THE ASTERACEAE FAMILY:

We are told in Genesis 2 that the Lord took the man, and put  him in the Garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.  And the Lord commanded the man saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:  But of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it:  For in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.  Then we are told in Genesis 3 that after sin entered into the Garden of Eden, the Lord God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done?  And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.  Unto the woman the Lord said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.  And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all of the days of thy life;  Thorns also and thistles shall bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field.  In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken; for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

 

Though the curse of sin has caused the earth to bring forth thorns and thistles, there are flowers upon the thistles, and the thorns are hidden by the roses.  All things in nature testify to the tender fatherly care of our God and His desire to make His children happy.  Once the pain of sin entered this world, spines and thorns appeared on certain families of plants for the purpose of reminding us of our sinful nature and His wonderful plan for our redemption.  By reducing inflammation and enhancing other healthy properties, these families of plants reduce pain and suffering.

 

It is well known that men and women are made with the innate ability of reproducing generation after generation.  If it were not so, we would not be alive to tell you so.  The female reproductive system in particular is very complex and it requires precise timing. When the time clock in the human organism looses it's biologic rhythm, it produces pain as a defense mechanism.  The Asteraceae Compositae Family is composed of a composite of plants which produce flowers and seeds that are designed to reduce pain and suffering in the female reproductive system.  This composite of plants is composed of the following species: 

1- Sunflowers:

As the weaker of the two genders of the human organism, women suffer from stress, and often times do not get their duties done until late at night.  This goes on day and night week after week.  As we study Circadian Rhythm, we know that in the beginning, the day was separated from the darkness, every 24 hrs., and then there was a greater light called the sun, and a lesser light called the moon, created to separate the day from the night.  We know that the Word of God is a light unto our feet and a lamp unto our path, and is sharper than a two edged sword cutting both ways.  In the human organism, there are stellar neurotransmit-ters, one called Cortisol, to govern the day, and another called Melatonin to govern the night.  As the world turns on it's axis, depending on where we are situated on the face of the earth and the season of the year, sometimes the days are shorter and the nights are longer, and other times, the days are longer and the nights are shorter.  When the days are longest, and the nights are shortest or vice versa, these hormones modulate according to the governance of Vitamin D much like Polaris the Northern Star.  When men and women are under stress, the body converts Melatonin to Cortisol.  The Sunflower helps the body to adapt to changes by modulating Melatonin and Cortisol on a daily basis.  

2- Endives:

In women, when their menstrual cycles are irregular, there is a tendency for the uterus to retain free radical toxins and endometrial tissue that over time may degenerate into forming fibromas, excessive bleeding and or cancer.  Every menstrual cycle can be divided into 4 phases.  The first phase stimulates the follicular hormone into assembling the production of estrogen.  The second and third phases produce estrogen and the fourth phase produces progesterone which sustains fetal growth and development of a pregnant uterus.  In the Netherlands, a medical study was performed on 62,000 women giving them one cup of Endives, which reduced the incidence of cancer of the ovaries by 75%.  If it were not for the timing between the two spikes of estrogen on day 14 of a 28 day menstrual cycle, whereby ovulation occurs, the reproduction of the entire human race would cease to exist.  It is due to the dominion over the female hormonal cycle that women are able to prevent disease and remain vibrant even unto old age.  

3- Chamomile:

The uterus in a woman is made by design for the purpose of nurturing the growth and development of a fetus during pregnancy.  In a non-occupied uterus, during one phase it's blood vessels constrict and menstruation stops, then during another phase, in the absence of pregnancy, the blood vessels relax which is then followed by menstruation.  

 

Depending on the phase women are in, Chamomile  may cause uterine contractions or it may cause muscle relaxation.   Chamomile has been applied as an herbal tea but due to it's equivocal effects of the uterus it has been recommended that women do not take it during pregnancy.  Chamomile has anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial,  anti-carcinogenic, anti-diarrheal, anti-spasmodic, and anti-coagulant properties that reduces hemorrhoids, pre-menstrual cramps, menstrual colic, muscle spasms, anxiety and insomnia, among other things.

4- Dandelion:

During pregnancy, women are predisposed to congestion in the abdomen and pelvis where fluid is retained which may cause blood pressure to rise and increase the risk of infection in the gallbladder, liver, pancreas, bladder, kidneys and colon.  When women take dandelion during pregnancy, it helps to reduce inflammation and infection.  Dandelion is a laxative that facilitates the elimination of putrefaction in the colon, it is a natural diuretic which helps to reduce blood pressure, it's anti-infective properties reduces infection in the gall bladder and liver, it decongests the pancreas, and reduces insulin resistance in pregnant women predisposed to gestational diabetes.  It's dispersal mechanism gives it dominion over other plants by allowing it's seeds to be dispersed by the wind to the four corners of the earth, whereever the wind blows.  

 

5- Milk Thistle:

There is a belief among investigators that study the evolution of cancer that chronic inflammation can promote tissue degeneration, followed by chaos, resulting in an attack against self called auto-immunity that permits the growth and development of cancer instead of killing it.  When newborn babies drink cows milk made by design for calves instead of maternal milk made by design specifically for the needs of a baby by it's mother, even though cow's milk may be good for calves, it is not what is best for human babies.  This practice of drinking cow's milk is further challenged by the fact that most of the cows have been injected with hormones to enhance the milk production.  As the udders in cows are overly suctioned to extract this milk production, they repeatedly become inflamed, resulting in recurrent infection.  In order for the udders to heal, a hug amount of antibiotics are required to get rid of these infections.  On the other hand, Milk Thistle, when taken by mothers who are breast feeding, can enhance their milk production without increasing the risk of infection because Milk Thistle contains Taxifolin, a flavenoid that reduces pain by reducing tissue degeneration, auto-immunity and cancer of the ovary and breast.  

 

6- Artichokes:

It is know that as time goes on, women undergoe progressive much like the seasons of the year.  Much like spring, the is a time to be born followed by growth and development like a flower that blooms at the time of their first menstrual cycle.  Much like summer, there is a time to court and get married that develops into a time to get married that develops into a time to get pregnant.  Much like fall, there is a time to raise children and watch them grow up and get married.  Much like winter, there is a time to enjoy your children and enjoy their children's children, and as the world goes around, pass on the legacy of the fruit of the spirit that has been made.  Observing the sucession of things that occur in women, it is important for women to remain vibrant year after year.  

 

Within Global Artichokes, there is an enzyme called HMG-CoA Reductase that helps women's bodies to convert cholesterol into estrogen and progesterone.  This helps women to remain vibrant year after year as the world goes around.  

 

The Creator of man has arranged the living machinery of our bodies.  Every function is wonderfully and wisely made.  And God pledged Himself to keek this human machinery in healthful action if the human agent will obey His laws and cooperate with God.  Every law governing the human machinery is to be considered just as truly divine in origin, in character, and in importance as the word of God.
