4. ***Get KELP and stock up on it DO NOT wait before it sells out.***

5. Keep yourself hydrated.

6. Milk thistle to detox during radiation exposure may need to take up to 6 weeks.

You can use this juice recipe for rehydration, it is very powerful.

2 apples
4 stalks of celery

Adding a handful of chicory and a 1/4 wedge of a washed Idaho potato with it adds detoxifying and oxygenation properties to this drink.

The max adult dosage of Kelp is 43mg. Be careful when High dosing during Radiation exposure. Some side effects of overdosing include but not limited to: Fatigue, Nausea, Memory loss, hair loss, irregular menstrual cycle.

Supplements:
High Doses of Vitamin E
Fish Oil

There are several types of Iodine supplements you may hear about: potassium iodine, Lugol’s and nascent. All are suitable in providing the thyroid with enough iodine to keep radioactive iodine from binding, in most cases. Foods that contain high levels of naturally occurring iodine are seaweeds–particularly kelp. Many salts are also iodized, and sea salt especially, is also helpful in detoxification and can expedite removal of radioactive iodine from the body.

Chlorella, which is a type of single-celled green algae, is very high in chlorophyll, and has been shown to neutralize toxins in the body, often being used when someone has mercury poisoning. Taking recommended doses of chlorella when exposed to radiation-even after a visit to the X-ray machine-is a good way to speed up the detoxification.

The reishi mushroom is considered the King of Chinese medicine because of its incredible immune boosting properties. It is not your pizza topping kind of fungus. Boosting your immunity with supermushrooms like reishi will help your body defend itself against toxins and may reduce the impact after exposure to radiation.

Ashwaganda, or Indian ginseng, is a powerful Ayuvedic tonic herb that helps the body deal with stress. American and Siberian Ginseng can do this tool Even if you don’t feel like you’re under stress, when your immune system is fighting something foreign and potentially harmful, it stresses the entire body. So using adaptogens like ashwaganda and ginseng can enhance your overall body immunity performance. Likewise, vitamin C¬† is an indispensable nutrient for boosting immunity and helping the body trigger its own defenses. It strengthens cells by acting almost like cement or glue, making it difficult for radioactive or cancer cells to penetrate and corrupt healthy cells. You cannot overdose on vitamin C, and Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Linus Pauling, used it in incredibly high doses-over 100,000 milligrams daily-to treat serious illnesses such as cancer.

Coconut oil is very supportive of the thyroid gland and has been recommended for cancer chemo patients. It’s got antifungal and antiviral properties too, which can help the body defend against contamination. It’s also advised to use it topically on any skin that may be in danger of exposure to radiation, and that includes the sun’s ultra violet radiation.

Radiation can also increase our susceptibility to dehydration. And when we’re fighting off any unwelcome guests, it’s critical that we stay hydrated so that our body’s natural defenses are working properly. Even if you don’t feel thirsty (that means you’re already dehydrated, BTW), drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.

WHAT DOES IT DO?

Amongst other things, cider vinegar is very effective in detoxifying various organs in to body together with the blood stream. Hence it is a purifier, as it has a means of breaking down fatty, mucous and phlegm deposits within the body. It therefore, promotes the health of the vital organs of the body e.g. kidneys, bladder, liver etc., by preventing an excessively alkaline urine. Cider vinegar also promotes digestion, assimilation and elimination and it neutralizes any toxic substance taken into the body. There have been a number of instances where people who had taken a mixture of cider vinegar and water before a meal were unaffected by diarrhea, or digestive upsets, while their companions who ate the same meal were. Hence the cider vinegar seemed t neutralize the harmful substances in the food eaten.

POTASSIUM

Apple cider vinegar has a potent supply of potassium, which has become so widely acclaimed in the helping of various complaints including: running nose. Excessive mucous formation, watery eyes, sinus and catarrhal troubles. Teeth decay and the splitting of fingernails are also signs of potassium deficiency, which are remedied by taking cider vinegar. Potassium is essential for the normal growth of the body and for the replacement of worn-out tissues, which depend upon the presence of this mineral. It is a important to the soft tissues, as calcium is to the bones and teeth and it also retards the hardening of the blood vessels. As potassium is so important in the healthy growth of a plant, animal and human, a deficiency of this mineral will produce such tendencies as callous formations on the soles of the feet, or the failure to replace worn-out tissues as observed in the loss of hair. Tests have proven that a soil deficient in this mineral-salt will produce anemic and undersized plants, however, when potassium is introduced into the soil the plant becomes sturdier and increases in height. This is also the case with animals, where potassium which was fed to livestock, in the form of cider vinegar, improved their appearance and stamina. Humans too, can benefit with this increased potassium intake. Especially where children are slow developers and appear undersized. A few teaspoons of cider vinegar taken with water each morning will show tremendous results. The best way to introduce cider vinegar to the family, is to substitute it for the ordinary table vinegar and use it in the cooking. Potassium acts as a restraining influence upon those who are over-excitable and nervous. It draws fluid back into the cells, for when potassium is lacking the body cells shrink and their normal activity is restricted.

THE USES OF CIDER VINEGAR

A number of outstanding authorities have proven the therapeutic advantages of using cider vinegar fr numerous complaints ranging from obesity and overweight to arthritis. Besides the therapeutic benefits derived from taking cider vinegar therapy, as outlined in this book, it can also be used for a number of other purposes; salad dressing, pickling, a flavor in cooking etc. It also makes a very refreshing drink, hot or cold, with or without honey – this should take the place of normal tea and coffee, which are so habit-forming and unnecessary commodities. Try using cider vinegar where lemon juice is required in making pawpaw for a refreshing breakfast, or just use on potato chips!

EFFECTS OF CIDER VINEGAR ON THE BLOOD

When the blood is deficient in some minerals or biochemical salt, ill-health is the outcome; boils break out, suppurating blisters become apparent, pimples appear on the face etc. It has been found however, that cider vinegar helps with the cleansing as well as the clothing of the blood. Oxidation of the blood is very important and cider vinegar is again an effective treatment for this. Besides introducing the important minerals into the blood stream, as mentioned above, cider vinegar also helps in the clotting of blood. This is of tremendous help to those people who are commonly termed ‘bleeders’, as they live their lives in fear of cutting themselves due to the bloods inability to clot, and it will also enhance the healing process.

AILMENTS

Arthritis

Use the cider vinegar and honey treatment for arthritis and also apply cider vinegar externally to painful joints. This entails drinking a glass of water with two teaspoons of cider vinegar and two teaspoons of honey three times a day. Local treatment can also be given by soaking the arthritic hand, or foot in a strong, comfortably hot solution of cider vinegar for ten minutes, two or three times a day – (a quarter of a cup of cider vinegar to one and a half cups of water). Arthritic knees can be attended to by making a poultice – soak the cloth in a mixture of cider vinegar and water, (as per above mixture) wring out and wrap it around the joint, then secure with a dry cloth to retain heat. When the wet cloth cools, it should be wrung out in the hot solution and applied afresh. Repeat several times, twice daily.

Asthma

One tablespoon of cider vinegar added to a glass of water should be taken in sips for half an hour. After a further half an hour has elapsed the treatment should be repeated. The wheezing should lessen in intensity quite considerably. However, should wheezing still persist a second glass of the same mixture should be taken. Deep breathing exercises are also a beneficial treatment.

Blood Loss

It has been discussed above how cider vinegar helps in preventing blood losses. In any circumstances where the flow of blood is too free and is too persistent, then two teaspoons of cider vinegar in a glass of water, three times a day will aid in restoring the natural clotting properties of the blood.

Colitis

The cider vinegar and honey treatment has been used effectively in the treatment for colitis. Take the normal dosage of two teaspoons cider vinegar and honey with water, three times a day. An enema of a teaspoonful or more of molasses is also very helpful.

Coughs

There are many types of coughs for various reasons, and these should be treated with reference to their nature and intensity.

In the evening it would be an idea to h ave this mixture by your bed so that it can be sipped during the evening if an attack presents itself.

Diarrhea

It has been mentioned above how cider vinegar helps with the digestion, assimilation and elimination of food, and that it is an antiseptic to the intestines and the whole of the digestive tract. Due to it’s healing properties, diarrhea can be controlled in a very short time, (that is unless some serious physical disorder is apparent). The treatment being, one teaspoonful of cider vinegar in a glass of water should be taken before and in between meals, approximately six glasses during the course of on the part of the body to eliminate some poison which is irritating the digestive tract, on no account should any drugs be taken to suppress these healing symptoms – on the other hand the cider vinegar will lessen the intensity, but will allow the natural course of elimination to take place.

Dizziness

Two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar together with two teaspoons of honey in a glass of hot or cold water three times a day should help this annoying occurrence quite considerably. However, one should never expect instant insults, as nature works slowly, yet very effectively. You will notice a lessened intensity while you progress.

Ear Discharge

Eczema

Take the usual dosage of cider vinegar and honey in a glassful of water three times a day, with meals. An application of well diluted cider vinegar can also be applied to the skin several times daily; one teaspoonful to half a cup of water. Under no circumstances should salt be taken, as this aggravates the eczema condition considerably. There is usually a potassium deficiency in those people suffering from eczema.

Eyes (Tired and sore)

The cider vinegar therapy together with honey is the essential ingredients here. Two teaspoons of each taken in a glassful of water, three times a day. This mixture retards the onset of tired and sore eyes which are usually apparent in later life, as it supplies them with those vital elements essential to their health and functioning.

Fatigue

Chronic fatigue is a warning that the body needs some attention. Most people suffering from chronic fatigue do not have enough good, sound sleep. Either they go to bed too late, or they are one of those people who just need more sleep than most. It is better to get as many hours in bed before midnight as possible. To remedy a poor quality sleep, honey is highly recommended, as it acts as a sedative to the body. Twenty minutes after the honey has been taken into the mouth it has been digested and absorbed into the body. This is because it is a predigested sugar, which has been digested in the stomach of the honey bee, and there fore requires no effort on the part of the human stomach for digestion. Keep the following mixture by your bedside to be taken as indicated: three teaspoons of apple cider vinegar to a cup of honey. take two teaspoons of the mixture before retiring. This should induce sound sleep within an hour; if however, you have been unable to sleep within this period repeat the dosage.

As mentioned earlier there have been many cases where people who were in the habit of taking cider vinegar regularly never suffer any side effects from food poisoning. The cider vinegar has an antiseptic quality,which seems to render noxious food harmless.

Hair Loss

The falling out of hair is primarily due to a tissue salt deficiency, thus cider vinegar with its ‘wonder products’ will re-establish a natural balance, and supply the deficiencies where needed. Therefore, by taking the cider vinegar treatment the hair will maintain its natural growth. it will cease to fall out and grow more rapidly and thickly. This will take approximately two months, so perseverance is needed. The dosage is one teaspoonful of cider vinegar to a glass of water to be taken with or between meals. Cider vinegar can also be used externally for the treatment of dandruff, see under heading of External Treatments.

Hay fever

This ailment is marked by watery eyes, sneezing and running nose, in other words there is an excess of fluid which the body is drastically trying to offload. For an effective relief, honey and cider vinegar should be utilized which will bring excellent results. A tablespoonful of honey should be need in the hay-fever season. The ordinary dosage of cider vinegar and honey should then be taken as two teaspoons of cider vinegar and two of honey in a glass of water, three times a day. This dosage should be maintained during the entire hay-fever season.

Headaches

There are several types of headache, caused by various reasons. Some are associated with organic disorders, such as kidney troubles, other are known as psychogenic, or tension headaches. Then we have the most annoying of all; the migraine  headache. many people have had relief from headaches by the use of honey. Two teaspoons taken at each meal may well prevent an attack. Another effective means is to take apple cider vinegar. Equal parts of cider vinegar and water should be placed in a small basin on the stove, allowing it to boil slowly. When the fumes begin to rise from the basin lean your head over it until the fumes are comfortably strong. Inhale for approximately 50 to 80 breaths. Generally this alleviates the headache considerably, if not entirely.

Hemorrhages

As previously pointed out cider vinegar helps the blood to clot more easily. When a person who regularly drinks cider vinegar cuts himself, the wound will dry up almost instantaneously, as there will be no profuse bleeding. If, however, wounds do not heal quickly, the following procedure should be undertaken; two teaspoons of cider vinegar taken in half or a whole glass of water at mealtimes as well as in between, therefore six glasses in all are imbibed. For Extra efficiency a very weak solution of cider vinegar with water can be applied to the sore, wound or cut. Poultices of cider vinegar can be applied to stubborn open wound.

Hiccups

These have been know to be eradicated by drinking a teaspoon of cider vinegar neat! Alternatively cider vinegar with water can be taken before mealtimes to prevent this occurrence.

High Blood Pressure

There are a number of reasons why a person suffers from this common yet serious condition. As mentioned earlier, health will be maintained only if one is prepared to adjust his living and eating habits. Cider vinegar is not the cure-all of man’s suffering, it is only one of the many means towards a healthier and happier life. In the case of High Blood Pressure, one;s eating habits must be taken stock of to ensure a speedy and effective recovery. Emphasis is on the natural, organically grown foods which are given to us in the form of fresh fruits, vegetables and honey – rather than the high protein foods which include eggs, meat, milk, cheese, nuts, beans etc. A balance must be maintained between the proteins and carbohydrates and one should definitely not over indulge on these protein and starchy foods. Wheat products should also be eliminated completely, together with salt which is very detrimental to the health, especially for those suffering from high blood pressure. The following dosage should be taken daily: two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and honey in a glass of water – up to three to four times a day.

Insomnia

There are also a number causes as to why people suffer from insomnia, however, there have been excellent results with the cider vinegar and honey treatment as follow: two teaspoons of cider vinegar and two of honey in a glass of water to be taken before retiring. It would also be beneficial to have a glass of this mixture by the bedside to sip it as needed. Under no circumstances should drugs be resorted to, as these are both harmful and habit-forming. Insomnia is due to a deficiency of phosphate of potash and phosphate of iron, this combination can be found in the biochemic salt known as kall phos, which can be obtained from your local health shop.

Kidneys and Bladder

Due to the eliminative nature of cider vinegar, the kidneys and bladder can benefit tremendously by flushing’, which they receive when the following cider vinegar therapy is undertaken: two teaspoons of cider vinegar in a glass of water six times a day. it would be beneficial to drink cider vinegar in each drink. Comfrey tea, first thing in the morning with a teaspoon of cider vinegar will also create a sufficient cleansing action. Inflammation of the kidneys, called pyelitis, in which pus cells are present in the urine, will generally clear up with the above-mentioned treatment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Homemade Popcorn

Before microwaves and hot-air poppers, popcorn was made over the stove top in a large pan or pot. While the process involves hot oil, making homemade popcorn is still easy to do and far cheaper than throwing a processed bag into the microwave. Best of all, making your own popcorn allows you to control how much butter, salt or other toppings you put on top, allowing you to make the perfect bowl of popcorn for your family movie night.

Ingredients:

3 quart pan or pot with fitted lid
Large popcorn bowl
4 tablespoons of cooking oil (vegetable oil works great)
1/2 c. popcorn kernels
1/4 c. real butter (optional)
Salt, to taste

Instructions:

Pour the oil into the pan, making sure the entire bottom is evenly coated. Add another tablespoon of oil, if necessary.

Heat the pan over medium heat. Drop in two or three kernels of corn to test the temperature. When the kernels pop, the oil is not enough.

Slide the pan over the heat back and forth to keep the popcorn kernels from burning. Do not remove the lid of the pan while the popcorn is popping. Continue to slide the pan during cooking.

Listen to the amount of popping. When the popping slow to about two seconds between pops, remove the pan from the heat.

Pour the popped corn immediately into the large popcorn bowl. Season with real melted butter and salt to taste, or any other toppings. The popcorn can also be used for making popcorn balls. Makes 16 cups of popped corn.

Tips & Warnings:

* The butter melts best at 50% power if warmed in the microwave

* Do not remove the lid while popping your popcorn

* Do not look directly into the pan; splattering oil and steam may burn you

Easy Pasta Noodles

1 c. All-Purpose flour
2 Beaten Eggs
pinch of sea salt

1. Whisk together the flour and salt in a medium bowl.

2. Making a well in the flour. Crack open each egg and drop into the well, lightly beat eggs with a fork and slowly incorporate the flour into the beaten eggs until thoroughly mixed together.

3. Drop dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead for 3 minutes until smooth.

4. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

5. Take dough out of refrigerator and roll out on your floured counter to 1/8 inch thickness (very thin) and cut noodles with a pizza cutter. Cut as long or as wide as you desire.

6. Once noodles are cut let dry on counter for 24hrs. When noodles are completely dry store in an air-tight container in your pantry for one month or freezer for up to 3 to 4 months. Just be sure to thaw your noodles out before cooking.

Whole Wheat Pasta

Most people assume it’s hard to make your own noodles. If you are one of those people, please try mixing these up really quickly and find out how EASY they are to make!

Ingredients:

2-1/3 c. Whole Wheat Flour (or freshly ground flour)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 Beaten Eggs
1/3 c. water
1 teaspoon olive oil

1. Mix the flour and salt together in a bowl and make a little ‘pit’ in the middle

2. Beat your eggs in a separate bowl, then pour them into the flour mixture. Add the water (or buttermilk) and olive oil. Stir well until ingredients are combined.

3. Dump out onto a floured surface and knead it a little bit to get the ingredients combined well.

4. Make sure your surface has a LOT of flour all over it so that your noodles won’t stick when you roll out the dough. Sticky noodles are not fun.

5. Use a well floured rolling pin and roll and roll and roll until your noodle dough is almost hanging off the side of your counter top. Or at least until it is very thin, about 1/8 inch in thickness. You may need to keep tossing some flour under the dough as you roll to keep it from sticking.

6. I use a pizza cutter to long strips in my noodle dough. Cut your noodles any length you want.

7. Once you’ve cut your noodles you can either use them right away, or you can let them dry so that you can store them and have them ready for when you need them.

You can use a dehydrator to dry the noodles, but I just leave them on the counter top to dry. (Dry them for 24 hrs) You may also need to turn the noodles over after a few hours so that the under side can dry.

Once noodles are completely dry, store them in an air tight container in your pantry. They will stay good for up to a month. They can also be frozen…just let them thaw a little before you cook them.
