Little article I wrote for natural news to spread my love for hydro! Alternating Hot and Cold Showers :)
AN AMALGAMATION OF WISDOM from the scientists & shamans, the healers & herbalists, the sages & stargazers, and the mages & mavens of the NOW
Entrepreneurial mycologist Paul Stamets seeks to rescue the study of mushrooms from forest gourmets and psychedelic warlords. The focus of Stamets’ research is the Northwest’s native fungal genome, mycelium, but along the way he has filed 22 patents for mushroom-related technologies, including pesticidal fungi that trick insects into eating them, and mushrooms that can break down the neurotoxins used in nerve gas. How about fungi in place of vaccines??
There are cosmic implications as well. Stamets believes we could terraform other worlds in our galaxy by sowing a mix of fungal spores and other seeds to create an ecological footprint on a new planet.

I have recently started a series of paintings cataloging the history of natural healing. I am trying to touch upon all of the doctors who pioneered naturopathic techniques, natural living, and medical philosophy. Starting us off is the father of medicine himself, Hippocrates. I hope everyone enjoys. Check back here as I will be posting more paintings very soon.
“Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease.”

Not only is licorice an adaptogen and strong anti-viral, but it can also be used specifically in the treatment of Barrett’s esophagus….

Check out my newest article for Natural News- demystifying fevers and explaining how and why they are healing process the body is designed to go through and NOT a symptom that needs to be suppressed. This is an issue fundamental to naturopathic philosophy, to support the body in its healing process or turn off the symptoms? Parents, patients and doctors need to understand the difference. After provoking discussions in multiple classes last week, I was inspired to share the message
“One of the biggest misconceptions in health care today is the role of fevers. Through misunderstanding, many parents fear fevers, when they should love and respect them. A fever is one of the most extraordinary and intricate healing processes in the body. It plays out like a symphony, orchestrated only when needed to stimulate an immune response, destroy invading organisms and promote the restoration of health. The American Academy of Pediatrics voiced concerns in a 2011 study, concluding that parents need to understand the fever itself is not endangering to a healthy child. In contrast, it’s actually beneficial and the primary goal of treatment should be to improve comfort, rather than lowering body temperature alone….”
This past holiday season, I wanted to make my friends and family something infused with love to last them throughout the year. I decided to make a few things…salves- one for the ladies and one for the fellas, dream pillows and oatscrubs.
Yes. These are are HUGE problems faced by the medical community but little does he know, he is really just preaching core naturopathic philosophies…
