I was chatting to some neighbors recently and as I listened to them talk about their medical issues I felt deep compassion for them.
Incorrect diet, smoking, and a slew of medication all sanctioned and approved by the government is dooming them to a life of continued ill-health. The side effects of their medications has altered their quality of life.
I do use allopathic medicine, make no mistake. But fortunately I am not taking anything on a regular basis. Homeopathy is my medicine of choice as well as other energy healing modalities.
“Regular” medicine affects the body’s ability to achieve homeostasis: the ability to self heal and achieve a healthy balance. Allopathic medicine serves to suppress symptoms and cause an imbalance elsewhere. When the TV ads declare their litany of side-effects at the end of every ad, in that quiet not-to-be-heard tone and sound the dire warnings of the possible things that can go wrong, it is proof that the suppression of one disease causes other problems.
Homeopathy does not do this. I cannot persuade anyone that it is better, all I can say is that it worked for me and my children. And my animals. So the whole “mind over matter” or “placebo effect” doesn’t really hold water for me.
Cannabis Sativa, the homeopathic form of the plant works on a different level, but is no less effective in curing certain conditions.
The remedy which is made into a tincture from European or American hemp uses the flowering tops of the plant.
It can be used for the following problems (1):
- postpartum hemorrhage
- urethral caruncle
The mind/emotional symptoms are as always, very important when trying to establish if the remedy suits the individual, as are sensations.
Cannabis Sativa is NOT the cannabis (marijuana) that is smoked. Although they are botanically identical, the difference stems from the soil in which it is grown. The chemicals in the soil affect the cannabinoids, hence the difference. (For more information see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemp)
The following article reveals how cannabis in herbal or unguent form can help heal people from a myriad of diseases: http://themindunleashed.org/2013/07/cannabis-cures-cancer-and-government.html
It works. There is proof. But where would TV advertising be if the whole cycle of disease and advertising revenue from pharmaceuticals weren’t there to provide income for them? How would they be able to exercise mind control over the masses if they were well and taking responsibility for their own health? They constantly instil fear into the viewers’ minds, not only in terms of health, but in everything they report. It is a vicious onslaught and the only cure is to turn off the television and educate yourself.
Life is cured by death. It is a terminal condition. It does not go on forever. Enjoy it while you can.

Intensifying planetary infrasound resonance is now actively flooding many lands, opening sinkholes, releasing methane pockets and thrusting the continental plates and volcanic ocean depths into a fury. These rapidly escalating planetary imbalances are clear signs that the process of magnetic reversal of the Earth is already well underway, driving the ascension of consciousness: The Shift of the Ages.
The unobservant who rushed to deny the significance of the elapse of the Mayan long count calendar cycle on December 21, 2012 must now reconsider many erroneous assumptions. The largely unnoticed cosmic alignment marked by the Mayan cycle reflects ancient Sanskrit astronomical knowledge, informing the Biblical Judgment Day event so ominously referenced in various gospels:
For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and…

There are many misconceptions about homeopathy, the greatest one being the belief that one has to keep taking the remedy until the bottle is empty. Homeopathy operates on the dictum: “Less is more“.
- Do NOT continue taking all the medication once you have noticed an improvement! You will exacerbate the problem if you do this. Take only until there is improvement. The body will heal itself!
The second biggest problem is not matching the remedy to your symptoms.
- Homeopathy is EXTREMELY specific, it is not a blanket one-remedy-treats all. How does the injury feel? What is the pain like? What color is your tongue and your phlegm, your urine, your feces? Don’t go “eeuw”, it’s your body, know it, honor it and heal it. Notice changes after taking a remedy and adjust it accordingly!
Arnica is most often the first homeopathic remedy a person will try and then complains if it isn’t working.
- Arnica is NOT a cure all! It works for a specific set of injuries and problems, and if it isn’t working, you are taking the wrong remedy for your problem, or you are taking too much! People become disenchanted with homeopathy as a result and then believe it doesn’t work.
The misconception that after everything has been tried, try homeopathy as a last resort.
- Don’t expect miracles if you have a chronic disease and have been on multiple rounds of allopathic prescriptions. It takes time to heal the layers of dis-ease, it is not an overnight cure-all.
Taking the wrong remedy will not magically heal you. If you are not seeing results, go and see a homeopath who has been trained to help you. The majority of them have been thoroughly educated and have tremendous skills in finding the correct remedy for your ailment. Don’t go to a medical doctor who prescribes homeopathy unless he/she has been properly trained by a reputable Homeopathy college.
There are plenty of good websites with information, as well as books by reputable homeopaths. My first handbook was one by Miranda Castro. I studied it, and yes, it was difficult to get to grips with looking up the mental and emotional symptoms, as well as the physical ones, but once you realize that the body does not work in isolation of other parts or the mental/emotional aspects of our being, it becomes easier to come to grips with.
- Learn which potencies are best suited to your particular needs. Anything below a 200C is safe and gentle, but a 200C is for acute physical situations and certain remedies, such as Hepar Sulf work well as long as you don’t overuse it.
- The 1 and 10 M’s are for deep seated chronic issues that take time to heal. There are even higher dilutions than that, but you need to consult a homeopath in order to use those.
Stop being lazy. If you want to get better, do something about it. Stop “OWNING” YOUR DISEASE! You are not your disease! And take note of how your emotional state affects your health!
No one can work miracles except yourself. It’s your choice, your life and your responsibility! Educate yourself, there are many, many sites and videos on the internet.
Live long and prosper!

Breast lumps are not uncommon and they are usually tender, in my case it felt like a muscular pain. I detected the lump while showering and decided to take remedy I have used to great effect a few years previously for the same problem.
Allium Sativa is an amazing remedy for this problem. I took two doses and the lump and the tenderness had disappeared within three days. Allium Sativa is the Latin name for garlic. It is an amazing remedy!
Please consult your physician if you have a problem. Do not rely on this information alone to self treat.
One of the most frequent misconceptions that occurs among the lay public is that homeopathy and herbal remedies are the same thing. I understand where the confusion arises: both are manufactured from natural occurring substances. So, therefore herbal supplements are safe, no?
No. No they are not!
Homeopathic remedies (of which there are more than 3,500) are made from naturally occurring substances such as herbs, plants, flowers, bugs, minerals and even non-tangible things such as X-rays and gases such as hydrogen. The process is highly refined and specialized and made under strictly defined conditions. A substance such as calcium, for example, will be diluted to the point at which nothing of the original substance remains. It is also succussed, or shaken. This dilution is made using water or alcohol, and then it is then added to lactose-based pillules ( tiny pills) or it may be dispensed in a solution. The remedy is taken sublingually and should be allowed to dissolve, not swallowed or chewed.
Herbal remedies, on the other hand, employ the actual plant, root or leaf containing the desired medicinal properties. This is no different to many pharmaceutical medicines because the chemical compounds or substances are going to have side effects, or cause allergic reactions in some unfortunate people ( like me!) I am not always sure that the vitamins and supplements really contain the best quality since the manufacture of these is not regulated by the FDA, whereas homeopathic remedies are very strictly supervised.
Vitamins can cause side effects, such as nausea which I discovered to my detriment. I am unable to take anything containing nicotinamide (Vit. B3), Vit. C, Vit. D and the popular supplement COQ10. They cause nausea and make me feel really ill. I have never experienced side-effects from homeopathic remedies which are seldom taken long term. You stop taking the remedy as soon as you begin to feel better. The rule is: it’s not how much you take of the remedy, it is how often. When I lived in South Africa I once sent a vial of pillules to school for my daughter who was not well, and the teacher gave her an entire vial instead of a mere capful. I called my homeopath and he assured me she would be fine, and she was. I had to get another dose from him because she needed to take another three doses of the remedy. She had no reaction to the “overdose” whatsoever.
Please educate yourselves about supplements, don’t blindly buy them because some celebrity endorses them. It is better to get your vitamins and minerals from healthy foods than swallowing tablets! I know not everyone is allergic to them, but as my old dad used to say ( and he was an M.D.), “They just get peed out, no point in taking them!”
Homeopathy is safe, gentle and has been used for more than a hundred years. It is very popular in Europe and South Africa, Australia, India and New Zealand.

If you thought homeopathy is quackery (which I don’t, but you have my sympathies) the following is going to have you throw up your hands in the air and exclaim, “What next?”. If you have never had the wonderful opportunity to experience Reiki healing or Touch for Health Kinesiology, then this next blog is not for you.
Regular lap band surgery is a procedure that is occurring more and more frequently as a cure for diabetes, high blood pressure and the attendant risk factors that are associated with being overweight. I know from personal experience how difficult it is to lose weight, especially after the age of 55. It feels as if you are caught in a cage of unyielding flesh that becomes more and more difficult to move. Five ladies that I am acquainted with have now had the regular surgery. It involves months of counselling, classes on diet and nutrition and then the recovery period where they cannot eat much (hello, DIET!!!). The pro’s are of course skinnier, healthier bodies…unless of course you prefer to consume your calories in er, um, liquid form… which must be a huge temptation if you enjoy your adult beverages.
I have heard of people (Chris Christie, for one) who initially lose weight and then begin to overeat again, gaining back all their losses. The problem is that the imbalance in the body has not been corrected. I believe there is far more to losing and keeping off the weight than the medical establishment is ready to admit to.
As far as I can remember, I never felt full. It is as if there was a disconnect between my body and my brain. I could eat any many man under the table. I have a huge appetite that just never feels that it is getting enough. An obsession with food has been my shadow for many years, always buying and stocking up on food to ensure I would not go hungry. I don’t have a sweet tooth, my weight is entirely due to eating too much meat and fat. I even eschew pasta, bread and baked goods for the most part. One day, I decided that well, I was fat anyway, I may as well eat all the carbs I have been avoiding, and BOOM! I gained about another twenty pounds, seemingly overnight.
I lost 55 lbs four years ago, was exercising and felt really good, and then I kinda went off the rails and four years later all that weight was back again, plus five more. I tried various diets, but was unable to stick to any of them. They all work, if you follow them. The problems (and any overweight person knows this) you have to WANT TO LOSE THE WEIGHT. You have to get to that point where you finally own up to your corpulence. Don’t blame your genes, don’t blame your mother, blame yourself.
But, what to do? How was I going to really make this work for me?
I have a good friend who is amazing healer and heard that she was experimenting with spiritual surgery to try and see if people could lose weight by working on the auric layers of the body. It did not involve any physical stimulus, no touching whatsoever. I figured, well, I may as well try it. If it doesn’t work, that’s okay. There are no side effects, no pain and it takes only about an hour of lying on her bed with your eyes closed while she gets to work on you.
At first, I felt a great energy, and a willingness to make it work for me. At the back of my mind, I kept thinking, perhaps this is a placebo effect… I began to eat tiny meals, as she had advised, but nothing budged. I did lose two pounds and then my weight went up by about five during Christmas. Sure, I was eating tiny portions…of the wrong foods. I also challenged myself to eat bigger meals and I felt awful afterwards: a sensation of having eaten too much had suddenly happened! It was magical! For the first time in my life I experienced a sensation of having had enough to eat, even though it was nowhere near what i had been able to eat before.
I received some counselling from my friend but in spite of this, I needed structure: I need to write down what I eat and to follow a diet, so i joined Weight Watchers (for the umpteenth time). I have been losing steadily – nearly 10 lbs in a month -struggling to eat the recommended number of “points” allotted to me on a daily basis.
So you may be very skeptical at this point, saying well, it’s WW. My answer is: yes, and no. At other times when I was on WW I would obsessively try and eat as much of the “free foods” (veggies and fruit) as I could to fill me up. I would chew sugar free gum to take away the urge to chew. I was hungry all the time in spite of having plenty to eat.
Now I struggle to eat as much, I feel satiated very quickly, I am no longer obsessing about getting enough to eat. My plate is no longer heaped, I have finally managed to eat normal, regular portions.
I have a long way to go, but something in me has been healed; what it is and how it was done I cannot explain. My friend told me she worked on balancing my Leptin levels because they were “all out of whack”. I am so grateful to her. It has been painless, with no side effects whatsoever!
So all you science obsessed folks, don’t knock this. I know you will but it’s my loss…and it’s working for me!
Sore throats can occur during any season of the year, and frequently herald the start of a cold, or in other cases, tonsillitis or strep throat, which is a particularly nasty strain of bacterial infection that can spread quickly through a classroom of students.
The following steps can be taken to alleviate the problem, but please consult a medical doctor if the sore throat persists beyond three days or sooner, especially if you have a small child. These few self-help strategies may be applied if your child is old enough to clearly articulate how painful the throat is. Take a peek inside the oral cavity to assess how red the throat is, and if the tonsils are swollen you can give the child a dose of Phytolacca, a remedy I have found useful for my son who often suffered from painful sore throats. Then take the child to the doctor!
Phytolacca Decandra has emotional/mind symptoms of wanting to bite, refusing to eat, irritability, unbearable pain and chilliness. The throat itself would feel dry and the tonsils swollen. The uvula is enlarged and swollen, the soft palate, likewise will be swollen and may have thick white mucus about the fauces, see image below:
There is a sensation of a lump in the throat, and the patient will have shooting pains into the ears with every attempt to swallow.
Belladonna is a tried and tested remedy for sore throats especially if they are accompanied by anger, fright, a desire to bite in children, especially during delirium. It may be accompanied by a headache and an over-sensitivity to noise and light. The patient is very restless and they may weepy and angry.
The throat will be very red, and may have a glazed appearance, the eyes are red and the ears will be very painful. The patient may have a sensation as if there is a plug in the throat and he will be unable to even drink liquids. A complete loss of appetite is not surprising, but there is an increased thirst which may not be alleviated due to the painfully sore throat. (Liquids may pass out through the nose instead of being swallowed.)
Aconite Napellus is the remedy of choice after a patient has been exposed to a cold North wind (or South wind, in the Southern Hemisphere). The sore throat comes on suddenly and will persist if it is not treated promptly. The main mental characteristic of this remedy is a fear of death. The throat will burn and there may be an accompanying pain in the back of the neck and behind the jaws. The parotid glands may be swollen.
Hepar Sulphuris Calcareum is often regarded as the “antibiotic” of homeopathy. It is a remedy that has the sensation of a fish bone or a splinter stuck in the throat. It is also characterized by great anger or vehemence. There is a great sensitivity to dry cold air, even more so than Aconite. The pain of the sore throat extends into the ears. Hepar Sulph is a remedy to use after Aconite. I recommend it in a 200 C potency and if the patient is not better after three doses, consult a doctor.
I have great faith in Olbas Oil, a eucalyptus based embrocation that I apply externally to the throat at night. I have found it really stops that sore throat in its tracks, especially if I have been outside and gotten chilled because of an icy wind blowing.
Another strategy would be to massage around the base of the big toe of both feet as well as the ears on the outside of the feet. It may be painful but persevere. You can even apply some Olbas to the area while massaging. Consult the chart below:
