Raoul’s 2 Cents
If you knew someone who was lost in his/her problem and you had a solution, would you share it? Would you interfere in his/her life? If someone were dying of cancer and you had a magic pill would you share that information even if they said they were not interested? Would you risk your friendship for the sake of saving the person’s life?
I have a health tip to share with you today. Just to be clear, I am not a health practitioner (no degrees … nothing!) and I do not own stocks to this product. I only speak as a user who benefited from this. I’ve been wanting to share this with you for a long time but I wasn’t sure if I wanted to risk our friendship this way. Today I decided I will take the risk.
I learned about this through my friend Sam who shared this with me over lunch a few months ago. Sam has had a very high blood pressure for a long time. Then someone told him about Mukta Vati — an Indian supplement that comes in tiny capsules. He said that his doctor couldn’t believe how effective it was when Sam went to his last checkup. I couldn’t believe it was possible either. But I was willing to give it a try. There are several distributors for this supplement but I found the cheapest to be about $9 for a box of 4 strips, each containing 30 pills (or a total of 120 pills). The rest of the box was written in Sanskrit (I think) and that made me even more skeptical. But Sam said it was herbal so overdosing on this was highly unlikely. There wasn’t even any instruction about the dosage. Sam said he took 2 capsules in the morning and 2 at night. I figured I would try just 2 in the morning. I warn you, It tastes like grass … Indian Bermuda grass (as if I’d ever eaten grass before).
I thought nothing about it for a week or two. Then one day I decided to check my blood pressure. My normal reading with Lisinopril (the medication my doctor prescribed) averaged around 154/95. So I was shocked to see that it had gone down to 124/81. I had to take another reading just to make sure and indeed, my blood pressure had gone down dramatically. My doctor couldn’t believe it. I told him about it and he said his wife would try it.
I’ve shared this pill with several people and the only 2 negative feedback I got was 1) it made someone’s stomach queezey after her blood pressure went down and 2) another had to lessen the dosage because her blood pressure went too low.
Again, I am just sharing my experience. Don’t come running after me if you turn into the Hulk — go after Sam! Share this with people you know who are courting a heart attack or a stroke. My doctor said I should continue with both his prescription and Mukta Vati since it obviously helps.
If you do try it, tell me about it. I’m very curious to know the results. Cool?
Back to my original question (but speaking in spiritual terms) do you ever wonder why they say that “Jesus saves?” “Saved from what?” — you may ask. Think about it. Now can you blame Christians for risking their friendship in order to share their faith with others? With you? Do you hate me for sharing my faith every once in a while? I hope you know, I have no vested interest but to help. You know I mean well, right?
There’s a “magic pill” for your soul … and it ain’t Mukta Vati.

Ron Reagan’s Witty Remarks

He’s a political figure so you may have some qualms about him. But you gotta admit, he was one of the wittiest comedic talent to ever sit at the Oval Office. It’s admirable that during his era people from opposing political perspectives cooperated with each other. Let’s hope we can come back to that.WATCH VIDEO
