"These cookies take all the bitterness out of your heart and calm your nerves. They open your heart and your five senses, provide for a good mood and cleanse your senses; [they] reduce all bad juices, provide for good blood quality and make you productive and strong."

The cookies are an ideal remedy for nerves, to increase efficiency and support mental abilities, concentration, vitality and strengthening of the sense organs. They provide for a good mood eliminating gloominess and sadness.

Our health requires that we keep our inner harmony and contentment even during times of stress by not letting the stress affect us without controlling it. With stress our resistance collapses and disease can take its destructive path. Too many oxygen radicals bombard body cells and the gall bladder "over-sours" the blood. This is how auto-immune diseases develop where body cells may get attacked auto-agressively by one's own immune system. Traditional medicine recognizes over 20,000 mostly incurable auto-agressive diseases such as cancer, heart attack, rheumatoid arthritis, excema, diabetes, colitis and asthma, to name only a few.

Constant stress puts our body into a state of alarm and signalizes that we are in a life-threatening situation. This raises not only blood pressure but also the level of cortisol and weight. The body pads itself with fatty tissue to cope with this emergency. Only when the constant stress ceases will both the high blood pressure and the weight plummet.
