Remember: inflammation, when not gone awry, helps the body heal. Everything has it’s place and time.
Some people need to quit drinking coffee. Others need to start drinking it. Oh, hell, yeah. One person’s poison is another person’s medicine
After a decade of not drinking coffee (because I really had to quit!) it is once again medicine. So lovely. My life is filled with paradox.
It’s helping with neuro-inflammation in ways that are simply magical. And yes, there was a time when quitting was critically important too. I no longer fear over-use either. Healing addiction is also part of healing. Developing such discernment about when to use/not use substances has been critical on my healing path
my brain goes through cycles as I detox heavy metal and various infections out of my system…the brain feels most impacted…
intense and pretty much entirely unknown in western medicine…these are the cycles I’m going thru while targeting metals, bacteria, virus & fungi.
- Gut bugs and healing diets: prescription for profound healing
- Detoxification (which is really about balancing the internal ecosystem): healthy living for body/mind/spirit
A letter to a friend and to the doctor he referred me to via email is below….(I don’t generally do doctors, but I got 23andMe results and wanted to talk to someone who knows something about genetics…it was just going to be a consult…I don’t do treatment by others and I know that genes are not determinative in any case. The raw data, however, is helpful to the intuitive process that is not attached to that which is widely believed about genetics or anything at all)
Dear friend and the doctor person I was referred to,
I called the office and tried to set up an appointment. Then I discovered that your fee is $395 for one hour.
I have worked for the last decade with folks who have injuries like mine. Because there is no one out there helping us, I’ve worked voluntarily with 1000s of people all over the world.
People are in desperate need of care…all over the world. So much suffering. I find your fee incredibly disturbing and sad. Really I find it sickening and it makes me angry too.
Friend, you know my situation. That I give to thousands and have no income. I had to say something.
take care. Both of you. I hope that we all find ways to love one another and help humanity and the planet heal.
with much love,
- Collection of letters to doctors etc… (I never stop being amazed by some of what goes on in the name of medicine)
And lastly, The Birds singing Ecclesiastes.
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
