(A collection of posts to keep it all in one place for you.)
I often get asked about PROBIOTICS and should we use them?
Most people think that probiotics are necessary for gut health, but is this actually correct?
Can probiotics supplements actually make things worse?
There are a lot of myths surrounding the topic of probiotic benefits and what may be the best probiotics for gut health.
However even over one century later we still know only a relatively small amount when it comes to the complexity of the gut microbiome and how it affects our overall health.
The same goes for probiotics.
Most people will hear about probiotics benefits, but hardly if ever about probiotics side effects.
There has been plenty said about how many probiotics supplements can in fact be completely useless due to the live bacteria dying off before the consumer even gets to use them. That when we build a healthy terrain the body finds its one balance without the need to add anything in.
But what if people were given the exact same live probiotics and got very different results?
There was actually a study done where they gave all the healthy participants the exact same probiotics. What they found was very surprising.
Some of the participant’s gut microbiome resisted the probiotics and they passed through without making any impact, while another group had their gut microbiome affected by the probiotics.
So the conclusion was that depending on the individual, probiotics may or may not work. Have you found them to help? We never did. Diet and de- stressing gave us a much better microbiome.
Probiotics 💊 Vs Prebiotics 🥭
Probiotics are living microorganisms that support a healthy digestive tract and are useful to restore the gut or in times of stress or imbalance. Eating them, or having them inside your gut, can help your digestive system function more efficiently and studies have shown in some cases it may contribute to a healthier immune system, among other health benefits.
But as always how can we cut out the middle supplement or animal to get what we need?
Well have you heard of PREBIOTICS? According to the official definition, a prebiotic is any substance used by microorganisms inside the body that confers health benefits. Translation: prebiotics are beneficial microbes’ food. While researchers are still learning about their full potential to boost overall health or even treat disease, one thing is for sure adding more prebiotics rich foods to your diet can give you a happier gut.
The difference between PROBIOTICS and PREBIOTICS can be understood in a plant analogy, and you know I love an analogy. If the intestine is comparable to a flowerbed, probiotics are the individual seeds that you plant. Prebiotics work like fertilizer used to promote the growth of the flowers or “probiotics”. As the flower thrives, it will pollenate and multiple in time create a thriving environment. You can’t have flowers without a healthy soil and you can’t have flowers without healthy seeds.
So what are prebiotics?
Not every fiber or carbohydrate is a prebiotic, because there are two categories of dietary fiber: soluble fiber, which is fermented by gut bacteria, and insoluble fiber, which is not fermented. The soluble fibers that are metabolized by beneficial gut microbes are considered “prebiotics”.
Inside your gut, prebiotics stimulate beneficial gut microbes to grow, improving gut health which as we know supports all other areas of health too.
How do we get them?
There are 3 major types of prebiotics that are found: inulin, oligosaccharides and arabinogalactans.
Foods that contain prebiotics are:
•Onions (eaten as medicine only) (raw)
•Carrots (heirloom yellow and purple)
•Garlic (eaten as medicine only) (raw)
•Dandelion Root and Greens
•Sweet Potatoes (raw)
•Red Cabbage (raw)
Increasing these will help your gut health and digestion (note garlic and onions are a medicinal plant and should not be used regularly as they are extremely astringent and can remove benefits if used daily. For instant garlic can break down mucus in the arteries but will also go on to weaken the mucus membranes in the arteries.
What about ANTIBIOTICS? 💊
Some doctors and I agree, say the use of antibiotics has been one of the most harmful medical intervention in modern history. I add vaccinations as the first, antibiotics as the second.
Now in all cases there are the few that this invention has been lifesaving. However the ‘pop like candy’ use of them has lead to longer term issues and generational too.
I recommend my clients to avoid them at all cost and instead consistently work on the terrain inner and outer. Through nutrition, energy and environment and long term longevity solutions from nature.
Antibiotics Use 💊
Antibiotics, also known as antibacterials, are medications that destroy or slow down the growth of bacteria. They include a range of powerful drugs and are used to treat diseases caused by bacteria. Antibiotics cannot treat viral infections, such as cold, flu, and most coughs.
All #antibiotics kill or at least damage even healthy cells in the body; a poison is a poison. (Chemo and Radiation to)
When there is a “tooth or or sinus or urine or chest infection or skin irritation,” there is an accumulation of toxic matter inside the tooth, sinus pathways or bladder or chest or the lymphatic system is backed up and the detox pathways are not open….that came from the bloodstream from a bad diet or chemicals, and the body’s defence system and ubiquitous bacteria are working at breaking down the toxins so they’ll be less harmful and can be eliminated. The “INFECTION” is evidence of the body “CURING” itself. Thus, we must stop the cause.
Killing the bacteria only impedes the body’s self-healing efforts. All bacteria are polymorphic….they mutate to different forms in the presence of different food sources. French biologist Antoine Bechamp extolled this in the late 1800s, and he even succeeded in convincing Louis Pasteur that his germ theory of disease causation is wrong. Medical doctor John Tilden, author of the course-book Toxaemia Explained, taught why toxic matter was the cause of disease in the 1920s and 30s, but few paid attention and most dismissed that. This was the time medications and pharmacies started to increase and we moved away from essential oils and herbs to support our bodies. When we have, say, H. pylori at a diseased spot of the body, the medical protocol is to blame the H. pylori and try to kill it. The H. pylori is doing nothing bad; it is eating the rubbish in the body and not making things “worse.” The “worse” experience are symptoms indicating the body’s defence system working hard at getting rid of the toxins for healing. If antibiotics “work,” the body actually did the detoxing and healing work despite the poisonous antibiotics. A common “infection” will be resolved by flushing the local spot if possible with pure water and by doing a water fast or juice cleanse or eating all simply fruits. Antibiotics, even oregano oil, only interfere and make things more difficult for the body, but oregano oils in small does not used regular can be helpful no more than 7 days at a time (always diluted it’s a hot oil). Juice cleansing and fasting is the best approach to return the body to balance.
When antibiotics get into the bowel, they kill the bacteria we need to synthesise vitamins, and that can make the bowel and the entire body sick and disease appears. These takes years to recover from. 1 dose antibiotics takes some weak bodies a lifetime to recover from.
Antibiotic use frequently also builds up a resistance to them creating other bacteria and viruses become resistant and become super bacteria and viruses that are harder to overcome. This overuse contributes toward the growing number of bacterial infections that are becoming resistant to antibacterial medications. Super Bugs 🦠
“Then there is the danger that the ignorant man may easily underdose himself and by exposing his microbes to non-lethal quantities of the drug, make them resistant.” Alex Fleming Quote
Please note this is a guide based on my experience and education. Please listen to your own body and observe for yourself 🍃
You have t look at their overall lifestyle rather than pick out the olive oil.
Organic Cold Pressed and evening passed through a pigs bottom oil is not ideal for human bodies.
Oil is not the type of fat that you want to include in your diet because it’s fattening and disease building.
You will hear about essential fatty acids, such as omega 3’s and 6’s and how raw and cold pressed oils will give you these health promoting fats.
Whether it is olive oil, coconut oil, flax seed oil, heat treated or cold pressed/raw oil, oils do not promote health in any shape or form.
Mediterranean diet myth and its use of olive oil!
Supposedly, a great aid to those that consume it and today is still touted around the world as been health promoting.
However, when you look at the facts behind this and other supposedly healthy oils it all comes down to the same thing…fat and nothing else but fat!
What never gets mentioned is the fact that the people consuming olive oil in the island of Crete, for example, back in the 1950’s were eating an abundance of fruits and vegetables and doing plenty of exercise and manual work.
Fast forward to the present day and their health is now very much the same as many westerners, being overweight and unhealthy.
The problem is that they now exercise less, eat unhealthily, consume animal products and processed foods, and carry on consuming olive oil.
Greek EPIC prospective cohort study followed 23,349 people eating the Mediterranean diet for 8.5 years.
The biggest health benefits did not come from the olive oil that they were eating.
Instead, it came from high vegetable intake, low meat intake, and moderate alcohol consumption.
Diets rich in olive oil, on the other hand, contribute to atherosclerosis and higher rates of coronary artery disease.
Let’s look at some of the facts about oils:
1. Oils are a highly processed food (a man-made fragmented nutrient), and contain 100% fat, which is something you will never find in nature. They can never compare to whole foods (fruits, veg, nuts and seeds), which always contain a whole host of many other nutrients as well as fat, and are a complete nutritional package.
2. Olive oil packs a whopping 4020 calories per ounce – if you want to release weight, that’s a LOT of empty, junk food calories!
3. Fat found in oils can results in extra flab around the waist and hips. Yes, as far as oils are concerned the unhealthy fat that you eat will be the fat that you wear.
4. Other adverse effects of consuming oils include: unbalanced Omega 3 to 6 ratio, diabetes and immune system suppression. We need omega 3’s which cone in a ratio low in 6’s from whole seeds, greens, sprouts, seaweeds and algae’s.
Let’s also mention the thinning of the blood, which could be very serious if one is in a major traffic accident or suffers a ruptured artery in the brain.
Oil fats are also associated with an increased risk of cataracts.
So what should you eat instead of oil?
A whole and as much raw as possible diet containing fresh fruits, vegetables, and moderate amounts of plant-based whole food fats, are the optimal and only real choice for obtaining your essential fatty acids in a health-inducing way.
So, instead of buying into all this hype about what oils are supposed to do – just have your olives, nuts, coconuts and seeds as they come in their natural state and in moderate amounts.
Any oil, regardless of whether it has been cold pressed or not, is an imbalanced and unhealthy food source. Fragmented products result in fragmented health.

Not even Olive Oil!
Skin is your white flag to your bodies health. ACNE, ROSACEA , ECZEMA, PSORIASIS, SPOTS, RASHES ect… No topical cream potion or lotion will address it unless you address the root cause.
SO WHAT IS THAT?
Acids in the body! An acidic body thus an inflamed body which then causes too much mucus to be produced which causes the lymphatic system to become backed up and ooze out of the skin bringing the acids with it (the clever body is trying to eliminate the build up of waste and toxins) THE SKIN IS YOUR LAGEST ELIMINATION ORGAN!! It is simply lifting out what’s trapped inside…
So you see a cream on the outside will NOT address the inside. Only proper stress management, cellular detoxification with fasting, herbs, essential oils and FRUITS and raw vegetables will empty the body to allow the body to heal itself and return balance to allow you to be more mindful of what you put in again. Detoxification needs to be done but it doesn’t last forever you can return to a healthy balanced plant lifestyle afterwards BUT IT TAKES TIME
WHAT CAUSES ACIDS TO BUILD UP AND THUS CLOG THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM?
•Dairy from all animals even fermented kefirs and yogurts (big one)
•Eggs (big one)
•Meat and fish (big one)
•Oils like coconut, olive, sesame, peanut, macadamia, avocado ect (big one)
•Processed foods like flours and products made from them even GLUTEN FREE
•Grains and products made from them EVEN HOMEMADE ORGANIC
•Excess fats, nuts and seeds
•Beans and legumes
•A negative Mindset and overthinking
•Anger and especially trapped anger
•Lack of sleep
•Chemicals and toxins
•Poor food combinations
•Not removing waste from the intestines and lymphatic system
•Spices and vinegars
SO WHAT DO YOU DO?
•Transition to a plant only diet
•Decrease processed foods
•Remove oils and excess fats keeping them to 5-10% from natural whole fats like avocado
•Remove toxins and chemicals from your self care and home and environment
•Work on mindset and mindfulness and stress relief
•Work on trauma release and energy work
•Remove mucus and acid forming foods
•Build up to a cellular detox
•Connect to nature
•Move the body to pump your lymphatic system
•Introduce fasting slowly
Are you ready to do this?

I know the word parasites can make someone’s stomach turn.
That we don’t really have them, at least not YOU!
I would also love to say that we should simply love them all, but the truth is that when our bodies are imbalanced and sick when our inner terrain is acidic and toxic, the parasites will thrive.
They multiply by laying eggs and by secreting toxic waste, and therefore they are adding to the burden of an already sick body. Not a fun scenario, so this is where we have to start.
We let these uninvited guests have a grand party inside of us when we keep the terrain to their liking. In any so-called chronic stage of a disease, parasites will be present.
Because they have been invited!
They will not miss the offering of free room and board, and most likely they will invite their friends to join the party.
We all have them, the parasites, so the topic is nothing to freak out about. Yes, I saw them come out, and yes, you might too. They are a part of any living being. Microbes, cells, parasites, viruses, all living and vibrating. Parasites are any type of creature that feeds off of another host. Their intention is not to destroy the host, because if the host dies, they will be forced to die as well.
Although they can feed off of just about any kind of nutrient and food substance, there are certain foods, in particular, they thrive on. These are foods high in complex sugar/ starches, unhealthy fats, and any man-made ingredient such as food-preservatives, food-colorants, and many other food-additives. They are also attracted to heavy metals and other toxic substances. The more the merrier.
You do not have to look for them, or even wonder if they are there. If you are sick they are there, period. As long as your house is that of imbalance and over-acidity, you have work to do. This takes us back to the inner terrain, the cultivating medium.
For a parasite to thrive, it needs to live in an environment that feeds its needs. It needs to eat, and it needs to have a comfortable place to reside. Mucus is perfect, as they love a good conglomeration of bacteria and microbes. They lay their eggs, they eat, they secrete, and they reproduce quickly.
Sounds pretty simple, doesn’t it?
Some of them are very attracted to the complex sugars and will let you know that they are there, through your cravings. Depending on the kind, the parasites will eat different things. One thing that is certain is that they will feed off of you, and leave you depleted and more toxic. They also love your nutrition and will take the best for themselves, leaving you with the leftovers.
So, what do you need to do, do you change the environment, or kill the parasites?
YES to both!
Sometimes, when sickness has arrived, the big guns are needed, and I say you need to do both. Absolutely, the terrain needs to be changed, and it will, but a parasitic overload is a large burden on all the bodily systems and organs, so a good parasite cleanse is a must.
Foods with anti-parasitic properties:
Papaya seeds: The seeds from the papaya fruit have anthelmintic and anti-amoebic properties. This means that they kill intestinal worms and other parasitic organisms in your digestive system. Using papaya seeds for parasites has proven to be very effective. The seeds have a distinct slightly peppery flavour. They can, of course, be eaten as they are, or you can simply sprinkle them over salads and other dishes.
Extra Virgin Coconut oil: This well-known oil consists of medium-chain triglycerides, which help to strengthen and build the immune system. Furthermore, this oil is also high in both lauric acid and caprylic acid, which possess antiviral, antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties.
Garlic: This common household spice is also a potent herb for medicinal benefits. It is especially useful for flushing out parasites such as giardia and roundworms.
Cayenne pepper: Increases circulation, boosts the immune system, and fights parasites.
Pineapple: This much-loved fruit contains the digestive enzyme bromelain that helps to clear certain parasitic infections, such as tapeworms.
Pumpkin seeds: Pumpkin seeds contain “toxic, tetracyclic triterpenes” within the seeds, which are released upon chewing- or by grinding them. This substance is known to intoxicate and paralyse the worms, causing them to release their grip on the intestinal wall. They will need help being expelled, so be sure to move the bowels.
Aloe Vera: Aloe Vera helps to eliminate parasites, and it also helps to heal the body from the damage that might have been done. It is very effective at restoring the body at a deep cellular level by promoting new and healthy cell growth. A great alkaliser and intestinal healer.
Using Essential oils for anti-parasitic properties:
The Essential oils are natures treasures, they are our helpers and our blessings. Together with our wild botanicals, they are our gifts from God. Essential oils are created from plants, stems, and botanicals. They are used in many ways and have many benefits. There is a whole chapter dedicated to these amazing healers, and here’s some information that relates to the topic of parasites.
Frankincense: This is the king of all oils. Although mostly known for its anti-tumour properties and all-around healing abilities, I include it in any regimen. It is such a powerful restorative helper, that is will enhance the property of any other oil. You can inhale it, diffuse it, use it topically or put a drop under your tongue.
Myrrh: A very powerful antioxidant, and antiviral, anti-parasitic and analgesic/anaesthetic. The oil can be taken orally, a few drops in a small glass of water, in a capsule, inhaled or diffused.
Oil of oregano: This has also been used for its powerful anti-viral, antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-parasitic properties. It can be diffused, used topically with a carrier oil (1part oil, 4 parts carrier oil). It can also be ingested, but it is very strong, so do not put it directly into the mouth.
Peppermint: Great anti-parasitic properties, used against intestinal worms. Also antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal. You can place a few drops under the tongue, use it topically, a few drops in a glass of water, or inhaled.
Tea Tree (Melaleuca): A truly powerful antibacterial, anti-fungal, antiviral and anti-parasitic oil, used in many cultures. Mix a few drops in a glass of water, or put it in your diffuser.
Clove: This is one of the most antimicrobial and antiseptic of all essential oils. It is also an anti-fungal, antiviral and anti-infectious. Rub it on your skin or diffuse it.
Lemon: Such a great all-around oil. Inexpensive and very potent. A great alkaliser, and no parasite like an alkaline environment. Use it internally, topically, diffuse it and smell it.
Cinnamon Bark: one of the most powerful antiseptics known, strongly antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal.
Eucalyptus (Radiata): Great for topical use. It is anti-infectious, antibacterial and antiviral.
Rosemary: This oil has great antiseptic and antimicrobial properties. Diffuse or use topically.
Remember to always make sure that you are moving your bowels while cleaning out the parasites. We want the bowel to move, and during a cleanse it is even more important. Use an enema bag if you need too. I used one every single day during my heaviest cleanses. That way you are sure that what you are killing off is coming out. You can use a regular enema bag that you buy online, with room temperature water.

First, when we consume any food it must go through a
“digestive” process, or a process whereby the body breaks
down the structures of the food into building materials and
fuels. The body requires these raw materials for energy to
function and also to build and repair itself. The breakdown of
food is accomplished through enzyme action, which starts in
the mouth, where carbohydrates, sugars and fats begin their
alkaline digestion. The stomach also produces a digestive
enzyme called pepsin; an acidic enzyme released by HCL
(hydrochloric acid) for initial protein digestion. The rest of
digestion takes place in the small bowel, which is alkaline in
nature. When our foods are not properly broken down, either
from a weak pancreas, stomach and intestinal tract, or from
bad food combinations, one will experience gas formation
from fermentation and/or putrefaction. The greater the gas
problems, the greater the weakness and/or bad diet choices.
The body breaks down the foods you eat into the following:
Proteins are broken down into amino acids for building and
repair material. Carbohydrates (starches and complex
sugars) are broken down into simple sugars for fuel. Fats are
broken down into fatty acids and glycerol, for building, repair
and emergency needs. It is important to remember that we
have alkaline digestive enzymes in the mouth for
carbohydrate and fat digestion. We have acid (pepsin)
digestive enzymes in the lower stomach for initial protein
digestion. Then we have alkaline digestive enzymes in the
pancreas and throughout the first part of the small intestinal
tract to finish up the job for proteins, starches, sugars and
fats. It is also important to understand that most of our
processes are alkaline in nature. Digestion is the first process
that must take place in a healthy body and many people fail
right here. If you are very thin or lack adequate muscle
tissue, it is a strong probability that your body has not been
digesting (breaking down) your foods adequately and you
maybe very acidic
Once foods are broken down, we must now absorb these
building materials, fuels and other components, which
include: tissue salts, vitamins, tannins, alkaloids and flavins.
These components are now carried by the bloodstream to the
cells for energy, stimulation, building and repairing, or stored
for future use. Absorption is accomplished through the villi
(fingerlike projections on the surface of certain membranes)
and small pores all along the mucous membranes of the small
and large intestines. This absorption should be simple, but
most people’s intestines become impacted with a thick
rubberlike substance called “mucoid plaque.” This thick
plaque, which develops in the GI tract, is made of gluten,
mucus, foreign protein, and other food byproducts that act
more like glue than nutrition! Refined sugars, grains, meats,
and dairy products are the foods that are most responsible for
the formation of this plaque. This “mucoid plaque” blocks the
nutritional components of our foods from being adequately
absorbed into the body. (I have seen clients and my self who
have eliminated loads of this “black” plaque from their
intestines.) Most of us fail in the second stage of food
utilisation to some extent because of this congestive mucoid
plaque. Again, if you are thin, malnourished or lack adequate
muscle tissue, or bloated a malabsorption issue must be
We must get nutrition too and into our cells. The blood system
and its highways (the vascular system) are the transport
system. Most of the absorbed nutrition must first pass
inspection by the liver, which can create further chemical
changes, store nutrients, or pass them on unchanged to the
rest of the body for utilisation. The number of processes the
liver can carry out is miraculous. It can create its own amino
acids, change sugars too fats, and vice versa. It can create or
destroy. Now a little secret. This is where the importance of
acid and alkaline comes in. If our body (including our blood)
becomes more acidic, our nutrition becomes anionic
(coagulating). In other words, our building materials (fats,
fuels, minerals, and other compounds) start sticking or
clumping together not letting these nutrients be absorbed.
Most of the foods commonly eaten by humans are acid
forming. Acidity, which is heat-producing in the body, causes
inflammation in the walls of the vascular highway and
throughout the body. Lipids (fats) begin sticking to the walls
of the vessels in hopes of buffering this inflammation. But
lipid bonding also causes lipid stones, such as gallbladder and
liver stones. Cholesterol is the most common anti-
inflammatory lipid that the body uses to fight this
inflammation. When the tissues become acidic and thus
inflamed, the liver will produce more cholesterol to fight it.
But that means that blood cholesterol levels begin to elevate.
Minerals too start bonding and form “rock-type” stones,
which show up as kidney stones and bone spurs. Cell
membrane walls have tiny portholes that will not allow this
“clumped” nutrition to be absorbed. When red blood cells start
clumping together, blocking proper oxygen transport, or
utilisation, this creates cellular starvation, which causes
hypo-active conditions of glands and organs, loss of systemic
energy, loss of muscle tissue, and finally death. Many glands
supply hormones, steroids, to assist utilisation. As these
glands become hypo- or under-active as described above, the
utilisation of calcium and other constituents is affected,
creating many disease symptoms. For example, one of the
jobs of calcium is to help transport nutrients across cell
membrane walls. When the thyroid gland becomes hypoactive
this slows or stops calcium utilisation, which has a domino
effect, causing cellular starvation. This, of course, makes
tissue even weaker and the cycle just gets worse and worse until sickness, then death. Most people fail in the utilisation of
their nutrition to some degree.
What goes in must, for the most part, come out. We must
expel more than what we put in. If it comes out looking the
same way it went in, that’s a problem. (You should not see
undigested foods, except corn, in your stools.) When the
elements in food are broken down into their simplest forms
for utilisation by the cells, there are many by-products from
this process including gases, acids, cellular wastes,
undigested proteins, and unused material like vitamins and
minerals that need to leave the body. The body is always
trying to eliminate in ways that we often do not understand.
An example would be cold and flu-like symptoms, where
sneezing, coughing, sweating, aching, fevers, and diarrhoea
are experienced. These symptoms are elimination processes
used by the body to purge itself of mucus, parasites, toxins,
and the like. If we do not eliminate our wastes, we build
congestion interstitially (around cells) and intracellularly
(inside cells), causing further cellular decay and death. Good
elimination means moving our bowels three times a day, or
after each meal, urinating adequately, sweating, and
breathing properly. All of us fail in this category to some
extent or another. By correcting digestion, absorption,
utilisation, and elimination we can regain our energy, build
vitality and vibrancy, and live a disease-free life. If you have
trouble loosing weight or have edema you are likely to be not
Fevers, cold/flu, diarrhoea, vomiting are all clever mechanism the body uses to heal itself. These are also very common healing crisis. Or can be from an overburden body trying to realise out..ever noticed that you get a “cold” after a big week of indulgent foods or a stressful week at work. Unfortunately most people will suppress it instead of assisting what the body is trying to do and you don’t want to get into suppressing minor symptoms like that, as it leads to more issues down the road. I see this a lot of people even in the natural health community, because they are still trying to fix symptoms instead of understanding the cause. This is still an allopathic approach disguised as natural health.
Whatever you use to suppress symptoms (even herbs or natural treatment) will not improve health in the long run, because the body’s elimination process has been stopped you are working against the bodies instincts.
When we suppress, all we are doing is ignoring the cause or the message the body is sending us. I understand symptom can be quite annoying and it’s hard to see your child “unwell” but if you know exactly what is going on with the body, you can assist it in what it’s trying to do, without obstructing the flow of energy….Intuitive self healing!
So what is a fever exactly in many cases? I can be due to dehydration, stress, a rise in blood pressure, etc. In most cases a fever is the body trying to dissolve and move stagnant mucus in the brain and sinus area. Please note if your fever is to high consult a specialist.
What can you do to help yourself?
You can get rid of colds, flus, fevers in about a couple hours following these procedures , but sometimes it takes a day or two depending on how much discharge the body is trying to get rid of or how much stress the body is under. It will definitely shorten the severity and duration of whatever you are dealing with.
When the body is dealing with an acute ailment, it naturally looses its desire to eat. Follow that, don’t fight it….don’t listen to the tails of “eat something you will feel better”. If you do feel hungry try to limit your intake to fruit juices only or coconut water. High water fruit like watermelon and grapes can be eaten as well or even a soup depending on the person’s detoxification plan, but you want to give a rest to you digestive system so your body’s energy can go to healing instead of processing foods. Also do not listen to the old tails of “toast will soak it up” the bread feeds the pathogens, blocks the body and seems to make you feel better, but in fact you push it back down for another time…
Using essential oils to cool the body like peppermint, but not stopping the fever is great. Adding 1 drop with a carrier oil to the soles of your feet or placing 2 drops in a salt bath for children.
Mucus will start to run out of the nose. You will want to assist that with pungent and/or aromatic herbs like cayenne, ginger, Lemon, garlic, horseradish, etc. Or using 2 drops of eucalyptus, peppermint and lemon in a head steam bath with a tip of cayenne pepper and cover with a towel for 20 minutes.
Drink plenty of liquids (preferably natural juices of the sub acid and acid category or my lymph buster) as this will help the body flush out toxins at a faster rate.
You want to open the bowels, especially with a fever. If there is a lot of mucus in the sinus/head area, there is definitely too much in the transverse colon. Enemas are great in this case even twice a day while you feel congested.
Instead of cold bath, think sweat bath if possible. You want to sweat out the toxins as well. This can be done by drinking some ginger tea and then taking a hot bath. Afterwards, go to bed and cover yourself with a blanket to sweat out the toxins. Or go to sauna and cold plunge if you feel up to it.
Feel in to what emotion issue you are not dealing with read more hear:
Avoid using cough suppressants (even herbs that do this) instead use decongestants or expectorant herbs like mullein, eucalyptus, Echinacea, etc. especially if you get green, brown or yellow (thick) mucus coming out. That is a good sign. White is acute, yellow is sub acute, green is virus and toxic, brown is chronic, black is degenerative.
Often coughs that linger and have been shown not to be a virus can be upper respiratory, due the cough respiratory being in the ear nose and throat and if these areas are congested with mucus…cleaning them with ear candles or room temperature organic olive oil perpetuated into the ear canal for 15 minutes each side and massaged so the oil dislodged the wax and draws it out. This can also be done with a clean sock filled with sea salt and tired at the top, then heated in a pan and gentle placed on the ear for 10 minutes each side, with eucalyptus oils dropped on to the warmed sock. This will draw toxins out to.
Also if you get swollen lymph nodes, use lymphatic and kidney herbs. Good lymphatics are plantain, cleavers, red clover, pau darco and good kidney herbs are nettle, cornsilk, chapparal.
I invite you to stop treating symptoms! Stop fighting the body’s elimination processes! Stop going against the flow of energy of the body!
I invite you to understanding the cause instead of the effect! Start assisting the body in doing what it does best…self healing machine!

Many health coaches are all about balance and moderation…that’s not me. Your system will become very sensitive if your 80% raw but still compromising your body with animal foods, alcohol and cooked foods even if it is just a couple times a week.
Foreign denatured foods such as dead flesh, dairy and processed cooked grains that putrefies very quickly in the gut because we are not designed to eat it as our digestive tracts is too long with not the right enzymes….will compromise you not matter how much healthy fruits and vegetables you are eating.
Cooked food robs the body of energy! The chemistry is greatly altered and in most cases, causes digestive stress, gas, acidosis and loss of energy. Ultimately cooking food does lead to disease and an an early slow death!!
Getting healthy is not about what you add on to your diet…but about what you eliminate from your diet.. I would start getting healthy today and not put it off so you avoid the suffering in the future. Any kind of heads symptoms are usually related to a very toxic G.I. track because the head is connected to the stomach. Your stomach is second brain and when it gets compromised by foreign evaders and dead rotting foods, it’s eating away at your brain and nervous system. You may not be able to afford to be eating these foods that are very mucus forming and full of acids…. because you have become so backed up with an acidic lymphatic system. The generation of kids these days are coming through worst…. their health is due to their genetic make up been compromised by the wrong foods we have been eating are whole lives and for a few generations. So stop feeding your kids this toxic stuff!
We don’t need cooked foods of any kind to meet our nutritional requirements, or health needs. You are a fruigivore species by your anatomy and physiology. The further you move away from eating fruit in it’s Raw and natural state and the more you put these obstructions in the body, the more health problems you will have sooner or later. I highly recommend detoxification by eliminating the acidic and mucus forming foods to avoid the pain….removing heavy metals and toxins form our sensitive kids.
Grains, beans, and animal foods will never promote health only add on acidosis. Every human species is allergic to dairy and gluten BECAUSE IT IS NOT OUR FOOD. The body will start to heal itself naturally when you remove cooked and mucous forming food.
The amount of acid ash meat leaves behind will put so much damage on your kidneys, and reproductive organs! The body is a carbon-based system and like gas is designed to make a car operate, sugar is designed up make the body operate. Protein and fats throw the body into ketosis…. and ketosis is a state of the body trying to live off it’s protective reserves not the essential fuel it’s designed for which is carbon. Animal protein has been known to strip calcium from the bones and create bone loss and cancer and osteoporosis. Animal foods are linked to cancer/heart disease/diabetes. Dairy is linked to prostate, breast and colon cancer. All these foods we think we need do for there “proteins” are causing the very health problems were experiencing…..and we continue to eat them thinking we need their proteins!!??
Paleo…Ketosis Diets and Atkins are all killing us!!
The homosapien is not a meat eating species. Humans are like primates designed to eat fruits, tender greens and some seeds…
Animal protein is too high in protein (complex structures of amino acids) it putrefies in your GI tract, its vibrationally negative and leaches calcium out of the body. All of this is caused by high acidosis, which leads to all the allopathic disease symptomology. Vegan/Vegetarian high complex amino acid foods (proteins) such as beans, seeds, eggs, nuts, etc., cause acidosis as well. These foods are very difficult to digest (enzyme inhibitors) and very constipating just to start. The result of a high protein is a long list of disease the medical world created. The areas of your body that see the most damage from higher protein diets are the GI tract tissue, urinary system (kidneys, bladder, testes, prostate, uterus, and ovaries.

If you have to cook a food in order to digest it…it is not suitable for your body. Every animal in nature eats their food raw by natural design. Humans are not an exception. The human anatomy is not designed to consume food that has to be cooked. We are frugivores so we are designed for fresh ripe fruits in there raw and natural state.
But people can and have survive of these foods and live long life’s when fire came in and they needed too…. and they thrive more then someone consuming animal products BUT OUR SENSTIVE KIDS NEED ADVANCED NUTRTION TO UNLOCK THEM AND REMOVE TOXINS. I can recommend using starches in the evening meals only while transitioning to this lifestyle and or would also consider a few steamed sweet potatoes pr pumpkin for someone extremely toxic during a detox to slow it down considerably if the die off was too much. The body is designed for simple sugars found in fructose not complex sugars. Complex sugars found in starchy foods, leave behind a lot of metabolic waste and create a sticky gluey like substance in the bowel wall that blocks absorption an coats the villi. This creates mucoid plaque. Starches like root vegetables and grains are also fungal promoting foods and fermentation causes candida overgrowth in the body and SIBO.
Children before there immune system has been strengthened should not eat starches and any child who has compromise gut should avoid starches.
There is a good reason why someone who goes on a 100% raw food diet starts to crave starchy foods. When someone craves starchy foods like potatoes, breads, rice and flour products on a detox program it’s because they’re pulling on fungal beds and the parasites are trying to survive. These microbes and parasites are dying and they have consciousness like any other living beings. They eat and waste in our bodies and they crave these foods badly so they could survive. Whenever you get cravings for these foods it’s most likely because candida is getting out of control because of fermentation…..or it’s because there struggling to survive and are dying. The best way to overcome these cravings is to be consistent on a raw food diet and never cheat (I know how hard that is)…that’s why eating high fruit will help you. If you want to get these cravings under control while you detox you can look into a juice cleanse to flush out your bowels for 3-14 days. Also take a good anti-parasitic herbal formula or homeopathy to kill of the parasites and candida while you detox the lymphatic system. The root cause of this problem the majority of the time is because the adrenal glands are not functioning properly and they are responsible for sugar metabolism. If your not metabolizing fruit sugar well you have really bad adrenal function, and most likely tons of candida overgrowth in your body. So the main focus is to try and encourage adrenal gland function with fruits, fasting, detoxification and meditation as STRESS plays a massive part. When the adrenal glands start to function again then your blood sugar should come back in balance and you won’t ferment your sugars…. candida will balance out in the body and the cravings for starches will cease to exist. I PROMISE YOU…I can now go to a bread ship or cakes stand and not feel any urge to eat it….I still crave cooked sweet potatoes from time to time as die off happens.
If you have high fungus and sulphur in your body and your eating root veggies and other starches then your going to have a lot of trouble metabolizing complex sugars vs fruit sugars…thus you will have massive amounts of candida issues. Even veggies will be more difficult then fruits. Fruits are the best option for detoxification, sugar metabolism issues and getting to the root problem. Fixing the adrenal glands that are responsible for the metabolism of sugars will resolve the blood sugar fermentation issue.
I find using dried fruits to transition from comforting starchy foods helps and eating bananas as they fill you up…

The first thing I ask my clients is what are you stools like? I talk about shit often hahah!
Your bowel movements will tell you a lot about weather you have mucoid plaque build up in your large bowel (which we all have!).
Are your bowel movements thin, and not full? And are you finding undigested food in your stools? This is your pancreas being suppressed by acidosis and your foods are not being absorbed in the villi in the small bowel. This is because of mucus and sulphur blocking absorption. Starchy foods stick like glue in the Villi. Detox will resolve this issue in time, if you get your bowels moving well and are eating plenty of astringent fruits and your fats are low. Contrary to belief vegetables like celery alone, will not scrub this stuff out… you need the fruits and fruit juice for this. It takes time to clean this stuff out, as I say often…and it is in this muciod plague that the parasites and fungus and yeast thrive!!
When you have been eating starchy cooked and processed foods for the majority of your life as I had. It takes time to get improved absorption. You’ve got to be at least 80% fruit based, if you want to resolve this issue faster.
Grapes, watermelon, berries and citrus fruits and juice are the best at pulling it out. Along with enemas and dry fasting…
Be patient and allow your body to break down as much as it wants to because you can’t fix Malabsorption with supplements, nutrition, fats and proteins. This issue of malabsorption must be fixed through detoxification. If you have lots of mucoid plaque, sulphur, and fungus in the body then it may take a while to get this stuff out, I know for me it is taken years and sometimes I feel like I will never get there…but I know it takes time. The acids and mucus is the root of all these obstructive health conditions especially for my youngest son Edward. Starches will only make Malabsorption worse, because starch sticks to the bowels like paper machete stopping nutrients getting in.
Along with the above astringent fruits I recommend a GI Broom powder or making your own.
Take ½ tsp for children 2-3 tsp for adults in juice or water each night…
To make this:
250 grams Psyllium Husk
2 tbs Activated Charcoal
2 tbs Bentonite Clay
2 tbs Slippery Elm Powder
*Option to add any herbs you like.
Add it all into a container or jar and use the dose above each night for healthy bowel movements and to pull out mucus plague….

I tried using many types of probiotics and supplements over the years on my kids, clients and myself… I’ve done candida diets and yeast cleanses and even tried adding more yeast in and other crazy things!
The balance within your body such as yeasts, funguses, worms, parasites, mucus, acids, protein plaques, microbes, virus etc….must get detoxed and removed out of your body to get to the root of health. In order to change the environment in the body we must clean out the old not just ‘add’ in new. Supplementing with “pills” in a body with a backed up septic tank will not get you true health.
When the body fails to function in areas such as digestion, absorption, utilization and elimination. Trying to fix the problem with an isolated pill, supplement or adding large amounts of one bacteria and one mineral will not bring the body balance…. especially as they are none organic in it’s holistic structure (no longer a whole food but a part of a food that has been chemically changed and isolated) is only going to feed the body with just another foreign invader creating more imbalance and stress. I think of the phrase in movies when they say ‘magic comes with a price’…well so does supplementation….
The body is designed to utilize holistic chemistry so thinking a supplement created in a lab by big pharma will do more then what a whole organic fresh ripe piece of fruit can’t do….is not thinking from a place that nature provides us with all we need, and it does!
Supplements suppress the function of the endocrine glands and throw the body out of balance…
‘Probiotics are dead fermented chemistry not designed for the body’ says Dr Herbet Shelton. The body is designed to create healthy gut bacteria from the foods we are designed to eat and our environment. When we detox the body and turn on the endocrine glands, everything goes back to balance. When we get back to nature and simply eat the foods our bodies are biologically designed to eat….the body will create healthy natural bacteria to fight of the microbe that cause obstructions naturally.
Probiotics and fermented foods like Kefir and Sauerkrauts only aggravate and make candida symptoms worse…I know that it controversial, as they are marketed as gut healing foods. Candida thrives on fermentation. Candida or (yeast) gets out of control in the body through fermentation so why add more in? When you have weak adrenals then you are likely to have blood sugar problems. When your not metabolizing sugars well, fermentation takes place. The fungal family comes in and feasts on the fermentation….so the food you eat is just feeding them not your cells. Why give the body more fermentation if you may already have a sugar metabolism issues creating the yeast overgrowth in the first place? We need some left in the body but for it to be at blanched ratio…
So if you have skin issues, weak yellow brittle nails, dry hair, bloating, gas or loose stools…you have a fungal imbalance.
The simpler we can look out how the body is designed to function optimally the more we will understand that supplementing is another way of masking a symptom and not addressing the root cause….just like prescription drugs!
Often these supplements are made from sister or cousin companies of BIG PHARMA…..just think about that for a moment with where the motivation comes from?
The best way to get rid of yeast overgrowths is to work on the adrenal glands with herbs/homeopathy and a raw living foods diet high in ripe fruits and the correct food combinations. If you think you have a candida overgrowth you should also avoid or never eat starches processed or in there whole food state. Starches are fungal formers and candida loves foods that create a lot of mould, such as starches and dairy products. If you have candida I would suggest keeping your fats to below 5 % of your nutritional plan too as the fats in the system will stop fruits being digested, and cause fermentation of the healthy fruits. High fruits, low protein and low fats are the best way to heal the body.
It’s very common for someone to crave breads, nuts and cheese when they have fungal problems….because the yeast thrive on these foods because the fermentation process takes place very quickly.
The goal to get healthy and to create balance in the body is to alkalize the body and to get the kidneys filtering and everything will come into balance on its own…not needing one extra mineral…with the exception of magnesium due to our soils and possible B12 until your body can utilise it from the organic fruits and vegetables and produce it in your gut.
Fruits, berries, melons, greens and herbs that promote detoxification is the best way to bring balance and alkalinity to the body with a daily mediation practice to boost your immune system and complementary remedies like essential oils, homeopathy and herbs. Yeast, parasites, fungusus cannot thrive in an alkaline body, nether can any pathogens and foreign invaders and viruses.
Dr Robert Morse teaches that there is only 2 sides of chemistry and that’s acid and alkaline. When you get on the alkaline side of chemistry and you detox the acids that are suppressing the lymphatic system, blocking the flow of energy and causing disease… then “nutritional ” supplementation becomes a void modality that was created by a mind and industry that doesn’t understand the lymphatic system and true healing like we do in Natural Hygiene.
It’s not what we add in that creates a healthy body it’s what we eliminate that creates a thriving healthy body with balance.
Detoxification is the best way to get to the root of the problem and if we are stuck on supplementation with PILLS, powders, supplements and thinking that we are adding in “Nutrition” …thinking that’s going to clean up the problem! Then we have been fully mistaking by so called “Health Experts” that are thinking no different then a medical Doctor that prescribes a drug to treat a symptom, not addressing the cause. So many of these healthy natural supplements and nutritional meal replacement systems are produced by big pharmaceuticals companies that make the medicines and drugs. THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOUR LONG TERM HEALTH JUST ABOUT MAKING MONEY AND TEMPORALLY GIVING YOU THE SENSATION OF HEALTH.
The best supplement you can give your body is creating kidney filtration to drain the waste, so that he body can go on to thrive in proper homeostasis, balance and alkalinity. This takes time I have been on this journey for years….I hold strong that I am in it for the long term health and not quick gains. I picture myself a health 60 year old and smile with knowing this is the right path to healing.
Add in alkaline nutrition and stop putting acids in your body and you will never need an expensive supplement to mask a symptom and create an imbalance not aligned with nature…
