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 Amazing Life Energy of Plumeria or Frangipani

Photos of a Plumeria or Frangipani tree blooming SIX MONTHS after being uprooted; stalk of Plumeria I picked up in March, leafing without earth, water, direct sunlight in July.

Dear Ed,

I am not very familiar with the use of Plumeria or Frangipani as a typical herbal medicine as it was not one of those my family or Granddad had familiarity with.

However, I have recently had a most amazing experience.

There was a row of Frangipani trees along a walkway I used to take Gabriel walking on.

One day on some project to cut across the path, they uprooted one and let it lie across the path instead of clearing it away. Continue reading

Dear Ed,

As a lover of the sea you don’t need to be reminded of the healing power of salt. But I’m writing this, as I’ve been mostly a mountain and high altitude dweller and for me, meeting the sea has been an amazing experience. Continue reading

Herbs for Fear Induced Cramps & Spasms – Asthma, Bronchitis, Abdominal Cramps

Letter to Ed describing my very crazy but true story about how I almost died from fear induced asthma when I was fifteen – I went from healthy to dying in 3 weeks. My experience with fear in childbirth and the greatest line up of herbs ever to relieve lung, uterine and abdominal cramps + two breathtakingly beautiful tropical herbs.

Ed, first of all I have to confess I’m writing this to you just to show off the pictures I took of a particular herb taking over the hillside. I feel like my home team is winning when herbs spread over other vegetation. It isn’t that I don’t like other vegetation, but when a particular herbs spreads virulently, it MEANS something, it’s a message from nature for the times. The plant is being energized by the earth to grow and spread because there is need for it. Continue reading

Ceanothus – New Jersey Tea – Recovery From Shock

Ceanothus Americana - New Jersey Tea or Red Root
Ceanothus Americana – New Jersey Tea or Red Root

Today I came across on a gardening show, the stunning ethereal Ceanothus.

Why it is called New Jersey Tea is because during the war of the American Revolution ie. the war which resulted in the USA forming as a country independent from Britain, American dependence on tea, which was at the time mostly imported through the British commercial networks, had to be stopped.

The leaves of this wild shrub were used instead of Camellia Sinensis – which is the usual tea plant.

Now if you have your teas right, you know it’s actually rather difficult to find something to replace the usual tea leaf. There’s something about Camellia Sinensis that’s just right. It doesn’t push you over the top in any way. It’s uplifting and calming and holding together in a very balanced way. Continue reading

Cactus Plantation, 1885

At Noon on a Cactus Plantation in Capri, 1885

– Peder Mork Monsted

Cactus Grandiflora is my No.1 first aid remedy for all Heart, Blood & Circulatory Conditions inPeople Dogs Horses Cats.

The Bottles in my Bag

The 4 bottles are one each for:

General Emergencies
Shock & Nervous Support
Wound First Aid
Pain Killer

My Granddad would’ve laughed at these. A bottle of Scottish whisky is what the great solver of everyone’s problems went about with. My other Granddad who was a doctor in the Army, swore by Irish Guiness which he even used to help women in labor.

But me being such a good girl and upstanding citizen, I carry around four little bottles of herbs. They’ve met all our emergency needs for years. 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

Herbs to increase heart beat strength and support blood cell making

Some months ago I wrote about how the quality of blood cells being made in the body lessens drastically when faced with shock, trauma or a life not satisfying to the spirit.

I recommended the simple exercise where you feel your heart beat. Exercises of awareness are so simple, yet their power is amazing and doing them is so worth the few minutes they take.

When you look at it very close, the core of blood building function is a strong robust balanced heart beat. Support heart beat strength and you’re healing everything everywhere. The heart beat is what pushes life all around. Continue reading

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. Continue reading
