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

Fading Away – Old Photograph

“Fading Away “1858 Henry Peach Robinson

This old photograph brings to mind how the lack of interest in life caused by shock or trauma of some kind can indeed be life threatening.

We cannot negotiate with the decisions of our spirit, but if you or a loved one is fading away because of not being able to face or deal with buried or overwhelming trauma, herbs can help.

Can you Regenerate Atrophied Areas of the Body with Herbs?

This week I was asked a question:

Is there something that can be done to recover an atrophied optic nerve? Can herbs help?

My answer can be applied to all atrophy in the body.

Have I actually seen this work? Yes I have.

There was a woman who had atrophy in various parts of the body after a severe stroke. I have personally seen the power of herbs combined with exercises that increase blood circulation to the area. I have also seen atrophy caused by malnutrition in the developing years, reversed. I have also seen atrophy caused by sitting at a desk job for 40 years, reversed.

I have also seen again and again that while doing so results in some benefits, it is ultimately the overall health and vitality levels of the body that decide what happens. A healthy body will heal and recover its atrophied parts on its own. Continue reading

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. Continue reading

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. Continue reading

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. Continue reading

End Chronic Illness – Metastasis or Shape Shifting Illness & Decisive Resolution

Metastasis is a word used to explain the movement of a disease or illness from one part of the body to another.

Cancer for example is pretty much treated like an evil spirit that when kicked out of one area, could well go and establish itself somewhere else. Infection in general can be like that too – spreading from let’s say the throat to the ears to the sinuses up the forehead.

But metastasis also happens, and more frequently than cancer or infection, as what is called ‘myopathy’ which just means weakness or under-functioning, or as inflammation. Continue reading
