Good morning! Well, my Gators won yesterday, but good night, the offense didn’t look very good for the second straight week.
Bama, Oregon, K-State, then there’s that team Urban Meyer coaches again (the EX-Gator coach), and for Judi and Brian, that Irish team looks good too. Can’t remember the name of their school though, or at least bring myself to say it anyway! LOL
Back last November we did a post talking about the heart benefits of taking garlic, ginger, apple cider vinegar, and lemon juice. After getting these four juices mixed, then adding 3 cups of pure honey.
Because of the comments that keep coming in over this post, I thought we’d discuss it once more.
The recipe is as follows…
1 cup lemon juice
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1 cup garlic juice
1 cup ginger juice
4 total cups…add the 4 juices together then boil until there are 3 cps of liquid left. Add 3 cups pure honey, and mix well. Put into a container and refrigerate. 1-2 teaspoons daily, but I take 2 tablespoons anymore.
Personally, I get ginger root, garlic cloves, and fresh lemons, then run them through my juicer extracting a cup of each individually. I purchase the apple cider vinegar and we have fresh honey here on the place.
I had received this recipe from a very good friend of mine, a Mr. Duggal, who happens to believe in alternative medicine. He’s originally from India, but has lived in the US since 1959. He’s a great guy, and a man I am very proud to call…my friend. Deb absolutely loved him.
As many of you know, I had a massive heart attack in June of 2008. It’s a dern wonder I didn’t die, as it was the very same type of heart attack that had killed Tim Russert just shortly before I suffered mine.
Actually the Doctor told me after I’d received a stent, that this was the case, and asked if I knew of Mr. Russert? I told him that yes, who didn’t? He then made the statement, “You did have the very same heart attack that killed Mr. Russert. So why do you think that you lived and he didn’t?”
I simply replied that God was not ready for me yet, and evidently I hadn’t lived out his plan, so…here I am.
He then said that this was exactly right.
You all know that Deb had opted for alternative treatment in regards to her cancer after taking one chemo treatment.
I thought to myself, you know, if she has the strength to step outside of the medical spectrum and go alternatives, then I’m going to do the very same thing in regards to my heart medicines, which by the way, I was taking seven of.
Also, I could think of no better way to show my own support for her, than using alternative treatment myself. MY concern was simply to stand beside her and give her 110% of my time, and just simply…be there for her.
My own life became a distant second, and to be honest, during this time I really didn’t care what happened to me. SHE was my life, and once more, my main reason for even attempting this “heart treatment” was…mental support for her…and since she chose this route, alternatives, then I’m doing so as well.
Kinda like, “what’s good for the goose…is good for the gander.” Really, that’s how I felt about it!
First off, I’d saw firsthand the effects of chemo on Deb, and by saying this, I’m knocking chemo by any means. She always told me that you HAVE to do what YOU feel…in your own heart…what is best for you.
She did exactly that, AND, the quality of life she had, WE had, during her struggle was absolutely tremendous! We could not have had any better quality of life than what we experienced. It was fourteen and a half months of her doing ANY and EVERYTHING she’d always done!
Secondly, we got to weighing the effects of some of these drugs on your body. We began to see, and believe that, although these drugs were probably doing some good, BUT, in the same breath, what were they doing to our bodies that…wasn’t good?
So, with that in mind, we REALLY began to wonder, “When does the bad…outweigh the good?”
Most know that Deb lost her fight with her cancer, BUT, when we discovered it, it was Stage 4 breast cancer, and had metastasized to a spot below her tracheal tube with spots on her lungs and liver, although very, very tiny, and not distinguishable AS cancer.
But, her diagnosis was terminal…it WAS going to get her, and we all know the ending.
BUT, once more, her quality of life was tremendous. I know in my heart she would not have changed ONE thing, and I have to be honest with you guys today, IF, I were diagnosed with cancer tomorrow…I’d do EXACTLY the same type treatment Deb did. NO DOUBT!
The moral behind Deb’s story in regards to this heart treatment is that HER life, and HER experience, opened our eyes in that there are other ways of doing things. YES, we’re not medical doctors, and by no means claim to be. BUT, what, and how we treat our body is literally…OUR decision. That’s all.
It is…OUR CHOICE.
So, enough of that…
Now…have I been back to my heart doctor? The answer is no, BUT, I will here soon. How many times have you guys heard that before?? I’ll probably set up an appointment before Christmas. LOL!
Honestly though, I am going soon. I’m beginning to look forward to a visit to my Doc.
I feel great health wise, I’ve lost 70 pounds, I haven’t been on any type of heart medicines, I eat much better than I used to, I still juice about 20-25 fruits and veggies daily, just as Deb and I did, and I exercise daily as well.
My reasoning for today’s post again, is comments we’ve received. Some of which, we’ll share now…
Dear Deb, thank you for sharing. Today I tried to mix up all 4 juices and boil, then the color changed to greenish blue. Is it ok? How about yours? Hope to receive your reply soon. Thanks again. —– Lily
Yes, once boiled down and mixed, the color does change to a bluish green tint.

From Deb (not my Deb)
My Mother in Law SWEARS by this concoction. Her cholesterol is lower than it has been in a long time … dropping 40+ points. I am going to start taking this as well. Her neighbor is Sri Lankan (?) and gave her this recipe.
I had heard about this some time back but was not sure how good this is.
Finally i decided to jump into the band wagon and made this mixture last night.
I will say i have to agree that we whole house stinked for over 12 hours. Pheew.
Took the first dose this morning.
Btw i had a massive attack in 2009 and had 2 full blocks and am present inserted with two stents.
As of mid this year i started to have the same old pain again and am going for my angiogram on the 30th of this month (oct). I hope that taking this mixture i will come out of this with flying colours.
Thanks for the write up and Godbless.
Then…this from KKumar just recently after his angiogram…
Just got back last night from the hospital after undergoing my angiogram. The results surprised me. All this while i was thinking that taking this mixture will help me abit, But i was wrong. It did not help me abit. IT HELPED ME ALOT. I was in for a shock when the doc told me my stents are all clear and the 60% block i had in one vein was totally cleared. Wow. Was i dreaming…. no i was not.
I would like to thank Dub and Deb for highlighting this article for all of us.
Thank you again and god bless you folks.
Btw i pray and hope you guys are all from from the superstorm Sandy. God bless you guys.

This too from Shabbir on Nov. 1.
Hi Dub & Deb:
Many thanks for sharing your recipe for vein opening.
I am also seriously into complementary & alternative medicine. You may try chelation, ECP and supplementary medicine which works wonders and is an alternative route to angio and bypass.
All the best. Health is all the wealth we have
So you see, there are testimonials out there that share good results from this mixture. You may read ALL the comments if you’ll go into our Nov. of 2011 archives and pull the post up, or just click on the story link from one of the comments themselves.
There are one or two that claim this mixture did nothing for them, and I’m sure this is the case, but, so far the good far outweighs any negative that we’ve received.
As Deb says, do what your own heart tells you to do. Personally, I find that good, sound advice.
I promise you this though, without my being around Deb and witnessing firsthand her faith in her treatment, her resolve to win her fight, her unwavering positivity throughout her ordeal, and her ability to get back off the floor when knocked down, brush her britches off, then jump right back up and fight again…I would never be in such good health today.
SHE is the sole reason for my being fit today. She is still my inspiration, and to be honest, if I was to slack off, I’d feel that I’d let HER down.
Yes, she may have lost her fight in the end, but I promise you this…the cancer KNEW…it had been in a fight. Plus, by setting such good examples for me to follow, I know, that through this all, she has saved my own life.
I can never thank her enough. While fighting a fight she probably never could have won, yet worried about me and my heart condition throughout. My God what a woman she was, and you sure picked a good one to bring back home with you!
I was truly blessed!
You guys have a great day, and God Bless you all! Be sure to keep a smile on your face, and one in your heart!
