Below are 3 quotes from learned people that give us food for thought about keeping an open mind and looking outside the box on many “accepted” ideas:
“This ‘telephone’ has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us.” - Western Union internal memo, 1876
“I think there is world market for maybe five computers” -Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, 1943
“640K ought to be enough for anybody.” – Bill Gates, 1981
It is as hard to believe that these statements were taken seriously, as it that people once believed that the world was flat. Or that rampant cell growth, aka cancer, can only be treated with surgery, chemical poisons or radiation. This gives you some idea why the title of Lorene Benoit’s book on healing is named: The Paw Paw Program – A “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally.
Having been in the natural health field since 1974, and seriously using herbs since 1980, it is very heartening to see science supporting traditional healing more every day. Not that I need the proof, having seen life changing results with natural healing for thousands of people, but this may help move the public toward a better understanding of why herbal healing is still around after more than 5000 years. And why it is important to look outside the box and learn to take more control of our own health for a healthier, happier life!
New research from Thailand indicates curcumin may be as effective as ibuprofen in relieving osteoarthritis pain.
In a study involving 367 patients (mean age 60 years) with knee osteoarthritis, subjects were randomized into two groups who received either ibuprofen (1,200 mg/day) or a turmeric extract (75-85% total curcuminoids, 1,500 mg/day) for four weeks. Treatment efficacy was assessed via the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC®) total, WOMAC pain, WOMAC stiffness and WOMAC function scores.
Comparison of WOMAC scores showed significant improvement from baseline in both the ibuprofen and curcumin groups, with no significant difference between the two groups. While both treatments were generally well tolerated, there were fewer reports of adverse gastrointestinal side-effects in the curcumin group. These findings are consistent with previous research showing curcumin to be similar or more effective than ibuprofen in efficacy and much safer for all forms of inflammation.

Nature’s Sunshine Cure-Q-Min contains 400 mg of curcuminoids provided by the internationally recognized Curcumin C3 Complex®. This ingredient is patented for its unique composition ratio of the bioactive curcuminoids (95%) extracted from turmeric roots. The Curcumin C3 Complex® is highly regarded in the clinical literature for consistency, quality and integrity of the three main antioxidant and protective compounds found in turmeric root, collectively known as curcuminoids. It has the been the clinical trial material of choice for a significant number of research studies investigating its protective, antioxidant and inflammation-mediating effects.
Stress is far worse for cardiovascular health than cholesterol will ever be
Dr. Stephen Sinatra ( no, not Frank) , MD, FACN tells us clearly shows that emotions have a tremendous effect on our physical health. He lists five of the most common negative emotions: Anger, Sadness, Heartbreak, Stress and Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). I love that last one – anytime enough people have similar challenges, an new “disorder” is created, usually to promote a new drug to treat the new disorder.
What these 5 stressful emotions have in common is that they all produce hormones such as cortisol, adrenaline and nor-adrenaline. Among other effects, these hormones thicken the blood, and create inflammation. So instead of ingesting rat poison, aka blood thinners, consider reducing these negative emotions and supplementing your diet with a good quality Stress Formula (CA)/ Nutri Calm (US), which contain both herbs and B Vitamins. Besides helping reduce the physical effects of stress, this formula also helps lower homocysteine levels related to Cardiovascular health.
Stress related emotions also decrease essential mineral such as Potassium and Magnesium, two essential minerals which help regulate heart beat and kidney output. Chinese Mineral Chi Tonic is one of the best synergistic formulas to help balance these minerals AND deal with stress, while increasing our vital energy.
Drugs accomplish nothing long-term to reducing stress, but there are many things you can incorporate into your life that will. Read how Dr. Bruce Lipton has shown how just one emotion such as love can physically change our genetic fate.
One simple exercise to begin today is the Gratitude Attitude – a recent Harvard study stated that saying 3 specific things per day for which you are grateful have been shown to decrease our metabolic age by 10 years in only 21 days! Other tips for emotional healing are included in Chapter 6 of Lorene Benoit’s book: The Paw Paw Program – The “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally.
The data “clearly underlines adverse impacts on kidneys and liver, two of our major detoxifying organs, as well as different levels of damages to heart, adrenal glands, spleen and haematopoietic system,” reported Gilles-Eric Séralini, a molecular biologist at the University of Caen.
Human health, of course, is of primary import to us, but ecological effects are also in play. Ninety-nine percent of GMO crops either tolerate or produce insecticides. This may be the reason we see bee colony collapse and massive butterfly deaths. If GMOs are wiping out earth’s pollinators, they are far more disastrous than the threat they pose to humans and other mammals.
Vitamin C works on chicken pox, measles, polio – and without harmful side effects.
Dr. Frederick Klenner graduated from Duke University School of Medicine in 1936. In the “Clinical Guide to the Use of Vitamin C”, Dr. Lendon H. Smith outlines numerous cases on how Dr. Klenner quickly cured a variety of viral diseases by the use of intravenous vitamin C.
He reports of a ten month old baby with high fever, watery nose, dry cough, red eyes and rash characteristic of measles. Dr Klenner gave the baby 1,000 milligrams (mg) of vitamin C every four hours and the temperature dropped, the cough stopped and the rash disappeared.
Another eight-year-old child with measles developed encephalitis, became stuporous and responded only to pain. He quickly cured the child by both intravenous and oral vitamin C.
A 23 year old man with mumps developed swollen testicles, the size of tennis balls, along with overwhelming pain. After 1,000 mg of intravenous vitamin C the pain subsided. During the next 24 hours he was given 2,000 mg of intravenous C every two hours. His fever returned to normal in 36 hours and he was up and about in 60 hours.
Dr. Lendon Smith describes how Klenner discovered that intravenous C could also quickly dry up chicken pox lesions and subdue viral hepatitis.
But Dr. Klenner’s most important study involved the great polio epidemic of 1948-50. He successfully treated 60 polio victims using intravenous doses of vitamin C, up to 200,000 mg every 12 hours for four days. None developed paralysis. He soon learned that the sicker the patient the higher the dose required.
So we need to ask ourselves:
- are we prepared to accept age old remedies that are now being proven by “science”, and even those that have stood the test of millennium but may never get funded by big pharma to prove they work?
- how simple and inexpensive ate these remedies compared to the cost and damaging side effects of pharmaceuticals and mass vaccination with toxic ingredients?
- what can we do to keep our immune systems strong so that we do not offer ourselves as a host to germs and viruses that we are all exposed to on a daily basis?
- why would we not WANT to take safe and affordable steps to ensure our optimum health?
