Hubby &  myself  have stepped back & have  "realize" WE are  60 +

We like many need to take Control & Care  for our health before it's to late.

Hubby is a Diabetic & we found he now can take total Control.

With one glass of  Okra that he let's sit over night.

Cut the ends off of a 2 okra, put in a 8 oz of water overnight,

the next day remove the okra and drink the water...

It will have a "Syrup" Consistency & that is what it is to look like..

Hubby still takes his insulin shots & will untill his readings are consistent & he see's his Doctor.

Everything created by God. Tested on humans, the results, according to tests were miraculous!

My Hubby's sugar went from 200's to 100's one week.

His Doctor did drop his Insulin drown,

we did notice when he snacked on the wrong thing at night

his sugar went up.  .This is not a Quit fix.. & you must be consistent with drinking the Okra water..

One volunteer said that their blood glucose decreased from 300 to 150.Another, fell from 195 to 94-and even said that the okra water played the role of insulin, very well done".

Share this, as it will surely help many!!! — Paul Belshaw

Fruits & Veggie are put here to keep you Healthy..:)

Broiled white sea bass

Dietitian's tip:
Serve these broiled sea bass fillets over a bed of sauteed spinach, which adds vitamin A, folate, riboflavin, calcium and iron to your meal. If you prefer, you can substitute red snapper, halibut or cod for the sea bass.
By Mayo Clinic staff
Serves 2


2 white sea bass fillets, each 4 ounces
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt-free herbed seasoning blend
Ground black pepper, to taste

Preheat the broiler (grill). Position the rack 4 inches from the heat source.

Lightly spray a baking pan with cooking spray. Place the fillets in the pan. Sprinkle the lemon juice, garlic, herbed seasoning and pepper over the fillets.

Broil (grill) until the fish is opaque throughout when tested with a tip of a knife, about 8 to 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
