Full moon in Libra, protection & healing from radiation & toxins, baking soda used for cancer, a sweet video and more!


# 1 – Evolution E-zine is featuring an article this week titled Medicines of Light: Protection and Healing from Radiation Poisoning, Neurotoxins, Bacteria and Viruses: A Hathor Planetary Message through Tom Kenyon. Check it out at: http://evolutionezine.com/medicines-of-light/

# 2 – Natural News featured an article in yesterday’s newsletter that I found absolutely fascinating about using baking soda and maple syrup for treating cancer and other conditions. I’ve heard about using baking soda to help alkalize the body, but never heard about this particular protocol before. Seems important that people should know about this simple, inexpensive, non-invasive means of health care that can be used for a variety of issues…

Baking Soda remedy shrinks tumors

Thursday, April 14, 2011 by: Allison Biggar

(NaturalNews) Baking soda has been used throughout history for a variety of purposes such as removing odors from the fridge, freshening up carpets and whitening teeth. But what few people know is that is it also a successful alternative cure for cancer. The treatment primarily benefits cancers of the throat, colon, intestines and rectal area, and when compared with the exorbitant costs of chemo and radiation, the baking soda cure weighs in at around $3. In addition, it is humane and non-invasive, something one cannot say for traditional cancer treatments. With baking soda, the worst that can happen is nothing, no change. This is a far cry from the decimation caused by cancer drugs and surgeries, which damage the immune system and leave the body in a severe state of shock.

“I was healthy and happy that I didn`t have to go through the torture that other people were being subjected to by doing the chemo or radiation. I never lost my hair or anything,” remarks 60-year-old cancer survivor Sondra Braun.

Cancer cells thrive in a low-oxygen environment. The body cannot retain oxygen cells if the blood pH is highly acidic, and this is the standard condition of those with tumors who eat a diet of refined sugars, flours, caffeine and other acidic foods. Baking soda, or Sodium Bicarbonate, is a substance that neutralizes acids. One teaspoon a week will reverse an acidic blood pH, as will switching to a diet high in alkaline-producing foods.

Because cancer cells are so hungry for sugars, when the baking soda is mixed with maple syrup, the mixture will go straight to the site of the tumor, like a Trojan Horse, where the bicarbonate will quickly work as a weapon against disease. A good recipe for this is to mix 3 parts organic maple syrup with 1 part baking soda, stir over very low heat for 5-10 minutes and take 3 tsp per day for 1 to 2 months.

“I found the article about Dr. Simoncini in Italy who injected baking soda directly into the tumors to kill them.” Braun continues. “For some reason this idea struck a chord with me. Three weeks after taking a baking soda and maple syrup mixture, my tumor began to shrink and become softer. This was documented by my oncologist and the surgeon by physical exams and also measurements by ultrasound. The tumor shrank down to 1.7 centimeters then only to 1.4 centimeters 2 months later after the ultrasound. It stopped shrinking because it had died. ”

Italian physician and researcher Dr. Tullio Simoncini determined that high levels of Candida were present in those individuals with cancerous tumors. His conclusions led him to declare cancer a type of fungus. The body does not quickly develop immunity to baking soda as an anti-fungal, so he was able to apply it directly to tumors and neutralize their acidity. He also found it is important to replenish the body with good bacteria, or probiotics, and to avoid exposure to chemicals and environmental toxins as much as possible.

North Carolina farmer Ian Roadhouse also experienced the healing power of this baking soda mixture when healer Jim Kelmun put him on the protocol.

“Those other doctors told me that I was a goner and had less then six months to live,” says Roadhouse. “But the doc put me on his mixture and in a couple of months the cancer was gone. It did not even show up on the x-rays.”

For maximum results, combine the baking soda treatment with other alternative cancer-healing protocols as recommended by your holistic health practitioner.

Libra Full Moon Reflections:
Befriending the Enemy

by April Elliott Kent

Do I not effectually destroy my enemies, in making them my friends? – Sigismund, Roman Emperor

Astrologers are fond of observing that a Libra is nothing more than an Aries who’s been to charm school. Libra is every bit as determined as his fellow cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, and Capricorn) to get what he wants. But unlike those signs, Libra has the ability to make it look as though serving his own needs is the furthest thing from his mind.

That isn’t meant as a criticism, by the way. I admire the strategy. My mother was born with Libra rising, and she had the iron fist in the velvet glove routine down pat. For years, I watched her put this skill to use securing contributions for fundraising events on behalf of her favorite charity. She overcame any resistance with sunny charm, pretending not to notice reluctance or impatience coming from the other end of the telephone, and refusing to be intimidated. By pretending that others wanted to be helpful, she persuaded them to be so. In the end, she always got what she was after – and nearly always, earned another fan in the process.

With this Full Moon joining Saturn in Libra’s side of the astrological ring, facing off against a Mongol horde of planets (the Sun, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Uranus) in ferocious Aries, conflict resolution is the order of the day. I’ve been thinking about the best way to deal with people who make me angry, as well as those whose interests are diametrically opposed to my own. One hesitates to call them “enemies;” it sounds so dramatic. But let’s face it, that’s what an enemy is: one whose interests conflict with yours.

As mom was fond of saying, “You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.” And as every Libran knows, there’s more than one way to defeat an opponent. The 15th century Roman Emperor Sigismund was admonished by his Prime Minister when instead of destroying his captured enemies, he brought them into his court. It’s said that he replied, “Do I not most effectually destroy my enemies, in making them my friends?” It’s a quotation often attributed to Abraham Lincoln, and though I couldn’t find a source for it, it does sound like the kind of thing he would have said, famous as he was for forging unlikely political alliances.

But when I think about befriending people whose opinions, lifestyles, or politics are abhorrent to me, some flinty part of me digs in its heels and refuses to give in, loathe to give the impression of surrender. Why do most of us find it so difficult to befriend our enemies – and why is that those with Libra prominent in their birth charts often succeed where we fail?

In traditional astrology, Libra is said to be the sign of the Sun’s “fall” – meaning, it’s one of the signs in which the Sun’s innate qualities of pride and ego are least able to express themselves. Unlike prideful Leo (the sign of the Sun’s rulership) and headstrong, impulsive Aries (sign of the Sun’s exaltation), Libra has the ability to strategically suppress his ego in order to get what he wants.

At this Full Moon, Mars in Aries is running full speed toward the brick wall of Saturn in Libra. Mercury, still retrograde, is backing toward the impending collision. And of course, all of them are provoked by Pluto, also retrograde and urging explosive confrontation. The potential for animosity and frustration over the next couple of weeks is enormous. It’s the kind of celestial atmosphere that suggests full-scale emotional meltdown. Picture five planets in Aries, like frustrated toddlers, falling down on their fannies, kicking their feet in the air, and screaming until they turn purple.

How to soothe five irate toddlers at once – or even one screaming customer, road-rageous fellow motorist, or internet flamethrower? By first making a friend of the enemy inside you – the stubborn, prideful, impulsive, and ego-driven part of you that stands in opposition to your best interests. Befriend that part of yourself, and you’ll have transformed your worst enemy into a strong, passionate ally. Once you’re fully at peace with yourself, you can respond to the rage, frustration, and stubbornness of others with kindness, even charm—fully expecting them to behave better, to be better. Not everyone will rise to meet your expectations —but at least you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that you did.

Best wishes, “Zippy”

p.s. If you are looking for a way to fortify yourself against possible radiation and other toxic substances, you may want to check out my website’s What’s New page for information about a superfood that is a superior blend of 7 whole-food sea vegetables. I did some research after hearing about it at Natural News and was very impressed with both the product and company. The product supplies all your body’s daily nutritional needs, plus offers natural protection from radiation and other toxic substances. The company adheres to universal principles in the way the business is run and is dedicated to giving back to the community through Feeding America and offering fund-raising opportunities to non-profits across the U.S. That’s my kind of win-win-win situation! You can also get updated information about radiation and iodine through the link, plus two free reports, one on weight loss, the other on glutathione and anti-aging.

Freedom or Death by Apollo Pampallis

This is the motto of the Greek Nation. It is taken to mean that one would rather die than live under the yoke of foreign occupation, so that risking or even losing one’s life fighting to that end would not only be heroic but an obvious choice.

However, this is a reactive interpretation. An assumption that we are victims of circumstance to the extent that ultimate victimhood, i.e. death, is a preferable, more honourable and more acceptable way of experiencing one’s victimhood.

This is reflected in religious rhetoric, with all the suffering, from those in the Old Testament, to Jesus dying for us and martyrdom of the saints.

Seen from a creative, self empowering perspective, however, “Freedom or Death” becomes more than a motto to live by, but a statement of unavoidable truth.

It links in with my first article on “Gratitude”  which I suggest you read as an introduction to see how obvious the relationship between freedom, death and gratitude really is.

Firstly let’s look at the word ‘freedom’. In Greek the word ‘eleutheria’ is far more meaningful. The word “freedom” alludes to a state of non dependence or subservience to anyone or anything. In truth, there is no such state. Even an anarchistic atheist is subservient to his “god”, his commitment to opposing the status quo and his belief that his philosophy is ‘correct’ and demands subservience. “Eleutheria”, by contrast, is not an assertion of negation of attachment such as ‘freedom’, but a positive statement of connection. It literally means “attraction and free flow of sacred/source energy”, so that such a person is aligned with universal energy beyond time and space, and thus not limited in our three dimensional temporality, or the illusion of time and space which our limited physical senses betray us into believing and being subservient to.

It is an ability to say “flip it” to any and all life circumstances and, with head up high, experience even the most uncomfortable, and most horrific life circumstances firstly with unconditional gratitude(not necessarily gratefulness- see Why Gratitude? for the difference). Only then do we allow ourselves the freedom to choose between dwelling on the terrible circumstance, like experiencing potential, imminent and unavoidable or unpreventable loss or danger or physical death to ourselves and/or loved ones or not. I have lived through poverty, homelessness, loss of all my most precious possessions. Being overrun by rats and not even being able to sleep. Others have lived through loss of their homes and family members in war and experienced horrendous concentration camp conditions and genocides, of whom the most known in the west in our time is Viktor Frankl.

The difference between ‘masters,’ ‘survivors’ and ‘victims’ of life is to what degree we are eleutheri/free, that is, connected primarily with “sacred (life) energy” or in other words our spiritual reality (source/cause) or the physical ‘reality’ we are going through (result/effect). The masters will experience ‘gratitude’ (great attitude) and power, regardless of physical circumstance, (literally things that stand around us in our lives) the survivors, being the great majority of us, will unconsciously drift between spiritual and physical realities without being aware of it, while victims identify fully with the material state of life, and are cut off from any sense of creative power, reacting unconsciously to the same circumstances, not realizing that circumstance is a state of effect of what we consciously or unconsciously create.

The tendency to increased ‘victim’ mentality needs to be acknowledged in all levels of our society, so that we can become aware of our own programming as we in turn reinforce this programming in a vicious self reinforcing cycle.

The institutions that own us and that we serve cut us off even further from our source than the identification with our physical reality. Physical reality is created from Source, and our nations and religions are created by ‘our’ egos, the egos of our physicality. In truth, you cannot identify with, and serve Source and at the same time identify with and be in bondage with such abstractions as nation states and religions which by definition stand between us and our spiritual reality, and as a consequence fellow humans and the rest of Creation.

The likes of Jesus and Socrates were neither victims or put to death, because as free spirits (eleutheri) they identified with their primary/Source reality which is not limited by time or space of the three dimensional world. They understood that in reality death is merely a belief of the body-bound ego. Real death is identifying with the body instead of owning it.

And that is really scary, as our bodies and the personality we have created around it is a temporary (meaning in time) creation designed to ‘die’ any how sooner or later.

They chose to let go of their bodies instead of their serene understanding of who they really were and are. The same applies to saints and martyrs who chose to let go of their bodies in the way that we let go of an old car. The vehicle no longer serves its owner. The operating costs outweigh any benefits it offers. The metal used in its making is best served recycled into a new car, as do the spiritual and physical/material components of a body which has served its purpose, irrespective of its age. The image of a Jesus pinned on a cross only serves to foster the illusion of death and suffering, whereas He chose to rather illustrate how the sacrifice (sacred fee) of His physical body bought the promise of eternal Life, together with the promise that we shall (at some point, not might) do better than He had in our own lives.

We are, indeed Spiritual Beings having a physical experience. And true ‘freedom’ is not the pursuit of total detachment, but of misidentification only with all things temporary (which by definition, die), things, people, ideologies, beliefs….. and re-membering our Source, allowing it to guide us in its service, and vice versa. After all, serving our Source is the best way to serve ourselves, and likewise Source/God serves itself best by serving us.  Something that is as easy to do as our willingness to do it.

To Your Health, “Zippy”


Vitamin D–The “D” Must Stand for Dynamite!

Yipes! I can’t believe I started creating my “Hello World” opening blog a month ago and am just now finishing it up and moving on to this new posting. Hopefully I’ll get faster at this as I go along.

Anyway, one of the things I’ve been researching lately is vitamin D. It seems that suddenly this is the “go to” nutrient for almost anything that ails you. I remember when you really didn’t hear much about it, which gave me the impression it must not be that important to our health. Now they’re finding that it is not only necessary for bone health, but also can help protect against colds and flu (including swine flu!), a number of cancers, and more.

And what’s interesting is that as they are discovering how big of a player vitamin D really is, they are also finding out that most people are deficient in this “sunshine vitamin.” Even 83% of the people living in Saudi Arabia, one of the sunniest climates around, were found to be deficient. And the Mayo Clinic found that 100% of the African-Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans they tested had low levels of D, so it’s affecting the entire population. And chronic deficiency has shown to play a role in 11 types of cancer, as well as in inflammatory conditions such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and Crohn’s Disease. Low levels of D also play a part in heart disease, pain issues, diminishing cognitive function, and weak, brittle bones.

There’s so much about vitamin D that I think people should know that I plan on writing an article to recap all the information I’ve found. But it may be awhile (consider that it took me a month to get my “Hello World!” blog done) before I will be posting it on my website. And with flu prevention being a hot topic right now, I wanted to let people know right away that they should make sure they’re getting enough D.

TIPS: When buying any D be sure you’re getting D3 (cholecalciferol), not D2, an inactive form of D that’s about 10 times less effective because it’s hard for the body to absorb and use. And be sure you’re taking an adequate amount of D. Many researchers, doctors, and healthcare practitioners are now saying that the RDA recommendation of 400 I.U. is way too low, and that we should be getting between 2000 – 5000 units a day (some set therapeutic dosage as high as 50,000 I.U. a week). So make sure you’re taking enough to have a preventative effect, and since D is fat-soluble, always take it with some fat/oil containing food(s).

PICKS: There are a ton of different vitamin D supplements available, and even more now that it’s showing itself to be such a powerhouse. And in light of recent findings, many companies are putting out versions of D with much higher doses than before.  Up until a couple of months ago I didn’t take any vitamin D other than what was in my calcium supplements, but after all the stuff I’ve been reading, I decided to change that. Right now I’m using Now’s Liquid Vitamin D-3 (you can get it through the Links or To Your Health page on my site for one of the best prices around). Each drop equals 100 I.U. and a dropperful is 5000 I.U., so it’s easy to take the dosage you feel is right for you and not have a lot of pills to swallow. It’s taste-less, so that’s a plus, too (you can even add it to your salad dressing and get your dosage that way). I like it a lot, but will also be keeping my eyes open for anything else that seems worth checking out. And be sure to leave a comment if you have your own D recommendation to make.

That’s it for now. Have a “D” lightful day, Zippy (aka Zirah)
