Although this case has been going on for some time, and despite the fact that I have received emails regarding this I lacked the resources to investigate further so I am pleased to be able to post this video which gives an insight into the case of Grandma B. (Not a youtube video so please klick the link).


This has to be shared  – and saved on the blog for future reference. Inspiring interview with a cancer patient who had been abandoned by the medical profession because they had nothing left to offer. Palliative care was all that was available. Fortunately, this lady took control of her life and took steps to turn her health around. The images speak for themselves. Another reason to take charge of your health.

There’s no quick fix. It is about lifestyle changes and good food. Is that really such a price to pay to save your life?

Be well.

If you have checked out the internet for nutritional information and advice, you will probably have noticed how much of the information is completely contradictory. Where do you start? In my case I was already reading labels to avoid additives as I had noticed years ago that junk food caused migraines. That is one piece of advice I feel it is safe to pass on to anyone: Dump the junk. We really are what we eat. How is your body to function properly when it is constantly having to try and rid itself of toxins instead of using the energy for healing? Above all many junk food ingredients are born in the laboratory. Does that sound compatible with natural physiology? Our bodies are just not designed to cope with these ingredients, which are usually decidedly lacking in nutritional content. It is second nature to me to scan labels for ingredients. Yet I find that many simply take things at face value.

I was offered ‘Water with just a hint of fruit juice. Really, there’s nothing in it.’ Despite the hype on the bottle, the label revealed that it contained a lot of junk. Sadly this lady could see no issue and was convinced she was consuming a healthy drink. If you purchase an item bearing claims of healthy, low-fat, low sugar etc etc BEWARE. Even when there are claims such as: contains no GM, no artificial flavouring and no trans fatty acids, it is still essential to peruse the ingredients because you may well find that it does include artificial preservatives and sweeteners etc. These guys are clever. They react to the most recent headlines and make sure that they can boast that their products are free from these items. Who said they wanted to make it ‘healthy’? And anyway, what is healthy? That description should be banned from processed foods IMO.

I use no ‘ready’ products and purchase as much locally-produced, naturally grown products as possible. Even what is available in ‘health’ stores requires careful checks. Especially if it is part of a US-based chain of stores, selling US products. Remember that GM (genetically modified) foods are not labelled in the US. So if it is not labelled as organic there is a good chance that it is GM. And I wonder how easy it is for organic growers in the US to keep their crops free from stray GM? Personally, I avoid foods from the US. If you are a US resident I would suggest farmers’ markets and growing your own. Nothing is uncontaminated these days but we can do our best to avoid heavy contamination and unhealthy ingredients.

GM ‘foods’ are simply a no-no for me. But even so-called ‘conventional’ fruit and vegetables are loaded with chemicals. A nurse told me that she had had breast cancer although she was consuming a lot of salad at the time. (Sounds like another contradiction doesn’t it?). However, her oncologist put it down to the fact that she was eating ‘conventional’ salad i.e. sprayed with chemicals. So there you have it, some medics are aware of this issue. And while some acquaintances and friends are astonished that I go out of my way to source organics rather than purchase ‘conventional’ vegetables the fact is that organics are conventional. That is the way they have been growing for millennia. The so-called ‘conventional’ fruit and vegetables should display a warning that they are laced with a chemical cocktail, in my opinion. And US stores should be compelled to admit that many of the products are GM as well, I would say. How tasty and tempting would they appear then? There is nothing freaky about organics. They are simply naturally grown fruit and vegetables, as nature intended.

Does seeking good food all sound like a lot of bother? It becomes second nature and if improved health is what you seek then that is the only way to go, in my experience. And don’t forget that this is the simplest form of rebellion. The huge corporations that produce junk food can easily be brought to their knees when we stop consuming their wares. Please note that McDonalds is currently closing hundreds of ‘restaurants’ worldwide, as consumers choose healthier options. We really do have the power.

I have yet to touch on looking at liver health as well as what I actually eat and what I avoid. Hopefully, the above has been helpful for some who are starting out on the journey to find optimal nutritional sources and improve their diets.

Be well.

Should have posted this long ago. Vital information about the effects of wifi, TETRA etc. The powers that be continue to claim there is no issue. However, following a recent ban on wifi in nursery schools imposed by the French government we can assume that Electro Magnetic Frequencies are not quite as benign as is claimed. It is a known fact that the USSR used this technology against US consulate staff. Bees and cattle are known to be affected by telecom masts. Use with caution:

Clint Richardson: The only way we can stop geoengineering


If we do not register our ‘withdrawing’ our consent then it is assumed that we are ok with being sprayed. The following is a very well-researched blog post. which contains explanation of how the US government appears to have the legal right to spray the population without public consent if a situation is deemed to be a threat to the nation. That situation could come under the umbrella of ‘preventing terrorist acts’ I feel sure that this very fact has enabled the spraying to continue, with the acquiescence of those in power: It’s classified. Sign this. Then the gagged know the score but they can’t say a dicky bird.



My name is Clint Richardson and I am writing to you, the good people of America, because now more than ever we need each others help. I don’t want your money, only your time and a little bit of effort on your own behalf…

Intent is the foundation of a proper response and action against any problem. At the moment, most of the small percent of an otherwise uninformed population of this world that actually knows about Geo-engineering as a weather modification and control scheme inversely has no idea how to fight such an esoteric and out of reach event  (despite their determined intent) – like a bunch of electricians without tools for the job. We feel helpless against it; watching from miles below as the sky becomes dim and while record-breaking temperatures scorch and freeze parts of the Earth that have never known such dramatic

The phrase consensus facit legem is a Latin maxim which means consent makes the law. A contract is a legal agreement between the parties, and consent is an inevitable component for the legality of contract. The consent must be free and fair and should not be induced by fraud, misrepresentation, coercion or mistake.
We are governed by consent. I have yet to hear this statement be contested. And some in the know have confirmed that it is indeed the case. The way many of us read this is that something cannot become law if it is seen that the people withhold their consent. We have the power.

Two days to register your withholding consent to becoming totally transparent to all government departments. To have your personal details viewed by numerous temps, perhaps? Who knows? What we do know is that government’s track record with protecting our data is less than satisfactory and it seems nothing can be done when they do mess up. If you do not consent to your details potentially being accessed by any Tom, Dick or Harry then consider withholding your consent.

Strangely, people seem reluctant to do this. But the present consultation on Single Entity Government is just what it says on the can, I would suggest. Government is asking the people if they consent to this proposal. Now is your opportunity to say ‘NO’. To state clearly, ‘Your track record is abysmal and I do not consent to my personal details being potentially accessible to every civil servant.’

Here is the link you need.

The consultation document appears to be a pdf form of the Big Debate (LOL). It only serves to confuse many of us. Just email your response to the link given if you wish to make it clear that you do not consent to this proposal. Make use of your rights asap. The consultation closes on 31st July 2015.


It’s strange how we become aware of a particular philosophy or view and then notice every-increasing references to it. Yes. our antennae are now picking it up where it would have been unnoticed before. The latest revelation in my case is that most things are not black or white. And how many references to this have I noticed in the past week? The latest example being that of a film producer, Mark Batalmai who recently attended the premiere of his film entitled ‘Ukrainian Agony.’

Batalmai shot endless footage in the Ukraine which appears to demonstrate that the western media story was definitely not true. Quelle surprise! The Berlin premiere ended in a standing ovation followed by film crew interaction with the audience. Of course someone suggested that Ukrainian Agony is also propaganda. Batalmai’s response impressed me. He stated that it was his subjective view of the situation and that every journalist produces subjective reports. Batalmai went on to explain that mainstream journalists cannot be dismissed as liars. Many believe in what they are doing and many simply have not taken a step back to look at things from a different angle. Likewise, he continued, the situation in the Ukriane is not black or white, but many shades of grey. It is not a case of the good and the evil. It is far more complex. Indeed.

This applies to so many global situations. Research and experience has led me to take a different view on things than I held twenty years ago. I belong to those who consume alternative media sources and whose world views differs from that of the masses. Yet, there is a disturbing tendency within these groups to reject any deviation from the alternative view. I have noticed that querying and requesting further information can result in being rejected as ‘not one of us’. However, those who have arrived at this place, where the BBC has no place in their lives and where nothing is accepted at face value, obviously have enquiring minds. Thus we question everything. And it seems that some alternative journalists are neither open-minded or accept the many shades of grey that make up reality. You are either with us or you are against us? Sounds like a Bush quotation to me.

We are individuals and should continue to function as such. Informing ourselves, querying things and weighing up the pros and cons to arrive at an opinion, which may frequently change as other information becomes available. No I’m not one of the alternative herd either. Nor should anyone conform or change his opinion to comply with the alternative view.

There are multiple shades of grey and they are ever-changing. We must also be adaptable and have the courage to reject those who demand complete adherence to the alternative mantra. Whatever that is.


A positive mindset, self-empowerment, drinking plenty of water and determinedly doing what I could to move lymph (please see previous posts) were important parts of my daily routine which I put together in order to regain my health. However, I became very aware that I had to improve my breathing in order to experience any real improvement. Pulmonary fibrosis, as a result of constant inflammation, was the diagnosis. Online information sources weren’t exactly encouraging about the prognosis. But then I had been there before, right at the outset, so I wasn’t going to get bogged down in the dismal predictions. If I were to become more mobile, move lymph and ensure adequate oxygenation of cells and organs ( remember cancer cannot survive in oxygen) then improving my breathing had to be pretty much at the top of my list.

The adjustable bed did help me breathe more easily through the night. I also had a spray to use, if in dire need and the pulmonary specialist made a point of letting me know that it would be possible to have oxygen at home if/when the need arose. Not exactly the most upbeat situation but I felt sure there had to be a way to improve things.

Number one, I obtained a salt pipe (not a nasty plastic one btw. but a traditional ceramic pipe). Yes, I did notice a difference. I used it for about twenty minutes daily and soon became aware that it was certainly clearing my airways. Having scoured the internet and Youtube I was excited to discover the Buteyko method and was impressed with presentations  by Dr Artour Rakhimov. I am unable to find the exact video and article at this point but note that he has an informative blog: I began using a home-made device (constructed according to his explanations) and once I had recovered from the initial horror of my poor result on the self-assessment test I used the device for about 15 minutes daily. Again, the progress was noticeable. At the outset I emailed Dr Rakhimov to enquire whether this would be of help for me and he assured me that it could help me improve many of my health issues and suggested I contact him again if I needed further advice. At last  – some positive news! And a kind and helpful doctor.

In addition to this I began practising Qi Gong again. At first, I managed only one of each stance or posture. But this form of exercise (claimed to massage the organs) also began to show benefits for me and I was soon back into my routine of doing three of each posture, and feeling so much better for the gentle exercise. In my experience I have found that If practised correctly, this ancient Chinese system of exercise has so many positives for general well-being and therefore has to be a part of my day, every day. I also include a short form of Wu style Tai Chi in my practice. I have found meditation to be very helpful in regulating breathing and helping calm breathing and also introduced this into my daily routine.

The result? Prognosis supposedly five years if not controlled. That was more than ten years ago and things have definitely changed for the better. No medication, no cortisone spray and no adjustable bed!

I came across this video, by chance, yesterday and it makes a lot of sense to me. If your breathing is weak through illness then exercising to open the lungs makes perfect sense. The exercises are done in a sitting position. Personally, if I was still very weak I would only do one or two of each to start with and gradually build up to the desired amount. However, in my present condition I completed all the exercises.

As always, I reiterate my personal disclaimer: I am not a doctor and cannot advise you on health issues. The above is simply a description of some of the many tactics I used to improve my health, ditch the docs and and dump the drugs.

Much more to follow in the coming months. :). If you are looking for a quick fix, then go to the doctor and get some prescription pharmaceuticals with all the associated and listed possible side effects and interactions.I was in it for the long haul. I am aware of so many chronically sick people who are not prepared to make lifestyle changes and continue to swallow the prescription drugs, eat junk food and smoke.And then look for the next quick fix. That is their choice. I am grateful that the situation with the medics led me to seek alternatives. I have seen the results of drug dependency and I can only be thankful that I didn’t pursue that path any further.

As mentioned in the previous post, drinking plenty of good quality spring water made a difference for me and ensuring the intake of sufficient fluids is still a big part of my daily routine. I presently combine the water with fresh juice, having treated myself to a Nutribullet. And if you have faffed around with juicers at any time you would be pleasantly surprised at how easy this device is to use  – and clean. I generally follow the basic plan of half greens, topped with fruit and berries, seeds etc. In a trice these are whirled into a tasty, healthy smoothie. It is quite satisfying and seems to still your hunger somewhat. The amazing effect for me, however, is how efficiently this appears to get the lymph moving, and what a difference that makes. If you are unwell and need to rest a lot there is a good chance that your lymph system needs some assistance, at least that was my experience. Since the lymph system is what cleans up our cells it is clear how important, yet frequently neglected, this is.

Many would be surprised to learn that the body contains twice as much lymph fluid as blood. This precious fluid continuously bathes each cell, draining away debris in a circulatory system powered only by muscle contractions, breathing and movement. Because its stagnation can clog the entire system and allow toxins, bacteria and cellular waste to congregate, lymphatic fluid must be in motion.

How important is that! Essential, it seems to me – and many others:

With its elaborate network of vessels and nodes, the lymph system circulates lymph throughout the entire body without a central operating pump. Dependent upon muscle contractions and manual manipulation, lymph manages to isolate and eliminate infection and cellular waste. Without a motor driving its circulation, deep breathing, exercise and massage are great ways to encourage lymph’s flow and to maintain the health of this essential system.

Robert Morse ND explains why he believes that moving lymph is crucial if we wish to be healthy. (Lymph starts about 4.30 mins in)

My experience would certainly seem to back up this claim. Although I am juicing (and reaping the benefits of large quantities of easily assimilated vitamins, minerals etc), it is possible to move lymph with regular sips of hot water, as a cheaper alternative.

The best lymph-moving rehydration technique is to sip hot water every 10-15 minutes throughout the day.

I am not a doctor. I can offer you no advice. This is simply a description of things that have helped to turn my life around and helped me to dump doctor-dependency in the process.
