Ed, one time I was going to have a heat stroke when I was in the last few months of being pregnant with Gabriel. I was so beyond hot, and no amount of water I drank was hydrating me enough. My internal organs, already extra warm because of being pregnant, were each radiating heat of its own.
How the Sea keeps the bio-rhythm of the Earth and therefore us, how Salt carries this vibration and helps us recover from rhythm disruption caused by trauma, shock, vaccination, radiation; How salt aids recovery of BALANCE of minerals in our bodies.
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.
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.
When we go through traumatic episodes one too many times, we learn to hold some parts of us tight, sometimes so tight that those parts of us, let’s say an area of the heart muscle for example, that the place becomes hard, taut, and even develops scar tissue or adhesions over the years.
These are notoriously hard to discover by xray or other methods because they aren’t so easy to see. But they are felt indeed and can cause a lot of pain and discomfort.
Very often, it is years before we notice exactly where we’ve got a hard part of an organ wall. By then the nerves and muscles in the area have fallen into the habit of being tense and staying taut, compromising blood circulation, causing that organ to be sluggish or hyperactive and/or malfunction.
Throughout history humans have used the nuances of voice to understand one another. We understand instinctively what we really mean by the little jumps and stops and changes in tone and pitch and volume of our voices.
My interest in the topic started back in school days when the school choir was competing in a big competition and we were all very careful to keep our voices in order through the months of practice for the big day.

I write this article from personal experience. When I was 13, I developed shortsightedness or myopia almost overnight. I had terrible headaches reading, and after many weeks of suffering, was finally prescribed glasses that made me able to read without a headache again.
At first I found wearing glasses pretty cool. For once in my life I looked like a ‘good’ girl by convent school standards. Spectacles meant you were the studying type. My glasses were photo-sensitive which meant they turned dark when I was out in the sun. That made me very cool riding on my bicycle (or so I thought, till an old teacher told me only criminals and film stars wore dark glasses and I better come back to reality).
