MY OWN TESTIMONY
After giving birth to two wonderful boys and being in an abusive relationship, I found myself having a beginning ulcer. By the time my fourth son had arrived, chronic fatigue and chronic yeast infection had set in. I became depressed and lethargic, often having to return to bed after preparing breakfast for my kids, due to tiredness. I would then sleep till 1-2 pm until my husband came home and would help out with the kids. Before this, I rarely got tired and was full of energy and the joy of the Lord.
13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.
14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
At the time, I was also dealing with the results of being in an abusive relationship: constant demonic attacks, accusations from the enemy about things I had or had not already dealt with before my Father’s throne of grace and mercy. My marriage was falling apart in spite of our best efforts.
My husband was dealing with verbal abuse on his job and frustration, depression and anger towards his family was the results. My husband had developed high blood pressure and passed out on his job one day. He was taken to emergency and came home earlier than usual. Good thing He worked in a hospital. I was not in a constant physical abusive relationship. But the air was constantly thick with anger, disappointment and hopelessness. These things wear you down so much over years of struggling.
We were young and had no clue what to do at the time and the people we went to, were clueless too. Now that I look back, I see that now, but then I thought my husband and I were to blame and we were, but we were mostly uninformed and had married out of God’s will. The struggle was real.
The following are some of the things that I discovered while seeking out solutions for my own deteriorating health.
WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF UNDIGESTED VITAMIN SUPPLEMENTS?
If you are popping vitamin supplements, it is important to know that if the vitamins you are taking, do not digest in the body you are just wasting your time. Often when x-rays are taken, one of the things that is seen is an array of undigested vitamins in the stomach and along the digestive tract. Vitamins that are just sitting along the digestive tract forces the body to produce acids to surround the vitamin in futile hopes of digesting them which in turn wears down on the walls of your stomach and intestines further resulting plaque build-up, ulcers and colon cancers.
WHAT CAN BE DONE TO CLEANSE AND REPAIR INTERNAL DAMAGED TISSUE?
It is therefore necessary to eat foods that help keep the digestive tract clear, usually food that are thick, sticky and puffy in the stomach like hot cereals for breakfast. However, if the damage is already done, it is then necessary to purge the intestines of the thick black plaque build-up on its walls through detoxification. While that is done, it is necessary to build the walls back up. Foods and supplements that contain soluble amino acids, Vitamin C, and Magnesium will help build back up these walls and also help to protect them from further damage by forming a thin nutritious coating around them. Damaged internal tissue can take 3-5 years to completely healed. It is therefore important that when we think of repairing them, we think long-term not short-term.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COLON PURGING AND DETOXING?
The basic difference between purging the colon through laxatives is that taking a laxative makes the body have bowel movements which expels whatever is laying around in the stomach and intestines. This may or may not cleanse the colon of the thick black plague build-up that is stuck on its walls. Detoxing the body not only cleanses the colon but also over time, will get rid of the plaque build-up. Also, it cleanses the whole body from head to toe of most free radicals, viruses, and other foreign objects laying around that have no business in our bodies in the first place. We can get those things from the air we breathe, water we drink, smoking, alcohol, drugs (prescribed as well as unprescribed) and some of the foods we eat, especially animal flesh.
WHAT DOES EXCESSIVE DETOXING DO?
Excessive detoxing can land you up in the hospital and can kill you or have you very sick. After the product you are using has cleansed the body of things you do not need, it can start cleansing your body of the things that you do need. It is therefore, important to limit your detox routine to the prescribed dosage, duration, frequency and do not combine detoxification methods.
I know one woman that had a foot detox, then a few days later a friend told her about a bath detox so, she decided to try that too. Her body became weak, she had to end up calling 911 and had to stay in the hospital a few days while being fed intravenously so she could regain her strength. Do not play with detox products, those things are serious. Please consult your physician before putting any of these health strategies into practice.
*** A word to the wise is sufficient (old proverb).
A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE HELPS TO ENSURE A HEALTHY BODY
We are living on a planet that is alive and alive with all sorts of busy microscopic creatures that live in and on things, we encounter from day to day. Having a healthy lifestyle, exercise and cleansing routines, helps keep us fortified against the onslaught of those that impact our bodies in a negative way. It is important to note, that not all of them are bad and some of them can be good in certain quantities but when our bodies are not able to expel them after they have done their duty, that is when the build-up occurs and we find ourselves feeling tired and weighed down and unable to cope with the stresses of life. Our bodies are being defeated on the inside and outside.
The body can also deposit these un-expelled garbage in heaps along the way resulting in cysts, polyps and tumors. Stress can cause the body to produce toxins that if not expelled by our body, have a very negative result on our health.
SO, WHAT DID I DO TO RECUPERATE?
First of all it was not easy. Like I said repairing the body after it had been damaged internally is a long-term process, even though we may see results over a short period of time. The work has began but it is not complete.
While attending a business meeting that was sponsored by one of the Churches in Brooklyn, NY, I met a sister that I later found out grew up in my neighborhood in Trinidad, Caribbean. She was an Independent Distributor for a company that sold health products from South Africa called Cape Aloe Ferox, ferox because it contained iron. It had been used by the Zulu and other tribes for over 5000 years. She had been introduced to these products when she was scheduled to have a grapefruit sized fibroid removed. So, she decided to use these products instead and her tumor was reduced, resulting in the surgery no longer being necessary. I explained to her that my husband and I were becoming sickly and were asking God what to do. So she suggested that we both try using these products. She told me to conduct further research on the benefits of Aloe Vera on the body which I did. She also showed me the results of research that was conducted by a well-known beauty product company on the benefits of Cape Aloe Ferox. I later found other research that was conducted by scientists from Japan on this particular tree.
One of the things that the Lord did tell us while seeking Him concerning our health, is to stop eating meat. We struggled with this, especially where fried chicken and Chinese food was concerned but after detoxing, a vegetarian diet became much more easier to do. Even with just limiting our meat intake, we began to feel much better and the chronic yeast infection began to clear up. They were completely gone after I had detox for awhile.
We were warned about detoxing and to use it only in the manner prescribed, once or maybe twice a year.
The package we were introduced to was for a 3 month program.
The products we used are:
- Cape Aloe Ferox Juice – it contains soluble amino acids, iron, and vitamin c which was added as a preservative, to build the body up and can be used daily. We used 2-3 tablespoons of this 3 times a day: morning, noon and evening.
- Cape Aloe Ferox Detoxing Crystals – to detox and cleanse the body. We used 3 crystals 3 times a day. This is extremely bitter and we were told to place it at the tip of our tongue, where there is no bitterness taste buds and swallow very fast with a glass of water. We soon learned to use honey after taking them and brush our teeth right after. The bitterness is real. We also put it in peanut butter for our children to be able to handle it. They did not take too much of this. They were in better health than we were and did not need too much. It made one of my sons go too often to the bathroom and we soon had to stop giving it to them, altogether. These crystals are now available in an enclosed soluble capsules, for those who cannot tolerate the bitterness or don’t want to deal with that. *** Since I had a beginning ulcer, I was warned never to take this without first taking the cape aloe ferox juice that first coated my stomach. I did so and did not experience any problems.
- Arthro-Detox Pills – to detox and build up the marrow in the bones. We used this once a day, 3 hours after using the juice and bitter crystals, so that they had time to do their work, otherwise they would be futile.
- Cape Aloe Ferox Powder – for allergy prevention. We sniffed this once a day. It was very uncomfortable. I saw this being used in drinks instead of sniffed.
- Cape Aloe Ferox Tea – it has a relaxing affect and acts as a gentle laxative that can be used daily. We enjoyed this whenever we liked and added cinnamon and honey. It is important to note that this is bitter when first brewed and needs to sit for at least an hour so that the bitterness can evaporate.
- Cape Aloe Ferox Gel Body Cream – for protecting, healing and moisturizing the skin. This gel gave us a beautiful glow and added a tanned look to our skin, even throughout winter.
WHAT WERE THE RESULT?
The first morning that I took the Cape Aloe Ferox Juice, I did not need to return to bed. My husband returned home, to find me up and around. We were both joyfully surprised and gave thanks to God. I was thinking that I may relapse but I have not, up to this day. This was way back in 2005.
After just one and a half months (1 1/2) on this routine, my husband and I were amazingly surprised. We felt like if we had been granted a brand new body by the Lord and felt like we were walking on air. It happened on the same day and we both ran home to tell each other about it.
My husband has been tested for high blood pressure and the results were negative.
*** I also wanted to note that these products were being sold by a Christian company and a lot of prayer was sown into it. All Glory to our King Yeshua HaMashiach.
We were gleefully laughing and thanking God and my cousin for bringing this product our way. Thank you my Lord Yeshua. Thank you so very much.
We continued to use the products for the recommended 3 months and then we limited it to just the juice and tea, which could be used daily.
I am now an Independent Distributor, also for this product, so if you would like to try it, just let me know. I highly recommend it. You can use the contact form on this site.
You can also purchase these products on amazon.com, here.
I must also add that after my husband lost his job in 2006, we had to stop using these products for awhile. My ulceric stomach started acting up again and I had to check into the emergency room at least twice, once in 2006 and again in early 2007. As soon as we could afford it, I returned to my routine. After all these years my stomach is completely healed. I can eat and drink whatever I want now: chocolate, orange juice, fries, etc. all the things I enjoyed but was told not to eat.
