What’s Your Face Telling You?

A Picture Paints 1,000 Words

Marlenea La Shomb, ND
September-October 2018 • Vol 3, No 100

In life I have found keeping it simple and finding what works best for you are most beneficial when working to move forward through challenging situations, whether mental, emotional, or physical, since they are all tied together with one affecting the other.

Over the years, I have met some people with a very strong sense of smell and taste, disliking pure essential oils. For that very reason, they can also have a dislike for stronger tasting foods, like raw garlic, onions, lemon, ginger, cayenne or turmeric, herbs and herbal remedies (tinctures), teas and have never gotten used to the benefits due to the taste. Adding to that, some cannot swallow tablets or capsules, making me wonder, what can I recommend to these people that they will actually take?

Feng Shui—The Joys of Fall

with a Qigong Lung-Clearing Exercise

Michele Lewis
September-October 2018 • Vol 3, No 100

As the warm days of late summer pass into autumn, nature is making her perennial transition from the yang months of spring and summer to the yin months of fall and winter. This change will be intuitively felt even before the Autumnal Equinox on September 22nd, as nature begins her transitions deep in the earth long before we see those changes visibly manifest. All of these shifts become more apparent with the increase in yin energy. Each passing day has less and less light, as the hours of light continue to get shorter. We feel this in our bodies and emotions; the organ associated with fall is the lungs and the feelings are sadness and grief. If our bodies or environments are not balanced, we will feel these emotions on a greater scale.

So what can you do? From a Feng Shui perspective, the area of the bagua that aligns with fall and the organ of the lungs is the NW sector of children and creativity. As the yin months progress, it is time for us to move more inward and do something to nurture our inner child and ourselves. The I Ching trigram is tui, it’s feeling being joyful and pleasurable. This is the time to do things that will bring you inner joy and boost your sense of creativity. Try taking classes where you are making or building things with your hands, cooking, painting, sculpture, or anything that makes you feel true happiness inside.

Who’s our Tribe in This Day and Age?

Time for a Global Perspective

Catherine Nelson, Ph.D.
September-October 2018 • Vol 3, No 100

Somewhere deep, very deep inside us is a need for safety in our lives. Perhaps it is in our DNA from living thousands of years on planet Earth. We believe that our safety is determined by our family and our “tribe.” Our ancestors survived trusting that membership in the tribe would help to keep them safe from harm, from attack, from hunger, and so much more—and it often did.

Strangers were suspect. They might be enemies, invaders, or potential conquerors capable of causing the death and destruction of our loved ones. The strangers might have looked different. Maybe they spoke a foreign language, dressed strangely, or had different values. In essence, the thinking was: if you don’t look like me, or talk like me, or believe as I do, then you are my enemy.

Dirt First!

The Garden/Farm Revolution

Marlenea La Shomb, ND
September-October 2018 • Vol 3, No 100

Following the natural cycles and seasons of Mother Nature, autumn is a time of layering her debris left behind from the harvesting of the fruits of her labor. This ground debris sits under winter’s blanket of snow, which for me last year began the first week of September. The breaking-down process utilizes soil microbes, turning vegetation back into soil for next year’s plant growth. Mother Nature is very efficient—she recycles everything. (See “The Humic/Fulvic Missing Link: It’s in the Leaves!” NLND Jul–Aug ‘16.)

The dirt beneath your feet is the key foundation to future healthy plants—and for us as we eat them.
I chose this natural method of mulch gardening years ago. I then combined it with the layered, “lasagna” and straw-bale methods. (See “Straw Bale Gardens—Breakthrough Method,” NLND May–June ‘15.) The mystic Anastasia, in The Ringing Cedar Series, also agrees with the natural layering process, reminding us that our planet Earth responds well to being worked, touched and caressed by loving human hands, using small hand tools. (See “Ancient Wisdom for Planting Seeds,” NLND Nov–Dec ‘17.)

Roasted Whole Celeriac

with Coriander and Olive Oil

Janice Feuer-Haugen
September-October 2018 • Vol 3, No 100

Perhaps you’ve begun noticing a strange rather alien looking vegetable appearing at your local supermarkets and farmers’ market. Some of you may even have received a few of them in your CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) box. If that alien vegetable looks anything like this photo, what you have, dear friends, is a celeriac, also known as celery root. Two popular ways of preparing celeriac include peeled, grated and eaten raw or peeled, diced and cooked with potatoes and mashed.

Today I offer you a third way inspired by Israeli-British celebrity chef, Yotam Ottolenghi. And now I, too, both suggest serving the celeriac unpeeled and roasted whole with coriander and olive oil. Try roasted celeriac as a meal in itself, serving it straight from the oven for dinner or from the fridge the next day for lunch. Whether hot or cold the flavors are perfect together. The celeriac richly flavored and luxuriously tender, the oil flavorful and the burst of flaky salt addictive.

Herbs: The Root of Medicine

They Work Much Better in Their Whole State!

Crystal Maceira, Master Herbalist
July–August 2018 • Vol 3, No 99

I have been a Master Herbalist for over 35 years and have seen much good in herbs. I personally have benefited from their use, which has kept me from getting sick, by using the Formula KVA, for instance, because its main herb is Garlic. (I even hugged friends of mine who had the West Nile Virus!) I have healed sprains, cuts, big open wounds (on my previous husband) and so much more.

I have seen people healed of many diseases using herbs, along with dietary changes.
I personally make many herbal formulas and single herb tinctures, several of which I use. The favorite ones I am taking now are Turmeric and Boswellia for arthritis. They both help inflammation in my joints. I also use a couple of salves (Hot Tamale and Comfrey) on the clients I massage and personally on an old injury.

Herbal Detoxification

The Body’s Power to Heal Itself

Elaine Rylin
July–August 2018 • Vol 3, No 99

Excerpts from The Essiac Report: Canada’s Remarkable Unknown Cancer Remedy:
“Chemotherapy and radiation are, for the most part, indiscriminate killers. Skeptics conclude that, in most cases, these “therapies” are no better and sometimes much worse than the actual disease.

An alternative is the Native-American formula for Essiac Tea that consists of 4 or 5 herbs (see illustrations below). It’s a simple, inexpensive, highly effective and natural approach that has no side effects and is available to everyone. For over a century, detoxification programs using this tea have restored health to thousands of cancer victims.

EFT—Relief Is Just a Few Taps Away!

Emotional Freedom Techniques

CJ Puotinen
July–August 2018 • Vol 3, No 99

Can tapping on acupuncture points really change a person’s life? Twenty years ago, when few Americans had heard of energy psychology and its methods for redirecting the body’s energy, those claims raised skeptical eyebrows.

Then EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) burst on the scene and in record time, people around the world reported amazing results in their efforts to lose weight, stop smoking, improve in any sport, get along better with others, alleviate stress, improve vision, eliminate pain, reduce allergic reactions, overcome anxiety, recover from illness, have more energy, make more money, and even relax and enjoy public speaking, America’s number-one phobia.
