Peter Deunov 1944 Prophecy

This I just received from my friend Michael in Canada and thought that I would share it on my blog.  I have read other writings of Peter Deunov of Bulgaria and consider him to be a true Server of the Good and truely an inspired and illuminated teacher and leader.  Here is the text that I received in it's entirety.

The Prophecy of Peter Deunov (Beinsa Douno)

The prophecy of Peter Deunov regarding the end of our civilization and the beginning of the Golden Age on Earth.

Also known under the spiritual name of Beinsa Douno, the Bulgarian Master Peter Deunov (1864-1944) was a being of a very high level of consciousness, at the same time an incomparable musician, that gave during his whole life an example of purity, wisdom, intelligence and creativity. For years he was established close to Sofia where he lived surrounded by numerous disciples, he, by his radiance awakened the spirituality of thousands of souls in Bulgaria as well as the rest of Europe.

Some days before his departure to the other world, he was in a profound mediumistic trance, he made an extraordinary prophecy in regards to our troubled epoch that we are crossing today, a prophecy about the "end of time" and the coming of a new Golden Age of humanity.

Here is this deeply moving testament. It is current and so vibrant that one doubts that these words were spoken almost 60 years ago.

"During the passage of time, the consciousness of man traversed a very long period of obscurity. This phase which the Hindus call "Kali Yuga", is on the verge of ending. We find ourselves today at the frontier between two epochs: that of Kali Yuga and that of the New Era that we are entering.

A gradual improvement is already occurring in the thoughts, sentiments and acts of humans, but everybody will soon be subjugated to divine Fire, that will purify and prepare them in regards to the New Era. Thus man will raise himself to a superior degree of consciousness, indispensable to his entrance to the New Life. That is what one understands by "Ascension".

Some decades will pass before this Fire will come, that will transform the world by bringing it a new moral. This immense wave comes from cosmic space and will inundate the entire earth. All those that attempt to oppose it will be carried off and transferred elsewhere.

Although the inhabitants of this planet do not all find themselves at the same degree of evolution, the new wave will be felt by each one of us. And this transformation will not only touch the Earth, but the ensemble of the entire Cosmos.

The best and only thing that man can do now is to turn towards God and improve himself consciously, to elevate his vibratory level, so as to find himself in harmony with the powerful wave that will soon submerge him.

The Fire of which I speak, that accompanies the new conditions offered to our planet, will rejuvenate, purify, reconstruct everything: the matter will be refined, your hearts will be liberated from anguish, troubles, incertitude, and they will become luminous; everything will be improved, elevated; the thoughts, sentiments and negative acts will be consumed and destroyed.

Your present life is a slavery, a heavy prison. Understand your situation and liberate yourself from it. I tell you this: exit from your prison! It is really sorry to see so much misleading, so much suffering, so much incapacity to understand where one's true happiness lies.

Everything that is around you will soon collapse and disappear. Nothing will be left of this civilization nor its perversity; the entire earth will be shaken and no trace will be left of this erroneous culture that maintains men under the yoke of ignorance. Earthquakes are not only mechanical phenomen, their goal is also to awaken the intellect and the heart of humans, so that they liberate themselves from their errors and their follies and that they understand that they are not the only ones in the universe.

Our solar system is now traversing a region of the Cosmos where a constellation that was destroyed left its mark, its dust. This crossing of a contaminated space is a source of poisoning, not only for the inhabitants of the earth, but for all the inhabitants of the other planets of our galaxy. Only the suns are not affected by the influence of this hostile environment. This region is called "the thirteenth zone"; one also calls it "the zone of contradictions". Our planet was enclosed in this region for thousands of years, but finally we are approaching the exit of this space of darkness and we are on the point of attaining a more spiritual region, where more evolved beings live.

The earth is now following an ascending movement and everyone should force themselves to harmonize with the currents of the ascension. Those who refuse to subjugate themselves to this orientation will lose the advantage of good conditions that are offered in the future to elevate themselves. They will remain behind in evolution and must wait tens of millions of years for the coming of a new ascending wave.

The earth, the solar system, the universe, all are being put in a new direction under the impulsion of Love. Most of you still consider Love as a derisory force, but in reality, it is the greatest of all forces! Money and power continue to be venerated as if the course of your life depended upon it. In the future, all will be subjugated to Love and all will serve it. But it is through suffering and difficulties that the consciousness of man will be awakened.

The terrible predictions of the prophet Daniel written in the bible relate to the epoch that is opening. There will be floods, hurricanes, gigantic fires and earthquakes that will sweep away everything. Blood will flow in abundance. There will be revolutions; terrible explosions will resound in numerous regions of the earth. There where there is earth, water will come, and there where there is water, earth will come. God is Love; yet we are dealing here with a chastisement, a reply by Nature against the crimes perpetrated by man since the night of time against his Mother; the Earth.

After these sufferings, those that will be saved, the elite, will know the Golden Age, harmony and unlimited beauty. Thus keep your peace and your faith when the time comes for suffering and terror, because it is written that not a hair will fall from the head of the just. Don't be discouraged, simply follow your work of personal perfection.

You have no idea of the grandiose future that awaits you. A New Earth will soon see day. In a few decades the work will be less exacting, and each one will have the time to consecrate spiritual, intellectual and artistic activities. The question of rapport between man and woman will be finally resolved in harmony; each one having the possibility of following their aspirations. The relations of couples will be founded on reciprocal respect and esteem. Humans will voyage through the different planes of space and breakthrough intergalactic space. They will study their functioning and will rapidly be able to know the Divine World, to fusion with the Head of the Universe.

The New Era is that of the sixth race. Your predestination is to prepare yourself for it, to welcome it and to live it. The sixth race will build itself around the idea of Fraternity. There will be no more conflicts of personal interests; the single aspiration of each one will be to conform himself to the Law of Love. The sixth race will be that of Love. A new continent will be formed for it. It will emerge from the Pacific, so that the Most High can finally establish His place on this planet.

The founders of this new civilization, I call them "Brothers of Humanity" or also "Children of Love" They will be unshakeable for the good and they will represent a new type of men. Men will form a family, as a large body, and each people will represent an organ in this body. In the new race, Love will manifest in such a perfect manner, that today's man can only have a very vague idea.

The earth will remain a terrain favourable to struggle, but the forces of darkness will retreat and the earth will be liberated from them. Humans seeing that there is no other path will engage themselves to the path of the New Life, that of salvation. In their senseless pride, some will, to the end hope to continue on earth a life that the Divine Order condemns, but each one will finish by understanding that the direction of the world doesn't belong to them.

A new culture will see the light of day, it will rest on three principal foundations: the elevation of woman, the elevation of the meek and humble, and the protection of the rights of man.

The light, the good, and justice will triumph; it is just a question of time. The religions should be purified. Each contains a particle of the Teaching of the Masters of Light, but obscured by the incessant supply of human deviation. All the believers will have to unite and to put themselves in agreement with one principal, that of placing Love as the base of all belief, whatever it may be. Love and Fraternity that is the common base!
The earth will soon be swept by extraordinary rapid waves of Cosmic Electricity. A few decades from now beings who are bad and lead others astray will not be able to support their intensity. They will thus be absorbed by Cosmic Fire that will consume the bad that they possess. Then they will repent because it is written that "each flesh shall glorify God".

Our mother, the earth, will get rid of men that don't accept the New Life. She will reject them like damaged fruit. They will soon not be able to reincarnate on this planet; criminals included. Only those that possess Love in them will remain.

There is not any place on earth that is not dirtied with human or animal blood; she must therefore submit to a purification. And it is for this that certain continents will be immersed while others will surface.Men do not suspect to what dangers they are menaced by. They continue to pursue futile objectives and to seek pleasure. On the contrary those of the sixth race will be conscious of the dignity of their role and respectful of each one's liberty. They will nourish themselves exclusively from products of the vegetal realm. Their ideas will have the power to circulate freely as the air and light of our days.

The words "If you are not born again." apply to the sixth race. Read Chapter 60 of Isaiah it relates to the coming of the sixth race the Race of Love.

After the Tribulations, men will cease to sin and will find again the path of virtue. The climate of our planet will be moderated everywhere and brutal variations will no longer exist. The air will once again become pure, the same for water. The parasites will disappear. Men will remember their previous incarnations and they will feel the pleasure of noticing that they are finally liberated from their previous condition.

In the same manner that one gets rid of the parasites and dead leaves on the vine, so act the evolved Beings to prepare men to serve the God of Love. They give to them good conditions to grow and to develop themselves, and to those that want to listen to them, they say: "Do not be afraid! Still a little more time and everything will be all right; you are on the good path.  May he that wants to enter in the New Culture study, consciously work and prepare."

Thanks to the idea of Fraternity, the earth will become a blessed place, and that will not wait. But before, great sufferings will be sent to awaken the consciousness. Sins accumulated for thousands of years must be redeemed. The ardent wave emanating from On High will contribute in liquidating the karma of peoples.
The liberation can no longer be postponed. Humanity must prepare itself for great trials that are inescapable and are coming to bring an end to egoism.

Under the earth, something extraordinary is preparing itself. A revolution that is grandiose and completely inconceivable will manifest itself soon in nature. God has decided to redress the earth, and He will do it!
It is the end of an epoch; a new order will substitute the old, an order in which Love will reign on earth."

Swedish Parliament - Serving The Greed

Is there such a concept as Conflict of Interest in Swedish Society?

It was reported in Swedish TV News a few days ago that many members of the Swedish Parliament sit upon the Board of Directors for Private Companies while at the same time being paid for 7 days, 24 hours of work that is paid for by Swedish Taxpayers to work on their behalf.  This investigation by Swedish TV was based on statistics from May, 2010.  I suppose they work during their toilet, lunch or coffee breaks.  I know for a fact that I have never been allowed to work for another or run my own business while on the clock.  This report also shows how open corruption has become so commonplace in Sweden.  I believe I have heard more than one Swede saying that Sweden is moving toward becoming a Banana Republic.  I believe that perhaps Sweden has already arrived.

Now to get to the facts as reported.  The News service reported that a third are working on Boards, although my figure is 35 %.  It turns out that 125 out of 349 Parliamentarians were double dipping or moonlighting as Board members while serving in the Riksdag (Swedish word for Parliament).  I wish that I could also work full time while being allowed to work another job without any decrease in my salary.  I suppose that Politicians are above the law and don't need to follow common work practices as are common citizens who by the way pay their salaries through taxation.

Now, here is the breakdown of statistics to show the procent of  Politicians who are double dipping.  The leading party called the Moderates has 48 % of their party members sitting on Boards of Corporations.  Perhaps they should change their Party name to the Mobberates which may be closer to the truth.

Next is the Folk Party with 43 % of it's Parliamentarians on the payroll of Big Business.  Perhaps they should consider renaming their party to The Rich Folks Party.

In third place is the Center Party with 38 %.  Perhaps we can rename them the Centered on Making Easy Money Party.

Followng them are the Social Democracts with 33 % enjoying their money paid to buy political influence and change the laws that benefit those of wealth rather than the common citizens.  Perhaps, Corporate Democracts would be a more appropriate title for their party.

Next we have the Christain  Democracts with 25 % Board representation.  I thought that we might refer to them as The Anti-Christ Party to better explain their activities.

The Left Party which was formerly known as the Communist Party had 13 % representation for the Corporate world.  Perhaps they no longer read the Communist Manifesto, but take their inspiration from foreign bussiness consultatants.  I believe an appropriate name for them would be The Corporate Commies.

The last on list is the Environmental or Green Party with 10 % siding with those who more often than not defile the Earth.  Perhaps, Greenback Party would be more honest.

This News Release from SVT just re-enforces my opinion that Sweden has moved from a Socialist State to a Plutocracy and now serves those few of wealth rather than it's citizens.  This move toward privitization is just an outward projection of this move from a social state that sees to the needs of it's citizens to a system in which the Politicians in reality push the agendas of  Corporations who can easily manipulate them due to their corruptibility and greed. 

Please refer to my former blog entry  from September entitled, Sweden- Land of Robin Hood Reversed.

Swedish Building Union Exclaims, "Slave Labor!"

This was taken from a story in the local newspaper that came out yesterday.  In Swedish the headline was, "Facket raser:  "Slavearbete"  In English it would read, "The Union exclaims, "Slave Labor".  This was from the October 27th issue of the Värmlands Folkbladet (VF).  Värmland is a province or county in middle Sweden.

For my Swedish readers, here is the link to the article:

Here is a link with all articles related to this story up to today, October 28th on this subject:

Now, for the English speaking and reading audience I will give a rough translation, at least enough for you to get the point and then I will tie this event into an article I read a few weeks back by a Canadian about the European Commision and their job politic.  Now, back to this story in middle Sweden.

The Building Workers Union Local  (Bygg 29:an) alleges that Laszo Bimbo in Munkfors, Sweden operates with slave labor.

"It is tragic that something like this happens this way," said Tony Kyrk, Union Rep for Bygg 29:an in Värmland County, Sweden.

Mr. Bimbo has been importing workers from Hungary and Romania promising them 10,000 to 14,000 swedish crowns per month, but in reality the workers are only paid a small procent of the promised wage.  In some cases according the the foreign workers themselves, they received a wage of 4,000 swedish crowns for 280 hours of work.  If you do the math, this comes out to 14 swedish crowns per hour, which is a little over 2 USD per hour.  The average salary of a building worker in this province is 26,000  swedish crowns per month and the minimun that can be paid as per the collective agreemnt is 146 swedish crowns per hour.

Mr. Bimbo also did not supply his workers with any work clothes or protective equipment which is the common work practice in Sweden.

Again, Mr Bimbo got his workers through a Employment Agency in Hungary and according to EU Law he is only obligated to respect the collective agreement from the country of origin where they are hired.   So, it is legal to pay a lower salary and I assume that nowhere in EU Law is it allowed to lure and deceive and cheat workers out of their agreed upon salaries which was 10,000 to 14,000 Swedish Crowns.

The Union planned to visit Mr Bimbo to ask him to explain his actions and I assume that not much but talk will come out of that meeting.  Mr Sture Hermansson from theHungarian Consul in Sweden said that he knew of Mr. Bimbo and there has been trouble before with him and what he is doing is nothing but human trafficing.

Again, we have a shell game.  I suppose with more involved the easier it is to shun one's responsiblity to keep one's agreements or to show leadership and make some decisions that result in real action taken.  We have the township involved, a union, a business owner in Sweden, a foreign business, the police, County government, and the Swedish State although they always manage to shun their responsibility, and the European Union.

To end this I will quote the comment of Mr. Kyrk, the Local Union Representative when he said, "Slavery was banned in Sweden 160 years ago but this even shows that slavery still continues to occur and this is Sweden."  Well, Mr Kyrk, perhaps you have not read of the Ukrainian, Thai, Chinese, or Vietnamese foreign workers who have been in the news for over a year involved in this game of human trafficing in which a few greedy and dishonest business men form alliances while government and regional authorities take a back seat and just allow these inhumane practices to occur over and over again.  Sounds like corruption to me on many levels.  Sounds like Corruption Swedish style at least as I have observed while living here.

Now for the article about the EC (European Commision) and it's strategy to lower wages in Europe.  Are these events in Sweden just isolated or is there a common stragy with int European Union?  You make your own assumptions.  Here is the link to the article:

Vietnamese Berry Pickers Cheated In Sweden - Then Enslaved In Other EU Lands

A modern form of slave labor spreads from Sweden to other EU Lands.  Today the workers arrive in airplanes from Asia rather than slave ships from Africa.

The Saga of the imported Berry Pickers in Sweden continues, but with a twist.  Our story starts with a group of 290 Vietnamese Berry Pickers who were lured to Sweden with promises of high wages, but again deceived and cheated and ending up in heavy debt as the Chinese and Thai workers have, but with a twist.  Of this group of 290 imported workers, only 126 have returned home to Vietnam.  The rest have remained in Europe to work off their debt to the Employment Agency named TTLC, that hired them and brought them to Sweden reports Swedish Radio Ekot.

"I have to stay in Europe and work here for 2 more years to be able to pay off my debt," said Huong who now works in a restaurant in Warsaw, Poland for 3,500 swedish crowns per month (about 525 USD).

To have a better understanding of the history of the Berry Pickers dilemma, I recommend you read my previous blog entries on Chinese Berry Pickers, Thai Berry Pickers, and Slave Wages in Modern Sweden.

A Vaccination Warning from India

Passing this vaccination story on that I received from my Canadian friend, Michael...... This is a follow up blog entry to compliment the last entry entitled,  Vaccinations - Just Say No! 
Here's one for you. M.

Avika and Anika Sharma were given the vaccinations at a private nursing home by Dr. Satyaveer Singh. Within about 15 minutes, both little girls were dead.
Dr. Singh disappeared shortly after the incident, which is under investigation.
According to Indian MSN News:

"The Indian Medical Association's local president Dr Santosh Aggrawal, who visited the hospital after the incident, confirmed that the health of the twins deteriorated after being administered the vaccine.
"The doctor had a fresh supply of the vaccine. Still there could be something wrong with the batch of vaccines. Similar deaths have been reported from Kanpur and Lucknow," he added."
In related news, Australia is having vaccine problems of its own, as officials recently confirmed that the seasonal flu vaccine, Fluvax, caused convulsions in 99 children. The rate of seizures was 50 times higher than would ordinarily be expected with a vaccine.

Vaccinations - Just say No!

Here is my public service message for the week.  I myself haven't taken any vaccinations in over 25 years and have no intentions of doing so.  A good dose of common sense followed by exercise and a bit of research into healthful foods and detox methods will do your body a world of good.  If you did vaccinate yourself last year don't be too hard on yourself.   Google:  MMS (Miracle Mineral Suppliment), Grapefruit Seed Extract, and CH 77. 

Don't trust Corporations or Government and their paid experts to do that which is best for you and those you love.  Protect yourself and your loved ones.  No one else can or will.

This time swine flu vaccine is 'hiding' in the seasonal flu 'shot' - beware

An Angel Cries by Anette Moreno

This is a Spanish song called, UN ANGEL LLORA DE by ANETTE MORENO that I thought was nice to listen to even though I do not know the words.  Sometimes it is nice to listen to music in another language  and just feel it.  I hope that my readers enjoy it as much as I do.

The Wisdom of Sri Aurobindo - Part 3

This will be my last blog entry with the wise and timeless sayings of Sri Aurobindo of India who shared these words with the world between the years of 1913 to 1915.  Again these are from a book I have in my bookcase entitled, Sri Aurobindo - Thoughts and Aphorisms.  These will be miscelleous sayings from throughout this book.

1.  The existence of poverty is the proof of an unjust and ill-organized society and our public charities are but the first tardy awakening in the conscience of a robber.

2.  In God's providence there is no evil, but only good or its preparation.

3.  Live within; be not shaken by outward happenings.

4.  What men call knowledge is the reasoned acceptance of false appearance.  Wisdom looks behind the veil and sees.

5.  What the Soul sees and has experienced, that it knows;  the rest is appearance, prejudice and opinion.

6.  There is no sin in man, but a great deal of disease, ignorance and misapplication.

7.  Become and live knowledge thou hast;  then it is thy knowledge the living God within thee.

8.  Care not for time and success.  Act out thy part, whether it be to fail or to prosper.

9.  Not to have heard the voice of God and His angels is the world's idea of saniety.

10.  I know that the opposite of what I say is true, but for the present what I say is still truer.

11.  Love of man, love of woman, love of things, love of thy neighbor, love of the country, love of animals, love of humanity are all the love of God reflected in these living images.  So love and grow mighty to enjoy all, to help all and to love forever.

12.  Imitation is sometimes a good training ship; but it will never fly the flag of the admiral.

13.  Rather hang thyself then belong to the horde of successful imitators.

14.  Distrust the man who has never failed and suffered;  follow not his fortunes, fight not under his banner.

15.  Break the moulds of the past, but keep safe it's gains and it's spirit, or else thou hast no future.

16.  Atheism is a necessary protection against the wickedness of the Churches and the narrowness of creeds.  God uses it as a stone to smash these soiled Card-houses.

17.  How much hatred and stupidity men succeed in packing up decorously and labelling, "Religion"!

18.  Mankind have wearied of strength and joy and called sorrow and weakness virtue, wearied of knowledge and called ignorance holiness, wearied of love and called heartlessness, enlightenment and wisdom.

Cheated Thai Berry Pickers Return to Thailand From Sweden.

Söndag 3 oktober 2010

Blåsta bärplockare återvände till Thailand

På söndagseftermiddagen lyfte flygplanet från Arlanda till Bangkok med 120 thailändska bärplockare. För att komma till Sverige lånade de 20 000 kronor, men har inga pengar med sig hem, sedan arbetsgivaren tagit pengarna och försvunnit.

- Jag är orolig för att komma hem, säger Suphot Srangchat, 37, som jobbat 14 timmar per dygn 55 dagar i sträck.
- Jag är hungrig och kan inte sova, säger han via tolk när Aftonbladet träffar honom på flygplatsen.

Klockan 14.45 startade Thai-flighten från Arlanda med bärplockarna som började sin resa med buss i Åsele i Västerbotten i går kväll. Utan garantilönen motsvarande 16 300 kronor i månaden de blivit lovade av Lomsjö bär.

- Det är väl ändå bra att de tog beslutet att fara hem för att skulden deras kommer ju att bli mindre, men samtidigt känns det ju bedrövligt att de ska måsta fara hem med inga pengar mer än de 6.000 kronor de fick i förskott, säger Bert-Rune Dahlberg, socialdemokratiskt kommunalråd i Åsele, till SR Västerbotten.

Polisen ska nu utreda om det förekommit några ekonomiska oegentligheter i Åsele. Ägaren till Lomsjö bär är fortfarande försvunnen och även så alla pengar, bärplockarnas löner.
- Det skulle ju ha varit gjort några dagar tidigare men det är ju bra att det blir gjort att efterlysa honom och med polisens hjälp få tag i honom, säger Bert-Rune Dahlberg.

This was from the ATL,   Farmers Business News.

I will give a rough translation and my own comments after:

Cheated Berry Pickers return to Thailand. 

On Sunday afternoon an airplane left Arlanda Airport in Stockholm, Sweden  for Bangkok with 120 Thai Berry Pickers.  To come to Sweden they loaned 20,000 swedish crowns, but are returning home empty handed since the Sweden company owner took all the money earned from their work and disappeared.

Aftonbladet, a major Swedish Newspaper met the returnees at the airport and interviewed Supsrangchat, age 37 who worked 14 hours per day, 55 days in a row. (Now, that's slave labor----my comment).

I am hungry and cannot sleep was his comment before boarding the flight back home to his Homeland.

The police will now investigate whether there had been some financial irregularities in Åsele. The owner of Lomsjö berries is still missing, as well as all the money and  berry-pickers' wages. It would have been done a few days earlier but it's good that this gets done to find him and the police's help to get hold of him said,  Bert-Rune Dahlberg, Åsele Township Official.

The only money that they received for their time in Sweden was 6,000 swedish crowns in advance.

The pickers were guaranteed a wage of 16,300 swedish crowns a month by Lomsjö bär in Åsele, Sweden said,  Bert-Rune Dahlberg, Social Democractic Party Township Official in Åsele, to Swedish Radio in Västerbotten (Province or County of Sweden).

If you would like to contact them, here is their website address:        Company information in English.       For my Swedish Readers.

Once again we have another incident of  cheating foreign workers by a Swedish Business and again not much was done to protect them by the Swedish Authorities.  Ari Hallikainen is the owner of  Lomsjö Berry who is suppected of emptying the company account and disapperaing.  Now, Mr Hallikainen and other Swedish Berry Companies are not doing a very good job promoting a positive image of Sweden in our shared world.  Please refer to my former blog entries on the Chinese Berry Pickers and you will clearly see a pattern in this industry.  Once again, I would say, "Shame on You", but again, it will fall upon deaf ears in both the political and the business arenas.

Suat Tuzlak - Serving the Good in the Yukon

Orthomolecular Advocacy : An interview with Suat Tuzlak

OM advocate and
bakery owner, Whitehorse, Yukon Territory,


Why Orthomolecular Medicine?


Just over a year ago, our son developed a severe mental illness which landed him in the hospital. During those difficult days, all we heard from our family physician and psychiatrist was that he would have to take psychiatric drugs for the rest of his life or end up in a “crazy hospital.” We didn’t want to accept this, and within a month we had the good fortune of learning about possible help from OM. We went to see Dr. Abram Hoffer in Victoria immediately. OM made more sense than the other options as it is a nutritional approach which goes beyond treating disease, and promotes optimum health. I like the fact that, unlike drugs, vitamins and nutritional supplements don’t have negative side effects. It is much less expensive than drugs, available without prescription, and is less complicated and safer than conventional psychiatric approaches. I also very much appreciate how OM works alongside other methods for treating mental illness, rather than insisting that it is the only way.

How do you promote OM?

I have ordered books written by Abram Hoffer and Linus Pauling, plus 20 copies of the documentary “FoodMatters.” These are available to the public either for purchase or to borrow. I also share them with the Yukon Mental Health nurses. (I find these progressive professionals show a lot of enthusiasm compared with other mental health practitioners.)  For the twelve employees at our business I always have available vitamin C in 1 kg bottles at no charge. Recommended maintenance dose is six grams a day. This is to improve their health, and I have to admit my motivation is a little selfish, too. I get more productive, energetic and dependable workers who take fewer sick days.

What is your favourite part of the advocacy work that you do?
Why Orthomolecular Medicine?
Watching people get excited and  benefiting from this approach, not only those who have a serious mental illness,  but also average people who are interested  in attaining optimum health. It makes me  happy to see them healthier, not falling ill as much, and living with greater vitality.  I know a whole range of people who  have benefitted, such as employees at my  bakery, family members, colleagues and bakery, family members, colleagues and  strangers. I know a tradesman who drinks pretty heavily, and who used to get sick  often. One day I gave him a big bottle of  vitamin C as a gift.  Recently, he reported a great improvement in his health and well-being. His eyes were lie up with excitement and he had a big smile on his rough face. Every morning, I take great  pleasure in preparing vitamin C cocktails for each of my family members. That quiet ten minutes of stirring is now part  of my daily meditation.
What difficulties, if any, have you come across?

It is frustrating to try and share this with conventional medical practitioners. As I attempt to share even the simplest Orthomolecular materials, the usual response is that the FDA-recommended amounts of vitamins are sufficient, and secondly that high doses of vitamin C may cause kidney stones. On the other side of the spectrum, some well-meaning friends with an interest in natural health were suspicious of high dose vitamin treatments. They questioned why it would be necessary to take massive amounts of supplements when abundant good, fresh organic food was readily available.

What do you do when not advocating OM?

I love to produce food of the highest quality for others. You may also call me a sustainable, organic agriculture advocate. I have been running a small organic food establishment for 25 years. This businessis heavily involved in the community and promotes good nutrition for residents as well as institutions such as schools, soup kitchens, and a women’s shelter. I sincerely believe that good food is a core foundation for social justice.  I am happiest when my business can help support sustainable agriculture and fair trade. Food purchase decisions, even on a small-scale (like choosing an organic apple over a hamburger) have a great impact on the environment. It makes me feel really good that this business, though modest, can use its purchasing power to benefit the world.

What advice do you have for people who have never heard of OM and for other advocates?

For those who are new to OM, I usually give them the simplest books from Hoffer and Pauling, and also share the story of our family’s big challenge. For other advocates, definitely I’d suggest they attend the annual OM conferences. I’d also encourage them to try OM’s advice for health maintenance. Starting with the basic Hoffer Protocol, they can experience for themselves the beneficial effects in their body and mind.


Why has my doctor never heard of Orthomolecular Medicine?

Many OM supporters are quick torespond to this question with an obvious answer: because medical schools do not teach Orthomolecular Medicine. While this may be true, it is not a complete answer since the medical system does not exist in a vacuum. In reality, it is reflective of society’s current health values and beliefs. Therefore, a more precise answer as to why doctors are unaware of OM would be this: society is currently entrenched in a medical model based on science, with its limiting confines of what constitutes“medicine” and “science.”Over the last 100 years or so, as the scientific model came to solidify into what today is our popular mainstream medical model, the converse occurred to nutrition: it became outdated. Nutrition was relegated to the domain of the female and to the popular sector of health, in other words, the non-scientific. And so,the current medical model leaves little room for therapies that fall outside the mainstream belief surrounding science.Orthomolecular Medicine utilizes the often overlooked power of nutrients that once stood at centre stage, before“pharma-science” lured the medical profession to its side.Watching people get excited and benefiting from this approach, not only those who have a serious mental illness,but also average people who are interested in attaining optimum health. It makes me happy to see them healthier, not falling ill as much, and living with greater vitality.I know a whole range of people whohave benefitted, such as employees at my bakery, family members, colleagues andstrangers. I know a tradesman who drinks pretty heavily, and who used to get sick often. One day I gave him a big bottle ofvitamin C as a gift. Recently, he reported a great improvement in his health and well-being. His eyes were lit up with excitement and he had a  big smile on his rough face. Every morning, I take great pleasure in preparing vitamin C cocktails for each of  my family members. That quiet ten minutes of stirring is now part of my daily meditation.
