Nature's Remedies - Gall Bladder Flush

A few weeks ago I was relaxing after a long day, minding my own business when I had a gall bladder attack.  My side and back ached and felt like it was on fire, my right arm and hand hurt, my left knee ached, my right jaw hurt like someone had punched me and my right elbow ached.  All of this from a tiny little gall bladder attack.

On to the cabinet for the Gall Bladder Formula that I always keep on hand just for this moment.  I took about 8 capsules and the event died down.  I was able to sleep until about 2 a.m. when another wave hit me.  Once again, the herbs from the GB formula calmed it all down.  The herbs in this wonderful formula stop the spasms and the cramping and include Oregon Grape Root, Ginger, Cramp Bark, Fennel seeds, Peppermint Leaves, Wild Yam Root and Catnip leaves.

Wonderful that these all come in one capsule and I don't have to keep the herbs on hand to make the formula.  The Federal Government is in the process of taking our rights to all of these natural remedies away from us in the interest of the pharmaceutical companies who want all of us on drugs so the stocks make them more money.

But for now the capsules are on hand and I was able to make it to the next morning when I began the gall bladder flush recommended by Hulda Clark.  I've been doing the flush for about 10 years now and each time the stones that come out of the gall bladder number in the 100's but it works and I don't have to worry about surgery. 

The Gall Bladder Flush can be a one to three day flush.  Just fast on fruit all day, apples, applesauce, pears, peaches, any kind of fruit.  Then at night mix 4 ozs. of fresh lemon juice and 4 ozs. of pure (not blended) olive oil together and drink it down.  Then lie on your right side for about 20 minutes while the olive oil moves through the gall bladder.  Then sleep however you like for the rest of the night.  The stones come out in the toilet in the morning and look like green peas, generally.  Flush ended.  All is well until you need another cleanse.

Dichotomy of Worlds

"I am always doing things I cannot do - that's how I get to do them!" Pablo Picasso

Saw this quote on Emma Eker's twitter and loved it so I wanted to share it.

I'm feeling restless and think that it must be Spring moving in my blood.  I'm being challenged these days and a few days ago I felt I was losing control so I took a Bach Flower remedy to get over the feeling and now I'm back to normal.  Funny how flower essences can bring you back from the edge in seconds.   

Life has been good and I give great appreciation for all of my experiences.  This lifetime has been about healing body, mind, spirit and emotions as well as relationships.  The term "healer, heal thyself" has applied to everything and I believe the dichotomy of worlds moving along in time/space continuum has application here.  What I mean by that is that while Western Medicine grows powerful through the media and grants and money, there is a mindfulness growing along side it that speaks of natural healing and how effective it is, although not being allowed into media unless it is through the pharmaceutical companies.  How many ads do you see about natural products on television that are not regulated or owned by the drug companies?   Ever wonder why?  Could it be that the drug companies are losing out on a lot of money?  Something to consider.

What drew my attention to the control that the media has over us became apparent one morning.  A friend called to make me aware of a news show where mutual interests would be highlighted.  I tuned into the show only to be disappointed when, at the moment the man was going to speak of Iridology and how it was used, the broadcast went to a 20 second commercial.  When the commercial ended the scene went to the people in the newsroom, all looking like deer in the headlights.  All evidence of the natural healer and his Iridology charts had disappeared.  Someone didn't want you or me to know about Iridology.  I wrote a letter expressing my outrage to the news show.

Before our eyes, literally, the natural ways are being erased from the consciousness of the people who appear to pay no attention and give it no mind except for a few who are aware of what is happening.  Yet, often people call or write expressing a desire to learn more about natural healing because they are aware that drugs aren't what are needed.  They want to know how to go about healing naturally but feel overwhelmed at the amount of information needed for that to happen.

For that purpose I have begun to teach natural health and healing in a fun and relaxed atmosphere through what I call "Learning Spa" days or events.  Through a Learning Spa you can learn about natural ways to treat common colds, flu, aches, pains, infections, etc., with natural essences, oils, massage, Reflexology.  Amazing how many natural remedies are in our possession that we don't know about. 

The thing is, you don't have to have a prescription for every malady that crosses your path.  The only reason you are sick is because you think you have to be a victim of a virus/bacteria/fungus/parasite.  In my early years as a student of natural health, I thought I had to be sick, too.  Then something told me I didn't have to be sick and I gave myself permisson to take more control of my own health.  If you knew that there was something that would give you more power over a cold or a flu than you think you have and that you could exert that power over that virus in an instant, saving you down time, time out of work and time out of your daily lives, would you want to have that information and take more control?  It's up to you.  The only reason you are sick is because you don't know how not to be.

Silent Nights

People have been talking about it for years and now we’re seeing the effects of not living in harmony with the earth. The biggest events of the millennium have already happened and are happening and we sit here helpless as we watch the effects of our actions destroying life in and around water, along with the water itself.

What’s it going to take to stop the madness?

The other ‘event’ taking place is Monsanto’s assault on the food supply. Crossing DNA of insects and fish with the DNA of plants; something called GMO. Genetically Modified Organisms.

A few years ago I had a “Bug” company come to spray around the house for ants. The big black ants that are the same as having termites. The ants rained down out of the garage, dead. Problem fixed. We kept the “Bug” company for a few years. They would come to spray twice a year and we didn’t think much about it or how it would affect the area around us. A few years passed and then one night, instead of the cacophony of night sounds that lull me to sleep, there was complete and total silence. No insects humming. No frogs croaking. Complete silence.

I just about went crazy. I live for the summer night sounds.

I ‘journeyed’ to find out what had happened to my beloved frogs. When I entered their domain in the other world the frogs had their backs to me. I was desperate and filled with sorrow. I couldn’t imagine what I had done to make the frogs so angry. I poured out my heart to them and told them I was so sorry for hurting them. I love the sounds of the frogs all around. I am never happier than in the Spring when I first hear the awakening of nature and the rebirth of the mother after the long winter.

As I spoke to them, one by one, the frogs began to face me and then they were all around me and then they were all over me. I thought they would never forgive me, but they did. Relief and joy filled me. I waited for them to come back immediately but it actually took about 2 years for them to repopulate the area around my house. Now the night sounds are back and all is as it should be. The frogs and all the other insects and creatures are safe and happy and sing their joy. At night I am once again carried into journeying by the voices of the natural world.

So no matter what, I won’t spray deadly poison around the house outside or the grass for fear of driving the frogs out of my life again, or the crickets and don’t forget the bees. People wonder what has happened to the bees. They are the first sign of a world out of balance. I’ve been seeing more and more bees the last few years and I intend to keep it that way.

I’ll find more natural methods to deal with home invasions of insects and keep my area free of deadly chemicals that eradicate the natural world. I am not helpless. I am discerning. I make choices that make a difference.

My First Love

The best thing I remember about Jack, my first love, was how he smiled at me. Not only was he the handsomest guy in school, he was smart. When he smiled at me his face would light up and his eyes would shine as though he was looking at the most special person on the planet. I felt special when Jack smiled at me. His smiles made me smile and when I was smiling I was very happy.

On mornings when there was no school, Jack would look for me out his window. He lived next door to me and at night we would find each other in the bedroom window and say long-distance ‘good-nights’ to one another. When he would see me come outdoors he would hasten to walk with me and make sure that I wouldn’t step in the muddy puddles left from the rain. If he saw one he would guide me around the puddle so I wouldn’t get my shoes wet. If there were other obstacles in the way he would run and take them off the walk for me.

Jack never hesitated to tell me how much he liked me. He was sincere and very trustworthy. Never once did I catch him looking at other girls. If I was around, Jack was always with me and very attentive. He held my hand and wouldn’t sit before I did. He was quite the gentleman!

At school, Jack would always find me and ask me to sit with him at lunch. He would always make sure there were extra napkins and a clean table at which to eat. He would always share what he had with me and I with him.

I just loved Jack. We got along so well. We never argued about anything that wasn’t important. He could be a rascal at times and tease me, but not incessantly or in a mean way. He and I were a pair and everyone knew that Jack was in love with me and I with him. Our first kiss was so sweet, and for me, quite unexpected! Jack leaned in to what I thought was a whisper, but instead, he kissed me real quick on the cheek. I turned all red and didn’t even know why!

It broke my heart when Jack moved to Florida with his family. He didn’t know how to tell me at first and then one day he just came out and said he was moving away. There was great sadness that day for both of us. When Jack moved away shortly thereafter I never felt so alone. That whole year I thought of Jack and how much I missed him.

For awhile I thought I’d never get over Jack leaving and how I could get to Florida to be with him once again. I talked to my mother about it but she couldn’t see any way that I could be with Jack again. At least not for awhile. But she said that someone else would probably come along and she was right.

In my second year of school I met Damian. He was the handsomest guy at school and he was really smart. We were both 6 years old and he was crazy about me. I loved Damian, but I would never forget that Jack had been my first love.

Most Popular Sayings

Have so much to do today just don't know where to begin.  Make a list and check it off.  Things get done with lists.  No matter what, always take time to read or listen to something that is inspirational.  Only takes about 10 minutes to do and you have a quick pick me up if you need it.

Recently, I purchased a book from Borders called "The 2,548 Best Things Anybody Ever Said", selected and compiled by Robert Byrne.  Of course it is a matter of opinion of who said what best.  But a lot of the sayings are entertaining, at best.  Here are a few sayings from the book, perhaps you would like to judge for yourself if they're the best things anybody has ever said.

"I never did give anybody hell.  I just told the truth and they thought it was hell"  Harry S. Truman

"Show me a sane man and I will cure him for you"  C. G. Jung

"Never go to a doctor whose office plants have died"  Erma Bombeck

"I'm so miserable without you, it's almost like having you here" Stephen Bishop song title

"I base my fashion taste on what doesn't itch"  Gilda Radner


"The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his"
                                                                                                                       General George Patton

Well, there you have it.  Some of the "best things anybody ever said". 

Perhaps the book title should read, "most popular" in the title.

Oh, well.  I guess some of them are really funny and they deal so well with life.  I come from a different ilk when I think of the best that anyone has ever said.  I like to hear what Grandmother Pa'Ris'Ha says (one of my favorites is "If you're going to be a bitch, be the best bitch you can be") and the Dalai Lama: (one of my favorites is: Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly) and Padmasambhava the Lotus Born Buddha because they inspire and make me want to be a better person and do more with life.

Maybe I should write a book.

Inter-Terrestrial Visit

Many years ago while at an intensive with Grandmother Pa'Ris'Ha in N. Carolina she introduced us to an 'other-worldly' place.  We went to this place as a group and it was very real walking along the dark pathway lined with foliage and mist.  We all got to the destination and Grandmother let us explore and go our own way until the time that she called us back.

My path took me to what looked like a large underground cavern filled with shrouds of billowing dark, feather-light material that moved with the wind currents.  Among these curtains stood two very tall, very slender, fully covered to the floor by thin capes, 'beings' - the likes of which I had never seen before.  When I looked up into their faces all I could see were the huge almond shaped eyes and my own reflection looking back at me through them.

These beautiful beings were very loving and gentle.  They greeted me with a 'welcome' and then took me in behind the billowing, flowing curtains and bade me rest.  I don't remember any more than that except that I went totally blank, thinking and remembering nothing.  When I awoke I felt different, more refreshed.  On the return trip, I noticed that these beings floated beside me as I walked back to the place we met, and they never spoke, but communicated to me through their thoughts that I was invited back anytime I felt I needed to be rejuvenated.

I walked along the pathway intent on finding my way out and back to the group when I felt myself pulling someone or something as my arm stretched out behind me.  I had no idea why I had picked up this extra baggage nor what it was until I looked behind me and saw one of the people who was in our group.  I was literally dragging her out of this place!  She was not looking at me - she was looking behind her and reaching out to some unseen force beyond my sight, while she appeared to be totally unaware of me.

Still, I felt the pull as I hauled her out of there, all the while thinking she would be lost if I were to let go.

Later, when we were walking along the beach to go back to our hotel, I caught up to her and asked her what had happened to her down there.  She was wide-eyed in her response.  "I saw my brother down there and I wasn't leaving!"  I asked her if she knew how she had gotten out of there and she said she didn't have any idea.

Until that moment I wasn't sure that my experience with these Inter-Terrestrial beings was real.  Many years later I once again thought of them and in need of rejuvenation of mind, body, spirit and emotions I revisited that long ago place and found the IT 'beings' once again.  I spent the whole night in their care and awoke with a rejuvenated spirit, zest for life and something else which I haven't as yet identified.  I'll update you when I find out what it is.

Many years ago while taking a college psych course, the instructor asked that we think about ourselves and write down three sentences that describe who we thought we were, then asked everyone to tell what we had written.
I had written down something I'd read many years ago, because it described hu-man so well.
The three things were:
I am all that I have ever been
I am all that I can be
I am - becoming

When I decided to manifest a different lifestyle I was in my forties.  I had been in secretarial work since I was 17 years of age.  I knew that I was no longer anyone's secretary because I needed my own secretary.  Clearly, I had grown.  So, while working full time I decided I would go back to school for massage therapy training.  When I let it be known what I wanted to do, suddenly my world was full of opposition. 

"You won't make any money"
"Stay in your job, it's safer"
"What will you do for health benefits?"
"You'll never use it"
Were just a few of the comments that came at me from different sources, including my dad who had worked hard all his life.  I knew he meant well, and that he wanted what was best for me, but he had never stepped outside of a 'job' and into his own creativity.

I remember just looking at the people that directed their negative comments at me, knowing I would rise above it all because I absolutely and with intent and focus knew that I wanted to change my life.  There was absolutely no one that could stop me from doing what I wanted at this point in my life.  And, indeed, no one would.

So I began school, which, after graduating high school and some college courses, nothing serious, was quite a challenge.  Most days I remember thinking one thing in particular, "WTF am I doing here!!!???

But nothing would change my resolve.  I gave up a social life of any kind for two years and poured over physiology and anatomy books.  No more working for anyone else.  No one telling me my job may not be there next year.  No one telling me I had to punch a time clock.  No one telling me when I could have a vacation.  No one telling me how much money I could make.  I only looked at the end result.

I remember Grandmother Pa'Ris'Ha saying that no one could put a worth on anyone else's life.  If a person wanted to ask for a certain amount of money for themselves, how could anyone say they weren't worth that much? 

I wanted to set my own hourly rate and decide my own worth.  A person's self-worth depends on how big their thoughts are or can become.  My self-worth thoughts took time to grow but they are definitely growing.

After graduating massage school I wrote an article that appeared in the local paper and immediately had 30 people every week for months on end.  Talk about manifestation!  I quit my day job and immediately opened shop and have had a wealth of clientele ever since.  I had found my calling.  My life changed.  I intently focused what I wanted and got it.  Yayyyy!

Now my thoughts are that I want a whole lot of money but don't want to work hard for it.  I do believe I'm growing once again and age can't be a factor in growth.  As Rumi says, "Lovers don't finally meet somewhere, they exist in each other all along".  Well, if lovers exist within each other, then certainly good fortune and wealth exist in us all along, also. 

I'm counting on it.  I intend it.  I expect it to be so.  And so it is.
