This eBook takes a natural approach to improving your health, especially if you have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). CFS is also referred to by different names around the world. It is called ME and Fibromyalgia and CFIDS.
Jacob Teitelbaum MD, a well known world expert on CFS, thinks that there may be many causes of CFS/Fibromyalgia. However the most important thing is for people to start to sleep well, control their pain, to start feeling healthy and be part of a community. Dr Teitlebaum had CFS himself as a young man and has specialised in treatment of the illness using a natural approach.
In my ebook I also use a natural approach to improving health. Medical men seemed to have no answers and I was left to myself to find simple, natural things that worked for me. I share this information in my ebook. I tell the story of my experience with CFS/Fibromyalgia. For a long time it seemed that I would not get better but gradually my health improved.
There are different levels of CFS. Some people feel tired for a few months, some are racked with pain in every nook and cranny, joint and muscle of their body and others suffer from prolonged sore throat, sinusitis and chest infections for months or years on end.
Here are some suggestions of different modalities you can try from crystal healing to flower essences to homeopathy to herbs.
You choose. It's your body, your life.
Chakras are Connected Throughout the Body
Many people are familiar with the concept of chakras of the body but few connect them with the legs. A quick glance at the colours of the legs in the drawing here will show you the association of the chakras of the legs with the corresponding chakras in the body.
Refer to this article here to tell you about chakras in the body.
Chakras of the Body
When you can see the colour connections it is easier to understand. So, if you have something wrong with the top of your thigh - the blue area - do you also have something wrong with your shoulders or your throat area?
If you are an artist or even done some painting at school you may have heard of complementary colours. These are colours that look very good together. They are opposites on the colour wheel. There is a connection between these colours. They give each other a sparkle if they are in a painting together or if you wear them together.
You will notice where we use the red and green a lot is at Christmas time. Everybody loves red and green at this time. Blue and orange is used at the beach.
There is a connection between the chakras of these colours also. So the ankle area of the leg may be connected with the blue area of the leg etc.
Using Complementary Chakras for Healing
Often when I do Crystal Healing I notice these connections. If a person has a headache - the violet area, sometimes it cannot be healed in that area. If I take the pendulum to the yellow area of the body, around the stomach, the headache is removed.
When there is a problem with the legs, check out which area of the leg it is in. See if there is a connection with the same colour chakra on the body. If not, check out the complementary colour on the leg or the complementary colour on the body.
A young boy I treated for many years had a connection between his ankle - the orange chakra of the leg and the throat, the blue chakra area of the body. He had a lot of sore throats. His mother could tell when he was getting a sore throat before he could. Two or three days before his throat showed any symptoms his right ankle would swell. It was a very good indicator.
A young lady I know was in hospital having an inspection done of her fallopian tubes. These are in the orange area of the body. She was told that when she woke up she would probably have pain in her shoulders. This was a common occurence. The shoulders are the blue area of the body, the complementary colour to the fallopian tubes. The nurses knew that this happened but did not know why.
Tissue salts are a safe, natural medicine
Tissue Salts or Cell Salts
Dr Schuessler, a medical doctor in Germany, promoted a new system of natural medicines in the early to mid 1800s. He believed that our body needed twelve tissue salts or cell salts. These were also sometimes called bio-chemic salts. The salts were needed by every cell in the body for the body to stay healthy. When something went wrong with the body, that is, it became ill, we were deficient in one or more of the salts. By providing it in minute doses, we could balance our body and bring it to health.
Tissue salts or cell salts are the basic chemical building blocks found in the body.
Because of the benefits tissue salts have given people, they are still a very popular form of alternative medicine 200 years later, a form of natural medicine that people can safely use for themselves.
Micro doses of minerals are quickly absorbed through the mouth and these stimulate the body’s natural healing responses. They can be used to treat fever, coughs and colds, teething, muscle cramps, sore throat, skin problems and much more.
Reasons Why Tissue Salts are so Popular
Tissue salts are still very popular because
The name salts does not mean that there is any table salt in the product. It is a way of getting the minerals into a substance that is readily absorbed by the body. The subtlety, harmlessness and effectiveness of these preparations have been clinically proven for well over two hundred years.
How to Take Tissue Salts
It is best not to touch the tablets. Tip the required number of tablets into the lid of the bottle and tip them into the mouth. Do not swallow them yet. Let them dissolve in the mouth then swallow. It is important to let them dissolve in the mouth. This is why the substances are in such fine micro doses.
The tablets are immediately absorbed through the saliva. The body does not need to break down the minerals and so they are readily available.
How much do I Take?
Illnesses can be acute or chronic. Acute illnesses come on, have a short life and the immune system of the body fights them off. Chronic illnesses last a long time, maybe months or years.
There are a few different brands of tissue salts. Be guided by how many tablets to take according to the brand. However, for acute illnesses, tablets can be taken every half an hour until relief is obtained. Usually no more than 6 doses daily. When relief comes, ease back to 3 or 4 doses daily until the illness is gone.
For chronic illness take 3 doses daily.
Different Names, Different Brands
Tissue salts are made by different companies. These include Martin & Pleasance, an Australian brand and New Era. New Era tablets melt in the mouth easily. Remember, when looking for these in the health food shop they can also be called Schuessler salts or Bio-chemic salts. All do the same thing - supply micro doses of minerals to the cells in the body.
Where to Buy Them
Tissue salts can be bought in health food stores. It is a good idea to have a range of these at home for when the children have a fever or sore throat, or you have a headache or aching and tired legs.
For serious problems always see a medical professional. These remedies are not meant to treat serious illnesses alone but you can combine them with prescription medicines.
Gaseous chemicals are bad for everyone
Following on from my article about Renewable Fuel for our cars comes this article showing how there is a link between petroluem and allergies.
Crude Oil to Fuel
The crude oil found in reserves beneath the earth's crust is sucked out from its resting place where it has been for thousands of years. It is then refined into thousands of products. Our world is now made up of products from crude oil.
The thick, black sticky oil contains hydrocarbons like methane, ethane, propane, butane and pentane. You have probably heard of many of these. It is then made into petrol, gasoline, deisel, jet fuel, kerosene, asphalt, heating and liquified petroleum gas.
Crude Oil to Chemicals
Products made from these substances are pharmaceuticals, solvents, fertilizers, pesticides, paraffin wax and plastics.
Can you see how our world has been influenced by crude oil?
Some Gases form these oils are
Butane which is used to power cigarette lighters
Propane which is used for cooking and heating and transportation
Any fuel that burns with a sooty flame may be carcinogenic, that is, cause cancer.
Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS)
Some people react badly to chemicals, sometimes many different chemicals including volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These VOCs include perfumes, petrol or gasoline, deisel, smoke, solvents and are found in paint.
These people usually react to other allergens as well, for example pollens, house dust mites and pet fur and dander.
Symptoms of Multiple Chemical Sensitivity
Toxic chemicals known to be Immune System Disruptors include organochlorines, formaldehyde, pesticides, herbicides and organophosphates. This means that they can upset our immune system.
I hope you have not been frightened off by all the big chemical words, but you would probably have heard of many of them. Now you know how they are all connected.

Lemons have a rich yellow colour
Lemon Juice Cleanse
Drinking lemon juice is a wonderful cleanser and strengthener for our body. It is good to have at the start of the day to help cleanse our body and stimulate the stomach acids ready to break our fast.
Lemon juice is antibacterial, antiviral. It has an alkaline effect on our body. Generally our bodies are too acidic and we need to eat and drink more alkalizing foods so lemons are a good source of this. Because of lemon's antibacterial and antiviral effects it is good to drink it when we feel a cold or sore throat coming on.
How to make Lemon tea
Cut a lemon in half. Put it in a bowl and in the microwave for 22 seconds. When the lemon is warm it is easier to get the juice out. If you have a lemon sqeezer this is great to grind the lemon on to release most of the juice. Otherwise just squeeze it with your hand. Use the juice of half a lemon in a mug, pour in hot water and add a teaspoon of honey. If you can get Manuka Honey this is all the better to use as it has higher healing properties.
Sip and enjoy.
A Secret - Don't Tell
Here's a little secret but don't tell my husband I told you. The dear soul has problems with things blowing up in the microwave eg poached eggs because he sometimes (all the time) forgets to prick the yolk. Well, one day he thought he would make me some lemon tea. He put the WHOLE lemon in the microwave (didn't even stab the skin) and watched aghast as, when it warmed, it took off flying in the air, round and round inside the microwave! Remember to cut the lemon before heating it this way. I can just see you all trying it out now!
Sore Throat Remedy
When we feel the first touches of a sore throat looming make a gargle of
lemon juice - 1-2 teaspoons
salt - 1/4 teaspoon
warm water - half a glass
How to Gargle
Take a small mouthful of this liquid, tip your head back, close of the back of your throat with the back of your tongue and blow air from your throat into your mouth. This stops the liquid from going down and has the effect of making bubbles of the liquid swirl around your mouth. Swirl the liquid around your mouth. Spit the first lot out as this will have the highest number af bacteria in it. It is safe to swallow the rest of the mixture.
