Ginger and Barley

Please forward to all your Cancer friends who may need this remedy to    
fight their cancer. Keep forwarding as this will help others from time to
time.                                                                    
A Cancer Killer in the Kitchen - Ginger                                  
The powerful healing effects of ginger have been well documented. It's a  
proven remedy for upset stomach. Reams of studies show that it inhibits  
inflammation. And there is substantial evidence that it fights cancer too.
                                                                         
                                                                         
For instance, a recent University of Michigan study showed that when      
ginger was added to ovarian cancer cells in the laboratory, it caused the
cancer cells to self-destruct (a process known as "apoptosis"). In a      
separate study at the University of Minnesota , researchers injected colon
cancer cells into mice that were bred to have no immune system.          
                                                                         
Half of these mice were routinely fed gingerol, the main active          
component in ginger. The researchers found that the mice that were fed    
gingerol lived longer, their tumors were smaller, and the cancer did not  
spread as widely as in the control group.                                
                                                                         
With all these health benefits, you should be using ginger as often as you
can. The best way I've found to get a healthy serving of ginger is to    
juice it. (The brand of juicer I use is an Omega.) Two or three days a    
week, I juice an apple or two, some carrots, spinach, broccoli, cabbage,  
and a big piece of ginger root.                                          
                                                                         
                                                                         
The ginger gives the drink a great flavor and a powerful anti-cancer kick.
                                                                         
I highly recommend that you try it.

Healing and cleansing with barley                                        
                                                                         
High in fibre, barley is also a kidney cleanser. Better yet, regular      
intake of it helps  prevent heart disease. BARLEY water was always a      
regular drink  when we were still living at home. Whenever we had to go  
for a medical exam that included a urine test, my mum would make us drink
barley water a day before it to make sure we got a positive result!      
                                                                         
My mother was a wise woman. I later found out from an Australian          
naturopath that barley is known to be a kidney cleanser, and she happily  
downed glasses of it at a meal we had in a coffee-shop here.              
                                                                         
Barley is good for your intestinal health too. Try to eat the barley      
grains you find in your drink or sweet broth with fu chook (beancurd skin)
and ginkgo nuts.                                                          
                                                                         
It's high in fibre which feeds the friendly bacteria in the colon and    
helps speed up the transit of fecal matter in it. In this way it helps    
prevent haemorrhoids and colon cancer.                                    
                                                                         
The propionic acid and beta glucan from barley's insoluble fibre also help
lower cholesterol and prevent the formation of gallstones.                
                                                                         
Eating barley regularly is a preventive step against heart disease as,    
besides the fibre content, it is also high in niacin, a B vitamin good for
lowering cholesterol.                                                    
                                                                         
Diabetics should eat more barley as the fibre will prevent blood sugar    
levels from rising too high. It also provides relief from constipation or
diarrhoea for those suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome.              
                                                                         
Barley is rich in selenium which prevents cancer and relieves symptoms of
asthma and arthritis. It is a good source of manganese, copper and        
phosphorous.                                                              
                                                                         
Malt sugar comes from sprouted barley which, when fermented, is an        
ingredient in beer and other alcoholic beverages.                        
                                                                         
Barley, whose Latin name is " hordeum vulgare" , has been cultivated for  
more than 10,000 years.                                                  
Since ancient times, barley has been used for healing purposes and has    
been known to the Chinese, Egyptians, Greeks and Romans. Athletes in      
Greece and Rome in those days were known to eat barley bread to give them
strength.                                                                
                                                                         
Besides the usual things we do with barley, I enjoy having it in a western
soup. The larger pearl barley is used and I love the sticky bite of it.  
Here's a recipe for barley soup:                                          
                                                                         
Barley soup with roasted garlic                                          
                                                                         
1 cup pearl barley                                                        
5 cloves whole garlic, roasted

1 tsps sea salt or to taste                                              
1 tbsp chopped parsley                                                    
                                                                         
Method                                                                    
                                                                         
1. Wash barley and soak it in a bowl of water for three hours. Drain.    
                                                                         
2. Heat oil in pan and fry onions. Add carrots and celery, then the barley
and fry for three minutes.                                                
                                                                         
3. Add chicken stock, pepper and roasted garlic and simmer over low heat  
for at least an hour, or until barley is soft.                            
                                                                         
4. Add salt to taste and serve the soup garnished with chopped parsley.
