“If I only would have stayed vegan…”
My daughter’s voice was weak, blaming herself for not staying to plant-based food while traveling. She had a tortilla española, (Spanish omelette) just before catching a bus. Her gut feeling was to not eat it, but as so often in our society her mind shut her gut down, telling her that they didn’t have time to look for other options. Now she called me from the youth hostel in Cordoba, after barely making it to her unfamiliar bed in the shared room, asking me for advice. She warned the taxi driver that she didn’t feel so good and that she had thrown up. He handed her a paper bag and with his soft Andalusian accent he told her not to worry. He saw that she needed to lay down. He cared more about her than his car.
My best advice when you travel is to stay away from animal sourced food, any, and all: eggs, meat, chicken, fish, dairy. I’m often told it’s so hard to find options, here are some ideas. Of course it is, if you think in the box. Get out of it, remember our O8 #7 – imagination is the first solution. There are two ways that will definitely save you time away from the loo, and save money too:
- Do picknicks: in parks, at stations, in your room, any corner of silence is good, but sit down to digest well.
- Don’t even look at the menu at the restaurant, but ask them what they can do for you. Tell them that you can’t eat meat of any source or you’ll die! Oh, and don’t forget to ask them for the price.
- Eat as much spices of all kinds that you can. Brew tea on them and put them in your water bottle. Chew them: clove, ginger, ginger, and other antiseptic spices. It will help you kill off intruders.

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 💚🌿💜
