Honey Cinnamon Remedies – Arthritis Bad Breath Bladder Cancer Cholesterol Eczema Indigestion Immune System

This is an interesting list of remedies using two easy to get ingredients.  Hubby had candida at one time and was advised by an ayurvedic doctor to abstain from honey, and he did, and he did get rid of the candida.



Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread, chapatti, or other bread, instead of jelly and jam and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack. Also those who already had an attack, if they do this process daily, are kept miles away from the next attack.

Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada, various nursing homes have reacted patients successfully and have found that as you Age, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalizes the arteries and veins.

Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder.

Make a paste of one teaspoon of cinnamon powder and five teaspoons of honey and apply on the aching tooth. This may be applied three times a day until the tooth stops aching.

Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of cinnamon powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol patient, were found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10% within 2 hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken 3 times a day, any chronic cholesterol is cured. As per information received in the said journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.

Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder daily for 3 days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold and clear the sinuses.

Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears stomach ulcers from the root.

According to the studies done in India & Japan, it is revealed that if honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.

Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacteria and viral diseases.

Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food, relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.

A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural ingredient which kills theinfluenza germs and saves the patient from flu.

Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Take 4 teaspoons of honey, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder and 3 cups of water and boil to make like tea. Drink 1/4 cup, 3 to 4 times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age.

No Yeast No Wheat Biscuit


This is a staple in my house – made from rye, none of that enriched nonsense, no wheat, no yeast.  It’s great for dips, salsa, hummus, sliced avocado (sprinkled with Braggs Amino Acid), or almond butter.

Easiest Vegetable Stew

A bunch of vegetables and two bottled sauces from Trader Joe’s.  I do this after lunch, set it on the stove to simmer and come home to a smashing dinner.

My usual veggies:

frozen green peas

diced carrots

strips of zucchini

fava beans

2 to 3 onions  (two mediums or 3 smaller ones)

lots of minced ginger

lots of minced garlic

1 bottle of Trader Joe’s Organic Marinara Sauce

1 bottle of Trader Joe’s Organic Roasted Tomatillo Salsa


Saute ginger, garlic and onions in coconut oil, season with some sea salt; when are brown or almost brown (this gives stew a fantastic flavor), add vegetables, mix, add sauces, add about 4 cups of water (the simmering will use up quite a bit of water.)

Cover, bring to a boil, simmer for about 4 hours.

Turn the heat off and let the stew sit for maybe another 20 minutes, add some hot sauce or hot spices (like shichimi togarashi – because I have a whole bag of it and it is not from China but Japan).  Taste.  Usually, I don’t think the dish needs extra seasoning (if it does, I would use Braggs Amino Acid, sea salt.)  The peas, onions and carrots sweeten the dish, reduces the sharp acid of the tomatoes in the sauces and overall, the veggies complement.

Serve over rice, pasta, or with crisp bread.

Stearates In Vitamins/Supplements – How Healthy Are Your Vitamins?

Check your supplements or vitamins for Magnesium Stearate,  Calcium Stearate or Stearate Acid and read the following article.

For any vitamin, look instead for the herb alternative.  Example, instead of Vitamin C, take Amla Berry, Acerola, etc.  Question where your Vitamin C came from, how was it processed?  Note the word “processed”.

Machines produce those pretty tablets or capsules at high speed the and  Stearates added enable these tablets/capsules to speed through the machines without gumming.

This process using Stearates to give your body supplement end up giving you toxicity and decreased absorption.


Beware of Additives in Supplements

Stearates – Hydrogenated Fats Used in the Production of Most Supplements– Decrease Absorption and May Be Toxic
and Immunosuppressive

by Ron Schmid, ND, ©2003

(page 1 of 1)    Articles Home

Magnesium stearate, stearic acid and calcium stearate, made by hydrogenating cottonseed or palm oil, are used throughout the supplements industry as lubricants. They are added to the raw materials in supplements so that production machinery will run at maximum speeds. These fatty substances coat every particle of the nutrients, so the particles will flow rapidly. This ensures that production schedules will meet profit targets.

Cottonseed oil has the highest content of pesticide residues of all commercial oils; cotton crops are heavily sprayed. In the hydrogenation process, the oil is subjected to high heat and pressure in the presence of a metal catalyst for several hours, creating a hydrogenated saturated fat. Hydrogenated vegetable fats contain altered molecules derived from fatty acids that may be toxic. The metal catalyst used in the hydrogenation process may also contaminate the stearates produced (see Erasmus, Fats and Oils).

While toxicity is one problem, decreased absorption is another. In a study published in the journal Pharmaceutical Technology, the percent dissolution for capsules after 20 minutes in solution went from 90% without stearates to 25% with stearates. This delays the absorption of nutrients. Individuals with impaired digestion may have particular difficulty absorbing nutrients coated with stearates.

Another problem with stearates: concentrated doses of stearic acid suppress the action of T-cells, a key component of the immune system. The article “Molecular basis for the immunosuppressive action of stearic acid on T cells” appeared in the journal Immumology in 1990.

  • Companies that manufacture and transport magnesium stearate must file a Material Safety Data Sheet with the Environmental Protection Agency because concentrated magnesium stearate is classified as a hazardous substance.
  • Its uses are listed as “ammunition, dusting powder, paint and varnish drier, binder, and emulsifier.” The section “Human Health Data” states that “Inhalation may irritate the respiratory tract” and “Acute ingestion may cause gastroenteritis.”
  • Under the heading “Regulatory Information,” the paper states, “This product is hazardous under the criteria of the Federal OSHA Hazard Communication Standard.” This information may be viewed at the web site
  • Supplements manufacturers pass off magnesium stearate as a benign form of magnesium. Magnesium stearate is the magnesium salt of stearic acid, which is also used in supplements for the same purposes. The argument is made that small amounts of these substances do no harm. But do you really want them in your supplements every day? Remember, the sole purpose of using these substances is to make the machines go faster. Supplements can be made without them-it just takes more time, care, and attention to detail.

How Much Hydrogenated Lubricant Oils Are You Getting With Your Supplements?
Up to 5% of the average 1000 mg capsule or tablet is magnesium stearate. That’s 50 milligrams. Suppose you take 8 capsules or tablets a day. That’s 250 a month – or 12,500 mg of this hydrogenated oil, nearly half an ounce. That works out to about 6 ounces of hydrogenated oils a year, from just 8 pills a day. Many people take more supplements, and ingest pounds of this toxic oil we try to avoid in our diets – while directly inhibiting the utilization of the nutrients they’re supplementing!

100% Additive-Free Supplements.
Remember, the sole purpose of using these oils is to make the machines go faster. Supplements can be made without them – it just takes more time, care and attention to detail. Our exclusive process yields absolutely pure supplements – no lubricants, binders, flowing agents, fillers, dyes or additives of any kind – only the pure nutrients.”


NOTOCHEMO’S CONCLUSION:  Read every label before you purchase.  I have checked “name” brands and they contain some kind of stearate.  How disgusting!  What are you feeding your family?

Dr Tom Wu – Scam?

There are “chinese” (Mandarin) sites that say Dr Tom Wu is a liar, is a conman.  I would take his recipes and discuss them with alternative health minded people and seek their opinions.   An herbalist I spoke to commented that his recipes were no more commonsense than so many smoothies.  I think so too.  So far, hubby is still doing Wu’s anticancer smoothie.  I see no harm.  He’s eating more fruits and vegetables anyway.  Well, I’m always searching for more good info.

Cancer Preventive (1) – Dr Tom Wu

Okay, translated from his book, courtesy of a dear friend who bought the book and took the time to do this.   Neither my friend nor I claim responsibility for the translation although my friend took the trouble to consult people in the alternative health business when she needed help with some of the ingredients/words mentioned in Dr Tom Wu’s book.\

If you look at the anticancer smoothie my hubby is using (from Dr Tom Wu via research on the internet), you will see that the formula below {and Cancer Preventive (2) } is different from my hubby’s.
