Natural Solutions for Uric Acid Troubles


High uric acid in blood can form hard crystals inside people’s joints. The medical community calls this Gout. These crystals cause burning-pain, swelling, and can eventually lead to joint damage. For the most part, there are two systems that work together that cause high uric acid (monosodium urate) problems. The first one is when the body metabolizes purines found in protein products; mainly meats, and some from the human body itself. Once purines metabolize, it produces uric acid as its waste. Then the body must remove it through the kidneys and bladder. The second problem is Xan-thine oxidase, the enzyme responsible for building up uric acid in the blood. This is the enzyme that needs to be reduced in uric acid sufferers.

How to slowdown Xanthine Oxidase and reduce joint pain?
Use a multi-enzyme formula that includes protease, bromelain, and cellulase to counter xanthine oxidase. The antioxidants, high-dose vitamin C, and chlorophyll (plant enzyme) of Santé Pure Barley, is very effective.

You Have About 30 Pounds Of Poison In Your Colon! Here is Your Solution




People do not give much thought to the functioning of the colon. The colon, however, is a vital part of a healthy, functioning body.

The colon also known as the large intestine removes water, salt, and some nutrients forming stool. A colon that is not functioning correctly will hold onto waste longer than is good for your body. An unhealthy colon does not move along the waste efficiently at all. This results in what is known as a leaky gut.

It should take only around 24 hours for food to process through your body, but with the modern way of eating that lacks essential nutrients the transit time sometimes slows to 70 hours which results in up to 30 pounds of accumulated waste. One of the most common signs of this condition is constipation.

“The heavy mucus coating in the colon thickens and becomes a host of putrefaction. The blood capillaries to the colon begin to pick up the toxins, poisons and noxious debris as it seeps through the bowel wall. All tissues and organs of the body are now taking on toxic substances. Here is the beginning of true autointoxication on a physiological level. This accumulation can have the consistency of truck tire rubber. It’s that hard and black.”

The Gladiator's Diet


The main aspect that influenced the production of the film Gladiator was the famous scene where the audience follows Roman General Maximus Decimus Meridius as he walks through a field of BARLEY as he puts his hand out through the field.



"Contemporary accounts of gladiator life sometimes refer to the warriors as hordearii--literally, "barley men." Grossschmidt and collaborator Fabian Kanz subjected bits of the bone to isotopic analysis, a technique that measures trace chemical elements such as calcium, strontium, and zinc, to see if they could find out why. They turned up some surprising results. Compared to the average inhabitant of Ephesus, gladiators ate more plants and very little animal protein."


Interesting.  The top athletes, with their lives on the line, ate 'very little' animal protein compared to non-athletes. Consuming a lot of simple carbohydrates, such as barley, and legumes, like beans, was designed for survival in the arena.

The Spiritual Roots of Barley

Barley (Hordeum vulgare) grows in over one hundred countries in the world. It is a grain plant like wheat, cereal, corn and rice. Barley used to be the most important crop. In the ancient times, barley was regularly served in the variety of bread and porridge. It was Barley and neither wheat nor rice that was the primary grain of the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and Hebrews during the old ages. Egyptian workers during the ancient times refer to barley as nourishment having merely three loaves of barley bread and beer made from barley a day. One reason it is not surprising that it was mentioned several times in the bible both New and Old Testament.


The immense importance of the said crop in the olden times is irrefutable. A Vedic writing in the Indus Valley mentioned barley and rice as "two immortal sons of heaven." Emperor Shen Nung of China declared barley as one of the five sacred plants in his country dated 2, 800 B.C. Rice, wheat, millet and soybeans are the other sacred plants that he cited.

Barley is also much selected by the Athletes as the Greeks regard to it as the most strengthening grain. The gladiators of Rome are often named Hordearii or Barley Men since their diet relied on Barley. Sumerians also use barley as a form of money. Barley being used as a monetary exchange was also recorded in Babylonians, Code of Hammurabi dating 1750 B.C. An ancient town in Greece, Eleusis which is no longer in existence today rewards sacks of barley for game winners.

BARLEY by Dr. M.Laiq Ali Khan

The Prophet ( Sallallahu Alaiyhi Wasallam ) recommended Barley to cure grief's of heart and ailments of kidney

By Dr. M.Laiq Ali Khan

Barley crops are cultivated throughout the country during the season of rabi crops and utilized in various forms including the Barley flour. The plants of barley are very similar to wheat and the seeds are elongated in shape in comparison to wheat with a covering of light yellow colour. Prophet Muhammad ( Sallallahu Alaiyhi Wasallam ) liked it very much and used it in various forms such as barley bread, gruel and dough.

During the period of the Prophet ( Sallallahu Alaiyhi Wasallam ) the people either used to eat the Barley bread or to mix the wheat flour with Barley flour to prepare the bread generally. One lad used to sell the preparation from Beet roots and barley at the gate of Masjid-e-Nabwi on every Friday and it is said that holy companions liked this preparation as much as they used to wait for Friday eagerly. Ummul Manzar states that the Prophet ( Sallallahu Alaiyhi Wasallam ) along with Ali came to our house, we had the dates and those were presented to them. Both of them ate from those dates. When  Ali (Ra) consumed a little of those, the Prophet ( Sallallahu Alaiyhi Wasallam ) said

"You recently recovered from illness, hence you are weak, hence don’t eat more. Therefore, that lady prepared a dish from barley and beet root. Then, the Prophet ( Sallallahu Alaiyhi Wasallam ) told Ali "eat from it, it is better for you". (Ibn-e-Maja, Sanad-e-Ahmed, Tirmizi)

This proves that after illness, the preparation made from barley and beet roots is very good tonic for weak persons.

Anas Bin Malik states that a tailor invited the Prophet ( Sallallahu Alaiyhi Wasallam ) to meals. He prepared the barley bread and meat with Pumpkin. The Prophet ( Sallallahu Alaiyhi Wasallam ) very affectionately ate the pumpkin pieces from the curry. (Bukhari, Muslim)

Yousuf Bin Abdullah Bin Salam states that I saw the Prophet ( Sallallahu Alaiyhi Wasallam ) taking a piece of barley bread and put a date on it and stated that was bread’s vegetable (salan). (Abu Dawood)

The barley gruel was especially prepared after boiling barley with milk and sweetened with honey. That preparation was called as Talbina.

Whenever a person of the family of Muhammad ( Sallallahu Alaiyhi Wasallam ) fell sick then it was ordered that the barley gruel should be prepared for him. Then he used to state

"it removes the grief of the patients heart, removes its weakness as any of you removes the dirt from your face after washing it". (Ibn Maja)

Aisha (R.A) used to order preparation of Talbina for sick person and used to say "though the patient dislike it, but it is highly beneficial for him. (Bukhari)

Another narration is found on record from Aisha Siddiqua (R.A). Whenever anyone complained of loss of appetite to the Prophet ( Sallallahu Alaiyhi Wasallam ), He ordered to use Talbina and stated

"By Allah who hold my life, this removes the dirts of your abdomen as one of you removes the dirt of your face by washing it".

Powdered barley (Sattoo) was very much liked by the Prophet ( Sallallahu Alaiyhi Wasallam ). At the time of victory of Khaibar, the Prophet agreed to marry to Safia, the very next day he directed to Anas Bin Malik to invite the people to attend the Dawat-e-Walima of Safia.

According to the narrations of Tirmizi and Ibn Majah the walima comprised of dates and sattoo, but according to Bukhari a confection was prepared from dates, barley and sattoo and served before the guests.

In Nisai, Abu Dawood, Bukhari, Ibn-e-Majah, Tirmizi and Ahmed Bin Hambal, there are 21 hadiths recommending the consumption of Sattoo. Besides this the description of Sattoo is also available in other Hadiths.

According to the scholars of hadith barley is very nutritious and provides energy for the body, besides this is also beneficial in pharyngitis and cough. It resolves the inflammation of the stomach (Gastritis), expels the toxins from the body and a good diuretic. It quenches the thirst. Barley water is a good remedy in kidney problem, to quench the thirst and provide the best nutrition for indisposed and weak persons. Preparation of Barley water is described by Ibn Al-Qayyim. According to him, barley with five times water should be boiled, till the contents become 3/4 and the colour of the mixture becomes milky.

Scientists have found the following items during the chemical synthesis of barley- albuminoids, starch, fat, fiber, ash and water. Chemical composition shows that it contains the fat in the form of Leucosine Gluten Albumen, the compound of Nitrogen as palmatic Acid, Salisylic Acid, Phosphoric Acid. Besides, it contains Hypoxanthens. British Pharmacopoeia recommends Malt extract for internal use. It contains 4 per cent Proteins, the enzymes for digestion of carbohydrates and vitamins. Some scientists also indicate the presence of Arsenic in the barley grain.

The ancient physician’s explained various experiences regarding the use of barley. Ibn Sina says that the blood produced by consuming barley is neutral, pure and of low consistency.

According to Firdous Al-Hikmat the suspension prepared from one part of barley and fifteen part of water until after boiling this volume becomes 2/3rd of its basic solution, is beneficial for at least hundred diseases of the body.

Deadly Pills: A National Epidemic

Drugs are now the No. 1 accidental killer in the U.S., with the vast majority of deaths caused by prescription meds.

An article published in PEOPLE magazine recently shared what every Chiropractor on the planet tries to share with their patients: Drugs are Deadly, Prescription or Over-the-counter.

“The statistics are staggering, the medicines powerful and highly addictive: This year more Americans will die of drug over-doses than in any other type of accident – including car crashes. In most cases, those deaths are caused by pills in many people’s medicine cabinets given to them by trusted doctors, left over from routine surgeries or prescribed to manage chronic conditions. ”

According to Dr. Leonard Paulozzi of the CDC, “Prescription drug overdoses are a serious nationwide problem for which we haven’t yet found a solution.”

Deadly Combinations


The drugs that are killing the most people right now didn't originate on the street, but with a prescription.


The body of a prescription drug overdose victim arrives at the medical examiner's office in Largo.

 Prescription painkillers and anti-anxiety drugs now kill about 500 people a year in the Tampa Bay area, triple the number killed by illegal drugs such as cocaine and heroin.

Prescription drug overdoses killed 433 people in the bay area in 2006, up from 339 the year before. Though 2007 figures aren't complete, the area is on pace for about 550 deaths. That means prescription drug overdoses are likely to overtake car crashes as the leading cause of accidental death here.

"The numbers are pretty staggering," said Bill Pellan, director of investigations for the Pinellas-Pasco Medical Examiner's Office.

Statewide, prescription drug overdoses caused 1,720 deaths in 2006, up about 40 percent from just three years earlier. In 2007, the state was on a pace of about 2,000 deaths.



"It's almost like the same case every day. Multiple drugs, history of drug abuse -- at least once a day," said medical examiner Jon Thogmartin.

 Medical examiner Jon Thogmartin has made observations about people who die as the result of prescription drugs. "They don't take care of themselves, their home. (They are) barely employable. Generally, that's the type of person we see dead."

Michael Wood, 39, displays a picture of his fiance Sharon Simpson, in the Largo home he shares with his mother. Simpson died of an overdose on Jan. 1, 2006. "She had a lot of pain all the time," Wood said. Those pain pills were like candy to her."

"This has become an epidemic," says Circuit Judge Dee Anna Farnell, center, here speaking to a drug offender at the Pinellas County Criminal Justice Center. "It was cocaine in the '70s, crack in the '80s. Now it's the abuse of pharmaceuticals."

Debbie Curry of Seminole holds a picture of her daughter Marissa Curry, who died at 24 from a prescription drug overdose. "You do have people who have legitimate needs and they should be able to get their medications without having to suffer," she says. "But if you take one pill, you don't take four."
