I’ve written about this before and I’m sure I will again, at the risk of repeating myself, how on earth did we end up living in a world based on money and greed, where the few dictate to the many. I speak to people in distress on the phone every week, and there is so much of that suffering that could quite possibly be alleviated by some extremely simple remedies. Not just cancer but that is of course one of the biggies, I doubt there is anyone in the western world that has not had some kind of experience with cancer, if not themselves then family or friends.
There are many alternative therapies but the one that I am focusing on right now is orthomolecular medicine, it uses extremely high doses of vitamins to treat a range of issues. Andrew Saul PhD who you can hear speak on the Food Matters dvd, says that the first doctor to use vitamin c in this way in the 1940’s had great success with a huge range of diseases, yet his work was ignored by the medical community at large. Check out this article by Andrew on the Food Matters web site, there is also a video of a mainstream news report on the subject, seems the word is finally getting out there: http://foodmatters.tv/articles-1/did-you-know-that-vitamin-c-can-treat-over-30-major-diseases And here is another news report saying much the same thing: http://www.nextworldtv.com/page/23929.html
Maybe it doesn’t work with all types of cancer, but surely it makes sense to try something that actually targets the cancer cells, unlike chemotherapy which destroys everything in its path. There is no doubt that nutritional deficiencies are at the root of much of the diseases that afflict modern society, doctors actually need to be taught this as it does not currently feature much in their curriculum. I probably know more about the subject than a lot of medical practitioners, and I am so not technically minded!
But if you are in a place where you are not sick, then do consider how you might supplement your diet, you know the old saying, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Since I’ve been having omega 3’s in my diet every day I’ve noticed that I don’t feel the cold as much as I used to, my feet used to get cold easily and it would be hard to warm them up again, but that just isn’t the case anymore.
Lets transform ourselves into glowing vibrant and healthy individuals, and as we do that we can transform the world, time for our environment to fulfill its potential, inner and outer!

There is a lot of talk these days about getting enough of the good oils, in particular omega 3’s, a common source of this fat is of course fish. The only problem with this is that the disregard for sustainability that can be seen in corporations and governments around the world, extends into our oceans as well. If getting enough fish in our diet means that the ocean will be completely fished out by 2048, then a responsible person might just want to find other sources of omega 3’s.
Chia seeds: a rich source of omega 3’s.
Once again we have an example of vested interests who only care about making money, destroying our resources without any thought for the future. Since 1950 we have lost 90% of large fish from the sea, boats with HUGE nets trawl the oceans taking everything in their path, throwing away the bits that are of no use to them. It’s a far cry from the habits of indigenous people who generally take only what they need, with respect, leaving enough behind that the resources will continue to be there for future generations.
Western culture claims to operate on rational principles, does what I have described here make any sense to you? It certainly doesn’t to me, how can politicians keep taking money and favours from the lobby groups and still look their children in the eyes, knowing that their actions are changing the world forever, and not for the best of all humankind.
The separation of the heart and the head is the source of much of this insanity in my opinion, without the heart’s wisdom the head cannot really truly understand the consequences of its decisions. That’s what needs to happen in the inner realms of the future human, a coming together of the mind and the heart, an evolution into coherence. And of course there is also direct action, the Black Fish is a protest vessel that will be focusing on the Mediterranean Sea over the next year, where fishing regulations are routinely ignored, they will endeavour to expose and challenge these practices. To find out more check out this animated film below:
Year 2048: NONE of the fish left in the sea that we’re currently eating?
That is the dire warning in this captivating animated short about the overfishing of our seas.
A beautifully produced cartoon on a subject that couldn’t be more serious:

You know how the times when we are the busiest, the most stressed, are often when our self-care tends to fall apart. I remember having that discussion with a flat mate who was a doctor many years ago, as we drank coke and devoured chocolate bars. In those days I would make guacamole and have it with corn chips when I didn’t feel like cooking, which was often.
I do try not to create impossible schedules for myself and to take time out, but sometimes life takes you by the scruff of the neck and throws you in at the deep end. It’s sink or swim and if you’ve taken the time to have swimming lessons, the chances of drowning are much reduced.
The trick is to create healthy habits, so that when you go onto automatic pilot you find yourself reaching for food that’s alive. My green smoothie is the highlight of my day every day, as I keep refining it the life in it just gets juicier. I’m adding chia seeds to it now which are a fabulous source of protein and omega 3’s, apparently the Aztec messengers used to run for miles using chia seeds to power them up.
Speaking of running, exercise is another important support for our faithful and wondrous bodies, I could probably do with some more cardio as a habit, but I have trouble going through a day without some stretching. I LOVE my two hour yoga class every week, it supports me physically, mentally and spiritually. In my recent time as a carer for five dogs there were days when I literally didn’t have time to stretch and the results were not pretty I can tell you.
There will continue to be challenges, I was foolish enough this evening to eat some ice cream with nuts in it and mistakenly bit into a nut with my dodgy front teeth, three of them on a bridge so if they fall out again I am missing three front teeth. This is very disconcerting I have to tell you, dentistry is not cheap in this country and to get implants is insanely expensive!
I am going to breathe into it and tone before I go to bed, hoping like hell that I wake up with my full and beautiful smile looking back at me in the mirror. I need a miracle here my friends, pray for me and I will call on all the Gods and Goddesses to help me manifest something amazing!
