Eliminate UTI, Bladder And Kidney Infections (Good For Cystitis, too)

You won’t find a lengthy explanation about UTI, bladder and kidney infections in this article (for more information, go here), but you will find a great way to heal yourself quickly and without antibiotics. Here’s the recipe. It really works!

6 oz water
1/2 fresh squeezed lemon
1 tablespoon vinegar
Alternative sweetener to taste (I use stevia)
1 teaspoon D-mannose

Oh! Don’t have D-mannose? Don’t know what it is? Here’s the information from NOW brand’s powdered D-mannose that is probably available at just about any health food store. Here’s the back of the bottle.

“D-mannose is a naturally occurring simple sugar that your body utilizes to help cleanse the urinary tract and maintain a healthy bladder lining. It’s metabolized only in small amounts, with excess amounts rapidly excreted in urine, so it won’t interfere with healthy blood sugar regulation. Clinical studies have demonstrated that when taken regularly, D-mannose promotes normal urinary tract function by cleansing and maintaining the health of the bladder lining.”

Here’s the front of the bottle.

If you’re skeptical (like me), read Dr. Mercola’s article or research Google for the clinical trials.

I recommend using the powder. It’s cheaper and your body doesn’t have to digest any capsules.

Why the lemon and vinegar together? Each is a different kind of acid. Lemon is good for rebuilding your gut flora so you can fight these infections. Vinegar (with the mother) breaks down excess fats and substances that your body has not eliminated – call it ‘sludge’. We all have it unless we are working constantly to remove it.

Here’s how to does yourself:

Drink the above concoction every 2-3 hours throughout the day for 2 days. Take it 3 times a day for another 3 days so that you’ve taken this drink for 5 days. Infections and inflammation can easily recur if you stop doing this regimen after only a couple of days.

IMPORTANT instruction. Don’t drink any other liquid for at least 45 minutes. This allows time for the drink to move through your kidneys and into the bladder where it can begin enticing those e-coli critters to attach to it.

(OK, it’s time for a little explanation. The e-coli bugs have hooks on their tendrils that attach to sugar. Our bladders are lined with sugar from our high sugar diets, thus the little critters like it in there. They get warm, cozy and well-fed and then they multiply causing your infection. D-mannose is a better looking sugar to them, so they detach from the lining of your bladder and attack to the D-mannose, instead. When you pee, out they go! And when yo’ve peed enough, you eliminate the bugs without the need for harmful antibiotics.)

I dislike complicated regimens, therefore I look for the easiest, cheapest and most effective way to do things. For my cystitis, this one is the best I’ve found. And, no, cranberry doesn’t work for me.

Use this drink periodically throughout the week to maintain bladder health and prevent future outbreaks. I use a 1 liter bottle, adapting the recipe for the amounts, and drink it throughout the day.

How To Hydrate Your Body And Protect Your Kidneys


Water all over the globe is in short supply and has been adulterated as much as our food. One reason we don’t know how much water we need is because drinking it is not as satisfying as it should be. Why is that? Corporations have made a business out of stripping the minerals and trace elements our bodies need out of bottled water. They replace trace quantities of the most popular minerals – mostly calcium, magnesium and potassium – to fool us. It is what they did with white flour, remember. Stripping the wheat of nutrients our bodies need, then replacing them with trace amounts of just a few vitamins. Not only is this unhealthy, but it actually becomes poisonous to us and kills over time with long-term, chronic diseases.

The health of our bodies depend on getting the complete nutrition of food and water. There are things we can do to help ourselves. Regarding water, here is how to regain some of what was lost to the bottled water industry adulterated water:

How To Properly Evaluate Another Person’s Heart


It is human nature to criticize, judge and execute judgment on others. We don’t like that done to ourselves, but we are often more than happy to do that to everyone else who does not measure up to our personal yard stick. The Corinthians had this kind of trouble in their congregation. The question is what is the proper way to evaluate another person’s heart?

1Co 1:11 My brothers, some members of Chloe’s family have made it clear to me that there are quarrels among you.

Their particular quarrel was about which man was the better one to follow.

1Co 1:12 This is what I mean: Each of you is saying, “I belong to Paul,” or “I belong to Apollos,” or “I belong to Cephas,” or “I belong to the Messiah.”

It is a silly quarrel which Paul points out then promptly tells them to get some wisdom – some Godly wisdom, leaving the nonsense of the world behind – because this is how worldly people act.

1Co 1:19 For it is written, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the intelligence of the intelligent I will reject.”
1Co 1:20 Where is the wise person? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? God has turned the wisdom of the world into nonsense, hasn’t he?

Immature believers – spiritual babies – whine, cry and complain about others. Mature believers do not.

1Co 3:1 Brothers, I couldn’t talk to you as spiritual people but as worldly people, as mere infants in the Messiah.
1Co 3:2 I gave you milk to drink, not solid food, because you weren’t ready for it. And you’re still not ready!
1Co 3:3 That’s because you are still worldly. As long as there is jealousy and quarreling among you, you are worldly and living by human standards, aren’t you?

The Corinthians were quarreling because they were still babies thinking that their personal opinion about which teacher to follow was more important than delving into the Torah to get real nourishment, the meat. Instead, they continued to suck on the milk through their jealousies. They were trying to plumb the depths of each others’ souls, claiming to know each others’ thoughts. They should have been plumbing, judging and evaluating the Torah, instead.

Paul encouraged them to let go of the things of this world and to grab hold of the spiritual things of the Messiah’s Spirit. There is more in that realm to keep us busy than we can possibly scrutinize in a a lifetime. He pointed us to the evaluation of the things of God rather than attempting to evaluate the inner being of others.

1Co 2:15 The spiritual person evaluates everything but is subject to no one else’s evaluation.

We are able to evaluate and judge everything in the LORD’s creation from the most basic to the deepest level. Yet, no man is able to judge the depths of another man’s soul.

We often seek to judge and execute our judgment on others from what we think is in their heart. The fact is that no human is able to plumb the depths of another person’s heart. All that we can do is to judge people by their actions. We have to leave the judging of other peoples’ interior landscapes to YHVH.

1Co 3:3 That’s because you are still worldly. As long as there is jealousy and quarreling among you, you are worldly and living by human standards, aren’t you?

How, then, is Paul able to make a judgment that people in the Corinthian congregation are jealous? Isn’t jealousy subjective and part of a person’s interior landscape that can only be judged by YHVH? No. That is because of the quarreling Paul addresses. Where there is quarreling, there is jealousy or some other internal spiritual sickness going on.

1Co 3:4 For when one person says, “I follow Paul,” and another person says, “I follow to Apollos,” you’re following your own human nature, aren’t you?

It is evident that they are following their human nature because what is inside a person does come out of them. We know what is inside of someone by what he DOES! We don’t know what is inside a person by trying to ascertain what we think is in his heart. If there is evil in someone’s heart, it will come out eventually. Until such time as the evil comes out and we can actually point to the LORD’s list of crimes against the Torah – i.e. the commandments – we can’t make a case against the person. That is why we must always be able to list incidences and occurrences of sins and describe which commandments have been broken. It is not enough to say we “know their heart”.

In the case of these Corinthians, one might point to any number of commandments that they are breaking. For instance, the situations with Miriam and Korah come to mind. While there are no specific commandments about gossip and power-grabbing, the fact that these two were judged for their actions should be warning to us. Miriam and Korah’s actions did not come from righteous judgment, which we are commanded to uphold, but rather from the jealousy in their own hearts. Their jealousy and that of these Corinthians have the same root and the same result.

Miriam’s words showed what was in her heart toward Moses. Before she spoke, no one knew what was in there. But it eventually came out, didn’t it? The same with Korah. He was a power-grabber who gathered 250 other leaders in the camp to join him against Moses and Aaron. Korah was going to build his own kingdom on the LORD’s territory. The actions of Miriam and Korah become principles to live by and principles by which each of us will also be judged as the LORD judged them.

1Co 3:14 If what a person has built on the foundation survives, he will receive a reward.
1Co 3:15 If his work is burned up, he will suffer loss. However, he himself will be saved, but it will be like going through fire.

What we contribute to the Kingdom will come under scrutiny by Yeshua. What remains after the fire of His Spirit has done its work is what our rewards will be based on. It would be better for us if we made sure that our actions and the words that come from our mouths are building the Kingdom and not destroying it before we act or speak. Why waste our time with unprofitable actions or speech that will only get burned up when we could be building His Kingdom and getting a greater reward later – a reward that will make it through His test by fire?

1Co 3:16 You know that you are God’s sanctuary and that God’s Spirit lives in you, don’t you?
1Co 3:17 If anyone destroys God’s sanctuary, God will destroy him, for God’s sanctuary is holy. And you are that sanctuary!

We are a holy congregation. None of us are holy individually. We are only holy within the congregation. Paul speaks to the people saying “you”, plural, are the sanctuary. Is the sanctuary holy? Yes! Are we to treat it as holy? Yes! Then why do we treat each other as just another common item on the earth to be loved or despised at our own whims?

1Co 3:20 and again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are worthless.”

The thoughts of the worldly wise are worthless. The thoughts of His Spirit are worth His entire Kingdom.

1Co 3:21 So let no one boast about human beings, since everything belongs to you,
1Co 3:22 whether Paul, Apollos, Cephas, the world, life, death, the present, or the future—everything belongs to you,
1Co 3:23 but you belong to the Messiah, and the Messiah belongs to God.

In the end, there is only the Messiah. Individually we are nothing. We are only “something” by, in and through Him! The answer to the question, “what is the proper way to evaluate another person’s heart?” is that we can’t and should not even try. We must turn our evaluations inward. Our walk with the Messiah is one of introspection and evaluation of ourselves and being at peace with others, acting in mercy and kindness, leaving our jealousies to burn on the daily altar because it comes from our flesh and not His Spirit.

The One And Only Commandment With A Promise



We tend to think of commandments as those restrictions on our lives that prevent us from doing certain actions. We are forbidden to murder, commit adultery, lie, steal and desire what others have. But the commandments are much more than that. They are about our relationship with God and with others. The last five of ten have to do with our relationships with others, but the first five are about our relationship with God. And one of those first five commandments come with a promise.

Exo 20:12  “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you.

Honoring our parents is the fifth commandment. It is the last one written on one side of the two tablets. There is a promise attacked to it because it has to do with our relationship to God more than to other people.

Apostle Paul repeats this commandments in


The reason for this is because if we able to honor our earthly parents we will have no problem honoring and obeying our heavenly Father. Disciplining ourselves in this manner is the key to our ability to withstand the worst that life can throw at us. Why? It is because


That’s right. Parents are not perfect. In fact, some are downright awful! But if we can master the art of honoring them even when they are awful, then we will have learned how to love others as God loves us. We are to do this so that we can learn to obey God and to lay our lives down for others. Nothing honors our God more than our ability to lay down our lives for them. And nothing helps us in life more than the ability to obey which is nothing more than being able to learn from others.

I have often said that I don’t have enough lifetimes to make all the mistakes that it is possible for a person to make and that is why I need to learn from others. Learning from others is a “learned” discipline that starts with obeying our parents. We learn from them by deciding to do what they do or by not doing what they do depending on whether they are loving and kind or the worst parents in the world. Either way, if we are smart, we will learn from them and for those lessons we owe them honor.

Essential Oils: Safe Or Dangerous?


Essential oils are powerful substances that can radically change our health. If you’re like me, that means if a little is good, a lot is better. We know not to overdose on pharmaceuticals, yet when it comes to essential oil, herbs and other natural remedies, we throw caution to the wind. Our modern culture has taught us that only pharmaceuticals are potent and that “natural” substances are not. This viewpoint can be helpful or dangerous depending on the remedy.

Essential oils are the the oily constituents of plants. The most important health benefits comes from the oils. Herbs made into teas and tinctures have only a fraction of the potency of an oil. Take peppermint, for example. Did you know that one drop of peppermint oil is equivalent to 28 cups of peppermint tea? In other words, using peppermint leaves, you would have to make and drink 28 cups of tea to get the level of potency and benefit found in just one drop of essential oil.


This is the reason it is so very important for us to pay attention to the proper use of essential oils. While peppermint can be taken topically, aromatically and internally, there are some oils that should not be taken internally. There are some that require limited use.

Eucalyptus and sage are two such oils that require caution. Eucalyptus is great for colds when used externally, but has been known to cause seizures in children when taken internally in a capsule or by a drop under the tongue. The same is true for sage. These are just two examples that show how potent essential oils are and the reason for keeping them out of the reach of children. It is important to make proper use of the oils.

This handy guide will help with that. It lists the various ways each oil may be used. Please follow the directions carefully. Do not take an oil internally if the label does not list taking internally as safe. Dilute when the label says ‘dilute’. Fractionated coconut oil is the best carrier for dilution.

When using essential oils, don’t be afraid of them anymore than you would be an herbal or pharmaceutical, just keep in mind these are powerful remedies – more powerful than herbals and often more powerful than their pharmaceutical counterparts – and they require caution just any over-the-counter or prescription remedy does.


Essential Oils Fraud



The world is  full of fraudulent products – corn syrup for honey, vegetable oil for olive oil and now synthetic fragrance for lavender essential oil. This post came to my attention by my mentor:


This was no surprise to me, based on the odor alone it was obvious that it wasn’t true lavender. But in perhaps the most overt case of product misrepresentation observed by this lab in quite a while, the surprising thing is that this synthetic fragrance did not even include any true lavender as one of its ingredients. Notice the bottle label proclaims “Lavandula angustifolia 100% pure oil.” But when looking at the GC/MS analysis I honestly could not find any trace of the essential oil of Lavandula angustifolia in this poorly compounded fragrance. Normally I highlight all the components that are wrong about a sample but in this case I didn’t because I would have to highlight the entire list! Notice the DPG (dipropylene glycol, an odorless synthetic fragrance diluent) as well as many other components that don’t occur in nature. Even the components like linalool and linalyl acetate, which are components of lavender oil, are the synthetic versions as given away by the marker peaks of dihydrolinalool and dihydrolinayl acetate. The final proof that there is no actual lavender oil in the product is the complete absence of key minor components like lavandulyl acetate, beta-caryophyllene, etc.

This bottle sells for $19.99. Estimated cost of the actual 1/2 ounce of synthetic fragrance oil inside the bottle is maybe 25 cents, max, when purchased in bulk. Here is the link to the description of the product which is falsely claimed to be a steam distilled oil:

http://www.bestbuy.com/…/pureguardian-spa-100-pu…/4337900.p… .

I really hope people have not purchased this product and used it in some of the therapeutic ways that they would normally use true lavender oil. Please don’t take this post the wrong way, I love Best Buy, I shop there all the time for my computer accessory and audio/video equipment etc., but they should stick to what they know.

You don’t have to get your essential oils from me, but at least make sure that the oils you get are genuine and that the quality controls in place result in a consistent product so that you can count on it.

The Heavy Metal Cleansing Benefits of Black Sesame Seeds

sesame_black sesame_white


Everyone knows about sesame seeds. They’re tiny pale yellow seeds that taste good on everything and in everything. Entire cultures rely on sesame seeds for tahini which is a major ingredient in many international dishes. But almost no one knows about black sesame seeds. Maybe that should change.

Did you know black sesame seeds have the ability to bind heavy metals in the body so they can be eliminated? Ground black sesame seeds (Sesamum indicum L.) were shown to effectively bind to cadmium, lead, and mercury under simulated physiological conditions.

Efforts to cleanse the body of heavy metals can sometimes result in other illnesses. Chelating agents used in heave metal detoxification can bind to many essential minerals in the body, such as calcium, zinc, and iron. This binding can result in deficiencies of those much needed minerals producing negative health effects. Black sesame seeds, unlike other chelating agents used for heavy metal detoxification, exhibit selectivity towards the heavy metals, leaving the much needed minerals alone.

Sesame seeds are full of calcium, magnesium, copper, vitamin B1, zinc and dietary fiber. The black sesame seed may be small but it has many health-promoting and anti-aging benefits.

Simply eat the seeds as a snack like other kinds of nuts or serve on salads and rice (adds a nice touch of color) to give a special aroma and crunchy taste.

Bon appetit!


The Merciful Way To Settle Disputes



Why do we continue on the wrong track when it comes to working out problems and disputes between believers? We keep repeating the same thing over and over like we are insane! Why do we think that we can solve our problem with someone by talking to others about it? Is it because we are secretly rejoicing that we have the chance to put that person in his place? Is it because we are jealous of him or we don’t like him for some reason and we want to show ourselves to to be superior like being in the Kingdom is some sort of competition with others rather than with ourselves? If so, we have missed the point. Our competition is OUR flesh, not someone else’s flesh.

Jas 4:1 What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you?
Jas 4:2 You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask.
Jas 4:3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.
Jas 4:4 You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

The Bible gave us the solution to our problems with others, but we ignore it with avoidance behaviors.

Mat 18:15 “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother.

We either sweep it under the rug or we run to our friends for support and consolation. Sweeping problems under the rug will only cause the pile of dirt to grow if that person offends us again. Running to our friends for support and consolation is to give a false report. It is an accusation of someone without giving him the compassion and mercy to let him face his accuser. Both of these behaviors are unjust.

The lie of the devil is always that the Torah’s way of handling situations will not work. I know satan has told me that lie. The right thing to do is to go the person with whom I have a dispute, right? Yet, satan says, “He won’t listen”, or “You’ll lose a friend”, or “This will result in a fight”, and “You need to avoid further conflict. Go talk to Suzy, instead. If you vent to her, you’ll feel better”. I’m almost 60 years old and I can tell that talking to Suzy about Joe has never made feel better. It has only served to build my resentment toward Joe.

The Bible and Yeshua’s protocol is to NOT to avoid our brethren in any matters of offence or dispute. In fact, Yeshua, through Paul, said to not even let the sun go down on our anger.

Eph 4:26 Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, Eph 4:27 and give no opportunity to the devil.

Yet we will sometimes wait for years before we address the problem properly.

It is nerve racking to go to someone about our offense toward him. It makes the blood pressure rise and the heart pound. Will he attack me with words that hurt me or even attack me physically? Will the friendship be utterly destroyed and no reconciliation happen? But the worst fear is that we will find out about our own contribution to the dispute. Facing ourselves is worse than anything anyone else can do to us.

Going to the one with whom we have a dispute requires the ability to lay down our life for him. We have to be willing to be wrong and to repent. We have to be willing to love him even though we are angry with him because this is what justice requires. We have to be capable of showing good fruit – love, patience, kindness, compassion – in the face of possible backlash from him. If we are not capable of showing such good fruit, then we will definitely be afraid of confronting our problem with our brother.

There is recourse if we go to a brother to reconcile a dispute that results in backlash and/or abuse from him.

Mat 18:16 But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses.

It is only after we have made the attempt that we now have authorization to go to others to discuss it for the purpose of getting help. But we must choose the right people. We are still not to choose our personal friends because no reconciliation can come from that, only more hard feelings. Instead, we are to approach elders, men and women of high integrity that are held in high regard, to help us.

The help they give should be to arrange a meeting between our brother, themselves and us. But what if the brother won’t come? The next step is to call a public meeting with the entire community or congregation where the person who has the dispute with the brother will give testimony about the dispute and the step he took to repair the breach with his brother. Then, the elders whose attempt to arrange another meeting which was rebuffed will testify that the brother is not willing to work out the problem.

Mat 18:17 If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.

Why is this protocol, rather than everyone running around talking about it on separate occasions, YHVH’s preferred method? It is because everyone will have the same story. There won’t be different accounts floating around the community as long as everyone will refrain from having more closed-door meetings with their friends afterward to compare notes. But more importantly, it gives the community the opportunity to follow the Bible and the elders’ recommendation of “setting the offender outside the camp”.

Remember Miriam when she bad-mouthed Moses? The LORD set her outside the camp for that. Her being outside the camp held up the progress of the whole congregation for an entire week!

Num 12:1 Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Cushite woman whom he had married, for he had married a Cushite woman.
Num 12:2 And they said, “Has the LORD indeed spoken only through Moses? Has he not spoken through us also?” And the LORD heard it.
Num 12:3 Now the man Moses was very meek, more than all people who were on the face of the earth.
Num 12:4 And suddenly the LORD said to Moses and to Aaron and Miriam, “Come out, you three, to the tent of meeting.” And the three of them came out.
Num 12:5 And the LORD came down in a pillar of cloud and stood at the entrance of the tent and called Aaron and Miriam, and they both came forward.
Num 12:6 And he said, “Hear my words: If there is a prophet among you, I the LORD make myself known to him in a vision; I speak with him in a dream.

Num 12:15 …So Miriam was shut outside the camp seven days, and the people did not set out on the march till Miriam was brought in again.

Why would the LORD hold everything up, make no further progress toward the Promised Land, until Miriam’s time outside the camp was over? It is because our flesh cannot inherit the Kingdom. All disputes have something to do with someone’s flesh. In the case of Miriam and Moses, it was Miriam’s flesh and it teaches us that someone can be 100% in the wrong. When Yeshua was crucified, it was because peoples’ flesh was involved. He was 100% in the right, they were 100% in the wrong. Usually though, disputes are proportioned between the people involved.

Setting the offender outside the camp for non-reconciliation is the right thing to do.

Mat 18:17 If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.

But it takes the agreement of the entire community or congregation for this to be effective. In the context of the culture back then, a Gentile was not permitted in the congregation until he had come into covenant with YHVH. This requires repentance, turning away from the world’s culture where we can do anything we like and treat people any way we see fit. The former brother who has been set outside the camp is not permitted to worship or be part of the congregation unless he repents and restores the covenant to himself. The purpose of doing this is to cause the offending brother to come to his senses and realize that he needs to repent and reconcile. That is how he will be saved in the day of the LORD.

In the case of someone who was committing sexual immorality, Paul said:

1Co 5:5 …you are to deliver this man to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord.
1Co 5:11 But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler–not even to eat with such a one.
1Co 5:12 For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge?
1Co 5:13 God judges those outside. “Purge the evil person from among you.”

This is the same protocol given in Matthew 18:17. The only difference is the list of reasons given in 1 Corinthians is expanded more than in Matthew. In Matthew 18:15-17, the reason Yeshua gives for setting someone outside the camp is for non-repentance only. But as with Miriam, slander is a reason for doing this, too. In the Torah, sexual immorality is punished by death. Paul could not tell the Corinthians to kill the sinner because they lived in a foreign country with its own different laws. Paul could only recommend they set the man outside the congregation.

Let us use the key to the Kingdom and “loose”, or stop acting from our flesh, and “bind”, or be willing to lay down our lives, for the cause of justice toward each other. Only then will the LORD stop holding up the coming of His Kingdom and let us make progress for its return.

Mat 18:18 Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

Let us loose the evil that is causing confusion between ourselves and others and bind ourselves to the way Yeshua loves His people. Remember our “kedushah”, our duty to uphold that which the LORD says is holy. He said His congregation is a “holy people”. Therefore, when we approach each other, let us do it as if we approaching something that is holy to the LORD.
