As we’ve discussed before, being able to grow tasty herbs during a societal collapse situation may not seem like a big deal to most people who are currently prepping for that day. But take our word for it, once you begin eating that long-term storable food you’ve been stockpiling, it’s going to all start tasting the same at some point.

So what, right? At least you’ve got food to eat. Yeah, but being able to zest up your meals is along the same lines as ensuring you have playing cards, reading materials, and other things to occupy your down time and keep your mind active during a long-term emergency; recreational items aren’t a big deal to many preppers, but if stuff hits the fan and you don’t have them, you will definitely miss them.

Besides, in terms of growing your own herbs and spices, they don’t take up much room, they are easy to grow and are self-sustaining, with a minimum amount of work (and water, which you’ll need to conserve as best you can unless or until you find a source).

One herb that is a good choice is cilantro, which closely resembles parsley and adds quite a bit of flavor and nutrition to any meal. (RELATED: Grid Down? 6 Ways To Cook When There’s Absolutely No Electricity.)

So what, exactly, is cilantro? It’s an annual herb that is known for its feathery leaves with large, white overarching flower heads. The name cilantro itself actually refers to the fresh leaf, which is also called “Chinese parsley.” In some countries, it is known not as cilantro but as coriander, which is the name used for the seeds.

— Growing cilantro: As noted by Tropical Permaculture, growing this herb is fairly effortless:

Cilantro needs a frost free period to grow but it doesn’t like extreme heat. So in milder climates you grow cilantro during summer, in tropical climates you grow it during the cooler dry season.

Like many herbs, then, Chinese parsley needs moist, largely cool conditions in order to thrive. Good soil is a must, as well, though you can also use garden towers to grow this tasty seasoning if space is at a premium where you live.

As for how to begin growing it, many experts say don’t get cilantro from the store that is already growing and potted; you will have your best results using seed.

Experienced cilantro growers say that cilantro seeds need to only be about 1 cm deep, though it’s not like you have to actually whip out a ruler for precision. Just know that the seeds don’t have to be very deep in order to germinate and thrive. After planting, again, keep the seeds moist.

Planting cilantro in rows in your garden is easiest when it comes time for harvesting, but experts say you can also spread your seeds over a wider area and use a rake to gather up the leaves when it’s time. Much of this depends on the amount of seed you have, but remember you shouldn’t get too ambitious with seed-planting because a little cilantro goes a long way. “Healthy cilantro plants grow fairly big,” notes Tropical Permaculture; about 50 centimeters to about 2 feet in height. Because of cilantro’s robust, hearty nature, keep your seeds about five centimeters apart because they will need that much space in order to go to seed, which of course, in a long-term collapse situation is exactly what you’ll want. This will help perpetuate your herb crop. (RELATED: Off-Grid Living: Harvesting Rainwater On A Budget.)

— Germination and growth: Growers say that cilantro seeds need about two or three weeks to fully germinate. Also, if you find that the plants are coming in too thick, just “weed” them out and eat the extra plants.

The best way to harvest cilantro, experts say, is to simply pull each plant straight up out of the ground, but you’ll want to make sure to do so without damaging nearby plants. One thing to remember is that cilantro grows a “taproot” that is extremely flavorful; in fact, many Asian soup stock recipes call for adding cilantro/coriander root in the way that Europeans use parsley root for their soup stock.

— Recipes: Here’s the best part – actually adding cilantro to your recipes. Most long-term storable foods and canned goods already come seasoned, of course, but many taste alike. Cilantro, and a host of other herbs you can (and should) grow add more unique flavoring to your meals. The best part is, especially if you’ve purchased organic long-term storable foods, is that fresh-harvested cilantro won’t “pollute” those foods because it, too, is completely organic and fresh.

Some recipes to try include Carrot Chile and Cilantro Soup, Cilantro Pesto (or any cilantro/pasta dish), and cilantro-flavored chili dishes. See more recipes here.

February 10, 2017

The health benefits of fresh herbs are often overlooked; however, they can be just as essential to a healthy diet as fruits and vegetables thanks to their high antioxidant content.

Learning how to use fresh herbs and spices like cilantro to flavor food can also help to cut down on sodium intake.

In this article, we will give a brief history of cilantro, describe its nutritional content, and discuss possible health benefits.

Fast facts on cilantro

Here are some key points about cilantro. More detail and supporting information is in the main article.

  • There is archaeological evidence that cilantro has been enjoyed for thousands of years
  • Cilantro contains chemicals that help foods stay fresher for longer
  • One-fourth of a cup of cilantro contains 5 percent of the daily value of vitamin A

What is cilantro?

Cilantro
Learning how to use fresh herbs and spices like cilantro can help to cut down on sodium intake.

Cilantro is an annual herb from the family Apiaceae, which contains 3,700 species including carrots, celery, and parsley.

All parts of the plant are edible, but the fresh leaves and dried seeds are most commonly used in cooking.

Often known in the United Kingdom as coriander, cilantro comes from the plant Coriandrum sativum.

In the United States, the leaves of the plant are referred to as cilantro (the Spanish translation) and the seeds are called coriander. Cilantro is also commonly known as Chinese parsley.

This article focuses on the health benefits of the leaves of the Coriandrum plant.

Cilantro has been a part of human cuisine for a long time. Dried traces of cilantro were found in a cave in Israel that dated to around 6,000 BC. Remnants have also been found in ancient Egypt, showing that its use was widespread even in ancient civilizations.

Moving forward a few thousand years, cilantro was brought to the early British colonies in North America in 1670, making it one of the first spices to be cultivated by the early settlers.

Possible health benefits of cilantro

Consuming plant-based foods of all kinds has long been associated with a reduced risk of many lifestyle-related health conditions.

Some studies suggest that increasing consumption of plant foods like cilantro decreases the risk of obesity, overall mortality, diabetes, and heart disease while promoting healthy skin and hair, increased energy, and overall lower weight.

Natural preservative

Due to its high antioxidant content, oil extracted from the leaves of cilantro has been shown to inhibit unwanted oxidation when added to other foods, delaying or preventing spoilage.

A compound found in the leaves and seeds of cilantro – dodecanal – has also been found to have an antibacterial effect against Salmonella. In laboratory tests, dodecanal was twice as…

Nourishing your body with superfoods including cilantro, mint and spinach helps ward off Alzheimer’s disease and dementia

Superfoods

Millions of Americans are stricken with dementia and Alzheimer’s, while millions more are concerned that they, too, may some day develop these conditions, which currently have no traditional medical cure.

Fortunately a great deal of research on natural and alternative treatments that can either stave off or improve dementia has been conducted and continues to be undertaken, and what scientists are discovering is no less than amazing.

For instance, simply improving your diet and adding key superfoods like blueberries and cilantro will dramatically improve your chances of keeping dementia at bay. But, as long as we feed our bodies with toxins and prepackaged foods and substances devoid of nutrition, our chances of getting dementia increase exponentially. Avoiding certain compounds and substances is also important in staving off dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Detoxification is key; adequately removing toxins like heavy metals requires the ingestion of certain superfoods. These include cilantro, chlorella, spinach, cabbage, asparagus, ginger root, mint, parsley, turmeric, sesame seeds, almonds and garlic, to name just a few.

Mercury, lead, cadmium and arsenic are very common heavy metals, and we are exposed to some or all of them nearly every day of our lives, and sometimes at every meal. From foods to household chemicals and other items, from our tap water to dental fillings in our mouths, 99 percent of all chronic diseases and illnesses come from a combination of a lack of clean eating and proper nutrition, and toxic pollutants that constantly have to be filtered out of our bodies by our various organs. Eventually, when toxic metal levels get high enough and are left untreated, they begin causing chronic illness.

Our main organs that detoxify our bodies naturally are the liver, kidneys, lungs and skin. The superfoods mentioned above go a long way towards helping the body accomplish its detoxification tasks. These superfoods will draw the heavy metals out of your bloodstream and organs, soft tissues and muscles, and prevent free radicals from polluting your system, and triggering chronic health conditions (like dementia).

These conditions are entirely preventable, if caught early enough, and we shouldn’t allow the traditional medical system to feed us the lie that our conditions are mostly “genetic” and therefore irreversible.

Consider, for instance, that around 15 million people are currently taking some form of statin drug. Per a recent entry in Truthwiki: “With the use of statins there is a GREATER RISK of coronary vessels developing obstructive coronary heart disease. Ironically, according to the FDA’s own adverse event reporting system, at least 40 of every 10,000 statin reports are for interstitial lung disease. Statins prescribed to the elderly is causing a 9% increase in diabetes, early-onset cataracts and insulin resistance. Then it’s the plaque–the calcified plaque and the coronary calcium–it continues regardless of statin treatment.”

How many people actually know that? How many healthcare providers actually know that?

As for heavy metals and the development of Alzheimer’s, TruthWiki also notes:

“Western medicine doctors work hard to convince patients that nearly all disease, disorder and sickness is genetic, including Alzheimer’s, somehow inherited from our parents and passed along to the children, so the doctors are “needed” for regular checkups, regular visits, and regular chronic, costly care. Most people believe anything and everything their doctors tell them, but the truth is very far from this regarding Alzheimer’s disease–namely its root causes and the ‘end results.’ Plaques in the brain and hardened arteries can lead to Alzheimer’s and strokes, but there is much more to the diagnoses and examinations of the brain and the pollutants that contribute to disorder and severe malfunction of cognition.”

Dumbing-Down Society Part 3: How to Reverse its Effects

The first two parts of this series describes the negative effects that some commonly consumed chemicals have on the body and brain. This third and final part looks at some natural ways to keep the brain healthy and provides tips to rid the body of dangerous substances. In other words, how to fight back against the dumbing down of society!

Parts I and II of this series of articles identified some toxic substances found in common foods and medicines and described some of their effects on the human brain. The main culprits discussed were aspartame, mercury, fluoride and high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). Whether these substances disturb the nervous system, decrease cognitive function, impair judgment, or affect the memory, the net result is the general dumbing down of society.

All is not doom and gloom, however. Nature, with its wonderful tendency to restore equilibrium, provides us humans the cure to almost any affliction we might develop. Ancient healers even believed that nature helped humans discover the cure to their illnesses in subtle and mysterious ways:

“The plant might also be considered worthy of veneration because from its crushed leaves, petals, stalks, or roots could be extracted healing unctions, essences, or drugs affecting the nature and intelligence of human beings – such as the poppy and the ancient herbs of prophecy. The plant might also be regarded as efficacious in the cure of many diseases because its fruit, leaves, petals, or roots bore a resemblance in shape or color to parts or organs of the human body. For example, the distilled juices of certain species of ferns, also the hairy moss growing upon oaks, and the thistledown were said to have the power of growing hair; the dentaria, which resembles a tooth in shape, was said to cure the toothache; and the palma Christi plant, because of its shape, cured all afflictions of the hands.”
– Manly P. Hall, Secret Teachings of All Ages

So, after dwelling in the awful world of poisonous chemicals and corrupted officials, the only fitting way to conclude this series of articles is to explore the all-natural ways to restore health.

Stop the Toxification

Warning: This article provides tips to naturally detoxify the body. If you are in need of a serious detox program, please consult a professional.

The first step in ridding your body from poisons is, quite logically, to stop ingesting poisons. It sounds simple enough, but this step is probably the most difficult, as many toxins are found in everyday foods and even tap water. An increased vigilance is necessary in everyday life and, sometimes, some annoying actions must be taken to keep the toxins out of your body. Nevertheless, once you actually feel your body and mind healing, you’ll be proud of your efforts.

Before we look at the ways to avoid specific toxins, here are some general guidelines any health-conscious person should apply at all times: Avoid processed foods and artificial drinks. Instead, look for organic and locally grown produce or, even better, grow your own fruits, vegetables and herbs. By doing so, you automatically avoid many harmful substances, including MSG, HFCS, pesticides, sodium fluoride and mercury. You also save money, which is always nice. When buying groceries, always read the labels and, as they say, if you can’t read it, don’t eat it.

Here are specific ways to avoid particular toxins:

Avoiding Fluoride

There are two types of fluoride: calcium fluoride and sodium fluoride. Calcium fluoride is naturally found in water sources, while sodium fluoride is a synthetic waste product of the nuclear, aluminum, and phosphate fertilizer industries. Guess which  type is found in our water? Right, the nasty one. Regular water filters such as Brita do a good job in reducing the taste of metals and chemicals in the water but they do not filter out the fluoride. Purifying the water through reverse osmosis is the most effective way to remove sodium fluoride from water.

Standard reverse osmosis system

Some processed foods also contain high concentrations of sodium fluoride, including instant tea, grape juice products, and soy milk for babies, so once again, avoid processed foods. Also, switch to a fluoride-free toothpaste (or at least try not to swallow the $0.93 Colgate you bought at Walmart).

Consuming foods rich in calcium and magnesium help prevent fluoride intoxication, as they prevent the poison from attaching to the body.

“Magnesium is a very important mineral that many are lacking. Besides being so important in the metabolism and synthesis of nutrients within your cells, it also inhibits the absorption of fluoride into your cells! Along with magnesium, calcium seems to help attract the fluorides away from your bones and teeth, allowing your body to eliminate those toxins. So during any detox efforts with fluoride, it is essential that you include a healthy supplemental dose of absorbable calcium/magnesium as part of the protocol.”
– Paul Fassa, How to Detox Fluoride from Your Body

Avoiding Mercury

First, if you or your children are being vaccinated, always request a Thimerosal-free shot. Second, avoid fish and seafood with high mercury levels; fish with the highest levels of mercury are marlin, orange roughy, shark, swordfish, tilefish and tuna (ahi, albacore and Yellowfin). Some seafood has low mercury levels, making them safer to consume, including anchovies, catfish, clam, crab, shrimp, flounder, salmon, sardine, tilapia and trout. As rule of thumb, bigger fish contain more mercury since they eat smaller fish and absorb all their mercury, and live longer, allowing mercury to build up.

As seen in Part II of this series, some foods containing HFCS are also contaminated with mercury. Here’s the chart produced by the EPA:

Avoiding Aspartame

Always read labels and avoid “sugar-free” products. Aspartame is found in soft drinks, over-the-counter drugs & prescription drugs (very common, listed under “inactive ingredients”), vitamin & herb supplements, yogurt, candy, breath mints, cereals, sugar-free chewing gum, cocoa mixes, coffee beverages, instant breakfasts, gelatin desserts, frozen desserts, juice beverages, laxatives, milk drinks, shake mixes, tabletop sweeteners, tea beverages, instant teas and coffees, topping mixes and wine coolers.

Avoiding HFCS

Read the labels and if you find high fructose corn syrup at the top the list of ingredients, tell the product “oh no you didn’t!”, snap your fingers with attitude and put it back on the shelf. Ignore the confused looks of other shoppers.

We will now look at some all-natural ways to detox the body from harmful substances.

Cilantro

The standard procedure for removing heavy metals from the body is called “chelation.” It is accomplished by administering a chelating agent  – usually dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) – that binds to the heavy metals in the body and cause them to be naturally flushed out. This type of treatment is quite strenuous, has many side-effects and should be undertaken only with medical supervision.

If, however, you believe that ridding the body of a harsh substance with another harsh substance might be self-defeating, I tend to agree with you. Fortunately there are herbs and spices that naturally act as chelating agents: Cilantro does a great job at it.

The most widely used and loved herbs and spices worldwide are derived from the same plant, Coriandrum sativum. The leaves of this plant are frequently referred to as cilantro, while the seeds are most commonly called coriander. Other than making any dish spectacular, the herb has the unique power of neutralizing mercury.

“This kitchen herb is capable of mobilizing mercury, cadmium, lead and aluminum in both bones and the central nervous system. It is probably the only effective agent in mobilizing mercury stored in the intracellular space (attached to mitochondria, tubulin, liposomes etc) and in the nucleus of the cell (reversing DNA damage of mercury).”
– Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, PhD,  Chelation: How to remove Mercury, Lead, & other Metals

Studies have however suggested that cilantro only moves the problem to other parts of the body and thus must be used with another agent to complete the detoxification process.

Chlorella: Cilantro’s Side-Kick

In addition to repairing and activating the body’s detoxification functions, chlorella is known to bind to all known toxic metals and environmental toxins and facilitate their evacuation. This makes chlorella cilantro’s perfect sidekick.

“Because cilantro mobilizes more toxins then it can carry out of the body, it may flood the connective tissue (where the nerves reside) with metals, that were previously stored in safer hiding places.

This process is called re-toxification. It can easily be avoided by simultaneously giving an intestinal toxin-absorbing agent. Our definite choice is the algal organism chlorella. A recent animal study demonstrated rapid removal of aluminum from the skeleton superior to any known other detox agent.

Cilantro causes the gallbladder to dump bile — containing the excreted neurotoxins — into the small intestine. The bile-release occurs naturally as we are eating and is much enhanced by cilantro. If no chlorella is taken, most neurotoxins are reabsorbed on the way down the small intestine by the abundant nerve endings of the enteric nervous system”
– Ibid

Garlic

We may not be sure if garlic actually repels vampires, but we can be certain it repels toxins from the body.

“Garlic contains numerous sulphur components, including the most valuable sulph-hydryl groups, which oxidize mercury, cadmium and lead and make these metals water-soluble. (…) Garlic also contains the most important mineral, which protects from mercury toxicity, bioactive selenium.”
– Ibid

So, garlic zaps mercury and  lead and helps the body evacuate the metals from the body. Perhaps bad breath is the way to good health.

Turmeric (Curcuma)

This plant from the ginger family is widely used in Southeast Asia as a spice and its cleaning powers have been renowned for centuries. Turmeric is enshrined in Ayurvedic medicine as the king of spices. The bitter spice helps cleanse the liver, purify the blood, and promotes good digestion and elimination. It possesses powerful anti-inflammatory properties, but none of the unpleasant side effects of anti-inflammatory drugs. It has been used for skin cleansing, color enhancement and food preservation.

Turmeric steps up the production of three enzymes–aryl-hydrocarbon-hydroxylase, glutathione-S-transferase, and UDP-glucuronyl-transferase. These are chemical “knives” that break down potentially harmful substances in the liver. Turmeric offers similar protection for people who are taking medications such as methotrexate and other forms of chemotherapy, which are metabolized by, or shuttled through, the liver.
– James A. Dukes, Ph D., Dr. Duke’s Essential Herbs

Scientific studies have recently discovered that mixing black pepper with tumeric exponentially increases its healing properties on the body. No wonder traditional South Asian recipes often combine the two spices. So don’t hold back … grind some black pepper into that tumeric!

Omega-3

It is not a secret that consuming the fatty acids found in fish brings many healthy benefits. The acids do wonders for our brains. In fact, Omega-3 is literally our brain’s fuel, helping to maintain its core functions. Our most important organ heavily relies on Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), two long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids that our bodies cannot create. The only way to obtain those acids is through diet.

“Most health professionals believe that DHA is the fatty acid that is most important for healthy structure and development of the brain and for vision so it is vital that there is enough DHA in the diet during pregnancy and in the first few years of a child’s life. EPA on the other hand, is essential for healthy functioning of the brain on a day to day basis, which means that throughout your life you need a constant supply of EPA.”
– David McEnvoy, Why Fish Oil is Brain Fuel

Here are some facts about Omega-3 that are of particular interest in the context of those articles:

  • Research by the University of Western Australia found that women who took fish oil supplements during the latter part of their pregnancy had babies with better hand-to-eye coordination, were better speakers and could understand more at the age of two and a half than babies whose mothers who were given olive oil instead.
  • A study by Aberdeen University, led by professor Lawrence Whalley, found that fish oil helps the brain to work faster, increases IQ scores and slows down the aging process.
  • The Durham trials led by Dr. Madeleine Portwood have consistently found that fish oil improves behaviour, concentration and learning in the classroom.
  • Researcher Natalie Sinn in Australia found fish oil to be more effective than Ritalin for ADHD.
  • Hibbeln et al. looked at diet in 22 countries and found an significant association between low fish consumption and post-natal depression.
  • Dr. Malcolm Peet found that ethyl-EPA, a highly concentrated form of Omega 3, dramatically reduces depression.

Fish oil also plays an important role in ridding the brain of unwanted substances:

“The fatty acid complexes EPA and DHA in fish oil make the red and white blood cells more flexible thus improving the microcirculation of the brain, heart and other tissues. All detoxification functions depend on optimal oxygen delivery and blood flow. EPA and DHA protect the brain from viral infections and are needed for the development of intelligence and eyesight. The most vital cell organelle for detoxification is the peroxisome. These small structures are also responsible for the specific job each cell has.

In the pineal gland the melatonin is produced in the peroxisome, in the neurons dopamine and norepinephrine, etc. It is here, where mercury and other toxic metal attach and disable the cell from doing its work.”
– Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, PhD,  Chelation: How to remove Mercury, Lead, & other Metals

That is all well and good, but what are the best sources of fish oil? Consuming large quantities of fish would be the logical choice, but knowing that many species contain high levels of mercury, doing so might actually cause further damage to the brain. For this reason, Omega-3 supplements are probably the best way to keep the body well-stocked with EPA and DHA.

When selecting an Omega-3 supplement, you need to make sure it is molecularly distilled and is high in both DHA and EPA, especially DHA. Molecular distillation is a special process that removes all the toxins from the oil (including mercury), ensuring it is safe for human consumption. Avoid low-grade products. They often contain low levels of fatty acids and are filled with other oils and preservatives.

Final Advice: Sleep, Sweat and Stimulate

  • Sufficient sleep is vital to keeping the body and the brain in good condition. Conversely, sleep deprivation impairs one’s ability to think handle stress, maintain a healthy immune system and moderate one’s emotions.
  • Regular exercise is critically important for detoxification. It allows the evacuation of toxins through skin while improving the entire metabolism.
  • Stimulate your brain: read, think, meditate and challenge it constantly.

In Conclusion

This article examines the ways to avoid harmful substances in everyday products and looks at a handful of all-natural ways to free the body from their poisonous grasp. In addition to providing us the necessary nutrients used by the body to evacuate toxins, the natural substances described in this article also help maintain general heath. Regularly consuming cilantro, garlic, turmeric and Omega-3 boosts the immune system, improves rational thinking and increases memory. The amazing properties of those simple ingredients are only now being (slowly) documented by science, but they have been used by cultures worldwide for centuries.

We are conditioned to treat ailments caused by artificial products with other artificial products, that, in turn, can cause other ailments. It is only by breaking this vicious circle that we can reclaim ownership of our brains and reach our fullest potential. So, today’s a new day: Put down the cheeseburger-flavored Doritos … and change your life.
