Xango Juice:Truly Unique Products with Natural,Universal Appeal!

Having tried almost everything that she had come across in the last 20 years, Rhonda Lee (Crystal Dreaming 1991 - 1997) believes that she has finally found a product that gives a great deal of goodness to the body in the form of a natural fruit juice supplement called Xango. She also believes it make logical sense for a healthy person -- of any age -- to begin drinking Mangosteen right away, in order to give the strong antioxidants within the fruit a chance to help preserve their healthy well-being as much as possible?

The fruit this juice is based on is called Mangosteen, an exotic tropical fruit which is also the national fruit of Thailand. It is called the Queen of fruits there & in many other Asian countries. The local people in these countries have been using the Mangosteen as a folk remedy for treating such things as dysentery, malaria, tuberculosis & skin problems for hundreds of years.

What can you expect from Xango ?

  • The medical properties of the Mangosteen juice are well-documented by empirical, laboratory, scientific, medical, and experiential methods.
  • The Mangosteen fruit is not system-specific, but pan-systemic -- in other words, good the for WHOLE body.
  • Over 40 different Xanthones have been found in the Mangosteen, which are chemically beneficial molecules, each having specific leading properties.
  • These health promoting Xanthones help the body in so many ways -- healthy foods help us age more successfully.
  • These free radical scavenger/fighters stop pain, reduce swelling and inflammation, and help in the body's healing process.
  • The "strong" antioxidants strengthen cell walls.
  • They kill bacteria, viruses, and fungus.
  • They stop the attack in DNA and even have restorative properties.
  • They help the mind think better, adapt better, and give a sense of well-being (anti-depressant).
  • They stop the damage of brain cells so they grow and divide properly and help the cell walls and the neuro transmitters function properly.
  • They aid with Alzheimers, and all forms of memory loss.
  • They help in the battle against degenerative diseases like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and all forms of brain malfunctions.
  • They help the VISION process: cataracts, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and other forms of vision loss may be prevented.

The Winter Blues: Herbal Medicine to the Rescue with Miriam Young!

Due to our traveling community, new and exotic viruses are being delivered to our doorsteps - those viruses that were once isolated only to certain parts of the globe. And due to the evolution of microbes, which are now resistant to our most commonly used antibiotics; we have never needed an alternative therapy more.

Physicians cannot prescribe antibiotics, in the treatment of viral infections, for they are ineffective. Animals and poultry are fed antibiotics in their feedstuff and consequently meat-eaters have been overwhelmed with antibacterial substances that they ingest. Consequently more and more members of the pubic are not responding to the use of antibiotics. . .

No one enjoys getting the flu (viral or bacterial) in the company of sleepless nights with sinus congestion, aching limbs, fatigue, dizziness, green/yellow mucous and/or headaches. What can be done to prevent and cure influenza? Can it be prevented? And do we really want to prevent it? . .

The Flu Vaccination "There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza. The producers of these vaccines know that they are worthless, but they go on selling them anyway." Dr J. Anthony Morris (former Chief Vaccine Control Officer at the FDA.) . .

Viruses are living and are evolving. Every couple of weeks old viruses are becoming new viruses. This is what in the scientific world is known as the Antigenic Shift and Drift. The US Federal government's Center for Disease Control says that influenza viruses are a blend of many different strains and types of viruses. This year's vaccine is based on last year's influenza strain. In history, no influenza strain has ever repeated itself, or is ever the same. If you made a vaccination right now to protect yourself, the exact virus that is spreading right now, by the time you manufactured the vaccination would have already shifted and drifted many times and mutated into a completely different virus. . .

The flu vaccination has never been proven to actually work. Most experts now agree that whether we get the flu or not is based on our immune system's antibody response and not on medical intervention. Many medical experts today believe that the influenza vaccine actually attacks and weakens your immune system and makes you even MORE susceptible to getting infected with influenza. Researching what is actually in flu vaccinations may surprise you. Some experts conclude that there is a definite link between vaccination and Alzheimer's disease due to the mercury and aluminum contained within them. .

What's in Flu Vaccinations?

  • lene Glycol/Atomobile Anti-Freeze
  • Carbolic Acid / A toxic poison
  • Formaldehyde Embalming Fluid, causes cancer
  • Aluminum Causes Alzheimer's disease, Seizures and cancer
  • Mercury Extremely toxic heavy metal Kills brain and immune cells

    Self-awareness and the Holistic Approach As human beings we can spend a lot of time feeling pretty miserable when sick and expend a lot of energy fighting the dis-ease and avoiding the reality of our situation. It is reasonable and realistic to catch a cold or flu once or twice a year. If there is a fever, it is there for a reason - to help burn off the toxins and bacteria. Do not panic, the majority of fevers are a natural and normal process of getting well, and demonstrate that the immune system is doing its job properly.

    There are times when people, particularly the elderly become dangerously ill with the influenza virus. They must of course seek immediate medical attention. However for the majority of us, the flu often represents a time of great personal change and turning point in our life. We often catch the flu at the changing of seasons and should not suppress it. Continual and/or extended bouts of flu may reflect a fear of opening ourselves up to new opportunities and influences of others. Let go of the fear of being 'out there' and what lies ahead. .

    Accept the fact that you have the flu, relax and rest as this approach is much more likely to aid in complete recovery. The 'solider on' approach only further depletes your reserves and puts extra pressure on an already compromised immune system. Classically, people who continually push themselves through flues and illness may end up with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. .

    Our immune system holds T cells in the thymus gland near the heart. When we have thoughts of worry, unhappiness, doubt and confusion, the energy of the thought breaks down these T cells and leaves us open to a bacterial invasion. Observe your thoughts and see what they are up to! .

    Herbal Medicine To The Rescue
    The following herbs may be taken propherlactially, to prevent a cold/flu during winter or taken during the onset of a cold/flu to reduce duration and severity of symptoms. Vist your local Herbalist/Naturopath and get a prescription made up especially for your flu, be it viral or bacterial in origin. Avoid dairy products (milk, cheese, ice cream, yoghurt etc) for at least 10 days. The beauty of herbal medicine is that it stimulates your body's own inherent mechanisms to heal itself and do not supress symptoms or push them further into the body, as can many orthodox medications.
  • Garlic: First on the list, as garlic is so readily available to everyone and has proven anti-bacterial, anti-parasitic, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties. It is specific for sinusitis, and general catarrhal states. Chop one medium size clove up into tiny pieces and swollow with water like tiny tablets Take once per day before breakfast as a preventative measure and more often during flu. Peppermint tea (and parsley) can help neutralise 'garlic breath' and also works wonders for aches, pains and fevers in it's own right. Garlic helps prevent the build-up of cholesterol and reduces high blood pressure. Historically, garlic oil has been used for ear infections.
  • Cayenne Pepper: Cayenne, or red pepper is your common everyday household red chili pepper. Cayenne is a powerful antiseptic and works effectively for the relief of pain and for these purposes can work on throat infections and laryngitis. There is nothing that works better for when you want to sweat out a cold or flu than drinking hot garlic, ginger, lemon and cayenne pepper tea - as hot as you can stand! Cayenne pepper encourages expectoration and decongests the lungs as well as the sinuses.
    Try popping one dessertspoon of cayenne pepper into the bathtub for a really powerful sweat! Cayenne also contains high levels of vitamins C and vitamin A. Taking cayenne, promotes circulation, allowing more oxygen to more cells. This promotes better health all round.
  • Echinacea: Echinacea is the world's most popular cold and flu remedy, particularly in Europe. Take Echinacea at the first sign you are coming down with a cold/flu. Echinacea wards off the common cold, lessens its severity and shortens the length of symptoms. Echinacea activates the number of infection-fighting white blood cells, which help to kill the cold and flu virus. Echinacea is also a powerful anti-inflammatory and lymphatic herb, making it specific for tonsilitis and infective sore throat. I have known many a case where mothers, having struggled with ill children for months, eventually discover Echinacea and have put recurring tonsilitis to a complete stand-still and avoided tonsilectomy. There is a specific type of Echinacea for children which is extracted in glycerol (plant sugar) which kids absolutely love.
  • Olive Leaf: Overlooked by Western medicine until recently, olive leaf extract kills nearly every type of disease-producing microorganism. From immune disorders to the common cold, from Epstein-Barr virus to Genital Herpes, from Hepatitis to Candida albicans and Hepatitis, olive leaf extract is effective against them all, eliminating viruses, fungi, bacteria and other parasites that cause disease. The amazingly successful results experienced with olive leaf extract throughout Hungary, has instigated the Hungarian government to adopt the herb for its Medicare system as the official anti-infectious disease remedy. Germany, Italy, Russia, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia are all currently investigating the efficacy of olive leaf extract.
  • St John's Wort: St John's Wort also has significant antiviral activity against enveloped viruses. Enveloped viruses include HIV, influenza, cytomegalovirus-virus, cold sores, herpes genitalis, shingles, glandular fever, chicken pox and viral hepatitis. I have also used St John's Wort successfully in treating chronic fatigue patients where there has been a history of viral infections.
  • Pau d'arco: Pau d'arco or Taheebo (Tabebuia avellanedae) is an indigenous tree to South America. The Brazilian Indians have used the inner bark of Pau d'arco for over 1000 years. They have used Pau d'arco for treating dysentery, fever, malaria, carcinomas and stomach ulcers and topically (externally) for treating skin diseases, fungal infections and skin cancers. The first time Pau d'arco was ever used in western medicine was at the Santo Andre Hospital in Brazil, in the treatment of cancer in 1960.
    One of the main reasons viruses are so difficult to treat is that they invade and use our body cells to sustain their existence. Once a virus has invaded, they are difficult to eradicate without also damaging the host cell. Studies have tested lapachol, one active constituent from Pau d'arco and found that it inhibits various strains of virus including some types of influenza and herpes viruses and the Epstein-Barr virus (causing glandular fever.) It makes you wonder what the whole herb, with its thousands of active constituents is capable of!

What is Reconnective Healing: and The Reconnection!

Reconnective Healing is a unique, energy healing process that utilizes powerful new frequencies to allow for the healing of the body, mind and spirit. Clients simply lie in a relaxed position on a table while the practitioner gently moves her hands over and around her client`s body. The practitioner is able to connect with a new bandwidth of healing frequencies and clients in this presence are able to come back into balance. A return to balance facilitates healing. Clients report feeling deeply relaxed, warm and light. For some, healing is rapid and transformative; for others it is more subtle and takes a little longer for the healing to unfold.

*Reconnective Healing sessions take 45 minutes.

The Reconnection activates new axiatonal lines that reconnect us to the grid lines of the earth and our very essence. Clients who have The Reconnection often report life-changing experiences.

*The Reconnection is facilitated in two sessions on consecutive days; sessions take 45 minutes.

Reconnective Healing and The Reconnection were first introduced through Dr Eric Pearl in 1993 after he observed his clients healing from numerous conditions including cancers, birth disfigurements, Cerebral Palsy and AIDS-related diseases. Within two years Dr Pearl left his highly successful practice and began teaching healing.

Desley Murphy, personally trained by Dr Pearl, offers Reconnective Healing and The Reconnection at THE HEALING ROOM, Cedar Creek, via SAMFORD. For an appointment please phone 3289 4201 or 0410 570 271 or clickhere to receive Reconnective Healing sessions FREE with every Personal Reconnection!
