¿Qué Tiene que Ver Conmigo? por Teófila Gottfried

¿Qué tiene que ver conmigo lo que dice la Biblia? ¿Sirve en estos días lo que se cuenta allí? ¿No son anticuadas sus enseñanzas? ¿Qué tengo que ver yo con gente que vivió hace dos, cuatro o seis mil años? ¿Es posible aplicar a mi vida algo de lo que dice la Biblia? ¿O los Diez Mandamientos es todo lo que enseña? En tal caso ¿puedo considerarme "buena persona" si los cumplo? Lo que leemos en la Biblia tiene que ver con todos los seres humanos, sean cristianos o judíos, ateos o agnósticos, budistas, musulmanes o adherentes a alguna de las filosofías o nuevas religiones que surgen en el mundo. ¿Por qué?

Herbs: Natural Sources of Minerals

yellowDock.jpg

Many Americans are learning of the importance that minerals play in preventing and curing disease. Unfortunately, just as many have been left disappointed when they experienced the unpleasant effects often observed when they took any form of minerals including colloidal ones and/or trace minerals. Some developed severe headaches, red eyes, upset stomach and other maladies. It's been said repeatedly that nutrients should be delivered through foods and drinks, not from man's chemically processed substances. There are plenty of natural sources of minerals that are freely provided by God.

For the people who simply can't buy and/or grow organic foods, getting an adequate supply of minerals through diet may prove very difficult. It's often forgotten that many herbs serve not only as medicines but also as foods rich in minerals, including trace minerals. These natural sources of minerals can be prepared in such a way as to literally take them as a truly all natural mineral supplement that also delivers trace minerals without side effects. Which herbs are rich in minerals? How are they prepared and taken?

Specific Natural Sources of Minerals



Significant amounts of calcium are found in Horsetail and Comfrey. Please note: DO NOT TAKE COMFREY INTERNALLY. Comfrey powder can be used to brush the teeth to help provide them with needed calcium. Some have reported that this halts or greatly reduces the process of tooth decay, when a healthy diet free of white sugar is followed. Again, comfrey is one of the many natural sources of minerals. But, it should NOT be consumed internally. Iron is found in significant amounts in Burdock, Dandelion, and Yellow Dock. Yellow dock tends to have the highest content. Other herbs supply magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium, selenium, silicon, sulfur, zinc, and trace minerals (Penny C. Royal, Herbally Yours [Provo, UT: Sound Nutrition, 1988], 105-106).

Some herbalists suggest formulating your own herbal supplement by combining specific herbs that are natural sources of minerals. Fortunately, God provides more than one herb for the same condition, or that offers similar nutrients so that when one isn't available, a substitute may be used. A combination of the following natural sources of minerals makes a highly nutritious blend from which to make a decoction. That combination includes: parsley root and leaf, yellow dock, nettles, irish moss, horsetail, watercress and kelp. Equal parts of these plants provide easily assimilated iron, calcium, silicon, magnesium, potassium, sulfur, iodine, zinc and the trace minerals (Michael Tierra, C.A., N.D., The Way of Herbs [New York: Pocket Books, 1989], 86). The formula in the book, The Way of Herbs includes comfrey as one of the natural sources of minerals to use. However, it is NOT safe to consume unless you really understand what you are doing and have consulted beforehand with your physician.

Horsetail may be substituted with Oat straw, which is not as "potent." Yellow Dock can be substituted with Dandelion and/or Burdock. However, it's best to include yellow dock. In his book, Mr. Tierra instructs readers to gently simmer equal parts of the herb in the proportion of 4 ounces to a quart of water until the volume of liquid is reduced by half. The decoction is then to be strained, the liquid kept and the herbs covered with water again and simmered for ten minutes and then strained. The first and second batches of liquid are combined and simmered until half the volume is evaporated. Finally, an equal amount of blackstrap molasses is added. The recommended dosage is one tablespoon three to four times per day.

Those who do not wish to make quite so much should simply reduce the amount of herbs, water, and molasses used. Mr. Tierra recommends the herbal mineral formula for persons with deficient and anemic conditions.

There is a good variety of books on herbal medicine for people to regain the health knowledge their ancestors possessed in the days when there were few doctors to be found. However, the deceptive teachings of Yin and Yang theory, Feng Shui, Acupuncture, and many other philosophies and practices from which the New Age movement was born, should be kept at bay. When someone has cancer, is HIV positive, or suffers from hepatitis, valuable time is lost attempting to heal "bad karma" instead of dealing with a real physical problem. People have gone to an early grave trusting in bizarre "arts" from the East, a trust that originated with fascination with anything new and different.

These natural sources of minerals have proven to be of tremendous benefit for the people who chose to return to the God-given medicines found in Earth. One mistake that many people who are looking into natural medicine make is an attempt to continue a health-destroying life style such as smoking while "getting by" with natural medicines. When you abuse your body, no medicine whether natural or chemical is going to serve as an easy "out" of suffering the consequences.

Natural sources of minerals are not weak sources of minerals. Remember, "natural" does not mean "weak." Be careful with supplements of any kind. A headache can be one of the first signs of too much iron. Just as having too little iron is bad, so is having too much iron.
