FOUR THIEVES – more

POST #43
I’m doing the “Master Cleanse” or “Lemonade Diet” for the next couple of weeks.   What made me decide to do it was the itching.  I mean, I get this “morning itch” where I can scratch myself raw.  Sometimes, it would show up at other times.   The doctors don’t have an explanation (We all finally figured out that it WAS NOT bedbugs) .  I quit going to yoga class because I couldn’t control the scratching, and I felt I was distracting people. I took to telling people that I had a blood disorder.  Suddenly (DUH!), I decided to do a Master Cleanse, because that always clears up everything that I have (when I will do it).  I figure it is a good thing to do, no matter what. Like, if I am dying of some weird disease, we will be able to identify it faster (I did Master Cleanse before I had my colonoscopy because I did not want to take all the chemical stuff they told me to take before the colonoscopy — the dcctor and the physician’s assistant both actually asked me what I had done to be so clean).  

Right now, I am really tired of allergies and the “morning itch” so it’s time to go Master Cleanse.  I’m on Day 3, and the morning itch is not so bad, but it is still agonizing.  I don’t want to do chemical (allopathic medicine) interventions if I can avoid it while I am doing a fast.

Suddenly, I’ve remembered Four Thieves Oil It helped with “abominable itch” a while back.  Surely it will help this time.  It smells relatively nice, as well – people will just ask me what perfume I am wearing (it’s spicy).  It is working!

I’m happy.

Now, as I’m sitting here, after making up the new recipe, I’m noticing that my nose is not stuffed or dripping from the allergy I’ve been suffering.  I did not wash my hands after I finished making up the recipe, so they have Four Thieves Oil on them (even though they do not feel oily. Sneezing,  I got the Four Thieves Oil on my nose when I held the tissue to my nose.  Ooh la la! I may actually have an allergy remedy going on here. I’ll carry this bottle in my bag tomorrow for itching and for allergy stuff)

FOUR THIEVES: vinegar & oil recipes

I waited patiently, and then, when I really needed it, I got what I had asked for.

Four Thieves is some nifty stuff. I am using the oil with good results to date. The Four Thieves vinegar is very good, as well.

FOUR THIEVES VINEGAR: ANTIVIRAL GERMICIDE Possible Alternative for Flu Shots

Herbal lore has it that, while the Plague was raging in France, a rash of burglaries of plague victims’ homes was discovered. No effort was made, however, to apprehend the thieves, as it was assumed that they would soon succumb to the contagion in the homes they had robbed..

The thieves carried on their crime spree for some time, and people began to wonder why they had not become ill and die. It was then that the authorities began to pursue them… to discover the secret of their immunity to the Plague.

Once the burglars had been apprehended, they struck a bargain with the authorities, that they should be set free in exchange for revealing the secret to their immunity to the Plague.

It was then that the four thieves revealed the herbal disinfectant formula that rendered them immune to the Plague.

Current theorists suggest that this formula, now called “Four Thieves Vinegar”, may offer protection against fearsome possible threats, such as the flu, smallpox, and biological weapons, which concern us today, as all of its ingredients are either strong anti-bacterial agents, or have potent anti-viral properties.

FOUR THIEVES OIL
1 part eucalyptus
1 part rosemary
1 part cinnamon
1 part clove
1 part lemon
Carrier oil (olive, jojoba, or your choice)
Mix

I put 50 drops of each oil in a 2 oz. bottle and then top it off with jojoba oil (I like jojoba oil because it seems to never go rancid).

An alternative recipe:

200 drops Clove Bud Oil
175 drops Lemon Oil
100 drops Cinnamon Oil
75 drops Eucalyptus Oil
50 drops Rosemary

Mix with jojoba oil.

APPLICATIONS:

• Apply 1-2 drops of Four Thieves on the bottoms of the feet and on the nape of the neck.
• Apply under the arms and on the chest.
• Diffuse for 20 minutes or less at work or at home.

A PERSONAL NOTE:

I have used Four Thieves for the itch that accompanied a nasty rash that doctors could not diagnose (where is House when you need him?)… I originally applied the Four Thieves oil because I was worried about possible infection after scratching myself bloody in my sleep. The Four Thieves smarted quite a bit when I first applied it, but, then, miraculously, the itch subsided and allowed me to have a life. Although the rash did not disappear, it did diminish markedly every time I applied the oil.

JAPANESE WATER CURE

JAPANESE WATER CURE

You have heard it before: Drink lots of water to stay healthy.

Now, this from Japan:
My Japanese room-mate has told me that it is fashionable in Japan to drink water immediately upon arising, because Japanese research has shown that this “Water Treatment” can effect a 100% cure for a number of diseases, including:

arthritis

epilepsy

hemorrhoids (piles)

asthma

ear, nose, throat disease

kidney and urinary tract diseases

body aches

eye disease

meningitis

bronchitis

gastritis

menstrual and other female reproductive disorders

cancer

headaches

obesity

constipation

heart disease

tuberculosis

diabetes

heart palpitations

vomiting

diarrhea

high blood pressure

METHOD OF TREATMENT
• Upon arising in the morning, before you brush your teeth, drink 640 ml (approximately 2-1/2 C) water.
• After drinking the water, brush your teeth and gargle, as desired, but wait 45 minutes before eating or drinking anything else.
• After 45 minutes, eat your normal breakfast.
• Avoid eating or drinking for 2 hours during the treatment period.

NOTE: The elderly or infirm, who cannot tolerate 4 glasses of water at once should build up their water intake gradually, from 1/2 C to the recommended 2-1/2 C before breakfast.

Although there are no side effects to this totally natural treatment, in the beginning, you may notice an increased frequency of urination until the body accustoms itself to the new pattern of water intake.

RECOMMENDED SCHEDULE OF TREATMENT
for alleviation or cure

• Arthritis patients should follow the 3 days during the week 1, then begin the full daily treatment in week 2.
• Cancer – 180 days
• Constipation – 10 days
• Diabetes – 30 days
• Gastritis – 10 days
• High Blood Pressure – 30 days
• Tuberculosis – 90 days

Japanese researchers suggest that the Water Treatment be added permanently to one’s daily routine for ongoing benefit.
