Summary

In A. D. 70, the Roman commander Titus marched through Palestine, leveling the once beautiful city of Jerusalem. For Samah, a young Samaritan woman caught inside Titus's siege wall, it was the beginning of three years of suffering with other residents of the holy city. Now, though, having unwittingly saved the life of a dog belonging to a powerful Roman tribune, Samah finds herself bound for Rome as the dog owner's slave. Did Jehovah send this dog simply to help Samah reach an arrogant tribune with the truth of His Word? Or could there be more to their unusual relationship?

    Pomegranate - The Super Fruit 
    A Thousand Year Secret Healing Power Revealed! 
     Learn How to prevent Heart Disease, High Cholesterol, Stroke and So Much More 
    Each of us probably knows someone who suffers from one or more so-called “disease of civilization.” These diseases - which include obesity, diabetes, hypertension, stroke, high cholesterol and heart disease - are ailments that seem to disproportionately affect members of Western society compared to those in other parts of the world. Oddly enough, all of the diseases mentioned above are affected in some way by your diet. 
    For years, I lived with extra weight. Okay, extra weight is underselling it a bit. I was obese. Not just that, but I suffered from a battery of related illnesses that often go hand-in-hand with obesity, namely high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes. At one point, my doctor warned me that my dietary habits had me on a surefire collision course and if something in me didn’t change, no amount of prescription writing could save me from the fate that lay ahead – heart disease. 
    Well, you know doctors. They offer lots of advice and plenty of stern warnings. You can get sort of immune. I did. Needless to say, I didn’t listen. That is, until a bout with chest pain landed me in the ER. I’d had a heart attack. 
    That warning I heeded. 
    I decided the doctor was right. If I was going to live and enjoy a good quality of life, I had to change my habits once and for all. It wasn’t easy at first. If you have ever attempted to swap out your old habits for new habits, you probably know what I mean. 
    Some habits, like eating, require more than just a simple menu change. In order for my changes to be effective long-term, I had to learn what it would take to stay healthy and promote my desire for a better lifestyle over my emotional desire for a temporary sugar-high, which food often provided for me. Not easy, but certainly doable. 
    The first thing I did was cut back on my intake of refined sugars (love ‘em) and simple carbs (doubly love ‘em). Talk about painful. The next thing I did was conducted some serious research on alternative medicine and all-natural healing techniques. I studied Ayurvedic medicine. I even took a trip to India to really gain some insight into ways to use Ayurvedic medicine to help my body heal from years and years of malnutrition and dietary abuse. The trip was both eye-opening and, I believe, life-saving. 
    My research helped me to uncover and successfully apply natural healing techniques to restore my body’s natural balance. After years of developing and solidifying my poor diet habits, it took just a few years for me to unlearn my poor nutrition habits and train my body to long for the foods that would help to keep it disease-free. Believe it or not, a significant part of that discovery is centered around the healing qualities of the pomegranate. 
    My goal is to share what I found in this easy-to-read guide so that maybe I can help to keep you from going down the same road I took.  And maybe – just maybe – help you to restore your own health.  -Jasmin Carerra 
    From childhood, I always enjoyed Pomegranate fruit for its taste and the beautiful color, but never knew all these benefits and healing power she mentioned, a truly eye opening book indeed. -  Carmen Rodriguez
