Mystery Food Cures of the Bible

One day while perusing through Half Priced Books, I stumbled upon a book called Miracle Food Cures from the Bible. Being the geeky dietitian that I am, I knew I must immediately possess it. I thought I would share a few tidbits. I take this information to be more in the spirit of fun rather than scientific fact. Although the author is pretty convinced of each remedy’s effectiveness. There is not a single condition or disease that this book can’t treat or cure. Aging, ulcerative colitis, gout, or conjunctivitis? Cured….after you purchase the book.

Let’s examine a few of the fun cures.

Hair Loss No more

Forget hair club and rogaine. All you need is a little watercress. Drink a glass of watercress juice in the morning and all of your poisons will vanish.  Once your poisons are gone, you will re-grow your hair and prevent future hair loss.

Another method includes the use of rosemary. Use rosemary tea (the actual herb leaves, not the tea that is infused with rosemary) as a rinse after shampooing. Watch that bald spot disappear. But be patient since this may take months.

What can’t Wheatgrass do for you?

Wheatgrass has many abilities, as evidenced by Daniel 4:31-34. King Nebuchadnezzar is driven out and forced to eat grass like the cows. After he eats the grass, his sanity is restored. He was of course dreaming this scenario.

Wheatgrass claims to cause a loss of at least 4 pounds per week by increasing blood flow and metabolism. It also provides enzymes (don’t get me started on that..). It aids in relief from arthritis, colitis, emphysema, multiple sclerosis, and wounds.

Peppermint’s Soothing Properties

Peppermint oil can be used to relieve aches and pains around the body. This is not the first time I have heard of this. The author did not list the specific origin in the bible or other historical sources, but it aids in relief of headaches, toothaches and arthritis. Just rub the oil on the ache. Be careful to avoid sensitive areas such as the eyes.

Do you know where I can get some cheap shark cartilage?

Shark cartilage may provide the greatest benefit. It reduces and prevents the growth of tumors and cancers. Since cartilage does not possess a network of blood vessels, injecting it or taking it orally inhibits blood vessel growth in the body. While it is not meant to replace the traditional treatments it could be used in conjunction with a normal doctor’s supervised plan.

It was a fun romp through the Miracles Food Cures from the Bible. Again this was in the spirit of fun and not meant to support any of the above claims. My major concern with this book is that it is not well cited. It makes many claims and lacks evidence to support it. So while I think it is fun, I am keeping it in perspective and not consulting it as my first course of treatment.

Today’s Verse: “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith- and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast.” Eph. 2:8-9.
