To the chagrin of many God
has not made any restrictions on the eating of meat or vegetables. However the
Word does tell us that many foods due to the producer and the choice of foods can
cause various health problems. Also believers in Love respect the opinions of
other believers. However the choice of meat or vegetables has no bearing on
But meats that are high in fat (hog guts, hog ears, hot tails, and hog feet) can increase and cause various heath problems. Follow God and not man. Thus you will live Now and Later.
Peace and love,

HEALING AND GOOD HEALTH
Available Forms Of Garlic
In the name of Jehovah God, Master of the universe,
Ruler of the earth.
Garlic products are made
from whole fresh garlic, fresh or dried garlic cloves, or the oil of garlic. But the amount of allicin in commercial products
can vary, depending on how the product was prepared, or on the
percentage of active compounds in fresh garlic cloves. Not all garlic contains
the same amount of active ingredients.
Avoid eating too much
garlic because it might give you a stomachache. Also, if you handle too much fresh or dried garlic, you might get
burn-like skin lesions or other skin irritations. Garlic has blood-thinning
properties. If you know that your blood clots slowly, don't take large
therapeutic doses of garlic. This is especially important if you're
going to have surgery. Too much garlic can increase your risk for
bleeding during or after the operation.
There have been reports of
a possible interaction between garlic and warfarin that could increase your risk of bleeding. Therefore, if you are
taking anticoagulant (blood- thinning) medications such as aspirin,
warfarin, dipyridamole, and indomethacin, you should refrain from consuming
large amounts of garlic, either fresh or commercially processed.
Flaxseed has been used
throughout the world for food, medicine, and fiber to make clothes, fishnets, and other products. The ancient
Egyptians grew flax thousands of years ago, and it is now found
throughout the world.
Flax is a rich source of
dietary fiber that can help lower cholesterol levels. Flaxseed oil helps improve cardiovascular health. Long before people
knew about the health benefits of flaxseed oil, they used whole and
milled flaxseeds as a laxative. The laxative effect comes from mucilage.
Flaxseed contains both
omega-3 fatty acids and omega-6 fatty acids. Flaxseed is nature's richest storehouse of omega-3 fatty acids.
Flaxseed contains more than twice as much omega-3 oil as fish oils and
it costs less than fish oils ounce for ounce. Omega-3 oil has been shown
to reduce the risk of arteriosclerosis. Flaxseed also contains plant nutrients
like phytoestrogens. These are natural estrogen-like substances that can
lessen the discomfort of menopause.
You can benefit from
adding flaxseed to your diet if you have elevated cholesterol, heart disease, high blood pressure, psoriasis, eczema, rheumatoid
arthritis, ulcerative colitis, or diabetes.
Taking flaxseed may reduce
cancer risk. This is because flaxseed contains the richest sources of lignan building blocks, which play a major role in
preventing cardiovascular diseases and cancer. New research indicates
that the lignans in flaxseed have both short-term and long-term protective effects
against colon cancer.
Flax is an annual plant
that thrives in deep moist soils rich in sand, silt, and clay. The seeds in the flax plants are filled with flaxseed oil,
sometimes called linseed oil. (Note: Commercial-grade Linseed oil
commonly used in furniture restoration is not meant for human consumption.) The
husks of the seeds are rich in mucilage. Both the seed oil and mucilage have
many nutritional and therapeutic properties.
What's It Made Of?
Flax products are made from
the seeds found inside the fruits. The seeds contain fatty oils called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and linoleic acid. ALA
is the omega-3 oil in flaxseed. Flax also contains other important
substances like lignans, which may protect you against some types of cancer.
You can buy several types
of products made from flaxseed. Ripe seeds, linseed cakes, powder, capsules, and flaxseed oil are all available at
health food or grocery stores. Flaxseed oil can be purchased in liquid
form (to use in preparing food) or as soft gels that you can take as a dietary
How to Take It
Flaxseed: 1 tbsp. whole or bruised seed with 150-mL liquid two to three times per day for gastritis and enteritis. 2 to 3 tbsp. bulk seeds taken with 10 times the amount of water as a bulk laxative.
Poultice: 100 g soaked in boiling water for 10 to 15 minutes, strained, placed in cheesecloth and applied. Decoction (liquid prepared by boiling down herb in water): 15 g of whole seed simmered in 1-cup water for 10 to 15 minutes.
Flaxseed oil: 1 tbsp. oil
daily, added to foods such as salad dressing the best way to take flaxseed is to add it to foods like cereal,
salads, or yogurt. You should not use flaxseed oil for cooking because
heat destroys the healthful fatty acids. If you suffer from constipation, gastritis
(stomach inflammation), or enteritis (inflammation of the small intestine), try
adding flaxseed products to various dishes.
