Puremedy With Young Love After 50


Ruth L.Brandt with Marva Greenleaf share Puremedy bio-ceuticals with an audience of over 7,500 viewers from the Whole Wheatery in Lancaster, Ca.

peace growth Our History Copyright © Puremedy, LLC, 2007-2012. All rights reserved. Purémedy, LLC has been around for a few years, but our secret formula has existed far longer. Joseph Piquette, the owner’s great grandfather, taught the family how to craft the healing salve a hundred and fifty years ago after a nearly fatal leg infection and third degree burn was miraculously healed by using it. Purémedy has since created 17 products, each tailored to treat skin conditions both gently and naturally. The ingredients are pure enough to eat, as owner Joan Siegel


has (on more than one occasion) demonstrated, choosing 100% organic or wild-crafted, food grade ingredients for her specialty salves. 10% of the profits are tithed to organizations that promote healing for the planet. The testimonials are incredible and the line has quickly gained a loyal following in many stores, clinics and doctors offices all around the country.

WATCH: It’s Time to Clear Your Fear of Success

I was told years ago that fear of failure isn’t really what stops most folks — it’s the fear of success… and I’ve come to believe that. Sure, we tend to be more aware of our fear of failing — the pain involved with that is usually more tangible, the images more vivid. But that’s part of the unconscious mind’s brilliant way of keeping us from seeing the real fear. Success has all kinds of repercussions: higher expectations, possible jealousy from others and, the most dreaded of all, change. Failing seems like a cakewalk in comparison. But you deserve success, and the world deserves the difference you will make. Ihope this video helps you start clearing those blocks.

As with any of my tapping videos, this is an abbreviated process for releasing fear. Some folks may find their fear dissolves after just one tapping session, but for others, it will take some repetition, bringing the discomfort down little by little each time. (Still others may uncover specific issues that are best addressed directly with a wellness practitioner.) In any event, this brief video should help at least take the edge off the discomfort, freeing you up to enjoy life much more. Let us know how it helped you!

Have a specific fear you’d like to see featured in a future “Tap Out Your Fears” vlog? Comment below, or tweet us all about it @HealthyLiving using the hashtags #becomingfearless and #tapoutfear. If you tweet, you will automatically be entered into Toyota Corolla’s Most Fearless Tweet Contest! (Click here for the Official Rules.)

Tapping can sometimes bring up long-buried emotions, which is why I always ask folks to take full responsibility for their own well-being before tapping. For more information about that, please read this disclaimer.

Until next time, feel free to tap along with any of the many videos I have on YouTube or the many recordings I have at

Soul Companion Young Love After 50 Soul Companion by Mary Chapin Carpenter (with James Taylor) from her new album, Ashes and Roses, released June 12, 2012. For my family and friends.


All of our dreams are laid down and measured,
Arrows and pens and the rainbow of threat.
Like hope on a strain, sawn into the lightings
Or the courage to face beyond all the hell.

My sole companion, out in the world somewhere,
My sole companion, I will meet you there.

I’m packing my compass, trusted and tested,
My two dear maps to study unfold
Into a pocket, I’m traveling light now
All that we have is all that we own.

My sole companion, in my heart you are,
My sole companion, just like the stars.

There are no boarders, there are no boundaries
There are no fences up around me.
And I get quiet and I get lonely, just like everyone.

These are the old roads, these are the stations,
I look for my ride, you wait for your train.
These are the chances of lives and temptations
These are the places that don’t know I’m in.

My sole companion, I find it so great.
My sole companion, now our lives begin.
My sole companion, out in the world somewhere
My sole companion, I’ll meet you there.
My sole companion, my sole companion.
