REFLEXOLOGY

REFLEXOLOGY – simple, gentle, yet extremely effective and can be performed just about anywhere.

“If you’re feeling out of kilter,
don’t know why or what about,
let your feet reveal the answer,
find the sore spot,
work it out.”

– Eunice Ingham

Reflexology is a gentle, non-invasive form of healing applied primarily to the feet; less often to the hands and ears. It is extremely relaxing and therefore a great tool for stress relief (physical and emotional stress). Reflexology deals with the underlying principle that we have reflexes in the feet (hands and ears) that correspond to every cell of the body. Working these reflexes stimulates the body by clearing blockages for example in the lymphatic, circulatory and nervous system. As a result reflexology is an effective tool for assisting a person regaining or maintaining balance.

Happy New Year!

The New Year is here
Let’s welcome it with a great cheer
Let’s raise our hopes in a confident toast
May love, peace and happiness spread from coast to coast

Life is like a gigantic and beautiful ocean
It can be calm and still but is always in motion
If the wind is howling and the seas are rough
We might feel lost and feel life is too tough

Always remember you have what it takes to fly
Just spread your wings and try
You have what it takes to fulfill your dreams
Stay true to your spirit and life will flow like a beautiful stream

May love, peace and hope fill the heart of every single soul
May tranquil moments bless all and keep our spirits whole
May humankind awaken and create many paradigm shifts
So that all spirits rejoice and undue burdens and challenges lift

The Earth, our Mother, needs our loving and caring support
Let’s re-connect so we may harmonize in accord
May healing of all aspects for all life become true
So our children may have a happy, healthy future too

January 2016, Gudrun Penselin

France Bans Cell Phones for Kids

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

CELL PHONES – PROTECT OUR CHILDREN

The digital age has created an epidemic of behavioral addictions in people of all age groups with the long term effects not yet fully understood.
To me the dependency on cell phones alone raises a lot of warning flags but specifically: the impact on a person’s physical health and the consequences of behavioral addictions. I am very concerned watching how the seeds for this type of addiction are planted as early as infancy while at the same time disregarding all the evidence of the detrimental health effects on the developing child.

France is taking a leading role in protecting the well-being of young children but way more needs to be done. 

In 2015 France passed the following law:

  • WiFi is banned outright for preschoolers. 
  • Wireless internet is prohibited in places dedicated to the welcome, rest, and activities of children under the age of 3 years old. 
  • At primary school level WiFi must be disabled when not in use for teaching and any establishment offering public access to WiFi must put a sign up at the entrance indicating the presence of WiFi.

With these restrictions, one can only wonder what they really know about the dangers of wireless technology!

France, September 2017

  • French Education Minister has touched off a public debate about banning phones in schools.
  • Using mobile phones in class is already outlawed in France.

First the French ban TV for children under three-years-old, now the French government is concerned about the negative health effects of mobile devices on children. From cancer to other diseases, cell phone use is especially dangerous to children.

“SWEDISH RESEARCHERS HAVE FOUND THAT CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS ARE FIVE TIMES MORE LIKELY TO GET BRAIN CANCER FROM MOBILE PHONES, CAUSING CONCERN THERE MAY BE AN EPIDEMIC OF THE DISEASE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE LATER IN LIFE.

The French response to this growing concern of the safety of cell phones for children is threefold:

  • NO advertising of mobile phones directed at children under 12.
  • BANS the sale of cell phones designed for children under 6-years-old.
  • Introduce new limits for radiation from the phones and require mobile phones to be sold with earphones.

The clampdown represents the most comprehensive action yet taken by any government worldwide. It contrasts sharply with the stance of British ministers, who have largely ignored the recommendations of an official report nine years ago that people aged under 16 should be discouraged from using mobiles, and that the industry should be stopped from promoting them to children. Since then their use by the young has almost doubled, so that nine out of 10 of the country’s 16-year-olds own a handset.

THE FRENCH MINISTRY HAS WARNED, “MOBILE PHONE USE IS INCREASING AT A RAPID PACE AMONG YOUTHS”, AND THAT YOUNG CHILDREN MAY BE “MORE SENSITIVE BECAUSE THEIR BODIES ARE STILL DEVELOPING.”

Other countries have also issued warning statements about the use of cell phones by children:

  • Toronto’s Department of Public Health: Children under eight should only use mobiles in emergencies; teenagers should limit calls to 10 minutes or less.
  • Russian Ministry of Health: Young people under 18 should not use cell phones.”

Ancient Grain, Seed, and Nut Loaf
from The Greenhouse Cookbook

Makes one loaf, or about 10 slices.

Ingredients:          

  • ½ cup raw sunflower seeds
  • ¾ cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup raw slivered almonds
  • 1/8 cup buckwheat groats
  • 1/8 cup millet seeds
  • 1/3 cup amaranth seeds
  • 1 ½ cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • ¾ cups gluten-free steel-cut oats
  • 1/3 cup whole flax seeds
  • 1/3 cup psyllium seed husks
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbs pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup virgin olive oil
  • 2 ¾ cups filtered water

 Steps:

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine and evenly spread the sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds, buckwheat groats, millet seeds, and amaranth seeds on the prepared baking sheet. Toast for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the rolled oats, steel-cut oats, flax seeds, psyllium seed husks, chia seeds, and salt.
  4. When the toasting seed mixture is golden, remove from the oven and add to the bowl of dry ingredients; stir until combined. Add the maple syrup, olive oil, and water to the bowl and mix well. We use our hands for this (wet them first). The mixture should feel quite soggy; the seeds will absorb more water as they rest.
  5. Line the bottom and sides of a 8- x 4-inch or 9- x 5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper. Pour the dough into the pan and shape the top into a smooth dome with wet fingers. Cover the dough with a clean tea towel or napkin and let it sit at room temperature overnight or for up to 24 hours. When you’re ready to bake, preheat the oven to 400 F.
  6. Uncover the dough and place the loaf pan on a rack in the centre of the oven. Bake for an hour and 15 minutes, or until the crust is dark brown and sounds hollow when you knock on it. (It may take an hour and a half, depending on your oven.) Remove loaf from the oven and let cool completely, at least 2 hours.
  7. Slice and serve toasted. Store in a sealed container in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.
