Cambridge Vegan Cafe

karen-lee-12-2016 Cambridge Vegan Cafe, Stem & Glory, near Mitcham’s Corner, a perfect meeting place to meet new Naturopathy Healing Diets & Self Healing student, Karen Lee.

Karen hails from St. Neots, near Cambridge, where she runs her aesthetician practice. See previous post.

After talking during her enrolment process, I stopped off in Cambridge as I returned from a glorious sunny countryside visit to dear friends near Aylsham, in Norfolk. And there is no better place than a Vegan Cafe and we were not disappointed.

Stem & Glory is beautifully welcoming in the upstairs entry to the Cambridge Yoga Studio.

On offer were warm dishes and salads, and to my delight, warm broccoli were lightly steamed & gently marinated for delicious flavour layering, salads were finely chopped and the warmth of the baked parsnips an exquisite addition.

As Karen is a conscious vegan and I love using herbs and spices and marinations, we were saying mmmm very often during our conversation. The host gifted us with a spiced mulled (thankfully not too sweet) juice, and our table and the respectful atmosphere enhanced our time together. A most excellent experience and one I hope to repeat.

Cambridge Vegan Cafe

After lunch, enjoying a sunny warm winter’s day, we walked across the Cam, over Jesus Green into Cambridge, my home for 11 years in the late 1970’s and 80’s, a place I dearly love even though it is transforming into tech, science, education wonderland. Glad it is the new base for the School of Natural Medicine. My favourite market was buzzing and the streets full of eclectic Cambridge life and tourists. And so I returned to the train station and Karen to St. Neots and the great goal of an April Immersion glows like a light in the future.

As Karen’s Self Healing was progressing well, as were her studies, we discussed her attendance at the upcoming Torremolinos, Spain Naturopathy Immersion, and a few days later, she enrolled to join advanced students in the 7 day training.

India Natural Physician Online Student

India Natural Physician Online Student India Natural Physician Online Student, Katarina Jalali, from Mumbai, flew to Delhi in December to enjoy a visit with her mentor, Farida Sharan, Naturopath.

Katarina picked me up where I was staying at the lovely guesthouse, Ahuja Residency in Golf Links, although her driver had a bit of a time finding the entrance to that exclusive hidden garden enclave in the Delhi embassy district near Lodhi Gardens.

First stop was the famous Khan Market, one of the highest rents in the world, and celebrated for quirky boutiques and every thing you might ever want to find, like bookstores, hardware stores, household necessities, sunglasses, stationary, banks, cafes, beauty parlors and so much more.

India Natural Physician Online StudentI visited the new boutique, Ruwaa, where their fashions are “…dedicated to every woman for her strength, love, courage and dignity.” and couldn’t resist two lovely light silk dresses, the draped pants to accompany them as well as two scarves, one silver light grey and the other, teal. It is rare for me to purchase Indian style clothes, but these fashions had the extra style in the spring line to give shape and flow.

India Natural Physician Online StudentNext was a visit to Cafe Turtle where we enjoyed Pomegranate mixed with Pineapple juice and I resisted my usual treat of vegan blueberry cheesecake, as, after browsing the bookstore and purchasing The Pearl That Broke the Shell and Mukakami – Absolutely On Music – Ozawa, we were heading next to the The Claridges Hotel garden for lunch. After long talks, a Greek salad a la India style, pineapple juice for me and orange juice for Katarina, she headed for the airport and I returned to Ahuja for a quiet evening before flying to England the next day.

Katarina raises her 4 year old daughter and cares for her husband with organic natural vegan foods, yoga, and a healthy lifestyle approach to living. Her husband is a medical doctor, an oncologist, one who learns the latest technologies at conferences around the world, and he already has welcomed Katarina to patient counselling sessions.

“Dear Farida, It was so lovely to meet you in person and spend this nice and sunny afternoon in Delhi with you. Thank you for taking the time!  You are truly an inspiration for me and I am very proud to be your student. With Love and Gratitude, Katarina”

Sheba Graduates Reflexology

Sheba graduates Reflexology with compassionate effective case studies and shares:

“I want to share my love for you and the School of Natural Medicine teachings that changed my life!

My life and the people I touch will forever be changed because of you, Farida, and the School of Natural Medicine trainings. I feel so much life energy when I help others and see their faces light up because they learned something new.

Thank you, Farida, for an opportunity of a lifetime to help me discover who I really am. Your teachings will forever be remembered and cherished!”

As an advanced Reflexology & Natural Medicine student, Sheba began her practice by sharing Reflexology and Essential Oils sessions at a Senior Health Expo given in Rockford, Illinois, by LifeScape. She gave free 5 to 10 minute Reflexology sessions that began waves of excitement for many who never even knew Reflexology existed!

Sheba Graduates ReflexologySheba says, “I was busy from 9 am to 3pm with lines of of 4 or 5 waiting 20 to 30 minutes. I did not take a break or care to because I saw how eager the people were to learn about it. Chuck Jefferson, a previous Illinois State House Representative stopped by my table twice. I asked him when would he like a session and he complimented, “You’re always too busy.”

One of my teachers Sue Michaelsen, who taught Tai Chi, Chi Hung Jin Shin Do and massage for 30 years, after receiving a private session from me, asked me to share her appreciation, “Farida is an amazing teacher!”

Sheba Graduates ReflexologyI used to live in fear because people thought what I was studying was crazy because no one knows what Reflexology where I live near Chicago. Now I understand it is part of my calling to educate those who want to know, and help change the world by starting with my community. Each year I see a difference. The only challenge I had in the past was allowing others opinions or negative thoughts to enter my spirit, but not any more.

My daughter says that I am the best doctor in the world. She watches everything & wants to help all the time. She loves the teas I make for her and notices the healthy changes for our family. She loves being the only vegetarian at her school!”

Love always,” Sheba Gardner graduates Reflexology with compassionate effective case histories from her clients.

Sheba attended classes in Reflexology, Essential Oils, Flower Essences, Iridology and Healing Diets, and now has a significant career position for her healing talents, and plans to continue to further graduations now that her daughter is older.

Reflexology is a divine practice of holy feet, sole to soul, that enhances life, energy, positivity and healing. It is a joy to teach and share Reflexology.

Skin Infection Healed Naturally

Skin Infection Healed NaturallySkin Infection Healed Naturally with and Eggplant Poultice by Douglas Thompson in South America after 2 years of failed attempts using all means possible.

“The extract curaderm from Eggplant is featured in a proven skin remedy, so logic led to me to give the plant a try. It took patience but the results are clear and indisputable after years of trying everything and knowing the answer was there to be discovered.

Photo: Chop and blend Eggplant with water to make paste. Applying once or twice daily slowly healed a resistant and aggravating skin condition related to tropical parasites that showed up in 2014.

Skin Infection Healed NaturallyPhoto: July, 2015  Forearm with Coconut Oil. Inflammation, burning sensation when anything was applied, scabbing then scabs fall off with area beneath with a burning sensation, cycle repeats.

Skin Infection Healed NaturallyPhoto: October 2016 after two weeks with Eggplant paste shows inflammation reduced and the area below scabs showing reduced inflammation and size.

Note: I never did a full serious cleanse with CLO2 which has proven to help with parasites and serious skin issues; Swimming in the ocean consistently reduced symptoms; Garden of Life Vitamin Code / MyKind Organics were primary vitamins.

Skin Infection Healed NaturallyPhoto: November 12, 2016 after 2 months using Eggplant topically daily.

General Suggestions from Doug: Keep intestines cleaned and moving is a priority for overall health plus quality of nutrition reaching cells, hydration, nerve supply, combined with exercise to keep lymph moving, the primary lessons of early influences in 1979 in natural healing from Dr. Terry Willard and Dr. Bernard Jensen.

Topical Remedies & Internal Remedies Taken Except Kerosene: Propolis, Raw Honey, Oil of Oregano, Tea Tree oil, DMSO, Garlic oil, coconut oil, olive oil, Flax oil, alcohol, Aloe Vera commercial, Aloe Vera home grown, Turpentine, gum spirits, Kerosene, lemon, baking soda, apple cider vinegar, Ginger, Cinnamon, Chlorella, Moringa, Grapefruit concentrate, ASEA including gel, alkagenesis, silica based super alkalising liquid, Carbo Vegetalis (a black powder internally and externally similar to Diatom Earth), Diatomaceous Earth, many herbs and tinctures including Horsetail, Yarrow, Thyme, parasite combos with Wormwood &, Garlic, Comfrey, Licorice, Turmeric, Cayenne, Coconut oil, Black Pepper, CLO2 50% water of 2% solution, CLO2 2% direct. 

True health comes from our mindsets as well, never to be underestimated in the power to heal anything!

Good luck and live a grateful day,” Thank you Douglas Thompson, a long time Iridology colleague and profound Self Healer.


Acne Skin Care

Acne Skin CareAcne Skin Care Naturally Online with Jessica Gremley, Colorado Aesthetician and a 2015 Healing Diets Graduate who creatively evolved an Online Acne Skin Care program and new product line, Clove Hill.

Jessica shares: “Hi Farida, I have my first Skincare Product under my brand name, Clove Hill, launching in the next few weeks as well. Clove Hill will include skincare, SPF and herbs to start with but will expand into haircare and possible make-up down the road.

All the products under the Clove Hill name are Acne Safe Products and part of the 16-week Acne Clear virtual healing program I offer to clear acne. 

Acne Skin CareI just received proofs of the branding/packaging for the acne Herbal Formulas and will be bottling them with Heidi (School of Natural Medicine International Graduate & Herbal Medicine Teacher past 16 years) in the next few weeks. Very exciting!

My husband Michael is now working with me as we envision becoming a nationally recognized brand in the next few years. We recently took on more office space and are hiring coaches in our call center to work with clients virtually.  

Michael will focus on marketing as we are excited for more people to find our website so we can help as many as possible to get clear.

I continue to use what you have taught me every day of life and share that with others:) Big Hugs from  Jessica Gremley, Healing Diets graduate and advanced Naturopathy student who evolved from an aesthetician into a creative natural products brand. Jessi experiencing the Air Element in the Chakras, Elements & Emotions Naturopathy embodiment healing process training in the School of Natural Medicine evolutionary education teachings.

Acne Skin CareAcne and skin conditions always clear during Self Healing, some sooner than others. Refer to recent post on Ana for good example. Progress happens in waves during and after studies, opportunities appear, ideas emerge, students find their own creative path.

Previous note of appreciation before the idea of online and produce line appeared:

“Hi Farida, I feel the excitement and growth of the school very strongly:) I moved into my new office and it is really great. It feels right to be in a professional medical environment. I am working with a wellness physician who was just featured on Morgan Sperlock’s new show on CNN “How to Live Forever.” Lots of cutting edge technology happening at my new clinic with stem cell storage, chelation therapy, PRP therapy and a whole room of vitamin IV injections!” With Love, Jessi

Jamaica Pescado Juice Bar

Jamaica Pescado Juice BarJamaica Pescado Juice Bar hosts the Garden of Eden Health Club meetings (see us on facebook) where the sea breeze and the sound of the waves brings therapy. We are growing slowly to ensure solid growth, says Eloretta Wedderburn of Independence City, Jamaica

I am imparting knowledge to others on an ongoing basis with every opportunity. I desire to spend the rest of my working years making a difference in the lives of the ones I love and care for so much as well as being healthy in my personal life.

Jamaica Pescado Juice BarEloretta Wedderburn, enrolled in the Healing Diets Online Course and has been completing assignments, sharing the good news in her Church, creating a Garden of Eden Health Club & opening the Pescado Restaurant Fruit & Juice Bar.

The offer seafood as a transitional food to begin the process of educating and assisting their customers toward greater health and intelligence.

“Hello my beloved Teacher. Wow, you know the way to live! I love your life & when I “grow up” I want to live like you! Thank you so very much for your kind words and patience with me. I have been feeling so good physically & mentally since I have been doing the Online Healing Diets Course with your guidance and being nourished in a new world of information. Thanks so much for facilitating my learning process so very well.

Along with the cleanses and detox and changes in our diet, I would like to do some experiments with blending and juicing Purslane and Spanish Needle plants because in Jamaica they are abundance and we are not yet using them.

My husband was led to continue on a 40 days fast, which he refers to as a Prophet’s fast. We have seen great miracles and acts of God manifest in our lives and the lives of persons in our Church with simply imbibing water, coconut water & chewing on sugar cane once in a while. After 31 days, his blood pressure normalised (previous to he was on 2 medications, 1 to lower the blood pressure & 1 to relax the heart. He now has a normal blood pressure and is going to work daily. 

I accomplished 7 days of water fasting with God’s help, & benefitted much with improvements in self discipline. I still need further modifications to diet & lifestyle to improve my body nurture. I now recognize the mind is powerful & all fears & concerns are futile. I lost 17 pounds. A great achievement! I celebrated with a pedicure, changed my hairstyle & had my car washed & vacuumed. I felt brand new! (Note: Water fasting is not recommended by SNM teachings or Self Healing, but a choice of adventurous and well prepared students in full connection and with support) Congratulations to the Wedderburns with great honour for their achievements.

With a passion in Health & Wellness over twenty years, I presented at Health Fairs & avoided synthetic medications as I believe prevention is better than cure. A graduate of the University of Technology with a Diploma in Institutional &Catering Management, a trained Guidance Counsellor, & an Educator in HIV /AID Counseling certified by City & Guild in Teaching, Training & Assessment, I love to teach & train youths & adults.” Eloretta Wedderburn, Healing Diets Onine Study student, Jamaica

Purification Regeneration

Purification RegenerationPurification Regeneration advances together to provide essential balanced support for the inner ecology to build health & wellness.

“I originally started learning Natural Medicine from my Dad as he would put me on fasts whenever I was unwell.

Later in life when I was living in Australia, my health deteriorated and seeing that allopathic medicine was failing me, I looked for alternatives first with Australian Naturopathic Doctors who would just give me mountains of vitamins, then with Ayurveda in India.

When I read books by Arnold Ehret, Dr. Bernard Jensen, Dr. Raymond Christopher, and Dr Robert Morse and followed their advice, my health recovered amazingly. I have become fascinated and have kept studying, researching and reading, and want to advance further.

I also went to the USA for 2 courses with Dr Robert Morse on regenerative detoxification.

I am very eager to continue learning and my next focus is Herbology, so I am interested to enrol in your Master Herbalist Online Course with Self Healing and mentoring.”

Juan Baneres Yubero, Malaga, Spain, Herbal Medicine & Self Healing student

Education Advances Careers

Education advances careersEducation advances careers to new levels of personal evolution & professional skills with Healing Diets Nutrition Online Study enhanced by Self Healing.

Karen, an aesthetician from St. Neots, Cambridgeshire, shares the longing to help her women clients that led to her choice to study the Healing Diets Online Course enhanced by the Self Healing Module.

“I work with women every day, and when I talk with them, I feel I want to help them more.

I originally studied exercise and health studies years ago before my path then led me to massage and beauty. I now run a lovely specialised salon in St Neots.

My passion have always been food and health, especially since my mum was diagnosed 7 years ago with brain cancer. She was given six months and it was then I witnessed the power of nutrition and the mind that gave her an extra 3 years.

There is not a day goes by where I don’t read or absorb some article on nutrition. My eyes light up when I am on this topic.

I love the content of the Healing Diets Nutrition Online Course.

There are many courses out there but my heart kept pulling me back to your Purehealth website.”

Karen Lee, Aesthetician, St. Neots, Cambridgeshire, UK.

Enrolment is a process that takes time because it is important for me as a teacher to know that a student makes a choice to enter into the study with full knowing that is the right and true step for their next level of emergence. Karen took her time to think and feel and explore and talk with me and her photo shows that beautiful quality of knowing so important to life decisions. I believe choice is a most important life skill and it is essential to my connections with inquirers that full time and spare are devoted to this process so that when a student steps through to commitment, it is with a fullness of knowing they are on the right path.

Therapeutic Essential Oils

Therapeutic Essential Oils

Sacred Touch with Connection, Synchronicity and Compassion

Therapeutic Essential Oils Anointing with Reflexology & Raindrop, Auricular & Vagus Nerve Therapies allowed me to be fully present with a deeper understanding in the power of sacred touch with connection, synchronicity and compassion.

Humble Heart and an Empty Mind

When approaching a person with a humble heart and an empty mind, I am able to feel and experience healing energy with the magic of unity and communion.

I was hesitant to touch because of overthinking and fearing hurting someone. Without hesitation I can now relax and enjoy the natural touch so necessary to connection.

Therapeutic Essential OilsWith this shift, I am now able to see within myself and comprehend the nature of every moment of Therapeutic Essential Oils Anointing touch as I slow down and praise the moment with full attention.

Being fully present allows me to fear no more as I know I love and honour someone simply by the warmth of my hands on their feet.

By recognising the light within healing touch, my energy is more clear with increased peace of mind and heart. I feel more connected, whole and positive.

Therapeutic Essential Oils

Anointing grounds and restores our internal healing powers whether in Raindrop, Auricular or Vagus Therapy Essential Oils bodywork or in Master Touch Reflexology.”
