I am writing a book!

I am writing a book – I guess it is part autobiography about a very lousy abusive childhood and the subsequent survival. But I am finding it is so much more than that. There are so many changes in our way of living over the last 50 years. How many of you realise that 40 +years ago people didn’t have doonas? Quilts were stuffed blankets made by diligent house wives and women’s groups? We had thick sheets and scratchy blankets. 3 blankets were the norm and temperature control was as simple as adding or removing a blanket. What is a blanket? Oh my goodness – there will be some who do not know. A blanket was the same size as a sheet – there were babies, singles & doubles. Each one tightly woven with wool. Much thicker and heavier than a jumper. It was quite heavenly to sleep under because of the heaviness. Think baby or Aspergers child – heavy blankets give them a feeling of greater calm and security. Works for all ages and degrees of the spectrum. Unfortunately, they are quite scratchy – hence the thick sheet. The cruelty to animals is also a problem. Although I submit that most wool farmers love their sheep and don’t mean to be cruel to them. However, there is a cross over with most animal farming – costs & safety of pain killers mean that some operations are cruel and painful.

Anyway – the Earth rotated a few times and doona’s were invented. They are often called quilts. Originally they were filled with feathers ( a whole different level of cruelty to animals I will link back to). Originally they were two sheets o& material – sewn together and stuffed with feathers. The feathers were evened out and the sheets were quilted so there were no lumpy sections in the Donna. A few more turns of the Earth and voila! We have ecologically sounder doonas stuffed with soft fluffy – non-animal derived doona’s. End of history lesson. Unless…. some one out there wants to fill in any gaps on the history of the humble doona?

Back from the Brink

Just a few pics below to show I am still alive.  Just barely and there is a long story behind that – I will share shortly.

After contracting Bird Fancier’s Lung, going on a gluten-free free, sugar-free vegan diet, doing lots of chiro & Physio I am finally getting the writing and living life bug back.  What a trip – stay tuned to read all about it.


Bird Fanciers Lung -Hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP)

Hi there,

It has been a few years since I worked on this site.

I was diagnosed with Bird Fanciers Lung in 2015 after almost dying at Flinders Medical Center.

It has been a long and arduous journey back from the brink of death. I would have died without modern medicine and antibiotics. Natural health and healing is not infallible but it was also integral to my health and healing. I would not be fit and active if I did not embrace every natural healing method I could find and afford.

Visiting rescued Rainbow Lorikeets

I am safe with Swiz because she bathes daily. We also use filters inside and encourage her to play outside. She is free flight but rarely leaves our yard.

Native to Australia, Rainbow Lorikeets are nectar eating birds. They have a long bristly tongue that they insert into the native flowers to collect the pollen.  In Spring the wild lorikeets can be seen with beaks covered in yellow pollen.  In tropical areas they are also often found drunk, from eating fermented fruit.

About My Blog

Hello Everybody,

I have has so many questions about my website and comments on the quality of it.  I would like to answer these questions in bulk because otherwise I would be putting similiar answers on many posts.

1.   I am using a simple WordPress program.

2.   I use the “Reddle” theme.

3.  I think it cost me about $40.00 to get a .com address rather than a @wordpress.com account and it is a yearly cost.

4.  The set up is extremely easy to use and I can write my articles in Word and then copy and paste them onto my post.

5.   There is a lot of online help with WordPress from volunteers as well as from staff.

6.  I write my own articles from scratch.  I research a topic that interests me and if I find some good information  I  to share it.

Thank you everyone for your interest and comments.  If I can run a website I think most people can.  It is easy and fun and many people earn good money by selling and affiliations.  I have not started to earn money on it yet but I have started to earn some appreciation and respect.  To me that is equally important.  If the information I share can help somebody else I have already achieved what I set out to do.

To say that I never lie
Would be a lie
But to say that I always speak the truth
Is my Truth

My life was clouded with ‘shoulds’
And I was not Happy
Now I fill my life with ‘coulds’
and Opportunities abound.

Measure your Success by your own
Inner Happiness and Harmony.

If you wait for someone to say
I Love You before you do
Those three Precious words may never be spoken.

All of our hopes and dreams are carried inside us
Yet most of us look for fulfillment externally
The spirit is inside us all

I spent my whole life searching for ‘True Love’
Only to find it inside myself.

I only accept what is good and pure
Anything else-
I fill with Love and Light until it becomes pure.

If I could make you love me
I would not
Because love can only BE
When it is freely given.

You are a beautiful person.

Be kind to yourself
Be thankful
And you will be happy

How great our lives would be
If only we stopped and realized
How great our lives already are.

Travellers need to take the time
To rest and regain Strength
Appraise their progress and
Re-align their direction.

A beautiful flower needs Nurture and Care
How more so do our Family and Loved Ones
Love is like a flower – it needs nurturing to survive.

With guilt and anger I dwelt on my yesterdays
I filled my tomorrows with dread.
I wasted today on my yesterdays and tomorrows.

Fill each day with Acceptance and Love
And each day will be Fulfilling.

If you are too scared to reach for the clouds
How can you possibly hope to seek out the stars beyond?

I ran for days without stopping
Only considering what I was running to
I would have done better to stop and consider
What I was running from.

The energy wasted in one angry moment
Could be used to place a smile
On one thousand faces.

Be proud of your achievements every day
But also be thankful for the ability to achieve.

Every person you meet
Is a potential friend.

My most rewarding moments have been
When I held my hand out in Love and Friendship
And was Welcomed.

If the Heart and Soul are not healed
All else is Bandaid Therapy.

Chaos is formed in ourselves
Everytime we store a negative emotion
Let Go and Let Love.

Power Strips to Strip Away Pain

Be Pain Free Every Day

‘Do not undervalue the headache. While it is at its sharpest it seems a bad investment; but when relief begins, the unexpired remainder is worth $4 a minute’.
Mark Twain

If I can show you a way of relieving your pain, of having a good night’s sleep without tossing and turning, aching and hurting all night long, would you be interested?

As you know, until recently, when you wanted pain relief for strong pain, you had to go to the Doctor and get a prescription for a codeine or opiate based medication.

Or, you’d have spent a lot of time, effort and money doing the rounds of different natural therapies, getting a small amount of relief from each one.

Now, if you agree with me then what I’m about to tell you will completely change how you feel about pain relief.

What changes will you make in your life once you are pain free?

Whether you’re suffering from chronic pain, sharp pain, muscle stiffness or headaches FGXpress PowerStrips can help you get your life back and live pain free.


Natural Pain Relief

Power Strips strip away Pain

Once you’ve decided to trial the pain strips you will have to work out which pain to tackle first. Knees, back, neck – where do you feel the most pain or need the most flexibility?  

Now it’s so easy to enjoy your life again and participate in it fully. I am here to help you go through the process of trialing, ordering or joining up with FDXpress PowerStrips™.

I tried the pain strips myself because I was going to write an article/testimonial about them as part of a job. Of course, the distributor wanted me to trial them so that I knew what I was talking about and could be perfectly honest.

I suffer from Fibromyalgia and arthritis – so I was certainly a good candidate!

I was really surprised at how quickly they worked with me. I had chronic pain in my neck and the day I received the patches I was actually suffering from neck spasms. I had already taken every strong pain killer I was allowed and had another 2 hours before I could take the next lot. Guess what? I didn’t need to. Within an hour the pain had slipped away. I hadn’t even noticed it leaving my neck.

The patches can be used for two days and they were happy days indeed. I could even turn my from side to side.

The trial came with two pain strips and I waited until I really needed it before I used the second one. I used it for muscle spasms again – this time in my back. It was really quite painful – to the point where I could not stand up straight and I had to hang on to the furniture to move. I asked my hubby to place the patch on the sorest area of my back and I sat in the recliner to relax and watch some television. By the time the show was finished the pain had gone again. There was not even the residual pain that one gets from having back cramps.

In a very short time from now you too will feel the same relief from pain.

There may be some serious side effects from using the pain strips – these are what have been reported:

  • More Energy – Naturally doing more fun things.
  • Increased Circulation – feeling warmer and even glowing!
  • Increased Flexibility – moving joints and muscles easily.
  • Relief from Skin Conditions – sometimes eczema and psoriasis just fade away.
  • Clarity of Thought – Actually being able to make sense of instructions, recipes etc…
  • Better Memory – School dates, play dates, doctor’s appointments may just spring into your mind.

When you browse through my FGX site and look at the testimonials and the science behind the patches you will be as AMAZED as I am.

We have the ability to reach our full potential.

You will also notice on the site that there is an opportunity to join the business as part of a network marketing business. This is your choice and I will never pressure you. I joined the site so that I could buy the pain strips at a heavily discounted price.

After a while I had so many people asking me how they could get some that I decided to embrace the network marketing idea – so that my family and friends could also buy their patches at a wholesale price. You’ll find yourself getting excited about all the possibilities.

Here you’ll find the choice to buy pain strips for your own personal use and that of your family. You will also have the opportunity to buy at a heavily discounted price. If, like me, you have been unable to work at a ‘real’ job and struggling to have a good quality of life – you might choose to become a distributor yourself.

I invite you to join the thousands of people around the world who use FGXpress PowerStrips to recreate their lives.

Once you join this exclusive group, you’ll get:


FDXpress PowerStrips are so effective that they have been listed with the American FDA as a Class 1 Medical Device.

Adrenal Health and our Diet.

I am not a health nut but…  Since contracting Fibromyalgia I often research food, diets and fads to find out what may help and what probably won’t.  I do this with foods, therapies and even exercise.

Yesterday I learned quite a bit about the Adrenal glands – which sit on top of the kidneys. It seems they are very reactive to stress and help to stimulate the flight or fight response.  They also help with detoxing the kidneys.  Adrenal fatigue is not a proven disease.  It is more like a lay mans interpretation of what happens when the adrenal glands are overloaded.  It sure makes sense to me.

to support our adrenal glands we need to take control of our stress.  That really is easier said than done.  There are a variety of methods that can all help a bit.

Magnesium is very helpful for lowering stress levels.  Meditation works wonders, as does mild exercise.  Playing with a pet, enjoying a  reading a good book, lazing in the sun – all help!

Diet is especially important to support the Adrenal glands.  Vegetables that are high in iron, such as mushrooms, dark green vegetables and micro green.  Fresh sprouts are a great way to add a quick pick me up for the adrenal glands.  Nuts and seeds are also very supportive, as is spirulina, quinoa, flaxseeds and chia seeds.  Good fats from coconut oil and avocado are acceptable.   Really – the diet is a lot like vegetarian paleo.

Avoid all sugars and foods such as potato that have a low GI and quickly turn into sugar. Unfortunately (for me anyway) this also includes not drinking alcohol, no honey or sugar in our tea or coffee. Also to be avoided is almost all goods that have been processed such as flour, white rice, breads, pasta etc…

It seems a bit rough but highly sensible.  I have been sticking to a very healthy eating plan and reduced my honey intake significantly.  I justify to myself that all the herb teas I drink are healthy so it is a good balance.  I also sneakk the occasional  potato into my meal.

Today I had a potato sliced and fried in coconut oil. I topped this with tomato, spinach, mushrooms, capsicum and onion.  It was delicious, filling and very nutritious.  It also took me less than 15 minutes to make.

Healthy Lunch

Adrenal Health Food

Why not give your adrenal glands some recovery time?  Even a couple of weeks would help them rejuvenate and begin to work at maximum performance again.

Exercise – Health Benefits versus Pain

Exercise is, apparently, quite important for health and healing.  After reading a scientific study about how exercise allows nitric oxide to be activated in our blood stream, which in turns opens up rip the blood vessels for better circulation etc… I decided to take the chooks out the front for a spot of gardening.  

The chooks (hens) were so happy that I stayed out for quite a while.  My little Angel (the latest rescue galah) came out with me and walked around the lawn.  My exercise was gentle – a little weed pulling, following Angel (she can’t fly) so she didn’t climb a high tree.  I weeded a raised strawberry garden and picked some lavender for my neighbour.  

so the exercise was nothing major.  And yet – I came inside with my back burning up and hardly able to straighten up.  Today- I am not so sure about this exercise business. I think I will wait until I receive my plain patches before I try that out again!

Medication and Herbal Remedies can be used in Synergy

As I think everyone is aware – I have Fibromyalgia.  I was diagnosed earlier this year.  In some ways I was relieved about the diagnosis – because it meant that I was not a hypochondriac, nor was I going crazy (or crazier).

I was also shocked that a healthy vegetarian who ate good wholesome food and lots of raw veggies should get this disease.

I have done my best to find alternative and natural therapies to help me fight this disease.  Unfortunately it is an uphill battle and I do resort to prescription medicine daily.  I supplement with turmeric, kombucha, ginger and herb teas.  I will be continuing to explore natural ways to keep the Fibromyalgia at bay.  I will also share my journey with you and I look forward to some interesting feedback.

I have been been rather remiss in keeping up with MMS and DMSO but back onto it next week.  I also tried some pain patches called Powerstrips.  They worked so well that I will be selling them on this website.

  • There may sometimes be illnesses that we cannot fight or contend with naturally.  That does not mean we have failed.  Holistic medicine is really a marriage of the old and the new.  Science and anecdotal medicines and treatments can work together in synergy.  This is how we get the best chance possible to heal and regenerate.  We cannot do this if we are in so much pain that we can’t perform simple tasks, get a good night’s sleep and be responsible for our lives.


    This book could save your life.

    For those of you who do not know – MMS was the nutrient that I used to eradicate my calcified brain tumour.  It is used for so many other illnesses and has a great history of healing people from Malaria – with the help of The Red Cross.   If you or a loved one has a serious illness I strongly suggest buying these books by Jim Humble.   He has helped heal thousands of people.

    I will also be selling MMS and DMSO Wholesale in the very near future so keep coming back!
