Was Moses the First Homeopath?

Joette Calabrese has become one of my favorite homeopaths. On her website, joettecalabrese.com, she defines homeopathy as:

Homeopathy (pronounced hoh-mee-op-uh-thee) is a holistic system of medicine that treats disease by stimulating the body’s own healing processes.

She also notes homeopathic remedies are non-toxic, side-effect free and inexpensive.

Another one of my favorite homeopaths is Dana Ullman. In the video below, he describes the steps Moses took when He came down from Mt. Sinai and found the children of Israel worshipping the golden calf. It’s pretty amazing to see this practice goes back thousands of years and we still use it today.

Foundations

When a contractor builds a house, he knows the importance of having a good foundation. Building on a weak foundation can cause problems from cracks in the foundation and walls, doors getting stuck or not closing properly, kitchen cabinets separating from the wall, gaps around the windows and sagging floors. Over time, the house will become weaker and will eventually fall apart.

Our bodies need a proper foundation as well. If we don’t take care of our bodies, we, too, will eventually fall apart. The good news is, if we take care of our foundation, everything else has a better chance of functioning properly and providing us with health and quality of life.

Our foundation has six elements. Each part of our foundation has an impact on our pH and our overall health. Our pH is how fast or how slow our digestion is moving. If it moves too slow, constipation can become a problem. This can cause the toxins in the stool to be reabsorbed by the body. If it moves too fast, our bodies may not be able to absorb and use the vitamins and minerals being put into our bodies. This can eventually cause malnutrition.

The foundations of good health are:

  • Nutrition
    • Eat real food. If it fell from a tree, grew from the ground, ran through the fields, swam through the ocean and flew through the sky, it’s real food.
    • Eat non-GMO. Because the DNA of genetically modified food has been altered, our bodies are not equipped to digest it. We do not have the digestive enzymes we need to break down the foreign material.
    • Eat organic to avoid pesticides and other chemicals that are poisonous to our bodies.
  • Hydration
    • Your body uses water in every chemical process.
    • Drink 1/2 your body weight in water to see an increase in potential energy.
    • Fresh fruits and vegetables increase your hydration and are a great source of usable material.
  • Movement
    • Movement is for so much more than burning calories. It actually aides in detoxifying the body. Sweating is one way our body eliminates toxins.
    • The lymphatic system requires movement and becomes stagnant and unable to move the chemicals surrounding our cells without it.
  • Sleep
    • During sleep, the body repairs, recovers and detoxifies.
    • 7-9 hours of continuous sleep is recommended.
    • Throughout the day, the body naturally becomes acidic. It relies on sleep to alkalize it for the next day.
      • With reduced sleep, our bodies will remain in an acidic state. This state leads to inflammation and potential physical dysfunction.
  • Elimination
    • The elimination pathways are vital to allow the body to release toxins
      • Bowels
        • Intestines, liver, gallbladder
      • Urinary
        • Kidneys, bladder
      • Lungs
        • Lungs, circulation of oxygen
      • Lymphatic
        • Lymph and white blood cells
      • Skin
        • Skin and the coordination of the circulatory system for sweating
  • Stress/Emotional Wellness
    • Reduce stress as much as you can!
    • Emotional stress, including trauma, heartbreak, accident, PTSD
    • Physical stress
      • Food Choices
        • Chemicals in food, additives, preservatives, food dyes, palm oil, BHT, high fructose corn syrup, etc
      • Environmental
        • EMF emissions, herbicides, pesticides, toxic people, etc.

What’s the Dill?

I have been looking forward to growing herbs in my kitchen window forever. Thanks to my crafty fella, my window still is finally big enough to hold my jars.

After about a week, I’m finally seeing green. Here is my dill. Fingers crossed that I don’t kill it between here and pickle time.
