“Perfect [Human] Food”

Scott Joseph

Since "diet-related” illnesses and diseases make up approximately 95% of all health issues... we could prevent and cure virtually all known sicknesses that affect the entire human race - if we simply ate the correct diet.

And since animals in nature don’t develop “diet-related” illnesses and diseases such as, Heart Attacks, Cancers, Strokes, Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Mental Illnesses, as well as, Obesity and hundreds of other “diet-related” illnesses and diseases that humans develop… is it because we have walked away from our original, natural diet, and they’re still instinctively eating the diet that was specifically designed for their species?

Then if so… according to our closest living relatives, Chimps, who are still 99% genetically and biologically like humans, but like all other living creatures, they virtually never get sick... does their (our) natural diet of Fruits, Veggies, Nuts and Seeds hold the answer to preventing and possibly curing virtually all sicknesses that affect us?

The Secret Language of The Playing Cards

Karyn Chabot

“Oh, the wonderful knowledge to be found in the stars. Even the smallest things are written there…if you had but the skill to read.” - Ben Franklin.

Discover the secret language of the deck of playing cards. Based on the mathematics of a birthday, the astrological language of the
playing cards can reveal the mysteries and complexities of past relationships; predict windows of future romance, when money will come easy, when new jobs may unfold or end and illuminate our deepest soul purpose. Karyn helps students and clients stay in the moment while understanding and forgiving the past. Each birthday contains a specific vibration or solar value which gives rise to unique tendencies, patterns, events, and personalities. The Sanskrit language has one word that describes such a theory: Vidya. Its translation is the merge of science, art and magic. Ponder this: 52 cards in a deck = 52 weeks of each year. 4 suits = 4 seasons. 12 months = 12 court cards. 13 annual lunar cycles = 13 cards within each suit. When we add up the solar values of all the cards, we get exactly 365 1/4; the same amount of days inside one year. The joker is involved with the 1/4. The deck of cards is actually a mystical calendar. When we learn to navigate the unconscious realms--before it manifests--while recognizing the divine messages that surround us in the present moment---we can truly find peace of mind and be a lighthouse for the world. All we have is now. Schedule a private
session with her on, phone or in person.


“The greatest minds in history understood the secrets of mathematics.”- Albert Einstein.

  • What is Marconics​?
