When is the last time you actually did take a break?
How are you? Seriously!
When did you last just stop and do nothing?
No TV, no scrolling, no netflix, no electronic device, no chores, no checking off one more thing on the to do list (that never ending script), no making a meal or a drink, no yoga, no go for a walk, no making plans, no figuring something out, no judging yourself, no NOTHING?
Stopping to do no-thing? Really stop and take a moment of nothingness, how about 10 moments of nothingness?
Does that seem impossible?
The thought unimaginable?
If so, why? Is your mind insisting that you do something?
Even if it's doing something you like?
Either way, however you feel at this moment.
Could you stop and do no-thing for 10 whole moments/minutes?
Would you stop and do no-thing for 10 whole moments/minutes?
I invite you to do so now.
Close your eyes
Let all the thoughts go by and do nothing, in this moment.
Stop and do nothing.

If you happen to like lobster rolls and prefer the butter choice over the mayo. Try adding some fresh thyme to the butter while heating it, to take on the flavor and use that in your roll, or as a dip. A hint of thyme can make your meal go from a 4* to a 5!

I grew up in a family where my dad did not like dandelions growing in the yard. As a devout christian who seeks to love and be of service as much as he can, he pretty much hated dandelions and had his special tool to dig them out, trying to get the whole root so it would stop propagating.
I had no idea that the dandelion was really a wonderful gift from nature for our body's to help maintain the health of our liver and kidney's, like so many I have come to know who learned all about this abundant weed from their grandparents and how to make it into food, wine and even cookies! Neither did my dad!
I just thought they were beautiful fun flowers and loved blowing the white puffy seeds off their stem when they were ready to fly. Needless to say, my dad was not happy any time I did such a thing!
Do you have a parent or grandparent to teach you about dandelions and herbs?
Obviously, I did not and came to be an Herbalist due to being in dire straits, you can read that brief story here, and always wondered why the heck some kids grew up using dandelions as food and some grew up with parents ripping them out and throwing them away.
Did you know that before 1847 almost everyone in the U.S.A. used herbs, homeopathic and naturopathic health remedies as their #1, that were taught by the Native Americans and Europeons? Using these natural ways was the only way to truly help the body heal itself at the core issues for true healing is why they did so. Nature's plants are free to top it off!
What the heck happened?
Treatments had started in which blood would be drained from the body to "get the disease or devil out", cutting out limbs and whatever wasn't working right would happen and heavy dosages of something like mercury and lead would be given as another alternative for medical management. That's how allopathic medicine started out and the A.M.A. in a lump sum. Go here for more of the story.
Then I discovered what the true story behind 'snake oil' is! Do you know? It put me in a state of holy crap! Now everything is looking even clearer and no wonder why I've been having such a time being shunned by some friends and not taken seriously by many family members, even though I had huge results using herbal medicine with my kids, husband, myself and willing friends! Honestly, I'm grateful for continuing to be that "black sheep", listening to my intuition and overcoming my fear and self esteem issues in order to teach others what I had learned and embedded into my life from direct experience in seeing how well the body balanced and healed itself.
Oh here's what I found out about snake oil, there is the Chinese medicine oil from a snake to help with joint pain, but the well known, Quackery snake oil, which was used to turn the tables on holistic health care was invented by William Rockefeller. Mainly the petroleum derived oil called mineral oil claimed to cure cancer (also called ( "Rock oil") and many other frivolous claims.

A dear friend of mine shared this pertinent science break through that you do not see in the news, from my knowledge that is.
Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. It’s the raw material that led to the formation of stars, galaxies, planets, and all living things. In many ways it too is an ether that binds us. Classical science doesn’t yet fully understand the many different ways that hydrogen works within the human body. It is known however, that it’s an integral part of our physiology and if we are not getting enough of it our bodies are not able to function at peak potential. In the last ten years alone hydrogen supplementation has demonstrated remarkable healing properties against a wide variety of commonly encountered health challenges. Perhaps we should start viewing ourselves as genuine star children and recognize a key element in our proper care and feeding...
Wishing you well,

"These findings indicated that hydrogen-rich saline promotes nerve regeneration across long gaps, suggesting that hydrogen-rich saline could be used as a neuroprotective agent for peripheral nerve injury therapy."
"Despite the application of nerve grafts and considerable microsurgical innovations, the functional recovery across a long peripheral nerve gap is generally partial and unsatisfactory. Thus, additional strategies are required to improve nerve regeneration across long nerve gaps. Hydrogen possesses antioxidant and anti-apoptotic properties, which could be neuroprotective in the treatment of peripheral nerve injury; however, such a possibility has not been experimentally tested in vivo. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effectiveness of hydrogen-rich saline in promoting nerve regeneration after 10-mm sciatic nerve autografting in rats. The rats were randomly divided into two groups and intraperitoneally administered a daily regimen of 5 ml/kg hydrogen-rich or normal saline. Axonal regeneration and functional recovery were assessed through a combination of behavioral analyses, electrophysiological evaluations, Fluoro-Gold™ retrograde tracings and histomorphological observations. The data showed that rats receiving hydrogen-rich saline achieved better axonal regeneration and functional recovery than those receiving normal saline. These findings indicated that hydrogen-rich saline promotes nerve regeneration across long gaps, suggesting that hydrogen-rich saline could be used as a neuroprotective agent for peripheral nerve injury therapy."
