Are immunizations right? There are many books against it. You decide.
Have you ever tried ginseng tea? It seems it has many good things in it. Pictured here are book covers and a ginseng farm in Korea where the best ginseng in world is grown. The tea is made from the root. The best ginseng I have found is made by Il Hwa. You can buy the tea at Mrs. Hsu's website (www.HSU.com).
In the UNews (May 1995) Mrs. Hsu wrote an article called "Ginseng and Health." She wrote:
Hello, my name is Sung Bok Hsu. Thirty-four years ago I came to the United States from my homeland Korea. I entered graduate school and earned a Masters Degree in library science from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland , Ohio.
Over the years my health became very poor and I decided to leave my job as a librarian at a Lutheran Theological Seminary. In 1977, with an investment of $144, I began selling ginseng tea door to door in Columbus, Ohio. With a lot of research and prayer, I developed the Internal Cleansing Program, which has the power to clean the internal organs and enable the natural mechanisms of the body to restore itself back to good health.
Human beings were created to be pure and uncontaminated. Through our concience, our minds are meant to be able to communicate freely with God, but unwanted elements invaded our original mind through the Fall. The path of restoration involves eliminating these undesirable elements, thus regaining our original mind.
The same principle applies to our physical state. The circulatory, digestive, eliminative, and lymph systems were originally clean. Because of many years of improper eating and living habits, unwanted debris accumulated in our systems. The flow in these has now become very sluggish. Our task is to clean out those accumulations and restore our physical systems to their pure state. As we do this, the many symptoms of degenerated health will disappear. We will once again live in a state of optimal health.
This mechanical improvement of the human body can be compared to an automobile engine. A new car comes with clean oil, but the oil becomes dirty as it works to lubricate the engine. The oil is cleaned as it passes through the oil filter. However, after some time the unclean oil and the clogged filter must be replaced. If we do not replace them, the engine will show signs of sluggishness. If we ignore these signs and continue to drive, the engine and other parts will eventually break down, sometimes even beyond repair.
In comparison, the human body is a living system. It is constantly self-cleaning. But if we overload the system with impurities, eventually it cannot handle them anymore and there will be a breakdown resulting in disease.
Already, one in four Americans, now approaching one in three, face cancer. In addition, we have an immense increase of immune related disorders and heart disease. We need to overcome the notion that old age automatically means a breakdown of our bodily systems.
For more than 17 years I have been using the "Internal Cleansing Program" to clean up internal organs and to rebuild them. This comprehensive approach involves proper eating habits, moderate exercise, a positive mental outlook, and especially, getting rid of the built up toxins and waste products. For example, the colon of the average American is encumbered with a lifetime's accumulation of toxic waste. Huge sums of money are spent every year for relief from constipation. Constipation, appearing to be non life-threatening, is usually endured or ignored. But ignoring this problem, or trying to treat it with over the counter "quick-fix" remedies, can lead to more severe problems. Examples of these are hernias, hemorrhoids, and colon cancer.
There are many people who, over the past seventeen years of my program, have changed their way of life. As a result, they have experienced remarkable health improvement, such as weight loss and blood pressure regulation. Others have over come diabetes and arthritis. Because of these success stories, I now have twenty associates working with me, publish a nationally distributed newsletter and also broadcast a weekly TV show on a local public access channel. In addition, for the third year in a row, we are holding week-long Spring and Fall health retreats. The internal cleansing principles, which you are learning about through this column, together with the Unification Principles are presented for the renewal of body, mind and spirit.
However, I am not prescribing a method to eliminate debilitating conditions, but rather offer a common sense management of the temple of God.
Many Unificationists have worked hard for many years, sometimes without paying much attention to the well-being of their physical self. I meet many people who are suffering from a variety of illnesses. Some of them are light, some rather serious. Sharing this knowledge, which has already helped so many others, is the reason I decided to write this health column.
In the coming months I will share with you the details of my Cleansing Program and a few of the testimonies from those who greatly benefited from it.
May God Bless you and be well.

In an article in the Unification News (July 1995) there was the following article: "Ginseng and Inner Cleansing" by Mrs. Sung Bok Hsu who writes: In the last two articles I explained why our eating and living habits make it imperative that we cleanse our digestive and eliminative systems. It has been said that we are what we eat, however it may be more appropriate to say that we are what we digest and assimilate, and this is the area of greatest concern. Since millions of Americans suffer from digestive and eliminative problems, this is rather easily understood. However, anything that goes wrong in those systems immediately also burdens the river of life in our body-the blood stream.
The small intestine is so constructed that nutrient absorption is most efficient. A large inner surface area is provided by the accordion like folds of the intestinal wall. Lining the wall are fingerlike structures called villi. They project into the interior of the small intestine from all directions where they pick up the small molecular particles of the broken down food. From there, the blood stream and the lymph system bring these food particles to the liver which in turn passes them on to all of the cells in the body.
However, together with nutrients we also pick up toxins, either already present in the food and water we consume, or created when bad eating habits lead to their development in our digestive and eliminative systems. At that stage, what can be done? This is one area where the power of ginseng becomes apparent. Americans have known about ginseng for quite some time now and many people drink it because it gives them more energy, it strengthens their immune system, and it increases their resistance to the effects of stress that take a huge toll on the mental and physical health of Americans.
What allows ginseng to do so many things? Again, it is interesting to compare ancient wisdom with modern research. Taoists say that ginseng has the strongest agility of any herb to absorb the energy from the earth. Modern research shows that ginseng contains up to 72 trace minerals, steroids similar to male and female hormones, vitamins, minerals, and volatile oils. Researchers have also noted that many plants regarded for their health value contain significant amounts of organic germanium. It is believed that germanium in the organic form assists the body in its transport of oxygen and the removal of heavy toxins. Korean ginseng contains more organic germanium than any other plant. The modern scientific method prefers to deal with isolated substances, but with complex food like ginseng, the interaction of the many elements creates a synergistic effect. Thus, the whole root demonstrated a greater impact than any one of its constituents.
One of the results of an unhealthy diet is the formation of high levels of uric acid in the blood. This uric acid is carried by the blood stream to the joints, forming crystals, thereby producing inflammation, swelling and a great deal of pain-arthritis. Ginseng has the power not only to remove toxins and heavy metals from the blood stream, but uric acid as well, producing much needed relief for arthritis sufferers. In addition, excess uric acid can lead to the leaching of calcium from our skeletal structure leading to osteoporosis, one of the most common illnesses of women after menopause.
With the proliferation of ginseng products-teas, capsules, candies, chewing gums, even cigarettes -quality control has become a big concern for many consumers. My personal test of ginseng products always involves observing their cleansing abilities. If the ginseng is true and potent, increased urination should begin right away. By urinating more often, you experience water weight-loss immediately, and that is a good result by itself. Remember, most of the poisons in your blood leave through the kidney-urine. If you are not urinating more, how are you going to release toxins from your blood?
True Panax ginseng is almost extinct in its wild form. Farming cultivated ginseng is very difficult. The roots require very exact conditions and mineral-rich soil. The best quality ginseng comes from six year old roots. During that time the roots extract all of the beneficial minerals from the soil to such a degree that no ginseng can be grown in that soil for a good many years.
Because of the difficulties involved in bringing six-year old mature roots on the market, shortcuts are being made by quite a few growers, saving money in the process but also offering substandard ginseng at a reduced price to the consumer. This is why it is so important to become an educated consumer. In addition, Panax ginseng's rarity has led to other plants being touted as ginseng. Thus you may find tienchi ginseng, pseudo ginseng, Siberian ginseng, and others. Though these may be healthy plants in their own right, they will not provide all of the benefits of authentic Panax ginseng. Only American ginseng, Panax quinquefolium, is closely related. One thing is for sure, you cannot get authentic, high quality Panax ginseng for a low price.
By now a pattern of true health care is beginning to emerge. All of the bodily systems are interconnected. Lack of balance and toxins in one system immediately affect the function of the others. The starting point for true preventive health care as well as rejuvenation of ourselves has to be proper eating habits, on the foundation of a clean, functionable, well-tuned body. I will explain a healthful eating and food combining plan in a future installment of this series. Before that, my next column will address the cleansing of our second circulatory system which is hardly ever thought of by most people-the lymph system.
May God Bless you and be well."
Everyone over the age of 35 should take the painless test at an eye doctor's office to see if they are getting glaucoma. If detected in time, there are eye drops that can keep a person having good sight for many years. If not detected, many wake up and find themselves blind. You might want to visit the website, www.glaucoma.com.
Kirby Puckett was a 10-time all star for the Minnesota Twins. One morning he woke up and was blind in one eye. There is no cure to reverse it. He was forced to retire from baseball. He was in his 30's and in perfect health according to the physicals he took every year. But he never had his eyes checked for glaucoma. If he had, he could have kept his sight until old age. Now he travels and speaks out for testing.
Are you dehydrated?
NBC News had an article saying, "Many americans may be in chronic states of mild dehydration, according to a recent review of fluid needs in the Journal of the American Dietic Assoication." To read the rest of the article, click here.
