Welcome to Herbal Pharmacy for Everyone’s blog section of the site.

This is a place to visit often. Gudrun looks forward to keeping you up to date on upcoming workshops, classes, speaking engagements, and more.

Thanks for dropping by!

DID YOU KNOW THAT?

…. it takes 4,000 kg (8,818 lbs) of rose petals (2.5 acres of rose bushes) to obtain 1 kg (2.2 lbs) of essential oil of rose,
…. 150 kg (330 lbs) of flowering tops of lavender to yield the same amount of essential oil?

Please keep this in mind when using essential oils and I suggest that you use them sparingly.

Have a wonderful and happy, healthy week.

Green Blessings,
Gudrun

KAMBO

Kambo is a Giant Leaf frog found in the Amazon. Its “medicine” has a variety of applications but one of the major reasons for its use is the effect it has on the brain and the psyche as a psychedelic substance. It is powerful “medicine” and you can find lots of information on the internet about it.

The other day I was inspired to write a poem (see below) about it because it seems like presently many people feel the need to experience psychoactive substances used by traditional tribes and healers. There is a tendency to believe that these experiences bring a sense of accomplishment, making a person a “better” person, “better” than others. I have reflected upon this phenomena in the context of our ability to live life and decided to share my inspiration with you as food for thought. Enjoy.

KAMBO – Frog Medicine: Illusion or Reality

Still flying high
Soaring high in the sky

Looking at life in a different light
Experiencing all there is from new heights

All the induced reflections
Causing different perceptions

Spirit has so many different forms
It may come and go like a storm

Has it really changed the way things are
Or is it just an illusion from afar

Are you really a different person now
Is different better – if yes how

Life’s challenges are still the same
So are responsibilities – what a shame

The real test is living how
With spirit present in every moment now

Taking responsibility for who we truly are
Leaving behind our desires and ego so far

In service to our soul’s purpose
Is our life’s journey

~ Gudrun Penselin

HOPE

“Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tunes without the words and never stops at all”. Emily Dickinson

Hope is an essential element in any form of healing. Dr. Edward Bach said to never take away from anyone the hope for healing. I am hoping, wishing and praying that this year more and more people will re-connect to nature, so that Mother Earth will receive the much needed support for her healing. Everyone of us can make a difference. Let’s shift our focus to things that really matter and what life is truly about.

Green Blessings,
Gudrun

Happy New Year to All!

AlbertEinsteinAlbert Einstein said: “Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

During this time of reflection and good intentions you might want to keep this in mind – for yourself and others.

Love, peace, health and happiness for 2015.

Always wanted to explore the world of the oceans?

Here is your chance! Become a member of “The Picton Castle”, a three-masted barque currently sailing from Bali to Reunion in the Indian Ocean. I am forwarding details I received from someone I met years ago on one of my memorable travels. He is a relative of the captain.

.
Dan Moreland, Captain of the gorgeous three-masted barque Picton Castle, is currently sailing from Bali to Reunion in the Indian Ocean. They are looking for additional trainee/crew to sign on in Cape Town in a couple of months. If you could forward this to anyone you can think of who might be interested enough to at least forward it to some other folks who might be interested, I would appreciate it. It’s hard to get the word out to new people from the bridge of a sailing vessel at sea, though a lot more possible than it used
to be.

.
Join the PICTON CASTLE world-voyaging crew in Cape Town, South Africa, January 2015 or in Cape Verde in March 2015.

The Barque PICTON CASTLE has been sailing the worlds’ oceans for nearly 20 years in the wake of the great square rigged ships of the Age of Sail. Her epic voyages have already inspired hundreds of people to come together to sail, to explore this salt water globe and to seek to learn all that a ship on the open ocean has to teach.

Our crew connect with people and places across the world. Transcending boundaries of geography, culture and race we return to villages where we have made friends, often bringing essential supplies, donated educational materials and medical care to some of the most remote and isolated communities on Earth. By working together we grow strong and learn to trust our shipmates and ourselves. By harnessing the power of the wind in our hand-stitched cotton sails we learn awareness and how to spot a problem before it arises. By watching the slowly processing stars on night watch, and the glorious ocean sunsets each evening, we learn to see the sublime in the every day. The things you learn aboard PICTON CASTLE, and the friendships you make aboard, last a lifetime.

Aboard the ship right now, sailing westwards across the Indian Ocean, we have an exceptional gang of men and women of all ages and all backgrounds, hailing from a dozen different countries and every corner of the globe; Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Canada, USA, Tonga, Fiji, England and more. What brings them together is a commitment to experiencing a life at sea under sail, to the ship, her voyages; a down-to-Earth saltiness and a sense of adventure.

Now we are looking for the next generation of mariners to join our crew and write the next chapter of the PICTON CASTLE story. No sailing experience is necessary – it’s far more important to be a good shipmate, though you must be reasonably fit. More than anything you must want to join us on this adventure and want to see the world beyond your horizons.

Soon PICTON CASTLE will be rounding the Cape of Good Hope and entering the South Atlantic, there to sail up the coast of Africa and cross to the Caribbean calling at Grenada, Carriacou, Barbados and Dominica before heading north via Bermuda, to her homecoming in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada. After three years voyaging westwards around the world, it’s set to be quite the celebration.

Join us in Cape Town, South Africa in January 2015 or in Cape Verde in March 2015. Sail with us as we cross the Atlantic Ocean, cross the equator and cruise the magical islands of the real Caribbean. We will be visiting friends we have made over the years, sailing our small boats in the crystal clear water and practicing beach landings on the perfect white sand. We’ll be sailing on and off the hook, tacking the ship about, climbing aloft and handling sails. We’ll learn sail-making, rigging, small boat handling and celestial navigation, but first we’ll learn to sail our ship across oceans.

If you’ve never been afloat before, or if you already have one foot in the sea and want to advance into traditional seamanship, then now is the time.

The world’s oceans and its trade winds are waiting, come join the adventure!

Cape Town to Cape Verde, Jan 3 to March 20: Cape Town, South Africa to Luderitz Namibia, St Helena UK, Dakar Senegal, Cape Verde Islands. Cape Verde to Lunenburg,

March 20 to May 16: Cape Verde, transatlantic to the Eastern Caribbean: Grenada and the Grenadines, St Vincent, Bequia, Dominica, Martinique, and other islands of the Caribbean, Bermuda and Lunenburg.

The workshop provides a great opportunity for personal growth and freeing yourself of limitations that are holding you back from living your life to your full potential. Register now for a great experience.

Space is limited – Register early! Click the Registration link below.

UNFOLD TO YOUR FULL POTENTIAL – Introduction to Bach Flowers

DATES: Saturday & Sunday, November 29 & 30,  9:30 am-5 pm

“Health depends on being in harmony with our souls.” Dr. Edward Bach

Bach Flower essences are subtle plant medicines. They were developed in England during the 1930s by Dr. Edward Bach to assist in healing on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level.

This intensive workshop integrates theory and practice and provides a great opportunity to truly experience and get to know these fascinating flower essences. You will learn how to incorporate flower essences into your daily life, so that they may encourage true healing and assist you in unfolding to your full potential or simply support you through challenging times.

You will walk away from this class knowing that the Bach Flowers can truly make a positive difference in your life – like a newly found friend who accompanies you on your Journey to Health!

You will also learn how to create your own flower essences.

NOTE: This workshop requires the active participation of the students.

IMMUNIZATIONS

In the past, instructions for the anti-viral and anti-bacterial homeopathic remedies mentioned in the previous post were as follows: “Immunizations: 3 drops, 3 times daily, 3 times per month for the first 2 years of life.”

Due to more controls in the natural health industry in Canada the wording has now been changed but you can still find it on websites in other countries!

Please also check out the new NVIC (National Vaccination Information Centre) PINTEREST BOARDS AND VACCINE FAILURE WALL

BIG SAVINGS – FLU SEASON – SPECIAL

The flu season is once again upon us and I heard on the news that free vaccinations are available in Alberta for anyone over the age of 6 months.

How about an alternative that involves healthy lifestyle choices to support the immune system and a preventative approach with a homeopathic regime?

Many people, young and old, have since many years successfully used a treatment protocol that includes the following remedies.

1. Immune system fortifier
2. An anti-bacterial
3. An anti-viral
4. Vitamin D – high quality drops
(See more detailed information on these products below)

The protocol can be implemented as a preventative measure throughout the fall and winter and stepped up in case of an acute infection.

For infants under the age of 6 months you can apply the anti-viral and anti-bacterial formulas externally. It really works.

Total cost $84 (instead of $110) as long as supplies last. With the purchase of the “combo” you will receive detailed information and instructions.

Please call 780.532.2464 if you are interested in purchasing the flu season package.

Green Blessings,
Gudrun

IMMUNE SYSTEM FORTIFIER

For all conditions of immune deficiency incl. autoimmune disorders causing an increased susceptibility to infectious disease; rebuilds and regulates the immune system. During the flu & cold season it is best combined with Bio 87 (anti-bacterial) & Bio 88 (anti-viral).

BACTERIAL INFECTIONS

For all bacterial infections including strep and staph infections; stimulates and supports the immune system and prevents imbalances of bacteria in the organism.

VIRAL INFECTIONS

For all viral infections including influenza, cold sores, mono, influenza, Epstein Barr virus; helps to build up natural defenses against viruses and shortens recovery time from acute infections.

VITAMIN D – DROPS

Vitamin D helps protect a number of important functions in the body including the proper functioning of the immune system. According to some literature it is an effective prevention for the flu; as well it helps ward off many chronic immune related ailments; Also recommended for SAD (Seasonal Affected Disorder) during the winter months.

ORGANIC MEAT – AVAILABLE IN GRANDE PRAIRIE AREA

Personally I have been a happy vegetarian for over 23 years; however for those of you who enjoy eating meat I strongly suggest that you only consume meat that has been raised without chemicals as well as in an ethical way. Following is the information of two local producers that sell certified organic meat.

1. Jerry Kitt at First Nature Farms (chicken) – www.firstnaturefarms.ab.ca
2. Levke and Peter Eggers, 780.568.3805 (grass fed beef and lamb)

BREAST THERMOGRAPHY versus MAMMOGRAMS

Ever wondered about the safety and accuracy of mammograms? Are you aware of possible alternatives such as breast thermography?

Please pass on the following information on to as many women as possible.

Breast Thermography clinic coming to Dawson Creek to do breast/cranial thermography Sept 21/22, 2014. Call Cindy Peever, R.N. at 250-596-9119 and leave a message or contact her at thermographynorthernbc@gmail.com or www.thermographynorthernbc.com.

What is BREAST THERMOGRAPHY?

Breast Thermography is a form of breast screening using digital infrared imaging. No squeezing of breasts required, no radiation yet very reliable in early detection of abnormal breast tissue. It provides the earliest evidence of breast disease with an accuracy of 90%. This means in 90% of the cases the scan accurately indicates presence or absence of dis-ease. It shows the function, physiology and metabolism of breast tissue and gives a picture of the cell activity in breast tissue. Usually, abnormal cells like cancer cells are hotter than normal cells. A breast thermography scan shows the heat (temperature) difference between normal breast tissue and problematic areas.

Breast thermography is a very reliable tool in early detection for abnormal cell development; however a small percentage of cancers are non-hypervascular which means they do not produce extra heat.

MAMMOGRAMS

Mammograms on the other hand use x-rays to detect a mass. X-rays don’t pass through the mass as easily as through normal breast tissue. Mammograms work best for soft post-menopausal breast tissue and for slow growing tumors. They are not effective for young, dense breast tissue, large breasts, fibro-cystic breasts, breasts with breast implants, pregnant and breast feeding women as well as women on hormone replacement therapy. The rate of false-positive readings with about 25% is high (suggested disease where there is none) as is the false negative rate of about 20% (missed tumors).

Dr. Mercola (www.mercola.com) just posted an article about mammograms providing a wealth of information.

EDUCATE YOURSELF ABOUT YOUR OPTIONS AND THEN DECIDE WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU!

Both are gentle and non-invasive ways of identifying inherited strengths, weaknesses and current challenges on the physical, emotional and spiritual level.

HARSH REALITY: MEDICAL ERRORS – A COMMON OCCURRENCE

”A 2012 report stated that 38,000 to 43,000 deaths occur annually in Canada in connection with health-care delivery. That is the equivalent of 80 jumbo jets crashing every year – one every five days or so. According to the author William Charney, a veteran health and safety officer in health care and author of numerous books on health-care safety, the actual number of deaths is undoubtedly greater because of the high rates of non-reporting.”

I have come across statistics televised on national television in the US a few years ago that were even higher (1-3 jumbo jets/day). Numbers like this raise many concerns and questions. For example why is the health food industry so unfairly targeted these days with many products being taken away from the consumer?

Even though medicine has lots of positive practices to offer and has been saving many people’s lives it is advisable to be aware of preventative measures a person can take when dependent on the medical profession for health care. The article “PREVENTIVE MEASURES FOR MEDICAL MISTAKES” HTTP://WWW.HANS.ORG/MAGAZINE [1] published by HANS (Health Action Network Society) provides some great suggestions.

MAKE YOUR FOOD YOUR MEDICINES & YOUR MEDICINES YOUR FOOD

I just got back from teaching at a herb conference in the Kootenays. A special treat was a one day “foraging” workshop. We harvested herbs and prepared a real feast from the treasures we found. See menu below.

I encourage you to spend time in nature and benefit from the bountiful menu that Mother Earth provides for us. Start “grazing” and sample the different plants, get to know some of them, be creative and add them to your cooking.

Feel free to share any of your recipes on this page.

Green Blessings,
Gudrun

FORAGING MENU

  • Burdock and Vegetable Soup
  • Salad: Cattail root, Heal-All, Red Clover, Chickweed, Miners Lettuce in Field Raspberry Vinaigrette
  • Burdock Relish
  • Quail eggs on braised Plantain
  • Oatmeal dumplings in Elderberry sauce
  • Thimble leaf dolmas: onions, quinoa, pennywort, raisins
  • Saskatoon berry crisp
  • Saskatoon berry and Cattail pollen muffins

Thought of the Day

Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

“Many people walk in and out of your life, but only love will leave footprints in your heart…”

HEMP HEARTS & VEGETARIANS

On Sale from now until the end of June.

$13/container (regular $15) or $115 for a case of 9. Please call to make arrangements for pick-up and to make sure they are in stock.

Vegetarians are at risk of two possible nutritional deficiencies: taurine and vitamin B 12, both found in animal protein.Taurine, an amino acid is deficient in about 84% of depressed individuals and in many with epilepsy. B 12 is ordinarily present only in animal protein.

Hemp hearts are the best source of protein. They have about 33% of quality protein, better than the best sirloin tip beef and far better than fish. They are the best source of essential fats, vitamins and enzymes on the planet. Hemp hearts are the only vegetable containing taurine.

Hemp hearts are the shelled seed of simple hemp, a non-hallucinatory relative of marijuana.

Hemp fibre is the longest and strongest of all natural fiber and requires no fertilizer of pesticides etc, to grow exuberantly. It produces 4 times as much fibre per acre as trees. Indeed, it is a superb source for making biomass alcohol,–far superior to corn!! In fact, hemp is the oldest known agricultural crop, used as a source for rope, cloth and paper.

So, vegans and vegetarians, rejoice and eat up! Add hemp hearts to all your meals incl. fruits, salads, baking, smoothies… the sky is the limit.

MAKE YOUR FOODS YOUR MEDICINES!

Gluten Free Scone Recipe

I suggest you start by cutting out wheat and increasing your vegetable and fruit intake. If you have a blender or juicer replace one of your regular meals with a liquid meal. You will be surprised about the difference this little change makes for your well-being. It is a matter of getting used to the changes and realizing how many options there really are.

RECIPE

Put into the food processor:

  • 3 ½ cups of almond meal or flour
  • 5 tablespoons of arrowroot flour
  • ½ cup honey
  • 4 tablespoons of coconut milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 6 tablespoons coconut oil
  • One-half cup or more of currants or dried pomegranate, blueberries or cherries and some crushed pecans, cashews or walnuts.

Mix well.
Spoon drop 7 or 8 equal amounts of dough onto a coconut oil well-greased flat Pyrex dish. Round with your fingers into equal biscuit sized pieces and flatten with fingers, so that final scone is about ¾ to an inch thick.
Bake at 350 degrees 20 minutes until nicely browned.

If you can resist, let them cool before you taste them!!!

You may want to eat them with nut butter such as almond butter or hazelnut butter. If you eat dairy you can add a slice of “real” cheese (available at health food stores).

ENJOY!
