CORONA VIRUS

Tired hearing about it? Worried about it?…

CORONA VIRUS - Tired hearing about it? Worried about it?...

The best defense against any so-called invading organisms is a strong immune system. Keep the terrain, your body, strong and it will ward off potential dis-ease causing critters. Tend to your body like you would to a garden, nurture it with the nutrients it requires to grow and stay strong and healthy. Eat organic foods, stay away from fast foods and processed foods, eliminate sugar etc. See below for more information. Please contact me, should you be interested in herbal remedies or a consultation.

It is hard to understand, why there has been no mention in the media about some common sense measures, that are simple and effective.

A few days ago, I listened to a medical doctor on the German news. He said, that he would be more afraid of the regular flu than the Corona virus.

EXAMPLES OF LIFESTYLE CHOICES TO KEEP YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM FUNCTIONING AT TOP PERFORMANCE LEVEL

  • Ensure adequate rest and sleep
  • Eat a diet of high nutritional value (no junk foods, avoiding allergens and toxins)
  • Reduce/eliminate all refined sugar (refined sugar suppresses the immune system instantly and long-term – it really is an addictive substance that messes with our brain and overall health!)
  • Eat (local) honey; honey has antibacterial properties and can be a good source of antioxidants
  • Garlic: chop up a clove at night and swallow after supper
  • Add the JUNGLE JUICE to your daily routine
  • Follow a regular exercise regime
  • Spend time outside even if it is for short periods
  • Minimize/eliminate stress factors as much as possible
  • Dress according to the weather
  • Be conscious of bringing joy into your life – whatever this may be for you
  • If available, make use of an infrared sauna frequently (one of my favorites)

Even if you should get sick, following the above guidelines will allow your body to bounce back more easily.

WILD ROSE – My Favourite Recipes for this time of the year

Have you noticed the abundance and colour variations of the Wild Rose flowers this year?

They are so bountiful and a delight to all of our senses. You might have noticed that a lot of different insects use the flowers as their home or resting place.

Wild Rose is also a Bach Flower essence, opening the heart and bringing joy into a person’s life.

Here are two of my all time favorite recipes.

1. WILD ROSE FLOWER WATER

Pick some flower petals and put them in a glass filled with spring water. Let sit in the sun to allow the essence of the flower to infuse into the water. Let sit for 1/2 hour to several hours depending on your taste preference.

Enjoy as is or with some ice. If you wish, you may eat the flower petals.

2. WILD ROSE FLOWER HONEY

Pick the flower petals and place on the honey. Honey that has not been processed is typically hard so you need to soften it slowly at low temperature. You can soften it first and then mix the petals into it, or what I do, I add the petals and let them do “their job” while the honey is softening.

Once the honey is soft, I like to stir the petals in with a wooden chop stick only to watch them come up to the surface again after a while. You can pick out the flower petals if you wish but you can also leave them in the honey.

Enjoy as a spread on a rice cake, on pancakes or with ice cream, or just straight from the spoon – whatever your heart desires.

PEACE BEGINS WITH A SMILE

As the seas of the world are rough right now
Let’s remember to build bridges, not walls.
Let’s sow seeds of hope, peace and love.
Let’s foster kindness, trust and tolerance.
Let’s remember that each one of us can make a difference.

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.  – Mother Teresa

Happy New Year & Green Blessings,

GREEN LIGHT for the 3rd Annual TEDx Wilmington Women’s Conference!

Check it out here https://bit.ly/2ON4VBC

Some people were asking where Wilmington is. Wilmington is in the state of Delaware, about 40-50km south west of Philadelphia. This means, it will be a long day of travel to get to the event, which gives me plenty of time to rehearse my talk in my mind. All this is so exciting and nerve wrecking at the same time.

My hope and goal for this event are that my idea worth spreading will touch many people’s lives, provide support for the ailing Earth and truly make a difference for years to come.

Thank you again for all your kind words and support.

Green blessings,

Gudrun

BACH FLOWER WORKSHOP in VANCOUVER, October 10, 2017

While in Vancouver for a guest speaking engagement at Boucher Institute of Natural Medicine I am also offering a workshop at the clinic of Dr. Marisa Marciano. Thank you Marisa! Hope to see some of you there! Looking forward to a great experience.

The Herb Walk a few weeks ago was amazing!

 Thank you to all of you who attended and made the day such great success. We spent all day outside and even prepared the Jungle Juice outside. I wish I could offer a second herb walk this year plus one for children but unfortunately my schedule is too full right now. The manuscript for the companion book to “Bach Flowers Unfolding” is in the hands of the graphic designer giving me a bit of a breather. However, preparations for a book signing/workshop tour in Ontario in September are in full swing. While travelling East I will also be teaching at the IHA (International Herb Association) in Michigan followed by a guest teaching engagement at Boucher Institute, School of Naturopathic Medicine in Vancouver in October.

Green Blessings,

Gudrun
