Iodine and magnesium: liquid gold for homeschool families

Thursday, 03. April 2008 by Renee Ellison


I’ve been experiencing some fantastically life-giving properties in two simple substances: iodine and magnesium. Allow me to tell you about these two substances that I think are like “liquid gold.”

Iodine: the thyroid can’t function properly without it, and it is seldom found in our food these days. Iodine wipes out bacterias of all sorts, gives energy, and is vital in correcting environmental pollution that hits the thyroid first. Apparently, 5% solution of iodine is not available for sale in the U.S. anymore, but you can still get 2%. All you need is ONE DROP per day…put in your children’s water, etc. Each of you can begin the use of it immediately and never quit!!!

Magnesium oil: I’ve found that with just one or two drops rubbed into the palm of the hands, life picks up new vitality. It is oily, and feels and smells like sea water. Years ago a physician mentioned to me that in medical school she found she usually could answer every dosage question on her exams with MAGNESIUM and pull an A!!! Apparently, magnesium is needed for every metabolic function, and it (rather than calcium, as is commonly thought) is helpful in combating osteoporosis. My hubby is even finding a drop of two of magnesium oil on his hands mitigates the effects of spring allergies…simply good for whatever. We all have next to none of this mother-load mineral in our systems, currently. You can put it in your water, soak your feet in it, etc.

A source for the magnesium oil that I’ve found helpful in overcoming spring allergies is http://www.globallight.net/ or by phone at 888-236-2108. JCrow.com (phone: 1-603-878-1965) is a source for Lugol’s iodine, and describes what it’s good for. We have no connection with either of these companies; no doubt there are other sources; these are just the ones we’re aware of.

Disclaimer: We are only sharing our personal experience with these two substances; we make no claims with respect to their efficacy for any purpose whatsoever, and we do not sell them.

Incredible way to use grains

Sunday, 30. March 2008 by Renee Ellison

Wow! Is this cool. Fantastic cereal !!! I’ve already tried it. AMAZING.

Rinse your wheat or spelt WHOLE grains 3 times (use 2 cups of grain for your first trial run).
Set on counter with purified soak water just covering grains.
Rinse at night before bed and first thing in a.m. for just two days.
DRINK the soak water, each time—it is loaded with vitamins and minerals.

At the end of 48 hours a little sprouted tip appears; then
Boil new purified water (several cups),
Fill quart size glass canning jars with grains (about 1/2 cup full of grain per ball jar and pour boiling water up to one inch of lid),
Immediately set jars in your portable cooler, wrap towels around the jars and put the lid on quickly to “cook” all night.
The next morning, grind in your Vita-Mix or blender, and add agave and cinnamon.

This makes absolutely delicious RAW cereal (that tastes like cooked) and gives you phenomenal ENERGY for a long time!!!

Sample schedule:
Monday morning clean and set to soak
Tuesday night wrap in towels
Wednesday morning: EAT

Using chess to share the Lord with children

Thursday, 27. March 2008 by Renee Ellison

The other day, we were speedily vanquished by an expert chess player who was showing us a few moves that resulted in several very short games. Having more time to think afterward than during these friendly bouts, I had time to think about universals in the game of chess. I like to think of the King as God, and that all the other players find it wise to pursue Him with all their efforts. He is the grand prize of life. To find Him is everything. A few months ago I was in a foreign land where we didn’t understand the locals’ language, and vice versa. So, we communicated over a chess board. In stages, I taught a teenage girl how to play the game. First I showed her all the lesser skirmishes first (like doing life activities outside of any over-arching purpose) and only later did I finally pull out the King—showing her the purpose of the entire game. With Him, all of life’s lesser skirmishes fall into their originally designed right relationships and life works; it has meaning and purpose. All our activities then have the joy of doing them under His watchful caring eye and affection. Without Him, the difference in life forever feels like viewing a sunset alone.

Another way to share the Good News, especially with young persons and with someone who doesn’t speak the same language you do, is to use the The Gospel in Colors booklet.
