Acne Part 2

podcast of May 4 here

the following are my notes – just use ’em to follow along while you listen

2 cups of milk of choice
1 teaspoon Turmeric
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
Pinch of black pepper (increases absorption)
Tiny piece of fresh, peeled ginger root or 1/4 tsp ginger powder
Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)

blend all ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth,
pour into a small sauce pan and heat for 3-5 minutes over medium heat until hot

Almond Milk with Saffron & Cardamon

Soak 10 almonds overnight in water. Grind saffron with mortar and pestle. Add saffron, a pinch of ground cardamon, almonds and 1 cup of your choice of milk in a blender and puree. Boil, stirring constantly to prevent the milk from sticking to the pan. Pour into glass and add honey.

Arthritis part 2

WATER – drinking lots is a great idea

Colour Therapy of course extends out beyond coloured lights, which is what a Colour Therapist would use to your clothing, the foods you eat, even your bedding
why not solarise some water? use gel filters of indigo or blue

Gem or Crystal Therapy



Copper is one of the most famous remedies for arthritis, joint and bone pain. Copper bracelets have been worn for centuries to help improve circulation. Now, copper infused supports are very popular.
Eilat Stone derives its name from the city of Eilat where it was once mined, it is a green-blue inhomogeneous (that means not mixed) mixture of several secondary copper minerals including malachite, azurite, turquoise, pseudomalachite, chrysocolla
Eilat Stone benefits sinuses, mouth, bone and tissue regeneration.

Magnetic Hematite, Magnet Therapy – underlays with magnets –  can increase blood flow and circulation and this is how it can help speed up the healing process and alleviate pain. Try a neck massage with a pair. They can also be directly bandaged onto an affected area or onto acupressure points.

Fluorite benefits the teeth and bones. People with arthritis, rheumatism, or spinal injuries have reported relief from their conditions when they employ fluorite in their healing regimen. Fascinating! Fluorite is of course the mineral form of Calcium Flouride !

Blue Lace Agate is known for treating removing blockages of the nervous system and treats arthritic bone deformities. Take a bath for 15-20 minutes with this stone in the bath water.

– Apatite

Acne

inflammation as well, this time of the skin – often can be a hormone imbalance issue

sleep deprivation can be a contributor – regeneration happens when we are asleep!

too much cleansing/exfoliating  can also be a contributor
