I have been around sick conjested people for last 2 weeks and yesterday started to feel like i might have caught something.So I got out my tumeric/haldi/curcumin and raw honey- 2 tsps of each and mixed togther throughly.Honey as well as tumeric is an anti biotic.Honey is mentioned in the Quran in a chapter called The Bees.I my book honey is a superfood.

This morning I ate the rest of it with a pinch of black pepper , this helps the curcimin in the tumeric absorb better but blakc people is a stimulant , so i dont take before bed, this morning I also had apple cidar vinegar and water to wash it down, alhmdulilah, it a powerful antibiotic, its cheap , its natural and it has no side effects.

DAFFODILS AND DRAGONS- St Davids Day

If you are wondering why Google has gone all daffodils and dragons, today is St David Day.

st david google.jpg

I am not a sufi, contrary to common belief, nor do I have a shrine to St David in my front room but as we share the same name sake David/ Dawoud, I thought he was worth researching and I am so glad I took some time to research this noble man.
Saint David (Welsh: Dewi Sant, Latin: Davidus; c. 500 – c. 589).
He was alive at the same time of Prophet Muhamad , (salah la alahi wa salem) who was born 570 CE.

st david
It is said he is descended from the Prophet Dawoud(alaihi wa salem).
He founded monasteries of monks that never drank beer let alone hard liquor.
He visited Jerusalem and they had no Easy Jet in those days.
When you study his lineage you see where his dusky good looks and piety come from, maashallah.
He was a Welsh bishop of Mynyw (now St David’s) during the 6th century; he was later regarded as a saint. He is the patron saint of Wales. David was a native of Wales, and a relatively large amount of information is known about his life. David was reputedly born on a cliff top near Capel Non (Non’s chapel) on the South-West Wales coast during a fierce storm. Both his parents were descended from Welsh royalty. He was the son of Sandde, Prince of Powys, and Non, daughter of a chieftain of Menevia (now the little cathedral town of St David’s).

WHITE FLOUR WE ARE TAKING YOU DOWN INSHA’ALLAH

WHITE FLOUR WE ARE TAKING YOU DOWN INSHA’ALLAH…Over 1400 years ago the prophet Muhammad salah la alaihi wa salem knew that white flour was bad, over 100 years ago American scientists knew it was bad and some of us DUMB UMMs still think it is better than whole meal flour, lets break it down again…
Wheat has a husk which is given to animals to eat.
Inside is the wheat kernel that is covered in edible fibre, this fibre is not only good for digestion but good for cleaning plaque in arteries, blocked arteries cause heart attacks!

You have been warned!

wheat kernel

To make white flour this bran  is removed and sold in health shops to sensible people who add fibre to their diet and we are left with the wheat germ and starch, the wheat germ contains essential oils ,vitamin and minerals, essential for brain development…so we are starting to see how  a lack of these minerals in the diet, makes people mentally  deficient without them even knowing why, this wheat germ is removed and we are left with the starch which is only good for energy and it is then bleached using nitroxide and peroxide chemicals to make it white. They then add back into it 14 artificial vitamins and minerals after that had previously removed 22 natural ones.

arab white bread
The reason I get soooooo vexed about this stuff and Muslims, is we were already on this tip over 20 years ago outside of Islam .Ignorant born Muslims and ignorant reverts who choose to ignore this information, which was common knowledge, because like the fat cows we are we think because white flour is halal we can keep on stuffing our faces with it…its halal yes but it’s not tayyib, it lawful but it’s not good according to Sunnah of prophet Muhammad salah la alaihi wa salem.

VITILIGO AND NUTRITION

as salaam alaikum,
According to ibn Qayyim Al Jawziyyah (RA), in his book, “the medicine of the prophet,” Salah the alaihi wa Salem, the consumption of fish and milk can cause the vitiligo, this is in the section on general principle, on page 283 The Translation of johnstones of Penelope. , text Islamic society publications

Selon Ibn Qayyim Al Jawziyyah ( ra ) , dans son livre , “La médecine du Prophète , « salah la alayhi wa salem , la consommation de poisson et le lait peut provoquer le vitiligo , cela est dans la section principe général , à la page 283 de la traduction des Johnstones de Pénélope. , texte islamique société publications

vitiligo2

Maybe this is something that people with less melanin , skin pigment , can tolerate, or it affects all of our digestions but the white patches are not so noticeable on whiter skin, I dont know, only God knows

Peut-être que ceci est quelque chose que les gens avec moins de mélanine,pigment de la peau, peuvent tolérer, ou qu’elle affecte l’ensemble de nosdigestions mais les taches blanches sont pas si sensible sur la peau plus blanche, je ne sais pas, Dieu seul le sait

BONES…HELP THEM STAY STRONG

 

This post is about technique not about nutrients. It’s an suggestion for a practical way to use herbs thats are great for strengthening bones from the inside out.

This is an area that is new to me  and insha’allah I’ll share as I learn. Inspired by the plants on my window ledge and beginning to research parsley and its ability o tines bones from within I thought how can I make this amazing herb alhmdulilah(praise the Creator), part of my diet?

SMOOTHIES!!! or Soups.

Smoothies are better because everything is  RAW, all the vitamin and minerals stay intact

SOME VITAMINS ARE DESTROYED BY COOKING

http://www.beyondveg.com/tu-j-l/raw-cooked/raw-cooked-2f.shtml

SOME FRUITS AND VEGGIES G.I.  BECOME HIGHER DUE TO COOKING

http://www.livestrong.com/article/430497-why-does-the-cooking-method-change-the-glycemic-index/

You can buy fresh herbs quite cheaply in Arabic and Asian areas in large cities because they are so much a part of the diet.

£1 for 2 bunches of parsley , coriander/dunyia , mint, fenugreek/ methi or dill.

If you are a single person or small family sometimes herbs get wasted or end up in the recycling.

Some times washing and chopping herbs every day is a bit off putting but they have to be part of our daily diet.

So what to do?

Here’s an idea

Wash , drain and dry herbs, overnight preferably

You will need small sandwich bags, ribbon and scissors

Roughly chop herbs

parsley bag 1 (1)

Place a handful in bag, in bag should be added to other food items to make enough for 2 smoothies

parsley bag 1 (2)

Tie up bags with colour coded ribbon , P=pink P= parsley. D=dark blue D=danyia/coriander, you’ll work it out

parsley bag 1 (7)

Place bags inside another big place and place in freezer be mindful of what you have in there and use up ASAP and replace

Frozen herbs can be added to smoothies OR chopped more in frozen state and added last minutes to soups…enjoy

WHOLEFOOD – THE HUMBLE POTATO

WHOLE FOOD

I am a massive fan of wholefood in the sense of using as much of the food as possible. The way the Creator made most if not all food produce, is that all parts can be used, not necessariy for eating but for far more than we in our urban bubbles are aware of .

For example,leaving the skin on a potato versus peeling, it will retain some of the indigestible fiber and lower the impact of the potato starch on blood glucose levels.

Potato Fat Content.

If you are going to choose the Potato Diet, as your chosen way of trying to lose weight.
You will want to know how much Fat their is in a Potato. A medium sized Baked Potato has a trace, 0.2 grams of Fat, that is obviously without any dressing. When people are using the Potato Diet to try an shed a couple of pounds, it’s always the Baked Potato Filling, that they struggle with.

It wouldn’t be worth eating a Baked Potato which has a trace of Fat, only to fill it with Cheese or another high fat filling, that would be 1 step forward, and 2 back.

Why not try a couple of these Low Fat Baked Potato Fillings, so that you keep your Potato Fat Content as low as possible.

JACKET POTATO

Low Fat Sour Cream, instead of Butter.
Low Fat Cottage Cheese, instead of Regular Cheddar Cheese.
You can also try Low Fat Cheese, but in the past, i have always found it a little dry.

So just remember, that the Potato Fat Content is basically nothing, it’s always the topping or filling that is adding Fat to your meal.

Regardless of cooking method, some dietary carbohydrates, such as potatoes and refined grains, have a higher GI score than others. Choose whole grains, such as brown rice and whole-grain wheat bread, when possible, to control postprandial blood sugar levels. Furthermore, the GI of any food is based on your body’s ability to digest and absorb carbohydrates. The exact scores and numbers vary among healthy subjects, people with diabetes and people with diabetes taking insulin. Talk to your dietitian if you need help planning meals for a diabetic diet.

WOMB HEALTH-WOMB-MAN MATTERS

WOMB HEALTH

The womb- AL RAHIM, sounds like raheem, meaning mercy, is mentioned in the first verse of chapter 4 of the Quran called “an-nisa” the women.

“O mankind, fear your Lord, who created you from one soul and created from it its mate and dispersed from both of them many men and women. And fear Allah , through whom you ask one another, and the wombs. Indeed Allah is ever, over you, an Observer.”

“O mankind! Have Taqwa of your Lord, Who created you from a single person, and from him He created his mate, and from them both He created many men and women, and have Taqwa of Allah through Whom you demand your mutual (rights), and revere the wombs. Surely, Allah is always watching over you.”

Ibn kathir(ra) is one of the classical Islamic great scholars but his tafsir of this verse it a little bit lacking and not surprising because a man ,although conceived in a womb,  does not possess a womb and all that goes with it. “And revere the womb by not cutting the relations of the womb, but keep and honor them, as Ibn `Abbas, `Ikrimah, Mujahid, Al-Hasan, Ad-Dahhak, Ar-Rabi`, and others have stated.

It is a great shame that over  the years too many Muslims have neglected the body and focus their Islam on the heart and the head, the intellectual and the spiritual, forgetting the body is the vehicle  that facilitates the actions of ibada/worship and pleasure.

Inspired, maasha’Allah (as God would have it be) many many moons ago by Queen Efua, an African American naturopath and healer, we are going to begin to start taking our womb health more seriously, insha’Allah (God willing)

Degeneration of health

STAGE 1

Prolapse rectum/colon causes prolapse womb, rectocele prolapse which can cause lower back pain.it can also cause 3-5 days menses and vaginal itching.

Attributing factors are:

  • Bowel movement less than 2-3 per day
  • Diet high in diary and starches
  • Diet containing flesh foods; white meat, chicken and fish.
  • Night time, eating after sunset
  • Lack of exercise

STAGE 2

Cysts and fibroid tumors, caesarian section (but not due to size of baby) , difficult birthing, lack of sexual orgasm due to poor circulation/blockages, menses 5-8 days OR acure menses 8days to 2 weeks.

Attributing factors are:

  • Flesh foods in diet ,red meat, beef , lamb, pork
  • Drugs, orthodox(pharmaceutical) and unorthodox (marijuana, crack, ecstasy, poppers)
  • Continued neglect of exercise
  • Dairy, starchy refined carbohydrates, sugar
  • Fried foods
  • One bowel movement a day, small, hard stools
  • Kidney stones

STAGE 3

Tumors, hysterectomy, removal of womb/uterus, sterility, lack of enjoyment for sexual activity, suppressed emotions, discomfort with femininity.

Attributing factors are:

  • Continual negligence of physical condition
  • Possible one bowel movement a day or a few times a week, producing hard small flaky stools.

But all is not lost and there is always time for us to begin to heal ourselves, providing we put our trust in the Creator and the natural resources the Creator has provided for us.

Parsley….Anti-inflammation Smoothie

Anti-inflammatory smoothie

I have been in so much pain these winter months and we are still not out of the woods, my neighbor suggested that I have bath in the morning rather than at night, to relax my muscles and thus set me up for the rest of the day’s activities
Today is the 2nd time I’m trying this and this time, advice by my mother ,who is a qualified aromatherapist, I took my oil in the bath room ; camphor, eucalyptus, frankincense and black pepper, ginger and lavender.
Oils dropped into hot bath water and left for 30 minutes to let the bath water cool and warm the actual metal enamel of the bath and let the oils infuse the air.

parsely
I then thought I should get the plants of the window a bit of water
I pondered and reflected, parsley and chives, such tough plants maashallah, I don’t water them regularly, they’re out in the sometimes freezing weather and still they’re vibrant and green
Parsley, I ponder, maybe there is something in parsley that will toughen me up to this cold British weather because my body is telling me that something is wrong the pain I am in is not helps by flax seed oil, which I take regularly
Without thinking it got some fresh parsley out of the fridge and chopped with scissor into my already blended smoothie full of anti- inflammatory but missing on vital ingredient parley
Ant inflammatory winter smoothie
• 1 large ripe, banana
• 2 slices of fresh pineapple including kore
• 3 tsp powdered cinnamon
• 2 level spoon spiralina
• 4-5cme piece fresh ginger
• 4-5cm piece of fresh haldi turmeric curcumin
• 21 stems of fresh parsley
• Blender topped up with coconut water

The banana, pineapple and cinnamon give it a sweetness that balances the green taste and it’s actually quite nice

Inshallah I will do this every time I make a smoothie, especially after reading the health benefits fresh parsley contain, alhmdulilah praise the creator.
Parsley is rich in many vital vitamins, including Vitamin C, B 12, K and A. This means parsley keeps your immune system strong, tones your bones and heals the nervous system, too. It helps flush out excess fluid from the body, thus supporting kidney function.

HEALTH BENFITS FROM CARE2.COM

Parsley is a pretty little Mediterranean herb that lends a sprinkling of color to your plate. But let’s not think of it as just a garnish—after all, parsley has been around for more than 2000 years, and boasts some time-tested benefits that you should know about.
• Parsley is rich in many vital vitamins, including Vitamin C, B 12, K and A. This means parsley keeps your immune system strong, tones your bones and heals the nervous system, too.
• It helps flush out excess fluid from the body, thus supporting kidney function. However, the herb contains oxalates, which can cause problems for those with existing kidney and gall bladder problems.
• Regular use of parsley can help control your blood pressure. The folic acid in this herb is like a tonic for your heart.
• Parsley essential oil, when massaged into the scalp, may reduce hair loss.
• Use parsley daily, and you’ll feel relief from joint pain. That’s because the herb has anti-inflammatory properties.
• Parsley tea relaxes stiff muscles and encourages digestion.
• Studies indicate that parsley—especially its essential oil—may have a role in inhibiting cancerous tumors. In fact, scientists have billed it a ‘chemoprotective’ food.
