We saw a lot of churches the last day in Prague. The heavy Gothic style with all it’s allegories showed Christianity’s worst sin; to doubt God. Later that evening I got a mail that made me doubt, nothing but doubt, I saw no solution. I felt terrible, the doubt really got me. I flew home and the first thing my daughter talks about is the ‘doubt-thing’ in Christianity!
After seeing a movie about a templar she understood how important it is to never give up to doubt. It hit me how utterly right she is, and that I never really saw the beauty in this Christian teaching (seeing God as father). To only doubt – others, oneself and the universe, is nothing we should teach our kids, but we do; careful there…watch out with… It’s depressing! No energy. I wasn’t brought up in any religion, but the ‘new one’, science, based on questioning. Questioning without hope and trust is doubt, it can be exhausting. We need to question to understand, but not doubt.
To trust, hope and have faith is healthy and loving. It’s Prana, life vitality, energy. A person that trusts is positive, and nice to be around. Doubt is to be negative, it’s mass. Doubt stops creativity, the energy that creates solutions. The non-mass solution is trust, belief, hope and faith. Funny enough Buddhism teaches doubt, but really it’s saying not to believe in the illusion of matter, in what we see, so isn’t it the same thing?
Long ago I decided to go into new relationships and situations without doubt, if for nothing else because it creates ‘happy hormones’. Doubt creates stress hormones. It makes us judgmental, skeptical, sad and over sensitive. And when there is uncertainty I trust the future me will solve the problem (if it appears). Imagine a world where we first trust everyone we meet. So why did I fall into doubt again? I think it’s time to detox, but more on that tomorrow.

Naturopaths who deeply believe Natural Immunity is still the best, and therefore we work in defense of it.
Since 20+ years we have successfully been consultants in the natural health sector to support individuals and we are in particular working with entrepreneurs and professionals. Our mission is to defend natural health, the only one that really works so far. We mainly but not entirely use Eastern philosophy such as Ayurveda, TCM, Yoga, Thai chi, Falun Gong, and only honest modern science.
Everyone can heal naturally, it's what bodies and (free) minds want. Our O• Method is based on physics, chemistry and biology with emphasis on the first one as the rest often follow naturally. We divide our work in three parts: Body-Mind-Soul. To allow them all to detox and let go we work with energy (Prana, Xi, Vitality, Spirit, Pneuma or whatever you call the life force, it's the same force mentioned in ancient texts) to heal on all levels, i.e. from chronic disease, toxicity, depression and traumas using our own method, reaching 96% success rate which is unheard of by others in our sector. Would you know of anyone with that result, let us know.
Considering that we invented and dumped >120.000 (petro)chemically derived substances since 1945, of which many are very toxic, getting healthy will most likely include a good old body detox sooner or later.
My love for Ayurveda started in 1993 with Deepak Chopra and after a few turns in life I quit my job as a Nordic Brand Manager and BI strategist at the largest Nordic telecom operator and re-schooled in natural medicine. Besides Dr. Chopra I have studied Dr. Lad, Dr. Siva (Pune, India) and other prominent teachers in their field, but the real difference comes with a practiced. I added nutrition, Orthomolecular Medicine with Dr. Nielsen (USA/Spain) and herbalism.
Today we teach those whom want to continue our work and we love to dig down in etymology and the original (mainly Avestan, Pali and Sanskrit) scripts to understand the words fully and I fall in love with the concepts over and over again for every sutra. This love affair that created a few books (Amazon), presentations, essayes and many events and consultations, is still giving us Yang-Yin balance and inspiration. I guess with that we are recognizing the value of Dao De Ching 💚🌿💜
