The main causes of liver damage are

Standard

The main causes of liver damage are:
1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are the main cause.
2. Not urinating in the morning.
3. Too much eating.
4. Skipping breakfast.
5. Consuming too much medication.
6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, and artificial sweetener.
7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil. As much as possible reduce cooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if the body is very fit.
8. Consuming overly done foods also add to the burden of liver. Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried veggies should be finished in one sitting, do not store.

We just have to adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining good eating habits and time condition are very important for our body to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals according to ‘schedule.’

Because: Evening at 9 – 11pm : is the time for eliminating unnecessary/ toxic chemicals (de-toxification) from the antibody system (lymph nodes). This time duration should be spent by relaxing or listening to music. If during this time a housewife is still in an unrelaxed state such as washing the dishes or monitoring children doing their homework, this will have a negative impact on her health. So, husbands should watch out for this.

Evening at 11pm – 1am : The de-toxification process in the liver, and ideally should be done in a deep sleep state.

Early morning 1 – 3am : de-toxification process in the gall, also ideally done in a deep sleep state.

Early morning 3 – 5am : de-toxification in the lungs. Therefore there will sometimes be a severe cough for cough sufferers during this time. Since the de-toxification process had reached the respiratory tract, there is no need to take cough medicine so as not to interfere with toxin removal process.

Morning 5 – 7am : de-toxification in the colon, you should empty your bowel.

Morning 7 – 9am : Absorption of nutrients in the small intestine, you should be having breakfast at this time. Breakfast should be earlier, before 6:30am, for those who are sick. Breakfast before 7:30am is very beneficial to those wanting to stay fit. Those who always skip breakfast, they should change their habits, and it is still better to eat breakfast late until 9 -10am rather than no meal at all. Sleeping so late and waking up too late will disrupt the process of removing unnecessary chemicals.

Aside from that, midnight to 4 AM is the time when the bone marrow produces blood.Therefore, have a good sleep and don’t sleep late.

MESSAGE FOR THE RICHEST IN UGANDA

Standard

RICHNESS IS WHEN YOU NEED NO MORE

In 1923, eight of the wealthiest people in the world met. Their combined wealth, it is estimated, exceeded the wealth of the government of the United States at that time.

These men certainly knew how to make a living and accumulate wealth. But let’s examine what happened to them 25 years later.

President of the largest steel company, Charles Schwab, lived on borrowed capital for five years before he died bankrupt.

President of the largest gas company, Howard Hubson, went insane.

One of the greatest commodity traders, Arthur Cutton, died insolvent.

President of the New York Stock Exchange, Richard Whitney, was sent to jail.

A member of the President’s Cabinet, Albert Fall, was pardoned from jail to go home and die in peace.

The greatest “bear” on Wall Street, Jessie Livermore, committed suicide.

President of the world’s greatest monopoly, Ivar Krueger, committed suicide.

President of the Bank of International Settlement, Leon Fraser, committed suicide.

What they forgot was how to make a life!

Money in itself is not evil! Money provides food for the hungry, medicine for the sick, clothes for the needy.

Money is only a medium of exchange.

We need two kinds of education. One that teaches us how to make a living and one that teaches us how to live.

There are people who are so engrossed in their professional life that they neglect their family, health, spiritual life and social responsibilities.

If asked why they do this they would reply that they were doing it for their family. Our kids are sleeping when we leave home. They are sleeping when we come home. Twenty years later, we’ll turn back, and they’ll all be gone.

Without water, a ship cannot move. The ship needs water, but if the water gets into the ship, the ship will face problems. What was once a means of living for the ship will now become a means of destruction.

Similarly we live in a time where earning is a necessity but let not the earning enter our hearts, for what was once a means of living will be become a means of destruction.

So take a moment and ask yourself…. has water entered my ship?

RICHNESS is not Earning More, Spending More Or Saving More, but “RICHNESS IS WHEN YOU NEED NO MORE”

Have the best of weekends ahead… Once Again Please Remember The reality of Wealth: “RICHNESS IS WHEN YOU NEED NO MORE”

A Non Muslim came to an Alim and asked: Why is it Not Permissible in Islam for a Women to shake hands with a Man?

The Alim said: Can you shake hands with Queen Elizabeth?

The Non Muslim said: Ofcourse not, there are only certain people who can shake hands with Queen Elizabeth.

Alim replied: Our Women are Queens and Queens do not shake hands with strange men.

Then the Non Muslim asked onother Question: Why do your Girls cover up their body and hair?

The Non Muslim replied: The covered one.

The Alim said: That’s how we treat and see our women. Women should not be like the Moon which everyone can See and Admire, they should be like the Sun which makes the Viewers Lower their Gaze.

Alim Replied: Look at the Sun

Man Replied: I Can’t see, the Rays hurt my eyes Alim Said: If u can’t see at the Creation of God then how will you be able to Look at the Creater?

Person who got cured of advance stomach cancer using Honey and Black Seeds

Standard

Salamun alaykum To all

Hope all is well. Some one sent this to me very useful. The following information is about a person who got cured of advance stomach cancer when all the oncologists including the German oncologists had told him that his case was incurable. After being left in Al- Ain Hospital (UAE) to be taken care of as there was no hope for him to be cured from the doctors, he still continued with his prayers (Salaah) and kept on reciting the Holy Quran. A few days later a young man comes and talks to him about his condition and tells him that his disease can be cured by taking the following mixture:

1/2 kg of Natural Pure Honey
2 heaped table spoon of Kalonji seeds (Black Seeds/ Habbat Sauda)
1 bulb of organic garlic
Grind the kalonji seeds preferably with a mortar and pestle, mash the whole garlic and mix it with the honey into a smooth paste.
Take one teaspoon of this mixture daily before breakfast for about 3-6months and InshaAllah you will be cured of your disease.
Also take one glass of camel milk every night.

After 3 weeks of taking this medicine, the person started walking and eating again without vomiting blood.

After about 3 months he went to see his oncologists to get him tested and they were shocked to find out that there was no trace of any cancer or tumor
in his body. Subhanallah! How Allah cures us when we sincerely turn to Him for shafa!

‘Wa idha maridhtu fahuwa yashfeen’ ‘And he heals me when I am sick’ (Holy Quran, 26:80)

This is a true story that took place four years ago, the person is now around 63years of age and still continues working at Dubai Hospital.

Hadith about Honey:

“By Him in whose hand is my soul, eat honey. For there is no house in which honey is kept for which the angels will not ask for mercy. If a person eats honey, a Thousand remedies enter his stomach and a Million diseases will come out. If a man dies and honey is found within him, fire will not touch his body [i.e., he will be immune from the burning of hell].” hadith

Hadith about black seed (Kalonji):

Al-Bukhaari reported ‘Aa’ishah (May Allah be pleased with her) as having said that the Prophet Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam had said: “There is healing in the black seed for every disease except death.” [Al-Bukhaari and Muslim].

As for the manner of using it as a healing agent, there is no particular way. In his book ‘Fath al-Bari’, Ibn Hajar said, “Al-Mustaghfiri in his ‘Book of Medicine’ reported Ibn Buraidah (May Allah be pleased with him) as having quoted the Prophet Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam saying: ‘There is healing in the black seed…etc.’
In another narration it was said, ‘What is the black seed?’ He said, ‘Shoneez’ (a name for black seed; scientific name Nigella sativa).
Someone then asked, ‘How can I use it?’ to which he answered: You take twenty one grains (black seeds) and put them in a piece of cloth then in water for one night. When you get up in the following morning, you drop one drop in your right nostril and two in your left nostril”.

Al-Haafith (Ibn Hajar May Allah have mercy upon him) said, “What is to be understood from this Hadeeth about the black seed being a healing for every disease is that it is not necessarily applied alone as a treatment procedure for every case. Rather it may be used alone, in combination with something else, pulverized, directly without pulverizing it, mixed with food and drink, or as dressing, etc.”

I hope this information will help all those who are suffering or have their dear ones going through a similar situation.
