Benefits of Ginger

I've been drinking a hot cup of ginger tea daily for about two weeks now. My recipe varies depending on my mood. I use organic powdered ginger, organic powdered cinnamon, lemon juice, organic raw honey and water.

Some days I leave out the cinnamon, other days I leave out the ginger. The important thing is keep drinking it.

I also have ginger root on hand as well as ginger capsules. You cannot over estimate the benefits of ginger.

Here's an article from Anthony William, Medical Medium, from his FaceBook page:

Ginger is one of the world’s oldest and most popular medicinal spices. It is known to greatly aid in digestion and assimilation and is widely regarded to help prevent colds, flu, motion sickness, and vertigo. 

Ginger can also help to alleviate menstrual cramps, nausea, heart burn, migraines, sore throats, exhaustion, fatigue, and constipation and it is great in providing relief from the stomach flu and food poisoning. 

Ginger also contains potent anti-inflammatory compounds called gingerols and is a powerful painkiller which makes it especially beneficial for those who suffer with joint, muscle, and nerve pain. 

Ginger has incredible immune-boosting and germ fighting abilities and has even been shown to help provide protection and relief from E.coli, Staph infections, and Candida albicans. 

In ancient times, ginger was highly regarded as a spiritual cleanser and used before and during holy days as a way to awaken and purify the body, mind, and spirit. 

Fresh ginger is one of the most potent ways to receive its health benefits. Try making a liter of ginger water or tea everyday by adding freshly grated ginger in water and let steep for 10-20 minutes. Adding some raw honey and fresh squeezed lemon juice will enhance its flavor and add to its protective and healing properties. Fresh ginger is also excellent juiced with apples and celery for an energizing and immune boosting drink. Using fresh ginger in any of your cooking or preparing of food will also provide healing benefits and should be added whenever possible. If you find fresh ginger too strong for your liking, then try using ginger in powder, capsule, tea, or tincture form that can be found online or in your local health food store.

Choosing a Spouse


In 1922 she ( Elsie Lincoln Benedict ) told an audience, 

Most people use less brains in selecting the person with whom they are to spend their lives than they do in choosing an automobile, a bicycle or a cut of steak. Love isn’t enough; there must also be understanding.”

So true... I wonder why. 

We progressed beyond arranged marriages but in the process we seem to have lost all sense of logic when it comes to choosing a spouse. 

Sure, the religious may adhere to the concept of being unequally yoked religiously,  but there are many other ways in which two people can be unequally yoked.

Benedict authored many books and had many interesting things to say for a woman living in the 1920s. 

Joe Vitale has dubbed her the forgotten Wonder Woman.

Blood Types and Brain Function




I remember a few years ago there were some articles circulating that said your blood type could affect your ability to lose weight. I think that idea pretty much fizzled out.

Now, scientific research is showing a link between blood types and brain function.

The article was published in Scientific American, so it can be taken seriously.

Speaking of blood types, I found this informative graphic that lists which blood types can receive transfusions from other blood types.

You can read the article for yourself to find out about blood types and links to dementia, heart disease and other problems.

Here are some interesting risks related to blood types:

  • People with O blood type may be more likely to have depression and intense anxiety; children may be at a greater risk of attention-deficit disorder.
  • People with A blood type may be more prone to obsessive-compulsive disorder; children may be at a greater risk of attention-deficit disorder.
  • Children with B blood type may have a lower risk of attention-deficit disorder.

Biblical Passages Concerning Modern Day Issues

Below is a link to a video clip from the TV series West Wing. I loved that show and still miss it.

While I've tried to explain these Biblical passages concerning modern day issues to people who defend their bias against homosexuals, it rarely makes any difference. They tend to defy logic and dismiss the evidence.

Still, this is a great video clip that clearly demonstrates the foolishness of Bible thumpers everywhere..

Even though ancient cultures accepted everyone, the modern day religious, who should know better, continue to condemn.

If we're truly going to have an Old Testament marriage, we need to sell our daughters to husbands and allow multiple wives.

This is how one handles moralizing Bible thumpers (VIDEO)
