Lemons and Lemon water Health Benefits

Lemons are one to the citrus family and are rich in vitamin C which is a very potent anti-oxidant. Apart from the juice, the rind is also loaded with benefits: The rind is rich in tangeretin, which have been proven to be effective in brain disorders including Parkinson’s disease.

 

Lemons have the following advantages:

1. Rejuvenates the skin. It is a powerful beauty enhancer.
2. Helps maintain the immune system hence protects the body from infections.
3. Lemons are high in potassium which makes them good for the heart and blood pressure problems.
4. The pectin in the lemons help lower cholesterol levels.
5. Lemons contain 22 anti-Cancer compounds or phytonutrients which include flavonol and limonene.
6. According to the Reams biological ionisation theory (RBTI), the lemon is the only food in the world that is anionic (i.e an ion with a negative charge) and this is extremely important for health as it’s the interaction between cation and anions that ultimately provides cell energy.

Dandelion Root’s Effectiveness Against Cancer Might Be Better Than Chemo

When faced with a cancer diagnosis, you’re normally faced with the horrifying decision of treating it with extremely dangerous treatments like chemotherapy, radiation treatment, and invasive surgeries.

Sometimes, ask any survivor, the treatment feels far worst than the cure offered.

Unfortunately, the medical community is still reluctant to divert from these dangerous treatments, leaving you with that hopeless feeling of having to expose your already sick body to something toxic.

But fret not! I have good news!

 

The Mind Blowing Study

In 2012, the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry of the University of Windsor, Canada completed a study on the effects of dandelion root extract on pancreatic cancer.

The results were simply amazing to say the least.

Their results were that dandelion root extract was able induce selective apoptosis in cancerous cells and caused the collapse of the mitochondrial membranes in these cells which led to cancerous cell prodeath autophagy.

Apoptosis is when several organism cells are infected with a virus that causes overall cell death. Cell death is part of a cell’s life cycle and it’s necessary to free up room and nutrients for new cells.

On the other hand, autophagy is cellular degradation and death that is caused when a cell starves to death (as the name implies) when it tries to continue functioning without any nutrients.

They concluded that additional studies should be made on dandelion root extract to determine if it could be made into a reliable cancer treatment because it was able to selectively target cancerous cells without harming healthy ones.

In other words: a dandelion root extract treatment could be lethal to cancerous cells without destroying your health like chemotherapy, radiation treatment, and cancer removal surgery.

If that’s not mind blowing, I don’t know what is.

However, since a complete and reliable dandelion root treatment has not yet been developed, I still recommend you consult with your family doctor to determine what your best possible course of action are.

The good news is that you should still be able to proactively try to compliment your recommended treatment by incorporating dandelion root into your diet and routine.

How?

With this simple recipe:

Homemade Dandelion Root Tea

Here’s what you’ll need

  • One fresh batch of organic dandelion
  • Water

Do not use dandelion roots from public spaces or unknown sources. If you do, you might be inadvertently drinking in all the pesticides used on it. I recommend either planting it yourself or talking to your local supplier.

Here’s what you’ll need to do:

Chop the dandelion root, then place it in a saucepan of boiling water. Let it sit for a bit more than a minute. Remove the saucepan from the stove, cover it, and let simmer down for about forty minutes.

Strain the liquid into a teacup and reheat if you prefer it that way.

Enjoy!

Nutrition has the potential to possibly help us recover from serious diseases. Certain juicing treatments have been known to help cure cancers.

If you need more inspiration, there’s a myriad of cancer survivors who treated their disease naturally. You can find their stories here.

The Power of Herbs, Seeds and Fruits

Health is wealth as we have said severally. A wise man should consider that health is the greatest of human blessings – Hippocrates, the father of medicine.

Many of us are unaware of how to maintain good health, how much more the power of herbs, seeds and fruits; in its effect to cure. They are quite powerful eg Rosemary , oregano, sage, basil, thyme etc

The creator of the human body has provided us with a powerful immune system which is our inner healing force or power. Psalm 139:

There are natural resources that help bodily function as ordained for good health e.g vitamins, herbs, seeds, whole foods(not processed food), phytochemicals/nutrients (chemical/nutrients in plants).

Our body is like a powerful combination of engines. Engines need fuel and this massive engine or complex organism needs fuel, and that comes from what we consume.
Herbs have been used for centuries now because of their great medical values. They can be quite powerful in healing the body. Herbs are part of nature’s pharmacy. They can work powerfully on cells, tissues and organs to produce great benefit for the body. They are now being used to ;

1. Treat diseases

Benefits of Herbal Remedies

4. Strengthen adrenal glands

6. Battle cancer by supporting the immune system, enhancing the T-cells which are killer cells, activating macrophages
7. Counter the effects of chemo
8. Build the endocrine system

Herbs can be classified into 2 categories

all they do is to help cells, tissues, and organs maintain tone or build throughout the body. They can

B. Supply important nutrients that cells, tissues and organs need to function properly.

– paditaxel (taxol) ; used in CA dermal and comes from Pacific yew tree.
– aspirin; from willow bark
– digitalis ; is a heart muscle strengthener gotten from fox glove plant.

Our Story

A couple of years ago whilst seeking the Lord about the way Christians were dying and succumbing to cancer and other illnesses despite His promises to us in His word about divine health and long life,the Lord spoke to me about watching my diet and took me to some scriptures. These scriptures revealed God’s original intention and what he created for humans to consume.

Genesis 1:29 is one of such scriptures. The revelation was not limited to this scripture alone. He took me on a journey studying His word and also led me to books written by Christians. I finally started a research on diets.

The journey has been an eye opener. I was totally ashamed of myself and sought the Lord’s forgiveness for having disrespected my body which His word says is His temple. This then led me on to study nutrition and I’m now a certified nutritionist and nutritional therapist . I have since then become a certified detox specialist.

Apart from being a trained nutritionist and pharmacist , the Lord’s mandate to me is to teach His people and as many people how to be healthy. God is not a magician. He is a miracle worker. Any creator knows what is best for his/her creation. The manufacturer of a car will tell you all you must do and use to keep the car running well, e.g petrol. That is, he manufacturer lets one know if a car should be powered by petrol or diesel. It would be foolhardy to power a petrol car using kerosine, engine oil or vegetable oil. God knows what is best for our wellbeing, hence Genesis 1:29.

The above is how the journey that birthed Ola Herbs and Greens Resources Ltd started.
Follow closely and your body will thank you. Real people with real results have been transformed mentally and physically by our therapies and detox programs; as well as careful guidance into weight loss and general wellbeing.

My name is Opeoluwa Adetokunbo Aremu-Okulaja and I have a God-given mandate to teach you to be healthy.
You can reach out to me if you have any questions.
