Nature has again presented us with a substance that potentially provides us with an alternative treatment to a wide variety of modern illnesses.
Globally we have heard from many people who have paid glowing tribute to the power of grapefruit and grapefruit seed extracts. People have called out that Grapefruit and grapefruit seed extract have cured candida, bacterial, parasitic and intestinal illnesses, as well as preventing and clearing up dysentery.
It's been used as a natural way to stop travelers' diarrhea predominantly caused by drinking unclean water.
It's been aptly named "Liquid Gold" because of the enormous application grapefruit and grapefruit seed extracts have.
Grapefruit has essential minerals, phosphorus, potassium, iron, sodium, magnesium, Vitamin B group especially Biotin, an important nutrient for the utilization of dietary fats. The large numbers of amino acids and Bioflavinoids & Hesperidin found in the extracts benefit infections in some people and help the immune system.
Some health professionals are using grapefruit and grapefruit seed extracts at a natural treatment for gastrointestinal disorders.
It’s antiseptic and disinfectant properties make it ideal for adding to drinking water and for household cleaning.
Grapefruit and grapefruit seed extracts are totally non-toxic and it appears even people allergic to citrus don't have any adverse reaction to it, largely due to its harmonising effect to cope with body stress.
Grapefruit also turns out to be a very useful medicine for the heart and contains potent compounds that lower cholesterol. It may also clean out some of the arterial debris known as plaque. The compound suspected to be responsible is a polysaccharide unique to grapefruit, a type of fiber found in the fruit pectin.
And what about Candida Albicans (thrush)?
This is where grapefruit and grapefruit seed extracts come into their own. The Candida "bug", which causes extreme tiredness, exhaustion, headaches, migraines, digestive bloating, wind, heartburn, loose bowels, constipation, blood toxicity creating eczema, skin rashes and itching, doesn't stand a chance as the extract kills and detoxifies the fungus as well as other parasites that cause ill health.
I have found some patients are able to rid themselves of symptoms after only three weeks of treatment. Taking a dosage of just 10 - 15 drops of Grapefruit Extract in water or juice two to three times per day. Improvement quickly occurs due to the intestinal cleansing action of the extract. I have found it to also be helpful with some arthritis sufferers, the extract is able to reduce pain - as this amazing liquid acts as an antioxidant and seems to be able to rid the body of toxic free radical build up. There are many different products available, and I have been delighted with their quality.
An added bonus is that the extract is very safe - allergic reactions haven't been reported, the only side effects being a mild stomach irritation ( the solution is very powerful), and some discomfort when the bacteria are being killed and released from the system. One consideration for some people is that the extract is very bitter to taste. But that's a small price to pay for getting well.
