Effects of Capsaicin in Hot Chili Peppers on Type 1 Diabetes
Cure Disease in Mice"
was the headline on the front cover of the National Post
newspaper on Dec.15.06. It's slowly becoming more and more well known
that one of the major components to healing/curing any kind of disease
simply NUTRITION from fruits and vegetables, and that's more or less
what these scientists discovered. The diabetic mice were injected

Virtually overnight the diabetes was gone and the mice were
Capsaicin is a potent inhibitor
of "substance P", a neuropeptide associated with inflammatory processes.
Pancreas problems and insulin
reistance in diabetics is partly due to the inflammation of
insulin-producing islet cells. Until now, mainstream science
believed that Type 1 diabetes was the result of the body's immune
system turning against itself, but it now appears as though
the nervous system plays a major part in the disease.

Wanna Try It?
people might want to give this a try for themselves
and the only problem there might be is that chili peppers can
be difficult to eat due to the hotness. And how many peppers would be
required? It turns out there is a much simpler way of putting this to
practice, although the hot issue still remains. How about a pure
organic chili extract that's made using a proprietary
extraction process that results in a highly concentrated
containing the power of the entire plant, even beyond the concentration
of essential oils? "The hotter
the chili the more capsaicin." The first time I tried this
wasn't expecting it be too hot because it certainly didn't smell
spicy, but boy was I fooled! It was probably the equivelent of two
drops and my eyes were watering, nose was running, face
sweating, and not to even mention what was happening in my mouth! I
still use it VERY
sparingly in foods, and even in drink mixtures, but never again will it
be taken straight.

Adding and Subtracting
this chili extract is going to be used, it should be done in
combination with a proper nutritious diet (organic fruits and
vegetables). Simply taking the chili by itself without changing one's
diet is the equivilent of taking a pharmaceutical drug.. a quick
temporary fix that won't last. "He that takes medicine and neglects
diet, wastes the skill of the physician." - Chinese Proverb. If we
don't remove the negative
lifestyle choices that are contributing to our health problems, that
problem will always remain or return. What you
include in your diet is
just as important as what you exclude from it. Sugars and
grains are supposedly a major contributor to diabetes. Diabetes
can, and has
been reversed completely by people who were willing to make the
necessary lifestyle changes. "Raw

It can't be recommended highly enough that a WHOLE FOOD health
supplement, such as FrequenSea,
be taken on a daily basis. The more help (nutrients) we give the body,
the faster it can heal itself.
Changing Your Mind
removal of negative emotions and stress is absolutely key in
healing as well. Some scientists and researchers are
85-95% of all diseases are the result of "stress". In other
words, false negative beliefs, perceptions, attitudes, and opinions. If
something isn't relevant and beneficial to oneself and all others
exception, how can it be truth? If something doesn't promote peace (of
mind), how can it be truth? Of course you'll have to work at your own
pace, but it will be necessary to let go of negative perceptions and
to just let things BE AS THEY ARE. It's been mentioned several times
already on this site that "without the mind interfering, everything
just IS." To put it another way, Life/Universe/Nature/Existence is
absolutely perfect and
doesn't need the opinions of the human ego to tell it that it is or
isn't. See how this viewpoint promotes peace of mind? Health
is largely a state of mind. Reverse the dis-ease by being
at ease. Everything just IS.
AM happy, healthy, complete, and at
peace." Take at least 10 minutes a day, every day, to sit and repeat
this affirmation, and really FEEL it within your being. Just remember,
whatever you continuously put your focus on, you recieve more of. This
is the placebo effect and the power of changing the subconscious mind's
programming. Eventually, changing one's habits and ways of thinking
becomes a normal and natural part of life once we realize that the
world doesn't necessarily work the way we think it does, and that the
opinions perpetuated by the mind are not "the final truth". "People
seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of
character." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
