My mouth is on strike!

It has been three and a half weeks since my one main meal of the day has been accompanied by eating four very hot raw  birds eye chillies along with garlic and ginger…. This has been a tough experiment as I have never eaten so much FIRE….!

Today my mouth just was not interested in allowing ANY hot food in.  I enjoyed my main meal for the first time after all these weeks.. it was bliss.

I had a large green salad with one avocado and two dessert spoon full of brown rice and peas 🙂

I intend to continue for another week and then I will give myself a break. I am glad to say it is possible to eat a large amount of chillies providing you have some fatty food like avocados, tahini or nut butters..

(I am not a big fan of munching through loads of nuts)

For a first experiment with chillies it was not bad, although my body was put through a rough and tough few weeks. (I have not slept much as the daytime revolves around family so often end up doing blogs etc late at night/early morning. I have averaged about 5 hours sleep a night which is not very good IMO.

I also got carried away with the sweet fruits so skin has been a little itchy again.

The major thing that I noted was this spot I had on my left hip has gone much smaller, flatter and very dark, like a scar rather than a fresh active reddy brown spot (which I had for some years.. ).

When I scratch it only the centre (pin head size) feels sore as oppose to before my chilli diet when it felt sore all over if I scratched it a little…

So I am very impressed with this raw chillies result.

Some of you may think ah she is just playing this is not proper scientific procedures. Well if I can get this strange spot to reduce in size by “playing” then thats great! ..I have been aware for a a few years regards below….and well I just wanted to share ..

Lies, Damn Lies and Medical Research

Is modern medicine actually “scientific”? The gold standard for modern medicine is the double-blind and placebo-controlled trial. But there are serious problems with these studies, unknown to most but widely acknowledged by researchers.

Scientist can easily set up a study that shows a drug is effective for a very limited period of time. Most studies of drugs for psychiatric conditions last only six weeks. What happens after that?  Do they still work?  Do they start to cause terrible side effects?  The studies will not tell you.

Dana Ullman, writing in the Huffington Post, argues:

“Sadly and strangely, many physicians do not see that there is something fundamentally wrong with the present medical model … for the large majority of people facing day-to-day chronic illnesses, it provides short-term results, serious side-effects, and stratospherically high costs.”

Thought provoking quote from Sikh scriptures

“One was the time when the thoughts never came.

Another was the time when the desire welled up to do justice and good.

Then came a time when it was all steeped in the fire of desire and want of all things,

That is all that the youth had tried to conquer and destroy and overcome.

Know the time has come to reflect on what has happened.

And after drawing the conclusion the time has come to depart.

But what use…. The time never came for the achievement of perfection.

Or was it that one never took the chance though it was there?”

I read the above 8 lines in a notebook. They were copied from the Sikh holy scriptures “The  Guru Granth Sahib” . I read them in my teens and vowed I would NOT be that person “who never took that chance”.

I was a typical nosey little sister who dared to go through her brother’s notebook. The brother who had been the naughtiest and nastiest brother in town  it seemed. And here were these words that he’d written/copied that were so deep and so inspiring for me as to how I should live …

It was after that I started to love him unconditionally… Anyway I took (stole) his little blue note book and I have still got it! 🙂


A beautiful prayer

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life

I read the above at the age of sixteen in a Christian Card shop. The words of St Francis of Assisi seemed so “Me”..They were my idea of who I was and wanted to be…
