Curing Eye & Ear infections with breast milk

2 1/2 months ago I had my daughter, safiya. I have been breastfeeding her since day one and recently learned some other benefits and uses of breast milk. For those of you who are breastfeeding or know someone who is, please share this information with them. Next time your baby or even yourself have an eye or ear infection, instead of going to the doctor and getting a prescription for antibiotics, use breast milk. A dropper works best. Just put a few drops into the infected eye or ear a few times a day for 2 to 3 days, or until gone. 

Here are the instructions for treating an ear infection 

To find out other uses of breast milk, check out these lists!

Vitamin D3 is also important for babies since most babies are deficient in this vitamin. Anytime you or your children start to come down with something, increase your intake of vitamin D3 and you should feel better within a few days!  Heres a great site to learn more about vitamin D3 and correct dosages for babies and adults. This site is also a great site to learn more about the dangers of vaccines. 

Ive also just discovered Colloidal silver, which has numerous health benefits and works as an antibiotic. Here´s a great site to learn more about it

Red 40, yellow 5 and yellow 6: food dyes causing cancer

Walking down the aisles of your local grocery store, everything is stacked on the shelves, processed, pre-packaged and ready to go.  Labels such as "natural" "no sugar added" can be deceiving. If you take a minute and turn the package over and go through the list of ingredients you will find aspartame, sucrose, or other sugar additives which are dangerous to ones health. This can be misleading. A lot of foods and beverages have food dyes in them, and although they make the product look attractive, have you ever wondered what exactly is in the food dyes? Why do we need extra synthetic chemicals added to our foods, why cant they use plant based dyes?
The following article exposes red 40, yellow 6 and yellow 5 (which are found in most foods and beverages) and how they lead to cancer. We need to stop buying these products and say NO to synthetic chemicals!

No shampoo, thank you

A few months ago I stumbled across an article about washing ones hair with nothing but water, baking soda and vinegar. Intrigued and tired of all the shampoos loaded with chemicals and not wanting to pay $10 for a bottle of organic shampoo whose list of ingredients made me wonder how organic it really was, I decided to follow my philosophy that if you cant eat it, dont put it on your body. Like any detox, it takes about 4-6 weeks to see results. Once you give up shampoo you will wonder why you didnt do it sooner! Your hair will feel thick, clean and no longer be stripped of its natural oils. For those of you concerned about your hair smelling bad or becoming too oily, all you need to do is add a few drops of your favorite scents (jasmine, mint, etc) to the mixture and your hair will smell great. You will no longer need to wash your hair daily, and will find that going 2 or 3 days without washing your hair leaves no build up.

Here is what you will need to get started
1-2 tbsp of baking soda,1/2 cup water, mix and add to a cup or bottle. After your hair is wet, scrub and massage the baking soda into your scalp. Leave on for a minute or so and then rinse. The baking soda gets rid of any build up. Next, mix apple cider vinegar (few tablespoons) with 1/2 cup of water and rinse your hair with it. For extra shine you can even use a beaten egg to your hair, leave on for a minute or so and rinse out. Coffee also makes your hair shiny, just make sure to thoroughly rinse out. When you are finished and your hair has dried, apply coconut oil, olive oil or avocado to your hair for a conditioner. (you will only need to condition your hair 1 to 2 times a week.)

Ive been shampoo-free for a month now and love the results.

Calling all ice cream lovers: one-ingredient ice cream

For all of you ice cream lovers out there, I know what your thinking, Ice cream with just one ingredient? How is it possible? Im here to show you that not only is it possible but its delicious. A few days ago I stumbled upon a recipe that called for just one ingredient to make ice cream, albeit there is no cream and there is no milk, nonetheless its one take on ice cream. To add more flavor you can mix carob powder or chocolate, peanut butter, honey and cinnamon, etc. I prefer to eat mine with honey and cinnamon. Its a wonderful treat for both children and adults and helps to crave your sweet tooth. You can also substitute the banana for an avacado.

Directions for Banana Ice cream

Take 2-3 bananans and cut into small piece
Place the pieces onto a plate and place in the freeze for 2-4 hours.
Remove the banana from the freezer and place into a food processor. Process until smooth and creamy.

Ever wonder whats in a McDonalds Chicken Nugget?

Before you send your child to McDonalds for some chicken nuggets, read the list of ingredients listed below. You will also find a homemade recipe for chicken nuggets which your children will thank you for! Your child´s health is worth the extra time and preperation that goes into making homemade nuggets opposed to having them eat the junk that in fast food nuggets.

 McDonalds Chicken nuggets

"Chicken, water, salt, modified corn starch, sodium phosphates, chicken broth powder (chicken broth, salt, and natural flavoring (chicken source)), seasoning (vegetable oil, extracts of rosemary, mono, di- and triglycerides, lecithin). Battered and breaded with water, enriched bleached wheat flour (niacin, iron, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), yellow corn flour, bleached wheat flour, modified corn starch, salt, leavening (baking soda, sodium acid pyrophosphate, sodium aluminum phosphate, monocalcium phosphate, calcium lactate), spices, wheat starch, dried whey, corn starch. Batter set in vegetable shortening. Cooked in partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, (may contain partially hydrogenated soybean oil and/or partially hydrogenated corn oil and/or partially hydrogenated canola oil and/or cottonseed oil and/or sunflower oil and/or corn oil). TBHQ and citric acid added to help preserve freshness. Dimethylpolysiloxane added as an anti-foaming agent."

"The most frightening of all is the tertiary butylhydroquinone, an antioxidant derived from petroleum that is either sprayed on the nugget or the inside of the box it comes in to help preserve freshness! TBHQ (tertiary butylhydroquinone) is a form of butane (lighter fluid). The FDA allows processors to use it sparingly on food.

Here’s an easy, healthy recipe for homemade chicken nuggets that children will love.

What Makes These Homemade Chicken Nuggets So Healthy?

  • Pastured or free-range, organic chicken
  • Marinated in organic whole milk yogurt
  • Sea salt instead of refined table salt
  • Organic sprouted whole wheat flour instead of bleached white flour
  • Fried in healthy beef tallow, lard or coconut oil
  • Served with nutritious raw honey
  • No petrochemicals, MSG, cancer-causing preservatives, or lighter fluid
You’ll be surprised at how easy this recipe is to make. You can also make a big batch of thse chicken nuggets and freeze them in freezer bags or butcher paper. To reheat, simply put them on a cookie sheet and bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
Serve your homemade chicken nuggets with whatever you like — homemade mac & cheese, mashed potatoes (with cream and butter), or homemade sourdough biscuits. They would also go great on a fresh green salad.
And don’t forget the honey for dipping. Your kids will love it!

Healthy Homemade Chicken Nuggets with Honey Dipping Sauce

Cast iron skillet or large stainless steel saucepan
Small finger bowls or ramekins
3 pounds pastured (or free-range organic, if you can’t get pastured) chicken meat, cut into nugget-size pieces
2 cups organic whole milk yogurt or buttermilk (enough to cover the chicken)
1 yellow or white onion, chopped
2-3 garlic cloves, smashed
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1-2 pinches cayenne pepper
1 1/2 – 2 cups sprouted flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 cups beef tallow, lard or expeller pressed coconut oil — expeller pressed is flavorless so you don’t taste any coconut flavor
Raw honey
1. In a bowl, Pyrex baking dish or plastic freezer bag, marinate the chicken in yogurt or buttermilk with the onion, garlic, paprika and cayenne pepper for a minimum of 4 hours and up to 2 days.
2. Place chicken in a colander and drain off the excess buttermilk or yogurt.
3. Add the sprouted flour, sea salt, ground pepper, and chicken pieces to a large plastic freezer bag, zip to seal, and shake until the chicken is completely coated. You can also dredge the chicken in the flour mixture in a large bowl if you prefer.
4. Set a cast iron skillet or large stainless steel saucepan on medium heat and add the 2 cups of expeller pressed coconut oil.
5. The oil is hot enough when it starts to bubble — but not so hot that it’s smoking. Add the chicken pieces to the pan and fry for 3-5 minutes on each side, until dark golden brown.
6. Using tongs, remove chicken nuggets from the skillet and place on a cooling rack on top of a cookie sheet, or on a plate or cookie sheet lined with a paper towel. Add sea salt to taste.
7. Serve with small bowls (I use small ramekins) of raw honey for dipping."

Syedah Batool Habibah Husaini  

In 1919 when the flu killed 40 million people there was this Doctor that visited the many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu. Many of the farmers and their family had contracted it and many died. The doctor came upon this one farmer and to his surprise, everyone was very healthy. When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing that was different the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a dish in the rooms of the home, 
(probably only two rooms back then). The doctor couldn't believe it and asked if he could have one of the onions and place it under the microscope. She gave him one and when he did this, he did find the flu virus in the onion.  It obviously absorbed the bacteria, therefore, keeping the family healthy.

Menu for Health

A team headed by lung specialist Stephen Rennard at the Nebraska Medical Center found that in a test tube chicken soup suppressed inflammation, which causes many cold symptoms. But chicken soup isn’t the only food that might help heal you from the inside out. Here’s a daily menu based on experts’ recommendations.

  • Orange juice or half a grapefruit. Both are great sources of vitamin C, which could shorten the duration of colds.
  • Whole-grain cereal or bread. Whole grains are rich in vitamins and minerals, including zinc and vitamin E, which can help keep your immune system healthy.
  • Black tea. Real tea leaves (not herbal) have substances that speed the action of cilia, the tiny hairlike cells lining your nasal passages, helping them expel germs.
