In a well researched book called Back To Eden by Jethro Kloss we find a small section devoted to the benefits of Oatmeal water in the prevention and curing of contagious diseases.“Oatmeal is one the finest foods we have today to prevent disease” (Back to Eden, Kloss p.581) There are many stories of railroad workers in the old times who labored through harsh winters using this remedy and never got sick. There are also many other successful tales of curing illness using this old-fashioned remedy on children. In our modern-day world we have replaced natural home remedies like this one, with synthetic pills and syrups. The pharmaceutical industries have developed medicine that will suppress the symptoms of disease without actually curing it. The point is if people understood the health benefits of this miracle drink it would save them a lot of time, money and stress.
The key to understanding how this works is simple: when Oatmeal water boils it becomes what is known as a mucilage. Mucilaginous foods can actually strengthen and repair our mucus membranes when eaten. If you're wondering what the significance of this is listen closely. During a cold or flu our mucus membranes can become a breeding ground for bacteria and viruses. Naturally the body's white blood cells will trap these invaders and envelop them in mucus, expelling them through coughing and sneezing. The Oatmeal drink encourages and strengthens the bodies natural function of curing itself, it doesn't suppress it. The drink will actually increase the body's ability to expel contaminated mucus, thereby curing the body of many forms of zymotic diseases. Our mucus membranes constantly clean itself by rebuking dust, germs, viruses, and pollution we come in contact with everyday. Oatmeal water can also be taken in preventive measures, this is because when we keep our mucus membranes clean the bad guys have no time to build up in our bodies.
Oats are also very powerful foods when we look at them from a nutritional standpoint. They happen to be one of the riches sources of silicon we have. Silicon, not to be mistaken with silicone, is the second most available element found in the Earth’s crust. It is a vital trace mineral required by the body for strong flexible joints, glowing skin, stronger bones, strengthening of connective tissues, healthy hair, nails and teeth. This is important because proper nourishment during times of sickness is vital when we often suffer from lack of appetite and weakness. The power within the oats gives us a strong foundation for recovering from disease.
If you've been reading this and want to know how to make it yourself, the Oatmeal water recipe is as follows: boil one quart of water and then add two heaping tablespoons of organic rolled oats (not instant; they lack the slippery smoothness that is so important here). You can make it stronger or weaker to suit your taste. Reduce heat to simmer and cook slowly for 20 minutes, remove from heat and let sit until almost cool, whisk mixture and strain out the oatmeal; the cloudy water that’s left is oatmeal water. Shake well before pouring into a glass. Start off with about a pint a day or as much as you need until you start feeling better, it's safe enough to enjoy copious quantities of this oatmeal water all day long during a cold or flu. In conclusion, just as Mr. Kloss stated, we can greatly improve our health with by incorporating this Super Food into our daily diet. I hope you have found this information helpful, thank you for your time, and God bless.
