In the midst of the chaos of the Middle Ages and the Inquisitions, rose an astounding woman named Hildegard von Bingen – one of the most visionary and incredibly gifted spiritual women of the 12th Century – and of all time.
Hildegard was the founder of a Benedictine religious community; a teacher and preacher; a composer of music; a poet and artist; and herbalist and pharmacist, and a sensitive recipient of God-sent visions with insights about the Bible and the natural world.
At a very early age, she experienced visions from God and wrote extensively about her visions – and also about botanicals and medicinals.
Sister Hildegard was cutting edge, essentially launching the holistic health craze in Europe, with her world renown book, “Holistic Healing” – an alternative medicine anthology.
She was the female Hippocrates of herbal health care and became best known for her healing powers, involving practical application of tinctures, herbs and plants.
Her philosophy became, “All things put on earth are for the use of humans.”
Hildegard was one tough sister with fabulous skin, yet for 800 years her ministry and the magnificent sweep of her abilities went largely unnoticed.
Today, we introduce you to her skin salvation secrets.

“it’s a smile, it’s a kiss, it’s a sip of wine … it’s summertime!” – Kenny Chesney
It’s officially SUMMER! Time for barbeques, beach vacations and yard work.
Time to sit on the porch with family and friends with a glass of ice-cold lemonade and enjoy life.
It’s also the most important time of the year to protect your skin from sun damage, dry heat and air conditioning that dehydrates and ages the skin.
Many years ago, when I was vacationing in Germany and biking through the countryside with some dear friends, I heard the story of a very famous 12th century nun by the name of Sister Hildegard von Bingen.
Sister Hildegard possessed amazing powers of divining cures for disease using healing herbs and plants found in the gardens of the nunnery – which is still there! She attributed her intimate revelationship to God for the answers to her prayers and resulting healing revelations.

One of the most famous tales in all of Chinese Medicine is that of a master herbalist, healer and mountain man, Li Ching Yun (Li Ching-Yuen) who lived an amazingly long life to 253 years of age.
What was his secret? Very simple, Li Ching Yun had discovered and mastered the rare art of “Adaptogenic Medicine”, using herbal compounds, healing foods and strenuous exercise each day.
The core of his success was the use of profound herbal compounds; in particular, wild crafted Ginseng, to trigger this action of “Adaptogenisis” in the body.
The Body as Doctor
What this means is that the body, when given the right elements from Nature, can literally change itself like a chameleon to adjust to the rigors of life and disease. This in turn means that the body overcomes the imbalances, the disease elements, and stays in control of itself, healthy and vigorous both physically and mentally as well as spiritually.

While studying in Shanghai, I heard innumerable stories about a famous herbalist and Taoist Master Healer called “Li Chung Yun” who lived to 252 years of age.
Were these stories true?
I am sure they were, at least in part, because they had birth records to prove his amazing existence. Most of all, he was famous for drinking and eating his mountain-grown wild Ginseng every day.
