MAGNESIUM – It combats Depression !

July 30, 2017

We are finding out more and more as more and more is being REVEALED, that is turning the thoughts and beliefs on HOW we have lived life and WHAT is best for us in order to THRIVE !

I had to go through so much pain in my 20’s and 30’s from my monthly menses on 1st day. I only found out about MAGNESIUM towards the end of that time and how it was lacking, and in such small amounts, that takes away the pain. Hmmm. We are a delicate balance, aren’t we ?  If we can keep the chemical cocktail that was us upon birth, we can keep aches and pains at bay. We don’t really focus on that, especially as we age.

The average human body contains about 25 grams of magnesium, one of the six essential minerals that must be supplied in the diet.

I also started taking it daily to keep my bowels moving well. Imagine that. It works so well. At least 50% of our western world has impacted bowels of some kind. No meds needed. Just one capsule per day of 250- 500mg Magnesium. If eating Thanksgiving meal, take two with meal. That simple.

Recently I went to buy some more and compared the product called CALM to a Sundown Naturals Mag 500mg. caps. Calm was twice the price and didn’t supply as much as the caps. I now saved money, take an easy 1 cap / day and feel better.

I am part of the brilliant Food Revolution Network since its inception with the ‘Robbins Clan’ from Baskin-Robbins fame. How lucky John Robbins went this way with our health and relationship with FOOD. That stuff we put in our bodies more often than anything else in life. Our fuel.

What kind of fuel are you putting into your engine today? You put Premium grade into your car and get regular oil changes and preventive maintenance there, so why not with the most important ‘vehicle’, your body? Especially our kids bodies.

I know it seems hard and what to choose, well, that’s what I look for and write about. Enjoy this and sign up with the ‘Robbins’, Food Revolution Network, for the best info out there !!

Cleansing – what’s it all about … today, pre 2012?

July 7, 2011

We just started a 3 day cleanse.  I have joined forces (energies) with Jess, who has figured it out on her own and me, bringing in what I have learned over the last years too. She’s part indigenous Australian, age 28 and I’m part Hawaiian, age 54.

WOW.  It’s never been so easy, or gentle yet profound and I’m not even hungry – from Day 1.  Well, this is day 2.5, having started the night before Day 1.  After watching what ‘going to Source’ cleanse is like in Hawaii, the SEAWATER CLEANSE, I really wanted to be able to offer a middle of the road Cleanse.  Well, this is what we’ve come up with.

The newest bit of information that I’d like to impart is what we’re lacking in the U.S.  Most cleansing products are made for the general public.  Here in Australia, I went into an apothecary (an herbal store) and naturopathic doctors are all on hand, ready to serve you.  I was in heaven.  I even took a picture of the wonderful alchemic moment, where the N.D. was beginning to mix it up, into a tincture for me.  It felt so right.

Jess and I knew what we wanted from this cleanse – pretty basic, but we added a few tweaks – especially for my aging hormones.

We are drinking something every hour, mixing it up between juices that are alkaline and lemon drinks with b-carbonate soda and Jess’ cleansing tea that she sources and makes herself.  Brilliant, as Jamie Oliver would say.  He’s also a hero of mine.  He just started a MINISTRY OF FOOD in Australia where there will be food centers and roving wagons of learning about FOOD.

Jess and I are having the deepest conversations about what matters to us.  This is the best benefit of cleansing – taking this time out to look at what ‘shit’ is coming up and not stuffing it back down but looking, thanking it, not taking it personally and saying goodbye to it.  This is why both Jess and I believe that physical bodily cleansing can heal the planet more than anything – as we have really not dealt with our ’emotional body’, en masse, which this brings up to look at.

We are having some of the best conversations i’ve ever had, about ‘what matters’ to me, to us.  Going deep.  We will be forever changed, because we are being brutally honest, with no assumptions or taking it personally – so we’re clearing a lot on this level.  This has allowed doors to open that are much more in alignment with my soul and hers.  Where else do we want to be?  My mission at this time in my life is to be absolutely in alignment with my SOUL, it’s purpose.  I’ve spent way too much time trying to ‘do’ other things, that got me a bad gut, an overinflated ego, a failed marriage (well, i don’t believe in failure really, just lessons) working way too hard and not being happy, truly joyful.

Why are we here?  It’s hard to face what we’ve invested our whole lives in knowing and learning to find it doesn’t really matter much.  I call it, “cringe and smile” and keep looking and breathing deeply, (connected, mouth-closed, breathing is phenomenal – check out this website:

So, this is what i’m facing now, after a lifetime of ‘doing’ and not really ‘BEing’ who I really am.  Sure I’ve flitted in and out of my TRUE SELF, but I need to be in that place now – regularly.  Why would we want anything else?  I am seeing the roadblocks and pitfalls now, even more clearly.  If I’m not LOVING myself (what does that really look and FEEL like?) well, that’s where I have gone awry.

Stay tuned to ‘loving ourselves more’, by Cleansing out the physical, healing the emotional and feeling better than you have in, maybe decades.  It’s so much easier than you think.

I’m wide OPEN

Please check out this site and start following the principles of Alkalinity.  One of my fave book titles is, “Alkalize or Die”.  Once you start to learn about this more, you’ll agree.  Order the chart 80/20, it’s the best I’ve ever found cuz it puts our emotions on the list too that cause an acid condition.  We usually only think about the food aspect when it’s only part of it.  What this brings to mind is the MIND – and how powerful it is.  It can elate us or kill us.  Check it out on the chart and look at where Love and Prayer sit on the scale, hmmm.

Create a Great Day – even if it’s hard and you feel like s _ _ _.  We’re more powerful than we think.

A thought turns into words and words turn into action.

Cleansing with Jess in Australia

July 5, 2011

Well, we’ve begun.  I met Jess through the Byron Movement folks who are bringing the people together in some really cool ways.  Check it out :

Jess is 28, part indigenous Australian, an artist, healer and all round pretty aware woman, for any age.  My new best friend.  We can’t stop talking about cleansing.

The really unique thing about her is that she decided that the world needed cleansing and just intuited a lot of it and looked up other information to put together a Cleansing Program, of her own, based mostly on local herbs.  Now she makes her own healing and cleansing herbal teas and mixtures.

Fasting and Cleansing Realities – Day 5

July 3, 2010

Day 5, I broke my fast with juices, coco water & veggie soup broth.  I was too weak, I tried to kill all worms/parasites at once – – not a good idea.  Take it slower than me.

I knew that after traveling and the emotional pain I had just been through, in the last year, needed to be released, so Wormwood, Black Walnut and freshly ground cloves went into my body, 1st thing in AM, lunchtime and evening.  well, 2 days later i was in a healing crisis – – too much detox, too fast.  i really wanted to feel better fast and learned the hard way.
since it was the longest time since i’d fasted and cleared out my guts i was too anxious to let go as i know how good i feel when cleaned and cleared out.  so i cut back 50% and only took it morning and night. what a difference.  i had one watermelon juice and a little later made a veggie soup with the Seawater (all Trace Minerals) drank the broth from it and nearly gained all my energy back.  WOW!!  i learned something.  for my body.  so i experimented with quantities and my body spoke to me to tell me how much i needed.  i went for a swim and gained back even more energy as if the oxygen pumping through my body released the poison i had taken to kill the unseen buggers that may be in my gut – most likely there.

It just so happens that after 3 grueling days of no energy and the 4th day to incorporate transition to juices – the very next day

all 3 of my ‘irons’ in the fire – came to fruition, as if I let something or enough go – – to allow MAJOR Manifestation to happen.  Again, I got out of my own way.  And what a way to discover what that means.  Clean up my ‘temple’ of my body and the mind clears and MANIFESTATION happens? or faster?

I was given a bold YES on all three of my projects that I’m working on, and the cherry on top is that I had enough energy to walk the Land today with the people who are going to assist me in making my/our biggest dream of all come true.  Imagine That.  

well, that’s exactly what i did, IMAGINE THAT for a long time – – through thick and thin, held on to it and it has served me, which will serve so many others.

My momma, one of the oldest living colonic therapists at age 81, still working today, saving people’s lives from prostate cancer, or those dying from worm and parasite infestation – told me to break my fast and that i can get just as good results FOR ME, so i have the energy for what’s coming.  of course, i asked, what’s comin’ momma?  well, being the very clear being that she is, making her more aware and intuitive, so much so that we call her psychic, said, “i don’t know”.  hmm. momma’s been saying that for a year now, but giving me little nudges and words to keep me going.

i get home and there’s a message from momma – “i won 3 times in bingo tonight, they wanted to throw me out”.  hmm. everything happened in 3’s today for momma and me – total manifestation.  she told me yesterday that she’s decided how much she needs for a plane ticket to visit family and today she won that amount in bingo.  and today my dreams came true too. in three’s – for both of us.

well, the reason i’m sharing this is to talk about how related MANIFESTATION is to PURIFICATION of the Self, starting with the physical body which ultimately clears the heart and mind.

dig in and go for the gusto – what have you got to lose?  how happy and healthy are you really – at this moment.
the only thing that worked for me was to clear out the ‘old’ to allow space for the ‘new’ to come in, which serves me so much better in ways i could never have imagined.  basically a better dream built on the best i could imagine, with all the elements and then some.

peace.  go with your gut.

p.s. it feels so damn good to be just drinking and not eating.  i’m not really hungry and when i am i just drink something and i’ve got it down to a science so it doesn’t take much time.  i leave the house with2 or 3 jars of watermelon juice and/or veggie broth and i’m set for the day with lemonday and water as backup. i now have tons of energy and feel better about everything – oh, the excitement of all my imaginings coming true with bonuses i couldn’t have dreamed of – well, probably hasn’t got too much to do with it.

laurel doing 4 day seawater and parasite cleanse/fast

July 2, 2010

hey there – just started my Ionic Trace Minerals implants in colonics with Will Mashburn at Living Light Therapy in Wailuku.  He’s my hero.  He saved his own life by understanding what is in the ocean and clearing out a 7 foot parasite that had probably come into him during the Vietnam War.  Since I met him and have been bringing my Cleansing Yoga Clients to him for the last 4 years – Will has changed his hair color from grey, back to black.

This is the longest period of time that I have not cleansed my body and in the last 9 months I have gone through more physically, emotionally and spiritually than I have in the last 10 years.  It is also the longest period of time I have left Maui and been away from my homeland.  I knew that I picked up lots of new ‘stuff’ in my body, as I was on ‘walkabout’ to venture deeper into my Soul and to find out what others were thinking and talking about – face to face.  Being on a rock in the middle of the ocean tends to lend itself to only knowing what we hear and read and search out via online or tv or paper media – not always the TRUTH.  I’m in search of the TRUTH.  What does that mean, you ask?

Well. . . . it means something different to almost everyone.  To mean, it means – what are we doing here and what am I doing here? and getting as close to my Soul’s purpose as possible, in alignment with the ‘bigger Soul’ and it’s alignment. In other words – I’m in alignment with my true Self and the Higher Self of the Planet.  This means very close to Nature – as Nature to me is God.  If God made us in his/her image, well, what did the Earth contain before Man showed up – lots of Nature, in its pristine state, with all that Man needed, once he showed up.  From pollen that contained most of what we needed to exist on, not gobs and gobs of food, just BREATHE in the nutrients.

Pristine Nature in the Lotus Flower

Did you know that our small intestine is about 22 feet long and only about an inch wide?  How do you think unchewed pieces of steak are going to go through that?  Sure it will be dissolved through the normal processes by the time it gets there but a lot of the time it is not chewed well enough and bits and pieces of meat get stuck here and there in pockets, so over time this becomes one large putrefecation sewer site, that causes most of what ails us.  Then we send down acidifying sodas and smoke and drink (more acid) and the body truly turns into a sewer.  ugh.  It’s so hard to break this cycle that we have been deepening, year after year, generation after generation.

Once we wake up to this fact and start reversing the cycle, the next generation will start to turn the tide in the other direction and maybe, just maybe, our Planet will follow suit.  As above, so below.  If we continue to pollute our own inner soils, why would we think twice about soiling our Mother Earth’s soil – when it’s what we do anyway?  This is why I teach about Cleansing and continually cleanse my own ‘temple’ that was given to us in a pure form, or at least as pure as our mother’s body was and her mother’s body was.
