Not To Be Corny But Did You Know This?

Cornsilk is healthy for you!


The long shiny fibers at the top of an ear of corn are called corn silk. Corn silk is used as a medicine.

Corn silk is used for bladder infections, inflammation of the urinary system, inflammation of the prostate, kidney stones, and bedwetting. It is also used to treat congestive heart failure, diabetes, high blood pressure, fatigue, and high cholesterol levels.

How does it work? Corn silk contains proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. It also contains chemicals which might work like water pills (diuretics), and it might alter blood sugar levels, and help reduce inflammation.

So you are scratching your head and thinking “Great, but do we eat it raw? Stew it? Or what?”

From all the books I am reading I am finding that a tea made from the cornsilk is one of the best methods of intake. You can use it raw or dried. Chop up two tablespoons and make tea using distilled or spring water. Sweeten with honey if you like.

I discourage anyone using the GMO corn, as it is pretty much guarenteed to not have the beneficial effect that heirloom corn has. It would be best that, if you don’t grow your own corn, you need to know the source of your corn. A good suggestion would be to go to your local Health Food store to purchase Cornsilk Tea or check out your local Farmers Market and get fresh un-shucked corn if it is Non-GMO. BTW the Indians used all parts of the Corn for various things.

Here is a great book you may enjoy as much as I do, “Healing Secrets of the Native Americans” by Porter Shimer.

It is so important that we take care of our own health. Many of the ailments today are simple to self heal.

Think about this… popping pills is not beneficial and has many side effects. Does the Doctor who prescribes the dope tell you that it will cure you? Do they have your best interest in mind? The best remedy for most ailments is knowledge, love and self awareness. When we learn to love ourselves and relax we can begin to listen to our inner guidance and start on a better road to healing ourself.

Research and ask questions Don’t take shots and stop popping pills of any kind without full research.

I read instead of watching TV, and find endless amounts of wonderful information waiting to be absorbed. It is actually fun. Giving up the Boob Tube or Idiot Box as my Dad use to call it, has been my wake up to a brand new life. The TV was delivering stressful information or propraganda on a daily basis. I felt drained and I did not realize that I was giving my energy away to the Cosmic Vampires who drain your Energy Daily if you allow it.

Today I decide what I will read and absorb. Two things must be met before I spend time on any book. 1. Does it makes me feel good? And 2. Is for my highest good? If so then I feel satisfied that I have not wasted my time. I meditate and protect myself from the Cosmic Vampires. They have to go else where to feed. I recommend a good daily dose of meditation helps both your health, wellbeing and raises your vibrations. This positive dose of self love will have amazing results.

Getting back to Nature, it is of key importance for all of us to grow our own produce. Don’t use pesticides ever. Study alternative ways to heal yourself and your loved ones. Study alternative natural ways to get rid of pest. Stop using Chemicals for anything.

Spraying Round-up should be made criminal. Yes, it kills the bugs, and the weeds you thought were evil. As it kills the grass it also kills the healing weeds such as Dandelions and such. Worst, it gets absorbed into the soil, the rain or watering thus takes the poision into the ground water which spreads its cancerous effects for miles. Your Children play in the yard on top of these chemicals and it is absorbed in their clothes and skin. Round Up is Agent Orange and yes it has been proven that it causes Cancer. If it says FDA approved, only means that their hands were well greased or that they are only a fiction to give you a false sense of wellbeing.

I love you all dearly! Be blessed, AnGeleve.
