Natural Remedies for Acne

Natural remedies for acne are many and some are powerful and effective and some are merely a help for this troublesome problem.  

When searching for an effective remedy look at the three suggested in this article: Black Cumin, Aloe Vera and Milk.

Acne is a pharmaceutical company's dream.  Millions of people every year run to the pharmacy to buy everything in the world to treat and help cover these very ugly, red, puss-filled breakouts.  

These break-outs may be minor irritations for some or they may be major heartaches.  Dermatologist offices are filled with people wanting to look normal again and the doctors will prescribe pharmaceutical medicines.  Natural remedies for acne are many and have no side effects, like highly marketed pharmaceuticals. 

Acne affects both men and women, young and old.  Acne is not prejudiced and may attack without any symptoms at all. Are there really any natural remedies that work?  Indeed there are.

Black Cumin Oil Remedies

Black cumin, also known as Nigella sativa has been used for thousands of years to treat acne and is my number one choice for natural treatments.  It is very inexpensive compared to doctors and pharmaceutical medicines and it is very easy to do. 

 Black cumin has more than 100 nutrients and vitamins and not only will it get rid of your acne, but it will also treat your entire body, prevent cancer, treat diabetes and even help with wrinkles.  These simple remedies listed will shock you in how little work it takes.

First make sure to drink some black cumin oil daily. 

You need to take 2 teaspoons of black cumin oil daily or 2 1/2 times more of the ground seeds.  Take your first dosage on an empty stomach 1/2 hour before breakfast. You can mix it with some raw honey or add it to a 1/2 cup of freshly squeezed juice. Take the second dosage before sleeping.

Steam Method:

Place two teaspoon in 2 liters of water and bring to boil. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly then place a towel over your head and inhale the steam.  This steam method will open up your pores..

Apple Vinegar Method:

Place 1 cup of raw apple vinegar in a pan along with 4 tablespoon of ground seeds.  Allow the vinegar to absorb the seeds for 8 to 12 hours.  Strain the vinegar from the seeds and add in an equal amount of black cumin oil.   Dab this mixture on the acne breakouts.  It is suggested to do this in combination with the steam method.

Black Cumin Alone:

The easiest method is to dab black cumin oil directly on the acne.  Use the best black cumin oil you can find.  

Aloe Vera for Acne

It has been proven that aloe vera can be used to treat acne, with improvements seen in as little as one week. Acne sufferers can see a remarkable improvement by simply breaking an aloe vera leaf and applying the watery gel to the acne lesions.

Some Simple Homemade Remedies Using Aloe Vera:

Acne Treatment - Rub the gel on the affected area twice a day. Your acne will improve within one week.

Body Rub - Cut open an aloe leaf, remove the gel out and rub it all over your body. Rinse off the gel after twenty minutes and feel the difference.

Cold Sores - Apply aloe vera to cold sores twice daily. The symptoms will be resolved within one day and cured within one week.

Diaper Rash - After a warm bath, massage the affected areas with aloe vera gel. You will see results within three days.

Eczema - Create a paste using the leaves of the aloe vera plant and apply to dry skin three times daily. You will see results in one month.

Skin Cancer - Apply the gel liberally to all affected areas. You will see results in three months.

Skin Wounds and Abrasions - Rub the gel onto wounds or abrasions twice a day. Improvement and healing will be observed within three days.

Power-Packed Energizing Green Smoothie Recipe:

1 cup of water
1 cup of spinach
1 banana
1 pear or any fruit you desire
1 leaf (enough to make 2-4 ounces of juice) of an aloe vera plant (the whole leaf)

Warnings and Precautions for Using Aloe Vera:

1. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not use the exterior portion of aloe vera leaves for treating ailments or creating drinks.

2. People who have hemorrhoids, ulcers, diverticulosis, colitis, Crohn's disease or irritable bowel syndrome should not use aloe vera without first consulting a physician.

Home Remedies

I have a neighbor who had severe acne and she was someone who was so afraid of her looks, as many are. I commented one day that she was in need of help badly.  I then saw her again in two weeks and her skin was white as snow and her acne was 80% gone.  I asked her what did she do and here is her remedy:
  • 1 large spoon of milk powder
  • 1 large spoon of water.

Mix well and dab on the acne.  Wash it off in one hour.  Yes, that is it.  Remarkably easy.

Another simple recipe with basil: For acne that hasn't responded to anything, steep 2-3 tsp. dried basil leaves in 1 cup boiling water, cool, and apply to affected area.

Healthy Quick Oatmeal with Black Cumin Oil

This is a very simple recipe that your will love. It is healthy and it is packed full of goodness.  Traditionally oatmeal is used by people on a diet, but few really realize how good it is for you. With adding in the flax seeds and the black cumin, you get more of a power pack.

Make sure to buy the best quality products when making your recipes.  There are many cheap quality oils on the market and they are worth "Zip!"  Never ever buy flax meal.  

Use good quality seeds and fresh grind them.  I have a Krups coffee grinder that I have had for years and I highly recommend it.  I just sent my mom one for her birthday and she is in "Pig Heaven!"

Krups Coffee Grinder

  • 1/2 cup quick oats (Quaker is the best in my opinion)
  • 1 1/2 cups of water
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of flax seeds, freshly ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black cumin oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon of honey

  1. Mix the honey and the black cumin oil together and set aside.  Freshly grind the flax seeds and set aside.
  2. Place the water in a pan and bring to boil along with the salt.  Add in 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon for goodness and more healing benefits.  Add in the oats and cook the oats for one 45 seconds only, stirring constantly.  
  3. Add in the flax seeds and mix well.  Cook for only 30 seconds.  Pour in a bowl right away and drizzle the honey and black cumin on top.
For added flavor try topping your oatmeal with some dried cranberries or fresh berries. This breakfast can be easily served with a large glass of freshly squeezed orange juice.

Natural Infertility Remedies from the Middle East

Infertility and sterility are huge problems in the Middle East. Too often women or men are unable to conceive. I have often wondered why the rate of infertility is so high here. 

 Could it be the water or just what is in the air? Either way there are many families who do not have children.  Many women will run to the doctor to try getting pregnant by insemination.  

The procedure is very expensive and the majority of the time it does not work.  I have several friends who have spent thousands and thousands of dollars on these procedures to be very disappointed.

Why are women so concerned? Because many men, not all will find a new wife who can give them children.  This is a heartbreaking situation for families to endure.  

Thankfully there are some natural remedies that do work in many of the cases.  These remedies should be tried before you spend thousands of dollars on doctors that may not work.

If you are a Muslim, Arab or live in the Middle East, one of the first things to consider is jinn.  If someone has placed black magic on you, you may not be able to conceive until the jinn is removed.  His job is to kill the unborn babies.  One of the signs of being possessed is a sudden change in your periods.  You may notice that your periods are irregular and suddenly occurring every two weeks.

Natural Remedies from the Middle East for Infertility

1.  This remedy is From Sheik Nazim.  It is a remedy that he suggests and I trust him emphatically.  It is an old fashion remedy using some simple items.  He suggests to take 4 kilos of dates and twice as much water.  Boil the dates down to half and then squeeze the juice through a cloth go get all the valuable water free.  Mix this water with 1/3 of a liter of carob juice.  Drink 1/2 cup of this water every morning and evening.  The water must be refrigerated.

2.  Black Cumin for Infertility.  Black Cumin or Nigella sativa has been proven to treat infertility and menstrual problems.  Taking black cumin in any form with treat this problem, but there are several "so called" perfect recipes on the web.  One website suggest you mix chamomile tea with black cumin.  Boil a tea of chamomile and black cumin together and drink two cups a day with honey. This mixture will increase sex drive and the male sperm count. 

Take 2 teaspoons of the black seed oil a day mixed with Manuka honey or a good quality raw honey.  Take the first teaspoon 1/2 hour before breakfast and the second teaspoon before sleeping.

Of course I always recommend Perfect Press Black Seed Oil.  

3.  Saffron Tea.  Another simple recipe is by drinking saffron tea.  Take one liter of water and add in one tablespoon of saffron.  Boil this water for 5 minutes and drink this tea the first 3 to 4 days of your period.

4.  Almonds and Walnuts with Honey.  The best way to increase sperm count for men is to take a large tablespoon daily of almonds, walnuts and honey.  This can be made up in advance using my black cumin energy mixture.  It has black cumin in it to help with infertility also.

No remedy works over night.  If after a few months you are not pregnant, then try one of the other ones listed.  Avoid coriander, eggplant, tomatoes, bell peppers and limit basil.  Reduce your weight if you are obese and take turmeric daily.  For men to increase the sperm count, take asparagus, dates and almonds.

Baldness and Hair Loss Remedies Using Black Cumin (Nigella Sativa).

Nigella sativa, also known as black cumin is known to treat thinning of hair, baldness and falling hair.  Nigella sativa has more than 100 nutrients and vitamins to replenish the skin and hair and will help you to have a mane of hair that you can be proud of.  

Like any remedy, not all remedies are effective on every person.  I have listed many remedies and if you find one does not work, then try another one.  Nigella sativa just may be the answer you have been looking for.

Melanie Grimes stated, "People lose about one hundred hairs each day. Because hair is made of many nutrients, those nutrients need to be replenished in the body in order for hair to grow. Hair contains protein, fat, water, and carbohydrates. 

Foods to prevent hair loss can be found in oats, molasses, liver, and whole grains. Because water is comprised of water, it is important to stay hydrated to stimulate proper hair growth. Hair growth is conditioned on genetics. Hair loss increases with age, but proper nutrition can help prevent hair loss, thinning hair and balding." 

Baldness and Hair Loss Remedies Using Nigella Sativa or Black Cumin

The following are remedies for baldness and hair loss for men and women unless specifically stated.  I personally only can testify to what I know and thankfully due to my using black cumin everyday have never had a hair loss problem and I am almost 60 years old and have no gray hair like most.  I do have a few streaks of gray on my side, but there is no need for me to color my hair ever.

1.  Put the black cumin oil directly on the bald spot.  This is the remedy I have published for a long time and in my book, but there are more. Leave on for 1/2 hour and then wash out.

2.  Make a concoction of 1/2 cold pressed extra virgin olive oil and 1/2 black cumin oil.  Rub on the bald spots.

3.  Mix and equal amount of henna and black cumin ground seeds.  Add in some vinegar and make a fine paste. Rub this on your balding spots.  Do this every other day and folk legends in the Middle East claim that you will have a thick mane.

4.  Place the black seeds in a skillet and heat until the seeds are bland.  Remove from the fire and grind the seeds finely in a coffee grinder.  I have a Krupps Coffee Grinder which I have had for years and love it.  You can buy one for less than $20.  After you have ground the seeds, add in equal amounts of olive oil and rub on the bald spots.

5.  Do you have hairloss problems? Try this very easy remedy.  Mix 1 teaspoon of Roobios red tea poweder and 1 teaspoon of black cumin oil.  Add a few drops of filtered water and mix well.  Massage this into your balding spots. Leave on for a few minutes. You may also want to try the Roobios red tea shampoo.

Use Roobios red tea and black cumin oil and a bit of water for baldness and hair loss.   

According to Mike Adams, "Rooibos powdered extract is made from the leaves and twigs of the Rooibos plant, which is grown entirely without pesticides or synthetic chemicals of any kind. 

It only takes a tiny amount of Rooibos powder mixed with water to make a deep red "tea-like" beverage that quenches thirst like nothing else. You can also mix it with any kind of milk (almond milk, cow's milk, rice milk, etc.), add a touch of sweetener, and you've got a delicious milk tea beverage that's super smooth." 

6.  Add 2 handfuls of black cumin seeds to 5 cups of water. Boil for 10 minutes. Let it cool down. Strain the seeds and disgard. Pour the black cumin water into a glass jar and add 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. Massage this mixture to your scalp at least twice a week. Let it stay on your scalp for 30 min  to 1 hour, and then wash your hair. You can keep the mixture in the refrigerator.

7.  Add 1.5 tablespoons of black cumin seeds to 3/4 cup of water and boil for 10 minutes. Let the mixture  cool down. Use a strainer to separate the seeds from the water. Add a raw egg yolk to the black cumin water and mix them very well until you get a homogeneous creamy solution. Optional: You can also add a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil to the mixture.

Massage the mixture into your scalp (you don't need to massage it to the hair, especially if your hair is long). When you are done with massaging this to all your scalp, let it stay for 30 min  to 1 hour. Then wash your hair. You can do this every week or every other week.

8.  Rub lime or lemon juice all over the balding spots and leave it for fifteen minutes, then wash it with shampoo.  After drying your hair thoroughly rub Black Seed oil all over the head. This is good for falling hair loss. 

9.   Rub the balding spots with lemon juice and leave on for 15 minutes.  Now massage a tiny bit (1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon) of black cumin oil on the balding spot and leave.

Sure Fire Way to Be Successful Regrowing Hair

While the above remedies are suggested to be the best available, the one thing that is evident throughout every post is that the suggestion to use the absolute best black cumin oil available.

I have read a few accounts where people did not have good luck with improving their hair condition and I am sure it all had to do with the product they were using.  If you want good results, use the best.

Moroccan Argan Oil for Beauty, Health and for Cooking

The rarest oil, besides Bulgarian Rose Otto Essential oil is Moroccan Argan Oil. I first heard of this oil from a customer of mine.  She was selling this oil at very high prices.  It cost much more than Nigella sativa and more even than olive oil.  So why was this very rare beauty oil so expensive?  

According to Natural News, " Argan oil is produced from the kernels of the tree and is one of the rarest and most expensive oils in the world. Berber women have used Argan oil for centuries to protect and nourish their skin, hair and nails from the harsh conditions in which they live. Now Argan oil is gaining popularity as a "miracle ingredient" in the Western beauty product industry. It has extremely high levels of Vitamin E and 80% fatty acids which make it perfect for healing many skin ailments as well as protecting against premature aging caused by oxidation."

There are two types of argan oils.  The cooking oil is less expensive, but the kernels are roasted before pressing and the cosmetic oil is pure 100 percent cold pressed, such as the one pictured to your left.  It only takes a very tiny bit to be effective and you and can add a few drops of the oil to your present creams and use it direct.  Many fail in the correct use of this oil by using too much and thus complaining it is too expensive and does not last long.

Skin Benefits of Argan Oil
  • Natural anti-aging properties
  • Increases elasticity
  • Minimizes fine lines
  • High in natural Vitamins A & E

Other Benefits of Argan Oil

Besides being good for your complexion and hair, you can cook with it and you can take it internally. There are many delicious meals that use this very desired culinary argan oil.  Top quality argan oil is not cheap.

Argan Oil, found only in Southern Morocco, has been sought after for years by chefs, top gourmets and enlightened home cooks for its delicacy. It has a characteristic nutty flavor and enhances the taste and aroma of many dishes. It is truly a rare and exotic treat.

Argan Oil is good for lowering cholesterol, improving blood circulation and the immune system.  Argan Oil has been used for reducing joint and muscle pain, stiffness and swelling. And it has antioxidants which help with the brain, dementia and Alzheimer's.  It is an all around good thing!!!

 Best Argan Oils Available

The major difference between the two grades of Argan oil is that the food grade Argan oil is roasted before it is grinded to extract the oil so as to make it edible. 

The cosmetic Argan oil grade is cold-pressed from raw Argon seeds and not roasted so as to retain its high amounts of essential fatty acids and medicinal properties. The species Argania once covered North Africa and is now endangered and under protection of UNESCO. Argan oil remains one of the rarest oils in the world due the small and very specific growing areas.

Method of extraction: Cold Pressed/Unrefined 

This rare and exquisite oil is meticulously expeller pressed from the fruit kernels of the Moroccan Argan tree. Argan oil is rich in natural tocopherols (vitamin E) and phenols, carotenes, squalene and fatty acids, making it a truly luxurious oil. Argan oil absorbs quickly and is often used in skin, nail and hair treatments to deliver deep hydration, strengthen brittle hair and nails, and prevent/reduce stretch marks.Certified Organic through OTCO.  This is a cosmetic only oil and not to be used for cooking.

Suggested Use

For external use only. Use as a daily moisturizer and skin treatment on clean skin. Best used on exfoliated skin. Massage one pump into each of the five facial points. Can also lightly massage a small amount under eye. Can be used as a whole body moisturizer as well as a hydrating nail treatment (moisturizes cuticles) and moisturizing hair treatment (controls frizz and protects hair from heat styling tools and environmental factors). As a massage oil, Argan oil proves highly beneficial for those suffering arthritis or rheumatism.


Watts Beauty Argan Oil

From Beauty Expert & Best Selling Author - Kat James, One of the most important things you can do to "get back your virgin skin" is to rebuild the skin's lipid barrier (which many anti-wrinkle products ironically destroy), both from the inside-out (with a clean, anti-inflammatory, and healthy fat-rich diet) and from the outside-in with topicals that actually feed and rebuild the lipid barrier of your skin. Because of it's unique lipid structure- including an anti-inflammatory (and anti-acne) sterol profile that no other oil possesses- nothing beats cold-pressed, organic argan oil in this category. 

I received a two ounce sample of Watts Beauty's ArganGold six months ago and am just getting to the bottom of the little bottle. Even after already using some of the best natural products out there, the addition of just a drop of ArganGold caused an immediate increase in the softness, "waterproofness," and glow of my skin. 

Other expensive products can mimic this with silicones or mineral oils, but at a price to the skin's health and an ultimately drying and irritating result. The artificial glow afforded by synthetic skin products washes off, stripping away your own real glow (protective sebum) with synthetic emulsifiers and washing it down the drain (that's a dirty little secret of synthetic skin products). 

But with Watts Beauty ArganGold, the glow is a part of your skin even after you wash it. ArganGold literally becomes your skin (your nails, or your hair). 

Natural Remedies for Worms - Coconut, Castor Oil and Black Cumin

I was looking through some of my old posts and found this one where a man used freshly ground coconut (1 tablespoon) and castor oil, yuk, yuk, yuk. You take this before breakfast. So eat the coconut 1/2 hour before breakfast and then drink a big dose of the castor oil three hours later.  If you have problems with castor oil like most, you can mix the castor oil with some tomato juice.  You will not notice it then.  Keep doing this remedy for 10 days or till you see or "feel" you are worm free.

My Remedy for Worms with Nigella Sativa

The worm remedy using Nigella sativa is proven to work. So if you want a sure fire recipe, try this one.

Black Cumin Ointment for Worms and Parasites


  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of black cumin oil

  1. Place the vinegar and the oil in a small pan and bring the liquid to boil.  Remove from the stove to cool slightly.  While still warm, use a pasty brush and  brush the stomach, liver area and behind the liver. 
  2.  Do not wipe off.  Wear a loose fitting nightshirt and go to bed.

The liquid will absorb into your skin.  There will be no residue at all left when you wake up.  Before sleeping eat 7 dates to kill the ascaris which is shown above in the first photo.  Ascaris are large worms and more difficult to kill.

Typical herbs used to kill worms are black walnut, cloves and wormwood.  Black cumin has been used for centuries.  It is not a fast acting program.  There are some programs that will work immediately, but this is a safe, inexpensive way to protect yourself.

Realize that as long as you continue to eat meat and fruits and vegetables, you will have a worm problem.  Avoid eating any fruit with slits in them, such as cherries and grapes.  Wash your fruit good and inspect your fruit well. Do not buy bargain priced vegetables hoping to save money.  Good organic produce is always the best.

Note: You can use ground black seeds if you do not have the oil, but you will need 1 tablespoon of the ground seeds.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month - Faith Healing and Nigella Sativa

I am a big believer in faith healing and have used it many times in the illnesses and cancer that I had.  My belief that Allah would heal me, just may have been the one thing that healed me and Nigella sativa was just a drink in the night.  As we begin with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I want to reflect on some real life stories of people who were healed with faith. I am here to tell you that through faith you will be healed.

Nigella Sativa - The Original Faith Medicine

When Muslims were told 1400 years ago by Prophet Mohammad, ”There is healing in Black Seed for all diseases except death.”Weren't they suppose to go on faith?  I tell people over and over again, when you begin this protocol, you must believe that the miraculous seed will cure you. Isn't faith what makes us believe in Allah, God or even Prophet Mohammad?

So Prophet Mohammad's followers were told to believe in the little black seed and they should take it often to avoid all disease except death.  Imagine the talk? Prophet Mohammad was loved so much that few would doubt his word, but some did I am sure.  When I first started taking Nigella sativa some years ago I went on faith, but not just by taking a few seeds and saying walah!!!  First I pray to Allah and ask him to heal me and then I believe in the messages he send me through prayer, heart or second sense and I change my diet according to his wishes.  So I am not asking you to believe that the cure will work and do nothing else.  I am telling you that you should believe in the power of Nigella and follow a healthy diet and exercise program and most assuredly to thank God or Allah daily and pray very much.

Woman Cures Stage III Cancer with Faith and Black Seed

 A popular story on Natural News tells of a woman who took black seed and honey and garlic.  Nigella Sativa (or black seed, as it is more commonly called) is a well-documented cure for many forms of cancer, including pancreatic cancer. Black seed is used to treat everything from migraines to cancer.

A woman in Yemen, suffering from 3rd stage cancer, sought a natural treatment. She was advised to take black seeds with honey three times a day, in addition to garlic and honey, also taken three times per day.

Her husband faithfully crushed the seeds and mixed them with honey. He also crushed the fresh garlic and mixed it with honey. After three months, her cancer disappeared. The woman has continued to use honey and garlic, even after the disappearance of her disease.

12 Year Old Boy Cured of Brain Cancer

Again we have a story of a mother's faith in healing her son's cancer. She gave him 9 capsules a day of black seed oil.  In just a few months he was cured.  Did faith play a big part in this cure?  The mother had faith in God and the Treatment and the son had faith in his mother's love.

Faith in Other Religions

Faith is the basis of all religions and it has been proven that people who had religious faith during their battles with cancer and other diseases were cured 7 times more than those who did not believe.  People worldwide are running to buy the best black seed oil because they have "faith" in the teachings and well also in the case studies being done.

So through faith they believe that the medicine will cure and they will be saved.  Desire to live is playing a very strong role in society.  A study by Dr. Andrea Phleps and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute delved into the study of faith by near end cancer patients and they found that people with faith did better, strived harder and worked harder to live. 

The Washingoton Post reported, "I am fond of the story that Dr. Larry Dossey tells of an introverted woman who waited last in line to see him following one of his talks. She wanted him to know that 30 years ago she had undergone surgery for colon cancer and was told she had 6 months to live. Dr. Dossey asked her what she did, for she was an obvious survivor. She told him that she did nothing. She just lived with the faith that she was well." 

Grandmother Cures Breast Cancer with Faith

A woman wrote about her grandmother and her faith that she would be healed.  When she was told she had breast cancer, she said, "I ain't got no damn cancer." She turned around and left the doctor's office and never returned.  Was this faith that God would heal her or that the doctor was so dang stupid, he did not know his ass from his ear?  Faith comes in many forms.  Many will tell you that no one dies before their time and so they believe that no matter what they do, they will survive.  Is this insanity or just plain the feeling of invincibility.  Kind of like Superman!!

Eight years ago the woman came down with Leukemia and again with her simple voice she said, "I don't reckon I've got it." To this day she is not cured, but she is still alive and kicking.

Chris Heals Cancer - The Story of A Grandmother's Desire for McDonalds

I love to read Chris's website where he talks about God and his gratitude to be alive.  He tells of taking a grandmother to McDonalds to eat because she was just kicked out of her home and she had children with her.  She had to use a voice box to talk and so he agreed to pay for whatever they wanted. They order more than $38 worth of food, but Chris paid. The grandmother told of being cured of cancer and thus the reason for her voice box and Chris told her too he was cured.  She thanked him for his generosity and he told her woman, “You’re welcome. I want you to know that God has blessed me. That’s why I’m able to do this for you.” His faith in God and returning the favor or paying it forward caused him to have faith that the money would be returned.  He knew he owed God for the gift of life.

He met his wife and told her what happened and they both teared up.  He said, "What can I say, God is so good. He has changed my heart and now I’m a big softy."  

Faith Makes Us Humble and it Makes Us Appreciate

According to the American Cancer Society, "Available scientific evidence does not support claims that faith healing can cure cancer or any other disease. Some scientists suggest that the number of people who attribute their cure to faith healing is lower than the number predicted by calculations based on the historical percentage of spontaneous remissions seen among people with cancer. However, faith healing may promote peace of mind, reduce stress, relieve pain and anxiety, and strengthen the will to live.

What a bunch of bull!  I believe that faith heals and can heal even at late stage cancers.  I believe that God can heal who he pleases, but in some cases we may not like what he decides. I have seen some very good people called home early in life and I often wonder why the good always die first.  I have read of stories where people had a lot of faith with breast cancer and they were at peace, but they died anyway.

Sometimes you have to know that faith healing does not mean "cured."  Faith means to believe that whatever God decides is ok.  


When you are a loved ones are sick, seek the help of the higher power and follow the guidance of experts with the best protocol to cure your cancer or illness.  Have faith that there is a cure and that this is not the worse thing that could have happened to you and then even though you cannot understand why you were brought to this place, you will follow and do as he asks.

There are hundreds of stories of faith healing on the internet and in books.  People who believed with all their hearts that they would survive.  My father believed with all his heart he would live.  He prayed to God that he would do right and change his life around, but he relied on conventional healing.  Even the strongest faith in the world can not cure you if you are using death injected medicines.  I pray that no matter what remedy you try combined with faith, it will never be chemotherapy and radiology.

God be Always with You.
