It is with gratitude and a sense of accomplishment that I
announce the debut of the new www.KamalaHealth.com webpage. While the
old one represented the support of a community of instructors that helped me
grow into the therapist I am today, the new one represents the direction of the
Thanks to the real clients who posed for treatment pictures, and my friend who
patiently worked with me for a year designing the page. Take a few minutes to
visit, and give me your feedback. The buttons are easier to use, and the entire
format reads easily on your SmartPhone. PERSONAL:
I’l be out of the office, attending the Maya Practitioners Convention
in Mexico, 3/17-3/21. It wil be good to reconnect with Rosita, and to learn some
additional male health and female pelvic pain release techniques. We are also
visiting the original shrine of Ix Chel in Cozumel, the patron goddess of the work,
and re-dedicating ourselves to her work.
Meanwhile, I have been reclaiming my yard and gardens at home, a big job
since it has been almost 8 years (due to travel, teaching and aging parent care)
since I have been home in Friendswood most evenings and weekends. The
herbal gardens are replanted, the native plants sections have been released
from their frozen, dead wood and are sending new sprouts out to nourish the
bees and butterflies, and I am waiting on my tropicals’ col ection to see what wil
send out a green shoot and what just gave up after 2 years of late freezes. HEALTH WARNING
: My family has ful y recuperated from the flu that hit the 3 of
us, one at a time over consecutive days, on Valentine’s weekend.
used the Tamiflu/Medrol dose pack combination on Days 1 and 2 to no effect,
except the $120 out of my checking account. If you have a combination of
fatigue, fever and a cough that doesn’t go away in a couple of days, with or
without the sensation of a goril a sitting on your chest, welcome to the 2011 Flu.
This is a different strain from the Flu Shot strains. Peak season hitting Houston over
next 3 weeks. Stock up on Oscil ococcinum, herbal cough syrup and Alacer
Vitamin C 1000 units. Take the Vit C daily now through May, and use the rest
when first symptoms hit. Let the fever run for 2 days, keeping up your fluids, then
treat with Salgesic (from my office) or herbal fever reducer. If you are effected,
plan for a week in bed, and another 10 days to recuperate from the fatigue--
light work days. Wear a mask to prevent your germs from affecting others, and
to protect your damaged respiratory system from the high pol en counts we wil
have later this month. Congaplex (available in my office) wil get you over the
lung cel damage quickly, and back to breathing deeply and normal y.
This flu kicked my butt: my daughter reminded me I had not been seriously sick
for more than a day or 2 since she was 9. She’s now 21. Take your precautions,

My taste buds are just now returning from 3 weeks of
ginger and lemon tea, so I’ve been craving sharp pungent tastes. Thanks to
Vegetarian Times for this offering of spring veggies: Red Cabbage Salad with Pears and Walnuts.

served as soon as it is made so the cabbage retains its vibrant color. Ingredients:

toasted walnut pieces; 1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion. To make pomegranate
syrup, simmer 1 cup pomegranate juice with 2 Tbs. sugar and 1 Tbs. lemon juice
over medium heat 1 hour, until thick.

smal bowl. Set aside.
2. Toss together cabbage, pear slices, walnuts, and red onion in serving bowl.
