There was once a flu epidemic that spread quickly like wildfire through many towns in Japan. Local government officials were in panic, requesting for help from the health department, which was helpless to contain it. The situation got a lot of media coverage.


Then, it came out in the newspapers that there was a small village where people had no flu. Health experts visited the town to find out why. They discovered that it was a practice in that village to place sliced onions exposed to the air on the dinner table. Lab tests revealed that sliced onions attracted all kinds of bacteria and viruses and killed them instantly. It must be an ethnic practice, the wisdom of ancient people defying our modern age of chemical medicine which are expensive and which at times have bad effects. Some articles questioned the veracity of onions as an anti-flu vehicle, but they argued that onions could not cure the flu. In reality, it PREVENTED RATHER CURED the flu by attracting bacteria and viruses BEFORE NOT AFTER they infected people.


The pharmaceutical multinationals must be squirming because if this news spreads out, they will lose millions in income from flu medicines. Help make this news viral in the Internet. Forward this to friends. Let us teach people the simple inexpensive ways of health.


Let us advocate for natural organic medicine, not as a replacement but as a complement to chemical medicine. A friend tells me about his sister, who came home from California. She developed a bad knee and spent thousands of pesos for consultations and expensive lab tests and medicine who failed to help her. My friend brought her to a manghihilot (native herbal and massage health paramedic), who had no knowledge of the science of medicine but had the intuition of a healer from wisdom passed on to him by his father. For a miserly 200 pesos and two days of hilot (massage), his sister walked away happy.


Turmeric (yellow ginger) is known as a magical cure-all. It is a powerful antioxidant and has anti-inflammatory properties. It can detoxify organs like the liver and pancreas. It improves degenerating brain functions and delays incurable Alzheimer’s and Dementia, and many more.


The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin. Pharmas argue that it is only 3% in raw form and, even if you take a ton, it has little help. You have to buy their expensive turmeric powder with high concentration of curcumin. But new research have discovered how to harness the power of curcumin without buying expensive powder.


Here is how it is done, which you can do at home. Buy half a kilo of inexpensive yellow ginger. No need to remove skin. Remove dark spots and bumps. Break into small pieces for easier blending. Wash well and drip-dry before using a cheese grater. Let it air-dry on the dinner table for 3 days to remove the acidity, so your stomach will not complain. Add virgin coconut oil or VCO, not too much, and black pepper. Use a blender to make it into a fine paste. The VCO and black pepper increase the extraction of curcumin five-fold. Put in the freezer as half a kilo is already a month’s supply.


Take half to one cube a day on a cup of warm or room-temperature water. Do not boil or add very hot water, so it remains ‘virgin’ and active ingredients are not destroyed. Eat the turmeric residue. If the turmeric powder you buy is not virgin, active ingredients are lost. Brush your teeth after drinking as turmeric affects the enamel. Also wash immediately the cup and all equipment you used, as the yellow stain is hard to remove if not washed right away. Finally, take plenty of water to wash away the toxins. You are on your way to using a powerful home-made organic cure-all which can heal many of your ailments in one shot. In Batanes, they make delicious ‘yellow fried rice’ with turmeric. Please forward this to friends to help them.

A True Story
Author Unknown
In Social Media, there are many touching articles and videos today which are simple but powerful, which go viral and inspire millions of readers/viewers, yet have unknown authors or producers, because they are simply forwarded, or copied-pasted without regard to by-lines and credits. This is one of them. I took the pains of transcribing the entire video narration into this article because articles sometimes have a wider audience than videos in Social Media. Also, I cannot even insert the video link here.


He lives with his wife in an ordinary rental apartment in the city of San Francisco. He never wears branded clothing, his glasses are trusted and aged, his watches are functional and unglamorous. He doesn’t have his own car. His primary means of transportation is the bus, and the bag he uses for work is an old plastic bag. But surprisingly, over the course of his life, he has donated more than $18 billion to charitable causes.


Who is this man? Well, his name is Chuck Feeney. He is frugal with himself but generous with others. He likes to make money but does not like to spend it on himself. Through his lifetime, he has contributed $588 million to Cornell University, and $125 million to the University of California and $60 million to Stanford University. Outside of the United States, he spend $1 billion renovating, and then building a further seven new universities in Ireland. Incredibly, he also founded a charity fund aimed at providing cleft-lip surgery for children in developing countries.


More incredibly still, Chuck never sought praise for his many contributions. He admirably never revealed his name in association with each donation, but asked for his donations to be made anonymously. Towards the end of his life, Chuck Feeney’s selfless and astounding deeds were revealed by the media.


When Chuck eventually did face the press and was asked the inevitable question of “Why did you choose to donate all of your wealth to charity?” Chuck Feeney simply smiled and said, “People are born naked, and then fianllly die alone.” And he continued, “No one can carry the wealth and reputation that he himself has been striving for, for a lifetime.” A reporter asked Chuck Feeney once more, “Why did you donate all of your fortunes?” Chuck Feeney smiled cheerfully and gave an unbelievable answer, beyond anyone’s imagination. “Because the corpse cover does not have a bag.”


Chuck Feeney has set an example for the rich all over the world. Two great American tycoons, Bill Gates and Warren Buffett have attempted to adopt his way of thinking and strive to follow his actions.


“Think for the people while enjoying life at the same time,” Chuck Feeney said.


A Viewer’s Reflections


one must have purity of heart when giving
do not miss the opportunity to give
because life is short and there is a lot to do


You can be like the anonymous billionaire without being a billionaire. There is so much to give on the spiritual plain which can rival impact on the material plain. All we need is to give ourselves and our time to others. Some of these precious spiritual gifts we can ‘donate’ include – comforting others in pain, reversing depression into elation, despair into hope, greed into charity, hatred into forgiveness. We have so much power to change people, yet we do not know it.


There is so much we can do and give, but we often let it pass away in our daily concern for schedules and tasks. If you adopt an awareness of this type of gift giving into every minute of your busy day, you will realize how happy and peaceful you are, how you become less cranky and more forgiving, how harder it is to get ulcers or heart ailment, even cancer, which has spiritual causes.


You have to be selfless, no self-interest, no manipulation, no pretense, no deceit. You must be pure of heart. You must touch other people’s lives, inspire and uplift for their sake, not yours. Money is the last thing you can give.


The urge of Gates and Buffett to emulate Feeney, to replace profit making with fortune giving, reveals how much the spirit of giving can conquer the obsession for grabbing. Rockefeller envied Carnegie when he shifted from grabbing to giving by setting up a foundation. All of a sudden all the fortunes in the world was no longer important. Both tycoons established the largest foundations of their age. Yet, at one time, they were clawing and strangling and trying to acquire each other. There is a gray area between greed and generosity, and it takes effort to move from one towards the other, whether you are a tycoon or a commoner.


If you do this, believe me, you have one foot in heaven’s door.

A Touching New-Year Story about a Father and Son

A little boy and his father visited the country store, and upon leaving the store, the owner of the store offered the little boy some free Sweets… “Get a hand full of Sweets”, the merchant said to the boy.




The boy just stood there looking up at his father. The owner repeated his offer:- “Son, get a hand full of Sweets… it’s free.” Again the boy did not move, continuing to look up to the face of his father. Finally, the father reached into the candy jar and got a hand full of Sweets and gave it to his son.


As they walked back home, the father stopped and asked his son why he did not grab a hand full of the free candy. The boy, with a big smile, said, “Because I know that your HAND is BIGGER than mine.”


So, whatever our needs are, as we journey into the New Year 2019, please place them in OUR FATHER’S HAND IN HEAVEN, because HIS HAND is BIGGER THAN yours…God Bless and protect you!!


Happy New Year 2019!!
