Universal Medicine & the Media: Why the Elephant is more Interesting than the Fly

by Marika Cominos, Wellbeing Business Owner, Melbourne Australia

There’s an old tale I’ve heard and it goes something like this:

‘Once there were four blind travellers who came across this ‘Big Thing’ in the jungle. One bent down, felt around, and said, ‘No sweat! It’s only some tree stumps’. Another felt the middle and said, ’It’s a wall – we can’t get around’. Another felt a swish against his face and said, ‘Hey! It’s a flying insect!’. The fourth reached up, got a fright, and yelled, ‘Run for your life – a snake!’ Continue reading “Universal Medicine & the Media: Why the Elephant is more Interesting than the Fly”

Universal Medicine: There are no Damsels in Distress here…

A Simple Truth about Universal Medicine

by Alan Johnston, Pottsville, Australia

A simple truth about Universal Medicine is that it is: 1) universal and 2) medicine. This is my experience. ‘Please explain’, as Pauline Hanson once said.
