About Eating Fruits, Heart Attack and Stroke Signs and Avoiding (or helping heal Prostate) Cancer

It may interest you to note that our Pinoy Blogger (PB) himself had a history of a mild heart attack in 2002 and had to undergo an angioplasty procedure, then was hospitalized for a week in the US after a mild heart stroke in September 2010.

Now he has regained his full health with normal blood pressure, sugar and cholesterol level using God given means and natural remedies to keep up with the challenges of life in this world. Yes, he has stopped using any sort of medication. It is indeed a miracle and blessing from God and he feels he is on a mission to share this to the world that others may enjoy God’s gift of life, that they too may share the light of truth that heals, frees and saves forever.

He felt that his mild stroke experience was a revelation from God Almighty through the Holy Spirit where in reality, we have an immune system God has created in our body to help us heal ourselves, enhanced through faith.

Being always thankful to Him for His goodness and blessings is a sign of our spiritual maturity, and that in all good things He may be glorified.

And in following Jesus Christ's words of love, humility, understanding and forgiveness, with hope and full trust in Him, devoid of pride and any malice against another, ever thankful in all circumstances as in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, counting more our blessings more than our hurts make us one with Christ.

And you will see what  true peace and happiness means in our life in Christ Jesus as you find healing and truth in God''s words.

Yes, it's just like being in heaven.

And with natural supplements and anti-oxidants, faith comes out vital as a perfect elixir of hope in natural healing where the spirit teams up with the body's immune system where the more we become happy with God and in godly ways, the healthier we may become.

Uhum?  Yes, this may not make sense to you unless you learn to open your heart and soul to the Lord.

The more we fear the more we may be bound to be lost and confused with so many corrupted knowledge that fills our hearts, minds, and our souls.

But the more we love God and trust Him more, the more He abides in us.

As in 1 John 4:18(source:  biblehub.com,NIV), "There is no fear in love.  But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment.  The one who fears is not made perfect in love."

[Read in our post:  "God's Awesome Works in God's Awesome Creation and the Messiah in Jesus..." for added enlightenment.]

His daily regimenprayers and faith in Jesus’ healing power is number one; taking 2000mg of Vitamin C, 1x multi vitamins, 1xgrape seeds, 2x650mg Calcium Lactate, 1xVCO (Virgin Coconut Oil), 4 oz or ¼ cup of red wine, 1 to 2 glasses of green tea or lemon juice with honey, rice cooked with turmeric and a few sprinkle of pepper to enhance its healing effect, with onions, garlic and pineapple vinegar on it (to neutralize sugar level and keep body organs healthy) – all of these with grapefruits, bananas, mangoes, strawberries/cucumber and cantaloupe/watermelon on the sides depending on availability(mostly anti-oxidants) coupled with 2 or three times a week 45 min brisk walking and a gym workout after an intake of a Nitric Oxide capsule.

In an ever stressful environment, everybody is prone to being a victim to life threatening illnesses such as heart attack, stroke and cancer.

As many health practitioners believe but many times forget reminding their patients, "stress can kill."

A family who may keep attuned to God's words in Jesus may see a less stressful life, where there is love, humility, understanding and forgiveness.  Once malice, envy, jealousy, anxiety and worry, pride, greed and/or selfishness gets into any relationship, stress builds up as conflicts may arise, and this may raise blood pressure levels to uncontrollable proportions where blood clots may form due to inflammation from within and plaque buildup induced along blood vessels.  However healthy one may become, excessive stress somewhat weakens the immune system and this may cause many health issues.

Would too much worrying help?  Jesus tells us not to worry for worrying will not add a single day or hour in our life as in  Matthew 6:27.      

Aside from antioxidants helping in enhancing our immune system in effectively battling illness causing free-radicals in the body, it is important to calm our nerves by being able to develop that skill of being able to control our negative emotions.

Here are some healthy suggestions which you may find useful for healthy living... collected from choice emails backed by plausible health and scientific research on eating fruits, avoiding cancer and knowing early signs of a heart attack and stroke.


EATING FRUITS" and PROSTATE HEALTH VIDEO (under RED WINE)

Fallacy or Not?

According to previous research by Dr. Devagi Sanmugan and the late Dr. Herbert Shelton, not Dr. Oz as previously been shared by email (contested by source:  snopes.com):

"Eating fruits is not only about buying what fruits we like, cutting them and just popping them into our mouths. It is important to know how and when to eat.

What is the correct way of eating fruits?

IT MEANS NOT EATING FRUITS AFTER YOUR MEALS!

FRUITS SHOULD BE EATEN ON AN EMPTY STOMACH.

If you eat fruit like that, it will play a major role to detoxify your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities.

FRUIT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FOOD. Let us say you eat two slices of bread and then a slice of fruit. The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but it is prevented from doing so.

In the meantime the whole meal rots and ferments and turns to acid. The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil.

So please eat your fruits on an empty stomach or before your meals! You have heard people complaining - every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian my stomach bloats up, when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet etc - actually all this will not arise if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach. The fruit mixes with the putrefying food and produces gas; hence, you (may) bloat!

Graying hair, balding, nervous outburst, and dark circles under the eyes all these (may) not happen if you take fruits on an empty stomach."


This has been contested by Snopes researchers, nevertheless, no wonder I can take any kind of fruit whatever time of the day or part of a meal, and I am not taking any prescribed medication.  

Perhaps, the healthier your immune system is, the more you may not have to worry on timing. 



"There is no such thing as some fruits like orange and lemon are acidic, because all fruits become alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this matter. If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits, you have the ("Secret") of beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness and normal weight.

When you need to drink fruit juice - drink only fresh fruit juice, NOT from the cans. Do not even drink juice that has been heated up. Do not eat cooked fruits because you do not get the nutrients at all. You only get to taste. Cooking (usually) destroys all the vitamins.

But eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice. If you should drink the juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it. You can go on a 3-day fruit fast to cleanse your body. Just eat fruits and drink fruit juice throughout the 3 days and you will be surprised when your friends tell you how radiant you look!"

All these may adhere to 'common sense,' but be wary, human knowledge may falter but 'divine wisdom' never fails where 'love never fails.'

I may believe scientific researches at a certain point, but it is my spirit that connects to God who is all knowing, all powerful in His words of truth and love that never fail to enlighten as I struggle for answers.  

For it is in my Lord Jesus, my Shepherd, who never fails me, in the guidance of  the Holy Spirit, for in Him I entrust my life, my healing, my choices and decisions, and my salvation, 

All the foregoing knowledge shared from online sources may guide us to help enhance our immune system, all these coming from nature, from the fruits of the earth that God has blessed us with, but may we not forget to give thanks and give back in His goodness, that our healing may be complete.


KIWI: Tiny but mighty. This is a good source of potassium, magnesium, vitamin E & fiber. Its vitamin C content is twice that of an orange.

APPLE: An apple a day keeps the doctor away? Although an apple has a low vitamin C content, it has antioxidants & flavonoids which enhances the activity of vitamin C thereby helping to lower the risks of colon cancer, heart attack & stroke.

STRAWBERRY: Protective Fruit. Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits & protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging free radicals.

ORANGE : Sweetest medicine. Taking 2-4 oranges a day may help keep colds away, lower cholesterol, prevent & dissolve kidney stones as well as lessens the risk of colon cancer..

WATERMELON, MELON, MANGOES AND CANTALOUPE: Coolest thirst quencher. Watermelon is composed of 92% water while Melon and Cantaloupe at almost 90%. Watermelon is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which helps boost our immune system. It is also a key source of lycopene - the cancer fighting oxidant. Other nutrients found in watermelon are vitamin C & Potassium. Melon and Cantaloupe are rich in vitamin A and Potassium as well. "Mango extracts may help prevent or stop cancel growth in certain breast and colon cells," as our blog link, OncologyNurseAdvisor.com, states. All of these fruits can help maintain a normal blood pressure too being rich in anti-oxidants.

GUAVA, PAPAYA AND BANANA: While guava and papaya are top awards for vitamin C because of their high vitamin C content, banana is rich in potassium which is good for all muscle tissues including the heart and helps maintain a normal blood pressure too. Like banana, guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation. Papaya is rich in carotene; this is good for your eyes.

GUYABANO:  Known to have cancer healing effects, helps lower down blood pressure, blood sugar level and more.

Drinking Cold water after a meal (may lead to) = Cancer! Can you believe this? For those who like to drink cold water, this article (may be helpful) to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine(s) faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine(s). Very soon, this will turn into fats and (may)lead to cancer. (Therefore,) it is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.”


EARLY SIGNS OF A HEART ATTACK:

Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack.

Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms, and pain on the shoulders or nape as well.

Sixty percent of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let us be careful and be aware. The more we know the better chance we could survive.”

RED WINE:

Red wine, which is made from grapes, is now being widely accepted as an anti-oxidant which can also help lower down cholesterol level on top of being a natural complement that has helped in healing some cancer patients.


[Read an eye opener cancer healing blogpost:  Study:  Cancer Cures Found in the Bible?  And Commonly Used Blood Pressure Drugs 'Can Increase Cancer Risks?...]

"How Doctors Heal their Prostate," see this video link and learn more as a great defense for your prostate, presented by Dr. Allan Spreen, one of the trusted stalwarts in natural supplements and healing industry.

If we see red wine as something powerful that it helps heal us in many ways, I would like to believer that it is not plain coincidence that wine has been mentioned in the last supper as we may partake in the healing blood of Christ in holy communion, and its essence of providing 'life' to a wedding as in the wedding feast of Cana, where Jesus made his first miracle at the prodding of his mother, Mama Mary, transforming water into wine.


And with faith, I know, we may be healed, as Jesus said, in Matthew 19:26, "... with people this is impossible... but with God, all things are possible."

A blood clot is the main cause of a stroke or a heart attack, and PB found red wine as being effective too in dilating the blood performing as a blood thinner, especially when taken with nitric oxide (NO).

As Dr. Andrew Weil, renowned leader and pioneer of integrative medicine, puts it in his book, Spontaneous Healing, "alcohol can enhance the production of good cholesterol," and PB finds red wine as a very good example for this as the more nutritious part of the grapes, which is the skin, is retained and made more potent making red wine as more effective antioxidant.



NITRIC OXIDE:

Dr. Louis J. Ignarro, together with his colleagues Ferid Murad and Robert Furchgott, contributed their discovery to the whole world about this miracle molecule, NO (Nitric Oxide), which was found to help dilate the blood vessels, an effective way of preventing heart ailments. And this earned him the prestigious Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1998 as he wrote on his book “No More Heart Disease”, a national bestseller.

[Read further on our related post on “Goodbye to Heart Disease? See How, and Nitric Oxide”.]


RECOGNIZING A STROKE:

"Pray and thank God for the sense to remember the "3" steps, STR, in recognizing a stroke. Sometimes symptoms are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe grain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

S = Ask the individual to SMILE

T = Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE(Coherently)(eg., It is sunny out today.)

R = Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

Another sign of a stroke is a CROOKED TONGUE if you ask him or her to stick it out. If it goes to one side or the other, that is also an indication of a stroke.

There was an incident in a BBQ party where a woman stumbled and took a little fall. She assured everyone she was fine(despite of offers to call paramedics) and she said she just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

She got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, she went about enjoying herself for the rest of the evening.

Her husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital but it wast too late as she passed away at 6pm. She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps, she would still be alive today. Some do not die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead."

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke. He said the trick was getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours which is tough.

A cardiologist says spreading these effective ways of saving lives can be very helpful. And who knows, the next life you save can be yours.

(Acknowledgements to Bob Villasor, Michael Bird and Tom Kelly for the informative emails)

Again, there is no substitute to total healing by faith, as my spirit tells me.  

What causes much of our illnesses, if not from our unhealthy lifestyle and the food or the wrong medication we may take, it is caused by wrong things that we do and believe in, and in my miracle experience, God has revealed to me who stress on worldly things may put a heavy toll on our physical, mental and spiritual health.

The answer lies in the strength of our spirit in Christ, my dear brothers and sisters, where without Him, we are nothing. we remain lost, we are nowhere.

But with Christ we have hope.  

Never doubt in the power of His words and the light of truth in Him that heals and frees in many ways.

Miracles do happen because of faith and good deeds, because we care to love and believe, because we bear to forgive with no malice in our hearts as we carry our burden, our own cross in this life, and as always ready to share in our talents, our time, our space, our gifts and treasures with our family, and with others in this life the light of truth, that in everything, God may be glorified.

Goodbye to Heart Disease? See How, and Nitric Oxide


Nobel Prize Winner, Dr. Louis Ignarro, is the man. Awarded the very prestigious Nobel Prize in Medicine for his great discovery of a natural artery plaque remover, Dr. Ignarro, has contributed a superbly outstanding cure that may eventually bid goodbye to the most dreaded heart diseases in the history of man making angioplasty, heart bypass operations and blood pressure drugs practically obsolete.

This “miracle molecule” he discovered incredibly cuts artery plaque by 50% and brings down cholesterol level to as much as 60 points.

This so-called “miracle molecule” is the nitric oxide(NO), with the same product derivative you may see on the web endorsed by some Mix Martial Arts (MMA) champions to keep their muscles bigger and stronger.

And some health practitioners see this dynamic molecule as the same enhancer that helps stimulate certain virility enhancing drugs.

Nitric oxide is actually gas that is inhaled. The additional effect of nasal breathing relates to this powerful hormone, nitric oxide, produced in nasal passages.

The endothelium, a single layer of cells tissue that lines the blood and lymph vessels, heart and some other cavities, also produces nitric oxide with an NO enhancer. 

And it has been proven effective too in lowering inhaled steroids among asthma patients (read "Positive Winds of Change for Pulmonary Hypertension" and its last section for related topic at this link... http://www.aolhealth.com/conditions/positive-winds-of-change-for-pulmonary-hypertension)  “compared to standard care potentially decreasing risk of side effects,” according to a study in 2005 by the New England Journal of Medicine.

Products which claim to help produce and release this "miracle molecule" from our system or body metabolism have been there on fitness and health store shelves all along with many identified or better known as muscle builders (see capsuled or tablet products with nitric oxide on their label made available too on this site at a fairly affordable rate).

It has been some years back since doctors using natural complements have uncovered and made public its very usefulness on preventing heart ailments as it has been found to relax and smooth muscles to widen (dilate) blood vessels, normalizes transmission of nerve signals and modulates the immune system. 

Several anti-oxidants such as green tea, garlic, Vitamin C and many others coupled with regular exercise also help in the release of Nitric Oxide (be wary, there are innefective Nitric Oxide in the market online, try the reliable source from HSI or NEO40 products under human.com, the latter link available on upper right column of this page).

Reading Dr. Louis J. Ignarro's book, "NO More Heart Disease," can give you a wealth of information on the many uses of NO and how it can keep you healthy.

For other enlightening aspects of Nitric Oxide you may refer to other sites on the web with FAQ's and answers that may interest you, despite of probable scam claims, it leaves you the prerogative over weighing your findings before making your own decisions for your health.

There are reported side effects though such as blood in the urine, high blood sugar, increased difficulty breathing infection, low blood pressure and/or skin infection but all these have been attributed to an overdose of NO (nitric oxide) or the release of too much of it.

As the saying goes, “whatever is too much can be dangerous”.  Moderation is still the key.

The body tolerates NO so fast so cycling them every month or so is recommended to help you stay healthy.

Usage of no longer than 8 to 10 weeks continuously can be safe and Pinoy Blogger (PB) uses it 2 to 3 times a week on single dosage before a workout and it has helped him much maintain a normal blood pressure, so far with no side effects, and reduce cholesterol level with the help of red wine, green tea, cucumber, banana, grapefruits and/or cantaloupe/watermelon on the sides.

[Read on related and revealing post:  About Eating Fruits, Heart Attack and Stroke Signs and Avoiding Cancer]


You do not have to take PB's word for it if you have doubts but getting a copy of the book "NO More Heart Disease" by Dr. Louis Ignarro can give you more confidence in using Nitric Oxide.

PB has proven to himself this regimen very effective especially so being a firm believer of God's goodness through the many natural foods, fruits, herbs, gas, vitamins and minerals He has created that can sustain our good health (you can readily contact him through this email address, edwinoelt@yahoo.com).

Keeping in mind and following God's commandments with the powerful words of love, humility, understanding, mercy and forgiveness in Christ's teachings, can help much in any healing process.

Releasing our mind and body from undue stress has been found in many scientific and medical researches to help strengthen our immune system.
     
And as they say in drug advertising parlance, "If symptoms persist, consult your doctor." It pays to get a second opinion.
