Returning to Our Natural Resonance
The FAB Approach to Health
by Paulette Agnew
My FAB Health book exposes a successful new emerging healing paradigm using Frequency and Bioenergy (FAB) devices and practices. For too long, general science has led us to believe that our bodies and our environment are just bundles of molecules and that when this biochemical mix becomes sick, it has nothing to do with us. The reality is, we are living in a sea of energy, light and interconnected consciousness, emitted and absorbed by all things. The future of our world and our own wellness lies directly at our doorstep.
The FAB Health book came about due to my experience with chronic Lyme disease. Ten years of misdiagnosis and debilitating symptoms had brought me to my knees. Cardiac problems, semi paralysis, memory loss, chronic fatigue, arthritis, hair loss, insomnia, depression … the list was endless. A barrage of pharmaceutical antibiotic drugs is the normal approach, but research reveals that many of the thousands of people who are given this treatment never fully recover. Instead, FAB medicine rebuilt my battered body, initiating a deep desire to find out why it works and share it with all of you!
So what can we do to stay healthy?
Light is key. Biophotons emit both information and energy. Molecules and cells require both to function and we get this from being outside in natural daylight. Modern comfort-based lifestyles are a trap. Living inside at work, school, shopping malls, and even transport reduces our time in nature, where we should be absorbing those vital photons.
Get grounded. Throw off those shoes, feel the earth beneath your feet as often as possible, and a stream of electrons will flow up through and into the connective tissue. We need abundant electrons to fight free radicals and transport energy throughout the body.
Hydrate. Alkalised water, such as Kangen water, helps the body to fight off acidity caused by stress. Get a water device for your home. By drinking enough water, (not beer, tea or cola) the cells can flush out toxins which impair normal healthy cell function.
Detox, detox, detox! The body is like a spaceship, full of trillions of individual cells. Each one requires good nutrition in and waste out. Exercise, fasting, correct diet and saunas are just a few of the simple, fun and inexpensive ways to help yourself.
Last but not least, electromagnetic smog, from mobile phones, masts, computers, WiFi, 4G, 5G, etc, are all propelling unnatural frequencies into our cells, disturbing our healthy frequencies and correct cellular communication. It is now essential to protect yourself and your home/workplace from those things that disrupt our natural bioenergetic pathways. One company called Bioprotective Systems have gadgets that can be attached to phones, modems etc. I personally use the BICOM bioresonance device for diagnosis and treatment with my clients. I also use the CoRe Inergetix to run a full health scan on my non-local international clients.
Welcome to a new world of healing – yet the oldest on the planet – where you are not a victim of illness, but a co-creator in your recovery and personal awakening journey.
Paulette’s Tips for a Healthy Life
•Walk barefoot in nature – allow the Earth to nourish you
•Drink alkalised water – Kangen water is a good example of this
•Exercise regularly – yoga, Chi Gong or walking are all powerful forms of exercise you can try
•Protect yourself from harmful electromagnetic frequencies with bioprotective devices
•Eat nutritious, organic food
•Use natural skin products to reduce the body’s chemical load

Kim Lee’s holistic journey began in the 1990s with the birth of her youngest son. He spent the first few years of his life constantly ill, depleted, and on antibiotics. Deciding there must be a better way to help him, Kim began researching alternatives. Her wake up call came when she stumbled across a book by Harvey Diamond, which explained how certain foods create an inflammatory response in the body. Through trial and error, she discovered that her baby suffered from dairy intolerance. Her son’s dramatic transformation from ill health to vitality was enough evidence for Kim to begin her studies in the field of nutrition and health.
Currently a master medical herbalist with a background in nutrition and living foods, Kim practices from her own health food store, Nature’s Cure, in Skerries. She believes that setting up in Skerries was so easy, it was meant to be, and is grateful for the incredible loyalty of her customers. Her core philosophy is simple: “Let your body do the talking, as no one knows how you feel better than you.” Kim has noticed that in the last five years, Irish people have become more and more conscious of their health, and are beginning to embrace healthy choices that work for them. She maintains that good health is about listening to your body and taking control of how you feel by putting balance back into your life, through a holistic approach.
Spring Issue 2017 Positively Practical: Traditional Crafts
By Nick Clayson
Today, I am heading out to the shed to make a wooden bowl for eating out of. I have a large beech log liberated from Coole Park after the storms last year. Lady Gregory would have approved. It has been resting and I am hoping the fungal growth on the end of the log will have left the timber spalted, i.e., marked with black flecks, but not too soft to work. The wood will still be green (unseasoned). This is essential for working with a foot-powered pole lathe. I am growing to love working in this way. What began as learning to use a traditional and ancient tool has become a small but significant journey within. I was fortunate to spend a most enjoyable two days with Sharif Adams at the Steward Wood Community project. I learned how to roughly shape a bowl using an axe and mount it on the lathe.
Then to learn the tricky bit of how to get the long hook tools to cut. Sharif is a very skilled and patient teacher. At the end of my time there, I had a grasp of the basics. However, practising a new skill with expert guidance is very different from doing it on your own once you return home. My first bowl took me around eight hours and literally blood, sweat and tears. Think of it like learning to ride a bike, all the parts have to be there together or you have nothing. Like riding a bike, once you have it you have it and it is great, you forget about the painful phase of learning to pedal, balance, steer and look out where you’re going all at once.
There is a gentle rhythm to the pole lathe, pushing the treadle up and down with one leg. The tools are long and crook under your arm. It is a soothing process once you get the hang of it. Thin shavings of wood fly off and there is a wonderful scrunchy sound to accompany each cut.
The lathe I have made is a combination of scrap timber and a headstock hewn from a beech log. In the workshop I don’t have room for a six-metre birch pole so I have improvised a return spring using one of the many worn out bicycle inner tubes that I own. Each bowl takes on a life of its own. Ash is fibrous and teaches you how to keep tools sharp. Birch cuts and shapes easily. The beech log I’m working with today is beautiful and, although hard work, I am enjoying every second. The air is cold and the bowl spins in clouds of steam from my breath.
There is no need for cumbersome protective equipment. No ear-muffs, no gloves, no special boots, no glasses, no dust masks or any other health and safety paraphernalia to separate us from the world. I can hear birdsong and hold conversations (with myself) while working. Sights, sounds, scents, tastes, feeling it is very much a whole body practice. It makes me aware of how separate from the world our lives have become because all of these things should be very ordinary and a part of the every day, but for most of us, most of the time, they are not.
