Milk Thistle Is Back!
Bernard Brom

Milk Thistle is a remarkable herb, the benefits of which have been experienced by hundreds of thousands of South Africans and, without doubt, many millions worldwide. Like broccoli, the humble cabbage and other members of the Brassica family, Milk Thistle originates from the Mediterranean. Its use as a liver tonic has been known and documented for hundreds of years. Its unique mode of action makes it work, among other things, as a selective antioxidant in liver cells, conferring protection from the damaging effects of free radicals. UK-based magazine The Ecologist states that, “Milk Thistle is another weed that can prove a tasty addition to your supper...raw shoots can...be eaten as crudités”.

The Placebo Effect Part 1
Louis Franco / Andrew Pittendrigh

There is an invisible veil that shrouds the world of magic and wonder from our normal, day-to-day, waking minds or consciousness. Perhaps what is beyond this veil is where the other 90% - 99% of our human potential may be found? Through various meditation techniques and practices this veil is slowly lifted.
