Good thread and info. Right on time for immune inhancements as tonight the moon is in Cancer. Cancer rules the "thymus gland",the thymus gland as a main gland that provides the "T" cells, to help to fight the different bacteria, viruses, sicknesses, that eventually will enter into the physical body.

Herbs and Colours
Even herbs have been found to increase the benevolent energies of planets.

Black pepper, ginger, clove etc are good for Sun. They are primarily stimulants and increase digestion, promote circulation etc.
Cool, sweet and salty herbs like sandalwood, Shatavari etc are good for the Moon. Such herbs are mainly demulcent and emollient and are a tonic for the lungs.
Warm, pungent and stimulant herbs like garlic, asafoetidas etc are recommended for Mars.

Mild and harmonising herbs like bhringaraj, jatamansi etc effectively increase the energies of Mercury. Such herbs work a miracle on the human nerves and mind, helping to maintain a perfect balance of all the cosmic life forces.

Olive oil, sesame oil and ashwagandha are recommended for Jupiter.
Lotus, rose and saffron work miracle on Venus.
Such herbs work on our hearts, kidneys and human reproductive system, especially the female.
Colours too have miraculous healing properties and powers to neutralise the malevolent influences of planets on human health and mind. Colours can be used in the same way as gems, as colours too correspond to specific planets. Given below are some of the colours and their corresponding planets:

This sight gives you a list of herbs and treatments for different ailments.

http://www.astrologycom.com/ayurveda4.html

The creepers and plants used to counterbalance the negative influences of astral positions are believed to grow under the direct influences of the planets. Accordingly they have the power to fight against the harmful effects of the planets on human lives.

The quintessence of ancient Indian Ayurveda is medical astrology and its emphasis on the astro-occult treatment of diseases.

The Moringa tree is one of the most incredible plants I have ever encountered. This may sound sensationalist, but Moringa’s nutritional and medicinal properties has the potential to end malnutrition, starvation, as well as prevent and heal many diseases and maladies worldwide. Moringa is truly a miracle plant, and a divine gift for the nourishing and healing of man. This plant has so many uses and special features, it is hard to know where to begin sharing what I have learned about this wonderful plant.

Moringa is the sole genus in the flowering plant family Moringaceae. The genus Moringa in turn is made up of 12 species. The species most common, and which is the main subject of this book is the speices called “Moringa Oleifera.” Moringa Oleifera is found in many tropical and sub-tropical regions. Moringa can be grown in the even the harshest and driest of soils, where barely anything else will grow. In fact, one of the nicknames of Moringa is “never die” due to its incredible ability to survive harsh weather and even drought.

The most incredible thing about Moringa is the amount of nutritional and medicinal chemicals and compounds found in this plant. The chart below will give you a quick view of some of the notable nutrients contained in this plant.

As seen in the chart above, not only does Moringa contain vitamin A, vitamin C, Calcium, Potassium, Iron, and Protein, it contains it in high amounts that are easily digested and assimilated by the human body. The chart above highlights some of the commonly known nutrients needed by the human body. Moringa has a host of anti-oxidants, in combinations which are highly beneficial and easily absorbed. Moringa is said to contain 539 known compounds which according to traditional African and Indian medicine (Ayurvedic) is said to prevent of 300 diseases and maladies.

Marshmallow, Carpenter's Square, and Mullein, have long been noted as the remedies for swollen glands of the neck, under-arms, breast and reproductive areas. They provide a rapid and effective immunity for these areas.

Sweet Root (Calamus Root) is the most prized remedy of the North American Indian Nation, the Chippewas, and was given to those who were called "hopeless". And they got well, even when it was a viral problem! Black Cohosh and Sarsaparilla are not only poison antidotes for snake bite and venereal disease, they also neutralize all manner of poisons. Bacteria, viruses and fungus, including infectious yeasts, not only give off poisons that make you feel terrible, they also weaken you even more by attacking the immune system itself. Black Cohosh and Sarsaparilla handle this attack as well. Lapacho corrects inflammation of the reproductive organs and glands. The fact that the nutrition of some people is not just bad, it is appalling, makes a body which lacks tissue integrity and the perfect breeding ground for infections, which roll over a feeble immune system that just cannot cope with the invasion. Reverse all this, eat decent food instead of "junk foods", and build your immune system so you can live well and without as much fear. Help your immune system and it will help you.

COMBINATION: Juniper Berry, Mullein, Sweet Root, Carpenter's Square, Black Cohosh, Sarsaparilla, Lapacho.

DOSE: 10 to 40 drops, 3 times per day, to build active immunity. 20 to 40 drops per day as a maintenance.

Astragalus is rich in polysaccharides, and increases the activity of many different kinds of immune system cells, including macrophages, and T-lymphocytes. It works by stimulating almost every part of immune system activity. Astralagus works directly in the bone marrow, where immune cells are created. It also works in lymph tissue, stimulating their growth into active immune cells, releasing these stronger cells into the body.

Loving this thread, y'all.
Purely delightful!

Don't forget the Grapefruit Seed Extract... 10 to 15 drops in a pitcher of water turns the water alkaline and evens out YOUR ph balance.(Lemons in water do the same thing...)

Healthy kidneys are important to immunal strength and so is clearing mucus from the body:

Before Breakfast;Kidney-Liver flush

The Kidney-Liver Flush lasts for seven days.Colon Ease and Liquid Kyolic can be purchased in a health food store.
Mix together in a blendor

2tbs,Colon Ease or cold-pressed extra virigin olive oil with equal parts of castor oil
12 drops Liquid Kyolic garlic,or 2 fresh garlic cloves,crushed
Juice of 1 lemon or lime,or 1-2 tbs.Org anic apple cider vineger
1 pinch cayenne pepperdo not use if you have high blood pressure)
8 oz warm water(purified or distilled)

Blend and drink up-Queen Afua

Mucus clearing drink

Take two grapefruits,or three oranges,and juice them.Grapefruits are known to bring down mucus.This fresh juice will help purge out the womb.You can mix the juices too;have one grapefruit and two oranges.
If your skin has a tendacy to break out,it means your blood is impure and your colon is impacted.You may want to slow down your cleansing reime a bit.You may have one day of grapefruits and oranges,and the next day you may have pure fresh apple juice and pear juice.This is because apple juice and pear juice are alkaline and purify the blood.When you alternate them with stronger juices such as fresh orange or grape fruit juice,you wont have a heavy detox comming out through your skin.However,if your skin is breaking out,try a mixtur of lemon juice,cold pressed extra virgin olive oil,and fresh grated ginger as your morning drink.Another alternative to the citrus juices is cranberry juice,which has a lot of fire.Use the unsweetened kind you get at the health food store,because the sweetened kind has been treated in addition to having sugar in it.Sugar deteriorates the brain,the bones,and the nervous sytem.-Queen Afua

I remember Dr. Sebi saying that the ability for the body to be infected by and maintain an invading organism was held specifically by bodily mucus.

Good stuff, Peace.

True,Queen Afua says the same:

How Mucus affects your body:

As ive(the author)mentioned,mucus forming foods include devitalized white-flour products such as white bread,muffins,bagels,and pasta,as well as white rice,white potatoes,and dairy foods(such as cheese milk and ice cream)In fact,the flesh of animals is a major cause of mucus accumaltion.Daily consumption of mucus-forming foods can debilitate you and put you to sleep,physcologically,physical ly,and spiritually.Also tumors and cysts are basically mucus that has solidified into a mass.

Mucus in your womb causes fibroid tumors in the uterus,cysts in the vagina,vaginal discharges,heavy bleeding and clotting.The larger the quantity of mucus creating foods eaten,the longer mucus related bleeding continues(5 to 8 days).The lelvel of the mucus trapped within the womb is indicated by how long and how heavy your monthly blood flow is.

If mucus has accumulated in the brain,you may develope headaches,poor memory,possible even tumors in the brain

Mucus in the eyes causes cateracts,poor vision,and red eyes

Mucus in your nose causes sinus congestion,colds and hay fever

Mucus in the throat causes thyroid problems,colds and loss of voice.

Mucus in the lungs causes asthma,influenza,bronchitis,an d low endurance.

Mucus in your colon causes constipation (Queen Afua-sacred women)

In the occult science of the vodun mysteries,the diviner can mix plants that are ruled by certain planets and turn them into a powder used to heal or achieve the desired results.

For example, certain plants have certain attributes, a beautiful plant will be gentle and bring harmony ,a thorny plant will bring agressivity and tension. Some plants may compliment each other and yet other plants may be like enemies and bring discord. It must also be remembered that many plants have associations with the planets. We all know that the cypress tree has affinity with Saturn, for example. By mastering the knowledge of plants and planets, their uses and ascendan, the powders derived from them can be utilized in Voodoo Rituals or even on their own to produce desired results.

FULL MOON healing.
http://www.fortunecity.com/roswell/chaney/191...
The Full Moon lasts about three days. It is a very intense phase. Many women still ovulate with the
Full Moon. This is the time to apply the most powerful herbs. Use cayenne capsules to
treat infections of any kind. Goldenseal is a well-known herbal antibiotic. Echinacea and lomatium
are anti-viral. Dong quai is an excellent herb for female hormonal fluctuations.
Energy healing work during the Full Moon is very powerful. On the energetic level, it acts like a
magnifying mirror. The strong lunar energy pulls everything out of hiding and reflects it back at us.
This is often the time during an acute illness when people feel their worst. The Full Moon intensifies
whatever else is going on. Often people aren't even aware that they're sick until the Full Moon hits.
This is also an excellent time for psychological therapy. Emotions seem closer to the surface than
usual and social inhibitions melt away.

The african,native american shaman/healer understood that everything in your body had an electro magnetic force feild to it,so he knew by studying nature that there is something in nature that coresponds or is equevelant to the electro magnetic force feild in your body.So whenever you were sick or had any ailments he would find whatever herb,plant or whatever forces of nature that would corespond to that partcular electro magnetic force feild in the body.

Today starts the New moon cycle,a time of rejuvenation.On top of that,it's in Virgo,even more of a good incentive to begin a new health program.

http://www.jonbarron.org/strong-immunity-prog...

It has been known for centuries that if you time the "brewing" of a tincture to the phases of the moon, the resulting tincture is stronger. Specifically, if you start your tincture on the new moon and squeeze it on the full moon, it will be 10-15% stronger than an untimed tincture. This certainly sounds magical and mystical, particularly because no one has ever known why it works. Nevertheless it has been demonstrated over and over again that those tinctures made in accordance with the phases of the moon are demonstrably stronger.

Incidentally, no commercial manufacturer "brews to the moon" because it takes too long and can only be started on one day a month -- on the day of the new moon.

SOME HERBS TO THAT HELP STRENGTHEN THE IMMUNE SYSTEM:

*Pau d'arco

Pau d'arco (Tabebuia heptophylla) comes from the rain forests of Brazil and other areas of South America. This amazing herb nourishes the body's defense system and helps protect against pathogenic organisms. It has been used for centuries to improve immune function, detoxify, and reduce pain throughout the body -- especially in the joints.

Research has shown that it contains a natural antibacterial agent, has a healing effect on the entire body, cleanses the blood, and kills viruses.

*Olive Leaf Extract*

Olive leaf extract has a long history of being used against illnesses in which microorganisms play a major role. In more recent years, a drug company discovered that in vitro (test tube) an extract from olive leaf (calcium elenolate) was effective in eliminating a very broad range of organisms, including bacteria, viruses, parasites, and yeast/mold/fungus

*Cordyceps*
Many of the compounds found in the medicinal mushrooms such as Reishi, Maitake, and Cordyceps are classified as Host Defense Potentiators (HDP). These compounds include: active hemicellulose (AHCC), polysaccharides, polysaccharide-peptides, nucleosides, triterpeniods, complex starches, and other metabolites. It is believed that combinations of these products target and strengthen the human immune system as well as aid in neuron transmission, metabolism, hormonal balance and the transport of nutrients and oxygen. Through a host-mediated (T cell) immune mechanism, they help the body regulate the development of lymphoid stem cells and other important defense responses.

-Cats claw- is another good all around herb(or bark rather)to strengthen the immune system
http://www.suite101.com/content/cats-claw-alk...

Cat's Claw (called Una de Gato in Spanish) is a tropical, thick, woody vine that grows slowly to several feet long, mainly in the Peruvian rain forest. In Peru, Cat’s Claw has been a popular herb for over 2,000 years because of its reputedly unlimited curative properties due to the active organic compounds called alkaloids found in it. These alkaloids are antiviral, antiinflammatory, immuno-stimulating, and act as antioxidants.

Cat’s Claw is used to treat, acne, diabetes, infections, allergies, chronic fatigue syndrome, ulcers, gastritis, numerous bowel and intestinal disorder, bursitis, arthritis, rheumatism, cancer, lupus, toxic poisoning, PMS and irregularities of the female cycle. It is also used for recovery from childbirth and as a contraceptive. Other uses include reducing inflammation associated with asthma, allergies, tendonitis, Crohn's disease, tumors, parasites, diverticulitis and leaky gut syndrome. Studies have shown Cat’s Claw may have positive effects on, and can boost, the body's immune system to improve response to HIV, genital herpes and other viral and respiratory infections.
