I like to study and read articles on preventive medicine. As the wise old adage goes: "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!" And as David Brandt Berg once said, "It is easier to build a fence at the top of a hill than a hospital at the bottom!"

March 6, 2006: Tony from Canada introduced me to flaxseed consumption as being good for overall health! Here are some quotes from Tony's emails:
I am not a doctor but many of my customers that eat flaxseed no longer suffer from hay fever. My girlfriend had trouble all her life and since she started eating flaxseed a few years ago she no longer has a problem. Flaxseed cleans you out, probably the main reason it helps hay fever sufferers. All you need is a few tablespoons of ground flaxseed a day.
Flaxseed is probably the oldest God given seed known to mankind. Been around for 5000 years and is mentioned in the Bible. Egyptian doctors used to carry it around in their medicine bags.
Flaxseed has been known to cure many ailments. I have one customer that could barely walk because she was so weak. I am not sure what she had but now she says she always feels fine.
I was a farm boy and a farmer for seven years and only started eating flaxseed in 1999. Before that I had many years of passing blood during bowel movements. Doctors said it was internal hemorrhoids. Started eating flaxseed and that magically and thankfully went away. I have had a few times in the last 6 years passing blood but that was usually when I had stopped eating flaxseed for a few weeks for one reason or another. Now I eat a few tablespoons a day and no more blood.
For more information, please check out the Northern Light Flax web site: www.nlflax.com I myself just ordered 2 kilograms. I'll post in another month any improvement of my own health by eating flaxseed!
Dec. 15, 2005: A friend introduced me to SoyOnLine Service - the truth about Soy . This site outlines the dangers of soybean product consumption. My friend said that soy consumption could be the reason for a depressed thyroid gland function. My initial reaction to this site was one of disbelief. After living in Japan over half of my 55 years on earth, I had grown to love all soy bean products: tofu, natto (fermented soybeans) miso (a flavour for soup), and of course, soy sauce. However I thought, "Why would somebody go to all the trouble to make such a sophisticated web site to deceive people when he would have no financial interest in doing so?" And so I did my own research and found more web sites about the dangers of soybean products:
Around 1975 or 3 years after coming to Japan, I developed a condition which caused me to be weak and sleep much longer than I normally would. I just could not get up in the morning. My friends told me I needed to increase proteins in my diet, and because soybean products are a protein, I learned to eat natto - fermented soybeans. Most foreigners in Japan loath to eat natto. I firmly believe now that that eating all that natto and tofu did not help my condition one bit. It was only after returning to the USA in 1978 for a furlough that my health was restored. It only took 3 weeks! In Chicago there was no more tofu or natto or soy sauce in my diet. I had always thought that my condition in Japan was a lack of meat in my diet. Could it be that the soybean was actually the cause of my condition? After reading the web pages about soy, it sure seems like a definite possibility!!
Now my goal is to convince a person who is suffering from a suppressed thyroid gland condtion to lay off soybean products. This is a hard saying for Japanese people because they think soybeans are good for health. I was told, "You can never eat enough natto!" But from today, Dec. 15, 2005, I intend to cut all soy products from my diet again and see what happens.

Here's a very cool site on alternative medicine!! The first paragraph of this site: "There are a number of alternative healing therapies that work so well and cost so little (compared to conventional treatment), that Organized Medicine, the Food & Drug Administration, and their overlords in the Pharmaceutical Industry (The Big Three) would rather the public not know about them. The reason is obvious: Alternative, non-toxic therapies represent a potential loss of billions of dollars to allopathic (drug) medicine and drug companies."
I have been studying about autism as I suspect that somebody I know well has a mild form of it. I found an interesting article how certain parents cured their son of autism by simply taking him off milk and other dairy products! If you're interested please check out. http://www.parents.com/articles/health/2085.jsp This certainly confirms warnings of the www.notmilk.com site referred to below.
Here is a most interesting link I found about milk and the dangers of drinking it!!! Since reading articles on that web site, I've stopped consuming all dairy products including cheese which I really liked. I think that I've been feeling better for it.
I haven't been to a doctor since 1984 and hope

I have been learning about "aroma therapy" and "essential oils". I bought a bottle of peppermint oil for myself and a bottle of lavender oil for a girl I know who is handicapped. I can testify to you the personal benefits to me so far:
The cool thing I appreciate about the oils is that their application to others is similar to one of the principles of prayer -- when you pray for others, you yourself are blessed. Just so, administering the oils to others in the form of a massage means your body also receives beneficial effects!
There is only one company I know of that produces therapeutic essential oils -- oils that you can apply directly on your skin and even take internally mixed with food or water -- Young Living. Please check out their site to learn more about it! http://www.youngliving.com/
Here is an article on the benefits of Myrrh oil. It is reported here to be an anti-cancer agent.
Please also know that I am NOT a distributor of their products, nor do I make any claims they may help any aliments that you may have. I am merely suggesting you check them out.
