Nothing in Nature, or with a Woman’s body, works in isolation. All of our body systems must be able to work together harmoniously and in a uniquely balanced way in order to reproduce our kind.

Amenorrhea

This means the absence of menstruation for at least 3 months in a row. The most common cause is of course pregnancy, but often the glands and organs of the reproductive system will be out of balance, and Amenorrhea is the result of that.

There are Herbs out there that will help women menstruate, but these herbs should be avoided in high amounts and avoided altogether in pregnancy.

Three powerful Herbs that can help with Amenorrhea are:

Back to the basics, Back to natural

“Your Consciousness will bring you back in touch with the Basics, with Nature and all that is really important in Life” – Angelique Mol

When I was growing witin my Self, my Awareness and Consciousness over the last years, I naturally got drawn more and more to just the basic things in Life.

I started to read more about foods, drinks, pharmaceutical medicine, healthcare and discovered all kind of things in my research. From GMO’s to hormones in our veggies and meats, and all extra chemicals we don’t need in medication.

It’s ironic, isn’t it…..we eat and drink too much processed products, too much sugars even though we know it’s not the best for us and our health. And believe me, I’m guilty of this myself! Though, for quite some time now I’ve been cutting down on processed products, buy and eat more fresh and organic, not drinking any fizzy drinks and became Vegetarian since about 6 years ago.

For me, personally, deciding to go on a Vegetarian diet was not only about animal cruelty which is connected with the meat we eat, but more so about all the hormones in it. Animals get pumped up with hormones to grow bigger and so “produce” more meat. But, when the animals are processed to our meat the hormones are still in there, as it comes in the blood. These hormones can give us serious health issues and illnesses. Best choice to get good and pure meat is from a local butcher from who you know that treats his animals right and their animals were feed on the right natural food.

Funny enough, when you grow in your Consciousness, there is not really a “way back”, as you became aware of so many things and you can’t really ignore it anymore. I do still Love chocolate and cookies, but try to keep it to a minimum eating it to avoid too much of an overload in sugars…..as be aware, cancer cells Love sugar!! And this is no myth.

Going back to more Basics, going back to more Natural…….. is it a “bad” thing? Are you a “Hippie” when you do so?  I don’t believe so! I started providing Healing and Herbalism because I Do believe we are too much disconnected from Nature and Mother Earth, and that we “ignore” the great benefits she can give us for our health. Mother Earth basically provides all we need, but we are so used now to an overload of luxury in our foods and material things.

Going back more Natural means for me that I will be able to not only help my Self becoming more healthy but also help others becoming so. I do feel at this moment in time there is a shift going on, and people start to pay more attention to natural remedies and natural medicine, but also more organic foods, you can even see it more and more in the supermarkets.

If you think, for yourself…..what do you Really need? Think in terms of your health but also in material things. Could you maybe minimalise your living standards? Could you change your diet with more fresh foods and less processed? What is true Inner Happiness for you? Is it all the Things you own or is it about being Healthy and feeling great within your Self and just being Grateful for all the small things in Life what you have and receive every day?

Sometimes I read articles and see photos of people in third world countries or Natives, and we always feel sympaty for them, which is great of course, but who do you think have more Inner Peace and Happiness? They might not have all the materialism We have, but they also don’t have all the pressure and stress We have to deal with on a daily basis. They just live in simplicity. Not to say that you need to throw out everything you own, but it can give you much more Inner Peace and Happiness when you try to simplify your Life, focus a bit more on leaving things behind us that we don’t actually need and taking a bit more care for our own Health by chosing more Natural options.

The less chemicals you get in your body, the less illnesses you will experience, your immune system will become stronger, natural medicine have no side effects, so it’s safe to use, and when you’re less attached to materialism in general it will give you more Inner Peace and Happiness, as you don’t Feel the Need anymore to have everything “just for the sake of having / owning it”, as you have enough.

For me, personally, I’m happy to be Basic and Natural. I’m happy to be able to help other people and animals, to have Respect for Nature and Mother Earth and to be Grateful every single day. As the fulfillment and satisfation I feel when I help others, even in small things, is something money can’t buy but is So much worth in value.

Ayahuasca – Natural Herbal Medicine

Ayahuasca is called Vine of the Soul

I watched a documentary the other day on Gaia.com about Ayahuasca. For me, studying Herbalism, I feel that Ayahuasca is one of the strongest Herbal Medicine, as it learns you what you need to know, you really connect with Mother Ayahuasca and it has healing properties like no other plant or herb. I can change your life in so many ways.

Ayahuasca is a Herbal Brew, made in the jungles of Peru by Native Shamans and it’s a Tea or what a Herbalist would call it, a Decoction, meaning a strong Tea. It’s always made from 2 plants; one of which contains the hallucinogen Dimethyltryptamine ( DMT ), which is a true psychedelic in the same class as LSD, Psilocybin and Mescaline. In the Amazon,

Ayahuasca is a legally recognised sacred medicine, to heal physical and psycho-spiritual ills. Beyond the Amazon, the legality of Ayahuasca is still a gray area.The Vine of the Soul teaches you everything you need to know.Can it really Heal our Minds and Spirits?

Westerners have lost their Cultural Roots, they have lost the knowledge of the use of Natural or Traditional Medicine. Ayahuasca makes you learn. Ayahuasca is a means for man to get to know the different Realms of Existence. The Source of all Creation makes us see where man comes from that he comes from space, where energy comes from in form of Light.We are all formed through a relationship of Nature, Energy and Light.

Before the Ayahuasca ceremony you set an intention. At the beginning, after taking in the Ayahuasca, the Energy can be a bit heavy, so you need to clear that.You can sing, chant a mantra and bring in Light. It pushes out the negative Energies and it Clears the space. It makes you purge, which prepares the Mind and Body for the Inner Journey ahead.

The Chanting then carries people into a Realm beyond the 5 senses. You create a relationship with the Chanting.You become the other, and the other becomes You.There is a link because you are in such a hight state of Consciousness, you become very aware of the other, and the other becomes very aware of your energy. It Manifests in your own visual state.

What’s interesting about Ayahuasca is you don’t have to have Faith, like you need to have in a Religion.It’s the perfect tool for skeptics. Don’t believe what anybody tells you, take it and have the experience.

Ayahuasca is not for everybody, it is a very powerful medicine. It has to be placed and used in a proper way. If they don’t know how to do that it can create a psychological shock that will leave a trauma. With Ayahuasca one has an opportunity to experience oneself as whole and complete. If you can actually get that you’re whole and complete, what is there to be filled from the outside anymore? There’s no longer a need for it.

Ayahuasca can help people see that in two or three ceremonies, if it’s the appropriate shamanic leader and if it’s the right environment.That is a potential to heal addictions.

Ayahuasca has 2 functions, Self Discovery and trying to Understand better Who you are. It also helps you to Connect with the Invisible World, the Spirit World.It could be related to Nature, the Meaning of God, having a clearer sense of what it means for You in your Life. It helps you redefine yourself in relationship to that.

Ayahuasca is used for many reasons, for example as a Teacher of the Healing powers of plants.Ayahuasca is in many ways the key to the door that allows you into Plant Teacher World. It allows you to access the other Plant Teachers in a more profound way. A Plant Teacher is you look at a Plant as a being, which has a personality as each human does. You take on the traits of a Plant. Plants are very sensitive and intuitive and in Healing you need to be very sensitive and intuitive.

When one drinks a lot, death approaches, the presence of the energy of death. But with Ayahuasca it is not a physical death. It is a symbolic death of fear…..especially of fear. The death of the Ego, the death of things from the Past. But there comes a moment when you can no longer resist and accept death. Then fear is broken and Peace, Tranquility and Love come in.Ayahuasca is going to meet you where you’re at in terms of what needs to happen and potentially to go very deep into your own fears, and challenges, and personal growth.

Ayahuasca gives you a tool to actually approach this phenomenon experimentally. Ayahuasca can be a valuable component of treating things as psychiatric conditions, depression, anxiety, addictions, things that modern Western medicine, hasn’t really done a good job of addressing.

Always, but always use Ayahuasca Only in presence of a genuine Shamanic Healer or in a special Ayahuasca Retreat.

The Golden Honey also improves digestion and increases the beneficial flora activity in the gut. It’s certified as the strongest Antibiotic in Ayurveda.

How to mix and use it?

Day one: 1/2 or a flattened teaspoon every hour

Day two: 1/2 or a flattened teaspoon every 2 hours

Let the mixture soften and melt in the mouth before swallowing it, swallow it slowly.

You can use this Golden Honey mix also for respiratory diseases. Then take 1/2 or a flattened teaspoon 3 times a day, for a week. You can also use this mixture in Tea, just Warm boiled Water or Coconut Milk.

The Golden Honey also lowers Blood Pressure, reduces the Blood Sugar Level and is great when you suffer from Haemophilia and Hypertension. If you are on medication for this, always consult your Doctor first before using this mixture!

Don’t use Turmeric when you suffer from Gallbladder disease, as it causes muscle contractions of the gallbladder.
