Mother was at the post office the other day speaking with our local Postmaster about natural therapies, (we both come from backgrounds of natural therapies for whatever ails you), and she was explaining a treatment she knew of where, when everything just gets to be too much, either emotionally or physically or the stress is exhausting you and keeping you from being able to think, simply lie down on the ground face down and feel the dirt…just…feel…the…dirt…, and after you have relaxed and soaked up the earth you have let go of all the troubles and now you can go back and deal with whatever was driving you crazy. See….it is much easier now……
…..And it put Mother in the mind of macrobiotic treatments she had read about of old, where you should walk around on the earth barefoot everyday (for at least 30 minutes), for those who are ill as well as those who are not.
This is soaking up the minerals from the earth into your body through the skin on your feet. Those minerals maybe you are not getting anywhere else, like from your food?….
Homeopathic remedies are also from the earth in a way because they are grown in the soil of Mother Earth and she takes very good care of the plants that she grows. Then these plants can be used by the people who know how to make them into Homeopathic Medicine. Natural Remedies made from Mother Earth have been used by all indigenous civilizations throughout all time. What else did they have?
When a relative-by-marriage of Mothers was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, he told her that the doctor had asked him, “How many fruits and vegetables have you eaten from the store that were not washed before you ingested them?” Interesting question….Yes that is right…there are plenty of pesticides and chemicals on the food. Should we be eating the chemicals too?
One would wonder why the doctor would ask this particular question? What did those chemicals put on the vegetables and fruits to preserve them until they get to market have to do with Parkinsons Disease? Doctors know things they cannot talk about. Well whatever those chemicals do, it must be a bad thing.
We need to stop GMO food and get back to nature and grow our own vegetables in our yard and be healthy again, without all the preservatives and other chemicals they need to put on the grocery store vegetables and fruit to keep them good for the 3 months of transport.
When Mother was still taking treatments for the illness she had, the doctors and the nurses told her to go to the ocean (obviously, if she lives on a boat there is an ocean around here somewhere) and get in it as much as possible to soak up the electrolytes from the ocean water, to replace what the treatments were depleting from her body. Electrolytes just like in Gatorade, only the ones in the Ocean are natural…
There’s an idea! And she said it was exhilarating!
