Well I just spent the whole week nursing my kids back to health and apart from that I’ve been trying to keep fit by jogging, swimming and doing a little weight training.
Oh and if you’re wondering why the unusual title for this post, well I’ve been researching on these products and trying them out. Also remember in my earlier post I was trying out that tinture well I am happy to say that it truly works for me and my other half! However I’ve decided not to advertise the product on this blog simply because it needs to be used with caution since it contain St John’s Wort. However if you’re interested, then email me and I will give you the full product name and link.
This once a week Deodorant is amazing because it really works! I’ve been using it for a month now with no side effect whatsoever, probably because it is water based, alcohol-free,grease-free,colourless,fragrance-free and stain-free. It is available at Guardian pharmacy at $3.90 SGD for a pack of 3.
Now for this product, I am a little skeptical because of the way it is suppose to work. Also initially I likened the change in colour of the pads to that of an apple left out in the open to oxidize but how then do you explain that according to user accounts that the colour of the these very same pads lightens out with regular usage? Then there is some accounts that the used pads were sent for lab testing and traces of metals etc. were found which was not present prior to use. Of course this fact can also be just a claim. Anyhow I personally have used it for 3 days now though I find little or no difference, then again I do not have pre-existing condition of pain etc. Anyhow madame on the other hand has, so will let you know in a weeks time.
Okay for now here is a little of what I’m talking about…
Bio Detox patches contain natural ingredients including the Agaricus mushroom from the jungles of Brazil. The Agaricus mushroom contains ample amounts of Beta Glucans – the major ingredient in natural cancer controlling substances – a steroid that can regulate the increase of cancerous cells.
Dry powder in the patch also contains chitosan, bamboo sap, eucalyptus sap, ionic (absorbable) tourmaline minerals that contain negative ions, and saururus chenesis – the first plant to grow at the atomic bomb site in Hiroshima – and other potent plant ingredients.
For hundreds of years Eastern medical studies have held the view that toxins progress towards the lower extremities in the body during the day. Assisted by gravity they accumulate from the tips of the toes to the ankles. That’s why Bio Detox patches work best when placed on the soles of the feet. There is also another Asian expression that says aging comes from the foot.
The ingredients work together to draw out the toxic build-up in your feet, and in other parts of the body. The patches can be used at any time but preferably overnight as you sleep as they enhance blood circulation and improve sleep. We recommend wearing socks to prevent accidentally kicking the patches off while you sleep.
Bio Detox patches can be attached to other parts of the body and acupuncture points where there are pains, health issues or swelling to remove toxins from the area. At the same time the patches should be applied to the soles of the feet for maximum detoxification as there may not be as much moisture removed from other parts of the body.
For knee problems, place patch on the back of the knee.
For eye problems, place on the back of the ears or on the temple, but not on the eye.
For wounds and bruising (excluding cuts and eyes)
Bio Detox patches can be used to help reduce inflammation and pain on the affected parts. Apply patch either side of the spine on the back of the neck underneath the ears but above the lymph nodes for mouth disorders or ear problems.
The effect of the Bio Detox patch can usually be seen or felt sooner with more acute diseases, sometimes in a few days. It may however require a longer time to see the effect on less chronic diseases like lethargy and fatigue. Bio Detox patches can take longer to work on some people, especially if they have been on medication for a long time, but if the patch is still dry after use, they can be re-used.
MIP Bio Detox Foot Pads contains tourmaline minerals that contain negative ions. Negative ions are oxygen atoms with an extra electron and they can help you feel better. Remember that feeling you’ve experienced near a waterfall or high in the mountains? Those are two places that thousands of negative ions occur. They create a positive effect on human biochemistry and Bio Detox pads allow negative ions to work their magic. The special sap used in Bio Detox increases the vibration of negative ions which can then be absorbed easily by the skin.
Far infrared generation, the warmth of healing.
Our tissues normally produce infrared energy for warmth and tissue repair. At times the infrared energy in our tissues may require a boost to a higher level to ensure the fullest healing possible for tissue repair. Our Bio Detox Foot Pads have been scientifically proven to produce warmth from Far infrared generation.
The Bio Detox Foot Pad uses the highest quality wood vinegar after natural purifying. Wood and bamboo vinegar are dried for a period of 8 months in order to remove the water substance. Next, to remove the impurities, a filtration process is applied four times. Lastly, the drying process is applied again for a period of 8 months to obtain a complete pure wood and bamboo vinegar. The finished product of the drying process is outstandingly pure.
A colleague introduced this to me in veg cap supplement form and I still can’t believe how cheaply available it is for us because of our neighbouring country Malaysia! Anyhow I am still evaluating this product but it is quite amazing considering the history of Nigella Sativa and it’s uses.
Nigella Sativa is traditionally known in Middle Eastern countries as “Habbat al Barakah” – ‘The Blessed Seed’, due to it’s powerful healing qualities for many ailments. It has been used for thousands of years in the Middle East as well as ports of Asia and Africa and is now well known in the USA and Europe.
Nigela Sativa can be compared to Echinacea, the well known immune booster but works in a very different way, which makes it even suitable for diseases of the immune system itself, eg. allergies; MS; TB; cancer; aids etc, where Echinacea could have detrimental effects.
The oil of nigella sativa is so beneficial due to it’s content of over a hundred components such as aromatic oils, trace elements, vitamins and enzymes. It contains 58% of essential fatty acids including omega 6 and omega 3. These are necessary for the forming of Prostaglandin E1 which balances and strengthens the immune system giving it the power to prevent infections and allergies and control cronic illnesses. Healthy cells are protected from viruses thus inhibiting tumours. Blackseed oil also contains about 0.5 – 1.5% volatile oils including nigellone and thymochinone which are responsible for its anti-histamine, anti-oxidant, anti-infective and broncho-dilating effect.
As an oil it is digested through the lymphatics consequently purifying and unblocking the lymphatic system.
Nigella Sativa oil was found in Tutankhamen’s tomb. It is known to have been used by Cleopatra for it’s health and beauty giving qualities.
The Greek physician Dioskorides used Blackseed to treat headaches, nasal congestion, toothache and intestinal parasites. Hypocrates, the grandfather of todays scientific medicine regarded Nigella Sativa as a valuable remedy in hepatic and digestive disorders.
Ibn Sina, the author of the Canon of Medicine, one of the most famous books in the history of medicine recommends Blackseed stimulates the metabolism and to recover from dispiritedness and lethargy.
Ayurvedic medicine appreciates its many qualities and bitter, warming, stimulant nature. Here it is used or a wide variety of diseases like haemorrhoids, hepatitis, fever, diarrhoea, cough, tapeworm, to mention only a few of them.
The earliest written reference to Blackseed is found in the book of Isiah in the Old Testament 28:25-27. It is most famous for the saying of the holy prophet Muhammad (sws), ‘Hold on to use of the Blackseed, for it has a remedy for every illness except death.’ The wording ‘hold onto’ indicates a long term use.
Since 1959 there have been over 200 different studies at universities and laboratories. At the Cancer Research Laboratory of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, USA, one of the largest experimental studies so far proved that Nigella Sativa oil had enormous success in tumour therapy without the negative side effects of common chemo-therapy. They found that it increased the growth rate of bone marrow cells by a staggering 250% and it inhibited tumour growth by 50%. It stimulated immune cells and raised the interferon production which protect cells from the cell destroying effect of viruses. They confirmed the strongly anti-bacterial and anti-micotic effects and that it has an effect in lowering the blood sugar level which is essential for the treatment of diabetes.
Recently independent clinical studies published in the archives of Aids also established some astonishing effects of blackseed on the defence system by improving the ration between helper t-cells and suppresser t-cells by a significant amount while also enhancing the natural killer cell activity.
Experiences of doctors in Munich displayed that 70% of patients with allergic conditions, among them being pollen and dust allergies, asthma and neuro-dermitis were cured by Nigella Sativa.
