Please Mary, do expound some more. I am eating enough fruit, but find myself
wondering what else to eat. It's weird, you'd think at 38 I'd have a better
idea of that, but, well, eating never has been necessarily a priority for
me. Having eaten a banana, some cataloupe and an egg and cheese sandwhich on
7-grain roll today so far, I still find my hands shaking, not just right now
but over the last few days. V just said as she was walking out the door that
it might be my blood sugar levels or something to do with that.
It's interesting too that you mention the fire element thing (my Chinese
sign is fire horse).
I'm sorry Mary, but I was a bit hazzy at the conference, and don't
remember too many introductions at this point (though some do stand out).
Perhaps if I saw you I'd slap my forehead and go, "duh, of course," but
until then, no, drawing a blank, sorry- (still, I'm glad you've piped up).
Especially if it was a fairly brief and pleasent exchange. But I'm glad to
both read about your liking my aroma, and the apparent fact that I
subconsciously picked some good scents to wear.
Now, please do expound a bit on this food deal. I'm not a bit leafy
vegetable eater, never have been, but do dig rice and starchy foods. Some
stuff hurts to eat because I'm missing some innards, and I don't eat meat at
all (but do eat dairy and eggs, when I eat that is).
And to Rachel, thanks for the suggestions today- I went out and made a
grocery run, buying GABA and some Melatonin, some epsom salts and detox tea
bags too. And just climbed outta the bath. Boy do I smell good now.
It's weird too, but I'm getting hit on a lot suddenly, Spring being in
the air here. Tried to check out this store on Ave. A today, filled with
some Italian designer's stuff that blows my mind every time I pass, both
'cause the clothing rocks, and the prices are so expensive I can't ever
imagine myself actually buying anything in there- anyway, I walked in to
check out something I saw through the window and the sales girl was all
eyes, great big foreign accented eyes. LOL, I had to leave, as it was a
Anyway, again please Mary, more on the food stuff.
Peace and love,

Haven't contributed to the forum in a while but I thought I'd jump in
because of your comments about fruit eating and such to Mark. (I introduced
myself to you at the ibogaine conference - liked your aroma - patchouli and
frankincense - maybe you recall me from asking you about it). This blend is
a great combination because the patchouli is grounding and the frankincense
is warming and both of them reduce the wind element. The wind element is
useful for creativity and "out of the box" thinking but if it runs amok the
stabilizing forces must come into play. Because fruit is the most "out
there"/external part of the tree/plant it correspods in many ways to the
wind and that's why it is so useful in cleansing - it gets things moving.
Are you eating enough of other things is my question because your body might
be requiring more grounding food. I would expound on that if you are
interested. I also have a take on the life food/living food/raw food thing
if you are going for that - it is good for people with a strong fire element
going on and/or depending on ,again, what live foods you are eating - that's
a whole can of uncooked worms. One other thing I thought of with regards to
your hip and pain in general and that is to get some sesame oil (food grade)
and warm it up and apply it to your entire body as a daily ritual for
awhile - let it get into your skin for at least a half hour before
showering. This is used in India for treatment of vata (wind) disorders and
it is good for the joints and pain.
