<ul><li>Mankind is plagued by: </li></ul><ul><li>Rapid aging process </li></ul><ul><li>2. Degenerative Diseases: </li></ul><ul><li>Diabetes, Atheroschlerosis, Arthritis, </li></ul><ul><li>Neuritis, Cancer, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>3. Infectious Diseases: </li></ul><ul><li>SARS, AIDS, Hepatitis, Tuberculosis, </li></ul><ul><li>Pneumonia, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>4. Iatrogenic Reactions </li></ul><ul><li>Deaths or diseases induced in a patient by </li></ul><ul><li>a physician's activity, manner, or therapy. </li></ul>
WHY - What Is the cause ? Is it because of lowered resistance? Is it because of rapid tissue degeneration? Is it because of lack of technology? Or, is it because of lack of wisdom? If so, then - why?
<ul><li>1. Do we have to cut down on </li></ul><ul><li>nutritious foods like: </li></ul><ul><li>eggs, milk, dairy products, red meat, etc.? </li></ul><ul><li>Do we need to drastically lower our </li></ul><ul><li>blood cholesterol level? </li></ul><ul><li>3. Do we need to undergo all the modern </li></ul><ul><li>diagnostic procedures and subject </li></ul><ul><li>ourselves to vaccinations and/or </li></ul><ul><li>immunizations prescribed? </li></ul><ul><li>- to spare us from this plague? </li></ul>
Medical advises regarding the use of Pediatric Milk Formula have led to an array of diseases (even degenerative diseases) in children. Commercial formulas are low in saturated fats and soy formulas are devoid of cholesterol. A recent study linked low-fat diets with failure to thrive in children. Pediatrics, Mar 1994, 93:3:438-443 The nonfat milk-based formula was eventually considered too dangerous to continue. Of the various formulas given, the whole cow's-milk formula produced the healthiest infants. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Vol. 31 (1978), p. 1006. Infants on pediatric formulas have lower resistance to enteric pathogens due to low levels of glycoproteins which has shown to be the preferred substrate of some enteric microflora responsible for preventing enteric pathogen colonization. Fedorka-Cray PJ, et al, J Food Prot 1999; 62:1376-1380
<ul><li>Pediatric milk formula containing… </li></ul><ul><li>Soy protein isolate (SPI) which is the key ingredient in </li></ul><ul><li>some baby formulas and soy milk </li></ul><ul><li>- is high in trypsin inhibitors w/c can cause enlargement & </li></ul><ul><li>pathological conditions of the pancreas, including cancer. </li></ul><ul><li>- Phytic acid remaining in these soy products greatly inhibits </li></ul><ul><li>zinc and iron absorption; test animals fed SPI develop </li></ul><ul><li>enlarged organs, particularly the pancreas & thyroid gland, </li></ul><ul><li>and increased deposition of fatty acids in the liver. </li></ul><ul><li>Rackis, Joseph J. et al., "The USDA trypsin inhibitor study - </li></ul><ul><li>Background, objectives and procedural details", Qualification of </li></ul><ul><li>Plant Foods in Human Nutrition , vol. 35, 1985. </li></ul><ul><li>Administration of SPI at 10% in the diet enhanced tumor growth. </li></ul><ul><li>The result of this rat model study, suggests caution in using SPI </li></ul><ul><li>in human studies since it is involved in advanced hormone- </li></ul><ul><li>refractory prostate cancer. </li></ul><ul><li>Prostate 2003 Feb 15;54(3):169-80 </li></ul><ul><li>* SPI usage in lieu of milk or dairy products increases the risk of </li></ul><ul><li>inadequate bone mineralization. </li></ul><ul><li>J Pediatr Gastroenterol Nutr 2000 Mar;30(3):310-3 </li></ul>
Medical advises regarding drastic lowering of Cholesterol has led to higher incidence of cancer, hepatitis, car accidents, myopathies, neuropathies and even depression. Br. Med. J 1994 In contrast to clinical trials using statin drugs, which suggest that cholesterol lowering from high to moderate levels is safe, many, but not all, prospective studies report higher non-atherosclerotic disease rates in people with low serum total cholesterol. ` Am J Epidemiol 2000 Apr 15;151(8):748-51 Low serum cholesterol has been associated with an increased risk of cancer mortality. Am J Epidemiol 2000 Apr 15;151(8):739-47 Association of low plasma cholesterol with mortality for cancer at various sites in men: 17-year follow-up of the prospective Basel study. Am J Clin Nutr 2000 Feb;71(2):569-74
Medical advises regarding eating of Low Fat/High Carbo Diet could actually be counter-productive to health. High intake of rapidly digested & absorbed carbohydrates increases the risk of ischemic heart disease, especially in overweight women prone to insulin resistance. Am J Clin Nutr 2002 Mar;75(3):492-8 Blood tests on men enrolled in diets with aggressive fat restriction revealed a rise in triglyceride levels, along with a drop in levels of HDL cholesterol. Journal of the American Medical Association (1997;278(18):1509-1515) Low-fat/high carbohydrate diets place us at greater risk for heart disease, cancer , and diabetes. F. Jeppesen, et al. Am Jnl Clin Nutr, 1997; 65:1027-1033; S. Francheschi, et al.Inter J Canc, 1997, 72:56-61 G Reaven, et al. Diabetes Care, 1989, 12:94-101
Medical advises regarding the use of various Drugs have been linked with liver damage, Heart failure, kidney damage, stroke, etc. The use of NSAIDs caused a greater than 10-fold increase in the risk of congestive heart failure (CHF) in patients with a history of heart disease. In those without a history of heart disease, the use of NSAIDs still increased the risk by 60%. Archives of Internal Medicine June 2000; 160: 777-784. About 15% of the people on dialysis machine today are there as a result of the damage that aspirin and/or NSAIDS did to their kidneys. New York Times January 29, 2002 People with high levels of the hormone insulin in their blood are also likely to have high levels of homocysteine, a substance that appears to raise the risk of heart disease, stroke, & birth defects, as well as possibly other adverse effects as well. Diabetes Care 2000;23:1348-1352 Beta-blockers are the only blood pressure drugs linked to diabetes. The New England Journal of Medicine 2000
IMMUNIZATION and/or VACCINATION have been linked with brain damage, neuro- logical disorders, lowered IQ, ADD, learning disabilities, and autism. Children die at a rate 8 times greater than normal within three days after getting a DPT vaccination. Am J of Epidemiol, 1992 Diabetes epidemic has been associated with Hepa –B, Small pox, Mumps and other vaccines. Diabetes Care 1997 May; 20(5):767-772. Neurological Complications in Children From Smallpox Vaccination, DPT, measles and other vaccines. Pediatrics 1988 Mar;81(3):345-349. Acute Renal Failure, Skin Complications, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, Epilepsy and mental retardation following febrile seizures in childhood after vaccinations. Acta Paediatr Scand 1989 Mar;78(2):291-295.
Where do we turn now for the answer? Who will deliver us from these diseases plaguing us? God thunders - “My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6)
For we have not listened to Him!!! “ If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you w/c I have brought on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord who heals you .” Exodus 15:26 Is this still applicable to us? “ For I am the Lord, I do not change.” Malachi 3:6 “ Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8
“ I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE” John 14:6 The truth about health can be found in His Words. Yes, the foundation of HEALTH as well as Disease PREVENTION is in “ THE WORD OF GOD”
“ Along the bank of the river, on this side and that will grow all kinds of trees used for food … their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine.” Ezekiel 47:12 “ In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. ” Revelation 22:2
What is it in the leaves that has something to do with healing? Basically the root cause of all diseases is Oxidative Damage , whether it be cancer, heart attack, kidney problem, respiratory, Diseases, etc.
<ul><li>Two ways by which oxygen affects the body: </li></ul><ul><li>Oxygen combines with glucose to provide </li></ul><ul><li>energy for cellular metabolism. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Oxygen can also combine with certain foods </li></ul><ul><li>to cause oxidative damage . </li></ul>
<ul><li>Leaves are excellent for antioxidant defense! </li></ul><ul><li>Phytochemicals: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Carotenoids </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Flavonoids </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Cruciferous </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>

The leaves also contain . . . VITAMINS, MINERALS AND ENZYMES The leaves contain major and minor minerals which act as enzyme co-factors, and vitamin that converts into coenzymes in the body. Both enzyme cofactors and coenzymes are needed for enzymatic repair and synthesis to proceed in the human body.
<ul><li>DIETARY FIBERS </li></ul><ul><li>There are two types of dietary fiber, soluble and insoluble. </li></ul><ul><li>Soluble fiber retains water and turns to gel during digestion. </li></ul><ul><li>* Functions of Soluble Fiber </li></ul><ul><li> - bind with fatty acids </li></ul><ul><li> - prolong stomach emptying time so that sugar is released and </li></ul><ul><li>absorbed more slowly </li></ul><ul><li>* Benefits of Soluble Fiber </li></ul><ul><li> - lower total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol therefore reducing </li></ul><ul><li>the risk of heart disease </li></ul><ul><li> - regulate blood sugar for people with </li></ul>
DIETARY FIBERS 2. Insoluble fiber appears to speed the passage of foods through the stomach and intestines. * Functions of Insoluble Fiber - move bulk through the intestines - control and balance the pH (acidity) in the intestines * Benefits of Insoluble Fiber - promote regular bowel movement and prevent constipation - remove toxic waste through colon in less time - help prevent colon cancer by keeping an optimal pH in intestines to prevent microbes from producing cancerous substances
The leaves also contain . . . BLOOD THINNER and Vitamin K Natural aspirin or salicylate is also present in some leaves. This can prevent blood clotting. But there are those that contain high Vitamin K which is also good for those who are prone to bleeding.
To get the desired effects, oftentimes we need to consume so much quantities of leaves! So, the Lord God transfer the HEALING POWER of the leaves to ruminant animals that grazed on them. These include their meats, fats, eggs and milk. And even honey from honeybees.
What type of meat should we eat? “ These are the animals which you may eat among all the beasts that are on the earth: Among the beasts, whatever divides the hoof, having cloven hooves and chewing the cud - that you may eat.” (Leviticus 11:2-3) Examples are ruminants such as: Sheep, goat, cow, carabao, lamb
What type of meat should we eat? “ These are the animals which you may eat among all the beasts that are on the earth: Among the beasts, whatever divides the hoof, having cloven hooves and chewing the cud - that you may eat.” (Leviticus 11:2-3) Examples are ruminants such as: Sheep, goat, cow, carabao, lamb
What part should be eaten? “… the fat tail and the fat that covers the entrails, the two kidneys and the fat that is on them by the flanks, and the fatty lobe attached to the liver above the kidneys , you shall remove.” Leveticus 7:3-4 “ You shall not eat any fat, of ox or sheep or goat.…” Leviticus 11:2-3 Hard fat (beef tallow or suet) is a repository for pesticide residue, DDT & toxins, certain hormones like DES. Certain fat is allowed like the bone marrow and marbled fat. Isaiah 25:6 “And in this mountain the Lord of host will make for all people a feast of choice pieces … of fat things full of marrow ….”

MILK & DAIRY PRODUCTS “ and that you may prolong your days in the land which the Lord swore to give your fathers, to them and their descendants, a land flowing with milk and honey.” Deuteronomy 11:9 “… Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel. Curds and honey He shall eat, that He may know to refuse the evil and choose the good. ” Isaiah 7:14-15 “ Then the Lord appeared to him by the terebinth tree … And Abraham ran to the herd, took a tender and good calf … So he took butter and milk and the calf which he prepared and set before them; … and they ate . ” Genesis 18:1, 7-8
MILK & DAIRY PRODUCTS are essential for health Isaiah 55:1-2 “Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk …Why do you spend money…And your wages for what does not satisfy… eat what is good.”
MILK (FULL CREAM) * a complete food * an excellent source of vitamins and minerals * a natural tranquilizer (butyric acid in cream converts to GABA) * a component of cell membrane

Short and Medium Chain Saturated Fatty Acids like Butyric Acid C4 (Butterfat) are absorbed with albumin. So, they don’t contribute to build-up and absorption of cholesterol.
“ If your son asks for … an egg, will you [father] offer him a scorpion? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children ….” Luke 11:11-13 All the antioxidant power of leaves are concentrated in the yolk!
EGG * An excellent source of complete protein since it contains all the essential amino acids. * The richest known source of choline, a cholesterol “esterifier”. * Lecithin found in the yolk, aids in fat assimilation and raises HDL levels. * Highest biological value.

Transfer Factors in Milk & Egg: “ Transfer factors are tiny molecules found in colostrum which provide "immune knowledge" from a mother's immune system to her baby used in recognizing and fighting outside threats. By transferring information from cell to cell, transfer factors serve as "teachers" to the new cells, ensuring a strong immune system capable of surviving, even thriving, in its new environment. These molecules were first discovered in the late 40's by Dr. H. Sherwood Lawrence. All mammals produce transfer factor, but scientists prefer to work with chicken and normal bovine colostrum.” Dr. Rob Robertson Director of Emergency Services Western Baptist Hospital in Paducah, KY.

Cream of milk, egg yolk, liver, bone marrow, and even animal fat are all rich in in Choline, Lecithin, and Inositol — all powerful emulsifiers — to open up clogged arteries in the brain, heart, kidney, and legs. Nutrition Almanac
SALT food to taste! Job 6:6-7 (NIV) “Is tasteless food eaten without salt ? Or is there any taste in the white of an egg? I refuse to touch it; such food makes me ill .” * A recent study showed those people who ate the least sodium had the highest risk of a heart attack. Hypertension 25:1144, 1995 * Other studies suggest low-salt diets may raise cholesterol and triglycerides. Am J Hypertens 4:416, 1991; Hypertension 11:743, 1993 RBN:02/01
NOT Iodized SALT! P rolonged use of iodized salt exposes the Population to the risk of thyroid disorders. Zahidi A, Hababa L, Idrissi MO, Taoufik J. Therapie 1999 Sep-Oct;54(5):549-52 A multicenter study was conducted in 7 countries to evaluate whether the occurrence of iodine-induced hyperthyroidism (IIH) after introduction of iodized salt. The conclusion: the risk of iodine-induced hyper thyroidism (IIH) after correction of iodine deficiency is closely related to the recent excessive increment of iodine supply.

“ Medical Science, as it evolves, shall continuously trek on erroneous trail unless and until it jives with the exacting requirements of Biblical Wisdom!” John Immanuel Ambassador for Christ – Ministry of Reconciliation
“ The Doctor of the Future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame in Diet , and in the cause and prevention of disease.” - Thomas A. Edison
Rule #3: ONLY CLEAN FOOD must be eaten “ Nevertheless these you shall not eat among those that chew the cud or those that have cloven hooves….” Examples: flesh of pigs, cat, dogs, camels, rabbits, horse, rat, etc. Isaiah 65:3-4 “A people who provoke Me to anger continually … who eats the flesh of pigs , and whose pots hold broth of unclean meats .” “ The six most common food-borne parasitic diseases of humans are associated with pork consumption. These include toxoplasmosis, taeniasis or cysticercosis and trichinellosis….” Rex Russell, What the Bible Says About Healthy Living ,1999, p. 78-79
Processed Foods like: REFINED SUGAR * Accelerates aging process - promotes production of substances called advance glycation end-products (AGEs), which in turn hasten aging. - increases free radicals in the body which accelerates aging. J of Clin Endoc & Metab., August, 2000 * A dversely affects functions of the body systems by causing changes in blood chemistry & affecting the body’s homeostatic balance - sugar intake is positively correlated with the incidence of candida vulvo-vaginitis. Journal of Reproductive Medicine, 1984 - high sugar intake and low fiber diets - more prone to cancer. Science News, November 10, 1990
Processed Vegetable Oils In test animals, diets high in polyunsaturates from vegetable oils: - inhibit the ability to learn when under stress - are toxic to the liver - compromise the integrity of the immune system - depress the mental and physical growth of infants - increase levels of uric acid in the blood - abnormal fatty acid profiles in the adipose tissues - linked to mental decline and chromosomal damage - accelerate ageing Teter, B. B. et al., Journal of Nutrition 120:818-824, 1990 A general review of citations for problems with polyunsaturate consumption is found in E. R. Pinckney and C. Pinckney, The Cholesterol Controversy , Sherbourne Press, Los Angeles, CA, USA, 1973, pp. 127-131
Trans-fatty Acids (margarine, vegetable Oil and shortening) According to studies, the trans-fat diet reduced blood vessel function by 30% and lowered HDL ("good")-cholesterol levels by about one fifth, compared with the saturated-fat diet. Atherosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology July 2001 RBN:07/01
Vegetable oils are more toxic when heated. * One study reported that polyunsaturates turn to varnish in the intestines. * A study by a plastic surgeon found that women who consumed mostly vegetable oils had far more wrinkles than those who used traditional animal fats. * A 1994 study published in the Lancet showed that almost 3/4 of the fat in artery clogs is unsaturated. * The 'artery-clogging' fats are not animal fats but vegetable oils. Felton, C. V. et al., "Dietary Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids and Composition of Human Aortic Plaques", Lancet 344:1195, 1994 RBN:07/01
TRANS FATTY & UNSATURATED FATS Swine fed trans fatty acids developed higher parameters for heart disease than those fed saturated fats, especially when trans fatty acids were combined with added polyunsaturates. Elson, C. E. et al., "The Influence of Dietary Unsaturated Cis and Trans and Saturated Fatty Acids on Tissue Lipids of Swine", Atherosclerosis 40:115-137, 1981 The u se of polyunsaturated oils caused an increase in breast tumours . And way back in 1969, the use of corn oil was discovered to cause an increase in atherosclerosis . Kritchevsky, D., Medical Counterpoint, March 1969
Trans fatty acid (margarine and shortening) A long prospective study by researchers at Harvard University involving 85,000 women. Individuals who developed heart disease are those who have high intake of trans fatty acids. Mary G. Enig, Ph.D in Nutrition Contributing Editor, “Clinical Nutrition” 50 % higher risk of CHD in women Willett, et al. Intake of trans fatty acid… Lancet 1993; 341:581
SATURATED FAT like margarine, compound butter, etc. Risk of heart attack increased by: N = 80,082 nurses Saturated fat (long chain) and Trans- fatty acid(margarine/shortening) - 53% not by butter (short chain saturated fat) New England Journal of Medicine, Nov. 1997 RBN:08/99
Trans fatty acid(margarine and shortening) A study focusing on the cardiac risk of several types of fat: saturated fat, trans unsaturated fat (the "hardened" fat in margarine and fast foods), mono- unsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats. Trans unsaturated fats has the highest risk -- 93% Polyunsaturated fats (corn and soybean) -- 38% Monounsaturated fats (olive and canola) -- 19% D ietary saturated fat (meats and dairy foods) -- 17% The New England Journal of Medicine ( November 20, 1997;337:1491-1499) RBN:07/01
Rule #3: ONLY CLEAN FOOD must be eaten “ And these you regard as an abomination among the birds; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: The eagle, the vulture, the buzzard, the kite, the falcon, the raven, the ostrich, owls, seagull, hawks, storks, heron...the bat.” (Leviticus 11:13-19) Clean meat is high in protein , essential amino acids, B-complex vitamins, omega-3 fatty acid; lowest in omega- 6 fatty acid. Unclean meat like pork is high in omega-6 fatty acid; carrier of viruses and parasites like tapeworm, trichinella, etc. Certain flu virus which are non-virulent can become virulent when combined with a bird virus in the pork flesh. Ex. Hongkong flu virus. RBN:02/01
Rule #3: ONLY CLEAN FOOD must be eaten “ Whatever in the water does not have fins and scales – that shall be an abomination to you.” (Leviticus 11:12) Leviticus 11:9-10 says, “These you may eat of all that are in the water; Whatever in the water that has fins and scales, whether in the seas or in the rivers – that you may eat. But all in the seas or in the rivers that do not have fins and scales, all that move in the water or any living thing which is in the water, they are detestable.” Examples of this are: catfish, puffer fish, stingray, eel, swordfish, crabs, lobsters, frogs, clams, shark, squid These fish are usually high in toxins and other contaminants.
