Seal the airway and try to breathe in creating a vacuum

Hold as long as you comfortably can

Either relax and breathe normally for a short time or go directly into the second round of breathing exercise

Work up to five cycles per session

Repeat 3 or more times later in the day for maximum result

Many people will start coughing up a lot of phlegm, which is merely the body now getting enough oxygen to start the detoxification of the body. In time the lungs will clear up and other problems will also begin to disappear.

More oxygen in your blood will begin to turn around every single health challenge you might have because disease cannot live in the presence of oxygen. I helped over 1,000 people recover from cancer naturally and increasing oxygen levels was a major part of my program.

These exercises are an integral part of regaining and maintaining perfect health and should be practiced daily accompanied by proper diet, supplements and increased fluid intake in the form of pure water, because oxygen alone does not provide the other necessary building blocks that create a healthy, beautiful body. Oxygen only allows them to accomplish their individual roles within the cells.

Bronchitis

Bronchitis can be bacterial or a virus that causes the inflammation of the bronchioles - the tubes that pass air from the throat down into the lungs. Bronchitis results in excess mucus production, clogged lungs, and coughing.

Bronchitis can be cleared up by taking 2-3 droppers of PureSilver 3x daily until symptoms are gone and by mixing one dropper of PureSilver to 1-2 TBs. of distilled water in a nebulizer to be inhaled for 15-30 minutes. This procedure can be repeated 2-4 times daily as needed to reduce congestion.

You can also add 3 droppers of PureSilver for each ounce of purified water that you put into an intra-nasal sprayer and spray this mixture into the nose as often as is needed for congestion.

For those living, working, or traveling with someone with bronchitis, spray PureSilver into the nose with an intra-nasal sprayer for prevention.

A cellular cleanse will prevent toxins and bacteria and viruses from gaining access to the blood stream. ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops and ShopFreeMart Pure Gold are the best cellular cleansers that I know of. Replace your sweetened beverages with 6 drops of Hydration Drops added to each gallon of purified water and drink all throughout the day.

Add 1 oz. of ShopFreeMart PureGold to one gallon of distilled water in a glass jar. I recommend glass because most plastic jugs contain harmful BPA's and gold literally sucks these chemicals out of the plastic and carries them into your body. If you don't have access to distilled water or a glass jug, then use Crystal Geyser water from the Dollar Store. Crystal Geyser uses a BPA free plastic. You can tell by the triangle on the bottom of the jug with the number 1 in the middle.

Drink 8-12 oz. of the PureGold and water mixture first thing in the morning on an empty stomach until gone and then wait for 1/2 hour before eating or drinking anything else. When that is gone you can take 1-2 droppers of PureGold under the tongue each morning and hold for a few minutes before swallowing and follow that with a glass of diluted Hydration Drops.

ShopFreeMart Siaga can help strengthen the lungs and bronchial tubes and it also eliminates free radicals, toxins and other pathogens that may be the cause of bronchitis. Regular use of ShopFreeMart Pure Nature Nutrients can also strengthen the immune system, helping to ward off disease-causing organisms.

Burns

Burns occur from the sun, radiation, x-rays, fire, heat, and from other chemicals in our environment. Pure Silver is at its very best when it's used to treat a burn. It reduces pain and inflammation and improves wound healing. Pure Silver liquid can be frequently sprayed on the burn or used to soak the burn. A significant reduction in pain, inflammation and tissue damage will be visible in the first hour.

Pure Silver will get into the wound very quickly and kill bacteria that causes infection, scarring and prevents healing, but needs to be reapplied every few hours. Take 1-2 droppers of ShopFreeMart PureSilver 3x daily until the burn is gone.

ShopFreeMart PureGold helps repair DNA, which helps to properly replicate all of the cells in the body including bone, cartilage, muscles, skin, organs and nerves. Siaga is also very helpful in cell regeneration.

A woman's experience with burns:

Some time ago I was cooking some corn and stuck my fork in the boiling water to see if the corn was ready. I missed and my hand went into the boiling water. A friend of mine, who was a Vietnam vet, came into the house, just as I was screaming and asked me if I had some plain old flour. I pulled out a bag and he stuck my hand in it. He told me to keep my hand in the flour for 10 minutes which I did. He said that in Vietnam, there was a guy on fire and in their panic, they threw a bag of flour all over him to put the fire out. As it turned out, it not only put the fire out, but he never even had a blister!

Long story short, I put my hand in the bag of flour for 10 minutes, pulled it out and did not even have a red mark or a blister and absolutely NO PAIN. Now, I keep a bag of flour in the fridge and every time I burn myself, I go for the flour. And I discovered that "cold" flour feels even better on a burn than flour at room temperature.

I use the flour several times and have never ONCE had even a red spot, scar or blister! I even burnt my tongue once, put the flour on it for about 10 minutes; the pain was gone and no burn.

BTW, don't run your burn area under cold water first; just put it directly into the flour for 10 minutes. Keep a bag of flour in your fridge and you will be happy you did!

My personal experience:

Years ago, my five-year-old daughter was trying to remove a pan of boiling water from the stove and spilled it across her shoulder and down her chest. Almost immediately a large patch of skin about 9 inches in diameter sloughed off from her chest. She was in a lot of pain and the normal thing to do would be to rush her to the emergency room.

Instead we applied an alkaline mineral gel to neutralize the "acid" pain. Immediately the pain subsided and by the following day, she was pain free as long as she didn't touch it. Within two weeks she was completely healed with new skin and absolutely no scarring.

The "alkaline" minerals in the product we used, neutralized the acid that causes the pain following being burned and it also killed any bacteria that may have otherwise infected the burned area, which allowed the area to heal quickly, without scarring.

Buzzard, Bat and Bumblebee

THE BUZZARD: If you put a buzzard in a pen that is 6 feet by 8 feet and is entirely open at the top, the bird, in spite of its ability to fly, will be an absolute prisoner. The reason is that a buzzard always begins a flight from the ground with a run of 10 to 12 feet. Without space to run, as is its habit, it will not even attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner for life in a small jail with no top.

THE BAT: The ordinary bat that flies around at night, a remarkable nimble creature in the air, cannot take off from a level place. If it is placed on the floor or flat ground, all it can do is shuffle about helplessly and, no doubt, painfully, until it reaches some slight elevation from which it can throw itself into the air. Then, at once, it takes off like a flash.

THE BUMBLEBEE: A bumblebee, if dropped into an open tumbler, will be there until it dies, unless it is taken out. It never sees the means of escape at the top, but persists in trying to find some way out through the sides near the bottom. It will seek a way where none exists, until it completely destroys itself.

PEOPLE: In many ways, we are like the buzzard, the bat, and the bumblebee. They struggle about with all their problems and frustrations, never realizing that all they have to do is look up!

Sorrow looks back, Worry looks around, but Faith looks up!

Calcium

Calcium requirement for men and women is lower than previously estimated.
US Department of Agriculture

Experts say excessive calcium intake may be unwise in light of recent studies showing that high amounts of the mineral may increase risk of prostate cancer. "There is reasonable evidence to suggest that calcium may play an important role in the development of prostate cancer," says Dr. Carmen Rodriguez, senior epidemiologist in the epidemiology and surveillance research department of the American Cancer Society (ACS).

Rodriguez says that a 1998 Harvard School of Public Health study of 47,781 men found those consuming between 1,500 and 1,999 mg of calcium per day had about double the risk of being diagnosed with metastatic (cancer that has spread to other parts of the body) prostate cancer as those getting 500 mg per day or less. And those taking in 2,000 mg or more had over four times the risk of developing metastatic prostate cancer as those taking in less than 500 mg.

Later in 1998, Harvard researchers published a study of dairy product intake among 526 men diagnosed with prostate cancer and 536 similar men not diagnosed with the disease. They found a 50% increase in prostate cancer risk and a near doubling of risk of metastatic prostate cancer among men consuming high amounts of dairy products, likely due, say the researchers, to the high total amount of calcium in such a diet. The most recent Harvard study on the topic, published in October 2001, looked at dairy product intake among 20,885 men and found men consuming the most dairy products had about 32% higher risk of developing prostate cancer than those consuming the least.

The adverse effects of excessive calcium intake may include high blood calcium levels, kidney stone formation and kidney complications. Elevated calcium levels are also associated with arthritic/joint and vascular degeneration, calcification of soft tissue, hypertension and stroke, increase in VLDL triglycerides, gastrointestinal disturbances, mood and depressive disorders, chronic fatigue, and general mineral imbalances including magnesium, zinc, iron and phosphorus. High calcium levels interfere with Vitamin D and subsequently inhibit the vitamin's cancer protective effect unless extra amounts of Vitamin D are supplemented.

Magnesium is the mineral of rejuvenation and prevents the calcification of our organs and tissues that is characteristic of the old-age related degeneration of our body. Calcium and magnesium are opposites in their effects on our body structure. As a general rule, the more rigid and inflexible our body structure is, the less calcium and the more magnesium we need.

Past recommendations of ratios of magnesium to calcium were generally one part magnesium to two parts calcium. However, for those interested in preventing cancer one should look closely at the 3:1 ratio and during the first six months of cancer treatment, one should be looking at ten parts magnesium to one part calcium. In reality one need not even count the ratio during the first months for the only real danger of extremely high magnesium levels comes with patients suffering from kidney failure. If one is at all concerned about their calcium intake one should eat foods high in both calcium and magnesium like green leafy vegetables and toasted sesame seeds. I particularly recommend Silverbeet.

Magnesium has a central regulatory role in the cell cycle including that of affecting transphorylation and DNA synthesis, and has been proposed as the controller of cell growth, rather than calcium.

Medical wisdom tells us that magnesium is actually the key to the body's proper assimilation and use of calcium, as well as other important nutrients. If we consume too much calcium without sufficient magnesium, the excess calcium is not utilized correctly and may actually become toxic, causing painful conditions in the body. Hypocalcemia is a prominent manifestation of magnesium deficiency in humans. (Rude et al., 1976) Even mild degrees of magnesium depletion significantly decrease the serum calcium concentration. (Fatemi et al., 1991)

Doctors who have used intravenous magnesium treatments know the benefits of peaking magnesium levels, even if only temporarily. For the cancer patient the transdermal approach combined with oral use offers the opportunity to take magnesium levels up strongly and quickly. For emergency situations three applications a day, for urgent two treatments would be indicated though one strong treatment with an ounce of a natural magnesium chloride solution spread all over the body like a sun screen is a powerful systemic treatment.

Calcium and magnesium are opposites in their effects on our body structure. As a general rule, the more rigid and inflexible our body structure is, the less calcium and the more magnesium we need.

Up to 30% of the energy of cells in your body is used to pump calcium out of the cells.

Cancer

Prevention of cancer is the best treatment and understanding what causes cancer is important if you want to be able to avoid it.

More money has gone into learning how to create cancer than ever has gone into learning how to cure it. What you are about to read may shock you!

In 1931, Otto Warburg was awarded the Nobel Prize for his research on cancer. He announced to the world that cancer cannot live in a medium that has a pH of 7.0 or higher. There is your answer to preventing cancer. Keep the pH of your bodily fluids above 7.0 pH.

What is pH? It stands for potential for Hydrogen. It is simply a measurement of acidity or alkalinity. The scale runs from 0-14, 0-6.9 being acidic, 7.0 being neutral or basic and 7.1 - 14 being alkaline.

The body maintains the pH of your blood at 7.365 and that is why your heart is the only organ that never gets cancer. It is simple biochemistry.

The pH of your saliva and urine can be tested at home with pH test strips that can be purchased online or perhaps at a local health food or chemical store. You can also get drops that you put in liquid, like those used to test the pH of a swimming pool, or there are individual litmus strips and also rolls of litmus paper that you can purchase to measure the pH of your urine.

I recommend testing both saliva and first morning urine, because saliva pH is affected by enzymes in your saliva and enzymes are typically alkaline. The reason I recommend testing first morning urine is that during your sleep, bodily fluids have had time to more thoroughly mix and give you a more accurate reading overall. Saliva pH is influenced greatly by enzymes which are created in your mouth.

My biggest caution is that you stay away from x-rays, catscans and all forms of radiation either as a means of testing for cancer or treatment of cancer. Strains of cancer have been developed that only activate and begin to grow after being irradiated. Most people today have these strains of cancer living inside of them in a dormant state and it will remain dormant until exposed to radiation.

For many years, a radiation activated strain of virus has been added to many types of vaccination and that explains why cancer is running so rampant today. You may go in for what appears to be a harmless checkup and the dormant cancer inside of you gets activated by radiation that is used in the diagnosis and then the cancer begins to grow.

Chemotherapy is only effective in 4-8% of the patients who receive this form of thereapy and radiation will only kill about 80% of the cancer cells. The dormant strains of virus that you may have received from a vaccination or booster shot will actually be activated by the radiation, causing it to grow out of control; eventually killing you.

You are better off not knowing if you have cancer than to take the risk of activating a dormant cancer virus that may be living inside of you, which may be the case if you receive any form of diagnostic or therapeutic radiation.

It will be much safer for you to get your body alkalyzed so that there is no chance of cancer getting started and by taking ShopFreeMart products, you can alkalize your cells, strengthen your immune system, increase oxygen levels and remove deadly toxins that are both causing and feeding cancers.

There are many inexpensive and highly effective methods of beating cancer and I have seen fourth stage cancers completely eliminated in as little as two weeks.

I obviously can make no promises, but my research tells me clearly that you odds of beating cancer using these methods is a thousand times better than using traditional medical procedures.

Conventional cancer treatments only treat the symptoms of cancer (tumors or growths) and do not actually do anything to help the patient regain a level of health necessary to keep the cancer from coming back.

Recurrence of cancer is one of the most common problems in cancer patients who choose to undergo conventional cancer therapy. They might think they have beaten their cancer with chemotherapy, radiation or surgery, only to find that it returns with a vengeance because the cause of the cancer was not eliminated.

From a layman's point of view, cancer is a result of a simple biological-chemical relationship between dehydration, a buildup of toxins and chemicals in the body, reduced oxygen levels and a deficiency of certain minerals and nutrients in the body.

Every cell and organ of the body is constantly being bombarded with petrochemical toxins from modern farming and manufacturing processes, not to mention the radiation and electrical frequencies being emitted from electrical wiring, appliances, cell phones, cell towers, radio, television and microwaves and failed nuclear reactors to name a few.

Since the body is incapable of getting rid of all the pollutants, they begin to accumulate in the weaker organs and tissues that are less able to defend themselves against the toxic onslaught.

When these accumulated toxins reach a life-threatening level, the body builds a protein or fibrin sheath around the toxins, which we call a tumor. Cells inside of the tumor mutate (turn malignant) in order to stay alive. Cancer cells then thrive and grow rapidly in this toxic environment.

Italian Oncologist Dr. Tulio Simoncini did extensive research on Cancer and he found that simple baking soda would kill Cancer on contact. He cured many people of cancer by irrigating tumors with a mixture of baking soda and water.

Because he was a threat to the medical establishment's money machine he was persecuted by the drug companies using the means of the Italian police and court system although he had empirical evidence that his treatment was safe and effective.

I have seen some of Dr. Simoncini's videos where lung tumors were completely gone after as few as three such treatments.

Dr. Simoncini concluded that cancer is nothing more than overgrown yeast colonies and his pictures of tumors support that because the white areas of the tumors effervesced and starting turning pink within minutes of being flushed with water and baking soda.

Several years ago, I wrote a series of cancer reports teaching people how to detoxify and alkalinize their bodies. As a result over 1,000 people were able to heal themselves using inexpensive natural methods without going through invasive and dangerous surgeries, chemotherapies or radiation.

The best way to treat cancer is to hydrate the body both intracellulary and extracellularly. The problem is that there is almost no water left on planet earth that effectively gets inside of the cells. Something must be added to your drinking water to make it more hydrating. The best concentrate that I have found for treating your drinking water is ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops.

This water does so many things that by using no other means it may be possible to eliminate many cancers just by drinking ample amounts of drinking water treated with Hydration Drops Concentrate. (See Hydration Drops)

When human cells are fully hydrated they automatically maintain a normal pH of 7.0-7.2, which is a range in which cancer cannot live. Perhaps the real reason that cancer cannot live in a pH of 7.0 or above is the fact that blood oxygen levels of healthy people are between 98 and 100 as measured by a pulse oximeter, but cancer patients show only 60. Cancer cannot live in the presence of oxygen.

When pure water is able to get inside of the cells it also is the medium for carrying nutrition to the cells and also for bathing the inside of the cell and carrying out waste products and toxins.

In addition to Hydration Drops, ShopFreeMart has several other products that support the body nutritionally to get rid of cancer and to help restore the integrity of the cells.

Drugs don't heal; the body heals itself when properly nurtured and strengthened through detoxification, concentrated nutritional substances and a careful confrontation with attitudes and conflicts that are undermining the immune system.

The longer I experience the personal benefits of taking ShopFreeMart products and the more testimonials I hear from others who are using them, the more I am convinced that there is nothing in the nutritional world that comes close to doing what these product do to strenthen the immune system, detoxify the body and give it the nutritional support it needs to heal even the worst of health challenges.

Scurvy and Cancer

In comparing some some pictures of people with scurvy with people having cancer, I was shocked to see the similarities between these two diseases. My mind began to race as I thought about the sailors who at one time died of scurvy and of the subsequent discovery that fresh limes would not only prevent scurvy, but would also quickly cure this dreaded disease.

Perhaps there is a correlation between cancer and scurvy and perhaps God has given us something as simple as fresh lemons or limes to cure another deadly disease that has been the subject of much fear and fearmongering.  See The Lemon Cure For Cancer

Simple truths of how to cure and prevent cancer have been purposely hidden from the general public, which has caused the unnecessary suffering of millions of people physically, emotionally and financially, all for the sake of a select group of people who benefit financially from our ignorance to the tune of trillions of dollars.

Amazing Plant is 100X More Effective Than Chemo

Dandelion root tea acts on cancer cells, affecting them in such way that they disintegrate within 48 hours, during which time no new healthy cells in the body are "diseased".

Often neglected, but dandelion root has many medicinal properties, and all you have to do is to collect it from clean slopes, away from traffic or purchase it from a reliable herb store.

Our grandmothers made syrups of dandelion flowers knowing that it contains many medicinal substances, but what they did not know is that dandelion root may help cancer patients.

In addition to that it has diuretic properties, it stimulates the secretion of bile, cleanses the liver, helps with allergies and reduces cholesterol. It contains very important vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A, B6, thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin C, K, iron, calcium, potassium, folic acid and magnesium.

Miracle dandelion tea

The University of Windsor in Canada conducted an initial research at the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. It was discovered that dandelion root effectively "kills" cells affected by cancer with no harmful effects on other cells in the body.

Cancer cells disintegrated within 48 hours, during which time no new healthy cells in the body were affected. It was concluded that continuous treatment with dandelion root can destroy most cancer cells in affected patients.

John di Carlo, 72 years old, underwent aggressive chemotherapy treatments for three years in the fight for his health before the doctors sent him home to spend his last days with his loved ones.

He started drinking tea from the root of the dandelion and after only four months reportedly experienced remission of his disease.

The Immune System and Cancer

The immune system is designed to protect and defend the body from foreign intruders (bacteria, viruses). It is the security system for your body. It contains several different types of cells, some of which function like "security guards" and are constantly on patrol looking for any foreign invaders. When they spot one, they take action, and eliminate the intruder.

The immune system is the key to both fighting and preventing cancer. It is a fluid network designed to protect us from agents of disease.

At its core, immunity is simple. The body discriminates between what is "you" and what is "not you". (Invaders) The immune system includes white blood cells (leukocytes) and the lymphoid organs (such as the thyroid or spleen). It responds to infectious attack or internal. Until a person is actually dead it is possible to renew this system to destroy even late stage infections. If we consciously choose to, we can engage the full spectrum of the inherent healing powers of our bodies, minds and soul by fully engaging ourselves in the absolute truth of our situations.

One of the biggest factors in a compromised immune system is leaky gut syndrome. Almost everybody has this problem. In fact babies are born with a leaky gut and if they don't receive colustrum from nursing in the first few hours after birth, they will have this problem for the rest of their lives unless they get colostrum from another source.

There are thousands of environmental factors in our modern world that lead to, or exacerbate leaky gut syndrome. There is nothing else that comes close to fixing problems with the gut like ShopFreeMart Immunize and ShopFreeMart Actvate. ShopFreeMart Siaga is also a great companion to these two products, not only for healing the gut, but also for strengthening the immune system. Therefore it would be advisable to supplement with these products daily.

Healing the tiny perforations in the gut lining will prevent undigested food, fecal material, bacteria and candida from escaping the gut and entering directly into the blood stream.

This is what causes auto-immune disorder as the immune system recognizes these foreign invaders as a threat to the body and it begins to attack. Eventually the immune system gets weakened and loses its ability to differentiate between invaders and healthy cells and in many cases begins attacking your own cells.

In this condition, the immune system is incapable of defending against cancer and in fact, the candida that is escaping the gut and entering the blood stream is no doubt the cause of your cancer in the first place.

When taken in combination, ShopFreeMart Immunize and ShopFreeMart Activate kill candida, help to heal leaky gut and strengthen the immune system. So whether you are trying to prevent the onset of cancer, or you have a full-blown onset of this disease, or you are fighting for your very existence, I recommend ShopFreeMart's Immunize and Activate.

People who have received an organ transplant are given drugs to suppress the immune system. A doctor once told me that if a person who has received an organ will maintain their body pH between 7.0 and 7.4 that the body will not reject the organ. He told me that it is not an immune response that causes the organ to be rejected, but rather an acidic condition in the body.

If that is true, then what we really need to do is strengthen the immune system and focus on maintaining a balanced pH. One of the best ways to maintain a healthy pH is by drinking plenty of distilled or purified water with ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops added. 

I am not making any recommendations here, but at the same time, at least question what your medical practioner is telling you. After all, doctors are among the shortest lived of all professions and if doctors knew how to make you live longer, they would probably be doing it for themselves.

When it comes to long life and healing, Magnesium has been regarded by many as a miracle mineral that can save us in times of desperate need. Called by the ancient Chinese the "beauty" mineral, much of its beauty is seen in the absolute healing power it contains.

Magnesium holds the key for hundreds of crucial enzyme reactions and cellular processes. ShopFreeMart has the best isoform of Magnesium that I have found. It can be used both internally and topically and will quickly cross the blood-brain barrier.

Many Magnesium supplements are not the right isoform of Magnesium and actually cause oxidative stress to the body.

George Eby reported in 2007 that the health of his daughter had been destroyed by the terrible side effects of a special type of antibiotic called fluoroquinolones. He said, "My daughter was stricken with this horrible affliction called Cipro sensitivity, which causes long term chronic pain, weakness and tendon weakness leading to tendon breakage and many other horrible effects both physical and mental.

Many are afflicted with this condition, but most cases go undiagnosed. Doctors can do nothing and the only thing that seems to help is magnesium, which is somewhat of an antidote.

Some of the tendon damage is necrotic and permanent, however, there are studies with rattlesnake venom that produce necrosis on animals and simply applying magnesium and zinc gluconate topically, causes the necrosis to vanish.

After ten days of topical application of Magnesium George wrote a letter saying that his daughter was well.

There is a power and a force in Magnesium that cannot be equaled anywhere else in the world of medicine. There is no substitute for Magnesium in human physiology; nothing comes even close to it in terms of its effect on overall cell physiology. It delivers a powerful blow against any chronic or acute disorder.

If we looked it would probably be very difficult to find a cancer patient with anywhere near normal levels of cellular Magnesium. Magnesium is one of the alkaline minerals and most probably, cancer does not exist in a physical cellular environment full of Magnesium.

Thus, Magnesium is a very important item in cancer treatment as it is in all other serious illnesses. Put in the clearest terms possible, my suggestion for any serious disease and especially cancer is to almost drown oneself in ShopFreeMart Magnesium applied transdermally.

ShopFreeMart Magnesium can be taken orally or applied topically on the skin.

Calcium and Cancer:

Calcium requirement for men and women is lower than previously estimated.

US Department of Agriculture Experts say excessive calcium intake may be unwise in light of recent studies showing that high amounts of the mineral may increase risk of prostate cancer. "There is reasonable evidence to suggest that calcium may play an important role in the development of prostate cancer," says Dr. Carmen Rodriguez, senior epidemiologist in the epidemiology and surveillance research department of the American Cancer Society (ACS).

Rodriguez says that a 1998 Harvard School of Public Health study of 47,781 men found those consuming between 1,500 and 1,999 mg of calcium per day had about double the risk of being diagnosed with metastatic (cancer that has spread to other parts of the body) prostate cancer as those getting 500 mg per day or less. And those taking in 2,000 mg or more had over four times the risk of developing metastatic prostate cancer as those taking in less than 500 mg.

Medical wisdom tells us that Magnesium and Boron are actually the keys to the body's proper assimilation and use of Calcium, as well as other important nutrients. If we consume too much calcium without sufficient magnesium, the excess calcium is not utilized correctly and may actually become toxic, causing painful conditions in the body. Hypocalcemia is a prominent manifestation of magnesium and Boron deficiencies in humans. (Rude et al., 1976) Even mild degrees of magnesium depletion significantly decrease the serum calcium concentration. (Fatemi et al., 1991)

Calcium and magnesium are opposites in their effects on our body structure. As a general rule, the more rigid and inflexible our body structure is, the less calcium and the more magnesium we need.

Magnesium serves to keep Calcium mobile in the body and Boron serves to remove excess Calciuim from the soft tisses and redeposit it into the bones and teeth to keep them strong.

ShopFreeMart D-Cal contains the proper form and amount of Boron to keep unwanted Calcium from causing Arthritis and other Calcium related diseases. ShopFreeMart D-Cal should be used in conjuction with ShopFreeMart Magnesium as they need each other to work efficiently.

Treating Cancer with Gold:

Cancer has the effect of breaking down DNA in the cells. Preventing this breakdown could be an important part of preventing cancer and even in fighting against cancer. Although most of the research has been swept under the rug, nano gold has been clinically tested as a possible remedy for treating cancer. The prescence of both gold and copper appear to help prevent the breakdown of DNA in the cells.

My research indicates that the mineral gold may also be instrumental in helping the cells eliminate heavy metals and evironmental toxins that are known to be carcinogenic. A body that is free from toxins, can frequently heal itself from cancer and other diseases, much the same way that a wound that is disinfected will begin to heal.

The problem is that inexpensive and effective methods of treating cancer are not popular among the established drug and medical communities that profit to the tune of billions of dollars annually from this dreaded disease.

I recommend ShopFreeMart PureGold, PureCopper and Siaga for anyone who is trying to prevent a breakdown of DNA due to the destructive free radicals associated with toxins.

Treating Cancer with Silver:

The yeast colonies mentioned earlier, neutralize your immune system, allowing damage inside of the cell at the DNA level.

ShopFreeMart PureSilver is a broad-spectrum preventative agent that destroys bacteria on contact.

If one of my family members had cancer, I would recommend that they take 1 dropper of ShopFreeMart Pure Silver on day one and 1 dropper every two hours on day two. Then take 3 droppers twice daily for the next five days. After that, take 2 droppers twice daily as a maintenance dose.

If you are taking baking soda as part of your cancer regimen, I recommend that you separate Silver and baking boda by at least one hour.

Sinus, mouth, throat, or lung cancer patients may want to inhale ShopFreeMart PureSilver from a nebulizer. This allows the PureSilver to come in deep contact with the lungs, bronchioles, and sinuses. This approach should be combined with taking PureSilver orally.

If you have access to a nebulizer, mix one dropper of PureSilver with 1-2 TBs. of distilled water in your nebulizer and inhale the silver and water vapor for 30 minutes 2-4 times daily.

Take 1-2 droppers of ShopFreeMart PureSilver under the tongue every hour (9x) for the first two days, followed by 1-2 droppers 3x daily until the inflammation in the lungs is gone.

There is also a very experimental method for IV usage. The question would be where to find a medical practioner that would perform this treatment.

About 3,000 cases have used liquid silver intravenously, with no reported toxicity problems. An IV can be made utilizing 100 CCs of silver liquid at 25 parts per million. Mix with 250 CCs of D5W mixture hung in a bag and dripped for one hour, given every other day for 10 total doses.

This is a very important formulation and can be adjusted depending upon the parts per million of the liquid silver used. The ShopFreeMart PureSilver comes in a concentration of 200 ppm, therefore if you are able to find a doctor willing to do this, he or she will need to use 12.5 CCs of ShopFreeMart Pure Silver to make the same concentration used in the cases above.

It should be noted that pure distilled water should be used as a carrier for the PureSilver; not a saline solution.

When you put PureSilver liquid directly in the veins it will begin killing even the most serious bacteria on contact. Noticeable improvements will occur within the first two days. It has also shown to be promising against viral infections like hepatitis, cancer, Epstein-Barr and even the AIDS virus.

The Budwig Method

Dr. Johanna Budwig was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Medicine six times, meaning that we should probably treat her work with respect.

She died in 2003, at the age of 95. During her career, Dr. Budwig permanently cured 90% of her patients from all types of cancer by using non-toxic ingredients which don't cause any side-effects.

Dr. Budwig said, "I have the answer to cancer, but American doctors won't listen. They come here and observe my methods and are impressed. Then they want to make a special deal so they can take it home and make a lot of money. I won't do it, so I'm blackballed in every country."

The Cancer Industry is Based on Lies!

Big Pharma does not make money when people are healthy and they stop making money when sick people die. The fact that the cancer industry has no interest in finding the cure should not come as a surprise. Cancer is the most profitable disease in medical history and the establishment will do their best to keep it that way.

The Unholy Trinity of Cancer!

Dr. Budwig believed that toxins, radiation, and acidosis are the unholy trinity of cancer. Acidosis is the final stage of the condition, in which the person's body chemistry becomes acidic and the ability of his blood to retain and carry oxygen is severely diminished.

The blood oxygen level of healthy people is between 98 and 100 as measured by a pulse oximeter, but cancer patients measure only 60. The oxygen in a cancer patient's blood is replaced by wastes such as carbon dioxide. This lack of oxygen leads to the formation of tumors and cells must mutate in order to get energy from a sugar fermentation process.

The fermentation process is toxic and the waste products of fermentation that builds up in the tissues cause even more toxicity. This leads to even more acidosis and cellular oxygen starvation.  Eventually, the process results in multiplication of cancer cells and ends up being fatal. These scientific facts are backed up by science and were proven by Dr. Otto Warburg who won a Nobel Prize in 1931.

Oxygen is the most important weapon in the fight against cancer. The Budwig Protocol is a process which stimulates the oxygen supply while aadjusting the body's pH into an alkaline state. When the body is in an alkaline state, the blood is full of oxygen, which kills mutated cancer cells.

From my own experience, drinking ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops mixed with distilled water will increase oxygen levels rather quickly as tested by a pulse oximeter. Getting plenty of clean water into the interior of the cells will also increase alkalinity of the cells due to the fact that a well-hydrated cell is constantly being bathed, which removes toxic wastes which are acidic.

Dr. Budwig's protocol is based on the use of a solution made from common flaxseed oil and quark cheese. She found out that the so-called "healthy" (fat-free) diets actually cause a huge problem. In response to that, she eliminated the "damaging fats" and foods that cause cellular oxygen starvation and replaced them with healing foods and "essential" fatty acids. She also emphasized the importance of sunlight, which is a natural source of the anti-cancer vitamin D3.

The Budwig Anti-Cancer Protocol!

Budwig Protocol consists of two stages. The first one is all-natural, combining protein-sulfur of quark/cottage cheese omega-3 fats from flaxseed. Dr. Budwig found that the body will synthesize omega-3 from flaxseed oil in the exact quantity that it needs. "Without these fatty acids, the respiratory enzymes cannot function and the person suffocates, even when he is given oxygen-rich air.

This protocol is typically ingested orally, but in the most terminal cases, Dr. Budwig had administered flax seed oil in enema form. The second part of the Budwig Method includes special diet. The patients are recommended to follow the protocol for at least 6 months, regardless of the symptoms.

The Medicine!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup pure quark cheese (Make sure that it is not made with homogenized milk)
  • 2-5 tablespoons of flax seed oil, about 10 supplement capsules, or 1-3 tablespoons of freshly ground flax seed (Note that flax oil or ground seed must be used immediately after exposure to air.
  • little cayenne

The medicine is properly combined and taken orally at least once daily.  It should be stirred with a wooden spoon and never with metal one.

The Diet!

  • Stay away from sugar
  • Add grape juice to sweeten any other freshly squeezed juice
  • Avoid pure animal fats, such as lard, fatback, dripping, etc.
  • Do not use any commercial salad dressings or toppings
  • Never consume commercial mayonnaise
  • Avoid meats if they are not organic and range-fed
  • Avoid butter and margarine
  • Drink freshly squeezed vegetable juices made of carrots, celery, and red beet.
  • Drink a cup of warm tea three times daily, such as peppermint, rosehip or grape tea. Use natural sweetener like honey.
  • Avoid all artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and high-fructose corn syrup)
  • Follow a chemical-free diet
  • Avoid all processed foods
  • Reduce the use of all pharmaceuticals
  • Don't consume soft drinks
  • Avoid tap water and use products that do not contain fluoride
  • Eat only freshly prepared foods

Additional Tips!

  • Use flax seed oil which is protected from air, heat, and light. It should be cold pressed and organic
  • Avoid fish oil and non-flax sources of omega-3 fatty acids
  • Avoid all hydrogenated oils
  • Supplement with chlorophyll
  • Drink green drink on a regular basis to ensure proper nutrition
  • Take Vitamin C daily, but not more than 5 grams per day, because massive doses can cause kidney stress
  • Avoid sunscreens and cosmetics
  • Avoid white bread, white rice, white sugar, white salt, white flour, and anything else that contains chlorine compounds
  • Avoid "table" salt and use natural salt instead (Celtic, Himalayan or Redmond "Real Salt")
  • Look for safer alternatives to common soaps, bleaches, and detergents at health food stores (ShopFreeMart NVIRO soap products)
  • Avoid soy products, canola oil, corn oil, etc.
  • Take a teaspoon of cold pressed organic coconut oil on a daily basis
  • Use an oxygen drink several times daily (ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops)

Johanna Budwig's Books

Six of Budwig`s books are available in German and only three of them have been translated into English. They are as follows:

  • The Oil-Protein Cookbook (Öl-Eiweiß-Kost) Sensei Verlag (2000)
  • Cancer – The Problem and the Solution (Krebs. Das Problem und die Lösung) Sensei Verlag (1999)
  • Flax Oil As A True Aid Against Arthritis, Heart Infarction, Cancer And Other Diseases (Fette als wahre Hilfe gegen Arteriosklerose, Herzinfarkt, Krebs) 1972

Last but not least, it is important to mention that the Budwig protocol is result of an extensive research by Dr. Budwig on the properties of fatty acids. This is one of the reasons I included her protocol in this chapter and for her sensible diet. Many other protocols have ignored one or the other of these things.

Finally, you may want to go back and read the first chapter of this book for my own protocol.

Additional Information

People who are inactive are more likely to gain weight because they don't burn up the calories that they take in from food and drinks. An inactive lifestyle also raises your risk for cancer, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and other health problems.

Areas with known iodine (iodide) deficiency have the highest rates of breast and prostate cancer and conversely, breast and prostate cancers rates are low in areas with high iodine in the soil. And in order for researchers to give laboratory animals breast cancer, the animals must first be put into an iodine deficient state. This would suggest making sure you have sufficient iodine in your diet. Sea vegetables like kelp and dulse are rich in iodine.

Illnesses linked to electromagnetic radiation exposure include many cancers, neurological conditions, ADD, sleep disorders, depression, autism, behavioral problem, cognitive problems, cardiovascular irregularities, hormone disruption, immune system disorders, metabolism changes, stress, fertility impairment, increased blood brain barrier permeability, mineral disruption, DNA damage and much, much more. (See also Cell Phones, EMF, Microwaves)

Studies show A 60 percent greater chance of acoustic neuromas, a tumor affecting the nerve that controls hearing, among people who had used cell phones for six years or more and a higher rate of brain cancer deaths among handheld mobile phone users than among car phone users.

Australia has seen an increase in pediatric brain cancers of 21 percent in just one decade. This is consistent with studies showing a 40 percent brain tumor increase across the board in Europe and the U.K. over the last 20 years.

Brain cancer has now surpassed leukemia as the number one cancer killer in children.

According to the Journal of Chem. Medicinal Chem. (Nov. 2007), beams of ultraviolet light can be used to destroy tumors and cancers. Special molecules are injected into the bloodstream and then activated by a beam of ultraviolet light. It only takes a few minutes of light beam therapy to actively attack the cancer cells. The top research scientist (Colin Self) stated: "I would describe this development as the equivalent of ultra-specific magic bullets." This break-through in cancer treatment is significant to Pure Silver because, according to Penn State University Professor Roy, Pure Silver has been published to resonate at a frequency of 910 terahertz which falls in the same category of ultraviolet light frequency as the antitumor lights. (Curr. Science Invest, 2007)

It has been shown that infectious agents are associated with causing solid tumors (Kaposi's sarcoma), blood-based cancers (Leukemia) and other forms of cancers such as cervical cancer, which is caused by the Human Papilloma Virus. (Townsend Letters for Doctors, May 2006). As you can see, bacteria, viruses, mold and other infectious agents have been reported to cause cancers. Taken daily, Pure Silver can prevent cellular bacteria, viruses, and mold so that the single-cell abnormalities never go beyond a single cell.

This is important because once diagnosed, doctors often prescribe chemotherapy or radiation that can cause immune suppression. This suppression of normal immune function allows for multiple pathogens to seed or spread. In this situation Pure Silver may have the potential to play a dual role: either destroy the infectious agent that causes the cancer and/or destroy the pathogenic load arising from the immuno-compromised patients. (Townsend Letters for Doctors, May 2006)

Doctor Rentz (Am Acad Environmental Medicine, 2003) reports that the following cancer-associated infections are susceptible to silver treatment: HIV (Bull Cancer, 2006), Kaposi's sarcoma (Eur. Neurology, 2002), Epstein Barr Virus (J. Biol Regul Homeost Agents, 2005), Respiratory syncytial virus (Pediatrics, 2005), Influenza, Parainfluenza, Fungemia (J Support Oncology, 2005), Rotavirus (Bone Marrow Transplant, 2005), Cytomegalovirus (Cancer, 25), and streptococcus pneumoniae (Medicine, 2005).

According to a NASA Technical report done at the University of Wisconsin, silver solution can be skillfully administered and due to its picoscaler diffusion capabilities will impregnate all collective atoms within each tumor cell or pathogenic cell with silver ions. (Final technical report, University of Wisconsin, and NASA CR-114978, code 3, cat 04) This saturation potential supercharges silver's ability to displace the potassium-dependent glucose transport mechanism, which is the exclusive means by which cancerous cells feed themselves, thereby selectively starving cancer cells without harming normal cells. (Townsend Letter for Doctors, May 2006)

Published cancer results include:

"We studied malignant fibrosarcoma cells (cancerous fibroblasts) and found that electrically injected silver suspended their runaway mitosis." (Becker, 1995).

"Women with breast cancer (confirmed by biopsies), each received a single dose of silver solution at a concentration of 10 ppm. We retested the subjects at day nineteen, resulting in 100% normal tissue". (Antelman, MS. 2000)

Note: Taking ShopFreeMart PureSilver may help reduce the risk of tumors and cancers. ShopFreeMart Siaga helps eliminate free radicals, toxins and other pathogens that may be the cause of tumors. Regular use of ShopFreeMart Immunize can also strengthen the immune system, helping to ward off disease-causing microorganisms.

Negativity is a major cause of tumors and cancer. Make a list of all the negative things in your life, including television, radio, newspapers and negative people. Begin to eliminate all negativity from your life. Tell negative friends and family that you are going through a special therapy and won't be able to contact them for some time. You should also eliminate as much stress as you possibly can. (See Forgiveness, Faith and Joy)

Candida may be the underlying symptom of every disease. Dr. Tulio Simoncini says that all Cancers are overgrown colonies of Candida. (See Candida)

Candida

Yeast and mold infections are among the most difficult to treat of human ailments. Some of them are also among the most debilitating, such as candida yeast. Candida yeast will readily grow in any moist area of the body, such as the mouth ("thrush"), groin ("jock itch"), vagina ("yeast infection"), and intestines.

Candida yeast is found naturally in the body, but is normally kept under control by friendly bacteria, such as acidophilus. But candida yeast often gets out of control following the use of antibiotics. The antibiotic kills off the friendly acidophilus and aerobic bacteria but does not affect the yeast. Without the friendly organisms such as the multiple strains of acidophilus to control it, candida grows fast.

The excess sugar of diabetes will also provide food for yeast, causing it to proliferate. Diabetics are therefore especially prone to this type of problem.

The intestines form perfect breeding grounds for candida. If the condition becomes bad enough, eventually the candida irritates an area of the intestine so much that their toxins penetrate the intestinal wall into the blood stream, where they can break down the immune system. Soon the candida infection itself passes through the intestinal wall and the white blood cells are consumed in their struggle to control the infection, further destroying the immune system. Thus, candida is a common contributor to many diseases and conditions, such as AIDS, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, colds, flus, etc.. Almost all disease and health problems are greatly aggravated by candida.

Candida pictureWhen Candida escapes your gut and enters your bloodstream, it goes through a metamorphosis, converting itself into a fungus. It then protected by a powerful armor called a "chittin layer" similar to a turtle or an insect with an exo-skeleton

Candida Albicans is a fungal yeast. A full blown Candida infection could be robbing you of your life. It is a silent killer that sucks your energy controls how you feel and even how you think.

Candida is always present in the human gut; everyone has Candida to some extent. The gut also has natural bacteria that feed on the yeast andkeep levels in control to prevent it from becoming a problem, but modern antibiotics kill the natural bacteria, which then leads to Candida overgrowth and many related health problems including Cancer.

Acid is the real problem, as Candida thrives in a high acid environment and the bacteria that keeps it under control thrives in a low acid environment.

Acid also leads to leaky gut syndrome and most people today have small pinholes in their intestinal walls (hyperpermeable intestines) that allow food particles, fecal material and Candida to enter directly into the bloodstream. This is how systemic Candida infections get started.

To permanently solve this problem, diet should be improved, ShopFreeMart Immunize and Activate should be taken on a daily basis and steps should be taken to alkalyze the body in order that the gut may heal and prevent future leaking of Candida into the bloodstream. (See Immunize)

Once the yeast finds its way into the bloodstream, it spreads throughout the entire body, and once it is outside the gut, it no longer has the friendly bacteria as its predator to keep it in check.

Normally, your immune system would identify and attack this intruder, but once it is loose in your blood-stream, it converts itself into fungus that is protected with a hard outer shell that is Impossible for Your Immune System to Penetrate.

The real problem is the Fungus is protected by an Armour-Like Cellular Membrane.

It's called: Chitin, or Chitin layer. Imagine the fungus is wearing a suit of armour that your immune system cannot punch through. This is why Candida is so hard to get rid of! There are plenty of expensive Candida treatments and even strict Candida diets that claim to get rid of Candida, however, at best they may only temporarily keep the fungal growth under control.

Candida Fungus Colony
Candida fungus under microscope. Candida forms stringy mycelium like connections..
it almost looks like it has it's own nervous system.



The fungus can stay dormant in your body for years, and the moment you slip up with your diet even for just a single day, you can end up with a full-blown systemic Candida problem. Avoiding sugars, wheat, dairy and other acid forming foods is advised at least until the Candida is completely under control.

Candida loves acid and stress creates acid, so the same thing can happen if you have a stressful week. Learning to remain calm in the face of problems can help keep your Candida under control.

Candida contributes to the symtoms of every disease.

Candida is present in every disease and many of the symtoms that you experience are directly related to this fungus. The difference between different symptoms depends where the fungus resides in your body.

Once Candida gets out of the gut due to leaky gut syndrome, it is now loose in your blood-stream and can go any place including the brain. Candida is one of the few things that can actually cross the blood-brain barrier.

When Candida gets started in the brain and sets up it's mycelium (mushroom) like network, you can expect to experience symptoms like depression, anxiety, foggy thinking and loss of memory.

In fact, a quick search on various medical websites will show over 100 different symptoms that can be expressed in someone diagnosed with Candida.

Could it be that Candida is the "real" name of all diseases and is the thing we should be treating, no matter what is the diagnosis?

There are several symtoms that the medical community has already recognized as being a fungal or yeast in infection and the initial stages often involve the gut, mouth and urinary tract.

The most common of these are:

  • Thrush
  • Sore Throat
  • Bloating
  • Gas
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Ear Ache
Symptoms are not limited to, but include:
  • Sugar and alcohol cravings, as well as cravings for carbohydrate rich food. (bread, pasta, rice, etc.)
  • Migraines
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Vaginitis
  • Foggy thinking
  • Itching
  • Acne
  • Hyperactivity
  • Inflammation
  • Irritability
  • Dizziness
  • Low Sex Drive
  • Ear ache
  • Skin infections
  • Athlete's foot
  • Chronic Pain
  • Muscle Weakness

Mouth Infection.

As more studies are done on Candida infection, it is being realized that this yeast is a serious contributor to many illnesses that now include:

  • Alcoholism
  • Asthma
  • Addison's Disease
  • Chronic Fatigue Synd
  • IBS
  • PMS
  • Depression
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Psoriasis
  • Arthritis

The Connection Between Candida and Cancer

People who have Cancer always have fungus and those who have toenail fungus are likely to end up with Cancer. A friend of mine who had yellow toenail fungus started drinking a gallon of distilled water daily to which he added Pure Silver. Three months later he reported that his toenails were now like those of a teenager.

I did not treat this individual, so I cannot verify what he told me, but I can see no harm in trying such a thing and I would suggest adding some ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops Concentrate to the distilled water to help improve hydration of all of the cells of the body.

Hundreds of years ago the idea that the plague and disease in general could be spread by tiny little micro organisms was unbelievable. It was only through the work and determination of dedicated scientists such as Dr. Otto Warburg (Nobel Prize in Medicine) and Dr. Gunther Enderlein (the dark field microscopy blood test is named after him) who ignored the laughter and began searching for the evidence for their theories. As early as 1931, Dr. Otto Warburg was awarded a Nobel Prize for his research on cancer.

Dr. Warburg's research states that "cancer cannot live in a pH of 7.0" Another way of saying this is, "you will never get cancer if you keep your pH at 7.0 or slightly above."

Dr. Otto Warburg in his book, The Metabolism of Tumors, stated that the primary cause of cancer is the replacement of oxygen in the respiratory cell chemistry by the fermentation of sugar. The growth of cancer cells is initiated by a fermentation process, which creates an anerobic environment, starving your cells for oxygen and allowing bacteria, viruses and fungi to grow out of control.

What Dr. Warburg was describing is a classic picture of acidic conditions.

Just like overworked muscle cells manufacture lactic acid by-products as waste, cancerous cells spill lactic acid and other acidic compounds throughout your body causing an acid pH.

The American Medical Association backed by the pharmaceutical drug industry boycotted Dr. Warburg from entering the United States. They also put a squelch on the media to prevent Dr. Warburg's work from becoming widely known and because they control everything that is printed in the modern medical textbooks, no mention of Dr. Warburg is found there either. This was done to protect the money they make as a result of people getting cancer.

Shortly after Dr. Warburg's Nobel Prize, Dr. Enderlein from Germany (mentined above) was commissioned by Adolph Hitler to keep the animals at the Berlin Zoo healthy. For many years, Dr. Enderlein took blood and tissue samples from healthy, sick, dead and dying animals. Thousands of tests were performed on these samples and the simple yet amazing discovery was that each group of animals had a different pH range. So we have two German scientists that conclusively linked pH with health and disease and each set up a comparison to indicate what constitutes a healthy pH.

This is a fascinating story with interesting details, which are obviously too exhaustive for this short report. I will say however, that Dr. Enderlein discovered a microscopic living organism present in every cell of the body, which he named Mucor Racemos Frescens (MRF). This organism is resistant to the highest heat and the coldest cold and to every drug, chemical and acid known to man, with the exception of Silver. MRF takes on different life forms depending upon the pH of the cell and antibiotics only cause it to mutate and reproduce itself more quickly.

My personal conclusion is that what Dr. Enderlein called Mucor Racemos Frescens, we now know as Candida.

When pH is a normal 7.0 - 7.4, Candida is not only controlled, but it creates vitamins and health giving substances for the body. As the pH turns acidic, Candida mutates and starts killing your cells. When you die, this same organism is what decomposes your body and turns it back to dirt.

For a time the work of Dr. Enderlein was published and found in American medical textbooks. I personally saw this information in an older American Medical texbook, but this information has since been removed and is no longer found in modern medical text, so although pH was taught in medicine for a number of decades, it has never been practiced.

The same testing that Dr. Enderlein did on animals was conducted decades later on humans at the federally owned Idaho National Engineering Laboratory. And after spending millions of dollars and using thousands of samples and much more sophisticated, state of the art equipment than Dr. Enderlein had access to, his research was confirmed!

One of the research scientists involved with that project told me that they verified everything Dr. Enderlein had discovered. I talked at length with this talented Biochemist and what was most puzzling and disturbing to him was the fact that this project was classified "Top Secret" and was never reported to the public or published in any medical journals.

I received this information in great confidence only after promising never to reveal his name, because the scientists involved in this research were warned never to breathe a word about this project and he told me that there were some who did that mysteriously disappeared.

Today more and more evidence comes to light from scientists all around the world about the connection between Candida albicans and cancer.

Italian oncologist (cancer doctor), Tullio Simoncini, has long been an advocate of the fungal hypothesis in regards to cancer. Dr Simoncini is well aware of the epidemic of Candida in the world that is going untreated. He believes that the fungus is underestimated as so little is understood about it. His research began when he decided that there was a strange connection with all cancers in that they all behave in the same way despite them occurring in the widest variety of locations in the body. He then began to search for a common denominator within all these different cancers and believed he had found it when he saw that most cancers appear white in color. These white masses are fungi - white, just like Candida albicans! (in Latin, Candida albicans' literally means 'glowing white')

Cancer and Canida are connected

The presence of Candida fungi in all tumors is nothing surprising to the medical world.

The 'party line' answer from most cancer doctors is that Candida is an opportunistic organism that finds root within the existing tumors.

However, Dr. Simonicini and others strongly disagree, because when you start looking at how Candida turns into fungus, and what happens afterward, the picture gets pretty clear.

Candida makes a sugary alcohol substance as a by-product of its existence, which leads to anaerobic conditions, creating the perfect environment in which to proliferate further. Fungi are anaerobes, which means they die in the presence of oxygen.

They move around inside your body and colonize an area of your breast or prostate and cancer thrives in situations where oxygen levels are low.

We can follow the pattern of development of Candida yeast to fungus to cancer below:

1. First the Candida fungi roots itself deep within the various tissues and organs.

2. The fungus then multiplies; the body then responds by attempting to encyst the fungal colonies; the outcome being the formation of neoplasias; a tumor forms around the fungus.

3. Growth both in the surrounding tissue and other areas of the body (metastasis).

4. Progressive exhaustion of the body with consequential total body invasion.

In plain English it means that the Candida Fungus invades an area of the body (usually a weaker organ) and creates for itself a perfect environment in which it can thrive, which in turn causes tumors to be formed, which leads to mutation of cells and cancer.

Could it really be that simple? If it were, then this would mean we were on the verge of a revolution. It would mean that it's possible to prevent Cancer.

If the works of doctors Warburg and Enderlein had been published and taught in our schools in the United States, every child would understand how to protect themselves from cancer by simply keeping Candida Albicans in check.

The answer is to keep the body alkaline and to prevent or treat leaky gut by taking a daily dose of ShopFreeMart Immunize (bovine colustrum) and ShopFreeMart Activate. See ShopFreeMart Immunize.

There are Plenty of Methods Like Diets or Antifunguals, but They Simply Don't Work.

There are plenty of solutions out there for Candida, however, like I said earlier, they do not deal with the root of the problem because nobody is stopping the Candida from entering the bloodstream due to leaky gut and once it gets out it is hard to kill because it is covered by an armour-like chitin layer.

The chitin layer is similar to the hard exo-skeletons of insects like cockroaches.

This makes it impossible for your immune system to attack the fungus.

If you've ever had an insect problem in your home such as ants or cockroaches, then you might have an idea of what you're actually up against.

Except that you can poison cockroaches or ants, but you can't use the same approach within your body or you would die.

Coackroach exo-skeleton
Cockroaches and many other insects have a chitin-layer exo-skeleton, just like Candida fungus.

Are Anti-fungal Medications Safe?

If your doctor has diagnosed Candida then he will probably prescribe anti-fungal medications.

The problem with anti fungals is that they place a great deal of stress on the kidneys and liver.

The side effects include headaches and nausea and it's simply not practical to take these with any frequency as you will risk liver damage.

The only answer is to get to the root of the problem.

Candia Can effect the Liver
Anti-fungal medications can be extremely stressful for your liver and kidneys.

There IS an easy, safe way to bypass the Candida's chitin layer and wipe it out!

New Study Proves Pure Silver Decimates Fungal Pathogens; Even Superior to Popular Anti-Fungal Drugs

A recent study conducted by the Department of Microbiology at Kyungpook National University in Daegu, Korea, and published in the prestigious Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology, demonstrates that Pure Silver is one of the most powerful and effective natural anti-fungal agents in the world.

The authors of this study tested silver nanoparticles against the Candida species of fungus (the chief culprit in women's vaginal yeast infections and the more sinister chronic candidiasis syndrome) as well as the Trichophyton species (the most common cause of athlete's foot, jock itch and ringworm, as well as hair and nail fungal infections in humans).

What they discovered is that the silver particles "showed potent activity against clinical isolates and ATCC strains" of the fungal pathogens.

What this means is silver was equally effective against lab-grown strains of the fungal pathogens and strains isolated from infected specimens.

Treating Fungal Infections With Silver

It is now well known that many nasty cases of dandruff are actually topical fungal skin infections in disguise. I personally use and recommend ShopFreeMart PureSilver Concentrate and what is not yet well known is that you can put a dropper full of ShopFreeMart Pure Silver on your scalp each morning after drying your hair from the shower, which will eliminate such topical stealth fungal infections in a matter of days!

Fungal infections of the inner ear can likewise be cleared up in only a few short days simply by putting a few drops of ShopFreeMart PureSilver into the ears each day for several days in a row, allowing it to seep down into the ear for six to ten minutes before draining it back out.

Likewise, fungal infections of the eyes can be stopped practically overnight, simply by putting 1-2 drops of Pure Silver directly into the eyes several times a day. Similarly, Pink Eye can also be eradicated (sometimes overnight) using the same technique. And it works great for styes too, which many doctors believe are simply staph infections in the eye.

Thrush in the mouth, which is simply a Candida "yeast" or fungal infection often characterized by a white tongue, can be rapidly cleared up by using ShopFreeMart Pure Silver. Simply swish 1-3 droppers full around in your mouth two or three times a day, for a minimum of six minutes each time. You can then swallow afterwards, or simply spit it out if you prefer.

Do this especially after any meal in which sugary products have been consumed. You'll find the "thrush" symptoms diminishing within a few short days, and eradicated within a week or two.

Athlete's foot and stubborn toenail fungal infections can also be wiped out by using ShopFreeMart PureSilver instead of potentially harmful antifungal drugs that have been known to harm the liver. The difficulty may be in finding a suitable glass or plastic dish to which you can pour a couple inches of water and add 1-3 droppers of ShopFreeMart Pure Silver into it. Then soak your feet for about 30 minutes while watching television or reading a book.

Athlete's foot can be eradicated in a few short days following this simple method. But stubborn toenail fungal infections may take up to three weeks, or even a bit longer. Nevertheless, you'll soon notice nice, clear new nails growing in where the old yellow or gray-green infected nails were.

Trim the old infected toenail away as it grows out naturally, and let the beautiful new, uninfected nail grow in normally.

Granted, the above-described procedure can be a bit expensive if you are using commercially prepared colloidal silver products purchased from a health food store or through an internet source because of amount you have to use in order to be effective due to the weak dillutions of these products.

The other option, (and I highly recommend it) is to put 3 droppers of ShopFreeMart PureSilver into a gallon of pure water and drink the gallon of distilled water throughout the day. This will kill the Candida systemically. For those people who have serious fungal infections, they may want to begin with a weaker dilution for the first few days so as to kill the Candida more slowly as the dying Candida can actually make you extremely ill.

Be sure to drink plenty of distilled water with FreeMart Hydration Drops Concentrate added to help wash the dead Candida out of your system.

Note: I recommend using a non-metal spoon for mixing ShopFreeMart PureSilver in order to prevent any dielectric activity with the silver.

It may take up to three months of drinking Silver and water to kill the Candida throughout your system and even after getting rid of your toenail fungus and other Candida infections, you may want to continue adding 1 or more droppers of ShopFreeMart PureSilver to a gallon of water daily as a maintenance dose to prevent future infections.

And the best part of using PureSilver is it is completely safe for your liver and kidneys!

And to prevent further innoculation of Candida into your bloodstream, be sure to take ShopFreeMart Immunize, Activate and Siaga on a daily basis. Using a good probiotic can also be helpful to controling yeast colonies.

What about Antibiotics?

The Journal of the American Medical Association (Feb 18th 2004; 291; 827-35) has reported a study on 10,000 women over a 17 year period. Women who only took antibiotics one time had a 1.5 times increase in the occurance of breast canceer over those who took none and if they took 25 plus doses during that period of time the risk of getting cancer doubled.

Friendly Bacteria

Few people understand the role of Beneficial Bacteria in the human body and that includes doctors and medical experts.

Beneficial bacteria are crucial to the fight against cancer. They are now proven in research to direct a strong immune system, they digest foreign microbes, yeasts and candida every night while you sleep, and they help release nourishment and essential cancer preventing and cancer fighting compounds from your food. Without them, you are simply not fully equipped to prevent cancer or beat cancer. IT IS THAT SERIOUS.

Some beneficial bacteria even produce sodium butyrate, which causes cancer cells to self-destruct. Yes, Beneficial bacteria are that important, but Drugs and antibiotics kill them off reducing your natural ability to beat cancer. Multi-strained probiotics can at least replace some of the lost billions of your crucial little helpers.

Apart from the fact that antibiotics may well be toxic to brain cells, they also kill many strains of bacteria in the body, including the ones you need; the friendly ones in the gut.

Friendly bacteria? Youve probably heard of acidophilus, or bifidobacteria? Your gut actually contains about 800 different strains, 400 of which have been identified. This is how important they are.  

1. They represent about 85 per cent of your immune system - they stimulate your immune system to produce antibodies.
2. They help to cut up your foods and release important (and anti-cancer) vitamins like biotin, folic acid, B-12 and vitamin K.
3. They help you eliminate carcinogenic hormones and chemicals like estrogen, nitrosamines, cadmium and mercury.
4. They even produce an anti-cancer chemical from your foods.
5. They thrive on whole foods, fibers candida albicans and microbes.

Antibiotics kill most of the bacteria in the body, including the ones you need. At night, friendly bacteria can digest roughly 2.2 kilograms of yeasts and microbes for you.

They are your first line of defence. They have inhabited our bodies since the beginning of time. They help us, and in return we give them a nice cosy place to live. Except we don't anymore. We have broken our lifetime deal with them. We no longer feed them their favourite fiber-rich, whole foods. And we eat too many sugars, drink alcohol and chlorinated water.

We eat foods that contain antibiotics, and most people have taken antibiotics at some time during their lifetime. We polute the precious water that our cells live in with acids from poor diet and stress.

These friendly bacteria thrive in alkaline bodies, but they die in acidic conditions. Candida is also the natural enemy of friendly bacteria, and to make matters worse we feed their enemies. Candida loves sugar and dairy!

Stress and poor diet can eliminate most friendly bacteria in just a few days, so you are wise anyway to take a daily probiotic.

A good probiotic can help supply your body with necessary friendly bacteria.

Candida is Cancer?

Candida expert Chris Woollams says: I recently went to a cancer clinic in the USA, and to the Dove Clinic in the UK. At both I talked to the nurses.

They were unanimous. Every cancer patient they see, man or woman, has bad candida. Whether it is breast cancer, prostate cancer or any other cancer.

Cancer Treatments Make Matters Worse!

Steroids and chemotherapy both heighten the effect of Candida, worsening the cancer cell feeding. Its like throwing babies to the sharks.

The prestigious US magazine Contemporary Oncology as early as April 1993 said: Cancer patients undergoing radio or chemotherapy did not finally succumb to the cancer itself, but to an infestation of candida albicans.

What Can Be Done?

Another Candida expert, Gerald Green believes that even terminal cancer patients can be saved if the root cause is candida. He says that sufferers must immediately:

Eliminate the Following From Your Diet

All cows milk products: Cheese, yoghurt, whey and all cows milk derivatives which are everywhere in processed food.

Yeast products: Alcohol, bread, Marmite, Oxo, Bovril, vinegars, mushrooms, processed and smoked fish and meats.

All sugar products: Honey, fructose, lactose, glucose, dextrose and sweeteners like Nutrisweet and Canderel.

Nearly all fruit: Overripe fruits are full of sugar and yeasts. Plus vegetables like courgettes, pumpkin, squash, marrow. High sugar root vegetables: Carrots, parsnips, sweet potatoes, beetroots, (maximum 1 per day).

Refined wheat, rice, pasta, fizzy soft drinks, fruit juices and squash, biscuits, pastries, pies and corn.

Avoid all pulses, processed meats, high salt foods and all hydrogenated vegetable oils too.

His sweetener ofchoice isStevia, a herb100 times sweeter than sugar but a natural anti-fungal agent.

He recommends astragalus and echinacea pIus 1 gm vitamin C daily to boost the immune system.

What Is a Healing Crisis?

Many people who have a serious Candida infection find that when the Candida start dying off that they feel worse before they feel better.

This is completely normal and is known as 'Jarisch-Herxheimer' or a healing crisis. See Herxheimer Reaction.

What is basically happening is that ShopFreeMart PureSilver is doing its job and destroying the fungus, because although the chitin layer surrounding the fungus is impervious to drugs and antviral compounds, it has no natural protection, nor can it develop an immunity to Pure Silver.

This rapid killing off of the Candida means that toxins are released into the body which can make you feel a bit puny.

This is only temporary and as soon as the ShopFreeMart PureSilver has killed a majority of the fungi, you will be feeling a LOT better than you did before, and that can happen as early as just a few days!

The affect of Candida die off can also be minimised by increased water intake and making sure the bowels move two or three times a day. Drink distilled water that is treated with ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops Concentrate to get the maximum removal of the dead Candida and to get your cells well hydrated on the inside.

ShopFreeMart Immunize and a good probiotic are highly recommended. Not only do they help you to have normal and regular bowel movements, but together they replace friendly bacteria in your bowel that were naturally there at birth, which help to digest your food and control the overgrowth of Candida.

You also need to support the liver as it is the major organ that defends against disease and a healthy liver can quickly clean out the millions of dead Candida bodies as well as their excrement. ShopFreeMart PureCopper, PureGold, Siaga, PureMag and D-Cal all support the liver in its important function of cleansing toxins from the body.

Canker Sores

Canker sores are caused by bacterial or viral infections. Herpes virus is often associated with canker sores. These infections feed on the acids and sugars found in the body and destroy the tissue in the mouth.

Pure Silver kills both bacteria and viruses and can help improve the issues quickly. Twice daily, hold 3 droppers of ShopFreeMart PureSilver in your mouth for six minutes and then swallow it. PureSilver can also be applied topically to the wound several times throughout the day.

If the canker sore is a result of the herpes virus, the sooner you get PureSilver directly on the wound, the sooner you can stop the virus from replicating and getting worse. You should expect the wound to improve twice as fast with PureSilver applied to the canker sore than if it were to run its course normally.

Brushing up on canker sores:

In one study, 10 people with recurrent canker sores were given two different toothpastes to use, for three months each. One contained 1.2 percent sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and the other was SLS-free. Otherwise, the toothpastes were identical. When researchers compared participants in the study, they found that the group using the SLS-free paste had 64 percent fewer canker sores than the other group.

The problem is, virtually all of the popular brands of toothpaste contain SLS. However, there are some lesser-known brands sold in health food stores that are free of this toxic compound.

Castor Oil

Castor oil for regrowing and thickening hair, eyelashes and eyebrows

Castor oil is often overlooked for its benefits for the skin and hair because of its extremely thick and sticky consistency. However, if you're looking for a cheap, natural remedy for several common skin and hair complaints, then castor oil is worth your attention.

Why would castor oil help you regrow hair - both on your head and the other two important places, the eyebrows and the eyelashes?

Castor oil is high in ricinoleic acid. This acid is a very effective natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agent. This can help keep any fungus or bacteria from inhibiting hair growth. Since the oil is also very thick, it may help to prevent hair loss simply by helping to coat the hair and protect it from falling out.

Castor oil is also high in omega 9 fatty acids, which are nourishing to both the hair and the follicle, as well as the surrounding skin. Castor oil has a unique ability to be deeply penetrating, and this helps it to deliver its nourishment deeply into the pores and the follicles that produce hair.

It also has a high gloss, so it lends a lush glossiness and shine to the hair. A little goes a long way, and it is best to only add a tiny bit to the very ends of your hair instead of putting it up near the scalp if you're just looking for a natural hair smoother.

Simply put about two drops on your hands and rub, then smooth through the ends. If you use too much, there is a fine line between subtle shine and a heavy greasiness so go very light until you figure out the amount that works right for your hair type.

If you're looking to regrow the hair on your head, you can use castor oil as a scalp treatment. However it can be tricky to get on the scalp without thinning it out with a lighter oil. You can add some melted coconut oil, apricot kernel oil or another lighter oil to help get it spreadable enough.

If you're simply looking to help thicken hair that is thinning at the edges of your hairline, you can use pure castor oil, with a light hand of course. Another use is to apply the oil to eyelashes to help thicken and strengthen them, as well as to help prevent thinning and shedding.

Castor oil for scar tissue reduction and shiny, smooth lips

Many attest to the wonders castor oil offers for keloid types of scars and other scars that involve a lot of old scar tissue. This is presumably because castor oil softens the skin so much and its ability for deep penetration through multiple skin layers.

In addition, castor oil has shown promise as a white blood cell stimulating agent. Studies have also shown that castor bean oil helps reduce the inflammatory response in subcutaneous tissue. This may be why it seems to speed wound healing, and may also contribute to its ability to reduce scarring more quickly.

Castor oil is also excellent for the lips. Our lips needs constant protection against the elements. Although our lips regenerate and recover quickly, they also dry out and begin to peel when they are dehydrated.

Castor oil not only smooths the lips with fatty acids, but it also helps protect them due to its naturally thick and immovable nature. In other words, it doesn't budge without being wiped off. It also imparts a natural shine to the lips, which makes it ideal for both improving the appearance and health of the lips.

Castor oil for detoxing the liver

Meanwhile, we can also treat the liver and one thing that works outstandingly well in tandem with castor oil are garlic chunks. Garlic Chunks can absorb poisons that the liver otherwise would not process well. Castor oil will purge the liver while the garlic will absorb the toxins, kill infection and parasites and bring oxygen in where there has been a shortage due to toxicity. It is a dynamic duo that will always yield results. (See also Liver Cleanse)

Lie on your left side and rub castor oil into your liver, which is on your right side under the lower edge of the rib cage from side to sternum. Rub about a teaspoon of the oil in very well for several minutes while relaxing as well as you can. For extra benefit, you can then use either Professor Cayenne's Deep Heating balm from Dr. Christopher Original Formulas, or Deep Tissue Ointment from Dr. Richard Shulze, on top of the castor oil. This heats it and stimulates its passage into the liver. Doing this at night, you should always experience some improvement by morning.

Castor oil is worth two chapters by itself, but it will purge tissue, improve electrical activity in the tissues, drain lymph, carry out poisons, cathart otherwise stagnant tissue and more. It is a wonder oil that dissolves all cysts, tumors and scar tissues. Furthermore, it is very inexpensive, easy to get and safe to use. Every household should have some and every condition should be considered as a candidate for castor oil treatments of some kind.

Cataracts

Cataract is the world's leading cause of blindness, with around 18 million people blind as a result. Although cataract is found all over the world, getting treatment for it is much more difficult in developing countries, and it affects children as well as adults. Many people are needlessly blind from cataract because they don't know that it can be cured.

The lens is made mostly of water and protein. Specific proteins within the lens are responsible for maintaining its clarity. Over many years, the structures of these lens proteins are altered by free radicals, ultimately leading to a gradual clouding of the lens. ShopFreeMart PureCopper and Siaga provide protection against free radical damage, with the possibility of repairing damaged DNA, which in turn could bring healing to damaged eyes.

ShopFreeMart Siaga and PureCopper are powerful free radical scavengers and should be used by everyone wanting to prevent free radical damage to the protein in the lens.

A study conducted on rat eye lenses in 2009 indicates that the dietary supplement carnosine may help to prevent, or even treat cataracts.

Cataracts, a clouding of the lens of the eye, is one of the leading causes of vision loss around the world, and can only currently be treated by surgery to replace the eye lens.

According to the American Chemical Society journal Biochemistry, researches said that tissue culture experiments demonstrated that carnosine could help prevent cloudiness on eye lenses, and could also restore clarity to clouded lenses.

Cataracts develop when the main structural protein in the lens, alpha-crystallin, forms abnormal clumps. The clumps make the lens cloudy and impair vision. Previous studies hinted that carnosine may help block the formation of these clumps.

Years ago, I read an article about cataracts, but in looking back through my notes was unable to find it. Although I can't currently verify the information, it makes perfect sense and therefore I will share it the best I can from memory.

The article said that there is a microscopic single-celled microorganism that gets into the eye and lives on the surface of the lens. It produces a calcium shell around itself (perhaps a form of excrement) that it attaches to the lens of the eye. This creates a very gradual and in the beginning, a microscopic buildup of calcium that eventually results in a visible cloudy film over the lens.

If this is true, then it would make sense to periodically spray Pure Silver into the eyes to kill the bacteria that may be producing thin layers of calcium over the lens and take ShopFreeMart products to give the eyes nutrition for optimal eye health and vision.

I frequently spray silver directly into my eyes. The lens of my eyes now appears to be clearer and I have no sign of cataracts being formed. I also see a reduction in scar tissue in the corner of one of my eyes from a previous eye injury and there is also a noticeable reduction in the red spider veins in the whites of my eyes.

Note: The lens of the eye is particularly sensitive to intense heat, and exposure to high levels of microwaves can also cause cataracts. Herbs in ShopFreeMart Siaga may help remove radiation from the body and Nano Cards may reduce their harmful effects.

Cause of Disease

Two-time Nobel Prize-winning doctor, Otto Warburg, shocked the world when he revealed that most disease is caused by insufficient levels of oxygen in the body. In fact, his studies showed that if you deprive a cell 35% of its required levels of oxygen for 48 hours, the cell is likely to become cancerous.

That's why cancer is so widespread in our modern society -- because most people suffer from oxygen deprivation. What most people don't know is that lack of oxygen is not only the underlying cause of cancer but is also the cause of most diseases from AIDS to yeast infections.

Curing cancer and other diseases, then, is just a matter of getting rid of the cause of the disease. It's as simple as that! But it's human nature to complicate the solution, and turn the simple into something complex.

Current medical research, for instance, is focused on the wrong causes of disease. Some claim that viruses, microbes, germs or harmful bacteria are the cause of cancer and other diseases. Others say it's the toxins in the food we eat, the air we breathe and the substances we consume. And still others say it's our genes or stress that causes us to acquire disease.

All of these factors characterize or accompany diseases and ultimately bring about a condition in the body (oxygen deficiency) that, in turn, causes disease. Lack of minerals gives rise to acid in the body. Acidity in the body reduces oxygen levels on a logarithmic scale and gives rise to parasites and microorganisms, which in turn reduce oxygen levels even more.

Clearly, the primary physical cause of all diseases is linked in one way or another to oxygen deficiency and when the human body is supplied with abundant amounts of oxygen, all cancer cells, viruses, harmful bacteria, pathogens and disease microorganisms are killed because they cannot survive in a high-oxygen environment. Many toxins will also be burned up in a highly oxygenated body.

However, decreasing toxicity and increasing mineral levels is a major part of increasing oxygen levels in the body.

One out of every 3 adults in America already has cancer, but most of them don't know it yet because the cancer is undiagnosed and undetected. According to the American Cancer Society, there's a 41% probability that a person will develop cancer in his or her lifetime and most will die from it. Every human being has cancer cells existing in the body, which are just seeking a low-oxygen environment where they can multiply into the full-blown disease.

Since an oxygen-rich body is uninhabitable by disease, then the solution for eradicating disease seems simple enough, doesn't it? Just supply the body with an abundant supply of oxygen, right?

Wrong! It's actually not as simple as that and here's why. Oxygen Cannot Cure Disease Unless It's Delivered to the Cells and Tissues of the Body.

Most humans are NOT able to get proper amounts of oxygen in their cells and tissues due partly to poor air quality, poor breathing habits and oxygen-depleting activities. Minerals are necessary to deliver oxygen to the cells and tissues and most people lack the necessary minerals.

In order for oxygen to eradicate disease, it must be delivered not just to the lungs and bloodstream, but also to the cells and tissues of the body. That's why other oxygen-based therapies such as oxygenated water and even pure oxygen delivered through a mask are not always effective in treating disease. While they may supply the body with oxygen, they lack the minerals that break the oxygen free from the hemoglobin molecule, which means the oxygen is not delivered to the cells and tissues. Such oxygen-based therapies, therefore, are seldom effective in preventing and curing disease.

Taking just 5-minutes a day to practice proper breathing exercises, combined with some simple physical exercise is going to put more oxygen in your blood than a treatment in a hyperbaric chamber. (See Breathing Exercises)

Taking ShopFreeMart PureCopper every day is going to increase oxygen and hemoglobin dissociation, thereby maximizing the delivery of oxygen from the blood to the cells.

A change in dietary intake of acid foods and drinks will also help and is highly recommended for anyone suffering from one of the major diseases.

This may be "the world's greatest healing miracle of all time," and is the only one that really gets to the cause of all diseases - too much acid - not enough minerals and not enough oxygen.

Cavities

Teeth are susceptible to cavities. Though the enamel is very hard, sugar and bacteria have the ability to eat away the enamel and cause cavities.

Rinsing your mouth with Pure Silver regularly will kill cavity-causing bacteria. Rinse your mouth for six minutes with 2-3 droppers of ShopFreeMart PureSilver added to a small amount of purified water  twice daily. You can swallow this mixture afterward to benefit your entire body.

Lack of boron and or magnesium in the body causes bones and teeth to become weak from loss of calcium. Most people have plenty of calcium, but at the same time they are not getting enough magnesium and boron to prevent the teeth from getting cavities.

Typical magnesium supplements do not work unless you take hydrochloric acid along with it and if you take enough to prevent cavities, it will give you diarrhea. ShopFreeMart PureMag is the best and most absorbable form of magnesium that will typically not give you diarrhea.

ShopFreeMart D-Cal is also the best boron supplement that we have been able to find and when taken regularly can reduce calcium loss by 50% or more and can help the body maintain healthy bones and teeth.

Cell Phones / WIFI / EMF

ElectromagneticHealth.org founder Camilla Rees presented an overview of an emerging public health issue -- excessive exposures to microwave radiation from wireless technologies.

Illnesses linked to electromagnetic radiation exposure include many cancers, neurological conditions, ADD, sleep disorders, depression, autism, behavioral problem, cognitive problems, cardiovascular irregularities, hormone disruption, immune system disorders, metabolism changes, stress, fertility impairment, increased blood brain barrier permeability, mineral disruption, DNA damage and much, much more.

Dr. Magda Havas, Associate Professor at Trent University in Canada is an expert in electromagnetic fields of many kinds, examined some of the harmful effects associated with cell phones, and noted how similar they are to cigarettes in many ways.

A comparison of cell phone use, which continues its meteoric rise and cigarette smoking, is illustrative. Just a few of the similarities between the two habits include:

1. Manufacturers and industry leaders either hide or debunk unfavorable study results and continue to promote their products despite awareness of the significant dangers to public health.

2. Government conflict of interest created by lobbies for both industries and revenues collected from use taxes.

3. Expensive, effective marketing campaigns aimed at every segment of society, including children.

4. Massive amounts of scientific data proving beyond a shadow of a doubt the direct link between these products and life-threatening damage to the human body.

The primary distinction between cell phone use and cigarettes is that smoking has been around long enough to confirm it can indeed be a fatal habit.

The evidence of health problems from cell phone usage continues to pour in. These are just a few recent examples of study data linking electromagnetic radiation and cell phone use to a stunning array of serious health concerns:

At a recent Senate Committee hearing, witnesses testified that cell phone use has been linked to salivary gland tumors.

Wearing a cell phone on your hip - either on your belt or in a pocket has been linked to decreased bone density in the pelvic region. All the other vital organs located in your pelvic region - your liver, kidney, bladder, colon and reproductive organs are also susceptible to radiation damage.

Proximity to cell phone towers causes an increase in the symptoms of electromagnetic hypersensitivity, including fatigue, sleep disturbances, visual and auditory disturbances, and cardiovascular effects, just to name a few.

Cell Phones and Brain Cancer:

A review of 11 long-term epidemiologic studies published in the journal Surgical Neurology revealed that using a cell phone for 10 or more years doubles the risk of being diagnosed with a brain tumor on the same side of the head where the cell phone is typically held.

Brain cancer has now surpassed leukemia as the number one cancer killer in children.

Other health hazards are linked to cell phone use. In addition to the widespread concern about brain cancer, scientists have found that information-carrying radio waves transmitted by cell phones and other wireless devices can:

Harms your blood cells and causes cellular changes

Damages your DNA

Causes nerve-cell damage

Damages your eyes

Causes sleep disruptions, fatigue and headaches

Accelerates and contributes to onset of autism and Alzheimer's disease.

Steps You Can Take to Protect Yourself and Your Family

While you can't completely avoid radiation in today's wireless world, if you're ready to give up your cell phone, you can virtually eliminate that one hazard, at least.

If you're not prepared to take that step, you can minimize exposure by heeding the following advice:

Children Should Never Use Cell Phones: Barring a life-threatening emergency, children should not use a cell phone, or a wireless device of any type. Even if not connected to the internet of another phone, wireless devices concentrate microwaves being emitted by cell towers 24/7, plus the fact that children are far more vulnerable to cell phone radiation than adults, because of their thinner skull bones.

In Dr. Havas' YouTube video, you will see three images of cell phone radiation penetrating the skulls of an adult, a child of ten, and a five-year-old. This is from the research of Dr. Om Ghandi of the University of Utah. Those depictions are a graphic representation of just how deeply into your child's brain cell phone radiation can reach.

This video shows how WiFi is measured using an EMF meter. You can hear the nerve shattering rat-a-tat-tat vibration that these waves produce and although inaudible to the ear, they are definitely destructive to your cells.

Reduce Your Cell Phone Use: Turn your cell phone off more often. Reserve it for emergencies or important matters. As long as your cell phone is on, it emits radiation intermittently, even when you are not actually making a call.

Purchase ShopFreeMart Anti-Radiation stickers and Nano Cards for your cell phones, ipads, laptops, desktops, routers, televisions, etc. Also carry Nano Cards on your person to help prevent the damaging effect of cell tower radiation to you body.

Use a Land Line at Home and at Work: Although more and more people are switching to using cell phones as their exclusive phone contact, it is a dangerous trend and you can choose to opt out of the madness.

Reduce or Eliminate Your Use of Other Wireless Devices: You would be wise to cut down your use of these devices. Just as with cell phones, it is important to ask yourself whether or not you really need to use them every single time.

If you must use a portable home phone, use the older kind that operates at 900 MHz. They are no safer during calls, but at least many of them do not broadcast constantly even when no call is being made. Note the only way to truly be sure if there is an exposure from your cordless phone is to measure with an electro smog meter, and it must be one that goes up to the frequency of your portable phone, so old meters won't help much.

You can pretty much be sure your portable phone is a problem if the technology is DECT, or digitally enhanced cordless technology.

Use Your Cell Phone Only Where Reception is Good: The weaker the reception, the more power your phone must use to transmit, and the more power it uses, the more radiation it emits, and the deeper the dangerous radio waves penetrate into your body. Ideally, you should only use your phone with full bars and good reception.

Also seek to avoid carrying your phone on your body as that merely maximizes any potential exposure. Ideally put it in your purse or carrying bag.

Don't assume that one brand is safer than another. There's no such thing as a "safe" cell phone.

Keep your cell phone away from your body when it is turned on. The most dangerous place to be, in terms of radiation exposure, is within about six inches of the emitting antenna. You do not want any part of your body within that area.

Use safer headset technology. Wired headsets will certainly allow you to keep the cell phone farther away from your body, however, if a wired headset is not well-shielded and most of them are not, the wire itself acts as an antenna attracting ambient information carrying radio waves and transmitting radiation directly to your brain.

Make sure that the wire used to transmit the signal to your ear is shielded.

The best kind of headset to use is a combination shielded wire and air-tube headset. These operate like a stethoscope, transmitting the information to your head as an actual sound wave; although there are wires that still must be shielded, there is no wire that goes all the way up to your head.

Nano card on smart meter

You no doubt have heard a lot about the destructive effects that smart meters have on your health. If you or a neighbor has a smart meter, use duct tape to apply a ShopFreeMart Nano Card as depicted in the following picture. This has been tested and proven effective at preventing most of the destructive frequencies from entering your home.

Louis Slesin, Editor of Microwave News, offers this revealing but troubling response: "Much of the comfort in our modern life relies on not caring, on refusing to recognize the dangers of microwave radiation."

The evidence has been pouring in for a long time and it's not pretty. So why isn't anyone in America doing anything about it?

We can't look to either the government or the telecom industry to do the right thing. It is up to you to learn how to sensibly protect yourself in high EMF environments. The Web site ElectromagneticHealth.org also offers ten free audio interviews with some of the world's leading experts in the field of EMF.

There's no doubt in my mind that if our society keeps ignoring this issue, we will pay a very steep price in declining health over the coming generations.

It's time to care, and it's time to take a stand. You can help to spread the word about the dangers of cell phones and electromagnetic radiation by sharing this website.

For your own protection, apply ShopFreeMart Anti-Radiation Stickers to your cell phones, bluetooth and other mobile devices. Carry ShopFreeMart Nano Cards on your person and put them near your destop monitor, WiFi router and any other device that emits electro-magnetic frequencies. Also, ShopFreeMart Siaga and D-Cal should be taken daily to help minimize the effects of radiation along with eating a lot of green leafy organic vegetables. Chlorella and cilantro are especially good to help detoxify the cells.

Center of the Bible

Psalms 117 is the shortest chapter in the Bible.

Psalms 119 is the longest chapter in the Bible.

Psalms 118 is the center of the Bible.

There are 594 chapters before Psalms 118.

There are 594 chapters after Psalms 118.

These numbers added together equal 1188.

The center verse in the Bible is Psalms 118:8

"It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man."

Does this verse say something significant about God's perfect will for our lives?

Asking, "Lord, what will thou have me do?" and then doing it, is God's definition of perfection. (See Perfection)

The next time you want to center your will in the will of God, just go to the center of his word and ask, "Lord, what will thou have me do?"

Psalms 118:8 - Isn't it odd how this worked out - or was God in the center of it?

Checking In Today

A minister passing through his church in the middle of the day,
Decided to pause by the altar and see who had come to pray.
Just then the back door opened, a man came down the aisle.
The minister frowned as he saw - the man hadn't shaved in a while.

His shirt was kind of shabby and his coat was worn and frayed.
The man knelt awhile and bowed his head, then rose and walked away.
Like clockwork in the days that came, each noon showed up this chap,
Each time he knelt just for a moment, a lunch pail in his lap.

Well, the minister's suspicions grew, with robbery his main fear,
He decided to stop the man and ask, "What are you doing here?"
The old man worked down the road; lunchtime was half an hour.
This also was his prayer time, for finding strength and power.

"I can't stay long cause I have to walk and the factory's far away;
And as I kneel here praying, this is what I say:
"I just came again to tell you Lord, how happy I have been,
Since we found each other's friendship and you took away my sin.

Don't know exactly how to pray, but I think about you every day.
So Jesus, this is your friend Jim, checking in again today."
The minister feeling foolish told Jim that that was fine.
Said he was welcome in his church, to come and pray anytime.

Jim smiled and said "See you tomorrow" as he hurried to the door.
The minister then knelt at the altar, like he'd never done before.
His cold heart melted, warmed with love, as he met with Jesus there.
His spirit soured on wings of a dove, as he repeated old Jim's prayer:

"I just came again to tell you Lord, how happy that I've been
Since we found each other's friendship and you took away my sin.
I don't know much of how to pray, but I think about you every day.
So Jesus, this is me Lord, just checking in today."

Past noon one day, the minister noticed, that old Jim hadn't come.
As more days passed without him, he began to worry some.
At the factory, he inquired, and learned that Jim was ill.
The hospital staff was worried too, though he'd given them a thrill.

The week that Jim was with them, brought changes to the ward.
His smiles and a joy contagious; changed lives, were his reward.
The head nurse could not understand why this man was so glad?
No flowers, no calls nor cards came, not a visitor he had.

The minister stayed by his bedside, he voiced the same concern;
No friends had come to show they cared; he had nowhere to turn.
Looking surprised, old Jim spoke up, and with a winsome smile;
"The nurse is wrong, she couldn't know, that in here all the while,

Every day at noon my friend is here, a very dear friend, you see,
He sits right down and takes my hand, leans over and says to me:
"Just came again to tell you Jim, how happy I have been,
Since we found this friendship, and I took away your sin.

I always love to hear you pray; I think about you every day.
And so Jim, this is Jesus, checking in again today."

Chicken Pox

Because chicken pox is a virus, Pure Silver can be very beneficial in neutralizing the problem. It can also help with the associated blistering and scarring. By applying within four hours of the first outbreak, Pure Silver will help reduce the impact to the skin. Often the blisters will not completely arise and scarring will be lessened.

If you already have blisters, applying topically 1-4 times daily will help conditions improve quickly. In addition, you should take 1-2 droppers of Pure Silver 3x daily. Chicken pox can return years later in the form of shingles. Taking internally can also help prevent shingles.

Cholesterol

Cholesterol was not a problem until the discovery of the first statin drug. When it was discovered that statin drugs would reliably reduce cholesterol, then doctors were hired and reports were written to create a public scare about cholesterol.

"Reduction of cholesterol" through the use of these drugs is now proving to increase heart disease among other things.

The word "cholesterol" comes from the Greek word chole, meaning "bile", and the Greek word stereos, meaning "solid, stiff".

Cholesterol is a fat (lipid), which is produced by the liver and is crucial for normal body functioning. Cholesterol exists in the outer layer of every cell in our body and has many functions. It is a waxy steroid and is transported in the blood plasma of all animals. It is the main sterol synthesized by animals - small amounts are also synthesized in plants and fungi.

What are the functions of cholesterol?

Builds and maintains cell membranes (outer layer)

Prevents crystallization of hydrocarbons in the membrane

Essential for determining which molecules can pass into the cell and which cannot (cell membrane permeability)

Involved in the production of sex hormones (androgens and estrogens)

Essential for the production of hormones released by the adrenal glands (cortisol, corticosterone, aldosterone, and others)

Aids in the production of bile

Converts sunshine to vitamin D

Important for the metabolism of fat-soluble vitamins, including vitamins A, D, E, and K

Insulates nerve fibers

Cholesterol is carried in the blood by molecules called lipoproteins. A lipoprotein is any complex or compound containing both lipid (fat) and protein. The three main types are:

LDL (low density lipoprotein) - people often refer to it as bad cholesterol. LDL is not a problem for healthy people, however toxins in the blood create oxygen radicals that attack the walls of the blood vessels, essentially causing small holes in the blood vessel walls. LDL carries cholesterol from the liver to cells, which then attaches itself to the damaged blood vessels to keep blood from escaping, much like a patch on a punctured tire.

The more toxins- the more free radicals - the more damage, and the more buildup of cholesterol to patch the holes, which can eventually restrict blood-flow and cause arterial disease. LDL may "eventually" be the problem (blocking arteries), but it certainly didn't cause the problem, neither will reduction of LDL levels solve the problem, any more than removing patches from a tire will fix a flat.

HDL (high density lipoprotein) is mostly referred to as good cholesterol. Experts say HDL prevents arterial disease. HDL does the opposite of LDL - HDL takes cholesterol away from the cells and back to the liver. In the liver it is either broken down or expelled from the body as waste.

Triglycerides are the chemical forms in which most fat exists in the body, as well as in food. They are present in blood plasma. Triglycerides, in association with cholesterol, form the plasma lipids (blood fat). Triglycerides in plasma originate either from fats in our food, or are made in the body from other energy sources, such as carbohydrates. Calories that we consume but which are not used immediately by our tissues are converted into triglycerides and stored in fat cells. When your body needs energy and there is no food, triglycerides will be released from fat cells and converted to energy.

What are normal cholesterol levels? The amount of cholesterol in human blood can vary from 64.8 mg/dl to 140.4 mg/dl. Any reading over 108 mg/dl is considered to be high and your doctor may prescribe statin drugs to bring it down.

Millions of Americans are on statins to lower cholesterol. But statins can have some serious side effects, including neuropathy, rhabdomyolysis, and memory loss.

It is always better to look to the cause of disease and underactive thyroid is a major cause of all diseases and even though blood tests may indicate that the thyroid is normal, eighty percent of Americans suffer from an underactive thyroid. (See Thyroid)

Most people who have "high" cholesterol are hypothyroid. Boosting the thyroid will almost always reduce cholesterol levels to that which is considered to be safe. It becomes obvious then to the observer that thyroid was at least partially responsible for the problem and should be the first place to look when levels are above normal.

Taking ShopFreeMart PureMag can greatly reduce the likelihood of LDL cholesterol. The reason may be three-fold:

They support healthy thyroid function

They neutralize free radicals that may damage arterial walls

They help remove harmful toxins that are the primary cause of free radicals

They provide minerals necessary to every organ, system and function of the body

Breathing exercises can also help normalize thyroid and reduce cholesterol levels. (See Breathing Exercises)

Christmas Story

In September 1960, I woke up one morning with six hungry babies and just 75 cents in my pocket. Their father was gone. The boys ranged from three months to seven years; their sister was two.

Their Dad had never been much more than a presence they feared. Whenever they heard his tires crunch on the gravel driveway they would scramble to hide under their beds. He did manage to leave $15 a week to buy groceries. Now that he had decided to leave, there would be no more beatings, but no food either.

If there was a welfare system in effect in southern Indiana at that time, I certainly knew nothing about it. I scrubbed the kids until they looked brand new and then put on my best homemade dress, loaded them into the rusty old 51 Chevy and drove off to find a job. The seven of us went to every factory, store and restaurant in our small town. No luck.

The kids stayed crammed into the car and tried to be quiet while I tried to convince who ever would listen that I was willing to learn or do anything. I had to have a job; still no luck. The last place we went to, just a few miles out of town was an old Root Beer Barrel drive-in that had been converted into a truck stop. It was called the Big Wheel.

An old lady named Granny owned the place and she peeked out of the window from time to time at all those kids. She needed someone on the graveyard shift, 11 at night until seven in the morning. She paid 65 cents an hour, and I could start that night.

I raced home and called the teenager down the street that baby-sat for people. I bargained with her to come and sleep on my sofa for a dollar a night. She could arrive with her pajamas on and the kids would already be asleep. This seemed like a good arrangement to her, so we made a deal. That night when the little ones and I knelt to say our prayers, we all thanked God for finding Mommy a job. And so I started at the Big Wheel.

When I got home in the mornings I woke the baby-sitter up and sent her home with one dollar of my tip money-- fully half of what I averaged every night.

As the weeks went by, heating bills added a strain to my meager wage. The tires on the old Chevy had the consistency of penny balloons and began to leak. I had to fill them with air on the way to work and again every morning before I could go home.

One bleak fall morning, I dragged myself to the car to go home and found four tires in the back seat. New tires! There was no note, no nothing, and just those beautiful brand new tires. Had angels taken up residence in Indiana? I wondered. I made a deal with the local service station. In exchange for his mounting the new tires, I would clean up his office.

I remember it took me a lot longer to scrub his floor than it did for him to do the tires. I was now working six nights instead of five and it still wasn't enough. Christmas was coming and I knew there would be no money for toys for the kids. I found a can of red paint and started repairing and painting some old toys. Then I hid them in the basement so there would be something for Santa to deliver on Christmas morning.

Clothes were a worry too. I was sewing patches on top of patches on the boy's pants and soon they would be too far gone to repair. On Christmas Eve the usual customers were drinking coffee in the Big Wheel. There were the truckers, Les, Frank, and Jim, and a state trooper named Joe.

A few musicians were hanging around after a gig at the Legion and were dropping nickels in the pinball machine. The regulars all just sat around and talked through the wee hours of the morning and then left to get home before the sun came up.

When it was time for me to go home at seven o'clock on Christmas morning, to my amazement, my old battered Chevy was filled to the top with boxes of all shapes and sizes.

I quickly opened the driver's side door, crawled inside and kneeled in the front facing the back seat. Reaching back, I pulled off the lid of the top box. Inside was a whole case of little blue jeans, sizes 2-10! I looked inside another box: It was full of shirts to go with the jeans.

Then I peeked inside some of the other boxes. There was candy and nuts and bananas and bags of groceries. There was an enormous ham for baking, and canned vegetables and potatoes. There was pudding and Jell-O and cookies, pie filling and flour. There was whole bag of laundry supplies and cleaning items. And there were five toy trucks and one beautiful little doll.

As I drove back through empty streets as the sun slowly rose on the most amazing Christmas Day of my life, I was sobbing with gratitude. And I will never forget the joy on the faces of my little ones that precious morning.

Yes, there were angels in Indiana that long-ago December. And they

all hung out at the Big Wheel truck stop.

I believe that many prayers are answered through angels.

I also believe that sometimes there is a shortage of angels.

I also believe that I can be one of those angels if I choose to.

Meister Eckhart said, "Compassion is the first outburst of everything God does."

You may be going through a tough time right now but if you do something nice that brightens another person's life, your life will also be blessed!

What those angels did at the Big Wheel continues to bless lives each time someone reads this story.

Chronic Fatigue

Ordinary fatigue can be as simple as having a blocked nostril. Although we use both nostrils to inhale and exhale, they each have a different function. Some cultures have long recognized this fact and have used the symbol of the sun to represent the right nostril and the moon to represent the left nostril.

If you feel tired, close your left nostril and breathe through your right nostril. After a few minutes you will feel your mind will feel refreshed.

During a headache, close your right nostril and use your left nostril to breathe. In about 5 minutes, your headache will be gone.

You may begin to pay attention the moment you wake up to see which nostril is more open and thus takes in air faster. If the left is faster, you will feel tired. So, close your left nostril and use your right nostril for breathing, you will feel refreshed quickly.

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) on the other hand is a debilitating health disorder generally accompanied by persistent fatigue not due to ongoing exertion and not substantially relieved by rest.

This disorder may also be referred to as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), post-viral fatigue syndrome (PVFS), chronic fatigue immune dysfunction syndrome (CFIDS), or several other terms.

Symptoms of CFS include post-exertional malaise; unrefreshing sleep; widespread muscle and joint pain; sore throat; headaches of a type not previously experienced; cognitive difficulties; chronic, often severe, mental and physical exhaustion, muscle weakness, increased sensitivity to light, sounds and smells, orthostatic intolerance, digestive disturbances, depression, and cardiac and respiratory problems.

CFS actually results from widespread acidic toxins throughout the entire body. These acids dissolve body tissues, which causes pain and does not allow the patient to get proper rest. Yeast is a common factor, mostly because yeast thrives in an acidic environment.

Yeast and fungus inside your intestines can cause muscle pain and symptoms of chronic fatigue, depression and attention deficit disorder. It can also result in symptoms of fibromyalgia, headaches, lymph problems and autoimmune disorders, including lupus.

Yeast can also cause fruits and sugars to ferment in the intestines creating a neurotoxin and low dose alcohol toxicity. Yeast can move from the intestines and go into the brain. This can explain much of the mental fog and mental exhaustion.

By cleansing yeast out of the system, most fibromyalgia patients can control some of their symptoms. Many people have successfully killed the yeast and fungus that are causing pain throughout the body by taking 1-2 droppers of ShopFreeMart PureSilver 3x daily.

PureSilver can also be diluted using purified water to inject into the rectum or vagina using a syringe or douche bottle. Use 1-3 droppers of ShopFreeMart PureSilver (depending upon the severity of the infection) to each oz. of water before injecting.

When large numbers of yeast colonies are killed rapidly, the cleanse may be accompanied by one to three weeks of flu-like symptoms until the dead yeast is washed out of the body.

Drinking plenty of purified water with ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops Concentrate added to it can help remove toxins that are being released as a result of any kind of detoxification program.

Acidophilus supports a healthy intestinal flora, which is an important part of the body's defense against the overgrowth of yeast and fungus. ShopFreeMart Siaga and D-Cal also have anti-fungal properties, which in turn helps control the growth of yeast. ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops, Immunize and PureMag support proper pH by neutralizing acid in the body and should be a daily regimen for anyone suffering from pain.

Copper is the mineral most associated with lack of energy and chronic fatigue because copper is necessary for the manufacture of ATP. ShopFreeMart PureCopper is the brand that I use and recommend.

ShopFreeMart PureSilver can be diluted with distilled water and put into a spray bottle and applied to sore muscles once or twice daily as needed for pain or aches. ShopFreeMart Vitalize provides 22 amino acids and other nutrients than may help CFS. Liver cleansing is also very helpful. (See Liver Cleanse).

Taking ShopFreeMart PureMag and Immunize regularly and putting a ShopFreeMart Nano Card under your pillow may help to improve the quality of sleep allowing the body to be more rested, as well as providing fuel to the cells for a more pure energy.

The energy derived from ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops, PureCopper, PureMag and Vitalize is unlike any stimulant. It is more like putting high octane fuel in a car that is struggling to run properly on a low quality fuel supply.

Cinnamon

The Power of Cinnamon:

Just half a teaspoon of cinnamon a day significantly reduces blood sugar levels in diabetics, a new study has found. The effect, which can be produced even by soaking a cinnamon stick in your tea, could also benefit millions of non-diabetics who have blood sugar problem but are unaware of it.

The active ingredient in cinnamon is a water-soluble polyphenol compound called MHCP. In test tube experiments, MHCP mimics insulin, activates its receptor, and works synergistically with insulin in cells.

Volunteers with Type 2 diabetes were given one, three or six grams of cinnamon powder a day, in capsules after meals.

All responded within weeks, with blood sugar levels that were on average 20 per cent lower than a control group. Some even achieved normal blood sugar levels. Tellingly, blood sugar started creeping up again after the diabetics stopped taking cinnamon.

Cinnamon also lowered levels of fats and "bad" cholesterol in the blood, which are also partly controlled by insulin. And in test tube experiments it neutralized free radicals, damaging chemicals, which are elevated in diabetics.

Cinnamon's essential oils also qualify it as an "anti-microbial" food, and cinnamon has been studied for its ability to help stop the growth of bacteria as well as fungi, including the commonly problematic yeast, Candida.

In a study, published in the August 2003 issue of the International Journal of Food Microbiology, the addition of just a few drops of cinnamon essential oil to approximately 3 ounces of carrot broth, which was then refrigerated, inhibited the growth of the food borne pathogenic Bacillus cereus for at least 60 days. When the broth was refrigerated without the addition of cinnamon oil, the pathogenic B. cereus flourished despite the cold temperature. In addition, researchers noted that the addition of cinnamon not only acted as an effective preservative but improved the flavor of the broth.

Chewing cinnamon flavored gum or just smelling cinnamon enhanced study participants' cognitive processing. Specifically, cinnamon improved participants' scores on attention related processes, virtual recognition memory, working memory, and visual-motor speed while working on a computer-based program.

Hint: simmer a few cinnamon sticks in water while your kids are doing their homework; this will serve as wonderful yet non-toxic air freshener for your home.

Cinnamon has also been valued in energy-based medical systems, such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, for its warming qualities. In these traditions, cinnamon has been used to provide relief when faced with the onset of a cold or flu, especially when mixed in a tea with some fresh ginger.

Cinnamon is the inner bark of a tropical evergreen tree. There are many different species, between 50 and 250, depending on which botanist you choose to believe. The two main varieties are Cinnamomum cassia and Cinnamomum zeylanicum. C. zeylanicum is also known as Ceylon cinnamon (the source of its Latin name, zeylanicum), or 'true cinnamon' which is a lighter color and possessing a sweeter, more delicate flavor than cassia. A native of Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon) the best cinnamon grows along the coastal strip near Colombo.

In ancient Egypt cinnamon was more precious than gold. This is not too surprising though, as in Egypt the abundance of gold made it a fairly common ornamental metal. Nero, emperor of Rome in the first century AD, burned a year's supply of cinnamon on his wife's funeral pyre - an extravagant gesture meant to signify the depth of his loss.

The demand for cinnamon was enough to launch a number of explorations in search of it. The Portuguese invaded Sri Lanka immediately after reaching India in 1536. The Sinhalese King paid the Portuguese tributes of 110,000 kilograms of cinnamon annually.

The Dutch captured Sri Lanka in 1636 and established a system of cultivation that exists to this day. In its wild state, trees grow high on stout trunks. Under cultivation, the shoots are continually cropped almost to ground level, resulting in a low bush, dense with thin leafy branches. From these, come the finest quills.

Cinnamon comes in 'quills', strips of bark rolled one in another. The pale brown to tan rolled strips are generally thin, the spongy outer bark having been scraped off. The best varieties are pale and parchment-like in appearance. True cinnamon is very similar to cassia, and in North America little distinction is given, though cassia tends to dominate the market. Cinnamon is also available ground, and can be distinguished from cassia by its lighter color and much finer powder.

Whole quills will keep their flavor indefinitely. Unfortunately it is difficult to grind so for many recipes the powdered variety will be preferred. Like other powdered spices cinnamon loses flavor quickly, so should be purchased in small quantities and kept away from light in airtight containers.

Cassia and cinnamon have similar culinary uses, but since it is more delicate, cinnamon is used more in dessert dishes. It is commonly used in cakes and other baked goods, milk and rice puddings, chocolate dishes and fruit desserts, particularly apples and pears.

The largest importer of Sri Lankan cinnamon is Mexico, where it is drunk with coffee and chocolate and brewed as a tea.

Medicinal Properties:

Recent studies have determined that consuming as little as one-half teaspoon of real cinnamon each day may reduce blood sugar, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels by as much as 20% in Type II diabetes patients who are not taking insulin it is mildly carminative and used to treat nausea and flatulence. It is also used alone or in combination to treat diarrhea.

Chinese herbalists tell of older people, in their 70s and 80s, developing a cough accompanied by frequent spitting of whitish phlegm. A helpful remedy, they suggest, is chewing and swallowing a very small pinch of powdered cinnamon. This remedy can also help people with cold feet and hands, especially at night.

Germany's Commission E approves Cinnamon for appetite loss and indigestion. The primary chemical constituents of this herb include cinnamaldehyde, gum, tannin, mannitol, coumarins, and essential oils (aldehydes, eugenol, pinene).

Cinnamon is predominantly used as a carminative addition to herbal prescriptions. It is used in flatulent dyspepsia, dyspepsia with nausea, intestinal colic and digestive atony associated with cold & debilitated conditions. It relieves nausea and vomiting, and, because of its mild astringency, it is particularly useful in infantile diarrhea.

The cinnamaldehyde component is hypotensive and spasmolytic, and increases peripheral blood flow. The essential oil of this herb is a potent antibacterial, anti-fungal, and uterine stimulant. The various terpenoids found in the volatile oil are believed to account for Cinnamon's medicinal effects. Test tube studies also show that Cinnamon can augment the action of insulin.

Cultivation:

Cinnamon is from a tropical evergreen tree of the laurel family growing up to 7m (56 ft) in its wild state. It has deeply-veined ovate leaves that are dark green on top, lighter green underneath. The bark is smooth and yellowish. Both the bark and leaves are aromatic. It has small yellowish-white flowers with a disagreeable odor that bear dark purple berries. It prefers a hot, wet tropical climate at a low altitude. Cultivated plantations grow trees as small bushes, no taller than 3 m (10 ft), as the stems are continually cut back to produce new stems for bark. The outer bark, cork and the pithy inner lining are scraped off and the remaining bark is left to dry completely, when it curls and rolls into quills. Several are rolled together to produce a compact final product, which is then cut into uniform lengths and graded according to thickness, aroma and appearance.

Other Names: Ceylon Cinnamon, True Cinnamon.

Honey and Cinnamon

Honey is the only food on the planet that will not spoil or rot, however, when left in a cool dark place for a long time it will crystallize. When this happens I loosen the lid, boil some water, and sit the honey container in the hot water, off the heat and let it liquefy. It is then as good as it ever was. Never boil honey or put it in a microwave. Doing so will kill the enzymes in the honey.

Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases, but you need to know the source of the honey and make sure it is raw and not pasteurized. Today's science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients.

I personally make no claims, however Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada, in its issue dated 17 January, 1995 has given the following list of diseases that can be cured by honey and cinnamon as researched by western scientists:

Heart Diseases

Drinking Honey and Cinnamon tea daily reduces cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack, even those who have already had an attack. Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heartbeat. In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully. As you age, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and veins.

Arthritis

Arthritis patients may take daily, morning and night, one cup of hot water with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. If taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week, out of the 200 people so treated, practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain, and within a month, mostly all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis started walking without pain.

Bladder Infections

Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder.

Cholesterol

Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol patient were found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol is cured.

Colds

Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic coughs, colds, and clear the sinuses.

Upset Stomach

Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears
stomach ulcers from the root.

Gas

According to the studies done in India and Japan, it is revealed that if Honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.

Immune System

Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacterial and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of Honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacterial and viral diseases.

Indigestion

Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.

Influenza

A scientist in Spain has proven that honey contains a natural ingredient, which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.

Longevity

Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Take four spoons of honey, one spoon of cinnamon powder, and three cups place in boiling hot water (removed from burner) and make like a tea.

Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Life spans also increase and even a 100-year-old, starts performing the chores of a 20-year-old.

Pimples

Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste. Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it next morning with warm water. If done daily for two weeks, it removes pimples from the root.

Skin Infections

Applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin infections.

Weight Loss

Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast on an empty stomach, and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup of water. If taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.

Cancer

Research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones has been cured successfully. Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder 3 times daily for one month.

Fatigue

Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts, are more alert and flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half-tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M. when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, increases the vitality of the body within a week.

Bad Breath

People of South America, first thing in the morning, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water, so their breath stays fresh throughout the day.

Hearing Loss

Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal parts will restore hearing.

For the best results you need to use Real Cinnamon and raw, unpasteurized Honey.

Clay Balls

A man was exploring caves by the Seashore. In one of the caves he found a canvas bag with a bunch of hardened clay balls. It was like someone had rolled clay balls and left them out in the sun to bake. They didn't look like much, but they intrigued the man, so he took the bag out of the cave with him. As he strolled along the beach, he would throw the clay balls one at a time out into the ocean as far as he could.

He thought little about it, until he dropped one of the clay balls and it cracked open on a rock. Inside was a beautiful, precious stone!

Excited, the man started breaking open the remaining clay balls. Each contained a similar treasure. He found thousands of dollars' worth of jewels in the 20 or so clay balls he had left.

Then it struck him. He had been on the beach a long time. He had thrown maybe 50 or 60 of the clay balls with their hidden treasure into the ocean waves. Instead of thousands of dollars in treasure, he could have taken home tens of thousands, but he had just thrown it away!

It's like that with people. We look at someone, maybe even ourselves, and we see the external clay vessel. It doesn't look like much from the outside. It isn't always beautiful or sparkling, so we discount it.

We see that person as less important than someone more beautiful or stylish or well known or wealthy. But we have not taken the time to find the treasure hidden inside that person.

There is a treasure in each and every one of us. If we take the time to get to know that person, and if we ask God to show us that person the way He sees them, then the clay begins to peel away and the brilliant gem begins to shine forth.

May we not come to the end of our lives and find out that we have thrown away a fortune in friendships because the gems were hidden in bits of clay. May we see the people in our world as God sees them.

MCT Oil vs. Coconut Oil: The Truth Exposed

There is a lot of misinformation on the Internet regarding the differences between MCT oil and coconut oil. So let's clearly define what each product is and how they differ. Once we have this proper understanding, the myths regarding MCT oil that are being propagated will become very obvious.

What are MCTs?

Before we can begin our comparison of MCT oil and coconut oil, the first thing we have to do is define "MCT." MCTs stands for medium chain triglycerides. Another term for "triglycerides" is fatty acids. So another way of referring to MCTs is MCFA (medium chain fatty acids).

"Medium" references the chain length of the fatty acids. Oils can contain short chain, medium chain, or long chain fatty acids. Most oils are a combination of all three types.

Medium chain fatty acids contain between 6 and 12 carbon chains [1]. They are:

  • C6 - Caproic Acid
  • C8 - Caprylic Acid
  • C10 - Capric Acid
  • C12 - Lauric Acid

These medium chain fatty acids are known to have tremendous health benefits.

C6 through C10, although found in coconut oil, are more predominant in other places in nature, such as goat's milk. This is reflected in their names, taken from "capra," which means "goat."

The most predominant MCT found in coconut oil, however, is lauric acid. Coconut oil is about 50% lauric acid, making it nature's richest source of lauric acid.

While all the MCTs have known health benefits, lauric acid is the most well-known of the four. Lauric acid is prized around the world as a powerful antimicrobial agent, used in both food preservation as well as in drugs and nutraceuticals.

A recent search on the popular International Trading website Alibaba.com, for example, showed the following results when searching for each particular fatty acid:

  • Lauric acid - 1,861 Products from 194 Suppliers
  • Caprylic Acid - 451 Products from 66 Suppliers
  • Caproic acid - 393 Products from 69 Suppliers
  • Capric Acid - 206 Products from 56 Suppliers

Lauric acid products total more than the three capra MCT fatty acid products combined.

MCT Oil is Manufactured - Coconut Oil is Natural

Coconut oil in nature contains all four MCTs. In addition, it contains a small percentage of longer chain fatty acids.

MCT oil, on the other hand, is not an oil found in nature, but is manufactured by machine to separate out the medium chain fatty acids from the rest of the oil. The fatty acids are extracted through an industrial process of "fractionation".

The logic is that since MCTs are healthy, the more the better. Therefore, it is a popular belief that MCT oil is healthier than coconut oil. But is this true?

What is MCT Oil?

Where the logic fails in comparing MCT oil to coconut oil, is in the assumption that all four MCTs are present in MCT oil, and only the longer chain fatty acids from coconut oil are removed. This assumption is false.

MCT oils generally contain only the capra fatty acids. Lauric acid is either missing, or present in minuscule amounts. Therefore, to assume that MCT oil is a fractionation of coconut oil, where the longer chain fatty acids have been removed, leaving all of the MCTs from coconut oil, is false. Lauric acid is the star component in coconut oil, but missing in MCT oil. If MCT oil was the fractionation of all of the MCTs in coconut oil, it would be about 80% lauric acid. But it is not. It is zero percent lauric acid.

This is not surprising if you think about it. Lauric acid is the most valuable component of coconut oil, and as we saw above, the most actively traded MCT fatty acid in the world market.

So what does one do with the remaining capra MCTs after removing the valuable lauric acid? Market it as MCT oil of course!

Is MCT Oil better than Coconut Oil?

No, of course not. How can a product that has the most famous and most dominant fatty acid removed from the original product be considered "better"?

Lauric acid is unique to coconut oil, comprising about 50% of its fatty acids. Coconut oil is nature's richest source of lauric acid. The next highest source is human breast milk, at about 6 to 10%. So if you want lauric acid, coconut oil is the place to get it.

If, however, you want the capra medium chain fatty acids, you have many more alternatives, including goat's milk and other animals' milk.

The capra medium chain fatty acids have their own unique characteristics and benefits. But to refer to them as "better" than coconut oil is short-sighted. They are not better - just different.

Due to the recent rise in popularity of coconut oil, MCT oil has even been marketed as "liquid coconut oil" now. When lauric acid has been removed, the remaining MCTs stay liquid at much lower temperatures.

MCT oil is not true coconut oil, however, since it contains little or no lauric acid. One should not expect the same benefits from cooking with MCT oil (which traditionally has been a supplement or skin care ingredient, and only recently has been marketed as a cooking oil), as with coconut oil.

So while we are not saying that MCT oil is "bad," the hype saying it is "better" than coconut oil just does not reflect the facts. It suggests that people making such statements are falling for marketing claims, without really investigating the true nature of MCT oil.

About the authors: Unlike many people who write about coconut oil by simply reading about it, Brian and Marianita Shilhavy actually lived in a coconut producing area of the Philippines for several years. Marianita Jader Shilhavy grew up on a coconut plantation in the Philippines and in a culture that consumed significant amounts of coconut fat in their diet. She later went on to earn her degree in nutrition and worked as a nutritionist in the Philippines. Brian Shilhavy also lived in the Philippines for several years with Marianita and their 3 children observing firsthand the differences between the diet and health of the younger generation and those of Marianita's parents' generation still consuming a traditional diet. This led to years of studying Philippine nutrition and dietary patterns first hand while living in a rural farming community in the Philippines.

Coincidence

Beautiful story that makes you understand that things happen for a reason.

The brand new pastor and his wife, newly assigned to their first ministry, to reopen a church in suburban Brooklyn, arrived in early October excited about their opportunities.

When they saw their church, it was very run down and needed much work. They set a goal to have everything done in time to have their first service on Christmas Eve.

They worked hard, repairing pews, plastering walls, painting, etc., and on December 18th were ahead of schedule and just about finished.

On December 19th a terrible tempest - a driving rainstorm hit the area and lasted for two days. On the 21st, the pastor went over to the church.

His heart sank when he saw that the roof had leaked, causing a large area of plaster about 20 feet by 8 feet to fall off the front wall of the sanctuary just behind the pulpit, beginning about head high. The pastor cleaned up the mess on the floor, and not knowing what else to do but postpone the Christmas Eve service, headed home.

On the way he noticed that a local business was having a flea market type sale for charity so he stopped in. One of the items was a beautiful, handmade, ivory colored, crocheted tablecloth with exquisite work, fine colors and a Cross embroidered right in the center. It was just the right size to cover up the hole in the front wall. He bought it and headed back to the church.

By this time it had started to snow. An older woman running from the opposite direction was trying to catch the bus. She missed it, so the pastor invited her to wait in the warm church for the next bus 45 minutes later.

She sat in a pew and paid no attention to the pastor while he got a ladder, hangers, etc., to put up the tablecloth as a wall tapestry. The pastor could hardly believe how beautiful it looked and it covered up the entire problem area.

Then he noticed the woman walking down the center aisle. Her face was like a sheet. 'Pastor,' she asked, 'where did you get that tablecloth?'

The pastor explained.

The woman then asked him to check the lower right corner to see if the initials, EBG were crocheted into it there. They were. These were the initials of the woman, and she had made this tablecloth 35 years before, in Austria.

The woman could hardly believe it as the pastor told how he had just gotten the tablecloth. The woman explained that before the war she and her husband were well-to-do people in Austria.

When the Nazis came, she was forced to leave. Her husband was going to follow her the next week. He was captured, sent to prison and she never saw her husband or her home again.

The pastor wanted to give her the tablecloth; but she made the pastor keep it for the church.

The pastor insisted on driving her home that was the least he could do. She lived on the other side of Staten Island and was only in Brooklyn for the day for a housecleaning job.

What a wonderful service they had on Christmas Eve. The church was almost full. The music and the spirit were great. At the end of the service, the pastor and his wife greeted everyone at the door and many said that they would return.

One older man, whom the pastor recognized from the neighborhood continued to sit in one of the pews and stare, and the pastor wondered why he wasn't leaving.

The man asked him where he got the tablecloth on the front wall because it was identical to one that his wife had made years ago when they lived in Austria before the war and how could there be two tablecloths so much alike.

He told the pastor how the Nazis came, how he forced his wife to flee for her safety and he was supposed to follow her, but he was arrested and put in a prison. He never saw his wife or his home again all the 35 years in between.

The pastor asked him if he would allow him to take him for a little ride. They drove to Staten Island and to the same house where the pastor had taken the woman three days earlier.

He helped the man climb the three flights of stairs to the woman's apartment, knocked on the door and he saw the greatest Christmas reunion he could ever imagine.

Who says God does not work in mysterious ways?

I have long since quit believing in circumstance. All things happen for a reason and when we take a closer look, we will generally a higher power that is working all things for our good.

Colds

Colds are a virus. A cold gets in your nose and your sinuses and starts to duplicate there, producing a lot of mucus. Many will experience postnasal drip - mucus dripping down the back of the sinuses into the throat when they go to bed. The mucus contains a virus or bacteria. When it reaches the back of the throat, it causes swelling and inflammation and can even spread into the ears.

Colds and flu usually start in the ear canal. At the first onset of a cold or flu, put 3 drops of silver in one ear and lay on your side for 6-10 minutes, then repeat with the other ear. Ninety percent of sypmtoms will be wiped out by the next morning.

Taking droppers of ShopFreeMart PureSilver 3x daily, and spraying intranasally four or five times daily, will help reduce congestions and inflammation. Using PureSilver as a mouth rinse, eardrops, eye drops, nose drops, and throat spray can also be helpful as well.

ShopFreeMart Siaga has antiviral properties as well as supplying nutrients that support a strong immune system. If you are prone to frequent colds, you should also cleanse the colon using a good probiotic.

Cold Sores / Herpes

When the herpes virus infects the skin, we call it a canker sore or cold sore. If you use Pure Silver within the first four hours of feeling the sore, it will not even erupt. However, if you don't get it in the early phases, viral infection will duplicate and become much more difficult to control. This is why regular, preventative use is so important. (See Viruses)

Colitis / Irritable Bowel Syndrome / Diverticulitis

Colitis is an inflamed colon. Irritated and swollen bowels, and alternating constipation and diarrhea characterize irritable bowel syndrome. Diverticulitis results from overstretched intestines that collect toxins - the toxins that should be passing out of the body start being absorbed and get into the bloodstream.

By taking 2-3 droppers of Pure Silver 3x daily will kill the yeast and bacteria associated with Colitis. You should expect to see some benefits within the first two days.

The single best supplement for healing problems of the gut is colostrum. ShopFreeMart Immunize is a cut above other brands of colostrum due to the fact that 20% of the volume is made up of concentrated proline polypeptides concentrated from the whole colostrum.

Most people today suffer from leaky gut syndrome due to GMO foods, vaccines, drugs, medicines and chemicals and sweeteners found in foods and beverages. This problem is even more prevelent among those suffering from irritable bowel.

Leaky gut is a symptom that results in millions of tiny perforations in the gut lining that allow yeast, bacteria, undigested food and fecal material to pass through the gut lining and enter directly into the blood stream. This condition then leads to all kinds of allergies and autoimmune disorders.

There is nothing else that comes close to fixing problems with the gut like ShopFreeMart Immunize and ShopFreeMart Activate. ShopFreeMart Siaga is also a great companion product to these two products, not only for healing the gut, but for many other related symptoms.

Colon Cleansing

The Key to Excellent Health: Cleansing the Colon ~ Dr. Anderson

It has always been an axiom of natural medicine that the digestive system is the foundation for good or bad health. Nothing has changed since the great natural healer Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, founder of the Battle Creek Sanitarium in Michigan, declared nearly a century ago that "90% of the diseases of civilization are due to improper functioning of the colon."

In 1987, I developed a four-phase, four-week colon cleansing protocol using herbs, electrolytes, probiotics, and nutrients. Since then, an estimated 70,000 people have done the self-care colon cleanse.

The benefits of cleansing are numerous. One user stated: "The main improvements I have noticed are energy levels, vision, hair, skin, mental attitude, and ability to cope with stress situations-generally I'm a much happier and healthier person."

Other benefits typically cited by users are cessation of menstrual pain, migraines, and joint pain, fewer colds, resolution of lifelong sinus congestion, skin problems, and breast cysts, weight loss, and improved concentration, among many others.

Consider the following cases from our patient files:

Lisa, 55, had suffered from a skin rash for 35 years. She had consulted numerous physicians but nothing had reversed this problem. When the intestines are clogged and toxic, and the liver, too, is overburdened, toxins start backing up into the skin for elimination from the body.

By the time Lisa completed the colon cleanse, 95% of her skin symptoms had disappeared. We find Lisa's experience replicated often; cleansing the colon frequently yields softer, more beautiful skin, with long-standing blemishes removed permanently in many cases.

Traces of an earlier illness often remain in the intestines as potential seeds for a recurrence. While cleansing, it is not unusual to "retrace" or re-experience the symptoms of the former illness as these traces are purged from the body.

Lil, 42, who suffered from chronic bronchitis, could not exercise or even walk up stairs without wheezing. While cleansing, she had a ten-day fit of coughing and wheezing, then it abruptly stopped and never returned. By emptying her intestines of old, putrefied matter, Lil had purged her body of the seeds of her recurrent bronchitis.

Margot, 47, had been beset by intense hip pain for seven years, such that she needed a cane to walk. X rays showed that the cartilage was worn off the head of the femur (thigh bone connecting to the hip bone) and the nerves in that area were pinched. Margot had tried numerous alternative therapies but was still relatively crippled.

Margot reported that on the second day of the cleanse, 50% of her pain disappeared and she no longer needed her cane; on the third day, she was able to perform gentle stretching exercises; and over the next several months, Margot's pain continued to diminish leading her to declare: "For the first time in seven years, I'm seeing the reversal of the downward spiral."

What happens in a colon cleanse to produce these benefits?

Merely consider three facts about the intestines. First, if stretched out to their full length, the large and small intestines together would measure 25 feet long. Second, the total surface area in the intestines (made larger by myriad folds) capable of absorbing nutrients is the size of a tennis court.

Third, the intestines can store a vast amount of partially digested, putrefying matter, as well as drugs and other toxic chemicals for decades. Some intestines, when autopsied, have weighed up to 60 pounds and were distended to a diameter of 12 inches with only a pencil-thin channel through which the feces could move.

The size and weight was due to caked layers of encrusted mucus mixed with fecal matter, bizarrely resembling hardened blackish-green truck tire rubber or an old piece of dried rawhide. I call this mucoid plaque. This mucoid plaque, when it is removed during an intensive colon cleanse, often shows ropelike twists, striations, overlaps, folds and creases, the shape and appearance of the intestinal wall.

Mucoid plaque may vary considerably, depending on the chemical conditions in a person's intestines. It may be hard and brittle; it may be firm and thick; tough, wet, and rubbery; soft, thick, and mucoid; or soft, transparent, and thin; it can range in color from light brown, black, or greenish-black to yellow or grey, and sometimes emits an intensely foul odor.

One person during the course of a month-long colon cleanse, passed a single length of mucoid plaque 15 feet long; another client excreted a total of 11 pounds of mucoid plaque during a cleanse. It is not unusual to pass a total of 35 to 45 feet of plaque, often in the last week. In our clinical experience of monitoring thousands of intensive colon cleansing programs over the last 14 years, most people pass a staggering amount of this strange substance.

I coined the term mucoid plaque, meaning a film of mucus, to describe the unhealthy accumulation of abnormal mucous matter on the walls of the intestines. Conventional medicine knows this as a layering of mucin or glycoproteins (made up of 20 amino acids and 50% carbohydrates) which are naturally and appropriately secreted by intestines as protection from acids and toxins.

Mucoid plaque however, is different from the mucosal lining (mucosa) of the gastrointestinal tract. The latter is a necessary buffer to the gastrointestinal wall, and acts as a lubricant for peristalsis. It is also responsible for the secretion of mucins which comprise mucoid plaque. The cells of the outermost layer of the mucosa (the epithelium) stay fresh and vital, renewing themselves every four to seven days.

It sounds paradoxical, but medical research indicates that mucoid plaque is a normal self-defense measure; natural protection from unnatural toxins.

Evidence indicates that mucoid plaque, with the possible exception of that found in the stomach, is unnatural to the healthy body and is found only after the body has moved away from perfect health and into a diseased state. The theory goes that if you were completely healthy, your system would produce no mucoid plaque because it wouldn't need to.

When the body has been chronically subjected to, or put under attack, by drugs (such as aspirin or alcohol), unnatural refined salt, heavy metals (including dental mercury), toxic chemicals, parasites, harmful microbes and their toxins, and circulating immune complexes (immune cells locked onto undigested particles or foreign substances in the bloodstream), it produces mucoid plaque to protect itself.

The trouble is once the mucoid plaque is created, for whatever biologically important reason; it is not routinely excreted from the intestines. Instead it lodges in the numerous folds and crevices of this large organ and can remain there for a lifetime. Over time, the mucoid plaque grows thicker, firmer, and more widespread, colonizing as it were, the tennis court sized interior of the intestines. Old feces adhere to the plaque and are not removed during a normal bowel movement.

The plaque slows down intestinal action, both waste excretion and nutrient absorption. It can harbor pathogens, including bacteria and parasites, which actually hide underneath the plaque; it may block the normal outflow of lymph and mucin drainage. It binds toxins to itself and contributes to bowel toxicity, slowly emitting toxins into the bloodstream.

Finally, plaque creates a friendly environment for disease, in some cases for colon cancer and gastric carcinomas.

Gradually your immune system is weakened as the chronically toxic bowel environment destroys useful bacteria. Your liver becomes overburdened by the unprocessed intestinal toxins, and nerve meridian points in the intestines related to hundreds of other parts of the body are compromised.

A toxic bowel results in toxic blood and lymph, toxic organs and cells, and toxic function. The bowel "feeds" every organ, tissue, and cell in our bodies, so when the quality of feeding from the digestive system is contaminated and of poor quality, the cells and organs elsewhere in the body will be compromised and grow sluggish and inefficient.

So while mucoid plaque is "natural" in that the intestines produce it, it is unnatural in that the presence of a large amount of it indicates a high degree of intestinal ill health and when the intestines are ill, you will be ill.

Here is a concise review of the essential elements you need:

Assess your pH: This is a chemical measurement of your body's acidity or alkalinity and, to a certain degree, your level of toxicity. The most accurate H test comes by testing first morning urine with pH test strips found at a health food store, chemical store or purchased online. When moistened, the paper will change color which correlates to a pH chart that comes with the litmus paper.

Reduce Your Eating: Generally, as you move further into the program you should eat less. This enables your body to focus on clearing out the toxins and old fecal matter without the distraction and energy output of digesting new foods. Each successive stage in the program involves stricter dietary controls and a higher intake of supplements and fresh juices with a correspondingly deeper cleansing.

Herbal Laxative: You need a formula to soften and break up toxic waste material while detoxifying cells. An herbal combination that works well for this (when mixed in the proper way) includes plantain, cascara sagrada, barberry, peppermint, sheep sorrel, fennel seed, ginger root, myrrh gum, red raspberry, rhubarb root, goldenseal, and lobelia. This herbal formula prepares the mucoid plaque for removal and neutralizes stored intestinal toxins such as pesticides, drugs, and heavy metals. It also helps cleanse the liver and other body tissues.

Herbal Nutrition: At the same time, you need to bolster your system's ability to detoxify.

An effective herbal formula for cleansing and which is highly nutritive includes alfalfa, dandelion, shavegrass, chickweed, marshmallow root, yellowdock, rosehips, hawthorn, licorice root, Irish moss, kelp, and two digestive enzymes, amylase (digests carbohydrates) and cellulase (digests plant fiber).

Bentonite: Liquid clay derived from volcanic ash, bentonite taken orally is highly effective in absorbing toxins from the intestines and removing them from the body.

Psyllium Husk Powder: This fibrous bulking agent forms a gel when mixed with water. While the herbal laxative and nutritional formulas loosen the mucoid plaque, and bentonite pulls out and absorbs toxic debris, psyllium helps push the toxins and waste materials out of your body.

Probiotics: Your intestines need certain "friendly" bacteria or probiotics to perform all of their functions, including the suppression and elimination of pathogenic microorganisms. Probiotics can also help restore alkalinity to an acidified intestinal tract thereby assuring that electrolytes will not be lost because of intestines overrun with acidic bacteria. A particularly helpful probiotic is Bifidobacterium infantis.

Electrolytes: Your body depends on the essential alkaline minerals potassium, sodium, calcium, and magnesium to remove toxic acids, maintain fluid balance in cells and the bloodstream, and control pH, hormone secretion, nerve conduction, and other functions. An effective way to deliver alkalinizing electrolytes is taking dehydrated juice of beets, celery, and carrots, combined with goat milk whey concentrate, fig powder, and lecithin.

Antioxidants: As the intestines begin to purge themselves of old matter and mucoid plaque, large amounts of toxins and free radicals are released. It is prudent to take an antioxidant formula while doing the colon cleanse to help your system clean up these released toxins.

Several of the ShopFreeMart products are powerful antioxidants including Siaga, PureCopper, D-Cal and Vitalize.

Dietary Changes: First, I generally encourage people to not eat meat in order to reduce acid-forming dietary input. Second, I suggest reducing grains, potatoes, yams, and sweet potatoes for 30 days after completing the colon cleanse. Third, I recommend a raw foods diet maintained whenever possible; ideally based on home-grown organic fruits and vegetables. A raw foods diet is rich in digestive enzymes and encourages the body to continue detoxifying.

Is there a connection between old emotions and colon cleansing?

Yes. You will find that in many cases, colon cleansing will purge old emotions and attitudes stored in the intestines.

Consider this case: Jessie, 20, was a vegan yet was bothered by digestive problems and candidiasis. Candidiasis, or the overgrowth of Candida albicansin the intestines is a condition often reversed by an intense colon cleanse. During the first two weeks of cleansing, Jessie began feeling better, but the turnaround came in week three. Jessie passed what looked like three white cotton balls (presumably Candida masses lodged in her colon), and thereafter had no more candidiasis symptoms.

In addition to her physical improvements, Jessie had an emotional benefit as well. She felt an increase in will power, clarity in her feelings, a new desire to be of service to others, and a release of long-held resentments.

These points highlight an important aspect of colon cleansing. Many people upon completion, feel energized, uplifted, and freed from old patterns, thoughts, feelings, and memories that have held them back. When a person is on a course of personal growth and wants to change their consciousness, but is stuck in old negative patterns of thinking and feeling, there is nothing that will get them unstuck and change them faster than a colon cleanse.

In my observation of many individuals doing the colon cleanse, a negative state of consciousness is often at the root of whatever physical problem they suffer from. Every thought or feeling we have has the potential of moving from the mind into the physical structure of the body where it can provoke illness. I estimate that about 70% of those doing the intensive colon cleanse will experience long-forgotten memories and buried emotions.

Often the memories and emotions surface into awareness with all their original charge and soon afterwards you pass a large section of mucoid plaque. As it passes out of your body, so go the emotions. In most cases, you won't re-experience those particular emotional memories.

Here is what I think happens. It is as though you can magnetize proteins or undigested food left in the intestines with certain thoughts and feelings, like the hard drive of your computer. These proteins hold onto the feelings for as long as the proteins remain in the intestines, and the old emotions and thoughts continually radiate through the body and mind.

They remain, quite literally and tangibly, stuck in your body; somehow bound up with the mucoid plaque and contributing negatively to the personality and to the physical condition of the body. Both the individual's biochemistry and psyche are continuously negatively affected by these residues of emotionally magnetized matter.

Let's say you were 12 and had a traumatic or deeply embarrassing experience. At some level, every cell in your body was affected by the emotions of that event. It is conceivable that some intestinal matter imprinted by that experience remains in your intestines, wrapped inside mucoid plaque and bearing the memory of the original pain, even though you are now 48 and barely remember the episode.

The personality and one's operating belief system are controlled mainly by a massive accumulation of past thoughts and feelings. To a large extent, intestinal matter helps hold these feelings in place. The colon cleanse, by purging the intestines of the mucoid plaque, flushes out this accumulation of old negative thoughts and feelings.

Congestion

Congestion - including nasal, lung, and upper respiratory  can stop you from breathing properly. Congestion leads to high production of mucus and can clog the nose, throat, sinuses, and lungs. If bacteria cause the congestion, it can last for months if the bacteria are not destroyed.

To remove congestion, spray Pure Silver into your nose 1-4 times daily and drink two teaspoons of the liquid twice daily. Inhaling silver 30 minutes daily will help lung congestion.

Congestions can create a poor sleep pattern and lead to decreased immune function. A hot, steamy shower will help you clean out your sinuses; once the sinuses are clean, spray Pure Silver high into the nostrils. Rinse your mouth with Pure Silver as well, swallowing the solution when finished.

ShopFreeMart Siaga can help relieve inlammation and congestion throughout the body, plus it helps to strengthen the immune system.

ShopFreeMart Immunize taken daily will help maintain a healthy gut and immune system, providing ongoing support agains congestion.

Constipation

Constipation and Migraine headache or pain going down the neck can often be relieved by deep massage on the same side as the pain, about 4 inches above the ankle, right below the calf on the inside of the leg. When you find the right spot there will pain like a boil. Massage deeply for 9 minutes even though the patient will want to go through the roof. When the pain is gone in the leg, the headache will be gone also.

I performed this massage on my wife who was severely constipated. She wanted to kill me before it was done and a few minutes later, she filled the toilet bowl above the water line. She then thanked me for putting her in pain as the relief was more than the few minutes of agony she endured.

You may also find extremely sore points on the ankles, sides or bottom of the feet. These all relate to some blocked nerves in the body and even if you don't have reflexology charts, by massaging these points, you will do your body a world of good.

Edgar Cayce says migraines are caused by toxic bowel. Many people have totally eliminated migraines and constipation by cleansing the bowel. See Colon Cleansing and Bentonite Clay.

A healthy bowel should move once for each meal that is consumed.

To understand constipation, it helps to know how the colon, or large intestine, works. As food moves through the colon, the colon absorbs water from the food while it forms waste products, or stool. Muscle contractions in the colon then push the stool toward the rectum. By the time stool reaches the rectum it is solid, because most of the water has been absorbed.

Constipation occurs when the colon absorbs too much water or if the colon's muscle contractions are slow or sluggish, causing the stool to move through the colon too slowly. As a result, stools can become hard and dry. Common causes of constipation are:

Lack of magnesium - ShopFreeMart PureMag is the best form of magnesium.

Not enough fiber in the diet

Dehydration - not enough liquids

Lack of physical activity (especially in the elderly)

Medications

Milk and dairy products

Changes in life or routine such as pregnancy, aging, and travel

Abuse of laxatives

Ignoring the urge to have a bowel movement

Not enough salt in the diet

Specific diseases or conditions, such as stroke (most common)

Problems with the colon and rectum

Problems with intestinal function (chronic idiopathic constipation)

Irritable bowel syndrome

Yeast and Bacteria

Not Enough Fiber in the Diet:

People who eat a high-fiber diet are less likely to become constipated. The most common causes of constipation are a diet low in fiber or a diet high in fats, such as cheese, eggs, and meats.

Fiber - both soluble and insoluble is the part of fruits, vegetables, and grains that the body cannot digest. Soluble fiber dissolves easily in water and takes on a soft, gel-like texture in the intestines. Insoluble fiber passes through the intestines almost unchanged. The bulk and soft texture of fiber help prevent hard, dry stools that are difficult to pass.

Americans eat an average of 5 to 14 grams of fiber daily, which is short of the 20 to 35 grams recommended by the American Dietetic Association. Most people today eat too many refined and processed foods from which the natural fiber has been removed.

For sake of convenience people often choose foods that are quick to make or buy, such as fast foods, or prepared foods, both of which are usually low in fiber. High fiber foods are more difficult to chew causing many older people to eat soft foods that are processed and low in fiber.

Dehydration - Not Enough Liquids:

Many people report some relief from their constipation if they drink less soda drinks and drink more water and juices to help avoid dehydration. Liquids add fluid to the colon and bulk to stools, making bowel movements softer and easier to pass. People who have problems with constipation should drink no less that 8-12 glasses of pure water every day.

It is almost impossible today to find water that hydrates the cells by more than 2% - 3%. That is why we created our ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops Concentrate. By adding just 6 drops of Hydration Drops Concentrate to 1 gallon of purified water, your cells will hydrate faster and more completely than any other water we have tested.

Drinks that contain caffeine, such as coffee and cola drinks will worsen one's symptoms by causing dehydration. Alcohol is another beverage that causes dehydration. It is important to drink fluids that hydrate the body, especially when consuming caffeine containing drinks or alcoholic beverages.

Studies show that in order to fully neutralize the effects of one glass of soda, you need to drink 32 glasses of water.

Lack of Physical Activity:

A lack of physical activity can lead to constipation. For example, constipation often occurs after an accident or during an illness when one must stay in bed and cannot exercise. Lack of physical activity is thought to be one of the reasons constipation is common in older people.

Medications: Many medications can cause constipation.

Pain medications (especially narcotics)

Antacids that contain aluminum and calcium

Blood pressure medications (calcium channel blockers)

Anti-Parkinson drugs

Antispasmodics

Antidepressants

Iron supplements - most iron supplements cause hemochromatosis.

Diuretics

Anticonvulsants

Eating dried prunes is one of the best "natural" remedies for constipation. As my children were growing up, we kept a bag of prunes in the cupboard to remedy this problem any time it might arise, as prunes are safe for even babies.

Good diet and regularly using ShopFreeMart PureMag and Immunize can help most people eliminate constipation and the need for laxatives. (See Diet)

Changes in Life or Routine:

During pregnancy, women may be constipated because of hormonal changes or because the uterus compresses the intestine. Aging may also affect bowel regularity, because a slower metabolism results in less intestinal activity and muscle tone. In addition, people often become constipated when traveling, because their normal diet and daily routine are disrupted.

Abuse of Laxatives:

Although people may feel relief when they use laxatives, typically they must increase the dose over time because the body grows dependent upon laxatives in order to have a bowel movement. As a result, laxatives may become habit-forming.

Ignoring the Urge to Have a Bowel Movement:

People who ignore the urge to have a bowel movement may eventually stop feeling the need to have one, which can lead to constipation. Some people delay having a bowel movement because they do not want to use toilets outside the home. Others ignore the urge because of emotional stress or because they are too busy. Children may postpone having a bowel movement because of stressful toilet training or because they do not want to interrupt their play.

Not enough salt in the diet:

Contrary to popular opinion, salt is necessary to health. Salt is Sodium Chloride and sodium is the water-regulating mineral. Because the human body is 70% or more water, it needs considerable sodium to help regulate all of the bodily fluids. One quick fix for constipation is to drink a rounded tsp. of salt in warm water first thing in the morning every day until you are back to having normal bowel movements. Don't use regular table salt however. (See Salt)

Specific Diseases:

Diseases that cause constipation include neurological disorders, metabolic and endocrine disorders, and systemic conditions that affect organ systems. The following disorders can slow the movement of stool through the colon, rectum, or anus.

Neurological disorders

Multiple sclerosis

Parkinson's disease

Chronic idiopathic intestinal pseudo-obstruction

Stroke

Spinal cord injuries

Diabetes

Uremia

Hypocalcaemia

Hypothyroidism

Amyloidosis

Lupus

Scleroderma

Problems with the colon and rectum:

Intestinal obstruction, adhesions (scar tissue), diverticulitis, tumors, colorectal stricture, or cancer can compress, squeeze, or narrow the intestine and rectum and cause constipation.

Problems with Intestinal Function: The three types of constipation are idiopathic constipation, functional constipation and irritable bowel syndrome.

Idiopathic has an unknown origin and does not respond to standard treatment.

Functional constipation means that the bowel is healthy but not working properly. It is often the result of poor dietary habits and lifestyle. It occurs in both children and adults and is most common in women. Colonic inertia, delayed transit, and pelvic floor dysfunction are three types of functional constipation. Colonic inertia and delayed transit are caused by a decrease in muscle activity in the colon. These syndromes may affect the entire colon or may be confined to the lower, or sigmoid, colon.

Pelvic floor dysfunction is caused by a weakness of the muscles in the pelvis surrounding the anus and rectum. However, because this group of muscles is voluntarily controlled to some extent, biofeedback training is somewhat successful in retraining the muscles to function normally and improving the ability to have a bowel movement.

Functional constipation that stems from problems in the structure of the anus and rectum is known as anorectal dysfunction, or anismus. These abnormalities result in an inability to relax the rectal and anal muscles that allow stool to exit.

People with IBS having predominantly constipation also have pain and bloating as part of their symptoms.

The doctor may ask a patient to describe his or her constipation, including duration of symptoms, frequency of bowel movements, and consistency of stools, presence of blood in the stool, toilet habits and how often and where one has bowel movements. A record of eating habits, medication, and level of physical activity will also help the doctor determine the cause of constipation.

The clinical definition of constipation is having any two of the following symptoms for at least 12 weeks in the previous 12 months:

Straining during bowel movements

Lumpy or hard stool

Sensation of incomplete evacuation

Sensation of anorectal blockage/obstruction

Fewer than three bowel movements per week

Missing just one day without having a bowel movement however, is constipation. It is just a lesser degree than someone who may go three days or even a week without having one.

Yeast and Bacteria:

Crohn's disease is an inflamed irritable bowel syndrome. One of the main symptoms is constipation. Bacteria, a virus, a parasite, or all three may cause it. Silver is very good at destroying pathogens without further inflaming the bowel.

Underactive thyroid is another cause of constipation. Even though blood tests may indicate that the thyroid is normal, eighty percent of Americans suffer from an underactive thyroid.

Pure Silver can help because often the thyroid is damaged by a viral or bacterial infection. Drinking two teaspoons twice daily and applying Pure Silver topically to the throat will result in significant thyroid benefit.

ShopFreeMart PureCopper and PureMag may also help turn on the thyroid gland nutritionally, which could then in turn relieve the symptoms of constipation.

Milk and dairy products:

Milk and dairy products and especially cheese are very constipating. Furthermore, everyone is allergic to them to one degree or another and if you suffer from constipation, they should be avoided altogether.

Bowels can have a lot of problems - from constipation and colitis to yeast and other infections and diarrhea. By taking two teaspoons twice daily, Pure Silver can help destroy the bacteria and yeast that cause many of these problems.

By taking 2-3 droppers of Pure Silver 3x daily will kill the yeast and bacteria associated with Crohn's. You should expect to see some benefits within the first two days.You should expect to see benefits within the first two days.

ShopFreeMart Immunize, PureMag and Siaga may also help support a healthy intestinal tract, and normal and regular bowel movements.

COPD

Special breathing exercises have completely eradicated black lung and COPD in some people. See Breathing Exercises

ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops and Siaga are two of my favorite products for supporting breathing and respiratory functions. Together, they may significantly increase Oxygen levels in the body and help make breathing easier.

The major causes of COPD are cigarette smoking and breathing toxic vapors from paints, carpets, cleaning products, insecticides, herbicides and other industrial chemicals. See Smoking and See Cleaning Products.

Supplements that may help to support and strenthen the lungs are ShopFreeMart PureMag, PureCopper and D-Cal. ShopFreeMart Vitalize also helps to rebuild cells and tissues throughout the entire body.

Coronavirus

Fear of the virus has literally locked down the entire world and learning the truth about viruses can help reduce the fear that we are all going to die if we don't stay at home. The opposite is actually the truth.

One good thing that is coming out of the coronavirus pandemic is the truth about viruses in general. As early as 1917, it was published that viruses are an excretion of cells that have been poisoned chemically or electrically as opposed to something we catch.

Note: The following video by Dr. Cowan was banned from Youtube.



Unfortunately, doctors and hospitals are being paid to diagnose people having the virus, whether they do or not. We have all been told that if you want to know the truth about something, follow the money trail. In the following film, Dr. Scott Jensen tell how that works.



Effective Home Remedy for Coronavirus

steam bath

The following home remedy has successfully been used for centuries for fevers, coughs, colds and influenza. Although coronavirus can survive for weeks at near freezing temperatures, laboratory studies have now shown that Coronavirus quickly dies when temperatures reach 56º C or 133º F.

The Coronavirus thrives in cooler temperatures and that is why it attacks the nose, sinus cavity and lungs. These areas are generally moist and air passing through them causes water to evaporate, which causes them to remain cooler than the rest of the body.

HOW TO DO THIS
1.    Drink a large glass of warm water.
2.    Then boil approximately 1 liter or 1 quart of water.
3.    Add 3 Tbs. of salt.
4.    Get under a blanket as shown in the picture.
5.    Put the pan of hot water in front of you.
6.    Breathe in the hot vapor.
7.    Try to remain there as long as the water is hot.
8.    Ideally, you should become soaked with sweat.
9.    Have a towel and dry clothes laid out.
10.    Dry with the towel and put on dry clothes.
11.    Stay warm and do not get chilled.
12.   Your fever will break when the virus is under control. If not, repeat up to two more times to finish killing the virus.
13.   Wait for 24 hours before bathing or taking a shower.

Using a Nebulizer to Clear Lungs

Every home should have a nebulizer. When purchasing, buy a reliable brand. If purchasing online, read customer reviews. 

I personally use a combination of Living Minerals, PureSilver and PureDine in my nebulizer. 

First I put 1-2 oz. of pure water into a glass. I then dip a toothpick into a bottle of Mineralizer or from an opened capsule of Living Minerals and add a sprinkle of black minerals to the water. The water should turn dark brown to nearly black. Then I pour the mixture into an empty 2 oz. dropper bottle. 

Then I open the medicine bowl of the nebulizer and add two droppers full (one squeeze of the bulb) of Living Minerals, one dropper full of PureSilver and 2-3 drops (drops / not droppers) of PureDine. I swirl this around for a few seconds then put the top securely on the bowl, attach the hose and begin sucking vapor into my lungs through my mouth and nose. Take long deep breaths so as to expand the lungs and get the vapor thoroughly distributed to all parts of the lungs.  I like to have two or more people passing the bowl so that while one person is inhaling, the other persons are exhaling and none of the vapor goes to waste. When doing this, I don't use the mouthpiece. You don't need to touch the unit with nose or mouth. The vacuum caused by inhaling will easily draw in the vapor without touching.

Silver, Iodine and Fulvic Minerals are all highly anti-microbial and should quickly neutralize all forms of bacteria, virus, mold, etc., which will naturally reduce inflammation and allow the lungs to raise mucous more readily.

Like the previous strain, the new coronavirus is a respiratory virus which spreads primarily through contact with an infected person through respiratory droplets generated by an infected person through saliva, discharge from the nose or coughing or sneezing. It is important that everyone practice good respiratory hygiene. For example, sneeze or cough into a flexed elbow, or use a tissue and discard it immediately into a closed bin.  It is also very important for people to wash their hands regularly with either alcohol-based hand rub or colloidal silver solution. Alcohol sanitizers, although effective, only last as long as the alcohol is wet. It provides no protection after it is dry, whereas silver does.

Prevention is always better than cure!

Perhaps 60% of the people who come into contact with the coronavirus are not infected, or at least do not experience the symptoms and that is obviously because their immune systems are strong enough to nip the virus in the bud. ShopFreeMart has a number of products that may help strengthen the human immune system, which may help the body to better fight against viruses, including the coronavirus.

ShopFreeMart Pure Silver Concentrate

Silver has a long history of being Nature’s Antibiotic. Unlike patent drugs, viruses and other disease causing microbes cannot develop an immunity to it. Silver is known to kill viruses, bacteria, yeast, mold and fungus of all kinds. However, not all silver products are created equally and ShopFreeMart PureSilver is superior by far to other silver products I have compared it to and therefore I consider it to be in a class by itself! 

Silver is a naturally occurring trace element. When silver is a constituent of farm soil, it is also found in foods grown on that soil. Silver is found in trace amounts in water. It is found in cow's milk, goats milk and human breast milk, so babies that are breast fed receive some silver in their diet if it is found in the mother. 

Of all the plants and foods however, medicinal and edible mushrooms contain the highest quantities of silver and in that regard we realize that silver is not foreign or toxic to our bodies as long as it is not consumed in a toxic form like silver nitrate. 

There are many benefits to silver, the main one being its ability to kill all known pathogens. 

What Will Save Us from the Plagues of the 21st Century? by the editors of the Journal of Preventative and Alternative Medicine

So, the question is, will silver kill the new Chinese coronavirus? Since it is relatively new, we have no actual data for the new virus, but let’s look at the effect it has on other coronaviruses. 

Herbert Slavin, M.D., founder and director of the Institute of Advanced Medicine, Lauderhill, Florida said:

"…A study at the University of Arizona recently showed ionic silver to be effective against the coronavirus that researchers used as the surrogate for SARS."

SARS stands for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. The coronavirus behind SARS produces the same kind of potentially deadly respiratory syndrome as caused by the new Chinese coronavirus.

 According to a Business Wire article about the study: "The study tested various ionic silver and copper levels to determine if they were effective against the human coronavirus strain 229E, a strain commonly used as a surrogate for the SARS virus in laboratory research.

The research demonstrated 90% reductions of the virus within 1 hour and after 24 hours virus levels had reduced to the point of being undetectable. So, in this study, the researchers saw a 90% reduction in coronavirus levels within the first hour, and a 99.99% reduction within 24 hours.

"This research demonstrates that ionic silver has the potential to deactivate viruses in a relatively short period of time."

Alternative Medicine Article by Jeff Trogolo, Ph.D., chief technology officer, AgION Technologies, Inc.

Nebulizing with Silver

In October 2001, the prestigious Health Sciences Institute pointed out that nebulizing colloidal silver directly into the lungs is one of the fastest ways of effectively eliminating serious upper respiratory infections such as bronchitis or pneumonia.

One of their well-known health symposium panelists, Dr. Victor A. Marcial-Vega, M.D., while dealing with pneumonia patients, discovered that colloidal silver can be quickly and easily atomized into a fine mist and inhaled into the lungs using a device called a nebulizer. The silver is then easily carried into the human bloodstream and from there directly into the body’s cells and tissues.The apparent result was rapid and highly effective remission of pneumonia symptoms, as the tiny silver particles in the colloidal silver killed the infectious agents causing the pneumonia.

Animal Study - Miraculous Protection Against Pneumonia

What’s more, a clinical study on animals was conducted several years ago in which – much to the surprise of the researchers – inhalation of silver nanoparticles provided miraculous protection against pneumonia infection.

In fact, in the above-linked article on this study, titled “Inhalation of Silver Nanoparticles Results in ‘Miraculous’ Protection Against Pneumonia,” it was reported that mice purposely infected with pneumonia pathogens easily survived the infection when they were allowed to inhale silver nanoparticles once per day, whereas mice with the same infection but which were not allowed to inhale silver nanoparticles all died.

While this is one of the very few clinical studies to date conducted on inhaling aerosolized colloidal silver, it does seem to offer profound hope that a safe, natural way has been discovered to help staunch the devastating effects of serious upper respiratory and lung infections, such as viral and bacterial pneumonia.

If I were to contract coronavirus, I would mix approximately 1/2 dropper full (one squeeze of the bulb) of ShopFreeMart PureSilver with 1/2 dropper full of ShopFreeMart Living Mineras mixed in water. (I use the end of a toothpick to dip one scoop of Living Minerals, which I add to about 2 oz. of purified water) and inhale the vapor into my lungs several times daily. From my experience, taking PureSilver is completely safe and there should be no fear of side effects or complications of any kind.  In addition to nebulizing, PureSilver could also be administered intravenously by a doctor for even faster results.

ShopFreeMart Siaga - Immune Support

ShopFreeMart Siaga is an extract of three of the most powerful herbs for strengthening the immune system. These herbs are Chaga Mushroom, Black Cumin Seed and Licorice Root.

Chaga contains a combination of Amino Acids, Beta-glucans, Betulinic Acid, Calcium, Chloride, Copper, Dietary Fiber, Enzymes, Flavonoids, Germanium, Inotodiols, Iron, Lanosterol, Manganese, Magnesium, Melanin, Pantothenic Acid, Phenols, Phosphorus, Phytonutrients, Polysaccharides, Potassium, Saponins, Selenium, Sodium, Sterols, Trametenolic Acid, Tripeptides, Triterpenes, Triterpenoids, Vanillic Acid, Vitamin B1 (Thiamine), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Vitamin D2 (Ergosterol), Vitamin K and Zinc, most of which are associated with a healthy immune system.

Licorice appears to enhance immunity by boosting levels of interferon, a key immune system chemical that fights off attacking viruses. It also contains powerful antioxidants which are important to immune support. Glycyrrhizinic acid found in Licorice also seems to stop the growth of many bacteria and viruses, including influenza. Coronavirus attacks the lungs and Licorice eases congestion and coughing by helping to loosen and thin mucus in airways; this makes a cough more “productive,” bringing up phlegm and other mucus bits. Licorice also helps to relax bronchial spasms. This herb also soothes soreness in the throat and fights viruses that cause respiratory illnesses that cause an overproduction of mucus, irritating coughs, asthma and chest infections.

Black seed (Nigella sativa) is considered to be one of the greatest healing herbs of all times. This herb has been used for millennia to strengthen the immune system, cleanse the body, purify the blood, protect against irritants and support healthy longevity. Historically, Black Seed has been used to make medicines for over 2000 years. It was found in the tomb of King Tut, the prophet Isaiah wrote about it in the Bible and the prophet Muhammad claimed that it “cures everything but death.”

ShopFreeMart Living Mineral product is rich in bioactive carbon that comes from humic and fulvic acids.

The body is pretty much made up of water and carbon. Carbon provides building blocks for all of our cells and comprises approximately 96% of molecules in the body. Mycotoxins are a protective covering to bacteria, mold, parasites, fungi, yeasts, and viruses that inhibit the effect of the human immune system as well as antibiotics. Bioactive carbon found in Living Minerals binds to mycotoxins heavy metals, environmental toxins and removes them from the body. It also kills parasites, which create a breeding ground for viruses.

ShopFreeMart Immunize

ShopFreeMart Immunize is Pure Bovine Colostrum containing over 700 nutrients, including immunoglobulins, growth factors, lipidic and glucidic factors, cytokines, oligosaccharides, antimicrobials and nucleosides. The primary function of colostrum is to introduce into a newborn human or mammal compounds that quickly build the newborn’s immune system. Bovine colostrum is bioidentical to human colostrum, but is many times stronger. More studies have been done on colostrum than any other health product or supplement and there is mounting evidence that pure colostrum is the best supplement for maintaining integrity of the gut and a healthy immune system in humans, both old and young alike. In addition to immune boosting factors, colostrum supplies eighty-seven (87) growth factors, promoting DNA synthesis, fat utilization, normal cell growth and increased mental acuity.

Colostrum has over 100 times more immunoglobulins than regular milk. Colostrum is also rich in transfer factors that educate and modulate the immune system, causing it to recognize specific antigens. These transfer factors also help the immune system to recognize the difference between normal tissue and pathological microbes. These transfer factors include immunoglobin G (IgG).

The transfer factors from colostrum are able to boost natural killer cell (NK) activity and calm a hyperactive immune system through activating suppressor T cells. This improves the intelligence of the immune system and allows it to function with greater efficiency. These transfer factors also act as a catalytic memory agent for the immune system to alert naive immune cells of an impending danger.

Colostrum-based IgG molecules can be a lifesaver to someone who is suffering from acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). These individuals are not able to effectively produce sufficient IgG on their own to combat pathogenic microbes like Cryptosporidium parvum. According to the Health Science Institute’s Underground Cures, “colostrum is able to ameliorate or completely eliminate the clinical symptoms of those suffering from cryptosporidiosis.”

Some scientists say that a healthy immune system could prevent virtually every known disease, thus the importance of including a quality colostrum product in your daily supplement regimen.

Shopfreemart PureDine

Of all the elements essential for human health, iodine is the least understood and the most feared. Yet, iodine is the safest of all the essential trace elements. It is the only one that can be administered safely in high doses for long periods of time, as long as one understands how to adapt the dosage to his or her needs. Every individual is unique and will therefore require different amounts.

Oral iodine might also boost body defense mechanisms in the upper oral and respiratory mucus. Iodine is also known to be effective in killing the influenza virus.

Over the years, influenza viruses were isolated and various agents were experimentally used for killing them. It was discovered that Iodine was one the most effective agent for killing viruses. Preventative measures for dealing with influenza infection are isolation, hand washing, antiviral drugs, and vaccinations. All of these methods can be improved by incorporating iodine into them. When impregnated with iodine, masks become much more effective, and hand washing is more effective when using a liquid soap that has iodine added to it.

Could iodine be a silver bullet against disease that has been purposely obscured to enrich the so-called health care industry?

At one time, iodine was the remedy of choice in every hospital, every doctor’s office and every home medicine cabinet. Today, the only place that iodine is frequently used to treat disease is in veterinary clinics. Why do you suppose that is? Because animals have to be cured quickly and inexpensively, otherwise a pound of hamburger would cost you $60.

According to Lynne Farrow, author of The Iodine Crisis, iodine was the first treatment of choice for tumors and aggressive diseases of obscure origin during the 19th century. Farrow also says that the notion that refined iodized salt meets our daily needs for iodine is a dangerous misconception.

According to the research of both Iodine experts, Farrow and Brownstein, the amount of iodine in salt far too low and less that 10% of it gets absorbed by the body and many people today avoid refined salts due to their doctors saying it is bad for cardiovascular health.

ShopFreeMart PureDine is the purest and most concentrated Iodine supplement we have found that is safe to use both orally and topically. However, for anyone with symptoms of an overactive thyroid, it would be wise to be monitored by your doctor and to start with a very small dosage.

ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops

Drinking the right kind of water is one of your best natural protections against all kinds of diseases. If the body’s cells become dehydrated, they shrivel up, making it easy for viruses and diseases to attack, often leading to disease and an untimely and premature death.

Hundreds of testimonials attest to the fact that ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops quickly improve the body’s ability to absorb water molecules into the cells and thus improve overall hydration of the body.

Water is a vital component of all bodily fluids, tissues, cells, lymph, blood and hormones, and the mucous membranes need plenty of water to keep them soft and free from friction on their delicate surfaces, but if water can’t get into the cells and just remains outside the cells, then all of your cells suffer as a result and become more prone to viruses and other disease causing microbes.

Water also acts as a transportation medium for nutrients to the various parts of the body and one of the most important functions of water is to flush toxins from the body.

Benefits of Hydration

-Reduction in Free Radicals
-Reduction in acids and toxins which cause pain
-Increased oxygen levels
-Reduction in bacteria, viruses, yeast, mold, parasites
-Improved blood viscosity, which can naturally reduce high blood pressure
-Reduces sticky blood (Roulette Effect)
-Improved nutrient absorption
-Regulates body temperature
-Better pH balance at the cellular level
-Reduces constipation, improves bowel function
-Slows premature aging
-Improves memory and brain function
-May also reduce the need for visits to doctor and dependence upon medications

SHOPFREEMART NVIRO SOAP

Nviro Soap is antibacterial and antiviral. Most antibacterial soaps, although they kill bacteria when washing your hands, actually open the protective dermous layer of your skin, leaving it more vulnerable to disease causing microbes. Nviro Soap not only kills disease causing microbes rather quickly, but it also leaves your skin soft with a protective coating that helps protect against these dangerous microbes even after your skin is dry.

Coughs

How to stop cough in 5 minutes:

I have used this method and it does seem to help. No side effects were found, but it does not get at the root of the problem.

ANYTHING is better than antibiotics. Even babies can benefit from this and the parents don't have to worry about the safety of their child.

Even persistent, heavy, deep coughing will stop in about five minutes and stay stopped for hours of relief. This is more effective in children than strong prescription cough medicines. In addition it is extremely soothing and comforting and they will sleep more soundly.

Treatment:

Put Vicks Vapor Rub generously on the bottom of the feet at bedtime and then cover with socks.

Colds are a virus. A cold gets in your nose and your sinuses and starts to duplicate there, producing a lot of mucus. Many will experience postnasal drip - mucus dripping down the back of the sinuses into the throat when they go to bed. The mucus contains a virus or bacteria. When it reaches the back of the throat, it causes swelling and inflammation and can even spread into the ears.

Putting 3 or more drops of PureSilver into one ear and lying on your side with that ear up for 6-12 minutes and then repeating on the other ear will often stop a threatening cold, flu or sinus infection in its tracks.

Taking 2-3 droppers of Pure Silver 3x daily and spraying intranasally four or five times daily, will help reduce congestions and inflammation. Using PureSilver as a mouth rinse, eardrops, eye drops, nose drops, and throat spray can also be helpful as well.

ShopFreeMart Siaga has antiviral properties as well as supplying nutrients that support a strong immune system. ShopFreeMart Immunize also is one of the best products you can use to maintain a strong immune system.

Crohn's Disease

Crohn's disease is an inflamed irritable bowel syndrome. The main symptoms are abdominal pain, diarrhea (which may be bloody, although this may not be visible to the naked eye), constipation, vomiting, weight loss, or weight gain.

Although it is an infection, it is not clear if bacteria, a virus, a parasite, or all three cause it.
Silver can destroy all three potential causes of the symptoms.

By taking 2-3 droppers of Pure Silver 3x daily will kill the yeast and bacteria associated with Crohn's. You should expect to see some benefits within the first two days.

Also, the single best supplement for healing problems of the gut is colostrum. ShopFreeMart Immunize is a cut above other brands of colostrum due to the fact that 20% of the volume is made up of proline polypeptides concentrated from the whole colostrum.

Most people today suffer from leaky gut syndrome due to GMO foods, vaccines, drugs, medicines and chemicals and sweeteners found in foods and beverages. This problem is even more prevelent among those suffering from irritable bowel.

Leaky gut is a symptom that results in millions of tiny perforations in the gut lining that allow yeast, bacteria, undigested food and fecal material to pass through the gut lining and enter directly into the blood stream. This condition then leads to all kinds of allergies and autoimmune disorders.

There is nothing else that comes close to fixing problems with the gut like ShopFreeMart Immunize and ShopFreeMart Actvate. ShopFreeMart Siaga is also a great companion to these two products, not only for healing the gut, but for many other related symptoms.

Crohn's disease is considered to be an autoimmune disease in which the body attacks itself. If that is the case then look to ShopFreeMart Immunize as the best natural remedy.

ShopFreeMart PureMag, PureCopper and D-Cal are also noted for helping relieve some of the symptoms of crohn's disease.

Customer Service - True Story ~ Barbara Glanz

A few years ago, I was hired by a large supermarket chain to lead a customer service program to build customer loyalty.

During my speech I said, "Every one of you can make a difference and create memories for your customers that will motivate them to come back. Put your personal signature on the job. Think about something you can do for your customer to make them feel special; memories that will make them come back."

About a month after I had spoken, I received a call from a nineteen-year-old bagger named Johnny. He proudly informed me he was a Down Syndrome individual and told me his story.

"I liked what you talked about!" he said, "but at first I didn't think I could do anything special for our customers. After all, I'm just a bagger."

"Then I had an idea!" Johnny said. "Every night after work, I'd come home and find a thought for the day. If I can't find a saying I like, I just think one up" he added.

When Johnny had a good Thought for the Day, his dad helped him set it up on the computer and print multiple copies. Johnny cut out each quote and signed his name on the back. Then he'd bring them to work the next day.

"When I finish bagging someone's groceries, I put my thought for the day in their bag and say 'Thanks for shopping with us.'"

It touched me to think that this young man with a job most people would say is not important had made it important by creating precious memories for all of his customers.

A month later the store manager called me. "You won't believe what happened. When I was making my rounds today, I found Johnny's checkout line was three times longer than anyone else's! It went all the way down the frozen food aisle. So I quickly announced, 'We need more cashiers; get more lanes open!' As I tried to get people to change lanes, no one would move. They each said, 'No, it's okay; we want to be in Johnny's lane - we want his 'Thought for the Day.'"

The store manager continued, "It was a joy to watch Johnny delight the customers. I got a lump in my throat when one woman said 'I used to shop at your store once a week, but now I come in every time I go by, because I want to get Johnny's 'Thought for the Day.'"

A few months later, the manager called me again. "Johnny has transformed our store. Now when the floral department has a broken flower or unused corsage, they find an elderly woman or a little girl and pin it on them. Everyone is having a lot of fun creating memories. Our customers are talking about us - they're coming back, and bringing their friends."

A wonderful spirit of service spread throughout the entire store; all because Johnny chose to make a difference!

Johnny's idea wasn't nearly as innovative as it was loving. It came from the heart - it was genuine. That's what touched his customers, his peers and those who read this story.

When it comes to customer service, one person can make a difference and that person can be you. When we truly focus on our customer's needs and show them that we care and do something a little extra to surprise them and delight them, they will be loyal customers for life. Great customer service comes from the inside out; from the heart. It's your choice.

It doesn't matter what your job is, how much change is going on around you, what your boss is doing, what your co-workers are doing, you can make a difference in every interaction you have. If Johnny can do it, there is no reason why each one of us can't do it too.

Great service comes from the heart and what greater gift or service can you give someone today than a free membership into ShopFreeMart?

Will you be a Johnny today?

Cysts

Cysts are usually the result of bacteria that collects under the skin. It grows and produces puss or other kinds of toxins. Take 1-2 droppers of Pure Silver 3x daily and apply the Pure Silver topically four or more times daily.

Other ShopFreeMart products that may assist in the prevention or even the shrinking of cysts are ShopFreeMart Siaga, PureMag, D-Cal and PureCopper and of course ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops should be consumed daily whether or not you are using any other ShopFreeMart products.

Dengue Fever

Dengue fever is an acute febrile disease found in the tropics and Africa. It is caused by four closely related viruses that can be transmitted by mosquitos.

Recommended dosage is 1-2 droppers of ShopFreeMart PureSilver every hour 9x daily for the first two days after which you can drop back to 1-2 droppers of PureSilver 3x daily until the symptoms are gone.

Dengue fever can often get into parts of the body the silver has difficulty reaching and using a nebulizer can help to get more silver into the bloodstream through the lungs. Mix one dropper of PureSilver with 1-2 TBs. of distilled water in a nebulizer and inhale the silver and water vapor for 15-30 minutes 2-4 times daily.

PureSilver can safely be used more frequently and in larger doses if deemed necessary to kill the virus.

ShopFreeMart Siaga is antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-aging. Siaga helps the body produce stem cells, telemeres, redox molecules, human growth hormone, endorphins, super oxide dismutase and glutathione. Siaga supports a strong immune system, overall health and disease prevention.

ShopFreeMart Immunize and ShopFreeMart Activate help heal and prevent leaky gut, which can be a factor in every disease. They also support a healthy and powerful immune system.

All of the ShopFreeMart nutritional products help to strengthen the body's ability to ward off disease.

Depression

Depression is a serious medical illness that involves the brain. It's more than just a feeling of being "down in the dumps" or "blue" for a few days. If you are one of the more than 20 million people in the United States who have depression, the feelings do not go away. They persist and interfere with your everyday life.

Symptoms can include sadness, loss of interest or pleasure in activities you used to enjoy, change in weight, difficulty sleeping or oversleeping, energy loss, feelings of worthlessness, thoughts of death or suicide.

Depression is a disorder of the brain. There are a variety of causes, including genetic, environmental, psychological, and biochemical factors. Depression usually starts between the ages of 15 and 30, and is much more common in women. Women can also get postpartum depression after the birth of a baby. Some people get seasonal affective disorder in the winter from lack of sunlight and depression is one part of bipolar disorder.

Gold mineral is noted for its ability to help decrease anxiety and depression, uplift moods and give a happy feeling of well-being. ShopFreeMart PureGold is the gold that I personally use and recommend and I have noted a dramatic improvement in my own cognitive ability and sense of well-being since taking ShopFreeMart PureGold. Regular use of ShopFreeMart Immunize and Siaga can also strengthen the immune system, helping to ward off disease-causing organisms.

Diabetes

We do not have to die from cancer nor do we have to wait to go blind or amputate our feet because of diabetic conditions. With cancer and diabetic rates going through the roof the time to start treating oneself for both conditions is right now. Prevention of cancer and diabetes could also be called life extension treatments for they go hand in hand; they are really one and the same so why wait till one receives the diagnosis?

Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas to control blood sugar. Too little insulin or resistance to insulin can cause diabetes.

To understand diabetes, it is important to first understand the normal process by which food is broken down and used by the body for energy. Several things happen when food is digested:

A sugar called glucose enters the bloodstream. Glucose is a source of fuel for the body. Insulin is needed to move glucose from the bloodstream into muscle, fat, and liver cells, where it can be used as fuel. An organ called the pancreas makes the necessary insulin.

People with diabetes have high blood sugar. This is because:

Their pancreas does not make enough insulin. Or

Their muscle, fat, and liver cells do not respond to insulin normally.

There are three major types of diabetes:

Type I diabetes is usually diagnosed in childhood. In this disease, the body makes little or no insulin. Daily injections of insulin are needed.

Failure of the pancreas to create insulin is usually two-fold. The pancreas is full of toxins, which prevents the pancreas from doing its job, or it lacks the necessary minerals required for insulin production and usage.

A wound that is dirty and infected cannot heal. Similarly, a pancreas cannot perform its natural function when filled with toxins. Like a wound that will generally heal when disinfected, a pancreas that is properly detoxified will often start functioning normally once again. ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops, PureMag, PureCopper and Sugar-D help keep the pancreas clean and functioning properly.

Each cell has its own DNA, which carries the blueprint for the entire organ that if comes from. In some cases, entire organs have regrown from just a few live cells when DNA of those cells were repaired. The minerals copper, gold and germanium appear to be instrumental in the repair of DNA. ShopFreeMart PureCopper, PureGold and Siaga are products which contain these minerals.

If it were possible to repair DNA of pancreas cells, then as they divide, each new pancreas cell would then produce insulin according to its blueprint, gradually allowing the dysfunctional pancreas to then produce enough insulin so that injections would no longer needed.

Type II diabetes is far more common and makes up most of the diabetes cases. It usually occurs in adulthood, but young people are increasingly being diagnosed with this disease. The pancreas makes insulin, but the body does not respond well to it (insulin resistance).

Insulin Resistance can be from:

1) Receptor sites of the cells being blocked with petrochemicals (Receptoblockers) from pesticides, herbicides, soaps, shampoos, household chemicals, etc:

ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops, PureMag and Sugar-D may help clean receptor sites in the cells allowing insulin to now get inside of the once blocked cells in order to convert glucose to energy.

2) Lack of minerals:

ShopFreeMart Sugar-D provides minerals that are critical to production of insulin and sugar metabolism.

If the receptor sites of the cells are clean, allowing insulin into the cell and the cell has the right source of Chromium and Vanadium, you can say goodbye to Type II Diabetes. Not only does ShopFreeMart Sugar-D have Chromium and Vanadium, Copper is also needed for converting ATP into energy. ShopFreeMart PureCopper is the copper supplement I recommend.

Gestational diabetes is high blood glucose that develops during pregnancy in a woman who normally does not have diabetes. Women who have gestational diabetes are at high risk of Type II Diabetes and cardiovascular disease later in life.

The same thing holds true for Gestational Diabetes as for Type II Diabetes.

Magnesium deficiency is often linked with diabetes and diabetes is often linked with cancer. ShopFreeMart PureMag is what I recommend. ShopFreeMart Sugar-D also supports normal blood sugar.

The Importance of Controlling Blood Sugar:

Controlling your blood sugar is increasingly recognized as a key element in overall health. It not only helps avoid the onset of diabetes and hypoglycemia, but limiting your blood sugar spikes can have other benefits such as improved immune response, lowering your cholesterol and helping to fight off cancer.

Changes in your blood sugar cause your body to release insulin, which is used to properly transport and metabolize the sugar. Since insulin is longer lived than blood sugar, food that causes rapid increases / decreases in blood sugar tends to leave excess insulin. Excess insulin leads to poor health and the onset of serious ailments and diseases.

Rapid changes in blood sugar spikes Foods such as simple sugars that rapidly raise your blood sugar are said to have a high glycemic index. Foods such as complex carbohydrates that take longer to digest, and thus do not as quickly affect your blood sugar level, are called low glycemic foods.

A new study found that low-salt diets increase insulin resistance. Minimum intake of salt on a daily basis is 1/2 tsp. for adults, but it should not be regular table salt. The three salt sources you can trust are Celtic sea salt, Himalayan salt and Redmond (Real Salt). (See Salt)

Underactive thyroid is another major cause of diabetes. Copper and Iodine are necessary to proper thyroid fundtion. PureCopper from ShopFreeMart is the copper I recommend and you can apply Povidone (rust colored) Iodine to the bottoms of your feet to be absorbed through your skin to get the idodine that you need. (See Thyroid)

There is also evidence that the frequency of radiation created in microwave ovens and WIFI causes blood sugar to spike in susceptible individuals and may actually be the cause of one type of diabetes. (See Microwaves)

People who sleep fewer hours than necessary also seem to prefer eating foods that are higher in calories and carbohydrates, which can lead to overeating, weight gain, and obesity over time. Hormones that are released during sleep control appetite and the body's use of energy. For example, insulin controls the rise and fall of blood sugar levels during sleep. People who don't get enough sleep have insulin and blood sugar levels that are similar to those in people who are likely to have diabetes.

People who are inactive are more likely to gain weight because they don't burn up the calories that they take in from food and drinks. An inactive lifestyle also raises your risk for diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, colon cancer, and other health problems.

A new study found that low-salt diets increase the risk of death from heart attacks and strokes and do not prevent high blood pressure.

"If the goal is to prevent hypertension with lower sodium consumption, this study shows it does not work" said the lead author, Dr. Jan A. Staessen, a professor of medicine at the University of Leuven, in Belgium.

Dr. Alderman said the new study is not the only one to find adverse effects of low-sodium diets. He studied people who had "high blood pressure" and found that those who ate the least salt were most likely to die.

He also said "lowering salt consumption has consequences beyond blood pressure. It also, for example, increases insulin resistance (diabetes), which can increase the risk of heart disease." (See Salt)

The most widely accepted idea for life extension is the free-radical theory. According to this theory, we begin to self-destruct" as we age. Our DNA becomes damaged beyond our body's ability to repair and we eventually accumulate enough damage that can't support life, and we die.

The main agents of this destruction are oxygen free radicals; aggressive chemical compounds in the environment as well as those created as a byproduct of your natural metabolism. Over a lifetime, this progressive damage accumulates to the point where your body's basic biochemical processes fail.

One of the most destructive processes is protein carbonylation, in which oxygen radicals attack the carbon-hydrogen bonds in proteins. This process has been implicated as a cause for many age-related diseases, such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, chronic renal failure, adult-onset Diabetes and also Cancer.

ShopFreeMart Siaga is perhaps the single most powerful antioxidant.

ShopFreeMart Sugar-D is known to help with stabilizing blood sugar and help eliminate free radicals, toxins and other pathogens that may be the cause of diabetes. Regular use of ShopFreeMart Immunize can also strengthen the immune system, helping to ward off disease-causing organisms.

For other topics directly related to Diabetes see Sugar / Aspartame / Salt and Thyroid.

Diabetes can also be caused by or related to Candida in the Pancreas.

Diarrhea / Dysentery

Diarrhea can be caused by a bacteria or virus and dysentery is caused by a bacterial infection. By taking 1-2 droppers of Pure Silver 3x daily, you can prevent these infections.

If you already have diarrhea or dysentery, you should take 1 dropper of ShopFreeMart PureSilver every hour for the first nine hours. The PureSilver will help in as little as four hours. Complete improvement may take up to two days. ShopFreeMart Immunize and Acidophilus can also be used.

Diarrhea is most often the other side of the coin called constipation. Diarrhea is often the body's way of getting the bowel to move when you are constipated. In other words, work on the constipation to get rid of the diarrhea. See Constipation, and Bentonite Clay.

Diaper Rash

When babies wear diapers their skin can be in contact with urine for long periods of time. This warm, moist area of the skin will allow bacteria and fungus to grow very quickly. The skin becomes red and can even crack or bleed. By applying Pure Silver to the diaper rash you will be able to kill the cause of the diaper rash in the first two hours. The redness and pain can be remedied in as little as five minutes in mild cases.

To prevent diaper rash, you can make a dilution of 1 dropper of ShopFreeMart PureSilver to each ounce of pure water that you use and spray a thin layer of PureSilver on the inside of the diaper and then allow it to stand for about two minutes. The approach can also be used in children's socks to prevent athlete's foot.

Diaper Rash may also be a symptom of Candida.

Diet

Matt Monarch is a leading expert and voice in the raw food world. He said, "What you do not eat is more important than what you eat." He gave a few good examples of this where people on both raw and cooked food diets reduced greatly their intake of food and the variety they were eating and discovered that they got younger, healed and got better permanently. This is especially important to cancer patients as cancer cells starve a good deal easier than healthy cells.

Earthworms and rats lived up to twice as long when rations were decreased and they were forced to fast a certain number of days each week. This tells us that many people are eating their way into an early grave.

David Wolfe said, "Health, wealth, success and all of that ain't about what you get, it is about what you let go of."

We are all familiar with the adage, "Less is more." This can have many meanings and one meaning is that anything we have to grope for makes that part of our life unfulfilling. Enjoyment of the simple leads to happiness and stays with us a lot longer.

This can be applied to all areas of life and enjoyment of less in dietary indulgence truly is a richer life. By and large, those who have succeeded in healing themselves from cancer and other major diseases have succeeded by removing poisons from their systems, improving body chemistry and improving spiritual and emotional health.

It is the things you eliminate that allows your body to rest and tips the balance in your favor. There are supplements that help with cancer and when combined with a whole lifestyle change that is inconsistent with cancer, that is when people see the real results.

Any discussion of any healing system would be very deficient without a discussion of diet as it relates to the prevention of disease and future maintenance of the body. I will give the most fundamental dietary program I can:

  1. If you cannot recognize it, do not eat it. If you cannot pronounce it, do not eat it. If you do not know what the word in the ingredient list is - I mean really know, do not eat it.
  2. Avoid all dairy and wheat products unless sprouted. This includes white and wheat flour, pastas, breads, rolls, wraps, etc.
  3. Eat lots of raw vegetables. If you are not used to it or if you lack teeth, learn to make green smoothies or juice your vegetables. It is best to have fresh vegetable juice for your evening meal. This will totally change your world. Go as far toward totally raw as you possibly can. Traci's books (www.bestfoodist.com) will give you healthy recipes and really help with your transition to a healthier lifestyle if you need help. With this information you can develop an informed decision about what is the best for you right now and you will have the recipes to make it taste great.
  4. Reduce the intake of animal products. More than one serving of meat per week will certainly cause liver congestion/stone build up in most people.
  5. Avoid refined sugars and starches.
  6. Eat way less than you think you need. No one in our culture has any idea of what they really need. Eating less always leads to better health if the food that is consumed is high quality and consumed with gratitude. Find an improved dietary standard you can follow consistently and stick to it.
  7. Eat lots of fresh, organic, ripe, raw fruit. Have plenty of it. The only thing about fruit is, you have to eat it alone on an empty stomach or in totally green salads or it will backfire, ferment, create disease and cause weakness. It will certainly make your liver worse if you abuse it. Eat plenty of it, but eat it according to the rules.
  8. Go to bed on an empty stomach, or very near empty. Never sedate yourself to sleep with food or drink of any kind.

When you consume mostly raw foods and fresh squeezed juices along with body cleansing, the body has its best chance to heal and renew itself.

When cooking a certain recipe or mixing strong cement, you need precise ingredients in reasonably exact amounts. Building healthy cells is no different and when lacking necessary minerals or adding junk foods and chemicals, you end up with disease.

Therefore, we need to avoid all processed foods, especially starches and sugars, and we need to increase organic potassium intake and reduce protein intake to a minimum. We need to consume comfrey green smoothies and potassium broth and do Liver Cleanses. We need to do Breathing Exercises, drink pure water, Love More and Forgive Everyone and Everything. We need to get rid of clutter that represents stagnation, toxicity; loss or pain and we need to stimulate the Immune System.

We take this as a given that it must be done to thrive and survive. We are not looking for a miracle cure, we are looking for where the work must be done and we get going and do that work, however hard it may appear at first.

Supplementation is more important today than ever before. With the advent of Genetically Modified foods that have a fraction of the minerals of non-GMO foods and which are toxic to the human system, and commercial farming practices that kill the soils, herbicides and pesticides that are carried up into the roots of the plants and become a part of the foods we consume; care must be given to take supplements that not only supply the building blocks of health, but which also help to detoxify the cells of all the toxic chemicals we are being bombarded with.

The following excerpts concerning Senate Document 264 of the 74th Congress, 2nd Session 1936, were found in the March 1936 issue of Cosmopolitan:

"99 percent of the American people are deficient in  minerals, and  a marked deficiency in any one of the more important minerals actually results in disease."

"Do you know that most of us today (1936) are suffering from certain dangerous diet deficiencies which cannot be remedied until the depleted soils from which our foods come are brought into proper mineral balance? The alarming fact is that foods, fruits and vegetables and grains, now being raised on millions of acres of land that no longer contains enough of certain needed minerals, are starving us, no matter how much of them we eat!"

"We know that vitamins are complex chemical substances which are indispensable to nutrition, and that each of them is important for the normal function of some special structure of the body. Disorder and disease result from any vitamin deficiency. It is not commonly realized, however, that vitamins control the body's appropriation of minerals, and that in the absence of minerals they have no function to perform. Lacking vitamins, the system can make some use of minerals, but lacking minerals, vitamins are useless."

"Laboratory tests prove that the fruits, vegetables, grains, eggs and even the milk and meats of today are not what they were a few generations ago. No man of today can eat enough fruits and vegetables to supply his system with the mineral salts he requires for perfect health."

"It is bad news to learn from our leading authorities that 99 percent of the American people are deficient in these minerals, and that a marked deficiency in any one of the more important minerals actually results in disease. Any upset of the balance, any considerable lack of one or another element, however microscopic the body requirement may be, and we sicken, suffer, shorten our lives."

Folks, that was written in 1936. Just think about the farming practices we employ today. Now we use herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, insecticides, and any other cides we can think of. Cide means "being killed" by the way, other examples include genocide, fratricide, homicide; you get the point.

So where does that leave us? If even living foods like raw carrots or cabbages can no longer fully supply us with the nutrients we need, where can we turn?

Today, we are faced with even a bigger concern than lack of nutrition in the foods we eat. Genetically modified crops are, without a doubt, the biggest threat to mankind's survival, which has ever existed. This is not the place to go into great detail. Suffice it to say, there is no evidence to support the claim that GM foods are safe for human consumption and there is a great deal of evidence that they are not. Many have already died and cattle will rather go hungry than eat GM maize!

The claims of greater yields are also fictitious; to the contrary, the soil will often become completely infertile within 7 years.

Furthermore, the human digestive and metabolic systems were designed to process specific proteins, carbohydrates etc. having very specific genetic structures and the digestive enzymes do not break down the genes in GM foods!

When the genes of maize are changed for example, the result looks like maize, but genetically it is not maize, which leads inevitably to foods which cannot be digested. This has already happened and the evidence that GM "foods" are poisonous to humans and animals mounts daily.

In addition to all genetically modified fruits, grains and vegetables, there are many other poisons in the guise of food, which can have similar effects. These include vegetables that are not organically grown, any processed foods, microwaved foods and flesh cut from the carcasses of other mammals.

Foodstuffs such as a double cheeseburger with MSG and who knows what else and similar junk foods not only glue up your body, but also your feelings and make it difficult to achieve any quality of focus. Additionally, the dying feelings of animals are stored in the tissues and will be taken up by your body, vibrating as fear and death without you even noticing it.

If you eat free-range chicken once per week, the disturbance is going to be minimal. However, if you eat factory farm produced beef every day, the effect is going to be huge. Incidentally, this can also make you impotent!

Aspartame is a chemical that was created to kill ants. It turned out being sweeter than sugar and a lot cheaper, so in spite of the fact that it causes upwards of 99 diseases (including most of the real bad ones) food manufacturers add it to their foods and beverages as a way to cut costs and increase profits. All artificial sweeteners and of course, our good friend refined cane and beet sugar provide the perfect medium for the growth of fungus.

Fungus and mold grow in warm, moist, and sugared areas such as the intestines or vagina. Taking sugar out of your diet and using silver both topically and internally can take care of the fungus problem. Take 2-3 droppers of Pure Silver 3x daily and apply it topically 1-4 times daily, if needed. This dosage should be continued for at least two weeks after the symptoms are no longer present.

Other things that all people are allergic to (some more than others) are grains and flour products made from grains of almost all types. (Grains that are sprouted however are full of enzymes and other life-giving nutrients.) Dairy products should be avoided and all hydrogenated fats and oils. The healthiest oils are coconut and extra virgin olive oil.

Eggs are filled with nutrition and organic eggs from free-range chickens are by far superior to eggs from chickens that are cooped up and eat processed foods. Don't worry about cholesterol if you are using nothing but coconut or olive oil.

Generally, fruits and vegetables that are vine ripened in the season where you live are good to eat. Never cook fruit and never eat fruit with any cooked food. Eat fruit on an empty stomach at least half hour before eating any other food.

Fruit was designed to leave the stomach in 30 minutes and if it doesn't it putrefies and turns to acid-forming gas. Mixing it with any cooked food will keep it in the stomach for many hours.

You will get plenty of Calcium and protein from deep green vegetables, but only if you eat them. Look at the big bones and muscle structures of animals that only eat grass and herbs.

Raw nuts generally are very nutritious, but avoid peanuts, as they are high in mold content. Try to find organic nuts that have not been irradiated, because they will be sterile and will not have any enzymes. Almonds are the most alkaline of the nut family and soaking raw almonds for 12 hours before eating increases the enzymes and nutrition many times over.

Clean, high quality food as you see, is essential to your physical health, and if absent will deny you the ability to create your life the way that you want it.

A new study found that low-salt diets increase the risk of death from heart attacks and strokes and do not prevent high blood pressure.

The investigators found that the less salt people ate, the more likely they were to die of heart disease - 50 people in the lowest third of salt consumption (2.5 grams of sodium per day) died during the study as compared with 24 in the medium group (3.9 grams of sodium per day) and 10 in the highest salt consumption group (6.0 grams of sodium per day). And while those eating the most salt, had on average a slight increase in systolic blood pressure - a 1.71-millimeter increase in pressure for each 2.5-gram increase in sodium per day - they were no more likely to develop hypertension.

To survive and thrive, the body needs salt. That's a medical fact. Consider that persons in critical condition are often given intravenous injections (IV). IV's are nothing more than purified water and salt. It has been said, "IV is the only cure that doctors have in his or her bag of tricks."

I recommend at least ½ tsp. of salt daily, but it should be from a good source like Redmond Salt or Himalayan Salt is available at most health food stores or can be purchased at www.realsalt.com. Typical table salt is highly processed and has Aluminum added to prevent clumping. (See Salt)

Eating most of your food raw is ideal, but most people are not going to be able to accomplish a completely raw diet, and will end up cooking some percentage of their food. When you do cook however, avoid food cooked in a microwave. (See Microwaves)

Proper diet and nutritional support can help most people heal naturally and stop their medications. However, when reducing medications (especially those for blood pressure) consult with your physician.

Over the past century, the quality of fresh food has declined due to soil depletion, unsustainable farming practices, overproduction of crops, and the use of pesticides and herbicides. You can no longer assume you're getting all of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and phytonutrients you need by eating a multiplicity of fresh produce, unless you are eating food grown with ShopFreeMart Precious Minerals.

Following a healthy lifestyle is one of the best ways to promote and maintain circulatory health. Eating a high fiber and low fat diet will help keep blood flowing. Getting regular exercise, maintaining a healthy weight, and quitting smoking will also be helpful.

People who sleep fewer hours also seem to prefer eating foods that are higher in calories and carbohydrates, which can lead to overeating, weight gain, and obesity over time. Hormones that are released during sleep control appetite and the body's use of energy. For example, insulin controls the rise and fall of blood sugar levels during sleep. People who don't get enough sleep have insulin and blood sugar levels that are similar to those in people who are likely to have diabetes.

It is virtually impossible today to get all of the nutrition you need unless perhaps you have an organic garden. Supplementation then is critical to good health and longevity and ShopFreeMart has the best supplements at the most reasonable prices. Providing missing nutrients that your body is craving may stop some of your food cravings; you might end up eating less, lose weight (if you need to) and even save money in the process.

Don't Quit

Don't Quit by Edgar A. Guest

When Things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and debts are high,
And you want to Smile but have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won if he'd stuck it out,
Don't give up though the pace seems slow,
You might succeed with another blow.

Often the struggler has given up,
When he might captured the victor's cup.
And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown,

Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar,
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.

Drugs / Surgery

Realize that people have an agenda to sell many harmful products and will often go to great length to disseminate false information to do so. Drug companies hire doctors and scientists big money to write reports and reviews about drugs that they know to be completely false.

Every so often when a drug has destroyed the lives of countless thousands of people and enough evidence is established, the drug companies are forced to pay back a few million of the billions of dollars they have milked out innocent and trusting people.

The drug companies write all of the modern textbooks used in the medical universities today. The majority of doctors today are little more than legal drug pushers and many of them receive huge bonuses based upon the amount of certain drugs that they prescribe.

Some doctors may be naïve, but I am certain that a majority of them realize they are playing a role in a huge moneymaking racket.

A friend of mine has a brother who is a heart surgeon. I won't mention any names, but she told me that her brother, who worked at a very large hospital confided in her that the directors of the hospital called a private meeting with all of the heart surgeons and told them that if they wanted to keep all of the nice operating equipment that they had, they would have to increase the number of surgeries performed.

He told my friend that the doctors began recommending heart surgeries to people who did not need them based upon the fact that these patients each had good medical insurance. He said that a number of these patients died from complications in surgery.

Misdiagnosis, malpractice, unnecessary surgeries and prescription drugs kill upwards of one million people annually.

According to the groundbreaking 2003 medical report Death by Medicine, by Drs. Gary Null, Carolyn Dean, Martin Feldman, Debora Rasio and Dorothy Smith, 783,936 people in the United States die every year from conventional medicine mistakes. That's the equivalent of six jumbo jet crashes a day for an entire year. But where is the media attention for this tragedy? Where is the government support for stopping these medical mistakes before they happen?

According to a 1995 U.S. iatrogenic report, "Over a million patients are injured in U.S. hospitals each year, and approximately 280,000 die annually as a result of these injuries. Therefore, the iatrogenic death rate dwarfs the annual automobile accident mortality rate of 45,000 and accounts for more deaths than all other accidents combined." This report was issued 17 years ago, when America had 58 million fewer citizens and drug company scandals like the Vioxx recall were yet to occur.

The deaths listed in these reports are only the ones that the medical establishment admits to. The actual number may be several times more as most deaths are listed as "natural causes". Consider also that these statistics are "ancient" in a world where thousands of new and more dangerous drugs have been developed. Today, health care comprises roughly 20 percent of the United States' gross national product.

The Hippocratic Oath is an oath that historically has been taken by physicians and other healthcare professionals swearing to practice medicine ethically.

One of the clauses in that oath states: "I will not give a lethal drug to anyone, nor will I advise such a plan; and similarly I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion."

Hippocrates (460 BC - 370 BC) was an ancient Greek physician and is considered one of the most outstanding figures in the history of medicine. He is referred to as the father of Western medicine in recognition of his lasting contributions to that field.

Hippocrates said, "Let thy food be thy medicine." That is excellent advice and is why so many of the ShopFreeMart products are so beneficial.

Ear Infections

Ear infections are a serious problem. In fact, Centers for Disease Control has requested that physicians no longer prescribe antibiotics for ear infections. The antibiotics make the problem worse by making the bacteria more resistant. We now have bacteria that we can't kill with antibiotics. An ear infection can be a result of bacteria that gets in the inner ear and duplicates itself, destroying healthy tissue along the way. 

This could possibly leave a person deaf. These bacteria can be destroyed by Pure Silver liquid after just five minutes of contact. Use a dropper to place five drops into the ear canal while the ear is pointed towards the roof. Keep the ear tilted up for 12 minutes. This will allow the ShopFreeMart PureSilver liquid to get as far down behind the ear as possible. Repeat the process in each ear every 12 hours. You will also want to take 1-2 droppers of PureSilver 3x daily.

Regular use of ShopFreeMart Immunize and Siaga can help strengthen the immune system and avoid a lot of otherwise difficult problems.

Edema

Edema is an observable swelling from fluid accumulation in body tissues. Edema most commonly occurs in the feet and legs, where it is referred to as peripheral edema. The swelling is the result of the accumulation of excess fluid under the skin in the spaces within the tissues.

An accumulation of fluid in the air spaces (alveoli) in the lungs is called pulmonary edema. Excess fluid sometimes collects in cavities in the abdomen called "ascites") or in the chest called "pleural effusion"). Anasarca refers to the severe, widespread accumulation of fluid in the all of the tissues and cavities of the body at the same time.

Pitting Edema

If you push your finger into the tissue in the front (or just to the side of) your shin bone and your finger leaves an indentation - almost a finger print - that takes a while to fill back in, you have pitting edema. Most overweight people experience this phenomenon late in the afternoon and/or at night after being on their feet all day. The excess fluid pools around the lower legs and seeps into the soft tissues. In the morning, after the body has been horizontal through the night, the fluid redistributes, and the pitting edema goes away but then reoccurs as the day goes on. Even people who aren't all that overweight but who do have elevated insulin levels will have some degree of excess fluid accumulation even if they don't experience pitting edema as evidence of it.

One of the first things that happens when people go on low-carb diets is a rapid improvement in insulin sensitivity.  Because the low-carb diet starts to quickly banish the insulin resistance, insulin levels fall quickly and as insulin falls, the stimulus to the kidneys to retain fluids goes away, and the kidneys begin to rapidly release fluid. One of the common experiences at the start of low-carb dieting is the incessant running back and forth to the bathroom to urinate this excess fluid away, which is both good news and bad news.

The good news is that it's great to get rid of the excess fluid but it comes at a cost, which is the bad news. As the excess fluid goes, it takes with it sodium an extremely important electrolyte. When sodium levels fall below a critical threshold (which can happen within a short time), symptoms often occur, the most common being fatigue, headache, cramps and postural hypotension.

Postural hypotension happens when you stand up too quickly and feel faint. Or even pass out briefly. It's a sign of dehydration. So if you've started your low-carb diet, made your multiple runs to the bathroom, and jump up off the couch to answer the phone and feel like your going to faint (or actually do pass out momentarily) and have to sit back down quickly, you've got postural hypotension. It's really easy to fix - you simply need to take more sodium and drink more water. Start your morning by taking 1 tsp. of Celtic sea salt in a glass of warm water and use another 1/2 of salt throughout the day. 

"Pitting" edema is by far the most common form of edema and can be demonstrated by applying pressure to the swollen area by depressing the skin with a finger. If the pressure causes an indentation that persists after the release of the pressure, the edema is referred to as pitting edema. Any form of pressure, such as from the elastic in socks, can induce pitting with this type of edema.

Edema is often indicative of either fatty liver or heart failure or both. My feet and ankles were slightly swollen at the time I started taking all of the ShopFreeMart products and now two months later, all swelling is gone and my feet and ankles look totally normal. I believe that especially the ShopFreeMart Sugar-D has made a major difference for me personally.

In "non-pitting" edema, which usually affects the legs or arms, pressure that is applied to the skin does not result in a persistent indentation. Non-pitting edema can occur in certain disorders of the lymphatic system that may occur after a mastectomy, lymph node surgery, or congenitally. Another cause of non-pitting edema of the legs is called pretibial myxedema, which is a swelling over the shin that occurs in some patients with hyperthyroidism. Non-pitting edema of the legs is difficult to treat. Diuretic medications are generally not effective, although elevation of the legs periodically during the day and compressive devices may reduce the swelling. See Fatty Liver.

Ketogenic Diet

My latest research indicates that low protein causes the liquid to escape from the cells into the tissues and cause edema. The answer to this would be a ketogenic diet. Ramping up the fat intake as the single best way to hurry the low-carb or keto adaptation along. Another little secret is to keep an eye on the protein intake. Too much protein will prevent the shift into ketoses because the liver will convert some of the protein into glucose. This glucose will then be used first and slow down the ketogenic process. Which, of course, prompts the question, how much protein is too much? 

As long as you're getting your protein from meat, especially fatty cuts of meat, you're probably okay. If you go for the extremely lean cuts of meat, say, skinless chicken breasts, or if you are supplementing your diet with low-fat protein shakes, you could have a little more trouble low-carb adapting. If you're going the shake route, I would recommend you add some coconut oil to the shakes for a couple of reasons. First, you'll hasten the keto-adaptation, and secondly, coconut oil will help remove the fat from your liver.

As I said, you need to really crank up the fat intake to start creating ketones as quickly as possible. If you don't like fatty cuts of meat, you can add a little medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) to your diet. MCT are absorbed more like carbohydrates and are used quickly by the body. They are almost never incorporated into the fat cells, so they burn quickly, and any extra that might be hanging around are converted to ketones. So, MCT will drive the ketone production process.    And so will virgin, cold-pressed coconut oil if you prefer that.

You can find MCT oil at most health food or natural grocery stores. It has never bothered me, but some people can get a little nauseated if they take too much of it, so if you decide to give it a try, start out slowly or go with the coconut oil.

Aside from the occasional carb cravings, the most common symptoms experienced by those getting started on low-carb diets are fatigue, headaches, light-headedness or dizziness, and cramping. Not everyone experiences these symptoms, but let's look at what to do to avoid them or treat them should you already be experiencing one or more.

Increasing sodium is another one of the many counter-intuitive things about low-carb dieting. Just like eating more fat to lower your cholesterol, you've got to start thinking differently. The low-carb diet is one that absolutely requires more sodium. A lot more sodium.

If you have brutal headaches like some people get when starting on a low-carb diet, add sodium and drink extra water.

Even if you don't have pitting edema, postural hypotension or headaches, you still need more sodium if you are starting out on or following a low-carb diet. It's critically important that you get extra sodium. I can't make this case too strongly.

An easy way to get extra sodium along with magnesium and potassium (two other electrolytes you need) is by drinking bone broth. Unfortunately, you typically have to make the good stuff yourself. You can get chicken broth and beef broth at most grocery stores, but it's not nearly as good as the broth you can make yourself. It requires a little time, but you can make a bunch and freeze it in small containers.

In addition to broth, get some Celtic Sea Salt, Himalayan Salt, Real Salt or one of the other grayish, pinkish looking salts and replace your normal salt with these, and use them lavishly.

These salts have been harvested either from ancient sea beds or obtained by evaporation of sea water with high mineral content and contain about 70 percent of the sodium of regular salt (which has been heated, refined, bleached and processed until it is pretty much pure sodium chloride, often with aluminum and other anti-caking agents added). The other 30 percent of the volume is other minerals and micronutrients (including iodine) found in mineral-rich seas. I much prefer these salts taste-wise to regular salt, and I salt the heck out of all my food with it.

Electrolytes

The most common cause of virtually all the symptoms listed above is an imbalance in electrolytes. Following a low-carb diet results in a rapid lowering of insulin levels, although a good thing, can create problems in the beginning. We'll address the electrolytes in the order of importance.

Sodium

When you are overweight and insulin resistant, you have a lot of insulin circulating in your blood most of the time. This excess insulin does a number of bad things to you. Gary Taubes wrote an entire book about how excess insulin makes you store fat in your fat cells, but the story doesn't end there. Excess insulin also drives the kidneys to retain fluid, which is why many obese people retain a lot of extraneous fluid and experience pitting edema in their lower legs.

Magnesium

The low-carb diet doesn't really cause a massive depletion of magnesium like it does with the sodium and potassium, but most people who are overweight, insulin resistant and/or hypertensive or diabetic are deficient in magnesium.

Even people with lipid problems are often magnesium deficient. In fact, even people who don't seem to have health problems can often be magnesium deficient because most people don't get enough. About 70 percent of people are magnesium deficient, so in my opinion, it's important to supplement this vital mineral.

Good magnesium levels help regulate potassium as well, so keeping your magnesium adequate helps with your potassium as well. Furthermore, approximately 300 plus of our enzymes require magnesium as a co-factor to make them work properly.

Since magnesium is used in 300+ different chemical reactions in the body, a shortage of magnesium can cause problems. One of the most common ones is an increase in cravings. Often simply replenishing magnesium gets rid of many of the food cravings people have.

The best way to supplement with magnesium is transdermally as mentioned in the first chapter of this book. We've found it best to rub magnesium oil on your skin in the evening because it helps you relax so that you sleep better. About the only problem people ever have with magnesium is loose stools. If that happens and it is unwelcome - simply reduce your dosage until your stools normalize.

Potassium

Potassium is linked to sodium and if you lose a lot of sodium through the diuretic effect of the low-carb diet, you'll ultimately lose a lot of potassium as well. Keeping your sodium intake up as mentioned above will help preserve your potassium as well.

And keeping your potassium levels up helps to ensure that you don't lose a lot of lean muscle mass during your weight loss. Plus, just as with sodium, adequate potassium prevents cramping and fatigue.

If you are losing enough Potassium that you are experiencing cramping or fatigue, you can purchase an over the counter Potassium supplement at your health food store and take up to 500 mg per day.

There are a couple of prescription medicines that you've got to be aware of if you markedly increase your potassium intake, so if you're on blood pressure medicines, ask your doctor if it's okay for you to take potassium.

Hydration

Many people believe that coffee, tea, soft drinks, etc. are nothing but water with a little flavoring in them. After all, if you start out with a glass of water and put tea bag in it, the water doesn't go away. It's still there; it just becomes tea-flavored water. Well, turns out that's not actually the case.

Dehydration can cause severe cramps in your hands, feet and legs. Your first thought may be "my potassium is too low", so you start taking potassium. No change in the cramping situation, in fact if anything, it gets worse. So next you try calcium and still no improvement.

Finally, you start drinking water and the cramping goes away. Did you realize you can lose a couple of pounds during sleep simply by breathing water vapor away, which is why your leg cramps may be more severe in the night time? In fact you might become cramp free, just by upping your water intake.

Water also has a lipolytic (fat burning) effect. Those who drink a lot of water have increased lipolysis.

When you drink water, you also dilute your blood for a while. During the time your blood is diluted, the concentration of the various substances carried in the blood decreases, including the levels of insulin. The typical blood volume is about 5 liters, so drinking a liter of water would increase the blood volume temporarily by about 20 percent, which would mean the concentration of insulin and other molecules in the blood would fall by about 20 percent.

A 20 percent drop in insulin levels would allow fat to escape from the cells and would facilitate its transfer into the mitochondria for burning.

Those starting a low-carb diet are prone to dehydration because excess ketones are flushed out via the kidneys along with a lot of fluid, so when you start your diet, consciously increase your fluid intake. Create yourself some sort of regimen that ensures you consume plenty of water throughout the day, otherwise you probably won't do it. 

By drinking more water, you will feel better; you will have more energy, avoid cramping and you'll actually burn more fat. Don't make the mistake of thinking that drinking a lot of coffee, tea, booze or other diuretic fluid is a replacement for water intake.

If you drink either distilled water or water that comes through an RO filter, both of which are depleted of minerals, add a pinch of one of the natural salts to each bottle. I add enough so that the water just barely hints of a salty taste.

Fatty Liver
fatty liver

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the result of toxic accumulation of fat in our liver. Over time, excess fat storage in the liver can promote inflammation, oxidative damage and ultimately fibrosis or the replacement of functional liver cells with scar tissue.

Fatty liver is strongly associated with insulin resistance and is considered a manifestation of metabolic syndrome in the liver. Obesity is a strong risk factor for metabolic syndrome and fatty liver, however, you do not necessarily have to be obese to develop these conditions. Besides these metabolic aberrations, a number of medications can cause fatty liver.

Symptoms of Fatty Liver

When we try to look for symptoms relating to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease the signs are not clear. You may experience the following:

Fatigue
Weight loss
Pain in upper abdomen
Jaundice—which is shown by a yellow discolorocation in our skin or mucus membrane
Swelling of our body (referred to as ascites and edema) because of the lack of protein being produced by the liver
Increased bruising
Mental confusion

Weight Loss

Losing weight may be one of the best ways to treat NAFLD because it reduces fat in the entire body, including the liver. It’s crucial to drink adequate amounts of plain water when embarking on a weight loss regimen so that the metabolic toxins that are being generated can be excreted through the urine.

Black Seed Oil

A product of black cumin, black seed oil (Found in ShopFreeMart Siaga) has proved efficacious for many ailments, including Fatty Liver. Studies have indicated that black seed oil reduces the progression of Fatty Liver and reduces the risk of complications.

Turmeric

Turmeric will help the body rid itself of the inflammation that can occur with fatty liver and it will aid in digestion. As a supplement, professionals recommend that you start with 450 milligrams of beneficial turmeric, or curcumin, daily.

Milk Thistle

More than 10,000 recently published papers have shown that milk thistle, both silymarin and silybin, reduces the inflammation and oxidative stress of NAFLD. Since milk thistle is so widely available, this is one of the most promising treatments for NAFLD.

Dandelion Root

Dandelion root works very much like milk thistle, that helps to detoxify the liver, heal liver cirrhosis and inflammation and is a great support to the liver. Read more here on how to use dandelion root to remedy fatty liver and prevent future recurrence.

Beetroot

Beetroot is one of the best foods for cleansing the liver and providing liver support. Betaine in beetroot is a compound that helps liver cells eliminate toxins and preventing toxins from being reabsorbed. Beetroot has high anti-inflammatory properties that help to detoxify the liver. Eating one or two Tbs. of raw beet daily or drinking raw beet juice is beneficial for detoxing your liver.

The last bit of advice I'll give is that you need to work to defat your liver as quickly as possible. The good news is that you can do it quickly on a low-carb diet. Studies have shown major improvement in just 10 days or so.  It's important to defat your liver to help you lose weight more quickly because the liver breaks down insulin. 

If your blood sugar goes up, the pancreas makes and secretes insulin to drive it down. It does so by driving the glucose into the cells. At the same time, insulin drives fat into the fat cells and keeps it there. As long as the insulin is in the circulation, it's going to be preventing fat from leaving the fat cells. The liver is the organ that breaks down and gets rid of the insulin and a healthy liver does it a lot better than a liver full of fat.

One of the liver's most important jobs is detoxification of harmful substances. Most people consume medications, food and drinks that are toxic. The liver has to detoxify all of these things. Same with many drugs - both prescription and over-the-counter.

Tylenol puts a major detoxification burden on the liver. Excessive coffee, tea  or alcohol, and all medications make extra work for your liver, which means it can't get rid of insulin as well and can't regulate metabolism in general as well as it does when it isn't busy removing  toxins.

So, if you really want to hit it hard in the early phases of your low-carb diet and reach low-carb adaptation at warp speed, I would recommend limiting coffee, tea, soft drinks, alcohol and all medications.

Here is the excellent bone broth recipe I mentioned above. With this version you can either make a large amount in a big stock pot and freeze a bunch of it in individual packages or you can cut it down to a smaller recipe.

Terrific Bone Broth Recipe

This is the restaurant recipe for massive quantities, so you can reduce accordingly. Just make sure you reduce all ingredients proportionally.

2 oz roasted garlic (weight)
10 oz roasted red onions (weight)
4.5 gallons water (volume)
22 oz tomato paste (weight)
4 oz cilantro with stems
2 pounds chicken back bones (weight)
16 oz tomato pulp (weight)
6 oz salt (weight) I would use Celtic Sea Salt or other such salt here
1 oz black pepper (weight)
1 oz olive oil (volume)

Roast onions and garlic in olive oil for approximately 15 to 20 minutes.

Add all ingredients to water, chicken and tomato paste.

Let simmer over medium fire until cooked.

Approximate yield is 640 ounces or 5 gallons.

Note: Some patients may require surgical treatment to relieve chronic edema that is caused by venous insufficiency; however cleaning the blood and improving circulation are the short-term and long-term answer to this problem for most people. (See Blood Circulation and Cleaning The Blood)

ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops, Sugar-D and Siaga may help with removal of excess fluids from the body and help eliminate free radicals, toxins and other pathogens that may be the cause of edema. Regular use of ShopFreeMart Immunize will also strengthen the immune system, helping to ward off disease-causing organisms. ShopFreeMart PureCopper also helps to cleanse and strengthen the liver and kidneys, which in turn can help with Edema.

Eggs - 12 Reasons For Eating Eggs


egg

Eggs might just be the easiest, cheapest and most versatile way to up your protein intake.

Beyond easily upping your daily protein count, each 85-calorie eggs packs a solid 7 grams of the muscle-builder-eggs also boost your health. They're loaded with amino acids, antioxidants and iron. Don't just reach for the whites, though; the yolks boast a fat-fighting nutrient called choline, so opting for whole eggs can actually help you trim down.

When you're shopping for eggs, pay attention to the labels. You should be buying organic, when possible. These are certified by the USDA and are free from antibiotics, vaccines and hormones. As for color, that's your call. The difference in color just varies based on the type of chicken - they both have the same nutritional value, says Molly Morgan, RD, a board certified sports specialist dietician based in upstate New York. Here are 12 incredible effects the mighty egg can have on the human body.

1. Reduce Risk of Heart Disease

LDL cholesterol became known as "bad" cholesterol because LDL particles transport their fat molecules into artery walls, and drive atherosclerosis - basically, gumming up of the arteries. (HDL particles, by contrast, can removefat molecules from artery walls.) But not all LDL particles are made equal, and there are various subtypes that differ in size. Bigger is definitely better - many studies have shown that people who have predominantly small, dense LDL particles have a higher risk of heart disease than people who have mostly large LDL particles. Here's the beauty part: Even if eggs tend to raise LDL cholesterol in some people, studies show that the LDL particles change from small and dense to large, slashing the risk of cardiovascular problems.

2. Boost Immune System

If you don't want to play chicken with infections, viruses and diseases, add an egg or two to your diet daily. Just one large egg contains almost a quarter (22%) of your RDA of selenium, a nutrient that helps support your immune system and regulate thyroid hormones. Kids should eat eggs, especially. If children and adolescents don't get enough selenium, they could develop Keshan disease and Kashin-Beck disease, two conditions that can affect the heart, bones and joints.

3. Improve Cholesterol Profile

There are three ideas about cholesterol that practically everyone knows: 1) High cholesterol is a bad thing; 2) There are good and bad kinds of cholesterol; 3) Eggs contain plenty of it. Doctors are generally most concerned with the ratio of "good" cholesterol (HDL) to bad cholesterol (LDL). One large egg contains 212 mg of cholesterol, but this doesn't mean that eggs will raise the "bad" kind in the blood. The body constantly produces cholesterol on its own, and a large body of evidence indicates that eggs can actually improve your cholesterol profile. How? Eggs seem to raise HDL (good) cholesterol while increasing the size of LDL particles.

4. Increase Energy

Just one egg contains about 15% of your RDA of vitamin B2, also called riboflavin. It's just one of eight B vitamins, which all help the body to convert food into fuel, which in turn is used to produce energy. Eggs are just one of the 25 Best Foods for a Toned Body!

5. Improve Hair and Skin

B-complex vitamins are also necessary for healthy skin, hair, eyes, and liver. (In addition to vitamin B2, eggs are also rich in B5 and B12.) They also help to ensure the proper function of the nervous system. For more foods full of B vitamins, click here for this list of the essential 40 Best Foods for Muscle and Strength!

6. Feel More Satisfied and Eat Less

Eggs are such a good source of quality protein that all other sources of protein are measured against them. (Eggs get a perfect score of 100.) Many studies have demonstrated the effect of high-protein foods on appetite. Simply put, they take the edge off. You might not be surprised to learn that eggs score high on a scale called the Satiety Index, a measure of how much foods contribute to the feeling of fullness.

7. Lose Fat

Largely because of their satiating power, eggs have been linked with fat loss. A study on this produced some remarkable results: Over an eight-week period, people ate a breakfast of either eggs or bagels, which contained the same amount of calories. The egg group lost 65% more body weight, 16% more body fat, experienced a 61% greater reduction in BMI and saw a 34% greater reduction in waist circumference!

8. Protect Your Brain

Eggs are brain food. That's largely because of an essential nutrient calledcholine. It's a component of cell membranes and is required to synthesize acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter. Studies have shown that a lack of choline has been linked to neurological disorders and decreased cognitive function. Shockingly, more than 90% of Americans eat less than the daily recommended amount of choline, according to a U.S. dietary survey.

9. Prevent Muscle Wasting

Among the lesser-known amazing things the body can do: It can make 11 essential amino acids, which are necessary to sustain life. Thing is, there are 20 essential amino acids that your body needs. Guess where the other 9 can be found? That's right. A lack of those 9 amino acids can lead to muscle wasting, decreased immune response, weakness, fatigue, and changes to the texture of your skin and hair.

10. Less Stress and Anxiety

If you're deficient in the 9 amino acids that can be found in an egg, it can have mental effects. A 2004 study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences described how supplementing a population's diet with lysine significantly reduced anxiety and stress levels, possibly by modulating serotonin in the nervous system.

11. Protection For Your Eyes

Two antioxidants found in eggs - lutein and zeaxanthin - have powerful protective effects on the eyes. You won't find them in a carton of Egg Beaters - they only exist in the yolk. The antioxidants significantly reduce the risk of macular degeneration and cataracts, which are among the leading causes of vision impairment and blindness in the elderly. In a study published in theAmerican Journal of Clinical Nutrition, participants who ate 1.3 egg yolks per day for four-and-a-half weeks saw increased blood levels of zeaxanthin by 114-142% and lutein by 28-50%!

12. Improve Your Bones And Teeth

Eggs are one of the few natural sources of Vitamin D, which is important for the health and strength of bones and teeth. It does this primarily by aiding the absorption of calcium. (Calcium, incidentally, is important for a healthy heart, colon and metabolism.) For more easy metabolism-boosting tips, check out these 55 Best Ways to Boost Your Metabolism!

Enema

Salt and Soda Enema:

1 Tbs. sea salt (I recommend Himalayan or Real Salt)
1 Tbs. baking soda
2 quarts water

Directions for Standard Enema:

Fill enema bag
Hang about 4 feet above the floor (on towel rack)
Knee-chest position with chest against floor and rectum higher than head.
Insert nozzle tip into rectum, using lubricant (olive oil) if needed
Empty water into rectum, and hold inside rectum as much as possible
Massage abdomen in counter-clockwise direction
When bag is empty or no more fluid can be held, remove tip
Lie on each side for 5 minutes, while massaging abdomen
Discard contents of rectum into toilet
Repeat until bag is empty.

I personally prefer taking an enema in the bathtub.

Fill the tub with hot water and add Epsom salts and/or Miracle Soap. I also at times use baking soda.

Hang the enema bag from a string or wire connected to the shower head at the desired height. Fill the enema bag with warm water and desired ingredients.

While lying on your back or left side, insert the tube and take in water. The descending colon is on the left side and you want to get the water into the ascending colon on the right side. Raise up your buttocks the best you can while rolling to your right side. Then massage up the left side of your abdomen and across the top to the right side to encourage the water to move to that side. Then jiggle the right side of your stomach to cause the water to swish back and forth like a washing machine. Hold as long as you can, then step out on a towel to the toilet and evacuate your bowel.

Doing this three or more times in a session will begin to soften up and remove a lot of hardened fecal material. Without getting the water over to the ascending colon, an enema is somewhat superficial. If done correctly, you can irrigate the colon quite thoroughly.

The Coffee Enema for Liver Detoxification

The use of coffee in enemas for detoxification purposes is well known. It is a common herbal remedy that has been used by holistic and alternative medicine professionals for many years.

Recipe 1

The Coffee Enema for Liver Detoxification

The coffee enema has been used for many years to detoxify the liver. It is a low-volume enema that remains only in the sigmoid colon. There is a duct between the sigmoid colon and the liver called the entero-hepatic circulation system. When the stool reaches this point, it contains many toxins, which are sent to the liver for detoxification. The coffee enema will increase the transit time in the bowel. The caffeine that is absorbed into the entero-hepatic system causes the liver ducts, including the bile ducts, to empty into the sigmoid colon and be eliminated. Releasing the toxins in the liver ducts makes room for toxins from the body to enter the liver for detoxification. The alkaloids in the caffeine stimulate the production of glutathione-S-transferase, which is an enzyme that facilitates the liver detoxification pathways.

Coffee enemas will not waste minerals and electrolytes because they have already been absorbed in the previous sections of the intestines. The coffee enema is safe even for people who are sensitive to caffeine because the coffee remains in the sigmoid colon, where it will not be absorbed, provided the proper amount is used and the enema bag is not place too high.

Boil 1 quart of water in a non-aluminum pot. Add 2 tablespoons or more of organic coffee and continue to boil for 5 minutes. Remove pot from the heat and add 1 tablespoon of unsulfured molasses (optional). Cool to 90 degrees F. or less. Pour the coffee mixture through a fine mesh strainer or coffee filter into two 1 cup measuring cups. Clamp the end of the enema bag. Pour 1 cup of filtered coffee mixture into the enema bag. Release the clamp until the coffee begins to flow out, and then clamp the bag again immediately.

Hang the enema bag at a height of about 3 feet, not higher. Lie on the floor and gently insert the nozzle. Use olive oil on the nozzle if needed. Release the clamp and let the coffee mixture flow into the sigmoid colon. Clamp the tubing as soon as there is a sensation of "fullness" or when the enema bag is empty and remove the nozzle. If possible, without forcing yourself, retain the enema for 10 minutes, and then empty your bowel.

After emptying your bowel, repeat the process with the remaining (1 cup) of coffee mixture. If you cannot hold 1 cup of coffee mixture enema, take several smaller enemas.

When the bile duct empties, you will hear or feel a squirting sensation in the area of your right rib cage. After feeling the bile emptying, you can stop taking enemas for that day.

If you do not feel the bile duct emptying after one week of daily enemas, increase the strength of the coffee or take slightly larger volume enemas.

You should not feel nervous or jittery after the enema because the coffee does not get absorbed systemically. If you do feel nervous, jittery, have palpitations, or irregular heartbeats, after a coffee enema; reduce the amount of coffee by half or more.

Repeat enemas as needed to detoxify chemical toxins and/or allergic reactions.

Recipe 2

Supplies:

You will need to buy a re-usable enema kit, available at most pharmacies.
Distilled or purified water.
Organic coffee, any roasting level will do.
French Press pot.

Preparing the Coffee:

Bring 8 cups of water to a boil.
Grind eight heaping spoonsful of organic coffee. Put it in a French press pot.
Pour the water over the coffee grounds and let it steep then cool for one hour.
After this amount of time, the liquid should be about body temperature. If you stick your finger in the water it should be lukewarm, but not hot.
Filter the coffee grounds and then pour the coffee liquid into the enema bag.

Directions:

Follow the directions that accompany the enema kit. Lie on your right side, inject and retain the coffee for 10-20 minutes.
I recommend lightly massaging your abdomen from left to right (up the left side, and then left to right just below the navel).
Additionally, I recommend changing positions while retaining the coffee. After a few minutes turn over onto your back, a few minutes later switch to your left side before evacuating your bowels.

The effects of a coffee enema are different than a saline enema. The most important difference between a saline enema and a coffee enema is the presence of caffeine in the coffee. Caffeine, theophylline and theobromine, combine to stimulate the relaxation of smooth muscles causing dilatation of blood vessels and bile ducts. The effects of having a coffee enema are not the same as drinking coffee. The veins of the anus are very close to the surface of the tissue. The caffeine is therefore absorbed more quickly (and in higher concentration) than it is in when drinking coffee.

Coffee has a chemical makeup that is stimulative. The enzymes in coffee, known as palmitates, help the liver carry away the toxins in bile acid. The coffee is absorbed into the hemorrhoidal vein, then taken up to the liver by the portal vein. With the bile ducts dilated, bile carries toxins away to the gastro-intestinal tract. Simultaneously, peristaltic activity is encouraged because of the flooding of the lower colon. Thus, when the colon is evacuated, the toxins and bile are carried out of the body.


Recipe 3

Pour 4 cups of filtered or distilled water into a non-metal pot or saucepan.
Stir in 3/4 cup of finely ground organic coffee from a health store and make sure it is mixed well in the water. Then, bring to a boil and boil for 3 to 5 minutes while stirring occasionally.

Reduce from heat and cover pot or saucepan with lid and let simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
Remove from stove element and let coffee enema cool down to room temperature.
Strain coffee through fine sieve or coffee filter to remove as many coffee grinds as possible.

Because of the boiling process, some of the water evaporated, so add plain filtered or distilled water to the coffee to bring it up to 4 full cups.

Store the coffee in a sealed container and keep refrigerated.

Coffee enema will normally stay good for 4 to 5 days and should be used within that time for optimum benefits.

Coffee Enema Setup:

In a large measuring container (at least 4 cup size):
Pour 1 cup of the concentrated organic coffee from the container in the fridge.
Add 3 cups of filtered or distilled water to make 4 cups total.
Pour diluted coffee into a saucepan and heat it until it is lukewarm.

Immediately pour it into the bucket or bag and infuse right away so it doesn't get too cool. In whichever way is most comfortable (kneeling, squatting or laying down) gently insert tube tip into the rectum for at least 4 inches if possible.

You can lubricate it with olive oil for easier insertion.

If there is rectal bleeding or severe pain or swelling, it is risky to force the tube, as this may aggravate the problem or even perforate the bowel wall. So, it is best to wait until any bleeding or severe discomfort passes before doing an enema.

It is best to place the bag bucket about 18 inches to 2 feet above floor level so gravity will send the coffee downward to your colon. Any higher may result in too fast a flow and cause abdominal cramping and gas. If the bucket is too low then the flow will be too slow. Each person has a different preference. Just make sure the level of the bag bucket is best for your particular comfort and needs.

After the tube is inserted as far as is comfortable, lay down on your Left Side and allow the lukewarm coffee to enter your colon.

Energy

It has long been recognized that nutrition plays a role in cell vibration, energy production and in good health.

ShopFreeMart Sugar-D helps open the receptor sites in the cells allowing insulin to get inside of the once blocked cells in order to convert glucose to energy. It also provides the necessary minerals in their proper form to convert the glucose to energy.

Copper is noted for reducing chronic fatigue and increasing metabolism, Oxygen levels in the blood, vitality, mental alertness, longevity and energy, just to name a few. I have never felt so much natural energy since taking the ShopFreeMart PureCopper. In fact, I don't remember a time in my entire life when I felt this good. I have a clarity of mind, body and spirit that I have never known before. This is how I think I should have felt my entire life.

People who sleep fewer hours seem to prefer eating foods that are higher in calories and carbohydrates, which can lead to overeating, weight gain, and obesity over time. Hormones that are released during sleep control appetite and the body's use of energy. For example, insulin controls the rise and fall of blood sugar levels during sleep. People who don't get enough sleep have insulin and blood sugar levels that are similar to those in people who are likely to have diabetes. Getting more sleep may be a factor in having plenty of energy.

If you have trouble sleeping, take ShopFreeMart PureMag and Vitalize just before going to bed and put a ShopFreeMart Nano Card under your pillow and you will probably start sleeping better than you ever remember.

Endometriosis

Endometriosis can be a very nasty inflammatory response in and around the uterus, through the fallopian tubes, and even on the ovaries. It causes very painful menstruation and stabbing pains that come and go on an irregular basis.

Take 2-3 droppers of PureSilver 3x daily. It can also be used as a douche by mixing 6 droppers of ShopFreeMart PureSilver to two ounces of purified water and use a syringe to inject the mixture intravaginally with buttocks elevated and rolling from side to side, holding it for 12 minutes, and then releasing. This will kill bacteria and viruses in and around the cervix.

Epilepsy

People who have Epilepsy are probably lacking magnesium, boron and perhaps other nutrients. I would recommend the following supplements for anyone with this condition. ShopFreeMart Vitalize, which contains 22 amino acids plus vitamin B12 is perhaps my first choice, followed by PureMag. Next would be ShopFreeMart D-Cal and Siaga, and of course, Hydration Drops for good hydration.

I personally was having some night seizures where I was biting my tongue. This was a bit scary for even myself, but withing 2-weeks of starting on ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops, PureMag, D-Cal, Siaga and Vitalize, I was no longer biting my tongue in my sleep.

Epstein-Barr Virus

Epstein-Barr virus causes mononucleosis and chronic fatigue syndrome. Pure Silver has the ability to destroy viruses. Take 1 dropper of ShopFreeMart PureSilver every hour (at least 8x for six days. Then take a 1 or more droppers 3x daily for maintenance. Also use topically as needed.

ShopFreeMart and Immunize may also have a profound effect upon this virus due to their ability to strenghen the body's own ability to fight the Epstein-Barr virus.

Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile Dysfunction (ED) has the same root as virtually every other disease. Petrochemicals mimic estrogen and in almost every case, someone suffering from ED has high levels of estrogen and low levels of testoserone. See BPA's

ShopFreeMart Vitalize, D-Cal, PureGold, PureMag, PureCopper and are the products that I recommend for people suffering from ED. ShopFreeMart Vitalize and D-Cal, especially helps to balance hormones in both men and women, often increasing sexual desire and stamina.

ShopFreeMart Sugar-D could also play an important role with helping ED. Sugar-D tends to naturally increase blood flow to every part of the body including the penis, which is one of the main causes of ED.

Zinc is an important mineral to consider when suffering from ED. Zinc is the main mineral that is lost through ejaculation. ShopFreeMart will eventually have an exceptional zinc supplement.

Personally, after using all of the ShopFreeMart products for about two months, my erections are now spontaneous and harder like when I was much younger.

Starting perhaps 8 years ago, I noticed a gradual decline in my ability to get an erection and on a few occasions I was unable to perform at all.

ShopFreeMart products do not act as a stimulant, they simply provide nutrients that you are likely to be lacking, which provide the natural functions of the body, including the reproductive organs.

Environmental Causes of ED

I received an email from a lady who was ranting about a bad date that she had. She was wondering what happened to all of the "real" men in the world. Her observation that today, not only do men "appear" more feminine, but in reality they are more feminine, many even developing what she called "man-boobs". This is a bit of a diversion from my normal method of reporting, but I think you will find the following information valuable if you know someone who is suffering from ED or masculine femininity. 

"Wow, I sent out a kind of crazy rant the other day about a bad date I'd had."

I was asking, what in the world happened to all the REAL MEN in this country?

Well, I got a TON of great emails from fans all around the world!

There are a lot of good guys are out there, it turns out!

And some guys definitely had some ideas about what's happened in this country that have made men less "manly"."

(Skipping some irrelevant chatter.)

"One response to my question REALLY made me think.

For example, this is from Will in Des Moines, IA:

"I totally agree with you. I am in my late 50s and I have to say today's men are very sorry indeed. As I see it, there's a lot of causes for this, but the main reason that men today are so sadly lacking in the "masculine" department is the chemicals that are found in much of the plastics we consume as a society.

Many people haven't heard of it, but's a chemical called "BPA" and it depletes men of testosterone, which is the male hormone for "manliness." It also makes men have too much estrogen, which is the female hormone. Consequently, it makes the men more feminine, and it can even lower your sperm count! I believe this the real reason for so many girly-men like the one you went out with the other night.

I'm not sure what can be done about this problem apart from moving out into the wilderness and never using plastics again, but in today's society thats nearly impossible. I'm truly fearful of the problems our younger generation will face in the future because of this. Sorry to hear you had such a rotten date, best of luck in the future." (Names omitted - now her response to BPAs)

"Well, this kind of took me by surprise.

I had never heard of "BPAs" before I read this, but afterward, I became alarmed!

What if this really was the cause of today's problem with wimpy men like my PATHETIC date?

So, I looked into it online.

It turns out, what (name omitted) was saying was 100% correct!

There is a TON of research that links the chemicals found in hundreds of household objects with lower testosterone levels in men!

Testosterone, as you may know, is the hormone responsible for making a man manly and tough.

But did you know that up to 40% of middle aged men suffer from low testosterone levels? This drop is normal for most men as they age - similar to how women's estrogen levels dip when they hit menopause.

But for other men, their Testosterone levels can dip even lower, causing symptoms such as fatigue, mood swings, erectile dysfunctions, hair loss, low energy and a lot of other very common problems!

In fact, you could be suffering from low levels of testosterone and not even know it! You may just think your low energy or low sex drive is normal.

It turns out, over the last 50 years researchers have found a trend of declining testosterone rates in this country!

And with it, lower sperm counts in men, and a rise in genital birth defects in boys.

Sad, right?!

I never knew about any of this, but it started to make sense.

I really started getting obsessed with this! I made myself a strong pot of coffee and kept reading.

And what I found next REALLY shocked me.

Other research has found that chemicals found in many plastic products including water bottles and packaging used for food can leach into your food or water and get into your body.

There, they can sap you of your male hormone (testosterone) and raise levels of your female hormone (estrogen).

The worst (and most common) of these chemicals are BPAs (bisphenol A).

These chemicals are so commonplace, they're called "everywhere chemicals".

They're in every plastic bottle of water or soda you can drink. They're in household items made of plastic such as deodorants. And they are even found in baby bottles and pacifiers!

Here is a partial list of what BPA is found in:

Plastic water bottles & every other plastic beverage container
Lining of our water pipes
Inside coating of almost every food & beverage can
Deodorants & other skin-care products
Lining of sales receipts
Movie and airline tickets
Sports equipment
Medical devices & dental fillings
Eyeglass lenses
Surface of CDs and DVDs

Basically, they are unavoidable.

And like I said, scientists have recently discovered that BPAs can leach from these plastic containers into the food and water you consume. Especially when the containers are heated or exposed to the sun.

(Which is why you should NEVER drink a bottle of water that has been heated by the sun! However, even then it's still nearly impossible to prevent exposure to these chemicals. One study found that most people in the US have some amount of BPAs in their urine.)

Here's why they're so bad for you:

BPAs are very similar chemically to estrogen.

Just listen to this quote from a leading researcher of this subject, Dr. Hugh Taylor, MD, of Yale University.

He said, "BPA looks like estrogen. By itself it is a very weak estrogen."

Crazy, right??

This is why exposure to BPAs is much worse for men than it is for women. Because women have lots of estrogen anyways, it doesn't make as much of a difference in their bodies when they get more of it.

But when men get more estrogen in their bodies. It throws their natural chemical balance off, and causes them to stop producing as much of their own male hormone, testosterone.

Making them more feminine in their minds AND bodies. In fact, because of this, many more men are now growing more womanly breasts!

Ask yourself if you know any guys with "man boobs", Yep, this is the reason why.

There's tons of research that proves all this,

One study from China, for example, showed that men working in a factory making BPAs had significantly lower levels of testosterone in their blood compared men working in a tap water facility.

And another one showed that lab rats exposed to BPAs had lower testosterone levels AND lower sperm counts than rats who were NOT exposed to it. The BPAs also gave them prostate problems.

There's a lot more studies just like these,

All you have to do is google "BPAs" and you'll see for yourself!

OK, I know.This all sounds very "science-y" and it's NOT the sort of thing I normally write about.

But the truth is, I've always had a bit of an interest in biology! =)

And trust me, this gets WAY more interesting.

Remember, we are exposed to these chemicals all the time. They're literally "Everywhere!"

In addition to BPAs, so many of these household plastics we use every day contain other chemicals called PHTHALATES.

Now, I can't even pronounce this word properly. But it turns out, these are just as bad as BPA!

Phthalates work by blocking testosterone, your male hormone for manliness. And check this out:

In male lab animals, exposure to phthalates caused low sperm counts, undescended testicles, and decreased testosterone production among other problems.

Human studies found the same thing . Exposure to BPAs results in lower testosterone for men.

A 2014 study at the University of Michigan found that adult men and young boys exposed to phthalates have reduced levels of testosterone in their blood compared to those who haven't been exposed as much . By as much as 34% in some cases!!

Here's a quote from the main researcher of this study - John Meeker, an environmental health science professor at the University of Michigan School of Public Health.

"We found that reduced levels of circulating testosterone were associated with increased phthalate exposure in several key populations, including boys ages 6-12, and men and women ages 40-60.This may have important public health implications, since low testosterone levels in young boys can negatively impact reproductive development, and in middle age can impair sexual function, libido, energy, cognitive function and bone health in men and women."

Wow! This is WAY bigger than I ever thought.

BPAs and phthalates.

These plastics have only become widespread in America over the past 30-40 years.

And that's exactly when men have started to forget how to be men!

There HAS to be a connection.

The science is really just now starting to show how bad this stuff is for you

Gosh, when I thought about all the times I saw a guy drinking out of a water bottle

Or eating something out of a can. Even putting on deodorant.

I started to feel SOOO BAD!

And I realized how it's really not even the fault of men these days for not knowing how to act around a woman.

Or for having low energy, or lower sex drive. Or any kind of sexual problems at all.

It's because of the environment around them!

I just wish everyone knew the TRUTH about this stuff. Then maybe we could actually DO something about it.

I mean. What do you think?

Have you heard anything about these BPAs before??

And do you think it might be a real explanation for what's going on with men?

I'd love to hear your input.

I'm going to keep doing some research into this.

And if you find anything interesting about it online. Be sure to pass it on to me!

OK. Thanks for bearing with me on another strange rant. .

Until next time,"

(Name withheld)

I believe there is a lot of truth to this and it doesn't stop there. Hormones that are injected into animals that end up as part of our food chain are also a huge problem. GMO (genetically modified foods) that are now fed to animals and are now part of the staple diets for most humans living in the more developed countries today.

I don't have any ready made solutions to these problems. I do know that each individual needs to become as educated as they can and avoid every possible invasion of unnatural and ungodly chemicals into their bodies. 

Note: Since being on all of the ShopFreeMart products, I no longer have any ED. 

I do believe that ShopFreeMart Vitalize, D-Cal, PureGold and Hydration Drops may be the answer that many men who have been suffering from this problem have been looking for and if they can become aware of other factors like BPAs and limit their exposure to such things, it can only help in their quest to regain their manhood. This is a prime example of needing to know what causes a problem before there can be a solution.

Eye Health

Regular use of ShopFreeMart products has been shown to support eye health. ShopFreeMart PureCopper, Vitalize, Siaga and Sugar-D can help improve the health of your blood and the tiny blood vessels that carry oxygen and nutrients to your eyes.

One drop of ShopFreeMart PureSilver can be put in each eye at the first sign of any irritation or infection to kill any disease causing microbes you may have come into contact with.

Magnesium and Boron taken together help to keep calcium mobile, which may help prevent calcification of the lens of the eye. I personally use ShopFreeMart PureMag and D-Cal to supply these two important minerals.

This may sound sound distasteful, but fresh urine is one of the most soothing, refreshing and healing things that you can use to bathe the eyes. Look it up online and you will find that Murine is mare's urine.

Collect a small amount of fresh urine in a cup and fill an eye cup for washing your eyes. If you don't have an eye cup, fill the cup of your hand with urine over a sink and put your face down into your palm with your eye and blink several times. Don't worry if you get some on your face because fresh urine is perfectly steril and is also a good tonic for your skin. Many people make a frequent habit of washing their face, neck, hands and arms with urine, although few of them are brave enough to admit it in public.

Orange and yellow vegetables like carrots and squash have important eye nutrients and should be a regular part of a healthy diet.

Aspartame is a major cause of eye diseases. We found that some physicians, who believed that they had a patient with retinopathy, in fact, had symptoms caused by Aspartame. (See Aspartame)

Eyes - Reduce Eyestrain

How to Reduce Eyestrain and Promote Optimal Vision - Dr. Ben Kim on Nov 12, 2009

This article outlines simple eye exercises and acupressure points that you can use to reduce eyestrain and support optimal vision.

To reduce eyestrain and experience optimal vision, two major requirements are as follows:

The six muscles that move each of your eyes need to be strong and relaxed.

You must have healthy blood flow to your eyes and to the muscles that control your eyes.

The six muscles that control all of your eye movements are as follows:

Lateral rectus - Primarily moves the eye outward, away from your nose.

Medial rectus - Primarily moves the eye inward, toward your nose.

Superior rectus - Primarily moves the eye upward.

Inferior rectus - Primarily moves the eye downward.

Superior oblique - Primarily rotates the top of the eye toward your nose.

Inferior oblique - Primarily rotates the top of the eye away from your nose.

Perhaps the single greatest reason why people in today's society suffer from chronic eyestrain and deteriorating vision is the amount of time that is spent staring at computer monitors and television screens.

Your eyes are designed to move regularly, and regular movement of your eyes is what promotes optimal blood flow and nerve function to your eyes and the six muscles that control your eye movements.

What follows are several simple eye exercises that you can do on a regular basis to keep your eyes and vision as healthy as possible:

Look as far to your right as possible for 3-5 seconds, then as far to your left as possible for 3-5 seconds. Rest for a few seconds, and then repeat this sequence several times.

Look as far up as possible for 3-5 seconds, then look as far down as possible for 3-5 seconds. Rest for a few seconds, and then repeat this sequence several times.

Slowly roll your eyes in a circle, first clockwise, then counter-clockwise. Rest for a few seconds, and then repeat this sequence several times. Be sure to roll slowly - it should take at least 3 seconds for you to roll your eyes in a full circle.

Hold a pen in front of you, about an arm's length away. Focus your vision on the tip of your pen for 3-5 seconds, and then shift the focus of your vision to an object that is farther away for 3-5 seconds; the greater the distance between your pen and the distant object, the better. If you are indoors, look out a window to find a distant object to focus your vision on. Repeat this sequence of going back and forth between your pen and a distant object several times.

Just for interest's sake, this exercise is used by some professional baseball players to optimize visual acuity, which is essential for the hand-eye coordination that is needed to play pro ball.

Eyes - Restore Eyesight

Restoring Your I-sight. How the Soul Unites the Senses in Healthy Seeing

Much of medical science deals strictly with the body, while denying - or at least largely relegating to the background - our inner soul essence. This view is particularly prevalent in conventional vision treatment where eyesight is considered to be a camera-like process which creates an image that's either in or out of focus. Such a one-tiered approach results in a lopsided notion of what is normal. Eyeglasses are so commonplace in our culture, they're considered virtually natural extensions of the human anatomy. People seeing clearly with their own eyes are becoming a rare breed.

In more recent years, the quest for a novel approach to vision treatment took a technological leap with the advent of refractive eye surgery, also known as laser eye surgery, or by the acronym of LASIK, a popular procedure. In a way, this technology is turning full circle back to Mother Nature's design, touting 20/20 vision (or very close to it) with a natural appearance and no fuss. According to the industry, these purported outcomes involve minimal risk and have high patient satisfaction rates.

However, more cases of patients with negative outcomes - ranging in scale from continual annoying symptoms to disabling complications and worsening eyesight - are coming to the forefront in the media and on the Internet. Tragically, a few cases have ended in suicides.

The furor prompted the US Federal Drug Administration (FDA) last year to publicly hear statements from affected patients. The FDA panel reiterated that refractive eye surgery, like any surgery, has its risks but has an excellent overall track record. Nevertheless, to bolster the safeguards, they recommended enhanced patient screening methods and further post-operative studies by the industry. (Interestingly, the eye doctor who chaired the FDA panel wears glasses. Although she regularly performs refractive eye surgery, she chooses not to undergo the procedure herself, citing one of the reasons as an aversion to any level of risk.)

Lost amid the allure and debates over technological treatments is an obscure alternative called natural vision improvement (NVI). As the name implies, it's a more nature-centered approach, a holistic mind-body method that seeks to reverse an imbalance induced by a response to stress. It introduces a psychological component, counter to most prevailing notions that the physical eyes somehow just "go bad" with no hope of improving. For those attuned to esoteric traditions - or the "Perennial Philosophy" as writer Aldous Huxley put it - the psyche is simply a secular name for the soul.

Figure 1 - The sense of color in vision. The spectrum in the rainbow.

To understand how NVI succeeds on the personal soul level, the work of spiritual scientist Rudolf Steiner offers some insights. While embodied within a physical form, our soul is said to be a link between the "lower" physical world and the "higher" world of the spirit in which we simultaneously participate. Steiner further suggested that a portion called the sentient soul is responsible for our experience of sensation. He also distinguished between the terms perception and sensation; perception comes first and is fleeting, but the sensation which follows lasts.

When external light reaches us, the eyes initially register a myriad of perceptions from our environment. Then something lights up in the sentient soul when certain perceptions are filtered and sensations come alive with personal vividness and quality. For example, when you behold a red object with your eyes, you initially perceive the color. However, this color perception ceases once you look away, but the sensation that it makes upon you continues to linger in your soul. It's a lasting impression that may be later recalled, whether to ponder its meaning and significance or to rekindle nostalgic sentiments and feelings.

Because our sensations illuminate internally in a unique and private way, Steiner contended that this soul activity is not a mere brain process. Science can describe the various light, chemical and nerve stimuli along the chain from the eye retina to the brain, but he noted that nowhere can our actual sensations be found in this chain. The sentient soul is said to also partake in the intrinsically private activities of feelings, emotions, drives and instincts, as well as willing, where our soul flows outward through actions.

Such a perspective of soul activity aligns with other researchers' distinctions of mind and brain. Neurophysiologist Wilder Penfield once determined that no amount of electronic probing in the various areas of the brain would elicit a person to believe or decide. He concluded that the mind seems to work independently of the brain, analogous to a computer programmer acting independently of the firings within the computer. Penfield suggested that the mind has its own energy that is different from the neurons that travel the pathways within the brain.

Michael Polanyi, philosopher of science and social science, arrived at the same conclusion when he stated that thoughts and neural processes are two completely different things.

Religious author Huston Smith concurs, suggesting "the brain breathes mind like the lungs breathe air."

We typically think of having five senses - sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch - with sight generally considered to be the most important in its ability to perceive shades of lightness and different colors. However, Steiner recognized that we have at least seven more than these basic senses. By the term sense, he meant a perception which provides us with immediate information without the involvement of a thought process. One of the additional senses he noted was what he called movement, what is nowadays termed proprioception. Movement is that special sense which indicates whether we're still or moving, providing direct feedback where our joints, tendons and muscles are in space.

Steiner also recognized how the various senses work together, not in isolation. Although each sense may be categorized for the sake of definitions, our soul reunites the separate perceptions into a unified whole that provides coherent inner meaning. Of particular note, he was well aware that vision encompasses more than the sense of sight. In 1919, he knew the important role that the sense of movement plays in visual sensation.

We nearly always see things so that when they give the colors to us, they also show us the boundaries of colors, namely, lines and forms. We are not normally aware of how we perceive when we perceive color and form at the same time. At first you see only the color through the specific activity of the eye (sense of sight). You see the circular form when you subconsciously use the sense of movement and unconsciously make a circular movement. When the circle you have apprehended through your sense of movement rises to cognition, it is then joined with the perceived color.

You take the form out of your entire body when you appeal to the sense of movement spread out over your entire body. Today, official science is not at all interested in such a refined way of observation, so it does not distinguish between seeing color and perceiving form with the help of the sense of movement. In the future however, we will not be able to educate with such confusion. How will it be possible to educate human seeing if we do not know that the whole human being participates in seeing through the sense of movement?

Decades later, Steiner's comments appear to have been validated by Alfred Yarbus, a psychologist who studied the eye movements of people looking at natural objects and scenes. In the 1950s and 1960s, he recorded the rapid saccadic eye movements that occur within milliseconds and demonstrated with remarkable images how the eyes subconsciously scan forms and outlines with incredible speed.

Steiner's observations are also quite extraordinary when related to NVI fundamentals of proper vision. William Bates was an eye doctor who broke from the mold of orthodox teachings and single-handedly established the field of NVI back in the early 1900s. Two of Bates' guiding fundamentals are what he called shifting and apparent movement (also called the swing), both which involve our sense of movement.

The eyes, which move by different sets of surrounding muscles, must continually shift from point to point to prevent the strain of fixation. Otherwise, the subconscious saccadic movements become sluggish and vision begins to blur within seconds. It's analogous to grasping a heavy object in your hand and holding it tightly in an extended arm position. The muscle strain cannot be held long before you lose your hold and drop the object. If we fixate for too long in an attempt to "hold" a point in our sight with intense concentration, the effort backfires and we lose the clarity of sight.

As for oppositional movement, stationary objects in our peripheral field of vision must have the appearance of moving in an opposing direction. This swing is a natural consequence of the first fundamental, the shift.

Bates explains the illusion of the swing: "Your head and eyes are moving all day long. Imagine that stationary objects are moving in the direction opposite to the movement of your head and eyes. When you walk about the room or on the street, notice that the floor or pavement seems to come toward you, while objects on either side appear to move in the direction opposite to the movement of your body."

If one attempts to stop this illusion of oppositional movement, Bates claimed it caused vertigo or dizziness. That's because our sense of balance also comes into play for effective vision. Coordinated body movements and eye movements depend on good balance, controlled by the organs in the inner ears.

In more recent years, the role of movement and balance in visual perception has been recognized in a specialty field called developmental or behavioral optometry. They have made the connection between visual difficulties, mental development, and emotional behavior, with such problems as dyslexia, slow reading and poor comprehension, ADHD and juvenile delinquency. Some children have difficulty reuniting the individual senses as a unified whole, causing a jumbled imbalance of sensations, thoughts and emotions.

The importance of training which integrates the senses with whole-body movements is a hallmark of this specialized field of optometry. The training typically incorporates bouncing on the trampoline with rhythmic arm and hand movements and visual interaction with special wall charts. Or the child could be instructed to call out answers to rapid-fire mental tasks  like mathematics or spelling  while jumping on the trampoline. Balance beams are also used in combination with sensory, physical and mental tasks.

In a separate field of study, psychiatrist Harold Levinson treated thousands of cases of learning disabilities and phobias and discovered a common physical correlation. Over 90 percent of his patients who were dyslexic or phobic had a malfunction of the inner-ear system. These more recent findings validate what Steiner suggested back in his day: mental disorders are linked to physiological disorders.

"But one will find over and again," he wrote, "that especially in so-called mental illness  which actually has been, as such, incorrectly named  physical processes of illness are present in a hidden way somewhere. Before one wants to meddle with mental illness, one ought actually, with the proper diagnosis, to determine which physical organ is involved in the illness." Thinking, feeling, and willing  soul activities which follow from our senses  are all interrelated and interdependent.

In our highly technological era, we are intently centered on the physical realm, bombarded with sense data from the external environment. Such sensory overload may induce responses in an individual's soul, such as fear and anxiety, while causing overconcentration and staring. The net result can lead to a habitual strain pattern that restricts movement and negatively impacts the healthy functioning of the eye-focusing muscles. School age children are especially prone to such problems and begin to develop vision problems early as a result.

One of the most fascinating aspects of improving eyesight naturally is a "flash" of near perfect vision that spontaneously occurs from time to time. I experienced flashes several times prior to having any knowledge of the phenomenon. They appear very early in the vision improvement process for many people, even for those with a high degree of initial blur. I liken the experience to a flash of inspiration or intuition from the spiritual realm, a Divine Perfection pouring into the soul, reminding the eyes how to see clearly again without strain. It's also a reminder to step back from the stressful demands of a society fixated on material ends and become more in touch with our higher spiritual nature.

Quantum physicist Arthur Zajonc chronicled the scientific study of light and visual optics from the time of the early Greek philosophers to our current age and laments at the gradual demise of artistic and spiritual insights in the endeavor. Throughout the centuries, Plato's light of the soul in visual perception was eventually excised by science to the point we are today a pure neurophysical model even though the nature of light is as enigmatic as ever.

We've become so steeped in material pursuits that we've "lost sight" of the spiritual side. If physical light is the counterpart of spiritual light, perhaps the visual blur that's endemic to modern culture is a manifestation of spiritual myopia?

Observe the symmetry in the word "eye" itself. I view it as a symbol of our threefold nature. One "e" represents the exoteric or physical realm, while the other "e" represents the esoteric or spiritual realm. The "y" in between is the soul with three branches, two linking body and spirit, while the third points to the "I" (pronounced the same as "eye") that is the center of our soul. Window of the soul, indeed!

Example - The Best Teacher

THE SERMONS WE SEE ~ Jack Suttles

I'd rather see a sermon than hear one any day
I'd rather one should walk with me than merely tell the way
The eye is a better pupil and more willing than the ear
Fine counsel is confusing but examples are always clear

And the best of all the preachers are the men who live their creeds
For to see good deeds in action is what everybody needs
I soon can learn to do it, if you'll show me how it's done
I can watch yours hands in action but your tongue too fast may run

The lecture you deliver may be very wise and true
But I'd rather get my lessons by observing what you do
There's no misunderstanding how you act and how you give
A good man teaches many - we believe what others live

Who stands with men of honor, holds his honor bold
One deed of kindness seen, is worth fifty that are told
Right living speaks a language which to everyone is clear
Who honors God and loves fellow man, never needs his conscience fear

Eloquent words may charm me, but still I have to say
I'd rather see a sermon, than to hear one any day

True Story:

His name is Bill. He had wild hair, wore a T-shirt with holes in it, jeans, and no shoes. This was literally his wardrobe for his entire four years of college.

He was brilliant, quite profound and very, very bright. He became a Christian while attending college.

Across the street from the campus is a well-dressed, very conservative church. They want to develop a ministry to the students but are not sure how to go about it.

One day Bill decides to go there. He walks in with no shoes, jeans, his T-shirt, and wild hair. The service has already started and so Bill starts down the aisle looking for a seat. The church is completely packed and he can't find a seat. By now people are really looking a bit uncomfortable, but no one says anything.

Bill gets closer and closer and closer to the pulpit, and when he realizes there are no seats, he just squats down right on the carpet. By now the people are really uptight, and the tension in the air is thick.

About this time, the minister realizes that from way at the back of the church, a Deacon is slowly making his way toward Bill.

Now the Deacon is in his eighties, silver-gray hair and a three-piece suit; a godly man, very elegant, very dignified, very courtly. He walks with a cane, and as he starts walking toward this boy, everyone is saying to themselves, you can't blame him for what he's going to do. How can you expect a man of his age and of his background to understand some college kid on the floor?

It takes a long time for the man to reach the boy. The church is utterly silent except for the clicking of the man's cane. All eyes are focused on him. You can't even hear anyone breathing. The minister can't even preach the sermon until the deacon does what he has to do.

And now they see this elderly man drop his cane on the floor. With great difficulty, he lowers himself and sits down next to Bill and worships with him so he won't be alone. Everyone chokes up with emotion.

When the minister gains control, he says, "What I'm about to preach, you will never remember. What you have just seen, you will never forget."

"Be careful how you act. You may be the only Bible that many people will ever read!"

I asked the Lord to bless you as I prayed for you today,

To guide you and protect you as you go along your way.

His love is always with you, His promises are true,

And when we give Him all our cares, we know He'll see us through.

What is Faith?

by John Austin

You haven't been told the whole truth about what it takes to be successful in life and today I am going to share with you how to have everything in life that you want, including perfect health, loving relationships and a thriving and profitable business.

Believing in the power of faith and wanting to receive the supernatural favor of God in my life, I began reading the Bible to learn more about faith and how to make it work. What I found are four simple steps that will guarantee financial abundance, perfect health and loving relationships for anyone who gets serious about using them.

I wondered why so few people had really unlocked the power of faith, then I read where most people have their spiritual ears closed and Christ said that he spoke in parables so that those who don't have spiritual ears wouldn't hear and wouldn't understand.

This sounds a bit contradictory, but the truth is that God has some things that are so important, so valuable and so powerful, that he has reserved them for those who have their spiritual ears open to hearing the truth.

One day a young man approached the Greek philosopher Socrates and said, I come to you for knowledge. Socrates took the young man down to the sea and dunked him under the water. When he let the young man up for air, Socrates asked him to repeat what he wanted. 'Knowledge, O great one,' he sputtered. Socrates put him under the water again and after repeated dunkings the philosopher asked, 'What do you want?' The young man finally gasped, 'Air. I want air!' 'Good,' answered Socrates. 'Now, when you want knowledge as much as you wanted air, you shall have it.'

Faith does not come like a lightning bolt from heaven. It does not come by dancing, shouting or waving your arms and it does not come from feeling sorry for yourself. You must first desire faith, and you must ask God to open your spiritual ears so that you can understand what you are about to hear.

You may have asked, 'what is faith?' You may have even prayed to better understand faith and somebody told you about this website. That's often how prayers are answered.

Faith comes by hearing the word and if you keep an open mind, it is planted like a seed in your heart and the same way that seeds must be watered in order to germinate, faith has to be exercised daily if you want it to grow strong like a tree.

Luke 13:19 says, The kingdom of God is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it. And Matt 17:20 says, if ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

We are going to do some simple Algebra here so we can better understand what the scripture really says and if you haven't already figured it out, the scripture is talking about the same "mustard seed" in both verses.

So if the kingdom of God is likened to a mustard seed and faith is also likened to the "same" mustard seed, then the kingdom of God and faith are one and the same thing.

Let's look a little deeper. In Matthew chapter 6: 31-33 we read, "Therefore take no thought saying, What shall we eat? Or, What shall we drink? Or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; (which means right way of thinking) and all these things shall be added unto you." If we can take this literally, then by seeking to understand and use faith, or the keys of the kingdom, you can have all of your needs supplied.

Then in Matthew 21:22 it says, And all things ye shall ask in faith believing, ye shall receive. Look how consistent this is. All things ye shall ask in faith believing ye "shall" receive. There can only be two conclusions made from these quotations; one, they are not true, or two, we are not understanding how to ask in faith believing and therefore we are not receiving. 

However, believing that God cannot lie, then I surmised that faith and the kingdom spoken of in these verses are one and the same, because one can either seek the kingdom or they can ask in faith believing to have all of the good things of life. So we learn the same thing from four separate verses; that the kingdom of God and asking with faith are really one and the same thing;  not two. For me this was an important bridge to my understanding because up until that point, I felt like I was trying to arrive at two separate destinations simultaneously. 

As a young family man I lacked the necessary money to enjoy life to its fullest and I was tired of working around the clock and not being able to spend quality time with my family and believing that there is a supernatural source of supply where all good things could flow unto me, I wanted to learn how to turn it on and tap into it.

Wallace D Wattles in the first chapter of his book the Science of Getting Rich said.

"WHATEVER MAY BE SAID IN PRAISE OF POVERTY, the fact remains that it is not possible to live a really complete life unless one is rich."

"No one can rise to his greatest possible height in talent or soul development unless he has plenty of money, for to unfold the soul and to develop talent, he must have many things to use and these require money to buy them with."

"The purpose of nature is the advancement and unfoldment of life and everyone should have all that can contribute to the power, elegance, beauty and richness of life. To be content with less is sinful."

"The person who owns all he wants for the living of all the life he is capable of living is rich and no person can have all he wants without plenty of money."

"To understand the science of getting rich is therefore the most essential of all knowledge on the physical plane."

"There are three motives for which we live: We live for the body, we live for the mind and we live for the soul. No one of these is better or holier than the others; all alike are desirable and no one of the three - body, mind or soul - can live fully if one of the others is cut short of its full life and expression."

"It is not right or noble to live only for the soul and deny mind or body and it is wrong to live for the intellect and deny body or soul."

No one can be truly happy or satisfied unless his body is living fully in its every function and unless the same is true of his mind and his soul."

"A person cannot live fully in body without good nutrition, comfortable clothing, warm shelter and without freedom from excessive toil. Rest and recreation are also necessary to his physical life."

"One cannot live fully in mind without books and time to study them, without opportunity for travel and observation or without intellectual companionship, objects of art and things of beauty he is capable of using and appreciating."

"To achieve fullness in soul a person must have love, and love is denied fullest expression by poverty. A person's highest happiness is found in the bestowal of benefits on those he loves. The person who has nothing to give cannot fully fill his space as a spouse, as a parent, as a citizen or as a human being."

"It is perfectly right that you should desire to be rich, for you can render to God and humanity no greater service than to become the most you can be."

I believe that God wants us to reach our fullest potential. We have just learned that it is impossible to experience a fullness of joy and fully develop in any of these three areas without plenty of time and money. The good news is that we can have "everything" in life, that we ask for in faith believing. Faith is available to everyone and it grows stronger through daily practice, the same as muscles that are regularly exercised.

However, if you believe that God doesn't want you to be rich, you must shed yourself of this false idea and most false ideas have been ingrained in us since childhood.

For example, you've probably heard that it is hard for a rich man to get into heaven. What they didn't tell you is that it is harder for a poor man, because without faith it is impossible to get into heaven and rich people tend to have more faith than poor people.

So let's explore the principles of faith, because with faith, you can build yourself a thriving  business and in doing so you can help lift up a lot of people that are struggling with their faith, their health and their finances. With strong faith, you might even find your way into the pearly gates if that is what you seek.

The four steps are first learning the art of gratitude, then creating a clear vision of what you want, training the heart to think correctly and training the tongue to speak correctly without doubting.

So let's take these one at a time so we can see how each step is important toward helping you acquire the kind of faith that will bring you everything you want in life. Attitude determines altitude. Once you fully understand how faith works, you will begin to realize that you created 100% of the situation you are currently experiencing. You will also know that if you don't like what you have created, you now have the power to change it.

It is impossible to have faith when you are feeling ungrateful about anything, so I suggest that you make a list of things for which you are grateful. This list should eventually include all of your problems because problems are an opportunity for you to exercise faith. If you didn't have problems to solve or goals to meet, you would never have excuse or reason to exercise faith and without faith you cannot please God. 

God commanded us to be grateful in all things; but it is not because he is egotistical or selfish. God does not need our gratitude. He gave this commandment for our benefit, not his. Gratitude is the "power" that turns your wishes into reality. Gratitude is the "power" of creation. The same as you might tell a son or daughter to do something they don't see the benefit of doing, but because of your life experiences, you know what is best for them and can see the final result of them doing a certain thing. God certainly knows better than we do what is for our best good and he wants us to be grateful because it is the attitude of gratitude that puts us in the driver's seat of the "create anything you want machine."

I also rest in the fact that all things work for good to those who love the Lord, including those things that may cause me to struggle emotionally, physically and spiritually. For this reason I am thankful for those experiences, because I know that everything I am experiencing at every moment in my life is working for my best good. I also recognize each problem as a reason to exercise faith as the method to overcome the adversities in life. 

Problems are opportunities to do the right thing. I am thankful for the opportunity to overcome and I can overcome all things, and do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me, and to God be all the glory, for He has made me more than an overcomer. And the best way to overcome anything is through the power of faith. Problems are literally opportunities to exercise faith.

God has commanded that I be thankful in all things. It is easy to be grateful for the roses in life, but only people who are spiritually mature can appreciate the thorns.

"He who is thankful in all things shall be made glorious and the things of this earth shall be added a hundred fold yea more."

Thank You Lord for every challenge that causes me to reach out and look up and ask, "How can I more fully partake of thy supernatural favor and all of the good things that You have prepared for me?"

I am thankful to be in the place where all good things flow unto me easily, quickly and abundantly. I am thankful for the supernatural favor of God in every area of my life and in all that I do. I am thankful - I am thankful - I am thankful - Thank You Lord!

We should be thankful in all things including those things we do not yet have. Instead of saying, "Lord, heal me" you might say, "Thank you Lord that I am healed." Words of gratitude are often times a greater demonstration of faith than words of petition.

Gratitude puts a person into a frame of mind where faith can exist. A person who whines or complains about his circumstances cannot be filled with faith and Psalms 100:4 tells us that only through thanksgiving and praise can we enter into the "gates" of the kingdom. We have just learned that the Kingdom is the same as Faith, so now we know how to get started using faith; with gratitude we enter the gates of faith. 

Step number two is vision - getting clear on what you really want. Where you are today, you were on your way there yesterday. If you are not happy with where you are right now, then your vision of where you were going was not clear enough. Most people however are wondering "how they arrived" at the circumstances they are now in rather than recognizing they are responsible and therefore can create a new and different reality just as easily.

MANY PEOPLE fail to get what they want, only because they themselves have only a vague and misty concept of the things they want to have or do. You must form a clear and definite mental picture of what you want.

Hebrews 11:1 tells us that Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the "evidence" of things not seen. 

If you wanted to build a new home you would no doubt hire an architect to create for you a blueprint. Is not the blueprint the "evidence" of a house that you cannot yet see, and furthermore, if the architect fails to draw in the doors and windows exactly as you want them, are you going to be happy living in the house when it is built? If you expect to be happy when you finally receive what you are asking for, your plan or vision of what you want must be detailed, clear and complete. In fact, the more clear and definite you make your picture and the more you dwell upon it, bringing out all its delightful details, the faster it will be manifested.

The scripture says that before God begins anything, he always finishes it first. In other words God even has a vision of the completed project before he begins it. You too can create a vision of what you want. That way, before you even begin a project, you will know what the end result is going to be and you will not get discouraged when you've had a bad day, because you will realize that what you are going through today is only temporary and you will know what is coming to you because you have seen a vision of the end result. 

Everything in the universe is made up of photons of light. Photons then are the "substance" of things hoped for and they exists everywhere. When they dance around in random orbit, they are not tangible, but they are intelligent and can form themselves into anything that exists.

What we now know from quantum physics is that the human heart has an aura or energy field that projects itself outside of the human body and is measurable for up to a 30-foot radius around the body. Scientist believe however that this energy field extends to infinity and they have discovered that photons of light are obedient to the human heart. This fact would help to explain the scripture in Proverbs 23:7 which says "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." Photons apparently are commanded by God to be obedient to the heart thoughts of mankind and create whatever the heart of man dictates.

Some people have made vision boards and posted pictures as a reminder of what they want; for example a new car, house, etc. They test-drive the new car, they attend an open house, and they imagine living in the house or they memorize the smell of the leather seats and the feeling they get when driving the new car. They can also imagine how they would feel if that same car was parked in their garage or driveway. The clearer that you make your vision the faster you will realize it.

I had a vision of a business opportunity that I could be passionate about and a product or service that is truly a blessing or a necessity for every human being and which benefits everyone who takes advantage of it. I also wanted a product or service that was fairly priced. By carrying that vision and the feeling of having it, my desire eventually materialized.

I now have a vision of attracting people into my business who are both leaders and who want to become leaders; people who have a vision of building a passive retirement income and helping others do the same; people who have the mind and heart to serve others and who desire to help others find solutions to their health and money problems; people who are seeking a fullness of life with optimum health and plenty of money to enjoy life.

I see those people coming into my business and I also see people coming who don't yet have a clear vision of what they want, but who will use these steps of faith as a vehicle to create a clear vision of being successful in their own business. I see many people who are business builders coming into my organization and I also see a whole new wave of people who have never known about network marketing joining my organization.

When your vision is clear, the method will appear. You don't need to concern yourself with how to attract the right people into your business. People will call you and you will be inspired to talk to the right people at the right time. I have found that whatever I focus on begins to appear supernaturally as long as I follow these simple steps.

Wallace D. Wattles had a profound insight into the elements of faith and I would like to quote again from the Science of Getting Rich to help us better understand the next step.

"Nature is an inexhaustible storehouse of riches. Everything you see on earth is made from one original substance, out of which all things proceed. The universe was made out of it and ten thousand times more might still be made from it. A thought in this substance produces the thing that is imaged by the thought."

Original substance is alive with creative energy and it is constantly producing more forms. A person can form things in his thought, and by impressing his thought upon formless substance, can cause the thing he thinks about to be created. In order to do this; a person must pass from the competitive to the creative mind. He must form a clear mental picture of the things he wants. He must then do, with faith and purpose all that can be done each day, doing each separate thing in an efficient manner."

But having a mental picture is not sufficient to creating things using the power of faith. The trick to getting everything that you want is to get the thoughts of those things from your head to your heart. The heart is the "feeling" center of the body, so in step number three, we are really trying to cultivate the right feelings.

Fear carries the feeling of helplessness. To the contrary, faith is a peaceful, grateful feeling of knowing where you are going and a confidence and expectancy that the things you want are now coming to you. So how can you create the feeling of already having that which you are asking for?

You started out with a statement of gratitude. Gratitude IS the creative power that will bring you everything you wish for, like the genie in Aladdin's lamp. Being grateful puts you in a frame of mind that opens the faucet to the flow of all good things toward you.

Then you made a vision statement, clearly describing the things that you want to see show up in your life. This is like a blueprint for a new home. If the carpenters follow through with the plans, the house will materialize. 

Now you need to cultivate the feeling of having the things that you desire. The way you do that is by asking how would I feel if right now I were to receive exactly and completely the thing or things that I want?

Here is an example. "How does it feel to have hundreds of quality, mature people who are serious about improving their own lives and who love to help others, joining your business?" Or, if you have debts to pay, "How does it feel to have all of my debts paid and have plenty of money to do all the things that I want?" Or, "How does it feel to have a faithful companion that loves, honors and respects me and who also seeks to serve God?"

You may also consider using these steps for spiritual things. For example, the Bible says, "This is life eternal to know God." And it also says, "Not everyone who says Lord, Lord will enter" into eternal life. Therefore, there is "a particular manner" in which you need to "know" God in order to inherit eternal life.

You might then make a vision statement saying, "I know God in the manner required to obtain eternal life." Then continue to ask, "How does it feel to know God in the manner that is required for eternal life."

The more you ask "how does it feel" and the more you practice experiencing the feelings you would have if your wish were granted today, the faster you will realize your desires.

You can use these steps of faith to have everything in life that brings you joy. You can also use these steps of faith to know God in the manner that will bring you everlasting joy in the life to come.

If your heart is heavy and filled with pain, it may be difficult to find the good feeling you are looking for by asking "how does it feel". In such a case you may have to ask "How would it feel to have the thing or things that I want?"

I found myself in such a situation. Something happened that caused me considerable grief and try as I might, I couldn't find the feeling of already having what I wanted, so I began asking how would it feel to have the thing I was wanting in my life? Gradually I began to find the feeling I was looking for and with continued practice the feeing grew stronger each day, until I was able to have the feeling of what I wanted by asking "how does it feel" and by continuing to practice this, I have now received that thing in my life that was so important to me.

This simple exercise will change your heart, and remember that as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. When you succeed in changing the heart, everything else will change also. It has no choice. It is Eternal law.

Romans 4:17 says, "God calleth those things, which are not as though they were."

The next step is affirmation or prayer. The word affirmation means to make firm, solid or make manifest from the unmanifest. Affirmation (Prayer) is an important part of the four steps of faith, but the feelings that you have in your heart at the time you do your affirmations is what is going deetermine the outcome of what will be created. If you are saying I have plenty of money but in your heart you are thinking about all of the bills you can't pay today, you are creating more bills instead of more money. The first three steps put your heart into a "feeling of faith" and it is from this vantage point that you must make a statement of already having what it is that you want.

While visualizing in your mind's eye that your desire is being fulfilled, audibly speak the words from your heart center (not your voice box) in one simple, concise statement of your desire being completed.

Here are some sample affirmations. God said, "Let there be light." You might say, "I now have many quality, mature people coming into my business daily." Or, "My debts are all paid; I now have plenty of money." You must do this at the time you are feeling how it would feel when you already have what you want.

Daily "praying" your vision statement is compared to the carpenters working daily on the house and if you don't quit along the way, your vision will surely come to pass.

In Luke chapter 6 it says: A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. Gratitude and clearly defining your vision or desire, puts good treasures into your heart. After many days of practicing the attitude of gratitude and putting good vibrations into your heart, like those of Joy and Love, there will be an abundance of good treasure to draw from.

Then in praying or affirming, you will call forth those things, which are not as though they were. You are purposely bringing forth good with the words that you speak out of the abundance of good feelings you have put into your heart. The circumstances you create with the words that come out of your mouth are a result of the feelings you are experiencing in your heart when you speak them.

Matthew 12:33-37 says, Either make the tree good and the fruit good; or else make the tree and the fruit corrupt. For out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh.

A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things, and the evil man evil things. But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the Day of Judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

Is this a wakeup call? Every word you speak is bringing forth either good or bad, sickness or health, abundance or poverty. By your own words you are either receiving blessings or condemnation. And you shall give account for every negative word you speak in the Day of Judgment and every day is judgment day. Every day you are eating the fruit, either good or bad, from the words that came out of your heart in days gone by.

Matthew 6:33 says, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness (which means his right way of thinking) and all these things shall be added unto you." Matthew 12:30 says, "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand."

You can't speak death and life, sickness and health, lack and abundance. When you do, you are dividing your house against itself and you will be brought to sickness and poverty. No man can serve two masters and all you have to do is look at the fruit you have been producing to know what are the real thoughts of your heart and also which master you have been serving.

Not to worry. God is quick to forgive and as soon as you cut the bad wood out of your tree, you will begin producing the kind of fruit you have been looking for. Your business and your bank accounts will thrive, your health will spring forth and your relationships will blossom. "No matter how bad it has been, it is never too late to be great in the kingdom of God!"

During his ministry Christ frequently used a phrase. "Be it done unto you according to your faith." This phrase is a daily decree to each of us and everything that happens to us in life is according to our faith. We each get to choose how to live our lives and the fruit we shall receive tomorrow and the next day and the next.

There is no other path other than faith for whenever you fail to exercise faith you are working outside of the kingdom of God and living in sin. It is sin to think and speak of negative things. Furthermore without faith it is impossible to please God.

When you get rid of all that is negative in your life, your heart can no longer condemn you, for it is out of the abundance of the heart that your mouth speaks and it is your own negative thoughts and words that condemn you.

So get rid of unforgiveness; no longer render evil for evil. Rejoice in knowing that you now have the power to change every situation. Pray without ceasing and in everything give thanks. Prove the four steps of faith by exercising them daily and hold fast to all that is good.

Recap:

Step 1 is gratitude - be thankful for the problem or the goal you want to achieve because it is an opportunity for you to exercise faith.

Step 2. Clearly describe in detail what it is that you want. The more clear and complete even down to the time that you want to have what you are asking for, will increase your faith and the speed with which you realize it.

Step 3. Surround yourself with the feeling of already having that which you want. Ask, "How would I feel if this instant I were to immediately receive exactly what I am wanting to receive?"

Step 4. Is to ask correctly. This can be an affirmation or it can be an actual prayer. But in order to pray correctly there are two things that have been missing from our current Bible because they were removed by Constantine in the 1600's. We completely lost 20 books of the Bible and 20-25 others were seriously edited with the intent to remove salient truths.

Since the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, we now have some of those books again in their intirety. One law of prayer that was totally removed was to surround yourself with the feeling of already having that which you want.

The other thing that has been misunderstood and mistaught by most religious leaders is the part that says to "ask in my name." Christians specifically have been taught to pray in the name of Jesus instead of praying in "my name."

If you were to walk into a bank and ask to withdraw money from the account of Jesus, you would be asked to produce ID proving that you are indeed Jesus. If you are not Jesus, the bank is not going to allow you to request money in his name or any other name for which you cannot produce ID. For the exact same reason, you cannot pray in Jesus' name and expect to receive anything.

Other religions have carried this a step further. They believe they can ask the mother of Christ to mediate with her son in behalf of their wishes. If this were true, I can only imagine how weary the mother of Christ must be from running back and forth between her son and millions of petitioners.

When certain things are put in their true perspective, we begin to realize how rediculous the traditions of men really and how credulous people are to believe such things.

Other religions believe that Christ is only their elder brother instead of their father and that somehow God gives preference to Christ over and above his other children and that if we somehow please our brother that he will intercede and ask God to grant our wishes.

It is not my intent to make fun of anyone. I too grew up in a home where religion was king. I believed that certain religious leaders were the vicar of Christ or his mouthpiece on earth and that if I could somehow get close enough for him to touch me, that I could be healed of my physical diseases and perhaps even find enough favor with God to enter the pearly gates when I died.

I recently saw Pope Francis on television when he visited the Philippines. They announced that millions of people had showed up to get as close to the Pope as they could. For a considerable number that was miles away, but somehow just making the effort to be that close to the Pope brought them joy although there were not even any big screen monitors for them to watch, nor could they hear his voice.

It was near the end of a 3 day conference. The Pope was sitting there; I am sure he was tired, but he also appeared to be as bored as I was. He could hardly keep his eyes open and I thought he might even fall out of his chair as he was obviously fighting sleep.

To my amazement, when the conference ended, the Pope was wide awake and walked with apparent vigor to the vehicle that was waiting to carry him away. I watched for about 20 minutes as they drove mile after mile past the crowds of waiting onlookers as he stood in the back of pickup like vehicle (that was elaborate enough to have been made especially for the Pope) and waived to the people lined up along the streets. No matter how far they drove, there were hoards of people waiting and hoping to get a glance at the Pope.

I thought about the collective millions of hours and dollars that the people had spent to satisfy their hope of being touched by the visage of the Pope. Then I thought how the true and living God would have wanted this wasted time and money to have been used to feed the hungry and lift the burdens of the millions of people who are suffering from lack of work and adequate shelter. In doing so, many lives truly would have been touched by the spirit of God.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if people could learn about the great power of faith that Christ imparted to all who learn how to operate in the kingdom of God? Then they would not flock to such an event hoping that some crumb of the spirit might fall from someone who is no more holy than themselves.

It is true that some may be healed by seeing the Pope, but the Pope did not heal them. Even Christ himself said to the woman who touched the hem of his garment, "your faith has made you whole." If any were healed by seeing the Pope, it was their faith, and not the faith of Christ nor of the Pope that healed them.

With this understanding, people no longer have to seek after religious icons to receive the miracles that they long for. Everyday can be a miracle and they can have miracles as often as they want them by exercising faith correctly. "Whatsoever you ask in faith believing, you shall receive!

Religion is not spirituality. People go to church and events like I just described hoping to be touched by the spirit and receive some supernatural help in some area of their lives. They get motivated with false doctrines and with false hopes and in the end blame themselves for the emptiness they feel inside after leaving their houses of worship.

If churches pointed people to the straight and narrow path (which is personal relationship and personal knowledge of God) then many would be encouraged to continue down that path until they found eternal life. But instead, every religion teaches mixes scripture with the doctrines of men. They merely regurgitate what they were taught in Bible school and the scriptures explains this practice by saying "there is vomit on every table." Thus they lead people away from the straight and narrow path. The Word goes on to say that neither do they enter in but they prevent their followers from entering therein also. (See Matthew Chapter 23.)

Beside Christ there is no vicar; there is no mouthpiece and there is no mediator and if you believe otherwise, then perhaps you should read the 43rd and 44th chapters of Isaiah where Christ is clearly the one speaking. He says, "I AM Alpha and Omega; the First and the Last; I am your Savior and your Redeemer and beside me there is no Redeemer; I AM the Holy One of Israel; I created the path through the Red Sea; I created the heavens and the earth and all things that in them are (that includes the spirits of all mankind); before me there was no God and after me there shall be no God; I know no other Gods."

If Christ knows no other Gods, I think it is safe to say that he is the "only true and living God" and the only one who has power to forgive sins and to grant eternal life.

Furthermore, if Christ is God Omnipotent, then he already had all power in heaven and earth and therefore could not ask for any help to complete the atonement. This leaves us only one thing to conclude and that is, when Christ prayed it was merely an example of how we should pray. Christ prayed in this manner. "Heavenly Father, I ask you in my name for ...  Amen.

The Bible says that if we pray incorrectly, that our prayers shall not be answered. Look around and witness for yourself the millions of prayers that are said each day and not answered. Is it possible that people have been taught to pray incorrectly? Yes, and it is in great part due to the fact that they are asking in Jesus' name and not their own.

Whether Christ were my father or my brother, it makes no sense to pray in his name. Would a child go to his earthly father and say? "Daddy, I ask in your name for..."

It was only after hearing hundreds of sermons on faith that essentially said, "all you have to do is have faith and everything will be okay" that I began to question "what is faith?" And since not one pastor could tell me, I went to God personally to ask and learn about faith and how to acquire it and use it. Finally, it was only after I began to pray correctly that my prayers are now consistently answered.

Let me relate a couple of stories. My 8-year-old stepson fell from an 8-foot cement wall. My wife took him to the doctor and the doctor said his tailbone was broken and we needed to take the him to the hospital an hour from our home town. 

I told my wife that doctors can do nothing for a broken tailbone and she should know because she had broken her own. I asked if she would rather trust in the doctors or trust in God for the boy to be healed. She turned and repeated the question to him and he responded without hesitation that he would rather trust in God.

So I called him to my side and while standing I asked him if he believed that God could heal him and he said yes. I then told him that the first step of faith is gratitude and he needed to thank God for the broken bone because this was an opportunity to exercise faith and witness the miracle of his tailbone being healed. He then thanked God for the broken bone.

Next I told him to visualize the bone coming back together and being completely healed. He then took a minute and did so.

Next I told him to surround himself with the feeling of being completely pain free and having the bone miraculously healed. I watched as he first looked to the right and as his eyes were again moving to the left, I noticed when he first connected with that feeling. I continued to watch for another minute or two when he got a big grin on his face and he said, "Daddy, the pain is all gone."

I said okay, then that means you have already been healed, but we need to complete the process with an affirmation. (Affirm means to make firm from that which is infirm, which are photons of light.)

I recommended to him that he simply thank God for taking away his pain and healing him completely. He quickly did that and went out to play.

About two hours later, the spirit told me to get up from my desk and look out of my office into the living room. The same boy was playing with his oldest brother who at that moment pushed him very hard on the chest with his palms, knocking him soundly to the cement floor directly onto his tailbone.

I noticed that when he hit the floor that he didn't even act as though he felt any pain whatsoever and I am certain that he didn't even think about his tailbone being broken just 2-hours earlier. He stood up, reached back with one hand and brushed off his pants and went outside to play.

I thought about what I had just witnessed and realized that God had told me to get up from my desk so that I could witness that his tailbone had indeed been healed by the power of faith, so that I would be inspired to tell this story as I have done over and over again.

While returning from the Philippines to the US in November of 2014, I was traveling standby and could only fly if seats were available. I went to the airport 4-hours early and after standing in line for about 2-hours I finally reached the ticket counter. I received a Seat Request and was told to stand in a roped off area designated for standby passengers.

I was standing to one side and up walked a nice looking lady perhaps in her early 40's and began talking to me like we were old friends. She said she was a stewardess for Delta airlines and had come the day before trying to get a flight out of Manilla and was turned away because the plane was full.

She told me that there were 40 people waiting on standby that day and there were only 10 seats available. I happened to be at the bottom of the standby list, so this was not comforting news. She then went on to tell me that the planes were overbooked for the next 7 days and that I would probably have to come back everyday for the next 7 days in order to get a flight out.

I though about carrying my luggage back to the street, hailing a taxi and finding a hotel and waiting 24 hours so I could do this all over again and even perhaps for the next 7 days. I wondered what my odds of catching this plane and it seemed to me that it must have been in the billions or maybe even trillions.

Then I thought, "Faith is not dependent upon seats available - whatsoever I ask in faith believing I shall receive." I immediately began thanking God for this seemingly insurmountable opportunity for me to exercise faith. I then began visualizing myself walking down the corridor that leads to the plane and being welcomed aboard.

I then asked myself, "How would I feel if I were to miraculously get a seat on this plane today?" I immediately felt a wave of peace and calmness sweep over me as I thought about how relieved I would be to not have to come back again every day for up to a week before getting a flight out.

I then prayed, "Heavenly Father, I ask in my name for a seat on this airplane today - Amen."

I then tried to maintain the same feeling of calmness that had come over me and I continued to visualize myslelf boarding the airplane that day.

After the full-fare passengers were all given tickets, they quickly filled the remaining seats from the standby passengers. Then they began turning the remainder away one by one. I could have gotten discouraged and simply left at that point, knowing that the plane was already filled, but I waited, trusting in the feeling that God had given me.

Finally after the others had been turned away, a lady from the ticket counter walked up and said, "Mr. Austin, I have a seat request here and if you are willing to go through the long line at security, there is a slight chance that you may be able to board. She said the odds were more against it than in favor, but that I could take that chance if I wanted to. I said thank you very much and took the ticket and headed for the security line.

The hour was so late that they sent someone up from the plane with a sign asking for anyone that may be on the flight I was hoping to catch. I raised my hand and they quickly took me to the front of the line and when I got to the gate, I was given a ticket and I flew that day.

Recently I met a young lady from Pakistan on the Internet. She said my name kept showing up as a recommended friend although we had no friends in common. She kept clicking it off, but one day she heard the spirit say, "send him a friend request".

She did and she was in the hospital with her mother at the time I accepted. She told me that her mother had been hit by a car 9-years-ago and that she had received 6 operations during that time and her leg still would not heal. I taught her the 4 Steps of Faith via Facebook and she translated what I told her to her mother.

When I finished, I suggested that the three of us pray together for her mother and they both agreed and after praying, her mother got up from her hospital bed and walked out of the hospital. She was healed right then and there.

How did this happen? The photons of light that are everywhere present, just took the shape of a healthy leg that is healed and whole instead of a leg that is injured and will not heal. This can happen in a matter of seconds or minutes. We don't have to wait for long periods of time to experience the power of faith and the more we exercise faith on a daily basis, the stronger our faith becomes, until we can realize the answers to our prayers, sometimes before we even ask.

I will finish with one more story. There was a woman living in the United States who had inoperable bladder cancer.

She heard about a hospital in China that uses no drugs, radiation or surgery. They operate solely with the power of faith.

She was assigned three people to attend her. One operated a sonogram and a static photo was taken of the tumor and posted to the left side of a computer monitor. The live feed to the sonogram was then posted to the right side of the screen, the effect being two identical tumors side by side.

Two gentlemen who were trained to feel that they are in the presence of someone who is healed and made whole began their work, which included chanting one word in Chinese equivalent to the English words, it is finished, it is done, it is complete.

In two minutes and forty five secongs from the time they started, the tumor on the right side of the monitor completely disappeared. There was nothing left, not even any residue.

What we now know from Quantam Physicis is that photons of light that are formed into the shape of a tumor can quickly go back into random orbit, which causes that tumor to simply no longer exist. By the same token, photons of light that make up a broken bone or unhealthy organ can as quickly change shape and the bone or organ can be instantly healed.

May God bless you richly as you endeavor to use these four steps of faith in everything you do.

Fevers

Bacteria, viruses, mold, foreign pathogens, and even sunburns cause fevers. To break a fever, take 1-2 droppers of Pure Silver every hour (up to eight hours) until the fever breaks. Pure Silver can also be refrigerated and then applied topically to the forehead, temples, or anywhere else the fever is found.

The body's defense mechanisms seem to work more efficiently at a higher temperature and artificially bringing the fever down before it reaches a critical point can actually aid the responsible micro-organisms in multiplying millions of times faster. Taking the fever down too soon is equally as dangerous as allowing it to get too high. Wrapping the body up in a wool blanket can prove helpful as it helps the body to reach a high enough temperature to help kill the virus that is causing of the fever and it also causes the body to sweat and release toxins through the sweat glands.

Anything above normal but below 100.4 F (38 C) is considered a low-grade fever. Fever serves as one of the body's natural defenses against bacteria and viruses, which cannot live at a higher temperature. For that reason, low fevers should normally go untreated, unless accompanied by troubling symptoms.

Whenever there is fever suspect a virus. Viruses thrive in a cool environment and therefore inhabit the nose, sinus, throat and lungs. Viruses are immune to antibiotics. The only thing that antibiotics can do in case of a viral infection is to kill accompaning bacteria. 

When taking antibiotics, consider the fact that they destroy your natural immunity, making you more susceptible to future infections. If a viral infection is caught early and killed quickly, the concern for bacterial infection is minimal as long as your immune system is functioning normally. 

An effective home remedy against viral infections can be seen by going to the chapter entitled Coronavirus. Another simple yet often times effective way to break a fever is to drink a large glass of warm water and wrap up in a blanket (preferable wool) until you are soaked with sweat. Quickly dry off and put on dry clothes and continue to stay warm. Do not shower for 24 hours after doing this.

If a fever does not break before it reaches 104 degrees, seek the care of a health care professional.

ShopFreeMart PureCopper, PureSilver, Living Minerals, Siaga and Hydration Drops may help in the case of fever and also help eliminate free radicals and other pathogens that may be the cause of a fever. Regular use of ShopFreeMart Immunize can also strengthen the immune system, helping to ward off disease-causing organisms.

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is thought to be an autoimmune disorder with multiple symptoms. It actually results from acidic toxins that settle in the muscle tissues. These acids dissolve muscle tissue causing extreme pain and the inability for muscles to heal quickly. Yeast is a common factor, mostly because yeast thrives in acidic environment.

Yeast and fungus inside your intestines can cause muscle pain and symptoms of depression and attention deficit disorder. It can also result in symptoms of fibromyalgia, headaches, lymph problems and autoimmune disorders, including lupus.

Yeast can also cause fruits and sugars to ferment in the intestines creating a neurotoxin and low dose alcohol toxicity. Yeast can move from the intestines and go into the brain.

By cleansing yeast out of the system, most fibromyalgia patients can control some of their symptoms. Many people have successfully killed the yeast and fungus that are causing pain throughout the body by taking 1-2 droppers of ShopFreeMart PureSilver 3x daily.

PureSilver can also be diluted using purified water to inject into the rectum or vagina using a syringe or douche bottle. Use 1-3 droppers of ShopFreeMart PureSilver (depending upon the severity of the infection) to each oz. of water before injecting.

When large numbers of yeast colonies are killed rapidly, the cleanse may be accompanied by one to three weeks of flu-like symptoms until the dead yeast is washed out of the body.

Drinking plenty of purified water with ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops Concentrate added to it can help remove toxins that are being released as a result of any kind of detoxification program.

Acidophilus supports a healthy intestinal flora, which is an important part of the body's defense against the overgrowth of yeast and fungus. ShopFreeMart and D-Cal also have anti-fungal properties, which in turn helps control the growth of yeast. ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops, Immunize and PureMag support proper pH by neutralizing acid in the body and should be a daily regimen for anyone suffering from pain.

ShopFreeMart PureMag can be applied topically to sore muscles once or twice daily as needed for pain or aches. ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops, Siaga, Pure Copper, PureMag and Vitalize may help remove the toxins that cause fibromyalgia and supply lacking nutrition including vitamins, minerals and freeform amino acids, all known to help. Liver cleansing is also very helpful. (See Liver Cleanse)

ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops, Immunize, PureGold, Pure Mag, D-Cal and Nano Cards have demonstrated to reduce inflammation and pain that may be associated with fibromyalgia.

Getting toxins out of the muscle tissue and providing the right nutrients is key to overcoming the symptoms of fibromyalgia. Taking ShopFreeMart Immunize and ShopFreeMart Activate can be important because they help get rid of candida and help to heal heal leaky gut, which is one of the major causes of fibromyalgia.

Folk Remedy:

Put raisins in a glass jar, cover with Gin to about an inch above the raisins.

Eat 1 tsp. raisins morning and evening.

Fleas

Apple Cider Vinegar diluted with pure water on the back of a dog or cat's neck to ward off fleas and can be added in very small doses to their water.

Flu

Flu is a virus. As the virus begins to multiply rapidly the body make produce a fever, which slows the growth of the virus and giving the immune system a better chance of combating the invaders. (See Fevers)

Colds and flu usually start in the ear canal. At the onset of a cold or flu, put 3 drops of silver in one ear and lie on your side for 6-10 minutes, then repeat in the other ear. Ninety percent of your sypmtoms will be wiped outby the next morning.

Taking 2-3 droppers of PureSilver 3x daily and spraying intra-nasally four or five times daily, will also help reduce congestions and inflammation.

Add ShopFreeMart PureSilver and purified water to an intra-nasal sprayer by mixing 3 droppers of PureSilver for each ounce of purified water that you use and spray this mixture into the nose 4x to 5x daily or as often as is needed for congestion.

For those living, working, or traveling with someone who has the flu, spray Pure Silver into the nose with an intra-nasal sprayer for prevention.

Using Pure Silver as a mouth rinse, eardrops, eye drops, nose drops, and throat spray can also be helpful as well.

Gargling for several minutes with silver three times daily can help with the onset of the flu. Once the flu has set in, it is harder to combat, but taking silver at the first sign of illness, it can reduce symptoms to one to three days. Like treatment of the common cold, silver may best be a preventive treatment when dealing with the flu. Consider regular use of ShopFreeMart PureSilver during the flu season.

ShopFreeMart has antiviral properties as well as supplying nutrients that support a strong immune system.

Fluoride

fluoride picture


Years ago I wrote a college thesis on fluoride. I learned that fluoride is a waste product of aluminum manufacturing.

Aluminum companies piled huge mountains of this toxic waste around the aluminum plants. The fluoride began seeping into the ground water and was killing farm animals within a 15-mile radius around the manufacturing plants.

When it was proven that fluoride dumps were the problem, government regulators ordered these companies to find a safe method of storing this toxic waste.

This was a costly endeavor, so the companies put their scientists to work to find a "profitable" method of getting rid of the fluoride.

It is a scientific fact that "fluorine" (a naturally occurring mineral) is necessary for strong bones and teeth, so they pulled a "bait and switch" on the public by hiring doctors to write reports saying that "fluoride" does the same thing as fluorine.

This propaganda made it easy to sell this toxic poison to toothpaste manufacturers, dentists and municipal water districts. Now instead of paying a lot of money to store this material in drums, they created another lucrative commodity that poisons millions of innocent people

Fluoride actually unravels the genes in the bones and teeth and makes them weaker and more brittle. Fluoride makes holes in the brain similar to Swiss cheese. I also hardens the pineal gland, blocking what some have called the third eye or the intuitive part of the brain.  It makes people lethargic, slows down the mental processes and can lead to symptoms of Alzheimer's. It also causes thyroid diseases just to name a few.

According to the handbook, Clinical Toxicology of Commercial Products, fluoride is more poisonous than lead and just slightly less poisonous than arsenic. It is a cumulative poison that accumulates in bone over the years. According to the Physicians' Desk Reference, "in hypersensitive individuals, fluorides occasionally cause skin eruptions such as atopic dermatitis, eczema, or urticaria. Gastric distress, headache, and weakness have also been reported.

From 1990 to 1992, the Journal of the American Medical Association published three separate articles linking increased hip fracture rates to fluoride in the water. In the March 22, 1990 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, Mayo Clinic researchers reported that fluoride treatment of osteoporosis increased hip fracture rate and bone fragility.

A study by Procter and Gamble showed that as little as half the amount of fluoride used to fluoridate public water supplies resulted in a sizable and significant increase in genetic damage.

Epidemiology research in mid-1970 by the late Dr. Dean Burk, head of the cytochemistry division of the National Cancer Institute, indicated that 10,000 or more fluoridation-linked cancer deaths occur yearly in the United States. In 1989, the ability of fluoride to transform normal cells into cancer cells was confirmed by Argonne National Laboratories.

Since 1991, the New Jersey Department of Health found that the incidence of osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer, was related to drinking fluoridated water.

It is well documented that fluoride in dosages of only 1 part per million, found in artificially fluoridated water, can inhibit enzyme systems, damage the immune system, contribute to calcification of soft tissues, worsen arthritis and of course, cause dental fluorosis in children. These are unsightly white, yellow or brown spots that are found in teeth exposed to fluoride during childhood. 

In the largest U.S. study of fluoridation and tooth decay, United States Public Health Service dental records of over 39,000 school children, ages 5-17, from 84 areas around the United States showed that the number of decayed, missing, and filled teeth per child was virtually the same in fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas. Dr. John Colquhoun, former Chief Dental Officer of the Department of Health for Auckland, New Zealand, investigated tooth decay statistics from about 60,000 12 to 13 year old children and showed that fluoridation had no effect on preventing tooth decay.

Given all of this scientific information, what is behind this push for universal fluoridation? Prior to 1945, fluoride was properly regarded as an insecticide and environmental pollutant. Waste products from the aluminum and the phosphate fertilizer industries contain large quantities of fluoride that destroyed crops and animals, leading to numbers of lawsuits. 

As a result of clever public relations campaigns, fluoride was transformed from an environmental pollutant to an essential nutrient necessary for producing healthy teeth. The science was non-existent, but the P.R. campaign worked so well that being against fluoride was like being against baseball or apple pie.

Giant companies not only made millions from selling this environmental pollutant to water districts and toothpaste companies, but more importantly, it saved them billions of dollars that would have been required to clean up this environmental pollutant.

So, what can you do to protect yourself from fluoride? First, avoid fluoridated water. Much of the world's water supply is artificially fluoridated. The USGS Geological Survey sampling of well water found that half of the private wells in Maine and several areas of the Midwest have extraordinarily high levels of fluoride, namely Nebraska, Oklahoma, Iowa, Idaho and even Texas.

Boiling water removes chlorine, but concentrates fluoride. Most water filters do not remove fluoride, unless there is a reverse osmosis component. Children should avoid fluoridated vitamins and fluoride treatments at the dentist. Everyone should avoid fluoridated toothpaste. The concentration of fluoride in water is 1 ppm, in toothpaste 1,000 ppm and in fluoride dental rinses 10,000 ppm. (See Water Purification)

Several things can be done to remove fluoride from the body. I recommend drinking distilled water with ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops Concentrate for an extended period of time. Boron also helps to remove fluoride, and ShopFreeMart D-Cal is the best Boron supplement I have found. ShopFreeMart Living Minerals chelates and removes poisons and ShopFreeMart PureGold also helps remove toxic substances from the cells, including fluoride.

Food / Soils

By now, you probably know that what you eat has a profound impact on your health. The mantra, "You are what you eat" is really true.

Sad State of Our Soils:

Over the past century, the quality of fresh food has declined due to soil depletion, unsustainable farming practices, overproduction of crops, and the use of pesticides and herbicides. You can no longer assume you're getting all of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and phytonutrients you need by eating a multiplicity of fresh produce, even if you're eating organically.

In 1936, the US Senate was presented with the results of a scientific study it had commissioned on the mineral content of our food. The results demonstrated that many human ills could be attributed to the fact that American soil no longer provides the plants with the mineral elements, which are so essential to human nourishment and nutritional health.

Today the problem is even worse, because chemicals used in modern farming methods have killed all of the microorganisms that break up the inorganic minerals making them bioavailable to the plants.

The following excerpts concerning Senate Document 264 of the 74th Congress, 2nd Session 1936, were found in the March 1936 issue of Cosmopolitan:

"99 percent of the American people are deficient in minerals, and a marked deficiency in any one of the more important minerals actually results in disease."

"Do you know that most of us today are suffering from certain dangerous diet deficiencies which cannot be remedied until the depleted soils from which our foods come are brought into proper mineral balance? The alarming fact is that foods, fruits and vegetables and grains now being raised on millions of acres of land that no longer contains enough of certain needed minerals, are starving us no matter how much of them we eat!"

"We know that vitamins are complex chemical substances which are indispensable to nutrition, and that each of them is important for the normal function of some special structure of the body. Disorder and disease result from any vitamin deficiency. It is not commonly realized, however, that vitamins control the body's appropriation of minerals, and that in the absence of minerals they have no function to perform. Lacking vitamins, the system can make some use of minerals, but lacking minerals, vitamins are useless."

"Laboratory tests prove that the fruits, vegetables, grains, eggs and even the milk and meats of today are not what they were a few generations ago. No man of today can eat enough fruits and vegetables to supply his system with the mineral salts he requires for perfect health."

"It is bad news to learn from our leading authorities that 99 percent of the American people are deficient in these minerals, and that a marked deficiency in any one of the more important minerals actually results in disease. Any upset of the balance, any considerable lack of one or another element, however microscopic the body requirement may be, and we sicken, suffer, shorten our lives."

Folks, this was in 1936, just think about the farming practices we employ today. Now we use herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, insecticides, and any other cides we can think of. Cide means "being killed" by the way, other examples include genocide, fratricide, homicide; you get the point.

So where does that leave us? If even living foods like raw carrots or cabbages can no longer fully supply us with the nutrients we need, where can we turn?

Not surprisingly, a calorie today will provide you less nutrition than a calorie from 100, or even 50 years ago.

So now, more than ever, you must be careful to maximize the "bang for your buck" when it comes to the foods you eat and the supplements you take.

Along with being more careful about WHAT foods you buy, you must also be concerned with how you cook it.

Eating most of your food raw is ideal, but most of us are not going to be able to accomplish a completely raw diet, and we'll end up cooking some percentage of our food.

Smart food preparation starts with high quality foods and food preparation and that means saying goodbye to your microwave oven. Need to sterilize a dishcloth? Use your microwave. But zapping your casserole is a BAD idea if you are interested in preparing healthy food. (See Microwave Ovens)

And don't forget the necessity today of a good nutritional supplement. In my opionion there is simply nothing better or more effective than ShopFreeMart products.

Eating Fruit On An Empty Stomach

Dr Stephen Mak treats terminal ill cancer patients by an "un-orthodox" way and many patients recovered.

Before he used solar energy to clear the illnesses of his patients, he believes on natural healing in the body against illnesses. See his article below. It is one of the strategies to heal cancer.

As of late, my success rate in curing cancer is about 80%. Cancer patients shouldn't die. The cure for cancer is already found - its in the way we eat fruits. It is whether you believe it or not.

I am sorry for the hundreds of cancer patients who die under the conventional treatments.

Eating Fruit

We all think eating fruits means just buying fruits, cutting it and just popping it into our mouths.

It's not as easy as you think. It's important to know how and *when* to eat the fruits.

What is the correct way of eating fruits?

It means not eating fruits after your meals! Fruits should only be eaten on an empty stomach.

If you eat fruits on empty stomach, it will play a major role to detoxify your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities.

Fruit Is The Most Important Food

Let's say you eat two slices of bread and then a slice of fruit. The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but it is prevented from doing so due to the bread taken before the fruit.

In the meantime the whole meal of bread & fruit rots and ferments and turns to acid. The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil.

So please eat your fruits on an *empty stomach* or before your meals !

You have heard people complaining:

Every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian my stomach bloats up, when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet, etc., etc.

Actually all this will not happen if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach.
The fruit mixes with the putrefying of other food and produces gas and hence you will bloat !

Greying hair, balding, nervous outburst and dark circles under the eyes all these will *NOT* happen if you take fruits on an empty stomach.

There is no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic, because all fruits become alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this matter.

If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits, you have the * SECRET * of beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness and normal weight.

When you need to drink fruit juice - drink only * fresh* fruit juice, NOT from the cans, packs or bottles. Don't even drink juice that has been heated up.

Don't eat cooked fruits because you don't get the nutrients at all.
You only get its taste. Cooking destroys all the vitamins.

Eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice. If you should drink the fresh fruit juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it.

You can go on a 3-day fruit fast to cleanse or detoxify your body. Just eat fruits and drink fresh fruit juice throughout the 3 days and you will be surprised when your friends tell you how radiant you look !

Kiwi
Tiny but mighty.

This is a good source of potassium, magnesium, vitamin E & fiber. Its vitamin C content is twice that of an orange.

Apple
An apple a day keeps the doctor away?

Although an apple has a low vitamin C content, it has antioxidants & flavonoids which enhances the activity of vitamin C thereby helping to lower the risks of colon cancer, heart attack & stroke.

Strawberry
Protective Fruit.

Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits & protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging and free radicals.

Orange
Sweetest medicine.

Taking 2-4 oranges a day may help keep colds away, lower cholesterol, prevent & dissolve kidney stones as well as lessens the risk of colon cancer.

Watermelon
Coolest thirst quencher.

Composed of 92% water, it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which helps boost our immune system. They are also a key source of lycopene the cancer fighting oxidant.  Other nutrients found in watermelon are vitamin C & Potassium.

Guava & Papaya
Top awards for vitamin C.

They are the clear winners for their high vitamin C content. Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation. Papaya is rich in carotene; this is good for your eyes.

Drinking COLD water or drinks after a meal = CANCER

Can you believe this ? For those who like to drink cold water or cold drinks, this article is applicable to you.

It is nice to have a cup of cold water or cold drinks after a meal, however, the cold water or drinks will solidify the oily stuff that you have just eaten. It will slow down the digestion.

Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into FATS and lead to CANCER ! It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

Food Poisoning

Food poisoning typically includes symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramping, and diarrhea. It occurs suddenly (within 48 hours) after consuming a contaminated food or drink. It is usually caused by bacteria and viruses.

To fight food poisoning requires aggressive PureSilver use, taking at least 3 droppers immediately, followed by 1 or 2 droppers every hour for the next eight hours. For prevention, 1-2 droppers of PureSilver 2-3x daily. This can be especially helpful when traveling to a foreign country.

You can dilute ShopFreeMart PureSilver by putting 1 dropper of PureSilver to 1 oz. of purified water and spray on food to kill the pathogens that cause food poisoning. After spraying, let it stand for two minutes before eating. Taking PureSilver can also kill E.Coli and salmonella.

Foods To Avoid

Most of us know that food itself cannot be considered poisonous. Very few of us know that pleomorphic bacteria, yeast, and fungus and their toxins, which are characteristically present in stored and fermented food, are using our food chain as a Trojan Horse.

The following list of foods are high in pleomorphic bacteria, yeast, fungus and mold and produce mycotoxins that have been documented to cause specific diseases and very specific organ lesions in both animals and in humans and should never be ingested and if eaten, only in small amounts AND never cold. Most of the foods listed if cooked thoroughly will kill most of the fungus. However, refrigerating them or using them cold, you are literally putting fungus into your body.

1) Pig meat including sausage, bacon, salami, and ham are full of colonized fungal and contain the fungi Aspergillus ochraceus which produces the mycotoxin Ochratoxin A which is associated with many different documented cancers.

2) Tobacco contains yeasts and sugars which ferment the tobacco into the form which reaches the human blood and tissues causing disbiosis of the blood and tissues leading to every degenerative disease known including cancer, diabetes, arthritis, etc.

3) Mushrooms are not a vegetable but rather the fruiting body of a fungus whose major form of existence, the root-like mycelium, is hidden in the soil. This fruiting body is the means to disperse the seed-like spores of the fungus throughout the blood and tissues. For example edible mushrooms induce bladder cancer.

4) Corn and all associated products contain over 25 different strains of disease causing fungus.

5) Peanuts, peanut butter & cashews contain over 27 different strains of fungus. People who eat a lot of peanuts frequently end up with cancer. 

6) Barley contains the Aspergillus ochraceus fungi, which produces the mycotoxin Ochratoxin A. This mycotoxin is associated with many different documented cancers.

7) Animal meat and poultry including beef, lamb, chicken, and turkey also contain Aspergillus ochraceus. You should only eat about 2 oz. of meat once a week that has been thoroughly cooked so that there is no "pink" meat showing. Cooking kills most of the fungi and the body can deal with this small amount. Using Italian dressing to marinate meat is not wise.

8) Alcohol including wine and especially beer contain the same fungus Aspergillus ochraceus which produces the mycotoxin Ochratoxin A.

Wine, beer, or alcohol create toxins in the body that can cause serious problems for anyone who has cancer. It also depresses the immune system, causing more colds and other illnesses.

9) Dairy products including milk, cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese, ice-cream, butter, etc. are fully colonized with fungi and contain the fungus Aspergillus ochraceus which produces the mycotoxin Ochratoxin A. These foods are also high in sugar which promotes the production of pleomorphic bacteria, yeast, and fungus. Yogurt as long as it is made from "live" cultures is fine to eat. As a matter of fact, it is "good" bacteria that actually kill the "bad" bacteria such as yeast in the body. However, eating too much can also have negative effects. Up to 6 ounces a day is fine. 

10) Eggs are fully colonized with fungus and contaminated with mycotoxins. Cooking them kills most of the bacteria and boiling eggs for salads is fine if used at one meal, but when cooked eggs are refrigerated, the fungus begins to multiply again.

11) Stored grains and cereals are fully colonized with fungus and mycotoxins. When someone has cancer, grains should be avoided and be sure to never eat cold pasta salads

12) Stored potatoes are fully colonized with fungus and contaminated with mycotoxins. Baking kills most of the fungus and a baked potato is actually healthy to eat, low in fat and the glycemic index. However, if you pile up the butter and sour cream on a baked potato you are defeating the purpose. Sweet potatoes and yams are even better, but again, cook them, boiled or baked, but do not eat them raw or store them after cooking for this will begin the fungus breeding process.

13) Sugar including honey, maple syrup, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, sucrose, rice syrup, barley malt etc. promotes the growth of pleomorphic bacteria, yeast, fungus, and mold, and suppresses the immune system response for up to five hours. You should avoid all fruit juices containing corn syrup as the sweetener.

14) Vinegar or apple cider vinegar acidifies the blood and tissues which promotes the production of bacteria, yeast, fungus, and mold. Mixing apple cider with baking soda will neutralize the acid and may be beneficial. Apple cider vinegar used in very small amounts, 2-3 teaspoons on salads will kill any type of bacteria on the lettuce will not be harmful and will actually be healthful to the body. Avoid using vinegar to flavor meats or soups. (There are two arguments to apple cider vinegar; especially if it is organic like Braggs brand. Thousands swear by its health benefits and others say that it helps to alkalinize the blood, not acidify it. Some things, like lemon and lime for example start out acid but actually convert to alkaline ash and they end up alkalinizing the body.)

15) Yeast in any form including Brewer's Yeast. Cancer is an overgrowth of yeast colonies and yeast should therefore be avoided.

16) Caffeine in any form acidifies the blood and tissues which promotes the production of pleomorphic baceast, fungus and mold. However, small amounts of caffeine in tea or coffee is good for the body and the immune system can deal with this. When you drink more than 2 cups of coffee a day, you are exposing yourself to large amounts of the fungus and the coffee should be black, without sugar or other sweeteners.

17) High fructose fruits acidify the blood and tissues and feed the production of pleomorphic bacteria, yeast, fungus, and mold. For example, apple juice is contaminated with the carcinogenic mycotoxin Patulin, which is derived from the fungus and is associated with stomach cancer. I strongly suggest not drinking apple juice. Even though juices are pasteurized, heated to kill bacteria and most fungus, apple juice has the highest capability of breeding more of the fungus as it sits on the shelf. The juices that contain the least amount of fungus after sitting are cranberry, (very good for keeping urinary tract and kidneys infections down) papaya, white or red grape and pineapple. Orange juice is fine if freshly squeezed. Avoid juices made from concentrate.

18) Dried fish contains the Aspergillus fungus and the extracts from the dried fish contains large amounts of aflatoxin. Eating raw fish such as in sushi is dangerous. There have been deaths caused from eating raw fish. Never eat cold or refrigerated fish. Anchovies are loaded with the fungus as well as most canned fish meats. Tuna is fine because it has low fungus which the body can deal with in small amounts. Eating tuna packed in water is the best; however limit the amount to less than 4 ounces a day and be aware that tuna and other types of fishes are known to carry mercury, PCB's and other contaminants. Never eat farm raised fish like salmon or trout. Farm raised fish are loaded with bacteria due to the small areas they are raised in and are often fed hormones to make them grow faster.

19) Devitalized salt (processed white store bought salt) changes the negative charge on the blood cells causing them to stack or combine into symplasts, which can lead to oxygen deprivation, congestion, poor circulation, stroke, and/or heart attack. Natural, mined salt like Himalayan or Real Salt is necessary for good health and does not raise blood pressure. (See Salt)

20) Hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils as in margarine, shortenings and vegetable oils are altered fat substances which are known to be detrimental to health because they interfere with normal biochemical processes. These oils have been shown to increase cholesterol, decrease beneficial high-density lipoprotein (HDL) interfere with the liver's detoxification system, and interfere with essential fatty acid function. Dr. Willett at Harvard has shown that these oils cause a 53% increase in coronary heart disease, In September, 1998, The American Heart Association issued a health warning to avoid foods containing these oils. Diabetes type II, cell inflammation and autoimmune problems have been linked to these oils. There are more than 125 research studies showing the negative health effects of these oils.

Overall, the best diet is 80% raw, small amounts of meat proteins, steam vegetables when cooking, use only good fats for frying and never eat fruits after a meal. Fruits should always be eaten fresh and in season on an empty stomach. No canned fruits or juices.

Foot Odor

A very aggressive way to treat the feet is to soak them in warm water for 15 minutes. This will soften the dead skin on the surface, which can be scraped off with a loofah. Now the skin is ready and open for the Pure Silver to be applied to the entire foot. There are some sea salt scrubs that seem to help scrape the dead skin off with much more aggression. The EPA has approved the following claim for silver: "Silver kills the bacteria that causes foot odor."

Forgiveness

The Gift of Forgiveness - for"give"ness is a gift we give ourselves.

Lewis Smedes said, "To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you."

Many of us carry some anger, resentment, jealousy or other negative emotion toward others. Sometimes we continue to harbor these emotions long after a person is no longer in our lives.

Negative emotions are like an anchor around your neck that weighs you down. Such emotions will affect both the quality of your life and your health. Not only does negativity affect you, but it is contagious and affects everyone around you, especially those who are closest to you.

The baser emotions like anger, hatred and unforgiveness block the higher emotions of love, joy and compassion. That simply means you cannot rise to highest levels of love, joy and health when you are chained down by unforgiveness.

Dr. J.A. Salaam said, "In order to increase, you must release."

Catherine Ponder said, "When you hold resentment toward another, you are bound to that person by an emotional link that is stronger than steel. Forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and set yourself free."

Seldom do people make the connection between emotional traumas in their lives and how they feel physically and spiritually. What is even less easy to see is how the fine threads of everyday frustrations join together and become a powerful rope that holds you captive and separates you from a richer, healthier and more joyful life.

Forgiveness is the act of unchaining yourself from thoughts and feelings that bind you to an offense that was committed against you and much of the time these offenses are only imagined because the offender had no intention of doing so.

Forgiveness is a commitment to a process of growth and change. Forgiveness is a creative act. Forgiveness lets the prisoners of the past go free. Not only does it bless him or her that hurt you, more importantly it liberates you and leaves you at peace with your memories.

There is no past, there are only memories of the past and when we live in memories and emotions of the past, it blocks the abundance that could be our future. The first step to forgiveness is to recognize the positive impact it can have on your life.

When you forgive, you stop playing the victim and you release all of the power and the control, which the offending person has had over you. You no longer define your life by how you have been hurt, but instead define yourself by how much you have grown.

Cherie Carter-Scott said, "Anger makes you smaller, while forgiveness forces you to grow beyond what you were."

Life never remains static - it either expands or contracts in direct proportion to your courage to forgive. Forgiveness is the most important single process that brings peace into your life.

Forgiveness has two parts: The lesser part is to forgive others. The greater part is to forgive you for allowing yourself to be bound to negative emotions. Only when you unchain yourself can you fly to greater heights and reach your greater potential.

Affirmations can be a good way to start the process of forgiving. Here is an example: "I now forgive myself for the times I allowed myself to be chained down by "judgment" and "unforgiveness" - I now release all judgment and I forgive all persons who have offended me throughout my lifetime."

William Shakespeare said, "To err is human, to forgive is divine."

The word "give" in forgiveness is not only a gift you give to others; is a gift that you give to yourself.

All of us receive offenses and at some point, all of us have struggled with forgiveness - I know that I have, and in most cases it takes a conscious effort to forgive.

When the Roman Centurions drove nails into the hands and feet of Jesus, he said, "Forgive them for they know not what they do." Neither do those who sin against us understand the eternal consequences of their sins and we should likewise forgive them. In fact, Christ said that he will forgive "whomsoever" he will forgive, but we are commanded to forgive "seventy times seven" those who sin against us. When we fail to forgive, we knowingly break this commandment and we essentially consent to the crucifixion of Jesus.

Our cross in life is to be obedient to God's will and to learn to love and forgive others.

We will either learn to carry our cross or be crushed by it and our hatred toward others will always hurt us more than the person we are holding a grudge against.

Pray then like this: My Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come into my heart, into my mind, into my spirit, into my business, into my home, into each member of my immediate family and into the hearts and minds of the entire human family. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give me this day my daily bread; guide and strengthen me as I work to put food on my table and on the tables of others who stand in need of my help. Give me life more abundantly; give me an overflowing abundance of love, peace, joy, hope, confidence, ability and boldness. Renew my body and give me infinite health and youthfulness. Increase my memory and give me the ability to instantly recall things that I need to remember. Heal my eyes and improve my vision both physically and spiritually, that I may clearly see all things present and future for my own good and for the good of the people that I serve. Give me strength and wisdom to be a force for the good of mankind. Give me inspiration to know and do thy will in all things and in all ways and make me all that you want me to be. Help me to love my fellow man with infinite, perfect love and forgive my trespasses, sins and debts as I forgive those who trespass against me. Thank you Lord for your mercies toward me a sinner, and thank you for making me aware of my sins and making me shrink in the sight of sin. I hate the fact that my heart and thoughts are not yet totally pure and I offer my entire being up to you Lord and ask you to replace my evil nature with holy thoughts and a pure heart. Help me to avoid temptation and deliver me from any evil that comes against me. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen

Any "act" of unforgiveness is equal to the "act" or offense that was committed against you. If you were robbed and fail to forgive, it is as if you were the robber. If you were abused and fail to forgive, it is as if you were the abuser.

And as Christ was able to say, "forgive them for they know not what they do" let us also forgive those who have offended in the past, as well as those who now daily offend us.

The natural reaction is to think or say, "But you don't understand how much it hurt me." No buts, your situation is not unique! Decide this day to be strong! Forgive and set yourself free!

Mahatma Gandhi said, "The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong.

Forgive - let go - and let God into your life!

Repeat this affirmation often. "I now forgive all persons who have offended me throughout my life and I now forgive myself for allowing myself to be chained down by unforgiveness."

Fragrances

Take a sniff around your home. Are you proud of your pine-fresh floors, the floral scent of your bathroom, or the cinnamon candle in your bedroom? Advertisements remind us of the necessity of a "fresh smelling home," making us feel self-conscious about the everyday smells in our lives.

Fragrances are designed to make you, your car, your home and offices smell good, but are there serious side effects? In a recently released study of 17 name-brand fragrances co-authored by EWG and the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, fragrances were found to contain secret ingredients, chemicals not listed on the label, with troubling hazardous properties.

Tests found 38 unlisted chemicals. The average fragrance tested contained 14 secret chemicals. Among them are chemicals associated with hormone disruption and allergic reactions, and many substances that have not been assessed for safety in personal care products by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the industry's own safety panel.

In 1973 Congress passed the federal Fair Packaging and Labeling Act. The law, which requires companies to list cosmetics ingredients on the product labels, specifically exempts fragrances. Since then, the vague word "fragrance" is all you'll find on the label. If there's anything to be grateful for in this, "fragrance" is a recognizable word that is easily avoided by label readers.

The FDA has not assessed the vast majority of these secret fragrance chemicals for safety when used in spray-on personal care products and of the chemicals that have been tested, there isn't a lot of good news. The vague term "fragrance" covers chemicals that can be linked to reproductive damage, hormone disruption, can trigger allergic reactions and even cause birth defects.

In a world of anti-bacterial and squeaky clean, we've become afraid to embrace our natural scents. We perfume ourselves silly, and it's costing us more than the cost of these products.

In fear of body odor, pet smells, foot stench and bad breath, some feel we've lost control of our senses.

Perfumes are so pervasive that we've stopped even noticing their presence. Have you ever tried to buy shampoo without a fruit or floral scent? How about laundry detergent? Now they're being injected into floor and bathroom cleaners, placed in our shoes, on fabric softeners, and sprayed onto our home's "soft surfaces."

According to the National Academy of Sciences, 95 per cent of chemicals now used in fragrance are synthetic compounds, often petroleum based. (Medical News Today, 19 Jun 2004).

Research suggests these chemicals may act as hormone disrupters (possibly causing birth defects in boys and early puberty in girls), carcinogens (causing cancer), and neural damage to those who apply them.

The use of some phthalates has been questioned, and indeed banned from products in the European Union.

Paul Fox, a spokesperson from Proctor and Gamble, assures that his company has rigorous safety protocols, which ensure that all their household items and packaging are safe for both consumers and the environment. He confirms that all requirements are met for each country in which their goods are marketed and sold.

Stacy Malkan, Communications Director for the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, is less confident. She's been fighting for increased awareness and government regulation surrounding the personal care products industry. She says that no level of exposure is safe, and that the political climate of deregulation has fostered the growth of cheap ingredients, to the extent that we've lost control over our own exposure.

"Now we're in a mess where all these chemicals are everywhere and there's not a good safety net that requires companies to be responsible for the chemicals they use and choose the safest alternatives."

Most consumers are unaware that their products could be unsafe, and Malkan challenges that most chemicals have not been tested for health effects. This is in contrast to the European Market, which Malkan reports is making drastic changes to the way chemicals and household products are regulated. "Europe has passed REACH, which will require companies to safety test chemicals that have been used for decades. This will result in changes in the market globally, as awareness increases about the toxic nature of chemicals."

REACH stands for "Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals." The European Commission reports that the system, which was adopted in June, 2007, strives to improve human health by minimizing exposure to dangerous chemicals. Europe has also banned toxic substances from electronics, personal care products and other consumer goods.

Malkan worries what will happen in the North American market is that all the products that don't pass European safety standards will be sold in North America. "We'll become a dumping ground."

In the meantime, for the sake of personal health she recommends avoiding unnecessary exposure to synthetic chemicals by choosing products with simpler ingredient lists, avoiding synthetic fragrances, and avoiding unnecessary products like scented soaps, bubble bath and air fresheners, which provide "gratuitous exposure to chemicals."

Friendship

Sometimes in life, you find a special friend;
Someone who changes your life, just by part of it
Someone who makes you laugh until you can't stop;
Someone who makes you believe that there really is good in the world.
Someone who convinces you that there really is an unlocked door.
Just waiting for you to open it. 
This is Forever Friendship. Be that special friend!

A mouse looked through the crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife open a package. "What food might this contain?" the mouse wondered. He was devastated to discover it was a mousetrap.

Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed the warning, "There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!" The chicken clucked and scratched, raised her head and said, "Mr. Mouse, I can tell this is a grave concern to you, but it is of no consequence to me. I cannot be bothered by it."

The mouse turned to the pig and told him, "There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!" The pig sympathized, but said, "I am so very sorry, Mr. Mouse, but there is nothing I can do about it but pray. Be assured you are in my prayers."

The mouse turned to the cow and said, "There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!" The cow said, "Wow, Mr. Mouse. I'm sorry for you, but it's no skin off my nose."

So, the mouse returned to the house, head down and dejected, to face the farmer's mousetrap alone. That very night a sound was heard throughout the house like the sound of a mousetrap catching its prey.

The farmer's wife rushed to see what was caught. In the darkness, she did not see it was a venomous snake whose tail the trap had caught. The snake bit the farmer's wife. The farmer rushed her to the hospital and she returned home with a fever. Everyone knows you treat a fever with fresh chicken soup, so the farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard for the soup's main ingredient.

But his wife's sickness continued, so friends and neighbors came to sit with her around the clock. To feed them, the farmer butchered the pig. The farmer's wife did not get well and she died. So many people came to her funeral that the farmer had to kill the cow to feed them. The mouse, with great sadness watched it all from his crack in the wall.

So the next time you see someone facing a problem, and you think it doesn't concern you, remember, when one of us is threatened, we are all at risk. We are all involved in this journey called life. We must keep an eye out for one another and make an extra effort to encourage one another.

Here is a true story that demonstrates how much friendshp can mean to someone.

One day, when I was a freshman in high school, I saw a kid from my class was walking home from school. His name was Kyle. It looked like he was carrying all of his books. I thought to myself, 'Why would anyone bring home all his books on a Friday? He must really be a nerd.' I had quite a weekend planned (parties and a football game with my friends tomorrow afternoon), so I shrugged my shoulders and went on.

As I was walking, I saw a bunch of kids running toward him. They ran at him, knocking all his books out of his arms and tripping him so he landed in the dirt. His glasses went flying, and I saw them land in the grass about ten feet from him. He looked up and I saw this terrible sadness in his eyes. My heart went out to him.

So, I jogged over to him as he crawled around looking for his glasses, and I saw a tear in his eye. As I handed him his glasses, I said, 'Those guys are jerks.'  They really should get lives.' He looked at me and said, 'Hey thanks!' There was a big smile on his face. It was one of those smiles that showed real gratitude.

I helped him pick up his books and asked him where he lived. As it turned out, he lived near me, so I asked him why I had never seen him before. He said he had gone to private school before now. I would have never hung out with a private school kid before. We talked all the way home, and I carried some of his books.

Kyle turned out to be a pretty cool kid. I asked him if he wanted to play a little football with me and my friends. He said 'yes'. We hung out all weekend and the more I got to know Kyle, the more I liked him, and my friends thought the same of him.

Monday morning came, and there was Kyle with the huge stack of books again. I stopped him and said, 'Boy, you are gonna really build some serious muscles with this pile of books everyday! ' He just laughed and handed me half the books.

Over the next four years, Kyle and I became best friends. When we were seniors we began to think about college. Kyle decided on Georgetown and I was going to Duke. I knew that we would always be friends, that the miles would never be a problem. He was going to be a doctor, and I was going for business on a football scholarship. Kyle was valedictorian of our class. I teased him all the time about being a nerd. He had to prepare a speech for graduation. I was so glad it wasn't me having to get up there and speak. 

On Graduation day, I saw Kyle. He looked great. He was one of those guys that really found himself during high school. He filled out and actually looked good in glasses. He had more dates than I had and all the girls loved him. Boy, sometimes I was jealous!

Today was one of those days. I could see that he was nervous about his speech. So, I smacked him on the back and said, 'Hey, big guy, you'll be great!' He looked at me with one of those looks (the really grateful one) and smiled. ' Thanks,' he said.

As he started his speech, he cleared his throat, and began 'Graduation is a time to thank those who helped you make it through those tough years.

Your parents, your teachers, your siblings, maybe a coach...but mostly your friends.... I am here to tell all of you that being a friend to someone is the best gift you can give them. I am going to tell you a story.'

I just looked at my friend with disbelief as he told the first day we met. He had planned to kill himself over the weekend. He talked of how he had cleaned out his locker so his Mom wouldn't have to do it later and was carrying his stuff home. He looked hard at me and gave me a little smile. 'Thankfully, I was saved. My friend saved me from doing the unspeakable.' I heard the gasp go through the crowd as this handsome, popular boy told us all about his weakest moment. I saw his Mom and Dad looking at me and smiling that same grateful smile.

Not until that moment did I realize it's depth. Never underestimate the power of your actions. With one small gesture you can change a person's life. For better or for worse. God puts us all in each others lives to impact one another in some way. 

If you know someone that is suffering from discouragement, financial setback or health challenges, perhaps you should be so kind as to share the ShopFreeMart products and opportunity with them. Whatever good they may experience with your help will be a blessing to them and to you. Whatever you sow in life, is what you also reap and your kindness will return to you multiplied, pressed down and running over. At the very least, you will be filled with joy and a sense of satisfaction.

Gall Bladder / Gallstones

A popular gall bladder cleanse consists of drinking olive oil and grapefruit or lemon juice to dislodge gallstones, causing them to travel to the colon for elimination. I have personally used this method and shared it with many people who have successfully done such a cleansing. Although it is somewhat uncomfortable, the results are well worth the effort. (See Liver Cleanse)

A typical gall bladder cleanse is accompanied by lime green pellets. I have seen them range in size from 2 inches long; many being the size of a rabbit pellet or pea out of your garden, down to the size of a small Beebe or smaller coming out in the stool. They are soft and waxy in nature and are made up of mostly cholesterol and bile. They float on top of the water because of their high content of fats and a good gall bladder cleanse can produce up to 6,000 gallstones.

Gallstones inhibit normal function of the liver and gall bladder and if not removed can result in a surgical removal of the gall bladder. Contrary to popular opinion, the gall bladder is not a "spare" part. It plays a very important role in keeping the body alkaline and when the gall bladder is removed, extra measures must be taken to keep the body alkaline.

Cleansing the gallbladder periodically could prevent a lot of gall bladder operations.

Pure Silver can also destroy the bacteria and viruses that can harm the gall bladder and liver. By restoring proper liver function, all systems of the body are benefited, and overall wellness is increased. For these results, take 1-2 droppers of PureSilver 3x daily for 8-14 days.

ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops, PureCopper, PureMag and Siaga support healthy liver and gall bladder function. Omega fats 3, 6 and 9 from sources like flax seed oil and hemp oil are also important for maintaining a healthy gall bladder.

Garlic

Garlic can be taken many ways. It is well known that garlic helps the liver, helps blood pressure, improves oxygen saturation, disinfects the body, destroys parasites and generally creates conditions that would be favorable to healing just about anything.

Garlic is a good absorbent of toxins. Normally, we take garlic oil, eat pressed garlic or roasted garlic or take it dried and powdered in a supplement. These are all fine, and work well as many of us know. In these cases, the garlic is absorbed rather quickly from the GI tract and goes throughout the body and does its work in the next few hours. After that, just the sulfur remains and that also has a medicinal value because it helps with detoxification and provides the body dietary sulfur.

There is a way however, to get the garlic to absorb toxins at the same time it disinfects and promotes liver detoxification and healing of the colon; the largest organ of detox next to the skin. This is done by keeping the garlic more or less intact and swallowing it like a pill. If the garlic cloves are large, they can be sliced into fairly large chunks, but small enough to swallow. If they are small, they can be nicked with a knife so that there can be exchange from inside to outside when they are in the stomach and GI tract.

Swallow enough garlic chunks to equal about 6-8 garlic capsules.

These pieces of garlic have a few advantages over their pressed or ground counter parts:

First, the garlic will be time-released, meaning that it will release fresh medicinal garlic the whole way through the GI tract so that even the lower colon gets the good stuff. This means that the full strength of garlic will be right up against the lower colon where so many pathogens typically live. It is also near the prostate for men and will benefit that area as well.

Secondly, the garlic will appear with a new medicinal power in absorbing toxins, poisons and heavy metals as it goes through. This heavy metal aspect is what first interested me. Garlic does a great job of absorbing and removing mercury and relieving the symptoms of mercury poisoning.

Because of this absorptive action, garlic also pulls poisons out of the liver. These poisons that appear when the liver is overloaded or toxic are one of the fundamental causes of cancer. The liver will detoxify and remove cancer cells them from the body fairly quickly when it is clean, but if it is already too toxic, it has to spend all of its energy just to detoxify itself, which allows the cancer to grow.

Thirdly, garlic will not overheat the body when taken in this form, while in any other form, garlic can overheat the body and cause exhaustion.

Now that we understand the function of garlic, let us talk about the poison factory. The liver is normally a poison processing plant. It cleans out all the worst stuff and neutralizes it for safe elimination. When it is dysfunctional and overloaded, however, the liver can become a metabolic poison factory. It can result in body-wide metabolic toxicity. Neurological and immune dysfunction, cancer and cysts, obesity and inflammation are just a few of the serious problems that can result. Cardiovascular problems and cholesterol abnormalities are certain.

With whole garlic chunks, we can absorb poisons that an overloaded liver otherwise could not process well. Meanwhile, we can also treat the liver. There are many approaches to this which we will discuss in other chapters.

Gastritis and Gas

Always eat fresh fruit in season on an empty stomach. Wait at least 2 hours before eating any other food. Never eat canned fruit and never mix fruit with other foods.

Gas can be produced from yeast and sugar mixing with fruits and vegetables in your intestines. It can also be produced directly from certain fruits, vegetables, and bacteria. Most people think that eating beans produces gas. In reality, a bacterium on the surface of the bean produces gas.

Pure Silver can help because it destroys bacteria that cause gas. If you have a gas outbreak - including painful air pressure in the intestines - take 1-2 droppers every hour for the first few hours.

In addition, ShopFreeMart Immunize are very helpful with gastritis and you might also want to use a probiotic like acidophilus. Digestive enzymes can also be of assistance.

Glands / Hormones

ShopFreeMart PureGold, Siaga, Sugar-D, PureMag, PureCopper, D-Cal, ImmunizeVitalize Incubated Egg Extract each help to activate the glands and normalize hormones. Too many toxins in addition to a lack of minerals and other essential nutrients throw the glands and hormones out of balance. A wide variety of nutrients are needed in the production of the many different hormones that affect the overall health and well-being of the mind and body.

GMO Foods (Genetically Modified)

Today, we are faced with even a bigger concern than lack of nutrition in the foods we eat. Genetically modified crops are, without a doubt, the biggest threat to mankind's survival, which has ever existed. Suffice it to say, there is no evidence to support the claim that GM foods are safe for human consumption and there is a great deal of evidence that they are not. Many have already died and cattle will rather go hungry than eat GM maize! The claims of greater yields are also fictitious; to the contrary, the soil will often become completely infertile within 7 years.

Furthermore, the human digestive and metabolic systems were designed to process specific proteins, carbohydrates etc. having very specific genetic structures and the human digestive enzymes do not break down the genes in GM foods! When the genes of maize are changed for example, the result looks like maize, but genetically it is not maize, which leads inevitably to foods which cannot be digested. This has already happened and the evidence that GM "foods" are poisonous to humans and animals mounts daily.

Almost 20 years ago, companies like Monsanto began genetically altering the plants that make up our source of food. This is really a sinister plot to control the world's food supply. This takeover is almost complete, although thankfully there are now groups of people who are recognizing the dangers of GMO foods and are starting to fight back.


Picture of corn.

Stunning Difference of GM from non-GM Corn

Posted by: TLB StaffPublished August 11, 2013, filed under ENVIRONMENT, HEALTH A comparison of US Midwest non-GM with GM corn shows shockingly high levels of glyphosate as well as formaldehyde, and severely depleted of mineral nutrients in the GM corn. The results of a comparison of GM and non-GM corn from adjacent Midwest fields in the US are reproduced in Table 1. Table 1   Comparison between GM and non-GM corn grown side by side*


GM Corn Non-GM Corn



Ingredient Parts Per Million
Glyphosate 13 0
Formaldehyde  200 
Nitrogen 7 46
Phosphorus 3 44
Potassium 7 113
Calcium 14 6,130
Magnesium 2 113
Sulphur 3 42
Manganese 2 14
Iron 2 14
Zinc  2.3 14.3
Copper 2.6 16
Molybdenum 0.2 1.5
Boron  0.2 1.5
Selenium 0.6 0.3
Cobalt 0.2 1.5



*The GM corn was grown in a field that has been no-till, continuous GM corn (Roundup Ready) for 5-10 years and with a glyphosate herbicide weed control regime for all of the 10 years. The Non-GM corn has not had glyphosate (or Roundup) applied to the field for at least five years. The GM corn test weight was 57.5 lb; and non-GMCorn test weight 61.5 lb.

As Zen Honeycutt, who posted the report commented, glyphosate, shown to be toxic at 1 ppm, is present at 13 ppm in the GM corn. Similarly, formaldehyde at 200 ppm is 200 times the level known to be toxic in animals.

The GM corn was also severely depleted in essential minerals: 14 ppm vs 6,130 ppm calcium; 2 ppm vs 113 ppm of magnesium; 2 ppm vs 14 ppm of manganese 3 ppm vs 44 ppm of phosphate, 3 ppm vs 42 ppm of sulphur, and so on.

It is not surprising that this analysis has been carried out independently; i.e., not by biotech companies. It was done by farmers themselves. The high level of glyphosate is bad enough. Scientific evidence on glyphosate accumulated over three decades documents miscarriages, birth defects, carcinogenesis, endocrine disruption, DNA damage, neurotoxicity, and toxicity to liver and kidney at levels well below recommended agricultural use (see our recent review [2] Why Glyphosate Should Be Banned, SiS 56). The presence of formaldehyde - a genotoxic and neurotoxic poison at such enormous concentration - is totally unexpected.

Analysis obtained by Midwest farmers

Howard Vlieger, a crop nutrition advisor working with family farmers in 10 states across the US, who has been involved in the study and research of GMOs since 1996, explained in an interview [3] that people want "a side by side comparison" of the corn in the same soil conditions with the only difference being the application of glyphosate based herbicide on the GM Roundup Ready (RR) corn and a conventional herbicide on the non-GM corn. "This has not been done and cannot be done according to the technology agreement signed by a farmer planting GM seed without being at risk of being sued by the patent holder of the GM RR corn," he said.

In this case, however, ears of corn from two adjacent corn fields in the Midwest, separated only by a fence, were sampled two weeks before harvest. The corn fields were selected by a third party and the samples collected in exactly the same manner. The separately bagged ears of corn were shelled from the cob and the grain samples sent to the lab for glyphosate testing. The non-GM corn field has not been sprayed with glyphosate for at least five years (see Table 1).

The samples were sent to a certified laboratory where it was prepared for testing on gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, an analytical method in which chemical compounds are first separated on a chromatographic column according to their size and charge and other chemical properties, and then ionized and identified based on mass to charge ratios. The RR corn tested contained 13 ppm glyphosate - coincidentally the EPA's newly set legal limit of glyphosate in corn - while the other non-GM corn sample tested free of any glyphosate. The RR corn sample that tested positive for the glyphosate residue also tested positive for formaldehyde at a level of 200 ppm.

Where does the highly toxic formaldehyde come from?

Plant pathologist and retired Purdue University professor Don Huber, who has been sounding dire warnings on glyphosate poisoning crops, soil, livestock, and people (see [4] USDA Scientist Reveals All Glyphosate Hazards to Crops, Soils, Animals, and Consumers, SiS 53), commented that formaldehyde can come from degradation of glyphosate [5]. But it can also come from normal plant 1-C metabolism, as for example, de-methylation of serine to glycine plus formaldehyde.

Formaldehyde does not exist in the free-state in a healthy normal plant. It is toxic compound that reacts with proteins, nucleic acids and lipids, and has been classified as a mutagen and suspected carcinogen [6]. Formaldehyde is also neurotoxic, and at ~100 ppm induced amyloid-like misfolding of tau protein, leading to the formation of protein aggregates similar to those found in Alzheimer's disease; followed by programmed cell death of the neurons [7]. In normal cells and organisms, formaldehyde is detoxified by glutathione-dependent formaldehyde dehydrogenase (GDFDase) to formic acid [8]. GDFDase is dependent on zinc [9], and it is likely that the chelating action of glyphosate [4] may be responsible for inhibiting the enzyme's activity by depriving it of zinc.

"Of course the scariest part of this is that any RR plant (corn, soybean, canola, cotton, sugar beet or alfalfa) that is sprayed with glyphosate could potentially produce formaldehyde and then the formaldehyde would unknowingly end up in the feed and food supply." Vlieger said [3].  The accumulation of formaldehyde was not due to any unusual environmental stress experienced by the GM corn.  "This corn was not raised in an area that was affected by the extreme drought conditions of 2012."

He also told UK group GMWatch [10] that the glyphosate and formaldehyde could "explain the continuing problems we are witnessing in livestock operations with poor animal health when GMO feed stuffs are in the diet."

Obviously, the analysis should be repeated on more samples of GM and non-GM corn grown side by side to see if these remarkable differences could be replicated. If so, we can only conclude that previous data submitted by and for the companies that found GM corn "substantially equivalent" to non-GM corn must have been fraudulent, and the perpetrators need to be brought to justice.

GMO corn is about 200 times more toxic and has about 20 times less nutrition than Non-GMO corn. So we have this food that bugs won't eat, that bacteria won't eat, that fungus won't eat, the only species that will eat this food are humans.

15 Health Problems Linked to Monsanto's Roundup

Monsanto invented the herbicide glyphosate and brought it to market under the trade name Roundup in 1974, after DDT was banned. But it wasn't until the late 1990s that the use of Roundup surged, thanks to Monsanto's ingenious marketing strategy. The strategy? Genetically engineer seeds to grow food crops that could tolerate high doses of Roundup. With the introduction of these new GE seeds, farmers could now easily control weeds on their corn, soy, cotton, canola, sugar beets and alfalfa crops - crops that thrived while the weeds around them were wiped out by Roundup.

In the nearly 20 years of intensifying exposure, scientists have been documenting the health consequences of Roundup and glyphosate in our food, in the water we drink, in the air we breathe and where our children play.

Eager to sell more of its flagship herbicide, Monsanto also encouraged farmers to use Roundup as a dessicant, to dry out all of their crops so they could harvest them faster. So Roundup is now routinely sprayed directly on a host of non-GMO crops, including wheat, barley, oats, canola, flax, peas, lentils, soybeans, dry beans and sugar cane.

Between 1996 - 2011, the widespread use of Roundup Ready GMO crops increased herbicide use in the U.S. by 527 million pounds, even though Monsanto claimed its GMO crops would reduce pesticide and herbicide use.

Monsanto has falsified data on Roundup's safety, and marketed it to parks departments and consumers as "environmentally friendly" and "biodegradable, to encourage its use it on roadsides, playgrounds, golf courses, schoolyards, lawns and home gardens. A French court ruled those marketing claims amounted to false advertising.

In the nearly 20 years of intensifying exposure, scientists have been documenting the health consequences of Roundup and glyphosate in our food, in the water we drink, in the air we breathe and where our children play.

They've found that people who are sick have higher levels of glyphosate in their bodies than healthy people.

They've also found the following health problems which they attribute to exposure to Roundup and/or glyphosate:

ADHD

In farming communities, there's a strong correlation between Roundup exposure and attention deficit disorder (ADHD), likely due to glyphosate's capacity to disrupt thyroid hormone functions.

Alzheimer's Disease

In the lab, Roundup causes the same type of oxidative stress and neural cell death observed in Alzheimer's disease. And it affects CaMKII, an enzyme whose dysregulation has also been linked to the disease.

Anencephaly (birth defect)

An investigation into neural tube defects among babies born to women living within 1,000 meters of pesticide applications showed an association for glyphosate with anencephaly, the absence of a major portion of the brain, skull and scalp that forms during embryonic development.

Autism

Glyphosate has a number of known biological effects that align with the known pathologies associated with autism. One of these parallels is the gut dysbiosis observed in autistic children and the toxicity of glyphosate to beneficial bacteria that suppress pathogenic bacteria, along with pathogenic bacteria's high resistance to glyphosate. In addition, glyphosate's capacity to promote aluminum accumulation in the brain may make it the principal cause of autism in the U.S.

Birth Defects

Roundup and glyphosate can disrupt the Vitamin A (retinoic acid) signaling pathway, which is crucial for normal fetal development. The babies of women living within one kilometer of fields sprayed with glyphosate were more than twice as likely to have birth defects according to a study from Paraguay. Congenital defects quadrupled in the decade after Roundup Ready crops arrived in Chaco, a province in Argentina where glyphosate is used roughly eight to ten times more per acre than in the U.S. A study of one farming family in the U.S. documented elevated levels of glyphosate and birth defects in the children, including an imperforate anus, growth hormone deficiency, hypospadias (an abnormally placed urinary hole), a heart defect and a micro penis.

Brain Cancer

In a study of children with brain cancer compared with healthy children, researchers found that if either parent had been exposed to Roundup during the two years before the child's birth, the chances of the child developing brain cancer doubled.

Breast Cancer

Glyphosate induces human breast cancer cells growth via estrogen receptors. The only long-term animal study of glyphosate exposure produced rats with mammary tumors and shortened life-spans.

Cancer

House-to-house surveys of 65,000 people in farming communities in Argentina where Roundup is used, known there as the fumigated towns, found cancer rates two to four times higher than the national average, with increases in breast, prostate and lung cancers. In a comparison of two villages, in the one where Roundup was sprayed, 31 percent of residents had a family member with cancer, while only 3 percent of residents in a ranching village without spraying had one. The high cancer rates among people exposed to Roundup likely stem from glyphosate's known capacity to induce DNA damage, which has been demonstrated in numerous lab tests.

Celiac Disease

Gluten intolerance - Fish exposed to glyphosate develop digestive problems that are reminiscent of celiac disease. There are parallels between the characteristics of celiac disease and the known effects of glyphosate. These include imbalances in gut bacteria, impairment in enzymes involved with detoxifying environmental toxins, mineral deficiencies and amino acid depletion.

Chronic Kidney Disease

Kidney Disease increases in the use of glyphosate may explain the recent surge in kidney failure among agricultural workers in Central America, Sri Lanka and India. Scientists have concluded, "Although glyphosate alone does not cause an epidemic of chronic kidney disease, it seems to have acquired the ability to destroy the renal tissues of thousands of farmers when it forms complexes with [hard water] and nephrotoxic metals."

Colitis

The toxicity of glyphosate to beneficial bacteria that suppress clostridia, along with clostridia's high resistance to glyphosate, could be a significant predisposing factor in the overgrowth of clostridia. Overgrowth of clostridia, specifically C. difficile, is a well-established causal factor in colitis.

Depression

Glyphosate disrupts chemical processes that impact the production of serotonin, an important neurotransmitter that regulates mood, appetite and sleep. Serotonin impairment has been linked to depression.

Diabetes

Low levels of testosterone are a risk factor for Type 2 diabetes. Rats fed environmentally relevant doses of Roundup over a period of 30 days spanning the onset of puberty had reduced testosterone production sufficient to alter testicular cell morphology and to delay the onset of puberty.

Heart Disease

Glyphosate can disrupt the body's enzymes, causing lysosomal dysfunction, a major factor in cardiovascular disease and heart failure.

Hypothyroidism

House-to-house surveys of 65,000 people in farming communities in Argentina where Roundup is used, known there as the fumigated towns, found higher rates of hypothyroidism.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease ("Leaky Gut Syndrome")

Glyphosate can induce severe tryptophan deficiency, which can lead to an extreme inflammatory bowel disease that severely impairs the ability to absorb nutrients through the gut, due to inflammation, bleeding and diarrhea.

Liver Disease

Very low doses of Roundup can disrupt human liver cell function, according to a 2009 study published in Toxicology.

Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS)

Sulfate deficiency in the brain has been associated with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Glyphosatedisrupts sulfate transport from the gut to the liver, and may lead over time to severe sulfate deficiency throughout all the tissues, including the brain.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

An increased incidence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBS) has been found in association with Multiple Sclerosis. Glyphosate may be a causal factor. The hypothesis is that glyphosate-induced IBS causes gut bacteria to leak into the vasculature, triggering an immune reaction and consequently an autoimmune disorder resulting in destruction of the myelin sheath.

Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

A systematic review and a series of meta-analyses of nearly three decades worth of epidemiologic research on the relationship between non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) and occupational exposure to agricultural pesticides found that B cell lymphoma was positively associated with glyphosate.

Parkinson's Disease

The brain-damaging effects of herbicides have been recognized as the main environmental factor associated with neurodegenerative disorders, including Parkinson's disease. The onset of Parkinson's following exposure to glyphosate has been welldocumented and lab studies show that glyphosate induces the cell death characteristic of the disease.

Pregnancy Problems (infertility, miscarriages, stillbirths)

Glyphosate is toxic to human placental cells, which, scientists say, explains the pregnancy problems of agricultural workers exposed to the herbicide.

Obesity

An experiment involving the transfer of a strain of endotoxin-producing bacteria from the gut of an obese human to the guts of mice caused the mice to become obese. Since glyphosate induces a shift in gut bacteria towards endotoxin-producers, glyphosate exposure maycontribute to obesity in this way.

Reproductive Problems

Studies of laboratory animals have found that male rats exposed to high levels of glyphosate, either during prenatal or pubertal development, suffer from reproductive problems, including delayed puberty, decreased sperm production, and decreased testosterone production.

Respiratory Illnesses

House-to-house surveys of 65,000 people in farming communities in Argentina where Roundup is used, known there as the fumigated towns, found higher rates of chronic respiratory illnesses.

Note: Monsanto's Roundup is Now Found in 75% of Air and Rain Samples.

God vs. Science

I have not been able to verify this story, but it makes a good point and for the sake of that lesson I have chosen to include it.

Albert Einstein wrote a book entitled God vs. Science in 1921.

In a College classroom, an atheist professor of philosophy says to his students, 'Let me explain the problem science has with religion.'

He then asks one of his new students to stand. 'You're a Christian, aren't you, son?'

'Yes sir,' the student says. 'So you believe in God?' 'Absolutely. '

'Is God good?' 'Sure! God's good.'

'Is God all-powerful? Can God do anything?' 'Yes'

'Are you good or evil?' 'The Bible says I'm evil.'

The professor grins knowingly. 'Aha! The Bible! He considers for a moment. 'Here's one for you. Let's say there's a sick person over here and you can cure him. Would you do it?'

'Yes sir, I would.'

'So you're good!' 'I wouldn't say that.' 'But why not say that? You'd help a sick and maimed person if you could. Most of us would if we could. But God doesn't.'

The student does not answer, so the professor continues. 'He doesn't, does he? My brother was a Christian who died of cancer, even though he prayed to Jesus to heal him. How is this Jesus good? Can you answer that one?' The student remains silent.

'No, you can't, can you?' the professor says. He takes a sip of water from a glass on his desk to give the student time to relax. 'Let's start again, young fella. Is God good?'

'Er yes,' the student says.

'Is Satan good?' The student doesn't hesitate on this one. 'No.'

'Then where does Satan come from?' The student falters. 'From God' 'That's right. God made Satan, didn't he? Tell me, son. Is there evil in this world?' 'Yes, sir.'

'Evil's everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything, correct?' 'Yes' 'So who created evil?' The professor continued, 'If God created everything, then God created evil, since evil exists, and according to the principle that our works define who we are, then God is evil.' Again, the student has no answer.

'Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things, do they exist in this world?' The student squirms on his feet. 'Yes.' 'So who created them?'

The student does not answer again, so the professor repeats his question. 'Who created them?' There is still no answer. Suddenly the lecturer breaks away to pace in front of the classroom. The class is mesmerized. 'Tell me,' he continues onto another student. 'Do you believe in Jesus Christ, son?' The student's voice betrays him and cracks. 'Yes, professor, I do.'

The old man stops pacing. 'Science says you have five senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Have you ever seen Jesus?' 'No sir. I've never seen Him.' 'Then tell us if you've ever heard your Jesus?' 'No, sir, I have not.'

'Have you ever felt your Jesus, tasted your Jesus or smelled your Jesus? Have you ever had any sensory perception of Jesus Christ, or God for that matter?' 'No, sir, I'm afraid I haven't.' 'Yet you still believe in him?' 'Yes'

'According to the rules of empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, science says your God doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?' 'Nothing,' the student replies. 'I only have my faith.' 'Yes, faith,' the professor repeats. 'And that is the problem science has with God. There is no evidence, only faith.'

The student stands quietly for a moment, before asking a question of His own.

'Professor, is there such thing as heat?' 'Yes.' 'And is there such a thing as cold?'

'Yes, son, there's cold too.' 'No sir, there isn't.'

The professor turns to face the student, obviously interested. The room suddenly becomes very quiet.

The student begins to explain. 'You can have lots of heat, even more heat, super-heat, mega-heat, unlimited heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat, but we don't have anything called 'cold'. We can hit down to 458 degrees below zero, which is no heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold; otherwise we would be able to go colder than the lowest -458 degrees. Every object or body is susceptible to study when it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter have or transmit energy. Absolute zero (-458 F) is the total absence of heat.

You see, sir, cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat we can measure in thermal units because heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat sir, just the absence of it.'

Silence across the room. A pen drops somewhere in the classroom, sounding like a hammer.

'What about darkness professor; is there such a thing as darkness?' 'Yes,' the professor replies without hesitation. 'What is night if it isn't darkness?' 'You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is not something; it is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light, but if you have no light, you have nothing, but we call it darkness, don't we? That's the word we use to define the absence of light. In reality, darkness isn't. If it were, you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?'

The professor begins to smile at the student in front of him. This will be a good semester.

'So what point are you making, young man?' 'Yes, professor, my point is, your philosophical premise is flawed to start with, and so your conclusion must also be flawed.'

The professor's face cannot hide his surprise this time. 'Flawed? Can you explain how?'

'You are working on the premise of duality,' the student explains. 'You argue that there is life and then there's death; a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, science can't even explain a thought.' 'It uses electricity and magnetism, which neither have ever been seen, much less fully understood. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of it.' 'Now tell me, professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?'

'If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, young man, yes, of course I do.' 'Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?' The professor begins to shake his head, still smiling, as he realizes where the argument is going; a very good semester, indeed.

'Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you now not a scientist, but a preacher?'

The class is in uproar. The student remains silent until the commotion has subsided.

'To continue the point you were making earlier to the other student, let me give you an example of what I mean.' The student looks around the room. 'Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the professor's brain?' The class breaks out into laughter. 'Is there anyone here who has ever heard the professor's brain, felt the professor's brain, touched or smelt the professor's brain? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain, with all due respect, sir.' 'So if science says you have no brain, how can we trust your lectures, sir?'

Now the room is silent. The professor just stares at the student, his face unreadable. Finally, after what seems an eternity, the old man answers. 'I guess you'll have to take them on faith.'

'Now, you accept that there is faith, and in fact, faith exists with life,' the student continues. 'Now, sir, is there such a thing as evil?'

Now uncertain, the professor responds, 'Of course, there is. We see it every day. It is in the daily example of man's inhumanity to man. It is in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world. These manifestations are nothing else but evil.'

To this the student replied, 'Evil does not exist sir, or at least it does not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe the absence of God. God did not create evil. Evil is the result of what happens when man does not have God's love present in his heart. It's like the cold that comes when there is no heat or the darkness that comes when there is no light.'

The professor sat down.

Good Story

Once there was a king in Africa who had a very dear friend. They grew up together and were bosom buddies all of their lives.

The king's friend had the habit of saying "that is good" to every experience that came his way. One day the king and his friend were out hunting. The friend reloaded the rifles each time the king fired a shot. Something went wrong with one of the guns and as the king pulled the trigger, the gun exploded, dismembering the king's thumb.

The friend examined the king's hand and remarked "that is good." The king said "that is not good," and had his friend thrown in jail. About a year later, the king was hunting in an area where he shouldn't have been hunting and he was captured by cannibals.

The cannibals had him tied up, had a huge bonfire going and were preparing to roast him. One of the cannibals noticed that the king was missing a thumb and because they had the habit of eating nothing that was less than perfect, they untied the king and let him go free.

The king then realized that it was indeed "good" that he was missing a thumb. The king promptly visited his friend, let him out of jail and profusely apologized for locking him up. Whereupon his friend immediately replied, "that is good."

The king then asked his friend, "what could be good about spending a year of your life in prison?" The friend then said, "if I hadn't been in prison, I would have been hunting with you and I have all of my body parts."

Moral to the story: We create our future by the words we speak today. Whenever we say that an experience is bad, sure enough it turns out that way. Whenever we say "that is good." Sure enough it turns out for our good.

To postulate what may have happened if the king's friend had said "that is bad" instead of "that is good" when he was thrown in prison.......

The king may have been killed by a lion or tiger, eaten by the cannibals, or died in some other way, in which case he would have spent the rest of his life in jail.

The fact that he said "that is good," put good things in motion that eventually brought good back to him and ultimately spared his life.

I love this story and I try to make it a daily habit to live this by principle. After all, "All things work for good to those who love the Lord."

Good vs. Evil

TWO WOLVES - Cherokee Legend

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, "My son, the battle is between two "wolves" inside us all.

One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: "Which wolf wins?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

Gossip

GOSSIP TOWN ~ Jack Suttles

Have you ever heard of Gossip Town
On the shores of Falsehood Bay
Where old dame Rumor with rustling gown
Is found the livelong day

It isn't far to Gossip Town
For people who want to go
The Idlest Trail will take you down
In just a minute or so

Thoughtless Road is the easy route
And most folks start that way
But it's a slippery slope and if you don't watch out
You'll land in Falsehood Bay

You'll pass through the alley of Vicious Town
And into the tunnel of Hate
Then crossing the bridges of Scorn and Frown
You'll enter the city gate

The principal street is called They Say
And I've Heard at the public well
The breezes that blow from Falsehood Bay
Are laden with "don't you tell"

In the midst of the town is Telltale Park
You're never safe while there
For its owner is madam Cutting Remark
Who lives on the street Don't Care

Just back of the park is Slander Road
Twas there that Good Name died
Pierced by the shaft from Jealousy's bow
In the hands of Envious Pride

From Gossip Town, Peace long since fled
To escape, Trouble, Cares and Woe
And Sorrow and Grief you'll find instead
If ever you chance to go

Gout

Gout is a complex form of arthritis characterized by sudden, severe attacks of pain, redness and tenderness in joints, often the joint at the base of the big toe. These attacks can happen over and over unless gout is treated. In time they can damage joints, tendons, and other tissues. Men are more likely to get gout, but women become increasingly susceptible to gout after menopause.

Symptoms of gout are almost always acute, occurring suddenly; often at night and without warning.

Gout commonly affects the large joint of your big toe, but it can occur in your feet, ankles, knees, hands and wrists. The affected joint or joints become swollen, tender and red.

The pain is likely to be most severe within the first 12 to 24 hours after it begins. After the most severe pain subsides, some joint discomfort may last from a few days to a few weeks. Later attacks are likely to last longer and affect more joints.

Gout is caused by too much uric acid in the blood. When uric acid concentrations are too high, urate crystals accumulate around your joints, causing the inflammation and intense pain of a gout attack. Gout is one of over one hundred forms of arthritis. Fortunately it is highly treatable. In recent years natural remedies for gout have become very popular. The primarily reason for this is that most gout medications have severe side effects and are not safe long term. Natural remedies are safe to take and have no side effects. As an added benefit, most natural treatments contain ingredients that will help improve the bodies overall health.

Gout occurs when levels of uric acid are elevated causing severe attacks of pain, swelling, redness, and inflammation. Needle shaped uric acid crystals stab their way into joints rendering lightning bolts of pain and leading to joint damage.

Obesity and improper diet increase the risk of developing gout. It has been called the rich man`s disease because of its association with overindulgence of rich food and alcohol. Due to a deluge of chemicals that are now in foods and beverages, it now affects people of all ages and from all walks of life. It may be brought on by crash dieting, certain medications, overeating, stress, surgery or injury to a joint.

The best way to get a diagnosis of gout is for a physician to insert a needle into the affected joint, remove some fluid and examine it for uric acid crystals.

It is recommended that when an attack occurs; eat only raw vegetables for two weeks. It is a good idea to eat more of these kinds of foods anyway. Even the sugars in fresh fruits can aggravate the symptoms, so if you do eat some fresh fruit, keep total sugar level below 15-25 grams daily. (See Sugar)

Celery juice is very alkaline, which helps neutralize the uric acid. Dilute it with Distilled Water mixed with ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops, not tap, water. Some claim that eating a cupful of fresh cherries will help stave off painful episodes. Strawberries and blueberries may do the same. Other safe foods during an episode are millet, green vegetables, seeds and sprouted grains.

Foods that are linked to gout which should be avoided are pork and shellfish. Other foods to avoid and discourage another gout flare-up are: meat of any kind, sardines, scallops, shellfish, mushrooms, mussels, peanuts, mackerel, asparagus, alcohol beverages, and diet soda. Condiments such as MSG and artificial sweeteners (aspertame and 50 other names given to this horrible poison) should be strictly avoided. Also limit your intake of caffeine, cauliflower, dried beans and lentils, oatmeal, peas, spinach and yeast products.

Vegetables from the nightshade family are poisonous to everyone, but more especially to people who are prone to gout. These include: Tomatoes. Tomatillos. Eggplant. Potatoes. Goji Berries. Tobacco. Peppers (bell peppers, chili peppers, paprika, tamales, tomatillos, pimentos, cayenne, etc).

At first glance, the nightshades may look like a random collection of foods that couldn’t possibly be related.  However, every nightshade plant contains glycoalkaloids.

Glycoalkaloids are neurotoxins that kill insect predators. They block the enzyme cholinesterase. This enzyme is responsible for breaking down acetylcholine, a vital neurotransmitter that carries signals between nerve cells and muscle cells. When this important enzyme is blocked, acetylcholine can accumulate and electrically overstimulate muscle cells. This can lead to paralysis, convulsions, respiratory arrest, and death to insects. It works on insects the same way Military "nerve gases" work on humans.

What do we know about the effects of glycoalkaloids on human health?

Glycoalkaloids destroy cell membranes. Research has shown that glycoalkaloids can burst open the membranes of red blood cells and mitochondria (our cells’ energy generators).

“Some scientists have wondered whether glycoalkaloids could be one potential cause for “leaky gut” syndromes due to their ability to poke holes in cells: “…glycoalkaloids, normally available while eating potatoes, embed themselves and disrupt epithelial barrier integrity in a dose-dependent fashion in both cell culture models and in sheets of mammalian intestine…animals with the genetic predisposition to develop IBD, demonstrated a greater degree of small intestinal epithelial barrier disruption and inflammation when their epithelium was exposed to the potato glycoalkaloids chaconine and solanine.”

Herbs that are helpful for Gout:

Bilberry extract, turmeric, celery seed, chamomile, lady`s mantle (yarrow), peppermint or skullcap. Prescription for Nutritional Healing recommends 2,000 to 3,000 milligrams daily of alfalfa, a good source of minerals that reduces uric acid. Devil`s claw and yucca can aid in relieving pain. Other herbs to try are birch, burdock, colchicum tincture, hyssop and juniper.

ShopFreeMart has several products that may help reduce uric acid levels:

First of all, dilute the acid by drinking plenty of ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops mixed with distilled water and the effects of the acid are naturally going to be reduced. Magnesium and Boron are both highly alkaline, therfore taking ShopFreeMart PureMag and D-Cal with make the body less acidic, reducing the symptoms caused by acid in the body.

ShopFreeMart PureGold and Siaga are anti-inflammatory, which may reduce inflammation in the body and also help with pain associated with gout.

In addition to taking ShopFreeMart products, I recommend eating a wholesome diet that includes as much as possible of organically grown fruits and vegetables and also meats if you are not vegetarian.

Breathing Exercises combined with stretching, dancing, yoga, Tai Chi, and aerobics improves oxygenation and circulation which is an essential part of overcoming gout.

Apply an activated charcoal poultice to draw out toxins. Combine 1/2 cup powdered charcoal with 1/4 cup ground flaxseed. Mix in warm water until it becomes a thick paste, apply to the joint, and then wrap securely. Caution, this will stain clothing.

Soak the affected joint for thirty to sixty minutes in a mix of hot water and activated charcoal.

Avoid taking high doses of niacin (over 50 milligrams daily.) Large doses of niacin can cause a buildup of uric acid, triggering gout.

Your body produces uric acid when it breaks down purines that are found naturally in your body, as well as in certain foods, such as anchovies, herring, asparagus and mushrooms.

People who suffer from gout should avoid pork at all costs. Pigs do not have sweat glands and large amounts of uric acid are stored in their muscles. A person with gout struggles to eliminate the uric acid that their own body produces, without consuming it directly by eating pork. Also avoid shrimp and lobster as they are likely to produce gout as well.

Normally, uric acid dissolves in your blood and passes through your kidneys into your urine. But sometimes your body either produces too much, or your kidneys excrete too little uric acid.

Patent medicines do not cure gout and lead to other health problems. The best thing to do is eliminate all acid forming foods, drinks, sugars, dairy, and flour products, and eat a minimal amount of meat. The body only needs about two ounces of meat once a week to give you what you need in the way of nutrition from meat.

Aspartame and Sugar are major causes of gout and everyone should avoid these deadly poisons.

Drinking FreeMart Hydration Drops with freshly sqeezed lemon juice added helps to dilute uric acid, reducing pain in the joints and muscles and can also help with gout.

Try to make 80% of your diet raw, organic fruits and vegetables.

ShopFreeMart Immunize can help to keep your colon clean PureMag can help to keep you regular. Also taking a good probiotic is important in preventing gout.

Grandma's Hands

Grandma, some ninety plus years, sat feebly on the patio bench. She didn't move, just sat with her head down staring at her hands. When I sat down beside her she didn't acknowledge my presence and the longer I sat I wondered if she was OK. Finally, not really wanting to disturb her but wanting to check on her at the same time, I asked her if she was OK.

She raised her head and looked at me and smiled. "Yes, I'm fine, thank you for asking," she said in a clear strong voice.

"I didn't mean to disturb you, Grandma, but you were just sitting here staring at your hands and I wanted to make sure you were OK," I explained to her.

"Have you ever looked at your hands?" she asked. "I mean really looked at your hands?"

I slowly opened my hands and stared down at them. I turned them over, palms up and then palms down. No, I guess I had never really looked at my hands as I tried to figure out the point she was making.

Grandma smiled and related the following story: "Stop and think for a moment about the hands you have, how they have served you well throughout your years.

"These hands, though wrinkled, shriveled and weak have been the tools I have used all my life to reach out and grab and embrace life. They braced and caught my fall when as a toddler I crashed upon the floor. They put food in my mouth and clothes on my back. As a child my mother taught me to fold them in prayer.

They tied my shoes and pulled on my boots. "They held my husband and wiped my tears when he went off to war. They have been dirty, scraped and raw, swollen and bent! "They were uneasy and clumsy when I tried to hold my newborn son.

Decorated with my wedding band they showed the world that I was married and loved someone special. "They wrote my letters to him and trembled and shook when I buried my parents and spouse.

They have held my children and grandchildren, consoled neighbors, and shook in fists of anger when I didn't understand. They have covered my face, combed my hair, and washed and cleansed the rest of my body.

"They have been sticky and wet, bent and broken, dried and raw. And to this day when not much of anything else of me works real well these hands hold me up, lay me down, and again continue to fold in prayer.

"These hands are the mark of where I've been and the ruggedness of life. But more importantly it will be these hands that God will reach out and take when he leads me home. And with my hands He will lift me to His side and there I will use these hands to touch the face of Christ."

I will never look at my hands the same again. God reached out and took my grandma's hands and led her home. When my hands are hurt or sore or when I stroke the face of my children and husband I think of Grandma. I know she has been held by the hands of God. And I, too, want to touch the face of God and feel His hands upon my face.

Graves Disease

Graves' disease, also known as toxic diffuse goiter, is an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. It frequently results in and is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism and or an enlarged thyroid. Signs and symptoms of hyperthyroidism may include irritability, muscle weakness, sleeping problems, a fast heartbeat, poor tolerance of heat, diarrhea, and unintentional weight loss. Other symptoms may include thickening of the skin on the shins, known as pretibial myxedema, and eye bulging, a condition caused by Graves' ophthalmopathy. People with Graves' are more prone to developing eye problems.

A person is more likely to be affected if they have type 1 diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis. Smoking also increases the risk of disease and may worsen eye problems. The disorder results from an antibody, called thyroid stimulating immunoglobulin (TSI), that has a similar effect to thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH). These TSI antibodies cause the thyroid gland to produce excess thyroid hormone.

Toxicity of the thyroid can be from a variety of sources, but due to the fact that Graves' is an autoimmune disease, it is almost certain that leaky gut syndrome is the root cause of this disease.

Healing the leaky gut is of paramount importance and the two best products that I know of for healing leaky gut is bovine colostrum found in ShopFreeMart's Immunize and ShopFreeMart Activate. Another great product for healing the gut is ShopFreeMart Siaga.

To help remove the toxic condition of the thyroid, you need water that is very hydrating. ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops increases water's ability to hydrate. And then I recommend nano gold like that found in ShopFreeMart PureGold Concentrate to open up the cells so they can release whatever toxins may be found there.

The two minerals that are most closely associated with healthy thyroid function are iodine and copper. I tell people to buy cheap  orange/rust colored iodine like Povidone and apply to the bottoms of the feet before going to bed. If you are lacking iodine, it will all be soaked in by morning. Do this consecutively for a few nights until it stops soaking in completely. This will incidate that your iodine levels are normal. Then periodically expirement to see if it soaks in again, indicating that  your levels are less than normal.

You can also take Potassium iodide. Japanese women get an average of 12.5 mg of iodine daily from sea food and seaweed, so this is the amount of daily iodine I recommend.

Also take ShopFreeMart PureCopper as recommended to keep the thyroid supplied with these two most important minerals for thyroid function.

Magnesium is also required for thyroid function. ShopFreeMart PureMag is the best form of magnesium available in the marketplace. Other common symptoms for lack of magnesium are muscle spasms, cramps, twitching and pain. All heart conditions can be related to magnesium deficiency and if you suspect a lack of magnesium (which most people are) then take ShopFreeMart PureMag as part of your regimen for Graves' as well.

Handbags

Have you ever noticed gals who drop their handbags on public toilet floors then go directly to their dining tables and lay it on the table? Happens a lot! It's not always the 'restaurant food' that causes stomach distress. Sometimes "what you don't know 'will' hurt you"!

Mom got so upset when guests came in the door and plopped their handbags down on the counter where she was cooking or setting up food. She always said that handbags are really dirty, because of where they have been. Smart Mom!

It's something just about every woman carries with them. While we may know what's inside our handbags, do you have any idea what's on the outside?

Women carry handbags everywhere; from the office to public toilets to the floor of the car. Most women won't be caught without their handbags, but did you ever stop to think about where your handbag goes during the day.

One woman said, "I drive a school bus, so my handbag has been on the floor of the bus a lot, on the floor of my car and bathrooms." "I put my hand bag in grocery shopping carts, on the floor of the toilet and of course in my home, which should be clean" says another woman.

Nelson Laboratories in Salt Lake City set out to test the average woman's handbag to find out if handbags harbor a lot of bacteria. Most women told us they didn't stop to think about what was on the bottom of their handbag. Most said at home they usually set their handbags on top of kitchen tables and counters where food is prepared. Most of the ladies we talked to told us they wouldn't be surprised if their handbags were at least a little bit dirty. It turns out handbags are so surprisingly dirty, even the micro-biologist who tested them was shocked.

Nelson Labs says nearly all of the handbags tested were not only high in bacteria, but high in harmful kinds of bacteria. Pseudomonas can cause eye infections, blindness and even death. Staphylococcus aurous can cause serious skin infections, and salmonella and e-coli found on the handbags could make people very sick.

In one sampling, four of five handbags tested positive for salmonella, and that's not the worst of it. "There is fecal contamination on the handbags," says Amy at Nelson Laboratories.

Leather or vinyl handbags tended to be cleaner than cloth handbags and lifestyle seemed to play a role. People with kids tended to have dirtier handbags than those without, with one exception.

The handbag of one single woman who frequented nightclubs had one of the worst contaminations of all. "Some type of feces, or possibly vomit" says Amy.

So the moral of this story - your handbag won't kill you, but it does have the potential to make you very sick if you keep it on places where you eat. Use hooks to hang your handbag at home and in toilets, and don't put it on your desk, a restaurant table, or on your kitchen countertop.

Experts say you should think of your handbag the same way you would a pair of shoes. "If you think about putting a pair of shoes onto your counter tops, that's the same thing you're doing when you put your handbag on the counter tops" - your handbag has gone where individuals before you have sneezed, coughed, spat, urinated, emptied bowels, etc!

Do you really want to bring that home with you? The microbiologists at Nelson also said cleaning a handbag will help. Wash cloth handbags and use leather cleaner to clean the bottom of leather handbags.

Headaches

Breathing Therapy: The nose has a left and a right nostril. Although we use both to inhale and exhale, they each have a different function. Some cultures have long recognized this fact and have used the symbol of the sun to represent the right nostril and the moon to represent the left nostril.

During a headache, close your right nostril and use your left nostril to breathe.

In about 5 minutes, your headache will be gone. If you feel tired, just reverse, close your left nostril and breathe through your right nostril. After a few minutes you will feel your mind will feel refreshed.

Right side belongs to 'hot', so it gets heated up easily and left side belongs to 'cold'.

Most females breathe with their left nostrils, so they get "cooled off" faster.

Most of the guys breathe with their right nostrils, they get worked up.

You may begin to pay attention the moment you wake up to see which nostril is more open and thus takes in air faster. If the left is faster, you will feel tired. So, close your left nostril and use your right nostril for breathing, you will feel refreshed quickly.

This can be taught to children, but it is more effective when practiced by adults.

A college student suffered with headaches literally every night and she took prescription pain killers from her doctor, but they didn't really help. Her studies and grades suffered as a result of the headaches.

She then heard about this breathing therapy and decided to try it. She closed her right nostril and breathed through her left nostril for five minutes. In less than a week, her headaches were gone!

Headaches have an underlying problem with toxins in the body. The exercise above no doubt helps to burn toxins out of the brain by providing more oxygen. However, to speed up the process of burning toxins and also to provide a whirlwind of oxygen to all of the cells of the body See Breathing Exercises.

Migraine headaches are a symptom, never a cause. Migraines involve iron overload, insulin/leptin resistance, sluggish bowel, and a compromised intestinal tract.

Headaches are usually associated with stomach problems. Ginger spice is one of the best things to calm an upset stomach and take care of a headache. When I was growing up, my mother would make ginger tea for me whenever I had an upset stomach or headache, which almost always took care of the problem.

Instructions mix 1/2 tsp. of powered ginger in a cup of warm water.

Constipation / backed up colon is another cause of headaches. There is an area of the colon that is directly related to the brain and when this part of the colon gets backed up with fecal material, heachaches are certain.

To cleanse and move the colon, mix one tsp. of Celtic, Himalayan or Redmond salt into a tall glass of warm water and drink it down. Some cultures make a practice of doing this first thing every morning and people who do this almost never suffer from colon problems, headaches or any other diseases for that matter.

Also, magnesium is the mineral that keeps the bowel moving normally and healthily and it is the mineral that helps prevent many other symtoms from heart failure to diabetes and it is required for every single function of the body.

In fact, a total depletion of magnesium will kill you as quickly as a total depletion of oxygen, so be sure to daily supplement with magnesium no mater what other supplements you may take. ShopFreeMart PureMag is the brand I use and recommend, because it crosses the blood brain barrier, supporting healthy brain function, where most magnesium supplements do not.

Dehydration is perhaps the single greatest cause of headaches. When cells in the brain are fully hydrated, they are plump like a freshly picked grape. When they get dehydrated you will typically begin to suffer from headaches, mental fog and perhaps eventually even brain tumors.

Try drinking one gallon (4-liters) of distilled water with ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops for a period of 30 days and many if not all of your brain symptoms will diminish or even disappear.

Healing Frequencies

Nicola Tesla said, "If you only knew the magnificence of the numbers 3, 6 and 9, then you would have a key to the universe."

Scientists have discovered at least six (6) frequencies that have a profound healing effect upon the human body.

When applying the skein of Pythagoros to each of these frequencies, they each add up to either 3, 6 or 9. (The skein of Pythagoros is an ancient digital root method that adds up digits until only one number remains).

396 = 3+9+6 = 18 = 1+8 = (9)
417 = 4+1+7 = 12 = 1+2 = (3)
528 = 5+2+8 = 15 = 1+5 = (6)
639 = 6+3+9 = 18 = 1+8 = (9)
741 = 7+4+1 = 12 = 1+2 = (3)
852 = 8+5+2 = 15 = 1+5 = (6)
Now add the numbers in parenthesis only.
9+3+6+9+3+6 = 36 = 3+6 = (9)

Each of these frequencies has a variety of health benefits. One of the first that most people experience is finding it easier to fall asleep with their sleep being much sounder and more refreshing.

The body must get good rest in order to heal and lack of sleep also leads to chronic fatigue.

Many people experience an immediate reduction in emotional stress and physical pain in addition to other health benefits. Click the link below to see many testimonials and how you may receive similar benefits.

Heartburn

People often have heartburn (a burning sensation deep in the chest) along with indigestion. Stomach acids rising into the esophagus cause heartburn.

Heartburn, associated with stress and spicy foods, can be very painful. Prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs may relieve the symptoms temporarily, but they in turn create more acid in the body, which then becomes a vicious cycle.

An immediate remedy is to mix a half-teaspoon of cream of tartar with a half-teaspoon of baking soda. Blend into in a warm or lukewarm cup of water and sip slowly if taken when there is food in the stomach, because gas will be released as the acid is neutralized and can cause bloating pain if taken too quickly. Relief should occur within minutes of drinking the solution.

In the event that cream of tartar is not available, drink 1 tsp. of baking soda in a glass of warm water.

ShopFreeMart PureMag, D-Cal, and Immunize support healthy digestion and can therefore help prevent acidity and heartburn. If problems persist, a digestive enzyme from the health food store should be taken with meals.

Hepatitis

Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver that destroys its function and can be caused by viruses or bacteria. It is very difficult to treat but ShopFreeMart PureSilver can be beneficial. I recommend taking 1 dropper full (one squeeze of the bulb) every hour (9x daily) for 2-3 days to get a good saturation of silver in the body and then and then take 1-2 droppers of PureSilver 3x daily for the next 3-5 months. This is a four-month attack on hepatitis. Silver can be used anywhere there might be contamination or transfer of germs.

Several successful subjects have used the drugs interferon and ribavirin at their lowest prescribed doses in combination with this protocol using a Silver solution. The liver numbers were reduced to near normal in one month and back to normal in two months and symptom-free in four months.

Viruses and parasites also deplete copper in the liver, therefore it is advisable for anyone suffering from hepatitis to take a copper supplement 2x daily. ShopFreeMart PureCopper is the brand that I personally use and recommend.

I also recommend taking ShopFreeMart and Immunize to strengthen the immune system.

Keeping the body alkaline by drinking plenty of ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops and taking fresh lemon juice will also aid the body in fighting any virus, since viruses are anerobic and thrive in an acid environment.

Herpes - Genital

Herpes is a sexually transmitted disease that is caused by the Herpes simplex virus (HSV1 and HSV2). One in four people in Africa are said to be affected by it.

There is no definitive cure for Herpes, as is the case with most viral infections. This may be the reason why there is so much interest in alternative medicine to counter this disease. One alternative which is quickly gaining widespread interest is colloidal silver.

The herpes virus is responsible for causing symptoms like cold sores, and fever and when antiviral medications are administered, the virus hides itself in the nerve cells, which leads to a temporary absence of the symptoms, but once the medication wears off, the virus can reappear and often does so with a vengeance.

Furthermore, the virus adapts and becomes immune to the medication by a process of mutation, thus becoming immune to antiviral drugs. The good news is that viruses cannot create an immunity to silver.

Microorganisms, whether they are bacteria, viruses or fungi, need specific enzymes to help them breathe. Colloidal silver steals an electron from these organisms on contact, disabling this function and causing the microorganism to die.

Killing the virus with silver does not create an immunity to the virus and a person can always be reinfected.

Persons who once had Herpes may be more prone to getting it again due to a compromised immune system, dietary habits and the frequency of contact with others who are carriers of the virus.

To help prevent future outbreaks, stay well hydrated by drinking plenty of distilled water mixed with ShopFreeMart Hydration Drops, follow a healthy diet, take ShopFreeMart Siaga and Immunize to help keep your immune system strong and take PureCopper to help your liver eliminate many of the microorganisms that can make you sick before they have opportunity to flare up into a full-blown infection.

Genital herpes is a virus affecting the genital area. Applying ShopFreeMart PureSilver topically as well as taking it internally may improve the situation more quickly. Rub a small amount on the affected part of the genitals as soon as the outbreak occurs. In addition take 1 dropper (one squeeze of the bulb) every hour (9x daily)for 1-2 days and then 2-3 droppers of PureSilver 3x daily until the symptoms go away. Daily use of silver will also help prevent future outbreaks.

Herxheimer Reaction

It is common for those with chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, and other forms of infection to experience a worsening of symptoms immediately after starting treatment. Many patients are concerned by this sudden change. However, this increase in symptom intensity may actually be an indicator that the treatment is working correctly.

This natural bodily response is known as the Herxheimer reaction. Being familiar with this occurrence and methods of reducing its intensity can be beneficial for those being treated for chronic conditions, gastrointestinal disease, or toxicity.

The Herxheimer response is a natural bodily process triggered by a greater prevalence of endotoxins. These harmful substances are released when harmful microorganisms and bacteria are destroyed or die off. As damaging bacteria are destroyed, they release previously contained endotoxins into the bloodstream. This allows the toxins to be transported to the appropriate system and subsequently expelled from the body. However, rapid destruction of bacteria can cause an influx of endotoxins resulting in greater toxicity. When this occurs, the immune system responds by triggering an acute immune response resulting in inflammation that may be experienced throughout the body. This can cause worsening of current symptoms and the development of now symptoms.

The Herxheimer reaction is frequently seen during antibiotic treatments because antibiotics destroy numerous microorganisms and bacteria. Although the Herxheimer reaction is typically non-lethal, it does frequently cause temporary pain, discomfort, and worsening of symptoms. Symptom severity is often indicative of the level of inflammation triggered by the immune system.

Common symptoms that develop or worsen due to a Herxheimer response include:

  • Muscle & Joint Pain
  • Lethargy & Fatigue
  • Brain Fog & Irritability
