Updated instructions on making the Hawthorn leaf decoction for Ebola and other conditions (Oct 20, 2014)
These instructions are being updated because several variations of the original method of making the hawthorn extract have been tried and some improvements have been made in the past two months.
First you need to find a source of hawthorn leaves. I found a source of leaves and flowers at herbco.com 800-500-6148. One pound of a blend of leaves and flowers c/s (cut and sifted) was purchased for $9.00 plus shipping charges. Note: I noticed today they were sold out of the leaves and flowers. Try Google or any search engine for "hawthorn leaves" to locate other sources.
While the fruit is the most widely used part of the Hawthorn bush, I decided to use the leaves and flowers. After reading the instructions given to Marie Julie Jahenny by the Blessed Mother on Aug 5, 1880, on how to prepare the Hawthorn remedy, I am left with a few unanswered questions, they are -
1. What quantity of Hawthorn leaves should be added to what quantity of water? Should the leaves be whole or cut? Should it be a teaspoonful of leaves per cup of water or a tablespoon of leaves per cup or some other measurement?
2. After adding the Hawthorn leaves to the boiling water, should the mixture continue to A. be boiled for the next 14 minutes, B. be simmered for 14 minutes, or should the C. the heat be shut off while leaving the lid on for 14 minutes before straining and drinking the remedy?
3. Will the method vary depending on the heat source - gas stove, electrical or wood stove?
My first attempts at making the Hawthorn leaf decoction
Decoction: Decoctions are usually made by boiling a herb or food from 5 to 20 minutes. The temperature can reach 212 degrees fahrenheit equals 100 degrees Celsius. In my first attempt, I placed a full cup of water into a pan and brought it to a boil. Then I added one heaping tablespoon of the dried hawthorn leaves and flowers (c/s) into the boiling water. I stirred it and boiled it for one minute, then reduced the heat and placed a cover over the pot and simmered it for 14 minutes. I did not want to cook it on high heat for the 14 minutes as excess heat could reduce the medicinal value of some of the ingredients in the remedy. I removed the pot from the stove and left the cover on to cool it for about 10 minutes. I then strained the mixture to remove the cooked leaves and flowers. The color of the decoction was brown although partially cloudy with sediment from the cooked leaves. It was mild in flavor.
Infusion: The infusion method is usually used to make a tea. Infusion temperatures may start at the boiling temperature of water but quickly drop to below 160 degrees F and down further to 120 degrees F which is basically warm water. In another experiment I placed the hawthorn leaves in a cup of boiling water, turned off the heat, and let it alone for 10 or 15 minutes. I tried this and found that the resulting tea was lukewarm, light in color and had little flavor, indicating that much of the medicinal ingredients were still inside the leaves and flowers. I concluded that an infusion would not make a good remedy. After discussing both methods with a trained Herbalist, she stated that it would take a higher temperature of the leaves in the water to draw out the medicinal properties of the hawthorn leaf. She suggested combining the Decoction and Infusion methods.
My latest method of making a Hawthorn decoction doubles the herb and water used and simmers the mixture rather than boiling or steeping it
The Hawthorn extract I currently make is based on the following method: I use a 1.5 qt (1 and a half quart) stainless steel pot with a lid. I place two cups of water plus 1/4 cup of water into the pot and bring it to a rolling boil. I then add 2 heaping tablespoons of the cut hawthorn leaves and flowers to the boiling water and stir it while shutting off the heat for one minute. I then place the pot with the lid on the smallest burner on the stove with the lowest possible setting. I set the timer for 14 minutes. [You may add some Hawthorn berries to the mixture if you want, but this is not necessary.] At the 3 or 4 minute interval, I lift the lid to check on what it is doing. It should be simmering, not bubbling at a full boil.
By simmering, I mean there should be some churning motion to part (not all) of the hawthorn leaves and water in the pot. Most of the herb and water mixture should be motionless or just slightly moving. The temperature of the simmering mixture can be as low as 160 degrees F but less than the boiling temperature of the mixture. The ideal range is more than 160 degrees F but less than 190 degrees F. The resulting decoction I made was a deep golden brown color that looked like a clear maple syrup. The liquid also had a slight thickness (viscosity) and very smooth taste. Its physical effects are noticeable as a diuretic, and in promoting restful sleep. [Do not add any honey, sugar or other herbs to this remedy. Use it by itself.]
If you use an electric or wood stove, you will need to move or adjust the temperature to simmer (not boil) the mixture for the 14 minutes needed to make the remedy.
After 14 minutes the resulting decoction is strained and divided into two servings. If only one person is using the remedy, one cup is immediately consumed and the other is set aside or refrigerated for later use. In using the remedy for one Ebola patient, the entire day's remedy can be made at one time using 3 and 1/2 cups of water with 3 heaping tablespoons of the cut leaves and flowers. The resulting extract is divided into 3 portions that are taken about 5 hours apart. Note that this remedy must be taken early in the disease process or it may not work.
What about using Hawthorn extracts and capsules?
Why not take hawthorn berry capsules? The use of capsules is an experimental possibility and could be considered if the capsules primarily contain extracts of the leaves and flowers. However, not knowing the details of how the product is made leaves open questions about its efficacy. An experimental dose for an adult would be 3 capsules 3 times a day. Personally, I prefer making my own extract on the kitchen stove. At least you know what you got.
[I have found that one cup of this Hawthorn decoction taken before bedtime helps promote longer, deeper, and more restful sleep.]
I might add at this juncture that the use of the Hawthorn leaf decoction for treating Ebola is an act of faith as there is no scientific research (yet) that would support its use for treating Ebola. [My own theory is that the Hawthorn leaf decoction increases the availability of oxygen to the heart, and other body organs, and tissues.]
October 7. 2014. The latest issue of the Journal of Immunity covers the rapidly emerging Ebola epidemic, how the virus is transmitted by direct touch or through the air, its symptoms, and treatment options, and an 1880 prophecy from a French mystic who received a message about this disease from the Virgin Mary nearly a century before scientists discovered it. The Virgin Mary recommended a hawthorne leaf decoction as a home remedy to stop the progression of the disease. The African Journal of Traditional, Complementary and Alternative Medicine has an article about a man who achieved a sustained seroconversion for HIV as a result of using black seed powder as a monotherapy. Two test cases are now underway- one in Wisconsin and one in Illinois in an attempt to duplicate these results - one using black seed powder and one using black seed oil. Read more here
Oct 9, 2014 : Email to me
Hello, I just happened upon your website. I live in Houston,Texas. As you probably already know,ebola is in Dallas, TX. I have the remedies, but I had a question. All of the symptoms do pretty much match for the plague, Marie Julie-Jahenny spoke about. I don't understand what it means that it will attack the word, the heart and spirit. I would sort of guess, the heart would be affected, but what does she mean when the word is affected? Also, how can your spirit be affected? Please email soon. I eagerly await,more information Thank you and God bless you, Selena McPhail
Reply from Conrad LeBeau <email@example.com> 12:02 PM (1 minute ago) to Therese Selena,
The original quote was in French, and while I am a descendent of French ancestry, I did not do the translation. Marie Julie Jahenny died in 1941 and before the Ebola virus was discovered. If she were alive, she wouid be the one best qualified to answer your questions. However, prophetic revelations are not without merit because some details seem out of place or are not understood.
My impression of those words is this - the heart is damaged first and heart failure is a primary cause of death from Ebola - (Hawthorn helps protect the heart). The disease attacks the "spirit" by a loss of "hope" that recovery is possible. [spirit refers to state of mind, not the soul] It then attacks the "word" by undermining "faith" in the "Word of God."
One bit of information I did not mention but is significant is the date of the revelation which was August 5th, 1880. One of the visionaries at Medjugorje recently asked the Virgin Mary on what date she was born. She replied it was August 5th. By the way, the visionary asked this question on August 5th. I believe that the remedy of Hawthorn decoction was a gift from the Mother of Jesus to a future generation that would suffer the plague of this disease.
The last secrets of Medjugorje have to due with end time chastisements that can be alleviated but not entirely eliminated with prayer and fasting. As I stated in my article, the use of Hawthorn decoction is based on faith, not science, at least, until some future scientist decides to test this remedy as an early treatment for Ebola. Read the prophetic revelation carefully. The Hawthorn remedy must be given within the first few days when symptoms appear, or it may be too late to stop progression of the disease. Conrad.
September 29th, 2014. New Developments in the case of the FDA (U.S. Government) vs. Conrad LeBeau (Case No 10-CR-00253), U.S. Attorney Gordon Giampietro wrote a letter today to United States District Judge Charles Clevert requesting a decision in this case. Under Federal Court rules, U.S. Judge Charles Clevert is to review Magistrate Callahan's decisions and write his own opinion before it can be appealed to the 7th Circuit of Appeals in Chicago. It has now been19 months since the last legal briefs have been filed and still there is no letter indicating when a decision may be finalized. U.S. Attorney Gordon Giampietro letter is filed as Doc 104.
The letter Doc 104 filed today is welcome news as it now places the U.S. Government in agreement with me in my earlier request (Doc 103) filed in April, 2014, to Judge Charles Clevert requesting the status of his review.
In a nutshell, I am asking the Federal Courts to narrow the definition of what is classified as a drug to its original meaning in the FDC Act of 1906 which would exclude food and food-based dietary supplements (defined in DSHEA) from the drug definition based on speech about its intended use to prevent or mitigate disease. It would limit the definition to narcotics and the other category specified in the FDC Act of 1906. If successful, my appeal would end the FDA policy of dual classification where the FDA arbitrarily classifies a substance as both a food and a drug at the same time based solely on words or speech.
In FDA mind-speak, it is words on labels about the intended use of a food or nutritional supplement to prevent illness that the FDA claims is criminal behavior because the words magically transform (through legal fiction) a food into an unapproved new drug, However, reality is not that words are creating drugs, but rather that the FDA is simply censoring speech. FDA's arbitrary branding of a food as a drug is not based on the composition of a food or a food-based nutritional supplement, but rather on how words are used to describe its intended uses.
Current FDA enforcement of the FDC ACT tramples on the First Amendment, the 9th amendment right to Freedom of Choice in Medicine, and intrudes on rights reserved to the States under the 10th amendment by assuming powers not enumerated in Article 1, Section 8 of the United States Constitution. FDA even treats as criminal behavior a reference to a scientific article published at the United States National Library of Medicine. It only takes one FDA employee to disagree with a scientific article, and how it is distributed along with a food or nutritional supplement, to create an alleged violation of the FDC Act.
This censorship of speech and the press by some employees of the FDA unabashedly violates the First Amendment rights of all Americans and does irreparable harm by depriving millions of people of life saving scientific research, opinion and information. You can read the rest of my legal arguments in the Forum link in the right column. Go to #18 for the original brief and replies.
Next monday - the latest issue of the Journal of Immunity will be posted online. This issue focuses on new developments in growing Ebola epidemic, and new case results on the effects of black seed powder or oil in the treatment of HIV. An update on Ebola planned for today has been delayed until next monday.
Did you know that today, September 29, each year, is a feast day in the Catholic church to celebrate the work and contributions of three archangels - Saint Gabriel, Saint Raphael and Saint Michael?
LIPITOR can cause serious side effects
by Conrad LeBeau
Within the past year, I have spoken with two local senior citizens, Don W. and Earl D, (both over 80 y.o.) who live in southeastern Wisconsin, and took the cholesterol lowering drug, Lipitor, and who have reported as a side effect muscle wasting and weakness.
Lipitor (atorvastatin calcium) is a statin drug used by millions of people to lower the bad LDL cholesterol and increase the good HDL cholesterol. Drugs.com reports about 2% of the people have side effects. However, the side effects of Lipitor and most prescription drugs are vastly under-reported as doctors rarely discuss adverse effects with their patients. Patients who develop new symptoms are left to guess whether or not this drug or that drug is the cause and whether the symptoms indicate that some new health problem is emerging. It is a fact that one drug alone can have dozens of side effects. It is not uncommon for some drugs to have 50 or more side effects. Adverse effects can occur immediately or after several months or years.
A long list of the many side effects that may be caused by Lipitor are available from drugs.com. Read the adverse effects and the rest of the article here. [This includes a list of 12 foods and supplements that will improve your heart and circulatory health.]
An HIV patient in Milwaukee began using Black Seed powder (Cumin) on Aug 9th, 2014, in an attempt to duplicate an apparent "cure of HIV/AIDS" published in the African Journal of Traditional, Complementary and Alternative Medicine in 2013.
The article was posted on this website on 8/3/14 (See link below).
Milwaukee, WI - On August 9th, 2014, Patient R, a caucasian male began taking 2 capsules of Black Seed powder with meals three times a day. The local experiment is based on a case study of 4 years duration done in Nigeria. The first 6 months of the Nigerian study involved the use on Nigella Sativa (Black Seed) as a monotherapy for HIV. Local testing in Milwaukee and emails from the author, Dr Onifade, led to the initial observation that about 3000 mg of black cumin powder was consumed daily in the Nigerian test case. The Nigerian patient had restoration of normal CD4 helper cell counts and a consistent non-detectable hiv viral load for more than 2 years after the treatment was discontinued. Equally surprising was a consistent non-detectable antibody test for HIV that began in the 6th month of treatment. At that time, the treatment was discontinued and two years hence, the HIV virus remains non-detectable and the patient has a fully restored CD4 cell count.
The difference between the Nigerian case and the current ongoing Milwaukee test case is that no honey was added to the Black Cumin powder and the dose was divided into 3 portions taken with meals 3 times a day. Like the Nigerian case, no pharmaceutical anti-virals for HIV are being used while the Black Seed powder study is underway. The baseline CD4 count and PCR viral load test was taken in July, 3 weeks before starting the Black Seed protocol - Patient R's baseline labs are an absolute CD4 count of 262 and an HIV viral load of 10,571.
The first test results after using the Black Cumin (in capsule form) will occur sometime next month in October (about 60 day after starting the herbal remedy), and the results will be published on this website.
Note: This local experiment is possible because patient R's doctor took him off all HIV antiviral drugs due to adverse side effects; the doctor is currently monitoring his viral load and immune status every 3 months while he is on this "drug holiday." Patient R plans to inform his doctor at their next meeting in October on his use of Black Cumin at the same time blood is drawn for new labs tests. Anyone reading this report who has questions or wants more specific details on what patient R is doing can email me. Write "Black Seed" in the subject line.
from the archives of the Alliance for Human Research Protection - America's Healthcare Crisis--7 Scientists Quit Cancer Prevention Research Institute of Texas
The Associated Press reports that "at least seven scientists resigned in protest from an embattled Cancer Prevention Research Institute in Texas (CPRIT) that was backed by Governor Rick Perry and Lance Armstrong. The scientists, among them Nobel laureates, Dr. Phillip Sharp, and CPRIT's chief scientific officer, Dr. Alfred Gilman who resigned in protest after the institute approved a $20 million grant for an incubator project at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston without scientific review of the merit of the project.
Dr. Gilman told colleagues in e-mails that he was trying to prevent misuse of taxpayer dollars and funding decisions based on political considerations. The scientists object to the politically driven agenda that puts commercial interest before science. CPRIT has received $3 billion in taxpayer money. Dr. Brian Dynlacht, another scientist who is leaving, warned that the agency was headed down a path of systematic abuses. It is worth rmembering that Gov. Perry has shown his predilection for commercially influenced policies.
Gov. Perry had instituted with lightening speed, a mandatory HPV vaccination policy that would have forced school girls to expose their young innocent bodies to Merck's controversial vaccine. It was public uproar about the commercial ties that underpinned the mandatory policy that led the legislature to overturn it.
As we have often decried in our various Infomails, the scientific foundation of medicine and America's medical policies have been corrupted by political and commercial forces that undermine both the integrity of medical science and the therapeutic raison d'etre of medicine.
Americans suffer from commercially driven healthcare policies whose corporate beneficiaries have denigraded safety and respect for individual human lives in favor of high volume, mega profits. As a result. Americans' health status has declined compared to citizens in the rest of the industrialized nations of the world.

Ebola - Symptoms, Transmission, Treatments and Prophecy
August 12, 2014
The Ebola virus derived its name from a river in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire), in Africa, where it was first recognized. (1) There are 4 subtypes of Ebola virus, three of which can infect humans. The virus is believed to have originated in the tropical jungles of Africa and may have an animal host (fruit bats and monkeys) for its origin. Ebola belongs to a class of viruses known as hemorrhagic viruses. Hemorrhagic virus are known to cause bleeding and may cause death by excess bleeding.
Other types of Hemorrhagic viruses
On March 1, 1952, an article in the British Medical Journal discussed an epidemic of a hemorrhagic virus in Korea known as "Songo Fever" where it attacked United Nations forces in Korea. In 1939, the Japanese reported the same disease and called it "Kokka" disease. The British Medical Journal said the origin of this disease was thought to be a mite that was transmitted by a field mouse. Symptoms include fever, rash, myalgia, and albuminuria that lasts about 7 days. In severe cases there may be haemoptysis, haematemesis, haematuria, and melaena. The Japanese report the fatality rate at 13%. It is reported that antibiotics did not work.
Viral hemorrhagic fevers (VHFs) are of animal and human origin and may be caused by RNA viruses including Arenaviridae, Filoviridae, Bunyaviridae, Flaviviridae, and Rhabdoviridae. "All types of VHF are characterized by fever and bleeding disorders and all can progress to high fever, shock and death in many cases." (2)
Wikipedia also reports:
"Signs and symptoms of VHFs include (by definition) fever and increased susceptibility to bleeding (bleeding diathesis). Manifestations of VHF often also include flushing of the face and chest, small red or purple spots (petechiae), frank bleeding, swelling caused by edema, low blood pressure (hypotension), and shock. Malaise, muscle pain (myalgia), headache, vomiting, and diarrhea occur frequently. The severity of symptoms varies with the type of virus, with the “VHF syndrome” (capillary leak, bleeding diathesis, and circulatory compromise leading to shock) appearing in a majority of patients with filovirus hemorrhagic fevers (e.g., Ebola and Marburg), CCHF, and the South American hemorrhagic fevers, but in a small minority of patients with dengue, RVF, and Lassa fever."
The Ebola outbreak currently affects Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria. Ebola was first identified in 1976 and initially affected the Congo and Sudan. To make the diagnosis, malaria, cholera, typhoid fever, and other viral hemorrhagic disease must be excluded, The mortality rate of Ebola is from 50 to 90%. Recently the CDC reported that the incubation rate is from 8 to 21 days.
Published reports on symptoms of Ebola.
First symptoms (1, 2, 3) are -
1. fever, sore throat, muscle pains and headaches quickly followed by
2. nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, a red rash may cover part or all of the body, leading to
3. decreased functioning of the liver and kidneys and bleeding from multiple body parts.
4. advanced symptoms - tongue and mouth turn red, skin turns red, whites of eyes turn red, yellowing of the skin and red areas at the same time, bleeding from the eyes, nose, ears, mouth, rectum, vagina and penis. Where the virus was not treated, the skin turns black looking like severe burns.

How this Virus is spread
Direct contact with a patients bodily fluids. This not only includes touching a patient, but touching any clothes or objects they have touched or handled. Touching a door knob that an infected patient grasped could pass on the infection. Unlike HIV that requires body to body transfer of fluids, Ebola is spread easily. One person got Ebola by stealing and using a cell phone from a deceased victim. The cell phone had Ebola virions on it and passed it on to the user who then developed the disease. Thus, door knobs, water fountains, any public place could provide contact with a contaminated surface. How about a table and chairs? Public restrooms? Public swimming pools and recreation areas?
Airborne Transmission of the Ebola virus
While in the wild, there is no evidence of airborne transmission of Ebola, the news media reports that Ebola is not transmitted through the air. However, the media does this while offering no explanation why several doctors who are expertly trained not to pick up the Ebola or other infections are, in fact, coming down with the illness. The only obvious source of transmission was the air. Possibly, an Ebola patient could transmit the virus through the air just by talking. An unexpected cough or clearing of the throat could easily spill thousands of Ebola virions into the air. Don't believe CNN and other media outlets that continuously repeat the statement that Ebola is not airborne. One infected person on an international airplane could, by coughing and hacking, spread the Ebola virus to everyone else on the plane. No major city anywhere on this planet is even slightly prepared on how to handle an Ebola outbreak.
August 1, 2014, naturalnews.com reported the following:
In fact, a 2012 BBC article entitled "Growing concerns over 'in the air' transmission of Ebola" states: (3) Canadian scientists have shown that the deadliest form of the ebola virus could be transmitted by air between species. In experiments, they demonstrated that the virus was transmitted from pigs to monkeys without any direct contact between them. In their experiments, the pigs carrying the virus were housed in pens with the monkeys in close proximity but separated by a wire barrier. After eight days, some of the macaques were showing clinical signs typical of ebola and were euthanised. Read more here:

Black Cumin (Nigella sativa) induced a sustained sero-conversion in an HIV patient
This study was published in the African Journal of Traditional, Complementary and Alternative Medicine (2013) 10(5):332-335. The authors are Abdulfatah Adekunle Onifade, Andrew Paul Jewell & Waheed Adeola Adedeji. The email address to reach the author is firstname.lastname@example.org
Immunology unit, College of Medicine, University of Ibadan, Nigeria.
Black Cumin (Nigella sativa) is also known as Black Seed, Kalonji and Haba Al-Barakah. The medicinal uses of Black Seed have been written about in both Islamic and Christian literature for thousands of years. Black seed (Cumin) is used as a spice in Mexican, Spanish, Indian, and Asian cooking.
This study was brought to my attention by a reader who recently emailed me a link to this article. The abstract states the following:
Abstract Nigella sativa had been documented to possess many therapeutic functions in medicine but the least expected is sero-conversion in HIV infection which is very rare despite extensive therapy with highly active anti-retroviral therapy (HAART). This case presentation is to highlight the complete recovery and sero-conversion of adult HIV patient after treatment with Nigella sativa concoction for the period of six months.
The patient presented to the herbal therapist with history of chronic fever, diarrhea, weight loss and multiple pruritic lesions of 3 months duration. Examination revealed moderate weight loss, and the laboratory tests of ELISA and Western blot (new blot 1 & 2) confirmed sero-positivity to HIV infection with pre-treatment viral (HIV-RNA) load of 27,000 copies/ml and CD4 count of 250 cells/ mm3 respectively. The patient was commenced on Nigella sativa concoction 10mls twice daily for 6 months.. He was contacted daily to monitor side-effects and drug efficacy. Fever, diarrhea and multiple pruritic lesions disappeared on 5th, 7th and 20th day respectively on Nigella sativa therapy. The CD4 count decreased to 160 cells/ mm3
Repeated EIA and Western blot tests on 187th day on Nigella sativa therapy was sero-negative. The post therapy CD4 count was 650cells/ mm3 with undetectable viral (HIV-RNA) load. Several repeats of the HIV tests remained sero- negative, aviraemia and normal CD4 count since 24 months without herbal therapy. This case report reflects the fact that there are possible therapeutic agents in Nigella sativa that may effectively control HIV infection.
The full article which I obtained discusses a 46 year old man who had fever and diarrhea started treatment with a herbalist in August of 2009. He was monitored daily. The only treatment the patient used was the Nigella Sativa and honey mixture (60% Nigella sativa and 40% honey). He used no prescribed drugs. He started with a viral load of 27000 and a CD4 count of 250. Within the first 20 days of treatment, all his symptoms had disappeared.
At the end of the first month, his viral load dropped to 1000 and his CD4 count declined to 160. At the end of the second month, his viral load was less than 50 copies and his CD4 count increased to 190. At the end of the 3rd month, his viral load was non-detectable and his CD4 count was 270.
For the first 5 months, his Elisa and Western Blot test were positive for HIV. At the end of the 6 month his CD4 count had increased to 650 and for the first time his antibody test was negative.
His herbal treatment was discontinued after 6 months. After 12 months, his CD4 counts were at 840 and his antibody test was still negative. At the 47th month, his CD4 count was 880, his viral load was nondetectable and his Elisa and Western Blot were still negative. To me it appears this patient was cured of AIDS with 6 months use of Nigella sativa.
This was a single case, well documented, and with impressive results. However, there are some unanswered questions and I emailed them to the authors earlier today. They are.
1. Was the mixture of 40% honey and 60% Nigella sativa based on volume or the weight or each ingredient?
2. Since 10 ml (about 2 teaspoons) was used twice a day, was the mixture made of ground Nigella Sativa seed mixed with honey or the Nigella sativa oil (Black seed oil) mixed with honey?
Reply received August 5th from:
abdulfatai adekunle onifade 10:32 AM (1 hour ago) to me
"It is based on volume. Honey is to make it easir for nigella sativa seed. Seed is the most preferred. Thank you" Dr AA ONIFADE
The authors concluded their article with this statement:
It was concluded that the sustained sero-conversion induced by Nigella sativa concoction in this HIV patient means that all HIV cells at all stages in infected cells in the body must have been lysed. Therefore, there is need to further study more HIV patients on Nigella sativa therapy and its virucidal effect on this pandemic virus.
Note: Black Seed (Nigella sativa) oil and Black Seed capsules are sold in health food stores. amazingherbs.com is one source but there are probably others. Some people may not be able to tolerate the ground herb as a supplement but may tolerate the Black Cumin seed oil better. You may email your comments to us about this article.
Hillary Clinton ignores the poisoning of America's food supply by Monsanto's GMO corn and soybeans as she accepts $225,000 in speaking fees before a biotechnology convention in San Diego.
Fooddemocracynow.org reported that in her recent speech in San Diego "Clinton went on to say that she supports "[GMO] seeds and products that have a proven track record." In particular, she acknowledged the type of drought-resistant seeds that she touted during her tenure as U.S. Secretary of State. During her speech, which took place at the San Diego Convention Center, some Americans who know the truth about GMOs' "track record" protested outside; they noted that at least 26 countries have banned GMOs from their agricultural production and food marketplaces.
Note: Drought resistant corn and soybeans is not what people are protesting about - it is the Bt pesticide and herbicides from GMO corn and soy that have contaminated our food supply. I guess Hillary is just like any other professional politican - accept the cash and ignore the science that gets in the way of generous campaign contributions. Why doesn't she and her counterparts in the Wall St Wing of the Republican party just put a "For Sale" sign on their back? Both political parties have a Wall St wing that needs clipping.
The following article and petition is by Katherine Paul of the Organic Consumers Association -To be delivered to Hillary Clinton-
Hillary Clinton could be the next Democratic presidential nominee. Do we really want someone in the White House who protects Monsanto's profits at the expense of public health? Scientists, medical professionals and climate experts warn us that a food and agriculture system built around poisons like Monsanto's Roundup and Dow's 2,4-D, a system that promotes soy and corn monocultures instead of crop diversity, is unhealthy for humans and the environment. Genetically engineered agriculture has failed. It has created superweeds that require increasingly toxic poisons, and those poisons are showing up in the blood, urine and breast milk of humans.
The United Nations last year issued a report entitled "Before It's Too Late," stating that not only will genetically engineered crops not feed the world, as the biotech industry claims, but they are a huge contributor to global warming. Polls show that 93% of Americans want GMO labeling laws. Yet politicians like Hillary Clinton, whose ties to the biotech industry run deep, continue to pander to Monsanto. Even Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who claims that he is pro-states' rights, has said he would not defend states' rights to label GMOs.
The next leader of the U.S. needs to take a stand against huge corporations that are devastating the environment and human health. If Hillary Clinton is not that leader, consumers will look to candidates like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who has a proven track record of supporting states' rights to label GMOs, and the transition to organic, sustainable, regenerative agriculture.
GLUTATHIONE – A LIFE SUSTAINING MOLECULE
Ron Peters MD
Your life depends on a very small molecule called glutathione (GSH) that is found in every cell of your body. It is made of three amino acids and it serves three life sustaining functions:
- Glutathione is the most important and abundant antioxidant inside all the cells of the body, serving to neutralize free radicals.
- Essential for the immune system to fight infections and kill cancer cells.
- Detoxifying chemicals and heavy metals, and removing them from the body.
What medical science knows about glutathione
Intracellular GSH plays a central role in the functioning of all immune cells and is required for T and B cells to differentiate into fully active cells. Glutathione plays a critical role in maintaining cellular energy (ATP) production by protecting mitochondria from the oxidative damage from oxygen metabolism, and, reducing the damaging effects of mercury, lead and other heavy metals that can disturb and even destroy mitochondria.
The highest concentration of glutathione is found in the liver, making it critically important in the detoxification and elimination of free radicals. Accumulation of these dangerous compounds can result in oxidative stress, which occurs when the generation of free radicals in the body exceeds the body’s ability to neutralize and eliminate them.

Flu season is usually in the winter when the northern hemisphere is devoid of the sun’s virus killing UV rays. However, with days and weeks on end of rainy weather, and lack of daily sunshine, some kind of stomach flue bug began appearing locally.
Symptoms were stomach discomfort, chest congestion, low-grade fever and aching joints. Seeking to locate a store that sold Indian meals, I happened by chance upon a store brimming with Chinese herbs, most of them with labels written in the Chinese language and unreadable to me.
As I walked along the aisle, a Chinese man approached me and asked me if I needed help. I told him I had some kind of a cold or stomach virus and was looking for some spicy Indian meals that I could take home. He then invited me to sit down. He told me he was a doctor of oriental medicine. It was my first such encounter. Read more here
Monsanto and the Grocery Manufacturers of America (GMA) sue Vermont to try to overturn its recently enacted law for GMO product labeling
A wide range of organizations are reporting the filing of this lawsuit that was promised by the GMA and Monsanto when Vermont's Gov. Peter Shumlin signed the nations' first ever GMO labeling law on May 8, 2014.
Support for GMO labeling laws by members of moveon.org is important and crucial as the organization has 8 million members and can generate a lot of petitions and email to state officials as well as Washington.
The following are excerpts from an email by Anna Galland of MoveOn.org on Jun 22, 2014. - Read more here.
June 16 - AT and T removes Wi-Fi (microwave signaling) from our modem
On March 10th, 2014, I reported in this blog that modems from AT and T, TWC, Comcast, and other internet providers area major source of microwave radiation, and equivalent to standing in front of a constantly running microwave oven or living near a cell phone tower. I verified the reading outputs with a Cornet Electrosmog Tester. Routers used for wireless connections also emit equally significant amounts of microwave radiation when actively in use.
Today June 16, our phone line with AT and T went dead and a technician was sent out to repair it. While the old modem was rebooted and uploaded with software, the technician decided to replace it with a new one. I showed him the box lined with double aluminum foil (that I had surrounded the modem with) to block the microwave signals. With the Cornet tester, I showed him exactly how much radiation was emitted by AT and T's modem and compared it to radiation leaking from a microwave oven. Both readings were in the red zone exceeding 180mw/m2.
He said he could disable the wireless WI-Fi signals from the modem. He made an internal adjustment to the new modem, and then entered it on my computer at AT and T's website. When the modem was turned back on, I no longer needed the aluminum box. The wireless microwave signals AKA WI-Fi was zero, just the way I like it.
If you have a modem from any of the major internet providers (Time Warner, AT and T etc), and use ethernet or cables to connect to your various devices like printers, fax machines, etc, you can call your internet provider and have them disable the wireless signals (the Wi-Fi) signals being emitted out of the main modem so you don't need to be microwaved while you are working on your desktop computer.
I have observed friends that use laptop computer, and 99% of the time, they stay on a desk at home when they are being used. At home or office, people using wireless laptops are in locations where it is just as easy to use a wired connection. I would also give up wireless television (Uverse), and would only using wired connections instead.
My own theory is that the overload of high frequency energy in the form of microwave radiation is taking its toll on the human body and is especially affecting the brain, and the adrenal glands is an adverse way leading to fatigue, insomnia, and contributing to many of the diseases of civilization.
A poison pill (FDA approval) kills medical marijuana use in Wisconsin
The Milwaukee Journal stated this morning (6/16/14) that a derivative of marijuana called cannabidiol (CBD) used to treat seizures was approved by the State of Wisconsin, and signed by Gov. Scott Walker two months ago. In spite of this, no doctor in Wisconsin has prescribed it. The reason is that someone in the State Senate inserted the requirement for "FDA approval." This was done without understanding the legal and financial burdens created by this "poison pill" would be insurmountable. Read more here.
VACCINE INDUCED OVERLOAD AND RELATED SERIOUS HEALTH IS BECOMING THE NORM NOT THE EXCEPTION IN US CHILDREN
May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — A new peer reviewed paper was published in a recent issue of Molecular and Genetic Medicine (S1:025, 2014) that presents convincing evidence that the rapid increase in the number of vaccines given to US children has now created a state of immune overload in the majority, or close to the majority, of young US children and that this is being manifested by related health issues including epidemics of obesity, diabetes, and autism. The new paper is authored by immunologist J. Bart Classen, MD.
"We have been publishing for years that vaccines are causing an epidemic of inflammatory diseases including diabetes, obesity and autism. However the number of vaccines given to children has continued to rise to a point where we have reached a state of immune overload in roughly the majority of young US children. The new paper reviews the evidence of immune overload and the plethora of different health effects the children are developing because of the immune overload," says Dr. J. Bart Classen, MD.
Dr. Classen's research indicates that the large number of vaccines given to patients is leading to an epidemic of chronic inflammation resulting in epidemics of autoimmune diseases, allergies, and a comprehensive inhibitory response manifesting as obesity and metabolic syndrome.
"The best data indicates that vaccine induced chronic disease is now of a magnitude that dwarfs almost all prior poisoning of humans including poisoning from agents like asbestos, low dose radiation, lead and even cigarettes. Most patients don't even realize that they are suffering from the adverse effects of vaccines. Even more concerning patients and or their parents are being harassed, accused of practicing poor dieting and exercise habits leading to development obesity and diabetes when in fact they suffer from vaccine induced obesity and diabetes," says Dr. J. Bart Classen.
May 22nd. Congress restricts mass NSA data collection of Americans with the USA Freedom Act
Report 21 (June 2, 2014)
Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner, (my Congressman) who sponsored the original Patriot Act that started the mass collection of private data by the National Security Agency (NSA) has strongly criticized the agency for exceeding the powers granted to it by Congress after 911. Rep Sensenbrenner was a leading sponsor of the USA Freedom Act. The following was his statement on 5/22/2014.
Mr. Speaker, I want to thank the House for bringing the USA FREEDOM Act to the floor. I was Chairman of the Judiciary Committee on September 11, 2001. In the wake of that tragedy, the Committee passed the PATRIOT Act with unanimous, bipartisan support. The bill easily passed in both the House and Senate, and President George W. Bush signed it into law. I believe the PATRIOT Act made America safer by enhancing the government’s ability to find and stop terrorist attacks. We were also careful to maintain the civil liberties that distinguish us from our enemies.
We’re here today because the government misapplied the law and upset the balance between privacy and security that we had fought to preserve. In a feat of legal gymnastics, the Administration convinced the FISA court that, because some records in the universe of every phone call Americans made were relevant to counterterrorism, the entire universe of calls must be relevant. The decision opened the floodgates to a practice of bulk collection that Congress never intended.
Senator Leahy and I introduced the USA FREEDOM Act to end bulk collection, increase transparency, and re-establish a proper balance between privacy and security. After months of input and negotiations—in a historic echo of its vote on the PATRIOT Act—the Judiciary Committee unanimously passed the FREEDOM Act. Read more here.
Saturday May 24th Worldwide March Against Monsanto.
208 events are planned in the United States alone. Click here to locate an event in your area. [Click on the second column to select your country, then the state or city, and scroll to the far right column for the event and time, or go to facebook page link for your local event.]
May 24th update - go here to see photos of the protest against Monsanto from around the world. The mass media continues to ignore these street protests. On May 24th, I watched NBC evening news with Lester Holt. It was brought to viewers by "Roundup" (Monsanto's notorious herbicide). Apparently NBC is more interested in protecting its bottom line than to report the truth. Ditto for the other mass media whores (ABC- FOX and CBS).
In spite of this, we must continue the battle against Wall St's economic oligarchs that continue to poison our food supply for their own profit. The policy of letting big corporations poison the US food supply for their bottomline has the active support of Wall St lawyers (e.g. Michael Taylor - former VP Monsanto) working within the FDA and USDA.

Dr Ronald Peters MD co-authors a new updated version of the Immune Restoration Handbook
May 19 2014
The Immune Restoration Handbook was updated last month. It is now co-authored by Dr. Ronald Peters MD. Three articles he wrote on MindBody Medicine, Wisdom of the Body, and one on Nutrition have been included in this latest printing, which is an updated version of the third edition. The book has been reformatted into two columns with smaller paragraphs for easier reading.
A chapter on "Balance your Blood Sugar" has been added and an updated index is included. Every chapter in the book including the sections on GMO's, Symptoms and Remedies, and Hepatitis have been carefully reviewed and updated. By eliminating repetition, the number of pages and price remains the same. The gill sans font, which is easy to read, was retained. Although Ron Peters MD's name is on the front cover as a co-author, the book's cover looks basically the same as in the last printing.
Since the 3rd edition was introduced in 2010, all printings have been done in small lots so reprints can be updated twice a year. This is why there has been some gradual changes in content over time. In a constantly changing world, no edition will ever be the final edition until it is the final edition. Your purchase of our lifetime's work, the Immune Restoration Handbook, supports our mission to educate the public on many issues, and create a better world for all of us. Thank you for your support.

Governor Peter Shumlin of Vermont signs the first GMO labeling law in the nation
Facebook statement on May 8 2014.
Today I was proud to sign the nation's first law requiring GMO labeling. Vermonters and Americans have the right to know what is in their food. It's common sense. We all have the right to know what is in our food. More than 60 countries already have laws restricting or labeling foods produced with genetic engineering. Now, Vermont is the first state to require common-sense labeling for foods produced with genetic engineering. Vermont’s first-in-the-nation law is expected to be challenged in court by food producers that do not want to disclose this information to consumers.
In April, the state of Vermont also set up a food fight fund to defend this law against expected court challenges from the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) and industry members who oppose the labeling of geneticially modified foods. Donations to the Food Fight Fund will help Vermont implement and administer its new law, and mount a powerful defense against these lawsuits. If you're able and willing to help us fight back, contribute to the Vermont Food Fight Fund
May 12, 2014. FDA v LeBeau - It is now 14 months and counting since the last legal arguments were filed in this case. Under court rules, the local Federal Judge must review the case before it can be forwarded to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago. A letter requesting an update on the status of the review was mailed to United States Chief Judge Charles Clevert on April 21, 2014. No reply was received as of May 12th. This silence creates a mystery.
