The Truth About Moringa Oleifera
Would you believe there is a tree that heals illnesses?
Moringa oleifera is a tree conveyed from the mind of God to the hands of man. It was perceived by the National Institutes of Health as the Botanical of the Year for 2007, and adulated again in 2011 and 2012. It is esteemed worldwide for its capacity to treat more than 300 illnesses. [i] It can hold high groupings of electrolyte minerals, permitting it to stay inside hydrated in the driest of conditions. Africans have respected it with names that mean: “Never Die,” and “The Only Thing that Grows in the Dry Season,” and “Mother’s Milk.” I believe it’s protected to say this plant has spared a greater number of lives in third world nations than whatever other. Why do I say this? This stunning tree is equipped for conveying what the body needs and these enzymatically dynamic amino corrosive groupings might essentially not exist in the natural pecking order anyplace else, and that is only the tip of the wholesome icy mass with regards to Moringa oleifera.

Our own “humanized” sustenance supply no more bolsters us well nutritiously. Our nourishment is encouraging, and tastes great, yet to the extent our cells are concerned, a lot of what we eat is over-prepared, denatured and acidic, and winds up draining our bodies—victimizing us as opposed to sustaining us. Today’s western eating routine has twofold the caloric admission of a purchaser in 1965 and we are accepting 75% less supplement esteem for current calories devoured. Looking for day by day, quality supplement supplementation is no more an alternative yet a prerequisite for wellbeing. We all need to supplement our weight control plans in the most proficient and conservative means conceivable.
When we consider the rate of sickness influencing the 317,000,000 individuals in America (215 million overweight or fat, 50 million with coronary illness, 45 million with constant cerebral pains, 44 million with osteoporosis, 37 million with joint inflammation, 30 million with sinus issues, 26 million with diabetes, 79 million pre-diabetes, 12 million with malignancy, 6 million with Alzheimer’s) and we comprehend the relationship in the middle of nourishment and malady, it appears glaringly evident however we need to ask how could this happen. Hippocrates will be legitimized and proven right: food is indeed our medicine and the answer to disease.
The question which remains answered is why is that American Medical Schools teach very little about nutrition and what they do teach, students are not taking seriously?
Now is the time for we the people to take our own lives into our own hands and do and research what actually helps to be healed which is food.
There are so many testimonies and the one that comes to mind is the amazing Dr. Terry Wahl’s who cured herself using the Paleo Diet and fed her mitrochondria and is now going around the world speaking without a wheelchair and does not even look like what doctors said she would not be able to do, she proved them very wrong with nutrition which is not only a cure, but a healer of the mitochondria which is reality to curing lives.
I am not a doctor, physician, scientist, none of the above; but I am doing my homework and finding ways to help myself and to help others believe in healing and believe in God’s creations for healing our bodies, mind and souls.
Amazingly, the leaves of this extraordinary tree contain 7 times vitamin C found in oranges, 4 times the calcium in milk, 4 times the vitamin A in carrots, 2 times the protein of yogurt, 25 times the iron in spinach, and 3 times the potassium in bananas.
Please forgive me, and I cut and paste this table and wanted it to be in its original form which gives some good information and hope you will share this incredible information.
The real mystery is how this four thousand year-old panacea plant went missing and disappeared from the nutritional horizon. Fortunately it has reappeared. As a matter of fact, the Bethesda, Maryland-based International Eye Foundation is now using Moringa, with its high content of beta-carotene, converting to Vitamin A in the body, to combat childhood blindness. Doctors are using Moringa oleifera to treat diabetes in West Africa and high blood pressure in India.
