Raju Guides: Removing gallstones naturally…

leave a comment »

By: Dr. Lai Chiu Nan
It has worked for many. If it works for you please pass on the good news. Dr. Lai is not charging for it, so we should make it free for everyone. Your reward is when someone, through your word of mouth, benefits from the regime. Gallstones may not be everyone’s concern. But they should be because we all have them. Moreover, gallstones may lead to cancer. “Cancer is never the first illness,” Dr. Lai points out. “Usually, there are a lot of other problems leading to cancer.
In my research in China , I came across some materials which say that people with cancer usually have stones. We all have gallstones. It’s a matter of big or small, many or few.
One of the symptoms of gallstones is a feeling of bloatedness after a heavy meal. You feel like you can’t digest the food. If it gets more serious, you feel pain in the liver area.” So if you think you have gallstones, Dr. Lai offers the following method to remove them naturally.
The treatment is also good for those with a weak liver, because the liver and gallbladder are closely linked.
Regimen:
1. For the first five days, take four glasses of apple juice every day. Or eat four or five apples, whichever you prefer. Apple juice softens the gallstones. During the five days, eat normally.
2. On the sixth day, take no dinner.
3. At 6 PM, take a teaspoon of Epsom salt (magnesium sulphate) with a glass of warm water.
4. At 8 PM, repeat the same. Magnesium sulphate opens the gallbladder ducts.
5. At 10 PM, take half cup olive oil (or sesame oil) with half cup fresh lemon juice. Mix it well and drink it. The oil lubricates the stones to ease their passage.
The next morning, you will find green stones in your stools. “Usually they float,” Chiu Nan notes. “You might want to count them. I have had people who passes 40, 50 or up to 100 stones. Very many.”
“Even if you don’t have any symptom s of gallstones, you still might have some. It’s always good to give your gall bladder a clean-up now and then.

Raju Guides: Fruit juice containing cabbage

leave a comment »

This, its creator claim, will make you feel slimmer.
Take three peeled oranges, half a cabbage, half a lemon’s juice, a little ginger and water. Put all the above mentioned ingredients in the mixer and juice them. Avoid adding sugar to this nutritious concoction. Ginger and cabbage are great waistline busters so don’t get affected by their taste.
If you have a powerful juicer, you won’t get the lumps in your mouth. So go for the food grade material juicers that come with the cutting edge technology. These are easy to maintain and are equipped with a firm vacuum base.

Raju Guides: Lessons From Life (Ongoing)

leave a comment »

  • Success has less to do with hard work and more to do with massive focus on your few best opportunities.
  • Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.
  • Why resist change when it’s the main source of your growth?
  • Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper.
  • When in doubt, just take the next small step.
  • Life is too short – enjoy it.
  • The more you invest in growing and developing your mindset and way of seeing the world, the more everything you touch transforms in a breathtakingly positive way.
  • Live with the 3 E’s – Energy, Enthusiasm and Empathy.
  • Make time to pray.
  • Pursuing perfection really does matter (in a world highly accepting of mediocrity).
  •  Spending full days with zero technology to refuel or do important work is a game-changer.
  • Doing something super-nice for at least one stranger a day gives them a gift and an even larger one to yourself.
  • Adore your parents. You’ll miss them when they’re gone.
  • Most TV is toxic.
  • Read more books than you did last year.
  • Have the discipline to clean out all the energy-draining people in your life. You really do rise or fall to the level of your associations.
  • Doing huge dreams we have never done can be frightening. Yet when we push to the edges of our limits, our limits expand.
  • Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.
  • Pay off your credit cards every month.
  • Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.
  • Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. & while you walk, SMILE. It is the ultimate antidepressant.
  • Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.
  • Drink green tea and plenty of water.
  • Eat blueberries, broccoli, and almonds.
  • Try to make at least three people smile each day.
  • Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
  • Sleep for seven hours.
  • Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.
  • Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Forgive them for everything!
  • Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
  • You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
  • Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present.
  • Take a 10-30 minutes walk daily and while you walk, smile.
  • Help the needy,Be generous ! Be a ‘Giver’ not a ‘Taker’.
  • You don’t have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.
  • Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone.
  • Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
  • Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.
  • Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
  • Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
  • If you don’t make the time for yourself to get inspired, no one around you will ever be inspired.
  • Integrity is more valuable than income.
  • Talk less. Do more.
  • Model Mandela and you’ll find at the end of your life you lived an awesome one.
  • Learn to love yourself. It’s the great rule for being loving with other people.
  • Your environment (your home, your office, the magazines you read etc.) dramatically affects your levels of achievement.
  • To become successful, first learn how to be happy. Too many think that the route to happiness is to get successful. Untrue.
  • Getting ultra-fit lifts every other area of your life.
  • Self-belief is so incredibly important. Because if you don’t believe you can achieve a vision/goal, then you won’t even start to do the work needed to achieve that vision/goal.
  •  Our biggest enemy is our own self-doubt. We really can achieve extraordinary things in our lives. But we sabotage our greatness because of our fear.
  •  Drink more water.
  •  Join a mastermind group. It’s just remarkable what being in a room full of people who are smarter than yourself does for your performance.
  • Related to the above, remember what Dennis Kimbro once said: “If you’re the smartest one of your friends, you need new friends.”
  •  Dopamine is the elite performers best friend. [I really dug deep into the neurobiology of high-achievement in this past year and discovered that this neurotransmitter is the key to motivation…and it is released when we push our envelopes and do things that are difficult].
  •  You rarely go wrong when you trust yourself.
  •  If you try to do it all yourself you get very little done. The most productive people set the dream and then hand it over swiftly to a project manager to execute with precision.
  • Become one of the rare people who don’t know how to quit (unless it really is time to quit).
  •  Smile. It truly makes a difference to the people around you.
  • Get rid of anything that isn’t useful. Clutter weighs you down in many ways.
  • Whatever doesn’t kill you really does make you stronger.

  •  Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
  • Over-prepare, then go with the flow.
  • Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to wear purple.
  • No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
  • Frame every so-called disaster with these words ‘In five years, will this matter?’
  • Always choose life.
  • Forgive.
  • What other people think of you is none of your business.
  •  Just because excellent manners are not so common doesn’t mean that excellent manners are not incredibly important.
  •  It’s so much better to fail trying than to not even get into the game.
  • Music just makes life a whole lot better.
  •  You can change the world or you can worry about fitting in but you just can’t do both.
  •  Change is hard at first, messy in the middle and beautiful at the end.
  •  The real key to getting great things done is stop doing so many good things.
  •  Small little details done excellently and consistently stack up into something the world sees as Mastery.
  •  Spend time in nature to renew and refuel.
  •  Less entertainment, more education.

  • Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.
  • Call your family often.
