Japanese Water Cure 100% Effective!

Friday, June 29th, 2012


You have heard it before: Drink lots of water to stay healthy.

Now, this from Japan:
My Japanese room-mate has told me that it is fashionable in Japan to drink water immediately upon arising, because Japanese research has shown that this “Water Treatment” can effect a 100% cure for a number of diseases, including:



hemorrhoids (piles)


ear, nose, throat disease

kidney and urinary tract diseases

body aches

eye disease




menstrual and other female reproductive disorders





heart disease



heart palpitations



high blood pressure

• Upon arising in the morning, before you brush your teeth, drink 640 ml (approximately 2-1/2 C) water.
• After drinking the water, brush your teeth and gargle, as desired, but wait 45 minutes before eating or drinking anything else.
• After 45 minutes, eat your normal breakfast.
• Avoid eating or drinking for 2 hours during the treatment period.

NOTE: The elderly or infirm, who cannot tolerate 4 glasses of water at once should build up their water intake gradually, from 1/2 C to the recommended 2-1/2 C before breakfast.

Although there are no side effects to this totally natural treatment, in the beginning, you may notice an increased frequency of urination until the body accustoms itself to the new pattern of water intake.

for alleviation or cure

• Arthritis patients should follow the 3 days during the week 1, then begin the full daily treatment in week 2.
• Cancer – 180 days
• Constipation – 10 days
• Diabetes – 30 days
• Gastritis – 10 days
• High Blood Pressure – 30 days
• Tuberculosis – 90 days

Japanese researchers suggest that the Water Treatment be added permanently to one’s daily routine for ongoing benefit.

Chemo was and is a very private thing…and it is hard for someone to explain the magnitude of how they feel,when it is all new to them also….If a friend,shuts you out..there is  a reason you didn’t understand…fatigue steps in fast as if a pendulum swings from one extreme to another,but not just in two directions,it is more varied as it is so many things affected by the BIG MEDICINES and treatment…I only saw one result..a WIN-WIN situation…as you make a conscious decision to say to the universe either I WANT TO LIVE or just give up…there is no choose life or surrender…

Six foods that ward off aging

Sunday, September 28th, 2008

There might not be a fountain of youth, but there might be a pantry of youth. People who stock up on the right foods can turn back the clock, according to Karen Ansel, a dietitian and author of “The Anti-Aging Diet” story in last month’s Family Circle. Ditch red meat, full-fat dairy, soft drinks, cookies, cakes, white flour and fried and packaged foods, she advises. Add these to your diet instead:

Spinach: It’s loaded with Vitamin K, which can improve bone density and lower the risk of hip fracture. Plus, it’s the No. 1 source of zeaxanthin and lutein, nutrients that soak up harmful light before it can damage the retinas in your eyes, meaning spinach helps to prevent macular degeneration and blindness.

Strawberries: They are rich in polyphenols, which improve memory and communication by promoting signals between cells.

Curry powder: It’s full of the antioxidant curcumin, which wards off Alzheimer’s disease by preventing the growth of amyloid plaques, which are toxic to brain cells. In parts of India, where it is eaten daily, the Alzheimer’s rate is one-fourth that of the U.S.

Tomatoes: They’re packed with lycopene, which protects skin from the oxidation that results from sun damage and leads to wrinkles. Adding a little olive oil helps you absorb lycopene even better.

Almonds: They’re brimming with vitamin E, which neutralizes free radicals in your muscles and nervous system and enhances speed, coordination and balance.

Sleep Deprived Article

Maria Hetem, the 47-year-old owner of a dog grooming salon based in Lebanon, N.J., noticed changes in the way she was sleeping over a decade ago but never thought to talk to a doctor about it.

Instead, she sought out medical advice pertaining to her frequent headaches but doctors were never able to determine the cause. Hetem attributed the fact that she never felt well rested and was frequently waking up at night to the growth of her business and her age.

Eventually, thanks to the suggestion of a friend, Hetem got a sleep test and found she had sleep apnea, a sleep disorder that disrupts breathing and can cause headaches. She guesses she’s had the condition, which causes sleep deprivation, most of her adult life.

“You just start to think, ‘This is normal,’ until somebody points out that it isn’t,” she says.

In Pictures: 14 Reasons You’re Not Sleeping

Hetem’s situation is an all-too common one for millions worldwide. In the U.S. alone, it’s estimated that one in 10 adults struggle with chronic insomnia, not to mention the one in three who occasionally deal with the condition and those who suffer from other sleep disorders.

In recent years, though, thanks to media attention and educational campaigns, there’s been a growing awareness about the importance of sleep and its impact on our health and productivity.

But experts say many people still have no idea what is keeping them up at night.

That’s because those who’ve been dealing with sleep difficulties for long periods of time often forget the initial catalyst or don’t realize the extent of the problem, says Dr. Ana Krieger, director of the NYU School of Medicine Sleep Disorders Center and co-leader of the extended-stay chain AKA’s Sleep School seminars.

Making Matters Worse
Beyond not recognizing what’s wrong, many people also unknowingly learn self-perpetuating behaviors or come up with solutions that hurt more than help.

“When you look at people who are having problems sleeping, a lot of the logical things they are doing to fix the situation actually end up making it worse,” says Philip Gehrman, an assistant professor of psychology at University of the Sciences in Philadelphia who treats people with insomnia.

That list includes taking naps, going to bed early and staying in bed when you can’t get to sleep. While it makes sense to take a nap if you’re sleep deprived, Gehrman says the practice interferes with your overall sleep drive and makes it harder for you to fall asleep at night. Going to bed early may seem like a way to get some extra sleep, but not if your new bedtime goes against your circadian rhythm, which prevents you from being able to sleep equally well at all times of the day. Likewise, staying in bed when sleep eludes you tends to only increase your performance anxiety, making it harder for you to get the rest you need.

Got a pressing health question? Weigh in. E-mail and your question may be answered in a future story.

New research shows that a few other factors might be having more of an effect on your ability to sleep well than you realize. A collaborative study by researchers at the Brooklyn Health Disparities Center at SUNY Downstate Medical Center and Brooklyn-based Long Island University found that women who worry about cancer, none of whom had a history of the disease, have a nearly 50% greater chance of having trouble sleeping. A new study out of the University of Pittsburgh also shows that there’s a link between the quality of a couple’s marriage and a woman’s risk of having sleep problems. The unhappier the marriage, the higher the risk, says author and University of Pittsburgh psychologist Wendy Troxel.

You can’t discount the impact of the tanking economy, either, says Dr. Carol Ash, a board-certified sleep and pulmonary specialist and medical director of the New Jersey-based Somerset Medical Center’s Sleep for Life Center. In the past six months, Ash says she’s seen a jump in the number of patients visiting her practice who find themselves awake at night due to worries about their companies downsizing.

They’re not the only ones bringing their work to bed with them at night. The National Sleep Foundation’s 2008 Sleep In America Poll, a national survey of 1,000 working adults, found that nearly one-quarter of respondents did work relating to their job within an hour of going to bed a few nights a week. The habit, experts say, doesn’t give you a chance to unwind and ease into sleep mode. Even computers need a little time to shut down.

Of course, not all causes of sleep problems can be fixed by rearranging your schedule or revamping your diet. Many insomniacs need cognitive behavioral therapy, a treatment requiring multiple sessions that aims to change the way you feel and behave when it comes to sleep. A tendency to be a light sleeper and being a new parent can be hard challenges to overcome too, unless you like white noise machines or can afford a great night nurse.

Experts say that’s OK–we’re all bound to encounter sleep disruptions from time to time throughout our lives. Just make sure you don’t let the problem go on for too long.

“There will be periods in life where you have to give up sleep so you can accomplish something big,” Krieger says. “Just know that you can only do that for a certain period of time or there will be long-term consequences.”

Cancer Update from John Hopkins1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billi on. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just mea ns the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime

3. When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immun e system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cell s and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.
7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9 When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.


a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in ver y small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color. Better alternative is Bragg’s aminos or sea salt.B. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk cancer cells are being starved.

C. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

D. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables an d juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

E. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine.Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid kn own to xins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes . Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body’s killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence,
Essiac, anti-oxid ants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body’s own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body’s normal method of disp osing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spiri t. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor . Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.
16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.


1. No plastic containers in micro.

2. No water bottles in freezer.

3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well.
Dioxin chemicals causes cancer, especially breast cancer.
Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies.
Don’t freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic.
Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins a nd how bad they are for us.. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers.
This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else.
Paper isn’t bad but you don’t know what is in the paper. It’s just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper . The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the mi c rowave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.
