Remnant Survival: Natural Remedies – Cinnamon and Honey

A+M+D+G

Cinnamon and Honey 
Honey is the only food on the planet that will not spoil or rot. It will do what some call turning to sugar. In reality honey is always honey. However, when left in a cool dark place for a long time it will do what I rather call “crystallizing”. When this happens I loosen the lid, boil some water, and sit the honey container in the hot water, off the heat and let it liquefy. It is then as good as it ever was.

Never boil honey or put it in a microwave. To do so will kill the enzymes in the honey. 
~ Bet the drug companies won’t like this one getting around.~

Facts on Honey and Cinnamon
It is found that a mixture of honey and Cinnamon cures most diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also accept honey as a very effective medicine for all kinds of diseases.
Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases.

Today’s science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients.
Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada , in its issue dated 17 January,1995 has given the following list of diseases that can be cured by honey and cinnamon as researched by western scientists:

HEART DISEASES

Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread, instead of jelly and jam, and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack. Also, those who have already had an attack, if they do this process daily, they are kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as you age, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and veins.
ARTHRITIS

Arthritis patients may take daily, morning and night, one cup of hot water with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. If taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University , it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week, out of the 200 people so treated, practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain, and within a month, mostly all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis started walking without pain.

BLADDER INFECTIONS

Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder.

CHOLESTEROL

Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol patient, was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol is cured. According to information received in the said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.

COLDS

Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and clear the sinuses.

UPSET STOMACH

Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears stomach ulcers from the root.

GAS

According to the studies done in India and Japan, it is revealed that if Honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.
IMMUNE SYSTEM

Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacterial and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of Honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacterial and viral diseases.

INDIGESTION

Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.

INFLUENZA

A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural ingredient which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu. 

LONGEVITY

Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Take four spoons of honey, one spoon of cinnamon powder, and three cups of boiling water to make a tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Life spans also increase and even a 100 year old, starts performing the chores of a 20-year-old.

 

SKIN INFECTIONS

Applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin infections. 

 

CANCER

Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder for one month three times a day. 

FATIGUE

Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens, who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts, are more alert and flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, taken daily after brushing teeth and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M. when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, increases the vitality of the body within a week.

BAD BREATH

Gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water, so  breath stays fresh throughout the day.

HEARING LOSS

Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal parts restores hearing. Remember when we were kids? We had toast with real butter and cinnamon sprinkled on it!

Survival – Heavenly Remedies

+AM+DG+

In the times to come, natural medicines will aid us alongside Faith, Prayer, the Sacramentals and Holy Water.

Two excellent antibiotics: Our Lady has revealed* that when plagues come, we should ingest a raw clove of garlic every morning or oil of oregano.

If you are sick, sprinkle the food with Holy water.

Blessed salt should be used in cooking and to sprinkle on food.

Oil of the Good Samaritan: (prevents contagion)

This does not cure diseases but is an excellent prevention for sore throats or sneezing;

It is good for contact with people who have contagious diseases  by bacteria;

For airborne virus, tonsillitis or the flu

How to use:

To purify the air, apply with a spray bottle or diffuser or a few drops in a pan of boiling water;

Do not use for children under 3 years, or pregnant women.

Don’t apply pure oil directly to the skin.

Also can be put on a piece of cloth, dust mask or a few drops on the pillow.

A few drops can be applied to the temples, throat, behind the ears, arm[pits, abdomen, joints of sole of foot.

Preparation of Oil of Good Samaritan

Mix 5 essential oils:

Cinnamon (use only a half measure, because it is irritating);

Lemon; Clove; Rosemary and Eucalyptus.

Then add 5 times this amount of a base oil such as:

Olive oil, almond oi, or mineral oil.

Mix together with a wooden spoon until all are evenly mixed.

Prepare in a cool place, wear gloves and use a glass bowl.

Try a little of the mixture on your forearm.

If skin reddens, wash with plenty of water and lavender oil. Gradually, the redness will disappear.

If this happens add more base oil.

Before Use:

Do not expose oils to the air for any length of time, keep them in a tightly closed amber glass container to prevent evaporation. Keep out of reach of children.

Before each use, move the container softly to mix oils. Do not shake vigorously!!!

How to prepare for your short term food needs

 Short-term needs (2 weeks)

Remember, that after the Warning, many businesses will be closed. It is very likely that there may not be power.The messages have warned us to have enough food for a 2 week period. This is just for starters.

The famine is till to come after that, as well as the Mark of the Beast (of Book of Revelation), which will prevent anyone who does not have it from buying or selling. (this is also found in the Bible – Revelation). The book of Truth explains it all.

You need to take the steps to ensure you have two weeks’ worth of water and a stocked two week emergency pantry!

There will be times where there will be calamities that will impact you for short durations and keeping yourself level-headed to make a 3-course meal will be the last thing on your mind…

It is important to have ready-to-eat foods that require no refrigeration. (You might not be able to depend on power)

  • That could be tinned meats [turkey, ham, chicken, fish];
  • Long-life milk/powdered milk
  • Canned soup [some of these are meals in a can]
  • Tinned vegetables
  • Peanut butter,vegemite.
  • Cold cereals.

Have TWO WEEKS of such food at ALL TIMES.

Rotate your supplies.

If you budget 3 jars of peanut butter for your two-week stash…then when you open a jar, open the oldest. And replace it with a new jar so you always have 3 jars on hand.

Apply this approach to all the goods you earmark for this purpose in your 2-week stash.

Task: Determine the needs of your family for a two week period…

What do you eat?

How many mouths to feed?

Figure out what it takes to give you two weeks’ worth.

Buy it, place it in its own shelf, pantry, etc.

When one item is consumed, replace it the next time you do grocery shopping.

How to prepare for your water needs

+AMDG+

Short term needs:

1 U.S. gallon [4 litres] per person/per day.   Multiply by 14.

This is the basic amount of water one should have on hand for the short-term emergencies at all times.

That amount takes care of drinking water,

water-based beverages like coffee and juice,

water for personal hygiene that contacts your mouth

and any water needed for cooking meals.

Because the containers you would put tap water in will not be sanitized, the preference here is to bottled water.

If you have a method of filtering the water, then bottling your own tap water is perfectly fine.

If you have the space, consider bottling extra water for flushing toilets especially if you live in an area with frequent power outages in storms.

 Long term Water Needs

For extended periods when electricity is not available to operate water pumps, one must have a backup plan to acquire water and purify it. If you are fortunate to have a nearby spring or artesian well then your water needs have been answered.

Water as an appetite suppressant: Drink two glasses of water about 30 minutes before meal time to help reduce your appetite and allow you to consume less food thereby extending your food rations.

Purifying Water
For drinking and cooking water… If you are drawing water from a spring then the water may be potable straight out of the ground…but in all other cases, boiling or heating the water to 165F is not enough to purify it.

Heating water to 165F for 10 minutes, will kill all living organisms. Unfortunately, heating the water, in of its own, does not make it safe to drink as it does not remove contaminants such as minerals, oils, toxins, etc that could have polluted the water and that may be toxic.

To properly purify water, there are a couple options:

1. Filter the water.

There are manufacturers like Berkey and LifeStraw who make water filters that remove pathogens, bacteria AND contaminants. Berkey is made of steel; Lifestraw is made of plastic. If you are at a permanent location, then something like a Berkey makes sense. If you are on the move, LifeStraw is more portable. P.S. This document is not an endorsement for any specific vendor. Products listed are to help in your research for your needs. http://www.berkeywaterfilters.com/bigberkey.html http://www.buylifestraw.com/

2. If either of the above is not a solution, then charcoal, cotton [t-shirts, cheesecloth], etc...method could be attempted to filter water…though its more crude and likely needs repeated cycles…filter, boil, filter, boil… to get contaminants out. Its success as a drinking water source depends on many factors and is not as reliable as the previous method. http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-purify-your-water/?ALLSTEPS

Water Catchment

Look around where you live. Where does water go when it rains? Is there heavy dew in the evening? Does it rain frequently? Do you have rain gutters?

Now that you have looked, what method would allow you to catch water?

Here are some suggestions: –

Rain barrel,

water jugs,

clean containers to catch rain water from your eaves and roof top. –

Clean tarps / plastic laid on the ground to catch the dew. –

Clean tarps / plastic laid on a slope whisking rainfall into a gutter or through the bottom end that drains into a container –

Filling water jugs at a nearby lake or water course. – Melting snow in a pot on a woodstove, or in a warm space. P.S. Do not eat snow as a source to quench thirst. Melt it first. Snow dehydrates you and lowers your core body temperature. –

Well with a hand pump where you can draw water manually.

Depending on where you are located, other options may be available. If necessary, be creative.

Water Purification Tablets:

For emergency situation, when boiling water is not possible or for added security, water purification tablets can help. The better-known tablets take care of any harmful living organisms. Any toxins or metals present in the water are not neutralized or removed with water purification tablets.

To remove toxins and contaminants, filter the water through a coffee filter or cotton (t-shirt). You may need to do this a few times. If the water is clear, you may skip the additional filtration step.

Prepare to look after your Health

+AMDG+

This might be difficult – especially for those who refuse the chip (or the ‘mark of the beast’ as it is named in Scripture). If we are part of the remnant, we will be on the outer of society.

We may not have access to our normal medications. Some things you can stock up on, but others you can’t get without a prescription, and (at least here in our country) you can’t fulfill prescriptions ahead of time and keep them in the cupboard. We have to start researching and planning now – to look for natural remedies or health store products that we can store.

Please don’t hesitate to share any ideas/ expertise you may have. You can contact us via the contact form on the menu bar.

Below is the advice from our “Raising Awareness” friend.

Special health needs

Do you or a family member have specific ailments? Asthma, allergies, etc. Assess the needs of those in your family and do your best to have what is needed for as long as possible. Renew prescriptions as soon as refills are available. Ask your doctor for prescription to cover more days to minimize dispenser fees.

Medications & First Aid

Each home should have a standard first-aid kit with the usual bandages and gauzes. What is needed beyond that will vary according to individuals and family. Answer the following and use your answers as a guide:

  • Are you prone to illness?
  • Do you need prescription medications?
  • Is a member of the family prone to injuries?
  • Consider what you have purchased medication for in the past 12 months.
  • Are these illnesses that recur time after time, seasonally, or genetically?

Personal Hygiene and Toiletries

For this section, the needs will vary, yet the basics will be the same.

Here are checklist items for toiletries and personal hygiene:

  • soaps to wash self and to wash clothing;
  • toothpaste and toothbrushes;
  • shaving cream and razor, if applicable;
  • toilet paper, towels, and
  • method and tools to wash clothing.
  • Ladies may need feminine hygiene products.
  • If using an outhouse, toilet paper rolls can be placed in empty coffee tins to keep them dry and spider-free.

Coconut Oil for Longevity.

+AMDG+

Coconut oil seems to be the best oil for storing purposes.
Refined Coconut Oil lasts for 2 – 3 Months past the printed date

Virgin or Extra-virgin Coconut Oil lasts  Indefinitely.

Of course, coconut oil lasts for a shorter period of time if it is not stored properly. Containers usually have a best before date which is a date set by the manufacturer to guarantee best product quality and not an expiration date or an expression of safety.

Use your senses to determine if coconut oil has gone bad. There is always a rancid smell to spoiled oil which you will notice when opening the jar. The white oil will also begin to turn slightly yellow in color.

Virgin or extra-virgin varieties last for years after the “best-by” date, at least 3-5 and some manufacturers say it is indefinite.

Coconut oil should be stored in the pantry. It can be safely stored in either a liquid form, which it is in warmer climates (above 76°F), or in a solid state, which it is in cooler climates. Either form of storage is fine.

Coconut oil can help kill harmful bacteria and viruses,
