Wassail

speedy_wassailIngredients
2 apples seeded, cored and quartered
2 Tbsp tupelo honey
¼ orange peel with pith
1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp ground cloves
2 C warm water
Preparation
Put all in a high speed blender (Blendtec) on soup and enjoy this hot. This makes quite a bit. Cut it in half and it serves two with a wee bit leftover for seconds.

The origin of wassail.
In the year 800, England was invaded by Danish Vikings who, for a brief period, took over all of England. Eventually they were pushed all the way back up into the northernmost portion of England, a place called The Danelaw because up there the Danes had autonomy and made their own laws and spoke Danish. The Danegeld was a tax collected from all the English citizens, and this money was paid to the Danes in exchange for them not invading England further. The Danelaw consisted of three counties: County Durham, Westmoreland, and Northumberland.

These Danish Vikings had a favorite wintertime drink consisting of mulled hot apple cider, and when they drank a cupful, they gave a salute,
was heil! ( or to your health!).”
Over the centuries this drink became popular throughout England. Eventually the term
Ves Heil! changed to Was Hail! (to which someone replied Drink Hail!). And the drink became known as wassail.

Almond Milk

almondmilk

Ingredients
2 C raw soaked almonds

Preparation
2 cups of raw almonds soaked 10 – 12 hours in 3 cups of mineral, filtered, or tap water allowed to sit overnight to dissipate any residual chlorine.
Pour 3 cups of water over 2 cups of raw almonds soaking overnight to rid of phytic acid. Rinse the almonds under running water in a sieve. Place these pre-soaked almonds with  3 cups of fresh water in a high speed blend [like a vita mixer]. Blend until it resembles a thick cream. Line a large sieve or colander with a double thickness cheesecloth or unbleached muslin, single thickness. Place this over a wide bowl and allow it to drain. Grab the corners of the cloth; hold together securely and squeeze to extract all of the almond milk, much like squeezing a tea bag. The remaining pulp can be used in raw candies, cookies or as a filler to give desserts a cookie like consistency. Transfer the almond milk to a container and refrigerate up to 3 days.

This makes a delicious almond milk. The almond milk will keep refrigerated for 3 days. If you wish to use a machine to make a grain, seed, or nut milks, the soy milk maker machine heats the grain beverage milk product slightly. It requires  overnight pre-soaking of  the nuts, grains or almonds. One can produce fresh almond milk  for a fraction of the cost of commercial varieties and the taste is far superior. Use the left over almond pulp  for cooking, baking, or even as a luxurious facial or body scrub.  Hard nuts, like almonds, are better when soaked for approximately 4 hours and rinsed; this makes the milk easier to digest. You can use both blanched and un-blanched almonds along with almond pieces, slivered almonds or even mix and match with your other favorite nuts. Un-blanched almonds produce a darker, nuttier milk, whereas blanched almonds produce a whiter, creamier milk. The total amount of almonds used is approximately 1 cup; this will fill the filter cup about 2/3 full. Some people prefer unheated almond milk.  Automatic soy  milk Maker is a machine useful for making almond, barley, or rice milk. It gives you the choice – simply push the start button to produce cooked milk, or use the motor button to grind the nuts, producing an unheated almond milk.

BlenTec blender (high speed blender) has another recipe for almond milk. Soak the almonds overnight. Here is a youtube video.
Ingredients
1 C almonds soaked

Preparation
After soaking 1 cup of almonds overnight, strain and rinse the almonds. Add 4 cups of water and 1 tsp tupelo honey. Blend on high whole fruit. Press blend again until mixture is totally smooth. No need to strain this almond milk recipe.

Solé

Solesaltsingle
Consider that if you keep adding salt to a glass of water you’ll get to a point where the water becomes super-salty or saturated with salt. Once the water becomes saturated with salt the salt will just sit on the bottom of the glass without dissolving any further. This is what happens with Himalayan Crystal Salt Solé. It is, super mineralized salty water.

Preparation
Place 1 inch of Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt stones in a glass jar, preferably one with a lid. Add 2 to 3 inches of good quality artesian or spring water above the stones, completely covering the crystals with water. Allow this to sit overnight.

Once all the salt crystals have dissolved, add a few more salt crystals to the water. Your Himalayan Crystal Salt™ Solé is ready when the water becomes fully saturated with salt and cannot hold any more. The salt will no longer dissolve at this stage but sink toward the bottom.

sole2-2
Each morning, before eating or drinking anything, add a teaspoon (or use a few drops) of the Himalayan Crystal Salt Solé to a glass of artesian or spring water. Or if you prefer, prepare the glass of water the night before, leave it at your bedside and drink it in the morning. Your body will receive the energetic vibration pattern of the Original Himalayan Crystal Salt™ and hold it for 24 hours. Keep the container covered to prevent the water from evaporating. Otherwise, no special storage is needed. The fully saturated Original Himalayan Crystal Salt™ Solé will keep forever. Salt is a natural anti-bacterial and natural fungicide. It simply cannot spoil or go bad.

Just a drop or two in a full glass of water will give you a homeopathic dose of solé daily. We have been told to restrict salt with elevated blood pressure. Solé made with Himalayan pink crystal salt is different. It contains all the minerals in the exact same proportions as the human body. By diluting a glass of spring water with a few drops of solé crystal salt solution, one succeeds in making their own inexpensive mineral water. This particular salt does not raise some PKD’rs blood pressure. Use of Himalayan pink salt is also known as halite. Continue to limit the amount of salt to ⅛ teaspoon for the entire day.

Saffron Tea

SAFFRONSaffron tea ingredients
¼ tsp saffron threads
1 C water

Preparation
Simmer on the stove top in a glass or stainless steel or ceramic pot (approximately 7 – 15 minutes) until it is reduced to a half cup of liquid. Strain, cool and sip it.

What does Saffron do?
Saffron eases the pain from cystic organs. It helps to maintain the integrity of the walls of the blood vessels so they do not burst as easily. Saffron stimulates the body to lay down blood vessels around any blockage or bursting. Cysts will bleed if blood pressure is elevated; or if the kidneys or the liver is enlarged with numerous cysts; or if there is some trauma to cystic organs. Diminish episodes of bleeding into a cyst and the associated pain by keeping blood pressure well controlled 100/70 -110/70 – 120/80; by keeping cystic kidneys and cystic liver small (sometimes this is not possible); and by minimizing trauma. I would think if we could do one more thing, this too might help diminish bursting cysts and that is to maintain the blood vessel wall intact; to maintain the integrity of the blood vessel walls. This is another thing that saffron can help accomplish. Saffron helps to:
1. Ease the pain from a cystic liver or cystic kidneys.
2. Lowers blood pressure
3. Diminishes spontaneous bursting of tiny capillaries
4. Helps diminish bursting cysts
5. Stimulates the body to lay down new blood vessels
6. Protects the integrity of DNA
7. Helps a cystic liver by increasing the metabolism of estrogen through the liver
8. Aphrodisiac effect
Medical articles on saffron’s uses:
Saffron effects Uterus and estrus cycle 1964
Saffron both platelet aggregation inducer and inhibitor 1990
Saffron anti-tumor activity
Saffron lowers rat blood pressure. 2003
Curcurmin (saffron) coupled with garlic has an increased anti cancer activity 2004

Melon Juice

DSC00779
Ingredients
Cut and skin melon

Preparation
Juice any smoothed skinned melon, either watermelon or honeydew both make refreshing drinks and both are very alkaline forming helping ailing kidneys. If you do not have a juicer, try a blender, and blend the melon fruit to liquify it. If you are lucky enough to find local canteloupe, musk melon or a local melon with ridges, be sure of its local source. Distance with ridged melons gives the skin a bit of fungus and this is passed onto the eater through a knife piercing the fungus skin. A refreshing drink comes from the tropics is made by mixing young coconut water with local cantaloupe juice, a refreshing delight.

Orange Juice

orangejuice
Naringenin found in citrus fruits is said to help diminish cyst growth.
Ingredients
2 oranges

Preparation
Usually about 2 oranges is enough to make fresh orange juice for one individual. One of the sweetest varieties I have ever tasted is the Valencia orange. It has a very short growing season, lasting only about a month. Slice the orange in two and twirl the orange against a cone to obtain the juice. Orange juice is high in citrate, potassium citrate. Citrate is utilized by the kidneys for energy.

Commercially Prepared Juices
Individuals have asked about bottled juices or commercially prepared juices. My feeling is that freshly squeezed is always better, and best if drunk within twenty minutes of preparing it to obtain more of the nutrients. I personally received the biggest growth of my cystic liver while undergoing an organic juice fast. I mistakenly drank bottled organic juice that had been slightly pasteurized. In addition to a ferment beginning also the methanol is highest in bottled juices. It was like alcohol to my polycystic liver body, the slight ferment was so strong. Try a side by side taste comparison test for yourself. Drink 1 ounce of freshly squeezed orange juice prepared by you and drink 1 ounce of commercial orange juice. The difference to my taste is astounding and says it all.

Roasted Grain Beverage

draft_lens21232854module168371326photo_641791cc4bad89023e8a4
Ingredients:
1 Tbsp spelt berries
1 Tbsp buckwheat
3 Tbsp brown rice
2 Tbsp adzuki beans
1 Tbsp chickpeas
1 Tbsp chicory
1 Tbsp olive oil

Preparation
In a pan, roast grains and beans separately until well browned. Mix together and add oil. Cool and grind into powder. Prepare beverage to desired strength pouring boiling water over all.

Ingredients Spelt Kaffee
1 C. soaked spelt grain

Roasting Spelt
Roast spelt in a cast iron skillet until brown all over. Transfer all but 2 tablespoons of the kernels to a bowl, and continue roasting the remaining kernels until they are very dark in color, but not burned. Remove the kernels and mix with the lighter brown ones.

Prepare Spelt Roasted Beverage
To make 2 cups of spelt coffee, place 2 cups of water in a 1-quart saucepan; bring to a boil. Add 3 heaping tablespoons of the roasted kernels, and boil for about 10 minutes, or until the water is brown in color. Strain the brew, reserving the kernels, and serve. Add a few SPELT kafee kernels to the old kernels each day, until some kernels start to fall apart. Then discard and roast a new batch.

Hildegard von Bingen
“Spelt (Dinkel) is the best grain, warming, lubricating and high in nutritional value. It is better tolerated by the body than any other grain. Spelt provides the consumer with good flesh and good blood and confers a cheerful disposition. It provides a happy mind and a joyful spirit. No matter how you eat spelt, either bread or in other foods, it is good and easy to digest… If someone is ill boil some spelt, mix it with egg and this will heal him like a fine ointment… Spelt porridge, spelt bread and spelt coffee constitute the ideal breakfast.. Spelt is the food of the future.”––Hildegard von Bingen (composer, scientist, writer) 1133 A.D. She was a woman. If she had not been part of a nunnery, she could never have written her books on how food heals. Woman were not allowed to be learned. She had visions and was taught much of her knowledge through this.

Caffeine
Kick the caffeine habit. Caffeine even in small amounts can stimulate cyst growth, unfortunately for many of us, this includes de-caffeinated chocolate. For someone who drinks a lot of caffeine, the eventual result can be fatigue, anxiety, depression and insomnia. Caffeine affects the body in many ways. Caffeine can leech calcium from the body, which is especially problematic if you are at risk for osteoporosis. While trying to eliminate caffeine from the diet, one is likely to experience caffeine withdrawal symptoms including fatigue and severe headaches. Excessive consumption of caffeine increases blood pressure, causes cholesterol levels to rise, and disturbs heart rhythms. Caffeine can increase gastrointestinal problems, including gastric reflux and acid stomach. Caffeine contributes to fibrocystic breast disease. Caffeine impairs fertility. Are there any alternatives to caffeine? It depends upon what you seek from your daily coffee or soda. If you enjoy the warm, comforting feeling of coffee in the morning, try a different morning drink: roasted grain beverage such as Inka, Caffix.

Enjoy these hot drink alternatives.
Avoid these alternative hot drinks.
