It’s been a while since I’ve been in touch, and I wanted to give you some important information about something that’s been on everyone’s minds - the flu - but even more importantly, what you can do to minimize the risk without harmful vaccines.
The actual risk is much smaller than is being reported, but it’s still wise to keep yourself as healthy as possible - The best defense against infectious disease is a healthy immune system.
The focus is commonly on “the germ” reponsible for a particular illness, but it’s just as important to look at why your body might be willing to play the hospitable host!
And in many cases, flu-like symptoms are NOT caused by Influenza, but by many other possible factors - a release of unexpressed emotions; or a detoxification process; a flareup of a chronic illness, among others.
Most of my readers already are aware of the devastating effects of conventional vaccines - my website contains numerous articles on that issue, including many links to excellent websites for more information.
But what can you do in a positive way to strengthen yourself against illness in general?
You can improve your Regimen - nutrition, exericse, sleep, etc. - lifetyle factors that can be adjusted to shore up your life energy.
We have “Four Cardinal Points” of Regimen -
- Nutrition - the proper nutrition for you as an individual - there are no “one-size-fits-all” diets.
- Hydration - consuming the proper amount of pure water and enhancing your body’s ability to utilize it
- Dormition - proper sleep
- Recreation - including proper movement (”exercise”), and activity that engages your creative energy
Now, “proper regimen” might evoke images of a harshly disciplining boot camp… but true regimen is far from that - it’s a structure and support for your own internal bodily wisdom to develop its capacity to direct your choices.
It’s not a “no pain no gain” type of discipline, but a gentle nudge to reawaken your own instincts for what’s truly nourishing and health-promoting for you. Your body wants to be healthy and just has to be retrained to provide you with more reliable signals.
Do check my website for many newer articles on a wide variety of related topics.

I’m sure you’re aware that there are many dimensions, many levels of reality that we engage when we approach healing. This is so fascinating to me, and I’d like to share some further thoughts.
Sometimes we talk about a great technique for preventing and getting rid of dental plaque that can make a huge difference in your oral health and save teeth. Other times we talk about the deep emotional patterns that can keep you stuck in a chronic health condition, and how to become more conscious of those patterns so you can release them.
Some people prefer to work on the pragmatic side of things; and for others, it ultimately becomes most practical to work on the side that’s more difficult to access and more challenging to face, the emotional/spiritual side. Usually the best approach is an integration of both.
Personally I have felt at times that I needed a quick fix to “put out a fire” of an acute situation. That situation might have a proximal cause like “lack of iron.” But there may be deeper reasons why the body isn’t utilizing the iron it has, and then simply supplying more iron won’t work - we need to look to a deeper level of function and a deeper cause to remedy the problem.
But each person has their own unique path, and what one person needs to experience in order to heal can’t be compared to what another needs to experience.
In many areas of natural healing, when teachers or practitioners haven’t resolved their own emotional issues, often they displace their own self-expectations onto others, and admonish people about what they must do in order to get well. Your intellect might agree and say, “Sure, I know I need to do that.”
But what often happens is that your unconscious is rebelling against this kind of controlling dynamic, which is felt as a threat or a lack of support in some way. Unconsciously you are feeling railroaded, admonished, or guilted, and not in resonance with this injunction about what you must do - because your inner wisdom knows it’s not what you need right now, even if your intellect thinks so.
This is one of the important reasons why individualized guidance can be so helpful. You can get loads of great ideas about “the best new antioxidant” or “the best detox program.” No one needs my services to find out about the zillions of products that are on the market.
But do you really know that a particular product or program is what you really need at this time, and what your own body/mind is going to resonate with and make use of, safely and without causing more imbalances?
The choices that will really support your health, and not just temporarily cover up symptoms, require more than an intellectual, linear approach.
Health is more than biochemistry. Each person has a biochemical individuality - that’s complex enough! But also the blueprint for the biochemistry is the level of energy, the soul/spiritual level, and everything that manifests on the physical level has its seed in the soul/spiritual level.
That’s why we work on all these levels to get to the root of the problems and to support each level in its re-adjustment to a healthier condition.
Even dental plaque isn’t just about an imbalanced biochemistry!
But at a higher level it’s about emotional armoring - the emotional blockage we create in order to prevent the radial energy of the life force from expanding too much, when there is a held emotional pattern of fear. The emotional armoring has its counterpart on the physical level often as muscular tension, and/or dental plaque - there are many ways the armoring can manifest.
So for example, I teach people about oral hygiene (the kind that really works safely, not the conventional dogma), and about diet and nutritional supplements to rebuild the body and remineralize the teeth, but also about the emotional issues that can be blocking the healing process.
Healing can be complex, but doesn’t need to be complicated. There are many facets, many dimensions, but a rational program can be devised that honors your completely individual path and doesn’t leave your unconscious inner child throwing a tantrum!
Many of you are aware that I’m an advanced student of medical Heilkunst, and for anyone who is interested in learning about that system of medicine, I can introduce them to the principles, in email consults. All the consulting services I provide are really informed by the Heilkunst view, which is the map of the territory that an individual needs to cover in order to be well and whole.
Here’s some news about my website - The free articles are now organized on the main navigation menu, so you can find them easily, under specific topics. When you click to expand the Article menu, you see all the topics, and then when you expand a topic you see all the titles of the individual articles within that topic.
I hope this makes it easier for you to find the articles you’re interested in - there are now 80 of them, and I hope you spend some time with them and enjoy!
And remember, I’m still offering a free email consult with no obligation to continue.

Heilkunst is the complete system of therapeutics developed by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann 200 years ago and furthered in our time by the Hahnemann Center for Heilkunst. It means “the art of remediation,” and includes the systematic removal of the blockages to our life force – blockages which are the roots of our illnesses.
Homeopathy is one small part of this elegant system. Heilkunst also includes the correction of various imbalances, using diet, nutrition, and many other methods from the natural health field.
Conventional medicine concerns itself with symptoms and tries to eliminate them without addressing the real causes. That allows the underlying causes to continue their course, while creating iatrogenic (doctor-caused) disease in the process. Heilkunst works on a deeper level to remove the actual causes, without harm. Then the symptoms and conditions clear up as their causes disappear.
We heal only according to laws of nature. When the proper treatment is given to clear a particular disturbance, according to natural law, then your own inner healing power can complete the rest of the process. After that, people usually experience a greater sense of vitality in various ways.
To begin Heilkunst treatment, the practitioner will ask you to provide a chronological history of the emotional and physical traumas you’ve experienced throughout your lifetime. It’s not necessary to share the details of what happened, but just the events and how you felt about them. The treatment targets these traumas and removes them sequentially, according to precise principles.
We use remedies that are commonly known as “homeopathic,” which have undergone extensive clinical testing and are published in compendiums called materia medicas or pharmacopoeias. They are safe and can effectively reach to the deeper energetic level where the traumas are lodged.
Other aspects of treatment also help to strengthen your resistance to disease, shore up your life force, and provide some relief from symptoms in the meantime while the deeper issues are being addressed.
Through your interaction with your Heilkunst practitioner, you’ll learn to navigate and understand the course of your personal development. No matter what your health challenges are, Heilkunst treatment can remove the disturbances that block your full potential, to restore you to wholeness, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
The benefits of Heilkunst treatment can include:
* Relief from both chronic and acute illness
* Improved energy
* Improved immunity and ability to resist disease
* Improved sleep
* Improved relationships with yourself and others physically, mentally and emotionally
* Improved outlook on life and the world around you
* Improved ability to manage emotions and conflicts
* Decrease in stress and anxiety
* Increased sense of inner strength and wellbeing
* Increased sense of connection with your creative energy and your life’s deeper purpose and direction
