Siberian Pine - THE BREAD TREE
As early as the 16th century, a Siberian Pine grove, a desyatina in size, grew in the lands of the Tolgsky monastery near Yaroslavl. Around fifty of the trees which grew there are still alive and bear nuts today, despite the fact that they are more than 400 years old. At present, Siberian Pine forests in Europe cover an aggregate area of several thousand hectares.
There are many reasons to love and look after cedars. A Siberian Pine forest has a special microclimate, which ensures that it is always rich in berries, mushrooms, useful herbs and wildlife. Siberian Pine nuts are a wonderful natural product. They contain a lot of fat, proteins, carbohydrates, micro elements and vitamins. They can also be used to make Siberian Pine Nut Oil, which could compete with olive oil.
The people of Siberia praise the Siberian Pine as the bread tree. They look after Siberian Pine forests near their settlements and turn them into forest orchards. They say that in ancient times, a desyatina of Siberian Pine forest was equal in value to a cow.
The large-scale industrial use of the taiga, which began this century, was an extremely unfortunate development for the Siberian Pine. This is, primarily, because the Siberian Pine is extremely good for logging. Siberian Pine trunks produce a large volume of timber and are easy to process. Nothing comes close to them in the taiga. Some cedars can produce up to ten cubic meters of timber. And no ordinary timber at that! It's soft, pleasantly colored, easy to work and convenient for any purpose. You can make anything out of a Siberian Pine trunk: a house frame, a door and doorframe, furniture or house wares. You can put any clothes in a Siberian Pine chest or wardrobe without worry. Moths won't get to them because the aromatic, tarry smell will repel them. Siberian Pine planks are the most sought-after raw material for pencil factories. Siberian Pine wood has excellent resonance qualities and is used to make grand pianos, harps and guitars.
They say that during the last century Siberian merchants were offered what appeared to be a very profitable deal by Germans for the supply of Siberian Pine Nut Oil. The only stipulation was that it was packaged into Siberian Pine barrels. It turned out that there was a catch. The Siberian Pine Nut Oil containers were sold on to a musical instrument manufactory and the foreign traders made twice as much for them as they paid for the Siberian Pine Nut Oil.
In addition, good cedars grow along rivers, which makes them very easy to log. You cut down a tree and send it downstream - it will get to the destination by itself. Needless to say, this didn't end well for the Siberian Pine, the rivers, or the birds and animals it protected.
Foresters have long since understood that you cannot treat Siberian Pine forests with the loggers' usual attitude. The earth and everything it produces is important in a Siberian Pine forest. The overall products of a living Siberian Pine forest are far more valuable that its wonderful and extremely valuable wood, produced by cutting down the whole forest.
Experts believe that allowing Siberian Pine Nut Oil to come into contact with metal is not recommended (therefore it should not be stored or consumed using metallic objects). The Ekaterinburg Journeyman Foundation, a producer of Siberian Pine products, explains this as follows:
"Contact between the oil and metal initiates the transformation of unsaturated fatty acids into saturated ones, which significantly reduces the oil's antioxidational properties. The natural information is also neutralized."
There are many options for administering the oil when treating various diseases. The most effective and common method of consuming Siberian Pine Nut Oil for preventive purposes is 1 tea spoon 30-60 minutes before a meal 2-3 times a day for 40-60 days. Consume very slowly, as if diluting the oil with saliva.
Siberian Pine Nut Oil has been used for treatment purposes at:
-The Siberian State Medical University
-The Tomsk Scientific Research Institute of Balneology and Physiotherapy
-The Central Scientific Research Laboratory
-The TSC RAMS Scientific Research Oncology Institute
-The Rehabilitation Center for those affected by the Chernobyl disaster
Treatment involving Siberian Pine Nut Oil was administered to people suffering from gastritis, erosive and ulcer diseases of the stomach and duodenum, people who were operated on as a result of stomach cancer, people suffering from astenization, psychosis, and increased excitability of the sympathetic nervous system (increased fatigue, inability to work or sleep, common nervous breakdowns, and regular headaches).
Treatment was effective in all cases to varying degrees.
