On Oct 5th, my 81 yr old mother had a heart attack that included a blood clot that went partly to her brain, disabling her right arm. She could still move it, awkwardly, not like it was part of her, some communication seemed to be lacking between the brain and the hand, whether is was neurological, muscular or skeletal in origin, I’m not really sure. But she just couldn’t turn her wrist, like to feed herself. She had to lean way over to her hand and couldn’t hold the utensil at all, half the time she held it upside down & the food would fall off. I would always wonder why it was easier to hold it upside down, instead of the right way, but was just glad that she was trying to use it.
I went right to the closest health food store & started diffusing frankincense oil & lemon eucalyptus. The first 3 days after the heart attack, she didn’t use it at all. I kept asking her about it, because nurses would ask her if she’s lefty. ‘Can you grip the walker with both hands, Mom?’ I’d ask her, ‘Yup,’ she’d say, but wouldn’t do it, no matter how much I encouraged her to squeeze with that hand, she wouldn’t although agreeing with me the whole time that she would. I was like, ‘do you try and you can’t or how does it feel?’ she said, ‘It feels weak & like I can’t get it to move the way I want, I can’t bend or twist my wrist.’ But she could squeeze it if she tried real hard.
She also had kidney failure with the heart attack, so her kidneys are weak & they are watching them closely. On the 10th, she started having a really bad pain her foot, right in the middle of it. I looked in my Clinical Kinesiology book & found that it was right on her kidney meridian, imagine that?! So, I did Accupressure on it & every other point of her body that I could reach. The next day, I went & got a juicer & made her some fresh, organic, veggie juice, which she drank half of a cup of. I went and ran errands, when I came back, she flexed her wrist all around to show me how great it was & told me how she fed herself, did not spill anything, which hadn’t happened since she woke up & started trying to feed herself!
The power of vital nutrients that the body needs are components necessary for cellular regeneration after any disease. The body can assimilate the nutrients found in nature. In the hospital setting, all they are doing is pumping you or a loved one full of medication! Some might be necessary, all have side effects and are foreign to the body. Our bodies get an instant shot of nutrition burst into the bloodstream when we drink fresh juice. Like nothing else, vitamins in a capsule are good, but if you can get it straight from the plant, there’s nothing better. You can get everything and more than what your body needs for a day in one cup of delicious juice. Sooo many diseases today stem from poor nutrition & toxic food, either genetically modified, microwaved, processed….it’s the SAD diet~
Standard American Diet.
In trying to help my mom, I realized, they weren’t going to let me give her all of the necessary vitamins that I bought at the health food store, you know, they get all freaked out about any pills that might not have any adverse side effects. I told the Dr. I was concerned about her nutritional requirements, so he ordered a multivitamin. I researched the vitamin he prescribed for her & found it caused, tightness in the chest, shortness of breath, nausea, swelling of the face, lips, hands, feet, etc. This is the vitamin they are giving her!! So that’s when I realized, I will go buy a juicer & blender & make her fresh juice & smoothies everyday, what can they say about that? And you would not believe how much she has improved! They talked to her about not being able to live alone again on to just going into rehab, to maybe not even needing rehab! They told her they were concerned about her kidneys, the Dr. said today, your kidneys have started to improve over the last couple of days….she’s been drinking juice over the last couple of days!
Make no mistake, you can do this too, it’s not magic, it’s nature, as intended, unadulterated, if you have a sick loved one, don’t leave them to the Dr.s, unless it’s cancer, (depending on the treatment, some cannot drink juice at certain times) bring them organic juice! And bring them organic smoothies, you will see how quickly they improve! A dose is an 8 oz cup, my mom has even been drinking Sprite & coffee, so it’s not like she changed everything, she is still on a ton of medication, not eating all that she should, but you know what, she is still getting better…
and that is why JUICE IS ALL THAT 🙂
