can be certain that juicing watermelon is beneficial to your
health. It has been known to flush out accumulation of uric
acid in the system. Anyone dealing with arthritis, gout or
uremic poisoning would probably greatly benefit from juicing
watermelon twice a day in the morning and evening. Also
eruptions on the surface of the skin usually indicate an
acidic condition in the blood. This comes from eating too
much meat, fried food, sweets and white flour products as
well as drinking a lot of coffee, soda, etc. Watermelon
juice flushes a lot of the acid from the system and renews
the blood. When this happens the skin will start looking
and feeling better. One cup of watermelon contains 11 mg.

What is Saffron
Saffron is the reddish-orange
stigmas of a special variety of crocus. It originated in
Arabia and was brought to Spain in the eighth century and
today Spain is the major exporter of this spice. Saffron is
quite costly. The process of this spice is remarkable. About
200,000 dried stigmas from about 70,000 flowers are needed to
produce just one pound.
The therapeutic effects of saffron, crocus sativus, primarily
strengthens the heart and nervous system. It aids digestion,
by increasing the appetite and can help relieve nosebleeds,
fatigue and exhaustion.
Saffron is mainly bought for culinary purposes, a small pinch
goes a long way, but today people are coming back to it for
herbal medicinal reasons. Saffron milk is becoming quite
popular and can be bought in some local groceries today. The
saffron milk is a flavourful, soothing drink that can be
helpful in relieving cardiac problems. To
make it yourself, bring one cup of milk just to a boil, add a
pinch of saffron, reduce the heat and simmer the mixture for
two minutes. sweeten it with honey to taste and drink it once
Rubbing your gums with saffron can reduce soreness and
inflammation. Crush a few threads of saffron into a powder and
use your index finger to massage gently into your gums.
Be careful when purchasing saffron. It is sometimes
adulterated with other spices. true saffron is expensive and
has a deep orange to brownish red colour. The redder the
strands, the better the quality. Yellow saffron has no
curative properties. Choose whole saffron threads over powder
saffron. The threads have a better flavour and the curative
qualities are higher. When you store saffron, store in an
airtight container in a dark, cool place. Don't let it get
damp or you will end up losing it all together. Don't add
saffron threads directly to foods, the flavour is better
distributed when the spice is first allowed to soften in a
little warm water. Wait until the water takes on a yellow
colour and then add it to your dish. Plus use it sparingly.
Adding too much can produce a bitter taste and it has been
known a large dosage can make a person feel ill, and more than
1/3 oz. can be fatal. By D. Naibert

two glasses of Gatorade can relieve headache pain almost

Natural Healing Reiki can relieve pain and acute
problems very quickly. Chronic illnesses require a series of
treatments (10-12) followed by a maintenance program of one
session monthly for as long as the patient feels the need.
Reiki is very useful for anyone taking a course of prescribed
drugs. It reduces some of the side effects of drug therapy,
makes the body more receptive to medication and helps the body
to recover after the drug course finishes.
Whatever manifests itself physically, usually also has
components on the emotional, mental and spiritual levels.
Reiki goes beyond superficial symptoms to treat the root cause
of dis-ease. Physical illnesses like thyroid dysfunctions,
sore throat, swollen gland, tonsils, laryngitis, mouth ulcers,
gum diseases, neck stiffness, all have to do with the Fifth
Energy Center of the body. This is our ‘Will’ center. It
measures how honestly we express ourselves. Promoting and
normalizing energy flow, by the use of Reiki, to this area,
treats underlying problems of self-expression (throat
problems), decisive power (gum problems), choosing not to make
a choice e.g., by repressing anger (laryngitis and jaw
problems), humiliation and impatience (thyroid problems), and
other problems around the issues of faith, knowledge,
addictions, compulsive behavior etc.

Spirit of May Day
Dear children, Hope all is good at your end. For the
newsletter this time, I have chosen to write about “Labor
day” also known as “May day” to emphasize
upon the economic and social significance of this
internationally observed day.
All men are created equal, gifted with equal rights to life,
liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Whether he is a
salaried worker, a laborer, a peasant getting daily wages or a
corporate manager, he has equal rights to enjoy life and get
reward for his efforts and work. Labor day is celebrated to
pay tribute to the laborers for their contributions to the
development of world, to unveil the exploitation done to them
and to take measures to stop it.
When was the first Labor Day celebrated is a controversial
question. The popular story is the one related to the Labor
strikes in 1880s when the laborers decided to stand up and
oppose injustice done to them. From the beginning of the
Industrial Revolution, people in factories have worked very
long shifts, lasting up to fourteen or more hours a day.
During the 1880s a new movement calling for an eight-hour day
inspired both labor unions and unorganized workers. In 1884,
the Federation of trade and labor unions adopted a resolution
in its convocation stating that from May 1, 1886, eight hours
shall constitute a legal day's work. Workers were requested to
strike at companies that did not recognize the eight-hour day.
This demand put pressure on employers and some of them reduced
the work hours to eight per day. However, most employers
refused to reduce working hours. This compelled the suffering
workers to go on strike on May 1, 1886 called by the
federation. A massive rally was held at Haymarket where
prominent leaders of Labor Union made speeches. Due to chaos
and hot words used in speech riot erupted and police fired at
the crowd killing four of their leaders - the Haymarket
The effort and massive campaign did not go unnoticed. After
1886 rallies, strikes and other militant actions promoted the
cause of the working class around the world. With the passage
if time, nations worldwide became conscious about the rights
of labor class. It resulted in passing of municipal ordinances
ensuring better working conditions, better pay, and better
living condition for the laborers. From then on May 1 is
celebrated each year as “Labor day”.
On May day street parades are held to exhibit the strength of
the trade and labor organizations. Speeches are made by
prominent workers to highlight the issues related to labor
class. A festival for the recreation and amusement of the
workers and their families usually follows.
Most countries now have better protection for workers; shorter
work weeks, longer holidays, better unemployment insurance,
better welfare, better pensions, better job training programs,
safer workplace etc.
The spirit of the day demands us to respect and honor workers.
We, as children can do our part of the job by being
considerate to the labors around us, including the sweepers at
homes and schools, drivers, gardeners, maids and servants, and
all those who serve and make life pleasant for us. We should
not burden them with too much workload. When they are ill, we
should excuse them from some of the tasks and help them
morally and financially, as the circumstances permit. Be
polite in talking to them and let them know that they are also
important to you. Our Prophet (saw) said that a laborer is a
friend of God. He gave a lot of respect to those who work hard
for their earnings with their hands.
