Man alive, are these a cool marvel of history! Found in Peru, these geoglyphs are itched into the landscape, and measure between .4 to 1.1 km across. They are thought to have been made somewhere between 500 bc to 500 ad (by carbon dating). Their purpose is widely debated, but they appear to be linked with celestial positions, including the winter solstice. They consist of lots of straight lines, and over 70 of life forms, with unbroken lines. They are best viewed from a height of 1500 ft above! And now we have these cool pictures in stone form at NOURISH HEALTH FOOD STORE, TEWANTIN PLAZA, first lot selling out within hours of arriving.

zeolite ben and dia.jpg

These three great detox and wellbeing natural earth products are very similar in many respects, but unique in their abilities.

BENTONITE is a clay, and is formed from volcanic ash that has been trapped in an old evaporated seabed. It contains an abundance of minerals, including calcium, magnesium, silica, copper, iron, sodium and potassium. It has a neg charge, which attracts it to heavy metal toxins, and free radicals. These are then “flushed” from the body. Stock, especially sheep on our farm during drought times, will source out and eat the clay for wellbeing. It is also very popular as a face mask, replenishing tired and worn skin. Can be spread in cat litter to absorb odour, ponds as a sealant, and used in industrial cleaners. It has a CEC of approx. 80

DIATOMACEOUS EARTH is from a single celled life form called diatom, which is supposedly the first form of life on terra nova. It has been replaced with a highly neg charged silica content (approx. 90%), which is basically very small shards of glass. This is great for attracting heavy metals and flushing them from our body, and also for destroying internal parasites like worms and their larvae, and also external parasites such as lice and fleas. It will travel around the grease in animals cloaks, bind to the parasite and destroy the pest by “cutting” the internals or dissolving the crustaceous shell. Hens, sheep and cattle will seek out diatomaceous earth and rub against it, or ingest it for internal parasites. Uses also extend to ant control, helping keep the little guys at bay when they want to come inside! It doesn’t contain much value as mineral content (apart from silica). It’s function is quite specific, eradicate heavy metals and internal – external parasites. Its CEC ranges approx. around 35-40

ZEOLITE is also formed from volcanic ash, and has an absolutely amazing binding ability. It has a Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC) of 120! which is as high as one can go. That means it has a greater ability than the other two, to bind and remove toxins. It does contain some mineralization (calcium, magnesium, potassium and silica) but it’s best role is that of toxin removal. For this it’s #1. It’s used in mines, agriculture and commercially for pollution and heavy metal control. It is mainly ingested for toxin / heavy metal removal.

Old technology is once again coming into the limelight, and getting much deserved recognition (thank goodness !). The ORGON ACCUMULATOR, designed by one of our greatest health pioneers, Wilheim Reich, sits outside NOURISH HEALTH FOOD STORE for free 24/7 usage. And after 2 and a half years has had a lot of work!! The accumulator is a device that amplifies orgon/ etheric/ chi/ prana energy, and is said to help with all sorts of ailments and health issues. Wilheim believed the orgon energy is the energy that converts in-organic material into organic life form. It certainly has many happy users, who have recieved a wide range of benefits from Wilheims little known machine. Racing legend PETER BROCK had an “Energy Polarizer” fitted to his HDT race cars, and publicly claimed it improved performance and handling by “aligning the molecules” using orgon energy. British songwriter and singer KATE BUSH wrote her hit “Cloudbuster” about our legend and his work, and in JACK KEROUAC’S well known novel ”On the road”, the accumulator was treated as more of a drug than a medicine!  Call in to NOURISH HEALTH FOOD STORE in Tewantin Plaza, and ask our friendly staff for more info, or just test ride the machine any time you wish!

brewers yeastWOW ! Another hidden gem. Brewers yeast is the best possible source of CHROMIUM, the mineral with a proven record of helping diabetes. Chromium has being scientifically, and more importantly practically recognized as the mineral responsible for sugar metabolism in our body.  It works two ways here, firstly by increasing insulin sensitivity and thus slowing down sugar spikes, and secondly by a fibre in the yeast that absorbs the glucose, allowing for a slower more prolonged release of the sugar levels.  6 grams of yeast provides 95% of our RDI. The yeast has the most readily available form for absorption, the trivalent form. Chromium is now recognized as being very deficient in our diet. SELENIUM, is another mineral fully packed into the yeast. Selenium is a hard working anti-oxidant, and lifts our immunity to pathogens and diseases. Again, just 6 gr will give you 90% of selenium RDI. Tests have conclusively shown the RIBFLAVINS contained in brewers yeast reduces migraine headaches, both in severity and frequency. In one study, participants reduced the use of medications by 64% ! It’s a well recognized probiotic, and has beneficial effects on gut issues such as irritable bowel syndrome, diarrhea, crohns disease and general mineral/ nutrient absorption. It’s a real must after antibiotics have been used. And it’s got all the B Vitamins, except B12, which in most cases is added in. So when those mighty hungry mozzies and midges have a feast on your good self, you won’t end up scratching for days! The protein content is 52%, making this an ideal supplement for those body builders and others working out hard physically. And funnily enough, it is great for all pets as well !

chemical food vs natures goodness

roo foot.JPGI was recently asked this question. To be fair, I could spend a week on it, but I will try to put some brief thoughts forward. Your endocrine system is a chemical messaging system  consisting of hormones and used to regulate your bodies organs. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has recently said that pesticides contain toxic chemicals that are known to be Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals, and are suspected of being involved in reproductive problems, the rising prevalence of cancer, neurological issues and altered immune function. Big call from WHO. WHO also made a statement back in 2015, saying that it was probable that glyphosate is carcinogenic. Residual glyphosate is found in food (100% of Californian wines tested in 2015/16 by Microbe Inotech lab of St Louis, came back with glyphosate positive results) when not even sprayed on the plant, but simply around it. Not only do chemicals alter our own metabolic system, but they alter the soils chemical construction, and deplete many essential minerals we require for healthy living, eg magnesium, boron, chromium, calcium to name a few.  In the USA in 2017, the Environmental Working Group ran a report that showed of 48 conventionally grown crops, over 70% had toxic chemical contamination, with 178 different forms of pesticides being found… The same group compiled a list of “The Dirty Dozen” top most affected foods, when grown in non-natural form

#1  Cherries  #2 Dairy   #3  Strawberries, every sq km of strawberries has an average of 136kg pesticides sprayed on it, compared to other crops average 11kg   #4  Apples, testing showed 36 toxic chemicals. Peeling won’t help, as toxin is in fruit      #5 Tomatoes, again thin skin and so toxins inside the fruit    #6 Potatoes, laden with pesticides and fungicides.  #7 leafy greens   #8 Peaches and nectarines (unfortunately my favourites..)  45 different pesticides found   #9 Grapes   already said    #10 Coffee  also found to have some banned chemicals, as grown in countries without regulative control    #11 Celery  has no skin, so chemical applications have direct penetration   #12 Capsicum  over 39 chemicals found, and thin skin for rapid absorption. Remember that  these are only in chemical grown foods, thank goodness. And as a quick help –    Apple cider vinegar and sauerkraut have a probiotic called Acetobacter that metabolizes, and rids you of glyphosate residue. Activated Charcoal, Zeolite, and also diatomaceous earth and bentonite, can all help effectively rid our cells of most heavy metal chemicals. And best practice method ? Support your local hard-working grower of natural organic produced fruit and veges, and treasure your own great health!

Oooh, and whats the picture relevance?  Nothing, I just happened to see these cool guys on my walk, and loved the Joeys foot hanging out!

Diatomaceous.jpgHeres on of my favourites! This week I was disappointed to hear DIATOMACEOUS EARTH likened to asbestos! There is no connection, as asbestos is carcinogenic, and will give you an early trip back to our maker, where diatomaceous may cause some lung issues (silicosis), it will only do if inhaled frequently for a period of time ( water will drown you rapidly if inhaled as well). I have yet to hear of anyone having respiratory issues because of using Diatomaceous for the vast array of uses it has, but “black lung” was a common illness from silica (bound in coal dust) inhaled by coal miners back a while, when safety precautions weren’t in place. I have quarried, and used diatomaceous in stock and soil products for over 20 years, sold it to people with fantastic feedback for health benefits, and drink it myself as well as using it as an ant barrier and cockroach deterrent. The positive uses, if used sensibly, are amazing, and this guy deserves a place in every home! It’s interesting that 59% of the earths crust is silica, and 95% of minerals contain it as well.

Diatomaceous earth is a great way to detox your body, and at the same time replenish vital minerals. It controls both internal and external parasites by internally cutting the parasite when it ingests the silica, which is really a very, very small form of glass.  By taking this mighty fine powder, you remove toxins and heavy metals from your body  (as the silica binds onto these, and flushes them out! ).  Stock will actively seek out the diatomaceous earth and eat, or rub against it, as a natural worming / insecticide and health tonic . It can be rubbed onto fur coats, added to chook food, and taken internally by us to carry out this operation.  Add it to shampoos for lice control. It is completely safe to use! Take one to three teaspoons twice daily for a week, and drink plenty of water. If you are pregnant, consult your medical professional first. You can dust plants for pest control, create non-toxic ant barriers, general insect control and add to the soil as a plant health remedy.
