YOU ASKED ME . . . I got a call recently, from a woman who is a 

hard working,  holding down 2 jobs, who asked me what to do about her . . . . tired, achy feet.

Some Herbs from the Kitchen to treat


If your foot pain is due to some kind of strain, sprain, cut, or soreness, sage can be used to get relief from the discomfort.  It can also reduce foot odor.

  1. Gently rub a handful of sage leaves between your hands and then put them in a pot with a little less than one cup of apple cider vinegar.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for five minutes.
  3. Soak a cotton cloth in the warm solution and then hold it on the affected area.
  4. Repeat the process several times.
    I purchased one exactly like this for less than $20 . . . and use it
    AT LEAST once a week ~ the relief was phenomenal!

Essential oils such as eucalyptus oil, peppermint oil and rosemary oil will help soothe tired, sore and aching feet.
  1. Mix four drops each of eucalyptus oil and rosemary oil and two drops of peppermint oil in hot water.
  2. Soak your feet in it for about 10 minutes.
Next time you suffer from foot pain, simply try any of these natural remedies. However, if the pain is unbearable and does not improve, see your doctor.

When I used the foot bath, I would boil my preferred herbs in a pan on the stove, steep it for 20min or more (sometimes I would boil the herbs before I left for work and let it steep all day, then warm it up in the evening), then pour the herb water into the foot bath. To strengthen the bones, I used comfrey root, and plantain and or mullein to eliminate pain.

Understanding Our Chakras
#3 Solar Plexus ~ Manipura

Manipura is the Sanskrit term meaning 'city of jewels'. It relates to the element of fire and the colour yellow or gold and is often depicted symbolically as a bright glowing Sun. Likewise in the same way that the Sun radiates heat and light throughout the solar system, manipura chakra radiates and distributes heat and prana throughout the entire human body and energy system. Manipura chakra s the centre of our personal power, vitality, dynamism and willpower. It provides our being with confidence, the energy to endure and the self worth and motivation to see projects through to their completion.

Anatomically it is situated just above and behind the navel and governs the solar plexus of nerves and pancreas gland, which control

and her response was "why don't your produce your own show!!!"
V O I L A !

I am soo excited about producing awesome shows and 
programming that will educate, present tools and various 
skills to help you raise your daily "conscious living" choices!

Book(s) Update . . . . 

Herbs are Nature's Medicine
BOOK I: Functional Herbology

Well, it seems that the closer I get to completing the TOC and format of each book, another "book" morphs.

Initially, when I finally made a commitment in 2014  to finally write an herb book, it was definitively "Herbs are Nature's Medicine: Your Handbook to Healing with the Elements!" (See book cover to the right.)

Then as I began seeking counsel from others who self-published, were established,  award-winning authors and owners of web sites offering support and free services to assist the Indie (independent self-publishing) author, someone said, "why don't you do an 'Introduction'  to your first book (thanks Coco), so you can establish a following, a platform, wet your feet, etc.!!!  Hence "INTRO to Herbs are Nature's Medicine:  Healing with the Elements" stuck up its beautiful head.  In this edition (see book cover lower right) the main focus will be on the

 "elements" as few people realize that "As It Is Above,
So It Is Below" is in reality referring to the fact that all the elements that exist in the Universe (macrocosm) ether, air, fire, water, earth and metal, all have an inherent and specific correlation to our inner Universe 

There are a number of additional articles . . . . DON'T MISS OUT ON THE HEALING YOGA POSTURE . . . . . and AN INTERVIEW WITH BROADWAY STAR OF "PIPPIN" AND "CHICAGO" ~ STEPHANIE POPE ~ owner of BIKRAM YOGA EAST HARLEM (my home studio).  Every month I include in my Newsletter an article on one of the 26 postures of Bikram, along with illustrations and explanations of the health benefits, all explained directly from Bikram Choudry himself.
