10 Strategies for Discovering
and Living as Your True Self

If you find yourself continuing to act out old patterns and roles that no longer serve you, this is more than likely interfering with your ability to create mutually rewarding, respectful, and reciprocal relationships. Below are my ten strategies for getting in touch with your true self so as to create an integrity-based and emotionally rewarding life.

The True Self Lost in Childhood

Although living as one’s true self in an emotionally honest manner might seem like a natural and easy thing to do, those of us who grew up in a family system that did not support our uninhibited and natural expressions may have gradually disconnected from the truth of who we were, i.e., our core essence, so as to be accepted by those we were dependent upon to meet our most basic and fundamental needs.

It is often the case that children who grew up in these types of chaotic, unstable environments find some semblance of identity and emotional security by taking on one or more family roles, such as the hero, the scapegoat, the rebel, the caretaker, or the clown. But in unconsciously disconnecting from our true self in order to emotionally survive, we may later find ourselves as adults people-pleasing others and hiding behind a facade, with no idea how to express and live our truth.

How to Live and Speak Your Truth

If I were to ask you right now, “In what situations, or around which people, do you feel most yourself, and most creative, spontaneous, and alive?”, how might you respond? Alternatively, if I were to ask you, “In what situations, or around which people, do you feel uncomfortable, restrained, and inhibited?,” how might you reply? Contemplating these questions can be provocative, to say the least, and there may be no obvious or easy answers at first.

If you feel ready to shed anything about yourself that feels false and fearlessly live from a place of emotional honesty, personal integrity (inspired by your principles and values), and a direct knowledge of self, the 10 strategies I designed to assist my psychotherapy and coaching clients will aid you in this courageous quest. If you are not already seeing a competent therapist, counselor, or coach who can support you in your efforts, you might consider engaging such services before implementing the strategies listed below.

10 Strategies for Discovering and Being Your True Self

  1. Recognize You Have a True Self Nature: Each of us enters the world possessing an innate, core, true self. Each one of us is an “original model”, and as such we all have unique gifts to offer to the world.
    .
  2. Remember and Reflect on When You Felt Happiest as a Child: Think back to when you were young. When did you feel most free, happy, and alive? Take a few minutes after reflecting on what caused you to feel joyful in your youth, going back to your earliest conscious memory. Then write about the people, places, things, and activities that brought you the greatest joy while you were growing up. This simple “remembering and reflection” exercise can put us deeply in touch with the innocent purity of our original true self nature.

  3. Make a Commitment to Recover and Reconnect with the Joyful, Innately Pure, Authentic Essence Within: In a certain sense, recognizing and consciously reclaiming our own unique, true self nature is a paradoxical process of finding and embracing what we never really lost. It is an excavation project, of sorts, i.e., it is a process of uncovering, discovering, recovering, and consciously reclaiming who (and what) we in fact have always been, and will always be — That which is most true, honest, expansive, and alive within ourselves, yet constant and unchanging.

  4. Make a Decision to Release All that Feels False and No Longer Serves You: Becoming authentic and emotionally honest requires that we be willing to release the parts of ourselves that we were conditioned to become by the various social systems we have been immersed in like a fish swimming in the sea, from our family-of-origin to the cultural and social systems we currently identify with, and everything in between. Ask yourself if you feel ready to begin doing that. If not, I encourage you to explore what might be inhibiting you from living an emotionally honest and authentic life. Change is never easy. It’s never too late to “get real”.

  5. The Process Of Letting Go: I often ask my clients who are engaged in a process of true self recovery and reclamation, “Is this (person, place, thing, behavior, situation) serving you at the highest level today?” Whatever is not serving us at the highest level is more than likely not serving others in our life at the highest level either, regardless of how it may seem. It ultimately serves no one when we allow ourselves to remain small, diminish our internal light, and hide our truth from others (and perhaps even from ourselves.)

  6. The Only Way Out Is Through: It is often during this process of letting go of all that now feels false that long-buried emotions unconsciously repressed in childhood may surface, resulting in our possibly becoming sad, anxious, angry, and even genuinely depressed. At times such as this it is imperative that a person feels he or she is not alone in the valiant task of facing any painful feelings and memories that may arise head on, versus avoiding the challenging, difficult work of genuine transformational growth; therefore, this is a time when the help of a trusted therapist, counselor, transformational life coach, and/or a psychoeducational peer-support group can prove to be invaluable to a person engaged in the task of reclaiming and authentically embodying his or her true self.

  7. It’s Okay to Experience and Release Old, Pent-Up Feelings from Childhood: It is also not uncommon for a person whose true self nature was shamed and dismissed in childhood to find they are experiencing feelings of intense anger, even rage, during this critical transformational time of inner self-exploration and excavation. This can especially surprise those who strived to be “nice” their entire lives to avoid upsetting others and risking conflict. I like to remind my clients during such times that the word “courage” includes the word “rage”, and successful passage through the dark night of the soul is ultimately brought about by processing these more difficult feelings and emotions that society labels as “negative”. Those who were victims of neglect and/or other forms of abuse in childhood are especially prone to finding themselves overwhelmed with these darker, extremely intense feelings; thus, working with a licensed psychotherapeutic professional and/or abuse recovery network such as Adult Survivors of Child Abuse can be especially critical during this phase of recovery, healing, and growth.

  8. Pay Attention To Your Dreams: I have also learned from both personal and professional experience that this is a time to pay attention to one’s active imagination, dreams, and fantasies, as suggested by the great Swiss psychologist Carl Jung, for these signs and symbols emanating from deep within our unconscious invariably reveal important keys to a given individual’s growth, including acting as an inner wise guide, when one understands how to begin to interpret the personal and universal symbols contained therein. A book that I often recommend to clients for such creative dream work is Jeremy Taylor’s Dream Work: Techniques for Discovering the Creative Power in Dreams.

  9. Release The Limiting Views Of Others: This is also a time when a person might report to their therapist, transformational life coach, or support network that they are feeling increasingly uncomfortable around family members, colleagues, and friends if those relationships were dependent on their being a certain way – A way that now no longer feels authentic, embodied, or emotionally true. This is especially the case when one has knowingly or unknowingly been playing out a particular role within a given relationship and/or system (e.g., hero, rescuer, ‘black sheep’, enabler) and/or been an unwitting recipient of another’s psychological projections (a process whereby humans defend themselves against their own unpleasant impulses by denying their existence while attributing them to others). At some point you may have no choice other than to make it clear that you are no longer willing to distort or hide your true self in order to protect the feelings of others, and that you simply will not accept being manipulated into living out old, familiar role(s) in the dysfunctional system’s “script” (typically one’s family-of-origin) so that the status quo can be maintained.

  10. You’re Not Obligated To Play By Other People’s Rules: If it wasn’t clear before, once you commit to live your life authentically it will quickly become evident that every system has its “rules”, be it a family system, a work system, a political system, etc. This is a good time to remember that whatever the system can’t change, control, and/or accept, it will attempt to diminish, label, reject, and even (in extreme cases) “eject”. And this is why I see each and every person who is engaged in a sincere process of true self recovery and reclamation as being heroic, for it is no easy task to realize the truth of who and what one is while attempting to maintain relationships with others who may be demanding we “change back” (whether overtly or covertly) so that they might feel more comfortable, in control, and secure.
    .

Living as Your True Self

As illustrated in the above 10 strategies, remaining committed to an ongoing transformational process designed to further our personal and professional growth, enhance our relationships, and increase our overall sense of confidence and well being is not always a simple or enjoyable task, especially in the beginning. And yet, those who decide to do what it takes to live from a place of emotional integrity and fearless honesty invariably discover that it is worth the effort required, for it is by courageously committing to recovering the lost Child within that we are able to become the true self we were always destined to be. And what could be better than that?

Dream Psychology

     One item that Carl Jung felt was a window into our subconscious and that could be used in analytical processes was the dream and dream psychology.

     Dreams are a representation in the sensory environments of our mind. They reflect thoughts, feelings and awareness. They reflect our everyday lives in that they are expressing what has been occupying our minds in the day or two prior to the dream. One way a dream can be interpreted is by looking at how it relates to recent events in our life. Dreams occur naturally during a sleep phase known as REM sleep. REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep occurs about every ninety minutes through out the night. These REM periods get progressively longer throughout the night, starting out about 5 – 10 minutes each at the beginning of the night – up until about 30-40 minutes by morning. In total – people dream about 100 minutes per night.

     People dream in order to help the brain grow by exciting neurons. This explains why all people and creatures dream, and babies dream up to about 8 hours per day. Researchers also believe that dreams play a role in memory- they strengthen connections between certain areas of the brain and allow other connections that hold less useful information to be released and forgotten. REM sleep also plays a role in releasing certain hormones in the brain and it has been found that reduced REM sleep seems to reduce depression.

     Recurring dreams reflect feelings and awareness that have not been successfully resolved in our waking lives. Unresolved feelings often include the sudden loss of a Loved one, or an abrupt end to a romantic relationship. We wish the situation could have ended differently, so we tend to replay it in our minds.

Stay In Your Lane

“We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses.”
Carl Jung

It’s a given, we want to control the irrepressible parts of our life, believing we will attain happiness then.

I liken the thought to catching fireflies at night, certain you have caught them all. It is only later you realize there are more around and so you concede defeat.

I wish to emphasizes one important key principle in this article. The rest is details:

Happiness = Accepting what is and letting go of what you cannot control.

It sounds simple right?

Then why aren’t we happy?

Because what looks easy is often difficult to apply in real life. We want happiness to fill a void in our lives, but we don’t want the struggle and difficulties that go with it. Yet the pain and struggle serve as a reminder to stop influencing circumstances beyond our control.

I often remind others to stay in your lane. Meaning, you have no business poking around in matters outside your control because life is bigger than you and will impose itself upon you each time. It has many millennia of experience and a toolbox of tricks, compared to your humble few decades of life.

“If you believe the outer circumstance is yoked inevitably to your story about it, then you will surely be at the mercy of whatever is going on in your life,” explains author Jan Frazier in The Freedom of Being: At Ease with What Is.

I’ve researched countless books on happiness over the past decade, including attending seminars by respected psychologists and concede that happiness is much simpler than we think. Whilst I do not discount their tireless work and research, I am of the opinion happiness is accessible once our thoughts are in harmony.

It is our thinking that gets in the way of achieving happiness, not having a bank account full of money, fancy cars or luxury homes. Whilst these are good things to have, they wear off after a while and are meaningless if you cannot find peace and contentment within.

The Meaning You Give Your Experiences

“We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.”
Joseph Campbell

Man is responsible for his problems because he creates them through his thoughts. Nothing outside you has meaning save for the meaning you give it. Your brain assigns meaning to life’s events to make sense of what takes place.

Tony Robbins says: “Meaning equals emotion and emotion equals life. The meaning you give your experiences will always change how you feel — and the emotion you feel always becomes the quality of your life.”

Yet the meaning you give can be inaccurate if viewed through a distorted lens. For example, if you’ve been cheated on in a relationship, the meaning you ascribe to future relationships will be based on a lack of trust. This is neither right nor wrong, but one aspect of the picture.

Robbins says: “Are your patterns helping or harming you? It’s vital to remember that our perceptions are creative in nature — if we define something as negative, that’s the message our brain receives and responds to by creating an emotional state to reinforce that reality.”

This is an ideal point to reinforce the main point of this article. Your happiness lies in re-framing events to accept what is and let go of what you cannot control.

Psychotherapist David Richo writes in The Five Things We Cannot Change: And the Happiness We Find by Embracing Them: “We can learn to accept life on its own terms. We can even find its terms satisfactory. We do not have to shake our fist at Heaven. We do not have to demand an exemption or take refuge in a belief system that muffles the wallop of the givens by promising a paradise without them. We can craft a sane and authentic life by saying yes to life just as it is. Indeed, our path is “what is.

Referring to our earlier example where your trust was squandered through infidelity, the lesson gained is that you are likely to choose a trustworthy partner in your next relationship, given its relationship to your happiness. Contrast helps to shed light on what you value most and will be important to you.

To further emphasise the point, you accepted your previous partner’s transgression, noting you may have played a role in co-creating an unbalanced union. Note, I am not implying you consented to the unfaithfulness, however as a complying party you are still responsible for the events that took place.

Therefore, your lesson is to accept the dissolution of the relationship and release all judgement, anger and hate by healing and forgiving yourself and your former partner.

Learn From The Experience

“Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable, and remove yourself from the unacceptable.”
Denis Waitley

To continue harboring anger and resentment ties you to the other person and does little to help you heal. In fact, you are likely to bring the toxic emotions into the next relationship, repeating the damage of the past and labeling future relationships as toxic.

Robbins reaffirms the need to re-frame how we interpret life’s events: “Re framing is the difference between being constantly disappointed and being consistently satisfied.”

Amid the backdrop of acceptance is the invitation to let go of what you cannot control.

In this example, you cannot control other people’s actions.

You cannot control whether they will return your love.

You cannot control if they will be faithful to you.

However, you can control your response to what happens.

You can control the meaning you give to the event.

You can control the lessons gained from the experience and carry them into the next relationship.

You can control whether you remain a victim or an ambassador for inner peace and harmony. These are powerful lessons, yet we ruminate on what went wrong in the past rather than how to carry the lessons forward.

George Bernard Shaw wrote: “We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future.”

I’m not saying it is easy and it may take years to achieve. It is a more worthwhile path than being a victim to your circumstances.

Dr Alex Lickerman says in The Undefeated Mind: On the Science of Constructing an Indestructible Self: “Approaching painful internal experiences with an attitude of acceptance, in contrast — accepting that sometimes we’re weak — paradoxically may be the key to our becoming strong.”

It is a given whilst we cannot control the circumstances of life, we can control how we respond to what happens to us.

This is a measure of our commitment to accept life as it is and let go of what we cannot control.

Dedicated to my very dear friend,
Dr. Nelson F. Eichman
.
How do you put into words how you feel
for the man you most admire in this world.

A Man for All Seasons,
An Inspiration and a wonderful, trusted Friend.
On his Sacred Mission
To Help Us, One and All,
He truly Succeeded.
Your Life Is such a Beautiful Blessing
To everyone.

We Love you
and

Thank You.

sunset

            We cannot imagine as dreams come true.

We are not
Who we seem to be,
We,
Reflections of
Sacred Geometry.

sunset 4

                    Extraordinary, the creation of man

Loved into being,
God whispered your name.
Breath of Life
Loving thought,
Tender deed,
Were you created,
Became.

Extraordinary,
The creation of man.
From the dust of the ground
A living, breathing being,
A Soul,
Loving and Loved,
A Child of God,
A Man.
(Genesis 2:7)

sunset 10

The Heart Divine no longer remembers, set free from deep regrets.

God Blesses each of us,
As He Dreams away our lives.
And Forever is a day,
As it is Given,
We are born again,
Me and you,
Into the next life,
Such that we cannot imagine
As dreams come true.

Forever In the Bright Morning Light Of God’s Eternal Love.

While you dream,
You know not
That you are Dreaming.
And awake,
May be living a Dream.

sunset 12

                      We are not who we seem to be.

We sculpt the future
With our imagination,
What we perceive to be.
And by our transgressions,
Forget that I am me.

In the act of forgiving
The mind is Blessed,
As it forgets.
The Heart Divine
No longer remembers,
Set free from deep regrets.

sunset 8

           We sculpt the future with our imagination.

The Love of God
Is like a raging
River of Light,
Carrying Salvation
Into the dark
Pit of Night.

sunset 14

           Loving and Loved, a Child of God, a Man.

So this life, this Dream,
From which we awake one day,
Will find us forgiven,
Should we ask to be,
And forever
In the Bright Morning Light
Of God’s Eternal Love.

And breathless will we be,
In Love
With Love,
Eternally.

Goodnight.

What is the Meaning of Life?
by Australian Biologist Jeremy Griffith
read more

Science has finally enabled us
to lift the so-called ‘burden of guilt’ from the Human race;
in fact, to understand that we thinking,
‘knowledge’ – finding, conscious Humans
are actually nothing less than
the Heroes of the Story of Life on Earth!

This is because our fully conscious mind is surely
Nature’s greatest invention
and to have had to endure the torture of being
unjustly condemned as evil for so long
(the anthropological evidence indicates we humans have been fully conscious for some two million years)
must make us the absolute Heroes of the Story of Life on Earth.

Finally,
God and man, Religion and science, our instinct and intellect,
the integrative meaning of life
and the inconsistency of our behavior with that meaning,
are all reconciled.

This explanation of the Human condition is redeeming
and thus rehabilitating,
all our upset angry, egocentric and alienated behavior
now subsides, bringing about the complete
TRANSFORMATION OF THE HUMAN RACE
and importantly, understanding of the Human condition
doesn’t condone ‘bad’ behavior,
it heals
and by so doing ends it.

From being competitive, selfish and aggressive,
Humans return to being cooperative, selfless and
Loving.

Our round of departure has ended.
The poet T.S. Eliot wonderfully articulated
our species’ journey
from an original innocent, yet ignorant, state,
to a psychologically upset ‘fallen’, corrupted state,
and back to an uncorrupted, but this time enlightened,
state when he wrote:

‘We shall not cease from exploration
and the end of all our exploring
will be to arrive where we started
and know the place for the first time.”

Little Gidding, 1942

Finding the exonerating, redeeming understanding of our dark, psychologically upset, meaning of life-defying, Human-condition-afflicted existence finally enables the Human race
to be healed
and thus TRANSFORMED
it makes us ‘whole’ again, as Carl Jung said it would.

To quote Professor Harry Prosen,
a former president of the Canadian Psychiatric Association,
on this dreamed-of,
greatest of all breakthroughs in science:

‘I have no doubt this Biological explanation
of the Human condition
is the Holy Grail of insight
we have sought for the psychological rehabilitation
of the Human race’
(FREEDOM, 2016, Introduction)

          Trip the Light Fantastic

We are beings of a Human dimension
and of many levels of awareness,
some known
and some unknowable.
And in our travels to gain Wisdom,
the tenuity of our being
may encounter
a healing awareness.

The journey
from tragedy
to Hope
can be the distance
between one beat of your Heart
and the next.

Yes,
somewhere in time,
which is this moment,
now
and forever,
we may receive
a Gift of Divinity,
one that imparts
the awareness
of God’s Healing
Love.

What if
you trip the Light Fantastic
and awoke one morning
to realize the Infinite Love
inside of you
waiting to be discovered?

a_009

Our shadows are cast long and deep.

Such Exquisite Love,
My Dear Friends,
exists.
It may be
the only thing
that truly does exist.
And it is a reflection
of what is alive
and dwells deeply
within an Infinite Reality.

“Love Gandhi-11
is the only reality
and it is not
a mere sentiment.
It is the Ultimate Truth
that lies at the
Heart of Creation.”
– Mohandas Gandhi

We perceive ourselves
reflected in the mirror
of what we do, where we are,
what we believe.

But our shadows
are cast long and deep
in the direction
of what has been,
not what will be.

chuck Palahniuk 2“Maybe
the only thing

each of us can see
is our own shadow.”
– Chuck Palahniuk

My Friends,
in attempting to comprehend
what is incomprehensible,
we can act to enable
a new birth of freedom
and explore the unknown
and the unknowable,
working together
in unison with the Lord.
The Void
beyond our awareness,
may be Lovingly filled
by our Collective Conscience.

“I want to fly with you
across the sunrise,

discover what begins
each shining day”.

– Jeffrey Bullock

The Majesty and Mystery of our being.

We may relate to each other,
one fragile Human to another,
and to the Majesty and the Mystery
of our being
on a Harmonic scale.
And this Harmony,
this Chorus of beautiful Song,
will take us down
a Spiritual Path
which evolves into
unified movement,
and pure Loving energy.

Your journey in Life
can be with none
but yourself,
only and very lonely.
Or made with unbridled Joy,
in a new era
where Life has just begun,
walking hand in hand
with the Lord.

a_136

Our shadows are cast long and deep.

Such Joy
as we may come to know
is mirrored in
our laughter in Life.
We can become so excited,
so unfettered with pure exaltation,
that we find we cannot deny
each new day
ends in a beautiful dream
filled with anticipation and Hope,
instead of a sigh.

red sun b

With none but yourself.

Something
happens as we grow older.
Our experience with others
not content with Life,
those filled with unreal
and unrealized expectations,
make us think at some point
that it is not correct to react
in pure delight.
We temper Joy with reserve,
hesitation, caution.
And our joy is suppressed, strangled, smothered –
the unspeakable Joy that
God wants for you.

a_126

    Life itself has NO rules.

Your child
is the greatest teacher
you will ever know.

Through the eyes of your child
you can learn to laugh with abandon,
sparkle with delight,
sing along with Heaven,
come to see
the Light.

alone b

Only and very lonely.

Jesus gives us
in a moment of pure Insight,
a remarkable Revelation:
be more like them.

“Except ye be converted,
and become as little children,
ye shall NOT enter into
the Kingdom of Heaven.

Whosoever therefore shall humble himself
as this little child,
the same is greatest in the
Kingdom of Heaven.” 

– Matthew 18:3-4

a_014

          Down a Spiritual Path.

We are drawn
down an ever evolving,
more and more serious
pathway:
a dangerous highway,
pot marked and pitted and filled
with memories
of moments in misery.
But these came about
because we did not comprehend
that:

“Life itself has NO rules.
That is its mystery
and its unknown law.

What you call knowledge
is an attempt to impose something
comprehensible on life.”
   – Carl Jung

We impose our reality optical illusion c
upon a World
we do not really know,
that may not exist
as we think,
or may not
exist at all.

But in the throes
of Life’s incomprehensibility,
its lawlessness and strange meandering,
your child
can offer Hope,
can take you back
to your source,
where you began,
where once you felt
truly Loved,
at home.

denver“Just when it feels like
its hopeless

And Ill never make it alone,
I hear the voices of angels
Tenderly calling me home.

Home,
come on home

Ye who are weary come home.
Softly and tenderly calling
Home, come on home.”
– John Denver

flower

The Flower of childhood

In the arms
of your child
you are also held
by others:
the Father who cared for you,
sustained you,
the Loving Mother,
with such abundant,
unconditional Love,
and the Heavenly Father
you came from,
not through.
Here
is Family.
Here is the future foretold,
of longing to be,
of belonging,
of Loving to behold.

flower

The Flower
of childhood
shatters the cold stone
Hearts
left out in the wind.

We all Love deeply,
yet so few of us
are Blessed
with knowing we are
deeply Loved.

If we could know this
but in Life,
and not wait
until the day of our death,
know in this day,
and not in the misery
of moments remembered
fraught with deep regret,
not in the morrow
of Suns
that will never rise again,
never set.

sun

           The morrow of Suns.

Such Wisdom
may be found
between the pages
of a beautiful Book,
the Holy Bible,
written for all the
Children of God,
born of the Spirit
and of a very deep,
abiding Love
to ever and forever
keep.

Far beyond
what we may ever
comprehend,
is a Love
that is a many, many
Splendored Thing,
that exists
in every Song to Sing,
to extend and blend,
to receive and send,
heal and mend.

a_064

       Your journey in Life

I am wondering
if the people who have never
put their hopes and dreams,
their time and other things,
into the precious Life
of another without Hope,
without Love,
will see Life dissolve
before their eyes
with little or no Hope,
never having known
the Truth –
that
Life is Love,
that the truly homeless
are not only those without
a place to live,
they are those without
someone to Love.

Goodnight.

More than 600,000 Americans are homeless
on a given night,
according to the latest government data.
Nearly a quarter are

From our friends at the Underground Health Reporter:

Can Saffron Prevent Age-Related Vision Loss?

Saffron

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) afflicts 2% of Americans between 50 and 60, and 30% of Americans over the age of 75. According to the National Eye Institute, AMD is the principal cause of irreversible blindness in Americans.

Research has shown that certain plant carotenoids – antioxidant pigments that give fruits and vegetables their colors – can help keep early-stage macular degeneration from progressing, but until recently scientists have been unable to develop a targeted strategy to defend against “normal” loss of visual acuity that occurs with aging. Supplementing with saffron may hold the key.

The first study tested 20 mg of saffron against a placebo. After three months of supplementing with saffron, patients showed an average increase of 1 full line on the eye vision chart, measured at a 20-foot distance. So, an AMD patient with 20/40 vision now had 20/30 vision!

Scientists followed up with a second study that replicated testing circumstances but lasted for 14 months instead of just 3 months. This time, sensitivity to light improved for the entire duration of the study when patients supplemented with saffron, and visual acuity jumped 2 full lines on the Snellen vision chart!

A third study published in the Journal of Translational Medicine confirmed saffron’s vision-enhancing benefits.

Saffron is an extremely nutrient-dense spice that contains manganese, vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, iron, and vitamin B6. Health experts link saffron with cancer prevention, energy enhancement, immune strengthening, asthma relief, depression treatment, Alzheimer’s protection, and menstrual cramp relief.

Experts say that you can double saffron’s benefits by combining it with the vision-boosting nutrients alpha-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, astaxanthin, and cyaniding-3-glucoside.   read more
