Thoughts on the world, homeopathy, mindfulness and food...
A collection of blog posts - feel free to respond with your thoughts and comments - I love to have feedback - thank you!
It strikes me, on watching this video by Dr John Campbell:
that perhaps his tangents here are as important as the main content of the video. I like his measured delivery, well reasoned arguments and calm logic, but there is a certain chill that runs through this one.
Images of mass conforming, and may happen when you don't conform.. along with this image (screen grab from his video above). I failed to get the shot as a clear shot, but think the red line perhaps accentuates the words.
When we're told to look away, or look a certain direction, it's interesting to ask why or what we're not being shown perhaps.
Especially significant as I watched it after a recent Russell Brand video highlighting links between government and Big Tech, it felt an important message to remember.
I've heard several times of Drs who were told, 1st week in training, that all the other 'alternative' stuff out there is nonsense and don't pay any attention to it. Which feels relevant given that my week started with someone who'd struggled for 6 years with chronic catarrh. Going through packs of tissue every week, describing her snot as 'all day everyday'. She had ear problems, would be in pain with flying. Hearing wasn't as good as it used to be. She couldn't smell anything. She had 2 surgical interventions. And was still struggling.
10 months of us working together, she'd been improving impressive amounts at each follow up and yesterday she stated that she was 99% better. What was the phrase she was told? Along the lines of 'there's nothing can be done'. Whilst it might be someone's truth, it's certainly been disproved of being THE truth. She was told her smell wouldn't come back. The nerves had been damaged. Three days ago, she reported to me, she'd smelt 5 different smells - mint, onions, a man's aftershave, cauliflower and washing powder. She was told her smell wouldn't come back.
Also now, no hearing issues. No pain on flying. No crackling in her ears. Hearing fine. One tissue to blow her nose on a morning. No waking in the night feeling that she was drowning in snot. No cough/having to clear throat. No constant snot all day everyday.
On a theme relevant to John's video, I've seen another case today where there wasn't hope given. She's passionate about sharing her tale and I'll share more later, as she's going to write something for me. But enough to say things have gone from a few seizures a day at times to a couple of seizures in a month. Tics massively reduced. To having hope and at times even feeling a sense of joy. Her words? 'It's been transformative'. I'm grateful to have been able to witness the changes for her.
So often even if someone else doesn't know of it, there may be something that can be done. Don't give up. Do not let anyone tell you there are things you should not learn or know.
