How, you ask? By simply addressing the roots of your life, health and relationship issues. That's what this Web site is about. It's about helping Christians live the abundant life you're entitled to. Because hurting people continue to hurt people, this site provides resources, services and products for Healed People to Heal People.

Life If you address the symptoms of your life, health and relationship issues, they will continue. That's why we prefer to identify the roots, then dismantle them according to biblical principles. Then, the symptoms will eventually go away.

Health Do you know one of the most preferred ways to distract a person? It is to inflict pain, illness or addictions in your physical body. This includes mental illnesses. That's why you’ll find information and products about health, the human body and what the Bible has to say about disease and illness on this site. Inclusive is life-changing information about the biblical roots of disease and illness. Be In Health Global owns this information and is gracious enough to allow it to be shared on this site.

Relationships My goodness, every day we have the opportunity to improve our relationships. The question is do we have the desire, the mental capacity and the willingness to give it another try. The other question is since what we've tried hasn't worked to improve our relationships, what should we do differently? Might we suggest learning how to identify the roots behind the issue -- that is what you can't see with the natural eye.

How We at Healed People, Heal People facilitate the healing process by offering personal ministry, group ministry, consulting, educational teachings and training. Our training was at Restoring The Foundations International, Be In Health Global and Pure Herbs Ltd.

Roots How do we identify the roots of life, health or relationship issues? First, we asses what happened generationally in your life and family; this contributes to your issue. Second, we present what you really believe about yourself, what you really believe about others and what you really believe about God that does not align with the truth of the Bible; this contributes to your issue. And please know that most people rarely know what beliefs they operate out of daily that is contributing to them being trapped in the same life, health and relationship issues. Next, you need to receive healing for who and what has caused pain in your life; this keeps your issue in place.

Joy We've had the privilege of seeing the Holy Spirit positively change lives on every continent using simple, biblical healing and deliverance. Be encouraged to browse the site to participate in the forums, listen to healing music or consider supporting this marketplace ministry. Your life, health, and relationships and can change for the better!

    Apostle Of Hate — Minister Of Healing By Melanie Hemry

    Eagle Mountain International Church, Incorporated, aka Kenneth Copeland Ministries

    "Is this Johnny Lee Clary?" A voice asked on the other end of the phone.

    "Yes ..."

    "The Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan for Oklahoma?"

    "That's right."

    "Mr. Clary, I'm calling on behalf of a local radio station. We would like to invite you here to the station next Sunday evening for an interview. The program will be live. During that time, we would allow you to read your literature and share your views openly."

    Share my views on the radio? There's no telling how many new kids I can recruit! Johnny leaned back in his chair and propped up his feet.

    "I'd be most honored to be your guest," he answered, a slow smile spreading across his face. Unlike most Klan members, Johnny Lee didn't shun publicity. He hadn't even minded when television cameras followed him around to schools in the Oklahoma City area, where he recruited kids. The way he looked at it, a man ought to stand up for the truth. And one thing Johnny Lee Clary knew for certain - the Ku Klux Klan stood for the truth.

    Seeds of Hatred

    His own education in that "truth" began early. He'd been only 5 when he looked out the car window in amazement. "Look, Daddy!" he'd said. "There's a chocolate-covered man!"

    His daddy blew cigar smoke out the window in disgust. "That's not a chocolate-covered man," he said. "That's a n-----. Can you say, 'n-----'?"

    Johnny Lee had leaned out the window and shouted, "N-----!" His daddy laughed and patted him on the back.

    Johnny Lee's training continued when his Uncle Harold would visit from Georgia and tell his stories about the KKK. "I shot a black man for crossing my property," he once bragged to Johnny Lee's father. "The police didn't care that I shot him. But they did fine me for firing a gun in the city limits!" The two men laughed until their faces were red.

    Johnny Lee's dad wasn't a member of the Klan. He couldn't be. He was Catholic. One group the Klan hated almost as much as blacks and Jews was Catholics. Johnny's daddy never attended Mass, but he made sure that Johnny Lee was on the Sunday school bus every week to the First Baptist Church.

    That is, until the day Johnny Lee leaned out the bus window and screamed, "N-----!" to a black child on the street. That day, Johnny Lee's Sunday school teacher pulled him aside and taught him a song. At home, he proudly sang it for his father.

    "Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world. Red and yellow, black and white ..."

    Johnny Lee's daddy never let him go back to that church. He found one closer to home -- an all-white church.

    Everyone in their neighborhood hated Johnny Lee's family. The neighbors considered them white trash. Of course, nobody dared call them that. They were afraid to.

    The Clary family's popularity took a sudden turn, however, when a black family bought a house in the neighborhood. The whole neighborhood came to Johnny Lee's daddy and asked him to help them get rid of the family. They were willing to buy them out, if they'd leave.

    Unfortunately, the neighbors' sudden acceptance of the Clarys didn't make Johnny Lee's family any happier. His parents fought constantly. Their marriage ended tragically when, one night, 11-year-old Johnny Lee walked into a room to see his daddy holding a gun to his head. "Daddy, don't!" he screamed, then watched as his daddy shot himself to death.

    After the funeral, Johnny Lee went to live with his older sister in California. But he wasn't happy there. As the months passed, Johnny Lee became more and more lonely. That's when he saw a talk show host interviewing David Duke, the Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. Remembering his Uncle Harold, Johnny Lee decided to contact the Klan. Within a few weeks, a man knocked at his door.

    "I'm a friend of David Duke," he said. The man sat down and talked to Johnny Lee. "What do you like? Tell me about your life."

    Johnny Lee was in awe. Someone wants to hear what I have to say!

    "Son, you've had a hard, horrible life," the man said. "What you need is a family. A real family. That's what the Ku Klux Klan is -- a fraternal order. That means family."

    Week after week, the man took Johnny Lee to his house for meetings. It was almost as if he had a father again. Between meetings, Johnny studied about the Klan. He was amazed to learn what prominent people were former Klansmen, including at least three U.S. presidents.

    Johnny Lee trembled with excitement the day he joined the KKK. He was 14 years old. By age 20, Johnny Lee had worked his way up in the organization, first serving as Duke's bodyguard and later, becoming the Grand Dragon of Oklahoma.

    "It was 1979 when I was invited to do the radio interview," Johnny Lee recalls. "I was so excited, I told everyone to tune in. Then, a few days before the interview, I was listening to the radio when they announced the upcoming debate between myself and the state president of the NAACP, the Rev. Wade Watts!

    "I'd never actually met a black man. But I knew what to expect: A man in African robes sporting a huge Afro, a button that said, 'I hate white people,' and a sign, 'Black is beautiful.'

    "I wasn't prepared for a nicely dressed, older black man carrying a worn Bible."

    On the day of the debate, Rev. Watts walked up to Johnny Lee -- his hand outstretched. "Hello, Mr. Clary. I just want to tell you I love you, and Jesus loves you."

    Stunned, Johnny Lee shook the man's hand without thinking. The physical touch of a Negro is pollution, he thought.

    "Don't worry, son," Rev. Watts said with a grin. "It doesn't rub off."

    He has a sense of humor ...?

    "Why do you feel the two races shouldn't mingle?" the interviewer asked Johnny Lee as the debate began. "Because Christ ordered it," he explained.

    "Son," Rev. Watts interrupted, "where did you get that idea?"

    The only Bible verses Johnny Lee knew were the ones outlined in the KKK literature. Speaking slowly, Johnny Lee quoted, "What fellowship hath light with darkness...."

    Rev. Watts explained that the scripture was referring to the believer and the nonbeliever, and to sin and righteousness. Then he asked Johnny Lee, "What color skin do you think an Ethiopian has?"

    "Black as the ace of spades," Johnny responded.

    "I'm glad you said that," Rev. Watts answered. "If you'll look in Numbers 12, you'll see that Moses married an Ethiopian woman. His sister, Miriam, didn't like it either. She talked against Moses and was struck with a horrible disease." He paused for a moment. "You can imagine what is going to happen to you."

    Johnny Lee shifted uncomfortably in his chair. This wasn't turning out the way he expected. "Look here," he said, "white people are smarter than black people."

    "How do you figure that?" Rev. Watts asked. Johnny Lee told him about an intelligence test that proved white children were smarter than black children.

    "What color were the men who came up with that test?" Rev. Watts asked.

    "It doesn't matter what color they were!" Johnny declared.

    "Well, then," said Rev. Watts, "if it doesn't matter, I'll give you a test right now, and we'll see if you can pass it."

    "If you think you're so smart, go ahead."

    "How long is the average cockroach?" Rev. Watts asked Johnny Lee. "Do roaches walk, or do they fly? How long does it take a mess of chitlins to cook? What are chitlins?"

    "Rev. Watts, you rigged that test," Johnny Lee fumed. "White folks aren't supposed to know that stuff."

    "Mr. Clary, now you're getting my point."

    Johnny Lee had to do something to get control of the interview. "Look," he said, trying to stay calm, "Thomas Jefferson helped pen our Constitution, and he said emphatically that the two races should never mix."

    "I'm impressed that you know so much about our forefathers, Mr. Clary. Does the name Sally Hemmings mean anything to you?"

    "No."

    "She was Thomas Jefferson's mistress," Rev. Watts said. "They had seven children. She was his personal property. His slave. She was as black as the ace of spades."

    "I'm not going to stay here and listen to any more of this!" Johnny fumed, storming out of the room.

    Johnny Lee was surprised later when he saw Rev. Watts holding a baby girl. Lifting up the child, Rev. Watts said to Johnny Lee, "This baby's parents were teenagers. Her mother was white and her daddy was black. The boy's family said they wouldn't have a white child in their home, and the girl's family said they wouldn't have a black child in their home. So I adopted her. Tia is my baby now. Mr. Clary, how can you hate this baby?"

    Johnny Lee turned to leave.

    "You can't do enough to make me hate you," Rev. Watts said to Johnny Lee. "I'm going to love you and pray for you, whether you like it or not."

    A short time later, Rev. Watts' church was burned. His family was plagued with vicious, hate-filled phone calls, and often found notes ..."KKK is watching you."

    "During the next 10 years, I gained more and more power in the Klan," Johnny Lee remembers. "Yet during those years, we never stopped persecuting Rev. Watts. The only thing that bothered me was a recurring dream I had of that baby girl. She was beautiful. And she was the only seed of doubt in my life. Somehow, it didn't seem right to hate her. It didn't seem right for her to die. But I knew the Klan's final solution included extermination of the race -- including babies.

    "I didn't let that seed of doubt hinder my work, though. When Rev. Watts joined ranks with an Oklahoma senator to make the Klan's racist hot lines illegal, my blood was boiling."

    Johnny Lee called Rev. Watts. "I know you're behind this," he said. "We're coming to get you, and we're going to beat you ..."

    "Hello, Johnny Lee! How's the family?"

    "I said we're coming for you!"

    "You don't have to come for me, I'll meet you. How about Pete's Place out on Highway 270?"

    "Uh ..."

    "Johnny Lee, they have the best home cooking you ever tasted. And apple pie that'll make you cry for more. Iced tea in those Mason jars. I can taste it now."

    "Did you hear what I said?" Johnny Lee demanded. "We're going to beat you!"

    "You be sure and bring all the boys..."

    "I said we're going to beat you!"

    "I heard you, and that's just fine. But first, I want to buy you boys dinner. Did I tell you about their potatoes?"

    Johnny Lee hung up. "What did he say?" the Klan members asked.

    "He talked about home cooking, apple pie and iced tea. Said he wanted to buy our dinner."

    "That old man's gone pure crazy," someone said. "Let's leave him alone."

    And they did.

    "During the months that followed, a girl I had dated challenged me to go to church," Johnny Lee recalls. "I decided to take her up on it, so I called an elder at Crossroads Cathedral in Oklahoma City. He met with me, and led me to the Lord. I asked Jesus into my life and received the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. A month later, someone asked me to speak at a Full Gospel Businessmen's Fellowship. I hadn't even broken ties with the Klan.

    "Soon, word of my salvation reached the media, and a local newspaper asked for an interview. I gave it, and the next thing I knew I got a phone call from the Klan. I broke into a cold sweat when they said they were coming after me. I was scared."

    "What are you doing, Clary?" they asked when they arrived.

    Frightened for his life, Johnny Lee turned his back on God and the Church, and begged forgiveness from the Klan. He was given a second chance.

    In 1989, Johnny Lee was appointed Imperial Wizard of the KKK.

    "I wanted to unify all the hate groups - the different factions of the Klan, the Skinheads, the Patriots, the Neo-Nazis, the Militias, the Populists and the Aryan Nations - under one common organization," Johnny Lee recalled.

    He spent months arranging a national meeting of all the white supremacist groups. Finally, all the players were in place.

    What Johnny Lee didn't know, however, was that the FBI had tapped his phone and knew his plan. They arrested him on his way to the meeting.

    Without his presence, the meeting fell apart. By the time Johnny Lee was released and arrived at the rally site, the different factions were fighting among themselves.

    Johnny Lee surveyed the scene in disgust. I gave up my wife and child for these people. I gave up my life for this organization, and all they want to do is kill one another.

    On his return home, Johnny Lee faced staggering legal battles and attorney fees. He was also disillusioned.

    Where was the loyalty? he wondered. What happened to brotherhood? Wasn't the Klan supposed to be family?

    Soon afterward, Johnny Lee resigned as Imperial Wizard, and walked away from the Klan. He took a good look at himself, and didn't like what he saw.

    "I'd hit an all-time low in my life," Johnny Lee recalled. "Whenever I applied for a job, people just laughed."

    As the months passed, Johnny Lee became more and more despondent.

    Then he had a thought: Daddy escaped it all. I could go be with my dad, then I wouldn't have to worry about some Klansman putting a bullet in me.

    Johnny Lee loaded his gun and put the barrel to his head.

    The afternoon sun filtered through the closed blinds, casting tiny lines of light onto a Bible that lay gathering dust.

    The only happiness, the only peace in my life, were those few months at Crossroads Cathedral, Johnny Lee thought. But now, it's too late for me ... The dusty Bible caught Johnny Lee's eye. He put down the gun, and picked up the Bible. It fell open to Luke 15 -- the story of the prodigal son.

    Johnny Lee read the story once, then again, then a third time.

    "I know what You're trying to tell me, God," he said, weeping. "That younger son turned his back on his father and wasted his life. But when he came home, the father welcomed him. You're telling me I can come home.

    "God, I have no one else to turn to except You. I ask You to forgive me for the way I lived ... for all the hatred. Please, come into my heart, Jesus, and change me."

    In the space of a heartbeat, the weight of years of hatred melted off Johnny Lee Clary. Weeping openly, he raised his hands and worshiped God. Then he picked up the Bible and read for hours.

    "I was living in Tulsa, Oklahoma, too far to drive to Crossroads Cathedral," Johnny Lee recalls. "I visited a few churches, and although I enjoyed them very much, I knew none of them was where I was supposed to be. Each one had an all-white congregation. I knew God would never allow me to join an all-white church.

    "That week, I saw an ad in the newspaper, 'Victory Christian Center - A Church For All Races.' The next Sunday, I walked into that church and knew it was right. There were blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Filipinos, every race seemed to be represented."

    Johnny Lee joined the church.

    "This time, I didn't tell anyone who I was. Eventually, someone recognized me, and I wrote a letter to the pastor, Billy Joe Daugherty, explaining that I'd been the Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. He wrote back, encouraging me to spend time getting grounded in God's Word.

    "God helped me get a job and, for the first time since 1982, I was happy. In addition to listening to the Word at church, I was introduced to the teaching of Kenneth and Gloria Copeland. I tuned in to their Believer's Voice of Victory program, bought their tapes and learned about faith.

    "In 1991, during one of Pastor Billy Joe's sermons, the Lord called me to preach. Billy Joe's wife, Sharon, walked over to me and announced, 'God didn't save you for you to sit in Tulsa. He's commanded you to go into the world and get people saved.' "A few weeks later, Johnny Lee heard the Lord again. Call Rev. Watts.

    He did.

    "Hello, Johnny Lee," Rev. Watts said warmly.

    "Rev. Watts, I wanted you to know that I resigned from the KKK in 1989. I gave my heart to Jesus, and I'm a member of Victory Christian Center, an interracial church. My mind is being renewed, and God has called me to preach."

    "Well, praise the Lord, son!" Rev. Watts said. "Would you do me the honor of speaking at my all-black church?"

    Johnny Lee choked back the tears. "I'd love to."

    When Johnny Lee arrived to speak at Rev. Watts' church, there were cameras and news reporters everywhere. Once inside, Johnny Lee Clary stepped up to the podium and looked out over the sea of black faces. He saw people made in the image of God, souls that Jesus had died to save. The contempt he once felt had been replaced with a love so great, so powerful, that his knees felt weak.

    This, he realized, is what real unity is all about. It was not what he had tried to do through the KKK. Real unity is only possible through love.

    Johnny Lee told his story, and what Jesus had done for him. Afterward, a teenage girl ran down the aisle. "I want to know the same Jesus you know," she said.

    As the altar filled with people wanting to know Johnny Lee's Jesus, he heard Rev. Watts weeping.

    "Do you know who that is?" Watts asked, pointing at the young girl Johnny Lee had just led to the Lord.

    "No," Johnny Lee answered.

    "That's Tia," Rev. Watts said. "She's the baby I shoved in your face that day at the radio station!"

    Johnny Lee turned to look at the beautiful face beaming at him. She was the baby he couldn't hate.

    Rev. Watts and his wife had 13 children. Nine of them had given their lives to Jesus. In the throng of people who crowded the altar that night, Johnny Lee was privileged to introduce the other four to the Lord Jesus.

    After the service, Rev. Watts and Johnny Lee embraced. An elderly black pastor wrapped his arms around a young, white, former Klansman. They both wept.

    "All those years I prayed for you!" Watts said. "I never dreamed that God would use you to bring my own children into the kingdom!"

    It's been more than six years now since Johnny Lee preached at Rev. Watts' church, and many things have changed. But both men still work untiringly - to spread the gospel and promote racial reconciliation.

    Today, Johnny Lee Clary's greatest thrill in ministry occurs when he ministers alongside Rev. Wade Watts. His second greatest thrill is being a godfather to young Tia Watts.

    Johnny Lee Clary stands amazed that one man - the man he persecuted - prayed him out of hell on earth and into heaven for eternity. Before, that kind of love was unfathomable to Johnny Lee. Now, it is a way of life.

    Pastor Johnny Lee Clary's Testimony

    Johnny Lee Clary learned to hate at a very young age. He was raised in a family filled with racism, anger, and bigotry. As a young teenager, after his father committed suicide and his mother abandoned him, Johnny found himself alone and looking for someplace to belong. At 14, he was seduced by the teachings of the notorious David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan, and he joined the organization.

    As an impressionable young man, Johnny became so enthralled with the sense of belonging and a need for “family” that he participated in KKK events as a security enforcer. His exuberance and dedication led to him being appointed as David Duke’s personal bodyguard.

    Johnny continued to advance in the organization, reveling in the feeling of finally fitting in. He went on to spend nearly 17 years in the Klan, as State Organizer and Public Relations spokesman for Imperial Wizard Bill Wilkinson of the Invisible Empire Knights of the Ku Klux Klan; then becoming Grand Dragon of the National Knights of the KKK; then Heartland Director and right-hand man to White Aryan Resistance leader Tom Metzger (by all accounts, one of the most violent men ever to preach hatred); and finally, to becoming one of the most nefarious national Klan leaders in America after being elected to the very top: Imperial Wizard (national head) of the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, a branch that originated in Mississippi and was considered to be the most dreaded Klan faction in history (and widely acknowledged by law enforcement as the most violent and militant of all the Klan), taking responsibility for bombings, murders, and countless other crimes—all in the name of hatred and racism. To this day, the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan are considered the real Ku Klux Klan.

    As the Klan’s national leader, during many appearances on such television programs as The Oprah Winfrey Show, the Morton Downey, Jr. Show, and many others, Johnny advocated, supported, and defended racism and violence.

    But then, the destructive mindset and lifestyle he had lived for so many years began to take its toll. Riddled with torment, angered over a false arrest in Tennessee on a weapons charge, disgusted with internal bickering between the various white supremacist organizations, and the discovery that his girlfriend was an informant for the FBI, Johnny Lee left the Klan.

    But life does not always repair so easily. Over the next few years he found himself derailed by issues related to his alledged daughter, two divorces, losing all of his friends, the FBI doubting his exit from the Klan, and struggling just to make an honest living. These challenges, combined with his feelings of guilt over the life of violence, prejudice, and hatred he had lived for so long, led Johnny to alcohol.

    On the verge of committing suicide one night, he cried out to God to deliver him from his nightmarish existence. And God answered. From that point on, Johnny Lee used his life, his experiences, and his near destruction to help others leave the same evil path that he had walked for so long.

    In 1995 Johnny was appointed by Roy Ennis to serve as West Coast Director National Director for the Congress Of Racial Equality. Since then, he has spoken at innumerable Universities, High Schools and churches, and has been a featured speaker for Youth Alive and Teen Challenge. He lectures for the FBI and other law enforcement agencies, educating officers on the mindset of white supremacists and how to best fight against domestic terrorism.

    As a renowned international speaker, he has set records for the largest crowds of any motivational lecturer in Australia other than Billy Graham, with literally thousands receiving his message of hope, healing and forgiveness for racism, low self-esteem, suicidal tendencies, and substance abuse.

    Johnny Lee Clary resides with his wife Melissa in Miami, Oklahoma. He has appeared on the Billy Graham Radio Show, on the television programs including:

    Geraldo Rivera
    Fox News
    Alan Colmes
    Sally Jesse Raphael
    Jerry Springer
    Rikki Lake
    Queen Latifah
    Montel Williams
    Phil Donahue

    ABC World News Tonight
    Bertrice Berry
    The Today Show
    A Current Affair
    The 700 Club
    CNBC The Big Idea w/ Donny Deutsch

    He has also been a regular guest on TBN’s Praise The Lord show and has been featured in America’s top newspapers and magazines, including a seven page feature story in Charisma magazine in April 1999, Moody Magazine, GuidePost Magazine [September 1998], Kenneth Copeland's Believer's Voice of Victory magazine, as well as appearances on TV programs in Australia, England, Holland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Sweden, and Wales.

    Customer testimonial no. 1 for Joint Helper

    Have you ever had your lower back go out? Mine did. I was just bending over watering the flowers. I felt a snap and then I couldn't walk right or stand without pain. This had never happened to me before. I started sweating from panic and then anger that my body had somehow betrayed me. Then I felt very alone and helpless. Was I going to be like this from now on? A thousand things went through my mind in hurry.

    None of them good. In sheer desperation I remembered the sample of Joint Helper that had just been given to me. Somehow I got into the house and got the Joint Helper and put a lot of the roll-on down my lower spine and then from side to side over the back of my hips. First it felt soothing, then cooling, then the heat and tingling kicked in.

    In a short while I could walk again without pain. I couldn't believe it! The Joint Helper keep working on and off for hours. For the next three days or so every time I needed the Joint Helper, I used it until I didn't need it anymore. Now I carry it with me just in case.

    CA.-W | 7th Arthritis Herb

    This calcium combination herb is the vital link in the chain of nutrients required for a healthy body with calm nerves and strong bones. Without it a person may experience cold sweats, teeth that hurt, pounding or irregular heart beat, ringing in the ears, muscle cramps, bones that become like lace [porous] and crumble. Press the tip of the breast bone at the bottom where the ribs come together and see if it hurts.

    If so, you can be assured you lack Calcium. The more sensitive, the greater the problem. Do not despair. Nature has provided the rescuer. Bones were not meant to become weaker with age. Every year an animal lives in the wild, eating its normal diet, its bones become stronger.

    Did you ever see a cow or a deer with arthritis? Cows and deer have incredibly strong bones to support great weight or take the pounding of swift flight from danger or the sheer pleasure of freedom that comes to those that can tirelessly run like the wind. calcium, for them, comes from plants. Now you can have that calcium too -- without having to chew all day to get it.

    Horsetail and oat straw are included in this combination for the unusual properties of containing an element named silicon rather than calcium. It is not supposed to be possible, according to scientists, to change one element to another without a thermonuclear explosion, but some body types can, apparently, change one element into another, as in the case of changing silicon into calcium.

    Experiments run with chickens, where all the dietary intake of calcium was carefully monitored and measured, even the calcium in their drinking water, showed increased eggshell production and increased bone density when silicon was added to their diet. They did not get enough calcium to do that. That is not possible, but then the chickens did not know that.

    Perhaps there was something about a goose that laid a golden egg. At any rate, some people who have difficulty assimilating enough calcium to repair a broken leg, do get the that broken leg fixed with calcium filling in the break by taking an herbal Silicon source. CA.-W provides dietary calcium and silicon from active vegetables sources.

    Combination | horsetail, oat straw, knitbone, dulse, dandelion leaf, red raspberry leaf, indian tobacco

    Dose | 20 to 40 drops, 3 times per day. In a broken bone or if severely deficient, then 80 drops, 3 times per day

    Chuchuhuasi | 9th Arthritis Herb

    Chuchuhuasi apparently works on the actual cause of arthritis and, in this manner, restores joints to working order. This is the South American Indian name for the rain forest tree known botanically as Maytenus macrocarpa. Its home is the steamy jungles of Peru, where it is well known and used by the people, especially in and around Iquitos, Peru on the Amazon river.

    Because of the remoteness of this area, its use was unknown to the rest of the world until recent times. Yet, it is now, perhaps, the most popularly used rain forest herb in Peru. Life in a jungle environment means dealing with infections, bites and diseases of many kinds. Remedies must be found and used.

    Chuchuhuasi serves this multi-purpose function, and it is commonly taken in the liquid extract form. Among Chuchuhuasi's strongest properties is the building of immunity and, at the same time, enhancing sexual activity and function. The ability of Chuchuhuasi to do this has attracted strong scientific interest.

    This is accomplished by using the root bark as a liquid and taking orally three times per day. Rather than just working on the relief of symptoms, Chuchuhuasi apparently works on the actual cause of arthritis and, in this manner, restores joints to working order.

    This, of course, has aroused considerable excitement in the scientific community. The same can be said regarding Chuchuhuasi's anti-tumor properties. The United States Department of Agriculture has isolated the alkaloid [active bitter compound] maytansine as being most prominent in the compounds believed to be active in the shrinkage of tumors. As if all this would not be enough to recommend the daily use of Chuchuhuasi, it is also applied to the skin to repel jungle mosquitos.

    Now, the mosquitos of the Peruvian jungle are rumored, by the local inhabitants, for the benefit of tourists, to be, So large you can hear them when they walk, and Senior, they may even possess backbones!

    At any rate, accounts of their ferocity are legendary and Chuchuhuasi undoubtedly a welcome remedy.

    Dose | 40 to 80 drops 3 times per day as maintenance. 1 tsp. 3 times per day for more serious cases. Externally as given above.

    Una De Gato | 10th Arthritis Herb

    Una De Gato is a Spanish named herb pronounced [oon-yuh-day-got-toe] that means claw-of-cat or, as we would say in English, cat's claw. In the remote area of Iquitos, Peru, where Una de Gato is at home, it is very widely used and depended upon to handle a wide variety of problems, including those of a serious nature. Here is what is listed in Peru as the traditional and accepted South American Native Folk Medicinal uses of Una de Gato.

    Una De Gato can be taken to correct arthritis, rheumatism, cancer, gastritis, irregularities of the female cycle. From all reports, this is one of the South American Indians' very best arthritis remedies. Although it is not scientifically accepted, people there use it and get rid of their arthritis, including the type we call rheumatoid arthritis, where the body is actually fighting itself.

    Una de Gato is also, especially, noted for its anti-viral properties, tumor dissolving properties, its effects on cellular regeneration and cardiovascular repair. As in all jungle areas, one of the things which must be guarded against is infections.

    Una de Gato is a potent immune system builder. This is especially important in conditions described as rheumatoid arthritis and or osteoarthritis, where the body is attacking itself, commonly called auto-immune reactions. Una de Gato reestablishes the proper immune system orientation for cells that are true friends and those that are the actual foes. A strong immune system is essential to reversing the effects, and prevention, of any kind of disease.

    Hence, a wide range of disorders are reported to be corrected by the use of Una de Gato in Peru and Europe. Very well documented South American medical information shows Una de Gato to be nearly miraculous in combating cancer, even in advanced stages, where as much as 10% of body cells are in a state of metastasis. Because of the shared reputation Una de Gato has earned for itself, no immune problem or cancer is regarded, in Peru, as incurable.

    Dose | 40 drops, 3 times per day to maintain immunity. For disease conditions listed above, 1 tsp. to 1 tbl. 3 times per day. With the use of Una de Gato, as with any herb that destroys bad cells [cancer], do use a good bowel management program which produces two, and preferably three, easy and complete bowel movements per day.

    In this manner, the wastes and poisons the body is getting rid of, can be eliminated from the body and nausea is prevented. This allows the body to clean itself up and to get well. Common sense and good sense, both, demand that you eliminate anything from the diet and the environment which is a poison.

    A good place to start, regarding what you eat, is any food with any kind of chemical additives such as: chemical dyes, preservatives, flavor magnifiers, stabilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and the like. Eliminate junk foods -- and you do know what those are.

  • birthcontrolpills

    Do you take prescription meds? Does someone you love take prescription meds? Did you know prescription meds is the number three cause of death in America according to the Journal of American Medicine?

    Are birth control pills safe? Any drug that artificially manipulates the natural hormonal activity of the body will have negative implications and side effects.

    What is the birth control pill? How Does it work? Is it Safe?
    by Paul Weckenbrock, R. Ph.

    The birth control pill is any drug which uses artificial hormones to keep a woman from getting pregnant or from staying pregnant by interfering with her normal fertility.

    Are all forms of the pill the same?

    No. There are several types of the pill on the market, but they basically break down into two groups: combination pills and the progestin-only minipill.

    The combination type contain two artificial steroids that mimic the effects of naturally occurring hormones, estrogen and progesterone. Some pills work in a monophasic way, keeping the dosage of hormones the same throughout the pill cycle. Others work in a biphasic or triphasic manner which alters the dosage of artificial hormones two or three times respectively through the cycle of pills, attempting to produce fluctuations similar to what a fertile woman would undergo naturally.

    The progestin-only minipill uses only one artificial hormone, progestin, which is a steroid that has a progestational effect similar to natural progesterone.

    How does the pill work?

    The pill is designed to interfere with several normal functions of fertility in order to make a woman 1) unable to conceive due to temporary sterility or sperm immobility, and/or 2) unable to carry a pregnancy to term [an early abortion].

    This process can be accomplished in various ways.

    Suppressing ovulation: When a woman ovulates, hormones released from the pituitary , a gland located at the base of the brain, stimulate her ovaries to ripen and release an egg. The combination pill usually interrupts the release of these pituitary hormones resulting in no egg being released from the ovary, thus preventing pregnancy from occurring. With no egg available for fertilization, the woman is chemically sterile. The progestin-only pill, however, has a weaker effect. It generally does not suppress ovulation.

    1. Inhibiting Implantation: Another important aspect of fertility is the process by which the lining of the uterus is replenished and maintained. After an egg is fertilized, it normally implants in this lining [endometrium], drawing nourishment and sustenance. The progestin component of the combination pill and the progestin-only minipill cause the inner lining of the uterus to become thin and shriveled, unable to support implantation of the embryo [newly fertilized egg].

    2. Impeding Sperm Migration: Preceding ovulation, a woman’s cervix produces a watery mucus through which sperm swim to meet the egg. The mucus also provides nourishment to sustain the life of the sperm cells. This mucus thickens under the influence of a progestin and so impedes sperm migration.

    3.There are two other factors in a woman’s fertility that may be affected by the pill.

    Making changes in the Fallopian Tubes: Progestins lower the efficiency with which the fallopian tubes propel eggs from the ovaries toward the uterus. This can cause the embryo not to reach the uterus in time to implant successfully.

    4. Stopping a Pregnancy: After an ovary releases an egg, the woman’s cycle is controlled by a gland that is formed from the now-empty egg sack, the corpus luteum; this normally functions long enough to give an embryo time to implant in the uterus and for the placenta to begin to support the pregnancy.

    However, hormones from the pill can cause the corpus luteum to function inadequately, allowing the lining of the uterus to be shed before the embryo can successfully implant.

    In summary, a woman’s natural fertility requires several systems and organs to coordinate smoothly. The synthetic chemicals in any type of birth control pill interfere with this coordination, adversely affecting her normal fertility and any accidental conceptions.

    How effective is the pill?

    In theory, the pill reaches an effectiveness of over 99%, but in practice the rate is much lower. Between 1.9% and 18.1% of women will experience an unplanned pregnancy in the first year of using the pill.

    Surprise pregnancies with the pill are due to a number of factors. Interactions between the pill and some other medications interfere with the proper blood levels of hormones necessary for their birth control effect. These drug interactions may be significant with the commonly used low dose pill where slight alterations in hormonal blood levels can result in more frequent ovulations and hence unplanned pregnancies. Another factor in pill pregnancy rates is not following directions, sometimes due to the lack of motivation, especially in younger women [ages 15-24].

    Is ovulation always suppressed?

    No. Ovulation occurs in 2% to 10% of cycles of women taking the pill. If 60 million women worldwide are on the low-dose pill, there would be 1.2 to 6 million ovulations per cycle. This is known as breakthrough ovulation, and it is even more frequent with the progestin-only pill.

    What happens when ovulation does occur?

    When the pill fails to prevent ovulation, the other mechanisms come into play. Thickened cervical mucus may make it more difficult for the sperm to reach the egg; however, if the egg is fertilized, a new life is created. The hormones slow the transfer of the new life through the fallopian tube, and the embryo may become too old to be viable when it does enter the uterus.

    If the embryo is still viable when it reaches the uterus, under-development of the uterine lining caused by the pill prevents implantation. The embryo dies and the remains are passed along in the next bleeding episode which, incidentally, is not a true menstruation even though it is usually perceived as such.

    Does this mean the pill can cause an early abortion?


    Yes. Preventing the newly conceived life in its embryonic stage from being transported to the uterus and preventing implantation in the wall of the uterus are the abortifacient properties of the pill.

    Why haven’t I heard about this before?


    The Pill manufacturers and many in organized medicine are mainly concerned about the pill’s medical side effects and its effectiveness in preventing pregnancies and are less concerned about how the drug achieves its effectiveness.

    Unfortunately, many otherwise pro-life physicians and pharmacists find it hard to admit that these abortifacient properties exist because they would have to discontinue prescribing and dispensing the pill if they were to remain consistent in their respect for life at all its stages of development.

    Pro-abortion organizations and their lawyers readily admit the early abortion potential of the pill. In February 1992, writing in opposition to a Louisiana law banning abortion, Ruth Colker, a Tulane Law School professor, wrote, "Because nearly all birth control devices, except the diaphragm and condom, operate between the time of conception ... and implantation ..., the statute would appear to ban most contraceptives." In 1989, attorney Frank Sussman argued before the U. S. Supreme Court that " ... IUDs [and] low dose birth control pills ... act as abortifacients."

    Is It Safe? What are the common side effects of the pill?

    There is a range of risks from serious or fatal to minor and trivial. The following is a list of the most common side effects experienced by women taking the pill. These effects are dose related and not every woman will experience them, but the risks still exist. The synthetic estrogens of the combination pill cause many of these; the progestin causes others and is the only risk factor in the progestin-only pill.

    Heart and blood abnormalities

    Blood clots can form, restricting or blocking the flow of blood to critical organs and other body systems, possibly causing permanent damage. For example, a blood clot in the heart would cause a heart attack; in the brain it would cause a stroke or brain hemorrhage; a clot which moved from elsewhere in the body and lodged in the lung would cause a pulmonary embolism; in the kidneys a clot would cause a renal artery thrombosis and kidney damage; in the retinal arteries it would cause temporary or permanent blindness.

    Studies continue to indicate approximately a 2-fold increased risk of fatal heart attacks among users of the current low-dose pill when compared to non-users. This risk is lower than the risk experienced with the older high dosage pill, but it continues to be significant. Similarly, the risk of a fatal brain hemorrhage is increased 1.4 times when comparing users to non-users. Among women who smoke, there is a 12-fold increase in fatal heart attacks and a 3.1-fold increase in fatal brain hemorrhage.

    High blood pressure and alterations in the blood clotting mechanisms may be seen in women on the pill. This may contribute to a 3-11 times increased risk of developing blood clots in Pill users compared to non-users. The risk is especially great for women who smoke and/or are over 35 years old.

    Cancer

    Breast cancer has been repeatedly associated with using the pill.

    Breast cancer has been increasing at an alarming rate in recent years, especially among young women. Breast cancer will kill more than 44,000 American women this year alone, a 1991 report noted, predicting 175,000 more new cases, especially among young women.

    Why is there such an increase of breast cancer among younger women? Note first that women rarely develop breast cancer shortly after they start taking artificial hormones. It is generally not until ten or more years after usage was initiated that women develop breast cancer. Then note that in the United States, since the mid-1970s, it has been common for the pill to be prescribed for girls in their teen years.

    Common sense connects the link between giving the pill to young girls in the 1970s and the later increase in breast cancer 15 to 20 years later among women in their late twenties and thirties. This conclusion was demonstrated in a study which found that Swedish women who took the pill in the 1960s incurred a five times greater increase in breast cancer when compared to non-users.

    The increased risk of breast cancer is seen in younger, nulliparous women [never having borne children], and in long duration groups [greater than five years] of pill users. Large tumors and a worse survival rate are associated with the pill’s use at an early age.

    Will the newer formulated low-dose pills decrease the incidence of breast cancer? A consensus of understanding has not been reached, and another 10 to 20 years of experience with women using this form of the pill must be gained before more definite conclusions can be reached.

    Breast tenderness, enlargement, lumps, and milk secretions also may occur in women using the pill. Doctors are warned not to prescribe the pill to women who are known or suspected to have breast cancer. It is difficult to say what aggravating effect the pill’s hormones would have over a truly random sample of women taking the pill.

    Cervical cancer and cervical dysplasia increase among women who use the pill. How long the pill has been taken, how many sexual partners a woman has had, at what age she began having intercourse, whether she smokes, the hygiene of sexual partners and the transmission of the human papillomavirus [HPV] are also factors in cervical abnormalities. Because of these several factors, the connection of the pill and cervical cancer may be clouded over. However, there is no doubt that the promotion of the pill has resulted in early intercourse which may be the more direct cause of cervical cancer.

    Endometrial and ovarian cancer appear to have a lower incidence in both women on the pill and in those who have been previous users of the pill. Much of this data comes from studies of women who were using the higher dose estrogen/progestin pill. Currently the low dose monophasic and triphasic pills [less than 50mcg of estrogen] are the only birth control pills available on the U.S. market. It is not known if a similar protective effect will be experienced with the currently used pill. More time is needed to study this issue, and the slight protective effect is hardly a reason to take the Pill at the risk of so many other side effects.

    It should also be noted that these forms of cancer are rare and primarily occur among postmenopausal women in their fifties and sixties. Second, these cancers tend to occur in those women who had long cycles [i.e., with a prolonged estrogen-dominant phase] or those who have a family history of these types of cancer. Third, extended breastfeeding amenorrhea offers the same type of protection against these cancers since the menstrual cycle would be suppressed and therefore the exposure to estrogen suppressed.

    Liver tumors in younger women [15 to 40 years] have increased as the use of oral contraceptives has increased. Almost unheard of in this age group before the use of synthetic hormones became commonplace, liver tumors usually do not occur until the sixth decade of a woman’s life.

    A study by the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer found a large peak in the 26-to-30-year age group which corresponds with the increased use of oral contraceptives in this age group. Liver cancer in women on the pill is typically associated with those over 30 who have used it more than four years, but cases of liver cancer in younger women have been cited.

    Other cancers: Skin cancer [melanoma] has also been found to increase among women on the pill. Naturally occurring estrogen is involved with maintaining healthy skin tissue. It is reasonable to suspect that exposure to the more potent synthetic estrogen in the pill increases the risk of this type of cancer.

    Cycle irregularities

    Women who take the pill have been reported to experience bleeding or spotting in mid-cycle, changes in menstrual flow, and even loss of menstruation, which can lead them to wonder if they are pregnant. For some, painful menstruation [dysmenorrhea] has been reported to worsen, even though many women take these hormones in an attempt to relieve the problem.48

    Although some women are given the pill for irregular cycles, it does nothing to improve the underlying problem causing the irregularity. Often the irregularity returns when the pill is discontinued, sometimes more severely.

    Are there other side effects?

    Yes. Some side effects are minor while some may be more severe and call for discontinuing the drug.

    The following adverse effects have been experienced by women on the pill:

    Headaches, migraines, mental depression [even to the point of suicide and/or suicidal tendencies], a decrease or loss of sexual drive, abdominal cramps, bloating, weight gain or loss, and water retention; nausea and vomiting [in about 10% of users]; symptoms of PMS, vaginitis and vaginal infections, changes in vision [temporary or permanent blindness, and an intolerance to contact lenses]; gall bladder disease and either temporary or permanent infertility, when discontinuing the pill, in users with previous menstrual irregularities or who began the drug before full maturity. Several of the symptoms, such as migraine headaches, contraindicate the use of the pill because of life endangering complications.

    Consult the Physicians’ Desk Reference at your public library or consult your pharmacist for a more complete list of the pill’s harmful effects.

    Is the pill safer than pregnancy?

    No. The health risks of the pill outweigh by far the risks of pregnancy and childbirth to a woman’s health, and any claim to the contrary is based on erroneous comparisons between healthy women on the pill and women who do not receive normal care during pregnancy.

    A precondition for obtaining the pill is routine medical care and checkups. For example: if such a woman on the pill is diagnosed as precancerous, or if some other side effect is exhibited, she has the advantage of early detection. However, many pregnant women do not receive routine medical care. A clearer picture of the safety of the pill compared to the safety of pregnancy would be made if healthy women receiving routine medical care during pregnancy and delivery were compared with women receiving routine medical care while taking the pill.

    The mortality statistics of childbirth have continuously declined since the early part of this century, mostly due to better maternal healthcare. Most of the high risk pregnancies and deliveries occur to women who have not sought proper medical attention. This is most evident in the third world where adequate health care is sparse.

    Mortality statistics of pregnancy and delivery, usually called maternal mortality, include the mortality rates due to abortion. Abortion is clearly used as birth control, preventing the birth of the child; therefore it must be included with the mortality statistics of birth control methods. In one study, 25% to 50% of the reported maternal mortality was a result of deaths from abortion.

    Fifty percent of woman taking the pill discontinue it within the first year because of side effects, the development of benign breast disease, or some abnormality of the sexual organs. Studies of pill usage do not include these women, and the result is an unbalanced picture of only the healthiest of women who tolerate the pill. This is compared with the general population of women who are pregnant.

    The fact is that there are 13.8 million women in the U.S. and 60 million women worldwide who use the pill [conservative numbers]. And there are 7.9 pill-related deaths per 100,000 women ages 15-44.

    Therefore, one can calculate that there are over 1090 deaths each year in the U.S. alone simply due to the pill.

    But I’ve heard there are no side effects with the pill I use.


    All drugs, including all brands of the birth control pill, have potential side effects. There is no telling in advance how any particular woman will react to the pill, but there is a good chance of some type of reaction. It is possible that a woman will be unaware that there is any connection between the reaction and the pill especially if it takes years to manifest itself.

    Aren’t there any therapeutic benefits from the pill?

    The only indication, or use for the pill that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration is the prevention of pregnancy in women ... as a method of contraception. Some unapproved uses, considered experimental, include its use as a morning after pill [causing an early abortion], and for relief from the symptoms of mild endometriosis.

    I’m breastfeeding my baby; can I use the pill?

    No. Artificial hormones pass from breast milk to the baby; the pill also decreases both the quantity and protein content of the milk produced.

    What is my alternative to using the pill?


    Natural Family Planning is safe, healthy and effective and it’s also inexpensive. A woman observes and records changes in her basal body temperature, the normal flow of cervical mucus, and if she wishes, the physical changes in the cervix itself. She then cross-checks these signs of fertility to follow, day by day, the natural course of her fertility cycle. No drugs, no devices, no surgical procedures, no threat of death, no side effects, no chemical abortions!

    Does NFP really work?

    Yes. Married couples can achieve a 99% effectiveness if they learn the method, correctly interpret the fertility signs, and follow the rules. One positive side benefit for couples who are committed to making this method work is the potential for a healthier marriage — psychologically, physically and spiritually.

  • Herbs are plant food substances. This is not a scientific definition, it is a practitioners definition. It is used by the people who make recommendations about how to build better health naturally. Herbs have been used since people began eating. They are not new and they were used long before there were people who called themselves doctors or scientists and they worked and they still do.

    There is a solution to every physical problem. It was meant to be that way. It is not experimental. Since there are so many physical differences between us, it stands to reason one herb may do more for a certain person than another but do not despair. There is an herb for you too. Often there are many herbs that are especially helpful for you, just waiting, to be discovered.

    Luckily when eating an herb if the wrong one is taken, nothing much happens and if you do eat too much of it, body mechanisms usually reject it and you leave it alone.Part of the fun is discovering your herb or herbs and in the process an acquaintance with herbs that help other people is gained.

    One of the ways to tell what an herb will do is to taste a little of it. This is much easier to do with a liquid herb than a tablet or a capsule but in any case it should be done before you ask anyone else to try an herb so it will at least be known if what the label says is in the bottle, is in the bottle.

    Please accept this offer to build better health naturally. The information was written because you are respected and appreciated, and loved. Someone does care about you and would like to see you well. Herbs are your birthright. Discover yours. - Dr. A.B. Howard

    Do you take prescription meds?

    Does someone you love take prescription meds?

    Did you know prescription meds is the leading cause of death in America?


    THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN AMERICA: CONVENTIONAL MEDICINE

    Cause of death

    9/11 terrorist attacks - 2,986 killed

    Chernobyl nuclear accident - 4,000 killed

    Murders each year - 16,000

    Americans killed in Vietnam war - 58,226

    Americans killed by Vioxx - 60,000

    Americans killed by prescription drugs (each year) - 106,000

    Americans killed by conventional medicine (each year) - 783,936


    (page 99-112) “How dangerous are prescription drugs, really? The FDA insists they’re safe enough for widespread consumption, even when one drug, all by itself, has killed more Americans than the Vietnam War.

    The truth is that the vast majority of prescription drugs are not compatible with human biology. Rather then working to support human biology, they typically attempt to hijack the body’s biochemistry to achieve a desired measurable result, and a silent massacre is enacted on the people.

    NATURAL HERB NO. 4 FOR MALE SEX PROBLEMS

    GO.-W

    GO.-W [Go! herbal stimulant] - There are times when an individual must rely on a stimulant to fulfill their commitments and duties. The trouble with most stimulants, such as coffee and tea, is they operate on the fly now and pay later principle. In other words, they act like a whip for a tired horse. They burn your reserve nutrients to squeeze out the last ounce of energy and then the crash comes. This leaves you feeling empty and drained inside unless you practice heavy supplementation of vitamins and minerals. The concept here, for a good stimulant, would be to utilize the principle of pay as you go. And that is what GO.-W does. A generous provision of energy and nutrients run side by side.

    Liquid Bee Pollen and Licorice Root are instant energy for the adrenal glands [glands, one on top of each kidney, that produce numerous anti-stress compounds] that balance out the boost provided by the herb Bitter Orange.

    Prickly Ash sweeps away fatigue products such as acids and carbon dioxide, and Capsicum provides the spark to drive oxygen to the brain and vital organs carried by the herb Eyebright. A person is refreshed and ready to go. When you have miles to go and promises to keep before you rest this night there is help in the form of GO.-W.

    This GO.-W combination herb is made of the following single herbs: bitter orange, bee pollen, eyebright, licorice root, gentian, prickly ash, capsicum.

    Dose: 30 to 40 drops, as needed

    NATURAL HERB NO. 5 FOR MALE SEX PROBLEMS

    N.S.S.-M

    Natural Sexual Stimula - herbalist - Miesse - To get this combination right, it was formulated over a number of years by using the herbs that make it up and seeing their results. It was done with clients who found a desire to enhance their sexual vigor for many different reasons.

    Many people do not want to use a drug like Viagra that may cause undesirable side effects down the road. There are many who would rather use a natural stimulant. They prefer to sue the herbal method to enhance their sex drive or to help them overcome problems due to medication and other concerns.

    N.S.S.-M was developed for those who want a natural choice and for those who have been robbed of their natural desires. Through practice, by adding four supporting herbs to an established base combination, we get N.S.S.-M. Many have found the results very pleasing.

    Blue Steele - This great extract combination gives us the very best of both worlds, physically and mentally. This blend contains 12 wonderful herbs: damiana, dong quai, korean ginseng, sarsaparilla, saw palmetto, elderberry, false unicorn root, yokum, siberian ginseng, french vanilla, wood betony and indian tobacco. Without going into detail, 10 of these strengthen desire [acts as an aphrodisiac] and help in hormonal maintenance, and the last one relaxes the system.

    Pumpkin Seed is an excellent trace mineral that contains zinc and copper. It helps a swollen prostate and is a fine source of selenium.

    Maca strengthens sexual functions in both men and women. It functions at the brain level [pituitiary and hypothalamus] for good glandular balance. It is powerful for oxygen and emotions and helps to avoid sexual organ shrinkage with age.

    Sarsaparilla acts like an electrolyte boost for restoring energy from fatigue and exhaustion. Historically, sarsaparilla is a preventive factor against veneral disease. It is a fine hormonal herb for both men and women.

    Gravel Root is generally used for urinary tract problems and stone deposits. This herb wears many hats and is wonderful for relief of stiff and inflamed joints and tissue due to uric acid factors. It is helpful in restoring fertility for those who are suffering from infertility due to chemical or physical problems.

    Comments: The present demand for Viagra-type natural stimulant does exist, however, I do not believe that nature will give you the quick fix effect that the chemical product claims. Though the natural sex stimulant may be subtle, it will build to a healthier, consistent daily attitude toward sexual desire and a balanced healthy body, allowing for many safe years of pleasure and a healthy life style.

    This formula can be used by men and women and is user-friendly.

    The N.S.S.-M combination herb is made of the following single pure herbs: blue steele, pumpkin seed, sarsaparilla, maca and gravel root.

    Dosage: 20 to 40 drops, taken 2 to 3 times daily in juice or water. More as desired will not harm you.

    NATURAL HERB NO. 7 FOR MALE SEX PROBLEMS

    S.D.-R

    S.D.-R (Stone Dissolver-Reuben) Practiced Amish Herbalist, Reuben Schwartz, recommends this highly successful combination, as being "better than a hammer for smashing kidney and bladder stones and dissolving them". The stones do not irritate in the process of dissolving, as the Marshmallow portion in this combination coats the particles and slides them out.

    This combination herb S.D.-R is made of the following single herbs: stone root, gravel root, marshmallow root, hydrangea root.

    Dose: 40 to 80 drops hourly, while awake, with a glass of water until dissolved. A slower approach is 80 drops three times per day.

    NATURAL HERB NO. 8 FOR MALE SEX PROBLEMS

    S.M.& W.-S

    First of all, The Formula - Stimulant for Men & Women by Solomon - contains the knowledge and observation of many years of Amish herbal experience. When a practitioner sees problems over and over, and what actually works on them, then you have experience that is valuable.

    What else? Well, the real touch of excitement comes wheen you can see a formula [based on this experience and made with high quality herbs] put together and see it can do more than the individual herbs in it can do separately. Then you really have something. And that is what happened and how this formula S.M. & W.-S was developed and came to be.

    Since then, we have the evidence of people continuing to deman this formula for its assistance to men and women. On the basis of this, one might suspect that it works. We can get a hint of its total function by looking at its ingredients.

    Sarsaparilla has long been prized for its anti-stress, energy and stamina giving properties by nourishing the adrenal glands [one on top of each kidney]. The adrenal glands factually make at least four dozen different anti-stress compounds to keep us on a level path.

    They can even make female hormones for a woman who has had a hysterectomy operation to remove the ovaries and/or the uterus.

    Pumpkin seed contains the necessary trace elements of zinc and copper. Zinc is the friend of the prostate and the uterus so that they function normally. Cooper is needed to ensure elasticity of connective tissue.

    Pumpkin seeds are also the enemy of parasites that often plague parts of the body and go undetected as a cause of mischief. Zinc and copper from pumpkin seeds don't fight each other like the people who sell you laboratory made tablets of copper and zinc supplements say they do.

    Yokum is an herb that has known hormonal support properties. It increases the function of sexual activity for men and women. Wild Yam can be taken by women and men to provide the building blocks for the body to convert into whatever sexual hormone may be lacking.

    Wild Yam also has a hormonal balancing property to it.

    Maca is the herb used for millennia by the native peoples of the high Peruvian Andes Mountains for its fertility and anti-stress support. Maca is at home in the Andes and lives and survives the rigors of that harsh climate.

    Stone Root dissolves waste mineral deposits that can clog up circulatory vessels and thus restores circulation and function. It is noted especially for its correction of the urinary system, but it also works on cleaning heart valves and all other areas where there are congestive mineral desposits

    This S.M & W.-S combination herb is comprised of the following single herbs: sarsaparilla, pumpkin seed, yokum, wild yam, maca and stone root.

    Dosage: 80 drops to 1 tsp., 3 times per day and let nature do the rest.

Cover this with plastic sandwich wrap and a cloth and wear with snug but not tight fitting under shorts. Leave on overnight. The next morning, remove the application and discard. Wash the area and allow to dry. Then repeat the application for the daytime. This is an around-the-clock, time release corrective action. Persist until the condition is corrected. Be sure to use with a good bowel program [See Cascara Sagrada, Buckthorn, C.C.E.-W] to carry off the wastes to avoid skin irritation. This same procedure can be followed for other body parts for the other conditions listed above, where practicable. Apply Mayapple to venereal warts as needed.

    NATURAL HERB NO. 13 FOR MALE SEX PROBLEMS

    Saw Palmetto

    Saw Palmetto - This relatively small palm tree inhabits the coast of the U.S. from the Carolinas southward. Its roots help to hold the coastal shoreline together. Produced on its branches is an edible date like fruit. The fruit, along with its seed, have been used by the original coastal inhabitants since before any recorded history. Although the date is said, through modern investigation, to contain male hormone, it has been and is used, successfully, by both men and women to ensure complete sexual development. Men and women, both, use Saw Palmetto to develop their proper proportions and functions. In women, continued use of Saw Palmetto, in about 60% of cases of underdevelopment, does produce increased breast size. Of the other 40%, 20% show no change, and 20% show increased aggression with no change of breast size. For men, Saw Palmetto rebuilds shriveled testicles and corrects associated disorders. For women, Saw Palmetto rebuilds diminished ovaries.

    For both sexes, Saw Palmetto produces solid flesh weight and increased strength without fat. This is of special interest also, to body builders and athletes, both men and women. French researchers report: Saw Palmetto prevents male pattern baldness. The isolated cause is stated to be the overproduction of a male hormone, dihydrotestosterone, in the areas of the scrotum and scalp. Saw Palmetto balances this out and the hair is retained. Saw Palmetto can be given in cases of convalescence, where the person is wasting away, to put flesh back on the bones for successful recuperation. [Combines well with Barberry. See: Barberry]

    Dose: 30 to 40 drops, 3 times per day. For men threatened with male pattern baldness, take 30 to 40 drops, by mouth, 3 times per day, and once per day, rub Saw Palmetto into the inner thighs and into the scalp in amounts needed to cover the area. For women, take 20 to 40 drops, 3 times per day internally, and once per day, apply to both breasts. Athletes, 30 to 50 drops, 4 times per day.

    NATURAL HERB NO. 14 FOR MALE SEX PROBLEMS

    UR.-W

    UR.-W [Urinary] - For urinary tract problems of all kinds, corrects burning, reduces swelling of prostate and uterus, pinching, pressure, tightens urinary sphincter control to correct incontinence and dissolves stones of the kidneys and bladder.

    When using a kidney formula for dissolving accumulated waste or flushing out infections, it is a good idea to drink at least 6 glasses of a good spring water per day, or green drink can be taken at the rate of 1 cup full, every hour, while awake. Prepare a live green drink by blending 1 handfull of any fresh, edible green leaves of lettuce [no head lettuce please] with 1 pint [1/2 liter] of water. Blend for one minute and filter through a paper coffee filter, if desired. Make fresh daily, and chill in the refrigerator to keep throughout the day. If going out, then take an insulated vacuum bottle along for hourly use. If urine flow has stopped, then liberally apply UR.-W directly to the kidney areas on the back which are under and above the last ribs. Apply several times until the urinary flow resumes. If a stubborn problem that requires more intensive work, then apply Vitamin E from 100 i.u. capsules [i.u. stands for International Unit and is a measure of liquid vitamins] to prevent irritation.

    Next, especially if there is pain, apply Herbal Adjustment and Peppermint Oil or Oil of Cajeput directly to the skin. Then, soak a single layer of absorbent gauze or cheese cloth with UR.-W and lay this over the kidney area. Cover with plastic sandwich wrap and finally, wrap a cloth around the body to hold all in place. This procedure is known as a fomentation [fo'-men-tay-shun]. Leave on overnight, each night, until well. This can be repeated for the daytime, if needed. Wash the area and allow to dry before putting on a new fomentation. Never reuse a fomentation as this time-release procedure not only drives the herbs into the affected area, it also pulls poisons out of the body in the reverse direction.

    Take internally, daily, to correct infections and prevent problems. For men and women it is very important to have a good bowel maintenance program, in conjunction with solving urinary problems, to guard against bowel wastes being reabsorbed and irritating the surrounding areas. [See: Cascara Sagrada, C.C.E.-W, Buckthorn].

    For women it is important to use the napkin instead of the tampon, as the tampon holds irritants internally that aggravate surrounding areas. If additional assistance is needed, then consider the use of Pipsissewa [or Blue Cohosh if not pregnant] in case venereal infections may be related to the suffering, at the rate of 40 drops, 3 times per day.

    This combination herb UR.-W is made of the following single natural herbs: cornsilk, uva ursi, gravel root, buchu and yarrow.

    Dose: As a daily maintenance of the urinary tract, 30 to 40 drops per day. If an active problem, then 40 to 80 drops internally, after meals, or hourly while awake, in times of crisis and as given above.

    NATURAL HERB NO. 15 FOR MALE SEX PROBLEMS

    Echinacea

    The function of Echinacea is in the ability to expel morbid material, hence circulation is improved. It has long been held that the average person has 10 to 20 pounds of morbid material in the blood system and alimentary canal that is chronic and uneliminated. It is a perfect breeding ground for disease and malfunction, hence, the extraordinary, valuable role of Echinacea is highly desirable.

    Auto-infection, where the body is infectious to itself due to stale wastes is eliminated by Echinacea. As this occurs, help in the following areas are observed: strengthen the immune system, syphilis, gonorrhea, gangrene, tired feeling, resolving of pus pockets and pimples, elimination of piles, correction of lymphatic inflammation, snake bites, stinging creatures, bad breath, toxic tonsils, prostate problems, sexual impotence, and foul discharges.

    It should be noted that Echinacea produces temporary skin disturbances in cases of weak kidneys, lymphatic engorgement, poor lung and bowel elimination. The body simply kicks waste out through the skin. This may alarm some people as they think the Echinacea has made them sick. Persistence in its use will soon clear up this temporary corrective disturbance.

    Care should be taken to assist Echinacea by increased bowel elimination with a laxative as needed. Dry brushing of the skin with a brush, made of vegetable fiber, non-synthetic clothing and gentle sunbathing will greatly diminish skin irritation.

    Deep, old, bluish chronic conditions respond to Echinacea. External dryness and bluishness due to internal dehydration and oxygen starvation are a specialty of Echinacea. This may be applied externally with gauze or cotton and covered by plastic and held in place with a cloth wrap. Vitamin E oil from 100 or 400 i.u. capsule(s) should be applied before the gauze to prevent irritation to very sensitive skin.

    Dosage: 5 to 40 drops one or two times per day internally. Start with 5 drops and increase if necessary. Be sure to use a bowel cleaner such as C.C.E.-W [see Cleansing Corrective Extract] to keep the debris flowing and prevent sick feeling, while Echinacea does its job.

    Greasewood [Chaparral]

    This remedy comes from the American Indian Pharmacopoeia [listing of official Indian medicines]. Greasewood bush has dark, sticky, resinous-filled leaves and stems. It has the distinct taste of telephone poles or creosote, hence its common name Greasewood Bush. It performs a very valuable service as a douche for the female system [20 drops of extract to a cup of water].

    Greasewood is most valuable due to the rising widespread use of commercial antibiotics whose use encourages the growth of many types of fungi [funguses], in the body. Jason Winter's Red Clover Tea Blend employs Greasewood aas an agent to dissolve tumors and cancers on the advice of the American Indian. Indeed, of the Indian nations, the Eapoch, Pimas, and Maricopias of the desert southwest have long employed Greasewood to be effective int he following conditions: weight reduction, prostate trouble, skin and stomach cancer, leukemia, cancer, arthritis, warts, chronic backache, bronchitis troubles and to stimulate normal hair growth.

    Dosage: 10 to 40 drops one to three times per day depending on severity of condition. Two to three bowel movements per day are recommended, when using Chaparral to complete the cleaning process.

    Lapacho

    Experienced herbalists consider that both the Tabebuia altissima [purple flowered] and Tabebuia avellanedae [red flowered] varieties should be mixed together for the best possible effects. South American medical doctors proclaim nothing short of miracles for quick relief of pain for cancers of all types as well as their cure within one month in many cases.

    Once again, South American Indians made known a tree which they have used for thousands of years to cure their people. The first was the Cinchona tree bark which yields quinine and cures malaria. Lapacho taken as a boiled tea three times per day [one heaping teaspoonful of the bark to make one cup of the tea] is reported to be their method. The extract is possibly many times stronger if made properly.

    The chemistry of Lapacho is quite well known to the scientific world. Dr. Frederick Koch, M.D., used substances from the tree bark called quinones during the 1930's in Detroit, Michigan, with astonishing results to cure even advanced cancer cases before going to South America in order to continue his practice. He especially used a single quinone, which he described as oxidizing or burning up the encapsulated pockets of stagnant cancer-causing points.

    He reports in this way he was able to provide oxygen for the breath of life to continue for the patient. Lapacho actually has 16 quinones never before discovered together in nature. The jungle Lapacho tree is completely immune to fungus infections unlike other trees. It should not be thought that the limit of Lapacho's abilities are confined to cancer, according to Alec de Montmorency, expert on exotic folk remedies. He has collected medical information during the last 20 years on the use of Lapacho in various South American countries.

    He reports the following list of problems that medical doctors using Lapacho have solved: anemia, leukemia, cancer of all types, lupus, inflammation of the reproductive organs, Hodgkin's disease, Parkinson's disease, colitis, arteriosclerosis, gastric problems, leukorrhea, cystits, hemorrhages, prostate inflammation, polyps, psoriasis and eczema.

    Dosage: South American information indicates 40 to 80 drops of the extract in a cup of water three to four times per day. 20 drops per day as a preventative.

    Quack Grass

    Quack Grass - Triticum repens, is also known by many other common names such as: dog grass, witch grass, shelly grass, quick grass, twitch grass, knot grass, and dog weed. This is an undistinguished looking, but dependable, valuable wild grass with an unsuspected hint of sweet taste.

    Of special interest to herbalists and natural practitioners is the fact that Quack Grass contains a very rich and effective source of the trace element, Selenium. This friendly herbal source of the important trace mineral element, Selenium is used by the body to cause an enzyme [a compound produced by the body which speeds up or slows down the living process without it itself being altered] called glutathione peroxidase [glu'-tuh-thy-own purr'-ox-uh-dase] to stop destructive free radicals [dangerous oxygen compounds formed in the process of living as fat stores are maintained, and from environmental pollution and when fats are fried] from interfering with or causing mutations [defective or enemy cells] during normal cellular division. [Another word to describe what the Selenium in Quack Grass is doing here is the word, antioxidant].

    By stopping the formation of defective cells, this immediately suggests the use of Quack Grass to prevent formation of cancerous cells. This explains why earlier herbalists have reported using Quack Grass for such a variety of conditions. Certainly, we know many animals eat Quack Grass when they are sick. Cats eat Quack Grass to throw up hair balls. [No, you do not have to have hair balls to take Quack Grass.]

    Quack Grass is used to clean out the bladder and urinary tract. For men, Quack Grass can reduce swelling of the prostate gland. For this purpose, Quack Grass combines especially well with the herb Saw Palmetto. Quack Grass also dissolves the acids which torment joints and kidneys and cause gout.

    Dose: 40 to 80 drops 3 times per day. As a maintenance, 40 to 80 drops per day.

    Pumpkin Seed

    Pumpkin Seed - Good source for the valuable trace element zinc that builds skin integrity internally and externally, promotes normal wound healing, is needed to insure a strong immune system in developing baby, grows healthy hair and nails and prevents onset of some cancers. Zinc eliminates foot odor in some individuals. One way to determine if a body has a Zinc deficiency, is to look for white spots under the fingernails.

    If present and chronic [persistent], then be assured there is a zinc deficiency. Pumpkin Seed is an especially good source of the trace mineral zinc for men especially to promote virility and fertility, maintain proper prostate health and to correct a swollen prostate. One of the first warning signs, for men with prostate problems, is that the urinary flow is slow to start.

    Pumpkin Seed is also high in another valuable trace element: namely, selenium. Selenium, being an anti-oxidant, prevents damage from poisons to the body's genetic materials, that are responsible for cell duplication and sex cell reproduction and to prevent cancer cell formation.

    Excellent parasite remedy; especially good to rid the body of pin worms, round worms, and tape worms. These problems are far more widespread than most people would ever suspect, even today. Pumpkin Seeds also contain the element Copper that must be and is balanced with its zinc content.

    Special note If many baffling symptoms and none of the herbs seem to work, then it is time to de-worm. It is estimated, conservatively, that one out of every two people has one or more infectious parasites -- yes, even in the civilized areas of earth.

    Dose: 40 to 80 drops 3 times per day. To rid the body of parasites, 1 tsp. to 1 tbl. each evening with a good bowel cleaner. [See Cascara Sagrada, C.C.E.-W or Buckthorn]. You must be able to flush out what Pumpkin Seed has killed to prevent nausea.

    Pipsissewa

    Pipsissewa [Pip'-sis-see-wah] - Say it softly and slowly and you will hear, in this American Indian name, the spring rain softly falling on the petals and flowers of this cheerful little spring flower. Use for any of these conditions: burning urine, prostate irritation, mucus in the urine, water retention, lower back pain or pressure [due to the kidneys], sore joints due to gonorrhea, or skin disorders. Many chronic problems, with no seeming cause or cure, may be due to a secondary or primary manifestation of a venereal infection(s), which may or may not have been inherited. In these baffling cases, consider Pipsissewa as a key to open the lock. Pipsissewa is gentle on the stomach. Rub on sore muscles after heavy lifting or on abdomen after childbirth, as needed, to promote comfort.

    Dose: 40 to 80 drops three to four times per day. Double this dose in severe cases.

    NATURAL HERBS TO DISSOLVE TUMORS

    My people perish for lack of knowledge. Hosea 4:6

    For all of you who desire answers to physical problems and desire to build better health naturally here is some information on the historical use of herbs.

    The natural Pure Herbs information shared below about dissolving tumors is an excerpt from the book Herbal Extracts: Build A Better Health With Liquid Herbs. This information is not intended to be a substitute for medical advice by licensed physicians. A reader should consult a physician regularly in all matters relating to medical problems, especially in matters of diagnosing, treating or curing diseases or other physical or mental conditions.

    Herbs are plant food substances. This is not a scientific definition, it is a practitioners definition. It is used by the people who make recommendations about how to build better health naturally. Herbs have been used since people began eating. They are not new and they were used long before there were people who called themselves doctors or scientists and they worked and they still do.

    There is a solution to every physical problem. It was meant to be that way. It is not experimental. Since there are so many physical differences between us, it stands to reason one herb may do more for a certain person than another but do not despair. There is an herb for you too. Often there are many herbs that are especially helpful for you, just waiting, to be discovered.

    Luckily when eating an herb if the wrong one is taken, nothing much happens and if you do eat too much of it, body mechanisms usually reject it and you leave it alone.Part of the fun is discovering your herb or herbs and in the process an acquaintance with herbs that help other people is gained.

    One of the ways to tell what an herb will do is to taste a little of it. This is much easier to do with a liquid herb than a tablet or a capsule but in any case it should be done before you ask anyone else to try an herb so it will at least be known if what the label says is in the bottle, is in the bottle.

    Please accept this offer to build better health naturally. The information was written because you are respected and appreciated, and loved. Someone does care about you and would like to see you well. Herbs are your birthright. Discover yours.

    - Dr. A.B. Howard

    Sanicle | 1st Pure Herb for Dissolving Tumors

    This is a herb that leadership at Healed People, Heal People has personally taken. As well, I know others who have taken this herb specifically to dissolve or shrink fibroid tumors with great success. It is imperative that a person changes their quality and types of food eaten. There are many regular foods that contribute to the growth and increased size of fibroid tumors and cysts in people. So, what am I saying here? Please, please, let’s deal with the root of the problem, your quality and type of food intake, in addition to this herb.

    The American herbal practitioner, Jethro Kloss, in his monumental work, Back To Eden, aptly describes Sanicle in this manner: This is one of the herbs that could be called a cure-all because it possesses powerful cleansing and healing virtues both internally and externally.

    Sanicle’s great strength includes its uncanny ability to seek out and find anything, which needs correcting and works on that area first that needs it most. It also deserves distinction as a thinking herb. In other words, if you’ve got it, Sanicle will find it and fix it, whether the tumor is in the reproductive organs, brain, nervous system, lungs, throat, urinary system or elsewhere.

    Sanicle is a bulldozer and builder. There may be temporary discomfort when Sanicle contacts an unwanted obstruction, but it is your reassurance that Sanicle has scored a direct hit. Skin disorders, tumors [also brain tumors], and all manner of morbid material are resolved by Sanicle.

    Prolapsis of the uterus [fallen uterus], melancholy [due to toxins], thin mother’s milk, morning sickness, diabetes, bee stings, and intermittent fever indicate general categories of its ubiquitous [seemingly everywhere] application.

    Dosage | 40 drops two to three times per day. If a brain tumor, also apply to entire scalp, back to neck and temples. Rub one tablespoon into the scalp at night and wear a shower cap. Wash the area in the morning. During day rub Herbal Adjustment [another natural herb that can be ordered] into scalp 3 times per day.

    Chuchuhuasi |
    2nd Pure Herb for Dissolving Tumors

    ... Rather than just working on the relief of symptoms, Chuchuhuasi apparently works on the actual cause of anti-tumor properties.

    This is the South American Indian name for the rain forest tree known botanically as Maytenus macrocarpa. Its home is the steamy jungles of Peru, where it is well known and used by the people, especially in and around Iquitos, Peru on the Amazon river.

    Because of the remoteness of this area, its use was unknown to the rest of the world until recent times. Yet, it is now, perhaps, the most popularly used rain forest herb in Peru. Life in a jungle environment means dealing with infections, bites and diseases of many kinds.

    Remedies must be found and used. Chuchuhuasi serves this multi-purpose function, and it is commonly taken in the liquid extract form. Among Chuchuhuasi's strongest properties is the building of immunity and, at the same time, enhancing sexual activity and function. The ability of Chuchuhuasi to do this has attracted strong scientific interest.

    This is accomplished by using the root bark as a liquid and taking orally three times per day. Rather than just working on the relief of symptoms, Chuchuhuasi apparently works on the actual cause of arthritis and, in this manner, restores joints to working order. This, of course, has aroused considerable excitement in the scientific community.

    The same can be said regarding Chuchuhuasi's anti-tumor properties. The United States Department of Agriculture has isolated the alkaloid [active bitter compound] maytansine as being most prominent in the compounds believed to be active in the shrinkage of tumors.

    As if all this would not be enough to recommend the daily use of Chuchuhuasi, it is also applied to the skin to repel jungle mosquitos. Now, the mosquitos of the Peruvian jungle are rumored, by the local inhabitants, for the benefit of tourists, to be, So large you can hear them when they walk, and Senior, they may even possess backbones! At any rate, accounts of their ferocity are legendary and Chuchuhuasi undoubtedly a welcome remedy.

    Dose | 40 to 80 drops 3 times per day as maintenance. 1 tsp. 3 times per day for more serious cases. Externally as given above.

    Una de Gato
    | 5th Pure Herb for Dissolving Tumors

    Una de Gato is a Spanish named herb pronounced that means claw-of-cat or, as we would say in English, cat's claw. In the remote area of Iquitos, Peru, where Una de Gato is at home, it is very widely used and depended upon to handle a wide variety of problems, including those of a serious nature. Here is what is listed in Peru as the traditional and accepted South American Native Folk Medicinal uses of Una de Gato.

    Una De Gato can be taken to correct arthritis, rheumatism, cancer, gastritis, irregularities of the female cycle.

    From all reports, this is one of the South American Indians' very best arthritis remedies. Although it is not scientifically accepted, people there use it and get rid of their arthritis, including the type we call rheumatoid arthritis, where the body is actually fighting itself.

    Una de Gato is also, especially, noted for its anti-viral properties, tumor dissolving properties, its effects on cellular regeneration and cardiovascular repair. As in all jungle areas, one of the things which must be guarded against is infections.

    Una de Gato is a potent immune system builder. This is especially important in conditions described as rheumatoid arthritis and or osteoarthritis, where the body is attacking itself, commonly called auto-immune reactions. Una de Gato reestablishes the proper immune system orientation for cells that are true friends and those that are the actual foes.

    A strong immune system is essential to reversing the effects, and prevention, of any kind of disease. Hence, a wide range of disorders are reported to be corrected by the use of Una de Gato in Peru and Europe.

     

    Very well documented South American medical information shows Una de Gato to be nearly miraculous in combating cancer, even in advanced stages, where as much as 10% of body cells are in a state of metastasis. Because of the shared reputation Una de Gato has earned for itself, no immune problem or cancer is regarded, in Peru, as incurable.

    Dose| 40 drops, 3 times per day to maintain immunity. For disease conditions listed above, 1 tsp. to 1 tbl. 3 times per day.

    With the use of Una de Gato, as with any herb that destroys bad cells [cancer], do use a good bowel management program which produces two, and preferably three, easy and complete bowel movements per day. In this manner, the wastes and poisons the body is getting rid of, can be eliminated from the body and nausea is prevented. This allows the body to clean itself up and to get well.

    Common sense and good sense, both, demand that you eliminate anything from the diet and the environment which is a poison. A good place to start, regarding what you eat, is any food with any kind of chemical additives such as: chemical dyes, preservatives, flavor magnifiers, stabilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and the like. Eliminate junk foods - and you do know what those are.

    Whole Apricot | 6th Pure Herb for Dissolving Tumors

    Dr. Ernest J. Krebs, a noted authority on cancer, has often stated that if a person eats 6-12 apricots kernels per day, they will never have to worry about cancer. He recommends peach or cherry kernels, as well. Contained within these kernels is a very small amount of a substance called nitriloside amygdalin [laetrile, vitamin B-17]. It goes directly to a cancer cell, stings it, and kills it.

    This is especially true of glandular cancers, such as the prostate and other glands. The same is true for moles on the skin and internal tumors. For moles, take Whole Apricot internally and also apply Whole Apricot and Oil of Cajeput, 3 times per day, to the area until corrected. There is no fear necessary for this extremely small amount of cyanide; remember Vitamin B-12 is also a cyanide compound and is absolutely essential to life or a person develops a deadly disease known as pernicious anemia.

    Head lettuce, as a further example, contains a very small amount of opium. Although it is not recommended, head lettuce does not cause a person to go unconscious or stupefied, and head lettuce is still eaten. Once you taste apricot kernels, you can recognize an accentuated almond taste. That is the part that kills the cancer cells. It is also present in almonds, but to a much lesser extent. You may find your body is hungry for this taste and the truly wonderful effect it has. The safe rule is not to eat any more apricot kernels than you would of the apricot fruit during a day.

    Dose |10-20 drops per day, as a daily maintenance. 40 drops to 1 tbl. 3 times per day, if cancer in the body. Keep the bowels open to expel the dead, nauseating cells and poisons with a good bowel program which produces 2, and preferably 3, bowel movements per day.

    If necessary to quickly relieve the nausea of this regimen, take, as needed, 10 to 40 drops of a poison antidote such as black cohosh or virginia snake root. Additionally, an enema can be taken. Usually, within 10 minutes of taking the enema you will feel better. If necessary, repeat the enema.

  • needtoforgive
    You hear a lot about forgiveness and how we need to release those who have sinned against us. But what if the person you need to forgive is yourself? What if you can’t move forward because of something you know you’ve done wrong and it haunts you? When taking people through biblical, integrated healing and deliverance it's been learned over decades that the most difficult thing for people to do is forgive themselves.

    There are always three parts to forgiveness: 1) forgiving others and others forgiving you; 2) forgiving or really releasing God [cause many of us are ticked off at the Lord and just afraid to admit it; it's okay you can admit it, you will not be sinning or loose your space in line to get into heaven]; and 3) forgiving yourself.

    Satan speaks many lies to us that simply are not true. So what does he speak? He says the following lies to us.

    a) What I did so such a big sin the Lord cannot forgive it.

    b) I knew better and still did it, so it's not forgivable.

    c) I've continued to repeat this same behavior and I'm so ashamed, I just can't ask for forgiveness again.

    d) I've downed others and have now done what I said I wouldn't do. I'm a terrible person.

    Remember, that these four things I wrote above are lies from satan. And the Bible clearly repeats that the father of lies is satan. So I encourage you today to release yourself from false guilt and accept the forgiveness that is available for you today.

    Cry in private if you need to and wail out your pain. Write yourself a letter to get it mentally out of your head. Speak the words out loud saying you forgive yourself and ask the Holy Spirit to supernaturally work the self-forgiveness down into the granules and crevices of your hurting, almost numb, heart. Ask the Holy Spirit to bring life, no abundant life, into your heart, mind and life.

    Minister G. Craige Lewis

    I listened and watched several videos videos by Minister G. Craige Lewis. Below, I've typed notes from the revelation the Holy Spirit has given him. I thank God for imparting different callings and revelation to people within the body of Christ. Enjoy and please send a link to this article to as many Christians as you can. Thank you.

    HIP HOP MUSIC -- There’s something that’s now rocking America; it’s worst than a bomb. It’s now created a bunch of young [Christian and non-Christian] people who totally defy order. The churches have now embraced it, hip hop, and the whole world is being rocked by the impact of it. The enemy started planning this demonic hip-hop strategy in the Zulu nation in Africa and even all the way back to Pharaoh. The enemy began to prepare something to catch and captivate the minds of young people to pull them straight into his own belly. This is the hip-hop culture. This means church youth [and adults] will and are beginning to worship the devil through hip hop music. It’s plain and simple. Our youth [and adults] need deliverance from this because the music and videos have created an open door into their young lives.

    Why do Christian parents allow their children to buy clothes that promote godless, perverted artists – like Sean Jean, Rocawear. Biggie Smalls, when he was living, had a group called The Junior Mafia – it was broken into three groups. Each group was called a 6. The entire junior mafia was called 666. Right before Biggie Smalls died, he was preparing to start a clothing line to be named 666. And had this come to fruition, would Christian parents have allowed their children to purchase these clothes and wear even wear them in the house of God. Of course, 666 is the mark of the beast. So what’s a simple strategy the devil uses to promote the anti-Christ agenda, he raises up superstars – like Biggie Smalls, like Beyonce, like Jay-Z.

    Russell Simmons [former husband of Kimora Lee Simmons] is the owner of Phat Farm clothing line. His house looks like a gym and in his basement he has a statute of Kali. Kali is the Indian yoga goddess of death and destruction. He prays to this statue every morning. Kali had followers that would worship her stature back in the 19th century. They sacrificed money, jewels and possessions to this goddess. When people came into the temple to worship Kali, men came into the temple to beat up whoever was worshipping Kali. They were robbers and thieves. These men would put the jewels in their mouths and hide all of the possessions they stole. These men were named thugs. Russell Simmons is pegged as a godfather of hip-hop and he worships the goddess that rules over these thugs. The word thug is synonymous to the hip-hop culture. Many people in hip-hop refer to themselves as thugs. There is a new show getting ready ready to air [at the end of 2009] about Tupac titled Thug Angel.

    These artists in the hip-hop culture begin to take on thug characteristics and conjure up and channel these very demonic spirits of the thugs back from the 19th century. [There are pictures available to compare facial expressions of body mannerisms so you can see how identical.] 50 Cent, Slim Thug, Mike Jones, Young Buck, Lil John – these guys are glorifying being thugs. This is demonic worship or familiar spirits as scripture calls it. Notice the facial expressions of these hip-hoppers [view videos on YouTube by Minister G. Craige Lewis]. In the form of entertainment, satan is using these hip-hoppers to promote the anti-Christ agenda. Yes, they even put their extravagant jewelry in their mouths, just like the thugs from the 19th century that stole from those who worshipped the idol god Kali in the temple.

    Jay-Z calls himself jehovah god. He believes he is god. He does not believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He believes the Black man is god. His clothing line is Rocawear. And why are Christians buying these clothes and even sporting them to church? He has an album called The Black Album and there’s a song on there that you have to play in reverse. These are the lyrics when the song is played in reverse – 666, murder, murder Jesus, 666. [The video of this song being played backwards is posted on this site for you to hear.] Yes, these are the subliminal messages Jay-Z is sending to those listening to this song. And why are Christians supporting him again? Have you noticed that hip-hop clothing is in every department store now. Wake up saints! We wonder what's wrong with our youth and young adults. We wonder why the atmosphere in our homes are not peaceful. Well -- this hip-hop music and the videos create many open doors for you, your children and young adults to invite the demonic right on in to your home, car and life.

    Remember the old song, Another One Bites The Dust. When that song was played backwards or in reverse, it said, I like to smoke marijuana. When kids were interviewed, the kids said, they just wanted to get high, they wanted to smoke weed. The kids and adults didn’t have any idea why these thoughts and urges were coming upon them. Christians, saints, believers -- there are only two forces in the world -- God who was Jesus in the flesh and satan. God who is available to us now through The Holy Spirit is omnipotent. As we know, satan can only be in one place at a time. So, what does satan do? He uses demons to do his work. He has assigned demons everywhere. To you, your family, your community, your church, your denomination, your city, your country, your institutions, your governments, your companies, your vocations, and, of course, the media, education and entertainment industries.

    The following article is property of EX Ministries' Web site. The information that Charisma did not publish!

    A few months ago we were approached by Charisma magazine to do an interview. We have been asked by several national talk shows and publications to give interviews. We always pray and proceed with caution. EX Ministries is not in the business of seeking to promote our cause or message through nationally distributed magazines, however when we were approached by Charisma, we agreed to do the article. We agreed partly because, Charisma has a reputation of being edgy and also they informed me that they were doing an article anyway, whether I agreed to the interview or not.

    So I gave them the whole story and answered their questions only after they promised that they would print exactly what I said. Further more, I found that just a year or so prior to this, they had released an issue with a very lengthy cover story on holy hip hop and its use in the black church. I hoped that they would give us the same consideration and print the information we gave them so that it would answer questions and warn others about the dangers of hip-hop.

    In the February 2007 issue, they printed the article about us, and much to my surprise, they were very reserved with editing my answers and hardly printed any thing that we addressed in our interview. Although we do not feel the article was directly negative towards our stand, we do feel that the meat of the matter was never really dealt with. I would think that this information would be important enough to discuss with as much intensity as the article they did on holy hip hop, but once again, the booty shaking, grilled mouthed, inmate mimicking, embarrassment to our race, hip hoppers, were lifted up and the truth behind hip hop was snubbed.

    Since Charisma didn’t print our interview in its original format, we decided to give you the full list of questions and answers uncut and unedited, as I corresponded with their journalist. This is the information that the 700 Club, Gospel Today, Charisma, and many others will not print for whatever reason.


    Charisma Magazine Artical Uncut

    JB of Charisma Magazine -What is the goal of your DVD series The Truth Behind Hip Hop?

    G. Craige Lewis - Actually, we have no goals for the DVD because we never pursued or planned to record a DVD. One of the most dangerous things that I believe has infected the body of Christ is self-promotion. Yet, this is what most pastors or traveling evangelist are told they must do to get the word out. If the word they were trying to get out was their own then promoting it would be fine. However, if its God’s Word then I believe that God is responsible to promote it. The Truth Behind Hip-Hop is definitely an example of that. The series came about as a result of my traveling and preaching The Truth Behind Hip Hop for two years prior to the DVD. The 1st DVD was recorded in 2002 at the request of a ministry in my area. Initially, I turned them down, because I didn’t want to change the way God was getting the message out. However, after I prayed, the ministry approached me again and the Lord told me to let them record it. The recording didn’t cost me a dime of my own money and besides that, we never mass-marketed it, signed a distribution deal, or tried to promote it ourselves. Yet, through word of mouth and just making them available on our site quite a few people have ordered the DVD’s. What are my goals and desires for the DVD’s? I never planned for DVD’s in the first place. Simply put, I want what God wants and that is for every believer to deny himself and follow Christ!

    JB of Charisma Magazine -Your message on secular hip-hop is clear, however, I didn't see where you offered an alternative or solution to what our young people should be listening to. Could you please explain further on this?

    G. Craige Lewis - This is dealt with in our 3rd DVD, Antichrist Superstar. We believe that God is not an alternative! He should never be put in the position to replace something that should have never been there in the first place. Consider this, a young person is saved and delivered from an addiction to drugs and the church gives them holy drugs as an alternative? This is absurd. Yet this what so-called holy-hip-hoppers are doing. That young person doesn’t need an alternative drug; the drugs should have never been in their lives in the first place. We teach young people that Jesus Christ is the WAY! Seek him and find him and you will know then what is good and acceptable according to the unction that is within you, called the anointing! We are here to push people into the face of God not by offering replacements, but rather using the written word of God and exposing the darkness and deception that exists in their lives whether through music, or any other form of idol worship. God is first. Once you seek him, you will know in your heart what is good for your mind and soul. Some people think that I am anti-music. As a musician and former producer, I have recorded plenty of music; I have friends who record good Christian music; and according to some trends in ministry, I should be taking the bad stuff and then selling them my stuff—but God has not told me to do that. I preach the message that God has told me to preach and let the Holy Spirit, PASTORS, YOUTH PASTORS, and parents do the rest.

    JB of Charisma Magazine -What are your feelings toward the holy hip-hop movement?

    G. Craige Lewis - Holy hip hop is ridiculous. It makes no sense. It's just another tool of the enemy to make our young black males act, dress, and behave in a manner that is only beneficial to a rap star and those that profit from it. Although, these antics may be entertaining to some, to the average black man, these behaviors are roadblocks that halt their forward progress in the true culture we live in called the American culture! Dressing like gang members, wearing your hair like women, sagging your pants like inmates, and speaking broken English is, by the American standard, unacceptable behavior and will continue to be a hindrance in the future of our generation. Why would a church embrace that? Why would a church promote that? Out of desperation, many churches are resorting to holy thugs and gospel gangsta's to entertain their youth while the adults are worshipping. You see, you can't minister to teens about self-love, self-promotion, self-empowerment, and all the fluff messages that our new mega-church era is overrun with. Kids won't sit through, what I call the top-pop sermons of the neo-penecostal movement: Miracle, season, harvest, breakthrough, favor, destiny, and purpose. Only adults will chase that stuff. Kids want it real. Therefore, to keep them entertained without a true heart for their souls, you must do what is popular to them. You must mimic the world, follow the world's lead, and subscribe to the current trends and fads if you don't have a true call to minister. Therefore, the holy hip hoppers have found a way to masquerade as the answer while they sell their music and promote themselves. They sound just like the secular stuff. They look just like the secular stuff. They even listen to the secular stuff to get their sound and flavor. So, all they really do is build the desire for the kids to go out and get the real stuff but just do the imitation while at church, cause that's what is available!

    JB of Charisma Magazine -Jesus translated the gospel into terms that people could understand [i.e. parables and storytelling]. Do you feel this can be OK for our culture as well? Can hip-hop be used in this way? Why or why not? I think of it as the same as different publishing companies providing different translations of the Bible. I also think of Paul's verse that said he is all things to all men [1 Corinthians 9:22], except a backslider and unrepentant sinner, of course!

    G. Craige Lewis - First of all Jesus didn’t translate the Gospel He was the Gospel, the Gospel is the record of His life, death and resurrection. Secondly, He didn’t speak in parables so that people could understand. Ironically, it was just the opposite: He spoken in parables so that the truth would be hidden to those who thought themselves wise and prudent.

    Matt. 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

    Matt. 13:10 And the disciples came and said to Him, Why do You speak to them in parables?

    Matt. 13:11 Jesus answered them, To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been granted.

    Matt. 13:12 For whoever has, to him more shall be given, and he will have an abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has shall be taken away from him.

    Matt. 13:13 Therefore I speak to them in parables; because while seeing they do not see, and while hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.

    If anyone has seen any of our DVD’s or have ever heard me speak, they will know that we teach and preach that hip-hop is not just a genre of music. Hip-hop is a lifestyle. It is a manner of life. When a person comes to Christ He changes his lifestyle. Furthermore, hip hop's origin causes it to be useless when it comes to ministry. The word hip hop, according to the founders of the culture and the pioneers of the music art form, was first used in the clubs by the Sugar Hill Gang. Remember that song that said, hip hop, hippy to the hop, don't stop rocking ...? Well, that song was using the two words hip hop to describe women's booty's shaking to their beats in the club. Basically, in it's simplest form, hip hop means booty shaking! Your hips hop to the beats. Just look at the last twenty-years of hip-hop videos: the clothes changed, the music changed, even the lyrics changed but one thing that always remained the same is the gratuitous camera shot of girls hips hopping. We can quote “I became all things to all men …” all we want to; but I don’t think Paul ever meant that he would make the people’s booty shake to win them to Christ. Moreover, how in the world can you have holy booty shaking? Sure, the youth will come to shake their butts and throw up their hood signs, but will they be changed? We have seen millions of youth saved, set free, and delivered, and we have never used any kind of music to draw them.

    JB of Charisma Magazine - Since I have begun to research this article I have come across some interesting observations. If it is OK, I would like to explore these with you. It is said that hip-hop culture can be looked at the same as American culture. Both have their up sides and their down sides. If you showed someone from another country all the American strip clubs, bars, jails, and ghettos, perhaps they would see America in a terrible way. But if we showed that America also had churches, good will and charity organizations, sports, great universities [that is up for argument, but anyway] :-)), one would see American in a more realistic light. It has been said that the hip-hop culture is also the same way. The bad is very bad, but there are very positive things that come out of the culture -- creativity, holy hip-hop, political voice, a point of connection to express and release the pain of this generation. How do you feel about such comments/observations?

    G. Craige Lewis - Hip-hop is a sub-cultural movement, and cannot be compared to an ethnographic or demographic culture. A subculture is defined as a group with distinctive characteristics within a larger culture. This is why we say that hip-hop is at best, a subculture. Furthermore, its not a movement based on it's own concepts but it is a subculture that uses basic deconstruction of words and concepts to cause those that are apart of it to strive to be more visible in our present society. Initially, hip- was created out of lack and fatherless-ness. Young boys whose father's were absent began to adhere to the streets rather than abiding by the rules that govern success in society. The streets life became their expression and selling drugs, murdering, and fathering illegitimate children became their motes operandi since they had no authoritative male figures to look up to. This birthed the clothing, the language, and the social rejection that gave way for this subculture to emerge. All that we see now is a result of lack and fatherless-ness. Should we adapt to that? Or should we show a better way? Should we promote Christian gangsta's and holy thugs? Or should we teach them that the street life is not the only way there is? There is no way to compare the American culture with a street life subculture that was birthed out of rebellion and recklessness. You can't rebel against a culture that you are apart of and expect to excel in that cultures system. So, if you are not a rapper or DJ or some other occupation that is financed by the subculture of hip hop, then you won't make it in the true American culture. Rebellion will only label you an outcast or reject and cause you to be ridiculed and immobilized.

    JB of Charisma Magazine - Another thing I would like to better understand is that you mentioned that hip-hop comes from the devil and that it is satan's trick to cause people to worship him and receive his mark. Did you mean all hip-hop?

    G. Craig Lewis - Please allow me to restate your question referring to my earlier definition: Did I mean all booty-hop came from the devil? Hmmmm … ultimately yes. However, before I answer where hip-hop came from, let me clear up where it didn’t come from. Obviously, booty-hop did not come from God. I hear a lot people [mostly holy-hip-hoppers] trying to refer to hip-hop in its purest form. Referring to hip-hop as a pure form is like trying to refer to crack as a pure form. crack in itself is a hybrid of cocaine and other chemicals used to cut it. Yet the reason holy hip-hoppers try to make this quantum leap in logic, is so they can somehow say that hip-hop is a gift from God. One very popular Grammy nominated Holy-hip-hop group suggest that on judgment day God will judge us based on what we did with Hip-hop. God has nothing to do with hip-hop. The founding fathers of hip-hop all readily admit that men created hip-hop out of rebellion. So technically, man created hip-hop, but rebellion inspired it. The Bible clearly states that rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft. What spirit governs rebellion and witchcraft? The devil. So what about holy hip-hip? Surely, they distinguish themselves from the rebellious element of hip-hop don’t they? No, they can’t. Jesus said a kingdom divided against itself can’t stand. Holy hip-hoppers dress like secular hip-hoppers; behave like secular hip-hoppers [throwing up gang signs] and even listen to secular hip-hop so they can emulate them. At one of the holy hip-hop awards shows, a fight broke out east coast against west coast just like secular hip-hop.

    When most holy hip hop artists rap, they never refer to it as Holy, but just hip hop. Why is that? Because, there is only one subculture of hip hop and it is not holy! KRS-ONE, the lead prophet and spokesperson for hip hop says that Biggie was [the counterfeit] John the Baptist and Tupac Shakur was [the counterfeit] Jesus Christ and they died for our sins! He is revered and looked up to as the father of holy hip hop. He says in hip hop there are no gods and goddesses, we are the gods and goddesses! He even has T-Bone and BB Jay on his CD called Spiritually Minded, which is sold in Mardels, Family Christian, and all major Christian bookstores. He says he is a prophet and is here to teach the truth about Jesus. He says we are all Jesus Christs and should not worship him or call his name out, but be Jesus. He has Temples of hip hop all over the country and is meeting with holy hip hoppers to join together in efforts to promoting hip hop in the church! In our discussion with Ambassador of the Cross Movement, we urged him to call what he was doing Christian rap and not subscribe to hip hop culture. We asked him why couldn't he just rap for the Lord and use his ability to create rhymes for God without giving credit or props to hip hop. He said he couldn't. He is apart of the hip hop culture and would not denounce it. All rappers believe that rap is the music, but hip hop is the lifestyle or the way of life. This tells us that all hip hoppers have an agenda. Not to just rap, but to promote a rebellious way of life! Hip-hop takes what was once seen as bad and makes it good. Thugs, pimps, and gangstas was once seen as bad but hip-hop says that its good. Holy hip-hoppers are governed by this fundamental element and try to sanctify hip-hip by adding one word holy to everything. Now they say holy thugs, and gospel gangstas as if this will change the essence of hip-hop terms.

    JB of Charisma Magazine -And also, what did you mean when you later said that satan can't create anything, that he is anti-God and anti-creation? Just to clarify, it appeared that there was a contradiction in that point. Could you explain your complete thoughts on that?

    G. Craige Lewis - Satan did not create hip hop, but he used man to create it. Man has a unique ability that was not giving to satan. Man has God's attribute of creation. The devil took the music, the fatherless-ness, and the false god worship of the Zulu nation, and fused it together to form an anti-Christian movement of Hip Hop. I don't believe the devil created all the things that make up the movement, but he did mastermind the culmination of them all.

    JB of Charisma Magazine - Also, how would you respond to the argument that people may bring up from Colossians 1:16-17: For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist? I have heard this text used to defend that use of hip-hop to glorify God and to win people to Christ.

    G. Craige Lewis - There is NO biblical example of music ever being used to win souls to Christ or to evangelize. Music as a unique ability to coerce your mind and physiologically causes the release of pleasure chemicals in your brain. Because of this, it's hard for a person to make a good sound decision for Christ with the emotional trappings of music involved. Their decision will be based on feeling rather than fact. I believe that this accounts for much of the schizophrenic Christianity of the modern Church. Many churches heavily use music during their altar calls and people make a decision for Christ without being soberly minded. This leads to a conversion that is based on their emotions rather than their sound judgment. When they go back to their former environment and their emotions change they turn away from God. There is no biblical account of music being listed as a fold in the five-fold ministry or used by the apostles to draw a crowd. Jesus said no man cometh unless the Spirit of God draws him. If you notice, the only people that are really pushing hip hop in the churches are those that profit from it. Since when did the resale industry's method become our model for winning souls? When I speak, we never use music and hard core gang members, pimps, whores, drug dealers, drug users, etc. have come to Christ by the thousands without hip hop or any music!

    JB of Charisma Magazine -What do you think of holy hip-hop churches and ministries?

    G. Craige Lewis - What's next? What is the church going to do to reach the red-light district? Or the strippers? Are we going to dress up like whores and start whore ministries to reach them? Are we going to dress up like pimps to reach pimps or cross dress to reach homosexuals? [Believe me, some are probably behind the scenes trying to set up these movements even as we speak.] People need the power of the Holy Ghost to change them, not our methods. These are the purpose driven churches that are really people driven! They want big numbers and large offerings, so they turn to fleshly methods and the promotion of their own ideas rather than preaching the truth of the Word of God without compromise. If the holy hip hop churches and ministries were really affective, they would be in the streets with their kind and not in some building acting street! I want all pastors and ministries that are holding on and not giving in to this perverted move of carnality by embracing this demonic sub-culture to know something. You are not alone!

    There are hundreds of thousands of churches and ministries out there that are not giving in and just because you see the mega pastors and conferences trying to push this hip hop agenda, stick with what God is telling you. There is something wrong with boys sagging their pants and tattooing their bodies. There is something wrong with girls dressing and acting like prostitutes and hookers. There is something wrong with gospel gangsters and holy thugs wearing grillz and speaking broken English. Stay true to what you know God is saying. Teach the parents and they will effectively minister to their children. Don't sideswipe their authority by bringing in the very images and lifestyles that parents and the education system of America is trying to change.

    JB of Charisma Magazine - Thank you Elder Lewis for your responses. I see in one of your answers that you asked to one of the members of Cross Movement to call their music Christian rap. It appears from this dialog that you do not have a problem with someone rapping Christian lyrics -- just not subscribing to the hip-hop lifestyle. Is this assumption correct? Also, what style of music would you say is appropriate for Christians to listen to? Or maybe you wouldn't tell someone what to listen, but how would you teach someone to choose the kind of music that truly glorifies God?

    G. Craige Lewis - I am not against rap, or any style of music, but I do not believe that Christian music should exalt the performer at all. If it's Christian, or Christ-like, it should exalt only Christ. The holy hip hoppers promote themselves all in their music because hip hop is self expressive and self serving. That is against the plan of Christ, self denial! I believe a Christian should seek God in every way possible and deny their flesh in every way possible. This includes selfish music that causes us to move in an inappropriate manner or songs that lift up people as idols and do not lift up Christ. Self denial is the root of Salvation and must be practiced as Paul said, daily. So, with our investigative estimations of the gospel music industry being over 95 percent homosexual, self worship is being promoted in music and self promotion is key in being successful as an artists. The only example of this in the Bible is Lucifer, the angel that the bible says iniquity was found in him because of his much merchandising! It also states in Ezekial that the iniquity of his traffic [self promotion] got him cast out and labeled profane.

    Scriptures: Matthew 6: 31 – 33; Psalm 37:4

    Have you ever allowed petty differences to interfere with relationships? Marriages are breaking up and churches are breaking up and fellowship groups are breaking up and prayer partnership groups are breaking up Over petty things where people are not mature enough to say when it’s all said and done, “I need you.”

    You will run into Christian people and non-Christian people who inadvertently disrespect you or inadvertently make you feel bad.

    Let’s take a look at Hannah in I Samuel, chapters 1 and 2, who’s making her annual trip to Shiloh.

    According to scripture, Hannah has been weeping, praying and pouring out her heart to the Lord.

    Her mouth continues to move; Hannah’s voice is just above a whisper.

    Since you’re probably familiar with this scripture, you remember that Eli thought that Hannah was drunk because he saw her lips moving and she wasn’t speaking to anybody else. Eli could not figure out why Hannah was murmuring to herself. In what Eli had experienced in his life, the only reason a person muttered to herself or himself, was they’d had some wine.

    Eli made a presumption about Hannah.

    Okay, the key word here is presumption.

    Eli assumed what he thought, was so, based on what he saw -- that is, what he presumed about Hannah.

    Eli drew conclusions about Hannah without having any facts.

    Has anyone made presumptions about you and been wrong?

    Has anyone disrespected you and been dead wrong?

    Has anyone thought they knew what you were thinking, didn’t check with you to substantiate the facts, and they were wrong?

    Have you ever had somebody look at you and based on what they think they see, then reach conclusions and operate on assumptions about you – they even begin to talk to other people about you based on presumptions.

    You are aware there are some people who decide they know what is going on in your life based on what they think they perceive.

    Now remember, Eli was a called man of God.

    He was anointed and appointed by God – this is very important to remember.

    Presumption has no place in the kingdom of God, and Eli, a man of God in a position of authority, presumed.

    When you presume to know what people are thinking,
    When you presume why they are doing something,
    When you presume what’s really in their hearts, you dishonor the integrity of these very people.

    Eli said to Hannah, a precious woman of God, “How long have you been drunk? Get rid of your wine.”
    Eli did not ask Hannah any questions to gather facts and to be respectful of her.

    He did not ask, “Have you had some liquor Hannah [this one time]?”
    He did not ask, “Do you drink regularly?”
    He did not ask, “Are you in a drunken state Hannah; I’m concerned about you?”
    Eli presumed Hannah had been a habitual drinker.
    Now -- if we’re remotely honest, most of us would have been insulted and offended, especially since Hannah was tarrying before the Lord.

    Can’t you just imagine how Hannah could have felt?

    Do you wanna know why I had to type this article for you, beloved reader?
    Do you wanna know why I so respect Hannah, dear reader who’s still being healed and delivered just like me?

    Hannah was focused.
    Hannah was so focused, she didn’t forget her purpose.
    Hannah was so focused, she chose not to operate in offense.
    Hannah was so focused, she chose to interact with Eli in a posture of l-e-g-i-t-i-m-a-t-e submission.
    Key word = l-e-g-i-t-i-m-a-t-e.
    Hannah was so focused, she remembered and let Eli know that she needed him to achieve her goal.

    Beloved reader, you can’t afford to take the well-intentioned people in your life and begin to set them aside, and break fellowship and relationship with them, so that you end up isolated and unto yourself. The enemy knows when you are walking by yourself, you can get ambushed. You and I are prime prey for the enemy when we isolate and withdraw.

    When we have Christian companions walking with us, the enemy has to think twice about attacking us. He knows the power of agreement. He knows the power of unity. He, satan and his demons, takes the good intentions of people that cause us to be so offended and cause us to feel so disrespected that we dis-fellowship with these Christian and non-Christian people. Oouchh!
    Ecclesiastes 4

    Beloved reader, some of the people who are getting on your nerves, not all of them are your enemies. Some of them are people God has brought into your life, but you have to learn how to navigate. For example, Peninnah, was a bona fide enemy of Hannah. Eli was not Hannah's enemy, although she could have easily chosen to exclude or distance him from her life. Hannah knew Eli was a divinely appointed person in her life.

    Beloved reader, building good, solid relationships is not easy. You know this, I know. Don’t let taking flight, be your first tendency. It takes work, on your behalf, to be big enough, to be mature enough, to work through some of these l-e-g-i-t-i-m-a-t-e offenses. And yes, the person, the people, were wrong.

    We need the imperfect Christian people, God has appointed in our lives.
    We need the imperfect Christian people, who will presume sometimes and come to us in attack mode.
    We need one another desperately.
    You need the support of those God has raised up to be in your life – to achieve your destiny, to get through this mental valley your in.

    Do you have enough grace in you, to initiate the process and go get the issue straight with the person?
    If you don't, let's ask the Holy Spirit to impart more grace to us for a specific issue with a specific person.
    Oouch!

    As Christians, the last place we expect to be disrespected is in the church and by church members.

    But may I share something with you beloved reader, the majority of Christians who come for personal, confidential, integrated healing and deliverance ministry, have been disrespected or even abused repeatedly by Christians in leadership positions either in the local church or in the marketplace i.e. your neighborhood, your professional groups, your workplace, your exercise partners, your family, etc.

    If you’ve not read I Samuel 1 – 2, be encouraged to read it so you can know how Hannah respectfully and calmly explained to Eli her issue, her condition and her need of his help in her life. Hannah even goes a step farther, and reconciles. Oouch!
