While on my quest to finding ways for living a more elegantly healthy, medication- free life, I have discovered a wealth of helpers. One that I first heard about through Paul Nisson is Moringa Powder Superfood. That was a few to several years ago. Last week, while in Whole Foods, I noticed Moringa Powder, read the label and bought a one size trial pack. When I got home I immediately tried it by placing the contents in a few ounces of water and stirring. The taste, a bit bitter, told me the power of this Superfood. Within a few minutes I felt a lift in my energy. I soon returned to WF’s and bought the larger size. Moringa has proven to be one of my best Superfood purchases to date.


About 15 years ago my husband and I visited a PermaCulture Farm (Cascada Verde)  located on the Pacific Coast side of Costa Rica, in the town of Uvita. The owner told us to feel free to eat the leaves off certain trees on the property. He said they had a strong medicinal property that helped with digestion and elimination. To get to the point, they did taste medicinally bitter, and they helped improve my digestion and elimination. It was not just the relaxed environment of the farm that got my gut to work better, of this I am sure.


In one interview with Dr. Daniels, she suggests that people can always get an important part of what they need by eating the weeds in their yards. Wow, I guess she thinks everyone has a yard? No, I am sure she does not! But  a person should consider what is being sprayed on that yard, or on the neighboring one.  I guess if one could, or had to, it would be better than what is often available to many in stores. Anyway, when I heard her speak about the power of weeds I thought of Moringa Powder. It is bitter and has that wild-bitter taste that weeds usually possess. Bitter is an important taste in regaining health by cleansing the blood, strengthening the heart, small intestines, liver, and gallbladder.

There are some links to Dr. Daniels on YouTube and she has has a weekly radio show. From what I have read people find them very informative. I have listened to a few and agree.


So, if you do not  feel comfortable eating weeds from your yard or anyone elses. Or, you do not have access to them.  If you just don’t feel well enough, or have the time to go scavenging for weeds anywhere, Moringa Powder is something to try. Also, Parasites do not like bitter. So, if bitter does not appeal to you, or is completely revolting, then it may be an indication of parasites, candida, etcetera having too much of a say in how you feel. All of these entities greatly influence our decisions. This is true in many categories of our lives, not just food. That is a whole other discussion, and something I invite you to think about. It could change your life for the better.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi


  1. Good info on the bitter herbs and taste alteration of having parasites. Are you still taking bentonite clay and following some of Donna’s protocols? I have been following your blog and just interested in an update of any progress that you have made in continuation or discontinuation.

    • Hi Kara, I am alternating between clay and charcoal. Very small doses. 2 tbs of the internal use blend from Eyton’s Earth. It is part Bentonite. I only take two caps of Charcoal. Since starting the Parasite Protocol of Dr. Kalcker – Kerri Rivera it was hard to fit in the clay with the all the other things. For Donna’s system to work I needed at least 8 tbs of clay and her herbs or Berberine. It was not working for me any longer – I was not progressing and my joint pain in my hips was intensifying. In the future I would consider trying again for short periods of time, taking more clay. I do think that Donna’s program – can work for some people, it did help me until it just did not any more. I recently – very recently – am trying the Turpentine regimen from Dr. Jennifer Daniels. I will write about that soon in some short segments. I do want to say that I have found Kerri Rivera’s Program very helpful, but drinking CD MMS after awhile is hard to do. The enemas and baths are very helpful. All the people that I am in touch with on UHP that have tried the CD enemas find them extremely helpful for clearing the mind, getting rid of some of what will not come out right at the end of the colon, and more. The Turpentine Protocol of Dr. Daniels is also very helpful for clearing brain fog. Candida is probably the major cause of that symptom. Thank you for writing and reading. Mary
