…and may be useful as a sugar alternative for people with diabetes (on the advice of their healthcare providers) And while diabetics can use this one without worry, it has a delicious sweet taste… with no unpleasant aftertaste and 1/3 fewer calories than sugar. Beware… consuming too much can cause diarrhea.
Foods that contain Oxalic Acid (#Oxalates): Dark leafy greens, such as spinach, kale, chard, etc. contain Oxalic Acid that also inhibit absorption of the minerals. Steaming them will significantly reduce the Oxalic Acid but do toss out the left-over water. Also, one can ferment veggies (like cabbage to sauerkraut, or carrots, beets, etc) to release them. Here is a link to how much Oxalic Acid is in various veggies and fruits: To read more…
Also, it is recommended to rinse with baking soda in water, unless you brush afterwards, as I do, with coconut oil/baking soda toothpaste, followed by Xylitol rinse. Here is a video that tells how to do it and the results….

I just wanted to share with you my latest win…. After having had my last hip x-ray 2 years ago, yesterdays x-ray showed only a slight change for the worst. I’m not that surprised as I’ve not only been healing it with nutrition, supplements, exercise and yoga, but during this last month I’ve been facilitating (finally) physical healing to MY OWN HIP!!! These sessions have been really intense, taking from 20 to 40 minutes each. It was only when I began facilitating the 5-Minute Focused healings to others, (rather than more general ones, allowing the energies to go where they were guided by the person’s Divine Intelligence) that I realized I could do this on MYSELF. Duuuuuh! How many of us have not worked on ourselves when we could have? Quan Yin tells me this intentional healing work has caused about a 30% improvement on my hip!!! I guess if I had thought of it sooner, the x-ray could have shown even more improvement!
I am now also working on the discs in my lower back, as well, which are also degenerating….. Ahhhhhh aging…. Stay tuned…
Lots of Love, Joy, & Healing,
As there is quite a bit of info to share, I’ll whittle it down to the bare essentials, with links to to the articles.
From an article by Luke R.Bucchi Ph.D. www.chiro.org/nutrition/FULL/Reversal_of_Osteoarthritis.shtml
“Osteoarthritis is thought to be a normal consequence of aging, caused by routine “wear and tear” on joints. Also, it is thought that cartilage cannot heal itself, which is not completely true. in fact, there is substantial evidence that osteoarthritis can be reversible. Spontaneous remissions in humans have been recorded and reported.
One of the causes of osteoarthritis is free radical formation in joints as the trigger for disease progression. He adds that the two major categories of chondroprotective nutrients are glycosaminoglycans (chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate) and antioxidants, such as ascorbate (vitamin C), tocopherol (vitamin E), superoxide dismutase (SOD), and catalase. These antioxidants share common properties of inhibition of free radical damage to cartilage, decrease of pro-inflammatory prostaglandins, inhibition of degradative enzymes, and for vitamin C, direct anabolic stimulation of chondrocytes.
Interestingly enough, for two years I have been taking an alkalizing, oxygenating, immune-boosting product (Liph Alkalizing Concentrate) which also helps the body make ‘its own’ SOD and Catalase as well as Glutathione, another very powerful antioxidant. I sell it on my website http://zahnsmelange.com/shop
Glucosamine combats osteoarthritis by stimulating the manufacture of glucosamino-glycans, a natural lubricant and shock absorber, which enables your joints to move smoothly and painlessly. It also promotes incorporation of sulfur into cartilage, increasing its strength and durability. In other words, glucosamine has the ability to help rebuild cartilage. This is particularly important for those in the chronic and degenerative stages of osteoarthritis.
Chondroitin sulfate is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory which improves joint function by increasing your body’s synthesis of cartilage, improving joint lubrication, reducing free radicals which can damage cartilage, and removing blockages in blood vessels that support joints. Chondroitin and glucosamine combined work well for late stage osteoarthritis. Several new studies recently published in scientific journals confirm the effectiveness of combining glucosamine and chondroitin to battle the later stages of osteoarthritis, particularly the chronic and degenerative stages
Several new studies recently published in scientific journals confirm the effectiveness of combining glucosamine and chondroitin to battle the later stages of osteoarthritis, particularly the chronic and degenerative stages.
In one extremely comprehensive article by Dr Bernard Presser (http://www.
Joint cartilage (up to 50% collagen) is tough, smooth, resistant, and very elastic, enabling it to break the force of jolts, ease friction between the bones, act as a shock absorber, and stabilize the joint. This allows the bones to rotate in their joints without painfully grinding against each other. Collagen, elastin, and Proteoglycans all contain and must obtain protein, minerals, trace minerals, fatty acids, and depend on vitamin complexes and other dietary nutrients.
While I have been taking a BioCell Collagen Type II product (at a discount from Vitacost) I also ordered some liquid collagen (as I’ve heard that liquid is more absorbable) from Swanson Vitamins which must be good as its been on back-order for 2 weeks!
Moving on… in this same article…
Dr Frances M. Pottenger refers to osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis as “deficiency diseases” which could be “traced back to deficiencies of fresh, vital elements found in raw foods.” He reported that, “by adding fresh and raw foods to our patients’ diets, a marked improvement became noticeable”
This is I’m sure why Dr. Royal Lee refers to arthritis as a “cooked food” disease. “It is evident that the cooking of food can be very important in contributing to tissue degeneration.”
Proteins making up all the various tissues are composed of unique and specific amino acid (arrangement, structure) characteristic to those cells. Each special protein is essential for many functions including building new tissue and repair of injured, insulted, or degrading tissue.
Of the 20 (or 22) amino acids, those the body cannot synthesize are called essential. Of the essential amino acids, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, and histidine are very soluble and easily denatured. They are heat-liabile since heat, as in cooking or pasteurization, destroys the biological nature and activity of the protein.
It has been demonstrated that heat-damaged amino acids render the blood proteins unacceptable to tissues for either maintenance or repair. The result is degenerative diseases including OA. “Cooked food in general predisposes to arthritis, and every case differs by reason of the personal food pattern idiosyncrasies of each victim.”
Dr. Lee recommended the supplemental use of raw veal bone meal for the intact biologically active protein, minerals, trace minerals, and enzymes. Raw veal bone, carrying the enzymes for tissue regeneration, can “stimulate” repair of bone and cartilage as well as other supportive connective tissues.
Bone mineral consists of very small crystalline particles, an “imperfect” or impure form of hydroxyapatite. Pure hydroxyapatite is a calcium phosphate, while hydroxyapatite of bone also incorporates anions (as carbonate, citrate, chloride, etc.) and cations (as sodium, magnesium, potassium, etc.). Raw bone meal, then, is a wonderful source of hydroxyapatite mineral complex with all its natural components and synergists intact. Pure hydroxyapatite, sold in supplements, falls short of the real structural matter of bone.
In addition to eating right, its also important to exercise, but only using LOW-IMPACT exercises, such as short walks, bicycling, squats, etc. And one should NOT overdo them as too much exercise (even the right kind) can exacerbate one’s condition. I actually had a session with my physical therapist to learn what to and not-to do regarding this and highly recommend the same for you.
One last thing… while recovering from osteoarthritis, I was lucky enough to find an amazingly effective pain-relief cream called Therma-mend. Its cumulative effect keeps me comfortable all day and night. I can only sell you samples (2 for $8 including shipping) f from my website http://zahnsmelange.com/shop/
Having used two very comprehensive articles to draw this info from, I have pared down to the barest bones (pun intended) to give you the absolute essentials. There is so much I had to leave out so, if you are gung-ho to avoid surgery, I highly recommend clicking on those links to get most out of this info. Please also feel free to forward to others you think may benefit.
Lots of Love, Joy & Healing,
First of all, I’d like to say that MY LIFE of late has become truly GRAND… as I’m finally being called to facilitate physical Divine Energy Sessions as well as Transition Coaching… and am truly loving being in contribution in these ways, partly because its so joyful and effortless and partly because its helping people in a profound way. More about this at a later date.
The LIPH I’m talking about here is also profound and a joy to be able to present to you…please read on…
There are two products I will SIMPLY NOT BE WITHOUT. Interestingly enough, both have SAVED MY LIFE and both are CRYSTALLINE-BASED… of course we all know that is exactly what we need while transforming from carbon-based ‘beings’ to crystalline ones. Today, I’ll focus on only one of them as well as its spin-off ‘Miracle’ Gel product. Here is a sneak preview…
I’d like to begin with the story of my personal experience (plus a couple of other testimonials) with both these products, followed by some HARD FACTS from my own research, as well as info from the LIPH website, including test results, all proving how amazingly powerful and versatile the Liph Alkaline Boosting Concentrate and ‘Miracle’ Gel are. Then, I’ll finish off by offering MY OWN UNIQUE AFFORDABLE PRICING.
LIPH ALKALINE BOOSTING CONCENTRATE
I found this product over a year ago, when I was suffering from a truly virulent case of MRSA, which for those of you who don’t know, is a (some say, man-made) highly contagious and extremely deadly Staph infection… the kind that many die from while being hospitalized.
Not wanting to take antibiotics for obvious reasons, I tried several natural products… Ionic Silver, Manuka Honey, a Young Living essential oil custom-formula a friend made for me, all of which helped, but after about three weeks of all this, doing nothing else but resting, I was at my wits end wondering if this MRSA would ever leave me. Then a friend told me about LIPH Concentrate, which I ordered immediately. I used it both internally and topically and this is what I believe finally brought me to the FINISH LINE and beyond!
The saga continues…. I was told that even once I was ‘medically’ cleared of having had MRSA, I had better wait at least 2 more weeks before the heart surgery. This turned out to be a wise move because I didn’t know at the time that the heart surgery was going to be a major open-heart, double by-pass, which could have killed me if I hadn’t truly transcended the MRSA.
I was really glad to be able to use the LIPH concentrate before and immediately after the surgery, especially since the persistent Staph rash that had led into the MRCA (in the first place) came back about a week afterwards. And even though I continued to ply myself internally and externally with it, it still took awhile for it to finally go away. I have to say, it was a scary time for me, and I’m glad I had something so powerful to pull me through.
Eight weeks after the heart surgery, I then had hip-replacement surgery, the aftereffects of which was drop-foot… nerve damage from the surgery, which causes me to have to wear a brace until the nerves grow back, which can take years.
Now, a year after that surgery, due to that, my lack of perfect balance has caused some pain in my lower back and hips. I believe upping my dosage to 30 drops a day of the Liph Concentrate has very much helped with inflammation, which I now have very little of. Please note, although the info on the LIPH website and brochure says we must not consume more than 2 droppers full in a 24 hour period or more than 4 oz of the mixed product, this is because of ‘regulations’. There are NO BAD SIDE EFFECTS to taking more of the product, as your body will discard whatever is not used. If you are using it without results, just up your dosage.
Also, I’d like to point out that because I have a rather delicate digestive system, it works best for me to take my entire daily dose at once in a quart of water and at least a half hour before any meal, so that my digestive acids have a chance to rebalance.
LIPH SOOTHING FACE GEL ~ ‘MIRACLE’ GEL
I feel to begin with someone else’s recent testimonial and then go into my own…
“I purchased the Liph face gel without knowing what to expect. I opened the jar and wasn’t particularly impressed with the way the gel looked, it had a slight sheen but thought, what the heck, I’ll try it. The first night I put it on my hands and face and loved the way the gel absorbed right into my skin, no residue, grease or anything – it was completely absorbed within seconds. When I woke up the next morning I was blown away. The skin on my hands looked significantly younger and my face was firmer, especially around my eyes. I was so impressed with the results that I called and ordered the Liph drops the very next day. I’ve now been using the gel for about a week and can’t believe what I’m seeing. The puffiness around my eyes is completely gone and it’s almost like time is reversing around my eyes. My whole eye is firming up (even my upper eyelids) and my skin looks amazing. This stuff is awesome.” Kate B.
And now for mine…While I was still recovering from the MRCA, I used the gel on my face. After just two applications, while using the concentrate in my water for one day, the scaly rash on my forehead I’d had for 5 years finally disappeared!!
During my recovery from the heart surgery, the nurses at the rehab center were absolutely agog at how fast and well the scar on my chest was healing, because none of them had ever seen healing like this before. I was told I would very likely not even have a scar. They were especially impressed as I was 70 years old at the time, which is a definite slow-down factor in healing. About a year later, there is merely a very faint line where the surgery took place.
At that same time, I was given some samples of the concentrate as well as gel from the company, which I distributed to nurses, staff and other patients. One particular nurse used the gel on her teenage son, who had cut his forehead when he was a toddler. He had a huge pronounced scar from it, which totally disappeared within about 10 days of using this ‘Miracle’ Gel.
I have also used it as well as the Liph Concentrate on a growth on my arm, which soon easily peeled off. I recently found another sort of wart behind one knee, which I’m treating the same way and it is shrinking nicely.
And now for the WHY’S & WHEREFORES:
INFO AND RESEARCH FROM THE LIPH WEBSITE:
MY OWN INDEPENDENT RESEARCH REGARDING THESE ANTIOXIDANTS
SOD & CATALASE
SOD (Superoxide Dismutase) and Catalase are powerful antioxidant enzymes. They play crucial roles in promoting health by forming part of our bodies’ primary system of defense against free radical damage.The 1969 discovery of SOD has been called “the most important discovery of modern biology never to win a Nobel Prize.” It laid the foundation for a whole new field of biology and medicine-the study of free radicals.
SOD and Catalase are classified as “primary antioxidants,” and they work synergistically with the well-known “secondary antioxidants” such as vitamins C, A, and E. But of all the antioxidants, SOD is the most powerful. A single SOD molecule can neutralize thousands of free radicals, whereas “secondary antioxidants” can neutralize only one. One I.U. of SOD has a life of several days, and catalyzes the elimination of billions of free radicals.
There are more than 89,000 medical articles about it — but your doctor doesn’t know how address the epidemic deficiency of this critical life-giving molecule , the mother of all antioxidants, the master detoxifier and maestro of the immune system. The good news is that your body produces its own glutathione. The bad news is that poor diet, pollution, toxins, medications, stress, trauma, aging, infections and radiation all deplete your glutathione. It’s the most important molecule you need to stay healthy and prevent disease. It’s the secret to prevent aging, cancer, heart disease, dementia and more, and necessary to treat everything from autism to Alzheimer’s Disease.
Maintaining optimal levels of glutathione is essential to your health, according to a 2004 report published in the Journal of Nutrition. The report’s authors note that glutathione plays a key role in antioxidant defense, breakdown of nutrients, and regulation of many biological processes (including immune response).
Glutathione is said to protect against a wide range of health issues, including: Alcoholism, Alzheimers Disease, Asthma, Atherosclerosis, Autism, Cancer, Cataracts, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Colitis, Cystic Fibrosis, Diabetes, Glaucoma, Heart Disease, Hepatitis, High Cholesterol, Liver Disease, Osteoarthritis, Parkinson’s Disease, Sickle Cell Anemia, Stroke.
