This is along one of my favorite hikes.
Natural interventions are not for the feint of heart! You don’t just take 1 clove of garlic and solve a bad health situation.
If you are not willing to do it at this level I recommend you go to your Medical Doctor for antibiotics!
This is 1 bulb of garlic ( 10-14 cloves) finely diced. I chase this down with chocolate milk (the best thing I have found to tame the burn) a heaping teaspoon at a time. I am doing this because I have a stubborn sinus infection in the right side of my head. I will do this for 3-6 days. DO NOT juice 1 bulb of garlic and drink it as it is very hard to keep down that way. Dicing it is like making it timed release. After a day you will start having a garlic aura around you!
I have taken 3 bulbs a day for three straight days and tapered down for three more days to 1 a day when I had bad bronchitis (coughing up puss from my lungs).
There are other herbs that can be eaten at high levels for a variety of health situations. Expand your consciousness!

Man’s Search for Meaning
Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.
When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.
Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Author Viktor Emil Frankl (26 March 1905 – 2 September 1997)
Man’s Search for Meaning is a 1946 book by Viktor Frankl chronicling his experiences as an Auschwitz concentration camp inmate during World War II, and describing his psychotherapeutic method, which involved identifying a purpose in life to feel positively about, and then immersively imagining that outcome. According to Frankl, the way a prisoner imagined the future affected his longevity. The book intends to answer the question “How was everyday life in a concentration camp reflected in the mind of the average prisoner?” Part One constitutes Frankl’s analysis of his experiences in the concentration camps, while Part Two introduces his ideas of meaning and his theory called logotherapy.
According to a survey conducted by the Book-of-the-Month Club and the Library of Congress, Man’s Search For Meaning belongs to a list of “the ten most influential books in the United States.” At the time of the author’s death in 1997, the book had sold over 10 million copies and had been translated into 24 languages.
Experiences in a concentration camp
Frankl identifies three psychological reactions experienced by all inmates to one degree or another:
(1) shock during the initial admission phase to the camp,
(2) apathy after becoming accustomed to camp existence, in which the inmate values only that which helps himself and his friends survive, and
(3) reactions of depersonalization, moral deformity, bitterness, and disillusionment if he survives and is liberated.
Frankl concludes that the meaning of life is found in every moment of living; life never ceases to have meaning, even in suffering and death. In a group therapy session during a mass fast inflicted on the camp’s inmates trying to protect an anonymous fellow inmate from fatal retribution by authorities, Frankl offered the thought that for everyone in a dire condition there is someone looking down, a friend, family member, or even God, who would expect not to be disappointed. Frankl concludes from his experience that a prisoner’s psychological reactions are not solely the result of the conditions of his life, but also from the freedom of choice he always has even in severe suffering. The inner hold a prisoner has on his spiritual self relies on having a hope in the future, and that once a prisoner loses that hope, he is doomed.
Frankl’s meaning in life is to help others find theirs.
The mind is everything. What you THINK you become. Buddha
(Pro 3:5) Trust (have faith in) God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
(Mat 19:26) Jesus looked hard at them and said, “No chance at all if you think you can pull it off yourself. Every chance in the world if you trust (have faith in) God to do it.”
(Jas 2:26) For as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith (trust) without works (action) is dead.
Trust to me is the ultimate recognition and respect of another.
I like the slogan of Hallmark Cards “when you care enough to send the very best”.
Trust is caring enough to do for and give to another the very best, what is for their highest good. We actually ask, “What is for their highest good?” when we are planning to take action.
“He who does not trust enough, Will not be trusted” Lao Tzu (Chinese Taoist Philosopher, founder of Taoism, wrote “Tao Te Ching” (also “The Book of the Way”). 600 BC-531 BC)
“Faith is not belief without proof, but trust without reservation.”
“We’re never so vulnerable than when we trust someone – but paradoxically, if we cannot trust, neither can we find love or joy” Walter Anderson
Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom. Thomas Jefferson
All men profess honesty as long as they can. To believe all men honest would be folly. To believe none so is something worse. John Quincy Adams
Accuracy is the twin brother of honesty; inaccuracy, of dishonesty. Nathaniel Hawthorne
The greatest truth is honesty, and the greatest falsehood is dishonesty. Abu Bakr
No legacy is so rich as honesty. William Shakespeare
Honesty is being true to yourself and the universe at the same instant.
Have the courage to say no. Have the courage to face the truth. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity. W. Clement Stone
Be Impeccable With Your Word. Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love. Don Miguel Ruiz
The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively. Bob Marley
Live so that when your children think of fairness, caring, and integrity, they think of you. H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Integrity is doing what you say and saying what you do; consistency in living (doing and saying).
Neutrality doesn’t stand alone; it stands with trust, honesty, integrity, and kindness or it is nothing!
Here is possibly the most maligned word in the English language. Check the internet, do a Google search on neutral or neutrality quotes. You would think it is inherently evil or negative to be neutral. The people that make neutrality evil or negative have a side (attachment) to protect.
I do not use neutral in a sense that says I will do nothing; but in a sense that if I am neutral I can do anything.
Analytical-Literal Translation Mar 9:23 So Jesus said to him, “If you are able to believe [or, to have faith]-all [things are] possible to the one believing [or, having faith]!”
If this is true, then being in a neutral position in your thinking opens you up to “all things are possible”.
Think on this:
Nature is neutral, science is neutral, technology is neutral, etc. When there is a controversy to be resolved both sides want an absolutely neutral arbitrator. Is a neutral arbitrator inherently evil or negative? I think not, he probably understands my concept of THINK very well!
- not taking part or giving assistance in a dispute or war between others:
a neutral nation during World War II.
- not aligned with or supporting any side or position in a controversy:
The arbitrator was absolutely neutral.
- of or belonging to a neutral state or party:
- of no particular kind, characteristics, etc.; indefinite:
a neutral personality that made no impression whatever; a sex-neutral job title.
- gray; without hue; of zero chroma; achromatic.
matching well with many or most other colors or shades, as white or beige.
- Botany, Zoology. neuter.
- not causing or reflecting a change in something:
It is believed that the new tax law will be revenue neutral.
Science is a way of knowing, and a tool. Like all ways of knowing and tools, it can be turned to bad uses. And it can be bought and sold, and it often is. But it is not in itself bad. Like electricity, it’s neutral. Margaret Atwood
Technology is neutral: It convicts and finds innocents. We must make it a regularized part of the system, giving defendants access to DNA testing and evidence whenever it might be relevant. Eliot Spitzer
It may be the optimist in me, but I think America has a uniquely powerful and capacious glue internally. The American identity has always been ethnically and religiously neutral, so within one generation you have Italian-Americans, Irish-Americans, Chinese-Americans, Jamaican-Americans – they feel American. It’s a huge success story. Amy Chua
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. Aesop
Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. Mark Twain
You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late. Ralph Waldo Emerson
Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love. Lao Tzu
This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness. Dalai Lama
Kindness is always thought of in terms of act, do, create, etc.(You can fill in many more.)
