"Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams"
I love this quote. I would change only one word --bumble bee to honey bee. Life is beautiful. Life is magical. Life is alive. I do not think we notice how beautiful life really is. I was walking into Roosevelt Hopsital the other day, and I stopped to look at the Tulip Trees. How magnificent!
Sitting in a park allows you to notice the children, the animals, the trees and small plants. You are connected with nature. In the last 10 years I have noticed nature more and more. I would say that focusing on the beauty of nature allows me to be more peaceful and serene. I live on a beautiful island which is part of NYC. It is Roosevelt Island located just adjacent to Manhattan Island. There is a long row of cherry blossom trees called "Cherry Tree Walk". You already missed the April 11th tour, but come see these trees. The light pinkish cherry blossoms, somei-yoshino are blooming. Soon the deep red ones, yae-zakura near the 59th Street Bridge will open. All of the cherry blossom trees were presented from Japan. Open your eyes....and see!
So you want to clean your slate. You can do it with a Detoxification protocol. There are many detox protocols given out by integrative doctors. Some of them work and some do not. Some of them such as a Master Cleanse will work but not many individuals can drink 1 gallon of salt water, lemon, cayenne and strap B molasses. There is the fat flush program also.
Then there are countless detox programs on the internet or in the hundred and one newsletters you receive. Everyone touts their own.
I do not !Many of used the Hu-Mana Tea, a formula used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
I know patients who have used this formula during their bout with cancer and even as a preventitive. I have seen remarkable results. I did not know what the protocol name was but I knew the herbs in the protocol as these 4 herbs are commonly known Western Herbs.
1. Slippery Elm (Ulmus rubra )
2. Burdock Root (Arctium lappa)
3. Sheep Sorrel (Rumex acetosella)
4. Turkey Rhubarb (Rheum officinale) In Chinese, "da huang"
The three herbs other than Slippery Elm are Old World Medicinal Plants.
Only one of these herbs is mentioned in James Duke's Medicinal Plants from the Bible:
"The fourteenth day of the second month at even they shall keep it, and eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs." Numbers 9:11 (KJV)
"And the cattle and full grown asses cultivating the ground will eat fodder seasoned with sorrel." Isaiah 30:24 (NWT)
Dosing depends on weight. Also the herb Burdock can cause nausea. Usual dosing is about 3 ounces per day in 2 divided doses. You can order the formula from http://www.humaworm.com/ or as separate herbs from http://www.mountainroseherbs.com/
