Some of our almond harvest. Me and Mohan had much to learn regarding how to harvest almonds. It was tough work but thoroughly enjoyable too as we munched our way through some delicious fresh almonds. It took nearly two weeks to harvest all the almonds!
They needed drying too so we would pick some and then leave them to dry in the sun as above. Their outer peel had to be removed first too.
I was going to talk about my rash and products I used but I think I fancy sharing some more photos with you guys
Both the fungal rash photos were taken by Priyanka 🙂
Well unknown to me.. it all started in Sept 2008.
I was sleeping in a room that had black mold growing on the wooden beams.
I knew that mold is very bad for the human body however as I am normally super healthy, I had a cavalier attitude and thought..I’ll wait till next summer and get the black mold cleaned of the beams.
During that winter I had a bit of a chesty cold. The symptoms always came on at night time. My youngest (Mohan) who was sleeping in that room too had similar symptoms.
Come January 2009 I was very very ill one night. I thought maybe the smoke from the chimney was bothering me so I stopped using the log fire and slept with the window open. Things improved a little.
I put my symptoms down to stress and Mohan’s symptoms I put down to him having raw goats milk and goats cheese.
Summer came and I slept out till september. Watching shooting stars every night lying under the stars was just magic.
Then I spent a couple of weeks in England and got back in November. My health was fine no problems and then I slept in that room again and as it had got cold, I slept with the windows shut.
Within 3 days I was severely ill with a sky high temperature wheezing like I have never experienced. My lungs felt like they were drowning in phlegm. I was coughing, wretching, my stomach seemed to be having ..convulsions.
It felt like I was going to die. Every breath was laboured..there seemed no space for air to go in and when I did get adequate air it was accompanied by a stabbing pain.
I feel that life continues after death and death is not the end. However, I did not wish for Mohan to have to deal with such a situation at such a tender age.
I managed to get down the stairs and sat in my kitchen. I was in my “pharmacy” and I had enough things to get me through this night.
I started with a mouthful of colloidal silver. (antibacterial)
Then a glass of water with a teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate. (antifungal)
I made a strong ginger infusion. Sipped that with a little honey or stevia, can’t recall.
The coughing calmed down.
I felt so weak yet in total control because I understood
what was happening to me and why.
I had played with fire by sleeping in a room with as much mold as was on those beams.
I even had had the audacity to clean them myself a few days earlier thus exposing myself to
a even larger dosage of mold…. shakes her head..
Mohan also got a bad cough and high temperature.
I did not need anymore proof that black mold was destroying our health.
Over those 3 days I had coughed so hard my lungs and stomach muscles ached as if they had been punched.
A few days later I came back to live with my two older children, Raman and Priyanka after one year and three months. During that time Derek had spent half his time at our orchard with me and Mohan and half here on the coast with Priyanka and Raman.
I came back because I needed to be with all my family. They needed me here and I needed them. I had achieved much by staying at my orchard but know it was time to return.
I had overseen the extension to our home,
building of a massive water deposit,
laying of pipes to water a orchard that is 8 acres (33 thousand metres squared)
I had experienced life with out much of what modern Western humanity takes for granted.
It was empowering for me.
And last but not least my youngest child had had the connection with mother nature in a spectacularly enchanting environment that would have been the envy of even Huckleberry Finn!
On returning to my coastal home, I started a regime of using antifungal, lung cleansing , general detoxing herbs and practices.
During the first three weeks back the pain in my chest decreased and the wheezing went for good.
However I noticed a rash like a burn on my posterior. It slowly spread all over my body accept my head. I suspected it was related to the black mold poisoning so I googled photos of fungal rashes.
I was not at all surprised when I saw a man with spots just like those I had,
under the heading “Black mold poisoning”.
Mohan also went on to develop the rash. His symptoms thankfully were not as severe as mine because his immune system is much stronger then mine.
I spent a few hundred euros to buy the various products to help us speed up the healing process.
I went a bit over the top but health is worth it!
So where is my health at know?
It is 5 months since this started, am I back to being symptom free?
No, I still get a little itchy and my lungs and kidney area are still a tiny bit sore.
However they are MUCH better then where I was 5 months ago.
You may be wondering which products did I use?
I will share that information in the next post 🙂
I feel just as a mechanic has a large set of tools to fix a car, so there are many key “tools” that are needed when healing the body mechanics four major components:
1. Spiritual awareness through a joyous spirit
2. Mental positivity/peace
3. Emotional poise
4. Physical balance
I address the above 4 issues the best I can and according to the circumstances I am in.
My health challenges often have roots in emotional issues that ultimately manifest as symptoms.
Having said that as there are so many toxins in the environment it is quite possible that you can be at peace and still get ill…
Eating raw food is only one tool in a vast array of tools that help with balancing the physical component (and eventually has an effect on all the components).
However it is the one tool I have most control over. I can´t stop the less then ideal water supply or air.. but the food that enters my mouth is completely in my control.
So I generally tend to heal myself mainly through food and drink.
I have a friend who told me he eats loads of raw food just like me.
However he still has diabetes though…
I know that in addition to his salads and fruit he eats a regular vegetarian diet consisting of a lot of fried food, plenty of modern dairy and lots of sweet puddings.
I have pointed this difference between our diets but I don´t think he has taken it on board…
So I need to clarify this point.. If you want to get healthy you cannot eat a whole load of salad and then think oh I have eaten so well I will have a burger or pizza or whatever know. The body is very forgiving and healing providing the food that enters is pure.
However even a few mouthfuls of fried lifeless stuff gets noticed straight away. Especially if your health is compromised. The body isn´t forgiving in such circumstances.. not mine anyway!
Its just amazing that one tool healed me of 24 years of health imbalance a decade ago.. Incredible ..I am still on a high!
Through extensive research I have discovered many tools that can be utilised to heal or and maintain balance
There are some very alkalising herbs, that remove acidity, which happens to be a key factor in illnesses.
There are many powerful products like MSM, Zeolytes, MMS, colloidal silver, sodium bicarbonate that have no known negative side effects.
Last November I had to pull out much of this knowledge to stay alive.
So what happened…?
Something happened a week ago and I was again reminded that
“life is never tomorrow, life is always today, time you never can borrow by wishing the moments away”..
I have written so much over the years and I wanted to share it, but it took this experience to give me the push I needed, to start my blog…..
Anyway, I better go and do my motherly duties.
These grapes were lovingly hand picked from our orchard and hung to dry in our kitchen. They are moscatel grapes and full of super goodness as the roots of these long established grapevines go down at least 6 feet! Thus they have an abundance of nutrients to filter into this fruit of the gods…
There is a pain I have seen, in every soul
No one escapes it once they are born
Shades of black and shades of grey
Colour our souls from day to day
Misery thrusted into each others hearts
People everywhere falling apart
Pain from lovers,pain from health
Pain caused by lack of wealth
deep and swirling its captured we
Like Iron from a Magnet we can’t break free
Till death we are partners our pain and we
