The 4 levels of Poison and how to effectively de-toxify

The 4 levels on which poisons work – Blood, Water; Electricity and Consciousness – and how to remove them holistically. 

Dear Ed,

Believe it or not, I first wrote this article in 2013, while at very close quarters to a snake – on the other side of the skinny bedroom wall – in a tiny guesthouse under a cliff that broke rain clouds, so that building was half sunk into the mud because of the constant deluge. I was terrified initially, but there was nowhere else I could go and after about 15 minutes sensing the snake, I began to actually feel calmed by it. I have nothing but loving memories and gratefulness for that encounter. That night in bits and pieces as I dozed this article came to me. Here it is, edited for now. Continue reading

Herbs for Oxygenation; Breathing Distress, Fatigue, Kidney Rehab, Diabetes, Edema etc.

Letter to Ed about how cardiac stimulants like codeine and other opioids kill, and listing 7 herbs that help the blood carry oxygen better all around the body, for recovery from all the malarial “fever” symptoms like breathing distress; kidney disease, chronic fatigue and so on. 

Ed, I recently read with anguish a historical account of what can now only be called murder. A woman struggling to recover from the loss of a child, was found low in energy soon after. Bedridden out of sorrow more than any physical problem, however, she was given a physical treatment for ‘dropsy’ – which is basically the swelling or water retention that is common after childbirth when a woman is not able to get back into normal movement which oxygenates the body.

This beautiful flower’s fragrance is most stunning in the night. It’s spicy and sweet and refreshing.

When a flower sends out its fragrance at night, you know that it helps in the regenerative functions of the brain and nervous system. That means it helps repair damage to the brain and nerves that we go through during the day, helps recovery from stress.

This flower does send its fragrance out in the day as well but it is most concentrated in the late evenings and night.

The tea made from its leaves and flowers is a wonderful calming relaxing cuppa without any of the extra tartness or extra heaviness that can be irritating in other herbs. It is just right. Continue reading

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

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.

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. Continue reading

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.

Me versus Me – Herbs for Autoimmune and Histamine Disorders

When I was at university, I used to cut across the golf course instead of taking the long way around the drive. One day on my way to an exam as I was running across the golf course around noon, I ran into a whole lot of flies, just flies. My face began to itch like crazy. When I reached the building where the exam was, I rushed to the bathroom and discovered to my horror that my face and neck were covered in huge red welts and swollen up – I was unrecognizable. I did the exam anyhow, but it took several hours for the welts and swelling to subside and I never ran across a golf course in the heat of day ever again. Continue reading
