Want to be a real doctor, not a “practitioner” then treat people and learn of naturapathy, Natural medicine. Kill big pharma! Eliminate wasteful, addictive, evil and hurtful jobs like pharmacies, and drug companies….it’s time for a real change…we don’t need the gov’t to take these guys out…just stop our dependency on drugs that have a double standard, while (treating only) treating an issue, the drug gives you five or more other issues; potentially including death. Beware of Greeks giving gifts…all meds are Greek names. Ever wonder why??? Something to think about. Nothing against Greeks mind you 🙂 I love Greek food, and my first job EVER when I was a lad, I worked for a Greek restaurant owner. Good guy!
…..6 Kitchen Ingredients That Work Like Medicines
Honey has been used in medical practices for as far back as 4,000 years ago. In fact, it was used to treat imbalances in the body and indigestion in traditional Ayurvedic medicine. Currently, modern medicine is proving once again the varied medical uses of honey. If you have heard of food as medicine, honey can be a great substitute for sugar because it does not carry the negative health impact that table sugar has. Another benefit of honey is that it can be used as a cough remedy but do remember that it is not advisable for children under one-year-old to consume honey. Here is a quick list of honey’s potent medicinal properties:
- Can fight infection from a bacterium that causes severe diarrhea.
- It lines the stomach and esophagus thereby reducing acid reflux.
- Honey can be used topically to treat wounds………..

‘I find it humorous sometimes that even the most mundane occurrences can have an impact on our awareness.
My wife, daughter, and I moved into our home nine years ago and we spent a lot of time and energy in the yard to get it looking like it does today. We live on a corner, higher than street level, and the entire side of the yard is encased by a professionally built rock wall. The front of the house though is another story because instead of a wall along the sidewalk the rocks appear to be just thrown up onto the dirt as if someone were in a hurry to finish.
We did the best we could with what we had to work with and called this area our ‘rock garden’. Whenever we had left over flowers or plants, Denise or I would stick them out front, just to bring some color to the area.
I still do all of my own yard work, even the dreaded weed-pulling. After putting on my knee pads I assume the position to clear the yard of weeds, even in the rock garden.
Last summer I had reached the end of the rock garden and found a tiny little plant that I could not immediately identify. I knew I didn’t plant it and Denise claimed that she didn’t either. We decided to let it continue growing until we could figure out what it was.
Weeks passed and as I made my way back to the mystery plant, it appeared to be a Sunflower. It was spindly looking with a tall skinny stalk and only one head on it. I decided to baby it along and weed around it. As I pulled rocks from the area to get to the weeds, I noticed something unusual. The Sunflower had not started where I saw the stalk begin. It actually had begun under a big rock and grown under and around it to reach the sun.
That’s when I realized that if a tiny little Sunflower didn’t let a big rock stand in its way of developing, we too have the capability of doing the same thing. Once our environment begins to see that we believe in ourselves like that little Sunflower, we can attain the same nourishment and nurturing as well.
First, we need to believe in God knowing we have the capabilities in us to walk in His blessings regardless of the conditions of the world around us. Like the Sunflower, it knew it had the capability to overcome its obstacle because it is aware of its Creator and had faith it would succeed.
Stand tall like the Sunflower and be proud of who and what you are and the environment will begin to support you. You will find a way to go under or around your big obstacle in order to reach an expected end (or beginning rather; or for some, a continuance).’
Matthew 6 :28-30 “And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?“
There is a special place in life, that needs my humble skill,
a certain job I’m meant to do, which no one else can fulfill.
The time will be demanding and the pay is not too good
and yet I wouldn’t change it for a moment – even if I could.
There is a special place in life, a goal I must attain,
a dream that I must follow, because I won’t be back again.
There is a mark that I must leave, however small it seems to be,
a legacy of love for those who follow after me.
There is a special place in life, that only I may share,
a little path that bears my name, awaiting me somewhere.
There is a hand that I must hold, a word that I must say,
much love that I must give for there are tears to blow away.
There is a special place in life that I was meant to fill,
a sunny spot where flowers grow upon a windy hill.
There is a breeze blowing on a cloudy day that I must feel,
a moment in time to absorb; a picture surreal.
There’s always a tomorrow and the best is yet to be,
and somewhere in this world, I know there is a place for me./
2 Tim 1:9 “Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, …..”
1 Thess 2:12 “That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory. ”
Gal 5:13 “For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. “
One cold November morning I noticed a sunflower coming into bloom on my patio. It was growing up from a crack between the house and the paving stones underneath the bird feeder.
The little flower stood straight up. It had a thin stem with mottled green leaves and a small, round burst of bright yellow on top. It would never have made it into any flower shows, that’s for sure. It was stunted, its bloom a crush of petals squashed together around its center. They stuck up and out like a spiky-hair-do, the biggest one no more than three-quarters of an inch long. It was a scrawny, misshapen little flower, and to me it was beautiful.
Beside it stood its much larger, and at one time, much grander sibling. A big, broad, perfectly formed flower once adorned the main stem. Five perfectly formed miniature versions of itself branched out below like accessories accentuating its beauty. But now, its leaves were crinkled and brown, the stalk yellowed like hay, the dry wilted flowers hanging down in petrified stillness. It had a different beauty now.
I sat and looked at these two flowers, and I wondered why I enjoyed them so much. I asked myself what they meant to me. The answer was very clear. They were a reminder to me of the mighty, unstoppable power of the life force. I looked at the little flower standing so proud and thought about will and determination, the carriers of that force. I remembered that struggles can be won and great things can be achieved against all odds… summer sunflowers do grow outside in the cold, dark days of early winter.
Looking at the splendor of each flower, I saw the glory of life past and the promise of life now, and I was reminded that renewal is a necessary part of life. It is what keeps life on this planet vibrant and alive. I was reminded renewal is a constant. Life never stops. And as I watched the bright splash of yellow dancing with abandon against the gray, windy skies, I remembered that renewal carries with it the seeds of hope and great joy.
In this world there is strife. There is hardship, and there is suffering. There is inequity. There is injustice. There is also abundant beauty amidst it all. And within that beauty there are reminders tucked away everywhere, encouraging us to persist, to strive, and to bring our visions of another world, a world to come. We have only to open our hearts and look, and we will see them.
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
2 Peter 3:13
“Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.”
