One of my strongest experiences in confirming the power of the unseen realm began in 1978, when I met and married a fellow mountaineer, Paul Frederick. We were crazy in love and planning a family when, at only 35 years old, he was diagnosed with colon cancer and given two weeks to live. From the moment of his diagnosis, we were determined to overcome it. We explored conventional and alternative healing methods, and quickly became immersed in energy work, visualization, Herbal Medicine and Native American medicine. Paul was part Cherokee, so his mother provided us with books and healers from the Native American tradition. She got us an audience with a famous Sioux healer, Chief Fools Crow.
There are two parts of the goldenseal plant used in herbal medicine; the leaves and the root. I do not recommend using the leaves because they are far less potent than the root. goldenseal root is so potent at destroying bacteria and viruses that it will kill the good bacteria in your intestines if you take it continuously so if you need to take it for more than a few days, also take acidophilus or yogurt to replenish your intestinal flora.
Cancer – This is a disease we’ve all been introduced to in one way or another. But hardly anyone ever tells you how it works. Well, let me explain. Cancer is an unnatural division and propagation of cells. Plus, when you get too many cells growing in one place, they can invade and destroy other tissues. This disease can travel to all parts of the body, and form in many organs; such as, the kidneys, the lungs, the bladder and stomach.
When I get a sudden and particularly nasty respiratory infection, I actually open a goldenseal capsule and pour half of it into my mouth. It’s probably the most bitter taste I’ve every experienced but the solution works its way into my lungs to fight off the infection and that’s worth the suffering through the taste. The bottom line is that taking goldenseal at the onset of colds, flu’s, intestinal and respiratory infections can help your body fight off illness like you’ve never seen. It might save your life or the life of someone you love. Keep a bottle for yourself and one to give away.
