FOOD FOR THOUGHT - MONKEY BUSINESS

“The further society drifts away from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.” – George Orwell

Surprised that we are facing the next global health crisis?

Would  you be surprised to find out:

•  that our government posted a request for tenders for the development of a “jab” relevant to this current “outbreak” PRIOR to the announcement of the first case of the monkey business? (see link below)

•  that over one year ago (March 2021) there was an international bio-security conference in Munich where participants held a table top simulation of a global pandemic involving this latest disease that is apparently spreading across the globe? According to the conference’s published schedule of future events the first case was to be reported mid May of 2022. Co-incidence? (see link below)

Remember the importance of educating yourself outside of mainstream media and that the emotions of fear and anger are strong suppressants of our immune system.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT - POWER GRAB BY THE WHO?

“The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants.” – Albert Camus

Did you know that in less than two weeks there will be an important vote at the WHO that, if passed, will have far reaching consequences for our future? The International Health Regulations amendments could literally end national sovereignty.

As always, I encourage you to educate yourself and come to your own conclusions. For more information on this and other topics, follow this link. https://rainbowhealing.ca/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/2022-05-14-Attachment.docx

Finally the trees are starting to shimmer green and the frogs are croaking, announcing the late arrival of spring

Have a Wonderful Mother’s Day

FOOD AS MEDICINE

HE THAT TAKES MEDICINE AND NEGLECTS DIET, WASTES THE TIME OF HIS DOCTOR. – Ancient Chinese Proverb

Summer is a great time to re-assess one’s diet and cultivate new eating habits by adding more fresh, organic vegetables, herbs and fruits to the daily diet.

If you have not yet watched the documentary: FORKS OVER KNIVES, I highly recommend, you do. This film presents evidence for the fact that most degenerative dis-eases can be controlled or even reversed with a plant-based diet. The film is very well done and worthwhile watching.

ONE QUARTER OF WHAT YOU EAT, KEEPS YOU ALIVE. THE OTHER THREE QUARTERS KEEPS YOUR DOCTOR ALIVE. – Egyptian Proverb

HOPE

“Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tunes without the words and never stops at all”.  – Emily Dickinson

Hope is an essential element in any form of healing. Dr. Edward Bach said to never take away from anyone the hope for healing. I am hoping, wishing and praying that this year more and more people will re-connect to nature, so that Mother Earth will receive the much needed support for her healing. Everyone of us can make a difference. Let’s shift our focus to things that really matter and what life is truly about.

Rosehips High in Vitamin C

Rosehips are from the Wild Rose (Rosa canina). They are especially high in vitamin C but also contain vitamin A, B1 and B2 in the pulp. Vitamin C was first discovered in Rosehips. Long before the discovery of vitamin C Rosehip tea was used for the common cold and locally for inflamed and bleeding gums.

Most animals are able to manufacture their own vitamin C but because of a lack of a major enzyme in the human liver, the human body is unable to manufacture its own vitamin C. This is why we need to ensure adequate vitamin C intake through our diet or supplements. Rosehips also help to maintain healthy collagen, the substance that holds trillions of cells together in our body.

ROSEHIP TEA

Following are two of my favourite ways of preparing Rosehip tea:

1. My preference is to make a cold infusion and let it sit over night or at least a few hours before straining it. Cold infusions have the advantage of preserving the mineral content provided by the herbs.

2. Make a cold infusion and then slowly bring the infusion with the rosehips to simmer to make a decoction.

For instructions of the different water extractions such as cold infusions and decoctions I suggest you refer to disc 1 of the DVD “Herbal Pharmacy for Everyone”.

🌱 A Morning Meditation
🌱 How to Create Your Own Flower Essences

An award-winning author, speaker, teacher, and expert in herbal medicine, Gudrun has over 30 years of experience as a complementary health practitioner.

In her practice and teachings, she uses a holistic approach to wellness combining healing modalities such as herbal medicine, Bach Flowers, connecting to plant spirit, reflexology, iridology/sclerology, light/colour therapy and lifestyle improvement.

In November 2018 she shared her passion in a TEDx talk, Flowers that Heal Us, in Wilmington, Delaware, US.

Gudrun graduated in Germany with a M.Ed. and M.Phys.Ed.

After her immigration to Canada in 1981 she focused her education on complementary medicine and as part of her journey of life long learning she graduated as Clinical Herbal Therapist from Dominion Herbal College in 1996.

Her commitment to the Earth and humankind prompted her to create several publications.

She is the author of award-winning books Healing Spirituality – A Practical Guide to Understanding and Working with Bach Flowers (Winner), Healing with Bach Flower Mandalas (Finalist) as well as the executive producer and co-creator of the instructional DVD Herbal Pharmacy for Everyone, A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Your Own Herbal Preparations.

She also created the card deck Bach Flowers Unfolding.

Her deep interest in learning about other cultures and their healing traditions led her to travel to many places across the globe, including India, where she was fortunate to spend some time with Mother Teresa.

More recently, her travels have taken her to Central and South America, where she focused her attention on some of their traditional forms of healing.

As a natural educator, Gudrun brings joy whenever she shares her knowledge and experience about plants and their healing spirit. Her clients see her as a compassionate professional, mentor, and friend.
