This Month’s Recommended Merlian News Articles:
Merryn’s Musings by Merryn Jose
Always interested in preventative medicine. I decided to pay a visit to a Holistic Health Exhibition held in London. I spent some time talking with a very enthusiastic sales person about the use of Polarity Screens which is a device that she claims has vastly improved her overall health by using them just twenty minutes twice a day. Personally I found the screens quite remarkable in their simplicity, which allows the body’s self healing mechanism to do all the work.

Mediterranean Lentils: A tasty Way to Get Your Protein
Inspired by a recipe from Diane Kochilas, the Greek-American food show host and cookbook author, this is one of my favorite vegetarian options for loading up on protein. Mediterranean lentils combine the warm spices of cumin and coriander with a surprising burst of vinegar and honey to create a tasty main dish that can be eaten hot or at room temperature. Cooked in two stages, on the stove and in the oven, this dish hearkens back to the ancient traditions of clay pot cooking practiced all around the Mediterranean for thousands of years.
It’s spring and that means our favorite pesky weed is about to make its appearance! Before you eradicate those interlopers you may want to try something different. Dandelion, both leaves and roots, whether grown wild or cultivated, is full of medicinal benefits. The greens can be chopped into salad, cooked like spinach, or added to juicing, while the root form can be used to make an infusion/tea or extract.
Dowsing the Conscious Cosmos by Tim Walter
Tim Walter writes on www.knightsrose.com: “Dowsing is incredibly easy to do, but many people get frustrated by it because as one practices there is inevitably a phase where one’s dowsing appears to stop working and the novice dowser is left wondering why their results appear to make no sense. These are usually times when the beginner dowser has asked the same question twice and got conflicting results or they are asking a question about something in the future.”
