Again Nigella Sativa Found Successful in the Treatment of Candida Albicans

Candida albicans must not be taken lightly.  Candida is a fungus and fungus is one reason people get cancer. There are many different types of candida from vaginal to oral.  

Even inflammation of the esophagus may be caused by candida, a potentially deadly disease.  If the esophagus swells enough to cause breathing difficulties and possibly lack of oxygen to the brain, a stroke may be caused.  Nigella sativa has been tested many times in the past and those studies have shown that this anti-fungal herb is successful in treating candida albicans.

Recently the European Journal of Hospital Pharmacy tested Nigella sativa, acqueous, methanolic and chloroform extracts on 20 different strains of candida to see which alternative therapy was the most successful.

Nigella sativa is an herb that has been used for thousands of years and is grown in the Middle East.  Some of its main properties are:
  • Anti-fungal
  • Anti-diabetic
  • Bronchodilator
  • Antioxidant
  • Herpatoprotective
  • Lipid lowering
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Analgesic properties

The researchers isolated 20 different strains of candida and tested with the above mentioned extracts.  The different strains were collected from patients in the Craiova Emergency Hospital and tested. Aqueous, methanolic and chloroform extracts were made from the seeds of Nigella sativa, in decreasing dilutions, in which Wattman filter paper discs were soaked and dried and then used to achieve the antifungal graph by using the Kirby-Bauer diffusion technique. Simultaneously, the testing was repeated using standard antifungal disks (Becton Dickinson) and the two sets of results compared. The antifungal effect was assessed by measuring the diameter of the inhibition zone, noting the concentration per disk.

The results showed that Nigella sativa had the best results followed by chloroform extracts.  The aqueous extracts showed no anti-fungal activity. The end results showed again that Nigella sativa was successful as a treatment for anti-fungal diseases.

Further Notes on Cancer Diets

Where many patients go wrong when using Nigella sativa is when treating the illness, they do harm.  What does this mean?  In medicine the oath of office is to do no harm.  In natural remedies you must apply the same procedure in how you treat the illness.  Nigella sativa was found positive in 20 different strains.  The strain was taken outside of the body and tested.  You cannot eat a diet full of sugar and have the same results.

Ridding candida can be done in a relatively short time if you follow a healthy diet.  This diet should be no sugar for the first three weeks and then a gradual consumption of fruits and starchy foods.  I cannot recommend sugar at any point of your diet as sugar is just plain unhealthy.  Fruit juices should also be avoided as they are unhealthy and all sugar.

Other treatments have shown that a low fat diet is suggested for the elimination of candida.

Dangerous Suicidal Thoughts: Guidelines and Tips for Recovery


Teenage suicide is on the news a lot lately.  Bullying should never be tolerated and if you are a witness to a bullying and do nothing, you are just as much to blame.  Ellen DeGeneres and many other stars are behind the movement to stamp out this kind of behavior.

Suicide is one of the top reasons that teenagers die in America.  It is number 11 on the charts of the most common deaths.  Most people commit suicide at a time of depression, hopelessness and most often when they are hooked on drugs or alcohol.  It is a call for help in most cases. It is not always a means of escape, it is much more.  Escape means trying to run away from something. Most of the time suicide is a running to something which is just the opposite.

White men are in the highest risk category, but women and teens report more attempts.  If someone mentions suicide, take them seriously because it just might be the last time you talk to them. Many attempts will be taken tonight, will you be one of them?

If you are contemplating suicide, read this article.  You are not alone, you are wanted and you most especially are loved.  I have been there and I know how you feel? I contemplated suicide some 20 years ago and am very glad I did not.  Sad times will pass, days will get better and the sun will shine again. 

At one time or the other, almost everyone has had suicidal thoughts. Some will hurt their self by cutting, harming or drinking too much. Others will hear voices telling them that they must die, that they are useless to everyone in this world. You must understand that there is hope and you can cope with this crisis. Tomorrows are possible with just a little planning.

Dangerous suicidal thoughts

Normally, you do not get to this point overnight. Thoughts of "I wanna die," come to you after serious and unforeseen incidences in most cases. Severe depression will come from many hardships and life trials, but they are not a reason to kill yourself.

After a series of events that have been too horrible to handle, you may become severely depressed. This extreme depression may cause you to withdraw from the world and create an internal loneliness. You may begin to slowly feel helpless and then, hopeless.

Things you do not want to hear

The things that you do not want to hear are "Cheer up, you have a lot to live for" and the word "No". Depressed people do not want to hear these words.

Steps to recovery

Positive thoughts

There are some positive things that you can do to recover if you still feel that you want to die. Try to think as positive as you can, and one way to do this is with affirmations, such as: "I am beautiful", "I did not cause my divorce", "My kitty is in heaven" or "I have the right to love again". Tell these to yourself over and over again.

Other things to do to help yourself recover are:
  • Get out of the house and do something that you enjoy, like eating ice cream.
  • Visit close friends and learn how to laugh.
  • Plan a trip to anywhere beautiful.
  • Stay away from negative people.
  • Find a new friend online.
  • Go on a diet of healthy eating.
  • Stay away from all abusive substances, such as liquor and drugs.
  • To be safe, hide all guns, knives and harmful objects.

Who to call for help

If you just cannot pull yourself out of your depression or simply want someone to talk to who will understand, then try calling one of these institutions:

United States:
UK:
  • National Suicide Prevention Lifeline - 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
  • National Hopeline Network - 1-800-SUICIDE (784-2433)
  • Samaritans UK - 084547 90 90 90
  • Lifeline Australia - 13 11 14
International Suicide Hotlines by Country.

Just make the call. 

If you just want to read about coping with suicide, go to this website: Suicidology.org 

There are so many people willing to help those in need. There should never be another young boy who kills himself because he was being harassed in school. What an awful situation when the mother of a child finds her son dead. How awful that day must of been. Let no one be alone this evening who is feeling suicidal. Let no child ever feel so hopeless that they have no alternative. Suicide is not an escape all the time, sometimes it is a great deal more.

How to Recover and Treat a Stroke or TIA with Nigella Sativa

Both stroke and heart disease are the two top causes of death worldwide.  They can come on suddenly with no symptoms at all or they may have symptoms that you would not associate with stroke, such as enlarged neck veins.  Enlarged neck veins may be a sign of heart failure, but in the story I am going to tell you, an impending stroke started with enlarged neck veins and ended in the patient surviving due mainly to mercy from Allah and their consumption of Nigella sativa daily.

What is a Stroke

A stroke happens when a portion of the brain is damaged, due to interruption of blood flow to the brain. When this happens the mental and physical abilities are hampered. There are three different types of strokes:
  1. Cerebral Thrombosis - This happens when an artery to the brain is narrowed down. This can happen because of atherosclerosis, plaque or deposit of fatty tissue.
  2. Cerebral Embolism - This one is also a block, but happens because of a foreign material or embolus.
  3. Cerebral Hemorrhage - This type of stroke happens not because the artery is blocked, but due to an artery that has burst or is leaking.

Here are the symptoms of a stroke:

This is a list of the most common symptoms, not the entire list.  
  • Sudden numbness, weakness, or paralysis of the face, arm or leg - usually on one side of the body 
  • Loss of speech, or trouble talking or understanding speech 
  • Sudden blurred, double or decreased vision 
  • Dizziness, loss of balance or loss of coordination 
  • Seizures, fainting or blacking out 

 

What is a TIA (Transient ischemic attack)

A TIA resembles a stroke as it has similar symptoms, but the TIA last for only a short time. Sudden numbness or weakness down one side of the body may last a few minutes or hours where in a stroke they last for over 24 hours. It is necessary to understand the difference as your life depends on this. TIAs may signal an impending stroke and should be treated with care. Nearly half of the patients who have TIAs, have a stroke within five years. (1)

 

Symptoms of a TIA

  • Dizziness
  • Tingling
  • Numbness
  • Blurred or Double Vision
  • Loss or use of one side.
  • Headaches

Suggested Treatment for Stroke and/or TIA

If you suspect you are having a stroke or even a TIA, first make a tea of cayenne.  Place one teaspoon of cayenne in a cup of water and heat.  Drink this down as quickly, so you can to open up your veins.  Lie down, especially if you are dizzy.  If you have insurance, call for an ambulance immediately. 

 A stroke can destroy your life or even cause death and this is nothing to be waiting around on.


Should you be like me and prefer natural methods, then make sure you drink the cayenne three times a day. Do not eat any dairy, meat or fat.  Stay on a diet of vegetables and fruits for the first week and watch your diet carefully afterwards.  Even with these natural methods you will be very sick for the first week.  Bed rest is necessary.

Suggested Supplements to Treat Stroke

Periwinkle is one of the best herbs to use for stroke. The botanical name is "vinca major." Periwinkle will naturally improve the blood flow to the brain area. Periwinkle will help to decrease all excess bleeding disorders and is useful for hemorrhaging, excess menstrual flow, nosebleed, bleeding gums, and all other bleeding disorders.

Other herbs that are useful are: Luft (leaves of the luffah scrubber), ginger, cinnamon, Butcher's Broom, gotu Kola, Goldenseal, Thistle, Gingko biloba and Mullein Leaf.

Suggested Supplements are: Vitamin D3, C, selenium, L- Carnitine, CQ10, magnesium, olive leaf and grape seed. 




Nigella Sativa and Stroke

How my friend survived is a gift from Allah.  She takes Nigella sativa regularly and I attribute her success to this simple procedure.  As I have stated many times by taking Nigella sativa regularly when you get a severe illness, the illness is cured easily and in this case it must be true.

Part of her wellness is attributed to taking black cumin oil (Nigella sativa) three times a day with honey or juice.  The oil is taken because it is 2 1/2 times stronger than the seeds and is concentrated.  If you are in the middle of a full blown attack, you may not have time to shop, lol, so use whatever you have.  Continue using Nigella for the rest of your life.

There have been many studies on the efficacy of Nigella sativa on stroke.  The studies were done on mice and the overall results showed satisfactory.  Nigella is an anti-inflammatory herb that treats the illness effectively.

What Causes a Stroke

African-American women at at a higher risk of stroke, according to statistics.  One out of every two African-American women may die from stroke compared to Caucasians or Whites. There are many causes of stroke which include, lifestyle, medication side effects, blood and oxygen being cut from the brain (my friend's reason), alcohol use, obesity and Artrial Fibrillation (AF) - abnormal heart rhythm. 
My friend has a neck injury and in her case sleeping wrong may have lead to her stroke.  A prolonged neck disc problem may sometimes be life threatening.

Conclusion:

What seem to help my friend the most was:
  • Daily cayenne tea
  • Nigella sativa
  • Lufft cooked and taken in capsules
  • Suggested Supplements
  • Diet changes
  • Rest
  • Elimination of Stress
Stress is the number one thing you must change.  Get rid of everyone who upsets you and even if it is your MOTHER.  Relax, enjoy and realize that life is short.  Giving up food is not the worse thing you could lose in your life.

Note: A stroke is a life threatening situation and it is imperative first you drink the cayenne and then get to a hospital as soon as possible.  Natural remedies are good for people like me who abstain from hospitals and doctors or for those who simply cannot afford to go.  Millions of people worldwide do not have insurance.  The mere cost of an x-ray in some countries is more than a week's or even a month's food allowance.  I ask Allah to bless you and keep you well.

Beware of "Junk" Articles about Nigella Sativa

Nigella sativa is in demand and it is very popular with its anti-tumor abilities so every website in the world wants to write a blog post or something on the subject. Although many mean well, it is apparent that most know very little about curing cancer, black seed or other herbs and nutrients necessary.  You cannot take a few seeds with water and cure cancer.

Some of the claims are ludicrous and I use to be a consultant for a black seed company who had decent oil, but they knew nothing about how to use the product.  So if you know that black seed cures cancer, how do you take the seeds or the oil as it is necessary for cancer?  Many will self diagnose theirself and claim that they have faith and will just treat their own disease without any backing at all.

This is totally wrong and before long this very wonderful cure will be labeled a "Quack" theory based on misinformation on the web.  There are many things you should know when treating any disease, not just cancer.  First you should start with the basics and learn everything you can about these miraculous seeds whether you read every article on this blog, BUY MY BOOK or find a source of very good information.  You need to first understand how the seed cures and why it is so great.

It is not an aspirin you can take when you feel chest pains.  You need to know how to heat the seeds, how to take them properly and what other herbs and diet you should be following.  Even if you take the oil properly and then eat like a pig, you most likely will die.  Along with the cure came instructions for us on how to eat, how to live and how to worship.

First you must believe in the cure.  This is plain old faith healing.  Second you must know the precautions that go along with the cure and third you must know how to maintain your body with the proper foods and food combining.  The stomach is the reason for all disease. Treating the stomach will heal the body and through proper training beginning with honey you shall be well if God so deems it.

Another problem I have with these "Junk" articles is they never tell you how much to take and then we have deceptive bottle instructions by companies who are afraid of their shadow and then God help me I hate these people who want to buy the cheapest product on the market.  You get what you pay for, plain and simple.

So if you want to learn for free about black seed, read my articles on this blog. If you want to be well, then pray and ask God to heal you.  My whole healing came from prayer.  It starts with prayer and it ends with prayer.  I believe in miracles, in angels and I believe that there is a cure for all disease and hopefully you will soon believe so too.

Internist and Cardiologist Recommends Using Nigella Sativa Daily

Almost daily I get alerts telling me about the many uses of Nigella sativa (black cumin) and I am thrilled that the entire world is waking up to the miracle of this simple gift from Allah.  Although it has been used for more than 2000 years, people are just now beginning to see its true beauty.

Today I received an article about a Doctor in Hernando County, Florida, Dr. Adel M. Eldin, M.D., specializing in internal medicine and cardiology who recommends his patients take black cumin daily.

"It's possible to detect problems before there's an emergency and 95 percent preventable, given our knowledge, medications and lifestyle modifications," Eldin said.

But there's one problem, Medicare and other insurance companies don't cover preventive screenings without the presence of symptoms, he advised.

"Insurance focuses on illness, rather than wellness," he said. "Wellness is there for you."

"When you invest in your health, you won't have to be part of the insurance jungle out there." Eldin said. "I've spent five years introducing a new program that identifies risks, teaches preventive care and provides an on going partnership in healthy living."

Taking Black Cumin Before there is a Medical Emergency

High five for this doctor as he is emphasizing to take black cumin daily before you have a problem, like you would take a multi-vitamin or a B-12 supplement.  Living better, longer and healthier is possible with the right help and guidance.

If I accomplish nothing else in this life, but spread the truth of wellness about Nigella sativa, I have indeed done my part. I can only be pleased that I have lived long enough to see my hard work pay off.
