Another month has flown by and the last week of September saw us plant 90 grape vines with friends and family on a perfect sunny day!
Spring is fully here, the wisteria turned on its charm, lilacs bloomed, fruit trees blossomed, and we prepared the outside beds for the greenhouse, in readiness for the pumpkin seeds, cucumber, celery, and tomatoes. The herb garden is brimming with fresh basil, parsley, mint, and rosemary. The front yard is populated with our residents of Magpies and Rosellas so that the early morning enchants us with its symphony of birdsong!
Such gratitude for the simple wonders in life! It reminds me of a poem I wrote in my twenties. I will share it with you in future letters ….
This morning, after drinking my Body Balance, I made a great smoothie using our mineral rich products.
Smoothie Ingredients: Water
1 scoop of True Greens (our salad bar in a jar, full of pre and probiotics)
1 scoop Amino Charge (protein powder, GMO free)
1 stick of celery
Handful of mixed organic berries (we will be picking organic blackberries in March on the farm)
1 spoon coconut oil
Handful of almonds
Felt great! Body invigorated, bowels moved, and all was great in my world. Here’s to the simple things in life once again!
Last night we had a small info night where we shared Body Balance stories. After being iron deficient my whole adult life until I was 44 (almost 8 years ago now), I decided to go for a blood test after having taken Body Balance each day for six consecutive months. Every time I had done this in the past, someone would call me from pathology to let me know there was one glitch in my test and yes, you guessed it … it was my iron … very, very low.
On this particular occasion, no one called me … curious, I called pathology and asked them about my iron levels. To my complete shock, the nurse replied, “they are totally normal.”
You must understand, up until this point, I had NEVER had a NORMAL iron reading!! I did a “YES” and a jump around the house.
Since that time, over these past 8 years, my iron levels have remained normal. I have since understood that iron requires a soup of minerals, co-factors, 80 or more, to be absorbed into the body. Bit by bit, by nourishing my cells with trace minerals, my intelligent body now had the ability to absorb iron.
Give the body what it needs and our miraculous bodies come back into balance, homeostasis. Our body has an extraordinary ability to heal.
And so, it is … one lady noticed she could walk down the stairs without pain in her knees after only a short couple of weeks.
A new customer wrote to me how he was feeling more energy after only his first bottle. The stories go on and on.
Happy birthday to my very quirky, Halloween baby Simi (Simone) who has hit double numbers yet again today, 22?! She has just completed her journalism degree and the world is her canvas!
