A friend’s only surviving parent has just been diagnosed with a serious illness that’s been prescribed only palliative therapy.
This friend is contemplating further investigations but the attending doctor’s opinion is that there isn’t much point, especially when such investigations could trigger other side effects.
Naturally this friend is troubled and sad; ditto me although I’ve only met the parent on a couple of occasions. However, I’ve got this weakness of allowing other people’s sadness get to me as if by osmosis.
I prayed for friend’s parent to have a positive outcome. I suggested to friend to try food therapy for sick parent.
And barely had my email gone out to friend when I received an email from another friend — who doesn’t know friend with sick parent at all and who hasn’t been in touch with me for weeks — with a food recipe that addressed the sick parent’s illness exactly!
Sure, CA is a sickness of almost epidemic proportions in Singapore nowadays and there are many chain emails touting miracle cures through food therapy.
But the latest chain email I received is something new (at least to me) and the therapy suggested is entirely resfreshing (at least to me) — and you don’t need to be wanting a cure or to prevent illness to enjoy it.
For the curious, I’m sharing the recipe (below) but I’m with-holding the claims in case I get accused of promoting quakery.
You need one potato, one carrot and one apple that combine together to make the JUICE !
Wash the potato, carrot and apple but don’t peel the skin. Cut into pieces and put them into the juicer. Drink the juice immediately after it’s made. Add some lime or lemon for a more refreshing taste.
WHEN TO DRINK IT?
DRINK IT FIRST THING IN THE MORNING ON AN EMPTY STOMACH! AFTER AN HOUR, HAVE BREAKFAST. FOR FAST RESULTS, DRINK TWICE A DAY, IN THE MORNING AND BEFORE 5 P.M.
So was the email with the recipe for this drink a co-incidence or a miracle? Only time will tell. Meanwhile, I tried the concoction myself today and if nothing else, I found it a pleasant drink!
