7 Angels of Thwarted Passion – Herbs to Change Inherited Energy Patterns

It’s unbelievable – the effect that the lives of our ancestors have on us, whether an animal or a human or a plant, . The more people and animals I made treatments for, the more I realize how important it is to deal with underlying patterns of energy management to find complete release from ill-health ourselves.

In our times, the first line of action to treat a condition is to treat the symptoms of it. If it’s an infection, take an antibiotic, if it’s a pain, take a painkiller.

But my Granddad gave people a drink and never bothered his time over the symptoms beyond that. He used to say to me,

“Check if their heart’s flowing out right. See where the Passion’s stopped. Say hello to that place. And then keep the hell away while they explode. “

Passion – there’s no other word for it – is life energy. It is so powerful that if it was suppressed or thwarted generations ago it stays there in the consciousness and passes down and has its effects generation after generation.

The classical homeopaths called inherited energy patterns “miasms”. They’re a sort of inherited consciousness illness.

Believe it or not, one of the most common miasms is called the ‘syphilis miasm’ and is supposed to be the energy pattern inherited from an ancestor with syphilis that didn’t fully get cured.

Now I was curious about that, because if syphilis is just an infection, how on earth can that affect someone 7 generations down?

Granddad explained to me that the condition that expressed itself as infection was actually thwarted or suppressed passion or life energy. And it was so powerful as to create an energy field that chronically mismanaged passion or life energy resulting in dysfunction on several levels. This pattern of consciousness has a snowballing effect through the generations and finally reaches a point where one of the descendants is so debilitated that they have to stop life as normal and deal with it.

Eggs and sperm don’t contain actual toxins from our ancestors, but they do carry the entire energy field and all its experiences. That’s how we get ‘racial memory’ and inherited tendencies towards illnesses.

Those who carry patterns of passion suppression just know it. Because the No. 1 sign of it is, they simply feel unable to express their feelings physically. They can feel their feelings, they can describe them, but they cannot EXPRESS them to their satisfaction.

This is the tip of a pyramid of energy patterns in the body and system that suppress life energy, and as a result of which there are often huge pockets of unreleased toxins – actual physical toxins – or small pockets of toxins in particular key areas causing problems.

In a body, very often, as these are the result of consciousness frozen in time, these can be experienced as some parts of the body not vibrating at the same frequency as other parts of the body. It literally feels like those cells are in another time altogether while the surrounding cells are in a different time.

Imagine a country where every mile, one village’s date is 1800 and the next village is 1926 and the next one is 1500 and the next one is 1980 and the next 2020. How would communication, transport and everyday life be possible in that country when they don’t have a common time?

It’s just chaos and havoc.

So without further ado, here are my 7 Angels of Time Release – complete troublemakers each of them, that not only release deep and buried toxins from the body, but change the energy patterns that keep them there.

7 Angel Herbs to Repair Life Energy Suppression Patterns

1) Blue Flag – Iris Versicolor

This one’s a famous old remedy for releasing ‘deep’ toxins. I’ve always seen Iris as the flower that blooms at the very beginning of spring starting off the season.

Suppression of the feelings associated with the timing of the flowering of a plant is often healed and resolved by the taking of that plant as medicine.

That feeling of beginning – the years of life when Passion stirs inside us for the first time, around puberty usually, but for some people earlier and for some later, when that early passion is suppressed or thwarted – whether it was love for music or nature or a person, that becomes a ball of rage in the gut of a person creating anger patterns.

Energy patterns where the body has huge rushes of energy sometime and is totally limp and weak at other times, never seeming to be in the right mood at the right time, go back to suppression of the first rising of passion.

Diabetes – or an imbalance in the way the body manages sugar or sweetness – is a very common symptom of this sort of energy suppression.

Chronic allergies are also an example of the body not being able to balance energy flow, overeating sometimes and then going tired in-between bouts or over-reactions.

Chronic blood toxicity, insufficient breast milk in a mother, and disappointing or insufficient sexual release are all indications of suppression of first passion and Blue Flag or Iris will help.

It would have to be taken – a small dose – a drop to 25 ml of water, put it in a bottle and taken twice a day over weeks and months. You’ll know when you no longer need to take it, you’ll just outgrow it.

But for a while let it hold your hand and show you that side of yourself that was you in the first spring of your life, your first passion. And then lovingly let your life of now, change to let that passion come through.

2) Parthenium Grass or Wild Feverfew

This grass is so demonized because apparently it’s toxic to some livestock and can cause rashes and dermatitis in some. And it’s supposed to be terribly invasive.

When you see that word ‘invasive‘ know that means passionate fertility.

You take any plant that’s “invasive” – that’s a plant with passion and that plant treats suppressed passion energy patterns. Lantana is one of those plants and everything I say about Parthenium is more or less true for Lantana as well, but I’ll stick with Parthenium Weed because I’ve long term solid experience with it.

It’s my one killer game changer ingredient in my treatment for spreading warts (inherited tendency!!) and melanoma of the skin (cancer). The original recipe had very powerful herbs that could remove warts and have been used to do so for a long time – like Thuja – but how do you stop the TENDENCY to keep MAKING new warts? What’s the point of breaking down wart cells while the body PASSIONATELY makes new wart cells?

Sometimes the body will PASSIONATELY make a wart on the exact same other side of the face when you take it out from one side of the face. Now if that isn’t a statement what is!

Enter Parthenium Weed or Wild Feverfew.

Parthenium Passion is what I call this plant. It’s beautiful. I’ve plucked it and made tincture out of it without any of terrible things happening that they warn you about.

However, a few days after it was soaking, it began to stink. Now I cannot describe to you, how bad it stank. It was like a hormonal teenage boy’s seven day old unwashed socks. No, it was worse. The house had to have all windows open and fans on for hours after I opened the bottle to have a sniff – because I can only tell when I smell a tincture, how its going, I can’t just look at it like others do, or have faith in time that, “in 6-8 weeks it’ll be done” – I have to SMELL it.

And this one was just horrific. I shut the bottle with horror and dared only many months later to open it again. It stank still but nowhere like before. I strained it out and began to use it. It was AMAZING to say the least. Here’s a picture of how a wart that was a combination or cluster of warts got broken down using Parthenium Weed. You cannot break those down and keep them down usually because you have to break the tendency to re-form them.

Caraf Avnayt - Herbalist

But back to the stink. That was when I realized that Parthenium treated hormonal suppression. It treats the disorders caused by suppression of passion – which is suppression of sexual hormones in the days when the body is releasing them in huge doses.

A healthy human experiences those times throughout their lives. But in recent generations, passion has been so suppressed that it has become a phenomenon associated with “turbulent teenage” – turbulent simply because if the body didn’t rebel at that young age, it never was going to have a chance to rebel again, it was going to have to be a responsible sensible adult and it knew this was its last chance to be unrestrained.

I could write books about the effect of suppression or thwarting sexual energy and so could most of you by now.

But here is a plant that will have none of that bullshit. There are whole countries and the United Nations defaming this plant, trying to eradicate it. But any walk you take pretty much anywhere in the world, at some point or the other, you’re going to see it, kicking ass as usual under some hedge or fence, doing its thing – spreading its genes 😉 .

It’s supportive medicine for when the body is aggressively resisting healing. No matter what you take, if a condition- ANY condition – whether an infection or a cancer or a particular bone or joint keeps having trouble, or your hair insists on falling out. If the body’s insisting on keeping the problem going, it just means it’s protesting suppression.

That means passion has been and is being suppressed and Parthenium grass can help change the self-suppression energy pattern to ‘spread my genes’ mode.

No, this plant will not make you Genghis Khan with children on every continent. It’ll just help you not be afraid to express your passion in whichever way your passion wants to come out.

This is not a remedy – it’s a journey, a pilgrimage, a return to innocence.

3) Turmeric

Good old turmeric is so popular for treating cancer and what not. I’ve had so much turmeric in my life that didn’t make one bit of a difference to me. And then I found wild turmeric root up in the mountains and woah…. my whole perception of this herb changed drastically overnight.

It’s actually a crash course in anger management. Anger in the body – I don’t know if you’ve experienced it – but it’s what you feel when your body WANTS to go out running but has to sit indoors. It’s what you feel when you need to sleep but you’re forced to wake up. It can go from anger to rage. Real rage just waiting for a chance to blow up.

There are conditions that result from the tension created in the body by such situations – tension that’s recreated through generations.

Dissipation – or the tendency to lose energy halfway through a task, as if in fear of the pleasure of completion, is one manifestation of suppressed anger.

The person’s sense of identity is suppressed to the one who ‘tries’, who ‘works at something’ but never the one who ‘finds’, who ‘wins’, who ‘achieves’. Actually reaching the conclusion or end of something signifies a change of identity – a change that would result in others no longer accepting the person, so they restrict themselves to being an eternal ‘worker’ just to fit in, while deep down they rage and rage.

This tendency is found in those people groups that were suddenly taken out of their ancestral occupations and forced into other things that didn’t quite satisfy them. So that’s a huge chunk of modern humanity there.

As they grow up they develop to be creative, expressive and all that. And then they get a desk job and one year into the job, and the atmosphere of being around those who are content with being nothing but ‘workers’ and depression hits them.

Their sense of identity can never be ‘just another number in the system’ and yet day after day that’s what they’re told they are.

The old rage in them builds up again and if they don’t find ways to enforce their self identity, to express their passion and enjoy themselves expressing their passion and feel proud of themselves for it, the rage will start wasting their muscles, causing visible shrinking and all the effects of aging before our time.

That’s the body saying, “I ain’t having any of this non-life anymore.”

It’s time to get a life. Almost literally.

Turmeric helps reverse the tendencies of early aging, dissipation of energy (IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN) and helps the tissues of body get back to holding energy without leaking.

There’s an energy pattern where a person that has been used as a source of emotional and vital energy, ie. for vampirical energy draining, to protect themselves from the repeat trauma, begins to self drain regularly as a survival mechanism just to not go through the trauma that comes when they fill up with energy.

Over time the body goes limp as it is never allowed to fill up with energy, and kept constantly drained itself.

Turmeric helps the body slowly get back to holding more and more vital energy so that goals can actually be reached.

There’s an element of loneliness associated with this sort of healing, because very often, it takes cutting off from the surrounding environment to assert oneself. But this is a good loneliness because it makes a person able to see life and others very clearly and it makes them able to decide on a life that suits them rather than go with the flow and have an unhappy life up ahead.

If you’ve ever had a time of life when you were physically drastically low in energy compared to before, and you never really recovered your vitality, turmeric taken over some months – whether as a little bit of the root put into your tea, or as tincture – will help rehabilitate your system.

Make sure to find ways to be the awesomeness of you instead of ‘just another worker’. Know that anything that clubs a real human with a heart in with others is a LIE. A damn lie.

4) Narcissus or Daffodil

I love narcissus. They named it after the god who fell in love with his own reflection – giving us the ‘narcissist’ word. That word’s been used as a bad thing for some reason.

I outright refuse to accept self love as anything but wonderful.

Whyever shouldn’t we fall in love with ourselves!!!!

It a conspiracy I tell you – against the very heart of humanity.

I first used Narcissus as a replacement for Colchium Autumnale as a remedy to treat the nervous debility caused by sleep trauma and sleep loss. I was amazed when in an emergency it gave me such relief and decided to look into it used regularly for recovery from long term chronic nervous trauma.

It’s poisonous and has to be taken in highly diluted doses like 1 drop to 100ml and that used a few drops twice a day.

It works like a mirror of the consciousness therefore helping us perceive ourselves and be able to deal with things rather than being in a fog of confusion and over time feeling like we’re just broken beyond repair.

There’s a chronic body inflammation such as precedes full blown arthritis that is associated with the habit of self recrimination, being overly critical of oneself because of never being able to actually go in any direction towards healing.

This is the sort of tendency – which often crops us generation after generation – which Narcissus helps relieve.

The relief is simple – it’s falling in love with yourself, acknowledging your own sensuality.

My Granddad once told me that all health problems can be solved with this exercise. You stand naked in front of the mirror and draw yourself as you see yourself. Everyday.

Naturally I had to try. So I did it – just once. And I drew myself as I saw myself – not as I would have liked to look.

And I fell in love with myself. I didn’t know why, the love just came.

Loving yourself, is not something someone can teach you. The only way to it, is to experience your own self.

Self-hatred has been promoted as a virtue and is in fact a deadly epidemic and STD.

If you’ve been touched by this disease consciously make every attempt to heal from it and shun all that which carries it. It is deadly, believe me. It makes the body burn, the organs burns, and causes systemic dysfunction where there’s a full blown rebellion.

Acknowledging and loving and enjoying your own passion, your own life energy, your own sexuality is a foundation of life you CANNOT do without.

If you don’t feel your sexiness, there’s very little chance anyone else will.

And don’t worry you won’t make an ass of yourself feeling sexy even though you don’t look like . It’ll only make you more attractive.

5) Ash tree – Fraxinus Excelsior

This good old tree called Fraxinus Excelsior in Europe and Fraxinus Americana in America has been used medicinally for all kinds of things.

What you need to remember about it is two words – Genetic Memory.

See a lot of inherited energy patterns which didn’t cause our parents problems, cause us problems, but because we’re not bringing up out of our memory the way to deal with those energy patterns the way our ancestors did.

This is a weakness of the energy field in a very core part of us, the part of us that developed as our body was first formed as a fetus, when we began to express our sexuality in the formation of our very early primal body.

In those days of early formation, when our sexual being forms, based on that primal sexuality, we choose which parts of the full genetic code available to us, we want to give energy to and which might not be that important to us.

And sometimes what we as fetuses living in cushy comfort inside our mothers estimate will be required in the life ahead, turns out to be not quite right.

So we develop all these abilities which would’ve been wonderful if we lived in heavenly magical places but not so good for Middle Earth where trolls roam.

The Ash wakes up in us the memory of the development of primal sexual being and makes us able to tap into our genetic code to find ways to deal with the energetic patterns our body is responding to our current environment with.

This changes our perception of ourselves, our lives, our problems, quite drastically, as we reinforce our sexual primal being.

See, the only sort of ‘being’ we have, is our ‘sexual’ being.

Remove our sexual being and we’re no one, nothing. That’s the truth whether we like it or not.

And the Ash helps us connect to that basic part of us and help the rest of us vibrate back to our basic frequency so we can be all we are.

Now you might think this is all a lot of talk. But in reality you’d be amazed at how many problems of the body can be resolved by supporting re-expression of our primal sexuality.

Problems with speech, motor control, chronic IBS, nervous degeneration, sensory deficiencies caused by atrophy of eye muscles (for example), not to mention just about any problem with arrested or suppressed development of the reproductive system.

All these are caused by not being able to express the primal sexuality with which we develop in our earliest days and months.

And how wonderful it is, that this beautiful tree which lives in its simple first self even when its a huge big tree, can help us be like that too.

You cannot cause yourself a problem taking Ash medicinally.

JUST DO IT.

6) Daphne -Spurge Laurel

Daphne came to me one morning, two mornings before a big tragedy hit me. It is also a poison, considered an invasive weed (in Oregon, US for example), another one of those which have whole institutions trying to get rid of it.

But two mornings after I had it, a sudden unexpected tragedy hit me. The sort of tragedy that would in my own estimation of a few days before have finished me.

I looked back at it and I realized that in the days just before the tragedy I’d had a drastic change of being. And I remembered Daphne and took it many times for a sort of ‘brain or consciousness reset’.

It removes the fog that collects over days and months or years that clouds our perception of things, that weighs us down so we can’t see things for what they are in the moment and make decisions for the moment. We’re bogged down by all kinds of crap in the head.

Daphne clears that stuff out, by just causing a sort of restart of our system. Like when we restart our phone or computer it works so much better.

But all that was just one side of Daphne. The side I want to tell you about in this article is about how Daphne helps one face the fear of Passion.

I don’t know how self realized you are, and I’m not very old in this lifetime, but what I’ve seen over and over and what my Granddad has attested to, is that Fear of Passion is a big problem and it results in the clouding of our perception to the point where even on a sub conscious level we don’t fully heal from anything, because if we did, we’d become sexy and we don’t WANT to face our own passion, forget anyone else’s.

The result of fear of passion is a terrible morose depression, where we keep going from one health condition to another… anything to excuse us from expressing life passion. Just anything to keep us feeling like we’re not good enough for the crazy all consuming passion that makes life LIFE.

It’s death. The fear of passion is death.

The Spurge Laurel is named after a river goddess called Daphne. The most handsome god called Apollo fell in love with her, but she decided to run from him. Someone she asked for help, turned her into a tree, rooting her into one spot. The leaves of THIS very tree – the laurel – are used to decorate the head of Apollo (the guy she was running from).

Now that’s a weird story. But a little look beneath the surface with the help of poet John Milton who called Daphne, “root bound” reveals that the story had a happy ending. That the fear and running was the problem and that rooting was the solution. The laurel leaves then became the mark and symbol of immortality, the triumph of passion. The triumph over the fear of sexuality.

‘Daphne was, root-bound, that fled Apollo’. Illustration by Arthur Rackham – from John Milton’s Comus, published 1921

To this day that’s what “laurels”means. Triumph, success, winning, kingship, overcoming the odds.

This tree that doesn’t provide edible fruit, or a lot of shade, is the ancient mark of triumph and successful completion, overcoming all odds, in every field and especially healing. Here it is with the caduceus, the symbol of healing and medicine.

From a book by
Gillé, Joseph-Gaspard,
Paris, 1808

7) Spikenard

Spikenard Root
Spikenard Root – Nardostacys Jatamansi

I’ve written so much about Spikenard over the years. How it makes the energy in the center of the body free to move it.

But there’s an aspect of Spikenard I haven’t written about much before. It’s about how it supports recovery from hidden sexual energy trauma.

Obvious sexual trauma isn’t that difficult to get over really…. once you face it and face it, it stops scaring you, and your sense of identity goes beyond the victim-hood of that experience and you move on.

But hidden sexual trauma is a whole other game. Hidden sexual trauma need not be caused by sexual assault the way we know it as sexual assault. The body and psyche and subconscious considers any attack on the SELF as sexual assault because we ARE our sexual being.

For example if someone curses us for being the child of our parents, our subconscious considers that sexual assault. And if that’s buried in us, it shows up in our sexual function as a debilitation or withdrawal from shame.

That’s just one example.

We’re particularly susceptible to this as children and many adults carry sexual trauma they cannot understand because as adults sexuality in our perception gets separated from the rest of us.

Whereas as children if someone put us down for something innately part of us, that we were born with, we took that as an assault on our sexuality. We felt it even when they didn’t SAY it. A lot of racism is sexual assault. A lot of bullying is sexual assault. Denying children something they want because of judging they’re not fit for it, or won’t be able to have or do it, that’s sexual assault.

That’s how the primal subconscious understands it.

Now in most cases this needs no treatment as it resolves on its own.

But there are those so broken inside because of hidden sexual assault done repeatedly, could even be in adulthood, keeping them broken, that their very persona as an adult begins to develop AROUND that, using crutches for support – crutches like the distraction of intellectual pursuit, or drug fueled sport, instead of developing personality and life on the solid flow of their own real sexual energy.

The sign of such a situation is the complete breakdown of life as we know it every few years. When we feel we’ve reached a dead end and there’s just not enough energy in us to keep going. We literally cannot live with ourselves anymore – even though mentally we know we’re wonderful people.

But we actually cannot live with the hidden trauma that’s blocking our sexual energy anymore. We’re just not OK with being our sexual self.

Granddad used to say, “Every crisis is an identity crisis.” And our sexual identity is the base of every other identity.

This is why those with gender confusion find life so difficult – because everything of life is based on sexual identity… everything.

Whole family groups have inherited sexual trauma from their very identity being denied; Made to feel ashamed for being their birth identity.

Anything that says to us, “You HAVE to change what you cannot change about yourself,” that is sexual assault. It forces us to cut off our natural energy flow and assume an alien energy pattern in which our sexual energy will never flow right, causing short circuits regularly.

The solution for us, is to re-develop sexual identity from scratch, validating our own selves. Not relying on others to recognize who we are, but recognizing and honoring our own selves.

That means never suppressing sexual energy when it flows of its own self. It means honoring our natural sexual impulse. It means changing the way we look at ourselves, not imposing a personality on ourselves for the sake of fitting in anywhere, or fitting an ideal, but allowing the natural expression of our primal self to come out in every day life.

For those who need such support, whose very energy of being, has been suppressed, manipulated, treated bad, the beautiful Spikenard which is one of nature’s greatest sources of Melatonin – the hormone that helps one sleep – is a beautiful support, aid and inspiration.

Spikenard as Herbal Medicine

This beautiful flower blooms high up in the mountains, blooming sweetly and freely, in lonely hidden places without caring one whit for what anyone thinks of it. Its root, Nard is a universally known symbol of love, made famous by the ‘Song of Solomon’ in the Bible.

Any weakness of the body has been treated with Spikenard since time immemorial and I believe they call it an ‘adaptogen’ these days.

You can get the essential oil and rub it on your wrists at bed-time. Some find it too strong. But if you need it, you’ll like it. You can get some root and put a strand or two into your tea every evening. It can be sleep inducing.

But most of the time, it’s passion inducing.

I’ve been recently advised by an internet article on how to get more business from my website, to end every article with a ‘Call to Action’.

So here’s this article’s Call to Action.

5 Herbs to Release Gut Tension & Help Your Body Process Medicines

A while ago a man told me of how he had a problem with his eyes for four decades resulting in progressive loss of vision, headaches – sometimes so bad he almost went blind with the pain. The doctors had suspected a tumor in the brain but found nothing.

This person took my advice on herbs to rehabilitate the digestive system as his body swung between chronic constipation and bouts of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and diarrhea.

It turned out that the first effect of the herbs was a massive reduction in the tension around his eyes and the headaches. He went from about four episodes of headaches and blinding a day to two in a month and then to one every week in four months.

This is one example of the ways gut tension can affect the rest of the body.

Our entire system relies on the area around our core working properly. This core area is as densely populated with nerves and nerve endings as the brain and what happens here, second by second affects the brain and the rest of the system.

There are three major causes of gut tension and hypersensitivity – which are really the same thing – the gut being irritated and reacting in an extreme way.

1) Mild Chronic Poisoning
2) Over-eating
3) Energetic assault or Shock

1) Mild Chronic Poisoning
A lot of the time we think that if we ate something one day and the body did not react to it violently, that means it’s ok for us. It isn’t always OK. There are foods that slowly increase the levels of a poison in the gut, which deposit things in the lining of the digestive system. At one point the body starts reacting violently because the situation has reached a point where if cleaning up doesn’t happen soon enough, one or other of the organs could be seriously affected.

Digestive extremes therefore should be first dealt with by taking out of your diet everything but the simplest home cooked food. You then do gentle detoxification with foods like horseradish, fenugreek seed tea, nettle tea – just herbs and vegetables that support a clean up – nothing extreme.

2) Over-eating

Over-eating caused by anxiety and other emotional causes is something that makes people feel helpless. How do you stop when you’re in the habit for so long?

For a lot of people, one simple thing works. Nutrition. You see, nearly everyone can trace the onset of their over-eating to a time around which they either didn’t have enough food or didn’t have food that was satisfying – like food after which you feel, “Yes, now I’m full and satisfied and can get on to other things now.”

Not being satisfied nutritionally is one of the causes of anxiety and panic attacks as it makes the person prone to emotional extremes.

This results in a whole lot of other problems in the body all the way to heavy menstrual bleeding, hair loss, chronic fatigue, mental slowing and so on.

Adding a source of natural fat to the diet very often begins the process of healing.

It’s not an overnight thing, but if you sit down and think of what you really feel like having and decide to put aside what’s in your head about what you should have, and choose what your gut wants to have instead, you’ll be surprised at how you can go from unsatisfied to satisfied and how that can change your body and your life for the better.

3) Energetic assault or Shock

In our times, there is nearly always some or the other attempt to drain a human’s energy always going on.

Television and media, even books, are consciously aimed at emotional energy manipulation, trying to cause shock to get attention. This is what they now even train students of the media and communication to do.

There’s a lot of competition out there to get your attention, your emotional energy.

Now, when a body in the course of a natural life experiences shock of some kind, the system recognizes it and deals with it.

However, if the shock is not dealt with, perhaps because the person did not realize what was happening at the time, or the person was too busy mentally with some other task, then the nerves of the body and especially around the gut, clench up and don’t relax, waiting for us to resolve the issue.

This sort of shock is constantly delivered by news and other media as well as stress and trauma hormones in commonly available foods and even medicines.

I have found treating the body for recovery from shock lessens the need for treatment of other sorts as it allows the body to accept other treatment and respond well to other medicine and lifestyle healing.

Here are my 5 favorite herbs that help release gut tension and support recovery from gut shock

Increase Nerve Force with Herbs, Food & Lifestyle Changes

One of the first signs of the process commonly called ‘premature aging’, is simply a decrease in nerve force.

Nerve force, very simply is the energy with which electrical signals go from one nerve cell to another.

When we find ourselves reacting to something slowly and with tiredness it means our nerve force is less.

If we are not able to react to sensory stimulation and enjoy things, our nerve force is less.

It is literally the speed at which the communication between the parts of the body is happening.

When our nerve force is low, the nervous signals feel like they’re going at the speed of postal mail versus email.

While there are many causes of it, from lack of enough sleep to fatigue caused by repetitive stress, to emotional shock caused by loss or grief, the human body is capable of adapting to a situation and maintaining nerve force.

A lot of the time food, drink, even herbs and other holistic treatments are used to artificially increase nerve force through adrenaline shocking the body, stressing the kidneys and surging the nervous system. The body reacts with chronic fatigue as it resists what it considers artificial stimulation as not something in the body’s memory of what’s natural.

For example, one such substance is MSG or mono-sodium glutamate, which is used in nearly all processed foods for its ability to increase nerve force giving a sort of quick but short-lived energy surge making the person eating become suddenly able to taste better. It increases nerve force so the report from the sense organs goes quickly to the brain and the brain says, “Yes, it’s yummy.” If you’ve ever craved eating something processed or that’s not cooked at home, chances are you’re craving MSG. But its list of harmful effects are legendary.

There are other additives to increase nerve force that are used in the processed food industry.

They all backfire sooner or later as the body learns to resist even them. Chronic allergies, histamine intolerance and auto-immune disorders are just some of the ways the body resists the intrusion.

The way to increase nerve force without pissing off the body and triggering off resistance, is to be nice and work with the body and the psyche, in ways considered friendly rather than forcing.

 

Natural Ways to Increase Nerve Force

1) Hormonal and Sensory Recognition

When we come in contact with, or even think of something our system recognizes naturally, instinctively, hormonally, our system responds with an increase of nerve force. This is what makes a child, even as an adult respond to the presence of their biological ancestors, parents and relatives with increased nerve force, making them heal faster, feel better. Even pictures of them, talking about them can help.

In the old days, a common prescription for someone with lessened nerve force was a trip to the sea or the mountains or some place where the person could come in touch with raw nature again. This is what makes nature in general healing; because our system recognizes what’s in nature and reacts with nerve force – quite literally push to live.

It used to be a practice in the days when people died of actual old age at home with their families, for their favorite foods from their childhood to be prepared for them when they got weak towards the end, because that would increase nerve force almost immediately.

If you are low on nerve force, no matter what the cause, bring into your life things comfortably familiar, something you loved and enjoyed in your childhood, something that reminds you of times when you were well. Change your diet to food traditional to your family.

Recently a woman who hemorrhaged every month had a sudden breakthrough when she added butter back into her diet. She’d given butter up for olive oil some years before. After she brought butter back into her diet because she realized she didn’t feel satisfaction from food until it had butter in it, as was traditional to he famil. That month she had her first normal period in twenty years.

We cannot over-think our food or lifestyle. Overall making our choices in life following our emotional and physical instincts (which are the same thing usually) leaves us better-off. There’s no point reaching a good point in life without the nerve force to actually enjoy the experience and build on it.

 

2) Herbs, food and drinks that increase nerve force, unwind, relax and remove blocks in the body.

In the short term, there are things we can eat and drink to help increase nerve force without pushing or forcing the body. I keep my herbal treatments light because I’ve found that there’s absolutely no point causing a fantastic ‘good’ reaction only for the body to slump back in the days after. Even in the short term, never take too much of anything. You do not want to overwhelm the body unless you’re in a severe emergency.

Herbs that comfort are those that increase nerve force in the short term.

They also work to rehabilitate the system, but a sure way to rehabilitation is to take herbs along with adding foods into your diet that remove blocks and areas of coagulated stuff in the body.

I’ll mention five of my favorite foods to do this: Parsley, Rolled Oats, Bananas, Onions and Natural Yeast Bread

Parsley because it’s just emergency nerve energy food. It could keep a dead man alive a little longer.

Oats and Bananas because they’re immediately nourishing nerve nourishing food.

Onions because onions help recover from even severe nerve energy loss.

This bunch of onions inspired this article. I’m a fan.

Have you ever felt such a lack of nerve force that you cannot even cry? Too tired to sleep? Onions will help you cry – not just by stinging your eyes but by helping unclog the body, helping blood move around easier.

You have to try it. Have some onion soup if not anything else. Or just add onions to everything you cook for a week or two and then reduce it.

Natural Yeast is a YUGE energizer of nerve force in the body.

I simply leave a little bit of flour and water covered with a cheese cloth for a day or two on the kitchen counter and it catches yeast right out of the air. You then knead that in with your dough, let it sit for a few hours and make bread out of it. It sounds like a lot of work, but after you’ve done it a few days it becomes very easy and is so worth the effort.

3) Going inwards

A lot of the time, the lack of nerve force is because the spirit of the person is not willing to keep sending energy outwards any more. The logic and why and wherefore of it do not matter. If there’s a lack of nerve force, it’s time to stop attention and energy from flowing out and either simply rest, or turn inwards.

The most successful people are those who are in touch with their spirit right through the noise of life, and know how to interact with the world in keeping with how their spirit wants their energy to be used.

If daily life energy use is NOT something our spirit supports, then we’re losing right there, whether it looks like it or not in the moment. We cannot sustain an effort in our lives that does not have our spirit supporting it.

When our spirit supports us, our body supports us and what we do then leads to success for us one way or another.

So if nerve force is weak, it’s time to go inward, energetically rest, and find out what we really want to do.

Positive and Negative Polarity – Holistic Recovery with Herbs from Radiotherapy and Radiation Damage

A time comes to every person who takes herbs and natural healing when they have to stop depending on herbs and cross over to being independently healthy again. Very few ever cross that line, and their body ends up developing resistance to the very herbs that are their medicine of choice.

Herbs to stimulate healing, detoxification and so on, are of the positive polarity, or solar, heating, pushing, moving. They include all those processes that are outgoing and heat generating and expanding and energy releasing. Cell growth, cell reproduction, regeneration of damaged tissue, they’re all positive or solar processes.

There are herbs that support the negative polarity or the lunar processes of the body, cooling, contracting and energy retaining.

These have to be taken at just the right time, to help bring the body into balance, into neutral, and then lessened to a point where you don’t need anything but your food and your water to keep healthy.

Just as the heart sends out blood to the entire body, so the heart receives blood from the entire body. It’s something that is happening in every part of us all the time.

Radiation is everywhere in our modern lifestyles, even if you don’t actually go through a radiotherapy session. It is experienced in mild ways across Australia, where I was told by a man who installed cable antennas, you won’t be covered by insurance for skin cancer if you don’t wear a hat when working outdoors. Radiation is delivered by microwaves, is in food that is irradiated to prevent it from spoiling, is generated by mobile phones, and any other number of radiation delivery devices.

Now radiation, simply over-stimulates the cells into the positive polarity causing the cell to release its stored energy, with which it was supposed to live long and reproduce into other cells before it died. When it suddenly releases all its stored energy, it burns out and dies, or goes weak.

This kills cells by making them overwork and get over-heated and, just like food gets heated up and if longer, burned, in the microwave.

This is one reason, radiotherapy is part of current medical treatment of cancer. Technically speaking, it should kill off just the bad boy cells and let the good boy cells be. In practical experience however, that is almost never what happens. Usually the good boys and girls end up weak and susceptible now to even more problems, and those far more widespread than before.

One reason herbal medicine for recovery from radiotherapy works so well is because herbs with high levels of natural energy (note: not all herbs are made alike) quickly supply the body with vital energy so the good boys and girls can keep going until they start functioning again and get back to collecting up energy for their life functions.

But this is where the bridge is. Ask anyone into natural living and they’ll tell you that a time comes when the herbs don’t ‘work’ like they did before.

The body balances out everything, even herbs. After a certain crisis has been crossed, the body will start treating the same herb it treated like gold during the crisis, now like any other food, passing out most of it. The body thinks, “I’m getting so much of it regularly, no point storing it around, let’s store the rarer stuff, this one’s always available.”

So that’s what’s happening on this side of the bridge. You can cross over the bridge now, to the other side, where the cells are all making their own energy like before, where the body is well like before, through one simple thing – energy balancing your cells, so they’re no longer in the state the radiation put them in – which was over-stimulated.

The herbs which help the body recover from over-stimulated, support the negative polarity in the body, or the ‘lunar’ processes.

These herbs don’t work aggressively, their whole benefit is that they are NOT aggressive. Many of these herbs have little white or yellow flowers, and grow as weeds. Most of them make you thirsty – think lunar, think moon, think water – because they help detoxify the body through the water networks of the body.

A few of the Negative Polarity or Lunar herbs that come to mind right now are:

Gelsemium or Yellow Jasmine will bring down a fever, calm an over-heated brain in summer, stop a new mother’s hemorrhage.


The lacy Elderflower (Sambucus) will strengthen the nerve endings of the lungs and other organs as well slowly but surely after a violent epileptic, or asthmatic attack, healing damage caused by spasms and cellular over heating.

Rauwolfia Serpentina or Snakeroot with it’s little white flowers calms an over-heated brain in deep ways, supporting better sleep quality and recovery from the damage caused by mental and emotional stress to the brain and nervous system.


Lily of the Valley or Convallaria – another intoxicating addictive beautiful white flower – you definitely ought not to have too much of it, but in tiny medicinal proportions it releases tension from the nerves around the heart, and the uterus. For recovery from a traumatic shock, it does wonders.


Then there’s the crazy amazing Datura or Moonflower not so tiny, but definitely a lunar flower. This one works by heating the system so much, the system fights back cooling itself and demanding water, lots of it. The nerves cramp tight, really tight and then release. Again, only tiny doses, and it’s better applied externally unless you want a psychedelic trip into the moony roots of you.

Bamboo amazingly supports the negative polarity processes of the body and can make a sudden change for the better when combined with any other natural healing because it supports the body in moving energy around.

Whenever you see a little white flower, know that it supports the negative polarity and the lunar parts of the body.

Our lives are so full of over-stimulation and the residual effects of it, that we couldn’t really have too much of the lunar flowers for a long time to come.

Do remember however that the point of all this is to become energy balanced and when all is said and done, we have to keep energy moving. Energy = Feelings. So keeping our feelings moving through us, through the body is essential, that final last step to becoming self sufficient again.

Herbs to Strengthen the Heart, Build Emotional Resilience

When you strengthen the heart, you strengthen every part of you and find relief from problems that were not responding before.

To strengthen a weak or tired heart, on every level, herbs can help. They’re living beings like us. They open our sub-conscious tunnels and caves and cupboards, awaken deep things in us and help us see and hear what we need to to find our way.

When the physical heart is weak or unstable, it is a clarion call from our consciousness to repair ourselves from deep deep within.

Borage for disappointment with no silver linings
Cactus for nervous instability, recovery from shock
Damiana for uterine, sexual and reproductive system blocks
Violet for lymphatic sluggishness
Milk Thistle for congestion in the body such as after a large meal
Dandelion for tightness around the diaphragm, solar plexus
Mistletoe for when you’re too cold or too hot
Rose Petals and Rosehips to release blocked up energy

Borage for disappointment with no silver linings

Imagine a flower wilting in harsh dry weather. Do you feel like that emotionally and physically? Do you feel overwhelmed by all you have to do and like you would like to give up the fight? Borage is the plant that will pull the focus of your consciousness down to simpler things, to the center of your body where the complications that confuse our heads don’t matter that much, and where what we need to do in the moment is clear. This clarity is relaxing and strengthening for the heart.

Physically the heart rate normalizes and the production of stress hormones in the blood begins to reduce.

When you have Borage, after about thirty minutes, flush your system with water, to get the stress hormones out.

 

Cactus for nervous instability, recovery from shock

Do you feel like you’re standing on the roof of a shaking building? Or like you’re being pulled and jerked about in different directions? Like one part of you is in one place and another in quite the opposite direction? Like your heart is being torn wanting opposite things at the same time and with equal desperation?

Desperation is the keyword here. We feel emotional desperation when we are torn in different directions and cannot seem to find harmony.

A physical heart in the throes of such feeling has an unstable heart rate, flutterings, fibrillation and does not pass the blood through the chambers smoothly. Overall, the heart is weaker as a result and the entire body suffers the effects of this instability.

Cactus helps us find emotional and physical energetic balance. As a result, the heart is able to gather its energy up rather than have it splayed and splashed in different directions. This heals the physical heart,calms the nervous system and therefore the entire body.

It relieves the troubled emotions by consolidating them so we can face what it is that is really troubling us instead of being distracted by a million little things that would resolve on their own if we would just look at what really is the matter.

Damiana for uterine, sexual and reproductive system blocks

Do you feel like you cannot feel the sweetness of life anymore? Like you cannot even feel your own self anymore?

When a person rejects their own sexual being sub-consciously, the reproductive organs go static, something like playing statue in front while struggling to keep functioning at the back because it’s necessary to keep living.

Now, our sexual being is our primal being. And believe it or not, our heart is the center of our sexual energy.

When the organs of the reproductive system go energy static or tense, the heart feels it immediately and reacts by going into a sort of freeze, waiting for the situation to resolve. Blood circulation slows, hormonal release reduces to a trickle, slowly, life itself comes to a freeze.

An obvious symptom of this condition is not feeling turned on sexually or otherwise as much as usual, as much as you need to feel fully alive.

If you feel frozen, numb, static, stuck, Damiana will help relax the organs of the reproductive system which hold and express our primal being, and this in return releases the heart’s static, allowing it to beat fully and get blood moving around the system.

Several acute cases of circulation inefficiency have been relieved by Damiana where the usual circulation support herbs failed to make much of a difference.

On a physical level, if the heart does not beat FULLY, seems like it stops or is constricted and the chest in general feels constricted, Damiana is the herb.

Violet for lymphatic sluggishness

Do you feel like there are blank spaces in you that noting gets through? Like you keep hitting a wall and all the momentum you had is suddenly gone and you don’t know why?

When we have ‘numb’ zones in our consciousness, it manifests in areas of our body’s lymphatic system becoming sluggish. Our lymphatic system is simply the places between our bodies, the drainage areas. Sluggishness here makes the whole body feel weighed down, slow, heavy, inflexible, numb.

On an emotional level we feel like we have too much baggage and not enough strength to really let go or what we know deep down, we have to let go of, to be free and light enough to move on.

Heaviness, is the key word here. Too heavy? Get Violet to help.

The physical heart feels strengthened by the Violet’s ability to make the consciousness rest. This sort of rest means, the relaxation of all that which is holding in what should be let go of. Tiny little nerve endings relax. The whole body on a deep deep level feels able to let go.

Everything feels a lot easier. Movement itself becomes easier.

When you take Violet, you will feel like moving more than usual. It doesn’t have to be about exercise. You have things to do, and you will feel like doing them. You might even feel frenetic. Just do whatever you feel like doing from your heart.

Fenugreek seed tea, Quis Qualis Indica and other herbs for lymphatic cleansing will help clear out what’s now ready to be cleared out.

Milk Thistle for congestion in the body such as after a large meal

Do you feel morose and morbid? And pessimistic and dark? And cynical and pissed off about everything? Milk Thistle will comfort you.

When a person’s most simplest desires, like the simple primal desire of a baby for his or her mother’s milk, has been denied and this pattern plays out again and again in life, the person often becomes the perpetrator of this disappointment, denying themselves their primal and little desires, finding logic and rationality to deny themselves pleasure.

This makes the body confused in its management of fat, oils and other substances which nourish us. The body begins to throw out what we need, keep what we don’t need and then when the mess has gone beyond the scope of a one day clean up job, the garbage just tends to start piling up all over wherever.

Milk Thistle’s message on an emotional and on a physical level is “I can be happy and satisfied again, like I was at my mother’s breast.”

Physically, instead of rejecting nutrition or not knowing what to do with it, the body begins to work with it. That which was stored up out of confusion is now slowly thrown out.

No, it is not a quick process, but it works.

The heart that physically was strained, pushing and pushing and then lapsing into fatigue, the condition called ‘cardio myopathy’ is relieved by the change brought about by Milk Thistle – or Silybum Mariana or Carduus Mariana.

Emotionally we stop being a struggler, straining for love, and begin instead to allow ourselves to experience the simple pleasures of life. This changes everything.

Dandelion for tightness around the diaphragm, solar plexus

Do you feel like the world’s problems are your problems? Do you feel the weight of responsibility beyond your capacity to carry? Do you feel alone in carrying your burden?

Dandelion is the herb to help.

When you feel burdened, it’s most often because you feel like you have lost some form of support or strength you counted on, without which you feel lost and bereft.

Loss is the keyword here. A deep sense of loss, perhaps from long ago, maybe even from early childhood, makes the consciousness and the body feel like a loser. The perception that we don’t have the support we need to make it through life pervades, making the body under function.

Little puppies separated from their mothers, the young student in a new city, the newly weds who find themselves no longer as much part of their old family or community, anyone who feels isolated from support, could use Dandelion’s help.

Dandelion looks up to the sky, and believes in God. “Someone made me. The force which made me, will sustain me.”

It’s that simple.

The physical heart which was struggling to function, it’s beat becoming more and more feeble, then making a bid for normalcy before sinking again, now begins to beat calmly and without the struggle.

Mistletoe for when you’re too cold or too hot

Do you feel uncomfortable, like the sheets are too warm close to you, but too cold on the other side? Like the grass is greener on the other side, but you know if you go over there, you’ll only want to come back here?

This weird feeling of wanting something, a LOT, but not enough to making you actually go towards it, is helped by Mistletoe.

A consciousness that is in a state of self denial because of having a split opinion or because of desiring what seems like two opposite things, and therefore being unable to move in either direction, is usually in that situation because of unresolved emotional pain.

Unresolved pain messes with our perception on many levels making us unable to look at what we really want in life. To compensate for this lack of emotional perception, we develop a personality and a life based on logic, on the advice of others, on books that tell us what to do, when to do it, how to do it.

A most simple form of healing is to let go of all the learning in the head, and do what we feel like doing.

Releasing rigid mental control and assessment of our life energy, of our lives, allows the body and the consciousness to find its own balance and resolve old emotional pain.

Mistletoe lives like that… simply. “I’m here, you’re here, hello.

The physical heart, which is also the center of the hormonal system, stops going into frenzies and panic followed by the general debility and slump that comes after being so worked up. Adrenal exhaustion lessens and the body slowly becomes stable and functional again.

Rose Petals and Rosehips to release blocked up energy

Suppressed anger, repressed rage, but unable to come out to the surface. “How can I ever be angry enough?” is the feeling here, “I might as well seethe or simmer or just forget about it for now. What can I do about it anyway?”

We are taught in so many ways through life, that the ‘use’ of an emotion is to make some action happen. If you fall in love, you must kiss, you must have sex. If you like drawing, you must become an artist. If you like dancing, you must go to dance lessons. If you like cooking, you should open a restaurant.

It’s good to use our talents, but this attitude when taken too far, makes a person begin to feel impotent and incapacitated over time. Like the limbs are tied up.

Good things become a pain.. who wants to hear the whole ‘you draw so well, you should develop this talent’ rhetoric all over again even if it’s only in your own head?

The Rose is about feeling what we’re feeling without stopping it because we cannot see where it’s going. It’s about freedom to feel, without judgment. This is the basis of courage and bravery.

The warrior is not the one who yells on the battlefield and charges at the energy. He is the one who allows his feelings, his love, his anger, his desire, to shape his life and his destiny. Before the battle, he knows he has won, because his feelings have brought him to this moment, because he walked the path his every day feelings led him on, and just how he wakes and sleeps moved by those feelings, so he will know how to fight the battle.

The heart is FED by feelings. A physical heart that is weak and insufficient, tired and hopeless, jaded, and which turns away from sunshine and hope, benefits from the fearless Rose – whether the petals or the fruit.

———————————

There is another aspect to strengthening the heart, resolving identity crises. Hawthorn, Oleander, Nettle are some of the herbs which help, but there is so much to say there, so we will talk about how they work another time.

Holistic Rejuvenation of Heart, Blood and Bone Marrow Function

One of the body’s most common responses to hidden or suppressed trauma is a steady decline in the quality of blood cells being made.

This is why people ‘age’ suddenly when they have a tragedy or loss that ‘takes the life’ out of them.

This situation can also be caused by actual loss of physical blood, starvation and deprivation over a long period of time (especially in the case of women) and various emotional situations.

The most common cause however is the person doesn’t WANT to live anymore if that’s the way life is. A fall in blood quality and quantity is very simply the life energy withdrawing and the body and psyche being in a state of waiting for something to make the person want to live again.

Nearly every person I’ve ever made medicine for who has had the combination of anemia, fatigue, lessened hair quality or hair loss, lessened bone strength, has been able to remember an event or string of events through which they lost their zest for life.

Not in every case, but often enough, for me to mention it here, this combination of symptoms comes with the person clinging to an illusion or delusion about something. Denial of a painful truth. It takes so much energy to hold up the burden of this big illusion, the poor person is just drained of energy and finds no energy left to do anything else.

Now every soul knows what they have to do for life to be acceptable again, to be free of energy heaviness.

But this often hides behind the noise of our conscious mind with our thoughts and worries loud all day and even all night long.

To reach the point where we can hear what our heart wants us to hear, there are many ways. Some walk, some run, some sleep. The thing to remember is, if you’re not getting there through your normal routine, you have to do something you’re not doing yet.

 

Awareness is Resolution – Feeling your Heartbeat

I have seen amazing healing happen through the power of awareness. Remember that the whole point of illness is to call our attention and awareness to a particular area of the body.

However painful, get brave and become aware of the weak zones. Energy flows where awareness goes.

In the case of weak blood making, the areas we have to give attention to are the bone marrow and the heart.

On a vibration and frequency level, they are the same, they get each other. They work together with blood connecting them, like two ends of an electric circuit. If the bone marrow feels something, the heart feels it and reacts and vice versa.

So here is a simple exercise to bring awareness to both of them. It is simple and you can do it anywhere, any time, once you’ve gotten used to it.

1) Breathe, relax and feel your heart beat. Put your hand on your heart and feel your heart beat if it’s the first time you’re doing this. When you have picked up your heart beat, then let your hand fall and continue to feel your heart beat from inside.

2) Feel the vibration of the heart beat in your liver, just beneath your chest on your right side, and on the left side, your spleen. Both of these play a big role in maintaining blood in the body.

3) Become aware of the report or echo of the heart beat coming from the bones, the center of the bones to be precise.
You can choose one particular bone or area, like the hands or the feet, or the skull, or you can feel a ‘surround report’, like when a gun goes off in the center of the valley and standing right there you get an echo from all sides.

Know that it is not mental awareness that’s the aim here but holistic awareness which is also physical and very importantly emotional.

The cells of our heart, of our bones, they have memory, they have feelings, they have hopes and wishes. When you become aware of them, you might become aware of deep disappointment, loneliness, pain, shock, grief that you didn’t know you had. These might be irrational, they might be from some situation you thought you left behind a long time ago.

Just give your feelings respect. And make time every day perhaps even many times a day to become aware of your heart and the report of your heart beat from the bone marrow.

Herbs to support Blood Function

There are three colors in the blood.

Hibiscus, Rosehips, Rhododendron, Cactus, Nettle, Strawberries; these all help the red part of the blood.
Herbal Treatments for Heart, Blood & Circulation

Milk thistle, Dandelion, Wheatgrass; these help the yellow part of the blood, the liver that is. Bitter herbs usually support the liver.
Herbal Treatments for Liver Support

Mistletoe, Violet, Echinacea, Fenugreek; these help the white part of the blood, spleen and lymphatic function that is. The spleen is stimulated by sweet things. Refined white sugar is bad for you, but there are so many other ways to have sweet in your life.

A little sweet, a little bitter.

You will find your self drawn to some or all of these, or other herbs. Have those as teas or as tinctures, or get me or someone who knows what they’re doing to make you a blend of extracts.

When you take herbal medicine for a condition, twice or thrice a day, not only are you providing your body the tiny amounts of particular nutrition it needs to heal from a situation, you’re also speaking to your own self in an ancient primal language that both your body and the more subtle parts of you, like your sub-conscious understands. It is all round, a powerful method of healing.

Intelligent Detox – Herbs that raise body intelligence

If your detoxification programs haven’t been working well enough, and if you have nutritional deficiencies even though you eat healthy enough, you need to remind your body to get back to sifting things properly.

The intelligence of herbs is amazing. They are living beings not dead chemicals. When we have whole herbs who have not been processed in a way that destroys their subtle energies, the herbs get into our bodies and teach the parts of us that are tired or have forgotten how to do things, how to do them efficiently again.

A very important aspect of detoxification and keeping clean on a regular basis, is for our bodies to know what to keep and what to throw out.

The usual herbs for detoxification, laxatives, and urinary stimulators, need the body to keep what’s needed instead of throwing the baby out with the bath water. To do so, would be to cause a whole new set of problems where the body is chronically energy deficient and lacking in important minerals.

Tumors, various skin problems, these are among so many others the result of the body not knowing what to keep and what to let go of.

Very often a person who needs help in this area is also feeling overwhelmed by life, and at a loss to sift through what is valuable and what to let go of or forget about. The same herbs work on all levels to help the body and soul together.

Here are some of my favorite herbs with the intelligence that they lend us to help sift efficiently:

Papaya – What belongs, What doesn’t

Carica Papaya is in Paw Paw Ointment used to carry herbal treatments.

 

Just a simple tasty fruit. The papaya has the intelligence to know which cells belong in the area and which don’t. When the papaya knows this, the cells of the body pick up on that and realize which cells should go and which should stay. Now that’s intelligent detoxification.

 

Geranium Robertiana and Ginkgo – Bullshit Detectors

Above, Herb Robert and beneath is Ginkgo Biloba

These two grow even in radiation destroyed zones because they’re like the wise man who built his house upon a rock. They are conscious of what’s really important and what’s happening in the neighborhood is not a priority. They are grounded in their own reality.

When the energy fields of living beings are broken down for any reason, natural cells fall back into the basic ability to re-generate their own energy field based on basic reality that radiation and the like cannot touch.

These two are my favorite herbs for basic connectedness to reality and their ability to know what’s really needed and what is fluff. Bullshit detectors is what they are.

 

Lycopodium or Club Moss and Violet – Crisis managers, Detanglers

Above, Lycopodium, Beneath, Violets

These two know just how to manage things when the toxins and what’s required and valuable are so entangled and mixed up, the body has been keeping them both not knowing how exactly to solve the problem.

Eventually, as the presence of toxins increase, they trigger off crises as the body tries to throw them out desperately.

In crises like autoimmune disorders and allergies, these can help the body make sense of the confusion and sift out what to keep and what to send packing.

Heather – Calluna Vulgaris – Foreseeing future needs through tapping into DNA memory

An important part of sifting is being able to foresee the need for something. To do this our cells need to be in touch with the memory in our dna that tells us based on the past what we can expect in the future. Heather has that intelligence to help us tap into our dna memory and make decisions about what to keep and what to send out.

Mimosa Pudica – Just say No

‘Touch me Not’ or ‘The Sensitive Plant’; This plant has been used to help sensitive nervous systems as it itself is so sensitive. Its intelligence however goes deeper. It is sensitive to the environment as well and senses changes in pressure all around it and adjusts its own internal pressure accordingly to open or close its leaves. It helps our body be sensitive to the situation we are in and reject that which pressures or pushes us beyond what we can deal with.

It helps us simply say No to toxins – anything which is causing more trouble than helping us.

How to Heal your Voice

Throughout history humans have used the nuances of voice to understand one another. We understand instinctively what we really mean by the little jumps and stops and changes in tone and pitch and volume of our voices.

My interest in the topic started back in school days when the school choir was competing in a big competition and we were all very careful to keep our voices in order through the months of practice for the big day. I noticed all the things affecting our voices, and very little was about catching a cold.

At one point in my life trauma made me unable to sing for years.

I found out that heart trouble and voice trouble go together.

To heal our voice, means to give our soul wings again.

To give our soul wings again, we need to get to the point where we feel we are beautiful again.

That important thing being said, while we’re waiting for that to happen, here are:

Three things to heal the Voice holistically

1) Normalize base body temperature

In my school days when I was part of the choir, I would stand with the other girls outside the door of the school hall where we would practice every morning at 8, waiting for the doors to be opened. In the chilly early morning we would try to warm up a bit and many would be pretty much croaking.

I learned then that body warmth affects the voice a LOT.

Those who have voice problems invariably have a problem maintaining a stable correct body temperature. It falls below normal because of trauma, or hormonal imbalance.

A herb that is excellent to help establish a stable body temperature in Mistletoe.

Yes, the same one under which some kissing ought to happen this month. It has to be taken long term though, as changing base body temperature is something that takes time.

Oh, you reading are under the Mistletoe right now, so mmmmmmuah. There you have been kissed. Merry Christmas to you too.

For men, to raise body temperature Nettle tea is great. It has to be had in small doses though as it can have a laxative effect.

For women (and men whose hands have gotten REALLY cold), the Pitcher Plant, or Drosera is an immediate pick-me-up.

Pitcher Plant - Drosera

Look at the beauty of this carnivore plant. It traps insects going in and contracts and chews up the insects with its sheer muscle strength. A whole lot of heat is generated through this process.. muscle heat. It’s very impressive.

 

2) Tone up the muscles

The voice is all about the muscles. From the heart which is a muscle, to the lungs which are muscle to the vocal cords themselves, to the tongue which again, is a muscle, it’s all about tone and strength and flexibility.

Exercises that build muscle strength and flexibility, the ability to contract and expand rhythmically, will not only drastically help your voice heal, but will do so many other wonderful things for the body.

Breathing exercises, just simple deep breathing, hold the breath as long as possible and then slowly releasing it, makes a big difference. Just practice deep breathing for about five minutes whenever you can through the day.

Exercise that traumatizes the lungs also traumatizes the voice, so it’s important to keep things peaceful and calm.

Then there is nutrition for the muscles.

It is easy to incorporate these into your schedule. They must be used for at least a few months, in small doses once a day at least.

Saw Palmetto
Saw Palmetto

This is one powerful herb for the muscles everywhere and therefore for the voice as well. It helps the muscle tissue let go of lumps of material they can’t use but are still holding on to because they don’t get enough nutrition when they need it. This makes muscle tissue smooth and functional insteaf of lmped up and rusty. It’s what you take, especially men, if you have muscles tired because of either lack of exercise or over exercise and lack of enough rest in the long term. Muscle refreshing and toning, I suppose is what sums up Saw Palmetto.

Black Cohosh or Cimicifuga Racemosa

Black Cohosh helps muscle tissue recover from trauma because of blood pressure and hormonal excesses and imbalance. If you have had trauma to the uterus, heart or lungs either through trauma (like hemorrhage, cardiac arrests, asthma attacks) or anything that made either of these organs go into an abnormal panic, Black Cohosh will help recover. If you have it as tea it will soothe the inner lining of the throat which is a nice thing if you’re after healing your voice.

Pearl Millet

Pearl Millet

This one has got the nutrition required to support the muscles in letting dead cells go and making new healthier ones. A spoonful of powdered millet a day makes changes that can felt in as little as a week. It increases muscle strength gradually but surely.

3) Acknowledge what your voice is saying.

Voice is an expression of the soul. It has to be respected and listened to. Sometimes it’s easy to mentally understand what it’s saying by just listening to our voice with an open heart. Sometimes it’s not so easy. We have to learn to respect our Voice, and let it be. In every state we humans are beautiful. There is a right time for everything.

UPDATE

I recently found that the beautiful Butterfly Bush or Buddleja or Buddleia with it’s amazing soothing of traumatized nerve endings in places few other herbs reach, is a powerful first aid remedy as well as provider of rehabilitation of the nerves that support voice function.

Hormones don’t make Feelings. Feelings make Hormones.

The Heart triggers off hormone production in the body. It’s the truth we’re not told because it would end the pharma industry that sells artificial and second hand hormones and hormone triggers.

If you’re serious about natural hormonal balance, the way is through the heart.

Here are 5 things about Hormones and the Heart you need to know:

1. Hormones don’t make feelings. Feelings make hormones.
2. The Heart frequency is the Earth frequency, is the Reality frequency.
3. Hormones produced by the Heart trigger off hormone production in the body. Make your own home food.
4) Your Body is your Heart. An exercise to release pain.
5) Steer clear of a pseudo heart frequency.

1. Hormones don’t make feelings. Feelings make hormones, and hormones make the body respond to those emotions with certain reactions.

A disruption in the translation from feelings to hormones causes depression. The person feels things but cannot translate them into mental realization and physical response which is the completion of the cycle.

The most common reason for this disruption is emotional suppression. If you don’t let yourself feel what you’re feeling, you’ll not allow the cycle of hormones to go fully through you.

2. The Heart frequency is the Earth frequency, is the Reality frequency

H E A R T  is an anagram of  E A R T H.

The Hearth was what the place near the fire in the center of a house used to be called, where the warmth went from to every corner, where the food was cooked.

Heart is Hearth of your Body.

The scientists have it that there’s a difference in the frequency between the heart and the earth, but in truth and in functional reality, the frequency of the heart is the frequency of the earth, and therefore the frequency of reality here.

You are not doing yourself a service of any sort when you suppress or evade the frequency of your heart in which you feel emotional. In fact to move out of that zone of feeling, is to move out of the zone where healing, intuition, instinct, life energy feed you.

If you want to deal with a situation, the first step to it is facing the reality of it. You cannot solve a problem until you actually see what it is. You cannot fight a battle if you don’t look at the battlefield, at your enemies, who is with you, who is for you, who is against you.

You need reality, and that reality cannot be assessed with the head and the sense organs. The world famous ‘sixth sense’ is just the Heart, is emotion.

When I was a teenager I was very enamored by the whole ‘open your third eye’ movement. Overnight I became a sort of minor celebrity and was called ‘psychic’. I was invited all over the place to peoples’ houses and people would come to my place all hours of day and night to get me to go to their house, or a sick person or help them choose a location for their house and so on.

Then I found the expectations were unfair to me and the situation became very abusive for me, because the truth is, I could only know stuff about those I care about, not those I don’t care truly about. And to be honest, I don’t care for just anyone. I’m just not Mother Teresa. I cannot control who I care about and who I don’t care about, it doesn’t go by logic at all, it’s something beyond the mind and rationality.

All humans, animals, plants, all living beings are ‘psychic’ when they love and care deeply about something. Some people love and care a little more than others, and maybe therefore are a little more perceptive but that’s how it is.

But that frequency, the frequency of the heart is what you need for your own life, for your safety, as your guide in the maze in of life.

Trauma and pain can make us temporarily move out of the heart frequency, but it really ought to be very very temporary, or we will stay out of reality frequency and make life moves based on lies and non-reality, that will keep us stalled.

And the hormones released by the heart will become poison in the body as they do not get processed the right and natural way.

3. Hormones produced by the Heart trigger off hormone production in the body.

Besides the fact that the vibrations of the heart trigger off hormone triggers in the brain – for example falling in love or meeting a loved one triggers off the release of pleasure hormones in the body; besides that sort of thing, that the heart itself directly produces hormones has been known for a long while.

All kinds of problems start as a result of the hormones of the heart not flowing out.

In fact, whether modern science acknowledges or not, and some groups do, the hormones released by the heart directly chemically play a role in the hormonal environment of the body. Important functions like growth and development – which means the development of sexual and reproductive mechanisms, brain health and so on, are triggered by and affected by hormones from the heart.

As a tiny little example – here are two research papers that talk about the affect of the hormones produced by the heart – ANF, ANP and BNP (don’t worry about the long forms) on growth, immune system management, inflammatory response.
The endocrine function of the heart
The endocrine heart and inflammation

That is just the very tip of the iceberg. If all that scientists knew about the heart were published, it would cause the overturn and the end of the modern pharma industry that is based on providing the body with substances it can produce itself, if triggered by the HEART.

But the heart with its primal sensory system called FEELINGS isn’t about to get any promotion from anyone out only to make money, as feelings and the heart are not something you can switch on and off, or put into pills, even though they keep trying century after century to do just that.

Your own heart’s feelings are your home food hormones for healing and hormonal balance.

It’s like home food. Any real doctor advises his patients, if they want to truly recover and be healthy, to eat home food, ie. food cooked at home. There’s the emotional aspect of it that nothing else can replace.

If someone makes ‘home food’, the second they package it and sell it, it stops being ‘home food’ anymore. ‘Made in A Home’ maybe, but it’s not YOUR home food.

So feelings cannot be packed, they must be made at home, by your heart in your body, for your healing.

4) A great heart said to me – Your Body is your Heart.

In fact it is literally true. While our physical heart is the motor, in truth every cell of us is part of that central Heart and every bit of us is filled with emotion.

To love and heal ourselves, we need to honor and accept the emotions of our body.

An exercise that helps release pain anywhere in the body is to just feel the center of pain in the body and count back from 10 to 1, each time going deeper and deeper into where the exact point of pain is. At 1, you speak out without thinking, what you are feeling there. If you can’t articulate it, just feel it fearlessly. You’ll slip out in the beginning, but keep coming back and going deeper and deeper to the center of the pain and facing it.

Often it will be an irrational fear, or something from a situation long gone, but it is valuable and that’s why it’s calling your attention.

The exercise done over time breaks the habit of running away from or suppressing a problem or a pain, instead of fearlessly facing it.

Try it and see how powerful it is.

5) Steer clear of a pseudo heart frequency.

Very often, people will develop a sort of emotional energy system that’s emotional indeed, but not connected to true feeling in the moment.

It could be based in a situation that’s long gone into the past, or some particular set of feelings they’re OK with feeling, maybe because those are socially accepted, or feelings that match those around them, or directly to deceive others.

When emotional outbursts drain energy, you know that there’s a pseudo heart frequency in operation, there’s something not quite real about it and it cannot help you in any way if it isn’t real.

Real emotional release is uplifting and clarifying even when painful, especially when painful.

Learn to tell the difference and let go of that which drains rather than clarifies and the pseudo emotional body will wither away.

Nervous & Emotional Healing with Cardio-Restorative Herbs

I’m a veteran of heart problems having had cardiac insufficiency due to trauma since the age of 8 and actually had two cardiac arrests at the age of 19. I was told then that there was no chance of a normal life ahead for me. They said I’d live only with the help of drugs to keep my heart beating regularly enough, and things like having a baby would be at the risk of death, unlikely anyway as I wouldn’t be able to cope with the increased heart rate that’s part of sex.

My Great-Great Grandad John Waltham didn’t even hear me out when I started telling him all that. He put me on the path to healing my heart and in the process over the years I used what I’d learned to help others – people and animals.

I’ve learned that if someone has a problem with their emotions – whether their heart is broken by a tragedy or a loss, or whether they experience un-explainable sorrow, or whether they feel emotionless and blocked up – a common experience for those with depression, all these can be helped in big ways with herbs that have traditionally been used to support and heal the physical heart.

Of course, just as there’s no point filling up your car’s tank with fuel if you don’t actually turn it on and go somewhere, so there’s no point taking herbs for healing, if you don’t use that support to find out what’s troubling you emotionally and face it. I wish they’d taught us that skill in school or at home growing up – it would’ve saved so many such pain.

But coming back to the herbs. The following are some of my most favorite herbs that not only heal the heart, but help the nervous system frequency get back to normal and help the person emotionally.

St. Ignatius Bean – Strychnos ignatii


or Ignatia is considered first aid because it sort of shocks the heart and the nervous system (taken in a tiny dose of course). The resulting effect has been called similar to Prozac.

What it does is deliver a tiny shock that stimulates the body into reacting to the shock with natural calming and soothing processes.

Now if someone had actually shocked our physically heart, the body would respond to that with all our natural healing processes starting up.

But the need for botanicals like Ignatia arise when the ‘hit’ or the ‘shock’ is an emotional one, and we suppress that from our awareness for whatever reason. In that case, for a long while the tissues of our body hold the tension, the nerves around the tissues stay magnetized in a particular high-tension frequency waiting for relaxation and release.

If that does not happen in a timely fashion, the tension everywhere gets conveyed to the heart through the blood and the heart – a healthy one at least does try to make the person aware that something’s wrong.

The feeling of tightness in the chest, the feeling of the heart fluttering, the feeling of the heart beating faster, all these are not just things for people with heart problems, they are the every day experience of humans of all ages everywhere. They are part of our inbuilt life experience, to help us make sense of what’s happening with us, to show us the paths to take in life.

And they have powerful effects on the rest of our body as well.

But all that is numbed down if we have an attitude of emotional suppression.

And that’s when we need plants like St. Ignatius Bean, that TELL the heart, “You, Yes You”. And then deliver a much required SLAP.

It won’t replace actual emotional awareness, but it does make the body react bringing relief to the entire system at least in the moment.

Lily of the Valley – Convallaria

Lily of the Valley causes a sort of spasm in the muscles of the body – remember the heart IS a muscle – because it gets the tiny little nerve endings on the muscles to change their frequency – a frequency brought on by trauma.

I have used it as first aid several times to relieve the pain after an emotional drama makes the nervous system and the heart all clenched up and tense and painful.

One drop of Lily of the Valley to 100ml of water, and that taken one drop, is enough to give considerable pain relief almost immediately just because of the relaxation of the nerve endings around the heart. Used with other heart support herbs it’s just wonderful altogether.

Cactus Grandiflora

Cactus stabilizes the nervous frequency and with it the heart beat.

Just like everything in nature moves to a beat, so our bodies move to the beat of our heart.

Imagine what would happen if in an orchestra, the conductor, the person who keeps beat so that the violins can play in harmony with the trumpets and the pianist and all the other players, forgets a beat or two, or just loses it and jerks about.

Cactus is medicine for the conductor of the music of our bodies and souls- the Heart. It soothes, inspires stability and calm.

You see the Cactus is a plant that doesn’t exactly grow in the most eay places to grow. A desert plant, it knows to wait. It feels the heat in the day without the drama plants from the temperate zones would go through, and it feels the cold desert nights just as calmly. When it has resources, it uses them frugally, storing up the rest. As if to prove that drama is not required to produce the most beautiful things, it puts out beautiful flowers and fruit that is food for living beings all around, just like those plants that grow with plenty of water and in rich soil. Such a wonderful gift to mankind, is Cactus, and such wonderful medicine for the heart and the whole body.

If you go through emotional extremes, Cactus will help you, it knows how to deal with extremes.

Rosehips

The Rose is about courage. Plain and simple. Physically, emotionally, everyone’s got a different experience, and there’s a lot written about the Vitamin C in Rosehips and all that. It all however comes down to one thing, it gives the heart and the body strength, and it gives the soul the feeling of being able to do what the person wants to do.

A lot of our emotional problems, depression and so on stem from feeling unable to do what we have to do to get where we want to get. It’s sad when a peson believes they just don’t have it in them to do what their soul longs to more than anything else. Life itself seems pointless unless we’re moving towards our dream.

Hawthorn or Crategeus

The Heart deeply and powerfully affects the hormonal situation in the body, influencing the balance (or imbalance) between male-female, hot-cold, active-resting hormones in the body.

Hawthorn helps those who have had trauma in the long term that has resulted in hormonal imbalance of any sort. Depression, inability to enjoy every day life, sexual deficiency, sensory deficiency, are all rooted in the heart’s not being able to play its role in the hormonal processes of the body well enough.

Hawthorn helps clear up blocked pathways, making blood flow easier. It balances flow of rhythm and circulation between the various compartments of the heart itself.

It strengthens the heart, toning its very tissue and with a stronger heartbeat so much in the body feels better already.

Both as first aid and as part of long term rehabilitation, Hawthorn is just wonderful.

Nettle – Urticaria

Nettle doesn’t have to be taken in big doses – which can have laxative effects – to support a heart that’s weak or inefficient because of sluggishness.

How does a heart go sluggish? A life of not getting enough real holistic stimulation can make the heart disinterested and withdrawing to the point of stopping responding to sensory stimulus even.

Our world is full of ways to stimulate the mind, the senses, the body, but these ignore the heart and the emotions for the most part. Exposure to this on a daily basis, leaving the heart behind, makes it withdraw and atrophy.

A whole lot of circulatory problems ensue which further cause all kinds of problems as so much in the body depends on the highways – the blood circulation.

Emotional stimulation – a life that you FEEL, that moves your heart, is the only LIFE really.

Nettle can support the heart in coming out again and from there you you have to be brave and let your self feel, and follow those feelings.

Lavender flowers – Lavandula Augustifolia

The connection between the heart and the brain is obviously one of the most important highways of the body. Tension and congestion here is bound to create trouble everywhere.

Lavender relaxes the nerves all over but especially in this area and therefore should be considered first aid for those facing problems stemming from deficient blood circulation to the head.

Most sleep trauma conditions, skin problems that are restricted to or most visible on the face and neck, scalp imbalances, chronic ENT issues that are emotionally or stress triggered are all helped by Lavender.

Herb Robert – Geranium Robertiana

This little flower grows in radiation hit zones because of it’s ability to maintain its own energy system independent of the surroundings. As such it is support in recovery from radiation induced sickness – nausea and the like.

For the heart specifically it is of great help in our times, as the Heart is affected by the frequency of every sorts of ‘radiation’ and a lot of what shows up as disinterest in life, the inability to taste well with the tongue, sluggish lymphatic draining etc. is the Heart’s needing a bit of a detox and comeback to regular frequency.

Passionflower – Passiflora Officinalis

Passionflower relaxes the nerves. It supports the various connective nerves of the body making life so much easier for the heart as it has to pump blood around.

Passionflower makes the environment around the heart to relax so the heart can relax too.

Best of all Passionflower helps break the habits our nervous system forms through stress, so for those who have had heart disease for along time, this can help break the habit of holding the heart muscle tight and cramped and furthering the problem.

Mistletoe – Viscum Album

The great balancer herb, and associated with romance around Christmas, Mistletoe balances the blood flow within the heart reducing the risk of a heart attack, reducing the risk of nervous breakdowns, emotional meltdowns and flare-ups and all that drama.

Think of it as a sort of buffering system. For those with atrial fibrillation and heart beat irregularity (arrhythmia), and ventricular disorders Mistletoe lends a sort of buffering so everything feels better almost immediately.

If you’re an emotional tight-rope walker, with great demands made on your heart every day, Mistletoe is the one for you.

Jujube – Zizyphus

This berry has all the nutrition the body needs for recovery from both short term and long term nervous and cardiac fatigue.

Tiredness of the mind, of the heart, and of the physical parts of us can be relieved in many ways, still this one is a cut above the others because it’s got a little of everything in a beautiful simple combination.

It’s just refreshing.
