If urinary incontinence affects your daily activities, don't hesitate to see your doctor. A healthy, low-salt diet is healthy for the kidneys because it keeps blood pressure in check. If your kidneys are otherwise healthy, then occasional use of these medicines for inflammation and pain control is probably fine, but keep continuous use to less than 2 weeks and dosages under mg daily. They may recommend a supplement. These combined help put cancer to sleep. There is absolutely no earthy matter in distilled water, nor in rain water, snow nor hail except what may be gathered by contact with house-tops, etc.
Ask your doctor if taking probiotics is a good idea for you. In general, probiotic foods and supplements are thought to be safe for most people, though some people with immune system problems or other serious health conditions shouldn't take them. In some cases, mild side effects might include an upset stomach, diarrhea, gas , and bloating for the first couple of days after you start taking them.
They may also trigger allergic reactions. Stop taking them and talk to your doctor if you have problems. How Do They Work?
Some of the ways they may keep you healthy: When you lose "good" bacteria in your body, for example after you take antibiotics, probiotics can help replace them.

Some common conditions they treat are: Irritable bowel syndrome Inflammatory bowel disease IBD Infectious diarrhea caused by viruses, bacteria, or parasites Diarrhea caused by antibiotics There is also some research that shows they're useful for problems in other parts of your body.
The first visible state of a human embryo is a small, globulous, pulpy or jelly-like substance, similar to albumen, or the white of an egg. In this pulpy globule various particles of more solid matter appear. These gradually increase in bulk and density until they come in contact with one another. The different points of contact are slowly modified into joints or hinges and thus a distinct framework of solid matter, a skeleton, is gradually formed.
During the formation of this framework the surrounding pulpy matter accumulates and changes in form until at length that degree of organization develops which is known as a fetus. This becomes larger, firmer, and more fully organized up to the time of birth, when the state of infancy begins.
The same process of consolidation which commenced with the first visible stage of existence, still continues. The being passes through the different stages of infancy, childhood, youth, manhood or womanhood, old age, and at last comes to the change that is called death.
Each of these stages is characterized by an increasing degree of hardness and solidity. There is a gradual increase in density and firmness of the bones, tendons, cartilages, ligaments, tissues, membranes, the coverings and even the very substance of the stomach, liver, lungs, and other organs.
The joints become rigid and dry. They begin to crack and grate when they are moved, because the synovial fluid, which oils and softens them, is diminished in quantity and rendered too thick and glutinous to serve that purpose. The heart, the brain, and the entire muscular system, spinal cord, nerves, eyes, etc.
Millions upon millions of the minute capillary vessels which ramify and spread like the branches of a tree throughout the entire body, gradually choke up and change into solid fiber, no longer pervious to the blood.
The larger blood vessels, both arteries and veins, indurate, lose their elasticity, grow smaller, and become incapable of carrying the required amount of blood. The fluids of the body thicken and become putrid, loaded with earthy matter. The skin withers and grows wrinkled and dry. The hair falls off for lack of oil. The teeth decay and drop out for lack of gelatin. The motor nerves begin to dry up and the movements of the body become awkward and slow. The senses fail; the circulation of the blood is retarded; it stagnates and congeals in the vessels.
More and more the body loses its former powers. Once elastic, healthy, alert, pliable, active and sensitive, it becomes rigid, slow, and insensible. Finally, it dies of old age. The question now arises, What is the cause of this gradual ossification of the body, bringing rigidity, decrepitude, and death? From the purely physical standpoint, chemists seem to be unanimous in the opinion that it is principally an increase of phosphate of lime bone matter , carbonate of lime common chalk , and sulphate of lime plaster of Paris , with occasionally a little magnesia and an insignificant amount of other earthy matters.
The only difference between the body of old age and that of childhood is the greater density, toughness and rigidity, caused by the greater proportion of calcareous, earthy matter entering into the composition of the former. The bones of a child are composed of three parts of gelatin to one part of earthy matter. In old age this proportion is reversed. What is the source of this death-dealing accumulation of solid matter?
It seems to be axiomatic that the entire body is nourished by the blood and that everything contained in the body, of whatever nature, has first been in the blood. Analysis shows that the blood holds earthy substances of the same kind as the solidifying agents--and mark! This is highly important. It shows that in every cycle the blood deposits earthy substances. It is therefore the common carrier that chokes up the system.
But its supply of earthy matter must be replenished, otherwise it could not continue to do this. Where does it renew its deadly load? There can be but one answer to that question--from the food and drink; there is absolutely no other source. The food and drink which nourish the body must be, at the same time, the primary source of the calcareous, earthy matter which is deposited by the blood all over the system, causing decrepitude and finally death.
To sustain physical life it is necessary that we eat and drink but as there are many kinds of food and drink, it behooves us, in the light of the above facts, to ascertain, if possible, what kinds contain the smallest proportion of destructive matter.
If we can find such food we can lengthen our lives and, from an occult standpoint, it is desirable to live as long as possible in each dense body, particularly after a start has been made toward the path.
So many years are required to educate, through childhood and hot youth, each body inhabited, until the spirit can at last obtain some control over it, that the longer we can retain a body that has become amenable to the spirit's promptings, the better.
Therefore it is highly important that the pupil partake of such food and drink only as will deposit the least amount of hardening matter and at the same time keep the excretory organs active. The skin and the urinary system are the saviors of man from an early grave.
Were it not that by their means, most of the earthy matter taken with our food is eliminated, no one would live ten years. It has been estimated that ordinary, undistilled spring water contains carbonate and other compounds of lime to such an extent that the average quantity used each day by one person in the form of tea, coffee, soup, etc. It is also a significant fact that although phosphate of lime is always found in the urine of adults, it is not found in the urine of children, because in them the rapid formation of bone requires that this salt be retained.
During the period of gestation there is very little earthy matter in the urine of the mother, as it is used in the building of the fetus. In ordinary circumstances, however, earthy matter is very much in evidence in the urine of adults and to this we owe the fact that physical life reaches even its present length.
Undistilled water, when taken internally, is man's worst enemy, but used externally, it becomes his best friend. It keeps the pores of the skin open, induces circulation of the blood and prevents the stagnation which affords the best opportunity for the depositing of the earthy, death-dealing phosphate of lime.
Harvey, who discovered the circulation of the blood, said that health denotes a free circulation and disease is the result of an obstructed circulation of the blood.
The bathtub is a great aid in keeping up the health of the body and should be freely used by the aspirant to the higher life. Perspiration, sensible and insensible, carries more earthy matter out of the body than any other agency. As long as fuel is supplied and the fire kept free from ashes, it will burn. The kidneys are important in carrying away the ashes from the body, but despite the great amount of earthy matter carried away by the urine, enough remains in many cases to form gravel and stone in the bladder, causing untold agony and often death.
Let no one be deceived into thinking that water contains less stone because it has been boiled. The stone that forms on the bottom of the teakettle has been left there by the evaporated water which escaped from the kettle as steam.
If the steam were condensed, we should have distilled water, which is an important adjunct in keeping the body young. There is absolutely no earthy matter in distilled water, nor in rain water, snow nor hail except what may be gathered by contact with house-tops, etc. Those suffering from urinary diseases should never drink any but distilled water.
It may be said generally of the solid foods we take into our system, that fresh vegetables and ripe fruits contain the greatest proportion of nutritious matter and the least of earthy substances.
As we are writing for the aspirant to the higher life and not for the general public, it may also be said that animal food should be entirely avoided, if possible.
No one who kills can go very far along the path of holiness. We do even worse than if we actually killed, for in order to shield ourselves from the personal commission of the act of killing, and still reap its results, we force a fellow being, through economic necessity, to devote his entire time to murder, thereby brutalizing him to such an extent that the law will not allow him to act as a juror in cases of capital crime, because his business has so familiarized him with the taking of life.
The enlightened know the animals to be their younger brothers and that they will be human in the Jupiter Period. We shall then help them as the Angels, who were human in the Moon Period, are now helping us, and for an aspirant to high ideals to kill--either in person or by proxy--is out of the question. Several very important food products from animals, such as milk, cheese and butter, may be used. These are the results of the processes of life and require no tragedies to convert them into food.
Milk, which is an important food for the occult student, contains no earthy matter of any consequence and has an influence upon the body possessed by no other food.
During the Moon Period man was fed upon the milk of Nature. Universal food was absorbed by him and the use of milk has a tendency to put him in touch with the Cosmic forces and enable him to heal others. It is popularly supposed that sugar or any saccharine substance is injurious to the general health, and particularly to the teeth, causing their decay and the resulting toothache. Only under certain circumstances is this true. It is harmful in certain diseases, such as biliousness and dyspepsia, or if held long in the mouth as candy, but if sparingly used during good health and the amount gradually increased as the stomach becomes accustomed to its use, it will be found very nourishing.
The health of Negroes becomes greatly improved during the sugar-cane harvest time, notwithstanding their increased labor. This is attributed solely to their fondness for the sweet cane-juice. The same may be said of horses, cows, and other animals in those localities, which are all fond of the refuse syrup fed to them.
They grow fat in harvest time, their coats becoming sleek and shining. Horses fed on boiled carrots for a few weeks will get a coat like silk, owing to the saccharine juices of that vegetable. Sugar is a nutritious and beneficial article of diet and contains no ash whatever. Fruits are an ideal diet. They are in fact evolved by the trees to induce animal and man to eat them, so that the seed may be disseminated, as flowers entice bees for a similar purpose.
But if you drink too much of it, you might notice that stew and urine come out red. It is one fruit many love. But do you really know all it can do for you healthy or you have always felt like it is just one of those foods? To begin with, pineapple comes with a lot of vitamin C. This is a natural antioxidant. So it improves overall immunity from so many diseases.
Additionally, it keeps teeth strong. It also has a hand in making gums more resistant to bacteria which can damage them. This has a number of functions. Firstly, it promotes digestion by breaking down protein particles.
It also plays an important role in normal functionality of the bile. Again, bromelain is also there for anti inflammation. And lastly, it prevents menstrual disorders. Pineapple juice goes on in terms of healthy benefits with manganese. This compound makes bones grow in young people but at the same time, strengthens them in the elderly. And if you think your eyesight is deteriorating, then a glass of pineapple juice daily might save you from getting grasses.
It has beta carotene and vitamin A, both of which the eye needs to maintain its health. To those who have arthritis, you will be glad to know that pineapple juice also helps you with that.
Pomegranate is another popular fruit that many are yet to discover its benefits. Like with all the juices here, it deserves a mention as it packs a bunch of healthy benefits. This juice reduces the occurrence of inflammation of the lining of blood vessels thereby improving heart health. It also prevents the blockage of arteries which might restrict blood flow to both the heart and other vital organs. As for the fight against cancer, pomegranate also has shares in that war.
It has antioxidants properties that help destroy free radicals which are notorious for causing cancer. For those with anemia, smile because pomegranate contains iron which is instrumental ending anemia or preventing it from happening in the first place.
Despite having a lot of sugar itself, pomegranate helps in the maintenance of blood sugar. And if you are struggling with skin care products that seem to never work, perhaps now is the best time to try pomegranate. It will make your skin vibrant and glow.

The juice can also help with general body fatigue. It relaxes the muscles and also provide relief from pain associated with arthritis. The benefits go on as Noni juice is also responsible for boosting the immune system.
It, for example, has compounds that help protect the liver from damage. Again, it lowers the level of cholesterol. This is from a study that was conducted on smokers. Those who drunk Noni juice showed a decrease in the level of cholesterol while those who drunk a placebo showed no sign of improvement. And as a bonus, Noni juice will normalize blood sugar levels. But as always, there are precautions to be considered if you will be taking this juice.
If you have liver or kidney problems, you might need to stay away. And if you are taking other medication like chemotherapy drugs , be sure it is safe as the two can react. Grapefruits are among the top ranking foods that offer so many benefits.
The juice comes with a punch that most diseases find hard to survive. As a citrus fruit, it is packed with vitamin C. As you might already know, this is an antioxidant that fights free radicals. So you will be spared from oxidative stress. Additionally, vitamin C improves the cardiovascular system so dying from diseases like heart disease, stroke is out of the equation. Pink and red grapefruits have a compound known as Lycopene. This is responsible in halting the development of prostate and colon cancer.
It is not clear if Lycopene can also reduce the likelihood of other cancers but if it could, it would not be a surprise. In a different study, it was discovered that grapefruit juice lowered cholesterol.
This was due to another compound found in grapefruits called pectivin. This was tested on animals. Other notable benefits include its ability to bring down a fever and reduce the risk of cold. On the flip side, it has high levels of flavonoid naringin. This compound is known to react with other drugs. So if you are taking any type of medication, you might need to consult with a medical professional.
Again, excessive consumption can result in high concentrations of calcium getting to the bones and teeth causing them to decay. So drink in moderation and you will be fine. Almost everyone knows lemons and understands how healthy they are. But like with everything, you might underestimate them.
