That is meditation. Focused attention. So, my experience of chronic illness: Chronic illness is the body saying no to the toxic […]
…. So with that preamble, I’m sharing some tweets. I still share this info but I do it in a crowd of people who largely have never thought about these things. In other words, I no longer cater to the choir. I think we need people everywhere and introducing these ideas to folks who’ve not considered them is also important. ~~ The stories of the drug injured matter. We are buried beneath a pile of pharmaceutical propaganda. The human species actually needs us sensitives. Wake up the rest of you!

Any help will continue to be much appreciated. ***and now some regularly scheduled odds and ends for your perusal:

All there is, is nature. To nature I surrender. *** Sometimes being overwhelmed is the only way through. *** We’re all profoundly unique and complex and it’s really, just the lack of understanding that fact alone, that makes western medicine so dangerous for the sensitive among us.
