Next, the contenders were entrusted with their first mass cooking challenge at London Zoo.

Celebrating Nature’s Alchemy and Fragrance



While the plant is growing, an enormous amount of electrical or vital energy is absorbed into the different parts of the plant. It is first generated by the sun, diffused through the atmosphere, the water, and the earth; and the plants select what they need to build acids, alkalines, phosphates, carbonates, chlorides, glycerides, oils, fats, waxes and so forth. In this profoundly wonderful vegetable kingdom that covers the earth with beauty, perfume and flavor, there is every conceivable requirement for every living creature, even to the breath of life. Plants arrange themselves into families, choose their own habitation and select their own food. Through a long study of the chemistry of soil and plants we are able to predict what we shall find stored away in the leaves, roots, barks, and fruits of particular plants for the purpose of supplying our own bodies with the specific material and specific energy we require.” — Dr. Edward E. Shook, Advanced Treatise on Herbology There are many ways to make contact with nature. Anyone who has spent time communing with it will understand and feel its unseen gifts and potential as much as the more visible ones. The rocks, the earth, the many greens of foliage, and the rainbow colors of the blossoms and fruits speak for themselves. A flower, when you stare into it, can heal by its color and form alone, while its vibration and essence are something else. Nature can respond like a true friend or lover, as events have shown time and again. The Findhorn Project in northern Scotland continues to provide a wonderful experience and revelation of the power of love and tuning into nature, showing that plants are intelligent, responsive, and emotional, lacking only, perhaps, the power of movement in an otherwise full spectrum of humanlike abilities. On stony soil under windy conditions, unbelievable plants, fruits, and vegetables have been produced at Findhorn, proving that really relating to nature can produce some surprising results— such as double-size fruits and vegetables with no pests. This vibrational attunement with nature could produce even more wonderful benefits for world food production. Indeed, we are all going to need to reassess our methods as time goes by. Perhaps we need to recall times when our relationship with growing things was founded on more

simple gratitude and celebration. All over the world in earlier times, trees were “dressed” using ribbons or small toys tied on in the winter, in order to thank the tree for the splendor of its greenness and the joy of its blossom in spring and summer. In fact, there were hundreds of ancient rituals for celebrating nature. Well, dressing was another, to thank the springwater for providing the basis for life. Access to nature was, luckily, something I grew up with, and it has affected my life ever since. My mother produced homemade wine, and I gathered for her the wild yellow broom flowers, nettle tops, blackberries, elderflowers, elderberries, dandelion flowers, and birch sap required. Spending hours and hours over years and years with these colorful plants gave me something that is very much a part of myself. Camping and traveling have given me an accumulated love of mountains, rivers, streams, woods, and valleys; sun, rain, thunder, wind, cold, and heat. Sometimes too tired to put a tent up, I have lain in powder-dry ploughed fields, the odd ditch, or under a sheltering tree. Moonlight, darkness, firelight, and stars have become familiar and friendly. It is there for us all to be touched by. The Sweet Smell of Nature The scent of plants on a wet early spring morning; the smell of newly mown grass; the first roses of summer; the hot, dry, arid herbs on a scorched mountain — these are just a few of the many sweet smells of nature. Smell is one of the most evocative memory joggers. Not only does it stop you at the time, helping you to extend and savor all that is present, but it also has a beautiful way of reviving memories to sweeten the present. When we remember someone, we very often remember their scent. We smell their individual pheromones (from the Greek pherein meaning “to carry,” and hormone meaning “to excite”). Pleasant odors make us feel happy, while noxious ones can irritate or depress. So whether you like the smell of tar, bergamot essential oil, or the latest chemical perfume is for you to decide, but the sensation will change your own body chemistry. It does this through a portion of the brain that controls emotional well-being, which is originally triggered by the nerves of the olfactory organ — the nose. Essential oils come from all parts of plants and trees: bark, berries, seeds, leaves, and flowers. They all basically work to balance our sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, relaxing and bringing harmony and equilibrium, clarity and awareness. This is why they were, and still, are, burned in so many temples around the world in the form of incense: myrrh and frankincense from Africa and western Asia, sage from

Nature and Its Health Pollution has already affected half of Britain’s trees. Visible symptoms like sparse foliage, broken tops, bare branches, or trees to which autumn seems to come early are the outward signs of complex internal problems. A survey done in 1991 showed that 56.7 percent of British trees had lost more than a quarter of their leaves. Britain ranks worst out of the whole of Europe: even heavily polluted Poland and the Czech Republic have relatively healthier trees. A combination of pollution and drought, with ensuing infestations of insects and fungi, seems to be the problem, resulting in the trees’ natural defense systems becoming weaker and weaker. This problem mirrors humans’ own alarming global rise in immune-system diseases and allergy problems.

Our Bodies, Our Health



The Clues to Health and Sickness

It is a great blessing if your body can transport you through life without too many recurring breakdowns. Being unaware of the body’s warning signs is part of a more general loss of many primal and gut instincts. When things do go wrong, there is a tendency to curse your body, treating it as something separate from yourself — an entity that has failed in its service to you. What people often fail to realize is that this reaction is the result of an ever-increasing disconnection with the body, and that the physical breakdown is the conclusion to a long series of unheeded warnings, which the body has been trying to communicate. These communications can be as simple as an awareness that you have not felt quite right for a while, that you have been unusually terse with loved ones or simply the feeling that you can’t cope any more. They can also take a more physical form, like a headache or indigestion — symptoms often suppressed with a pill, when you should be addressing the cause and questioning the reason for them. Sometimes, as with so many children nowadays, ill health becomes a way of life. Allergies, digestive disorders, and overuse of antibiotics are all too common. Listening to your body, observing and asking how and why you react to situations the way you do, can tell you an awful lot about yourself. With physical symptoms, what is often required is a process of seeing the external signs and tracing them back to the inside. Initially, there may be just a jumble of clues and tidbits of information, great and small. Every sensory ability has to be thrown into feeling more and gathering information. Approach the problem like a great detective novel; it will invariably contain many false trails that must be patiently tracked by applying all available wisdom. Drawing conclusions too quickly is as dangerous as overcomplexity and tunnel vision. Simplicity and common sense should be your primary focus. A practitioner can often make sense of all the pieces for you and design a helpful route back to health. In many cases of ill health, a disease progresses for some years before severe symptoms set in. The further advanced a disease is, the harder it is to fi nd the source or to locate the actual moment, or moments, when the initial disharmony spawned the illness. So seeing and being aware of yourself is a habit you can begin at any age and is a lesson that it is never too early or too late to learn. In many ways it is a very natural process. Some may fi nd comfort in knowing that their ill health is their destiny.

The Basics That Can Be Achieved at Home

Nutrition: Eat good foods, avoiding those that contain pesticides, hormones, and any other additives or contaminants. Instead, concentrate on foods that are organic, if available, and rich in vitamins, minerals, and other desirable constituents. An occasional checkup on the body through food cleanses is important. Today, digestive problems are rife and are at the bottom of much ill health. Weak digestive juices are often the cause. Medicinal nutrition: Use healing plants to tone, support, and stimulate. Herbalism: Use plant oils, tinctures, infusions, poultices, syrups, compresses, fomentations, and decoctions. Hydrotherapy: This healing method can be practiced in the bathroom. Showering, soaking, and steaming are just a few ways in which water can be used to circulate blood and massage internal organs and systems — giving them more oxygen and nourishment in order to avoid or dispel congestion and stagnation. Exercise: Keep the body moving, fl exing, circulating, pumping, inhaling, exhaling, and detoxifying. Yoga and breathing exercises are especially good for all of these requirements and for those with limited movement. Body contact: Massage, yoga, refl exology, tai chi, and other movement therapies help the body stay healthy or, if necessary, heal.
