Stevia Salve: a psoriasis remedy made in your kitchen
BANGALORE, INDIA---Researchers at St. John’s College of Pharmacy recently sent me details of a wound-healing preparation they tested. They wanted to see if it was a viable alternative to the povidone-iodine ointment commonly used in this country. (Povidone-iodine is commonly sold as Betadine and used to prepare a patient’s skin prior to surgery and for cleaning minor wounds.) In India, they made a wound ointment from stevia extract and soft white paraffin.
Stevia extract has a long history of traditional uses in South America, where it is typically grown. However, the Asian markets consume over 85 percent of the global supply of stevia. In this country, we typically use it as a natural sweetener, but in Brazil and Paraguay, it has been used topically to enhance healing and reduce scarring of cuts, burns, wounds, acne, dermatitis, seborrhea, and even psoriasis.

Fructose has been implicated in numerous inflammatory disease processes including eczema, psoriasis, arthritis, gout, ADHD, Alzheimer's, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease, and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, thyroiditis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and insulin-dependent diabetes.
Fructose is absorbed differently from glucose in the intestinal tract.
Glucose stimulates the release of insulin from the pancreas. Fructose doesn't. Instead of insulin, cells use glut-5 transporter to move fructose into cells. Most cells only have very limited amounts of this transporter, so it's primarily cleared by the liver, where it's easily transformed either into fat or components that eventually increase blood lipids like triglycerides.
And, fructose has a toxicity factor beyond its caloric equivalent.

Of all the nutrients we take in to keep our well, keep ourselves sharp, and live long, the two most important nutrients are air and water.
I have been concentrating on water, because I have no idea what one could do with the air itself. I know there is less and less oxygen percentage wise in the air we breathe, and I know that there are impurities in the air. I also know that air is a carrier of nourishing thought or destructive thought, but I haven't been able to crack the puzzle how I can influence it.
So I am dealing with water. After all 70% of our body is water, and if there is something wrong with our water, the water we drink, the water we bathe in, then we'll be less than we could be.
Dumber, sluggish, pimply, and maybe even sick. Our hair will lack shine, our eyes will lack a spark, and our mood will be downcast.

A month or two ago I gave to one of my massage clients a bottle of Heaven on Earth.
You know that the Heaven on Earth is an energy bundle. The 40 individual energies are the 40 negative feelings a human being can have, from anxiety to wrongful pride: all of them are in those 40.
The Heaven on Earth energies are infused in an aqueous (water based) solution and you take it in your drinking water, minimum 4 times a day, preferable throughout the day.
When a negative feeling arises, which is inevitable, the energy in the infusion (and now in your body) meets it and the two energies battle it out. Literally. They are matching energies, and depending on the strength of the feeling, it wins or the Remedy wins.
