It's a lengthy read, but the second to the last line addresses the Herpes virus. Here ya go:
We’ve got a grape show for you! Today on Alternative Health I am paying tribute to the Grape!!! Grapes are great! They come in all colors and do all kinds of wonderful things! You name it they do it!
Grapes impacted my life many years ago when I read a small book written by a lady from South Africa. It was called “The Grape Cure”. The setting was in South Africa in the early 1900’s, this young lady had just been diagnosed with stomach cancer. The tumor was so large, she said she looked pregnant.
At that time the doctors told her there was little to nothing that could be done. She prayed and prayed for some type of answer. All she could hear deep inside was grapes! So grapes it was! She lived close to the grape orchards and so they were plentiful. She juiced them, she ate them, she pressed them, and she munched on the seeds. She said she ate all colors of grapes and sizes! Different variations of grapes come in, in different seasons, so she could eat them year round! One day she could hardly get them down and within moments she began to vomit!
Up came the tumor! She vomited up the tumor! Amazing!
Well, after reading that book, you can see why I became a grape fan and my theme song, (sing – Whoa, I heard it through the grape vine) …OK, Ok, I can’t get side tracked…if you’ve got something to “grape about”. (Snort, Snort) This show is for you! Watch this!
Grapes for every one! Red, purple, black & green! I love them all…And they all do wonderful things for you! They make you smart, keep you looking young, fight off disease and a whole lot more! What’s in ‘em? Seeds! That is if you get the best kind.
We get so sophisticated and want seedless! My mother always told me if I ate the seeds I would get a tummy ache! Well, what mama didn’t know is if I did eat the seeds I may never be sick again! It’s so hard to find anything with seeds and yet in many cases that where the good stuff is. Now we’re forced to supplement so that we can get the good stuff that’s in those beautiful grapes.
Ok, enough already! Don’t make me say this twice! Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins, See I told you, don’t make me say it again. From now on we will kindly refer to this beneficial ingredient as OPCs. Much easier to pronounce! OPCs – grape seeds, wonderful grape seeds!
