Alfalfa, the king of plants

  • reduces cholesterol
  • reduces blood sugar levels 
  • enzymes break down food
  • thins mucas (sinus, intestinal)
  • alleviates allergies / congestion
  • promotes liver health
  • detoxifies the body
  • relieve pain and stiffness of arthritis/bursitis
  • anti-cancer activity because of isoflavone/phytoestrogens content
  • alleviate postmenopausal “hot flashes”. 1
  • If cut before it blooms, alfalfa is low in fiber and high in energy. 
  • improves soil structure and condition, and controls weeds in subsequent crop rotations.
  • Alfalfa is a good source of protein, B-complex vitamins, and certain minerals, including calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, and potassium.
  • Alfalfa could help prevent fatigue associated with vitamin/mineral deficiency or protein energy malnutrition in disadvantaged parts of the world. 
  • absorbs significant quantities of cholesterol. The direct interaction of saponins and cholesterol is thought to be responsible for the ability of alfalfa and other saponin-containing plant materials to reverse diet induced cholesterolemia in rats. Alfalfa saponins also interact with cholesterol found in intestinal cell membranes. This potentially alters cholesterol metabolism by interfering with intestinal absorption of cholesterol. 3
  • absorbs bile acids in the small intestine which then enter the large intestine and are eliminated along with steroids.  Since steroids normally facilitate cholesterol absorption, their elimination provides another possible mechanism to reverse or prevent cholesterolemia. 4

Causes? 

A variety of factors can cause the stomach to cramp or intestine to get ‘clogged’ or coated, leading to mal-absorption or allergy issues.

  • insufficient fiber: most Americans eat 5-7 grams of fiber (recommended 25-50 grams)
  • Candida overgrowth causing ‘leaky gut’ (microscopic holes in intestinal walls allowing foods to enter bloodstream and causing histamine overproduction & antibody formation)
  • insufficient pure water intake
  • too much refined sugar
  • too many processed foods stripped of live enzymes
  • inefficient enzyme production or hydrochloric acid in the stomach
  • food allergy / sensitivity causing undigested food to coat the intestine
  • more

Our Master Cleanse

In allergy, cleanses, crohn's disease, digestion, Fertility, intestine, Menstrual disorders, prevention, productivity on October 6, 2008 at 7:40 pm

 

10 days to a Better You.

 

 

Why cleanse? 

  • Cleansing makes people feel better and look younger.
  • Because of the chemicals found in food, air, water & environment, glandular systems are crippled, causing depression, obesity, fatigue, & frequently illness.
  • No other animal could survive if they ate the chemicals humans eat. 
  • Even humans that come from indigenous parts of the world become deathly ill when they adopt the “Western” diet. 
  • Our bodies are sick & polluted, & just like neglected machines, they suffer when not running at peak efficiency.  
  • Our Master Cleanse can help change that.  It’s not magic; it flushes out the waste that’s putting a huge burden on every organ in your body.
  • Dr Bernard Jensen explains how internal waste poisons the entire body:

“The heavy mucus coating in the colon thickens and becomes a host of putrefaction. The blood capillaries to the colon begin to pick up the toxins, poisons and noxious debris as it seeps through the bowel wall. All tissues and organs of the body are now taking on toxic substances. Here is the beginning of true autointoxication on a physiological level.”

~ Dr Bernard Jensen, DC, ND, Ph.D.

Thankfully Our Master Cleanse can eliminate waste and reverse lots of damage.

Solution?

Science has solved these problems by adding specific products & foods. 

our-master-cleanse-recipe   1 serving size.  Drink 6-12 a day.

Food allergies?

In allergy on September 18, 2008 at 9:28 am

 

Food allergies

  • Food allergies occur when a low immune system mistakenly responds to a food item as if it’s harmful.  In its attempt to protect, it creates specific IgE antibodies to that food.  The next time the person eats that food, the immune system releases massive amounts of chemicals and histamines.  These chemicals trigger a cascade of allergic reactions

  • Medline has a database of numerous studies linking food allergies with reactions. (Keywords: ‘food allergy asthma’ or ‘food allergy dermatitis’)

  • Another cause of food allergies can be a Candida overgrowth.  Candida can eat microscopic holes in the intestinal wall.  Foods ‘leak’ into the bloodstream and cause the body to produce antibodies against them.  Hence, the candida overgrowth must be contained and the intestinal wall must be repaired to stop this cycle and return the body to health.  How to stop candida overgrowth?

  • There are 2 types of responses to allergens, immediate reaction – IgE or delayed reaction IgG.
