Anything from violence, ecological destruction, abuse or what ever gives you “Weltschmerz”, can be changed, has been changed and more can be done. I love this word because it describes the feeling of pain from things that we are not directly the cause of. This fantastic German word means world-pain. A pain we get through we perceive as wrong and bad in the world. Let the frustration come, use it. Let it be the driving force to do good. If you do you will sparkle, feel alive, it gives you life force (Prana). Pick up the pieces of hope in the scenario of destruction. There is always hope. In the worst of scenarios, there is humanity, there is nature, there is beauty. Choose to see that to encourage you and others. Start there and make it grow. In the worst of ecological catastrophes there is a sprout of life pushing through the asphalt. OO7, #7; Action is the first solution.
At our Olive Retreat we talk about the Ashtangas, the seven parts of Yoga. The first part is Yama; to find what is important for you in life. Then comes Niyama; to follow these values of yours. Why wait? Wait for what? Life is now! Walk your chosen direction and you will reach goals you couldn’t even imagine. I so agree with Anne Frank, I also think we are good at heart. We are not born evil, we learn to hate and be evil during life. There is always a good in all of us, that’s where we can start. That’s where our communication can touch. It’s also the only healthy way to be. If she could choose to see the good in all of us, anyone can. She was one of my first Gurus. Her book made a huge impact on me as a kid. If you haven’t read it, read it! I will, again.

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 💚🌿💜
