Foundation of Good Health Lies in Your Digestive System

A few days ago, in the holy month of Ramadhan, I was purging from 11AM up to after Isyak (the late evening prayer). Every few minutes, I would hurry to the toilet. At times, I did not even make it to the toilet. I lied down in bed, the whole day. Any slightest bowel movement would see me rushing off like a squirrel!

It could have been the food that I had bought the previous night at the bazaar. It was heated and eaten for Sahur (is taken before the beginning of Fajr. Zaid bin Thaabit said, ‘We took the Sahoor with the Prophet. Then he stood for prayer.' Anas asked, ‘What was the interval between the Sahoor and the Adhaan?’ He replied, ‘The interval was sufficient to recite fifty verses of the Qur’aan.’ (saheeh of bukhaari)).

It could be due to unhygienic preparation or bad ingredients. However, as I went on purging, I did not break my fast. Even when I did, I purposely did not want to take any medication to stop the purging. I broke my fast during Maghrib with dates / kurma and took plenty of mineral water.

Why I had not wanted to stop the purging? It is because my body system was trying to cleanse itself of the poison and bacteria that had overtaken my stomach. Stopping it would mean stopping the cleansing process.

A simple herbal tea from HPA did calm down my stomach. If you are purging, do not eat, as eating would add the load to your stomach. Drink plenty of liquid or mineral water, you may add a pinch of edible rock salt to a bottle of 600ml of water.

"In our daily lives,many people experience gastrointestinal discomfort for so long, they eventually adjust to it. Some feel their digestive system’s poor function is normal.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Your foundation of good health lies in proper digestive function. Assimilation of vitamins, minerals, proteins, and essential fatty acids from the foods you eat is essential for you to stay healthy.
If you are unable to digest and absorb crucial nutrients, your overall health will suffer… not just your gastrointestinal system.
In fact, you may not know that the majority of your immune system lies within your intestinal lining. The bottom line… your gastrointestinal tract is your first line of defense against invading pathogens, parasites, and infections." excerpt from Dr. Mercola.

Are You Still Brushing Your Teeth With Flouride Toothpaste?

Many of us have been brought up with the idea that flourides are good for the teeth. It supposedly prevent tooth decay.

Well, research have been done by US doctors. Are you still using flouride based tooth paste?
If you are, do take note of the not so pleasant side effects of flouride:

a) Accumulates in your bones, causing them to be brittle and easily fractured

b) Inactivates some of your enzyme systems

c) Disrupts your immune system, causing it to attack normal working tissues in your body

d) Accelerates your aging process

e) Causes cellular and genetic damage

f) Damages your tooth enamel by hardening the outer surface

The news get worse, when flouride is also added to drinking water in some countries to reduce cavities.. but as a result,

First, fluoride is one of the most toxic substances on earth, on par with arsenic and lead. It has no proven biological use inside the human body (teeth included). There is no minimum daily requirement for fluoride. And second, it is a cumulative poison. Only about half of what we consume is excreted.

The other half collects in the teeth and bones, making them dense, but brittle. Those little white spots visible on the teeth of many children are called dental fluorosis, a condition which not only predisposes them to decay, but also provides a sign that systemic fluoride poisoning is taking place. Dental fluorosis appears to serve as a red flag for future bone fractures as well.

The neurotoxic nature of fluoride is also linked to motor dysfunction, IQ deficits and learning disabilities. In the year 2000, a group of Boston physicians concluded:

"Studies in animals and human populations suggest that fluoride exposure, at levels that are experienced by a significant proportion of the population whose drinking water is fluoridated, may have adverse impacts on the developing brain."
