Practical Nutritional Articles - about healing physical, emotional and energetic imbalances and your inner terrain

Your body is an amazing eco-system of intricate, interdependently functioning organs - physically emotionally and energetically.
We work with your imbalances. We look at indications as to why your inner terrain is functioning the way it does and how it can possibly be improved.
We do not deal in fixing symptoms, rather the underlying reasons that you have symptoms and analyze the cause(s). 

We view as a priority: the deficiencies you may have; the stimulation of internal key processes that you may need; the dys-regulation of your extra-cellular matrix (the milieu / terrain, in pleomorphism).

We view your body as:

  • an energetically open system that is brilliantly capable of self repair when given the right support
  • an incredible system effecting all cells and the nervous system
  • often dealing brilliantly in spite of man-made factors that can have a negative effect, reducing the matrix’s self-regulation ability due to:
    1. chemicals and toxins
    2. accidents
    3. e-smog and geopathic stresses
    4. lifestyle and diet deficiencies
    5. psychological / emotional shocks, unresolved long-standing conflicts and unresolved emotional disturbances

“If I could live my life over again, I would devote it to proving that germs seek their natural habitat - diseased tissue that needs healing - rather than being blamed and the cause of the diseased tissue itself; eg. mosquitoes seek stagnant water, but do not cause the water to
become stagnant”
                                   Dr. Rudolph Virchow (Father of Pathology)

Did you know?

  • red blood cells turn over every 100 days or so and the white cells, neutrophils, every seven days like clockwork
  • skin cells slough off every 7 days
  • GI cells replaced themselves every 5 - 7 days
  • fatty tissue cells replace themselves every 3 weeks
  • 600 billion cells die and replace themselves daily and without a thing we can do about it but cheer them on and support them in their brilliant work so as little as possible goes off the rails!

12 Points on Mercury Amalgam Removal Protocols
This article discusses safety and efficacy issues when deciding how best to approach the removal of mercury amalgam dental fillings - 12 Points on Mercury Toxicity by Dr Sir John Whitman Ray
1. Have an electrical reading of your amalgams done by a naturopath or dentist experienced in this area. An electrical current reading gives a general idea of the speed of electrochemical reactions occurring on the surface of the fillings. It also reflects the conditions that encourage conversion of elemental mercury into methyl mercury! The higher the negative charge, the faster the conversion rate... continues at

The Mind, Body, Mouth Connection
"A few weeks ago, a woman I knew, informed me that her bright, bubbly, 21-year-old daughter had been admitted to a psychiatric ward, suffering from depression, hearing voices and “disordered thinking”. Doctors usually just file these traits under “schizophrenia”. I found this more than a little odd, since this young woman had shown absolutely no psychiatric problems in her life and there was zero history of schizophrenia" ... this wonderful article by Bob Wallace continues at

the late Harold W. Manner, Ph.D., and G Edward Griffin on metabolic therapy and Laetrile
The late Harold W. Manner, Ph.D., coined the term "mbolic therapy" and is famous for his research of Laetrile. Abnormalities at the cellular level are diagnosed and then corrected by normalizing the patient's metabolism (including the removal of build-up of "toxiceta substances" in the body and strengthening the immune system, so the body can heal itself)... and this could include laetrile. He was interviewed in 1978 by Acres USA: more at

Brilliant Fluoride Research from Fluoride Action Network
 by Paul Connett PhD
Water fluoridation is a peculiarly American phenomenon. It started at a time when Asbestos lined our pipes, lead was added to gasoline, PCBs filled our transformers and DDT was deemed so “safe and effective” that officials felt no qualms spraying kids in school classrooms and seated at picnic tables. Loads of great research at

SOY LECITHIN: It Negatively Affects Your Health and Why You Need to Avoid It. Soy Lecithin has been lingering around our food supply for over a century. It is an ingredient in literally hundreds of proceesed foods, and also sold as an over the counter health food supplement. Scientists claim it benefits our cardiovascular health, metabolism, memory, cognitive function, liver function, and even physical and athletic perfomance.

MUSCLE TESTING Explained and Shown with Infintesimal Detail and Clarity - The NeuroModulation Technique (NMT) is a term used to describe a method that allows for direct communication with our nervous system’s Autonomic Control System (ACS). There are other ways of doing this by testing our muscles and they all have their own labels and in the end work in the same basic manner.

Jon Rappoport - Zika: the essence of the hoax: analysis
"I’ve written a number of articles taking apart the Zika hoax, piece by piece, lie by lie. Here, I want to present an overview. My analysis centers on two questions.
One: Is there a true “outbreak” of microcephaly in Brazil?
Two: Has the purported cause, the Zika virus, been established scientifically?
First, is there a surge of microcephaly in Brazil, where the story started?
That depends on who you ask. The Brazilian health authority, so far, has reported only 404 confirmed cases of microcephaly (babies born with small heads and brain impairment) in the whole country."

about Fertility with Susun Weed


I was very skeptical before the first session. It was a pleasure to have you take a close look at my “chemistry” and have another follow-up session with you and after following your advice from what you suggested in our 1st session many months ago, I was pleased to see evidence that my basic health is improved and only needs some more tweaking. I am so very grateful for your service, your kind heart, your vast knowledge and wisdom that you freely share.
