Celery

We have all been known with the fact that celery is a great vegetable and should always be included into your diet. Besides its well known health benefits celery also is able to kill cancer cells.

The fact that celery kills up to 86% of the cancer cells in the lungs has been proved in a recent study. The powerful anti-cancer compound apigenin is known to kill different types of cancer cell including ovarian, pancreatic and prostate and breast cancers.

Woman who eat plenty amounts of apigenin through their diet are more like to reduce the risk of getting breast cancer by 19% and ovarian cancer by 20%.

Researches in China have shown that by eating one serving of two medium stalks of celery 2 to 3 times in a week may reduce the risk of getting lung cancer by 60%. However, it is not yet determined whether apigenin acts against cancer on its own or it acts together with the other beneficial celery compounds.

Vascular endotheial growth produces protein that acts stimulating for formation of new blood vessels. The unfortunate part of this protein is that is also helps the growth of cancerous tumors.

Apigenin, however, reduce the possibility of growing a tumor by decreasing the growth of vascular endothelial and it also reduce the growth of prostate, thyroid, leukemia and lung cancers. Since apigenin prevents the glucose uptake it also reduces the cycle of forming cancer cells in the pancreas. There are many strong reasons why you should add celery into your daily diet.

Preventing cancer growth, extraordinary source of fiber and a great antioxidant are just some of the benefits you can get if you consume celery. This beneficial vegetable can be eaten as an addition to stir fries, salsa, soups and vegetable smoothies or mixed into salads. The most important thing you should remember is that you always buy and eat organic and pesticide free products.

Chinese Toon

Toona can safely prevent and alleviate lung cancer proliferation in vitro and in vivo. It has the potential to be developed as an anti-lung cancer drug.  Leaf extracts of Toona sinensis have cytotoxic activity on several cancer cells including prostate cancer cells. Gallic acid has been identified as the major anti-cancer compound. It is cytotoxic to DU145 prostate cancer cells.  Intraperitoneal injection of Toona extract suppressed the proliferation of ovarian cancer cells without toxicity.

Just you seem to blame everything on "kundalini" you are perpetuating a perhaps irrational belief that this energy is causing you all sorts of problems. Maybe try telling yourself kundalini dont exist and see how you get on, because judging from your posts you are fixated and obsessed with it! anyway no harm intended and Im sure you will be fine in the ed department.

Well, both Glenn Morris & JJ Semple alluded to unreliable performance after kundalini awakening.  I don't know if that happens to everyone, or just some people due energetic rerouting or clearing out blocks there?

Powerless, paralyzed, sexually-abused...  Were you child-molested or abused?

 

If so, you need to recover from that trauma in order to stop the same pattern from repeating itself..

 

Otherwise, if you remain stuck in the "victim" role...then you will keep attracting "persecutors" and then need "rescuers" to complement and complete your "triangle."

At this stage in your journey, psychology may be more directly helpful than "spiritual" (bypassing) fairy tales.. :P

There is one channel I would like to know more about. The San Jiao (Triple Burner). Specifically its energetic functions. I have heard that it functions as our energetic digestion. 
 
Anyone know more about that?

I've wondered if it might correspond with the vagus nerve function, which connects the brain, heart & gut (3 dantians)?

The Upper Jiao is essentially the Thoracic Cavity, and the Orophalanx (mouth basically). Everything above the diaphragm relating to Digestion and Circulation, and almost all of of the organs of Perspiration. It belongs alongside Thoracic Cavity in a Scientific Occidental Medical Practitioner, as an Organ Group.

The Middle Jiao is the core of digestion—Stomach, Liver particularly the closest cells to the Hepatic Portal, "Spleen" (digests red blood cells more efficently than the liver), and the Duodenum. Sparing the colourful descriptions, this is areas where food is mostly converted .

Finally, the lower burner is mostly dealing with slow extraction of less and less useful food matter, and includes the Ilium, Colon, and—along similar lines to the filtering of waste matter—the Kidneys. But also the Adrenal Complex.

 

The triple burner, however, is said to be primarily energetic and does not have a physical component, unlike all the other organs in TCM. In dissection a body, one would not be able to find a structure that could be called the San Jiao.
