THE MANY HEALTH SECRETS OF CUCUMBERS

Here are some amazing facts and hacks about the cumber, that you may not know.

  1. Cucumbers contain most of the vitamins you need every day, just one 
    cucumber contains Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, 
    Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Zinc.
  2. Juice 4 ounces of cucumber juice per day to clear up acid reflux/heartburn. A reason for this burning sensation can be a lack of HCL (Hydrochloric acid) in your stomach, often due to antibiotics. So 4 ounces a day of cucumber juice will restore the HCL levels in your stomach.
  3. Feeling tired in the afternoon? Put down the caffeinated soda and
    pick up a cucumber. Cucumbers are a good source of B vitamins and 
    Carbohydrates that can provide that quick pick-me-up that can last for many hours.
  4. Tired of your bathroom mirror fogging up after a shower? Try rubbing a cucumber slice along the mirror, it will eliminate the fog and provide a soothing, spa-like fragrance.
  5. Are grubs and slugs ruining your planting beds? Place a few slices in 
    a small pie tin and your garden will be free of pests all season long. 
    The chemicals in the cucumber react with the aluminum to give
    off a scent undetectable to humans but drive garden pests crazy and make them flee the area.
  6. Looking for a fast and easy way to remove cellulite before going out 
    or to the pool? Try rubbing a slice or two of cucumbers along your 
    problem area for a few minutes, the phytochemicals in the cucumber cause the collagen in your skin to tighten, firming up the outer layer and reducing the visibility of cellulite. Works great on wrinkles too!!!
  7. Want to avoid a hangover or terrible headache? Eat a few cucumber 
    slices before going to bed and wake up refreshed and headache free. 
    Cucumbers contain enough sugar, B vitamins and electrolytes to replenish essential nutrients the body lost, keeping everything in equilibrium, avoiding both a hangover and headache!!
  8. Looking to fight off that afternoon or evening snacking binge? Cucumbers have been used for centuries and often used by European trappers, traders and explores for quick meals to thwart off starvation.
  9. Have an important meeting or job interview and you realize that you 
    don’t have enough time to polish your shoes? Rub a freshly cut cucumber over the shoe, its chemicals will provide a quick and durable shine that not only looks great but also repels water.
  10. Out of WD 40 and need to fix a squeaky hinge? Take a cucumber slice 
    and rub it along the problematic hinge, and voila, the squeak is gone!
  11. Stressed out and don’t have time for massage, facial or visit to the 
    spa? Cut up an entire cucumber and place it in a boiling pot of water, 
    the chemicals and nutrients from the cucumber will react with the 
    boiling water and be released in the steam, creating a soothing, 
    relaxing aroma that has been shown the reduce stress in new mothers and college students during final exams.
  12. Just finish a business lunch and realize you don’t have gum or 
    mints? Take a slice of cucumber and press it to the roof of your mouth with your tongue for 30 seconds to eliminate bad breath, the 
    phytochemicals will kill the bacteria in your mouth responsible for 
    causing bad breath.
  13. Looking for a ‘green’ way to clean your faucets, sinks or stainless 
    steel? Take a slice of cucumber and rub it on the surface you want to 
    clean, not only will it remove years of tarnish and bring back the
    shine, but is won’t leave streaks and won’t harm you fingers or 
    fingernails while you clean.
  14. Using a pen and made a mistake? Take the outside of the cucumber and slowly use it to erase the pen writing, also works great on crayons and markers that the kids have used to decorate the walls!!

About the Author

Amanda-Mary
With almost twenty years spent researching and treating Cancer, I am a well respected author, teacher and health coach.

I do have a list of qualifications, but I find them cumbersome and false. The fact I am a qualified Holistic Doctor is neither here, nor there. Medical education is entirely corrupt and something that can be used against you. I go on courses in order to learn, not to buy a badge to hide behind, or a stick to beat people with.

So much nonsense has been written about me that I never read, or choose to absorb. It’s all about them, never about me. I have been attacked and targeted simply because I have helped people and not been silenced. A common misconception is that I am holistic, but the truth is I do not sit on either side of the imaginary divide between what is “mainstream” and what is “holistic.” There is greed and corruption on both sides and examples of bad practice in every field.
Personally, I am only interested in what works and improves the life of the patient.

In some cases, radiation can work and so am happy to recommend that route, if it works and saves a life in an emergency situation. But there is no ‘one size fits all’ and no cookie cutter protocol. There are many variables in healing the body. We are all individual and all capable of change, so each case must be considered individually. What works for one, may not work for another. Mass medication is wrong.
My research and work has led me all over the world and got me into some tight spots at times, but I am thankful for every twist and turn and have learned a lot from each. I am wiser as a result and see that life teaches us all. I recovered from breast cancer 20 years ago, which has saved my life over and over and made me very aware of how fleeting and precious life is. I live each day to the full and as if it were my last.
I have twenty children, many of whom are adopted, four are mine naturally. I love and adore them all and am honored to have been able to raise them, for now they are strong and independent adults. My children are the most important people in my life.

I despise materialism, I have old fashioned views and feel the modern world has lost much in the way of values and common decency. So I travel the world with my partner and 6-year-old daughter, helping people and sharing knowledge. I am still learning and feel that everyday is a school day. The reason I started this blog was so I could pass on some of this knowledge to others.

I speak the truth about everything and my honest approach shocks many, as I tend to say the things most people would not. I focus on solutions, as I am a problem solver at heart and there is only one truth. Stick to the truth and you will never go far wrong.

I hope you enjoy our blog site and the articles we labor over for your benefit. Please donate to the cause on the page above, as we do not receive a penny in advertising, or sponsorship. It is all from the heart.

Love and light.
