(image thanks to – this is an amazing website by a girl in the Philippines, thoroughly worth a visit.   Actually I am in love with her blog.)

I have never heard of Malunggay but it sounds like a keeper.  “Sajina” in the Indian Subcontinent, “Moringa” in English and Moringa oleifera for those who are that way inclined, appears to be an exceptionally nutritious vegetable tree whose leaves can be eaten in a similar way to spinach: “it contains seven times the Vitamin C in oranges, four times the Calcium in milk, four times the Vitamin A in carrots, two times the protein of yoghurt, three times the iron of spinach, and three times the Potassium in bananas.”

Have to work out how to get hands on it when not in Asia!  Will look into growing it.  Check back here for updates 🙂

Other reference:


"The part can never be well unless the whole is well … For this is the great error of our day in the treatment of the human body, that physicians separate the soul from the body."


If this interests you, I just finished reading a book called "Teach Us To Sit Still" by Tim Parks. An easy read by a sceptical Englishman who is forced to look at holistic healing through necessity.
