THE MEDICINAL BENEFITS OF ONION: Onion is one of the potent natural anti-biotics. It strengthens the immune system, thus helping to ward off common infections. For over 15 years, I have been recommending Onion for many sick people, and the results have been positive. Chew a small bulb of a raw onion every night. It’s as simple as that. As a starter, you may take half a bulb instead of one bulb and gradually increase it to one bulb.
Sometimes moms miss out on what could be joy-filled moments because they are concerned they aren’t measuring up to other moms. But God’s Word says it’s unwise to make comparisons (see 2 Corinthians 10:12).
He doesn’t want you to be like other moms. He wants you to celebrate the fact that you are unique!
Every person has special gifts and talents. And at the same time, we are all surrounded by people who have different gifts and abilities that we don’t have.
Insecurity and a lack of confidence will not only steal your ability to enjoy other people’s gifts—it will cause you to feel inadequate and may even keep you from pursuing the wonderful life that God has planned for you.
God made you one-of-a-kind and wonderful in your own way. So cultivate your strengths, gifts, and personalities, and pass that confidence on to your children by appreciating and encouraging their uniqueness.
You don’t have to be perfect. Just do the best that you can and remember that God will do what you can’t as you trust in Him.
It’s easy to get stuck thinking what could’ve, would’ve, or should’ve been, or spend time wishing things were different than they are. But like worrying, wishing is a waste of time.
Life is always more enjoyable and fulfilling when we choose to cultivate an attitude of gratitude and contentment.
I am not encouraging you to settle for situations that need to be improved, but I am urging you to accept the way God made you and the life He has given you.
The truth is, nobody has the perfect life.
Decide today to take the first step toward learning to enjoy your life by making the most of what you have. It also helps to embrace the ordinary—to delight in little things, to appreciate small blessings other people might overlook.
Whatever situation you find yourself in—and no matter what is happening with your children, you always have access to the unlimited, unconditional love of God.
Love is the greatest gift a mom can give. Yet all too often, moms are running on empty, trying to give their children what they haven’t received for themselves.
Throughout the years, God has encouraged me to get filled up spiritually in a variety of ways.
I started by studying what the Word says about His love, and made a point to declare out loud several times a day “God loves me.” It felt uncomfortable at first, but doing this helped me embrace the truth of God’s love. I encourage you to do this too.
Say to yourself “God loves me,” and let it sink in. Repeat it often: when you awake in the morning, when you go to bed at night, and throughout the entire day. Look at yourself in the mirror, point to yourself, call yourself by name, and say, “God loves me.”
You can also keep a book of remembrance filled with special things God does for you. Include the little things as well as major things. And read over your list at least once a week to keep yourself encouraged.
Read some good books about God’s love. After God gave me a personal revelation about His love for me, one of the first messages I ever taught was about the love of God. Through that experience I wrote a book called, Tell Them I Love Them.
Pray for the Holy Spirit, Who is our Helper and Teacher, to give you a personal revelation of God’s love.
Always remember, you’re not alone. God is always with you. Lean on Him for the grace and wisdom to follow His lead. He’s the best teacher, comforter, confidant and encourager there is, and He can give you all the peace, patience and confidence you need to succeed.
When your confidence is in Him, you can truly enjoy every minute of your journey.
Bringing Up Your Children with Peace, Patience and Confidence
At one time or another, every mom has felt lacking in her ability as a parent. It begins with caring for your newborn. Am I doing this right? And then continues with toddler tantrums all the way through the teenage years. Am I making the right decisions? Are my kids going to turn out all right? When they make mistakes, will they know that God is on their side? Even when our children are grown-ups, they’ll forever be our children.
Liana Werner-Gray a sought-after speaker and advocate for natural healing using a healthy diet and lifestyle, outlined 26 Ways To Improve Mouth, Throat And Jaw Health.
HEALING TOOLS FOR THE JAW, MOUTH, AND THROAT
1. ENJOY YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW IN THIS MOMENT
We can still enjoy our life even when we have a problem such as a health issue. Even if we are in pain we can still enjoy our life. When we think “I can’t enjoy my life until this problem goes away”, we take the joy out of life and we don’t always know when the problem will go away. You have permission to enjoy your life right now.
2. DRINK A GREEN DRINK EVERY DAY
No matter how you feel, force yourself to drink a green juice or green powder drink every single day. This commitment can cause major transformation because it is providing the body with so much nutrition at an instant cellular level. And we never feel guilty after drinking a green juice, it makes us feel better immediately and gives us peace of mind.
3. CHAKRA HEALING
In terms of chakra healing, the jaw, mouth and throat are related to the communication area of our being. So issues here can indicate trapped and blocked energy. Wearing turquoise necklaces and thick soothing scarves are very comforting. Look at pictures and photos of bright blue turquoise which helps with healing and strengthening throat chakra issues.
4. RELEASE TRAPPED ENERGY
Trapped energy in the jaw can present suppressed anger, frustration, confusion and resentment towards ourselves or other people. Write out a list of everyone you feel like has sinned against you, or hurt you. Hand them over to God and show God that you feel these people really hurt you and you are so angry at them. Let God deal with it so it isn’t staying trapped in your throat and jaw.
5. CAST YOUR CARES ON GOD
Cast your cares on God and release it from your jaw. We are not meant to suffer or stress, we have been designed to be able to be joyous in all moments of our life, so learning how to offload stress as soon as it comes can keep sickness out of our body. Write out everything you hate about yourself and your life right now with the intention to hand it over to God to take it out of your body. Release all the hate. Write down any thoughts you have about yourself that you know are not healthy. Cry, scream, yell, communicate it all to God, it’s a safe place for us to communicate and everything to be absorbed. God will handle it and take care of it for us and we will be guided when to take action or to communicate to a particular person.
6. IMPLEMENT THIS AFFIRMATION
Repeat affirmations in the morning in the mirror “I love you (YOUR NAME), I really really love you.” Thanks to Louise Hay.
7. REPLACE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS
Whenever you have a negative thought about yourself, think “Ok but I still love you (YOUR NAME).” We can still love ourselves even though our lives or situations may not be perfect.
8. KNOW YOU ARE LOVED
Relax right now and rest in knowing this: You are loved unconditionally by God and the Universe. No matter what you have done or haven’t done, if you have hurt people or they have hurt you, you are still loved and you are forgiven. A new life and opportunity is available to you. We were designed to make mistakes, to learn and grow. Know and understand that there is peace right here, right now, and is available to us in EVERY-SINGLE-MOMENT. We can align ourselves with the peace, but don’t get frustrated if you don’t feel peace right now, know that you will feel peaceful and joyful again soon.
9. GARGLE WITH SALT WATER
It kills bad bacteria and viruses in the mouth. It makes the mouth feel alkaline and healthy.
10. BRUSH YOUR TEETH
Brush your teeth morning and night (use organic toothpaste of course – check out the Bentonite Clay toothpaste, it’s called Earthpaste). Bentonite clay will absorb heavy metals and parasites.
11. MAKE A MOUTH PUTTY
Make a putty of bentonite clay and coconut oil and fill your mouth with it for 20 minutes and then dispose. This is very soothing and comforting for the mouth.
12. GO OUT IN NATURE
Take a walk, get outside and enjoy the sunshine.
Get into a state of love, be around someone you love and do something you absolutely love.
14. EAT SOMETHING EXCITING AND NOURISHING
Make some Cashew Ice Cream Bites with Chocolate Sauce! Gluten free, dairy free and guilt free. A plant-based recipe in my new book 10-Minute recipes that is high in antioxidants, soothing, uplifting and delicious when we crave ice cream.
15. EAT SOME IMMUNE BOOSTING FOODS
Take oregano oil to kill viruses and bacteria. Cook with sage and oregano. Make a Vegetable soup that is immune boosting with cumin, turmeric, sage and oregano. Eat something raw like a vibrant piece of fruit or some crunchy vegetables. It’s amazing what living food can do for our healing immediately.
16. SAY GOODBYE TO THE OLD YOU
Imagine closing the door right now on this chapter of your life. You have learned new things just from reading this piece, and you are releasing pain, inflammation, and suffering in your body. Open a new chapter.
Know you can move forward confidently and your new future is brighter, healthier and happier than you have ever experienced before.
God is helping you to end unhealthy cycles that may have caused suffering in your life whether it was an addiction to unhealthy food, people who may be constantly hurting you, or destructive thoughts about yourself.
17. BE OPEN TO NEW THOUGHTS
Agree that it is unacceptable to think such hurtful negative thoughts towards yourself.
18. GET CONTROL
Say out loud “I have control over my habits, they do not have control over me.” Even if it’s not true yet, it will become so.
19. TAKE AN EPSOM SALTS BATH
Soak in the goodness.
20. SOAK IN SALT WATER
Take a sea salt bath like Redmond Real Salt, or soak in the ocean
21. USE THE SUNSHINE
Lie in the sunshine and absorb it through your third eye chakra and throat chakra. Imagine the sunshine is going into your cells and zapping out the inflammation like star dust leaving it glowing and strong. Stick your tongue out at the sun and absorb Vitamin D right onto the tongue.
22. START THE DAY WITH OIL PULLING
Use coconut oil or sesame seed oil.
Pray or ask the Universe for help to relieve you from this situation. See it possible, and know it is possible.
Sleeping in pitch black and completely disconnecting to recharge is another healing remedy in this situation.
25. ASSESS YOUR TONGUE
Do you have a layer of white build up or bumps on the back of your tongue? This is a sign or oral candida or oral thrush. This is caused by excess bacteria build up. If this is the case:
Drink: Green tea, bentonite clay, activated charcoal (and swish in mouth), ginger tea, green juice (without an apple or sweetness).
Eat: Chew on raw ginger, raw garlic, onion (raw and cooked)
Cut out refined white sugar all together. Only eat natural sugars like dates, fruits, maple syrup, honey and coconut sugar when you absolutely have to have sugars.
26. DO WHAT NEEDS TO GET DONE
Continue with your mission even though you don’t “feel” like it. Don’t let work or bills pile up which will just cause more stress to your life. Do what needs to get done and even if you think “I really hate my life right now because I have to do the dishes” do it anyway even though you hate it. Even if you feel like dying, sleeping forever, hiding, still make yourself a herbal tea or green drink. Do the things you know you will be proud of later. This will help you get through the “stuck” periods.
Some might find it difficult or even repugnant to initiate a forthright conversation with a loved one about treatment plans at the end of life. I urge you to overcome this resistance.
You check into a hospital for a routine procedure. They ask you if you have a living will. You say no. They slide a form in front of you with simplistic questions such as: Do you want to be resuscitated if you go into cardiac arrest? Do you want mechanical ventilation if you are unable to breath? Do you want nutrients and fluids supplied to your body if you’re unconscious? Your gut tells you the questions are superficial. If CPR could revive you and you could live decently for a while longer, yes, you’d want it. If you’d die anyway an hour later, then no. If ventilation was a temporary measure to help you overcome an acute condition, yes. If you were permanently unconscious and never able to breathe again on our own, then perhaps no. And food and water? Of course you want to be fed. What’s the alternative, starvation? You don’t get much help from the check-in clerk. And hospital healthcare managers give you ideologically-laden advice such as “think about your values…and what you feel would make your life not worth living” (from the Mayo Clinic website). “Life not worth living!?,” you ask, “Where does that idea come from? Not from Catholic faith.” But you recall that your Aunt Agatha didn’t have an Advance Directive and she was subjected to aggressive and obviously-futile treatments at the end of her life and suffered unnecessarily. You’re pretty sure that if she’d been asked she’d have said: “Enough’s enough. Let me go to God!” But she was unconscious. You fear that if you don’t fill out the form, something like this might happen to you. What should you do? Advice for Catholics: If you can avoid using
Living Wills and POLST ( MOST ) forms, by all means do so. Their simplistic check-box format poses unacceptable risks from both the perspective of good medical decision-making and good ethical decision-making. They risk binding the hands of medical professionals to non-treatment decisions that are not in the best interests of patients. But this does not mean that Catholics should be unprepared for end-of-life crises. I recommend that all Catholics who are able should do the following three things:
First , execute in writing a Health Care Power of Attorney ( HCPA) assigning a proxy decision maker—sometimes called a “surrogate”—to act as your healthcare agent in the event that you become incapable of making informed decisions. You can do this yourself without costly legal fees. Just make sure that your HCPA is adequately specific and your signature is validly witnessed. Here are a few things you might include. Invest your proxy with full authority to make healthcare decisions on your behalf, including but not limited to the power to:
(1) consent to, or refuse, or withdraw consent to, any type of medical care, treatment, surgical procedure, diagnostic procedure, medication and the use of mechanical or other procedures that affect any bodily function, including, in appropriate circumstances, life-sustaining procedures. [*Note: this power does not extend to the refusing of properly “ordinary means” of care, defined in Catholic teaching as forms of care or treatment that promise a “reasonable hope of benefit” and are “not excessively burdensome.” The Catholic Church teaches that the administration of food and water is always ordinary care unless and until one’s body no longer can assimilate them, at which time their administration becomes futile and is no longer obligatory];
(2) request, receive, and review any information regarding your physical or mental health, including but not limited to medical, hospital and other records; and to consent to or authorize the use and disclosure of such information;
(3) employ and discharge your health care providers;
(4) authorize your admission to or discharge (including transfer to another facility) from any hospital, hospice, nursing home, assisted living facility or other medical care facility;
(5) authorize that you be discharged from a medical facility and be brought home and cared for at home;
(6) take any lawful actions necessary to carry out these decisions. You may also want to state that the authority of your agent is subject to no limitation except the law of God, the authoritative teaching of the Catholic Church, and your agent’s own conscience. Second, ensure that your proxy not only is willing to direct all relevant medical decisions in accord with Catholic faith and morals, but understands what doing so means. Frequently the limiting factor in legal disputes over end-of-life decisions comes down to uncertainty of the wishes of the patient. Remove all uncertainty. Make your wishes known both orally and in writing as clearly as possible to your proxy and to other loved ones. If you are uncertain about Church teaching on end-of-life decision-making, speak to your parish priest, or an informed Catholic medical professional, or contact trustworthy groups like the Catholic Medical Association, or your diocesan moral theologian, or, if nothing else is available, directly contact your local bishop. Third , in the event that you or your proxy are faced with a situation in which the judgment of a hospital ethics committee or other hospital decision makers seems to conflict with your faith or morals, don’t be afraid to mount a legal challenge in court. If you are reticent because of the cost of legal representation, consult with a reliable Christian advocacy ministry such as Alliance Defending Freedom, Christian Legal Society , and American Center for Law and Justice. You might even contact one of the 50 state affiliates of National Right to Life .
Some might find it difficult or even repugnant to initiate a forthright conversation with a loved one about treatment plans at the end of life. I urge you to overcome this resistance. Because a large majority of medical resources in U.S. healthcare are consumed on end-of-life treatments for the elderly, secular medicine, fueled by Obamacare, and with the support of the medical insurance industry, is investing enormous energy in publicizing and distributing secular tools for end-of-life decision making. The tools are invariably skewed in the direction of refusal of life sustaining treatments. Although flagrant examples of aggressive overtreatment still exist, U.S. healthcare is travelling rapidly and ineluctably in the direction of a culture of refusal. Without conscientious advance planning, some will find the pressure to check the “refusal” box on these documents hard to resist. —
