Mistletoe Not Just For Kissing Under

December 25, 2012 by  

Mistletoe is a plant that can often be found hanging around entryways and doorways during the holidays.

According to Scandinavian customs, any man or woman caught under the sprig of mistletoe must kiss. The leaves and branches of this bushy plant have been used by herbalists in Europe for centuries to help treat circulatory and respiratory problems. In extract form, it’s even mentioned as a possible natural solution to attack abnormal cell growth related to certain cancers.

Mistletoe is a parasite and can be found in nature growing on trees and shrubs. The sticky juice of the berries has been used by some cultures to trap birds.

    Here is a cure for cancer and one that can’t be taken’s B-17 and you can find it in acorns from an oak tree. I have millions of them and I get them when they are green but you could get them later. B-17 is bitter but it works and you don’t have to buy it…or travel to get it! B-17 is a natural cleanser..NO one will cut all the Oak trees down so get as many as you can and make a acorn cocktail and drink up or…eat them raw like I do…

      I know indigenous people ate acorns, but didn’t they have to leach the tanic acid out of them before consumption? Are you eating them as is?

    I wonder if they spend Christmas in Washington, kissing A$$ under the mistletoe?

    Felice Navidad!

    Mistletoe in it’s medicinal form is called Iscador.
    It has been used for many ailments but it has to be monitored to avoid any side effects. It is good to be aware of all of these different therapies that can help us, but there is no one magic bullit and you have to treat your body as a whole.

    Sadly, our current medical system has taught us that we just wait until we are sick, then go to our doctor for the magic pill. Well, we know that works a very small percentage of the time. It is like a gambler who wins once, then spends all of his money chasing after that elusive win.

    For alternative therapies to work, you have to set the stage through the proper monitoring of your acid/alkaline balance, systemic enzymes, diet, exercise and preventive herbs and supplements. Then you will get the best bang for your buck out of each therapy.

    Ben. i do appreciate your scripture selection for today.and your opinions in generial. there is something that bothers me; so i am writing for your thoughts about my thoughts..after the bengazi mess, i have began to wonder if maby obama and erick holder didn’t have something to do with inventing another bamboosling incident like, fast and furrious guns to mexico., my suspicious mind is trying to tell me that these two low life diabolical minded imp’s are exactly the kind that engage in this kind of deception.How ??? let us imigine that mr O and Mr H keeps records of people they can use in different situations. ie a hot head
    that may be known for expressing his negative opinion about muslims, their Allah and mohamed. they send their operatives to pal up to this guy and have videos made of him
    expressing his views before a phoney crowd. then releasing it some where in muslim country. then mr O and Mr H let hell break out and refuse to send help.
    I do know that GOD has a plan for the end of this age. He revealed it to King Nebuchadnezzar in about 605 B>C> ( Daniel chapter 2 )He revealed to the King that He was allotting a specific length of time for Gentiles to rule His World.and that the King was the first,and head of gold; after him would come three more Kingdoms.the 2nd =silver 3rd bronz 4th legs and feet of iron declining into iron and clay mixture in the ten toes. I believe we are in the feet.the ten kingdomes will be set up by has been about 2617 years ,all spirialling downward values = morals are in the cesspool.. Gods plan is very near fruition. now see verses 40–45
