- Sacred Sex and Woman Herbs5 y
Someone gave me a R alert for something I said in my blog. That’s very nice. A few of my blogs (actually a lot of my blogs) have gone by the wayside. I’ve been so busy but I think I will resurrect someone of them.
It’s a conincidence that someone would read my blog at a time when I picked up the Sacred Woman/Heal Thyself book again. My fibroids have not grown but I do continue to get breakthrough bleeding. I’m attempting to regulate my periods, heal my fibroids and eventually get pregnant through regular sacred sex. Besides when a woman sets out to have babies she should prepare herself ... read more

- One Love Womb Tea- a country remedy for uterine trouble7 y
It is a master remedy for uterine trouble. Taken up till the first day of the period, it gets a sluggish uterus going. I remember giving this to my mom when she had fibroids. It shrank hers so fast, one actually ruptured! The gynae surgeon was amazed actually. I wish my mother didn’t have her uterus removed but I think she still has her ovaries. Anyway, my period is finally coming down. I will drink the Womb Tea one more day when the flow really gets going I’ll stop. Womb Tea should not be consumed during full on menses.
There’s really no place to get it on the internet. I paid 10.95 a ... read more

- It's been a while but...7 y
I am paying the price for straying from womb healing principles. I’ve not eaten meat in quite a while...almost a year I think. Don’t miss it but I’ve been eating a lot of dairy products. My period is late and either I’m pregnant or I have a fibroid. I believe the second is more likely as I already took a test and it was negative. If I do not get my period after this first round of womb tea, I will retake the tests again. It’s practically impossible for us to get pregnant because we are very conservative in our practice of NFP but you never know. According to my PMS journal, my last few spo ... read more

- Heal Thyself and Queen Afua7 y
Before opening the Smai Tawi Heal Thyself/Know Thyself Center, Queen Afua, herself had followed the path less traveled-of ancestral healing and transformed her own life. Sick and tired of being sick and tired, she went on a healing retreat.
”At the age of eighteen I was filled with dis-ease. I was suffering from chronic asthma, hay fever, and arthritis,” she explains. On this retreat, she discovered the connection between what one eats and one’s state of health. For three days she fasted on citrus fruits and healed herself returning home renewed, which inspired her to study holistic hea ... read more

Yeah so I had resurrgence of binge and purging this weekend. I am.. or I was under tremendous amount of stress. I’ve dialed it down quite a bit talking to my fiance.

Yes I’m back to fasting again. Master cleanse for two weeks. I need everyone’s support. This is the only one I will be doing before my wedding. Starting tomorrow. Right now I’m making my tea then I’m going to do my bikram yoga workout and pilates. Not doing this weight loss AT ALL. That’s what distracted me the last time. This is about cleansing from the inside and out, getting ready for marriage and in the near future...pregnancy! Stay tuned.... visit the page

- The deed is done!7 y
I had my pap smear today. The speculum was quite painful and I felt as if I was losing my virginity all over again. Terrible. Also, I had a battery of STD tests as well. I’m on the track towards more raw foods. Right now I am focusing on exercising and the exercising is doing the trick. I’m not thinking consciously about diet but focusing on exercise. My blood pressure was 99/70 this morning. They didn’t take my weight. If the tests are abnormal, they will send me a letter next week. The doctor told me it takes a week for results to come back in. I am not worrying AT ALL. I have a peace th ... read more

- Between fast exercises7 y
I had two glasses of juice with bee pollen and psyllium husks in the second glass. I’m going to pick up this fast again in two weeks since my last fast was nine days. I don’t want to overdo it, even though I screwed up. Yesterday I was very emotional :( I’m no where near that emotional today BUT I do realise that I can gain back the ten pounds I lost if I’m not careful. I’m hitting the gym before I go over to my mother’s job. It’s GORGEOUS outside so I’m going to get some exercise by cleaning up the kitchen and geting outside into the garden. It’s gardening time and being around nature alw ... read more

- Fasting Anew:Self forgiveness7 y
There are ten days in the Master Cleanse. I screwed up today in the midst of a temporary PMS depression. I’m happy that I made this far. I’m disappointed in myself or WAS disappointed. I just opened Heal Thyself to the chapter where Queen Afua talks about forgiving ourselves when we mess up and to GET BACK IN THE GAME. Thank GOD, thank you Lord, that I have my fiance to cheer me up. Queen Afua says don’t let temporary setbacks ruin the path of purification. I’ve been to the fasting and purification mountaintop and I don’t intend to allow myself to get in my way. Did that make sense to you? ... read more

- Fasting- day ten observations7 y
I’m ready to get off this fast *LOL* I switched to molasses during the course of the fast for two reasons. The maple syrup was too costly and also the molasses has more minerals and iron and today is the first day of my period. I didn’t get as tired as I usually do BUT yesterday when I got home I just went to lay down. I slept till about nine and then went back to sleep at eleven. Even though I had let my dog out at around one, I’m not tired now. I’m not even putting molasses in my first glass lemonade, it’s actually lemon and kombucha tea. I’ve lost ten pounds on this fast, I’m now 147 do ... read more

I’m glad I quit coffee before I decided to fast. I do believe it made a difference. I have not had any coffee cravings except for yesterday. I saw the Starbucks and wanted to go in and get a coffee and scone. That’s my automatic response to stress. I’m happy to say I didn’t cave in and try to park in that murderous traffic of NYC. Thank God it was on the other side of the street :D I didn’t realise how much FOOD is a part of my life till I stopped eating it. I obsess about it. I even think of eating raw sandwiches *LOL* It’s totally mental you see. This is my fourth day of fasting and the ... read more

Well folks I finally went to get a gyno visit. I had to drive to the Bronx which took FOREVER from Long Island in the city traffic. The parking was terrible because of the side street parking rules for snow removal. I arrived at the doctor’s office for my 9 am appointment and the facility was CLOSED *LOL* Anyway, it opened a few minutes late and the waiting room was well...freezing and extremely unappealing. The television was on and I found myself glancing at Entertainment Tv about the Oscars. I’m so glad I had earplugs with me because I tuned out the unimportant lives of hollystars and r ... read more

- My Lemonade Diet7 y
Today is my second day on the lemonade diet. I am also drinking a glass of kombucha tea a day and utilising the Flora Rene Caisse herbs as well. I had some mild healing crises today, a mild hunger pang at work and a headache. When I got home, I went to bed and rested and it went away. Drinking the Caisse herbs helped because the herbs are potent detox herbs. My brain is doing some heavy duty offloading of caffeine, heavy metals,etc. and earlier the headache was annoying. It made my eyes feel like eye strain. Oh well it’s over now and I have energy to move some paintings for my mom and writ ... read more

- Good Morning Sacred Women and Heal Thyself Devotees7 y
I pulled everything out of my room last night and guess what I found while sorting through all my books? My copy of Heal Thyself. Recently I’ve been reading Sacred Woman and this is a great find, also an omen of things to come. I know that when I practice yoga and focus on my practice, I feel very good. For some reason the tree pose makes me feel like a goddess and all I want to do is have babies *LOL* Maybe this is why Sting has six children and has delivered a few of them too!

Just say no to the premise of this article! Hogmaws, chiterlings and all the rest are SLAVE FOOD!!!

Yes I am doing it again. I’m not giving up. By God’s grace I will succeed this time. I’ve just made my Smooth Move tea and now I’m enjoying a cup of my homemade kombucha tea. I am substituting the maple syrup for agave nectar. It seems as if sugar is a major trigger for me and I don’t want to ruin it.
The kombucha tea gets better and better. I notice it takes a few batches for the babies to start coming in nice and thick.
I’m going to be focusing more on the Sacred Woman side of Queen Afua’s teachings. I’m also be doing some posting on my new natural womb blog because her specialty i ... read more

- End of Sproutman Wheatgrass journey7 y
I purchased a tray of wheatgrass during my last days at Whole Foods. The juice was okay BUT my first tray of homegrown grass has reached maturity, past the first jointing stage. It’s WAY greener than the tray I bought and thicker. I remember trying to grow wheatgrass in the health food store and it came out really whimpy and yellow. There was no sunlight really. This tray I have now sits by my dining room window near the radiator and it took all but a week to grow after I let the seeds soak for a day. It took about two days for the seeds to sprout in the dirt.
Yesterday, I did four ounc ... read more

1 Wheatgrass Juice is one of the best sources of living chlorophyll available.

3 Wheatgrass juice is a crude chlorophyll and can be taken orally and as a colon implant without toxic side effects.
4 Chlorophyll is the basis of all plant life.

Now that I have plenty time on my hands, I can devote myself to intensive study of Queen Afua’s principles of health and wellness. I just juiced some wheatgrass about two ounces with cayenne pepper. The key is drinking it slowly and drinking lots of water beforehand.
I woke up this morning not looking good at all. I had to drop my sister to work and did so without complaint. On my way back, I drank some of the distilled water I got from Associated. I felt ten times better. The pain is almost gone from my body. Now I’m going to lay down and listen to my Proteus mind machine. I am going t ... read more

- Stirring Up a Hornet's Nest8 y
Well my post yesterday on this blog has stirred up an emotional/mental hornet’s nest. Yes this happens when you set your foot out on the healing path of purification. You have to see and smell the stench of the wound and pus when you lance it. I feel that I’m coming face to face with all my hangups, jealousies and fears about body image and size, also appearance. This is just the beginning of course. I was reading about abstinence in Overeater’s Anonymous but there’s a part of me that can’t go there yet, same with fasting. It’s just like drugs. Food is a drug for a lot of people. I don’t w ... read more

I had an amazing thought about weight loss and purification this morning. How many people, especially women, are not ready for the change in appearance that happens when you fast,purify and lose weight? I looked at myself in the morning this morning and I look very different than I did when I was fifteen pounds heavier. It’s not the same ME. I definately don’t look the same as I did when I was 190 pounds. How many of us have our self esteems and appearance intimately intertwined? I watched one episode of some show that had women lock themselves up for four months. It’s obvious none of thos ... read more

According to the home page of 43 things where I list my goals, there are just thirty days till the New Year. http://www.43things.com/
I am making fresh water a priority in my house for these thirty days. I am going to be running on limited funds till Christmas so I’ve committed mysel to purchasing a case of spring water (and hiding it in my car!).
It is very easy to cleanse and purify oneself on a limited budget. Granted one may not be able to buy organic vegetables but I’ll be avoiding the most sprayed crops anyway.

This is a tonic I just made this morning.

I drank this and feel good. This is the week for my period so who knows what’ll happen.

Another suggestion is gota kola tea to wake up the mind (I prefer the extract drops in some water). QA suggests mixing tablesoons of blackstrap molasses for a good ’morning coffee’.
Complex proteins like soya meat, beans, peas, lentils, fish and nuts, complex carbs, or a raw salad. Don’t drink liquids during the meal.
