9 Healthy Cures For Cancer - Why Doctors Cannot Use Them
Andrew Wilding

There are thousands of independent case studies published by highly qualified medical doctors and cancer researches, proving that cancer is cured by healing the body. In some cases surgery is an option, but the body does not work so well when things are removed. In all cases, radiation and chemotherapy cause cancer through actual and chemical radiation. The astounding question is: why are doctors not allowed to use the cures that heal cancer?


 
A Balanced Look At Ageing
Dr. John Demartini

"I want to grow old without facelifts... I want to have the courage to be loyal to the face I've made. Sometimes I think it would be easier to avoid old age, to die young, but then you'd never complete your life, would you? You'd never wholly know you." Marilyn Monroe

Sarah-Jane farrell

4 steps to move from what if? to I am doing this easily. A diamond is formed under intense pressure and heat to transmute in to a clear, sparkling gem of high value. It reminds me that just like a diamond those moments of intense pressure and heat that express in human beingness as force, anger and physical challenges are part of our evolution to get clear on our unique diamond genius zone so we can do the work and shine in the world for others to choose to live in their true nature! I want to share some of the ways we moved together in to more space and adventure of the unknown and how to embrace it rather than shut down your DESIRE for more of what you want. When you follow your intuitive knowing and have patience and kindness with yourself, everything can change so that you get to live engaged, present and on fire.

Penni du Plessis

Could Candinda Be The Culprit For A Myriad Of Health Problems?
Stuart Wilson

Candida growth is usually kept under control by the immune system and the “good bugs” in the large intestine. When not controlled effectively, resulting infestation leads to a condition known as candidiasis – an overgrowth of Candida Albicans, impossible for a normal immune system to eradicate. It can produce a sufficient quantity of toxins to chronically poison the host individual.

Dr Hulda Clark Herbal Parasite Program
Herba Farmacy

In her book The cure for all diseases Dr Clark makes many references to the role that parasites play in the generation of disease. She claims that because of the solvent exposure we are having in the 21st century and more specifically in the past 50 years that we now have what she calls a "new generation of disease". She calls this "fluke disease" and documents the correlation between the unprecedented migration and replication of flukes in the system with a number of "new diseases" notably cancer, AIDS, endometriosis, Lupus, Hodgkin, Alzheimer's, Diabetes, Seizures, Migraines, Depression etc.


 
Energy Healing - Luxury Or Necessity?
Tracy White

What happens when people neglect their energy hygene? This is a graphic description of why energy healing is an absolute necessity, and anyone who has the money to buy alcohol or cigarettes, or who can afford to go to gym, or any form of entertainment, can certainly afford to tend to their energetic health. To ignore the part of ourselves which is a permanent atribute and one which we cannot live with out is irresponsible.

How To Choose The Right Retreat For You
Bennie Naude

The Rat Race is a term used to describe a frustrating and often overwhelming lifestyle, seemingly impossible to break out of. What's even more fascinating about the rate race is that it has become so much the norm that most people are totally oblivious that they're right in it. Do you also live from weekend to weekend or holiday to holiday and hope that someday things will get better?

Sarah-jane Farrell

4 physical ways to support your gall bladder and liver so that you have the courage and confidence to start your year off in your brilliance and be able to consistently meet your targets. Many of you know I love working with the medicine wheel and the 5 elements in chinese medicine. I always stock up on gall bladder tonics in January for my clients, to keep the gall bladder strong.

The yin/yang aspect of liver/gall bladder - both governed by the wood element. This is the year of the Wood sheep so if we are to gather the energy, the vital life force with adaptability and flexibility the liver/ gall bladder communications need to be at their optimum to make this easier for you.

Hrt And Osteoporosis
John R. Lee, M.D. and Virginia Hopkins

There is a misperception that osteoporosis begins at menopause. In reality, bone mass begins declining in most women in their mid-thirties, accelerates for 3-5 years around the time of menopause, and then continues to decline at the rate of about 1-1.5% per year.


 
Ignorant Is Sometimes Bliss
Dr Debbie Smith

When we are told certain things by an authority figure, we tend to incorporate that as part of our belief system, particularly if we are vulnerable, not feeling well and in excruciating pain, and we base our healing on that often erroneous belief. After nine months my surgeon said that no more improvement was possible, as if that was that. After those nine months of relentless effort, I was inclined to believe him.


 
Lets Go On A Little Flight Of Fancy
Michelle McClunan

Spring 2015 has been ushered in by a full moon in Pisces, which sets the tone for most of the month of September. 
Madame de la Luna is not only in boundless Pisces, but she is also dancing cheek to cheek with Neptune, the ruler of Pisces and the sea, making her even more oceanic, more imaginative, more dreamy than usual.
And then there's our masculine force, the Sun in pragmatic, earthy, clever Virgo, accompanied by Jupiter, which serves to expand his Virgo-ness. Imagine an old fashioned dance floor, where it was still customary for men to cross over to the other side and ask a woman to dance. Yes it was in this century all you young ones!
Lets go on a little flight of fancy - Pisces loves that !

Menopause And Cosmetics
Body and Mind

Great care must be given to the protection of the endocrine system’s integrity. Ingredients MUST be bio-identical to what the body knows.Modern anti-aging medicine recognises the value of the endocrine system in maintaining essential body functions. In conjunction with the endocrine system, the skin is there to protect our major organs, maintain the correct body temperature as well as assist with excretory functions. Both systems reflect internal disorders, as the skin on a metaphysical level is also a printout of what is happening internally.


 
Menopause Is Not A Deficiency Disease
Sally Longden

Contemporary medicine views menopause as a “deficiency of oestrogen” disease, but Nature did not made a mistake.  The hormones most lacking at this stage of life is Progesterone which plummets during pre-menopause, throwing us into "oestrogen dominance" with all it's nasty symptoms.

Observational Study On Premular - Part 1
Dr. med. Roger Eltbogen

Shiatsu Massage In Gynaecology - Combining Massage And Herbal Treatments
Leon Potgieter

Although their manifestations appear in the reproductive organs, gynaecological disorders are closely related to the whole constitution, particularly the emotions. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, great importance is placed on considering all aspects of a person in diagnosis and treatment. TCM emphasizes the role emotions play in gynaecological health and pathology, stating that emotional disturbances are a major disease cause in gynaecology.


 
Shiatsu Massage Treatment Of Pms And Menopause
Leon Potgieter

Premenstrual syndrome is a western view of a common gynaecological problem. Syndrome means it is a group of signs and symptoms which typically occur together but for which there is no satisfactory explanation or known cause. However, TCM not only recognizes this group of symptoms as a particular pattern of energy imbalance called liver energy stagnation, but also defines an aetiology for it, namely emotional stress as well as a treatment based on meridian theory.

Why Treat The Skin On Your Face Different To The Skin On Your Body

You Will Never Be Original
Sarah-Jane Farrell

What if "Originality" is a paradox. If we have any hope of being original, we must first give up any hope of being original. I believe ( my interesting point of view) is that this is one of those things that we accept at face value, but insist on running round like crazed professors all the same scrambling to figure out what makes us unequivocally different from everyone else. We think we'll find our 'originality' in our brands - as if there is some kind of magic formula that exists out there somewhere, that will make us appear revolutionary even if really, we know we're not. This is fuel for the 'I'm not expert enough' curse. We know, deep down, that our ideas aren't really all that original. We know that what we have to say has been said before. We know that there are already other people out there sharing OUR message  and doing it ten times better, with ten times a bigger audience. It feels like a pretty hopeless situation.
