Yes, Amelia Boynton Robinson is still an activist at 109. The film Selma came out in advance of last weekend’s 50th anniversary of the Selma march that was so viciously attacked by the infamous sheriff Jim Clark, with the approval of the infamous governor George Wallace. So over this last weekend, the actual 50th anniversary, we saw President Obama marching over the bridge, holding the hand of Amelia Boynton Robinson as she was pushed in a wheelchair.  On ”Bloody Sunday” fifty years ago when she was in her sixties, she was beaten unconscious and her photograph was flashed all over the world, causing massive outrage. The events of that day led to the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Amy Goodman interviewed her and Jesse Jackson at the bridge on Saturday.

We recently celebrated her heroic life here in Los Angeles  where she received the Nelson Mandela Leadership Award from Nelson’s grandson Kweku.  The following day, Saturday, February 21st, we held a reception for her at the Creative Visions Center in Malibu.  Director Kathy Eldon, an award recipient from the Mandela family, and I hosted this event.  Amelia did media interviews including a front page LA Times article and video, Saturday March 7th. This video narrates photographs of that day and footage of Amelia at our fundraiser recounting the events of Bloody Sunday to school children.

Many of us are JUST NOW discovering this unsung heroine of the Civil Rights Movement.  A voting rights pioneer already at the age of 10, Amelia and her mother went town to town by horse and buggy to register voters.  Selma was actually Her idea. She was right in the fray with Martin and Coretta King, and is amply depicted in the Oscar nominated film, Selma, although the actual extent of her immense participation is not presented enough. Amelia was a successful business woman and ran for Congress in 1964. Jim Clark knew to target her, dragged her by the neck and put her in jail for a day.  Her followers all went to jail with her in support.

Amelia is a deserving candidate for a presidential medal of honor.  Even now she is currently working to help drug dependent teen parents.  Although I’ve seen her 1905 d.o.b. on her license, sometimes her age is listed as 105, but in any case, Amelia has outlived her savings so she is in need of more than a shiny medal. We honored her here in Los Angeles and raised funds for her needs as a centenarian.  Now we can recognize this charismatic heroine and celebrate her epic journey that started long before the 1960 struggles.

Is it possible that Amelia Boynton Robinson is still an activist at 109? On this  weekend, the Selma 50th anniversary march we see President Obama marching on the bridge, holding the hand of Amelia Boynton Robinson.  On ”Bloody Sunday,” she was beaten unconscious and her photograph was flashed all over the world, causing massive outrage.

Female Poor Circulation

IMG_0343 Female poor circulation is a very common problem.  Our blood system is so unique and is designed to be shared with an embryo.  How we replenish blood every month is part of the miracle of life. When our blood isn’t circulating properly, our feel-good chemicals do not circulate adequately either.  One of the main ”female” remedies in the Homeopathic pharmacopia is SEPIA.  It deals with venous congestion and acts directly on the portal system.  When our blood becomes stuck in certain corners of the body, this stasis creates problems such as weakness, yellowish complexion, and a kind of bearing-down sensation in the pelvic organs.  This results in unexpected urine drips and prolapsed organs.  

Female EssentialThe Homeopathic Medical Classic, the ”Materia Medica” lists each remedy and its effect on every part of the body–mind, head, nose, ears, organs, skin, male, female, etc.  Yes, Sepia affects emotions–irritability, sadness, and also addresses various form of ‘heaviness’ in many areas–heavy, restless limbs, heavy weight on the chest, and bearing down in abdomen.  It says in italics, ”Bearing down sensation in female organs as if everything would escape through the vulva.” (Luckily one doesn’t have to have every symptom for this remedy to work!)

Sepia is just one of the ingredients in the combination formula for women called FEMALE ESSENTIALS.  It covers most female problems–painful irregular periods, menopausal hot flashes, and more.   Sometimes dramatic, sometimes subtle.  An inexpensive one-stop formula to have on hand.  Check it out!

Do You Know Homeopathy?

Do you know Homeopathy?  Homeopathic medicine is a medical practice based on the idea that the body has the ability to heal itself. When it works, it is amazing. Homeopathy was founded in the late 1700s in Germany and is still widely practiced throughout Europe, South America and India. Like Acupuncture, it works directly on the energy field.  Because it is less than a molecule, it is pure laser energy, unburdened by material substance.  It goes right to our own nuclear, cellular mitochondria. It interacts with the body’s normal responses known as symptoms, the body’s expressions as it attempts to rebalance its underlying imbalances.

Homeopathy is based on the idea that “like cures like.”  If a substance causes a symptom in a healthy person, then a small amount of the same substance is likely to cure his illness. A homeopathic dose seeks to enhance the body’s normal healing and self-regulatory processes.  Often the substance would have the opposite effect in its normal gross form, i.e.  Ipecac syrup induces vomiting (sometimes be a good thing).  The name, Ipecacahuana is the Oaxacan word for “The plant that grows on the side of the road that makes you throw up.”   However, in its homeopathic sub-molecular form, it stops vomiting.

Homeopathic pills or liquid mixtures contain microscopic amounts of active ingredients (usually a plant or mineral) for treatment of disease. These highly diluted substances became the basis for our commonly accepted immunization therapy, where amortar and pessle minute amount of a specific substance that triggers allergic reactions would now stimulate your immune system to eliminate the problem.
Longevity Pure Medicine produces combination remedies for various chronic and acute conditions. They are non-toxic, have no side effects, do not interfere with other drugs, create no allergic reactions and are non-addictive. Everyone should have their COLD & FLU remedy on hand so they can nip a cold in the bud.  A good insurance policy! Check out the website.
