Two days ago on Facebook, I posted some photos showing my hair is growing much better on top. That post has got 64 responses so far. This post will get far less, but the health improvement I’m about to describe, although being far less pleasant to talk about, will have... Continue reading
Just look at the difference between how the hair on top of my head was growing 2 years ago and how it's growing now! Continue reading
After the transformation I went through 10 years ago through diet and supplementation (especially minerals), I took a look at what the Bible says about healing minerals. Here's what I found. Continue reading
I’ve now been using the light therapy patches for 4 months. Steady progress continues. Here’s a summary: Immediate effects 4 months ago: I immediately felt looser, my mood improved, and my energy increased. Three days after I started the patches, I could run for the first time in 12 years.... Continue reading
I just walked into the town centre and back. It was a momentous occasion, not because of where I went but because I left my walking stick at home. I've walked into town before carrying the stick rather than using it, but this is the first time I've actually left... Continue reading
When I watched this, I laughed and then I cried. I couldn't believe it was me I was watching. Ten years ago I could barely walk. Now I can bounce. I can't begin to comprehend the healing that has taken place in my legs, ankles, and feet to allow me... Continue reading
The most read article on this blog is Asclepius: The Spirit Behind Modern Medicine? When I wrote that article five years ago, I had spent a long time digging for obscure information on Asclepius and his influence on modern medicine. Nowadays, you don’t have to dig to find people discussing... Continue reading
I’ve done a lot of things to help my health. My diet is as good as I can make it. I drink lots of clean water. I do my best to avoid toxins and electromagnetic radiation. In Korea, I went to my natural dentists almost every week for three years... Continue reading
My health got off to a bad start when I was given a botched blood-change transfusion the day after I was born in 1959. My health deteriorated until, by the age of 53, I didn’t expect to have many days left on this earth. Then I went back to my... Continue reading
Like a lot of people, I grew up believing drugs and surgery were my only options for health. That started to change in 2009 when somebody sent me some lavender essential oil. I had even worse problems sleeping then than I have now. I inhaled the lavender oil and went... Continue reading
I’m feeling improvements all the time, but it’s often difficult to quantify them or demonstrate them. However, the extent to which I’m bending my knees here hasn’t been possible for well over a decade. It feels miraculous to me that my right knee (injured 52 years ago) and my left... Continue reading
This morning I listened to 2 Kings 4 and 5. In chapter 4, we have the woman facing poverty who has nothing but a pot of oil in her house. Elisha multiplies the oil to meet her financial needs. In chapter 5, we have Naaman the leper. Elisha tells him... Continue reading
I always listen to the Bible while I’m making my breakfast. This morning I listened to 2 Kings 1. When Ahaziah was sick, He didn’t ask God if he would live, he asked Baalzebub. As a result of enquiring of the wrong god, he died. Doctors are smart people, but... Continue reading
This blog is called Given Her to Eat. It comes from Mark 5:23 Mark 5:41-43 And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise. And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of... Continue reading
“Lord, please get me up the hill.” This used to be my prayer every evening on my way home after taking the bus from the Korean university where I taught English. I couldn’t sit down on the bus because if I did, I couldn’t stand up again. I had to... Continue reading
The Lord has taken the shackles off my feet so I can dance, and I'm going to praise him. Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance I just wanna praise you (What'cha wanna do?) I just wanna praise you (Yeah, yeah) You broke the chains now I... Continue reading
‘We are being frightened to death by microbes. It is germs, germs, germs everywhere. Must one give up shaking hands, kissing, eating, and drinking? With all the germs ever-present, it is a wonder that any of us are alive at all. Walter Hadwen (1853) Continue reading

Smartphones and English teaching. One day, I was sitting on the subway on the way to work, and I noticed a middle school boy approach his 2 friends on the platform. When he greeted them, they momentarily looked up from their cell phones, said hello, then looked down again. The... Continue reading

Reflections on teaching English to training students at a university in Korea. I’ve taught at 2 Korean universities, neither have been establishments prized for academic achievements. Most of my experience has been at a university most renowned for turning out taekwondo and judo champions. Korean universities are different from British... Continue reading

Reflections on teaching English at a Hagwon (after-school institute) in Korea. Over a decade ago, I taught English at a hagwon in Gyeongju for 5 years. Korean hagwons vary considerably. My experience may not match the next person’s. But here are some things that remain firmly embedded in my memory.... Continue reading

Reflections on teaching English to kindergartners in Korea. I taught kindergarten in Korea for 1 year. I’m really glad I did it for a year. I’m also really glad I didn’t do it for more than a year. It was a memory I cherish, but I’m not sure my sanity... Continue reading

These problems have been compounded by the former manner in which Korean was transliterated into English. Also, many English words are now used... Continue reading
