My home town is/ was Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The City of Brotherly Love (a majority of the time), the craddle of American Independence, residence of Benjamin Franklin (top ten Americans of all time), and home to the only sports team I follow- the Philadelphia Eagles.
Growing up I was a sports nut. Now sports consume very few cycles as I have more important things to do with my time.
Last week I made a quick trip home to Philly to see my family and to meet Chris Conway, President, Healthy Humans, an exciting integrative medicine website that I will discuss in a future blog as well as my brother-in-law, John Marshall who runs a recruiting firm in King of Prussia, Pa and genrously offered his seats to the Philadelphia Eagles versus Dallas Cowboys football game.
The Eagles miraculously won themselves a playoff birth on Sunday, proving once again that anything is possible.
The Eagles were essentially eliminated from the playoffs , save unlikely losses by both the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Chicago Bears and a win by them over the Dallas Cowboys.
How likely was this outcome? Three (3) separate things had to fall in line for them to succeed.
All three contingencies fell into place!
This was the best Football game in my life! Go EAGLES!
This proves once again that miracles do happen everyday.......
Happy New Year!
PS- Let's order up some miracles in 2009 that really matter like: an end to all wars, an end to poverty/ homelessness, and a global economic recovery.

I found Maca powder for sale in the "super foods" section of my local food coop Wheatsville Grocers here in Austin. Always the adventurous sort, I bought a bag of Maca powder. Maca is a root vegetable similar to a turnip in appearance and taste.
It is called an adaptogen (new one for me.) An adaptogen is a substance which raises the non-specific resistance in an organism. It works to strengthen the endocrine (horimonal system) in the body.
This endocrine healing is really important as you will learn in my next book "Rich Remedies, Volume 2". Many of our common toxins that we consume in our water and in our food attack our endocrine system. After many years of consuming toxins such as dioxin, BPA (from plastic containers), and chlorine, we risk suffering from a whole host of auto-immune disorders and reproductive problems from these poisons.
This ancient Andean vegetable powder may be a useful supplement to counter act the toxins in our modern industrial society.
Here are a few of the claims for this powdered root:
• Increases energy and endurance
• Increases stamina
• Alleviates chronic exhaustion (fatigue) syndrome
• Improves sexual function in men and women
• Enhances fertility in people and animals
• Reduces hormonal dysfunction during menopause & andropause
• Can regulate hormonal irregularities
• Aids in alleviating depression, gives a sense of well being, reduces anxiety
Maca has calcium, phosphorus, vitamins B1 and B12 , and fatty acids that which work beneficially on the nervous system.
This is a new one for me. I am using it in my biweekly smoothies that contain rice milk, diamatacious earth, green magma, flax seed, and whatever fruit is handy in my home at the time. The Maca powder tastes like mild turnip, pretty neutral.
It sounds like a winner. Do your own research and see if it works for you.
PS- As always, consult your healing coach before taking anything new. Vegetables can be dangerous :-) :-) :-)

The holiday season is a great time of year to donate money to worthy causes. I just dropped a few sheckles into the scare crow's hat for the Green Corn Project: http://www.greencornproject.org/gc/donate
"The Green Corn Project (GCP) is a 501(c) (3) organization that educates and assists Central Texans in growing organic food gardens. Since our founding in 1998, GCP has built over 130 organic food gardens at homes, schools, and community centers in Central Texas. Our programs help folks with limited access to healthy food, grow their own vegetables in ways that are affordable, promote self-reliance, strengthen communities, and protect natural resources."
What's not to like about this?
I'm going to figure out how to volunteer some hours this Spring during planting season.
Find a worthy cause and donate some time and money......you'll get more than you put in....I promise. The Holiday Season is the perfect time to do it.
PS- A way to make your food more healthful on a tight budget is found on page 141 of my book Rich Remedies, Volume 1. The Hazel Parcells soak is discussed for cleansing food and re energizing it. This method is used by United Nations releif workers accross the globe to clean food.
Monday, December 22, 2008
At the book signing yesterday in Austin I told people that my book Rich Remedies, Volume 1 is 20 years of healing experience baked into a couple of hours of reading. And it's true. It's a real time saver and money saver if you're serious about your health and want to benefit from the experience of others (me).
Here's how I tell people to use the book:
1.Read the book.
2.If you don't like to read, skim though the book and just read passages that catch your eye.
3.If something looks interesting, consult a healing coach and ask their advice:
I have worked with a number of great allopathic and naturopathic healers. Before you do anything to treat a disease or illness, find a physician or healer who embraces all modalities of healing. This can be an enlightened MD, a holistic doctor, or naturopathic physician. When you find a good physician, be a co-pilot in your diagnosis and treatment. They are only your coach. You are responsible for the cure.
For a directory of physicians in your area contact the American Holistic Medical Association (PO Box 2016, Edmonds, WA 98020; Phone: 425-967-0737; Fax: 425-771-9588; e-mail: INFO@holisticmedicine.org).
Find a clinically trained, degreed nutritionist to aid you in your health plan. This is tricky because there are a lot of people who have a nutritionist degree, but don’t really know what they are talking about. You can get a correspondence course degree off of the back of a bubble gum wrapper and claim to be a nutritionist. A starting place for names is your local health food store or contact the
American Dietetic Association (120 S. Riverside Plaza, Suite 2000, Chicago, Ill. 60606; Member Services Phone: (312)-877-1600 ext4864; website: www.eatright.org). I tried to do all of this healing stuff on my own, and have confirmed that the least successful patient acts as his own doctor. Get a trained, qualified healing coach.
Your cure: Nothing works the same way for everyone. Every body, mind, and soul has a unique blueprint that has to be matched with the correct cure. We have different genes, ancestors, tribal beliefs, environments, climates, magnetic earth fields, life experiences, blood types, and other unique characteristics that make global recommendations for cures impossible. There are general rules of thumb that can be applied to everyone. Find the ones that work (resonate) for you. I have found a few that are worth your consideration.
4.Clean your drinking water. Your body is 75% water. This alone will deliver incredible benefits. Buy a water ionizer or a simple sink top filtration system. I have them for sale on my website: www.richremedies.com
5.Get Alkaline. Eat Fresh, organic vegetables and drink your clean water.
6.Give- Find one (1) local community service agency that resonates with you and volunteer your time. Helping others helps yourself.
These are the simplest things to get started today. KEEP IT SIMPLE, MAKE IT EASY to START.......

I was thumbing through one of my old journals last night looking for references for my second book "Rich Remedies, Volume 2" and found this obscure note-
Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Schuessler, M.D.(1821 - 1898), a Germany homoeopathic practitioner- developed a system of treatment called Biochemic Therapy. It is an offshoot of homoeopathy. Twelve (12) mineral salts are used in homoeopathic medicines to cure a wide range of illnesses.
"Biochemic salts are used in potentised form as homoeopathic drugs. While the biochemic salts supply the deficiency in the tissues and cells of the body to restore their vitality"
"Mineral Salts" or "Cell Salts" or "Tissue Salts" correct deficienciencies in the body that lead to disease.
The 12 salts are:
Calcium Fluoride, Calcium Phosphate, Calcium Sulpher, Phosphate of iron, Potassium chloride, Potassium phosphate, Sodium chloride, Sodium phosphate, Sodium sulphate, Silica oxide- the Biochemical.
The concept is that when cells or tissues are energetically out of balance they are diseased. Restoring balance (homeostasis)returns health using a combination of these "salts". It was said that Dr.Schuessler could cure just about anything, including cancer with his Biochemic Therapy.
There are books available on the Internet that go into painful detail as to how this works. This fascinates and bores me at the same time. I was never much of a chemistry student.
Something about this made me write it down.....this is probably the last time.
I have taken Essiac and I will tell you that after you get past the "dreadful" taste, it does make you feel good. It has many antimicrobial properties that help the body fight a long list of nasty pathogens. There is a definite link between cancer and microbial infestation in the body.
During part of my Essiac "test" I was in the Bahamas staying at a relatives house that was using rain water from a ketchman underground cement water tank.
The water drawn from the ketchman tasted fine, but I know from my travel experiences and research that water likes movement. Water standing still,in a motionless state is a recipe for some level of stagnation and contamination. I wasn't going to risk ruining my Bahama holiday with a case of the "Jimmy Buffet Parrothead Two- Step". (This refers to "the runs" or diarrhea for those of you who don't enjoy hyperbole)
Drinking the Essiac tea on a daily basis gave me a layer of protection against any pathogens that may have taken up residence in the kethman. No one got sick while we were on vacation so there may have been nothing wrong with the water. But after many experiences with "off water" in the past few years, I take no chances.
Here's the short story on Essiac from my book "Rich Remedies, Volume 1". It is amazing stuff.
Miraculous herb formula!
Ojibway Native American Remedy-Essiac
Rene Caisse, sometimes referred to as “Canada’s Cancer Nurse,” discovered a Native American remedy in 1922 that showed promise as a cure for cancer. The remedy is called Essiac (her last name spelled backwards), has been successfully used to treat hundreds of patients. This Ojibway Native American tribal concoction consists of burdock root, turkey rhubarb, sheep sorrel, and slippery elm. Caisse’s clinic in Bracebridge, Ontario, Canada, was repeatedly attacked by the medical establishment and governmental bureaucrats. In spite of the pressure, she prevailed, saving many lives and improving the quality of life for cancer sufferers.
The story of her Essiac discovery goes something like this:
Caisse was nursing a woman in her 80s who had been admitted to a hospital in Ontario, Canada. She examined the woman and noticed that one of her breasts was deeply scarred and disfigured. Caisse asked the woman about her damaged breast. The woman told her that 20 plus years ago she had had breast cancer. She had gone to several doctors who had removed tumors from her breast, but they kept reappearing, ultimately being written off for dead by her physician.
She and her husband ran into a Native American Medicine Man who told them that he had an herbal tonic that would shrink and dissolve the tumors.
After having attempted to eliminate the breast tumors with conventional medicine, they reconnected with the Medicine Man in a last ditch, desperate attempt to heal her cancerous breast. She and her husband collected the prescribed herbs and mixed them in the recommended quantities. After taking the “medicine” for several months, the tumors in her breast shrank and disappeared.
Caisse used this remedy on many of the people that she encountered with cancer with miraculous results.
The herbs in the remedy exhibit healing qualities on their own, but it is thought that there is a synergistic effect when they are combined in the recommended quantities that create a total healing effect. Energetic Resonance.
Burdock root (Arctium lappa): Stimulates production of bile, helps liver function, acts as a blood purifier, has a reputation for tumor regression.
Turkey rhubarb (Rheum pamatun): Laxative, astringent, cleanses bowels, helps with liver toxicity.
Sheep sorrel (Rumex acetosella): High in vitamin C, diuretic helps in breaking down tumors.
Slippery elm (Ulmus fulva): Used to heal sore throats and wounds, and coat stomach and intestinal tract.
The Essiac Formula consists of 61/2 cups burdock root, 16 oz of powdered sheep sorrel, 1 oz. of Turkish rhubarb root powdered and 4 oz of slippery elm bark. These ingredients are mixed together and boiled in spring water to make a tea that is taken on an empty stomach each night before retiring. 3
I have taken Essiac tea as a healing tonic several times just to try it out. (It tastes like dirt. Some may argue that dirt tastes better. They’re pretty close in flavor so it’s a hard call.) I felt fine, after I got past the taste, and it did make my digestive tract feel really good. This is something I intend to keep in my disease fighting arsenal. You can buy a six month supply that comes pre-made in plastic pouches for around $100.00. It keeps pretty well so I have it around for when I have the urge to take some, which isn’t often. If I get the “BIG C”, this may be boiling on my stove every week! No guarantees, just an idea. Please consult your doctor for a full prescription.

Well it turns out that this stomach enzyme, serrapeptase has some miraculous anti inflammatory properties for applications in cholesterol lowering, arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, joint pain, lung congestion, and a whole slew of other inflammatory ailments according to many nutritional authorities. See this link:
Allot is being written today about inflammation and it's direct link to all manner of illness. Where you find inflammation, you find disease. This may be the natural alternative to chemical-based anti inflamatories? The clinical research available on the Internet suggests it might be......

Here we go again!
Another "miracle cure". In your backyard no less!
If I did not believe in nature's ability to mend and heal itself I wouldn't waste my time bringing this stuff to any one's attention.
Check out: www.CancerTutor.com
One entry that got my attention was on "Oleander soup".
I have Oleander bushes growing in my backyard in Austin, Texas so this stuff is literally free to me or anyone who can hop my fence and isn't afraid of my 100+ pound male Rhodesian Ridgeback, Petey (pictured above) They say on this website that this is a cure for cancer. I make no such representations. This is provided for informational purposes only.
Here's the recipe:
If it tastes anything like Essiac Tea, you'll gag swallowing it. I've found a pattern with most anti parasitic/ antimicrobial tonics. They taste awful. If you hate the taste, chances are the bugs that are living off your flesh will hate it as well.
In my next book,"Rich Remedies, Volume 2" I have a chapter dedicated to parasites. Can't wait to read it, can you? If you're travelling to Mexico or anywhere they have "cootie's" in the water supply, it's required reading unless you want to spend your trip on the thrown (el bano).
PS- "Signing Rich Remedies, Volume 1" this weekend at the Keep Austin Bizarre Xmas Bizarre at the Palmer Events center on Barton Spring Road next to the Long Center. Be there or be square.

I couldn't agree more. AIDS is no longer a disease of promiscuous adults. AIDS infects innocent babies, blood transfusion patients, and unsuspecting partners of AIDS carriers. Only morons are saying that AIDS is God's punishment for homosexuals. It is a disease that has no boundaries and takes no prisoners. We need a cure, now.
I suspect that like cancer, a natural cure is probably right under our noses and we don't even realize it. Here's one possibility that's worthy of consideration.
In September I was in Sedona, Arizona at the Raw Spirit Festival to sell my book "Rich Remedies Volume 1, My Amazing Natural Self Healing Discoveries". As luck would have it (or fate), my book shipment never arrived so I had plenty of free time to wonder around the conference and check out interesting natural healing remedies and vendors. See my previous blog on Raw Spirit Festival.
An Amazing remedy that I stumbled upon at the festival that could have a huge impact on the treatment of HIV AIDS, Hepititis C, Malaria, and many other pathogenic- based disorders is MMS discovered by Jim Humble in the misquito infested jungles of Guyana on a gold mining expedition. Jim contracted malaria in the jungle and quite accidentally cured himself of the dreaded disease using a common disinfectant Chlorine Dioxide.
My "discovery" was a random visit to an exhibit selling a liquid called "MMS" which stands for Miracle Mineral Solution which is simply Chlorine Dioxide, a well-known sterilization solution that has been in use for years cleaning hospitials and was used to decontaminate buildings that were exposed to the anthrax biological warfare agent by terrorists after the 9/11 attacks in 2001. So this is a proven sterilization compund for external applications.
Recently (during the past 3 years), Jim Humble has tried it on Malaria patients and HIV/ AIDS patients in East Africa with good results. It has even been used on Cancer patients in Sonora, Mexico (see link below). It seems to work. It kills pathogens and cleanses mico toxins from the bloodstream while leaving healthy healthy cells alone.
Read the whole MMS story here:
Read MMS client stories and testamonials:
Is this a "cure" for HIV / AIDS?
I don't know. Does anyone else have any better ideas? Let's find out.
Read Jim Humble's books and decide for yourself.
PS- Jim Humble is living in Mexico due to concerns that US Authorities will arrest him for his pioneering work with MMS. There is allot of money at stake here.

The whole AlternativeCancerCare.Com website is chocked full of really eye opening information.

I had never heard the term until last week when I visited the 5Focus fitness studio on my trip to Seattle.
Kinesis is a circuit training methodology using exercise equipment that was originally designed in Italy that arrived in the US in the past 2 years. I liken it to a combination Bow flex, Nautilus, and Pilates all wrapped into one. There are also floor exercises and stretching routines that are done as part of the Kinisis 45 minute work out.
In the Kinesis class that I participated in, there were five(5) Kinesis wall-mounted stations consisting of cables connected to weights. Each station focuses on a different muscle group with a full range of motion exercise. It kind of reminded me of Bow flex with the simultaneous combination of resistance and stretching movements.
The floor exercises included lunges, squats, bends, leg exercises,and stair stepping movements that in combination had my thighs and glutes burning.
A personal trainer choreographs the entire session barking orders and keeping time. In our case "Coach Kitty" cracked the whip to insure that no one slacks off and the full circuit of exercises is completed in the allotted 45 minutes.
The Kinesis routines emphasize flexibility, balance, strength, and cardiovascular fitness.
You might think that doing 2 hours of exercise in 45 minutes is the lazy person's route to fitness. You would be mistaken. If you do the exercises faithfully, you are physically spent after 45 minutes.
I highly recommend trying this fitness solution as an alternative to the standard gym workout experience.`

Did you know that silver heals?
As a part of my on-going exploration I am continuing to play with natural compounds that I think will beneficial to my self and extended family.
Colloidal Silver is one that I came across years ago that I heard had great promise but I never obtained enough detailed information to compel me to study it and try it out on myself until now.
Colloidal Silver is the next "miracle solution" I am working with in my backyard laboratory on Cuernavaca Drive :-)
Silver has been known for centuries as an antimicrobial agent. In the olden days they would place silver in jugs of water to prevent it from spoiling on long treks.
Pioneers on wagon trains were said to suspend silver tableware from strings in their water barrels to keep their water clean and potable.
Silver has been used for years in water filtration systems to kill bacteria, molds and viruses. So using silver for healing applications (like allot of this holistic healing is not new). People are just rediscovering it and technology is improving the delivery of it.
The technology for delivery of silver has come in the form of advanced colloidal silver generators which amounts to placing silver electrodes connected to an electric power source into distilled water. When the elecricity is turned on, the silver atoms give up an electron and dissolve into the water as positive ions. This is colloidal silver. It is minute particles of silver suspended in water. The quantity of silver in the solution is minute.
Through special laboratory processes, the silver is produced in the form of tiny nano-sized particles of elemental silver that can be easily absorbed and carry an electrical charge that zaps bacteria, molds, viruses, fungi, and other pathogens.
It is taken sublingually (under the tongue) for best absobtion or can be swallowed as well, but is subject to dillution from digestive processes in the gastrointestinal tract. It can also be taken transdermally (applied to the skin).
It has been used for burns, antimicrobial treatment, and other immune-system boosting applications.
There are said to be no counterindications and it works synergistically with antibiotics.
Check this out with the guidence of your healing coach. It has great healing potential, especially in these days of antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria.

President elect Obama, Godspeed! You'll need it.
I am hoping that your administration moves to the center and recruits the best bipartisan minds in the country for cabinet positions. I also hope that bi-partisan politics returns to Washington after decades of non productive devisiveness. That's what you have promised, please deliver.
I voted for John Mc Cain. He ran a weak campaign and could not match Obama's charisma and youth. I like John Mc Cain and wish him well.
The Obama election was a referendum against the old guard and the old-tired corrupt ways of politics. Let's hope Obama can rise above the loathesome mistakes of the past. If he doesn't, he will be out of office in 4 years. The American people demonstrated in this election that they are sick and tired of being exploited by the monied interests and the "bought and paid for politicos".
Good luck Barack!
PS- I'll be sending a copy of Rich Remedies, Volume 1 to the White House. It will be waiting there when you arrive on January 20th, 2009. It will be the best piece of mail in the White House mail room.
PS PS- Rich Remedies, Volume 1 is now available at Book People, Austin, Texas.

The "Pain body" is the term Echart Tolle refers to in his best selling book, "A New Earth, Awakening Your Life's Purpose ". It is a condition that Tolle says is cultivated by the egoic self to fulfill perceived need to be right. The Pain body is the part of us the gets offended by the smallest slight, insult, or perceived affront to our dignity. It is the part of us that vigorously defends our "dignity" against a usually imaginary foe in the name of "righteousness". It feeds on itself constantly and is the source of most of the conflicts in the world. The need to be "right" and protect one's dignity.
Many Philly fans have a huge "pain body" (present company excluded). If you don't believe me, wear an opposing teams hat, sweatshirt, or jacket and make eye to eye contact with a Philly fan. If that does not instigate a comment, climb as high in the stadium or arena as you can and chant "Philly sucks....Philly sucks....Philly sucks..."
If this activity does not evoke the collective pain body from the local populous, the building you are in is empty.
I have seen people liteally thrown down a flight of stairs in the stadium for loudly rooting for the opposing team.
Philadelphia is a city that sits midway between the financial and political seats of power in the US- New York City and Washington, DC. You drive through Philly or take the Metroliner to get to the other two places, where the BIG decisions are made. In Philly, we're "tweeners" and sometimes just a little defensive about the importance of our city as compared to the other two. Some folks have a chip on their shoulder.
Philadelphia is a huge sports town. We are the best fans and we are the worst fans.
We have huge "pain bodies". We need a winning sports franchise bad. It's been way too long since we have gotten bombed at a victory parade. The mummers parade is an excuse to get inebriated, but that's diferent. It's not a sporting event.
If you are a professional athlete in Philly and play hard, win, and are accessible, we love you. If you are a slacker, make allot of money, lose games, and are aloof......watch out. You will be run out of Philly on a rail. Many an athlete has had to lick their wounds from being on the receiving end of the boo birds and the sports media who stirs the pot of controversy at an athlete's expense On a slow news day if there is no controversy, the press will create some.
Philadelphia fans have been starved for a championship. The last time the city had a championship was in 1983 when the 76ers won the NBA title. Before that it was 1980 and the Phillies World Series Championship. My favorite team, the Eagles haven't won the Super Bowl since 1960! There wasn't even a Super Bowl back in those days.Quarter century, no winners. You'd feel pain if you were us....
Philadelphia has had to watch New York (Giants/ Yankees) and Washington (Redskins)win several championships during the past 25 years, while getting close ourselves, but never able to close the deal. If you want to stretch further up the railroad tracks to Boston, we've had to watch the Red Sox win 2, the Patriots win 3, and the Celtics win one in basketball during the past 25 years. Why not us? Is the collective refrain. Why can't we bring a championship to the city? Is there a jinx?
Well, finally the Phillies broke the Karmic ice....now we need an Eagles NFL Super Bowl victory to fill us up. Maybe in 2010? The pain body has been thrown a tube of Polish kielbasa to chew on for a couple of months to satiate it. On second thought- make that a Jim's Cheese Steak with extra velveeta, fried onions, sweet peppers, ketchup, salt, and pepper. To go.
PS- What's this have to do with Natural Healing? I guess there is some connection between the "pain body and eating Philly Cheese Steaks?

The Internet is full of Law of Attraction and manifesting wealth experts/ coaches.
I met THE MAN in this area on Saturday, Joe Vitale, author of "The Attractor Factor" amongst many other titles. Parked in front of the store Rancho de Luxe in Wimberley, Texas that hosted a book signing for Joe was a brand new Rolls Royce luxury sedan that Joe purchased, priced in the range of a cool $400,000 (pictured here). This is "exhibit Z" in a long line of demonstrations that his methodology really works. He even conducted his first "Roll Royce Mastermind" brainstorming session in the car on Friday night while driving it through the Texas Hill Country.
This exotic luxury liner was purchased a few weeks ago when it was clear that the global stock market was in a free-fall, the subprime mortgage securities market had infected every economy around the world, a recession is in full swing, and the worst decline on Wall Street since the crash of 1929 that started the Great Depression was in play.
My point here is not to applaud conspicuous consumption, exotic luxury goods, or any of the baggage that gets attached to being wealthy in the present economy. The point here is that we all have the ability to overcome the economic mass-media mass hysteria by disconnecting from it and choosing prosperity consciousness over scarcity consciousness. Joe's act is symbolic. He's sending the signal to the Universe that he is not going to play the game from a fear consciousness position, but from an abundance/ prosperity consciousness vibe. He is giving FEAR the one finger salute here. So should all of us!
Joe in defiance of this global mass hysteria, went ahead with a huge luxury goods purchase without a second thought. This is because he has incredible confidence in his ability (everyone's) to continuously manifest wealth with deliberate Intent. This goes for health and happiness as well.
Let's face it, it is not all about money. But money is the energy that enables us to be free to do good works and help others in need rather than be preoccupied with paying the rent. It's not about greed, but the ability to be prosperous and generous at the same time.
Joe has written about this ability and demonstrated it in life multiple times and offers template for how he does it in the "Attractor Factor".
I gave Joe a copy of my book "Rich Remedies, Volume 1" for inspiration that I received from two of his other books "Zero Limits" and "Hypnotic Writing" as well as a larger body of work that he has created.
Three (3) signed copies of "Attractor Factor" were purchased for my wife Linda and my children Scott, Emily, and Christian as well as another friend. I highly recommend this book.I am reading the book for the second time. Check it out.
PS- It's not about being rich for money's sake but about having enough to be comfortable and give to others.

"You mean to tell me, Doc, I'm getting better, esentially taking nothing?"
To quote myself in "Rich Remedies, Volume 1, My Amazing Natural Self Healing Discoveries"http://www.iuniverse.com/Bookstore/BookDetail.aspx?BookId=SKU-000062621
"All schools of medicine work at some level, including the “placebo effect” where a patient is given a sugar pill, instead of real medicine, then gets better just because she believes she is better, even though the pill she is taking is a blank. This is the power of “Intention” which is: If you believe in the cure, you increase your chances of getting better tenfold. The placebo effect, although scorned by many in the medical establishment is actually the most powerful natural remedy there is. There is nothing more powerful than your mind when it comes to healing yourself."
I was right! Except that I did not give doctors enough credit for issuing blanks to thair patients.
I guess a retraction is in order. I said that the medical establishment scorns the use of placebos. I am dead wrong. They use them 50% of the time! I'll fix this when I sell out the curent 10,000 volume book run I've got going:-) :-) For the full story browse National Institutes of Health- Placebo or use this link below.
Link to story:
Reasons given for doctors issuing blanks are:
>Get rid of the patient- throw them a bone so they'll leave the doctor's office
>Patient insists on getting a prescription
>Nothing else worked on a patient, so try a blank
>Parent needs to see their child being treated with something/ anything so placebo is given to make them happy
It's all in the mind, isn't it?

The Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers Band had some incredible concerts together back in the early 1970's. This scribe is dating himself here with this blog post. Time to take a teaspoonful of resveratral anti-aging tonic! (No kidding, I will when I'm done typing this)
I'm not sure who I'm voting for in the Presidential Election. Maybe I'll toss Ron Paul, Independent Candidate from Texas a protest vote? At least he has some fresh ideas. Enough politics here.
In the early days the Allman Brothers Band played fund raisers for Plains, Georgia's favorite son, Jimmie Carter (Billy Carter's Brother) and actually helped get him elected. It also helped with the sale of the cult beverage "Billy Beer". I'll cesase with repeating ancient history and with all political discourse.
PS.- Early reviews of my book Rich Remedies, Volume 1, My Incredible Natural Self Healing Discoveries are quite good. Pick yourself up a copy if you are so moved at: http://www.richremedies.com/
PS. PS.-No portion of the proceeds from the sale of my book will be donated to any political candidate, but some will be contributed to the Austin Children's Shelter and the Make A Wish Foundation of Central and South Texas.

I do all the work now maintaining our community plot at this beautiful, historic garden spot in Austin. The garden is worth the effort. Mayfield Gardens are located at 35th and Mt Bonnel Road. Check it out! Koi ponds, Flowers, Peacocks, hiking trails, and serenity all within the Austin City Limits.

So you can imagine that the prophesy of the Sacred White Buffalo imbues these amazing creatures with incredible energy and hold spiritual significance to people who believe in the legend.

I was driving down Route 180 from Flagstaff, Arizona on my way to the Grand Canyon with Pat Metheny's live CD "Travels" (recorded in Philly, I was there at the concert) blaring on the car stereo when I blew past a general store on the side of the road that said "Jerky for Sale and Sacred White Buffaloes".......I kept driving and then something told me to stop, make a U-Turn and go back.

I am at the Raw Spirit Festival in Sedona where I am working a booth with one of my suppliers, EM America. My book, Rich Remedies is ready and available on:
You need to buy this book now to avoid the rush :-) :-) :-)
I was to be signing books, but they are being printed in Tennessee as this blog is being written so, no soap radio. I'm here shaking hands and kissing babies instead. It's nice to be in Sedona under just about any circumstances.
At the Raw Spirit Conference, which is about raw vegetable diet and green living, I have concluded that I don't even register on the "crunchy" meter at all. This crowd is very much a Grateful Dead Concert, bohemian group. They're fun loving free spirits. Friendly, earth -conscious, and out to have a good time. Refreshingly, there are no presidential politics or campaigning going on here that I could see. This is about sustainable living, personal health, and connection. Everything I embrace.
It does make for great people watching. I'm probably as square as they come at this Festival and I consider myself pretty progressive. Not "crunchy" enough. I think I need dreadlocks, tatoos,
and my tongue pierced. I'll need to collect some book royalties before I get this makeover.
I met some interesting people who will potentially collaborate on my upcoming volumes in the Rich Remedies book series.
More on the Raw Spirit Fest, Sacred White Bison, The Grand Canyon, and more.....stay tuned.

The other thing that I'm testing Is Brain Balance and Regeneration. This is a proprietary mineral formula containing Orbitally Rearranged Molecular Elements (ORME's). I know....it's easy for me to say. :-)
It sounds too good to be true:
>Brings the heart, mind, body, and soul into harmonic homeostasis and a higher level of consciousness and spirituality.
>Higher energy level for peak physical and mental performance.
>Enhance interconnectivity of the nervous system and connective tissues.
>Tranquility, serenity, and optimism.*
Wow! I want some more of all of this. I can't wait to see and feel the results if this works as advertised.
I'll give you an update later this month. I'm going to try to meet the manufacturers in Sedona, Az
this weekend and get the skinny on all of Sacred Health's products which sound pretty amazing.
Keep you posted.
PS- I will be in Sedona, Az at the Raw Spirit Festival this weekend. It should e very interesting. I shall send a dispatch from Sedona with a full report.
PS. PS.- See richremedies.com for other useful information.......
*These descriptions came from the Brain Balance & Regeneration packaging. The product is made by Sacred Health, Sedona, Az.
Note: Alcohol consumption will reduce the effects of this supplement.....

This is a sappy (cheesy tourista) photo of me with a squirrel monkey resting on my crown chakra in a plaza in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico (on the "Mayan Riviera"). I'm sure that's not how the Mayans referred to this beautiful area on the Yucatan Peninsula, but I'm told it's a good name for tourism purposes. My daughter Emily is next to me with a monkey on her shoulder.
I am wearing a baseball cap, so I think that I am safe from "monkey business." :-)
The tie-in with the monkey resting his furry ass on my head is a humorous metaphor I heard that compares a busy mind to a nervous, out-of-control monkey running/ climbing / swinging to and fro nervously. Like a fearful and angry mind churning up all sorts of bad out comes. Running in circles. Pointless worry.
In reality, 90% + of the bad things you worry about never happen. Think about it.
To this point, last year I went to a book signing featuring: Wake Up Now, A Guide to the Journey of Spiritual Awakening by Stephan Bodian. The author said that when he was learning to meditate as a young Buddhist monk, the abbot in the monastery would describe the busy, wandering mind as a "monkey mind". A lower primate mind out of control. Not capable of being quiet or centered due to preoccupations.
It's true. If you watch what's going on in your mind when you are worrying, it's usually circular thoughts making up and creating outcomes that usually do not materialize.
I'm trying to refine and quiet my monkey mind, and I'm making progress. My wife and children need some more work.
I've been lecturing my wife and children recently on the need to calm their minds and limit the amount of small stuff that they complain and worry about. So the message that I try to convey (to reduce stress and worry) is to focus on the 90% that's going right and deal with the 10% problems the best you can,with a feeling of optimism that things will in the end turn out OK.
Why do I blog on this ? Because it is my belief that 85% illness is rooted in stress which is rooted in fear and anxiety of some kind. If you can quiet your mind, you can reduce allot of stress and lead a happier and healthier life. It's very often not just what you are eating....but what is eating you.
" The point of spiritual awakening is not to maximize your assets and minimize your losses, but to be free of attachment to gain or loss and to be peaceful and joyful in the midst of whatever life brings."
Words of real wisdom.
"Feed that monkey in your mind a peanut and let him go on his way"
PS- This is my Internet version of my day standing in Speakers Corner, Hyde Park, London, delivering my philosophy of life to no one, save a few pecking pigeons (Mediterranean rock doves), a rat and maybe a squirrel or two.
PS.PS,- Rich Remedies, Volume 1 is finally being printed. Had I let the monkey mind get the best of me during the past 2 years of writing this book, it never would have come to fruition. At several intervals I thought I'd never finish.......it's now just a week away.

As all of these healing things go, I heard about Diamataceous Earth 2 times in one week after never hearing the term before, so I'm on to something here.
Diatomaceous Earth is a fossilized deposit of microscopic shells created by one-celled plants called Diatoms. These plants are found in both salt and fresh water. Like plankton, Diatoms serve as the basic food for aquatic life, just as grass is the basic food for land animals. The "secret sauce" in Diamataceous Earth as I like to refer to key healing ingredients is silica dioxide, a trace mineral that is said to be one of the key building blocks of life. I have never heard this before so I'll do more research, but it sounds promising. Another interesting claim for Diamotaceous Earth is that the tiny shell fragments cut the skin of intestinal parasites (worms), injuring them and eventually killing them, without causing harm to your body. It is said that 85% of the human population is carrying some sort of intestinal parasite in their body. Parasites cause all sorts of nasty problems and have even been linked to certain cancers so getting them out of your intestinal tract is a good thing. Some parasites will escape into other areas of your body and even your blood stream, destroying tissue.
Suppliers make food grade Diatomaceous Earth that is fit for human consumption. I am using it in my smoothies to try it out. The lab rat strikes again.
I am providing more coverage of this fascinating discovery in Rich Remedies, Volume 2.
Now, I get excited that I just discovered Diatomaceous Earth, but this stuff has been used by veterinarians for years, especially in horses, so I'm not breaking new ground, just waking up to something new. However, if I take a poll of non-horsey people, I bet that less than 10% have heard of this Diatomaceous Earth. Have you?
PS- If I like this stuff, it will be available on http://www.richremedies.com/ in the near future.

My son got a paying summer job at Chick-filet. Since he's 17 years old, I can not in good conscience give him the Porsche to drive as he may wrap it around a tree like I would have at his age. Best to give him the air conditioned, "safe" car. So I get to drive the "hot car", literally.
I've also gotten very used to driving the Porsche on a daily basis. I've wanted a motorcycle for quite some time but don't have parental approval to move forward with the purchase so my 1985 bare bones 911 edgy and primitive- by -2008- standards Porsche is as close as I'm going to get to a motorcycle right now. And if you're on a bike, you have to experience the elements.....the heat.....you've got to bake. So I'm baking, but not biking yet.....Speaking of baking......I have some really cool EM•X® Ceramics products to share.........
EM•X® Ceramics are baked at high temperatures. Pictured here are Ring Stone Ceramics, EM Ceramic Jewelry, and EM Cellular Stickers made from Effective Microorganisms with Magnetic Wave Resonance. There is also EM Sea salt in the photo.

According to EM America Product Catalog 4th Edition:
EM•X® Ringstones:Work by absorption and emit far-infrared rays, ultrasonic frequencies that cleave (adhere to) impurities from liquids, resulting in smaller water molecule clusters. I don't know what this means, I just like the way water tastes after a ringstone has sat in it for an hour.
EM Cellular Stickers: Smooths out electronic waves (EMF's) helping to minimize their negative effects. I put them on my cell phone and laptop computers.
EM Ceramic Jewelry :Protects wearer from Electro Magnetic frequency Waves and also adds far-infrared wave energy benefits to the blood as it circulates past the ceramics. I wear the ceramic jewelry around my neck.
EM Sea Salt- Contains trace minerals and combines them with enzymes and amino acids making this sea salt unique and bio-available.
I use all of the EM products and believe that they are beneficial to me. Check with your healing coach to see if they might be beneficial to you.
