Banyan Tree Fruit – The Kansas City Shuffle – Breaking out of a Stalemate Situation

banyan-herbal-medicine
All you can see in the picture, is ONE Banyan tree that spreading out.

The fruit of the banyan tree is as much a wonder and a miracle as the rest of the tree. It develops according to the biorhythms of the tree and can be found around the year depending on how the tree has acclimatized to where it is.

This tree’s virility of rooting, growth and spreading – so much so one tree can cover acres and acres of land, are legendary.

Naturally the fruit has been used as support for sexual energy deficiencies and fertility in both men and women.

This is a young Banyan Tree putting out its first aerial roots about fifteen feet up from the ground.

However it isn’t exactly an aphrodisiac. Rather, it works on a very basic level providing all the basic nutrition a person needs, much like baby food does, repairing a person on a very basic level so fertility and everything it needs all come in one big package.

Nutritionally, the more popular fig – Ficus Carica – beats it as a food. But when it comes to trace minerals, the banyan fruit – Ficus Benghalensis is on a whole other level.

While it doesn’t have the sugars of the popular fig, essential food for sustenance, especially in the warm climate the common fig is native to, what the banyan fruit does have is those trace substances that address a person’s vital requirements for growth and repair.

In situations where a person is unable for some reason to work up the mojo to get past a plateau in healing or progress; when there’s a wound that simply won’t heal, when the person seems to be going around in circles getting ill, becoming alright, falling ill, getting well – really well, before relapsing – and this isn’t because of an obvious condition in the environment that’s causing the problem, the fruit of the Banyan helps breakthrough.

It is my medicine of choice to break a stalemate situation especially those that have an element of lack or deficiency in them. Where the person cannot seem to RETAIN or SUSTAIN energy long enough to break through.  

If someone says they’ve been in the same situation a long long while with ups and downs but always keep coming back to square one or ground zero – whatever you call it – I put banyan fruit in their medicine. It simply cannot hurt anyone – human or animal of any age.

In unnecessarily high doses it can cause vertigo in those who have been nutritionally deprived as the body spins into action to absorb the trace minerals it offers.

Have you heard of the Kansas City Shuffle? It’s this sort of method of bringing out a hidden enemy, or tricking one, by pretending to be one of the preys of the predator. The enemy reveals their location and becomes vulnerable as they come out to get the prey and have basically walked into a trap.

That’s how the banyan fruit works. It provides all the basic nutrition that makes predatory illnesses – ie. energy patterns not natural to the human body and the cells that carry them, lurking around the body like vampires, go dizzy with delight and think, “Yay, this is good stuff.” They go into overdrive, feasting on the nutrition and realize too late – this is not the common fig – this is the fruit of the banyan tree. “We should’ve googled it before feasting on it. We cannot really digest this stuff. We’re not natural. We only eat sugar. Oh no, oh no…. ”

Before long the unnatural cell is a dead cell and being thrown out.

I often combine banyan fruit with Milk Thistle and other support for the liver and for the lymphatic system to help throw out the dead cells and finish the job.

Now this is not something that happens overnight and it is quite draining and not advisable to use big doses of Banyan Fruit on its own. A better course of action is a smaller dose spread over six months to a year along with other herbs to help the body adjust to the changes brought about by the Banyan Fruit.

When the body changes, the consciousness changes. When the consciousness changes, our life changes. Every natural herb you make part of your life changes your consciousness and your life, whether you can see it or not.

The fruit of the banyan changes a life in very basic ways as it provides basic nutrition you might’ve been lacking for years or decades, changes on levels that might not be obvious but which as time goes is the equivalent of a paradigm shift.

Slow and steady wins the race, they say. The banyan fruit totally expresses that proverb into physical reality.

Have a Fear Free Natural Birth with Herbs

recovery-after-birth-dog
Valentine Garland – 1891

Having had a dog give birth thrice at my house before I myself had a child, taught me more about giving birth than all the books and videos on the internet, not to mention the hush-hush births I’d been around in human hospitals.

Dogs approach birth without the trained tension and worry humans go through.

The first time a dog in my care was pregnant, she got a terrible stomach infection and couldn’t keep anything in. I dutifully took her to a vet, “just to be on the safe side”. The vet ordered an xray.

I was amazed. Here was an exhausted pregnant dog in distress and he was ordering an xray?

“That’s the only way to know what’s happening,” he said. Apparently he couldn’t even tell if she was pregnant or not without an xray.

Now there are times when xrays are helpful and I’ve been fascinated now and again by xrays of the human body on Pinterest. But no one should be exposed to radiation because of a stomach infection, least of all a pregnant dog.

So I took the dog home, and never crossed the threshold of a vet again.

She thrived on my herbal medicine recovered from the stomach infection, and gave birth naturally and without drama at home. She weaned her dogs when she felt like it and they went off to new homes quite prepared for life ahead.

I used a mix of herbs for uterine strength and recovery in breeding dogs with some extra herbs added just for her needs – because every dog is different. Some doggie mothers need more nervous support, some need kidney support, some need help to stimulate the mammary glands, some just need a little more vital energy.

A few years later when I gave birth to my son, through the process of labor, all sorts of fears hit me. I realized how very fear-filled nearly all published information about the human birth process is. If that wasn’t enough, the process of looking after a new born, establishing feeding, and all that, they’re topics touched upon with so much fear and political correctness.

The joy of having a child gets worn away by all the fear mongering.

At about thirty hours into labor that didn’t seem to be progressing at all, I realized that and decided to throw everything I’d read about human birth right out of my mind.

People don’t sit around telling people exactly how to make a baby. Sure there’s the birds and the bees talk maybe once or twice before you’re an adult and you figure things out after that.

Giving birth is as natural as making a baby, and looking after the baby comes naturally too.

I remembered the grace and simplicity with which animals give birth when they’re allowed to be healthy and natural.

Once I began to throw the fear mongering out of my head, labor progressed pretty quickly and my son was born.

I carried and gave birth to my son, and cared for all his baby needs without any allopathic drugs.

The big part of pregnancy, birthing and post partum recovery, is having enough good oil in your diet.

After that, comes herbal support. My Herbal Medicine for Pre and Post Natal, Labor & Birthing Support usually has Vervain, Rosehips, St. Mary’s Thistle, Yarrow, Saw Palmetto, Cactus, Black Cohosh, Agnus Castus . I add other herbs depending on the mother’s needs – often using the good old combination of Pulsatilla and Phytolacca for uterine relaxation and lymphatic stimulation.

Vervain is for nervous support.
Rosehips is for vital energy.
St. Mary’s Thistle helps the mother’s liver deal with the rushes of hormones flooding her body through the birth process.
Yarrow supports tissue healing and recovery as well supports the cessation of heavy bleeding.
Saw Palmetto supports the heart, the uterus and the muscles all over the body is recovering from the strain of giving birth.
Cactus is a wonderful nervine to maintain calm through it all. I don’t know why mothers aren’t given more HEART and CARDIAC support, when so much about birth – I would say everything – is about the heart.
Black Cohosh is pure immediate strength for a uterus at its most strenuous time of life.
Agnus Castus helps maintain hormonal calm through what can be a turbulent time.

For emergency use – the painkiller herbs White Willow Bark, Ruta (for tearing pain), St. John’s Wort should be at hand, as should a powerful pain relieving oil – these same herbs in an oil will do a good job.

Make Armpit Sniffing Great Again – Yeast and Healing, Fertility, Wellness

A few months ago I wrote a 28 page book about Yeast or, as I like to call it, The Benefits of Armpit Sniffing.

Yeast isn’t a topic that made anyone world famous of healing you’re after, this is something you simply have to have as a foundation if you want to sustain healing.

Because of legal restrictions before I wasn’t able to put this book on my website for all to read for free. That’s sorted out now, and you can read it online  or rich, so there’s very little about it spoken or written, outside the world of ‘general wellness’.

Yet, if you are looking to recover from chronic illness, or let’s say – a life where your body doesn’t support or match your spirit, Yeast is critical for recovery. No matter what sortby clicking on the link below:
The Spirit of Yeast – Ebook .

The Paperback version of this book, is available on Amazon.com.

Work WITH your energy, not against it. Male & Female Energy Flow

This is a topic that cannot be spoken about in one go. It’s something you have to learn a little about and then digest and observe in your self and others before you go on, or it will all be just a mash-up of information in your head that makes no difference in reality.

All humans do not have the same energy flow patterns. In fact every human has a different energy flow pattern.

Male energy fields are distinctly different from female energy fields.

Male energy fields thicken through the colder months of the year, their life experience becoming more intense overall. Through the warmer parts of the year their energy fields thin out, as they release energy and interact with the environment in a lighter manner.

This of course is affected by several other factors, but it is something so primal and such a fact of life, that throughout history there have been ‘seasons’ ruling the activities of men and humankind in general, and it’s not all about only the weather on the outside. The weather on the inside matters a huge deal.

Female energy fields on the other hand, have a different energy pattern that follows a monthly cycle whether a woman is in the menstruating time of life or not.

The female energy field has concentrated energy in the center of the field, around the core of the abdomen, at the start of her period. The concentration spreads out through the next two weeks and expands fully around the time of ovulation and then the spread concentrates back into the center over the next 2 weeks.

So it’s two weeks expanding and two weeks contracting.

Now mind that there are several ways this flow is influenced and there are women for example who have menstrual cycles while they are pregnant too, the menstrual and the pregnancy cycles overlapping each other. In the case of men, changing their location where they have two summers or two winters a year can make a big difference. There are several such scenarios, but the basic pattern remains anyway.

This means that while for men the way they experience life and interact is more or less a stable, gradually changing scenario, in contrast, for women the intensity of life experience changes every fortnight at least.

A way to understand this is – If a man is on a journey, he finds himself going through a plain for 3 days. After 3 days gradually the train he is in finds itself moving to higher ground and then very gradually the train goes higher and higher until it is in the mountains. After a while there, the altitude changes ad slowly the man finds himself coming lower until days later he is in the plains again.

A woman on the other hand finds herself going through the plains for 2 hours, then the bus goes uphill at an angle of 45 degrees and she finds herself in the mountains for 2 hours, after which there’s the steep and sudden descent and she’s back in the plains.

As her energy is concentrated in the center of her energy field her soul wants to give attention to matters that are primal and central to the core of her being. As the energy field expands, her soul gives attention to things more external to her, her environment and so on.

Now, taking the condition of heavy menstrual bleeding as an example of just one of the many conditions women have as a result of not understand how the energy field works, I find that while herbs are wonderful help, to understand the emotional and energetic demands on the female body is one of the most powerful ways to actually heal.

Check out the herbs mentioned on my Herbal Treatment for Heavy Period Bleeding and Chronic Uterine Hemorrhage page (one of my most popular treatments), to get an idea of how herbs can be used to help stabilize energy flow to greatly lessen PMS/PMT and heavy bleeding.

Modern life is unreasonable in the demands it makes on women. It’s just the truth, and it needn’t be that way at all. I know a lot of women who do all they want to do only because they are aware of their body’s energetic and their soul’s emotional shifts and instead of fighting and suppressing those, work with them.

Working with our bodies means a different way of doing things from what we might have been taught in school and learned from others.

If you do not have the energy you need to get through the year or through the month, you know you have to become gentler and more understanding and work with your body instead of against it.

When you know what you’re going through, you begin to find little things that work for you and those make huge changes.

To allow your attention and energy to flow in ways it wants to, is a powerful habit that leads to quality of life and success in everything you want.

The Curse of the Bamboo – Bamboo for Fertility, Connectivity, Conduction

In the early 1900s there were recorded two severe famines in and around the wild bamboo forests of the North-East of India. Every thirty years these famines would strike.

The cause of the terrible famines was investigated and discovered. Every thirty years, the bamboo flowered and fruited. The fruit would fall down onto the floor of the forest, where rodents, especially rats feasted on them. This resulted in the virility and fertility of the rats increasing so much – an expert said it was 80 -90 times more than usual – and they reproduced as much very quickly.

The huge population of rats then went out from the forest into the countryside looking for food, eating up everything they possibly could. They’d get into the granaries of the time, into fields and barns and homes.

Therefore the flowering of the bamboo became considered more a curse than a blessing.

Bamboo grows easily all over the world. It’s got wonderful nutrients, in fact it’s a sure way to quickly give your hair and skin and teeth and nails a boost, because it’s got so much silica, one of the building blocks of all those.

What I find most amazing about it is how beneath all of its benefits is its ability to support energy and electric conductivity in the body, and on a consciousness level too.

It’s something you try if you find that the herbs you’re taking, or the nutrition you’re having doesn’t seem to reach where it’s supposed to go.

In every way, if you find that one part of you is all passionate and motivated to do something, that other parts of you don’t seem to be able to support, Bamboo’s the one to help.

Bamboo can be had as a tea, powdered dried leaf or as an extract. A little goes a long way. It works best when you take a little of it over a long period of time, like 6 months to a year.

Speaking of fertility. This funny thing happened to me once. I was in a park trying to take a picture of two monkeys nibbling on Bamboo leaves. Between the time I zoomed in on them and clicked they’d done from just nibbling on leaves companionably to errr.. making love. It was quite embarrassing for me standing there with my camera pointing at them and people staring at me like I’m a pervert.

Well I doubt bamboo would work that quick for humans but who knows, perhaps if you have a really strong tea, you never know.

Almost any health regimen will benefit from a boost to connectivity and connection within the body though.

Note: If you want to collect your Bamboo leaves from a densely populated wild place, make sure you put on some mosquito repellent cream as mosquitoes tend to breed in areas like those Bamboo likes – rather wet, almost swampy. I forgot and my son and I got bit all over the face and arms just before I took this video.
