My trail mix recipe

I have been making a great healthy trail mix that I would like to share with you. Lots of research and books talk about the benefits of raw nuts in our diet. Here is what I am currently doing and it taste great. Also it is a quick pick me up while I am on the road or a busy day in the home office.

Enjoy ~


This will fill about 5 sandwich baggies full ( at least) maybe more, you could fill snack size baggies for lunch boxes.

2 handfuls of pecans
2 handfuls of walnuts
2 handfuls of almonds (whole or sliced or both)
1 handfuls of sesame seeds
1 handfuls of pumpkin seeds
1 handfuls of organic raisins
2 handfuls of brazil nuts
1 – 2 handfuls of carob chips (carob in plant based, no sugar, no caffeine)
NO – peanuts or pine nuts !!!!

I like cashews but have not bought any organic ones yet ….
what I am getting ready to add is homemade dried banana’s and apple chips made from my dehydrator.
NOTE: make sure you get your nuts as organic as possible, no roasted or salted. Buy quality.


Healed Naturally

I was greatly encouraged by this testimony and I hope you are too. I strongly believe that God created the body to heal itself if the immune system is healthy and strong. I am doing a lot of the same things this man did to be cured. May the Lord bless you as He restores health unto thee.

Location: Home of a Mutual Friend (7 other people were present)
Name of Interviewer: Webster Kehr
Initials of Interviewee: K.B. (male)
State of Residence: Missouri

What Kind of Cancer Did You Have?
Malignant Melanoma, starting with a growth at the back and base of my neck.

How Far Had It Metastasisized?
Stage III

What Month and Year Was It First Diagnosed?
August, 1980 or 81 (he was 19 years old at the time)

What Technique Did They Use to Diagnose It?
They excised the mole and did a biopsy.

Did You Have Surgery?
Only the excise of the mole. They wanted to do extensive surgery, such as cutting a large hole where the mole was, and to the point of removing some of my lymph nodes, but I only let them cut out the mole. They also wanted to do 3 months of chemotherapy.

Did You Take Chemotherapy or Radiation?
No, even though I was only 19, because a friend of mine was a holistic doctor (a chiropractor), I was aware of alternative medicine and my options even at that time.

How Much Pressure Did the Doctors Put On You To Have Surgery, Chemotherapy, etc.?
Quite a bit, in fact tremendous pressure. They even called my mother and got her crying.

How Long Were You Expected To Live?
They did not give me a length.

What Was the Deciding Factor That Convinced You to Use Alternative Treatments?
Even though I was aware of alternative medicine, I did seriously consider doing what the doctors wanted. However, I did not like their very heavy handed approach to try and force me to do the surgery and chemotherapy.

What Was the Major Alternative Treatment You Used?
Fruit and vegetable juice diet. I studied books by Normal Walker and Paavo Airola.

What Other Alternative Treatments or Supplements Did You Take?
My friend (the chiropractor) sold Herbalife, so I took Herbalife. He was real big on enzymes.

Please Describe Your Treatment Plan:
First, I went on a two week fruit and vegetable juice fast (I bought a juicer the day I decided to fight the cancer on my own).

“During fasting, I took approx 1 quart of carrot juice per day, often mixed with spinach, cucumber, garlic, onion, celery, etc., whatever grows. Fruit juice was usually grapes, pineapple, apple, pear, grapefruit (stayed away from oranges) approx. 1/2 quart in the morning; veg. juice from noon till retire. veg. broth made daily afternoon. Daily lemon juice enemas (4-5 lemons per quart of water) in the morning usually after the first few days of the fast.”

Then, for one week, I ate nothing but fruits and vegetables.

“When not fasting, fruit juices 1-2 pints per day; carrot/veg. juices approx 1/2 quart per day.

Then, I went on a three week fruit and vegetable juice fast.

Then, for one week, I ate nothing but fruits and vegetables, although I added nuts at this time.

I did this, increasing the length of my fast, for six months. I also added more foods as I went along. The longest juice fast I went on was 37 days.

Other things I did involved a lot of exercise. When I was juice fasting, I walked up to 8 miles a day. When I was eating, I jogged 40 miles every week.

Did You Ever Fear Dying?
I always felt at peace with myself and never had a fear of dying.

Did You Eat Any Organic Foods?
As much as I could get.

What Kind of Water Did You Drink?
Always spring/bottled water.

What Month/Year Were You Diagnosed Cancer Free?
At the end of the six months of the raw food diet, I returned to the doctors and they declared me cancer free. (He has been in remission for over 20 years.)

What Are You Doing To Stay In Remission? I follow the 80-20 rule. 80% of the foods I eat are raw foods. 20% are not. I also run/bike/swim at least one hour per day now and believe in a daily sauna.

How Many Medical Doctors Have You Told That You Were Cured of Cancer With Natural Foods? More than 10, but none were oncologists.

Juicing Carrots

A Note About Carrots
A special note about carrots is in order. Like virtually all vegetables, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of phytonutrients (i.e. nutrients in plants not otherwise classified) in carrots that have not yet been identified or tested for cancer-fighting abilities. It may be that we do not yet know the best cancer-fighting nutrient in carrots, but based on many testimonials and some books, carrots may be the best cancer-fighting vegetable of all.

* “In a review of 206 human studies, carrots consistently emerged as one of the top cancer-fighting foods. The power of carrots lies in the group of pigments called carotenoids (beta-carotene is among this group), which give them their orange color.”

Closer to home, I have seen a clear pattern in the people I have interviewed, and testimonials that I have read, that carrot juice was the core element of their raw food diet. While the day may come that some other vegetable, such as beetroots (i.e. red beets), may be shown to be even better, until that day comes it would be advisable to make sure that carrots are the core of your vegetable juice.

Vegetables Juices
The RAW vegetables you should focus on are: carrots, cabbage, green asparagus, broccoli, red beets (i.e. beetroot), beet tops, cauliflower and related vegetables. Peppers also have cancer fighting substances. The spice turmeric can be added as well.

AS A MINIMUM, the vegetable juice should include:
1) Carrot juice (1 to 2 quarts/liters),
2) Beet juice (from at least 2 red beets, with their beet tops)
3) A significant amount of cruciferous vegetables including: broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower (this is for both the cancer and the critical protection of the liver)

Important Note: Beetroot can cause the urine of a person to turn red. Thus, if you take beetroot and your urine turns red, it is not necessarily blood in the urine.

A small and decreasing amount of fruit juices which contain very little glucose can be added for taste (more will be said about this issue below). Not all vegetables can be eaten raw, but the ones above can be eaten raw or juiced. You can also EAT any of these vegetables during your treatment to get bulk and fiber.

Here are just a few of the cancer cell killing nutrients (direct or indirect) in vegetables:
Raw Carrots (alpha carotene, beta carotene, Vitamin E, etc.),
Raw Broccoli (sulforaphanes/isothiocyanates),
Raw cabbage (isothiocyanates),
Green Asparagus (saponins),
Beetroot/red beets (proanthocyanidins (PAC’s or OPC’s)), and
Turmeric (a spice) (curcurmin).

A vegetable juice using 1 quart of carrots is the minimum level of carrots that is acceptable. Vegetable juices with 2 quarts of carrots has also been used by many people.

At least 80% or above of the vegetable juice should come from vegetables with known cancer-fighting abilities, although other vegetables are not far behind the ones I just mentioned.

God’s “will” to heal

It is God’s will to heal:

Exo. 15:26b I am the Lord that healeth thee

Deut. 7: 15 The Lord will take from thee all sickness…

Psa. 84:11b No good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.

Psa. 103:3 (He) forgiveth all iniquities, healeth all thy diseases…

Psa.107:20 He sent His Word, & healed them.

Jer. 30:17a For I will restore health unto thee, & will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord;

Mal 4:2a Son of righteousness arise with healing in His wings.

Mat. 10:1 He gave them power… all manner of sickness & disease.

Mk 1:40,41 And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.

And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.

Acts 9:34a Jesus Christ maketh thee whole

Jam. 5:15 Prayer of faith save sick…& the Lord shall rise him up.

Healed of Cancer – Dodie Osteen

I read this little book this month and it was such a tremendous encouragement to me. I wept as I turned the pages. Then I rejoiced as I neared the end of the book. Dodie has such a powerful testimony of God’s healing when doctors had given up hope. I pray that you will be encouraged by reading this little book, I read it in one evening it is only 76 pages. Matter of fact I was so excited about it I ordered 3 more copies from to give out to others for their encouragement.

Here’s to your healing and restoration !!!

By: Dodie Osteen
Healed Of Cancer

Description: I am so thankful to be alive today and to be able to bring you a message of hope! That is what Jesus is – Hope. I feel like the Psalmist David who said, “O Lord…I pleaded with you, and you gave me my health again. You brought me back from the brink of the grave, from death itself, and here I am alive!” (Psalm 30: 2,3, TLB)

The Word of God is extremely important to people who are fighting a battle with their health, for often it’s the only hope they have. I know I would have died if it had not been for the Word of God. I had been taught the truth from God’s Word. I had heard faith that built me up. Through the Word, I knew that Jesus didn’t want His children sick and that He not only died for our sins but also for our sickness. If it were not for the Word of God, I would not be alive and writing this book.

God said, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6). This is a sad thing, but it’s true. Many people do not have knowledge of the Word of God or know that it is God’s will for them to be healed. And this information is the difference between life and death!

Guacamole recipe

This is one of my new favorite dips. I eat this dip with organic blue corn chips. It is very satisfying and healthy. This recipe came from one of my favorite healthy cookbooks “Recipes for Life, from God’s Garden” by Rhonda J. Malkmus. Hope you give it a try and enjoy it too.

Here’s to restoring your health !!

Guacamole Dip

2 very ripe avocados, pitted and peeled
1 clove of garlic
1 cup of tomatoes
1 Tbsp lime or lemon juice squeezed
2 Tbsp onion (I use 1/2 small yellow onion)
1/2 red bell pepper
1 stalk of celery
handful of washed cilantro (my added ingredient)
pinch sea salt (my added ingredient)

Put all this is a food processor and process for a few minutes until it’s the consistency you like. Add more salt to taste, or Bragg Amino Acids taste great too. Put in bowl, cover and chill. Serve with wholesome corn chips.

This makes a great mid day snack or a good side dish for the evening meal.

PS. If you do not have a food processer, you can put all this in a mixing bowl and use your potato masher and work it by hand, taste just as good. :-)

Fearfully made

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

Psa 139:14

I will praise thee; for I am FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY made: MARVELLOUS are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

Psa 139:14

When I think of what an awesome God creator we have I shake with fear. He is so wise and so much greater than we are. And yet he chose to put His Holy Spirit in these bodies. Wow !!! Praise the Lord. We are to be good stewards of this body for it is His temple. In the Bible the temple always had special restrictions and requirements on it. Our bodies are no different. We are not to destroy it but to nourish it and keep it clean and purified unto the Lord.

1Co 10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

1Co 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

Lord help us repent for all the garbage we have put in our temples and help us clean them up and sanctify them wholly unto you for your service. In the Name of Jesus we pray all these things, amen.

Blessing to your restored health this year,
