My Brethren, I wish that ye may be in health and prosper, even as your soul Prospers (3 Jn 1:2)

World Prayer Bible Bible with Health Information Bible with Healing Information

I first learned about alkaline water benefits many years ago from a natural health practitioner who had a background in macrobiotics. He taught me that most illnesses arise due to an acidic state in the body. He said that healthy human cells thrive in a slightly alkaline environment. In fact, the "normal" pH range for blood is between 7.30 and 7.45. Blood pH is a good indication of how much oxygen is available to the cells. This fact is really important! According to many doctors and health practitioners, lack of oxygen to the cells is one of the primary causes of most diseases, including cancer. My friend also said that we become more susceptible to getting colds and flus when we are more acidic because many unhealthy bacteria and viruses thrive in a slightly acidic environment. So I took his advice to heart and started studying about the acid-alkaline balance in the body macrobiotic books and lectures. At the time, I learned that the two primary causes of acidity in the body are stress and an animal protein diet.

Here's What I learned about Alkaline Water

Top 3 Alkaline Water Benefits I see as As a health and nutrition consultant today, I frequently experience how difficult it is for many people to change their diets or lifestyles toward a more alkaline way of living. So I am always open to finding solutions that are easier. Drinking alkaline water is certainly easy, but is it beneficial? Three of the most important alkaline water benefits include: Alkaline water can help neutralize acidity in the body. Alkaline water can reduce the amount of free radical damage. Alkaline water helps keep bones and teeth strong and dense. In summary, what I have learned over the years is that alkaline water does afford many health benefits - but it does not override all of our bad habits. My First Alkaline Water Cure was During my early years of researching alkaline water benefits, I discovered what seemed like a simple and quick way to alkalize my body. I don't remember for sure, but I think it was from an Edgar Cayce remedy for colds and flus. At the first sign of symptoms, I simply added 1 tablespoon of baking soda to a glass of water and drank it on an empty stomach every 2 to 3 hours throughout the day. To be honest, I have no idea if it helped or not but I have to admit that I never experienced a prolonged illness. Considering what I know now, I wouldn't recommend this approach to anyone. Drinking too much baking soda with water can be dangerous, especially when there is food in the stomach. In addition, I believe the alkaline water benefits from using baking soda are minimal and temporary at best. I certainly never saw any change in the overall alkalinity of my body fluids over time. Alkaline Water Benefits of pH Drops, Powders, or Tablets Today there are a number of products on the market, such as alkalizing pH drops, powders, or tablets, which are designed to be added to water and are supposed to provide health benefits. In my experience, the problem with these products is that they create what I call an "artificial alkalinity." People can easily become too alkaline with these products, creating other problems such as bladder and kidney infections. I wouldn't say these products have no value, but I believe they should only be used periodically, if at all, and certainly not on a daily basis. In addition, I think baking soda does essentially the same thing - and it's far less expensive. Even after the baking soda phase, increasing body alkalinity by drinking alkaline water made sense to me so I continued to pursue and learn more.

What I learned about Investing in Alkaline Water Machines

True Alkaline Water Choices that I've learned that water that is alkaline in pH (in a healthy range between 7.0 and 9.5 pH) has more alkaline minerals in it than acidic minerals. Tap water that is treated with disinfectants such as chlorine becomes acidic. However, laws require the municipal water to be alkaline in order to preserve the city pipes from acid corrosion. The problem is that the way our treatment centers handle this requirement is by adding lye and/or other unhealthy (i.e., toxic) alkalizing agents to the water. My question to them is, what do you think the chlorine and lye is doing to our body's "pipes" when we drink that water? Alkaline water benefits only come from water that is free of contaminants and contains more naturally occurring alkaline minerals than acidic minerals. Unfortunately, true alkaline water is hard to come by. Most bottled water is acidic. Water that is purified via distillation or reverse osmosis (both of which remove minerals in the water) is also acidic. Well water is a possible choice if the source water is consistently free of contaminants (or if used with an effective filter) and if the water is rich in alkaline minerals, such as calcium and magnesium. Drinking spring water is a good choice. Natural spring water often contains a level of minerals that is beneficial to health. Mineral-rich water will usually have a neutral or slightly alkaline pH. Ionized water is an even better choice because the water contains ionic alkaline minerals. The ionization process makes the alkaline minerals even more bio-available to the body because of their electrical charge. Water ionizers can be expensive. But when it comes to health, I have certainly learned that an ounce of prevention is worth much more than a pound of "cure" (i.e., the cost of medical expenses). In fact, with all due respect to the medical profession, most of the time the treatments don't cure anything; they just temporarily suppress the symptoms with medications. Thus I will continue to pursue natural solutions that support the body to heal itself

Diet, exercise and a support network are the main focus of those who follow the weight watchers diet. There are support groups that hold regular meetings which supporters can attend physically or online. Online or not, support and education are not lacking for weight watchers dieters. Yevo Essential Nutrients is different and includes all 43 Essential Nutrients. South Beach Diet helps to control insulin levels by consuming unrefined slow carbohydrates. The proponent of this diet believes that low-fat regimes were not effective in the long run. The Raw Food Diet otherwise known as Raw Foodism follows a diet composed of foods and drinks which are not processed, plant-based foods and whatever is organic. Raw foodists suggest that three fourths of your daily food should be uncooked food. Most raw foodists are also vegans, not eating animal based foods. The Mediterranean Diet is a typical diet of those from southern Europe, which consists mainly of plants foods, fruits, nuts and beans, cheese and dairy products, meat of fish, poultry and red meat, plus moderate amounts of wine.

The influence of people's commitment to proper nutrition has also resulted to the introduction of more food supplement, ensuring that people can easily satisfy their nutritional needs. With Yevo Essential Nutrients , you always have energy to do the things you have to do. Getting enough nutrients on a regular basis is undoubtedly the most efficient way of becoming healthier and keeping your excellent figure. Being busy is not good enough reason for not eating right. You can simply drop by a supermarket or search in online stores for nutritious food packs.

I have been taking the Stemfit Active capsules since January. I not only have been having great results, but have been able to help a lot of people already by sharing the capsules with them. I have received some amazing stories on how the product has benefited them. I decided to stop taking the capsules for a while, just to see what would happen. Believe it or not, I almost immediately started waking up at 3:30 in the morning (I used to always have stemfi). It was then that I realized that the capsules had been allowing me to sleep all the way up to 6:00 a.m. (my usual time to get up and go to work). WHAT AN ACCOMPLISHMENT, to actually be able to get a good night's sleep. I am back on the capsules and loving them.

in 1938 an interesting natural cancer treatment was proposed as a simple, effective answer to cancer – almost any cancer. This treatment approach is not well known because it is considered alternative or experimental - or even dangerous - by the medical and scientific community and hence has been referenced primarily in obscure publications outside the mainstream press. This treatment approach is called alkaline therapy or pH therapy, and is based in part on observations of cultures without significant incidence of cancer and in part on scientific observations of and experimentation with cellular metabolism. The principles of pH therapy are very simple.

Some things I learned about Alkaline Water

The metabolism of cancer cells has a very narrow pH tolerance for cellular proliferation (mitosis), which is between 6.5 and 7.5. As such, if you can interfere with cancer cell metabolism by either lowering or raising the internal cancer cell pH, you can theoretically stop cancer progression. While lowering cancer cell pH (increasing acidity) is effective against cancer cell mitosis in the lab, increasing acid levels in the live body of a cancer patient puts stress on normal cells and causes a lot of pain. So the proposed alkaline therapy for people is a "high pH therapy" and has been developed to normalize the intracellular pH of the cancer patient's body through elimination of latent acidosis, while increasing the pH of cancer cells to a range above 7.5. According to published research, it is at that pH they revert to a normal cellular apoptosis cycle (programed cell death). Ideally, this approach begins with an alkaline diet. There is general agreement amongst natural healers and medical professionals alike, that changing a cancer patient's diet is extremely helpful when someone is confronted with a cancer diagnosis. In a previous article, I outlined the six steps that every cancer patient should take to provide the best chance to heal from and prevent future recurrences of cancer using alkaline diet principles.

Buy a water ionizer. Water ionizers attach to your faucet and are very user friendly. The water becomes electrically enhanced (ionized) because the ionizer runs it over positive and negative electrodes. Doing this separates the water into alkalized water and acidic water. The alkalized water makes up about 70% of the produced water and can be used for drinking. Don't just discard the acidic water. Acidic water can kill many types of bacteria. You can use it for washing your body, killing some of the bacteria living on your skin. Purchase an ionizing water filter. These filters are easily transportable and cheaper than buying an electric ionizer. They work in a similar fashion to a normal filter. Pour water into the filter and let it sit for three to five minutes. While you are waiting, the water is being sent through a series of filters. Once it passes through the filters, it sits in a pool of alkalizing minerals. These filters can often be found with the kitchen appliances in home stores.

How I became and Expert on Alkaline Water

Add pH drops. pH drops contain potent alkaline minerals and are highly concentrated. You can purchase pH drops at health food stores or online. Follow the directions on your specific pH bottle to determine how many drops you should put into your water. Keep in mind that while pH drops increase the alkalinity of your water, they do not filter out any of the things like chlorine or fluoride that can be found in your tap water. Cut up one lemon into eighths. Add the lemons to the water but do not squeeze them--simply place them in the water. You can add one tablespoon of pink Himalayan sea salt to your lemon water if desired. Adding the salt mineralizes your alkaline water. Use baking soda. Add 1/8 tbsp baking soda to an 8 oz. glass of water. Baking soda has a high alkaline content. When the baking soda mixes with the water, it increases the alkaline properties of the water. Shake (if you are using a water bottle) or stir (if using a glass) the mixture vigorously to make sure the baking soda mixes in thoroughly with the water. If you are on a low sodium diet, do not add baking soda to your water. Baking soda is high in sodium.

The Book of Zechariah

Return to Index

Chapter 1

1

In the eighth month, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the LORD unto Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying,

2

The LORD hath been sore displeased with your fathers.

3

Therefore say thou unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Turn ye unto me, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will turn unto you, saith the LORD of hosts.

4

Be ye not as your fathers, unto whom the former prophets have cried, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Turn ye now from your evil ways, and from your evil doings: but they did not hear, nor hearken unto me, saith the LORD.

5

Your fathers, where are they? and the prophets, do they live for ever?

6

But my words and my statutes, which I commanded my servants the prophets, did they not take hold of your fathers? and they returned and said, Like as the LORD of hosts thought to do unto us, according to our ways, and according to our doings, so hath he dealt with us.

7

Upon the four and twentieth day of the eleventh month, which is the month Sebat, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the LORD unto Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying,

8

I saw by night, and behold a man riding upon a red horse, and he stood among the myrtle trees that were in the bottom; and behind him were there red horses, speckled, and white.

9

Then said I, O my lord, what are these? And the angel that talked with me said unto me, I will shew thee what these be.

10

And the man that stood among the myrtle trees answered and said, These are they whom the LORD hath sent to walk to and fro through the earth.

11

And they answered the angel of the LORD that stood among the myrtle trees, and said, We have walked to and fro through the earth, and, behold, all the earth sitteth still, and is at rest.

12

Then the angel of the LORD answered and said, O LORD of hosts, how long wilt thou not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah, against which thou hast had indignation these threescore and ten years?

13

And the LORD answered the angel that talked with me with good words and comfortable words.

14

So the angel that communed with me said unto me, Cry thou, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy.

15

And I am very sore displeased with the heathen that are at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction.

16

Therefore thus saith the LORD; I am returned to Jerusalem with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the LORD of hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem.

17

Cry yet, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; My cities through prosperity shall yet be spread abroad; and the LORD shall yet comfort Zion, and shall yet choose Jerusalem.

18

Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and behold four horns.

19

And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What be these? And he answered me, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.

20

And the LORD shewed me four carpenters.

21

Then said I, What come these to do? And he spake, saying, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man did lift up his head: but these are come to fray them, to cast out the horns of the Gentiles, which lifted up their horn over the land of Judah to scatter it.
