Three Random Questions from a Session

November 4, 2006

Q: I had one of those weird encounters while traveling...this was in Passau, Germany and I was sitting in a square in the middle of the city, resting. Two priests came out of a building and as one walked passed me he was looking at me intently and seemed shocked. What was that?

A: This particular fragment was astonished to see a woman who uncannily resembled his grandmother who had been dead 23 years.

Q: My mother is 93 years of age. She's in good health, but there are some signs lately that a slight decline has begun. She is religious and believes in an afterlife, but she sure seems unwilling to accept death.

A: While we do not predict, we would think this particular fragment would prefer to go out in the blaze of glory rather than to go softly and silently vanish away. That may not be in fact how the end occurs, but she is aware that finality "is coming" and she is trying to come to terms with the fact that it applies to her as well as everyone else.

Q: What would they recommend for me nutritionally to deal with stress?

A: [Note: This answer is geared specifically to this individual and may not be appropriate for all.] We would think that an increase in B-complex vitamins with meals could be of use as could broad spectrum digestive enzymes and the use of DMEA in tablets once a day to help to "stabilize" the (haha) nervous system as well as to assist the body in improving absorption particularly of certain nutrients which this body is beginning to develop some difficulty in breaking down.

For energy we would think that a breakfast omelet with chopped chard and cream cheese could provide readily absorbed nutrition as well as "staying power" and we assure you such a concoction would make the absorption of enzymes and vitamins relatively easy for the body.

For this fragment, oil-based caffeine contributes to stress, while water-based does not. Selecting tea rather than coffee could reduce the stress on this body.
