“I used to skim through your newsletters every month. Now I read them properly because it’s clear that you have a genuine care for the health of your readers; a far cry from many of the other newsletters I used to receive that were just there to sell me something.” A Balfour, Edinburgh

– – – – –

I received this feedback from a reader (which I thank her for) as it prompted me to review what we offer against what’s being promoted online.

From time to time I flick through the pages of the Health & Wellbeing sections on the online shopping websites for new products or unique approaches to health that might be worth looking into.

More often than not I find the latest products that address particular health conditions to be both overpriced and questionable.

And part of me suspects that some of the products are merely cashing in when a product is ‘hot’.

Don’t get me wrong – if something is worthwhile I will promote it but I’ll always try it out first.

These days we have to be careful with our money.

By way of example there are usually a range of new weight loss products and courses that claim to bring about flat bellies, reduce dress sizes before your wedding or put the “zing” back in your marriage.

There’s also the “secret weapon” for losing weight or the “magic” pills and “miracle” liquid drops that do wonders for your shape and stamina.  

They usually don’t.

With these products the buyers have to DO something, when NOT DOING something is what caused their problem in the first place. Fulfilling their dream identity of weighing less or reducing their waist line is why they bought the product in the first place.

Many weight loss products are designed to work only while the buyer is taking them. Once they stop, the pounds pile on again.

If none of this applies to you, you have my respect.  But have you ever downloaded an ebook and not read it?  Even a free one.

I’m guilty here too!

Over the years we’ve lost our Ancient Herbal Remedies (military activity in Syria), Pyramidal Memories Transmutation (encoders stolen from our car in Valparaiso, Chile), Blotting Brushes (manufacturer terminated production during lockdown) but there are genuine health alternatives that’ll cost a fraction of the heavily marketed online health products and do a great job:

Back Pain /Primal Posture

Visit Esther Gokhale’s Website or her FaceBook page Gokhale Method for a choice of videos and sensible advice. There are often free themed online workshops, the current agenda showing a schedule up to early August 2022 in English, German and Slovenian. This is stellar stuff. 

Less Damaging Methods of Carrying

High or Low Blood Pressure

It’ll go against everything you’ve been told but mineral-rich Celtic Sea Salt does wonders for reducing blood pressure (and a variety of other conditions) confirmed by years of delighted customers who’ve tried it.  It’ll make your cooking taste better as well.  I wrote this about Celtic Sea Salt recently.

Weight Management

The spleen is an organ you learned nothing about in school biology yet in Traditional Chinese Medicine it is considered the “Emperor of Organs”. The spleen controls the thyroid, the thyroid determines the rate of your body metabolism.  Improve the spleen function, you lose weight and your body lights up.

Forget pills, standing on scales and counting calories; read Daverick Leggett’s book “Helping Ourselves: A Guide to Traditional Chinese Food Energetics” for a guide to a better functioning spleen….and consider what you eat from now on.

Improved Mineral Levels

The problem is two-fold.

FIRST, almost everyone is SEVERELY deficient in magnesium — even those who get the “recommended daily dose”…

Because higher stress levels (common for ambitious folks like us) require much higher than RDA doses.

And SECOND…Most magnesium supplements fail to help you beat stress…

Now that you understand how critical magnesium is for everything — it might be tempting to run out to your local drug or health food store and buy some magnesium.

That would be a mistake, though — because most magnesium products do nothing, for two primary reasons:

❌ They are synthetic, unnatural, and not recognized by your body… and…


Which means they are missing the various forms of magnesium needed to target various organs in the body and to handle all sources of stress — and boost your performance in every key area.

Most people get 1-2 forms of synthetic magnesium (at best); which is why they typically feel little or nothing from supplements.

But there’s a miracle that occurs when your body gets ALL the magnesium that it needs, in all the forms that it needs at the optimal dosage.

Most people in the western world suffer from a lack of minerals. 

How Minerals Benefit Us All

An online health site recently recommended the following minerals for a healthy thyroid:

iodine – selenium – zinc – boron – copper – chromium – magnesium – molybdenum

Every single one of these minerals is present within the Celtic Sea Salts.  And they are combined together in the ratio the Mother Nature intended – not separated and packaged individually.

To keep up my mineral levels, most days I boil the kettle, throw in a healthy pinch of Celtic Sea Salt and drink it. As one customer in Devon used told me “It’s the same taste as when I go surfing”.

You can walk into a vitamin shop on your high street or go online and spend many £££’s to buy these minerals individually……or you can take a more realistic approach and get them as a beneficial salt

To source quality salts for your kitchen (and turn you into a better cook!) click on one of the links below:

• Australia Salt Of The Earth  

or just key “Celtic Sea Salt (and your country)” into your browser.

Iodine: Every single cell in your body requires iodine. Long gone are the days when a school matron would dab your graze or cut with cotton wool and iodine. Yet the alternatives of modern medicine don’t even come close to the effectiveness of iodine.

Our bottle of iodine is used almost daily. I always add some drops when loading up a new bottle to the water dispenser in the kitchen. I also add a few drops to a small glass of water at night and rinse the contents around my mouth for 30 seconds before going to bed.  It kills any and all bugs and is far better than relying on fluoride which has finally been classified as a neurotoxin.

It Took Them Decades And Much Pressure Before They Admitted To This

If you really want to learn how to look after your teeth, gums and your mouth (where 80% of diseases begin), get a copy of Dr Elmar Jung’s book “Shut Your Mouth and Open Wide” (read a chapter here

Iodine was perceived by medical doctors in the 19th Century as a universal medicine – a gift from Nature to humanity. 

In her forthcoming book IODINE, Miriam Hodosy writes “Iodine is essential for life. No life can exist without it. Its home is the sea where primal life was born. Humans need it from the womb to the walking stick, for growing up, enjoying optimal health, generating energy, and thinking clearly”.


We need vitamins as much as we need minerals but don’t fall victim to the discounted ‘Special Offer’ deals in your supermarket.  They’re not deals if you pay money for something that’s probably junk….and I’m being kind when I use the word ‘probably’.

Before you buy your next bottle of vitamins, watch this short clip (2:45) on the dirty secret of vitamin companies and from now on always read the labels.

Quit Smoking

Even though mankind has found ways to smoke nicotine for hundreds of years, we’re told from an early age that smoking is ‘bad’ for you.  That statement made me wonder whether the tobacco is doing the damage or might it be the 7000 questionable chemicals found in cigarettes – the addictive nicotine, hydrogen cyanide, formaldehyde, lead, arsenic, ammonia, radioactive uranium or the benzene? 

It was your parents’ job to warn you about the effects of smoking, not mine.  Thereafter it’s your choice. 

There are countless online smoking cessation courses but none of them will work unless YOU ARE READY to stop. You must think of yourself as a NON-SMOKER rather than an EX-SMOKER.

Were I in that position, before I spent money on something that may or may not benefit me, I’d read Alan Carr’s book the “Easy Way To Stop Smoking”. 

I’ve read sections of the book; it is very well written and compelling. I recommend it because it’ll put you into the right frame of mind for your next step. At over 1 million copies sold the book must be worth it.

Second hand copies are available online for a few pounds, euros or dollars.

Snoring/Night Toilet Visits/Anti-Ageing/Down’s Syndrome/Asthma 

You can spend a fortune buying “Stop Snoring” courses that show little improvement.  And then there’s the increasingly popular approach of taping your mouth up at night.  No. No. No.

The Lip Trainer works much better than anything I’ve looked at because it doesn’t claim to remedy the condition; instead it addresses its root cause by strengthening the lip muscles ensuring you always breathe through your nose instead of your mouth. 

It’ll save your partner from many sleepless nights and he/she will be thankful for the effort you made.

The Lip Trainer: A Potential Marriage Saver!

The difference?  Greater oxygen intake when you breathe through your nose and not your mouth. Big difference. It definitely helps with the other conditions listed above as well.

If you’re suffering from any form of sinus condition, all you need to do is hum on your exhale.  Yes hum!  It’s about increasing the absorption of nitric toxic which you’re exhaling anyway.

“There is geometry in the humming of the strings, there is music in the spacing of the spheres” Pythagoras

Read the article on humming in this newsletter specifically on humming and listen in particular to what Dr Klinghardt had to say about it all those years ago.
