Charcoal

Dr Atta K. Bonsu

It is my prayer that every individual must have charcoal at home. Do not be lazy; take some time to prepare charcoal and use. If you cannot prepare, then you can send an order for our clinical activated charcoal. (Some of our preparations can be easily posted to you, like clay, charcoal, and other herbs).

There are so many secrets about charcoal that I cannot be negligent to announce to the world; there is no way I can conceal these facts. If I had refused to do this, then millions will die but the Lord has something to ask me, because I know much about these things. Now that diseases are “floating” everywhere, you need charcoal with you always. Everywhere you go take along some charcoal to handle emergency cases.

Charcoal was used as medicine before even the father of medicine Hippocrates was born and crowned as the first doctor. (He lived between 460 to 370 BC). Before Europeans could sail to settle in the New World (America), the Red Indians were using charcoal. Even presently, it is an indigenous medicine in United States, (not only the Red Indians). Charcoal tablets are common in American hospitals and clinics.

A few years back, 37 Military Hospital in Accra- Ghana was using charcoal tablets seriously; and of course, charcoal will save many lives in our health institutions if we revisit its use, than destroying patients livers and kidneys with chemicalized pain-killers. Before the white men reached Africa with their unnatural drugs, Ashantis, Igbos, Yorubas, Zulus and Wollofs already knew charcoal therapy. What then should I say before you start preparing your own charcoal? And above all, scientifically, what have I seen in charcoal that I am “forcing” you to use it?

Properties of Charcoal

Like a serpent was raised in the wilderness when the children of God were dying, those who heeded the advice that God gave through Moses lived without seeing death. So, today, millions of people are dying at their homes, in hospitals and everywhere, but God whose mercy remains firm, and His compassion reigns forever, still directs His loved-ones minds to that same “serpent” in the form of charcoal, lemon, garlic and herbs; those who will regard these things will surely live.

In chemistry, charcoal is simply carbon, or more properly as ultra-carbon. But almost every substance contains carbon. When the starches, protein, fats, resins and many enzymes and chemicals are burned out of wood, it leaves it as carbon. After all these substances and impurities are removed, it becomes carbon—pure vegetable matter. When examined under the microscope, it is seen to be extremely porous, with an appearance of a sponge, which has a cohesive force to absorb substance to make it rigid.

A micrograph of charcoal could give a clear indication to this. Carbon micrograph showing some holes that attract poison and toxins. Certain electrostatic properties may develop in activated charcoal during its preparation, which favour the binding and absorption of poisons.

Charcoal can absorb up to about 300-350 times its own weight of substances, it is absorptive in its action, rather than being like a sponge; which means, it works more or less like a magnet, attracting various substances and objects to it; and holding them tightly on its surface (adsorption). The mechanism and how this wonderful absorption is done and accomplished no one knows for sure—all we know is that the absorptive power of charcoal is capable of drawing and binding all toxins and poisons in the human body. That is the reason why when one is sick and dying, immediately the fellow starts taking charcoal, then life, starts reviving.

Reaction of Charcoal on the Skin, Stomach and the Blood (Micro Dialysis)

Micro dialysis of the body, the stomach and the blood by charcoal either drunk or poulticed could give a clear indication of how powerful charcoal reacts on toxins, poisons and foreign substances in the body. Since charcoal can effectively take up a wide variety of poisons and toxins when mixed together, we would understand and expect it would work very effectively in the stomach and the blood stream to take up poisons and toxins that make man sick when accumulated in the body.

When charcoal is drunk into the stomach, its porous, spongy structure will start absorbing, and even in the intestinal wall it will diffuse into the blood capillaries and get rid of toxins and poisons occupied in the blood stream.

Some may think, it is less evident, however, that charcoal could remove or extract toxins and poisons, especially drug toxins from the blood after it had taken much poisons in the gastrointestinal tract. But some experiments have shown that, activated charcoal, not only takes toxins and poisons in the stomach and the intestines, but can even attract and absorb poisons from the blood back into the gastrointestinal tract where charcoal takes them up and destroy them. This process of the wonder-work of charcoal is known in natural science as gastrointestinal dialysis. All these prove how great charcoal can be in cleansing of human body!

On the surface of the skin, after a poultice (charcoal made in the form of paste) is applied on the skin, it enters the tiny, tiny pores on the skin and get direct contact with the blood stream in the form of capillaries, these capillaries will carry charcoal with its absorptive elements to bind all poisons around the area and inactivates them. That is the reason why when one is suffering from pains, swellings, boils, carbuncles and all skin eruptions, immediately the person applies charcoal poultice, they disappear.

Dosage and How to Administer Charcoal

How to administer and the required dosages of charcoal is very important if the victim wants to observe a good response. Charcoal is not food but an absorptive medicine. It is a natural medicine—it has no side effects. However, it could be harmful if one does not apply or take it properly. Although we have not seen any problem with long-term use, as with all treatment, yet we recommend that they be taken only as needed in every condition, especially in acute cases.

It is not proper to take charcoal for a long time without giving a break; it is not food but medicine. Since it is an absorptive substance, it has ability to absorb some life-nutrients along with toxins and poisons from the body. That is to say, while charcoal is absorbing and throwing away “waste”, some valuable nutrients can also be extracted and be thrown away together with the waste. These are some of the reasons why it is not advisable to take charcoal internally for a long period without a break.

But if there is a persisted, serious long-term problem, one can take it continuously for some time to observe changes before skipping. Some critical conditions will require daily in-take of charcoal, there are certain cases, charcoal cannot be left out, some must die to save others. Even though it will absorb toxins together with some valuable nutrients, yet some must die in order to save many.

Occasionally, someone may feel like taking charcoal to cleanse the body. I often do this especially when I travel to unhygienic environments. You can chose one week in a month and drink charcoal, several doses with water into an empty stomach, and drink lots of water to absorb and wash and throw all “waste” from the body. After this is done the individual feels clean and healthy. This occasional “washing” of the body by charcoal is often considered as prophylaxis or problem-preventer.

Materials for Making Charcoal

I have advised in this way that, it is not good and safe to pick charcoal anyhow and use as medicine. Even though most charcoal we see can be used, it is always better and safer to know the type of wood or material you are using. And remember, there are few plants that are poisonous too.

In my country, Ghana, charcoal is one of the commonest items that one can easily get. It is the cheapest among almost all commodities. You will see a big truck loading charcoal in bags, it costs nothing—even one bucket of corn will cost more than a bag of charcoal. But activated charcoal in the health shops and clinics are somehow expensive because they are specially made and prepared medicines. Our clinical charcoal in box will cost more than half bag of cooking-charcoal. That means charcoal in our clinics are more valuable than any charcoal you can have ordinarily.

A great number of items can be used in making charcoal. Wood from various trees is the most common material for making charcoal. Some use bones, but I may prefer plant-wood charcoal to bones of animals. Most simple items like corncobs, coconut shells, and palm sachets are also used for making charcoal. Best woods may include bonnet, eucalyptus, oak, “wawa”, “Odum”, mahogany, sapele, acacia, and many others. It is not the matter of getting all these items and combining them to make charcoal: No, only one can be chosen to make charcoal.

But some plants or items can wonderfully work on specific treatments. For instance, traditionally, it was known among old Akan fathers that corn-cob-charcoal with cold water drunk at once will calm a troubled heart. All charcoal can do this, but it looks as if the old people tried the corncobs and it was excellent for them. Coconut shells too work wonderfully, but the best wood I have always preferred and loved to use is eucalyptus and common mango. On special preparations to treat serious cases, collective of different woods, combined could make a trick. Our activated, clinical charcoals are mostly from combined woods (You can order for it by filling out contact form).

Burning of charcoal

Locally one can prepare a small quantity of charcoal so easily for home use. You need only small for your family, so you can do this by simply burning the wood and quenching the fire with water to get the charcoal. Do not allow it to burn into ash. You can dry before grinding into powder. You may need a knife to scrape the charcoal on woods that are not well burnt.

For commercial purposes, the ultimate in making your charcoal is very simple. You can burn the wood out door; when the wood is burning brightly, it should be covered with a large piece of tin with dirt or clay piles over the outside of the tin to retain air. This burns at the same time quenching the fire without turning into ashes. The soft parts of wood are burned out first and the hard parts remain—making a good grade of charcoal.

How to Use Charcoal

For Drink: Mix about one teaspoon of charcoal powder with ½ glasses of water and drink. The dose will also depend on what you are treating; for example, one heaped teaspoon of charcoal with little water say 1/3 glass stops diarrhoea, dy.

For Poultice: Mix pulverized or powdered charcoal with lime or lemon juice or ordinary water to make a paste or dough (poultice) and apply on swellings, pains, boils and others.

Slurry: In this way, charcoal powder is soaked in water for some days. Immediately you mix (soak) with water shake or stir it, then let it steep and allow all the charcoal to settle at base of the container leaving the water suspended on top. Collect the water on top without stirring or shaking the container, sift or filter it nicely with non-porous material and keep it for use.

It treats cancer, hypertension, heart problem, diabetes and others, but it is used with others herbs. It can also be used as drinking water for some time when treating various diseases. It is very good for ladies with whites (leucorrhoea).

Vegetarianism

Dr Atta K. Bonsu

Go and ask elephant “why he is a vegetarian, he will tell you so many secrets that you have never dreamt of knowing. But for Mr. Horse, the answer will be so fascinating, climb at my back and let me ran with you. The big elephant can conquer almost everything in the forest but he lives on mushrooms and plants. The horse can perform hard and wonderful work while subsisting wholly on a vegetarian diet.

That old notion that meat is essential to strength and it is the best source of protein is becoming the thing of the past. Do not advise people, especially patients and pregnant women to eat more meat to acquire protein—this is erroneous and ruinous—you will rather kill them with such teachings. Tell them to emulate the dietary course of elephants, horses and others for strength and long life.

Vegetarianism refers to a dietary in which a person does not eat flesh of dead animals, like meat, fish or fowl. While fish or fowl is less harmful than meat, yet the one who calls himself a vegetarian stays away from all these.

Categorically, there are different types of vegetarians. The term ‘vegetarian’ can refer to alacto-ovo vegetarian, who is a person who does not eat the three types of flesh (meat, fish and fowls) but does eat plant foods, dairy products (milk, butter, cheese), and eggs. Even here one can still be referred to as a lacto vegetarian, when he eats plant food and only diary product without eating eggs. In the same manner one can be an ovo-vegetarian, when he also eats plant food and eggs without necessarily eating diary products.

A ‘vegetarian’ can also refer to a vegan that is a person who does not eat meat, fish, fowl diary products (milk, butter, cheese), or eggs, but does not eat only plant food (vegetables, fruits, cereals/grains and nuts). This is an advanced dietary programme that is a real vegetarian status, one who lives on only plant source food, without any elements of animal, flesh products.

Consciously, these strict vegetarians need to combine their foods properly in other to secure all the major elements and nutrients that the body organs need to survive. Especially, all the 23 amino-acids that comprise of complete protein and other essential vitamins and minerals. It is possible to live like this. After all, the early men lived several hundred years without eating flesh of dead animals. This patriarch, including Adam, Seth, Methuselah or Noah lived almost a thousand years subsisting on fresh fruits, vegetables, grains/cereals and nuts. And that was the Creator’s original plan. (Read Genesis 1:29)

Among these strict (vegan) vegetarians are yet more strict ones like fruitarians (Raw vegetarians). In this type of vegetarianism, they eat only raw (uncook) foods. They eat raw, fresh vegetables and fruits; grains in raw, tender state. They also love sprouting grains before eating them in salads and in other recipes. It is also possible for one to live like this, but it demands a lot of self denial, care and diligence.

People who live like this are very healthy, full of wisdom and strength. They eat less and acquire much nutrient and strength. This notwithstanding, we are advised to do less cooking and eat plenty of raw foods. About sixty percent of your food must be eaten raw. Too much cooking has been the cause of many invalids and untimely deaths. Eat plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables and nuts.

Steps to a Sucessful “Vegetarian”

I once lived with a very good friend of mine, who ate everything that passes across his eyes. For him there was nothing like clean or unclean animal, he ate everything; including pork, dog meat and every flesh that are consumed by his contemporary generation.

Consequently, in his early 40s, he started developing high blood pressure due to much accumulation of cholesterol in the blood stream as a result of lavish consumption of meat. I had opportunity to advise him this time to desist from fresh meats, though I had earlier given several warnings. This time, for fear of death, he decided to heed my advices. He decided to make changes but step by step.

Interesting, he started it by desisting from all unclean meats that are pronounced unwholesome in the Bible. So he no longer ate pork and others, but clean fowls and meats.

In his second step, he decided to eat only roasted meats and fowls and fish. And that was a good—to eat meat without blood, fat and cholesterol (Leviticus 3:17). This Bible direction was good for him to avoid diseases from diseased animals. And blood cholesterol level too was reduced.

Thirdly, he made up his mind to abstain from all meats and fowls but this time fish was eaten alone. He told me and I encouraged him, so he became piscevorous (people who live only on fish and plants food). He lather on became a lacto-ovo vegetarian, and today he is a strict vegetarian (vegan), and he is one of the healthiest Africans Heaven can boast of. The hypertension disappeared and at 70 years he looks like 40 years old.

Vegetarians Avoid Deadly Diseases

On 2nd July, 2009, I took my “Daily Graphic” (Newspaper Ghanaian) and turned to page 2 and read a fascinated but worthy article on ‘Vegetarianism’. This prompted me to write this article. I wished every Ghanaian had the privilege I had to read how vegetarian oriented diets keep people from contracting cancer.

Research and studies have proven that ‘vegetarians) avoid most of the killer diseases that trouble people of this generation. Diseases such as cancer, hypertension, heart attacks, diabetes, arthritis and rheumatism, kidney and liver afflictions are rare in vegetarian communities. Even some common diseases like constipation and piles, ladies and fibroid, tuberculosis, typhoid and hepatitis are unpopular among vegetarians.

Alcoholic Natural Medicines

Dr Atta K. Bonsu

Every medicine, be it herbal or synthetic or otherwise, are all products from nature. All modern, synthetic drugs common in drug stores and pharmaceutical shops are extracts from natural elements. In the same manner traditional, herbal medicines also come from nature.

Now, the only way that can separate medicines to either synthetic or natural may only be determined by the methods being used to prepare such products. As we talk about the dangers of drugs, it does not mean that every medicine in the drug store or pharmacy could be bad; in the same manners as we promote natural medicine, it does not also mean that every concoction a herbalist gives could be genuine – we need to analyze things properly.

Most of our pharmaceutical drugs are just nutrients from plants without high, hard chemicals added; some are just food supplements and even tonics. But the problem we face today is the influx of high chemical substances; fake, adulterated and substandard drugs also circulating alongside with genuine medicines or drugs. So you need much prayer and care if you are going to purchase drugs. Lest you use money to buy poisonous substances in the idea of buying drugs or medicines.

Indeed, this calls for wisdom and thorough-analysis to chose herbal line: which is safer than the orthodox drugs line. When I advise that we should use herbs, it does not mean that any concoction that a herbalist gives could be genuine. Remember money-minded and inexperienced, unqualified practitioners are all over.

Typical examples are those who use chemical preservatives in preserving herbal preparations. Some do not even mind to make decoction of herbs, bottle them and add chloroform as a preservative. Some of the concentrated so-called alcoholic bitters could be harmful at times. Especially, when these alcoholic bitters are continuously used for a considerable long period, the adverse effects are many times dreadful.

Old, strong tinctures and bitters like “Swedish bitters” was discovered and used for long. It has really helped many, bringing relief to serious diseased pains. But it was prescribed and used on acute cases for a short period of time; and enough dilution if it were taken for chronic, long standing cases. But today, the bitters is all over to an extent that one finds it difficult to lay hands on genuine ones – even though direction was given to make personal preparations.

That is the spirit of Africans; people will not discover, but immediately a product has gained popularly, and selling, then people produce adulterated ones. So Swedish bitters are all over, but it could be dangerous if not wisely used on patients, because they are mostly prepared with high alcoholic substances. Therefore, its internal use requires much discretion and care.

Safe Preparation of Herbs

We have studied that herbs have no side effects. It is not harmful to use anything that comes from nature directly. But, if it is wrongly used, then it may produce some wrong effects. Before man was created, herbs had been already created, and every organ in the human body has their respective herbs that treat them, in case there are some damages.

There are plants for the eyes, plants for the brain and its numerous nerves; others for the mouth, throat, nose and ears. Those for the heart, the arteries, the sexual organs (both male and female); plants for the locomotive system (movements), and many others that we cannot mention.

All these plants can be used either as vegetables in meals or used as medicines. That is to say, if man would select, combine and prepare these vegetables in simplest manner as possible and used, he may not easily get sick and die unnaturally. So, when you see somebody complaining of the eyes, without any congenial cause like accidents, it means his eyes starve nutrients (food) they require to live on.

The most important issue, which may need your interest, is when sickness finally comes; you need to exercise the brain ever than before, however, with unceasing prayers to know the cause, and the steps to take. When it becomes inevitably necessary for you to take in some herbs to regain what the body has lost, then you may need to advance the mind to use but only safe and effective herbal medicines, which are prepared in the natural and simplest manner as possible. But not moving haphazardly to use dangerous herbal concoctions, which you do not even know the source and components.

In a rational way, when sickness comes; you can even stay without bothering much about taking medicines (modern or herbal). You stay and eat properly; drink good water, do exercises and breathe in pure air and rest when needful. You realize that, the recuperative forces will extract the useful forces left in you, especially from the immune response, to fight the disease, without you taking a drug or medicine. That is how the Creator created all animals including man.

These recuperative forces in collaboration with the working of the immune system, are what most Africans lack, due to perverse eating, drinking and harmful living, which generally mar the physical and mental powers of man. And, honestly, this is the principal cause of Africans dying of weak immune diseases like HIV/AIDS – than any group of people. People do not eat properly with biology, we drink anything that comes across our eyes, including sugary and alcoholic drinks, and we are morally weak in indulging in illicit sexual games and all sensual, licentious practices, so, that when we are attacked by the disease, there is nothing to safe us.

As I have earlier advised, if these factors are not properly studied, envisaged into our individual’s health programmes, you can be tricked, sometimes, to use certain dangerous, harmful, natural medicines in the idea of taking natural, safe things from God. There are so many ways of practicing a healing act, but not all of the ways are safe, and thus sanctioned by the Creator to be used.

We are bound to pray for a “spirit of discernment and temperance”. You need to be ever temperate in all that you do, even than before, because we are in the most dangerous times. We are living now in a world full of tricks. Be careful of any advices that men give. This dispensation love money more than human beings, the neighbour. Many cheat and rob in the name of God and all that God has created.

In fact, I thank God that I am a Christian or a worshipper and servant of Him. Christianity and God’s religion have opened my eyes to an extent that, even though I am small and young, yet it is not easy to be tricked and fooled. Do not waste time on things that do not portray the beauty of God’s providences. Pray for that “spirit of discernment”, you may receive it.

Many have made religion a “curse” whereas God is calling for many. We all want to go to Heaven, no one wants to die in hell, but religion, especially Christianity has become a show, fashion and money display. Many peasant Africans do not want to hear the word “herbalist” or anything “herbal”, because most of the places of practice have become abysses of “spiritualism and spiritism”, where wonderful stories and lies are told and dangerous concoction are prepared and given.

So, what God has blessed and the true medical line of work has been profaned and blasphemed by these sorcerers. “But by their words and fruits you may know them”. You go to a pastor or a traditionalists then he tells you that “your mother is the cause of your problem”, excuse him; such places God is not there, he wants to rob you of your monies, he wants you to be cursed, after allowing you to start cursing your mother. You go to where you may be advised to drink daily your urine as medicine, excuse the person, it is not a rational remedy. You go to an herbalist, all his medicines are alcohol, alcohol; he wants to ruin your health, run away from him. I am teaching you wisdom, if you have ears: listen!

Methods Of Preparing Natural Medicines

In fact, the season you gather herbs has a great influence on the medicine. The drying, the packaging and storage, and the methods of preparation; all these can determine the potency and the efficacy of the medicines. The following are general directions and main ways to preparing herbs.

Infusion: By far, this is the best way of preparing herbs to obtain the fullness of their properties. Soaking the medicine in either cold or hot (boiling) water as tea to infuse or extract its potency. Most infused herbs are either powdered or in granule forms.

African Clay Pot

African Clay Pot

Decoction: This method was very common amongst our ancestors. Just pour water over herbs in pots (clay pot the best), and boil for some time depending on the nature of herb used. Leaves do not require long boiling (even not boiling but to simmer). But tree barks and roots chopped into cubes may be simmered (slow boiling) for long, depending on their respective hardness.

Tinctures and Extracts: These are very high concentrated form of herbal concoctions. These can be done either by infusion or decoction. Just to make the concentration high in order to use in small quantities, for people who are very diseased and weak and those who find it difficult to take herbs, especially bitter ones. (But modern herbalists have changed these tinctures and extracts into alcohol and “bitters” as it is so-called). An extract is about six to ten times concentrated than tinctures.

There are other methods such as poultices: which is by making an herb in a paste (mud) form to apply topically on the skin to work on diseases. There are herbal salves, liniment and balms; for external cases like wounds, sores, sprains, fractures and painful diseased joints, as massages. There are syrups too, that are mostly prepared with sweets like molasses and honey to treat cough, asthma and others.

However, for all these methods, it is only liniments which the olden people used alcohol, and modern practitioners use as well. And as we are all aware, liniments are mostly used on the external part of the body, especially in massages. But the way modern herbalists use alcohol in most herbal preparations makes one scared of their uses.

I fear those alcoholic herbal concoctions; and I do not see them as part of nature we are advocating for the people. Herbal preparations should be prepared fresh everyday, and drink as tea to heal diseases gradually, but not drinking of strong alcoholic beverages. May God bless us for our proper understanding.

Nutritional Value of Garlic

Dr Atta K. Bonsu

Selenium, a trace mineral found in garlic, has made it a great anticoagulant, that prevents the body from lumps, masses, tumours, abscesses, fibroids, benign and malignant growths; skin rashes, boils and cancerous cells. That is, garlic is capable of melting the blood, and prevents blood from coagulating, if it is properly and simply prepared and used.

That alliin in garlic has made it a real deal. Some do not want to hear the name at all because of the offensive odour it gives. But such make mistakes. Is it alliin that makes this offensive odour? Alliin by itself will not smell, but the enzymes allinase found in it. When mashed, it will stimulate and liberate; transforms first into allicin, which is that active principle that gives the offensive garlic smell.

Nonetheless, look at what The Creator would do; a great medicinal force and power are embedded in this offensive part of garlic, when you reject or disperse it, you lose vital immune defences. But if you eat it, you gain back your health by improving the body’s immunity. Some want to eat and enjoy garlic, but they still want to remove the allicin that gives that offensive odour. By so doing, the potency is reduced, unless one can do so at the same time maintaining the vitalities – which is impossible.

You need to watch little, little things in life. They can destroy you at the same time, build and restore your life. There are some medicinal powers that the Creator did not put them in big food items such as corn, rice, plantain or yams, but He placed them in garlic, lemon, orange, grapes and others. When you neglect them you reject good and sound health.

Obviously, one can eat several bags of rice or gari without receiving any minute quantity of selenium, unless he eats garlic, because the Creator did not put it in those big food items.

Properties of Garlic

I love mentioning selenium first, whenever I am talking about properties that garlic possesses. Why? Selenium is a trace mineral that is not easily received from many food items, but it does wonders. It can prevent one from rashes, boils, lumps, tumours, fibroids and cancer cells: because of its anticoagulant properties?

It is said to be a trace mineral, for the fact that unlike minerals like calcium, phosphorus, and potassium, selenium cannot be got in big quantities.

Sulphur, in garlic makes your hair and skin shine and bright; but calcium and potassium found in it, make your bones, tendons, nerves and teeth strong, to prevent diseases such as arthritis, rheumatism and osteoporosis; nervous disorders and tooth decay.

As I have earlier mentioned, certain amino acids derivative, alliin in garlic, by the help of allinase is converted into allicin that gives that offensive odour. Allicin has great antibiotic and antiseptic effects; which makes people who eat garlic to be less prone to venereal diseases such as syphilis, gonorrhoea, staphylococcus aurens infections, chlamydia, candidiasis and leucorrhoea (whites), and even the most dreadful HIV/AIDS.

Garlic

Garlic

According to sources garlic has a high effect on the immune system, and could easily prevent the immune diseases. All these announcements are going on but some take it light – for they believe in sophisticated world and its fascinated technology. There are more vitamins that are found in garlic – vitamins A, B1, B2, C and other B-groups are found abundantly in garlic – it is life.

Diseases Treated With Garlic

That my small book “Power of Garlic” is doing wonders in Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, South Africa and other places that it has reached. Various reports from readers and enthusiastic correspondents show that the Lord’s seal and stamp are on the messages that it carries, and they are doing wonders and marvellous work. This means, our God has the ultimate power to heal many from diseases, sorrow and suffering through simple, simple things.

If your eyes are paining, itching and dimming, you cannot see properly, it means you are not feeding properly. These are signs that your eyes are staving; you eat food but the eyes do not get their share; they are dying of hunger. You need not chase for drugs or see any eyes specialists, look for garlic, carrots, oranges, banana and soya beans, your dimmed eyes will see clearly – the pains and itches will cease. (Do not joke with carrots and garlic if you want to maintain your eyesight).

For arthritis, rheumatism and tooth decay, start eating garlic, and add honey to lemon juice mixed with water and drink as your wine, it will stop the diseases. If your hair  are falling and breaking, eat more garlic, they will be strengthened; and can stop and reverse balding. The same mineral has made it a useful element for the skin, by smoothening it. You eat some to strengthen the blood and put some garlic oil in cream for use as your lotion. Some just put some peeled cloves without mashing in their creams, and it works.

In hypotension (low blood pressure) and the opposite hypertension (high blood pressure), garlic is your greatest choice; consume it freely. Garlic produces a decrease in blood pressure, both maximum and minimum. It has vasodilating effects on the blood stream. That is to say, garlic, when eaten will expand or dilate the blood vessels to clear the arteries from high accumulation of cholesterol, and helps in easy flow of blood, without any difficulties.

Not only pressure of the blood, but all the cardiovascular diseases, such as arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), stroke, heart attacks and heart palpitations and serious heart beats.

Somebody took my book and read about diabetes. According to his own testimony, he used dandelion root tea with little pure honey and lemon juice, as his daily tea, after he had drunk one teaspoon of charcoal mixed with ½ glass of water, as the instruction goes. Then he oriented his mind in eating seriously of garlic, in foods, salads and every vegetable stew or soups he ate. Within a very short time, the diabetes was over – he no longer takes those palliative drugs.

All these testimonies sometimes I cannot conceal my love for writing them to you, not boasting or giving records of myself, but just for you to know what simple, simple things around us can do, and to the glory of the Maker. Many a time, we hear that “diabetes has no medicine” who told you? It is only the belief of orthodox practitioners. No old natural practitioner ever wrote or made such a statement. If God comes in, there is a cure, not for only diabetes but for many diseases denounced incurable.

There are many who no longer live on artificially prepared insulin tablets and injections; they have switched to natural, simple items, and they are seeing great changes. Oftentimes, such changes cannot be determined by lab results, but through physical strength and general body countenance. Many take these palliative drugs for only laboratory tests to prove them better when they are internally sick and suffering. So a wise patient will not only use machine test to determined progress in health, but precisely the internal strength and physical health.

In dogbite and snakebite or any venomous poisons and serious viral or fungal infection; skin diseases and rashes, are all treated with garlic. Especially, when eaten raw into the blood stream.

One of the great enemies of cancer is garlic. The selenium will not only prevent cancer but serious lumps that grow in ladies breast and tumours, fibroids, benign and malignant growths.

Fibroid has become a “queen” in Africa nowadays. The rate at which the growth is increasing in Africa makes one scared, and only God knows the cause of all these. Some ladies are eating, drinking and enjoying life but they are unknowingly nursing fibroids. Until they are married or a serious gynaecological problem arises, before ultrasound will expose that she is nursing a “fake baby” (fibroid).
Many African ladies consume lavishly of high fatty foods like red meats, fats, pork, fresh fishes and all devastated meats; yet they do not advance their minds to take cleansing items such as garlic, lemon, honey, fruits and cleansing herbs, so that when these growths begin to grow there is no power in the immune system to reverse them.

Garlic and HIV/AIDS

Reports reaching us indicate that, some HIV/AIDS patients were gathered and placed on strict vegetarian diet; including fresh vegetables and fruits, cereals, legumes and high quantity of raw garlic without meat. About some few weeks’ time, most of them were tested negative, and their countenances and the life in them had greatly improved.

Recently, some victims from Cameroon here who keenly followed all the four articles I presented on HIV/AIDS in THE POST Newspaper have shown tremendous responses to the advices.

Best Way Of Using Garlic

The selection of foods, their combination and preparation is one of the special gifts that every person should acquire. Many use garlic and the rest of vegetables, but they do not receive the nutrients and the blessings because of over washing and overcooking that often kill most of the life-nutrients in food.

Hard cereals or grains like corn, rice, wheat, millet, sorghum and beans and peas need thorough cooking on fire, to regain their grape sugar (lost through drying). Tubers like yam, cassava, potatoes, cocoyam and others are also to be cooked well on fire. But vegetables such as onions, garlic, tomatoes, carrots, cabbage and all leafy vegetables can be eaten raw in salads or half cooked. Half and half cooked vegetables are recommended.

Garlic should not be chewed raw in the mouth, especially for beginners, it can cause some throat irritations, because of its pungent power. If you want to chew, you need to lubricate the throat with either honey or olive oil. Do not overeat it, over-eating of garlic can cause anemia and some complications, as common sense will easily tell. But it is increased as the individual continues eating. One can eat it raw after the throat has coped with it.

The best way is to add it to stew or soup, but do not overcook it. Even the vapour alone after removing from the fire can make it tender for eating. That is, adding it after the stew or soup is done is the best. Raw in salads along with other vegetables too is very nutritious and less irritative. With raw tomatoes and pasley help in reducing the offensive odour. After eating garlic, putting a slice of tomato in your mouth like toffee, reduces the offensive odour. Eat garlic it is life!

Diet and Moral Power

Dr Atta K. Bonsu

You have lived a liberal contented life; you share aspirations with people and love your neighbour as yourself: you can live a self-denial life and gain much self control; you may live a life full of sobriety and circumspection, no jealousy, no envies, hatred, greed and any sign of anger; all your life demonstrates true unselfishness: you gain more moral power; no time for cheating, stealing and robbery; no room for uncleanliness, sensuality and mental depreciation: life full of courtesy and kindness, polite, noble, humble and gentle: which elevates the intellects and places the individual at a high accepted standard to be used by the Supreme Beings: but all these endowments are not only inherited—they are mostly achieved by the diet we eat.

You cannot be gentle, you can never be kind and demonstrate any love to your fellow men and God, unless you start learning how to select, combine and prepare good food. You are disorganized, because you do not programme and organize your food properly. You can only be good, perhaps you were imbued, or by a special gift of the grace; but if proper food plan was included, you would have developed and advanced the more.

Strife, vice, enmity, conflicts, wars, stealing, robbery and all sorts of crime are common everywhere in human society, and wrong diets and foods are greatly responsible. Many eat wonderful foods and devastated creatures as meat, so enviness, jealousy and selfishness has controlled the minds of many – to an extent that many develop hypertension out of jealousy and enviness, due to poor feeding.

Imporished foods, combined with artificial sweets and high starches, block and clog the bowels, constipate the tummy and benumb the brain cells and nerves, to cause serious irritations: Getting easily annoyed because of the blocked tummy with the clogged mind.

The youths cannot control their perverse appetite and passions, due to lavish consumption of meat. It is not easy for any individual who loves eating much meat to control the sexual passion, it is difficult. There are certain propensities in animals that tend to animalize the body, stimulate the impulses, and arouse the sexual passions.

Alcoholic drinks and artificial sugary drinks and too much eating of meat always stimulate the nerves, excite the impulses and arouse the sexual passion and appetite. It is not easy to arrest or calm the sexual lust and desire. When you force to stop or refrain the person from sexual intercourse, it is just like placing a bone in front of a dog, and yet deprived of eating it.

Diet and Immune Power

The description given of the fall of man, as recorded in Genesis Chapter Three, tells us that from the start the perversion of man’s appetite was the most powerful weapon satan used against him. And more than 6,000 years nothing has changed in the nature of welfare. To use foods, converted to poison, to dull our brain and kill us is the object.

It is our food, our drinks, our chemical drugs with our artificial environments, they are the things that are weakening our immune power – and these same things can build it if nature could be allowed to work. So I would not be negligent to tell you all these, so that you can reprogramme your plans well. There is no life in condoms, drugs and vaccines, but only in principles of living – which is an individual personal work.

Many Africans are waiting for whites to come to Africa to solve HIV/AIDS pandemic, but God will never listen to such prayers. Why? We have scientists and medicines on African soil; we can make use of them. The work has already started. Today, many who are serious on this teaching are rebuilding and reviving their immune power with garlic, lemon, honey, corn silk, dandelion, aloe vera, nettles, gotu cola, ginseng and others: They are already doing wonders.

Proper Diet
Remember Your Grandmother’s Diet

This is one line of education that may need your interest and contemplation, and perhaps your investigation; that is the proper way to select foods, combine and prepare them.

Interestingly, knowledge like this, is not only acquired formally in institutions, but it is only grasped by a strong will power and determination and understanding, that only God gives. Comparatively, if we look at the tables of “high learners today and consider that of our ancestors without formal education, then we could see the difference.

Our foregone fathers, without our books and science ate and lived with their minds, and lived longer without diseases, but we living today boast of degrees, ranks and science, even as we do not know the proper food to place on the table for ourselves and our children. We need mercy and grace:

Considerably, many do not even know that “we are what we eat and drink”. People like this do not bother much to consider the biological values of what they take into the system. Whatever they lay their hands on, it enters the mouth and digests and diffuses into the blood. Nevertheless, if your food for today is banana, your blood is exactly banana; if you eat chocolate do not expect garlic in your blood, you have never eaten it. If the whole year you have never eaten plantain but gari, you are building on gari but never make mistakes to expect nutrients of plantain in your blood. It is simply like that – and understand it.

I have already told you that “the fight against HIV/AIDS is an individual work; a work that cannot be done by proxy” – one cannot do for the other. And the basic fact is on how to revive a strong immune defence to fight against the viruses that are already created by artificialism.

You have science and you know science; you have invented chemicals; you have adulterated all your foods and drinks; you have become an expect of self-destruction, you linger your hands on anything that destroys; your great-grandmother had no access to your science and technology, but she ate with her mind, lived a comfortable life, and died a natural timely death, at the time that she could climb cottage mountains. But look at you! Go back to her for wisdom you may live!!

My grandmother refused to eat or drink in fridge. She refused several times to take sugar and untoasted meats. She refused to eat after 6pm. She did not eat at the same time drinking plenty of water or sweet drinks. She did not attend our University of Legon, but who taught her these natural sciences? There were things accurately vouched for all mankind!

I have ever enjoyed eating “fufu corn” and “gyamangyama” whenever I am in Cameroon; but the type, which was prepared for me by a peasant, country aged-woman, during my visit to Mbingo-Ndu, in the North West Province cannot easily be wiped from my mind. The old-lady with the olden experience prepared something very simple, excellent but delicious and palatable. Indeed, it was the day I remembered the old paths that Africans have lost (Read Jeremiah 6:16).

The old lady ground the corn without sifting it; prepared with the peel, the ear and the germ, to maintain the roughage, bulk or fibre of the food. She allowed the fufu to done well, until there was a change of odour, as all hard grains foods require, on fire. The “gyamangyama” (as Cameroonians call huckle-berry leaves) were thoroughly washed but not pressed hard to infuse out the nutrients in the green chlorophyll of the leaves (as many Cameroonians wash leaves to throw off the essentials). The oil, the spice and salt were very moderate. Until now I cannot guess weather she even added salt; if there was, it was very sparing.

Sensing that I do not eat meat, she chopped carrots into cubes and rolled agushi into balls and steamed with the whole vegetables. It was like liver or meat. In fact the whole meal looked natural, but appetizing, delicious and nutritious. I wish you had such an experience.

A few years back, not even quiet long, about three decades ago, Africans were eating, drinking and dressing naturally and modestly. Crime and corruptions were very low. Young African men and women were staying maturely without any immoral, sensual lives; but today it is not the same – our diet and artificial drinks are greatly responsible.

There is no way we can stop HIV/AIDS without tackling our perverse eating habits, let alone to talk about corruption, our tables will tell you how disorganized and corrupted we are on our office files.

The father of modern medicine said something full of wisdom and understanding, “May your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food”. (He lived between 606 and 460 BC: He was a naturalist: Hippocrates).
