Although most of us in South Africa consider Spring to prance through our doors on September 1st, it’s just the whiff of her fragrance hinting at her arrival on the equinox. This year the sun crosses the equator on September 23rd to reside in the southern hemisphere for the next six months.
The last of the northern latitudes occupied by the sun marks the Virgo month. For those in the north, summer may offer the prospect of autumn. In the south, Old Man winter can hang on grimly – to see us pull out our woollies just when we thought we’d head for the beach. Kali Sulph is the tissue salt for this mutable time of year.
This year started with a bit of a surprise, to say the very least. A few days before we were due to reopen in January, our groundsman alerted us that there was something strange going on in the kitchen. He could hear a peculiar hissing sound, and the windows appeared misty and hazy. He couldn’t see anything further through the closed blinds.
I’m not sure where the idea arose of tissue salts having a negative ionic charge as being the most potent form, but we receive many queries along these lines. Perhaps this idea has more to do with chelated mineral or other supplements that aren’t real biochemic tissue salts. Continue reading Should tissue salts have a negative ionic charge?
In today’s fast-paced world where technology impacts on almost every aspect of life, it’s quite easy to lose track of things. Constant pressures demand instant answers – telephone calls, emails, text and other social messages pay intrusive visits, and you can begin to feel fragmented and exhausted as your attention is drawn from one place to another at lightning speed. It wasn’t quite the same in the ‘good old days’, whatever else those may have been; the amount of daily input into your brain today is far more intense and can become overwhelming.
Sunbeams are again kissing our southern earth as the daylight hours increase and we witness Nature’s reawakening to Spring. The September equinox marks the passage of three quarters of our calendar year, with the sun crossing the equator on its southward journey between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn.This midpoint of the solar cycle is an interesting place to reflect upon the year thus far. I have been humbled to see many of the events in my Fate of the Nation forecast for South Africa in January play out during the course of this year. Continue reading Spring Reflections
On the afternoon of March 23, in the midst of a week of South African public holidays, I returned home from the office to the news that one of our hens had been found dead in the coop. This happens from time-to-time; our chickens live a happy free-range foraging life in the paddocks, eventually get old, and pass away. I assumed it was one of those natural events, and mentally noted that it had happened on the day of a lunar eclipse. Continue reading Boundary Issues: Cell Invaders Part 2
After a few months of dedicated work, we’re delighted to officially announce the launch of our newly redesigned website, which was soft-launched last week.

Carrying over from the events in the last quarter of 2015, the voice of the youth features strongly during the first few months, with some revolutionary expectations. They are sincere in their conviction that things can never be the same again, and that change is within their grasp. Aware of the power of communication, they use the social and traditional media effectively for their voices to be heard and influence the citizens. Demands for change in institutions such as universities, banks and possibly the judiciary persist together with a sense of defiance in the face of authority and previously accepted norms.
