Greetings from partly SUNNY Northern California. Today I am resting. I received a text this morning from my credit card company. So I called them only to find out my CC had been hacked. I rarely use it, but somehow someone figured out my numbers and tried to use it a few times. The CC company caught it right away. Amazing. The shock of dealing with it made the MS symptoms act up. My system is still fragile. It doesn't take much to set it off. So today I am napping and not working out.
Workout wise, I did 13,000 or more steps X 3 days in a row. Amazing progress for me, since I have been dealing with MS. It's a major improvements in my walking.
This morning's juice was 1/2 a quart of the Fenugreek, apple, turmeric juice. Later a blend of Carrot, Yam, Orange, and turmeric.
I found this on Facebook about Fenugreek. The Eden Prescription
Fenugreek Kills 72% of Breast Cancer Cells in Lab Study: An extract of whole #fenugreek
; plant (not just the seeds) was found to kill outright 71.8% of human breast cancer cells (MCF-7) after 48 hours of treatment, via programmed cell death (apoptosis). Researchers also saw for the first time just how the fenugreek extract did this: by increasing the expression of key pro-apoptotic FAS-receptors by 900%. Fenugreek grows natively along the Eastern Mediterranean and several Asian countries (especially India) and has been used for centuries both as a herb & spice (plant and seeds) as well as a traditional medicine against inflammation, diabetes, high cholesterol, hardening of the arteries, infection, and to increase breast milk production in lactating mothers. Recent research has backed many of these uses, and now has also uncovered fenugreek's potent activity against multiple cancers including liver cancer, lymphoma and prostate cancer.
You can order Fenugreek seeds here. http://sproutpeople.org/seeds/ Or google some organic sprouting fenugreek seeds. They taste mild flavored compared to Broccoli sprouts or their French Mix. While you can eat them on salads, I juice them to extract the most amount of nutrients. I add in apple to make it taste like something. It has a slightly mucilaginous texture, but when you add apple juice I don't notice it. Foods with that kind of texture appear to be healing for the stomach issues.
I thought I would share this email I received about a Juice Challenge program with free recipes. I don't have anything to do with this.
Here is a link of a diet that has been found to help heal MS. There are testimonies here. If you do a search for other health issues they can be found here to.
Oh, last thought. Oregon State University found an antioxident called MitiQ helps decrease MS symptoms. Read more here. http://www.ohsu.edu/xd/about/n
"After 14 days, the EAE mice that had been treated with the MitoQ exhibited reduced inflammatory markers and increased neuronal activity in the spinal cord — an affected brain region in MS — that showed their EAE symptoms were being improved by the treatment. The mice also showed reduced loss of axons, or nerve fibers and reduced neurological disabilities associated with the EAE. The mice that had been pre-treated with the MitoQ showed the least problems. The mice that had been treated with MitoQ after EAE also showed many fewer problems than mice who were just induced to get the EAE and then given no treatment."
I ordered 3 bottles to try out. It's a souped up CoQ10 that is around 800 times stronger than regular Co-Q 10 and it has positive electrons so it works better.
My body says rest, so I listen.
