We live in a world that is not ours alone. With us on this earth are not only cockroaches, ants, lions, and snakes but also germs that we cannot see with the unaided eye. We still cannot tell why we have to co-exist with them, except the knowledge that some, if not all of these germs, help to facilitate the decay of any form of life from which life is draining away or has drained. Candida, a member of the fungi/yeast family does this. It is plentiful in breast cancer tissue that is decaying, a signal that the life force is draining from the rest of the body as well. When the tongue is gray, that is a mirror, warning us that candida is overgrowing its population in the intestine. Happily, Mother Nature gives us in the Plant Kingdom enough weapons to protect our bodies against these undertakers, as Dr. Robert Young calls them. This series has been featuring many of these natural weapons. The feature continues today.

 

Maharani

Non-Indians who cherish Indian food should be no strangers to Maharani. In India and in the United Kingdom, it is the name of great Indian restaurants which claims to offer the best in Indian cuisine. In Nigeria, I do not know if a Maharani restaurant exists. We hear, always, of Mandarin restaurants. But for some years now, Maharani has been featuring in the Alternative Medicine market as a proprietary herbal blend recipe for many female problems especially those which involve the ovaries. Many women who have heard about it or are using it for health reasons link it with the elimination of uterine fibroids. For this purpose, it is often prescribed along with systematic enzymes such as Serrapeptase, which helps to dissolve unnatural growths.

Maharani has about ten benefits for a woman’s health, according to its product literature.

These are:

ONE: It combats menstrual pain, excessive white discharge and flatulence.

TWO: The menstrual cycle is balanced through a regulation by this product.

THREE: Some women take a long time to recover from the strains and rigours of pregnancy. Maharani is said to shorten recovery time.

FOUR: Women cherish healthy, youthful, supple and radiant skin, Maharani is said to help them achieve them.

FIVE: For women who have uterine challenges, including uterine fibroids and prolapsed uterus, it should be good news that Maharani helps strengthen, support and align the uterine wall.

SIX: Also important for a woman’s fertility is healthy blood circulation. Many women sight heavy black cloths of blood in their menstrual blood. This is deoxygenated blood. It means the blood got “hooked” up in the uterus for longer than it should and lost its oxygen content. As fresh blood sluggishly comes to the uterus, oxygen and nutrient deliveries are delayed. This makes uterine cells sick, and germs take advantage of them. Any wonder then, that candida, bacteria, viruses etc are found in uterine fibroid tissue. Maharani literature says “it improves blood circulation prior to the menstrual cycle”.

SEVEN: Every woman wishes to be fertile, for as long as possible. Female fertility involves many factors, including hormonal balance, clear and open fallopian tubes, healthy ovaries aid a functional uterus and cervix among others. It is not stated in the literature how Maharani helps with these. But there is no doubt that it has a positive impact on the ovaries, which are crucial for the attainment of these factors.

EIGHT: For women whose tummies continue to bulge after child birth due to slack abdominal muscles, Maharani is presented as an agent which helps to “contract the uterine muscles after childbirth”.

NINE: What are women without estrogen and progesterone, the two major female hormones? They give a woman her delicate curves, bosom breasts, supple skin and hair and skin and voice. When the hormones are out of balance, a woman’s health is jeopardised. Too much estrogen, for example, has been implicated in breast cancer, period pains, uterus fibroids, elevated blood prolactin levels, which cause nipple discharge and block the ovaries from producing and releasing eggs. If Maharani balances female hormones as promised in its literature, that should be great news for women beset with hormonal imbalance. I have no reason to doubt its capacity for this to call the hormones to order. For Maharani is a compendium of herbs targeted at female reproductive organs and fertility.

If a woman who lived in the Shomolu area of Lagos a few years ago reads this, she should see herself in a mirror, and laugh. She was in her early thirties and had been married about three years without a child. She was not menstruating. She sought help for her menstrual cycle, and she was advised to try Maharani. She requested other hormone-balancing herbs as well, against advice. When her period came, it was in a flood and ran for more days than normal. The bleeding had to be stopped. Today she is a happier woman with fruits of the womb.

TEN: What about menopausal women who suffer from hot flashes and other change of life- discomforts, including oesteoporosis? When hormones are not balanced, calcium does not fixed properly in the bones. Many women suffer from deposition of calcium in wrong places, including the joints (arthritis), shoulders (frozen shoulders), eye lens (cataracts) etc. Maharani is said to help this class of women as well.

e live in an age of mycoplasma diseases. Going by the germ theory of disease, we believe diseases are caused by germs. Therefore, mycoplasma disease would be a disease caused by myco (small germs) in the plasma. Blood plasma is a pale yellow fluid part of the blood, one of the functions of which is to hold blood cells (red or white) in the bloodstream. About 55 percent of the blood volume, blood plasma is, that part of fluid in blood vessels which can migrate outside the blood vessels to, again, form part of the extra cellular fluid, that is fluid outside the blood vessels (interstitial fluid) which surrounds the 100 trillion or, more cells in an average adult human body. Blood plasma is largely water in which are dissolved nutrients such as proteins, glucose, and clothing factor, electrolytes, hormones and anti-nutrients or wastes such as carbon dioxide. In interstitial fluid, plasma supports osmotic forces which send nutrients into the cells and bring out their wastes for evacuation.

The plasma can be inhabited by mycoplasma and ureaplasma. Mycoplasma and ureaplasma belong to the family of smallest free living bacteria. They do not have cell walls and live inside the cells or in cultures outside of cells. This explains why organs of the body can become infected, especially by mycoplasma and ureaplasma (a cause of working pneumonia) if the blood plasma becomes infected by them.

When I hear of conditions such as Polysystic Ovarian Syndrome (POS) for example, my mind immediately races to mycoplasma travelling through the blood to the interstitial (extra vascular) fluid into the cells of the ovaries where they can be reached by a special class of antibiotic and antiviral herbs.

Some of the symptoms of mycoplasma and ureaplasma germs in the body may include discharge, burning, urinary urgency and pain.

Laboratory tests fail to fish out the culprit. Germs are difficult and expensive, and only a few pharmaceutical antibiotics successfully deal with the germs. Even then, they may have to be taken for months. Patients may become tired of taking the medicines, thereby given the bacteria respite and increasing their leg room.

About 16 species of mycoplasma have been identified. Three have been linked to human infections such as working pneumonia, atypical pneumonia, urinary and genital infections, including vaginitis, sexually transmitted diseases (STD), and chronic diseases in people with weakened immunity. Some doctors believe that more than 50 percent of sexually active women are colonised by a specie called urealyticam, which they may pass on to the new babies. This should strike a note of warning to men who indulge in oral sex.

According to a tropical plants data base authored by LESLIE TAYLOR, Bellaco Capsi…

“…reduces pain, reduces inflammation, kills bacteria, kills fungi/candida, kills cancer cells, heal wounds, prevent ulcers, aids menstruation, cleans lymph glands, reduces fever, calms coughs, cleans blood and expels worms”

Leslie taylor says different countries which are familiar with Bellaco Capsi use it for different purposes, although there are common uses. He says:

“In Brazilian Herbal medicine, Bellaco Capsi is considered analgesic, anti-inflamatory, anti-tumoral, anti-fungi, anthel-mintic, (against worms), aphrodisiac, emanogogue (menstrual stimulant), emollient, febrifuge (reduces fever) purgative, tonic, fermifuge (kills parasites) and vulnerary (heals wounds). Practitioners and herbalists in Brazil recommend it for lymphatic gland disease and inflammation, female disorder such as endometriosis, uterine fibroid, tumours, menstrual irregularities and pain, ovarian cyst and ovarian inflammation, cancerous tumours and skin cancers, digestion problems such as indigestion, stomach ache, bowel inflammation and gastric ulcer, general pain and inflammation (arthritis, rheumatism and fractures), cough fevers, headaches, asthma and other lung diseases and various skin issues such as wounds, ulcers, and rashes”.

In Peru, Bellaco Capsi enjoys similar reputation. The Peruvians add hernias to the list. The guyaness add liver disorders to the lists.

In 1998, Brazilian researchers reported that Bellaco Capsi bark exhibited greater antifungal effect than control drug that was used (Nistatin)”.

In 2005, a Brazilian researcher suggested that Bellaco Capsi’s anti-asthma action may be due to its relaxation of smooth muscles.

About three or four years ago, I suggested Bellaco Capsi to a woman who faced the challenge of bilateral Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (POS)! she could not ovulate and had no child. She had taken many pharmaceutical drugs prescribed by her gynaecologist, to no avail. Suspecting mycoplasma bacteria and candida at work, I informed her of the need to detoxify not only the blood but the plasma and the lymph as well. In those days, there were no systemic detoxifiers as we have today… for example, there were no Diatomaceus, Zeolyte AV (for viruses) and Zeolite pure (for heavy metals, toxins etc) Serrapeptase (to dissolve growths), etc she took the ones available and in addition Bellaco Capsi. Soon, her pains subsided, her ovulation came and she became pregnant. Unfortunately, the pregnancy turned out to be ectopic and was evacuated in the hospital to protect her life. We were in touch for a while, and lost touch afterwards.

rYemiJohn, a safety engineer full of life and meticulous about naturalness in all things, deserves the credit for inviting my attention to BIOTRUST group of product. They’ve always been around us, but I’d always taken no more than a passing interest in them until I sighted them with this gentleman. In the BIOTRUST groups are such products as:-

•Biotrust low carb, a milk and whey protein in concentrate mixed with fibre and digestive enzymes including pro-hydrolase. Prohydrolase is believed to facilitate maximum delivery of protein to the muscles than other protein digestive enzymes. It is recommended that it be taken within ten minutes of mixing with water because prohydrolase immediately sets to work digesting the protein.

•BCAA Matrix. The acronym means Branched Chain Amino Acids, since a few years ago become one of the latest words in natural medicine. With lots of leucine, an amino acid present in it, this products is suggested for dieters who do not wish to lose muscle mass while losing body fat to a sliming diet. This products pride itself as being better than other BCCA products because, as the producers say, it employs a three-pathway delivery system, instead of one in other products, to deliver nutrients to the muscles during a diet fast. It is said that, in other BCCAs, Leucine, Valine and Isoleucine occur in a 2:1:1 ratio. But in Biotrust’s BCCA Matrix, Leucine occurs in a 4:1:1 ratio to the other two because, says BIOTRUST, Leucine has been found by researchers to be the most anabolic amino acid. At this Leucine concentration, it is believed that this BCCA product can melt “Spot Specific belly fat”

•IC-5. This is a blood sugar balancing supplement which is reported to stop insulin resistance. In insulin resistance, the cells shut their doors against insulin which, accordingly, cannot help sugar burning in the cells and, so, makes blood sugar concentrate in the bloodstream. Improved insulin sensitivity increases fat burning, decreases fat storage and supports blood sugar management. Some of the ingredients include known sugar burners such as (1) Cinnamon (2) Burmannii (3) Berberine (4) Pterocarpus Marsupium (5)Alpha Liopic Acid (ALA)

•LEPTIN – BURN: Leptin is the dominant fat–burning hormone in the body. Many people have a deficiency of it or are resistant to insulin. To burn fat, high amounts of Leptin are required as are leptin receptors in the cells highly sensitive to Leptin. Leptin levels may drop by half within one week of a fat burning diet. This may be why many people return to status-quo-ante after ending a fat burning diet. In LEPTIN BURN, irvingia gabonensis increases leptin sensitivity while oleanotic acid increases leptin output and effectiveness. Brown sea wool extract also increases leptin production and Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) which increases body metabolism. There is also Panax Notog Inseng, which decreases appetite and improves leptin sensitivity. Yerba mate  and Green tea extract compliments the ingredients to curb appetite and increase energy and alertness.

Pro – X10

A few decades ago, the Royal College of Surgeons issued a health or death alert in which it said death begins slowly but surely in the intestines. The intestine of many people is rotten and a breeding ground for killer germs. Sometimes, these germs escape into the bloodstream from where they may colonise some organs, causing organ failures. BIOTRUST reminds us that about 80 percent of the immune cells in our bodies are resident in our intestine (gastro-intestinal system). The 25 feet long system houses about 100 trillion bacteria species. That, says BIOTRUST, is about ten times the number of cells in some human bodies. But the population of bacteria is not the crucial issue. The critical issue is how many of them are friendly bacteria, that is harmless bacteria, and how many, being unfriendly, are dangerous bacteria. The ideal ratio of good or bad bacteria is about 9:1, according to BIOTRUST. But unfortunately, many people have a much, lower ratio of good to bad bacteria. BIOTRUST says:

“Due to lifestyle and environmental factors, the majority of the population is severely lacking when it comes to good probiotic bacteria. There are more than 200 studies linking inadequate probiotic levels to more than 170 diseases and health issues ranging from gut specific issues to mental health disorders to allergies to obesity. As you may have guessed gut health and the proper ratio of bacteria in the gut flora are extremely important for overall health and play a critical role in immune function, prevention of many diseases, and optimising body composition. In fact, research is now suggesting that supplementing with probiotic every single day is even more important to your health than taking a daily multivitamin”.
