ASPARAGUS



Asparagus

Very interesting!

When I was in the USN I was stationed in Key West, FL. I worked at the clinic at Naval Air Station on Big Coppitt Key just a few miles north of Key West. The hospital at Key West was for out patient only for retired armed forces personnel that lived in the area. If you needed to be hospitalized you were sent to Homestead AFB Florida. I had the day off and just went inside the hospital (Corpsman barracks were next to hospital). There was a retired navy man that worked in the lab and he was very interesting gentleman to talk with. He was a retired biochemist from the USN. He asked me what was going on that day and I said I had the day off. I wish I was working as the crew on today was taking a sailor to Homestead as he had a very bad kidney infection.

Now this elderly gent told me the man should have eaten more asparagus and he wouldn't have that problem. I asked why? I'll never forget him saying do you eat asparagus and I said yes, I love them.

He replied you notice how your urine stinks after eating asparagus? I said well I never thought it was what I ate but yes it does have a pungent odor. It is because it is detoxifying your body of harmful chemicals!!!

This was back in 1986 when I was stationed there and to read this email again I had to share this story...Eat more asparagus my friends.

Asparagus -- Who knew?

My Mom had been taking the full-stalk canned style asparagus, pureed it and took 4 tablespoons in the morning and 4 tablespoons later in the day. She did this for over a month. She is on chemo pills for Stage 3 lung cancer in the pleural area and her cancer cell count went from 386 down to 125 as of this past week.

Her oncologist said she will not need to see him for 3 months.

THE ARTICLE:

Several years ago I met a man seeking asparagus for a friend who had cancer. He gave me a copy of an article, entitled "Asparagus For Cancer" printed in the Cancer News Journal, December 1979. I will share it here, just as it was shared with me: I am a biochemist, and have specialized in the relation of diet to health or over 50 years.
Several years ago, I learned of the discovery of Richard R. Vensal, D.D.S. That asparagus might cure cancer. Since then, I have worked with him on his project. We have accumulated a number of favorable case histories.
Here are a few examples:

Case No. 1,  A man with an almost hopeless case of Hodgkin's disease (cancer of the lymph glands) who was completely incapacitated. Within 1 year of starting the asparagus therapy, his doctors were unable to detect any signs of cancer, and he was back on a schedule of strenuous exercise.

Case No. 2,  A successful businessman, 68 years old, suffered from cancer of the bladder for 16 years. After years of medical treatments, including radiation without improvement, he began taking asparagus. Within 3 months, examinations revealed that his bladder tumor had disappeared and that his kidneys were normal.

Case No. 3,  On March 5th 1971, a man who had lung cancer was put on the operating table where they found lung cancer so widely spread that it was inoperable. The surgeon sewed him up and declared his case hopeless. 
On April 5th he heard about the Asparagus therapy and immediately started taking it. By August,
X-ray pictures revealed that all signs of the cancer had disappeared. He has now returned to his regular business routine
Case No. 4,  A woman had been troubled for a number of years with skin cancer. She developed different skin cancers which were diagnosed by the acting specialist as advanced. Within 3 months after beginning asparagus therapy, the skin specialist said her skin looked fine with no more skin lesions. This woman reported that the asparagus therapy also cured her kidney disease, which had started in 1949. She had over 10 operations for kidney stones, and was receiving government disability payments for an inoperable, terminal, kidney condition. She attributes the cure of this kidney trouble entirely to the asparagus treatment.

I was not surprised at this result as `The elements of materia medica', edited in 1854 by a Professor at the University of Pennsylvania, and stated that asparagus was used as a popular remedy for kidney stones. He even referred to experiments, in 1739, on the power of asparagus in dissolving stones. Note the dates!
We would have other case histories but the medical establishment has interfered with our obtaining some of the records. I am therefore appealing to readers to spread this good news and help us to gather a large number of case histories that will overwhelm the medical skeptics about this unbelievably simple and natural remedy.

For the treatment, asparagus should be cooked before using. Fresh or canned asparagus can be used. I have corresponded with the two leading canners of asparagus, Giant and Stokely, and I am satisfied that these brands contain no pesticides or preservatives.

Place the cooked asparagus in a blender and liquefy to make a puree. Store in the refrigerator. Give the patient 4 full tablespoons twice daily, morning and evening
. Patients usually show some improvement in 2-4 weeks.
 
It can be diluted with water and used as a cold or hot drink. This suggested dosage is based on present experience, but certainly larger amounts can do no harm and may be needed in some cases.

As a biochemist I am convinced of the old saying that `what cures can prevent.' Based on this theory, my wife and I have been using asparagus puree as a beverage with our meals. We take 2 tablespoons diluted in water to suit our taste with breakfast and with dinner. I take mine hot and my wife prefers hers cold.
For years we have made it a practice to have blood surveys taken as
part of our regular checkups. The last blood survey, taken by a medical doctor who specializes in the nutritional approach to health, showed substantial improvements in all categories over the last one, and we can attribute these improvements to nothing but the asparagus drink.

As a biochemist, I have made an extensive study of all aspects of cancer, and all of the proposed cures. As a result, I am convinced that asparagus fits in better with the latest theories about cancer.

Asparagus contains a good supply of protein called histones, which are believed to be active in controlling cell growth. For that reason, I believe asparagus can be said to contain a substance that I call cell growth normalizer.

That accounts for its action on cancer and in acting as a general body tonic In any event, regardless of theory, asparagus used as we suggest, is a harmless substance. The FDA cannot prevent you from using it and it may do you much good. It has been reported by the US National Cancer Institute, that asparagus is the highest tested food containing glutathione, which is considered one of the body's most potent ant carcinogens and antioxidants.

Just a side note... In case you are wondering why this has not been made public, there is no profit in curing cancer!

Please send this article to everyone in your Address Book. The most unselfish act one can ever do is paying forward all the kindness one has received.

Free the Lakota Children!

Hearts on the Ground




This is exactly what happened to my child - Katoya Fawn - who the Family Court of Rockland County. NY effectively took away from her Dad. I have not seen her in seven years! While I supposedly have all visitation rights - DSS blocks the enforcement of those rights at every turn.

So I have learned to accept that - I am 67 winters and will probably never see my little girl again. For sure I will never see the little one I remember because she is growing up. My support is fully paid, I petitioned for a downward support modification in Dec. 2013 and was given a court date of May 2014. So I know where this is going as well.

This is the justice system that we think is taking care of us. Most turn away because they don't want to get involved. Yet these same people say they want to be my friend. Friendship is conditional on the supposition that they never have to extend themselves for my friendship! I would rather have no friends!

So "Hearts on the Ground" is a true fact for this Dad as well as many Native people.

If your Native You Don't matter...........

Taking Advantage of the Section 184 Loan Guarantee Program


In 1992, “The Section 184 Indian Home Loan Guarantee Program” was put into action by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). It is affectionately referred to as Section 184 and its purpose is to make it easier for American Indian and Native Alaskan families, Alaska Villages, Tribes, or Tribally Designated Housing Entities to get home loans on tribal trusts, individual allotted trusts, or fee simple land in an operating area.

Resources for Section 184 Help
If that last description sounded a little confusing, then don’t worry, it is. It can be hard to decipher what exactly falls under “tribal trusts” or “fee simple land”. Luckily you’re not alone. There are several helpful companies that specialize in obtaining Native American home loans. They can be a great resource once you’ve decided to apply for one. 

If you’re not sure whether you qualify for a Section 184 loan than one of the best resources will be HUD itself. You can contact regional staff members whose job it is to help you with any questions you have. Sometimes you can qualify, even if you live far from your reservation, so don’t be afraid to ask every question you can. Home loans are a big decision and these staff member’s job was created solely to provide service to you.

3 Uses of Section 184 Loans
Purchase a Home. You can use it to purchase a home on your reservation or in participating fee simple areas away from your reservation.
Refinancing. There are several different ways to refinance.
Streamline- To reduce the interest rate or the term of your loan this may be your best bet.
Cashout- This is an option to consolidate debts or get cash.
Standard Refinance- you can refinance if your current loan is not a Section 184 loan.
New Construction.  This loan is flexible and can allow you to build a variety of homes that will meet the needs of your family. This loan can also be used for renovations, remodels, or the expansion of an existing home.

Do What’s Best for You
As with any kind of financial decision, these options are highly dependent on your individual situation. These loans may not be right for everyone so use all the resources at your disposal to thoroughly research which avenue is right for you. You could be taking the first steps to one the greatest investments you’ll ever make!
