Celery Is an Herb!

“The Gourmet Herbalist”

Marlenea La Shomb, ND
November-December 2018 • Vol 3, No 101

Celery is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory foods, because it starves unproductive bacteria, yeast, mold, fungus, and viruses that are present in the body and flushes their toxins and debris out of the intestinal tract and liver. Pathogens like these are so often the underlying cause of inflammation—in their absence, your body is much better able to handle whatever life throws your way. At the same time, celery helps good bacteria thrive.

Above is the opening paragraph on celery, Life-Changing Foods, Save Yourself and the Ones You Love with the Hidden Powers of Fruits and Vegetables, a #1 New York Times bestseller by Anthony William. He is known as the Medical Medium, also being called “the next Edgar Cayce.” Here are just a few highlights of what’s inside this book…

The Power of Garlic

“Garlic Is Divine!” —Anthony Bourdain

Crystal Maceira, LMT, MH
November-December 2018 • Vol 3, No 101

The late great Anthony Bourdain once wrote, “Garlic is divine. When handled correctly, few foods can taste so many distinct ways. Please, treat your garlic with respect…” While he was referring to garlic’s culinary uses, we will see here that the same is true of its herbal and medicinal uses.

In the previous issue, we highlighted the power of Lobelia. Garlic is another one of my favorite herbs. Since the holidays are coming up and the cold and flu season is upon us, it’s garlic’s turn to shine. You may already know that garlic is a wonder food, but I’m sure you will learn more about it before this article is through. For example, did you know that China produces some 80% of the world supply of garlic?

Cell-Food Salts

The Secret Keys to Transmutation

Marlenea La Shomb, ND
November-December 2018 • Vol 3, No 101

Every now and again, I read something and I think—my thoughts exactly! That’s how I felt when I read the words of Dr. Wilhelm Schüssler, founder of Biochemic Medicine, regarding the twelve cell-food salt remedies: “The sick might be healed with substances that are natural!” [See my Natural Life article from the previous issue on Facial Diagnosis of Cell Salt Deficiencies, now archived at] This is an introduction to those cell-food salts, which are still almost a secret among those who are seeking better health.

Dr. Schüssler went on to say: “A connective base and bone-earth are central constituents of bone, such as are found in calcium salts. There can be no cartilage without cartilage salts, nor blood without iron salts, nor salines without potassium-chloride (Kali mur) cell-food salts.” He created Biochemic Medicine, from which we now have “biochemistry,” a term formed from “bios,” the Greek word for life, and “chemistry,” which Webster defines as “that branch of science that treats the composition of substances and the changes that they undergo.”

Gingerbread Chia Pudding!

Easy, Raw Dessert for the Holidays

Amanda Cooper
November-December 2018 • Vol 3, No 101

I always get asked if I know any easy, raw desserts that can be good for the holidays. My two-year-old son really likes this recipe for gingerbread chia pudding. It has become a holiday staple for us. It’s really easy and delicious. Changing recipes for the holiday season is all about using the base recipes and then just changing and experimenting with the spices and seasonings! Have fun with it!

*You can experiment with different nut milks. Try Brazilian, pistachio, almond, or cashew… To make your own nut milk, just use 1 C. nuts soaked overnight and blend with 2-½ C. water in a blender, high-speed for 20 seconds. Then squeeze through a nut-milk bag. It’s super-easy!

Honey-Roasted Apples

with Honey-Butter Caramel Sauce

Janice Feuer-Haugen
November-December 2018 • Vol 3, No 101

It often takes a number of tries to get a recipe “right,” meaning I like it a lot and it’s ready to share. Definitely the case with this recipe for Honey-Roasted Apples. I experimented with different ways of cutting the apples, different varieties of apples, different flavorings, and different cooking temperatures. The night I photographed and ate an entire batch of Honey-Roasted Apples for dinner, I knew I had a winner. They were fragrant, complex, flavorful, tender, easy, and oh so delicious. A word of warning—only make Honey-Roasted Apples when there are other people around so you can share them!

Beginning in September, a few friends brought me bags of just-picked apples from their trees. These crisp, fragrant, juicy apples, in unknown varieties, came in colors from yellow to pale green to deep red. When I experimented with roasting them, some split open while others, looking great on the outside, had turned mushy on their inside.

Addressing Chronic Pain

From Suboptimal Biomechanics

Terry Kennedy, MPT
November-December 2018 • Vol 3, No 101

Chronic pain will visit most of us at some point in our lives. It comes and goes, or is it constantly nagging, despite our efforts to deal with it. A trip to your doctor, and maybe to a specialist, may reveal that nothing is seriously wrong—which is good to know. You might be offered an injection to the painful area or a prescription for physical therapy.

Chronic pain could start from a variety of possibilities such as an old injury that may have occurred years or decades in the past. You have long since dismissed it as irrelevant, since the old injury was in one location and the pain you are now experiencing is in another.

Lobelia: “One of the World’s Greatest Herbs”

Use with Caution!

Crystal Maceira, Master Herbalist
September-October 2018 • Vol 3, No 100

There is a controversy to how safe Lobelia is. Of the several beautiful varieties of this plant, Lobelia inflata is the one that has the medicinal values I will talk about today. Other common names for this herb are pukeweed and Indian tobacco. There are good reasons for this, which will be discussed here. This article will also discuss Lobelia itself, why it is considered safe, why others feel it is a poison, and famous herbalists’ experiences with it.

What Lobelia inflata? It is an annual or biennial, meaning it reseeds every year or two. It grows from 6 to 39 inches tall and has stems with tiny little hairs at the bottom, becoming smoother at the top, with light-blue or violet flowers that are asymmetrical and bisexual. Lobelia was named after Mattias de Lobel, a botanist who lived in the 17th century. The stems, leaves, flowers, and seeds are what is used. The main alkaloid is Lobeline, which is in the seed, but its other alkaloids include lobelacrin, lobelianin, and 14 pyridine alkaloids (with a total of 52 alkaloids). It also contains acids, fats and gum.

Cancer’s Trojan Horse

“There is not a tumor on God’s green Earth that cannot be licked with a little baking soda and maple syrup.” —Jim Kelmun

Kenneth Brown, CEO
September-October 2018 • Vol 3, No 100

LLong about February of 2018, I had a large lump in my chest so I went over to the VA hospital in Helena for a biopsy. The surgeon said he would let me know. I then did the maple syrup and baking soda routine described here. After about two weeks, he called and said he wanted to do another biopsy. I told him there’s no need because the lump is gone now. After two more of my friends died of cancer,
I made copies of this newsletter and started asking around, “Do you know anyone who’s got cancer?” The answer was almost always yes, so I’ve been handing out this information since then.

I mentioned it to a fellow named Jay who had stage-4 colon cancer. He went out and got the 100%-pure maple syrup and the aluminum-free baking soda. After about three weeks on it, he went back to the doctor who said, “I don’t know what you’re doing, but keep doing it, because your numbers are way down.” A friend named Terry also had colon cancer. After a while, I was meeting a mutual friend for coffee, who told me, “Terry wants you to know he’s doing fine and says, ‘Thank you, thank you!’”

What’s Your Face Telling You?

A Picture Paints 1,000 Words

Marlenea La Shomb, ND
September-October 2018 • Vol 3, No 100

In life I have found keeping it simple and finding what works best for you are most beneficial when working to move forward through challenging situations, whether mental, emotional, or physical, since they are all tied together with one affecting the other.

Over the years, I have met some people with a very strong sense of smell and taste, disliking pure essential oils. For that very reason, they can also have a dislike for stronger tasting foods, like raw garlic, onions, lemon, ginger, cayenne or turmeric, herbs and herbal remedies (tinctures), teas and have never gotten used to the benefits due to the taste. Adding to that, some cannot swallow tablets or capsules, making me wonder, what can I recommend to these people that they will actually take?
