By Matthew Fellows

Psilocybin and the Awakening Earth I’m not entirely sure if Boris Johnson reads the Oracle but it may just be possible that he’s taken note of a light-hearted article that I wrote a while ago about magic mushrooms.

“Ive got Sunshine… in a Bag”

By Matthew Fellows

‘I’ve Got Sunshine… in a Bag’ It’s a strange notion that here in the West, medical professionals often see vitamin supplements as a heresy and ‘woo woo’ of the absolute worst kind. We are told that all of our dietary requirements can be met by a balanced diet and that extra vitamins are at best …

By Matthew Fellows

Putting the ‘C’ in Covid Most animals are able to produce vitamin C within their bodies, naturally transforming glucose into ascorbate and ascorbic acid.
