I first heard about Mindfulness a few months ago from my friend Mohamed, but it wasn't until I paid attention to Betty Anne watching this video that I actually spent some time learning some good facts about it.

You'll note that the video is part of a four part play list. If you watch most/all of them, you'll soon learn that Mindfulness is showing to have positive impacts with the body's healing processes... and that's in addition to all the positive effects it can have on your being present in your life, and coping/managing stress!

Betty Anne found this intro video mixed into the content of an MBSR web-site offering a free eight week online course in Mindfulness!

An article appeared in The Indian Practitioner in September 2010 (volume 63, number 9, pages 567-574) that details the results of three clinical studies performed with malaria patients and silver, including a 100% cure rate in an average of five days.

I know I was skeptical in the beginning by these claims, but after reading/watching the balance of the information that I have linked to in my Structured Silver section... I definitely started opening up to the possibilities.

An incredible video that challenges our thoughts...

If you enjoyed watching this video and want to know more, Betty Anne has an article with the full video!



My wife has been off work for over a month now, having suffered with a bizarre chain of (what's been summarized as) infections (UTI, sinus, ear, then kidney?) which (western medicine felt) impacted her blood cell counts/levels.  I believe in the end they labelled her with pancytopenia, basically an autoimmune condition to our understanding.

My online research (which kept bringing me back to Robb Wolf's site) hinted towards a hormonal root cause:

  • It’s in the Blood: When it Rains it Pours, this post initially created the link in my mind between symptoms of urinary bladder discomfort like frequency, urgency, frequent infections and the effects of low/high estrogen levels in women
  • and the Testimonial – Female Hormones: Finding Balance post introduced options to control hormonal imbalance / estrogen dominance... namely DIM (diindolylmethane) for specific estrogen leveling and Calcium D-glucarate which would also help to find balance through detoxification.

Before we did anything ourselves, we thought it might be a good idea to seek a Naturopathic Doctor.  This experience ended up being short lived, but not before we at least had a saliva test which should have told us about her endocrine / hormonal system. Hence the reason behind the ended ND experience, low/no result interpretation. We left knowing only that her cortisol levels were high in the morning and in the evening.

Today, our Paleo Approach book and cook book arrived and my wife devoured it... learning many things:

  • It explained her cortisol issues well and learned that her symptoms indicated chronic high cortisol… which can be managed by diet and lifestyle changes:
    • Resistance training
    • Walking
    • Sunlight
    • More social interactions to increase oxytocin
  • Need to eat more ferments (healing leaky gut)
  • Need to eat much more organ meat, the more the better, and of various types (not just liver).
  • Need more consistency with sleeping habits, even across the weekends
  • Best exercise is resistance based

We will be following the Autoimmune protocol for a while and placed an order for the DIM (diindolylmethane) and Calcium D-glucarate, which should be arriving in the next couple weeks via Amazon.

Sarah Ballantyne is the author of the autoimmune books we purchased and has more information on her Paleo Mom website.

Thank You Robb & Sarah for providing our inspiration behind good health and healing!
