Merryn’s Musings by Merryn Jose
The Power of Homeopathy
Merryn writes, “Several years ago I was shocked to read an article by Dr. Mercola stating that the Federal Trade Commission was cracking down on this well-respected form of natural medicine….Several years ago I was feeling unwell, and couldn’t pinpoint the source. I was chronically tired, unable to sleep through the night, had poor digestion, and finally broke out with eczema on my face and neck. Nothing I did seemed to help. Then a dear friend of mine recommended I see George Vithoulkas, the renowned homeopathist who treated Krishnamurti. I knew that homeopathy treated health issues by using minute amounts of ingredients similar to what caused the problem – what practitioners call treating ‘like with like.’”

If Plants are Conscious, What Happens When We Eat Them?
Not too long ago The New York Times ran an article, Sedate a Plant, and It Seems to Lose Consciousness. Is It Conscious? The new evidence that plants have a type of “conscious,” joins a host of other research indicating that plants are intelligent, understand where they are in space, respond to threats and obstacles, and communicate with each other. We’ve known for years that plants grow faster and lusher when you play the right music or speak nicely to them, but now there is evidence that plants form memories. Does that mean they remember that you were kind to them? And what does it mean now to eat them? What, if any, are the moral or ethical implications?
Dr. Grossman writes, “Problems with eyesight can occur at any age, but in seniors they are more common. For most eye conditions, the risk rate increases for those over 70- or 80-years old. However, many of the eye conditions that arise as a result of age are considered to be normal by many medical professionals, although physiological or biological compensations are possible. Aging does increase the risk for some sight-threatening eye conditions, which is why it is important to be informed and to have regular eye check-ups.”
House Healing by Tim Walter
Architects and designers are aware of a phenomenon called “sick building syndrome.” My work can address some of the issues found in sick building syndrome such as detrimental Electromagnetic Frequencies (EMF) but usually the work I do is to assist people who are either suffering unusual effects from being in their homes or they have come to me suffering from symptoms that are collectively referred to as Geopathic Stress.
Jin Shin Jyutsu
Keeping Up Your Kidney Energy for Strong Bones by Mitzi Adams
Jin Shin Jyutsu® physio-philosophy is an ancient art of harmonizing the life energy in the body. This art brings balance to the body’s energies, allowing the body to function, feel better and heal more quickly. With the high occurrence of osteoporosis, osteopenia, and other fragile bone conditions, prescriptions for Fosamax and similar drugs are given routinely. There are other alternatives if you are willing to take the time and give this a try.
