Yeast will tell you the time. (eBook – The Spirit of Yeast)

“Yeast will tell you the time,” my Granddad John Waltham said to me.

He started me off a journey that hasn’t ended, a journey into understanding the magic of my own body, host to millions of these little living beings with their own spirit, choice and memory, affecting my health, my moods, my smell, my Life.

An female emanation of our Mother Earth, Yeast manages the times of our life, like the moon calls the tides.

The wrong Yeast was what the Israelites had to put aside in Egypt so they could change from slaves into conquerors. The right Yeast on a bunch of grapes told them they’d come home.

A lot has been written about the physical properties of Yeast. Good yeast is required for healthy digestion, the foundation of health in the body as we depend on receiving nutrients from food and drink. Yeast imbalance however, Candida for example is a major cause of systemic imbalance and ill effects that go far beyond any one particular disease’s name.

A quick internet search on the subject will show you just how important it is that Yeast stay balanced in our bodies.

This book will not attempt to show how with some simple changes in how we treat Yeast, we can radically change our health, metabolism and life experience for the better.

Yeast is Consciousness
Yeast as Time-Keeper
Bad Yeasts and Diabetes
The Illness Consciousness
The Passover Story: Leaving the Slave Consciousness Behind

Herbs for Overworked Brains

There are some people who never have brain burnouts; calm people who fall in the categories of low intelligence and the very intelligent. If you’re one of the lucky ones this article is not for you.

This is for those who tend to use their brains in manic ways to the point where they feel burned out, their heads literally over heated.

Brain stress and burnout isn’t caused just by overthinking. The brain can get wound up and overworked hormonally, through the effect of drugs that stimulate the glands in the brain. The brain can get over-heated dealing with the sudden demands of the body in dealing with hormonal changes like puberty, pregnancy, even changes in the temperature around us.

Spring fever, the onset of summer, the brain freeze of winter coming on quicker than usual – all these can over-work the brain.

Brain stress is also caused by compromised blood circulation such as caused a heavy meal or a sluggish liver.

Let’s get straight to it.

My Top 7 Herbs for Overworked Brains

 

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.

This is one example of the ways gut tension can affect the rest of the body.

Our entire system relies on the area around our core working properly. This core area is as densely populated with nerves and nerve endings as the brain and what happens here, second by second affects the brain and the rest of the system.

There are three major causes of gut tension and hypersensitivity – which are really the same thing – the gut being irritated and reacting in an extreme way.

1) Mild Chronic Poisoning
2) Over-eating
3) Energetic assault or Shock

1) Mild Chronic Poisoning
A lot of the time we think that if we ate something one day and the body did not react to it violently, that means it’s ok for us. It isn’t always OK. There are foods that slowly increase the levels of a poison in the gut, which deposit things in the lining of the digestive system. At one point the body starts reacting violently because the situation has reached a point where if cleaning up doesn’t happen soon enough, one or other of the organs could be seriously affected.

Digestive extremes therefore should be first dealt with by taking out of your diet everything but the simplest home cooked food. You then do gentle detoxification with foods like horseradish, fenugreek seed tea, nettle tea – just herbs and vegetables that support a clean up – nothing extreme.

2) Over-eating

Over-eating caused by anxiety and other emotional causes is something that makes people feel helpless. How do you stop when you’re in the habit for so long?

For a lot of people, one simple thing works. Nutrition. You see, nearly everyone can trace the onset of their over-eating to a time around which they either didn’t have enough food or didn’t have food that was satisfying – like food after which you feel, “Yes, now I’m full and satisfied and can get on to other things now.”

Not being satisfied nutritionally is one of the causes of anxiety and panic attacks as it makes the person prone to emotional extremes.

This results in a whole lot of other problems in the body all the way to heavy menstrual bleeding, hair loss, chronic fatigue, mental slowing and so on.

Adding a source of natural fat to the diet very often begins the process of healing.

It’s not an overnight thing, but if you sit down and think of what you really feel like having and decide to put aside what’s in your head about what you should have, and choose what your gut wants to have instead, you’ll be surprised at how you can go from unsatisfied to satisfied and how that can change your body and your life for the better.

3) Energetic assault or Shock

In our times, there is nearly always some or the other attempt to drain a human’s energy always going on.

Television and media, even books, are consciously aimed at emotional energy manipulation, trying to cause shock to get attention. This is what they now even train students of the media and communication to do.

There’s a lot of competition out there to get your attention, your emotional energy.

Now, when a body in the course of a natural life experiences shock of some kind, the system recognizes it and deals with it.

However, if the shock is not dealt with, perhaps because the person did not realize what was happening at the time, or the person was too busy mentally with some other task, then the nerves of the body and especially around the gut, clench up and don’t relax, waiting for us to resolve the issue.

This sort of shock is constantly delivered by news and other media as well as stress and trauma hormones in commonly available foods and even medicines.

I have found treating the body for recovery from shock lessens the need for treatment of other sorts as it allows the body to accept other treatment and respond well to other medicine and lifestyle healing.

Here are my 5 favorite herbs that help release gut tension and support recovery from gut shock

Increase Nerve Force with Herbs, Food & Lifestyle Changes

One of the first signs of the process commonly called ‘premature aging’, is simply a decrease in nerve force.

Nerve force, very simply is the energy with which electrical signals go from one nerve cell to another.

When we find ourselves reacting to something slowly and with tiredness it means our nerve force is less.

If we are not able to react to sensory stimulation and enjoy things, our nerve force is less.

It is literally the speed at which the communication between the parts of the body is happening.

When our nerve force is low, the nervous signals feel like they’re going at the speed of postal mail versus email.

While there are many causes of it, from lack of enough sleep to fatigue caused by repetitive stress, to emotional shock caused by loss or grief, the human body is capable of adapting to a situation and maintaining nerve force.

A lot of the time food, drink, even herbs and other holistic treatments are used to artificially increase nerve force through adrenaline shocking the body, stressing the kidneys and surging the nervous system. The body reacts with chronic fatigue as it resists what it considers artificial stimulation as not something in the body’s memory of what’s natural.

For example, one such substance is MSG or mono-sodium glutamate, which is used in nearly all processed foods for its ability to increase nerve force giving a sort of quick but short-lived energy surge making the person eating become suddenly able to taste better. It increases nerve force so the report from the sense organs goes quickly to the brain and the brain says, “Yes, it’s yummy.” If you’ve ever craved eating something processed or that’s not cooked at home, chances are you’re craving MSG. But its list of harmful effects are legendary.

There are other additives to increase nerve force that are used in the processed food industry.

They all backfire sooner or later as the body learns to resist even them. Chronic allergies, histamine intolerance and auto-immune disorders are just some of the ways the body resists the intrusion.

The way to increase nerve force without pissing off the body and triggering off resistance, is to be nice and work with the body and the psyche, in ways considered friendly rather than forcing.

Positive and Negative Polarity – Holistic Recovery with Herbs from Radiotherapy and Radiation Damage

A time comes to every person who takes herbs and natural healing when they have to stop depending on herbs and cross over to being independently healthy again. Very few ever cross that line, and their body ends up developing resistance to the very herbs that are their medicine of choice.

Herbs to stimulate healing, detoxification and so on, are of the positive polarity, or solar, heating, pushing, moving. They include all those processes that are outgoing and heat generating and expanding and energy releasing. Cell growth, cell reproduction, regeneration of damaged tissue, they’re all positive or solar processes.

There are herbs that support the negative polarity or the lunar processes of the body, cooling, contracting and energy retaining.

These have to be taken at just the right time, to help bring the body into balance, into neutral, and then lessened to a point where you don’t need anything but your food and your water to keep healthy.

Just as the heart sends out blood to the entire body, so the heart receives blood from the entire body. It’s something that is happening in every part of us all the time.

Radiation is everywhere in our modern lifestyles, even if you don’t actually go through a radiotherapy session. It is experienced in mild ways across Australia, where I was told by a man who installed cable antennas, you won’t be covered by insurance for skin cancer if you don’t wear a hat when working outdoors. Radiation is delivered by microwaves, is in food that is irradiated to prevent it from spoiling, is generated by mobile phones, and any other number of radiation delivery devices.

Now radiation, simply over-stimulates the cells into the positive polarity causing the cell to release its stored energy, with which it was supposed to live long and reproduce into other cells before it died. When it suddenly releases all its stored energy, it burns out and dies, or goes weak.

This kills cells by making them overwork and get over-heated and, just like food gets heated up and if longer, burned, in the microwave.

This is one reason, radiotherapy is part of current medical treatment of cancer. Technically speaking, it should kill off just the bad boy cells and let the good boy cells be. In practical experience however, that is almost never what happens. Usually the good boys and girls end up weak and susceptible now to even more problems, and those far more widespread than before.

One reason herbal medicine for recovery from radiotherapy works so well is because herbs with high levels of natural energy (note: not all herbs are made alike) quickly supply the body with vital energy so the good boys and girls can keep going until they start functioning again and get back to collecting up energy for their life functions.

But this is where the bridge is. Ask anyone into natural living and they’ll tell you that a time comes when the herbs don’t ‘work’ like they did before.

The body balances out everything, even herbs. After a certain crisis has been crossed, the body will start treating the same herb it treated like gold during the crisis, now like any other food, passing out most of it. The body thinks, “I’m getting so much of it regularly, no point storing it around, let’s store the rarer stuff, this one’s always available.”

So that’s what’s happening on this side of the bridge. You can cross over the bridge now, to the other side, where the cells are all making their own energy like before, where the body is well like before, through one simple thing – energy balancing your cells, so they’re no longer in the state the radiation put them in – which was over-stimulated.

The herbs which help the body recover from over-stimulated, support the negative polarity in the body, or the ‘lunar’ processes.

These herbs don’t work aggressively, their whole benefit is that they are NOT aggressive. Many of these herbs have little white or yellow flowers, and grow as weeds. Most of them make you thirsty – think lunar, think moon, think water – because they help detoxify the body through the water networks of the body.

A few of the Negative Polarity or Lunar herbs that come to mind right now are:

Herbs to Strengthen the Heart, Build Emotional Resilience

When you strengthen the heart, you strengthen every part of you and find relief from problems that were not responding before.

To strengthen a weak or tired heart, on every level, herbs can help. They’re living beings like us. They open our sub-conscious tunnels and caves and cupboards, awaken deep things in us and help us see and hear what we need to to find our way.

When the physical heart is weak or unstable, it is a clarion call from our consciousness to repair ourselves from deep deep within.

Borage for disappointment with no silver linings
Cactus for nervous instability, recovery from shock
Damiana for uterine, sexual and reproductive system blocks
Violet for lymphatic sluggishness
Milk Thistle for congestion in the body such as after a large meal
Dandelion for tightness around the diaphragm, solar plexus
Mistletoe for when you’re too cold or too hot
Rose Petals and Rosehips to release blocked up energy

Holistic Rejuvenation of Heart, Blood and Bone Marrow Function

One of the body’s most common responses to hidden or suppressed trauma is a steady decline in the quality of blood cells being made.

This is why people ‘age’ suddenly when they have a tragedy or loss that ‘takes the life’ out of them.

This situation can also be caused by actual loss of physical blood, starvation and deprivation over a long period of time (especially in the case of women) and various emotional situations.

The most common cause however is the person doesn’t WANT to live anymore if that’s the way life is. A fall in blood quality and quantity is very simply the life energy withdrawing and the body and psyche being in a state of waiting for something to make the person want to live again.

Nearly every person I’ve ever made medicine for who has had the combination of anemia, fatigue, lessened hair quality or hair loss, lessened bone strength, has been able to remember an event or string of events through which they lost their zest for life.

Intelligent Detox – Herbs that raise body intelligence

If your detoxification programs haven’t been working well enough, and if you have nutritional deficiencies even though you eat healthy enough, you need to remind your body to get back to sifting things properly.

The intelligence of herbs is amazing. They are living beings not dead chemicals. When we have whole herbs who have not been processed in a way that destroys their subtle energies, the herbs get into our bodies and teach the parts of us that are tired or have forgotten how to do things, how to do them efficiently again.

A very important aspect of detoxification and keeping clean on a regular basis, is for our bodies to know what to keep and what to throw out.

The usual herbs for detoxification, laxatives, and urinary stimulators, need the body to keep what’s needed instead of throwing the baby out with the bath water. To do so, would be to cause a whole new set of problems where the body is chronically energy deficient and lacking in important minerals.

Tumors, various skin problems, these are among so many others the result of the body not knowing what to keep and what to let go of.

Very often a person who needs help in this area is also feeling overwhelmed by life, and at a loss to sift through what is valuable and what to let go of or forget about. The same herbs work on all levels to help the body and soul together.

Here are some of my favorite herbs with the intelligence that they lend us to help sift efficiently >

Holistic Healing of the Voice

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 noticed all the things affecting our voices, and very little was about catching a cold.

At one point in my life trauma made me unable to sing for years.

I found out that heart trouble and voice trouble go together.

To heal our voice, means to give our soul wings again.

To give our soul wings again, we need to get to the point where we feel we are beautiful again.

That important thing being said, while we’re waiting for that to happen, here are:

Three things to heal the Voice holistically

Hormones don’t make Feelings. Feelings make Hormones.

The Heart triggers off hormone production in the body. It’s the truth we’re not told because it would end the pharma industry that sells artificial and second hand hormones and hormone triggers.

If you’re serious about natural hormonal balance, the way is through the heart.

Here are 5 things about Hormones and the Heart you need to know:

1. Hormones don’t make feelings. Feelings make hormones.
2. The Heart frequency is the Earth frequency, is the Reality frequency.
3. Hormones produced by the Heart trigger off hormone production in the body. Make your own home food.
4) Your Body is your Heart. An exercise to release pain.
5) Steer clear of a pseudo heart frequency.

1. Hormones don’t make feelings. Feelings make hormones, and hormones make the body respond to those emotions with certain reactions.

A disruption in the translation from feelings to hormones causes depression. The person feels things but cannot translate them into mental realization and physical response which is the completion of the cycle.

The most common reason for this disruption is emotional suppression. If you don’t let yourself feel what you’re feeling, you’ll not allow the cycle of hormones to go fully through you.

Hormones don’t make Feelings. Feelings make Hormones.
