Honey for migraines!

Standard

 

   Perhaps many of you have to fight with migraines, as well as my husband and I need to deal with this terrible disease. We always have been looking for a natural treatment for our problem but just recently we found one.

   A very good and respected doctor told us that as well as the Prophet (saws) used to treat this problem in his time, we should try also with honey and a little sleep. So the cure is as simple as it could be: whenever you feel that a migraine/headache starts to bother you just take a tablespoon of honey and if possible rest for a while, then you should feel as new.

  Hope it was useful and will help those of you that have the same disturbing problem as us.

Spice treatment for cancer

Standard

    

       Cancer is a leading cause in most western countries where, every year, hundreds of millions of dollars are allocated for research into new treatments. Eastern countries, where the incidence of most cancers is typically much lower, pour less money into such investigations and considerably more spices into their meals.

      Reducing our susceptibility to cancer is one of the most important measures we can take to increase our chances of good health and this is not as difficult as it might sound.  The following lines will show how- by increasing our intake of spices- we can fortify ourselves against this terrible disease.

     Cancer is caused by a range of factors, most of which follow directly from the aging process. As a result, the probability of getting cancer increases exponentially as we grow older. The wide-ranging biochemical and chromosomal changes associated with aging increase the risk of DNA damage. In addition to being less efficient at the repair and confinement of DNA damage, older bodies are less equipped to protect cells against the agents that trigger the damage to our genetic coding material. Nevertheless, people of all ages can develop cancer, and youth is not guaranteed to protect against all cancerous factors.

      Spices are valuable preventive weapons against cancer not only for their antioxidant properties,but also for the many phytochemicals contained in spices that assist the body to detoxify, excrete cancerous compounds and act against pre-cancerous cells at each stage in their progression towards tumors.

     Examples of the Anticancer Properties of Spices:

All spices– Antioxidant

Cumin, pepper– Enhance antioxidant enzymes

Cumin, garlic, ginger, pepper– Inhibit inflammation

Ginger, pepper– Inhibit pro-inflamatory cytokines

Garlic, ginger, soy, turmenic– COX-2 inhibition

Citrus, ginger, pepper– Attack tumors directly

Citrus, garlic, grapes, green tea, mustard– Induce apoptosis

Brassicas, citrus, green tea, soy– Modulate autocrine loops/cell cycles

Green tea, turmenic,soy– Inhibit autogenesis

Brassicas, caraway, cumin– Neutralise carcinogenic toxins

Grapes, green tea– Reduce activated protein

Green tea, turmenic– Inhibit telomerase

Turmenic– Inhibit JAK-STAT pathway

Soy, turmenic– Inhibit estrogen dependant tumors

Green tea, soy, turmenic– Enhance chemo- and radiotherapy.
