Hormonic Theory

Hormonic Theory

A darkened hutch, a midrith grown big, a confused womb and a perimenopausal Guineapig. Fear not fellow readers – the hutch is darkened refers to Calliope’s wistful attempts to block out the light from the thoughtfully installed street lamp outside her bedroom window that doubles as football stadium illuminator, in the belief that darkness helps […]

Rock and Roll, Sticks and Stoners

I had decided that after 18 years of being more or less totally straight edge I was going to spend the summer as a stoner. And what a summer for it! Sizzling, hot and stoned! Ever present sometimes more attention seeking than other times the cancer I have been working with for 9 amazing years […]

2013 – From Dreams to Reality.

    I have been dreaming of far off shores and overseas climes – Thailand to be precise. Not that I have ever been before. The idea of being a medical tourist as it were – of going to a health spa where some-one else makes you 6 organic veggie juices a day, some-one else is leading early morning […]

Thrills and Spills. Anyone for Coffee?

As one would expect, sometimes sticking coffee up your ass can be a messy business…though at least I don’t attempt to stand on my head during the act, or bounce on a rebounder as one lady I know did. With dire results. Apparently. Aside from that, the pros for engaging with coffee in this manner […]

Yes Yes Yes! JUICING is Health Juicyness

Yes Yes Yes! JUICING is Health Juicyness

Green is the colour, but  football  isn’t  the  game,  juicing  greenage  is.  I,   Guinea-pig,  Chlorophyllium! I Love breakfast Juice and here is the recipe which I am still not tired of after 8 years – (natch, grass day in day out is the normal culinary fate of us Gps) 2  sticks  of  celery,  ginger  to […]

So Glad I’m Not Scared of Spiders.

So it’s been summer. Kind of. And the necessary discipline and application for sqweekly blog writing diminished somewhat. But the almost imperceptible waft of autumnal smell, and the glistening september webmastery of ‘aving it’ garden spiders heralds a renewed commitment – to the writing of this weekly blog, and a workable routine of health, study, and […]

The carrot or the stick?

      Can food really heal? For many people a cancer diagnosis is a massive wake up call for healthy eating. One of the most agreed upon tactics is to change your diet –  to eat vegetarian or better still – vegan food, and go organic. Exercise and meditation are also actively encouraged. What would you […]

Personal, Arbitary and Endemic

  In my hutch I have a Mr Benn mirror. It allows me to transform from Guinea-pig to Scribe without any accompanying music (sorry those of you did not receive Mr.Benn in your formative years, I’m sure you can find him on You tube). Today after completing this neat little trick, after a rather busy […]

The Motorschiff Stubnitz

I must let you all into a little secret… before I was a cancer guineapig I was, well, a guineapig. Hush! I was going to write this blog about food – a major wow factor in my life  – and a little guide to all the different confusing dietary advices out there for people in […]

Star sky and Hutch.

The hutch is rather empty at the moment. The two industrious and estimable rats who co-habit the hutch with me are both on cross continental meanderings, so I have been wallowing in my own smells and rodent free solitude. The hutch though had to randomly come alive of its own accord on the first night […]
