Purging in Philly

Today I am in Philadelphia helping my DIL get ready for a big move from Philadelphia to San Francisco, California.  We are throwing things away right and left, boxing things up for Goodwill to pick up, and boxing up food stuffs to give away at church on Sunday.   We have only just begun.  Plenty more to do.

The whole family is looking forward to this move to San Francisco.  I hope they will be happy there...and be sure to wear some flowers in their hair. If You're Going to San Francisco

We rewarded ourselves tonight with a fun trip to Olive Garden.  I had the salad, vegetarian minestone soup, and iced tea.  We have been eating almost all raw ever since I have been here.

This afternoon I practiced my flute.  The National Flute Convention is in less than a month, and there is lots of music to learn before I get there.  Hopefully, I will get to sit by lots of people that know what they are doing and I can tag along with them.

My friend Cindy emailed today asking for a recipe I made when she came to dinner at my house when Dr. Fielder was visiting.  Someone wants to bring it to the raw food group potluck next week.  It's easy to make and delicious.  Here is the recipe:

Not Tuna Pate
2 1/2 cups sunflower seeds  (grind fine in a processor)
2 cups chopped celery
1 1/2 cups chopped purple onion
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
1 cup parsley
Half cup freshly ground dulse or use dulse powder
Fourth tsp black pepper
Fourth cup coconut oil
Two lemons juiced
Mix in large bowl using hands (all ingredients)
Serve by labeling a tsp of pâté into a romain leaf
Also serve with no bean humus, if desired.  Put a dollop on the leaf before and after the pate.
Add avocado and chopped tomato.

One of the principles of Natural Hygiene that I learned from Dr. John Fielder is that we always feel worse before we feel better.  This will take some time as we heal.  It can take months.  But as we progress the times of feeling worse will lessen and the times of feeling better will increase.

A healing crisis will often follow a time of feeling better than we have in a while.  The body has built up enough vitality to get rid of accumulated toxins and stored morbid wastes.  During a healing crisis you will feel really ill, usually with a fever.  This is a time to begin fasting by going to bed, stopping all food and drinking only water until you feel better.  Fasting is best done under the supervision of a Natural Hygiene practitioner.  I work with Dr. Fielder to assist me on my fasts.  Here is his website:

When the healing crisis is over, it doesn't mean we are done.  It's only a phase.  We continue with the lifestyle and trust the process until the next healing crisis manifests.

To health and happiness.
