After leaving Riga, Latvia, I flew to Manchester and caught the Pennines Express train to York, to be met there by my good friend Annette, prior to attending the conference of the ISRN(Incorporated Society of Naturopaths) a unique group who practice what is termed as "straight Naure Cure". This comprises teaching a simple natural lifestyle, and contrary to the usual practice of Naturopathy in the world today, does not use, nor does it advocate the use of, any form of medication, be it so-called, natural, or not. It is very much in line with the teachings of Natural Hygiene, and articles by the Thomson's, of the Kingston Clinic, in Edinburgh, were often published Dr Herbert M Shelton, in the Hygienic Review.
This is the group who attended the conference this year in York.
Here we are, that is those who were able to do so, at the conference dinner.
This was a very happy day indeed for both myself and Guna, as she was presented with her graduation Diploma from the Academy of Natural Living. This then enabled her to become a full member of the ISRN, and the GNC(General Naturopathic Council) in the UK.

Here we see our very competent secretary Alison introducing one of our speakers.
Alexander, an Osteopathic member presents a very enlightening, and most interesting address on his experiences, and benefits of home birthing.
I had the wonderful experience and great joy of spending a few days with Alexander and his wife Jasmine, and their two children at their delightful home prior to flying out to Canada.
Here is Alex and his wife and children as we walked in the woods enjoying the Spring sunshine. As can be observed, it was still very cold with each day there being the possibility of further showers.
