Benefits of Magnesium, an essential mineral found in almonds, spinach, avocados, cashews and salmon
(20 almonds contain 80 mg magnesium)! Beware though! Keep daily intake from all sources under 500 mg!
Now You Can Protect Yourself Against Alzheimer’s
What if you couldn’t remember who your children are? Couldn’t remember where you live? Couldn’t remember what you did today? That’s the life of an Alzheimer’s patient. But it doesn’t have to be yours.
Researchers say a certain natural extract is a “safe and effective medicine, [it] remarkably improves the cognition, behavior, [activity of daily life], and mood of AD patients.” You can also take it to prevent Alzheimer’s from ever striking you.
This Mineral Prevents Colorectal Cancer
It’s one of the hardest cancers to identify. It’s also the second deadliest cancer to hit both men and women.
Colorectal cancer killed more than 50,000 people in the United States in 2010.
Its symptoms can mimic less serious conditions. This includes irritable bowel syndrome and even hemorrhoids.
Most colorectal cancers, up to 95 percent, are adenocarcinomas. They begin with a growth called an adenoma. It’s basically a more gentle way of saying “tumor.” Eventually, they can turn cancerous.
But it might not happen for years, even decades. This is why polyps can become a serious threat to your health. But you can lower your risk of ever getting them in the first place.
This important mineral helps prevent tumors and lowers your risk of developing colorectal cancer.
In the battle against colorectal cancer, magnesium is essential.
It’s found in our bones and soft tissue. It’s also present in many foods.
Magnesium helps in over 300 enzyme systems in the body. They support muscle and nerve function, blood pressure, blood sugar control, and energy production.
It’s the mineral that may help you beat this type of cancer. One study follows 768 cases of colorectal adenoma and 709 control subjects. The results show that for every 100 mg of magnesium you add to your diet each day, you can lower your risk for developing a growth by 13 percent.
But if you already have a growth, you lower your risk of developing colorectal cancer by 12 percent.
The more magnesium you have in your body, the lower your risk. We recommend that you aim for 400–500 mg a day.
It’s easy to get that much magnesium from food. One ounce of almonds has 80 mg of magnesium. That’s only about 20 almonds.
Some other great sources of magnesium are spinach, cashews, avocado, and salmon. Chances are if you’re already eating these foods, you’re helping to keep cancer out of the picture completely. You can get extra magnesium from a supplement as well. Citrate, glycinate, and taurate are good forms to look for.
Be careful not to go overboard with magnesium. This is especially true if you have kidney problems. Weak kidneys may have a hard time handling too much magnesium. A large buildup of magnesium can lead to side effects ranging from low blood pressure to coma and even death.
You don’t have to live in fear of getting colorectal cancer. But with so many new cases each year, it’s a reality that isn’t going away.
Adding more magnesium to your diet may lower your risk for developing colorectal cancer.
P.S. According to one report, when a leading doctor at the Sloan‐Kettering Cancer Center found out that he had advanced‐stage cancer, he told his colleagues, “Do anything you want—but no chemotherapy!” Not surprising. Doctor’s know better than anyone how devastating chemo can be. So why aren’t more doctors using THIS alternative, Nobel Prize winner-studied, natural treatment instead? A study on people who received it for cancer and other ailments noted that “the results have been spectacular; the only side effect is ‘chronic good health.’”
Using magnesium as a medicine goes back all the way to 17th century England. A farmer from Epsom found that his well water had a healing effect on the skin. The main ingredient, magnesium sulfate, is still in Epsom salt to this day.
Men over 40! Do you like what you see in the mirror?
You know, you can change that reflection.
One hormone—which decreases as you age—is responsible for that “V-shape” young men have and women love.
A doctor in Germany has shown that raising this hormone gives you decreased body fat, lower waist measurement, increased libido, improved erection, lower blood pressure, better cholesterol, and more.
You can do it all on your own, without a doctor’s prescription.
ANGER AND FORGIVENESS
situations in life, it is
natural to get angry by people’s
behavior. Up to this stage it is
natural, but how to react to
this situation is to a greater
extent in our hands. Anger
causes stresses which have
adverse effects on human body
specially the heart. When a
man is angry, certain enzymes
are released by the body causing
a rise in the blood pressure and
cholesterol. It increases the
demand of oxygen by the heart’s
muscles cells and causes
stickiness to blood platelets
which may lead to the formation
blood clots and may lead to
heart attack or stroke.
Similarly, increase in blood
pressure in the arteries is also
a contributing factor leading to
heart attack. Anger affects
nervous system, liver, kidneys
and may cause depression.
Uncontrolled anger may lead to
violence causing severe damage
to the person himself or persons
science deals with this
situation under “Stress
Management”. There are a large
number of ways and methods how
to manage your stress, which
also include forgiveness and
our way of life i.e. Islam,
Allah, The Creator of human
race, knows the causes and
grants remedies to mankind.
al-Shurah Ayah 40: “The
recompense of evil will be
equivalent to the deed. He, who
pardons (the evil done to him)
and reforms himself, will
receive his reward from Allah.
He certainly does not love the
Surah al-Noor Ayah 22: “The well-to-do and the rich among you should not fail to give to relatives, the destitute, and Emmigrants for the cause of Allah. Be considerate and forgiving. Do you not want Allah to forgive you? Allah is All-Forgiving and All-Merciful.”
199: “Have forgiveness, preach
the truth, and keep away from
the ignorant ones.”
The Sunnah of
our beloved Noble Prophet
(s.a.w.a.s.) is in our view, how
he forgave people who caused
physical and emotional injuries
to him. He forgave all the
polytheists on the eve of “The
Victory of Makkah” who had
fought many wars with the
Muslims, inflicted inhuman
injuries to the people who
converted to Islam, forced him
to leave his place of birth and
migrate to Madinah.
The Commander of the Faithful, the Gateway of the Knowledge, Imam Ali (a.s.) says:
“Be afraid of your anger, because out of all the weapons of Shaitan, inciting anger (in a person) is his strongest (weapon).”
“I advise you to control anger and do not lose your temper.”
“Take pride in performing good acts, keeping away from blood-shed, doing justice to people, and suppressing anger.”
“Anger is akin to madness, and the person usually repents; if not, then his madness is confirmed.”
Infallible Imam Muhammad
al-Baqir (a.s.) said: “If anyone
is angry, he should lie down. If
he is angry with one of his
blood relation, then that person
should touch with his hands the
person in anger, then his anger
will cool down.
As a general rule, the angry person should immediately change the environment; either goes to a different room or go out of the house and gets some fresh air. When a person gets angry, electric charge is developed in his body. Hence the directive of the Imam to lie down when angry results in discharging the body of the electric charge generated.
