Iodine Patch Test
Using Iodine Tincture (like you may have used for wounds), paint an approximate 3 x 3 inch area on your skin. May use arm, abdomen or whatever. May sure it is dry before allowing clothing to contact the area.
May do in the evening and see what it looks like in the morning. Doing it earlier during the day may allow you to follow it more closely.

Check periodically for color change. Observe the following color changes after about 8 to 12 hours:
Bright Yellow (as when it was first applied): No iodine deficiency.
Pale Yellow: Mild iodine deficiency. (May use Iodomere 4-6 a day, or 1 Prolamine Iodine.)
Grayish colored: Moderate iodine deficiency. (Use more iodine, Organically Bound Minerals, and/or some thyroid.)
No color left after about 12 hours or less: Severe iodine deficiency. Prolamine Iodine 3-4 a day short-term. Repeat test every few weeks.

Armpit Temperature Test
The older glass thermometer is best and most accurate. Shake down before bed time and put by your bed. When wake up the next morning, without going to the bathroom or anything, put thermometer under armpit and read after 5 – 10 minutes. Record for a several days to get an average. (On menstruating female, most accurate on days 3 or 4 of the flow cycle.)

Normal range is 97.8 to 98.2. Below is low thyroid functioning.

Acid/Alkaline Test Do first thing upon arising, and do several days for an average.
Saliva should be around 7.0 to 7.2 (relates somewhat to pH of blood)
Urine pH should be around 5.5 to 6.0 (relates somewhat to pH of gut)

Candida Sputum Test
Have a clear glass full of water ready. Do this first thing upon arising. Spit sputum into this glass of water.
Check the water every 15 minutes for up to one hour.
If you see strings (like legs) traveling down into the water from the saliva floating on the top, or “cloudy” saliva that sinks to the bottom of the glass, or cloudy specks suspended in the water, then the saliva is carrying a fungal overgrowth.
If no strings etc appear and the saliva is floating after one hour, it appears you are Candida free.

Honey & Cinnamon

It is found that a mixture of honey and cinnamon cures most diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also accept honey as a “Ram Ban” (very effective) medicine for all kinds of diseases. Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases.

Today’s science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients. Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada, in its issue dated 17 January, 1995 has given the following list of diseases that can be cured by honey and cinnamon as researched by western scientists:

HEART DISEASES Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread, instead of jelly and jam, and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack. Also those who have already had an attack, if they do this process daily, they are kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as you age, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and veins.

ARTHRITIS Arthritis patients may take daily, morning, and night, one cup of hot water with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. If taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week, out of the 200 people so treated, practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain, and within a month, mostly all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis started walking without pain.

BLADDER INFECTIONS Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder.

CHOLESTEROL Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol patient, was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol is cured. According to information received in the said journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.

COLDS Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and clear the sinuses.

UPSET STOMACH Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears stomach ulcers from the root.

GAS According to the studies done in India and Japan, it is revealed that if honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.

IMMUNE SYSTEM Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacteria and viral diseases.

INDIGESTION Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.

INFLUENZA A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural
Ingredient which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.

Take four spoons of honey, one spoon of cinnamon powder and three cups of water and boil to make like tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Life spans also increases and even a 100 year old, starts performing the chores of a 20-year-old.

PIMPLES Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste. Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it next morning with warm water. If done daily for two weeks, it removes pimples from the root.

FATIGUE Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than! than being detrimental to the strength of the body.
Senior citizens, who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts, are more alert and flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M. when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, increases the vitality of the body within a week.
