Welcome to Issue 32 of Healing Points. 

 I offer Healing Points™ to you as a gift and as a service.  I spend many hours each week reading current stories that relate to natural health care, and I provide them here for you as an educational public service.

I hope you find this valuable.  Remember, success or failure in life is often created by the small changes we make.  I specifically chose the information in Healing Points to help you make those small, life enhancing changes.

An Invitation

Starting on April 7, I will be providing group sound-healing experiences every Monday evening after the New Moon. These events will be held at The Elder Tree in Topanga Canyon. The time will  be from 7:30 till about 9:00pm.  All are invited to enjoy this profound experience of healing and consciousness.  Please RSVP if you would like more information or reservations.

My breath and my whole physical being became one with the vibrations of the music. I was transported beyond the small room into vast realms where my consciousness roamed unhindered. Dr. Grossman’s creative ability coupled with his sensitivity as a healer is a key to the deeply felt resonance with our body and Spirit.

Special Spring Message

Spring is rapidly approaching.  Spring is a time of renewal and cleansing, and there is no better time of the year than Spring to experience the wonderful benefits of systemic detoxification. Simply, there is nothing you can do that will benefit your health more than a good Spring Cleanse.  Our bodies are constantly bombarded by toxins from the environment, and from toxins created within our bodies as natural by-products of metabolism. Helping your body properly rid itself of these toxins can increase energy, reduce or eliminate muscular pain, eliminate constipation and other digestive disorders, result in profound fat loss, and many other benefits.  If you would like to have a detoxification consultation, give me a call at 310-293-9475.

Fruits and veggies grown organically show significantly higher levels of cancer-fighting antioxidants than conventionally grown foods, according to a new study of corn, strawberries and marionberries.

From the Healing Points Kitchen

Many people do not really know how to make whole grains taste good.  Here is a recipe for what has been affectionately called "Dr. Grossman's totally weird but oddly delicious breakfast cereal.  Before turning up your nose, give it a try.  Enjoyment guaranteed.

1/4 cup millet
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 cups water
1/2 onion
1 tbs. Tamari Soy Sauce
1 tbs. raw Tahini
1/2 cup (or more)  green vegetables like broccoli, kale, collard greens, or parsley

Put the millet, chopped onion, and Tamari in pot.  Bring to boil and cook at a simmer for 20 minutes.  Add the rest of the ingredients, bring back to a boil and simmer 10 more minutes.  Add more tamari to taste.  This is really, really good.

Social Action

Because Healing must occur on a planetary level as well as a personal level. I will highlight a different cause each issue here.  If it resonates with you, please take action.

From Deena Metzger, author, teacher, and healer.

Perhaps this is a vision. 

I have prayed to know what to do and how to be at this eleventh hour.  There is an outcry from everywhere in the world.  People everywhere are coming forth to say No to a war that could annihilate everything.  But we do not yet see the way to stop this war. 

Here is one way that we can walk for the sake of all living things.  A way with a heart and with great possibility.

I have asked how we have come to this?  How we have come to the place where one can imagine inflicting the equivalent of another Hiroshima?    How have we become so mad?  Read the rest here.
