Time is an herb that cures all Diseases.


Hello followers,

Welcome back, Dan and I have been sharing recipes for several weeks from the book of food and remedies that heal; alchemy of herbs.

This morning before coffee time I was wondering what I should start writing about and it hit me; why not talk about herbs. Growing up in Florida, I would pluck weeds that would grow around my flowers; not knowing that they were not weeds but some type of healing power. HERBS goes all the way back from the Bible - verse of; Genesis 1:29.

Then God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you.

Most people think of herbs as a garnish or as a flavor booster for foods. For instance, fresh basil can lift the taste of a simple Margherita pizza and rosemary can become the star of a chicken casserole. But herbs are not just taste-enhancers. They are superfoods that help digest the dish they are added to, aid the heart to function in a much better way, and improve overall health.

They are nature’s medicines for a variety of health conditions.

I bet you didn’t know, that herbs can improve anti-inflammatory, anxiety, depression, constipation, insomnia, sore throat and used as vitamins. So next time you see a weed, and before you pluck that weed from the garden, give it another good look.

A Weed Is Just a Weed, Or Is It – Weeds That Are Herbs

This is something to think about!! I did and realize, oh no; I used to kill these weeds. Weeds are adapted to conditions in the area where they grow. Many weeds appear to spring up wherever the soil is cultivated. Some are simply the result of the conditions of your landscape. While most people consider a weed to be nothing more than a nuisance, some of the most common garden weeds are actually beneficial herbs.

There are a number of weeds used as beneficial herbs. Some of the most common ones include the following; Goldenrod, Dandelion, Plantain, Wild Garlic, Wild Strawberry, Chickweed, Feverfew, Yarrow, Mullein. Not only do some of the most common lawn and garden weeds exhibit edible or medicinal properties, but many of them produce lovely flowers as well. So, before you pluck that weed from the garden, give it another good look. You may be surprised to learn that your so-called weed requires a space in the herb garden instead.


Be careful of the KARMA of judgement. When you say, “How could anyone” or “I can’t understand why someone would,” you are literally asking the universe to give you that experience. KARMA isn’t about punishment or reward, it’s about understanding. When you judge someone, you will soon find yourself in a similar position as theirs. You will then see why, the seemingly bad choices they made, and you may even make the same ones. If not, at least you’ll know why they did.

Every single day holds opportunities for growth, if you’re seeing something negative persist in your life, envision a goal of what you’d ideally want that picture to look like instead. Keep that picture fresh in your mind daily and make choices in its directions. If something or someone doesn’t fit into that picture, put your attention on someone or something that does.

Tomorrow, I will start blogging on the 12 laws of KARMA.

As I continue to be re-reading my book that I wrote four years ago; it’s a personal journey of my everyday experience with treatments that I received in Mexico. In relations to the current series of QUOTES ABOUT LIVING, 3-11-11; THE START OF MY ORGANIC GARDEN and I BELIEVE IN MIRACLES.


Hello, I am at home doing great. Still on the program and healing myself. One of the items helping me to recover is planting a garden. I have started an organic garden. I purchased some organic soil and organic seeds last week. I placed them in the freezer for a couple of days, so they are ready to be planted.

My space is limited for planting, for I live in a condo, but I was determined. My mind was made up a few weeks ago that I decided to get planters and start a small garden in my porch. Can’t wait – pea stocks, broccoli, tomatoes, lettuce, basil, red peppers, cucumbers and summer squash.

Wish me luck!


I believe in miracles and pray that I am being answered.

For days and nights of hoping my heart is beating with laughter.

I can fill my journey with imagination of the bright rainbow shades.

For orange when combined with red will create the happiness of yellow.

I believe in miracles and pray that I am being answered.

For days and night of hoping my heart is beating with laughter.

You can achieve the beauty of the cross walk of life.

Just hold out your hand and grasp mine, we can move mountains.

I believe in miracles and pray that I am being answered.

For days and nights of hoping my heart is beating with laughter.

Dan and I for several years have shared our experiences with enjoying life while managing cancer. By keeping healthy, our routine daily has been walking (exercise), meditation (for stress), Qigong (exercise and for stress). So, by now you know this is always in our routine for healing and keeping our body cells happy.


There are amazingly wonderful people in all walks of life; some familiar to us and others not. Stretch yourself and really get to know people. People are in many ways one of our greatest treasures. — #amazing #wonderful #people #walks #life #stretch #yourself #know #people #greatest #treasures #motivational #inspirational

Thinking back, Dan and I were taught everybody is unique an should be treated individually.

Through blood work and scans, I was given a plan of treatments. Per Dr. Perez and Dr. Garcia, that was the start; the rest was up to me. For you see, keeping healthy is a lifestyle and that would be up to me. I remember this one moment, a conversation with Dr. Perez; I asked him if I would be around in five years. He, replied it was up to me and how I live my life. Through their love and passion, I’m sharing through this blog our process of keeping healthy – its like a journal of our personal journey keeping healthy. Leading to why I ask you, did you do your walking?

I know some will say they do not have enough time with work, kids and household chores!!!

Dan and I have put together videos from WALK AT HOME together on our website, that you can follow in home; when you have short periods of time and unable to go out. They are from 15 mins up to 30 mins depending on the miles. This is one of the first steps to making your cells happy!!

Also, meditation videos, help to lower stress and is also one of the first steps to making your cells happy; click on . Again, they are no more than 10 to 20 mins and they are guided meditations.

We are still working on Qigong video’s to be posted on the website for easy access, until now you can go to the blog and on the right-hand side are hash # tag words, just click on the word #walk #Qigong #meditation. The post will pop up and then you can begin. Have fun with it!

Yesterday, what a refreshing walk along the river. Found these beauties.


Instead of documenting your day digitally, go old school. Forget, the Instagram stories, tweets and Facebook posts and instead sketch a silly picture of what you’ve been doing, write a dairy entry or send a letter or postcard to someone who would usually read your posts.

The more social media we have, the more we think we’re connecting, yet we are really disconnecting from each other. By JR

This is the time to get ready for food and remedies that heal; alchemy of herbs. Are you ready for another recipe using MUSTARD?


Any winter squash will work, although acorn squash may be a little hard to peel. However, I got a secret. I place butternut and acorn squash in a pot on the stove. I let it cook until it softens and let cool before I chop or cut it open.


2-pounds winter squash

2 tablespoons olive oil

½ teaspoon whole cumin seeds

1 teaspoon brown mustard seeds

1 medium onion, minced

1 ½ teaspoons salt

1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 cans coconut milk (I use oatmeal milk)

2 tablespoons lemon juice


1. Remove the peel, stems and seeds of the winter squash.

2. Then roughly chop it into medium size pieces.

3. Pour the oil into a large saucepan on medium heat.

4. Then add the cumin and mustard seeds.

5. When the seeds begin to sizzle, add the onion and salt and fry for 3 to 5 minutes.

6. As you stir add the ginger and garlic and fry for another couple of minutes, until aromatic.

7. Add the squash and the coconut milk (oatmeal milk) and turn up the heat a bit.

8. Wait until the mixture reaches a slight boil.

9. Then reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 30 minutes or until squash is soft.

10. Then pour the soup into a food processor. You may need to do it in two batches, so it doesn’t overflow.

11. Process on low for about 2 minutes or until smooth.

12. Stir in the lemon juice.

13. Serve warm and enjoy.

Until Thursday, I’m ending with a verse from Genesis 9:3; Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything. So, before you pluck that weed from the garden, give it another good look. You may be surprised to learn that your so-called weed requires a space in the herb garden instead.
