As we move on our spiritual journey during these degenerate times, it takes a keen eye to decipher the most suitable way to live our lives. Ideally, it is something that leads to a peaceful mind, a proper self-esteem and a genuine happiness. Yet, it seems the more information we gather about good health, the farther we move from it. More often than not, the right knowledge is lacking which continues to make us codependent.
An interesting fact worth noting from the DrPasswater website:
“Let me give you a very interesting statistic. In 1985, The New England Journal of Medicine published an article titled “Paleolithic Nutrition”. The authors, who had credentials as anthropologists specializing in the Paleolithic era, determined that, on average, our caveman forebears got around 11,000 mg of potassium daily and about 700 mg of sodium.” — Dr. Richard Moore
As we understand how our diet falls very short of the above ideal, this can be very discouraging especially after we calculate the daily intake of our potassium and sodium. We know that the modern diet is filled with terrible processed foods, but many of us don’t realize how detrimental sodium can be. Since birth, we have developed this bad habit, through no fault of our own. And once this habitual tendency progresses into our teenage years it is often very rare for any of us to grab any fruits or vegetables to get the proper nutrients in our system. I’ve noticed the destructive nature of our plight works in two distinct ways:
First, the lack of natural minerals in our diet becomes problematic for our skeletal, endocrine and nervous systems. Second, the addition of synthetic additives (such as MSG aka Natural Flavors) and other toxins leads to gain weight and feeling sluggish or lethargic. It’s no wonder the average person would totally give up on the task of losing weight and experiencing their natural health with is everyone’s birth right.
We could complain all day and night but that will really not change our condition. So, whether we think this is a terrible thing that society has done to us is not the point. We must rise about that. A better way to look at it is this: Now we have an opportunity to gain more knowledge (of a correct and incorrect diet) and do something about it. We are put on this earth, just at this time so that we can learn and perfect ourselves. And we have a choice. We can either spiral out of control and just live our lives with these terrible addictions & cravings or learn from our parents mistakes and help our children who are the next generation to live better.
In relation to food, these addictions come in two categories. These are: salt-cravings and chocolate-addiction. When we are young, it doesn’t really matter much to us. We enjoy life in the moment. However, as we get older we begin to see the detrimental side-effects of these devious and mindless bad habits. No matter how delicious these foods are and no matter how necessary our mind tells us these little pleasures give us; there is a consequence to disregarding the laws of nature.
With weight-gain and depression more pronounced these days, wouldn’t it be nice to know the root cause of our problems and have an easy solution?
We have to begin somewhere. On the physical level alone, there is a path to follow and a way to attack the problem. Rather than sleeping for hours during the day time and hiding under the covers try gaining this knowledge. Rather than getting your stomach stapled try this protocol. Rather than getting liposuction try getting to the root cause for achieving essential health.
When studying the dharma in a serious way, we may be blessed to find some old and rare scriptural text. These holy texts, translated into new and pristine books may come into our hand by the blessings of those accomplished masters that have compassion for all sentient beings in this world that are lost and suffering. We are then afforded an opportunity to be graced with certain knowledge that past masters whose spiritual discipline sheds light on our difficult situation. The one simple and powerful truth, when really seen, is quite wonderful to behold. Usually it’s something so simple that many will pass it up without discerning what benefits are within the tiny seed hidden within one line of text.
It has been passed down through the ages that there are special foods that a yogin eats while practicing austerities on the spiritual path. To those that wish to benefit everyone equally, our bodies need nourishment to sustain ourselves till the end of the quest. So, it would make sense to explain a little about which foods have the best nutrients. I suspect, the key to health has already been categorized by the Indian or Tibetan sages as three sweets. And MH has discussed this (on his Forum) to some extent and from his own perspective outside the traditional path laid down by the great Mahasiddhas.
The three sweets are classified as: honey, molasses and sugar. These three forms of food, when researched properly, in a scientific or esoteric way… show that the properties inherent inside are quite abundant with a complete range of minerals that the body does extremely well with in rebuilding the body to function effectively. Here is a clear indication, from our Master Herbalist, the types of minerals he believes are the best nature has to offer us:
“Maple Syrup is the best, Sorghum is next, unless you could find cane sugar turned to black strap with out making it taste nasty. Fruits are sweet sugars and maple syrup is sweet tree and sorghum is sweet molasses.” — MH
For those that follow MH over the years knows that he favors Sorghum over Black-Strap Molasses. Yet, I have concluded that Black-Strap Molasses has a distinct advantage over Sorghum; namely having more potassium and magnesium.
Black-Strap Molasses and Maple Syrup could quite well be are missing key to our basic health and survival.
For me, Black-Strap Molasses feels like it has more potency than sorghum. When we look at the science, the nutritional charts prove Black-Strap Molasses has a greater quantity of potassium and magnesium. Whatever the differences, these two minerals are the basic building blocks necessary for balancing the immense salt problem we have today while diminishing these unstoppable cravings. On a physical level, it gives us the most nutrients needed for rebuilding and repairing our worn out hair, skin, nails and bones. On an emotional level, it can help greatly with depression and the cold-disease (of a weak nervous system) that plagues a lot of us in this modern society.
Recently, I took up to self-experimenting once again. I still have no interest in fasting or altering my diet in any way. So, I kept it quite simple. I started adding a few tablespoons of Maple Syrup each day. After only two days with this regimen, there were some remarkable results that I only found while fasting and holding to a vegan diet.
While taking two or more tablespoons of Maple Syrup daily, I noticed that the craving for salt was lessened to a considerable extent. I no longer craved salt as ravenously as I would over the past several years. Having the knowledge that consuming too much salt causes weight-gain is quite a daunting thing to hear. And as my research deepened, realizing that excess salt can increase the risk of developing cancer later in life is a shocking thing to discover. Having this knowledge is good, but not having the will-power to do anything about it is disturbing. MH, the Master Herbalist, tells us:
DR. JOHN R. CHRISTOPHER WAS 100% ANTI SALT ALL HIS CAREER. TODAY IN PA ON A NEWS CHANNEL THEY HAD A SPECIAL ON HEART ATTACKS AND THEY STATED THE HEART ATTACK VICTIMS HAVE 1,500X TOO MUCH SALT AND THIS SALT IRRITATES THE ARTERIES AND THIS FORCES PLAQUE TO DEVELOP TO PROTECT AGAINST THE SALT. — MH
So, for me… after building a foundation on taking in natural-minerals solely with Maple Syrup has yielded some amazing benefits. Whenever a slight craving for some salty-food would kick in, instead of eating a whole bag of chips, I just ate a smaller portion. Having this basic support of natural-minerals made all the difference.
Having this abundantly within my body, it was easier to move away from addiction. It was a natural will-power and not something forced. I was pleased to feel more in control and not having to deny myself any sort of fun – (eating some salty snacks without total abstinence) allowed me to feel content while not having to be stoic and rigid day-by-day. MH goes on to tell us:
“DR. JOHN R. CHRISTOPHER AND MANY GREAT MEDICAL AUTHORS EXPLAINED SALT IRRITATES THE KIDNEYS AND DESTROYS THEM AND THE MORE DESTROYED THE KIDNEYS ARE, THE MORE THE VICTIM DESIRES MORE SALT….CANCER IS RELATED TO OVER SALT CONSUMPTION…SOME OF THESE DISEASED PATIENTS WILL SNEAK AWAY AND GO OUT OF CONTROL EATING SALT AS IT TAKES THEM EVER CLOSER TO CERTAIN DEATH.” — MH
Later, as I added Black-Strap Molasses to my diet it would help decrease the cravings for chocolate. Now, this protocol is unique because there is no sense of loss or deprivation. Certainly, you can eat chips or chocolate at any time because the key is getting the proper ratios to salt and potassium under your control. Over time, you will be pleased as you observe the natural will-power that develops with just a few tablespoons of Molasses and Maple Syrup on a daily basis.
From Health Impact News website:
“The ‘master mineral’ magnesium, which is involved with over 300 cellular metabolic processes, some vital for heart health. It also assists absorption of calcium into bone matter, which molasses also abundantly contains.” – Paul Fassa
Since our bodies need large quantities of magnesium to help absorb and utilize calcium, this greatly assists in the development of bone structure & strength. Comparing the nutritional charts to Maple Syrup, Black-Strap Molasses has a much higher quantity of magnesium. MH goes on to explain:
“I HAVE SEEN AMISH THAT MAKE MOLASSES PROVE THIS AS FACT. They have NEVER EVER brushed their teeth for 3 generations and their teeth are perfectly white, fully developed jaws that keep their molars for life.” — MH
Our Master Herbalist tells us that his greatest dental book ever written was in a Molasses book. The book claimed that if you raise your child on Molasses every day of their life, they would not have tooth decay. MH says, “The book claims 1 tablespoon per day per child for LIFE!” Furthermore, looking at the root cause of things, the most important point is the relation to the mother and child.
What if the mother took molasses every day while she was pregnant?
“The author of a molasses book states that if the mother consumes molasses, her child will be fully developed, it states if the child consumes molasses daily, it will never have a tooth decay.”– MH
We can infer, and I totally believe it to be correct, that the baby would naturally benefit in such a deep way.
“I know of a community of Amish that make and raise their children/family on daily SORGHUM and I have seen their teeth and they are all SNOW WHITE. They tell me they have not used tooth brushes for 3 generations, they don’t need to!” — MH
MH further elaborates, “These poor Amish are barefoot, walk in goose /chicken poop everyday, they do not bathe….they do not wash diapers, they shake them out, hang them up and reuse them…in simple words, they are the dirtiest Amish you can find…..YET, their teeth are PERFECT!”
Signs of Health:
So when working on yourself, you just need to pay attention to the proper signs inside and outside of your body. If you were to embark on a similar journey then by all means take the necessary precautions and responsibility while gathering all the knowledge you can. We know that MH doesn’t value vitamins as they are a synthetic product. And if we were to already be doing other herbs, you would have no scientific-control or criteria to determine what is creating the effects in your body.
Therefore, STOP taking all extraneous herbal products and vitamins. Just try one or two tablespoons of Maple Syrup each morning and night. See what happens and how you feel. Try that for a week. See how that affects your skin, your hair, and teeth.
Then try taking one or two tablespoons of Molasses daily. Go slow…perhaps your body might only be able to take a teaspoon or half a teaspoon. Only you know best. After doing this, you may experience some or all of the following results:
- Hair becoming less dry and more rich, losing grey hairs, hair growth
- Nails becoming more clear and rosy
- teeth stronger, whiter, gums healing
- skin clearing up, wrinkles shrinking and scars begin to dissolve
- Not feeling so cold, body temperature normalizing
- Feeling like one can stand strong as an adult, spinal health, structure stronger
- Addiction to salt becoming less and less
- Cravings for chocolate diminishing
And if you are new to all this natural-healing lifestyle, it is quite possible to see absolutely no results at all. Therefore, if that is where you are at, and you are interested in having better health, then you would follow the other protocols such as: a liver flush, a parasite cleanse, and later complete a 7, 14, or 21-day OJ fast. This blog has tons of articles to explain MH’s theories much easier to understand. Just type in a search word in the upper right hand corner of this blog.
And remember, the protocols for doing these cleanses will help you successfully navigate life’s hardships and one day experience your perfected natural-state of being.
Let me know how it works for you. Post a comment.
Light & love,
