I know it has been a while since my last post and I apologize:( I had a new grand baby that was born and he has been keeping me occupied:)  But, I am back and I am making a pledge to post at least once a week!  I want to talk about Cayenne pepper today and it’s many, many benefits.  It is not called the king of herbs for nothing.

“Capsicum is an age-old remedy used for improving circulation. Its long-term use also reduces inflammation in blood vessels, purifies the blood by expelling toxins and poisons, promotes healing and reduces infection, normalizes blood pressure, reduces cholesterol, prevents blood clots…Capsicum pepper enhances the health of the circulatory and digestive systems by increasing the flow of enzymes and enhancing the function of organs.”

Main medical applications: Today cayenne is used worldwide to treat a variety of health conditions, including weak digestion, chronic pain, shingles, heart disease , sore throats, headaches, high cholesterol levels, poor circulation, and toothache.

Cayenne is a powerful and pure stimulant, having NO narcotic effect, increasing the power of the pulse and carrying the blood to ALL parts of the body, plus equalizing and restoring the balance of circulation throughout the body ! Cayenne is a Hemostat, arresting the flow of blood from a cut or wound in seconds and a cardiac tonic, helping to rebuild the heart. It is an Antiseptic, killing pathogens and a Counter-Irritant, helping to relieve pain. And cayenne is a Stomachic, helping to digest foods and a Carminative, helping to expel gas.

Indian Ayurvedic, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean medicines use cayenne to treat many different conditions. One Ayurvedic remedy for pain combines cayenne and mustard seeds into a paste to be applied to the affected area. Ayurvedic medicine also utilizes cayenne to treat gas and poor digestion. Chinese medicine employs cayenne for digestive ailments. An ointment or tincture made from cayenne is used in China and Japan to heal frostbite and myalgia (muscle pains). The German Commission E has approved cayenne in the treatment of painful muscle spasms, arthritis, rheumatism, neuralgia, lumbago, and chilblains.

Applications Cayenne tincture:

• Cardiovascular support; cleans the blood and stimulates the entire system. Helps clear blockages from arteries, veins and lymphatic system. Also stops bleeding and dissolves blood clots. • Improves brain function; one of the most well-known effects is that of increasing blood circulation to the head- and brain area. Effective against cluster and migraine headaches • Can stop bleeding extremely fast, immediately flush the wound with the tincture (1 – 5 full droppers) after this pack the wound with Cayenne powder. • Improves circulation, and reduces or stop bleeding from stomach ulcers. When taken internally, it stimulates circulation. Used against indigestion and heartburn. • Breaks up congestion and speeds healing of colds and flu, • Used as a diaphoretic (sweat inducing-herb) • Helps lower cholesterol and prevent blood clots: thins the blood and heal the heart after a heart attack. • Alleviate sore throats and tonsillitis • Provides far more vitamin C than citrus fruits, and is one of the highest sources available for this vitamin.

Constituents: Capsaicin.Carotenoids; capsanthin, capsorubin, carotene. Steroidal saponins (capsicidins).

Dosage: Tincture: 5 -30 drops, 3 times daily Infusion: 2 – 3 times daily


Dr. John Christopher’s wisdom and experience will be mainly drawn upon. Dr. Christopher was a Master Herbalist and Naturopathic Doctor of great renown here in America and even abroad. His teachings were learned by so many and his influence was so great, that most would agree that he stood out amongst the three largest promoters of natural healing in the latter half of the 20th Century.


1. HEART ATTACKS: In 35 years of practice, and working with the people and teaching, I have never on house calls lost one heart attack patient and the reason is, whenever I go in–if they are still breathing–I pour down them a cup of cayenne tea (a teaspoon of cayenne in a cup of hot water, and within minutes they are up and around). This is one of the fastest acting aids we could ever give for the heart, because it feeds that heart immediately. Most hearts are suffering from malnutrition because of processed food we are eating, but here it gets a good powerful dose of real food and it’s something that has brought people in time after time. This is something that everyone should know how great it is, because a heart attack can come to your friends or loved ones any time. And even yourself. The warm tea is faster working than tablets, capsules, cold tea, because the warm tea opens up the cell structure–makes it expand and accept the cayenne that much faster, and it goes directly to the heart, through the artery system, and feeds it in powerful food. [Dr. Christopher¹s Newsletter 1-12]

2. STERILIZE AND STOP BLEEDING: The old herbalists claimed that cayenne pepper (Capsicum or red pepper) should be poured directly into a fresh wound, to sterilize and stop the bleeding.

3. MENSTRUAL CRAMPS: If a young woman has menstrual problems, she can suspect that her female organs might not be in good condition. Although it should be needless to say, we should avoid drugs in managing our menstrual cramps. In order to treat the symptoms, some people favor red raspberry tea, peppermint tea, chamomile tea, or catnip tea. You can take a capsule of cayenne with any of these to help warm the internal organs. If the cramps are really severe, you can use cayenne ointment externally on the abdomen to act as a counter-irritant, but be sure to cover the application with gauze, as it can stain your underthings.

5. TINCTURE OF CAYENNE heals wounds, cuts through mucus, good for sore throats, and tonsillitis; milder solutions can be used in the nose, eyes, and ears for cleaning up microscopic “lounge lizards” in infections. Has been successfully used for resuscitation of newborn infants; a few drops administered orally. The best and safest stimulant known to man.

6. CAYENNE SALVE: It is excellent for stiff necks, sore muscles, headaches, pain, stiff joints, arthritis, etc. The salve ingredients are Olive Oil, African Birdpepper (Cayenne), Oil of Wintergreen, pure distilled mint crystals and beeswax.


1. STOP BLEEDING: A wound, external or internal, will stop bleeding if the individual will drink a cup of water (preferably hot) with a teaspoon of cayenne pepper (red pepper) stirred into it. The bleeding will stop generally by the time a person can count up to ten after drinking the cayenne tea. The cayenne equalizes the blood pressure from the top of the head to the feet. This keeps the pressure from the hemorrhage area so it will clot naturally, which it cannot do with heavy blood pressure pumping the blood rapidly at the hemorrhage area.

2. NOSEBLEEDS: A teaspoon of cayenne in a cup of water (hot preferred) taken internally will stop most nosebleeds quickly. In an emergency such as this we use cayenne. As mentioned a teaspoon of cayenne pepper in a glass of water and drunk right down will stop a nosebleed in nearly every instance, by the time you can count to ten. This is not a miracle; it is the principle of the cell stimulant cayenne traveling through the entire blood stream and regulating the pressure so the pressure of the flow is the same in the feet as in the head or any other part of the body. This takes the heavy pressure off the hemorrhaging area and allowing a quick coagulation.

3. SALVE: As needed topically.

Ingredients: Pure cayenne is the only ingredient in the powdered cayenne.

Salve ingredients are Olive Oil, African Birdpepper (Cayenne), Oil of Wintergreen, pure distilled mint crystals and beeswax.


1. EYES: Cayenne is also used for eyes, however extreme that might sound. Dr. Christopher recalled a student of his standing in front of a lecture and throwing a pinch of cayenne into one eye. Dr. Christopher was sure the student had lost his senses! But in a few moments the eye stopped watering, and it became clear, bright and healthy-looking. [This is why Dr. Christopher has Cayenne in his Herbal Eyebright formula].

2. DEEP CUT: A person in our audience told how he had cut deeply with a sharp instrument the inside of his hand, fingers and palm. The blood spurted out in streams. He poured a large amount of cayenne pepper into the wound, and within seconds the blood flow slowed down to congealed dripping and the bleeding stopped entirely before many seconds had passed. With a goodly amount of cayenne covering the wound, he then wrapped it. He was so excited about the rapid results he could hardly wait for the regular herb meeting. But, as he said, the “punch line” was lost, because instead of a nasty ragged scar to show how severely he had been hurt, the area was healed and there was no scar. [Dr. Christopher¹s Newsletter 1-12]

3. ULCERS: A lady had been attending our herbal lecture series for some time. One day she told us about her husband’s severe case of stomach ulcers. The recommendation from their doctor was to have part of his stomach removed, but he said he would rather suffer the pain than risk such an operation. He also refused his wife’s suggestion to try cayenne, ridiculing her studies. When he would see me in town, he would bellow, “Hello, Doc! Killed anybody with cayenne, today?” He became so obnoxious, I avoided him when I could. Months went by and one day I saw him coming down the street toward me. I tried to avoid him but he came “head on.” This time I was amazed because there were no cutting remarks or sarcasm. In fact, he was very apologetic and asked if he could talk to me for a minute, and then told me this story: He had come home from work one night, “sick enough to die,” with stomach ulcers. His wife was not home. He was in such pain he wanted to commit suicide. He went to the medicine cabinet to find some kind of medicine poisonous and deadly enough to kill him. But he discovered his wife had thrown out all the old bottles of pharmaceutical medicine. All that was left in the medicine cabinet were some herbs and a large container of cayenne pepper. He was so angry that, upon seeing the cayenne, he figured it in a large dose would kill him by burning him up. He took a heaping tablespoon of cayenne in a glass of hot water, gulped it down and rushed into the bedroom. He fell upon the bed and covered his head with a pillow so the neighbors couldn’t hear his “dying screams.” The next thing he knew, his wife was shaking him awake the next morning. She told him he had slept all night (instead of being up every half-hour for anti-acid tablets). To his amazement he discovered that the pain was gone, for the first time in months. He continued using cayenne three times a day faithfully. [Dr. Christopher¹s Newsletter 1-12]

4. BLOOD PRESSURE – Dr. Christopher’s Own Story: I had hardening of the arteries, during my 20 and 30 year span, to a point that it was very severe. No insurance company at this time, would even take me for a $1,000 policy. So you can tell how bad of a condition I was in. I was quite concerned about it, and started using cayenne. I worked up to a teaspoon three times a day, and I continued on from the time I was thirty-five and am still using it. It was amazing! By the time I was forty-five years of age, ten years after I had started using cayenne, a group wanted me to have a $100,000 policy to insure them on a business deal we were working out. I went for the examination. Being this large a policy, the insurance company required two medical doctors, each to give two physicals at various times (being four times to have physicals with these two doctors). I took the examination and one medical doctor when he got through, said, “Well, this is astounding. I see your age is forty-five years, but you have the venous structure of a teenage boy.” He said, “This is excellent,” and he gave me a clean bill of health. I went to the other doctor and on his second examination he did the blood pressure test on my arm. He pumped his equipment up five different times and my arm was getting irritated by it, and I was getting a little perturbed, and I said, “What’s the matter, doesn’t your equipment work?” “Oh yes, it always has up till now, but I keep looking at your chart and it says you are 45 years of age and yet your systolic over your diastolic is absolutely perfect. I cannot comprehend it.” I said, “That’s correct. It is perfect.” And he also gave me a clean bill of health. So I passed at 45 years of age for a $100,000 policy with a good blood pressure showing, thanks to the cayenne.

I have been told by medical doctors, that because of my arthritis, hardening of arteries, stomach ulcers and some auto accidents that banged me up pretty badly, that I couldn’t live past my 40th year. Yet, at 45 years I was pronounced in good condition. This, to me, was one of my biggest sales points on cayenne. If it could help me, it could help anybody. I have seen it used so many times over the years with such success, that I feel that it is one of our great herbs. [Dr. Christopher¹s Newsletter 1-12]

After Birth: Dr. Schulze, a medical doctor and herbalist, has used Cayenne Tincture for hemorrhage after childbirth. Squirt 15-20 dropperfuls directly into the vagina. The bleeding should stop in seconds.

Before and During Birth: The Cayenne Tincture can be taken orally, and will have the same effect of stopping bleeding quickly. If no tincture is available, a cup of cayenne tea, taken warm is also effective. Yes, it will be hot, but in an emergency, with the only other alternative being death, I don’t think you will mind.

It’s a good idea to have some of this Cayenne Tincture made up already. Please make it yourself, fresh. Any tincture bought at a store will be weak and useless. You will not be able to rely on store-bought tinctures in an emergency. Although tinctures usually take 14 days to make, in an emergency a fresh tincture will still be more potent than anything at the store.

The African Bird Pepper is the purest and best stimulant known. It has a pungent taste, and is the most persistent heart stimulant ever known. It is exceedingly prompt in its effect. Through the circulation, its influence is manifest throughout the whole body. The heart first, next the arteries, then the capillaries and the nerves. We have known, in cases of apoplexy, a bath of hot water and mustard with half a teaspoon of Cayenne added and the feet thrust in to give good results. The pressure is removed from the brain by equalizing of the circulation.

In setting forth the above uses of this agent, we do not wish the student to consider it a cure-all. Such is not the case; but where a stimulant is needed of this type, it will not fail the physician. It is not used more because its value is not realized. ” Dominion Herbal College – Chartered Herbalist Diploma Course Book

—Description—Cayenne or Capsicum derives its name from the Greek, ‘to bite,’ in allusion to the hot pungent properties of the fruits and seeds. Cayenne pepper was introduced into Britain from India in 1548, and Gerard mentioned it as being cultivated in his time. The plant was described by Linnaeus under the name of C. frutescens proper. This species appeared in Miller’s Garden Dictionary in 1771. It is a shrubby perennial plant 2 to 6 feet high. Branches angular, usually enlarged and slightly purple at the nodes; petioles medium; peduncles slender, often in pairs, and longer than the fruit; calyx cup-shaped, clasping base of fruit which is red, ovate, and long; seeds small and flat, from ten to twenty-nine. The cuticle of the pericarp is uniformly striated and in this particular is distinct from other species. Taste very pungent and smell characteristic. It is difficult to determine the source of true powdered Capsicum, as the colour is affected by light, so that it should always be kept in dark receptacles. African pepper is generally light brownish-yellow colour and very pungent; its pungency appears to depend on a principle called Capsicin. Cayenne is sometimes adulterated with oxide of red lead, which may be detected by digesting in dilute nitric acid. Other adulterants are coloured sawdust which can be found by the aid of the microscope. The British Pharmacopceia requires that capsicum should yield not more than 6 per cent of ash, and this test detects the presence of most adulterants.

—Constituents—Capsaicin, a red colouring matter, oleic, palmitic and stearic acids.

—Medicinal Action and Uses—A powerful local stimulant, with no narcotic effect largely used in hot climates as a condiment, and most useful in atony of the intestines and stomach. It should not be used in ordinary gastric catarrh. For persons addicted to drink it seems to be useful possibly by reducing the dilated blood-vessels and thus relieving chronic congestion. It is often added to tonics and is said to be unequalled for warding off diseases. Herbalists use it largely in pill form and powdered. Externally it is a strong rubefacient and acts gently with no danger of vesication; is applied as a cataplasm or as a liniment; it can be mixed with 10 to 20 per cent of cotton-seed oil. The powder or the tincture is beneficial for relaxed uvula. A preparation in use in the West Indies called Mandram, for weak digestion and loss of appetite, is made of thinly sliced and unskinned cucumbers, shallots, chives, or onions, lemon or lime juice, Madeira, and a few pods of bird pepper well mashed up in the liquids. It can be used as a chutney.

Cayenne Pepper Shown To Kill Cancer Cells By Glenn Reschke

The emergence of homeopathic and herbal remedies is on the rise due to the lack of progress made by the traditional allopathic approach. Billions has been spent on cancer research yet there is no cure in site. Perhaps not. Learn in this article how scientific researchers discovered that the simple herb cayenne pepper’s chief component actually causes cancer cells to kill themselves.

Did you know cayenne pepper has been documented as capable of destroying cancer cells? Who has reported this? None other than the American Association of Cancer Research. This should be reported in the American media but endless celebrity stories about Brittany Spears’ new hair cut or O.J.’s latest shenanigans are judged more important. With the stranglehold that Big Pharma and the government have on health information and services in this country, it’s not a surprise. It is, therefore, left to the truth seeker to discover alternative options.

Capsaicin, the key ingredient in cayenne pepper, kills androgen-independent prostate cancer cells within the male body. Aside from its numerous and varied health benefits, cayenne pepper’s anticancer properties should be enough to warrant a closer look but when one considers cayenne’s heart health benefits not to mention its affects upon every organ in the body, it rightly qualifies as nothing short of miraculous.

In an article entitled, “Hot Pepper Kills Prostate Cancer Cells in Study” as published in Reuters on March 16, 2006, Dr. Soren Lehmann of the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and the University of California Los Angeles School of Medicine said the following, “Capsaicin had a profound anti-proliferative effect on human prostate cancer cells in culture.” It caused 80 percent of the prostate cancer cells growing in mice to “commit suicide in a process known as apoptosis.” Additionally, researchers said this in Cayenne Pepper “dramatically slowed the development of prostate tumors formed by those human cell lines grown in mouse models.”

Researchers say that while there is not that much difference in prostate cancer cells from other cancerous cells so this study is quite interesting to say the least. So, how do you take cayenne pepper? You can take it in a capsule form, but its greatest benefits are taken by drinking it? “Drinking it”? Yes, taking it orally. By doing so, it has a literal immediate effect. You simply mix 1/4th of a teaspoon of cayenne pepper powder in an eight ounce glass of water (distilled or purified water is best), mix it up and drink it. Don’t worry, it won’t hurt you but is highly beneficial. In time, you’ll want to move up to a full teaspoon or more, but start slow. The body will adapt. The first few times you take it, it will come out of your eliminative organs with some heat. Don’t be alarmed. It’s perfectly natural. By the third time I drank it, my body had acclimated.

Cayenne pepper has amazing curative and healing powers and is fantastic for the entire system. Its effects upon the venous structure and heart are nothing short of miraculous.

Famed homeopathic herbalist Dr. John Christopher testified repeatedly that by getting his patients to take cayenne pepper, it could immediately stop a heart attack. It is enormously nourishing to the heart but that is not its only health benefit. It is now a scientifically proven catalyst to destroying cancer cells as well as stopping their growth — and that’s something every cancer sufferer should know.
I use organic cayenne pepper in powder form and I take 1 tsp twice a day in very warm water with 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar added in stir until dissolved and drink down quickly with a water chaser:)  You will have to build up to 2 tsp a day I wouldn’t start off with that right away….try 1/8 tsp twice a day until you can build up to 2 tsp a day.

until next time be safe and here’s to your health:)


The Many Uses of Castile Soap

Posted: January 13, 2012 in Uncategorized

Castile soap is made from pure oils.  I love the short and simple ingredient list on my Dr. Bronner’s Baby Mild castile soap: Water, Saponified Organic Coconut & Organic Olive Oils (w/Retained Glycerin), Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Citric Acid, Vitamin E.  It also comes in many different scents, and is scented with essential oils, like citrus, eucalyptus and lavender.

I have found castile soap at Target as well as my local health food store.  But the best prices and selection can usually be found online at Amazon and several other online stores.

The reason castile soap is so great is that it is so multi-functional.  Because you can use it for so many different things, it’s one more way to help you simplify your personal care products, and green cleaning routine.

Here’s what I use it for:

  • Body Wash – It just takes a little squirt on one of those bath poofs and you have tons of soapy lather in the shower.  And the citrus scent is so energizing – it’s great for helping me wake up in the morning.  I’ve been using it full strength in the shower, but I think I’m going to try to dilute it because it’s so concentrated and that will help it stretch even farther!
  • Shaving “cream” – I was never a big shaving cream user.  I would just use my regular body wash, so this isn’t that big of a difference, but I do really like shaving with castile soap.  It has a lot of lather and because it’s made out of oils, I feel like my razors slides better than when I was just using regular body wash.  Also, I feel like it’s pretty moisturizing and haven’t needed to use lotion much this winter.
  • Baby Wash – This also works great as a head to toe baby wash.  You do have to be a little careful with it around their eyes because it’s not tear free, but especially if you dilute it, it shouldn’t be too much of a problem.  You can also squirt it in the bathtub to create a bubble bath for your kiddos. The bubbles won’t last as long as traditional bubble bath, but it’s still fun for them.
  • Hand Soap – Use a foaming soap dispenser and fill it up with water and then add a few squirts of castile soap. (Another great way to avoid triclosan!)  It’s also great for kids because it makes a lot of fun bubbles to wash with, but without the nasty chemicals in popular kids’ soaps like Kandoo.
  • Baby Wipes– I use castile soap and Tea Tree Oil mixed with water as a homemade solution for baby wipes.  These wipes are great for changing diapers, but also great just to use for wiping hands and faces after eating, for cleaning spots of spit-up or other stains off of clothing, just about anything you would use a disposable baby wipe for.(pour 1 cup of water a few squirts of castile soap and a few drops of tea tree oil, mix and pour over home made wipes)
  • Home made multipurpose cleanser – a good multipurpose cleaner is castile soap and Tea Tree Oil mixed with water in a spray bottle. (fill a bottle with water add a few squirts of castile soap and a few drops of tea tree oil)
  • Home made soft scrub– This is a great non-toxic cleanser for the bathroom.Ingredients
    3/4 cup baking soda (slightly heaped)
    1/4 cup castile soap (I use Dr. Bronners Peppermint)
    1 Tablespoon water
    1 Tablespoon vinegarMethod
    In a bowl, combine the baking soda and castile soap. Add the water and stir with a fork.Lastly, stir in the vinegar. The mixture will fizz a little. Stir to make a nice soft, paste-like, consistency. (This is important – the vinegar must go in last or else the scrub will be like sludge instead of a creamy paste.)

    Scoop out the scrub with a sponge and start cleaning.

    This scrub can also be used to clean the toilet.

The label on Dr. Bronner’s brand of castile soap is definitely interesting, and maybe even a little weird, when you read over it.  But, it does list lots of different uses for castile soap, some of which I have tried myself, and some of which I have not.

More uses for castile soap:

  • Use to wash your hair instead of shampoo. I did try it once but, didn’t feel great…I might try mixing with more oils next time.
  • Brush your teeth with it. I have made a homemade toothpaste that includes castile soap I will post soon:) 
  • Use for laundry. heard it works good but haven’t tried it yet.
  • Dishwashing liquid. I have read that some people squirt castile soap right into the sink full of water to wash dishes with.  I have tried a recipe of 1 cup castile soap, 1/2 cup water and 1 tsp. of lemon juice (or vinegar) to cut grease.  You can put this in an old dishwashing liquid bottle and shake it up before you squirt it into your dishwashing water.  Or, I put mine in a spray bottle and spray my dishes with it and then wash them. It works really well that way, and the spray bottle helps it to last longer.
  • The bottle also lists uses such as –  dentures, deodorant, aftershave, pets, silk, and car.  If you wanted to, you really could use it for just about anything and everything!

I really can’t recommend castile soap enough!  It may be more expensive than regular soap or body wash up front, but because it’s so concentrated, a bottle really lasts a long time.

And because it has so many different uses, you will probably end up saving money by using it, because you eliminate the need to buy multiple different products for different uses.

I have been battling if I should home school my child for a year now.  I was going to start the beginning of the school year but, was talked out of it by another family member:( But, as Christmas was drawing near it was very evident that I needed to follow through with my plan to home school.  What makes me qualified to home school my child I was asked by various people, that saddened me that my others in my life would question my ability to know what is best for my child:(  But I knew he was not exceling and learning the way I would want him to and thought he needed a broader variety of learning.  Thus we have embarked on home schooling.  There are a lot of home school tools out there to help on your journey of home school as well as free sites and free print outs to make things easier and affordable. you can also utilize your local library which is what we are doing.  I have also found a ton of home school blogs to help with tips and support.  One book that we are going through right now is “Home School your Child for Free” by: LauraMaery Gold and Joan M. Zielinski, it has a ton of great advice and websites to help you with homeschool.  There are also sites in the book where you can buy curriculum that you feel fits your childs needs.  I am also utilizing a home school group in my area so my child can attend field trips and meet other home school children.  I hope this helps someone that may be struggling with the decision to home school or not, no one knows your child/children like you so do whats best for you and your child/children.  Below are a few home school mom blogs that you may find helpful:)

Good Luck and until next time God Bless,


I talked about GOOT yesterday and my son-in-law had to use some yesterday on himself and he’s well enough to go back to work today:)  But, there is another remedy I have been using for several years.  It’s called master tonic and it will pretty much kill any germ bacterial or viral.   My daughter was unlucky enough to catch the swine flu and I gave it to her and she was well in 24 hours so it will definitely get you well:)   My family calls it dragon juice because it is spicy but it gets the job done.

Master Tonic


1 part fresh chopped

garlic cloves(antibacterial




1 part fresh chopped

white onions, or the hottest onions available (similar properties to garlic)

1 part fresh grated

ginger root (increases circulation to the extremities)

1 part fresh grated

horseradish root (increases blood flow to the head)

1 part fresh chopped

Cayenne peppers, Jalapenos, Serranos, Habeneros, African bird peppers….any

combination of the hottest peppers available



Fill a glass jar 3/4 of the way full with equal parts of the above fresh chopped and grated herbs.

Then fill to the top with raw unfiltered, unbleached, nondistilled

apple cider vinegar.


Close and shake vigorously and then top off the vinegar if necessary. Begin this formula on the

NEW moon and strain and bottle on the FULL moon, (approximately 14 days). Filter the mixture

through a clean piece of cotton, bottle and label.


Make sure that when you are making this tonic that you shake it every time you walk by it, a

minimum of once per day. Remember that all the herbs and vegetables should be fresh (and

organic if possible), and to use dried herbs only in an emergency.


Strain liquids from solids through muslin cloth or strainer into a 8oz. Glass. Note: the solid ingredients

retain almost the same potency as the liquid ingredients; therefore, these solids can be puréed to use with

other ingredients like honey and lemon to make a salad dressing or to marinate meats of all sorts.

This formula will not spoil

unless mixed with new ingredients.


1/2 to 1 ounce, two or more times daily, gargle and swallow.


Store your tincture in a dark place as light will deteriorate it. You can put the jar in a paper bag for the

brewing and shaking process. “Tinctures last indefinitely, while herbs can lose potency within a year.

Also, tinctures enter your system in seconds, as compared with dry herbs in capsules which have to be

digested first.” Advised Schultz.

This tonic is extremely powerful, because all the ingredients are fresh. Its power should not be

underestimated. This formula is a modern day plague tonic and when added to an incurable

routine I have seen it cure the most chronic conditions and stubborn diseases. It stimulates

maximum blood circulation, while putting the best detoxifying herbs into the blood. This formula

is not just for the sniffles, it has helped to turn around the deadliest diseases.

Here is a youtube video showing the process: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wQbGDmaKZc

I usually just blend the ingredients up one by one in a food processor, which is easier than grating. I then layer in a gallon glass jar and cover with apple cider vinegar leaving a space of about 2 inches in the top…good luck and hope you like it…I actually like the taste:) I also did not start this on a new moon like the instructions say…don’t think it matters. I also used regular jalapeno peppers instead of the hottest I could find.

til next time God Bless and be safe

I had heard of this recipe online and heard that it works wonders when your sick and I know this is the time of year to get sick so I’m sharing this GOOT recipe with you to help you thru those sick days and speed up the healing process:)

You can make GOOT w/out the coconut oil, but I will tell you that using the Virgin Coconut Oil in it makes a huge difference!

You can rub this stuff on the soles of your feet and then put on some socks as well as rubbing up your chest with it like you would a vapor rub.  My son was coughing his head off and had a bit of a fever and I rubbed his chest and feet up with this and he stopped coughing within a  few minutes and didn’t cough the rest of the day or nite…his fever went down as well.

GOOT Garlic Oil Treatment Anti-infective/Anti-fungal/Anti-parasites


You will need:

3Tbs Virgin Coconut Oil 3 Tbs Olive Oil 3 Tbs fresh, chopped garlic

If the coconut oil is not liquid, you will have to warm it until melted. I warm it under hot water, or in the microwave not on the stove. Then you will add three tablespoons of olive oil and mix them together. Next, add three tablespoons of fresh chopped garlic. I usually just throw everything together in the blender..I have a vitamix and it makes it pretty smooth so there is no reason to strain. If you don’t have a blender you could use a food processor or coffee grinder. Pour mixture through a screen to remove chunks of garlic that the blender may have missed. Pour into a wide mouth jar and label it “GOOT.” You will need to store in the  refrigerator.

Freshly made, the mixture is a milky color and runny. GOOT turns into a thick soft paste after one hour. After being in the fridge for several hours, it is just hard like a salve easy to spread.

Don’t worry if your GOOT melts. The oils will not stay hard when warmed. It’s fine. You can use it as the oil or you can put it back in the fridge and cool it again.


GOOT, rubbed into the skin, transfers raw garlic oil directly into the blood stream. Raw garlic is a natural antibiotic that does not carry the bad flora that a Rx antibiotic will put into your intestines.

Apply on the feet of children or infants to fight infections. Rub on chest for chest colds, pneumonia or rub into nostrils for sinus infections. Place on cotton swab for ear infections. Apply directly to sores inside the mouth. Rub on Athlete’s foot or genital area for jock itch. Insert GOOT into affected area for yeast or other related infections. Apply on rashes any place. GOOT kills Candida, parasites, bad bacteria and virus by direct application.

In addition, it treats systemic infections by absorption through the skin into the blood supply and travels throughout the body.  Should last a good while in the fridge, plus coconut oil is anti/bacterial so it would keep it from going bad…I would probably say 6 months is a good time frame and then make a another batch.

I will get into another virus and bacterial remedy tomorrow that takes two weeks to ferment:) Until then be safe and God Bless:)


The Coconut Oil Miracle!!

Posted: November 22, 2011 in Uncategorized

I want to talk about coconut oil….if you are in the paleo or primal movement right now then you know how awesome this oil is:)

“Let me take you to the jungles of northern Brazil, far from civilization. Imagine yourself as a modern-day explorer venturing into the Amazon rain forest fighting pesky mosquitoes and wading through knee-deep swamps. One morning you wake up sweating like an ice cube in the hot July sun. A fever rages out of control, interspersed with brief periods of icy chills. Every muscle in your Body feels like it’s twisted into knots; the strain has sapped your strength, and you lie exhausted, almost too weak to move. With no modern medicine or doctors to help, you seek assistance from the natives. Your health, perhaps even your life, depends on the skill of the tribal medicine man. His treatment consists of a porridge made from coconut. You’re fed this meal everyday. Under the watchful care of the medicine man, you gradually regain your strength, and soon you’re well enough to go on your way.   This story is not beyond belief. The natives in South and Central America regard coconut as both food and medicine. It helps to keep them healthy in a climate infested with malaria, yellow fever, and other tropical diseases. If you go along the coasts of Somalia and Ethiopia in Africa, the locals will give you palm kernel oil if you are sick – a traditional remedy used for almost all ills. Whether you are on an island in the Caribbean, an atoll in the Pacific Ocean, or the coast of Southeast Asia or India, it is likely that the native people would give you coconut in some form as part of your treatment. Wherever the coconut palm grows, the people have learned of it’s value as a source of food and as a medicine. This is why it is hailed as the Tree of Life.

This info and more can be found in the book by Bruce Fife, C.N., N.D.  called “The Coconut Oil Miracle”  Please check it out there is a lot of great info about how coconut oil can help you as well as testimonials.   It also has some recipes in the back of the book but, as some of them use grain (flour, sugar, wheat and wheat noodles) I don’t advocate them. But, the book is worth buying just for all the good info on coconut oil and how you can benefit:)

So get lots of good fat (coconut oil, tallow, lard, REAL butter, and avocados) and you will see a huge difference in your energy levels….til next time be safe:)
