Viral and Energetic Overload – Aboriginal Flower Essence and Essential Oil Viral Cleaning and Energising Spritzer

by Clare G Harvey


In these times of exposure not only to viral overload but also to the highly charged emotional atmosphere of fear and panic, which can be equally contagious, maintaining our energetic environment is essential. This is where mists and sprays which use the quantum frequency of flower essences and essential oils, which have been used effectively in various forms in many indigenous traditions for thousands of years, can be useful additions to one's daily life and routine as we can then navigate this complex world with ease!

There is something special about the intensely pungent aroma and the internal strength of the flowering plants found in Australia. Due to their ability to have endured and survived in the harshest of circumstances and climates, these specific flowers and plants found in Bush embody a vibrant energetic pattern and qualities of internal strength which is unique to Australia. One such clearing and protecting mist spritzer has been developed and designed to work on the energy body of the subtle anatomy, Clear and Protect Flower Essence of Australia Spray incorporates specific indigenous essential oils and flowers essences from the Australian outback.


Chakraman + Crowea + Lemon Myrtle

Clockwise from Left: Chakraman, Crowea, Lemon Myrtle


The Flower Essences of Australia

  • Fringed Violet: provides auric and energetic protection, and has traditionally been used to rebuild after damage as a result of shock and trauma, a protective shield for adverse electromagnetic frequencies;
  • Crowea: Worry essence, anxiety and stress felt in the stomach and muscular tissue. Supports calm, centred and feeling in balance;
  • Paw Paw: is beneficial in times of feeling overwhelmed and creates mental and emotional assimilation and integration, so that problems can be are solved with clarity;
  • Boab: Supports releasing inherited attitudes and states of mind allowing mental freedom by clearing negative emotions and thoughts, resetting a positive mindset;
  • Black Eyed Susan : Stress essence, engine over running, speedy, unable to switch off, supports mental calm, inner peace and pacing oneself;
  • Banksia Robur: Low energy levels, burnout after setbacks, renews energy;
  • Wild Potato Bush: Overloaded and weighed down, emotional toxicity, feeling physically burdened & heavy, and supports cleansing mentally, emotionally and physically;
  • White Spider Orchid: Overwhelmed by the sadness of life creating nervousness and anxiety. Provides protection for over sensitivity, and helps to create a wider more philosophical worldview;

The Australian Aboriginal Essential Oils

  • Lemon Myrtle is endemic to subtropical rainforests of central and south-eastern Queensland, Australia considered more powerful than Tea-Tree by the Originals of Australia. A sweet uplifting aroma with antibacterial properties, containing Citral is the main chemical constituent of the plant.used for sinus and bronchial infections, wounds and acne. Traditionally used as a tea for sore throats, colds, flu, and said to enhance the immune system and to be a powerful antioxidant and contains zinc, calcium, magnesium along with vitamins A and E;
  • Australian Sandalwood, its heartwood is found in Western Australia and considered liquid gold by the originals used it ceremonially to calm the mind and reduce stress, and like Leman Myrtle has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, antiseptic and astringent properties;
  • Bergamot, essential oil obtained from the fruit of the Bergamot tree, a citrus-like aroma with spicy undertones. Linalyl Acetate and Limonene making up over 60% of the constituents, these unique compounds offer many benefits, including antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, analgesic (pain-relieving), mood enhancing, with calmative properties;
  • Australian Blue Cyprus a naturally blue coloured unique essential oil with a smooth, woody aroma with delicate smoky honey undertones. The oils impart a feeling of relaxation when nervous or distressed, which stabilizes and grounds. Blue Cyprus is also traditionally valued for its anti-bacterial qualities;
  • Kunzea also known as White Tea Tree, native to New Zealand, the Maori people have been using different parts of this plant for centuries, and more recently found in Australia. A sweet and yet earthy fragrance, which is a terpene rich oil with chemical components of: alpha Pinene, Viridifloraol, 1,8 cineole, Limonene, p-Cymene, Calamenene, Gamma-Terpinene and a-Selinene and has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and decongestant qualities.

In synergist balanced these Spritzers are proving to be extremely valuable for meeting the challenges we have had to face not only in the last two-three years but are also invaluable and relevant at this present point in time.

Inflammaging and How to Prevent It

Cell Science Systems – a Florida based lab- has been busy creating new tests to measure inflammaging and then structuring personalized lifestyle and diet solutions.  It’s more important than ever to support immune health and ensure an appropriate response to danger signals as well as recovery after the danger is quelled.

 To protect against invading microorganisms and microbial structures expressing PAMPs (pathogen-associated molecular patterns), as well endogenous molecules, DAMPs (damage associated molecular patterns-, foods, oxidative stress, damaged DNA, and others) the innate immune system, is the first line of defense.   Components of the innate (non-specific) response include the skin, tears, saliva, bacterial flora, cytokines, and cells, including neutrophils, basophils, eosinophils, monocytes, and others. When the innate response is not successful at combating the invader, the adaptive (specific) immune system is called upon and lymphocytes are activated.


With an acute response of the immune system triggered by infection, inflammation occurs as a natural defense followed by a process of self-healing.   Chronic and systemic inflammation, however, triggered by constant physical, chemical, or metabolic stimuli, DAMPs released by damaged cells, and environmental insults, leads to damage of tissues and organs.  Excessive and prolonged production of inflammatory mediators plays a role in many chronic diseases; autoimmune disease, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, fibromyalgia, in addition to many others (probably including long COVID as well.)

Age Related Chronic Inflammation

Aging and associated chronic inflammation, referred to as “inflammaging,” contributes to significant risk of morbidity and mortality.

Inflammatory burden depletes immune resources, causes cell senescence, drives cardiovascular disease, autoimmunity, and other chronic issues - compromising immune health and reducing protection against foreign invaders. 

The new testing involves:

  1. Testing the responses of the JAK-STAT (Janus kinase Signal Transduction and Activators of Transcription) pathway, an important pathway in all immune cells, playing a major role in transferring cytokine signals from cell surface receptors to the nucleus, and activating genes to create the exact protein needed for the targeted immune response. This pathway tends to be reduced in aging individuals resulting in imbalanced immune responses, poor immune health, and the perpetuation of elevated inflammatory mediators.  
  2. Measurement of key cytokines and chemokines in the blood. These include:
  • CXCL-9
  • CXC-2
  • CXCL-2
  • OL-6
  • TNF-alpha
  • IL-1b
  • Elafin
  1. A very important marker and predictor of health, the NLR; or neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio
  2. Telomere length assessment.

Many of the consequences common in the elderly population, can be prevented by making lifestyle choices that support the immune system and immune senescence can be reversed.

Announcing: A Four-Day Certified Course from September 2022 the teaching of two extraordinary disciplines as indicated below:

The Alexander Barrie System of Pelvic Correction™ 

Correct Your Pelvis - Heal Your Back-pain

and: Taiwanese Yuan Shi Dian Medicine (YSD) Exponent: Wei Wu Beijing 

Aligned Wellness Academy (AWA)

It is to understand why this corrosive State of Health, back-pain and all other musculoskeletal aches and pains are experienced by almost everybody and also more importantly, how you may have control and be able to manage these debilitating Conditions thus returning your life back to you by aligning your pelvis and spine and much more.

The spine itself should sit on a base (pelvis) that is angularly horizontal. This enables it [the spine] to enjoy true verticality. In other words, the spine must be at right-angles to the balanced horizontal pelvis. The pelvis becomes dysfunctional for many varied reasons, and, among the many physiological disorders engendered by a pelvic dislocation, the most problematic, are, when a tilt of the pelvis to one side obtains, and so, it is now at an oblique angle - a pathological departure away from it's true horizontal plane. There are other kinds of pelvic dislocation but the kind referred to above happens to be the most commonplace. Pelvic displacement is also widespread amongst the populations of the World and especially so in The Western World Sector. Leg Length discrepancy is always a factor causing knee, ankle, shoulder pain and all other musculoskeletal skeletal dysfunctions.


New Logo Aligned Wellness Academy AWA


Operators:  Dr Alexander Barrie, London. & Senior Practitioner Wei Wu, Beijing.

We include of course, the spectacular Taiwanese Yuan Shi Dian (YSD) (Origin Point Medicine) to assist resolution of disorders of neck, shoulder, wrist, hip, knee, ankle, sciatica, and lumbago but also to bring healing to most other ailments that beset mankind, including, for example, very stubborn Conditions, as with Parkinson’s, Diabetes, and Dementia  - in this way, we may help reduce the stresses of daily life. To maintain physiological and psychological health, all bodily systems need to be in balance and this means to be interiorly warm to hot - we in the West particularly are too interiorly cold in temperature, giving rise to most illnesses.  This concept, strange to our ears is explained in this important Course.

Further Information

Our 4-Day Certified Course starts Saturday 24th September; 8th & 22nd October and 5th November From 9.30am to 5.30pm at Harrow University Campus. We will be teaching both disciplines outlined above which will be invaluable and priceless as  adjuncts to your existing therapies.

Homeopathy – Wonderful System of Medicine that has ‘Stood the Test of Time’

Homeopathy is a wonderful system of medicine that has ‘stood the test of time’.  There are an increasing number of people who are choosing this natural method to address acute ailments before needing to contact their GP.  Homeopathic remedies, being non-toxic and non-addictive, are safe for all age groups and, under supervision, can be taken during pregnancy.  Once the most appropriate homeopathic remedy is chosen most acute ailments reach a speedy resolution and the person is able to continue with their day-to-day activities.

For long-standing or chronic conditions, you will need to seek the advice and help of a qualified homeopath who will spend time taking a full case history and prescribe homeopathic remedies that are most suited to the symptoms that are being presented.  Homeopathic remedies can be taken alongside conventional medicine.   My mother was testament to how homeopathic remedies helped her recover from the hip replacement surgery she underwent.  My family have all benefitted from using homeopathic remedies for minor complaints and/or supporting longer term conditions. Plus, if you are an animal lover, there are vets that will prescribe homeopathy for your pet.

June Sayer + Homeopathy

I have been a homeopathic practitioner for 30 years and have worked with people of all ages who have presented with a wide range of conditions.  For some, homeopathy has been the turning point in their lives, not only have they seen an upturn in their health condition but it has made such an impression that they have gone on to study and ultimately qualify as a homeopathic practitioner.

For all homeopaths, as with conventional doctors, new remedies become available and we continue to undertake continual professional development so that we can offer the best to each of our clients.

My online course Homeopathy at Home is designed to teach you how to use homeopathic remedies for a range of ailments such as coughs, colds, headaches and sore throats etc.  The course covers a number of homeopathic remedies along with pointers to the remedies and information on how to differentiate between remedies that, at first glance, appear to be very similar, as well as how often the remedies should be administered.  Homeopathic remedies that can be purchased from local health stores are non-toxic, non-addictive and safe for all ages.  Conventional medicines may cause drowsiness and you may be advised not to operate machinery or drive.

If, after completing the Homeopathy at Home course you feel that you would like to develop your knowledge further, the Homeopathic Practitioner Diploma course offers you an in-depth apprenticeship style study course spread over three years.  This course further explores the philosophy of homeopathy, differentiating between acute and chronic cases and preparing case studies.  You will be required to put aside time for self-study and written assignments.  Once all the necessary criteria have been completed you will be entitled to register as a homeopathic practitioner and take steps to build your career as a homeopath.

I am also pleased to note that I am now a recognized practitioner of NutriClean, Gut Transformation and Peri-Menopause nutritional health Programmes.   With the aid of nutritional supplementation and homeopathy I enjoy working with people and seeing their health improve and the longer-term benefits of staying healthy.

Please do not hesitate to contact your GP in case of an emergency.

My practice is based in Burnham-on-Crouch in Essex but should distance or time constraints be an issue, I hold consultations via Zoom, Skype, Facetime, etc.

Wider Choice of Silica-Rich Detox Water now offers a wider choice of health- giving silica-rich bottled drinking waters, by introducing Sousas mineral water from Spain with a silica content of 51gm/L.

The newcomer is equally effective in removing toxic aluminium from the body in line with the scientific protocol defined by ‘Mr Aluminium’ Professor Christopher Exley.

In line with our pledge as a certified Not-for-Profit Social Enterprise, being sourced closer to home, Sousas mineral water comes in at £19.90 - £4 lower in cost for a box of 12x1.5L bottles of still mineral water. This is aimed at keeping silicawater affordable for families who have come to rely on it for better health and wellbeing.

Sousas silicawater is also available in glass bottles as well as BPA-free safe PET recyclable plastic bottles. will continue to offer our original ACILIS by Spritzer silica-rich water from Malaysia once the rocketing cost of ocean freight returns to more affordable levels. But this could take quite some time.

We will continue our search for other economically priced silica-rich waters to offer customers further choice and will be introducing even more varieties soon. We will also continue our Social Enterprise promise offering significant discounts for those impacted by neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, MS, epilepsy, autism and ADHD.

Silica Levels Naturally Fluctuate

The level of silica content can naturally fluctuate at extraction from the water source by several degrees. Scientific research has shown that there must be at least 30mg/L of silica in mineral water for it to be effective in removing aluminium - which suggests that mineral water with a silica content in the low 30s may not be reliable as a detox.

Strive To Do Less - A Mantra For ME/CFS and Long Covid

Set ‘Doing Less’ as a permanent guide for life.

All of the healing reserves in our bodies, that beautiful, complex armoury of mechanisms our amazing bodies can put into action, are needed to deal with the equally complex and amazing armoury of weapons which viruses use to attack us.

Crucially, any kind of exertion diverts energy away from where it is needed.

When your body is struggling to counter the insidious factors that create multiple varied symptoms, don’t ask the troops to leave the battlefield so that you can take a walk, peel the vegetables, or even sit up. If you succeed in that effort, your illness will worsen. No congratulations for doing whatever it is are justified – it is a victory for your disease.

  • Concentrating on doing more is concentrating on doing what will make us worse.
  • Concentrating on doing more is concentrating on doing what will hamper
  • Focussing on finding ways to minimise exertion in every aspect of our lives will give our immune systems the best chance of finally defeating the remaining bits of whatever it is that is keeping us sick.
  • Strive To Do Less – to create a pathway towards getting better.


Front and Back Cover 281 Beginners-Guide-to-ME-CFS


A Beginner’s Guide to ME/CFS with its repeated message about the importance of rest and the dangers of exercise for people with ME came out in 2013: several years before anyone had heard of Covid or Long Covid.

(The book also explains Les Simpson’s research on how red blood cells with odd shapes that can’t get through the tiniest blood vessels cause oxygen starvation in important tissues and organs. It gives a list of supplements which could improve this situation in some patients.)

In 2015, the US IOM (now Academy of Medicine) Report on ME/CFS suggested a name change to Systemic Exertion Intolerance Disease in recognition of its defining characteristic: ‘exertion of any kind – physical, cognitive or emotional – may adversely affect many organ systems’.

In 2022, NICE accepted a revision of Guideline CG53 on ME/CFS which finally conceded that Graded Exercise Therapy was harmful and should not be used.

These important developments both re-affirm the recommendations given in A Beginner’s Guide to ME/CFS.    

Could Long Covid sufferers benefit as well?

Long Covid has many characteristics similar to ME/CFS, and threatens to engulf us with a new wave of people made permanently disabled unless the dangers of exertion are recognised.

Dr Melissa Heightman, the lead for post-Covid services at the University College London Hospitals NHS Trust believes that careful management of early recovery from the initial Covid infection is vital. “Don’t rush back to significant levels of exercise or very intense and stressful work [until] you’re confident you are fully better,” she says. “It does seem that can increase risk.”

(Melissa Heightman, Long Covid Services

And what about Les Simpson’s recommendations to counteract the oxygen-deprivation caused by non-deformable red blood cells?


Professor Resia Pretorius states that while as many as 150 different symptoms have been reported by Long Covid patients, they can all be explained by lack of oxygen.


The interview between Dr Proal and Professor Pretorius, when Professor Pretorius states that as many as 150 symptoms have been reported in Long Covid, and all can be explained by hypoxia ­(lack of oxygen), see Minute13.

Hypoxia seems to be the result of micro-clotting in the small blood vessels.  If red-blood cells can’t get through the microcirculation and get stuck, this might be how microclots get started.

It may be that Les Simpsons recommendations could help. They aren’t likely to do harm.

Back to our mantra: Strive to do less!

  • We need to revise our thinking and not just worry about the dangers of exercise, but actively turn our thoughts towards the benefits of doing less.
  • Check every aspect of our lives for ways we can do what we need to do with less physical effort! Treat every labour-saving device as medicine!
  • Find our baseline of activity, then see how we can reduce it!
  • Get a Fitbit and bring down the number of steps you take in the course of a day!

And if you, or anyone you know, has never had or heard about ME/CFS but is suffering from post-Covid symptoms, getting a copy of A Beginner’s Guide to ME/CFS could help set you on a novel and helpful path.

Third Eye Chakra –  It is Becoming More Important than ever to Follow our Intuition!

Do you Find it Easy to Meditate?

The Third Eye or ‘Ajna’ is a very ancient chakra, well documented historically. Situated between the eyebrows, it is connected to the pituitary and pineal areas deep within the brain, all 3 playing a huge role in controlling the entire body through the endocrine system.

It is connected with intuition, imagination and inspiration. The glands here  are often referred to as ‘Master Glands’, controlling  all hormones and their 'knock-on' effects.

Dysfunction here may result in allergies, sinus problems, adenoid and eye/ear disorders, vertigo, dizziness, lack of energy and/or sex drive, nervous system and/or hormonal disorders, skin conditions i.e. psoriasis, eczema, impetigo etc. One of the functions of the hypothalamus is temperature control; imbalance here may therefore result in hot/cold flushes and excessive perspiration also sleep issues.


Third Eye Soul Harmony Chakra Balancing Cream


Intuition is so important, especially as our pineal and pituitary glands are now being upgraded by the new Light codes coming in from our Central Sun's rays. These came online at the end of September 2015, in full force, ready to help us shift our frequencies in readiness for this big shift into the 5th dimension of peace, joy, unity, clairvoyance, clairsentience, claircognisance, clairaudience and unconditional love.

The Third Eye chakra is well documented in many ancient and sacred texts and is known to be a very important energy portal. Our ancestors used this very effectively, prior to the closing down of 10 strands of DNA (from 12-2) in the darker times of Atlantis.

Have confidence and trust your first thought, as it’s always the best course of action.

The oils in this Soul Harmony Chakra Balancing Third Eye balancing cream have created a solution to imbalance here. Tried and tested over the last 20 years (when it was sent to me as an idea), developed the combination of several pure essential oils combining together to dissolve any blockages in the bodies leading to imbalance here. They promote a comforting sense of calm, confidence and "knowing therefore making life flow more easily, as synchronicities increase, that lead us to be naturally drawn to the best /optimum path of action for us.

This chakra is connected to the solar plexus and often needs support during the darker months of autumn and winter time. 

Positive potential of this balancing cream:

The oils that I have chosen for this synergy provide an enormous boost of positive energy to this area, whilst incorporating a comforting sense of calm and clarity. The right path will be clear, and your intuition will again work. Follow your gut feelings/instincts on anything and everything in your daily routine and your life will take on a smoother less stressful quality.

Remember, the very first thought is always right. Don't let a 'what if' or a 'but' lead you away! For a healthy and open 3rd eye chakra its best to avoid all forms of fluoride and silver amalgam (mercury based) fillings as both are neurotoxins which calcify your pineal gland, dumbing down your intuition and intuitive abilities. This can lead to excessive stress, time wasting and frustration.

This chakra is requires more support and balance during the autumn and wintertime, due to decreased sunlight hours. 

Mother knows best!

Naturally, you may notice that the first flowers to appear in early spring are yellow (daffodils and primroses), purple (crocuses) and white (snowdrops). Mother Nature is providing us with exactly the vibration that we need at this time of year.

The Third Eye Chakra is often connected to the Solar Plexus Chakra , relating to digestion / confidence / boundaries. Please see this chakra's information and much more on my website for more information and to purchase your cream.  If you have third eye symptoms then you will also benefit from Solar Plexus cream too. All may be used at the same time for maximum affect.

Preventing Prostate Cancer: Reduce Your Risk with Simple, Proactive Choices

by Benny Gavi and Maya Eylon

Published by Book Publishing Company. 2022. Paperback. £15.17 / $17.95. ISBN-10: 1570674094

Prostate cancer is the second most frequent malignancy in men worldwide. Medical research now confirms that specific dietary and lifestyle changes can reduce the chances of developing prostate cancer by up to 50 percent. Preventing Prostate Cancer: Reduce Your Risk with Simple, Proactive Choices by Benny Gavi MD, and Clinical Researcher Maya Eylon is aimed to help at-risk men or those newly diagnosed to make more fully informed decisions about their healthcare.


Cover Preventing Prostate Cancer


Witnessing the change in the quality of life in men who had undergone treatment for prostate cancer, Dr Gavi became motivated to find the connection between lifestyle factors and prostate cancer to help prevent the disease from occurring. Together with Eylon, they reviewed and compiled hundreds of studies into easy-to-understand data, with each study fully referenced. They found that 50 percent of prostate cancer cases are preventable when men make simple dietary changes, get screened for precursors, maintain a healthy weight, and exercise adequately.

Dr Gavi explains how key compounds in specific foods (such as cruciferous vegetables, tomatoes, soy foods, and green tea) keep cancer cells from forming and provides suggestions on the optimal way to prepare each food to reap the most health benefits. He also addresses the effects of exercise and a lower body weight on decreasing one’s risk, as well as the types of screenings available today and how to choose the right one.

Preventing Prostate Cancer is a comprehensive resource packed with the information men need to make vital lifestyle changes that will significantly impact their health.  

About the Authors

Benny Gavi MD, is a graduate of Harvard Medical School and is currently Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine at Stanford University. He is a strong advocate for and expert on health improvement and disease prevention through nutrition and other lifestyle factors.

    Xlear to Ensure Good Night’s Sleep

    Breathing through your nose is one of the best ways to ensure a good night’s sleep and better health. It helps to reduce snoring, balances CO2 levels for better brain and muscle function, plus helps our body fight viruses and pollutants. According to Independent Pharmacist Rita: “Xlear nasal spray contains two ingredients, saline and Xylitol. The saline works by softening and loosening hardened nasal mucus, which is blocking the nasal passages. The Xylitol helps to moisturise the nostrils as well as tackling the bacterial colonies that may be causing inflammation in the nasal passages. Both of these ingredients will help to soften and loosen the nasal mucus, which can then be blown out more easily along with any bacteria and viruses.”
