Blushwood: The Endangered Australian Native Cancer Killer

BL

An amazing discovery has been made in the Atherton Table lands region (near Cairns) of tropical far North Queensland, a family of shrubs and small trees thats flowers, seeds, leaves, roots, wood and bark contain a compound that kills cancerous tumors in a matter of mere days, with no long term side effects. Plants in the Fontainea family, especially Fontainea picrosperma/Hylandia dockrillii, and Fontainea venosa, more commonly known as the Blushwood tree or shrub, has been shown in animal studies, as well as in initial human studies, to be remarkably effective against solid tumors such as melanoma, head, neck and breast cancers, some of the biggest killers in the world each year. The problem is, these much needed miracle plants are largely endangered in the wild, with only a few small pockets being known of for some, and the only propagation of these amazing plants is currently under the control of the pharmaceutical industry.

The initial discovery was made by Dr Victoria Gordon and Dr Paul Reddell of EcoBiotics in 2006, who observed that marsupials find the seed of Fontainea picrosperma/Hylandia dockrillii unpalatable due to an inflammatory chemical present in reasonably high concentrations. Gordon and Reddell sent off a batch of crushed kernels to a commercial lab in Sydney to investigate any possibly useful compounds, finding powerful anti cancer properties in a compound named EBC-46 and powerful wound healing properties in a compound named WH-1. Scientists at the QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute in Brisbane, led by Dr Glen Boyle tested the compound EBC-46, on a tumour cell line and were astonished by its effectiveness. When applied to a laboratory mouse implanted with human skin cancer, the melanoma turned red and purple, then melted before their eyes.

Since then, the drug has been tried experimentally on various animals that were diagnosed by veterinarians and given a poor prognosis, most being considered candidates for euthanasia prior to participating in the study. Dogs, cats, horses, pigs, sheep, ferrets, guinea pigs, goanna, birds, even the endangered Tasmanian devil were tested, amazingly these animals that had been on death’s door prior to the study had their melanoma tumors disappear after treatment in the lab by Dr. Boyle and his team of scientists at QIMR, obliterating tumors in nearly all of them. Dr Boyle stated that “In most cases the single injection treatment caused the loss of viability of cancer cells within four hours, and ultimately destroyed the tumors.”

Herein lies the beauty of the compound, or at least in how it has been seen to work in animals and the early human clinical trials, in most cases, a set of five or six injections does the trick, but a follow up course can be required. Dr. Boyle says EBC-46 works in part by triggering a cellular response which effectively cuts off the blood supply to the tumor. “In more than 70 per cent of pre clinical cases, the response and cure was long term and enduring, with very little relapse over a period of 12 months.”

Evidently, the Blushwood shrubs amazing healing properties do not stop there, it also kicks up the bodies natural healing response, healing the wound with soft, new skin and reduced scarring.“Some of the wound healing we’ve witnessed so far in pilot studies with pet dogs has been remarkable. These animals had chronic non-healing wounds that weren’t responding to current standard of care treatments before being treated with our new compound,” said Dr Gordon. “Based on these extremely encouraging results we are now moving to more fully evaluate the prospect of developing this drug as a treatment for both chronic and acute wounds. Wound healing is a large market ($14 billion annually in the USA alone) where there is significant demand for new and effective products for application in both human and veterinary medicine,” said Dr Gordon.

Of the 344 animals treated to date about two thirds of them dogs 78 per cent ended up cancer free or with tumor mass reduced by more than half. Fewer than nine per cent failed to respond. Bone cancers and highly fibrous tumors have so far proven to be resistant, possibly because not enough EBC-46 can penetrate into the cancer. EcoBiotics is also progressing with its plans in international veterinary cancer markets, following approval from the US Centre for Veterinary Medicine for further studies on the treatment of canine mast cell tumours with EBC-46. This approved study will involve 10 investigative sites and 120 cases for the treatment of canine tumours, and would be the final clinical step to use of the product in the US for canine mast cell tumors. Dr Gordon said once the study was completed, the company would seek regulatory approval from the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority to make the drug commercially available to the domestic vet market.

Multi-centre human Clinical Phase I/II trial, which started in 2015, are showing encouraging results. According to Dr Gordon, the study has now treated eight human patients. “This study is primarily being undertaken to examine the safety of EBC-46,” Dr Gordon said. “The drug has been well tolerated by all patients treated. In addition, sound evidence of efficacy has also been noted in tumors of all the patients treated. This is shown by the appearance of bruising and initial tumor breakdown on the section of the tumor treated. This response in humans is very similar to what has been seen in the successful veterinary studies with EBC-46 where full tumor destruction is noted.” Tumor types in the human trial treated to date are melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma and breast adenocarcinoma.

 

Denise Powell, one of the cancer sufferers who has joined the trial in Queensland, had a tumor in her armpit that was getting progressively worse, “My cancer surgeon said, ‘I can take that one out, if you get any more you might lose an arm.” Doctors injected the trial drug EBC-46 directly into Denises tumor, “In less than 20 minutes the tumor had gone purple then black,” Denise said. “Then within a couple of days the tumor just kind of shrivelled up and died”. Dr Gordon said none of the patients, who were treated at hospitals in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, showed any negative side effects from the drug. “These initial results, that are clearly showing potential for a good safety profile for the drug combined with early signs of efficacy in a range of tumor types, are very encouraging,” said Dr Gordon. “The exciting thing is the drugs are responding in exactly the same way in tumors in cats, dogs and horses. It’s proving our theory that it’s not species specific, and it’s not tumor specific either, because it’s actually working in a range of tumors.” She expected the drug, once it had been trialled on at least 11 more human patients, would become commercially available within the next four years. Encouraging to say the least.

What is not encouraging however is the threatened status of these endangered plants and the way that this discovery has been reported so far in the mainstream media. Whilst this amazing discovery has garnered a small amount of press coverage, in every article in the mainstream media I could find, the only plant mentioned to be containing EBC-46 and WH-1 is Hylandia dockrillii, the Blushwood shrub. None of them mention that Hylandia dockrilli is synonymous with Fontainea picrosperma or that the initial study identified Fontainea pancheri, Fontainea australis, Fontainea borealis, Fontainea fugax, Fontainea oraria, Fontainea rostrata, Fontainea subpapuana and Fontainea venosa as containing EBC-46 and WH-1. With Fontainea picrosperma, or Hylandia dockrillii and Fontainea venosa found to be the most useful. Also they do not mention that numerous other compounds discovered in the fontainea genus also show remarkable promise in regards to killing cancer as well as treating other ailments. Now, this may have been simple over site, the writers editing down to fit word counts or perhaps an attempt keep the compounds EBC-46, WH-1 and the Blushwood shrubs relatively obscure from the public, therefore protecting the discovery for the‘big pharma’ industry. Whilst EcoBiotics and it’s subsidiary QBiotics (which is developing these compounds), are not ‘big pharma’ in themselves, being a small Queensland company, they will have to find a lot of funding if they are ever to get these compounds to market, which means selling the rights to the compound to the big boys.

If EBC-46 gets through to Clinical Phase III, the critical proving trial that generally involves thousands of patients around the world (which it appears so far that it will, with flying colours), it will have burned through all of the cash EcoBiotics have raised, and more. The majority of their 1200 shareholders are mums and dads who have kicked in as little as $1500; the biggest single outside stake in the unlisted company is $1 million. This is more by accident than design. Dr Gordon initially did the rounds of venture finance providers but was rebuffed; prove it up and come back to us, the money men told her.

The expense of getting a drug to market is staggering, which helps explain why so few get through in Australia. Picato, a rare success story, had $130 million ploughed into it by Danish outfit LEO Pharma before being registered by the Therapeutic Goods Administration last year. In a small pond, Australia’s CSL is the nearest thing there is to a big local fish. Yet to meet the development cost it had to license the international rights of Gardasil – the controversial cervical cancer vaccine pioneered by 2006 Australian of the Year Ian Frazer – to US giant Merck. Dr Gordon estimates that EBC-46 will require north of $600 million to be made into a medicine – completely out of their league. She and Reddell have structured the company so that the subsidiary, QBiotics, contains the intellectual property and could be peeled off for outright sale or a stock market float. Which is most likely what will end up happening seeing the extraordinary promise of the Blushwood extracts EBC-46 and WH-1.

The rights to these compounds ECB-46 and WH-1 may be owned by Ecobiotics through their subsidiary QBiotics, but they do not own the plants they are derived from. They certainly do deserve credit and to do extremely well out of their discovery and hard work. I in no way wish to disparage the truly fantastic work Dr Victoria Gordon and Dr Paul Reddell of EcoBiotics have done and genuinely do hope that they get these compounds to the market, as they are sorely needed no matter how it happens. What I do not want to see however is only ‘big pharma’ growing these plants and controlling access to them. This is where I hope the intrepid readers of New Dawn magazine and Tricho Serious Ethnobotany can help out.

I would like to call upon the New Dawn and Tricho Serious Ethnobotany readers in the areas where these plants grow, to actively hunt down these plants in habitat and procure seed and or cuttings, so that these amazing life saving plants themselves can be saved, for all of us. The nine currently known species of Fontainea grow naturally in Queensland and New South Wales (6 sp), New Caledonia and Vanuatu (1 sp), and Papua New Guinea (2 sp). Some species are commonly named Blushwood, but not all and fruit from spring through to autumn. One species, Fontainea oraria, the coast Fontainea, is known only from 10 living plants growing on private property near Lennox Head in northern New South Wales. Its status is critically endangered. Locating the two most promising species Fontainea picrosperma/Hylandia dockrillii and Fontainea venosa should be relatively easy with Fontainea picrosperma/hylandia dockrillii being located in and around the Atherton Tablands near Cairns and Fontainea venosa being located in South East Queensland around the Gympie area. Exact habitat locations for Fontainea picrosperma/hylandia dockrillii can be found in the resources section following this article.

It should be noted that experimentation with any parts of these plants is potentially dangerous, although the researchers are adamant that the drug has potential to be used internally as well as the current external treatments, the necessary work is yet to be done. “The sting in the tail is that it has to be put on the outside of the body,” explains QIMR Berghofer director and CEO Frank Gannon. “It is highly toxic if it gets into the body unless it can be controlled”. Also there has been absolutely no study on what a raw plant extract would do, if anything at all and may be very dangerous if ingested considering the inflammatory response it triggers, which first led to its discovery.

In conclusion, these endangered miracle plants need us to protect them, spread them around and study them. We simply must not allow the only access to these plants to be through a big pharmaceutical company that cares only for profit, not people. The fact that these endangered plants have proven to be so effective and relatively safe, worries me greatly. We run the risk of having this amazing discovery being simply bought and shelved, as cures are not as profitable as “treatments”, such as the ineffective but lucrative chemotherapy “treatments” that slowly milk your wallet before killing you. We have pushed these plants to the brink of extinction through habitat encroachment, whilst the disease they cure is ravaging our population worldwide, maybe we don’t deserve such miracle plants such as the Blushwood shrubs, considering our treatment of the Earth and her bounty, but it is not too late to put people before profit.

If you are able to procure seed or live plants please feel free to contact Brett at bretloth@gmail.com.

Curing Cancer by Nutrition, Mineral Cell Salts, Detox and Energy: Alternative Treatment Options to Chemotherapy

cure

by AYS.

This article goes into comprehensive detail and explanation as to the current and even ancient understandings of what “cancer” really is on 3 different levels, from a cellular level, a molecular level and an atomic/energetic level,  as well as the importance of belief and mindset when curing on the sub-atomic metaphysical, energetic level.  It will discuss food and dietary cures, cellular putrefaction and corpuscle breakdown, energetic cures including healing as voltage, mind-body mirror systems, body detoxification, proper breathing and cellular oxidisation, the understated importance of mineral cell salts and the dire importance of alkaline cellular PH balance over acidic PH balance.

We will cover why body cells become “cancerous” and offer information on alternative treatment remedies that have been suppressed by governments, big pharma and various cancer society cash cows who are getting rich on pretending to find cures and stand to lose billions in annual profits should alternative cancer treatment become mainstream public knowledge.  At the end of this article we will give links to information regarding the suppression of cancer cures.

The information in this article is based on 6 years of intensive research into alternative cancer cures.  The idea is not to persuade you either way, but to let you know of the alternative options for cancer treatment that are and have always been available, despite media blackout or lack of coverage.

It is entirely up to you if you choose to go the route of mainstream medical treatment via chemotherapy and other drastic treatments such as radiation, which are extremely dangerous to the other healthy non-cancerous cells in the body.  This would most likely be your doctor’s recommendation, but there are several good reasons why millions of people are refusing chemotherapy and radiation and going the route of natural cancer healing instead.

It should be noted that there are dozens of known cures to cancer and the purpose of this article is to make the reader aware of these cures, aware of the controversy over some of the cures and other “claims” of cures which are yet unproven,  so that you may start researching and making changes in your daily habits to find out which will work for you.  It is your body and your disease to deal with and you deserve to be educated on all possible treatments and possibilities, not just the ones pushed by doctors and mainstream big pharma propaganda.

Belief also plays a huge role on the energetic-metaphysical level, so it is important that you find a combination of cures that you feel comfortable with and believe in.  You need to know what is available to make an educated decision for yourself as to which treatments will be best for you, should you decide a natural treatment path over chemotherapy.  If it is your belief that you should go with a physician prescribed treatment of chemotherapy and or radiation, then at least you have all of the options and knowledge to weigh out and can feel confident about whatever decision you make, as your beliefs will always be your own and one of your best assets and strengths in fighting disease.

At the very least, proper alkaline diet, breathing techniques, vitamins and mineral cell salts should be supplemented to your regular doctor prescribed cancer treatment. Barring food allergies, there are NO negative side effects to eating healthy food, juicing organic fruits and vegetables, breathing correctly and ingesting the mineral cell salt building blocks of healthy cells.  There are NO adverse side effects to cutting out highly acidic foods and beverages that cause cellular breakdown and fermentation.   These changes will also help combat the damage done by chemotherapy and radiation to non-cancerous healthy cells, which cannot specifically single out and target cancerous cells while leaving other healthy cells alone.

So why consider an alternative to chemotherapy or radiation?  Did you know…?  (click picture to see a larger, easier to read version)

CHEMOCONS

 

What is cancer on a cellular level? 

According to both traditional Chinese medicine and more enlightened studies in the West, cancer occurs when a mass of cells in various tissues become so toxic and starved of organic nourishment that they can no longer “breathe” properly, i.e. they can no longer eliminate toxic wastes and absorb nutrients.  Hence they literally “ferment”in their own toxic wastes, causing the cells to mutate and become cancerous “tumours”.

This condition can be caused by a number of factors.  The primary cause is a chronic poor diet, one heavy in cooked meats, overcooked eggs, too much sweet and or processed foods loaded with refined starches and sugars and a lack of raw, uncooked foods which provide enzymes, mineral cells salts and organic nutrients.

Another major contributor to toxic cells is insufficient circulation of essence and energy (chi, orgone, prana) due to lack of exercise and shallow breathing.  Chronic stress and depression also play a major role by poisoning the bloodstream with toxic by-products of adrenaline and other “fight or flight”  reactions.

 

Detoxification first and foremost

First and foremost therapy is detoxification with a series of 7-10 day fasts or cleanses with daily colonic irrigations or salt water flushes to irrigate the colon.  Thereafter a diet of raw fruit and vegetable juices is indicated. Breathing exercises are extremely beneficial to cancer patients, in conjunction with detoxification and proper organic nutrition, because they circulate the nutrients to the cells and suffuse all tissues with abundant supplies of enzymes, essence and energy (chi, or gone, prana).  We will come back to breathing and detoxification methods later in this article.

So long as the body has toxins stored in it’s cells and colon, the enzymes taken in new food will always go towards removing the toxins already in the colon and other storage areas in the body.  If your colon is storing toxicity and waste, enzymes that might naturally go towards the cancerous cells may instead go to the normal toxic areas of the colon and the cancer cells won’t get the energy and nutrition they need to heal.

This author personally recommends the “Master Cleanse” by Stanley Burroughs mixed with daily salt water flushes to clean the colon of mucus and toxin. While the master cleanse is in essence a two week lemon juice detox, lemons digest as Alkaline PH balance and the citric acid and cayenne pepper eat away and destroy all of the mucus in the body and colon.  The mucus is where excess cancer causing toxins are stored in the body and colon.  Once these toxins and mucus are dissolved and removed, the blood, oxygen, mineral cell salts and enzymes can give their full attention and do their job destroying and removing putrified, toxic cancer cells in the body. http://healthandlight.com/mastercleanse.pdf

 

The TAO nutritional cure

After the body has been detoxed with a cleanse or detoxification program, here are what the ancient Chinese Taoists have been using for thousands of years to cure cancer.  It should be noted that cancer behaves as a pleomorphic fungus and cannot survive in a body that has an alkaline PH balance.  It needs an acidic PH balance in order to continue to putrefy and grow.  More on PH balance later in this article.  The one thing all of these alternative cancer cures have in common is that they load the body with foods, mineral cell salts, spices, herbs and other agents which are extremely alkaline in PH balance when digested by the body.

 

Foods to avoid

No matter which cancer treatment you decide to go with,  it is vital that you cut out the acidic foods from your diet immediately and only starting eating foods and raw juices that are digested with an Alkaline PH balance.  These highly acidic PH balanced foods are the contributing factors to the growth and spread of the cancer.

You should avoid all animal products, especially animal proteins and fats, i.e. no cooked meats, no foods high in fat, eggs, milk, cheese, dairy, etc.  You should cut out all refined sugars and starches, carbohydrates like bread, pasta, rice and pastries.  Cut out acidic oils and vegetable oils such as corn oil. Fish oils are the exception, more on this later.  Alcohol is high in sugar content and extremely acidic and should be avoided at all costs.  Coffee and dark non-herbal tea should be avoided, most especially with milk, cream or sugar added in.  Drink only lighter herbal teas, ginseng, etc. Stay away from heavily salted foods and cured products.

Eat ONLY fresh, raw organic fruit, vegetables, legumes, juices, extracts, herbs and spices.

 

Beneficial foods and juices

Carrot Juice:  This is perhaps the best vegetable juice for detoxifying tissues.  It also helps alkalise the bloodstream, which in cases of cancer and toxemia is always highly acidic.  Raw carrot juice delivers abundant supplies of readily assimilable vitamins, minerals and enzymes to diseased cells, giving them the fuel they require to sluff off wastes and rebuild cells.  Jay Kordish, the then 75 year old who promoted raw juice diets in America, was cured of bladder cancer at age 25 with a blend of raw carrot and apple juice, taken a glass at a time every hour, 13 times a day under the supervision of the great raw juice therapist Dr. Max Gersen.

Drink at least 1.5 quarts freshly extracted raw carrot juice daily, in conjunction with breathing and other exercises, for as long as therapy is required.  It is important that you squeeze or juice fresh, organic carrots daily.  NEVER use store bought juices.  Store bought juices are pasteurised under extreme heat which ruins all of the enzymes, minerals, vitamins and essence from the vegetables and fruits.

Here is an article on using carrot juice to cure stage 4 cancer:   http://worldtruth.tv/man-and-woman-use-carrot-juice-to-cure-stage-4-cancer/

Grapes: Raw grapes, especially the DARK variety, are renowned as excellent cancer therapy when taken as an exclusive diet for prolonged periods.  Entire sanatoriums in Russia are devoted to this cure.  Grapes detoxify all tissues and organs and restore organic integrity to starved cells.  In 1925, South African Johanna Brandt cured herself of cancer with an exclusive grape diet and wrote a book about it called “The Grape Cure”.  In this book she recommends eating 2-4 pounds (1-2 kilograms) of dark grapes every day, for 1 week to a month or more.  It is vital to chew the skins and seeds of the grapes, not just the watery parts.  http://www.amazon.com/Grape-Cure-Johanna-Brandt/dp/0879040025/ref=sr_sp-atf_title_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1400143023&sr=8-1&keywords=The+Grape+Cure

Cabbage Juice:  Fresh, raw cabbage juice has been proven to cure severe ulcers in the stomach, duodenum, and intestines.  As such, it is also an effective therapy for cancers of the stomach and intestinal track.  High concentrations of organic chlorine and sulphur in raw cabbage cleanse the mucus membranes of the stomach and intestinal tract, where cancerous tissues often form.  It is generally recommended to take cabbage juice in combination with raw carrot juice, due to it’s strength.

4 ounces cabbage juice mixed with 8 ounces carrot juice, three times daily.  Remember, freshly juiced, not store bought.

Raw Beet Juice: Beet juice is highly beneficial as a liver detoxifier and blood cleanser.  In cases of cancer, therefor, it purifies the bloodstream so that the blood can do it’s work of detoxifying the body and delivering nutrients to starved cancer cells.  By detoxifying the liver, it promotes clean blood, which is filtered by the liver.  Also indicated in cases of liver cancer.

8 ounces of pure beet juice, twice daily.  Another option is 6 ounces of beet juice mixed with 6 ounces of carrot juice, 3 times daily.  Tablets and dry crystals of pure beet juice extract are also very good.

 

Alkaline vs Acidic PH Foods

There are hundreds of foods, herbs and spices that are known for their cancer curing and preventing properties, such as garlic, turmeric, cabbage, soya beans*, onions, carrots, tomatoes, all green and yellow vegetables, citrus fruits, fatty fish, herbal tea, seafood, cruciferous vegetables and dark leafy legumes, cabbage, broccoli, collard greens, etc.

What these all really have in common is that they are loaded with one or more of the 12 organic mineral cells salts and they are all highly Alkaline in their PH balance when digested by the body, not Acidic.  Even though citrus fruits have citric acid, they are still digested as Alkaline PH in the body.

As stated before, cancer cells are considered as Pleomorphic Fungi and cannot survive in an environment which is highly Alkaline in PH, receiving clean blood, nutrients and oxygen. It is important whether fighting or preventing cancer that you immediately cut out the foods and beverages in your diet which are more Acidic in PH balance than Alkaline.  Here is a good food chart to help you decide what you should or shouldn’t be putting into your body:

http://www.soulcraft.co/info/acid-alkaline_foods_chart.htm

You want to cut out foods from your diet that are checked with red, dark yellow or yellow on the chart in the link above. These foods are highly acidic in PH balance.  Cancer cannot survive in a well oxygenated environment with an Alkaline PH balance.  Start eating and juicing raw foods that have checks in the light green, green and dark green on the above chart.  The darker the green, the more Alkaline PH and the more cancer fighting properties the food has.

http://earthweareone.com/nutritional-healing-from-cancer-the-fundamentals-of-an-alkaline-diet/

 

Mineral Cell Salts

All of the body’s cells are made up of combinations of the 12 basic mineral cell salts and are activated in fusion by the mineral salt Iron Phosphate, also known as Ferrum Phos.  In the presence of an Acidic PH level, stress, toxins, lack of proper oxygen supply and other conditions the fluids of the body and blood become depleted in Iron (Iron Phosphate, Ferrum Phos) and three forms of Potassium known as Kali Sulph (Sulphate of Potassium), Kali Phos (Potassium Phosphate) and Kali Mur (Chloride of Potassium).  In cases of stomach cancer, Natrium Phosphate (sodium Phosphate) will also be lacking.

When this happens, the corpuscles of the body slowly suffocate and “putrefy”. THIS IS THE TRUE CAUSE OF CANCER on a biochemical level.  Without Iron, cellular combustion can not go on in the body.  A mix of the correct mineral cell salts and Iron are the legitimate cure for this putrid and virulent disease.

Normally these mineral cell salts and Iron are abundant in raw, uncooked fruits, vegetables, legumes, herbs and certain spices.  Most modern diets are lacking in these things or the modern body is too Acidic in PH and lacking proper nutrients and oxygen to perform cellular combustion, hence putrefaction of the cells.

Table salt (sodium) is not a healthy salt and should be avoided.  These are mineral cell salts which make up the parts of the body’s cellular tissues, table salt is not one of the recommended cancer fighting salts and the grains are too course to be assimilated into the cells unless specially prepared and crushed in micro homeopathic quantities.

It cannot be overstated that it is essential when fighting cancer to supplement your diet with the following mineral cell salts to replenish the putrefied cells and get corpuscle combustion started.  These mineral cell salts can be found in your local health store in tablets that can be chewed or easily dissolved in water or herbal tea and drank.  They should all be taken together, three times daily with the prescribed amount of tablets listed on the bottles.

You can also search online to find out which natural foods already have these various Potassium, Iron and Natrium mineral cell celts abundant in them already.  “You are what you eat.”

these forms of Potassium mixed with Iron is the biochemical cancer healing agent.

  1. Kali Phos (Potassium Phosphate)

  2. Kali Mur (Chloride of Potassium)

  3. *Kali Sulph (Sulphate of Potassium)…the most vital of the three Potassium mineral cell salts

  4.  *Ferrum Phos (Iron Phosphate) absolutely necessary for the corpuscles and cellular combustion needed with the preceding Potassium cell salts

5. Natrium Phosphate (for cases of stomach cancer, along with the three Potassium mineral salts and the Iron Phosphate)

You can look online for a copy of “Dr. Scheussler’s Biochemistry” to read more about the functions and processes of mineral cell salts and how they work in cellular biology. http://www.amazon.com/Dr-Schuesslers-Biochemistry-J-Chapman/dp/1603861688/ref=sr_sp-atf_title_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1400148493&sr=1-1&keywords=dr.+schuessler%27s+biochemistry

Also recommended is the book “The Zodiac and the Salts of Salvation” by Dr. George Washington Carey and Inez Eudora Perry.  Both of these works are invaluable. http://www.amazon.com/The-Zodiac-Salts-Salvation-Homeopathic/dp/0877287082/ref=sr_sp-atf_title_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1400148166&sr=8-3&keywords=the+zodiac+and+the+salts+of+salvation 

 

Food: The Miracle Cancer Medicine

The American National Cancer Institute says that 1/3rd of all cancers are linked to diet.  British expert Richard Doll put the figure as high as 60%.  It can’t be argued.  Ever since scientists started probing a connection between cancer and diet in the 1970’s, the antidote has been coming up “fruits and vegetables” consistently and relentlessly.  There is an energetic relationship on an atomic level, a layer underneath the cellular level, which we will cover later in this article.

Dr. Peter Greenwald, a director of the Division of Cancer Prevention and Control at the American National Cancer Institute said “The more fruits and vegetables people eat, the less likely they are to get cancer, from colon and stomach cancer to breast and even lung cancer.  For many cancers, persons with high fruit and vegetable intake have about half the risk of people with low intakes“.

A review of 170 studies from 17 different nations by Dr. Gladys Block of Berkley came up with the same conclusion: people who eat the most fruits and vegetables compared to those who don’t slash their risks by 50%.  This includes cancers of the lungs, colon, breast, cervix, oesophagus, oral cavity, stomach, bladder, pancreas and ovary.

Some studies who that eating fruit and vegetables just twice a day, rather than less than three times a week cut the risk of lung cancer by 75%, even in smokers.

Here are the plant foods under investigation by the National Cancer Institute for their known anticancer potential:

Garlic, Cabbage, Liquorice, Soya Beans, Ginger, Carrots, Celery, Parsnips, onions, herbal tea, turmeric, citrus fruits like oranges, grapefruit, lemon, lime, whole wheat, flax, brown rice, tomato, aubergine, peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, oats, mint, oregano, cucumber, rosemary, sage, potato (raw uncooked), thyme chives, cantaloupe melon, basil, tarragon, barley, shiitake mushrooms, yoghurt and dark berries. If you must eat meat, it is recommended to eat oily fish such as mackerel over lean fish. Oil fish are loaded with Omega-3 oils thought to help block cancer.

when you compare these foods to both the list of Alkaline foods in the link earlier in this article, along with a list of foods that contain Iron and the three various Potassium mineral cells salts, it is no surprise that the majority of these plant foods turn up on both of those lists as well.  It is the combination of the mineral cell salts, Alkaline PH value and various other vitamins and natural compounds in these foods that heal cancer.  Breathing, exercise and stress relief also play a vital role along with nutrition.

It should be noted that cooking any vegetables or fruits over 60 celcius destroys the enzymes (chi, or gone, prana, life energy) and depletes much of the minerals and other compounds, leaving them nutritionally void and worthless.  If you must cook them, quickly flash fry them asian/mongolian style for less than a minute so that the insides are still raw and crispy, even if the outsides are warm and nutrition less.  Steaming vegetables is the same, they should still be raw and crunchy on the inside.  Flash steam them, do not long steam.

Other beneficial cancer fighting compounds contained in plant foods

These plant foods contain other cancer fighting vitamins and compounds such as Vitamin A, Carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Riboflavin, Calcium, Folic Acid, Lycopene, Diallyl Sulphide, Quercetin, Ajonene, triterpenoids in liquorice and Beta Carotene.  Garlic and onions have over 30 carcinogen fighting compounds in them.

There are many more of them.  For a full understanding of which plant foods contain which cancer fighting compounds, pick up a copy of  the book “Food – Your Miracle Medicine” by Jean Carper.  This book contains full detailed explanations of how these cancer fighting compounds work in the body and sites the studies to back up this knowledge.  The information is too long and detailed for this article to go into fully.  You can find the book in your local bookstore or here online:    http://www.amazon.com/Food-Your-Miracle-Medicine-Paperback/dp/B00IJ047KW/ref=sr_sp-atf_title_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1400150204&sr=8-4&keywords=food+your+miracle+medicine+carper

 

Specific cancer fighting foods for specific types and locations of cancer

Lung Cancer: Carrots and dark green leafy vegetables, any yellow-orange vegetables or fruits, the deeper orange the better, broccoli, spinach, kale, dark green lettuces, collard greens, brussels sprouts, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, green tea, beans and low-fat milk.

Colon Cancer: Cruciferous vegetables and carrots. Here are some of the main cruciferous vegetables:  http://www.thefreedictionary.com/cruciferous+vegetable   Wheat bran, vegetables, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, yoghurt, seafood, foods rich in fibre, calcium and vitamin D.  Stay away from high-fat foods, red meat and alcohol.

Oral, Oesophageal and Pharyngeal Cancer: Fruit.

Laryngeal Cancer: Fruit and vegetables, foods high in carotene such as carrots, sweet potatoes, green leafy vegetables, pumpkin, etc.

Stomach Cancer: Fruit in general, lettuce, onions, tomatoes, celery, squash-raw, not cooked, cabbage, herbal tea, garlic, onions, soya beans, fruits and vegetables rich in Vitamin C.  Stay away from table salt, cured and smoked meats.

Pancreatic Cancer: Fruits and vegetables, especially citrus, tomatoes and legumes.  Stay away from cured pork products like bacon, ham and cold cuts and red meat.

Bladder Cancer: Vegetables, specifically carrots and also fruit.

Thyroid Cancer: Cruciferous vegetables.

Breast Cancer: Fish oil, cabbage, collard greens and other cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, high vitamin C fruits and vegetables, beans, wheat bran, olive oil.  It is recommended to stay away from meat, saturated fatty foods, Omega-6 vegetable oils such as corn oil and alcohol.

 Skin Cancer: eat foods containing antioxidants and rich in Omega-3 type oils, such as oily fish.  Stay away from oils with Omega-6 fatty acids, including corn oil, safflower oil and sunflower oil. Too much Omega-6 in proportion to Omega-3 kicks the prostaglandins into overdrive, encouraging the onset and growth of tumours.  In study of mice, showed oils high in Omega-6 spurred the growth of melanoma. Another study showed patients with skin melanoma ate twice as much Omega-6 poly-unsaturated oil as a similar group without cancer.

Endometrial Cancer:  Carrots, spinach, broccoli, cantaloupe melon, lettuce and other foods high in carotene.  Also calcium rich foods reduce the risk greatly, though be sure to get alkaline ph calcium foods over too much acidic.

Cervical Cancer: Foods high in folic acid (a B vitamin) such as greens, dried beans. Foods high in lycopene such as tomatoes.  These foods can stop the virus that leads to 80% of the cases of cervical cancer.

Prostate Cancer:  Fatty diet seems to be the culprit in prostate cancer.  A low-fat, high alkaline diet is prescribed.  Stay away from high fat milk, cheese, eggs and meat, especially fatty meat.

 

Apricot Seeds and the Vitamin B-17 Controversy

Apricot seeds contain high doses of laetrile, also known as Vitamin B-17.  It is banned by the FDA because like many other foods it contains Amygdalin, believed to be a cyanide poison threat.  However it is a known alternative cancer cure and there are entire villages in Tibet and other countries that eat vast amounts of apricot seeds and other berry seeds rich in Amygdalin, with no history or reported cases of cyanide poisoning.

 

Amygdalin contains four substances. Two are glucose, the third is benzaldehyde, and the fourth is cyanide. Yes, cyanide and benzaldehyde are poisons if they are appear as free molecules not bound within other molecular formations. Many foods, including vitamin B12, contain cyanide. But they are safe because the cyanide remains bound and locked as part of another molecule.

There is an enzyme in normal cells to catch some free cyanide molecules and render them harmless by combining them with sulfur. That enzyme is rhodanese. By binding the cyanide to sulfuric rhodanese, it is converted to a cyanate, which is a neutral substance. Then it is easily passed through the urine with no harm to the normal cells.

Cancer cells thrive on fermenting sugar instead of metabolizing with oxygen. Amygdalin contains two glucose molecules. So the amygdalin molecules are quite appealing to sugar hungry cancer cells. And cancer cells contain an enzyme that normal cells do not share, beta-glucosidase.

This enzyme is considered the unlocking enzyme for amygdalin molecules. It releases both the benzaldehyde and the cyanide, creating a toxic synergy that destroys cancer cells. The cancer cell`s beta-glucosidase enzyme causes cancer cells to self destruct by opening themselves to the cyanide and benzaldehyde.

This is how cancer cells are tricked and targeted by amygdalin. Chemotherapy does not discriminate. It kills healthy cells and destroys one`s immune system.

Though the author of this article would definitely take them, it is not legal to recommend them and they must be purchased through the internet in most countries.  Here are some links to get you started on your own research into this matter so you can form your own educated opinion about using laetrile and amygdalin rich foods and supplements.

Cannabis Oil, raw juiced cannabis and controversy

The release of the Rick Simpson documentary “Run from the Cure”, coupled with the advent of Youtube, Vimeo and the internet itself has exploded the cannabis cancer treatment debate on the scene.  There are hundreds of thousands of articles and videos with cancer success cures using both cannabis oil and juiced cannabis.

Obviously the major concern is that cannabis is illegal by most governments in most places.  Despite it being one of the most effective cancer treatments known, it gets very little attention by mainstream media and mainstream medical journals because it is both illegal and big pharma definitely does not want people to know how effective this treatment is.  It is up to you wether the legal risk is worth the health risk, depending on where you live, how you get it, grow it, etc.  This article will give you a few links on where to start researching cannabis cancer treatment and links to recipes for making cannabis oil yourself, should this be the route you choose to go.

The psychoactive ingredient THC is NOT active unless heated and smoked or cooked in a certain way with butter and other fats to activate the THC.  In other words both cannabis oil and raw eaten or juiced cannabis do not get you high.

Cannabis is one of the most alkaline PH balanced plants there is and there are plenty of articles and videos on the anti-tumor effects of cannabinoid receptors.  It has been a cure all miracle plant for cancer and hundreds of other diseases by both ancient and indigenous cultures for thousands of years.  It really does make one question the true motives by corporate controlled governments to keep this plant listed as an illegal substance.

How to make cannabis oil (keep in mind that using water as the solvent can take over an hour or more to boil off. Some people suggest Everclear 90proof rather than butane, rubbing alcohol, etc. It will boil off in a matter of minutes and not soak up other parts of the plant.):  http://naturalhealthwarriors.com/make-your-own-cannabis-oil-for-chemo-alternative/

The “Baking soda cure”: Sodium Bicarbonate

There is a huge debate going on whether or not cancer cells are a result of the body defending itself from the fungus given by Candida, a yeast-like organism living in the body in small amounts. Cancer behaves like a fungus, whether or not it actually is one or not.  Some say fungus and putrefied, acidic, toxic cells are pretty much the same thing.  They at least go hand in hand.

As usual, this is another controversial treatment.  There are plenty of testimonies and documentaries on the internet to research.  One thing is for sure, Sodium Bicarbonate can eliminate Candida, and Candida can definitely lead to cancer if untreated.

It should be pointed out that “baking soda” is not actually only Sodium Bicarbonate, though Sodium Bicarbonate is the main ingredient in Baking Soda.  Some baking sodas have heavy metals and other toxic things in them. If you are going to do this cancer treatment or prevention, make sure you check the label of your baking soda to make sure there are no other toxic additives.  If possible, get pure Sodium Bicarbonate from your local pharmacist or health store.

Sodium Bicarbonate is highly Alkaline in PH and also helps in the body’s production and release of it’s own potassium, as well as keeping the body’s organs in Alkaline PH balance.  These are the reasons this author recommends looking into this treatment seriously.  Besides that, it’s cheap.

How important is bicarbonate and being alkaline: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqcYpIFiwOkSalivary Glands and Saliva

part 2:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Kw_jNFRyBQ

Baking Soda cancer protocol: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yl8Y8I_TsjI

Baking Soda cure: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KnEQFno794s

Saliva is produced in and secreted from salivary glands. The basic secretory units of salivary glands are clusters of cells called an acini. These cells secrete a fluid that contains water, electrolytes, mucus and enzymes, all of which flow out of the acinus into collecting ducts.

Within the ducts, the composition of the secretion is altered. Much of the sodium is actively reabsorbed, potassium is secreted, and large quantities of bicarbonate ion are secreted. Bicarbonate secretion is of tremendous importance to ruminants because it, along with phosphate, provides a critical buffer that neutralizes the massive quantities of acid produced in the forestomachs. Small collecting ducts within salivary glands lead into larger ducts, eventually forming a single large duct that empties into the oral cavity.

Most animals have three major pairs of salivary glands that differ in the type of secretion they produce:
parotid glands – produce a serous, watery secretion.

submaxillary (mandibular) glands – produce a mixed serous and mucous secretion.

sublingual glands – secrete a saliva that is predominantly mucous in character.
The basis for different glands secreting saliva of differing composition can be seen by examining salivary glands histologically. Two basic types of acinar epithelial cells exist:
serous cells, which secrete a watery fluid, essentially devoid of mucus.

mucous cells, which produce a very mucus-rich secretion.

Bicarbonate ions in saliva act as buffers, maintaining a pH between 6.5 and 7.5.

Stomach

Sodium Bicarbonate is made in the stomach. For every molecule of sodium bicarbonate produced in the stomach, an equal amount of HCL is produced. HCL acid is a waste product of sodium bicarbonate production. The formula is NaCL + H2O + CO2 = NaHCO3 + HCL. The sodium bicarbonate in the stomach creates even more alkalization of the food in the stomach and prepares it to be transformed into stem cells in the small intestine. The HCL acid falls into the gastric pits away from the food. The normal pH of the stomach with food is 7.2 or higher. Yes, you can drink alkaline water with your meals to buffer or neutralize the poisonous HCL.

Pancreas – Pancreatic Juice

Pancreatic juice contains sodium bicarbonate which neutralizes the acidic material from the stomach.

Brunner’s glands

Brunner’s glands (or duodenal glands) are compound tubular submucosal glands found in that portion of the duodenum which is above the hepatopancreatic sphincter (Sphincter of Oddi). The main function of these glands is to produce a mucus-rich alkaline secretion (containing bicarbonate) in order to:
protect the duodenum from the acidic content of chyme (which is introduced into the duodenum from the stomach);
provide an alkaline condition for the intestinal enzymes to be active, thus enabling absorption to take place;
lubricate the intestinal walls.
They also secrete urogastrone, which inhibits parietal and chief cells of the stomach from secreting acid and their digestive enzymes. This is another form of protection for the duodenum.
They are the distinguishing feature of the duodenum, and are named for the Swiss physician who first described them, Johann Conrad Brunner.

Liver – Bile

Bile has a golden colour and is nearly isotonic with blood plasma. The bile contains NaCl and bicarbonate in concentrations similar to those of plasma, but the bile contains more Ca2+ (bound to bile acids) than plasma. We normally produce 0.5-1 litre of hepatic bile per day with bile salts, lecithin, cholesterol and 1.5 g of bile pigments.

The liver secretes bile, which is stored in the gall bladder between meals. During digestion, bile is excreted along the bile duct (from the gall bladder) and the hepatic duct (from the liver) into the duodenum (the first part of the small intestine).

Bile is an aqueous mixture containing several substances, including bicarbonate ions to neutralize the acidic chyme arriving from the stomach, and bile salts to emulsify fats in the first stage of their breakdown.

Kidneys Produce Bicarbonate

The kidneys alone produce about two hundred and fifty grams (about half a pound) of bicarbonate per day in an attempt to neutralize acid in the body.

Bicarbonate ions neutralize the acid conditions required for chronic inflammatory reactions. Hence, sodium bicarbonate is of benefit in the treatment of a range of chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. Sodium bicarbonate is a well studied and used medicine with known effects.

JUICES VS. GMO’s

How To Make Turmeric Juice: A Powerful Healing Beverage.

tumeric
Turmeric is known to be one of the most powerful healing herbs. It is great for bones and joints as it has anti-inflammatory properties. It prevents metastases from occurring in many different forms of cancer.

Turmeric’s also a natural liver detoxifier and a kidney cleanser, and it speeds metabolism and aids in weight management. Plus it heals and alleviates conditions of depression, psoriasis, damaged skin, arthritis and more.

For these reasons, turmeric is ubiquitous both in Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine.

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
5-7 inches turmeric
5-7 tamarind
2 lemons
raw honey
water
blender
strainer
bowl
mason jar(s) or other glass jar with lid
1. Peel turmeric. Your fingers will turn yellow. Don’t worry! All-natural dish soap gets it right out. If your cutting board or countertop get stained, slather on dish soap and rub it in. Let it soak in for 5 min or longer, then scrub with water and sponge. The turmeric stain will vanish!

  1. Crack and open tamarind. Make sure you get all the inner roots off, too. We’re only going to use the inner fruit.

  2. Fill a big pot with water, put peeled tumeric in and let it boil for at least 20 minutes until the water becomes a rich and vibrant marigold color.

  3. While the tumeric water is boiling, get a pan and pour 1 inch of water in with the peeled tamarind. Move the fruit around with a wooden utensil, mix it in with the water so it can melt and dissolve into a jam like texture. More water shouldn’t be needed, but if it’s lookin’ a bit dry, pour water in as needed.

By this time, you should be able to see the little seeds coming out. When the texture looks soft, turn heat off and let it cool down.

  1. Go back to the tumeric water. By now, the color should look ready. Pour a little bit of cold water to lower the temperature. Take the turmeric water and pour it into the blender with the tumeric. We boiled it so the root could soften and have more flavor, now it’s ready to buzz in the blender for even more flavor and richness! Blend, blend, blend. The color now should look like an extra extra fiery marigold.

  2. Go back to the tamarind in the pan. Pour substance into the strainer that is placed on top of a small bowl to catch the tamarind. Swish the jam like substance around in the strainer with the wooden utensil– we only want to use the soft bits of the fruit. No seeds, no seed peels.

  3. Pour the tamarind that has been caught in the bowl into the blender with the tumeric water. Buzz it around again.

  4. We’re almost done. Squeeze your lemons into the blender. Now take the blender and pour your yummy juice into your mason jar(s). Add honey to taste, close with lid, shake it up to mix.

  5. Store in fridge up to 3-4 days and drink daily!

Enjoy!

Herbs for energy

10 HERBS

Constantly listless? Tired? Feeling your energy quickly being drained even before the day ends? Perhaps you, like many others, need energy boosting solutions. But rather than like the million others that often turn to coffee or energy drinks, you can resort to safer solutions like herbal remedies. Besides, much of these costly energy boosters sold in the market today are based on existing botanical remedies.

Moreover, kicking your energy with caffeine like coffee tends to strain your brain’s adrenal cortex by causing it to work harder than normal to boost energy. A 2010 study has also found caffeine-based energy beverages to be loaded with sugar and carbohydrates and are even erroneously marketed as reversing alcohol related impairments such as motor coordination and visual reaction time, providing consumers a false sense of control.

Given that the high caffeine spikes of energy drinks or coffee are perhaps not the best thing for you , what alternatives then may you have for improving energy? Whether to boost your immune system and fight infection or improve mental alertness and cognitive performance or fight signs of ageing and even depression, herbs are reported to be a natural source for restoring your energy. The herbs below are some of the common herbal solutions to move from being lethargic to energetic:

10 Energy Boosting Herbs

Ginseng

This herb’s Latin name, Panax which means “all-heal” speaks of the natural belief that ginseng could provide an all around remedy for just about any ailment including reducing stress, improving immune system and promoting youthfulness. These are all needed so you can draw more energy from your body for other activities than having it fight infections. [1] Scientists have long found ginseng to be an adaptogen which means unlike caffeine-rich beverages, ginseng actually nourishes rather than strains the adrenal cortex to allow it to produce energy the way your body is naturally designed to do so. [2] Consequently, one study in 2002 found ginseng to be helpful for increasing libido and sexual performance due to ginsenosides chemicals it contains. [1]

Garlic

Another “G” that is not only easily accessible but also hailed by herbalists as by far the most effective antibacterial plant to support the immune. [4] In a mouse model study, garlic consumption was shown to have positive effects on red blood cells which stimulate CO production, a compound said to be behind garlic’s many physiological effects including being pro-circulatory, neuro-protective and anti-inflammatory. [5]

Gotu Kola

Research shows that dried leaves of gotu kola are a rich source of vitamins and minerals that stimulate the circulatory system. This enhanced blood circulation has been found in clinical trials to improve functioning – from the brain to delay mental degeneration, improve memory and learning abilities—down to the functioning of the legs. [1]

Ginko Biloba

Like gotu kola, ginko is an effective memory and energy aid that improves mental clarity due to increased blood and oxygen flow to the brain. [1]A neurobiology lab in Switzerland has discovered that ginko extracts boost mitochondrial activities within the brain and reduce oxidative stress levels which can slow the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. [6]

Green tea

Like ginseng, green tea is known for its many beneficial effects. Recent studies show that apart from being anti-cancer and helping you slim down, the antioxidants in green tea also prevent premature ageing to leave you with more energy. Like coffee, it may contain caffeine but unlike coffee, has potent anti-bacterial properties that combat infection. [1] Also, if you take matcha, you benefit further from the nutritional content of the “solids” in the tea leaves.

Licorice

This herb is also known to boost one’s energy level, endurance and stamina. Studies show that it works by regulating the production of hormones from the adrenal glands. These hormones are said to be associated with some chemical, emotional and physically-induced stress. As you may have already known, stress is a crucial factor that triggers issues on endurance, stamina and fatigue. [7]

Cacao

Chocolate is said to be a good energy booster. But do you know what makes chocolates effective in boosting one’s energy level? It’s its cocoa content which is derived from cacao. Cocoa actually contains compound theobromine that stimulates the central nervous system of the body. This stimulant creates a similar yet less powerful stimulating effect than caffeine. [8]

Rhodiola Rosea

If you are feeling low and less energized during the day, then rhodiola can be of great help to you. Known as an excellent remedy for stress, rhodiola is believed to be effective in strengthening the body, and make it more resilient to physical and emotional challenges that lie ahead. In addition to its ability to improve exercise performance, rhodiola is also claimed to be effective in increasing one’s capacity for different types of endurance exercise.

One research showed that rhodiola works by increasing the oxygen-carrying capacity of the red blood cell, which results to improved energy level, stamina and vitality especially in times of stress. Research revealed that this herb offers additional protection to the central nervous system of the body against oxidative stress. Furthermore, rhodiola is thought to help in relieving anxiety, improving sleep quality and quantity as well as in lifting depressed mood. [9] It is also thought by some to be aphrodisiac.

Ashwagandha

This is probably one of the most popular energy-boosting herbs available today. Along with ginseng, reishi mushroom and astralagus, ashwagandha is one of the herbs that promise to increase the body’s endurance, vitality, stamina and energy. Better known in the Orient but becoming popular in the West, ashwagandha is also considered effective in promoting longevity as well as in strengthening the body’s immune system. [10]

Reishi Mushroom

Known to boost the body’s immune system, reishi mushroom is a powerful herb that is claimed to be effective in enhancing one’s energy level. In addition to that, reishi mushroom is widely believed to be beneficial in promoting general well being.

Some researchers believe that reishi mushroom contains powerful compounds that make it effective in dealing with insomnia, asthma, fatigue, coronary heart disease, type II diabetes, chronic hepatitis B, rheumatoid arthritis and certain types of cancer. [11]

Consumer Alert: Most Common Vitamins Contain GMOs

July 31, 2013

 vitamins

A Natural News investigation reveals that an alarmingly large number of multivitamins and individual nutrient vitamins are formulated with ingredients derived from genetically modified corn.

This is the “dirty little secret” of the vitamin industry, but it’s not one the mainstream media will touch because they refuse to admit GMOs are a problem to begin with. Those in the know, however, realize that eating any ingredients derived from GMOs may expose them to the BT insecticide chemicals found in GM corn.GMOs are truly “hidden” in vitamins because the GM-derived ingredients are so heavily processed that all DNA is destroyed in the process, thereby destroying any footprint of genetic modification. Genetic ID tests, in other words, require particles of the food to remain relatively intact so that PCR lab equipment can replicate genetic sequences. Heavily processed ingredients such as high-fructose corn syrup, maltodextrin and ascorbic acid have no genetic material remaining, thereby sweeping their origins under the rug.This is one reason who so many vitamins sold today are formulated with GMOs. This includes virtually ALL the popular multivitamin brands sold at grocery stores and pharmacies, by the way.

List of ingredients that are usually GMO

The Non-GMO Project Verified website lists these ingredients as commonly harboring GMOs:

Amino Acids
Aspartame
Ascorbic Acid
Sodium Ascorbate
Vitamin C
Citric Acid
Sodium Citrate
Flavorings (“natural” and “artificial”)
High Fructose Corn Syrup
Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein
Lactic Acid
Maltodextrins
Molasses
Monosodium Glutamate
Sucrose
Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP)
Xanthan Gum
Vitamins
Yeast Products (such as yeast extract)

From this list, you can hopefully realize that:

• Nearly all “vegetarian” foods are GMO (loaded with yeast extract and soy).

• Nearly all sodas and soft drinks are GMO (HFCS, aspartame).

• Nearly all storable “emergency” food sold on the market today is GMO. (TVP, soy, MSG, yeast extract)

• Nearly all canned soups are GMO. (MSG, yeast extract)

• Nearly all children’s meals and snacks are GMO. (HFCS, MSG, soy, corn)

In other words, just about everything the consuming masses are eating is contaminated with GMOs.

Here’s a closer look at some of the more common GMO ingredients in vitamins and health products:

GMO ingredient #1 – Maltodextrin

Maltodextrin is a powdery, starch derivative of corn. It is used everywhere in the nutritional supplements industry, as a “filler” for fruit powders and drink mixes, as a “sweetener” for low-sugar health foods, and as a flow agent for vitamin capsules.

Unless it is certified as non-GMO, all maltodextrin should be assumed to come from GMO sources. The maltodextrin manufacturing supply chain isn’t even geared up to provide non-GMO maltodextrin, as the large-scale factories that produce the material run so much GM corn that there would be significant cross-contamination even if they tried to pull off a non-GMO run.

The few companies that offer non-GMO starches and sweeteners are increasingly gaining attention across the industry. I’m aware of one company called Austrade, Inc. that offers a full line of non-GMO corn-based starches and sweeteners, including non-GMO maltodextrin.

According to the company, they were the first producer to receive “Non-GMO Project Verified” approval for non-GMO maltodextrin.

Non-GMO maltodextrin is also making its way into health products such as “Ultima Replenisher,” a healthy replacement for those junk sports drinks made with GMO corn syrup, salt and low-grade minerals. Ultima Replenisher is completely GMO-free, relying on a non-GMO maltodextrin from certified sources.

A small company named Allergaroo.com also makes non-GMO microwaveable foods that are designed to be free of common allergens such as casein, soy, wheat, peanuts, dairy, GMOs, etc. (Although I have to wonder about the whole microwave concept…)

GMO ingredient #2 – Ascorbic acid

In the delusional world of western thinking on nutrients, ascorbic acid is called “vitamin C.”

It isn’t vitamin C, of course. Real vitamin C is a broad spectrum of synergistic compounds, never just an isolated, homogeneous molecule. But don’t tell that to doctors, scientists or journalists, because they’ve all bought into the “ascorbic acid is vitamin C” delusion.

So nearly all the common “vitamin C” pills are nothing more than heavily refined ascorbic acid derived from GM corn. That’s why those pills don’t work, by the way. So when the mainstream media declares, “Vitamin C shows no benefit…” in clinical trials, what they are really saying is that heavily processed ascorbic acid isolated from genetically modified corn doesn’t improve your health, and that’s no surprise.

Look on the labels of your cheap, low-grade vitamins and multivitamins… you’ll see “ascorbic acid” listed there, meaning you are eating GMOs. Throw those away. They’re crap.

If you want real vitamin C, your best bet is to eat camu camu, which is the planet’s highest source of natural, full-spectrum, food-based vitamin C. (The full synergy of nutrients, not just isolated chemicals.) Click here to see high-grade, certified organic camu camu powder at the Natural News Store.

(By the way, as a side note, the FDA came to our warehouse and took a large number of samples of our camu camu to run lab tests in their Arkansas lab headquarters. They were obviously looking for heavy metals and pesticide residues. The lab tests, as we knew they would, came back 100% clear. That’s because we’re one of the few companies to actually test all the raw materials we import. So now we have official confirmation that even the FDA agrees that our products are clean. In truth, our own stringent lab test requirements are MORE STRICT than the FDA!)

There are also some vitamin companies making non-GMO vitamin C formulations. Expect them to be expensive because all non-GMO vitamin C must be sourced outside the United States. There is currently no U.S.-based producer of non-GMO vitamin C. (It simply doesn’t exist.)

GMO ingredient #3 – Sucrose (heavily used in children’s vitamins)

Take a look at almost any children’s vitamins and you’ll find they’re made with several GMO ingredients: aspartame, sucrose and often citric acid, too.

In fact, children’s vitamins are by far the most toxic because they’re usually formulated with a much higher concentration of toxic ingredients such as artificial sweeteners, artificial colors and GMO-derived materials.

Children should be eating superfoods or food concentrates, not toxic vitamin pills. Remember, too, that the low-grade vitamin pills are manufactured by companies largely owned by the pharmaceutical industry. They have every incentive to make sure their vitamins actually cause health problems rather than prevent disease. This boosts their long-term profits as sick children become Big Pharma customers for life.

MegaFood receives the first non-GMO certification in the industry

When it comes to high quality food-based nutrients in a pill format, nobody beats MegaFood, the supplier Natural News has chosen as its supplement partner.

MegaFood’s manufacturing facility is the first and only facility in the United States to be certified non-GMO. Certification of all the company’s products is under way, but I have personally been informed that the entire product line has been 100% non-GMO since 2007. (Actual certification takes time and will be announced when the process is complete.)

Consumers looking for truly non-GMO sources of health-supporting minerals can check out MegaFood’s Balanced Minerals formulation.

Those seeking thyroid support should take a look at MegaFood’s Thyroid Strength formulation.

And for non-GMO multivitamins made from real food rather than isolated chemicals, MegaFood offers a full line of daily multivitamins for men and women.

Join the call for GMO labeling on vitamins and supplements

As companies like MegaFood blaze forward in achieving non-GMO certification, they are going to force everyone else in the industry to follow suit (or lose customers). That’s because consumers don’t want hidden GMOs in their health supplements, obviously.

People take vitamins based on the belief that vitamins won’t poison them. Unfortunately, this is a false assumption given the dirty tricks played by the pharmaceutical industry in churning out harmful, synthetic vitamins loaded with toxic substances such as GMOs.

That’s why I support the mandatory GMO labeling of vitamins and dietary supplements. It’s also why my own brand of superfoods and dietary supplements — Health Ranger Select — is 100% non-GMO.

See, it’s not just about labeling GMOs in foods. GMOs need to be labeled (or ultimately, banned) in everything we eat, and that includes vitamins and dietary supplements.

Most health-conscious consumers already know to avoid GMOs in foods, but they fail to avoid them when selecting vitamins and supplements. So they’re taking in quantities of GMO-derived materials in their health supplements, and that defeats the whole purpose of being “health conscious” in the first place.

Until GMOs are labeled (or banned) on vitamins and supplements, you have to be vigilant in avoiding GMO-derived ingredients such as maltodextrin, sucrose, ascorbic acid, citric acid and others.

Unless the product is certified non-GMO or comes from a company that is diligently working on the certification process, there is a better than 99% chance that they contain GMOs.

And what happens when you eat GMOs? Just ask these lab rats, which were fed a combination of GM corn and glyphosate, the weed killer chemical often used on genetically modified crops:

THE CHEMISRY OF GEMINI (the twins, i.e. the Lungs) : MAY 21 to JUNE 21 (Dr. George Carey & Inez Perry)

zodiacsaltwheel

BIOCHEMICAL CELL SALT: KALI MUR (Kali Muriaticum, POTASSIUM CHLORIDE)Lungs, Pleura Glands, Bronchial Tubes, all Fibres and Tissues, Shoulders and HandsSymptoms showing lack of this mineral cell salt include: exudations through skin as in scarlet fever, measles, chicken pox, swollen glands, throat irritation such as diphtheria, tonsillitis, mumps, inflammatory rheumatism, hawking of thick white mucus, sick headache from sluggish liver, want of bile, thick white mucus from the eyes, granulated eyelids, earache with swelling glands and gray or white furred tongue, catarrhal condition of the middle ear, cracking noises, dullness of hearing from throat affections or swelling of middle ear, stuffy colds in the head, thick white discharge from the throat, faceache from swelling of gums and cheeks, canker of the mouth, ulcerated sore throat, gastritis, constipation, typhoid, cancer, peritonitis, cystitis, gonorrhea, syphilis, leucorrhea, pleurisy, epilepsy, acne, boils, chronic swelling of feet and legs, creaking of muscles, eczema, erysipelas.
One of the chief characteristics of the Gemini native is expression. The cell salt KALI MURIATICUM (POTASSIUM CHLORIDE) is the mineral worker of blood that forms FIBRIN and PROPERLY DIFFUSES IT THROUGHOUT THE TISSUES OF THE BODY. This salt must not be confused with the Chlorate of Potash, a poison (chemical formula KC1O3). The formula of the Chloride of Potassium (Kali Mur) is KC1.
Kali Mur molecules are the principal agents used in the chemistry of life to build fibrin into the human organism. The skin that covers the face contains the lines and angles that give expression, and thus differentiates one person from another via sacred geometry, therefor the maker of fibrin has been designated as the birth salt of the Gemini born native.
In venous blood, fibrin amounts to three in one thousand parts. When the molecules of Kali Mur fall below the standard three in one thousand parts, the blood fibrin thickens, causing what is known as PLEURISY, PNEUMONIA, CATARRH, DIPTHERIA, ETC.
When the circulation fails to throw out the thickened fibrin via the glands or mucous membranes, it may stop the action of the heart. EMBOLUS is a Latin word meaning “little lump”, or “balls”, therefor to die of Embolus or “heart failure” generally means that the heart’s action was stopped by little lumps of fibrin clogging the auricles and ventricles of the heart. WHEN THE BLOOD CONTAINS THE PROPER AMOUNT OF KALI MUR (POTASSIUM CHLORIDE), FIBRIN IS FUNCTIONAL AND THE SYMPTOMS REFERRED TO ABOVE DO NOT MANIFEST. Gemini means “Twins”.
Gemini is the sign which governs the United States. The astral colors of Gemini are Red, White and Blue.
MERCURY (or kali MUR-cury) is the governing planet of Gemini. The gems are beryl, aquamarine, and dark blue stones. In BIBLE ALCHEMY, Gemini represents Issachar, the 9th son of Jacob, and means “price, reward or recompense.” In the symbolic allegories of the New Testament, Gemini corresponds to Judas, which means “service or necessity.” The perverted ideas of an ignorant dark-age priesthood made “service and necessity” infamous by a literal rendering of the alchemical symbol, but during the present Aquarian Age, the Judas symbol will be understood and the disciple of “service” will no longer have to submit to “third degree methods”.
THE ANALYSIS AND SYNTHESIS OF GEMINI AND KALI MUR OR CHLORIDE OF POTASSIUM
Walt Whitman.. ”A noiseless, patient spider, I mark’d where, on a little promontory it stood, isolated, Mark’d how to explore the vacant, vast surrounding, it launched forth filament, filament, filament out of itself, Ever unreeling them, ever tirelessly speeding them. And you, O my soul, where you stand, surrounded, surrounded in measureless oceans of space, ceaselessly musing, venturing, throwing – seeking spheres to connect them, till the bridge you will need be formed, till the ductile anchor hold, Till the gossamer thread you fling, catch somewhere, O my soul.”
The spider is a creature of air as well as of earth. Standing, as our poet so beautifully expresses it, on a material foundation, it launches forth into space, fairy like threads, spun from the substance of its own body, a thick, viscous fluid, secreted by certain glands in the abdominal region. Air currents lift this aerial raft, bearing its creator on its way and eventually, by means of this silken cable, it ties up another port.
The student of ESOTERIC BIOCHEMISTRY revels in the perfect analogy existing between the above lines, the METAPHYSICAL, PHYSIOLOGICAL and ASTROLOGICAL interpretations of GEMINI, and it’s allocation with POTASSIUM CHLORIDE or KALI MUR. For the entire story has to do with OFFSHOOTS, THREADS, FILLAMENTS, FIBRES or OFFSPRING.
In the preceding chapters we have considered the outpouring of energy into undifferentiated matter, the creative “esse” (essence) of life , and it’s impregnation by fire. It manifests in nature as the Spring time, and it manifests in the human body by the generation of electrical energy in the cerebrum ( or Aries, the lamb of God) .
Then, by the addition of Natrium Sulph to Kali Phos, a different chemical product results. The GREAT WORK at last begins, a protuberance appears, Aaron’s Rod buds and the back brain, or Cerebellum forms.
The Sun in its journey now enters the sign of Gemini on May 21, and as there are three weeks of June and only one week of May in this period, it is termed the JUNE month. The word June is derived from the Latin verb “Jungo”, and means a “joining or joint, a fibre or shoot”. It is a “thread”, a filament branching off from the main stalk, whose source is the bud (gemma) or swelling brought forth by the Sun in Taurus from the previous month’s energy and chemistry. We have an identical interpretation of the word “bulb”, a “protuberance”, derived from the same root as “Bull”, which is the animal glyph for the sign Taurus, by no coincidence.
In the term “Gemmation”, we have direct evidence of the true meaning of Gemini, as it refers to a new organism developed from a “projection”. It may be separated off or remain attached, the shoots of a plant being an example of the latter attached, and human progeny (offspring) an example of the former detached. This latter differs in that it takes place within the body.
Juno, a consort of Jupiter, refers to this sign, Gemini and Sagittarius (Jove’s house) constituting the two ends of one pole, that pole of growth and travel.
Under the name Juno, Lucina, the goddess of childbirth is represented, which again checks the original interpretation and the glyph of the twins, or Gemini. In India, the twins were popularly termed Mithuna, or the boy and the girl, while in Arabian astrology they are Al Tau’aman, a term replete with esoteric significance. AL or EL meaning “God”, TAU meaning “cross”, and AMEN or AMAN meaning “concealed or hidden” (the biochemical cross of god hidden within the human body).
As the inner meaning of Taurus (“Tau” or cross and “Rus” or dew) is the “dew cross” corresponding with Golgotha, or “the place of the skull”, this MANNA (or “Man”) or “BRAIN ESSE”, (ESSENCE) comes down to FORM MAN, which is an anatomical fact. Thus, the DIVINE MAN OR SPIRIT IN US ACTUALLY BECOMES SUSPENDED ON A CROSS OF MATTER. It’s body constitutes that cross (TREE OF NERVES, TREE OF LIFE). The oldest glyphs brought down from times remote picture man crucified on a tree. Later, much of the true interpretation was lost because of the change from tree to cross.
It must be understood that the TWO NERVOUS SYSTEMS CONSTITUTE THE LIVING PHYSIOLOGICAL TREES APON WHICH EVERY HUMAN BEING IS CRUCIFIED, FOR THROUGH THEM ALL OF THE FUNCTIONS OF THE HUMAN BODY ARE CARRIED ON. They register in themselves, the kind of life each person lives, for EVERY THOUGHT REACTS INSTANTLY ON THESE TWO NERVOUS SYSTEMS.
The brain and nerves have a chemical formula, as do all parts of the body, and NOT UNTIL THEY ARE CHEMICALLY PERFECT WILL ABSOLUTE SELF CONTROL BE POSSIBLE. This is why the story of Freemasonry is not relative to “character” building, as has been perverted in their own learning, but ACTUALLY REFERS TO BODY BUILDING, human character will take care of itself WHEN THE BRAIN CELLS ARE CHEMICALLY PERFECT.
On page 167 of Part 1 of the “Secret Doctrine”, Madam Blavatsky quotes the following: “Lead the life necessary for the acquisition of such knowledge and powers, and wisdom will come to you naturally.” (Perfect the body’s chemistry and achieve enlightenment or Christ consciousness).
As the Sun is exalted in Aries and the Moon in Taurus, neither one can accomplish anything in the great work without Mercury (Kali Mur, potassium chloride), who truly is the messenger of the gods (the builder of the fibers of the two nervous systems which carry out the desires via the mind fluid, the bearer or carrier of light or electricity).
The CEREBRO-SPINAL SYSTEM IS THE GENERATOR AND CARRIER OF PHYSIO-CHEMICAL ELECTRICITY, WHICH IS ENERGY OR LIFE. This explains why Mercury is associated with Gemini as its ruler, meaning that all the activities which have to do with this Zodiac sign and house are of a Mercurial nature.
The different RATES OF VIBRATION by means of which all Nature’s work is accomplished have received the names of Planets, in order that humanity may study them and the effects they produce, not only in nature, BUT IN THE HUMAN BODY. Metaphysically, Mercury is MIND, physiologically, the Cerebro-Spinal system (THE NERVES), chemically it is QUICKSILVER, which is an oily or fatty substance, the “argentum vivum” or “living philosophical silver”, for we learn that the true interpretation of “quick” is “living”. Quicksilver means “living silver”.
The root of the word Mercury is the Latin word “Merx”, meaning “goods” or “merchandise”, and when the various offices and attributes ascribed to him are analyzed, a vast treasure house of information is available.
In ancient times this god Mercury (Mind) was identified as the Greek god Hermes, Son of Jupiter and Maia. He was the messenger of the gods, inventor of the lyre, god of oratory, conductor of the souls of the dead to the lower world (animal desires and senses) and he was the patron father of merchants and “thieves”.
As messenger, Mercury (Mind and Sensory Nerves) utilizes the electrical energy of thought and the subtle nerve fluids created by Father Jupiter, the giver of all good things. In action he may do this positively and hence beneficially, or negatively and destructively. In either case Mercury stands for “Merchandise, wares or goods”, utilized in commerce or exchange by the mind in the body. As god of oratory he REFERS TO THE MENTAL POWER NECESSARY TO BECOME A GOOD SPEAKER, one who voices truth.
The reference to the lyre is concerned with a mysterious ORGAN IN THE BRAIN having that name and which is the REAL SOURCE OF THE SINGING VOICE. It is the positive pole, while the negative is the place where sound is emitted, or the vocal chords in the throat.
The explanation of Mercury as “father” of merchants and thieves is the same as that given above. MIND (THE FATHER OF THOUGHT), CAN ACTUALLY ROB THE BODY BY BECOMING THE PRODIGAL SON AS THE BIBLE STATES, AND WASTING IT’S MERCHANDISE ON RIOTOUS LIVING.
THE BRAIN “ESSE” OR ESSENCE AND THOUGHT POWER OR ELECTRICITY CONSTITUTE THE TRUE MERCHANDISE OF EVERY HUMAN BODY AND THE “GREAT WORK” IS TO PERFECT IT SO THAT IT WILL BE ABLE TO ATTRACT THE HIGHEST FORM OF ETHER (AKASHA) INTO THE BODY! We become “thieves” when we make no effort to do this, stealing not only from ourselves, but from others as well. To rob another or one’s self of this most precious merchandise is truly the SIN AGAINST THE HOLY GHOST.
In the Scorpio division of the Zodiac, astrology gives us complete information relative to thieving. The human body is the rightful owner of all this is created in it by mind and when this is understood, the Biblical statement relative to “inheriting the earth” will at last become clear. To inherit means to “hold possession of”.
DEATH IS THE SEPERATION OF SPIRIT FROM THE BODY-MEANING THERE IS INSUFFICIENT CELL SALT MATERIAL FOR IT TO WORK OR FUNCTION THROUGH, it’s piece of real estate (body) is of poor quality, IT’S MINERAL OR CHEMICAL FOMULA IS IMPERFECT, SO MUCH SO THAT IT CANNOT SUPPORT LIFE. Hence it leaves. When the chemical formula created by the Divine Chemist for the perfect man is complied with, then indeed will the GREAT WORK have been accomplished.
The CEREBRO-SPINAL SUBSTANCE IS THOUGHT MATERIAL, CREATIVE ESSE, MANNA, ELIXER OF LIFE, THE AMBROSIA OF THE GODS, THE GOLD OF OPHIR AND THE TREASURE OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, which becomes “Argentum Vivum”-quick or living silver, in the human body.
And thus we find the true interpretation of “merchandise” perverted along with everything else, for the words Mercury and Mind are derived from the same root. OUR MIND MUST HAVE GOODS WITH WHICH AND THROUGH WHICH TO EXPRESS. The old slang phrase “you haven’t got the goods” is accurate even though it cannot be termed “attic wisdom”, delicate wit.
As the mind (Mercury) can be capable of recognizing facts or their absence while surrounded by a mass of mental rubbish in the literature of today, or of any age, even so is the CHEMICAL Mercury endowed with the same power. It is an “amalgam” and can separate gold and silver from other ores-truly releasing them from their bondage with impurities. It is also a solvent of metals. It’s work in nature is analogous with that of the human body.
Again we have another and perfect correspondence in the thermometer and the barometer, whose tubes are filled with mercury which measures air temperature and pressure. Mercury expands and rises in the tube under the influence of heat vibrations. It was invented and named by man for the simple reason that it was patterned from his own spinal canal which contains living (Quick) Silver. The lower or negative bulb is the Sacral (sacred) Ganglia, the upper and positive being the Cerebrum.
Another mechanical device patterned from the spinal canal is the syringe, the Latin word for which is “syrinx”. One end is attached to a source of supply, (the Cerebrum), and pressure applied to a bulb at the lower end releases the fluid. Even so in the human body Euphrates, the River of God, is robbed of the Water of Life.
In Astrology, Gemini is a NEUTRAL sign, and the three other neutral signs Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces constitute the neutral, harmonious or purification cross. You will find them placed accordingly on the cross of the Zodiac. It has been understood by most students of Astrology that beginning with Aries as positive and masculine, every alternating sign is feminine. It can however be very illuminating to consider every third sign as neuter or neutral.
When the fact is recalled that there are neuter planets it is only logical to differentiate the Zodiac signs in the same way and the true astrological story will never become clear unless Gemini, Virgo, Saggitarius and Pisces are viewed in the neutral way. The information which actually proves this to be true can be found by studying the nature and use of the 4 mineral salts which
Dr. Carey allocated with them, namely Kali Mur, Silicea, Kali Sulph and Ferrum Phos. After carefully studying every point in each of the twelve chapters you will readily see on reconsidering the information given relative to the purification of the cross, that the amazing story it tells is none other than that of PURITY, HARMONY AND PURFECTION, THEREFOR IS NEUTER.
In his Dictionary of Sacred Language of All Scriptures and Myths, G.A. Gaskell says of Gemini: “A symbol of the third period of the cycle of life. The “twins” signifying the HIGHER AND LOWER SELVES, or the individuality and personality on the mental plane. These are the two centers of consciousness in the soul for the higher and lower activities. In the constellation Gemini are the two stars, Castor and Pollux, which are symbols of the personality and the individuality, in accordance with the story of the Dioscuri.”
While the above definition is one of the best we have had, it is rather misleading in the light which PHYSIOLOGY throws on it. THERE IS REALLY BUT ONE SELF, AND THAT IS THE SPIRIT, THE INDIVIDUAL.
WHEN THE PHYSICAL VEHICLE, THE BRAIN, IS CHEMICALLY PERFECT, THEN SPIRIT, THE INDIVIDUALITY, MANIFESTS AS SUCH UNHAMPERED. It’s manifestation is limited and colored by the imperfect vehicle in and through which it endeavors to function. It is cramped, chaotic and spasmodic. It harms the body and injures others. This, in its various and varied manifestations, we term PERSONALITY or LOWER MIND.
A concrete example of this is the difference between the vibrations produced by a perfect musical instrument and one dilapidated and utterly incapable of producing anything but discordant sounds. Both keyboards are manipulated by a gifted artist, THE SPIRIT.
Mr. Gaskell quotes from Smith’s Classical Dictionary relative to Dioscuri, the Twins, or Castor and Pollux, the two principle stars of Gemini. “They were the sons of Leda. Pollux and Helen only were children of Zeus, and Castor was the son of Tyndareus, also the daughter Clytemnestra.” The fact that their mother was mortal (living in the lower mind) makes them half human, half divine, and emphasizes the dual nature of the brothers.
The key to the real meaning of Castor and Pollux is in their etymology. Castor is derived from the Latin word “Castus”, meaning pure, spotless, abstinence from sensual pleasure, chastity, while “Pollux” means to defile or pollute.
THUS SPIRIT UTILIZES THE WARES OF THE BODY OR PHYSICAL MERCHANDISE IN PERFECTING IT AND MAKING IT SPOTLESS AND PURE. If the substance of the body is otherwise employed it defiles and pollutes. It is needless to say that the great majority of human beings come under the negative interpretation of Gemini. THEY ARE LIVING IN THE LOWER MIND.
Gradually we will learn, through the suffering which inevitably results from misuse of the cerebro-spinal substance and electrical energy the great lesson which must be driven home to each one.
Madam Blavatsky says, on page 122 of Part II “But the variant of the Leda allegory which has a direct reference to mystic man is found in Pindar only, with a slighter reference to it in Homeric hymns. Castor and Pollux are, in it, no longer the Dioscuri, but become the highly significant symbol of the DUAL MAN, THE MORTAL AND THE IMMORTAL.
Not only this, but as will now be seen, they are also the symbol of the Third Race, and it’s transformation from the Animal Man into a God-Man with only an animal body.”
In the Greek allegory we read “Pollux will either remain immortal, living eternally in Olympus, or, if he would SHARE his brother’s fate in all things, he must pass half his existence underground, and the other half in the golden heavenly abodes.”
This semi-immortality which is also to be shared by Castor is accepted by Pollux. And thus the twin brothers live alternately, one during the day and the other during the night. IN ALL ESOTERIC WRITINGS REFERENCES TO DAY HAVE TO DO WITH THE HIGHER MIND, LIVING THE LIFE WHICH LEADS TO ILLUMINATION, WHILE THE NIGHT SYMBOLIZES THE LIFE OF SPIRITUAL DARKNESS.
Exoterically, Gemini deals with short journeys, letters, mail carriers, message boys, telegrams, and methods of communication, children and relatives, all of those things which have underlying them the idea of threads (of thought), fibers, twigs, emanations..that which branches off from a parent.
In the India Vedas, the Twins are called “the physicians of Heaven”, and this probably refers to the influence of Mercury, whose Caduceus is, to this day, used as the official insignia of our army medical corps and among physicians generally.
The explanation of caduceus is one with which real students must become thoroughly conversant, as there is no one thing which so clearly links us up with , and at the same time gives us the physiological key to what we have termed “Religion”.
The word is derived from the Latin “Cadus” meaning a vessel or jar, also from the verb “cado” meaning to fall. A dead body is termed a “cadaver” and is derived from the same root. Webster’s Dictionary informs us that caduceus is derived from “cadere”—meaning to fall. Summing up our various interpretations, we find the HUMAN BODY IS A JAR OR VESSEL CONTAINING THE WATER OF LIFE.
When a living body falls lifeless it is considered a cadaver. It is a desert, a deserted place from which the Water of Life has departed.
THE INNER MEANING OF CADUCEUS THEN IS CONCERNED WITH THE FALL OF MAN. If this is the negative interpretation, since it deals with destruction, then the positive interpretation we find the plan for the rise or ascent of man from the animal man back to the god-man.
In other words, this is the RETURN TO THE FATHER, which consummation is the atonement (at-one-ment). As the word “ment” is derived from the Latin “mentis” meaning “mind”, right here we have the complete explanation, ONE MIND, MIND FOREVER MANIFESTING HARMONIOUSLY, BENEVOLENTLY, THE CHRIST MIND.
The vehicle (body) has been chemically perfected, therefore there is no longer any antagonism, no mental chaos causes by mind-Spirit-SEARCHING FOR MATERIAL WITH WHICH TO MANIFEST. THE FATHER NOW HAS SUFFIENT MOTHER (MATER-MATERIAL) WITH WHICH TO PRODUCE HARMONY.
This brings us to our physiological allocation of Gemini, and to the consideration of those parts assigned by the ancients to Gemini, the BRONCHIAL TUBES AND LUNGS, THE SHOULDERS, ARMS AND HANDS. Some astrologers include the nerves, which is correct if one considers their basic formation as fibers, for other cell salts must be present in order that they may respond to either sensory or motor impulses. THE SENSORY NERVES MUST BE STUDIED UNDER ARIES, THE MOTOR NERVES UNDER LEO.
All nerves are essentially filaments. TO THE ABOVE LIST I ADD SKIN AND GLANDS ESPECIALLY, but it must be remembered that ALL FLESH is constituted of fibers and filaments, so there is very little of the body which does not have flesh filaments for its basis. These constitute “man’s garment”.
Referring to the interpretation of June from the Latin word meaning Join or Joining, we must bear in mind the fact that nerves and bronchial tubes represent the part of the body which first “branches off”, after the formation of the cerebrum, cord and cerebellum.
The Bronchi are the branches which convey air to the lung cells which we may term the twigs and leaves. WITHOUT LUNGS THERE WOULD BE NO MARRIAGE IN CANA OF GALILEE, NO TURNING OF THE WATER OF LIFE INTO WINE. FOR HERE IS WHERE OXYGEN (SPIRIT OR PRANA), COMBINES WITH THE HUMAN BLOOD FOR THE ARTERIAL SYSTEM, PRODUCING A COMBINATION OF EARTH, AIR, FIRE AND WATER of which so very little is really known.
How amusing it becomes to the student of synthesis, when he reads that this “supposed” turning of water into wine in an ancient city in times remote may today serve as a reason for even ministers of the gospel voting against prohibition (written in 1920’s). They say “At least give us wine, for since Jesus himself made it to serve to wedding guests, it must be quite alright.”
The word “Cana” means “reeds” in Hebrew, while “Galilee” means “circle”.
Their combination CLEARLY REFERS TO THE LUNGS AND THEIR FUNCTION OF COMBINING AIR AND BLOOD, WHICH IS THE WATER OF LIFE. IT BECOMES THE WINE OF LIFE WHEN THE SPIRIT IS ADDED.
Is it not clear now how utterly perverted the whole subject of beverages has become? A clean, healthy, pure body nourished by THIS brand of wine, the wine of life, makes for a CLEAR INTELLECT AND A BRAIN WITHOUT COBWEBS, WHICH IS THE NECESSARY QUALIFICATION FOR UNDERSTANDING.
Thus we have a good foundation for wisdom. On the other hand, a stomach filled with any other kind of wine results in a befuddled brain and the entire absence of reason. We have as yet so little sense that it behooves us not to drown it.
We link up again with Mercury (mind) as ruler of Gemini when we dwell on the fact that air, breath, oxygen and Spirit energize and make active the mind for which Mercury stands. The following quotation from the scriptures gives us a clear cut picture of it: “there is a spirit in man, an inspiration (inbreathing) of the Almighty giveth it understanding”. The KIND of air and the amount we inbreath depends on our physical chemistry, but that is another story.
OUR MENTAL POWER IS OUR METAPHYSICAL MERCHANDISE OR MONEY WHICH NEEDS MUST HAVE BRAIN SUBSTANCE THROUGH WHICH TO MANIFEST AND WHICH CONSTITUTES OUR PHYSIOLOGICAL COIN-REAL TREASURE.
That ASTRO-PHYSIO-CHEMICAL BOOK, THE BIBLE, also tells us that “The Blood is the Life of the Flesh. “ FOR IT CARRIES NOT ONLY NUTRIMENT TO EVERY CELL, BUT AIR AS WELL. EVERY CORPUSCLE IS A WATER-AIR CREATURE, truly a salt water inhabitant, a HUMAN FISH.
The eager, open minded searcher for truth will find many questions relative to religion answered in these pages. Truth is very simple and easily understood, when the brain is in good condition, for there is a clear and logical explanation for every problem. BUT THE CEREBRAL CELLS AS WELL AS ALL OTHER CELLS MUST BE SUPPLIED WITH THE PROPER MINERAL FOODS AND SALTS, AND KEPT FREE FROM ACID ACCUMULATIONS AND POISON. It is a process like everything else, and time is required.
In the myth of the Three Fates, Clotho, Lachesis and Atrophos were the SPINNERS OF THE THREADS OF HUMAN DESTINY. They were provided with shears with which to cut it off when they pleased, and according to Hesiod, were the daughters of Night (lower mind). Clotho held the distaff, Lachesis spun the thread and Atrophos cut it off when it was ended. The Fates dwelt in the deep abyss of Demogorgon, and with unwearied fingers DREW OUT THE THREADS OF LIFE.
Demogorgon was said to be the genius of the soil or earth, fabled to be the LIFE AND SUBSTANCE OF THE PLANTS. He was depicted as a little old man covered with moss who lived underground.
Gemini is the branching off month or period of the year (late May-June). It has to do, in utero, with the branching off of the nerves from the head, to form the body. Thus it does not require much imagination to see that the story of the Three Fates is concerned with the three decans (divisions) of Gemini.
The distaff refers to the bass of the brain, where 75% of the nerves of the head concentrate and CROSS, appearing to “wind” themselves up. In some mythological pictures the thread is represented as first appearing at the feet of Jove and his heavenly spouse. Clotho, the youngest of the Three Fates is allocated with the first decan of the sign Gemini, and is holder of the distaff. Lachesis spins or draws out the thread, while Atrophos DIVIDES it so that it may form the great nerve branch in either leg.
While the interpretation of the story is tht Atrophos cuts off the thread, much research into the etymology of the word “shear” reveals the fact that it also means “the parting fork of the human body”, hence the limbs. The nerves do not terminate at the end of the human spine but continue to the end of the extremities, after BRANCHING OFF. It is also true that LIFE CEASES when NERVE ACTION ENDS. An archaic interpretation of “shear” is to make an incision or cleft.
It is also true that fate or destiny of each individual depends on the extent and degree to which the spirit in man is able to control, direct and manifest the threads of life through the cerebro- spinal nervous system. The electricity of life truly flows through them.
The three fates were termed the Parcae by the Romans, while the Greeks called them Maerae, meaning to divide or to apportion. Other interpretations are a tree-shoot, a cutting, or a “lot” of anything. From this no doubt came the notion of casting lots, or drawing lots for one’s fate or destiny. There is then, from every evidence of it’s synthetic analysis, that the branching off of the nerves from the base of the brain, the formation of the air passages and growth of blood vessels and arteries to form the torso and extremities must be studied under Gemini.
In the astronomical story of Gemini we find that in the feet of the Twins, a brilliant white star named Almeisan or Al Maisan is described by Al Biruni as “winding” around each other, as though the stars of this station were winding around each other, or curving from the central star. In Babylonia this star marked the tenth ecliptic constellation, Mash-mashu-sha-Risu, “the Twins of the Shepherd” and may have been the Babylonian lunar mansion called Khigalla, the Canal”.
There is every evidence to suggest that the Canal represented by the stars in the constellation of Gemini refers to the spinal canal in the human body. In the human body and blood, fibrin is distinguished from albumin and casein by its separation, in a solid state, into delicate “filaments” in any fluid in which it is dissolved, shortly after the fluid is taken from the organism.
It is clearly shown by bio-chemists that WITHOUT THE INORGANIC SALT POTASSIUM CHLORIDE, NO FIBRIN CAN BE MADE, and it is further shown that the normal amount of fibrin can not be held in proper solution in the blood without proper balance of that cell salt. Fibrin results from the union of certain fibrin-plastic substances (albuminoids), but this union does not take place in the absence of the Chloride of Potash molecules.
In venous blood the fibrin amounts to three in 1000 parts. Arterial blood contains less, and lymph a still smaller amount. In inflammatory exudations we find Fibrin in the serous cavities-such as pleura and peritoneum, and on the mucous membrane, as in croup, diphtheria, catarrh, etc. In all inflammatory conditions, Ferrum Phos (the Pisces salt) should be given with Kali Mur, for iron particles carry oxygen which becomes deficient when the proper balance is disturbed by the outflow of fibrin.
It is quite clear that fibrin is produced by the action of the chloride of potash, with the assistance of oxygen, on certain albuminoids.
The definition of Fibrin is “A whitish proteid from the blood and the serous fluids of the body. It is seen in elastic fibrillar masses.” It is not recongnized as fibrin in the blood but as coagulum from which fibers or filaments, threads are spun. The definition of fiber is “an elongated, thread like structure of organic tissue”.
Potassium Chloride is the mineral Sylvite, termed in Latin, “sal digestivus” or the digestive salt. The word “digest” in Latin is derived from “dis” meaning apart, and “gerere” meaning to carry. It thus means “to carry apart in different directions.” Thus Kali Mur is assigned to Gemini, the branching off sign of the zodiac, since this salt has the power to carry apart in different directions.
As we study anatomy and physiology, it is evident that with the exception of the bones, fibrin is necessary in the formation of the neres, ligaments, veins, skin, tissue, in fact ALL flesh. From a deep realization of this fact Potassium Chloride (Kali Mur) is the spinning salt, for it spins the threads from which the seamless garment of flesh is woven.
Let us refer to Mercury (mind) as the messenger of the gods (spirit) or ruling powers of Mt. Olympus (the cerebrum). Let us picture for ourselves the character of the message that Mercury held in itself from the past. From what pattern did it reconstruct the garment which serves in this incarnation? What is the texture of our Mercury? What of the garments commonly known as mind and body? Is the mind capable of boring like a gimlet into a subject, revealing hidden treasures of truth?
Is mind able to stand, towering like an impregnable fortress of strength against the blows of adversity nd sorrow which sooner or later come to test each one of us? Do we find “reason” tottering and mental confusion resulting when difficult situations arise? Are we fearful or panicky, lonely, homesick and discouraged? Are we stiff, lame and rheumatic as the years go by? Do we find some symptom more or less constantly manifesting, until finally, there is no mental or physical rest, and life becomes merely a painful existence, death at last coming as a relief?
Such then is the Mercury we brought with us into incarnation. It was INTENDED by the Great Chemist to be “argentum vivum” or “living silver”, but we were prodigal sons in our past incarnations, and in the depths to which we descended this silver became polluted. That which is so quick to attract itself became an amalgam which indeed chained us to the mire and filth of earth.
Mercury’s wings seem to have been broken. Instead of soaring into the higher realms of mind which is the result of the EXPANSION of a purified and LIVING SILVER in the spinal canal (our physiological thermometer and barometer), Mercury has instead been coagulated with lead by Saturn. Heavy instead of light are those winged feet. Mind (Mercury) functions very, very slowly and crudely (Saturn) and we drag ourselves along as though weighted down by lead, Saturn’s allocating metal.
Is it strange then, that lead coagulates mercury, and is the only metal having the power to do so?
What is the process whereby we may free our mercury from the burden of impurities it bears-BOTH the tangible, physical mercury and the intangible , abstract Mercury of mind? By exactly the same process used by the chemist-BY RAISING IT’S VIBRATIONS AND VAPORIZING IT. Remember, our Mercury ( mind) is a true creature of the Air. The heights are its home. Gemini is an air sign. Mercury originates in Aries , it was GOLD there, but in the the lower regions it became ARGENTUM VIVUM, living silver or the WATER OF LIFE.
It’s passageway, the spinal canal, is both the Rivers Euphrates and the Jordan. By this process of vaporization all incumbrances fall away. In metallurgy we are informed that wen minute pauntities of either gold or silver cannot be extracted from a mass, they are mixed with mercury, to which the precious particles are attracted. It PICKS UP just as the mind does, either that which is valuable or valueless. The mercury is separated and vaporized, and the gold or silver is released.
Thus we find the reason why Mercury is a symbol of mind, free at last of all that would prevent its soaring into those realms where only pure Spirit is at home. When the brain is at last completely purified and perfected, which means that it is formed of the ULTIMATE CHEMICAL ATOMS, this will be possible. Why do we delay this Divine Messenger on his journey back to Olympus?
Obviously because we have not known the road or the direction in which it lies. Perhaps until recently we had not wished to journey, or dreamed ever so vaguely, of the golden glory and the peace beyond words to be found at the journey’s end.
And so once more, let us take up the THREADS of Gemini and review, again, the ancient story of the Caduceus of Mercury. Although it is used as the symbol of healing by the American and British Medical corps, how many physicians among them know of its immemorial metaphysical and physiological tradition? About as many as those having knowledge of the real interpretation of Freemasonry, of Astrology or Christianity.
Mercury, as has been explained, means mind, also that through which mind expresses in the physical body, namely the CEREBRO-SPINAL SYSTEM OR SEMI FLUIDIC MATERIAL WHICH CONSTITUTES “SOUL”. SPIRIT MUST HAVE A MEDIUM THROUGH WHICH TO IMPRESS THE DENSE PHYSICAL ATOMS. It is our psyche, the tender mother substance which can be more easily manipulated.
SPIRIT IS NOT SOUL, NEITHER IS SOUL SPIRIT, but how often we find these terms used interchangeably. They shou ld not be. The scriptures state that BODY, SOUL and SPIRIT EXIST, BODY and SOUL being detachable from Spirit and subject to dissolution.
Mercury’s symbol, poised on winged feet on the lips of Gaia or Mother Earth, the right arm lifted and forefinger pointed directly overhead, is crowed with a winged hat. In the left hand and grasped by a handle extending from the middle pole or wand is the Caduceus, resting against the forearm and in the hollow made by the elbow. A very short distance from the Caduceus wand are the two wings. Twined around the pole with their bodies meeting and CROSSING AT FOUR POINTS are TWO SERPENTS, their heads turned inward.
Study carefully the position in which the Caduceus is held. Ordinarily the natural way of holding a thing is outward or forward a little way away from the body. In Mercury’s symbol, the arm is FORCED BACKWARD AND AWAY FROM THE BODY, instead, an unnatural and awkward position.
This was planned as means of attracting one’s attention to its relation to the BACK of Mercury, for THE CADUCEUS WAND IS THE HUMAN SPINE, and we find this fact expressed in Hindu literature as the STICK OF BRAHM. Brahmarhandra (Spirit or the Bee) enters the body through the door of Brahm (suture in the skull) and leans on his stick. The backbone is the SUPPORT of the body, and there is much more to this statement than appears on the surface, for does not “lack of character” mean “spineless” or a “weak backbone”?
In terms of Freemasonry it certainly does, in spite of the French pronunciation of the Pass-word. In Hebraic literature the back bone is the ROD OF MOSES. Thus we learn that the same story, the fall and rise of man, is universal among all nations and all people.
The meaning of SPINE is THORN, and that is exactly what it looks like, the skull forming it’s head and the coccyx forming it’s thorn or point. As flesh is torn and bruised on contacting a thorn, SO DOES THE POINT OF OUR OWN INDIVIDUAL THORN IN THE FLESH BLEED US OF THE WATER OF LIFE AND TORTURE US TO MADNESS. (see Pisces). The spinal canal is humanity’s Euphrates and it’s Jordan.
The wings on the hat of Mercury REPRESENT THE TWO HEMISPHERES OF THE BRAIN, our “thinking cap”. The TWO SERPENTS ARE SYMBOLIC OF THE RIGHT AND LEFT SYMPATHETIC SYSTEMS and correspond to the two thieves allegory in the Bible. For when life is lived negatively, they “steal” from us.
The winged pole of Mercury IS THE TREE OF LIFE, WHILE THE SERPENTS REPRESENT THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL. ONE IS THE SENSORY SYSTEM, THE OTHER THE MOTOR SYSTEM. The latter planned to work in harmony with the sensory system, DOING WORK PERTAINING TO MOTION. Perverted, it becomes E-MOTION meaning ENERGY WASTED, SUBSTANCE LOST.
All around us today we see it’s effect, humanity as a whole floundering in chaos, a sea of EMOTION (energy wasted, substance lost). Why was the symbol of the Lion allocated with Leo, away back in the morning of time? Why is it the ONLY BEAST OF PREY symbol in the entire circle of the Zodiac? Because it has to do with the process of SELF-CONTROL. The taming of the beast in man, the EMOTIONS WHICH TEAR US TO PIECES AND CONSUME US.
The heads of the two thieves and the heads of the sperents CROSS or are CRUCIFIED AT THE BASE OF THE BRAIN AT THE CEREBELLUM (Taurus). Lest there be any to whom the foregoing explanation is not yet clear, let it be further stated that under the winged hat of Mercury is the nectar and embrosia of the gods- THAT WHICH NOURISHES. IT IS THE ELECTRICITY OF LIFE WHICH RUNS THE BODY, AND WITH WHICH WE THINK. IT FORMS THE PROTOPLASMIC BASIS OF ALL THE FLUIDS OF THE BODY INCLUDING THE PRO-CREATIVE (semen and egg).
No wonder then, Mercury was said to be a patron of merchants and thieves, the merchants devoid of perversion to deal legitimately with goods, and the thieves taking by stealth, WITHOUT REIMBURSING. Here we note the distinction between the positive and negative mind, one functioning constructively, the other functioning destructively. As the positive mind, Mercury expands under the rapid vibrations (heat) of Spirit, as the negative he is cold, congealed, stagnant.
In the study of Schuessler’s Biochemic System, we note how the symptoms arising from deficient Kali Mur cell salt check with the last statement of the foregoing paragraph, for the SPINNING process stops, the threads thicken, tangle, and the parts feel enlarged, congested, swollen. The thread fiber takes up too much room. This is the true explanation for swellings, glandular enlargements, etc, etc.
Thick blood or embolus results from need of this Kali Mur salt, causing the heart to work harder, as more energy is required to circulate the blood. Biochemistry states that Kali Mur is a specific for Children’s Diseases, for they have to do with disturbances in the fibrin, and are usually accompanied by exudations through the skin, as in scarlet fever, measles, chicken pox, or in swollen glands, and throat irritation such as diphtheria, tonsillitis, mumps, etc. And to the degree in which iron or Ferrum Phos (Pisces salt) is deficient, fever will manifest.
I
nflammatory rheumatism has to do with the fibers or threads of flesh deficient in this Gemini salt, and is augmented by the need for more oxygen due to iron deficiency. The brain becomes congested because the blood is thick and circulation slow, causing it to feel dull and heavy. One is unable to think clearly. The “thread” of thought is broken.
It must be repeated that THE BASIS FOR ALL FIBER IS KALI MUR, but as there are many different uses for it, the fibers are differentiated by the addition of other minerals or inorganic salts. WHEN THESE SALTS ARE PUT TOGETHER-COMBINED WITH THE PROTOPLASM FORMED BY THE CEREBRUM, THEY BECOME ORGANIC..which merely means “put together, as bricks with mortar”.
Joseph of the Bible story is the Mecury of Astrology. Is not his coat of many colors symbolic of the countless shades and hues of THOUGHT? The mental as well as the physical garment is SEAMLESS. Religion, so absolutely and entirely perverted down the ages, begins now to blossom forth as a new and wondrous story, and we realize at last that EACH INDIVIDUAL HAS HIS OWN TREE OF LIFE, HIS OWN GARDEN OF EDEN. NO ONE BUT HIMSELF CAN DESTROY THAT TREE. NO ONE BUT HIMSELF CAN CULTIVATE IT OR SUPPLY IT WITH NUTRIMENT, SO THAT IN TIME IT MAY BEAR TWELVE KINDS OF PERFECT FRUIT (THE 12 DIVISIONS OF THE HUMAN BODY).
This process means THE OVERCOMING OF DEATH. Barring accidents, no one dies except from dis-ease, and even the former will be done away with as the cerebral centers having to do with intuition are perfected, for one will then be forewarned.
It is very interesting to note that both Castor and Pollux have dual and seemingly contradictory interpretations. For while it is a fact that Castor is derived from “castus”, meaning “pure”, while Pollux means to taint or pollute, yet at the same time we analyze the Latin derivation, “polluere” meaning “to wash forth”, we divide the word into POLL and LUX. Here we have the basis of another interpretation. Poll is the middle English word for the TOP OF THE HEAD, WHICH PHYSIOLOGICALLY IS THE SOURCE OF LIGHT OR UNDERSTANDING, while LUX means LIGHT.
We have here in Pollux the source for the compound word HEAD-LIGHT. IT IS THE LIGHT OF THE HIGHER UNDERSTANDING WHICH ALLOWS US TO BECOME PURIFIED.
The word “Cast” means to throw violently, to cast off, to shed, etc. It also means to expurge. This conglomeration of dual meanings for both Castor and Pollux substantiates the statement that each alternately goes to a higher vibration (living in heaven one day) and to a lower vibration (living in the earth / dirt the next day).
When the information embodied in the Zodiac sign of Gemini is acquired, humanity will strive more and more to live positively, creatively and no longer destructively, thus dividing it’s merchandise, the bread which comes down from heaven daily TOO FEED it. Mercury, the great physician, will at last fulfill his divine mission, which is TO HEAL ALL DISEASES.
Do not become confused by the statement and say “yes, I know that mind can heal.” And forget the fact that on the mater-ial plane of expression the cerebro-spinal system is Mercury also. One cannot get along without the other. BOTH REQUIRE SUSTENANCE-food corresponding to their own individual needs.
Faith without works is dead, and in all work MATERIAL is required. We can never separate ourselves from this fact, for it is purely scientific. It is the basis for the following statement taken from Matthew 9:12 “THEY THAT BE WHOLE NEED NOT A PHYSICIAN. PHYSICIAN, HEAL THYSELF.”

CANCER: THE CHEMISTRY OF THE CRAB: JUNE 21 – JULY 22

cancer

The analysis and synthesis of CANCER and it’s mineral cell salt: CALCIUM FLUORIDE

In Zodiac Bio-Chemistry, Cancer and Calcium fluoride are the mineral cell salts for the breast, stomach, spleen and bodily elastic tissue.

It is a biochemical fact that Calcium Fluoride possesses a vibration or rate of motion capable of building up cuboidal formations. We find that the arachnoid or brain webs consist of bundles of white, fibrous and elastic tissue, their outer surface (crab shell) covered with cuboidal mesothelium. It is therefor true that Calcium Fluoride is of the nature of cement but having the peculiar property of elasticity.

Biochemistry teaches us that the enamel of teeth and the finger nails require this salt, and some is also utilized by the bones. When calcium fluoride is deficient, the skin is rough, chapping or cracking, fissures tend to form in certain parts as between the toes, around the fingers, anus, back of the ears or in corners of the mouth. The skin has become deficient in this rubbery tissue material, the elastic substance.

Hard growths, tumors of a fibroid character, blurred vision, cataracts, osseous lumps or growth on the jaw or cheekbones, loose teeth, receding gums, thin and brittle enamel, tongue has a cracked appearance, elongation of the uvula, hemorrhoids, apparently increased quantity of urine, hardening of the testicles, dragging pains in the groin, prolapsed uterus, varicose veins, digestive disturbances, spleen trouble, valvular heart trouble, forgetfulness and fear of poverty are some of the outstanding indications of need of this salt.

Cancer is the mother sign of the zodiac. The mother’s BREAST IS THE SOUL’S FIRST HOME after taking on flesh and “RENDING THE VEIL OF ISIS”.

The tenacity of those born between June 21 and July 22, in holding on to a home or dwelling place is well illustrated by the crab’s grip, and also by the fact that it carries its house along wherever it goes in order that it may be sure of a dwelling.

The angles (angels) of the twelve Zodiac signs MATERIALIZE THE VITALITIES IN THE HUMAN MICROCOSM (body, as above, so below). THROUGH THE OPERATION OF CHEMISTRY, ENERGY CREATING, THE INTELLIGENT MOLECULES OF THE DIVINE SUBSTANCE MAKE THE “WORD FLESH”.

The corner stone in the chemistry of Cancer the crab is the in-organic salt FLUORIDE OF LIME, known in pharmacy as CALCAREA FLOURICA or CALCIUM FLUORIDE. It is a combination of fluorine and lime.

WHEN THIS CELL SALT IS DEFICIENT IN THE HUMAN BLOOD, PHYSICAL AND MENTAL DISEASE (not-at-ease) IS THE RESULT. Elastic fiber is formed by the union of the fluoride of lime with albuminoids, whether in the rubber tree or the human body. All relaxed conditions of tissue (varicose veins and kindred ailments) are due to a lack of sufficient amount of elastic fiber to “rubber” the tissue and hold it in place.

When elastic fiber is deficient in tissue of membrane between the upper and lower brain poles-CEREBRUM and CEREBELLUM, the result is a “sagging apart” of the positive and negative poles of the dynamo that runs the machinery of man. AN UNFAILING SIGN OF THIS MINERAL SALT DEFICIENCY IS A GROUNDLESS FEAR OF FINANCIAL RUIN.

While those born in any of the 12 signs of the Zodiac may sometimes be deficient in Calcium Fluoride, due to Mars or Mercury or both in Cancer at birth, Cancer born people are more liable to symptoms indicating a lack of this elastic fiber-builder than are those born in other Zodiac signs.

Why should we learn Latin or Greek lexicons to find a name for the result of a deficiency in some of the mineral constituents of blood? If we find a briar in our flesh, we say so in the plainest speech; we do not say “I have the briatitis or splintraligia”.

When we know that a deficiency in the cell-salts of the blood causes the symptoms that medical ignorance has dignified and personified with names that nobody knows the meaning of, we will know how to heal scientifically by the unalterable law of the chemistry of life. When we learn the CAUSE of the disease, then, and not before, will we prevent disease.

Not through quarantine, nor disinfectants, nor “Boards of Health” will man reach the long sought plane of health, not through affirmations of health, nor denials of disease will bodily regeneration be wrought, not by dieting or fasting or “Fletcherizing” or suggesting, will the elixir of life and the Philosopher’s Stone be found.

The “mercury of the sages” and the “hidden Manna” are not constituents of health foods. Victims of salt baths and massage are bald before their time, and the alcohol, steam and Turkish bath fiends die young.

“Sic transit Gloria mundi”. When a man’s body is made chemically perfect, the operations of mind will perfectly express.

Gems belonging to the sign of the breast are black onyx and emerald, astral colors are green and russet-brown. IN BIBLICAL CHEMISTRY, CANCER IS REPRESENTED BY ZEBULUM, THE TENTH SON OF JACOB, AND MEANS DWELLING PLACE OR HABITATION. MATHEW IS CANCER’S DESCIPLE.

Physiologically, Cancer and Calcium Fluoride pertain to the breast, stomach, spleen and elastic tissues and govern expansion and contraction, elasticity and tenacity. It is the most fertile of the 12 zodiac signs and ruled by the Moon, whose expansive and contractive features are expressed as waxing and waning.

AS THE MOON IS MISTRESS OF NIGHT, SO IS NATURE’S MOST OCCULT WORK, THAT OF THE FORMATION AND FERTILZATION OF SEED IS CARRIED ON UNDER COVER OF DARKNESS AND WITH THE UTMOST SECRECY.

Cancer pertains to fluids and is said by students of astrology to be one of the signs of the water triplicity. The fluids of Cancer are the mother’s milk (breast), the chyle (digested food elements in the stomach) and THE WHITE CORPUSCLES MANUFACTURED IN THE SPLEEN. All have to do with nutrition. Therefor none of them “represent” water, although they contain more or less of it.

The mother’s milk nourishes the child, CHYLE FURNISHES FOOD FOR THE BLOOD CORPUSCLES TO WHICH THE SPLEEN GIVES FACTS ABOUT THE GLANDS. THIS IS THE REAL FUNCTION OF THE SPLEEN.

THE REAL STORY THAT ASTROLOGY TELLS IS THE STORY THAT CONCERNS THE UNDERSTANDING, PURIFICATION, MASTERY AND PERFECTION OF THE HUMAN BODY AND NOTHING ELSE!

Madam Blavatsky wrote “The sons of God” became the “fallen angels” (angels) after perceiving that the daughters of men were fair”.

It is essential to understand that AIRIES (THE CEREBRUM), THE MOST HIGH, THE HOUSE OF GAD or GOD IS THE HOUSE OF SPIRITUAL SEED “ESSE” (essence). It will dawn on you that the “Seed Esse” is the substance of the sons of god, it’s creation, it’s progeny.

THAT WHICH CANCER MANIFESTS IS OF THE MOTHER NATURE, THE FLUIDIC, WHICH IS TRULY THE DAUGHTER OF EARTH, AS WELL AS MOTHER.

Returning to the mystery we are considering, OF WHAT DO THESE SOULS WHICH DESCEND CONSIST? Remember our fruitful Taurus, the earth full of seeds, made alive and fed by the manna or bread from “heaven”, or Airies (the Cerebrum in the brain).

THESE ARE THE SOULS, IN VERY TRUTH THE NUCLEI WITH WHICH THE HEAVENLY CRAB CANCER (CORPUSCLES IN THE SPLEEN) IS DAILY, HOURLY, MINUTE BY MINUTE FED.

It is well to point out that when considering the chemical side of Cancer, that THE DEFICIENCY IN CALCIUM FLUORIDE CAUSES ONE TO BE FORGETFUL. THE THREADS OR FILAMENTS OF THOUGHT ARE NOT ELASTIC. Kali Mur builds or fashions these threads, BUT CALCIUM FLUORIDE MUST BE BLENDED WITH AND INTO THEM TO MAKE THEM ELASTIC AND CAPABLE OF EXPANDING AND CONTRACTING.

This is a true chemical statement and physiologically correct as well. Get out your Grays Anatomy and read about the WEBS in your brain, scientifically termed the Arachnoid (spider) membrane interposed between the pia mater and the dura mater of the brain and cord.

It is well known that the brain disease known as Lunacy becomes intensified during certain periods of the moon, and as Luna is the ancient name for the moon, we know now why this disease is termed Luna-cy. The brain fluid or ocean of the great Mother is disturbed, the spider like membranes of the brain are starved of Cancer, Calcium Fluoride, governed by the moon.

It is well to state at this point that the modern writers on the Kabbala have confused and perverted it. SINCE THE MIND FUNCTIONS THROUGH THE BRAIN, IT IS OBVIOUS THAT THE PHYSIOLOGICAL “KEY” IS THE FIRST AND MOST IMPORTANT.

THE SIX ARE AUTOMATICALLY PERFECTED WHEN THE PHYSIOLOGICAL WORK IS ACCOMPLISHED AND NOT OTHERWISE. THE STUDY OF PHYSIOLOGY AND CHEMISTRY WILL ALONE ENABLE US TO LIVE METAPHYSICALLY.

In Sepher Yetzirah or The Book of Creation, we find this statement relative to the numer 10: “Ten are the numbers of the ineffable Sephrioth, ten and not nine, ten and not eleven”. “Learn the wisdom and be wise in the understanding of it. Investigate these numbers and draw knowledge from them, fix the design in it’s purity, and pass from it to its creator seated on the throne” (Aires, the Cerebrum in the brain).

A study of the 10th Tarot card reveals that it has to do with the force potential in it’s manifestation, the union of male and female in nature. Astronomically it corresponds with the Zodiac sign VIRGO, in that it is the universal Cosmic Mother, for remember there is no lust connected with the coming together of the two yods, the male and female germs IN EACH INDIVIDUAL BODY, for such has WHOLLY TO DO WITH THE BIRTH OF CORPUSCLES IN THE SPLEEN!

In plainer words: THE CELLS OF THE BODY CAN NOT BE REPRODUCED UNLESS THIS TAKES PLACE. Virgin means “pure” or “unadulterated”, hence NO DEFICIENCY IN THE NATURAL OR ORIGINAL MATERIAL OF THE BODY.

THEREFORE THE GREAT SECRET HIDDEN IN THE SIGN CANCER IS THAT OF NATURE’S POWER TO REPRODUCE CELLS, OTHERWISE THE BODY WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO RECREATE ITSELF DAILY!

Again, it must be repeated that this has to do NOT WITH PROCREATIVE GERMS (ovum and sperm), BUT WITH THE CEASELESS FORMATION OF CORPUSCLES WITHIN THE SPLEEN!

Cancer is the Zodiac sign related to the physiological functions having to do with the implanting of the nucleus or SPIRITUAL SEED WITHIN THE FORMATION OF EACH CORPUSCLE OF THE BODY. “EROS” OR HEAVENLY SPRITE, THE SPARK OR FLAME OF LIFE THROWN OFF FROM THE FORGE OF VULCAN-IN OTHER WORDS DESCENDING FROM IT’S ABODE IN HIGHER REALMS OF AIRES, THE BRAIN CEREBRUM, IS CARRIED INTO THE MIDDLE DECAN OF CANCER, THE SPLEEN, DEEP WITHIN IT’S CENTER.

Here, like the Crab, it “reaches out” from all sides of itself and seizes upon all sorts of materials which may be said to represent every degree and rate of vibration associated with the circumference of its reach, for it is able to take from all directions.

EVERY KIND OF BUILDING MATERIAL IS REQUIRED TO FORM A SEED, FOR IN ITESELF IS A CONCENSUS OF ALL THAT EXISTS.

CANCER THE CRAB SEIZES THE NUCLEI OR ELECTRIC SEED, SPIRITS ENGENDERED IN AIRIES THE CEREBRUM, AND FORMS CORPUSCLES WHICH ARE MINIATURE CRABS. Again, it is by means of the corpuscles that the human body is kept alive, and daily regenerated.

AS THE NUCLEUS OF THE CORPUSCLE IS “HIGH BORN”, HAVING BEEN CREATED IN AIRIES THE CEREBRUM, THE “BODY BUILT AROUND IT”, AS THE CORPUSCLES ARE PERFECTED IN THE SPLEEN CAN WELL BE TERMED AN ENCLOSURE (Crab shell).

Calcium Fluoride is necessary in fusing together all kinds of material to make CORPUSCLES or SEEDS, YET IT HAS ANOTHER FUNCTION OF IMPORTANCE. IT DECOMPOSES THE WATER IN THE ATMOSPHERE AND THUS FURNISHES THE SPIRITUAL GERM ENCLOSED WITHIN THE CORPUSCLE WITH THE OZONIZED OXYGEN OR ELECTRIFIED AIR WHICH IS ITS PARTICULAR ENERGIZER.

Since the life of the corpuscle is the electrical germ-cell within it, IT MUST BE FED BY THAT WHICH CONTAINS ELECTRICAL ENERGY.

Through Astrology we may become cognizant of the relationship existing between the Macrocosm or BODY of the Universe and the body of MAN. In this way we discover HOW and WHERE or in what part of man Nature’s FORCES are constantly reacting.

We begin to realize, then, THAT WHEN POWERFUL PLANETARY ELECTROMAGNETIC FORCES IMPINGE UPON THAT PART OF THE ANATOMY OF THE GRAND MAN KNOWN AS CANCER, CALCIUM FLUORIDE IS TREMENDOUSLY ACTIVE, AND IF IN THAT PART OF THE BODY OF MAN ITS ESSENTIAL CELL SALT, CALCIUM FLUORIDE, IS NOT PRESENT IN SUFFICIENT QUANTITY TO SET UP THE SAME RATE OF VIBRATION WHICH IS THE PERFECT HEALTH RATIO, THE DIS-EASE (disease) MANIFESTS!!

ONE IS NOT THEN WORKING WITH NATURE, BUT WORKING AGAINST HER.
