The Soul has a Homeland; Healing Energy Depression & Upper-Lower Body Conflict

The phenomenon of people getting energy and strength from other places they feel they belong to; Strained connection to soul-homeland as a cause of energy depression and upper-body versus lower body conflict. 

Dear Ed,
On an Instagram account I follow, a hypnotherapist spoke of how a client of his said in hypnosis that she’s connected to a particular place from where she as a soul is, and she derives strength from there for her life here.

This has fascinated me – how our soul stays connected to particular places – particular land forms and eco-systems for strength and sustenance. Continue reading

The Predator Cycle Principle of Holistic Healing

I describe the Predator Cycle method which nature uses when the very core and fiber of a structure is too weak for the usual healing processes to work.

Dear Ed,

I was recently reminded of the predator cycle principle of healing.

One afternoon, a whole ten years ago, when I was very ill, very alone and very helpless, I was in bed dozing.

As I dozed I saw a strange dream. You know those dreams in which you’re in the same place as you are, but you’re not sleeping, you’re awake and something’s happening that’s not happening in reality? 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.

Don’t fear the pain. Migraines – Holistic Treatment

Letter to Ed about my Granddad’s way of treating a chronic migraine, herbs for rehabilitation from migraine, and an exercise to realign the spine for pain relief. 

Ed, a headache or, in its extreme form, called a Migraine, can be caused by so many different reasons – from hormonal extremes, to nervous tension, to dehydration, to liver congestion and even plain stress.

Essentially however, it is a call for immediate help from the energy field. It means that the brain which manages the functions of the body, is stressed, overworked and under-functioning and NO MORE WORK can be done at this time. Continue reading

Thymus – Our Intelligence High Command

Wherein I describe to Ed, the angel that sits on the heart, the Thymus, how it is indispensable at any age, how it manages our response to new and unforeseen situations; the folly of undermining its authority with artificial immunity, the methods that support it, and the herbs that support the revival of natural intelligence in the body and life.

Dear Ed,

In my teens, I often used to help out with sick children – in situations where a parent had to deal with two or three ill children at the same time and so on. Continue reading

Herbs to Release Pent-up Rage

Anger that isn’t released becomes Rage. There are so very many physical conditions that are the result of anger bottled up that I cannot list them here.

There’s a simple rule of thumb. If you’re attracted to this topic, you most probably have pent up rage or someone you care about deeply, who influences you deeply has it.

These herbs have been my friends through the worst times of my life and I present them to you as I got to know them.

This is not a comprehensive list of all they are and do, just what I have been privileged to come to know of. They are living spirits and have different relationships with each person. Continue reading

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.

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

Chilblains & Raynaud’s Syndrome – Herbs to Balance Body Temperature

As a sufferer of severe Raynaud’s where my finger joints would go purple and black every winter, I’ve given a lot of thought to this condition and tried all kinds of treatments for it till I finally found something that really worked.

Creams that have lanolin (sheep fat) work the best to create a layer of protection from the cold, and the topical application of Winter Cherry, Spikenard, Datura and other herbs that create warmth locally, are necessary as you will have to keep your fingers and toes as warm as possible. Continue reading

Chronic Nervous Inflammation – Reversing the Trend

Some years ago I was sitting in a bus-stop when I saw a woman shuffling along with a bag she was finding hard to carry even though it didn’t look very big or bulky. She should’ve been able to put it on her shoulder and keep walking. Instead she was lugging it with both her hands, in front of her, walking awkwardly.

I finally decided that whatever was inside that little bag was something really heavy. Something like a big rock.

That’s how life is for people with chronic inflammation of the brain and nervous system. 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
