It’s Right On Your Kitchen Shelf
The human body has an inherent ability to heal. Think of a cut or a broken bone. Given time, the cut heals; the bone mends. What accomplishes these small miracles? Nature. Nature cures. This is the basis of lasting healing and lasting health. The same intrinsic force mending a broken bone can heal arthritis; in both cases, the body can react to disturbances in its natural balance in a way that restores that natural balance. The bone is more easily repaired, for trauma created the problem suddenly, and no deep-seated underlying problem must be corrected for healing to occur. Arthritis is not so simple. Arthritis develops primarily because of years of faulty dietary habits. The broken bone heals even with somewhat faulty nutrition, but to heal arthritis, conditions causing it must be changed.
For nature to cure, one must understand what nature is – what is natural – and live by it. Even when this is accepted, a problem remains; few modern people understand what constitutes natural diet. And that natural diet is right on your kitchen shelf or even the refrigerator.
This week on One Cell One Light® Radio, Dr. Hildy and her returning guest Shoshanna Allison will discuss the benefits of a natural diet that is composed of foods that originated in the ancient lands of the Mediterranean such as grapefruit, garlic, bay leaf, rosemary, mint, grapes and their leaves and ginger. Yes, ginger was brought into the Mediterranean as one of the most highly prized commodities under the Roman Empire through trade routes developed by the Roman Army to Korea. And that may be just why Koreans have Roman feet.
These foods have many nutritional benefits and minerals within them. It has been shown in studies that cows fed trace minerals of manganese, cobalt, copper and iodine were immune to Brucella sp. infections when exposed to the disease in other animals as documented in the Merck Report, July 1949. Science is just now showing that eating the citrus pectin of grapefruit can ward off viral infections or warts as seen in several clinical trials.
Many of us have heard about and experienced the benefits of resveratrol from grapes and its seeds, but have you known about the benefits of its leaves through its pigments? These same grape leaves have been a staple food of the ancient Greeks and may have been the favorite delicacy of one of their greatest warriors – Achilles – just before he left for the ten-year Battle of Troy.<
Join Dr. Hildy and her guest as they share some ancient knowledge of these standard kitchen staples that are found in almost every home in the world on One Cell, One Light Radio!

Basil – .PDF
Basil ~ Basil is known as the “Mediterranean” cultivar typically called sweet basil. Its leaves contain many notable plant derived chemical compounds that are known to have disease preventing and health promoting properties, anti-oxidant protection against radiation-induced lipid peroxidation from its polyphenolic flavonoids like orientin and vicenin, while eugenol, citronellol, linalottl, citral, limonene and terpineol are known to have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. It is low in calories and contains no cholesterol, but is very rich source of many essential nutrients, minerals and vitamins that are required for optimum health. Basil herb contains exceptionally high levels of beta-carotene, vitamin A, cryptoxanthin, leutein and zeaxanthin. These compounds help act as protective scavengers against oxygen-derived free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) that play a role in aging and various disease processes. Zea-zanthin, a yellow flavonoid carotenoid compound, is selectively absorbed into the retinal macula lutea where it is found to filter harmful UV rays from reaching the retina. Studies suggest that common herbs, fruits, and vegetables that are rich in zea-xanthin anti-oxidant help to protect fro age-related macular disease (AMRD), especially in the elderly. Vitamin K in basil is essential for many coagulant factors in the blood and plays a vital role in the bone strengthening function by helping mineralization process in the bones.
Terrific Benefits of Ginger – .PDF

3. Ginger clears the ‘microcirculatory channels’ of the body, including the pesky sinuses that tend to flare up from time to time.
4. Feeling airsick or nauseous? Chew on ginger, preferably tossed in a little honey.
5. Can’t stop the toot-a-thon? Gas—oops—guess what?! Ginger helps reduce flatulence!
6. Tummy moaning and groaning under cramps? Munch on ginger.
7. Reeling under joint pain? Ginger, with its anti-inflammatory properties—can bring relief. Float some ginger essential oil into your bath to help aching muscles and joints.
8. Just had surgery? Chewing ginger post-operation can help overcome nausea.
9. Stir up some ginger tea to get rid of throat and nose congestion. And when there’s a nip in the air, the warming benefits of this tasty tea are even greater!
10. Bedroom blues? Try adding a gingery punch to a bowl of soup. (Pss…the Ayurvedic texts credit ginger with aphrodisiac properties)

Garlic is a hardy bulbous perennial (Allium sativum) of the lily family. The bulb is composed of ten to twelve small cloves. It is one of the most beneficial foods for the digestive system and has a good effect on the lymph, aiding in the elimination of noxious waste matter in the body. It is also a useful cleanser of the blood, therefore helpful in conditions of high blood pressure. Garlic tends to stimulate peristaltic action and the secretion of the digestive juices. Garlic has been found useful in cases of colds, asthma, chronic catarrh, bronchitis, fevers, gas, hardening of the arteries, thyroid hypo-function, sinusitis, and promotes the expectoration of phlegm and mucus. Eat it raw when possible – parsley, min or orange peelings, when chewed after the meal, help to eliminate the odor.
The subtle suggestion of garlic improves almost every recipe, enhancing the natural flavors of meats and vegetables, so that little or no additional seasoning is required.

BAY LEAF – FROM THE DESK OF DR. HILDY – BIG .PDF FILE about Bay Leaf
Bay leaves have been used in culinary dishes from all over the word to give the tasty dish a “little zing” since ancient times. The bay tree belongs to the family of Laurraceane of the genus Laurus nobilis. It is thought to originate from Asia Minor, but spread all over the Mediterranean and Asia during earlier times. The bay plant is a conical evergreen tree growing to 30 feet in height. Yellow or greenish white, star shaped flowers appear during early spring, which subsequently produce dark green-purplish single seeded berry. The leaves are eliptic and shiny dark green about 3 to 4 inches long, rather thick and leathery.
The leaves give off a sweet aroma when broken and added to a dish or your flour container to keep it fresh. When slightly wilted and dried, they are strongly aromatic. The dried fruit is also used as a flavoring agent in cuisines. MORE at .pdf file above
