I really hope you have enjoyed my new book, published on Amazon 21st March, 2018. Please leave feedback on my books in the comments secion below.

A Precis of the book, duplicated from the back cover:
New Zealander Merrilyn Hope’s third book, entitled  ‘A Life of Natural Health’, is a testament to her belief in, and devotion to, natural healing practices over a period of 40 years or more. The reader who wishes to enhance his/her own healing abilities and improve personal health should find it a valuable resource.
The author believes that most illness can be reversed through beneficial diet, cleansing procedures, the  avoidance of harmful chemicals, and rest and meditation.  All these aspects of health are discussed, with examples where pertinent, in this book.
‘Prevention is better than cure,’ the axiom goes: In preventing or curing an illness, it is essential, first, to eliminate harmful chemicals from your body and your environment.  Many cleansing techniques are given in Ms Hope’s book for this purpose, some of which have proved to be successful in curing cancers and other degenerative disease, by such  eminent naturopaths and doctors as Walter Last, Dr Max Gerson, Dr Clark, and Dr Eva Hill.
Dr Gerson’s anti-cancer method, which famously uses castor oil, enemas, and much raw food, and which the author followed to eliminate a breast lump, is outlined. New Zealand doctor, Dr Eva Hill, cured many cancers in her lifetime: Her more simple, dietary and cleansing procedure for preventing, reducing or curing disease, is detailed within these pages, and so, too, is the three herb formula of Dr Hulda Regehr Clark, who describes her method as a ‘cure for all cancers’.The chapter entitled, ‘List of Complementary Homeopathic Remedies and Sequences’ will be a useful reference, both for students of homeopathy, and for those using homeopathy in the home. Learn what remedies work well with each other, and what remedy will cancel out another remedy. See how the childhood illnesses, mumps, measles, chicken pox, and flu, can all be helped with homeopathy.  Read about how the harmful effects of agricultural chemicals, or troublesome vaccinations, can also be alleviated with correctly selected homeopathic remedies.

Whilst the book is based largely on the author’s experience, and the writings of revered, naturopathic, or homeopathic practitioners, the information given within the book should not be substituted in any way for qualified medical advice.  Do consult your doctor or medical advisor if you are sick.


Banana Alfalfa Drink- A Natural RemedyTo Help Arthritis And Lose Weight

This is a Natural Cleansing Technique:  Banana Alfalfa Drink can help  combat constipation. I have included  gluten free options in the recipe below.

Most arthritics suffer congestion in the bowels of some sort.  Every degenerative disease, in fact, begins in the bowel.  Even if you are not aware of having ‘constipation’, chances are you will have congested bowels, known as constipation.  If  you have cancer, or arthritis, or some other disease, then the bowels will most certainly need plenty of attention, to reverse the condition.   Pockets of waste material can gather in the intestines, and these build up over time, causing auto-intoxication of the body. This can cause uncomfortable reactions, with bloating, tiredness, irritability and depression,  but the end result will be a degenerative disease if the situation is allowed to continue.

So – here is a dietary remedy to cure constipation.  It will also help you to lose weight if it is taken instead of other foods for breakfast several times a week.  Of course, you will need to be prudent with your food choices for the rest of the day.  AND, if you have a health problem and are taking medication of any sort, then you should ask your doctor or naturopath or homeopath about whether this banana smoothie drink is right for you.

The foods in this smoothie will  help to make the body more alkaline – always a help in avoiding disease of any kind – It will provide that essential  bulk, or roughage, which will help to cleanse those clogged intestines, which is another disease-deterrent.

You can substitute this drink for your normal breakfast several days in the week.  It is nutritionally sound, with raw egg, wheat germ, almonds, sesame seeds, dates and banana, which provide many B vitamins, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, iron, magnesium, calcium,  and other nutrients.  Note:  While raw egg white is not recommended because it depletes the body of Biotin, egg white can be safely taken raw without depleting any vitamins,  if it is beaten up with other foods.  Raw egg yolk is highly nutritious, and is given by some therapists such as Walter Last and Dr max Gerson, for treating serious illness such as cancer, arthritis and multiple sclerosis.

Recipe For Cleansing Nourishing Banana Smoothie Breakfast

One large ripe banana.

5  dried apricots OR 5 dates

One cup full cream milk, or soy milk

1 raw egg

2 tablespoons wheat bran:  Omit this if you are gluten sensitive and use 2 tablespoons dessicated coconut instead.

1 tablespoon wheatgerm:  Omit this if you are gluten sensitive and use a tablespoon of sunflower seeds instead.

1 tablespoon psyllium husks

1 teaspoon brewer’s yeast:  Omit this if you are gluten sensitive

1 tablespoon sesame seeds

3 almonds

1/2 cup of alfalfa sprouts

Into the blender bowl put the sesame seeds and almonds.  Blend these up first of all.  Then add the banana, milk, egg, and all other ingredients.

Blend altogether for two minutes.  Drink in place of breakfast.  This is a good breakfast replacement for people who are inclined to rush out the door without eating breakfast.  Take a cup before you leave, and take the rest to work with you.
