Seems to be quite common here, where the air is so moist, to have foot fungi. I know, because I saw it on the yoga and chi students, not mentioning the guys in town with the yellow, cracking, swollen painful feet. I had it for a time in Montana, but it left while on a fast. A reader asked me to post these recipes she found, so here they are, in her writing:
-So, Vick’s Vapo Rub is good because of the mixture of Thymo (Thyme Oil), Camphor and Eucalyptus Oil. This you apply 2x a day for a few weeks, if it’s a mild case, or 5-16 months if extreme.
My daughter says, I was watching a documentary about Mae West and one of her lines was “do you believe in love at first sight?” Mae says, “It certainly saves time…”

I was trying to make our favorite and fantastic fried rice recipe without the brown sugar and sesame oil and it turned out good! Who knew? I made the sauce in the blender instead of the pan and replaced the brown sugar with grapes and the sesame oil with tahini. I was so surprised that it was good! Dates would have worked too but I didn’t think of that and my grapes were about to turn bad.

I’m harvesting my first cacao pods! I’ve shelled the dried seeds to use as cacao tea. And the beans to ground for my desserts. The nibs to use in my oatmeal and cookies! It worked very well. No bitterness at all. Beautiful!
Recipe of the day – DIY Harvest Cacao
3-4 Cacao Pods, slightly soft and dark red
Cut the pods in half. You can cut off the ends first, if you like. Scoop out the insides. You can eat the white flesh around each seed, if you like. But you don’t have to! They dry in the dehydrator and taste like candy! Throw the whole mass on the dehydrator sheets and dry at 150 degrees F. for 20 hours. Put in a bag and mash with a mallet. The shells will come off and you put them in a bag for cacao tea. Put the nibs in another bag, and the white shells in a third. The shells are your tea!
Word of the Day – cosecha – harvest
Tip of the Day- You can put them in the sun. It’s just that the bugs come so fast. You can dry them under 105 degrees F, to keep them raw. But going over 150 degrees will make them bitter and burnt.
Well, my friend the froggy, the one basically lives in my house – I finally discovered how he was getting in. I watched his legs disappear through these tiny holes in the bathroom sink. Then, if I’m very observant, I can watch his little eyes peak out when he thinks I’m not looking. Here he is peaking out of the bathroom sink holes.

Tip of the Day – This smells really strong, as strong as blue cheese. Don’t be afraid! You could also make it without the seasonings if it’s too strong for you. It was most excellent in M’s stir-fry and sauce, in black-eyed peas, with beans or rice.
Yesterday I looked in chagrin at the smoldering hillside, on the property bordering mine, where the new neighbor’s gardener had left. They don’t have a house yet, just burning brush. At 11:30 p.m. I was awakened, perhaps the nearby crackling. Jumped up, looked out, and uncontrolled fires were wreaking havoc. I grabbed the flashlight and my boots, took the long watering hose, and proceeded to put out fire after fire. Jim, the neighbor was on the hillside talking down to me. I couldn’t see him, but knew his voice – a comforting voice
in the quiet of the night. I asked him to call the fire department. The stars were truly amazing through the smoke. I kept trying to cover my face with my short hair, but after an hour or so my eyes were stinging and I started to cough. My arms were
aching from holding the hose upward to the hillside. I had to vacillate running up to the Casita Guadua – the bamboo house, where there was so little water I was using a trickle to put out the approaching flames. Then, I would go down and to the corner again.
Then back up, and the flames were within 5 feet of the casital Holy cow. Jim was gone, but another couple was talking to me and shining their flashlight on the next bit of flames. There was nothing anyone could do as mine was the only hose. Their houses were too far away, yet they had seen the flames from up the mountain and come down. Sweet and comforting, Otis and Jessica to come down after midnight. They left after awhile and it was so silent, in my mind and outside, except for the cracklingof the brush and newly catching mesquite/fice trees.
When I started feeling overwhelmed,I said, “I need help,” and immediately there were golden beings at my back. Fires went out. The irrigation hose on the ground sprouted two leaks which kept back the fires. Come on! I did my Shaman way of becoming pure love and facing the spirits of the fire, and IMMEDIATELY they went out, one by one.
I went in to the house without thinking, knowing it was all taken care of. This morning I translated my speech, ready for the neighbors, and put it in my pocket. They stood on the burnt slope and I told them I needed a conversation. With wide, gentle eyes, they never looked down or away. Never looked anything but helpful. Six of them. I told them how dangerous it was for their worker to start fires in the wind, and repeated I needed the hose repaired by the end of the day. Then Wilson drove by. I caught him, and he translated for them as well, telling them to call him and he would help repair this afternoon.
I’m tired, ha.
But still with empty mind and remembering the quiet of the night, the beauty of everything even with the sounds of Tiko and Lucas barking at the fire. I’m SO taken care of.

A friend told me about Borax for candida and other problems. I said, “Borax? You mean the soap powder?” And yes indeed, it is!
Use as essential Mineral: Firstly dissolve a lightly rounded teaspoonful (5-6 grams) of borax in 1 litre of good quality water. This is your concentrated solution keep it out of reach of small children.
Standard dose = 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of concentrate. This has 25 to 30 mg of borax and provides about 3 mg of boron. Take 1 dose per day mixed with drink or food. If that feels right then take a second dose with another meal. If there is no specific health problem or for maintenance you may continue indefinitely with 1 or 2 doses daily.
If you do have a problem, such as arthritis, osteoporosis and related conditions, cramps or spasms, stiffness due to advancing years, menopause, and also to improve low sex hormone production, increase intake to 3 or more spaced-out standard doses for several months or longer until you feel that your problem has sufficiently improved. Then drop back to 1 or 2 doses per day.
For treating Candida, other fungi and mycoplasmas, or for removing fluoride from the body – using your bottle of concentrated solution:
Low dose for low body weight: 100 ml or 1/8 teaspoon of borax powder or 500 mg; best with or after main carbohydrate meal.
Medium dose for heavier individuals or more pervasive Candida: 200 ml or 1/4 teaspoon/1000 mg of borax powder; take with or after 2 meals.
High dose for strong fungal/Candida problems such as autoimmune diseases, cancer or dementia: ½ tsp of borax powder mixed with food.
Always start with a lower dose and increase gradually to the intended or effective maximum. Take the effective amount as long as required for 4 or 5 days a week, or interrupt for one week each month, or periodically alternate between borax and another fungicide.
For vaginal thrush fill a large size gelatine capsule with borax and insert it at bedtime for one to two weeks. With toe fungus or athlete’s foot wet the feet and rub them with borax powder.
You may take borax mixed with food or in drinks. It is rather alkaline and in higher concentrations has a soapy taste. You may disguise this with lemon juice, vinegar or ascorbic acid.
Recipe of the Day – Rejuvelac
1/4 c. sprouted spring wheatberries
1 gallon water jar with sprouting lid,
mesh or nylon with rubberband
Pour the berries in a jar. Fill the jar with water. Pour the water off the next day. Fill with water and pour it off, through the straining lid, for 2-3 days until they’ve sprouted. Fill it with water and let sit for 2-3 days while it ferments. Smell it, and when it has a slightly sour, lemony taste, it’s working. Gently stir with a wooden spoon twice day. The third day decant into a jar, and that’s your rejuvielac. Refrigerate so it doesn’t keep fermenting.
Word of the Day – fermentacion – fermentation
Tip of the Day – Start with an ounce a day to start developing the good bacteria in your body. Even the most serious of bacteria will be destroyed.
Here’s what my friend, Lucas’ previous owner, wrote about Lucas: “Wow, Wow, Wow! Sooo remember the Lucas saga last year? He has been doing just fine, until lately. He started limping, and showing signs of hip displasia Dorothy was very worried. But then last night she gave him a drop of CBD oil and a half tsp of C60 and today he is happy and running around! I wish it would work that well for me, but, hey, I’m so glad about Lucas that I hardly feel mine
” Then this morning I wrote: So true! It was actually a miniscule part of a drop of CBD oil in his food, with 1/8 tsp. C60., for the body weight above, in case anyone needs that info. Today I watched him awake. His hips gave out underneath him. I gave his the same dose as above and he was back to free energy, free hips and his usual happy self right after breakfast, 4 hours ago, woohoo! Climbed stairs easily and went on his walk with zero symptoms!“
1 green cabbage
1 purple cabbage
1 sweet red onion
1 T. apple cider vinegar, lemon juice or rejuvelac
– optional Seasonings to taste (garlic, cayenne, herbs, caraway seeds) – optional.
Directions: Finely chop cabbage, saving outside leaves. Chop carrots and onion. Place vegetables into a large bowl or crock. Add vinegar and seasonings. Cover with outside cabbage leaves. Place large plate and weight on top. Press down to remove air from Kraut. Leave at room temperature for 3 days or until it is sour enough for your taste. Place in covered glass jar. Refrigerate. It will keep up to 3 weeks. Eat ½ cup a day with meals for great elimination! Another zero fat, healthy bacteria, non-fruit recipe to give you amazing health! In Ann Wigmore’s video she says don’t bother to add any seasonings, the taste is so good by itself. And she didn’t add the vinegar. It helps the fermentation process, but it doesn’t really need help fermenting.

Roast for 10-15 minutes, stirring/turning the pan occasionally, until light golden.
Add the sunflower seeds to a food processor (or high speed blender) and blend until a butter forms, scraping down sides as needed. It took about 15 minutes in my food processor, turning off every few minutes so it wouldn’t overheat. But yours might work better!
Add salt, chia seeds and flax flax seed,and mix/pulse to combine. Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more salt, and sweeteners.
So good on cornbread, waffles, gf toast, bananas, you name it!
