An Amazing Dose of Hope

Occasionally I am strongly compelled to share with you a teaching from Pastor Joseph Prince ( ).   Throughout my awakening and healing I’ve been led to several good Christian teachers each of whom seem to have taken me a bit higher in my faith level.  Joseph Prince somehow came across my spiritual radar screen this year and his teaching as given my own faith a quantum leap–literally.   I suggest you consider subscribing to his daily devotionals of which the following is one.   His teaching always encompasses wisdom regarding physical healing.  I believe you will be blessed and your faith with soar from the foundation of hope it offers.   

Ruth 4:15

And may he be to you a restorer of life and a nourisher of your old age…

Famine impoverished the life of Naomi, an Israelite. But it was the deaths of her husband and two sons that left her completely destitute. (Ruth 1:1–5) Or so she thought, until Boaz, who was a wealthy and close relative, entered her life.

As her kinsman-redeemer, Boaz married Ruth, Naomi’s widowed daughter-in-law. And through that union, Naomi had a grandson. The birth of her grandson gave her a new lease of life, causing the womenfolk in her village to declare that the restorer of life and the nourisher of her old age had come into her life. (Ruth 4:14–16)

Boaz is a picture of Jesus, our kinsman-redeemer. Jesus became our kinsman when He was born into this world as one like us. And He became our Redeemer when He paid with His life and blood at the cross to redeem us.

Jesus gave Himself to us as our restorer of life and nourisher of our old age. When the restorer of life is in our lives, what we have lost can be restored. (Joel 2:25−26) And with the nourisher of our old age in us, our bodies can be gloriously renewed even though we advance in our years.

That is why when Moses died at the age of 120, his eyes were not dim and his natural vigor was not diminished. (Deuteronomy 34:7) Caleb, at 85 years old, could still drive out the giants from the land. God had literally nourished his body and made it strong for war. (Joshua 14:11) Sarah was certainly rejuvenated in her old age by God for she was still desirable to a king at the age of 90. (Genesis 20:1–2) God even renewed her womb. She received strength to conceive seed (Hebrews 11:11), giving birth to Isaac in her old age.

Beloved, God is outside of time and your faith in Him brings you into this timeless zone. There, what the years have stolen will be restored. And even as your years increase, you will not grow weak and weary because the restorer of life and nourisher of your old age is in you!

Another Look at the Budwig Protocol

The Budwig Protocol was developed by German researcher and medical practitioner, Dr Johanna Budwig as she built on the work of nobel winner Dr. Otto Warburg.

Dr. Johanna Budwig was one of Germany’s top biochemists as well one of the best cancer researchers throughout all of Europe. Born in 1908 and lived to be 95. She has been nominated seven times for the Nobel Prize. Dr. Budwig is also a published author, holds a Ph.D. in Natural Science, a medical practitioner degree, and is one of the greatest authorities on diet and its relation to health and well-being. She is still well respected in many medical circles.

Dr. Budwig’s work focused on fatty acids as she searched for what Warburg did not live long enough to find out so that his discoveries could be applied in health restoration and disease prevention.    It is critical to know the difference between “good” and “bad” fats and Budwig’s literature is referenced in nearly resource I found.  Society is becoming more familiar with unusual sounding terms like “hydrogenated” and “polyunsaturated,” and many of us could probably even give a reasonable definition of an “essential fatty acid.”  These are “essential” because they must be acquired through foods (“Essentials” include omega 3 and 6 fatty acids should be in approximately a 50/50 ratio.)

Decades ago Dr. Budwig lectured on the connection between “bad” fats like hydrogenated margarines and illness as well as the importance of essential fatty acids. In a speech that she delivered on November 2, 1959 in Zurich, Switzerland, Dr. Budwig said, “Without these fatty acids, the respiratory enzymes cannot function and the person suffocates, even when he is given oxygen-rich air. A deficiency in these highly unsaturated fatty-acids impairs many vital functions. First of all, it decreases the person’s supply of available oxygen. We cannot survive without air and food; nor can we survive without these fatty acids. That has been proven long ago.

Clearly, Dr. Budwig understood the connection between diet and health. She recognized that with the advent and popularity of hydrogenated and overprocessed oils came an increase in the rates of several serious illnesses. She realized that the way foods are now processed eliminates virtually all of the essential fatty acids. So, Dr. Budwig decided to focus her career on finding the dietary solution or cure to the list of diseases that affect so many people in the world.”

Dr. Budwig has spent a lot of time in her career studying the blood of cancer patients. In fact, one of her observations came about after 30 years of painstaking research. Dr. Budwig noticed that people who were seriously ill with cancer always had low levels of two specific substances in their blood: phosphatides and lipoproteins. She also observed that in healthy, cancer-free people, these two compounds were present in normal amounts that were sufficient for good health.

Additionally, Dr. Budwig found that cancer patients typically had an odd greenish-yellow substance in their blood, instead of normal amounts of hemoglobin. She realized that this discovery undoubtedly explained why cancer patients are so often weak and suffering from anemia. Dr. Budwig also discovered that in general, blood that comes from a healthy person contains far greater levels of Omega 3 essential fatty acids than blood samples taken from someone who is ill.

From her research, Dr. Budwig realized that her theories connecting diet and health were absolutely correct. She theorized that if just the right combination of nutrients were introduced to cancer patients, perhaps the unusual greenish-yellow gunk would go away and healthy red blood cells would return. She began to test her hypothesis on cancer patients, involving a combination of organic flaxseed oil and quark, a dairy product common in Germany that is very similar to cottage cheese.”(source )

Dr. Budwig chose organic flaxseed oil as her primary source of omega 3 fatty acids because it is the richest source and is easily assimilated and well-tolerated by most people. She opted to mix the oil with quark (a german cottage cheese) because of its high levels of sulfurated protein (cottage cheese contains similar amounts, as does yogurt). She knew from her research that this type of healthy oil requires a sulfurated protein in order for it to be utilized in the body. Specifically, when the protein combined with the oil, Dr. Budwig discovered that the flaxseed oil would actually become water soluble, meaning that it would be absorbed more easily. Taking flaxseed oil without the sulfurated protein found in quark, cottage cheese or yogurt is not inherently harmful, but in order to achieve results like Dr. Budwig a combination of the oil and protein is necessary.

Amazingly, Dr. Budwig found that after only three short months on her flaxseed oil-quark combination, cancer patients began to improve. Tumors shrunk in size, patients’ strength returned, and further blood analysis showed that the infamous greenish-yellow substance did indeed go away. Phosphatide and lipoprotein levels returned to normal, and red blood cell amounts were once again at healthy amounts. She was even able to help the patients whose doctors had told to “go home and die.” Clearly, Dr. Budwig had hit on something big in the world of cancer research!

In fact, after over 10 years of clinical research, Dr. Budwig’s combination of 2 tablespoons of organic flaxseed oil combined with one quarter cup of cottage cheese has been used successfully in Europe to treat a variety of diseases in addition to cancer, including arteriosclerosis, eczema, stomach and intestinal disorders, arthritis, and strokes.

After reading about Dr. Budwig’s numerous successes with flaxseed oil, many other scientists became interested in studying its many benefits. A great number of studies have looked at flaxseed oil’s ability to help with a variety of serious diseases and health conditions, and the results have been impressive. In fact, it is difficult to state a reason not to supplement with flaxseed oil.

Budwig, Dr. Johanna, Flax Oil as a True Aid Against Arthritis, Heart Infarction, Cancer, and Other Diseases, 1992, pages 5-59 also offers their own oil for sale and discounts for cancer patients using Budwig Protocol. Barleans also sells wonderful organic coconut oil (I use it for butter).  You can order from Barleans, bionatures, or Amazon.  It must be kept cold and in the dark opaque container it is sold in.  It can be frozen.

Parts of this article originally appeared on who is a major supplier of Barleans Cold Pressed organic flax seed oil. This product is pressed to order and shipped immediately in dark brown bottles. It can be frozen to keep on hand. It is the mainstay of the Budwig Flaxoil/Cottage Cheese protocol. We make a smoothie of kefir (cultured milk) and this flax oil every morning.  I add berries (fresh or frozen) and a few drops of Stevia herbal sweetener.  Delicious and “essential” for health.

Perspectives on “Earthing”

Walking barefoot on sand, grass, or dirt connects us with the layer of electrons so we can absorb what we need to balance our bio-electrical body elements.

Walking barefoot on sand, grass, or dirt connects us with the layer of electrons so we can absorb what we need to balance our bio-electrical body elements.

I’ve posted before that Bill Henderson, respected author of Cancer Free:  Your Guide to Gentle Non-Toxic Healing, is very forthright and dedicated to edifying people about the risks of traditional cancer treatment as well as spreading the word about “non-toxic treatments”. Bill is also forthright about “leaving the spiritual up to his readers”.  That’s his approach but not mine as you know.  Still, Bill and I often agree on promising products and discoveries.  Earthing is one of these.

Bill has a website and publishes eNewsletters, but I’m not aware of a blog at .   In the most recent one he wrote about a subject I’ve written about on but not yet to the extent Bill does in this article.  I was keen to share it with you because Bill encourages such sharing (as I do) and he never touts something he hasn’t tried himself.   Bill is now in his 80’s and has never had cancer himself but lost his first wife to traditional cancer treatment and has since dedicated himself, as I said, to helping folks avoid such a tragedy.

We usually wear shoes walking the dog, but the dog is a great electron attractor.  Thus petting and stroking the dog after a walk can greatly benefit us.

I, too, have been trying products from  (pillow case and foot pad which is on floor under my computer).  Neither Bill nor I receive endorsement monetary rewards or product discounts.   We both are dedicated to really making cancer a non-issue.   I have had wonderful experience with the earthing products–even better sleep and, amazingly, much better skin condition and healing.   A quantum physicist friend gave me his own earthing or grounding mechanism a few years ago and I found it wonderful although a bit cumbersome.  He’s refined it and it is available at .

The goal is what the name implies–grounding with the electric field of the earth to bio-electrically balance our bodies.  We KNOW that our electron balance must be correct for healing to take place in our bodies. provides a very nice book explaining the science which meshes with much of my research including the work of Dr. Johanna Budwig (Doctor of Science and practicing physician in Germany) and Dr. Robert O.Becker, M.D. (USA).   We ALL know we are as electrical as chemical and “earthing” is NOT about electrical current into the body but about grounding in the earth to balance us.

Here’s what Bill Henderson writes:

“Folks, I’m devoting this edition of my newsletter to one subject. Several reasons: First, I think this is an important subject that you should all become familiar with. Second, I’ve had personal experience with it that I’d like to share with you. And third, I know of nothing that is cheaper or easier to use that will do you as much good as this.
Please be assured I have no financial interest in this subject. None at all. I just want each and every one of my readers and fans to benefit from my experience. If you want to begin exploring it, just go to
You’ve probably heard of Earthing. I know I had. But I hadn’t really studied it until a very kind reader, Marjorie Geiger, sent me a message about it on October 16th. Thanks to her, I ordered it and got the package on about October 24th. I’ve been using it for about a week (along with my wife, Terry).
Here’s what “earthing” is. It is simply absorbing from the earth the high volume of healing electrons that emerge 24/7. How? Well, one way is to walk barefoot on the grass, sand, gravel, dirt or even concrete. Another is to connect to this wonderful source of health indoors. How? Well, you have to have the equipment I bought, or something similar, that plugs you into the earth through the grounding plug in most of the electrical outlets in your house.
Why is absorbing these electrons so healthy? Well, virtually all inflammation in our bodies (the primary cause of most “disease”) and most pain is caused by free radicals and other electrical imbalances. It’s not only helpful for pain and most “illness,” it is a wonderful “anti-aging” process. Here’s a quote from the book “Earthing — the most important health discovery ever:”
“The rise of inflammation in medical awareness has spawned a new term; ‘inflamm-aging.’ Italian researchers coined it in 2006 to describe a progressive inflammatory status and a loss of stress-coping ability as two major characteristics of the aging process.
Inflammation is now believed to be the underlying cause of more than eighty chronic illnesses, and more than half of Americans suffer currently from one or more of them. Each year, millions die from these conditions. The most common chronic diseases cost the U.S. economy alone more than $1 trillion annually — and that figure threatens to reach $6 trillion by the middle of the century.”
Well, yes. The book I quoted from above comes to you as part of your order of the Earthing package. It is 320 pages long and has hundreds of examples of people healing pain and degenerative “diseases” using the Earthing equipment. I’ll give you one example. This is a lady who participated in a study where she used the equipment I have for about 8 weeks:
“Participant No. 3, fifty-two years old, menopausal
Pre-study complaints:
* Sleeps very lightly
* Wakes up feeling tense several times during the night
* Wakes up feeling tired in the morning; feel tired all day
* Pain in left hip, sporadic for several years
* Allergies (food and airborne) since age thirteen
* Digestion: gas
End of Study Feedback:
* “Have felt more rested and feel like I need an hour less sleep per night.”
* “Deeper relaxation.”
* “Stopped having any pain at all in my left hip.”
* “First few days, I experienced tingling and heat in areas of my previous physical injuries — similar to an acupuncture treatment. After about three days, these vague feelings subsided.”
* “Allergies have definitely lessened.”
* “Better digestion”
* “I noticed that I stopped clenching my jaw at night.”
* The participant reported that her husband, who was not a part of the study, but who was sleeping grounded next to her, “began sleeping fewer hours, has more energy and has stopped snoring.”
My own experience is similar to the lady above. I have had a severe pain in my left hip for about 4 months. It has been so bad at times that I simply could not walk our dog and had to ask my wife to do it. It is the main reason I ordered the Earthing package. Well, would you believe — after the first night sleeping with the “half sheet” that was plugged in to the wall socket grounding hole, my pain reduced about 50%. Since then, it has gradually reduced to about 20% of what it was two weeks ago. I’m assuming it will continue to where I have no more pain — but I’ll let you know.
I’ve slept much better. At my age (almost 84), most men like me have to get up half a dozen times during the night to pee. The number of times has reduced to about 3 or 4 times and my sleep in between has improved dramatically. I feel much more energy during the day. Folks, this is in one week!!
I have one other condition i hope it will improve on. I have a swelling in my ankles and calves caused by poor circulation to those extremities. I’m watching this closely to see if it improves. The “half-sheet” I mentioned goes at the bottom of the mattress where your feet and lower legs recline on it all night.
My wife, Terry, reports much better and more relaxing sleep. She has a small pillow that she is using that allegedly will take care of her wrinkles on her face (she doesn’t have many) in about 30 days. We’ll let you know.
Well, we bought the Earthing Starter Kit for about $200 plus shipping. It includes the “half-sheet” I mentioned which goes on a king size bed very easily. You can also use it for just one side of the bed, if you prefer, where it contacts all of one person’s body. There is also a pad which I use at my desk so I can put bare feet on it during my day of coaching, reading and answering e-mails. I’m using it right now. So, in addition to the help I get at night sleeping, I get plenty during the day in the office. There is no exertion. You just do your normal stuff and the Earthing products take care of your healing.
Also in the package we got was a bonus of the pillow I mentioned that my wife is using every night. They send you a simple test device to plug into your electric outlets at home to see if they are properly grounded. In case they are not, they give you something you can plug in outside to get the same effect. There is a test device to use once the sheet, foot pad and pillow are hooked up to make sure they are putting out the right “juice” of electrons for you.
The book I quoted from above is included in the package and will give you a valuable background on the history of “Earthing” (it only goes back in this form to 2000) and numerous examples of the benefits people get from this wonderful healing method.
In my opinion, you all need to try this. The benefits seem to be enormous for the price. Again, I have absolutely no financial interest in this. I just want you to get the advantage of this marvelous discovery. Again, the website to buy this equipment (or something less) is”
Do your friends a favor and send them to my website:
Be well…and be sure to hug each other every day and lay your burdens down tonight!

Lymphatics! Clean Inner Environment

This post could be placed under every single search label on this blog because, believe it or not, our amazing and much overlooked lymphatic system is key and critical in all the biochemistry of healthy cells….without a healthy lymphatic system, our body tissue would be a dirty swamp. Have you ever seen and/or smelled a neglected and dirty fish aquarium? Get the picture?  I call the work this amazing “system” does Lymphatics.

Life goes on at a high level in a clean aquarium.  Our internal environment must be clean for our body cells to be healthy.

Life goes on at a high level in a clean aquarium. Our internal environment must be clean for our body cells to be healthy.

I’m sure there will be several upcoming posts about this amazing vascular system because the Lord’s been

Our body cells literally gasp for life if our internal environment robs them of oxygen and nutrients they need.  WE MUST KEEP CLEAN FLUID MOVING 24/7

Our body cells literally gasp for life if our internal environment robs them of oxygen and nutrients they need. WE MUST KEEP CLEAN FLUID MOVING 24/7

leading me to a LOT of research on it lately……..disclosing some things we ALL need to know. In an early post on entitled, “Don’t Stagnate”, I talked about the importance of muscle contraction in activity and exercise as regards the movement of lymph throughout the body. I pointed out that, unlike the blood circulatory system with the heart muscle pumping it out to cells carrying nutrients and oxygen and back to the heart for replenishing, the lymph vessels are not pumped by a heart muscle. I wrote that exercise is important because it is the contraction of our skeletal muscles that pump the lymph in vessels alongside the blood vessels to pick up tissue wastes excreted in cellular digestion and respiration. I’ve learned there is even more we must do to move that lymph and cleanse the tissues (made up of cells) in our bodies……not commonly understood but VERY important.

Exercise is important for “not becoming stagnant” like a sour fish tank, BUT it is not the only important “lymph moving” mechanism.

I was listening to “The Gersen Tapes” discovered and distributed by . These are recorded healing testimonies and expert presentations from the 100th birthday celebration of Dr. Max Gersen, MD who was a pioneer of cancer treatment without chemo, radiation, surgery, etc. and whose work has been continued by his daughter, Charlotte Gersen Strauss and his grandchildren. The website is The information in these tapes is a treasure and I will be sharing more from them. The presentation that enlightened me regarding lymph was from the late Dr. C. Samuel West, a chemist and lymphologist (and Christian) who shared his lengthy and dynamic research while referencing many other pioneer scientists in the study of our amazing lymph systems. Dr. West’s sons are continuing his work and I will find and share their website links soon. You can Google Dr. C. Samuel West now if you don’t want to wait. Dr. West has a youtube video at and his son, Karl West, has a presentation at Neither of these videos is very well produced and they are a LOT of science that I am currently double checking etc. But, you might find them interesting if you have a little patience with the production quality.

Here is the first important GEM of information. It has been discovered that it is deep breathing that is the most important bodily mechanism for moving the “waste laden lymph returning from the interstitial fluid and cells to be dumped back into the blood stream on the left side of our neck (sub-clavian vein behind the collar bone). It is the movement of the diaphragm muscle in deep breathing that pumps this lymph up and out of the major lymph duct.

I will give you the explanations later, but I wanted to give you the “what to do” now so you could be cleansing and de-toxing by more efficient use of our wonderful lymphatic system.

I had learned a deep breathing exercise from Dr. Andrew Weil but he never explained it’s impact on lymph movement. Relax and sit erect or lie down on your back with knees slightly raised. Place tip of tongue behind upper front teeth and breath in through your nose to a count of 4…being sure to start the breath raising your belly and then moving up to raise your chest. Hold the breath to a count of 7 and then make a strong “whoosh” sound as you expel the air through your mouth to a count of 8. I can personally attest to the effectiveness of this breathing exercise in augmenting my own healing but I couldn’t explain why.

Dr. West witnessed an experiment done by an Italian doctor who tagged certain proteins “vacuumed” from the interstitial tissue by the lymph and photographed (I’m assuming via Xray)as the man walked/ran on a treadmill. The lymph movement as indicated by the tagged protein movement was unremarkable until the test subject began taking deep breaths and each one shot the protein containing lymph forward in the main lymph duct in trunk. It was something of a “eureka moment” because prior to that, the impact of deep breathing on lymph movement was not understood.

There are other mechanism for moving lymph including energy stimulation and proper massage as well as bouncing on a mini-trampoline (properly). We’ll discuss these further. I just wanted to get the breathing information to my readers now so that they could be “cleaning their internal ’tissue aquariums’ now and ramp up the de-toxification of their cellular biochemistry.

Here is a link to a very well done video explaining breathing and the beginning of lymphatic self message. The presenter happens to be in my home state of Kentucky and her website is
The video link is

Heather has several lymphatic message videos on Youtube but I would watch this one as soon as possible so you can get the breathing exercises started.

Remember, we are on a quest to have health at the cellular level and the rest takes care of itself.   Of course, staying hydrated with clean water is necessary for our amazing lymphatic systems to constantly wash and cleanse our inner environment.

Healing Blood

Recently I’ve been blessed to see a hungry lover of the Lord seek the Healer rather than the healing and moving along her healing journey steadily and rather quickly.  She was panicked at a diagnosis of cancer and had done a bit of harsh devoting only to become more fearful because of the resulting  pain.

I was grateful when she told me that the “Don’t Panic” page (tab at top of home page at  had helped her out of the fear and into the faith she needs. Fear and faith cannot coexist of course, and Jesus constantly taught “Do not be afraid.”.  I’m blessed correspond regularly with this woman and I see a profound difference for the good growing in every email. She can’t stop praising and thanking “the Living God”. She lives in a nation not necessarily considered “Christian”—still the Lord’s right there beside her.

She was reminded that He IS our health. That is well illustrated by His telling the Hebrew children “I am the Lord that heals you,” But the translation from original language is “I am your health.” (Ex 15:26 which is actually a covenant of healing) Think of more than million Israelites leaving Pharoah’s evil grasp and not a one was sick, injured or weak.

The Israelite slaves had obeyed God’s instructions given to Moses and they gained favor even with their former captors who gave them their gold and silver. So this throng of people who were leaving a life of slavery and overwork were carrying all this heavy treasure and NONE were ill. We find out later that their shoes didn’t even wear out. (Dt 29:5) And they certainly did a lot of grumbling so it wasn’t a matter of “rewarding perfect behavior”.

God's compassion is in His only Son's blood.  It never changes. It's yours!

God’s compassion is in His only Son’s blood. It never changes. It’s yours!

Before leaving, however, they had obediently prepared and eaten the “Passover Lamb” and anointed their door lintel and side posts with that lamb’s blood. If you think about it, you see that the blood on the lintel would have dripped to the door sill so that, with the blood on the door posts, there would have been the marks of the cross at the entry to their houses (Ex 12:7) and “the cross” saved them when the “angel of death” came by in the night.  Jesus poured out His Healing Blood for each of us.

It was just a type and shadow of our sacrificed and resurrected Lord whose blood saved them and saves us. (“save” being always the original word in Hebrew and Greek for “sozo meaning wholeness of body, soul, and spirit”.

That’s why Matthew 8:17 reminds us that Isaiah prophesied that Himself (the Messiah), took every disease and infirmity and sin into His “self”, took them to the place they belong, left them there, and was RESURRECTED in glory (still a man) but glorified and totally dedicated to you and me.

We now have the real “Lamb of God” and every time we celebrate Holy Communion, we are re-empowered to be whole of body, mind, and spirit. I celebrate Holy Communion every night before I go to sleep. It is a time of pure “Thanksgiving” for our Jesus who gave His all for our health and wholeness. Healing is really the resurrection of our health and fully God’s will.

Give the enemy no attention after you remind him out loud that Jesus ‘finished him and you are no longer under the curse’. Focus on Jesus just as the Israelites were “saved or sozoed” by having their health again restored later in the wilderness when they whined and complained so that God let the enemy release poisonous serpents. God had Moses make a staff of a bronze serpent (another shadow of Jesus raised up) and only those who focused steadily on this “shadow of Jesus” were healed or restored to health.(Numbers 21:9) They had a “type and shadow”, but, again, we have Jesus Himself.

Don’t panic when a disease or diagnosis tried to fill your soul with fear (and thus your body with wrong responses) “see” these scenes the Israelites in your heart. God showed his love and compassion even in the Old Covenant. We have the “New Covenant in Jesus’s blood”.

We can’t heal when we struggle with fear.  It changes our body chemistry and voltage blocking built in healing mechanisms.   Give all that to the One who already disposed of it—the One who has already done ALL that’s necessary for your healing and wholeness to manifest. It ALL begins with worshipping and thanking Him for ALL He’s done. God is love and love always heals. It’s who God is and it is “How God Is”.
