Did you know that the watermelon is really a berry?  And what a sweet and delicious fruit it is to all of us who have eaten it during these long hot “microwavable” summers that stretch around the world.  Whether it is a little sugar baby or just a long green one it is always refreshing on hot summer day.   The fruit, rind and even the seeds have been known for their therapeutic medicinal use in ancient times in Persia, Egypt, Spain, Rome and Greece.

Watermelon has been reported as a very helpful in correcting abnormal kidney conditions, such as polycystic kidney, exposure to mycotoxins (Balkan Disease) and aids in the reduction of adenovirus within the kidney tissue.  Apparently there is an ingredient in the seeds, Cucurbocitrin, which has the effect of dilating the capillaries, the tiny blood vessels of the body.  Consequently, the pressure upon the large blood vessels within the kidney are then reduced.

 

Watermelon wedges are popular as desserts and they are also used in fruit salads, smoothies, popsicles, or mixed in a salad with pieces of cantaloupes, pears, apples and other fruits and berries.  It is quite a treat on a very HOT day, especially when served Ice cold.

Series 4:  Botanicals of Antiquity        BAY LEAVES

Bay leaves have been used in culinary dishes from all over the word to give the tasty dish a “little zing” since ancient times. The bay tree belongs to the family of Laurraceane of the genus Laurus nobilis.   It is thought to originate from Asia Minor, but spread all over the Mediterranean and Asia during earlier times. 

Bay Leaf Tree

The bay plant is a conical evergreen tree growing to 30 feet in height.  Yellow or greenish white, star shaped flowers appear during early spring, which subsequently produce dark green-purplish single seeded berry.  The leaves are eliptic and shiny dark green about 3 to 4 inches long, rather thick and leathery.  

The leaves give off a sweet aroma when broken and added to a dish or your flour container to keep it fresh.  When slightly wilted and dried, they are strongly aromatic.  The dried fruit is also used as a flavoring agent in cuisines.

If you want to use it as a lymphatic and central nervous system detoxifying water, cell

regenerator as it nurtures your body back to health I personally recommend the following Dr. Hildy™ recipe.   Add 8 bay leaves to 4 quarts of water (spaghetti pot size to hold the water).    Bring to a boil, and then set to a side, off the burner.  Let steep 15 minutes or longer.   Pour into a pitcher as it cools down and keep in the refrigerator.  Serve as a refreshing drink. After drinking two glasses (approximately 10- to 12 ounces each) you may experience its detoxifying effects as it cleans out the nervous system of the lymph glands and CNS.  You will feel it strip the toxic build up away.  In cases where an individual may have been exposed to aromatic solvents, organophosphates/carbamates and silanes/siloxanes the bay leaf water will clean out the spinal cord and 350 glands within the individuals head.  You may experience a sweating from the crown of your head to the tip of your spine.  Quite refreshing and invigorating as the more you clean this target organ system.

The health benefits of bay leaf are the following: 

  • ·        Bay leaf was highly praised by the Greeks and the Romans, who thought that the herb was symbolic of wisdom, peace and protection.
  • ·        The spice contains many notable plant derived compounds, minerals and vitamins that are essential for optimum health, detox and cellular regeneration.
  • ·        This spice has many volatile active components such as alpha-pinene, beta-pinene, myrcene, limonene, linalool, methyl chavicol, neral, alpha terpineol, Read the rest of this entry

Vitamin B-12 Sources

(This vitamin is found mainly in liver, kidney, muscle meats, oysters, milk, eggs, cheese and salt-water fish.  Of the vegetable foods, yeast, wheat germ and soybeans have cobalimin content, but  only small traces of it.)

This vitamin is essential for the blood-forming organs of the bone marrow if they are to function properly.  Also, the nervous system depends upon this vitamin for nutrition.  One of the ingredients of this vitamin is cobalt, and it appears from the study of scientific materials that Vitamin B12 is now being referred to as cobalamin, because of the importance of cobalt in the diet.  Likewise, zinc is associated with this vitamin, the studies indicating that the vitamin cannot be synthesized without the help of zinc.  Vitamin B12 is also needed to help form hemoglobin scale.  Thus this vitamin is important for the prevention of anemia.  It also combines with folic acid to help produce the vital red blood cells.  Actually, it has been stated that less than one millionth of a gram of cobalamin is needed daily to meet the human body requirements.

The lack of cobalamin may cause pernicious anemia, due to the inability of the bone marrow to form blood when this vitamin is absent.  A symptom of lack of cobalamin is a shuffling gait.  Another indication is a loss of sense of position of the feet.  In severe cases, where there has been a degeneration of the spinal cord, there may be nerve and brain damage and even complete paralysis.

Another result of this deficiency is general malnutrition, marked by an insufficient production of sex hormones with the resultant lack of development or shriveling of Read the rest of this entry

Celebrate the Treasured Polish Custom of “Pisanki”  Coloring and Displaying of Easter Eggs

Pisanki

Pisanki

I want to wish all of my readers and viewers a blessed Easter, Passover and a Happy Spring Time.   Los Angeles, California is home to a variety of Ethnic communities, but due to the celebration of Easter and the coloring of the “Easter Egg.”  I feel it is important for my readers and viewers  to know the Polish tradition of “Pisanki” the coloring of eggs.

The pisanki traditions are derived from an ancient tradition when eggs, the symbol of life,

were endowed with magical properties and were thought to ensure both a plentiful harvest and good health.  The name Pisanki comes from the Polish word “pisac’”, which means to write. The practice of coloring Easter eggs is very much alive in Poland today, just as it is tradition in all households of the world who celebrate the arrival of Peter Cotton Tail and his fellow companions.   Polish people have enjoyed this tradition, Read the rest of this entry

Nano Crystals and Modified Food Starches 

I have been asked by several of my associates to condense this particular blog into terms that the average reader may relate to in their home, work environment or within their everyday life style.   Well, if anyone knows me, sometimes it is hard to candy coat a technical piece, make it easier to understand or try to explain something technical to a non-technical minded person – so here goes.

Modified food starch is a term used in industry for any food starch that has something added to it or changed from its original form.  Food starches come from potatoes, corn and other similar produce that has a high starch yield in its chemical composition.   You may use corn starch to thicken your gravies, make fruit pie filling Read the rest of this entry

Vitamin B2, also known as Vitamin G, was

discovered in 1932 and given its name and identity in 1937.  It’s chemical formula is C17H20N4O6.  It is also known as riboflavin.
It is an important factor in growth and development of the body and promotes a healthy condition of the skin.  It is especially valuable in combination with Vitamin A for prevention and correction of cataracts and for health of the skin, hair and eyes.  This vitamin is also important to the body in assimilating iron and proteins.  Being water-soluble, it is not easily stored in the body.  It is affected by light but not by air or heat. An important chemical function of this vitamin is to break down starches and sugars into

energy, a function similar to that of Vitamin B1.  This enables the body to better resist infectious disease and is necessary for good health and vitality.  An ample supply of this vitamin will help produce healthier offspring and delay the bodily changes that often accompany increasing years of life.  It is said that the Centenarians of Bulgaria have a diet rich in Vitamin B2.A lack of Vitamin B2 may cause inflammation of the membrane of the eye and eyelids (conjunctivitis), lips that become sore and red and later cracked and peeled, especially at the mouth corners.  Often, the first sign of deficiency is dimness of vision at a distance or in poor light.  The cornea (the white, glasslike area of the eyeball) may become bloodshot and inflamed if the deficiency is allowed to continue.  The theory is that this vitamin carries oxygen, and when no oxygen arrives the body forms new blood vessels to bring oxygen to the parts lacking it.  An absence of riboflavin produced cataracts in experimentations.

Pellagra, Mold and Niacin (B-3)

Mild Pellagra Case

Mild Pellagra Case

Pellagra is a vitamin deficiency disease most commonly caused by a chronic lack of niacin (vitamin B-3) in the diet.  It can be cause by decreased intake of niacin or tryptophan, and possibly by excessive intake of leucine.  It may also result from alteration in protein metabolism in disorders such as carcinoid syndrome.  A deficiency of the amino acid lysine can lead to a deficiency of niacin as well.  In recent times, with the advent of artificial skin, which uses dragon protein, leucine and other amino acids in its nano composite, individuals may become deficient of niacin from these internal exposures.    This same type of internal metabolic disorder from carbohydrate and protein metabolism can occur after severe mold exposure that resulted in internal exposure to various myctoxins such as, tricothecene, verrmerruculogen and ochratoxin.
