ancient filipino nature medicine

ANCIENT FILIPINO NATURE MEDICINE

The multinational pharmaceuticals fear this type of article going viral in the Internet. Even just oregano leaves, no. 1, if it goes viral worldwide, can cost them billions in losses within weeks. Here are simple cures for simple ailments from ancient Filipino folk medicine.
 
01 Oregano leaves.
This is a very powerful expectorant for colds and flu, especially if taken as fresh leaves chewed, although a little bit bitter. Wash with warm brine to kill bacteria. Have a glass of sweet tea to wash off the bitter taste. You can add water and blend into a paste, but do not cook. In blended form, one tablespoon three times a day is good.

 

02 Wood or Coconut Shell Coal.
This is used for instant effective relief of severe diarrhea. Wash wood coal first with plain water to remove dust. Do not use soap. Grind a chunk into fine powder, add warm water, and drink like tea. A chunk the size of a ping-pong ball can make about three half-a-cups. Two to three half cups a day is good. Coal absorbs excess bacteria-laden fluids in the intestine. The best kind of coal is from coconut shell. Take a glass of sweet tea to wash off the taste.

 

03 Dried squash seeds. (Albanian)
This is for swollen prostate, aside from being an aphrodisiac. Take ¼ to ½ kilo a week, even more. Some may react to too much salt in the seed’s skin. You don’t have to ingest the salt if you know how to bite off the skin. However, wash your mouth after. Also, it has some uric acid.

 

04 Neem tree leaves.
This is used for skin diseases, especially psoriasis or skin fungi infections. Wash the leaves with warm brine, add water and use a blender. Boil like tea for 30 minutes. Retain only the water, using a sieve. If your psoriasis begins to itch violently, you are getting healed. You can refrigerate and reheat portions to avoid spoiling. Neem leaves are also taken orally, dried and ground into capsule form. But be careful as dosage has not been accurately determined. Also, in capsule form, it may develop fungi within a month or so. Very effective ‘cure-all’, anti-cancer, anti-arthritris, anti-toxin, etc.

 

05 Gall of chicken.
This is used as a very effective antidote against malaria, better than chemical medicine. It is used by Medical Mission Sisters in remote areas of Mindanao-Sulu where there is no western medicine. The best are the powerful snake or iguana gall, but chicken will do. This is very bitter, so wash it immediately with a sweet drink. Some swallow the open gall bladder itself to avoid tasting the bitterness. It is hard to take but if you have the deadly cerebral type of malaria and you are in a remote area, you have no choice. Chicken gall has saves thousands of lives in malaria endemic areas in the south.

 

06 Bittermelon leaves.
(Ampalaya in Pilipino). This is very effective in bringing down high fever instantly. Place the leaves on arms, legs, armpits, chest, back, then wrap with linen and or towel, or use a tight long sleeve t-shirt and long pants. The leaves absorbs body heat rapidly. Within half an hour, when the leaves are ‘cooked’, there is no more fever.

 

07 Fresh coconut juice.
This washes and cleans the kidney. It can melt uric stones if taken massively. Take it at will the whole day. It is a diuretic, so complement with water. Take bananas to regain lost potassium. It is also used as a substitute to intra-venus dextrose in emergency situations. It is also used as a substitute to motor oil in emergency situations (viscosity and temperature tolerance is less), but only if your car is calibrated properly.

 

08 Virgin coconut oil (VCO).
This is known to be a ‘cure-all’, good for all types of blood and organ ailments. Anti-toxin, anti-cancer, cures arthritis, neutralizes excess uric acid in the blood without damaging the kidneys. Three tablespoons a day before meals. You will feel the effects within two weeks. VCO is processed without heat or any added substances.

 

09 Kamote tops, or leaves.
Rich in Iron, this cheap leafy vegetable strengthens the blood against dengue. Boil and drink the soup and eat the leaves. It is food for peasants and the poor, being grown abundantly in backyards.

 

10 Sunflower or eucalyptus leaves.
These are powerful insect repellants. Fresh leaves are placed in closets to ward off cockroaches. Eucalyptus leaves are made by the Chinese into Catol, a slow burning incense that repels mosquitoes. The Ifugao tribes of the Cordillera use fresh sunflower leaves as anti-insect ‘floor wax’.

health tips 07 – ANTIBIOTIC MYTHS

health tips 06
 
____________________
THE ANTIBIOTIC MYTH
 
The Pharmaceutical Industry will hate this article. Why? Simple. It will destroy their business. It is better kept secret, like the Automotive Industry suppressing new technologies on non-petrol fuel that would save energy ten fold. They buy off inventors and investors.
 
For decades, we were made to believe that antibiotics were the absolute messiah in health. Messiah yes, but absolute no. Antibiotics have saved millions of lives, but its messianic character has produced myths that are only being unearthed today in new bio-research discoveries.
 
CONTINUE
By taking anti-biotic for an infected foot, you ingest this powerful drug that kills other good bacteria in your stomach and intestines, bacteria that help you digest, fight off bad bacteria, and prevent certain types of diseases. It is like using a sledge hammer to kill a fly. The more you take antibiotics, the more you disrupt your internal biological content. By killing good and bad bacteria, you become open to new bacteria rising from the antibiotic rubble that may dominate your biological make up.
 
Various bacteria are known to cause diabetes, asthma and obesity. In a medical experiment, the bacteria from an obese rat was transferred to a frail rat which in time also became obese. That obesity is mainly acquired genetically is now becoming more and more of a myth. An ‘obesity epidemic’ indeed can be caused by transfer from human to human orally, especially in a family which eats together everyday. Of course, there are other factors such as eating habits, and type of food ingested. But there are now new factors to consider.
 
The same is true of diabetes and asthma. New findings are attempting to verify that these two common ailments can be cause by certain types of bacteria we ingest. And since there are millions of bacteria species, there can be hundreds of diseases in humans caused by them.
 
The alternative to antibiotics, on a non-emergency level, or on a case-to-case basis, say ailments which are deadly, or situations where immediate medication is not urgent, are food which enhance good bacteria and kill bad bacteria. We still need antibiotic, but not all the time. An entire science on organics is now emerging to respond to this new or organic medicine, not necessarily coming from the Pharmaceutical Industry.

health tip 05 – ALZHEIMER AND BRAIN HEALTH

health tips 05
 
______________________________________________________
ALZHEIMER PREVENTION AND BRAIN HEALTH
 
Some basic facts about Alzheimer and brain health will help us get a proper perspective and dispel myths and false expectations. Here are some of the latest research data on Alzheimer –

 

continued
  • Todate, Alzheimer is still essentially a mystery to medical science.
  • The known root causes for Alzheimer are old age, where brain cells start to deteriorate; and heredity, namely, genes that are passed on, both of which are beyond our control.
  • There are no known clinical cures yet, only approaches towards prevention.
  • In theory, the causes of Alzheimer, which begin 20 to 30 years before its occurrence, include, on the physical side, drug and alcohol abuse; side-effects from medicine; lack of brain food; and on the spiritual or psychosomatic side, depression, loneliness, anxiety, anger, deep-seated desire for vengeance, idleness, quarrels and bad relationships.
  • But the greatest catalyst to Alzheimer according to medical circles is chronic pain, whether physical or spiritual, namely continued depression or extreme continuous physical pain. There are however exceptions where Alzheimer sets in early even for people who did not experience such chronic pain.
  • New findings reveal that the brain and heart are closely interconnected. A healthy heart enhances a healthy brain, and vice versa. Food for the heart are also food for the brain.
The known approaches to being ‘brain healthy’ and preventing or delaying Alzheimer are simply the exact opposite of its causes, as mentioned above, plus other new findings from research institutions, namely –
  • yes to brain-enhancing food; no to brain-damaging food; whatever they are based on your research;
  • no to negative spirituality as mentioned above;
  • yes to positive spirituality, the exact opposite, namely – peace of mind, happiness, patience, calmness, forgiveness, sincerity, and believe it or not, love;
  • yes to socially active; good friends, good relationships, laughter and good humor, no to idleness, loneliness, introspection, and bad moods;
  • yes to physical exercise, no to laziness, lethargy, and to an imbalance of mental and physical activities;
  • yes to mental exercise and activities, crossword puzzles, continuous non-stop reading of books, research activity on topics that interests you (learn internet research, where data is magically at the tip of your finger);
  • activities that enhance spirituality – helping others, teaching, yoga, meditation and prayer, learning new things and searching for new discoveries, travel, leadership, team activities;
  • lifestyle plays a major role in brain health and heart health;
  • protection from head injuries, helmets in sports and on motorbikes.
These recommendations are condensed nutshell items you need to expand and realize in your lives. You do not need a book to be brain healthy. You do not need detailed primers. In our age, there is an obsession for detailed primers which give pointers one by one. The pointers are so basic and few. Everything you need to know is so simple and obvious, and is given above. These things have been staring you in the face all your life. You just are somehow blind to them or have avoided them for some reasons.

 

The most important and basic thing to remember is –

 

brain health, heart health, spiritual health
and the food we take
are all inextricably intertwined
and forever hopelessly inter-related
food for the heart, food for the brain
are also foodforthesoul
destroy one and we destroy the others
strengthen one and we strengthen the others

 

That is the essential. Everything else is peripheral. All you have to do is internalize the items mentioned above, and apply to your daily lives, in everything you do and think about every minute of your day. Start today, and be a man of the world physically and spiritually in an age on a tailspin, an age of conflicts, chaos, self-survival, and scams. You can do it.

MORINGA MAGIC
Health Tip 04
-
Amazingly, the lowly malunggay (murunggai in Tamil) of the Filipino has been pedestalled by the American as royal medicine, a magic herb with astounding healing powers. This lowly vegetable leaf is most often plucked from nearby trees by the poor who have no money for food. The omnipresent malunggay tree grows abundantly. The western world has now branded it the ‘miracle tree’.
-
The added value from malunggay leaf in a neighborhood lot here to moringa capsule in an American drug store out there is about a hundred fold. One spoon of malunggay paste costs about one US cent compared to the expensive moringa capsule. The moringa capsule is emerging as a multi-milion dollar commodity. How odd that the law of supply and demand is swinging from extremes. Moringa is now a rave because it is noted to very effectively neutralize uric acid and arthritis.
-
This reveals how much we Filipinos take our rich resources for granted. All this time, a magic herb was staring us in the face for centuries. Of course, our herbalists knew it all along, but it was never promoted on a grand scale. But all is not lost. Even while a big American firm mass produces the moringa capsule, there are small scale moringa capsule factories sprouting all over the Philippine landscape today. We have the source, that is important. But remember, so does India and most other tropical and sub-tropical countries in Asia.
-
But why talk of economics. This is a health tip, right? So let’s go on with it. Wikipedia says the humble malunggay “is currently being promoted as a means to combat poverty and malnutrition”. Poverty? Yes, a bundle good enough for a meal costs five pesos or 12 US cents at the local market. Malnutrition? Yes, it contains “all the essential amino acids, and (is) rich in protein, vitamin A, B, and C, and minerals”. Feeding it to cattle in India has increased milk production by 43 to 65%. Also, kings and queens of old used moringa leaves and fruit in their diet to maintain mental alertness and healthy skin. So it is possible it has ingredients to prevent or delay alzeimers, although this has to be scientifically verified. Noted Filipino herbalist Sister Josephine Dereguito, a nun of the Medical Mission Sisters, doctor of western medicine, herbalist and accupuntuirst, who worked with peasants in Mindanao when she was still alive, prescribed the mature black seeds as a radical way to lower high blood pressure with astounding results. She warns that since there are no dosage studies, one has to be carefull not to have an overdose which can plunge blood pressure to dangerous levels. Try small dosages first and increase gradually, as this tiny seed is powerful.
-
Our health tip defies the expensive American moringa capsule. Arthritis or no arthritis, alzeimer or no alzeimer, high blood or no high blood, the malunggay leaves are a source of nutrition, especially protein for the malnourished and vitamin C for those with weak immunity systems.
-
Just buy a bunch of malunggay leaves, costing about five pesos or 12 US cents. Remove the stems, clean with warm brine (do not overheat in order to preserve active ingredients), rinse off the salt, then add a quarter of a cup of drinking water, blender it into a thick paste. Take one spoon in the morning after your morning prayers and before taking anything else. The taste can be unbearable so have your blendered fruit ready to drink right after (health tip no. 03). Refrigerate sealed to extend shelf life. A five-peso bunch is good for about two weeks.
-
One spoon a day is enough, but if you have severe arthritis, you can increase dosage. Since it is organic, there are no known adverse effects. The poor people have been over-eating this daily for centuries, but of course, the cooked version.
-
The malunggay tree is a survivor freak. Just stick a branch into the ground, it grows into a tree, and fast. Some folks in the rural areas have fences made of malunggay trees. Everyday, they pick leaves to their hearts delight, not knowing of its magical qualities, its powerful healing power.
