Good morning, and welcome back to Ridin Out the Recession. We hope everyone is doing fine and life is good for all!
Deb and I have a good, good friend who is a large commercial property owner. We met through our business and became fast friends. He calls me “the big brother,” and I refer to him as my “little brother.”
He came to the States from India in 1959, became a U.S. citizen, and honestly, I don’t believe I know a nicer individual.
He’s a retired nuclear engineer, and once retired he began developing malls and strip centers. He’s the most common, down to earth man I’ve ever met and always is willing to give someone a hand if need be. He IS…one great guy!
He believes in holistic healing, uses natural cures and remedies, and doesn’t even take an aspirin. He’s a vegetarian as well. He’s healthy as a horse and from this standpoint alone, Deb and I listen closely when conversing with him in regards to health purposes.
With this being said, I have something he gave to me that I’d like to share with you guys today.
I had a heart attack in June of 08…a massive heart attack. Since then I’ve been on all types of drugs for my heart condition. Seven, to be exact.
The Doctor who saved my life after being airlifted to the hospital told me that I had the same heart attack that the news correspondent, Tim Russert did. It was God’s will that allows me to be here gabbing to you guys today. I am…very fortunate.
Anyway…there’s a little history in regards to today’s story.
Our buddy, whom I’ll call “Mr. D” from here out, is always digging and researching into something. He basically doesn’t have much idle time, and he works about 16-17 hours a day. This is because…he wants too. This is his life, and he derives his enjoyment from staying busy.
He ran across this, I’m guessing about 6 months ago, and passed it along to me. I did nothing with it. The reasoning was simply I became involved with Deb in her fight, and basically have been concerned with her and her treatment, and not so much with mine.
Mr. D. asked me a few weeks back if I’d tried this out yet, and I told him no, that I’d been involved with Deb, looking, researching, trying to find anything that might help Deb out. He immediately “jumped my case,” telling me that he’d found this specifically for me and my condition, which by the way I’m fine, but he wasn’t hearing that part.
So in reality, he made me feel bad, or maybe you can even call it “shamed me” into trying this out. Well, I did.
This is a mixture of natural ingredients that the purpose of them is to open arteries and veins throughout your body. I Googled it up, and it seems that there is documentation and benefits from this, and I suggest you do the same if you might consider this in regards to yourself…
Here is a copy of the recipe for this if you’d like to try it out, or at least check into it. I started taking it day before yesterday and intend to keep right on with it.
For Heart Vein Opening:
- 1 cup lemon juice
- 1 cup ginger juice
- 1 cup garlic juice
- 1 cup apple cider vinegar
Mix all above and boil on low heat, approximately 30 minutes. What you want to do is simply boil it long enough that your 4 cups boil down enough to make 3 cups out of it. At this point, remove your pot from the heat and let cool.
Once cooled, you want to add 3 cups of natural honey, and put it in a bottle. We used an old milk jug, and I keep it in the fridge. When I’m ready to use it, I take it out, shake it up vigorously, and drink 1 tablespoon each morning. That’s it.
It claims by using this, your blockage of veins will open.
Now, am I sure of this? No, I’m not, but give me awhile and I’ll get back with you on this. So all I’m saying is simply that if you’d like to try this, it’s your decision, that’s all. But, everything that’s in this mix, in reality, is good for your system.
I’ve stopped taking my heart meds, although I stopped taking them just about the time Deb decided to use alternative treatments in regards to her cancer. One of her alternatives is in fact supposed to be good for your heart.
So as crazy as this may sound, I figure if it’s good enough for Deb in her fight, plus is supposedly good for heart problems too, then by goodness, if she puts her faith in it, I’ll do the same…so far, so good!
The more Deb and I read, the more we’re convinced that natural healing, is the route for us. This is our decision, and no one else’s, and by saying that, we’ll reiterate once more that in regards to your own health…you HAVE to do what feels right for you in your own heart. Read, research, and make up your own mind. After all…it is YOUR body! We’re only sharing what we’ve found…that’s all.
I can’t close today without telling you a little story that is pretty funny now, after the fact, BUT, I had one mad woman at me after I cooked up my first batch of this. I mean ole Deb was livid, and looking back now I can’t say that I blame her!
What happened was this…
Deb had gone up town, and I was thinking about Mr. D. being upset with me, beings I had never made a batch of this. So, I figured while Deb was uptown, I’d go ahead and mix up a batch to start taking it regularly.
We had the apple cider vinegar, the lemon juice, the honey, and Mr. D had supplied us with the bottle of ginger juice. Deb asked if we wanted to go to a health food store to see if we could find the garlic juice. I replied that no, since we’d been pickling okra, we had more than enough garlic cloves to get a cup of juice from them. I’d just use the juicer and juice a cup full out of the garlic cloves…and I did!
First off, I found out pretty dern quick…there ain’t much juice in a garlic clove. No sweat though, as it was obvious that even with the quantity of juice being very little from each clove…I would still have plenty to make 1 cup of juice…and I did.
BUT, that dern garlic smell was overbearing. I mean it was BAD! Better yet, once I got the ingredients in the pot to boil, I pulled a pretty dumb stunt, and believe you me, once Deb came through the door from town…she lit into me like a wet hornet!
What I had done was left the recipe for this upstairs, and once I got the mix boiling, I thought to myself, “Self…you might want to run up, grab the recipe, and check to make sure you have all the ingredients it called for.”
Well, while I was upstairs, the mix went to boiling over out of the pot. You ought to have seen it. That stuff was foaming up out of the pot, and when that stuff went to hittin the hot burner…it shore enough was stinking the whole place up! BAD!
I cleaned it all up, finished boiling it down, added the honey, and put it in the fridge. But the dern smell was still overpowering! So, I checked around again, and saw liquid under the cover of the stove, lifted it up, and dad-gum, there was juice everywhere.
I cleaned this up as well, but by now the smell was from one end of the house to the other, and I had one HOT woman running around the house calling me, well, pretty much any dern thing that came to her mind!
Two days later the smell is much better, but I gotta tell ya…you can still “break wind” but it is NO problem whatsoever! All you smell still…is garlic! So, once more, if you’re dealt lemons, just make lemonade!
We hope this may help you out some if you feel you’d like to try it out. Google it up, research it some, and then make up your own mind as to if you feel you’d like to give it a try!
We appreciate you guys coming back by to visit with us today, and God bless you and yours!
Be sure to keep a smile on your face, and one in your heart as Deb likes to say! I must say though, I’ve had a hard time getting her to practice what she preaches in regards to smiling here lately…I wonder if it might be the garlic?? LOL!
Dub and Deb
