Cannabis Oil and Clove Oil - Two of the Most Powerful Healers Yet Discovered!
Greetings everyone, and a warm welcome to our December edition of Life Saving Health Solutions. Thank you for subscribing and being a part of our health circle. I sincerely hope you enjoy today’s newsletter and the information I'm going to be sharing with you.
“Medical Marijuana” is the New Buzz Word…Lately, a lot of attention and concern has been placed on children using medical marijuana, even though it’s with parental and/or medical guidance. Most of these concerns are misplaced and out of date, and are a hangover effect from the “Reefer Madness” propaganda that was around in the 1970s. This crazy scare campaign caused a phobia of marijuana in the community. Like I said, thankfully it’s now coming to an end, although some politicians and medical people (or straggler’s as I like to call them) are still resisting.
Some of the children who are afflicted with the most severe form of epilepsy (Dravet Syndrome) are alive and doing well today because of specially formulated cannabis that’s low in activated THC (the hallucinogenic cannabinoid). Charlotte Figi is probably the most well-known and made world headlines back in 2013 after her parents openly admitted giving her cannabis every day to treat her Dravet Syndrome. Amazingly, this little girl went from having over 300 seizures a week to only 2 or 3 through the use of medical marijuana… 6-Year-Old Colorado Girl in National Spotlight Over Medical Marijuana.
Other people are surviving cancer and curing terminal Crohn’s disease through the use of higher THC cannabis. Most of them manage well on cannabis, and in time, almost completely wean themselves of the pharmaceutical medications that were actually worsening their condition. The sad fact is most senior citizens end up loaded up on pharmaceuticals just to get by and get through their daily routines. But there’s now an increasing number of senior cits who are catching on to the merits of one plant’s ability to replace those medications for “age related” ailments. Some terminal cancer patients have even managed to walk out of the hospice after being given up for dead through the use of cannabis…
Cannabis Cures Late Stage Cancer – One Couples AccountPerhaps the most publicized and dramatic recovery story belongs to retired dentist Stan Rutner of California. After experiencing a remission of his non-Hodgins lymphoma earlier on in his life from using natural supplements, Stan was diagnosed with lung cancer in his late 70s.
He was forced to endure chemotherapy, along with radiation therapy. Unfortunately, his cancer had worsened and progressed into his brain. His condition in the hospital got so bad that the doctors’ gave up on him and assigned Stan to a hospice. At this point he was unable to walk and had to be on permanent oxygen. At age 77, Stan had been given only two weeks to live.
Fortunately, his hospice caretaker was his daughter Corrine. She didn’t want her dad to die just yet, so she and her husband John researched the merits of medical marijuana and found a way for Stan to use it legally in California. Stan was given capsules of a concentrated cannabis extract in a coconut oil base every day, and after a few days he began eating and sleeping better.
At the time Corrine and John probably only had the mindset of making Stan comfortable and granting him a more respectable – maybe even slightly extended quality of life. That might have been the most to expect. But they got much more! After a few weeks Stan could walk again and he didn’t need the oxygen tanks anymore. And by the end of 9 months Stan’s brain, lungs, and body were completely cancer free.
Stan’s Success Led to the Creation of a Terrific Site for Medical Cannabis Newcomers…As a result of Stan’s success, son-in-law John and daughter Corrine began building a detailed website to help patients get started on medical cannabis. This website is particularly handy for people who are totally unfamiliar with how to go about obtaining cannabis for medical use and how to use it… unitedpatientsgroup.com
Three years later at age 80, and showing no signs of cancer after using a daily maintenance dose of cannabis infused in coconut oil, Stan is speaking out about the ridiculous federal laws prohibiting the use of medical cannabis, pointing out how cannabis is much less expensive and harmful than conventional medicine. And how cannabis use would actually save the government billions in health care costs too!
Stan is now helping others…
“My wife and I live in a wonderful place, and I now have enough energy to think about helping more people in our luxurious ‘old folks home,’ all of whom have some ailment that would be amenable to treatment by cannabis. We have arthritis, bowel problems, hip and knee issues, early Alzheimer’s symptoms; you name it, we probably have it here [in his retirement home complex].”

Cancer Cures From Cannabis are not as “Rare” as the Medical Mafia Wants You to Believe…Another California senior citizen, who didn’t have access to the United Patients Group website at the time, but still managed to use cannabis to heal his stage 3 prostate cancer completely in six months was Dennis Hill. He admitted he was already familiar with cannabis after being an occasional pot smoker while in high school and during his college days. So Dennis wasn’t put off using marijuana in his later years. But he didn’t think it could help cure him when his friends urged him to try it for his cancer. He was open and curious enough to use his scientific background as a biochemist to research actual studies though. The research was “overwhelming” and he soon realized it could help him with his cancer.
And of course it did!
Now Dennis helps others to understand the different strains of cannabis and how they can beat their cancer without side effects. He was actually one of the cannabis experts interviewed in the recent Holistic Cannabis Summit… holisticcannabissumit.com

Clove Oil - Another Potent Healer From Nature…While we’re on the subject of powerful medicinal healers, have you heard about the health benefits of clove oil? Most people haven’t, but here’s why you should be looking to supplement with this unique oil…
The ancient texts all agree on the therapeutic properties of clove. It’s a remarkable stimulant and has stomachic, expectorant, sedative, carminative, antispasmodic and digestive qualities. It helps with flatulence, stimulates digestion and restores appetite - so is good for convalescence. Clove oil is used in Eastern medicine as a general tonic for both physical and intellectual weakness - and for those suffering from frigidity. Its main therapeutic value, however, is as an antiseptic. Clove oil is outstanding for eradicating intestinal parasites and for the prevention of viral infections. It’s also good for the immune system and is especially effective for mouth and tooth infections.
Here is a review of some of the scientific studies published on the healing properties of clove essential oil…
Clove Oil and Dentistry:[From India] Eugenol, the major ingredient in clove oil, has been widely used for its anesthetic and analgesic action in dentistry. Eugenol exhibits pharmacological effects on almost all systems in the body. Eugenol possesses significant antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, in addition to having analgesic and local anesthetic activity.
Clove Oil and Skin Cancer[From India] Spices and flavoring agents are now receiving increased attention because of their anticarcinogenic properties. Cloves are the sun-dried unopened flower buds from the clove tree (Syzygium aromaticum L) and are commonly used as a spice and flavor enhancer. This particular study was designed to examine the chemopreventive action of a liquid infused mixture of cloves on induced skin cancer in Swiss mice. Researchers found a protective cancer effect from the clove. It delayed the formation of papilloma (skin cancer) and also reduced the incidence of papilloma.
Clove Oil and Diabetes[From Scotland] High blood sugar in people with diabetes results in oxidative stress and inflammatory changes that contribute to vascular complications (thrombosis) and peripheral neuropathy (nerve damage in hands and feet). This study examined whether treatment with eugenol, which has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, could improve vascular and nerve function in diabetic rats. It worked better than what researchers expected and they now believe eugenol could possess some strong therapeutic benefits for neuropathy and vasculopathy in humans with diabetes.
Clove Oil for Menstrual Pain[From Egypt] Painful menstrual periods (dysmenorrhea) are a common cause of illness and absenteeism from normal activities by women in their childbearing years. This study looked at the effect of aromatherapy massage on a group of nursing students who suffered from primary dysmenorrhea. A randomized blind clinical trial of crossover design was used… A group of 48 women received aromatherapy by abdominal massage once daily for seven days prior to menstruation using the essential oils cinnamon, clove, rose, and lavender in a base of almond oil. Group 2 received the same treatment but with a placebo oil (almond oil). The level and duration of pain, and the amount of menstrual bleeding were evaluated. The level and duration of menstrual pain and bleeding were significantly lower in the aromatherapy group than in the placebo group. These results suggest that the use of essential oils in abdominal massage can be effective in alleviating menstrual pain and shortening its duration, along with limiting excessive menstrual bleeding.
Research Using Clove Oil for Depression[From India] This study investigated the effect of clove oil on depression and anxiety in animals. Small doses of clove oil were injected into the animals for a period of 3 weeks. researchers then did a series of test such as a forced swim test and the tail suspension test to assess depression and anxiety. Researchers concluded that pre-treatment with clove oil decreased depression and anxiety similar to that of psychostimulant drugs.
Research Using Clove Oil on a Microscopic Parasitic Infection that can Cause DeathResearchers have been examining whether clove oil could be used to treat visceral leishmaniasis - also called kala-azar, black fever, and Dumdum fever. Leishmaniasis is a deadly disease caused by protozoan parasites and is actually the second-largest parasitic killer in the world (after malaria), responsible for over 500,000 infections each year worldwide.
Chemotherapy drugs are the standard treatment for leishmaniasis. These drugs are expensive and come with horrible side effects. This parasitic disease is prevalent in 47 countries with approximately 200 million people at risk of infection. The parasite is spread to humans through the bite of an infected female sand fly. It attacks the immune system and is almost always fatal if not treated quickly. There are between 200,000 and 400,000 new cases a year, of which about 90 percent are in India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sudan and Brazil.
Researchers in India found that the essential oil of clove possesses significant activity against this parasite when tested on mice. The study authenticated the promising antileishmanial activity of clove oil, which could be extremely useful for the treatment of this disease in humans.
Research Using Clove Oil for Treating Lung Damage from Breathing Polluted Air[From Brazil] Breathing in diesel fumes from polluted air can cause pulmonary inflammation and can impair the functioning of the lungs. Eugenol has been found to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties in experiments with tissue samples. This study used mice to examine the possible protective role of eugenol against lung damage induced by diesel particles. Mice were exposed to diesel particles for an hour and then half were exposed to eugenol. After 24 hours, a variety of pulmonary function measures were assessed.
Interestingly, they found the mice that received eugenol exerted no changes in lung mechanics, pulmonary inflammation, and alveolar collapse (alveolar is the substance lung tissue is packed with) from exposure to the diesel particles, whereas the other mice did.
Clove Oil Kills Pathogenic Yeast[From France] The antifungal activity of clove essential oil was evaluated against 53 human pathogenic yeasts in laboratory testing. Clove oil exhibited very strong radical scavenging activity, so basically, it possesses powerful antifungal activity against human pathogenic yeasts (yeast fungus), as well as being a potent free radical scavenger and antioxidant.
Clove Oil Kills Household Dust Mites[From Thailand] The search for more eco-friendly pesticides for killing house dust mites on mattresses has prompted testing of medicinal plants. This study examined the killing power of clove extract on dust mites, as well as common bacteria and fungi. There was a significant death rate for all the bacteria and fungi. Spraying was 99% and 81% effective on killing dust mites, depending on the method used. Researchers concluded that clove oil is a promising agent for killing dust mites on mattresses. It was noted that the effect of clove oil starts to diminish after 3 months so applications every 3 months would be required to keep these pests away.
Cloves Have Been Used for Centuries…Roman author, Pliny the Elder, praised cloves, as did the great Roman doctor, Alexander Trallianus. St Hildegarde (Hildegard von Bingen), in her book “Morborum Causae et Gurae”, wrote that cloves should be included in the treatment of headaches, migraines, deafness after a cold, and dropsy. She stated that cloves will warm people who feel the cold, and cool down those who felt hot. During the Renaissance era, pomanders were made with cloves to keep illness epidemics, particularly the plague, at bay.
Using Cloves and Clove OilClove Oil has historically been used to numb the pain of a toothache – and it works exceptionally well for this. However, there are many other powerful uses that make this essential oil an important part of any home remedy kit…
When under physical or mental strain, or simply feeling tired, suck on a clove several times throughout the day. It has an agreeable taste, and acts as a relaxant. Sucking cloves is a particularly good idea for those trying to give up smoking.
The dental value of cloves is well known. They’re antiseptic and also have sedative and minor anesthetic properties too (a sucked clove will slightly numb your tongue). If you have a toothache, either suck a clove on the side of the sore tooth, or apply a cotton bud with a drop of the essential oil to the tooth. This will give you amazing relief and also helps to keep the mouth clean due to the antiseptic effect. Never use too much of the oil though, and don’t leave it on the tooth (on a piece of cotton wool for instance) as your gums could begin to flake. A good mouthwash can be made for bad breath (halitosis). All you do is boil a few cloves in a little water for 5 minutes, let it cool down, then add a few mint leaves and rinse and gargle with the strained liquid.
For rheumatic pains, mix together 1 fluid ounce of castor oil, 5 drops each of juniper and wheatgerm oils, and 5 drops of therapeutic grade organic clove oil. Rub on the affected parts and keep warm.
In popular medicine, an infusion of cloves was given to activate labor after the first pains were felt. Cloves can also help to ease labor pains.
CLOVE SOUP Serves 4
This ‘soup’ should be taken when minor discomforts start to appear at the beginning of winter – colds, sore throats or snuffles. As soon as you feel any symptoms coming on, make and drink this concoction.
2 and ½ cups beef stock, 2 onions peeled and thinly sliced, 1 bay leaf, 6 cloves, Himalayan pink rock salt to taste.
Put all the ingredients in a pan, bring to the boil, then simmer for 30 minutes. Remove the cloves and bay leaf, and serve hot.
Cloves are Better than Moth Balls…Another classic way to use cloves is to stick them in an orange for a pomander to sweeten the wardrobe and keep moths away. This is somewhat similar to what they did back in the Middle Ages to keep the plague away.
NOTE:Clove oil is often mixed with a vegetable oil (usually palm oil) and oil of pimento berries and leaves. This weakens the concentration of eugenol and makes the oil ineffective. Be sure to ONLY buy the 100% pure undiluted therapeutic grade (organic) clove bud oil so you get the most out of this powerful remedy.
This Just In…
