T-cells, a type of white blood cell that fights
off foreign invaders in your bloodstream. Having
low levels of zinc may leave you more
susceptible to pneumonia or other infections.
Zinc is a common treatment for the common cold.
While it most likely does not cure colds, it can
help relieve symptoms by reducing inflammation
in the nasal cavity. Additionally, zinc aids in
wound healing by maintaining skin and mucous
membranes, possibly preventing your risk of
chronic leg ulcers.

|Important Microwave Study
has been known for some years that the
problem with microwaved anything is not the
radiation people used to worry about, it's
how it corrupts the DNA in the food so the
body can not recognize it.
|Microwaves don't work different
ways on different substances. Whatever you put
into the microwave suffers the same destructive
process. Microwaves agitate the molecules to
move faster and faster. This movement causes
friction which denatures the original make-up of
the substance. It results in destroyed vitamins,
minerals, proteins and generates the new stuff
called radiolytic compounds, things that are not
found in nature.
So the body wraps it in fat cells to protect
itself from the dead food or it eliminates it
fast. Think of all the Mothers heating up milk
in these 'Safe' appliances. What about the nurse
in Canada that
warmed up blood for a transfusion patient and
accidentally killed him when the blood went in
dead. But the makers say it's safe. But proof is
in the pictures of living plants dying!!!
Reasons to dispose of your Microwave Oven
the conclusions of the Swiss, Russian and
German scientific clinical studies, we can no
longer ignore the microwave oven sitting in
our kitchens. Based on this research, one can
conclude this article with the following:
Continually eating food processed from a
microwave oven causes long term - permanent
- brain damage by 'shorting out' electrical
impulses in the brain [de-polarizing or
de-magnetizing the brain tissue].
2). The human body cannot metabolize [break
down] the unknown by-products created in
3). Male and female hormone production is
shut down and/or altered by continually
eating microwaved foods.
4). The effects of microwaved food
by-products are residual [long term,
permanent] within the human body.
5). Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all
microwaved food is reduced or altered so
that the human body gets little or no
benefit, or the human body absorbs altered
compounds that cannot be broken down.
6). The minerals in vegetables are altered
into cancerous free radicals when cooked in
7). Microwaved foods cause stomach and
intestinal cancerous growths [tumors]. This
may explain the rapidly increased rate of
colon cancer in UK and America .
8). The prolonged eating of microwaved foods
causes cancerous cells to increase in human
9). Continual ingestion of microwaved food
causes immune system deficiencies through
lymph gland and blood serum alterations.
10). Eating microwaved food causes loss of
memory, concentration, emotional
instability, and a decrease of intelligence.

If you feel down the outside of your throat
when it is sore, you will probably notice some
hard lumps in your throat area that are tender
to the touch. These are swollen lymph nodes.
The lymph nodes are swollen because the
lymphatic system has been draining away the
excess fluid from the inflamed tissues in your
throat, and that fluid contains toxic
The secret to relieving sore throat pain is to
reduce the inflammation in the throat and the
inflammation in the swollen lymph nodes.
I've relieved sore throats in as little as
twenty minutes using lymphatic drainage massage
on the throat. I start by pouring a little olive
oil into my palm, and adding a few drops of X-Plague
then placing my fingers just under my jaw at the
top of the throat. I use a very gentle, steady
downward pressure slowly "milk" the swollen
lymph nodes in the throat. Let your fingers
slowly drift down the sides of the throat to the
base. When you reach the collarbone, also rub in
between the ribs in the upper chest. There are
lymph nodes in between the ribs. Repeat the
process. This is a slow, gentle process and done
correctly causes some discomfort but no serious
pain. If the pain is to intense, ease up the

is a perennial herb from the mint family. It has
been found to be incredibly beneficial for
respiratory and bronchial illnesses, especially
sore throats. Horehound acts as an expectorant
which helps it loosen and clear away phlegm,
while it also stimulates bronchial secretions to
break up congestion.
Marrubiin, one of the compounds in horehound,
stimulates bronchial secretions thereby helping
to break up congestion. Research also indicates
that marrubiin acts as an antibiotic as well as
In addition to the respiratory system,
horehound is also beneficial for the digestive

horehound leaves and water, covered, for 25

4. Add the honey to the liquid, return to the
pot, and bring to a boil once again.
5. Once boiling reduce to a simmer.
6. Cook mixture, stirring constantly, until
the syrup reaches 300 degree F (this will take
a while). Or, if you’re like me and don’t have
a candy thermometer, use the “test” (see
7. Grease a cookie sheet with butter or
coconut oil and pour in the syrup
9. Allow lozenges to cool on pan.
10. Store in a cool, dry place.
To insure that the syrup has reached the right
temperature/consistency, I place just a drop
or two of the syrup into a bowl full of ice
water. If the syrup turns and stays hard (like
a cough drop) then you know it’s ready. If it
is still soft and sticky, it needs to keep
cooking. these lozenges will have a slightly
bitter taste. That is part of what makes them
so effective as an expectorant.
