How Acidophilus Works

Saturday, October 23rd, 2010

Those asking, “What is acidophilus?” have a variety of pleasant surprises ahead. Our family has found this friendly bacterium to help overcome staph infections, strep throat, abscessed teeth, an abscessed ulceration of the cornea, flu and stomach viruses, colds, whooping-cough, tetanus, botulism, and salmonella. We have found those uses in addition to the commonly known effects of acidophilus in reducing gas and bloating, stomach cramps, indigestion, gut rot, constipation, and acid reflux. Certainly, we could go on about dozens of other reasons you need these bacteria in your body.

What does acidophilus do?

Acidophilus works to build a healthy flora in your intestines. Most people who know about acidophilus think it only serves the purpose of aiding digestion. However, your whole life depends on your ability to digest food. People would not have to take so many vitamins and minerals if they could adequately access the God-given nutrients locked up in the whole foods we can eat. A poor digestive system will not access the healing properties of most foods. L. acidophilus bacteria, however, works with your body to digest the food you eat.

Scientists think of your gut as your second brain. People with sluggish digestive systems have sluggish minds. People with healthy bacteria in their intestines will thrive with alertness and endurance as they put to use the miracle nutrients in natural food.

What does acidophilus do for disease?

As we add content about diseases and sicknesses we have conquered, we will explain the dosages we use for certain symptoms. Often we use a whole tablespoon of acidophilus three times per day until the condition improves. We have taken this much for over a week at times for serious situations. Once, my wife had to take one tablespoon (12 billion CFU’s) every hour.

Think of disease as bad armies invading your body. When you take probiotics, such as acidophilus, you are deploying good armies to fight off the bad. My wife’s aunt beat of a horrible Candida-like yeast infection with high doses of acidophilus and a couple other supplements. We will not tell you how much to take, but from experience we know what works for us. Our midwife, a chiropractor, and a few other informed people have helped educate us on the disease-fighting properties of lactobacillus acidophilus. Post your experiences in the comment section below; we would love to know how this bacterium has made your life better.

What is the best kind of acidophilus?

We have tried several brands and have found NOW Foods’ acidophilus to be the best product for the money. Put it in the fridge as soon as you get it (it will survive the shipping time until then). We usually buy a dozen bottles at a time. We have found this to be one of the most useful health products for fighting a lot of issues with our children and ourselves. We have shopped around and found one of the lowest prices for acidophilus and all the other top-quality NOW Food products right here.

Uncle’s continual progress

September 26, 2010

My uncle had a late dinner. He ate some beets, which under the normal circumstances, a diabetic should not do, especially that late at night. Instead of his sugar being high, the next morning he tested in the upper 70’s!

September 30, 2010

My uncle saw the Coumadin doctor again, who still did not believe that it was possible for his levels to be where they are without the use of drugs. He’s to return again in two weeks. Every day his sugar test looks better and better.

October 9-12, 2010

Columbus Day weekend we were able to see my uncle for the first time since he found out he had cancer (we live about 1500 miles away). We attended the fair in Sandwich, NH, and as much as he wanted to cheat and buy a hamburger, he did not. It took great discipline to avoid all that wonderful smelling food. Maybe fried food does not tempt everybody, but it does him.

We came back to the family campgrounds for a wonderful turkey dinner my aunt had started before we left. I had brought along some green beans from our garden and added it to the meal.

I enjoyed seeing all the paper work with his diet. The details of the SWAMI are awesome. They list all the foods for defeating cancer as well as the foods that cause it to grow. I helped answer some of his questions about the diet and smooth out a few details.

The castor oil compress fascinated me the most because anyone can and should do this.  Buy cold-pressed castor oil so it does not go rancid and soak a piece of pure cotton or pure wool in it. Warm the cloth and lay it across your abdomen. Place a piece of plastic wrap on top of it and cover it with a heat pad or hot water bottle. Keep it on for an hour.

This castor oil compress can help cure:

Constipation

Uterine fibroids

Ovarian cysts (non-malignant)

Elevated liver enzymes

Irritable bowel syndrome

Ulcerated colitis

Crohn’s disease

esophageal reflux

Gall bladder inflammation

Gall stones

Insomnia

Headaches

Inflamed joints

Low white blood cell count from chemotherapy

Overall improvement
My Uncle looks excellent—as good as or better than he did a year ago. One would never know he is battling cancer. You do not need to suffer for years with cancer. You can live a normal life, as your body fights it off naturally. You do not have to be sick and throwing up from the time you of diagnosis until remission, or death.

The last evening there, my uncle’s son came over for a few moments. They were talking about whether cheating at the fair would have been a good idea or not. My cousin was quick to chime in, “No, Dad, don’t cheat.” I was glad to see that my uncle has good support from close family as he goes with alternative medicine and the genotype diet.

Uncle’s Cancer

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

My uncle received a liver cancer diagnosis on July 27, 2010. When his regular doctor called him in for a six month check up, they found one tumor the size of three apples on his liver. They said a vein running underneath the cancer would make surgery impossible. They also told him a mother tumor was feeding the current tumor, but they could not find it yet. He saw an oncologist a week later. She said this rare cancer was out of her area of ability.

At his church that Sunday, they had a powerful service! When my Uncle went up for with his pastor, the presence of God engulfed him. He stood there, as the Lord washed him thoroughly with His Spirit. He said he had never felt the Lord so strongly.

A week after seeing the oncologist, he went to Boston to see specialists. The doctors said a mother tumor existed but they could not find it. They said this because this kind of tumor does not grow unless a mother tumor feeds it. My uncle baffled the doctors when he told them he had no pain. To have such a huge tumor and it not be causing pain is a bit mystifying. To God be the glory!

They told him the therapies that were available:  Chemotherapy, radiation, then operate and blast what was left of the cancer. In addition to the normal side effects (hair loss, sickness), they said he would experience permanent numbness in his fingers and toes. Even after the burn, slice, and poison method, they only gave him a 20% chance to live for 5 years! If he did nothing for his cancer, they gave him 2 years to live.

At 65, having 3 healthy grandchildren he would like to stay alive for, he decided he would rather live 2 good years than 5 miserable ones. He figured he would rather enjoy the last bit of life he had with his family, if this was his time.

However, he began to look toward the natural therapies. What he discovered amazed us. More on this topic next time.
